Saturday Bullet Points: September 19, 2020

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!

Bullet Points

  • 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. For complete details click on this link:
  • 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:
  • Weather has been front and center far too often this year for the comfort of Americans. Besides the horrendous fires in the West and Northwest, hurricanes and other storms in the East have resulted in horrible damage, especially in the Southeast and the Gulf Coast. There have been so many hurricanes and tropical storms that officials have run out of names for more expected named storms. What to do? For complete details, click on this link:
  • Our social media giants have come under intense fire for picking and choosing what content to allow to be posted on their sites. Many feel their doing violates the Freedom of Speech. Now Facebook faces another egregious allegation: spying on Facebook users. For complete details click on this link:
  • For decades scientists have scoured the world of medicine to find a cure for cancer. Many through the years have pointed to the benefits of coffee to our bodies and even to the possibility of cancer cures. Now it seems that coffee can effectively take-on colorectal cancer!

  • A mystery surrounding the disappearance of a famous Russian ballerina feared to have been murdered six years ago may be resolved. WARNING: the details are shocking:

Bullet Points

  • While the protests in Oregon roars — certainly in Portland — the citizens of the state have grown tired of the treatment by the authorities of the violent protestors. After 100+ days in a row of protesting and violence, Oregonians don’t feel authorities have done enough to quell the violence. For complete details click on this link:
  • It was announced this week that President Trump has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for Kosovo-Serbia Agreement. The nomination no doubt is a great honor, but several hundred people worldwide are nominated annually for the prestigious award. Might President Trump win? For complete details click on this link:
  • No doubt the nation has been inundated with violence on our streets. While the causes vary, they all revolve around racial injustice, perceived or real. The rioting, looting, and terrorist acts are political hot potatoes for the November Presidential election. Former NFL Star Herschel Walker has advised Democrat Party nominees Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to, while campaigning, aggressive their present plans to eliminate violence in our cities if elected. For complete details click on this link:
  • Suicide among the American youth has steadily risen in recent years. And the isolation and fear that from the COVID-19 pandemic have caused suicides to skyrocket. Medical professionals expect those statistics to continue to soar. For complete details click on this link:
  • Forest fires in California are NOT unusual. But this year, they’ve gotten way out of hand. With forest fires comes smoke. And the rapid increase of the number and intensity of fires in the Los Angeles area has resulted in the worst smoke and smog in L.A. in 30 years. For complete details click on this link:
  • Conventional wisdom is that all of these protestors are simply a bunch of dissident, anarchist-wannabes that simply seek to find anyway possible to takeout their anger against authority. It turns out that some are just privileged kids who look at protesting as something cool to do! For complete details click on this link:
  • The first half of the 2020 Hurricane Season has set a record. It’s been wild for the Southeast, the Gulf Coast, and even the Atlantic Seaboard so far. But you will not believe how many more storms in the Atlantic are being tracked right now that may become big storms! For complete details click on this link:
  • It’s time for football! The NFL took to the gridiron to kickoff the 2020 season in Kansas City Thursday night. Eighteen thousand fans were allowed to attend the game. A large majority of those fans were too NOT excited about the social justice symbolism seen on the field in pre-game. The reigning SuperBowl champions, the Kansas City Chiefs, were a little shocked at what they heard from their fans. For complete details click on this link:
  • NFL fans who support the two “GOATS” in the game — Tom Brady and Drew Brees — get a chance to see the two go head-to-head Sunday as Tampa Bay (Brady’s new team) takes on the New Orleans Saints. The game will be something brand new for the NFL: there will be NO fans in the stands in New Orleans. How will the fans react? For complete details click on this link:
  • Every nation on Earth is in a rush to get a COVID-19 vaccine created, tested, approved, and on the market, and to be first. Doing so could be worth billions of dollars if not more. China has a vaccine being tested right now. Their testing includes injecting hundreds of thousands of Chinese citizens with the vaccine. How scary must that be for Chinese citizens! Will China win the vaccine race? For complete details, click on this link:

What did YOU miss this week? I bet you, even as close as you watched the important happenings of the week, you missed some important happenings. But, don’t worry: we have a short synopsis of each of the top ten stories you may have missed in our “Bullet Point” format. Read each synopsis. Then, if you want details and a complete story, click on the link to go straight to a story for details.

