Lieberman To Google: Ban Terrorist Content

HARTFORD, Conn. (CBS Connecticut) – In the wake of news that terror suspect Jose Pimentel was operating a jihadist Blogger site, Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) is urging Google to implement a system that bans terrorist material.

Last week, Lieberman sent a letter to Google CEO Larry Page on behalf of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs that called on Google to ramp up its efforts against terrorist material on the Blogger platform.

Pimentel’s “hate-filled writings” and “bomb-making instruction links” were littered throughout http://www.trueislam1.com, his Google-hosted Blogger site, Lieberman noted. Pimentel has been accused of attempting to plan what’s being described as a “lone wolf” terrorist attack by using pipe bombs.

“As demonstrated by this recent case, Google’s webhosting site, Blogger is being used by violent Islamist extremists to broadcast terrorist content,” he wrote. “Pimentel’s site is just one of the many examples of homegrown terrorists using Google-hosted sites to propagate their violent ideology.”

Lieberman pointed to YouTube’s Community Standards as a model for Blogger to build its policy after. YouTube, which is run by Google, prohibited terrorist content on its servers in September 2008. In November of last year, Google introduced a flag button on the YouTube platform – something that Lieberman has pushed for in hopes of Blogger preventing a future situation similar to the one involving Pimentel.

“I continue to appreciate and commend these important first steps but I am disappointed that Google has not developed a consistent standard throughout its many platforms,” he wrote. “Unlike YouTube’s Community Standards, Blogger’s Content Policy does not expressly ban terrorist content nor does it provide a ‘flag’ feature for such content.”

A Google spokesperson told CBS Connecticut that these issues against terrorist that Lieberman has pointed out are being taken under consideration.

“These are important issues that we take seriously,” the spokesperson said. “Blogger’s content policies prohibit, among other things, dangerous and illegal activities, threats of violence, and encouraging others to take violent action against another person or group of people.”

Pimentel’s site is no longer online. Talking Points Memo reports that the site was still online as of last week.

      And that too, that is where ZioNazis and US will end up

  2. Chaya says:

    I disagree. Let them function on their web sites/blog sites – this way they can be tracked by people pretending to be in agreement with them.

    1. Klaus says:

      Does Lieberman recognize Nick Berg was decapitated at Abu Ghraib? Google search it, folks.

      1. Rplite says:

        Wow… that is some crazy info.and somehow not surprising. That was the most heinous video ever.

  3. HeyHey says:

    Baby-boomers on all side of the isle are rushing to end the nation. As I have suspected. Something in the howdy doody show that brainwashed them. This and McCains bill to lock up Americans without trial. All in the name of fighting terrorism.

    I’m sorry, but its better to die free then a slave to any man

        So I guess you’re writing your comment from afghanistan or Iraq. Maybe you’re in Libya fighting alongside the Al Qieda freedom fighters that our government is supporting.

        Grow up little boy. The world is a cruel and compolicated place. The first casualty of war is the truth. If you think the talking heads on TV are telling you the truth, you’re sadly mistaken. Al Qeida is the sword of the New World Order. Government run intelligence agencies fund them and use them to undermine and destabilize governments that have been targeted for “regime change” and then at the same time use them to terrorize the people in their own countries so they can strip them of all their civil rights and increase their own power and influence.

        But I guess it’s just easier to go along with what they tell you on TV. The bad arabs are going to get you. Be afraid! Be very afraid!

      2. Marks Bff says:

        Mark, “The first casualty of war is the truth.” Maybe you need to take a break from playing Modern Warfare.

    2. Dena says:

      Totally agree. I’m constantly amazed at how williingly Americans give up everything our founders died for. ” Those who are willing to give up essential freedoms for PERCEIVED security will get neither freedom norr security.”

      I;m much more afraid of Lieberman terrorism than any kind coming from foreign countries.

      1. Joe says:

        What are we supposed to do? What are you doing? Posting comments in forums pointing out how “Everyone else” should be doing something? Talk is cheap Dena

    3. JT says:

      Me and Buffalo Bob take offense of that comment, Howdy and Clarabell
      aren’t exactly happy either.

  4. Elemental5 says:

    Leave it to the brain-dead Banocrats!!! Does it (the man) have any idea how many words would have to be “banned”?

    I thought not! The idiot!

  5. TEA Country says:

    I had to read this, and then I had to check the comments to see which way they were going. I am very happy to see the first amendment alive and well and being protected. Free speech and a free press are the most important things we have going.

    Besides, if we ban all that stuff, we will have to work lots harder to arrest the right folks.

    1. Frank C Dobbs says:

      Just be highly aware the government and multitudes of agencies and special interests routinely plant comments to sway opinion, disparage the truth and to make you feel as if you no longer fit in. Big money is flowing into this.

