The year was 1906, and President Teddy Roosevelt had read enough enough exposés about the corruption that was rife in government, and so on April 14 he gave a speech titled "The Man with the Muck-Rake."
His inspiration for his title came from John Bunyan's 1678 novel called 'Pilgrim's Progress'. That story is about a man raking muck, but who is so engrossed in his work that he can't see that not everyone and everything is corrupt. So Teddy Roosevelt interpreted this to mean that "the men with the muck rakes are often indispensable to the well being of society; but only if they know when to stop raking the muck."
In plain language that means that if investigative journalism leads to your door, then the investigation should stop immediately, or, "don't do as I do, do as I say." It has been written of Teddy Roosevelt that he was not a 'Trust-Buster', but a Trust Regulator. In other words, Rockefeller's empire which had been founded in Ohio, and with the help of Ida Tarbell smashed into pieces, was then regrouped structurally under a variety of names. They were registered in a variety of states, so that people who were then seen pulling various strings of business under different names, all continued on their individual merry ways to their appointed various banks which held the various assets of what had been previously identified as a single entity.
This was the game called Big Oil which powered motors fitted in vehicles that delivered fuel to generating plants for the combines which controlled the generation of electricity and all of the many things that electricity can power, including the manufacture of petroleum powered motors. Once this racket began, it became impossible to stop it. It was not the products that were at fault but the people who engaged in boodling, because they not only passed the laws to control oil production, but they also had control of taxpayer money that was paid out in the form of government contracts. That money all passed through the boodling hands of bureaucrats.
Big business, which is what Trusts are, needs big money to be successful, and big money comes from big bank accounts, and one of the largest bank accounts is owned by the United States Treasury. You gain access to it via government contracts, and you gain contracts via politicians, and you gain access to politicians by kick-backs from your business ventures: "You scratch my back, and I'll scratch yours."
In the days when Teddy Roosevelt carried his big stick and bossed people around, muckrakers descended upon State after State in search of "boodlers". They are the people engaged in graft who corrupt political life in order to achieve personal gain. The muckrakers of the past were investigative journalists who began publishing stories at State level, because at a local State level it was common knowledge that a lot of hands were delving into a lot of State coffers holding a lot of the taxpayers' money, and at State level, a lot of people knew who the boodlers were.
On the surface, Teddy Roosevelt championed capitalist ideology until he discovered that without some form of restraint, gigantic monopolistic Trusts emerged with a primary goal of stifling competition. The free marketplace disappeared. It was no free enterprise.
Investigative journalists discovered that the men controlling the State governments were often bought and paid for by known commercial vested interests, and to maintain office, these guys rigged elections. So people on the lower receiving end of boodling, the taxpayers and employees of the big Trusts began to demand that control of the Trusts be transferred to governmental entitles.
In other words, incompetent bureaucratic bosses who had no idea about how to run a business, became the incompetent managers of the boodling process. The governments just cut out the middle man when schemes of nationalization were touted. Graft was simplified.
In the years that followed on from Teddy Roosevelt, the United States economic system imploded due to corruption, and then another Roosevelt, named Franklin Delano became President of the United States. At first he fell in love with the new approach of an Italian leader named Benito Mussolini who he thought, had taken the best of capitalism and married it to socialism.
Mussolini's form of government adopted the symbol of the fasces, and unfortunately the U.S. has also incorporated this symbolism which had been previously adopted by the French, but its origin belongs to the Roman Empire. However, in 1933, FDR borrowed the then in vogue Mussolini version, to pattern his own 'New Deal' form of government within a government.
FDR's New Deal was an entire system of government identified by its own flag; code of conduct, and presided over by Major Hugh S. Johnson. It was aided by a salute previously introduced by Francis Bellamy when addressing the Stars and Stripes and pledging Allegiance. But when the Nazis adopted a similar version of that salute, it was dropped in 1942 for a hand over heart gesture, and that was only after the USA entered World War II. However, the entire NRA project was a failure, although it did make a lot of tax money available to some very big corporations, which was not exactly the outwardly professed intention of the original New Deal.
Click the banner below to see a film about FDR's New Deal presided over by General Hugh Johnson:
Then a magic show took place.
Instead of scrapping the term 'New Deal' it was sort of reborn sans military general, flag and code. But the commercial, or neo-fascist health of the United States of America was not saved from its economic depression until Japan bombed the U.S. Fleet anchored at Pearl Harbor.
