Paul Alexander Rusling was not the first person to trade on dimentia as a means of covering his tracks in order to sell books about people who could not be cross-examined, either because of illness; death or the fact that in sound health they never, ever told the truth. You can make-up anything you like about a person who is dead and who lied consistently while still alive.
Now on to this same Ruslingesque platform has stepped Mike Plumley to write about the recently departed Christopher Moore, who sounds as if he, like Ronan O'Rahilly departed without being fully aware of who he was or where he had been. That is what various forms of dementia do to the human mind. I knew a person who died in a nursing home not so long ago with similar symptoms, and her death was tranquil and without pain, but she only had a frail grasp of reality.
The storyline about the original station called Radio Caroline is enmeshed in a trio of deceit and diseased minds, by people who were brought in by the real promoters to mislead and deceive both the press and public. As the years went by this trio went in separate physical directions but continued to engage in deceit about their prior activities.
Paul Rusling was but one of the latest hack writers to engage in the game of 'tell all for cash', when in reality he had nothing to tell, but he did have a need for cash. Some engage in this game for vanity having a semi-association with one or more of the original Caroline conning trio. Rusling did have connections to O'Rahilly, but not in the formation period when the original Radio Caroline came on the air. Mike Plumley is not asking for money, he is just dispensing misinformation, or at best, confused and garbled information based upon hearsay,
There have been two recent accounts of Mike Plumley doing this, and in both instances his vehicle of dissemination was Offshore Echos magazine. A prior instance was referenced by this Blog a few months ago with regards to Mike Plumley's comment about Ian Cowper Ross. See: https://www.yesternoir.org/caroline-brooks-blog/oem-202-review
Now, with the death of Christopher Moore, an obituary by Mike Plumley has appeared Online in the website belonging to Offshore Echos magazine. You can read this for yourself at: https://www.offshoreechos.com/Main%20page.html
Offshore Echos did not publish Plumley's obituary to deceive, but the magazine does appear to have been deceived by Mike Plumley, and here's why:
We, as an investigative team of journalists, are trying to uncover the true story behind the 1964 creation of Radio Caroline, but it is a story that has been previous drowned in lies and deception quite deliberately. To prove the real facts in evidence requires documentation and that is what we have provided regarding Ian Cowper Ross and his father Charles Edward Ross.
Now, with the death of Christopher Moore another enigma has arisen from the grave. Chris Moore was around with both Ross and O'Rahilly in 1964, but he appears to have been the victim of a con job himself. So back then Chris Moore sued Ronan O'Rahilly only to discover that Ronan O'Rahilly did not know the true story about Radio Caroline. So in 1990 Chris Moore seems to have patched-up his rift with O'Rahilly and appeared with Ian Cowper Ross in a BBC-TV documentary about the start of Radio Caroline, which was primarily a work of fiction, and not a work of journalistic documentation.
Chris Moore then disappeared and the episodic recital provided by Mike Plumley about the last days of Christopher Moore do not appear to have been happy, contented days looking back on a pleasant life. It is on this note that Mike Plumley has decided to step forward and tell readers of Offshore Echos magazine all about the life of Chris Moore.
This is part of Mike Plumley's recital:
The problems with this paragraph are many!
Ian Cowper Ross in his own work of biographical fiction does recount how and where he first met Chris Moore who then introduced him to Ronan O'Rahilly. But Ian Cowper Ross' book has taken basic facts and run them through a mangle to which has been added all manner of make-believe nonsense. Ian Cowper Ross' book has no documentary value at all. It merely confirms a developing storyline retold on BBC-TV that is a work of fiction that is intended to deceive. Chris Moore was in that TV show and he appeared on camera with Ian Cowper Ross.
So the question is this: Before he died, or in a letter he left behind, did Chris Moore do a 'tell all' with documentary proof for the benefit of Mike Plumley, or has Mike Plumley merely repeated hearsay from some other unnamed source?
Mike Plumley claims that before his involvement with Radio Caroline in 1964, Christopher Moore worked as DJ at the Crazy Elephant Club at 28 Curzon Street, and Ian Cowper Ross has claimed by inference, that he first met Christopher Moore when he was a club DJ. But did Christopher Moore ever work at the Crazy Elephant Club, because if he did, it was not on Curzon Street!
