classification documents about the death of JFK to be released

Filed under: True Crime, TV shows — furtherglory @ 2:22 pm

In these recent news articles, you can read about the documents that will soon be released:

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/jfk-assassination-trump-to-allow-release-of-classified-documents/

http://time.com/4606082/jfk-assassination-secrets/

In the documents, it is revealed that the secret service agent who jumped onto the back of a moving car and shoved Jackie Kennedy to the floor of the car was Clint Hill. Jackie had been trying to retrieve a piece of her husband’s skull that had been blown off his head when he was shot.

Today when I saw TV shows about how Jackie was protected by a secret service man, I recalled the time when I interviewed Clint Hill when I was working as a recruiter for Management Recruiters. He came into my office with a resume when he was looking for a job after he had left the secret service. On his resume, his name was C.E. Hill and his job experience did not include his experience as a secret service man.

I can tell you that he was a very handsome man, but not at all conceited. He was a very nice person.

He started telling me about his experience since leaving the secret service two years ago. After a few minutes, I told him to cut the crap — I said I know who you are, and all potential employers will know who you are. I told him that he was world famous as the man who risked his own life to save the life of Jackie Kennedy.

A few weeks later, he called me to tell me that he had taken my advice and that he had told the truth about his experience. He had manged to get a good job working with the state of California.

Megyn Kelly is back in the news….

Filed under: TV shows — furtherglory @ 12:37 pm

Let me say right off the bat that I love Megyn Kelly. She is very beautiful and very gutsy (if that is a word).

Her problem is that she is not highly educated and she makes many mistakes; she doesn’t know what every college graduate knows, and that makes her appear to be stupid.

Megyn is in the news now because of her recent interview with Tom Brokaw.

The following quote is from this news article: https://jezebel.com/confusing-and-a-little-jarring-what-tv-anchors-think-o-1819150675

Begin quote

When NBC announced the decision to give Kelly her own morning slot—despite poor ratings for her initial Sunday night series—a swath of viewers and fellow media members disapproved, especially since it meant she’d be replacing fan favorites Tamron Hall and Al Roker.

In her first week on air, Kelly managed to make headlines at least, leaving Jane Fonda dumbfounded by a plastic surgery question. In the second week, days after the deadliest mass shooting in the US., Kelly was criticized for appearing to cut off Tom Brokaw as he was critiquing the NRA.

Behind the scenes, the show’s producers seem to be struggling to figure out what a Megyn Kelly show should look like. While NBC remains patient by necessity, and as Kelly grows more comfortable in the role, ratings have reportedly been soft and slipping since the first week, hitting a “possible all-time low” for the Today Show brand, according to Page Six sources. Adjacently, publicists appear to be reluctant to feature their clients on the show—“I literally haven’t pitched anyone even from right out the gate. The buzz that is out there is so bad,” one publicist told Variety.

Many of the TV anchors and personalities I spoke to—who work for local stations or major network affiliates—agree that there’s a problem, much of which has to do with Kelly’s attempt to outrun her past life. Here’s what peers had to say about the Megyn Kelly Today format, its execution, pros, cons, and whether Megyn Kelly can survive in the morning.

That’s all she wrote — and she rubbed that out. (words from an old song)

Where are the Soprano actors now?

Filed under: TV shows — furtherglory @ 2:03 pm

I have just finished watching the re-runs of the TV show entitled The Sopranos. I have watched this show many times since it ended several years ago.

In the last episode of the show, the Soprano daughter is shown as she tries to parallel park.  I learned to park in order to pass the test for my driver’s license. I passed and was complimented on how well I parked. I never parked that way again for the rest of my life.

You can watch the video to learn what happened to the cast members when the show was over.

In the last episode of the show, an old house is shown for a brief second. It was not mentioned in the show that this old brown house is famous. I have often wondered where this house is located, and why it was shown in the show.

The new TV show entitled “Young Sheldon” is finally out, and it is a dud

Filed under: movies, TV shows — Tags: — furtherglory @ 9:22 am

The problem with this new TV show is that I had already seen it, bit by bit, in the ads that have played day and night for six months, before the show was finally shown on TV.

I think that the TV show was filmed over a period of time, maybe 6 months or so, and Young Sheldon does not appear to be the same age in all of the scenes of the show, which are purported to have been taken during the same time period.

In one of the scenes that were shown, before the TV show was released, Sheldon has two front teeth. In the TV show, there are no teeth in sight, except for one scene.

I would suggest, in the future, that an entire TV show should not be shown, bit by bit, before it is released months later.

I can relate to this show because, as a young girl, I was very advanced for my age. I had a brother who was 18 months older than I was. Because he was a bad little boy, my brother was kicked out of school when he was in the first grade.

My mother had to teach my brother at home, after he was kicked out of school, and I was allowed to listen in, so I had learned to read before I went to school. Then I was kicked out of school because I was too smart; my brother had been kicked out because he was too stupid.

