NEW YORK TIMES OP-ED ON THE POMPOSITY OF THE AMERICAN LEFT’S TRUMP-HATERS

Obama pen and phoneHere’s another blog post where I take a break from pointing out how the American Left’s unbearable pomposity and snobbery have driven away so many of us who used to consider ourselves part of it. This time my points are being made in a New York Times Op-Ed by Gerard Alexander, a professor of political science at the University of Virginia. 

He uses the out of date term Liberals to describe them. If anything they are Illiberals and Left-Wing Archie Bunkers. The link is below, but first some excerpts:

“(Left-Wing Archie Bunkers) are not as smart, or as persuasive, as they think.”

“Liberals dominate the entertainment industry, many of the most influential news sources and America’s universities. … But this makes liberals feel more powerful than they are.”

“In fact, liberals may be more effective at causing resentment than in getting people to come their way.”

“Liberals are trapped in a self-reinforcing cycle. When they use their positions in American culture to lecture, judge and disdain, they push more people into an opposing coalition that liberals are increasingly prone to think of as deplorable. That only validates their own worst prejudices about the other America.” Continue reading

SOME RECENT POLITICAL CARTOONS

mascot new look donkey and elephant headsHere’s a look at two of the most recent. For newbies, I had been a Democrat for much of my life until Obama’s disastrous and damaging presidency helped motivate me to become an Independent Voter. His callous, clueless, comfortable and uncaring supporters helped, too. I distrust both the Democrats and the Republicans. Trump is a de facto Third Party President.

TRUMP EFFECT: ELEVEN-YEAR HIGH PERCENTAGE OF AMERICANS SAY THINGS ARE GOING WELL PLUS MORE …

Kanye Democrat PlantationBalladeer’s Blog has long emphasized the need for Third Parties in America since the Democrats and Republicans are just rival gangs of white collar criminals.

De facto Third Party President Donald Trump isn’t really a Republican – Republicans themselves often remind all of us of that – he just commandeered their political party apparatus.

Trump triELEVEN YEAR HIGH PERCENT OF AMERICANS SAY THINGS ARE GOING WELL – CNN’s own polling is telling us this – which means the figure is probably even higher than the 59% they quoted. At any rate , I always make it clear that after the 2016 election I don’t trust polls and surveys done by the corporate media but Trump-hating fascists eat, sleep and breathe by such polls and surveys so I periodically have fun mentioning results like this.

It’s always hilarious to watch those people IMMEDIATELY go from pretending polls are sacred indicators to pretending they aren’t at all accurate if there’s a result they don’t like.  

Obama clown

THIS BUFFOON IS LIVING PROOF WHY WE NEED THIRD PARTIES.

TEARS OF A CLOWN – The weak, inept and crooked little man named Barack Obama was sniveling and whining about President Trump – make that de facto Third Party President Donald Trump – trashing Barry’s pathetically one-sided Iran Deal.

I guess Barry’s worried that this jeopardizes his name as the Father of the Iranian Nuclear Weapons Program.

Eric SchneidermanSAMANTHA BEE STUPID – The relentlessly unfunny Samantha Bee looked like an even bigger fool than she usually does recently after New York’s Democrat Attorney General Eric Schneiderman – whom she praised and groveled for in an interview – had to resign amid #METOO accusations of brutal VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN. At least FOUR accusers have come forward.

Schneiderman’s reps have been saying his explanation is that the violence was all consensual BDSM “games” in which he would abuse the women – and in the case of a woman of color among the accusers – allegedly made her call him “Master.” 

AGAIN, DEMOCRATS ARE ALWAYS LECTURING THE REST OF US ABOUT ATTITUDES TOWARD WOMEN AND VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN BUT IT TURNS OUT TO BE AS HYPOCRITICAL AS IF PRIESTS LECTURED THE REST OF US ABOUT NOT MOLESTING LITTLE BOYS. 

AND NEEDLESS TO SAY, AT LEAST ONE OF THE ACCUSERS MENTIONED HOW OTHER DEMOCRAT FEMALES PRESSURED HER NOT TO COME FORWARD JUST BECAUSE SCHNEIDERMAN WAS A DEMOCRAT! WHAT A BUNCH OF “HANDMAIDS.” “IS THIS WHAT FEMINISM LOOKS LIKE?” 

Y’know, Samantha, when your only criteria for hero-worship is that the figure you bow down to criticizes Trump (Bee even called Schneiderman a “superhero”) you’re always going to be vulnerable to the kind of humiliation this incident brings down on you.

Lloyd Marcus newLLOYD MARCUS: DESPITE THE MEDIA, TRUMP PULLING DOWN WINS FOR WE THE PEOPLE – As I always mention, Lloyd is religious and I’m a non-believer.

But aside from his religious remarks I find his take on Trump’s triumphs very interesting. Among many other items he mentions Kanye West being the latest African-American to break away from the Democrat Plantation.

TRUMP CARDS: MAY 8th

mascot new look donkey and elephant headsIt’s no secret that I consider President Trump to be America’s first de facto Third Party President, nor that I consider him to be the new Franklin Roosevelt AND the new JFK. He has accomplished a great deal for the working class and the poor and I’m not going to ignore all that just because the violent fascists and moronic conformists who hate him whine about him 24/7. These are historic times kicked off when Trump shattered the glass ceiling in November of 2016.

