Last Show Recap

Mafia Secrets

Pres. Reagan's secret agent, Lee Wanta, masterminded a creative way to financially take down the economy of the Soviet Union. He joined Richard Syrett, along with Lon Gibby (director of a documentary about Wanta), to discuss his claim that he amassed trillions of dollars that were designated to go back to the American people. In his effort to carry out his mandate, he was imprisoned, and the funds were stolen or converted illegally into the Federal Reserve.

In the first hour, security consultant and researcher Colin Hall detailed his investigation into two unusual car accidents in England and France that seemed to have paranormal elements.

Mafia Secrets

Show Archive
Date: Tuesday - February 16, 2010
Host: George Noory
Guests: George Harrell, Gerard Vairo Jr., A.J. Benza, Noe Torres, Ruben Uriarte

Author and former newsman George Harrell spoke about Mafia history, as well as his research into a secretive high level mob boss, known as Paulie Lefty or "The Judge." Also participating in the discussion were TV host and columnist A.J. Benza, and Jerry Vairo, the grand-nephew of Paulie Lefty. Paulie earned the nickname of The Judge, by allowing gamblers who were in over their heads to loan sharks to consolidate their debts (rather than just killing them as had been done previously), Vairo explained. Harrell eventually learned from the FBI that the late Paulie Lefty was known to be "the Consigliere for all five families."

The code of the Mafia has changed over the years, with the newer generation not always hanging on to old grudges, said Benza. Vairo suggested that the Mob still retains a lot of its power, but is more under the radar now, branching out into legit businesses.

Harrell outlined how Cuba at one time had become a focus of Mafia investments, with bosses like Meyer Lansky heavily funding a casino there, thinking it was going to be the next Las Vegas. But JFK never put together a covert team to remove Castro and reinstate the casinos, and this angered the Mob, and may have been a factor in the President's assassination. According to accounts told to Vario, Jimmy Hoffa was taken out by the Mafia, and disposed of by leaving him in a car that was demolished and scrapped for metal.

UFO Crashes

Last hour guests, UFO researchers Noe Torres & Ruben Uriarte shared updates.Torres' new book looks at UFO landmarks like Hangar 84 where alien bodies and UFO wreckage were said to be brought after the Roswell crash. The two also reviewed their investigations into a 1974 UFO crash along the Texas/Mexico border, and a 1955 incident involving a crash retrieval near the Rio Grande River.
