President Obama and First Lady Michelle Travel to India

A float rolls down Rajpath during a rehearsal for Republic Day celebrations in New Delhi.President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama are going to India this weekend to attend Tuesday’s Republic Day parade in New Delhi — the first time an American president will be a guest at the event, which celebrates India’s democracy and its constitution.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi invited Obama to be a guest at the annual parade, which will take place Jan. 26.

“This is an enormously important event for the Indian people,” said Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes. The invitation “sends a very important message to the world, as well as to the American and Indian people about our commitment to embrace the potential of this relationship.”

Modi, who was elected in May 2014, visited the White House in September.

A number of business leaders and members of Congress will join Obama on the trip, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) Obama, Modi and Indian President Pranab Mukherjee will address Indian and American chief executives after the parade.

To Undermine President Obama, John Boehner Is Going to Allow Benjamin Netanyahu to Address Congress

Think about that. The President of the United States is supposed to take the lead in foreign policy. Because this President refuses to go to war with Iran, and is, in fact, taking steps to bring Iran to the table and negotiate with them after 30+ years, the war hawks in the Congress want to undermine that. They are mad that this President is choosing NOT to bring this country into another war and feed the Military Industrial Complex. How obvious was this that this speech was all about undermining the President?

MOSSAD

MOSSAD has taken the extraordinary step to speak out against it.

Israeli intelligence officials have been briefing both Obama administration officials and visiting U.S. senators about their concerns on the Kirk-Menendez bill, which would increase sanctions on Iran only if the Iranian government can’t strike a deal with the so-called P5+1 countries by a June 30 deadline or fails to live up to its commitments. Meanwhile, the Israeli prime minister’s office has been supporting the Kirk-Menendez bill, as does the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, ahead of what will be a major foreign policy confrontation between the executive and legislative branches of the U.S. government in coming weeks.

Here’s a clip from Lawrence O’Donnell’s show explaining just how foul and TRAITOROUS what Speaker Boehner has done in extending the invitation to Netanyahu.
