    The nature of communists and socialists is to have government be the sole determiner of everything in society, and that is especially true of such people who get into politics or become politicians.  The reasons that such people want government to be the sole determiner of everything are many and show off the evilness of the people; for example, they want to be able to use laws and ultimately police under their control to keep others from getting as much from life, such as riches, as they want, and they want others to not gain as much stature and prominence in society as they want, and they want to be able to use police forces and such to keep them in power so that they do not have to take up other jobs (given they, basically, have no skills), and they want to be able to live morally and ethically freaky lives or be able to do what can be considered by good people to be morally defective and ethically freaky ways, and they also like--if not love--to hurt other people, which can be done well when they are in control of government, such as through courts and security forces.  In this day and age, the communists and socialists are commonplace in the United States of America, and, for instance, they make up everyone in the Democratic Party in the United States of America and most of the news-related people in the main media, such as at such television networks as MSNBC, CNN, ABC-TV, NBC-TV, and CBS-TV.  The communists and socialists will do anything to achieve their goals, since, in essence, it is all that they have in life or want to do in life, and, today, they are using television on a regular basis to help them reach their goals and sell lies and deception and bullshit--communists and socialists are society killers or, simply killers.  In the past month, more evidence to support my claim about socialists and communists being ultimately society killers or killers showed up on television, and I show off some of the evidence in this edition of Television History and Trivia, and I do it with much of the edition, but the edition does have a bit of nice stuff or good stuff.

    Since I published the previous edition of Television History and Trivia, a big event was launched, especially through television, by the communists and socialists in the country to push yet another big lie about U.S. President Donald J. Trump, and it showed off more evilness of the communists and socialists in the media and the U.S. government, and on Thursday, September 26, 2019, a part of the event was a television broadcast of a U.S. House of Representatives committee interrogation of Joseph Maguire (the Acting Director of National Intelligence), and it was a committee hearing headed by U.S. Representative Adam Schiff (a Democrat related to California).  For example, NBC-TV called the broadcast an NBC News Special Report, and CBS-TV called the broadcast a CBS News Special Report, and ABC-TV called the broadcast an ABC News Special Report, but I state that the broadcast was a propaganda event and a manufactured-news event and a phoney television spectacular, and the event was used by the communists and socialists in the country to advance even more their work of turning the country into another communistic and socialistic country.  Right from the start, the hearing provided lies to the American public, and the first lies were pushed out by U.S. Representative Adam Schiff, who talked about a telephone call (of July 25, 2019) between U.S. President Donald Trump and the President of Ukraine (Volodymyr Zelensky) and who pushed out such lies as U.S. President Donald Trump "...betrayed his oath of office..." through the conversation, eight times talked about Joseph Biden, mentioned that Volodymyr Zelensky was not to call him till things were done, performed an act that was like a "classic organized crime shakedown...", and did not protect The U.S. Constitution and the United States of America [Note: During the hearing, Adam Schiff was sort of forced to recant his opening lies, which are too numerous to report here, and Adam Schiff pushed out the idea that he was working to parody U.S. President Donald Trump with the opening remarks, but a good and smart person was well aware Adam Schiff pushed the lies because many Americans would only catch bits and pieces of the hearing--if anything--and Adam Schiff's opening-statement lies would get easily locked in as truth in the minds of most people, given most people would not get information that would wipe out the lies.].  The entire hearing was about a so-called "whistleblower" report and a so-called "whistleblower"--who, as it was reported around the time, was a CIA agent who had been planted in the White House to spy on U.S. Donald Trump--and it was reported that the "whistleblower" was pushing forth truth that U.S. President Donald Trump had sold out his public office to benefit himself.  By the way, around the time of the hearing, it was public knowledge that the so-called "whistleblower" had not actually heard the conversation between Donald Trump and Volodymyr Zelensky, and it was reported that the so-called "whistleblower" had learned about things said by talking with people who--it seemed or maybe--had actually heard the telephone conversation [Note: On Thursday, September 26, 2019, information was provided to the American public through The Mark Levin Show (a national syndicated radio show hosted by famous big-time lawyer Mark R. Levin) that the official text document from the "whistleblower" seemed to be suspicious, and the text document did not have the writing style that was expected from a CIA-type agent and that the form was like that which a lawyer would write, hinting that the "whistleblower" did not write the text document (or complaint) or that people helped the so-called "whistleblower" write the text document).].  Keep in mind--On the morning of Tuesday, September 24, 2019, U.S. President Donald Trump gave an address at the United Nations, and the speech took place in the morning, and the speech was the third speech to the United Nations by Donald Trump as the U.S. president, and in the afternoon of Tuesday, September 24, 2019, U.S. Representative Nancy Pelosi (a Democrat related to California) held a press conference in which she announced the she was formally getting a impeachment investigation going in the U.S. House of Representatives, though smart and good people then knew Democrats in the U.S. Congress were already running an investigation or investigations [Note: Nancy Pelosi's thought about "impeachment" investigation was not real "impeachment" procedure, such as that guided by The United States Constitution.].  The enemies (communists and socialists) of the country were pushing the idea that U.S. President Donald Trump did an impeachable action through the telephone call with President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine on July 25, 2019 (from 9:03 a.m. to 9:33 a.m. Eastern Time), and the impeachable action was supposed to be that U.S. President Donald Trump forced President Volodymyr Zelensky to dig up dirt about Joseph Biden and provide it to U.S. President Donald Trump, and, in essence, U.S. President Donald Trump used his office to coerce Volodymyr Zelensky and was using his office in association with Volodymyr Zelensky to rig the next upcoming presidential election in the United States of America.  