Check out the Rosamond-like painting of Morgon Eastwood in this trailer. Heather thought it would be like this, when we found each other in 2000, and the Rosamond Gallery in Carmel.
Above is a photo of me getting off a train in Eugene Oregon in 1987. I am about to enter rehab. I have had enough. I have become bigger then life. I have moved out of a converted water tower in Oakland where I have come under the protection of a very dangerous crack gang. They consider me a member of the hood. I knew the leaders when they were children. I have taken on the persona ‘Oakland Jonny’. The Sumer of Love is surely at an end. There is no love in crack. None!
When I graduated from the New Hope program at Serenity Lane, I did a skit on Jonny wearing my players hat I bought in downtown Oakland. My childhood friend, Nancy Hamren, was there. She got me on the bus, she at the core of the Kesey family legacy.
Above are photos of a phone and desk with the words “Baba Bruce”. This phone belongs to Bruce Perlowin who shows off his new office in Las Vegas. Bruce was the largest pot smuggler in history. He lived in the basement of my surrogate mother’s house on Pinehaven Road where these pics were taken. Above the phone is Perlowin’s ex-wife, Svetlana Ogorodnikova, who was a famous Russian spy that Bruce met while in the federal prison. Wanda’s second bonr son married Bruce’s ex-wife. Bruce was in business with Abbie Hoffman and would go down in the basement where I spent many a night before Bruce got out on parole.
This was a revival of the Hippie Movement that cost law enforcement billions of dollars to oppress. The billion dollar War on Drugs has been declared a failure. Who wasted most of those hippie wanna-be punks in Sudden Impact? A. A middle calss caucasion housewife who later found Jesus and became a Tea Party Patriot who campaigned for Sarah Palin. She was the first ‘Momma Grizzly’ thanks to Dirty Harry filing a false police report in order to set free – THE VICTIMS OF THE LIBERAL LEFT.
Bruce and my father, Capitan Vic, are larger then life. Bruce ‘The King of Pot’ had an article in the Oakland Tribune where he was looking for a job that would employ his organizational skills. I arranged a interview with Captain Victim, and they met at my father’s Lafayette home. Vic did not hire Bruce, because he did not grasp the idea that one could make all the money in the world by making bad real-estate loans that bordered on Loan Sharking. Bruce was too much of an idealist, he into Creative and Compassionate Capitalism, which is much like my Bohemian Bank idea that Kenny Reed ad Rick Cobian rejected.
Above is a photo of two men, one a Puerto Rican whose kindred tried to assassinate President Harry Truman. He grew up in Harlem. The other guy is Choo-Choo Joe who lived in a classic rail car in a train car in a Oakland Park. Joe served in the 101 Airborne. Our mutual friends fled from El Salvador to Oakland. One became a cop. We used to party with the Oakland police.
The guy in uniform with cigar, is my father-in-law, Robert Miles. He served in the 101 in Vietnam, and is six months younger then me. Most of his platoon buddies were black, and dopers. They would go on missions and come back with a neckless of Vietcong ears around their necks. No one dare fuck with these guys. Within minutes of meeting Robby, he called me outside, knocked me on my ass, and wanted to fight. Mr. Eastwood, the actor, sends out powerful messages he is this kind of man. Robby is the real McCoy – who killed many human beings.
The woman in the turquoise dress is my mother, Rosemary, who born four children. She is thirty three in this photo. She made porno movies for the Mafia around this time, for Big Bones Bremmer the only proven Mafia guy on the west coast. Big Bones owned card rooms in Emeryville where Rosemary worked for Rucker. Rosemary told me the mob owned garbage and landfill companies that were filling in the bay.
The woman wrapped in the curtain is Karen Holly. I believe she fathered my child, a son named William, or, Bill. Before she went into rehab she wanted to drive to LA to meet Rosemary. Why? In looking back I believe her doctor told her if she kept drinking she would lose her baby – she told me nothing about. After I got sober, I got wise, and gave her a call.
“His name is Bill. He has blonde hair. He is not yours.” Karen offered.
“Did I ask?” and there was silence. I did not know for sure if I had a daughter at this time. Above is a photo of Heather Hanson, who was growing up while my life was in the balance. She had blonde hair that runs in our family with some kindred, this a Rosamond trait that may come from Radbot the Viking Rover.
Paul Drake had made reservations at the Flamingo near the Santa Monica peir after I told him I was coming down to LA.
“Get me a room with some Bohemian class. Karen is an artist.”
Paul played Mick in Sudden Impact.