This gave FDR a fresh start by bombing Mussolini's fascist dream of recreating the Roman Empire. Thus Franklin Delano Roosevelt distanced the USA from anything that smacked of Mussolini's fascism, or its bigger spin-off of Adolph Hitler's Third Reich. This was then followed by a long-running Cold War that was fought against the ideology of Joseph Stalin's Communist Empire.
War production in the USA increased the wealth of a lot of good old boys, and it also gave birth to a new generation of wealth seekers who also got their hands into the United States Treasury in order to pay for all kinds of infrastructure projects. Many citizens of the USA basked in the luxury that well paying jobs could provide in the booming Fifties. This was especially true in some areas of Texas where political and commercial power settled on Houston as its base of operations.
Because oil was the lubricant that made the factories and homes of the USA vibrate with wealth, the guys in Houston who controlled the oil, also controlled the wealth, and they also controlled the politicians who controlled Texas and were then sent to Washington, DC to control the USA. But what does this little lesson about the past have to say about today's events that are drowning the USA of 2020 in cries of "voter fraud"?
Although the past may repeat itself in various ways, it is never an exact replica of what has gone before. But there are comparative similarities. Those comparative similarities are what we should now be watching out for, because they may give us hints about the immediate future in 2021.
Here on this Blog we will be taking apart the rogue undertakings of the good old boys in Houston, Texas, and we will continue to reveal how they created and shaped mass media culture in Europe using another kind of warfare called offshore broadcasting. That story is not the same story told by numerous vanity authors reciting tales about the experiences of disc jockeys and spinning records, or even boats pitching about on the North Sea. Their works contain tales of no consequence, but they have fooled millions.
Previous authors have diverted attention away from the real story by concentrating upon fables. But this Blog does not. It scrapes away their muck to reveal the true story. Their fables are merely incidental anecdotes attached to a story that has and continues to affect the lives of millions of people.
It is now time to tell the truth.
Because we are not fettered by any "powers that be", we can almost joyfully "muckrake" as we please while we scrape away fables to reveal the stench of a sinister tale drowning in corruption. It used to be called "boodling".
Happy muckraking with us in 2021!
Okay, let's deal with this issue:
The 2020 Election and charges of ....
No court has judged the merits of that claim after hearing and seeing the evidence, because case after case was tossed or refused before a case could begin in court.
But what does the track record of US Elections show us?
It reveals a history of "boodling!"
We have begun to reproduce that track record going back to the 'Gilded Era' where election fraud was and seems to be still is, as American as apple pie.
It's not as if this subject is silly beyond belief because it is impossible. No, there is a solid track record of "boodling election fraud" in the USA to back it up.
Why do we care?
Well without Brown and Root backing Lyndon Baines Johnson, and assisting George Parr as the "Duke of Duval" to rig the election which helped Johnson to enter the U.S Senate, the question is whether Lyndon Baines Johnson would have become Vice-President? When President John F. Kennedy had his head blown apart at high Noon on a clear day and surrounded by spectators in the middle of a Dallas street, would Lyndon Baines Johnson have become President?
Without Brown and Root there may not have been a REM island offshore radio and television broadcasting operation, and without Brown and Root pioneering in the field of offshore rigs searching for natural gas and petroleum in the North Sea, where would the experience and expertise to exploit those offshore resources have come from?
Yes, Radio Caroline was merely a sampling station - to see how the North Sea would be governed in an age before the UN Law of the Sea had been nationally implemented. Simon Dee was not just playing records on board the mv Fredericia for entertainment while the ship was anchored off England, he was acting out a part that he did not understand.
So when the scoffers sneer and laugh at claims about 2020 Election Fraud, without any court hearing any evidence to point to, and even though America has embraced election fraud going all the way back to the 1800s (and maybe before that), then those same sneering, jeering voices who claim that there is no dark side, no sinister side to the creation of Radio Caroline, are not only just plain wrong, but the sad joke is on them.
Remember this oldie? (Click the image below:)
This Blog is not for trolls and airheads, but for thinking people willing to look at the history of what has happened before; and what happened with Radio Caroline, before taking a serious look at the question of whether the U.S. Election of 2020 was another act of fraud, but this time conducted on a massive scale.