And remember--for over two years, the communists and socialists in the country (the "Democrats") had worked to sell the lie that U.S. President Donald Trump had rigged the previous presidential election in the United States of America by getting help from the Russians (or the Russian government), though it was well know by good and smart Americans that no votes had been changed in the election and it was impossible for the Russians to be involved in changing votes, given how the voting process is set up in the United States of America, where the election process for U.S. president is not federally or nationally controlled, as happens in bad countries.  On Wednesday, September 25, 2019, the Donald Trump administration released a transcript (the full transcript) of the telephone call of July 25, 2019, and good and smart people understood that the tone of the conversation showed that Donald Trump did not do any corrupt action, such as an action to force Volodymyr Zelensky to provide dirt of Joseph Biden or not get something (such as money or support from the U.S. government), and the only mention of Joseph Biden by name was in this text (spoken by Donald Trump)--"...There's a lot of talk about Biden's son, that Biden stopped the prosecution [in the Ukraine], and a lot of people want to find out about that, so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great.  Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution, so if you can look into it....".  [It must be remembered that the U.S. President heads the Executive Branch of the federal government, and the U.S. President has the duty to enforce the laws of the U.S. government, and the U.S. president can start investigations into possible violations of U.S. law, and the U.S. president can have investigating done by, for instance, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (or the FBI) or the Central Intelligence Agency (or CIA), which are parts of the Executive Branch of the federal government), and it must be remembered that U.S. President Bill Clinton (a Democrat) was involved in making a treaty between the United States of America and Ukraine in 1998 and 1999, and the treaty is known as the Treaty Between the United States of America and Ukraine on Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters (1999).]  What Donald Trump was referring to in relation to Joseph Biden--especially the prosecutor-firing event in the Ukraine in relation to Hunter Biden (whose father is Joseph Biden)--goes back to when Joseph Biden was the vice president of the United States of America.  The event related to Joseph Biden was a coercion event, as good and smart people understand, and, yes, Joseph Biden did admit in public to getting the prosecutor fired.  Joseph Biden took part in a discussion of the Council of Foreign Relations on January 23, 2018, and Joseph Biden said in public, in relation to making an announcement of a billion in loan guarantees to Ukraine, that the Barack Hussein Obama administration would only pass along the loans if a prosecutor in Ukraine, who was investigating Hunter Biden, was fired, and, during the talk of January 23, 2018, Joseph Biden reported that, in six hours, the Ukraine prosecutor was fired [Note: I wanted to provide Joseph Biden's statement in quoted form, but Joseph Biden sentence structure was highly defective and he spoke so rottenly and sloppily that I saw that I could not write out a clean and clear copy in text form here--You can look it up.].  The Democrats in the United States of America, especially members of the media and the U.S. Congress, continually pushed out the idea in the week of Tuesday, September 24, 2019, that U.S. President Donald Trump worked to push President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine through the telephone call of July 2019 to get dirt on Joseph Biden; for example, many news entities lied about what was in the so-called "whistleblower" complaint, and one example of a lie is how the Detroit Free Press opened a story entitled "Washington plunges into Trump probe" [Mascaro, Lisa, and Mary Clare Jalonick and Julie Pace.  "Washington plunges into Trump probe."  Detroit Free Press, 26 September 2019, pp. 1A and 7A.)--"...President Donald Trump repeatedly pushed Ukraine's president to 'look into' Democratic rival Joe Biden, according to a rough transcript of a summer phone call that is now at the center of Democrats' impeachment probe into Trump...." [Note: I report that "repeatedly" is one lie, and I report that "rough transcript" is yet another lie; the text document of the telephone call did not show any repeated push, and the document was a five-page document and no rough transcript.].  President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine was at a mini-press conference with U.S. President Donald Trump on September 25, 2019, and Volodymyr Zelensky reported in highly broken English (which is not his native language)--"...We had, ah, I think good, da, phone call.  It was normal.  We spoke about many things....Nobody pushed it, pushed me....".  Even though the "whistleblower" had not actually heard the telephone call between Donald Trump and Volodymyr Zelensky and even though the transcript of the telephone call between Donald Trump and Volodymyr Zelensky showed nothing bad and even though Volodymyr Zelensky said he was not pressured by Donald Trump to do anything, television networks in the United States of America broadcast the hearing headed by Adam Schiff on September 26, 2019, which pre-empted regular programming, and it was crap.

