I do not need to tell you this past week was hectic and full of all sorts of information — some true and much NOT true. It’s been insane to try to wade through it all and determine which is which. I think we have it.
Let’s catch up on the week’s most important items, some of which you certainly missed. We watch 24/7 for you. We’ll give you a sentence or two in each bullet point that describes the contents of a full story. If you want more details, just click on the link at the end of those two sentences. It takes you to the complete story to get all the facts you need.
Thanks for sharing our Bullet Points. Have a great weekend!
Dominion Voting Systems is a company with a bullseye on their back. They’re the company that provides election processing for 30 of the 50 U.S.states. They are also caught in the furor of the claims of rampant voter fraud. Friday morning their leadership was to appear before the Pennsylvania Legislature to answer questions. But without notice, they simply did not show up. Rather than give you a bullet-point, take a look at this video of a member of the Pennsylvania legislature explaining followed by a graphic explanation of the Dominion irregularities in voting:
As crazy as is the determination of winners from the November 3rd election, the state of Pennsylvania takes the cake. Pennsylvania is infamous for voter fraud in every election all the way back to the turn of the century: the PREVIOUS century! And it’s not getting better. While everyone is frantic to get to the actual vote count in Pennsylvania, the state Legislature has voted to do a complete vote audit. For complete details, click on this link:
This election just solidifies the concerns of millions of Americans that our Media have lost total touch with the Americans to whom they speak. There are two questions they must answer before 2022: “How did the Media get it so wrong?” and the second question, “How did Donald Trump do so good!” For complete details, click on this link:
If Republicans think the November 3rd election was a dog fight for the ages, they haven’t seen anything yet. Two United States Senate seats are at stake in a Georgia runoff election, and with it the majority control of the Senate. The GOP MUST win those to cement their Senate control. A loss means pretty much every conservative ideal will be tossed to the trash-heap of politics. For complete details, click on this link:
Dr. Redenfield who runs the CDC plainly stated this past week we should NOT close schools: our children need the social interactions and are 99.9% certain to NOT become infected with COVID-19. Dr. Anthony Fauci echoes REdenfield’s sentiment. So if Democrats adhere to their political mantra for ten months: “Listen to the Science,” why are we closing schools anyway?

With what seems to be a strong possibility — a “blue” White House — the cries for canceling student debt are deafening and will only grow louder. But is canceling student debt a good idea? Will it really help students from low-income families? Does doing so make sense? For answers to these questions and complete details, click on this link:
Though we’re told the Georgia vote recount is complete, do we really know how the vote in the state actually came out? In fact, we may never know for certain. And one election official has been fired for multiple cases where he seemed to forget about several thousand votes that just happened to NOT be counted. Are there more still out there? For complete details, click on this link:
Jeff Zucker showed the news world how to build a totally partisan anti-conservative news network. Do you know how difficult that must be? One would necessarily throw out all journalistic integrity and coach everyone at the network to adopt the fundamental principle used in every interview and every story: demean the other side. Zucker runs CNN and apparently, he’s on his way out. For complete details, click on this link:
Evangelist Kenneth Copeland has found himself in a bit of a pickle. Apparently, a Russian hacking group has found their way into Copeland’s ministry’s computer network and are threatening to wreak havoc on his ministry. Ransomware in computer systems around the world has cost numerous companies hundreds of millions of dollars. For complete details, click on this link:
Did you know Joe Biden has now officially become the oldest person in U.S. history to be waiting for election results to confirm if he will be the next president? That sounds odd, especially with the election results still on hold. But Joe turned 78 on Friday and now holds that title by himself. (Does he even know that?) For complete details, click on this link:
It is uncontroverted that millions of American private citizens own firearms. It is also not logically refuted that there are multiple militia far-right groups that are not happy at the possibility of a Biden presidency and may take to arms if that happens. Though that is a scary thought, it is a reality. For complete details, click on this link:
Eleven days since the election. Still, no finality in “real” vote counts — “real votes” being “legal” votes. We are confident there were many vote changes, vote deletions, corrupt and illegal votes cast, and it goes on and on. We’ll know for sure, but we just don’t know when.
