Giuliani: Trump ‘Judged by a Different Standard’

On Tuesday’s “New Day” on CNN, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani told show co-host Alisyn Camerota that if he had said some of the things current Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump had said during his 2008 bid, he would have been thrown out of the race. According to Giuliani, that stems from a double standard possibly attributed to his role as an entertainer. “He is judged by a different standard,” Giuliani said. “Maybe it’s because of his background on ‘The Apprentice’ as an entertainer and the fact that he’s been a big personality. He almost like speaks in headlines, gets your attention and then a lot of the points he makes are very substantive. But then the headline turns out to be exaggerated.” “For example – from the very beginning, ‘Most of the people coming over are rapists, murders and killers.’ Wrong. Most of the people coming over are good people. In between those good people, there are rapist, murders and killers.” Overall, Giuliani said Trump’s presence in the race was a positive. “I think he’s helping the other candidates get a lot more attention than they otherwise would get,” Giuliani added.

Carson: ‘Height of Hypocrisy’ for the White House to Call on Turkey to Close Its Border with Syria

Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson ripped the Obama White House for it’s call for Turkey to shut down its southern border with Syria while seeming to have little concern over the United States’ own southern border with Mexico. “You know, you look at our border – it is completely porous,” Carson said. “Terrorists can come here also. I mean, I was astonished by how little protection there is and all the drugs that are coming through. So for us to sit there and proclaim sanctimoniously that you should close your border while we haven’t done that to protect the American people seems to me the height of hypocrisy.” Follow Jeff Poor on Twitter @jeff_poor

Christie: Cruz, Rubio Weak on National Security

Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” GOP presidential candidate Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) took aim at two of his competitors, Sens. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Ted Cruz (R-TX), for their stances on national security issues. Speaking from Concord, NH, Christie told co-hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough that like Barack Obama, the country can’t afford to have another inexperienced president like Barack Obama and Christie included Rubio as well as Cruz. “As do Ted Cruz and others in this race who have no experience in governing,” Christie said, and pointed to the two senators’ votes in 2013 against authorizing force in Syria. Scarborough countered and asked if Ted Cruz had made America less safe as well. “Sure he has,” Christie responded. “He went for the easy political vote at a time when it looked like it kind of was a popular thing to do. With all those dead Parisians it doesn’t look so popular anymore.” Christie was then asked to explain that response and how a governor is involved in national security. “I was the United States attorney for seven years,” he said. “Let me tell you something, that next day after September 10, it was personal. The fight against terrorism was personal to me

Ding, Dong – The Godfather Of Global Warming Is Dead!

maurice strong
Paris, COP21 Climate Summit – One of the most dangerous men of the Twentieth Century has just died: and the weird thing is, hardly anyone noticed. His name was Maurice Strong (picture above, on the right), Canadian billionaire, diplomat and UN apparatchik, and though you may not have heard of him, he probably did more to make your world a more expensive, inconvenient, overregulated, hectored, bullied, lied-to, sclerotic, undemocratic place than anyone post Hitler, Stalin and (his personal friend) Mao. He’s the reason, for example, that most of the world’s leaders, 40,000 delegates and their attendant carbon mega-footprint descended here on Paris yesterday in order to talk about magical fairy dust for two weeks and then charge you $1.5 trillion (that’s per year, by the way) for the privilege. He’s the reason that “climate change” is now so heavily embedded within our system of global governance that it is now almost literally impossible for any politician or anyone else whose career depends on the state to admit that’s it not a problem and to argue that there are more important issues in the world, like maybe the terrorism that killed over 130 innocent people just the other week now, where was
