  • Get Your Irish Up This St. Patrick’s Day By Watching These 10 Irish Gangster Dramas

    In the fifth century Saint Patrick brought Christianity to Ireland and drove the snakes out of the Emerald Isle. Fifteen centuries later we celebrate his memory with green milkshakes, green beer, and, if you mix the two, green vomit. Oh yeah, and parades. They’ve been celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in America since the 1700s and as the saying goes; everyone’s a little Irish on St. Patrick’s Day. Well, except for Italians and the Scottish, that is. Before becoming presidents and late night talk show hosts, the Irish faced prejudice as one of America’s first immigrant groups. And like others denied...

    Hamilton, NJ (FOX5NY) - Authorities in New Jersey are investigating the death of a man who was found in a tanning bed at a gym. It happened Monday in a Crunch Fitness on South Broad Street in Hamilton. Police say that the body of Nicholas Ricigliani, 27, of Hamilton was found in the tanning-bed room by an employee of the gym. Investigators said that there was no indication that foul play was involved but did not elaborate. Ricigliani's body was transported by the Middlesex County Medical Examiner's Office to determine the exact cause of death. The Hamilton Police asked that...

    Artifacts connected to some of the nation's most notorious gangsters are being auctioned this weekend. A handwritten musical composition by Al Capone, a letter written by John Gotti, and jewelry that belonged to Bonnie and Clyde are among the items up for bid Saturday in the "Gangsters, Outlaws and Lawmen" auction in Cambridge, Massachusetts, by Boston-based RR Auction. The musical piece entitled "Humoresque" shows Capone's softer side. Written when Capone was in Alcatraz in the 1930s, it contains the lines: "You thrill and fill this heart of mine, with gladness like a soothing symphony, over the air, you gently float,...
  • WikiLeaks Reveals How Billionaire 'Progressives' Run The Democratic Party

    11/03/2016 5:04:05 PM PDT · by ameribbean expat · 30 replies
    Among the curiosities spewed from John Podesta's email by WikiLeaks is an intriguing memo to a group of billionaires that outlines the real goals of the Democratic Party's progressive wing. Turns out they don't want to rig an election, they want to rig the whole system — demographics, politics, the media, everything. The idea that the Democratic Party is the party of the "little man," as the old term would have it, is one of the great fallacies of our time, as this memo clearly shows. The Democratic Party has been captured by the interests of a handful of left-leaning...

    CLICK HERE In July of 2016, Brian Ball AKA mainestategop sat down in a Food court at the Northridge mall in Chicago to interview two men who belonged to the notorious Anti-Racist Action Antifascista Chicago South side gang. This Marxist street gang is the least known of Chicago's many gangs but it is among the most dangerous and lethal. ARA/Antifa has chapters all over the United States and Canada mainly in the upper and eastern portion of the mid-west. They attack neo-nazis, racists and anyone who doesn't agree with them including conservatives and libertarians. The Two men also involved in...

    The 2016 Miss USA Pageant is over and the winner has been crowned, but there is still plenty of outrage over one of the questions posed to a contestant. “With Hillary Clinton expected to surpass the delegate count needed to win the Democratic party nomination, my question to you is: If the election were held tomorrow, would you vote Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump for President and why would you chose one over the other?” judge Laura Brown asked Miss Hawaii, Chelsea Hardin. The audience at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday began to boo before Brown even...
  • Chase freezes man's bank account because his dog's name, 'Dash,' looked like 'Daesh'

    Bruce Francis transferred some money to his dog walker to pay for services to his pit bull, and wrote the dog's name, "Dash," in the notes field. The processors at Chase Bank thought that Dash might be a sneaky way of spelling Daesh (which is the mocking, insulting nickname used by critics to refer to "ISIS"), decided that this was possible terrorist money-laundering, and stopped the payment, froze his account, and notified the Treasury Department that he was a suspected terrorist. It's hard to know what's stupidest about this: that the bank thought that Daesh was the kind of thing...

    According to the Constitution, the legislature is the first and most powerful branch of government. And yet, many believe -- on the left and the right -- that the institution has atrophied. By all accounts, House Speaker Paul Ryan is eager to change that. He has his work cut out for him. At the Republican congressional retreat in Baltimore last week, I participated in a panel discussion about how to revive Congress' traditional role. It was off the record, but I can certainly repeat a story I told. When my father was in the Army, he was stationed in Japan....

    Eight stabbing victims were hospitalized and six suspects were in custody Sunday following a predawn melee that police were investigating as gang-related. Officers responded to a 1:23 a.m. report of a stabbing incident on the 500 block of East Sycamore Street, Anaheim Police Sgt. Ben Starke said. Police found eight stab victims -- a group of males and females -- and obtained a description of a white Toyota Camry last seen escaping eastbound. As the call went out, one of the responding officers spotted the suspect vehicle and called for backup. Multiple units surrounded the car at Lincoln Avenue and...

