Summary

National Bestseller
		 
“Inside the Montreal Mafia is an entertaining, illuminating, and often sobering look at the downfall of the Rizzuto crime family … Highly readable and engaging.” — Montreal Review of Books
		 
A groundbreaking, exclusive inside look at the North American Mafia and the Rizzuto family
		 
For the first time in Canadian history, a high-ranking mafioso agreed to break the code of omertà by talking to journalists. From October 2014 to October 2019, Félix Séguin and Eric Thibault held multiple secret meetings with Andrew Scoppa, getting an exclusive inside look at the inner workings of the North American Mafia. This book is the culmination of their perilous investigation. It sheds light on the life — and death — of one of the most influential organized crime figures in recent years.
		 
At exactly 2 p.m., there was a knock at the door. It was him: the source every journalist dreamed of having. The short man was armed and placed his gun on a table.
		 
“Are you impressed?” he asked with a broad grin.
		 
“Yes. Very much.”
		 
Before me was Andrew Scoppa, close confidant of the late mafia boss Vito Rizzuto, international heroin trafficker and cold-blooded killer.

    The Communist Manifesto was conceived as an outline of the basic beliefs of the Communist movement. The authors believed that the European Powers were universally afraid of the nascent movement, and were condemning as "communist," people or activities that did not actually conform to what the Communists believed. This Manifesto, then, became a manual for their beliefs.In it we find Marx and Engel's rehearsal of the idea that Capital has stolen away the work of the artisan and peasant by building up factories to produce goods cheaply. The efficiency of Capital depends, then, on the wage laborers who staff the factories and how little they will accept in order to have work. This concentrates power and money in a Bourgeois class that profits from the disunity of workers (Proletarians), who only receive a subsistence wage.If workers unite in a class struggle against the bourgeois, using riot and strikes as weapons, they will eventually overthrow the bourgeois and replace them as a ruling class. Communists further believe in and lay out a system of reforms to transform into a classless, stateless society, thus distinguishing themselves from various flavors of Socialism, which would be content to have workers remain the ruling class after the revolution.The Manifesto caused a huge amount of discussion for its support for a forcible overthrow of the existing politics and society.

    Why is Trump the Right Leader for These Times? 
    Like many, we are working hard to get President Trump re-elected. We are convinced by mounting evidence that it has become a matter of life and death and not just a simpler matter of freedom versus slavery.  
    The shenanigans of the mainstream media often have been riddled with exaggerations and misrepresentations. An evil agenda is unfolding a little each day; otherwise, why is censorship so widespread against any scientist who does not believe in the media lies about the Jab?  
    President Trump is fighting a street brawl. It is kill or be killed. Sadly, the agenda of the extreme left is peppered with lies to deceive most and bullying to coerce the rest. The real war is not about the economy or the fake response to COVID-19. It is about survival of America conceived in liberty. The fight is about controlling the worldwide monetary policy.  
    The war President Trump is fighting is invisible to the masses and hidden by a controlled media. This claim is hard to believe until you listen to the verifiable evidence in Chapter 2. 
    Donald Trump's re-election is only the first step in preventing the catastrophic sequence of events that currently appear to have been planned and are being executed.  
    The objective of this book, Why Trump Is The Right Leader, is to educate the voting public on the much misunderstood, and often misrepresented, Trump Presidency.  
    With the support of over 200 publicly verifiable references and citations of sources, the author explains how and why the extreme Left manipulates us like puppets.  
    In the book you will find evidence that the Pandemic was planned as early as 2012 and the depopulation goes back to the 1960’s and approved in Brazil in the 1990’s. You will also find evidence of the devastation that is expected to plague the West, its allies in Europe, Israel, and Saudi Arabia.

    We are witnessing a worldwide resurgence of reactionary ideologies and movements, combined with an escalating assault on democratic institutions and structures. Nevertheless, most studies of these phenomena remain anchored in a methodological nationalism, while comparative research is almost entirely limited to the Global North. Yet, authoritarian transformations in the South — and the struggles against them — have not only been just as dramatic as those in the North but also preceded them, and consequently have been studied by Southern scholars for many years. 
    
    This volume brings together the work of more than 15 scholar-activists from across the Global South, combining in-depth studies of regional processes of authoritarian transformation with a global perspective on authoritarian capitalism. 
    
    With a foreword by Verónica Gago.