To that end, we’ve at TruthNewsNetwork been concentrating almost entirely on election results and obtaining information for you this past week. What did we miss in the way of other important stuff? What did YOU miss? Let’s take a look back at the top ten stories of the week you may have missed. We’ll give you a bullet point with a few sentences describing such a story. If you already know about it, you can just click on the next bullet point. Or, if you want complete details, click on the link at the end of those sentences and go right to a detailed story. It’s the best way to start your Saturday by catching up on any big things you missed. Let’s get started!
Saturday Bullet Points
We all know that there are many issues in the voting that took place on November 3rd. We know that Pennsylvania is at the heart of what appears to be the biggest problem state in this whole thing. According to one Pennsylvania election official, President Trump has a sure-fire case to take to the U.S. Supreme Court if it goes that far. For complete details, click on this link:
We at TruthNewsNetwork noticed a marked swing to the Left in reporting at FOX News over a year ago. They changed “news contributors” and replaced those who seemed in the middle politically; they made it clear in their news division they were “not in the tank” for President Trump, and even had some former non-partisan news commentators began to make drastic “left turns.” With the election, it’s gotten much worse! They seem to feel their viewers either are too stupid to catch the changes, or they just don’t care. They may be in BIG trouble. For complete details, click on this link:
It is rare that a U.S. Supreme Court Justice publicly weighs in on a hot political topic. The Supreme Court rarely involves itself in political issues. Those are things to be handled politically, not in the justice system. Justice Samuel Alito may have broken tradition when he spoke this past week about how Americans’ freedoms seem to be infringed by some of the actions taken by political leaders during COVID-19 matters. For complete details of what he had to say, click on this link:
Do you know and understand the differences between communism, socialism, and capitalism? This election indicates that a slew of Americans certainly do NOT understand the differences. If they did, they certainly would have fled from those first two political forms. No one on Earth with any knowledge of communism and socialism would wish to be a part of such a system. Maybe that’s the problem: they don’t know. Let’s take a look at what’s going on. For complete details, click on this link:
Major League Baseball is a sport exclusively for women, right? It always has been. But now, changes are happening in MLB. The Florida Marlins reached out and signed and announced a new General Manager that not only is female, but she is also the first East Asian person to be a Major League Baseball team General Manager. For complete details, click on this link:
It’s the holiday season! Thanksgiving is coming up this week, and Christmas just a month away. Have you finished shopping? Have you even started shopping? There’s probably a “gamer” on your list: someone who loves to play video games. The staple of the industry is Play Station Five. It hit this market selling for about $500 retail. But, if you want one for THIS Christmas, get ready to pay a little bit more. For complete details, click on this link:
The Gulf Coast has been rocked with hurricanes this year: a record season. But they do not have an exclusive on bad weather. Hot and dry conditions have devastated California with forest fires in the dry and hot season. But now, an earthquake is a big problem for not just California, but for Nevada as well. For complete details, click on this link:
Have you ever heard of “Tristan da Cunha?” It’s an island whose people have jumped out in the field of animal protection. It’s 245 permanent residents have created a marine zone to offer protection to a host of animal life: different kinds of animals and other species. It calls itself “The most remote island on Earth.” For complete details, click on this link:
We knew it was coming. With the recent spike in COVID-19 cases around the nation, lockdowns are looming. Though the U.S. death rate for COVID-19 patients continues to decline, the numbers of cases continue to climb. It has many people afraid. And schools are naturally very costly. It’s’ so concerning, one school system has already determined to next week shut down in-person schooling. For complete details, click on this link:
It appears that the great relation President Trump developed with China’s leader has not developed into a capitulation of nuclear proliferation in that country. Secret pictures have revealed the Chinese government is aggressively ramping up its nuclear weapons process at a staggering rate. For complete details, click on this link:
It’s the last day of the first week of November. Not too much happened this week in the U.S. Ha! But there were a few other items that seemed to have been lost in the fray. So why don’t we just put the election chaos to the side and spend a bit of time catching up on some other important things that are out there — not saying at all the election and all that’s part of it should not dominate our thoughts.
