The Leftist MSM , otherwise known as the Obama/Democrat media complex is in a tizzy following Giuliani’s comments that Obama does not love America.
Former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani was at a private fundraiser for Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker when he said the following, “When I hear the President speak I don’t believe that he expresses the love of America as much as he does criticism of America.” Of course the LEFT, the MSM and Democrats are aghast at such comments. REALLY? I know, how dare anyone question anything to do with Barack Obama, the Obamamessiah. They must be racist. Does the truth hurt, Barack Obama was not brought up the same as most people with a love of country.
“I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the President loves America. He doesn’t love you. And he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country.”
Honestly, who would not question someone who is president who continually feels the need to apologize for America? A president of the United States who cannot utter the words “radical Islam” or admit that radical Islam is at war with the United States? Instead, Obama tells us that we have to get off our high horses because of the Crusades that took place centuries ago and said that terrorists have “legitimate” concerns. WHAT? Sorry folks, had Jimmy Carter made such comments in the late 1970′s in dealing with Iran, had JFK made such comments regarding the Soviet Union or had FDR made comments like this regarding the Nazi’s, Italy or Imperial Japan during WWII, they all would have been rode out of office on a rail and called traitors, let alone been questioned about their love of America.
Look for the LEFT and the MSM to run with this as a news distraction and running cover for Obama rather than report on the domestic and foreign disasters that are currently taking place. CNN has already called Rudy’s comments ugly and divisive. Isn’t that rich … in that the former NYC mayor was talking about the most divisive president ever!
Rudy Guilliani went on Fox & Friends to explain what he meant by his comments, instead of having the Obama propaganda media doing it for him. Guilliani said that he was not questioning Obama’s patriotism, he was questioning Obama’s rhetoric in that you rarely ever hear him talk of America in glowing fashion like former presidents Ronald Regan or even Bill Clinton did. However, what you do hear from Obama at every turn is criticism of America. Sorry, but Guiliani is correct in his interpretation. Barack Obama does not talk about “American exceptionalism”. Obama does not talk about America being “a shiny city on the hill”. Obama cut his teeth being a community organizer, which by definition means that he is a community agitator who is against what exists and looks for change.
Probably what Guilliani really meant to say is not that he does not love America, but as president he does not express his love of America enough, but instead he talks of the criticism of it instead. Who honesty can say that Obama has been a cheerleader for America? His past and upbringing would prevent that from happening. Obama in his heart thinks America is a western colonialist country responsible for evils around the world and still holds slavery against the United States, even though a black president has been elected.
Like it or not, Rudy Giuliani spoke what many believe and all too many have been afraid to say. Thus the reason why Democrats are up in arms and most cowardice Republicans are too Lilly-livered and gutless to stand up and say so.

Attorney General Eric Holder Blames Fox News For Talking About ‘Radical Islam’ (VIDEO) … Watch Reaction
Hasn’t this Fox News obsessed hater left office yet?
From The Daily Caller comes the following … At the National Press Club on Tuesday, outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder mocked Fox News for having the audacity of talking to much about the Obama administration’s refusal to use the term “radical Islam.” WOW, how dare they. Because you know Eric, if they didn’t report on it, we all know that the bias, left-wing liberal Democrat media complex would not. This is yet another example of just how small, petty and thin-skinned the Barack Obama White House is. Seriously, the media’s job is to question government. To single out a news media outlet like that is just so low rent. Holder said, we spend more time on what do you call it. Hmm, isn’t this the same person who calls out the Tea Party by name and calls police officers racists?
Huh, 21 Coptic Christians beheaded, a Muslim Jordain pilot burned alive in a cage, terror attacks in Paris and Copenhagen and the Obama administration refuses to use the term “radical Islam.” Instead they attack Fox News for actually doing their job. Why does it appear that the Obama administration talks tougher to Fox News than ISIS?
HOLDER: Whenever you’re getting criticized by both sides, it probably means you’re probably getting right. We spend more time, more time talking about what you call it, as opposed to what do you do about it, you know? I mean really. If Fox didn’t talk about this, they would have nothing else to talk about, it seems to me.
Radical Islam, Islamic extremism; I’m not sure an awful lot is gained by saying that. It doesn’t have any impact on our military posture; it doesn’t have any impact on what we call it, on the policies that we put in place. What we have to do is defined not by the terms that we use, but by the facts on the ground. So I don’t worry an awful lot about what the appropriate terminology ought to be.
I think that people need to actually think about that, and think about will we be having this conversation about words as opposed to what our actions ought to be? This is a difficult problem. This is going to be an ongoing issue. This is something that requires us to think as a nation how we are going to deal with the domestic issues that I was describing in my previous response, and how are we going to deal with the foreign policy consequences of some very, very serious problems that our allies face, and that we face, particularly in a particular part of the world. The terminology, it seems to me little to no impact on what ultimately we have to do.
