    Welcome to "The Village"!

    The nature of a good man includes not supporting liars (such as Barack Hussein Obama and all the other "Democrats") and not supporting the Democratic Party in the United States of America and not supporting communists and socialists and Shariaists--communism and socialism and Sharia (Islamic Law, pushed along by Muslims) are rotten political systems, and when the political systems get into the thinking processes of people and communities, they lead to corruption and violence and moral decay, and the systems corrupt everything, even police departments, as has been proved through the results of the U.S. Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Central Intelligence Agency under the Barack Hussein Obama administration (at least) since 2009.  In Michigan, there are a number of towns or cities that support communism and socialism and Sharia.  By the way, Sharia involves the man-created feature of "Allah," which is a piece of shit.  Arbor Arbor and Traverse City are two big cities that are havens for communists and the like, and Flint and Detroit are other such cities, and Detroit and Flint have a lot of black racists.  Yet another rotten city is Royal Oak--a northern suburb of Detroit--which is loaded with communists and socialists and the like, especially in the form on young people.  Something came to me recently that I have to pass along to good people.  A good man or a good woman does not work for a town or city that is communistic or socialistic or the like.  Rotten cities do have police departments, which have men and women within them.  What does that mean?  When you travel through, for instance, Royal Oak, and you see a police officer or a police vehicle with police officers, you are seeing people who are willing to work for a community that supports communism or socialism or Sharia.  Communities that support and follow the ways of communism and socialism and Sharia can have many bad laws, and that forces police officers to support such rotten laws.  That means when you see a police officer in Royal Oak, you are seeing a potential soldier to communism or socialism or Sharia.  And that means the good person is seeing a potential enemy or more likely an enemy, given young police officers are very likely to have spent time in a college or university stuffed with instructors and teachers who are supporters of communism or socialism or Sharia, which is the way of school staffers in this day in age.  When you travel in Royal Oak, Ann Arbor, and such like places, always keep in mind the police officers are not your friends--they are police officers, but they are police officers who have chosen to be in rotten cities.  If you have to pay money to such a place, such as by paying a parking ticket, you are helping to prop up a communistic-type or socialistic-type entity or city or town, and that is against the interests of good people (anti-communists or anti-socialists or anti-enslavists).  And that is something that you will not learn about on television in this day and age.
    [Note: By the way, I regularly hear about politicians noting the thought about getting into political jobs to work for a higher cause than themselves.  Such bullshit that is!  Communists and socialists and Shariaists are not altruistic or do not really think about helping good people, or they would not support communism or socialism or Sharia!]
    [Note: On Friday, April 20, 2018, students of Royal Oak High School were some of the students involved in the communistic-pushed get-rid-of-guns walkout around the state and country, and, by the way, former U.S. Representative Sandor Levin (a hard-line communist) was scheduled to be in Royal Oak for a walk, and students of Troy High School, which is not far from Royal Oak, were involved in a walk out.  "Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America" (a political entity) was involved in pushing students to take part in walkouts.  On April 24, 2018, I went to the website for Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, and I found no names of people operating the organization.  When a political entity does not show who is involved or running it, I think there is something rotten with the entity [Note: The names of people are being hidden].  The website had this text noting what the entity stands for--"Moms Demand Action supports the 2nd Amendment, but we believe common-sense solutions can help decrease the escalating epidemic of gun violence that kills too many of our children and loves ones every day.  Whether the gun violence happens in urban Chicago, suburban Virginia, or rural Texas, we must act now on new and strong gun laws and policies to protect our children.".  That quoted material reminds me of so much other socialistic and communistic crap that I have run across over the years while doing research on entities that seem to be communistic or socialistic, and that idea about we support the 2nd Amendment comes off as hollow.  I had to go to a special page of the website to see the quoted material; I had already found on the main page this text--"Throw Them Out.  An Action Plan to Kick Out Lawmakers Beholden to the Gun Lobby.".  "Beholden to the Gun Lobby"--That is cliché stuff of communistic and socialistic people!]
    [Note: Ferndale, which is close to Royal Oak, is another communistic/socialist based city in Michigan--it is a place with a lot of people who support the Democratic Party and push out the idea that Barack Obama is a good man [which--I know-is bullshit].  Recently, the police chief (who had been in the police department of the city for about four decades), left the job, either by retirement or by being pushed out slightly earlier than it had been announced (because of problems of some type with the person (a male) and the police department it seems).  It seems the department is going to be evaluated for cultural stuff or social stuff--the way of socialists and communists, especially women--and I would not be surprised to see a female police chief in the city soon, pushed along into the job by the communists and the socialists to get more "diversity," especially female socialistic diversity, in the police department.]

