Per the recent Harvard/ Harris Poll Hispanic Americans support de facto Third Party President Donald Trump on immigration enforcement (65%) and not allowing illegal immigrants to vote (73%). Despite the tired old cliches pushed by the Democrats’ media outlets (I’m an Independent Voter) President Trump garnered more of the Hispanic vote in 2016 than Mitt Romney got in 2012. That puts the lie to assumptions that Hispanic Americans are offended by immigration enforcement.
Recently praise for President Trump on all this and more came from the New Mexico chapter of Latinos for Trump. The links are below, but first some excerpts:
“Michaela Chavez (not pictured) is a former Democrat who says she’s been a supporter of Donald Trump from Day One. She likes how his administration is handling the economy and feels he’s negotiating better trade deals for the country.” (Note from Balladeer: I’m a former Democrat, too, now Independent.)
“And when it comes to immigration, the Albuquerque resident supports the president’s desire to build a wall on the Mexican border.”
“I’m all for immigration, as long as it is done the right way,” she said.
“Chavez is convinced Trump is building a better future for her family.”
“Ernie Salazar weighed in: ““Hispanic unemployment is at a historical low,” he said. “African American unemployment is at a historic low. He’s (Trump’s) taking care of people of color. If you look in a box of crayons, you’ll see a white crayon, too.”
Valencia County alone, which traditionally votes Democrat, went for Trump in 2016.
Marcella Trujillo Melendez said “I believe that he knows his job. His job is Continue reading
Hello again, everyone! Like FAQ’s I figured I’d address these questions I’ve been asked a lot lately. And thank you for the good wishes regarding recent family hospitalizations.
Q: Will you ever get back to examining ancient Greek comedies?
A: Yes, I will. As regular readers know I have already done dozens and I needed to step back a little for awhile. Now I’m revved up again and will resume soon.
Q: Will you ever resume your fictional look at a Second American Civil War?
A: No. Real-world events started to exceed my fictional takes in some ways.
Time for another look at how fascist Democrats have distorted the “educational system” (LMAO) and transformed schools, colleges and universities into churches of irrational thought and political intolerance.
NORTH CAROLINA – A Union County teacher at Cuthbertson High School is being investigated for allegedly telling her students that the Vice President should be “shot in the head.” Sounds like more of that “tolerance” that Democrats are forever lecturing everyone about. For that story click HERE
For several more of these types of stories: Continue reading
Here at Balladeer’s Blog my skepticism of polling during such an odd time period is well known. In fact, bizarrely enough, I’d like to see a poll regarding how many people distrust polls!
Anyway, a recent poll (link below) found 95% of the respondents were distrustful of the corporate media (and with very good reason). Some of the reasons cited were “spreading fake news”, “propaganda instead of news”, “reporting gossip” and “celebrity opinions.”
On the plus side it’s nice to see that mass media dishonesty has united the rest of us. Getting 95% of the public in any poll to agree on something is the kind of thing that only monumental dishonesty could engender. Continue reading
According to Reuters and the University of New Hampshire Institute on Disability disabled Americans are entering the work force at a greatly increased rate compared to prior to 2017.

Independent Voter site Balladeer’s Blog, the Open City of America, takes a look at a parallel Earth today. As usual this is the only site on the ‘net that is truly non-partisan in its criticism of left-wing and right-wing zealots.
Several years ago a big deal was made over whether or not the 9-11 attacks could have been prevented by greater coordination between elements of the forever corrupt intelligence community. Amid the predictable partisan bickering and childish finger- pointing that characterized the 9-11 Commission and its findings an important consideration was overlooked.
That consideration was how events would have unfolded if the attacks had actually been thwarted. Let’s take a quick look at both the leftist idiocy and the right-wing idiocy that would have followed.
THE LEFTIST IDIOCY –
*** The insecure American Left always feels that the only officially “intellectual” thing to do is to take sides against one’s own country no matter what the situation is. I agree there are plenty of times when reasonable people WILL take sides against their own country, but with American leftists the rest of us have learned to just yawn and listen with amusement while they twist logic as severely as they have to in order to stick to their apparent loyalty to “everyone who hates America, right or wrong.”
*** The sheer unlikelihood of the 9-11 attacks would have served as the springboard for the leftists’ attack on the opposition party’s intelligence services foiling those attacks.
*** Leftists would have scoffed at the notion that the attacks could have ever succeeded. They would have ridiculed that possibility and made remarks like: “So the Bush administration would have us believe that this perfectly charming Mr Mohamed Atta and his friends would have succeeded in multiple plane hijackings and then, with the minimal pilot training they had, manage to fly those planes with pinpoint accuracy into the World Trade Center towers! Where- EVER does that cowboy in the White House get such notions?”
*** The default argument of all leftists is that the only people in the world that are irredeemably evil are Americans and they feel it is bigotry to ever suspect anyone else of any ugly intentions. They would have insisted the intelligence services nabbed Atta and his accomplices based solely on “racist” or “Islamophobic” assumptions. They’d have insisted it was “A Sacco and Vanzetti story for the 21st Century.”
( By the way, if you’re not sure if you’re an American leftist or not here’s a quick guide: If you’re condescendingly assuming that other people won’t understand the Sacco and Vanzetti reference then you just might be an American leftist!) Continue reading
Martin Luther King Person of Courage Isaiah Washington, famous from Grey’s Anatomy, has joined so many of us former Democrats in choosing to #WALKAWAY from that political party.
Washington cited his disillusionment with the Democrats’ empty lip service to the African-American community, lip service which they abandon after election day. That stands in stark contrast to President Trump, who has provided very real help to the working class and poor of ALL colors. The link is below, but first some excerpts:
“A recent study found that Democrats represent the worst congressional districts in the country when it comes to black Americans falling behind whites. Robert Johnson, America’s first black billionaire, gave President Donald Trump an “A+” on the economy.”
“In April, Washington announced he was considering supporting Trump. He said he had voted for Obama twice, but didn’t see progress under Obama.”
“The reason why I chose to walk away from the Democratic Party … something doesn’t feel right. I’m walking away I don’t know where I’m going, but I know where I come from.” Continue reading
