Reagan's Darker Side:
Reagan's Mob Connections Hid

counting the money
A long time friend of Reagan, the powerful and connected Lew Wasserman — Chairman and CEO of MCA (Music Corporation of America), the parent of Universal Studios, until 1990 when it was sold to Matsushita for $6.6 billion — protected Reagan from any taint of ''dirty'' money. Wasserman was "connected," but that it was not known precisely how and few wanted to know. Julius Stein and Wasserman had had little choice — in order to succeed in show business in their day, they had to deal with the Mob — especially Stein, who started out in Al Capone's Chicago, and formed a liaison with James Petrillo, the head of the American Federation of Musicians local in Chicago and, eventually, its national president. They did what they had to do — in the world of the ''Great Depression''. When MCA bought Universal Studios, federal regulators forced Wasserman to dissolve MCA's agency wing because MCA was representing performers as their agent while its production company was hiring them; as this violated anti-trust laws in 1962. Wasserman made an estimated $350 million from the sale, and was retained as a manager. When Seagram bought MCA in 1995, he retired from management, but remained on the board of directors until 1998. Paradoxically, he was a committed Democratic and one of Bill Clinton's earliest backers.

He knows all!
I'd Trust Him Over Reagan Any Day!

In an recent article John Waters reminds all that Connie Bruck stated in her book on Lew Wasserman When Hollywood Had a King: The Reign of Lew Wasserman, Who Leveraged Talent into Power and Influence, that Reagan used to go out whoring with the Hollywood mob fixer and lawyer Sidney Korshak. He was a confidant of several studio heads and negotiated corporate mergers, political deals and labor settlements behind the scenes. He became almost as renowned for his penchant for anonymity as his backroom dominance. Part of his cache was the ability to serve as a liaison between corporate titans and underworld chieftains.

remember trudeau taking on Sinatra?
The "Doonesbury" strip from July 11th, 1979

Sidenote: Connie Bruck's book is more epic, covering as it does the business careers of Jules Stein and Lew Wassermann from the 1920s into the 21st Century in addition to telling the history of their company MCA and the industry they "ruled". There is not much surprising celebrity scandal that unfolds, except some strong hints that Ronald Reagan was a charming empty suit who received many sweetheart deals from the industry and he gave back in return. In some ways the Wasserman life story told here is one of the rise and fall, the young mans glory being used by younger students against him. And even though MCA associated with the mob and the mob with them Wasserman gave heavily to his industry and charity. Bruck makes such correlations with consummate precision while preserving, throughout her examination of Wasserman ("a shark you almost had to admire as he circled you") the nuances of his multi-dimensional humanity. Wasserman's fondness came from Reagan being the star that earned him his first million dollar contract.

Also Iran-contra, Nikki Finke reports: Henry Denker, a well-known theater, TV and radio writer penned a thinly disguised ''roman à clef'' about the “TCA” talent agency, its ties with the mob and a has-been actor turned Western state governor. The Kingmaker disappeared soon after publication, reportedly because Wasserman had it deep-sixed. It remains one of the hardest books about Hollywood to find. More easier to find is mystery and screenplay author Roger L. Simon's 2nd ''Moses Wine'' novel ''Wild Turkey'' which features mobster ''Meyer Greenglass'' who is clearly based on Sidney Korshak and deals with a mystery that focuses on that era in Hollywood.
use fiction to find the truth

Crusading muckraker Dan E. Moldea shows the three were connected as the rise of MCA and its move to Hollywood paralleled the rise of the Chicago Mafia and its infiltration of the motion picture industry. While MCA was representing some of the top motion picture stars, Chicago mobsters took control of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE), the major Hollywood labor union — through Willie Bioff, a small-time hood, who was supervised by Chicago mob lieutenant Johnny Roselli. Though soon Hollywood was told Sidney Korshak was their representative.

No One Asks Why The Media Gave
Reagan A ''Pass'' On A Charge of Rape
But Everyone is Ready To Give Kitty Kelly
A Kick To Her Crotch

On what was called “The Battle of the Couch” by Kitty Kelley, she describe a date rape-like situation involving then 19 year old Selene Walters and Reagan. Further, in the April 29, 1991, issue of People Magazine, Selene Walters said that 42 year old Ronald Reagan raped her in 1952 confirming the basic version of the episode in Kelly's unauthorized biography of Nancy Reagan:

“ … Kelley's account of his late-night visit is essentially accurate,
although he never forced his way into her apartment. I opened
the door. Then it was the battle of the couch. I was fighting him.
I didn't want him to make love to me. He's a very big man, and
he just had his way. Date rape? No, God, no, that's Kelley's phrase.
I didn't have a chance to have a date with him. … ”

In their editor at large Jack Shafer's March 5, 1999 Slate article, Gipper the Ripper: - “… Ronald Reagan successfully stonewalled the Walters' story when the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the Los Angeles Times picked it up briefly in April 1991. And remember, this was three and a half years before his Alzheimer's disease diagnosis. The weekend the book was released, a reporter asked Reagan for a comment about it as he entered church.

