    American Thinker ^ | 11/25/2014 | Carol Brown
    This past week-end on Meet the Press, former NYC Mayor Rudy Guiliani was insulted and smeared by fellow panelist and MSNBC host Michale  Eric Dyson. Dyson went so far as to accuse Guiliani of having a mentality akin to white supremacists. This is all the left has when confronted with the truth, which is exactly what Guiliani provided as he cited crime stats. But Dyson would have none of it. (I wrote about the exchange, here.) Guiliani has continued to try to place facts between the ears of anyone out there who appears allergic to them when he was...

    Down here in the Deep South, calls to bring back the hanging noose are coming from an unlikely source: a 62-year-old, black Republican mayoral candidate in Mississippi's largest city.Long-shot George Lambus acknowledges his inflammatory platform has made some residents of Jackson slam doors in his face. Others walked out of a church where he spoke. Yet he insists his tough stand is welcome in some quarters of a state capital racked by crime, much of it black-on-black.

    Phyllis Chesler saw part of 'The Death of Klinghoffer' and reports there were shouts of protest from the audience There was such a large police presence and so many police barricades that anyone passing by would think that terrorists were at large. There were no terrorists on Broadway—although terrorists would soon be mounting the stage of the Metropolitan Opera. The police were protecting the right of the Opera House to present the Palestine Liberation Organization and their cause as mythically majestic and eternally just.

Just one question: Will it work? According to a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Sunday morning, three-quarters of Republicans and GOP leaning independent voters say they want a party nominee who can defeat President Barack Obama in 2012, even if that person doesn’t...

    Former Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani has decided not to run for the Senate seat held by Kirsten E. Gillibrand, Republicans briefed on his decision said Monday evening. The decision by Mr. Giuliani, 65, leaves Senator Gillibrand — who was appointed to her seat less than a year ago, has never run in a statewide election, and is still unfamiliar to many voters — without a high-profile Republican opponent as she faces election to the seat. As recently as a week ago, a Quinnipiac University poll showed Mr. Giuliani leading Ms. Gillibrand in a hypothetical matchup, 50 percent to 40 percent....

    Subversives for Obama Friday, 26th September 2008 There are two American election campaigns currently running. The first, in the mainstream media, accepts Barack Obama at face value, no questions asked, while it viciously turns over Sarah Palin and her family whom it subjects to lies, smears and character assassination. The second, being conducted in the blogosphere and (with one or two notable exceptions such as the Wall Street Journal) not alluded to at all by the mainstream media, is the site of verbal warfare between Camp Obama and bloggers who are practising journalism as it used to be practised –...

    For the connoisseur of political hypocrisy, the shifting immigration stands of three GOP candidates are a veritable banquet. Rudy Giuliani, Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney have started doing passable impressions of Lou Dobbs. But can you trust a candidate whose record contradicts his campaign rhetoric? (That was a rhetorical question.) The CNN/YouTube debate was a hoot. Romney and Rudy squared off on what’s shaping up to be the defining issue of Campaign 2008 -- with the dignity of a couple of rabid mongooses. Rudy – who wants to “secure the border” (is there anyone, including Hillary, who says they don’t?)...

    Every four years pundits get to swing for the fences. Only the timid split differences and hairs. The pundits worth reading will declare what they see in the very cloudy crystal ball. Here's my take. There are two very separate battles within the fight for the GOP presidential nomination. There is the contest between Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, and Fred Thompson to be the conservative challenger to Rudy Giuliani. And then there is the contest between that challenger and the former New York City mayor. It is Rudy's hope that the race to be his opponent for the Republican nomination...

    We are all fallen, imperfect beings. The news of the federal indictment of Bernie Kerik is a sad moment, a cautionary tale, and an object lesson. Sad, because Kerik rose from the child of a prostitute to “America’s cop”–and this nation loves such tales of success. Cautionary, because it speaks to the fallibility of anointed heroes and the temptations of power. An object lesson, because it highlights the flaws and vulnerabilities of GOP front-runner Rudy Giuliani’s on the issues of corruption and immigration enforcement. Here’s what I wrote back in December 2004 when Kerik was forced to withdraw from consideration...

