Rudy Giuliani Interview



GLENN: Rudy Giuliani gets the label of liberal. And I just wanted to pass on something that we found in the Washington Post from David Greenburg a guy who is not he's a liberal. And he's very upset that Rudy Giuliani keeps being painted a liberal. And he's like no he's not.

I mean this should be a campaign commercial. Is Giuliani on yet? Is he on? Bring him up if we have him. Rudy.

GIULIANI: How are you Glenn?

GLENN: Good how are you.

"When you look at Hillary and Edwards and Obama and Charlie Rangle's program, you look at things like that, you have to say, well there's a fifty/fifty chance that three years from now taxes will be 30% higher."

GOP Candidate Rudy Giuliani

GIULIANI: I heard what you said.

GLENN: Have you read this?

GIULIANI: I'd like to take him around the country with me. People in South Carolina and Iowa that I'm not a liberal. Everybody in New York knows that.

GLENN: Have you read this from

GIULIANI: I did. I did read it. I saw your show the other night with the fellow who did the survey in London that said I was the number one conservative. But I think there are a couple of people that should be ahead of me. But I was glad they noticed the fact that I was conservative in a place where it was hard to be conservative, which means the ideas that you do have that are, you must really believe in very, very strongly.

GLENN: I remember that you were the guy who did take the elephant dung, Virgin Mary and you kind of took that on.

GIULIANI: And the pornography effort. We rezoned the city and removed pornography, specifically from Times Square but to reduce it from the city. We won that battle. We had that battle with the ACLU and others. And we won that battle in court.

GLENN: Tell me, sir, how did it come about with Pat Robertson?

GIULIANI: It came about just by getting to know each other. There's no some people they attack all these things. There's no deal or anything. We just know each other. We got to know each other. We knew each other before that. But we got to know each other really well when we were coming back from Israel together in 2003. And we had a long time on the airplane to just talk to each other.

GLENN: Did you talk at all, because you are Mr. 9/11. And for the record you didn't bring that up, I just did. But you're Mr. 9/11. If you remember right Jerry Falwell said this was punishment for gays and everything else.

And Pat Robertson at the same time came out and said, "I concur. I agree." Did you have that conversation?

GIULIANI: By that time he had already explained that was a mistake. And I think both of them did a couple of days later and said that that was not what they intended and in all of our public careers, including mine, you can find some statements that I made which, afterwards, I'd like to say that isn't really what I intended to say and I didn't mean it. And I always give the people the benefit of that.

Whether they're my friends or not I always think you get a chance to explain it. If you don't explain it, then you're in trouble.

GLENN: I was talking last night, we had some poll expert on and I said, "I think" and nobody agreed with me "I think this speaks volumes of the Pat Robertson and really the feeling in America that you know what, you've got to prioritize what we're facing." You can say, hey, I want somebody who wants to ban abortions but you know what you better prioritize Jack because I can tell you abortion clinics will be shut down when we're a radical Muslim nation, because we've been overrun.

GIULIANI: This is exactly the point that Pat made. He gave a very good statement. And I think it is exactly his reasoning, which is Islamic terrorism and their war against us is going to be with us for some time and the most important thing is we have a president who understands it and is going to keep us on offense and understands the depth of it.

And he knows that I do from all the discussions that we've had. And second he said the number two priority is we gotta get control of government spending, that to a very large extent our party lost its control of Congress because we spent too much money.

And if we don't go back to fiscal discipline as a core of the Republican Party, we're just not going to be a majority party. And finally, he said, that on these issues, these social issues, the most important thing is who do you put on the bench, because that's where the decisions are going to get made.

And Ted Olson was with me. Ted's the head of my judicial advisory committee, and one of my closest friends. And he reiterated what I said, which is that I will appoint conservative judges. And ultimately I'll end up appointing a couple hundred of them. There's a big difference between me and Hillary on the judges we'd appoint. She would leave behind 200 very liberal activist judges I would leave behind as best you can make those decisions 200 conservative strict constructionist judges.

GLENN: I don't want a conservative judge. I want somebody who understands our founding fathers.

GIULIANI: That's what I mean by it. When I say conservative, I don't mean politically conservative, particularly. I mean someone that

GLENN: Reads the constitution.

