MiG pilot's family experience insensitivity

New Delhi: The family of the pilot who died when an Indian Air Force MiG-21 fighter jet crashed in Rajasthan’s Barmer on Thursday had a distressing experience of the insensitivity of fellow passengers on the flight from Delhi to Jodhpur to bring the body of the pilot.

A lawyer who traveled on the same plane has tweeted about this. Sherbir Panag, a financial crimes and corporate lawyer, wrote on Twitter that the family of Flight Lieutenant Uneek Bal, one of the two pilots who died in the MiG-21 crash, was on a flight from Delhi to Jodhpur on Friday. They had gone to take possession of the body of Unaweep Bal. They were in the third row seats next to me. As soon as the plane took off, the captain announced that the passengers in the first and second rows should remain seated for a while so that the family with children could disembark early. But even then the passengers in the first two rows were not ready for it. They did not allow children’s families to disembark first. Seeing this, I and some other passengers shouted loudly at these unruly people. Then these ungrateful people sat down. The insensitivity shown by people towards the family of an air force pilot who lost his life for our country is shocking. In this MiG accident, Wing Commander M. Rana also died.

'Supreme Court is now a platform to take action against human rights activists'

MUMBAI: The Supreme Court of India was known around the world as a progressive, defender of human rights. However, now it is becoming known as a platform for those who take action against human rights activists, said senior advocate of the Supreme Court, Chander Uday Singh, on Saturday.

At a program organized by the People’s Union for Civil Liberties on ‘Attack on Democracy and Judicial Accountability’, Singh raised questions about the current role of the Supreme Court. Expressing surprise over the Supreme Court’s verdict on social activists Tista Setalwad and Himanshu Kumar, Singh expressed the view that the country is being degraded by targeting human rights defenders.

Senior lawyer Aspi Chinoy said that ‘we are not living in the India of Mahatma Gandhi-Nehru, but in the India of freedom fighter Savarkar’. He also said that we should struggle keeping this matter in mind. You can be targeted for any action against the government. The word secularism is slowly being destroyed. It has become difficult to express. Chinoy also said that the political importance of minorities is being reduced.

At this time, Gayatri Singh, a lawyer in the Bombay High Court, also said what if the Supreme Court orders action against those who are fighting for the justice of the victims like Tista Setalwad, Himanshu Kumar? This question was raised this time.

Prime Minister Modi's anthology in English next month

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s collection of poems in Gujarati will be available in English in the month of August. Written over many years and titled ‘Aankh Aa Dhanya Che’, this collection of Gujarati poetry was first published in 2007. It has been translated into English by film journalist and historian Bhavna Saumya.

Bhavna Saumya said that these poems depict progress, frustration, trials, perseverance and compassion. Modi’s poetry reflects simplicity and mystery. His poetry mentions the ambiguity and tries to resolve it. His writing style alone proves his uniqueness. They have emotionality, thoughtfulness, energy and optimism. Since the expression is clean, it is effective.

Bail application of Setalvad, Sreekumar rejected; The opinion of the court is that there is truth in the allegations

PTI, Ahmedabad: A sessions court here has ordered social activist Tista Setalvad and former Director General of Police R. B. Sreekumar’s bail application was rejected on Saturday. The two have been arrested on charges of allegedly fabricating evidence to implicate innocent persons in the 2002 Gujarat riots.

Additional Chief Justice D. D. Denying bail to the accused, Thakkar said that the aim of the accused is to destabilize the Gujarat government and bring the state into disrepute.

The court noted that it appears that both the accused had an ulterior motive, an interest in maligning Gujarat for political ambitions. For that he got financial benefits from certain political groups, as well as other countries. The purpose of the accused was to tarnish the image of Gujarat by using false documents to prove the allegation that the post-Godhra riots were orchestrated by the then government.

The Special Investigation Team (SIT) set up to probe the case has alleged in an affidavit that at the behest of late Congress leader Ahmed Patel, he was trying to destabilize the then Chief Minister Narendra Modi-led BJP government in Gujarat. It was part of a bigger conspiracy.