    National Review ^ | 10/31/2007 | David Klinghoffer
    The Giuliani candidacy has polarized politically conservative Christians and Jews — perhaps less over Rudy’s position on abortion than, more subtly, over a question of emphasis. Who’s right? The Jewish “neoconservatives,” who make up more than half of Giuliani’s star foreign-policy advisory team (Norman Podhoretz, Daniel Pipes, Michael Rubin, Martin Kramer, and David Frum)? Or Christians, like Family Research Council president Tony Perkins, who would not rule out supporting a third party candidate if Giuliani gets the nomination? To adjudicate the dispute, I propose an appeal to the part of the Bible on whose authority Jews (like myself) and Christians...

    Most Republican presidential candidates can brag about attracting followers with their valiant stances on important issues. John McCain’s supporters will point to the senator’s steadfast stance on Iraq as the primary reason they intend to vote for him, as, paradoxically, might Ron Paul’s ardent adherents. Tom Tancredo rallies anti-immigration enthusiasts behind his banner, and Fred Thompson attracts supporters with his understanding of federalism and his consistent conservatism. Rudy Giuliani’s followers support him because they think he can beat Hillary Clinton. In and by itself, the reasoning of Giuliani’s supporters is not illogical. Many people do take into account electability when...

    Glenn Beck's website has an inconsistent interview with Rudy Giulianion illegal immigration. First, Guiliani says illegal immigration isn't illegal. GLENN: Right. But isn't illegal immigration a crime in and of itself? GIULIANI: No. Then Guiliani says it shouldn't be illegal: GLENN: Should it be? GIULIANI: Should it be? No, it shouldn't be because the government wouldn't be able to prosecute it. We couldn't prosecute 12 million people. We have only 2 million people in jail right now for all the crimes that are committed in the country, 2.5 million. If you were to make it a crime, you would...

    Republican 2008 White House front-runner Rudolph Giuliani warned Tuesday it was not in the interest of the United States to help create a Palestinian state that would "support terrorism." In an article in the journal Foreign Affairs, the former New York mayor also said too much emphasis had been placed on Israeli-Palestinian peace talks which he said just brought up the same issues "again and again." Giuliani renamed the US "war on terror" as "the Terrorists' War on US" in his hawkish article in the September/October issue of the magazine, and predicted a long battle against "radical Islamic fascism."

    Like the Olympics, it's a game that's played every four years. The media march out on the field in their ideologically matching blazers and try to convince the GOP to ditch social issues. Their pitch goes something like this: Republican voters are far more moderate than their party's platform. The day of the religious right has come and gone. With pro-life, pro-marriage stands, the party alienates legions of voters who agree with it on taxes, spending and defense. An article in the July 5 Wall Street Journal ("Giuliani Support Hints at Shift") argues, "Mr. Giuliani's lead in the polls -...

    Because I'm convinced that, come November of 2008, Hillary Clinton will be the presidential candidate of the Socialist Party, so I think it's particularly important that the Republicans nominate Rudy Giuliani. I will admit that I have been waiting to see if Fred Thompson was going to toss his hat in the ring, but I finally got sick and tired of waiting. The guy's about 6-foot-5 and probably weighs 280; which doesn't hurt when he's portraying a New York City D.A., but he's simply not cut out to play a coquette. There are other attractive candidates in the GOP, but...

    Slavery was once both legal and immoral, much as abortion is today. The Dred Scott decision was overturned because it was both bad jurisprudence and immoral—just like Roe v. Wade. In supporting the Dred Scott decision, the candidate for president, Stephen Douglas, argued that he didn’t care whether slavery was voted up or voted down. He only cared for the right of the people to decide. Essentially, that’s Rudy Giuliani’s argument with regard to abortion. He is personally opposed to it, but he supports a woman’s right to choose because it is the law of the land. I wonder if...