GIULIANI: Sees the meaning of the constitution.


GIULIANI: In an intellectually honest way and seeks the meaning of the laws, not what you would like it to be. It may be if you are conservative, there may be some things you would like to see the law says. It doesn't, sorry. You can't create it that way. You've got to get a constitutional amendment then.

GLENN: Let me change gears to Bernake here. He just spoke in front of Congress and he said he's concerned that there's a slow down, a significant slow down in the economy. As I'm looking at this, I'm concerned with, there's just a billion things going on with the dollars and the banking and everything else. However, part of that is as a businessman I'm a small businessman and I was going to start another business line this next year. I'm not because I don't know what the policy of this country is going to be in 13 months from now, what is the policy of this country? Are we going to be are you going to, not you, but is the government going to take away all of my money in taxes.

GIULIANI: That's an excellent point I keep making and I believe many business people, investor, foreign and domestic, are trying to make that decision about what to do with their money.

GLENN: They are.

GIULIANI: When you look at Hillary and Edwards and Obama and Charlie Rangle's program, you look at things like that, you have to say, well there's a fifty/fifty chance that three years from now taxes will be 30% higher.

GLENN: Do you really believe that?

GIULIANI: Sarbanes Oxley will not be relieved at all and we'll have much larger central government. And I believe that the things that hurt the growth of an economy are pretty simply the following: Overspending by government, overtaxing, overregulating and oversuing.

On the other hand, I believe if you can get control of those four things, that's the best way to strengthen the dollar.

GLENN: How are you going to get control of spending when it's the Republicans doing it as well?

GIULIANI: You gotta do it from the top. I just had a press conference here in Iowa, and they were asking about the dollar. And I said the single most important thing the president can do to reestablish the strength of the dollar. President doesn't run the Fed. They should be independent. They're going to make their decisions. The president could do a peg program, a reduction in spending program for his agencies immediately. Impose five percent reductions on them or 10 percent, whatever he thinks is necessary, and have them go figure out how to save money.

It worked for me as mayor of New York City. I did it every year. It held down the growth of the government. It kept the growth of the government below the rate of inflation and the growth of population. I was about the only government in the country in the '80s to do this.

It's one of the reasons that as George Will said I ran the most conservative government in the country in the last 50 years. It was my fiscal conservativism. When you think about why the dollar is weakening, it's weakening because it's a statement of people's confidence of whether we're going to have economic growth or not. And our heavy spending is hurting that. And that would be one way in which we would make real progress, reducing spending but symbolically it would say we're getting our house in order. Then I think I would pick up on one of the things in Rangle's program he wants to reduce the corporate tax. I would say, Charlie, we agree on something. Not much but we agree on that one let's do that right away because it's the second highest corporate tax in the world.

And it will be increasingly, with all these other taxes that Democrats want to add to, a reason why people move money out of the country. And it's one of the reasons why I think the dollar is weakening. People the dollar is sort of a projection of where you think the American economy is going to go. Up or down.

GLENN: You not only have personal taxes you have corporate tax but NBC running green week, a parent company, G.E. for the love of Pete, you have no idea as a consumer or as a businessman what is our energy policy going to be like, what kind of entanglements are we going to get into on a Kyoto kind of way.

GIULIANI: What kind of tariffs will be imposed.

GLENN: Oh my gosh.

GIULIANI: They want to impose tariffs. I'm probably the best person to handle this, believe me, because of being mayor of New York City. I had to deal with all of this on a smaller scale in New York. New York had numerous high taxes, tremendous amount of regulation. Lots of protection just from local things.

I had to break through all that. And I had to try to present to businesses the picture that things are going to get better, the economy's going to get better. And we made a major turnaround. And we went from a city that had 10.5% unemployment to five. We brought new companies in. We got 450,000 more jobs. The president has to convince the world that America's going to be a sound fiscally conservative growth economy.

GLENN: Thank you very much Mayor Rudy Giuliani, as always a pleasure. We'll talk to you soon.


President Trump has given us great judges on the lower court, 3 judges far superior than Roberts and other bogus constitutionalists as SCOTUS and one just may turn out to be another Clarence Thomas. He kicked the ass of ISIS and came home.

