Special Important Announcement

    On December 9, 2020, a video entitled "It's a HORRIBLE time in history to be Honest and Ethical.  People love the LIE" was posted on YouTube.  The video features testimony from Dr. Pierre Kory, who is, for example, related to an entity called the "Frontline COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance" and to the St. Luke's Aurora Medical Center.  In the video, Dr. Pierre Kory talks about an anti-viral called "ivermectin", which has been around for some time, and talks about using it to defeat COVID-19.  The talk was given at a hearing (entitled "Early Outpatient Treatment: An Essential Part of the EN SVVID-19 Solution") at the U.S. Senate (related to the Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs) on December 8, 2020.  See the video!
    [Note: In the spring of 2020, especially around April 2020, the Democrats and people in parts of the federal government (such as the FDA), were putting down using hydroxychloroquine, saying it was dangerous, but some doctors did use it, such as on a state representative of Michigan and her husband, who thanked U.S. President Donald J. Trump for making hydroxychloroquine more known.  Keep in mind--then--in the spring, hydroxychloroquine was a decades-old drug and was not dangerous (when used properly).  By the way, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer (a Democrat and a socialist and a feminist (a.k.a. for all of them "enslavist")) was putting down and not promoting the drug while pushing the idea that blacks were dying of COVID-19 because the medical community was racist against blacks, and some Democrats around the country were pushing the idea that U.S. President Donald J. Trump was promoting the drug because he had stock in the company making the drug.  "Ivermectin" is a known drug, and medical people know how to use it and handle it.  Hold it!  On December 14, 2020, the first person in the United States of America, who was in Florida, received a vaccine shot for COVID-19; companies that had developed the drug delayed telling the world that their work was done till right after the election of November 3, 2020.  In December 2020, once it looked as if Donald J. Trump was no longer going to be the U.S. president, the people of the American Medical Association were saying that hydroxycholoroquine could be used.]

    Television can been an eye to the world, and it can even show sickness in the eyes of those on television.  For Detroiters, television officially got started on a commercial basis in June 1947, though the first television broadcast was done in October 1946 from the Convention Center that existed along Woodward Avenue till about 1953, when it as replaced for a number of years by a Vernor's factory.  In this day and age, it is easy to see sickness in the minds of people on television, especially network news shows, where disinformation or lack of information or propaganda are commonplace.  I have said for years that, over time, what a person is does show up on the face, and, today, it is hard to find pleasantness on the faces of people who show up on television, especially women and blacks, who often come off anger and unhappy.  Although what a person is can show up in time on the face, many Americans seem to lack the skill to detect the real nature of what they see in faces, and that is even though they have been exposed to it clearly through countless television shows and broadcasts, going back to at least 1947.  Did you see sickness in the eyes of a high-profile man on television on March 25, 2021?

