Axios AM Deep Dive: ? Beginning the Biden economy

Mike Allen <mike@axios.com> Sat. Feb 6, 2021

Axios AM Deep Dive   By Mike Allen ·Feb 06, 2021

Good afternoon. After President Biden’s first two weeks, here’s a Deep Dive — led by Axios business managing editor Aja Whitaker-Moore — on his team, his plans and the outlook for this new era of Democratic control.

1 big thing: A lucky president

Photo illustration: Eniola Odetunde/Axios. Photo: Kyle Rivas/Stringer via Getty Images

Joe Biden assumed office with more economic upside than any other president in recent history, writes Axios Business Editor Dan Primack.

Between the lines: Presidencies are creatures of circumstance. For Biden, it’s a smoldering economy atop a solid foundation, with a rebuild plan whose primary materials (vaccines and stimulus) are in unusually high supply. If economic arrows turn red, it likely means Biden botched the blueprint.

  • Donald Trumpinherited a longstanding recovery, which meant he could help accelerate growth but had no recession to reverse.
  • Barack Obama was faced with a financial crisis born of deep, systemic design flaws. There was no vaccine to cure what ailed America’s economy.
  • George W. Bushcampaigned in the last days of the dotcom bubble, which already had begun bursting when he entered the White House.
  • Bill Clinton inherited a recession, but only a relatively mild one.

A big difference between 2020 and past recessions is that 2020 was caused by an external event — the economy was the victim, not the culprit.

  • The Trump economy certainly didn’t work for everyone, but many of its macro strengths could remain beneath the ash, including pre-pandemic wage growth and decreases in poverty rates.
  • Biden can dig a lot of them up, just by succeeding on vaccine distribution. He then can leverage Democratic control of Congress — and America’s desensitization to big numbers — to throw money at short-term economic problems.

Between the lines: Tailwinds don’t necessarily result in a smooth flight. Biden’s biggest risk could be the fact that American business, investors and most voters expect success. Anything short of the Roaring 20s (Part II) would bring disappointment.

The bottom line: Never before has a bad economy looked so good for a presidential legacy.

  1. State of economic affairs

Data: Bureau of Economic AnalysisBureau of Labor StatisticsCensus BureauYahoo Finance. Chart: Andrew Witherspoon/Axios

  1. Priced for perfection

Photo illustration: Eniola Odetunde/Axios. Photo: Getty Images

It would be hard for things to get much worse than 2020. But Wall Street fund managers may be pricing in too much optimism, Axios Markets author Dion Rabouin reports.

  • Why it matters:Projections from economists and government offices — for falling unemployment, rising GDP and a booming stock market — are setting Biden up for success. But high hopes dashed could lead to blowback.

What’s happening: The Congressional Budget Office expects U.S. growth to return to its pre-COVID level midway through this year, and for the unemployment rate to reach 6% by year’s end.

  • Goldman Sachs economists are even predicting that U.S. GDP growth in the third quarter will reach 10% — a milestone without modern precedent, save for the 33% growth in Q3 2020 that followed the 35% contraction in Q2.

That’s got asset managers expecting big returns from the stock market this year and businesses banking on rising sales and profits.

  • But even before the recent run-up in equities prices, the stock market was “priced for perfection,” John Lynch, CIO of Comerica Wealth Management tells Axios.

Go deeper.

It’s time to pass the Raise the Wage Act

An increase to $15 would help 32 million U.S. workers. It’s the minimum Amazon pays its U.S. employees. Amazon’s Jay Carney shares results firsthand, including:

  • Better employee morale and retention.
  • A surge in job applicants.

A ripple effect for local businesses and economies.

  1. 45 vs. 46 on the stock market

“Finished off the year with the highest Stock Market in history. Setting records with your 401k’s, just like I said you would. Congratulations to all!”

— Trump’s final tweet about the stock market before his account was suspended by Twitter.

“Just in the last three years, during this crisis, the billionaires in this country made, according to The Wall Street Journal, $700 billion more. $700 billion more. Because that’s his only measure. What happens to the ordinary people out there? What happens to them?”

— Biden at the last presidential debate, Oct. 22.

  1. Economic sphere of influence

Graphic: Danielle Alberti, Sarah Grillo/Axios

Here are some administration players who have Biden’s ear on the economy, from Axios’ Courtenay Brown:

  • Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen was Fed chair under Obama.
  • Brian Deese, director of the National Economic Council, was an executive at BlackRock who headed up sustainable investing and an NEC deputy director in the Obama administration.
  • Susan Rice,domestic policy adviser, will oversee major portions of Biden’s “Build Back Better” plan.
  • Jared Bernstein, a longtime economic adviser to Biden, is a member of the Council of Economic Advisers.

What ties them together: “They clearly have as one of their core values how policy will affect racial equity in a way that I think is new,” Heidi Shierholz, a labor economist at the left-leaning Economic Policy Institute, told Axios.

Congressional Democrats, thanks to a (slim) Senate majority, are taking the helm of committees that will shape the business world.

