Terror Talk With Rudy ‘Tough Guy’ Giuliani

Republican presidential hopeful Rudy Giuliani’s just the guy to come out swinging against “the Muslims,” according to boosters at a New Hampshire love-in shown on this clip from the Guardian.  Notes one staunch supporter, “These people are very dedicated ... very smart in their own way,” and it takes America’s Mayor to win what Giuliani calls the “Islamic terrorist war” at hand.

Giuliani Under the Microscope

In this Politico video news report, a particularly preppy host (all Capitol Hill style, no doubt) delivers the latest about Giuliani’s alleged use of New York taxpayer funds to hook up with his now-wife Judith in the Hamptons—and as it turns out, Rudy apparently hooked Judy up with her own “police driver and city car” before she was officially known as his extramarital side dish.

Obama, Bloomberg in Mysterious Rendezvous

Barack Obama shared an emptied restaurant and about 45 minutes of conversation with New York mayor and potential presidential bombshell Michael Bloomberg on Friday. A Bloomberg aide implied the meeting was more about sharing ideas than about political aspirations, but at the very least it was a challenge to Hillary Clinton, who would love to have New York and its power brokers all to herself.

Giuliani’s Hanky-Panky: On the Public Tab?

During the early days of his romance with his girlfriend (now wife) Judith, then New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani made trips to the Hamptons, where she lived, and billed “obscure city agencies” for costs his NYPD security detail incurred while accompanying him, according to The Politico.

Deconstructing Rudy

As mayor of New York, Rudy Giuliani honed his skills in creating a public persona that obscured some of his less savory behind-the-scenes activities.  But now, Giuliani’s facing serious resistance from the likes of filmmaker Robert Greenwald, who’s turning his lens on the wily GOP candidate in a series of Web-ready shorts.

Giuliani and Wife Dump on Hillary

As if he’s already secured the nomination, Rudy Giuliani has begun to focus his vitriol on the other party’s presumptive nominee, Hillary Clinton: “I don’t know Hillary’s experience. She’s never run a city.” It’s been a long, long time since we’ve had an ex-mayor occupying the Oval Office.  Maybe Giuliani is on to something here. There just has to be some parallel between being a mayor and the leader of the world’s only superpower.

San Diego Mayor Backs Gay Marriage

Inspired by care for his daughter and an eleventh-hour decision, as he put it, to “lead with my heart,” San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders (a Republican, as a Truthdig reader pointed out) said Wednesday that he would “take a stand on equality and social justice” and come out, as it were, in favor of gay marriage.

Truthdigger of the Week: Mayor Ross ‘Rocky’ Anderson

Truthdig salutes Rocky Anderson, the Salt Lake City mayor who spoke out against the war and reminded the world that “blind faith in bad leaders is not patriotism.” Anderson welcomed Bush to his city with a fiery protest speech and these searing lines: “A patriot does not tell people who are intensely concerned about their country to just sit down and be quiet; to refrain from speaking out in the name of politeness or for the sake of being a good host; to show slavish, blind obedience and deference to a dishonest, war-mongering, human-rights-violating president.”

Mayor’s Home Run for Truth: Antiwar Rally in Salt Lake City

In recognition of Bush’s visit to the Utah capital, Mayor Rocky Anderson gave a speech to a crowd of thousands calling Bush a “dishonest, war-mongering, human-rights-violating president” whose time in office would “rank as the worst presidency our nation has ever had to endure.”  Thank you, Salt Lake City! Watch it here. Full transcript here (pdf).

Book: Giuliani Was No Hero

What if former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani wasn’t the hero everybody thought? What if, like Bush, Giuliani had ignored myriad pre-9/11 warnings about terrorism? What if he thus left the city ill-prepared to respond to such a disaster? That’s the provocative thesis of a new book written by two top-flight investigative journalists.

Tom Hayden: Mexico’s Presidential Front-Runner May Roil U.S. Conservatives

Mexico City Mayor Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who is waging a progressive populist campaign for his country’s presidency, has some plans sure to incense U.S. conservatives in border states: redrafting the free-trade aspects of NAFTA that force Mexicans to emigrate northward; turning every Mexican consulate in the U.S. into a legal aid center to defend immigrant rights; and vocal opposition to the militarization of the U.S.-Mexico border.
