A comment recently posted on another Forum has been brought to our attention concerning the practice of this Blog in seeming to 'jump' from one topic to another (in the immediate instance it was in reference to rail and port issues.)
Please note that this seemingly disconnected approach is intentional. It is used in order not to take one topic too far forward of a current theme, and at some point all temporarily halted topics will be continued within the time frame, and thus joined up to complete a unified story.
Eventually the contents of this Blog will be converted into an episodic book format within chapters. Similarly, an academic book format will be used to assemble all of the previously published data into a text book format.
The Blog coverage provides an overview of 'content within context' of researched information which is related to our series of academic monologues at http://foundthreads.com
A blog format allows for the wide canvass of information relating to a theme within past events to be re-examined in microscopic detail. Consequently this Blog does not read like a book, nor do the articles necessarily continue from one day to the next day's entry, although they may do so. They often begin, and then halt while other issues are addressed and brought up to that same point in time.
This work of public education in the public interest in Blog and monologue format is provided at no charge to the public. The authors have no political, religious or commercial objective governing their research.
The governing theme behind this research project is that of individualism versus collectivism. It is based upon the fact that all human beings are temporal, and none have Supreme Insight into the purpose of human life itself, and therefore no human being has a legitimate claim to acting for or on behalf of any Originating Force responsible for all existence.
Today's continuing Blog entry [Sabotage from Dundalk, part 4 and a part 4 [Extra]], have been posted, and so this is a bonus that we had to include because it is what happens to liars when they refuse to admit the truth and continue to lie. They simply post this kind of nonsense:
"Posted by Paul Rusling on July 21, 2020, 9:56 pm, in reply to "Re: Freedom of speech - Its not only freedom of speech that important, its being free of those who try to stop it, and who lie so openly. I don't understand why some odd-bods would want to remove things from history, and add their own irrelevant smokescreen to the story. Is it for some self grandeoisment?
And why others should continue entertaining those 'history muddiers and modifiers' is quite beyond me. I find it best to steer clear of them.
Life seems to be a long lesson, with every person I ask offering their own variation of the story. Most are just mildly off the track, some seem to make stuff up, and then there is the old fool who wants to rewrite the whole tale (and remove the key man!).
The reason for putting assets into foreign trusts is to prevent the veil of incorporation being lifted. Its not cheap setting up anstalts, etc, and using them to trade, but sometimes its necessary to do so. Idle and vexatious fingers ferreting around are then little more than a nuisance. Those who ran the money out to them and administered other bits of the operation are dismayed there should be attempts to unravel the carefully constructed networks and to besmirch people who helped develop our radio and free it from the tyranny of the state. Its bemusing to ponder what the motive could be for such nastiness and a waste of time.
The Radio Caroline bible simply collects the various stories together, sieves out those that fit together and relates them in a coherent manner, without the boring and irrelevant clap-trap. I'm so grateful to the guys and the ladies who I persuaded to share their memories and pictures."
There is the reaffirmation of what Paul Rusling told us in person: Now he has restated it for all to read, and so we wanted to share it with you.
Rusling has no time and no interest in research.
What Rusling now tries to defend is the mythology that he has cobbled together under the audacious claim of being a "bible", but it just won't stand up to examination for accuracy. So Rusling responds by castigating all investigative journalists, and all educational researchers who try to uncover a true account of the past versus political; religious, and commercial propaganda.
To those who find value in educational research, it is not as Rusling claims: "irrelevant clap-trap". but his "bible" that, he writes: "simply collects the various stories together, sieves out those that fit together and relates them in a coherent manner ...." comes straight out of the Nazi text book of Joseph Goebbels, and the dictatorship manuals of Joseph Stalin; Chairman Mao and a host of other jumped-up idiots who start both wars and create extermination camps for those they hate.
Somewhere along the line, even the most brainwashed of anorak trolls must soon realize that people like Rusling have played them for fools and taken money from them under false pretenses. Or are these cult-like followers so afraid of the truth that they do not see or read the daily exposure of people like Rusling, as nothing more than empty self-serving frauds?
The story of the rail lines and the related ferry service that once connected Greenore to the rest of Ireland and then the outside world, is far from straightforward.
Because our own interest in these rail lines in peripheral to the overall subject matter of this Blog, we have turned to others who specialize in such information for our own enlightenment. One such site is John Speller's Web Pages about the Irish Railways. See:
The story of behind the rail and ferry services centered on Greenore, began in 1867 with the London and North Western Railway (LNWR) which operated a rail-head at Holyhead in Anglesea, with rail links across the island of Great Britain, selecting the fishing port of Greenore to build a new harbor; a pier; a modern hotel, and a railway station terminal and railway line that connected to the town of Newry to the north of Greenore. Adjacent to the rail-head the company also built a modern hotel, and in the surrounding area, it encouraged the start of a small town with street names such as Anglesea Terrace and Euston Street; together with another area devoted to extensive cattle pens.
Three years later in 1873 a ten mile stretch of track was opened to link Greenore with Dundalk to its south-west. When the majority of the island of Ireland gained independence in 1922, the LNWR was swallowed up by a new London, Midland and Scottish Railway (LMS) company. In 1927, with the ports of Belfast and Dublin having direct access to large population centers, the passenger ferry service to Greenore, was withdrawn. In 1933, LMS signed an agreement with the Great Northern Railway (Ireland) company, (GNRI) to manage its affairs in the Republic of Ireland.
