Lindsey Graham: Joe Lieberman
´a good choice´ for FBI director

Washington Examiner, by Daniel Chaitin

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 5/18/2017 4:13:03 PM

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Thursday that Joe Lieberman would be a "good choice" for FBI director. The senator was asked about Lieberman by reporters upon walking out of a full-Senate meeting with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who the Trump administration has said made the case that James Comey should be fired as FBI director. Comey was fired by Trump last week amid conflicting accounts about how the decision was reached. Lieberman, a former senator from Connecticut who was Al Gore´s running mate in 2000, is a top candidate for the position, Trump confirmed Thursday. Graham praised Lieberman as

Comments:
Oh groan. How in the world did Lieberman all of a sudden get to be the top pick?? I just do not understand that. In the terrifying world we live in he DOES NOT have the law enforcement background necessary for that position. I´m very concerned over the events of the last few days. Ray Kelly is the best choice IMHO. My only hope is just because Trump said Lieberman is a ´top´ pick doesn´t mean he is THE pick. One can only hope.

Graham´s endorsement removes any doubt that Liebermann´s appointment would be a disaster. Graham is such slimy creature.

If that´s the Best Trump can come up with, I would say he is in big trouble! Of all the smart, YOUNG and experienced people he can pick, who have served this country, he chooses a 75 year old DEMOCRAT! I think that would do it for me! I´m already depressed that he can´t keep his Big Mouth Shut and act like THE PRESIDENT instead of a Whining Teenager! PULEEZE tell me this is just a Leak to throw everyone off the Real person who will get the job!

He is even a few months older than Kelly.

He might be as comfortable as an old shoe for the president. He is honest, relatively independent, competent and easily confirmable. But is he not a bit laid back for this job description?

If Trump thinks picking a Democrat for FBI Director will get the impeachment wolves called off, he better think again. Find a good reliable Republican. Donald, do not listen to Lindsey Graham.

Lieberman is a good man, but not the man for FBI Director.

He can not assauge the visceral hatred of the Democrats. He can not make friends with them. You can not "break bread" with people who are intent on poisoning hem.

Just say NO! to politicians.

The black sheriff who just took a job with Homeland Security David Clarke would be better than old Joe. Oh please the corruption in Washington is beyond belief and Joe Lieberman is the best we have in 300 hundred million people? Come on!

The FBI Director should be, first and foremost, a great policeman--not a politician and not a bureaucrat. I think Ray Kelly, Mayor Giuliani´s stalwart police commissioner, especially in the aftermath of 9/11, is the best qualified. He should be appointed. Lieberman is unqualified.

What is this complimenting Joe Lieberman? An Independent who is a tried and true Democrat? A man who proudly stated on FNC live and in color during the campaign that he proudly intended to vote for Hillary? I don´t remember him ever showing his face to stand against Obama´s dictatorial shredding of the Constitution.

It shows you what a disastrous idea it is that Dr. K thinks its a weak choice.

Princeton is apparently so concerned that its male students could be rapists that it is looking to hire an ´interpersonal violence clinician and men´s engagement manager´ to solve the problem. The New Jersey university´s job listing calls for experts in women´s and gender studies, social work or similar fields to ´foster an environment for healthy male social development.´ That will come by ´challenging belief systems and social constructs that contribute to violence and offering alternative options,´ the listing says.

A man who lived for eight years as a transgender female says President Donald Trump did the right thing for the U.S. military, as well as for all Americans, by banning transgenders from serving in the military. Walt Heyer, who has transitioned back to his birth gender, writes in a commentary that his personal experience leads him to support Trump’s announcement: “I think he made the right decision—and as someone who lived as trans-female for several years, I should know.” Heyer says allowing transgenders to serve is “devastating…to the fitness, readiness, and moral of our combat read troops.” “The military

Democratic senators reintroduced legislation Wednesday to fight global warming by taxing carbon dioxide emissions, in the hopes that some climate-fearing Republicans will offer support. Democratic Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island and Brian Schatz of Hawaii announced new carbon tax legislation at an American Enterprise Institute (AEI) event as part of a broader effort to get conservatives on board with taxing emissions. Most Republicans oppose carbon taxes, but a few have joined the bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus to find “economically-viable options” to global warming. To most Republicans, the Whitehouse-Schatz bill is a $2 trillion tax and wealth redistribution scheme. Climate Caucu

