Joe Fosco Show: Lord Black Shares View On Donald Trump

Today’s show was recorded at Lord Black’s Bridle Path estate in Toronto. We met in his library, the grandeur of which attests to Lord Black’s love of the written word. It is truly a sight to behold. His Lordship was a gracious host. We discussed several topics, including the 2016 U.S. Presidential race. His views […]

Gangster Patrick Lenny

Today’s Roundtable discussion was rather revealing as retired Chicago Police Sergeant Don Herion and retired gaming expert Mr. Harvey reminisced about past experiences with Chicago Outfit issues. I apologize for a couple of instances where electronic mobile devices interrupted us. ANP will endeavor to keep such distractions from occurring in the future. Join ANP again next […]

Tim Allen

BIRMINGHAM – When most people think of Tim Allen, they think Home Improvement’s Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor, not convicted dope peddler and ex-convict. A Birmingham Seaholm grad, Allen wasn’t always the affable, well-liked comedian and television and film star we know today. Thirty five years ago this month Allen was arrested with over a […]

Armando and Joseph Fosco

When I was a young boy, I remember my father making breakfast for my family on Saturday and Sunday mornings. My little brother and I would sit at the kitchen table waiting like two young princes, immersed in the comic section of the Chicago Sun-Times, while the magic happened. Prior to making breakfast, my father […]

A commemorative brick from Chicago Stadium

As the Blackhawks duke it out with the Bruins for the Stanley Cup, I cannot help but dwell on all the good times I had in The Chicago Stadium. Like so many other Blackhawks fans, I was sad and angry when the old Chicago Stadium was scheduled for demolition in early 1994. Many of us […]

There Is No Alternative: Thatcher Destroyed Great Britain

A mighty tyrant passed from this world recently. No, I am not writing about Hugo Chavez, though the person I have in mind has much in common with that bombastic and verbose dictator of resource-rich Venezuela. Both he and my subject have a meticulously-built cult of personality surrounding them, dappled generously with strong hints of […]

Rahm “Walker’s” On

The 2011 Wisconsin protests should still be vivid in your memory – they certainly are in mine. In February of that year, tens of thousands of protesters filled downtown Madison, hell-bent on derailing Governor Scott Walker’s attempt to pass the Wisconsin Budget Repair Bill, which made public sector workers pay a bit more – though […]

Posted on 19. Aug, 2012 by in History, Politics


It is sad to see men who so nobly served their country become shills for the RNC meatgrinder. A group of Special Forces veterans are being used by Republican strategists to sully the Obama-led Osama bin Laden raid. Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund, founded by a former Navy SEAL and failed politician named Scott Taylor, […]

I have authored some difficult articles in my nearly five-years of writing for American News Post, however, this one takes the cake. Those of you who are steady readers of American News Post would be familiar with Theodore Roe, one of my literary contributors here at ANP. Those who are extremely knowledgeable on the history […]