      1. Al Dente says:

        If you’re trying to be clever and monicker yourself as the lead character from _The Treasure of the Sierra Madre_, you get an F. It was Fred C Dobbs, not Frank C Dobbs.

  6. Matthew Dunnyveg says:

    If I were to make a case against the total assimilability of immigrant populations, even after numerous generations, Lieberman could be exhibit A. The freedom to express unpopular ideas is part of the essence of what it means to be an American. What will Mr. Lieberman wish to ban next? “Hate” speech?

    If eternal vigilance against would-be tyrants is the price of liberty, it’s one America appears no longer willing to pay.

  7. John Noonan says:

    What an idiot he is.

    1. Dan says:

      I say we just ban Lieberman and his ilk.

  8. Garr Obo says:

    Other than the First Amendment, I can’t think of a reason to not prohibit these terrorist websites. We are at WAR.

    1. Greg B says:

      If you think Al Queda was behind 9.11 you have drunk the kool aid. Half the members of the 9.11 commission said the commission was a joke or hamstrung. False flag/stand downs are common in history (Pearl Harbor, Gulf of Tonkin).
      Ten years on, the military industrial complex is stronger than ever and we’ve attacked a half dozen sovereigh countries. Meanwhile the US is being converted into a police state where goblins stick their hands down our pants and fondle our women and children at the airport – and now on the roads. Wake up, kool aid drinkers.
      We are at war, all right – our leaders are at war with our freedoms.

      1. ME says:

        *sigh*

        It’s “Useful Idiots” like yourself that make it impossible to “win” wars anymore. You believe any theory that makes the US the bad guys in the vain hope that we could all go Libertarian or Green or whatever fantasy political group you have and the rest of the world — which never actually started a fight, it was a conspiracy! — will become some sort of peaceful commune. Because Bin Laden never wanted a fight, amirite?

      2. cantcunow says:

        Greg B. You are right on!

        and to the replier “me”… wake up and smell the coffee hun…..

      3. Mark says:

        It’s too complicated for many people to figure out. We were the only superpower in the world after the Soviet Union fell. We should be the wealthiest nation with the highest standard of living. Instead our infrastructure is crumbling, our children are receiving sub par educations, we have more people in jail than any other country in the world and we are the greatest debtor nation on the planet.

        Me – you are a useful idiot. You are too simple minded to understand the true nature of geopolitics. Ignorance is bliss. Go back to you make believe news and entertainment on TV. Bet you’re a big football fan. Or maybe American Idol is more your speed. Here’s a suggestion. Try reading a book. Start with The Road to Serfdom and then move on to Tragedy and Hope. Then perhaps you could read The Grand Chessboard. Wrap up your intro to reality with David Rockefeller’s autobiography where he openly admits to working towards turning the US into a socialist nation that is ruled by Bankers and the Global Financial Elite. Maybe you’ll understand the world you live in a little better.

        But I’ll bet Me will be sitting in front of his TV tonight, escaping into the land of liberal Hollywood and it’s pop culture idols.

      4. Baldy Kirby from Atlanta says:

        Then if Al Queda wasn’t behind 9/11….

        Please explain why they consistently take credit for something they did not do?

        I didn’t think you could answer that…

      5. Bob says:

        Shut up, dummy.

    2. Smitty77 says:

      Bang on Gordon!!

    3. jones says:

      those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither liberty nor security.

    4. Baldy Kirby from Atlanta says:

      Oh, DROP DEAD, “Gordon”!

      Take your leftist BS lies and get out of this country.

    5. broccoliobama says:

      Gordon will be a “first-dyer.”

  9. Gordon Wagner says:

    Can we send Lieberman packing? Expel him from the USA and send him to Israel. He looks and sounds far too much like the evil Emperor in Star Wars.

    1. Baldy Kirby from Atlanta says:

    2. broccoliobama says:

      It’s the “Liberal Dunce Hour.”

  10. LIBERTY NOW says:

    Who decides what a terrorist is? Do you have a Ron Paul sign on your yard? Do you pay with cash? Do you talk about the constitution? Do you buy guns ? Do you talk about the bill of rights. Are you a veteran? Are you an American?

  11. SRT8 says:

    While your at it Joe, lets outlaw medical textbooks that provide information about performing abortions and outlaw the teaching of abortion in medical schools.

    Outlaw chemistry textbooks and teaching. Outlaw books and teaching on bacteria. Outlaw the sale of fertilizers. And finally, outlaw Senators from servicing more than one term!

    1. broccoliobama says:

      How bout……………….outlaw SRT8?

      1. Capt. Obvious says:

        All these problems would go away if we just outlawed Jews serving in government. Once that’s done, all sorts of things will improve.

