Human Resources: Social Engineering In The 20th Century


The Twin Towers, Like The Empire State Building, Were Used As Promotional Symbols For New York City

With a little research you will find that the 220 combined floors were not fully utilized. Now one tower stands in their place. I think the 9/11 controlled demolitions had to do with real estate development conditions and not some kind of mystical synchronized fate. These impressive marvels of steel represent the power of modern industry and business. Towers such as these are obviously supposed to be symbols of civilization. Now when you see these towers you should cower, thinking of death and destruction.

Some Mature Language Lies Ahead

The Denial of Death: Saturn The Grim Prospector

"The prospect of death, Dr. Johnson said, wonderfully concentrates the mind. The main thesis of this book is that it does much more than that: the idea of death, the fear of it, haunts the human animal like nothing else; it is a mainspring of human activity — activity designed largely to avoid the fatality of death, to overcome it by denying in some way that it is the final destiny for man. The noted anthropologist A. M. Hocart once argued that primitives were not bothered by the fear of death; that a sagacious sampling of anthropological evidence would show that death was, more often than not, accompanied by rejoicing and festivities; that death seemed to be an occasion for celebration rather than fear — much like the traditional Irish wake. Hocart wanted to dispel the notion that (compared to modern man) primitives were childish and frightened by reality; anthropologists have now largely accomplished this rehabilitation of the primitive."

"But this argument leaves untouched the fact that the fear of death is indeed a universal in the human condition. To be sure, primitives often celebrate death — as Hocart and others have shown — because they believe that death is the ultimate promotion, the final ritual elevation to a higher form of life, to the enjoyment of eternity in some form. Most modern Westerners have trouble believing this any more, which is what makes the fear of death so prominent a part of our psychological make-up."

Why do the the United States Government, its international allies and it's media minions terrorize the human population of the world?

Got to keep the workers busy turning the wheel of industry for all time.

Unless you are asleep or a "new bee", you probably have started to notice that the News media and governments of the world are stuck in an endless and seemingly eternal loop of horrific headlines about a chaotic world teetering forever on the brink of nuclear annihilation. Why does the media report that the world is ending and that the sky is falling, when there is no real evidence it is? When we actually look around the world we can examine and not Platonic video shades, we see a world that is not a cartoon nightmare as described by media punditry and politicians. Of course, the old contrived problem, reaction, solution game is continuously played and the eternal audience of social media connected citizenry believes filtered screened augmented nonsense is reality. Too many human minds truly believe all the News media noise. The News media is really what is responsible for dumbing down human minds for generations. The human resource should not know how to think. They need only to know what to think and that can be programmed.

No matter if the News story is true, is false or somewhere between, the News media will blow it out of proportion with the purpose of maintaining the idea that we need all the layers of government we foot the bill for. We are wage based tax slaves in an inhuman system. We are all lab mice in a maze of terrorized lies and distorted truths. Most, if not all major News stories,  if  real at all, are just local problems that local interests can deal with. The News media, Hollywood and government promote a vision of the world where "We" must all pitch in to do our part to save it. Of course "We the People" is just empty marketing rhetoric and the vast human resource of the planet is herded into brave new worlds of ever evolving technological based commercial enterprise. The News media promotes the fallacious idea that we should be concerned with all sorts of narratives that we must rely on government and the News itself to verify in illogical circular reasoned manner that most accept as rationally and demonstrably grounded in reality. I think it wiser to concern ourselves with local issues we can verify for ourselves and not with international, national and other such stories that draw our attention away from what we can authenticate and towards soap opera like nonsense we are unlikely to ever truly be able to confirm for ourselves. International and national crisis have long been used to justify all sorts of societal change. The truth is governments are corporate entities that represent commercial enterprise. Any government outside your local village hall, where you can go down and in person have your voice actually heard, is problematic for obvious reason. We send tax money out to county, state and national government to only have it trickle back to us with strings attached. For example, we have little control over our public education systems as that control lies at the state and federal levels. Adult human beings are considered to be too stupid to make mistakes for themselves. Sins get monetized into profitable crimes. And in the process the real crime committed is the demonstrable generational damage done to the average adult human mind.

