Special Important Announcement

    I now have a document at the website for The Hologlobe Press entitled A COVID-19 Document that Shows the Rottenness of the CDC, Many in the Medical Community, Many in the Media, and All the Democrats, such as Gretchen Whitmer, Andrew Cuomo, and Joseph Biden, and the document can be reached by using this COVID-19 link.

    Based on what I know about what television stations in the Detroit area have done since June 1947, specifically in relation to programming, I can say that the halls of the television stations must be pretty quiet today, and the atmosphere must be rather stiff at each place.  For example, in the 1940s and 1950s, the places must have had all types of people running around, and there were sales people, sports people, clowns, musicians, artists, news people, film-camera people, engineers, children's-show hosts, movie hosts, visitors, booth announcers, et cetera, and, then, the television stations broadcast live news shows, sports-news shows, baseball games, football games, basketball games, hockey games, bowling shows, movie shows (with hosts), educational shows (such as with people of the University of Michigan), talk shows, roller derby games, horse-racing shows, boxing shows, soap-box-derby shows, auto-racing show, games show, beauty pageants, cooking shows, fashion shows, travel shows, exercise shows, dance shows, talent shows, et cetera.  When I think about it, I see that most of the people in front of the cameras today are rather shallow people--they do not do much and have not done much.  Today, with the low level of activity at the television stations, the air of arrogance must be more pronounced at each place than it was years ago, because it can take more of the center stage of the atmosphere than years ago, and it must be heavily icky when it comes from the socialists and the like.  All that said about behind the scenes today is a guess, and this document focuses only on what shows before public, and what is shown before the public is no guess.

    I have a special section here, and it focuses on Detroit television history (sort of) and national television history.  From December 1956 to May 1967, a popular game show on broadcast television was To Tell the Truth, which was hosted by Bud Collyer.  When the show was dropped from prime-time network television, it was put into syndication, and it ran on a "stripped" basis (a five-days-a-week-run basis), and it ran for another decade or so for viewers in the country, and, by the way, it was hosted for most of the time by Garry Moore (but Joe Garagiola took over as host late in the run, and his son (Steve Garagiola) would work in news on television in the Detroit area for many years).  The network version and the syndicated version of To Tell the Truth were seen on television in the Detroit area.  In each episode, which ran fo 30 minutes, a panel of four persons asked questions of three contestants and then stated which contestant was the real person named at the beginning of a segment--two contestants were impostors who were trying to convince the panel that they were the real person.  The real person of the three contestants was a person who did something spectacular or who made something or whatever.  Recently, I saw--again--an episode of To Tell the Truth though the Buzzr network (a game-show network, existing on Channel 2.3 in Detroit) that had a Detroit-area connection or really a Detroit (Michigan)/Windsor (Ontario, Canada) connection.  Through research, I believe the episode originally aired on November 22, 1974, in syndication, or it was aired in around that date in the country, such as in Detroit.  For the episode of the series, Garry Moore was the host, and the panel of four was made up of Bill Cullen (who was a famous game-show host), Nipsey Russell (well-known for doing rhymes or poems), Anne Meara (who was a part of the Stiller and Meara comedy team and marriage), and Kitty Carlisle (of stage and movies).  By the way, each episode was made up of two parts--or two guessing games.  For the first segment of the show to which I am dealing, the three contestants put forth in front the panel claimed to be Byron MacGregor.  It was stated that Byron MacGregor was now famous for recording a record called Americans, which was based on an editorial that had been written and presented by a famous Canadian newsman called Gordon Sinclair.  The recording had high praise for the United States of America and the people of the United States of America as a rule.  The panel asked questions of the contestants, and the real Byron MacGregor--whom I knew--passed along useful information, such as, up to the time of the taping of the episode, the recording (the record) had made about $240,000, which was being given to the Red Cross.  At the time the episode was seen by people, Byron MacGregor (who was Canadian) was the news director and a news anchor at CKLW-AM, Windsor, Ontario, Canada, and CKLW-AM could be heard in 27 states of the United States of America and in many parts of Canada.  When time came for the panelists to vote, things went nutty.  I say that in jest!  What happened is none of the panelists picked the real Byron MacGregor as the real Byron MacGregor, so the contestants won $500.00 (which was to be divided amongst them).  I should mention that, normally, the group of contestants for a segment of To Tell the Truth would win $50 for every time an impostor got a vote from the panel.  The story about this episode of To Tell the Truth does not end with the three contestants for the first segment.  The second segment was tied to the idea of the U.S. and China sort of restoring communications ties (it seems).  The real contestant of the second segment was a man who had written a book about China, and the man was Emmett Dednon.  So one segment of the episode praised the United States of America, and the second segment sort of promoted China as good, though it was a communist country.  And, today, China is still crap!  By the way, the three contestants of the second segment won $500.00, because all the members of the panel failed to vote for the real guy, and each voted for one of the impostors--the number-three contestant.  For this episode of To Tell the Truth, the announcer was Bill Wendell (and the name was a stage name).  The original To Tell the Truth was a show that was nice and was sort of formal, unlike the recent redo (for ABC-TV) that has had a gutter feel to it, being like much of the game-show material on network television today, and I say that to tell the truth.