If you are just joining us in this Saturday event, here’s how it works:
Of the important stories we found that many missed, we will give you a few sentences describing each. If you want more details simply click on the link at the end and go to the full story to get all the information. It’s simple. What better way to start the weekend than by eating a bagel with a hot cup of java in hand while catching up on the important things from the week. Enjoy!
Potential fraud in voting in the election on Tuesday is still a dangerous and real possibility. President Trump and the Department of Justice have launched a full investigation on numerous fronts that include civil and, apparently, possible federal action. In fact, the federal attorney in Utah announced Friday he’s taking a leave of absence to join the forces to investigate numerous reports of voter fraud in several states. For complete details, click on this link:
I like this guy: Victor David Hanson. When he gives his opinions on various news outlets, he’s always cool, calm, deliberate, and factual. On Friday, he confronted the craziness that has erupted and intensified through the last four years in America’s Mainstream Media. Would like to get a “cool, calm, deliberate, and factual” perspective instead of the raving? For complete details, click on this link:
Much has been made of the automatic support by African American and Latino voters of Democrat candidates during my lifetime. (I’m 67) It was understood (and confirmed by Democrats often) that members of the minority communities are “supposed” to support Democrat candidates because Democrats care for them — Republicans don’t. It came as a shock to D.C. Democrat Party Leaders when during the past four years, members of the minority communities that include multiple movie stars, sports heroes, and music entertainers saw that Donald Trump was a president who not only committed to minorities while campaigning, when elected he put considerable effort and dramatic improvements in place for minority members just as he promised! That was a change and no doubt caused the switches. How big a change did it cause in election results? For complete details, click on this link:
It’s sad but true. Police on Friday had to rush to an area near the site of vote counting in Philadelphia. Why? A bomb threat. Isn’t it abhorrent that in our nation today there are those who resort to such tactics to sometimes express anger, sometimes just for a thrill, and sometimes to slaughter a bunch of people? For complete details, click on this link:
It was only a matter of time. We knew that Democrats would probably hold the majority in the House. We were shocked that, at least so far, NO Republican House member has lost a seat! Further, twelve Republicans flipped House seats from blue to red. We thought the cries for Speaker Pelosi’s crown would not begin until Christmas. But they have already started! For complete details, click on this link:
We haven’t heard much about any boost of women to Congress, have we? A bunch of Republican women won House seats! How many and who were they? For complete details, click on this link:
Do you yet have one of those Ring camera/floodlights in place? We got ours’ about three years ago. It’s uncanny! We can be in another country and via the internet see who is coming to our front door and even speak to them via our Ring system. Well, Mississippi police are finding there may be a good and realistic way to lasso Ring to help them expand their surveillance operations. For complete details, click on this link:
We all saw and heard the threats by numerous Hollywood elites to leave the U.S. if Donald Trump won the presidency in 2016. He won, and, to my knowledge not a single one moved away. Interest in this election has sparked not just threats this time, but people actually making plans to do so. But everyone should really investigate all the intrinsic pieces of leaving the U.S. permanently. For complete details, click on this link:
In the midst of all the politics, don’t forget it’s about to get cold in the U.S. It does that every winter! But U.S. cold weather is not confined to the months of December, January, and February: it’s pretty cold already in Chicken, Alaska. Try 41 degrees BELOW ZERO! For complete details, click on this link:
OMG! Shark Week is over, isn’t it? Well, one Great White shark didn’t get the message. “Maybe he’s been watching reruns and assumed they were live shows.” That monstrous Great White has been spotted tooling the shallows off Key Largo, FL. Do you think that has kept a few swimmers and jet ski jockeys on solid ground? For complete details, click on this link:
Lots of folks really like New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She is young, attractive, very fluent in at least two languages, and has become an American icon of Socialism. It was expected that a Biden election would move our country further to the Left very quickly. But, it appears that AOC and “The Gang” are going to have a real uphill battle after the election results. For complete details, click on this link:
The uncertainty that surrounds every aspect of COVID-19 has really changed the lives of every American, and not just Americans, every person on Earth. I’ve heard many important questions asked about elements of the disease, its effects, and how to best treat it. I’ve heard SOME answers, but not many. But now there’s a new question: “Can COVID-19 be sexually transmitted?” I don’t know about you, but that’s probably something that should be considered — except for one thing: I doubt many people REALLY sick with COVID-19 are too keen on having sex! For complete details, click on this link:
Yes, it’s Saturday: three days until “Election 2020!” There is no doubt there have been a bunch of important things happening. All of those “important things” ran their course in total disregard of your busy schedule. And you probably missed one or two…or maybe three.
