It seems like the week just flew by. But it certainly did not. This past week (just as has every other week the past few months) was chocked full of stories: BIG stories. There were so many that were not just big but important, you probably missed several you needed to know about. Our Bullet Points will take care of that. Read a few descriptive sentences after each Bullet Point. If you want more details simply click on the blue arrow and it will take you directly to a complete story.
Relax, get caught up, and drink that second or third cup of Saturday morning coffee with us!
There’s political anger and then there’s REAL political anger. It’s so vile in Washington that one Democrat lawmaker took the time to search the social media accounts of her GOP counterparts who questioned the results of the November 3rd election. And she’s releasing them in an effort to discredit them, possibly justify their removal from Congress, or even see criminal actions for their complicity in the insurgence!

The U.S. Supreme Court has sure been busy the past few weeks. And today they are reviewing a case that may impact the U.S. voting system for years to come. In an Arizona case, two critical voting issues are being decided. Either or both could change everything. For complete details, click on this link:
The historical number of Executive Orders a president has made early in their administration was eclipsed in the first few days by President Joe Biden. One of his acts forces female athletes to participate in competition against transgenders who are biological males who identify as female. His action has set the nation on fire. Mississippi’s governor is about to sign a bill that mandates this action CANNOT happen in his state. For complete details, click on this link:
Texas Governor Greg Abbott has certainly been in the news of late. The latest conversation about the governor is regarding his commitment to support a pending bill that will prevent social media platforms from censoring conservative posting. And it’s getting nasty! For complete details, click on this link:
It’s been uncanny to watch as the uncertainty of all-things COVID-19 instigated massive lockdowns across the nation. Several states have rebelled against these state lockdown orders. But California has remained solid in their lockdown commitment: until Friday. California is going to allow Major League Baseball AND DisneyLand to reopen! For complete details, click on this link:
We all know there was NO voting irregularities in the November election, right? No so according to a case in a Mississippi court. A judge has ordered a new election in one local race in which it was discovered 79% of absentee ballots were invalid. For complete details, click on this link:
In the $1.9 Trillion COVID-19 bill that is now in the Senate for debate, a House ruling by a parliamentarian prevents a $15 per hour federal minimum wage to be included. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) filed a separate bill to make the minimum wage change. It failed! And Dems were involved. For complete details, click on this link:
President Biden while campaigning made it clear his plans were to reopen the southern border to illegal immigrants again if he was elected. He was elected, and he HAS opened the border. In doing so, his actions have created a border crisis in just a few weeks. Former President Trump on Friday blasted Biden for his actions calling it a “tsunami.” For complete details, click on this link:
This next point is a shocker. CA Representative Eric Swalwell is known for his hatred for the former president. But what he did this past week is mind-boggling! Swalwell has filed a lawsuit against Mr. Trump for Trump’s alleged responsibility in all of the actions of those who stormed the Capitol on January 6th. For complete details, click on this link:
Millions of Americans have watched the actions of NY Governor Andrew Cuomo being released confirming his purposeful hiding of COVID-19 death statistics for elderly New Yorkers who died based on the governor’s written orders. Surprisingly, the President has been silent on the issue. But the White House has taken a stance. For complete details, click on this link:
Dr. Anthony Fauci will not let go of his constant edicts (which change from week to week countering his previous instructions) telling us what we CAN and SHOULD do to battle COVID-19. He’s just as vehement telling us we CANNOT do. He’s even targeting those in our military who, in large part, are refusing to take a vaccination. For complete details, click on this link:
Certainly by now you’ve heard the insult uttered against people in Texas who support Gov. Greg Abbott’s reopening of his state that includes doing away with the mask mandate. Biden called those people “Neanderthals.” Actor Dennis Quaid doesn’t like Biden’s slam against he and his fellow Texans. What is Quaid going to do? For complete details, click on this link:
It’s Saturday morning and time to catch-up on the happenings from the past week, some of which you probably missed. We did NOT miss them. It works very simply: After each bullet point we give you a sentence or two that describes each story. If you want full details, just click on the blue “swoosh” at the end of the description. Go to a story that gives you “the rest of the story.” Dig in!