JUDGE ELLIS – Judge Ellis has excellently pointed out how out of line and ridiculously crooked Mueller’s absurd “investigation” is. (Most Trump-haters won’t even know who Judge Ellis is since the only thing they know about our political system is that Trump is the president. They’re in over their heads beyond that.)

(And by the way, for you Trump-hating morons who like to sound so butch I’ll advise you right now I’m NOT a conservative, which means I won’t let you get away with lies and misrepresentations like they do and I won’t be the least bit intimidated by what you imbeciles apparently think is blistering language. Okay? Or as you bitchy little boys like to say “M’kay?”)  

The link to the whole piece is below, but first some excerpts per Reuters: 

“I don’t see what relationship this indictment has with anything the special counsel is authorized to investigate,” U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III in the Eastern District of Virginia said.

Mueller Witch HuntAt a tense hearing at the federal courthouse in Alexandria, Virginia, the judge said Mueller should not have “unfettered power” in his Russia probe and that the charges against Manafort did not arise from the investigation into Moscow’s alleged meddling in the 2016 U.S. election. 

“It’s unlikely you’re going to persuade me the special counsel has unfettered power to do whatever he wants[.]” … “Our investigative scope does cover the activity in the indictment,” Dreeben [the Department’s deputy solicitor general] told the judge.

“Cover bank fraud in 2005 and 2007?  Tell me how!” Ellis retorted. …

During the oral arguments, Ellis repeatedly chided Mueller’s $10 million budget.

Trumping KimHe also asked whether Rosenstein, who oversees the probe and is considered an important witness into whether Trump tried to obstruct justice, is recused from the case.

And he repeatedly claimed that the indictment appeared to serve as a way for Mueller to “assert leverage” over Manafort. …

Rosenstein’s May 2017 order laying out the scope of the probe, [Dreeben] told the judge, did not reveal all the details because they involve sensitive national security and counterintelligence matters that could not be divulged publicly, but were conveyed to Mueller.

Ellis balked, saying Dreeben’s answer essentially means the Justice Department was “not really telling the truth[.]” …

[Ellis] directed Mueller’s office to take two weeks to consult with U.S. intelligence agencies to see if they will sign off so that he can personally review a sealed, unredacted version of the memo.

Dreeben told him the redacted portions did not pertain to the Manafort case.

“I’ll be the judge,” Ellis said.  

James Woods, actor, tweeted: “I can’t in my lifetime remember when a case of this import featured a judge calling the prosecutor a liar from the bench. This is a landmark moment.” Continue reading

ASK BALLADEER: GOVERNMENT SPENDING

Mascot with demo and repub headsWhen Balladeer’s Blog’s readers ask me for my genuine, actual opinion on a given subject I’m always glad to oblige. So here is the latest question and my 100% sincere opinion with no jokes or sarcasm.

Q: Your origins on the Left always show in how much you talk about preserving Social Security and Medicare. How do you really feel about government spending and getting it under control?

A: That requires a two-part answer. Part One: I think that America’s Third-World level cesspool of corruption that masquerades as a government is so far gone that the type of bloated spending packages which are so confusing that almost nobody can really tell where all the money is going have become the very raison d’etre of the Swamp.

THAT is how the corruption that is part and parcel of the Swamp operates and the Swamp-Dwellers will fight to protect it like the proverbial Iroquois sorcerer protecting their hidden heart. 

That means I think that elected officials who want to get government spending under control need to grow up and accept the fact that a move like that (getting spending under control) will have to be the end goal, not the initial battle. In video game terms it will have to be the Boss Fight, something that you get to engage in after fighting your way through several other layers of corruption and graft.

mascot new look donkey and elephant headsI support President Trump’s efforts to Drain the Swamp but as we have seen he is making virtually a one-man stand. Both Democrats and Republicans oppose his efforts to put teeth to anti-corruption measures. It will be an uphill fight for him to simply continue the good work he has already accomplished for the poor and the working class, let alone control spending, which is, as I stated above, a desirable goal but one which he will need more bodies in Congress to accomplish.

It’s not something you can trust party labels on, since Republican Trash like Paul Ryan and John “Let’s fight wars all over the planet” McCain have been some of the biggest obstacles. Continue reading

POLITICAL FORTUNE COOKIES

Welcome back to Balladeer’s Blog, the only site on the web that equally criticizes both Democrats AND Republicans. I think we need Third Parties urgently.

POLITICAL FORTUNE COOKIES

mascot new look donkey and elephant headsFor condescending Democrats who can’t understand why working class and poor people OF ALL COLORS have come to despise them: “Just because you never have to deal with the negative consequences of all the wrong-headed and damaging policies that you pursue, don’t ever forget the suffering people who DO have to deal with those negative consequences.”

For American “teachers” (LMAO): “People who say that teaching is a political act should never be trusted with authority over vulnerable young minds.”

For Republican office-holders: “Governments spend money. Just deal with it.”

For Democrat Fascists on college campuses: “Remember the Best and the Brightest? You’re the Worst and the Dumbest.”

For Democrats in General: “Wherever there is disagreement it is NOT just one side who is being divisive.”

For YouTube users: “There is always Vid.me … A far superior setup.”

For Barack Obama: “Your shame over your horrible college grades is exceeded only by your shame over being such a weak, inept and crooked little man.”

For delusional Hillary supporters who are still making excuses for her humiliating loss to President Donald Trump, the new FDR and the new JFK: “H.C. is for Hillary Clinton … Also for Heinous Crimes … And Haiti Crusher … And for Human Cockroach.”
