Real true open lines back on Coast to Coast AM.?

Weekend host John B Wells is sitting in for George Noory tonight on the show Coast to Coast a.m. And he is doing something that has not been done since Art Bell hosted: Open lines with no call screener.

Ever since Bell left the program to George Noory, call screeners have been included with open lines on the program. It appears that tonight, Wells will have four hours of unadulterated open lines, something he is calling naked calls.

How open they are is yet to be seen, and most likely the 10 second delay button will be ready. But it is fascinating that he has gotten so much attention over this program, as it has been so long since true open lines were actually done.

Expect to see this photo in lots of places around the web .. This is Valeria Lukyonova. She is being billed as the real life BARBIE. Oh, and the photo you are looking at is real. It’s her. Not photoshopped, either. It sort of makes me physically ill, how about you?

The GOP lament: Was it Chris Christie's fault!?


Robert Costa wrote a NATIONAL REVIEW article today, linked above, about the election results. What caused Romney to lose?
The quote on NJ Gov Chris Christie that caught my attention:
Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey, the adviser adds, is persona non grata in Romney’s inner circle. “He went out of his way to embrace the president during the final week of the campaign,” the adviser says. “It wasn’t necessary and it hurt us. Todd Akin, Richard Mourdock, and Chris Christie undermined the Republican message.”
Maybe Christie’s embrace of Obama hurt Romney. Maybe Chris Christie crying after Bruce Springsteen called hurt Romney. But in the end it helped his citizens, and quite frankly, it helped Chris Christie.
Think about it.. Your state just went through a disaster of monumental proportions. Entire towns are gone. An entire coastline is changed. What else CAN YOU DO but ask the President of the federal purse for help? What else can you do but put politics aside..? You have no option.
And on the political flipside? It’s a win-win for Chris Christie. Obama in office for four more years, and after 8 years of a presidency it’s easier for a different party to win.. In 2016, I bet Chris Christie runs for the presidency.. Romney losing this year allows him to do that. Obama being out of office by then allows him to have a weaker field to run against. And he will win in 2016. I say it now. Put it on the record. 
ON this date, a date after 11/6/12, I say Chris Christie will win in 2016. Unless the Mayan calender ends in December and the world gets decimated by the mighty hand of the higher power. Otherwise Christie/Rand Paul (you read that right) wins in 2016 against …Clinton/Biden!
So sayseth the Coalspeaker. So sayseth the lord.

ELECTION DAY: OVER!

You know what headlines are today. Here's other news you may not know about that you should..

WIRED magazine has a story just in time for the post-election day debate: The 7 technologies that will make it easier for the President to hunt and kill you..

Win one for the GMO.. It looks like all of the dollars Monsanto and others were able to place into the California food labeling proposition have been rewarded with a vote from citizens keeping genetically modified food hidden from view. Prop 37 has failed, 54% against and 46% in favor. The scare tactics about higher grocery prices worked. So chemicals can now be happily littered into food and no one gets to know about it. Because it may cost a few pennies more... Meanwhile Cali voted FOR A proposition that raised taxes. I just don't get the mood of voters this year.

The ongoing effects of the Fukushima nightmare still linger..

Hundreds of 'UFO's' reported around the Indo-Chinese border..

Natural gas fracking could HURT the property value of nearby homes

New York and New Jersey prepare for another storm..

Up to a foot of snow expected in wake of Sandy!

Obama victory probably means that NASA is still on course to put astronauts on an asteroid by 2025..

The Duke of Dracula? New story claims Prince Charles has a vampire bloodline..

HEY CANDIDATES: YOU JUST SPENT BILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN ORDER TO KEEP EVERYTHING EXACTLY THE SAME AS IT WAS! PRICELESS!


The election is over. WE CAN ALL UNITE and be thankful for that. The campaign mudslinging gets tiresome—even boring. The  negative ads were so plentiful this year that, frankly, people stopped noticing them. It was just frightening images of President Obama and Governor Romney set Armageddon style music. But it’s over. We have a winner. And it happened long before many thought it would. No recount. No hanging chads. No computer glitches of concern—well, there were but as usual the media ignored the problems with electronic machines.

But what has changed?

Before the election yesterday, Democrats controlled the Senate, Democrats had the White House, and Republicans had the House.

After the election today? Democrats control the Senate, Democrats have the White House, and Republicans have the House.

This after billions of dollars spent on advertising!?

Billions of dollars spent to … keep everything the same?

I am not a money-man, a banker, or a fiscal prophet. But if someone told me to spend a billion bucks just to keep my house, my job, my car, and make no changes, I’d turn the cheek and take a risk by not doing it. 