        Until then, the slow rot will continue.

  12. Lee Yarbrough says:

    I consider Westboro Baptist Church folks terrorists so will they be banned also?

    Who’s definition of “terrorist” are we going to use once we start stepping on the First Amendment?

    1. former dem says:

      I consider the DNC a terrorist organization. Ban them?

      1. broccoliobama says:

        former………………….you can only dream…………………

  13. Mark Carlton says:

    1. Free speech. Check into it, Joe.

    2. It’s not a bad idea to know as much as we can about our enemies. I say we let them post whatever they like.

  14. James Stevens says:

    Are they that stupid? If people are putting their blogs out there online and talking about “lone wolf” terrorism and pipe bombs they become laughably easy for authorities to track down and arrest.

    Not only that, but do we know the person/people running trueislam1.com? Are they really who they say they are? What about satire? What about sites focused on Lieberman criticism, do those get taken down? Censoring choice information takes away the fundamental strength of the Internet. Its true wild west nature is what allows it to be most efficient. Lieberman is a shill, and we’ll see where Google decides to draw their line in the sand.

  15. jasperddbgghost says:

    I’d say ban MSNBC but nobody watches them anyways.

  16. Lex says:

    ter·ror·ism /ˈtɛrəˌrɪzəm/
    noun
    1. the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially for POLITICAL purposes.
    2. the state of FEAR and SUBMISSION produced by terrorism or terrorization.
    3. a terroristic method of GOVERNING

    So we need to ban the lamestream media their presstitutes and big government.

  17. roze says:

    He would have made a better Bolshevik.

  18. Peter Pan says:

    Was he talking about himself?

  19. Hobit says:

    Lieberman really wants the button to ban any truth about Israel being disseminated.

    1. broccoliobama says:

      ………..then the anti-Semites show their hate and ignorance…………..

      1. Capt. Obvious says:

        More like knowledge of the truth, and enough bravery to speak of it.
        Being labeled ‘racist’ or ‘anti-Semite is becoming a compliment.’

  20. BillCNC says:

    Lieberman To Google: Ban Terrorist Content

    You cant do that, … it would leave the Tea-Libans without a screeching voice!

  21. James Briggs says:

    This reminds me of Ross Perot’s campaign promise that if he were elected he would send the National Guard door to door in the projects to clean out all of the drugs and criminals.

    That sounded okay to me until I wondered where he would send them after they finished with the projects.

    Perot’s plan was dangerous to all of us, and so is Lieberman’s.

  22. InsectG says:

    The new treason is freedom of speech and reason. If I was in govt right now, say a corrupt Politician who was used to gaming the system for his own riches then I would certainly be afraid of the rapid multiplier effect of communication via the Internet. Yes I would be afraid for my life. Revolutions have been happening overnight in some parts of the world as of late. It may be a repeat of the revolution in France, but in this case where Politicians are dragged into the street and sentenced to cruel and unusual punishment via the enraged populace.

    1. Capt. Obvious says:

      A proper revolution and reset of the constitution is WAY over due.

  23. Vader says:

    Google is not a branch of the U.S. Government. It is not bound by any broad interpretation of the Bill of Rights, which is a restriction only on government, and it can make any rules it wants about what content it chooses to provide. Banning terroristic content strikes me as fairly reasonable, depending of course on whether Google chooses to use a reasonable definition of terrorism. Don’t like their definition? Start using Bing instead. That’s the beauty of private actors like Google and Bing; they can’t shut each other down by force, but only by providing service so superior the other goes out of business. I don’t see that happening soon.

    However, it does trouble me a bit that a government leader is exerting moral pressure on Google to change its content rules. This kind of thing would be better coming from someone not currently associated with the government. That’s not to say Liebermann violated the Bill of Rights; being a senator doesn’t end his right to say what he thinks. It just would have been better if he had not.

    1. aubreyfarmer says:

      The Feds managed to get Wikileaks funding cut dramatically by putting pressure on Pay Pal, Visa and Master Card. Every day it becomes more and more obvious that the plan is to do an end run around our first amendment right of free speech.

      1. Vader says:

        I don’t think there’s really a right to intercept and publish other people’s private communications.

      2. Chaya says:

        While I can understand why Mr. Lieberman would want to do this – keep terrorists from being able to communicate with each other – I believe it would be far more useful to keep them talking so specially-trained agents can monitor them and try to ‘cut them off at the pass’ so to speak if they are planning a terrorist attack.

    2. kathy to says:

      I’m with you. Government cannot restrict free speech, although the founders did not allow obscene free speech. However, a corporation is not the government. If Joe Lieberman proposed legislation and then enforced it, that would be a problem. Suggesting that they do something is not the same as legislating it. Google can restrict whatever they want, and competition will keep them from restricting too much.