Let’s get started!

Bullet Points

  • VP Joe Biden has remained pretty much in his basement for months, only occasionally coming out for brief moments, none of which included full press conferences in which members of the media have access to drill the presidential candidate with questions just as they do President Trump. Early in the week, the violence ravishing the country forced Joe to come from hiding. He even met with members of the press Friday and chose to answer a few questions.It was later learned, however, that those questions were prepared and provided to handpicked folks to ask. The press was embarrassingly easy on Uncle Joe! For complete details click on this link:
  • President Trump slipped in and won Pennsylvania in 2016. That swing state has pretty much been a mainstay for Democrats. But Trump sold the ironworkers and energy company employees on his tax cuts and support for their industries. Pennsylvania is in play again. And Thursday night cars were bumper-to-bumper for ten miles as Pennsylvania voters rushed to a MAGA rally held by the President in Latrobe. For complete details click on this link:
  • It’s no secret that Biden has enjoyed a significant lead in most states for most of this election season. Conventional wisdom is that his lead came from a combination of the coronavirus, what the virus has done to the nation economically, and the racial unrest and lawlessness in the streets of major U.S. cities. The mainstream media and a number of Americans feel President Trump has a responsibility — at least in large part — for it all. But it appears that Pennsylvania’s own native son — Joe Biden — has lost that lead he had over Mr. Trump. For complete details, click on this link:
  • By now, everyone heard about Nancy Pelosi’s exclusive trip to her hair salon in San Francisco to have her hair “blown out.” It made front-page news and is STILL in headlines across the U.S. and even overseas! Pelosi’s hypocrisy in using her political connection has angered millions of Americans who are forbidden to partake of similar luxuries. And in San Francisco, salons remain closed to customers — including “special” politicians. In all the uproar, even Pelosi’s daughter has injected herself into the conversation by bringing an attorney into the mix to support the House Speaker! For complete details, click on this link: 
  • People forget that in this current partial-lockdown, churches in most states have been deemed as “non-essential” and have been barred from conducting services. In Nevada, it’s been hypocritical in the eyes of most Americans that casinos have been allowed to reopen with 50% capacity of gamblers. Churches have been restricted to a ridiculous percentage in comparison to casinos. And Nevada citizens are enraged that the governor has not stepped in to aid churches to get back to their service schedules. For complete details click on this link:
  • Isn’t it uncanny that a story as denigrating as is the story of President Trump’s alleged cancellation of a trip from Paris to northern France to a World War I cemetery? The trip was to honor WWI heroes. The story is the alleged cancellation was because it was raining and Mr. Trump didn’t want his hair to be messed up. How could such a devastating story escape this media who foam to get dirt on Mr. Trump for four years? Of course, the source of the story reported by The Atlantic “remains anonymous!” For complete details, click on this link:
  • “It’s the economy, Stupid!” may not be the valid cries that guide Americans on who to vote for in November. Most Americans think the civil unrest on our streets is THE big problem in the nation that whoever serves in the White House must resolve and do so quickly. For complete details click on this link:
  • Most states have marijuana usage laws. It’s usage still violates federal laws. But for the first time, (and while you slept) the U.S. House of Representatives is about to take up consideration of a bill to legalize marijuana. For complete details click on this link:
  • Every Labor Day finds avid car shoppers flooding lots looking for those great steals as model year changeovers are about to happen. Finding those steals will NOT be simple this Labor Day. Why? Dealer inventories are low so the normal need to clear lots of current-year models for new inventory is virtually non-existent. But car prices are MUCH higher than normal! Why? For complete details click on this link:
  • If you and your friends have gone stir crazy because of the lack of fun things to do because of COVID-19, don’t feel you’re alone. Europeans have found a way to deal with it. How? By NOT dealing with it, ignoring it, heading to Greece, and putting on some of the wildest parties Earth has ever seen! Before you buy your ticket to the Mediterranean, click on this link for complete details:
  • Most professional sports leagues have made gambling a no-no for their teams, players, and even some announcers. Of all those sports, the NFL has been the most restrictive. They even put the VooDoo on Tony Romo’s fantasy football convention in Las Vegas! But things, “they are a’ changing.” For complete details click on this link:

It’s Saturday morning as we officially end the ”dog days of Summer.” Let’s start the day by catching up on news you may have missed this week. Check out the short synopsis of each story. If you want more information click on the link.  It’ll take you to a detailed story.

