Out-cue: two U.S. banks]
TAG: Correspondent Jeremy House reporting.
VERBATIM: The Swiss Department of Finance says federal law allows the government to set “remuneration-related measures” in cases involving Switzerland’s biggest banks. Authorities in Switzerland scrambled late last week and this past weekend to cobble together a $3.25 billion sale of Credit Suisse to UBS. An outflow of deposits and years of trouble raised fears that it could fail and trigger an international financial crisis after the collapse of two U.S. banks.

GOP Hopefuls Gather In South Carolina
Republicans who are seeking to lead their party in the 2024 presidential race are gathering in South Carolina this weekend. And they’re promoting a goal that’s at the forefront of their agenda — namely, taking on “woke ideology.” The Vision ’24 event in North Charleston is being held by the group Palmetto Family, which lobbies for what it considers to be “biblical values.” Organizers are describing the gathering as “casting the conservative vision” for the next White House race. More than 400 attendees are expected to hear from presidential hopefuls, including a former South Carolina governor who was Donald Trump’s U.N. ambassador, and tech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy.Listen Download

Former President Trump Kicks Off Campaign Events
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.

Even an atheist has figured transgenderism out
Even an atheist has figured transgenderism out
VERBATIM: Richard Dawkins is one of the most visible non-believers on the planet. The evolutionary biologist is the go-to guest for any program that’s seeking an atheist to heap scorn on Christians. But Dawkins, appearing on a recent Piers Morgan program, stated clearly that there are ONLY two sexes — male and female. Dawkins says “It’s incontrovertible, there’s no scientific doubt about this, and yet a small group of people have reshaped the way society talks and is allowed to talk.” Michael Harrington, SRN News.
