CORRECTION, May 27, 2024: The May 17 party was held in Palm Beach, Florida. An earlier version of this article gave a different location.

Rudy Giuliani dared them to come and get him. And they did.

On May 17, Giuliani was having a pre-birthday bash in Palm Beach, Florida, to celebrate his then-upcoming 80th birthday, which was May 28, according to NBC News.

For a while, the party hosted by Arizona Senate candidate Kari Lake adviser Caroline Wren was a blast, with the former New York mayor belting out the Frank Sinatra classic “New York, New York.”

The mood was just right for Giuliani to share his thoughts on social media.

“If Arizona authorities can’t find me by tomorrow morning; 1. They must dismiss the indictment; 2. They must concede they can’t count votes,” the former federal prosecutor said in a since-deleted post on X.

The message included a photo of Giuliani and six other people.

The backstory: Giuliani, who was an attorney for former President Donald Trump, had been indicted 18 days before the party in Arizona for his role in fighting the results of the 2020 election, but the posse trying to serve him never caught up with him.

But with all the digital clues in the world at their disposal, Giuliani was served, leading to Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes chortling on X: “The final defendant was served moments ago. @RudyGiuliani, nobody is above the law.”

Giuliani representative Ted Goodman said being busted at a party was no big deal.

“The mayor was unphased by the decision to try and embarrass him during his 80th birthday party. He enjoyed an incredible evening with hundreds of people who love him — from all walks of life — and we look forward to full vindication soon,” Goodman said.

The New York Post said the interaction was not without drama, with some guests still partying with Giuliani screaming and one woman crying as he was handed the papers.

Wren thought the timing was in bad taste.

Will the allegations against Giuliani hold water?

“While crime in Arizona is at an all-time high, the Arizona [AG’s] office felt it was a good use of resources to send multiple agents across the country to storm an 80th birthday party like it was Normandy,” she said.

The Post said that according to a video shared with it, Giuliani tried to fire up the crown on the subject of the presidential election.

“This time we can make no mistakes if we want our country back. Do you want your country back?!” he asked.

“Then we got to work like hell from now until Election Day and, who knows? Maybe after, which I learned. But they are not taking this country away from us,” the former mayor said.


A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:

 

I heard a chilling comment the other day: “We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” 

 

That wasn’t said by a conspiracy theorist or a doomsday prophet. No, former U.S. national security advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said that to the founder of The Western Journal, Floyd Brown.

 

Gen. Flynn’s warning means that the 2024 election is the most important election for every single living American. If we lose this one to the wealthy elites who hate us, hate God, and hate what America stands for, we can only assume that 248 years of American history and the values we hold dear to our hearts may soon vanish.

 

The end game is here, and as Benjamin Franklin said, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”

 

All of this means that without you, it’s over. We have the platform, the journalists, and the experience to fight back hard, but Big Tech is strangling us through advertising blacklists, shadow bans, and algorithms. Did you know that we’ve been blacklisted by 90% of advertisers? Without direct support from you, our readers, we can’t continue the fight.

 

Can we count on your support? It may not seem like much, but a Western Journal Membership can make all the difference in the world because when you support us directly, you cut Big Tech out of the picture. They lose control. 

 

A monthly Western Journal Membership costs less than one coffee and breakfast sandwich each month, and it gets you access to ALL of our content — news, commentary, and premium articles. You’ll experience a radically reduced number of ads, and most importantly you will be vitally supporting the fight for America’s soul in 2024.

 

We are literally counting on you because without our members, The Western Journal would cease to exist. Will you join us in the fight? 

 

Sincerely,

Josh Manning
