“President #Biden is doing what he has always done, which is to stand w/ #American #workers,” #Transportation Secy Pete #Buttigieg told CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday. Defending the president’s decision to visit, Buttigieg added that a strong deal would be a “win-win” for both parties: “Record #profits should lead to record #pay & record #benefits for the workers.”
The #strike escalation, which spared Ford, added another 5,600 #workers to the work stoppage for a total of 18,300 — about 12% of the #union’s autoworker members.
#Biden’s #Michigan visit — which #labor experts say is probably the first time a sitting president has visited a #strike in at least 100 years — will come a day before his expected rival in the 2024 presidential race, #Trump, plans to deliver his own speech to hundreds of union members in Michigan.
As strikes against the #BigThree #Detroit #automakers enter their 10th day, #Democrats are praising a visit by President #Biden to #Michigan, scheduled for Tues, to show support for #autoworkers on the picket lines.
The WH announced the news Fri, as #UAW members walked out of 38 parts warehouses & distribution centers for #GM & #Stellantis in 20 states.
If America is actually dumb enough to put #trump back in office over #Biden, it will deserve everything it gets. And none of it is good.
🚨Links between Labour & US Democrats revived as crunch election year looms🚨
Starmer’s Labour leadership has paved the way for tighter links with #US Democrats ahead of next year’s crunch elections in Britain & America.

"Today’s announcements from the #Biden #Cancer Moonshot include...a new 'biomedical #data fabric toolbox' to advance cancer research progress.

The US is likely to stay out of the diplomatic tussle between India and Canada over the killing of Khalistan terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar. Signum Chairman Charles Myers said on BNN Bloomberg Television that the US is not aiming to disrupt the progress it's made in its relationship with PM Narendra Modi's government. Canada-India relations took a dip after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said this week that there's "credible" evidence that links the Indian government to the murder of Nijjar. However, India rejected Trudeau’s allegations and criticised his government for not doing enough to tame "anti-India activities" in Canada.

The new office, acc/to #Biden, is one more attempt to answer that call, helping, for example, to “coordinate support for #survivors, families, & communities affected by #GunViolence,” an effort that he said would be similar to #FEMA, the govt’s on-the-ground emergency response team. The office will also seek to ID more executive actions the president can take.
This acct of #Milley’s tenure as chair is based on interviews w/ >a dozen snr #political appointees in both the #Trump & #Biden admins, ret #military officers &DC insiders.

In the cause of the autoworker's revolution
My Medium #blogpost on why a "Crisis by Christmas" is entirely plausible, AND, possible.
The "stakes" have been raised and we better watch out for a crisis of "historic" proportions over the next few months as #Putin and #Xi gang up on #Biden and co., at a time when all three battle domestic problems.
Via @randymot4 The easiest way to dismiss the crazy notion that #Biden supports aid to Ukraine because he was paid off by Burisma or because of blackmail by #Ukraine is to point out that 50 nations provide aid and they are all most certainly not being blackmailed or bribed. However, the #Burisma story is about Russia, not Ukraine.
#HunterBidenBribes = irrelevant to Ukr aid
Gun violence is the ultimate 'superstorm,' President #Biden says as he announces first ever Office of Gun Violence Prevention
The new office of #GunViolence prevention will be led by Vice President #KamalaHarris, a former prosecutor whose experience is perfect for this effort, Biden said. The office's goals include ensuring a bipartisan gun safety law passed last year is fully implemented nationwide along with Biden's executive actions to stop gun violence.
Canada and India relations have been strained over the killing of Hardeep Singh Nijjar, a Canadian citizen who was shot on June 18 near Vancouver.