GNRI became an international oddity, because this one railway company had a cross-border service linking both the Republic of Ireland with its Irish rump designated as Northern Ireland. While the majority of the island was controlled by a legislature in Dublin, the rest of the island was still under the control of the British Crown corporation sole based in London, England.
Then came World War II and the Republic of Ireland decided to remain neutral. The Greenore passenger ferry service had already stopped back in 1927, and now all freight shipments by sea from Greenore were reduced in 1940 to once a week.
Because all of the GNRI locomotives were still being serviced in Dundalk at its Locomotive Works, that facility was governed by a cross-border consortium of business interests.
"For almost eight decades the destinies of the Works and the Town were inextricably interwoven, and both became sources of sources of mutual sustenance, as the Works provided the core for the town's prosperity."
"It was the amalgamation in 1876 of .... four railways, that formed the Great Northern Railway formally linking Dublin and Belfast by iron road. The enlarged network demanded more extensive workshops located in a central position for the building and maintenance of its rolling stock and locomotives."
The quotations above have come from a feature on pages 24-25 of The Argus, and dated February 5, 1993. The original source material is based upon a book about GNR by Jack McQuillan.
Due to increased competition from road and air transport between the two Irish nations, in 1947, GNR introduced a non-stop service between Dublin and Belfast, but it was not profitable. The following year on January 1, 1948, the Great Western Railway (GWR); London, Midland & Scottish Railway (LMS); London & North Eastern Railway (LNER), and Southern Railway (SR), were all swallowed up in a post-WWII act of socialized nationalization of rail and road transportation governed by the British Crown via its Parliament in London, and consequently the formation of British Railways absorbed the LMS-GNRI contract.
In 1951, the Northern Ireland interests of British Railways in the Dundalk Locomotive Works were terminated almost over night, and almost immediately 1,200 employees at the Dundee Locomotive Works were given one week's notice before their jobs vanished.
Meanwhile, in 1951 over in Greenore, the trains stopped running and its once-a-week cargo shipments were also brought to an end. Remember, the passenger ferry service ended in 1940, and so the entire property of the railway company at Greenore was allowed to fall into a state of disrepair. Sitting on a peninsula, Greenore was not a part of any major population center, and therefore it did not retain any commercial value for business interests.
Back in Dundalk a political storm erupted, and both Irish governments agreed to subsidize the Dundalk Locomotive Works which at that time was still a private company. But by the end of 1952, with the company drowning in debt, the two governments agreed to create the Great Northern Railway Board (GNRB) and take over the remaining assets and debts of the former private company.
"It was to prove sadly only a brief period of euphoria .... 'Into that magic burst reality' .... With the soaring costs, dwindling revenues and the divergent transport policies of both governments, the agreement toward the end of the decade became a 'misalliance of incompatibles'. a unique economic and political cocktail that was fermenting into an imbroglio ...." which is defined as an "extremely confused, complicated, or embarrassing situation".
So in 1958 the GNRB was also killed-off and its assets were then divided between Northern Ireland's Ulster Transport Authority and Eire's Córas Iompar Éireann. Although these two bodies had already terminated most of the rail services of the former GNRI network; they did not close the Dublin to Belfast line.
That is when the Irish government helped to establish Dundalk Engineering Works and other companies which included Heinkel Cabin Scooters Ltd.
But even this remedy was not to last.
To find out what happened next, please check in tomorrow!
In 1960, George Saunders has stated that he began his first job with the Marconi company in Chelmsford, just after leaving school. George does not seem to have told anyone a lot of very specific information about himself. Possibly that is our fault and the fault of others who have interviewed him over the years. But until recently this did not seem to be a matter of any great interest.
It is now!
Along with Howard Spencer, who we have mentioned before and shall do so again very shortly, George Saunders helps us to narrow-down a timeline of events, which no one else appears to have even attempted to do, because the significance of such a timeline did not dawn on them and until very recently, it did now dawn on us, either.
First of all we would like to know the actual date when he began his employment with Marconi. Then we would like to know the actual date when he first met John Howard Gilman in a pub at Chelmsford, Essex. After that, we would like to know when he actually gave his notice to quit his job at Marconi, and finally, the actual date that when he first board the mv Mi Amigo to begin his employment when the ship was anchored off Essex and broadcasting under the name of Radio Atlanta.
Perhaps some of our readers can fill in these blanks for us?
What we have been able to deduce [see our blog entry for June 30], and based upon all of the evidence that is available to us from a variety of sources, including various recollections by George Saunders himself; we have concluded that he must have stepped off the train from Dublin and on to the Dundalk railway platform sometime after finishing work for the day at Marconi, and his weekend began.
If he left work for that week on a Friday evening, and then he immediately departed for Greenore via Dublin; then the date was probably March 13, 1964. Because sunset on that day was at 5:59 PM, and depending upon the actual time that he finished work, most of his journey would have been during darkness, meaning that it would have been a late start on such a journey that he had not undertaken before.
