SORT BY Relevancy
Nothing like it before. Nothing like it since. Murder Inc. was the most unusual, brutal and extensive collection of characters the American underworld had ever produced. Culled primarily from Brooklyn's Brownsville and Ocean Hill sections, these official on-call killers of New York's larger crime Syndicate were a unified force of Jewish and Italian gangsters that treated murder as an art form for an entire decade.
They were called mobsters, thugs, hoods and racketeers, but at the very core... they were assassins. When gangland kingpins, such as Louis "Lepke" Buchalter, Charles "Lucky" Luciano and Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel, needed a contract fulfilled - the "Combination" boys would eagerly take to task the enforcement duties, which included methods ranging from gunfire to fire axes, incineration to icepicks.
These are the mysteries, the sordid stories, the character profiles, alluring and lesser known tales of the Mob's Most Deadly Hit Squad. Meet the killers, the victims, the bosses, the lovers, the deceivers and the gangbusters that made up a nationally-reaching ensemble cast rivaling anything organized crime or law enforcement had ever imagined to that point in time. Discover the nuances, the attitudes, the motivations, the ambitions and, thanks to little honor among thieves, the scathing revelations that lead to an inevitable downfall.

November 18, 1978, was a tragically unprecedented day in U.S. history that will forever be woven into the fabric of this country. It is the day that leader of Peoples Temple (PT), James Warren Jones, ordered the assassination of U.S. Congressman Leo J. Ryan and others at the Port Kaituma airstrip in South America, then led his congregation on what Guyana's police chief, Skip Roberts, testified was a "mass suicide." Decades later, however, the depth of this story is still unknown, and many scholars and former members who have continued their exploration of the incidents have found that there is still plenty of evidence as well as plenty of sinister connections that contradict the official version of this story. Jonestown: "Don't Drink the Kool-Aid" is the chronological story of the rise and fall of Peoples Temple and its leader Jim Jones-from his early years in Indianapolis and California, to the tragic ending in the jungle of South America that claimed the lives of 918 Americans. Jonestown: "Don't Drink the Kool-Aid" comprehensively details the many links that Jones and his compound had with the CIA and their MKULTRA experiments. Through a comprehensive analysis of Jones' life, Peoples Temple, and the investigation and the aftermath of the mass murder/suicides; this book is designed to be the quintessential marking piece that will re-introduce this story to society and serve as a reminder of the infamous mantra that hung in the pavilion in Jonestown: "Those who forget the past are condemned to repeat it."

Many people are aware that Hollywood is preparing to release the new jewvie, "Straight Outta Compton" in August of 2015. This is about the birth of the gangsta rap group NWA. This film is designed to prevent Black people from breaking through self-hatred of the past 25 years and emerging from our deep Negro slumper. I t is also designed to provoke our people to uncalculated rebellion that will justify unleashing the National Guard in the Black community.
The plan is to use the same smallhat-sponsored gangsta rap nonsense they used in 1988 to inspire thoughtless, reactionary rebellion among Black youth across the country. Once they've unleashed the National Guard in our community, the King Alfred-styled murder of our people will begin. The reason they're releasing the film on August 14, 2015 is because August is the time when most Black rebellions occur. They intend to use the momentum they've created around the televised killing and murder of Black people throughout this country to justify a genocidal offensive against our people in the inner cities that will make the Bush/Brown massacre (Hurricane Katrina Genocide) look like child's play.
This is a very dangerous time in our history. The smallhats will use Barack Obama's presidency in this country to justify the genocide of Afrikan people in the streets of this country as not being "racist." We have to figure out between now and then how to combat the emerging police state and violence against Black people, while at the same time avoiding the genocidal schemes the whites have for our people.
Tune in to this program. It's one of the most important discussions we're going to have.
