As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

The Obama Morning News || March 2, 2015

White House, Netanyahu to make dueling cases . . . President Obama and two of his top national security officials will make their case publicly on Monday for a diplomatic agreement with Iran to prevent that nation from acquiring a nuclear weapon, one day before Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel is to address Congress to denounce such a deal. The president has scheduled an interview with Reuters for Monday afternoon, the same day that Susan E. Rice, his national security adviser, and Samantha Power, his ambassador to the United Nations, will address the American Israel Public Affairs Committee at its policy conference here. New York Times

WashPost: Obama spreads lies about Keystone . . . President Obama, seeking to explain his veto of a bill that would have leapfrogged the approval process for the Keystone XL pipeline, in an interview with a North Dakota station repeated some false claims that had previously earned him “Pinocchios.” Yet he managed to make his statement even more misleading than before, suggesting the pipeline would have no benefit for American producers at all. Washington Post

Court case could massively disrupt Obamacare . . . On Wednesday, the high court will hear arguments in King v. Burwell, a case that will determine whether the health law’s premium subsidies are legal in 34 states that did not set up their own insurance exchanges and rely on the Obamacare website to enroll their residents. If the court decides they’re not, an estimated 7 million to 8 million people would be cut off. The cost of insurance would rise sharply and millions could end up uninsured. It would unravel much of the president’s signature domestic achievement. HHS Sylvia Mathews Burwell insists she has no administrative fix at her fingertips and denies that her agency has contingency plans — an assertion that many Republicans just don’t buy. Politico

The White House strategy may be to emphasize the “misery” and use it to “force” Obama to take some kind of executive action.

Obama-doesn’t-love America kid locked out of Facebook . . . CJ Pearson, a politically active 12-year-old from Augusta, Georgia, says he has been locked out of his Facebook account after posting a video saying President Barack Obama doesn’t love America. Newsmax

Cuban spy freed by Obama ready to return to duty . . . His sentence commuted by Obama, Gerardo Hernandez is now a free man in his native Cuba, reunited with his wife, Adriana, and his former spy comrades. Last Tuesday the Cuban Five, they are called here, were officially decorated by President Raúl Castro as national heroes in a grand celebration at Cuba’s National Assembly. And, Hernandez says he’s ready to return for duty to advance the cause of his country’s communist revolution. Yahoo News

Kerry stands by opinion that Americans “safer than ever” . . . Secretary of State John F. Kerry on Sunday stood firm on his assessment that Americans are “safer than ever,” despite a spike in deaths from terrorism across the world. Washington Times

Kerry: Israel safer too! . . . Kerry said negotiators deserve “the benefit of the doubt” in attempts to secure a nuclear agreement with Iran, after the White House threatened to veto a bill providing for Congress to approve of any final deal. Kerry repeated the administration’s position that Iran has lived up to an interim agreement reached in late 2013, known as the Joint Plan of Action (JPOA), and said that as a result of that agreement, “Israel is safer today.” CNS News

  1. The kid that was locked out of Facebook is an indication of what we can look forward to under Net Neutrality regulations.

    And Keith,….please stop with the googleads and the doubleclick messages.

    PLEASE !!!

  2. John Kerry is a liar and a fool.
    What president that loved this Country would have ever chosen him for SOS ?
    Or Hillary for that matter ?

    Obama’s transformation of this Country has got to come to a stop.

    He and his administration are the internal enemy that needs to be dealt with.

    When he was first given the office, I hoped that he would paint himself into a corner that he could never get out of.

    It now appears that he has widened the room to the extent that he can paint to his hearts content and continually increase the corner to the size he determines necessary in order to accomplish his goals.

    • I wondered that myself. I have been on the sight. I wonder if anyone is keeping a tally of how many people have been knocked off the sight?

    • It may not be what it is being made to be, at least from FB perspective. If he is gaining attention and it is brought to light that he is only 12, FB rules say one must be 13 to have an account.

      Not that I wouldn’t put it past any of them to shut it down for negativity toward a certain narcissist.

        • Many kids under the age of 13 have accounts. But most of these kids fly under the radar because they aren’t bringing attention to themselves. All they have to do is put in a false date of birth. They can maintain their account without any barriers.

          This kid brought public attention to himself and it became publicly known that he was 12. I think it had more to do with that then attempting to censor.

  3. Netanyahu said today his speech isn’t being done to hurt Obama and administration BUT OBAMA IS DEFINITELY TRYING TO HURT NETANYAHU and I hope tomorrow Netanyahu will have the courage to tell Congress and the world that about Obama,and that having a deal with Iran can never be as Iran will obliterate Israel as they said they would thousands of times.