However, given that he had to go from Chelmsford, Essex to the airport (probably Heathrow), and then catch a flight to Dublin after which he had to go the Dublin railway station, and then catch a train bound for Belfast from which he was to alight at Dundalk; it is more likely that he arrived on the Dundalk railway platform at some time during the morning of Saturday, March 14, 1964.
It is therefore likely that George Saunders stayed at Greenore, until Sunday, March 15, 1964, and we add that note since George is a prudent man, and therefore it seems highly unlikely that he would have quit his job at Marconi, without first obtaining the guarantee of a new job. However, there is another caveat to consider, and that is before he got to Greenore and had a final interview with Alfred Nicholas Thomas on board the mv Mi Amigo docked at Greenore, he did not know for sure that he had the offer of a new job.
Therefore we will use the date of Saturday, March 14, 1964 as our baseline from which to build out a timeline which first reverses back in time, and then goes forwards to establish other dates in context. The only way that this dateline could be in error, is if some parts of George Saunders' related story are untrue; but since he has more-or-less told the same story consistently to several people without conflicting information, we have to accept the date of Saturday, March 14, 1964 as being our baseline.
Now while there certainly are gaps in the story as told by George Saunders, but there are no conflicting dates of which we are presently aware.
It may, or it may not be a matter of significance that George Saunders does not appear to have made any mention of this event, which received extensive worldwide coverage on both radio and television news bulletins. Because many people in Ireland had both a picture of the Pope and a picture of the slain President hanging on a wall in their homes, and many who were alive at the time remember exactly where they were and what they were doing when JFK was murdered in Dallas, Texas. Therefore, anything to do with his death was being noted and discussed in general conversation, especially in Ireland.
Although the guilty verdict handed down against Jack Ruby was later overturned on appeal, Ruby died of cancer before a new trial could take place. But if George had noted where he was when that verdict was handed down, then it would have enabled us to fix a date stamp upon his visit to Greenore. In case you are wondering whether George Saunders was remotely interested in the circumstances surrounding the death of John F. Kennedy, or what any of this has to do with the radio ship at Greenore that he was going to visit and perhaps get a new job, then you should consider the following information provided by George Saunders.
Several years ago, Chris Edwards interviewed George Saunders for Offshore Echos magazine, and this is part of the transcript that transpired:
Edwards: "Do you know much of the previous history of the Mi Amigo, it was certainly used on Radio Nord. Gordon McLendon had quite an involvement with it. There is the possibility it may have broadcast to Cuba."
Saunders: "Now I can tell you a bit about that. Something I came across, the CIA looked at it and this is when it was owned by the two Texas oil millionaires, Thompson and the other chap. What the CIA wanted it for, not as a radio ship at all, they wanted to launch small balloons, carrying propaganda into Cuba. This was the idea and somehow of course it didn’t happen. But I’ve come across the memo concerned in a book called Psychological Warfare on Cuba and it's a collection of documents as published a few years back."
We have also spoken repeatedly to George Saunders, and he prompted us to buy the book that he referred to and is illustrated above. The "collection of documents" mentioned by George Saunders are actually declassified Central Intelligence Agency documents that form the basis for the book. There is a reference in one of the documents to a CIA 'Operation Mongoose' meeting that was chaired by the brother of John F. Kennedy.
Robert F. Kennedy was wearing two hats. One of them was a visible and nepotistic post as Attorney General of the United States of America. His other hat was invisible to the hoi polloi. More about that 'other hat' in a moment.
The "Thompson" referred to by George Saunders, is one one a trio composed of Gordon McLendon; Clint Murchison Jr., and Robert F. Thompson. It was Thompson who had senior management control of the ship that was renamed Mi Amigo.
Thompson's own manager was Charles W. Weaver with whom we have had personal contact, and we still maintain contact to this day with both his widow and daughter.
Before Weaver died he wrote a series of manuscripts, and one of them which appears to have been influenced by a ghostwriter after Weaver's death, does not make a lot of sense. But earlier versions of his unpublished manuscripts - some of which we already have - tell an interesting story with some degree of verified credibility. We were about to receive the entire his file just prior to the Virus pandemic making travel difficult.
Part of the Bobby Kennedy plan called for Thompson to bring the Mi Amigo to Galveston island in the Gulf of Mexico where it would be stripped of all broadcasting equipment, and then outfitted with helium balloons. The balloons would be filled on deck with gas and then they would hoist attached propaganda packages high into the sky to be blown over Cuba. Once on station over Cuba, these packages would then be released.
Bobby Kennedy was actually running a secret faction of Central Intelligence Agency assets that were based on the southern campus of the University of Miami. His brother JFK, had promised the world that there would be no more invasions of Cuba by the USA. In one sense he sort-of told the truth, but in legal parlance he was lying through his teeth!
The mercenary army managed by Robert F. Kennedy, was headed by a Cuban ex-pat and his troops were shipped off shore to countries in Central America, although their banking was still controlled in Miami. So in one sense the USA was not performing any hostile acts via its own people, but indirectly it was financing and facilitating a huge anti-Castro operation.
