Figuring out how we all got bushwhacked and trapped inside a new propaganda mill churning out a new interpretation of everything we thought we knew, but didn't, is quite a daunting undertaking, especially if you have limited funding and limited helpers! But that is us!
We are not affiliated to any outside group; religious, political or social and therefore we have no "Master". We are free people and a good part of our own awakening to the meaning of the word "freedom" has come from living in the Lone Star State of Texas. In Texas you sink or swim, and although social awareness has begun to change due to migration into the State by individuals bringing outside ideas with them, change has been very slow indeed.
Some things are quite surprising about Texas. It is very protective of the right of individuals to believe in their own reason for being alive, and it became protective of children long before a lot socialized States and nations began showing an interest in that area of human existence. But it is also a place where adult individuals have had to look to themselves to get bailed out of trouble, because the government still sees its main role in protecting individuals from harm by outsiders, more than anything else. "Freedom" in Texas has meant the right to succeed and the right to fail at succeeding.
Now you know that, you know the history of Brown and Root which became a part of Halliburton. With the rugged individualism of fending off outsiders came the means to do so. Because Texas is one state in a union of states forming the nation called the United States of America; Texans have retained their ability to defend themselves and their interests against any form of unwanted interference by individuals; or groups of individuals, and any nation which dares to show aggression towards the USA.
Texas is also vast, so big that it could be split up into several smaller States, and the climate and geography of each one would offer something different to the others. This vastness of size containing enormous natural resources, also gave Texas the ability to become a huge food and energy resource for the nation.
Now we are talkin' money. Big money, and with big money comes big political clout which Halliburton and Brown and Root thrived upon.
Lyndon Baines Johnson was their 'boy' from the word 'go!'
LBJ did what his Masters told him to do, and because LBJ became President of the United States of America, well that kind of opened up its own can of worms, because Brown and Root were not the only Masters, and LBJ was not the only Servant, although he was figuratively the 'top dog'.
This is the culture that came to visit the Crown dominated United Kingdom. Uncouth by British standards? Of course. Powerful? Yes, but so was the British Crown which developed a highly visible geographical empire full of pomp and circumstance which then morphed into an invisible empire of financial wealth surrounded and protected by official secrecy.
So what has any of this to do with offshore broadcasting and especially 'Radio Caroline' in the Sixties?
If you don't know who has been pulling the strings that open the memory banks of your mind, you have no idea of the validity of what has been placed in there. To find the answers you need investigators. We call ourselves 'YesterTecs'. Investigation of this kind is our own mandate for this Blog. We are pulling this strange story apart and we are shining our own light into the dark crevices to find the hidden pieces of a gigantic jigsaw puzzle whose completed picture is not the one that your perceived image has gleaned from the few pieces that you have seen so far.
Now as far as offshore broadcasting in the Sixties is concerned, and especially as it reflects anything to do with the creation of 'Radio Caroline', that story which was terminated in 1967 and limped into oblivion by the Spring of the following year, remained unchanged until 1990, and that is when the mischief really began. That is what we will be revealing in this ongoing story which will appear in book format as 'Dial 999 for Caroline'.
GIANT was a 1956 movie, and if you watch the entire film (which you can still rent or purchase), you will get an idea of where those Texans came from: the ones who planted their stake into the continental shelf of the North Sea. It will also give you an idea of how big this research project of ours is, and you get to know what is taking us so long to accomplish this job.
Below is just a brief clip.
Remember, we are not dancing to anyone else's tune, just our own!
