Mayor Rudolph "Rudy" W. Giuliani Esq.
July 2007: "Mr. Giuliani is Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Giuliani Partners LLC, which he founded in January 2002. Mr. Giuliani was recognized in Spring 2002 as "Consultant of the Year" by Consulting Magazine.
Mr. Giuliani served two terms as the 107th Mayor of the City of New York. First elected in 1993 after a campaign focusing on quality of life, crime, business and education, he was re-elected in 1997 by a wide margin. As Mayor, Mr. Giuliani returned accountability to city government and improved the quality of life for all New Yorkers. Under Mr. Giuliani's leadership, New York City became the best-known example of the resurgence of urban America.
Prior to this, Mr. Giuliani served in a variety of law enforcement and legal positions. In 1983, Giuliani was appointed U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, where he spearheaded efforts against drug dealers, organized crime, government corruption, and white-collar criminals. From 1981 to 1983, Mr. Giuliani served as Associate Attorney General, the third highest position in the Department of Justice. In this capacity, Mr. Giuliani supervised all of the U.S. Attorney Offices, federal law enforcement agencies, the Bureau of Corrections, the Drug Enforcement Agency, and the U.S. Marshals Service.
From 1970 to 1981, Mr. Giuliani served as Associate Deputy Attorney General, Chief of Staff to the Deputy Attorney General, executive U.S. Attorney, and Chief of the Narcotics Unit of the Office of the U.S. Attorney. He also practiced law in private practice. On March 31, 2005, Mr. Giuliani became a name partner in the law firm of Bracewell and Giuliani.
Mr. Giuliani, a native of Brooklyn, New York, attended Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School (Class of '61), Manhattan College (Class of '65) and New York University Law School, graduating cum laude in 1968."http://www.giulianipartners.com/giuliani.aspx
October 2011: 'As it turned out, the captains of the new "casino economy"—the stock brokers and investment bankers—were highly sensitive, one might say finicky, individuals, easily offended by having to step over the homeless in the streets or bypass them in commuter train stations. In an economy where a centimillionaire could turn into a billionaire overnight, the poor and unwashed were a major buzzkill. Starting with Mayor Rudy Giuliani in New York, city after city passed "broken windows" or "quality of life" ordinances making it dangerous for the homeless to loiter or, in some cases, even look "indigent," in public spaces.'http://motherjones.com/politics/2011/10/homelessness-occupy-wall-street
May 2010: 'Rudolph W. Giuliani, the former New York City mayor and Republican presidential candidate, said Sunday on “This Week” on ABC that he supported Mr. Holder’s proposal. However, he also suggested that enacting it would not quell conservative criticism, arguing that it would be even better to hold suspects like Mr. Shahzad as military detainees for lengthier interrogation.'http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/10/us/politics/10holder.html
March 2010: "Mr. Giuliani also found himself under fire when he appeared on the presidential campaign trail in 2007 wearing a diamond-encrusted Yankees World Series ring. It was later revealed that Mr. Giuliani had four such rings, one for each championship the team won from 1996 to 2000. The former mayor said he bought them for a total of $16,000, far less than the rings could have fetched on the open market."http://www.nytimes.com/2010/03/04/nyregion/04paterson.html
December 2008: 'Broken window theory (BWT), first proposed by James Wilson and George Kelling in 1982, holds that the presence of disorder — in the form of broken windows, litter, and graffiti — can encourage delinquent behavior. BWT promotes a "nip it in the bud" stance toward crime prevention: Fix small problems (like litter) before big problems (like theft) have a chance to occur. Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani was a loyal subscriber to the theory. He focused on small-scale issues like graffiti, prostitution, and squeegee men to influence, and ultimately drive down, crime in a seemingly unmanageable city.'http://seedmagazine.com/news/2009/01/chaos_begets_chaos.php
June 2008: 'Separately, the McCain campaign circulated a statement by former New York City mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani that said: "Barack Obama appears to believe that terrorists should be treated like criminals -- a belief that underscores his fundamental lack of judgment regarding our national security."'http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/06/17/AR2008061702819.html
October 2007: Waterboarding has also been a flash point among Republican presidential candidates. Last week, after Rudolph W. Giuliani, the former New York mayor, said he was not sure about waterboarding because he thought “the liberal media” might not have described it properly, Senator John McCain of Arizona, who was tortured as a prisoner in North Vietnam, shot back, saying it was a torture method used since the Spanish Inquisition.http://www.nytimes.com/2007/10/31/washington/31mukasey.html
September 2007: It is a powerful message coming from the man who won global acclaim for his calm and resolve after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. But it is undercut by Giuliani's record as mayor and by his public statements about terrorism since the 1990s, which document an evolution in thinking that began with a mind-set similar to the one he criticizes today.http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/09/23/AR2007092301432.html
August 2007: NEWARK -- Since two illegal immigrants were named among the suspects in the execution-style killings of three college students here, Republican presidential candidates Mitt Romney, Rudolph W. Giuliani and Tom Tancredo have suggested that the deaths show the consequences of failures in immigration policy.http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/08/24/AR2007082402041.html
