Who was a connected guy was he was there in the state legislature and they popped him for taking a bribe from this local farmers dealer in order to to try to a change some legislation to make it easier on the fireworks developer.

Johnny dio gets fifteen votes on the in order to help. Help, Jimmy get. Established. Back in back at this time until the nineteen ninety s teamsters elections were not they were not general elections you were you were elected by by upper managed by by the president of locals and by the vice president's in the teamsters board. So the general elections you didn't didn't count it all. But if you have fifteen locals in your pocket, that means you have fifteen votes, it wasn't. There was no general elections. So Victory Sel who was the journalist he discovers this and he writes about the corruption in these locals and especially about Johnny and Jimmy Hoffa, and this is bad because Jimmy Hoffa was was moving up towards president. So Johnny Dio had one of his thugs throw acid in victory Zell's face..

"Following a few anonymous tips, the FBI searched all the mafia own funeral parlors in Detroit for Jimmy's ashes. They found nothing, but they did find Jimmy's hair in the trunk of that Mercury Marquee. However according to Shirin. Jimmy was never in the trunk. The FBI also searched the house where they hit supposedly took place. And while they did find blood, it didn't match Jimmy's still this story gave the FBI enough to question nine men. They believed were involved in the disappearance before a judge, they were Anthony Tony Pro Provenzano. Stephen. And Thomas, and Drena Russell Bufalino Salvatore and Gabriel Guglielmo Chuckie. O'Brien. Anthony. Tony, Jack Jack Loney and of course frank the Irishman Sheeran, they were all represented by Jimmy's former attorney. Bill Bufalino. Every one of them pleaded the fifth sheeran even pleaded the. When asked if the prosecutors yellow pen was yellow since the FEDS had no concrete evidence for a conviction, they offered immunity to anyone who came forward with information. About Jimmy's death or otherwise they wanted to put these men in prison for something. Especially, if they were going to get away with killing Jimmy Hoffa in nineteen, seventy, six charges rolled in Sal, Leo and Tony Pro were indicted with murder charges while Tony. Jack was convicted of tax fraud. Russell Bufalino was found guilty of extortion and the Andretti brothers and Gabri Guglielmo were charged with Labor racketeering meaning they exploited union workers for Prophet then in nineteen, eighty, eighty-two, sixty, two year old. Sharon was found guilty of eleven instances of labor racketeering. He was sentenced to thirty two years in prison. Check Yo Brian was cleared of suspicion by July. Thirtieth nineteen, eighty-two, the US government finally declared Jimmy Hoffa. Dead. Most of those men remain suspects in Jimmy's case remains open today. Sheeran story is accepted by some as a confession. But others close to Jimmy like his foster son Chuckie. O'Brien discredit Sharon's account as a work of fiction. Chucky claim that Sharon was known to be a pathological liar and shouldn't be trusted Jack. Goldsmith CECCHI stepson claimed Sheeran. Story was by far the greatest depiction of a false charge against my stepfather. Goldsmith worked for years to clear his stepfather's name. But let's consider the source here. Perhaps chucky the one person who wasn't. Wasn't charged with the crime is just trying to protect himself. Of course, he's not going to admit to his involvement or say Sheeran story is true. It's also important to note that Frank Sheeran denied involvement with Jimmy's murder for years in nineteen, ninety-five. Sheeran claimed that Salvatore Brazilio had killed Jimmy Hoffa, he didn't confess anything until he wrote his book which wasn't published until two, thousand, four a year after he died. Either way he lied at some point, notably, an early publishing deal for I. Heard you paint houses was thrown out. Sheeran was caught forging documents for the book including a fake letter from Jimmy. The letter was supposedly from the seventies, but forensics determined. It was written in the ninety s and called it laughable forgery. It's clear Sheeran was capable of ally. But the question is, was he doing it to protect himself and the men he was loyal to or was he just another person trying to make a buck off of the Jimmy Hoffa conspiracy due to the lack of evidence, and the fact that most of the suspects are now dead, we'll have to form our own conclusion. Which is why we're giving this a seven out of ten. Even if it wasn't Sheeran, who pulled the trigger events describes seem like a plausible final chapter in Jimmy. HOFFA's life. Jimmy upset the mob and the mob is well mob. If some was a threat, they took care of it. Sharon happened to be one of their most loyal hitmen and he was close to Jimmy Hoffa. I agree the most plausible theory points to Frank Sheeran. But unfortunately after forty four years of searching for Jimmy Hoffa's remains, there may never be a conclusive and his story. His family may never get the closure they deserve. His body may never be found his true story never told Mont one thing's for certain. Karma caught up with the duplicitous union leader. If he'd kept his dealings with the mob, the federal government and the teamsters above board, he never would have gone to that final lunch at the matches Red Fox restaurant.

"This is kingpins apar- const original. I'm Melissa and I'm kate every day in May we're featuring the quote by an iconic crime figure teaching us in their own words what it takes to survive in the underworld. Today's quote is from Union. Organizer Jimmy Hoffa when Mafia hitman. Frank the Irishman Sheeran was looking for work and associates arranged a phone call with the infamous union man. Soon as he picked up the phone office said I heard you paint houses. This was a coded phrase painting. Houses was a reference to the way contract killers often splattered their targets. Blood on walls as though they were painting with it similarly. If a Hitman did carpentry it meant he made Coffins Aka. He dispose of the body himself. Hoffa rose to prominence as a union organizer during a strongly anti Labor period of American history. So acts of violent brutality like painting houses are doing carpentry or often necessary. Hoffa's passion for Labor Organization began when he was only seven years old and his father. A coal miner died of lung disease. Clearly his job in the dirty minds choking on coal dust had contributed to the fatal illness but there was nothing for Hoffa to do. The business owners had all the power when Hoffa was nineteen in the Early Nineteen Thirties. He worked on the docks unloading produce from ships and transferring it onto trucks. The pay was low and working conditions. Were poor so he organized the other dockworkers into a strike. Right as a shipment of overripe. Strawberries arrived his bosses concerned. The produce would spoil met Hoffa's demands just a few hours later fee. Early success earned him reputation as a labor organizer when the dockworkers applying to join the powerful. Teamsters union the teamsters gladly added them to their ranks and groomed hoffer for leadership position but half wasn't universally loved even amongst the Union men a few years after he joined a group of teamsters. Detroit threatened to split off and form their own chapter. This would have been disastrous to Hoffa. Unions were only powerful so long as they were united if dueling laborers competed against one another they both be crushed by their employers. Hoffa was willing to do anything to shut down the rival chapter so he called in a favor. His ex girlfriend had married a chauffeur. Who worked for Mafia so and after his death she dated another mobster with a few phone calls. Hoffa introduced himself to organized. Crime connections and the rival Union abruptly disbanded from there. Hoffa cemented his relationship with the most powerful mob bosses of the era by the time he became the president of the teamsters union in Nineteen fifty eight forty five year old. Hoffa had a wide network of Mafia contacts. They were always willing to do a favor. For Him. And HOFFA repaid generously. He maintained a belly respectable image by employing slang and double entendre. 's He never said what he really meant. So he couldn't be blamed for the occasional hits. He benefited from like when he asked Sheeran if he painted houses right before the Irishman committed an advantageous murder. But eventually HOFFA's corruption caught up with him at two PM on July Thirtieth nineteen seventy five. He called his wife from matches. Red Fox Restaurant. He'd planned to have lunch with a few mobsters but they hadn't shown up that phone call was the last time anyone ever heard from Jimmy Hoffa. Most historians believe he was killed by a mob contact but it's impossible to say for sure because his body was never found Jimmy Hoffa's unsolved disappearance is a fitting end for a man who always in ambiguities. Thanks for listening. We'll.