War Bondage

Governments serve international banking interests and always have. Government exists not for you or me. It exists to organize the human resource. It's not easy to get groups of people to act together as one. War and the other three proverbial horsemen are the tools of existential threat long used as terrifying carrot and stick. War and existential threat keep us toiling away tuning the wheel of endless industry. Wars and governmental whistleblowers and all sorts of media shepherds are usually scripted and contrived governmental actors who are controlled oppositional figures and are part of the show. These pied pipers are scripted leaders who lead the workforce into building things like highways, global Coca Cola bottling plants, international airports, hotel chains and all the rest.

Wars and images of super powered weaponry are just the stuff of Hollywood special effects. Nation states are convenient fictions as are major political parties. National identities, sports teams, and all sorts of other divisive, team building, political divide and conquer style management techniques are the order of the day as crafted chaos is used to justify all sorts of restrictions on human freedom and the continuous growth of the cancer known as government. 

Wars are scripted and contrived affairs. All the world really is a stage and there seems to be a layer of unreality to our collective existence. We seem to have lifetime, live action role players among us. Ours is a world of screaming Chicken Little News headlines proclaiming the eternally just about to happen end of the world, with the mythic Fenrir wolf forever sniffing at our collective door.

The Hollywood promoted voluntary war bonds of World War One would evolve into mandatory taxes we will never be free from.

Terror Management Theory

"The simplest examples of cultural values that manage the terror of death are those that purport to offer literal immortality (e.g. belief in afterlife, religion). However, TMT also argues that other cultural values – including those that are seemingly unrelated to death – offer symbolic immortality. For example, value of national identity, posterity, cultural perspectives on sex, and human superiority over animals[6] have all been linked to death concerns in some manner. In many cases these values are thought to offer symbolic immortality either a) by providing the sense that one is part of something greater that will ultimately outlive the individual (e.g. country, lineage, species), or b) by making one's symbolic identity superior to biological nature (i.e. you are a personality, which makes you more than a glob of cells).

Because cultural values determine that which is meaningful, they are also the foundation for all self-esteem. TMT describes self-esteem as being the personal, subjective measure of how well an individual is living up to their cultural values.

TMT is derived from anthropologist Ernest Becker's 1973 Pulitzer Prize-winning work of nonfiction The Denial of Death, in which Becker argues most human action is taken to ignore or avoid the inevitability of death. The terror of absolute annihilation creates such a profound – albeit subconscious – anxiety in people that they spend their lives attempting to make sense of it. On large scales, societies build symbols: laws, religious meaning systems, cultures, and belief systems to explain the significance of life, define what makes certain characteristics, skills, and talents extraordinary, reward others whom they find exemplify certain attributes, and punish or kill others who do not adhere to their cultural worldview. On an individual level, self-esteem provides a buffer against death-related anxiety."

You Are a Resource, Human, Without Afterlife

Get rid of the idea of an afterlife of some kind, and you end up with a public truly afraid of death, making terror based News feed poison all the more effective.

"But this argument leaves untouched the fact that the fear of death is indeed a universal in the human condition. To be sure, primitives often celebrate death — as Hocart and others have shown — because they believe that death is the ultimate promotion, the final ritual elevation to a higher form of life, to the enjoyment of eternity in some form. Most modern Westerners have trouble believing this any more, which is what makes the fear of death so prominent a part of our psychological make-up."