    Over the last ten years at least, I have paid very close attention to the U.S. government, and I have learned how rotten most of the people in it are--it is filled with communists and socialists and black racists and the like.  For example, two-thirds of the members of the U.S. Supreme Court are highly rotten people (as I have shown in documents that exist at the website for The Hologlobe Press), and more than four-fifths of the members of the U.S. Congress are rotten (and that includes all the Democrats and Independents and most of the top-ranking Republicans, such as the soon-to-retire Paul Ryan (who is a truly rotten man)).  I have paid attention to events involving the FBI in recent years.  During the days of Barack Hussein Obama as the U.S. president, the FBI became highly corrupt, especially under the watch of James Comey as the director of the entity.  Since Donald Trump became the U.S. president, even more of the rottenness committed by the FBI has shown up, and James Comey (who left the job as the director of the FBI a little while ago) and his associates are still showing their corruptness through their actions to remove Donald Trump from the office of the U.S. presidency.  Keep in mind--James Comey was instrumental is allowing Hillary Clinton to escape prosecution for, for instance, violating the "Espionage Act."  James Comey is a highly rotten and evil man.  On April 17, 2018, a new book by James Comey was issued to the public--A Higher Authority: Truth, Lies & Leadership; before the book was released officially, people had been getting an idea about what was in the book because of the news media.

    It is easy to have corrupt people in high-ranking police-type jobs, given so many Americans vote to put bad people into public offices [Note: Look at the City of Flint, Michigan, which recently had a water crisis, the start of which really came down to the citizens shitting in their own nest--hiring rotten people; even today, the city council is loaded with people with bad records.].  You cannot tell me that police officers will not follow the communistic politicians, having no other line of work lined up, when anti-communists fail to heed to the politicians' rotten laws, such as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and its follow-ups to come, which will allow the police to arrest you for not accepting the idea that the government gets to tell you what health care you get and cannot get and how much you will pay.  Police officers are a special breed--it is said--but they can end up accepting to be soldiers for the communists and socialists in this country.