He got us out of the disastrous Iran deal, killed their head of terror, boxed them in and is currently collapsing their economy while also brokering a Mid East peace deal that everyone said could never happen. He moved our embassy to Jerusalem despite the state department, something no president has done even though they all promised.

Yes, he met with the North Korean Dictator. I hated that, but I also hated the fact that no other president did anything and North Korea kept gaining power. He has gotten Europe to pay their share of NATO, brought the Arabs and the Jews together, while smashing the choke hold of the PLO, and stood up to the Chinese instead of selling them supercomputers (Clinton), accepting lead poison in dog food (Bush), or loving the CCP and taking millions in dirty money (Obama/Biden).

He also has defended religious liberty unlike any other president at least in the last 100 years, and is a true pro-life advocate that unlike most republicans backs it up with action instead of just talk.

President Trump has also opened doors that the GOP was too wussy to even try to open with Hispanics and Blacks. He again didn't pander. He instead cleared the dead wood and opened pathways up so they could get higher education, create jobs, and not get lost in the prison system.

He also has defended religious liberty... and is a true pro-life advocate.

President Trump also took on an economy that had been beaten down, a people who had been told "you didn't build that" and, in fact, Obama and Biden claimed that the economy was "as good as it would ever get," that we would never create jobs in sectors ever again.

President Trump gave us the lowest unemployment rate since 1969 (the year I celebrated my 5th birthday,) the lowest unemployment for Hispanics & Blacks ever, and the first real growth in pay that I can remember.

President Trump then responded to the largest pandemic in 100 years by doing a couple of things I have never seen a president do:

  1. America's biggest capitalist shuts down the entire economy and knowingly puts his re-election at risk in order to save people.
  2. Closes travel with China and Europe, only to be called “racist," "xenophobic" and accused of stirring hatred. Now everyone says they were for it, but he stood alone and took the heat.

When everyone bashed him because they thought he would seize control and become an authoritarian by telling states what to do, or taking control of companies and telling them what to produce, he simply asked the free market to step to the plate, because he trusts the people of this country to do the right thing. By not taking control, he was called a dictator and a Nazi. Meanwhile he has been blamed for the blood bath created by Gov. Cuomo's nursing home policies. They said 2 million would die, best case scenario 200,000 — if we did everything right. Gee, seems that we are now in the time period they told us would be phase two, it seems as though we seem to have hit that "best case scenario" at this point.

While all of this has gone on, President Trump has fought the lies that were started by Hillary Clinton's team to smear him as a Russian operative. It was enabled by the Obama White House and included the DOJ, CIA, Dept of State, FBI, and DNI. Did I leave anyone out? Oh, yeah we are now getting evidence that members of the Pentagon may have been involved as well. Not to mention the so-called "press" and Congress who did things that would embarrass not only "Frank Underwood" but also Kevin Spacey. He has single handedly exposed the press for who they are and have always been. Because of his tweets, personal style and frankly balls of steel, he has exposed those who truly are: "Enemies of the people." I hated that when he first said it, but it is true. Any person or group that knowingly lies to destroy our president, our Constitution and the free market, are not just enemies of the people, they are enemies of the freedom of all mankind.

As someone who didn't support President Trump at first (and that is putting it mildly) I remain honest enough to judge him on his entire record. He is perhaps the only man in America that can and has stood entirely alone, surrounded by enemies, surrounded by those who took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, who are now actively engaged in destroying it and any elected president who stands in their way.

Personally, I have grown sick and tired of spineless, do nothing, old, corrupt GOP politicians who are either part of the problem or too frightened to stand alone and speak up. The vast majority are all "Sunshine Patriots." History will condemn those who did nothing but complain and whine, while others not only rang the bell, but stood and took the hits, who risked it all and lost money, reputation and perhaps, God forbid, some who gave the ultimate sacrifice to fight the evil that rages so clearly against the light.

100 years from now history will judge all of us. So will our children's children. Most will be forgotten. Those who failed to show up on the battlefield or cower in the trees, will be remembered with shame and disdain. Others like President Trump, I believe will be seen as indispensable.