"... I don't think a church would be the proper place to use the word I
would have to use in discussing that," he said.

Not exactly a denial.”

Losing Wyman Drove Ronnie Into The Arms of Hookers

Kelley other insight into Reagan's character comes off even worse: After the breakup of his marriage to Wyman and before he met Nancy, Reagan had an affair with starlet Jacqueline Park, later the mistress of Warner Bros. studio boss Jack Warner. Park told Kelley that when the two began dating, Reagan couldn't perform sexually. I think he was still suffering withdrawal pains from Jane Wyman. Throughout their liaison, Park said, "He never took me out in public, never gave me a present and never ever paid for a cab for me." According to Park, when she became pregnant; Reagan denied that the child was his and ended the affair. When questioned later Jacqueline Park admitted Kelley quoted her fairly accurately: “ … When I told him I was pregnant, he said he didn't want to have anything to do with me anymore. He just ran out on me. …”

Assorted Miscellaneous Information
You Can Use To Stymie Reagan Youth

From Kevin Jeys article October 29, 1998 Elective Affinities, Part II:

“… The sexual shenanigans of Ronald and Nancy Reagan were never a secret. Both were most relentlessly promiscuous while in Hollywood, locus of the nation’s largest, longest, strongest and most obsessively tended gossip grapevine. Many a starlet seeking studio entree via the well-traveled smile-and-spread circuit hopefully ungirdled her loins and passed under Reagan, while Nancy’s name was routinely circulated among executives in search of a fast and practiced backseat blowjob. … Though until Kitty Kelley I’d never heard the tale of how Reagan blithely bounced the bedsprings with lover Christine Larson while wife Nancy struggled to give birth to daughter Patti, I was one of probably millions of Americans cognizant of the open joke of Nancy’s cuckolding of Ronnie with longtime lover Frank Sinatra in the residence quarters of the White House, and anyone in the nation who paid attention to the numbers—and could count even to nine — realized Nancy was four months pregnant when she pledged to Ron "I do." …”

The above referenced in Jackson Thoreau's article“ Republicans Involved in Sex Scandals as Much as Democrats in the section — The affairs of Reagan and the conservatives who went after Clinton — “ … Ronald Reagan was revered by conservatives … But how many know about Reagan’s extramarital affairs, including how he reportedly had sex with mistress Christine Larson as Nancy Reagan gave birth to daughter Patti? Or that he was regularly known to engage in extramarital sex with various Hollywood wannabe actresses?”

Nancy's Revenge
We should also mention that Nancy was among the many Hollywood housewives who revenge themselves on philandering husbands by a visit to Uncle Miltie:

You know the old story about Milton and Forrest Tucker having big _______, right? I guess Berle and Tuck both had ones in the 12" to 16" neighborhood. The show biz guys all had a steam room they went to in New York. Jackie Gleason was horsing around one afternoon, and decided he wanted to measure them to see who’s was bigger. Berle allegedly had the advantage by about 2 inches. Gleason said, "Come on Milt, just take enough out to win the bet for me."

Dick Shawn described being in the steam room with Berle this way, "I didn’t have my glasses on. I thought he had a small child standing next to him… until I realized it was his ______." But the quote seems more akin to Buddy Hackett.

The Hollywood A-List has this to say about Nancy in a nastier manner: ''“The eminence grise(ly) in the Reagan White House. Used astrology to determine policy decisions. Slept with Frank Sinatra in the White House itself. Personally pro-choice but kept quiet and supported anti-choice actions for her husband's career. Former "Hostess Girl Escort'' for the studios when they needed to recruit investors or starpower; Famous for giving the best head in Hollywood in her day according to Peter Lawford. Was three months pregnant when she married Ronnie. Failed to say ''no'' to pot at least once. Supposedly verbally abused her children. Went to orgies with Alfred and Betsy Bloomingdale with Ronnie.
Sexually linked with:
The most evil thing Reagan did was to pave the way for the first Bush Junta White House; Most appropriate trivia information is the street number of the Reagan home in Bel Air was 666.

