Does Senator Menendez Have Mafia Friends?

September 13, 2010 at 3:47 P.M. Several attempts to reach this essay were blocked by messages appearing at my computer stating: "Service is Unavailable. Error 503." Presumably, this bogus message comes from New Jersey persons affiliated with Senator Bob who claims to be "for all the people." ("Senator Menendez Was Not Indicted Today.")

January 7, 2010 at 1:06 P.M. New attacks against my computer prevent me from accessing my home e-mail. I will continue to struggle. Access to MSN and MSN Groups is still obstructed. Who would wish to prevent me from posting essays on line and why? Could it be New Jersey? OAE? How's life treating you, John? Talk to me about your superior "ethics," boys.

March 5, 2009 at 2:41 P.M. Access to MSN is still blocked, efforts to read earlier posts were obstructed. Suddenly, there are many attempts to frustrate communication efforts or to create distractions. I will continue to write. At any time, I may be prevented from further work on these essays. Also, I may suffer an unfortunate accident. However, such an eventuality will not alter the truth-content of these essays. You decide what you believe based on what you observe, read and know of life.

As of 1988, Bayonne's rich mafia turf was taken over by "Genovese capo Angelo 'the Horn' Prisco." In 1994, following a three year investigation, Prisco and twelve other men were charged with murder, arson, extortion, and the illegal sale of automatic weapons. Prisco was also accused of sanctioning a plot to bomb an occuppied apartment building in Philadelphia. "That [bombing] never happened because the man assigned to do the deed was a state policeman working undercover."

New Jersey's Hudson County is mob country. No other county in New Jersey's mafia-saturated wastelands is as thrilled about its organized crime credentials. This goes way beyond Italian-American organized crime. Colombian drug cartels are well-represented with attorneys on call 24 hours per day. Cuban-American drug runners from Miami liked to stop off for lunch at the Union City Cafeteria before driving back to Miami Beach in a new car with cash in their pockets. No doubt many of these drug runners are active in the anti-Castro movements in Miami.

The countless La Cosa Nostra guys were the most colorful, however, enjoying political and legal protection from local politicians and (allegedly) from "friends" and "made members" among the judiciary. This is something that "I have reason to believe" is true. (See "Judges Protect Child Molesters in Bayonne, New Jersey," "Law and Ethics in the Soprano State" and "Senator Bob, the Babe, and the Big Bucks.")

"In 1998, Prisco pleaded guilty to arson for hire and conspiracy in the burning of a Garfield, New Jersey bar." This is the sort of offender who, deservedly, should be denied parole. Furthermore, given the back up in parole determinations in New Jersey, Mr. Prisco's case should not mysteriously leap to the top of the Parole Board's humanitarian considerations. Parole decisions, like everything else in the Garden State that involves the legal system, is tainted by corruption -- allegedly. (See The Soprano State, Supra et seq.)

Pictured above (the image is blocked) is Senator Robert "Bob" Menendez and a friend described, I believe and allegedly, only as "pinkie rings." I can neither confirm nor deny that this gentleman with the pink pocket handkerchief is, in fact, called "pinkie rings." Anyone wishing to supply this person's name is welcome to do so. I think that both of these men appear quite dashing in this photo. Union City is rumored to be "home base" for the Cuban illegal numbers game in America.

Senator Bob was "friendly" (allegedly) with many Cuban-American mafia guys who were virulent anti-Castro types that went into the drug dealing business, allegedly, right Bob? I heard some great stories concerning Bob in his early lawyering days hustling for public work and the "courtesies" required to get that public loot. I will be discussing Senator Bob's early adventures in future posts. I wonder whether they will block my t.v. signal again? I hope not. ("How Censorship Works in America.")

January 7, 2010 at 1:10 P.M. My access to my home e-mail account is obstructed, harassment made it difficult to reach this blog today. Perhaps this is merely a coincidence. (I am told that "Outlook Express -- is Not Responding.")

"Considering what the prosecutors said about his career, it is no surprise that the two times Prisco applied for parole he was rejected. Then, miraculously, after McGreevey became governor, the state parole board reversed itself just four months after the last parole denial in what insiders called a highly unusual move."

In New Jersey, this is not so unusual. I am surprised that Mr. Prisco was not appointed to a Municipal Court judgeship in Bayonne or North Bergen, or even a Superior Court "spot." Probably, this has something to do with the fact that a judgeship would be a pay cut for Prisco.