Connecticut Federal Attorney John Durham announced his resignation on Friday. Before you panic, the ONLY thing he resigned was his position as federal attorney. He will full-time execute the role of Special Prosecutor to continue the investigation into wrongdoing by the Obama/Biden Administration in the Russia Collusion investigation of Candidate and then President Trump. For complete details, click on this link:
Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) gave a dramatic speech at CPAC in Orlando on Friday. He whipped the conservative crowd into a frenzy, especially when he called the #1 nemesis of the U.S. “Chi-merica.” What does that mean? For complete details, click on this link:
It certainly comes as no surprise that, with the election of Joe Biden, we have a surging and already-massive illegal immigration problem at the southern border. Just weeks into his presidency, Joe Biden is scrambling as are his immigration and border patrol officials to get their arms around this mass of people flooding to our southern border. The Biden Administration is woefully unprepared. And the entire issue is President Biden’s fault. For complete details, click on this link:
It probably comes as no surprise that another major U.S. city that is governed by far left local and state officials is suffering with a massive increase of crime shortly after they made the decision to, and subsequently have, defunded the police. And they have allocated the money saved to black communities. It’s San Francisco. For complete details, click on this link:
Have you ever wondered how at Planned Parenthood abortion centers how facilitating and performing the abortions of tens of thousands of American babies impact those in leadership at these clinics? Certainly the constant process of killing babies must take its toll. One former PP clinic insider says it makes her feel like “an administrator at Auschwitz during WWII.” For complete details, click on this link:
Great news on Friday! Johnson & Johnson received emergency use approval from the Federal Drug Administration to begin use of the third COVID-19 vaccination. How is it different from those already in use by Moderna and Pfizer? For complete details, click on this link:
No one can reasonably maintain that there were not numerous achievements for the American People during the Trump presidency. However, those on the Left are still quick to deny the significant facts that prove the good really happened — or at least the Trump was responsible. At CPAC on Friday, former Rep. Jason Chaffetz blistered Republicans who choose to diminish the results of President Trump, opting instead to judge his White House tenure based solely on their opinions of his personality while ignoring the good he did. For complete details, click on this link:
Accusations are flying from numerous Americans at the actions taken this week by the Biden Administration against Syria in a U.S. air strike. It’s reported the attack was retaliation against Iran for allegedly killing several Americans last year. But Biden was nasty in his barrage of insults of President Trump’s for the attack on his watch that took out Iran’s #1 General who had personally ordered the killing of several hundred Americans in the Middle East. For complete details, click on this link:
U.S. Intelligence agencies released classified information on Friday that apparently implicates the Saudi Crown Prince in the brutal execution of a Saudi national who worked in the U.S. as a reporter. Saudi Arabia has consistently denied any responsibility. For complete details, click on this link:
Even though a $15 per hour minimum wage is to be included in the House version of the COVID-19 stimulus bill, it will not survive in the Senate. Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) has an idea: why not pass a law requiring big corporations like Amazon and other billion dollar corporation to pay a $15 minimum wage rate? For complete details, click on this link:
Of course, CNN showed up at CPAC to “report” on happenings there. Their #1 anti-conservative reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at the conference in Orlando and asked why CNN concentrates on Sen. Ted Cruz dropping his two daughters in Mexico during the Texas freeze but ignores the 10,000 seniors who died at the hands of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. For complete details, click on this link:
It comes as no surprise that House Speaker Pelosi uses convenient comparisons to justify doing some of the strangest things in Congress. Pelosi this week in the wake of passing “The Equality Act”likened the stigma of Transgenderism to that of AIDS. Sound a bit strange to you? If so, you’re certainly not alone. For complete details, click on this link:
Did you know the Olympics are headed to China? Many in the U.S. are NOT happy about that and feel the Olympics should be moved elsewhere. Nikki Haley suggested that having the events in China is a bad idea. Why? According to the former governor, China is just like Nazi Germany was in 1936. For complete details, click on this link:
We’ve all heard stories of UFO’s in various settings. But pilots in flight have reported dozens of cases of viewing and even watching for extended periods of time UFO’s in crazy acts in flight most recently. The latest comes from American Airlines pilots in the recent past. For complete details, click on this link:
Boy, this past week was a doozie! Just when you think we’d seen it all, here comes a frigid Arctic storm that sent temperatures in the South to North Pole levels. In fact, in Austin, Texas, the low-temperature Tuesday of this past week was lower than the low in Juneau, Alaska! Figure that one out. But one thing that did not change was the difficulty in ferreting the truth from the bizarre political events that get crazier each day. This week did not disappoint. We get to the top such events in today’s Bullet Points.
Take a look at each bullet point below. They each begin with a short description of a news story. If you want complete details on what the highlights describe, click on the blue “swoosh” and go to a full story. If you’ve already seen the details of the full story, just skip to the next one.
It’s a great way to begin each weekend. Grab a cup of coffee and forget about the newspaper. Relax and catch up on the week in our Saturday Bullet Points!
We haven’t heard much about the investigations in the Capitol craziness from January 6th. We have heard that authorities have identified about 200 “persons of interest” identified for wrongdoing that day through face recognition software. There have been several arrests mentioned, but almost all came with few or no details. But what we DID hear on Friday was 35 Capitol Police have been temporarily suspended while being investigated. For complete details, click on this link:
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has been under constant fire for his role in the deaths of many senior New Yorkers from COVID-19 during the pandemic. His problem is a policy that he unilaterally implemented that demanded any senior taken from a senior residence center to a hospital where if/when tested positive for COVID-19 MUST be immediately returned to the facility from which they came. That needlessly infected thousands of others in that senior center, many of which died. Cuomo’s is in deep trouble! He’s now got Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez gunning for him. For complete details, click on this link:
Most people know that Governor Cuomo’s brother is an anchor at CNN: Chris Cuomo. In the critical arctic storm aftermath in Texas, many state and local politicians are under fire there for not preparing Texans for the storm results. Chris Cuomo on-air at CNN has not even mentioned the problems allegedly at his brother’s hands in New York. But what Chris did was make fun of a Texas mayor who resigned over the uproar in his city about the severe issues for his constituents during the Texas freeze. Chris is now under the gun himself for snide remarks on-air about that mayor while ignoring his brother’s debacle in New York. For complete details, click on this link:
ANTIFA thugs have continuously ripped apart the downtown sections in Portland, Oregon, with rioting and looting for the past year or so. They’ve destroyed buildings, caused businesses to shutter, attacked individuals, and even invaded homes. Police in Portland have done little to stop the continuation of ANTIFA violence. But the state nor the city have taken any steps to designate ANTIFA as a specific entity to be labeled. The state of Montana is not waiting for ANTIFA to come its way with destruction. Their legislature has taken preemptive steps. For complete details, click on this link:
It is uncontroverted there were problems in not just the actual election process on November 3, 2020, but also in the vote compilation process in multiple states. We’ll probably never know what the real voting picture was in that election. We haven’t heard of any massive election reform measures at the state level — until today. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has presented to his legislature plans to investigate and overhaul parts of their election process that are suspect. For complete details, click on this link:
There are many expectations for many government changes initiated by the Biden Administration. Most of Joe Biden’s campaign promises were simple: “let’s undo every Trump executive order and let’s remove all of the conservative-backed pieces of legislation and replace with Democrat versions. That process has begun in earnest. But there’s one underway that we just uncovered: a plan for banks to refuse banking services to the enemies of Democrats! For complete details, click on this link:
It didn’t take long for Joe Biden to fulfill another of his promises: The United States is now back in the Paris Climate Accords. President Trump withdrew our nation from that international agreement that accomplished very little for us while mandating that U.S. tax dollars in the hundreds of billions over the next decade-plus into the Accords while being demanded to take climate actions that will cost billions more. That while China — the largest polluter by far in the Accords — pays only a fraction of the U.S. number and does not have to perform on the reduction of their environmental issues for ten years. For complete details, click on this link:
First, it was Al Gore; then it was John Kerry. Each became climate-change specialists for reasons no one can explain: neither are scientists, neither know anything about our climate and certainly neither have no idea about what and how humans can even impact Earth’s environment, even if that’s possible! And now that John Kerry is back in the saddle in the Biden Administration, he’s informed us that we only have nine years before the end of the world because of climate change. For complete details, click on this link:
FINALLY: some good news regarding COVID-19 cases. Apparently, the numbers of cases across the nation are steadily declining over the past month or so. But the CNN news model is this: “Never let any good news destroy a good news story.” And that exact thing has happened. CNN issued a warning to Americans that the COVID-19 good news really is NOT good news. For complete details, click on this link:
Maybe we finally have some excellent instructions on how to fix all the ailments in our Country. We just thought things were improving significantly during the Trump Administration. If one listens to all those “experts” on the left, things are not only “not so good,” they’re terrible. Maybe we should start fixing our problems by first doing something to put us on the right road: ignore all the left tell us! For complete details, click on this link:
Moving the nation to a totally non-fossil fuel energy system certainly sounds good. Oh, doing so would put millions of workers out of jobs, but just think of the great things it will do for our environment! Wait a minute: didn’t Texas and other southern states get in trouble during this deep freeze in part because wind turbines froze and solar panels don’t produce energy from sunlight? Neither has been fruitful in these states the last week or so. Maybe we should just accept facts and change our plans to make the use of fossil fuels even more efficient, and maybe add some more nuclear power plants. For complete details, click on this link:
This past week was certainly dominated by the Impeachment trial of Donald Trump: a private citizen, but still in the bullseye of hatred of the Democrat Party. Because of the historical basis of the trial, (only second time in history a President/Former President was impeached twice) other news of importance was certainly lost in the shuffle. Never fear! TruthNewsNetwork grabbed them all and we have them here today. Read the description of the content of stories. If you want more details, click on the blue “swoosh” to go to the story represented in the Bullet Point.
It’s a great way to wrap up your week assuring you miss no important news!
The newly elected United States Representative from New York, Claudia Tenney, was sworn into office this last week. The swearing-in of members of Congress every two years are historical events. Because they are, family members of those entering office are always invited to the ceremony. Not so in this case. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi forbade the son of the representative — who happens to be enrolled in the Naval Academy — was not allowed to attend the event. Why? For complete details, click on this link:
Over two days in the Senate chamber, House Managers presented their case on which they say is full of sufficient evidence of Trump wrongdoing on January 6th and other occasions to justify his removal from office. Never mind that the Impeachment Clause of the Constitution states the Senate can only remove a “sitting” President, they still want a guilty verdict. One legal expert says what the Managers presented was anything BUT real evidence in their case. For complete details, click on this link:
It’s now the time of year which most Americans despise: the tax season. Everyone needs to understand that this year is WAY different from previous years. There are very important changes in IRS filing regulations that all should know before they or their tax professionals proceed with tax returns. What are the changes? For complete details, click on this link:
The House Managers, in most experts’ opinions, made a mockery of the Constitution in their arguments to justify a guilty verdict for Mr. Trump. Rep. Ted Lieu gave a raucous speech in which he railed that President Trump during ALL of his campaign rallies made comments continually that alone were incitement on his part for his supporters to commit violence. His arguments were so egregious that a dozen GOP Senators actually got up and left the Senate Chamber! What did he say that enraged them so? For complete details, click on this link:
Who says that Big Tech monsters Facebook and Twitter are not joined at the hip and do not protect each other from outside influences and attacks? Twitter has permanently banned independent research group Project Veritas founded by James O’Keefe for allegedly violating the company’s rules on sharing “private information” without consent. For complete details, click on this link:
We reported this story yesterday on our 9-11 AM show, “TNN Live.” But it certainly is serious enough to repeat so that all know exactly how dishonest many in political leadership are — including the Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo. One of his aids released that the New York government — on Cuomo’s orders — hid the true numbers of the deaths of NY seniors in nursing homes during the COVID-19 pandemic. Why did that happen and what does the report say? For complete details, click on this link:
Several states are considering laws to ban athletic competitions that pit biological males that are transgender against biological females. That has happened again and again over the past few years and is drawing worldwide criticism for the practice. Which states are taking such actions? For the names of those states and the attendant circumstances, click on this link:
Three FOX News personalities have filed motions in court asking the court to dismiss Smartmatic suits against them individually. FOX News already filed for relief from the $2.7 billion suit filed against them. The lawsuit claims the three caused financial damage to the company through their claims following the November 3, 2020 presidential election. For complete details, click on this link:
Southerners have a tough time getting accustomed to driving in winter weather. Many from elsewhere think it’s because Southerners just don’t know how to drive. Not so. In the South when the weather gets cold, first it rains for a long time. As temperatures fall, roads ice over. It’s that ice that gets them. A Thursday pileup on I-35 outside of Ft. Worth saw at least 133 vehicles in the madness with at least 9 confirmed dead so far. For complete details, click on this link:
Any person who believes that Joe Biden is above spouting political rhetoric, making promises that he breaks almost immediately and lying to Americans, is dead wrong. A few weeks ago Biden made a commitment about those who work for him if caught in any type of egregious activity. Biden said he’d fire them “on the spot.” Well, it happened, Biden did NOT fire that person “on the spot.” Who was it? What were the circumstances? For complete details, click on this link:
Former South Carolina Governor and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, has separated herself from time to time during the Trump Administration from the President. But Haley during the 2020 campaign was very supportive of President Trump. But since the election, she has very obviously starting campaigning for a run for the GOP nomination for President in the 2024 election. And Friday she made an even more demonstrative move to separate from Trump. For complete details, click on this link:
Politico and other fact-checkers are quick to “expose” wrong information published by some of their news competitors. But maybe Politico should spend less time fact-checking and more time confirming their own sources. For instance, Politico has reported some really “speckled” facts about the Biden Family Syndicate and its sketchy wrongdoings in several areas. The Wall Street Journal decided to fact-check the fact-checkers at Politico. For complete details, click on this link:
It did not take long for Joe Biden to totally open the illegal alien “spicket” to allow illegals across our southern border in large numbers. Late Friday it was announced that the Biden Administration ordered that 25,000 illegals that have been held in Mexico awaiting their asylum claims to be adjudicated to be released in the U.S. immediately!