  • Elizabeth Warrenwill join the Finance Committee, which oversees tax legislation — a cornerstone of Biden’s “Build Back Better” plan.
  • That committee’s new chair,Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden, told CNBC this week he’ll prioritize tax reform.
  • Others include:The new chair of the Budget Committee, Sen. Bernie Sanders, plus Sen. Sherrod Brown, the new Banking Committee chair.

What to watch: The team’s first big test is weeks away, when unemployment benefits for millions of Americans will expire without additional action.

Go deeper.

  1. Reimagined policy toolbox

Illustration: Sarah Grillo/Axios

The Biden administration is reinventing an economic toolbox to address a crisis unlike anything the world has seen in a century, Axios’ Kia Kokalitcheva and Felix Salmon write.

Reality check: Whole sectors of the economy are intentionally paralyzed to avoid more catastrophic spread of the virus. Meanwhile, many white-collar telecommuters are doing better than ever.

  • Biden’s economic planstarts with the current $1.9 trillion rescue package. Once that’s passed, he intends to turn to large-scale infrastructure investments that are aimed at creating American jobs and reinventing the post-crisis economy for a zero-carbon world.

A new New Deal: Biden’s “Build Back Better” plan, which includes medium- and long-term efforts to upgrade U.S. infrastructure with an eye on curbing climate change, could prove an effective way to boost economic recovery.

  • Large-scale projects can create a lot of jobs, and re-skilling and education programs may help the labor force longer term. And that could have effects on U.S. productivity.

What we’re watching: Tax increases could help some deficit hawks in Congress feel more at ease with massive spending. But Biden hasn’t focused on that yet.

Go deeper.

A MESSAGE FROM AMAZON

Amazon: Raise the minimum wage to boost the economy

Auhzha Wright at her home on Tuesday, Oct. 6, 2020 in Harvey, Ill. Photographer: Taylor GlascockAuhzha Wright at her salon on Tuesday, Oct. 6, 2020 in Chicago, Ill. Photographer: Taylor Glascock

With new support from the White House and commitment in Congress, the Raise the Wage Act has a chance of becoming law.

Amazon believes that U.S. workers, small businesses that will benefit from increased spending, and our economic recovery can’t wait.

The remains of U.S. Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick were transported in an urn to the building he helped defend during the Jan. 6 D.C. insurrection. A ceremony was held as he lay in honor on Wednesday.

Why it matters: Lying in honor is a final tribute reserved only for private citizens who’ve provided distinguished service to the U.S. President Biden and first lady Jill Biden joined congressional leaders, police and others in paying tribute to Sicknick at the Capitol Rotunda Tuesday night.

The latest: Congressional leaders delivered remarks at a ceremony on Wednesday.

  • House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said to Sicknick’s family: “We will never forget his sacrifice … We will never forget. With your permission, may we be worthy to carry Brian in our hearts.”
  • Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y) called Sicknick “a peacekeeper, not only in duty, but in spirit.” He added: Talk to his colleagues and they will tell you that Brian was a kind and humble man, with profound inner strength, the quiet rock of his unit.”

The remains of officer Sicknick arrive at the U.S. Capitol. His remains will lie in honor through Wednesday, and then be buried at Arlington National Cemetery.                       Photo: Jim Lo Scalzo/EPA/Bloomberg via Getty Images

Lindsey Graham Stonewalls Merrick Garland’s Confirmation Hearing, & Upcoming Team Justice Projects

Feb 2, 2021  Glenn Kirschner

In an appalling bit of Republican obstruction, Lindsey Graham (who at the moment remains the leader of the Senate Judiciary Committee) is refusing to set a date for the confirmation hearing for Merrick Garland, President Biden’s nominee for Attorney General. Graham’s action is transparently in retaliation for the impeachment of Donald Trump. Indeed, Graham himself connects the two in a statement he released, saying, in part, “government requires trade-offs.” What can We The People do to try to fix what politicians have broken in our government and our country? This video discusses two of the Team Justice projects that are designed to encourage and inspire full citizen participation in all aspects of government.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani urged Biden’s administration to return to the 2015 nuclear agreement and lift sanctions on Tehran, while welcoming the end of President Donald Trump’s era of “oppression and corruption.” European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen smiled as she congratulated Biden and Harris, saying “Europe has a friend in the White House,” during an EU Parliament address.

The Associated Press: Biden halts border wall building after Trump’s final surge

SAN DIEGO (AP) — In the days before Joe Biden became president, construction crews worked quickly to finish Donald Trump’s wall at an iconic cross-border park overlooking the Pacific Ocean, which then-first lady Pat Nixon inaugurated in 1971 as a symbol of international friendship.

Biden on Wednesday ordered a “pause” on all wall construction within a week, one of 17 executive orders issued on his first day in office, including six dealing with immigration.

The order leaves billions of dollars of work unfinished — but still under contract — after Trump worked feverishly last year to build more than 450 miles (720 kilometers), a goal he said he achieved eight days before leaving office.

As of Jan. 15, the government spent $6.1 billion of the $10.8 billion in work it signed contracts to have done, according to a Senate Democratic aide with knowledge of the contracts who spoke on condition of anonymity because details have not been made public. The full amount under contract would have extended Trump’s wall to 664 miles (1,069 kilometers).

