"We are back with the mark Shaw's we're talking about is a continual incredible work and denial of justice March there was a attorney who initially started these investigations along time ago he's not with us anymore his name was mark Elaine do some people get you confused with him well no but I I have some real regrets there I I was working on the reporter who knew too much and Dorothy's the first book about Dorothy and I had his name down to get in touch with him because I he and Dorothy were kindred spirits it should his his book I think was rush to judgment she gave that endorsement in her column which made up it was a big deal at the time I mean she could make or break a career so that made a lot of difference and she won the few people that she shared her JFK assassination evidence with and they they really in a one point I remember she said or he told her he said you have to be careful because we're going to you know what we're going to be a surveillance is going to happen to both of us as you're working on the JFK assassination I really want to talk to him and unfortunately he passed away and I wasn't able to do that and so I have a regret with regard to it if people you know confuse me with mark lane in my opinion that would be an honor I I feel like he was a man of the truth like you are George and hopefully me who who really want to find the facts about what happened and as I say unfortunately I wasn't able to interview him before he died is there a paranormal connection mark between you and Dorothy Kilgallen well it's just absolutely amazing also you know I don't know why and people may wonder about this but I think she chose me to write about her maybe she admired some of the work that I've done before or whatever but there's no no way that she couldn't have chosen me and it it's almost every single day my wife gets a little tired of it times when I. teller that Dorothy wakes me up in the middle of the night but she has you know I can I can give you so many examples nobody had ever published her autopsy report for instance well I couldn't get it to the medical examiner's office in the because I'm not a family member so one night I woke up in the middle of the night and in my mind was national archives my wife's a librarian at Santa Clara University we have a friend of hers at the library of Congress we ask her to go over to the National Archives and there was the autopsy it it's amazing and and the same kind of thing is now happening with some of the the new evidence about Maryland's death so yes I'm I'm honored that Dorothy chose needed to tell her to tell her story and I'm I'm now kind of her voice and that's why I fight so hard to try or try to get her the justice he deserves Blair in Sedona Arizona is with us now to get us started hi Blair go ahead thank you George Mister strada you mentioned surveillance here's for a marked lanes to Dorothy yeah so to me that's not just organized crime but government involvement to whether any specific news columns of Dorothy's that referred to this before her death yes specifically even before she was working on the JFK assassination Dorothy used to have a they called it a science club and it met in PJ at page you have PJ Clark's in New York City which is a famous bar back there and she had several people every Wednesday who would appear and they would talk about the events of the day and all of that in fact even a mobster named Frank Costello who killed our new came at one point but later on if we were able to find out that she had been under surveillance there they had actually put an informant a government informant into that science club to watch Dorothy and what she was doing her investigation of some of the deaths that happen they suspected that she knew more about the Lindbergh baby kidnapping case then then she should have so right away she was under surveillance but the moment that it became known that she was working on the JFK assassination the moment she she published that first column the odds walled file must not close six days after JFK died and on all of that there's no question that they had their eyes on on her now who was very well certainly could have been J. Edgar Hoover who we know from a memo was the one who put the informant in the science club but it could have been Marcello it could have been government agents whoever you know they knew that it because of who she was how powerful she was that she would get to the truth about what happened and they couldn't letter write that book for for Random House mark did the name Santos Trafficante come up much in your work yes many people don't know and you mentioned James Hoffa I I hadn't remembered that you knew about that prior to his disappearance but there was a lawyer in Tampa Florida named Frank oregano and Frank rigano was the lawyer get this for Carlos Marcello Santo Trafficante and James Hoffa yup a very powerful lawyer and trava Conde was kind of the silent partner of those three down there but it's dangerous as possible and Rigondeaux wife who I interviewed even talked about how he she couldn't even imagine this old man ordering all of these these these that murders because he just didn't seem like that but he figures into the JFK assassination because Melvin belli ruby's attorney at one particular point rigano decide to sue The New York Times because a photograph in the times of portrayed him as a mafioso when he was at a luncheon with Frank Costello Marcello and some other people so we hired bell I just sued The New York Times well trump account they told Nancy rigano Frank's wife that belli at one particular point rigano ask you know drop account A. about belli and and top account they said well whatever you do don't ask belli about the JFK assassination because it's none of your business and so I have no problem connecting traffic Conde with Marcello with Papa who hated Bobby Kennedy is you know you nobody can you try to strangle M. F. one point so that hold group in there