Italian Parliament's Postman Revealed To Be A Coke-Dealing Mobster

Tyler Durden's picture


It's perhaps not the most shocking headline given the circumstances but as Bloomberg reports via DPA, the man in charge of handling the correspondence at Italy's upper house of parliament was arrested Tuesday by police on drug charges. While there is no suggestion he peddled his drugs inside the senate, it seems mild-mannered Orlando Ranaldi who managed the Senate's post office by day, was a Tony Montoya-like 'Italo-Albanian' gang-member cocaine-dealer by night. We are sure Monti will just let this 'blow' over, but from now on - any unusual white powder found in envelopes may not be sniffed at like it was in the past.


Via Bloomberg:

Rome (DPA) -- The man in charge of handling the correspondence at Italy's upper house of parliament was arrested Tuesday by police on drug charges.


Orlando Ranaldi, 53, is the manager of the Senate's post office. But outside of normal office hours he doubled up as a cocaine dealer in the suburbs south of Rome, investigators said.


There is no suggestion that he also peddled drugs inside the Senate.


Ranaldi is accused of being part of an Italo-Albanian gang. Nine other people - three from Albania and seven from Italy - were arrested in the same police operation, including a traffic police officer and a bus driver.


"We are amazed, even if he is not an employee of the Senate: he was sent by the post company to work here," said Paolo Franco of the Northern League, one of three senators who are responsible for administrative affairs within the institution.

No suggestion that he peddled coke in the parliment.  JUST THE FUCKING OBVIOUS CONCLUSION.

A Swiss cop told me (years ago) that the Albanian Mafia was the worst in his country.

If that is the dude, he really looks like Gary Busey or Nick Nolte. And if not, then we've probably just fingered one of the bigger recipients of the coke.

I love people like you . . . you didn't look at the article and you trash it.


There is a picture for your non-thinking mind to contemplate. But yeah, maybe they photoshopped it. And maybe the story of the nurder in another city is just an urban legend. And maybe it's people like you that will wake up one morning and wonder how things that happened ever occured - after all, you are soooo well informed.


Deal with this reality - it happened. China is going down the tubes fast. This is what happens when you have a godless society - or to be more exact, when money is your god. You know, just like the Duocratpubs are creating in America. Obama or Romney - die by firing squad or die by hanging.


Oh well, might as well talk to the wall . . . it has a higher IQ than someone who trashes an article before they read it.

I've read Infowars in the past. It's a joke. Alex Jones is as much of a sensationalists alarmists as Glenn Beck.

Additionally, he has been exposed numerous times for cherry picking his information to suit his world view and the view he is trying to push. While I realize that is no different than most other shitty news outlets, it's still shitty "journalism"...regardless of who is doing it.

He gets on these moronic rants about "death cults" and "lizard people" and all sorts of ridiculous shit and that is PRECISELY why he has become the MSM poster-boy/go-to-guy for all things "conspiracy theory". Because he DISCREDITS them by being so bombastically ignorant! He is a tool. A puppet. Face it.

If you're looking ror real news, look at or or or a variety of other places that do NOT function under the belief that being louder makes you right or smarter.

Real news and "sensationalistic alarmist" are NOT the same thing.

Now correct me if I am wrong here.  I mostly am.  But that bloke is off a documentary with steven seagall where seagal is a cook on US military ship and that bloke in the picture is a fucking sabteur who then takes over the ship.

Now at the end of this documentary this fucker is killed.  So why is he swaning around having his fucking picture took when by all rights he is dead??  Something does not add up here folks, dead folk just dont go around getting photos took of them??

And I know for a fact that steven seagall is a hard cunt, and I seen it with my own eyes that he killed this fucking imposter, so the logical thing to asume is this story is a fucking HOAX.

Trust me, I know these things......  Well, most of the time anyhow.

If we arrested all the  drug users and pushers in Congress, there would only be a couple of lawmakers left to do the "people's" work. Random drug testing of all politicians, public officials and judges should be mandatory. It's absolutely farsical to see people like Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi, et al. try to explain their non-sensical, idealogical policies with drug-addled, chemically imbalanced reasoning.

Drunks, junkies, pedophiles, thugs, criminals who only answer to the call of greed. And yet, they are the ones deciding our futures. We've come full circle. These are the same miscreants who fried their brains in the sixties and rebelled against the very establishment they have become. Bitch Bastards.
