By Sarah Ferris and Jordan Fabian (The Hill)…President Obama signaled Wednesday he’s prepared to sign a bipartisan deal on Medicare that is emerging in Congress. “I’ve got my pen ready to sign a good bipartisan bill,” the president said during a speech at the White House. “I love when Congress passes bipartisan bills that I can sign. It’s very encouraging,” he joked to applause. The emerging “doc fix” deal would repeal a Medicare rule known as the sustainable growth rate, which triggers automatic cuts in payments to doctors. The package would also extend for two years federal funding under ObamaCare for community health…

EU gears up for propaganda war with Russia

(Reuters) – The European Union is set to launch a first operation in a new propaganda war with Russia within days of EU leaders giving formal approval to the campaign at a summit on Thursday. Officials told Reuters that a dozen public relations and communications experts would start work by the end of March in Brussels with a brief to counter what the EU says is deliberate misinformation coordinated by the Kremlin over Moscow’s role and aims in Ukraine and elsewhere in Europe.

A Justice Department statement said a plea agreement had been filed. The deal means that Mr Petraeus will plead guilty to one count of unauthorized removal and retention of classified material, but could avoid an embarrassing trial….

Judd Gregg: McConnell aims to restore the Senate

Getty Images

By Judd Gregg – Of all the atrocities that have been committed on the body politic over the last six years — and there have been many, arising from both sides of the aisle — the dismantling of the purpose and the role of the United States Senate is the most significant for the long-term health of our constitutional system. When our founders gathered in Philadelphia in 1787, one of the things they most wanted to correct was the tyranny of the King and of the English parliament. They wanted to be confident that, in this new government they were creating from…

France: Quels pays les voyageurs français doivent-ils éviter?

Une Française a été enlevée mardi 24 février au Yémen. Isabelle Prime, 30 ans, travaillait comme consultante pour une société spécialisée dans la protection sociale et était responsable d’un projet pour le Fonds social yéménite, une institution gouvernementale. Le Yémen, à la situation politique chaotique et aux conditions de sécurité très précaires, est sur la « liste rouge » du ministère des affaires étrangères français, qui « déconseille formellement » à ses ressortissants de s’y rendre. L’ambassade de France à Sanaa avait été fermée le 11 février, « provisoirement et jusqu’à nouvel ordre », après le coup d’Etat des rebelles houthistes. Au 25 février, la liste des « conseils aux voyageurs » du Quai d’Orsay comptait 25 pays entièrement « formellement déconseillés » (Yémen, Syrie, Irak,…

Israël: le train de vie des Nétanyahou au coeur de la campagne

DAN BALILTY, ARCHIVES AP

LAURENT LOZANO Agence France-Presse JÉRUSALEM Les Israéliens élisent leur Parlement dans moins d’un mois, mais le train de vie du premier ministre et la conduite de sa femme ont jusqu’ici relégué, au second plan dans la campagne, les défis sociaux et les menaces sécuritaires auxquels le prochain gouvernement fera face. Pas de grands rassemblements ni de débats de fond : entre les vidéos caricaturales sur les réseaux sociaux, les slogans simplistes et les brocards personnels, rarement une campagne est tombée aussi bas, disent les politologues. Les enjeux sont considérables. Israël sort d’une guerre au sud. Les tensions en font redouter une…