Holder Blames Fox News For ‘Radical Islam’ Controversy – Greta Van Susteren
Watch the reaction to Holder’s comments. These may be some of the most truthful and honest comments ever made of the Obama administration. Its time to send the JV packing. Note to Obama, Holder et all … the jihad is not because they can’t get jobs at Arby’s.

Several Shots Fired at Swedish Cartoonist Lars Vilks at “Arts, Blasphemy and Freedom of Expression” Event in Copenhagen, Denmark (VIDEO) … Two Terrorist Suspects Remain At Large (Update: 1 Dead in Terrorist Shooting, 3 Police Wounded)(Update: Another Shooting at Copenhagen Synagogue)
BECAUSE FREE SPEECH HAS NO PLACE IN RADICAL ISLAM …
The BBC is reporting that several shot have been fired at Swedish Cartoonist Lars Vilks in a cafe where a freedom of speech event was taking place in Copenhagen, Denmark. Obviously, this was a terrorist-like shooting, similar to that of the one that took place in Paris, France at the offices of Charlie Hebdo. Lars Vilks has had numerous death threats since his 2007 drawing pictures of the Prophet Muhammad dressed as a dog. The two, unidentified suspects remain at large. According to the police, the Islamo-terrorists fled the scene in a dark Volkswagen Polo, which has since been found abandoned.
According to Lars Vilks website, the event that the 68-year-old artist was hosting Saturday was called “Arts, Blasphemy and Freedom of Expression.”
Reports say up to 40 shots were fired during the attack and a manhunt has been launched.
Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks has faced death threats after drawing caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad.
He was not harmed during the attack.
Shortly after the shooting, a message appeared on the Twitter feed of French ambassador Francois Zimeray saying he was still alive.
The area around the venue is under lockdown, the BBC’s Malcolm Brabant reports.
Police have erected cordons and are searching a nearby park, he adds.
There were reports that police were hunting two gunmen, but this is unconfirmed.
Shooting at Copenhagen blasphemy debate
UPDATE I: From Local Denmark, Danish police confirm that one person has died after shots were fired at a meeting attended by controversial Swedish artist Lars Vilks.
Update, 6.18pm: The civilian killed in Saturday’s shooting attack was a 40-year-old Danish citizen, police have said. Police added that they have founded the suspected getaway vehicle but two suspects are still at large.
Update, 6.08pm: Reports of up to 200 shots fired
The French ambassdor to Denmark told AFP from inside the venue that shots rang out in the midst of a debate on Islam and free speech in Copenhagen.
“They fired on us from the outside. It was the same intention as [the January 7 attack on] Charlie Hebdo except they didn’t manage to get in,” Francois Zimeray said by telephone.
Swedish artist Lars Vilks, the author of controversial Prophet Mohammed cartoons published in 2007 that sparked worldwide protests, was also at the debate.
Three police officers were reported wounded outside the building, Danish media reported, quoting eyewitnesses.
ABC News – Police: 1 Dead in Shooting at Copenhagen Free Speech Event:
According to a statement from Danish police, said the victim was a 40-year-old man inside the cafe attending the event. He has not yet been identified. The police also stated that three police colleagues at the event were also shot.
A gunman fired on a cafe in Copenhagen as it hosted a free speech event Saturday, killing one man, Danish police said. The event was organized by Swedish artist Lars Vilks, who has faced numerous threats for caricaturing the Prophet Muhammad.
Danish police said the gunman shot through the windows of the Krudttoenden cafe, which the TV2 news channel said were riddled with some 30 bullet holes. Helle Merete Brix, one of the event’s organizers, told The Associated Press that Vilks was at the meeting but was not hit.
“I saw a masked man running past,” Brix said. “I clearly consider this as an attack on Lars Vilks.”
Helle Merete Brix — the founder of the Lars Vilks Committee, created two years ago in support of the Swedish cartoonist whose portrayals of the Prophet Mohammed angered many in the Muslim world — told CNN that security on site moved her and others to safe areas once they realized a shooting had taken place.
She and Vilks ended up in a storage room together, holding hands, until police told them it was OK to come out.
“We have never taken any chances,” Brix said, pointing to the heavy security from police, Danish intelligence services and Vilks’ own security guards at this and other committee events. “What we have so much been frightened would happen happened tonight.”
VIDEO – Telegraph: Aftermath of Copenhagen cafe shooting
UPDATE III: The man killed at the free-speech debate identified as Finn Norgaard.
UPDATE IV: Police Respond to Second shooting in Copenhagen synagogue in Krystalgade street.