Because of the start of the 'Cuban Missile Crisis' in September 1962, the Mi Amigo (still called Magda Maria at that time), could not leave European waters and cross the Atlantic Ocean because the U.S. Navy was blocking all sea lanes: including those leading to Galveston in the Gulf of Mexico. Mainly for that reason the larger mv Olga Patricia was used in its place. This same CIA ship was later brought to the UK as the home for two more offshore radio stations which were also financed by Texans: Radio England and Britain Radio.
On Saturday, March 14, 1964 as George Saunders got off the train at Dundalk, the mv Mi Amigo had secretly slipped out of port on Galveston island, just after the murders of both John F. Kennedy and Lee Harvey Oswald. Now it was tied-up at the waterfront of the disused railway terminus and ferry port at Greenore, located just across the water from the British rump nation called Northern Ireland.
Because the history of how that railway terminus fell into disuse and then came under the control of Ronan O'Rahilly's father, is a segment all by itself. That will be left for explanation until tomorrow's entry in this Blog.
[NOTE: This text was both revised and expanded in detail on July 22, 2020.]
We were just asked (again) on the Comments Forum, why this Blog is delving so far back in time and in so much detail, so this response for everyone to read has been injected into the regular blog entries. (The continuation of yesterday's Blog entry will appear here tomorrow).
"In answer to your question, you should go back and read the opening of the blog for 7/17/2020. It has been addressed several times.
The more specific that this Blog becomes the more obvious that the reason why the story of Radio Caroline has never been told, is because it has been addressed as an ENGLISH - meaning ENGLAND - story, which it is not.
It is first and foremost an IRISH story with a LOT of AMERICAN influences going all the way back into the history of the O'Rahilly family and bringing in the visit to Ireland in 1963 by JFK and his ASSASSINATION.
It is also about the AMERICAN broadcasting influences involving the ship that became known as Mi Amigo, and the HIDDEN geopolitical antics of Allan Crawford.
Now add to that the HIDDEN history of the United Kingdom and its tie to Constantine; the Roman Empire; Herbert W. Armstrong, etc., etc., and we have not even begun to address the untrue claim that there was no pop music on the British airwaves before Caroline.
The Beatles' claim to fame PRIOR to Caroline puts paid to that lie.
I know that some anorak writers have IRISH backgrounds, but they came into the story very, very late.
Then there are the writers with ENGLISH bias and ENGLISH writers with a total hate for educational material - such as Paul Alexander Rusling who has done more HARM to this true version of this story than anyone of late, and all of it so that he could line his own pockets with money at the expense of fools who bought his book believing it to be true.
We bought it because we buy every book on this subject! Everything we write and publish has been well researched and authenticated by peer review in many instances.
As it says on the masthead, this story is not about the 'Swinging Sixties' and similar nonsense. This is also NOT a book (to be) for anoraks. If they ever read it - they will be shocked into wetting their pants wondering how they could have been conned for so long.
That is not difficult. Most wars, including WWII began over misinformation and WWII began with a Nazi lie about a Polish radio station.
The Caroline lie is about unveiling the true story of IRISH OPPRESSION. You can talk about BLM, but BLM begins with the same source: that CROWN CORPORATION SOLE BASED IN LONDON that is built upon the lie about the 'Donation of Constantine'.
I hope that this answers your question as to why it is necessary to go back in time and explain it all in courtroom-style detail to shut up the trolls and the political schemers who control the BRITISH CROWN corporation sole.
And we have not YET begun on the Kennedy Assassination part or the involvement of the Mafia .... but we will."
It is fitting that the Rising of 1916 took place at the General Post Office in Dublin, because that is where Ireland's broadcasting service began.
It is also the name of the institution by which the Crown of England began censorship back in the year 1660. That is when General George Monck formally terminated the Republic on the island of Great Britain. The hoi polloi were forbidden to discuss what had taken place prior to 1660 under penalty spelled out in the 'Act of Oblivion'.
[See the video at: http://radiocaroline.info ].
General Monck facilitated the creation of two new monarchies under King Charles II who governed his newly separated kingdoms of England; Scotland and Ireland. In 1801, the puppet Parliament of Ireland followed the lead of the Parliament in Scotland which in 1707 abdicated control by turning over its own parliamentary powers to London, and so the Parliament in Ireland abolished itself.
In 1801 the Crown corporation sole based in London, pronounced the commencement of the United Kingdom of (the island of) Great Britain (England plus Wales; with Scotland), and (the island of) Ireland under the 'Act of Union' which was rubber-stamped by the puppet Parliament in London, England.
In fairly recent times Egan John Eoin O'Sullivan O'Rahilly who renamed himself as Aodogán, and is the father of Ronan O'Rahilly, has been embellishing the name of a journalist who went under the byline of 'The O'Rahilly', so that someone might conclude that he was one of the main leaders of the 1916 Rising announced at the headquarters of the General Post Office in Dublin, Ireland. But there above (left), is a copy of that Proclamation, and those are the names of the leaders printed underneath. There is no mention of Michael Joseph Rahilly who later called himself "Rathaile" and "Ua Rathaille" and "The O'Rahilly", but which is not to suggest that he was not one of the leaders of the Rising.