Friday holiday of Urdu schools in controversy; Differences between the ruling BJP-Syukta Janata Dal in Bihar again exposed

PTI, Patna: The differences within the ruling National Democratic Alliance (NDA) in Bihar have once again come to light. A group of BJP leaders once again objected to Urdu schools in Bihar’s Muslim-majority districts being closed on Fridays and open on Sundays. Education department officials are keeping silent on the matter. But sources in the education department said that the controversy started due to a recent notice sent by the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) to the governments of Bihar and Jharkhand.

Sources said that NCPCR sought to know if there was any government order for such arrangement of holidays for schools. Then the issue came up again. Urdu schools, especially those in Muslim-majority districts, have had a Friday holiday for many years. Newly objecting to this, many local leaders of BJP raised questions in front of the media regarding the ‘mixture of religion in education’ in connection with the Friday holiday. The day ‘Friday’ is considered very holy by Muslims and on that day they offer ‘Jumma ki Namaz’. Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s Sanyukta Janata Dal was upset due to BJP’s objection. Since coming to power in alliance with BJP 15 years ago, he has had education portfolio.

Union Janata Dal Parliamentary Board President Upendra Kushwaha said that leaders should not create controversy on every trivial matter. Objectors should note that Sanskrit educational institutions have monthly holidays on Pratipada and Ashtami according to the Hindu calendar. Danish Rizwan, chief spokesperson of Hindusthani Awam Morcha, an ally of the United Janata Dal, said, “Have the parents complained?” Why are institutions closed only on Fridays in Jammu and Kashmir?

But BJP leaders are not ready to back down. BJP MP Rakesh Singh termed his support for Friday holiday for schools as illogical, tweeting that in Turkey, which has a 99 percent Muslim population, Sunday is a holiday, but schools in Kishanganj have a Friday holiday. Kishanganj is the only district in Bihar where Muslims are in majority. Additionally, there are a large number of Urdu schools in nearby Araria, Katihar and Purnia, according to the Education Department.

No direct dispute with Chief Minister Nitish Kumar!

Interestingly, BJP ministers in the state are avoiding direct arguments with the Chief Minister. Despite three decades of political alliance, Nitish Kumar has kept an ideological distance from the BJP. When senior BJP leader and Deputy Chief Minister Tarkishore Prasad was asked about this, he said that every organization that runs the government at the Center or in the state issues guidelines regarding holidays. No organization can go against it. The education department is looking into it. If something is against the rules, it will be corrected.

Booker winner Gitanjali Sri's show postponed after complaint; Objections to writings about Hindu gods

PTI, Agra: Organizers of an event to honor writer Geetanjali Sri, who won the International Booker Prize, have called it off on Saturday. The decision was taken after a police complaint was filed against Gitanjali for allegedly writing offensive things about deities in the novel.

The program was organized by cultural association ‘Rangalila’ and Agra Theater Club. Anil Shulka of Ranglila informed that the program was suspended due to controversy after a complaint against Booker Prize winner Gitanjali Shri.

“Sandeep Kumar Pathak of Hathras in Shadabad has filed a complaint against the writer and has alleged that Gitanjali Shri has expressed objectionable views about the deities Shankar and Parvati,” he said.

Controversy shocks the writer

  • Gitanjali Sri’s ‘Ret Samadhi’, an English translation of Kandbari’s ‘Sand of Tomb’, won the Booker Prize in May.
  • Rambharat Upadhyay, spokesperson of Abhinand Samiti, said that due to this incident, Gitanjali Shri has received a big shock.
  • According to the author, they are being dragged into political controversy for no reason.

Young First Nations athletes travel to Ottawa for a multi-sport event. CBC Sports

Editor’s note: This story was originally published on July 30, 2022. We’re seeing it again today for the National Day of Truth and Reconciliation.

Seventeen-year-old Gabrielle Landry’s volleyball team Triple Trouble has won its first set at the Ontario Summer Indigenous Games. He’s happy, but OSIG isn’t happy with his game in 2022.

“Our skill and our effort were fine, considering that this is the first time we have been able to compete together as a team,” she said.

Landry’s summary – we are good, but we can be so much better – speaks to the untold number of young Indigenous athletes in Ontario nowadays. Almost every First Nation in the province can see that their young athletes, especially their team players, have battled through years of forced isolation brought on by COVID-19.