Hours later, a gunman opened fire outside a synagogue in Krystalgade street, about 5km from the scene of the first attack, killing a Jewish man and wounding two police officers.
The victim was named as Dan Uzan, 37. He had been on security duty while a bat mitzvah ceremony was taking place inside the synagogue.
UPDATE V: Copenhagen attacks – the victims.
Finn Norgaard, 55, who was killed in the Copenhagen cafe attack, was a Danish film director, who directed and produced documentaries for Danish television including in 2004 “Boomerang boy” about an Australian boy’s dreams to become a world boomerang champion and in 2008 “Le Le” about Vietnamese immigrants in Denmark.
Dan Uzan, 37, who was killed in the subsequent synagogue attack, came from a family active in Copenhagen’s Jewish community. He attended a Jewish school and joined the community’s security efforts, taking part in patrols to protect Jewish institutions, from a young age.
At 6ft 9 inches, he was a talented basketball player and had played for Horsholm 79-ers since 1996. In a statement the club described him as “a great player and a great personality.”
Danish police raided an Internet cafe in Copenhagen, arresting at least two people in the area where a suspected gunmen in Saturday’s terror attacks was killed, AFP reported on Sunday, citing Danish media.
Police told Denmark’s DR television that the raid was part of the investigation into the terror attacks in which two people were killed.
UPDATE VII: Suspected terrorist gunman killed by Danish Police.
Daily Commentary – Friday, February 13, 2015 – The Future of NBC Anchor Brian Willaims is Very Much in Question
- Now that he has been suspended for 6 months without pay, in the fallout over an exaggerated story, from an incident in 2003 while covering Iraq
NBC NEWS MOTTO: IT AIN’T A LIE UNLESS YOU GET CAUGHT … BRIAN WILLIAMS SUSPENDED.
The Politico is reporting that effective immediately NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams has been suspended for six months without pay for his faux Iraq war news story in 2003. Gee, it only took over 10 years for NBC to act against Williams, even though it was known by many at NBC that it was a false story. Not until Iraq war vets finally called Williams on his BS did NBC finally act. That, and a bad attempt at an apology. NBC suit, Steve Burke, the CEO of NBC Universal, stated that his actions “are inexcusable and this suspension is severe and appropriate.” REALLY? This is a PR nightmare for NBC and they are just looking to make this story go away. Is Williams finished at NBC News? Many think so and that this is just a behind the scene way to do so. What happens when Williams stories of seeing floating bodies in the French Quarter from his hotel following Hurricane Katrina and him looking down the tube of an RPG are investigated?
NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams has been suspended for six months without pay following his false claims about an experience he had during the Iraq war, NBC News president Deborah Turness announced Tuesday night.
“We have decided today to suspend Brian Williams as Managing Editor and Anchor of NBC Nightly News for six months. The suspension will be without pay and is effective immediately,” Turness wrote in a memo to staff. “We let Brian know of our decision earlier today. Lester Holt will continue to substitute Anchor the NBC Nightly News.”
In addition to Williams’ false claims about Iraq, Turness said she the Comcast/NBCUniversal brass had “concerns about comments that occurred outside NBC News while Brian was talking about his experiences in the field.”
“This has been a painful period for all concerned and we appreciate your patience while we gathered the available facts. By his actions, Brian has jeopardized the trust millions of Americans place in NBC News. His actions are inexcusable and this suspension is severe and appropriate. Brian’s life’s work is delivering the news. I know Brian loves his country, NBC News and his colleagues. He deserves a second chance and we are rooting for him. Brian has shared his deep remorse with me and he is committed to winning back everyone’s trust.”
CNN’s Dan Abrams: ‘They are worried about other stuff coming out and this is their way of punting.”
Amid False Iraq War Story, NBC News Anchor ‘Lyin’”Brian Williams Cancelling Appearance with David Letterman
FUNNY WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE TRUTH IS MADE PUBLIC …
In the wake of the scandal and contravention that surrounds NBC News nightly news anchor Brian Williams, he has canceled his scheduled appearance with David Letterman. So, not only is Brian Willaims taking a hiadeous away from NBC News, he is also going into hiding from all public appearance. What’s the matter Lyin’ Brian Williams, you mean you are not going to appear on Letterman’s show and rehash the lie of your Iraq helicopter experience to make you look all big and important? You mean you are not going to interject yourself into the story as if you were ever in danger? Sorry, but in my eyes and to many, what you did in lying about what happened to have people think you were brave, is no different that someone wearing a military uniform and medals who have never served in the military just trying to get attention.
Brian Williams is backing out of his scheduled appearance on CBS’s “Late Show with David Letterman,” citing the uncertainty about when he’ll be back at his anchor desk.
But until Sunday afternoon he was still scheduled to show up for his date with Letterman on Thursday.