    On the weekend of Saturday, September 28, 2019/Sunday, September 29, 2019, the press worked hard it seems to make U.S. Representative Adam Schiff look good and proper in relation to the so-called "whistleblower" hearing, especially the opening statement by Adam Schiff that was supposedly nothing more than parody.  For instance, George Stephanopoulos is the host on This Week with George Stephanopoulos on ABC-TV on Sunday mornings, and George Stephanopoulos had Adam Schiff as one of the guests for the show of Sunday, September 29, 2019, following an interview with Rudy Giuliani (a Republican and a supporter of Donald Trump).  The result of the interview between George Stephanopoulos and Adam Schiff showed off how both were in league to push such ideas as good and truthful that Donald Trump highly urged the president of Ukraine to dig up a lot of dirt and make up a lot of dirt on Joe Biden and Donald Trump had used the full weight of his office to coerce the president of Ukraine and that Donald Trump believes he can coerce foreign leaders, which is all nonsense and bullshit.  In addition, the statement about Donald Trump "believing" he can coerce foreign leaders was Adam Schiff's putting words in Donald Trump's mouth or mind, given Adam Schiff had no proof to back up his statement--it was more lying from Adam Schiff on television.

    And did your favorite television newscast or newscaster make this information clear in your mind?  On Wednesday, October 2, 2019, Adam Schiff was once more making public statements that showed off his evilness, especially on television, and he did it during a press conference with Nancy Pelosi, the leader on the U.S. House of Representatives and a Democrat.  One collection of words spoken by Adam Schiff was--"...We are deeply concerned about, ah, Secretary Pompeo's effort now to, ah, potentially interfere with witnesses who, whose testimony is needed before our committee, many of whom are mentioned in the whistleblower complaint.  Uhm, and we want to make it abundantly clear that any effort by the Secretary, by the President, or anyone else to interfere with the Congress's ability to call before it relevant witnesses will be considered as evidence of obstruction of the lawful functions of Congress.  And more than that will allow a, an adverse inference to be drawn as to the underlying facts.  Ah, that is they are going to prevent witnesses from coming forward to testify on the allegations in the whistleblower compaint, ah, that will create an adverse, ah, inference that, ah, that those allegations are correct....".  Look at the quoted material carefully.  Adam Schiff is putting forth the idea that facts mean nothing--He will conclude guilt without facts, and I state that that is the way of a communistic or socialist mind, and it is something that can be expected from communistic-based or socialistic-based investigations.  In addition, I say that, if Donald Trump uses the legal methods to protect the office of the presidency, such as through court action, Adam Schiff will assume and proclaim guilt.  A smart and good person understands the way of Adam Schiff is not the way of the rules of justice in the United States of America, where a person has to be proven guilty with facts and proofs.  Adam Schiff also pushed out this set of words during the press conference--"...To say that we are concerned that the White House will attempt to stonewall our investigation, much as they have stonewalled other committees in the past, ah, it's why I say the White House needs to understand that any action like that, ah, that forces us to litigate or have to consider litigation, ah, will be considered futhur evidence of obstruction of justice....".  A U.S. president is allowed by law to take on the U.S. Congress on the court system--it has happened countless times over the history of the country.  Notice how Adam Schiff pushed the idea that any fighting back [even if the Congress is pushing rottenness or a rotten invetigation tactic] by the U.S. president, particularly U.S. President Donald Trump, will be considered evidence of guilt, and that is rotten on the part of Adam Schiff.  Once again, Adam Schiff used television to push crap and evil ways.  [Note: "Executive privilege" is a feature of the U.S. presidency, and it can be used to keep talk between a U.S. president and foreign leaders secret, and it helps block some things from being made public and made known to the members of the U.S.Congress, and a U.S. president can claim executive privilege in relation to something--legally.]

    I have to make a clear editorial comment here.  The actions of Adam Schiff and his associates--the members of the Democratic Party at least--show why a country and why this country should have limited government and limits on politicians.  It is commonplace for bad people to get into government jobs, even in the United States of America.  Why would any smart and good person want a Democrat to determine anything, such as health-care rules, for the person?   Democrats are society killers and more.

    Incidentally, I have to report that I am aware of the January 2018 telephone call between U.S. Representative Adam Schiff and two Russians comedians (Vladmir Kyzetsov and Alexi Stolyarov).  It was a telephone call started up by the two comedians, whose goal was to "punk" Adam Schiff.  The two comedians made it seem that they were Russians officials and had nude photographs of Donald Trump, which had been taken during a Russian trip by Donald Trump.  Adam Schiff was so serious during the telephone call, thinking he was on the way to getting material that would damage Donald Trump.  If you are not aware of the telephone call, you should look it up on the Internet (the telephone call is available in audio form).

    By the way, on September 25, 2019, good and smart persons in the United States of America were well aware of an event in which Democrats used their public offices to coerce Yuriy Lutsenko (the Prosecutor General of Ukraine) through a letter of May 4, 2018, and the Democrats were in the U.S. Senate and were Robert Menendez (related to New Jersey), Patrick Leahy (related to Vermont), and Richard J. Durbin (related to Illinois), and the letter opened with "We are writing to express great concern about reports that your office has taken steps to impede cooperation with the investigation of the United States Counsel Robert Mueller....", and the letter had--"...We respectfully request that you reply to this letter answering the following questions:  1. Has your office taken any steps to restrict cooperation with the investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller?  If so, why?  2. Did any individual from the Trump Administration, or anyone acting on its behalf, encourage Ukrainian government or law enforcement officials not to cooperate with the investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller?  3.  Was the Mueller probe raised in any way during discussions between your government and U.S. officials, including around the meeting of Presidents Trump and Poroshenko in New York in 2017?...."  On May 4, 2018, good and smart Americans were already well aware the Trump-Russian-collusion investigation was all fake.