Time flies when we’re having fun, doesn’t it. I don’t know so much about “fun,” but we’re having a bunch of things happen — so many happenings that it’s hard to keep up with them all.

Rob O’Neil, the Navy Seal who shot Osama bin Laden, appeared on Laura Ingraham’s show to discuss the Cancel Culture that is taking over the U.S. Military. He was joined by a fellow member of the military to chime in. They both pointed to the massive hypocrisy from the Left that is permeating even the military. For complete details, watch this brief report:
The Thursday overnight craziness that saw the U.S. Senate in session from 2:00 PM Thursday until 6:00 AM Friday morning resulted in what was obviously going to happen: Democrats have won the battle to borrow another $1.9 Trillion to add to the trillions already spent on COVID-19 relief. The procedural action gives President Biden virtual solo power to proceed without any Republican support. For complete details, click on this link:
President Biden on Friday in the wake of the bleak manufacturing jobs picture for both December and January painted a really bleak picture of the nation’s economy. What happened to the miracles he pledged he would bring with him to Washington to immediately “fix” our COVID-19 economic disaster?He said it will take ten years to repair! For complete details, click on this link:
It surely comes as no surprise to Americans that China took advantage of the U.S. during 2020 and even into 2021 in what they sold to us in the way of COVID-19 necessities. It’s now been confirmed China sent millions of counterfeit masks and even bogus test kits to the U.S. during the pandemic. For complete details, click on this link:
Remember that sweet young European girl that put the World on its ear at the United Nations, Greta Thunberg? Now, Greta has apparently stepped over the line in the nation of India! She is the target of a criminal investigation by authorities in India for providing false information which instigated riots among farmers in India. For complete details, click on this link:
Gavin Newsom’s tenure as California’s governor is in trouble. We’ve kept you apprised as a petition for a recall election has circulated around the state. It was just announced over one million Californians have signed up to remove him. The petition is barely 100,000 signatures short of the number needed to force a recall election. For complete details, click on this link:
You better be careful about any claims you make public about your suspicions of voter fraud in the November 3rd election! The Cancel Culture will do everything within their power to dump you from every good thing in which your are involved. The Gateway Pundit, in an effort to finally find the truth, requestedseveral months ago the video footage from the TCF Center in Michigan from election night. They just received it. The results are mind-boggling! For complete details, click on this link:
First Lady Jill Biden cemented the fact that many Americans never new about her: she is an expert on what dogs think and feel. To that end, she is featured in a SuperBowl ad in which she encourages Americans to continue to wear masks. We need to do it for our dogs — because that’s what dogs want us to do!

If you work at the Pentagon, your job just might be in trouble. And if you happen to fall within three particular circumstances, your job IS in trouble. What are they? If you’re a Trump supporter, a female and pregnant, LOOK OUT! For complete details, click on this link:
If you have any number of genetic things you have inherited from your ancestors, in most cases you’re simply stuck with what those genes look like in your life. But, according to the new science of Epigenetics, there are some things you can do to fight the natural results of those inherited genes. For complete details, click on this link:
It’s common knowledge that Texas is a very Red state. It’s also well-known that many Texans don’t like the current state of political affairs in the U.S. Keeping that in mind, Texas Republicans passed a motion to support the Texas legislature to pass a bill allowing Texas to secede from the nation and become an independent entity! For complete details, click on this link:
By now, all have heard Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ report of the horror she personally experienced during the storming of the U.S. Capitol. A huge majority of Americans are skeptical of her claims regarding being previously sexually assaulted and that the sexual assault experience made her January 6th experience horrifying. But, CNN’s Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon joined together to make any psychologist shake their head by claiming this: “A threat doesn’t have to be real for you to believe it.” (You can’t make this stuff up!)

“EO Biden” had a REALLY busy week, didn’t he? And in issuing three dozen executive orders, he set the United States on its ear. Tens of millions are in shock after what he has done.