However, there has been a singling-out of Michael Joseph Rahilly to the point where his actual life and times have now begun to be submerged in a new kind of mythology. Well, now we can understand what was going on in Ronan O'Rahilly's head!
It turns out Ronan's fondness for stealing bits and pieces from the lives of other people was somewhat of a tradition with his grandfather, "The O'Rahilly". We hope that the trolls who are so opposed to us exposing the truth about Ronan O'Rahilly are paying attention!
Anyway, before Michael Joseph Rahilly decided to become a journalist for a Gaelic newspaper and call himself "The O'Rahilly", and before William Butler Yeats decided to pen a poem about Michael Joseph Rahilly and publish it in the year 1938, there was a doppleganger lurking in the grave for Michael Joseph Rahilly to copy, which no doubt is how his grandson Ronan then got the same idea!
Thanks to 'A Commentary on the Autobiographies of W.B. Yeats', by Gretchen L. Schwenker who published her thesis for a PhD Degree from the University of Stirling in October 1980, we learn the following on page 257 and reference p.217 :
"O'Rahilly - Egan O'Rahilly or Aodhagan 6 Rathaille (1670-c. 1726). A Gaelic poet, O'Rahilly was born in Sliabh Luacra, near Killarney, County Kerry. He may have studied at Killarney in a school which was both classical and Gaelic. O'Rahilly was known for his laments about the demise of the Gaelic order. He was equally famous for his satires on the new planters. Pädraig Ua Duinnin edited O'Rahilly's poetry for the Irish Texts Society (London, 1900). The poet is buried in Muckross Abbey, outside Killarney." (See: https://dspace.stir.ac.uk/bitstream/1893/12291/1/Schwenker-thesis-vol1.pdf )
Not the anorak trolls, so it seems, and certainly not Paul Alexander Rusling who couldn't even get Yeats' name right.
On page 39 of his "Bible", this sloppy plagiarist noted that: "Keats wrote a poem about him, The O'Rahilly." But then Rusling also attributed actions by John Howard Gilman to Alfred Nicholas Thomas, and insisted on telling his readers that Charles Edward Ross was known as "Jimmy Ross" in order to support the tired-old myth that a "Jimmy Ross" had financed Radio Caroline. Worse still, the present-day aging anorak community is still promoting Rusling's rubbish which is enabling him to still sell his book of fiction to gullible fools.
All Rusling had to do was turn to Mark Humphrys' Online collection of wonderfully documented and illustrated authentic genealogy to learn more about Aodhagán Ó Rathaille. He is hailed as the father of the aisling poets, which is a political form of dream-like writing that employs a quasi-human female form to tell its story. Aodhagán Ó Rathaille "came to manhood as the Jacobite cause was defeated at the Boyne, Aughrim and Limerick, and wandered through Munster visiting the homes of the last of the Gaelic chiefs, lamenting the decay of the old order". See Mark Humphrys' genealogy at: https://humphrysfamilytree.com/ORahilly/poet.html
Now let us zip down to 1938, and review exactly what William Butler Yeats (not Keats), had to say in poetic form about Ronan's grandfather. He is the person who plagarized his ancestor, or it could be said, draped himself in that person's garb in order to carry on the Gaelic fight against the English:
SING of the O'Rahilly,
Do not deny his right;
Sing a 'the' before his name;
Allow that he, despite
All those learned historians,
Established it for good;
He wrote out that word himself,
He christened himself with blood.
How goes the weather?
Sing of the O'Rahilly
That had such little sense
He told Pearse and Connolly
He'd gone to great expense
Keeping all the Kerry men
Out of that crazy fight;
That he might be there himself
Had travelled half the night.
How goes the weather?
'Am I such a craven that
I should not get the word
But for what some travelling man
Had heard I had not heard?'
Then on Pearse and Connolly
He fixed a bitter look:
'Because I helped to wind the clock
I come to hear it strike.'
How goes the weather?
What remains to sing about
But of the death he met
Stretched under a doorway
Somewhere off Henry Street;
They that found him found upon
The door above his head
'Here died the O'Rahilly.
R.I.P.' writ in blood.
How goes the weather?
When young George Saunders who had but a handful of years working for Marconi under his belt that included his latest boring assignment of technical writer, stepped off a train from Dublin at Dundalk station; little did he know that he had stepped into a community that hated everything that his birth place represented.
He was met by John Howard Gilman, an old hand at political intrigue who was many years the senior of George. Gilman was taking George to his final, and George later recalled it as his most thorough interview, by another old-timer named Alfred Nicholas Thomas who had already been involved in a string of failed offshore radio ventures.
The venue for this interview was at Greenore, which was later described by George as one the creepiest places he had ever visited.
More about George and his experiences, tomorrow.
Now that you know how the Crown corporation sole based in London, England, got control of the island of Ireland, and then pronounced it to be a separate kingdom under its control, and then joined that Kingdom of Ireland to the United Kingdom of Great Britain, only to be followed by several rounds of civil war attempting liberation; we come to that moment in 1964 when former Marconi engineer George Saunders arrived at Dundalk railway station. Both George Saunders and John Howard Gilman who met him off the train, are Englishmen, and for many Irish people they represented the oppressor nation of occupation.
