He has been on the record time and again that Iran will build a nuclear weapon within two years-- since, as I said, 1992.

    MSNBC’s Chris Matthews saw a nefarious aim behind Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech before a joint session of Congress on Tuesday, claiming his discussion on the Iranian nuclear talks represented nothing less than a “takeover attempt” by a foreign leader. “Let me get to the heart of this now,” he told host Thomas Roberts. “This man, from a foreign government, walked into the United States legislative chamber and tried to take over U.S. foreign policy.” “Mm-hmm,” Roberts said approvingly. “He said, ‘You should trust me, not your president, on this,’” Matthews continued. “‘I am the man you should trust, I...

    he major American broadcast networks declined to carry live Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to a joint session of Congress boycotted by many leading Democrats Tuesday, and early reaction to the speech in Hollywood seemed to signal a growing disenchantment with the Obama administration foreign policy, particularly the ongoing nuclear negotiations with Iran. Fox News, MSNBC, CNBC and CNN, did broadcast the address, along with CSPAN. The three major networks, along with multiple U.S. online news outlets, including The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal, did live stream the speech on their websites.

    The left realizes that the fearless Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is becoming a serious threat as the right’s potential presidential candidate. So, true to their politics of personal destruction, the leftist media has united in a full-on pre-emptive assault to take Walker down. That included a blatant lie about the governor’s effort to conceal the reporting of campus rapes. Last Friday Jezebel, a politics-and-pop-culture website replete with vicious and foulmouthed radical feminists, posted an attack on Walker written by “senior reporter” Natasha Vargas-Cooper. Vargas-Cooper is no novice to pop culture journalism, though she apparently doesn’t feel bound by any Old...

    The Daily Beast has retracted an article claiming that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker cut all provisions requiring the state’s universities to report sexual assaults. Before finally admitting she “screwed up,” the source of the post tried to defend herself on Twitter. As reported by Politico: The post, published Friday, cited a report from Jezebel that wrongly interpreted a section of the state budget to mean that all assault reporting requirements were to get cut altogether. In fact, the University of Wisconsin system requested the deletion of the requirements to get rid of redundancy, as it already provides similar information to...

And that visit at the invitation of Republicans is threatening to further strain the Obama administration's relations with Israel."

    Say "1964." and those of us old enough might remember the appearance on Ed Sullivan's show of some little British group called the Beatles. But Chris Matthews recalls something else: the decision of the Republican party to nominate Mr. Conservative, Barry Goldwater, and his ensuing wipeout by LBJ. On his MSNBC show tonight, Matthews suggested that Republicans are in a similarly reckless mood, and might well nominate a true conservative, electoral consequences be damned. And, oh yeah, Chris contended that the GOP would do so out of racist motives. View the video here.

    Walker demonizes unions, the poor and voters of color in order to appeal to whites. Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s drive for an anti-labor “right to work” law covering private-sector workers is deeply rooted in the racism of the Deep South’s former slaveholding states. They are yet more evidence that he is following a template known as the Republican Party’s “Southern strategy,” which plays to white voters’ racial resentment, even though his budding presidential campaign is based in snow-encrusted Wisconsin. This emerging strategy is reminiscent of Richard Nixon’s original “Southern strategy” of 1968 and Ronald Reagan’s 1980 campaign kickoff event....

Mikulski, 78, was the first woman to chair the powerful Appropriations Committe, a post she had to give up this year when the Democrats lost control of the Senate. A social worker turned politician, she has been a forceful presence on many pieces of legislation, passionately liberal on certain issues but also committed to working closely with Republicans.

Not surprisingly, the issue breaks along partisan lines, with 66 percent of Democrats saying Republicans shouldn't have invited Netanyahu without first notifying...

"You know, I'm wondering if Prime Minister Netanyahu defeated himself here a little bit," Todd said. "Because the more he attacks the [Obama] administration on the deal, the more the administration wants to dig in." Netanyahu's speech, made via an invitation by Republican House Speaker John Boehner without consulting the White House, is expected to be a criticism of White House negotiations with Iran over Tehran's nuclear development program.

His reluctance to answer for someone he doesn’t know is not a ‘No.’ " Nice try, but the political context of the question was clear and it’s the one Milbank mentioned: the conviction that “Obama is a...

    The Los Angeles Times announced Tuesday that it is partnering with Jose Vargas, an openly illegal immigrant, for a new editorial venture. The project is "a multimedia platform which will explore the evolving American identity in the 21st century," read a release. Vargas is an outspoken activist for immigration reform, particularly reform that would include amnesty for the millions of immigrants living illegally in the U.S. He is also a veteran journalist who came out in 2011 as an unlawful American resident.

    Virginia is still deciding whether to ratify the ERA. The ERA would put in the U.S. Constitution a guarantee that “Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.” The proposed amendment was never added because it was not ratified by the requisite 38 states. Virginia is one of the states that haven’t ratified the amendment. It may be too late to make a constitutional difference, but women’s rights activists continue to push for ratification in the Old Dominion. That is the goal of Senate...