I've found is going to be so much more intensity bracing myself because we were we were we were reacting to your brace held back because you are clearly both. I thought that you were you.

He Man yes will hold up. I liked you who plays skeleton for Oh Not Dolph lundgren frank no and gala. Yeah that's an he lo- he's the only person who hasn't disowned the film. Because kids liked it. He played a very very strange skeletons. You're also you know some toy lines. Just don't have the narrative Haft to hold a feature you know my gosh even had man at arms in there anyway. What else was Franklin Gallon Yeah he's in tons of stuff he's in he's in a bunch of stuff but he was not in the HOFFA investigation allegation. No returns you to to wrap this one up in June of twenty thirteen the FBI gets another tip and they search a field in Oakland Township Michigan. That's about twenty miles away from where Hoffa was last seen. It was a guy vaulting crime named Tony's rally not to stereotype. I put this. Is Tony Heavy. Tail and Zarella you gave the gave the authorities info about where he said Hoffa was buried he also described how Hoffa died. He said Oh yeah. He's the he's the person who said that Hoffa was hit on the head with a shovel. Them buried alive live but she said this an e book that he was selling for profit and nothing came of it. So either the authorities or bad at digging gene or Zarella was misnomer remembering but at this point no one no one has verified any remains. It's the closest they've come would be those strands of hair with off his DNA. But this also leads us to controversies. The Irishman is based on as we said a single book. Both Scorsese and Deniro who plays Sheeran described the character. She ran in the film as a fictional persona based on or loosely inspired hired by the real guy and furthermore not all HOFFA experts agree with Sheeran story. A couple of them think it's total malarkey. Okay Oh yeah. The author Dan Will Dea. He wrote the book. The HOFFA wars and he's been researching the disappearance of this gentleman for God about four years So He was speaking with Robert Deniro in twenty fourteen and he basically was trying to ward off Deniro saying that he you know he's he's got all these doubts about sheer in story telling the Niro that Shearim brand were for. Let's say essentially running a con job abondoned euro saying this is. You should not be doing this. Why would you make this movie But again like the pretty. This is a pretty interesting story even if it's not true I would say it's pretty good storytelling and and it makes me WANNA watch it. Are we in spoiler territory here for the film. I feel like we've kind of danced around it right We can yeah. We could go ahead. Let's do this spoiler countdown. Because it is a new Phil right three two you and one I was I didn't I didn't hadn't done my homework. Is that much before watching. This I knew was based on a book. I did not realize that it was meant to be unequivocally like this guy killed Jimmy Hoffa. This is a win. The moment in the film were that happens. I wasn't expecting it and then then. I immediately googled Irishman fiction. You know I think that's sort of the consensus is that it's a little more fiction or at least you know conflation of fact and fiction is pure nonfiction storytelling because it again is based on one book. One man's account deathbed confession. Essentially you know this guy did not live much longer. Pass this interview. And that's that's got dramatized in the film as well the fact that he is delivering this story story to the perspective camera which is supposed to be the journalists. Have here. which is? You're the stand for that kind of as a viewer. Excellent film but when I saw that I was like Whoa okay. I guess we're this is sort of a hybrid thing. I'm seeing here like once upon a time in Hollywood for example But if you're to believe the book then this happened. I do want to bring something up my my father-in-law talk with me about this. Pretty extensively his. He's also so a Tony and he told me that without getting into too much detail. If this kind of thing was going to go down with somebody like Jimmy Hoffa the only way you could pull it off is to get one of his closest associates or friends to do it himself because he's so protected so it would would make sense for Sheeran's character to actually be the one who's able to get close enough to to do it because we haven't really talked about this exactly but I mean they're basically weekly brothers. Yeah in the film and there's another character the Bufalino crime family whose plea Russell's played by Joe pesci wonderful Performance The three of them are kind of inseparable. They're they're almost like a family But Jimmy in particular gets a really close relationship with his daughter and that's the whole thing But yeah he is trust them like a like a blood brother. One of the other reasons I mean. Think of the logistics. If you're trying to pull off a job like this you you have somebody who not only has a a protective close circle but they also have a established schedule. Oh calendar people know where and when they're supposed to be at the majority of times. It's not like if you're just doing you know if you're ages landing in a strange town finding someone under a bridge that no one will miss for a few weeks like this is an established thing where you have you know you have have at most probably a few hours to get out of town. So it's I it it definitely. I think your father in law is on the money money. Yeah and it's kind of scary but Yeah let's let's continue so Dan. Monday has his own theory. He believes Hoffa's disappearance was in his mind. A New Jersey operation. He said he's interviewed all the suspected killer's in his decades long search for the truth of the matter and he. He thinks that it's most likely that it was a production of New Jersey. Operators Paul Mission Control Deck and raised a great point off air earlier. When when we were talking you said one thing that he found One thing that he found compelling was that the story Sheeran's account felt all kind of understated like the way knoll depicted it. This this death is you know there's not a lot of gravitas buildup. It feels feels abrupt and brutal if that is this last one was last one. Promise if that is Jimmy. HOFFA killed himself. We didn't talk Mike about this. We're not gonNA talk too much about it because there's not a ton of evidence to lean on here but what if he committed suicide which as we all know is the fancy Z.. Pants CRAVAT wearing word. For faking one's death It is very very difficult to do successfully. If you want to make any money It is is not impossible to do if you wanna just disappear and live by their wits or if you have access to someone who makes fairy accurate idea of some sort right right could he have gone with the Federal Witness Protection Program. Could he have gone with your with the Could've gone with the institution. Yeah sometimes called. witless protection And if so what happened to well we know that. Jimmy Hoffa died for legal purposes on July Thirtieth Nineteen eighty-two. Here's declared legally dead as we record. Today's episode his disappearance and his likely death have yet to be confirmed. Let's do a little math. If he were alive in two thousand nine hundred as record this he would be a hundred and six years old that means even if somehow actually went off the grid you know changed his name to Hemi Java or whatever and lived in a small town in Saskatchewan or something he probably already passed away but that hasn't stopped the investigation. As a matter of fact. This is one of the things we can leave you with the film and the book that we've mentioned today may have inspired. US investigators to get back on the case. This is so this is December nineteen. This is right now as we're recording. This as the Irishman has come out there's an interview with us. Attorney Matthew afew Snyder and Sky was asked by a reporter by someone. What do you? What do you think about the Irishman? What are your thoughts will? His statement was Certainly intriguing. I will talk about this but not now I have a lot of thoughts about it. It's unresolved I have my own theories there. There will be more to come on this Mu. Yeah I mean I you know I didn't mean to dismiss this whole thing as being like a some sort of fantasy. Obviously there's there's information in this film and in this book that is meaningful But you can draw your anybody like this is actually really close to the story. Surely there's GonNa be some stuff that there's a ring of truth to or that knows unequivocally is true and I'd be interested to hear this perspective. I think that is the people that are still alive that I think that can really shed some light on which parts of this and that's yet to be determined and this is also tuck duct duct situation. Because many of the people who would've been in their prime indirectly involved have passed on. That's just how you know. Just how the body crumbles right and yeah it makes me. It makes me wonder. If a deathbed confession has already occurred just Kinda went unnoticed glues. The family the surrounding people were just like okay. Whatever whatever GRANDPA or or or even cramp? Oh what are you saying sh Komo no no no no no we. Don't talk about GRANDPA Kampot supposed to be married to get the pillow. I'm just dark. I apologize they take. Hey we're gonNA take a quick trip over. The giants stadium is going to be fine. GRANDPA just come with us. View is from outside the play. Oh this is terrible. Is that field of dreams right now so we at this point passed the torch to you fellow listeners. What do you think has this been solved? Unofficially the way that the former agent in charge of the investigation believes that has will the answer to Jimmy. HOFFA's disappearance Durance is widely suspected death. Ever come to light.