We have heard very little about the pipe bombs placed at the headquarters of the Democrat Party and also the Republican Party. All we’ve been told is that they were REAL bombs and that they are looking for “a” person suspected of planting the bombs. Apparently, the FBI received some new information. It must have been serious because they have upped the reward for the perpetrator to $100,000. For complete details, click on this link:
It is not usual for bureaucratic government “top dogs” to come to their positions with some baggage. After all, politics is a dirty game. Joe Biden is set for some necessary explaining because his Treasury Secretary has more than just one or two pieces of baggage with her! Janet Yellen, former head of the Federal Reserve, took the Treasury job from President Biden and will be dealing daily with the monsters on Wall Street who really run the nation’s economy. The problem is that after leaving the Fed, Yellen raked in millions for “speaking fees” from those same Wall Street tycoons. Expecting any “quid pro quo?” For complete details, click on this link:
Everyone knows that Big Tech in its entirety despises President Trump. Facebook, Twitter, and several other social media platforms canceled his accounts during the campaign. Believe it or not, Facebook has formed a committee to examine all of the “reasons” Facebook had for terminating Mr. Trump and to make a decision whether or not to let him come back! For complete details, click on this link:
We’ve always known that China is full of “techno-geeks” that have the same (or even better) tech skills as does the U.S. But we DIDN’T think that China was able to get into ALL the details of Americans’ lives as easily as they apparently have. It’s been reported that China has the goods on 80% of American adults! For complete details, click on this link:
You might be surprised to learn that every day, the evidence is piling up that verifies that the D.C. assault on Capitol Hill was orchestrated, so much so that the evidence is severely weakening any potential case against President Trump. For complete details, click on this link:
By now I’m certain you’ve at least heard about the Gamestop/AMC debacle playing out on Wall Street. Tens of billions of dollars are involved. But it appears that the war this has started is NOT just between big Wall Street Banks and Hedge Funds and smalltown Day Traders. Instead, it’s really between Elites — the Big Wall Street guys — and Populists — the Donald Trump created individual traders. For complete details, click on this link:
The New York governor, Andrew Cuomo, has become the darling of the Mainstream Media. Many feel he’s a viable candidate for President in 2024. However, the Mayor has tarnished his credibility a bit by underplaying his role in the deaths of thousands of seniors from COVID-19. And he’s downplaying a report just released that reveals he also had authorities UNDER REPORT the numbers of such deaths. For complete details, click on this link:
Now might be your only chance ever to buy a multimillion-dollar mansion for pennies on the dollar. Why is that? Extremely expensive homes are flooding the real estate market as millionaires and billionaires are fleeing America’s biggest cities headed for tax havens in states like Texas, Florida, Tennessee, and Nevada. For complete details, click on this link:
There has always been animosity between lawmakers in Washington based on political party affiliation. But it’s never been like it is today. Hostilities are reaching a fever pitch fueled in part by fears of actual violence that more and more in Congress feel like may target them. And Democrat leadership is fueling that fear. For complete details, click on this link:
Do you remember hearing all those quotes supposedly from former Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in which Mitch expressed his anger for the President and that he would even consider voting to convict Mr. Trump in an impeachment trial in the Senate? Well, maybe Mitch didn’t say those things: or maybe he really did but for a planned purpose. What could that purpose be? Maybe to blow-up any impeachment trial before it even begins!

The leader of the Middle Eastern nation who is the greatest ally to the U.S. in the region — Benjamin Netanyahu — may have a problem in his re-election bid. He has always had the support of the ultra-Orthodox Jewish community that may not be behind the Prime Minister. And COVID-19 is at the center of the problems. For complete details, click on this link:
Everyone knows President Biden stopped construction on the southern border wall. Nobody is discussing the direct and immediate impact of that decision. First, a bunch of people are instantly out of jobs. Secondly, the job of building the wall is contracted between the federal government and multiple vendors: contracts, which means breaking contracts. And what about all the materials for construction that are literally on the ground in southern states? For complete details, click on this link:

Joe Biden’s first day as President was a big one — and not a really good one. Why? He signed a satchel full of executive orders. Of course, we heard from the White House media folks that “President Biden took executive action which was desperately needed to undo multiple policies of the Trump Administration that harmed the American people and cost taxpayers tens of millions of dollars.” We looked at all of them and not one we could find fit THEIR description. But what we DID discover that, in total, Biden’s EO’s will destroy almost immediately 70,000 jobs. For complete details, click on this link:
Everyone now knows 25,000 National Guard members were called to Washington D.C. because of “credible evidence” from the Intelligence Community that, on Inauguration Day, there were planned demonstrations and rioting by extremists that were not only coming to D.C., but to every one of the 50 state capitals. Everyone now also knows there was NO violence in D.C. nor in any of those state capitals. But the National Guard members as of yesterday were still on assignment in Washington. And they were being forced to sleep on concrete floors in a parking garage! For complete details, click on this link:
Republicans in the 2020 campaign warned Americans that if the GOP lost majority control in the Senate, a Schumer-led Democrat majority would pack the courts — including the Supreme Court — and end the filibuster, which has been the only way the minority party has any say-so in legislation. Schumer initially indicated to Minority Leader Mitch McConnell that he would NOT end the filibuster. But now, things are looking a little different. For complete details, click on this link:
Day One as President turned out to a hard day for Mr. Biden. After all, he is the oldest person to ever be sworn into office as POTUS. But he made it clear to all during the campaign that he was ready and fit for the job. But his responses to Day One events seem to have proven otherwise. For complete details, click on this link:
Don’t get angry at the story you will see if you click the link here. Joe Biden enters the White House certainly facing some serious challenges. Of course, he’s ready to accept the challenges, he maintains. I think, however, once you read what TIME had to say about the “stuff” Trump left for Biden, you’re going to disagree a bit. For complete details, click on this link:
Did you see the streets of Washington D.C. during the Biden Inauguration? Most expected there would massive crowds lined up along the presidential motorcade route pressing forward to get a glimpse at the new President. However, nobody was there! That’s a bit of an overstatement. But in the context of “normal” inaugurations, there was nobody there! However, there were 25,000 “extra” National Guard members in town to keep Mr. Biden safe. I think that picture illustrates Democrats to be a bit paranoid. For complete details, click on this link:
It appears that a bunch of Americans who voted for Biden based on some of his promises are already disappointed. If not now, it appears they’re in for some sadness. Biden’s appeal to all for unity in the nation has already fallen apart. He’s already begun breaking his promises. For complete details, click on this link:
EVERY conservative American — at least every female conservative American — were aghast at the four years of the Trumps in the White House because of the egregious treatment of the First Lady by the media. Melania Trump is undoubtedly in the top several of former first ladies when it comes to grace, beauty, attitude, and certainly her fashion statements. She deserved much better from the American press. For complete details, click on this link:
Former President Obama famously denied there was any violence in the northwest or midwest as the cities of Seattle, Portland, Minneapolis, and Chicago were racked with demonstrations, riots, looting, and a bunch of destruction of private and public property. Biden, while campaigning, simply ignored the ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter devastation. Friday, Iowa U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley urged Biden to speak to the CURRENT such attacks going on in Portland and Seattle. Biden has so far been silent. For complete details, click on this link:
California has been especially hard-hit by COVID-19. Many healthcare officials feel California’s massive number of cases are due, at least in part, to the sinister statewide lockdown mandates issued by Governor Gavin Newsom. But two huge counties in the state are impacted with almost opposite results in handling the pandemic. And they’re right next door to each other. What could be making the difference? For the answers and more details, click on this link:
Speaking of California, its colorful “Playboy” Governor — Gavin Newsom — has apparently been “playing” on the side, making some big bucks for someone: the Chinese. He purposely kept from sight a massive contract he negotiated and signed with a Chinese company — a $1 Billion contract. Many Californians are questioning the deal and are now even concerned about possible shenanigans by the governor. For complete details, click on this link:

What’s next? It looks like “Sleepy Joe” is set to become “President Biden” on Wednesday and that President Trump will NOT be sitting in the front row for the grand event. All this (and much more) are products of November 3rd’s election debacle that will be known in American history as “the first presidential election cloaked in fraud and subversion.” You can bet on that.

