Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has asked to speak to Congress in March.
While this normally wouldn’t seem out of the ordinary by normal political means, Netanyahu coordinated the visit with House Speaker John Boehner rather than the Obama administration in an effort to win support for sanctions against Iran – an atypical move.
Ring of Fire’s Mike Papantonio and Sam Seder discuss whether Netanyahu wants a war with Iran.

Italian councilors are posing roadside as prostitutes in an effort to entrap unsuspecting men in Castel Volturno, Italy. The stunt was orchestrated by Mayor Dimitri Russo who felt that the city’s prostitution laws weren’t being taken seriously enough and was tired of the damaging effect prostitution was having on his town. The mayor would approach the cars to talk to the unsuspecting “Johns.”

A week ago, three presidential candidates talked to a roomful of wealthy donors at the Koch Brothers’ American Recovery Policy Forum in Palm Springs, California. The discussion underscored disagreement within the GOP over global affairs and national security.
Republican Sens. Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and Rand Paul took part in a largely friendly, but occasionally fiery, panel at the event sponsored by Charles and David Koch.
The event was moderated by ABC’s Jonathan Karl, and marked the first time potential GOP contenders gathered on the same stage at the same time to talk about policy in 2015, a year that’s expected to see several candidates compete for the Republican nomination.

It happens in Ireland, too?
This week, an Irish school canceled an anti-homophobic bullying workshop because people who think homophobic bullying is OK weren’t invited to enlighten children with their side of this hotly contested issue.
Shout Out, a group that provided training to fight homophobic bullying, claims their workshop leader was told the school had decided that “both sides of the argument should be given,” and so the workshop wasn’t allowed to go ahead.
The school’s board of management then issued a statement saying that parents sent letters “outlining their concerns regarding the workshop.”
The school in question, Colaiste Eoin in Dublin, is seen as actively promoting a “closeted” homophobic agenda while denying vulnerable students access to vital services.
In its public statement, Colaiste Eoin management references its Catholic School status as a reason for the workshop cancellation. This excuse is unsurprising. In Ireland Catholic schools are the norm, with the church running 3,000 out of the 3,200 primary schools and a decent chunk of the country’s secondary schools.
In the video below, neocon foreign policy in regards to Russia is explored with retired Reagan Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, Paul Craig Roberts.
According to Wikipedia, Paul Craig Roberts (born April 3, 1939) is an American economist and a columnist for Creators Syndicate. He served as an Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan Administration and was noted as a co-founder of Reaganomics. He is a former editor and columnist for the Wall Street Journal, Business Week, and Scripps Howard News Service. He has testified before congressional committees on 30 occasions on issues of economic policy.
“Roberts has written extensively on the effects of the neo-liberal economic policies pursued since the 1990s and about jobs-offshoring which he has strongly criticized. He has argued that these policies, favoring the financial services ‘industry’ at the expense of other sectors of the economy, has eroded America’s industrial capacity, its workers’ skills and has sharply decreased upward social mobility. He has stated that these policies which condemned American workers to low-paying unskilled jobs, as the only jobs available, caused them to increase their net personal debt to maintain living standards, significantly contributed to the 2008 Global Financial Crisis.”
In the video, the emboldening of the far right by George W. Bush and Dick Cheney and the move towards reckless endangerment of global peace is discussed, as is Russian policy. The Reagan administration figure talks about how the political landscape has changed for the worse in this uncensored political discussion on Buzzsaw, hosted by Sean Stone.
