Biden Bits: We Did It Together

It’s Tuesday.

I forgot how dark this song was, but I’m keeping it anyway.

For Tuesday, July 27th, 2021, President Biden has received his daily brief. This afternoon he will visit the Office of the Director of National Intelligence where he will address the Intelligence Community workforce and their leadership.

President Biden has tweeted 1 time so far for Tuesday.

I’m going to be honest kids, I’m running out of ways to cover the Build Back Better agenda, I’ve linked, I’ve screen shot, and I’ve posted bullet points. Hell, I’m even running out of music that fits the agenda, because that’s how much he’s talked about it and how much I’ve already covered it.

For no reason whatsoever it’s just a catchy tune.

When Biden Bits was published for Monday, President Biden had 3 tweets. He added 7 tweets giving him a Tuesday Tweeting Total of 10 tweets and 0 retweets.

Up first, his remarks from yesterday to mark the 31st, anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The video stream is 21 minutes and 43 seconds long. President Biden begins speaking at the 10 minute and 7 second mark. His full remarks can be found here.

President Biden (15:07): And for more than 60 million Americans living with disabilities, the ADA is so much more than a law; it’s a source of opportunity, participation, independent living, and respect and dignity, the bulwark against discrimination, and a path to independence. And for our nation, the ADA is more than a law as well; it’s testament to our character as a people, our character as Americans.  It’s a triumph of American values.  

President Biden (13:14): Then we passed the ADA and made a commitment to build a nation for all of us. All of us. And we moved America closer to fulfilling that promise of liberty and justice, and maybe most importantly, dignity and equality for all. You know, and perhaps most importantly, we did it together. This was a Democratic bill signed by a Republican president. A product of passion and compassion, not partisanship. Progress that wasn’t political, but personal, to millions of families.

President Biden (12:19): I was enormously proud to be a co-sponsor to the ADA as Pat Leahy was, as well, if I’m not mistaken, as a member of the United States Senate. And I’m proud to be here today, as President, alongside so many fearless champions who represent the ongoing legacy of this law, from the foundations to its future.

Normally, I wouldn’t note something from his remarks, that he didn’t share via tweet. But I feel these remarks do need noted:

[11:23] And some of the same folks who fought so hard for this landmark legislation are with us today.  I just got off the phone with one of them — a guy named Tom Harkin.  And yest- — or two days ago, I was on the phone with one who just had his 98th birthday, Bob Dole.  (Applause.)  But no one worked harder than Tony Coelho to get this done.  House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer. 

Others weren’t able to join us today but were instrumental in bringing this to life — dear friends, as I said, like
Tom Harkin and Bob Dole.

And I also spoke — as I said, Bob is — wanted to pass on his regards, as did Tom.  Tom is up in Wisconsin working on — he said on ADA, doing something up there.  Now, he didn’t explain exactly what. 

It was personal to Bob Dole, as well, who lost the use of his right arm in a heroic effort during World War Two; who laid out in a hospital for almost three years — his injury listed, and they also lasted an entire lifetime.

But like so many Americans, he turned his disability,
his apparent limitation, into greater purpose and will.  He made — he made the rights of disabled Americans a lifelong cause.

Up next the one tweet regarding his meeting with Iraq’s Prime Minister.

The leaders offered remarks prior to their meeting. The video below is 5 minutes long. Their full remarks can be found here.

The White House posted a readout of the meeting:

President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. met today with Prime Minister Al-Kadhimi of Iraq to strengthen bilateral coordination under the Strategic Framework Agreement.  Together they discussed expanded initiatives on climate, energy, education, and combatting the COVID-19 pandemic.  They committed to a continued security partnership to ensure that ISIS can never resurge and to allow communities recovering from terror to rebuild with dignity even as the United States shifts to a purely advisory role. The leaders reaffirmed their respect for Iraq’s democracy, the rule of law, and promoting a secure environment for Iraq’s upcoming elections in October. The leaders agreed on the vital importance of holding these elections on time, and welcomed the UN monitoring mission to support their full transparency and fairness.

Together, they discussed the important role of Iraq in the region and the significant diplomatic efforts led by Prime Minister Al-Kadhimi to improve and strengthen Iraq’s relationships in the region.  They lauded the historic visit of Pope Francis to Iraq earlier this year, the trilateral summit with Egypt and Jordan, and the important role Iraq plays in promoting interfaith tolerance and the common bonds of humanity in the Middle East.  They agreed that Iraq’s stability was central to the stability of the entire region.

And yeah, there is a Build Back Better agenda shoutout…

The daily press briefing is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. D.C., time.

At this time, I see no live feed to President Biden’s remarks to the Intelligence Community.

Within seconds of my hitting the publish button he added another tweet for Tuesday, that gives him 2 tweets so far.

This is an Open Thread.
