Joe Lieberman: New York Times Should Be Investigated For Publishing WikiLeaks Cables (VIDEO)

...he [Joe Lieberman] said that, since WikiLeaks had certainly violated the Espionage Act, it was a real question whether the Times had also done so by accepting it.

via Joe Lieberman: New York Times Should Be Investigated For Publishing WikiLeaks Cables (VIDEO).

Wow, is he ever dumb to think that we can't see his illogic.

He says WikiLeaks is definitely guilty for accepting leaked documents but that he's not sure whether the New York Times is guilty for accepting leaked documents.

How dumb/dishonest is that!

He tries to qualify by saying that the New York Times says it didn't publish everything, but WikiLeaks redacted names too and conversed with the New York Times about what to release/not to release, etc.

Would we have been better off with Joe Lieberman as Vice President over Dick Cheney. At least with Cheney, you know it was about money (oil, stealing other people's resources, etc.) and American Empire. With Joe Lieberman, it's about Zionism.

Let me also point out, which others have probably pointed out elsewhere but I haven't seen it yet, that Julian Assange is not a U.S. citizen. The Espionage Act is American law. If it applies to Julian Assange, then all American law applies to everyone everywhere and the U.S. is the sole sovereign in the world. The Chinese and Russians would not agree with Lieberman though on that.

This guy is a fascist. He's a very dangerous person. Julian Assange's actions help the common people to see the duplicity of the U.S. and it's lying, puppet dictators around the world. If the U.S. hadn't been propping them up, the people in those nations would have been vastly freer. Joe Lieberman though makes everything worse.

There has never been a constitutionally required Declaration of War against Afghanistan or Iraq.

The Espionage Act is about enemies. Who are the enemies where WikiLeaks' leaks are concerned? The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and elsewhere have all been illegal. Who's the enemy of the people? It's not WikiLeaks.

You cannot apply the Espionage Act to illegal wars. Only fascists would seek to do so. That's why Joe Lieberman is doing it. He's a Zionist through-and-through and therefore a racist fascists because everyone knows that Zionist-Israel that Joe Lieberman so supports is utterly racist. It was founded by open racists, such as Theodor Herzl for one. Nothing has change there on that. The Zionists' racist and ethnically bigoted war crimes prove it.

If Lieberman's position is that simply because the documents were classified is enough to trump the war crimes of the U.S., he's much worse than depicted above.

I suggest that the trial of WikiLeaks and/or Julian Assange put the U.S. and its leaders on trial for war crimes.

As Lieberman said, if you don't prosecute criminals, they'll do it again. So much for Barack Obama's oh-so-convenient-and-selective-applied don't-look-back position.

I say prosecute the war criminals. The issue after declaring the unrepentant guilty guilty will be about what to do with them. They need mental help. I say they need spiritual help.


The following should appear at the end of every post:

According to the IRS, "Know the law: Avoid political campaign intervention":

Tax-exempt section 501(c)(3) organizations like churches, universities, and hospitals must follow the law regarding political campaigns. Unfortunately, some don't know the law.

Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are prohibited from participating in any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. The prohibition applies to campaigns at the federal, state and local level.

Violation of this prohibition may result in denial or revocation of tax-exempt status and the imposition of certain excise taxes. Section 501(c)(3) private foundations are subject to additional restrictions.

Political Campaign Intervention

Political campaign intervention includes any activities that favor or oppose one or more candidates for public office. The prohibition extends beyond candidate endorsements.

Contributions to political campaign funds, public statements of support or opposition (verbal or written) made by or on behalf of an organization, and the distribution of materials prepared by others that support or oppose any candidate for public office all violate the prohibition on political campaign intervention.

Factors in determining whether a communication results in political campaign intervention include the following:

  • Whether the statement identifies one or more candidates for a given public office
  • Whether the statement expresses approval or disapproval of one or more candidates' positions and/or actions
  • Whether the statement is delivered close in time to the election
  • Whether the statement makes reference to voting or an election
  • Whether the issue addressed distinguishes candidates for a given office

Many religious organizations believe, as we do, that the above constitutes a violation of the First Amendment of the US Constitution.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

That said, we make the following absolutely clear here:

  • The Real Liberal Christian Church and Christian Commons Project not only do not endorse any candidate for any secular office, we say that Christianity forbids voting in such elections.
  • Furthermore, when we discuss any public-office holder's position, policy, action or inaction, we definitely are not encouraging anyone to vote for that office holder's position.
  • We are not trying to influence secular elections but rather want people to come out from that entire fallen system.
  • When we analyze or discuss what is termed "public policy," we do it entirely from a theological standpoint with an eye to educating professing Christians and those to whom we are openly always proselytizing to convert to authentic Christianity.
  • It is impossible for us to fully evangelize and proselytize without directly discussing the pros and cons of public policy and the positions of secular-office holders, hence the unconstitutionality of the IRS code on the matter.
  • We are not rich and wouldn't be looking for a fight regardless. What we cannot do is compromise our faith (which seeks to harm nobody, quite the contrary).
  • We render unto Caesar what is Caesar's. We render unto God what is God's.
  • When Caesar says to us that unless we shut up about the unrighteousness of Caesar's policies and practices, we will lose the ability of people who donate to us to declare their donations as deductions on their federal and state income-tax returns, we say to Caesar that we cannot shut up while exercising our religion in a very reasonable way.
  • We consider the IRS code on this matter as deliberate economic duress (a form of coercion) and a direct attempt by the federal government to censor dissenting, free political and religious speech.
  • It's not freedom of religion if they tax it.

And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. (Matthew 17:24-26)