"And we're back now. Let's get into some of the official attempts to find a Jimmy. HOFFA were to recover his body or even to locate him if he was still alive. so let's get. Let's jump to nineteen eighty eighty nine to the FBI. And Kenneth Walton. He's the agent in charge of the FBI's Detroit office and he was speaking with the Detroit. Great News in one thousand nine hundred nine and he was talking about how he knew what had happened to Hoffa and we have a quote from him here and comfortable. I know who did it. But it's never never going to be prosecuted because we would have to divulge informants confidential sources Informants Comma confidential sources. Ci He is. Yeah well now. Let's just say I can imagine in a case like this with somebody. Like Jimmy. Hoffa the has so many connections actions to probably multiple organized. Criminal Organizations That if you did let say charge somebody that you knew where you were aware of. Who did it but if by doing that? It's GONNA compromise like two or three major. Let's say vice investigations or you. You know Investigations conspiracy like that would be a hard. That'd be a difficult choice to make at least just to find the killer or or to apprehend the killer of another known criminal or associated. Serious says why would why would you give up on this other thing. That is viable right now. Just to just to close that case e-eh because if I don't WANNA put words into the mouths of law enforcement here but I think it's a fantastic point because if you think that someone has already inherently corrupting kind of a dirt bag for one reason or another then do you feel the same moral obligation to pursue a case especially if it means pursuing that case May Preclude your ability to lock up other living criminals. Who are out there still doing things that you find morally or legally terrible? That's a really good point man. I mean it would. It would make sense that Walden at least believed truly believed he knew. Yeah and I would say also I would say also to as as anyone in the enforcement community listening to the show today include Aaron Essay Intern. Steve Steve knows. Full well I imagine that the vast majority of professionals working in those fields would say well. It doesn't matter whether I like someone who has some of a crime. It's my job. It's my career correct but it is a cold hard fact that somebody somebody somewhere would have to make the decision to you. Know if if there was in this is a big. If here if there was a conflict in that way away there were speaking of here somebody would have to make the decision to either continue searching for Hoffa and going down those leads or saying okay. We got to leave this alone. Yeah Yeah I mean it's true. It's true the search continues in two thousand one You know we mentioned earlier the lack of DNA evidence for we're testing now forensic DNA is thing friends Dina investigation rather in two thousand one. These hair strands found in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy five five mercury marquee linked Hoffa to a vehicle that authorities believed was used in this disappearance. This vehicle. This mercury mercury was owned by a friend of office named Charles Chuckie O'Brien and they were actually. They were actually friends. Police and Survivors verse members of his family. Had always believed that. O'Brien played some sort of role in the disappearance. But O'Brien for decades had denied being involved in shape form or fashion. He said in fact Hafa never even been a passenger in in his car. Now just the tip here for all the near dwells in the crowd today if you WanNa stonewall that's a pretty. That's a pretty good way to do it. You know what I mean. That's like just under the level of playing so dumb that you say I own a car. Okay we found these hairs of Jimmy. HOFFA's is in your car. He's never even been in their car. What's fair guys? This is a lot for me to take in a UH cash but But this lead this search also petered out because you see authorities linked Hafa offer us some strands of hair to the car but they were not able to determine when hoffa would have been in the car. This also could mean that since he and Chucky Hang Out A lot that maybe the hair just got on some trucks clothing or something and I think we may be buried the lead here. A little bit. Chucky was More than just a friend friend. He was Hoffa's adopted son that's right and the weights in the movie. I was a little confused about it too. Because there's a scene where somebody pulls a gun on Hoffa offer. During one of his trials like corruption trials and Chucky kick the crap out of the guy and Hoffa makes a big scene Bisazza. My boy I arrays them or whatever you run from a knife. You're Jaya God. He's charged a gun exactly Point being It was at his blood sign. It wasn't his biological biological son. But essentially was someone had taken under his wing and referred to more or less as adopted since then. My question is surely if they were as close as as as record indicates he would've been in that car before he's never been in my car. What is the car I have a car? Don't understand Charles W chuckie O'Brien so there were more searches. They've continued. We mentioned that two thousand twelve search Based on the testimony of Shirin or the statements of Sheeran investigators did search residence based on a tip. Two thousand twelve. The didn't they didn't find anything and found some blood. But it wasn't office you. I think every time tame Sheeran Ed Sheeran no raw. Oh you know power the better teaching myself here. Yeah that wasn't me you know I remember understood. Why wasn't she woman because there was this internal consistency man? Yeah and then she raw like going to be hero. That'd be cool. Thunder Cat sky. Was the superior muscled mutant show in my opinion. I wasn't or cats. Oh aw well. We're doing the LO FI dub step. That was kind of the Hank Hill. I've found is going to be so much more intensity bracing myself.