There was a restaurant at 28 Curzon Street called the White Elephant, but Mike Plumley claims that the establishment called the Crazy Elephant Club was owned by "Benny Fisz". and that he was tied into the 'James Bond' film franchise. In this way Plumley drops the name of George Lazenby. Now he is getting into a murky pool of criminality involving Lazenby's conman and associate thief who claimed to be the heir of 'Drummond Bank'. More lies, and more deceit.
So what about Benny Fisz? Well, he is in reality Szlomo Benjamin Fisz who was a Polish film producer and writer. He died on November 17, 1989. No association in his movie-making with 'James Bond'.
Then what about the White Elephant, did Szlomo Benjamin Fisz own part of it? Not that we can discover. It was opened by a husband and wife team in the early 1950s, and when the husband died of illness, his wife maintained management for a while. But her interest was in producing plays at the same time and for the same ITA franchised television companies that Dorothy (Kitty) Black was working for, and both were performing similar work. The probability is that these two women knew each other.
Then what about the Crazy Elephant Club, did it exist? Yes it did at 57 Jermyn Street, and here is a picture of its basement doorway taken not so long ago:
We are not claiming that Mike Plumley did not come into contact with either (or both) Ian Cowper Ross and Christopher Moore, but what we are stating is that if he did, it was long after the events of 1959 to 1964 that led up to the creation of Radio Caroline.
In other words, without documentation, Mike Plumley appears to be engaging in more hearsay mythology to promote the same sort of storyline that appears in Rusling's contrived nonsense that he calls a 'bible'.
We will keep you informed as part of our research.
Tennessee Ernie Ford asked that question regarding sixteen tons, and his explanation was that you get deeper in debt. We explain that you kill and main more people and destroy more property by closing your eyes to what happened in the days following September 3, 1939.
What happened on September 3, 1939?
On that day, the great and majestic United Kingdom declared war on Germany, because two days earlier, Germany invaded Poland. The UK said "Get out, or else!"
Germany ignored the UK and so the UK went to war with Germany, supposedly to force Germany out of Poland. But it did no such thing. The UK did not solve a problem, it blew it up into a worldwide conflagration of murder and destruction of property.
Germany did invade Poland, but the UK declared war based upon a fiction!
On September 3, 1939, the UK may have had the excuse of ignorance, unless of course you ask whether UK Crown spies already knew what the truth was. If they did, then the UK was simply waiting for "the other shoe (boot) to drop".
If a German foot occupied one boot in Poland, whose foot occupied the other boot?
On September 3, 1939 the British Crown pretended that a one-footed German soldier invaded Poland. But that lie was revealed just a few days later on September 17, 1939, because that is when the USSR sent in its own symbolic one-foot soldier to invade Poland.
The narrative of the one-foot soldier is still parroted by the British Broadcasting Corporation and its State authorized siblings in media, to this day. But it is only a half-truth to say that Germany invaded Poland and consequently the UK declared war on Germany.
Not only that, but twelve days after declaring war on Germany, the UK knew that it was promoting a lie, because a half-truth is not the whole truth, and after September 17, 1939, the UK had no excuse left in promoting this lie regarding the German invasion of Poland resulting in the UK Declaration of War on Germany.
What might still have been true on September 16, 1939, was not the whole truth on September 17, 1939, because on that date, the USSR (Russia) invaded Poland from the east, and its forces joined up in a handshake with German forces half-way into Poland. In other words, Germany and the USSR divided Poland between them. In fact, Germany had an agreement with the USSR to stop invading Poland at the half-way mark.
It was not the United Kingdom that halted the Nazi German invasion of Poland. It was Nazi Germany that stopped invading according to the terms and conditions of its agreement to do so with the USSR.
But here we are in the Twenty-first Century still hearing the official lie, because in a court of law a half-truth is not the "whole truth", and therefore it is a distortion of the truth, or to put it bluntly, it is a lie! The BBC and its British media siblings are good at telling Crown-endorsed lies for which no one goes to prison, and anyone who does not believe in official BBC lies is deemed to be unpatriotic.
