I woke up today and our DSL is working again. We were told that it would not be working again until Sunday or Monday. Last night my brother Big Mike and I loaded all of the Wide Awakes Radio broadcast software on Big Mike's laptop and went to IHOP at 2:30am to test it and make sure that we could broadcast The Passionate America Show from his laptop at IHOP if we needed to. There are a lot of funny drunk people at IHOP at 2:30am on a Friday night. We might try to do a live remote from IHOP tonight just for the fun of it.
I was online tonight and our phone line and DSL went down. We called to find out what the problem is and they said they will have to send a tech out. So no internet in my house until Sunday or Monday. We are trying to get all of the broadcast software loaded on my brother's computer and will probably have to broadcast from McDonalds or Starbucks tomorrow night. Unless I can find an internet connection I will not be posting until my internet connection is back up. Make sure to listen to The Passionate America Party Show Saturday night at 10pm Central Time.
Witch emailed me this joke:
The Iranian Ambassador to the UN had just finished giving a speech, and walked out into the lobby where he met President Bush.
I spent the entire day yesterday with my family, running errands, and getting things done. We went to the Tag Agency yesterday and took care of some things that we have been putting off. We had a parent teacher conference, (it seems my son is one of the best kids in his class and the teachers had no complaints about him, could it be that being there when he gets home and not putting him in daycare could be a good thing?) When we left the parent teacher conference our car, like the WSJ called it, "rusty, gray Ford Tempo" would not start. My son, my wife, and me got our exercise for the day by walking almost 2 miles back to our apartment to get our other crappy car (that needs brakes, badly) so that we could go to AutoZone to buy a new positive battery cable to get the first crappy car running again. I replaced the battery cable--which did not take me long because I used to be a car audio installer extraordinaire--and we headed to my parents house to pick up our 3 year old.
We spent the rest of the night watching 3 movies we rented; Over The Hedge, The Omen, and The Proposition. Over The Hedge was great, The Omen was better than the original, and The Proposition was one of the best movies I have seen this year. We are going to watch The Break-up tonight, I like Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston let's hope it is a good movie also.
I will be posting more soon. I have been trying to learn WordPress, so I can get the new Passionate America up and running. I hope to have the new site up and running by Sunday. I will be on the radio today at 4pm Central Time. Click here to listen live to The Passionate America Show at 4pm (CST).
How a Blogger Put Himself in the Middle Of Mark Foley Story
Well that is the title of the story in The Wall Street Journal today. Here is the link,
"How a Blogger Put Himself in the Middle Of Mark Foley Story"
Ms Underestimated is also mentioned in the story as well as Matt Drudge.
I'm headed to Barnes and Nobel to get a copy of The Wall Street Journal. I'll post more later.
Update: Here is a link to the the story about Jordan Edmund that started it all, Meet Jordan Edmund One Mark Foley Instant Messanger
Texas Fred thinks "Big Brother" could be watching us. Read for yourself, If you dare! Is ‘Big Brother’ REALLY watching??
Passionate America's favorite game show, Name that Nut.
(Brought to you by Preparation H®, if you have a pain in your ass, put an end to your suffering with Preparation H®)
Who is this nut?
Can you name that nut?
spacemonkey from IMAO interviewed me by instant message the other day and I have been a little slow in putting up the link to it. Here is an excerpt, lol,
Wild Bill: Oh and one last thing, you are not gonna save this IM and let a lib get it so they can use it against me before an election are you?IMAO is my favorite comedy blog if you have not been there check it out.
Carrie Coppernoll has a story in The Oklahoman where she mentions me today, "Page scandal raises issues still unresolved" (you might have to register to see the story, it is free). Here is the excerpt where she talks about me:
Foley, 52, resigned his U.S. House seat after details were revealed about his explicit conversations with former male pages. Edmund's name was dug up by sleuthing blogger William Kerr of Moore. (More discussion of Kerr in a future column.)I just called Carrie Coppernoll and she will call me later today to talk about her upcoming story.
|***Updates at the bottom***|
The Enid News and Eagle reports that,
"FBI special agents will question a former congressional page today in Oklahoma City at an undisclosed location about the recent sex scandal, said Enid attorney Stephen Jones, who is representing the man." (read more)I just called The Enid News and Eagle and left a message in Scott Fitzgerald's voice mail.