The sudden change reflects the chaotic situation behind the scenes at NBC News and among Williams’ representatives.
On Sunday morning, a spokeswoman for the “Late Show” said there had been no change to the plans for Williams to appear on Letterman’s show.
WOW, this might be a first in all my years of blogging, never has Hot Air been more wrong and have I disagreed more … ‘Should we really be happy to see Brian Williams go’? The answer is “YES!!!” Sorry, when one steals honor from others, that is a big deal. When some one puts them-self falsely in the same danger as those who actually are put in danger, that is a big deal. And when it looks like Williams lied too about Hurricane Katrina, which was a concerted effort to make the GWB administration response look bad, that too is an issue. Williams was tasked with reporting the news, not making it up!
In the end, Williams’ lies seem to be more along the lines of your crazy, drunken Uncle Mel who shows up for holiday dinners and tells vastly expanded fishing tales. [...]
I’m not excusing what Williams did in any fashion. And if he falls, he clearly brought it on himself. I suppose all I’m saying here is that the mistakes Brian Williams made are more along the lines of self aggrandizement than some nefarious effort to hide or distort the actual news. It’s a human trait which more of us can likely relate to than other crimes, and I guess I’m just feeling a bit of sympathy for him this morning.
EXIT QUESTION: Over/Under … how many days does Brian Williams have left as Nightly News anchor at NBC News?
Gallup CEO Jim Clifton … The Official Obama 5.6% Unemployment Rate Amounts to a Big Lie … Tells CNBC He Might “Suddenly Disappear” for Telling the Truth About Unemployment Lie
Well, if Gallup CEO suddenly disappears we will know why …
Gallup CEO Jim Clifton says during an interview with CNBC that he is worried he might “suddenly disappear” and not make it home that evening if he disputed the accuracy of what the U.S. government is reporting as unemployed Americans. How sad is it that many would not put it past the Obama administration to actually retaliate against an American citizen for speaking the truth?
The CNBC interview came one day after Clifton had penned a gutsy opinion piece on Gallup’s web site, defiantly calling the government’s 5.6 percent unemployment figure “The Big Lie” in the article’s headline. His appearance on CNBC was apparently to walk back the “lie” part of the title and reframe the jobs data as just hopelessly deceptive.
Clifton stated the following on CNBC:
“I think that the number that comes out of BLS [Bureau of Labor Statistics] and the Department of Labor is very, very accurate. I need to make that very, very clear so that I don’t suddenly disappear. I need to make it home tonight.”
But after making that opening comment in case he suddenly goes missing, Jim Clifton went on to eviscerate the legitimacy of the cheerful spin given to the unemployment data by the Obama White House and liberal MSMS, stating to CNBC viewers that the percent of full time jobs in this country as a percent of the adult population “is the worst it’s been in 30 years.” Otherwise known as Obama’s Big Lie. Then again, hasn’t the entire Barack Obama presidency been one big lie and scandal after another?
Gallup CEO: 13 Million Jobs Lost – Only 3 Million Created Under Obama
Jim Clifton, Gallup CEO – The Big Lie: 5.6% Unemployment:
Here’s something that many Americans — including some of the smartest and most educated among us — don’t know: The official unemployment rate, as reported by the U.S. Department of Labor, is extremely misleading.
Right now, we’re hearing much celebrating from the media, the White House and Wall Street about how unemployment is “down” to 5.6%. The cheer-leading for this number is deafening. The media loves a comeback story, the White House wants to score political points and Wall Street would like you to stay in the market.
None of them will tell you this: If you, a family member or anyone is unemployed and has subsequently given up on finding a job — if you are so hopelessly out of work that you’ve stopped looking over the past four weeks — the Department of Labor doesn’t count you as unemployed. That’s right. While you are as unemployed as one can possibly be, and tragically may never find work again, you are not counted in the figure we see relentlessly in the news — currently 5.6%. Right now, as many as 30 million Americans are either out of work or severely underemployed. Trust me, the vast majority of them aren’t throwing parties to toast “falling” unemployment.
There’s another reason why the official rate is misleading. Say you’re an out-of-work engineer or healthcare worker or construction worker or retail manager: If you perform a minimum of one hour of work in a week and are paid at least $20 — maybe someone pays you to mow their lawn — you’re not officially counted as unemployed in the much-reported 5.6%. Few Americans know this.
Yet another figure of importance that doesn’t get much press: those working part time but wanting full-time work. If you have a degree in chemistry or math and are working 10 hours part time because it is all you can find — in other words, you are severely underemployed — the government doesn’t count you in the 5.6%. Few Americans know this.
There’s no other way to say this. The official unemployment rate, which cruelly overlooks the suffering of the long-term and often permanently unemployed as well as the depressingly underemployed, amounts to a Big Lie.
