1985 is known as "The Year of the Spy" for good reason. Numerous Americans were arrested that year in treason and espionage cases, including such notables as John Walker and his "Family of Spies," Edward Lee Howard, and Ronald Pelton. However, clearly the strangest of the 1985 espionage arrests was that of Jonathan Pollard and his wife Anne, who were charged with spying for Israel. While most of the famous 1980s spy cases involved long-term investigations running for years, the Pollard case ran less than two weeks from first report to the actual arrests. Even stranger however, was that the investigation began as a simple look into the mishandling of classified documents by Pollard, with the treason/espionage charges developing only at the very end.
To learn more about the bizarre story of the Jonathan Pollard spyhunt, join military/intelligence historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday @ @WriteStream) at 1 p.m. Eastern.His guest this week will be former NIS/NCIS Special Agent Ronald Olive, who headed the Pollard investigation back in 1985. Olive is the author of the US Naval Institute Press book (@USNIBooks) CAPTURING JONATHAN POLLARD. Together they will explain the bizarre story and life of Jonathan Pollard, and the incredible twists and turns of that two week investigation. Listeners are encouraged to call in to offer questions and opinions, on what will be a lively hour on Military Monday.
Jessie Daniels along with his nephews formed the group Force MD's in 1981. They were frequently seen on the Staten Island Ferry and in other NYC locations singing in perfect harmony. Eventually the group signed up with Tommy Boy Records and produced classics! The group produced a collection of R&B hits throughout the 1980s, and received overwhelming commercial success from the Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis-penned love song "Tender Love" from their second album, 1985's Chillin’. The song was featured in the 1985 feature film and soundtrack Krush Groove, and proved to be a huge success, peaking at #10 in the Billboard Hot 100 chart, becoming an instant R&B classic after it stayed on the chart for 19 weeks. "Tender Love" was also one of the tracks that helped Jam & Lewis garner a Grammy Award for Producer of the Year. In 1987 they finally scored their first R&B #1 hit, "Love is a House," from their third album, Touch & Go. The fellas are still doing their thing and Jessie Daniels will be joining me, Meka Rae, Nathan James, and you for Brunch In The Basement With JaVonne.
The Black Mafia Family (BMF) is a drug trafficking organization originally based in Detroit, Michigan which was founded in the late 1980s by brothers Demetrius and Terry Flenory. By the year 2000, they had established cocaine distribution cells in cities throughout the United States. Through their Los Angeles-based drug source, they had direct links to Mexican-based drug cartels. They established two main hubs for their operation: the Atlanta, Georgia hub, for distribution, was operated by older brother Demetrius, while the Los Angeles, California hub was operated by Terry to handle incoming shipments from Mexico.
Around 2000, the organization tried to legitimize itself by entering the hip-hop music business, starting a company called BMF Entertainment. Through BMF Entertainment, it helped promote a number of artists, including Young Jeezy, as well as BMF Entertainment's sole artist, Bleu DaVinci. Before their entrance into the music business, the Flenory Brothers were known to associate with a number of high-profile hip-hop artists, including Jay-Z and Fabolous.
In 2005, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) indicted members of the Black Mafia Family, ultimately securing convictions by targeting the Flenory brothers under the Continuing Criminal Enterprise Statute. Both were sentenced 30 years to life. Subsequent indictments eventually targeted over 150 members of the organization. Prosecutors alleged the organization made over $270 million over the course of the conspiracy.