The BBC (and its Crown siblings), are corruptors of truth. Putting it bluntly: they lie!
This media mess is engaged in by all those who take on British Crown licenses and none can be more corrupt in this sense, than the mini-organization that has sprung up under the name of 'Radio Caroline'.
While supposedly championing freedom of the airwaves it is in reality preaching a totally propagandistic lie about the creation of Radio Caroline in 1964, and the now departed Christopher Moore was a part of that corruption. He realized that he had been conned by the lies uttered from the mouth of Ronan O'Rahilly, and he even filed suit against Ronan O'Rahilly. Then the penny dropped when Christopher Moore realized that the entire charade spun by Ronan O'Rahilly was so complete, that even Ronan O'Rahilly did not know what was going on.
But these anorak jokesters of today and the conmen of yesterday are one thing, but the BBC and its siblings (of which the misbranded mini Radio Caroline is a part), are all engaged in furthering a big lie in which millions of human beings died and maimed for life, and caused millions of Pounds in property damage.
That big lie surrounds the uncorrected Declaration of War on September 3, 1939, and its broadcast at 11:15 AM that day over the government controlled airwaves of the British Broadcasting Corporation.
It has come to our attention that another bogus account regarding the start of Radio Caroline in 1964, has used the recent death of Christopher Moore as an excuse to post more fake information about the original offshore station called Radio Caroline. This bogus account has appeared on a web page created by a new enterprise calling itself 'Radio Caroline', but which has no connection to the original operation.
This fake posting is part of the ongoing attempt by that new venture to sell books and raise money for this new enterprise, but in doing so it is trading upon a fraudulent premise. The notice of death (without date), states in part that: "Chris was born on April 16, 1940 in Washington, DC into an Irish-American family. He moved to the UK with his American mother at the age of 8, and attended English boarding school from a young age. By the early sixties, he had became a noted London club DJ, being resident at the fashionable Crazy Elephant club in London's West End. His flat mate at that time, Ian Ross ...."
This fake posting then continues with these words: "He founded Radio Caroline, together with Ian Ross and Ronan O'Rahilly, in 1964. Funds having been successfully raised through Ian's father ...."
We have previously explained in detail on this Blog who Ian Cowper Ross is, and what his father was doing in 1964, and we can state quite emphatically that Charles Edward Ross (Ian's father), was not the financier of the original Radio Caroline.
But this fake posting also makes this claim about Christopher Moore: ".... he was the one who was thought to know about ships, as it appeared that he had worked briefly as a steward on a cruise ship. He was sent by Ronan to Scandinavia in 1963, reportedly with a suitcase full of cash (or maybe the money followed later), to purchase the former Danish passenger ferry, MV Fredericia, which was fitted out, in secrecy, as a radio ship in Greenore, Ireland."
This again is nonsense.
The ship (mv Fredericia) was obtained by Wijsmuller and partially outfitted at Rotterdam where it spent almost as much time as it did at Greenore. She ship was going to the Isle of Wight for rigging but at the last moment its destination was switched to Greenore.
It should also be noted that Christopher Moore became convinced that he had been swindled by Ronan O'Rahilly due to the lies and misinformation that Ronan O'Rahilly spread about putting Radio Caroline on the air, so Christopher Moore sued him in a English Court. He then discovered that because of the true military "need-to-know" legal and financial structure behind Radio Caroline, that Ronan O'Rahilly was not the person that he claimed to be, and that Ronan O'Rahilly had no knowledge about the legal and financial structure of the station.
There are so many aspects of this story that involve a lot of specific interest groups which seem to go around and around in circles with their comments.
They are like religious cults in that sense, because their topic subject is also their dogma. To deviate from it, is to deviate from their doctrine. Consequently other factors never come into play, and so they work upon a confirmation bias that cannot reach a resolution. Why? Because they have closed their eyes to the bigger picture which they view as extraneous matter.
