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

asra-nomaniAnd we have another member for the real-life League of Extraordinary Women! Her name is Asra Q Nomani, an outspoken critic of the reactionary elements of Islam. She also authored a courageous op-ed piece for the Washington Post‘s website.

Asra added her voice to those of other Trump voters of color disproving the Democrats’ claim that only eeeeevillll white people voted for Trump. The link is below, but first some excerpts: 

“This is my confession — and explanation: I — a 51-year-old, a Muslim, an immigrant woman ‘of color’ — am one of those silent voters for Donald Trump.”

asra-nomani-2“And I’m not a ‘bigot,’ ‘racist,’ ‘chauvinist’ or ‘white supremacist,’ as Trump voters are being called, nor part of some ‘whitelash.”

She goes on to explain that she is a “single mother who can’t afford health insurance under Obamacare,” and a “liberal Muslim who has experienced, first-hand, Islamic extremism in this world.”

Nomani, who says she has been a lifelong liberal (Note from Balladeer: So was I until American Liberals decided Muslim extremists were above reproach), explained that she did not decide to announce her support of Trump publicly until after the election when she “found it offensive that Trump voters were being dismissed as uneducated white voters.” Nomani has courageously dealt with the backlash from the increasingly hate-filled American Left. (Search on-line for the deranged responses to her op-ed.)

asra-nomani-3American Liberals are so anxious to discredit Muslims like Asra who DON’T hate the Western World and to depict them as if they aren’t “authentic.” (As I often point out, to the bullying fascists of American Liberalism, the only “authentic” voices of groups that those American Liberals think they “own” are the voices that agree with every word that American Liberals say.)  

“(W)e as reformers hear all sorts of charges of not being Muslim from the extremists within our community,” Asra went on. (Note from Balladeer – This then allows the cowardly hypocrites of American Liberalism to claim that the Muslims criticizing elements of Islam aren’t “really” Muslims.) Continue reading

Obama DerpWelcome back to Balladeer’s Blog, the only site on the web that criticizes American Liberals and American Conservatives equally. Presented for your convenience is this week’s handy guide to the latest disasters and embarrassments of the Obama administration – the most laughable and larcenous in American history.

A. IT’S A MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD WORLD – Mad Magazine, an American institution for decades, unleashed their latest anti- Obama broadside: a mock version of the Saving Private Ryan movie posters ridiculing Little Barry’s absurd and ill- considered deal to release FIVE Al Qaeda heavy- hitters in exchange for AN AMERICAN DESERTER SUSPECTED OF COLLABORATING WITH HIS CAPTORS!?
