I wonder if there are any Giuliani supporters who call Ron Paul RuPaul.
Early on in his crime career, Presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani's father, Harold Giuliani, was sent to Sing Sing prison for armed robbery.
Harold's son Rudy Giuliani, a lawyer and prosecutor, changed his party registration to Republican in December, 1980, following Ronald Reagan's election. The next month, Giuliani was nominated as Associate Attorney General. His father Harold died in April, while Rudy's confirmation was pending before the Senate. In their standard interview, the FBI asked him if anything in his background might cause embarrassment if revealed. Rudy said no.
Sworn in in May, 1981, Rudy principally aided then-Vice President George H. W. Bush in Bush's role as head of the administration's anti-drug enterprise in Central and South America. As "point man" for Bush, Rudy made frequent trips to Miami -- the hub of Bush's operations overseeing the covert Contra apparatus of Oliver North and his coc aine traffickers.
In 1982-1983, Rudy was a candidate to be U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. Organized crime lawyer Roy Cohn put his law partner Tom Bolan onto the Screening Panel for the post, created by Cohn's friend, Senator Al D'Amato. D'Amato then sponsored Rudy's candidacy for the job.
In 1985, Senator D'Amato again called Giuliani, this time to ask for reconsideration of pending charges against Paul Castellano, alleged chief of the Mafia's "National Commission." Castellano was granted bail, only to be assassinated.
The economic advisers to the Presidential candidates will debate November 9th at the National Press Club. Here, Rudy Giuliani will be represented by Michael Boskin, a fanatical virtual-economy globalist, senior fellow at George Shultz's Hoover Institution and Stanford University economics professor. Boskin is chief economic adviser to "Gaia," a virtual investment world wherein teenagers learn to be zombie speculators, while immersed in Anime and video games. Gaia Interactive announced September 17th that Boskin would chair the Council of Economic Advisors for Gaia Online, a "virtual world" with 2.5 million monthly participants engaging in more than 100,000 daily transactions. Gaia said Boskin's new Council would provide "ongoing analysis and guidance" of the virtual economy.
Boskin himself commented that an economy is an economy, regardless of whether the participants are teens in a virtual world or captains of industry in the physical world (paraphrased by CNET News.com).
1. 'I think the thing that distinguishes me on terrorism is, I have more experience dealing with it.'
2. 'I don't think there was anyplace in the country, including the federal government, that was as well prepared for that attack as New York City was in 2001.'
3. Don't blame me for 7 WTC, Rudy says.
4. 'Democrats do not understand the full nature and scope of the terrorist war against us.'
5. 'Every effort was made by Mayor Giuliani and his staff to ensure the safety of all workers at Ground Zero.'
This is a follow up, because no one is following up. Seriously, is anyone in the corporate media covering this story? It broke this morning, but so far it's been **crickets**. Rudy Giuliani ducked out of his Iraq Study Group responsibilities. You'd think that would be news, even big news. MSNBC covered it. Anyone else except the blogs? Rudy Giuliani is asked to be on the Irag Study Group, but he fails to show up because he's too busy raising money?