Bullet Points

  • Remember the drug remdesivir that is in clinical trials to prove it’s efficacy in treating coronavirus? Gilead Inc. said on Friday the U.S. Food and Drug Administration expanded the emergency use authorization of its experimental antiviral COVID-19 treatment, remdesivir, to allow its use in all hospitalized COVID-19 patients. For more details click on this link:
  • There’s been a conspiracy theory floated by several Democrat Party leaders and even passed around by Hillary Clinton: if Donald Trump loses to Joe Biden, Trump will refuse to leave the White House. Those promoting this conspiracy maintain the Military will be forced to remove the Trumps. But the top General has totally debunked the theory. For more details click on this link:
  • For forty years Democrats have been pushing for the federal funding of abortions. The Hyde Amendment has prevented federal tax dollars direct use for abortions. However, today’s Dems have made it clear that bypassing the Hyde Amendment is a major piece of legislation in their bullseye for the next year. For more details click on this link:
  • We’ve all heard that when anyone is infected with COVID-19 and makes it through, they have permanent immunity against it. But a Reno, Nevada man may have disproved that theory. At age 25, he was tested positive on April 17. He was treated, got well, and tested negative at the end of April. However, at the end of May he tested positive again. For more details, click on this link:
  • It seems today that for every issue or problem Americans have that has even a smidgeon of anything racial, someone always plays the “race card.” And, of course, anytime that happens it seems there must be a Republican somewhere in the problem. The RNC took the “race card” serious this week in their convention and relied on numerous Americans who debunked that allegation. For more details, click on this link:
  • Many on the Right feel that President Trump’s acceptance speech was one for the ages and certainly was his best yet. He touched on all the bases and made it clear to all that a choice of Biden as President would open Pandora’s Box of chaos on the nation. For more details, click on this link:
  • What’s the true story of climate change? It is certain no one has the real answer though many claim to. Californians have taken the lead on the climate cause, but maybe at their own peril. Once again their state is literally burning. Every “hot” season sees forest fires that not only destroy thousands of acres, but cost Californians dearly in all sorts of ways and does so needlessly. For more details click on this link:
  • There’s no telling how many of the 1400 White House guests were harassed by rioters as they left the White House grounds headed to their homes and hotels after Thursday’s Trump nomination acceptance speech. Television showed Sen. Rand Paul and his wife being confronted aggressively by BLM protestors. For more details click on this link:
  • Most Americans were excited to see and hear the speakers during the RNC that included people from all walks of lives. Those who spoke included pardoned drug offenders, an immigrant who fled Castor’s Cuba, and a host of people of color who believe in the American dream that works for ALL Americans. But many Democrats were NOT ecstatic for those folks to tell their stories. For more details click on this link:
  • I don’t believe the state of Minnesota has ever voted to elect a Republican President. Most believe that string will NOT be broken in November. But, oddly enough, a group of five Minnesota city mayors came out on Friday with their endorsements of President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. For more details, click on this link:

 

Bullet Points: Saturday, August 22, 2020

What a week! The Democrats tried hard to show America that Joe Biden is a worthy candidate to run against the incumbent, President Donald Trump. Was the Democrat National Convention (that was only online) a success? Was Joe Biden shown to be a coherent, logical thinker? Did he share his plan for America? If so, was his plan sufficient to make voters choose him over the President?

Besides the Democrat convention, other things were happening in the nation that are important. Did you miss any? Don’t worry: we have the highlights of the week for you here. Here are headlines from the ten hottest stories of the week. After you read the headline and you still want details of any story, click on the arrow and go directly to an account with complete information. Let’s get started?

