Chris Matthews of MSNBC doubles down on neoconservative ‘pigs’ who push Republicans to ‘go from war to war’. It seems that he’s snapped over the media blackout over the Israel lobby

Neoconservatives pushed the Iraq war to help Israel, David Corn explains on MSNBC when Chris Matthews asks why we invaded Iraq. At last the country is confronting the neoconservative plans to make over the Middle East.
George W. Bush usually paints portraits of dogs and heads of state. But he did an architectural landscape, a painting of Sheldon Adelson’s casino in Singapore, to cultivate billionaire Sheldon Adelson, whose backing his brother Jeb wants for his run for the presidency.
Neoconservative financier Paul Singer was Marco Rubio’s second largest backer in 2009-2014, so it’s no wonder Jeb Bush is pandering to Singer on Israel, he needs to compete with Rubio
Chris Matthews says that Jeb Bush was pandering to Jewish donors in the Israel lobby when he embraced his brother. But guests Jonathan Capehart and David Corn say it was just a screwup. Really?
Norman Braman, the FL businessman who is backing Marco Rubio, is Israel-centric: If the U.S. falls economically that’s a “danger to the state of Israel,” the UN is a “disgrace” with one purpose, to discredit Israel, and anti-Semites around the world are trying to end the country’s existence. But the New York Times won’t tell you any of this.
WI Gov Scott Walker wears jeans touring occupied territory in Golan Heights on overseas trip to Israel designed to overcome his shortcomings, lack of foreign-policy experience
The Iraq war is a glorious event for neoconservatives, which is why Jeb Bush has embraced his brother George after distancing himself for months. He needs money from Paul Singer and other members of the Israel lobby.
Carly Fiorina promises to make Israel her first phone call as president. Mike Huckabee is “just nuts” about Israel. Jeb Bush calls settlements “apartments.” Ben Carson wants to transfer the Palestinians to Egypt. Marco Rubio has taken to dining with top-donor Sheldon Adelson. Ted Cruz is making the rounds with Fire Island’s pro-Israel community. And, Lindsey Graham who has not announced his bid, said if he is president he will have the first “all-Jewish” cabinet. As it shapes up, the Republican field in the 2016 U.S. presidential race is looking to be one of the most fiercely pro-Israel in memory.
Elizabeth Warren attended an AIPAC event Monday at which Sen. Lindsey Graham said that everything in the Middle East that begins with “Al” is bad news. Will the progressive senator condemn these comments?
The great spiritual challenge to Jews is to deal with our actual status in western societies. What would the American Jewish community look like today if we moved beyond viewing ourselves as the eternal victim? And what would happen to the Israel lobby? A response to David Bernstein’s charge in the Washington Post that Phil Weiss is an anti-Semite
Jimmy Carter’s statement that Gaza situation is “intolerable” is lead of Guardian story, last paragraph of Washington Post. And you wonder why Washington is in a bubble
The man who pressed the White House to nuke Iran now seems to have threatened Jeb Bush over the fact that a foreign policy adviser, James Baker, addressed a liberal Zionist group last month. Sheldon Adelson was “ripshit” over the speech, National Review reports.
Republican Jewish consultants say Obama’s policy is sending big Jewish donors to the Republicans, thereby threatening Hillary Clinton’s ability to win
“If I put together a finance team that will make me financially competitive enough to stay in this thing…I may have the first all-Jewish cabinet in America,” Sen. Lindsey Graham joked, but he is telling the truth about the political process, and reporters have an obligation to explore the role of the Israel lobby in our politics. So far, crickets.
Haim Saban hints that Hillary Clinton is against the Iran deal, a strategic move to make sure Republicans don’t get the pro-Israel money that they seem to think is in play
Center for American Progress has links to Hillary Clinton and Democratic Party. Is that why it’s having an event on “Palestinian issues” that doesn’t include a single Palestinian?
The American public is overwhelmingly behind the Iran deal. So who is against it and demanding that Congress has oversight? Only the rightwing Israel lobby. Though yesterday Obama got the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to reject “two of Netanyahu’s demands”
At a time when the New York Times is openly reporting on pro-Israel money in the political process, Ed Schultz has questioned his loyalty to Netanyahu on MSNBC, Chuck Schumer would be risking political peril if he undermines Obama on the historic Iran deal.
Why is the liberal press not embracing Rand Paul’s antiwar position? Because the elites have nothing to lose from another war in the Middle East, and even Dems have big political contributions to gain.
A storm erupted on Rand Paul’s announcement day for the presidential nomination when Chris Matthews decried the neocon opposition to Paul, “piggish money” that is against him because he’s against another Middle East war.
In an interview with Tom Friedman of the New York Times, President Obama shows that he has won on foreign policy, speaking warmly of Iran and repeatedly referring to differences with Netanyahu in a kind of goodbye to the Israel lobby
The US and Israel share a common outlook, calling for continuous military interventionism outside each country’s borders with increased exercise of authority by the military and other security services within their borders. This is no accident. It can be traced back to joint right-wing extremist efforts in both countries with American neoconservatives playing key roles.
