Who Is Teamster James Hoffa?

Meet another corrupt, violent union thug for Obama
Don’t miss FrontPage’s other Union Gangsters profiles featuring Craig Becker, Richard Trumka, Stephen Lerner, Andy Stern and Daniel De Leon.

Few union gangsters have the exquisitely barbaric pedigree of International Brotherhood of Teamsters president James P. Hoffa.
And few labor unions can match the Teamsters, the million-plus member union of truckers and blue-collar workers, for its legendary connections to organized crime, corruption, and violence. For decades the word Teamster was essentially a synonym for gangster.

Hoffa is the son of James R. Hoffa, the relentlessly corrupt, larger-than-life Teamsters president who worked closely with figures from the crime underworld. In July 1975 the elder Hoffa disappeared mysteriously outside a suburban Detroit restaurant at which he was planning to meet with two mobsters. His body has never been found.

A similar ruling was issued in 2008, but the case was sent back to the court based on a ruling change from the Supreme Court.

Jackson’s famed “wardrobe malfunction” occurred at the end of the halftime performance when Justin Timberlake seemingly ripped off her bustier. The flash shocked and awed an audience of 90 million for a fraction of a second.

The Parent’s Television Council today said the court ruling “reaches the level of judicial stupidity and is a sucker-punch to families everywhere.”
