    ormer U.S. Sen. Joseph Lieberman, in an interview with JTA, surmised that the next U.S. administration would be friendlier with Israel than the current one. The onetime vice presidential candidate also expressed concern over America’s nuclear negotiations with Iran, saying they are “going in a bad direction,” and urged Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to embrace the long-shelved Arab Peace Initiative. Lieberman predicted that if the 2016 presidential election were held today, a higher percentage of Jewish-Americans would vote Republican than in past races. But he noted that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the party’s front-runner for the Democratic...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has a person in mind to replace outgoing Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel: Joe Lieberman. Cruz floated the former Connecticut independent senator as a “strong” option to succeed Hagel, who announced his resignation earlier Monday. President Barack Obama has not yet named a proposed replacement. “One strong option would be former Sen. Joe Lieberman, a member of the president’s own party with deep experience and unshakable commitment to the security of the United States,” Cruz said. “I urge the president to give him full and fair consideration for this critical position.”(continued)

    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...

    While the tumultuous events in Egypt and Syria have focused the public's attention on civil strife in those countries, Iran remains the biggest threat to the United States in the Mideast, says former Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman. "The most dangerous challenge to U.S. national security brewing in the region continues to be the Iranian regime's pursuit of a nuclear-weapons capability," Lieberman, who served in the Senate as both a Democrat and an independent, writes in The Wall Street Journal.
  • Lieberman: Obama admin. refuses to use phrase ‘violent Islamist extremism’

    The Daily Caller ^ | Sept 1, 2011 | Nicholas Ballasy
    Sen. Joe Lieberman, the independent Connecticut chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, said Thursday that the Obama administration has refused to use the term “violent Islamist extremism,” arguing that the White House’s overly cautious word parsing constitutes a refusal to ”speak honestly.” Sen. Lieberman, an independent who caucuses with Democrats, also said this makes the global fight against Islamic terrorism “harder” for the United States. Lieberman focused his criticism on a recent report issued by the administration, titled “Empowering Local Partners to Prevent Violent Extremism in the United States,” saying that it “suffers from several significant...

    Quinnipiac University, among other things, has an extremely reliable and newsworthy polling institute which recently just came out with yet another interesting poll for Connecticut voters. A poll taken just two days ago on Wednesday reveals Linda McMahon, a Republican candidate for Senate, cutting into the previous 20 point deficit she held against Democrat Richard Blumenthal. McMahon, maybe from her massive commercial and mailing spree, is coming significantly close to Mr. Blumenthal. Director of the Quinnipiac Polling institute, Dr. Douglas Schwartz says that the reason Mrs. McMahon is reaching the hearts and minds of many voters is because of the...

The legislation announced Thursday says that companies such as broadband providers, search engines, or software firms that the government selects "shall immediately comply with any emergency measure or action developed" by the Department of Homeland Security. Anyone failing to comply would be fined.

    Senator Joe Lieberman told Eyewitness News 3 that it is possible that he could run as a “good old-fashioned New England Republican” in 2012. Lieberman says he was kicked out of the Democratic party in the 2006 primary after his stance on the Iraq War. For the record, Joe Lieberman was right on Iraq. The surge was a huge success and today Iraq is continuing to take steps on its path towards democracy… no thanks to the cut-and-run democrats and the state-run media who did everything they could to impede success in this front against Al-Qaeda and radical Islam.

The caucus is due to meet Tuesday to decide whether Lieberman, a Democrat-turned-independent from Connecticut, should be punished for his aggressive support of Sen. John McCain , R-Ariz., for president. Secret ballot, eh? Well, reminding Democrats of this episode should prove amusing when they try and pass card check legislation.

    Sen. Joe Lieberman's affiliation with Democrats was in question after a meeting Thursday with Majority Leader Harry Reid, steamed over the Connecticut independent's high-profile support of John McCain for president. Reid, in a sternly worded statement after the 45-minute meeting, said no official decisions have been made. But an aide to the Nevada Democrat said Reid was leaning toward removing Lieberman as chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. The aide spoke on condition of anonymity because the discussions were confidential. "While I understand that Sen. Lieberman has voted with Democrats a majority of the time, his...