    Hide the wimmenfolk and the cattle

    a good woman

    Demure, but yet so classy - the Purple Pinup Guru has been fortunate enough to grace the presence of one of the most gracious actors to be working on the same studio lot of where he is employed a few times while he picks up a DVD or woofing down a green tea smoothie at the Jamba Juice bar (thanks to Sparky's recommendation- it tastes just like ice cream). I don't care how many times Sandra Bullock proclaims herself as the reigning 'queen of the commissary snack bar' - no one can hold a beacon to Lauren Graham. Lauren is easily approachable and easy to pass off a complement to for her heralded work on one of the WB's highest rated series, The Gilmore Girls. Heck, there was one time, the Guru was befuddled and pressed for time to find some holiday baby clothes for his three year-old niece in the studio store, and just by coincidence, she was passing by and wooed over the Guru's shoulder to say, 'ohhhhh, That little jumpsuit looks so cute' - the PP Guru then quickly whipped out his billfold and made the purchase right on the spot! And thus, a shopping chore was to put to rest due to the divine intervention of Ms. Graham.

    But once again, there are strange stirring below the tunic for this one- rumors of tiaras, golden lassoes, and telepathic invisible planes are emitting claxon bell sounds when it comes to the negotiation table that there is a strong possiblity that Graham could indeed lasso in the role of WONDER WOMAN which is currently in pre-production as being marionetted by Joel Silver with Joss Wheldon pulling the strings of the script. It would make a whole lotta perfect sense to the PP Guru- seeing as how Joel's production office is practically RIGHT NEXT DOOR to the Gilmore Girl's main soundstage with the studio store and STARBUCK'S being the only obstruction standing between the two.

    The Purple Pinup Guru went last night to apply his stock- in- trade STALKING techniques by supplying the proper credentials to gain access to the main lot of the Studio - of whose name cannot be uttered due to the likely possibility of getting his rosy hairy ass hauled off by security- and made a quick pit stop to the company store and relayed my findings to one of the store clerks who moles for me who is who stops in and when. When the PP Guru inquired about Graham, the clerk sadly murmured that Lauren had to fly off the lot just as soon as production wrapped on next month's season finale because of her mother had passed away in London a couple of weeks ago.

    Well, that blows. I really hate it when tragedy befalls such a sweet kind of person as Lauren.

    The Purple Pinup Guru will keep an eyeful (especially when it comes to Lauren) on this story as it develops.

    There are comic book conventions happening all year around the clock- such as the one in San Diego, which is a annual mandatory attendance. The other cons happening all around the nation and the other are touch and go, depending on much you want to experience a different atomosphere and such- but not many media outlets converge and swarm over the ultimate 'BOOK' con as much as they do with the outdoor tent event taking place this weekend on the UCLA campus called the LA Times Festival of Books which is now in it's tenth year.

    Jeez, has it been that long?

    Anyway, there is going to be thousands and thousands of diverse books and materials both for purchase and to give away of many genres and culture shocks that it will make a hoedown taking place at a Santa Monica high school look tame in comparsion. So head on down and just hold out your hand and the PP Guru guarantees it's not going to be empty by the time you walk out of there- better yet, bring down your leftover Halloween candy bag.

    There will be stars galore in attendance as well as much famed authors. Robert Crais, Mary Higgins Clark, Tony Hillerman, and Ray Bradbury (of whom, if you haven't seen the man live in person- this would be the opportune time to do it- alas, because poor Ray isn't going to be long for this mortal place- in fact, I wouldn't be all surprised if he keels right out of his wheelchair right there and then) hobnobbing with the likes of Carrie Fisher & Eric Idle.

    So there's fun, food, folks, and more fun. Heck, you might stumble in Ed Asner reading bedtime stories to small children, or Kevin Smith go on stage and spew about his View Askew products, or you might just get run over by Dom DeLuise in a golf cart rushing to get to the last of what's left at the Krispy Kreme donut booth.

    The Purple Pinup Guru shall be there tomorrow, time permitting after when he picks up his Porcupine Tree tickets which go on sale at noon.