Biden, seeking to fulfill a pledge not to build “another foot,” gave his administration two months to determine how much it would cost to cancel contracts and whether money could be spent elsewhere. The Senate aide said fees would be negotiated with contractors and the administration would seek to spend whatever’s left on related uses on the border, such as roads, lights, sensors and other technology.

Publicly, the Trump administration said it secured $15 billion for the wall. The Senate aide said it was actually $16.45 billion as of Wednesday, $5.8 billion of which was appropriated by Congress and the rest diverted from the Defense and Treasury departments.

The Trump administration notified the Senate aide on Jan. 14 that it was moving ahead with a contract for $863 million, but it was not awarded.

The Army Corps of Engineers, which has awarded wall contracts with Defense Department money, said Thursday that it told crews not to install any additional barriers and to limit activity over the next few days to what is “necessary to safely prepare each site for a suspension of work.”

John Kurc, an activist who posts videos of dynamite blasts by wall construction crews, said he saw one dynamite charge being set Wednesday afternoon in Guadalupe Canyon in easternmost Arizona, even as the inauguration was playing out in Washington.

Heavy machines have been crawling over roadways gouged into rocky mountainsides, tapping open holes for posts on U.S. Bureau of Land Management property.

Advocates in Texas’ Rio Grande Valley, the busiest area for illegal crossings, and near Nogales, Arizona, saw idle construction equipment Thursday.

But in San Diego, crews were out replacing a steel fence with imposing, tightly spaced poles topped with flat steel plates rising 30 feet (9 meters), said Dan Watman of Friends of Friendship Park, a group that promotes public access to the cross-border park overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

Contractors began last week, said Watman, who was informed of the project in a December conference call with Border Patrol agents but got no explanation for it. The agency referred questions to the White House, which had no immediate comment.

Trump said the border wall would be “virtually impenetrable” and paid for by Mexico, which never happened. While the wall is much more formidable than the barriers it replaced, it isn’t uncommon for smugglers to guide people over or through it. Portions can be sawed with power tools sold at home improvement stores.

Despite Trump’s bravado, Border Patrol officials have said the wall was never meant to stop everyone but rather to slow their advance.

Jose Edgar Zuleta, whose business selling religious jewelry in the Mexican city of Puebla dried up during the coronavirus pandemic, cleared two walls in Friendship Park in October with a special ladder. He moved through brush in a heavily patrolled area for about half an hour before getting caught. His 21-year-old son, who went ahead of him, got picked up hours later.

The cross-border park has hosted yoga classes, concerts and countless news conferences, including one in 2018 with then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions to announce a “zero tolerance” policy that caused thousands of children to be separated from their parents at the border.

An old bullfighting ring and ocean-view restaurants surround the Mexican side; wetland scrub stretches into the United States.

Years ago, people passed baked goods, kissed and shook hands through a chain-link fence. Watman remembers passing tools back and forth in 2007 to plant a cross-border garden that still stands.

Since 2012, after construction of a double wall at the park, the Border Patrol has opened a gate many weekends for up to 10 people at a time to exchange words with those in Mexico.

SLSCO Ltd. of Galveston, Texas, won contracts to build double walls blanketing 14 miles (22 kilometers) in San Diego. Company spokeswoman Liz Rogers said work at Friendship Park is separate and done by another company.

The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear arguments next month on whether the government’ illegally diverted billions of dollars from the Defense Department to build the wall after Congress denied money that Trump sought, triggering a 35-day government shutdown in 2017.

It is unclear if Biden will adopt Trump’s position before the Supreme Court. The government’s brief is due Feb. 11.

Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador welcomed Biden’s decision to stop wall construction but, in defense of Trump, noted that U.S. presidents going back to 1990s built border barriers. He displayed a chart to prove his point

The New York Times      The Morning:  Biden’s first day

January 21, 2021

By David Leonhardt  

Good morning. The Biden administration begins to address the six crises that the new president described in his inaugural address.

‘Cascading crises of our era’

Near the end of his inaugural address yesterday, President Biden named six crises that the U.S. faces: the virus, climate change, growing inequality, racism, America’s global standing and an attack on truth and democracy.

“Any one of these will be enough to challenge us in profound ways. But the fact is, we face them all at once,” Biden said. “We will be judged — you and I — by how we resolve these cascading crises of our era.”

To get started, Biden announced a longer list of Day 1 executive actions — 17, in all — than any previous modern president, as The Times’s Michael Shear points out. The Biden administration is also asking for legislation by Congress. But here’s our explanation of how the new president is trying to make immediate progress:

The virus

Biden signed an executive order yesterday requiring masks where he has the authority to do so — in federal buildings, for example — as well as a separate order creating a White House position to improve the government’s response to the virus.
He also made clear that he was ending the Trump administration’s hostility to global cooperation by halting the U.S. withdrawal from the World Health Organization. Biden is sending Dr. Anthony Fauci to the group’s meeting today as the head of the U.S. delegation. “It’s an interconnected world,” my colleague Apoorva Mandavilli says. To succeed in combating the virus, “we have to coordinate with other countries.”
Biden is also asking Americans to wear masks for the next 100 days. One question he hasn’t yet answered: How will he persuade more Republican voters — many of whom are skeptical of masks — to wear them?