    On Sunday, April 15, 2018, ABC-TV presented a television special that showed how rotten a police entity can become when it is overseen by communists and socialists and the like (people who exist in the Democratic Party in the United States of America and sometimes exist in the Republican Party in the United States of America).  The program was entitled James Comey: ABC News Excluisve Event, and it had George Stephanopoulos (a Bill and Hillary Clinton--who are communists--supporter) interviewing James Comey, who was the head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (or the FBI) from September 4, 2013 (hired by U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama, a communist) to May 9, 2017 (fired by U.S. President Donald Trump, an anti-communist).  I watched most of the program.  I watched for ten minutes or so (or the first main segment), and over the time, I got pissed off with the rottenness of the program.  I then took a shower and missed about ten minutes or so.  I returned to the program to see what other rottenness I could find.  In the first ten minutes or so were used by ABC News and James Comey to present James Comedy as a good guy, such as by showing a bit of history of James Comey going back to when he was young, which led to his working to be a good man involved in criminal work.  The first main segment worked to give a bit of similarity between the Donald Trump and the head of the Gambino crime family (a mob family), which James Comey had been involved in working to take down through court action.  The program passed along the idea that Hillary Clinton believed James Comedy cost her the presidential election, though a good person (such as me) understands James Comey was instrumental in not putting Hillary Clinton in court for what a good person could see were criminal misdeeds, such as her violations of the federal "Espionage Act."  I note--James Comey saved Hillary Clinton.  The program worked to give the impression that Donald Trump must have done something crooked to win the U.S. presidency, since "polls" (many of which are operated by socialists and communists and supporters of the Democratic Party) had put out information that Donald Trump had no chance of winning the U.S. presidency [Note: Yes, the defective logic put out by the program is that, since the "polls" said that Donald Trump would lose--and the "polls" could not be wrong--there had to be something crooked involved in getting Donald Trump to be the U.S. president  That is the thinking process of idiots and very bad people!].  James Comey talked about useless stuff, such as Donald Trump's hair and how Donald Trump's tie is too long.  One of the big pieces of crap passed along by James Comey is that "truth is not a high valve" in Donald Trump, and the statement was not backed up with facts.  After I took a shower, I got more crap from James Comey, and one of the first big pieces was that, during the election, James Comey had four daughters and a wife who wanted Hillary Clinton to be elected the U.S. president and be the first female U.S. president.  That idea shows the James Comey family is highly rotten.  The idea that the family wanted Hillary Clinton win shows the family is a supporter of communists and criminal-type people!  [Note: When in university in Chicago in 1969, Hillary Clinton wrote a paper (thesis) that showed her like for Saul Alinsky (a communist), who would be known for the book entitled Rules for Radicals.]  Yes, the James Comey family is a highly rotten family!  In the last forty minutes of the program, I got exposed to James Comey working to pass along something--something that is odd or a lie.  James Comey gave the impression that he was a scaredy cat or whimp; for example, James Comey told the story about how he wanted to hide from Donald Trump in a "Blue Room" meeting, standing next to drapes.  I note--James Comey should never have been made the director of the FBI if he was and is a momma's boy or piss-ass little boy--today, male and females FBI agents are taking on killers and criminals, who can work to kill members of the FBI agents, and the good agents deserve the director who has guts.  If I were the FBI director, I would not be cowardly and work to hide from the U.S. president; for example, if the U.S. president were bad, I would take him on face to face and show that he does not scare me.  James Comey put out the idea that Donald Trump is a big liar (overall), because Donald Trump said that the crowds for his inaugural event were bigger than those for Barack Obama's; whether or not Donald Trump was right, I note that the statement by Donald Trump is no measure of the truthfulness of Donald Trump--the statement is such a tiny thing.  James Comey talked about "loyalty" and how Donald Trump asked "loyalty" of him.  A U.S. president can ask for "loyalty."  I note--Who or what was James Comey "loyal" to when James Comey helped Hillary Clinton avoid federal prosecution, such as around the time of the last presidential election?  Was James Comey loyal to the country as a non-communist country?  Was James Comey "loyal" to The U.S. Constitution?  Was James Comey "loyal" to the Democratic Party, before being "loyal" to the country as a non-communist country?  Through the program, James Comey did not really define what he was "loyal" to! I understand James Comey was not working to be "loyal" to something good--communism is bad and supporters of communism are bad people.  Just because Donald Trump was instrumental in firing Michael Flynn, James Comey hinted that the action was "possibly" tied to "obstructing justice."  That is bullshit!  In the program, James Comey noted that he did not tell U.S. President Donald Trump that the so-called "Trump Dossier" (as it is informally known today) was mostly written under the guide of the Hillary Clinton campaign team for her U.S. presidential campaign [Note: Remember, James Comey was a supporter of Hillary Clinton, as was his family, and James Comey did not pass along the idea about who was instrumental in making the document, which has been proven to be filled with lies, such as the "pissing" on the bed incident and with Russian prostitutes].  Currently, Robert Mueller (who was the director of the FBI from September 4, 2001, to September 4, 2013, and succeeded by James Comey) is so-called investigating U.S. President Donald Trump for--it is alleged--having "colluded" with the Russians to affect the last presidential election (November 2016).  "Colluded"--this word has been bandied about since 2016, but it is often said with no ties to anything.  For instance, was Donald Trump involved in a "collusion" event to change votes at voting boxes?  There was no change in votes at voting boxes by the Russians!  That has been proved, and it is impossible for Russian to do so anyway, given votes are counted by teams of Democrats and Republicans all over the country (in communities and states and such).  Exactly what was the "collusion"?  Did Donald Trump work to get advertising out to the public that was anti-Hillary Clinton?  As a U.S. presidential candidate, the candidate is allowed to put out advertising that puts down the opposition.  What was the "collusion"?  By the way, since 2016, many members or the press and many politicians have not identified what the "collusion" is tied to--it is a vague thing (which can be invented into anything by each person of the general public).  James Comey pushed out the idea that, if Donald Trump fires Robert Mueller, then the action should set off "serious alarm bells" and that the action would be "a most serious attack on the rule of law".  I note that the "rule of law" got thrown out by James Comey with respect to the investigation of Hillary Clinton!  Late in the show, James Comey passed along the idea that Donald Trump is "not mentally" defective to be the U.S. president but that Donald Trump is "morally unfit" to be the U.S. president.  Where is the "moral" defect?  History shows that Bill Clinton was highly "morally" defective, as shown by all the women with whom he dealt inappropriately while married to Hillary Clinton.  Also late in the program, ABC-TV aired a promotional announcement for an episode of a Designated Survivor episode, in which actor Michael J. Fox was to be seen, and the promotional announcement pushed out the idea of the president in the story being mentally unfit to be the U.S. president.  After the commercial break was over, the special called James Comey: ABC News Exclusive Event had James Comey passing along the idea that U.S. President Donald Trump "does not reflect the values of this country".  Exactly what are the "values" in James Comey's mind.  I can prove and have proven James Comey supports communists and communism, as does his rotten family, and because of that, James Comey's "values" of life are highly rotten.  In the end, no facts were really put forth by the special to show U.S. Donald Trump was a rotten man or had done anything illegal as a U.S. president or a U.S. presidential candidate.  The special was a hit piece!  The special was high-caliber rottenness!  The special, which was like a collection of interview bits and not like a fluid run of interview, showed the rottenness can get into the head jobs of police agencies, such as the FBI, when communists (or Democrats) have control of the government!  James Comey is the enemy of good people!
    [Note: On April 18, 2018, The View (which is a communistic/socialistic-based show on ABC-TV featuring women) had James Comey as a guest, and James Comey noted that he was no longer a "Republican."  I guess James Comey found the Republican Party was not communistic and socialistic enough for him, so now he can be an "Independent" (which means communist or socialist) or a "Democrat" (which means communist or socialist).]

