“He won’t go after the Chicago mob. Guess why.”

Of course it is obvious why, but he needs to be asked about this under oath in front of a televised House subcommittee hearing.

I guess the Russian mob in Queens was a little too bad.

Okay, now that Holder has made a phony show of offing the Italians, how about if he tackles the ghastly crime in black neighborhoods? Black crime kills more people in a week than the Mafia kills in a year.

Politicians are not about saving a few precious children..they are about accumulating power for their friends. Those who are about helping humanity are being used by the power brokers. International (see..we don't give a crap who your daddy is or what your silly laws are) totalitarians are in charge of the peoples house. The sooner the people understand this..the better off we will all be.

There have been many announcements of the crippling of the Five Families for decades now.

Funny, they’re still there and have been for over a century. The Mafia itself is 350 years older than this nation and isn’t going anywhere, no matter how many US Attorneys thump their chests and crow.

Perhaps because he doesn’t want to “disappear” like Jimmy Hoffa?

At least the Mafia keeps theirs internal.

Or as Bugsy Siegel said, “We only kill each other.”

People will never wake up as long as their thoughts are dominated by football and basketball. These will forever remain children.

Which is better than Japan, where the men are encouraged to act like infants, right down to wearing diapers and carrying giant stuffed toys in public. (I’ve seen both in Kyoto and Tokyo; it’s very common.)

This is a great way to control a potentially dynamic—and dangerous—people.

The Real Headline?

FEDS POP AGED GOOMBAS!
Now Safer for Colombian, Russian, Chinese, Albanian
Mobs To Operate Without Interference.
Street Drug Prices to Moderate

Big Pussy, Paulie, and Tony go down! They never could figure out that Cell Phone and Computer Cyber bullshiite. "Put the money in Lichtenstein? WTF is a Lichtenstein?"

Sonny Boy Franzese (age 93) gets 8 years. Whew! Now I can walk home from school in Brooklyn? But where am I gonna get my sports action down?

Keep that gangster soap opera going, men! Dirty Little Secret: While the FEDS can always claim to be smarter than the Goombas, they ain't got a prayer against the Russkis and the Chinese, and they're afraid of the Colombians and Albanians.

The timing of the raid and the announcement was meant to try to take the visit of the leader of China off the top of the news list, in terms of opinions and questions that could be asked about China and our relationship with China; instead the visit will be reported, without much comment, so more time can be devoted to the “achievement” of O’s Justice Dept.

[Most likely the raids are the final act in a many-years long process of building the cases.]

Of course not. I just want these POS to have to squirm and to have their lies put on the record for future reference.

One has to wonder if they direct this much effort, plus their big media blitz on jihadist & communist sleeper cells.

Arrests made in NY, NJ, and RI....Isn't Delaware right in the middle of those states? Why no arrests there? Is the Wheeler murder somehow a reason for the delay....Still working wiretaps?

Nothing would please the Obama-Holder thugocracy more than to have a shooting war between rival mobsters, bouncing from Chicago to NY and back again. Remember, their theme is ‘never let a good crisis go to waste’. And when they can’t find a crisis, they will engineer one in order to carry out the rest of that dictum: ‘It allows you to do things you otherwise couldn’t do.’ The democrat party/world order federal oligarchs need violence in order to squelch the non-violent, well-armed citizenry, using the already arranged and trained platoons of well armed and hostile to independent thinking ‘state police force’.

Delaware borders NJ, but it’s not “right in the middle” of NY, NJ, and RI. Connecticut is, though, and certainly has its share of organized crime.

.

"Zero" and Eric Holder helping the Chicago Mob ... that was my very FIRST opinoon about this news story ...

Of course, this "raid" isn't designed to DESTROY the New York Mob ... merely to exact "negotiation" points vis-a-via the Chicago Boys ...

One the "deal is made" ... the NY Guys are set free ...
