Rudy Giuliani gets ripped to shreds for sharing ominous ‘ode to fascism’ video on 9/11

Published

Rudy Giuliani marked the 18th anniversary of 9/11 by sharing an excerpt from a clothing commercial — and other social media users recoiled in horror.

Clothing manufacturer Grunt Style — which sells “patriotic” apparel celebrating police, military and violence — produced an ad last year the company says was intended for the Super Bowl that shows a police officer marching against anti-fascist demonstrators.

“This commercial shows what we stand for,” the company says in a statement posted with the video. “We support our military. We support the police. We support everyone’s right to protest. Protest peacefully.”

The officer is shown watching coverage of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks as a boy, joining the military after high school and then, after joining the police, wearing riot gear to protect himself against antifa demonstrators, who are portrayed as a violent mob.

“He has served his country and has held the line,” the company says. “He is doing so here. First protecting protesters and protecting their right to assemble, and when things turn violent, he and his fellow police officers do not run, they defend the line.”

The commercial drew conservative media attention last year with the suggestion that it had been rejected for the Super Bowl broadcast, but Grunt Style admits in the statement that it was never even submitted, and it’s not clear the company had enough money to air a commercial during the game.

Giuliani, who was mayor of New York City at the time of the attacks on the World Trade Center, posted an excerpt from the video, with the comment, “God bless America.”

The commercial’s message creeped out many other Twitter users.

Published

on

From the outset, Attorney General William Barr attacked the findings of Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz debunking GOP conspiracy theories about the FBI "spying" on President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign. But he was also joined by U.S. Attorney John Durham, a longtime career official in the Justice Department whom Barr had tapped to run a parallel investigation — even though Durham, according to recent reports, cannot find criminal misconduct to charge.

President Donald Trump's allies are still trying to figure out why Rudy Giuliani hired a 20-year-old Instagram personality as his director of communications.

The president's personal attorney travels everywhere, including Ukraine, with Christianné Allen, a former teenage Trump campaign volunteer who has served since September as his media strategist and technology consultant, reported Politico.

“Nobody can figure out who the eff she is or how she got in there,” a friend of Giuliani told the website's Daniel Lippman.

Trump blasted by former White House ethics chief for attacking his own FBI director

Published

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump lashed out at FBI director Christopher Wray on Twitter for endorsing DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz's report debunking the Republican claim that the FBI "spied" on Trump's 2016 campaign. "The current director," tweeted Trump, will "never be able to fix" the "badly broken" FBI.

Trump's remark, and possible threat to Wray's job, drew outrage from former White House ethics official Walter Shaub:

The history books will note that he fired not only an FBI Director but also an Attorney General for allowing an investigation of his campaign. Now he's attacking another FBI Director for not being supporting of conspiracy theories about that investigation. https://t.co/6pqjShuP8k