DECODING the Democrats' EXTENSIVE ties to 'Big Tech'

Annie Spratt/Unsplash

The Democrats' ties to "Big Tech" and the entertainment industry have placed them in the perfect position to influence both public policy and our nation's culture. It's impossible to unweave the entire web of Democrat operatives and sleeper cells, but here are a few of the current ties between the Dems and an industry that arguably has more influence on our day-to-day lives than any other.

    When I first talked about all the problems with mail-in voting two months ago, I said the last thing we want to see is voting rules getting changed so close to an election. Yet, that is exactly what is happening right now across the nation.

    And in almost every case, Democrats are fighting to get rid of simple, common sense safeguards like requiring a witness signature, or requiring that a voter's signature on a mail-in ballot matches their signature on file. It's really an insane effort to change the rules in the middle of the game. And the effort is still going strong even though we're less than three weeks from Election Day.

    Remember how mail-in voting is supposed to save the Republic? If that doesn't sit well with you or make sense to you, you are not alone. Start the video below at the 2:04 mark and see what reassurances Abrams shares.

    "We must adapt to how we conduct our elections?!" That's practically been the Democrats' motto for 2020. Don't like the results you get from regular old-fashioned elections? Let's just create some new "norms" for voting. I mean it's been on their to-do list forever anyway and COVID is the perfect opportunity to finally get it done.

    So, how is that "adapting to new norms" thing going? Well, I'm glad I asked. Because it's the perfect time to welcome you to the inaugural Chaoscar Awards, recognizing achievements in mail-in voting chaos.

    For example, the "Every Vote Matters" Chaoscar award goes to Luzerne County, Pennsylvania where the FBI found nine discarded military ballots in a dumpster.

    The Letter from U.S. Attorney David Freed to the Luzerne County Bureau of Elections says:

    The FBI has recovered a number of documents relating to military ballots that had been improperly opened by your elections staff, and had the ballots removed and discarded…

    The FBI also found additional absentee ballot envelopes that were empty, so who knows where those ballots went.

    But wait, Stacey Abrams told us mail-in voting is safe and secure! Secure? Well, maybe not if you're in the military and sending your ballot to Luzerne County, Pennsylvania.

    The "It Takes Two to Tango" Chaoscar goes to Fairfax County, Virginia for mailing duplicate absentee ballots to 1,400 voters.

    But don't worry, election officials have it all under control. They say only one of the ballots will be counted — unless you're a Democrat. Okay, they didn't really say that, but they were probably thinking it. Officials blamed a printer problem and said people should destroy their duplicate ballot. Or, they could just send it to our next Chaoscar winner — Texas mayoral candidate Zul Mohamed.

    He was arrested last week on voter fraud charges after applying for 84 absentee ballots and having them sent to a P.O. box that allegedly belongs to a nursing home.

    Nice try.

    Next, the "You've Got No Mail" Chaoscar goes to Outagamie County, Wisconsin. Three trays of mail, which included multiple absentee ballots, were discovered in a ditch along a state highway.

    Does no one bury anything anymore? If you want to get rid of ballots, why are you using dumpsters and ditches?

    New York City wins the "G.I. Schmo" Chaoscar for sending voters mail-in ballots marked for military use.

    That's right, New Yorkers who have never served in the military have received the ballot, which says "Official Military Absentee Ballot."

    Maybe there was supposed to be a slash between the words "military" and "absentee," but voters are obviously confused and concerned about whether they're supposed to go ahead and use the ballot even though they're not in the military.

    Over 520,000 ballots have already been sent out and the New York Elections Board does not know how many of those have the error.

    The 'Every Vote Matters' Chaoscar goes to...

    We hop over to New Jersey for our next award — the "Dumpster Diver" Chaoscar goes to a mailman who has been arrested for allegedly tossing 1,875 of pieces of mail — including 99 election ballots — into a dumpster.

    What was that Stacey Abrams? I forgot...

    Next, New York City wins its second Chaoscar of the night — it's the "You Had One Job" award for sending out 140,000 absentee ballots to Brooklyn voters with the wrong names and addresses.

    These voters are supposed to complete their ballot and put it inside the official absentee ballot envelope, then sign the outside of the envelope and send it in. But these return envelopes have the wrong name and address, so voters cannot sign them unless they want their ballot to be voided.

