A Closer Look at 9/11 Legend Rudy Giuliani

Kevin Ryan provides a good number of well-researched reasons for undertaking a much “Closer Look at 9/11 Legend Rudy Giuliani”…

Dig Within

rudyRudy Giuliani is considered a leading candidate for Secretary of State in the Trump Administration. Giuliani is actively campaigning for the position and could be named National Director of Intelligence if his appointment at State falls through. As the public waits to hear the verdict on these matters, a review of Giuliani’s history and qualifications is in order. In particular, his actions on and before 9/11 should be carefully reviewed.

As mayor of New York City on 9/11, Giuliani was in a unique position to benefit from the attacks. That’s because he gained national notoriety for his presumed valiant response that day, and he received the kind of publicity that every ambitious politician desires. Immediately after 9/11, Giuliani’s approval rating rocketed to 79% among New York City voters, a dramatic increase over the 36% rating he had received a year earlier. At a 9/11 memorial service, Oprah Winfrey called him…

  1. Thanks Jerry for sharing this post.

    The endemic corruption is so deep, it is virtually incorrigible. I worry ~ I think ‘we’ all worry ~ about the high risk ‘stakes’ of this imperial game of thrones.

    Like yourself, I envisage a day when the praxis of law is engaged so proactively and intelligently, that it really does reflect and embody the well-being of all living things, to both allow and encourage a life experience that truly expresses social integrity and ethical biological coherence.

    To get to there from here is the task we have set ourselves. My own instincts, suggest to me that the great disconnect is between the latent potential and promise of professional standards, ethics in government, systemic business conduct, regulatory and accountable controls and so forth….and, the urgent need to reconsider, reappraise and recalibrate the just proportion of wealth to work.

    Somewhere ‘in the middle’ something critical is missing. More than just an idea, it needs to be some sort of experience, or process of understanding ~ a living context that is both lacking and wanting. So that is why, personally at any rate, I feel that what is happening at Standing Rock is so important, so indicative and relevant.

    I keep saying to people with whom I have discussions about this, that it is as though time is standing still. The old (Eurocentric) clock has stopped; those received cultural reflexes no longer serve our ‘pragmatic’ purposes as though a new cosmic aperture has opened, revealing unique and unpredictable horizons, hitherto only intimated in visions and prophetic experience.

    Maybe the solution is to be sought in the biophilic architecture of our ambition, the kind of dreams and aspirations we nurture and treasure most eagerly. Perhaps we need to remind ourselves that the authentic temple is not only the human body, but the inhabited planet we indwell; & also the sacred spaces we sanctify through meaningful work and respect the most ~ through the creative spirit with which we approach them in our daily existence.


    1. Hello David,
      Like that “new cosmic aperture” term, which might translate to spiritual evolution and is awe-inspiring to think about. In response to the praxis of law, left a comment at 96-year old Bejamin Ferencz’s YouTube channel, “Nuremberg Legacy Channel” suggesting he contact The Elders (Nelson Mandela, Jimmy Carter, Mary Robinson, and other world leaders), and they join and propose the International Criminal Court/United Nations reform making it mandatory for each member state to join the ICC or face leaving the organization. We’ll see what happens, if anything… On solutions, perhaps this self-label is inaccurate, but pantheism – according to the dictionary: “1. the doctrine or belief that God is not a personality, but that all laws, forces, manifestations, etc. of the self-existing universe are God; belief that God is everything and everything is God. 2. the worship of all gods.” – might provide a good starting point. Who in their right mind would harm God?

      Have you written any books, David? If so, please feel free to share links so persons who pass this way can find and read them. If not, finding your vocabulary is a zillion times broader than mine and the depth of your thoughts are amenable to writing, it might be worthy of consideration. Heck, you’ve already written it over at Dandelion Salad’s comments area. 🙂 If a book isn’t in your sites, we’ll give the following information on self-publishing to others who pass this way. To publish print books on Amazon go to and use Createspace.com, with the assistance of many available video tutorials (formatting, technical details/specifications using Word, etc.) on Createspace at YouTube. Once the print version is completed, then one can follow instructions for the Kindle version. For ebooks, go to Smashwords.com and download (for free) “Smashwords Style Guide” (highly recommended for anyone seeking to publish an ebook – saves a ton of headaches!) to produce a decent digital book, finding tutorials for producing an ebook cover at YouTube.

