The New York Times: Biden’s Intelligence Director Vows to Put Climate at ‘Center’ of Foreign Policy, April 22, 2021

🙂 Have A Happy Earth Day Everyone 🙂

Greetings from our two grandsons, five-year-old Kai, and, one-year-old Bodhi, with the flowers blooming in our garden.

Kai, our 5-year-old Grandson brought the tangerine plant outdoors to the garden on Thursday, April 19, 2021.  We keep our plants inside the apartment during winter.    Now that the weather is about 55 – 60-degree Fahrenheit, I decide to move some of the plants outdoors to the garden. 

Kai was surprised to see the Bleeding-Heat plant brooming.  Daffodils are the first flowers blooming in our garden.  The Bleeding-Heart Plant produced the second blooming of flowers.

This is the first time that Bodhi sees the flowers bloom.  He was very excited to see new things in his one-year-old life.  He wanted to pull the flowers as a young baby accustom to do.  This Bleeding-Heart Plant is a gift from his mother to us many years ago.  We always enjoy to see these beautiful flowers blooming in the early spring.  Because of staying so long inside during winter and the COVID-19 lockdown, we are eager to be outdoor in our garden.  It is really such a pleasure for us to see our daughter’s plant blooming into beautiful flowers.

President Biden pledges 50% cut in US carbon emissions at global climate summit – BBC News

Apr 22, 2021  BBC News, 5:39

President Biden has opened a major global climate summit with a call to other world leaders to step up to the challenge. Joe Biden pledged to cut US emissions by at least half from 2005 levels by the end of this decade but he warned that his country couldn’t take action alone. He told world leaders that scientists were calling this the “decisive decade” for tackling climate change and action was needed now. The latest data shows China is the world’s biggest producer of carbon dioxide, emitting 28% of global output. China is second biggest, producing 15% with India producing 7%.

The New York Times: Biden’s Intelligence Director Vows to Put Climate at ‘Center’ of Foreign Policy,

Avril Haines, the director of national intelligence, struck a note of urgency in telling world leaders that climate change must be “fully integrated” with national security.

Avril Haines, President Biden’s director of national intelligence, told world leaders on Thursday that climate change was no longer a peripheral issue but now “at the center” of U.S. foreign policy, with far-reaching impacts on force deployments and the stability of hard-hit regions.

Ms. Haines, speaking at this week’s virtual global climate conference, struck a tone of urgency at variance with the attitudes of many of her predecessors, who downplayed the role of rising sea levels, droughts, crop failures, fires, diseases and more frequent severe weather events.

“To address climate change properly it must be at the center of a country’s national security and foreign policy,” she said, echoing the words of Lloyd J. Austin III, the defense secretary, who addressed the conference a few minutes earlier.

“It needs to be fully integrated with every aspect of our analysis in order to allow us not only to monitor the threat but also, critically, to ensure that policymakers understand the importance of climate change on seemingly unrelated policies,” Ms. Haines said.

Her comments came after NATO officials announced they would likely agree on a climate “action plan” to reduce emissions by military units and conduct an alliance-wide assessment of the potential threats arising from climate disruptions.

On Thursday, the C.I.A. announced it was adding a new category covering the environment to its World Factbook. The agency’s unclassified guide will now provide the latest country data on climate, air pollutants, infectious diseases, food security, waste and other environmental topics.

Ms. Haines began by saying that the intelligence services had long recognized the importance of climate change — and praised efforts by the C.I.A. over the last three decades to identify the geopolitical impact of climate-based changes in Russia, Asia, Africa and the Arctic.

“We have not always made it a key priority,” she added.

The Biden administration has promised to put a new focus on climate change at the nation’s intelligence agencies. Top intelligence officials all pledged in their confirmation hearings to increase their agencies’ focus on climate.

A pair of recent intelligence reports have presented a grim picture of climate change. The annual worldwide threat assessment, which looks at short-term challenges, said extreme weather caused by climate change would increase the potential for surges in migration and cause instability around the globe.

The changes will “exacerbate political instability and humanitarian crises,” the annual threat report said.

The intelligence agencies issued even more dire warnings with the quadrennial Global Trends report issued on April 8, which argued that climate change would contribute to instability, strain military readiness and encourage new political movements. It said that all societies would be forced to adapt to a warmer planet through changes both small and complex, including the building of massive new sea walls and the relocation of cities and towns.

The report said the physical effects of climate change would intensify over the next 20 years, particularly in the 2030s, and the impact would fall disproportionately on poor parts of the world.

Some Republicans have expressed reservations at expanding the intelligence community’s focus on climate change. At a hearing last week, Ms. Haines argued that while there was partisan division over the issue, intelligence analysts have been examining the issue for decades during administrations of both parties.

“It’s just become increasingly accepted as something that is part of the national security landscape,” she said.

President Biden on Thursday declared America “has resolved to take action” on climate change, and the White House said it would substantially increase the money it offers to developing countries to address the issue.

In a show of renewed resolve after four years of the Trump administration’s unvarnished climate denial, Mr. Biden formally pledged that the United States would cut its emissions at least in half from 2005 levels by 2030. His administration also announced it intends to double by 2024 the amount of money it offers to help developing countries, compared with what the United States spent annually in the second half of the Obama administration.

Barely three months into Mr. Biden’s presidency, the contrast with his science-denying predecessor, President Donald J. Trump, could not have been more striking.

“The signs are unmistakable, the science is undeniable and the cost of inaction keeps mounting,” Mr. Biden said.

John Kerry, President Biden’s global climate change envoy, said he believes the United States will meet and possibly even surpass the new goal.

Speaking at the conclusion of the first day of the summit, Mr. Kerry called the goal “ambitious but appropriate and achievable” and said the market is moving faster than expected in creating renewable energy and new breakthroughs are likely on the horizon in battery storage and other areas.

“Is it doable? Will we probably exceed it? I expect yes,” Mr. Kerry said.

Asked what the Biden administration can do now to prevent a future president from gutting the climate plans as President Trump did to the Obama administration, Mr. Kerry noted that he fielded that question in virtually every diplomatic discussion over the past three months.

