I Am the Second Coming

There are prophecies in the Holy Scriptures that prophesy that I am THE SECOND COMING. In the next few days, I will elucidate, enumerate and elaborate on the prophecies about me. Come on, man!! Have you not read in the Scriptures about the sounding of THE LAST TRUMPET? Have you not heard of the RAPTURE? In the meantime, start looking into the clouds and listening for “the sounding of the last trump.”

I am seen at the bottom of the marquee. I like to close the night out. UPDATE: last night there were many fine, gorgeous women screaming and hollering during my songs like I was the The Beatles. I am not making this up. I am more surprised than anybody. They were screaming even during some of my songs on the trumpet. All of those fine thangs in their short shorts and mini-skirts screaming and cutting up like that made me regret not filming the show.

I like to close the show.

Before I started playing my trumpet on Thursday night at the club, I read:
From the lyrics of the song…
We are travelling in the footsteps
Of those who’ve gone before us
But we’ll all be reunited
On a new and sunlit shore!
Oh when the saints go marching in
Oh Lord I want to be in that number!

My Self Portrait

I just thought of the idea of having a self portrait done in order to cement my spot in posterity. Plus, it is important for me to complete “my story” for history. I want to work on smoothing out the rough edges, and laying on the finish coat of the product.

Speaking of legacy, my oldest granddaughter Diajelle’s grandmother MiMi (my ex-wife) asked me to print this certificate out to give to her mother (my ex-mother-in-law). Diajelle (who makes 17 this weekend) was selected as a member of the National Honor Society. She is also very thoughtful and kind to her grandfather, me.

I have started mixing my martinis with the real James Bond martini recipe. I twerk the recipe a little bit to fit my taste. James Bond favored his martinis “shaken not stirred.” However, I am okay with mine stirred because I like to have a bit of ice in mine any way.

In other news, My lingering question about Fox News is: After fine, sexy-legged Gretchen Carlson of Fox News lost her contract with Fox, where did that pretty cutie-pie work then? I miss her on her afternoon show. Gretchen’s contract was not renewed with Fox because she filed sexual harassment charges against her then-Fox boss, Roger Ailes.

DeNiro Said Trump Is

Covfefe?? I write this to Bob Kuhn, the host of the Comedy Hour at the NEUTRAL GROUND Coffee House in New Orleans: LOL… you are too funny, Bob. I am coming tonight with some jokes for you and the crowd. I probably will not do any jokes on politics or Donald J. Trump. You know that I basically avoid such jokes because I never know what the audience will be like. I will come to the show with rings on my fingers and bells on my toes.

Check out @BrownUniversity’s Tweet and what Robert De Niro said about Donald Trump:

“This guy (Donald Trump) has sullied the presidency. He’s debased the presidency. It’s just beyond surreal what this guy has done,” De Niro told Rosanna Scotto on “Good Day New York.”

The actor has also called Trump “blatantly stupid” and “a punk,” comments he still stands by.

Pics of My Mom and Sibs

Here are five pictures of my family at a party. Plus, below I added several more pictures.

This is the picture (below) that I was planning to post individually. Everyone saw a different picture because people commented on that picture first.

This week, I am studying the practice of jumping the broom. I believe that spiritually this practice is for real. However, legally and civilly, you have to abide by the laws of the State when it comes to being considered married in the eyes of the State.

Jumping the broom
This Wikipedia article is about the custom and phrase.

Jumping the broom is a phrase and custom relating to a wedding ceremony where the couple jumps over a broom. It has been suggested that the custom is based on an 18th-century idiomatic expression for “sham marriage”, “marriage of doubtful validity”; it was popularized in the context of the introduction of civil marriage in Britain with the Marriage Act 1836.

There have also been suggestions that the expression may derive from an actual custom of jumping over a “broomstick” (where “broom” refers to the common broom rather than the household implement) associated with the gypsies (Romani) of the United Kingdom.[2] especially those in Wales.[3]

Jesus walks on water.

The custom of a marrying couple literally jumping over a broom is now most widespread among African Americans, popularized in the 1970s by the novel and miniseries Roots but originating in the mid 19th century as a practice in antebellum slavery in the United States.[4]

Where Will Gretchen Carlson Work Next?

