Melina Mara/Pool via REUTERS/File PhotoWASHINGTON, June 24 (Reuters) - Former U.S. Vice President Mike Pence on Thursday said he was proud of his decision to approve the certification of Democrat Joe Biden's victory in the 2020 presidential race, pushing back against fierce criticism from former President Donald Trump. Some of the rioters on Jan. 6 chanted threats including "hang Mike Pence," who had refused Trump's request that he block certification of Biden's win, an authority the vice president did not have. "But the Constitution provides the vice president with no such authority." Trump did not attend the ceremony and has lashed out at Pence, saying that he lacked courage.

Mike Pence must soon decide whether to hit back at former President Donald Trump. Thursday night might finally be the night former Vice President Mike Pence — a man with his own 2024 presidential ambitions — starts striking back at Donald Trump, who almost got him killed six months ago. He stood by Trump through the January 6 attack on the US Capitol, after Trump directed a riotous mob, shouting "Hang Mike Pence! Some Republicans familiar with both Trump and Pence are skeptical he will ever fully break from Trump.

Former Vice President Mike Pence on Thursday night made his most forceful attempt yet to separate himself from his former boss, Donald J. Trump, on the issue of certifying the 2020 election results. Speaking at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, Calif., Mr. Pence defended the constitutionally mandated role he played in certifying the Electoral College vote on Jan. 6, when a violent mob of Trump loyalists — some chanting “Hang Mike Pence” — stormed the Capitol while the president did nothing for hours to stop them. “I will always be proud that we did our part on that tragic day to reconvene the Congress and fulfilled our duty under the Constitution and the laws of the United States,” Mr. Pence said, noting that as vice president, he had no constitutional authority to reject or return electoral votes submitted to Congress by the states. “The truth is, there is almost no idea more un-American than the notion that any one person could choose the American president.”It was the furthest that Mr. Pence, a potential Republican presidential candidate in 2024, has gone yet in defending his role that day or distancing himself from Mr. Trump, to whom he ingratiated himself during their four years together in office.

Opinion | Economics in a Post-Truth Nation
  + stars: | 2021-06-24 | by ( Paul Krugman | ) sentiment -1.00   time to read: +2 min
Democrats did mark down their economic views after the 2016 presidential election, but not that much. The real question about the 2016 election aftermath is why Republican assessments became so much more favorable, even though not much had changed. Tucker Carlson and his ilk have been peddling the vision of a nation all “boarded up,” its citizens cowering in fear of riots and crime. Whatever the explanation, post-truth politics has expanded its domain to the point that it overrides everyday experience. On the right, at any rate, the economy that voters perceive no longer bears much relationship to reality.

REUTERS/Leah Millis/File PhotoJune 23 (Reuters) - A U.S. federal judge on Wednesday harshly criticized Republican lawmakers for downplaying the deadly Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, questioning "what planet" they are living on. Hundreds of supporters of then-President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol that day in a failed attempt to stop Congress from certifying Democrat Joe Biden's presidential election victory. The violence left five dead, including a Capitol Police officer, and more than 480 people have been arrested on charges linked to the attack. "It was not an accident that it turned violent," he said of the Capitol attack. "I went there to support and show support for President Trump, and I’m ashamed that it became a savage display of violence that day," Morgan-Lloyd said during the court hearing.

Biden Pushes for Wartime Tax Rates

Garner, who served as vice president during Franklin D. Roosevelt’s first two terms, was talking about how to finance World War I. Top individual tax rates remained at 91% until 1964, when Congress passed John F. Kennedy’s tax reduction proposal and set the top rate at 70%. Thereafter, individual rates rose until Donald Trump brought rates down to 37% (plus the 3.8% Medicare tax) for individuals and 21% for corporations. The Biden administration proposes to raise the top individual rate to 39.6% (plus 3.8%) and to 28% for corporations. But accounting for state and local income taxes and stacking on additional crushing Democratic tax proposals would push the rates far higher.

A pilot looks at a plane after exiting a Delta Airlines flight at the Ronald Reagan National Airport on July 22, 2020 in Arlington, Virginia. Delta Air Lines told staff on Monday that it expects to hire more than 1,000 pilots by next summer, the latest move by an airline to cater to a rebound in travel demand. Delta in April said it would resume hiring midyear as bookings began to recover from the coronavirus pandemic slump, starting with about 75 pilots from June through August. Delta told pilots on Monday that it would add 13 crew schedulers and a supervisor to answer pilot calls and questions. American, United Airlines, Spirit Airlines and other carriers have restarted or plan to resume pilot hiring this year.

A member of a ground crew walks past American Airlines planes parked at the gate at Ronald Reagan National Airport in Washington, U.S., April 5, 2020. American Airlines said the move would bring additional resilience and certainty to its summer operations. Airlines and other transportation operators have seen a quick ramp up in demand as U.S. COVID-19 vaccination rates increased and travel restrictions lifted in recent weeks. So far in June, the TSA has registered nearly 35 million air passengers. The company said some of its vendors were also struggling with labor shortages, impacting the airline's operations.