  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 the 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.]
    [Note: Here is an example of Chris Christie's rottenness.  On Sunday, February 6, 2022, Chris Christie was a guest on This Week with George Stephanopoulos (of ABC-TV), which had Martha Raddatz as the host, and Christ Christie pushed out crap.  For example, Chris Christie said--"...And let's face it.  Let's call it what it is.  January 6 was a riot that was incited by Donald Trump...an effort to intimidate Mike Pence and the Congress into doing exactly what he said in his own words last week--overturn the election.  And he's trying to do a cleanup on aisle one here...." and "...He actually told the truth by accident.  He wanted the election to be overturned....".  That is bullshit!]

    Football season--the one with the NFL--is back!  Back in early July 2023, I was seeing information that some people were predicting that the Detroit Lions had a good chance of getting to the Super Bowl in February 2024.  For the Detroit-area viewer, the Detroit Lions were first seen in a game broadcast on television on Sunday, October 9, 1948, and it was actually the third game for the team for the 1948 season.  The game was seen on WXYZ-TV as a local live broadcast, and it took place at Briggs Stadium, and the opponent was the Boston Yanks. Officially, the Boston Yanks never made it to the Super Bowl.  I do not expect the Detroit Lions to win the Super Bowl for the 2023 season.  Let me go back in history again.  The first "away" game as a local broadcast that featured the Detroit Lions was broadcast by WXYZ-TV, Channel 7, on Sunday, November 7, 1948, and the Detroit Lions took on the Chicago Cardinals in Chicago.  The Chicago Cardinals never won a Super Bowl.  The Boston Yanks and the Chicago Cardinals (as named) never won a Super Bowl, because the "Super Bowl" did not exist when those teams--under the names--existed.  No games were broadcast on Detroit television live for the 1949 season and the 1950 season, and only four away games were broadcast for the 1951 season, and from 1952 onward, all the games (usually) were seen on television each season (through a local production or a broadcast network production or a cable production).  Today, no games are broadcast live by a local television station, but games are broadcast on WJBK-TV (through the Fox TV network) or on WWJ-TV (through the CBS-TV network) or on WDIV-TV (through the NBC-TV network).

