Buh-Bye, Joe Lieberman: Good Riddance to Man Who Created DHS, Destroyed Customs, Secret Service; Farrakhan Lover, IslamoPanderer

By Debbie Schlussel

Much of Washington is abuzz over Joe Lieberman’s announcement, today, that he will not seek re-election.  To that, I say, buh-bye, Joe, and don’t let the door hit you on the way out.  Unlike most of the ignorant pack conservatives who like Lieberman because he supported American boys dying in Iraq to hand over the country to Iran’s Shi’ites, I actually know the Lieberman record.  And it’s nauseating.  Lieberman”s a fraud who pandered to Jew-hater Louis Farrakhan and liberal Hollywood, after once being against both.  It took the liberal Washington Post and the late Tim Russert to call Lieberfraud out:

Lieberman Retires: So Long, Chump

Lieberman’s 180 turns on almost every issue are sickening, though the Farrakhan pandering to get Black votes as a VP candidate was the worst. Second worst was the fact that Lieberman put HAMAS-fundraising cretins like unindicted terrorist co-conspirator CAIR Action Network and Jew-hating scumbags like Jim Zogby on the map in Washington, where they’d been previously verboten. Lieberman convinced then-Special Assistant to the President George Stephanopoulos to get President Clinton to attend the openly pro-HAMAS/Hezbollah Arab American Institute dinner, the first time any American President had attended an Arab or Muslim event. You know, all in the name of “diversity” and “fairness.” I wrote about all of this and more reservations about Joe Lieberman, back in 2000.

Then, there’s Lieberman’s creation of the Department of Homeland Security, as a knee-jerk reaction to 9/11.

Instead of fixing the problems at the INS and reinforcing two terrific law enforcement agencies–the U.S. Customs Service and the U.S. Secret Service–which were successful in stopping terrorist money-laundering and weapons-smuggling through Operation Greenquest and other operations, Lieberman helped dismantle them through the Homeland Security reorganization. Today, there is no U.S. Customs Service, but there is an aimless, bloated agency called ICE, which doesn’t enforce immigration law and barely enforces customs law. And, thanks to Lieberman, we have the largest bureaucracy and most expensive boondoggle of an agency with DHS.

That’s the Lieberman legacy.

Although he originally ran for the U.S. Senate from Connecticut, as the conservative choice over liberal Republican Lowell Weicker, Lieberman has ultimately betrayed the late William F. Buckley and other conservatives who got him elected. His ambition won out over any principles he claimed to espouse. For instance, Lieberman wasn’t just pro-choice. He was pro-partial birth abortion. And he can write his political epitaph with his compromise and surrender of everything he ever claimed to stand for.

When Al Gore picked him as his VP nominee, a number of Jews took pride and many people told me I should do the same, because the man shares with me his status as an observant Jew in America. To them then, I said three letters: B-F-D. Big Somethin’ Deal.

And more than a decade later, nothing has changed. Joe Lieberman is retiring? B-F-D.

And good riddance. Buh-bye, chump. With fellow co-religionists like Joe Lieberman, who needs enemies?

Bravo! Buh-bye Leiberweinie!

How can we miss you if you don’t go away?

This tool ought to have learned from how the Dems treated him AFTER he was a VP Nominee. Dope.

I never have pride for identity politics. You must have the same values and character if you want pride from me. I have no interest in what your religion or colour is.

(Sadly, DS is too right about the Iraq war. Savage warned of this in The Enemy Within and now we know it has come to fruition).

I like Joe Lieberman for a lot of my own reasons, but remain equally critical of many of his shortcomings. I loved observing how he was never liberal ENOUGH for the partisan Democrats. He was never pro-Arab ENOUGH for the AADC. He was never pro-choice ENOUGH for NOW and Planned Parenthood.

Apparently, Joe couldn’t grow his foreskin back. Moreover, he didn’t want to and made that very clear. They couldn’t STAND it!