    Sparky Steals From His Betters:
    Xtians really Paulists ——
    “Jesus” Was Only A Whisper
    Campaign Gone Horribly Wrong

    "The conversion of Paul was no conversion at all: it was Paul who converted the religion that has raised one man above sin and death into a religion that delivered millions of men so completely into their dominion that their own common nature became a horror to them, and the religious life became a denial of life." - George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950)

    I go farther than Hyam Maccoby in saying that Paul of Tarsus created the whisper campaign that spawned 'Jesus' as we know "him" today.

    bad dream

    The events surrounding "Jesus" were supposed to have taken place within a certain time in history, normally taken to be around 4 BCE to 33 CE. A rudimentary knowledge of the history during that period is needed. The main information sources of Jesus' life are from the documents known as the gospels. It is important to note that there is no independent contemporaneous source, external to the gospels, that gives any reliable information about Jesus. Thus it becomes very important to know as much as we can about the background of these gospels: namely the authorship, date of composition and general reliability. Next we ask ourselves the obvious question, could documents written at least close to half a century after the death of its main character, by non-eyewitnesses, give reliable testimonies of that person's life. We ask whether the oral tradition gives us confidence in the gospels? The answer is a resounding "No." The elapsed period between the written account and the purported events certainly allow corruption of the stories.

    For Example: The Nativity is 100% mythological with no basis in historical fact. Ironically, the best external support for this comes from an episode in the gospel of Mark.
    1. The genealogies in Matthew and Luke contradict one another.
    2. The Virgin Birth is based upon pagan myths and a mistranslation of Isaiah.
    3. Despite what the Catholic Church teaches, Mary was no "perpetual virgin".
    4. The stories relating to "Jesus'" birth in Bethlehem are not consistent.
    5. The story of Herod's slaughter of the innocents, told in Matthew is a work of pure fiction.
    6. The two stories in Matthew and Luke with respect to their (Joseph, Mary and "Jesus") settling in Nazareth are not compatible.
    7. Matthew openly relies on Old Testament passages to construct his story of the nativity. In some cases he even twisted the Old Testament passages to fit his story.
    8. Two historical events, the census of Quirinius and the death of Herod, separated from each other by a decade, were presented in the gospels as contemporaneous.
    9. The Herod-Quirinius problem means that any attempt to date the birth of Jesus based on the gospel accounts, is predestined to fail.
    10. Other elements of the Nativity can also be shown to be unreliable. These stories were most likely constructed from the ground up from Old Testament accounts and popular myths.

    First rewriting Old Testament stories to make up new stories have little to do with dishonesty, at least in the way the first century evangelists see it. The key word here is midrash. It is a method used by the ancient Jewish theologians to interpret and expand the sacred scripture. It is the belief that current events are somehow tied to past sacred events in a very systematic way. That it is present in the Old Testament has been long known to theologians. Old Testament passages actually takes precedence over the evangelists other source documents. As example, Matthew copied extensively from Mark, and must have considered it to be a reasonably reliable source. Yet he would change Mark's account if it does not fit into what Matthew believed to be Old Testament prediction about "Jesus." The glaring example is the passage where Matthew had "Jesus" sitting on two donkeys at the same time during the Triumphal entry into Jerusalem.

    Secondly, we see above that Matthew did not faithfully record what the Old Testament verses said. He twisted and changed the passages to make them fit his theological preconceptions. So, far from proving the Bible prophecies, reliance on Old Testament passages tends to point towards the basic unhistoricity of the stories.

    No reference whatsoever to "Jesus" from contemporaneous Jewish sources exists:
    1. Philo of Alexandria: would have been a contemporary of "Jesus" — someone who maintained an active interest in the welfare of Israel and thus should have learnt of this Son of God — and in his writings there is no mention of "Jesus" or his followers.
    2. Justus of Tiberias was a Jewish historian who was born in Galilee about the time of the claimed crucifixion. In his two great works, a history of the war of independence and a chronicle of events from Moses to Agrippa II (d. 100 CE), not a single reference was made to "Jesus."
    3. Flavius Josephus was trained as a Pharisee and the passages attributed to him do not read true to this; It fails a standard test for authenticity, in that it contains vocabulary not used by Josephus per the Complete Concordance to Flavius Josephus, ed. K. H. Rengstorf, 2002. Professor Shlomo Pines found a different version of Josephus testimony in an Arabic version of the tenth century. It has obviously not been interpolated in the same way as the Christian version circulating in the West. Most scholars do not believe Josephus wrote the passages, but that it is a later addition by Christian scribes - Bishop Warburton denounced it as "a rank forgery and a very stupid one, too."
    4. The Canonization of the Tenach occurred between 180 BCE through 200 CE. It does not mention 'Jesus' anywhere.
    No independent historical testimony on "Jesus" from non-Christian sources exists either:
    1. Cornelius Tacitus echoed popular opinion about "Jesus" and had no independent source of information. The passage in the Annals as written in 115 CE has no value as a historical evidence for "Jesus."
    2. His contemporary Suetonius's erroneous single use of the title Chrestus as though it was a proper name indicates that he got his information from popular opinion and not independent historical testimony as he is talking of the period of 41 - 54 CE when Claudius is ruling Rome as Emperor. He also seems to imply that there was someone called Chrestus in Rome in 49CE when the expulsion occurred. This makes him a very dubious source indeed.
    Missionaries lie ... and are ignorant of their own dogma. Lay persons are just displaying “magical thinking” ...