Climate change
Biden signed two executive orders on climate — one that recommits the U.S. to the Paris climate agreement and another that reverses Donald Trump’s hostility to environmental regulations. “No president has brought in this many people at the start of an administration to work on climate change,” Lisa Friedman, who covers climate policy, said.
Still, these actions are only first steps, Nathaniel Keohane of the Environmental Defense Fund told me. Reversing Trump’s actions is significant, he added — but the world needs more ambitious steps to curb the use of greenhouse gases that are causing so much damage.

Inequality and racism
Biden’s biggest attempts to reduce economic and racial inequality will require congressional legislation. But he took some early steps yesterday.
He has extended moratoriums on evictions and student-loan payments that the Trump administration had put in place. He also ordered federal agencies to root out racially unequal policies. “We have great evidence from economists that tearing down barriers to advancement for men of color and women of all races fueled huge amounts of growth in the United States in decades past,” The Times’s Jim Tankersley said.
Biden also sought to undo several of Trump’s anti-immigration policies. Among the moves: refocusing deportation efforts on those undocumented immigrants who have committed crimes in the U.S. “Trump, on the other hand, decided that anyone in the country illegally should be arrested and deported,” Miriam Jordan, who covers immigration for The Times, said.

Democracy, truth and America’s role in the world

In his address, Biden repeatedly stressed the importance of truth and included a veiled but obvious reference to Trump by criticizing “lies told for power and for profit.” And at her first White House briefing last night, Jen Psaki, Biden’s press secretary, said: “There will be moments when we disagree … but we have a common goal, which is sharing accurate information with the American people.”
Biden signaled his emphasis on diplomacy by embracing the Paris climate accord and World Health Organization. Another big move to improve the U.S. image around the world was his immediate repeal of a signature Trump policy: the so-called Muslim travel ban. It had restricted nearly all passport holders from several Muslim-majority countries — including Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen — from entering the U.S.

MORE ON THE INAUGURATION

REVIEWS OF THE SPEECH
 Most presidents’ inaugural addresses have included encomiums to unity. But “Biden’s words felt less like rhetorical flourishes and more like an urgent appeal to stabilize a country reeling” from multiple crises, Julie Pace of The Associated Press wrote.

·         The journalist Clare Malone: “‘Lies told for power and for profit’ is a good line and a description of a thing that’s not going away.”

·         Slate’s Jim Newell: Biden is not likely to erase the country’s political divisions. But he has laid out an agenda with “tangible, deliverable items to make lives better.”

·         Eric Levitz of New York Magazine: “He does not seek the unity of all Americans, only that of ‘enough of us’ to drag the rest toward justice.”

·         “It wasn’t a memorable speech, but its informal style was true to Biden,” National Review’s Rich Lowry wrote. “Obviously it’s much easier to talk unity than achieve it.”

·         Biden’s declaration that he would “defeat” white supremacy echoed Ulysses S. Grant, the president who crushed the Ku Klux Klan after the Civil War, The New Yorker’s Jelani Cobb noted.

THE POEM
  • Amanda Gorman, 22, was the youngest person to deliver an inaugural poem. You can watch her performance, or read the text.
  • Gorman said she had listened to the musical “Hamilton” for inspiration. “You were perfect,” Lin-Manuel Miranda, the show’s creator, wrote to her on Twitter. “Brava!”
  • Like Biden, Gorman has had a speech impediment, and it helped draw her to poetry. Before the inauguration, she practiced delivering her poem “The Hill We Climb” over and over, she told The Times.
INAUGURAL FASHIONS

  • Purple — a blend of red and blue — was the color of the day. (It’s also one of the signature colors of the suffragists.) Vice President Kamala Harris, Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton all wore variations of the color.
  • Biden and his wife, Jill Biden, as well as Harris and her husband, Doug Emhoff, wore American designers. Harris’s outfit was designed by Christopher John Rogers, the latest Black designer whose clothes she has spotlighted.

  • Senator Bernie Sanders and his mittens became a meme. They are Vermont-made, and he wore them on the campaign trail, Ruby Cramer of BuzzFeed News wrote.
  • Lady Gaga, who wore a large brooch of a dove carrying an olive branch as she sang the national anthem, evokedthe dystopian book series “The Hunger Games.” Its heroine, Katniss Everdeen, sports a pin of a fictional bird.
  • Sneakerheads admired the rare pair of Dior Air Jordan 1sthat Nikolas Ajagu, husband of Meena Harris and nephew-in-law of Kamala Harris, wore to the ceremony.
THE ADMINISTRATION’S FIRST DAY

  • The Senate confirmed Avril Haines to be the director of national intelligence. She was Biden’s first cabinet nominee to receive a vote.
  • The Washington Post got a peek at how Biden has redecorated the Oval Office, from bringing back Bill Clinton’s drapes to installing a big portrait of Franklin Roosevelt, a president who steered the nation through multiple crises.
  • Jon Bon Jovi, John Legend and Katy Perry — singing “Firework” to actual fireworks over the Mall — were among those who performed at a celebration to mark the day.
  • “The performances stuck to a theme: hope in a dark time,” The Times’s critic writes