    Rather than voting on a resolution that encouraged support for Israel from the Commonwealth of Virginia, a group of Democrats in the state’s House of Delegates instead chose to leave the chamber for the vote. The resolution presented by Republican Del. Brenda Pogge stated that a “cordial and mutually beneficial relationship” between Virginia and Israel should be encouraged, and also laid out the case for “Israel’s legal, historical, moral, and God-given right of 55 self-governance and self-defense throughout the entirety of its land.” The resolution passed by a wide margin of 70-2, with a large number of Democrat members choosing...

    Monday, February 16, 2015 A Revisionist Muslim History of America Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blogTurkish President Erdogan’s claim that Columbus encountered a mosque in Cuba (the explorer actually saw a rock whose shape he compared to the dome of a mosque) and a Saudi Imam claiming that Columbus had sailed to America to attack Muslims are typical of an emerging genre of Muslim revisionist history that lays claim to America based on an imaginary earlier Muslim presence here. While these examples may be laughable, Muslim historical revisionism has taken root in academia. It can be found...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK) Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's receiving encouragement to run for president from an unlikely source — Rev. Al Sharpton. The MSNBC host and civil rights leader tweeted that during a meeting on the red carpet at the 40th anniversary episode of Saturday Night Live on Sunday, he encouraged Palin on Twitter to make a bid for the White House — but not with the intention of winning. Reverend Al Sharpton ✔ @TheRevAl I saw Sarah Palin on the red carpet and we talked to Xtra together. I urged her to run in 2016 and help the Democrats out. 9:24...

    The Wall Street Journal ^ | Feb. 8, 2015 | Laurence H. Silberman
    In recent weeks, I have heard former Associated Press reporter Ron Fournier on Fox News twice asserting, quite offhandedly, that President George W. Bush “lied us into war in Iraq.” I found this shocking. I took a leave of absence from the bench in 2004-05 to serve as co-chairman of the Commission on the Intelligence Capabilities of the United States Regarding Weapons of Mass Destruction—a bipartisan body, sometimes referred to as the Robb-Silberman Commission. It was directed in 2004 to evaluate the intelligence community’s determination that Saddam Hussein possessed WMD—I am, therefore, keenly aware of both the intelligence provided to...

    The CBS Sunday Morning program yesterday morning ran a glowing segment on Dan Savage. The nationally-syndicated advice columnist on romance and relationships explains to correspondent Erin Moriarty how to talk to your kids about sex, even when - especially when - they don't want to hear it from you. Video of a portion of it is at the link. Savage pontificates about relationships and how to talk to your son about sex and relationships. CBS Sunday Morning completely skipped over the rest of the story. People really should have been given the other side of Dan Savage opinions and actions....

    TEL AVIV — This latest breach in the U.S.-Israeli relationship began around Jan. 12 with a phone call from Netanyahu. Obama asked the Israeli leader to hold fire diplomatically for several more months while U.S. negotiators explored whether Iran might agree to a deal that, through its technical limits on centrifuges and stockpiles, extended the breakout period that Iran would need to build a bomb to more than a year. But Netanyahu is said to have responded that a year wasn’t enough and to have reverted to Israel’s hard-line insistence that Iran shouldn’t be allowed any centrifuges or enrichment. Relations...

    In a lengthy and slobberingly wide ranging interview the faux-intellectuals at Vox.com have succeeded at giving President Obama yet another opportunity to explain why nothing is ever his fault and is usually the fault of people who disagree with or oppose him. Ezra Klein, chief minister of propaganda from Vox was happy to sit down and discuss several popular liberal bugaboos with the President. We'll share just a few snippets of their incredibly close-minded and one-sided interview. On Why Income Inequality has Gotten Worse under ObamaWell, this has been at least a three-decade-long trend. And this was a major topic...

    Inside Higher Education ^ | February 16, 2015 | Paul Fain
    Wisconsin's governor, Scott Walker, hasn’t announced a presidential run. But it’s a safe bet that higher education will come up often if he seeks the Republican nomination, as many presume. That’s because the second-term governor has been cast, or positioned himself, as a primary antagonist of the academy. During the last few weeks Walker has battled with the University of Wisconsin System over budget cuts and an abortive attempt to edit the Wisconsin Idea, the century-old and unusually beloved mission statement of the university. The tumult probably hasn’t reached the intensity it did in 2011, when Walker challenged collective bargaining...

    Fox News' Chris Wallace interviews Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-In) about a lot of topics. From 4:57-8:10, they talk about Boehner's invitation to Prime Minister Netanyahu to address a joint session of Congree next month. Boehner bluntly says that he did not tell the White House he was inviting Netanyahu (contrary to earlier reports), because he did not want President Obama interfering with Prime Minister Netanyahu coming to Washington. Let's go to the videotape.
