Former President Donald Trump could announce a 2024 bid ahead of schedule. Trump thinks the announcement could distract from the January 6 hearings, the NYT reported. Trump has long teased a 2024 White House run and has continued to hold campaign-style rallies, all while stopping short of saying definitively if he plans to enter the race. Now, Trump is considering announcing a run far earlier than expected, possibly even this month, in part as an attempt to distract from the hearings, the outlet reported. Sources close to Trump told The Times he thinks announcing a 2024 bid soon could be good for him, even as others in the party aren't so sure.

HONG KONG — Extensive efforts by Apple and other Western tech companies to curtail their business with Russia over its invasion of Ukraine have raised a question for product users in China: Could the same thing happen there? Chinese officials reject any comparison between Taiwan and Ukraine, saying only Ukraine is an independent country. Schaefer pointed out that Chinese regulations require Apple and other companies to store Chinese customers’ information on servers inside the country. Before the war in Ukraine, China was already pursuing a national strategy of “tech independence,” emphasizing indigenous innovation and the recruitment of overseas talent. “Now I’m really worried that if anything happened, a company like Apple would deactivate my phone and my data,” he said.

Median home prices rose above $400,000 for the first time in May. WASHINGTON—The Biden administration is weighing a move to trim mortgage costs for first-time and lower-income buyers, a bid to boost affordability when average home prices are at an all-time high. President Biden’s affordability push has so far largely focused on steps to ease constraints on the supply of new homes, a primary driver of a rapid run-up in home prices in recent years. Steps to ease costs on certain borrowers could help modestly but more meaningful steps to address affordability are likely to come only from increased supply, housing experts said.

But the gas tax will do little to ease Americans’ pain at the pump. So one more week’s increase in gas prices could wipe out most or all of the benefit of the tax cut. Changes in the gasoline tax won’t increase oil production or refining. Worse yet, the gas tax cut would weaken the only real solution to high fuel prices — the profit motive. It won’t help anyone that much, let alone the people who are suffering the most from higher gas prices.

Interior Secretary Deb Haaland said fewer than 11 lease sales — or even no lease sales at all — could occur, with a final decision not due for months. Today, we put forward an opportunity for the American people to ... provide input on the future of offshore oil and gas leasing,″ said Haaland, whose agency oversees drilling on federal lands and waters. The proposal brought immediate backlash from both environmentalists — who accused Biden of betraying the climate cause — and oil industry officials and allies, who said it would do little to help counter high energy prices. The oil industry and its allies say the delay could cause problems in planning new drilling and potentially lead to decreased oil production. The government held an offshore lease auction in the Gulf of Mexico in November that brought $192 million in bids.

Two Arizona state lawmakers who promoted former President Donald Trump's stolen election falsehoods have been issued subpoenas by the Justice Department as federal investigators ramp up their probe of the Jan. 6 insurrection. The subpoenas seek information related to the Justice Department's investigation into the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, Quintero told NBC News in an email Friday. "President Fann and Senator Townsend are fully cooperating in releasing whatever emails and text messages they are requesting," Quintero said. State Rep. Kelly Townsend speaks at the Arizona Capitol in Phoenix on May 8, 2019.

Russia’s messages with missiles tell West to back off

Putin has denied that Russian forces targeted the Kremenchuk mall, saying it was directed at a nearby weapons depot. In late April, Russian missiles struck Kyiv barely an hour after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy held a news conference with visiting U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres. "This says a lot about Russia's true attitude toward global institutions," Zelenskyy said at the time. The Russian president recently warned that Moscow would strike targets it had so far spared if the West supplied Ukraine with weapons that could reach Russia.

Senate Democrats must soon clear their reconciliation bill with Senator Kyrsten Sinema. One proposal to tax multimillionaires has fallen out of the spending bill, Insider has learned. Senate Democrats are inching closer to a deal with Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia to resurrect swaths of President Joe Biden's stalled economic agenda once known as Build Back Better. She preferred negotiating directly with Biden and senior White House officials on the size and scope of their economic spending plan. One Senate Democratic aide familiar with the negotiations told Insider the surtax has been knocked out of consideration.

Under his leadership, the central bank unleashed a quick and creative response to an unprecedented economic crisis. By lifting rates, the central bank aims to slow Americans' spending and close the gap between supply and demand. Higher rates also slow economic growth, meaning companies will likely hire at a slower pace and issue smaller raises in the near future. Google searches for " recession " surged to record highs amid fears that the Fed's aggressive hiking plans could slow economic growth to a halt. The central bank took a gamble early in the pandemic, Nygaard said, allowing inflation to run hotter than usual in pursuit of a faster labor-market recovery.

The third quarter could be a turning point for stocks this year, separating the dismal first half from a possible year-end rally. Wall Street's economists have mixed views on when and whether the economy enters a recession, but investors are more pessimistic. "The classic recession historically has been a tight Fed and oil shock coming at the same time. I think the fourth quarter proves optimism, providing we get capitulation in the third quarter," said Stovall. Bank of America's Harris said if there's no big spike in oil, inflation should peak in the next couple of months, but the issue for markets will be how quickly it abates.

