THE SHORT UNHAPPY LIFE OF Marilyn Monroe I wrote this play in Slovak in 2010 – 2013 after three more years of reading books and recently declassified documents on Marilyn Monroe, her psychiatrist, the Kennedys and the failed investigations into MM’s mysterious death. Here just a short extract from a scene in which MM and JFK talk after the night they spent together in Palm Springs in May 1962. . 2nd scene, II. act Marilyn: You mean the fiasco in the Bay of Pigs last year? Jack: A Fiasco! Fiasco! Baby girl, you sound like a people’s judge somewhere in Havana. Marilyn: I am so-sorry. I didn’t mean it like that. Jack: Our attempt to introduce democracy in Cuba didn’t work out and the whole world knows about it. We tried to pretend that it was the work of the Cuban immigrants and that we, the government, had no way of stopping them… and that… Marilyn: ... that you had nothing to do with it. Jack: Yes, something along those lines. But then the CIA, which was very much involved in the operation, m ...

Frank Sinatra, Cal Neva Resort, Spa & Casino, Lake Tahoe The Star: Owner of this Lake Tahoe retreat from 1960 to 1963, Frank Sinatra worked tirelessly to bring the resort up to the standards of his Rat Pack posse. But he lost Cal Neva in 1963, when authorities became aware of the presence of mobster Sam Giancana on the property and the state subsequently revoked his gaming license. The Haunting: There have been reports of Sinatra’s ghost in Lakeview Cabin a modest structure overlooking Lake Tahoe that Sinatra once called home. Bonus Haunt: Having been a frequent visitor to Cal Neva during Sinatra’s ownership, Marilyn Monroe’s ghost has been spotted in the resort’s swimming pool and in Lakeview Cabin where she used to stay.

According to the book, The Life Story of Sam Giancana, written by his son and brother, after orders from Washington, Sam ordered the hit on Marilyn, because she going to spill the beans on her affairs with John and Bobby Kennedy. Two hit men came to her room that night, held her down and placed a poisonous suppository in her *** and held her down until it took effect. By doing that, there was nothing in her stomach as evidence that she had been murdered.
JFK's enemies Although he has become a legend, John Fitzgerald Kennedy was hardly the most popular president in history when he was gunned down in November, 1963. In the previous six months alone, the Secret Service had reviewed over 400 threats to his life. Three of these were serious enough to entail changes in his security routine. He was loathed by anti-Castro exiles, other rightwingers, the Mafia and even some of his own government agencies. In attempting to figure out who murdered him, it is important to understand who hated him, and why. The stolen election The seeds of that hatred were planted in the 1960 election that brought Kennedy to the presidency. The Democrats stole that election from Republican candidate Richard Nixon by tampering with the vote in two states. In Illinois, Mafia boss Sam Giancana arranged for 10,000 votes to be cast for John F. Kennedy "from the graveyard." In Texas, the political machine of Kennedy's running mate, Lyndon Johnson, arbitrarily disqualified about 100,000 vote ...
-a-friend posted a dismissal of Jack Ruby's mob connections. I won't be drawn into a specious argument, so I'll just quote Wikipedia: In 1964, the Warren Commission provided a detailed biography of Ruby's life and activities to help ascertain whether he was involved in a conspiracy to assassinate Kennedy. The Commission indicated that there was not a "significant link between Ruby and Organized Crime" and said he acted independently in killing Oswald. Fifteen years later, the House Select Committee on Assassinations undertook a similar investigation of Ruby and said that he "had a significant number of associations and direct and indirect contacts with underworld figures" and "the Dallas criminal element" but that he was not a "member" of Organized Crime. Ruby was known to have been acquainted with both the police and the Mafia. The HSCA said that Ruby had known Chicago mobster Sam Giancana (1908-1975) and Joseph Campisi (1918–1990) since 1947, and had been seen with them on many occasio ...
“The Trafficante Legacy” The Wikipedia Jimmy Hoffa, president of the Teamsters Union, and mobsters Carlos Marcello, Sam Giancana, Johnny Roselli, Charles Nicoletti, and Santo Trafficante Jr.—all of whom say Hoffa worked with the CIA on the Castro assassination plots—top the list of House Select Committee on Assassinations Mafia suspects. It is also alleged that Mafia criminals may have wished to retaliate against John F. Kennedy in response to the increasing pressure put on them by Robert Kennedy, who had increased by 12 times the number of prosecutions conducted under the administration of President Dwight Eisenhower. Carlos Marcello allegedly threatened to assassinate the President to short-circuit Robert Kennedy, who was serving as US Attorney General and leading the administration's anti-Mafia crusade. 1. o The committee believes, on the basis of the evidence available to it, that the national syndicate of Organized Crime, as a group, was not involved in the assassination of Kennedy, but th ...
One of the assassins was Charles Nicoletti, hit man for the mob, who was located n the Dal-Tex Building in Dealey Plaza: CHARLES NICOLETTI, March 28, 1977 Charles Nicoletti was a “hit-man” and enforcer for Chicago Mob chieftain Sam Giancana. When Giancana was murdered in May of 1975, just days prior to his scheduled appearance to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee on mob activities in the attempted assassination of Fidel Castro, Charles Nicoletti broke off relations with the Mob and gave as his reason that “the CIA was taking over the operation.” Giancana’s murder by .22 caliber bullets was very suggestive of a CIA “hit.” In a death bed confession made by CIA agent Chauncey Holt, who claimed that he was a CIA operative both before and at the time of JFK’s death, Holt alleged that Charles Nicoletti was one of the gunmen in Dealey Plaza and that Nicoletti had been driven to Dealey Plaza from Arizona by Holt. Holt confessed that he and Nicoletti began their journey the day b ...

A black Sam Giancana that would be perfect. He can't die before me tho.
In one month it will be 50 years since the assassination of President John F. Kennedy Jr. So I will probably be posting quite a bit on that tragic event. I think Sam Giancana told the truth in the book Double Cross by his brother as to shooters and the Mafia & CIA collusion. But there's also the Texas angle and the personal power motive of one Lyndon Baines Johnson who went on to become a mass murdering war criminal.
An author (new book out perchance?) claims Bobby Kennedy stole JFK's brain. I think it was Sam Giancana acting alone.
I am getting excited about the release of my book but more excited that my film Momo: The Sam Giancana Story is being released Nationally Nov 19th on Video on Demand and available on DVD ... my producers just did a segment on CNN about our award winning film :-) Our film was picked up not only in Australia and France etc but more oversea countries will be showing our film in theaters etc ...

Chapter 5 of Killing Kennedy by Bill O/Reilly Just a few short weeks after being named attorney general, Bobby Kennedy received a special file from J. Edgar Hoover, the pug-nosed and Machiavellian head of the FBI. In the file was evidence about the extramarital affairs JFK was having. In fact, Hoover was keeping special files on all politicians in DC and elsewhere. This was job security for Hoover. He wants everybody to know the FBI will never be diminished – and that there is nothing illicit going on in America that is beyond his purview. In early 1962 JFK planned to visit Frank Sinatra in Palm Springs while Jackie was on a trip to India and Pakistan. . On hearing this, the FBI informed Bobby that Frank Sinatra was deeply involved with the Mafia. Not only that, but that JFK was having sex with a consort of Sam Giancana, the top of the list of Mafia kingpins that Bobby was trying to bring down. Her name was Judith Campbell. The FBI had been keeping files on Sinatra since the late 1940s, chronicling his ...

