  1. These white women raping thugs and child trafficking gangsters need to be burned alive for their executions.

    The African American Mafia is an influential organized crime group in the United States operating as a proxy for La Cosa Nostra. The Corsican-Sicilian mafia which is operating in Baltimore and is overseen by corrupt CIA and FBI agents sell the opium to the Lucchese crime family in New York City and they provide a portion of it to D-Block which is a rap group and organized crime group operating out of Yonkers with Sheek Louch (Lucchese), Jadakiss, and Styles P as rappers and bosses and them and their associates then run it to the block gangs in various cities on the East Coast. The Lucchese crime family operate in Yonkers with their Tanglewood Boys. D-Block are selling heroin to various block gang sets in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Massachusetts and these block gangs then fight each other for dominance in the cities. Back in 2005-2006 they turned nearly every street in my nearby city into individual gangs with the most dominant block gang calling itself D-Block. Once the crime increased the local police brought in the federal agents which federalized the local police. D-Block then launders their money at their D-Block Car Wash and Gas located in Yonkers as well as launder drug and criminal profits through their D-Block Records. Businesses like car washes, bars, and strip clubs deal in mostly cash and this is useful in laundering dirty money.

    I believe Joseph Lubrano runs the Lucchese Yonkers division today. The Tanglewood Boys of Yonkers deny he is a member however they said that to protect him. D-Block are probably the highest level black mafia in the United States and are the most powerful mafia organization in the rap industry. As the heads of the Black Mafia in the United States Sheek Louch represents the Lucchese crime family, Styles P represents the Gambino crime family, and Jadakiss represents the Genovese crime family and they are the reformed Council formerly headed up by Nicky Barnes. The Diplomats are a Harlem rap group and them and their Purple City Productions associates are like a continuation of the East Harlem Purple Gang which was allied with the Council. Dipset includes the rappers Cam'ron, Jim Jones, and Juelz Santana. Frank Lucas was a hidden front man for the Council. The Cuban rapper Fat Joe who is from the South Bronx along with his group Terror Squad work with the Cuban Marielitos gangs which also operate out of the South Bronx. Members of Terror Squad include the rappers Cuban Link, Triple Seis, Prospect, and Armageddon. Capone-N-Noreaga are a rap group taking their names from mafia boss Al Capone and the dictator Manuel Noriega. Noreaga or NORE did about 3 years when he was 14 for an attempted murder. The movie American Gangster was about Frank Lucas and Jay Z made a music album associated with the movie. Jay Z is like the modern Councils "Frank Lucas." D-Block are also working with P Diddy who they were originally signed to under Bad Boy Records.

    P Diddy is a front man for the Genovese 116th Uptown Crew headed up by Liborio Bellomo. P Diddy was signed to Andre Harrell's Uptown Records and today Diddy is worth over 800 million. P Diddy and the rapper Shyne who was signed to Diddy's Bad Boy Records were arrested for gun possession and attempted murder. P Diddy got off on all charges and Shyne did 10 years in prison and took the fall as P Diddy's patsy. The Lucchese crime family supplied opium and heroin to the Council and they still do to this day. Jadakiss, Sheek Louch, and Styles P are known in the Council as the Three Wise Guys. They are probably the most legitimate mafia organization comparable to the Italian mafia. Members of Wu-Tang and Dipset are likely members of the modern day Council including Jim Jones, Hell Rell, Raekwon, and Ghostface Killah. The rapper AZ is likely a member of the Council. Their influence and credibility with street gangs has put them high up within organized crime. D-Block are connected with Ruff Ryders and Cassidy a Philly rapper as a former member. Cassidy and his Larsiny Family rap group oversee some street gang's criminal activities in North Philly as a proxy for the Greek Philly Mob which operate in North Philly and they also work with Albanian Mafia associates. Cassidy was tried for murder and got off on time served during his trial. Murder Inc. is a rap record label run by Irv Gotti and Chris Gotti taking their names from the Gotti family and the name Murder Inc. from the Jewish Mafia. Artists involved with Murder Inc. include Ja Rule, Black Child, and Bobby Brown. Irv Gotti was charged and investigated for money laundering.

