    Twenty years ago, Matthew Shepard was a "smart, funny" 21-year-old, no different than any other young man that age. He was an "ordinary kid who wanted to make the world a better place," his parents remembered. But in October 1998, that all changed, when the openly gay college student was abducted, beaten and tied to a fence in Wyoming. His life ended a few days later, and with it came a widespread awareness of the dangers that members of the LGBTQ community face every day. The homophobic brutal killing also served as a catalyst for progress in America's laws and...
  • Reggie Love on life as Obama’s “chief of stuff”

    **SNIP** What does a bodyman do? Dubbed Obama’s “chief of stuff” in the news media, Love explains the job like this: “I was his DJ, his Kindle, his travel agent, his valet, his daughters’ basketball coach, his messenger, his punching bag, his alarm clock, his vending machine, his chief of stuff, his note passer, his spades partner, his party planner, his workout partner, his caterer, his small forward, his buffer, his gatekeeper, his surrogate son, and ultimately, his friend.” Early-morning workouts, food and, yes, basketball helped bring them together. They e-mailed each other stat lines from top NBA point guards...
  • Rudy Giuliani Confronts His Abortion Stance With Naming of Nussle

    Washington, DC ( -- Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani apparently knows his pro-abortion position isn't going to play well in the heartland of America. Just over a week after an internal strategy memo leaked out acknowledging that fact, the mayor appointed a pro-life former congressman to help head his Iowa campaign. Giuliani tapped pro-life former Rep. Jim Nussle to be a leader on his presidential exploratory committee. Nussle had a 100 percent pro-life voting record during his last two years in Congress, according to the National Right to Life Committee. He lost a bid to become Iowa governor...

    Like a stack of scratched records, pundits repeatedly dismiss Rudolph W. Giuliani’s presidential prospects because of his “social liberalism.” True, the former New York mayor’s views on abortion, guns, and gays (despite his opposition to same-sex marriage) clash with those of many socially conservative Republican primary voters. However, socio-cons care about more than just these three important matters. On school choice, welfare reform, adoption, and quality of life, evangelicals cannot quibble with Giuliani’s achievements. His Bush-like immigration proposals are no more liberal than the president’s. Socio-cons also like to see violent criminals incarcerated and terrorists incinerated. No Rightist calls Giuliani...

    (CBS/AP) WILMINGTON, Del. -- Rudy Giuliani remains noncommittal on a possible bid for the GOP presidential nomination. The former New York mayor, however, sounded campaign-like themes in a speech to Delaware Republicans on Friday. He said the biggest question one has to ask is, "Can you really lead the country?"' The answer, he said, is that if he believes that he can do it, than he will. And if he doesn't, he'll support someone else. Giuliani said the key trait a leader needs is optimism. People follow hopes, he said, and they follow dreams and solutions to problems. The...
  • Missing Giuliani

    The antics of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad are a reminder of how wonderful Rudy Giuliani was as mayor of New York.When PLO chief Yassar Arafat attended a United Nations session, Giuliani ordered police to keep him confined to diplomatic functions. After all, who wants a terrorist roaming the streets of New York?Chavez and Amadinejab were allowed to roam around, with the latter giving interviews to news organizations. It’s a shame interviewers didn’t ask him why his nation executes gays, and why it executes women who have been raped by older men. A followup question...

    Rudy Rising His 9/11 legacy and 2008 prospects. By Deroy Murdock America’s still-vivid memories of that miserable morning five Septembers ago may be brightened by recollections of former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani’s focused, confident performance on 9/11. The ongoing goodwill his leadership generated may explain why he outpaces his potential rivals for the 2008 Republican presidential nomination. Recent polls show Giuliani waxing on the right, regardless of any misgivings conservative GOP voters may have with him on abortion, gay rights, or gun control. Among 432 registered Republicans and pro-GOP independents who CNN and Opinion Research Corp. surveyed from August...

    By now, most people around politics know that former New York Republican Mayor Rudy Giuliani would be seeking the nomination for president of the United States. A recent column by Washington's premiere political pundit, Robert Novak, only underlines the obvious: The question is not If Giuliani runs, but When he openly declares that he is running. Though Novak does not say when, I would speculate that Giuliani will announce by the end of this year. A recent Gallup Poll asked the question of its participants: Who they would opt for as the Republican front runner in the 2008 presidential election?...
  • Trashing Giuliani ...A silly documentary tries—and fails—to tar the record of America’s Mayor.

    A new documentary, Giuliani Time, premiers in New York today. Fair and balanced it’s not. Publicity materials trumpet that the film is “certain to bust open the myth of Giuliani” as America’s Mayor that developed after 9/11 and reveal his inner “totalitarian” impulses. (The think tank where I work, the Manhattan Institute, plays a starring, albeit nefarious, role as the shadowy right-wing organization where Giuliani got many of his extremist ideas.) The film’s main indictment charges Giuliani with ushering in policing tactics that led to widespread brutality against minorities. “It’s not Dinkins Time anymore; it’s Giuliani Time” is the taunt...

    Rudy Giuliani better hope that a new documentary on his mayoralty, "Giuliani Time," never makes it to cineplexes in Iowa, New Hampshire and other presidential battlegrounds. The two-hour film, which debuts May 12, casts Giuliani not as the hero of 9/11 - the role that won him acclaim as America's Mayor - but rather as the iron-fisted ruler of a city where children went hungry, the poor were forgotten and many city cops were racists. In short, "Giuliani Time" seeks to do for Giuliani what Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11" did for President Bush - namely, shine an unsparing light on...

    Livingston MD arrested on charges of impersonation and causing alarm The Livingston doctor's picture was splashed all over the New York tabloids. He made the evening news, enthralling some members of the media with tales of being the gay lover of the central figure in the McGreevey sex scandal. But in addition to his sex claims, police reports reviewed by The Star-Ledger yesterday show Michael David Miller has falsely told police he is a CIA operative and that the satellite dish on his house is used for CIA communication. In a series of phone calls to police and Essex County...

    JERUSALEM - The Israeli man at the center of New Jersey Gov. James E. McGreevey's resignation over a gay affair said in an interview published Sunday that he is straight and had no idea initially that his former boss is a homosexual. Golan Cipel told the Israeli daily newspaper Yediot Ahronot that McGreevey repeatedly made unwanted sexual advances. Cipel said he informed the governor at one point that he planned to sue him for sexual harassment, and lawyers were negotiating a settlement when McGreevey resigned last week. "It doesn't bother me that it is said I am gay, but I...