they were they were the ones that Joe Kennedy a double crossed and I's as we talked about based on my own experience in Philadelphia you can't mess around with those guys ironically Haas I had the two children one became a Saint Louis George barber Kranz or outstanding person and then her and then his son is still heads up the teamsters union I hadn't I I think I know about the sun but I never knew about the the judge ordered that almost interesting yup great person let's go to fill up in Miami first time caller hi Philip go ahead Sir Kennedy had had a stroke and it leads to out sixty two and sixty three how would things have been different how would that have affected things yeah John Kennedy stroke slowing down it'll work well after Joe Kennedy and again I had a primary source witness there at the dinner when Joe Kennedy against JFK and Bobby's wishes order JFK to appoint Bobby Kennedy Attorney General and when Bobby went after those guys then you know the the mafioso including G. N. Khanna they sent an emissary to Joe Kennedy and told him you've gotta stop this you gotta stop Bobby from doing what he's doing deporting Marcello you know indicting Dian con it you've got to stop it from happening well Bobby it was so head strong about this that he didn't listen to Joe Kennedy and I think that's what perpetuated the heart attack that Joe Kennedy had and after that he was immobile he was in a wheelchair and everything there's a very telling scene that I put in their poison patriarch and in the knowledge justice that when Ted Kennedy walks into Joe Kennedy's bedroom and it shows him a headline that JFK had been killed Joe Kennedy sweeps that newspaper off of the bed and basically falls off the bed crying because Joe knew what he had done he had without pulling the trigger he had killed his son by double crossing those bad guys and sixteen Bobby on them and so it would things have changed if if a Joe hadn't had a heart attack I doubt it because he couldn't control his son Joe body anymore interesting and I just saw a movie on teddy Kennedy in Chappaquiddick and he was calling Joe you know telling them what we do what we do and it least in the movie all the the Joe Kennedy would say would be al Abadi a lot of people say that's another murder charge that Ted Kennedy could have could have rescued her and and left her to die alone under water and just a real trash strange whole Kennedy family unfortunately no wonder there's not been Kirsten Kennedy curse now lives in close happen to the people in that that you can level you can't live your life that way no not at all lower is a new your welcome to the program hi Laura go ahead hi thanks for taking my call welcome home the investigative work that you're doing is really great and I will listen to all your connections of with all these people and it's really excellent they just wanted to make two suggestions the first suggestion is I was gonna ask you if you've consulted psychics in to get answers from these murders and the reason why is that psychics aren't back room little ladies with crystal balls anymore they're women that have million dollar contracts on Netflix and they're people that George had on the show and the their clients a million dollar movie stars in these mediums are so smart and they're so as to and I think if you consulted a bunch of them you might get some missing pieces and some answers for your investigations and then on my second suggestion is is for you to if you ever have time to have the interest is to take your excellent investigative skills and investigate the actual murder of the century which is princess Diana boy all right let me add only say first of all I have all the respect in the world for for psychics and those that can connect people and everything I've never admitted this before but I will on this program yes there was a gentleman on the east coast he and his wife I feel very confident in their credentials and I I was able to speak with them and talk to about Dorothy and all of that and they came back and and we talked and and I was pleased to say that to find out that they felt like the Dorothy in fact had chosen me to tell her story she was very pleased with what I was doing and she was going to continue to help me there have been other of psyche to approach me I haven't been able to do anything with that because I've been so busy and all that but I never adverse to that I I think you know just quickly this summer I decide I want to get smarter so I read the by Agha fees of Michael at Michelangelo Leonardo da Vinci and Albert Einstein and I don't know that I got smarter but I did notice one similarity of the three men they each talked about the most important element of a human being can have his curiosity and I think that you know in this day and age we want to look at everything including those in in the hereafter that can help us or it could connect us with that we need to ask questions we need to find out you know what is happening that way and so I haven't admitted that before but I got some valuable information and it led to some other things that I could I could look into your second question about princess Diana I've been asked about that several times that's a tough one because again like Maryland's death it was kind of a mess right after everything happened there was so much going on that it's difficult to find out and and and separate truth from fiction yeah again tragic accident yeah I'm very convenient death and why because apparently she was gonna spill the beans on what was going on with the royal family so you certainly have motive there I mean look how they've tried to cover up is it is a prince Andrew that was involved with apps teams that's what they say you know it trying to cover up all of that and so I have no doubt that princess Diana in my own mind was silence just as Maryland and Dorothy was tragedies all over the place market they continue to get away with it well they do because people don't ask enough.