Human Resources Social Engineering In The 20th Century  source: ANDERSON

"Published on May 6, 2013...Human Resources: Social Engineering in the 20th Century explores the rise of mechanistic philosophy and the exploitation of human beings under modern hierarchical systems. Topics covered include behaviorism, scientific management, work-place democracy, schooling, frustration-aggression hypothesis and human experimentation. Scott Noble, the filmmaker behind the extraordinary and informative documentary "Psywar" has made another revelatory and important documentary, available free to the public, called "Human Resources: Social Engineering in the 20th Century".  "Essentially", says Scott, "this film is about the rise of mechanistic philosophy and the exploitation of human beings under modern hierarchical systems." The film includes original interviews with: Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Rebecca Lemov (World as Laboratory), Christopher Simpson (The Science of Coercion), George Ritzer (The McDonaldization of Society), Morris Berman (The Reenchantment of the World), John Taylor Gatto (Dumbing us Down), Alfie Kohn (What does it mean to be well educated?) and others. Read David Ker Thomson's review of the film. He writes: It answers the significant events of the last century the way a glass answers the implicit questions of a man who peers into its reflective surface, point for point. It corresponds, in short, to reality."

The Denial of Death: Civilization As Defense Against Death

"The basic premise of The Denial of Death is that human civilization is ultimately an elaborate, symbolic defense mechanism against the knowledge of our mortality, which in turn acts as the emotional and intellectual response to our basic survival mechanism. Becker argues that a basic duality in human life exists between the physical world of objects and a symbolic world of human meaning. Thus, since humanity has a dualistic nature consisting of a physical self and a symbolic self, we are able to transcend the dilemma of mortality through heroism, by focusing our attention mainly on our symbolic selves. This symbolic self-focus takes the form of an individual's "immortality project" (or "causa sui project"), which is essentially a symbolic belief-system that ensures oneself is believed superior to physical reality. By successfully living under the terms of the immortality project, people feel they can become heroic and, henceforth, part of something eternal; something that will never die as compared to their physical body. This, in turn, gives people the feeling that their lives have meaning, a purpose, and are significant in the grand scheme of things.

Becker argues that the arbitrariness of human-invented immortality projects makes them naturally prone to conflict. When one immortality project conflicts with another, it is essentially an accusation of 'wrongness of life', and so sets the context for both aggressive and defensive behavior. Each party will want to prove its belief system is superior, a better way of life. Thus these immortality projects are considered a fundamental driver of human conflict, such as in wars, bigotry, genocide, and racism.[citation needed]

Another theme running throughout the book is that humanity's traditional "hero-systems", such as religion, are no longer convincing in the age of reason. Science attempts to serve as an immortality project, something that Becker believes it can never do, because it is unable to provide agreeable, absolute meanings to human life. The book states that we need new convincing "illusions" that enable us to feel heroic in ways that are agreeable. Becker, however, does not provide any definitive answer, mainly because he believes that there is no perfect solution. Instead, he hopes that gradual realization of humanity's innate motivations, namely death, can help to bring about a better world."

The Power of The Artist

"Like the schizophrenic, creative and artistic individuals deny both physical reality and culturally-endorsed immortality projects, expressing a need to create their own reality. The primary difference is that creative individuals have talents that allow them to create and express a reality that others may appreciate, rather than simply constructing an internal, mental reality."

According To Bob Weir Bohemian Grove Was Founded For Artists By Artists

Forget the tabloid noise protecting the obvious Hollywood con artist truth.

The Grove is not about Alex Jones tabloid conspiracy fodder. Pay attention to what Bob Weir explains. I think he is telling it like it is. Pay attention to the language he uses and his choice of words. Keep in mind that war is largely a scripted news reel affair. Please keep in mind too, the history of Lookout Mountain Air Force Film Laboratory where  much of the atom bomb footage was manufactured and where people like Ronald Reagan had security clearance based employment.