I am now 84 and hopefully schools have changed now, so that children of different levels are taught in separate classrooms.

Megyn Kelly’s interview with Putin

Megyn Kelly is shown as she interviews Putin

You can read all about Megyn Kelly’s interview with Putin at http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/wireStory/oliver-stone-megyn-kelly-stuff-putin-47896689

When I first heard that Megan Kelly was going to interview Putin, I thought that this was not a good idea. I love Megyn Kelly, but she is not an expert on anything. I was very dubious about her plan to interview Putin and as it turns out, I was right. She did not do well in the interview.

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Film director Oliver Stone, whose series of conversations with Vladimir Putin air next week on Showtime, said he watched Megyn Kelly interview the Russian president on NBC and concluded that “he knew his stuff and she didn’t.”

Kelly’s interview, which aired on the debut of her newsmagazine, “Sunday Night with Megan Kelly,” on Sunday, “became machine-gun like,” Stone said, and was an example of how American journalism frequently leaves little room for nuance.

“I think she was attractive and she asked hardball questions, but she wasn’t in position to debate or counter him, because she didn’t know a lot of things,” he said.

NBC News President Noah Oppenheim shot back that “no one here is interested in Oliver Stone’s unsolicited thoughts on Megyn Kelly’s appearance or his ill-informed opinion of her journalism.”

“But so long as we’re offering each other professional feedback, please let him know I don’t think he’s made a decent movie since the early ’90s,” he said.

Putin was combative when asked in the NBC interview about hacking in the U.S. presidential election and relations between Russia and President Donald Trump’s team. He’s more serene on Showtime, where more than a dozen interviews that Stone conducted with the Russian president between 2015 and early this year unfold one hour per night for four nights starting Monday.

End quote

Putin is noted for being a woman-hater. Megyn should have known that and she should have passed up the opportunity to interview him.

Donald Trump’s wife did not go up to the famous Western Wall in Jerusalem

Filed under: Trump, TV shows, Uncategorized — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 8:01 am

This morning I watched, on TV, as President Trump went up to touch the Western Wall in Jerusalem. He was not accompanied by his wife. This led me to wonder if women are allowed to touch the wall.

Years ago, when I was traveling the world over, I wanted to go to Israel. I consulted a Jewish friend about this, and he told me not to go to Israel. He said “the Jews will rob you, rape you, and leave you lying in a ditch beside the road”. Those were his exact words. So I didn’t go to Israel.

This morning I read a news article which answered my question about whether women could go up to the Western Wall: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/trump-becomes-first-sitting-u-s-president-to-visit-the-western-wall/

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

President Trump on Monday became the first sitting American president to visit the Western Wall in Jerusalem, which is considered Judaism’s holiest site.

Mr. Trump was seen placing a note inside the wall as he visited the mens-only side — a tradition visitors can partake in by writing a prayer or request and placing it in one of the wall’s cracks. Meanwhile, first lady Melania Trump was seen standing in front of the small portion of the wall devoted to women.

End quote

Apparently all TV cameras were on Trump, while no one photographed Melania as she touched “the  small portion of the wall devoted to women.”

Are you getting sick of “there’s no there, there”?

Filed under: California, TV shows, Uncategorized — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 11:45 am

How many times do you hear someone on the news today say “there’s no there, there”?

Young people today probably don’t know who originated this expression, nor do they know what it means. Gertrude Stein wrote this about the city of Oakland, CA which is very close to San Francisco, CA.

Oakland is famous for having expensive, luxury homes: https://www.zillow.com/oakland-ca/luxury-homes/

Gertrude Stein was a rich Jew. The expensive homes in Oakland were not good enough for her. That’s why she wrote her famous line.

Shown below is a typical Oakland home, which was not good enough for Gertrude Stein.

Bill O’Reilly has been kicked to the curb

Filed under: TV shows, Uncategorized — furtherglory @ 3:09 pm

There have been rumors for days, about Bill O’Reilly; finally the day has come: O’Reilly has been kicked out of his TV show.

You can read all about it in this news article: https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/bill-oreilly-is-officially-out-at-fox-news/2017/04/19/74ebdc94-2476-11e7-a1b3-faff0034e2de_story.html?utm_term=.5dae0cc9bd52

This all started when O’Reilly insulted Megan Kelly on his TV news show. The insult was something about “blood coming out of her what-ever.” Or was it Donald Trump who hurled that insult? Bill and the Donald are like two peas in a pod.

The following quote is from the news article cited above:

Begin quote

Fox News on Wednesday ended its association with Bill O’Reilly, the combative TV host and commentator who has ruled cable-news ratings for nearly two decades and was the signature figure in the network’s rise as a powerful political player.

The conservative-leaning host’s downfall was swift and steep, set in motion less than three weeks ago by revelations of a string of sexual harassment complaints against him. The questions about his conduct represented yet another black eye to Fox, which had dealt with a sexual harassment scandal involving its co-founder and then-chairman Roger Ailes, just last summer.