While you may be glad he’s leaving office, you might also be glad that Joe didn’t become another “Senator for life” like Ted Kennedy. I’m sick of “Senators for life”. I question whether Scott Brown could ever have gotten elected if Ted Kennedy had mentored a replacement and retired gracefully.

Ya know, back in 2004, I was astounded when Joe addressed the AADC in Detroit. He was running for President at the time. Wes Clark had addressed the AADC and presented the most pro-Israel “peace plan” of all the candidates at the time. Clark was roundly applauded. Joe Lieberman then astounded me by giving a speech proposing the most pro-Arab “peace plan” of all the speakers. Too bad nobody in the audience heard the speech. They were all booing him the whole time and paid no attention to him. They openly ignored the fact that Joe Lieberman had just put forth the most pro-Arab policy speech of any Democratic Party candidate to address that conference. Clearly they did not appreciate the favors Joe had done for them during the Clinton years.

So indeed, I understand your criticism of his policy preferences, Debbie. No question about that. I share many of those views with you. But that’s what I love about Joe Lieberman. No matter where he stands on the issues, he is always too Jewish for his worst critics.

Joe Lieberman was an independent voice who always took a stand on important issues before routinely voting in lockstep with the rest of the liberals. They’ll replace him with a loyal Democrat in Connecticut, and nobody will know the difference – except there will be a whole lot less whining and attention seeking.

I’m more concerned with Kent Conrad retiring. We will have the opportunity to turn the entire ND Congressional delegation from Democrat to Republican in a period of two years. Hopefully Cornhusker Kickback Nelson will follow suit.

Brian R. on January 19, 2011 at 5:44 pm

Buh bye Jumpin Joe. We never really knew where you stood… but we always you stood where it benefitted YOU best and no one else.

As goes Israel, so goes the World... on January 19, 2011 at 5:46 pm

I’ve paid so little attention to Lieberman forever that I wasn’t even aware of the fairykahn connection. What a pair of boobs they are. I did feel he was always a useful idiot of the left from the word go. This exchange from youtube was excellent. Excellent post.

Thanks a lot for the mess at DHS, especially ICE.

Mike on January 19, 2011 at 6:35 pm

You are so right about DHS. Only in the federal government can you go from two agencies (an Immigration Service and a Customs Service) to SIX and call it “consolidation”. DHS has done nothing to make America safer and has considerably weakened criminal enforcement of international money laundering, smuggling, fraud, munitions and technology smuggling. Nobody inside our outside of the government has any idea which agency is responsible for immigration and customs now that you have CBP Operations, CBP Border Patrol, CBP Air & Marine, ICE ERO, ICE HSI, and CIS all stepping all stepping on each others toes.

I never understood how a self-proclaimed “Orthodox Jew” could be so rabidly pro-abortion. Maybe his Judaism was about as genuine as the rest of his miserable self.

Red Ryder on January 20, 2011 at 9:37 am

He was a fraud, one of the most repellant in American history. But he always got away with it. I suspect people, particularly on the right were extremely reluctant to criticize him to any degree for fear of being labeled anti-semitic. His act was to vote with the liberal democrats 99.9% of the time, then propose some meaningless “conservative” legislation that never went anywhere and couldn’t go anywhere, and then bask in moral superiority. And it worked. He got away with his antics year in, year out. To put himself over as an observant jew and a believer in partial birth abortion takes some skill. I will give him that.
The irony is that the thing that probably finished his career was his vote against the public option of ObamaCare, the one decent thing he ever did.

I haven’t read through all the Comments yet, so I don’t know if anyone else has referenced this, but we can also thank this scumbag for Obamacare becoming law: when we needed only ONE vote to stop it in its tracks (and therefore, effectively kill it, for good) on the (first) Cloture vote — and many Conservatives were counting on Lieberman’s vote to BE that vote (since, in classic Lieberman fashion, he’d been posturing on both sides, wavering in his nasal orations on a daily basis)the scumbag, once again, betrayed us (I, for one, was NOT surprised: my ONLY regret was that I hadn’t placed a million-dollar bet on it, beforehand!). So thank you, asshole, for that — and as Debbie says, don’t let the door hit your dirtbag ass on the way out — in fact — are you gone yet?? WHY are you STILL here? — See ya!

