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. 



Trump-Hater Mark Cuban Gets Scammed for Second Time in a Year, Posts His Self-Own—Then Deletes It

I'm not sure his reputation can take many more "I was scammed by a Nigerian Princess" moments.

Lee Zeldin Says Trump Is Closer to Winning New York Now Than He Was

If Zeldin campaigns with Trump in the Empire State, he could have the best chance as a GOP presidential nominee in decades to put up a fight in New York.

Serial Man-Dumper Taylor Swift Might Be the Sign of the End of Western Civilization

If, in the future, men are composing a significant minority of her American concert crowds, we are doomed.


Today on Capitol Hill...

The critters are still out today, so no meetings or hearings are scheduled Monday, but the House is preparing to dive into the Fiscal Year 2025 spending bills, with three of the measures set to hit the floor this week. 

White House What's Up

President Joe Biden remains at Camp David, where he's juicing gearing up for Thursday's debate with former President Donald Trump. Because the man who's held public office since 1972 — save that four-year post-Obama stint as the Big Guy a private citizen — and who's been the nation's chief executive for the past three-and-a-half years needs all sorts of preparation to face off against the Bad Orange Man for 90 minutes with a friendly host/moderating team, no live audience, and controlled mics. 


Full Court Press...

Trump's legal team is back in court Monday before Judge Aileen Cannon in the Southern District of Florida to present arguments regarding Jack Smith's appointment and the Appropriations Clause in the morning. In the afternoon, Cannon will hear arguments on Smith's motion to modify the conditions of Trump's release. 

No decisions are expected to be handed down by the Supreme Court on Monday, but today marks the two-year anniversary of the Dobbs decision. A win for life, even if Republicans often seem like the proverbial dog that caught the car on that issue. 


This is undoubtedly going to be one of those busy news weeks, between Supreme Court decisions, the hearings in Trump's Florida case, the debate on Thursday, and whatever chaos the world sends our way. Keep your head on a swivel — and, of course, check RedState often. We'll be doing our utmost to keep on top of it all.