Their destination by car and over winding roads, was to the almost deserted and disused railway station and its hotel at Greenore, which is situated on the banks of the Carlingford Lough whose waters are divided in two between the Republic and Northern Ireland. John Howard Gilman was many years senior to George Saunders, and aside from his longevity of employment by the British Broadcasting Corporation, he also had an adventuresome back story that involved shutting down the last super-power transmitter used by Nazi Germany to broadcast the propaganda messages of 'Lord Haw Haw' (William Joyce) who was an Irish-American executed at the end of WWII by the British Crown.
In early 1964, Gilman and Saunders were on the same Irish soil where Gordon McLendon; Charles Michelson, and Charles Orr Stanley had recently been attempting to persuade the Irish government to award them with a contract to build a commercial television system, and an international commercial radio station. They were not successful.
These three powerful advocates of commercial radio broadcasting had been up against the same forces behind the creation of Radio Eireann. It was a station of limited appeal because it was tied to the same forces behind the publication of the Gaelic newspaper that Michael Joseph Rahilly worked for as its assistant editor. He is the person who began using the byline 'The O'Rahilly', and he is also the father of Egan John Eoin O'Sullivan O'Rahilly who renamed himself as Aodogán, and is the father of Ronan O'Rahilly.
Not only did Michael Joseph Rahilly die after being shot by a British gun during the unsuccessful Rising of 1916, but the territory into which Gilman and Sauders were entering, was laced with Irish citizens who shared similar ideas to Richard McEllistrim Rahilly who is the brother of Aodogán, who is the father of Ronan.
Remember, Richard is the one who was known as Mac, but in court as a barrister, he also called himself 'The O'Rahilly'. The roots of Mac were firmly planted in the Gaelic language of his father, because Gaelic was not English and it helped to distinguish the Irish from that hated band of oppressive people with its capital in London, England.
Mac had been on the side of Adolph Hitler hoping that Nazi Germany would cause the defeat of the hated United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. How do we know this? Because his brother, Aodogán, the father of Ronan told everyone who would listen!
For his part, Aodogán, the father of Ronan, demonstrated the same core belief to the English who came calling about Radio Caroline. I state, and restate all of this now, within context, in order to explain how the enterprise that Gilman was inviting Saunders to join. It would later come back to haunt both of them.
The problem, whose origin they did not seem to understand, would later manifest itself on board the mv Caroline. We now know why this problem came about as a result of sabotage, and we will continue to explain it all tomorrow.
Because so much rubbish has been written not only about Radio Caroline, but the people alleged to have been behind its creation, trying to explain in a few words what really happened is an impossibility.
We began attempting such an explanation in video format which is still available Online [see details right]. In that attempt we began with the words of Ronan O'Rahilly and began to work backwards through time, but this does not begin to explain the tangled web of nonsense that surrounds the entire subject.
For instance, we referenced in the July 15, 2020 of this Blog, that more than one person had called themselves 'The O'Rahilly'. The illustration we used was one of many such references to the son of Michael Joseph Rahilly.
It is Michael Joseph Rahilly who was began using the byline 'The O'Rahilly' while working as assistant editor of the Irish nationalist newspaper 'An Claidheamh Soluis' ('Sword of Light'); which Was a newspaper published by the Gaelic League, In addition to his son Egan John Eoin O'Sullivan O'Rahilly who renamed himself as Aodogán, and who was in turn the father of Ronan O'Rahilly, Michael Joseph Rahilly also had a son who called himself 'The O'Rahilly', but he was not a journalist, he was a lawyer.
According to the genealogical research of Mark Humphrys, the Rahilly Family became the O'Rahilly family sometime after 1900. The first of Michael Joseph's offspring died at a very early age with the surname of Rahilly, and next in line before Aodogán, was Richard McEllistrim Rahilly, and this is the person who became a lawyer and also decided to call himself 'The O'Rahilly'.
It seems that sometime after the birth of Richard McEllistrim Rahilly, his father decided to name his next son O'Rahilly, and thus Egan John Eoin O'Sullivan O'Rahilly came on the scene but complicated matters yet again by calling himself Aodogán. He is the father of Ronan O'Rahilly.
Now let's go back and look at the life of Richard McEllistrim Rahilly. He who was born in 1903, and in 1932 he became a practicing barrister. In the Irish press during reported court cases, he was constantly referred to as 'The O'Rahilly'. But Ronan's father was not at all happy with his sibling sharing that identity, and so he began to build up his father as the authentic version of 'The O'Rahilly'.
This is very complicated, and if you read this Blog when I first put today's edition on line, I later realized that my genealogy references were as clear as mud! So I have written parts of it.
Now it is with Richard who everyone called 'Mac' when he was not being referred to as 'The O'Rahilly', that parallel problems that developed at Dundalk which impacted both George Saunders and Ove , find common roots in the hatred by some in Ireland for all things English. Part of that hate showed up in World War II.
While the Republic of Ireland was nominally neutral, barrister Richard McEllistrim Rahilly was not neutral at all. Again, citing the excellent work on the Mark Humphrys' site, we make reference to his page at: https://humphrysfamilytree.com/ORahilly/mac.html When the UK declared war on Nazi Germany in 1939, Richard McEllistrim Rahilly decided to support Adolph Hitler in his fight with Neville Chamberlain. Mark Humphrys' quotes Mac's brother Aodogán (Ronan's father) as saying: ""Mac was a great enthusiast for the Germans."