In the instance of this Blog the bigger picture is called "oil", or more specifically, offshore natural gas and oil. So before any particular post on this Blog advances too far with detailed information, and then deviates from the trunk of the tree, we will remind you of this basic fact because it took us years to identify it!
The trunk of the tree is called "oil", and we will keep reminding you of what we are investigating, and why we are investigating it.
An example of deviation by confirmation bias leading to obfuscation of the real issue, is found in the 'Declaration of War' by the United Kingdom against Nazi Germany. That document resulted from a failed ultimatum over Poland.
The UK has continued to hammer out the message over its State influenced media, that it got into WWII because Nazi Germany invaded Poland, and Nazi Germany would not withdraw when told to do so by the UK.
But that is an explanation based upon half of the facts in evidence.
In a courtroom demanding the "whole truth", that explanation would be deemed to be a lie.
The real story, which the UK knew, was that Nazi Germany and the USSR had concluded a trade deal involving oil shipments. Those shipments from Baku, USSR, were delivered to the Polish border in train tank cars running on one gauge of rail line. They were then transferred to another train of tank cars at the Polish border which was running on a different gauge of rail line. After the transfer they were taken to Nazi Germany.
This trade deal was then followed by a Nazi Germany and Communist Russia (USSR) 'Non-Aggression Pact'. That Pact was followed by a Nazi invasion from the west of Poland. Seventeen days later, Communist Russia invaded from the east of Poland. But the UK only blamed Nazi Germany for its invasion of Poland.
However, the UK devised a plan to bomb Baku in order to shut off oil shipments that were fueling the Nazi war machine. But that bombing raid never happened. In hindsight, armchair critics have contended that if it had, then the USSR would have joined Nazi Germany to wage war upon the UK. But would it? The USSR would have also been deprived of oil.
Now consider this:
The planned bombing of Baku was also contemplated by the USSR itself - after Nazi Germany broke their 'Non-Aggression Pact' by invading the USSR, because Nazi Germany intended to seize Baku. Although Nazi Germany never made it that far, the USSR dismantled the facilities at Baku and shifted most of them to other oil deposits further in land.
If this bombing by a fleet of both British and French planes (before the fall of France) had taken place, then would the rest of the story have played-out as it is now written?
Think about the bigger picture: Those mass extermination Nazi death camps may never had a chance to be put into operation as part of 'Final Solution'! Yes, the Nazi Germans hated Jews, but Winston Churchill was also blaming 'bad Jews' for being responsible for the creation of the USSR! As long ago as 1920 when Winston Churchill was the MP for Dundee in Scotland, he identified the leader of those 'bad Jews' as being the founder of a Germanic secret society called 'Illuminati'. Winston Churchill was an anti-Semitic conspiracy nutcase, according to today's "wok" standard of judging human behavior!
The USSR ruthlessly exterminated its enemies. They exterminated the Polish soldiers that they captured and then falsely blamed their executions upon the Nazis. But the USSR under Joe Stalin had years of experience at ruthless extermination of its enemies. Joe Stalin was way-ahead of Adolph Hitler in that comparison. Whether Hitler 'caught-up' with Stalin in their race to exterminate human beings is another matter. Communist China may have been a late-comer to this awful 'game' of mass-exterminating enemies, but Mao certainly joined the 'Hall of Infamy' already populated by Stalin and Hitler. Mao was major-league monster.
This speculation about "what if" is what happens when anyone deviates from the trunk of the tree. The people engrossed in the conspiracy theories surrounding the murder of JFK are also engaged in this useless kind of prattle, and so are the people who devote their lives to the story of broadcasting, both onshore and offshore. But both of those sub-topics are merely branches off the main topic.
That topic, the topic of this Blog, is all about oil.
It has taken us decades to uncover the real story behind offshore broadcasting, and it seems that to date, no other author has put together the real story. One reason is because the foundation of the story is not about offshore broadcasting, it is about offshore oil.
Uncovering the history of John D. Rockefeller's Standard Oil Trust became the major contribution of Ida Tarbell, many decades ago. Then the U.S. Government took action and it caused that Trust to fragment into what is commonly referred to as the 'seven sisters', and those seven companies have hidden behind as much fake promotion as it has been possible to do, given that their public persona blares out at every filling station selling their products.
