Tag Archives: Trump is a de facto Third Party President


Welcome back to Independent Voter site Balladeer’s Blog. I’ve made no secret of the fact that I feel neither Bill Clinton nor Donald Trump deserved impeachment. It’s a cheapening of the process. 

My reasons can even be found in the Democrats’ own Washington Post. Links are below but first some excerpts:

Kathleen Parker noted that “to (her) disappointment,” “the case for impeachment simply isn’t there.”

The even more fiercely anti-Trump David Von Drehle took shots at Democrats Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler for their strategy and tactics in this debacle which I feel has not convinced anyone that wasn’t ALREADY a Trump-hater.

Per Von Drehle: “This offense that House Democrats can’t be bothered to fully investigate, can’t be troubled to thoroughly document, can’t discipline themselves to coil into a mortal blow – this is the very worst thing any president could conceivably do?”

David also pointed out that Schiff has failed to pursue this investigation through the courts. (NOTE FROM BALLADEER: That’s because there is absolutely no proof of anything and Schiff seems to know it.) Continue reading

deneen borelliDeneen Borelli, one of Balladeer’s Blog’s Martin Luther King People of Courage, is another of the countless African-Americans proving that the old “Left vs Right,” “Democrat vs Republican” paradigm is more and more outdated the further we get into the 21st Century.

Borelli is part of Black Voices for Trump and has been touting the recent news that THREE MORE polls (NPR, Rasmussen and Marist) have shown de facto Third Party President Trump around 34-35% approval among voters of color. (Links below) Other polls have shown that approval at 39% or higher. Astronomical numbers for a political figure who is neither a true Republican nor a true Democrat.

. tracking poll finds total black approval at 34%. Democrats worst nightmare.

“It might shock Democrats that support for President Trump is rising with Black Americans but it shouldn’t,” Trump campaign Principal Deputy Communications Director Erin Perrine said. “Blacks are more prosperous than ever because of President Trump with record-low unemployment and rising paychecks.”

Schiff mintHere at Independent Voter Site Balladeer’s Blog I’ve made no secret of the fact that I feel neither Bill Clinton nor Donald Trump deserved impeachment. The Democrats’ Kafkaesque distortion of all previous impeachment procedures is alienating Independent Voters, as is their ridiculous reliance on nothing but HEARSAY against de facto Third Party President Donald Trump.

Even though the Democrats’ many media outlets shrilly insist President Trump is doomed (just like they told us during their absurd Russian Collusion fantasy and the Mueller Investigation) the latest Emerson Poll as well as polling information exclusive to the Democrats at Politico and at Vanity Fair show that the all-important Independent Voters (like yours truly) see through the Democrats’ fascist abuses and plan to vote for Trump again anyway.

pelosi moronThe Vanity Fair article was even headlined “‘It Is Hard to Read This as Anything but a Warning’: New Polling Suggests Democrats’ Impeachment Push Could Alienate Key Voters.”

The article (link below) read in part “Data exclusive to Vanity Fair shows impeachment could be a losing issue for Democrats hoping to recruit Independents in 2020. ‘Lots of people who don’t like Trump who are still prepared to vote for him,’ says one political science expert” and “Independents are also one of the keys, if not the key, to the 2020 elections.”

Two factors cited by the article: “The first is that, in their view, impeachment distracts from issues they care about. The second factor is the view among Independents that impeachment reflects the agenda of the political establishment and the media.” Also, per Ken Stern, that it’s “a continuation of the partisan bickering and media excess that began even before his inauguration.” 

schiff houseAnd let’s remember four crucial FACTS:

  • The two principals on the call, President Trump and President Zelensky, have both stated there was no linkage of any aid to Ukraine dependent on any investigation. NO MATTER WHAT OBAMA ADMINISTRATION HOLDOVERS CLAIM THEY HEARD OTHER PEOPLE SAY ABOUT THE CALL.
  • The Ukraine government had no idea that aid was being held back pending confirmation of the stable intent -no corruption- within the new Ukrainian administration.
  • President Zelensky didn’t announce, didn’t start, and didn’t acknowledge he was going to start any investigation to get the aid released; and it was released without contingencies.

Adam Schiff impeachable offensesWith even the anti-Trump Associated Press/ NORC poll showing that 59% of those polled see nothing impeachable in de facto Third Party President Donald Trump’s call to Ukraine’s president, Balladeer’s Blog offers another reminder that the increasingly deranged Democrats were trying to impeach him before he even took the oath of office.