    Meek Mill is a South Philly rapper with a long criminal history formerly overseeing some street gangs in his territory as a proxy for the Philly Mob. Meek Mill is currently doing 2-4 years for violating parole. Beanie Sigel is a South Philly rapper signed to Jay Z's Roc-a-Fella records and is also overseeing street gangs in the Philly region. Beanie Sigel takes his name to honor the Jewish gangster Bugsy Siegel. The rapper Freeway is an associate of Jay Z and Beanie Sigel. Freeway works with the Philadelphia Black Mafia. Jay Z is the top boss of the AVLN founded in Chicago which has moved into New Jersey. The Rockefeller Foundation financed the AVLN and this is why Jay Z calls his record company Roc-a-fella. Jay Z is working with the Chicago Outfit and Colombo crime family which are both owned by the Colonna family of Rome. Wu Tang are another rap group overseeing street gangs and are working with various organized crime groups. RZA or Robert Fitzgerald Diggs who lives in New Jersey is a boss of the AVLN and also works with Asian gangs, the Irish Mafia, and Five Families. RZA is the most evil rapper that I have come across and he is also a 33rd degree Freemason. Andrew Gigante and John Bokun advise RZA. G-Unit and Mobb Deep operate out of Queens and work with the Five Families and oversee both the Bloods and Crips in New York City. They are involved with cocaine and prostitution. 50 Cent oversees both the Bloods and Crips and he is extremely dangerous. The rapper Papoose and his rap group Thug-A-Cation run a powerful street gang in Brooklyn involved with trafficking weapons and drugs.

    Lil Wayne is from New Orleans and signed with Cash Money Records along with Birdman its co-founder. Birdman was charged with possession of a pound of marijuana in 2007. Lil Wayne was charged with criminal possession of a weapon and marijuana and did one year in Rikers Island and later was arrested for possession of narcotics for sale. Cash Money Records is a New Orleans crime family proxy overseeing criminal gangs in the New Orleans region. The New Orleans crime family is headed up by Joe Gagliano along with Marcello family associates. They run and infiltrate some Louisiana casinos and are involved with criminal trafficking with the Gulf Cartel. The Spanish Bourbons own the Gulf Cartel and their French cousins the House of Orleans own the New Orleans crime family. B.G. is another rapper signed to Cash Money and received 14 years for illegal gun possession and witness tampering. Cash Money is also located in Miami, Florida where the Trafficante crime family operate and they work with the Gulf Cartel and Cuban Mafia and have associates of the Five Families managing criminal operations. DJ Khaled is a Miami based music producer connected with Jay Z's Roc Nation, Terror Squad, and Cash Money. The mafia in Florida are involved with trafficking large amounts of cocaine. Rick Ross is a high level mafia associate and gangster rapper from Florida who has been charged with possession, kidnapping and assault. The rapper Rick Ross takes his name from the drug trafficker "Freeway" Rick Ross.

    The Trafficante crime family oversee the Georgia region as well with Vincent LoScalzo as a top adviser. T.I. is an Atlanta rapper signed to Jay Z's label. He was convicted of federal weapons charges and recently opened a strip club. The mafia run most of the strip clubs in the United States and use them for money laundering, prostitution, and drug dealing. Detroit's Black Mafia operate in Georgia. Gangster rappers and their record companies are criminal fronts. They promote crime and then use their associates to provide drugs, weapons, and organized crime skills to the street gangs. La Cosa Nostra is using the Black Mafia as a line of defense similar to the way the Sicilian Mafia use Camorra and N'Drangheta as their defense in Italy. The Black Mafia Family are an African American Detroit organized crime syndicate involved with the rap industry and have been associated with the rappers Jay Z, T.I., Young Jeezy, and Fabolous who worked with the Black Mafia Entertainment's Bleu DaVinci. The Black Mafia Family are a proxy for the Detroit Partnership. Dr. Dre runs the Crips in Los Angeles and is worth over 800 million. The rapper the Game is an admitted Blood and runs the Bloods in Los Angeles. Dr. Dre and the Game are both closely connected with G-Unit which are involved with the Bloods and Crips on the East Coast. Snoop Dogg is a high level Crip. La Cosa Nostra oversees and profits from all these criminal fronts and uses these rappers to manage gangs which operate as their defense.