"In May of two thousand four. Police pulled up floorboards in northwest Detroit. Freud home but we did not uncover any evidence relevant to the investigation on James Hoffa in twenty twelve lease dug up backyard in Roseville. Say it has no credibility at all in twenty thirteen acting on a tip from our boss. Tony's really the FBI Doug on a forum on you'll road in Oakland Township all day long. The HOOPLA grew and grew once word spread. The date for Hoffa's remains had begun this again coming up empty. Why have there been so many seemingly credible tips? Scott Bernstein says it's because the Jack Aloni pros there's launched a campaign of misinformation to cover up the perfect crime so I believe the Jack Loney brothers were incredibly proud and they really war the fact that they pull this crime of the century off so successfully they really ward as a badge of honor and they really got their kicks out of tweaking people about it and you know my research tells me that. They launched a disinformation Asian campaign. From nine hundred seventy five and into the two thousands when they both passed away where they would you know intentionally tell thirty people thirty thirty different things and both billion. Tony knew that they were. They were tweaking they were they were gas lighting eighteen. Let's focus on three possibilities number one Scott Bernstein and Keith Corbett former assistant. US Attorney have come to the same conclusion. Okay rhenium Traumat- Hamtramck is widely known for police bakeries. But that's not why we're here. Today does not not much to see here now but this used to be eight. Two one five Moran in Nineteen Seventy Five. It was a model trash company. It was called central sanitation. It was owned by two Detroit mob lieutenants Peter Fatality and Jimmy Clause Rhino and they had these gigantic compresses for cardboard where they compress impress. Three four five tons of parboil at one time in shredded down to little pieces of paper and people were not thinking in one thousand nine hundred seventy five of DNA EH so full body in there. Just get crushed up in into pricing. A couple of months after half disappeared the place burning down. What a coincidence coincidence and you know the people in the insurance policy paid off you know and Everybody was happy then will dare has done his own research and says there's no way. The body was disposed of its central sanitation. Essential Sanitation was dismissed by the FBI in a Nineteen seventy eight in a very open statement. Where the FBI said this is not what we believe? We check this out and we have completely rejected. The central sanitation theory possibility number two a new character enters the story. A small time on criminal named Donovan Wells who died this past year in two thousand six and FBI search focused on a farm in Milford Michigan once owned by Union Leader and Hoffa enemy rolling McMaster Donovan Wells and his wife lived on that farm. Back in nineteen seventy five on the day of the murder Don Wells wife Ana. She's at the farmhouse. She's in the kitchen and she's washing dishes looking out towards Pontiac Jack Trail and she sees two cars come streaming out pontiac trail make a hard right into this dirt road into through this dirt road which goes all the way into the back of the farm and don well sold the FBI at the back of the farmer. These guys was a pre dug hole redouble so Monica Wells sees McMaster and she tells him a story talk about cheese. It was a strange thing. These cars came roaring up at McMaster. He said he basically threatened her. You know blondes. Who talked to you? Brush don't get old. You know so. He made some crack of it at one time. Donovan Wells was represented by a lawyer named named Jim Ellesmere. He says wells told him a similar story on July thirtieth nineteen seventy five in that farmhouse kitchen with his wife. Donovan Wells was convinced he saw Jimmy Hoffa's body getting buried. He observes out the kitchen window of mcmasters farmhouse. A Eh Beckel digging and then awaits sheet and Abbadi dropped into the whole. I believe that Hoffa was murdered on that. I think the cars roaring up. I think that was those were the death was those were the death. Awful is one of those cars and he was murdered the F. B. I.. Dug Up that farm and found nothing but Dan Mold Daya throws an interesting wrinkle into that episode. He says Donovan in Welsh showed him a diagram of the farm with the exact location of that whole worry claim to have seen someone dump a body a diagram the FBI used to pick their spot for the two thousand six excavation. And I'm looking at. I'm looking at Dan's diagram. The Got South in North Mixed up the barn was over here. They dug the averted the they adverted the NAP. The diagram that dod had dropped for them didn't bring him up from lexicon and they dug in the wrong place. Does that mean HOFFA's body might be buried on that farm and Milford Modena's says he now believes the body was is there originally but that it was then taken to a landfill in New Jersey operated by a guy named film of Scotto Mascot was a soldier in the East Coast Genovese crime family and he told Dan Moday about a day in nineteen seventy five when his friend Hitman. SALGA LEO holed up in a truck doc. And I'm sitting with till on his front porch. Got The tape recorder on.

