Giuliani Says U.S. Will Be Prepared for Space-Alien Attack

Posted on Oct 15, 2007
alien attack

Giuliani says America will be prepared for an attack from another world, but is that even possible? Has he ever seen a science fiction movie?

Rudy Giuliani was in the middle of a town hall meeting in New Hampshire when a precocious youngster asked what he would do if aliens from another planet attacked us. “Of all the things that can happen in this world, we’ll be prepared for that, yes we will,” replied a confident Giuliani.

As if the Department of Homeland Security didn’t already have its hands full.

AP via Boston Globe:

Giuliani, grin on his face, said it was the first time he’s been asked about an intergalactic attack.

“Of all the things that can happen in this world, we’ll be prepared for that, yes we will. We’ll be prepared for anything that happens,” said Giuliani, who spent the day campaigning in key early voting state.

Being prepared is a theme that runs through the campaign of Giuliani, the mayor during the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in New York.

No wonder that SETI is a flop, uhh. Then again, what smart alien would want to come visit a world of belligerent savages bent on beating each others brains out while they perish from global warming, starvation and disease???

I don’t have any problem with space aliens visiting the earth, as long as they are documented space aliens. 

I’m not putting up with any illegal space aliens thinking they can come in and ignore our laws, and not pay taxes.

Now the pieces click together. Just a few years ago Bush said that we, the USA were going to Mars. Since we have to attack the terrorists over there before they attack us here, we must naturally attack the space aliens first.

All of this perfectly reasonable. However, will the space aliens attack us before Jesus returns or what?

Not only will we be prepared for interstellar alien invasions, but we’ll be assured that the air in the vicinity of whatever buildings they crush is perfectly safe, so breathe deeply….

There’s only one way to keep out space aliens….build a VERY high fence. That should do it. We could outsource the construction to Haliburton and hire Blackwater to patrol it. I think the only alien capable of penetrating that defense would be Ann Coulter.

it took a kid to come up with an original question & he got the natural Republican first response… he was lied to

I don’t know about his political views since I expect he’s never told the truth about anything but, I’m dead certain Rudy will be more than capable of continuing the work of Our Dear Liar.

Judge Eyed in Court-Transcript Probe
By Brad Hamilton, New York Post, May 7, 2006
The state court watchdog is investigating charges that Manhattan Supreme Court Judge Marilyn Diamond changed official transcripts, allegedly to help cover up favorable rulings she made for pals, The Post has learned. The Commission on Judicial Conduct interviewed court reporter Maurice Schwartzberg two weeks ago - and he admitted making “substantial revisions” to transcripts at the judge’s request in one case.
Judge’s $$ Offer in ‘Ripoff’
By Brad Hamilton, New York Post, October 31, 2004
Embattled Manhattan Supreme Court judge Marylin Diamond has made a multimillion-dollar settlement offer to an Israeli research center that claims she and her ex-law partner ripped off millions it stood to inherit, sources close to the deal said. Diamond made the offer last week even as she and ex-partner Janet Neschis were battling to get the center’s 3-year-old lawsuit tossed out of Manhattan federal court. The renowned Weizmann Institute of Science claims in court papers that it was due to inherit about $8 million from wealthy art collector Natasha Gelman upon her death in 1998. But the institute claims it lost out after Diamond and Neschis got their hands on the elderly woman’s vast fortune.
The NY Judge Who Was Previously Accused Of Sending Herself Threatening Letters
New York Daily News, Michele McPhee, New York Daily News, March 28, 2003.
The FBI has launched an investigation into Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Marylin Diamond, focusing on possible conflict of interest from the bench, the Daily News has learned. FBI Special Agent Matthew McPhillips has interviewed two men in the so-called Diamond Support Group, a cadre of 21 former litigants who say the judge ruled against them because of political alliances and personal vendettas. Separately, Sherrill Spatz, the inspector general for the state Office of Court Administration, also has opened a probe into Diamond’s decisions, sources said
Jewess Judge Diamond Writes Anti-Semitic Threats To Herself the Judge’s Mysterious Letters
By Michele Mcphee, New York Daily News, Daily News Police Bureau Chief, Saturday, September 14th, 2002.

A criminal profiler who analyzed threatening letters sent to a Manhattan judge has concluded that the judge wrote them herself, the Daily News has learned. Since Acting Supreme Court Justice Marylin Diamond reported the first of the bizarre threats three years ago, she has been guarded virtually around-the-clock by NYPD detectives or Supreme Court officers, according to law enforcement sources.

For someone who believes in open borders that’s a pretty ridiculous statement. If the aliens will work cheap, Rudy will let them in too.

You are a disgusting human being and deserve all the misery that life can offer.You are a phony legal
a-hole that has shown only a “mockery” of our system of “right and wrong” as is your platform (very weak platform, I might add). You represent all that is detestable in elected representatives and, most assuredly, should die a painful death. This society may have “bread” you, but (as to who you are) we reject you and wish you, and yours, pain/suffering & misery. May you die, as such you lived you S.O.B.

‘We still don’t know what it is or where it comes from…” (see video clip)

The Day The Earth Stood Still: “The tale begins when a mysterious spacecraft lands near the White House, frightening the residents of Washington, D.C. A pair of alien beings, Klaatu and Gort, emerge from the spacecraft, and are immediately fired upon by a soldier. Klaatu, despite his injury, announces that he has a very important message for all of humankind. The message, however, cannot be delivered until all of the world’s leaders agree to meet with him. The extra-terrestrial’s request is denied…”  (1951) Starring: Michael Rennie

Also from Wiki: “... tells the story of a humanoid alien who comes to Earth to warn its leaders not to take their conflicts into space, or they will face devastating consequences….. Produced in the aftermath of World War II, the start of the Cold War, and the development of the first atomic bombs, the film strongly and iconically reflected the cultural fears of the time related to violence, politics, and the fear of global annihilation. Blended into the nuclear war scare are strong allusions to a Second Coming motif….”

It’s been reported that Rudy took 7 years to get radios for the NYCFD on a no-bid contract from Motorola. The radios didn’t work. It is assumed that many of the Firemen who died in the WTC did so because they didn’t hear the alarm to leave the buildings.

He is only prepared to take credit for others efforts and to side-step any wrong-doing by blaming others.

He seems to be qualified to be President only if you are using G. bu$h as the template!

The aliens did attack Rudy they’ve been in the White House since 2000 and now populate Congress and TV. Indeed Rudy when you were on the phone w/your fake girlfriend the aliens took your temperature only to find that you were fake too.