    Yes, look at the FBI!  It can no longer be trusted.  Since it had corrupt upper management in the recent past, it could yet have more rotten people within it (those hired by the rotten upper management).  And that is that.

    On Sunday, April 15, 2018, before I would see James Comey: ABC News Exclusive Event, I stumbled on the start of program called Let it Rip!, a local production on WJBK-TV, Channel 2.1, Detroit, which began at 6:30 p.m. (and lasted for 30 minutes).  The program was hosted by Huel Perkins (the main news anchor at the station) and Charlie Langton (a staffer at the television station), and there were four guests (who made up a panel of sorts).  The first fifteen minutes of the show focused on U.S. President Donald Trump.  Three persons on the panel were anti-Donald Trump--Richard Convertino, Mike McDaniels, and Karen Dumas.  By the way, Huel Perkins showed his dislike for Donald Trump (which showed he does not act impartially in television programs) by saying, at one point--"Some people get away with anything."  [Note: Huel Perkins was hinting that Donald Trump was, in essence, getting away with murder (I say figuratively).]  One member of the panel was pro-Donald Trump--Jim ("J.J.") Johnson.  Jim Johnson--who has been on Detroit-radio for decades--was identified as a "conservative."  Since the segment about Donald Trump only lasted about fifteen minutes, Jim Johnson did get much time to say views.  The program passed along bullshit for the most part.  Charlie Langton did help focus some of the discussion on the recent FBI raid on the offices of Michael Cohen (Donald Trump's personal lawyer) on April 9, 2018, and he passed along the idea that the raid and the aftermath seemed to bring up the idea disruption of the "attorney-client priviledge" idea and was bad, while others poo-pooed the theme.  [Note: Whether or not the "attorney-client priviledge" thing will stand up in court has yet to be determined, given the corruptness in federal court system in the country.  Alan Dershowitz is a law professor at the Havard Law School, which is a communistic entity, and Alan Dershowitz is a known supporter of the themes of the Harvard Law School.  After the raid took place, Alan Dershowitz did show his displeasure with the raid, saying that the raid was a violation of the attorney-client priviledge" idea and that, when FBI agents saw any material picked up, they violated the Fourth Amendment and the Sixth Amendment of The U.S. Constitution.  Alan Dershowitz is not a supporter of Donald Trump.  Why might Alan Dershowitz take up Donald Trump's side?  I note that Alan Dershowitz might be on Donald Trump's side in relation to the "attorney-client privilege" idea because the "priviledge" idea--if now killed--affects "liberals" (crooks and such) too and will cause problems for everyone.  Within hours of the raid taking place, Alan Dershowitz put out the idea that another federal law should be made--a law to protect the "attorney-client privilege" idea.]  Huel Perkins and the almost all the others on the edition of Let it Rip! passed along crap in relation to Donald Trump!  For the most part, the segment focusing on Donald Trump was hit-piece material.

    On Sunday, April 15, 2018, before I would see Let it Rip! and James Comey: ABC News Exclusive Event, I saw the "Powerhouse Roundtable" segment of This Week with George Stepanopoulos on ABC-TV.  The segment was hosted by George Stephanopoulos, and the panel was made up of socialists and communists--Maggie Haberman (of The New York Times), Meghan McCain (whose father is U.S. Senator John McCain, a hard-line communist, who calls himself a "Republican"), Karen Finney (a close ally of Hillary Clinton's), Matthew Dowd (a mush-head "Republican"), and Chris Christie (a socialistic "Republican").  Karen Finney pushed out the idea that Donald Trump colluded with the Russians, though about what was not said, and Karen Finney did not present facts to show her conclusion, and Chris Christie worked to sell the idea that James Comey was a "good guy" and a "good family man".  And I heard this idea presented--Donald Trump is destroying our county.  It was another bullshit segment on television on April 15, 2018.

    Note: Almost always This Week with George Stephanopoulos has rotten people on the panel for the "Powerhouse Roundable"--that is, almost all support communism and socialism.  For example, on April 22, 2018, there was a panel of rotten people.  The panel had--Stephanie Cutter (a supporter of the Democratic Party), Jonathan Karl (the history of whom proves he is a supporter of the Democratic Party and a staffer at ABC News, which is at least a socialistic entity), Amy Chozick (of The New York Times, which is a communistic-based newspaper), and Alex Castellanos (who was called a "Republican strategist, which means he works for the ruling members of the "Republican Party," which is made up of socialists and communists, such as U.S. Senator John McCain).  The same program had Tom Perez of the Democratic National Committee as a guest, and he is a hard-line communist.  Communists lie regularly.  On the program, Tom Perez passed along this nonsense--"We are fighting to make sure democracy works.".  I note that communists and socialists do not believe in democracy.  That is fact!  Tom Perez also pushed out the idea that he is working to "preserve our democracy" and is "standing up for democracy."  The U.S. Constitution is not compatible with communism and socialism and vice versa, and communists and socialists are anti-U.S. Constitution.  It was a lot of shit from Tom Perez on This Week with George Stepanopoulos on Sunday, April 22, 2018.