  2. Republicans have lost all credibility around being stewards of the economy. During the Obama years they always lectured the world about Free Market economics and how the government should not pick winners and losers. All these tariffs and picking winners and losers, these National Socialist policies that have no base in market economics.

    Conservatives need to take back their party.

  3. Up the rates and amazon will just do it themselves and USPS will collapse. Amazon are already building their own delivery network.

  4. Let's see Amazon is set to pay no state taxes here in Chicago nor city taxes and con sessionsb on payroll taxes. Why is the state of Illinois which is already bankrupt subsidizing The Richest Man in the world and his company. company, HEY DICK DURBAN lifetime democrat of Illinois stop taking bribes and pay offs from big business and lower taxes for the Illinois people.

  5. The mom and pop stores that closed up in my town did so when Walmart came, long before anyone in my area ever even heard of Amazon.

  6. That's why the cost is higher to the public. They plan on knocking out USPS in October when contract expires. They needed someone gullible to deliver until they were set to take over.

  7. USPS has great assets and can leverage them by partnering with fed ex and ups which would help them at least break even.

  8. Illinois people don't need to pay Amazon s fair share of taxes. No wonder Illinois is bankrupt. Dick Durban and others take brides and we the citizens keep paying for their corruption

  9. cool make them pay, amazon collects a extra fee for their amazon prime shipping. they need to pay that money to the US post office. and dont ever select the 2 day shipping option because your only paying amazon more money for the same shipping.

  10. This is so stupid. USPS's fixed costs are not Amazon's problem, but they are incrementally profitable for USPS. It's like airlines selling seats below their per seat cost to fill planes, because the alternative is not having someone else buy those at a higher price, but having zero revenue for those seats. Without Amazon, USPS, still has to send people out to deliver mail. If USPS doesn't strike a deal with Amazon on good terms, Amazon will just set up their own deliveries in cities where it's profitable, and offload the money losing shipments to USPS. The end result is going to be USPS cutting delivery days, especially in rural areas, and/or having to be bailed out with taxpayer money.

  11. Any large mailing business can get a bulk rate discount from the post office, trumps playing people for fools, look this info up for yourself.

  12. This makes absolutely no sense. I am a regular customer of Amazon. I order about 10 things a month, and have for about 3 years. All my items come UPS or Fedex. I have NEVER gotten anything from Amazon that was shipped through USPS, in all the times I have received items from them.

  13. The USPS has been around for decades, far longer than FedEx and UPS.
    We the people should honor the USPS and give them more of the business by shipping packages through them than FedEx and UPS.

  14. So does it mean shipping and handling is going to be higher ,if so let me hurry up and get my free shipping orders from Amazon up to part before it'll be almost a $10-20 extra price tag for shipping…

  15. Good LORD mail is the equivalent to long distance! AT&T use to charge an arm and a leg to make a call and was next to impossible to leave and go to another long distance carrier! They'd FRIKKIN beg you to come back offering deal after deal and sometimes even PAID you to come back and GIVE you the long distance for FREE!!!
    HELLL in 3 months they gave me $275 bucks and I'm talking for real, here's a check😬 deposit it,plus 6 months free EVERYTHING!!!! Its seems like that with the post office! The closer they get to closing their doors, the better the service because mailing a package TODAY isn't near the nightmare it once was!
    At Christmas time they actually had hot chocolate,cookies and finger sandwiches and the day BEFORE they had WINE cheese and crackers!!! Its CrAzY to see the difference because 20yrs ago mailing a package was a 2+hour wait and everyone was gettin a lump of coal because NO ONE was FRIENDLY/KIND/HELPFUL lol nope the only thing worse was the DMV(actually more like😈 separated at birth evil TWINS)SOOO God only knows the HELLL Christmas will be 2yrs from NOW or where Amazon will be for that matter as well!

  16. All I am personally seeing is lousy service. Insure something? Good luck after the parcel is lost being refunded. No more. Fed Ex for me.