Joe Biden hasn’t even been inaugurated as President and a freshman member of the U.S. House of Representatives has already prepared articles of impeachment she plans to present in the House Thursday, a day after the inauguration. Her impeachment claim is NOT against the outgoing president. It’s against Joe Biden. For complete details, click on this link:
There can no longer be any question about the Far Left in Congress and how they feel about members of the GOP. “Those ‘old folks’ gotta go!” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) may not have said that in so many words, but she this past week made bombastic allegations against members of the Republican Party, especially those who are White. For complete details, click on this link:
Months ago, President Trump officially declassified all of the documents produced during the Russia Collusion investigation. However, those documents were not released to the public until Friday. Each intelligence department had to examine each document to determine if any information contained would potentially harm U.S. national security if released. Those documents contain damning evidence that confirms the suspicions of many that there was wrongdoing by the FBI in obstructing a smooth transition from the Obama Administration to that of President Trump. The revelations are monumental! For complete details, click on this link:
Have you paid attention to the Biden nominees for his cabinet and other critical positions in his administration? It’s uncanny how he almost universally has chosen people to which he owes something to serve in our government. And the partisan hacks are innumerable! Biden’s pick for the top Pentagon position was publicly hyping the Steel Dossier at the beginning of the Trump administration. For complete details, click on this link:
Big Tech social media companies have consistently used suppression of content they call “hate-speech” or simply does not meet the posting standards of each company. They censored some of President Trump’s posts them terminated his accounts. AOC is sticking her nose into stuff she does not understand. She stated Congress should intervene in media to “help” control hate-speech by creating a commission to make sure the definition of “Democrat” hate-speech is the only one that counts. For complete details, click on this link:
What happened to all the pre-election talk by Joe Biden about a plan to restore unity in our government and trust within the American people? You can kiss any unity goodbye! The tables have been turned and Democrats are already coniving to determine just how to use vile tactics to go after their political opponents in the GOP. For complete details, click on this link:
Have you seen your $600 COVID-19 stimulus check yet? If you did not receive yours yesterday, the IRS says you may have to wait and include it in your 2020 federal income tax return. Even though Joe Biden campaigned for months promising Americans $2000 in personal stimulus checks, Biden released Friday it will be only $1400. His flip-flop on this has angered a host of Americans. For complete details, click on this link:
Don’t forget that Joe Biden is numbered among the “most susceptible” of Americans to be infected with COVID-19. Are there any special things that must be done to prepare the White House for the Biden occupancy? One would imagine that a “deep clean” of floors, furniture, drapes, etc. would cost a bit more than are the costs for the same type of job for average Americans. Trust me: it’s expensive! For complete details, click on this link:
Mainstream media along with the Democrats have shouted incessantly since the Capitol Hill debacle how vile are all those Trump sycophants who mobbed the house of U.S. government. But to the chagrin of the Left, facial recognition software is allowing the DOJ and the FBI to identify a large number of those involved and subsequently arrest them. Surprisingly for Pelosi & Co., quite a few of those folks come right from the Democrat Party! For complete details, click on this link:
Word around Washington is that, very quietly, some Republican legislators were giving secret tours of the Capitol building the day before the mob attacks. Many Democrats seized on those demonstrators were those Republicans showing where all the good parts of the building were so those “tourists” would know where to go when they mobbed! Yep: they’re saying the GOP setup what happened. Is that true? For complete details, click on this link:
We already know that President Trump will not be in attendance at the inauguration of Joe Biden on January 20. I’m certain the Bidens are pretty comfortable with that. Because of the surrounding circumstances, Trump being there would probably be a bit awkward. So what will the President be doing that day? Probably playing golf. For complete details, click on this link:
No doubt there was significant numbers of news media covering the Trump rally and the events involving the Capitol Building breach. But would you believe that CNN actually had a photo journalist embedded in the fray as it happened? And she accompanied an ANTIFA protestor as they both illegally entered the Capitol!

Relax this morning: you deserve it! Catch up on things you may have overlooked. And in this political environment, though tempted to worry and fret, don’t give in to the temptation of fear. Worry does no one any good. When a teenager, I had a Sunday School teacher who addressed fear this way: “Instead of living in fear about something, just ask this question: What difference will it make in 100 years?” It will probably help you deal with the noise and uncertainty of things we see and hear if you think that through. One thing’s for certain: you’ll learn a few things.
