    Rudy is a sneaky little runt that will do anything for money.

  • generationofswine Post author

    Trump is setting up a system where there is a blurred line or no difference between gov't, business, military, mafia, and industry. In addition, the cast of characters change jobs but stay the same. It is just like the system in Russia. From the beginning, Trump has shown that he likes dictators, the more brutal and criminal the better, so America now has a strong man with no regard for the law, who ignores the Congress for being controlled by the opposition. I would say the US is already a dictatorship, because whole departments of gov't raise the middle finger to lawful requests from Congress, even subpoenas, because nothing will happen to them. They won't be arrested, as any member of the public would be. Contempt can be a long time in jail depending. What will Democrats do when the WH refuses to accept the results of the election if they lose?

  • jd dj Post author

    It is about time!!…. since Rudy had such a big part in and covering up those who really were behind or connected to 9/11 many in the Republican Party. Maybe the rest of those sitting in our congressional seats, senate offices, and house members, who were involved in murdering over 4,000 Americans in front of our eyes will in some way be found out and finally be held accountable for their actions and the misuse of tax dollars. May all the domino's fall. There is no honor among thieves. Again….may all the domino's fall.

    When are these idiots going to understand trump hires fall guys to take the blame for his criminal actions. The evidence is already in prison.

  • Melvin Steward Post author

    The last six months have shown the tragic undoing of Mr. Guilianni and no one who knew or knows him should be surprised by what we are all now witnessing. Guilianni has always had an almost pathological addiction to the spotlight and frankly he NEVER had the prescense of mind and character to fight the seduction of the media

    Giuliani is in the same quagmire as many of these old elite asshats. Favors are getting called in on em when they should be retiring over on Golden Pond somewhere. These guys are dancing under coercion. That goes for BIDEN too. Society boy favors, promises. They were naughty, and promises were made, favors get called in. Big corporations want Biden to do them a solid with status quo, and Giuliani just your typical petty criminal, who got his ballz caught in the door, clearly Trump and E.

    All Giuliani wants, all he's EVER wanted, is to be the center of attention and feel like a big shot. It's so obvious, he's probably been corrupt since his days as a prosecutor and has been getting more and more corrupt along the way as he's getting away with it. His careers laid out like a bad movie, and for him it's going to have a very bad ending

    Rudy Giuliani would know because it takes a Crooked Criminal to know a Crooked Criminal! He too is UNHINGED and DISGRACEFUL. Lock him up too with his Crooked Criminal UNPRESIDENTIAL President Trump! THE TWO OF THEM ARE DESPICABLE TREASONOUS SELLOUTS!!!

  • veronicajade20 Post author

    Who the heck is shocked by that thug Giuliani committing crimes?! I lived in NYC when he was mayor – presiding over a violent police force & that piece of garbage tried to extend its mayoral term JUST b/c of 9/11. Hate him.

  • Cam F Post author

    Sounds like Giuliani has been doing what he has been accusing others of doing!

  • Crusty Cobs Post author

    It's like being arrested, and saying that you will not come along peacefully. Rudy's going down, whether
    he cooperates or not. Trump and Giuliani defying the Law, and defying the Constitution. Get them both.

    Give it a miss. This network is like a broken record.
    The evidence is out there members of the Obama Admin had ulterior motives with regard to Ukraine. Interests that they should have declared and not have been involved in any decisions relating to Ukraine or any involvement with Ukraine.
    Have Politics in the USA got to the stage where a Local, State or Federal Representative is not expected to declare any vested interests they have on particular matters they may be dealing with and remove themselves from any decisions or dealings with that Company, Corporation, Person or Nation.

    As an Australian we expect that of our Politicians. We have many forced to resign who fail to do that. Some face charges.
    Biden definitely had a vested interest in making sure he got the Prosecutor sacked in Ukraine that was investigating the Company his son Hunter was a Director of.
    Guilty beyond doubt. He should not have been involved. He is guilty of breaking at least the Code of Ethics of a Politician.
    Pelosi the same. He son has interests in Ukraine.
    It is as simple as a Rep on a Local Government should never attend Meetings if his Son or Business Associate has a Development Application before the Local Authority.

    In Australia if found out they would at least be forced to Resign.
    There is no reason also a Representative can't endeavour to get Evidence against a Representatives he or she suspects of having Vested Interests or having used there position to further there Interests in the past. That sort of person should never serve in any Government in the future ever.

    This is all that is happening in the USA as far as I can see.
    Trump as President has a duty to ensure all in his Admin or even past Admins have always acted in an honourable way. Especially if they are running for Office again.
    Exactly what the Democrats did against Trump. They accused him of basically being compromised by Russia. Accusations based on nothing but a now proved False Dossier paid for by them. Also based on a False accusation Russia had hacked there Computer system. No evidence to prove that. All the crap ever put up has long ago been proven false or inconclusive. Mueller did not consider any of it worth a pinch. None included in his long waffle where he found no evidence to Prosecute anybody.
    I have never seen any detailed report from the Private Consultants the Dems called in giving any proof Russia did hack there Computers. It must not do that.
    On top of that the Dems destroyed all the evidence that may have been able to prove there accusations true and had substance before they even contacted the FBI.
    To me that was a Crime. Destroying vital evidence before contacting the relevant Authority. If they were concerned Russia really did hack there Computers you do not destroy the evidence.
    That would be a crime in Australia if the matter could have endangered National Security.
    At least the FBI should have told them to get lost if they did not lay charges against them for destroying evidence.

    No fan of Trump here. Just another hopeless US President in a long list of Warmongers like Bush, Two Faced creeps like Obama, Hillary etc, Immoral people like Clinton – An older man should not take advantage of a young Impressionable Intern on his staff.
    Your Politics is Disgusting and your Media.

    Scary how the masses can be so easily manipulated by a crooked old corrupt mayor simply by invoking “patriotism” a little gift from the Bush administration and their gang that couldn’t shoot straight. The same ones who let the Saudi family of Bin Laden fly away then attacked the wrong country and created isis. Republican trickle down.

    You will know when Trump is about to give up and it is about to come to an end. You will see Manafort, Flynn etc Pardoned. Then Trump will take a late-night flight to Iraq or Syria to see the troops like he did last Christmas and he and Malania will jump on a plane to Moscow from there and never come back.

    That was expected Rudy was tough and he still is . The major mistake Rudy was He took on the Crooked FBI and CIA and he knows they were corrupt . They will make him confess to what ever they choose and very likely Rudy will be in Jail soon. Now throw this the opposite way round . It is very obvious that Joe Biden and his son are as corrupt as the Mafia. You are so corrupt here.