We’re here to make sure you get ALL the information you need to stay on top of these critical American happenings. And in today’s bullet points, you’ll see. Read the sentence or two that describes each story. If you want to dive-in for details, click on the link, and it’ll take you directly to the story. If you already know about it or don’t want details, just skip to the next Bullet Point.
Enjoy your weekend! And, of course, make sure you vote on Tuesday if you haven’t already done so.
Did you know that America’s media is at war with at least half of the country? It’s no secret that the mainstream media in the U.S. have left the ranks of the “real” journalists with whom they formerly stood side-by-side and have become little more than a political arm of the Democrat Party. For complete details, click on this link:
It’s common knowledge that President Trump has been supportive of America’s law enforcement community. In the wake of the lawlessness that swept the nation in tandem with COVID-19, many law enforcement officials have been injured in mostly Democrat-controlled cities while trying to stop protestors-turned-rioters from harming others, looting stores, and destroying public and private property. Did you know that, also, more than 600 members of the brutal MS-13 gang have been taken off the streets? For complete details, click on this link:
Have you heard of the political scientist Helmut Norpoth? He has created a political projection model that has correctly predicted 25 of the 27 times used predicted actual election results. Based on his model, President Trump has a better than 80% chance of receiving 362 electoral votes! He needs only 270 to win. For complete details, click on this link:
There’s another group that, despite Joe Biden’s consistent leads in the polls, predicts that Trump WILL defeat Joe Biden for four more years as president. Trafalgar Group has shown consistently in their model that President Trump’s supporters are significantly under-represented in the polling models that have, from the beginning, showed Biden leading. For complete details, click on this link:
Many Americans and government officials are concerned about violence in our streets in the wake of the presidential election results regardless of who wins. Some in Colorado are so concerned they have created a “Survivalist Camp” to accommodate members at a hidden location in Southern Colorado to weather the storm of violence they are confident will come. They even fear a civil war! For complete details, click on this link:
What in American life is more sacred than turkey at Thanksgiving dinner? But this year, the COVID-19 pandemic has many Americans opting NOT to serve turkey and may not even have others over in a traditional Thanksgiving event. Turkey farmers are anxious. Why is that? For complete details, click on this link:
I was in San Francisco in late December just before COVID-19 attacked us. I gorged on a fantastic lobster and clam chowder at Pier 39. SFC was roaring. But now, hardly anyone hits Fisherman’s Wharf and the Piers at all. Downtown has become a ghost town. For complete details, click on this link:
Do you remember the last time a Republican won the state of Minnesota in a presidential election? Richard Nixon won the state in his 1972 race for the White House! Minnesota has been a Democrat Party stronghold for a long, long time. But President Trump has marked Minnesota as a state he not only wants to win this year but feels strongly that he CAN win. For complete details, click on this link:
It’s virtually impossible for a victory for any presidential candidate without winning the state of Florida. And it’s tough to win Florida without a win in Miami-Dade County. The population is so large in this county that winning it makes up for losses in other parts of the state. Though Trump won Florida in 2016, Biden felt he could flip the state by carrying the heavily-populated minority Miami-Dade county this year. But Biden staff members are frantically trying to get Democrats to turnout and fear that an impending low voter turnout will cost them the entire state. For complete details, click on this link:
We’ve all watched and listened to Joe Biden, and also former President Barack Obama made several outlandish claims on the campaign trail this election season. Both have claimed continuously that Donald Trump’s economy is NOT his economy, but rather just a continuation of THEIR economy. But Biden and Obama fail to look at facts — facts that proved before the pandemic, Trump’s economy was one of the greatest in American history. For complete details, click on this link:
With just a few days until the election, Google is still seeing “How can I change my vote?” top the list of Google searches. Eighty-four million people have already voted early as of late Friday afternoon. The Google search shows a bunch of folks who are second-guessing their vote and want to make changes. Can they? For complete details, click on this link:
This story about corruption uncovered from Hunter Biden’s MacBook Pro has proven to be actual details from Hunter’s originated and received emails and texts. Numerous sources have confirmed their authenticity, and the FBI has acknowledged they have been investigating Hunter since 2019 for alleged criminal money laundering. Though Vice President Biden, when asked about the scandal, has vehemently claimed it’s only a smear campaign at the last minute to hurt his campaign for President, Joe still has NOT stated the text, emails, and pictures that collectively number in the tens of thousands are NOT true! What’s going to happen? For complete details, click on this link:
What a week! Democrat Candidate Biden headed to the “Biden Bunker” after a campaign appearance on Monday and did not come out until the Thursday debate. Meanwhile, the president did at least two rallies each day in cities across the country. While all this final presidential debate hoopla unfolded, life for other Americans just stayed the way it always is: busy, complicated, and full of unanswered questions. Would we know it any other way?
