    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani “fundamentally misunderstands the reality,” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said today on “This Week” in response to Giuliani’s recent comments focusing on violence within African-American communities, rather than questions over police interactions with minorities that have sparked nationwide protests. “I think he fundamentally misunderstands the reality,” de Blasio told ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos in his first television interview since a New York grand jury decided this week not to indict police officers in the July death of Eric Garner in Staten Island. “We’re trying to bring police and community together. There is...

    After days of nation-wide protesting and rioting over the grand jury decision to not indict former Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani said on Sunday that prosecutors shouldn't have tried to indict him in front of a grand jury in the first place. Doing so, according to Giuliani, was political theater. "I don't see how this case normally would even have been brought to a grand jury," said Giuliani, a former prosecutor, on Fox News Sunday. "This is the kind of case—had it not had the racial overtones and the national publicity—where a prosecutor...

    Former New York mayor Rudolph Giuliani Sunday poopoohed the idea of a federal civil rights investigation of former Ferguson, Missouri police officer Darren Wilson, noting that Attorney General Eric Holder would merely be reviewing evidence that has already been rejected by a Ferguson grand jury. Appearing on Fox News Sunday, Giuliani made a funny YEEKS face before noting that “had it not had the racial overtones and the national publicity,” the case against Wilson — who shot and killed the unarmed Michael Brown during an altercation in August — would not even have been brought to a grand jury. He...

    But I must return to my overall point that Giuliani is correct about the problem of black-on-black crime. I have to admit that my major eye-opening experience regarding this serious problem came only just recently. I sat down to do a TV interview with former New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, who was defending the NYPD's controversial crime-fighting tactic of "stop and frisk." That's when Kelly told me that over 90 percent of murder victims in New York City are African-American, and the person who pulled the trigger is almost always African-American. You may not like what Giuliani said...

They are killing each other. And the racial arsonists, who enjoyed last night, this was their day of glory."

    WASHINGTON -- Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) on Sunday criticized what he described as lopsided coverage of the situation in Ferguson, Missouri, calling on the media to stop focusing on racially disproportionate police forces and pay more attention to black people killing one another.

    President Barack Obama came into office lacking basic executive skills, and after six years in office has shown he does not have natural leadership capabilities to manage the country, said former Republican Mayor of New York City Rudy Giuliani. "He's not cut out to be an executive. He doesn't have either the background and experience or the natural skills of an executive," Giuliani told Fox News' "America's Newsroom" on Friday. "There is nothing in this man's background to suggest that he could run the most complicated organization in the world." Giuliani said that when Obama took office, he hoped he...

So in 2010, Avlon co-founded the “No Labels” movement, funded by liberal donors and assigned the mission of helping Democrats destroy the Tea Party. And if Avlon’s constant smearing of conservatives as “winguts” damaged the Republican Party, so what? Nobody involved in “No Labels”...

    In January, Paul will retire from Congress. A decade ago, this would have signaled the effective end of antiwar conservatism as a meaningful political force. Today Paul leaves behind an entire wing of the Republican Party sympathetic to his views, some of whom identify explicitly as “Ron Paul Republicans,” while some do not. Justin Amash, a freshman Republican from Michigan, has already emerged as a Paul successor of sorts in the House. Like Paul, he is a constitutional stickler, refusing to vote for bills that contradict his oath to uphold the Constitution. He has pressed for an end to Bush’s...

    When Mitt Romney strode across the the platform Friday evening and took his place behind a podium in front of the largest crowd he's drawn this year, he sounded familiar stump speech themes of bipartisanship and economic recovery. But the parade of high-profile surrogates who opened for the candidate fixated on another, more explosive issue — one with a particular power to both animate conservatives, and frighten Romney's senior staff. For about 60 minutes before Romney took the stage, Topic A was Libya. Ever since terrorists stormed the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi in September — killing four Americans, including the...

I mean, the defense of the president is overwhelming.” Giuliani simply did not believe that if the Obama...

The Northeast, he predicts, could be the place to find a leader who balances the ticket. Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey, he says, would be excellent. Or, if Republicans were looking to Florida, freshman Sen. Marco Rubio, “a good guy, would obviously be very helpful.” Those two names, I say, are obvious. Graham smiles and floats another: Rudy Giuliani, the former New York mayor. “I know it would create problems on the social side,” he...

    Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, speaking for his fellow Republicans ten years after the September 11th attacks, denounced President Barack Obama's handling of national security on Saturday. Giuliani, giving the party's weekly address, notably blasted Obama's decision to withdraw some 33,000 US troops from Afghanistan by September 2012 and bring home all combat forces by 2014. "Perhaps the most dangerous impulse we've developed since September 11 is impatience demonstrated by the calls to put our armed forces on timetables," said the former mayor, hailed for his take-charge response to the attacks. ...And he blasted "the inappropriate decision-making and...

    A Fox News Poll unveiled late Thursday revealed that Gov. Rick Perry of Texas held a solid lead over former Gov. Mitt Romney of Massachusetts in the race for the Republican presidential nomination. (snip) When other candidates -- including former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani -- were added to the mix, Perry remained in the lead. Both Palin and Giuliani have left the door open to running for the Republican presidential nomination. Perry led that scenario with 26 percent followed by Romney with 18 percent. Palin took third with 8 percent followed by...

    August 31, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Many Americans have been shocked by reports about a recent pro-pedophilia conference in Baltimore in which psychiatrists and other mental health professionals, representing institutions like Harvard and Johns Hopkins, sought to present pedophilia in a sympathetic and even positive light. But why should this surprise us? Academic articles in scholarly journals have been presenting pedophilia in a sympathetic light for years, and, as Matthew Cullinan Hoffman noted, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) released a report in 1998 “claiming that the ‘negative potential’ of adult sex with children was ‘overstated’ and that ‘the vast majority of...

    The White House is now defending some of its talking points over how it will mark the tenth anniversary of September 11th, namely by minimizing references to Al Qaeda in an effort to show the terror group is increasingly less relevant. A former staffer of Vice President Dick Cheney spoke out against the move, saying “I think the fact that you would actually instruct government officials to speak differently about 9/11 simply based on where they’re standing is not just insulting to American audiences and to foreign audiences, but again I think its a little bit of a window into...

    One of New York's best-known Republicans is calling on pres idential hopeful Rick Perry to choose Rudy Giuliani as his running mate for next year's election. Former state GOP Chairman William Powers, a longtime Giuliani friend and a key player in his first mayoral election in 1993, told The Post that such a move by Perry could deliver key swing states like New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Ohio to the Republicans. "He'd be the best No. 2 anybody in the world could pick," said Powers, who has a longstanding relationship with leading Texas Republicans like Karl Rove, former President George W....

    I did some research for my interview with Karl Rove for tonight’s ON THE RECORD at 10pm and I was surprised at all the recent articles about Karl Rove and Governor Palin. Apparently the other day he made a statement about whether she would be running or not — or whether he thought she would run or something like that — and the media went wild. He doesn’t know if she is running – only she does (and probably her family.) Anyone who cover politics or is fascinated by politics or recognizes the importance of politics, wants to know who...

    Rick Perry has counted on the staunch support of Texas conservatives during his two decades of statewide triumphs in Texas. He’s an anti-tax, anti-spending, anti-regulation, anti-Washington stalwart. Richard A. Viguerie, chairman of ConservativeHQ.com and a leader on the right since the days of Ronald Reagan, called Perry a “committed conservative” whose presidential announcement “brought a wave of relief to conservatives.” Then why are some conservative bloggers and activists warning others on the political right about a Perry presidential candidacy? “Before Republicans start salivating too heavily, it is important to examine Perry closely,” says conservative talk-show host David Zublick. “His conservative...
