Joshua Ledet The Next American Idol?

Joshua Ledet from Westlake, Louisiana is another step closer to becoming the Season 11 American Idol.

 

Joshua Ledet seems to be gaining momentum in his quest to be the American Idol. He got the best feedback from the judges and from Jimmy Iovine.

Ledet sings with emotion, which goes a long way in having a successful music career. I think he has the talent to be one of the more successful American Idols, but not sure how strong his voting base is having come from a smaller city in Westlake, Louisiana.

It was no surprise that Elise Testone was sent packing after all the negative feedback on Wednesday night. She had some really good nights and some really bad nights, but still has the talent to become a successful singer.

Jessica Sanchez has rebounded from her last place finish two or three weeks ago to stay in the competition, but can’t see her becoming the next American Idol, but if Joshua has a bad night, she could be the favorite to win it all. 

Phillip Phillips may find himself in the Bottom 3 next week, unless he makes a better impression on the judges and American Idol fans. Just my opinion for what little it is worth, but he doesn’t seem to be improving from week to week.

Hollie Cavanaugh keeps hanging around, but now she may the next to go home if Phillip Phillips doesn’t go home next week.

It was a huge surprise that Skylar Laine was in the Bottom 3 last night, after the judges had such positive feedback after she sang on Wednesday night. That raises the question of how strong her voter base is and if she is in Bottom 3 again next week, her time on the show could be nearing an end. 

There should be a lot of competition the next two weeks, as the singers try to make it to the Final 3 so they can visit their hometowns.

Living just a few miles from Joshua’s hometown of Westlake, Louisiana has me pulling, for him to be in the final three.

Oklahoma City Lady Calls In Bomb Threat After Receiving $14 Electric Bill

Most people would be ecstatic to receive a $14 electric bill, but Deidra Reed an Oklahoma City lady called in a bomb threat, after receiving her bill. Her threat resulted in her receiving a felony charge. 

She threatened to blow up Oklahoma Gas and Electric saying that she didn’t use enough electricity to have a $14 bill.

This reminds me of a episode of the Honeymooners, when Ralph Kramden went ballistic, when he found out the electric bill was $9. He went on and on about how they were going to have to cut back because of the huge electric bill.

The Oklahoma City lady also stated she is paying $40 a month for rent. When you add the $14 electric bill, that would be a total of $54 for rent and electricity.

Oklahoma City should see an influx of people, now that they know they can rent a place and pay for electricity for only $54.

Ryan Seacrest Signs $30 Million American Idol Contract

Ryan Seacrest has signed a new two year contract to host American Idol for $30 million in 2013 and 2014.

Ryan Seacrest who is finishing a three-year contract of $45 million for hosting American Idol has signed a new contract for $30 million.

Seacrest will have earmed $75 million for hosting American Idol from 2010-2014. Seacrest is similar to the late Dick Clark in that he is a disc jockey, television host and producer, so the American Idol salary only represents part of his yearly income.

He will have to slow down sooner or later, because he has so many irons in the fire. Seacrest now 35, may still be able to handle the present load, but with him being a host during the Olympics this summer, it should curtail his Entertainment News hosting and his radio show workload.

I don’t know for a fact, but imagine that Seacrest has learned a lot from his late friend Dick Clark, not only about hosting, but about how to be a successful producer.

The value of Seacrest was evident when Steve Jones hosted X-Factor and seemed very uncomfortable and asked contestants and judges some very foolish questions. Meanwhile, Seacrest is very comfortable on television and in particular when hosting American Idol

American Idol wouldn’t be the same without Seacrest and nobody could really replace him. There are many television hosts, but Ryan Seacrest is the host other hosts need to emulate.

Was LBJ Mastermind Behind JFK Assassination?

I have often considered Vice President Lyndon Baines Johnson as the architect behind the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

The following article says that LBJ told his mistress Madeleine Duncan Brown that those SOB’s will never embarrass me again the night before the assassination.

http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/august2006/300806jfk.htm

It makes sense why LBJ was quick to have the Warren Commission Report say that the assassination was by a lone gunman. That is why Lee Harvey Oswald was silenced two days after the assassination by a bullet from the gun of Jack Ruby.

I don’t expect everyone to agree with me, that LBJ was involved in the assassination, but he sure had motive, which was that he would become the president, since he was first in line for the presidency.

We may never know the truth about what happened on that day in Dealey Plaza, but so far nobody has proved to me conclusively that Lee Harvey Oswald was acting on his own. He may have fired the fatal shots that killed JFK that day, but that doesn’t mean he wasn’t part of a conspiracy to assassinate JFK.

2013 will be the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F.Kennedy, Hundreds of books have been written about the JFK assassination, which makes it difficult to sort out fact from fiction. The only thing we know for sure is that President Kennedy was shot down in cold blood on a Dallas street, but I still can’t believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted on his own.

Mary’s Mosaic Tells Story Behind Murder of JFK Mistress, JFK’s Use of LSD

Peter Janney, the author of Mary’s Mosaic: The Conspiracy to Murder, John F. Kennedy, Mary Pinchot Meyer and Their Vision of World Peace may have written one of the best murder mysteries in his new non-fiction book released earlier this month.

It seems like there is no end to books about JFK’s affairs and this is one more such book. Janney attempts to show that Mary Pinchot Meyer was the mistress of JFK and when she started her personal investigation of his assassination she may have got too close to the truth.

The book tells of a CIA hitman named William Mitchell who shot and killed Meyer on a walking path in Georgetown, Maryland. Mitchell has reportedly vanished off the face of the earth and can’t be located, after telling investigative reporter Leo Damore that the murder of Meyer was standard operating procedure for the CIA. 

Janney leaves us to believe that JFK and Meyer experimented with drugs, but no concrete evidence of this is revealed. Meyer was very good friends with Dr. Timothy Leary and Leary had been interviewed by Damore before Damore committed suicide. Janney was able to purchase Damore’s notes and audio tapes in 2004, and apparently used those notes and tapes to write this book.

So once again JFK who was assassinated 49 years ago next November 22 is the subject of yet another book that portrays him,  as a adulterer who for the first time I know of, also reportedly using drugs.

Reviews of the book at Amazon.com are very favorable with 23 readers of 27 giving it five stars. No reader gave it the lowest ranking of one star.

Just when we think nothing new can come out about the assassination of JFK, this book shows us that there is still a lot we don’t know about our former president.