From the Democrats at the Washington Post (Motto: “Democracy dies at our hands”) ON JANUARY 20th 2017:

Jan. 20, 2017 at 12:19 p.m. EST

The effort to impeach President Donald John Trump is already underway.

At the moment the new commander in chief was sworn in, a campaign to build public support for his impeachment went live …”

Democrat rat logo


Yes, Democrats, the party of slavery, the Ku Klux Klan, Jim Crow, the Japanese Internment, the Gulf of Tonkin lies, the Trail of Tears, the Spoils System and more now brings us the travesty of using impeachment just because the party’s candidate loses an election. The Democrats just won’t stop contributing ugliness, hatred and divisiveness to America’s political scene.

And remember, NONE of us can choose what country we are born in or what skin color we are born with but we sure as Hell CAN choose not to belong to such a disgusting #WalkAwaycollection of hatemongers and white-collar criminals. #WALKAWAY from the Democrats and become an Independent Voter.

Obama firing all bush ambassadorsWith America’s increasingly unhinged Democrats pretending it’s some sort of scandal that de facto Third Party President Donald Trump fired the insubordinate and partisan Marie “Tears of a Clown” Yovanovich as Ambassador to the Ukraine, here’s a reminder that ALL PRESIDENTS ARE FREE TO FIRE AMBASSADORS WHENEVER THEY WANT AND FOR ANY REASON. PRESIDENTS SET POLICY, NOT TENURED FUNCTIONARIES. 

Barack Obama fired ALL of the Bush administration’s ambassadors, so once again we see the Democrats and their media outlets blowing a situation all out of proportion to try to demonize every move made by President Trump. (I despised both Obama AND Bush so I have no dog in that particular fight.) Continue reading

Hot Rod trialSince Democrats are pretending that previously-stated HEARSAY claims about de facto Third Party President Trump are BOMBSHELL “revelations” it’s only fair that the term bombshells should also be applied to everything which exposes the Democrats for the lying and corrupt white-collar criminals that they are. (We need Third Parties). 

In a STUNNING DEVELOPMENT WHICH COMPLETELY EXONERATES PRESIDENT TRUMP, Congressman Devin Nunes, the ranking House Intelligence Committee member, deconstructed the Democrats’ lies and demonstrated that those Democrats are just using this kangaroo court impeachment “inquiry” as a variation on their ludicrous Russian Collusion nonsense which blew up in their faces.

Schiff jackhammerThe link is below, but first some excerpts from this HOUSE MEMBER UTTERLY DESTROYING THE THIRD AND FOURTH-HAND ACCUSATIONS AGAINST TRUMP:

“In a July open hearing following publication of the Mueller report, the Democrats engaged in a last ditch effort to convince the American people President Trump is a Russian agent. That hearing was a pitiful finale of a three year long effort by the Democrats, the corrupt media and partisan bureaucrats to overturn the results of the 2016 election. After the spectacular implosion of their Russia hoax on July 24…on July 25th, they turned on a dime and now claim the real malfeasance is (Trump’s) dealings with Ukraine,” Nunes said.”

Joe Biden brags about blackmailing the Ukraine“In the blink of an eye we are asked to simply forget about Democrats on this Committee falsely claiming they had more than circumstantial evidence of collusion between President Trump and Russians. We should forget about them reading fabrications of Trump-Russia collusion from the Steele dossier into the congressional records”

“We should also forget about them trying to obtain nude pictures of Trump from Russian pranksters who pretended to be Ukrainian officials. We should forget about them leaking a false story to CNN while he was still testifying to our Committee claiming Donald Trump Jr. was colluding with Wikileaks. And forget about countless other deceptions large and small that make them the last people on Earth with the credibility to hurl more preposterous accusations against their political opponents.”

Pelosi fake impeachment inquiry“And yet here we are,” he continued. “This is a carefully orchestrated media smear campaign.”

“Nunes also called out Schiff for refusing to bring relevant Republican witnesses …” (NOTE FROM BALLADEER: This power of Democrat Adam Schiff to prevent testimony from relevant witnesses who STAND BY THEIR STORIES THAT THE PRESIDENT DID NOTHING WRONG shows WHY the Democrats chose this pathetic neither-fish-nor-fowl impeachment “Inquiry” route instead of starting with a REAL impeachment proceeding.

