As I go through this topic again I never realized that Byron Waters was the dean of USC Law School, where he might have met Parrott for the first time.

Have you seen that play called "Water and Power" And if you have what did you think about that character called "The Fixer"?

How do you compare Parrott with legendary "fixers" like Ryochi Sassakawa or Arnold Rothstein, Mischler or AK himself?

KKP was reliant upon a system for the continuation of his power. Once the political apparatus was shaken up in the late 30s his influence declined greatly. Both KKP and Rothstein as political influences were strong regionally but very limited on a national scale and non-existent internationally. Ryochi Sassakawa and Khashogghi's influence extended beyond national borders and in the case of Khashogghi this continues to be the case to this day. As with Mischer he remained a key figure internationally until his death through his ties with the heads of state and commerce.

The rise and promotion of Texas based corporations under the guise of multi-national corporations in government circles via the Texas political mafia helped to keep Mischer near the pinnicle of power to the very end.

All right all right, it took awhile for it to sink in. The City Hall boys used the Black Handers to do their bidding just like The Moodys used the Maceos or The Rothschilds / Bronfmanns used the New York underworld via Arnold Rothstein.

Was Marco Albori originally a Black Hander?

Hehehe I never realized that their was maybe a connection between Mischer and The Maceos / Fertittas. After all you`re talking about corporations.....Landry`s among others.

Precisely the city hall gang identified and sanctioned which groups and individuals were allowed to participate in gambling,prostitution, narcotics and bootleg liquor. Los Angeles more so than any other city successfully managed to Segregate the rackets by clamping down or eliminating any figure who dared to challenge the system. Farmer Page, Marco Albori and Dominic DiCiolla are prime examples of this. Page and Tony Cornero are two rare examples of people who were unsuccessful in bucking the power brokers but after a stern rebuke were allowed to regain their stature in the machine.

Labor wasn't associated with the black hand in the same manner as the Matrangas, DiCiollas or Dragnas were but he hired a number of them to do his bidding.

Swing worked in conjunction with members of the City Hall gang at various times but Swing and his uncle Robert Garner Sr., were powers all to themselves. An example of their influence can be found in the tutelage of young Lyndon Johnson. The Johnson-Swing Act., was key in paving the way for the construction of the Hoover dam which in turn converted hundreds of thousands of acres of worthless desert land into a huge fortune not only for the Garner-Swing family but also for the Chandler and Hearst families as well. And so it was that Johnson's mentor Alvin Wirtz thought so highly of Swing's knowledge of water politics that he sent his minion west. Johnson had a cousin who worked in the Swing brothers Platt Building office. Initially the future President was given a job running the elevator and later received tutelage in the art of lobbying. With so little written on the Senator it is understandable that his influence and importance would be missed, but if you look at the rise of Artie Samish, the National Orange show, the California liquor laws, the institution of laws governing racing at the California horse tracks and the adoption of off-track wagering, the establishment of Roxies in Las Vegas and the completion of the Stardust hotel and casino complex following the death of Tony Cornero, you will find Senator Swings imprint...

What do you mean B? I loved Imperial San Francisco. I only wish they had delved into the activities of the Nim family and the rise of Wong Nim as a defacto Triad overlord in California.

Well you did say that these greengrocers were connected to UFC......how about Albori? Could he done all that he did without sponsorship by the ultraweathy? "Imperial SF" actually sounds a lot like you for that matter. Good work J!

I`ve noticed you`ve kept the wraps on the Albori area. hmmmm