    The broadcast of the hearing of September 25, 2019, was terrible television, when the purpose and substance of it is analyzed, but it was not the biggest piece of shit television that people in the United States of America were given between August 10, 2019, and September 25, 2019.  On September 12, 2019, another debate among Democrats hoping to become the next president of the United States of America was broadcast, and it featured ten highly rotten persons, and they were Andrew Yang, Julian Castro, Pete Buttigieg, Beto O'Rourke, Amy Klobuchar, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Joseph Biden, Cory Booker, and Kamala Harris.  It was several hours of putting down the United States of America and The United States Constitution and promoting rotten political ideas, such as only government should run health care (called Medicare for All) in the country.  [Note: When a country is set up so that only the federal government controls the health-care system of the country, the country is rotten, rotten, rotten, since citizens are unable to bypass rotten care from the government by going to other sources, and I note that only evil people push and support a government-run health care system, as does Bernie Sanders.].  The Democrats of the debate were clearly communists and socialists, and the event resulted in a lot of idiotic comments and evil comments.  One of the worst pieces of speech during the debate came from Beto O'Rourke, who said--"...On August Third, in El Paso, Texas, two things became crystal clear for me, and I think produced a turning point for this country.  The first is just how dangerous Donald Trump is--the cost and the consequence of his presidency.  A racism and violence that had long been a part of America was welcomed out into the open and directed to my hometown of El Paso, Texas, where 22 people were killed, dozens more grievously injured by a man carrying a weapon who should never have been able to buy in the first place--inspired to kill by our president....".  I say, if Donald Trump were not the U.S. president, he could sue Beto O'Rourke for everything that Beto O'Rourke holds dear (money), since Beto O'Rourke's statement is that which would mostly likely lead to his losing a libel suit in a good courtroom.  By the way, communism-supporter George Stephanopoulos (of ABC News) was asking questions during the debate.  The broadcast, which was on ABC-TV, showed more to good Americans--non-socialists and non-communists--the deadly nature of many people in the country, such as Democrats, especially Democrats who are working to be the next U.S. president.

    Hey, did your favorite television newscast, such as that headed by Devin "Cuba Lover" Scillian (of WDIV-TV, Detroit), show you more evidence that U.S. Representative Rashida Tlaib (a Democrat of Michigan) is a gutter women or a piece of shit, besides being an anti-Semite (as Mark R. Levin reports on a regular basis on his nationally syndicated radio show)?  Now, Rashida Tlaib is using T-shirts to raise money for her political campaign, and on the T-shirt is "IMPEACH THE MF", and the message refers to impeaching the mother fucker (U.S. President Donald Trump).  There was a time some few decades ago when such language as "mother fucker" would never appear or be implied on poltical-campaign stuff issued by either a Republican or a Democrat running for public office--there was some line that was considered something not to cross.  Today, the Democrats are socialists and communists or Shariaists, who are highly rotten people, and they have no limits on the depths to which they will go to sell their crap.

    And did your favorite television newcast provide you with this information about the nature of communism in New York City?  On September 25, 2019, New York City put out the order that it is, basically, unlawful or illegal to call a person an "illegal" or an "illegal alien."  Supposedly, there is a feature in the rule that notes that a person has to use the terms with the "intent to deman, humiliate or harass a person" in New York City.  A good and smart person knows that proving "intent to" is vague and could be hard to prove.  Or could it?  The city could say, for instance, it feels--with any case--the "intent" was there.  A person convicted could face a fine up to $250,000.  Notice the rottenness of New York City, a communistic city.  Only an idiot or an evil person would, for example, visit New York City and spend money there.  New York City has gone to crap!  By the way, New York City is involved in censorship and in putting down free speech, and New York City has no power to restrict the use of such words.  [Aviles, Gwen.  "New York City bans use of 'illegals' and "illegal alien."  NBCnews.com, 3 October 2019, 5:43 p.m. EDT.]