"Says that he did that on a he he says he was the only one in the room when that took place. Well, my my guess is even though Richard Nixon pardoned Hoffa and part of that deal was no more union activity Hoffa in. That's what he told us wanted to get back into the union presidency. The rank and file Teamsters loved him. And his his appointed guy. When he got the jailed was Frank Fitzsimmons who started playing ball with the mob more so than Jimmy did. And Jimmy decided he's going to go clean. Now. He saw the light and the mob didn't want him back. That's right. They wanted me and they feared that his popularity would get out of hand. And that he would be he was a threat to them because he was so popular with the rank and file that they had to take him out. Otherwise, he would rise to power and they wanted their hands into that Teamster. Fetch a pension fund, which built Las Vegas and just about everything else that they did it one of the great unsolved crimes. Along with the JFK assassination. Ironically, Hoffa son, James Hoffa is the president of the Teamsters, and he's a pretty above board guy. Yeah. And has been president for quite a while. Now. Absolutely. The the Kennedy situation fascinates me TJ in that Joe Kennedy their father used the mob to get John elected president yet they turned on him later, they turned on the mob when Bobby Kennedy and John Kennedy came in. When when when John Kennedy appointed Bobby is attorney general one of the first things that the Kennedy did even though he was a counsel for the McClellan committee. He went after the mob. He went after people that helped get his brother elected that backfired. I think that had a lot to do with the assassination. Yes. Well, I detail a lot of that in the book, Patty wack. I do think that that's the some some really important things to know when you take a look at the assassination the motive for why JFK would have been killed in particular. Bobby went after Carlos Marcello in New Orleans, you had him deported. Had basically like snatched off the screen and Sloan to go out among land. Don't, you know dumped out of an airplane and said, you know, you're deported. Don't ever come back, which he did he back into the country and got a lawyer and fought it. Yeah. Bobby Kennedy had a vendetta against the mob for some reason. A lot of people believe that he was deliberately doing it as an act of rebellion against his father because he knew many of these people were associates of his father. And so he did this deliberately almost out of spite. And when John John Kennedy gets assassinated, the anyone knows who's read the biographies and Bobby Kennedy. He went into Bobby went into a deep depression, huge depression was that he felt guilty. He felt that what he was doing with the mob at Kriens the blow back. They've got his brother killed. So when you know what he was right? Yeah. Well, possibly we'll probably never know definitively. What took place, but one of the most convincing pieces of evidence to me was years later at the time of the church hearings in the late nineteen seventies. That's really when in the wake of the Watergate scandal. Named after Senator Frank church from Idaho. They started to investigate the whole culture of skulduggery that existed in the CIA going back twenty years. And this is when we first learned about the CIA forming a partnership with the mafia them to murder Castro. We learn about assassinations of foreign leaders done by the CIA, we learned of all sorts of covert behavior. A secret government that had been ongoing for twenty years or more than we knew nothing about. And they got into the Kennedy assassination. They dug up evidence it hadn't been grasped by the Warren commission.