Indigenous Sport and Wellness Ontario President Mark Laliberte called OSIG a reset switch. The four-day gathering of young athletes is a chance for hundreds of children, their families, their coaches and their communities to reap the benefits of sport and competition.

Watch l Indigenous children compete in the Ontario Summer Indigenous Games:

Ontario Summer Indigenous Games

In #OSIG2022 hundreds of Indigenous children aged 13-18 from the province of Ontario are participating in nine sports. After two years of lockdown, this is your chance to identify talent for the upcoming North American Indigenous Games in Halifax in 2023.

Laliberte also likens the sports and cultural festival to a test balloon. Everyone involved welcomes the return of the big bets contest, and at the same time, everyone is a little out of practice. That’s why OSIG is partly about the here and now – and partly about gearing up for the biggest event in Aboriginal Games, the North American Indigenous Games (NAIG), coming to Halifax in 2023 . For kids ages 13-18, this weekend is not only their first competition in years, it’s a step up for NAIG. There’s nothing like the backdrop of a promise of merit to intensify panic.

That’s why it’s heartbreaking to see and hear them, again back in the mix, packing the University of Ottawa’s gym with volleyball and basketball games. Everyone is enjoying coming back to the old familiar voices, squeaking sneakers, the thundering chants of DEFENCE, the whistle of the referee, the cries of teammates and parents and siblings. Everyone who has come here is loud and proud, excited and grateful, and at the same time, well aware of how many more young players are still out of the house.

Generalization has its limits, but a basic truth about indigenous sports in this province is that the further north you go, the less competitive opportunities there are, and the community has to take its children to their athletic test. One has to dig just as deep to have a fighting chance. Capabilities.

sluggish effect of lockdown

Kerry Andrews is the manager of sports and entertainment for the Algonquins of Pikwakanagan. His people are the hosts of OSIG. They are only an hour’s drive from the nation’s capital, but here too, in a land of relative opportunity, she can see the lingering effects of the lockdown that hit First Nations so hard.

“We’ve seen our youth become isolated, in an isolated community. We haven’t forbade them from participating. And now that things are reopening, we’re still getting them into things again. Struggling to participate.. It hasn’t changed them in a good way and it’s really hard to watch, because they are so young and they should be active and involved and curious, but they took a step back Those other communities that are really isolated? I feel bad for them.”

Which makes Treaty 3’s athletes show even more impressive along and up the northern shore of Lake Superior. Earlier this year, the region’s sports manager, Tania Cameron, had a very ambitious plan to bring four volleyball teams and one or two basketball teams to OSIG. Sandhi 3 Titans (Volleyball) and Swishish (Basketball) will be represented by 45 children and five coaches. This would mean a lot of fundraising. It’s a 26-hour drive from Kenora to Ottawa, and some kids had to take even longer flights or drives to get to Kenora in the first place. So how hungry is this community for youth sports? Cameron rolled into Ottawa in a bus and car convoy: 60 athletes and eight coaches strong.

Under the sunny July skies at O’s Diamonds and Track’s U’s, a full slate of softball and track and field competition is shaping up through the weekend. The Geezy field is being heavily used in a range of high-intensity football training and skills clinics. The game’s levels are a revelation. It’s not easy or fair to single out an athlete from one of the many fleet legs, but Timmins’ Amber Okimaw has ball skills that quietly capture the attention of spectators. She pretty much lets her game do the talking, but Okimaw is too polite to refuse some questions. She has been playing since class one, picked her up in the school yard. Speaking of schools, Amber’s football will be taking her to some famous places. Cal State is on the list. So is Blue Fields State University in West Virginia. Invitations are coming to the camps.

It is impossible to seize such opportunities, in the absence of consistent performance of the game.

fighting for an equal playing field

Victoria Marchand, former Gigis star and national women’s tribal soccer team player, is on the pitch, volunteering, helping promising young players hone their skills. She says that when she saw and heard this crop of players, her jaw dropped.

“Soccer is a language” she says “and it’s so beautiful to see these young people speak it.”

She hopes to coach the boys’ team at NAIG in Halifax. He is looking for under-18 talent.