“You destroyed your credibility, you left the Paris Agreement, how can we trust you?” Mr. Kerry said other leaders asked him. He insisted the private sector will cement clean energy policies into reality even if Mr. Bidens’ policies stall or are someday overturned.,

“No politician, I think, can change what is now happening in the marketplace.”

The Biden administration said it plans to offer an estimated $5.7 billion a year by 2024. In a statement, the White House said that it would “work closely with Congress to meet these goals.”

Between 2013 and 2016, U.S. international climate finance was around $2.5 billion a year, including in the form of export credit and loans, based on government data from that time.

Joe Thwaites from the World Resources Institute said the foreign aid pledges were not especially ambitious. “The climate finance plan the Biden administration launched today starts to play catch up after the U.S. was largely absent for the last four years — when many other developed countries already doubled their climate finance, and some committed to doubling again before 2025,” he said.

The two-day summit comes at a time when scientists are warning that governments must take decisive action to prevent global temperatures from rising more than 1.5 degrees above preindustrial levels. The consequences of exceeding that threshold includes mass species extinctions, water shortages and extreme weather events that will be most devastating to the poorest countries least responsible for causing global warming.

Officially, nations that are party to the Paris agreement are obligated to announce their new targets for emissions cuts in time for a United Nations conference in Scotland in November.

In an executive order announced late Thursday morning, the White House also said it would “seek to” end investments in “carbon-intensive” fossil fuel projects abroad. It was also not clear if that referred to money for gas pipelines and terminals. The United States is a leading exporter of gas, and development aid has been used to promote the expansion of gas, including in Africa.

Mr. Kerry said in his remarks that no country alone would be able to finance the transition to a green economy, adding that private banks and asset managers would have to align their investments accordingly.

The summit is the first of its kind to be convened by a United States president, and Mr. Biden is joined by other world leaders like Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany, President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia, and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada.

While the summit is an international one, Mr. Biden’s speech was also aimed at a domestic audience, focusing not just on America’s obligation to help cut its global emissions but on the jobs he believes are available in greening the U.S. economy.

“The countries that take decisive actions now” to tackle climate change, Mr. Biden said, “will be the ones that reap the clean energy benefits of the boom that’s coming.”

Mr. Biden’s target of 50 percent to 52 percent by the end of the decade calls for a steep and rapid decline of fossil fuel use in virtually every sector of the American economy and marks the start of what is sure to be a bitter partisan fight over achieving it.

One of Mr. Biden’s biggest political obstacles is international: Republicans say the United States should not be asked to sacrifice if the world’s largest emitters will swallow U.S. efforts in their pollution.

President Biden’s new pledge to slash the United States’ greenhouse gas emissions over the coming decade is long on ambition and short on specifics, but experts say that success would require rapid and sweeping changes to virtually every corner of the nation’s economy, transforming the way Americans drive to work, heat their homes and operate their factories.

In several recent studies, researchers have explored what a future America might look like if it wants to achieve Mr. Biden’s goal: cutting the nation’s planet-warming emissions at least 50 percent below 2005 levels by the year 2030.

By the end of the decade, those studies suggest, more than half of the new cars and S.U.V.s sold at dealerships would need to be powered by electricity, not gasoline. Nearly all coal-fired power plants would need to be shut down. Forests would need to expand. The number of wind turbines and solar panels dotting the nation’s landscape could quadruple.

It’s achievable in theory, researchers say, but it’s an enormous challenge. To get there, the Biden administration would probably need to put in place a vast array of new federal policies, many of which could face obstacles in Congress or the courts. And policymakers would have to take care in crafting measures that do not cause serious economic harm, such as widespread job losses or spikes in energy prices, that could lead to blowback.

“It’s not an easy task,” said Nathan Hultman, the director of the University of Maryland’s Center on Global Sustainability. “We won’t be able to sit back and hope that market forces alone will do the job.”

In two recent studies, Mr. Hultman and his colleagues modeled possible paths to achieving at least a 50 percent reduction in emissions by 2030. The changes would be far-reaching:

·         By 2030, half of the country’s electricity would come from renewable sources such as wind, solar or hydropower, up from one-fifth today.

·         New natural gas plants would be built largely with technology that can capture carbon dioxide instead of releasing it into the atmosphere — technology that is still in its infancy.

·         Virtually all of the 200 remaining coal plants in the U.S. would shut down unless they, too, can capture their emissions and bury them underground.

·         By 2030, two-thirds of new cars and S.U.V.s sold would be battery-powered, up from roughly 2 percent today.

·         All new buildings would be heated by electricity rather than natural gas.

·         The nation’s cement, steel and chemical industries would adopt stringent new energy-efficiency targets.

·         Oil and gas producers would slash emissions of methane, a potent heat-trapping gas, by 60 percent.

·         The nation’s forests would expand, and farming practices would be reworked, so that they pull 20 percent more carbon dioxide out of the air than they do today.

Biden Wants to Slash Emissions. Success Would Mean a Very Different America.

Hitting the targets could require a rapid shift to electric vehicles, the expansion of forests nationwide, development of complex new carbon-capture technology and many other changes, researchers said.

China’s leader, Xi Jinping, promises to ‘strictly limit’ coal.

President Xi Jinping of China said his country would “strictly limit increasing coal consumption” in the next five years and phase it down in the following five years.

That’s significant because China is, by far, the world’s largest coal consumer and is continuing to expand its fleet of coal-fired power plants. Coal is the dirtiest fossil fuel.

Mr. Xi repeated his pledge from last year to draw down carbon emissions to net zero by 2060. And, in a pointed reminder to his host, President Biden, he said that the industrialized countries of the West had a historic responsibility to act faster to reduce emissions.

The United States is history’s largest emitter. China is today’s largest emitter.

Mr. Xi added a conciliatory note by saying “China looks forward to working with the international community, including with the United States” on addressing climate change.