OTHER NEWS

  • The World Health Organization reported that 93,000 people died of the coronavirus across the globe last week, a record. (Here’s how to protect yourself.)
  • Because of a shipping delay, New York City postponed 23,000 vaccination appointments that were scheduled for this week.
  • Members of the Proud Boys, a far-right group loyal to Trump, are calling him “weak,” as more of them face charges over storming the Capitol.
  • Antifascist and racial-justice protesters in Portland, Ore., and in Seattle smashed windows, marched through the streets and burned an American flag, saying that the Biden administration “won’t save us.”
  • Several species of salmon in the Pacific Northwest are “on the brink of extinction,” partly as a result of climate change.
  • A U.S. woman living in Bali praised the Indonesian island as “queer friendly.” In response, the authorities deported her for “spreading information that could unsettle the public.”

I had the above video on my previous post, blog page, and I also sent it to my five-year-old, grandson, Kai to view.

The following content comes from the post that I produced for my Blog page on January 19, 2015:

Dr. Martin Luther King’s Day and Malcolm X Shabazz High School Students’ Peace Comments

Malcolm X Shabazz High School Students’ Peace Comments

Ing’s Peace Project

Happy Birthday Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Monday, January 19, 2015

I produced Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. “I Have A Dream” artwork in 2010.

Thanks to Linda Leonard-Nevels , School Library Media Specialist of Malcolm X Shabazz High School, Newark, New Jersey.  She came to our store.  After her shopping I took advantage to explain to her about my Peace Project.  Linda came back on Friday, October 1. 2014 and took six of my Peace Project posters to distribute to the teachers in her school for their students to write comments on my peace posters.  She returned three of my Peace posters with student comments on Friday, December 12, 2014.

Working on artwork for Malcolm X Shabazz High School’s Students comments on “What does Peace mean to you?” I realized that this month on Monday, January 19 is Dr. Martin Luther King’s Day.  I recalled that Dr. King received a Nobel Peace Prize on 1964.  I am sure these students know this.  I did research on Dr. King’s acceptance speech.  I was impressed with his speech.  Lately there is increasing conflict between the black youth and police.  So I decided to do some artwork on Dr. King’s Nobel Prize Acceptance speech in the same project of the Malcolm X Shabazz High School’s Students Peace comments.

 I hope that young people today realize that it takes time for human progress and it takes all generations to be aware of human rights and put effort into improving the transition for all humanity to reach equality and harmony in our world.

Martin Luther King Jr. Nobel Peace Prize Acceptance Speech

Jan 15, 2014  Nobel Prize

Read the acceptance speech at nobelprize.org: https://www.nobelprize.org/prizes/pea… Martin Luther King Jr. held his acceptance speech in the auditorium of the University of Oslo on 10 December 1964. Copyright © Norsk Rikskringkasting AS 2012

                                                      Dr.Martin Luther King’s

Nobel Prize Acceptance Speech

December 10, 1964
Oslo, Norway

I accept the Nobel Prize for Peace at a moment when twenty-two million Negroes of the United States of America are engaged in a creative battle to end the long night of racial injustice. I accept this award in behalf of a civil rights movement which is moving with determination and a majestic scorn for risk and danger to establish a reign of freedom and a rule of justice.

I am mindful that only yesterday in Birmingham, Alabama, our children, crying out for brotherhood, were answered with fire hoses, snarling dogs and even death. I am mindful that only yesterday in Philadelphia, Mississippi, young people seeing to secure the right to vote were brutalized and murdered. And only yesterday more than 40 houses of worship in the State of Mississippi alone were bombed or burned because they offered a sunctuary to those who would not accept segregation.

I am mindful that debilitating and grinding poverty afflicts my people and chains them to the lowest rung of the economic ladder.

Therefore, I must ask why this prize is awarded to a movement which is beleaguered and committed to unrelenting struggle; to a movement which has not won the very peace and brotherhood which is the essence of the Nobel Prize.

After contemplation, I conclude that this award which I receive on behalf of that movement is profound recognition that nonviolence is the answer to the crucial political and moral question of our time — the need for man to overcome oppression and violence without resorting to violence and oppression.

Civilization and violence are antithetical concepts. Negroes of the United States, following the people of India, have demonstrated that nonviolence is not sterile passivity, but a powerful moral force which makes for social transformation. Sooner or later all the people of the world will have to discover a way to live together in peace, and thereby transform this pending cosmic elegy into a creative psalm of brotherhood.

If this is to be achieved, man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love. The tortuous road which has led from Montgomery, Alabama, to Oslo bears witness to this truth. This is a road over which millions of Negroes are travelling to find a new sense of dignity.

This same road has opened for all Americans a new ear of progress and hope. It has led to a new Civil Rights bill, and it will, I am convinced, be widened and lengthened into a superhighway of justice as Negro and white men in increasing numbers create alliances to overcome their common problems.

I accept this award today with an abiding faith in America and an audacious faith in the future of mankind. I refuse to accept despair as the final response to the ambiguities of history. I refuse to accept the idea that the “isness” of man’s present nature makes him morally incapable of reaching up for the eternal “oughtness” that forever confronts him.

