TAKEOFF,

Good Morning! On this day in 1922, U.S. swimmer Johnny Weissmuller set a world record by swimming the 100-meter freestyle in just 58.6 seconds, becoming the first person to swim the event in less than one minute. Later, Weissmuller starred in a series of Tarzan films. Hear the legendary Tarzan call here.

With the GOP convention just a week away, former President Trump will soon name his running mate. We’re not taking sides, but we’re interested in who you think he should choose! Let us know in our poll below.

TAKEOFF,

Biden Tells Dems to Unite Behind Him,

President Biden sent a letter to congressional Democrats on Monday, telling lawmakers he would not step down and demanding the party unite behind his leadership.

In the letter, linked here, Biden wrote that he has had conversations with party leaders, elected officials, and voters and believes he is “the best person to beat Donald Trump in 2024.”

Biden also called into a morning news show on Monday and blasted the party “elites” trying to push him out, saying the average voter wants him to stay in the race.

A recent poll found that 72% of registered voters want Biden to exit the race, up from 63% in February.

Boeing to Plead Guilty for 737 Max Crashes,

Boeing is set to plead guilty to criminal fraud conspiracy related to the fatal crashes of two 737 MAX airplanes in 2018 and 2019.

Under the plea deal, pending a federal judge’s approval, the company would face a $243.6 million fine and three years’ oversight by a corporate probation monitor.

Additionally, Boeing must invest $455 million in compliance and safety programs and agree to board meetings with crash victims’ families.

The guilty plea gives Boeing a criminal conviction, which may complicate its ability to secure future government contracts. Those deals accounted for 32% of its $78 billion annual revenue in 2023.

Beryl Leaves Millions Without Power,

Hurricane Beryl hit Texas Monday, killing two and leaving more than 2 million people and businesses without power in the Houston area and knocking down hundreds of trees.

Beryl was downgraded to a tropical storm soon after making landfall, but the National Hurricane Center said high winds and flash flooding would continue as the storm pushed inland. It was one of the earliest hurricanes to hit Texas.

Forecasters have issued tornado watches and warnings across Texas, Louisiana, and Arkansas for the next day or two as the storm winds down. Here’s a list of cities under tornado warnings.

POLITICS,

House Democrats are expected to convene at party headquarters today after several lawmakers publicly called for President Biden to resign. Members were instructed not to bring their cell phones.

The RNC passed a draft party platform on Monday that shifts the GOP’s stance on abortion, trade, immigration, and foreign policy to mirror former President Trump’s positions on the issues.

Former President Trump has narrowed down his list of potential running mates and may announce his decision this week, according to a campaign official who described the candidates as an “embarrassment of riches.”

A Philadelphia radio host who interviewed President Biden last week was fired from her station after admitting the Biden campaign gave her questions in advance.

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

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. https:// payhip.com Christian NonFictione BookStore then scroll down and click on Interactive Romans Road King James Version,
