Federal citizenship is a privilege.

Don't be a federal citizen.

I guess we learn nothing from history

Just when you thought this country was understanding the wrongs it committed in slavery - here we are right back at the same logic. The Bill of Rights was meant to include all people - I mean - if they are endowed by our creator he would have endowed them on all people - Muslims too. This guy has the same ass backwards logic that allowed people to justify the Bill of Rights NOT being extended to slaves.

Citizenship does not grant you these rights - God does.

Oh - but Joe brings in those dollars to EB and Pratt so he is the hero of CT. Yeh for us.

Dont forget - this ahole is not running for re-election - just think of the damage him and Obama can do in a lame duck session(no - that is not an endorsement for Romney - just saying).

How about we strip foreigners of their US citizenship first?

Knowing hidden facts does not make me "anti-Semitic." I have no problem with Jews, their religion or their race. I have a serious problem with people who openly hold loyalty to TWO nations serving in the government of MY nation. A quick look at their records shows they place Israel's national security ABOVE the US, the very reason dual-citizenship was not allowed in this country. Until...

"Attorneys acting for Afroyim took his case to a Washington, DC District Court, which upheld the law. Then his attorneys appealed to the Court of Appeals. This court also upheld the law. The attorneys for Afroyim then moved the case on to the Supreme Court. Here, with Supreme Court Justice Abe Fortas, Lyndon Johnson's former attorney and one of the most powerful Jewish Americans, casting the swing vote, the court voted five to four in favor of Afroyim. The court held that the U.S. government had no right to "rob" Afroyim of his American citizenship!"


This is the article that got my posting privileges revoked:

H.R. 3166: The Enemy Expatriation Act


still in committee H.R. 3166: The Enemy Expatriation Act

Hey Joe...how about all the

Hey Joe...how about all the traitors (including yourself) that backed the MEK and took money from them to give speeches in support of them??? The MEK was designated a terrorist organization up until a month ago by the U.S. State Department(by the way the MEK IS a terrorist organization, but now backed by the U.S.)

You should be ashamed of yourself!! An absolute disgrace!! Check out Glenn Greenwald on this subject. It blows the lid on these traitors and hypocrits.

The real scary thing

Here is not that the fascist senator from Connecticut wants the government to be able to strip citizenship from anyone that joins a list of non-gratis groups. It is the fact that the interviewer, Neal Cavouto
is simply perplexed to understand how any "logical" person can have have a problem with this.I remember going for a Civil Service job in the sixties.You had to sign a document that stated you were never a member of any of the listed groups.One was the Abraham Lincoln Brigade, volunteers from America who fought against the Fascists in Spain.


Leiberman, along with others

in government, are scary people. The Constitution does not once mention "United States Citizen" it uses the word "person." All people, living in the United States, are protected by the United States Constitution, whether or not they are citizens. Therefore, Leiberman's assertion that stripping people of their citizenship denies them due process of law is simply false.

Zion's Super'Visor,

+1. zion has appointed him to be the watch-dog over the U$ legislature & politicians, = that they follow the zionist dictates. Most on DP must have seen the video where Netanyahu addresses the U$ Congress, how the members applauded in unison. He is a nasty man - this demon speaks with a deep growl = ggrrhh

Well if that is the case,

Well if that is the case, then Joe Lieberman should be the first to have his citizenship stripped because we all know to which nation his loyalty lies and it is not the USA.

Among all of the other blatant crimes he any many others in DC have and are committing against the US Constitution, he additionally deserves to be stripped of his titles and charged, tried and convicted for treason.

They used to hang people for less.

Stunned! Day 2

Yesterday I hear Lawrence O'Donnell of MSNBC telling the truth on-air, and now, this morning, I hear a US Senator tell a FOX anchor that being a citizen is a priviledge and anyone associated with a group that our Government says are a bunch of boogiemen can have their citizenship stripped from them. Add in Ben's Reality Check about Romney having a personal and/or financial interest in the voting machines in Ohio, and it's a trio of stuns in just 2 days!

All are stunning to be sure, but CLEARLY, using Lieberman's logic, there are thousands of CIA and private (USA) contractors operating in the middle east, funded by our tax dollars, who should be stripped of their citizenship and labeled terrorists.

Borrowing from a post I created yesterday, I'm not surprised, only because I've lost my capacity to be shocked!

These days I'm surprised only if my worst expectations are NOT fulfilled."


This week, it sure feels like the "waking up" process has shifted into high gear. We can only hope that's the case.

Mr. Lieberman can be defined very simply, in just one word :

Mr. Lieberman can be defined very simply, in just one word :


But of course, it's also very easy to elaborate on him, and how come he is so zealous in redefining the Constitution to best fit his own agenda, as he's been exposed a few times already :


Nice video to keep track in his record.

Thank you for this post, on that.

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

I know

He and several others (McCain, Graham, and Pelosi just to name a few) are traitors. I've been posting all night, which is what happens when you are out of work. lol

I guess you get smarter