  24. Pilot.Dave says:

    Joe’s dementia is really setting in. Besides freedom of speech, how does he think Google is going to do this? We can’t even block those sick guys from kiddie P0RN0 even though it is illegal and everyone of them needs to remain in jail the rest of their lives…

    Now I see why Congress is broken. We have idiots running it.

  25. Brian says:

    Who gets to decide what “terrorist content” is? The government?

    If I show concern over the Patriot Act or the recent Senate NDAA bill, does that imply I’m “anti-government” and thus a potential terrorist whose online content must be banned?

    Lieberman is a self-described socialist. He believes collectivism, to a degree, is good. This shows he either does not understand the moral failings of a system that does not respect private property rights or he is opposed to individuals owning property. Either he’s an idiot or an evil sob. His call for arbitrary censorship fits either model.

    1. Dena says:

      Lieberman is one of “the chosen” who are convinced they have the intellect and moral fortitude to be rulers of the world.

  26. Alex says:

    This guy needs to register as a foreign agent of Israel.

    1. Capt. Obvious says:

      The US Congress is no place for ANY dual citizenship holder.
      Pat Buchanan is right. DC is a wholly owned subsidiary of Israel. No wonder the world isn’t very happy with us..

  27. wordtypist says:

    Dumb idea but what else can you expect from Lieberman? Leaving these sites open would be a major advantage for security folk trying to keep track of all these nuts. And if we ban them who is going to decide which are “terrorist sites” and which are just discussion blogs? It would be enormously expensive and one more step on the way to a totalitarian country.

  28. Alex says:

    Israel was created by terrorists – look up the “Stern Gang” and the “Irgun” and the “King David Hotel bombing.” I wonder if Lieberman will support bombing them?

    1. Chaya says:

      Alex – you mention things that you probably pulled from some Leftists web site without really knowing the details. The British were perhaps one of the worst occupiers of what was called ‘Palestine’ at the time and. I suggest that you do some real research beyond your left-wing sources.

  29. barlow says:

    Google is not the internet, by the way. Absolutely Epic in numb skullery. Liberman doesn’t even know how the internet works, why should he be trying to pass laws on it. Oh, nevermind, this is america. Land of fee, home of the slave.

  30. Mike says:

    Unfortunately, Nazi’s like Liebermann define any comment they don’t like, anything critical of them, as “terrorism”.

    1. Capt. Obvious says:

      He’s actually the opposite of Nazi. He’s Zionist. Americans are SO stupid.
      Made it real easy for der juden to gain control.

  31. joe says:

    The cabal of thieves always want to have their way with us.

  32. Jeff says:

    This is all about Free Speech. After all the gov’t (and their corporate cronies) censor the media and ban books like “America Deceived II”.
    Last link of “America Deceived II” before it is completely censored:
    http://www.amazon.com/America-Deceived-II-Possession-interrogation/dp/1450257437

  33. Grett says:

    If I were Larry Page, I would respond by banning any site promoting Islamic domination. Then you can bet that Lieberman and the Dems would be sending him ANOTHER letter right away saying that Google is discriminating against Islam. 10:1 odds.

  34. Sassan says:

    This is common sense. This is simply about national security in not allowing amateur wanna-bees to get a hold of bomb material. I applaud Senator Lieberman.

    1. Capt. Obvious says:

      You, sir, are an idiot.

    2. nuisance says:

      You and I will be on different sides when this comes to a head. I believe in our Constitution and our right to free speech, freedom of religion, and freedom of the press and will fight to the death those that attempt to take that away.

      1. Chaya says:

        Does freedom of speech include the right to hate speech and outright lies?

  35. Hobit says:

    Larry Page has his own plane hanger at CIA Headquarters.. This is TRUE. Check it out.

    Funding for Google was through. the CIA>

  36. Mark says:

    Clearly no one on this board is familiar with programming. Google could write a string of code very easily and identify just terrorist sites. They are a SEARCH ENGINE after all and they are really quite good at it. As for free speech, the terrorists are the ones who want to create a Islamic world absent any free speech. I wish that your fairy tale world of absolute libertarian purity were possible, but its not…sorry.

    1. nuisance says:

      Well I’m not giving up my freedoms because you’re a moron.

  37. Greg B says:

    THE INTERNET is the last frontier of freedom outside of the human mind. It can’t be medicated, sterilized, or bullied, so it has to be hamstrung. The goblin tyrants who run this planet will brook NO FREE ZONE. There will be not an inch of territory beyond their reach, including, eventually, the space between your ears. They will always find a reason (protecting you) to control and crush. I can only think of one politician who isn’t actively or passively part of the fascist cabal. Any idea who that might be?