Bullet Points

  • Former First Lady spoke at the Democrat Convention in a pre-recorded video. In her address, she painted President Trump as a man without any semblance of good. In doing so, she neglected the tremendous benefits the policies put in place by the Trump Administration have given to members of the African American and other minority communities. One non-partisan expert weighed in on Michelle Obama’s speech. For complete details, click on this link:
  • Hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico are pretty common. We’re in the 2020 hurricane season. There are hurricanes that have already attacked the U.S. But there’s something new coming up in the Gulf of Mexico: apparently two hurricanes are headed to the Gulf — AT THE SAME TIME! For complete details, click on this link:
  • There’s a big U.S. Senate race afoot in Massachusetts. It’s a big deal primarily because there’s a Kennedy from the famous Kennedy family who is taking on an entrenched incumbent. And House Speaker Pelosi has come out and endorsed the Kennedy family member in his race against Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA). For complete details, click on this link:
  • Ghislane Maxwell — Epstein’s “woman”– just recently completed an in-depth deposition in which she apparently named names and details of contact between young women and high-level political individuals. Her lawyers have asked an attorney to keep details secret! Why? The lawyers say if details become public, their client will NOT receive a fair trail! For complete details,  click on this link:
  • Facebook (according to “anonymous” sources within the company) have diligently been working on plans of how the social platform will respond if President Trump refuses to accept the results of the November election! I don’t remember hearing any plans implemented after the 2016 election when Hillary began (and continues to this day) to claim that “Russians put Trump in office.” This is a crazy one, folks! For complete details, click on this link:
  • It will be interesting to see if Democrats will allow Joe Biden to campaign to the hard left, (Green New Deal, Single-payer healthcare, free college, open borders, huge tax increases, etc.) but in his nomination acceptance speech expect his party to forget his commitments to the far-left crowd and just accept the fact that even though he’s lying to one part of the party, he’s still the right choice. That’s what he’s doing! For complete details, click on this link:
  • It’s going to see how the restrictive COVID-19 California government handle the rash of deadly forest fires that are raging already and are certain to increase in number. Governor Gavin Newsom may have to release some of restrictions for firefighters to do their jobs. Those who spends days and weeks out in the forests fighting these wildfires cannot realistically adhere to social distancing requirements nor to face-covering rules. Do you think Newsom will be sending out fine notifications? For complete details, click on this link:
  • A former Army Green Beret has been charged with being a Russian agent and has been passing along classified information to Russia for several decades. The Russian intelligence agencies worked so closely with him they gave him his own intelligence name. For complete details, click on this link:
  • There’s trouble brewing between the nation of Venezuela and the U.S. Venezuela Strongman Maduro refuses to allow American citizens who are in Venezuela to leave to return to the U.S. The number of Americans who are stuck in the horrors of Venezuela struggle to find some way to leave the country. For complete details, click on this link:
  • One would think that in the bleak portrayal of the United States by the Left in the midst of our COVID-19 pandemic that NO ONE would even think about buying a home. But it appears that plenty either disagree with the “sky is falling” narrative that’s being banged into their heads by the media — enough so to see home sales spike 24.7% in June-July sales!

