Summary

Have you ever wondered why Donald Trump keeps saying everything is rigged? Well, that's because he knows how to rig things; some of which were his casinos. Have you ever wondered if he was a Mafia capo? Just when you thought you knew everything about Donald Trump, the truth of how the Mafia, the Atlantic City casino industry, and Donald Trump stole billion$ "Without a Gun" off naive tourists and gamblers by rigging the games and controlling their employees with psychological head games boarding on strong-arm tactics. 
This riveting tell-all follows the book's author, from infancy to young adulthood, as he tries to figure out the reality around him. While attending college, eight miles west of Las Vegas east (Atlantic City, New Jersey), at the age of 19, our protagonist signs up to be a casino craps dealer to make extra spending money on the weekends, only to find out that the games are fixed like a Boardwalk carnival game and he is working for the Mafia. 
From 1984 to 1991, Lou Levite, Jr., is working for three separate casinos; the last three years for Donald Trump at his flagship casino and Atlantic City centerpiece, Trump Plaza. He describes in detail, working in the business, recalling the gamblers, the celebrities dealt to, how the games are rigged, and how the employees were expected to act. Lou runs into legal problems with his daughter's mother, Mary, an ex-Caesar's craps dealer who at the time is working for a lawyer who was the son of the well-known Atlantic City mafioso member Paul 'Skinny' D'Amato. She uses her connections to get rid of Lou, but he's not going willingly. Add to that the many years working in the casino industry, and he is taken to attempt suicide. After yelling at his family from behind a locked door one morning about how sick and tired he is of stepping on buttons and hitting switches to steal from people to make Donald Trump look like a hero when he is nothing but a mafia crook, his door is kicked in by two police officers who bring him to the nut ward to silence him. After two weeks, Lou is released from the hospital, where he turns to extortion against Mary to make his life brighter. It works, but only lasts a year and Mary goes back to trying to get rid of Lou. He later meets Frank, a man dating his mother boasts that he's been twice arrested for murder and that he used to run the Trump Castle casino, was a good friend of Ivana Trump's, and to have been Donald Trump's roommate at the Wharton School of Business. Frank offers to help him out of his predicament, but by then it is too late.  After feeling cornered and about to be killed by the Mafia, Lou leaves his family and friends behind, going underground in the hopes of surviving this contract he believes Donald Trump has a hand in. Is Donald Trump a Mafia Don? Maybe. But Lou is only alive today to tell this unbelievable story because he changed his name and spent many years in hiding. An interesting read as you watch this young man plan for and make his escape from Donald Trump and the Mafia in a world before computers, the Internet or cell phones.

    Russell led the British "revolt against idealism" in the early 20th century. He is considered one of the founders of analytic philosophy along with his predecessor Gottlob Frege, colleague G. E. Moore, and his protégé Ludwig Wittgenstein. He is widely held to be one of the 20th century's premier logicians. Russell was an anti-war activist; he went to prison for his pacifism during World War I. Later, he campaigned against Adolf Hitler, then criticised Stalinist totalitarianism, attacked the involvement of the United States in the Vietnam War. In 1950 Russell was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.

    The father of the ancient alien theory with more than 65 million books sold reveals everything he has withheld for years.In all his years of service, why didn't Erich von Däniken ever doubt his theory that inhabitants of other planets had come into contact with humanity ages ago, and that they still observe us today? How could von Däniken in all these years say firmly that the UFO phenomenon is real and that people are being abducted by aliens? Why does he repeatedly criticize the official historiography and our religions and thus accept scorn and hostility?The answers to these questions are: Because Erich von Däniken spoke to people who supported his theories. Because people who saw UFOs or were kidnapped by aliens trusted him. And because experts and insiders inaugurated secrets known to only a few people.In this book, the now 81-year-old presents selected eyewitnesses and insiders for the first time, reveals secrets and stories that he has hitherto kept private, and presents reports and revelations that leave one speechless!

  • Strange coincidences in your life - Small curious events Forebodings Telepathy Does it happen to you too? Quantum physics and the theory of synchronicity explain extrasensory phenomena - cover

    Strange coincidences in your...

    From the earliest developments of thought, mankind believed that some significant coincidences were signs by which a higher philosophical or divine level sought to inter-dialogue with men.
     
    In the last three centuries this had been erased from the new directions of science. Extraordinary coincidences were considered as fruits of chance. Anyone who wanted to interpret extraordinary events as divine signals was mocked. In the same way, premonitions were considered illusions or even signs of imbalance. This, despite many had experienced these extraordinary facts.
     
    Science denied the existence of a psychic dimension with which the human mind could interact. According to the common opinion, the only existing reality was matter. However, in the 1980s, experiments in quantum physics demonstrated the existence of a universe that is not just composed of matter. This universe holds a level in which energy and information do not suffer the limits of space and time typical of classical physics.
     
    This confirms all the intuitions matured in the history of humanity. Among these intuitions the concept of "Soul of the World" enunciated by the Greek philosopher Plato. More recently, the Swiss psychologist Carl Gustav Jung has elaborated the theory of the "collective unconscious".
     
    This book avoids investigating excessively specialized topics. The author clearly accompanies the reader in understanding the three levels that form a single reality.
     
    The first level is the physical one, which is part of our daily experience. The second level is the one described by quantum physics, typical of the smallest elementary particles of atoms.
     
    The third is the psychic level called "non-locality". It is the spiritual level, which can not be physically located anywhere.
     
    This path of knowledge refers to recent discoveries recognized by official science. The strange coincidences and phenomena of the mind become important parts of a new and surprising reality.

    How to be a conservative

    What does it mean to be a conservative in an age so sceptical of conservatism? How can we live in the presence of our 'canonized forefathers' at a time when their cultural, religious and political bequest is so routinely rejected? With soft left-liberalism as the dominant force in Western politics, what can conservatives now contribute to public debate that will not be dismissed as pure nostalgia? In this highly personal and witty book, renowned philosopher Roger Scruton explains how to live as a conservative in spite of the pressures to exist otherwise. Drawing on his own experience as a counter-cultural presence in public life, Scruton argues that while humanity might survive in the absence of the conservative outlook, it certainly won't flourish. How to be a conservative is not only a blueprint for modern conservatism. It is a heartfelt appeal on behalf of old fashioned decencies and values, which are the bedrock of our weakened, but still enduring civilization.