We will continue to reveal what we now know - irrespective of what the mainstream media may say, and apparently what a lot of propaganda chiefs who call themselves historians, may say.
You have the option of just ignoring this Blog, but if you do, it will still be here because it is not depending upon your approval or financial support.
Before the pandemic, you could visit Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to see where the USA was born and where the first First Continental Congress was held on September 5, 1774.
That meeting was conducted in the name of the United Colonies, and those present were about to resist domination by the British Crown in order to demand independence. Their treasonous intentions were couched in secrecy, and their actions had incremental results that began on a hot summer's day in 1776 to create a confederacy of States that would openly defy the colonial political power of the British Crown.
But that first attempt to create a USA failed, and it took until 1789 for it to be recreated, again in secrecy, by forming the federated United States of America. Same name, different system, and all done in secrecy.
Now let's move ahead to this pandemic year of 2020 when the State of Pennsylvania has joined a list of Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, and Wisconsin that are all mired in allegations of electoral voter fraud. Those allegations are all related to claims about modern-day boodling.
That is a subject which gave rise to investigative journalism, which was once labeled as 'muckraking' - by those not wanting to be exposed as fraudsters.
Ironically, it was the exposure of boodling by muckrakers that helped to originally promote the Progressive political movement into action. Their goal was to break the monopolistic power of the Trusts, and in particular the integrated vertical and horizontal connecting operations of John D. Rockefeller's Standard Oil Company.
Well, back then they did smash the outward signs of the monopoly by scattering the pieces just like a glass jar dropped from a height on to a hard kitchen floor. It scatters in pieces. But unlike the glass jar, the pieces of Rockefeller's Trust remained quietly connected by shares, and over time they reassembled themselves into a new configuration.
Boodled political power is like a glass jar that seems to be fragile because it can appear to shatter from the results of an election, and like the analogy of that glass jar, the shattered pieces continue to function by shares, but under alternative configurations. Boodled political power is not for those seeking the limelight to obtain a vanity status. It is for the people who work in the shadows seeking to control vast sums of money from governmental coffers.
This is what our own investigation is ultimately all about.
To understand this process it is necessary to return to the birth of the modern age which emerged in the middle of the Nineteenth Century. Here is a major report from 1903 that appeared in a Pennsylvania newspaper about political graft in the State of Missouri. It is an independent newpaper follow-up to a 1898 expose by magazine muckrakers:
Sometimes, the story that appears to be new, is merely a rehash of a story that has appeared before, but to understand the current version of the same tale, it is necessary to go back and take a second look at the original story. Then you discover that the beginning of the tale that you think is new, has a long and sinister past life.
That is what we are doing with 'Dial 999 for Caroline'. It is also a tale of graft and corruption, and if you revisit our initial video at http://yesterdayneverhappened.com you will note that we first drew your attention to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, and a radio ship called mv Mi Amigo.
Take another look!
Finding the beginning of this story has been very difficult to achieve, and it has also been a very time consuming exercise, which means than it has also been costly in terms of time and money. Therefore, when human rodents scurry around picking up bits of information and leave their published droppings, they also leave infectious misinformation in their wake. To see what we mean, look at the examples illustrated above.
Investigative journalism is a polite rendition of its original branding as 'muckraking'; because 'muckrakers' search for and then reveal information that those who have control of any monopolistic endeavor, don't want their adversaries to discover. They don't want competition.
Following the trail back in time to discover how and why an offshore radio station called 'Caroline' began broadcasting from a ship off the coast of southeast England in 1964, has been a tortuous journey due to false leads and obfuscated documentation. That trail leads back to a time set around the half-way mark of the Nineteenth Century.
It was a time before the commercial potential of the electrical generating capability of oil was understood, and before such generators were even invented. It predates the invention of radio, as that term is now understood, and it also predates the time when commercial recording and playback devices with audio or video applications, joined the printing press to become part of mass media.
We are referring to that so-called 'Gilded Age' between the U.S. Civil War and World War I; that time when some of the wealthy flaunted their acquisitions in the face of the hoi polloi. It was also an era of political corruption, which makes it sound like an earlier version of the way in which some lives are lived today. Then, as today, it was glitz and apparent glamour that concealed the unpleasant methodologies used to create the illusion of utopian lifestyles.
