Cheney: Lieberman Loss ‘Disturbing’ Because al Qaeda Is ‘Betting They Can Break The Will of The American People’

Think Progress.org
Excerpt:
yeah right DickAs the Mideast sits on the brink of regional war, Vice President Dick Cheney spent his time yesterday holding a teleconference to discuss the outcome of the Democratic Senate primary in Connecticut.

Cheney said that to “purge a man like Joe Lieberman” was “of concern, especially over the issue of Joe’s support with respect to national efforts in the global war on terror.” He explained:

The thing that’s partly disturbing about it is the fact that, the standpoint of our adversaries, if you will, in this conflict, and the al Qaeda types, they clearly are betting on the proposition that ultimately they can break the will of the American people in terms of our ability to stay in the fight and complete the task.

H.L.s Take
Is there any more proof needed that Lieberman was a dyed in the wool republican. When Dick Cheney starts going to bat for Democrats something is wrong. Karl Rove has also offered to help poor old Joe out (see below)

Get Ready, here it comes.

Terror ‘may force freedom curbs’

BBC
Excerpt:
John Reid from the home officeThe UK might have to modify its freedoms in the short term in order to prevent their “misuse and abuse” by terrorists, John Reid has said.
He conceded that was never an easy request, but it was up to everyone to ask: “What price our security, at what cost can we preserve our freedoms?”

H.Ls Take:
Patrick Henry answered that question 230 years ago. Live free or die.

This story is brought to your by George W. Bush.

Bombing Near Iraq Shrine Leaves 35 Dead

NY Daily News
Excerpt:
BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) — A suicide bomber detonated a belt of explosives Thursday near a highly revered Shiite shrine in southern Iraq, killing at least 35 people and injuring 122, an official said.

Prime Minister Nouri al-Mailiki, a Shiite, denounced the bombing as a “barbaric massacre conducted by Takfiris (Sunni extremists) and Saddamists who are seeking to inflame sectarian” passions. A statement by the collective Shiite leadership also issued a similar condemnation.
A Sunni insurgent group, Jamaat Jund al-Sahaba, or Soldiers of the Prophet’s Companions, claimed responsibility for the bombing in an Internet posting. It warned Shiites to stop killing unarmed Sunnis, “otherwise wait for such operations that will shake your regions like earthquakes.”


Karl Rove To Help Liebermans Independent Campaign

Posted in H.L. News, Main Blog (All Posts) on August 10th, 2006 11:24 am by HL

Joe you are a Whore’s Whore why don’t you just pack up your stuff leave now, and you can start your new job with AIPAC on Monday.

George Stephanopoulos: Can Karl help Joe?

ABC News
Excerpt:
Joe Lieberman RepublicanAccording to a close Lieberman adviser, the President’s political guru, Karl Rove, has reached out to the Lieberman camp with a message straight from the Oval Office: “The boss wants to help. Whatever we can do, we will do.”
But in a year where even some Republican candidates are running away from the President on the campaign trail, does this offer have any value to Lieberman? Still smarting from all that coverage of “the kiss” at last year’s State of the Union, the Lieberman camp isn’t looking for an explicit endorsement. That could create more problems than it solves.

H.L.s Take
The story goes on to say that Rove may help Lieberman by not allowing the weak republican candidate on the ticket to be replaced, but wouldn’t that help Lamont. Lieberman will syphon more Republican votes then Democrat votes. Now that the Democrats that voted for Lieberman see what a punk he is, they will come back home and vote for Lamont.


New Registration Rules Stir Voter Debate in Ohio

Posted in H.L. News, Main Blog (All Posts) on August 10th, 2006 11:07 am by HL

The Republicans stole the election in Ohio in 2004, so of course the thing to do is to make new voting registration laws that make it harder for poor people, (especially black) to vote.

New Registration Rules Stir Voter Debate in Ohio

NY Times
Excerpt:

CLEVELAND For Tony Minor, the pastor of the Community of Faith Assembly in a run-down section of East Cleveland, Ohio new voter registration rules have meant spending two extra hours a day collecting half as many registration cards from new voters as he did in past years.

Republicans say the new rules are needed to prevent fraud, but Democrats say they are making it much harder to register the poor.

In the last year, six states have passed such restrictions, and in three states, including Ohio, civic groups have filed lawsuits, arguing that the rules disproportionately affect poor neighborhoods.

But nowhere have the rules been as fiercely debated as here, partly because they are being administered by J. Kenneth Blackwell, the secretary of state and the Republican candidate in one of the most closely watched governors races in the country, a contest that will be affected by the voter registration rules. Mr. Blackwell did not write the law, but he has been accused of imposing regulations that are more restrictive than was intended.

H.L.s Take
Yep, everyone knows that the poor people are going to try to steal the vote for the democrats this year. Good thing Mr. Blackwell, (the reason Bush is still in the White House) is being extra careful to make sure that does not happen


They Were Going to Bring the Bombs in Carry on Baggage????

Posted in H.L. News, Main Blog (All Posts) on August 10th, 2006 7:52 am by HL

LONDON – British authorities said Thursday they had thwarted a terrorist plot to simultaneously blow up several aircraft heading to the U.S. using explosives smuggled in carry-on luggage.

H.L.s Take
Question: Why would they try to bring explosives in carry on luggage? When the carry on luggage is so throughly screened, and checked baggage isn’t screened at all.


Breaking News: Michael Chertoff Still Has a Job.

Posted in H.L. News, Main Blog (All Posts) on August 10th, 2006 6:35 am by HL

Chertoff is saying the plot is “Suggestive” of Al Qaida, now I know it is Bullshi*t.

Chertoff: Plot ‘suggestive’ of al-Qaida

AP
Excerpt
Why does this man still have a job?WASHINGTON – The terror scheme disrupted in London is “suggestive of an al-Qaida plot,” the Bush administration said Thursday as it issued its highest terrorism alert ever for commercial flights from Britain to the United States and raised the threat level for all domestic and international flights.
Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said there was no indication of plotting in the United States but said officials cannot assume that the terror operation in Britain had been completely thwarted

H.L.s Take
Sniff, Sniff…smell that, its Republican fear. Now they have something to talk about other then how they are about to get their asses kicked in the upcoming elections. They think this will get them the elections back, but people are wise to this BS now. Sorry guys no sale, I’m not scared.
We all knew something like this was coming. Bush can’t pull another real 9/11, he is lucky if he ends up getting away with the last one. But they can sure “Thwart” another terrorist attempt and raise the fear level anytime they want. Why does Chertoff still have a job? Isn’t he the guy who deliberately screwed New Orleans?


Time to Ratchet up The Fear.

Posted in H.L. News, Main Blog (All Posts) on August 10th, 2006 6:23 am by HL

The Israelis are getting their asses kicked, Lieberman losses his election, The war party is starting to look vulnerable, its an election year, They want to start trouble in Iran, so you know what that means.

Time for Another Thwarted Terrorist Attack

Time to crank up the fear again, but will it work this time??? Here are the details.

British police thwart aircraft bomb plot

AP
Excerpt
Officials raised security to its highest level in Britain and banned carry-on luggage on all trans-Atlantic flights

H.L.s Take
All this will serve to do is have “Homeland Insecurity” Ban all carry on luggage from now on. Even though its the checked baggage that doesn’t get screened. “Oh my god they tried to smuggle in a bomb on carry on baggage!!! Lets ban it.” Now the airlines can lose everyones luggage, so you see everyone wins.