Neither China nor India, whose prime minister, Narendra Modi, spoke after Mr. Xi, made any new commitments to ramp up their climate ambitions. Mr. Modi repeated India’s pledge to expand its fleet of renewable energy projects, urged people to make lifestyle changes to address climate change, and announced a vague new partnership with the United States on green energy projects.

India’s once-galloping economy has slowed sharply and the country is currently in the throes of a deadly coronavirus surge.

Beyond the big two of the United States and China, here’s an overview of what some American allies and adversaries have said so far at President Biden’s virtual climate summit with world leaders on Thursday.

·         Prime Minister Justin Trudeau pledged that Canada would reduce its greenhouse gas emissions 40 percent to 45 percent from 2005 levels by 2030, a step up from its previous target of a 30 percent reduction in the same time frame. This is a significant increase in ambition for an economy that is still highly dependent on oil extraction, and a sign that Mr. Biden’s decision to increase the United States’ target is having an influence on his closest allies.

·         Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India reiterated his country’s promise to install 450 gigawatts of renewable energy capacity by 2030, but made no new commitments. He argued that India’s per capita emissions were far smaller than those of other major emitters and said, “We, in India, are doing our part.”

·         Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga announced that Japan would cut emissions 46 percent below 2013 levels by the end of the decade, a significant show of solidarity with the United States.

·         President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia, the world’s fourth largest greenhouse gas polluter, made only a vague pledge to “significantly reduce the net accumulated emissions in our country by 2050.” He highlighted a carbon pricing pilot program that he said would allow the Sakhalin region to become carbon neutral by 2025, but he said nothing about construction of the Nord Stream 2, a major natural gas pipeline that is opposed by both climate advocates and United States national security advisers.

·         President Jair Bolsonaro of Brazil pledged to eliminate illegal deforestation by 2030, a promise that was met with extreme skepticism by those in the environmental community who have seen the destruction of the Amazon skyrocket under his watch. Mr. Bolsonaro also vowed that Brazil would become carbon neutral by 2050, a decade earlier than it had previously said it would. Ending deforestation by 2030, he claimed, would cut Brazil’s emissions 50 percent.

The New York Times April 21, 2021

By David Leonhardt

 

Good morning. Derek Chauvin, convicted of second-degree murder, is the exception of exceptions. 

Reactions to the guilty verdict at George Floyd Square in Minneapolis.Victor J. Blue for The New York Times

One in 2,000 The murder conviction of a police officer is an exceedingly rare event.
There have been only seven murder convictions of officers for fatal police shootings since 2005, according to Philip Stinson of Bowling Green State University. That suggests the chances of a killing by the police leading to a murder conviction are about one in 2,000.
Yet a jury in Minneapolis yesterday convicted Derek Chauvin of second-degree murder (as well as two other charges) for killing George Floyd last May. A typical sentence for that felony in Minneapolis is 12½ years in prison, although prosecutors have asked for more and the maximum is 40 years. A judge will sentence Chauvin in about eight weeks.
Floyd’s relatives said they felt relieved by the verdict. “I finally have the opportunity to hopefully get some sleep,” Philonise Floyd, George’s brother, said.
Chauvin’s conviction does not automatically signal a new era of police accountability. The Floyd case was the exception of all exceptions. A video, watched around the world, showed Chauvin pressing his knee onto Floyd for more than nine minutes. That footage led to weeks of protests that were among the largest in U.S. history. And at the trial, the so-called blue wall of silence — that is, many officers’ willingness to protect colleagues, regardless of their misbehavior — crumbled. “For so many, it feels like it took all of that for the judicial system to deliver just basic accountability,” President Biden said late yesterday.
Most of those factors will not apply to future police killings. Those cases will instead be more likely to resemble the deaths of Michael Brown, Philando Castile, Eric Garner, Freddie Gray, Daniel Prude, Tamir Rice, Breonna Taylor and hundreds of other cases that have not lead to a murder or manslaughter conviction.

Still, the Chauvin trial is not guaranteed to be simply a one-off event, either. Some of the same factors that make it distinct could also cause it to have a wider impact. Before Floyd’s death, it was hard to think of a signature trial of an American police officer, one that received sustained national attention, as the trial of a celebrity might.

This trial, of course, did receive such attention. Television networks halted their normal coverage yesterday to broadcast the verdict, and the president of the United States organized his schedule around it.
That attention has made it clear that a police officer can be charged with murder and convicted of it. It’s an idea that will linger in the minds of prosecutors and future jurors. Perhaps most important, it may affect the thinking of other officers, when they find themselves considering whether to use physical force when it is not necessary.
Commentary roundup
  • Barack Obama: “True justice requires that we come to terms with the fact that Black Americans are treated differently, every day. … And it requires us to do the sometimes thankless, often difficult, but always necessary work of making the America we know more like the America we believe in.”
  • Rosa Brooks, in Politico: “While the national media understandably puts a spotlight on Chauvin, we should not forget that three other Minneapolis police officers were also on the scene that day last May: Officers Tou Thao, Thomas Lane and J. Alexander Kueng. Their sheer passivity was, in some ways, more stunning than Chauvin’s casual cruelty.”
  • Quin Hillyer of The Washington Examiner: “The judicial system worked. It usually does. It won’t bring George Floyd back, or eliminate all bad policing — but police are now on notice.”
  • Michele Norris: “Can we all sing a praise song for Darnella Frazier who had the presence of mind to film that video that made such a difference.”
  • Many police shootings are justified, German Lopez of Vox has written. But Stinson, the Bowling Green professor of criminal justice, told Lopez that the number of officers charged with wrongdoing “seems extremely low.”
  • Rodney Floyd, George Floyd’s younger brother, called for the passage of the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, which would make it easier to prosecute police officers for misconduct. The House has passed it, and Biden favors it.
  • In Times Opinion, Esau McCaulley writes about the verdict.
More Times coverage
  • Minneapolis residents greeted the verdict with joy and relief. “We matter,” one woman said outside the convenience store where Floyd was killed.
  • Racial justice activists saw the trial as a step toward a larger goal. “We have not yet dealt with the disease,” a pastor in Chicago said.
  • These photos show reactions to the verdict around the country.
  • An officer fatally shot a 16-year-old girl in Columbus, Ohio, yesterday. The police said she had threatened two other girls with a knife.