Rigged election claims in the USA today, are nothing new. They also flourished in that 'Gilded Age', and that is when, how and why the muckrakers came into existence. As hard as political movements and some legislators tried to stamp out that kind of behavior in one place, it would spring up in a slightly different form somewhere else.
When we come to 1948 and the election to the US Senate by Lyndon Baines Johnson, we come face to face with a rigged election and corruption in the Lone Star State of Texas. It was Johnson who became the primary beneficiary as a public persona, when John F. Kennedy had his head blown apart at High Noon in 1963, on a Dallas, Texas street. Despite witnesses surrounding the victim on all sides, to this day there has been no definitive explanation for all of the many problems surrounding the official verdict that laid the blame at the feet of one lone individual who gained nothing from Kennedy's death.
The sequential death of Lee Harvey Oswald by Jack Ruby made no sense. So it is with the histories of broadcasting and recorded music, and especially the birth of Radio Caroline which was born in a sequence of events and geographical locations enveloping the death of John F. Kennedy.
The trail leading to the birth of Radio Caroline has been the subject of books and movies, just like the Kennedy Assassination. But none of them make sense, any more than explanations for the killing of John F. Kennedy make sense. When we get to 1964 and address the reason for the birth of Radio Caroline, some, like Paul Rusling continue to pump out absolute rubbish, but obviously he and his companions have enough gullible fools who pay them in order to be mislead by them. Whether Rusling understands what he is doing is debatable, and there is reason to believe that he does not.
That is why we do not promise a quick 'mind-fix' with the results of our investigations into events of yesterday. On the other hand, because we do not wish to sink our story into a mire of endless foot-noting and end-noting, we will be revealing the story here for all to read, but saving the proof for publication in book format.
We promised that 'Dial 999 for Caroline' would appear this year (2020), and if you have been paying attention, you will have noticed that a lot of new information has already been published here on this Blog (for which you have not been asked to make any financial contribution.) All we do ask is that you do not steal our work and then try to repackage it in order to sell it on to those who can be fooled most of the time.
There is a major and obvious difference between this online version and the book version (aside from documentation.) We are not providing a sequential story flow of data. You will have to absorb information and then slot it into your own memory bank in terms of sequencing. The book version will of course follow a traditional time sequence format.
You may wish to go back and discover how much new information we have already revealed. Some of it includes the lives of people like Ian Cowper Ross, about whom we will have much more to report. But we have also begun to tell you about Charles William (Bill) Weaver who had custody of the mv Mi Amigo on behalf a triumvirate of owners in Dallas, Texas. You can access past editions from the archive listing in the column to the right of these words.
Yes, this is a story about 'boodling', a U.S. slang word that seems to have fallen out of favor, but which aptly describes our own investigation which picks up from the work of the original 'muckrakers' - which is what U.S. investigative "citizen reporters" were once called because they unearthed the "muck" that 'polite society' did not want to reveal. It is all about bribery to gain political license to steal: legally!
You can't understand the story of Radio Caroline until you understand the story that laid the foundation for its creation, and the real reason why it was created.
Forget pop music, and forget all of the silly stories that hack writers have fed you (for money), because none of that explains how and why Radio Caroline was created, but we will.
If you are wondering about the the constant flow of news stories about the seemingly wild and unsubstantiated claims by President Donald Trump that the Election of 2020 was stolen by people working to elect Joe Biden, then look no further than here. That story and the story of Radio Caroline are all about 'boodling', and we will offer the proof that everyone in mass media tries to brush aside and pretend that it does not exist.
That proof exists because 'boodling' exists, and as you can see from the definition above, 'boodling' first pops up in the U.S press towards the end of the 1800s. That is when electric power and all of the inventions that it spawned also began to pop up, and without electric power there would be no Radio Caroline.
But what gave Radio Caroline its electric power?
What made those generators generate electricity?
Before electricity came the discovery that petroleum could light homes and in so doing replace the use of whale oil. Then it was discovered that petroleum could do more than provide lighting, it could provide power, and along the line of discovery came those generators that powered up the Continental Electronics transmitters that belted out that jingle ....
"Going back in time on the sound of the nation" ....
On August 6, 1887, 'The Spirit of Kansas', a newspaper published in Topeka, explained the meaning of the word 'boodling' in this column:
Before Charles Dickens published 'David Copperfield' as a book, it was released within 19 monthly instalments between May 1849 and November 1850, and consequently the reference above to "Uriah Heeps" (sic) in the text above, is somewhat topical.