  39. Canof Sand says:

    Hey, idiots: Lieberman isn’t calling for legislation. He’s calling for a private company to voluntary enforce a policy for its blog platform that *the same company* enforces on YouTube. If the company CHOOSES to do this, **the First Amendment doesn’t apply**. If you’re going to get concerned about something, it should be about undue government pressure on private companies – but, frankly, this doesn’t sound “undue” at all. It may be debatable what Google should do, but (barring unknown details that change things) there’s absolutely nothing wrong with what Lieberman is calling for. Moreover, the “one man’s terrrorist is another man’s freedom fighter” rhetoric that some of you are spewing is despicable.

    1. Klaus says:

      So Lieberman wants a privately-owned corporation to do the government’s bidding, so as to avoid the Constitutional limits imposed on government. That’s called fascism. I have an idea. Why doesn’t pinko Lieberman show some leadership for once in his life and start his own corporation to do what he wants? Maybe it can be the next Solyndra. Or maybe he can ask his brother-in-crime Senator Corzine to fund the seed money for it stolen from MF Global investors’ private accounts. Lieberman, like Juan McCain, is a traitor to our country and should resign from the Senate immediately, without pension or benefits.

      THINK ABOUT IT

      The internet is now the Tavern bulletin board of old. News papers a no longer privately owned by a publisher but now an industry owned by a hand full of foreigners and controlled by a secret US Ministry of Propaganda. The Internet is the only free flow of information available that crosses all political boundaries. We would not know about this secret law but for the Internet. We all know of the serious efforts Congress and the Government have gone though to stop the Internet and free speech. Even the US Supreme Court has placed a STOP on the Congress and Federal Government with respect to free speech.

      The act of being thankful for our freespeech implies our freedom of speech is given to us as a privileged that can be taken away , thankful to who ? Maybe the soldiers who died and fought for the freedom ? Than i would agree with you.

      You seem to want to lick the boots of those currently in power for letting us have free speech, it’s scary. We are supposed to rule our elected officials as people. Who has the final say to label one a terrorist or gives credence to someone elses claim about anothers suspected terrorist ideology? Whoever has that power under the many new laws will be given more power than is ever needed or historical shown to be safe for the citizens. Power corrupts and Ultimate powers corrupt absolutely , it’s simple accept it , human nature. That’s why America is supposed to be about separation of powers and the power of the individual and his or hers inaliable rights that cannot be taken away.

      The mainstream media and most politicians have always said the terrorists hate our freedoms, and ever since the terrorists attacked, those same Media/Governing officials have taken our freedoms to protect us from terrorism. Now anyone can lie , that includes lying to one’s self. I’d ask every American to do some soul searching about why they are as free as they are, and who gets the credit and who wants them to be slaves or worse.

      War is a sign of failure for those who govern,, all of us are flawed but it’s time to come together. stop fighting on left and right issues and realize if we don’t mature as a nation, we all lose.

    4. CrazyEddy says:

      Sean do you realy believe the ability to criticize one’s government is a “luxury”? It seems to me, as it did to the founders of our nation, that the ability to speak one’s mind is a fundamental right. The ability to live at the expense of others is a luxury.

    5. Larrybud says:

      Actually, me being able to insult the government is a RIGHT, not a luxury.

  53. CommonCents says:

    Imagine that… a Jew trying to -ban- free speech and -control- the internet.

  54. Joey says:

    Yeah The Next thing that Lieberman will do is say Muslims can’t get together in there houses because they might be planning a terrorist attack. Who’s next, Liebermann is just another Z boy who is trying to destroy America. for his favorite land.

    1. Capt. Obvious says:

      Trying? They are doing a heckova job.

  55. DrMaxHathaway says:

    Actually, folks, there’s a lot of bad content on the web that should be banned not just from google, but from the web itself.

    The 1st amendment was meant to provide cover for political speech — not all of the porn and refuse that many of you consume.

    A law banning all media content that exploits or degrades human beings would be a good start.

    The USA is a case study in the abuse of freedom by those who have no positive or productive need for it, because the lack the intelligence to use such freedom wisely and beneficially.

    I personally would be in favor of a system of laws that allocated freedom based on the individual citizen’s ability to use it as demonstrated by aptitude, intelligence and past history of achievement and so on. — That would eliminate the non-productive and mostly abused freedoms many of you abuse today.

  56. gus says:

    Lieberman is obviously a technical illiterate. Can we please stop with the stupidity from congress. It’s like a tsunami of dumb. ENOUGH ALREADY! Of is this just a cynical political ploy in the runup to 2012 elections?

  57. tomsbar says:

    Can you imagine…this guy could have been our Vice President. What’s next, Joe, book burning?