    Announcement: I have several new documents on the Internet--at the website for The Hologlobe Press.  One document is entitled "Indigenous Peoples Day"--It is Not Deserved and Should Not Exist.  It can be reached by using this Indigenous link.  Another document is entitled Black-Racist U.S. Representative Frederica Wilson (a Democrat related to Florida) Shits on a Killed U.S. Soldier--Army Sergeant La David Johnson (a Black Man), which can be reached through this Frederica Wilson.  In relation to Frederica Wilson, you should see the video on YouTube entitled "John Kelly's EMOTIONAL White House Press Briefing 10/22/2017", which was posted on October 19, 2017, and it runs 21 minutes.  Yet another document is entitled The United States of America is Not "Healthy" Anymore and Never Will Be Again--Stupid Americans by the Millions and Rotten Politicians Like Having the Federal Government in Charge of Health Care, When It Should Never Be, which can be reached through this Not Healthy link.  Also I put a document that is under construction (at the time this document was published on the Internet) at the website for The Hologlobe Press so that I could show the documents listed in the bibliography (and it has a tie-in with this document), and that document is informally called A Collage of Corrupt, which can be reached through this Collage link.

    In the 1950s and 1960s, CKLW-TV, Channel 9 (which was located in Windsor, Ontario, Canada, and which broadcast signal to the Detroit area) used the umbrella title for movies called Million Dollar Movie.  Also in the 1950s, WXYZ-TV, Channel 7, used Million Dollar Theater.  Other umbrella titles with "Million" in them were used in the past by television stations in the Detroit area.  Over the years, inflation can rise up and screw up things.  Inflation seems to have affected at least one time the umbrella title for movies.  In 1972, CKLW-TV, Channel 9, decided to put some movie showings under Billion Dollar Movie.  For this edition of Looking at the Movies, I do not have any movie tied to "billions" or "millions."  Remember--Looking at the Movies passes along information about movies shown on television in the early days of Detroit television.  The first full-length feature movie, which was longer than B-movie movies were, to be shown on Detroit television was shown in February 1948, and on April 16, 1951, at 10:00 p.m., Channel 7, had a movie for viewers to see.  It was a murder mystery entitled Pilot X.  The movie was a 1936 movie featuring such performers as Lona Andre, John Carroll, and Leon Ames, the latter of whom would appear as a regular in the Mr. Ed television series.  In the movie, airplanes were being shot down, and an investigative team had five suspects.  Hold it!  In a scene in the secret room, the photographs of the suspects were attached to sheet of paper--Notice the difference of the placement of the photographs in two shots of the scene.  The movie can be found on YouTube.  I wish it were possible for you to dress up your computer screen or whatever to look like a television screen for a television set of the late 1940s or early 1950s; then you could get a feel of what the movie might have felt like to a television viewer in the Detroit area on April 16, 1951.  Oh, well.  Enjoy the simple little movie called Pilot X when you can.

    On April 18, 2018, I looked at the video from C-SPAN2 about the "Tax March Rally" in Washington, D.C., of April 17, 2018, which was a rally by Democrats to get the public to push for more taxes for the "rich."  U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders--a hard-line communist, whose had a honeymoon in Moscow--was one of the speakers, and there were other communists and socialists at the event.  One of the other speakers was U.S. Representative Jan Schakowsky (who represents the 9th District of Illinois).  Jan Schakowsky is another hard-line communist, a type of person who is commonplace in the Democratic Party in the United States of America.  Jan Schakowsky passed along a lot of rotten information, and one of the pieces of crap that Jan Schakowsky said was--"...We are the richest country in the world.  Don't let them ever say that there's not enough money to do these things....".  Stop!  The current debt for the country--only the general-operating debt--is over $20,000-billion.  Remember--The debt of a county falls on the citizens.  The "unfunded-libabilities debt" for the country is way over $150,000-billion.  Recently, a tax law was passed by the U.S. government, and it raises the debt by more billions and billions.  Yet, Jan Schakowsky puts out the crap that, in essence, there is no limit on what the government can spend--there is always money.  In fact, Jan Schakowsky spouted at one point in her speech--"...We have the money!...."  I state--"No!".  The rally was to push for more taxes on the so-called "rich."  The good and smart person is well aware, if all the money were taken away from the so-called "rich" in one incident by the federal government, the money would barely put a dent in reducing the federal debt, which--I say again--is something that falls on the citizens of the country.  The rally showed the rottenness in the minds of Democrats.  Incidentally, Jan Schakowsky represents, in essence, Chicago, where the murder rate is super high, if not the highest in the country of big cities right now.