      Yes, it seems that time is somewhat at a standstill, perhaps the “calm before the storm” in this historic iteration of humanity’s ongoing war between good and evil. From the perspective of eternity, it’s a guarantee that good will prevail. Thanks again, David. Peace.


  2. Jerry, thanks so much for your most fulsome and ever generous response. I appreciate the advice enormously and will follow up your suggestions enthusiastically.

    I became a PhD candidate about twelve years ago as a mature MPhil student at the U of Cardiff ~ researching the provenance of esoteric texts; but I simply exhausted my funds when my female supervisor moved from this institution to another and then on to another, so I found myself saddled with four “official” inappropriate male supervisors simultaneously (unheard of, and totally unprofessional, let alone unworkable,..) Then subsequently I was accepted by a wonderful classicist in Australia, but was misled regrettably by her university ~ that I would be eligible for either a bursary or scholarship ~ since their admin. dept neglected to point out that I would be an “off-shore” candidate; so a year later they informed me I couldn’t register…a vexing situation.

    So, due to financial constraints I’m still researching this dissertation, but as an independent scholar. The work is really about ‘generic’ esoteric ethics, more than anything else really; so it’s been quite a journey…but I intend to complete that cycle, as it is an intellectual foundation and will be a benchmark for anything else I undertake.

    ‘Western’ esoteric studies have progressed, expanded and developed enormously over recent years, largely due to the pristine example of


    The antagonistic variants of good and evil are difficult and challenging to seriously come to grips with, to say the least ~ tricky stuff…so I tend to defer to the most adequate understandings of Laozi’s Dao De Jing to resolve that eternal dichotomy…but always with the ever-growing recognition that in classical Jewish hermeneutics for example, traditionally there are four specific ways to approach this.

    So when all is ‘said and done,’ I would say it is both a question of grasping the essence of any given idea, meditating long and hard upon it, but also inviting a full experience of it as a reality of everyday existence to be completely internalized. In that respect, I honestly believe ‘universal’ humanity, of which I am a member, is/are in its spiritual infancy.

    So we do, desperately, need our ‘elders’ ~ however they may be conceived, revealed or encountered…


    1. David,
      You’re probably aware of “New Thinking Allowed” (YouTube channel) with (para)psychologist Jeffrey Mishlove, definitely in the “wheelhouse” of one interested in Western esoteric philosophy. He has over quite a long time interviewed hundreds of highly focused men and women covering a wide variety of very interesting, unique and/or esoteric topics. Best regards.


      1. Thanks again J.

        I’m aware of the work of Jeffrey Mishlove but not overly familiar with his contribution(s) ~ so I’d have to investigate more thoroughly. Generally speaking, the field of consciousness studies is so huge, I tend to be very cautious and skeptical of ostentatious publicists. I think it is wise to get well grounded in the writings of William James, who has had such an enormous influence on so many subsequent researches.

        Also, one must be wary of and alert to the involvement (post 1950’s etc.) of CIA involvement in Psi studies and anthropological field work. There are/were politicized agendas, some of which have already been shown to be less than salubrious. So we must tread carefully.

        I already prepared a brief post script, that I intended to add to my last response after you had moderated it….so here it is, unamended

        ” I’m pretty comfortable with pantheism, I’ve always liked Wm Blake’s ‘for everything that lives is Holy.’

        I did look for your comment on the Nuremberg Legacy Channel, but didn’t see it yet, do you recall which video it was? I think it is a wise proposal that doubtless Nelson Mandela would support were he still with us ~ are you affirming that in a very real sense he will always be here?

        I reckon the biggest difficulty is the dysfunctional status of the ‘permanent’ membership of the Security Council. Evidently the US believes it enjoys exemption & alleged immunity from prosecution; altho’ Polly Higgins the ecocide law advocate, told me she thought American intimidation tactics were not so exceptionally empowered under the accepted rule of law, as they might like to suppose…”


        1. It was Mr. Ferencz’ latest video, but my YT name is a disguise, chosen years ago solely to make comments (not post videos) while remaining anonymous. If you have personal contact with Ms. Higgins, perhaps she’d be interested in getting momentum behind such a UN reform. You never know… It could happen and humanity would experience world peace. What’s the worst thing that could happen.. the best..? 🙂
