Threats Rise, U.S. Defense Falls
  + stars: | 2021-06-15 | by ( The Editorial Board | ) www.wsj.com sentiment -0.99   time to read: +1 min
But China, Iran and Vladimir Putin would be more impressed if Mr. Biden wasn’t cutting America’s defense even as he rightly stresses the challenge from the world’s authoritarians. Unremarked in the White House spending deluge is that its trillions for “infrastructure” include little new for defense. Mr. Biden’s $715 billion Pentagon budget for fiscal 2022 is a 1.6% increase over last year. The bipartisan National Defense Strategy Commission and other experts say the Pentagon needs steady 3% to 5% real increases annually to address threats from “near peers” such as China and Russia. President Trump increased defense spending modestly, but that fillip has passed and spending is still at its modern norm of about 3% of GDP.

Peru Faces Political Turmoil After Divisive Presidential Vote Is Disputed

LIMA, Peru—Nine days after a divisive presidential election, Latin America’s once-admired economic star, Peru, is grappling with political upheaval as the trailing candidate insists the vote was stolen and her establishment supporters are demanding a new election. An official result won’t be announced until the election board chooses to accept or decline Ms. Fujimori’s appeals, which seek to annul votes from regions dominated by Mr. Castillo. But while Peru waits for a verdict, the country faces a period of political turmoil as tensions grow between Mr. Castillo—a political outsider—and his adversaries in the nation’s political and business establishment. The turmoil highlights a deepening polarization in Peru in the wake of an 11% economic contraction last year and the world’s highest per-capita death toll from Covid-19. The partisan standoff threatens government efforts to tackle the health and economic crisis and could lead to violent unrest, political analysts say.

WASHINGTON—The Biden administration said it is expanding a program designed to let children and teenagers from Central America come to the U.S. legally, as the government continues to grapple with large numbers of migrant children crossing the southern border illegally. That would allow them to board flights to the U.S. with government permission. The Central American Minors program, started by the Obama administration in 2014, applies to people under the age of 21 coming from the so-called Northern Triangle countries of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, which over the past decade have sent a majority of asylum-seeking migrants to the U.S.-Mexico border. The Obama administration created the program in response to the first wave of unaccompanied minors crossing the border illegally, to offer them a safer alternative to reach the U.S.Former President Donald Trump terminated the program in 2017, saying it was an immigration pathway that had been created without congressional approval. President Biden restarted it March 10.

A former California congressman participated in the January 6 march to the Capitol that preceded the insurrection. Internet detectives identified Dana Rohrabacher in video footage from the scene earlier this month. Rohrabacher told the Portland Press Herald he discouraged his fellow protesters from entering the building. "I marched to protest, and I thought the election was fraudulent and it should be investigated, and I wanted to express that and be supportive of that demand," Rohrabacher told the Press Herald. In an interview with the Press Herald on Monday, Rohrabacher blamed the left-wing for the historic Capitol attack and its ongoing fallout.

In 2002, Congress passed an Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq. In 2020, the AUMF was cited by the Trump administration to justify killing Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani. In a statement on Monday, the Biden administration announced support for legislation that would repeal the 2002 Authorization to Use Military Force Against Iraq. But it also noted that its support was made easier by the fact that no "ongoing military activities" rely "solely" on the 2002 AUMF. The 2002 AUMF has been a staple of the US-led global war on terror.

The meeting marks the return of EU-US collaboration on fighting climate change, after former President Donald Trump pulled the United States out of the Paris Agreement and rolled back environmental regulations. The United States and EU are the world's second- and third- biggest emitters of CO2, respectively, after China. A draft of their summit statement, seen by Reuters, outlines plans for a transatlantic alliance to develop green technologies, and points to sustainable finance as an area for closer transatlantic collaboration. The United States pledged in April to double its climate funding by 2024 from high average levels hit during the Obama administration of roughly $2.8 billion. The EU and its member countries are, taken together, the biggest provider of climate finance to developing countries, contributing 21.9 billion euros in 2019.