    Rudolph Giuliani has a huge problem--and so do all other candidates that approach abortion as he does. Their huge problem are both their obviously untenable moral positions on abortion, as well as the huge number of pro-life activists and our many allies. We just don't like equivocation or ambivalence. Jesus Christ said, "A house divided against itself cannot stand." (Matthew 12:25) St. James said, "A double minded man is unstable in all his ways." (James 1:8) It appears that Rudy, and possibly other candidates, are at war with their own consciences over where they will stand on this supreme moral,...

    Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- As the Republican candidates for president head to their second debate tonight, two new polls show Rudy Giuliani's slide continues following several weeks of intense criticism of his position in favor of abortion. The polls also show Fred Thompson moving up and he moves closer to announcing his candidacy. A new Rasmussen poll shows Giuliani leads among likely GOP voters with 25 percent, which is just seven percentage points ahead of Sen. John McCain's 18 percent. Two weeks ago he led McCain by 16 percent in the Rasmussen poll and the 25 percent is the lowest...

    Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- Rudy Giuliani is continuing to slide in the polls as he is plagued by more criticism over his position on abortion. The former New York City mayor has drawn strong opposition because of his pro-abortion views, but recent flaps about supporting taxpayer funding for abortions and donations to Planned Parenthood haven't helped. A new CNN poll shows Giuliani has dropped a large nine percentage points from March to May -- going from 34 percent nationally to just 23 percent. Virtually every other candidate has gained or stayed the same in the poll and benefited from the...

    Thirty-eight percent for Rudy; 16 percent for McCain. On the surface, the latest Gallup Poll of GOP voters is great news for the Giuliani campaign. Mitt Romney scored just 6 percent, less than Fred Thompson and Newt Gingrich (10 percent each) -- two guys who aren't even officially in the race. But the apparent collapse of the McCain candidacy (it's early yet) may end up being a problem for Rudy. Deep distrust of McCain as the designated GOP front-runner has to some extent shielded Rudy Giuliani from the focused opposition of social conservatives. Personally, I know I tried really hard...

    In a typically thorough, fair-minded, well-written article, the Washington Post's Dan Balz examines the indications that despite many predictions, Rudy Giuliani has a serious chance to win the Republican presidential nomination. You might have read a similar though at the time necessarily more speculative analysis six months ago. It seemed to be the rule from 1980 to 2000 that only abortion opponents could win the Republican presidential nomination (just as it seemed to be the rule from 1984 to 2004 that only supporters of abortion rights could win the Democratic presidential nomination). But rules in politics don't always last forever....

    If he goes the distance next year, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney would be the first Mormon ever elected President. What role his religion will play in his bid for the GOP nomination is already being widely discussed. Although former Mayor Rudy Giuliani also could make history, as the first Catholic nominated for President by the Republican Party, the effect of his religion has, to date, been largely ignored. It shouldn't be. Giuliani's Catholicism - and his rejection of some church teachings - could be a significant factor over the long run of the 2008 campaign. Concerns about conflicted Catholic...

    Rudolph W. Giuliani yesterday removed any lingering doubts that he was running for president, and, without mentioning President Bush by name, offered pointed criticism on how the Iraq war has been handled. Mr. Giuliani has behaved like a presidential candidate for months, forming an exploratory committee, raising money, building a campaign staff and making appearances around the country. But until now, he has repeatedly stopped short of a definitive statement of his intentions — even joking about his nondeclarations in recent days. Republican activists and consultants, citing his early withdrawal from the 2000 Senate race, said he needed to put...

    Is there something cyclical, but nevertheless extraordinary, happening in American politics these days? Are we moving from a period of partisan confrontation and division, to one that values consensus and seeks more unity among our public figures? Otherwise, how can we account for the unusual persistence with which moderates like Rudy Guiliani and Senator John McCain are holding their large leads in the Republican primary electorate? Or, the surprising surge of perceived-moderate Senator Barack Obama into second place in the Democratic field?

I've looked over the potential candidates, and on the Republican side, I believe the best, by far, is Rudy Giuliani, who took the first step toward a run, yesterday, with an exploratory committee. (On the Democratic side, the best guy who's been talked about as a Presidential contender is Senator Evan Bayh from Indiana, who truly understands the Islamic threat and is a more moderate Democrat--which is why he'll never get the nomination.)