The woman with her back to us is my ex-wife, Marianne Thoraldson, who is kin to Erick the Red, and was the mistress of the reclusive Thomas Pynchon. She has come to take me out of the bad hood I lived in and is in a showdown with my crazy Mexican neighbor who dropped a big hunk of steel on his toe and is suing his boss.
In Oakland, a real con is born every second.
That’s me and my Cadillac on Pinehaven Road, and Pops at the wheel of his Chris Craft, he jugging past the place his father lived in a house boat, he a famous Barbary Coast Gambler. Victor will soon become a player in the Art World when he formed a partneship with his two daughters, one the world famous artist, Rosamond, who would a month later form a partnership with Lawrence Chazen, a ficinacial advisor for J. Paul Getty who Andrew Cuomo of HUD accused of being a Loan Shark after he made a preditory loan to Mrs. Aikens who grandson played football with Mark Presco and Oakland High, he apearing with my brother in a year book. Maryk wanted to be another Golden Boy like Jackie Jensen.
Above is Vic and his business partner, whose brother was the head of the Meixan Mafia in San Quinton. Vic would drink with Art all night then brag to me about how he was a made man. The Captian would stay in his bathrobe all day, like Vinnie the Chin Giante. He was the singing Don, a member of the Barbershop Quartet. When you here this crooner crowing, the grimm reaper is not far behind.
My daughter hates me because I stopped drinking and drugging, because I was way biffer then life, and walked the hood with a white rabbit on a silver chain. I had to let that rabbit go. If I hadn’t, she would have never met her father. I love this Lost Child – to death! She has got to get a clue! My Oakland friends offered to take care of Heather’s fake father when he was outside my abode with a baseball bat screaming I was a dead man. Patrice Hanson said he was born of a dnferous Cicilian family.
But for Bruce Perlowin, and Mick getting blown off that roller coaster in Santa Cruz, Callahan and his ilk never busted me and my boys in the hood.

FAQ: Assassination Attempt on President Truman’s Life
Two Puerto Rican nationalists, Oscar Collazo and Griselio Torresola, attempted to assassinate President Truman on November 1, 1950. They arrived in Washington D.C. the day before from the Bronx in New York City, where they were active in the Puerto Rican Nationalist Party. They thought the assassination would call attention to Puerto Rico and advance the cause of Puerto Rican independence.
On the morning of November 1, they prepared for the assault. Torresola, a skilled gunman, taught Collazo how to load and handle a gun. They familiarized themselves with the area near Blair House, across the street from the White House, where they would stage the assault. (The Truman family stayed in the Blair House during renovation of the White House from 1948 to 1952). Collazo and Torresola planned to approach the house from opposite directions and shoot their way inside. In the ensuing gun battle, Collazo and Torresola traded gunfire with White House policemen and secret service agents. They wounded three White House policemen but never reached the interior of the house. One of the wounded policemen, Private Leslie Coffelt, managed to fire one bullet and hit Torresola in the side of the head, killing him instantly. Coffelt died later that day at the hospital. Two other policemen, Donald Birdzell and Joseph Downs, were each hit more than once but recovered from their wounds. Collazo reached the steps of Blair House before collapsing with a gunshot wound to the chest. It was later found that only one shot fired by Collazo had hit anyone�his first shot, which wounded Private Birdzell. Torresola had inflicted all the other gunshot wounds on the three White House policemen. President Truman was taking a nap upstairs in Blair House when the shooting began. He rushed to a window and saw Collazo below on the front steps. A White House guard saw the President in the window and shouted to him to him to get down. The President obeyed.
A sadistic serial killer calling himself “Scorpio” (Andy Robinson) murders a young woman in a San Francisco swimming pool, using a high-powered rifle from a nearby rooftop. SFPD Inspector Harry Callahan (Clint Eastwood) finds a ransom message promising his next victim will be “a Catholic priest or a nigger” if the city does not pay $100,000. The chief of police and the Mayor (John Vernon) assign the inspector to the case.
While in a local diner, Callahan sees a bank robbery in progress and, alone with his revolver, he kills two of the robbers and wounds a third, challenging the man lying near a loaded shotgun:
I know what you’re thinking: “Did he fire six shots, or only five?” Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I’ve kinda lost track myself. But being this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you’ve got to ask yourself one question: “Do I feel lucky?” Well do ya, punk?
BRUCE PERLOWIN, DON STEINBERG, AND THE FBI
Dear Roger Wilco,
True, neither the SEC nor FBI has as their high priority busting pump-and-dump schemes on the OTC Pinksheets.
But the FBI has a very keen interest in Bruce Perlowin and Don Steinberg. Trust me on this one thing.