    Many voters do not even have the right name on the ballot itself.

    And this is great — the New York Board of Elections says a "printing error" is responsible for the bad ballots. Wow — really, a printing error? Gee, how did they ever solve that mystery?

    One report on this said:

    It was unclear exactly how the city planned to handle voters who had already mailed their completed ballot back in the provided envelopes.

    That is a huge red flag, because it's exactly the kind of issue that will help fuel chaos and endless litigation all over America after Election Day.

    Next, the "I See Dead People Voting" Chaoscar goes to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for its new temporary rules allowing dead people's votes to count.

    Before this year, Massachusetts allowed early voting to start ten days before the election. If you voted early and died before Election Day, sorry, your vote would not count.

    But Massachusetts changed the rules this year because of the pandemic. Now early voting starts 30 days before Election Day. And if you cast your vote during this early window, and then kick the bucket before November 3, you can rest in total peace knowing your vote will still count!

    America — land of opportunity, even after you're dead.

    Our final Chaoscar of the night is the "It's So Crazy It Just Might Work" special achievement award, which goes to Houston, Texas. This is for an alleged ballot harvesting and voter fraud operation that — if the allegations prove to be true — dwarfs any election-related fraud we've seen anywhere so far this year.

    Two private investigators — one a former FBI agent, the other a former Houston police captain — filed sworn affidavits with the Texas Supreme Court as part of a class-action lawsuit against Harris County.

    This is a copy of the lawsuit and I want to quote directly from it, so you understand what the specific allegations are:

    Licensed Private Investigators... have been investigating ballot harvesting in Harris County for many months...
    The organization and operation of the illegal harvesting program is being used to commit fraud in the November 3, 2020 election...

    According to the investigators, witnesses have identified Harris County Commissioner Rodney Ellis... and Texas State Senator Borris Miles as leading the organization tasked with harvesting ballots. The investigators further state that witnesses have identified Houston businessman Gerald Womack and political consultant Dallas Jones as lieutenants working directly under Commissioner Ellis and Senator Miles.

    By the way, in September, Dallas Jones was hired by the Joe Biden campaign to be its Texas Political Director.

    This is a copy of the affidavit from one of the private investigators, Mark Aguirre. He says:

    I have in my possession video-taped interviews of witnesses attesting to the aforementioned people having groups of people completing thousands of absentee and mail-in ballots, including completing ballots for deceased individuals; illegally going into nursing homes, with the complicity of the nursing home staff, and filling out and forging the signatures of nursing home residents; signing up homeless individuals to vote using the ballot harvester's address then completing the ballot and forging the homeless individual's signature.

    And this is from the affidavit of the second private investigator. He says:

    [One] witness stated to me that an employee of Commissioner Ellis, Tyler James, has bragged that he could guarantee that the illegal ballot harvesting operation, with the help of mass mail-in ballots, could harvest 700,000 illegal ballots.

    Democrats successfully created chaos and now they're working overtime to change voting rules across the nation, taking advantage of friendly courts and judges to legislate from the bench. It's all about election insurance, tweaking the state voting systems to make Joe Biden's path to victory easier, including — in many states — rigging the ballot.

    While Big Tech, the Democrats and the media insist mail-in voting is safe and secure, it's already going off the rails in many states and uncovers the left-wing forces behind the massive litigation war being waged by Democrats to permanently change the way you vote.

    Democrats are freaked out about Amy Coney Barrett joining the Supreme Court. But don't let their fretting fool you, because as Glenn Beck reveals, the Left is doing just fine in the federal and state courts. In fact, the Left is thriving.

    Tonight at 9 p.m. ET, 8 p.m. CT, Glenn shows how Democrats successfully created chaos with their massive push for mail-in voting. Now they're working overtime to change voting rules across the nation, taking advantage of friendly courts and judges to legislate from the bench. It's all about election insurance, tweaking the state voting systems to make Joe Biden's path to victory easier – including, in many states, rigging the ballot.

    While Big Tech, Democrats, and the media insist mail-in voting is trustworthy and there's nothing to see here, Glenn exposes how mail-in voting is already going off the rails in many states and uncovers the left-wing forces behind the massive litigation war being waged by Democrats to permanently change the way you vote.