   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, Jeb Bush, and Chris Christie.]

    So the new prime-time television season is underway on the broadcast networks.  It has been a lot of crap, or most of the shows broadcast are crappy.  On Tuesday, September 24, 2019, Empire showed up for a new season on Fox TV, and the show, which is been about gutter blacks mostly, has a character called Cookie (an ugly looking women, who is played by Taraji P. Henson), and Cookie said in the first episode--"Please tell me they put his lying ass in prison.".  The comment was about U.S. President Donald Trump.  The episode of Empire was directed by Sanaa Hamri, a Moroccan-American woman.  During the first week of the new television-broadcast season, a lot of the scripted filmed first episodes of series were directed by women, and some of those shows were Bob Hearts Abishola, which was directed by Beth McCarthy-Miller, Bull, which was directed by Bethany Rooney, 9-1-1, which was directed by Jennifer Lynch, Bluff City Law, which was directed by Jessica Yu, The Conners, which was directed by Gail Mancuso, Bless This Mess, which was directed by Lake Bell, Modern Family, which was directed by Gail Mancuso, and Single Parents, which was directed by Erin O'Malley.  I state again--The more that women have come to control nationally distributed television programs (covering all day parts), the worse television has become.  The television schedules of the broadcast networks are loaded with shows that focus on blacks' crap about whites or blacks-whites racism crap or work to have race-based stories or are set up to have phoney blacks-whites situations, and many shows put down the country and show support for socialism and communism; for example, former U.S. President Ronald Reagan was put down in Mixed-ish, where the white lead guy (played Mark-Paul Gosselaar) and the black lead gal (played by Tika Sumpter, who is pretty and cute) have no real sexual chemistry together.  By the way, the first episode of The Masked Singer looked like gay night.  Many shows use women as leads, and the women come off a bullshit feminists.  Cobie Smulders of Stumptown comes off as another phoney female tough-person, and also Cobie Smulders's character comes of as a low-life woman.  The female lead of Emergence (played by Allison Tolman) comes off and looks like yet another feminist/socialist--her whole style wreaks of it.  The lead character of Batwoman comes off as a "butch" feminist, and the character is not pretty to real guys, and she is a lesbian, and there was lesbian kissing in the first episode.  The casting of performers has reached a peak of idiotic diversity, where it is commonplace for show to have a white, a black, an asian, a latino, et cetera, to cover all the ethnic types.  This season, Timothy Hutton is on prime-time television in a series entitled Almost Family, and the series is about how, for example, some gals are related because of how their mothers were impregnated with sperm from the same man, and the lead gals cover a blonde, a redhead, and a brunette (who is a black gal), and it is phoney diversity and it looks phoney.  So far, I have no new series to recommend to you.  I have to note that many of the bad shows will get to stay on the air, because there are enough bad people (such as freaks and deviants and black racists and gutter blacks) in the country to tune into the bad shows, given there are so many channels and such today, unlike in the 1950s, and shows need not get as high ratings as they might have to to stay on the air if there were fewer networks and more good people left with only a few channels, as was the case in the 1950s, or I can say that the networks are getting less shares and ratings than they did decades ago, but there are enough socialists and communists and the like watching the networks as a base audience--to whom the networks are aiming programming--to keep the socialistic and communistic shows on the air, since, in the end, the broadcast networks are giving the socialists and communists what they like to see, which is crap, and so networks can still get businesses to be sponsors.

    Announcement: Recently, I have added some new documents to the collection of my documents at the website for The Hologlobe Press.  One of the documents is entitled A Document that Dispels Myths and Nonsense of Science-Fiction Books, Movies, and Television Shows (A Logic Puzzle), which can be reached through this Myths link.  Another document is And So You Think You're Going to the Moon, Mars, or the Stars..., which can be reached by using this Moon link.  And yet another of the documents is entitled And the Stupid Women Shall Lead--and Lead Ever Good Individual into Shit, Driven on by Communism, Feminism, and Defective Female Beliefs and Little-Girl Thinking, which can be reached through this Stupid Women link.