To wit, the U.S. Marshalls Service violated Svetlana Ogorodnikova’s parole last year.
Ms. Ogorodnikova is Perlowin’s wife.
And don’t forget: Ms. Ogorodnikova was responsible for seducing and flipping the first FBI special agent to have ever been convicted of treason (Richard Miller). He was flipped for the promise of a mere $50,000 in gold.
The FBI’s “collective memory” does not quickly forget such things.
Incidentally, Ms. Ogorodnikova got lucky. She did not serve her full term. She was released in a spy-for-spy exchange. Russia released a scientist named Igor Sutyagin, who had been giving documents to the Central Intelligence Agency. The United States of America released Ms. Ogorodnikova.
The intrigue did not stop there, but I can’t discuss it on a public forum.
Be advised that I’ve been tracking Perlowin and Steinberg for most of my career.
As a whistleblower, I initiated the FDA bust against Perlowin’s Energy Wellness scam. Indirectly, I also put his co-conspirator James Folsom behind bars.
Also, I investigated Steinberg’s GlobalCom 2000, One World Communications, Club VivaNet (CVIV.pk) and his other pyramid marketing frauds.
Needless to say, Steinberg learned a lot about pyramid marketing schemes. Currently, he has replicated that business model at the Hemp Network.
So here are those two con men, Don Steinberg and Bruce Perlowin, reinventing their company, MJNA, yet again.
First, MJNA failed as a vendor of “tax remittance cards” for medical marijuana dispensaries.
Then, they failed as a provider of technical assistance to start-up dispensaries.
Next, they failed as a promoter of symposiums andd workshops.
Then, their pyramid scheme, network marking, “hemp network” , failed.
And now? Now, they’re trying to cash in on the enhanced bottled water, “smartwater” craze.
But investors should know this much — both Steinberg and Perlowin are convicted felons.
Steinberg is a master at creating shell companies, then operating pump-and-dump schemes. In the 1990s, he cashed in at Club VivaNet, in the prepaid calling card industry.
Meanwhile, Perlowin was cited by the FDA in a sting operation called “Operation Cure All”. At the time, Perlowin was heading up a company called Energy Wellness that sold phoney device called the “Rife machine” that purported to cure everything from cancer to arthritis to acne.
Bruce Perlowin and his wife, Svetlana Ogorodnikova — a convicted KGB spy — have even been implicated in a murder-for-hire case in San Diego, that resulted in the conviction of a woman named Kimberley Bailey.
Google it up. It’s all true.
Do you still want to invested in these guys?
Plain and simple, MJNA is a fraud — stock fraud. Perlowin and Steinberg dump restricted stock — all of it worthless.
Word on the street has it that Perlowin and Steinberg are currently the subject of an FBI investigation. I heard the investigation is out of the FBI’s Miami office — their white collar crime unit. Steinberg lives in Cape Coral, Florida.
Stay tuned for more.
Convicted spy testifies in San Diego murder case
By Ben Fox The Associated Press
Thursday June 27, 2002
SAN DIEGO — In halting and heavily-accented English, a former Soviet spy recounted Wednesday how she became an FBI informant in a murder-for-hire case.
Svetlana Ogorodnikova this week is testifying as a key government witness, seven years after her release from prison. She was convicted of seducing a Los Angeles FBI agent into selling a confidential document to the Soviet Union in the 1980s.
After serving half her 18-year sentence, Ogorodnikova was released and spent several years fighting deportation from the United States — an effort she gave up by moving to Tijuana, Mexico, with a convicted drug trafficker she met and married in prison.
Ogorodnikova returned illegally to Southern California in 1999 and moved with her husband to a ranch in Fallbrook. The ranch was owned by Kimberly Bailey, who is now on trial in federal court on charges of having a San Diego private investigator tortured and murdered in an abandoned house in Tijuana.
Bailey repeatedly asked Ogorodnikova if she could hire a hitman to kill witnesses and others involved in the murder of the private investigator, Richard Post, the Russian woman testified.
“I became very scared,” said the former spy, dressed in a dark blue suit, her hair cut short. “I think maybe she’d forget, maybe she’s not serious.”
Bailey is accused of having Post kidnapped, tortured over five days in Tijuana, and then murdered because she believed he cheated on her with other women and stole money from her.
Bailey has pleaded innocent to conspiracy to murder a person in a foreign country and other charges. Through her lawyer, she has insisted that Post is alive and in hiding.
FBI agents who had the Fallbrook ranch under surveillance approached Ogorodnikova, who agreed to covertly tape conversations over the phone and in person with Bailey.