By the way E=MC2 is another example of an artifact or symbol of religious faith. That equation models nothing real. Why is the so-called speed of light squared anyway? This equation is foundational to understanding the joke of the atom bomb hoax. A future article will get into that subject. For now consider how fast and with little testing, the Manhattan Project was able to achieve magic success and compare to how long real technology takes to advance and how long real engineering takes. If memory serves there were only the two World War Two bombs produced, there was no room for error. Does that make sense? And one more one eyed detective thing, the Nazi's loved pomp, circumstance, scripted live action science fiction cartoons, television technology and film making too. Hitler comes across like just another black and white newsreel era, crisis actor.

CIA Chief of Operations "Buffalo Bill" Quinn  Died on 9/11

Wars and super powered governmental military might are the things of Hollywood fantasy and magician stage craft.

The incentive is simple self preservation and procreation. Government needs to both survive and thrive and like a cancer it has spent the last century growing and spawning new hydra heads. With the aid of its Hollywood minion, government has grown into quite a cancerous blight on this world of ours. Human beings are enslaved to a mental system of inhuman governmental control. Sins have become crimes. Crime is big business for all involved, including court systems and prisons and private industry that serves these institutions. Prison jumpsuits costs tax based coin, after all. Watch out you might be growing a plant that either the mob or the elite few find questionable. Tyranny by mob rule is just as bad as the tyranny of the elite few.

"Lieutenant General William Wilson "Buffalo Bill" Quinn (November 1, 1907 – September 11, 2000) was a United States Army officer, who served in intelligence during World War II. Born in Crisfield, Somerset, Maryland and a 1933 graduate of West Point, Quinn retired as a lieutenant general on March 1, 1966 as the commanding general of the Seventh United States Army. He died in Washington, DC at Walter Reed Army Hospital at 92 years old."

"From 1933–1935 at Fort McKinley Quinn was the commanding officer of Company L. 1935–1936 General Quinn was assigned to Company D and then from 1936–1938 assigned to the Headquarters Company of the 31st Infantry. In 1940 he was the Command of Headquarters Company of the 4th Infantry Division, and the Commanding Officers of Company D, 8th Infantry Division. In July 1942 he became the United States Chief of Staff of the G-2 IV Army Corps. In 1949 Quinn was the Commanding Officer of the Far East 3rd Battalion, 34th Infantry Division. In April 1949 he became Chief of the Training Sub-section, I Corps. In January 1950 he became the Assistant Chief of Staff of the G-3 I Corps from February to March. In January 1951, Quinn was the Commanding Officer of the 17th Infantry, 7th Division in Korea. In 1952 Quinn became the Deputy Chief of Staff of the Pentagon and Deputy Chief of Staff for Planning Coordination of the Office of Chief of Staff, and then eventually became the Chief of Staff of the Pentagon. In 1953 Quinn was transferred to Greece and to be the Head of the Army Section, Joint Military Aid Group to Greece. In January 1957 he was the Commanding Officer of the 4th Infantry Division of the Strategic Army Corps at Fort Lewis. In July 1958 he became the Deputy Chief of Staff for the G-2 Intelligence of the United States Army. From 1959–1961, Quinn served as the Army's Chief of Information, and in 1959 he became the Chief of Public Information of the Department of the Army. In 1961 Quinn became the Deputy Director of the Defence Intelligence Agency and promoted to Lieutenant General. From 1964–1966, Quinn was the Commanding General of the United States Army Europe and Seventh United States Army, commonly referred to as 7th Army, in Stuttgart-Vaihingen, Germany. On March 1, 1966 Quinn retired but became Honorary Colonel of the 17th Infantry, The Buffalos. He was chief of operations of the CIA."

"Quinn participated in the Battle of the BulgeOperation Dragoon and on January 1, 1945 he was part of Operation Northwind."

"Quinn was in Korea from 1951 to 1952 and in August 1951 Quinn was wounded in Korea. While in Korea he won and was awarded the Silver Star, Legion of Merit and the Bronze Star with the "V" Device. He was also in the Battle of Inchon. While he was in Korea he was the commanding Officer of the 17th Infantry Regiment which was part of the 7th Infantry Division (the 17th Infantry was, and still is, nicknamed "the Buffalo's")."

