  • They Don’t Make Mobsters like Zip Connolly Anymore

    Howie Carr Show ^ | April 23, 2023 | Howie Carr
    John “Zip” Connolly is apparently one of those hoodlums who cares what his obituary says about him after he’s dead and gone. At age 82, the infamous ex-FBI agent seems obsessed with clearing at least one indelible stain off his remarkably squalid (even by Boston G-man standards) underworld career. He’d prefer not to have “Mob hitman” in the first sentence of his death notice. There’s not much he can do about the racketeering conviction, or all his tawdry connections to the Bulger Crime Family. But “Mob hitman” is a bit much. Sadly, Zip has failed yet again to remove “assassin”...

    Who the heck made this bad decision? And how does it differ from something an embedded Cuban operative in the U.S. might do? After the arrest of Ambassador Manuel Rochas on espionage charges for Cuba, a logical question was whether there were one, two, many, Manuel Rochases (and Kendall Myerses) over at the State Department? What else can one conclude with whoever it was at State who made a decision like this? According to the Washington Times: Homeland Security gave a delegation from Cuba a look behind the curtain at airport operations at Miami International Airport, in a move critics...

    The remains of a 24-year-old U.S. pilot who never returned from a bombing mission in World War II have been accounted for and confirmed, officials from the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency said Monday. Charles G. Reynolds was a U.S. Army Air Forces first lieutenant from Bridgeport, Ohio, the agency said in a news release. In late 1943, he was a pilot assigned to the 498th Bombardment Squadron in the Pacific Theater. On Nov. 27, 1943, the plane that he was a crewmember of did not return from a bombing mission near Wewak, New Guinea, the agency said, because the aircraft...
  • Politico Mocks Buttigieg as Robotic Phony in 'Mayor Pete' Review

    You would think that the mostly MIA Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg would find friendly ground at the liberal Politico but apparently his incredibly insular boring personality is so off-putting that even that periodical is unable to display much enthusiasm about the soon to be released "Mayor Pete" documentary. You don't even need to read very far to find the harsh assessment of reviewer Ruby Cramer since it is shouted out in the title of Monday's review, "‘He’s Comin’ Across Like the F---ing Tin Man Up There’."

    Just mere days after a huge brawl at Miami International Airport, another massive fight broke out in the terminal Tuesday night. The mayhem was captured in cellphone footage taken by multiple onlookers at Gate G-15 by the Southwest Airlines counter. One person ended up arrested. The fight is part of a troubling trend airports across the nation are seeing, now that many people have resumed traveling. Recently, videos have surfaced showing face-mask confrontations, seat disagreements and personal space arguments. Clashes between passengers on planes have spilled over into airports.

    With the November election fewer than four months away and the number of coronavirus cases again surging in the United States, former vice president Joe Biden is preparing for a range of realities when it comes to dealing with the virus if he is elected president, according to an official. "I would say the vice president and the team are working through multiple scenarios. One of those scenarios would involve the existence of a vaccine, in which case, one of the biggest tasks would be the broad-based manufacture and equitable distribution of that vaccine which is an enormous logistical challenge,"...

    Actress and activist Mia Farrow reacted to President Trump’s move to criminalize animal cruelty on Tuesday by resurfacing a photo of his eldest sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, posing with a dead leopard as part of a hunt in Zimbabwe that took place nearly a decade ago. The president on Tuesday signed H.R. 724, otherwise known as the Protect Animal Cruelty and Torture Act (PACT). It criminalizes animal torture, specifically “crushing, burning, drowning, suffocating and impaling live animals, and other abuses such as sexually exploiting them,” according to the Humane Society.

    BUTLER COUNTY — Stevie Rose never met her uncle, Roger Lee Woods, but through the letters he mailed to his father, she understood what was going through his mind during the Korean War. Twice in his hand-written letters, Woods asked about his sister, JoAnn, and the baby she was carrying. That girl was Rose, who was born in April 1950, one month after one of the letters arrived. “That’s when I realized I was part of this story,” she said. Army Pfc. Woods, a native of Hamilton County, was last seen on July 29, 1950. The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency...

    In a wide-ranging speech that included swipes at fellow Republicans, including President Donald Trump, outgoing Rep. Mia Love on Monday called her successor in Congress a "wolf in sheep's clothing." Speaking from a teleprompter at the Utah GOP headquarters in downtown Salt Lake City surrounded by her family, Love confirmed she called Rep.-elect Ben McAdams, D-Utah, to congratulate him on winning the 4th Congressional District race.

    Democratic Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams claimed victory over Republican Rep. Mia Love Monday after new Salt Lake County results showed her trailing by 739 votes in the 4th Congressional District race. "I'm eager to get to work," McAdams said at a hastily called news conference held at his Millcreek campaign headquarters. "We are confident there is no way Rep. Love will retake the lead." He said he has not yet tried to contact the two-term congresswoman. "I do want to give her the space," McAdams said, anticipating her campaign wanted time to review the numbers released early Monday...

    A judge dismissed a lawsuit Friday filed by Rep. Mia Love against Salt Lake County Clerk Sherrie Swensen over how ballots in the tight 4th Congressional District race are being verified. But in new results released later Friday, Love took a 419 vote lead over Democratic Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams. Love has trailed McAdams in the 4th District race since election night Nov. 6. McAdams did gain 167 more votes than Love in Salt Lake County, but the two-term congresswoman added 1,588 more votes in Utah County, a conservative stronghold. She now has 129,006 votes to McAdams' 128,587...
