Monday Morning Minute – RedState

Good morning, and welcome to RedState’s “Morning Minute” — a brief glimpse at which stories are trending at the moment and a look ahead at what the day may bring. Consider this your one-stop shop for news to kickstart your day. Wow, Monday came at us fast…


Biden Reveals He Has No Idea When He Was VP, and What He Called J6 People at NAACP Dinner Is Hilarious

He’s so far gone at this point, it’s truly concerning.

This Graph on the Economy May Be the Most Damaging for Biden for the 2024 Election

Joe can talk all he wants, but this is the reality. There’s a reason he’s hemorrhaging voters, and why states no one thought would be in play are now in play.

Judge Aileen Cannon Is Concerned, Disappointed in Jack Smith’s Treatment of Sealed Materials

Not a banner day for Jack Smith. 


Today on Capitol Hill…

As it’s Monday, there aren’t a lot of hearings set — only one, in fact: The House Ways and Means Subcommittee on Tax is hosting a field hearing in Erie, Pennsylvania, on “Creating More Opportunity and Prosperity in the American Rust Belt.”

No word yet on whether a food fight is scheduled in the House Dining Room. 

White House What’s Up

President Joe Biden will return to Washington, D.C., from Wilmington. In the evening, he and Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff will speak at a Jewish American Heritage Month event at the White House.

So, it’s possible the evidence will be complete by the end of the day. 

Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) will be in court in the Southern District of New York (just a few blocks away) for the start of week two of his criminal trial. 

Across the pond, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange faces a hearing in the UK’s high court that will determine whether he is extradited to the United States to stand trial on espionage charges.