  58. slobo says:

    All of a sudden…Lieberman has turned into a jew! wait a minute…maybe he always was a jew!? Take the terrorists off of the net? How the hell are you going to track them? Lieberman…get out of Dodge! You are too old and stupid now to hold down a government job! What are you now? A nazi? The joooooooooooo’s did it!!! The joooooooooooo’s did it!!!!!!!

    1. Peter Courtenay Stephens says:

      Many of the Jewish members of congress have become nazi’s like Levin and Schumer and leibermann to name just 3.

  59. slobo says:

    GOOGLE…GOEBBLES…pretty close! Sieg Heil Lieberman!

    1. Capt. Obvious says:

      Goebbles would be an improvement. At least he had his people’s best interest at heart. Can’t say that here.

  60. Peter Courtenay stephens says:

    Google should follow Lieberman’s recommendation and ban ec=very thing that has to do with the US Government and especially the white House and the congress as they are both Terrorist entities.

  61. Peter Courtenay Stephens says:

    Google should follow Lieberman’s recommendation and ban every thing that has to do with the US Government and especially the White House and the Congress as they are both Terrorist entities.
    They have been terroriszing the American people for a very long time
    In fact they passed a terrorist assault on Our Constitution today in the Senate.
    Heil Hitler !

  62. kyle says:

    ^Awesome, poignant and true.

  63. j madison says:

    “jews” and the Bill of Rights don’t get along.

  64. tea says:

    LIEBERMAN IS NOW THE SELF APPOINTED MINISTER OF PROPAGANDA

    What happen to the First Amendment. According to the Federal Government Pro-Live people and TEA are terrorist. Has anyone heard about TEA people vanishing?

  65. defecating_heroes says:

    This one’s for you, you Communist b@st@rd. Liberal, Neo-conservative useful idiots and critics of Assembly, and frankly haters of truth and freedom, exist by feeding on the entrepreneurial, middle class.
    Which explains why the nation’s respect and admiration are with the dissidents being victimized by such Zionist apparachiks of the Fed, IMF and World Bank. And with the Anonymous and Wikileaks brigades.
    For they know, proletariat’s bad children and parasites will never admonish the Crony Capitalism feeding the latter’s addictions and narcissism. A special interest needful and earnest of all the hearty, steamy excrement patriots can provide. Sh!t and p!ss on, noble flea-baggers, lest the streets flow with blood.

  66. teaisstronger says:

    IS GLEN BECK AND DRUDGE SITES NEXT JOE?

    Will all readers and posters to Glen Beck and Drudge now be labeled terrorists like the TEA has been Joe. Strange Joe that the Occupy that opened fire on the White House is not in you site?

  67. Jake3.0 says:

    Traitors, Terrorists and Joe Lieberman now all have at least one thing in common. They are also against the First Amendmeent and free speech

  68. teaisstronger says:

    THE DEMOCRATS ARE TRASHING OUR US CONSTITUTION SO THEY NO LONGER HAVE ANY AUTHORITY IN THE EYES OF MEN OR THE WORLD.

    Obama and the whole bunch are now renegade and no longer have any authority over us. The US Constitution gave them their authority and they have trashed our Rule of Law. It matters not if Obama vetoes the Bill, the fact that Congress would pass such a Bill in secret signifies that a nation of over 300 Million people no longer have a legitimate and lawful government.

  69. teaisstronger says:

    OK, NICE JOB BUT WHERE DO YOU GO FROM HERE?

    We must proceed with cold determination. Its time to end this dangerous form of Government that many of the founding fathers warned. I think the logical act would be to transition what we now have back to the original Articles of Confederation. All the tools are still in the Articles to maintain the Rule of Law and restore it to our nation. After a time, we could then transition to a Parliamentary system. I am one of 300 Million people, what do I know?

  70. anontdh says:

    WHICH TERRORISTS?

    Irish Catholics, Irish Protestants, IRA or the British
    ‘who have been killing each other for a century?

  71. Youronlyfriend says:

    come on people, do you honestly think the people who pay Lieberman off don’t do the same to glen beck… classic tactics employed by the enemies of freedom pitting both sides against the middle (us) so no matter which way we go they win and we lose. http://joyofsatan.org/

  72. Chris says:

    Hey Joe, what happens we you or I are declared a terrorist because we support Israel? WE DON”T BAN STUFF. Not in these times, all laws must be considered a weapon that WILL be used by the dirt-bags that want to collapse the Western world.

    1. Capt. Obvious says:

      If you support Israel, you support terrorism, and possibly Satan himself.

  73. Momo says:

    Isn’t Lieberman one of the major proponents of the Internet “kill switch” legislation that the ruling-class keep floating out there?