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) ran against President Trump and other Republicans for the GOP nomination for President in 2016. You may remember that the Senator had very little to say about Mr. Trump that was positive during the campaign. In fact, Graham was often downright ugly. But, after the 2016 election, Sen. Graham became “best buddies” with President Trump. But their chumminess came to a screeching “Whoa!” in the aftermath of the violence on Capitol Hill on Wednesday of this past week. Graham ranted on the House floor about Trump “inciting the violence.” To Graham’s credit, though, when the cries and threats by Democrats of a second impeachment of President Trump, Senator Graham advised Dems doing so would be a huge mistake. For complete details, click on this link:
In the aftermath of the run on the Capitol on January 6th, the Mainstream Media and the Democrats have excoriated not just President Trump, (as if he told the crowd to do what they did) they also lashed out then and continue now to includeTrump supporters. Many of those who attended the rallies in D.C. and others from around the country say that the fingerpointing from the Left is unfair and circumstances are mischaracterized. For complete details, click on this link:
It’s a fact that control of the federal government is changing: Biden taking the Democrat Party back to the White House, and Georgia apparently taking control of the Senate to the Dems. But some say this control just might be short-lived. For complete details, click on this link:
Nancy Pelosi has made it clear: she wants Donald Trump GONE! And not just when his term expires on January 20th. She wants him gone today! In fact, she has made it clear she wants the 25th Amendment used by VP Pence and the President’s cabinet. But experts say that cannot be done. Why? It’s unconstitutional.

2021-22 is going to see a race that’s a bit unusual in the United States. There’s going to be a fight to see which U.S. company sees its value cross the 1 Trillion dollar mark in value? Who will it be that crosses the line first: Microsoft, Amazon, ABC (Google’s parent company), or Tesla. The inside track on the race is today owned by Tesla. Guess how much Elon Musk’s company is worth today? Click on this link for complete details:
Most Americans feel that those who aspire and then achieve finding their way into Congress means a person has risen to the top in respect, acceptance, and economic heights that just a rare few can claim — especially winning a U.S. Senate seat. But one U.S. Senator discovered that winning a U.S. Senate seat doesn’t necessarily mean the winner will receive instant acceptance from many in America. That applies especially when that Senator is a Republican and is also an ardent supporter of Donald Trump. Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) found that out the hard way when he received a phone call from his book publisher. For complete details, click on this link:
By now, you know that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has ordered the suspension of President Trump’s Facebook account indefinitely. For what reason? Apparently, the Facebook algorithm disagrees with the content of the majority of the President’s posts. The Big Tech social media giants that include Facebook, Twitter, Google (YouTube), Instagram, and even WhatsApp have been weaponized by their bosses to go after conservatives. The latest victim of Facebook is the FB page “WalkAway.” You will not believe what Zuckerberg & Company have done to the page that boasts half a million followers.

It’s hard to get away from reporting on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s egregious actions to almost totally center on her hatred for Donald Trump. She has actually been in consultation with an American general regarding the details of America’s “Nuclear Football!” For complete details, click on this link:
Mainstream Media has demeaned the Trump supporters who stormed the Capitol on Wednesday. The threats from the MSM and Democrats against those from the MAGA community who participated are mind-boggling! I have been sickened at the media’s false comparisons that claim none of the Summer “peaceful demonstrations” conducted by Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA were violent. They are even saying that is not only a joke, but it’s also an insult to every American. They claim (and maintain) that none of the BLM and ANTIFA adherents would dream of doing anything as vile as the MAGA crew did Wednesday. But guess what? BLM and ANTIFA were there! For complete details, click on this link:
All the Media have proclaimed that Joe Biden won the election, Jon Ossof and Raphael Warnock won both U.S. Senate seats in Georgia. There should be NO question about the legitimacy of any state’s election process. Why? Because FOX News and the Associated Press confirmed those victories! Therefore it’s is uncontroverted that they all won, right? When polled, slightly more than half the nation believes — STILL believes — that there was massive voter fraud across numerous states in the November 3rd election. So, what should we do? Here’s a novel suggestion: do what those Senators and Representatives suggested in Wednesday’s Congress’s joint session. Congress should appoint an independent commission to study ALL the election process and results to allay those Americans and every other American’s concerns that our election system is truly free and fair. For complete details, click on this link:
“The storming of the Capitol by Trump supporters was treasonous and seditious. Every perpetrator needs to be hunted down and hung!” Well, maybe “hung” is a little over the top. But Democrats certainly think that what happened is the worst thing ever to occur anywhere in the United States. But they have VERY short memories. Do you remember any Democrats that decided to get after any Americans in the Capitol, storming their way into Senate meetings? Think back just a few years: 2018. Remember that? For complete details, click on this link:
Everyone knows that President Trump failed Americans by not having the Capitol and surrounding areas protected sufficiently to stop what happened in Wednesday’s invasion of the U.S. Capitol. If for no other reason, Democrats feel he should be impeached and impeached immediately! Joe Biden made it clear that nothing like what we saw could have possibly taken place if HE had been president. Preparations would have been exhaustive to guarantee every American who participated would have been safe, and law enforcement would have been right there to keep any problems from occurring. The Media refuse to report that President Trump TRIED to make certain federal assistance would be in place in advance to keep this from happening. He even tried again when the violence began on Wednesday. For complete details, click on this link:
We thought it might happen, and, sure enough, it did. Twitter announced late Friday they have suspended the Twitter account of President Trump permanently. Their explanation for doing so? His recent tweets have “obviously been in violation of Twitter standards, and, those since the debacle at Capitol have been labeled as “inflammatory.” For complete details, click on this link:
President Trump is not the only “censorship victim” of Twitter. Twitter refuses to allow posts from one of America’s oldest newspapers. What’s odd about that is they have permanently suspended the account of the President of the United States AND blocked the account of the New York Post. How is that odd? It’s odd because five people who each have a bit more speckled past than either Mr. Trump or the Post are allowed to tweet freely. Who are they? For complete details, click on this link:
Let’s start this New Year with a commitment to demand more immediate, more accurate, and more detailed news about FACTS omitting NARRATIVE!