Stephen Jones was quoted by the newspaper as saying,
“They (FBI) will question Jordan Edmund concerning his knowledge, if any, about former congressman Mark Foley,”Why would the FBI question Mr. Edmund if he did not have any information?
And once again I am described as
"an Oklahoma-based Internet blogger who linked a screen name associated with Edmund that was inadvertently published by “ABC News.”Jones reports page will be questioned today about Foley
Update: The Oklahoman has more, Ex-page meets with FBI
Update #2: I talked to someone at The Oklahoman and decided to pull the picture of Edmunds they took today from my website for now. They have added video to the with the story.
Sean Gleeson has been investigating and has uncovered instant messages between former Rep. and current scumbag Mark Foley.
Another Foley victim exposed by Oklahoma blogger
Sean Gleeson I condemn you for revealing this possible underage robot victim's identity. Have you no shame?
Bill G sent me a link to the YouTube video below. Did John Kerry threaten the President? You be the judge. (about 1 min into the video)
I received this email and I thought I would share it with my readers. Email me and let me know what you think.
I don’t believe Jordan Edmonds deserves sympathy over being ousted he is a self described political whore, a huge ass-hole, who likes making fun of stupid people and fat/stupid people at the gym.
Thank you very much for your email
Ms Underestimated just emailed me. The subject line of her email was, Video of Edmund's attorney on TV threatening Bill
In the video the attorney (he calls me the blogger so I guess it is ok if I call him the attorney) says that his client's life has been turned upside down because of the controversy swirling around former Rep. Mark Foley. The video also says, "That's because Jordan Edmund has been identified in published reports as one of the former pages who allegedly got explicit emails and instant messages from the Florida Republican." I never said Jordan Edmund got emails from Mark Foley. So did he get emails too?
The attorney goes on to say that he and his client have had some physical threats made against them. Really? Want to check my emails and the comments on my blog Mr. attorney?
During the AP video they talk about how ABC NEWS published the screen name and show and email on the screen. Hello, I found the screen name in an instant message from ABC NEWS website not an email. Does the AP not know the difference between emails and instant messages or are they trying the confuse the two on purpose?
The attorney also says they are investigating to see if there is any civil liability by ABC NEWS or the blogger (that's me Wild Bill). So it looks like he might still be looking to file charges against me. I wish I did not have to ask but I could use all of the help I can get with this.
Ways you can help me:
Thanks to everyone that has already donated and has sent emails.
America is making a difference in Iraq
Sonnabend from Voice of the Pacific sent me a link to the video below.
This is why we are in Iraq. Ask yourself, "Why does the main stream media show all the bad things in Iraq and not show the good things?" Show this video to everyone you know. We are in Iraq for the right reasons and we have to complete our mission.
And Now a Message From Kim Jon Il
You pafetic foors. I now have nucrear weapons. How you feer now? You thought you courd terr us North Koreans what to do. Seriousry, did you think we wourd cave into your freats? You have one day to stop dat fucr'in Team America movie from every being prayed again. Arso, how dare Wird Birr rerease the name of the 21 year ord guy!
The Passionate America investigative team has uncovered that North Korea purchased the instructions for building the nuclear weapon from the now infamous blogger that we will not name because we want to take credit for his work, here is a link to the information we have uncovered. How to build a NUKE!
Additional more reliable information can be found here, here, here.
Eric gets it. Then why is it that so many of the other big named blogs don't get it. Jordan Edmunds identity was information Ms. Underestimated, me Wild Bill, and the all of the people we let view the evidence we had before we publish the story believed had to get out so that the facts could be uncovered. Ms. Underestimated and I got the ball rolling on this story.