    * Football players boycotted, and essentially forced the tumbling of Mizzou’s power structure * All across the country, college administrators are taking notice and some are scared * The power dynamics in a billion dollar industry are changing COLUMBIA — The intention, presumably, was to show strength and solidarity. On the surface, Missouri's two most powerful athletics officials did that in a press conference here on Monday. Gary Pinkel, the football coach, talked of supporting his players. Mack Rhoades, the athletics director, talked of using an extraordinary last few days to improve life on campus. But underneath all of...

    OKLAHOMA CITY — Flashing lights pierced the black of night, and the big white letters made clear it was the police. The woman pulled over was a daycare worker in her 50s headed home after playing dominoes with friends. She felt she had nothing to hide, so when the Oklahoma City officer accused her of erratic driving, she did as directed. She would later tell a judge she was splayed outside the patrol car for a pat-down and then made to lift her shirt and pull down her pants to prove she wasn't hiding anything. She described being ordered to...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)BALTIMORE —One of the men fatally shot over the weekend has a well-known and notorious father. Ronnie Thomas III, 22, is the son of the star of the DVD "Stop Snitching," put out in 2004 in Baltimore to discourage witness cooperation. Baltimore's homicides rarely happen in isolation, but are often connected to some other incident, like a long-running grudge, payback, rivalry or retaliation. It was a weekend cookout at Belair Road and Sinclair Lane that ended early Saturday morning with the city's 41st and 42nd homicides in the month of May. One of the two men killed was Thomas. Thomas'...

    As members of the Democratic Party that birthed Jim Crow and the Ku Klux Klan embrace the Thug Life, gangsters are now officially cool Democrats in riot-torn Baltimore really like gangsters. As radicals and other criminals reduce their once-great city to ashes, left-wing politicians are defining deviancy down. They just can't stop saying nice things about gangsters and when they occasionally slip up and say accurate things about them, they promptly apologize for speaking the truth. That's the way Democrats in Baltimore roll. As the rule of law is dynamited, they genuflect before them, salute them, and pose for photographs...

    The Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms is asserting authority to block the publication of whistle blower John Dodson’s book The Unarmed Truth: My Fight to Blow the Whistle and Expose Fast and Furious. The book ban was issued by Deputy Ethics Official Greg Serres on the grounds that supervisors can deny outside employment “for any reason.” Dodson writing a book on his own time is considered “outside employment.” “Dodson is seeking to profit from knowledge he gained while being employed by the ATF,” Serres said. “It is the agency’s contention that all knowledge gained on the job belongs to the agency....

    It is very difficult to ignore accusations of phoniness from the master of all things phony who has dedicated his entire life to one phony scam after another. But when this unprecedented level of criminal abuse of power is so flagrantly dictated from the most powerful man in the world, good Americans should be quivering in our boots. No, Mr. President, those are not phony tears from Brian Terry’s mother. Those are real tears, unlike your constant phony blather about caring about the middle class as you continue your well-orchestrated kamikaze economic swan dive for the average American family. And,...

The eight-page publication has been distributed among the Yamaguchi-gumi, a sprawling syndicate believed to have about 27,700 members, in a bid to strengthen unity in the group, the daily Sankei Shimbun reported.

    Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Sunday proposed a new bipartisan “Gang of Eight” to draft a bill to create guidelines for future investigations of media leaks by the government. “I proposed along with [Sen.] Lindsey Graham [R-S.C.], we’ll be announcing that we have four Democrats, four Republicans, another Gang of Eight,” said Schumer on CBS’s Face the Nation. “I love these gangs of eight I guess.” Schumer said the bipartisan group will “introduce “legislation that sets up rules where… if the government wants to go to a member of the press and say you have to divulge your sources and...

    Los Zetas is a sadistic cartel in Mexico which apparently has convinced some that because it genuflects before the Catholic Church it must fear God as reported by Damien Cave for The New York Times: "it's true that for all their infamous cruelty -- beheadings, kidnappings, the mass murder of 72 Central and South American migrants in 2010 ­ -- the Zetas are also known for their respect of the Catholic Church." Of course, religious superstitions never should be mistaken as genuine faith, and sometimes the dirty devil hides behind a pious front. Frankly, with respect to Los Zetas and...

    If you thought lawyers are sworn to uphold the law and tell clients NOT to do wrong, YOU are wrong. “The allegations come just days after Righeimer accused unions of orchestrating a botched attempt to have him arrested for drunk driving. The common thread, the council members said, was controversial law firm Lackie, Dammeier & McGill, which does labor contract negotiations consulting work for police unions. The law firm had posted on its website a slew of bullying strategies to secure lucrative labor contracts, the Orange County Register reported earlier this month.”

    Attorney General Eric Holder rejected contentions that internal Department of Justice memos in which the phrase “Fast and Furious” appears mean that the Mexican gun-running scandal was known to Department of Justice (DOJ) higher-ups at an early date. The phrase, Holder insisted referred to the movie series. “Everyone at the DOJ is a big fan of the ‘Fast and Furious’ movies,” Holder said in a House Judiciary Committee hearing this past week. “The fast cars, the sexy babes, the wonton violence—are hypnotic in their effects on me and my staff. Vin Diesel’s screen presence is just awesome. So, it’s only...
