    Watched the first of a series called "Giuliani: What Happened to America's Mayor?"

    The rest are recorded, and I'll be watching them in the next few days.


    I had no idea Rudy Giuliani was a pretty decent human being and great U.S. Attorney back in the day (the '80s).

    He took on the NYC mob... he took on corrupt Wall Street insider traders... he seemed to be truly a New Yorker for the people.

    So yeah... what the HELL happened to that guy, to where he became Trump's personal bitch... groveling in front of the camera with the hair dye running down the side of his face??

    Haven't gotten to that part yet... but I know the guy became even MORE popular after 9/11... when he showed a lot of leadership in an incredible crisis.

    It's gonna be interesting watching how this plunge from grace unfolded.

    Just saw the 2nd of four installments.

    It basically chronicles how Giuliani went from being an immensely popular U.S. Attorney... taking on the mob and Wall Street corrupt sleazebags... to finally winning the election for NYC mayor and letting his ego shit all over at least half of his constituents. It portrays him as an egotistical person who likes to surround himself with "yes-men." Hmm... sounds eerily familiar with a bit of foreshadowing involved. Anyway... he throws himself into solving NYC's crime problem... only to become obsessed with the numbers and neglect the human factor involved. It doesn't help when you dismiss counsel from others who might just know a little more than you. But again... that's the M.O. for a couple of high-profile New Yorkers I can immediately think of.

    The next episode will cover 9/11. Can't wait to see it.

    Rudy became popular in New York because crime fell dramatically during his time as mayor. But it had already dropped thirty percent by the time he took office and had already done so all over America, in cities with Democratic administrations and Republican administrations. Nobody knew why at the time, lefties said it was due to lefty government policies and righties said it was due to tough on crime policies but that didn't explain uniform drops in crime in areas that had different policing/law enforcement policies. Turns out it was due to taking lead out of gasoline. Lead in gasoline being pumped into the air lead to significant jumps in criminality in heavily populated areas once cars became so prevalent. The world has stopped putting lead into gasoline at different times in different regions around the world and they've had falls in crime all follow the same time patterns as in America. The Middle East was the last region to ban lead in petrol and their crime drop is due to start right around now.

    Rudy was an outright racist scumbag as mayor by the way:

    It was one of the biggest riots in New York City history.


    As many as 10,000 demonstrators blocked traffic in downtown Manhattan on Sept. 16, 1992. Reporters and innocent bystanders were violently assaulted by the mob as thousands of dollars in private property was destroyed in multiple acts of vandalism. The protesters stormed up the steps of City Hall, occupying the building. They then streamed onto the Brooklyn Bridge, where they blocked traffic in both directions, jumping on the cars of trapped, terrified motorists. Many of the protestors were carrying guns and openly drinking alcohol.
    Yet the uniformed police present did little to stop them. Why? Because the rioters were nearly all white, off‐​duty NYPD officers. They were participating in a Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association demonstration against Mayor David Dinkins’ call for a Civilian Complaint Review Board and his creation earlier that year of the Mollen Commission, formed to investigate widespread allegations of misconduct within the NYPD.
    In the center of the mayhem, standing on top of a car while cursing Mayor Dinkins through a bullhorn, was mayoral candidate Rudy Giuliani.
    “Beer cans and broken beer bottles littered the streets as Mr. Giuliani led the crowd in chants,” The New York Times reported.
    Now, almost 25 years later, Giuliani continues to fan the flames of racial division. The two‐​term mayor, who has been a prominent surrogate for presidential candidate Donald Trump and is his likely choice to head the Department of Homeland Security, recently made headlines for condemning the Black Lives Matter protests as being “anti‐​American” and arguing that the term itself is “inherently racist.”
    But Giuliani has yet to condemn the blatant racism that rippled through the crowd during the 1992 demonstration.
    Newsday columnist Jimmy Breslin described the racist conduct in chilling detail:
    “The cops held up several of the most crude drawings of Dinkins, black, performing perverted sex acts,” he wrote. “And then, here was one of them calling across the top of his beer can held to his mouth, ‘How did you like the niggers beating you up in Crown Heights?’ ”
    The off‐​duty cops were referring to a severe beating Breslin suffered while covering the 1991 Crown Heights riots in Brooklyn.
    Breslin continued: “Now others began screaming … ‘How do you like what the niggers did to you in Crown Heights?’
    “ ‘Now you got a nigger right inside City Hall. How do you like that? A nigger mayor.’
    “And they put it right out in the sun yesterday in front of City Hall,” Breslin wrote. “We have a police force that is openly racist …”
    Newsday reported on other instances of racial abuse. City Councilwoman Una Clarke, a petite black woman, was blocked from crossing Broadway “by a beer‐​drinking, off‐​duty police officer who said to his sidekick: ‘This nigger says she’s a member of the City Council.’ ”
    Mary Pinkett, another black councilwoman, was trapped on the Brooklyn Bridge as her car was rocked back and forth by off‐​duty officers. The two elderly passengers in her car were terrified.
    Former NYPD officer and New York state senator Eric Adams, currently serving as Brooklyn’s borough president, told Newsday at the time that the demonstration was “right out of the 1950s: A drunk, racist lynch mob storming City Hall and coming in here to get themselves a nigger.”

    "Trump says he's 'more angry' than ever as he tries to revive White House bid"



    Well, duh! Of course he's angry. Never in history has a POTUS been more soundly rebuffed in a bid for reelection. Never in history has a POTUS been more ridiculed, humiliated, exposed, and just plain dragged through the mud as Trump.

    Hell... I'd be angry too.



    On a related topic, I keep waiting for the wheels of justice to grind Trump into a pulp and at the very least stop his asinine attempt to run in 2024. What's taking so long?

    By the way... saw the last two installments on Rudy Giuliani.

    Day-am! What a plunge!

    I'd be hard pressed to see a more meteoric rise, followed by such a steep dive.

    9/11 made temporary heroes out of two men that were unable to keep the momentum going, and plunged back into mediocrity. Giuliani, and George W.

    Well... George plunged back to mediocrity and thankfully his time was up in the White House.

    Giuliani grabbed on to Trump's coattails and became the biggest buffoon in the history of mankind.

    Instead of remembering 9/11 Giuliani... people will now remember "Hair Dye" Giuliani.

    Can't feel sorry for someone who suffers self-inflicted wounds.



    BTW... still waiting for the wheels of justice to hold both "Hair Dye" and the Orange Orangutan to at least SOME accountability regarding January 6th.

    It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

    Iconic political operative Roger Stone had civil charges dismissed last week in a Washington D.C. court pertaining to a lawsuit blaming Stone for the federally-incited violence that occurred on Jan. 6.

    “Judge Amit P. Mehta rightly DISMISSED all counts against me in a civil suit filed by 8 members of the US Capitol Police based on the events of Jan 6 in which I had no involvement beyond the exercise of my First Amendment rights,” Stone told Big League Politics.

    All of these guys from Trump on down working together to achieve the alpha and omega of the MAGA movement:

    And they did it. Down almost fifty percent! Just turn up the culture war bullshit to eleven and you can get on with the real business of the conservative movement, the thing that makes all those billionaires donate millions of dollars to get compliant politicians like Trump elected.
