Today is July 12. Below are some of the stories grabbing headlines this morning. I hope you share this briefing as doing so will make you the smartest person in the room.
1. Biden to discuss immigration, trade with Mexico’s president
AP News – President Joe Biden plans to meet with Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador on Tuesday for discussions the White House says will showcase the underlying strength of a relationship that of late has been more notable for the leaders’ disagreements on issues including energy and Ukraine policy.
López Obrador declined Biden’s invitation to the Summit of the Americas in Los Angeles last month after unsuccessfully urging the U.S. to include the leaders of Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela — all countries with anti-democratic regimes. The Mexican leader also has called U.S. support for Ukraine in its war with Russia “a crass error” and criticized the U.S. for moving more swiftly to provide military funding to Ukraine than financial aid to Central America.
There also are political crosscurrents in Washington, where top Republicans have pointed to a rising number of people from Mexico and Central America crossing the southern U.S. border illegally and have criticized the Democratic president’s administration for not doing more to curb the migration.
MY OPINION: This will be the second in-person meeting at the White House between Biden and Obrador, and it will yield nada. I wonder if Jill will be serving tacos…
2. Doomsday political scenario takes shape for Democrats
The Hill -The midterm election doomsday scenario for Democrats is becoming clearer, scarier, and more real as inflation and gas prices remain stubbornly high and dissatisfaction with President Biden is through the roof.
Democrats are seeing their chances of retaining the House slimmer than ever, with both history and the dreary political environment working against them. In the Senate, where the party had hoped strong swing state candidates could help save the majority, fears are also growing.
The high national anxiety — which many lawmakers, operatives, and activists are now openly acknowledging as problematic — was further laid bare when a poll released by the New York Times found that just 13 percent of voters surveyed think the country is on the right path. More strikingly, 64 percent of Democratic voters want someone other than Biden as their nominee in 2024.
While social issues remain important to activists and others in Democratic circles, economic issues topped the list of topics voters care about more than anything, building on a trend that’s endured cycle after cycle.
MY OPINION: The Dems are doomed. They can’t separate themselves from the White House and the economy. No chance. Watch this young voter explain why she regrets her vote.
3. Screaming Activists Occupy Ritzy Beach Towns
DAILY CALLER – Left-wing activists affiliated with New York Communities For Change (NYCFC) launched disruptive protests over the weekend in several beach towns as part of the organization’s “#OccupyTheHamptons” demonstrations.
NYCFC protested on behalf of “climate action & green, social housing for all,” according to its Twitter page. Activists criticized wealthy Hamptonites as “directly responsible for the results of climate change” while sporting banners calling for governments to “tax the rich,” footage posted to Twitter shows.
Protestors blocked streets and marched on “billionaire’s row,” a section of the Long Island beach community that is home to some of the wealthiest individuals in the United States.

MY OPINION: Good grief. Go home. Get a J.O.B.
4. Nearly half of Republican primary voters want someone other than Trump – with DeSantis getting half as much support as the former president in new poll
Daily Mail – Former President Donald Trump continues to lead all challengers in a poll of Republican voters – but with nearly half of GOP voters saying they prefer someone else.
And the poll reveals a sizable chunk – 16 per cent – of Republicans who say they would vote for President Joe Biden if Trump is the party nominee.
The New York Times / Sienna College poll comes as Trump continues to try to assert his dominance within the party, picking favorites in key primaries and trying to defeat Republicans who voted to impeach him.
Trump gets the support of 49 per cent of Republican voters who are asked to name their preferred candidate in the poll.
That doubles up support over his top rival, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who party insiders view as the most potent threat to him.
MY OPINION: Just give me a GOP candidate with a strong border policy and who won’t cave to the woke mobs.
5. Fired Disney employees sue company over alleged religious discrimination: ‘They think they’re above the law’
FOX News – Former Florida Disney employees Barbara Andreas and Stephen Cribb are suing the entertainment giant citing allegations of religious discrimination after their COVID-19 vaccine and mask exemptions were glossed over.
“I wish I could say [Disney] responded [to my exemption request] with diversity and inclusion like they preach, but unfortunately, we were met with a lot of silence, a lot of backlash, a lot of retaliation,” Andreas told Fox News’ Carley Shimkus Tuesday.
Andreas, who served as a guest experience manager at the ESPN sports complex during her time with Disney, expounded on the controversy along with Cribb and attorney Carroll Sanders on “Fox & Friends First” early Tuesday.
Cribb, who was fired from the company in March, followed Andreas’ story with his own, sharing that the company’s human resources department reached out to him and refused to speak once he asked if his attorney could be present during the call.
MY OPINION: Praying they win!
