GO FORWARD to 01:04!!!!



He starts saying it at around 10:05 am East time. Look at the clock / timer in the vid and skip ahead to then. Like an hour and 4-5 min in.

I added links. Thanks, doc!

Not that we didn't know it is totally rigged, but it is validating to hear the scoundrels say it themselves ...

tell us something we do not know of course it is rigged, it has been that way, when LBJ took office, they are there just for show and tell, the laws and bills are decided long befor they get to the floor house and senate, it is there C span as a smoke and mirror, parlor trick, so you do not see nor know what really goes on, just sit back and watch the show, reminds me of kindergarten, he stole my milk and cookies, wha wha wha, next time they have a debate watch and see, i will not sit down, i will not yield, your time is up, Mr speaker Mr speaker.

I think the context here was that
Lieberman was stating it was rigged,
he was talking about the voting on the
agenda of topics to be gone over in
the lame duck session. In other words,
they were being stonewalled on topics
to discuss. Basically, a takeover of the
chamber agenda.

ques is: taken over by whom
and for what agenda?
Since Lieberman is a Democrat/Independent,
then I would assume this is a
GOP agenda.

Hahaha, I watch this and the first thing that pops in my head
is Homer Simpson saying his classic, "DOH!".
One thing that struck me as a little odd was that it seemed like someone was cycling through the mics and just "happened" to pick that snippit up. Seemed like some one was listening in and wanted that blurb put out there maybe?

Yes, of course, but the shenanigans should go viral and the curtain be pulled back. That is the only way to get these criminals out and restore a sane system. It wasn't all that long ago that we had a semblance of true government. We will get back there and better...

I looked on a bit further and found the topic of wikileaks popped up.

01:55:20 MR. PRESIDENT, ON A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT SUBJECT, AMERICA'S SECRETS ARE NOT WHAT'S AT RISK WITH THE EXPOSURE OF THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF DOCUMENTS OF CLASSIFIED CABLES.
01:55:44 AMERICA'S FRIENDS AND ALLIES ARE AT RISK AND, THEREFORE, AMERICAN'S NATIONAL SECURITY IS AT RISK.
01:55:55 WHEN CLASSIFIED CABLES IDENTIFY CERTAIN PEOPLE THAT HAVE HELPED US AROUND THE WORLD ADVANCE THE INTEREST OF THE FREE WORLD NATIONAL SECURITY AND THE SAFETY OF ALL HUMANKIND, WHEN THOSE PEOPLE ARE EXPOSED, THERE ARE A LOT OF BAD PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT WANT TO GET RID OF THOSE KIND OF PEOPLE.
01:56:25 WHEN SOURCES OF INFORMATION -- I'LL DRESS YOU UP AND TELL YOU EXACTLY WHAT IT IS -- IT'S CALLED INTELLIGENCE.
01:56:35 WHEN SOURCES OF INTELLIGENCE ARE BETRAYED BY BEING MADE PUBLIC, BY THE DISCLOSURE INDISCRIMNANTLY OF THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF CABLES THAT WERE MARKED TOP SECRET OR MARKED SECRET, THEN WHAT WE'VE DONE IS WE'VE STARTED TO SHACKLE OUR ARMS BEHIND OURSELVES IN OUR ABILITY TO DEFEND OURSELVES.
01:57:08 NOW, WHY DO I SAY THAT?
01:57:10 WELL, LOOK AT ALL THE RECENT ATTEMPTS AT A TERRORIST ACT.
01:57:18 WE WERE ABLE TO AVERT THE TERRORIST STRIKING -- TERRORISTS STRIKING BECAUSE WE GOT THE INFORMATION THAT HE WAS GOING TO STRIKE BEFORE HE STRUCK.
01:57:28 AND WHERE DID THAT SOURCE OF INFORMATION COME?
01:57:34 OFTEN THAT SOURCE OF INFORMATION COMES FROM FAR CORNERS OF THE GLOBE BECAUSE WE HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH PEOPLE THAT ARE GIVING US INFORMATION THAT WE THEN TRACK DOWN AND FIND THAT, IN FACT, IT'S TRUE AND STOP THE TERRORISTS FROM DOING THEIR DASTARDLY DEED UPON INNOCENT CITIZENS.
01:58:08 SINCE 2001, IN THE SEPTEMBER 11 BOMBINGS, IN THE SEPTEMBER 11 CRASHES OF THE AIRLINERS, OVER AN OVER AGAIN THE NEWSPAPERS OF THIS COUNTRY HAVE CHRONICLEED TERRORISTS' PLOTS THAT HAVE BEEN THWARTED FOR THE REASON THAT I'VE JUST SAID.
01:58:29 AND NOW ALONG COMES SOMEONE WHO, FOR WHATEVER REASONS OF BEING A MISFIT, WANTS TO DISGOURGE THOUSANDS OF CLASSIFIED CABLES THAT START TO BETRAY OUR SOURCES OFFINGS IN TO PROTECT OURSELVES AND OUR -- AND NOT EVEN NECESSARILY OUR ALLIES, OTHER INNOCENT VICTIMS IN OTHER COUNTRIES THAT WE MAY NOT HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH.
01:59:04 THIS IS THE HEIGHT OF DISHONORING OUR COUNTRY AND OUR PEOPLE AND OF HUMANKIND.
01:59:21 AND IT IS THE HEIGHT OF TRAIT TRAITORRIST ACTIVITY.
01:59:24 MR. PRESIDENT, IT HAS GOT TO STOP.
01:59:28 WE CANNOT CONTINUE TO THWART THESE TERRORISTS' ACTS IF WE DON'T HAVE RELIABLE SOURCES OF INFORMATION IN ORDER TO DISRUPT THE TERRORISTS' PLOT.
01:59:43 AND YOU KNOW WHAT?
01:59:45 THE NEWSPAPERS HAVE CHRONICLED SINCE THE ATTEMPT, FOR EXAMPLE, OF BLOWING UP FEDEX AND U.P.S. -- AND BY THE WAY, THOSE PACKAGES ALSO WERE CARRIED ON COMMERCIAL AIRLINERS WITH PASSENGERS ON THEM.
02:00:02 YOU KNOW WHAT THE NEWSPAPERS HAVE CHRONICLED.
02:00:05 THEY HAVE POINTED OUT HOW THE TERRORIST ORGANIZATIONS ARE CROWING ABOUT HOW LITTLE IT COSTS THEM AND HOW THEY WILL FIND ANOTHER WAY IN ORDER TO DO THIS.
02:00:21 AS THE NEWSPAPERS REPORTED, WE FOUND OUT AND STOPPED THAT PLOT BY LONG DISTANCE SOURCES OF INFORMATION THAT CAME TO US.
02:00:35 TO BETRAY THOSE SOURCES, TO NOW PUT THEIR LIVES IN JEOPARDY BY THE INDISCRIMINATE TURNING OVER TO AN ORGANIZATION CALLED WIKILEAKS THAT SUDDENLY PUTS ALL OF THIS UP ON THE WEB IS THE HEIGHT OF IRRESPONSIBILITY, IS AN ACT AGAINST HUMANITY.
02:01:04 , AND IT HAS TO BE STOPPED.
02:01:05 MR. PRESIDENT, I YIELD THE FLOOR.
02:01:33 A SENATOR: MR. PRESIDENT?

Indeed. Of course, it bugs me that they are pledging allegiance to a mere symbol. They pledge allegiance to the flag? What about allegiance to the People? No, they would rather pledge allegiance to an abstract symbol that has been hijacked and bastardized to the verge of meaninglessness. They pledge allegiance to their little flag lapel pins, meaningless shorthand to ID them as "patriots" regardless of their treasonous actions.

And of course the vote for Lame Duck agenda is rigged. It almost seems like a bout of senility on the part of Lieberman that he even finds this odd enough to comment on.
