“Secretary of State John Kerry told the House Committee on Foreign Affairs on Thursday afternoon that it is a ‘mistake‘ for people to raise the issue of whether Palestinians would agree to recognize Israel as a Jewish state. The Israeli government has insisted that Palestinians do so as part of an agreement, while Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and the nations of the Arab League have all rejected Israel’s demand.” – Breitbart

“Voters in November might be ready to show Democrats what they think about removing choice and hiking costs, as well as their arrogance in determining that a few politicians in Washington know better about their choices than they do. Unfortunately, Barack Obama doesn’t appear to have figured out this problem. In an interview with WebMD, Obama finally acknowledged that, contra his promise, people might not be able to keep the doctors they liked, but that they probably shouldn’t have liked those doctors in the first place.” – Hot Air

Military radar data suggests a Malaysia Airlines jetliner missing for nearly a week was deliberately flown hundreds of miles off course, heightening suspicions of foul play among investigators, sources told Reuters on Friday.” – Reuters

Ever notice the Democrats never have any problem finding Republicans who will sellout to help them? Even when the Democrats have 59 votes and the GOP is down to a rump caucus they can find a few turncoats. Hell, even when the GOP has a majority the Democrats can find allies across the aisle that will stymie the Republican message.” – Ace Of Spades

“With a referendum on secession looming in Crimea, Russia massed troops and armored vehicles in at least three regions along Ukraine’s eastern border on Thursday, alarming the interim Ukraine government about a possible invasion and significantly escalating tensions in the crisis between the Kremlin and the West.” – NY Times

“In a speech about getting aid money to Ukraine, Ted Cruz hit back at Harry Reid on the Senate floor a few moments ago for Reid’s attack on the Koch brothers today, noting the Koch brothers don’t have the privilege to come to the Senate and defend themselves. So Cruz defended them, telling Reid it’s not his place to attack private citizens. He also noted the hypocrisy of Reid, attacking the Koch brothers while not mentioning the billionaire who has pledged to give money to Democrats to get Climate Change laws passed.” – The Right Scoop

“However, Sen. Landrieu has received $27,000 in campaign contributions since 2000 from Koch Industries and its subsidiaries and employees, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.” – Washington Free Beacon

Harry Reid’s unhinged rants on the Senate floor about David and Charles Koch reflect not just one man’s paranoia but an empty strategy of demagoguery by a major political party. A new ad from the party’s Senate Majority PAC attempting to protect Mary Landrieu from the consequences of her support for Barack Obama’s agenda tried to shift attention in Louisiana to “out-of-state billionaires,” by which they did not mean George Soros or Tom Steyer. The ad claims that the Kochs support “tax cuts for companies that ship our jobs overseas,” but as the Washington Post’s Glenn Kessler deduces, practically nothing in that argument is true … including the that and the for.” – Hot Air

“Oh. So, Ted Cruz pointed out that one of the tactics of baby-killing fans is to chant ‘Hail Satan.’ Which is something that has happened. Somehow, when run through the filter at the Associated Press, this is transformed into ‘That teabagger-favorite Cruz called the good guys Satan worshippers!’ Well, no he didn’t. He didn’t assign a motive to it. He just presented the fact of it.” – Daily Caller

The House voted Friday to delay the individual mandate to buy health insurance under ObamaCare for five years, an idea that found support from 12 Democrats after frantic leadership efforts to keep its members in the ‘no’ column.” – The Hill
