The Lead: More Banks Fallout

President Biden spoke on Monday about the two major U.S. bank failures saying that Americans can be assured that their money is safe. 

Signature Bank and Silicon Valley Bank both received emergency lending to guarantee all depositors could retrieve their funds. The U.K. government stepped in to help, arranging for HSBC to purchase the British arm of SVB for a symbolic £1. 

The fallout from this was tumultuous, with U.S. stocks taking a dive on Monday. This may continue today when the February inflation numbers are announced

Some lawmakers called this market failure a “Twitter-fueled bank run” and discussed social media censorship to curb it. Journalist Michael Shellenberger reported that Arizona Senator Mark Kelly called for social media censorship to prevent a run on the banks. Representative Lauren Boebert said that Biden Under Secretary of the Treasury Nellie Liang asked about reaching out to Twitter and Facebook to “monitor misinformation and ‘bad actors.’” 

Imagine the powers that could be flexed to prevent you from knowing about a financial crisis and acting in your own self-interest to withdraw YOUR own money. That should not sit well with anyone. 

The U.S. Killed Civilians in Somalia

Several media outlets are reporting that a U.S. airstrike in Somalia killed at least seven people in January. 

The reports come from a monitoring group called Airwars and three media outlets: s: Shabelle Media NetworkSomali Guardian, and Caasimada Online News. Airwars graded the report as “fair," meaning that at least two credible sources have reported it. 

In 2021, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin said that the U.S. needs to be more transparent when reporting on civilian casualties and work harder to avoid them. But no one has claimed responsibility for this attack. According to Antiwar, “US Africa Command did not report an airstrike on January 30, but it’s not clear if the command is reporting each strike it launches. It’s also possible that the CIA has been conducting drone strikes in Somalia. According to Airwars, the US military has declared seven actions in Somalia so far this year, but the monitoring group has recorded nine more alleged US airstrikes.”

The reported victims of this airstrike were between the ages of 8 and 20 and three of them were brothers, according to Caasimada Online News.

White House Asks "What is Race?"

The White House will decide on new classifications of race and ethnicity next year and will begin hosting virtual town halls to get feedback from citizens this week. 

Some proposed changes include dropping the terms “minority” and “majority.” It would also add categories for people from the Middle East and North Africa called MENA. People from those regions were counted as white. 

The new classifications would also combine race and ethnicity because separating them confused people. It would also remove the words “Negro” and “Far East.” 

Some Black Americans want a distinction between Black immigrants and Black people who are descendants of slaves. They are proposing categories called American Freedmen, Foundational Black Americans or American Descendants of Slavery. Some Jewish Americans propose adding Jewish as an ethnic category and not just a religion.

China Pushing For Peace in Ukraine?

Could China be on a winning streak for peace? The Wall Street Journal reports that Chinese President Xi Jinping is set to meet with Ukrainian President Zelensky next week after a meeting with Russian President Putin. Could he do what no one else has been able to do and broker an actual peace deal? 

This follows a major peace deal last Friday between Iran and Saudi Arabia. The deal was cemented in China by Chinese officials. On the heels of that deal, China announced that it would host a meeting with Iran and the six members of the Gulf Cooperation Council later this year. 

The WSJ reports that President Jinping may visit other European countries after he leaves Moscow, reflecting “a conviction on the part of Mr. Xi and the Communist Party that China can offer an alternative to the U.S.-led model of international relations by relying on commercial ties rather than military might to sway the decisions of other countries.”
