It would be hard to think of anyone who has done more to undermine American freedoms than Joseph Lieberman.

Since 9/11, the Independent senator from Connecticut has introduced a raft of legislation in the name of the “global war on terror” which has steadily eroded constitutional rights. If the United States looks increasingly like a police state, Senator Lieberman has to take much of the credit for it.

On October 11, 2001, exactly one month after 9/11, Lieberman introduced S. 1534, a bill to establish a Department of Homeland Security. Since then, he has been the main mover behind such draconian legislation as the Protect America Act of 2007, the Enemy Belligerent, Interrogation, Detention, and Prosecution Act of 2010, and the proposed Terrorist Expatriation Act, which would revoke the citizenship of Americans suspected of terrorism. And now the senator from Connecticut wants to kill the Internet.

According to the bill he recently proposed in the Senate, the entire global internet is to be claimed as a “national asset” of the United States. If Congress passes the bill, the US President would be given the power to “kill” the internet in the event of a “national cyber-emergency.” Supporters of the legislation say this is necessary to prevent a “cyber 9/11” – yet another myth from the fearmongers who brought us tales of “Iraqi WMD” and “Iranian nukes.”

Lieberman’s concerns about the internet are not new. The United States Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, which Lieberman chairs, released a report in 2008 titled “Violent Islamist Extremism, The Internet, and the Homegrown Terrorist Threat.” The report claimed that groups like al-Qaeda use the internet to indoctrinate and recruit members, and to communicate with each other.

Immediately after the report was published, Lieberman asked Google, the parent company of You Tube, to “immediately remove content produced by Islamist terrorist organizations.” That might sound like a reasonable request. However, as far as Lieberman is concerned, Hamas, Hezbollah and even the Iranian Revolutionary Guard are terrorist organizations.

It’s hardly surprising that Lieberman’s views on what constitute terrorism parallel those of Tel Aviv. As Mark Vogel, chairman of the largest pro-Israel Political Action Committee (PAC) in the United States, once said: “Joe Lieberman, without exception, no conditions … is the No. 1 pro-Israel advocate and leader in Congress. There is nobody who does more on behalf of Israel than Joe Lieberman.”

Lieberman has been well-rewarded for his patriotism – to another country. In the past six years, he has been the Senate’s top recipient of political contributions from pro-Israel PACs with a staggering $1,226,956.

But what is it that bothers Lieberman so much about the internet? Could it be that it allows ordinary Americans access to facts which reveal exactly what kind of “friend” Israel has been to its overgenerous benefactor? Facts which they have been denied by the pro-Israel mainstream media.

How much faith would American voters have in the likes of Lieberman, who claims that the Jewish state is their greatest ally, if they knew that Israeli agents planted firebombs in American installations in Egypt in 1954 in an attempt to undermine relations between Nasser and the United States; that Israel murdered 34 American servicemen in a deliberate attack on the USS Liberty on June 8, 1967; that Israeli espionage, most notably Jonathan Pollard’s spying, has done tremendous damage to American interests; that five Mossad agents were filming and celebrating as the Twin Towers collapsed on September 11, 2001; that Tel Aviv and its accomplices in Washington were the source of the false pre-war intelligence on Iraq; and about countless other examples of treachery?

In his latest attempt to censor the internet, does Lieberman really want to protect the American people from imaginary cyber-terrorists? Or is he just trying to protect his treasonous cronies from the American people?

    What I would like to investigate is the involvement already in the technology relevant to the Internet owned by Jews or Israeli companies.
    I think we may all get a big surprise.
    I refer to telephone companies, security organisations, command and or control systems, switching networks etc.
    I am aware of an internet site, Australians for Palestine who have been taken down twice in the last month. This is not an accident but an on-purpose act of internet espionage.

    Just as we have seen over time the media industry, together with entertainment, banking, electronics and other key industries infiltrated by Israeli based organisations acting as a fifth column in the US, so the internet could be seen as the nest ‘mark’ for the so-called friend of America.

    The fact that Lieberman has it in his sights, perhaps the greatest spy for Israel in 30 years, means that all precautions should be taken to protect all activist operations throughout the world.

