Tonight we return to history.
In this moment of retiring Justice Kennedy, the shady dealings of his offspring, & the onslaught of judges that "Cocaine" Mitch & Donnie "Two Scoops" are appointing, I've been asked to do a piece on the Mob & judges.
"But, Your Honor..."
1/ If you have a pulse, you're aware of some basic mob tactics (& I hope I've helped to sort lore from reality).
The most basic tactic of all is to compromise law enforcement & politicians.
This is how one can run an illegal empire.
But the jewel of all jewels to compromise...
2/ ... are judges.

I'll start with some historic examples, thanks to these source texts, and archived articles I will attach with their screenshots.
3/ Now, mobsters love to talk about the judges they have in their pockets. Most of mob history is oral and full of gossip & conspiracy. But there are key individuals, & their intersection w/judges they may have compromised is discoverable if you track them carefully...
4/ Like this shi*tbird, from early 20th century: SAM INSULL.
Chicago knows him well. And he bought himself some judges.
5/ Or, we can jump forward 50 years to the Nixon era and Bebe Rebezo.
And then that last screenshot - on the case that gets under my skin like no other.
Not just the light sentence for Marcello to begin with, but reducing it as well, were CORRUPT to the core.
6/ There's a lot more case study, but you get it. The mob has its judges.
They GROOM them, often, from within the family.
You know my saying, #FollowTheLawyers? Well, that leads us to judges as well.
In fact, it leads us right to a now-retiring judge on the US Supreme Court...
7/ To get to him - to truly see it, you gotta through the mobsters. That's how it works.
And Justice Kennedy's mobster was his daddy's mobster: the "Governor of the Legislature" - "The Boss of California" - the "Godfather" of Mickey Cohen.
8/ Samish was a sh*tbird of the highest order. He did the kind of racketeering that Fred Trump and Roy Cohn were so good at: lobbying a state legislature by compromising the locals. THAT is how you get sh*t done.
Samish represented the liquor companies. Because... of course...
9/ If you know your mafia history, you know it all goes back to those bootleggers.
(psst... there is a method to the order of the bricks I'm laying down).
10/ Samish represented all the mob ops, actually. And had a slush fund. And had the attention of the Kefauver Committee.
Take a gander.
11/ I mean... Samish was just a HUGE mobster, on every level.
He was.
There is no disputing it.
And like all big mob bosses, he had his own attorney. Someone whose solo practice revolved around him.
Take a gander. That's Justice Kennedy's dad.
12/ So, Samish goes to prison for the one thing that the Feds were great at popping mobsters for: tax evasion, of course.…
And then, years later Samish croaks. As does his consigliere, Kennedy.
And all those Samish atty-client privileged files...
13/ And all those business relationships of Samish's - all the other mobsters, & corporations of the mob, & individuals compromised by the mob - fell into the hands of...Kennedy's son, Anthony.
Yep. This was the law practice that young Tony Kennedy took over. He was a mob lawyer.
14/ (source for above screenshots)…
15/ Now, to avoid the uncomfortable discussion of mob families would be just a bullish*t thing to do, at this point.
Our democracy is at stake. So, I'm not sugarcoating a thing.
I'm also not going to point to anything but that which I can source.
All that above? That's sourced...
16/ But let's get real. When you're born into a mafia family, it's very likely (but not definitive) that you continue in the family's work.
It is what it is.
I, personally, cannot avoid this history of Kennedy's - when considering what his "retirement" is enabling...
17/ I don't know why he picked this moment to leave the bench & open up yet another seat for Trump & the completely compromised @GOP to fill.
I don't know why his son approved Trump's loans at Deutsche bank, & what that might mean (other than Russian mob money-laundering 😜).
Maybe someone paid him a visit, and let him know it was time to go.
Maybe that person(s) was even a good guy, because a bunch of sh*t is about to go down.
I don't know. I really don't.
BUT, I do know...…
19/ That ARTIE SAMISH WAS A HUGE MOBSTER, WITH A HUGE EMPIRE, & Justice Kennedy inherited all his legacy to keep.
Because the mob trusted him implicitly, or they would have never let him take over his father's practice. He was theirs.
And then, he chose to become a judge.
- END -

Some Far Right extreme reversals that Sept-Oct 2018 brought to the world:
1. Liberals went from "snowflakes" to a dangerous "mob" - requiring Rand Paul's wife to keep a gun by her bed.
2. Alt-Right went from "Gorilla Mindset" alphas to men who need their mommies to defend them.
3. Nazis went from despising "Chad" (their term for whiny, silver spoon, prep school boys who succeed from privilege) to embracing King Chad of Chadlandia, Kavanaugh.
4. @LindseyGrahamSC screeched & clutched his pearls, & thinks he found his balls.
Wait... he's always done that.
5. Lastly, the total abandonment of Taylor Swift by the White Supremacists who've had her back since Kanye stormed the stage & stole her moment 9 years ago.
Oh, & unrelated to Swift's pro-Dem vote stance, the Nazis now embrace... Kanye West.

When you have eyes directly on the RU-backed propaganda machine, you can predict that which seems unpredictable at the time.
I watched them weaponize this organic movement.
The emotional terrorism inflicted on our nation by @GOP around Dr. Ford/ Kavanaugh was inevitable. /1
2/ For new followers, and many older ones, there may still be some confusion over the seemingly disparate subjects covered by this twitter account.
They are not separate topics.
They are all related, because I'm metaphorically standing in the money pot underneath it all.
3/ If you stand there with me and look up, here is what you'll see:
- The Alt-Right media machine. Coordinating with both conservative PR firms (many of which are registered foreign agents in the FARA database), and Hill Staffers.

Every single one of Fred Trump's territories was controlled by the Genovese.
Watch this, then keep reading down this thread. I'm gonna show you something.…
2/ This is Sammy "The Bull" Gravano's testimony for the @SDNYnews, detailing trade union mafia corruption.
HRH Construction was Fred's - and then Donald's builder.

Here is how @SenateDems @DNC @HouseDemocrats need to fight:
1. Expose how PR firms & Senate Staff coordinate money and messaging.
2. Expose dirty tricksters who both create and capitalize on #1 above. Especially Chuck Johnson. Expose that shitbird like there's no tomorrow.
3 ...
3. EXPOSE MARK JUDGE's HISTORY W/ CHUCK JOHNSON & "dopple-gate" crew. Track that sh*t from Alt-Right players & Barbara Ledeen, spittled out of Hatch ("mixed up") before Ed Whelan got his thread out (oops), & ending w/@SenatorCollins. It's not a complex web. It's a straight-line.
4. Demand investigations of all THREE above for their role in Dr. Ford's email hack, death threats, and leaks to "journalists" about her name and address. She testified they were on her lawn before any reporting was public about her name & was genuinely confused how.

Some tunes from my DM music angel.
It's not that I don't have moments of despair.
It's that I let those moments wash over me, using music, poetry, art, love, and laughter where I can find it - to get me to the other side.

More recklessness in Kavanaugh's financials.
He spotted taking his Georgetown crew on AZ trip. He cannot afford this risk.
Kav's friendship circle has remained tight for 30+ yrs. And Kavanaugh routinely put currying favor w/them OVER the welfare of his household.
@ninaandtito made spreadsheets of Kavanaugh's financials from his disclosures. These numbers are coming from him.
This is what MSM press AND THE SENATE should have done. They failed.
Kavanaugh's reckless financial history makes him a prime target for outside influence. Indeed, in 2017 - just before his formal nomination, an unnamed source cleared all his debt. Exactly who did this has yet to be investigated.