More than 905,000 illegal immigrants have a California driver’s license at this point, and that number could rise to more than a million by January of 2018. By the end of June 2017, more than 900,000 drivers have been registered under California Assembly Bill 60, which requires only proof of identity and residency, not immigration status, in order to receive a license to drive a car. After passage in 2013 because of 15 years of lobbying by liberal pro-immigration groups, the bill was meant to “intended to bolster public safety and reduce penalties for undocumented immigrants who drive,” according to

The Senate voted Wednesday afternoon against a proposal that would repeal major portions of Obamacare without a replacement legislation. Senators voted 55-45 against the measure in a procedural vote Wednesday, which likely signals that a full, clean repeal that conservatives are pushing for could not pass the legislative body. Seven Republicans voted against the measure, including: Sens. Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, Susan Collins of Maine, Dean Heller of Nevada, John McCain of Arizona, Rob Portman of Ohio, Lamar Alexander of Tennessee and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.

When President Trump made his initial remarks reflecting disappointment in Attorney General Jeff Sessions it was initially unnerving. The subsequent fallout from the public criticism has united the NeverTrump crowd, Cruzbots and professionally GOPe, to defend the honor of the much beloved former Senator. The opportunity to bash Trump is simply an ancillary benefit. Conversely, the MAGA community has largely portrayed the rift as if the Presidential critique was part of a larger strategy between the President and Attorney General. If we wait long enough some mysterious master plan will eventually to be discovered. However, the subsequent POTUS tweets and comments do

At the end of a Senate subcommittee hearing on Tuesday morning, someone sitting near Chairman Susan Collins (R-Maine) didn’t switch off a microphone. Collins was recorded discussing the federal budget and President Trump’s lack of familiarity with the details of governing with a colleague — apparently Sen. Jack Reed (R.I.), the ranking Democrat on the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies subcommittee.

BALTIMORE - African American activists have a message for Democrats: If you want to win back the White House, strongly consider a black person on the ticket. On their list are a growing roster of black politicians, notably Sens. Cory Booker, D-N.J. and Kamala Harris, D-Calif., former Attorney General Eric Holder and Deval Patrick, former governor of Massachusetts. Turnout among African Americans in the 2016 presidential election was the smallest in 20 years. It’s a big concern as the NAACP holds its annual convention this week in Baltimore, its first major gathering since the election. Hilary Shelton, head of the NAACP’s

Monday on WISN’s “The Jay Weber Show,” Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) defended special counsel Robert Mueller and his investigation into Russian election interference by saying Mueller was “anything but” a “biased partisan.” A listener asked Ryan a question about why Republicans in Congress are not doing more to defend Trump against “what is becoming an obvious witch-hunt.” Ryan replied, “Remember, Bob Mueller is a Republican, who was appointed by a Republican, who served in the Republican administration, and crossed over — I mean and stayed on until his term ended.” He continued, “I don’t think many people are saying Bob

Sticky-fingered socialist Bernie Sanders is apparently stealing his neighbor´s Washington Post subscription, as any good socialist might do. In perhaps the funniest and most fitting news of the year, WMAL radio host Chris Plante told his audience of a story he heard from friends about the elderly senator. A man living next to Sanders apparently called the Post to complain that he was hardly ever receiving his subscription. After an investigation into the matter, the paying customer realized that it was his neighbor, Senator Sanders, who was stealing the paper right from under his nose. (Snip) First it was reported that

Let’s review a few recent developments. Last week, Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, resigned. This was part of a “White House shakeup” to get the Trump administration back on track. The new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, would fix the White House’s “messaging problem.” Within 24 hours of Scaramucci’s appointment, the president returned to Twitter and unloaded another torrent of political bombshells, including talking about his power to pardon, even as his attorneys were denying that Donald Trump was thinking about pardoning anyone.

President Donald Trump’s dramatic decision to exclude so-called “transgender” people from the military is a direct rejection of the progressives’ revolutionary demand that Americans’ society should be remade to eliminate all civic recognition of the two different-and-complementary male and female sexes. (Tweets) The Wednesday decision was greeted with anger from the left, which had hoped that the military’s 2016 endorsement of the transgender ideology would push the Supreme Court and legislators nationwide to impose and establish the unpopular claim that a person’s changeable choice of “gender” is more legally important than their biological sex. If endorsed by the courts, that
