LIEBERMAN LOSS IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWED BY ''HOMELAND SECURITY ALERT''

by Islamic Community Net Friday, Aug. 11, 2006 at 6:37 AM

Other politicians are starting to see the advisability of giving up on Bush and his Crusader Rabbit genocide against Islam. So immediately a massive 9/11-style plot to blow up 20 airplanes using unspecified "liquid explosives" is conveniently and suddenly "discovered", just in time to terrify the American sheeple and thus put those wavering politicians back in line.

LIEBERMAN LOSS IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWED BY ''HOMELAND SECURITY ALERT''

Assalamu aleikum.

Well, naturally.

Zionist US Senator and former Al Gore vice-presidential candidate Joe Lieberman, Bush's personal donkey, was defeated by his own Democratic party in the Connecticut primary election on Tuesday. The reason is well understood to be Lieberman's outrageous support for dajjal Bush's so-called "War on Terror" both domestically and internationally.

The result is that other politicians are starting to see the advisability of giving up on Bush and his Crusader Rabbit genocide against Islam.

So immediately a massive 9/11-style plot to blow up 20 airplanes using unspecified "liquid explosives" is conveniently and suddenly "discovered", just in time to terrify the American sheeple and thus put those wavering politicians back in line.

How transparent! Yet the American sheeple will once again prove just how naive they are by demanding from their own politicians yet more suppression of their own liberties in the name of "homeland security".

US raises security threat level to "severe"

Reuters

Thu Aug 10, 2006

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is taking immediate steps to increase security measures in the aviation sector in coordination with heightened security precautions in the United Kingdom, the department said in a statement on Thursday.

"For that reason, the United States Government has raised the nation's threat level to Severe, or Red, for commercial flights originating in the United Kingdom bound for the United States," the statement said.

Top Democrats flee Lieberman camp

The senator vowed to push on as analysts debated what his loss augured for the party in the fall.

HARTFORD, CONN. - Sen. Joseph Lieberman, D-Conn., found himself a political orphan Wednesday.

His party's leaders, his friends and liberal activists all seemed to have turned against him the day after Connecticut Democrats rejected his bid for a fourth term and voted for antiwar activist Ned Lamont, 52 percent to 48 percent.

Lieberman vowed to wage an independent campaign to hold his seat regardless of pressure to drop out and endorse Lamont. "My mind is made up," he said on NBC-TV. "I'm going forward. I'm going forward because I'm fed up with all the partisanship in Washington that stops us from getting anything done."

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., who'd supported Lieberman's reelection, offered Lamont support and campaign contributions. Liberal blogger David Sirota urged that Lieberman be stripped of his Senate committee assignments if he runs.

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, said in a statement, "The perception was that he was too close to George Bush and this election was, in many respects, a referendum on the president more than anything else."

Rep. Rahm Emanuel, D-Ill., chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, said he saw the election as a good sign for Democrats because it meant that voters are angry enough to turn out incumbents -- of whom there are more Republicans than Democrats. He linked Lieberman's loss to the Tuesday primary defeats of Reps. Cynthia McKinney, D-Ga., and Joe Schwarz, R-Mich.

But two independent analysts said party leaders were overreaching. Amy Walter, who analyzes House races for the Cook Political Report, said McKinney lost because of a history of erratic behavior. "If you have any political baggage, this is not a year in which you can stow it in the overhead bin and hope nobody will notice," she said.

She said Lieberman and Schwarz lost because of ideological splits in their parties more than anti-incumbent fever, noting that no other House Democrats appear vulnerable.

And Stuart Rothenberg, editor of the Rothenberg Political Report, said, "We saw where the heart and soul of the Democratic Party is. It's against the war and angry at the president. But it's Connecticut. It's a liberal state. And we're talking about Joe Lieberman, who is almost unique in cozying up to the president and criticizing those who criticize the president.

"Democrats in the Northeast are more liberal and are holding their candidates to a higher standard. The Democratic base in the South and Midwest is of a different ilk. There's no message for Senator Ben Nelson," a Nebraska Democrat.

GOP Chairman Ken Mehlman issued a statement that said of Lieberman's defeat, "It speaks volumes about the new Democrat Party: if you stand for a strong defense and victory in the War on Terror, you have no place in the party and you must be purged. ... Watch how the new Democrat Party always chooses weakness over strength, blaming America first."

But White House Press Secretary Tony Snow said, "I know a lot of people have tried to make this a referendum on the president; I would flip it.

"I think instead it's a defining moment for the Democratic Party, whose national leaders now have made it clear that if you disagree with the extreme left in their party they're going to come after you."