The U.S. and EU are nearing a truce on the Boeing-Airbus dispute
  + stars: | 2021-06-15 | by ( Silvia Amaro | ) www.cnbc.com sentiment -0.99   time to read: +1 min
President Joe Biden and his EU counterparts are keen to show that there is new momentum in the trans-Atlantic relationship. CNBC reported last week that the EU was pressing the White House to reach a deal to end trade tariffs imposed during the Donald Trump presidency, in relation to the Airbus and Boeing dispute that first emerged in 2004. Trump imposed duties worth $7.5 billion on European products after the World Trade Organization ruled that the EU had given unfair subsidies to Airbus. Shortly afterwards, the EU imposed tariffs worth $4 billion on U.S. products off the back of another WTO ruling that said the U.S. had granted illegal aid to Boeing. The EU has been keen to set a date to remove these outstanding tariffs and suggested July 11 last week.

EU, U.S. set to unveil truce in 17-year aircraft battle
  + stars: | 2021-06-15 | by ( Philip Blenkinsop | ) www.reuters.com sentiment -0.55   time to read: +2 min
The European Union and the United States were on the verge of announcing a truce on Tuesday in their 17-year conflict over aircraft subsidies, bringing to a close one set of Trump-era tariffs which had soured relations between them. The two sides have been battling since 2004 in parallel cases at the World Trade Organization over subsidies for U.S. planemaker Boeing (BA.N) and European rival Airbus (AIR.PA). On Tuesday they were set to remove them for five years, while still working on an overall deal on what subsidies to allow. Brussels is also pushing what is dubs a new "positive agenda" on trade with Washington, including forging an alliance to drive WTO reform. The two are also likely to agree to cooperate on trade and technology, such as for setting compatible standards and facilitating trade in artificial intelligence.

With Jordan ErbDonald Trump during an event for NBC's "The Apprentice" at Trump Tower in New York City. The Trump Organization's CFO, Allen Weisselberg, took measures as far back as 2018 to keep documents out of the hands of prosecutors, Jennifer Weisselberg, his former daughter-in-law, told Insider. The deal allowed Allen Weisselberg to act as a guarantor on an Upper West Side apartment without showing any proof of income. McConnell pegs the chances of an infrastructure deal at "maybe 50-50": Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell told the conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt that both sides still wanted a deal. McConnell told Hewitt that leaving the seat open was "the single most consequential thing I've done in my time as majority leader of the Senate."

Biden is reportedly expected to bring up Reed's case in his first meeting with Putin on Wednesday. In an NBC News interview this week, Putin called Reed "just a drunk" who "got himself s---faced." Russian President Vladimir Putin has called a former US Marine who is imprisoned in Russia a "drunk" who "got himself s---faced and started a fight" in an interview ahead of his first summit with President Joe Biden. John Sullivan, the US ambassador to Russia, called the case against the 29-year-old "flimsy," and Reed's family have called on President Joe Biden to intervene. However, in an interview with NBC News aired on Monday, Putin said Reed's sentence was fair and labelled him a drunk.

Trump Pressed Official to Wield Justice Dept. to Back Election Claims

WASHINGTON — An hour before President Donald J. Trump announced in December that William P. Barr would step down as attorney general, the president began pressuring Mr. Barr’s eventual replacement to have the Justice Department take up his false claims of election fraud. Mr. Trump sent an email via his assistant to Jeffrey A. Rosen, the incoming acting attorney general, that contained documents purporting to show evidence of election fraud in northern Michigan — the same claims that a federal judge had thrown out a week earlier in a lawsuit filed by one of Mr. Trump’s personal lawyers. Another email from Mr. Trump to Mr. Rosen followed two weeks later, again via the president’s assistant, that included a draft of a brief that Mr. Trump wanted the Justice Department to file to the Supreme Court. It argued, among other things, that state officials had used the pandemic to weaken election security and pave the way for widespread election fraud. The draft echoed claims in a lawsuit in Texas by the Trump-allied state attorney general that the justices had thrown out, and a lawyer who had helped on that effort later tried with increasing urgency to track down Mr. Rosen at the Justice Department, saying he had been dispatched by Mr. Trump to speak with him.