I refuse to accept the idea that man is mere flotsom and jetsom in the river of life unable to influence the unfolding events which surround him. I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality.

I refuse to accept the cynical notion that nation after nation must spiral down a militaristic stairway into the hell of thermonuclear destruction. I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right temporarily defeated is stronger than evil triumphant.

I believe that even amid today’s motor bursts and whining bullets, there is still hope for a brighter tomorrow. I believe that wounded justice, lying prostrate on the blood-flowing streets of our nations, can be lifted from this dust of shame to reign supreme among the children of men.

I have the audacity to believe that peoples everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education and culture for their minds, and dignity, equality and freedom for their spirits. I believe that what self-centered men have torn down, men other-centered can build up. I still believe that one day mankind will bow before the altars of God and be crowned triumphant over war and bloodshed, and nonviolent redemptive goodwill will proclaim the rule of the land.

“And the lion and the lamb shall lie down together and every man shall sit under his own vine and fig tree and none shall be afraid.”

I still believe that we shall overcome.

This faith can give us courage to face the uncertainties of the future. It will give our tired feet new strength as we continue our forward stride toward the city of freedom. When our days become dreary with low-hovering clouds and our nights become darker than a thousand midnights, we will know that we are living in the creative turmoil of a genuine civilization struggling to be born.

Today I come to Oslo as a trustee, inspired and with renewed dedication to humanity. I accept this prize on behalf of all men who love peace and brotherhood. I say I come as a trustee, for in the depths of my heart I am aware that this prize is much more than an honor to me personally.

Every time I take a flight I am always mindful of the man people who make a successful journey possible — the known pilots and the unknown ground crew.

So you honor the dedicated pilots of our struggle who have sat at the controls as the freedom movement soared into orbit. You honor, once again, Chief (Albert) Luthuli of South Africa, whose struggles with and for his people, are still met with the most brutal expression of man’s inhumanity to man.

You honor the ground crew without whose labor and sacrifices the jet flights to freedom could never have left the earth.

Most of these people will never make the headlines and their names will not appear in Who’s Who. Yet when years have rolled past and when the blazing light of truth is focused on this marvelous age in which we live — men and women will know and children will be taught that we have a finer land, a better people, a more noble civilization — because these humble children of God were willing to suffer for righteousness’ sake.

I think Alfred Nobel would know what I mean when I say that I accept this award in the spirit of a curator of some precious heirloom which he holds in trust for its true ownersall those to whom beauty is truth and truth beauty — and in whose eyes the beauty of genuine brotherhood and peace is more precious than diamonds or silver or gold.

MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.

President Donald Trump stands impeached a second time. Ten Republican members of Congress voted to impeach. But 197 Republican representatives stood by Donald Trump rather than standing by the American people. How should history remember and record what these 197 individuals did today?

Why Arrest Warrants Should Issue for Trump, Don Jr., Rudy & Others for the Jan. 6 US Capitol Riot

Jan 11, 2021  Glenn Kirschner

Donald Trump and others encouraged, instigated and incited the riot at the US Capitol on January 6. Worse yet, Trump made sure there were no executive branch law enforcement resources deployed to protect those in the Capitol building (given that the US Capitol Police are an agency controlled by Congress, not the executive branch). Trump, Don Jr., Rudy Giuliani and others incited the crowd to march on and, in a very real sense, attack, the US Capitol, putting EVERYONE in the building – janitorial staff, administrative staff, members of Congress and even Vice President Pence – at imminent risk of serious injury or worse. There generally are three ways to initiate a criminal case: a probable cause arrest, an arrest warrant and/or a grand jury indictment. Here’s an explanation of the difference among the three and why an arrest warrant is the best approach at this moment in time for Trump and the others.

Jan 7, 2021  DW News

Leaders around the world watched in disbelief as the chaos unfolded in Washington, where supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the US Capitol. Many have condemned the violence and called for democracy to be respected. German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron gave their reactions, and DW spoke to people on the street in Germany. Around the world, there was disbelief at the scenes that unfolded in the Capitol: -Germany’s Bild newspaper talked of a “coup attempt” – and a “moment of great shame” -In Britain, the Daily Telegraph minced no words: “Democracy under siege” -The picture of Trump supporters storming the Capitol dominated the United Arab Emirates’ Gulf News daily. -The Nigerian Tribune offered this blistering verdict: “Trump supporters defile democracy.” -China compared the storming of the Capitol with pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong.

Could Trump be removed for inciting supporters to storm the Capitol? | DW News

Jan 7, 2021  DW News

Unprecedented – and deadly – scenes at the Capitol in Washington DC – where supporters of President Trump stormed the building in a bid to overturn the election results. One woman was shot and later died of her injuries, as rioters attempted to stop Congress members from certifying Joe Biden’s election victory. Chaos unraveled on Capitol Hill as the building was stormed by hundreds of Trump supporters. A battle ensued between riot police and the protesters as they broke past security. They stormed the Senate chambers to prevent Congress from certifying Joe Biden’s election victory – literally bringing democracy to a halt. Police then drew their guns. A woman was shot by police officers – and was later proclaimed dead. Some protesters also turned their anger against the media. Earlier at a rally near the White House, President Trump had repeated his unsubstantiated claims that the election had been stolen from him – and urged his supporters to rally at the Capitol. Hours later Trump then released a recorded message telling his supporters to go home but failed to condemn their actions. Trump has now been suspended from several social media accounts, including Twitter, after tweeting to supporters who attacked the Capitol. When lawmakers finally got back into the Senate chambers, several senior republicans condemned then violence. Including Trump’s vice president Mike Pence. The violence was branded as a siege by President-elect Joe Biden, who warned of the threat to democracy. The crowds dissipated once the 6pm curfew came into force, but National Guard troops remained alert for potential violence throughout the night.