    "Everything is falling into place. It can't be long now. Ezekiel says that fire and brimstone will be rained upon the enemies of God's people. That must mean they'll be destroyed by nuclear weapons... Gog the nation that will lead all of the other powers of darkness against Israel, will come out of the north...

    Hopefully tomorrow, I'll get started on chronicling my APE mis-adventures, only two weeks late, if that's ok with you. I'm getting kicked out of the office early today because our OT got swiped away from us so I have to leave from the eight hours that I punched in.

    But at least I leave you with a preview of things to come:

    * Spock's Beard concert review.

    *An announcement that I will be rewarding three sets of the entire Deposit Man & the Last Great Gate of Mortality mini-series to the lucky winners in a mailing list contest in celebration of seeing the entire thing come to fruition only because I want to show off my new mailing address labels that Oliver whipped up for me. And future news concerning more Deposit Man products.

    *My daily DVD lifestyle.

    *A elegy to one of my now ex-co-workers, who was a major fucking asshole BTW. A month has gone by since he 'left the company' but still, I feel a proper tribute is in order.

    *More political and male chauvinism shenanigans than you can shake a fistful of mega-dildoes at, because that's what my audience expects from me

    ....and I deliver spades.



    Someone please make the madness stop!!

    More epiphanies of combined words and phrases have sprouted out of my mind and I cannot resist the urge to shit type them through my fucking skinny malnourished fingers:

    The Bielski Brothers, A Stolen Life, Piano Lessons, The Bill From My Father, Maid of Dishonor, Things to Do Before I Die, Legend, Boyfriend in a Box, Grumpy Old Men, No Pain No Gain, Kung Fu/American Samurai, Act 5, Under & Alone, Warm Up Guy, Love Crazy, How I Spent All Day Burping up my Garlic Bagel, Novel, Tesla, Sandblast, Logan's Run, Freedom House, Renaissance Girl, The Sunowner, Freedom Writers, Stealing Cars, and Honor Among Thieves.

    Can anyone guess the fake epiphany that I threw into that boiling cauldron?

    Ya' gotta hand it to the Vatican- they sure know how to pick 'em.

    According to a news report that aired on AirAmerica, new appointed Pope Adolf Benedict XVI once marched in the Nazi Army. On yahoo, it says he flew Nazi anti-aircraft.

    What? Yikes. I wonder if he still keeps his portable easy-bake oven still hidden under those robes?

    WikiPedia says: " .... Joseph Ratzinger was born in Marktl am Inn, in Bavaria, the son of a police officer who was staunchly anti-Nazi. In 1937 Ratzinger's father retired and settled in the town of Traunstein. When Ratzinger turned 14 in 1941, he joined the Hitler Youth, as was required by law from 1938 on. According to National Catholic Reporter correspondent and biographer John Allen, Ratzinger was an unenthusiastic member who refused to attend any meetings. In 1943, at the age of 16, he and the rest of his class were drafted into the Flak or anti-aircraft corps, responsible for guarding a BMW plant outside Munich. He was then sent for basic infantry training and was posted to Austrian-Hungarian border, where he worked setting up anti-tank defences. After being shipped back to Bavaria, he deserted in May 1945 and returned to Traunstein.

    Shortly after returning to Traunstein, he was detained in an Allied POW camp. By June he was repatriated, and he and his brother (Georg) entered a Catholic seminary. On June 29, 1951, they were ordained by Cardinal Faulhaber of Munich. His dissertation (1953) was on Saint Augustine, his Habilitationsschrift (second dissertation) on Saint Bonaventure. He gained a doctorate of theology in 1957 and became a professor of Freising college in 1958.

    Ratzinger was a professor at the University of Bonn from 1959 until 1963, when he moved to the University of Münster. In 1966, he took a chair in dogmatic theology at the University of Tübingen, where he was a colleague of Hans Küng but was confirmed in his traditionalist views by the liberal atmosphere of Tübingen and the Marxist leanings of the student movement of the 1960s. Ratzinger was a liberal theological adviser at the Second Vatican Council but became more conservative after the 1968 student movement prompted him to defend the faith against secularism. In 1969 he returned to Bavaria, to the University of Regensburg. ..."