I have a question for the bloggers that still refuse to give us credit. Why do you still blog about Foleygate when you cannot even be honest with your readers enough to let them know if it was not for two hard working bloggers (Ms. Underestimated and me, Wild Bill) the story would not have advanced beyond some of the lies. Once we released Jordan Edmund's identity, bloggers and media from around the world had an opportunity to search out the truth and report it.
Oh I almost forgot I have to make sure I say Foley is a scumbag (or we will be accused of defending him) and I did not give a crap about party affiliation in this case, our release of OUR STORY was about the truth. I did not do this for fame and fortune although it might come to that. I will no longer sit by while others report on this story and pretend that they have higher morals and that that gives them right to not credit our hard work. If I am sued because of this case it will effect every blogger's 1st Amendment rights and every media organizations rights as well. If I am successfully sued it will set legal precedence and open the door for each and every blogger and news organization that published Jordan Edmund's identity to be sued. You may not agree with what we did although someday I believe you will, at least agree that we have the 1st Amendment Right to freedom of speech. If we cannot all agree on that issue then we will all surly lose.
Jeff Gannon has been doing his research and has a lot of the same questions I have about the Jordan Edmund / Foleygate scandal. Foleygate Beginning To Look Like Rathergate
There are so many questions that need answers. Keep up the good work Mr. Gannon.
I recieved this email and thought I would share it with you:
Dear Mr. Kerr,
And this was my response:
Nice idea, but you are wrong, I suspect that you have a big problem with the fact that I said I do not want to put my kids in daycare. If you would like to meet me in person I will meet you anytime you would like and sit down and talk to you and answer any questions you might have. I could take the time to point out your errors in judgment in the email but it would not convince you of who I am. Please email me back and we can arrange a meeting at your connivance.
***Update I made a spelling mistake in the title if you have linked to this post you will have to correct your link. Sorry for any inconvenience.***
I have been thinking about changing my nickname to "The Blogger" because it seems that a lot of big bloggers out there just refuse to call me by my real name William Kerr, my nickname Wild Bill, and refuse to link to my blog http://passionateamerica.blogspot.com/ because it seems I have cooties.
You might not agree with what I did but you can show a little class and a small bit of respect and at least let your readers come to my blog to make up their own minds instead of telling them what to think. I have been a fan of many of the sites that think I am beneath them. I have respect for each of you, whether you criticize what I did or not, it is in very bad taste to talk about someone's work and not provide a link to that work.
Much of the MSM has done the same thing. Bloggers deserve credit also if you are talking about or referencing their work. It is the right thing to do.

I had to respond to Michelle Malkin's wild accusations about me from this post. I followed a link on that post over to Hot Air to this post. I had to respond, I have no idea why Michelle has what seems to be a grudge against me, but there is no way with what I have been through over the last week that I am going to let her get away what I consider a hit piece against me. Below is what I wrote:
I tried to have a spine and stand up for what was right and Michelle and many other conservative bloggers threw me under the bus.
Now Michelle Malkin, say my name Wild Bill of Passionate America and try and remember that I am the guy that likes to back up my facts with screenshots just incase someone decides to say I made up my evidence. Below are the screenshots of my comment posted at Hot Air on October 8, 2006 at 2:47 AM on this post.
I have received so much support over the last few days, everyone please email Michelle Malkin at writemalkin-at-gmail-dot-com and let her know that it would be a smart move on her part to respond to me and give a real reason why she did what she did. Michelle like I said before I respect you I just believe something other than the truth was influencing your decision. I came clean to the world, can you come clean with me?
Update: Still no response for Michelle Malkin, Common Sense Junction understands my side and takes Michelle to task in this post, A Potpourri Of DoubleSpeak.
Update #2: My friend Terry Dillard comes to my aid, Standing Up for Wild Bill. Thank you Terry.
Update #3: More support coming from Big Dog and Spree, go over to their sites and read what they had to say.