    And the college football season is back, and I caught much of the first game to be broadcast on broadcast network television, which was on Saturday, August 26, 2023, and the broadcast was officially called Cricket MEAC/SWAC Challenge Kick-Off of the ESPN College Football series, and it was an "ESPN on ABC" presentation.  The game featured South Carolina State and Jackson State at Center Park in Atlanta, Georgia.  The play-by-play announcer was Tiffany Greene (a black gal), and color was done by Jay Walker (a black guy), and the side-line reporting work was done by Harry Lyles Jr. (a black guy) and Quint Kessenich (a white guy).  I watched the game from 8:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m., when I dropped out, disappointed in the whole affair, and I dropped out to see on MeTV an episode of Batman (in which Cesar Romero was playing the Joker), which was a fun little bit of old television.  In essence, the football  game looked like a high-school football game.  At the time that I dropped out of the game--which was at the 5-minute-and-52-second mark of the fourth quarter--Jackson State was winning with a score of 34 to 0.  South Carolina State looked like a bad high-school team, and Jackson State looked like an okay high-school team, and even though Jackson State was winning, I can report that, really, Jackson State was not winning the game soundly--South Carolina State was losing the game, with fumbles and bad punting and other nonsense.  In addition, Jackson State was not winning because of really good playing; for example, the quarterback often over-threw people or under-threw people--his targeting was often defective.  During the game, the announcing team wandered into crap about rap history and the best rap group of all time.  I say that it was nonsense about gangster-looking people.  Tiffany Greene did not come off as a leader of a broadcasting team, and I say that she came off as a sideline reporter and a follower, and often when she tried to hype of things with her voice, it fell flat, and at least once, her voice seemed to taper off to a whisper.  Basically, the broadcast team came off as a group of second bananas on the chart of broadcast quality, and I do not expect Tiffany Greene to end up doing NFL games, unless the management of the NFL and a the management of a television network plan to use affirmative-action-like actions.  The show was pushed out crap, such as when it noted that Michelle Obama (that rotten woman) had attended such-and-such a college, and it was pointed out in a chart by Jay Walker that Spike Lee (another nitwit Democrat) was from some college or other, and one of the lists shown (while Tiffany Greene was talking) had Tracy Abrams (a truly rotten black woman and politician) on it.  Also, Tiffany Greene pushed out the idea that some Americans are yet racially suppressed and not equal, "...especially African-Americans in this country.".  Oh, at half-time, marching bands were presented, and the first band (related to South Carolina State) was basically not heard because of bad audio pickup, and the next band (the "Sonic Boom" people Jackson State) was picked up a little better, but the band really did not do much, basically remaining in place for the performance segment shown.  Oh, the announcers in the booth could have had microphones that were better so that they would have been less covered up by the crowd.  By the third quarter of the game, I was eager for the episode of Batman to start, and, in the end, I have no idea what the final score was, and I do not care to know, since the broadcast was unpleasant in tone as a whole, especially the black-related political bullshit.
    Editorial Comment: In essence, Tiffany Greene did a political editorial--a racist-based editorial--in football game, where such a comment should never have been spoken, and if the management of ESPN and the management of ABC-TV were any good, the managers would fire Tiffany Greene for having done crap work or having done jackass work, and she reminds me of Tracy Abrams, and since Tiffany Greene will not be fired, it shows the crappy nature of the management of ESPN and ABC-TV.

    Before I go to commercial, I have a "first" to report.  On Saturday, September 9, 2023, television viewers in the country had five college football games running in prime time at the same time.  ABC-TV, CBS-TV, The CW, Fox TV, and NBC-TV offered up games; the game on The CW began at 6:30 p.m., and the game on Fox TV started at 7:00 p.m., and the other networks had a 7:30 p.m. start time [Note: The times are Eastern.].  In recent years, viewers had up to three games at a time on some Saturdays.

    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).

    From the late 1950s to the early 1980s, television viewers saw a lot of movie hosts on Detroit-area television, and one of the most known was Bill Kennedy, and Bill Kennedy did shows for Channel 9 (CKLW-TV) and for Channel 50 (WKBD-TV) during the period, and before he did work at Channel 9 (such as on Hollywood Showtime), which was started up in August 1956, Channel 9 had had, for instance, Shopper's Matinee and Monday Matinee.  On Thursday, January 27, 1955, Channel 9 presented under Thursday Matinee a movie called Freckles Steps Out, and it was presented at 3:00 p.m. (and not 1:00 p.m., a start time that would be commonplace for Bill Kennedy's shows over the years).  One reason that the movie did not start at 1:00 p.m. is CKLW-TV only began a broadcast day in the middle of the afternoon or so, and there was no broadcasting in the mornings yet, given Channel 9 was fairly new television station.  For this edition of Television History and Trivia, I present Freckles Steps Out as the presentation for Looking at the Movies, and the movie can be found for free on YouTube.  The movie is a low-budget film that was released in 1942.  It sort of has a plot, and it has some singing segments, such as those involving Johnny Downs, who plays Freckles, and Gale Storm, a cutie.  Years later, Gale Storm became very well-known to television viewers for being on television series, such as My Little Margie and The Gale Storm Show, and her heyday was in the 1950s and 1960s.  Other performers in the movie are Mantan Moreland (who is maybe most know for being in "Charlie Chan" movies) and Walter Sande (who did a lot of television stuff in the 1950s).  Walter Sande plays Mr. Jack Leach.  Who killed Jack Leach?--that is my question.  That is one thing that will come to mind when you see Freckles Steps Out.  And I tell the truth!

