    Then again, how could they not. Otherwise the only senator they could fundraise for would be Tom Cotton. AIPAC backed the Corker bill. So did most Republicans. Everything else was political theater. AIPAC played its part to get publicity, and then it's back to business as usual, fundraising for people who voted to let Iran go nuclear. Steve Rosen, a former foreign policy director for Aipac, told me his former organization will be inclined to work with Democrats rather than turn them into enemies. "There is no question Aipac lay leaders will in the future be holding fundraisers for Democrats...

    Israel’s ambassador to the US, Ron Dermer received Saturday the full backing of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, amid chatter in Washington that replacing Dermer may be necessary to restore the working relationship with the Obama administration. In a statement by the Prime Minister’s Office, Netanyahu reiterated what he had said at the AIPAC conference earlier this month that he “couldn’t be prouder to have Ron Dermer representing Israel in Washington.” “That is as true today as it was then,” the statement read. “The prime minister has full confidence in Ambassador Dermer, whose service to the people and State of Israel...

    Two days ago, in response to a question from D. A.

    It is unbelievable that Mitt Romney did not answer a direct question teed up for him by the moderator Bob Schieffer - regarding the question of whether Obama mislead the American people over the unmitigated debacle and possible treason that was Benghazi. He gave Romney an open end question, inviting him to address the Libya debacle. Romney chose to ignore the question and instead recite a monologue that sounded like a canned political speech. Romney then allowed Obama to interrupt him and take over the question that was actually posed to himself - not Obama. It became evident six minutes...

But the move has angered some religious groups, while one lawyer described it as "absurd and totally illegal".

Clear Channel Communications, 11-01968. The panel concluded that Rochester-area talk show host Robert Lonsberry's statements were "nonactionable expressions of pure opinion." The dispute involved a conversation that Lonsberry had on air with a woman whose brother was found not guilty of a...

    Raleigh, N.C. — Republican Renee Ellmers has unseated veteran Congressman Bob Etheridge, according to unofficial results of a recount in the tight race. Etheridge, a seven-term Democrat, picked up six votes on Ellmers after voting results from 10 counties were tabulated a second time, but it was nowhere near enough to overcome her 1,489-vote lead following the Nov. 2 election. The State Board of Elections still must audit the results and will meet next Tuesday to certify the results of all elections statewide. 2010 North Carolina General Election Results Etheridge requested a recount after Ellmers led him by less than...

    President Barack Obama's first budget includes $15 billion a year for renewable energy programs and an ambitious plan to raise $646 billion from a carbon reduction proposal. "Because our future depends on our ability to break free from oil that's controlled by foreign dictators, we need to make clean, renewable energy the profitable kind of energy," Mr. Obama said Thursday morning.