'Energy crisis' flashpoints have triggered both frustration on street corner fuel pumps, and hot wars of aggression at foreign pumping and refinery installations. It is the latter that begat the strangest concealment of all, because it relates to the real trigger behind the British entry into World War II.
We did not make either of the two videos below, but they both highlight information that has been obfuscated about events that led up to the United Kingdom declaring war in 1939 on Nazi Germany. It has been claimed that this formal Declaration of War was caused by the German invasion of Poland, but only later was it revealed that the USSR had an agreement with the Soviet Union to carve-up Poland as equal spoils of war.
So, if the United Kingdom entered WWII to honor its commitment to defend Poland against aggression, why wasn't this first Declaration of War against Nazi Germany on September 1, 1939 followed by a second Declaration of War against Communist Russia on September 17, 1939?
In other words why is the British Public still being lied to by downplaying this second event and pretending that all would have been well if only Hitler had not invaded Poland on September 1, 1939, while obfuscating the stark fact that a few days later on September 17, 1939, Stalin also invaded Poland and then both nations carved-up Poland as spoils of war?
Why is the British Broadcasting Corporation still playing-up this first invasion by hosting the ritual of the British Queen with Her Crown corporation sole members - who play a game of pretending to honor the war dead?
Because that is what they are doing by pretending that this entire episode was caused by the actions of Adolph Hitler alone! But he was not alone. Behind this joint invasion was a secret joint venture and it was all about oil!
That 'Joint Venture' has also become the subject of obfuscation, because it has been simply reported as a 'Non-Aggression Pact', but that is a lie! It was far more than that as the following video will explain: It was all about Adolph Hitler having enough fuel imported from the USSR to enable him to wage war on the rest of Europe! No oil, not fall of France and no Dunkirk and no Battle of Britain. All those tanks and planes needed fuel, and the USSR was one of three major sources of available petroleum in the world at that time.
Joe Stalin was in bed with Adolph Hitler, and then, gasp! Shock! Horror! Adolph Hitler betrayed their marriage of convenience by later attacking the USSR. More than this, the betrayal of the British people into thinking that this was only a war against Adolph Hitler is a lie. The British government knew where Adolph Hitler was getting his fuel from, as the following video will explain:
Footnote: The U.S. commentator towards the end of this video confuses pronunciation of Edinburgh, Scotland with Edinburg, Texas.
Because details of the trade agreement in which the USSR supplied Nazi Germany with fuel to wage war on other nations has become public, it became necessary for the British Crown to engage in a game of 'What if Britain had bombed Baku and shut off the oil supply to Nazi Germany?' The official answer is that the USSR would then have become an active partner with Nazi Germany and declared war on the UK, and consequently Britain would have lost WWII.
But is that true, or is it more British propaganda?
If Hitler needed Soviet oil to wage his war on other nations, then at the very least his loss of fuel would have led to a reassessment of his own situation, and perhaps a pause in his future plans of conquest. On the other hand, the loss of fuel by the Soviet Union would hinder any immediate plans that it had to wage war in retaliation on the UK.
Therefore the initial cover-up of the joint Nazi Germany - Communist Russia trade agreement, and the subsequent downplaying of the joint invasion of Poland by both Nazi Germany and Communist Russia, is simply a case of more obfuscation to bring about a brainwashed propaganda message to the British people via the British Broadcasting Corporation and other State influenced media to continue to deliver a British perspective of WWII.
The UK still does not have a written constitution, and freedom of its airwaves is still not a factor today, anymore than freedom of the press was a factor in the days of Freeborn John Lilburne.
No matter how much idealism was involved, underwriting the first offshore station required a knowledge of national laws and international treaties, and that was not the domain of teenagers having a good time listing to the radio. Neither was the choice of location for the original station. It was at the chokehold of the Baltic Sea which is where the USSR had a fleet of surface ships and submarines ready to turn the Cold War into World War III. But for those vessels to serve any purpose they had to get out of the Baltic Sea and into the North Sea.