June 2007: Few GOP primary voters are African American, so any lingering tension is unlikely to have any direct effect on his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination. But Giuliani's reputation as a polarizing force in his home town could undermine his image as a unifying figure in American politics -- an image that came from his role in calming New Yorkers after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/06/09/AR2007060901420.html
June 2007: 'On the Republican side, not one of the 10 candidates on the stage in Tuesday’s debate expressed support for allowing openly gay men and women to serve in the military. Several said the current policy was working well, and Rudolph W. Giuliani, the former mayor of New York, argued that, “at a time of war, you don’t make fundamental changes like this.”'http://www.nytimes.com/2007/06/08/us/politics/08gays.html
June 2007: The politics of pardon played out last night, sharply dividing Republican presidential candidates debating in New Hampshire. Former New York mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani and former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney said that they would seriously consider pardoning Libby. 'What the judge did today argues more in favor of a pardon because this is excessive punishment,' Giuliani said. Romney said the prosecutor 'clearly abused prosecutorial discretion.' Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) said he would wait for the appeals.http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/06/05/AR2007060501275.html
May 2007: Giuliani, grounded in the intricately connected world of New York politics, has been more than adept at making the system work for his clients. They have included a pharmaceutical company that, with Giuliani's help, resolved a lengthy Drug Enforcement Administration investigation with only a fine; a confessed drug smuggler who hired Giuliani to ensure his security company could do business with the federal government; and the horse racing industry, eager to recover public confidence after a betting scandal.http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/05/12/AR2007051201270.html
November 2006: This is why Mayor David Dinkins and his police commissioners, including Ray Kelly, originally opposed giving cops semiautomatic weapons. In 1993, when they gave in, they put a 10-round limit on the clips. A year later, Mayor Rudy Giuliani and his commissioner lifted the cap. They argued that cops shouldn't be outgunned and would handle the weapons responsibly.http://www.slate.com/id/2154631/
April 2002: High profile prosecutor who served as Mayor of New York City 1993-2002.
May 2001: Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani sought to revoke city financing and evict the Brooklyn Museum because the exhibit included a painting of the Virgin Mary adorned with elephant dung. Mr. Giuliani eventually settled out of court after a federal judge ruled that his actions violated the First Amendment.http://www.nytimes.com/2001/05/16/national/16ARTS.htm

Date Fairness.com Resource Read it at: Nov 02, 2012 Hardship Strains Emotions in New York
QUOTE: Emotions, frayed after almost a week of desperation, darkness and cold, approached a breaking point on Friday as the collective spirit that buoyed New York in the first few days after Hurricane Sandy gave way to angry complaints of neglect and unequal treatment. Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, facing criticism that he was favoring marathon runners arriving from around the world over people in devastated neighborhoods, reversed himself and canceled the New York City Marathon.
New York Times Oct 24, 2011 Why Homelessness Is Becoming an Occupy Wall Street Issue
QUOTE: political protesters do not face the challenges of urban camping alone. Homeless people confront the same issues every day: how to scrape together meals, keep warm at night by covering themselves with cardboard or tarp, and relieve themselves without committing a crime. Public restrooms are sparse in American cities—"as if the need to go to the bathroom does not exist," travel expert Arthur Frommer once observed. And yet to yield to bladder pressure is to risk arrest.
Mother Jones May 09, 2010 Holder Backs a Miranda Limit for Terror Suspects
QUOTE: The Obama administration said Sunday it would seek a law allowing investigators to interrogate terrorism suspects without informing them of their rights.... [Holder] said interrogators needed greater flexibility to question terrorism suspects than is provided by existing exceptions.

Paterson falsely testified under oath during an ethics investigation into his acceptance of free World Series tickets last fall, according to the State Commission on Public Integrity, which announced on Wednesday that it had asked prosecutors to determine if criminal charges should be brought against the governor.
New York Times Dec 12, 2008 Chaos Begets Chaos: A new study supports the controversial claim that people can be morally swayed by the state of their surroundings.
QUOTE: It's not that good people turned bad, either. One goal simply surpassed another in importance. In the case of the mailbox, the desire for cash superceded the desire to behave appropriately, because others already hadn't.
Seed Magazine Nov 01, 2008 Nuclear Deterrence in the Age of Nuclear Terrorism An attack on one of the great cities of the world is almost inevitable. But with better detection technologies, a new international alliance could st
QUOTE: Given current policies and practices, a nuclear terrorist attack that devastates one of the great cities of the world is inevitable. In my judgment, if governments do no more and no less than they are doing today, the odds of such an event within a decade are more than 50 percent.
Technology Review Jul 11, 2008 Candidates Are Slow to Identify ‘Bundlers’
QUOTE: “Obama was saying he was the most transparent, but it wasn’t even on par with Bush and Cheney,” said Alexander Cohen, senior researcher at Public Citizen, a nonpartisan watchdog group that recently sent letters to Mr. Obama and Mr. McCain with seven other organizations calling for them to disclose more information about their donors. Obama campaign officials acknowledged on Thursday that they had fallen behind on their plan to update their list quarterly and that they had not added any names since January. They said about 100 of the names added Thursday should have been put on at the end of this year’s first quarter.