    For about eight years, I documented in two main documents the many rotten things and lies that Barack Hussein Obama (as the U.S. president)--the perpetual liar and hard-line socialist and communist--said to the world in public speeches and public events, and the two main documents can be reached through these two links--Quotes1 and Quotes2.  Barack Hussein Obama was blabbing nonsense all the time, nearly on a daily basis.  At the time, Joseph Biden was the vice president of the United States of America.  On January 20, 2021, Joseph Biden became the U.S. president, and since January 20, 2021, Joseph Biden has done few speeches, especially long speeches before the American public, which has been no surprise smart and honorable persons, who have known something has been mentally off with Joseph Biden for some time, and that is not just because he is a crook (with a crooked family) and is a supporter of communism and socialism and China and other rotten things.  Finally, on March 25, 2021, Joseph Biden as the U.S. president gave a long press conference or Joseph Biden attempted to get through a long press conference and not show something is definitely wrong medically with his mind.  The event, which could be seen on television and heard on radio at least, ran nearly one hour and a half.  During the event, Joseph Biden pushed forth nonsense, such as blaming U.S. President Donald Trump for the border crisis that was taking place between the United States of America and Mexico, where countless illegal aliens were storming the border, hoping to get in to the United States of America and get freebies; the problem had been caused by Joseph Biden, who, for example, had made the border open to hordes of people beginning on January 20, 2021, through his actions, such as executive orders.  Joseph Biden even pushed out the idea that U.S. President Donald Trump was instrumental in letting "kids starve at the border" during Donald Trump's time as the U.S. president.  Joseph Biden reported that the federal budget, as it is now, helps the rich.  A smart and good person knows that that statement was high idiocy from Joseph Biden, since the federal government does not have a budget that gives money--as if the federal government owns everything--to the rich, such as to the rich only.  The idea that the federal government owes everything in the country is communistic bullshit!  Joseph Biden talked about energy, pushing forth the idea that, if the oil workers were stopped from doing regular oil work, they could still earn money by capping wells and be as well off.  Of course, a good and smart person understood Joseph Biden's theme about oil was idiocy, in that soon there would be no oil wells to cap, and all the workers would be out of work, and the country would not be producing oil, and the country would be dependent on other countries for oil.  Joseph Biden pushed out the crap that, because Republicans are in control of some state governments, they are putting together voting laws that are designed to take away voting rights from blacks, and Joseph Biden's theme was said during a time when the Democrats in the U.S. Congress were working on legislation to make the voting system in the United States of America highly corrupt, such as by making it so that states could not clean up voter rolls and could not ask for official IDs from voters, and it was legislation that would be in violation of The United States Constitution, which gives no power to the federal government for making voting rules and leaves the power of making voting rules in the hands of the states, which, actually, created the federal government at the founding of the country.  In relation to Republicans making voting laws, Joseph Biden stated that--"It's sick!".  Sickness--that is what a person could deduce by watching Joseph Biden on television, and it is sickness in the mind of Joseph Biden.  Many times during the event, Joseph Biden had sloppy speech, and there were many misspeaks, such as when he said---"...when I came to the United States Senate a hundred-twenty years ago...." (which was said in relation to the topic of the filibuster and the U.S. Senate).  By the way, Joseph Biden tried to sell the idea that he was a "nice guy," something that dictators of history have tried to do while hurting people and hurting their countries.  Joseph Biden had a number of stall moments, where the train of thought died, and one example is--"I have never been particularly poor at calculating how to get things done in the United States Senate.  So, the best way to get something done--if you, if you holds near and dear to you that you, ah, ah, like to be able to, well, anyway....".  The media persons in front of Joseph Biden saw how Joseph Biden had to use cue cards or note cards at times, and the questions from the media were fluff questions and leading questions and even non-questions, such as when a woman (as a so-called reporter) pushed out the idea that it looks as if the Republicans could win the U.S. House of Representatives in the next election, so how was Joseph Biden going to stop them, hinting that he should make some law to block them and should push for the passage of what would be the unconstitutional voting bill being worked on, which she worked to called a "voting rights" bill, though it would not be.  The television event was revealing, proving the American public had elected not only a crooked person to the office of the U.S. president but also elected a failing mind, which suggested the country was not really in control of Joseph Biden and which hinted that the country was being run by others, such as close aides, who are communists and even in league with, for example, the rulers of China.  The event can be found in video form on the Internet, such as on YouTube, and I urge you to see it, and it might be the only long-form event that Joseph Biden might ever do as the U.S. president, since it seems very likely that, if another such event were held, Joseph Biden would show off even more moments of an ever-increasing failing mind.

    Hold it!  Before the event of March 25, 2021, took place, I had had in mind that Joseph Biden reminds me of the dummy (the ventriloquist dummy) known as "Walter" (who belongs to the ventriloquist known as Jeff Dunham, who seems to support the Democratic Party), and then after the press conference, I stumbled across a video on YouTube by Jeff Dunham.  The video is entitled "And now, a message from the President of the United States, Ben Hiden" (which runs thirty seconds and which has a posted date of March 19, 2021).  In the video, Walter is dressed up to look like Joseph Biden, and the theme is about Joseph Biden's falling three times while heading in to a jet.  [Note: A lot of people, especially black people and piss-ass mommas' boys, such as in Detroit, Ferndale, Royal Oak, and Ann Arbor of Michigan, are too fucking stupid to see that Joseph Biden is a piece of shit of a man!]

   Announcement for the novice again (reworked in March 2019): To get useful television-delivered news or Internet-delivered news, try Breitbart News Network (the history of which goes back to 2007), WorldNetDaily.com, Newsmax TV (which was started up in 2014), CNS News (which is on the Internet and which was launched on June 16, 1998), and One America News Network (a.k.a. OAN), since the entities do not blindly support Barack Obama-type people (communists, socialists, progressives, liberals, 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.  In 2019, "The Drudge Report" was sold, and it should be treated as suspect for now.   [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 tied to the Republican Party are U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell, Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush, and Chris Christie.]