Jew (formerly) from Queens (aka Mark) on January 20, 2011 at 10:50 am

I am shocked at how harsh people are about Lieberman! Lieberman did give the benefit of doubt to people who didn’t deserve it, but most politicians do; indeed, it can be difficult to avoid, so in that sense most of Congress are “chumps.”

I’ve read some accounts calling JL a dullard, others a wit; I knew him as a man of purposeful understatement: To the everyday Washington question, “What do you do?”, he answered me, “Oh, I have a job on the Hill.”

Everything a politician does has to be looked at in context as well as through absolutes. After 9-11 something had to be done to reinvigorate domestic security; Lieberman helped do that. Customs law is enforced, and as far as I know it isn’t his fault that the concentration is more upon terrorism than upon illegals. True, I didn’t want to see him as Vice-President, or even President; to me, the biggest “strike” against him is his association with Al Gore.

So I’m not su

Solomon2 on January 20, 2011 at 10:52 am

The problem is that there isn’t a concentration on either terrorists or illegals.

Little Al on January 20, 2011 at 12:30 pm

We are always being told that Lieberman is pro-Israel. I knew he was a flaming liberal, I did not know he was a sell-out to his own people. Sickening.
I read somewhere they are considering him for a cabinet post. These people never go away, they just shed their skin.

Bill on January 20, 2011 at 4:11 pm

Debbie, excellent reporting, as usual.

As punishment, Lieberman should be made to work at ICE.

Unfortunately, with the dismantling of Customs and the subsequent creation of ICE, ICE has not really taken up the slack and enforced Customs-based laws. For example, International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) was an area solidly enforced by Customs. As ICE does not have the expertise to conduct these high level investigations, now DEA is doing ITAR enforcement and investigations. Immigration-based investigations are also being abandoned by ICE; CBP is starting to do alien trafficking and enslavement investigations along with the FBI, and the Citizenship and Immigration Service is now conducting fraud investigations.

King David on January 20, 2011 at 8:26 pm

    king are you saying that ICE don’t have a mission and that CBP are getting criminal investigators; do you know something, do share.

    ramon on January 21, 2011 at 1:39 am

It’s about time. Lieberman was too good at playing on expectations, while hiding the reality of what he was actually doing.

Daniel on January 20, 2011 at 10:36 pm

Goodbye ICE/HSI, welcome to the CBP Investigation division.

Steve on January 21, 2011 at 1:50 am


I hope you’re not an example of an HSI investigator. No offense, but your English is horrible.

To answer your question, yes CBP has criminal investigators; in fact CBP has had them for quite a while. ICE still has a mission–the prosecution/adjudication, transportation, detention, and housing of people who are in the country illegally.

King David on January 21, 2011 at 6:48 am

I am sooo happy to see Joe LIEbermann go. This corrupt tool needs to be stipped of his pensions and have to suffer Obamacare like the rest of us.

Keith in Seattle on January 21, 2011 at 3:59 pm

i never liked joe because i thought he was a traitor to our republic and israel.why do jews elect such people?

BRUCE on April 27, 2012 at 3:54 pm

I can tell you from my own experience that I have never seen such a governmental failure as I have found in both DHS, ICE, CBP and USCIS. Our Immigration failures have been a great testament to Senators Lieberman and McCain. Two of the worthless idiots I’ve come to know and who are responsible for creating this monumental failure called DHS. Thanks to them we neither have control of our borders, our laws, or the one stop shop the idiots promised in this experience. But, you know what’s worst is that now you have over 200 thousands employees without specialization and a shit load of bureaucrats without the courage or integrity of serving the public good and an agency costing the public tax payer billions without real homeland security. What a farce and a FRAUD!