   Announcement for the novice again (reworked in May 2017): To get useful television-delivered news or Internet-delivered news, WorldNetDaily.com, "The Drudge Report," and CNS News (which is on the Internet and which was launched on June 16, 1998), since the entities do not blindly support Barack Obama-type people (communists and Shariaists), as do CNN, MSNBC, NBC-TV, CBS-TV, and ABC-TV (Note: To learn about bad journalism, you might tune in to CNN, MSNBC, NBC-TV, CBS-TV, and ABC-TV from time to time to see how they differ from the better places mentioned).  I note that Fox News Channel is evolving into a rotten channel, becoming like those that I have put down in this paragraph.  If you are unclear of my intentions, I say in different words that you should boycott CNN, MSNBC, NBC-TV, CBS-TV, and ABC-TV and even now much of what is on the Fox News Channel and hope they lose more ratings and advertising revenues, since they are expendable, and it is time for you to find the guts to be mean and heartless and cancel them--since they are hurting you.  [Note: Everyone in the Democratic Party in the country is rotten, and the Republican Party establishment has shown itself to be socialistic and communistic within the last few years, and only a few of the rotten people are U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell, U.S. Senator John McCain, Jeb Bush, and Chris Christie.]

    It is easy to find communists and socialists on television, but a naive person might have a hard time understanding when a communist or socialist is right before them on television, if the person on television comes off as a person (like Barack Obama) who speaks well and acts nice or smart, but some communists and socialists are easy to detect, because they are so scummy, and a good example of that is Coleman Young Jr. of Detroit, who is a state senator in Michigan and is running to be the U.S. congressman for the 13th District of Michigan.  Coleman Young Jr.--the son of Coleman Young, a black communist and black racist--has a television show on WHPR-TV, Channel 33, in Detroit on Sunday evenings, and I have talked about the show and Coleman Young Jr. in the past.  On April 24, 2018, at about 1:10 a.m., I happened to tune in to WHPR-TV, and a repeat showing of an episode of Coleman Young Jr.'s show--The Young Effect--was being shown, and right away, I heard crap from Coleman Young Jr.  Coleman Young Jr. said that, in essence, capitalism has gone from making money from products to making money from other people's labor.  That is shit!  Coleman Young Jr. teaches shit!  Coleman Young Jr.--who looks like a slug and gutter man, even though he might wear a suit--passed along the idea that it would be good to raise taxes on speculators on Wall Street to make college free!  That is more shit from Coleman Young Jr.  Coleman Young Jr. noted that he wants more money for child care.  That is shit, too!  [By the way, is not child care the responsibility of parents.]  Coleman Young Sr. was instrumental in leading to Detroit's going in to bankruptcy a few years ago--Coleman Young Sr. led the way to having more and more communists and socialists, especially blacks, in government jobs in Detroit.  By the way, recently, a former ex-deputy police chief for Detroit--a black woman named Celia Washington--was given prison time for bribery.  Now, Coleman Young Jr. is working to be able spread his crap to the country by getting in the U.S. Congress.  He might make it to the U.S. Congress, given how stupid many people in Detroit area.  The people are just rotten enough to shit in their own nest or nests!  That is what happened in Flint, where there was a water crisis over the last few years--the Flint people voted in highly rotten people.  The people of Flint shit in their own nest!  [Note: Do some research and look at the backgrounds of the people on the city council of Flint today.]  Coleman Young Jr. is another piece of shit on television!

    On April 17, 2018, I was doing some "tracking"--looking for information on old television shows related to Detroit television history [Note: In general, I add information to my files every day).  While I was doing the research, I was listening to The Frank Beckmann Show (hosted by Frank Beckmann and broadcast by WJR-AM, Detroit).  At one point, Frank Beckmann was doing an interview with a man named Claude Taylor, who is associated with an entity called "Mad Dog Pac," one purpose of which is to raise money to put up signs or billboards around the country that will put down the National Rifle Association (or the NRA).  While the interview was going on, I looked up the "Mad Dog Pac," and I found an associated website, and that website was nothing more than something being used to give people a place to donate money to the cause.  The website had no information about who was involved with it.  I could not even find Claude Taylor's name at the place.  While I listened to the interview, I heard nothing but crap from Claude Taylor (another man working to get Democrats elected to offices).  Claude Taylor pushed out the idea that U.S. President Donald Trump is a Russian-financed dictator, and Chuck Taylor pushed out the ideas that Frank Beckmann was playing games with the interview--Frank Beckmann was trying to sidetrack the real issue (though, for example, Frank Beckmann was working to get Chuck Taylor to answer questions and quit changing the subject and quit interrupting when Frank Beckmann was talking).  One super piece of crap that Chuck Taylor was working to sell was that, general speaking, people who like guns are "ammosexuals."  And that shows more of the nature of the Democrat--a rotten person.

