Rudy Giuliani is Right

This article first appeared in Eagle Rising.


This past week, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani told a conservative audience that in his view, President Obama does not love America. Of course, a firestorm erupted from the left. I mean, doesn't Obama close all his speeches with, "God bless America"? Undeterred, Giuliani has refused to apologize, and he has affirmed the statement. He is correct.

We should have all figured this out back during the 2008 campaign when all these associations that Obama had with Reverend Jeremiah, "God damn America" Wright, Bill Ayres, Bernadine Dohrn, Frank Marshall Davis, and Khalid Rashidi came out-not to mention Obama's being influenced by Saul Alinsky. Sadly, it failed to matter with enough voters and here we are 6 years and a re-election later.

But Obama's record has continued to grow. Once he became president, he went on his famous international apology tour reciting all of America's historical "misdeeds" against our international partners. Not only has he failed miserably to stand up to America's most dangerous adversaries, he has treated our friends with disdain, most notably Israel. Yes, he authorized and oversaw the killing of Usama bin Laden once our intelligence services discovered where he was holed up, but in virtually every other facet of the war on terror he has drawn down. He refused to leave a residual force in Iraq because he couldn't make a simple status of forces agreement with the Iraqis. As a result, a country that had been secured by the Surge under George W Bush has descended into horror thanks to ISIS. And how does Obama react to acts of terror? The four Jews murdered in a Paris deli were just victims of a "random attack". No mention of their religion as the reason they were singled out. Twenty-one Egyptian Christians beheaded in Libya? They were just "Egyptian citizens". (Remember "workplace violence"?) In response to the recent horrors,  he gives a talk about getting off our high horse because of what Christians did in the Crusades and Inquisition. He adds that segregation and slavery were sometimes supported in the name of Jesus Christ. (Perhaps by some misguided fools, but they were opposed and ended in the name of Jesus Christ.)

As to Iran and their nuke program, Obama and John Kerry are making Neville Chamberlain proud as they literally get on their knees and beg to make an agreement. The way they treat Israel, it calls into serious question as to whether they care if that country is wiped off the map.

As for our national sovereignty, he has encouraged millions more illegal aliens to flock to our border where they can now merrily surrender to Border Patrol officers and be admitted. He has turned the DHS under Janet Napolitano and Jeh Johnson into little more than a social service agency for illegal aliens, and now Johnson talks blithely this week about "giving Muslims a voice", hardly a part of his job description.

Giuliani is spot on in his assessment of Obama. We have a president who does not love this country. He promised to fundamentally transform America, and he is well on his way to doing just that. By the time he leaves office, America may resemble Austria without the Alps and gingerbread villages. To quote Mark Levin, one wonders why he would want to fundamentally transform something he loves.

With regard to Obama's church, which he attended for at least 20 years (I believe), and its pastor, and all the good things Obama originally had to say about him, etc., I would note that Wright preached black liberation theology which is, of course, heavily rooted in Marxism, which ties in to at least some extent with all the other fools Gary mentioned. Not to mention Obama's father, who was a Marxist, and his mother, who most likely was also (or at least a left-wing radical). Etc., etc., etc.

And take Ms. Obama, since they are both shelled out of the same pod, as it were. In 2008, she allowed as how for the first time in her adult life she was proud of America. Hmmmmm. That apparently means that for the 26 years between 1982-2008, Ms. Obama was not proud of America a single time. Not ONCE!!!! For ANYTHING!!! Sure sounds a LOT like an "angry black woman" to me. And now she is FLOTUS. What a country.

Further, this means that if she was not proud, then she obviously necessarily had to be either indifferent to or ashamed of (probably the latter) her country. Although Mr. Obama made no comments as specific as hers in this particular regard, I believe since they are joined at the hip and virtual clones, his attitude is undoubtedly essentially the same as hers.

Lastly, I am completely unable to fathom why it is "good" for Mr. Obama to characterize George W. Bush as "irresponsible" and "unpatriotic", while it is "bad" for Rudy G. to characterize Obama in essentially the same terms. Go figure.

Gary--this may very well be a duplicate attempt at posting, my apologies, forgive me if it is. I saw that another one of mine from this AM made it up and this one did not, so will try it agan. The content is not in my mind inflammatory or inappropriate, so maybe it just fell through the cracks or whatever. Thanx. EPS

Further, this means that if she was not proud, then she obviously necessarily had to be either indifferent/neutral to or (more likely) actually ashamed of, her country. Although Mr. Obama made no comments quite as specific as hers in this particular regard, I believe since they are joined at the hip and virtual clones, his attitude is undoubtedly essentially the same as hers.

What does Giuliani know about love, or America, or fidelity?

elwood, I watched all those YouTube videos of Rev. Wright when they became a campaign issue, and I couldn't find anything I strenuously objected to. OF course after Obama settled the whole matter with an eloquent speech, Wright elbowed his way into the spotlight with some really off the wall remarks, but I suspect he did that because his entire world view was threatened by the notion that a "white" electoral majority would actually vote for a member of his church.