    In the past, I have passed along information about what television sets people in the Detroit area were using in the late 1940s and early 1950s, and I have yet to give information about what viewers in Windsor, Ontario, Canada, had for television sets.  I now present information about what new television sets might be bought for in stores of the Windsor area in August 1956, and I am using The Windsor Daily Star (August 2, 1956, pages 18 and 19) as the source.  A chain of stores called the Good Housekeeping Shops (176 Ouellette Avenue and 1622 Tecumseh Road) had an advertisement in the newspaper on August 2, 1956.  It noted that a person could buy a new General Electric 21-inch C21C36 ("The Cambrian") for $169.95, but a person had to trade in an older set (a 16-inch set or a 17-inch set) to get that price.  The regular price of the new set was $312.90.  Meanwhile, Waddell's (1299 London Street) had an RCA Victor 21TC254 ("The Radnor" Lowboy 21") set available for $199.95, and a person had to trade in an old 17-inch set to get the price, or the regular price was $329.95.  Elsewhere, McKay's (342 Park Street, West) had a General Electric l956 model called the C21T22 for the price of $138.88, and there was no trade-in requirement, and if a person wanted the legs for the set, and person had to pay an extra $9.95.  Of course, all the prices are in Canadian dollars at the time.  For fun, I note that 176 Ouellette Avenue is the home of Canada Gift Shop now, and 342  Park Street, West, is nothing but, for the most part, a bunch of slabs of old concrete today.

    I am not done with reporting on some television sets for sale.  On page 22 of The Windsor Daily Star for Friday, September 8, 1950, there were advertisements for television sets (as there were on page 23).  One advertisement on page 22 had two television sets featured, one of which was a table model from the television company called Admiral that had a 10-inch screen.  The main television set featured was an Admiral model with a 16-inch screen, and it was with a Swedish cabinet and had a rectangular tube, and it cost $499.95.  Oh, the seller (the store) was offering the Admiral sets on a 90-days-same-as-cash deal.  The seller was located at 680 Wyandotte Street East in Windsor, Ontario, Canada, and the seller was--Bear Cat Battery & Tire (which was a Firestone tire dealer).

    I wonder if some people have to walk on eggs shells at television stations today, fearing they might be seen as anti-socialists and anti-communists and then get fired.  Today, when some one, especially an on-air person, leaves a station, I have to wonder what the real underlying reason for the exit is (though--forever--radio and television jobs have been known for having a revolving door status for many reasons, such as conflict of personalities and egos).  I see Brandon Roux (a weather guy) is gone from Channel 4, WDIV-TV, and I am not saying that he is no longer at the station because something rotten is part of the reason, but I am only noting he is gone, and I am noting that I have learned he is gone.

    Hey!  Pay attention!  Look alive!  On Monday, August 14, 2023, at about 7:36 p.m., I was on "Bing" and called up Glenda Lewis (who is an news anchor on WXYZ-TV).  I was given page of stuff.  The main set of words (like a headline) was--"Glenda Lewis Bio, Age, Mother, Husband, Baby, Illness, Salary, Net...".  Under that was a colored box with three parts--"Glenda Lewis Biography", "How old is Glenda Lewis?--Age", and "Glenda Lewis Mother".  Under "Glenda Lewis Mother" was a photograph, and under the photograph was text that noted that Glenda is the daughter of Diana Lewis.  Hold it!  There's something wrong!  The photograph was in color.  Cool!  Oh, the photograph showed Carolyn Clifford (of WXYZ-TV).

