Quick Glance: J.D. Vance Backed National Abortion Ban in Most Disgusting Manner
  • In 2022, Senate candidate J.D. Vance discussed the necessity of a national abortion ban with Aimee Terese to prevent George Soros from flying 'black women' to California for abortions.

  • Vance expressed support for a national abortion ban multiple times, including endorsing a 15-week plan proposed by Sen. Lindsey Graham as 'totally reasonable'.

  • Despite being inaccurately portrayed by The New York Times as opposing a national abortion ban, Vance's history as an anti-abortion hardliner, equating abortion to slavery, remains a significant part of his political background.

  • Vance's criticism of a state-by-state approach to abortion policy as cruel and not moderate is exemplified by stories like that of a 10-year-old girl in Ohio who had to travel to Indiana for an abortion after a crime, showcasing the real-world implications of such policies.

Quick Glance: Dow reaches new high with over 700 points increase
  • The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at a record high Tuesday and saw an increase of 743 points, marking its largest one-day gain in over a year.

  • These positive developments occurred amidst a broader rally driven by stronger-than-expected June retail sales data, robust earnings reports, and the anticipation of a benchmark interest rate cut by the Federal Reserve in September.

  • One standout performer was UnitedHealth, whose stock surged 6.5 percent after reporting better-than-expected results for the second quarter, contributing to the Dow's upward movement.

  • Following last week's less-than-expected inflation report, the market has bounced back. The Dow hit its previous record on Monday after Federal Reserve Chair Jerome H. Powell expressed confidence that recent data indicates inflation is heading towards the central bank's 2 percent target.

Jury Convicts NJ Senator Bob Menendez of Taking Bribes from Egypt & Qatar
Quick Glance: Senator Bob Menendez Convicted, Schumer Calls for Resignation
  • Democratic Senator Bob Menendez was convicted of corruption after accepting bribes from three New Jersey businessmen and acting as a foreign agent for the Egyptian government.

  • Menendez and two businessmen were found guilty of accepting bribes for personal gain. The verdict came after a nine-week trial that proved the senator abused his position to protect allies and enrich himself.

  • The guilty verdict could force Menendez to resign from his Senate seat, as most Democratic senators have already called for his resignation. He faces the possibility of a lengthy prison sentence, and his political future seems uncertain.

  • The senator will be sentenced on October 29 and could receive up to 20 years in prison for the most serious charges. Evidence showed that Menendez had abused his Senate position to support Egypt and benefit personally, leading to a damning verdict.
