    Default Was Gambino mob boss Frank Cali killed ...

    ... to send a message to Michael Cohen? Just saw some twitter reports that not long ago other Gambino family members had posted messages to Cohen saying that inmates like Trump, and hate "rats." That he may not have a long and fruitful life inside. Speculation that the Frank Cali killing is somehow related, considering that when the Trump Tower was built, the Gambino family controlled the cement trade in New York. And that there have been lots and lots of stories of Trump family friendships with mob types, including the Gambino family.

    Remember, John Gotti Jr. is out there somewhere. Maybe he wants back on top.

    when I was working as a personal valet at a nob hill 5 star hotel, John Gotti a guest there, i told me to our enemies were the same... “the funking (sic on purpose) IRS is always trying to steal our funking money.”

    the gambinos who he travel with were good tippers. Sammy the Bull patted me on my back after I got them some good neoplians and chocolate eclairs from the Italian bakery which made pastries the old way with fresh ingredients. I knew I was covered by made men after that.

    I doubt this has anything to do with Cohen/Trump. Just a feud between two-bit mobsters.

    A. You're never covered by made men unless you're a made man.

    B. Are you drinking? Cause it reads like you're drinking. FYI, I'm kinda buzzed myself ATM, so no judgement.

    C. I would never take pride in serving the likes of the mob. A job is a job and staying on the good side of an apex predator is a wise thing to do . . but to be proud of it? . . . . questionable.
    In the US this perverted idea of “blood and soil” over “constitutional principles” is the most radical and anti-democratic and anti-Conservative idea I have heard in my lifetime.

    On a related matter, how many mob bosses die a natural death due to old age?

    This Frank Cali killing is being described as similar to the boss killings of the '80s, rather than two-bit killings since. But I have no way to tell if it is true.

    But you and Tom never lived, worked in NJ NY. .

    For example every garbage service is owned by prolly sinister characters.

    So do you just pick from the only few that are there..

    Yeah, cement is prolly owned by sinister characters.

    Theres only a few, pick one.

    Does that make you a mobster.?

    ITS enough evidence for Tom to convict trump..

    It's enough for Tom to ask what people think, based on what I read elsewhere. You did notice, didn't you, that I spared you the various stories out there alleging a whole lot more "direct" mob contact... doesn't seem like I've convicted anyone...

    Half ( I know I know...a little less than half) of the people voted for Trump. Throw a rock and chances are basically even that you'll hit a Trump supporter. This is a surprise?

    Tom's theory was that the killing might have been arranged by a Trump-liking Gambino, sending a gentle message to Cohen about what Trump-liking Gambinos were capable of. Drawing "MAGA forever" on his hands to display at the court date didn't exactly blow that theory out of the water.
