Diplomatic "Spat": White House on Netanyahu Comments

The White House is still attempting to be diplomatic in response to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's planned speech to the U.S. Congress about Iran in March on invitation from House Speaker John Boehner. On Sunday, White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough responded to an article in Haaretz, an Israeli newspaper, from Friday that quoted a senior U.S. official as saying "[Netanyahu] spat in our face publicly" and "that there will be a price" for it. McDonough denied on NBC's "Meet the Press" that the anonymous source was him or President Obama saying, "I can guarantee that it's not me, not the president, and not what we believe." Read »

Northeast Braces for "Crippling" Snowstorm

A huge swath of the Northeast, from Philadelphia all the way to northern New England, is bracing for a snowstorm that meteorologists say is expected to bring "historic" snow accumulations well into Tuesday night. The New York City area was placed under a 35-hour blizzard warning beginning Monday afternoon, with as much as 3 feet of snow expected to create "paralyzing, crippling" conditions, forecasters said Sunday. More than 3,100 flights scheduled for Monday and Tuesday were canceled in advance after the National Weather Service warned of blizzard conditions, damaging wind gusts and possible coastal flooding. "This is going to be a big one, historic," Weather Channel coordinating meteorologist Tom Moore said. Massachusetts was also bracing for winds that could reach 70 mph in coastal areas, which, paired with the snow, will create whiteout conditions. Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, D.C., were already set for a messy Monday morning commute with up to 6 inches of snow expected overnight Sunday. Read »

Wild Start to GOP Primary Season at "Freedom Summit"

Iowa congressman Steve King has declared that the 2016 Republican primary will be the "greatest show in America," and with at least 15 people vying to be the Republican presidential candidate, he might be right. There's still a year left before anyone will vote, but the GOP contest has already turned into an intriguing mix of ambition, ego and ideology. Some of the biggest names in conservatism gave speeches at the nine-hour "Iowa Freedom Summit" on Saturday, including likely presidential candidates Texas Gov. Rick Perry, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. They blasted President Obama's executive action on immigration and said they'd work to repeal Obamacare. Read »