New York Times Jun 18, 2008 Candidates Clash on Terrorism: In Sharp Exchange, Each Side Calls Other's Position a Risk
QUOTE: In a Tuesday morning conference call with reporters, McCain advisers criticized Obama as "naive" and "delusional" in his approach to the handling of terrorism suspects after he expressed support for last week's Supreme Court decision granting detainees the right to seek habeas corpus hearings. Obama fired back, saying the Republicans who had led failed efforts to capture Osama bin Laden lacked the standing to criticize him on the issue.
Washington Post Feb 08, 2008 Mayor Accuses Realty Firms of Seeking Undue Influence

New York Times Dec 28, 2007 Too much religion on campaign trail? Candor about faith marks this presidential election season. Critics say a line is being crossed.
QUOTE: Presidential candidates of both parties have talked more openly about their religious beliefs this year than in elections past, lifting a window on some of the values that could shape their decisions in the Oval Office. But the political benefits of such candor are not always clear in a country where most Republicans and Democrats believe in separation of church and state.
Christian Science Monitor Oct 31, 2007 Mukasey Calls Harsh Interrogation ‘Repugnant’
QUOTE: Mr. Mukasey noted that Congress has not explicitly banned waterboarding by the C.I.A., though it was outlawed for use by the military in the Detainee Treatment Act of 2005. That left room for interpretation as to whether waterboarding or any other technique is prohibited as “cruel, inhuman or degrading” treatment...
New York Times Sep 24, 2007 Giuliani's Rhetoric on Terror Contrasts With His Record
QUOTE: for most of Giuliani's career as a Department of Justice official, prosecutor and New York's chief executive, terrorism was a narrow aspect of his broader crime-fighting agenda, which was dominated by drug dealers, white-collar criminals and the Mafia. Giuliani expressed confidence that Islamic extremism could be contained through vigorous investigation by law enforcement agencies and prosecution in the court system -- the same approach he now condemns.
Washington Post Aug 25, 2007 Newark Slayings Stoke Immigration Debate
QUOTE: ...New Jersey Attorney General Anne Milgram ordered all local authorities in the state to ask about immigration status after arrests on offenses including robbery, assault, rape, murder and drunken driving, and to notify federal officials if a suspect is in the country illegally.
Washington Post Aug 17, 2007 Death Grip: How Political Psychology Explains Bush's Ghastly Success.
QUOTE: the mere thought of one's mortality can trigger a range of emotions--from disdain for other races, religions, and nations, to a preference for charismatic over pragmatic leaders, to a heightened attraction to traditional mores....Barring another assault on American soil, the moment of September 11--and the reminder of mortality that it brought--may well have passed. And with it, too, the ascendancy of politicians who exploited the fear of death that lies within us all.
New Republic, The (TNR) Aug 08, 2007 When a Poll Is Not Really a Poll
QUOTE: Republican presidential candidates looking to score high in the straw poll lure Iowans to Ames with not only free tickets, but also transportation, food and entertainment…. [But] No one pretends this is a random, statistically representative survey.
Washington Post Aug 07, 2007 Fundraisers Tap Those Who Can't Say No: 'Bundlers' Look to Associates, Employees for Campaign Cash
QUOTE: for the most part, it is not illegal,[former Federal Election Commission chairman] said. The Federal Election Commission prohibits corporate executives or labor leaders from "facilitating" contributions from their subordinates. But that's as far as the language goes, he said.
Washington Post Jul 16, 2007 Campaign Contributions Change Priorities, Not Beliefs
QUOTE: there are always going to be sleazy politicians who think of donations as bribes. But these are the exception, not the rule. By looking at the issue of money in politics in moralistic terms, [Richard] Hall says, both politicians and the public fail to recognize what is truly insidious about these donations.
Washington Post Jul 11, 2007 A Senator’s Moral High Ground Gets a Little Shaky
QUOTE: Senator David Vitter [who] has been known for efforts to plant himself on the moral high ground...took a tumble Monday with the disclosure that his phone number was among those on a list of client numbers kept by Deborah Jeane Palfrey, the so-called D.C. Madam, who is accused of running a prostitution ring in Washington.
New York Times Jun 23, 2007 HuffPost Exclusive: More Lobbyists On McCain Staff Than Any Other 08 Candidate
QUOTE: John McCain, who made his name attacking special interests, has more lobbyists working on his staff or as advisers than any of his competitors, Republican or Democrat ... All the campaigns pale in comparison to McCain's, whose rhetoric stands in sharp contrast to his conduct.
Huffington Post Jun 10, 2007 Giuliani's Ties to Black New York Troubled: GOP Front-Runner's Handling of Crime and Relations With Leaders Questioned
QUOTE: [Rudolph] Giuliani's [New York City] mayoral tenure was also marked by an almost toxic relationship with African Americans in the city, a relationship that shows no sign of healing 5 1/2 years after Giuliani left Gracie Mansion .... [Karen Phillips'] dissatisfaction with Giuliani, she said, was almost entirely based on instances in which she was actually pursuing goals that were in line with his priorities, and in which his aggressive approach prompted a backlash.