Bohemian Spidermen From Mars Don't Need No Women

"Bohemian Grove is a 2,700-acre (1,100 ha) campground located at 20601 Bohemian Avenue, in Monte Rio, California, belonging to a private San Francisco-based men's art club known as the Bohemian Club. In mid-July each year, Bohemian Grove hosts a two-week, three-weekend encampment of some of the most prominent men in the world"

"The Club motto is "Weaving Spiders Come Not Here", which implies that outside concerns and business deals (networking) are to be left outside. When gathered in groups, Bohemians usually adhere to the injunction, although discussion of business often occurs between pairs of members. Important political and business deals have been developed at the Grove. The Grove is particularly famous for a Manhattan Project planning meeting that took place there in September 1942, which subsequently led to the atomic bomb. Those attending this meeting included Ernest Lawrence, U.C. Berkeley colleague J. Robert Oppenheimer, and various military officials. The S-1 Executive Committee heads, such as the presidents of Harvard, Yale, and Princeton along with representatives of Standard Oil and General Electric. At the time, Oppenheimer was not an S-1 member, although Lawrence and Oppenheimer hosted the meeting. Grove members take particular pride in this event and often relate the story to new attendees. However, other behavior at this famous campground has led to numerous exaggerations and parody in popular culture. One such documented example was former president, Richard Nixon's comments from a May 13, 1971 recording that: "The Bohemian Grove (an elite, secrecy-filled gathering outside San Francisco), which I attend from time to time. It is the most faggy goddamned thing you could ever imagine..." "

"The Bohemian Club's all-male membership and guest list includes artists, particularly musicians, as well as many prominent business leaders, government officials, including former U.S. presidents, senior media executives, and people of power. Members may invite guests to the Grove. Guests may be invited to the Grove for either the "Spring Jinks" in June or the main July encampment. Bohemian Club members can schedule private day-use events at the Grove any time it is not being used for Club-wide purposes, and they are allowed at these times to bring spouses, family, and friends, although female and minor guests must be off the property by 9 or 10 p.m. (21:00 or 22:00 local time). After 40 years of membership, the men earn "Old Guard" status, giving them reserved seating at the Grove's daily talks, as well as other perquisites. Former U.S. president Herbert Hoover was inducted into the Old Guard on March 19, 1953; he had joined the club exactly 40 years previously. Redwood branches from the Grove were flown to the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City, where they were used to decorate a banquet room for the celebration. In his acceptance speech, Hoover compared the honor of the "Old Guard" status to his frequent role as veteran counselor to later presidents."

"The tradition of a summer encampment was established six years after the Bohemian Club was formed in 1872 Henry "Harry" Edwards, a stage actor and founding member, announced that he was relocating to New York City to further his career. On June 29, 1878, somewhat fewer than 100 Bohemians gathered in the Redwoods in Marin County near Taylorville (present-day Samuel P. Taylor State Park) for an evening sendoff party in Edwards' honor.  Freely flowing liquor and some Japanese lanterns put a glow on the festivities, and club members retired at a late hour to the modest comfort of blankets laid on the dense mat of Redwood needles. This festive gathering was repeated the next year without Edwards, and became the club's yearly encampment."

CIA = Live Action Role Playing Banker Bull Shit Artists

This is speculative but I think that the CIA and/or similar such governmental agencies recruit young people. I think college campuses make for good places for clandestine recruiting. Perhaps even families become part of the operation in this manner. National Security clearance law and non disclosure contractual obligations explain how such things can be kept quiet. Besides that, most people aren't going to believe that the local barber might just be more than he seems. I joke of course, but I do think such speculation valid. I don't think such a program would be about spying on the public, keeping tabs on us or anything paranoid like that. I think if anything, such covert operatives would be employed to reinforce official News and governmental fiction as fact. These agents would be the human resource pool of controlled 'protest' leaders, possible victims and political patsies, supposed assassins and so on. Crisis role playing actors might be life time security clearance and governmentally contracted gigs. You might even have contact with such people.  Witness protection style relocation programs would explain what happens to real people who play simulated victim. This could explain why some people claim to know someone who knows someone who was a victim of what would seem to be an impossible event, like say 9/11/2001.

