Proving, Once Again, Why Giuliani Was a GREAT Mayor (& Why Bloomberg Isn’t)

By Debbie Schlussel
Remember the good old days when then-New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani gave Yasser Arafat the boot from a New York concert and refused to let him travel to an event in one of the New York City burroughs?
Giuliani ordered the NYPD not to let Arafat go much of anywhere outside of Turtle Bay. He had the cojones to just say no to an international terrorist madman.

Rudy Giuliani:

Then-NYC Mayor Had Guts to Stop Yasser Arafat’s Stateside Escapades

Compare that to current Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s mostly silent reaction and complete inaction, when yesterday and the day before, the loony leaders of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and Venezuela, Hugo Chavez, trotted all around greater Manhattan and the various NYC locales.
Both Arafat and the Ahmadinejad/Chavez twins were in New York for U.N. visits. But Giuliani had the guts, courage, and innovation to use the NYPD to stop Arafat from doing anything beyond his U.N. speech. Where was Bloomberg? Nowhere to be found. He may be good at making money, but as a mayor of America’s most major city, the guy is a joke.
Under Bloomberg’s “leadership,” the two nutcase leaders, Mahmoud and Hugo, were allowed to trot themselves all over the place for interviews with TIME Magazine and CNN’s Anderson Cooper (Ahmadinejad), and speeches at Columbia University (also Ahmadinejad–now cancelled, under pressure from smart alumni and other good Americans), the Mt. Olive Baptist Church (Chavez), and the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art (Chavez).

“Mayor” Michael Bloomberg Meek Around Ahmadinejad, Chavez

Bloomberg allowed these two enemies to all mankind tread all over America’s metropolis, in line with his PC pro-Islamofascist agenda (Bloomberg has allowed extremist Muslims to serve as chaplains in NYC’s jails and appointed other Islamofascists to City Commissions). That’s why Bloomberg will never be a great Mayor. He doesn’t have guts. He doesn’t have dignity. And, above all, he doesn’t have principle.
But for an extramarital affair, Rudolph Giuliani had–and still has–all of those things. If he ran the Big Apple today, Ahmadinejad and Chavez would have been on flights back to Banana Republic Land, long ago.
And that’s why–despite being out of office for almost 5 years, he’ll always be “America’s Mayor.” He may have been Mayor of New York in contemporary times, but when it comes to terrorist madmen and international loons, he took the motto of the Gadsden Flag and many American Revolutionaries very seriously:
Don’t Tread on Me.

How about a GOP ticket with Giuliani and John Bolton.!!!!! Now ,that would be a dynamic duo. That is what we need in this country. Leaders who not only have the guts and vision, but that can articulate US policy and the REASONS for it in no uncertain terms.

Amen to that Debbie. I know that Iím a simple man, but I still canít see how people such as Bloomberg would allow the two terrorist presidents, Chavez & Ahmadinejad to get away with what they did. When any jackass can come into America and disrespect, insult, and threaten us as a nation without one word of response from our President and our national leadership, itís time to worry. If they donít respond to crap like this, how will they respond to real and dangerous threats? Oh, yeah. I already know the answer.

By the way, I think Chavez’ speech was at Cooper Union, not Columbia (unless the local news here in NY got it wrong). Even Clinton thinks Chavez is a real dog……so amazed that people listened and cheered (which is why it has been big news here in NY). If only Chavez’ own consituents were as free as we are….
And I think New Hampshire’s slogan is “Live Free or Die” by the way, but again not sure.
I wish Ahmadinejad would’ve had his speech, someone probably would’ve done something to him and I honestly think it was cancelled because of that. All but the most extreme left-wingers in the large Jewish community here see him as “the next Hitler” and there’s been ads galore here by Jewish organizations of almost every political persuasion calling on people to go to the UN and protest his presence even there.
I think Giuliani would make a decent president, but I have a feeling the South, etc. wouldn’t vote for him in primaries…..
I GOT THAT RIGHT–IT WAS AHMADINEJAD INVITED TO COLUMBIA (NOW CANCELLED) AND CHAVEZ AT COOPER UNION, AS I SPECIFICALLY INDICATED IN THE ENTRY. ON THE NEW HAMPSHIRE THING, YOU ARE RIGHT. IT IS NOW CORRECTED. I GOT THE NEW HAMPSHIRE FLAG MIXED UP WITH THE RATTLESNAKE FLAG USED BY MANY AMERICAN REVOLUTIONAIRES WITH THE “DON’T TREAD ON ME” SLOGAN. THANKS.