  17. This is just a petty personal vendetta against Bezos / Washington Post from Spanky Bonespurs. Nothing to do with actual governing.

  18. The postal service actually makes a profit on Amazon. Fact check it. Now Amazon is motivated to expand their own delivery service — so USPS will lose one of their largest profitable customers. Trump just hates Bezos because he owns WaPo.

  19. I think thats bullcrap because packages have definitely without a doubt increased to far outweigh letters. Their prices are outrageous to ship anything so I got to UPS Theyd have my business but i cant afford them.

  20. i am pretty old, and in my younger days a person was expected to mail invitations, rsvp's, thank you notes, and more. i have always had a terrible memory, and even when i got older and was secretary to the owner of the firm where i worked and kept his up with his calender, i was terrible about looking at my own calender when i got home. that being said, i was quite often embarrassed because of this terrible habit and was VERY happy when the time came that i coud simpy send an email to the person instead, and, later, when the time finally arrived when i coud simply text the info to a person's phone, i was absoutely thrilled lol. i have finally gotten to the age where i should downsize and get rid of things which i know others in my family have no interest in. quite a few people have told me i would be able to make quite a lot of money by selling online (and, knowing what some of my antiques are worth quite a bit, i agree); however, the thing that prevents this is simply my knowledge that, once i sold something, i probably would not mail it as i should.

  21. What is really going on? I don't like Bezos myself but I'm sticking with Amazon because I can't afford sending a package with USPS for $40.

  22. Amazon is a cash flow for USPS, FedEx and UPS.  It allows these companies to have a steady flow of income to at least operate their deliveries at a break even point when standard deliveries are low.  In other words they would be losing money to send one standard package across town but when you add in on a regular basis 2, 3, 4 or more Amazon packages all going to the same place it makes sense to give Amazon a lower rate considering that they probably account for as much as 33% of the total packages delivered in a standard day, probably more in most instances.  I know when I look into my UPS mans truck it seems that the vast majority of boxes are from Amazon.  I depend on Amazon, Walmart and Sams Club deliveries to survive because I live so far from town it is not a simple thing to just run down to the store to pick up a few items. It costs me about $20 in gas plus a minimum of 4 hours out of my day to go to town.  There's not enough room in a grocery cart to get all the items I need in a single trip but having these companies deliver most of my non perishable items allows me to make less trips to town.  President Trump needs to leave Amazon alone and concentrate on more important issues.

  23. No sympathy for USPS. They always lose my packages or leave them unattended at my apartment instead of sending it to my apartment manager.

  24. The USPS is not in trouble. They're not supposed to make a profit. They're the only federal program that doesn't get money from the government. They make their money from postage. All profit goes to the employees. Their pension fund is doing so well its there for people who aren't even born yet. With 40% of the workforce set to retire within the next 2 years there is plenty of opportunity for the CCA's and RCA's to become regular very soon. We're very happy with their retirement and benefit programs that are offered. We will have nothing to worry about when retirement comes at 57 yrs old. Perfect time to join. Get in while you can.

  25. It's an exaggeration that USPS loses money from Amazon. Amazon negotiates with USPS. USPS already delivers to residents. People shop Amazon because of variety and ease. I've spent wasted time driving to stores to find something they didn't have. Other carriers deliver Amazon goods but they don't lose money? They have to go to the destination while USPS goes there anyway. Anything that TRUMP spews is wrong because he's premier fucking idiot.

  26. The annual debt is spiking upward under Trump as he has a big giveaway to rich people with tax restructuring. Maybe if USPS turns a profit Trump can pilfer it and give that to oil companies. The republican trickle down is Trump in a hotel room with the prostitute of the day. Usps getting so-called sweet deal is just a distraction from thieving plutocrats now in office. Yet another tenure leaving shambles where democrats might be able to correct but more likely are there to be scapegoats for fuckhead republicans.

  27. The postal service is a "mail" delivery business. They need to stop trying to reinvent it as something else. They shouldn't be delivering your pizza. They shouldn't be delivering your couches. They should only be handling things that fit in a mailbox. That's what their entire structure has been made for. If you want four 70lbs boxes of dog food delivered to your house that needs to either be shipped by the actual seller or a business whose sole purpose is package delivery like UPS. The USPS and Fedex/UPS they are two different business's. That's why they have a symbiotic relationship with plane space vs trading off smaller packages for last mile delivery. They handle the big stuff while the post office handles the many smaller things.

    The postal service needs to back out of Amazon for everything bigger than a bread box.

  28. The reason the usps is losing money is because republicans under Reagan mandated that they pre fund retirements for every employee for 75 years. Not Amazon.

  29. Yesterday, on Sunday, a Unites States postal worker, in postal uniform, driving a united states postal vehicle, delivered to me at my home, a 29 cent wire I oredered from AMIZON.  I paid NO DELIVERY CHARGE.  So WHO PAID THE DOUBLE TIME to the united states postal worker??? Who paid for the vehicle???

  30. POSTAGE PAID IS SUPPOSED TO BE FOR DELIVERY OF MAIL OR PARCELS >When I pay POSTAGE for mail DELIVERY that fails to be DELIVERED… why do I not receive a refund? USPS says because I never insured the package or PAID for any extra service that would guarantee DELIVERY. I say "What is the initial POSTAGE THAT I PAID FOR? USPS says POSTAGE YOU PAID IS FOR DELIVERY OF MAIL OR PARCELS>>> Duh?? Why would I have to PAY for any other services if POSTAGE I already paid IS FOR DELIVERy? Duh??? THIS IS THE BIGGEST SCAM EVER PERPETRATED ON THE ENTIRE WORLD. Paid to perform a service that doesn't get performed is FRAUD.

  31. Apples snd oranges. Post service is exclusively mail delivery services vs. amz is global monopoly of almost everything. Fixing this problem with these factors is not even the correct logic and creates more havoc.

  32. The USPS has always run at a loss since a year when America was established. It was essential for United States growth from transporting information from one place to the other.

  33. allow Sunday delivery of mail for everyone or no one. Not just Amazon. Small business are tax payers too, probably even more than large corporations who Dodge their tax bills

  34. Sooo just so everyone knows, the Post Office before prefunding is operating at approx 800 MILLION in profits per year!!This is what the public is not told.Oh and againnnnn the usps is not funded by taxpayer money since the 70's?

  35. Amazon online tax bill tariff ,Amazon is the only company that can buy Usps them for privatization ,internet going to have to pay tax soon

  36. the USPS screwed up again because of management they are all dumb assholes I worked for these dumb scumbags and I know a janitor who married a postmaster daughter and they made him a postmaster wow he went from cleaning toilets to a postmaster just like that

  37. I order from Amazon,E-bay and a few other outfits , mostly because my local stores don't carry what i need ..when i started ordering i had no idea how the package wound up in the hands of my Local P.O. – i was glad at first as i can retrieve the package myself , especially as the P.O. is close – Once i caught the mailman Screaming in the street "Where's Joe"? "He buys a lot of stuff ,must be rich" – Just so happened panhandlers,drunks and whatnot were around him , i talked to guy about it and he apologized ..Today i get a package from the office and the other mailman at the desk is always screaming out my personal info , name address and what "he" thinks the package is..I asked him to stop that , he replied " STOP BUYING STUFF AND I'LL STOP" he says PROBLEM SOLVED

  38. Good. I dread having anything shipped via USPS. They can’t make delivery deadlines, packages are frequently damaged, and mail is often delivered to the wrong recipient. Amazon should stick with FedEx or UPS.

  39. USPS carriers are overwhelmed with Amazon packages !!
    It's ridiculous !
    USPS carriers should get paid for delivering Amazon ..

  40. Who are these people in white vans wearing yellow vests delivering Amazon packages they dump the packages at our mailbox I live in a Apartment 2nd floor these drivers never drop it near my door our mail box is on the 1st floor they run in and run back to there van so fast

  41. I worked at the grocery store  at Scott airforce base in Illinois years ago as a meatcutter. What i did find out was that you operate the store to break even, you don't do like in private co. bust your butt for a profit.

  42. What Trump said is totally wrong; USPS operates off of funds made from charges for services, not from tax dollars, and it is profitable.