    I trust these bureaucrats and their OSTENTATIOUS PRETEXTS not one single inch.

    They are ineffectual at problem-solving and all-too effectual at thwarting free society.

  74. Buck O'Fama says:

    Joe…..seriously bro….what are you doing over there. Dump those DNC dipsticks and move over here. Your party is an ever present knife in Israels back, the United States back and pretty much any ally we ever had since 1945.

    Remember Joey, at the end of the day, IF you are DNC you will be viewed as a traitor no matter how fervent you spoke out the day before. 2012, it’s anybody but you, take the leap Joey.

  75. Riquin says:

    Ok Ok Commenters – Please be nice to Lieberman — He just forgot to take his medication ¡!!!

  76. Evil Warlord says:

    As Most Evil Warlord and King Of Jews, I hereby declare Joe Lieberman and all of his descendants stripped of their Jewiness for all time for being a chicken and a weasel.

    1. Capt. Obvious says:

      LOL. I thought bieng Jew was being a chicken, and weasel.

  77. Bob Hamilton says:

    Does that include the Bush/Cheney terrorists, the two biggest terrorists this country ever dealt with?

    1. Baldy Kirby from Atlanta says:

      Oh, Bob, give the BS up – no one buys these lies anymore.

      Your momma swallows.

  78. Brad says:

    The only true form of peace is anarchy… the only way anarchy can thrive is if man adopts the non aggression principle at the heart of his moral compass.

  79. RM says:

    Joe Lieberman, the senator from Tel Aviv, Israel, is the real hate monger and terrorist. Google should ban him. How many deaths of Arabs and Muslims has he cheered for. Probably in the millions. Terrorists like Lieberman belong in jail for life.

    1. Chaya says:

      RM – you’re an idiot…

      1. Capt. Obvious says:

        Talk about the pot calling the kettle….

  80. robert g says:

    A bill like that would shut down C-SPAN. Since congress is the biggest source of terror to the American people we have.

  81. Jasonn says:

    What’s next Joe? Gonna start burning books like the Anarchist’s Cookbook? Then what?

  82. MarxistBuster says:

    Lieberman is a terrorist to freedom. He needs to censor himself, not Google.

  83. Bob Dobbs says:

    The only sane response for Google is to remove the political terrorist Lieberman’s website and campaign sites from their search index. Searches for “Lieberman” will instead go directly to his “Porker of the Month” award article on the Citizens Against Government Waste site.

  84. Cory says:

    The better idea is to ban LIEBERMAN from the U.S. and send him to Israel. HE is their #1 representative in Congress. Connecticut was smart enough to evict him from congress at one time; so he ran as an independent and there’s NO DOUBT WHATSOEVER that the election was RIGGED. The Israelis and the Non-Federal Reserve Bank which is OWNED by 13 rich elite European Zionist (satanist) families, the big 5 zionist banks that are desecrating our nation, all the news media, and have their dual-Israeli citizens (loyal only to Israel) placed at the highest levels of EVERY federal agency, the Pentagon, State Dept, think-tanks, etc. , NEED WAR-MONGER Lieberman to KEEP HEAPING TAXPAYER MONEY ON THE WAR MACHINE. Add McCain, Levin, and Lindsey Graham to the TRAITORS. They just passed a bill with 60 other senators to send Americans to prison camps without a trial. Add THAT to dual-Israeli CHERTOFF who WROTE the UNPatriot Act. Either we STOP the traitors or within a year most Americans will be in prison camps.

  85. Kit03 says:

    Though I don’t like if the government forces anyone or any organization to limit free speech. That fact of the matter is that Google could choose to limit it. People can put limits on free speech just no the federal government. Work places do it all the time. In fact I think it is an obligation. I will stop someone who tries to use profanity or inappropriate speech around my kids. Why shouldn’t google limit certain things unless they truly see no problem with it. I believe we use the right to free speech as an excuse to not do anything when we know something is wrong.

  86. JAQUEBAUER says:

    LIEBERMAN has descended into the Gestapo ranks……..but he is following the leader Obama in his quest to suspend our constitution. A blind man could see it coming. Internet controls, search controls, library controls, broadcasting controls. Soon, “the night of the long knives” will be here

  87. A. Whistleblower says:

    Read the book, “Psychological Warfare And The New World Order”, by Servando Gonzalez for a better understanding of why guys like Lieberman want to kill our Constitution. They hate us. Their fake humility is entirely bogus. Their smiles are as temporary as their campaign posters.

    Haven’t you noticed that nearly every law they write will harm the public in some way?

    Their hatred is written into their tax laws, their regulation of everything we do, and the pitfalls and traps they write into their laws that take away the money that Americans used to save for the future.