“In sports, we don’t get the same opportunities as non-Indigenous kids. We have to leave our homes and communities behind to pursue elite sport. I just want to give back. I want these kids to be born.” Get a chance to play. The sport they love at the national level.”

The athletes are there. The skills are there. The flamboyant young talent is knocking at the door.

Ontario Summer Indigenous Games continue through the weekend. The practice and efforts for NAIG will continue till the coming year. The fight for Ontario’s First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities to give their children an equal playing field continues unabated.

Notice to Bihar Govt in Judge Suspension Case; Action case for speedy judgment

New Delhi : The Supreme Court on Friday approved the hearing of the petition challenging the suspension of the judge by the Patna High Court. The judge concerned gave judgment in several cases in a single day, including a case under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offenses Act (POCSO). The Supreme Court has issued a notice to the Bihar state government in this matter.

On a petition filed by Additional District and Sessions Judge (ADJ) Shashikant Rai of Araria in Bihar, the High Court Justice U. U. Lalit and S. R. Bhat’s bench issued notice. In the petition, Rai claimed that he was convinced that the case against him was taken out of institutional bias as the case under ‘Poxon’ was completed in one day. In another case, he sentenced an accused to death after conducting a hearing in four days.

Justice Lalit recalled a case in 2019 where a person was sentenced to death in nine days. However, the Supreme Court set aside that order and sent the matter to the Sessions Court for fresh hearing. The bench said, “You don’t even give adequate notice to someone who is going to be sentenced to death, which would be a travesty of justice.”

Senior advocate Vikas Singh, who appeared for Rai, also said that Rai was denied promotion. He said that the ‘Poxon’ case related to the rape of a six-year-old girl was completed within a day and the accused was sentenced to life imprisonment. In this case, no appeal was sought from the accused again.

The judge informed that the three-judge bench of the Supreme Court is working on the broader question of what circumstances are being taken into consideration before imposing the death sentence. We are trying to prepare proper procedure in this case. At least you check the jail records, check with the concerned officer, a rational approach is required for such an assessment.

Demand for disqualification of 12 MPs; Shiv Sena's letter to Lok Sabha Speaker against Shinde group

New Delhi : Shiv Sena leaders met Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla on Thursday and demanded that the approval given to the appointment of Shinde faction MP Rahul Shewale as the group leader of Shiv Sena in the Lok Sabha should be revoked and 12 MPs should be disqualified.

Shiv Sena has also filed a new petition in the Supreme Court against the Lok Sabha Speaker’s decision to change the group leader. A delegation led by Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut met the Lok Sabha Speaker in his Parliament Chamber on Thursday and requested Birla through a letter to disqualify 12 MPs from the Shinde group.

Before meeting the Lok Sabha Speaker, Shiv Sena filed a new petition in the Supreme Court challenging the appointment of Rahul Shewale as the group leader. On July 19, 12 MPs from the Shinde faction met Birla and submitted a letter demanding that Rahul Shewale be appointed as the leader of the Shiv Sena group in the Lok Sabha and Bhavana Gawli as the chief deputy instead of Vinayak Raut. Taking immediate notice of this letter, Birla approved the change of group leader on the same day. However, the Shiv Sena has claimed in the petition filed in the court that this approval and the action of the Lok Sabha Speaker is unilateral and illegal.

Birla was requested to listen to the Shiv Sena before taking a final decision on the Shinde group’s request to change the leadership of the group. Moreover, before the Shinde group sent a letter to Birla regarding the change of group leader in the Lok Sabha, a letter was given to Birla on behalf of the Shiv Sena regarding the appointment of Vinayak Raut as the group leader and Rajan Vikhare as the chief deputy. However, Birla unilaterally approved the appointment of Rahul Shewale as the group leader. Shiv Sena’s new petition has argued that Birla did not seek an explanation from the Shiv Sena before approving the decision to change the group leader.

Attention to Monday’s hearing

The Shinde group has applied to the Election Commission and claimed the Shiv Sena’s election symbol ‘Dhanushyaban’. A hearing in this regard will be held before the Central Election Commission on August 8. However, the Shiv Sena has already filed an application requesting the postponement of this hearing in the Supreme Court, and it will be heard on Monday.