Perhaps the idea of the sleeper cell has more to do with having assets in place to reinforce propaganda narrative with old fashioned word of mouth bullshit. What I am describing may or may not sound reasonable to you. Please keep in mind that none of what I have described is either impossible or outside of the realm of human nature. Government clearly has the means, motive and opportunity to implement such a long standing scheme. Each new war and existential threat only ends up giving more top secret Patriot Act like power to government. We can see how staring with World War One, the modern age of the Military Industrial Entertainment Complex™ was begun. It should come as no surprise that it is all an international banker, managerial class backed, commercial enterprise.

Wikileaks and people like Donald Rumsfeld, congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, Edward Snowden and all the rest, are part of the scripted show folks!

Espionage is not what we are sold it is. The CIA is more about art and less about real violence. High level Washington D.C. politicians are true political actors in every sense of the word. Scripted crisis of all types are used to justify growing ever more expansive government. Unverifiable claims of all sorts of horrifying crimes being committed against women and children on the part of officially government sponsored business is part of the mythic fabric of terror based culture. Wikileaks reads like tabloid yellow journal fiction to me. Edward Snowden comes across as an obvious phony, he seems to know a little bit about too many things to take him seriously if logical compartmentalized governmental procedure is to be believed. Tales of child molesting sex trade rings and governmental military pizza parties never seem to go out of style. It's the same old song and dance over and over and somehow nobody really important ever gets caught or in trouble; a few scapegoats get hung out to dry and the real source of the problem, if such claims have any validity, continues to grow and fester. It seems obvious that governmental power would be the real problem. Who else has resource to move massive amounts of humans about the globe?  Whether the source is official U.S. military or contracted mercenary, does it really matter? Government contracted corporations would have to have security clearances that might (basically) put them beyond the reach of the law altogether. Government works for corporate interests which might explain the revolving door of employment for people like Mr. Rumsfeld. Inhuman government is the real crime. If there is any truth to rumors of government sponsored corruption of youth, I'd imagine it has to more to do with the art of gaining new governmental, security clearance given and non disclosure contracted, live action, life long, role playing, recruits.

"Are you an aspiring filmmaker who wants to produce a spy thriller? Well, you're in luck because the CIA has a pile of script ideas lying around. Ironic, you say, that an organization known for secrecy is doling out helpful hints to Hollywood? The CIA doesn’t think so. For them it’s all about image control. And they're just the start of it. The Department of Defense and just about every branch of the military has an entertainment industry liaison similar to the CIA's.

If you want to make a war film and need a fleet of F-22s, a crowd of Marines, or a Navy aircraft carrier, just call up the Department of Defense’s entertainment media office and they'll tell you if the Army can spare that M1A1 Abrams tankyou've always wanted for a day or two of filming.

"The scripts we get are only the writer's idea of how the Department of Defense operates," Vince Ogilvie, deputy director of the Defense Department's entertainment liaison office, told Danger Room. "We make sure the Department and facilities and people are portrayed in the most accurate and positive light possible."

Hollywood has been working with government organizations to make more credible films for years (for instance, Jerry Bruckheimer and Paramount Pictures worked closely with the Pentagon when filming the 1986 blockbuster "Top Gun"). But the phenomenon is under newfound scrutiny. There was a bit of a kerfuffle recently when some in the press and in Congress speculated about whether the government will give Sony Pictures any pointers while they make a film about the killing of Osama bin Laden."

"Operation Mockingbird was allegedly a large-scale program of the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) that began in the early 1950s and attempted to manipulate news media for propaganda purposes. It funded student and cultural organizations and magazines as front organizations.

