  • Protests Greet Met’s Premiere of ‘Klinghoffer’

    At the Metropolitan Opera’s first performance of John Adams’s “The Death of Klinghoffer” on Monday night, men and women in evening attire walked through a maze of police barricades, while protesters shouted “Shame!” and “Terror is not art!” One demonstrator held aloft a white handkerchief splattered with red. Others, in wheelchairs set up for the occasion, lined Columbus Avenue. Political figures, including former Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, joined a rally, several hundred strong at Lincoln Center, to denounce an opera that has become the object of a charged debate about art, anti-Semitism and politics. But after months of escalating protests,...
  • Bill de Blasio’s Other Party: How the Working Families party took over New York City

    National Review ^ | 01/15/2014 | John Fund
    As recently as 1998, New York State’s Republican party controlled the governorship, a United States Senate seat, and the mayor’s office in Manhattan. Today, it is greatly diminished, with its sole beachhead of influence in the state senate, where it shares a majority with four independent Democrats. In contrast, the Working Families party (WFP), a 15-year-old left-wing, union-fueled group with just 20,000 members, now holds the whip hand over much of the dominant Democratic party in New York — and is already spreading its wings to other states. The WFP not only was a major force behind Bill de Blasio’s...

    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...

    WASHINGTON -- Apparently New York City's Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg whiles away his last hours in the mayor's palace daydreaming. He has been mayor for almost three terms and though his mayorship may not have been as heroic or even as effective as that of Mayor Rudy Giuliani, it has at least kept the city up to Mayor Giuliani's standards of cleanliness, law and order, and an approximation of sense of financial rectitude. So if Bloomberg is no Rudy Giuliani, at least he has done OK up until now. Now his daydreams are taking on the air of delusion. He...

    Come November, there's no way Mika Brzezinski will be pulling the lever for Mitt Romney. But the MSNBC co-host had some sincere praise for the Republican standard-bearer this morning. Expressing frustration with Rudy Giuliani--the latest in a string of Republicans to have offered only a tepid endorsement of Romney--Brzezinski said that when she meets with Mitt and Ann, she comes away "excited," because they're "good people" and a "good family." "What's wrong with these people? It's just ridiculous," a palpably peeved Mika said of Giuliani and others who have emitted only mild praise of Mitt. View the video here.

    Philosophically, you'd think Rudy Giuliani might align more closely with Mitt Romney than with Newt Gingrich. So what's behind Rudy's recent statement that Gingrich could be the stronger candidate? And why did Giuliani go on Morning Joe today to trash Romney as "elitist" and "a man without a core, a man without a substance"? Well, Rudy also reminded viewers that "I ran against him in '07, '08." And as Rich Lowry has observed, "in 2008, the other Republican candidates hated Romney." Just this morning, John Podhoretz tweeted: "Re: Rudy's attacks on Romney today.

    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.

    It’s hard to believe that a whole decade has passed since America came under attack on that fateful morning of September 11th, 2001. Most Americans remember where they were that day. I remember being at home, asleep from working overnight, until one of my brothers woke me up and told me to quickly turn on the TV. I asked him why, and he said that “terrorists were taking over the country.” I remember being so tired and “out of sorts” that I didn’t believe him.

    August 31, 2011 ( - 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...

    Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who is still weighing a presidential bid, said Sunday that the Republican Party should stop focusing on gay marriage and "get the heck out of people's bedrooms." Giuliani, who personally supports civil unions but not same-sex marriage, said that he was against the recent vote in New York to legalize gay marriage in the state. But while he called that decision "wrong," he described it as a "democratic vote" and urged Republicans to move on. "I think that marriage should be between a man and a woman, but I think that the Republican Party...

"Andrew had a fabulous session. It was fabulous. A property-tax cap, ethics reform and, for Democrats, gay marriage," said Powers.

Mitt Romney is second with 15 percent, followed by Sarah Palin (13 percent), Ron Paul (12 percent), and Herman Cain (10 percent).

All that's changed, and therein lies a lesson for those charged with protecting America from Islamist terror.   This year's 461 murders through last Sunday promises the lowest mark since record-keeping began in 1963. Overall crime dropped 11 percent since 2008, with murder down 19 percent. And it's been a while since 2,200 homicides a year was considered the norm.  None of this happened by itself.  If not for the focus, determination, vision and courage of certain men -- and one in particular --...

    Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani has decided not to run for governor next year - but will run for U.S. Senate instead, sources told the Daily News. A source familiar with Giuliani's thinking said the failed presidential candidate has been telling people he plans to run against Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand in 2010 to fill out the remaining two years of Hillary Clinton's term. If elected, the source said, he could use that as a stepping stone to run for President in 2012 - rather than run for re-election to the Senate. A Giuliani spokeswoman downplayed the reports. "Rudy has a...

    Here is video of Rudy Giuliani reacting to the decision to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and other 9/11 co-conspirators in New York. Giuliani called the decision "dangerous and irresponsible" and said "this should be treated as an act of war." Giuliani compared it to "trying the people who attacked us in Pearl Harbor in a Hawaii court, as opposed to dealing with them as warriors who were soldiers at war with us." Giuliani also commented on the Fort Hood terrorist attack, saying, "a week ago we had another Islamic terrorist attack on our soil, and why this administration has trouble...

    WATERTOWN, N.Y. — On a Sunday evening conference call with conservative bloggers — where he was joined by former Dede Scozzafava campaign manager Matt Burns — Rob Ryan, spokesman for NY-23 Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman, said that former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani had recorded a robocall for the campaign. That makes Giuliani one of the small number of Hoffman endorsers to put deeds behind his words, joining former House Majority Leader Dick Armey and former New York Gov. George Pataki, who’d appeared in the district, as well as Fred Thompson, who is speaking at the campaign’s last big...

    Here is video of former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani talking about what he would do to improve Health Care in America. He was first asked about the economy and said that if he were Governor of New York or President, he would cut the Capital Gains Tax to stimulate business activity. He would reduce expenses for businesses to give them room to operate. Giuliani said there is "a point of diminishing returns with taxes." You can only tax so much before you actually begin to lose revenue rather than increase revenue. Giuliani said what Obama is trying to do...

    Here is video of former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani talking to CNN's Campbell Brown last night about a range of political topics, including President Obama and his performance to date. Giuliani said Obama has been much further to the Left than he thought on domestic issues, but feels he has been more centrist on his Foreign Policy. Giuliani believes Obama may have been right to not get too involved in the protests in Iran against the regime of Ahmadinejad. Giuliani also talked about the whole Henry Gates arrest controversy. Giuliani avoided a question about what he thinks about Glenn...

    Here is video of former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani being interviewed by CNN's Wolf Blitzer yesterday. Giuliani said he believes the Obama Presidency "is much worse than I thought." Giuliani talked about the drive for Government Health Care, and also said he did not agree with the legislation defeated yesterday that would have allowed concealed weapons to be carried across state lines. He believes that should be determined by State and Local governments. Giuliani believes that Obama's massive spending is "catastrophic" for America's future. . . . . . (Watch Video)
  • Which Groups of People Have Been ZOTTED from Free Republic

    I've been hearing that some groups of people are not welcome at Free Republic anymore, but I didn't believe what I was hearing because that seems like the complete opposite of "Free". I've heard that supporters of Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, Ron Paul, Rudy Giuliani, John McCain, and more are no longer welcome to post at this site. This site is about uniting people together against the liberal onslaught that is ruining our country and we could use all the help we can get right? Please correct me so I can correct others who have told me that this is...

    Chris Collins NEW YORK Republicans are eyeing a dynamic but little- known upstate businessman and elected official to run for governor next year if Rudy Giuliani declines, The Post has learned. GOP leaders say Erie County Executive Chris Collins, a wealthy, charismatic, conservative-oriented entrepreneur and government reformer is interested. Collins, who won a surprising landslide victory in the heavily Democratic county in 2007, would make a great candidate, they say. "He recently came to see me, and I came away sure he was interested in running for governor," former US Sen. Alfonse D'Amato told The Post. "I think he'd be...

    New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine, a Democrat, is trailing GOP front-runner former Republican U.S. Attorney Chris Christie in two polls out today.

A Strategic Vision poll similarly registered a 54%-36% disapproval rating for the governor.