Happy New Year, Debbie. What we need most in America, are LEADERS. People who are unafraid to make the RIGHT decisions, regardless of who gets upset. Rudy is that type of LEADER. I hope he follows our present LEADER into the White House in 2008 !!

Not only was it a slap in the face of America to let these two hate-mongers come in to begin with, but to allow them to run around at will is unacceptable. What’s even worse is to let the Hollywood leftist whackos, like Danny Glover, run loose and babble on about how “Chavez is my brother…” and the rest of the usual liberal diatribe. If he’s your brother, than go live in Venezuela with the Caracas Cockroach! Take all the rest of the bleeding heart pussies along with. Needless to say, I haven’t paid money to see a Danny Glover, Tom Cruise, or any other Hollywood Heretic’s movie and don’t see it coming down the pike anytime soon.
On top of that, Chavez promises heating oil for all the poor folks in the Mt. Olive Oyl Buttcrust Church so they don’t freeze this winter but half his country lives in such poverty that it makes the hood look like Rodeo Blvd. To make matters even funnier, these chumps bite into it and actually believe it’ll happen. Obviously they learned nothing from all the blank promises made to them by the Democrats just to get their votes.
Stupid is as stupid does!

When Rudy was my mayor I was proud to be a New Yorker. Mayor Goonbird is a fool who only gets tough with cigarette smokers. Rudy will be the next POTUS. He is the only one who can defeat any DemonRat candidate. He will not bend to the will of the International Left and their Axix of Evil IslamiNazi allies. He will stand and fight all enemies, foreign and domestic.

That’s Axis of Evil. Sorry to offend “sensitive” Liberals and their evil friends.

Chavez cleverness – tough to admit
Two dams had been constructed decades ago – the Guri and Macagua. Chavez just months ago finished the Caruachi dam. Together these three dams currently generate 72% of Venezuela’s electricity.

[ scroll down just past the new schools photos ]
Chavez has now initiated the construction of the capstone – the Tocoma Hydroelectric Dam. This project, which is costing $3 billion dollars, will generate another 2,160 Megawatts when completed. This is equivalent to the consumption of 69,000 barrels of oil per day. Given that Venezuela very heavily subsidizes all domestic oil consumption, anything that reduces oil consumption in Venezuela and allows that oil to be exported is very good news. If oil stays anywhere near $60 per barrel this dam should pay for itself within a few years.
===== Contrast that to the USA where Big Oil and Big Auto lobbies have such a grip on Uncle Sam*s privates that the progress of Electric and alternate fuel cars are held back. How are we moving away from oil dependency?
Only the foreign – born Governor of California is showing any initiative towards a move away from dependency on oil. In spite of the no- foreigner rule, Swartzenagger may become president on a popular groundswell.
Chavez is also building lots of new schools and modern hospitals and clinics. His people are becoming smarter and healthier. Hummm.
Considering that Iran supports the Taliban flattening of schools, I doubt that Mahmoud and Chavez are the good buddies they seem to be at the UN conference. = TG

RINO–What else. No political sense and oblivious to the obvious.. sickening!

The HUGE anti-Ahmadinejad demonstration that day in front of the UN received the most complete media blackout since the Ukraine Famine.

So Debbie Schlussel has high regard for Rudy Giuliani because he refused to let Yasser Arafat who she refers to as an “international terrorist madman” attend a concert in New York and severely restrict his travel. Following this logic I assume Nelson Mandela would also have received such treatment. Both figures were fighting similar struggles against apartheid states that were a law unto themselves, but at least in South Africa unlike in Israel, Black South Africans had the right to return, were allowed to own land and were able to work, unlike Palestinians