British documentary maker Alex Holder told BBC News he now has two armed guards who follow him "everywhere." Holder said he had been called a spy after giving evidence to the January 6 House committee. A British documentary maker who filmed the Trump family in the lead-up to his 2020 election defeat told BBC News that two armed guards now travel with him for protection. "Apparently, according to some, I'm an undercover FBI agent, some think I'm an MI6 spy," Holder told BBC News. "I record history, I will provide any committee or investigation what they need in order to do their investigation," Holder told BBC News.

Biden was poised to tap an anti-abortion attorney for a federal judgeship on the day Roe was overturned. The White House was set to nominate Chad Meredith for a lifetime appointment in Kentucky. President Joe Biden was poised to nominate an anti-abortion attorney to a federal judgeship on the same day that Roe v. Wade was overturned by the Supreme Court, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal. Meredith's nomination to the federal court has not been announced by the White House, but there are no signals that the administration has reversed course. Spokespeople for the White House have so far not confirmed the Meredith nomination, saying "we do not comment on vacancies."

An air raid siren wailed, and Ukrainians, well-practiced in the fifth month of Russian President Vladimir Putin's war, scrambled for safety. They were abuzz about the timing of Putin's shopping mall strike, knowing that it was aimed as much at them as Ukraine. The following day NATO leaders would sign off on a new Strategic Concept, highlighting Russia as their most present danger but including China for the first time as a matter of common concern. The leaders of Australia, Japan, South Korea and New Zealand attended a NATO summit for the first time as partners and guests. In this contest between a determined despot and rallying democracies, the forces for good had an excellent week.

But a raft of GOP candidates looks ready to take him on, a sign he’s losing some of his dominance in Republican circles. Trump’s former U.N. ambassador, Nikki Haley, publicly floated a possible presidential bid Thursday in early state Iowa. But Jan. 6 is only one factor in the jockeying to take on the undisputed leader of the GOP, sources say. Of the Republicans who might run in 2024, DeSantis and his team have denied the rumors the most. “It would be a lie to say he’s not watching DeSantis and that DeSantis might be a big reason Trump announces early,” the Republican said.

There were six Supreme Court justices who voted to overturn Roe v. Wade last week. However, in the aftermath of the ruling, there has been an intense and particular focus on a different justice: Clarence Thomas. “I was a radical.”Thomas seems to have been put on this path by the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. King had advanced a particularly optimistic view of white liberals and cross-racial advocacy. It should be noted that these eugenics initiatives were pushed heavily by white liberals of the time, also in the name of helping the marginalized and disadvantaged. Thomas has no trust in similar social justice rhetoric being deployed by abortion rights advocates today.

It captures the reason Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell used extraordinary tactics to engineer the right's 6-3 majority, which is seen as the most conservative Supreme Court in nearly a century. Some are calling for passage of the Judiciary Act, which would add four seats to the Supreme Court. Biden, who opposes Supreme Court expansion, labeled the abortion ruling decision "destabilizing" and called for a filibuster exception to codify the right to end a pregnancy. His calculation has panned out, with scores of Democratic lawmakers saying they don't support Supreme Court expansion. "This is a radical, out-of-control Supreme Court.

WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden will award the Presidential Medal of Freedom to 17 people, including former Rep. Gabby Giffords, Olympic gymnast Simone Biles and U.S. soccer player Megan Rapinoe, the White House announced Friday. Biden will present the medals at a White House event on July 7.

Biles is the most decorated gymnast in American history, with 32 Olympic and World Championship medals, and Rapinoe is an Olympic gold medalist and two-time Women's World Cup champion. The White House said the recipients "demonstrate the power of possibilities and embody the soul of the nation — hard work, perseverance, and faith."

U.S.-China Competition Zeroes In on Growth
  + stars: | 2022-07-01 | by ( Lingling Wei | ) www.wsj.com   time to read: 1 min
President Biden has said he wants to compete with China from a position of strength, and in a recent tweet he cited independent experts’ projection that the U.S. growth could outperform China’s this year. Two leaders who both face domestic economic challenges are shifting some of the focus of their Great Power competition to a race over whose country’s growth is stronger. Over the past month, President Biden twice publicly stated that the U.S. economy might grow faster this year than China’s for the first time since 1976. The statements, which the White House said were based on independent projections, have struck a nerve in Beijing, according to policy advisers and Chinese economists who consult with the government.

Russian missile strikes on a neighborhood in the southern Ukrainian region of Odessa killed at least 21 people, some of them children, according to Ukrainian officials.

REUTERS/Michael A. McCoyWASHINGTON, July 1 (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court's conservative majority has shown in its blockbuster abortion ruling and other high-profile decisions in recent days that it is fearless when it comes to overturning - and even ignoring - historic precedents. The conservative justices have become increasingly assertive since the addition of former President Donald Trump's third conservative appointee Amy Coney Barrett in 2020. The conservative majority also consigned to oblivion rulings from 2016 and 2020 that struck down Republican-backed state abortion restrictions. Conservative Justice Clarence Thomas has been forthright about his willingness to ditch Supreme Court precedent. Conservative Justice Samuel Alito seemed to take the same view in the June 24 abortion ruling, writing that the Roe landmark was "egregiously wrong."
