It started with William Howard Taft

By Joseph Ballin 1/3/2018 8:16 am EST

People always wonder how we got to Trump. How did the GOP lose it’s mind? Where did everything go so wrong? This all didn’t start with Trump, go back to Mitt Romney, well actually go back to McCain, well actually go back to George W. Bush Jr., well actually go back to Bob Dole, well actually go back to George H. W. Bush, well actually go back to Ronald Reagan, well actually go back to Gerald Ford, well actually go back to Richard Nixon, well actually go back to Barry Goldwater, well actually go back to Dwight D. Eisenhower, well actually go back to Thomas E. Dewey, well actually go back to Wendell Willkie, well actually go back to Alf Landon, well actually go back to Herbert Hoover, well actually go back to Calvin Coolidge, well actually go back to Warren G. Harding, well actually go back to Charles Evans Hughes, and finally we get to William Howard Taft.

I did that to show you that this cancer that that has infected the Republican Party and later the Democratic party has been around for a long time, and has historically go by different names over the years. Regan ran on “trickle down economics”, also called “voodoo economics” by his very own vice president George W. H. Bush. Coolidge ran on “Less government in business and more business in government.” One of the earliest critics of trickle down economics was Democratic presidential candidate William Jennings Bryan, a political hero of mine, who would say the following about that issue, “There are two ideas of government. There are those who believe that if you just legislate to make the well-to-do prosperous, that their prosperity will leak through on those below. The Democratic idea has been that if you legislate to make the masses prosperous their prosperity will find its way up and through every class that rests upon it.” Bryan not only was the Democratic presidential candidate several times, he also changed the party platform of the Democratic party to move away from the Bourbon Democrats like Cleveland who governed as fiscal conservatives. Imagine if Sanders won the Democratic nominee and somehow managed to change the entire platform and party structure of the Democratic Party.

The Republican Party also saw an insurgency of it’s own on the progressive and nationalist side. Theodore Roosevelt was the vice president of William McKinley, until McKinley’s assassination by an anarchist. Roosevelt was trusteed into the presidency. During the time just before the United States entered World War 1, America was at it’s height in terms of the power of unions and radical movements in the US. We had anarchists, Wobblies, Socialist Party candidates receiving a million voters in a presidential election, etc. It was an era of American history called the “Pogressive Era”. Roosevelt came into the presidency dealing with a Republican Party that since at least the 1880s had sold out to big business and the intrests of the robber barons.

Roosevelt went to war with big industry, enacting break up of big corporations, who would later go on to merge together due to neglect, protecting our national parks, his “Square Deal” social welfare program, brought about the birth of our national parks, and brought an end to the Russo-Japanese war without involving US troops. It would be later he would be held up by Congress who refused to enact his progressive agenda. Roosevelt did not run again in 1908 and William Howard Taft. However, Taft was a conservative and refused to continue Roosevelt’s progressive. Roosevelt felt betrayed by Taft and the Republican establishment. After losing the nomination to Taft and created his own third party, the Pogressive Party. The Pogressive Party platform called for the following:

* Strict limits and disclosure requirements on political campaign contributions
* Registration of lobbyists
* Recording and publication of Congressional committee proceedings
* A National Health Service to include all existing government medical agencies.
* Social insurance, to provide for the elderly, the unemployed, and the disabled
* Limited the ability of judges to order injunctions to limit labor strikes.
* A minimum wage law for women
* An eight-hour workday
* A federal securities commission
* Farm relief
* Workers’ compensation for work-related injuries
* An inheritance tax
* Women’s suffrage
* Direct election of Senators
* Primary elections for state and federal nominations
* The recall election (citizens may remove an elected official before the end of his term)
* The referendum (citizens may decide on a law by popular vote)
* The initiative (citizens may propose a law by petition and enact it by popular vote)
* Judicial recall (when a court declares a law unconstitutional, the citizens may override that ruling by popular vote).

Kept in mind this was in 1912 his platform was purposed, not 2016. What America would look like today if Roosevelt didn’t lose control of the Republican Party to the right wing of the party, which caused the Republican Party to turn far right and the Democratic Party to move to the right wing, is up for debate. However, Taft refusing to continue Rooesevlt’s progressive policies would inevitably lead to the rise of Harding, Coolidge, Hoover, who would massively slash US taxes (The top marginal rate was reduced annually in four stages from 73% in 1921 to 25% in 1925.), lead to a massive economic bubble in the US, with massive inequality and most of the US being ruled as a police state by the KKK, and finally the collapse of 1929. Trump’s 2017 tax cut will go down in history in the same way the Harding tax cuts went, a complete economic collapse of the global economy. My only hope is this time we learn our lesson.

