The Gangsters Are Back in Charge
The Gambino Crime Family was at a turning point in the mid-80’s. Paul Castellano was the boss of the family but many were unhappy about that. Deep down, most members of the family DID NOT respect him.
You see Castellano wasn’t a gangster. He just didn’t have it. He didn’t have what it took to be a true DON.
Castellano was a businessman, a greedy one at that. To top it off, he was also openly friendly with the police, a major violation of the gangster ethos.
This infuriated the captains, especially John Gotti.
Gotti and the other captains wouldn’t stand for it. They had to make things right. They had to put the gangsters back in charge.
On December 16, 1985 Castellano and his underboss were gunned down by a hit team right outside Sparks Steak House in Midtown Manhattan.
John Gotti and Sammy “the Bull” Gravano (Gotti’s future underboss) watched close by.
As they drove by to inspect the bodies, Gravano told Gotti: “He’s gone.”
Shortly after, John Gotti, with Sammy the Bull as his underboss, assumed the position of Boss of the Gambino Crime Family.
The gangsters were back in charge…
2017 is our year because this year the gangsters are back in charge.
Many of you are in a position in life where you feel powerless.
“I feel like the whole world is against me.”
“It shouldn’t be like this.”
“I’m not moving. I feel stuck.”
“I shouldn’t be here.”
You’re not where you should be but you’re exactly where you need to be.
John Gotti refused to accept the state of the Gambino Crime Family.
He took matters into his own hands. The crown was his for the taking and he took it.
Gotti and his co-conspirators made things right.
Think about it. What’s the point in being a gangster if the gangsters ain’t in charge?!!!
What the hell kind of world is that?
Sadly, that’s the world we live in now. There is an all-out war on men and the masses laugh it off as a joke.
It’s not a joke and this summer we make things right once and for all.
This world was built by men because men represent structure and order.
Without men, everything from a civilization’s infrastructure to its culture comes crashing down.
It’s time for the gangsters to be put back in charge once again.