Mac's reasoning seems to have been that If Hitler could defeat the UK, then Ireland could free itself from Britain and unite as one island nation. Mac's brother-in-law who was also a senior official in the Irish Republican Army, worked with Nazi Germany on a IRA plan for the Nazi invasion of Northern Ireland. Since Hitler lost the War, and then the Nazi atrocities began to be broadcast, the pro-German sentimentality of Mac and his friends was abandoned, but their hate for all things English did not go away.
That clock of Irish hatred for all things English began ticking in 1531, which was when King Henry VIII of England broke with Rome and declared that he was the 'Supreme Head of the Church of England'. In 1542, Henry VIII also declared himself King of Ireland and began his own formal enslavement and oppression of the Irish people.
But worse was to follow when Henry VIII broke with Rome, because he also adopted for his own use, a major part of Rome's mythology and then draped himself in it. This is the affair that has become known as 'Donation of Constantine'.
Now before you yawn and wonder what this has to do with the topic at hand, you will soon discover that a hoax that began after circa. 306, when the Roman Emperor died, resulted in his son Constantine being acclaimed Emperor by the Army based at York, England, and this in turn led to a series of myths that in 2020 still form the foundational basis for governance of the United Kingdom!
It is a weird story!
This is how it goes: In circa. 315, Constantine ('The Great'), became ill and was 'cured' by Pope Sylvester I. So Constantine, being ever so grateful, gave Sylvester the Western half of his Roman Empire.
Now this act of generosity (which has been debunked over and over again), resulted in Sylvester wearing two hats - one as the Pope ruling over his Church, and the other one as Emperor of the Western Half of the Roman Empire. It created a duopoly of 'Spiritual' and 'Temporal'. In other words there were mirrored officials and departments under Sylvester. The only problem is that this is a myth and it took until last year (2019) for Pope Francis to change the name of the 'Vatican Secret Archives', which is the actual repository for all of this nonsense, and now call it Vatican Apostolic Archives.
So here is Prince Charles, the would-be (will-be) King Charles III, wandering around looking at this priceless rubbish. It still forms the basis for governance within the United Kingdom of 2020, because Charlie will one day become the latest Supreme Head of the Church of England.
When Henry VIII broke with Rome and absorbed this duopoly resting upon a myth, it became cloaked in the Crown as a corporation sole. It had two mirrored operations. In fact, in 1989 when James Murphy went out into the North Sea to watch the Dutch board the radio ship mv Ross Revenge, he was already wearing the hat of an Investigator for the Official Solicitor who was representing the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry. Meanwhile, another Official Solicitor was busy taking care of the affairs of the Church of England.
Things got complicated after Henry VIII, what with revelations of a hoax while continuing on as if it was real, because England got involved in a series of civil wars. In the 1600s these wars also engulfed the separate Kingdom of Scotland and of course, the separate Kingdom of Ireland.
In 1649, King Charles I had his head chopped off, and then first England, and then Scotland became a unified republic under Oliver Cromwell. Only it didn't quite work out, and so when Cromwell died the republic was overthrown and a new monarchy was created in 1660 with a King Charles II. But England and Scotland and Ireland were still all separately reigned over by Charles II, and the populace was spied upon by the creation of a General Post Office that censored the mail.
Then Charles II died and the next king was overthrown by a Dutch invasion that the Crown tries hard to this day to pretend was not an invasion. Eventually the separate kingdoms of England and Scotland were joined together in 1707 as the sole Kingdom of Great Britain. The American colonies then seceded from it in 1776. In 1801, the United Kingdom minus America, then added the Kingdom of Ireland to its fold, and that led to another civil war gaining freedom for most of Ireland.
All the while this nonsense that began back with Sylvester and Constantine has been continued as part of 'British' pomp and circumstance that is called the Crown. Since it was this Crown that advanced the cause of slavery in North America and elsewhere, if 'Black Lives Matter' are half-way serious, they will stop toppling statues and topple the British Crown corporation sole which is built upon slavery - of all peoples!
So now you know where we came in to this theater of the absurd that is called 'British History'. In fact, it was John Lilburne's fight for the right to freedom of the press and freedom of expression, that marked the 1985 beginning of our own trek back into the past of lost liberty and monarchical madness.
It all began, as referenced in our previous Blog entry, with John Lilburne's acclaimed title of being 'freeborn'. In that 'Official Version' of the 1611 King James Bible, you should turn to chapter 22, and then go down the page to verse 28 of its Book of Acts. That is where you will find this reference to the Roman Empire and its citizens:
"And the chief captain answered, With a great sum obtained I this freedom. And Paul said, But I was free born." The front of the medal shown above, was struck in John Lilburne's honor by a jury of his peers back in 1649, which is when he was hailed as 'Freeborn John' following a court trial.
John Lilburne was nobody's "subject" or slave!