Another overlooked vital piece of information is the real story behind the United States Coast Guard Cutter 'Courier' which was eventually anchored off Greece. Offshore broadcasting idealists have oft-cited this ship, but little did they seem to know its back story. That ship was a stopgap measure, and it was based upon a failed attempt at offshore broadcasting by the US Navy during World War II. How do we know this? Because it is part of the official U.S. government records that explained both the financing and purpose of the floating 'Voice of America' station. Unfortunately the pop writers did not do the research required, and so they never read this foundational information.
Just like a pebble thrown into a pond that causes ripples to spread in all directions, so this story about offshore broadcasting is also linked to those initial ripples. But offshore radio was not the cause of that first splash. It was caused by a Texas company dropping anchor for the first time as part of their quest to find and exploit natural gas and oil deposits under the waters of the North Sea. Meanwhile a fleet of U.S. nuclear submarines based in Scotland sent one of their number to stand guard at that same gateway to the Baltic Sea, and that is where the first commercial offshore station was located.
Clearly from reading the background to the Danish Nazi Party, it is obvious that no one forced Alex Brask Thomsen to help create this fledgling political group, which even its original leader decided to desert - before Alex Brask Thomsen claims that he quit when the Germans invaded Denmark. So therefore it is worth taking a much closer look at all those who later involved themselves with the offshore station Radio Mercur, because nothing about offshore broadcasting is what it has been claimed to be.
The location is Jutland and it is a peninsula that is central to explaining the background to our investigation, because this is the location where the subjects of offshore oil and offshore radio collide.
This is where Jutland is located in relationship to Demark and Germany. Its borderlands contain ethnic minorities from both Denmark and Germany - on opposite sides of the two borders:
This is where the Nazi Third Reich took its last stand with a de facto and de jure government ....
Alex Brask Thomsen emerged from this geographical area of Jutland bordering both Denmark and Germany, and became a founding member of the Hitler-era Danish Nazi Party, and then, after World War II he became the financier underwriting the offshore station Radio Mercur. It is therefore unfortunate that his family members commissioned his autobiography to be written in such a way that it became merely a non-controversial tribute, and not an in-depth account of his life. To find his real story, is necessary to seek the facts elsewhere by following oblique references that are within the book.
Clearly there are a lot of people with a lot of vested interests who do not want the true story that links the roots of offshore broadcasting to the roots of the North Sea Oil and Natural Gas industry, because some of those roots are derived from the original Nazi Era of Gas Chambers. But if the true story is to be told, then it has to be told in context with as many of the real facts that can be retrieved from the censored past. That is the story we will continue to reveal here, in depth, day after day. Eventually we will synthesize it into book format. We are of course well aware that a lot of people still revert to the old line that they just didn't know the entire Nazi agenda. Well, whether they did, or whether they didn't know is besides the point, because they all contributed to a yesterday that they pretend never happened. But unfortunately, it did.
LBJ was first "inaugurated" on a jet parked at a Dallas airfield, after the previous president had part of his head blown off. So the Vice-President became President for the remainder of the term won by John F. Kennedy. When it came to his own election in 1964, he could not ask the previous president to attend and validate a transfer of power, so he asked the president before John F. Kennedy. That was President Eisenhower, and he refused, in a very polite manner!
On January 17, 1961, President Eisenhower in his final address to the U.S. nation warned viewers about the dangers of the Military Industrial Complex. It had been created in response to the Cold War which followed on from the nuclear conclusion of World War II. Of course the Internet owes its foundational existence to the academic aspects of the Military Industrial Complex, but in today's world nothing, especially the Military Industrial Complex, could function without oil. That is the vital ingredient that makes everything in today's world function. Whoever controls the oil supply ultimately controls everything else, and that once included the political career of Lyndon Baines Johnson. [Note: This video has been edited by us to include an excerpt from the introduction to the last television address by President Eisenhower. It then quickly moves on to that now often cited portion of his speech in which he drew attention to the ad hoc activities of academia and industry who were working together in secrecy for the benefit of the U.S. Armed Forces, and all deriving their funding from U.S. taxpayers via the U.S. Treasury.]
