Keith Olbermann’s back and he’s got a blog! Go get ‘em, KO!

– The latest attack on WikiLeaks: Unsupported accusations of anti-semitism leveled at Julian Assange. Yup, if they can’t try him in the courts or (as Paul Craig Roberts discussed) assassinate him, they’ll work to make him a pariah by slapping the anti-semite tag on him.

– Speaking of slapping folks with undeserved anti-semite tags, Pete Seeger just got one for his joining the BDS (Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions) campaign intended to persuade Israel to turn away from the path of racism and eliminationism. He shares this distinction with Dov Yermiya, a former IDF officer and whistleblower who is heartsick over what people like Bibi Netanyahu and Avigdor Lieberman have done.

– With the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War’s start this year, Sarah Anderson (via Sally Jo Sorensen’s Bluestem Prairie) reminds us that the safety net which Koch Bircher Tea Party Republicans are so intent on slashing is what kept America together in the aftermath of the Civil War.