Our elections are getting expensive. The Supreme Court decision years back allowing corporations to give more ensured that. Are we getting more for the money, though? We certainly had our TV airwaves taken over by candidates this year. Billions upon billions of dollars spent while Hurricane Sandy victims still are without running water, electricity, and food. Billions of dollars on a campaign while wars continue.. while poverty abounds.. while people are working three jobs instead of two just to make ends meet. Billions of bucks on the campaign.

Just to keep the status quo.

And speaking of status quo, not to be glum while America parties, there is something coming on January 1 2013 that few are concerned about: The fiscal cliff. The moment when taxes increase for everyone in this nation all at one time. When government spending has issues.. when people’s deductions get affected.. when life fiscally as we know it changes. And Congress, the Senate, and the White House are fully aware of the impending financial doom. The cliff is fast approaching. Billions of dollars were spent to make certain that the SAME PLAYERS would be in Washington that brought us to the edge of this mess. As of right now, no serious attempts have yet been made to correct the problem, or divert it from happening. A lame duck session of Congress is coming. Maybe they will come up with a magic solution? Or just keep doing things as they have been done.

No changes.

Status quo.

It’s tough to say just yet what, if anything, will change as a result of President Obama’s re-election. 

The nation is slightly divided. A pretty evenly split popular vote, though the President did have a resounding victory on the Electoral College map. 

If I had to make any prediction about what changed, I’d say this: Republicans will have to deeply analyze their message and determine what they could do about it. Was Romney just a flawed candidate? Was Santorum right ..was Gingrich right..was Bachmann right? They all said Romney could not beat a sitting President. And Chris Christie sat this one out. Maybe he was thinking Romney loses, too, setting up a 2016 run (or walk for him) to the White House? Or maybe the Ron Paul wing of the party needs some more press. Or maybe the Green Party, the Libertarian Party, the Reform Party, and others, need to be brought into the big tent of media coverage that only covers two parties? 

I don’t know.

But what I do know is that today, just like November 5 2012, everything feels quite the same..

Art Bell makes his call

He's going for Obama




Art Bell makes his call

He's going for Obama




I was watching coverage of the election on all three major networks, CNN, Fox, and MSNBC. On those programs during interviews, Republicans look a little nervous and Democrats look a little overconfident. Not sure if my observations mean anything, it could just be that Republicans are nervous and Democrats are overconfident, or it could mean that exit polls show a substantial margin of victory for president Obama..

We won’t know officially until later, or even later than later, but I will continue to read the tea leaves and follow the airwaves along with reading as many websites and blogs as I can to find out if anyone can prognosticate who the president will be before the election gets called officially..

And what time the official recognition of a president comes? That is where the night could get long..

THE CHOICE: DON'T BE SCARED


America is set to vote..
All the ads, all the money.. all now history. The real story begins and ends with each citizen, in the polling place, deciding who should run the school board, the county.. the congress.. the nation. All up to Mr. And Mrs. Citizen. Joe Sixpack. All of those corny phrases ..

The election may be close, so the experts say. The pundits also tell us it could be disputed. Which means even more so that every vote counts. Remember in the year 2000? Votes counted then. Of course the real vote was the Supreme Court, their words certainly had more weight..

Nonetheless, in the year 2012, what is the choice?
Each campaign has framed the debate his (or her) own way.
But none of the frames matter.
The negative ads? They are meaningless too.
The debates? They meant something, but don't know.
No, now you count.
You mean something.
You are the person who gets to decide.

There is something special about a free and fair election. We in America assume we have those things still. Hopefully our assumption will not be disproven by widespread fraud.. keep the fraud at a minimum. And in Philadelphia. But during a free election, you can walk into a polling place in silence, head held high, cast your choice, and walk out proud. Will your vote be counted? Well, that is for another time and place. But knowing you can  do what you did without worry or trepidation or repudiation? Well, that feels alright ...

So go make it count. Regardless of the candidate that you have bought into, no matter the talking points you have recited, just go and be silent in that polling place. Your vote speaks a million words.

AMERICA'S CHOICE, 2012.
For better or worse. Here we go.

Another bizarre situation: new Jersey has earthquake

you read that headline right, the state of New Jersey is dealing with the aftermath of hurricane Sandy but now it is adding a 2.0 magnitude earthquake to the list of things to worry about

It was close to New York City, and only had a depth of 3 miles..

Very strange times that we live in, even stranger along the northeast coast, which is bracing for yet another storm Wednesday