The New York Times        The Morning                    January 7, 2021

By David Leonhardt
Good morning. A pro-Trump mob stormed the Capitol. Members of Congress — after fleeing for their safety — voted to confirm Biden’s victory.

They listened to the president

Donald Trump has been attacking American democracy for much of his time as president.

He has told repeated lies about voter fraud, undermining people’s confidence in elections. He has defied parts of the Constitution. He has spent his final weeks in office pressuring other government officials to overturn the result of an election he lost. He has occasionally encouraged his supporters to commit violence.
Yesterday, hundreds of those supporters decided to take Trump literally.
They fought their way through armed police, smashed windows and stormed the U.S. Capitol to prevent Congress from certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s victory. They then spent several hours inside the building, vandalizing offices and the House floor. They injured at least 14 law enforcement officers. Vice President Mike Pence, members of Congress and others fled for their safety.
In the end, the rioters — and Trump — will fail in their effort to keep him in power. At about 3:45 a.m., Congress did confirm Biden’s victory. Thirteen days from now, he will take the oath of office and become president of the United States.
But a physical assault on the nation’s seat of government is no small thing. And it was not a onetime event. It was a logical extension of the message that Trump has long been telling his supporters — that American democracy is a fraud, that his opponents are traitors and that his allies need to fight back.
“We’re seeing more and more citizens expressing openness to violence,” Lee Drutman, a political scientist, told me almost three months ago, “as more and more partisan leaders engage in the kinds of dehumanizing rhetoric that paves the way for taking violent action.”
Trump, speaking to the protesters at a rally hours before they burst into the Capitol, referred to his political opponents as “bad people” and “the enemy of the people.” He described his allies as “warriors” and encouraged them to stop “fighting like a boxer with his hands tied behind his back.” He added, “We’re going to have to fight much harder.”
At the same rally, Rudy Giuliani said that Trump’s opponents should go to jail and added, “Let’s have trial by combat.” And Donald Trump Jr., addressing congressional Republicans who planned to split from his father, said: “We’re coming for you, and we’re going to have a good time doing it.”
After the violence, Trump himself wrote on social media, “These are the things and events that happen when a sacred landslide election victory is so unceremoniously and viciously stripped away from great patriots who have been badly & unfairly treated for so long.”
Trump’s efforts are failing in large part because a significant number of Republicans have refused to go along with him. But many other high-level Republicans have echoed and encouraged him. Josh Hawley, Ted Cruz and dozens of other members of Congress have fanned voters’ anger by promoting Trump’s lies about the election. (Here’s a list of Congress members who did so yesterday.) They have joined his attempts to undermine the American system of government.
“This is what you’ve gotten, guys,” Senator Mitt Romney, the Utah Republican, yelled as the rioters breached the Capitol yesterday. He was addressing his colleagues who have supported Trump’s efforts to overturn the results of the election.
Shortly afterward, uniformed police officers evacuated senators and reporters from the chamber to the basement, before rushing them through underground tunnels to a secure location in a Senate office building. There, Romney saw Jonathan Martin, a Times reporter, and called for Jonathan to come over and talk. In 15 years of covering him, Jonathan said he had never seen Romney so alarmed.
“This is what the president has caused today, this insurrection,” Romney, with fury in his voice, said.

THE LATEST DEVELOPMENTS
  • A woman shot by the police — inside the Capitol, during the mayhem — has died. Washington police said that three other people also died in the area around the Capitol yesterday “from separate medical emergencies.”
  • Trump said in a statement early this morning that there would be “an orderly transition” on Jan. 20.
  • A bomb squad destroyed a pipe bomb that was found at the Republican National Committee headquarters in Washington. Officials also discovered a suspicious package at the nearby Democratic National Committee office and evacuated it.
  • Twitter and Facebook temporarily locked Trump’s accounts, after he had issued statements that mixed praise for the rioters and calls for peace.
  • The police appeared unprepared for the onslaught, which Trump loyalists had discussed openly on social media sites like Gab and Parler. Trump initially rebuffed requests to send the National Guard to the Capitol. Pence eventually approved the order.
  • Derrick Evans, a newly elected Republican state lawmaker from West Virginia, was part of the crowd that rushed into the Capitol.
WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
  • “The incredible show of force that we saw in DC this summer… Where is it?” Abby Phillip, a CNN political correspondent, wrote, referring to the aggressive presence of law enforcement during Black Lives Matter protests.
  • Former President George W. Bush said he was “appalled by the reckless behavior of some political leaders since the election and by the lack of respect shown today for our institutions, our traditions and our law enforcement.”
  • Angela Merkel, Germany’s chancellor, said: “These pictures made me angry and sad. But I am sure: American democracy will prove to be much stronger than the aggressors and rioters.”
  • James Mattis, former defense secretary under Trump, said: “Today’s violent assault on our Capitol, an effort to subjugate American democracy by mob rule, was fomented by Mr. Trump.”
  • “Not everyone storming the Capitol is QAnon, but make no mistake: this wouldn’t have happened without QAnon, the politicians and partisan media figures who cynically embraced it, and the platforms that amplified it for years,” Kevin Roose, a Times tech columnist, wrote.
  • “This is not dissent,” Biden said in a speech as the chaos was unfolding. “It’s disorder. It’s chaos. It borders on sedition and it must end now.”
  • “Storming the capitol was an act of political violence meant to express ownership of the country, regardless of the outcome of any election,” Adam Serwer, a writer at The Atlantic, tweeted. “Its surrender by the capitol police was an affirmation that will encourage further violence.”
  • “Today the Confederate flag flew in the United States Capitol,” Heather Cox Richardson, a history professor at Boston College, wrote.
THE HEADLINES ABROAD

