    In a stunning development just 34 days before Election Day, the law firm Greenberg Traurig has announced that its highest-profile partner, Rudy Giuliani, will be taking a leave of absence because of his activities on behalf of the Trump campaign. Giuliani, who served as mayor of New York City from 1994-2001 and himself unsuccessfully sought the Republican nomination for president in the 2008 election (and yes, is the friend, co-author and hero of the highly conflicted writer of this story), has been among the most prominent surrogates and effective campaigners on behalf of current nominee Donald Trump.

    Rudy Giuliani attack current Mayor Bill de Blasio for the way he responded to the bomb attack in New York City over the weekend. Rudy Giuliani, who earned the title of America's mayor for his handling of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, on Monday excoriated current New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio for looking like he was "kind of on Mars" during the early reaction to a weekend bomb attack. "He looked like he didn't know what he was doing," Giuliani told Circa in an interview when asked about de Blasio's initial response to an attack that wounded 29...

    GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump will soon undertake another significant shift in the tone and staffing of his White House campaign, former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani said. The changes come amidst rumors that Republican leaders are mounting an "intervention" in an attempt to have Trump to accept professional political advice and embrace a less confrontational campaign style amidst flagging poll numbers and low morale in the party. Former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani, who has close ties to Trump and is a top advisor on terrorism and national security issues, rejected the description of the shift as the result...

    PHILADELPHIA — Former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani on Wednesday predicted that hackers could release incriminating emails from Hillary Clinton before the November election, or extort or threaten Mrs. Clinton if they decide to hang onto them. “I would be surprised … if the Russians haven’t hacked all of Hillary’s emails way back when they were sitting in [a] garage,” Mr. Giuliani said. “That server of hers was less secure than the DNC server that was hacked — considerably less secure.” Mr. Giuliani, speaking at a Republican National Committee event near the Democratic National Convention, was referring to the...

    "I am sick and tired of the defamation of Donald Trump by the media and the Clinton campaign. This is a good man." One of the highlights here is when Rudy says he’s breaking a promise to Trump to reveal how Trump helped New York police officers in need and insisted on doing so anonymously. I should say, that’s one of the substantive highlights. I suppose the overall highlight is the rousing nature of the speech and the way it was received on the floor. I never understood why his own campaign in 2008 failed to take off. I’m sure...

While I respect the professionals at the FBI, this announcement defies explanation. No one should be above the law....

Oh sure, the words “Trump isn’t afraid to say ‘Islamic terror’” emblazoned across its front page belong to former New York mayor and current Trump mouthpiece Rudy Giuliani, but a paper doesn’t play a quote like that without...

    In the bad old days of New York City, the mob would decide the price of erecting a building regardless of who was planning to do it. Years after the construction of One Police Plaza, the City’s Police Headquarters, when the ceiling of the main floor started to fall down an investigation found that the mob had sold the city substandard concrete. They didn’t care who they ripped off. Hard work led by former Mayor Rudy Giuliani broke the grip of the mob on New York’s construction industry and for years afterward construction boomed because of the reduced costs of...

    Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani said officer Darren Wilson should be “commended” for fatally shooting Michael Brown, an unarmed teenager, last August in Ferguson, Missouri. “A man committed a robbery, attempted to assault a police officer, and the police officer, to save his life, shot him,” Giuliani told Fox News on Thursday. “The police officer did his duty. The police officer should be commended for what he did. He did exactly what you should do.” Wilson was cleared of any charges by a local grand jury last fall. The Justice Department last week released a report on his...

    Former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani says President Barack Obama is to blame for the police shootings in Ferguson, Missouri, and other disturbing events because he sets the tone for the nation. ... Giuliani also says Obama should say the kinds of things comedian Bill Cosby used to say before he was accused of sexual assault, which Cosby denies. Cosby often exhorted black people to focus on education and parenting.

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) argued for criminal justice reform at a historically black college in Maryland on Friday, in what has become a staple of his message to young voters and minorities ahead of a potential presidential run in 2016. Paul, who has frequently nodded to Martin Luther King, Jr.’s idea that there are “two Americas,” said in his speech at Bowie State University there’s one America where citizens are free to pursue their lives freely, and one where the federal government piles on with unnecessary laws, burdensome fines and regulations, and overly strict sentencing guidelines that contribute to keeping...

    Signers include former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Sens. Susan Collins and Mark Kirk and Massachusetts Gov. Charlie BakerMore than 300 veteran Republican lawmakers, operatives and consultants have filed a friend of the court brief at the Supreme Court in support of same-sex marriage late Thursday. The amicus brief, organized by former Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman, was filed for the four same-sex marriage cases the Court will hear on April 28 that could legalize the unions nationwide. In 2013, Mehlman marshaled a similar effort for the case that overturned California’s Proposition 8, which had banned same-sex marriage...
  • America, Love It Or Leave It

    WASHINGTON -- When former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said he did not think that "the president loves America," was he right? Of course he was. The record is strewn with President Barack Obama's statements of contempt for America. In a quieter setting, I think Professor Obama would agree. He would then go on to brag about his love for higher things: for humankind, for the world community, for the planet, the green planet. Recall in 2009 when Obama told a European audience, "There have been times when America has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive toward" Europe. I...

    Former New York mayor Rudy GiulianiÂ’s statement about President ObamaÂ’s lack of love for America has set off a firestorm of denunciation. Giuliani has been accused of racism, and he has even received death threats. Defenders of Obama have evoked everything from his grandfatherÂ’s (on his motherÂ’s side) service in World War II to the two years GiulianiÂ’s father served in Sing Sing to prove either that Obama does love America or that Giuliani has no standing to issue such criticism. The ranting has obscured the reasons why so many Americans take GiulianiÂ’s remarks to heart. Starting with his June...

    Great job, Rudy Giuliani! The hero of Sept. 11, 2001 is the hero again. Rudy just said what tens of millions of Americans believe. Gee, I wonder why? Let me count the ways that would indicate to anyone who isn’t blind or a complete blithering idiot, that President Barack Obama doesn’t appear to love America, is “different” in his thinking than any other president, and certainly gives the strong impression his true feelings are anti-American, anti-Christian and anti-Israel. Before we get to exact quotes direct from Obama’s mouth in the past few surreal days, let’s start with the obvious. Is...
  • "It Hit a Nerve"

    "It hit a nerve," Rudy Giuliani observed about his widely reported insight that President Obama does not love America. Amid the uproar from the liberal media that anyone would dare question a liberal's patriotism, the former mayor of New York City is not backing away from his candid comment, telling the New York Times that "I said exactly what I wanted to say. I conveyed exactly the message that I wanted to convey." Giuliani's on-target comments hit the same nerve that has produced an uproar over the new Advanced Placement U.S. History Framework, which is teaching 500,000 of our brightest...

    Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan was more than a tad upset with former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s criticism of President Barack Obama’s patriotism, saying in his Sunday sermon that Giuliani was a “privileged cracker” and a “devil.” “Giuliani says Obama does not love America,” Farrakhan said, “And instead of apologizing, they say he doubled down, he tripled down, he said, ‘I’m not taking this back. He didn’t grow up like we grew up.’” “How did you grow up, Giuliani?” asked Farrakhan. “A privileged cracker?” After that line got enormous applause, he added: “Or I should say, a...