My Nemesis: Michael “the Brooklyn Bubble Boy” Brooks

Imagine a world where Donald Trump himself called me and my friends dumb. Trumpie himself just starts calling out me, Jimmy Dore, Tim Black, HA Goodman, the Sane Progressive, Jamal Thomas, Nico House, Joe Ballin, Joe 30-pack, Coolcat, labels us all the “dumb dumb left”. If Donald gave me any attention like that, you can be sure I would spend ALL my time attacking him in return in a war of words, song, and the general mayhem known as “All the Hypocrisy Podcast”.

The same would go true if any of the other dark figures on the “alt-right” internet called me and my friends at dumb.  I would sling my words at them. Plenty of ammunition when it comes to hypocrisy that I could use on these people. But, sadly, no republicans are shitting on me and my friends.

Michael Brooks shits on us. Brooksy is not an evil hateful figure, but he chooses to call me and my friends out as dumb, for no other reason than to make himself appear smart. Its’s part of his act- cloak himself as a “true progressive” while shitting on the other progressives for being dumb. His divisive strategy is entirely selfish. He wants his viewers to feel comfortable in a bubble of arrogant contempt. Everything he says is tailored around this theme. That’s the world I live in. Brooks is the monster I will have to deal with. He wants to mock what we are doing here at all the hypocrisy dot com. I have warned him many times to drop his “dumb dumb left” bullshit. I was happy for him to start a show of his own. I do not watch TMBS. I decided to ignore him for a while and let his show grow without my involvement, but he never stops with the bullshit I hear on the Majority Report. Brooksy lives off of insulting all the various “tracks” that existing and his narrow “brooklyn bubble boy” track is the only way to steer clear of his insults. Many times he will insult the viewpoint of someone who is white or sounds a certain way, then you will hear a person of color speak the same thing and he will let it pass.  Brooks breaks this rule when he routinely insults Tim Black.

Here is the insane thing about Brooks. Although in theory we agree on most all issues, his viewpoints seem to always be formed in a way that will annoy me. He hates everything that I love, everything that gives me hope.  For example, in classic Hill-bot form, (although Brooks likes to score points by putting down Hill-bots he acts like one all the time), Brooksy likes to put down Tulsi Gabbard.

There are so many reasons that I love Tulsi Gabbard, and yes she is nice looking! And she has a great delivery of speeches, and she is also very clever with interviews and questions. The people of Hawaii love her even more than I do. She speaks out against “regime change wars” and she is for legal weed. If you like Barack Obama, then you better love Tulsi, but Brooksy shows his true colors by shitting on her. Its pathetic.

The door is always open for Brooks to come on “All the Hypocrisy Podcast” to defend his selfish and divisive viewpoints, but he refuses to to so. That is what pisses me off more than anything. The appearance of bravado that Brooksy displays does nothing to hide his cowardice. He pretends that my web site does not matter, nor to my views. All that matters is that he stays well insulated in his comfortable Brooklyn Bubble.

Let this post serve as notice to Brooks and his ilk. We are ready to defend out principles. We have been ahead of the curve. We knew Hillary had no chance of winning WHEN IT ACTUALLY MATTERED!!! There is no excuse for nominating Hillary Clinton.

So whatever this issue at hand, you can trust those people who were ahead of the curve in the past. We must throw out the people who pretend to be smart and start listening to those who have a fucking track record. That was the whole idea of how Obama beat Clinton. We won’t accept people who voted for the Iraq war.

I don’t fear a debate because my philosophy is consistent, and history rarely proves me wrong, and if it does I try to EMBRACE WHAT I WAS WRONG ABOUT AND REVISIT MY THINKING!!!!   But this shit-head Brooks was saying dumb dumb left before Hillary lost, and he is still saying it afterwards.


The hypocrisy heard round the world

By Joseph Ballin 11/21/2017 4:45 AM EST

When I heard that Roy Moore was a rapist pedophile, I can’t say I was shocked. How many more (no pun intended) times do we have to hear about a Christian evangelical who wears his (and I do mean his) religion on his shoulder as a holy roller, only to be revealed to be a fraud? What I don’t get is why I haven’t heard the name Dennis Hastart brought up once during all this? Dennis Hastart was the LONGEST Republican Speaker of the House ever, period. And decades prior to that, revealed only after he left the speakership, that he had molested little boys as a football couch. Keep in mind as Speaker of the House, Dennis Hastart brought up and voted in favor of the 2004 and 2006 constitutional amendments to ban same-sex marriage in the US Constitution. Roy Moore is also another Bush Jr. era leftover crazy. Prior to Roy Moore being outed a rapist pedophile, Republicans seemed to be perfectly ok with supporting this piece of shit subhuman. Let’s take a look at some of the crazy batshit insane shit that Roy Moore said that should ban him from being elected dog caughter:

* Roy Moore in 2005: Homosexual “conduct” should be illegal
* Roy Moore in 2017: 9/11 was god’s judgement on America
* Roy Moore in 2005: Opposes repealing Jim Crow era segregationist amendments to the Alabama State Constitution
* Roy Moore on Barrack Obama: Obama was born in Kenyan, spreading the racist birther conspiracy theory
* Roy Moore in 2003: Removed from the Alabama Supreme Court for trying to keep up the 10 commandment statutes
* Roy Moore in 2016: Removed from the Alabama Supreme Court AGAIN for not enforcing same-sex marriage ruling
* Roy Moore in 2006: Keith Ellison shouldn’t be seated because he’s a Muslim
* Roy Moore doesn’t believe non-Christians are protected by the 1st amendment
* Roy Moore is a creationist and climate change denier
* Roy Moore is a Israeli apartheid supporter
* Roy Moore thinks DACA recipients should be deported
* Roy Moore has voted CONSITENTLY against rape victims and in favor of rapists
* Roy Moore casted the sole vote in favor of a man who raped a four-year-old

And that’s just the tip of the ice berg. So let me give you the short version, Roy Moore is a Nazi long before this pedo stuff broke and all these Republicans who endorsed him BEFORE the pedo story broke, but ceased to do so afterword’s are gigantic hypocrites.

And another thing that’s really hypocritical is Donald “Gram em by the pussy” Trump. I’ve seen two tweets from Donald Trump about Al Franken’s sexual misconduct, but none one tweet or one word about Roy Moore, or even his own past comments like “when you are a star they let you do it.” If it was a black person he would spend the next couple centuries tweeting and attacking them because Trump’s cracker racist to his core. Billy Bush, at the time an anchor for Access Hollywood, was fired for that tape, but if you a Republican presidential candidate you are punished by being elected president. What does that tell you about Republican voters and their views towards women? All these vermin who spent decades ranting about gays, or immorality, Bill Clinton being impeached over a blow job, banning sex toys, etc. And fast word to 2017 and the modern day Christian right can be summed up that they were just full of shit the whole time. And yet they will still pretend they are the party of GWAD!

GOP = Grand Old Pedophiles

2017 election results: victory for the left

By Joseph Ballin 11/15/ 2017 6:59 AM EST

For all the Hillarybots out there, I have just one question for you. Do you think we would have seen the left wing landslide win we saw last week if Hillary Clinton was president? As Jimmy Dore pointed out several times, Trump is a disaster, Trump can’t get anything done, he is destroying the Republican Party, and it’s better we get an ineffective fascist now, than an effective fascist later.

Andrea Jenkins (Minnesota Democratic–Farmer–Labor Party) was elected to the 8th Ward of the Minneapolis City Council. She is first African American openly trans woman to be elected to office in the United States. She was endorsed by Our Revolution. She’s very active in the trans community, including Trans Lives Matter. She’s a civil rights icon and a personal hero of mine.


Lee Carter (Democratic Party/Democratic Socialists of America) was elected to the 50th district of the Virginia House of Delegate. He beat Jackson Miller, the majority whip for the Republicans in the Virginia House of Delegates. He won with almost no support from the Virginia Democratic Party.


Larry Krasner (Democratic Party) was elected 26th District Attorney (DA) of Philadelphia. He beat Republican Beth Grossman. A lot of people don’t know DAs have vast power, they can choose which cases they want to peruse or not. Larry is pro-BLM, anti-death penalty (won’t hear a single death penalty case), anti-war on drugs, pro-Occupy wallstreet, wants to reign in the police.


Seema Singh Perez (Democratic Socialists of America) was elected to Third district of the Knoxville City Council. She is the first Indian-American elected council member.


Maine Question 2 was passed by Maine voters over the objections of Governor Paul LePage (biggest douche in a governorship). It expands Medicaid in the state of Maine. This is very good because Maine is an older state, a lot of Medicaid goes to pay for costs of old folks homes. LePage wants to delay this as much as possible just like anything else he touches.

Other interesting notes from this election. The Washington state legislature flipped Democratic and the Virginia House of Delegates is still in recount over who controls the chamber. In the Georgia state legislature, Democrats won three key seats there, making Republicans lose their super majority there.
