BBC Video... Donald Trump and the MAFIA
#1
The BBC can get away with investigative reporting of American mobsters as American media can't. It is old (four years old)...



   

Trump was deep in the pockets of mobsters, and one of his associates (Felix Sater) was involved in a pump-and-dump stock market fraud. 

(Basically, insiders push a stock to suckers while overstating its value and sell it off only to take the money and run, leaving behind burned investors. This is one of the most flagrant frauds in the stock market, and people go to prison for this).

Trump said that a deal is a deal, which prevented him from dropping his involvement with the pump-and-dump crook

In the grand world of assigned names, I've often wondered why no clever Democrat chose to name him Mafia Don.  It works on so many levels.
Intelligence is not knowledge and knowledge is not wisdom, but they all play well together.

The Mafia has fronts that tell people that attacking mobsters with Italian surnames for being mobsters is an attack on  honest, family-oriented, hard-working Italian-Americans who are in fact honorable people. The mobsters are heavily involved in hijacking, drug trafficking, prostitution, loan-sharking, and illegal gambling. 

To this I say "Bullhist!" I have seen enough images of mobsters to recognize that they are anything but the honest, family-oriented, hard-working people that most Italian-Americans that I know are. Mobsters are lazy, destructive, conspiratorial thugs out for easy money and capable of killing anyone who gets in their way.

In the politically-correct word, the word Mafia is an ethnic smear. Is "Nazi" an ethnic smear when it refers to gangsters who took over a country and turned its state apparatus into a criminal enterprise?

OK. my favorite cinematic depiction of Italian-Americans is Moonstruck, which lauds successful businesspeople and Italian culture.  No mobsters or sociopaths. Contrast Goodfellas, a great movie about the Mafia as told (supposedly) by the damnable Henry Hill who talks about "the Life" -- a life in a world full of morons in which people die if they get in the way or welch on promises (like paying off loan-sharks). 

Trump is also heavily involved with the Russian Mafia.