Of course, there were many important things that happened across the globe, in the U.S., and maybe even in your city that you may have missed. We keep a watch for all of these important events and, each Saturday, we bring those to you in our “Bullet Points.” It’s a simple feature to use:
We give you a few sentences in each bullet point that describes the content of one of these stories. If those references tickle your fancy and you want details, click on the whispy blue arrow-link for more. It takes you to a complete story with all the information. It’s that simple. If you’ve already read the story or don’t care for details, simply skip to the next bullet point. It’s an easy and quick way to make sure you missed none of the important stuff while you worked your tail off at the office, in sales or service work, or even staying at home and working your tail off as a stay-at-home Mom or Dad. Let’s get going with today’s “Bullet Points!”
Political polls are all over the spectrum! There are so many questions one must ask about the results given in this presidential race: Who’s ahead, who are those polled, what are their political affiliations, what kind of poll are these results from? It’s important to know all of these elements of polling. But, even with that, you never really know for certain how accurate is each poll. One of the most credible of the polling services each political cycle is Rasmussen. Friday, Rasmussen released their poll detail current probabilities for our election in less than two weeks. For complete details, click on this link:
When it comes to COVID-19, few are the answers to questions about what we should or should not do in living our lives in “COVID Land.” And those answers are critical — especially when they deal with our students, school faculty members, school staff, and teachers. The uncertainty daily seeds fear into the hearts of minds of all those involved in our education system and even for those who are NOT “in” the system but are parents or other family members of those involved in school settings. What are the realities of the dangers they may face? For complete details, click on this link:
Did you know that this weekend is week 7 of the NFL season? It’s hard enough to believe the NFL finally got started playing this year. But it’s even harder to believe that going into this week, there are still 5 teams that are undefeated! Who are they, who do they each play, and what are the predicted outcomes? For complete details, click on this link:
Were you one of the millions of Americans who tuned in to watch former Vice President Biden and President Trump go at it in the final presidential debate last night? If you were, you saw a toned-down president and a ramped-up challenger go head-to-head. The first debate was extremely divisive and confrontational with very limited results from either candidate. Thursday night’s debate was quite different. But there were some moments of clear victory that were obvious in the debate and some conclusions that will certainly make a difference in the minds of numerous voters. For complete details, click on this link:
Every presidential election cycle there seems to be an “October Surprise” — some outlandish bit of information dumped into the American news marketplace that is negative for one candidate which usually is a benefit to the other candidate. Maybe the Biden Family Corruption scandal was this election cycle’s “October Surprise.” And some of those emails discovered on a discarded laptop of Joe Biden’s son that are reportedly very ugly and include some damning information about Hunter Biden, Jim Biden who is the former vice president’s brother, and Joe Biden himself. We were informed Friday night that those emails are about to be released to the American people. For complete details, click on this link:
It is safe to say that President Trump’s supporters are very loyal and very demonstrative in not only supporting Mr. Trump but letting everyone around them know just how demonstrative they feel! The President, besides being very thankful for their support, oozes his personal affection for them and their support. And he talks about that! For complete details, click on this link:
It is fairly certain that Amy Coney Barrett is about to be confirmed by the U.S. Senate to be the next Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. Her confirmation process hearings ended last week and were exhaustive and flooded with partisan controversy. Seldom in SCOTUS justice hearings in our past have Senators adopted political party policies in their determination of the qualification of a nominee to serve in that capacity. But that is NOT the case in 2020. For complete details, click on this link:
Halloween is coming up next week! It’s going to be a different and probably less festive holiday for the kids because of COVID-19. But there will be some other drastic occurrences this Halloween that have nothing to do with candy, costumes, or going door to door. An international group of witches have joined forces to cast spells on Donald Trump in a mass effort to impact negatively in his election results. These witches really want Mr. Trump out of the White House! For complete details, click on this link:
2020 has sadly seen horrendous rioting and looting on the streets of many of America’s largest cities. People are demonstrating and lashing out at a plethora of things happening in our government which they detest and so they are lashing out in a very militant fashion in some cases. For those reasons, many Americans are stocking up on “all things military” to prepare for what just might be more rioting in our city streets regardless of who wins the November 3rd presidential election. For complete details, click on this link:
Maybe you were too busy this week to hear that the Pope issued a statement endorsing same-sex unions. His proclamation was not well-received by many Catholics because Catholicism has forever resisted recognizing the unions of homosexual partners. Those rejecting the Pope’s edict encompasses even many Catholic Cardinals! For complete details, click on this link:
After a politically bloviated week, you can bet you missed something that happened that because of the deafening noises of Supreme Court Justice confirmation hearings, two presidential town halls, the uproar over 40,000 Hunter Biden emails that allege possible Biden Family corruption, you just didn’t see or hear. We have the top ten such important stories you may have missed.
Take a look at the first several sentences of each bullet point. They give you a synopsis of one such story. If you want more details, click on the link at the end of the point that takes you to such a story. If you’ve already familiarized yourself with the story just move to the next bullet point.
Enjoy your weekend! Thanks for being part of the TruthNewsNetwork family.
Most of us are familiar with the practice of euthanasia and its commonality in some European countries. But this was unexpected: authorities in the Netherlands are pushing to allow euthanasia by medical experts for children under the age of 12! Their justification: some children that young in their country are critically ill, suffering horribly, and are certain to die in a short time anyway. For complete details, click on this link:
Everyone knows that Florida has become not just an election swing-state, but, based on population, is the largest such state. It is critical for any presidential candidate to win an election MUST carry Florida. This time around, Joe Biden has remained in a “safe” lead in the state, primarily because of the large Latino voter base. But, believe it or not, as of Friday, Biden and Trump are tied. For complete details, click on this link:
This latest negative information about the younger son of Joe Biden, Hunter, is not a huge surprise to many longtime Joe Biden staffers and close associates. In fact, getting jobs for Hunter after he finished college was known to be a requirement “if” you were a supporter of then-Senator Joe Biden. And though we hear very little about any government investigations into Hunter’s alleged wrongdoing, several Congressional committees have been investigated the younger Biden. For complete details, click on this link:
Because of the confirmation hearing for Jude Amy Coney Barrett, Obamacare has been discussed non-stop this past week. Senators are horrified that her vote might be the one to terminate the ACA. A lawyer who is handling the case at the SCOTUS in a few weeks advises Congress to not wait for the Court’s results, but get busy with a replacement healthcare plan for Americans. For complete details, click on this link:
Most Americans are miffed at social media giant Twitter’s refusal to slap a “manipulated video” warning sign on a Biden Campaign video that is obviously heavily edited. The resulting video was released to misquote the President by pulling bits of multiple speeches together to create a false ad to make him look bad. For complete details, click on this link:
Have you heard of “The People’s Charter?” It’s a manifesto that George Soros says will be implemented in the U.S. in a Biden presidency. It includes extending $600 weekly unemployment insurance, a national minimum wage of $15 per hour, free and universal health care, defunding the police, and canceling all student debt. But there’s more! For complete details, click on this link:
“The Biden Family Corruption” scandal that was revealed to the nation on October 14th has sucked much of the news coverage away from normal stories — UNLESS you’re talking about Mainstream Media outlets. It’s creepy that NONE of the social media giants are even the big newspapers nor Leftist television news networks are covering it at all. Journalists of all ilks are crying against the obvious partisanship being flaunted by these organizations with no regard for journalistic integrity or honesty. One left-leaning writer is literally aghast at the hypocrisy. For complete details, click on this link:
Think we have violence in our city streets today? Imagine being a school teacher in France and having a young man come after you with a gun just because you showed cartoon pictures of the Prophet Mohammed. It happened, and this teacher lost his head for doing so! For complete details, click on this link:
Being a policeman on the streets in many of the largest American cities is beyond just dangerous: it has become life-threatening. No cop has assurance when donning that uniform and leaving for work every day he or she will come home after that shift. In Baltimore, it was a security guard protecting a ballot box that cost him his life. For complete details, click on this link:
Are you petrified each year to complete your tax returns that there may be something included that will initiate an IRS audit? If you are, you are one of the millions who feel the same way — not because you’ve done something wrong but just made a mistake. That’s NOT the case for one Texas billionaire who, the IRS says, committed the greatest tax fraud that cost $2 billion. For complete details, click on this link:

Saturday Bullet Points
Hurting Americans are desperate for financial relief in the form of additional COVID-19 stimulus. Congress has continued bickering of the size of a “necessary” stimulus program: Democrats want $2.2 trillion-plus, Republicans agreed to about $1.7 trillion, maintaining that the dollars included in the House bill for bailouts for Democrat-controlled cities and states are unacceptable. Will there be an agreed-to plan? President Trump has weighed in on the subject. For complete details, click on this link:
The Supreme Court on Thursday evening rejected the Trump administration’s request to reinstate a rule requiring patients to obtain the first pill required to induce a medication abortion at an in-person appointment with their doctor. For complete details, click on this link:
Imagine this: if you vote in the November 3rd election, you must vote on November 3rd to make your vote count. How horrible is such a requirement! That’s a ruling from a federal district court in Wisconsin. For complete details, click on this link:
Can you imagine needing a butt lift, going to a world-renowned surgeon who performs the surgery for it only to be a ”flop” — pun intended. One such patient claims hers’ was so bad she is suing Dr. Dubrow of the series ”Botched” for $5 million! For complete details, click on this link:
Are you sold on the Biden promise to reduce taxes on the American people? If you believe it, you disagree with wealthy Americans who are running for cover. Why?

Much of the U.S. was shocked to hear of Pelosi’s plan to take action using the 25th Amendment to consider the removal of a president when declared physically or mentally unfit to serve.

But Pelosi made it clear on Friday she has another “arrow in her quiver” that she plans to use. For complete details, click on this link:
It’s hard to believe that President Trump has bounced back so quickly from his COVID-19 infection.

Most Americans have found themselves simply worn out by all the important information and subsequent details of handling this new “COVID-19 World.” What’s right; what’s wrong? What should you do; what should you NOT do? Mask or no mask? You don’t want to get it wrong, but, at the same time, you don’t want to waste your time and the times of others in your life by piling on needless responsibilities. Amid all this uncertainty, one state this week just decided to do away with any requirement for folks in the state to wear masks. Their doing so comes to many as a breath of fresh air — no pun intended. Is it the right or wrong decision to do away with the mask mandate? For complete details, click on this link:
By now, all know that President Trump and the First Lady both tested positive for COVID-19. Of course, the Mainstream Media have been having a fun time at the President’s expense. Most Democrats in government have been kind and respectful — especially former Vice President Biden. Why politicize someone’s physical infirmity, right? But MSNBC’s Joy Reid went low — REALLY low in discussing the President’s COVID diagnosis. For complete details, click on this link:
In this caustic political environment in which we find ourselves, it’s probably a natural emotion for many to lash out at the President, saying, “Mr. President, you probably deserve COVID-19 for the way you’ve thumbed your nose at the experts who have cautioned about the lack of social distancing and mask mandates at your rallies. You’re getting what you deserve.” But, thankfully, not all in leadership in the country have gone down the road. Even former Vice President Biden tweeted some very positive remarks and suggestions to all Americans about how we should handle this time and this specific situation.

