Trump Considers Banning Giuliani From TV Interviews After Failure To Stay "On Message"

President Trump is reportedly considering benching the newest addition to his legal team, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, after Giuliani repeatedly dropped the ball during interviews with Fox's Sean Hannity and others during a disastrous media blitz last week.

The Associated Press reported Tuesday morning that Trump is growing "increasingly irritated" with Giuliani, who failed to stay "on message" during last week's media blitz, and is beginning to question whether Giuliani should do any more television interviews.

Trump is also reportedly annoyed that Giuliani has "breathed new life" into the Daniels story (though, to be fair, with two lawsuits winding their way through courts in New York and Los Angeles, the story probably wasn't going to disappear from headlines anytime soon).

Giuliani

Giuliani famously caused an uproar last week after he suggested that Trump was, in fact, made aware of Michael Cohen's $130,000 "hush money" payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels after the fact.

He then dug himself in deeper when he refused to rule out the possibility that Cohen might've paid other women.

Trump has also snapped at Hannity for saying during the interview that Trump had "funneled" money to Daniels via a law firm. Trump was apparently upset at the connotation of the world "funneled."

And apparently, other Trump allies - including attorney Alan Dershowitz - are growing concerned about Giuliani's frequent screw-ups.

"They’re admitting to enough that warrants scrutiny. It shouldn’t be put on television shows off the cuff," said Alan Dershowitz, the emeritus Harvard law professor who has been informally advising Trump on the Russia collusion probe. "This is not the way to handle a complicated case."

Of course, the comments about Giuliani's performance haven't been exclusively negative.

Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Monday that Trump felt the former mayor "added value" to his outside legal team. Trump himself said on Friday that Giuliani was still "learning the subject matter", adding that he is a "a great guy but he just started a day ago."

In one criticism that has been frequently reported over the past week, some Trump aides are concerned that Giuliani is behaving like a "principal" and not like "a member of the team."

The State Department has also cautioned that Giuliani - who famously declared that he would only accept the position of secretary of state, but did not receive the job - doesn't speak for the department after he said last week - again off the cuff - that North Korea would be releasing the three US prisoners in their custody. This has not yet happened.

"He speaks for himself and not on behalf of the administration on foreign policy," State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said Monday.

Presumably, even if Trump were to ban Giuliani from doing interviews, the former mayor and one-time presidential contender would continue spearheading negotiations with Special Counsel Robert Mueller, with whom he has an extensive working relationship from their years at the Department of Justice. Because the Trump team couldn't afford another high-profile exit at such a crucial juncture in the investigation.

There are no ancient Jewish cities in Israel,...
but there are lots of ancient Greek cities.

What is weird is this; that 2000 years ago, it seems that there were no people even resembling Jews, in Israel.

It turns out that there is not a single ancient Jewish city in what is now called Israel. There is not a single ancient city where Hebrew characters are used on the statues and buildings. There is not a single ancient city where the buildings are in the ancient Jewish architectural style. In fact, there is not even a category of "ancient Jewish architectural style".

Of course, the Hebrew characters that are desired, are those of the Dead Sea scrolls (supposedly from 2000 years ago), which are essentially the modern Hebrew characters without points.

If you check out all the ancient cities in Israel from 2000 years ago, they are all Greek, and their ruins are still there for you to visit. Their inscriptions are in the Greek script and the buildings are in the ancient Greek architectural styles.

Here is a list of some of the known ancient Greek cities in (and near) Israel; Ecdippa, Seleucia, Ptolemais, Taricheia Arbela, Asochis, Sepphoris, Hippos, Dion, Sycaminum, Bucolon Polis, Itabyrium, Gadara, Abila, Dora, Comus, Gephrus, Crocodilion Polis, Caesarea, Straton's Tower, Narbata, Scythopolis, Pella, Samaria, Amathus, Ragaba, Gerasa, Apollonia, Sicima, Pegae, Joppa, Arimathea, Jamnia, Port of Jamnia, Lydda, Modiin, Aphaerema, Philadelphia, Birtha, Gazara, Beth Horon, Dok, Jericho, Samaga, Esbus, Medaba, Ladder of Tyre, Azotus, Port of Azotus, Accaron, Jerusalem, Ascalon, Anthedon, Gaza, Marissa, Beth Zur, Hebron, Adora, Engeddi.