Scenes from around the country after Mr. Chauvin was found guilty of murdering George Floyd.

Cheers erupted in Minneapolis on Tuesday after a jury found the former police officer Derek Chauvin guilty on all counts in the murder of George Floyd last May.

The verdict capped a three-week trial that captivated America. With often-emotional testimony, prosecutors sought to highlight who Mr. Floyd was, repeatedly playing the widely viewed bystander footage of his death and arguing that Mr. Chauvin knew he was harming the man whose neck he was kneeling on, but did not stop.

During a news conference after the decision was announced, Mr. Floyd’s family and supporters celebrated but noted how rarely officers are convicted after using lethal force. Many mentioned Daunte Wright, a Black man who was fatally shot by a white officer during Mr. Chauvin’s trial.

“He should still be here,” Mr. Floyd’s brother Philonise Floyd said of Mr. Wright. “We have to march. We will have to do this for life. We have to protest because it seems like this is a never-ending cycle.”

The Times positioned photographers around the country to capture reactions to the verdict. Here’s what they saw.

President Joe Biden on Thursday unveiled executive actions to curb gun violence, which he described as an “epidemic” and an “international embarrassment.” Nearly 20,000 people died of gun violence last year, and another 24,000 died by suicide. Adam Winkler of the UCLA School of Law is an expert on gun policy and joins Judy Woodruff to discuss Biden’s measures.

Read the Full Transcript

  • Judy Woodruff:

Recent mass shootings in Georgia and Colorado have once again put gun reform in the national spotlight.

Nearly 20,000 people died of gun violence last year, and another 24,000 from suicide.

Today, President Biden unveiled steps he is taking to curb what he calls an epidemic and an international embarrassment.

  • Pres. Joe Biden:

The idea that we have so many people dying every single day from gun violence in America is a blemish on our character as nation.

Whether Congress acts or not, I’m going to use all the resources at my disposal as president to keep the American people safe from gun violence. But there’s much more that Congress can do to help that effort.

  • Judy Woodruff:

Some of the actions the president announced today include curbing so-called ghost guns, which are home-assembled firearms that often lack serial numbers and don’t require background checks, tightening regulations on stabilizing braces, which can turn an AR-style semi automatic pistol into a rifle.

The Justice Department will create a model for states to enact what are called red flag laws, which allows judges to seize firearms from people deemed dangerous. And the department will also release a report on firearms trafficking.

In addition, President Biden nominated David Chipman, an adviser at the gun control group Giffords, to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

We turn to Adam Winkler of the UCLA School of Law, an expert on gun policy.

Adam Winkler, thank you so much for being here.

As we were saying, gun deaths off the charts, mass shootings happening every day. There was one in South Carolina yesterday, another one today in the state of Texas. How much difference can these steps President Biden is announcing make?

  • Adam Winkler:

Well, these steps are modest steps. They certainly don’t tackle all of the major issues in America’s gun violence problem.

However, they’re not insignificant steps. Take, for instance, the rule regulating ghost guns. These are do-it-yourself, homemade gun kit that have become increasingly popular and, with the advance of technology, increasingly easy to use. Anyone can buy one of these kits, even if they are prohibited from buying a firearm, and make their own gun.

And we know that these guns are being used more frequently in crime. In California, for instance, one in three guns recovered from crime scenes are do-it-yourself guns without serial numbers.

  • Judy Woodruff:

And we also mentioned making it easier for states to enact these so-called red flag laws.

And you were telling us investing in communities, trying to discourage gun violence can make a difference, too.

  • Adam Winkler:

Well, that’s right. These red flag laws have become popular. And there’s even some bipartisan support for red flag laws.

They enable family members or law enforcement to temporarily take away someone’s firearms when they’re going through some kind of crisis that poses a threat to themselves or to others.

And what the Biden administration is proposing to do is come up with some models, some guidelines, best practices, if you will, for how to do this right. And so that could be an effective tool that some family members who see another family member in crisis can use to prevent the next mass shooting.

  • Judy Woodruff:

And, Adam Winkler, we know that this all reminds us that President Biden is not pushing legislation through Congress right now. It’s a reminder of how difficult that is.

How much influence does the gun rights lobby have, organizations like the NRA, right now with American lawmakers, vs. the influence of groups that want to see gun reform?

  • Adam Winkler:

Well, ironically, we’re seeing both sides very strong in America.

No doubt, the NRA is suffering from a major financial setback. They’re in bankruptcy. They’re being investigated and prosecuted by the New York attorney general. They have got major lawsuits on their hands. But the power of the NRA has always been about the power to influence the single-issue pro-gun voters there are out there, and they’re still out there, regardless of what happens to the NRA.

At the same time, the gun control movement in the last 10 years has been really reinvigorated. We see new organizations that have arisen, a lot more money being spent on gun safety reform, and it’s become an issue that’s really at the top of the Democratic Party agenda, some place it was not 10 years ago.

  • Judy Woodruff:

But still uphill to try to get meaningful legislation passed?

  • Adam Winkler:

Well, right now, it’s not just a gun issue.

(CROSSTALK)

  • Adam Winkler:

Meaningful legislation in the Senate requires 60 votes, and it’s hard to imagine 60 votes for almost any controversial issue these days.

Certainly going to be difficult to get 60 votes on significant gun reform.

  • Judy Woodruff:

And what about the views of the American people? What do we know about that?

  • Adam Winkler:

Well, there’s a huge difference between the views of the members of Congress and the views of the American people.

We see things like universal background checks having over 80 percent support. The restriction on ghost guns, we see polls show about 75 percent support. And yet these laws can’t get adopted through Congress itself, because, let’s face it, the Republican Caucus is 100 percent opposed to gun control, and there’s probably even some swing state Democrats who would vote against significant gun reform, too.

  • Judy Woodruff:

We heard President Biden say today, if he had one thing he could get done, it would be the ability to sue gun manufacturers over gun deaths.