It is also interesting to note that "stealing elections" is a very American practice that was (and is) not confined to a few States, nor to a short period of time. Without a stolen election in 1948, Lyndon Baines Johnson may never have become President of the United States following the murder of John F. Kennedy.
But as in the instance of Lyndon B. Johnson, trying to undo a rigged election due to stuffed ballot boxes is difficult to achieve, as President Donald Trump is now discovering to his dismay, because rigged American elections are as American as apple pie. The only major difference between the US electoral system and the UK electoral system is that in the UK the ballot is permanently rigged in favor of its Crown corporation sole. It becomes an issue in the USA due to its written Constitution which is supposed to represent the will of 'The People', and not the will of a reigning monarch.
Our research continues, but like scenes in a gigantic jigsaw puzzle where some of the scenes had to be discovered before the big picture finally emerged, as we approach the end of 2020 we are now very close to putting the entire scene together.
Now that we know what to look for and what the big story that the jigsaw reveals when complete, we have assembled enough of the pieces to drop some hints to those who think that this is a story about a radio station called 'Caroline'.
It is not.
Neither does the name 'Caroline' in the title refer to the radio station and it certainly does not refer to a child belonging to the Kennedy family. But the trail leading to the demise of President John F. Kennedy is a part of this story, but it is not the focal point.
One person who also comes into this story is Lyndon Baines Johnson who first got elected to the United States Senate via a rigged ballot box number '13'. It is a well documented story that sounds very familiar in light of the 2020 Trump-Biden Election claims. In fact, the 1948 election of Johnson could be the story of Joe Biden "writ large."
You will gasp when you discover how the same money trail behind this rigged election in 1948, eventually resulted in not just the strange story of the mv Mi Amigo, but in the behind-the-scenes story of all North Sea offshore broadcasting up to the year 1964. After that date, until 1967, it took on a brief life of its own, and that is also part of the story.
We will indeed be putting all of the story together and initially allowing our cooperating friends to read it for themselves, more-or-less free of charge, before general publication.
Our own on-the-spot investigation began by serendipity back in the year 1972, because that is when we first began to hear about this story when one of our team became managing editor of a local newspaper in South Texas ....
Our primary interest in Radio Caroline relates to the period prior to 1964 which ends in 1967, and therefore we skimmed the current edition of OEM 202 for information relating to our research.
On page 52 of the 'Terry Bate Interview' by Ray Clark, there is a casual remark attributed to Terry Bate about "a guy called Ross".
He has no first name, but Terry Bate says that he "had a big house in Surrey and a Rolls Royce", and that he was "an English businessman who owned a chunk." (sic)
The time frame of this reference, says Terry Bate, is when Philip Solomon "bought a chunk of Caroline. He puts some money in."
On page 41 is another reference to a person named Ross. This is in the interview with Mike Plumley, who says: "My introduction to Radio Caroline - apart from being a teenage listener in the 60's - was when I met Ian Ross, one of the first investors in the station."
Mike Plumley then adds: "Ian and I were in the clothing business together ...."
Because Paul Rusling has previously stolen some of our some of our research involving Ian Ross, and then twisted it to fit into his own fictitious narrative which he then produced as a vanity publication, it is necessary to address these two references now appearing in OEM 202.
The Terry Bate reference is tied to the involvement of Philip Solomon who made his primary appearance after Allan James Crawford pulled out. It has been falsely claimed that Project Atlanta Limited was broke and that Ronan O'Rahilly bought it out, which is when Philip Solomon is supposed to have entered the picture.
But Project Atlanta Limited did not go broke and Ronan O'Rahilly had no money to buy out anything. In fact, the only company that was actual running Radio Caroline in the UK was Project Atlanta Limited with the assistance of Hengown Limited, and both had been set up when Crawford entered the picture. There never was a company called Caroline Sales Limited, and that fact got Ronan O'Rahilly personally into trouble with the UK Board of Trade who investigated the entire Radio Caroline corporate structure.
So what of "Mr Ross" and "Ian Ross"?
Well, herein the myth-makers have dreamed-up all manner of rubbish and polluted Wikipedia and other sites with their nonsense - the same kind of nonsense spewed out to the gullible by Paul Rusling - for a fee. A true confidence trick.