    Hey, let me have fun with T & A, and that is "television" and "advertising."  However, I do have to note here that I like the shape of Ema Hayasaka and Salma Hayek, and each would (if I do not talk about the brain of each) be fun to look at during a dinner-and-a-movie date.  I hope each would show off a lot of skin, especially boobs.  Maybe, it could be a summer day, and when I was out with either, the gal could wear a summer cotton dress with a high hemline and a very low neckline.  Neither would need to wear anything else.  Hold it!  There is a problem!  What would be a good movie to see at a movie theater today?  What would I take Salma Hayek or Ema Hayasaka to?  Maybe, I could see reviews of movies on Sundays on a show called CriticLEE Speaking, which features, for example, Lee Thomas and which is shown on WJBK-TV, Channel 2, in Detroit at 9:30 a.m..  On March 6, 2021, I happened to tune in to the edition to see what movies were going to be reviewed.   I wanted to see what people might see on a "date night" or "movie date night."   Based on what I saw presented, I would have to spend a couple hours looking down either Ema Hayasaka's dress or Salma Hayek's dress while skipping an plan to see a movie.  On March 6, 2021, the movie-review show talked about The Mauritanian, which features lesbian Jodie Foster, and it is a story about prisoners at Guantanamo Bay.  That sounds like a movie to miss.  Raya and the Last Dragon was talked about, and it seems to be a political piece, which is about trust and radical stuff.  Coming to America 2 was called a flat movie.  Chaos Walking is a political piece--a science-fiction story--and it seems to be about a planet with no women till a woman shows up.  Moxie is about girls rights at a school, and that is political crap, as far as I am concerned.  Boogie was pushed out as another political piece with racial stuff, in which the main character is Asian and wants to play basketball, and of the scenes shown, almost all made it look as if the movie was inner-city gang crap (though not necessarily about gang crap).  Boss Level seemed to be another Groundhog Day thing.  A moment or so of time on the review show was spent on The Spongebob Movie: Spongebob on the Run, which is a cartoon thing.  By the way, it is commonplace to see commercials for movies on television in this day and age, and, in recent years, I have seen no commercial showing a movie that looked like something fun or nice--all the movies are loud and violent and dark.  During the movie-review show, the hosts pushed out the idea that, to see such-and-such a movie, the cost was like $20.00 or $30.00.  That is too much money to spend on crap!  The episode of CriticLEE Speaking of March 6, 2021, was hardly my first exposure to the weekly series, so I can say that the movie-review show seems to be rather useless, since it often promotes what I call bad movies.

    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 Every 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.  And here are other documents--A Review of What Television Controlled by Socialists and Communists Worked to Sell as Truth in Relation to the U.S. President Donald J. Trump Impeachment (at Impeachment) and T.H.A.T. Special Edition--The First Helicopter-based Traffic Reporters on Radio for the Detroit area of Michigan (at Helicopter Traffic).

    Around early March 2021, PBS-associated television stations held another main pledge-drive period, and such a television station near you may have aired a 1965 show called It's What's Happening Baby.  On Saturday, March 6, 2021, WTVS-TV, Channel 56.1, aired the program for the first time, airing it at 7:00 p.m..  I looked in.  But I did not pledge any money, since I do not give money to socialistic-type or communistic-type television stations.  The presentation on PBS-associated stations was tied to T.J. Lubinsky, the My Music guy (at least), who was instrumental in getting the program on the air again.  Really, the show proper was hosted by "Murray the K" or (Murray Kaufman), who was a famous disc jockey in in New York City, New York, in and around 1965.  The black-and-white show proper had musical performers doing songs, and the show had such persons or groups as The Drifters, The Righteous Brothers, Herman's Hermits (from England), The Ronettes, The Supremes, Mary Wells, The Four Tops, Dionne Warwick, Bill Cosby, Chuck Jackson, Little Anthony and the Imperials, Johnny Rivers, Patti [LaBelle] and the Bells, and Jan & Dean.  Fred Gwynne showed up in a scene recorded at Malibu Beach in California, and he appeared as Herman Munster (of the television series called The Munsters).  The show was recorded in several cities, one of which was Detroit.  Originally, It's What's Happening Baby was a political show, though a person who sees the show today would not know that.  Basically, the show when seen today is nothing more than a music show, which happens to show off performers doing songs that are yet played today, such as on "oldies" radio shows.  The program was originally a public-relations piece.  CBS-TV aired the program with no real commercials within the program, and CBS-TV provided the 90-minutes of prime-time air time and production facilities for free to the federal government, specifically the federal Office of Economic Opportunity (or the OED), which was only a few months old.  The purpose of the show was to promote some new federal programs as part of U.S. President Lyndon Johnson's "War on Poverty," such as Jobs Corps; the entity was working to get young people who were dropouts or about to be dropouts to get into the workplace and jobs.  During the original showing of the program, only commercials tied to the Office of Economic Opportunity were shown.  Today, the show is a nifty history piece, showing off performers in the heyday of music radio in the country--a time when radio was fun and when there could be fun songs on the radio (happy songs, love songs, goofy songs, et cetera).  Over the week or so (at least) after the program had originally aired on Monday, June 28, 1965, some people expressed disappointed in the show and put down the show, such as for being a little lewd, and some of the complainers were Republicans in the U.S. Congress.  The head of the OED was a man called Sargent Shriver [an arrogant Democrat, whom my father had become exposed to on a airplane trip one day and had found to be a jackass], who had a daughter called Maria Shriver (who would turn out to be a socialistic-based journalist), and in July 1965, Sargent Shriver was pushing the idea that his entity had received some 10,000 letters from Americans that praised the show.  In hindsight, a person can see that the "War on Poverty" failed and has failed, doing nothing but use up money; the "War on Poverty" was supposed to help the poor, especially blacks, and get rid of poverty, but what it did was lead up to the break up of the black family, and, for example, it led to the falling apart of black-controlled cities, such as Detroit and Flint, Michigan, one of which went into bankruptcy.  It's What's Happening Baby is a pleasant enough history piece for people to see today, and I can say that, otherwise, nothing was gained in relation to the original purpose of the show.