    In the past--number of times--I have shown how crappy a book informally entitled From Soupy to Nuts! is.  It was written by Tim Kiska and published in 2005.  In showing up the rottenness of the book, I have shown up the rottenness of Tim Kiska as a writer and researcher.  By the way, the book is about Detroit television of the past.  Tim Kiska has been involved in writing other books, such as A Newscast for the Masses: The History of Detroit Television News, which was published in 2009.  Only recently did I see any part of that 2009 book written by Tim Kiska.  I went looking for obituary information for a woman named Minnie Jo Curtis on the Internet, doing a "Google" search.  I came up with stuff, such as one page from the 2009 book--page 38.  I read the little portion about Minnie Jo Curtis, and I discovered it was defective information.  The page had--"..Before NBC's Pat Weaver created the Tonight Show in the fall of 1954, WWJ-TV filled the 11:30 p.m. time with The Minnie Jo Show, a variety show hosted by Minnie Jo Curtis, a local actress....".  [By the way, "NBC's" should have been "NBC-TV's".]  From May 29, 1950, to August 24, 1951, NBC-TV pushed out Broadway Open House to affiliates on weekday evenings, and the show was the forerunner of, in essence, The Tonight Show, which began to run on NBC-TV on September 27, 1954.  Between August 24, 1951, and September 27, 1954, NBC-TV affiliates (such as WWJ-TV, Detroit) had to put local shows or movies on the air for late-evening viewers.  For WWJ-TV--the NBC-TV affiliate in Detroit--Minnie Jo Curtis did have the time slot for a while, such as on the show entitled Late Date.  Some other shows put on were Ye Old Refrain and A-1 Theater (which was a movie show).  Tim Kiska's information is crappy.  Incidentally, just before The Tonight Show would show up in the fall of 1954--the late summer of 1954--Minnie Jo Curtis was not on a television show in Detroit; she was involved in acting in theater companies in Saginaw, Michigan, and Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.  Between 1947 and 1954, Minnie Jo Curtis was involved with several television shows in Detroit and did some television in New York City for a while.  Then, I looked down the page written by Tim Kiska, and I found even crappier stuff.  The page had this text--"...WXYZ-TV's opening day broadcasting included broadcasts of three sporting events.  WWJ-TV's opened with one sporting event, a fencing match, then aired a hockey game on its second day of broadcasting....".  That is crap from Tim Kiska!  WWJ-TV, Channel 4, went on the air officially on June 3, 1947, and the first sporting event shown was a baseball game involving the Detroit Tigers (a baseball team that still exists) and the New York Yankees (a baseball team that still exists).  Fencing was not the first sports on WWJ-TV.  So, the very first page of A Newscast for the Masses: The History of Detroit Television News that I got exposed to is crap!  I wonder how much other crap the book has?  I have no urge to see any more of the book, given I know Tim Kiska is a bad historian and writer.  [Note: I do not like the title of the book.  "Masses"--this is a word that communists use to identify citizens of a country; the citizens are just the masses.  Yes, Tim Kiska is a supporter of Democrats.]

    On Sunday, April 22, 2018, I noticed the Retro TV network (which is a subchannel network) has made a change.  In the late evening on Sunday, the channel now carries a show called Who Dunit Theater, which was made in 2015.  The program is a weekly movie program, which shows movies featuring such characters as Charlie Chan, Mr. Moto, and Dick Tracy.  On April 22, 2018, the movie that was shown was Dick Tracy Meets Gruesome, and it was a movie that was made in 1947 and that had Boris Karloff as one of the performers.  This movie show has a host, and the host is called "Spurlock Holmes."  Spurlock Holmes is played by Leo Barron Hicks, who, in the first episode that I saw, sat in a big chair and in a set that was quite nice for a low-budget show.  One problem with the episode that I saw was the microphone for Leo Barron Hicks could have been set up better--he sounded a bit off mic.  I joined the show already in progress, and every commercial break had Leo Barron Hicks saying not much more that we return to our movie or we will be right back, and it seemed to me each segment with Leon Barron Hicks lasted only about ten seconds or fifteen seconds, and yet each segment was divided up into two shots, and the switch from shot to shot was like a jump cut because Leon Barron Hicks was not in the same place.  Given the segments were so short, there was no reason to have two shots--one shot would have worked.  Yes, it was only a one-camera show, and a director could have worried about having static scenes with a one-camera show, but the director should have only worried if a segment were to run long [Note: In the very early 1950s, the Dumont network often had static-looking shows, because shows could be one-camera shows, lasting more than five minutes or ten minutes (the money went to engineering and not visuals and production values), and that helped lead to the death of the network].  Leon Barron Hicks as Spurlock Holmes came off a little stiff.  It is too late to make changes to the show since it is out of production.  In the episode that I saw, Leon Barron Hicks made reference to Miss Watson (but she was not seen).  Who Dunit Theater was created by television producer Joel M. Stephens, who has put other television shows, such as movie-showing shows, on television through a company called MorcaMan Productions.  I wonder if some of the other shows of MorcaMan Productions will show up on Retro TV in the future, and some of the shows could be Dark Jungle Theater with Princess Omaka, Six Gun Theater with Kelly Bob Stublefield, FrightMare Theater, and Pale Moonlight Theater with Terrence Von Riesling [Terry Yates played Terrence, and sometimes Cyd Rentenia (a cute and stacked burnette) appeared as Cyd].  I saw a preview clip of Pale Moonlight Theater with Terrence Von Riesling, and the clip had a bad microphone placement for the host.  There are 26 episodes of Who Dunit Theater.  In the Detroit area--the northern Detroit area--Retro TV is on broadcast Channel 14.2.

