    Junior Gotti was 'sick of this life,' radio show host Kuby saysNEW YORK -- John "Junior" Gotti said in 1998 that he was "sick of this life" and would plead guilty to criminal charges, a lawyer who co-hosts a radio show with Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa testified Monday at Gotti's mob trial. The testimony by Ron Kuby, a veteran civil rights attorney, was intended by defense lawyers to boost Gotti's argument that he had rejected life in the Gambino crime family when he pleaded guilty in 1999 to racketeering charges.... "He told me he was sick of this life,"...
  • Hillary's Media Hidden Communist and Criminal Friends "-VANITY"

    Even at this late date in the presidential race, a few things stand out to those who have followed Hillary Clinton's career as a Marxist sympathizer and greedy politician/foreign policy Conan "The Destroyer" type. It is the refusal of the mainstream media and even some of the conservative media, to really dig into her past and even open actions to see things that would greatly disturb an honest, educated person, namely her accepting large amounts of money from Organized Crime and her relationship with a woman who gave all appearances of being a Cuban propaganda asset at the least, and...

    Barack Obama stands on the brink of capturing the presidential nomination in large part because of Democratic Party reforms initiated by the civil rights and anti-war movements of the 1960s -- movements in which Hillary Clinton's top strategist, Harold Ickes, was a key player. When Obama was barely three, Ickes took part in Mississippi Freedom Summer, helping the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party send a primarily black delegation to the 1964 national convention in Atlantic City. After the Freedom Democratic delegation was denied seating by the virtually all white male Democratic Party establishment, Ickes -- then 24 -- went on to...

    Thirty years ago Wednesday, shots rang out in front of Sparks Steak House in Midtown, leaving then-Gambino crime boss Paul Castellano dead in the gutter, and signaling the rise to power of John Gotti who would soon become the most famous gangster in America. It was also a development, according to mob experts, that ultimately speeded up the demise of the five mob families in New York City. "It was one of the most singular acts that altered the existence of the New York Mafia," said Phil Scala the retired head of the FBI squad that investigated the Gambino family....

  • Since Obama can't handle ISIS, what say we outsource the job to the mafia?

    A significant majority of the country recently spoke up in a NY Times/CBS poll saying that they had essentially given up hope that the President was going to figure out what to do about the JV Team. These perceptions were likely buttressed a bit when the White House informed us that ISIS was largely “contained” just hours before they lit up Paris like a pinball machine. So maybe we need a new approach? Anonymous apparently declared war on the terrorists recently, though aside from ruining their credit rating I’m not sure exactly what they’re going to accomplish. But lo and...

    The son of a New York mob boss has given Islamic State a stark warning, saying if they are planning any attacks in New York, they will have to contend with the Sicilian mafia. The notorious crime syndicate say they want to do their bit to protect locals. Giovanni Gambino, the son of a key figure in the Gambino mob organization, says the mafia is in a much better position than security bodies, such as the FBI or Homeland Security, to give New Yorkers the protection they need. “They often act too late, or fail to see a complete picture...

    HILLARY'S SECRET WAR The Shadow Team Posted: July 12, 20051:00 a.m. Eastern Editor's note: The following is an eye-opening look into New York Times best-selling author Richard Poe's revealing book, "Hillary's Secret War." Whereas Edward Klein's book on the New York senator reveals previously unknown aspects of her personal life, Poe's expose focuses on how Hillary Clinton and the left's "shadow government" have labored to put her and her far-left agenda in the White House by controlling the still-uncensored flow of real news to Americans via the Internet.If that sounds too fantastic to be true, read on.

    When Gambino boss John Gotti literally rotted to death in prison from throat cancer in 2002 at least one mobster shed no tears. Former Gotti associate Peter "Bud" Zuccaro testified yesterday at the racketeering trial of John Burke that the Dapper Don's cartoonish swagger violated omerta -- the code of silence -- which turned the Mafia from a secret society into a public circus which "'ruined everything' for wiseguys" as reported by John Marzulli for the Daily News: "There was no love lost for me," Zuccaro testified in Brooklyn Federal Court. "He publicized everything that was going on," he said...

    The Mafia is a degenerate organization which exploits human misery for criminal profit, and even children are not beyond the reach of its dirty hands. For decades the Mafia has been the principal producer and distributor of kiddie porn, and among the key figures in this racket was Gambino capo Robert DiBernardo who was a top lieutenant to family boss Paul Castellano. The pair would meet each Friday at Castellano's Staten Island mansion to gloat how filthy rich they were getting from their ungodly crimes. In 1986 federal postal inspectors discovered cartons of magazines seemingly depicting underage boys "engaged in...

    The FBI obtained evidence against the teen prostitution ring allegedly operated by the Gambino crime family through a snitch who had developed a conscience as reported by Alison Gendar for the Daily News: The informant made more than 40 recordings, capturing up to 200 hours of conversations - some of the ammo behind this week's indictment of 14 wiseguys. He went to the feds and betrayed his associates because he didn't want to get in any deeper with trafficking underage girls through craigslist, a source said. The tapes include one of the Gambino crew members telling a 15-year-old prostitute how...

    NEW YORK It is perhaps the most intriguing unsolved mystery from the gaudy gangland career of John Gotti: Whatever happened to the neighbor who accidentally ran over and killed the mobster's 12-year-old son and then vanished? According to papers filed this week in Brooklyn federal court, John Favara was shot to death on orders of the outraged Gambino crime family chief and his body was dissolved in a barrel of acid. Authorities said a cooperating witness identified Charles Carneglia, a 62-year-old former mobster, as the perpetrator in the 1980 incident. The court documents said Carneglia told another informant...

    [mugshot] Palermo, 3 April (AKI) - The deportation of former Mafia boss Rosario Gambino from the United States to Italy has been delayed, sources told Adnkronos. The 65-year-old Gambino,(photo) cousin of Carlo Gambino, boss of the Gambino crime family, has been sought by Italian authorities since 2001, when a request for extradition was originally denied by US judges. Eleven attempts for his extradition were rejected by US authorities on the grounds that a law known as '41-bis' could be result in Gambino being tortured in Italy. The '41-bis' article of the Italian penitentiary act gives power to the minister...

State prosecutors separately charged 26 others with running a gambling ring that took nearly $10 million in...

    Is the U.S. Failing in Afghanistan? It was malice in wonderland at the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Thursday as Bush Administration envoys insisted things are getting better in Afghanistan, while angry lawmakers from both parties cited facts and figures showing just the opposite. Even the senior Republican on the panel, Senator Richard Lugar, found the Administration's claims wanting. "I'm not sure that we have a plan for Afghanistan," he said. Long seen as the "forgotten war" eclipsed by Iraq in U.S. priorities, Afghanistan is in the Washington spotlight this week with the release of three independent reports concluding...
