Although this Blog has moved on since it was initially begun in response to the theft by Paul Alexander Rusling with 'The Radio Caroline Bible' that incorporated published and copyrighted material in the 'Caroline Newsletter'; and it has taken until June 1, 2020 at 8:26 am (BST) for him to respond, and his attempted defense demands a response.
Rusling was actually responding in a thread begun by a troll who has tried to blackmail us into kowtowing to his demands. We refused. Here is what the troll wrote. It was posted by Scottg on May 31, 2020, 8:19 pm:
"Then (Radio) Atlanta merged with Jocelyn Stevens 'Radio Caroline', and it was decided to steer clear of both politics and religion, since the original 'Radio Caroline' (Jocelyn Stevens) plan was aimed at trying to overturn the 'Pilkington Report' with its finding on commercial radio. That was not the original plan for 'Radio Atlanta'." (The World Tomorrow broadcasts were scheduled to be broadcast, but because of delays, Project Atlanta Ltd had run out of money). I hope that this clears up the eternal controversy. ie. one common business (formation) plan, two individual groups, and it never was one joint project. NB. The words and sentences quoted are non-copyright and nothing has been 'nicked' from anyone's research or investigation. Scottg."
This is more rubbish from a blackmailing troll called Scottg whose aim seems to be to support the plagiarizing and uninformed ambitions of Paul Alexander Rusling who then posted this on June 1, 2020 at 8:26 am in the same thread begun by Scottg:
"You can’t ‘steal’ a fact. The courts have upheld that even a theory isn’t intellectual property unless it’s published."
Paul Alexander Rusling clearly is thrashing around and trying to stop himself from drowning in lies and betrayal of the trust once placed with him by 'The Trio'.
We are not going to get into a protracted and idiotic fight with a loon and his side-kick the blackmailing troll. Both are trying to support lies which are being daily unmasked. Once unmasked the lies cannot go back to being shrouded in the mystery of "I didn't know that". But that is what happens when lies are stripped bare and the liars are revealed for what they are.
It matters not how many times this blackmailer named Scottg wants to claim that Atlanta and Caroline were two different projects, because the fact is that Ronan O'Rahilly was sent as an errand boy to Houston, Texas by Allan James Crawford.
Crawford had previously failed to get his original Radio Atlanta station on the air from the THV Satellite. The first working studio address for Radio Caroline was at 47 Dean Street, and that was the home of Project Atlanta Limited, which was not registered until the return of O'Rahilly from Houston. But still there was no real money.
The money did not appear until late in 1963 when Charles Orr Stanley of the Pye Group of companies got involved. At the same time, the remnants of the GBOK project were also folded into this single venture and it was then joined by several big money backers with strong ties to the British Establishment. But before the southern ship was allowed to go on the air, the northern ship had to pass a survive-ability test.
We revealed the basic of that in the video that is online at http://radiocaroline.info and it is there for you to watch free of charge. That video was made before Rusling decided to steal, and the video makes it plain that until 'The Trio' began to reveal this secret trip that Ronan O'Rahilly never spoke about, no one else knew that it had taken place in June 1963, or even why it had taken place.
The reason why 'The Trio' knew is because of a meeting with both Bill Weaver and Glenn Callison who told a member of 'The Trio' about it and where Ronan O'Rahilly stayed in Houston, and even that he bought a pair of cowboy boots while there. Then Rusling decided to steal this previously published and copyright work and claim it for himself. He acknowledges in his ridiculous cult book that is full of truths and half truths and downright lies, that O'Rahilly made this trip. But there is only one way for him to know this, and that is from previously published and copyright material published by 'The Trio'.
Now a brief word about yet another babbling troll named Fred Bramley. He thinks that we learned everything we know from him, and a book he mentioned whose author he names as Ian Cowper Ross. But the only reason he knows the middle name of Ian Ross is because we bought a copy of the marriage license of Ian Ross after hiring and paying for the services of a private detective. By the way Fred, it is not a hyphenated name. It is a middle name. We know a lot about Ian Cowper Ross, and what we know, we will eventually reveal. When we do, Fred Bramley and his tribe of trolls are going to look very stupid indeed, not they that do not already qualify for the title of the "Dumbest of the Dumb". They do.
