Good Morning DC. Biden is determined to work through “quiet, intensive diplomacy.”

Good Morning DC! It’s Wednesday and a good day as any to remind you that long working hours can kill you

Biden wants to see “an end to the suffering of the Israeli and the Palestinian people.”

Psaki said that the strategy of the Biden administration is to work through “quiet, intensive diplomacy.” She stated that Biden has been doing this long enough to know that the best way to end an international conflict is typically not to debate it in public.”Biden will continue to remain closely engaged behind the scenes,” Psaki reaffirmed.

So far, there have been more than 60 calls, including three calls the President has had with Prime Minister Netanyahu.  

The future of the automobile industry is electric. Biden believes that the United States should be a larger percentage of the market than they are at this point. “China should not have the larger percentage of the market.” 

Biden proposed a $174 billion investment into the American Jobs Plan to support the growth in electric vehicles in the United States. 

The industry must grow in order to catch up with the demands of the future. Right now, the U.S. market share of EV sales is 1/3 the size of the Chinese EV. 

My name is Joe Biden and I am a car guy,” said the president. 

The January 6th commission is back in the news. There was a deal on the Hill but Kevin McCarthy came out against it. 

Pelosi responded by saying, “Democrats made repeated efforts to seek a bipartisan compromise. But Leader McCarthy won’t take yes for an answer.” She added that “ The American people expect and deserve the truth about what happened on January 6th in a manner that strengthens our Democracy and ensures that January 6th never happens again.”

Scalise disagrees. “This Commission cannot investigate the political violence leading up to and following the attack on the 6th, including the June 2017 shooting at the Republican Congressional baseball practice, and the deadly attack on Capitol Police on April 2, 2021,” he urged House Republicans to vote against.

Trump issued an order. “Republicans in the House and Senate should not approve the Democrat trap of the January 6 Commission,” he instructed. “It is just more partisan unfairness and unless the murders, riots, and fire bombings in Portland, Minneapolis, Seattle, Chicago, and New York are also going to be studied, this discussion should be ended immediately,” he said. “Republicans must get much tougher and much smarter, and stop being used by the Radical Left. Hopefully, Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy are listening!

And we can now go in circles until the members cast the vote. 

Capitol rioter Jacob Chansley, known as QAnon Shaman, still claims that the actions and words of President Trump, caused him to storm the Capitol on January 6. However, his argument didn’t work

U.S. District Judge Royce C. Lambert explained his order to keep Chansley detained awaiting his trial, saying, “If the defendant truly believes that the only reason he participated in an assault on the U.S. Capitol was to comply with President Trump’s orders, this shows the defendant’s inability to exercise his independent judgment and conform his behavior to the law.”  

Many other participants in the January 6 Capitol Riots continue to use the “Trump Defense” in hopes of staying out of legal trouble. 

Do Greeks love Trump? How corrupt is Greek media under a weak Democracy? What is the future of journalism? Thanos Dimadis, President of Foreign Press Correspondents Association-USA talks this and more in an exclusive Pavlovic Today interview.

Across the pond, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that he does not “See anything conclusive at the moment to say that we need to deviate” from England’s lockdown roadmap as cases of the Indian variant increase.

Johnson said “We will know a lot more in a few days’ time” amid reports that ministers are considering whether to return to a local or regional tiered lockdown system or to delay the end of restrictions on June 21.