Years ago we paid a private investigator to tell us who Ian Ross really is. We have told you this before: Ian Ross is Ian Cowper Ross and his father is Charles Edward Ross and his mother's first name is Phyllis.
Ian Cowper Ross was born in London and later, when his father moved into a house at Hindhead which had been part of a bigger estate which was then broken up by the owner, Charles Edward Ross moved in - for a time.
UPDATE! Editorial Correction since writing and posting the original copy: Charles Edward Ross was employed by a dry-cleaning company that was originally based in Scotland, and which after extensive franchising it moved its home office to Chelsea, London. The company floated its shares via an old-established merchant bank called Close Brothers. Its later equipment seems to have come from a manufacturer of dry-cleaning equipment that sheltered under the holding company called Norcros, which was owned by John Sheffield and he called his operation Norcros. That name came from the combination of the names of two English villages where near to Sheffield's home.
Norcros Limited was a financial hub which Sheffield used to raise collective capital by using the combined assets of several companies. For a time, Norcros also absorbed a Birmingham company called Jensen Cars Limited when they were in financial trouble. As far as we now know, there was no business connection between the Jensen company and Charles Edward Ross.
Norcros also had a subsidiary company called Southcros. Jocelyn Stevens bought shares in that company and became one of its directors. Stevens married the daughter of Sheffield. It seems more than possible that both Sheffield and Stevens knew of Charles Edward Ross because of the dry-cleaning business connection to Norcros.
This familiarity probably accounts for the way in which Ian Cowper Ross came to have control of an expensive Jensen car, even though he was still in his teens and totally irresponsible. Charles' teenage son Ian first wrecked a vintage motorbike, and then he wrecked a Jensen car in a head-on collision. He almost lost his foot in the accident, and after surgery his friends called him 'Flipper', due to its deformed state.
Ian Cowper Ross also ended up in court as a result of his reckless driving. His dad, from what we have uncovered, seems to have also had his appearances in court by driving a Rolls Royce under the influence of alcohol. In other words, he was a drunk driver. But in that brief window of opportunity where all that glitters is not gold, and where appearances are deceptive, C. E. Ross moved into a big house in Hindhead near Haslemere, Surrey.
that big house and at the time, he had access to a Rolls Royce and a Jensen car. It made Charles Edward Ross look as if he was very wealthy, and one of his two sons named Ian, made the most of this deception. Even the Jensen car company was disgorged from Norcros and it eventually went into liquidation. Ian's parents seem to have parted company and Charles Edward ended back in Haslemere, intestate.
Now what of Ian Cowper (Flipper) Ross?
Well about the time that Allan James Crawford exited from Caroline, and Philip Solomon moved in, which was in the same sort of time frame that the mv Mi Amigo ran aground at Frinton, Ian left and went into a series of boutique businesses with several other people. In other words he flitted about London.
However, the main driving force (pardon the pun) in Ian's mind, was a quest to get married into aristocracy, and this is exactly what Ian managed to do - twice. Once via his wife's family, and once into the family attached to his sister-in-law. It was by these connections that a most bizarre chain of events unraveled which anoraks have never heard from anyone, but which explain a lot that they don't know about Radio Caroline.
Now an update on 'Dial 999 for Caroline'.
We thought that our investigation had more-or-less turned up all that could be discovered, but we were wrong.
In addition to the story of Ian Cowper Ross which will be explained in the book, we have now had the fortune of receiving unpublished documents that help to explain another mystery involving Texas and the pre-Caroline story of the mv Mi Amigo.
Not only did this trail lead us back to Texas, but it also led us to take deeper look at the relationship between the Mi Amigo and Robert Kennedy, and the murder of his brother on November 22, 1963.
But there is more!
In an interview by Dave Cash on BBC Radio Kent, Tony Benn was asked point-blank about our work relating to Herbert W. Armstrong; the European Union and the offshore radio stations. Benn played coy and dumb. He said "I did not know that" and remarked that "nothing would surprise me".
Well Tony Benn came with his own American baggage that did not hail from Texas, but from Ohio.
Her name is Caroline!
While Caroline Benn, a US citizen, tried to keep her head down and out of the newspaper headlines, it was Caroline Benn who linked to JFK politics and it was Caroline Benn who led the charge into wrecking the Tory hold on UK government during the UK General Election of October 1964.