    Interest rates are nearly zero in order to stop everyone from earning money on bank deposits; tax rates, fines and penalties go higher to destroy our savings. Now they even force us to buy insurance we don’t want or need, while they demand we pay for every illegal war they want us to fight. They terrorize us with the I.R.S. and the rest of the alphabet soup agencies they create to control the public. America is a conquered nation, federally-occupied by a hostile, enemy government.

    They want to kill off 80% of the world’s population, including us. The Fukushima radiation fallout hitting the West Coast is as strong as it was 9 months ago. Cancer has suddenly appeared in young, healthy people all over the place and mainstream news is not reporting any of this. And “our government” claims it is safe while the public is slowly dying off from prolonged raidation exposure.

    Learn about “Project Paperclip”, a covert operation to rescue Nazi leaders and hide them in America, some even worked in government agencies, and how East German Stazi helped shape “Homeland Security” into what it became today.

    Still don’t believe they can do this? Just Google “Operation Mockingbird” and learn why you don’t know. Google “Operation Northwoods”, “Agenda 21”, and “Operation Gladio”, to see what kind of people you had as leaders in the past, and why the ones we have now are worse.

  88. Ernie says:

    And who determines what constitutes ‘terrorist content’? Is that people who are against the TSA feel-ups at airports? Is that 2nd amendment supporters? Is that people who express their faith openly? Who makes the that call – Google?!

  89. Cory says:

    Why aren’t comments for Nov 30 being posted?

  90. CrazyEddy says:

    Why is it that posters like Mark, and Marksbff whoever that may be, are not willint to show a “reply” button? Do you suppose that they’re above the fray and that their comments are therefore unquestionable by the commoners?

  91. GEORGE says:

    WHAT A TRUE IDIOT!

  92. Ripley says:

    Lieberman has done many great things for his country. Unfortunately, that country is Israel.

  93. Ripley says:

    Lieberman has done many great things for his country. Unfortunately, his country is Israel.

  94. really?lmao says:

    the real problem is that these people that have been in office sometimes for generations believe the people are here to serve them and with good reason, since the people never seem to say no. In either election or outright revolt. The population has already been stripped of any strength in urban areas and basically will do what they are told as long as the internet works and their favorite show is still playing.

  95. thomas jefferson says:

    would someone PLEASE throw this piece of trash along with Hitlery, Newt, Paulsen, Rice,Bush, Cheney, McCain, Obama and SO many more into Reikers Island for crimes against humanity and treason? PLEASE- they are ALL criminals

  96. thomas jefferson says:

    Leiberman= TRAITOR
    Hitlery= TRAITOR
    Obama= TRAITOR
    Bush SR AND MONKEY BOY jr= TRAITOR
    McCain= TRAITOR
    Gingrich=TRAITOR
    RON PAUL= American Patriot and Hero

    1. Baldy Kirby from Atlanta says:

      Ron Paul supporters – FDR idiots

  97. akbar says:

    Someone need to ban him from speaking.

  98. Tony says:

    So, freedom of speech only applies to what you want to hear?

  99. really?lmao says:

    BREAKING NEWS!
    The Republic is dead.
    sold out for a s.u.v. and a new t.v.
    enjoy your democracy suckers.

  100. AingealCaithim says:

    I agree 100% with Lieberman! DO NOT ALLOW ANY LIBERALS who are part of Obamas Terroristic Socialist Regime make any posts any where,
    Heck don’t let them speak on TV even, Shut them up completely!

    But you know Lieberman is a ass because he would allow Occupy say and do what they want.
    And that is to destroy America..

    Each time a liberal opens their mouth is to attack, threaten anyone not liberal or socialists… Their actions and threats ARE TERRORISTIC, but if we defend ourselves we are the bad ones…

    Time to take OUR America back ….

  101. MaryMaryQuiteContrary says:

    The People to Google: Ban Lieberman Content

  102. broccoliobama says:

    Some of you brilliant libs think the 1st Amendment gives you the right to shout fire in a crowded theatre……………………..or have you kiddies not lived long enough to hear about that?

  103. Chris Counselman says:

    The freedom of speech is a God given right and it is our governments responsibility to defend it as well as all other rights.

    Lets get rid of these self serving power hungry elites.

  104. Steve says:

    Exactly who and how will it be determined if something is of terrorist content?

  105. Search Injun says:

    Ban terrorist content?

    So we’ll no longer be able to ‘google’ the following text strings:

    William Ayers
    Bernardine Dohrn
    Barack Obama

  106. nuisance says:

    It’ll be very easy to say a site is a “terrorist” site and block it if they do this. Then they can come take you, and hold you indefinitely. You people are playing with fire.

  107. Mike S says:

    I would like to recommend that we Ban Lieberman from holding any government post.
