THE FLYOVER,

TAKEOFF,

Democrats Back Off Forcing Biden Out,

President Biden remained in control of his fate Tuesday despite anxieties expressed in separate closed-door meetings by House and Senate Democrats discussing the viability of his candidacy.

House Democrats met for two hours in a lopsided debate that favored staying the course with Biden. One report suggested the president, at least for now, has quieted party calls for him to step down. So far, six House Democrats have publicly called on Biden to end his candidacy.

Senate Democrats were more secretive in their discussions. Many avoided questions about the president or his health afterward, saying they were focused on winning. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer simply said, “I’m with Joe.”

The New York Times editorial board doubled down on its call for Biden to get out of the race, writing that Biden was “embarrassing himself and endangering his legacy.”

Hackers Leak Billions of Passwords,

In the largest password leak in history, a massive compilation of nearly 10 billion unique passwords was posted on a prominent hacking forum on July 4.

The leak, dubbed RockYou2024, is primarily a compilation of previously leaked password databases with 1.5 billion new additions. Still, analysts warn it could contribute to a cascade of data breaches, financial fraud, and identity theft.

Experts say if you find your password has been leaked (you can use this leaked password tool to check), immediately reset passwords on all associated accounts with strong and unique passwords, enable multi-factor authentication wherever possible, and utilize password manager software.

Before we go let me tell you about one of the books found on my Bookstore,

Go to https:// payhip.com/ Christian NonFiction eBookStore then scroll down and click on Interactive Romans Road – King James Version,

Long Ago, when the Roman Empire was at the height of its glory, a common saying was “All Roads Lead to Rome.” I want to tell you about a very special road — a road that existed then and still exists now. This road, now almost 2,000 years old, has never led to Rome. Yet, strangely enough, it is called the Romans Road.

This takes the reader to selected passages in the Book of Romans in the Bible to explain the plan of Salvation. This is the ideal way to share the gospel using your Kindle. The reader can also read the entire book of Romans un-interrupted.
