  • Who for Secretary of State?

    11/27/2016 5:48:29 PM PST · by Kaslin · 87 replies ^ | November 27, 2016 | Robert Charles
    No doubt Rudi Guiliani, a staunch loyalist and the face of our grieving Nation on 9/11, would make an excellent Secretary of State. That said, he is more Richard Armitage than Colin Powell, more cut to the chase than the 35-year military man, more maverick than mollifier. Mitt Romney? Steady mollifier, a proven manager-in-chief, turn-key source for dispassionate counsel. But is that what the Trump/Pence Administration is hunting, as they prepare to remake America’s Foreign Policy? Or is the best choice General Keane, General Kelly, Senator Corker? Maybe. Maybe not. Comes now a new name, General David Petreaus. Here...

    Republicans close to Donald Trump are planning an “intervention” aimed at resetting his campaign amid a political firestorm that has ensnared the controversial presidential nominee, according to a published report. NBC News said former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, along with Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, are among the Trump allies who want to convince Trump to shift his tactics. The report comes after Trump lashed out at a Gold-Star family critical of his position on Muslim immigration and went on to decline to endorse House Speaker Paul Ryan for re-election. Donald Trump...
  • Giuliani: ‘There’s a Concerted Effort to Paint Our Police Officers as Brutal and Racist’

    Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) reacted on New York’s AM 970’s “The Cats Roundtable” to the Dallas shootings of police officers by criticizing those who have tried “paint our police officers as brutal and racist.” “Whenever one police officer is killed, it’s like a shot at all of us, because they’re the people who protect us, they’re the people who put their lives on the line every day they get dressed up, and they may not come home that night,” Giuliani told host John Catsimatidis. “And to lose so many of them at once, in a slaughter...

    Rudy Giuliani on Wednesday slammed Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton, saying she helped to create the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). "I mean, Hillary Clinton could be considered a founding member of ISIS," the former mayor of New York City told Bill O'Reilly on Fox News on Wednesday night. Giuliani said Clinton had her chance to do something about the terror group when she was secretary of State, but said she helped to create ISIS by "being part of an administration that withdrew from Iraq." "By being part of an administration that let Maliki run Iraq ... into...

    The American Thinker ^ | 2-28-15 | Lloyd Marcus
    A week or so ago, the MSM wanted Rudy Giuliani boiled in oil for daring to question Obama's love for America. They were shocked and outraged. How dare Rudy be so rude to Obama? They ran to Republicans for comments, hoping they would throw Rudy under the bus. As I watched the MSM go nuts over Rudy's “rudeness”, I thought, give me a break. This man (Obama) just unlawfully took over the internet. Obama refuses to acknowledge the radical Islamic Holy War and slaughter of Christians. ISIS publicly raped a three-year-old girl. Women are forced to divorce their husbands to...

    “This is your work that Rudy is talking about!” So emailed a friend of mine on Saturday morning, sending me a link to the Drudge Report, which led with a scandalous New York Daily News article apoplectic and incredulous that Rudy Giuliani could launch the hysterical, Neanderthal, McCarthyite claim that our president, Barack Obama, had been influenced as a young man by a literal communist. I quickly read the piece and nodded to myself. Not only did Rudy have the communist right, but he even had Obama’s exact age (nine) right when he was first introduced to the communist.
  • Patriotism, Giuliani and Ron Fournier’s Credibility Problem (busted!)

    For years the National Journal’s Ron Fournier has held himself up as America’s non-partisan truth-teller, as a man of conscience who will always tell it like it is. To hear Fournier tell it, he is above partisanship, political gamesmanship, and small ball. Integrity is Fournier’s currency, and blasting shallow, partisan hypocrites is his brand. What to make, then, of Fournier’s glaring, highly-partisan hypocrisy and dishonesty in his latest moral crusade — this one to use former-New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani as a club against the entire Republican Party? For two days now, all over Twitter and cable television, Fournier has...
  • Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz calls out Giuliani for 'offensive' Obama comments

    The Starbucks (SBUX) CEO called out former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani for questioning President Obama's "love" for his country. "As an American, I find Rudy Giuliani's vicious comments about President Obama 'not loving America' to be profoundly offensive to both the President and the Office," Schultz said in a statement. Giuliani caused a political stir this week with his remarks about Obama at a dinner event featuring Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, in a speech first reported by Politico. He said he didn't believe Obama "loves America."