According to writer Deborah Davis, Mockingbird recruited leading American journalists into a propaganda network and oversaw the operations of front groups. CIA support of front groups was exposed after a 1967 Ramparts magazine article reported that the National Student Association received funding from the CIA. In the 1970s Congressional investigations and reports also revealed Agency connections with journalists and civic groups. None of these reports, however, mentions an Operation Mockingbird controlling or supporting these activities.

A Project Mockingbird is mentioned in the CIA Family Jewels report, compiled in the mid-70s. According to the declassified version of the report released in 2007, Project Mockingbird involved wire-tapping of two American journalists for several months in the early 1960s."

Intelligence Reform in the Mid-1970s — Central Intelligence Agency

Say, ever notice how the mainstream media loves to push Hitler on us?

They have been doing it for years. The guy got and still gets, more free press than the Kardashians do. Hitler is as much part of the fabric of our culture as Mickey Mouse.

Oh Boy, Will The Truth Will Bend You Over. Hitler Is A Role Cast & Recast, Over & Over.

A National Lampooning Tongue & Cheek Style, Post Script: What if Hitler Was Just a Role Playing, Newsreel Crisis Actor?

Oh wait, it does look like he was just a banker's pawn and public mascot for a bogeyman side show. Hitler, like 9/11, is the propaganda gift that keeps on giving.

"The National Lampoon rose like a rocket: Launched during the late Vietnam years, it climbed through the drug-addled countercultural haze of the early 1970s to orbit an American scene desperately in need of a laugh. If the magazine had a point of view, it was that everybody and everything was fair game: raving, right-wing lunatics, tie-dyed peaceniks, tedious noodniks; all were offended by their stick-in-your-eye style of humor.

This irreverence seemed to work. Within months of the first issue, in April, 1970, the Lampoon caught fire (and not from the box of sweating dynamite an admirer once mailed to the an editor). It blazed like a comet for a decade, spinning off innumerable special projects, books, magazines, theater pieces, films, television shows, and eventually—writers and artists. The mainstays of the magazine moved on, finding their way to other mediums. Over time, the Lampoon pedigree faded from their resumes, and the magazine, like some of the contributors, returned to earth.

DRUNK STONED BRILLIANT DEAD resurrects these contributors and reveals who among the living and the dead were the funniest and most brilliant. It tells the story, using their own hilarious words and art, of the writers and artists who made the National Lampoon, America’s only national humor magazine, so outrageously, unbelievably funny."

"When three Harvard Lampoon alumni, Douglas Kenney, Henry Beard, and Robert Hoffman, joined forces in 1970, along with a critical mass of talented writers and artists, a humor magazine was born.The magazine’s irreverent, often shocking, sensibility would influence American humor for decades to come. Beard once described it like this: “There was this big door that said, ‘Thou shalt not.’ We touched it, and it fell off its hinges.” "

COVER: The colorful personage featured on our cover is not stuffed or made of wax, but very much alive. His name is Loro, which is Spanich for parrot and, in Chile, means a bedpan. Photographer Leonard Soned, who is responsible for this portrait, imported Loro from mexico four yeaars ago, and his since taught it to roll over on its back to have its stomach scratched, and to survive daily lofe in a busy new York photo studio. On its own, it has learned to say ‘I’ll get it!’ when the phone rings and the opening bars of two Beatles songs."

Meet John Miller: Terrorist Hunting Super Journalist/ FBI & Police Expert Kind of Guy:

"Donald Trump admitted to using aliases in the past during an interview on Wednesday with late-night talkshow host Jimmy Kimmel.

Less than two weeks after denying that he ever pretended to be a publicist named John Miller or John Barron in promoting his business affairs with reporters, Trump admitted on Wednesday that “over the years I have used aliases”. He added “I used the name Barron” and explained that was the inspiration for the name of his youngest son, Barron Trump.