Schiff as bozocopSince it’s just an “Inquiry” the Democrat majority in the House of Representatives simply voted for Inquiry “rules” which permit Adam Schiff (cartoon at right) to run this Show Trial. (Two Democrats showed some integrity and voted “No”)

If this was an ACTUAL impeachment it would be run by the House Judiciary Committee and President Trump’s supporters in the House would be able to call their own witnesses and let them speak openly instead of Schiff having the power to control the testimony by blocking certain subjects from being raised.

pelosi and schumer love illegal immigrantsHere at Balladeer’s Blog I’ve made it clear that I feel neither Donald Trump nor Bill Clinton deserved to be impeached, but at least Bill Clinton faced a fair, ACTUAL impeachment proceeding. The hopelessly corrupt Democrats are subjecting President Trump to a bizarre “Impeachment INQUIRY” which deprives him and the House Republicans of any rights they would have under a REAL impeachment procedure.

What the Democrats are launching today is the public version of the Beria-style Show Trial they’ve been running to replace their failed Russian Collusion farce. Here are some excerpts from a terrific piece about the fascist railroading that Democrats are running. Link is below:

From Roger Simon – like me a former Democrat driven away by what the party has become:

Adam Schiff faceThe crime they (the Democrats) are trying to show is, well… nothing that is real. As in Stalin’s time, what is about to go public Wednesday for everybody to watch is naught but a “show trial,” much like the trial of the British engineers and the yet more ominous Great Purge. Only it is an opéra bouffe version led by Adam Schiff (photo at right), a failed screenwriter with a proven inability to distinguish fact from fiction. Thank God there’s no Gulag where he can send people.”

Biden scandal“But let’s give a look at what he and his cronies claim they are trying to show—some kind of presidential corruption regarding Ukraine. Some so-called whistleblower with a name no one’s supposed to know but everybody does (Ciaramella) accused Trump of threatening Ukrainian President Zelensky umpteen times with withholding U.S. aid if Zelensky did not investigate the activities of his political opponent and the opponent’s son.”

Biden crooked“As it turned out, when the transcript of the actual phone call was produced, it was a good deal less than that. It’s likely the hyperpartisan whistleblower, who never heard the call in the first place, lied through his teeth for political reasons he thinks—in all his virtue-signaling narcissism—are justified.”

NOTE FROM BALLADEER: And besides, MANY presidential administrations have used the threat of withholding American aid as leverage when pursuing their goals. Obama did it to Israel. Democrats running for president are threatening to do that AGAIN to Israel if they get elected. Yes, with a complete lack of self-awareness their own candidates are promising to do what they claim is an impeachable offense when President Trump does it.

            And remember, we know that Obama used THE UKRAINE to get info on Trump’s campaign manager in 2016.

Joe Biden smile“… Also not allowed is any word on the father-son corruption (Biden und Sohn) which is clearly monstrous, worth millions, even billions, and has a direct effect on our relationship with China (which old Joe, the law school plagiarist, assured us was fine and not to be concerned about).

But the actual “favor” (that was the word used) being asked for on the phone by Trump to Zelensky was about CrowdStrike, not about the Bidens, who were an afterthought … It’s the digital firm with roots in California and Ukraine that was hired by the Clinton-associated law firm Perkins Coie to investigate the break-in of the DNC server during election 2016. When CS reported it was the Russians, that was accepted at face value by the FBI. Why the FBI, with all their vaunted cyber facilities, did not do this themselves is open to question—and everybody in the Beltway cesspool knows it, all the despicable creeps wringing their hands over Trump. Omertà rules in Washington, especially among the Democrats and the media (of all places).”

Trump resisting the Deep State“They all know that the real investigation is in progress—what happened early in 2016 and thereafter that instigated the two-plus years of phony national hysteria known as the Russia probe, the probe that did everything it could, but thankfully failed, to upend the Trump administration. The characters who engineered this shouldn’t just be impeached—some have already lost their jobs—they should be sent to stir.”

This whole show trial would just be an amusing farce in the farcical land of D.C. politics were it not for one thing—it just could (not likely, but could) be successful. And if it is, that’s the end of our country as we know it. Half of our citizens will feel completely disenfranchised. Where it will go from there is anybody’s guess.” Continue reading