The ancient Jewish cities in Israel are,....... well there aren't any. Not even one.

Here's an interesting example of a first century BC Greek inscription (i.e., in Greek letters) from Jerusalem's Temple Mount forbidding the entry of strangers to the Temple precinct.

http://www.preearth.net/images/no-foreigner-shall-enter.jpg

The pictured stone was found in 1935. It was actually the second such warning-stone to be found, the first being discovered by Charles Simon Clermont-Ganneau in 1871. This stone was deemed so dangerous to the "Jews inhabited Israel 2000 years ago" theory, that it completely disappeared for 13 years before resurfacing in Istanbul, where, it was correctly calculated, it would not attract much attention.

From: https://www.timesofisrael.com/ancient-temple-mount-warning-stone-is-clo…

The first Jerusalem Temple Mount warning-stone, now found in the Archaeology Museum, Istanbul, is pictured below:

http://preearth.net/images/jerusalem-temple-warning-at-istanbul.jpg

It says (in Greek): "No stranger is to enter within the balustrade round the temple and enclosure. Whoever is caught will be responsible to himself for his death, which will ensue."

The oldest synagogue in Israel (is a Greek synagogue).

The word synagogue = ΣΥΝΑΓΩΓΗ is a Greek word for a gathering of people, assembly, or meeting place.

It is exceedingly strange that Jews should have chosen a Greek word to name their churches.

Here is a photo of the dedication stone of the oldest (once existing) synagogue in Israel.

http://www.preearth.net/images/theodotus-inscription.jpg

Note that the inscription is in Greek letters.

The stone is known as the Theodotus Inscription. The building that the stone was once part of, has not survived. The stone was discovered by Raimond Weill in 1913 at Mount Ophel in Jerusalem. It was found dumped in a cistern. The style of the Greek characters dates it to the first century B.C.

It states: "Theodotus, son of Vettenus, priest and archisynagogue, son of an archisynagogue, grandson of an archisynagogue, built the synagogue for the reading of the Law and the teaching of the commandments, and guest-house and the rooms and the water supplies for the lodging of strangers in need, which his fathers founded and the Elders and Simonides."

Note that Theodotus has a Greek name.

Note that his father Vettanos has a Greek name.

The word archisynagogos means "leader of the synagogue". So, it seems that three generations of Greeks headed the oldest (known) synagogue in Israel.

I wonder why the early "Jews" hated Hebrew and loved Greek.

Slack Jack's CHALLENGE:

Name ONE ancient city (that existed in what is now called Israel) where the building inscriptions are all in Hebrew, and the buildings are constructed in the ancient Hebrew architectural style (whatever that may be).

Then give a summary of "the ancient Hebrew architectural style" (you will have to make this up as it does not yet exist).

Then give links to photos of the ancient building inscriptions which show that they are written in Hebrew.

Then show that the buildings are constructed in the ancient Hebrew architectural style (that you have just invented).

http://www.preearth.net/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=1175

It's been MANY MANY MANY months now and still no one is up to the challenge.

So, no one can provide solid evidence that even ONE ancient city in what is now called Israel, was unequivocally Jewish, 2000 years ago.

All I see is Trump trying to amicably dance with the devil (Mueller), while Guiliani is calling the devil out for what he is:

A malignant cunt and disease on humanity.

Which is pretty much what he did in that interview (I may have paraphrased a tad, but Rudi's contempt is always sommething to admire).

