Netanyanu: ‘A Very Bad Deal’

This is what we know he’d say, what we know he thinks. He didn’t have to go to Congress to say it. “This is a bad deal — a very bad deal. We’re better off without it,” Netanyahu says. There you have it — the money quote. The Israeli leader says “the alternative to this […]

Boehner Coup?

How he handles the next seven days will determine how secure John Boehner is as House speaker. Frustration with the Ohio Republican is mounting after dozens of hardliners voted Friday against his three-week funding package for the Department of Homeland Security. Hours of frantic leadership meeting ensued. After some backroom maneuvering with Democrats, Boehner was […]

I think it means he hates the press. Or he just likes to pucker up. Now that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has said he will present the House with a clean CR bill to keep the Department of Homeland Security open without the added measure that would block President Barack Obama executive action […]

By accepting a Republican invitation to address the US Congress next week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has not only upset the White House and the Democrats, he’s also rattled America’s largely liberal Jewish community. “Like an increasing number of American Jews, I want to make it clear that Netanyahu does not speak for me,” […]

A CNN/ORC poll shows Americans would blame the GOP for shutdown at the Department of Homeland Security. The survey finds 53% of Americans would blame the Republicans in Congress if the department must shut down, while 30% would blame President Barack Obama. Another 13% say both deserve the blame.

That’s what you get for trying to undermine one of the parties negotiating for your own benefit. A Israeli report claims the US administration has stopped updating Israel about developments in nuclear negotiations between world power and Iran, allegedly in response to Prime Minister Netanyahu’s decision to accept an invitation by Republicans to address Congress […]

House Speaker John Boehner said he didn’t want the White House to mess up the invitation for the Israeli prime minister to come to the United States because of its “animosity” toward him. “I wanted to make sure there was no interference,” Boehner said. “There’s no secret here in Washington about the animosity that this […]

What’s amazing here is how transparent John Boehner is about allowing the country to become vulnerable because of refusal to fund the Department of Homeland Security and blame it on Senate Democrats. And all because he and other Republicans want to hold the country’s security hostage to immigration. Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace repeatedly […]

According to the official, John Boehner led Benjamin Netanyahu to believe that his invitation to address Congress was fully supported by Democrats. “It appears that the speaker of Congress made a move, in which we trusted, but which it ultimately became clear was a one sided move and not a move by both sides,” Deputy […]