While we’ve spent the past five years obsessed with Russia’s meddling in America, we’ve conveniently forgotten America’s meddling in Russia. “Yanks to the Rescue: The Secret Story of How American Advisors Helped Yeltsin Win” proclaimed the headline. Some countries say they’re strong, some say heroic, some say divine or tragic or misunderstood. I loved the freedom, I loved the suburbs, I loved holidays full of eating and fireworks, I loved the ample personal space, and I loved, deeply loved, Ronald Reagan — the American president who fought for my freedom. Soon enough I realized that while for me, the American flag symbolized hope, for those Salvadorans, the American flag meant death.

President Joe Biden signed a law decreeing Juneteenth a national holiday on Thursday, adding the first new holiday to the federal calendar since President Ronald Reagan added Martin Luther King Jr. Day in 1983. A San Francisco Bay-area collective called HellaCreative developed a database of nearly 700 companies and nonprofits recognizing Juneteenth. Paul Argenti, a professor of corporate communication at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College, said making the day a national holiday could give companies more motivation to observe the holiday. Twitter and Square CEO Jack Dorsey said last year that both companies would observe the day as a company holiday. Representatives of Best Buy, Starbucks, Allstate, Target, Nike, Lyft, and Zillow all said their respective companies are each in their second year of recognizing Juneteenth as a company holiday.

CHICAGO—Former President Barack Obama, once a community organizer, has gotten a taste of community organizing himself as preservationists and other activists have slowed the construction of his presidential center. The groundbreaking for the center to celebrate Mr. Obama and press its mission of fostering future leaders could finally happen late this summer after years of lawsuits, fundraising and federal reviews. The eventual opening, previously scheduled for 2021 before the challenges arose, is poised to set a modern record for time between a presidency and completion. Presidential libraries opened in recent decades have done so in about half the time as what is expected for Mr. Obama’s center, Wall Street Journal calculations show. The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library welcomed visitors just more than 1,000 days after Mr. Reagan’s last day in office.

Twenty-eight Chinese air force aircraft, including fighters and nuclear-capable bombers, entered Taiwan's air defence identification zone (ADIZ) on Tuesday, the Chinese-claimed island's government said. Democratically-ruled Taiwan has complained over the last few months of repeated missions by China's air force near the island, concentrated in the southwestern part of its air defence zone near the Taiwan-controlled Pratas Islands. read more"The Ronald Reagan Strike group did not interact with any Chinese military aircraft," Carrier Strike Group 5 spokesperson Lt. Cmdr. Joe Keiley said in an emailed statement responding to questions on whether the Chinese aircraft had approached them. This "to a certain degree was targeting our deployments in the east and increasing air defence pressure around our ADIZ", the source said.

Yet four decades after leaving office, Jimmy Carter has lived to see a more positive reappraisal of his presidency. More recently, Stuart E. Eizenstat, Carter’s White House domestic affairs adviser, added a detailed, if wonky, memoir-study that makes a case for a consequential presidency. Still, Bird is able to build a persuasive case that the Carter presidency deserves this new look. It was Carter, and not Ronald Reagan, who began the process of opening up the Great Society economy. Indeed, Carter brushed off criticisms that he was too insensitive to the political consequences of what he was doing.

Whatever path the decade takes will of course matter for the trajectory of stocks, bonds, currencies and commodities. Here’s a look at which decade the 2020s could resemble. Fast forward to the 2020s and the global economy is expected to grow 6% this year, a rate not seen since the 1970s. “Many people think we are in the 1930s but I think we will wake up somewhere in the 70s,” said Amundi’s Blanque. Agreement on a minimum global tax rate is evidence of a possible shift, although it is still early days.

YouTube just started letting ads run on non-Partner Program videos around the world. The change could drive some advertisers and small creators to rival platforms like TikTok and Snapchat. A new policy that will let YouTube run ads on videos outside of its Partner Program just took effect around the world. But Lowcock said YouTube has a mixed track record and that these new channels won't provide the metadata, or tags, that Partner Program creators share. In recent years, YouTube has run ads on videos containing animal cruelty, political extremism, and climate-change misinformation.

To jump-start talks, Mr. Netanyahu agreed to release Palestinian prisoners, but he also approved the construction of thousands of new homes in the West Bank, “a profound humiliation to Abbas,” who began to abandon hope in the talks, Mr. Kerry wrote. If he didn’t provoke the Palestinians to quit talks, Mr. Lustick argued, his demands would starve them of the political support they needed to retain legitimacy. A more forgiving view is that Mr. Netanyahu saw no chance of success. “That confidence is not there.”Countering IranThere was a time when Mr. Netanyahu was so popular in the United States that some said he could be elected president.