"Records show there was none of the customary paperwork that would indicate that someone in the appeals unit had reviewed the case."

Hey, what the hell. It's good old Joe. The following was the stunning and brilliant conclusion of New Jersey officials questioned about this matter:

"... 'It appears that it didn't go through the normal channels,' said Edward Ocksay, chief of the parole board's appeals unit."

No shit. How about that? Geez. Take a look at this typical Jersey "coincidence" -- like all the computer troubles that I have experienced lately:

"Prisco's original turf was the Bayonne waterfront, where International Longshoremen's Association Local 1588, long associated with the Genovese crime family, operates. [Diana Lisa Riccioli?] Seven weeks before Prisco got paroled, campaign records show, the International Longshoremen's Association, based in New York, donated $85,000 to the Democratic National Committee's non-federal account. The union donated $5,000 to the Hudson County, New Jersey, Democrats the day the parole board withdrew its denial of Prisco's parole. ..." (emphasis added!)

Guess who was the point man on this operation? Yep, you guessed right. Menendez buddie and front-man "Donald Scarinsci of the Scarinci and Hollenbeck law firm signed the Hudson County Democratic Committee's report as its treasurer." (See "More Problems for Menendez -- Tapes!") In the words of Ingle and McClure, "Scarinci is a Democrat fund-raiser known to run Hudson County for then-Congressman and now U.S. Senator Robert ['BobbyM'] Menendez."

I wonder where that money contributed to the Democrats so-called non-federal account was deposited? Isn't it amazing how often "BobbyM" turns up on F.B.I. tapes, allegedly? According to journalist Gregory J. Volpe, "while a member of the House of Representatives Menendez worked to ease the prison transfer of Nicholas Parlavecchio, a racketeer, convicted on Cocaine charges, who was eventually sent to the same prison as his son convicted for similar charges." (Soprano State, pp. 76-77.) All in the family, huh? Sweet.

In addition to these colorful friends, Senator Bob a.k.a. "Pappa" was rumored to be friendly with quite a few guys from Miami who made many trips to New Jersey -- for the weather. This can neither be confirmed nor denied at this time by anyone. All of this is entirely apart from regular incidents involving Mr. Scarinci acting for Menendez in "helping" persons benefitting from government contracts in the county for a "small fee," allegedly, in order to allow the Senator to "wet his beak." Also allegedly.

What do you got in the trunk, Bob? Oh, two hundred pounds of "sugar." Isn't that nice?

Where exactly is the Democrats' "non-federal account," Mr. Scarinci? Where did this "political contribution" go, allegedly? Aren't both American political parties required to have their "accounts" within the U.S. in American banks? I thought so. There were several instances of money being paid to local towns on transactions "disappearing" for a year or so? Where did that money go, Bob? Say hello to Jocelyn. Were you acting against me behind my back, Bob? That's legally unethical, Bobby. Were you or was anyone on your behalf in contact with clients represented by an attorney without identifying yourself to that attorney, Bobby Boy? That's "unethical," Bob. So is accepting a bribe as a public official, allegedly, right Bob?

A new "error" was inserted in this paragraph since my previous review of this essay. That's good. I thought they were forgetting about me. ("Fidel Castro's 'History Will Absolve Me'" and "Today's Cuban Revolutionaries Are on the Internet.")

The Xanadu matter -- 2 BILLION GUACAMOLES -- involves pouring your dollars into a projected development of a shopping mall in the Meadowlands in which Senator Bob was an alleged "beneficiary" or "investor," whether directly or indirectly. The deal may not go through, and the public investment will be gone with the wind -- like the millions that went to fill a hole in the area that somehow was never filled up with dirt, only with your money. How's that project in Bayonne, Bobby? $30 MILLION in taxpayer funds, huh. Nice. I bet the taxpayers don't know about all the chemicals in the area. ("New Jersey's Third World Ethics.")

Tape recorded conversations between Dr. Sandoval and Scarinci make for depressing confirmation of (in Mr. Scarinci's own words!) the obvious fact that "the only reason I stuck my nose in this thing is because Menendez asked me." (p. 76.) He wasn't kidding. ("More Problems for Menendez -- Tapes!")

Try the empanadas, Bobby.