The most high-profile effort, a #lawsuit known as #MissouriVBiden, is now before #SCOTUS, where the #Biden admin seeks to have the high court block a ruling from the US Court of Appeals for the #5thCircuit that found the #WhiteHouse, #FBI & top federal #health officials likely violated the #FirstAmendment by improperly influencing #tech companies’ decisions to remove or suppress posts on the #coronavirus & #elections.
Wonderful news from @pluralistic
"NLRB rules that any union busting means automatic union recognition"
I don't remember the decision getting much attention when it happened.
"I remember when I was young. We have something in common: I got elected to the Senate when I was 29 years old. Only difference was he was eligible when he got elected to take office; I had to wait 17 days to be eligible. That was 827 years ago." — President #Biden recognizing Congressman Maxwell Frost
We’ve been fighting for this since 2019, with our friends in the movement because we know it’ll make an impact.
This marks a HUGE win and shows us just how young people get shit done.
"Because of all of you here today — all across the country — survivors, families, advocates, especially young people who demand our nation do better to protect all, who protested, organized, voted, and ran for office, and yes, marched for their lives, I'm proud to announce the creation of the first ever White House Office of Gun Violence Prevention [...] After every mass shooting we hear a simple message: Do something. Please do something."

Lights on! The GOP is in utter disarray as their desperate criminal leader Donald Trump pushes them to the brink of a government shutdown for his personal benefit. On the flip side, Democrats are united and effective, with Biden’s strong leadership affirming support for Ukraine, launching new initiatives for the climate, and taking action to combat the gun violence epidemic.

That lack of insight into and appreciation of the literal #existential threat to #humans of our ongoing and worsening #ClimateChange disaster is a clear indication that #Biden is too removed from reality.

It’s amazing and wonderful to see an American president supporting striking #UAW union workers!
“Tuesday, I’ll go to Michigan to join the picket line and stand in solidarity with the men and women of UAW as they fight for a fair share of the value they helped create,” Biden wrote on #X, the platform previously known as #Twitter.

His decision to stand alongside the striking workers represents perhaps the most significant display of #union solidarity ever by a sitting president. #UnionStrong 💪🏼
I don't think any President in my lifetime has explicitly sided with labor over capital in this way.

President Joe Biden has told his Ukrainian counterpart, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, that the United States will provide a small number of long-range missiles (ATACMS) to aid the war with Russia, three U.S. officials and a congressional official familiar with the discussions told NBC News on Friday.
In theory, more choice is better right? Not in America, and right wing #oligarch types understand this, it's why they're playing with the notion, and looking for a political patsy to do their bidding
#Politico has part of the story here:
President Joe #Biden has told his Ukrainian counterpart, Volodymyr #Zelenskyy, that the United States will provide a small number of long-range missiles to aid the war with Russia, three U.S. officials and a congressional official familiar with the discussions told NBC News on Friday.
The officials, who were not authorized to speak publicly, did not say when the missiles would be delivered or when a public announcement would be made.
Sure, Menendez was hiding gold bars in his house and directly asking Congress to do favors for Egypt, but women in Europe thought VP Biden was "sexy". Why is no one looking into Biden's lust-harem, huh?

Including the social cost of carbon in federal purchasing decisions is a very big deal. It creates a huge incentive to choose things which don't burn fossil fuels.

"On Tuesday, Donald Trump told an audience that he beat Barack Obama in the 2016 election and Joe Biden is so incompetent he is likely to start 'World War Two.'
Trump's mental lapses garnered scant notice in major media outlets. CNN called the disconnects from reality 'gaffes,' saying that Trump 'misspoke.'”
Once again: the mainstream media are a major problem for US democracy today, and bear huge responsibility for Trump's continuing appeal to many of us.
"When President Biden was on a five-day whirlwind world tour earlier this month, the media jumped down his throat when he appeared to be 'tired' and 'jet-lagged' during a press conference in Vietnam. The journalists posing as amateur neurologists pronounced Biden 'too old' to be president."

Saying that they're impeaching #Biden 'without evidence' implies that there are credible allegations that haven't been proven. But this is all grounded in the lie that Viktor Shokin was investigating Burisma and that Biden pushed for his ouster for personal reasons rather than bc he was corrupt AF.
