Weinstein accuser and Anthony Bourdain's ex Asia Argento is accused of sexually assaulting 17-year-old actor and paying him off with $380k - after first meeting when he played her son aged 7

  • Argento was one of the first actresses to accuse disgraced Miramax producer Weinstein of sexual assault in October last year
  • In November, she received a notice to sue from ex child actor Jimmy Bennett
  • It accused her of sexually assaulting him in a California hotel in 2013, when he was 17 and she was 37. Californian age of consent is 18
  • The document claims that Argento lured the teen to her room and sent away his chaperone before playing him with alcohol and giving him her love letters
  • The Italian actress, who is 20 years his senior, then kissed the teen and pushed him onto the bed where she performed oral sex on him, the notice claims
  • She then allegedly climbed on top of him and the pair had sex
  • The original notice asked for $3.5 million in damages for the intentional infliction of emotional distress, lost wages, assault and battery
  • Argento, who was dating celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain until his suicide in June, settled the claim out of court earlier this year for $380,000

MOB TALK RADIO-8/19/18 Q&A, FRANK SINATRA, NEWS, NOTES
MOB TALK RADIO


Published on Aug 19, 2018
In this episode Jeff answers your questions regarding organized crime, and follows it up with the Frank Sinatra story in relative terms to organized crime; discussing Sam Giancana, Skinny D'Amato, Jimmy Hoffa, Dean Martin, Cal Neva Lodge, JFK, The Fischetti Brothers and more.

Frank Sinatra was a legend for many reasons, but the notoriety Sinatra received was because of his affiliations and ties to several big organized crime figures including: Carlo Gambino, Sam Giancana, Lucky Luciano, Meyer Lanksy, Bugsy Seigel and more.

Sinatra played a large part in getting John F. Kennedy elected to the office of the President of the United States, and it was through Sinatra that Joe Kennedy was able to arrange the Mafia connection.

Sinatra was at the infamous Havana Conference and even covered Ray Patriarca's shares in the Sands Casino. There is a steep history to Frank Sinatra and the mafia. Many myths, but in this episode the truth comes out about his friendships, why they were in place, and what Frank got as a result of those friendships. It wasn't always sunshine and roses...

Many journalists and mob experts have reported misinformation over the years about Sinatra and his ties. This show, explores those rumors and puts a solid end to them. Nothing but the truth as always.

Life of a Former Detroit KINGPIN - Part 3 - Fresh Out: Life After The Penitentiary
Fresh Out- Life After The Penitentiary



Published on Aug 20, 2018
Part 3 of our mini-series, Gives the viewer insight into what is keeping Peanut out of trouble and on the right path.

Affectionately known as Peanut, or Mr. BMB, Brian Maurice Brown was bred on the same vicious Detroit streets that took the lives of his parents within 28 days of the other. He faced insurmountable odds yet always managed to thrive. Life took a drastic turn when the leader of a $68 million dollar narcotics empire was wrongfully suspected of murder and forced him to go on the run. His survival skills kicked in and served him well during a 5-year stint as a fugitive profiled on America’s Most Wanted.

After serving nearly 10 years in the Federal Correctional system, and discovering his life's purpose, he came out better than ever and has become a respected entertainment mogul on the rise. He is the CEO of BMB Entertainment and prominent indie recording label BMB Records. Even with this success, Brown's proudest accomplishment is being a loving father to his children, loyal husband to multiple wives, and the protector, provider, and stabilizer of many. His mere existence despite the traumatic and astonishing life he’s lived is unfathomable. Brown’s philosophies on love, life, and self-assessment; lay the groundwork for a new approach to personal, spiritual and professional fulfillment.

His principles of living outside of himself as a form of survival and sustenance are the subject of Living for the Sacrifice: A Hood Hero’s Guide to Success. The page turning book, which inspired a 2018 film festival contending documentary of the same title, is available on Amazon.com.

Without a doubt, Mr. BMB has become one of Detroit's most notorious figures. In 2017, he was honored in a tribute song “Peanut on the Way” by Love and Hip Hop Hollywood star Ray J featuring popular rapper Boosie Badazz. Produced by heat maker, BMB producer Dre Butterz, the upbeat track pays homage to the unlikely hero.

Ray J’s catchy hook “I’m in trouble…I know Peanut’s on the way” is an ode to Brown’s mantra of living outside of himself for every soul or situation.

Since its inception in 2013, Brown has driven the growth of BMB, which is an acronym for “Breaking Major Barriers”, exponentially. The entertainment brand specializes in urban music projects by established and emerging recording artists. BMB Records has released hip-hop legends such as Trick, Charli Baltimore and more contemporary talent including rap sensation Kash Doll, Fox TV Empire star Bre Z and teen stars Que 9 and Brooklyn Queen. With the charismatic leader at the helm, and in accordance with his outline; BMB Entertainment has made a notable impact on the local music scene and is poised to make its mark in the industry as a whole.

