Is the decrepit state of the American left - you just have to cry when Dr Mahathir, who tried to protect his country from the predations of financial monsters, predations which have had horrible effects on the poor in Asia and Eastern Europe,  is airily dismissed by what passes for American progressives as an 'anti-Semite' - due to the 'red scare' of the 40s and 50s?

"Obama's Greatest Betrayal :  The Coming Sell-Out to the Super Rich and What It Means for the Rest of Us" by Michael Hudson.  The United States appears to be in the middle of an experiment to see how much the bottom 98% of the population is prepared to put up with.  No matter how hard the beatings they cry out for more.

From Reddit.

Jean-Luc Godard must have a special pass which allows him to tell the truth:
"In Film socialisme it is said that although Hollywood was founded by Jews, everyone is looking in the same direction. Do Jews stand for diversity?
For commerce. The big studios were founded by Jews from central Europe, especially from Germany. Why did they go to Hollywood? Because they could get access to the American financial sector. The Jews were neither authorized to be bankers or doctors, nor lawyers or professors. That’s why they concentrated on something new: cinema. The Jews also came to an arrangement with the mafia quite quickly. But if you say this, immediately you are accused of being an anti-Semite, even though this is not true. People don’t see the images - one should have a closer look at the people who founded Las Vegas."
Canadians aren't so lucky: "Coalition plans to push governments, universities to adopt definition of anti-Semitism that outlaw criticism of Israel"

"In any rational order, Lieberman would be a doorman"  Lieberman's argument appears to be that the British decision to steal land from the Arabs to give to the Jews is anti-Jewish colonialism because the British decided not to steal all the land from the Arabs!

"What a deal!"  Does Israel get the fighter planes and the UN veto even if there is no peace deal?  If so, we've reached a new pinnacle of American embarrassment.

"Pope's Failed Assassin Blames The Vatican, Not Bulgaria"  Wouldn't be the first time that Vatican insiders decided to replace a Pope.
