Saturday Bullet Points: April 1, 2023

Who does NOT know that this past week was a week full of big stories: especially the biggest story of the past few months: Donald Trump’s indictment by New York District Attorney Alvin Bragg. Most legal experts thought it would never happen because of the plethora of irregularities in the substance of what the indictment applies to. Oh well: there’s no way to predict what a grand jury is likely to do when they NEVER hear any evidence or testimony from the defense, nor do defense attorneys have a right to cross examine witnesses.

Believe it or not, there were some OTHER big stories of the week. Let’s take a look at the gambit of the big stories of the week to make certain you didn’t miss ANY important news!

Let’s get started with….

Bullet Points

  • We may be witnessing a unity in the Republican Party not seen in a while. For Director of National Intelligence and Ambassador to Germany, Ric Grennell has asked for every GOP presidential candidate to drop out of the race and throw their support to former President Donald Trump. Why? To speak to Democrats, Republicans and other independents saying that conservatives CAN unify around the “right” candidate. For complete details, click on this link:
  • Late night network talk show hosts are taking glee in this story about Donald Trump’s indictment. Trump arch enemy Jimmy Kimmel ranted and raved about Trump’s pending showdown with Prosecutor Alvin Bragg. “Wait until Donald Trump learns he can be silent,” he quipped. Stephen Colbert also took shots at the former President. For complete details, click on this link:
  • Is it just me or are there an unusual rash of serious devastating storms ripping the nation’s midriff the past few weeks? The latest victim is the capital city of Arkansas, Little Rock. One devastating tornado tore through the city, killing at least three with at least 600 other injured! Additionally, there was a massive swath of destruction in the tornado’s path.

  • Most Americans looked on in shock as Silicone Valley Bank experienced a run by its depositers that led to its total failure. Several other banks experienced the same, but at a lesser degree. The tens of millions of lost dollars from these failures is shining a light on our entire banking system. One financial expert from the staff of New York University dropped a truth bomb about our banking system on Thursday: some other banks are on the brink of failures while “most” U.S. banks are already insolvent! For complete details, click on this link:
  • A massive number of Americans may soon be in dire financial straits if one prediction published by the Wall Street Journal hold true. Our Social Security System which funds the retirements of tens of millions of American seniors appears to be running out of money quickly — more quickly than even conservative projections indicated just several years ago. Social Security is funded by employer payroll deductions. More dollars are being paid now than are being withheld from the declining number of American workers. How long does it appear that Social Security can last before reaching insolvency. For complete details, click on this link:
  • Earthquakes in Southern California have become commonplace. A rather “mild” quake shook San Diego that could be felt in several counties between San Diego and Orange County — the largest county in the state. Geologists say there is NO expected tsunami. How bad was the quake and and are there additional expected quakes in that area? For complete details, click on this link:
  • Details from Ukraine about day-to-day happenings are scarce in the invasion by Russia of Ukraine. What’s that saying, “No news is good news?” Apparently, that saying is not applicable to the Ukrainian war with Russia. Putin’s forces are suffering such tremendous numbers of Russians killed in the war that he has called up another 147,000 Russian troops! What does that portend for Ukraine?