"Greta Gerwig reunites with her lady. Bird star search or Ronin in the new film little women in Gerwig Adaptation Ronin Stars as Louisa May alcott headstrong heroine Jo March film critic. Justin Chang has this review over the past few weeks. I've had people ask me about the new little women with equal parts excitement and nervousness. Was it any good after so many earlier. Screen adaptations of Louisa May alcott's beloved novel. Aw from the Nineteen thirty-three Katherine Hepburn Film to Gillian Armstrong's nineteen ninety-four version. Did we really need another go round with the march sisters. I'm happy happy to report that the answer to both questions is a resounding yes. Greta GERWIG has reshaped. That's novel with a touch that feels both faithful and radical. She wants to give us all the warm homespun pleasures and emotional satisfactions of little women. The period costumes. The sisters fireside chats some scuffles their verbal emotional sparring matches with the boy next door. Laurie but GERWIG also wants to hold this. Well worn text up to the light to to approach it from a fresh perspective and even consider some of its flaws and compromises. Her boldest stroke is to shake up the chronology cutting between two timeframes frames that begins seven years apart when the movie opens. SEAR Ronin Brash ambitious. Joe March is already in New York pursuing her dream of being in a writer the first scene finds her meeting with a publisher. A sly tracy letts and arguing over the plot and the fee of a story. She submitted Joe. Joe Is treated as a stand in for alcott herself who also had to negotiate to protect her work right from the start. Gerwig makes clear that this will be a story about the limited the opportunities that were then available to women especially women artists. That's also true of Joe's youngest sister. Amy Played by a vicious Florence pugh. She's in Paris studying to be a painter but she knows she'll have to marry well to secure her future. While there she runs into Lori perfectly played by Timothy Chaumet in full tussled heartthrob mode. They argue over the subject of marriage and a wealthy young suitor. Who's been courting amy? I've always known I would marry rich. Why should I be ashamed of that? Need to be shamed of as long as you love. Well I believe we have some power who we love. It isn't something that just happens to a person. I think the poets might disagree. Well I'm not a poet. I'm just a woman and as a woman. There's no way for me to make my I own money not enough to earn a living or to support my family. And if I had my own money which I don't that money would belong. Belong to my husband the moment we got married and if we had children they would be his not mine they would be his property. So don't sit there and tell me that marriage is an economic proposition opposition. Because it is may not be for you but it most certainly is for me by contrast the eldest March sister. Meg played by Emma Watson Watson with her husband John for love and doesn't regret it despite their everyday struggles with money they still live in their Massachusetts hometown. Asked us the shy I Beth. March played by Eliza scanlon. WHO's already sick and growing steadily weaker? Although no prior familiarity with little women is necessary to enjoy this movie. Gerwig knows that many in the audience will know the story well and that's why she feels liberated tell it as irreverently as she does here after her following the grownups sisters separately for a while she takes us back to their girlhood years when they were all under the same roof. There's the party where Joe meets and dances with Lori. The Time Amy Burns Joe's manuscript out of spite the kindness of Laurie's grandfather sweetly played by Chris. Cooper who gives Beth his piano. There is the warm angering presence of Laura dern as the sisters loving mother Marmi and also the sour condescension of Meryl Streep as their rich imperious aunt march. These moments overlap with later ones including Joe's spirited literary arguments with a professor in New York. Played by the brooding French charmer. Louis Got Al Has Ladybird GERWIG racist through every scene with a furious velocity she combines overlapping dialogue warling camerawork work and quick cuts to exhilarating effect. You feel as if you're in the room with these characters swept up in their domestic dramas at the same time. There's something I'm deeply piercing about. The Way Gerwig keeps flashing backward and forward so that past and present seem to be echoing each other while the structure takes some getting used to it it begins to pay off emotionally in a way that I've never seen little women do before the happy moments feel all the more fleeting the tragic ones all the more inevitable Emma Watson and Elisa scam and make a lovely Megan Beth but their characters feel secondary by design. This little women is a fierce tug of war between Joe and Amy Amy and Syria Ronin and Florence. PUGH are blazingly good as two highly competitive sisters who are more alike than they care to admit both are equally determined hermit to forge their own paths in art and in love speaking of love alcott famously had a different ending in mind from the more conventional romantic antic one. She was pressured into writing by her readers and her publisher one hundred fifty years later. GERWIG sets out to gently redress that wrong. With a a clever Meta fictional twist that both honors and subverts the original it's enormously satisfying to seek gerwig bridge the gap between the expectations of readers then and the desires of audiences. Now she hasn't just made little women her own. She's made a movie that rightly belongs to all of us. Justin Chang is a film critic for the L. A. Times Justin. We'll.

"Hitman. ICEMAN ICEMAN said HOFFA's body was putting a fifty five gallon drum and set on fire for a half an hour or so. The newsroom was welded shut buried. You didn't junkyard. And the drum was supposedly later dug up But a they put it not sure what they're talking about the body or the whole drama and then they smashed it. They put it in a car and they smashed into the compressor and the ship that that Japan for scrap and then we put in a rocket ship shot the entire body and they burned it for thirty men. Trying to seal into there followed a very strict recipe. Well we sous vide it in this guy xactly right so mythbusters did Jimmy Jimmy Hoffa special where they scan the ground at giants stadium with a radar to see if there were human remains under it and this was confirmed later when they tore down the stadium and look physically underneath and despite all that idiots from New Jersey still make dig here signs take them to the the new real and there can proud of it to the top Reverend's Quality Oak Tag Agam crushing this Joe CBS. I couldn't think of an acronym but I'm sure but isn't that the wrong sadie. Not right like I feel like did get dude died in Detroit. Maybe his body is somewhere in the Greater Detroit area. No but don't hate on this New Jersey's entire tourism economies clearly based on dead body to work. What else do they have? Here's another complete sleep misquote. Police took samples from the ground under a suburban Detroit driveway at least during the day after continuing after a person reported reported having witnessed the burial of body there around the time of Hoffa's nineteen seventy-five disappearance tests by Michigan State University anthropologist. This found no evidence of human remains. I love this guy. He's like he sees the damn body being buried these address. Nothing and then later that could be hop might might WANNA check also look mythbusters out a metal detector and some guy at Michigan state grabbed of dirt spontaneous combustion in another gangster said. They basically played the shell. Game with HOFFA's corpse. Tony's really said that he was buried in a shallow grave and they had planned to move him around bit but those plans deteriorated like a corpse in a shallow grave. He said that the location of the grave was near a field near the restaurant where Hoffa went missing in two thousand thirteen. Police dug up the area that he indicated and found nothing but the case remains open well to be fair. If the area indicated was just Detroit -TROIT's in general the police would have otherwise decoys the finally Michael Frenzy The New York mob boss claim to know. Oh where Hoffa was in an interview with a Youtube Channel. He said that he knew who the killer was to. His claim is that the commission the five mafia bosses in New York. Doc controlled organized crime across the country ordered it. He said quote. I can tell you the bodies very wet Kennedy and and the shooter is still alive today but currently in prison okay boomer okay but why would all those mobsters go to jail Douai for asking Jimmy the Sphinx Komeito wherever the fuck that is we could get answers answer to this shit. That isn't in the form of a fucking riddle the FBI did release a pretty obvious statement in the form of fifty six page memo in the Detroit. Free Press side note. Is there a page limit at which memo is no longer think novella. They don't speculate late on any of the information or facts regarding the disappearance itself but do speculate on the motive in it. They claim quote Hoffa was murdered at the behest of organized. Crime Crime figures who regarded his efforts to regain power within the teamsters as a threat to their control of the Union's pension fund end quote also murderers bad double space doubles as of Orange. We're the I think. The main main gist of this is that there were certain people who knew what happened to Hoffa and where the corpse was but they never said anything about it to anyone or if they did they were already recognized liars in so no one believed him so hard to find an honest mob murderer. These yeah can't trust them they should unionize. The one thing that isn't mentioned in the article is but it's pretty evident is the shit that this guy and other corrupt union officials pulled fueled Union Nyan distrust in the United Conservatives on both sides of the aisle back then latched onto the crop narrative and use this to discredit unions and help weaken them significantly. Only I know there are a lot of other factors involved in the decline of unions. But this cluster fuck should not be overlooked. Yeah if only unions had been perfect.