The Quiet Strength of an Old-Growth Forest
  + stars: | 2021-06-15 | by ( Lauren Sloss | ) www.nytimes.com + 1.00   time to read: +2 min
While efforts have been made to replant trees, research in recent decades has sought to show the importance of the diversity found within old-growth forests around the world, versus the near-monoculture of replanted stands of trees. Old-growth forests, particularly redwood forests, are critical actors removing and storing carbon from the atmosphere. Now, less than 10 percent of old-growth forest remains in the United States. The Forest Service, an agency of the Agriculture Department, could not comment on the status of plans to log other mature forests throughout the West. Dr. Simard believes that understanding the complex connections within the forest is essential for both the trees’ survival and our own.

Biden administration unveils plan to tackle domestic terrorism

But it stopped short of calling for new laws to combat domestic threats. "The threat is elevated," the administration official said. "Tackling it means ensuring that we do have the resources and personnel to address that elevated threat." That effort includes an ongoing review by the U.S. Department of Defense over how and when to remove military members who are found to be engaged in known domestic terrorist groups. The Defense Department review is looking at, among other things, how to define extremists, the senior administration official said.

Russian President Vladimir Putin compared his crackdown on domestic dissent with the US prosecution of rioters who attacked the Capitol on January 6, attempting to use American unrest to deflect criticism of his actions. The comments came in a provocative interview with NBC ahead of his summit with President Joe Biden on Wednesday. "They're facing — they're looking— they're— they're looking at jail time, between 15 and 25 years. The Russian president went on to say that protesters arrested in Russia had violated the law. Russia has sought to exploit the domestic divisions in the US highlighted by the Capitol riot ahead of the Wednesday summit between Biden and Putin in Geneva.

“The president routinely says that we are strongest when we work with our friends and allies,” she said. At the Group of 7 summit meeting in Britain, sitting with President Emmanuel Macron of France, Mr. Biden lavished praise on the European Union. That is a marked change from the expressed views of former President Donald J. Trump, who considered the European Union an “economic foe” and competitor and derided NATO members as free-riders on American military spending. In some ways, the European Union, given its enormous economic power as a market and as a trading bloc, has more impact on American life than any other multilateral institution. Mr. Biden wants more support from the Europeans on restraining the damaging effects of the rise of China, with whom the Europeans do a significant amount of trade.

US President Donald Trump speaks at an event honoring Bay of Pigs veterans in the East Room of the White House in Washington, DC on September 23, 2020. In his final days in office, former President Donald Trump pressured top Department of Justice officials to challenge his election loss to President Joe Biden, the House Oversight Committee said Tuesday. The documents show, among other allegations, that Trump in December pressed the Justice Department to file a Supreme Court lawsuit to nullify the election, the committee said. The dump of new materials came hours before the Oversight Committee was set to hold its second hearing on the deadly Jan. 6 Capitol invasion. The committee has also requested transcribed interviews with Mark Meadows, Trump's White House chief of staff at the time, along with four Justice Department officials.

Government spokesman Ali Rabiei was quoted by state media as saying the country had also produced 108 kg of uranium enriched to 20% purity, indicating quicker output than the rate required by the Iranian law that created the process. "Under parliament's law..., the Atomic Energy Organization was supposed to produce 120 kg of 20 percent enriched uranium in a year. According to the latest report, we now have produced 108 kg of 20% uranium in the past five months," Rabiei was quoted as saying. "In the area of 60% uranium production, in the short time that has elapsed..., about 6.5 kg has been produced," Rabiei added. A quarterly report on Iran’s nuclear activities by the U.N. nuclear watchdog in May said that, as of May 22, Tehran had produced 62.8 kg of uranium enriched up to 20%, and 2.4 kg of uranium enriched up to 60%, with the next level down being enriched to between 2% and 5%.
