    Sen. John McCain was one of three Republicans who helped shoot down the "skinny" repeal of Obamacare early Friday morning, and two retired D.C. politicians reportedly helped talk him into the "no" vote. Former Vice President Joe Biden and former Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., both pressed McCain to oppose Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's efforts to advance a plan that ultimately aimed to repeal and replace portions of Obamacare, according to a Washington Post report.....
  • John McCain: Democrats 'Clearly' Killed Joe Lieberman's Shot at Becoming FBI Director

    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Democrats meddled with former Sen. Joe Lieberman's chances of becoming FBI Director in the wake of President Donald Trump's firing of James Comey. McCain said that the Democrats' opposition to Lieberman stopped him from being selected for the post after the Trump Administration signaled that he was on the shortlist. "My Democratic colleagues clearly did [kill Lieberman's chances]," McCain told reporters Wednesday, according to CNN. "This is their nominee for vice president of the United States. If anything would make you cynical about this town, that's it." Lieberman was indeed the Democratic vice presidential nominee...

    Ivanka will never as she states make Liberals like your presidency, an impossible dream sprinkled with fairytale dust and born of absolute stupidity “Screw Them!” Senator John McCain’s vulgar rebuke of the critics of a possible FBI role for Joe Lieberman is all President Donald Trump needs to know about Lieberman being the wrong man for the job. Both McCain and Lieberman don’t know which side they’re on, only swimming across the stream to touch the bank with their exploratory toes when there’s something in it for them. On any day, McCain could give Democrat House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi...
  • Lieberman Is a Finalist for F.B.I. Director, Trump Says

    President Trump, 24 hours from his self-imposed deadline for picking a new F.B.I. director, told reporters on Thursday that he was “very close” to choosing a successor to James B. Comey, and he named Joseph I. Lieberman, the former Democratic senator and vice-presidential nominee, as a finalist. But members of Mr. Trump’s staff — alarmed by his rapid embrace of Mr. Lieberman, a charming 75-year-old political operator with no federal law enforcement experience — have quietly urged him to take more time to make such a critical hire. By late Thursday, the president appeared increasingly likely to leave Friday for...

    Israel's defense minister said on Sunday Iran had an ultimate objective of undermining Saudi Arabia in the Middle East and called for a dialogue with Sunni Arab states to defeat "radical" elements in the region. Iran aimed to "undermine stability in every country in Middle East ... their main destination at the end of the day is Saudi Arabia," Avigdor Lieberman told delegates at the Munich Security Conference, saying he was looking forward to hearing comments from Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir. "The real division is not Jews, Muslims ... but moderate people versus radical people," he said.

    At the risk of "offending" the millions of people who supported and fought for him, Donald Trump should drop Mitt Romney from consideration for Secretary of State, best-selling author and radio host Wayne Allyn Root wrote for Townhall. He added, there are two darkhorse names the President-elect should consider for his administration: Joe Lieberman and Ted Cruz. Root, an early supporter of Trump's, makes the case for Cruz for the Supreme Court vacancy, and offers up 5 reasons why Lieberman would be a solid choice for Secretary of State: •Expand the GOP tent looking ahead to 2020. •Expand the tent...
  • Lieberman: World More Dangerous, Leaderless Than Ever -

    03/02/2016 4:02:35 AM PST · by HomerBohn · 13 replies
    Joe Lieberman, the former Connecticut senator and vice-presidential candidate, wrote in a Washington Post op-ed this week that the world was suffering due to a lack of American leadership. Lieberman, who identified as a Democrat for most of his political career, did not call President Obama out by name. But in his critique of the world stage, he certainly left little doubt as to what he thinks about the current administration. “The simple fact is that there is more instability in the world today than at any time since the end of World War II,” Lieberman wrote. “The threats come...

    On Sunday, New York City’s AM 970 host John Catsimatidis had former Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) on his “The Cats Roundtable” program to talk about the Iran nuclear deal. Lieberman started off by ripping the White House for its proposed Iran nuke deal by saying, “First, it’s a deal with somebody we can’t trust. Why? Because they have said for years and continue to say even after the agreement was signed, ‘Death to America.'”

    Sen. John McCain, incoming chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said he has told the White House that former Sen. Joe Lieberman should be the next secretary of defense. McCain made the suggestion when White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough contacted him seeking a recommendation. The Arizona Republican told The Washington Post he doubted that President Barack Obama would take his advice and choose Lieberman to replace current Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, who announced his resignation last week. Lieberman, a Democratic senator from Connecticut from 1989 to 2013, was Vice President Al Gore's running mate in the 2000...