Would that make a big difference?

  • Adam Winkler:

It could make a difference in the long run.

The gun makers were able to get a law passed by Congress back in the second Bush administration to restrict the ability of people to sue gun makers when their guns are used in crime. As a general matter, a gun maker is not going to be liable if a criminal misuses their firearms.

But we have seen in other industries that these kinds of lawsuits can open the door and open the window to see how these gun makers are operating, how they’re marketing their weapons. And it may be that they’re marketing them in ways designed to appeal to people who have violent desire to use guns offensively.

It would be a tough road, but it’s certainly possible.

  • Judy Woodruff:

Adam Winkler with the UCLA School of Law, thank you so much.

  • Adam Winkler:

Thank you.

U.S. Capitol Police Officer William ‘Billy’ Evans killed in the line of duty

Officer William “Billy” Evans, who had served 18 years in the department. Evans was killed when a man rammed a car into two officers at a barricade outside the U.S. Capitol on April 2. (U.S. Capitol Police/AP)

On Friday afternoon, hours after U.S. Capitol police officer William “Billy” Evans, was killed in the line of duty, two of his fellow officers pulled into the quiet suburban Virginia neighborhood where he was often seen with his children.

They began unloading several plastic bags of supplies — including snacks and a rack of blue Gatorade — from the back of their black SUV and carrying the haul into Evans’s house, stepping across a tidy, grassy garden with two turquoise lawn chairs, angled slightly toward each other. Neighbors stepped from an adjacent home conferred in soft voices with the officers, asking what else was needed and how they could help.

Evans was among two officers injured when a vehicle rammed into them outside the U.S. Capitol, according to acting U.S. Capitol Police chief Yogananda Pittman.

His death comes less than three months after the agency’s officers fought to protect lawmakers by clashing with a riotous mob that descended on the Capitol building in January, leaving one officer dead and scores of others injured.

On Friday, Pittman was forced to address yet another deadly attack at the Capitol complex — this one resulting in the death of Evans, who joined the force in 2003 and was a member of the first-responder unit.

The assailant, identified by several people familiar with the investigation as Noah Green, was shot and killed by police.

“It is with profound sadness that I share the news of the passing of Officer William ‘Billy’ Evans this afternoon from injuries he sustained following an attack at the North Barricade by a lone assailant,” Pittman said in a statement.

Evans was the sixth member of the Capitol Police force to die in the line of duty, according to the department. The casualties include Officer Brian D. Sicknick, who died Jan. 7, one day after the attack on the U.S. Capitol.

3. Supporters of Donald Trump who thought they were sending a single donation were charged over and over by his campaign operation.

A Times investigation found that the charges were part of an intentional scheme to boost revenue to Mr. Trump’s struggling presidential campaign. Recurring online donations were set up by default, and a fine-print disclaimer and opt-out language became increasingly hard to find.

Demands for refunds spiked, and complaints to banks and credit card companies soared. The magnitude of the money involved is staggering for politics: All told, the Trump campaign and the Republican Party raised $1.2 billion with WinRed, a for-profit donation processing service, and refunded roughly 10 percent of it.

In effect, the overcharges were an interest-free loan — eventually paid off with some of the tens of millions of dollars Mr. Trump raised after the election under the guise of pursuing his unfounded claims of election fraud.

WATCH LIVE: Biden gives remarks on COVID-19 response and vaccinations

Streamed live 11 hours ago, 3.29.2021, PBS NewsHour

More than two months after taking office, President Joe Biden will hold his first formal news conference March 25, taking questions from reporters in a nationally televised event in the East Room. Biden has answered about as many queries from the press as his predecessors, according to the Associated Press, but they’ve usually come at the end of other events or while traveling. But he’s the first president in four decades to reach this point in his term without a formal Q&A, and has been under increasing pressure to hold one.

How students are using art to channel COVID-19 fears

By ALLYSON ESCOBAR | aescobar@scng.com |

PUBLISHED: March 25, 2021 at 8:05 a.m. | UPDATED: March 26, 2021 at 11:39 a.m.

They say art can express emotions, promote healing or offer a “window into the soul.”

That also can be said of Southern California students who have illustrated the stress and constant changes of these pandemic times in their artwork.

In February, Daniel Richter, a fourth-grade teacher in Wildomar in Riverside County, asked his students to express how they felt through digital art.

Richter, who teaches at Sycamore Academy of Science and Cultural Arts — a charter arts school with campuses in Wildomar and Chino Hills — said he was “blown away” by the submissions and conversations about the coronavirus crisis.

“I know how I feel, as an adult,” he said. “But I wanted to know how my 9- and 10-year-olds, and all students, feel about coming to school with masks on, or not being able to see their friends, or be able to sit in a movie theater.”

“A picture is worth a thousand words — so drawing a picture is sometimes easier,” the former child behavioral therapist said. “You can draw a face with multiple emotions, each representing what’s going on in the child. Getting these kids to open up and talk about their emotions (was) a really good reminder that we’re all going through this. We’re all hurting, too.”

Robin Gormin, a teacher at Fairmont Private Schools in Anaheim, said students “are really taking the brunt of this pandemic.”

“They are isolated, lonely and feeling like everything has been taken from them,” she said.

Here’s a sampling of art from students in kindergarten through high school in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties, from moving paintings and photography to digital drawings and mixed media.

