Blue State Blues: Exclusive–Netanyahu’s Upcoming Speech to Congress (Full Text)

"I am not here to make the case for war. I am not even here to make the case for new sanctions. You know it well enough. On both sides of the aisle, you have leaders who can speak more powerfully than I about why more pressure is needed, after a year of fruitless talks. No—I am here to ask merely that America be what America is: the leader of the free world."

Obama’s Lying to You About Free College, Kids

President Barack Obama took his State of the Union on the road yesterday, telling college students in Boise, ID that he will make two years of college "free" and "universal." What he did not tell them, however, is that he wants to tax 529 savings plans to pay for those two free years of community college--which are already free anyway for poor students, under federal grants.

Report: Obama Leaked Mossad Report to Embarrass Netanyahu

Israel's Army Radio, via the Jerusalem Post, reports that local sources claim U.S. President Barack Obama arranged the leak of a Mossad report on the Iran nuclear talks as an act of revenge against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for agreeing to speak to Congress in February about radical Islam and the Iranian threat. The Mossad report allegedly suggests new sanctions would cause talks to collapse, and its release is calculated to suggest disagreement with Netanyahu.

With Bibi Invite, Boehner Counters Obama in Israeli Election

Speaker of the House John Boehner announced Wednesday morning that he would invite Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address a joint meeting of Congress on Feb. 11. "In this time of challenge, I am asking the Prime Minister to address Congress on the grave threats radical Islam and Iran pose to our security and way of life," Boehner said in a press statement. The timing suits Netanyahu perfectly, as it comes five weeks before Israelis will go to the polls on March 17.

SOTU: Obama Vows to Veto Iran Sanctions–Again

In his State of the Union address, President Barack Obama repeated his threat from last year's address to veto any new Iran sanctions passed by Congress. He also claimed that Iran's nuclear program had been stalled, and pledged to reach a deal by the end of the year. The language was almost the same as he used in 2014, though he failed to stop Iran's nuclear program or to reach a deal over the past year, and in fact extended talks twice past the original deadline agreed one year ago today.

SOTU: No Mention of Yemen as U.S.-Backed Government Falls

In his State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress Tuesday evening, President Barack Obama touted his foreign policy successes--but failed to mention Yemen, where Shia militias overthrew the government earlier in the day, and where Americans anxiously anticipated evacuation from the embassy and the country.