After fine, sexy-legged Gretchen Carlson of Fox News lost her contract with Fox where did she go? Where will that pretty cutie-pie work now? I miss her on her afternoon show. Gretchen’s contract was not renewed with Fox after she filed sexual harassment charges against her Fox boss, Roger Ailes.

New Orleans (Gazette) March 17,2018 — My oldest granddaughter Diajelle Batiste’s grandmother MiMi (my ex-wife) asked me to print this certificate out to give to her mother (my ex-mother-in-law). Diajelle (who makes 17 this weekend) was selected as a member of the National Honor Society. She is also very thoughtful and kind to her grandfather, me.

Awww, man!! More people should also confront Fox News like actor D. L. Hughley did last night. FOX NEWS is an illegal, holocaust-driven institution just like the NAZI’s were in 1930’s Germany.

I was actually watching Megyn Kelly’s show last night when D.L. Hughley would ‪#‎NOT‬ allow Fox News’ Kelly to loud talk and push him around with Foxnews’ typical hate and bigotry. Hughley went toe-to-toe with her even when she tried to shut him up (typical ‪#‎FOX‬ tactic) and blatantly insult him. Geaux ‪#‎TeamDL‬. I later watched Bill O’Reilly talk some incredible hate and bigotry on the Seth Meyers’ show where Seth could not handle ‪#‎OReilly‬. FOX should be outlawed for stirring up all this hate and murder from the bigots and haters in America. ‪#‎FoxNews‬ is just like Adolf Hitler and the NAZI’s having a network in America and stirring up the ‪#‎Holocaust‬ here.

I am not sure that the story at the link below is true. How in the world can the Republican Convention be opening next week, and the delegates that each candidate won not be bound to that candidate on the first ballot? What is the article at the link below talking about? Whatever delegates that Donald Trump won in the primaries must be bound to Donald at least on the first ballot.

Back to Gretchen. Another Fox News anchor, Kimberly Guilfoyle, defends their FOX boss, Roger Ailes.

Yes, Gretchen, I believe you!

Gretchen is reliable!

Yes, I Got Liked

Look at the surprise #notification that I received last night from Twitter:

A miracle surely did occur inside my house at 7:10 pm New Orleans time on Friday the 13th (May, 2016). I will write about it here at my http://www.DeleryGazette.com blog at some point later this weekend because the effects might not quite be finito yet. In fact, I will go off right now in order to re-ignite my Catholic novena candle so that I can fire up more miraculous power from the good #Lord

Also, I was searching this morning for some stuff, and found some very interesting Chinese names.

Former presidential candidate Ted Cruz’s 600 delegates could possibly insist at the Republican convention in July that their votes actually count toward Ted Cruz, hurting Trump’s luster and bluster at the convention. The runner-up himself could minimize his support of Donald Trump if Trump sets an ugly tone towards Cruz’s rights to give a convention speech as the runner up. Plus, there are 3 other possibilities which could or might rear their ugly heads at the Republican convention.

The vote for Trump’s vice-presidential nominee could become contentious. There could be a fight by true conservatives to plug into the platform some of their policies; or, God forbid, some delegates could insist upon a rules change disallowing the 8-state minimum wins in order to nominate anyway who has won delegates. In New Orleans (in other political news) is it illegal for a judge to give a man jail time in a closed hearing from inside a closed court room?

The eleven-day sentence handed down by a local judge has kicked up some controversy in New Orleans. I have truly supported and backed this judge politically in the past. In fact, I have been a grand supporter of his for many years. I plan to read the bulk of paperwork from this case because there has to be something more to the story than reported publicly.

Coming Soon: My Comedy Set

I will let y’all know when I do my #comedy set at The Neutral Ground Club in New Orleans. I had a grand time last night, but I remained seated when they called me up for my turn. The act before mine (by a good friend) was too excellent. How in the world could I, in my right mind, follow that?

Hahaha… Next time!!

I might also show the audience some of my nifty dance moves. People often tell me that they thought that I was Michael Jackson up there on the dance floor.

dance club

Yes, I can perform. That is I.

I call this dance my big, whopper-head dance. You just have to move around and act like you are waxing on, waxing off somebody’s big, shiny whopper head. It is easy, and it is fun. Speaking of dancing, it looks like ex-dancer and current Let’s Make a Deal model, Tiffany Coyne, had a birthday. I tweeted to her a Happy Birthday.