She said the painting reflects seniors feeling “faceless and forgotten” during their last years of high school, but still beautiful within. (Photo courtesy of Keith Brockie)

Rachel Levine, 16, from Huntington Beach, is a student at Fairmont Preparatory Academy in Anaheim. “The meaning behind my artwork is the leaning state of movement that is shown through the fruit, representing the constant state of imbalance that everyone is experiencing right now. I was inspired by Rene Magritte to put facial features on the fruit to bring a more surreal look, outside of the gravity-defying element that is seen with the tower.” (Photo courtesy of Heather Soodak)

Nyzell Guzman, 18, from Inner-City Arts in Los Angeles, created ‘Esperanza’ — meaning ‘hope’ in Spanish. “Many of us want to be hopeful during these difficult times. La Virgen de Guadalupe in the center of my piece is a symbol of faith and identity. During these tough times, many people look up to her for peace,” Guzman said. “The Folklorico dancers and roses represent what brings joy to the Latinx community. This piece represents LA’s Latinx community and is a reminder that all will be well.” (Photo courtesy of Christopher Maikish, Inner-City Arts)

I wanted to show the rift of power between the government and the struggle of the people,” Salcido said. “I also incorporated Edward Hopper’s use of perspective which was always looking into a scene from afar. Due to my interest in community engagement, I wanted to have reflections of all the things that have made this year a roller coaster.” (Photo courtesy of Elisabeth Payne)

A digital drawing by Daria Kosianenko, a sophomore at Fairmont Preparatory Academy in Anaheim, who is living in Moscow, Russia due to the pandemic. The drawing, “Waiting in the Shadows,” shows the COVID-19 virus in the form of a horse hiding its true face before revealing her essence, responsible for the death of thousands. A bell hangs in her ear as a warning, but not everyone wants to listen to its sound. For Daria, this work and the situation that we all experienced means the word: despair.

Ellie Kim, 8, a third-grader at Fairmont Private School in Anaheim, created her own version of Edvard Munch’s famous expressionist painting, “The Scream.” Teacher Robin Gormin prompted her students to draw something that would make them scream.

1 big thing: Biden’s multifront response to Atlanta rampage

President Biden and Vice President Harris have responded swiftly to the massacre earlier this week, including restructuring tomorrow’s previously planned trip to Atlanta:

 ·  They scrapped an event celebrating the COVID stimulus and instead will meet with Asian American and Pacific Islander leaders.

·  The White House has lowered flags in memory of the eight killed, including six Asian women, and administration officials have reached out to the AAPI community.

Margaret Talev, Axios’ managing editor for politics, said the response reflects both Biden’s instincts and his engagement with the community during last year’s campaign.

·  Biden looked to AAPI voters to help put him over the top in the final weeks of his race against Donald Trump — and exit polling suggested they supported Biden over Trump by roughly 1 to 2.

·  Biden acknowledged the hate and fear many in the community were experiencing around bogus COVID-related messaging. “These racist acts must stop,” he said, vowing to address the targeting “with urgency and seriousness.”

  • The House of Representatives passed bills that would give millions of so-called Dreamers and other undocumented immigrants a path to citizenship. Senate Republicans are likely to block the bills.
  • Russia recalled its ambassador to the U.S. after Biden said he thought that President Vladimir Putin was a “killer” and vowed that Putin would “pay” for interfering in the 2020 election.

The Washington Post: Important developments in the pandemic. 

By Ben Guarino
with Lindsey Bever
 Email

The latest

As vaccine doses become increasingly available in the U.S., hesitancy will become a major obstacle in getting shots into more arms. Those reluctant to get a vaccine represent a not-insignificant portion of the population. Almost 1 in 2 Republican men, and 47 percent of Donald Trump’s 2020 supporters, recently told NPR-PBS NewsHour-Marist pollsters they would choose to not get vaccinated against the coronavirus.

The nation’s top infectious-disease expert, Anthony S. Fauci, called those survey results “disturbing” on NBC News Sunday. He suggested the former president should use his popularity among Republicans to encourage vaccination.

But even a pro-vaccine ad starring Trump may not be as influential as it sounds. That’s one finding from a focus group of vaccine-hesitant Trump voters who said they would not be swayed by political appeals. If they are seeking information from conservative politicians, they should look elsewhere than Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) — who mistakenly believes having covid-19 is superior to the vaccine. It’s not. A previous infection is no reason to avoid getting the shot.

It’s no surprise that misinformation about vaccines thrives on social media. But a Facebook study of that problem, according to documents obtained by The Washington Post, contained some remarkable elements: For instance, half of all vaccine-hesitant content came from just 111 Facebook users.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is also conducting its own internal study of substandard information. A review of the agency’s pandemic recommendations posted in the Trump era, ordered by new CDC director Rochelle Walenskyfound some guidelines issued in summer 2020 that were “not primarily authored” by CDC staff. Parts of that guidance ignored the best scientific evidence. One set of recommendations, in August, discouraged people from getting tested if they didn’t show symptoms; facing widespread criticism, it was removed a month later.

Meanwhile on Monday, Germany became the largest European country to stop using the AstraZeneca vaccine over fears of blood clots. France and Italy also did so. Manufacturer AstraZeneca was adamant that its vaccine is not linked to an increased risk of clots.

Other important news

Vandals painted anti-Asian slurs on the windows of a ramen restaurant in Texas after its owner spoke out against the elimination of the state’s mask mandate.

Duke University is under a mandatory quarantine following the school’s worst one-week surge in cases, which a spokesman said was linked to fraternity parties.

Police fired pepper balls and pepper spray into a rowdy, unmasked crowd at Miami Beach. City officials are worried spring breakers pose infection risks.

Advocates for migrants object to ICE’s covid-19 protocols, which included dropping off asylum seekers who tested positive at a bus station, for releasing detainees.

Biden Laments 500,000 Coronavirus Deaths in US

By  Steve Herman

White House Bureau Chief

February 22, 2021 08:28 PM

President Joe Biden speaks about the 500,000 Americans that have died from COVID-19, Feb. 22, 2021, in Washington.

WHITE HOUSE – As the nation marked 500,000 deaths because of COVID-19, U.S. President Joe Biden at twilight Monday walked to a White House South Portico decorated with black bunting and 500 candles.

Alongside the president were first lady Jill Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris and her husband, Doug Emhoff, who is known as the second gentleman. They stood silently as the Marine Corps band played the Christian hymn, “Amazing Grace.”

As the music concluded, Biden, a Catholic, made the sign of the cross.

A few minutes earlier at the Cross Hall on the first floor of the White House, Biden asked the nation to join in the moment of silence and, in a subdued tone, directed remarks to those who had lost loved ones to the virus.