The Russian woman, according to the tapes, set up a meeting in the Mandalay Bay casino between an FBI agent posing as a hitman and Bailey, who allegedly wanted to have him kill several people involved with Post’s slaying.
In their conversations, Ogorodnikova said she and Bailey developed a code. Examples included “brother” or “lawyer” to mean hitman and “investigation” to refer to murder. “It was like a spy movie, like in James Bond,” she testified.
Bailey’s defense attorney, Philip DeMassa, said he hoped to use Ogorodnikova’s past to convince jurors that she is not a reliable witness.
“She’s an experienced KGB agent and she’s lying about everything,” he said outside the federal courtroom.
Ogorodnikova pleaded guilty to espionage charges in 1985, after she admitted seducing Richard Miller, the first FBI agent charged with espionage.
The former Soviet spy had no trouble slipping back into the United States when a friend drove her across the U.S.-Mexico border in San Diego, where inspectors failed to check Ogorodnikova’s background, according to her husband, Bruce Perlowin.
The Bailey trial is expected to last several more weeks.

The Cultural Creatives: How 50 Million People Are Changing the World is a nonfiction social sciences and sociology book by sociologist Paul H. Ray and psychologist Sherry Ruth Anderson, first published in 2000. The authors introduced the term “Cultural Creatives” to describe a large segment in Western society that has recently developed beyond the standard paradigm of Modernists or Progressives versus Traditionalists or Conservatives. Ray and Anderson claim to have found that 50 million adult Americans (slightly over one quarter of the adult population) can now be identified as belonging to this group. They estimated that there were an additional 80–90 million Cultural Creatives in Europe as of 2000.
Ray and Anderson created a questionnaire to identify Cultural Creatives in Western society. The below characteristics were identified as qualities of a Cultural Creative. Agreement with 10 or more indicates status as a Cultural Creative.
love of nature and deep caring about its preservation, and its natural balance.
strong awareness of the planet-wide issues (i.e. climate change, poverty etc.) and a desire to see more action on them
being active themselves as well (e.g. cradle2cradle principle)
willingness to pay higher taxes or spend more money for goods if that money went to improving the environment
heavy emphasis on the importance of developing and maintaining relationships
heavy emphasis on the importance of helping others and developing their unique gifts
volunteer with one or more good causes
intense interest in spiritual and psychological development
see spirituality as an important aspect of life, but worry about religious fundamentalism
desire equality for women/men in business, life and politics
concern and support of the wellbeing of all women and children
want politics and government to spend more money on education, community programs and the support of a more ecologically sustainable future
are unhappy with the left and right in politics
optimism towards the future
want to be involved in creating a new and better way of life
are concerned with big business and the means they use to generate profits, including destroying the environment and exploiting poorer countries
unlikely to overspend or be in heavy debt
dislike the emphasis of modern cultures on “making it” and “success”, on consuming and making money
like people, places and things that are different or exotic
Ray gives the term Integral Culture to the growing subculture also referred to as Transmodernism, and which he refers to as the Cultural Creatives. They are concerned with ecological sustainability and in the case of a core group have a commitment to personal and spiritual development. These are individuals who can meld the best of Traditionalism and Modernism to create a new synthesis, having a cognitive style based on synthesizing varied information from many sources into a big picture. This term can also apply to Integral Theory, a philosophy expounded by Ken Wilber.
Florida says that the Creative Class is a class of workers whose job is to create meaningful new forms (2002). It is composed of scientists and engineers, university professors, poets and architects, and also includes “people in design, education, arts, music and entertainment, whose economic function is to create new ideas, new technology and/or creative content” (Florida, 2002, p. 8). The designs of this group are seen as broadly transferable and useful. Another sector of the Creative Class includes positions that are knowledge intensive; these usually require a high degree of formal education (Florida, 2002). Examples of workers in this sector are health professionals and business managers, who are considered part of the sub-group called Creative Professionals. Their primary job is to think and create new approaches to problems. Creativity is becoming more valued in today’s global society. Employers see creativity as a channel for self-expression and job satisfaction in their employees. About 38.3 million Americans and 30 percent of the American workforce identify themselves with the Creative Class. This number has increased by more than 10 percent in the past 20 years.
The Creative Class is also known for its departure from traditional workplace attire and behavior. Members of the Creative Class may set their own hours and dress codes in the workplace, often reverting to more relaxed, casual attire instead of business suits and ties. Creative Class members may work for themselves and set their own hours, no longer sticking to the 9–5 standard. Independence is also highly regarded among the Creative Class and expected in the workplace (Florida, 2002).