 

No one has yet drilled down to Mueller's ulterior purpose: To look under every irrelevant stone, to find something, anything for fuck's sake, because there has to be something, even if it's a fucking perjury trap, to give to the Dems the means to impeach Trump with after the midterms. Granted, with Comey gone, he is probably the last Guardian of the Swamp (a Marvel anti-hero, Stan?) protecting many from a shitstorm hovering overhead. More like a kid with his dick in the dike, if you ask me. Only less useful. And that shit is getting heavier by the day.

 

Listen up, Mueller, you soulless sub-human cunt.

That hard reaming you got up the arse last Friday from Justice Ellis?

It's only going to get worse from here on in.

Because you are a fucking joke.

And everything you manufacture is a joke.

You cunt.

 

But stress not, you are just one. One in a long line of fuckwits whose relationship with our special, but totally incompetent (and in all likelihood incontinent) deep deep deep state operative, Hillary Clinton, and her cabal of filth, has unmasked in the eyes of the public as being deserving only of a) contempt with extreme prejudice, b) a guillotine, or c) an incurable, and excrutiating terminal illness*.

 

Suck it up, Bob.

You fucking joke.

 

*As an aside, in the case of point c) hopefully McCain is screaming at the end.

Everybody seems surprised Mueller is a soulless, relentless bastard.  They must not have had any contact with career prosecutors before.  That's what they are, that's what they do.

Giuliani is doing exactly what Trump wants him to do, what Trump demands everyone around him do, and what Trump does himself.  Always lie.  Always obfuscate.  Always create confusion.  Always attack, especially from one's weakest point.  Never tell the same story twice.  It's worked for Trump his entire career.  He creates such a mess that nobody has the time, energy or most importantly the money, to dig through the bullshit and establish the truth.

The difference this time is that Trump has never dealt with a career prosecutor who smells blood.  Everyone Trump has bamboozled his whole life has had some interest in dealing with Trump.  If they walk away, they lose their money, or Trump blackballs them or disposes of them in some way.  Trump has no leverage over Mueller.  The most Trump could do is to fire Mueller.  That wouldn't hurt Mueller much and it probably wouldn't hurt Trump any either, in the short run. 

In the long run however, Trump firing Mueller would make it clear that America is now a nation run by personalities, not laws.  Most of us already know that, but many of us don't like that.  Trump and his steadfast loyalists see the system as not just broken, but a bad idea and an unreasonable burden of wealthy celebrities and would-be-power brokers.

I see a lot all allusions to Ancient Rome recently.  Such comparisons are nefarious, because history doesn't really repeat.  Ancient Roman culture was very different from modern American culture, also.  But a lot of the dynamics that were in play from about 120 BC to about 50 BC are in play right now.  We don't have any figures of the stature of Caesar or Pompey, but we certainly have an ossified, corrupt and ineffectual ruling class, a disappearing middle class, and a lower class that has given up on cultural values and indulges itself with self-destructive entertainment and is more interested in social vandalism than addressing real structural problems.

When somebody with the skills and talents of a Caesar or Pompey appears in America, we're in a lot of trouble.

Guiliani is just playing a part in the soap-opera Mueller investigations which was a big nothing burger from the start and continues to be used used for the fake-news Russia bashing campaign and to deflect attention away from controversy over Trump's disastrous Ziocon US foreign policy. The only real relevance left for Guiliani is to arrest, try, and hang him and about 1,000 others for their involvement in 9/11.

If Mueller is there to tap dance until the mid-terms, what is Giuliani's roll? To force them to wrap it up? Or to keep the heat on Trump to stay on-point for the Rothschilds?

And what are the democrats going to use as the October surprise? The little prostitute from Thailand? Haven't seen her in the headlines since they posted the photos of her sitting in her cell, leaning back on the open cell door.