For all of you TruthNewsNetwork family members, thank you for being a part of this journey to dig deep and filter aways as much spin as possible to unbury nuggets of truth.
Let’s look at a few nuggets from the last week of 2020:
Friday was more than just another New Year’s Day: the U.S. Senate was back to business. Their “business” was to address President Trump’s veto of the Defense Authorization Act. And the Senate joined the House — which had already voted to override the Trump veto — and voted 80-13 to do just that. Where did your U.S. Senators stand? Who backed the President? For complete details, click on this link:
Looking back at the year, we will see numerous statistical reports of things from the past year. That always happens the first of each New Year. But one message I usually don’t see is the outgoing year’s list of how many and the types of deaths. Let’s look at 2020’s World deaths. What was the leading cause of death in 2020? The answer will likely shock you. For complete details, click on this link:
We’ve heard much about the shut-down of schools, partial re-opening, “virtual classrooms,” and the constant uproar from the medical community urging in-person education, even during the pandemic. But what you have NOT heard was that President Trump issued an executive order last week that gives parents a wide variety of NEW options for school choice for their children. For complete details, click on this link:
A host of Republicans in the House and several in the Senate have voiced their intentions to object to the slates of electors that will be presented to Congress on January 6. Of course, Democrats and many Republicans alike are aghast at this divisive action. Millions of Americans are shocked that any would object at all! Massive evidence of voter fraud exists that, if allowed to be revealed to the nation, would probably prove Biden didn’t legally win. Dems want Americans to forget that THEY objected the same way in 2000 and 2004. For complete details, click on this link:
This will probably shock you: If confirmed as President, Joe Biden does not only want to mandate somehow that every American wear a mask at all times, he wants to make it a criminal offense not to do so. And he wants to do that at the same time American decriminalizes someone who knowingly transmits AIDS to others! For complete details, click on this link:
2021 will bring a bunch of changes to our World. One that is being pushed hard by Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has to do with America’s public schools. The Senate Minority Leader stands firmly behind Joe Biden in their demands for schools to allow boys and girls to use the same restrooms. It’s hard to believe our grandchildren may be about to live in that world! For complete details, click on this link:
2020 was an unmitigated disaster in ratings and attendance for all professional sports leagues and teams. You can bet all these teams and clubs will blame their devastation on COVID-19 and its subsequent egregious restrictions. But even before COVID-19, American fans had slipped away from pro league support because of their insistence to back anti-American and social justice political ideals at games! For complete details, click on this link:
We have not only one COVID-19 vaccine racing across America; we have two! One would think everyone would be thrilled to have these two options so quickly to choose to battle this pandemic. But many across the nation are hesitant to get in the “injection” line — even half of the frontline medical workers in many areas! Why is that? For complete details, click on this link:
Amid the good news about vaccines for COVID-19 flooding American, wouldn’t you know it: another strain of COVID has been identified in patients in Colorado and now in Florida. Is this just a morph of the existing Sars-2, or is it something else? It may be too early to tell. For complete details, click on this link:
Many college football fans hate it when they see “scholarshipped” players leave a school to transfer somewhere else. That usually happens because they don’t get the playing time they think they should get. Oklahoma has seen that happen often. But already this off-season, the Sooners just announced they are losing their second quarterback in just a month to bolt to go elsewhere. What’s going on? For complete details, click on this link:
Everybody’s leaving California! Hewlett Packard, Elon Musk, the NFL Raiders left Oakland for Vegas, San Francisco 49ers had to move to Phoenix for practice and home games because of Governor Newsom’s COVID-19 lockdowns. Thousands of Californians headed east to escape CA’s nasty income taxes. What’s next? Even the Rose Bowl has left! For complete details, click on this link:
As bad as COVID-19 lockdowns in California have been for every citizen, it seems to many that rather than try to craft opportunities for businesses to stay open to, even on a limited basis, allow workers and patrons the ability to try to keep moving ahead. It’s working in other parts of the nation, so why not try? San Francisco just announced their restaurants would be closed far into 2021! For complete details, click on this link:
We haven’t heard much lately about illegal immigration. Why is that? We know illegal border crossings have dropped significantly, primarily because of the enforcement of immigration laws. But it looks like “reverse” immigration is picking up its pace rapidly. Illegals are leaving California headed back to Mexico! Why is that? For complete details, click on this link:
Many Americans have wondered why President Trump seems to have been really calm since the election — at least not as heated and confrontational as usual. He has spoken to the various issues of voting irregularities around the country and pointed to the lack of support among some Republicans for pushing hard for enforcing the rule of law in our elections. Other than those he’s been rather “passive” — a word seldom saved for him. Now we know why! The Big Guns are coming out in the joint session of Congress on January 6th.

Q. What is a New Year’s resolution? A. Something that goes in one year and out the other.
Youth is when you’re allowed to stay up for New Year’s. Middle age is when you’re forced to.
My New Year’s resolution is to stop hanging out with people who ask me about my New Year’s resolutions.
An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves.
I see no need to make more New Year’s resolutions when the ones already on the books aren’t being enforced.
This New Year’s, I resolved to lead a better life. Now all I have to do is find someone who will trade lives with me.
Q. What’s the one group that hates New Year’s Day? A. The New Year’s Eve clean-up crew.
I was going to quit all my bad habits for the new year, but then I remembered that nobody likes a quitter.