Elections currently without OBC reservation; Warning of contempt action if new notification is issued regarding 367 local bodies

New Delhi : Elections to 367 local bodies in the state will be held without OBC reservation. The Supreme Court on Thursday rejected the State Election Commission’s proposal to postpone these elections and announce a new programme. The court reprimanded the State Election Commission, warning that it would be treated as contempt of court if a new notification is issued regarding these local body elections.

The State Election Commission had already announced the schedule for the elections to 271 Gram Panchayats. The elections of 92 Municipalities and 4 Nagar Panchayats were postponed by the Election Commission. However, in the last hearing, the court had directed that the elections in respect of which the notification has been issued, should be held without OBC reservation without postponement.

In a hearing held on Thursday, the court directed the State Election Commission not to make any changes in this regard. Otherwise, action will be taken against the concerned officials, said the judge. Ajay Khanwilkar, Justice. Abbey Oak. And take J. A three-judge bench headed by B Pardiwala explained. The Supreme Court accepted the recommendations of the Banthia Commission submitted by the state government in a hearing held on July 20. Therefore provision of 27 percent reservation for OBCs in local bodies was also accepted. However, the court had ordered not to postpone the local self-government elections for which the notification had been issued. However, the State Election Commission had proposed to postpone the election program to hold elections with OBC reservation.

While the Supreme Court was hearing about OBC reservation, the State Election Commission had announced the schedule for the elections of 92 municipalities. But, the commission had postponed these elections to hold elections with OBC reservation. However, the court has clarified that these elections cannot be postponed as the program of elections has been announced.

A review petition in the Supreme Court soon ; Deputy Chief Minister Fadnavis’s thread

Mumbai: Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said on Thursday that a review petition will be filed in the Supreme Court against the decision to hold elections to 92 municipalities and four nagar panchayats in the state without OBC reservation. Congress and NCP criticized the Shinde-Fadnavis government for going against the Supreme Court verdict.

The Supreme Court has recently decided to implement OBC reservation in about 29 thousand gram panchayats, 34 zilla parishads and more than 300 municipalities in the state. Therefore, it will not be appropriate not to implement OBC reservation in these 92 municipalities where the notification was issued earlier. It is the stand of the state government that the elections to all local bodies should be held with OBC reservation. Therefore, I had a discussion with Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and he has ordered to submit the reconsideration petition, said Fadnavis.

After the Supreme Court directed to implement the OBC reservation, the state government decided to hold the election of mayor by direct voting. Therefore, in these 92 municipalities, there will be OBC reservation for mayors, but not for member elections. A request will be made to the court again to prevent this situation from arising and also to allow OBC reservation for the post of corporators in municipalities. At the same time, the elections of these municipalities have been postponed and the court has given the right to do so. Fadnavis mentioned that the court will be requested not to exclude these municipalities from reservation as the State Election Commission has not issued a fresh notification.

Shocking decision: Bhujbal

The Supreme Court on Thursday decided to hold elections to 367 local bodies in the state without political reservation for OBCs. Former minister and NCP leader Chhagan Bhujbal expressed his reaction that this decision is shocking. Attempts by the state government to advocate for OBC reservation have failed. He demanded that the central and state governments should look seriously at solving the issue of reservations for OBCs, and the chief minister and deputy chief minister should use their strength to conduct the elections of these 367 local bodies with OBC reservation. MLA Chhagan Bhujbal said that if necessary, a reconsideration petition will be filed on behalf of Samata Parishad.

State president of NCP Jayant Patil criticized the Shinde-Fadnavis government in making the winds of Delhi, they have no time to pay attention to the issues of OBCs.

While it seems that the problem of political reservation for OBCs in the state has been resolved, the decision of the Supreme Court to hold the elections of 367 local bodies in the state without OBC reservation is very shocking. Maharashtra Pradesh Congress President Nana Patole demanded that the state government take immediate notice of this decision and file an appeal in the Supreme Court.

Negligence of the Government Caused by: Opponents

OBC reservation will not be applicable in 92 Municipalities, 4 Nagar Panchayats and 271 Gram Panchayats for which the State Election Commission has declared election schedule. Congress and NCP leaders alleged that due to the neglect of the government of Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, the OBC reservation is again in trouble. Reacting that the results were shocking, NCP leader Chhagan Bhujbal said that if necessary, a reconsideration petition will be filed on behalf of the Samata Parishad.

