In other news, Senator Minority Leader Harry Reid announced that he will not seek reelection. Reid has endorsed Chuck Schumer (D-NY) to succeed him as minority leader.

Meanwhile, a group of House Republicans are once again calling on leadership to defund the president's executive orders on immigration even though his orders can't really be defunded.

Cartoon news item:

The world is starving for American leadership, but America has an anti-war president. We have no strategy, overarching strategy, to deal with a growing terrorist threat, and it’s not just ISIS or al-Qaida and all of their affiliates,” the Ohio Republican said at his weekly news briefing. -John Boehner decries our "anti-war president"

I don't think anyone is starving for more American wars. No one other than Republicans, that is.