No matter what the polls have to say about the presidential race, most people sense that President Trump is quickly closing the gap with Mr. Biden in one of the key swing states that both candidates know it is imperative to win to have a shot at the White House: Florida. Why is that? Conventional wisdom has been that Democrats always carry Florida. However, Candidate Trump beat Hillary in Florida in 2016, surprising most everyone. The reason is that Hispanics in South Florida, many of whom either personally or in their families, immigrated from Cuba to Florida. Those hold vivid memories of the horrors of the Castro Socialism in Cuba. They certainly do not want to see Socialism in the U.S. For complete details, click on this link:
In Tuesday night’s debate, the subject of the taxes paid by President Trump was put front and center by Joe Biden. Biden accused the President of only paying $750 in the first two years of his presidency in federal taxes. That was reported in the New York Times just days before the debate. The trouble is, the President paid FAR more than that. He paid several million dollars in advance and had refunds coming. So what’s up with all that? For complete details, click on this link:
We all know that COVID-19 has been terrible on businesses of all kinds nationwide. Some of America’s largest cities have been hit the hardest. Take New York City, for example.

Because of COVID, financial experts in New York say that as much as 50% of such businesses might NOT make it back from COVID. For complete details, click on this link:
Hollywood Entertainment Mogul Harvey Weinstein has been outed by numerous actresses and other female entertainers for having a salacious sexual appetite for young women. And Weinstein has whet that appetite through the years by virtually blackmailing aspiring young Hollywood women into having sex with him for the exchange of opportunities in Hollywood that he can give to them. And now, new charges have been levied at Weinstein that, if proven, could send him to prison for the rest of his life. For complete details, click on this link:
We haven’t heard much from down south in the past year or so. It seems that those massive immigrant troupes from Central America finally figured out that the U.S. is NOT going to open its southern border to any who want to come here — unless they immigrate legally. That lasted for a good while. However, there is currently a caravan of about 2000 Hondurans headed toward the U.S. southern border with plans for nothing less than access for a permanent live in the United States.

COVID-19 has certainly changed the way Americans think. In fact, for those who live in large cities, the idea of moving to some rural community with vast outdoor living opportunities have become so appealing that the wealthy in a place like Manhattan are racing to gobble up expensive real estate in more “suburban” areas such as eastern Long Island. And one place in Colorado is being flooded, not with just people from large cities, but RICH people from large cities who don’t care about the prices charged for exclusive real estate in those areas.

Here we go — buckle down! The 900-pound political gorilla is NOW in the room: Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died. Her death was announced Friday evening, and with it came the expected chaos surrounding the timing of her death.
Today, we will look a bit closer at what is certainly going to happen during the next few weeks.
Here we go!
With Ginsburg’s death, the big question is what will happen now? Will President Trump send his nominee immediately to the Senate or will he bow to political pressure to wait until after the election? NBC News weighed-in as expected:
What will the battle look like regarding all to do with Ginsburg’s replacement? Will Trump push to make this happen before the election? Will Republicans act in sufficient number to confirm a Trump nominee during this election cycle? The Associated Press (AP) takes a look at what might be ahead:
While the leaders of both parties and the President will be forced to take a position on whether to proceed on a replacement on the Supreme Court for Ginsburg before the next administration takes control, there is NO doubt on the position Justice Ginsburg wanted to see happen.

Ginsburg was a champion for women’s rights and fought hard to push gender issues and policies that could help women in every aspect of life. Let’s take a look at her history before and after her confirmation to the Court:
Very few Americans know much about Ruth Bader Ginsburg before her confirmation in 1993 to the Court. She left an extensive and very public life supporting numerous causes. Much of that work escaped public eye because of the shroud of silence regarding Justices. Let’s take a look:
NEWS BULLETIN: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell late Friday evening cleared the air about a nomination to replace Ginsburg happening before this election. For complete details click on this link:
