|U.S. President Donald Trump brought serious racial overtones into his latest spewing, comparing his impeachment inquiry to a “lynching.”|
The highest-ranking African American in Congress warned Trump about making the comparison.
Red Summer- 1919 Omaha Nebraska Lynching
Indiana Lynching, 1930
|Lynchings were almost exclusively used by whites against blacks. Trump portraying himself as a victim is nothing new, but to use that term is to cross a line that ought never be crossed.|
This example is yet another of a textbook sociopath ... i.e. a person who has no understanding of others' feelings. They break rules or make impulsive decisions or comments without feeling any remorse or guilt for the harm they cause.

|This observer is getting numb to this continuous insult to intelligence. The frightening acceleration of clear and obvious stupidity from this man is beginning to concern me greatly. The man lies more easily than most tell the truth. That is a sociopath. |

|In reality, U.S. Coachways withheld the buses because multiple credit card payments made by Trump rally organizers were declined. Women for America First, the organizing group, blasted the bus company in a press release, accusing US Coachways of stopping “hundreds of Americans from exercising their first amendment rights.”|
Stewing participants raced to post terrible reviews on the company and vented seething rage over the conspiracy to rob them of their rights.

|Convicted pedophile Gary Glitter is set to rake in thousands from his appearance on the Joker soundtrack. His track 'Rock and Roll Part 2' plays for around two minutes in a key scene, which sees Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker dance down a long flight of steps as he transforms into the DC Comics villain.|
While Glitter is currently serving a 16-year jail sentence for attempted rape, indecent assault and having sex with a child under 13, the inclusion of the song is set to make loot for the star in royalties. Fans have taken to social media to rage over the musician profiting from the movie: “That monster doesn’t deserve royalties.”

|Vincent "Vinny Ocean" Palermo||Vincent "Vinny Ocean" Palermo is a former de facto boss of the New Jersey DeCavalcante crime family who became a government witness. Fictional mob boss Tony Soprano is based upon Palermo. In the early 1960s, Vincent Palermo met and married the niece of mob boss Sam DeCavalcante. DeCavalcante took a liking to his son-in-law and began inviting him to visit his social club in Kenilworth, New Jersey. He worked at the fish markets in the morning hours and hung out with mobsters on afternoons.||James Gandolfini - Sopranos|
Weiss and his mob partners had purchased a vacant property in Staten Island and illegally dumped large amounts of dangerous medical waste there.
|Cops uncovered the scheme and started investigating Weiss. Gambino boss John Gotti requested that the DeCavalcante family murder Weiss. On September 11, 1989, Palermo, Anthony Capo, and James "Jimmy" Gallo murdered Fred Weiss, on orders from DeCavalcante boss Giovanni "John the Eagle" Riggi. Weiss was associated with mobsters from both the DeCavalcante family and the New York Gambino crime family.|

|Palermo was quickly 'made' and shortly after was appointed caporegime and given his own crew. Riggi was sent to prison in 1989, and he appointed John "Johnny Boy" D'Amato as his acting boss. However, D'Amato's disgruntled girlfriend alleged in 1992 that he was bisexual. Riggi ordered Palermo and Anthony Capo to murder D'Amato in order to avoid embarrassment to the DeCavalcante family. In early 1992, D'Amato disappeared and his body was never found.|
By the mid-90s, Vinny Palermo was the de facto boss of the family, paralleling Tony Soprano in the Sopranos, and John Riggi was the boss in absentia from jail.

|After testifying for the government, Vincent Palermo and his family entered the federal Witness Protection Program.||In 1998, the FBI recruited DeCavalcante associate Ralph Guarino as a mob informant who devastated the DeCavalcante family. The agency gave him cell phones rigged with surveillance equipment to distribute to other family members. In October 1998, Vincent Palermo's trusted lieutenant Joseph Masella was shot to death, leaving an opening in the family. Guarino was promoted to made man.|
In 1999, the FBI moved in on the DeCavalcante family. Palermo decided to become a government witness. He confessed to killing Weiss and mobster Louis LaRasso and to planning the murders of John D'Amato, Joseph Masella, Charles Majuri, Frank D'Amato, and Tom Salvata. He also implicated other DeCavalcante family members in various crimes.

|On September 14, 2009, the New York Daily News exposed Vinny Ocean's new life in witness protection as a strip club operator in Houston, Texas. The 'Penthouse Club' and 'All-Star Men's Club' were hotbeds of prostitution and drugs according to police. He also owned a Mexican restaurant and a car wash - all next to one another in a gritty section of Houston.|
On March 4, 2013, Palermo filed a Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition in U.S. Bankruptcy Court. Under Chapter 11, a person's assets and debts are not liquidated, but the filer is given court protection from creditors.
Palermo put his $2.45 million home up for sale in September 2015.
|The strip club from The Sopranos sleeps with the fishes. Satin Dolls, the New Jersey club known as the Bada Bing from HBO’s Sopranos mafia drama, has been ordered to cease operations because of its real-life Mafia ties.|
| Anthony Cardinalle, a gangster connected to the Genovese crime family defied an order from the Division of Alcohol Beverage Control that barred his family from running the Satin Dolls and another lounge, A.J.’s Gentleman’s Club. The owners of the clubs, who were members of Cardinalle’s mob family, also “failed to account for large amounts of cash flowing in and out of the businesses.”|
The federal government indicted Cardinalle—'Tony'—in January 2013 for his part in a conspiracy related to the waste-disposal industry in New Jersey and New York.
Cardinalle pleaded guilty to racketeering conspiracy and conspiracy to commit extortion.