    Rasmussen Reports ^ | 9/2/05 | Rasmussen Reports
    In hypothetical match-ups for the 2008 Presidential Election, Republicans Rudy Giuliani and John McCain both are essentially even with Democrat Hillary Clinton. A Rasmussen Reports survey finds Giuliani leading Clinton 42% to 39% and McCain ahead of the Democrat 40% to 38%. An earlier survey found Clinton leading Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. The survey highlights a major difficulty facing McCain as he seeks the GOP nomination--he's not very popular in his own party. Just 48% of Republicans have a favorable opinion of McCain while 27% have an unfavorable view. By way of comparison, among Republicans, Giuliani is viewed favorably...

    If the NHL and NHLPA can't work out their labour problems soon, a rival league is in the works. According to the Toronto Star, players are considering a plan to work with former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani and Canadian diplomat Maurice Strong to form the International Hockey Association. The league would reportedly need to raise as much as $5 billion (U.S) to get the league off the ground, according to a plan reviewed by the paper. Ted Saskin, senior director of the NHLPA, said the union has been approached by several different groups proposing alternative options for its members....

    New York Sen. Hillary Clinton is thanking her contributors for ponying up nearly $4 million for her campaign coffers in the first quarter on 2005 - while pretending that her reelection next year is actually in jeopardy. "With your support, we raised $3,958,924!" she told her donors in an e-mail on Monday. "Just as the right wing attack machines have started gearing up to defeat me in 2006, we're sending a strong signal that we will be ready to fight back." True enough, New York State GOPers have launched a "Stop Her Now" campaign, complete with the promise that they'll...

    Governor Rudy? Senator Giuliani? Not anytime soon, according to Giuliani's top political aide, Anthony Carbonetti, who yesterday quashed rumors that the former mayor has designs on any office other than an Oval one. "No, he won't," said Carbonetti, Giuliani's former City Hall chief of staff, to suggestions his boss would oppose Sen. Hillary Clinton or run for governor in 2006.

    ARLINGTON, VA -- Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani today issued the following statement: "We don't need someone who voted against funding our troops during war to take my remarks out of context. Like the President I wholeheartedly support our troops. If John Edwards is looking for someone who is blaming our troops without the facts, he need look no further than his running mate, John Kerry."

    FORMER Mayor Rudy Giuliani will challenge Hillary Rodham Clinton for U.S. Senate in 2006 if, as many suspect, he wants to be president one day. That's the dramatic prediction of one of New York's most senior elected officials, who knows both Giuliani and Clinton well. "Rudy's fundamental dilemma in terms of becoming president is that he holds positions that are unacceptable to his own Republican Party on things like abortion and gay rights and gun control," the senior official told The Post. "Now, if he runs for the Senate and defeats Hillary Clinton, given all the negatives she represents to...

    Although New York's next gubernatorial election is still over three and a half years away (in 2006), Zogby International posed some match-up possibilities to a random sample of residents. The telephone survey of 709 likely voters was conducted from Zogby's headquarters in Utica on April 3-4, 2003, and has a margin of error of +/- 3.8%. Error margins are higher for sub-groups. Attorney General Elliot Spitzer would beat Andrew Cuomo in a Democratic primary, 39% - 28%. When 335 likely voters in a Democratic primary (margin +/- 5.5%) were asked to choose between Spitzer and Cuomo, who withdrew from the...

    The Beach Boys once said that East Coast girls are hip and California Girls are the cutest girls in the world. What that means I donacute;t know, but if true, it could explain why our government has become all screwed up. To be a hip East Coast chick in the 1960acute;s, you had to lose your husband, find feminism and quot;yourself,quot; question authority, answer to no one but yourself, become a hardcore NOW operative and start your own quot;Womenacute;s Studiesquot; program at your local male-dominated college. To be a quot;cutequot; California girl, you had to possess the blonde blue-eyed...