Chowdhury's offensive use of words caused an uproar; Sonia Gandhi-Smriti Irani feud; Lok Sabha adjourned due to commotion by BJP members

New Delhi : Congress group leader in Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chaudhary’s offensive words against the President led to a ruckus in Parliament on Thursday.

Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla adjourned the House after the ruckus of BJP members continued for several minutes.

Then, why is my name being taken’, Sonia asked Ramadevi. BJP members were announcing Sonia’s apology. While talking between Sonia and Rama Devi, Smriti Irani approached Sonia. He tried to tell Sonia that ‘I have taken your name and talk to me’. On that, ‘I am not talking to you. Don’t talk to me’, Sonia replied angrily. So Irani angrily asked Sonia ‘how can you talk to me in such words’. Seeing the verbal argument between Sonia and Smriti Irani, Supriya Sule, Mahua Moitra and other MPs took Sonia aside.

Even though Sonia herself is a woman, she allowed her party leader to make such offensive remarks. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman demanded that Sonia Gandhi come before the nation and apologize for insulting the President.

Apologize to the President – Adhir Ranjan

I will apologize to the President. I have asked them for time for that. But I will not apologize to the hypocritical BJP. I am bengali and can’t speak fluent hindi. I mispronounced the word only once. I did not intend to insult the President. I said it. As soon as I realized I had made a mistake, I sought out media representatives and tried to explain. But by then they had left, said Adhir Ranjan. While criticizing the central government at Vijay Chowk, Adhir Ranjan had referred to her as the “nation’s wife”.

Advance voter registration opportunity for youth above 17 years

New Delhi : The Investment Commission is making efforts to increase the participation of youth in elections. Accordingly, the commission has taken a major decision and youth who have completed 17 years can register in the voter list in advance. But only those who have completed 18 years of age will get the right to vote.

Previously, youths who turned 18 on or before January 1 were eligible to register their names in the electoral roll, while youths who turned 18 on or before January 1 had to wait a year to register as voters. After the change in the election law, youth who have completed 18 years of age on 1st January, 1st April, 1st July and 1st October can register as voters.

According to a letter released by the Election Commission on Thursday, the Commission under the leadership of Chief Election Commissioner Rajeev Kumar and Election Commissioner Anupachandra Pandey has suggested to technically enable the electoral system in the states for the youth to apply as voters in advance.

“Henceforth, the voter list will be updated every three months and the eligible youth will be registered as voters in the next three months of that year,” it has been mentioned in the Election Commission’s letter.

Biden enters the Always Be Closing phase of his first term

“There’s just so much at stake here,” said one adviser to senior party leaders, describing how, overnight, a sense of enormity was added to the immediate calendar.

Over the next few weeks, the president will have to land centerpieces of his domestic agenda aimed at boosting the nation’s global competitiveness and revamping whole swaths of its economy. Major decisions on student loans and expanding abortion rights hang in the balance. There’s also the matter of containing twin outbreaks of monkeypox and the coronavirus, the last of which Biden just spent five days personally fending off.

If that weren’t enough, he’s juggling a slate of foreign affairs challenges as well — headlined by longer-term efforts to reset with Iran on a nuclear deal and negotiate the release of a basketball star and another American jailed in Russia.

It’s a massive political to-do list set against the backdrop of a midterm election likely to cost Democrats full control of Washington. And within a White House that’s often felt under siege, there’s broad recognition that how Biden executes on it will determine the difference between a historic first term and a tragic lost opportunity.

White House officials are approaching the moment with cautious optimism, energized by the fresh jolt of momentum for Biden’s top priorities in Congress, itself underscored by the passage Thursday of a bill designed to boost semiconductor production and better compete with China.

Yet they are also aware that many elements remain well outside their control.

The prospect of an eleventh-hour breakthrough on Democrats’ climate, tax and health care package after more than a year of stumbles has particularly captured the White House’s imagination. In the wake of Wednesday’s deal with holdout Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), one senior aide contended the legislation could turn the tide for Democrats trying to persuade voters to keep them in power, allowing Biden and his party to draw an even sharper contrast with Republicans who they argue aren’t offering an alternative agenda.