    Well, what has been happening with the prime-time season of the broadcast networks lately?  On March 30, 2021, ABC-TV pushed out the first episode of Pooch Perfect.  This one-hour weekly series focuses on dogs and dog owners.  It is a contest.  The first show looked like it was more about gay people than dogs.  The tone was too political.  Pooch Perfect is hosted by Rebel Wilson.  I now jump to another rebel--sort of.   On April 8, 2021, ABC-TV pushed out the first episode of Rebel, which is a political show and a socialistic show that has a female lead, who is another angry activist (who is played by the unpleasant Katey Sagal).  It is said that the show is based on the life of Erin Brockovich.  I care not!  The first episode was more unhappy and bad people on television, and I have no urge to see it week to week and have the characters show up in my living room regularly.  On April 1, 2021, CBS-TV pushed out United States of Al's first episode, and it seems some viewers got angry that a South African actor was playing an Afghan (the lead character), and the performer who is from South African is Adhir Kalyan.  I urge you to avoid the show because the producers simply made the show to sell the idea of having an Afghan on prime-time television, so the show was not made to entertain first.  The Moodys began to run on CBS-TV as a one-hour thing on April 1, 2021, and it is another ugly show.  Yet another Law & Order-type show came on the air on April 1, 2021, and it is Law & Order: Organized Crime, and it is more depressing stuff from Dick Wolf and friends on NBC-TV.  Yet another title from the past showed up on April 7, 2021, and that title is Kung Fu, and it is a series on The CW with Chinese mostly (as main characters), and it is another phony show with a young girl who is supposed to be a strong woman or a fighter.  Kung Fu is loosely based on the 1970s series called Kung Fu, which featured David Carradine as the main performer.

    Hey, have you paid attention to the broadcasts, such as by Court TV, of the trial of the police officer charged with killing George Floyd, another drug creep and thug?  I have avoided it.  One reason for that is the City of Minneapolis, Minnesota, where the maybe killing had taken place, reached an agreement with the George Floyd family that was designed to give the family $27-million.  No court case had been decided yet, and yet the city council pushed out the money.  That is a sign of rottenness in the government of Minneapolis, which should have done nothing till after the trial was concluded.  The action corrupted the entire process of the trial and the public.

    Looking at the Movies is a segment of editions of Television History and Trivia that passes along ideas of some old movies to see, such as through YouTube.  The feature mostly suggests movies shown by Channel 2, Channel 4, and Channel 7 between 1948 and 1953, Channel 9 (which was in Windsor, Ontario, Canada, and came on the air in 1954) from 1954 to about 1959, Channel 50 (which came on the air in 1965) in the late 1960s, and Channel 20 (originally Channel 62), and more.  In this edition of Television History and Trivia, I give you a movie that played on Channel 2 (WJBK-TV) in 1951.  It aired on Tuesday, September 11, 1951, at 11:15 p.m., and on Monday, November 5, 1951, at 11:15 p.m..  For the showing of September 11, 1951, the Detroit Free Press listed it in a highligh-of-movies area as Behind a Locked Door, and for the showing of November 5, 1951, the Detroit Free Press called it in a movie-highlight block Behind Locked Doors.  The correct title of the movie, which was released in 1948, is Behind Locked Doors.  The two main performers are Richard Carlson and Lucille Bremer, and some of the other performers are Douglas Fowley, Ralf Harolde, and Tom Brown Henry.  The movie is available on YouTube.  Basically, the movie opens up with a private investigator (played by Richard Carlson) looking over the work that a painter has done to put "Ross Stewart  Private Investigator" on the main door to Ross Stewart's new office, and while Ross and the painter sort of haggle over $10.00 for doing the job, and "doll" shows up, and soon the viewer learns that the "doll," who is really a reporter, wants Ross to pretend to be mentally defective so that he can go inside a private sanitarium and get proof that a missing fugitive--a Judge Drake--is hiding inside, and the incentive for Ross Stewart's taking up the case of finding the judge is $10,000 (the reward for the judge's capture).  Ross Stewart pretends to be Harry Horton, and the case in on.  The movie, which is in black and white, runs about one hour.  That time is enough time to eat at least one bag of popcorn very late at night while watching the movie.  Yes, this time, Looking at the Movies presents Behind Locked Doors, and it has nothing to do with COVID-19.

    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.