    As I watched conservatives seethe Wednesday, and Chris McDaniel (so devoted to describing his martyrdom that I think he’s a day or two away from nailing himself to a cross) boil, I came to feel—to a certain point—sympathy. If the situation were reversed, I thought, and a sellout Democrat had defeated a more progressive opponent on the strength of votes from Republicans, I have to confess I wouldn’t like it a bit. And just as I thought about that, I remembered: Wait. This happened. And it was kind of similar. But it was also quite dissimilar, in ways that are...

    Hi people. Its been a while since I posted, but I feel the man who REALLY deserves the credit for making Obama and the other Democrats look like fools is not getting the credit he deserves - and that is Joe Lieberman. As some of you may remember, Senator Lieberman would not support the "Public Option", which was a fairly-cleverly designed plan to have a government-run policy show up when you went to the Obamacare website. The public option, of course, would be priced at the level the government chooses, and would not have to be accountable to anyone as...

    The U.S-Russia plan to dismantle Syria's chemical weapons is drawing attention to Israel's own suspected chemical stockpile and could raise pressure on the Jewish state to come clean about its capabilities. Israel signed the landmark international treaty banning the production or use of chemical weapons two decades ago, but it is among a handful if nations that have never ratified the deal. ...

    MK Avigdor Lieberman, Head of the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, said Saturday that if he were prime minister, he'd order the IDF to conquer Gaza. Speaking on Voice of Israel radio, Lieberman said that there is "a dubious quiet" in Gaza at the moment, which is being used by Hamas for building its power. Regarding the rebellion and coup in Egypt, Lieberman said that he has no doubt that jihadist elements in Sinai will try to take advantage of the situation in order to hurt Israel. He said that Israel has an interest in Egypt's stability. Lieberman said...

Glick Nakoula Basseley Nakoula has been sitting in a US federal prison in Texas since his photographed midnight arrest by half a dozen deputy sheriffs at his home in California for violating the terms of his parole. As many reporters have noted, the parole violation in question would not generally lead to anything more than a court hearing. But in Nakoula’s case, it led to a year in a federal penitentiary. Because he wasn’t really arrested for violating the terms of his parole. Nakoula was arrested for producing...

    The Arab Balad party's election video is an animated clip showing Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman and several nationalist MKs singing Hatikva in to a Middle Eastern tune. Video In the clip, Lieberman explains that he was the one who proposed a law requiring citizens to pledge allegiance to the state of Israel in order to be eligible for an ID card. He then announces that he has now become convinced that the tune of Hatikva – Israel's national anthem – should be changed so that Arabs feel comfortable singing it as well. The well-executed clip follows, with MKs Aryeh Eldad,...

    Yisrael Beiteinu head Avigdor Lieberman, until recently the Foreign Minister, reacted with joy Friday as Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas threatened to quit if negotiations do not resume. Abbas has refused to negotiate in absence of several Israeli concessions, including a complete freeze on construction east of the 1949 armistice line. According to Lieberman, Israel "can't wait" for Abbas to follow through on his threat. "We congratulate Abu Mazen [Abbas] for reaching the correct conclusion, that only his leave from the PA leadership will allow the diplomatic process to resume," Lieberman said. "We anxiously await the official announcement from the...

    At the end of this year, I will retire from the United States Senate. As my twenty-four years in Congress draw to a close, I want to thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve as your Senator. This has been an extraordinary privilege. During my career, I have always been inspired by the strength shown by people through even our darkest days; and this past Friday, December 14th, was certainly one of the darkest in Connecticut’s history. But even in the wake of the terrible tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School, we remain as united by our resolve...

    Avigdor Lieberman responded Thursday to the recent indictment of fraud and breach of trust brought against him, saying he has been the target of suspicion and questioning for a long time now. Hinting that he has no intention of resigning, he said he hopes the matter will be settled as soon as possible. The Attorney General charged that Lieberman used his influence to promote the former Israeli ambassador to Belarus because the ambassador illegally leaked information about an investigation against him. "The investigation against me has been going on for sixteen years," said Lieberman. "From July 1996 there has not...

    Former Democrat Joe Lieberman used his last speech on the U.S. Senate floor on Wednesday to call for bipartisanship and get in a last dig over the controversial result of the 2000 election, when he was the Democratic vice presidential nominee. Lieberman, 70, announced in January 2011 that he would retire when his fourth term ends next month rather than seek re-election. He reflected on his career in remarks that lasted for about 20 minutes, recounting landmarks in his career and changes in society since he became a U.S. senator in January 1989. “When I started here in the Senate,...

    The taxes Israel collected for the Palestinian Authority but did not pass on should go to Israel anyway to cover the PA’s debts, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Tuesday, speaking at a Hanukkah event for Yisrael Beytenu party activists. “I hear they’re saying that Israel froze the Palestinians’ tax money. We didn’t freeze any Palestinian money,” he said. “To this point we paid 700 million shekels advance salaries for PA workers and we paid another 900 million when we absorbed the cost of water and electricity that the Palestinians were supposed to pay for but did not… What we’re doing...
