Sources: Joe Lieberman is
front-runner for FBI director

CNN, by Tal Kopan & Gloria Borger*

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 5/18/2017 3:12:37 PM

Washington - Former Sen. Joe Lieberman is the leading contender to be named FBI director, a senior administration official and two other sources told CNN on Thursday. One of the sources said President Donald Trump found the Democrat-turned-independent "agreeable" after meeting with him. (Snip) Trump told television anchors at a lunch Thursday that he was close to making his decision. "I´m very close to choosing an FBI director," the President said, though he did not specify whether his choice was Lieberman. Lieberman emerging as the front-runner was first reported by Politico. The former Connecticut senator was Al Gore's

I honestly thought "old Joe" was dead. Anyway, Trump is wrong to appoint a politico as the head of the FBI. If he were smart, he´d choose one of the "civilian" conservative judges that he may not be able to pick for one of the federal courts or even a successful prosecutor.

If any Democrat is considered, then the Trump administration hasn´t learned a thing.

Personally, I get the impression that Lieberman is a good man who is to easily led by others. I don´t think he´d be a good choice for the FBI.

I´d prefer a military man who has been involved with covert ops, such as a Ranger, or a SEAL, and has risen through the ranks on merit.

I don´t want a poltical hack in there. I want someone who is aware of the politics, but can get their hands dirty and fight to the death if need be.

75 years old, Kosher Jewish, limp wristed politically, tired, not a fighter, lack luster, no law enforcement experience, Ex-Senator, was Al Gore´s running mate for the hotly contested 2000 Presidential election, was a life long Democrat until he became an independant in 2006, was the deciding and crucial 60th vote establishing the Obamacare act (ACA), helped write the legislation for the Homeland Security Act, and was instrumental in getting the military "Don´t ask, Don´t tell" removed. Good friends with Bernie Sanders. refuses to work or participate in any political activity or even ride in a car on the Jewish Sabbath. Hillary Clinton and DNC Chair Howard Dean tried to sabotage his 2006 reelection to the Senate. He became an Independant, but, agreed to caucus with the Democrats in spite of the Republicans being responsible for his re-election win when the Democrats turned viciously against him.

If PT picks this old guy, I will not feel sorry for PT in the aftermath. It´s a 10 year term. Imagine an 85 year old geezer flaming liberal in charge of the FBI.

A U.S. judge ruled on Thursday that a transgender woman could move forward with a sex discrimination lawsuit against her employer under the Americans with Disabilities Act, even though the ADA explicitly excludes transgender people from protection. The plaintiff, Kate Lynn Blatt, becomes the first transgender person to be allowed to sue under the ADA for gender dysphoria, according to her Philadelphia-based lawyer, Neelima Vanguri. But U.S. District Judge Joseph Leeson avoided ruling on the constitutionality of the ADA, as the plaintiffs had sought, under the legal principle that courts should avoid decisions on

Two Chinese fighter jets intercepted a U.S. "sniffer" plane over the East China Sea, two U.S. military officials told NBC News on Thursday. The WC-135 Constant Phoenix aircraft, which "sniffs" the atmosphere for signs of nuclear activity, was conducting a routine mission Wednesday in international airspace over the East China Sea when two Sukhoi Su-30 fighter aircraft intercepted it, the officials said. The officials wouldn´t say whether the confrontation was considered unsafe, but they said the crew of the U.S. plane described it as "unprofessional."

Liberty Counsel now represents four students who independently confirmed and provided additional information regarding the classroom political activism and bullying of Riedas. Her social media confirms her activism during class time. School officials failed to properly address and discipline Riedas’ behavior, despite the obvious contradictory evidence.

There’s only one way to get to the light at the end of the dark tunnel where the mainstream media in sync with the ‘progressives’ have utterly abandoned America.

President Trump’s historic visit to Israel on 22 May presents the perfect opportunity for him to deliver on the promises he made to Israel during last year’s Presidential election campaign. Trump’s broad-ranging foreign policy speech on 27 April 2016 highlighted the disgraceful way Israel had been treated by the Obama Administration: “Israel, our great friend and the one true democracy in the Middle East has been snubbed and criticized by an administration that lacks moral clarity. President Obama has not been a friend to Israel.”

NASA space probes have discovered an artificial barrier around Earth created through human activity—showing we are not only responsible for shaping the environment on land, but that we are now having an impact on space too. The barrier, which comes and goes, is the result of very low frequency radio communications interacting with particles in space, which results in a sort of shield protecting Earth from high energy radiation in space. This, scientists say, is potentially very good news, as we could use the barrier to protect Earth from extreme space weather resulting from events like coronal mass ejections—huge explosions

New York - A US military veteran with a criminal past -- but no apparent terror motive -- plowed a vehicle into a crowd of people in New York´s Times Square on Thursday, killing one person and injuring 22 others. Although the mid-day incident sparked jitters after deadly car-ramming attacks in London, Berlin and the French city of Nice, authorities said there was no evidence that the car crash in the heart of America´s most populous city was terror-related. "Based on the information that we have at this moment, there is no indication that this was an act of terrorism," Mayor Bill de Blasio told a news conference at the scene.

Internet freedom was once a decades-long, bipartisan consensus.

Beirut - The Latest Syria developments (all times local): 8:15 p.m. U.S. officials say an American airstrike has hit pro-Syrian government forces in southern Syria as they were setting up fighting positions in a protected area. The officials say the strike near Tanf hit a tank and a bulldozer and forces there, but it was not clear if they were Syrian army troops or other pro-government allies. One official says the pro-regime forces had entered a so-called "de-confliction" zone without authorization and were perceived as a threat to U.S.-allied troops there. The officials say the strike was a defensive move to protect the U.S. allies.

Hillary Clinton says that she "beat" Donald Trump—and Bernie Sanders—in a lengthy feature article by New York Magazine. "I beat both of them," she said, evidently referencing her popular vote win over Trump. While Clinton did defeat Sanders, who is not a Democrat, in the Democratic primary, she did not defeat Trump, who was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States in January. In the story, Clinton discussed her post-election status as a member of the "Resistance" to Trump, but she also reflected on the 2016 campaign, which included a harder-than-expected fight against Sanders for the nomination.

WASHINGTON — Shortly after President Trump took office, Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader, met privately with his colleagues to discuss the Republican agenda. Repealing the Affordable Care Act was at the top, he said. But replacing it would be really hard. Mr. McConnell was right. The many meetings Republicans held to discuss a Senate health care bill have exposed deep fissures within the party that are almost as large as the differences between Republicans and Democrats. Elements of a bill that passed the House this month have divided Republicans. Mr. McConnell faces an increasingly onerous math problem.

New revelations have surfaced that the Obama administration abused intelligence during the election by launching a massive domestic-spy campaign that included snooping on Trump officials. The irony is mind-boggling: Targeting political opposition is long a technique of police states like Russia, which Team Obama has loudly condemned for allegedly using its own intelligence agencies to hack into our election. The revelations, as well as testimony this week from former Obama intel officials, show the extent to which the Obama administration politicized and weaponized intelligence against Americans. Thanks to Circa News, we now know the National Security Agency under President Barack Obama routinely violated

Boehner, who resigned from his Ohio House seat in October 2015, applauded Trump’s approach to foreign policy — praising his decision to take a strong stand against the Islamic State — but was highly critical of the progress he has made in other areas thus far. “Everything else he’s done [in office] has been a complete disaster,” he said Wednesday, according to energy publication Rigzone. “He’s still learning how to be president.” Boehner and Trump