"And were back when we left off Jimmy Hoffa law-abiding citizen doing his best. What he had the Italian eye clarity next to overrun so half at that time? He was doing some Amazing Union inning. He was also under investigation and appealing fraud and jury tampering charges. This this is about fifteen years into him. Being President of teamsters and at this point they make Frank Fitzsimmons his vice president. And this I guess is the first time they name Amo. Vp is a direct successor. For that. I guess there was just a vote but they assumed he was going to go to jail and they needed someone there. That could just take over and keep the kickbacks rolling in great and that was our current events news break back. I wish if only we could replace ours with a long dead semi professional mobster. They was having all this trouble with the law. JFK was president. He don't interest in there. It is anyway Eddie. JFK appointed his little brother Robert. We mentioned him earlier as attorney. General interesting thank you For me me. And my family is not nepotism if the president does it down you'll use it later. RFK was supposedly supposedly pissed. He couldn't nail down Hoffa and other union bosses years earlier and he had an ax to grind so he came after Hoffa with guns. Blazing teamsters teamsters parade for Jimmy. Hoffa in Dallas is too obvious stave off these convictions. Convictions for a long time. He was initially investigated in earnest in one thousand nine hundred seven and it would take seven years for him to be finally convicted of a crime. It would be ten before he served any time. He was eventually convicted of attempted. Bribery of grandeur. How is that even a thing like obstructing justice? Yup Yup OPPA was also convicted of fraud in nineteen sixty four this was for improper use of the teamster pension fund quote Hoffa had illegally arranged several large pension fund loans to leading organized crime figures and quote. They were good for thirteen years in prison. Tried to appeal these sentences for three years and was unsuccessful. Damn thirteen years. You can get more time for very obviously not killing a lady in Texas. Yeah so just before. He enters prison the contingency vice president Frank Fitzsimmons takeover now. The reason he was chosen by half in in the first place is that he seemed really loyal to Jimmy. He owed pretty much all of his success to Hoffa. He was local to him as well and huff had gone to great lengths to consolidate date power as the president of the union run it unilaterally but once fit simmons was appointed as president. He started to undo the work that Jimmy Dunn and he relinquished. Relinquish some of that control that the president had. Jeez you caught a prison. One time everything falls apart around story. He undid everything he had done. What did you like disorganized? The worker give back a couple of snow. Okay you're presenting that like a joke which means you're not super up to speed on what unions have been doing so maybe you should pick somebody who's one of WHO's major qualifications was. He was nearby look at him. Rock seventy five years after go into jail. HOFFA had his sentence commuted to time served and he had to stay out of union leadership leadership for a decade. The Guy Responsible President Richard Nixon interesting Hoffa also got his pension of one point. Seven million dollars is a lump sum like he was some kind of a lot of winter I guess was there really was this was an unprecedented payout by the way and just two random facts here the I. B. T. had always endorsed Democrats however the teamsters endorsed Nixon in the last election. Interesting you you. He thinks I'm crazy as the next guy and the next guy is heat but an innocent was behind anything that I don't know about is a bridge too uh-huh and even though Hafa had his sentence commuted. He was still pissed that he couldn't play union games so he started suing the Nixon Administration nation. To get this overturn. That doesn't work though. Yeah maybe because he was suing them for not ignoring the law and now he's also so running into adversity in the union itself as most of the people in it had stopped supporting him he really only still held sway over the local union where he got his start. Detroit local to ninety nine. I know it does seem like you lose some support after going to jail for basically stealing from the people you were hired to represent I mean it seems like that's not a lock doc. We know trump sure is opening in his bid to get back into power. HOFFA tried to make a deal with the mafia one of the local. You leaders and made Guy Anthony. Provenzano was approached to endorse Hoffa. This meeting did not go well quote. Provenzano refused to listen and threaten Hoffa by saying that he would pull out his guts and kidnap his granddaughters. and quote. Ed as you can imagine Hoffa did not take this so well. He retaliated by cooperating rating with investigators and against his Mafia opponents asshole. I'M GONNA go hang out with Robert F Kennedy where it's always safe no matter what and Narcan you gonNA say like. That's so fucking weird threat once you pull out my guts. I have to tell you it's really selfish care so much about Mike Grandkids. I hate to give you notes on Air Bro. You're doing that shit in the wrong. July thirtieth nineteen seventy-five Hafa Autho was supposed to meet up with local mob. Boss Anthony Jack Loney and the guy that threatened to make sausage out of them Anthony Provenzano. He went to the local restaurant called the Red Fox to meet him. He's trying to hide a gun in the toilet tank but seventy five just shooting in the only man. I'm good take flush for his wife at two fifteen and another colleague at three thirty complaining that these these two were late. This was the last time anyone spoke to Hoffa. Well the last time anyone can prove anyway. Spontaneous combustion exact. Ah that night. He doesn't return home and they find his car unlocked at the restaurant. It's six PM.

Where were the existing teams under the road? This Gu quilting under the Road Schreker. I love it. He also tried to bring in airline workers but he did not have the success he had with over the road.

I didn't WanNa go anyway but today we'll be talking about union leader Jimmy Hoffa who nc so you read between the lines. Are you ready to sell up the river literally any price talking skit. I I don't even care to huma. Hoffa Jimmy Hoffa was an American labor union leader when that actually meant something now it means that you're probably late on your mortgage. Yeah he was the president of the International Brotherhood of teamsters which is the truckers union and my dad teamster for several decades could not say this guy's name without calling him a crook he also went missing in one thousand nine hundred ninety five. They declared him dead seven years later but they've never found the remains and there were no convictions in the disappearance it just like Osama bin Laden and JFK. Interesting not at all like no yeah unrelated those people we shots I penciled dammit cancelled episode a hole in the forest take aac three. Jimmy was born in Brazil. Indiana Worst Carnival disappoint a AH fell one can use the bathroom. It was born on February fourteenth nineteen thirteen Valentine's baseball his his dad John Hoffa died. When Jimmy was seven from lung disease and the rest of the family moved to Detroit win? Hoffa was eleven. He quit school at fourteen years old and worked manual labor. Jobs like painting fulltime jean-mrs Apple Tree Shoe would be terrible if someone would paint your house when you at least you know what. This doesn't make any sense. I gotta get the new. y'All remember when people move to Detroit fifties. Yeah they're giving a stipend for that. They've been trying to get back. We have water now. You can drink on bottled some here. Hoffa moved on from painting houses to working in a grocery store chain when he was a teen. He became involved with the Union and organized labor. Around this time the job he was working page. Shitty wages had shittier working conditions and not a ton of job security so think professional snow podcast there with a boss done. That has nobody to blame but himself for his as best does covered. Works didn't do that. That especially since the workers wanted to unionize and Hoffa took the union leadership naturally Hoffa became inspired to work as a union organizer after a run in with an abusive forman when Jimmy stood up to him. The other employees were impressed by him so he moved on from that job and became became an organizer with the teamsters in Detroit local to ninety nine back when threatening people effectively was a valid line. Item on your resume. I I live in the wrong era. How about I fucking kill you? As a negotiation tactic that is sadly underused in today's Labour agree. Now it's fucking starve you and it's used by the other team and I don't mean you're fired and you're GonNa Starve. Congratulations you work at Walmart. Now you are below low the poverty. You made it to starvation cheeses a few years later. While working with non unionized laundry workers on their strike. He meets his soon to be wife. Josephine they married six months later. In September of Nineteen thirty six they go on to have two kids a daughter Barbara and a son James and I wanNA just quote wikipedia. Pedia here so you can hear the house price quote. The HOFFA's paid six thousand eight hundred dollars in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine for modest home in northwest Detroit. The family later owned a simple simple summer. Lakefront cottage in Orion Township Michigan North of Detroit. His son by the way thirty plus years after Jimmy is removed as the teamsters teamsters union president takes over the position. He's been the president since nineteen ninety. Nine yes true fact about that House in Detroit. It's actually worth less now than it was seven. Grandma gives you everything. North of I ninety in in the thirties the forties the teamsters grew pretty significantly in both numbers and power in one thousand nine hundred eighty when they were founded they had seventy five thousand members. There was a push push by Hoffa and other union leaders to consolidate other trucker unions with T- with the teamsters that made their membership grow to one hundred seventy thousand in nineteen thirty six and four hundred twenty thousand in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine and it was over a million by nineteen fifty one off one a bunch. A contract disputes using quickie strikes quickie strikes. We're only one side is happy about the outcome that checks get term and the Secondary Boycotts which leveraged other related industries to pressure Asher to put pressure on another to get them to cave to the demands of the Union would be like a grocery store strike to help get rights for farm laborers. It's hard to wrap your head around it but back then workers actually cared about other workers also since the teamsters were connected to a ton of professions since they delivered raw materials. Finish this project is that are they. Would they use to become the most powerful union in the country right That's why Amazon workers each their own P. Bucket now on everything and hey fun. Fact that secondary boycotts thing literally illegal now. So yeah if you're in a union don't like root too hard for a second bucket per a person shall. We can't even get everyone in the same room to decide that people shouldn't go bankrupt or die if they get sick I try to convince people to take time off of work to strike. Because their neighbors are striking is Utopian dreamscapes. We will never see again something. which I just said about the nineteen seventies seventies and the mob had its dirty hands in the pie to the truckers union were totally in bed with the Mafia? So this means that Hoffa in order to get and maintain power in the unions had to deal with mafia bosses quote he had to make accommodations and arrangements with many gangsters. Beginning getting in the Detroit area organized crime influence over the I bt would expand as the union itself crew and quote okay but Nowadays Union leaders have to get in bed with unsavory unsavory characters like US Congress Giambi two hours so even though Hoffa was a teamster n a union organizer Eiser. He never worked as a truck driver. Or a doc and that's how management works though and that's why it's better in nineteen forty six. In December. Jimmy Hoffa became the president of the Detroit. Local to ninety nine Hoffa received a draft letter for World War Two and he quote obtained a deferment deferment from military service in World War Two by successfully making a case for his union leadership skills being more valuable to the nation by keeping freight running smoothly to to assist the war effort end quote shortly thereafter. He became the head of the Michigan. teamsters dear Uncle Sam. These kneecaps ain't gonNA break themselves. I'M GONNA go ahead and pass La Jim I love it. The actual deferment was based on.