“It very much changes how Democrats are going to look at the first half of this first term” if the bill passes, said Tobin Marcus, a former Biden adviser and current senior policy and politics strategist at investment bank Evercore ISI. “Democratic voters are going to feel a lot better about what this has all added up to.”

The deal also left Biden advisers feeling vindicated in their patient approach to the negotiations — a strategy that involved sticking to an administrationwide gag order even as the White House faced mounting criticism and second-guessing from within the party. It was a long-game approach that one senior aide described as a “ton of phone calls.”

Still, there is wariness about engaging in much preemptive celebration, especially for an administration so far defined by the outsize ambitions on which it’s largely failed to deliver. To that end, officials opted not to have Biden himself deliver remarks late Wednesday after Manchin announced the agreement, issuing a statement instead that leaned on caveats indicating the deal could still fall apart.

On Thursday, Biden took pains to point to the broad coalition of early bill supporters, from the former Obama economist Larry Summers to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.). The bill, Biden acknowledged, “is far from perfect.”

“It’s a compromise,” he added. “But that’s how progress gets made: from compromise.”

In a statement, White House spokesperson Chris Meagher called the reconciliation bill a “once-in-a-lifetime chance to fight inflation and lower costs like prescription drugs, energy and health care.”

“And we’re not done — the president is going to continue to focus on growing our economy from the bottom up and middle out, cutting costs for families, making our communities safe, and protecting critical rights,” he said.

The progress Democrats have made so far has come with Biden taking a hands-off approach, deferring to Manchin and Majority Leader Chuck Schumer — though the West Wing was in close consultation with Schumer.

At times, Biden would grouse about the senator’s reluctance to commit to a deal, even as he said he understood that Manchin had to play to West Virginia voters. In certain quarters of the White House, a sense of skepticism took hold whenever Manchin signaled that he was ready to start negotiating again.

Yet there was a persistent belief that at some point Manchin would return to the table — even after the senator signaled two weeks ago he could support only a bare-bones health bill.

With an agreement in hand, the White House is now expected to play a more significant role in convincing a handful of remaining Democrats to take the victory that’s in front of them.

And those who have worked with Biden in the White House and on Capitol Hill say that while he may have steered clear of the weedy negotiations along the way, the former seven-term senator relishes the role of legislative closer.

“Traditionally, it’s certainly something he’s been good at,” said Marcus, pointing to the 2013 fiscal cliff deal Biden cut with Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. “[H]e closed [that] when I think not a lot of other people would have been able to.”

The lingering question for Democrats, though, is whether getting the bill passed is going to be enough. Biden still must tackle a lingering pandemic that will require more funds to combat — itself dependent on the votes of congressional Republicans now steamed about what they perceive as a Manchin-Schumer sleight-of-hand. And while he’s overseen an economy hitting its lowest unemployment rate in decades, the reward has been persistently high inflation and poll numbers approaching historic lows.

Those stiff economic headwinds are unlikely to ease before November, souring voters on the party’s performance overall and drowning out more encouraging signs of progress.

On Thursday, new data showed the economy shrank for a second straight quarter — an additional blow in an environment that many voters say already feels like a recession, even as White House aides spent the past week arguing over whether the country is technically in one.

The administration is also likely to face intensifying pressure in the coming weeks to deliver plans for forgiving student debt, protecting abortion access and containing the monkeypox outbreak — delicate issues that, if mishandled, threaten to fracture Democrats’ coalition and bring a swift end to the party’s current era of good feelings.

Biden officials have latched on to signs that the oil supply crunch that sent gas prices soaring in the spring is finally easing, in hopes that relatively lower costs at the pump may buy them some goodwill. Though Covid continues to surge, deaths have not done the same — prompting aides to cast it as evidence that their strategy of vaccines and treatments is working.

But especially among some longer-serving, more jaded aides who have watched the administration get hit with crisis after crisis, the spate of good news has them bracing for the other shoe to drop. Even after Biden quickly recovered from his own Covid case, a senior official said it would fit with the White House’s bad luck for him to spoil the round of positive press by becoming one of a minority of patients to suffer a second “rebound” illness.

“The president is going to rebound,” the official said, half-joking. “Those things just happen to us.”
