Luke Rudkowski hits the streets of NYC to find out where Obama supporters really stand on his policies. Now he did this in an underhanded way where the policies where presented to be Romney’s, but this was only done to get an honest opinion. The reactions when the truth was uncovered varied but they were very telling to say the least.
Luke Rudkowski asks NY Congressman and Romney representative, Peter King for his insight on how Mitt Romney should handle the inheritance of Obama’s kill list should he become president. Peter King touts the kill list as “totally right, totally Constitutional” as he quickly becomes angered and derogatory towards Luke.

Luke Rudkowski attempts to question Obama’s Senior Campaign Advisor, Robert Gibbs on the Obama administration’s appeal to keep the indefinite detention provision of the NDAA. With no response about the NDAA, Luke later asks Robert Gibbs on how President Obama will defend having a secret kill list in the debates. Gibbs gives a standard response on the administration doing what it has to do to handle the threat of Alqaeda. Sierra Adamson then follows up by questioning if there is justification for killings such as Anwar al-Awlaki’s 16 year old son who was an American citizen, to which Gibbs lays the blame of his death on Anwar al-Awlaki not being a responsible father.
Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, the son of Anwar al-Awlaki, was a 16 year old American citizen born in Denver. He was killed in October 2011 in Yemen by drone strikes that were separate to those that killed his father. From TIME.
Senator Charles Schumor refuses to offer any explanation when questioned on his vote for the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which gives the President the power to indefinitely detain American citizens without charge or trial.
After the debates, Luke Rudkowski and Sierra Adamson do their best to get answers out of Senior Strategist for Obama’s re-election campaign, David Axelrod. David clearly was very uncomfortable with the questions raised to him and decided to ignore them and leave the spin room when asked about Obama’s kill list.
Last night at the presidential debate at Hofstra University, Luke Rudkowski got a chance to talk to Obama’s representative congresswomen Debbie Wasserman Schultz in the Spin Room.