15 Oktober 2013 THE MURDER OF JFK 10 REASONS WHY A RESPONSIBLE CONCLUSION Since November 22, 1963, there have been over 2,000 books, dozens of television programs and countless movies filled with theory, conjecture and myth as to why John F. Kennedy was gunned down in broad daylight on a downtown Dallas street. Until now, no one has been able to prove anything other than the fact that the FBI and the CIA did little to help the Warren Commission, a select group of bureaucrats with an agenda of lies. Denials, false sponsors, and government cover-ups continue to reign supreme, the latest attempt being the Assassination Records Review Board, five scholars appointed by President Bill Clinton. The Review Board, while powerless from a judicial standpoint, appears credible, yet "controlled." Their mission, to quote Chairman John Tunheim, is to "convince the American people that the government is not withholding any documents from the public." Professional assassins don't take notes or leave documents behind.(1) T ...
JFK ASSASSINATION, Part 16. QUOTATIONS: JIM MARRS (author and assassination researcher): "In reviewing the experiences of the people in Dealey Plaza the day Kennedy died, it is apparent that not one single person saw the assassination as it was described by the Warren Commission." CHERYL McKINNON (Reporter for the San Diego Star News): I am sorry to say that the only thing I am absolutely sure of today is that at least two of the shots fired that day in Dealey Plaza came from behind where I stood on the Knoll, not from the Book Depository." SAM HOLLAND (railroad signal supervisor): "There was definitely a shot fired from behind that picket fence and there's no doubt in my mind and never will be because I was on the spot and saw the smoke." STARVIS ELLIS (Dallas motorcycle patrolman) "There was a hole in the left front windshield.you could put a pencil through it." EVALIA GLANGES (2nd year student at Southwestern Medical University): "It was very clear, a through and through bullet hole thro ...
The Road to Dallas: The Assassination of John. F. Kennedy Assassination of President John F. Kennedy is an awkwatd topic for professional historians. Despite the obvious importance of this event, no one has conclusively established who was behind the assassination and why. On the one hand, the Watren Commission's conclusion that Lee Harvey Oswald acred alone, without accomplices, is widely viewed as a whitewash. On the other hand, the numerous conspiracy theories disseminated on the Internet and elsewhere seem sensationalist, careless, and (in many cases) embarrassing to read. It is thus a welcome development that David Kaiser - a respecred historian at the U.S. Naval Wat College - has waded into the proverbial minefield, and produced a sober and objective analysis. The Road to Dallas relies heavily on investigative files that have been declassified in recent years, following the passage of the 1992 Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act. In essence, Kaiser argues that Oswald was directed by an orga ...

HOLY SMOKE AND MIRRORS By David Guyatt Albert Vincent Carone is one of those people who spent his life dancing between raindrops and turning invisible wherever a shadow lingered. He existed and also didn’t exist. Al Carone - unlike his near namesake, Al Capone – truly was a paradox wrapped in a mystery concealed behind an enigma. Carone was a detective in the New York Police Department, but this didn’t stop him from becoming a “made” man in the Genovese crime family. He knew all the leading Mafiosa of his day, including Vito Genovese, Sam Giancana, Santos Trafficante, Joe Colombo and Pauley Castellano amongst others. To Carone’s daughter, Dee, they were all known as “Uncle.” When she got married, her father arranged two different reception rooms to separate the “mob” guests, from the NYPD guests. But this was more window-dressing than anything else. One of Carone’s principal functions in the NYPD was to act as the “bagman” in protecting shipments of CIA drugs to the vario ...

On July 19, 1975, the night before he was going to be questioned by the Senate committee, Sam Giancana was preparing supper. Some person he trusted was let in for a discussion, which ended with bullets pumped into Giancana's head (the back), then his throat and mouth - to signify not to talk. He was murdered there at the scene and never did get to testify.
Sam Giancana's brother and I think a nephew, wrote Double Cross. They made it plain they were no fans of the Kennedys, and said they had written it mostly to try to prod an investigation into the murder of Chicago crime boss Sam Giancana. Sam was murdered about the time he was supposed to testify before Congress about JFK. Isn't it "odd" that that type of thing just sort of kept happening? It just doesn't pay to have first hand information about that murder as over 100 (I'm not exaggerating) people found out to their horror when they were "eliminated." I have lots of information. None of it is first hand, none is admissible in court ... and no, in a court of law, I could not prove that anyone did it (not even Lew Harvey Oswald, the designated patsy).
Years ago in Dallas, I purchased two books about Organized Crime: Double Cross (the story of Sam Giancana); and Mob Lawyer (the story of attorney Frank Ragano). Both of those books put the assassination of JFK at the hands of Organized Crime.
Just curious: how much of the general population today has any idea who Jimmy Hoffa was?
DETROIT -- Digging is resuming Tuesday off a dirt road in Oakland Township by FBI agents looking for the body of missing Teamster Jimmy Hoffa.
Naturally, with the first ever real emphasis on Organized Crime coming under Bobby Kennedy, Organized Crime was not singing their praises. For many decades, chief among the suspects have been Organized Crime Chieftains like Carlos Marcello, Santos Trafficante, and Sam Giancana. Giancana's brother even wrote a book with another family member in which he steadfastly maintained that Sam told him that Organized Crime killed Jack Kennedy (because of the war on crime organized by Bobby Kennedy) and killed Marilyn Monroe, hoping to frame Bobby Kennedy (who allegedly was having an affair with her).
Hoffa remains: An FBI spokesman said that the agency was executing a search or Jimmy Hoffa's remains in Oakland Township, about 25 miles north of Detroit.
Words of wisdom from a radical right-wing lunatic: “The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it. …there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it. And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment.” Oh, yeah, his name: John Fitzgerald Kennedy
Let's see. Joe made his fortune bootlegging during prohibition. John was in bed with mafia kingpin Sam Giancana - which is how he was elected president. Not to mention, he and his brother Robert were screwing Marilyn Monroe. Ted "accidentally" killed Mary Jo Kopecne - which just may have had something to do with his wife, Joan's lifelong bout with alcohol, causing her children to take control of her affairs when she was still in her 60s. And don't even get me started on the 3rd generation; David's drug addiction, Joe II's jeep accident that left a girl paralyzed. William's rape trial. You're right. The Kennedys are much worse.
1965: Chicago Outfit boss Sam Giancana incarcerated for contempt for refusing to testify before a Federal grand jury probing Organized Crime
Have you ever heard the name "George de Mohrenschildt?" He was a key figure in the JFK assassination. He was a semi-wealthy Russian oil man who lived in Texas and befriended Lee Harvey Oswald. When Idaho Senator Frank Church's House Select Committee on Assassinations ordered him to appear before them to answer questions in 1977 about his relationship with Oswald, Mohrenschildt was found dead from a shotgun blast to his mouth before he could testify. Local coroner ruled it a suicide. In fact, a number of key people who were ordered to appear before the committee were killed before they could testify, including Chicago mob boss Sam Giancana, and mobster Johnny Roselli. Anyway, in searching the Russian's briefcase, a Senate investigator found de Mohrenschildt's personal address book. Inside was an entry for "Bush, George H. W. (Poppy), 1412 W. Ohio also Zapata Petroleum, Midland, Texas." So Oswald's buddy had Papa Bush's name and address in his little black book. Correspondence between the two would late ...

Nathaniel Thomas Wilson (born July 20, 1968), better known by his stage names Kool G Rap (or simply G Rap, and originally Kool Genius of Rap) is an American rapper. He hails from the Corona neighborhood of Queens, New York City. He began his career in the mid-1980s as one half of the group Kool G Rap & DJ Polo and as a member of the Juice Crew. He is often cited as one of the most influential and skilled MCs of all time as he is a pioneer of mafioso rap/street/hardcore content and multisyllabic rhyming. On his album The Giancana Story, he stated that the "G" in his name stands for "Giancana" (after the mobster Sam Giancana), but on other occasions he's stated that it stands for "Genius". He has also been cited as a major influence to some of hip-hop's most critically acclaimed figures such as - Eminem, NAS, Jay-Z, Notorious B.I.G., Big Pun, RZA, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah Necro, Action Bronson, Homeboy Sandman, and more.
Wonderful two hours last night at the Arcada Theatre in St. Charles, with Shirley MacLaine showing us photos, movie clips, and other items on a big screen, the answering questions. The photos and clips were accompanied by great stories of the times, one laugh after another. Shirley is a great actress with Oscars to prove it, she was an excellent dancer, and she is the last living member of the Rat Pack. Two of her stories: In THE APARTMENT, her character plays gin rummy, because Billy Wilder started the shoot with only 29 pages of script, writing more as they went along and bringing in things the actors were doing. Shirley was learning gin rummy from Sam Giancana at the time. In THE CHILDREN'S HOUR, her character is confessing that she has feelings for her teaching partner, Audrey Hupburn, a difficult subject in 1961. As she acted the sensitive scene to perfection, Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin were off camera throwing spitballs at her. She noted that the duo knew the right angle to toss them so th ...
Publisher's Review of Sinatra and Me: The Very Good Years February 7, 2013 Sinatra and Me: The Very Good Years Tony Consiglio, as told to Franz Douskey. Tantor Media, Inc., $19.95 (303p) ISBN 978-0-9883494-2-1 Consiglio, a friend from Frank Sinatra's New Jersey boyhood, was present during the star's formative years in his career. Before his death in 2008, he shared with Douskey intimate details of Sinatra's rise to fame, during which he accompanied the performer to nightclubs, Las Vegas casinos, and meanderings through the Hollywood scene. Although many of these accounts were previously the subject of rumor rather than verifiable anecdote, from hard times to success and excess, Consiglio reports on the women, the shady characters, and the foibles and generosity for which Sinatra was known. It is believed that in Sinatra's lifetime, "he raised more than a billion dollars for his charity work," while once he performed for free to help out a club owner in hock to the mobster Sam Giancana. Thanks to Sinatra's ...
watching Sugartime (1995 movie about Sam Giancana)..not the best gangster film but i like John Turturro as sam giancana.
Just finished Bill O'Reilly's book, 'Killing Kennedy', and what a great read for anybody, especially those baby boomers, who can remember 'Camelot'. By simply stating facts, he makes it a cornucopia for conspiracy theorists. You learn how he became hated by Allen Dulles, the CIA director, Hoover, the FBI director, Sam Giancana, the Mafia godfather, and Lyndon Johnson, his own vice president. But he also gives you a telling portrait of Lee Harvey Oswald, and how he could come to kill the most powerful man in the free world. And in the end, the profile of Oswald can be matched with that of a lot of our modern day shooters. O'Reilly draws no conclusions, but gives you all the info for you to make your own. Myself, I started the book with serious doubts as to the lone gunman theory, due to all the research info that's out there. And in the end, I saw how Oswald could come to do what he did, but most importantly, I now think I know why.

Nicholas Celozzi has produced or written 20 films, but his new project about his great-uncle Sam Giancana, Chicago's former Organized Crime boss of The Outfit, might be his most personal.
Did you know...? Lee Harvey Oswald before going to Dallas and shooting President Kennedy spent the summer in New Orleans participating in Anti-Castro rallies. There is news footage of him handing out flyers in the streets. The flyers return mail address was for the residence of an ex-FBI agent named "McBannister". McBannister had served for decades as the go-between for Joe Kennedy (JFK's Father) and the Chicago mafia's Sam Giancana. He also worked with the CIA in coordinagting the Bay of Pigs invasion with the Chicago mobs assistence. He ALSO brokered the deal during JFK's election in 1960 that Sam Giancana agreed to deliver the City of Chicago vote via the labor unions the mob controlled. This GAVE JFK the Presidency. The House Congressional Panel that re-examined JFK's assisination from '76-'79 reported that there WAS significant eveidence of a conspiracy that FULL investigation was ordered. However Democrats in control did NOT fund the investigationa nd it was allowed to die off. ALL documents from th ...
Was it really Bobby Kennedy & Sam Giancana who had Marilyn Monroe murdered 50 yrs ago? And when Bobby turned on Sam...
Investigative reporter known as "The Ultimate JFK Historian," Lamar Waldron, discussed new information and documents that link the murders of Jimmy Hoffa, mob boss Sam Giancana, and Mafia don Johnny Rosselli to the Watergate scandal. These men, he revealed, all had ties to Richard Nixon as well as to JFK's assassination. Waldron dispelled what he considered myths about Watergate-- one of which was the idea that the cover-up was worse than the crime. There were actually four burglary attempts at the Watergate, and the same crew burglarized the Chilean embassy in Washington. According to Waldron, the Watergate burglaries were Nixon's attempt to retrieve files that revealed how he orchestrated the CIA and E. Howard Hunt to use the Mafia to try to kill Fidel Castro, before the 1960 election. As well as how he got a $500,000 bribe from some of those same mobsters.

QI FACT: In 1975, mobster & boss of the Chicago Outfit from 1957–1966, Sam Giancana, was killed. Born to Sicilian immigrants in Little Italy, Chicago, his father, owned an Italian ice shop, which was later firebombed by gangland rivals of his son. He joined a juvenile street gang & was an excellent getaway driver, a high earner, & a vicious killer which gained him the notice of Cosa Nostra higher-ups like Frank "The Enforcer" Nitti. In 1933, he married the daughter of Italian immigrants & had 3 daughters. In 1942, he allegedly forced jazz musician Tommy Dorsey into letting singer Frank Sinatra out of his contract early, so that Sinatra could expand his career, by making Dorsey an offer he couldn't refuse. This story was famously referenced in "The Godfather". He was present at the Mafia's 1957 Appalachian Meeting at the Upstate New York estate of Joseph Barbara. It is widely reputed, and partially corroborated by the Church Committee Hearings, that during the Kennedy administration, the Central Intellig ...
FILM FACT. The 1995 TV film "Sugartime", based on a true story that depicts mobster Sam Giancana's relationship with singer Phyllis McGuire, the youngest of "The McGuire Sisters". Giancana was played by actor John Turturro, and Phyllis was played by actress Mary Louise Parker. The demise of the singing group is often contributed to her long-standing personal relationship with Giancana, which all but blacklisted the group. During one of his 1960s court appearances for which Phyllis was subpoenaed, Giancana told reporters outside the courthouse that "Phyllis knows everything" about the rumored, unethical behaviors of President Kennedy and his brother Robert Kennedy. Phyllis has resided in a famously showcased mansion in Las Vegas for decades, boasting its own beauty parlor, a swan mote, and a replica of the Eiffel Tower which actually rises through the home's roof. When asked by Barbara Walters during a 1980s ABC-TV "20/20" interview from within the mansion, if any of the money to build the lavish home came ...
According to a biography of Sam Giancana written by his family, Giancana told his younger brother that it was Cain and Charles Nicoletti, not Lee Harvey Oswald, who were in the Texas Book Depository on November 22, 1963. This claimed was never proved. In 1996, based on information from Brazilian journalist Claudia Furiati, author Eric Hamburg claimed that Cain had been involved with Dave Yaras and Lenny Patrick during the assassination. Since his death, other researchers, including Larry Hancock and Cain's half brother Michael J. Cain, have investigated his rumored ties to the JFK assassination. Neither has obtained any conclusive evidence to support his involvement in any aspect of the assassination. Michael J. Cain discovered through a witness his half brother was waiting to testify before a grand jury in Chicago on November 22, 1963 when the news was announced John Kennedy had been shot. Michael Cain said that the grand jury files were destroyed.

Sinatra garnered considerable attention due to his alleged personal and professional links with Organized Crime, including figures such as Carlo Gambino, Sam Giancana, Lucky Luciano, and Joseph Fischetti. The Federal Bureau of Investigation kept records amounting to 2,403 pages on Sinatra. With his alleged Mafia ties, his ardent New Deal politics and his friendship with John F. Kennedy, he was a natural target for J. Edgar Hoover's FBI. The FBI kept Sinatra under surveillance for almost five decades beginning in the 1940s. The documents include accounts of Sinatra as the target of death threats and extortion schemes. They also portray rampant paranoia and strange obsessions at the FBI and reveal nearly every celebrated Sinatra foible and peccadillo.
