Out-cue: paid by consumers]
TAG: Correspondent Jeremy House reporting. Booking’s brands include Booking.com, Rentalcars, Priceline and Agoda.
VERBATIM: The European Commisson says the deal would have allowed Booking to increase its dominant position on the market on the continent. The Commission says it warned Booking Holdings about its concerns, but that the remedies offered by the company were not sufficient. An investigation by the Commission found out the proposed 1.8 billion dollar deal would have led to higher costs for hotels, and possibly, a negative impact on the price paid by consumers.

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.

A new poll provides insight into non-Christians and their beliefs about God
VERBATIM: It comes from the Barna Group and it reveals that amongst non-believers in this country, 58% have faith in some kind of higher power. Only 21% of non-Christians state categorically that there is NO God. In fact, nearly 30% agree with the statement that God is “the all-powerful, all-knowing perfect creator of the universe who rules the world today.” Barna researchers say the number indicate that many non-believers would be open to the gospel.
