Sheldon Adelson is beginning to attain Koch Brothers-like standing for American liberals. The press is finally beginning to pick up on a real problem, the corruption of the Republican presidential process by the man who wants to nuke Iran.

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.
The New York Times has finally done it: an honest piece about the Israel lobby’s financial influence over Congress, the Republican side of the aisle, anyway. Netanyahu’s influence among Republicans reflects the power of “a small group of wealthy donors.”
New York Times Jerusalem bureau chief Jodi Rudoren suggests Obama owes some sort of compensation to Israel for not kowtowing to Netanyahu on Iran. The Times did not get the message that Netanyahu got knocked down, left behind and hung out to dry in Lausanne, Switzerland two days ago. He’s been demoted, not the other way around.
The Adelson primary is afoot! The race among Republican presidential hopefuls to get money from the leading backer of Republican candidates, Sheldon Adelson. Jeb Bush says Obama is anonymously insulting Israeli leaders. “This is no way to treat an ally.”
Netanyahu’s effort to get the US in a war with Iran has caused infighting in the Israel lobby. Barney Frank said that Israel and AIPAC had lobbied members of Congress a decade ago to support the disastrous war in Iraq.
A New York Times profile on the meteroric Senator Tom Cotton repeatedly refers to his connections to Bill Kristol but never mentions Kristol is head of the Emergency Committee for Israel and speaks at the Israel lobby group AIPAC.
The author of the letter to Iranian leaders undermining Obama’s diplomacy, Senator Tom Cotton seems to love war a little too much, and neoconservative Israel supporters began grooming him years ago
Who wrote the 47 Republican senators’ awful letter to Iran? Not Tom Cotton of Arkansas. J Street speculates Bill Kristol. A former AIPAC staffer says, AIPAC. The media have an obligation to turn a harsh light on the Israel lobby groups who are supporting the letter
Chris Matthews of MSNBC is shocked by the effort to “displace” Obama with Netanyahu as leader of our foreign policy. Netanyahu was “behind” the U.S. war in Iraq and he “treats us like rubes” on Iran.
Amid overwhelming praise for the Netanyahu speech from cable analysts, some sanity is breaking through. Marc Ginsberg said Netanyahu was likening Obama to a Nazi appeaser, Nancy Pelosi said she was in tear from the insult to the intelligence of the U.S. and Christiane Ahmanpour called it “dark, Strangelovian.”
In a hysterical ad in the New York Times, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach uses his friend Samantha Power, the UN ambassador, against Obama national security adviser Susan Rice, when he accuses Rice of condoning genocide against Jews
