Is this really all that surprising? Conservatives were asked to pin their hopes on Joe Lieberman sticking to his guns? That's like taking the Japanese High School All-stars of American-style football in a straight up bet against the 2009 New Orleans Saints. Did anyone really think Joe Lieberman was going to go to the mat against the Obama, Reid, Pelosi, and SEIU machine?

Yes, it's easy for me to sit here and point fingers at Lieberman for not exhibiting leadership or courage but isn't that what he's there for? Oh, sorry. Forgive that momentarily lapse. I am still chuckling at the notion.

THE HILL reports that not only has Lieberman caved to the Democrats but he is now groveling after the fact:
Sen. Joe Lieberman (Conn.) told Democratic colleagues at the White House this afternoon that he regretted creating tension within their conference during the healthcare debate.

Lieberman, a Democrat-turned-Independent who still caucuses with his former party, stopped short of apologizing. But he told colleagues that he is empathetic to the heartburn he caused.
Yes, the far left bloggers went after Lieberman's wife but at what point does fear in the face of intimidation take a back seat to principle?

For some reason, this video of Van Jones from February 11, 2009 came to mind. WARNING: the word A**hole is used with reckless abandon. Shortly after where this video cuts off, Jones makes reference to determining which "two or three" Senators need to have "really bad days".


From the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, the man who lit the fuse for the modern day Tea Party movement got fired up again. This time he dukes it out with Steve Liesman. Santelli is sounding the alarm as loudly as he can and justifiably so. Liesman is either playing a role or has put a firewall between himself and reality that is impenetrable.

FCC Diversity Czar Mark Lloyd has apparently been sufficiently agitated enough to speak out against his accusers with lies in response to facts (and video) those accusers have been exposing. It could be time for Glenn Beck to start soliciting Lloyd to call the red phone.

Yesterday in a speech for the Media Access Project, Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chief Diversity Officer Mark Lloyd claimed to refute numerous what he called “exaggerations and distortions” of a wide range of his thoughts, positions and policy prescriptions from what he called a “right-wing smear campaign.” What Lloyd did was offer numerous falsehoods and denials about things that are undeniably true.

For example, Lloyd has insisted that a "right-wing smear campaign" was "distorting [his] views about the First Amendment" when in fact, in his 2006 book "Prologue to a Farce," Lloyd plainly made clear his view that the freedoms of speech and press were "all too often an exaggeration" and that "the purpose of free speech is warped to protect global corporations and block rules that would promote democratic governance."
The culture of the left revealed again and again and again. They spew lies and deny they said them even when presented to them in cold hard evidential form. Yet, as in the case of climate change, they accuse those who so much as question them of being "deniers" even when caught manipulating data and calling for destruction of emails.

Brent Bozell released a statement about Lloyd's claims that he is the victim of a "smear campaign".

Last week, Allegory said the oldest email in climagegate is ten years old. He even repeated the mantra, almost as if he needed to in order to convince himself while hoping to beat it into the general public's psyche.

He's done it again but in order to know it, you'd have to be reading British news sources. TIMES ONLINE reports:
Mr Gore, speaking at the Copenhagen climate change summit, stated the latest research showed that the Arctic could be completely ice-free in five years.

In his speech, Mr Gore told the conference: “These figures are fresh. Some of the models suggest to Dr [Wieslav] Maslowski that there is a 75 per cent chance that the entire north polar ice cap, during the summer months, could be completely ice-free within five to seven years.”
That claim was quickly debunked. The man who Allegory was allegedly citing lowered the boom shortly thereafter.
“It’s unclear to me how this figure was arrived at,” Dr Maslowski said. “I would never try to estimate likelihood at anything as exact as this.”

Mr Gore’s office later admitted that the 75 per cent figure was one used by Dr Maslowksi as a “ballpark figure” several years ago in a conversation with Mr Gore.
The bigger issue here is the lack of coverage. Notice this story is from a British publication. The U.S. media once again has been conspicuously and blatantly absent.



I have maintained for some time that if there was a Winston Churchill award, three of the men I would nominate are interim president of Honduras Roberto Micheletti, Czechoslovakia president Vaclav Klaus, and Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Something tells me Martin Bashir doesn't view Arpaio's work as all that noble however. Rather than Arpaio being portrayed as he is - someone who is enforcing the law while being bullied by the Federal government, Bashir plays up to Arpaio's prisoners' cries of victimhood.

The true underdog story here is Arpaio v. Napolitano. But in true liberal fashion, Bashir creates a straw underdog and sides with the prisoners.

Pathetically biased but Arapaio holds his own anyway.


This one is pretty amazing. A division of the Department of Energy in South Carolin apparently has an employee that's been taking notice of Climategate since the emails from East Anglia University were released on November 19th. It also seems that the DOE has taken a bit of interest in this employee's interest in making it a topic of conversation in the office.

WATTS UP WITH THAT received an email from an alleged employee of the Savannah River Site (SRS), which is under the Department of Energy. Here is an excerpt from the inter-office letter sent to approximately 8000 employees at the SRS:
“December 14, 2009

DOE Litigation Hold Notice

DOE-SR has received a “Litigation Hold Notice” from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) General Council and the DOE Office of Inspector General regarding the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia in England. Accordingly, they are requesting that SRNS, SRR and other Site contractors locate and preserve all documents, records, data, correspondence, notes, and other materials, whether official or unofficial, original or duplicative, drafts or final versions, partial or complete that may relate to the global warming, including, but not limited to, the contract files, any related correspondence files, and any records, including emails or other correspondence, notes, documents, or other material related to this contract, regardless of its location or medium on which it is stored. In other words, please preserve any and all documents relevant to “global warming, the Climate Research Unit at he University of East Anglia In England, and/or climate change science.”
This is extremely interesting. Why would the DOE take such an interest in squashing climategate talk?

Interestingly, it might be quite simple. WUWT puts forth an extremely viable possibility at the end of his post.
Steve McIntyre points out that Dr. Jones got funding from DOE (of which SRS is part of). The different pieces connect pretty well and I don’t have a reason to doubt this memo sent via email today. – Anthony
McIntyre is one of the unsung heroes in this whole scandal. Truly an underdog story.