"jimmy hoffa" Discussed on Chicago Dog Walk
"Was supposedly murdered him and they dug up the floorboards and they found they found blood and they that house at the time of the supposed. Jimmy Hoffa murder was going on rented. It was just like a like a Mafia house that they like. You could plausibly. Just walks in you. You know nobody would be there. Kill guy but the blood on the on the floorboards did not match office does not DNA match This and also this Guy Frank Sheeran. He was friends with Hoffa for a long time too but he was like a known like you said a guy who paints houses did a lot outta house painting for the Buffalo Family which was at the time probably the most powerful Mafia family they were out of New York so It was it was one of those things and then you know the when when Hoffa disappeared they did all the things in nineteen seventy five the call the police called the you know the FBI got involved. They questioned people. They questioned Tony Pro and then this Anthony Jack Lonnie who supposedly you know going to meet with him that day. They both had like airtight alibis. So they tony pro said Hey I was playing cars Jersey all these people who can corroborate Jack Laney said he was getting a haircut. So it's like there are no no nobody no witnesses. This is in the to like possible suspects right off the bat have good alibis so it was just like there's just as it is a cold case from the word go and a big part is to get away from Sharon for a second here like you said those guys. Whoever they were with they kept talking about the time They kept talking about the time because they wanted that alibi. Oh by to let people know like Oh yeah two o'clock three thirty four PM. I remember I was with them and they kept saying that time so like of course tell them celebrate. They knew what they were doing. And that makes you think they had some type of influence in this but Frank Sharon why. I think people have problems with him confessing to the crime as he was is pretty he was pretty loose with the stuff he could fast too. I guess and I. That's what everything I've seen. was that they in listen. You're going to see it in the movie star. Like if you're if you don't want whatever there might be spoilers but there's no spoilers I said yes history is history exactly so he liked chartered a mini private plane to Detroit throughout Ohio. And then they said that that that's impossible I don't there's a lot of yeah. There's a lot of conspiracies into believing that Frank Sharon earn liars. Actually Dan Baldia. who was like Jimmy Hoffa expert? He is like on a crusade against the movie. And he's upset with the Niro and Scorsese because like he's you so like you so like stuck in the mud like hey. There's no way frank. Sharon did this in confess. Because he was dying he needed money he was broke. All I don't wow that's kind of a is trying to sell books. That's the background on why Sharon didn't do it. And then you have like you said there's reasonably that he may have done it. Yeah well well The other part of that is you know sharing like it or not. It was a Catholic right so he might have just been confessing like. Just get this off my chest fast like I did it. I am dying I am broke but I am also dying and I don't WanNa take this to my deathbed like that. That's the thing that happens too. So maybe maybe he did do it but you know like you said there. There are some details. That are a little fuzzy where it's like all Sheeran says who is in this car and there's no evidence of him being in like them picking him up at a certain car and then there's the NAF him found in a different car a car. Belonging this Guy Chuckie O'Brien So another Mafia Guy who knew all parties involved so it was like okay like wall then that is a major detail of Sheeran story. That doesn't quite line up because there's no detail in one long car that he supposedly took and there is DNA. In this guy. Chucky O'Brien's car so Chuckie O'Brien he was kind of like a guy who he was almost almost a doofus. I would say what the way they described it right. Yeah like he was just kind of And he just. He wasn't seen like the not the alibi on him. But the like the the discussion couldn't have been chuck. O'Brien is it. He was not a guy that you put out for this job right trusted yes right like this was a job that it would have been very tight slipped. Nominee people would have known in their best guys end of story. Right a guy like sharing. Yes a guy like Sharon not a guy like Chuck Bryant Right. So they're just the people find it hard to believe that they had any this guy anywhere near this and Chuckie. O'Brien has also just vehemently denied any involvement for fifty years or forty years. So it's also you know like so again like maybe I don't know why but I believe them but in that kind of backs it up to it's like if you're you're you have to this is not just maybe Chucky O'Brien's good enough for a normal mob hit. This is Jimmy Hoffa like like. We've talked about like this is a guy who received the presidential part this this guy who's been on national TV with you. Know other presidents I. It's it's insane like how well known and powerful. This guy was so it's not just so you know it's you like you said you'd better use your absolute best guys and and like you can't have big conspiracy 'cause people like the power and they like the credit and someone someone will have you know loose lips sink ships and that's how this thing goes down so you have to have somebody you can absolutely trust and Sharon was a guy that Russell Bufalino absolutely trusted. Yeah and people knew Jimmy Hoffa you know like people knew who he it's not like you could just couldn't make their worst supporters at the time for sure. A lot of the people didn't want him there here at the end when he had his most support at that time. Still in Detroit and it was in Detroit Michigan. You know Also the Detroit mob. I mean it's all title Newark but was there anything else that there was kind of. Yeah so I mean. There's a million theory so I don't if we want to hop onto another one but supposedly office traveling all the time he's in prison and his wife gets a little bit lonely so she actually has an affair. Allegedly now this is according to Guy Tarrant McShane and Terence McShane worked for the FBI and he also was Part of this board that was in charge of like Kinda rebuilding and fixing like like an anti corruption board of teamsters so like not he had. FBI information the also had some inside information and he wrote a book as well and he said that you know this was the thing that you know. HOFFA's wife Josephine had an affair with kind of a low level Mobster guy in Detroit Hafa finds out about it and he goes to like the Don on of the the head of the Detroit. Mafia's this Guy Torelli and it's really go. Listens to his story. Goes Okay and then he's just like wow like office completely we lost. It has no respect. Can't handle like his own wife can't handle like this again. This is another time it was like hey like take care of your your own problems yourself with your family and and so they just kind of lost you know the kind of started looking at him in a different light kind of way so now it's like like they already had problems with Hoffa. I think he's losing his grip lake totally that and they're worried that he's GonNa Start blabbing about how deep the connections between the Mafia and because it's it's like you're willing to tell me about problems with your wife. What else are you willing to say? So now they like now. They feel like they can't trust him To handle these problems and keep his mouth shut so they get kinda get worried and again. It's like goes back to the issue about the money like they still want access to that money. So now he becomes like an expendable and Person and kind of somebody that they just they just can't trust and it's also important in our. I'm sorry we didn't mention this already. He was already open or he was working with people to against them up wasn't wasn't he working with authorities. Well that was part of his case before that he was leaking stuff against both the I bt and the Mafia so like Hoffa's like playing every which way and like people they they know like the Mafia. Yeah and you know once you get in that situation you you're asking for trouble. Yeah you're you're toast toasted. That's the truth and Richard Kuklinski. If we want to go to another suspect if you WanNa talk about his situational yes so talk about another guy who the the mafia absolutely trust as a Hitman so he is another guy who ties to the The BUFALINI family The story goes oppose a he showed up to the Red Fox with Tony Pro and then there is like an unnamed driver driver and so the driver twenty pro sitting shotgun took Linski in the back with Hoffa and now Hoffa you know people all these stories with Hoffa getting into a car right because he just assumes that at the meeting location has been changed and he's like pissed off because they're late but like whatever. Let's let's go so he gets into the car and Twenty programs could Kalinski Signal bashes him in the head with job job. Breaker stabs them and then they pull off to the side of the road and throw them in a body bag. Put Him in the trunk and then they take that too. Is that the one they took to an incinerator raider. Yes that's the one that. Put them in a fifty five gallon. Oh yeah fifty. Five Gallon oil drum welded it shut and then buried it so that was like that was the story that that's where HOFFA ended up buried in oil drum then they actually because the FBI they had like some other case and somebody said they had information about the whereabouts of of of Of HOFFA and the Mafia found out about that supposedly they dug up that oil drum. Put it in the back of a car. Put the car through a compactor and shipped it to Japan so like to be recycled and used for other auto parts. So it's just like a steel scrap car with an oil drum containing Jimmy Hoffa's body audience and then the defense against that as they would never be dumb enough to send a body across fucking the ocean that and then also Hof is not a dummy..
A Look At The Latest Movies In Theaters
"Movies tonight's premiere a lot of really interesting movies premiering tonight including the latest in the terminator series in the first movie that James Cameron's been involved in in a bit joining us now to talk about terminator dark fate and a few others is sorry bunch Washington post center stage contributor and movie critic joining us here in the here who have program said bunch good to talk to you about friends here in Cleveland how are I'm great Bob I'm great it is it is kind of a weird weekend at the at the movies you've got you've got a couple of pseudo award hi quite releases coming out this weekend you've got motherless Brooklyn right which is the ad Norton new are about life in New York City in the in you know thanks Vera it it is that the the problem with this movie is that it is the features as Norton doing that very ed Norton the actor leaf thing you know if you've seen the trailer a hundred times and I have a you know that this is you know that this is going to be which he you know kind of should the shuddering map and then you also have which is the story of Harriet Tubman I let me see if I may so he let me ask you a bit more about motherless Brooklyn because I am an Edward Norton fan and I'm I mean going going back to the illusionist I mean it I mean virtually all of the twenty fifth hour is that the kind of thing you're talking about when you see a typical Edward Norton type of it is a very it's a very after the manner performance yeah he's doing he's doing if he played a character who has as a mental disorder if they it's kind of a rain man white hi situation and you know it it it depends on how much patience you have for that like I it again my my my big complaint here is that the movie is two and a half hours long and the this is the an ad that somebody with limited patient it's hard to do that and so and there's also Herriot which unfortunately I I miss that my my child had the flu so I was not able to get the the the press screening of that but I'm I'm pretty interested in it in part because it makes Hardman look like a walking talking poster for the the the second amendment as she's you know she she has the arm up there she can head back south and and free the slaves I I I I am looking for that I have not actually seen it's like yeah I can't say one way or the other if it is they recommend or not recommend other terminator dark fate is is the big movie out this week of opening wide on you know four thousand three and is the first James Cameron involves terminator then in the the second one then he turned right back yeah and it is also a direct sequel to teach here this is one thing that people are fans if if there are fans out there who have obsessively watched all of the terminator movies you know terminator three terminator salvation terminator Genisys that that there are Connor chronicle this kind of gets all of that the the the with all of that out of existence and it's just the straight world two terminator two which that's great news that's great news because I I'm one of those who skipped all of those sorry I I I I don't know why the genesis and the others did not grab me because I was a huge terminator fan of the first two and I missed all the rest so I kind of thought I can't go see this I will have missed so much so you're saying that matter does not matter if you if you've seen terminator wanted terminator two you're all caught up I think I think most people have just seen terminator one in terminator three honestly I I have a soft spot for I thought it was interesting and there's something kind of different with the with the with the franchise the terminator dark fate starters there were it features the return of Linda Hamilton affair Connor she is back in trying to save a a young girl who lived in Mexico for being a what being wiped out by the terminator that is kind of a mix of the the terminators from the first two movies that if the if gotta act endoskeleton you know the metal and a skeleton with the metal liquid liquid metal poly alloy him make a kind of separate itself the can in separate itself into two sermon acres wow it's not just one and can I come in gonna coming hello and thank you and also a defining this girl is at a argument human I play by mackenzie Davis who who is the is the interesting actress she was on the halt and catch fire the prestige internet TV are you know prestige SL on AMC about the the ride the use a mac whatever Bubba around the figure out so the bunch though about terminator dark fate is is at his age he doesn't look like in cannot be the terminator of the past what role does Arnold play in his terminator by a persona in this thing sure well I I I don't want to spoil too much but but Arnold is also back he he will be back he is back and he is playing a terminator that has that came back from from the past and have kind of that'll that'll down almost the he has he has a family and I I'm not joking not a joke you have a family and his family is a family of five plus I mean I I get was it too much okay bye I got too much it is it is interesting you know there's there's there's a whole gender studies dissertation the written about the evolution of the terminator through through the years you know the in the four and like the role of masculinity in society or something as in the first movie right he's just as big Bob naked that you'd write me right goes around killing people and you know he is very of what product any you know and then in the second movie he had you have to learn to feel any you know he he gave he did he get them humor and you get them on personality and then in this movie he is again almost domesticated and it's very strange to her watch he that play out on screen it's not bad exactly if it's just strange I don't know I mean but the problem with this movie is that it totally fine but nothing more than that and if you if you want to revisit this world and you want to do it with James Cameron I think you need something a little more than fine but I also don't know that there's there's that much more you can do with the terminator movies right if it's a movie about you know sending a robot back into the past to kill somebody who is important to humanity future and you can only do that so many times with the before before the well really run right right well yeah I I just I think it I I think you could I I I I can't I can't give us a strong recommend in the sense that I don't think it's a much the gotta you gotta get out there you're gonna be wowed by it but it's it's okay it's fine you won't hate it if if mediocre we're not gonna see Arnold on skis jumping over cage shark though you're here you're telling me it's it's it's a less okay I feel like that sounds may have jumped the shark when you told me there's a terminator family I don't know how that's going to play out they said the only ask you one other question also opening this weekend I'm AT and if you've seen it or not but I'm interested just because of the heavy weights involved deniro has taken on a break from bashing Donald Trump and decided to make a movie here with Pacino and with

