THE REAL LEO GOLD SHOW THAT KPFT DOESN’T WANT YOU TO HEAR!

What you’ve heard from Ernesto is false. What he’s saying about what was said on Thursday’s show is only half true. Listen to the entire show — more remarks to follow.

More from Mr. Gold on how things work in Leo’s World…

“I have received your reply via Bill Crosier. You continue to refuse to address me directly. You are now demanding an apology. If you wanted an apology you could have asked for one directly from me before you placed a post on a Jones forum with the title “KPFT HATES ALEX JONES.” That is a clear attempt to inflame ill will in that community against the entire KPFT community and I will be sure to make listeners aware of it next week, as well as the managers whom you continue to ply for redress. In the meantime, I will review yesterday’s tape, which I have not yet done. If I feel you or anyone else is owed an apology, I will issue one – I have issued several apologies in the past and I don’t hesitate to do so when one is warranted. You might consider your own apology, which many at KPFT may feel you now owe.”  –Leo Gold

Let me be clear Leo — I’m not interested in your apology.  The community was inflamed when you decide to declare your caller a conspiracy theorist and and a “dangerous threat”.  The damage is done, and just because you’re sorry doesn’t erase what you’ve done.  As for me, all I have done is hold up a mirror, and apparently you don’t like what you see.  So as Michael Jackson says maybe you should start with the man in the mirror before you start pointing fingers at me.  I mean really…what did I do..?   I don’t have a radio show.  I’m not able to hang up on people and then hold them up to ridicule. However, you DO have a show even if it is only two hours a week.  You DO  hang up on people and then cowardly insult them behind in the safety of the KPFT control room.

When you referred to good people as “conspiracy theorist” and as “dangerous” in a weak attempt to discredit them, you marginalized an entire population of the country who have struggled to come to terms with what they know to be right.  They have bravely come forward to present their beliefs, and you marginalized and humiliated them in a very public manner, on the people’s air waves.  KPFT can air all the disclaimers they want, but they are the ones who provide the board, transmitter and tower so you might broadcast your little hate speech to the city of Houston and beyond.  Therefore, they can stand in league with you now.  Perhaps they should screen their air staff a bit more carefully.

On Thursday, you did not give the caller the benifit of addressing him privately. So Leo, I’m not going to extend that curtisy to you now.  This started in public, and it will now continue in public.  As KPFT continues to support you, this very public dialogue will include them as well.  One thing you should know.  The people of the Truth Movement are not some broken down marginalized slaves Mr. Gold.  We are people what have taken a stand against tyranny and people like yourself who are the mouth pieces of tyranny.  We won’t back down, because we can’t back down.  You’ll do well to remember that the next time you decide to engage in personal attacks on your radio show.

Please, from now on, don’t try to contact me directly with some back room apologies.  At the very least, show the same boldness you did when you slandered the character of your caller.  Make your statements in public, because we all want to hear what you have to say…

LABOR DAY WEEKEND AND THE 5D MARK II

IMG_8726

I’m spending this weekend with Jake, kitty and the 5D Mark II.  So far it’s been totally amazing, and I can totally see what all the fuss is about.  Trust me when I say, if you enjoy taking pictures, you’re in for a great ride.  Video, which is the primary reason I wanted to play with the 5D takes some finesse to get right.  Initially, I shot video in full auto mode.  Expect some grain when doing this.  In manual,  got much better results.  Check out some of the better images below, and video will follow in the coming days.

One big gripe here though, and pardon my negativity.  My gripe is with the City of Houston, specifically Metro Transit Authority.  All this consistent hype about how shooting in Houston is permit free, blah, blah, blah!  Don’t believe it.  We were on the dock waiting for the light rail just around Texas street.  An angry homeless guy came up to us and starts harassing us for change.  I look to my right and there was a Metro Police Car, and I waved at him hoping he would keep this guy moving who was now becoming belligerent.  I’m usually not so nervous in these situations, however, I did have $2500.00 worth of camera strapped around my neck.

The cop yelled out something, but we couldn’t hear over the homeless guy screaming that all he wanted was to talk, and he didn’t want any money, yea right.  Finally the homeless guy splits, and we could understand what the cop was saying:  “NO VIDEO OF THE TRAIN!”  I’m like…what the hell..?

It seems harassing pedestrians is fine, but if you intend to take a picture of the Metro Light Rail, well you’ll be dealing with the long arm of law.  I’m not sure if it’s because they thought I was some sort of photo terrorist or if they don’t want any potentially damaging images of a fatality, (they don’t call it the DEATH RAIL for nothin).  Whatever the reason, they just don’t allow no picture takin of the Metro Light Rail in Houston…  H-Town — and the H is for Hater!   So no video of the train in the permit free city of Houston.   Whatever, I got some video of the train, and now I’m on a mission to get more…POWER TO THE PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!