Bullet Points

  • Election day is about 80 days away. And many Americans are petrified about going to vote. After all, COVID-19 has us all scared to death. While Democrats continue to demand mail-in voting to save us all from viral death, the Champion of the Left, Dr. Anthony Fauci, stepped up on Friday and saved us all! He announced that NO ONE needs to fear going to vote on November 3rd. For complete details, click on this link:
  • With the announcement of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) as Joe Biden’s running mate, speculation abounds: can Biden make it physically? Will it make it through two terms as president? Wait: how about just ONE term? Speculation is that there is a real possibility he would NOT make it even to the election! Obviously, if that happened, the responsibility would fall on the shoulders of the Vice President (or the person running as his VP partner) to step in and fill the shoes. But if that happened, who would replace Kamala as Vice President? A famous former senator stepped up and threw “HER” hat into the ring. For complete details, click on this link:
  • It’s taken over a year, but Federal Attorney John Durham, who was tasked to undertake an investigation of members of the Obama Administration for wrongdoing in the Russia Collusion case, on Friday rolled out his first federal criminal indictment in the case. Former FBI attorney Kevin Clinesmith was indicted for criminally changing an email that was used in a FISA warrant application that authorized spying on a member of the Trump Campaign. For complete details, click on this link:
  • Sadly, America’s mainstream media almost totally ignored what may be the most important agreement signed between three Middle East countries in the last century! President Trump quietly brought together two former bitter enemies who signed a peace deal that no one on Earth anticipated. The United Arab Emirates and Israel signed a deal that experts agree will alter the course of pretty much everything between the two countries. For complete details, click on this link:
  • In several parts of the country, public and private schools alike have already welcomed students back to school: IN PERSON! Many other schools have already (or are in the planning stages) of conducting all or part of class studies online. Sadly, some schools have decided to close for the school year. But educators and healthcare officials are adamant: “Our kids need to get back to school.” For complete details, click on this link:
  • Many on the political left are rabidly pushing in some of the nation’s largest cities for the defunding of the police. But most Americans when polled are horrified at the thought: Who would stop crime? Who would we see show up when we call 911? Would ANYONE show up when we call 911? For complete details, click on this link:
  • Despite what Sleepy Joe has been telling the nation for a year, things “ain’t so rosy” between the president-wannabe and his former boss. Even though former President Obama endorsed Biden for the top spot, he has throughout this year had serious problems with his former VP. For more details click on this link:
  • Several states have joined the five other states who have been voting totally by mail for some years in planning on voting entirely by mail on November 3rd. But there’s a problem: several are swing states. And officials are warning that in some of these swing states, their ballots may not arrive in time to be counted! For complete details, click on this link:
  • Well, guess what? The USPS has warned states from coast to coast, every state that plans to use mail-in ballots may find THEIR ballots do not reach offices of voter registrars in time to be counted! This news came out late Friday. Just imagine how frantic will be those Democrat Party leaders that have so vehemently demanded mail-in voting. For complete details, click on this link:
  • Here’s a story that I’m certain you missed and one that is really surprising. President Vladimir Putin on Friday called on the permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany to convene an emergency Iran summit to avoid an escalation of tensions in the Gulf. For complete details, click on this link:

Saturday Bullet Points, August 8, 2020

The craziness in our nation simply will not stop. I have it on good authority, (MY amazing intuitiveness!) that between today and Election Day, it will only get crazier. My advice to you is to “buckle up.” Find a way to get and stay safe until the election furor subsides. Unfortunately, it looks like that may not happen before the end of the year. Can you imagine a scenario in which Santa drops by the Post Office and is pictured counting mail-in ballots to help out for Christmas? Let’s hope we see nothing like that.

Until then, our job is to keep you informed about some of the things you’ve missed in news during your busy days. Maybe you’ve seen or heard these stories, but the “explanations” you were given with the stories was not quite accurate. TruthNewsNetwork is always ready to give you clear and concise information on which you can comfortably rely.

Let’s get started with our bullet-point summary of the big stories from this week you may have missed. Just read the first several lines in our bullet-point and click on the arrow link if you want to read the complete details of each story.

