    WASHINGTON — Rudy Giuliani shut down discussion about payment for the border wall during Donald Trump’s meeting last week with the Mexican president because it wasn’t part of the “ground rules” for the Mexico City visit, the former New York mayor said Sunday. Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto indeed brought up who would pay for a border wall — despite Trump’s initial claim it wasn’t discussed — but Giuliani told CNN’s “State of the Union” he snuffed out the subject quickly in favor of common ground. “I said that it was off the table,” Giuliani said. “We had ground rules...

Now, however, a plaintiff has surfaced who claims he has suffered a specific and individual injury –...

Take your business elsewhere!! And I don't care how long you've been here!!

    NEW YORK (Reuters) – How did the perp walk get such a bad rap? When IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn was pictured, sweaty and exhausted-looking late Sunday night outside the New York Police Department's Special Victims Unit, some denounced the practice as downright undemocratic. Former French Justice Minister Elisabeth Guigou called the pre-trial publicity "absolutely sickening." And another former French justice minister, Robert Badinter, said the IMF chief had been subjected to "death by media."

    In a speech yesterday to the Republican National Lawyers Association, Rudy Giuliani had plenty to say about President Obama’s foreign policy, American exceptionalism and the Sept. 11 terror attacks. But, his most ear-catching words focused on his potential bid for the presidency in 2012: “I will sure think about it. … It’s too early and I want to see how it all develops. My major goal is to elect a Republican in 2012. If it turns out that I’m the best one to do that, I can probably be talked into doing it or convince myself to do it. If...

    Obama invited former President George W. Bush and former New York Mayor Rudy Guiliani to hear him speak at the former site of the World Trade Center. Bush declined, and Giuliani’s status is unclear, but those are the kinds of guests one would invite for a major political event.

    President Barack Obama has extended an invitation to Rudy Giuliani to join him at Ground Zero during his visit to the site of the 9/11 attacks on Thursday, a source told POLITICO. Continue Reading Giuliani and former President George W. Bush both received invitations. Bush declined, with one source suggesting it was to give Obama his moment. It's unclear what Giuliani will do, but the former New York mayor — who vaulted to global fame after the 9/11 terror attacks — spent part of the day on Monday in lower Manhattan near the 16-acre World Trade Center site, and has...

    Washington Times ^ | 04/26/2011 | Ben Birnbaum
    Former New York Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani told The Washington Times on Tuesday that he is keeping “the door open” to a 2012 presidential bid, saying he might jump into the race if he believes the other candidates are unelectable. Mr. Giuliani is slated to speak next month in New Hampshire, where he finished fourth among 2008 Republican presidential candidates in the first-in-the-nation primaries. “I’m going to go to New Hampshire to speak to a law enforcement group, so that’s really the main purpose of the speech, but I keep in contact with people in New Hampshire and try to...

    On a weekend trip to the University of Arkansas, Rudy Giuliani talked about the possibility of running for president again. "My concern about 2012 is -- because I'm a Republican -- to make sure that the Republican party fields a candidate that can win. And if I think that I can help by being a candidate, then that would probably persuade me to do it, but if I can help supporting another candidate, then I'd probably do that." And there's time to figure that out. The good thing about this election -- as opposed to four years ago --...