    Another channel for broadcast television has gone through a change.  On May 8, 2018, I discovered Channel 14.7, has a different network.  Vibrant is gone, and something else with old movies and infomercials is on.  At this moment, I know not the correct name of the channel.  The website for the Channel 14 group (or WHNE-LD) hints that the name of the network is "Classic" or "Classic Movies".  On May 8, 2018, the channel sort of when like this--there was a movie, and then there was a half-hour infomercial, and then there was a movie, and then there was a half-hour infomercial, and then there was a movie....  There were no commercials during the movies, which ran straight through.  If you did not tune into the start of a movie, you might not learn the name of the movie.  On May 8, 2018, some of the movies that were shown were His Girl Friday (a 1940 movie featuring Cary Grant), King Kong vs. Godzilla (a 1962 Japanese movie), Black Magic (a 1944 Charlie Chan movie), and The Cape Town Affair (a 1967 movie featuring Jacqueline Bisset and James Brolin).  The first three movies that I listed in the previous sentence, I find okay and even fun.  I did not pay much attention to The Cape Town Affair, though it may have been okay.  I get the impression the new subchannel network for viewers in the Detroit might make a good alternative viewing sight--something offering more fun that the broadcast networks.

    Remember: The Prisoner with Patrick McGoohan was a television show that was produced across the pond and shown on CBS-TV in the late 1960s, and I urge you to find The Prisoner on DVD, maybe from a library, and watch it, and you should show it--all the episodes--to teenagers, or buy it as a present for teenagers.

    Hold it!  I am not done talking about The Prisoner.  On April 26, 2018, I was on a long-distance ride/drive in Michigan.  I had the radio on, and I was listening to The Mark Levin Show (a nationally syndicated radio show).  I learned China now has an active "Social Credit System" in place.  On the radio show, Mark Levin was talking about the system, based on an article/video piece published by the CBS-TV affiliate in New York City (Tracy, Ben.  "China Assigns Every Citizen A 'Social Credit Score' To Identify Who Is And Isn't Trustworthy." newyork.cbslocal.com, 24 April 2018.).  I heard about cameras being set up everywhere so that the government could see the masses and rate the people of the masses for what they do and do not do, especially what they might do that does not comply with the wishes of the communistic government.  While I heard the story, the series known as The Prisoner came to my mind, especially the cameras hidden in statues to spy on the people in "The Village" and the control room in which people were watching video screens, such as the continually spinning machine with two guys looking at monitors [Peter Swanwick played the "Supervisor" in most of the episodes of the series].  People in China are being given "Social Credit Scores."  A score is based on things the government likes and the government dislikes in behavior, and the purpose is "system" not really to track down or rate real criminals.  I deduced the main purpose of the system is to make people comply with communism and uphold communism.  Communism--like socialism and Sharia--is a political system based on violence and killing and support for deception and misinformation and designed to benefit only a few people (the leaders).  China is truly transforming into an even more rotten type of village with the help of technology.  China like "The Village".

    "The Village" is a type of place that deserves to be shut down.

Stay well!


    P.S.: You are urged to see my document entitled One of "The Rules of Man"--A Rule About Health Care that No Politician May Supersede with Law, which can be reached through this Rule1 link.  I have deduced that all the Democrats and most Republicans support the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 and have no intention of killing it, though it should be killed for violating, for one, "The Rules of Man."  For example, Republicans Jeb Bush and Chris Christie support the rotten law, and that is one reason that I define them as stupid men and not men who are good enough--in this day and age--to be the U.S. President.  I note that the "mandate"--which forces everyone to buy government-approved health-care insurance--violates one of "The Rules of Man," and it is a rule that is attacked in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010.  Anyone who supports the "mandate" is not a good enough person or a smart enough person to be the U.S. president--the mandate is "enslavism," and the "mandate" allows government people--who are often and usually bad people, as history shows--decide what health care a person can get, and that is bad.