    New York Mayor Bill de Blasio on Sunday admonished former mayor Rudy Giuliani for his repeated recent comments that "responsibility is on the black community" for reducing the necessity of police officers in their communities. "I think he fundamentally misunderstands the reality," said de Blasio on ABC's This Week. "There is a problem here. There is a rift here that has to be overcome. You cannot look at the incident in Missouri; another incident in Cleveland, Ohio; and another incident in New York City all happening in the space of weeks and act like there's not a problem."

    The man who once hired New York City mayoral hopeful Joe Lhota as his deputy recently detailed the stakes involved in the race for Gracie Mansion. Rudolph W. Giuliani told local conservatives that “We get one chance to get it right,” by electing his Republican protégé. “And if we get it wrong,” America’s mayor added, “you know what can happen. Bill de Blasio creates a sense of fear about what can happen to this city, and the fear is real. This city very easily could become another Chicago or Detroit or a combination of Chicago or Detroit.” Giuliani observed that...

    Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani says responsibility for the Occupy Wall Street movement rests squarely on the shoulders of President Obama. "This is a very dangerous movement, and it's ironic it's happening under a president who promised to unify us," Giuliani said. "Barack Obama owns the Occupy Wall Street movement, it would not have happened but for his class warfare." The Occupy Wall Street protests broke out in cities all over the country shortly after president Obama called for tax hikes on the wealthiest Americans.

    Rudy Giuliani says he's actually "more likely" to run for president if Sarah Palin does: In an interview on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight," Giuliani, who dropped out of the 2008 Republican presidential primary, said running against Palin for the 2012 GOP nomination would show him as a moderate Republican. "The more Republicans in which I can show a contrast, probably the better chance, the better chance that I have," Giuliani told CNN's Piers Morgan in an interview set to air at 9 pm. ET Monday.

    "Confident that he'd have a chance to win, Rudy Giuliani is rounding up his top political advisers for a possible 2012 presidential run, sources tell Page Six. Sources say the tough-talking former mayor "thinks the Republican race will be populated with far-right candidates like Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin and Mike Huckabee, and there's opportunity for a moderate candidate with a background in national security." Giuliani has even scheduled a trip to New Hampshire for next month to meet with constituents in the state that failed him in January 2008, when he placed fourth in the Republican presidential primary.

    I have never understood the Sarah Palin attraction. Sorry. I just don’t I am a die-hard conservative, but Sarah Palin does not do it for me. Never did. When she was first announced as John McCain’s running mate, I cringed, but then reluctantly understood. This was a political “Hail Mary” pass for the McCain campaign. Honestly, what could the poor man do from where he stood in the polls and in the modern American environment in which he was nominated? Answer: apparently little, aside from dumbing himself down to the political environment of the times—i.e., try to match the idiocy...

Rathke’s currently on a cross-country book tour. Rathke, a pioneer of the so-called welfare rights movement that aims to get Americans on welfare, devotes an entire chapter of his book to what he calls “The ‘Maximum Eligible Participation’ Solution.” It is a strategy for...

    A new poll released Tuesday shows Gov. David Paterson slumping to the lowest job approval and favorability ratings since he took office almost a year ago. The Siena College Research Institute also looked at potential 2010 election matchups and found the Democrat trailing Republican Rudy Giuliani — 51% to 36% — despite a 2-to-1 enrollment advantage for Democrats in New York. They were in a dead heat a month ago. The poll shows Democratic Attorney General Andrew Cuomo leading Paterson 51 to 38% in another possible contest. Neither Mr. Giuliani nor Mr. Cuomo have said they will challenge Mr. Paterson...

Meanwhile: The former New York mayor goes with the same line on Fox News. “God forbid somebody would do some reporting on Barack Obama's use of drugs.” Watch video here.