    Years ago, there used to be specials that viewers would remember fondly, such as the "comeback special" (as it is thought of today) for Elvis Presley in 1968 (particularly Elvis of December 3, 1968), and now there are few specials worth remembering, but within the last three years, there have been specials that must be remembered for the rottenness that they presented to the people of the United States of America and the world.  In late January 2020 and early February 2020, Americans got 12 days of coverage of the U.S. Senate Impeachment Trial of Donald J. Trump [Note: It must be remembered that the U.S. Congress had done a lot of one-sided behind-the-scenes investigation stuff before this period of time showed up.].  In June 2022, starting on June 13, 2022, several days were used to broadcast the "spectaculars" (as I call them (negatively)) of the Select Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives, which was so-called investigating the events at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021 [Note: Use this tvspect link to learn details of the broadcasts.].  On  July 21, 2022, television networks pushed out shows about the breach of the U.S. Capitol (of January 6, 2021), and it was tied to the Select Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives, which was doing an investigation (maybe) of what had happened, and it was a prime-time broadcast.  On December 19, 2022, television viewers got exposed to live coverage related to the "Final Report" of the Select Committee of the House Investigating the Attack of January 6, 2021 on the U.S. Capitol [Note: Use this specttv2 link to learn more about the broadcast.].  On April 4, 2023, Donald J. Trump was arraigned in New York City, New York, and networks covered the event live in the afternoon for a couple hours, and it was about election dealings.  On June 13, 2023, a federal case against Donald J. Trump had Donald J. Trump showing up to a courthouse in Miami, Florida, and it was focused on a "federal-documents" case.  On August 3, 2023, broadcast networks pushed out coverage of Donald J. Trump's showing up in Washington, D.C., for an arraignment.  Through the broadcasts listed in this paragraph, it was shown that there was no evidence that Donald J. Trump did anything wrong, such as by being part of the so-called Russian-collusion thing, and broadcasts offered to the American public by the Select Committee showed no evidence of any criminal activity, and, for instance, witnesses had nothing to say that was useful (and often witnesses presented only their feelings about such and such).  By the way, no live broadcast was done by any network when the "Durham Report" was released and showed the F.B.I. and the U.S. Department of Justice did many corrupt actions related to the election of 2020, such as in relation particularly to spying on the Donald J. Trump campaign.  The "arraignment" broadcasts showed how broadcast media people practiced "journalistic malpractice," working to sell the idea that Donald J. Trump was guilty of bad actions, such as by saying that Donald J. Trump worked to "overthrow" the election, and the broadcasts were loaded with lies and fluff.  And the arraignment broadcasts showed government authorities, such as a man named Jack Smith, were corrupting laws and over-extending the limits of laws to bring charges against Donald J. Trump.  Despite that, networks once again presented a combined "spectacular" to viewers on August 24, 2023, when they once again broke away from normal weekday evening programming to cover yet another arraignment of Donald J. Trump--this one in Georgia--and once again, it was all journalistic malpractice.  Past editions of Television History and Trivia show many of the people--media people--who took part in what I consider the propaganda broadcasts related to the three previous arraignments.  Generally speaking, ABC-TV, CBS-TV, and NBC-TV covered the event of August 24, 2023, between 7:30 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. (and the exact start times and end times are unclear to me for this report, since the local affiliates of those networks where I was--in northern Lower Michigan--seemed not to carry all the programming, an example of which was a CBS-TV affiliate that dropped out at about 7:50 p.m.).  Here are most of the people who took part in what was mostly reports that just showed the motorcade with Donald J. Trump arriving and leaving the Fulton County Jail in Fulton County, Georgia--Blayne Alexander (for NBC-TV), Danny Cevallos (for NBC-TV), Robert Costa (for CBS-TV), Major Garrett (for CBS-TV), Gabe Gutierrez (for NBC-TV), Lester Holt (the anchor for NBC-TV), Hallie Jackson (for NBC-TV), Laura Jarrett (for NBC-TV), Jonathan Karl (for ABC-TV), Aaron Katersky (for ABC-TV), Nikole Killion (for CBS-TV), Rikki Klieman (for CBS-TV), Scott MacFarlane (for CBS-TV), David Muir (the anchor for ABC-TV), Norah O'Donnell (the anchor for CBS-TV), John Santucci (for ABC-TV), Pierre Thomas (for ABC-TV), Chris Timmons (for ABC-TV), Chuck Todd (for NBC-TV), and Kristen Welker (for NBC-TV).  The people who took part in the reports--not all of whom are listed in this document--must be remembered as those who helped push high-level propaganda.  There was nothing useful said by any one the people listed (who I heard).  I have to admit that the media people had to stretch to come up with stuff to say to put down Donald J. Trump, and it was commonplace for media people to sell the ideas that, for instance, Donald Trump was going to get "finger printed" and put in "mug shots," which tried to imply Donald J. Trump is a real criminal.  During the broadcasts on August 24, 2023, no one tied very closely to Donald J. Trump was interviewed--even on tape of earlier in the day--to report why the charges were bogus and were involved with corrupted law, which would have given the interviewees ways to provide their sides and try to prove their sides are right, and that was like what had happened in the previous "spectaculars" on television from, in essence, the Democratic Party and the media people beholden to the Democratic Party, which had started out with the attacks from Democratic Party-controlled hearings in the U.S. Congress, in which only one side of the issues or events had been presented and no pro-Donald J. Trump people had presented their evidence or their stories to counter what the Democrats had been putting in front of the public as so-called evidence.  Yes, in the prime-time access period (of 7:30 p.m. or so), the media guys and gals pushed out the idea that the charges were seriously against Donald J. Trump and not that the charges were defective.  In the end, the broadcasts of August 24, 2023, were hollow events, filled with hyped-up words and useless images.

