VERBATIM: That includes replacing systems that in some cases are more than 50 years old. Until each of those programs is ready, it’s up to young military troops and government technicians across the U.S. to care for the existing bombs. That will often be done through delicate maintenance performed by hand.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer [D-NY] is laying the groundwork to blame House Republicans for an expected government shutdown at the end of the month. In a letter to his Democrat colleagues Schumer writes that any shutdown will be the result f what he calls “political games” by House Republicans. Fiscal House conservatives are demanding 2024 spending cuts deeper than those already agreed to by Republican House Speaker Kevin McCarthy and the white house. And they’ve vowed not to budge, even if the budget stalemate leads to a shutdown at the end of September. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell has said the senate GOP will not support House bills demanding the deeper than agreed upon cuts.Listen Download

The former President is kicking off his 2024 campaign with two stops along the East Coast. More from Correspondent Bernie Bennett.
Former President Donald Trump kicked off his 2024 White House bid with a stop Saturday in New Hampshire before heading to South Carolina, appearances in early-voting states marking the first campaign events since announcing his latest run more than two months ago.
Those states hold two of the party’s first three nominating contests, giving them enormous power in selecting the nominee.
Mr. Trump and his allies hope the events will offer a show of force behind the former president after a sluggish start to his campaign. In recent weeks, his backers have reached out to political operatives and elected officials to secure support for Mr. Trump at a critical point when other Republicans are preparing their own expected challenges.

Promise Keepers is getting canceled
VERBATIM: The popular Christian men’s organization is having trouble finding places to hold its events. In June, a planned Promise Keepers event at Belmont University in Nashville was canceled when the private Christian school expressed concern over the fact that Promise Keepers rejects the LGBT agenda. Hope Church in Cordova, Tennessee, and The Fountain of Praise Church in Houston have also canceled Promise Keepers events for similar reasons. Michael Harrington, SRN News.