interview with the three of them and you know anytime you see anytime you see deniro and Pacino get together on screen which they have done numerous times it's it's huge it's you know either the chemistry is always perfect and and and it's always it the question is about the story which you'll find out later this morning but I'm also curious to see whether or not Robert de Niro's brand has been damaged or diminished at all because of his you know is this political career now seems to be as important to him is that his acting career and some people love his you know outside interests bashing Donald Trump and some people really resent it'll be interesting to see how audiences respond yeah so it it's on that puts on November twenty seventh in theaters now it in a few theaters now Hampel theaters now and then they'll be on Netflix starting November twenty seventh you know it's interesting because I I it'll be it'll be hard to judge exactly what what the response to this movie is because Netflix doesn't release any actual data you know they they don't release box office data they don't release of the data who actually watch it the movie and how much of it so it's hard it's hard to say if audiences will you know will stay away from that new models sorry is this a new model big you're right I mean it's Netflix produced and I think I saw on exposures today it's a hundred sixty million dollar budget so it's a massive budget movie if I saw that correctly in its Netflix and they are going to put it on Netflix but it's going to have a limited run in theaters is that a new model I don't I don't recall that being a very common thing if it's Netflix for them to put it in the mix we asked for a while they do it they do it for the they do it for you know doctors even type movie the the awards contenders because in order to qualify for the Oscars you have to have a theatrical run in in at least New York and Los Angeles or you know one week or two weeks it if if the thing so they they expand that a little bit and do you know Chicago the others but it is it is not a it is not the standard necklace really followed not the first time they've done that they did that last year for Roma and some of their other movies ballad about their Scruggs and and a couple others and they've they've done it a couple times this year but it is it's very it's very strange because the because of the way they work the major theater chains that want to work with them they have to do the right in the route well I'll tell you what Sonny it's a really interesting mix there's terminator if you're a fan of the series of special the first to go to that one if you can stand two and a half hours of jittery go see motherless Brooklyn and we'll find out next week what you thought of the Irishman sunny bunch Washington Post movie critic thank you so