“It seems unbelievable, but I promise you the day will come when the memory of the one you have lost brings a smile to your lips before a tear to your eye,” the president said. “We will get through this, I promise you.”

He also spoke of the cruelty of death amid the pandemic.

“So many of the rituals that help us cope, that help us honor those we loved, haven’t been available to us,” the president noted. “As a nation, we cannot and we must not let this go on.”

The president on Monday ordered U.S. flags on federal property lowered to half-staff for five days.

President Joe Biden, first lady Jill Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, and Doug Emhoff participate in a moment of silence during a ceremony to honor the 500,000 Americans that died from COVID-19, at the White House, Feb. 22, 2021.

The National Cathedral in Washington, meanwhile, tolled its bells 500 times to honor the lives lost to the coronavirus.

It was a year ago Tuesday that President Donald Trump declared to reporters on the White House South Lawn as he departed for India that “we have it very much under control,” adding “very interestingly, we’ve had no deaths.”

The first fatality from the virus in the United States had actually occurred more than two weeks before the president’s remarks, but it was not until April 2020 that authorities confirmed 57-year-old Patricia Dowd of San Jose, California, had died of COVID-19.

Amid the gloom of a half-million deaths and the emergence of variants of the virus, there are expressions of optimism from top U.S. government officials.

The seven-day average of deaths in the country is continuing to decline, according to Dr. Rochelle Wolensky, director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

A nationwide COVID-19 vaccination campaign is under way and about 13% of the population has received at least one dose, although winter weather in recent days has slowed the pace of immunization in some states.

Officials continue to plead for people to wear masks in public and maintain social distancing as the United States is “still seeing a lot of disease – 66,000 cases per day,” Wolensky said during a video briefing with reporters Monday.

The president’s chief medical adviser, Dr. Anthony Fauci, who heads the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, also cautioned “we are still at an unacceptably high baseline level,” preventing the resumption of normal society.

The United States has suffered the most deaths from the coronavirus and accounts for nearly 20% of total global deaths from the virus, although it is home to just 4% of the world’s population.

That is partly blamed on a lack of coherent federal response to the pandemic during the Trump administration. Trump, who left office January 20, had clashed with his own health experts and he primarily left it to the individual 50 states to figure out how to combat the virus.

Biden’s team “inherited a mess,” Florida’s emergency management director, Jared Moskowitz, told a state legislative committee last month.

In 2020, the virus shaved a full year off the average life expectancy in the United States, the biggest decline since World War II.

The loss of so many lives is “a horrific human toll of staggering proportions and incomprehensible sadness,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Monday in a statement, in which she called for swift action by Congress to approve the Biden administration’s American Rescue Plan “to put an end to this pandemic and to stem the suffering felt by so many millions.”

The $1.9 trillion plan by the president is intended to increase the country’s recovery from the economic and health effects of the pandemic.

Some lawmakers have expressed concern about the proposed legislation’s total cost and what it covers.

“I’m prepared to hear ideas about how to make the American Rescue Plan better and cheaper,” Biden said in remarks delivered earlier Monday. “But we have to make clear who we’re helping and who it would hurt.”

Biden Tours Pfizer Vaccine Production Center

By VOA News

Updated February 19, 2021 09:33 PM

U.S. President Joe Biden toured a Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine manufacturing plant Friday afternoon outside Kalamazoo, Michigan, where he touted his administration’s plans to distribute the vaccine to Americans, even as winter weather across the country caused delays.

“We’re now on track to have enough vaccine supply for all Americans by the end of July. That doesn’t mean it’ll be in all Americans’ arms, but enough vaccine will be available,” Biden said.

The president acknowledged that winter weather across much of the country is currently “slowing up the distribution,” but said his administration is on track to reach its goal of administering 100 million shots in its first 100 days.

White House officials said earlier Friday that the winter storms in the Midwest and South had delayed the delivery of 6 million vaccines, which is impacting every state. The delayed doses of both Pfizer and Moderna vaccines represents three days’ worth of shipments.

Even the president’s trip to see Pfizer’s largest plant was delayed a day because of a storm affecting Washington.

President Joe Biden speaks to the press after a tour of a Pfizer manufacturing site, Feb. 19, 2021, in Portage, Mich.

During his tour of the Pfizer plant, Biden walked through an area called the “freezer farm,” where vaccine doses are stored in ultra-cold conditions. Wearing two face masks, the president spoke with some of the plant’s workers. He was joined by Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla and White House coronavirus response coordinator Jeff Zients.

Speaking before Biden, Bourla said Pfizer would more than double vaccine production capacity in the coming weeks. Currently it averages 5 million doses per week. He said the increase was the result in part of improvements in the manufacturing processes at the plant.

In his remarks, the president touted the vaccine’s safety and encouraged everyone to get vaccinated.

“If there’s one message to cut through to everyone in this country, it’s this: The vaccines are safe,” he said.

Earlier Friday, Pfizer and its pharmaceutical partner BioNTech said a new study they conducted indicates their COVID-19 vaccine can remain effective when stored in standard freezers for up to two weeks.

The finding is a significant development since one of the initial drawbacks of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine was that it was required to be stored in ultra-low-temperature freezers not commonly found in standard clinics and pharmacies.

In a statement posted on Pfizer’s website Friday, the companies said they have submitted the new data to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) demonstrating their vaccine is stable when stored at -25°C to -15°C, temperatures commonly found in pharmaceutical freezers and refrigerators.

Also Friday, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said that data collected in the first month of vaccinations in the United States have found no concerning new issues with either the Pfizer- BioNTech vaccine or the Moderna vaccine.

It said data collected from the administration of 13.8 million doses of vaccines between December 14, 2020, and January 13, 2021, showed 6,994 reports of adverse events after vaccination, with 90.8% of them classified as nonserious and 9.2% as serious.

Biden Announces Financial Support for Global COVID Vaccine Program

By Wayne Lee

Updated February 19, 2021 06:16 PM

Pfizer employees handle containers of vaccine as U.S. President Joe Biden tours a Pfizer manufacturing plant producing the coronavirus vaccine in Kalamazoo, Michigan, Feb. 19, 2021.

