Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has launched a major two-pronged lobbying campaign in Washington to block a big power nuclear agreement with Iran. Track one is killing the deal it outright, and track two is enact legislation giving Congress the power to stop it.
Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-New York) just announced he is sponsoring the bill introduced by Republican Sen. Bob Corker (Tennessee), which will force the administration to submit the agreement to Congress for approval.

Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky is the latest Republican to declare he hates Washington so much that he is prepared to spent billions of dollars – of other people's money, naturally – to win a four-year lease on government housing and become the personification of Washington and government.

A reputation for homophobia that has dogged Republicans for many years got worse this week when Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R) signed a new law protecting discrimination against lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transsexuals (LGBT).
His state's "Restoring Religious Freedom Act" gives businesses the right to refuse service to LGBT individuals based on religious grounds.

Before leaving for Washington to speak to the U.S. Congress at the invitation of the Republican leadership three weeks ago, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he would reveal information about the bad deal the Obama administration was negotiating with Iran but not telling the Congress.
When there was nothing new in his formal address, just a rehash of what he’d been saying for months, it was assumed that his pre-speech hype was just that, hype.

Republicans are salivating over the thought of a huge influx of Jewish voters in the wake of new friction between the Obama administration and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the wake of this week’s Israeli election.
The outcome of the election was deeply disappointing to most American Jews and most Democrats (most Jews are Democrats by a wide margin). Not just because Netanyahu won but because of how he won, with racist campaign tactics and flip-flops on the two state solution.
