Netanyahu: Israel Understands America's Grief


Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu extended Israel's condolences to the families of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other officials at the American embassy in Libya who were murdered Tuesday night by Islamic terrorists.

"The people of Israel grieve with the American people. We send our condolences to the families," Netanyahu said in a statement posted on the Prime Minister's Office website.

"If there's any people in the world that understands what Americans are going through, what they went through on 9/11, it's the people of Israel, who've been standing at the forefront of the battle against terrorism, who've lost loved ones and who deeply sympathize with the people of America at this time," the statement concluded...

Last week, a new report showed job growth is “well below what is needed” and the White House blew off a deadline to report on the impact of the Obama defense ‘sequester.’  But instead of working with Republicans to address these challenges and others, the president made it clear toCBS News he’s still focused on a small business tax hike that would destroy 700,000 jobs.

Senate GOP Leader McConnell: President Should Lead and Stop Blaming Others for his Policy Failures

U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell made the following remarks on the Senate floor on Thursday regarding the President’s refusal to lead while blaming others for his policy failures:

“Anyone who happened to be watching the Senate floor a little earlier today got a taste of why, in the midst of a national jobs crisis, Americans are still in danger of being slammed by one of the biggest tax hikes in history, why the U.S. military is today at risk of cuts that would devastate national security, and why there’s now a very good chance another major ratings agency will downgrade our nation’s credit.

“There’s a reason all these things may actually happen, and it has nothing to do with Republicans"... (READ MORE)

Hobby Lobby Sues Over Birth Control Mandate

The Christian-owned business Hobby Lobby Stores Inc. filed a federal lawsuit Wednesday challenging the president's health care mandate that requires employers to provide contraception like the "morning after" pill in their health insurance plan.

The lawsuit claims the government is forcing the company's owners "to violate their deeply held religious beliefs under threat of heavy fines, penalties, and lawsuits by providing a pill that when taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex, can terminate a pregnancy by as much as 89 percent"...