    The live events that I have talked about (in the previous paragraph) have another theme--money.  Four arraignment events have forced Donald J. Trump to waste time and money--hundreds of thousands of dollars at least (it seems)--to travel to places and from places to make appearances, and money used in relation to those events have gone to airline crews, security crews, lawyers, et cetera.  Taxpayer money has been wasted by the entities that are running the prosecutions, and it is money that could have gone to do other things, such as fix potholes in roads, or the money could not have been taken from taxpayers to begin with.  The U.S. Congress wasted time and money on so-called investigations in relation to the two impeachments of Donald J. Trump and in relation to the January 6, 2021, breach the U.S. Capitol.  And the Georgia case also has 18 co-defendants' having to spend money to defend themselves.  In essence, the government entities who are running the four court cases--things yet taking place--can use an endless amount of money to do their work, which comes from taxpayers, even if the cases are corrupt and distorted, and the actions of the four prosecution entities are causing defendants to spend money, maybe to the point of bankruptcy.  A person can determine the prosecution entities are working to hurt people on fake charges--drain them of resources to hurt them--and that shows corruption.  By the way, the television events have also hurt television stations that carried the "spectaculars" (as I call them in jest), because the television stations lost advertising revenue, or the television stations had commercials pre-empted by useless broadcast events and images, such as images that showed off the Donald J. Trump-related chain of cars (with darkness windows) going from place to place, and, maybe that is why that one station that carried the event of August 24, 2023, dropped out at about 7:50 p.m., the management of it seeing a lot of nothing (which was pre-empting spot revenue).

    On August 29, 2023, I got exposed to an article in the Cheboygan Daily Tribune, which I rarely look at even though it is at the house every publication day, and I noticed while the edition was sitting on the kitchen counter this title to a story--"Poll: Biden is 'old,' Trump is 'corrupt'" [Weissert, Will, Emily Swanson, and Darlene Superville (of The Associated Press).  "Poll: Biden is 'old,' Trump is 'corrupt'."  Cheboygan Daily Tribune, 29 August 2023, p. 3A.].  But then I noticed the authors of the story, and I saw "Emily Swanson."  I had a sister named Emily Swanson, but she died some 50 years ago.  Here, it looked like this Emily Swanson and her associates were passing along crap, which is not surprising since the entity that owns the Detroit Free Press owns the Cheboygan Daily Tribune.  I know it is actually Joe Biden who is corrupt, and I know Donald J. Trump is not corrupt, as I have shown in a number of documents that I have at the website for The Hologlobe Press, such as television-related documents.  Since the story seemed to be based on a poll, it shows the crap that has been put into the heads of Americans about Donald J. Trump through numerous propaganda articles and television shows.  Here is one portion of the article--"...Trump, meanwhile, has been indicted in four cases featuring 91 total criminal counts and elicits words such as 'corrupt' and 'crooked' (named by 15%), along with 'bad' and other generally negative comments (11%).  Not far behind are words like 'liar" and "dishonest" (8%).  Another 8% offered generally positive comments like 'good,' though....". The number times that Donald J. Trump is or has been indicted is no show of rottenness in Donald J. Trump, since the cases have not be finished, and, anyway, the prosecution can be rotten in all the cases, which seems to be true.  So, to determine Donald J. Trump's quality by the number of times Donald J. Trump is indicted is defective analysis by people of Donald J. Trump.  The survey is distorted by corrupt thinking by the respondents.  But the article seemed to be concerned with putting down Donald J. Trump and maybe putting down a bit Joseph Biden (to make it seem the article was fair).  Such an article (which took up half a page) is not news!

    Remember: The Prisoner with Patrick McGoohan was a television show that was produced across the pond and shwn 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.