We are collecting more evidence and it will also be forthcoming in the book.
Like the man once said, "You ain't heard nothing, yet!"
Here is a post by Malcolm Smith who calls himself Peter Moore, who is otherwise known as the new owner of a rusting hulk called 'Ross Revenge', and a tin pot tiny radio station calling itself 'Caroline', and who has posted the following about Ronan O'Rahilly on this anorak web Forum:
"Posted by Peter Moore on 15/12/2020, 16:09:10
Hello, I am told that the film Girl On A Motorcycle is to be shown this Friday 18th at 10pm on a channel called Talking Pictures. I don't know what that is but I am sure you can find it.
Ronan was Executive Producer, which is a sort of honorary title. His other films were Universal Soldier of which I can find no trace and Gold ' A Movie About The New American Dream '. Of this film which was supposed to be a political satire, he admitted that it descended in to chaos as he the actors and crew were taking L.S.D. In fact he took great delight in telling me that at a private screening the financial backer was physically sick on seeing how his money had been used/wasted.
As for' Girl ' he described it as a towering piece of avant garde film making. Marianne Faithful described it as ' that terrible piece of rubbish that put me off movies for life '. But a critic later said that he was a young boy on first seeing the picture and that the sight of Marianne on a cycle and clad in black leather was the first time he realised the effect girls had on boys. The lead actress was supposed to be an American starlet who had submitted to the casting couch in order to get the role, but Ronan outsmarted her mentor. But he did find to his horror that Alain Delon the lead actor was managed by the Mafia.
Anyhow, watch and judge for yourself.
By now, the question of events that actually happened between the years 1959 and 1964 concerning the birth of Radio Caroline, should be a settled matter. But that is not the case.
Instead there is a celebrity cult issue undermining it.
That cult involves the person of Ronan O'Rahilly, around whom everything swirls.
It has religious overtones that not only confuses the issue, but they cloud the issue.
The reason is that Ronan O'Rahilly had nothing to do with the creation of Radio Caroline, apart from clouding the issue and misleading everyone who wants to know what happened.
Cult theories seem to begin with prejudicial political beliefs, and not with an open academic mind willing to try the evidence as if it was being placed before a jury to decide. While miscarriages of justice do take place where a judge or member of a jury has been bribed or blackmailed, by and large the system works. But not so with cases that remain 'unsolved' due to vested interests not wanting a final verdict to be rendered.
The origin of Radio Caroline is one such case.
It could become a settled matter quite easily, and a final verdict rendered as to what happened in fact, but until everyone who is remotely connected to Ronan O'Rahilly is deceased, and their children are deceased, that probably is not going to happen: which is not to say that the information that is known should not be published.
We believe that the real story needs to be told, and that is what we are now beginning to do by putting the bigger picture in context in an outline format. You can read an overview of this outline in yesterday's Blog.
Many have wondered what it is that Mervyn Hagger is attempting to do. Well, he outlined it today on another Forum in response to the republication of a book about the Assassination of John F. Kennedy, and the new publicity created by Bob Dylan with his eponymous song: 'Murder Most Foul'.
Here is Mervyn Hagger's explanation:
I began researching the origins of British commercial broadcasting which all trailed back to Gordon McLendon in Dallas, but then that trail led me to Charles Weaver who supervised sales on all of the McLendon stations. He also managed KILT in Houston and a ship named Mi Amigo docked in Galveston which had been anchored off Stockholm, Sweden as Radio Nord.
Weaver claimed that it had been a CIA 'front' station serving as a listening post in the Baltic Sea. It began and ended while Lee Harvey Oswald was at work in Minsk.
Also running through the backbone of our investigation was a Jewish lawyer named Stanley R. Rader. He ran the Christian organization fronted by Herbert W. Armstrong whose polemical monologues appeared on many CIA 'front' stations (including Radio Americas ex-Radio Swan). Armstrong's 'The World Tomorrow' with its 'prescient' warnings beginning in the 1950s over Radio Luxembourg and then all of the main British 'pop pirates' of the Sixties, concerned 'Climate Change' and 'Brexit', and that was long before these issues ever came to the attention of most people alive today.