Donald Trump says bombs were used on 9/11
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rt-ldMj9y9w&t=5s

"It wasn't architectural defect.  The WTC was always known as a very, very strong building. Don't forget, that building took a big bomb in the basement (in 1993).  Now the basement is the most vulnerable place, because that is your foundation, and it withstood that.  And I got to see that area, about 3 or 4 days after it took place, because one of my structural engineers actually took me for a tour, because he did the building.  And I said, "I can't believe it." The building was standing solid, and half the columns were blown out.  This was an unbelievably strong building.  If you know anything about structure, it was one of the first buildings that was built from the outside.  The steel, the reason the WTC had such narrow windows, is that in between all the windows you had the steel on the outside.  You had the steel on the outside of the building.  That's why when I first looked at it, you had big heavy I-beams.  When I first looked at it I couldn't believe it, because there was a hole in the steel.  And this was steel that was, you remember the width of the windows of the world trade center, folks, I think that you know, If you were ever up there, they were quite narrow, and in between was this heavy steel.  I said: How could a plane, even a 767 or a 747 or whatever it might have been, how could it possibly go through the steel?  I happen to think that they had not only a plane, but they had bombs that exploded almost simultaneously.  Because I just can't imagine anything being able to go through that wall.  Most buildings are built where the steel is on the inside around the elevator shafts.  This one was built from the outside, which is the strongest structure you can have.  And
it was almost just like a can of soup.

I just think that it was a plane with more than just fuel. Obviously they were very big planes, they were going very rapidly.  Because, I was also watching where the plane seemed to be not only going fast, it seemed to be coming down, into the building, so it was getting the speed from going down hill, so to speak.  It just seemed to me that to do that kind of destruction, is even more than a big plane, because you are talking about taking out steel.  The heaviest caliber steel was used on the building.  These buildings were rock solid.  And, it's just an amazing, amazing thing."

the place was built on bedrock - seismic signature would have clearly stated it was a nuke, if it were a nuke.  the hudson river didnt flow into the giant crater left by a nuke, either, and not only that, the concrete bathtub wasnt even damaged, that's the only reason the Hudson stayed put.

no, the place registered a smaller footprint than the superdome, which wasnt even built on bedrock.

not only was it not a nuke, but a significant portion of 1& 2 did not even impact the ground.

but nevermind brookhaven's linear accelerator being directly lined up with wtc, that's space age crazey talk,

we all know its perfectly natural for a cat4 hurricane to take a 90 degree turn towards europe in the span of 8 hours with no jetstream front to push it,

and its just as natural for the only instances of fire allegedly taking down a steel framed high rise to coincide with the magnetometer readings as far away as Alaska to go apeshit upon first impact and only return to normal once 7 fell. 

that damned jet fuel!

And people called me crazy for saying that people were making idiot assertions about nukes going off on 9/11.

The towers falling released about the same amount of explosive force as a suitcase nuke. THAT is where the energy came from. If it had been a nuke, first responders would have had radiation poisoning, not silicosis, not lead poisoning, not mesothelioma, not mercury poisoning.

More than 70,000 people in Manhattan have been found with radiological cancers since then.

W-54 Davy Crockett's were used. Those are 1KT mini-nukes from the artillery arsenal.

In concert with thermobaric weapons, nano-thermite, well placed charges and an entire apparatus of control top down to complete the mission... you got three buildings decimated into powdered ash and a lot of mass murdered people form their own government to blame along with the UK, ISRAEL and the Saudi's.

Tritium found all over Manhattan day of. Ask yourself... how do you get to Tritium? Show me ANY OF YOU on the Periodic Table where this element can be found?

Fireman's Hazmat suits with their radiological detectors all flashing? I've seen this piece of evidence no question is was real footage.

W-54 Davy Crockett 1KT mini-nukes were used as part of a combination of thermobaric weapons and with planted charges and along with the cutting charges nano-thermite. The most complete set of demolitions ever witnessed in humanity were accomplished with 3 buildings falling perfectly into their own footprint from only two planes? Yeah right, getting your head around the math. COME ON TROLLS... Let Old Navy school ya! I can take you straight to the woodshed on this topic.

