Bullet Points Saturday June 20, 2020

It certainly was a busy week. It seems that in all the noise of COVID-19, the racial issues that resulted in multiple demonstrations and even some rioting, and the new CHOP in Seattle, we may have missed an important story or two. Let’s take a look at several you may have not seen:

Bullet Points

  • Even though former Vice President Joe Biden has not made but just a few public campaign speeches, his poll numbers keep climbing. In fact, one poll released this week shows Biden has a 16-point lead over President Trump. But something has happened in Florida that has some people questioning that poll.

  • Many states continue to reopen for business, at least in part. But in the rush to get the nation back to Normal, some may be a bit quick pulling the trigger. COVID-19 cases in several states have spiked significantly this last week. For more details, click on this link:
  • COVID-19 resurgence is not just showing up here in the U.S. Other countries are seeing the same things happen at the same time. China reported a large number of new cases this week, but they say it’s a new strain of the virus that originates in Europe. For more details, click on this link:
  • Oklahoma was on of the reddist states in the 2016 election, voting overwhelmingly for Donald Trump. It only makes sense he would choose Tulsa as the site of his first MAGA rally after the national lockdown. Tonight’s Tulsa rally saw requests for more than one million tickets for the BOK Center event that seats just 20,000. But Tulsa is bracing for a huge crowd PLUS much controversy.

  • Some of the biggest news in D.C. is that Trump’s former National Security Advisor John Bolton released snippets of a tell-all book set to be released worldwide this coming Tuesday. With the story of its release came much controversy. It seems that the mandatory process required for all former White House officials who release books after leaving are required by the Department of Justice to make certain their manuscript is cleared to guarantee it contains no classified information. Apparently, Bolton did NOT complete that process and has been sued by the government. A judge in the case is infuriated with Bolton. For more details, click on this link:
  • Californians witnessed a tragedy seldom seen in the U.S. today. An African-American man was found hanged in a tree. His death was ruled a suicide which many are questioning. But, oddly enough, in an unrelated incident, police killed the man’s brother! For more details, click on this link:
  • “To wear masks or not to wear masks:” Should we or should we not? That depends on who you talk to. But if you’re planning on visiting the Florida Keys, you better take one with you and you better wear it, “or else.” What’s the “or else?” For more details, click on this link:
  • There are many things unique about the Windy City, and many of those are not a “good” kind of unique. But one of the scariest new and unique things to Chicago is a brand new strain of COVID-19 that is changing the way residents infected are dealing with it. For more details, click on this link:
  • Do we need to social distance or not, wear a mask or not, take hydroxycloroquine if infected or not? Who knows. It all depends on who you ask. For example, top members of the Trump Administration COVID-19 task force warned against the President’s MAGA rally tonight in Tulsa. Guess which two issued the warning?

  • Elon Musk, the owner of Tesla and Spacex, is threatening to move Tesla’s manufacturing from California and has started a process of selling his private California assets, one of which is a $29 million mansion to a Tech billionaire. For more details click on this link:
