A dialogue from bigmikecraft, Meyer Lansky's last enforcer. A new movie is being filmed in Saratoga in 2011 and a short for the Providence Film Festival this summer. I was inducted into the Lansky Group in 1968 because my father worked for the syndicate fixing trials thru-out New York State. My father was the Honorable William A. Craft, of Solomon, Kirwin, and Craft. They were not lawyers, they were Supreme Court Reporters, and were the bag men for both the Republican Party, and The Democratic Party. I became Meyer's Last Enforcer because My father did his job for the organization and I was an only child, therefore no threat. I was a millionaire by the age of 25. I was broke 4 times and kept starting over! I owned many nite-clubs in N.Y. which are all registered to me via the N.Y.S. Liquor Authority. I had the contracts to kill Pierre Trudeau of Canada, and Fidel Castro of Cuba, in 1974.

I shall explain them in blogs on this web site. I was forced to save Richard Nixons life after Meyer put out a hit on him in the fall of 1974. I have been in many newspapers and have had to fight the FBI for years until they finally kept me from being printed in the Enquirer o9n the Toronto Star's Article on my contract to hit "Pierre Trudeau, and Fidel Castro in 1974! The article was printed on January 3rd, 2008. The new movie, "Woodstock Melody, "The Real Crime Story" which stars Ben Gleib of the Chelsey Handler Show and is "Esquire Magazines "Comic of the Next 10 years"is a great Real Action Film! Ben plays the eldest son to the Upstate New York, Vermont, and New Hampshire Mob Boss! The iconic actor Fred "The Hammer" Williamson will play a gambler who works for the Boss with the great actress from "The Dallas Television Series" Audrey Landers playing the Bosses long term wife! Audrey is wonderful! The Emmy Award winner Ken Kercheval, "Cliff Barnes" on Dallas, will play the part of the last of the real old time mob bosses still active! Ken is perfect for the part. A new comer "Lena Chase from Smooth Magazine, will play the girlfriend of the big boss! It is a great cast and wait and see the final shoot, live right here on !


Clint Eastwood is lying in his new 'J.Edgar Hoover" Movie

Clint Eastwood is full of "horse dung" in his new movie about FBI director, J.Edgar Hoover" staring Leonardo DiCapprio! In my early position with the NCS in America, "The National Crime Syndicate", I worked closly with Meyer Lansky, boss of the old combination, as had my father, " The Honorable William A. Craft ESQ,  and future partner Paul A. DiCocco Sr! Like all young men on their way up in crime, I had to do my 5 years of low end work, in order to learn my trade!

I started in 1968, in the month of August, running money to Providence R.I. and New Jersey to Meyers friends.
I was a runner and did not pretend to be anything else. I was the crown prince only because my father was the most powerful New York Supreme Court employee in the State and was Nelson Rockefellers bag man and Meyer Lansky's fixer in both the N.Y. Supreme Court and the Northern District Federal court. My father could fix any bench trial in the State. I became Meyer's enforcer and one of the most feared inside national members in 1974!

That is another story.

The reason I am writing this today is because Mr. Bruno Chatelin has been so professional in the past and has given me some good advice.
I have MS and will be concentrating on this www.fest21 blog more now, along with both Gannett newspapers in Palm Springs and New Jersey, and (a news service)!
Bruno's advice has been invaluable!

Clint Eastwood is full of horse dung (to be polite to this blog) because his entire film is a lie!
J.Edgar Hoover was a paid dog for the national crime syndicate.

I personally paid him, on orders from Meyer, at the Pimlico Race Track, in 1969, 3 (three) times, when the boys could not get any one there on time. Johnny Roselli, a now dead made member of our mid-west faction, was the usual "Hoover" contact. Since my father was so cherished by every gangster in America who knew him, Meyer trusted me. I was an only child and not "Italian extraction" therefore Meyer and Tony Brown of Chicago trusted me as their personal bag man! I will not get into the details of our payoffs as of yet because I want  Mr. Chatlin to run a good story but I will tell you that I ha,ve been on the front pages of many newspapers in my time, and been in many federal trials. I became the "Acting Boss of The Lansky Group" after Meyers death but because I was too involved with the hijacking and drug business on the New York, New England Canadian Border, I could not keep us together as a national organization, even with the Bosses help from Chicago! I paid J.Edgar Hoover personally because Meyer owned him, period! That is why Meyer never went to Federal Prison in his life time! Hoover would not allow any agent to go near Meyer or Tony Brown (Brown is an aka)!

Clint Eastwood and Leonardo DiCapprio are full of "horse Dung"!
J.Edgar Hoover was bought very early, during the last days of "prohibition in America" He was bought because he could be bought, and that is that! If Clint Eastwood was an honest producer/director, he would have done his research! I, bigmikecraft paid off J.Edgar Hoover 3 times and that is that. The FBI has kept me out of the enquirer with the Trudeau hit contracts and the contract on Castro, due to their owning Assistant Editor Laurie Cambell.

I know that Bruno Chatlin, who is an honest editor will print my comments on Clint Eastwood and my furture comments on Mr. Eastwood! I hope this article can remain on the front page  for at least 7 days so as to get some of the movie reporters and news bloggers writing about this "Eastwood Hoover Movie"  Clint Eastwood is d producing a false movie and a movie based upon lies. J.Edgar Hoover was one of the most corrupt US Federal Agency Directors in the last 90 years, and we (NCS, National Crime Syndicate-old Combination), owned him outright! 

I would like to personally thank Bruno Chatelin for and his honest reporting of the world movie news. I don't like to have to have said this because I was a fan of Clint Eastwood, but he is producing lies and total falsehoods in his new movie "Hoover" staring Leonardo Di Capprio!


I paid Hoover personally three times and that is a fact. Hoover was corrupt and that is that! I thank Bruno Chatelin for this opportunity to make this "world movie news topixc"

I hope that puts this news article in the "web" and on google/bing!

Sincerely bigmikecraft