The presumptive Republican nominee had previously admitted under oath to using aliases and was infamous for doing so among New York reporters in the 1980s.

However, Trump denied he had done so earlier this month after audio emerged several weeks ago of Trump posing as “John Miller” in a 1991 interview with a reporter for People magazine."

No. Not that John Miller, this one:

John Miller, News Journalist, Government Asset & True Terrorist

A Tale Of Revolving Doors, Banking Families, Police Commissioners, Pseudonyms and Super Spies

"John Miller (born 1958 or 1959) is the Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence & Counter-terrorism of the NYPD. He is the former Associate Deputy Director of National Intelligence for Analytic Transformation and Technology. Prior to that, he was an Assistant Director of Public Affairs for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), where he was the bureau's national spokesman. Miller is also a former ABC News reporter and anchorman, perhaps best known for conducting a May 1998 interview with Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan. 

John Miller was named a senior correspondent for CBS News on October 17, 2011. In this capacity, Miller reported for all CBS News platforms and broadcasts, including "CBS This Morning" and occasionally for "60 Minutes." "

"Miller is the son of Lucinda Miller of Manhattan and the late John J. Miller, a syndicated columnist and freelance writer whose range of roles included Hollywood gossip columnist, foreign correspondent, Broadway critic, crime investigator, and political pundit

"My dad wrote seven columns under six different names... Antonio from Rome. Pierre from Paris. Nigel from London," Miller has said. His father was also a close friend of Luciano crime family boss Frank Costello, whose wife, Lauretta, was Miller's godmother.

In 2002, Miller married Emily Helen Altschul, daughter of banking mogul and Goldman Sachs Group partner Arthur Goodhart Altschul[6] and member of the Lehman family. Miller's brother-in-law, Arthur Altschul, Jr., worked for Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley before becoming chairman of Medicis Pharmaceuticals Corporation."

"Miller began work as a journalist in 1983 for WNEW, a local New York City television station. From 1985 to 1994, he worked as an investigative journalist for WNBC, another local New York television station.

From 1994 to 1995, he served as deputy police commissioner of New York City, where he was the chief spokesman for the NYPD,  a move that some of his colleagues considered "going over to the dark side." He was hired at the request of then Commissioner William Bratton. 

Miller then worked as an ABC News correspondent from 1995 until January 2002, when he took the post of co-anchor with Barbara Waltersof the ABC News program, 20/20. During his tenure at ABC, Miller is also recognized for covering the September 11, 2001 attacks, where he sat alongside Peter Jennings for the duration of the day listening in to radio conversations from the FBI, FDNY and NYPD, informing Jennings and viewers of their content.

In January 2003, he left ABC News to rejoin Bratton who by then was at the Los Angeles Police Department. Miller served as the police department's Bureau Chief for the Counter-Terrorism and Criminal Intelligence Bureau,[9] which included the Major Crimes Division, and the Emergency Services Division and the Special Investigations Section (SIS). While there, Miller launched Project Archangel which included the Automated Critical Asset Management System (ACAMS),[10] among other platforms, and which has been adopted by other cities and states for ongoing risk-assessment of potential terrorist targets. Miller was also one of the original designers of the Los Angeles Joint Regional Intelligence Center (JRIC), which combines intelligence and analysis for the LAPD, LA Sheriff, and the FBI.

In September 2005, Miller became the Assistant Director for Public Affairs at the FBI in Washington, D.C.. In this position, he was tasked with overseeing the FBI's internal and external communications, including relations with the news media and handling of fugitive publicity, community relations, and other communications support. Miller also established an Employee Communications Unit to build stronger internal communications to the bureau's 31,000 employees. Among his collateral duties was to serve on the Strategic Execution Team (SET) to establish performance measurement standards for intelligence operations across the FBI's 56 field offices. The system, adapted from the CompStat process used by major police departments, is overseen by FBI Director Robert Mueller."
