"Corporations have been enthroned .... An era of corruption in high places will follow and the money power will endeavor to prolong its reign by working on the prejudices of the people... until wealth is aggregated in a few hands ... and the Republic is destroyed." -- Abraham Lincoln, American president, 1861-1865

A prominent Hollywood megadonor is putting the screws to vulnerable Senate Democrats by pressuring them to publicly abandon Joe Biden, saying he won’t give them another dime unless they call on the president to quit his bid for re-election.

Tom Strickler — who co-founded the Hollywood talent agency WME, which is now part of Endeavor — has launched an all-out assault on Joe Biden’s campaign, according to a New York Times report. He has already met with Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-NM), delivering the senator an ultimatum.

“If you don’t publicly call for Biden to step aside,” Strickler said he told Sen. Heinrich’s team on Thursday morning, “you are not getting a dime from me.”

Strickler told the Times that he had also been planning to give the maximum legal amount in August to each of the seven most vulnerable Democratic Senate candidates, but that as of now, he would not be supporting them because they have not broken with Biden.

An all-time high percentage of Americans think that in November, former President Donald Trump will defeat President Joe Biden.

According to a survey conducted on Wednesday by YouGov and The Economist, 49% of American people believe that Trump, as the Republican contender, would defeat Biden in the 2024 presidential contest. 16 percent of Democratic participation, 46 percent of independents, and 88 percent of Republicans were included in that figure.

“Trump’s odds for reelection were significantly greater than the 26 percent of adults who said they believed Biden would win in November. Another 25 percent of the 1,582 adults surveyed between July 13 and 16 said they were unsure. The survey specified that participants should pick who they believe will be successful ‘regardless of who you prefer’ for president,” Newsweek reported.

Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi privately told President Joe Biden in a recent conversation that polling shows that the president cannot defeat Donald Trump and that Biden could destroy Democrats’ chances of winning the House in November if he continues seeking a second term, according to four sources briefed on the call.

The president responded by pushing back, telling Pelosi he has seen polls that indicate he can win, one source said. Another one of the sources described Biden as getting defensive about the polls. At one point, Pelosi asked Mike Donilon, Biden’s longtime adviser, to get on the line to talk over the data.

This phone call would mark the second known conversation between the California lawmaker and Biden since the president’s disastrous debate on June 27. While the exact date of the conversation was not clear, one source described it as being within the last week. Pelosi and Biden also spoke in early July.

California delegates for the Democratic Party are reportedly in disarray as debate over the president's chances of re-election threatens to tear the party apart.

Private group chats across multiple social media platforms have been set up to facilitate discussion among the delegates, who almost universally worry that a second Biden term is an impossible sell to voters, according to Politico.

A cache of messages was reportedly leaked to the outlet — only the latest in a deluge of leaks from inside the Biden administration and the wider Democratic Party.

"Obviously, the first step would be that President Biden steps down of his own accord and frees his delegates," DNC delegate Susan Bolle posted in a Facebook group discussing the issue. "We should discuss this. This is a painful experience on every level, but we play an outsized role in history this election. This cannot be left to chance."
