Saturday Bullet Points: February 10, 2024

This week was capped off by our President, who defied his staff and their instructions and demanded to deliver a response to the Special Council’s report released Friday regarding Biden’s illegal possession of hundreds of thousands of classified documents. (Biden should have listened to his staff members!) Joe humiliated himself as I’ve never seen him do.

In that speech, President Biden quickly launched into “attack” mode. He denied every substantive element of the Council’s 300-page synopsis! It was as if he didn’t care about the report’s contents. He spoke more as a child than as our octogenarian President.

But that wasn’t nearly all the critical events of the week. We capture them all and include the week’s top stories in this weekly offering to all of our readers: “Saturday Bullet Points.” In it, you’ll see many bullet points. Read the several sentences that explain the substance of that story. If you want to see complete details in a whole story, click on the blue arrow, and that’s what you’ll see.

Bullet Points

  • What better place to begin today’s important stories than with President Biden himself? Watch his speech. Don’t leave until you see and hear the several minutes of questions and answers with the media immediately following the speech. It will rock you to see how “inadequate” Joe Biden is. And he’s undoubtedly not drawing people to him with his speeches and his heart’s content!

  • The President proved to tens of millions that his cognitive abilities had drastically declined by making that speech. It seems to many that the decline has rapidly sped up over the past year or so. Thursday’s speech shocked many. Why? Because the rumors about his slipping memory and slurred speech have ramped up much faster than most thought possible. Stories and polls are everywhere in the aftermath of that speech. A HUGE percentage of Americans feel his ability to serve as President for four more years is out of the question. For complete details, click on this link:
  • Most presidential campaigns have at least one weekly conference call to discuss details from that week and the plans for the weekend and the week ahead. It makes good sense to stay on top of the events of the week and their impact on voters. Friday’s call by the Biden Campaign staff quickly got sidetracked. (I bet you cannot guess why!) Senator John Fetterman and Representative Maxwell Frost fielded the questions on the call. Reportedly, after the opening remarks by the pair, the call quickly went downhill. Why? Imagine if you were a volunteer Biden Campaign staffer who committed a large swath of your life to work to get the sitting president re-elected. You watched and listened to his response to the Special Counsel’s report. How would you feel? For complete details on his staffers and how THEY feel about their candidate now, click on this link:
  • One other colossal event happened on Thursday. The U.S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS) held a public meeting to address Former President Donald Trump’s appeal to the Court regarding Colorado’s intentions to leave Trump off Colorado’s 2024 Presidential ballot. ALL Americans were highly interested in the Court’s outcome. Why? Their call on THIS election issue will permanently alter our national election process or will codify that only Congress has the authority to address any presidential candidate’s possible removal from an election. It was felt by most that this would be a nasty political battle between conservatives and Democrat Justices. Those people and many others were shocked to see that the Democrat-leaning members were just as “pushy” to Colorado’s attorney as were the Conservative Justices. Their ruling is expected in a few short weeks because “Super Tuesday” is approaching. How did it turn out? For complete details, click on this link:
  • Now that you watched President Biden’s address in question today, what is your take on his run for re-election? From what you witnessed, do you believe he is in a state of mind sufficient for him to perform the exhaustive presidential obligations of office for four more years? Imagine for a moment YOUR answer to that question. Now, consider how our foreign allies and their citizens feel about the possibility of a President Biden for four more years. After watching Joe’s speech, the U.K.’s own Maureen Callahan of Daily Mail weighed in with her thoughts. And she makes demonstrative statements about what should happen about his continued service.

  • Former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley weighed in on what she saw Thursday night from the President. Though Haley remains (so far) Donald Trump’s only challenger for the GOP nomination for President, she has yet to win a GOP primary. Conventional wisdom is that Haley — and any other candidate facing her odds of winning the nomination — should withdraw before being embarrassed in her own state’s Primary. (Trump dramatically leads her in her own state) She showed the nation what she thinks about Biden at this point. And her response not only suggested Joe Biden should “move on,” she included Donald Trump in the same sentence: “I have long said the first party to retire its 80-year-old candidate will win the White House,” Haley said in a statement. She, of course, had much more to share. For complete details, click on this link:
  • FOX News’ Stuart Varney had Rachel Campos-Duffy on his show Friday morning. Varney asked Duffy for her thoughts on what President Biden should do now in the wake of that embarrassing press “speech” on Thursday evening:

  • Joe Biden’s ragged speech was not the only positive event for the Republicans this week. You may not realize, but Maryland has an open Senate seat. Maryland Governor Larry Hogan (R-MD) announced Friday he will run to fill that seat! Hogan was well-liked in Maryland, although he is often considered a “RINO” – “Republican In Name Only.” It was expected that, if he ran, he’d run on as a third-party candidate. This news comes as a boost for the GOP. He would be a helpful addition to the Senate GOP if he gets elected. For complete details, click on this link:
  • I think the most “off-his-rocker” member of the U.S. House of Representatives is Dan Goldman (D-NY). In his plethora of Q&As with witnesses in House Committee Hearings, he always seems to find ways to denigrate each witness who is not a Democrat. His default position for asking questions is to attack rather than ask questions. Friday, Goldman was a guest on a CNN show when host Phil Mattingly cut him off as Goldman pontificated about President Biden’s gaffes in his Thursday evening speech. Goldman is one of those guys who acts like he always needs to get the last word. This time, it got tough for him. For complete details, click on this link:
  • Sunday’s Super Bowl LVIII is already setting records — even days before the kickoff. It is projected that more people are placing more bets than ever on the big game! In 2023, gamblers bet $16 billion on the game. This year, the projected total will be somewhere around $23.1 billion! This year’s estimated number of bettors has increased by 35% from the previous Super Bowl. That fits well for the event. Why? The game is being played in Las Vegas for the very first time! There are more “firsts” in this game. For complete details, click on this link:
