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 hydroxychloroquine could be used.]
    On June 2, 2021, an entity called Breitbart published an article entitled "ANTHONY FAUCI IGNORED EMAIL FROM PHYSICIST CLAIMING HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE COULD HELP BATTLE CORONVIRUS" (which was written by Jacob Bliss).  The article noted that, in March 2020, a man named Erik Nielsen (a physicist) sent information to Dr. Anthony Fauci that suggested ciclesonide (or Alvesco) and hydroxychloroquine seemed to be effective in battling COVID-19.  The article passed along the idea that Dr. Anthony Fauci ignored the information from Erik Nielsen, and the article presented the idea that Dr. Anthony Fauci considered the email from Erik Nielsen to be too long to take time to see.
    On September 6, 2021, and September 7, 2021, at least some people were learning that the U.S. federal government supplied money to entities in China to work on, in essence, COVID-19-related research, such as "gain-of-function" research.  Two of the entities were the Wuhan University Center for Animal Experiment and the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  A good and smart person in the United States of America has to wonder why the hell was U.S. money going to China, especially in relation to something that could be highly dangerous to man?  News reports showed that Dr. Anthony Fauci (who was the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases) lied about the funding process, which involved him, and the funding process was tied to, for example, an entity called the EchoHealth Alliance.  [Curanaj, Lidia.  "Report: Wuhan lab documents show Fauci lied about 'gain of function' research." wabcradio.com, 7 September 2021.; Justice, Tristan.  "New Details Of Fauci Funding Chinese Gain-of-Function Research Vindicate Rand Paul." thefederalist.com, 7 September 2021.; Lerner, Sharon, and Mara Hvistendahl.  "New Details Emerge About Coronavirus Research at Chinese Lab."  theintercept.com, 6 September 2021, 9:06 p.m..]

    When Barack Hussein Obama was the U.S. president, he was out talking all the time, and many of his speeches are talked about in documents at the website for The Hologlobe Press, and that style is unlike Joseph Biden as the U.S. president.  Any time Joseph Biden that does speak, Joseph Biden passes along crap.  On September 6, 2021, for instance, after Hurricane Ida had passed through the country and while Afghanistan was under complete control of the Taliban people (terrorists and followers of Islam), using $85-billion of U.S. military equipment, Joseph Biden worked to push the idea that, in the future, there will be more damage from storms, saying, for example, "...Because the storms are going to get worse and worse and worse....".  That stuff from Joseph Biden is bullshit!  There will be more damage in the future--not because the storms are getting worse and worse and worse--because there are more things to damage every day than there were fifty years ago and one-hundred years ago.  The storms are not getting worse!  Joseph Biden has no proof that storms will get worse and worse and worse.  Joseph Biden's head is full of shit, though the main media will not point that out, and I say that, based on Joseph Biden's appearances in public, such as on television, Joseph Biden is an enemy of the United States of America and good people.  Since August 31, 2021, Joseph Biden has gotten non-Taliban-associated Afghans hurt and even killed in Afghanistan.  But that is the way of a killer, and Joseph Biden is a society killer or, really, a killer!  When you see Joseph Biden on television, you are seeing a killer, and, by the way, all around him are other killers--Democrats (who are socialists and communists and liberals and progressives and like bad people).  And that is the introduction to this edition of Television History and Trivia.

    So now, really evil people control Afghanistan--Taliban-type people--and they are people whose lives are based on violence and killing.  Violence and killing are simply something to do in life for them.  Taliban people are not interested in creating art and music and knowledge and space ships and computers and typewriters, et cetera, as history shows.  Since January 2021, when Joe Biden became the president of the United States of America, Joseph Biden has worked to get the Taliban in charge of Afghanistan, and since then, I have sometimes run across news reports featuring Alan Jones and others of Sky News (Australia) on YouTube.  The videos simply pop up from time to time.  On August 17, 2021, Alan Jones's video entitled "'Incompetent' and 'cognitively impaired' Joe Biden is now 'racing for the exit door'" showed up for me to see on YouTube.  The video was more talk originally given to Australians by Alan Jones about the rottenness of Joe Biden, and it even showed up some of the rottenness of the Australian leaders (so-called leaders).  The video by Alan Jones shows that there are other people in the world who recognize the crap that is coming from many politicians in the world, such as Joe Biden.  Instead of looking at CBS-TV News, ABC-TV News, NBC-TV News, MSNBC, and CNN today, call up some videos featuring Alan Jones and other people of Sky News.

    Here is a look at some bad television.  On Sunday, August 15, 2021, I finally caught episodes of Wellington Paranormal and Dead Pixels, the latter of which I talked about when the first season showed up, and now we have a second season.  Hold it!  A few days previous to August 15, 2021, I saw an article on the Internet that had information about the first showings of Wellington Paranormal and Dead Pixels [Maglio, Tony.  "The CW's 'Dead Pixels' Season Premiere Settles for a 0.0 rating and 189,000 Total Viewers."  thewrap.com, 19 July 2021, 9:17 a.m..].  The first episode of Wellington Paranormal picked up 225,000 viewers (of a country of some 330 million), and the first episode of season two of Dead Pixels picked up 189,000 viewers.  That is terrible for both shows and for The CW!  I wrote some time ago that, for the first season of Dead Pixels, The CW had a bad show, and yet The CW made it come back for season two.  Both shows are dead issues, being non-funny, and both shows are foreign shows (made in London or New Zealand), and I hope The CW is paying almost nothing for them as a license fee, since--what?--only two persons might buy anything the advertisers on the programs are selling.

