President Biden has tweeted…

He has two tweets so far for Wednesday; I’m sharing them with Tuesday’s tweets…

When Tuesday’s post was posted, President Biden had tweeted 3 times. He added 7 tweets giving him a Tuesday Tweeting Total of 10 tweets and 0 retweets.

The 1 minute and 6 second video celebrates the one year anniversary of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law:

President Biden: My predecessor promised infrastructure week. Well infrastructure week never came. It became a punch line. On my watch, it’s no longer infrastructure week, it’s infrastructure decade and it’s a headline. One year ago today, I signed a historic the bipartisan infrastructure law. A once-in-a-generation investment in our nation’s roads, bridges, railroads, ports, airports, clean air, clean water, and a clean energy future. I signed it so that America is positioned to win the 21st century global economy. That means better roads and bridges, faster and safer commutes, better and affordable internet, no more lead in our water, and good paying union jobs. From capping orphan gas wells in Appalachia, which are leaking methane, to high-speed internet in the rural Southwest, we’re connecting communities along I-375 in Detroit to rebuild rail bridges in the Northeast and communities everywhere in between. There are now over 6,900 projects moving forward in every state and every territory all across America. And we’re just getting started.

There is lots of information posted at the linked shared by President Biden. I can’t share all the information cause of the mixed bag formatting and links. Here is the opening paragraph:

Delivering Results from President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law

President Biden forged consensus and compromise between Democrats, Republicans, and Independents to demonstrate our democracy can deliver big wins for the American people. After decades of talk on rebuilding America’s crumbling infrastructure, President Biden delivered the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law – a historic investment in America that will change people’s lives for the better and get America moving again.

The picture and the quoted text are not from the same remarks. I have as yet located when the picture was taken, but I’d have to say it was sometime earlier this year or at the end of last year based on the coat.

Moving on.

On October 19th 2022 President Biden offered remarks on the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. The YouTube is 33 minutes and 1 second long. His full remarks can be found here.

President Biden: Federal infrastructure funding is helping states and cities with these projects all across the country. But the Infrastructure Law also invests in people and companies that are going to build our future, like electric vehicles and advanced batteries that are going to power those vehicles.

President Biden: And we’re doing it right away, centered around workers and communities and building the economy from the bottom up and the middle out.

It’s a new feature at White

Basically, as the tweets suggest it lists the Biden-Harris Administrations accomplishments.

I took this tweet out of order–in order to keep like with like.

This thread was posted after midnight (just barely) U.S. time.

Tuesday AP reported that Russian missiles crossed into NATO member Poland and killed two people.

Following the attack White House National Security Council Spokesperson Adrienne Watson issued the following statement:

We’ve seen the reports out of Poland and are working with the Polish government to gather more information. Shortly after receiving these reports, National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan spoke with Chief of the National Security Bureau of Poland Jacek Siewiera.

We cannot confirm the reports or any of the details at this time. We will determine what happened and what the appropriate next steps would be.

White 11/15/2022

The White House posted a readout of President Biden’s call with President Andrzej Duda of Poland:

President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. spoke with President Andrzej Duda of Poland and expressed deep condolences for the loss of life in Eastern Poland earlier this evening. President Duda described Poland’s ongoing assessment of the explosion that took place in the eastern part of the country near the border with Ukraine. President Biden offered full U.S. support for and assistance with Poland’s investigation. President Biden reaffirmed the United States’ ironclad commitment to NATO. The two leaders said that they and their teams should remain in close touch to determine appropriate next steps as the investigation proceeds.  

White 11/15/2022.

While attending the G20 summit the leaders held an emergency meeting to discuss the missile attack on Poland. The White House posted the following joint-statement:

Today, the Leaders of Canada, the European Commission, the European Council, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the United States met on the margins of the G20 Summit in Bali and released the following statement:
We condemn the barbaric missile attacks that Russia perpetrated on Ukrainian cities and civilian infrastructure on Tuesday.  
We discussed the explosion that took place in the eastern part of Poland near the border with Ukraine. We offer our full support for and assistance with Poland’s ongoing investigation. We agree to remain in close touch to determine appropriate next steps as the investigation proceeds. 
We reaffirm our steadfast support for Ukraine and the Ukrainian people in the face of ongoing Russian aggression, as well as our continued readiness to hold Russia accountable for its brazen attacks on Ukrainian communities, even as the G20 meets to deal with the wider impacts of the war. We all express our condolences to the families of the victims in Poland and Ukraine. 

White 11/15/2022.

President Biden offered short remarks following the meeting:

Thanks for being here. I — as you saw, I just met with the leaders of NATO and the G7 and — to talk about the latest events in Europe, and I briefed them on my discussions with President Duda of Poland, as well as NATO Secretary General Stoltenberg. And we agreed to support Poland’s investigation into the explosion in rural Poland, near the Ukrainian border. And I’m going to make sure we figure out exactly what happened.

Our empathy — sympathy goes out to — apparently, two people were killed.

And then we’re going to collectively determine our next step as we investigate and proceed. There was total unanimity among the folks at the table.

And we also discussed the latest series of Russian missile attacks, which are continuing the brutality and inhumanity that they’ve demonstrated throughout this war against Ukrainian cities and civilian infrastructures. And they’ve been totally unconscionable, what they’re doing. Totally unconscionable.

And the moment when the world came together at the G20 to urge de-escalation, Russia continues to — has chosen to escalate in Ukraine, while we’re meeting. I mean, there were scores and scores of attack — missile attacks into western Ukraine.

We support Ukraine fully in this moment, and we have — we have since the start of this conflict. And we’re going to continue to do whatever it takes to give them the capacity to defend themselves.

Q Mr. President, is it too early to say whether this missile was fired from Russia?

THE PRESIDENT: There is preliminary information that contests that. I don’t want to say that until we completely investigate. But it is — I — it’s unlikely, in the minds of the trajectory, that it was fired from Russia. But we’ll see. We’ll see.

Q Mr. President, has Poland suggested invoking Article 4 or 5 from NATO, sir?

THE PRESIDENT: The consensus is we’re going to probably have a meeting of the — of the — of the ambassadors. So that’s — it looks like we’re going to go do next.

Thank you.

White 11/15/2022.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said on Wednesday that there is no indication “that this was the result of a deliberate attack.” He went on to say that the preliminary investigation into the incident suggests that it was “likely caused by a Ukrainian air defense missile fired to defend Ukrainian territory against Russian cruise missile attacks.” He added that he wanted it clear this was not Ukraine’s fault and that “Russia bears ultimate responsibility, as it continues its illegal war against Ukraine.”

It’s being reported that Polish President Andrzej Duda said similar:

Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy tweeted yesterday:

I saw this tweet this morning from CNN’s Kaitlan Collins:

President Biden has added 1 more tweet giving him 3 tweets so far for Wednesday.

The above is basically letting us all know, the 2024 election cycle has already started…