U.S. President Joe Biden announced Friday a $4 billion pledge to a global campaign to bolster the distribution of COVID-19 vaccines to poor countries.

At his first meeting as president with world leaders at the Munich Security Conference, Biden announced financial support for COVAX, a coalition tasked with distributing vaccines to low- and middle-income countries.

“Even as we fight to get out of the teeth of this pandemic, a resurgence of Ebola in Africa is a stark reminder that we must simultaneously work to finally finance health security, strengthen global health systems, and create early warning systems to prevent, detect and respond to future biological threats because they will keep coming,” Biden said at the virtual meeting.

President Joe Biden participates in a virtual event with the Munich Security Conference in the East Room of the White House, Feb. 19, 2021.

Biden pledged $2 billion that will fund the COVAX program through 2022. The pledge follows an initial $2 billion contribution that the U.S. Congress appropriated two months ago that should be released by the end of this month.

The COVAX program is jointly operated by the World Health Organization, an agency of the United Nations responsible for international public health. Former President Donald Trump withdrew from the WHO after accusing it of covering up China’s blunders in managing the virus at the start of the public health crisis.

“We have to work together to strengthen and reform the World Health Organization,” Biden said. “We need a U.N. system focused on biological threats that can move quickly to trigger action.”

Biden used the financial commitment to encourage G-7 partners to fulfill their pledges to the COVAX program and make additional investments in international vaccine development and distribution.

Paris accord 

Also on Friday, the United States officially rejoined the Paris climate accord, the most comprehensive global effort to combat global warming. Biden warned of dire consequences if nations don’t do more to reduce carbon emissions.

“We can no longer delay or do the bare minimum to address climate change,” he said. “This is a global existential crisis. We will all suffer the consequences if we fail.”

Biden called on world leaders to “rapidly accelerate our commitments to aggressively curb our emissions and hold one another accountable for meeting our goals and increasing our ambitions.”

Biden previously said he would consider climate change when reviewing every major domestic and foreign policy decision his administration faces.

Biden to Debut at G-7 with Focus on Vaccines, Economy and China

By Reuters

February 19, 2021 08:52 AM

FILE – U.S. President Joe Biden hosts a meeting with labor leaders to discuss coronavirus response legislation and the president’s infrastructure plan in the Oval Office at the White House in Washington.

LONDON – U.S. President Joe Biden will attend his first meeting with Group of Seven leaders on Friday to discuss plans to defeat the coronavirus, reopen the battered world economy and counter challenges posed by China.

The COVID-19 pandemic has killed 2.4 million people, tipped the global economy into its worst peacetime slump since the Great Depression and upended normal life for billions.

Biden “will focus on the global response to the pandemic, including vaccine production, distribution of supplies” and efforts to fight emerging infections, White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said on Thursday.

He “will also discuss the global economic recovery, including the importance of all industrial countries maintaining economic support for the recovery” and “the importance of updating global roles to tackle economic challenges such as those posed by China,” Psaki said.

The call with G7 leaders at 1400 GMT is a chance for Biden, a Democrat who took over as president from Republican Donald Trump on Jan. 20, to project a message of re-engagement with the world and with global institutions after four years of his predecessor’s “America First” policies.

Besides Biden, Italy’s new prime minister, Mario Draghi, will be a new face at the leaders’ virtual table, though he is famous for “doing whatever it takes” at the European Central Bank to save the euro during the European debt crisis.

Vaccine drive

Britain, which holds the rotating chair of the G7 and is trying to recast itself as a steward of the rules-based international system following Brexit, will ask members to help speed up the development of future vaccines to 100 days.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson is keen to build ties with Biden, who did not support Brexit and who, as a presidential candidate, last year publicly warned Britain against endangering peace in Ireland.

Johnson has said he is interested in the idea of a global treaty on pandemics to ensure proper transparency after the COVID-19 outbreak which originated in China.

The Biden administration will pledge $4 billion to a coronavirus vaccination program for poorer countries in hopes of prying loose bigger donations from other governments, U.S. officials said on Thursday.

Britain, which has pledged 548 million pounds ($766 million) to the COVAX program co-led by the World Health Organization, will ask other G7 partners to give more.

China

China will also be on the agenda.

In his first major foreign policy speech as president, Biden cast China as the “most serious competitor” of the United States.

“We’ll confront China’s economic abuses; counter its aggressive, coercive action; to push back on China’s attack on human rights, intellectual property, and global governance,” Biden said on Feb. 4.

The United States will keep tariffs imposed on Chinese goods by the Trump administration in place for now, but will evaluate how to proceed after a thorough review, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said.

The G7 of the United States, Japan, Germany, United Kingdom, France, Italy and Canada has a combined gross domestic product of about $40 trillion – a little less than half of the global economy.

An inside look at Trump’s failed coronavirus response | America’s Pandemic

Premiered Oct 29, 2020  Washington Post

This video is the final installment of a three-part documentary series by the Washington Post. Read more on The Washington Post: https://wapo.st/3ovFoQx? Despite decades of warnings and preparation, President Trump has claimed that covid-19 “came out of nowhere.” He downplayed the coronavirus as it began to take hold in the U.S., disregarding the advice of experts and politicizing a health crisis. Through interviews with former Trump administration officials Mark Harvey and Olivia Troye, along with Washington Post reporters Dan Balz and Yasmeen Abutaleb, “Playing it down” explores why the White House was slow to respond to the pandemic, and the far-reaching consequences of its inaction. After months of mixed messages, contradictory policies, divisive rhetoric — and more than 220,000 deaths — the president continues to insist the virus will one day disappear.

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

  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

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.”

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.

  • In their first impeachment filings, Donald Trump’s lawyers denied that he incited the Jan. 6 assault on the Capitol and argued that the Constitution did not permit the Senate to try a former president.
  • House impeachment managers asserted that history supported the Senate’s right to try a former president and said that Trump was “singularly responsible” for the riot.