    Fox TV is running a series called Fantasy Island this 2021-2022 television season, which is a series based on a 1970s series (of ABC-TV) of the same name.  Women are in control of the new version it seems, and some of them are Elizabeth Craft, Sarah Finn, Adria Lang, and Anne Clements.  The main performer in the show is Roselyn Sanchez, and her face--though maybe called pretty by some guys--comes off as mostly angry and unpleasant to me, and I could say that the face has that bitchy look.  Instead of having a little guy as an assistant to the main performer, the new Fantasy Island has a woman, Kiara Barnes.  The new Fantasy Island comes off as just another pusher of females on television, so it comes off as phoney (not that the original series did not come off as fantasy, being a fantasy).  The original Fantasy Island had a nice tone and a happy tone often.  For light-hearted fun, see the original series (though it has a dated production feel).

    Since I published the previous edition of Television History and Trivia, professional football has shown up again, and during the pre-season, television viewers in the Detroit area (at least) got exposed to crap during some football games.  In Detroit area, the local sports channel is Bally Sports Detroit (which used to be Fox Spots Detroit), and that entity broadcast three pre-season football games of the Detroit Lions.  One game was shown on August 27, 2021, such as on WJBK-TV, Channel 2.1, and I watched the game.  By the way, I am a fan to no team or no person (in anything), and I have no heroes or mentors.  During the game, Bally Sports Detroit aired a promotional spot featuring Greg Kelser, a former professional basketball player.  The promotional spot was more socialistic black crap.  Greg Kelser talked about racism, such as about "how far we have not come."  Since Greg Kelser wants to be treated equally, I say that Greg Kelser is a shit-head man, passing on and teaching socialistic black crap about inclusion and diversity, which are themes designed to put down whites.  Greg Kelser is a black racist with a socialistic base!  That promotional announcement, which had a least one super-big lie and was deceptive, was aired a bunch of times--more than four times--within the game.  Such garage it was each time!  Two days later--on August 29, 2021--ABC-TV aired a pre-season professional football game under the umbrella title called Sunday Night Football, and Al Michaels pushed out a socialistic theme in a promotional announcement, and the main theme was--"...It takes all of us to advance social justice....".  "Social justice"--that term is crap and is related to putting down whites and is designed to give blacks free stuff and preferential treatment, even if what is given is not deserved or not earned.   So football is back and crap is till being pushed along with it at times!

    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, did your favorite television newscast cover the following information, which is national news because it affects the nation adversely?  On July 14, 2021, Governor Kate Brown (a socialist at least and a member of the Democratic Party) of Oregon signed a bill into law that was about reading and writing and math.  The law makes it so that a child--whose history is tied to African-American status, latino status, latinx status, asian status, Pacific Islander status, American Indian status, or other types of colored statuses--are not required to meet writing standards, reading standards, and math standards in order to be graduated.  That means, for one, I would probably not hire any of those students affected, since they will be defective, and that means other people might not hire the so-called graduates, given the so-called graduates might not be able to basic things, such as add up money properly at a cash register.  The law is to cover three years, so there will be three years of preferential treatment, and, officially, the students who will be affected are being made defective by the ways of the Democratic Party, which is a socialistic and communistic and progressive-type entity, or, really, the Democratic Party is killing more people--young people in this case.  [Deese, Kaelan.  "Oregon governor signs bill ending reading and math proficiency requirements for graduation."  news.yahoo.com, 10 August 2021, 11:41 a.m..]

    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).

    Within the past month or so, I was looking at editions of The Detroit Jewish News of the past, and I was reminded of something.  In the 1940s and 1950s, a number of bands did regular series on Detroit television, such as Leonard Stanley's band, and after 1960s, television-related bands in Detroit were about gone from television.  I was reminded that Doug Jacobs and the Red Garter Band appeared for many years on the annual Jerry Lewis Muscular Dystrophy telethons (of Labor Day weekends) of the last half or so of the 1900s, appearing in the local segments that existed within the national presentation.  I have found that the group was on at least 18 telethon programs, and, generally speaking, the musical group known as Doug Jacobs and the Red Garter Band, which was known for playing "Dixieland" music, existed from the late 1960s to at least 2004.  In around 2012, Doug Jacobs died while living in Naples, Florida, at 71 years of age.  And that is a bit of television history in Detroit.

    It is time for Looking at the Movies.  In September 1968, WXON-TV, Channel 62, went on the air in Detroit, and in the late 1960s and early 1970s--before the channel would get moved to Channel 20--the station aired movies regularly, and one of the umbrella titles for movies was Tonight at the Movies.  On Thursday, December 11, 1969, the umbrella title was used for the showing of a 1951 movie, which was in black and white, and the movie was headed by actor Monty Woolley, who played a man who was let go from Acme Printing Services since he reached the age of 65.  Other performers in the movie were Thelma Ritter, who played the daughter-in-law who was married to a character played by Allyn Joslyn, and David Wayne, who would do a lot of television years later, played a character who could be called the potential great-son-in-law and who worked at Acme Printing Services.  Some of the other performers in the movie were Jean Peters, Constance Bennett, and Marilyn Monroe.  Oh, Marilyn Monroe played a blonde gal.  Oh, boy!  Marilyn Monroe was in the movie.  Would not Marilyn Monroe inspire thoughts of romance?  That would not be the reason that the movie was called As Young as You Feel--officially--I think.  In the movie, there is talk about "necking," and, in fact, that happens early in the movie, but you will get no real pointers about "necking" in this movie.  But I do recommend As Young As You Feel as a presentation of this Looking at the Movies segment.

    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 usually bad people, as history shows--decide what health care a person can get, and that is bad.