We have elaborated upon his theme with our own academic monologue which is Online at: http://foundthreads.com/ [‘Me and my Shadow’ Reinterpreted: Collectivism Applied to Individualism as a Stereoscopic Overlay Producing an Illusion of Reality.]
Now the stage has been set for us to finally explain why George Saunders looked around for someone to blame for the engineering mess on board the mv Caroline. That pending disaster now appears to be the work of intentional saboteurs striking back at the English for coming to Greenore, Ireland to work on a English offshore radio station. It became bathed in the cloak of the hated British Establishment, because its figureheads Princess Margaret and Jocelyn Stevens certainly did not represent the downtrodden hoi polloi of England, and no amount of blather by Ronan O'Rahilly fooled the people of Ireland that he was really running the show!
Tomorrow we visit the cause of George Saunder's engineering nightmare.
[Please note: Part of the text of this Blog entry has been rewritten due to the confusion created by the original text when trying to explain O'Rahilly genealogy.]
Back in 1985, we ('The Trio'), were engaged in an international radio project called Four Freedoms World Service (and a companion 4FTN on U.S. cable television.) At that time recorded music was still restricted on U.K. radio due to licensing contracts. We wondered why it was possible (at that time), to legally play rock 'n' roll all day on the radio in the USA, but not in the UK.
We just happened to have a copy of the '1968 Yearbook of Encyclopedia Britannica' on the shelf in our radio studio, and it was flipped-open, more out of frustration than for any other reason, while pondering that question. We then came across an interesting five page article by the late U.S. Supreme Court Justice Hugo L. Black. [Picture above, right.] Cutting a long story very short, he attributed the basis for America's freedoms that are enshrined in its 1789 U.S. Constitution, to Englishman John Lilburne, who we had never heard of, before that moment.
It was Black's article, which was apparently written by his wife, that caused us to embark on a quest to discover whether John Lilburne was related to Thomas Jefferson. We discovered that this question had been both asked and answered in a positive manner many decades earlier, and this in turn led to the creation of our own private research organization.
Again, cutting a long story very short, this first discovery then led to the publication by us of a variety of monologues, books and broadcasts. You can still hear a recording of one of our earlier broadcasts about John Lilburne at https://www.mixcloud.com/mervyn-hagger/4fws-1989-part-two-john-lilburne-story/ [Caveat: This broadcast was made decades before we began to discover the real story behind the creation of Radio Caroline.]

This is where our present investigation has led us back to our roots, because in the U.K., power has been imposed upon individuals via a Crown corporation sole. This entity claims a single right held in perpetuity that can deprive individual human beings of their natural rights and thus deprive them of the ability to control their own lives. Stated in stark terms, this is the issue that eventually led to the U.S. Declaration of Independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain.
In 1776, the Kingdom of Great Britain was composed of the Kingdom of England, which had already engulfed a geographical area called Wales; and joined it in a union with the Kingdom of Scotland. It was to support the power structure controlling this unholy alliance, that the British Crown which was (and is) managed from London, continued to feed upon their own financial stake in the African slave trade.
But the same Crown structure, which already independently controlled the island of Ireland; in 1801 merged that island of Ireland into its 1707 creation called the United Kingdom of Great Britain. (England plus Wales with Scotland.)
Now if you think for a single moment, that this so-called United Kingdom of 1707 has a continuous pedigree stretching back through the annals of time, you will be very mistaken. In fact, we have partially addressed this in our video found at http://radiocaroline.info
In order to shut everyone up from asking questions, in 1660 an Act of Oblivion had been passed by the Kingdom of England, which happens to be when the General Post Office was created in London as a means of censorship. That same GPO then created the BBC and went to war against Radio Caroline. So we go around in a circle since it was the GPO that prevented broadcasting from developing in the UK, the way it had in the USA, and out of all that emerged Radio Caroline.
But what we are now unveiling is the answer to the question of what was behind the creation of Radio Caroline?
Well, the current brouhaha called 'Black Lives Matter' has a lot in common with Michael Joseph Rahilly. Neither movement is what it seems to be at first glance. Michael Joseph Rahilly who became known as 'The O'Rahilly' while assistant editor of the Irish nationalist newspaper 'An Claidheamh Soluis' ('Sword of Light') was a newspaper published by the Gaelic League. It served as the propaganda motivational source behind the failed 'Easter Rising' of 1916, which led to the death of Michael Rahilly.
This is where the story behind Radio Caroline has been intentionally mixed-up with references to Michael Joseph Rahilly and the life of his son, who was the father of Ronan O'Rahilly. But again, and over a period of time, Egan John Eoin O'Sullivan O'Rahilly who was born in 1904 at Hove (Brighton), England, has embellished the story of his father to such a point that it must be revisited if we are to understand the background to the creation of Radio Caroline.
This is also the same issue that Harry Spencer was confronted with at Greenore when Ronan's father turned his back on Harry because he was English, and it is the same issue that lay behind the mess that engineer George Saunders was told to go and fix by John Howard Gilman. That was the engineering disaster on board the mv Caroline, ex-Fredericia. It is therefore the same issue behind the problem that Ove Sjöström seems to have been unfairly blamed for.
That issue and how it feeds through time from 1916 to 1964, will be further explained tomorrow in part 10 of the Nightmare at Greenore.
