March 24, 2017 Frank Parlato 0

By Tony Farina;

State Sen. Robert Ortt (R-62nd District) and his predecessor, George Maziarz, plan to vigorously fight the eight felony charges of filing a false instrument returned against them on Wednesday by an Albany County Grand Jury in a case presented by the Public Integrity Unit of Atty. General Eric Schneiderman’s office.

A third leading Republican figure from Niagara County, Henry Wojtaszek, a long-time time aide to former Sen. Maziarz, pleaded guilty to an election law misdemeanor count on Wednesday and is seen as a likely witness in the cases against Maziarz and Ortt.  This newspaper reported last week that indictments were expected this week in the probe by the attorney general’s office.

Home Ownership is AFFORDABLE

March 24, 2017 Frank Parlato 0

For years, Deal Realty Inc. has helped a lot of clients purchase their first home.  In fact, many clients were previously renters, some are re-peat buyers, and others investors.

First-time home buyers are often surprised when they see how affordable purchasing a home can be.  Many clients save thousands of dollars when they purchase rather than rent over a short 3-5 year period and are very excited to find out that they can afford to buy a new home utilizing the grants and bank programs that are available.

How Long Does It Take to Get Out of Shape?

March 2, 2017 Frank Parlato 0

By Randy Palladino

Colder temperatures and fewer daylight hours make it more difficult to stay active and motivated. But how long does it take to actually get out of shape? It varies from person to person, but most experts agree that it’s pretty simple: you either use it or you lose it.


After a few days

No change. A day off gives your body time to recover and grow stronger, so don’t worry about missing a day here or there. In addition to preventing overtraining, which can lead to injuries, rest days can also bring a much-needed mental break.

Down Memory Lane with Raniere, Bronfmans, Lama Tenzin and Dalai Lama

March 1, 2017 Frank Parlato 0
The Dalai Lama speaks in Albany. Clare and Sara Bronfman are seated onstage with him.

As readers know, NXIVM conducts “human potential and ethics” seminars in Albany and elsewhere. Keith Raniere is the company’s founder. And Clare and Sara Bronfman (two of heiresses of the Seagram’s fortune) started investing with Raniere around 2003.

By 2007 the Bronfman sisters had invested more than $100 million in commodities, real estate and in litigation to sue adversaries who were preventing NXIVM from reaching its full potential.

Some of the litigation was aimed at indicting adversaries, including one of Raniere’s harem members who left the NXIVM group.

Limo-Taxi Association Says ‘Uber, Lyft Want Unfair Playing Field’ Upstate

February 23, 2017 Frank Parlato 0

By Tony Farina

“The ride-hailing companies (Uber, Lyft) can operate right now upstate if they want to,” says Kevin Barwell, president of the Limousine, Bus, Taxi Operators of Upstate New York, “if they choose to comply with the law, as they do in New York City.”

“But the fact is, they don’t want to comply, they don’t want to follow the for-hire laws which means–among other things– paying special insurance to cover drivers and passengers that can cost millions and following the other regulations that cover transportation services, as we do,” says Barwell, vice president and director of sales at Giorgio’s Limousine Service in Lancaster.

Here is a little game for those who want to be detectives.

It will take some deductive reasoning.

It concerns the federal case against Frank Parlato and a contract the US Government claims was entered into by Parlato and Clare and Sara Bronfman, Seagram heirs, alleged serial litigators, and alleged cult members.

AUSA Anthony Bruce [retired] claims that a contract, called a Letter of Intent, dated Jan. 2008. is enforceable writing to Parlato.

He wrote to Parlato that, “[T]he layman (Parlato) interpretation of the contract you entered into with the Bronfman sisters was [not enforceable], in a word, wrong.’”

Will Dyster back Ricchiazzi’s plan for a ‘Falls Ferry’?

February 16, 2017 Frank Parlato 0


It’s not a hare brained scheme but, if you will give it consideration, an idea whose time has come.

And now an investment group led by Matthew Ricchiazzi is planning to seek the long and arduous road to approval to launch a ferry service in the lower Niagara River, shuttling tourists from the base of Terrapin Point to nearly the Whirlpool Bridge.

The Maid of the Mist, owned by James Glynn, has had a monopoly on boat rides in the lower River since 1972 and has offered only a 20 minute ride with no stops, essentially shutting off the lower river to exploration. A tourist is not afforded the time to experience the lower river set deep within the 400 million year old strata of rocks along the river cut by the Falls.

Did Hindu’s Acquittal Prompt Bruce to Commit Obstruction of Justice?

While calls of victims keep coming in….

By Frank Parlato

This week, instead of an in-depth story of another case of prosecutorial misconduct committed by the notorious former Assistant United States Attorney Anthony M. Bruce, a slight retrospection is in order.

Since I began advertising for people who allege they were victims of Bruce, the day does not pass when someone doesn’t call and tell a story of how, they say, Anthony Bruce destroyed their life, or the life of someone they knew.

While sometimes you hear something that seems funny, it is not really funny when you think of the deeper meaning of the thing, like, for instance, that some of Bruce’s victims refer to him as “Brucifer.”

Perpetually high on drugs, David Ignasiak was the criminal that AUSA Anthony Bruce chose to destroy the lives of 20 innocent men who had the misfortune of being in the same club as Ignasiak.

Did Bruce pay Informant Ignasiak $80,000 to lie in Chosen Few Case?

January 19, 2017 Frank Parlato 0

By Frank Parlato;

Last week we wrote about an apparent miscarriage of justice perpetrated by former Assistant US Attorney Anthony M. Bruce as he prosecuted 20 innocent men who were members of a Depew, NY motorcycle club called the Chosen Few.

Bruce saw his case fall apart as his informant David Ignasiak was revealed to be a serial liar, a drug addict, a criminal ready to prompt men to potentially injure, even murder each other, and was possibly coached to lie.

After last week’s Chosen Few story, people started calling to tell what they knew.