"jimmy hoffa" Discussed on GONE
"Accounts, and are essentially speculations. Jimmy Hoffa's body has never been found and without that vital evidence to shine the light on what happened all those years ago almost any theory could be true. The first theory is that a hitman named Frank Sheeran executed the hit on Hoffa Sheeran. A high ranking mob affiliate of the buffalo. Lino family and longtime friend of Hoffa recalls. The day in Charles brands two thousand four book. I heard you paint houses Frank the Irishman Sheeran and closing the case on Jimmy Hoffa in the biography. Frank states that he was sent to the red FOX to meet Hoffa for the two pm meeting. He was accompanied by Salvatori Sally, bugs Brig aglow. Tony pros right hand, man. Chuckie O'Brien one of Hoffa's longtime friends, drove them in a maroon mercury that was believed to belong to Jack Aloni son Hoffa recognize the car and the men when they finally arrived at the red FOX he likely assumed that they were there to pick him up, and that the meeting location had changed hafa was era -tated. But he knew he couldn't pass up the chance to make peace with Tony. He got in the car with the men. After a short drive their rive at a house Sheeran. Hoffa got out of the car. O'brien and Sally bugs stayed inside. The car is they weren't important enough to be at a meeting of the significance. But Hoffa trusted Sheeran. Hoffa walked into the house first and as Shirin entered he shut the door behind him. As he entered the foyer off of realized that nobody was in the house to greet them. Oughta began to suspect that he and Shirin were about to be ambushed little did he know that Sheeran was complicit in the plan by Sheeran's account as Hoffa turn to leave the house Sheeran leveled his handgun and shot Hoffa twice behind the right ear Sheeran left immediately, leaving the body and the gun on the floor. Low ranking mob affiliates would later clean up the blood and wipe the house of any evidence. Hoffa's body was cremated. Before he died in two thousand three here told numerous reporters that he murdered Hoffa almost as if confessing his sins Sheeran was one of the most trusted associates of Russell Buffa Lino and extremely powerful mob boss who feared that Hoffa's threats to expose Teamster and mob ties would become reality. Buff Lino would have the authority to order a hit on Hoffa and here in as one of his most trusted and skilled affiliates. Would logically be his picked to execute the plan. Although Sheeran was good friends with Hoffa to he knew that if he were to refuse. Buffalo knows orders. He would risk being killed himself Sheeran's account was fuzzy, but the FBI was able to use his confession to track down the house where the alleged murder took place the physical description he provided matched up and the timing was right to the house wasn't being rented to anyone during. The time period in which the murder took place. Finally within the house, the FBI found the smoking gun or more, specifically, the blood that the gun had shed. There were bloodstains underneath the hardwood floors of the foyer, but after extensive testing, none of the blood was linked to Hoffa's DNA. Frank Sheeran's account was one of the more viable theories on what happened to Jimmy Hoffa. But in the absence of a body or even proof of what really happened that day in nineteen seventy five dozens of other theories have emerged. This leads us to our second theory. Although Hoffa's DNA wasn't found in the house that Sheeran described. They did find Hoffa's DNA someplace else in

Where's Jimmy Hoffa? Oh, I wish I knew. And now, I should say, you know, all the places he could be because I probably he probably isn't together in one piece anywhere. Actually on though. I think I read something like they found where he was killed. In blood trails or whatever like in the bottom of a basement somewhere. But his probably a little bits of pieces all over the country, are are maybe just disintegrated in a big VAT of asset, but our minds could take all over the place as to where Jimmy is poor Jimmy. Yeah. Poor jimmy. But then he kinda did get into bed with them. Maybe the wrong people. Yeah. I think so or I know seriously though, you really didn't work in organized crime Levy worked in financial crime and fraud. Yeah. I spent most of my career doing white collar crime economic fraud. So advanced face games business to business telemarketing fraud Ponzi schemes, that's the kind of thing that I did. And it was fascinating.