Bullet Points

  • It seems that the Democrats have taken the ax to the invited speakers for their upcoming convention. Because of the changes forced on Democrats by the unknown but certain threats from COVID-19, much of their convention will be virtual. As they edit their normally lengthy invited-speaking guests, one Democrat rising star has been shown the door: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was disinvited! For more details, click on this link:
  • It’s certain that most Americans are concerned about some apparent cognitive issues being displayed regularly in public speeches by Joe Biden. But almost just as magnetic for the same Americans is the question: “Who will be the pick to run as Vice President on the Joe Biden ticket?” We were told last week it’s down to two, but it now seems like the list has enlarged a bit! For more details, click on this link:
  • The U.S. job report released Friday gave Americans a “bit” of news: not “great” news, but certainly not “bad.” Almost 2 million jobs were created last month. But there’s much more to look to. For those complete details, click on this link:
  • In all of the uproar that captures our attention, one very important element of American life that has simply been forgotten is Broadway. COVID-19 attacked Broadway at the same time it attacked you. We have been told that already hundreds of American companies that closed “temporarily” during the lockdown have announced they will NOT be coming back. But have you thought about Broadway? It may be gone, Too! For complete details, click on this link:
  • Has your mail delivery seemed to slow down a bit in the last month or so? There’s a reason for it. The U.S. Postmaster issued a change last month that certainly slowed some mail delivery: he canceled overtime for postal workers. Both Democrats and Republicans alike in Congress are enraged, especially with the upcoming November election and certainly with more votes being process through the mail. For complete details, click on this link:
  • We stopped hearing stories about massive illegal immigration from below our southern border. Why is that? Apparently our U.S. Customs agents and the partial border wall have been effective so far. But that doesn’t mean they’ve stopped trying to find ways to get over the border! In fact, what is deemed to be the most advanced tunnel ever from Mexico to the U.S. has just been discovered. It’s mindboggling how technologically advanced is this tunnel. For complete details, click on this link:
  • The thought that the next international major attack on American would come in the form of some process of destroying all or part of our electric grid. In fact, there are books and movies that have used that scary thought as a central topic in their offering. Many thought what happened Thursday night in New York City might have been such an attack, or, if not an attack, a “dry-run.” For complete details, click on this link:
  • COVID-19 has viciously attacked every sector of our lives — not just in healthcare. Seldom considered when thinking through the economic tragedies from the virus is the media advertising industry. Billions of dollars are spent promoting all types of things year-round and 24/7 in various types of U.S. media formats. But what about the people who work in the advertising business? Many of them have lost their jobs, too. And that means they’re probably finding it tough to replace that old job. It is. For complete details, click on this link:
  • Many U.S. employers are in panic-mode about their employees. They probably should be. Many are finding employees are slow to return to their jobs, even as the lockdown here has ended. They should be concerned if they look toward Briton. Employees who worked from home during the lockdown have become accustomed to doing so and a larger number than expected are simply wanting to work “from the house.” For complete details, click on this link:
  • We’ve known for years that the state of Utah is one of the strictest states at enforcing laws including requiring criminal offenders to serve more of their sentences than in most other states. Utah has turned up the heat even hotter! It seems that some of the laws broken in the state by Black Lives Matter protestors regarding violence during protests actually carry a potential “LIFE” sentence! For complete details, click on this link:

Summary

Bullet Points

  • Floridians reside in the bullseye of “Hurricane Alley,” especially Miami. And Hurricane Isaias is headed right at Miami. The Mayor has issued today some warnings for all those in the area to make preparation for any and all of the possible outcomes of Isias’ visit this weekend. For complete details, click on this link:
  • There are many concerns about Coronavirus and its impact on just about every part of our lives. Sports — professional and otherwise — are critical in the minds of millions of Americans. Summer and Fall professional sports are fighting to find ways to conduct their games as best as possible while trying to mitigate exposure to Coronavirus. Some of Major League Baseball just threw in the towel. But just around the corner are high school and college Fall sports. What’s likely going to happen? How will Coronavirus affect the attendance and revenue of each of these sports? For complete details, click on this link:
  • Remember the atrocities that occurred at the 2013 Boston Marathon? Who can forget the live video horrors a bomb exploding close to the finish line and dozens of people falling at the hands of a terrorist bomb? Guess what, a judge in the case of one of the two perpetrators who lived to face the law for his travesty just got a “get out of jail” card. For complete details, click on this link:
  • Who hasn’t heard of the chaos at the Ellen DeGeneres Show? All kinds of complaints have been made by staffers at every level of her show. This includes hundreds of workers that viewers never see and therefore never think about. Ellen appears to be THE nicest person on Planet Earth! But, if one listens to the complaints, the truth may actually be something different. She apologized publicly to everyone. You know, that’s what “Cancel Culture” demands!