Clockwise, from top left: Frankfurter Allgemeine, Germany; Clarín, Argentina; La Repubblica, Italy; The Chosun Ilbo, Korea; Adresseavisen, Norway; Dainik Bhaskar, India.

How did the media in other countries cover the events?

“Trump supporters attack the heart of American democracy,” Correa de Manhã, in Portugal, reported. Italy’s La Repubblica wrote: “Trump supporters on the attack: weapons in the chamber, Congress in lockdown.”India’s Dainik Bhaskar: “Oldest

democracy in crisis.”And France’s Le Figaro: “Capture of the Capitol: The day America’s democracy fractured.”

OTHER BIG STORIES

  • Jon Ossoff won his Senate campaign in Georgia, giving the Democrats control in both chambers of Congress.
  • Biden plans to nominate Judge Merrick Garland for attorney general. Republicans blocked Garland’s Supreme Court nomination in 2016.
  • It was the deadliest day of the pandemic in the U.S. so far, with more than 3,900 deaths and 255,000 new cases reported. (Delayed reporting from the holidays may have played a role.)
  • The federal government will introduce a program this week to administer coronavirus vaccines to high-risk groups, including older people and frontline workers, at pharmacies.
  • A court in Lahore, Pakistan, abolished so-called virginity tests for women in sexual assault cases, saying the practice is humiliating and casts suspicion on victims rather than the accused.

New Year’s 2021: Auckland, New Zealand rings in New Year with fireworks show

Dec 31, 2020  Global News

Auckland, New Zealand was one of the first places in the world to ring in 2021, with a dazzling fireworks display and a light show from its iconic Sky Tower and harbour. Revellers on the waterfront watched the five-minute show with brightly coloured fireworks and laser lighting shooting into the night sky over the city’s harbour.

Donald Trump’s Pardon Palooza – What Message Is Trump Sending With His Many Pardons?

Dec 23, 2020  Glenn Kirschner

Donald Trump seems to be on the “Friends and Family” pardon plan. What do Trump’s many pardons say about Donald Trump and what do they say about America? Update: Since recording this video, Trump has issued even more pardons and I’m sure he is not done yet. Stay tuned.

Trump pardons 15, including 4 Blackwater defendants who killed 14 innocent, unarmed Iraqis.

Dec 22, 2020  Glenn Kirschner

Donald Trump grants 15 pardons: he pardoned Republican Congressman Chris Collins who committed financial crimes/insider trading, Republican Congressman Duncan Hunter who stole campaign money from his supporters, he pardoned George Papadopoulos who lied to the FBI about contacts with Russians. But worst of all, in my opinion, he pardoned the four Blackwater contractors who slaughtered 14 innocent, unarmed Iraqi men and women and injured 17 others. My former office, the US Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia, prosecuted those four defendant three times, trying to bring justice to the dozens of Iraqi citizens and their surviving family members. Trump’s pardons of these murderers is a horrific affront to victims rights the world over.

The Tessellated and Elaborately Detailed Ceilings of Iranian Mosques

Colossal: The Tessellated and Elaborately Detailed Ceilings of Iranian Mosques

FEBRUARY 25, 2016  KATE SIERZPUTOWSKI

Capturing the intricately tiled ceilings of centuries old mosques, Instagram photographer Mehrdad Rasoulifard (@m1rasoulifard) gives his followers both a history lesson and aesthetic treat. The ceilings are not only covered in rich patterns, but architecturally structured to appear like complex tessellations or honeycombs. The mosques are built to include spiraling series of domes and indents, causing the viewer to get lost in their disorienting beauty.

Often Iranian architecture utilizes symbolic geometry, incorporating an abundant use of circles and squares obvious in the photographed buildings’ symmetrical layouts. Popular colors incorporated into these tiled structures include gold, white, and turquoise which are typically layered onto dark blue backgrounds.

The oldest structure photographed is over 900-years-old which hints at the vast architectural history found in Iran. You can see more of the country’s detailed places of worship and observation on Rasoulifard’s Instagram. (via Designboom)