    On Sunday, September 22, 2019, I was watching MeTV while in the Detroit area, and it was around 9:13 a.m., and I was exposed to an advertisement for the Broadcasters Foundation of America.  At that time of the day, children's programming was airing.  Although the history of the Broadcasters Foundation of America goes back at least 65 years, I was on that day unaware of the entity.  I did research on the entity after seeing the commercial, and I found this mission statement for the entity--"The mission of he Broadcasters Foundation of America is to improve the quality of life and maintain the personal dignity of men and women in the television broadcast profession who find themselves in acute financial need due to a critical illness, accident, advanced age or other serious misfortune.".  I found it unseemly that the entity had a commercial on the air during children's programming, and when I saw the commercial, I thought about how the television broadcast media is so filled to socialists and communists and how the entity wants the American public to push money to it to save television broadcasters.  A person has to wonder and ask--Who qualifies for help?  A person's giving to Shriners Hospitals for Children or St. Jude Children's Hospital is okay to me, but giving to the Broadcasters Foundation of America seems crappy.  Given how the television industry is mostly made up of crappy people, especially in news departments, today, I say--Take care of yourselves, television broadcasters!

    One of the good television broadcasters of years ago was a man named Jack Webb, who was associated with such shows as Dragnet (which had two main versions, the last version of which was in the late 1960s) and Adam-12.  Here I am urging you to see an episode of Dragnet 67, and it is the episode entitled "The Big Prophet", which can be found on YouTube.  The episode was produced and directed by Jack Webb and written by David H. Vowell.  It is about a marijuana guru (played by Liam Sullivan).  The episode was created in a time when California was yet a fairly good state in the United States of America, and the episode sort of was teaching what was leading to the falling apart of California, which is now a state controlled mostly by communists and socialists, who promote marijuana use on a regular basis as a good, though history of the last one-hundred years or so shows it is a screwed-up idea.  In essence, "The Big Prophet" (the character) is just another society killer, which is the nature of communists and socialists.

    My pushing your seeing "The Big Prophet" is not a part of the regular feature of Television History and Trivia known as Looking at the Movies, which I have been using for some time to show off movies that were aired locally in Detroit in the early days of Detroit television history, which began in commercial form in June 1947.  On May 27, 1952, Channel 7 (WXYZ-TV) aired a 1931 movie at 11:15 p.m., and the movie is featured in this edition of Looking at the Movies.  The movie is a "B-picture" or "B-movie," which means it was a low-budget production, but it is a harmless movie, being a movie from which you will not feel icky or slimmy after seeing it.  The movie is entitled Dragnet Patrol.  The story is about rum-runners, such as Larry White (who is played by Glynn Tryon).  Vernon Dent plays "Cookie" (who is not related to the "Cookie" mentioned earlier in this edition of Television History and Trivia) [Note: Vernon Dent played in a number of film shorts with The Three Stooges.].  George Hayes, who in movie history is known for playing in cowboy movies and being informally called "Gabby Hayes," plays the "Detective" in the 1931 movie.  Yet another performer in Dragnet Patrol is Vera Reynolds, playing Millie.  For fun, try to see the movie late a night when it is dark outside.

    On September 30, 2019, Detroit-area television viewers noticed that the Decades network is back on the air in the Detroit area, and it is on Channel 2.5 (broadcast).

    And I have one more fun thing.  Recently, I learned there was a "Funko Mini" of Big Boy (of Bob's restaurant fame and others), and then I discovered that there were a whole bunch of minis (characters) from Funko, such as those tied to Saturday morning cartoons of the 1960s or so and those tied to Warner Bros. cartoons of decades ago.  I found many of the minis were cute and nice, and, in fact, most were cute and nice.  On YouTube, I found a video about Funko entitled "How Funko Makes Its Pop! Figures | Forbes".  For fun, go and see the video, which is short.  And look up Funko's mystery minis on the Internet.

    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.

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.