Sure, steel has strength against impacts, but steel will soften and bend under enough heat, and collapse under its own weight. You just need a fire that will achieve enough heat to soften structural steel around 800 degrees.  Structural steel loses about half of its strength when temperatures reach 1200 degrees. And with the aluminum of the Jet and the jet fuel burning at 1100 degrees, as well as other flammable materials inside the building, you really don't need high explosives to do the job. If Al Qaeda could figure that out, why can't Americans?

ZH has changed its member-search function, but I believe there was a long-time poster named "Chief Joseph," spelled correctly.  "Chief Joesph" is a recent joiner of the club.  I'm guessing it's the same poster, under a very slightly different handle.  Not that it's any of my business or that I care particularly.  I don't think the mis-spelling is accidental, is all.

Believe me Lakecity55, not only does old Navy here know who, how and the why's of it, so do many - MANY - others inside the apparatus now.

We know for a material fact this was Bush family, Cheney, Israel, UK top down, and the Saudi's as well as with full FBI, CIA, NSA approval and direct involvement. We know who these criminals are. NONE of us in military, civilian LE or Gov apparatus were allowed to go after ANYONE. It was all covered from tip to tail on this op.

Who was running the FBI at that time? The CIA? The NSA? Look into it... it'll come to you! Who was managing HSBC laundering the money who was the recently disposed of FBI director? Who was running an Israeli Mossad agency security company for WTC, the CEO of Securicom? Oh that would be Marvin P Bush. Rudy.... you was there hand in glove and materially involved.

Believe... many of us ex-military and agency would love to see these people publically decapitated. It's so much bigger in scale that what most folks can possibly fathom.

Jet fuel fire did not bring the buildings down. Thermite. 

The only reason we have the criminal element responsible for 9/11, (Mueller, Guiliani, Bush, Cheney, Saudis, five dancing Pharisees) is because DENIAL and the belief that 'American government is exceptional' would never do such a thing to it's own people in what was a major false flag to manufacture consent for war on Iraq..

I'm not sure I trust Giuliani.  Wouldn't surprise me if he was sent by deep state handlers to set up Trump and help take him down, albeit subtly.  Et tu, Brute?  Guiliani and Mueller covered up 9/11 together.  They’re joined at the hip and in crime/treason.  Continuing to cover up the crime/treason of the Century takes precedence over all else.  It is what they are really afraid of being uncovered.  They are all complicit.  Since Rudy suggested it might be okay for Trump to sit down with Mueller, I suspect he is a Judas rat.  No lawyer worth his salt would ever allow this to take place with a witch hunt, a corrupt prosecutor, the fact that the Constitution and the law are on Trump’s side, and the fact that there is no evidence of any kind he has committed a crime.  Trump is too damn trusting of these Judas rats.  It's his Achilles heel.  He needs to wake up and smell the napalm all around him.  These people play for keeps.  Look at their history.  They are evil and they scheme and plot and are sneaky beyond belief.  They are killers.  Not nice people.

And who was the genius/traitor on Trump's legal team who recommend Trump talk to Cohen, when they must have known the FBI and their co-conspirators were listening to everything?  This is an investigation in search of a crime, and if they can't find one, they are willing to manufacture one, because that is exactly what they have been doing from day one.

Sessions is another one you have to wonder about.  If he doesn't indict someone soon, he's deep state or has something to hide.  You can indict a ham sandwich for God’s sake, and he hasn’t indicted anyone.   WTF is going on?  What’s he waiting for -- the statutes of limitation to pass?  The Mid-term elections to be held?

That’s exactly what needs to occur for the futile system of Tyrannical Lawlessness & Political Police Surveillance State to be accepted / instituted by State onto the Serfs.  

The State has to Gas Light the populace into thinking that even a sitting President is “Guilty until proven innocent.”  And, if a President is powerless against & can be removed by a Totalitarian, Authoritarian, Tyrannical Lawless, Political Police State.  

President has to be set, that if a sitting President can be taken down.  Anyone can be Criminally Surveilled, taken, disappeared, droned, Murdered, Tortured, Rendered & never seen from again.

The Slaves won’t stand a chance.
