Public Enemy #1 Al Brady dies on the streets of Bangor, Maine

Crime stories weren’t exactly common in Maine. But back in the late 1930s, Public Enemy #1 Al Brady came to Maine to hide out. And he might never have been found had it not been for his longing for the true badge of an American gangster of the time, a Thompson submachine gun. 1,059 more words

I am sickened by what I have read here today. Not only Neil Keenan, but David Wilcock, Ben Fulford, and Michael Henry Dunn (who led me to believe he was a penniless, but talented person, only wanting to help Neil, and whose way I paid to Indonesia and to whom I also paid money to produce Neil’s first video), were all in on the bilking of me, Jean Haines. 3,680 more words
