911 Protesters booted from Giuliani Event

From NBC/NJ’s Matthew E. Berger

LOVELAND, Colo. -- About a half dozen protestors were asked to leave a local coffeehouse Saturday where Giuliani was visiting, after they shouted questions about conspiracies surrounding the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

No formal arrests were made, according to Loveland Police Sgt. Greg Eisentraut, but about a half dozen protesters were removed from the event, after trying to ask Giuliani whether he had advanced knowledge of the terrorist attacks. One protestor, who was detained by police, described himself as the publisher and Editor-In-Chief of New York Megaphone and was led away by officers on both arms, yelling, “I have an excellent attorney.”

“What you did was illegal,” he screamed at police officials. “What you did was a violation of the f------ Bill of Rights.”

The protesters used megaphones to scream that Giuliani had advanced knowledge of the pending towers' collapse. They also made other claims, including that Giuliani was not a true conservative because of his views on abortion. After Giuliani left, attendees honked their car horns to drown out the protestors, who remained outside the parking lot, yelling into megaphones and arguing with Giuliani backers.

Giuliani downplayed the protestors, who dogged him throughout the coffeehouse visit.

“It’s part of America,” Giuliani said. “You learn when you are mayor of New York City that people have all kinds of different opinions, all kinds of different views. It’s not anything I don’t expect; it’s not anything I haven’t faced before, probably considerably bigger than this. After being mayor of New York for eight years, I would consider this event kind of a minor, four-, five-person protest.”

He said conspiracy theorists are protesting all over the place. “It’s very sad,” he said. “It’s not true. But you’re not going to convince them it’s not true. Somehow their emotions overtake they logic and their rationality.”

A day after McCain said the indictment of Bernard Kerik raised questions about Giuliani’s judgment, Giuliani continued to express disbelief that the remarks were McCain’s real feelings. “I will never attack John McCain personally, nor will I question his judgment,” Giuliani said. “We can have differences on policies, but I’d be very surprised if John would do that with me. We’ve been good friends; we respect each other.”

Giuliani reiterated that he made a mistake in not vetting Kerik, but said he would have to leave the matter to the federal courts. He also said he didn’t know anything about the Clinton campaign planting questions at town hall meetings.

“I think the biggest problem for the Clinton campaign is not whether they plant questions at events,” Giuliani said. “It’s the whole shifting positions of Hillary Clinton, which I think have now caught up with her.” He then went into his frequent attacks on drivers’ licenses for illegal immigrants.

Rudy's thugs had to blow car

Rudy's thugs had to blow car horns to prevent the Patriots from getting the message heard by everyone in the vicinity. That speaks volumes for the Truth. If it were all lies the Patriots were screaming about then Rudy wouldn't care about and let the message dam itself. The fact that Rudy has now a tactic says that we are right and he is a criminal. The Police should be ashamed of themselves for detaining these individuals who are standing up for America.

Hey greenback (OT, sorry)

A long time ago you posted that you were looking for info on pre-911 asbestos removal costs or demolition plans for the WTC:


Did you ever find anything? I know someone who's looking for that info right now, and would love to get my hands on it.



Raimondo Highlights Guiliani, Kerik, Israeli Connections


Do the US and Israel mirror each other in the sense that the lines between government, secret service and mafia are blurred and the operatives interchangable between countries. Is Israel a front for the British and US MIC?

Also, another threat from President Bush,

""America is blessed to have such brave defenders. They are tomorrow's veterans and they are bringing pride to our country. Their service is noble and it is necessary," he said. "The enemies who attacked us six years ago want to strike our country again, and next time they hope to kill Americans on a scale that will make 9/11 pale by comparison."


Emptywheel blogs about Pakistan and 9/11 type potential. While she doesnt quite seem seem to get 9/11 this bit of writing is worthwhile.

"Understand: the threat that Al Qaeda could get nukes was the single most important driving force behind the Iraq war. And now, because BushCo has seen fit to put Cheney in charge of its Pakistan policy, and Cheney has seen fit to make a spokesperson one of the main architects of that policy, there is a very real possibility that our "ally" Pakistan will provide nukes to the guys that hit us on 9/11. And the White House's response is to dictate that, "this problem will not be discussed in public." "


And finally, comment by Lukery on Dkos from his latest diary there on Friday....

I luv New York, corruption! But, New York Megaphone is great!

It sounds like one determined, dogged cross country protest in Loveland, CO. I applaud the New York Megaphone's effort!

What would America be without New York/New Jersey corruption? Giuliani attempts to act totally PC, but it won't fly! Who believes that Giuliani is completely clean? He waxes philosophical about human nature, because he knows firsthand noone in New York is clean!

Giuliani probably knew everything about Kerik all the way! He would do better to dish up some reality along the campaign trail!

...don't believe them!

“It’s very sad,” he

“It’s very sad,” he said. “It’s not true. But you’re not going to convince them it’s not true. Somehow their emotions overtake they logic and their rationality.”

Ah....sure Rudy. Whatever you say. I have a strong feeling that Rudy better get used to these type of receptions as the campaign moves closer to election season.

Kudos to the few in Colorado for their persistence and courage.