LIVING FOR THE SACRIFICE: A HOOD HERO'S GUIDE TO SUCCESS

Living for the Sacrifice: A Hood Hero’s Guide to Success is the fascinating book that offers the ‘outline of engagement’ of one of the most intuitive and interesting men of our time, Brian Maurice Brown. A former drug kingpin turned Grammy-nominated music executive, Brown [and moreover his purpose]; is the complex subject of the American Gangster meets The Secret-style masterpiece.

“Living for the Sacrifice is a riveting self-help book that reads like a gritty urban novel, but the main character is far from fiction. Brian Brown is real, raw and ready to share his secret to success and happiness with the world.” Explains Brown's Co-Author, Treavion Davenport.

What Are The The Top 5 Deadliest Hurricanes On Record?
August 31, 2018 by Reuters

Hurricane Image By Sasa Kadrijevic, Shutterstock

by Ava Meyer (Reuters) – Puerto Rico has raised the official death toll from Hurricane Maria to nearly 3,000 following a study ordered by the governor of the U.S. territory.

The report found an estimated 2,975 deaths could be attributed directly or indirectly to Maria, the most powerful storm to hit the Caribbean island in almost a century, from the time it struck in September 2017 to mid-February this year.

Following is a list of the world’s five most deadly hurricanes. Hurricanes form over the Atlantic and North Pacific oceans and cause most damage to the Americas while typhoons form in the Northwest Pacific Ocean, impacting Asia.

The number of fatalities varies between sources.

The Great Hurricane, Caribbean, 1780 – Death toll 20,000

The deadliest hurricane on record cost the lives of about 20,000 people, with most of the damage and fatalities occurring in Barbados and surrounding islands. Predating modern meteorological technology, the formation point and exact wind strengths of the hurricane are unknown.

Hurricane Mitch reportedly killed about 19,000 people.

Classified as a Category 5 – the highest ranking on the Saffir-Simpson scale – the greatest number of fatalities was in Honduras where severe rainfall led to mud slides and flooding.

Galveston Hurricane, Texas, 1900 – Death toll between 6,000-12,000

The Galveston Hurricane caused the greatest number of deaths on the U.S. mainland. Ranked as a Category 4, the disaster ruined the town’s commercial industry and its status as a major port whilst claiming the lives of up to 12,000 inhabitants.

Hurricane Fifi, Honduras, 1974 – Death toll 8,000-10,000

Hurricane Fifi is the lowest measured hurricane included on this list but it proved to be deadly and destructive for the island of Honduras. The name Fifi was removed from the rotating list of hurricane names due to high number of fatalities.

  1. Dominican Republic Hurricane, Caribbean, 1930 – Death toll 2,000-8,000

Characterized by strong winds and heavy rainfall, the hurricane of 1930 caused severe damage to the Dominican Republic. The island struggled to provide effective and quick relief to its citizens and for its infrastructure.

Black men are being made out as weak children, incapable of defending themselves and others by the mainstream media, especially in the Trump era. “Microaggressions” from political figures and celebrities towards black men are being highlighted as news stories. Normal men do not behave like babies who cannot protect themselves which is what these stories paint us as. It’s time that this trend has come to an end.

It starts with black men who work for the mainstream media such as Jonathan Capehart, Don Lemon, and Van Jones. Reclaim your masculinity and stop being led by the nose of your employer who seek to display men as feckless weaklings.

BAKU - Some believe that poverty and conflict in sub-Saharan Africa is the result of the centuries of exploitation by foreign powers. Others blame it on poor African leadership and argue that the outside world has provided substantial aid in recent decades. The Looting Machine: Warlords, Tycoons, Smugglers and the Systematic Theft of Africa’s Wealth by Tom Burgis dismisses these beliefs and reveals a web of corporate structures that holds both African leaders as well as powerful international institutions complicit in the modern plunder of Africa.

Army vet executed after trying to help a stranded driver who turned out to be a HITMAN
Good Samaritan Army vet is executed on Veteran's Day while trying to help a stranded driver 'who turned out to be a HITMAN hired to kill him to stop him testifying in court case'

  • Carlos Cruz-Echevarria, 60, was killed in 'planned execution' on Veteran's Day
  • Kelsey Terrance McFoley, 28, allegedly paid suspected hitman Benjamin Jaquaric Antonio Bascom, 24, to kill Cruz-Echevarria last year
  • McFoley allegedly wanted him dead to stop him testifying in a road rage case
  • In May 2017, McFoley allegedly pulled a gun on Cruz-Echevarria after he honked at him while driving when the suspect was stopped at green light
  • Cruz-Echevarria called the police and McFoley, who has many past convictions, was facing a lengthy sentence if convicted
  • Police say he hired Bascom after Cruz-Echevarria's address was revealed in court documents ahead of his testimony
  • On November 11, Bascom went to Cruz-Echevarria's home but the victim wasn't there so 'stalked' the neighborhood
  • The alleged hitman accidentally drove into a ditch but found a good Samaritan came to his aid
  • That good Samaritan turned out to be his target, and as Cruz-Echevarria went to help him, he shot him multiple times in the head, police say
  • Bascom, McFoley and his girlfriend, Melissa Rios Roque, 21, who allegedly conspired with them to commit murder, were all arrested on murder charges