    We don’t own the media and in the main with few exceptions, the media is an unfriendly hands, so the internet is important, critical in fact, our home. Protect it!\

    As for the Liebermans and Schumers fo this world, their day is coming, the moment America wakes from its deep slumber.

    ‘I’ CT Lie Berman’s known as, “The Senator from Israel”.
    Last election he got booted in the primary, then all the Jewish money came in from everywhere starting with New York’s Bloomberg. The ‘I’ doesn’t stand for “Independent”, nor his middle initial, it stands, as he does, for Israel.

    Thank you for exposing dictator and tyrant Joseph Lieberman in clear language.

    Joseph Lieberman is an insane man–a Zionist Jewish tyrant–and a traitor to the United States. Prosecute this traitor to the full extent of the law. Zionist Jewish tyranny is spreading across America. How can we expect these tyrants to honor our Constitution and protect our civil liberties? They only care about Israel and their own race.

    Professor Stephen Walt deserves thanks for shedding light on certain aspects of the war-machine and naming the individual(s) responsible for this atrocity against humanity in clear language–without mixing the truth with half truths and baloney.

    General Smedley Butler said war is a racket. General Patton wrote in his diary about how Germany was destroyed in WW2 and the part played by Eisenhower.

    You Maidhc O’ Cathail have written fantastic articles about those who are instrumental in waging wars–which they call “war against terror”–yet the real terrorists who wage and sponsor terror: Zionist Israel and Zionist Jews are so far unaffected–and they have continued their terror on innocent Muslims and their tyranny on American citizens specially those who are their critics.

    I have personal experience of being spied upon since 2006–not by Muslims–but by the usual suspects: Jews. I live in Providence RI [where Mossad spies have invaded this city in increasing numbers in the last 2 to 3 months] run by a corrupt Jewish mayor and a corrupt Jewish police chief.

    These people watch everything I do: my whereabouts, whom I speak to in person and on the phone, my web activities including whom I email etc–and now they even live around me in several apartment buildings scattered around where I live including the same apartment buiding I live. If I speak to anyone the person becomes reluctant to talk to me again because the spies have warned them about what a “dangerous” person I am. [I am a 65 year old retired woman MD with plenty of grey hair who has seen the world and who have knowledge of the real engineers (social, racial, geo {HAARP generated twisters, earthquakes, heavy rain and mudslides and levy breaches to cause floods and deliberate arson fires that have destroyed millions of homes, chemtrais] financial, banking, mortgage, educational, medical, legal and other atrocities like the poisoning of our water supply and food supply, vaccines) and the wars they have waged WW1, WW2 and others to kill and destroy humanity.

    Not to mention the murders of so many people who have stood in their way or they merely perceived that they were a hindrance–or they were envious of these people of the Anglo-Saxan descent like the Germans–and I have written about these various things and even mailed letters with this information–I gathered from reading and through speaking to over thousand people, most of them were Brown University students and their parents and visitors to Brown. Among the things I discovered was the relationship between the president of Brown who is/was a friend to Goldman Sachs bankers as well as to Providence mayor and police chief and how some of the Brown crimes ended up in the Providence police log. Brown University went international so now they can bring more criminals to Brown including Mossad agents–and give them PhDs and all kinds of degrees–while engaged in spying/drug/hooker business and organized crime against American people.

    These things they dont want you to talk about.

    Jewish mayor and police chief cannot be relied upon to protect non-Jewish critics of Israel and Zionist Jews and these two represent part of the Jewish tyranny their critics face.

    They started spying on me in 2006 when I first started criticizing Anti-American, anti-white, anti-Christian activities of Jews and the spying activities have got escalated since then.

    There are decent FBI officials still serving the FBI although the leadership of this organization is corrupt as the head is a Zionist stooge–who has continued his tyranny on American citizens from Bush to Obama. Same thing is seen with the Home Land Security where the leadership has changed but tyranny has continued.

    A recent Ugly Truth Podcast has a song written by Mark Glenn and sung by Mark and Glenn Children. Their performance is excellent–and dont miss it please.
