Joe Lieberman Authored The Internet Kill Switch Bill
Advertisement
"On June 19, 2010, Lieberman introduced a bill called "Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act of 2010",[70] which he co-wrote with Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) and Senator Thomas Carper (D-DE). If signed into law, this controversial bill, which the American media dubbed the "Kill switch bill", would grant the President emergency powers over the Internet. However, all three co-authors of the bill issued a statement claiming that instead, the bill "[narrowed] existing broad Presidential authority to take over telecommunications networks".[71] American computer security specialist and author Bruce Schneier objected to the "kill switch" proposal on the basis that it rests on several faulty assumptions and that it's "too coarse a hammer". Schneier wrote:

Quote:Defending his proposal, Sen. Lieberman pointed out that China has this capability. It's debatable whether or not it actually does, but it's actively pursuing the capability because the country cares less about its citizens. Here in the U.S., it is both wrong and dangerous to give the president the power and ability to commit Internet suicide and terrorize Americans in this way.
"

"Lieberman further inflamed skeptics when he cited China's similar policy in a backfired attempt to show the policy's normalcy.[4] However, the bill would allow the President to enact "emergency measures" in the case of a large scale cyber attack.[2] The original bill granted the US President the authority to shut down part of the internet indefinitely, but in a later amendment the maximum time for which the President could control the network was reduced to 120 days. After this period, the networks will have to be brought up, unless Congress approves an extension."

"Former Sen. Joe Lieberman is one of President Donald Trump's top picks to be nominated as FBI director, Trump said Thursday.

Speaking to reporters while meeting with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos, Trump said he is "very close" to choosing a new FBI director to replace James Comey. And asked if Lieberman, the Democrat-turned-independent senator from Connecticut was a top candidate, Trump said yes."

" In April 2001, Sen. Joseph Lieberman introduced the Media Marketing Accountability Act (mmaa) — a bill to prohibit the marketing of “adult-rated media,” i.e., movies, music, and computer games containing violent or sexual material, to young people under the age of 17. The mmaa would empower the Federal Trade Commission to regulate the advertising of entertainment products to young people. The proposed legislation, if enacted, would inject a federal agency into decisions about the marketing of movies, music, and electronic games — and thereby potentially into decisions about what sorts of movies, music, and games are produced."

NormalIsSubjective posted this last night.

"Former Sen. Joseph Lieberman, regarded as the “Republicans’ favorite Democrat” because of his neoconservative foreign affairs agenda, represented Connecticut initially as a Democrat and later as an “Independent Democrat.” First elected to the Senate in 1988, Lieberman retired at the end of his term in 2013.

In the Senate, Lieberman regularly teamed up with like-minded Republican colleagues—notably Sens. John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and Jon Kyl—to promote militarist security policies. He earned a reputation as a foreign policy hawk for his outspoken support for the war in Iraq and for his consistent collaboration with neoconservative-led advocacy groups pushing for interventionist policies in the Middle East.

Since leaving office, Lieberman has continued his foreign policy advocacy, joining numerous neoconservative groups, in particular the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), where he co-chaired with former Senator Kyl its American Internationalism Project, a purportedly cross-party initiative meant “to rebuild and reshape a bipartisan consensus around American global leadership and engagement.”[1] His tenure at AEI, wrote one commentator, allowed Lieberman “to pontificate to a sympathetic audience about why he regards even mild opposition to his intransigent bellicosity as benighted obstructionism.” http://rightweb.irc-online.org/profile/lieberman_joe/

"Senator Joseph I. Lieberman, the Connecticut Democrat, and Representative Billy Tauzin of Louisiana, a leading Congressional Republican, have renewed a push for recording companies to toughen labeling standards on sexually explicit and violent lyrics. But the music industry is in no rush to comply.

Mr. Lieberman and Mr. Tauzin, chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, want the recording industry to go beyond the current advisory system, which says, ''Parental Advisory, Explicit Content.''

They want a warning system that says exactly what is explicit about the content. Does the music, for example, contain strong language? Is there sexual or violent content, or both? Then parents can decide up front if they want their children listening to certain CD's."

"Senate Democrats say ‘hell no’ to Trump’s choice of Joe Lieberman for FBI Director"



"Democrats in the U.S. Senate gave a solid thumbs down to President Donald Trump’s announcement that he is likely to choose retired Sen. Joe Lieberman to replace former FBI Director James Comey.

According to Politico, if Trump thought that Lieberman would be a choice welcomed by Democrats, he got it squarely wrong. Lieberman is not popular among his former Senate colleagues. From a series of policy defections on key issues to Lieberman’s decision to run as an independent in Connecticut after he lost the Democratic primary to challenger Ned Lamont in 2006, the former senator made many enemies among his own caucus.

Furthermore, critics of Trump’s decision stress that the role of FBI director should be filled by someone who isn’t a politician. Lieberman was Al Gore’s vice presidential running mate in 2000 and ran for president himself in 2004.

“I don’t think there’s going to be much excitement about that from our side of the aisle. Not because we don’t respect Joe Lieberman. But we need a law enforcement professional, not someone who’s run for office before,” said Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) to Politico. “We don’t need anyone who’s put on a red shirt or blue shirt. Or who’s campaigned for president.”

“He has a history of angering Democrats and Republicans, which is probably a good experience for being FBI director. But my concern is about someone with a political background. This is a moment for someone with a law enforcement background,” said Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) — currently the senator in Lieberman’s old seat. “It’s really important to restore people’s faith in the FBI."”

I used to live in CT and most people there did not like Lieberman, but he kept getting elected.

Yes, they are trying to make it seem as if he is not a popular choice among leftists. That is subterfuge and a deliberate misdirection in order to make Trump supporters view this as a good appointment.

"“I’m an Independent Democrat, I never changed parties, and I’m going to vote for Hillary Clinton because I’ve known her forever. She’s strong, she’s smart, she understands national security, and what I was most impressed with during our years in the Senate together is that she reached across party lines to build coalitions and get stuff done,” he said."

http://www.foxbusiness.com/features/2016...-pick.html

So, people "voted" for a supposedly anti-establishment candidate so that he could appoint members of the left, who aligned themselves with the Christian left. posing as the Christian right, and who are all about media censorship that would benefit the establishment and the leftist agenda to high up positions of government?

Lieberman looks like a fellow swamp dweller to me. Why would someone who is supposed to be draining the swamp make this kind of an appointment?

However, Lieberman is also a senior counsel at Kasowitz, Benson, Torres—a law firm specializing in commercial litigation that has represented Trump on numerous legal issues.