As I continued to investigate (my first half page feature in a UK paper appeared in 1966), my travels took me to Texas where I personally met William Colby who was by then an attorney assisting the founder of the largest 'pop pirate' stations of the Sixties. His name is Don Pierson and he eventually turned over his archives to me. Pierson was a Texan mentored by Gordon McLendon, and Pierson's offshore radio stations caused the Crown to shut them down with a draconian censorship law. The Crown then forced the BBC to create a clone of Pierson's Radio London with BBC Radio One, sans Herbert W. Armstrong.
McLendon's Radio Nord off Sweden in the Baltic Sea was financed by Clint Murchison Jr and run by Robert F. Thompson, with Bill Weaver cleaning up the mess. After Radio Nord closed down, its ship was sent to Galveston in March 1963, and then on to England where it became Radio Atlanta. (McLendon went to High School in Atlanta, Texas and practiced his craft over a stadium loudspeaker system during high school sports.)
But the trail then led me to focus upon REM island, an offshore home to Dutch radio and television stations which had been built on a modified Venezuelan oil platform by Brown and Root (Haliburton), with the help of a former German SS officer.
So I have kept on digging and publishing our exploits by writing for various journals. (See http://foundthreads.com).
Now the trail has led me to discover the real cause of all of these activities:
The UN Law of the Sea and national implementation by member governments.
In the early Sixties, Britain's 'quality press' came very close to publishing the real story behind the so-called 'pirate' offshore stations of the 'Swinging Sixties'. The first of these offshore stations (Radio Caroline) was initially designed to test British reaction, because behind the scenes was an elaborate plan to stage Wild West type undersea grabs of the continental shelves upon which West European nations resided. The goal was to claim the wealth of natural gas and then oil.
As it turned out, the West European nations tolerated the radio ships, but REM island attached to the sea floor led to a raid by Dutch air and sea special forces to close it down!
The oil capital was Houston, Texas and all lines point back from North Sea gas and oil to Houston.
There is a very interesting case to be made about the constant Armstrong-style warnings of 'Climate Change' (sans the cloak of religion), which has now taken hold of mainstream media, because it appears to be but a part of a huge political and monetary war to shift the power base of the USA from Texas to California with so-called 'renewable energy'.
To do this gas and oil have to be killed off so that Silicon Valley can replace Houston, Texas which originally shot to importance with the help from the 'Duke of Duval' (County), in order to create the rigged first election of Lyndon Baines Johnson. This was the cause that the 'Good Ole Boys' in Room 8F began to champion as a means of turning Houston into not only the oil capital of the USA, but into its real political power base as well. Houston controlled Washington DC.
It all began in WWII when Churchill brought in a super secret team of Texans to drill for oil in England (which they did successfully.)
The UK oil and gas fields stretched offshore, but in those days there was no way to reach and exploit them. Then, after WWII cheap gas from Texas, Persia, Saudi Arabia, etc., flooded the world market.
Churchill (who is half-American and half-English), was a champion of the British Empire, and long before he became Prime Minister he was championing the notion that the Illuminati were behind the overthrow of the Russian monarch. There were, wrote Churchill, "good Jews" (nationalists like Disraeli), and "bad Jews (internationalists like the founders of the communist USSR). Yes, before Joe McCarthy was Winston Churchill, and Edward R. Murrow would go on to officially head up US Propaganda dissemination.
The yesterday everyone thinks that they can recall, never happened. Eric Blair sitting in his lonely farmhouse on the island of Jura was right: memories are often fake because they have been falsely engineered. The eponymous but fictitious Winston of '1984' came to learn that lesson the hard way, thanks to Mr Orwell.
Among our own writings we published this document some years ago: http://foundthreads.com/04.html
It is called 'Citizen or Subject', and the issue now being brought before the US Supreme Court relating to the last US Election (Trump v Biden) seems to be a child of this same reasoning, and for our own enlightenment we owe our own insight to NY attorney Francis X. Hennessy.
It will be very interesting to see if this (Trump v Biden) case results in another version of the Twenty-First Amendment writ large.
The bottom line for me is that by following just the facts; not the conjectures or the prejudices of some, I am discovering where the truth about 'yesterday' really resides, because it is surely time for questions about November 22, 1963 to be finally laid to rest.
The 'fake' news of today is but yesterday's news retold with a deliberately tarnished obfuscation, part true and part fiction.
This is why I am interested in the book 'Murder Most Foul' because of the questions it once raised, and now raised once again by its republication with publicity from Bob Dylan.
