Arch Enemies; Rudy Giuliani Vs the Mafia

I have recently discovered a new channel down here in the US of A, Investigative Discovery, which is basically a police and law enforcement channel. I just finished watching a documentary about Rudy Giuliani and his life long war against organized crime. Born in Brooklyn, he grew up in a city where many young Italians idolized the Mafia. A brutal force of organized crime that terrorized the city. A young Giuliani made it his mission in life to free Americans from the iron fist of the mob. He graduated from the Law School at NYU in 1968. In 1980, one month after the election of Ronald Reagan, Rudy switched party affiliation from Independent to Republican. In 1981 he was tapped by the Reagan Administration to a high post in the Department of Justice. When Reagan stepped on stage to declare war on the Mafia and organized crime, the 38 year old Rudy Giuliani was on the stage with the President. Sarah Palin was in high school.

In 1983, Giuliani was appointed U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. At the time, crime rates in NYC were through the roof, and the majority of that criminal activity was the product of organized crime. Rudy embarked on his mission to free his beloved city from the terror of mob rule virtually immediately. He once said "I think it would be great for Italian Americans if we could rid ourselves of the mob." He set out to banish heroin and crack from the streets, to prosecute corruption in Wall Street, and engage in an all out blitzkrieg against organized crime. He rolled over the mob "Maginot Line" like hot butter on your breakfast toast. About the time that Sarah Palin was competing in a beauty contest, Rudy was relentlessly engaged in building his case against the heads of the 5 families. The prosecution won on November 19 1986, and all those mob bosses are either still in prison or dead.

Rudy Giuliani's coordination of disaster response in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks was extraordinary in the face of the worst tragedy in the history of the United States. If Rudy as President of the United States would engage Al Qaeda with the same passionate vigour with which he engaged organized crime in New York City, I wouldn't care if he showed up to work in the Oval Office wearing women's clothes!

If you polled police officers across the country, who would you rather have as your Commander and Chief, Rudy Giuliani or Sarah Palin, guaranteed it would be at least 80% Rudy.

If you polled gangsters across the country, who would you rather have as Commander and Chief, Rudy Giuliani or Sarah Palin, guaranteed it would be at least 95% Sarah.

If you polled Al Qaeda constituents, who would you rather have as President of the United States, Rudy Giuliani or Sarah Palin, guaranteed it would be at least 95% Sarah.

Sarah Palin is a nice lady and I like her on a personal level, but if I have to endorse a candidate to run against Obama on the Republican ticket in 2012, it is Rudy by a country mile.

"One ought never to turn one's back on a threatened danger and try to run away from it. If you do that, you will double the danger. But if you meet it promptly and without flinching, you will reduce the danger by half."

-Sir Winston Churchill

  1. Note that about 80% of the Sarah Palin votes on the poll to the left came from an influx of traffic that I observed from far left web sites. The large majority of Liberals directed to my site by a far leftie voted for Palin over their guy in power Obama. What does that tell you?
