      Jan. 6 Protest Organizers Say They Participated in ‘Dozens’ of Planning Meetings With Members
      of Congress and White House Staff
      (by Hunter Walker)

      Two sources are communicating with House investigators and detailed a stunning series of allegations to Rolling Stone, including a promise of a “blanket pardon” from the Oval Office

      “As the House investigation into the Jan. 6 attack heats up,
      some of the planners of the pro-Trump rallies that took place in Washington, D.C.,
      have begun communicating with congressional investigators and sharing new information about what happened when the former president’s supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol. Two of these people have spoken to Rolling Stone extensively in recent weeks and detailed explosive allegations that multiple members of Congress were intimately involved in planning both Trump’s efforts to overturn his election loss and the Jan. 6 events that turned violent.”

    Ungrateful
    The Lincoln Project

    The Lincoln Project’s Rick Wilson said in a statement provided to PoliticusUSA,

    “During the primary, and in certain parts of Virginia, Glenn Youngkin was as big a fan of Donald Trump as anyone, but now that it’s time to close the deal with Virginians, Youngkin is begging the former president to stay away,
    This dynamic is representative of today’s Republican Party:
    Court Trump and his base to win the primary and then run away from the MAGA world as fast as possible.
    Our message to Trump with this ad is simple: You’re being played.”

    An Open Letter in Defense of Democracy

    “We are writers, academics, and political activists who have long disagreed about many things.

    Some of us are Democrats and others Republicans. Some identify with the left, some with the right, and some with neither. We have disagreed in the past, and we hope to be able to disagree, productively, for years to come. Because we believe in the pluralism that is at the heart of democracy.”

    Climate Change Poses a Widening Threat to National Security

    “Intelligence and defense agencies issued reports warning that the warming planet will increase strife between countries and spur migration.”

    ““Much of the carbon emissions driving climate change have come from rich nations but the consequences are being borne disproportionately by the poor,” Dr. Garg said. As a result, wealthy countries have “an obligation to support climate refugees.”

    (https://www.nytimes.com/2021/10/21/climate/climate-change-national-security.html)

    1. The G20 could, on their own, mitigate most of anthropogenic climate change.

    Considering that 85% of global anthropogenic carbon emissions come from G20 nations,
    these countries have the ability to massively mitigate climate change on their own.

    According to 2018 data from the Union of Concerned Scientists, China is the leading carbon emitter at 10.06GT (billion metric tons), followed by the United States (5.41GT), India (2.65GT), Russia (1.71GT), Japan (1.16GT), and Germany (0.75GT).

    That’s not to say the rest of the world can’t help.
    At number seven on the list, emitting 0.72GT of carbon in 2018, Iran is the largest emitter of the non-G20 nations.

    Additionally, the emissions from many developing countries are on the rise, and many of these countries feel that by cutting their emissions, their economic growth potential is penalized because of the environmental mistakes of their wealthier neighbors. But sustainable development can help with this dilemma. By using increasingly affordable renewable energy—which could be even more economical if G20 nations invest heavily in it—developing countries can grow their economies without emitting carbon dioxide and contributing to the climate crisis. At COP26, all UN member states will have a seat at the table.”

    Biden Is About Deliver A Huge Win For America With Build Back Better Framework

    The White House has announced an agreement on Biden’s Build Back Better bill that the White House expects Democrats to support.

    Here Is What Is In Build Back Better
    The White House provided the framework to PoliticusUSA:

    Obama Has Biden’s Back As He Praises “Landmark” Build Back Better
    Former President Obama hailed the Biden Build Back Better framework as an important step and a landmark agreement.

    Obama:
    Little Victories Can Add Up To Big Progress

    Former President Obama said in a statement provided to PoliticusUSA:

    “In a country as large and diverse as ours, progress can often feel frustrating and slow, with small victories accompanied by frequent setbacks. But once in a while, it’s still possible to take a giant leap forward.

    That’s what the framework announced today represents. It’s a testament to President Biden and Democrats in Congress who have worked tirelessly to forge this agreement, and to the activists and ordinary Americans who have fought for years, sometimes longer, to bring the America we know closer to the America we believe in.

    Under this framework, families everywhere will be able to afford childcare, and millions of children will get a stronger start through universal preschool. Historic investments in clean energy will create hundreds of thousands of jobs and help us once again lead the world in the fight against climate change. Millions of Americans will gain access to health care, and millions more will save money on their premiums. And we’ll pay for all of it by asking the wealthiest Americans to pay more of their fair share in taxes.

    The Build Back Better framework doesn’t contain everything that the President proposed and that some had hoped. But that’s the nature of progress in a democracy. The good news is that it represents the best chance we’ve had in years to build on the progress we made during my administration and address some of the most urgent challenges of our time. I’m grateful to President Biden, Democrats in Congress, and everyone who has raised their voice and put their faith in government to do big things.”

  47. October 28, 2021 at 4:31 pm

    Remarks by President Biden
    Announcing the Framework for His Build Back Better Agenda and Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill

    “We didn’t just build an Interstate Highway System, we built a highway to the sky.

    We invested to win the Space Race, and we won.

    We were also among the first to provide access to free education for all Americans, beginning back in the late 1800s.

    That decision alone to invest in our children and their families was a major part of why we were able to lead the world for much of the 20th century.

    But somewhere along the way, we stopped investing in ourselves, investing in our people.
    America is still the largest economy in the world. We still have the most productive workers and the most innovative minds in the world. But we’ve risked losing our edge as a nation.

    Our infrastructure used to be rated the best in the world. Today, according to the World Economic Forum,
    we rank 13th in the world.

    We used to lead the world in educational achievement. Now, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development ranks America 35th out of the 37 major countries when it comes to investing in early childhood education and care. And we know how our children start impacts significantly on how they’ll finish.

    We can’t be competitive in the 21st century global economy if we continue to slide.

    That’s why I’ve said all along: We need to build America from the bottom up and the middle out, not from top down with the trickle-down economics that’s always failed us. I can’t think of a single time when the middle class has done well but the wealthy haven’t done very well. I can think of many times, including now, when the wealthy and the super-wealthy do very well and the middle class don’t do well.

    That’s why I proposed the investments Congress is now considering in two critical pieces of legislation — positions I ran on as President, positions I announced when I laid out in the Joint Session to Congress what my economic agenda was.

    These are not about left versus right, or moderate versus progressive, or anything else that pits Americans against one another.

    This is about competitiveness versus complacency. Competitiveness versus complacency. It’s about expanding opportunity, not opportunity denied. It’s about leading the world or letting the world pass us by.

    Today, with my Democratic colleagues, we have a framework for my Build Back Better initiative. And here’s how it will fundamentally change the lives of millions of people for the better.”