So simply put: Paul Alexander Rusling is both a liar and a thief because of what he has now written and claimed to have published on line.
This is not a joke. It is not funny. 'The Trio' have spent decades in time and thousands in dollars investigating the events that resulted in Radio Caroline from 1964-1967 and its lingering death in 1968. Rusling thinks he can steal and no one will complain. Rusling is very, very mistaken.
The silly part is that we have offered to forgive and forget if Paul Alexander Rusling admits what he has done and says "sorry". But instead, he has published this:
"At the end of the day only “those who were there and did the deed” really know. Some of them told me and the tales invariably matched up, I simply edited, rewrite it chronologically and sorted out the wheat from the chaff, the dreams from the actuality and ignored the flim-flam. The research was meticulous and culled from many sources, acknowledged in the book, and my own library of 1100 books. They were cross-referenced with contemporaneous notes going back to 1966 when I first became interested, not to mention all manner of ‘anoraknabilia’ which many know I have hoarded."
We have a copy of Rusling's poorly proof-read book with its many half-tones that failed to reproduce or were stretched to the point of being distortions. His statement above is a lie in and of itself. As for his claim to a library of "1100 books", Rusling has plainly stated that he does not read; does not research and has no interest in history! So which is it? The answer is more lies upon existing lies! But he continues:
"Trying to re-invent the wheel is just trampling on the reputation of a man who made the British Offshore radio phenomenon happen and prolonged it, no matter who paid for it. When you dig a kind of music, you don’t dig around for who paid for it. Many musicians resorted to dubious dealings to get their gear - or even stole it. No one really cares. Many on here like buses and trains but would find it utterly ridiculous fir anyone to want to expose the pioneers and founders as rogues who used quasi-legal ways of raising finance or getting the necessary bills thru parliament."
I guess this is what a person who admits that he does not read books or do research would say, because if he thinks that no one ever wrote a book to expose Adolph Hitler; or Henry Ford; or Andrew Carnegie; or Bill Clinton or Barak Obama, well I guess that Paul Alexander Rusling would write the rubbish that he has just written to support a man who seems to have encouraged strife and theft, and murder involving his own disastrous projects which turned peace in Ireland into the bloodshed of 'The Troubles'. But Rusling continues with even more nonsense:
"Just what is this obsession with the unlikely and unproven claims of a bitter old man who cross-dresses and has zero credibility or friends in the business? The Caroline call-sign is an enduring spirit that many love and want to feel part of. Over a thousand have proven their interest by buying the bible, a collection of stories by those who RAN Caroline, who know the true story and wanted the truth published. It has been, without lurid conspiracy theories, wild speculation or puerile nastiness and venom. (I vented a touch of that on free radio’s true enemies- Wilson, Short, Stonehouse and Thorpe)."
Rusling now resorts to a form of speech that actually gets into a form of hate speech by implying that one person is behind this research and that person "cross-dresses".
Now we have already been down that road with other idiotic trolls such as 'Maldonian' (who is also ashamed to reveal his true identity.) 'Maldonian' eventually admitted that 'The Trio' - count that - three (3) people are the core of this project to which a fourth (4th) has now been added. Then the trolls suggested the 4th (me) did not exist and that it was really one of 'The Trio'. But then, someone found a picture of me on a commercial retail site and 'outed' me as being the daughter of a member of 'The Trio'. So I explained that I was also involved in theater and related activities and had a stage name, and not wanting to confuse one aspect of my life with another aspect of my life, I am who I say that I am next to my picture at the top of this page. 'Maldonian' and 'Scottg' won't do that. They are cowards and hypocrites refusing to do what they demand of others!
Now we come to the icing on Rusling's cake. Because long before Rusling decided to steal published and copyrighted material for his plagiarized 'bible', one member of 'The Trio' began his publishing career as an accredited journalist (member of the National Union of Journalists and associate member of the Foreign Press Association and other institutions) way back on June 27, 1966 with the same newspaper for which he wrote this feature.
That was a few years before Rusling even thought about stealing. Rusling doesn't even begin to understand the meaning of the word plagiarism; or theft of it seems copyright protection, because he then wrote this drivel concerning his post:
"The above is copyrighted material once published here; I assert my rights to remain so and do not authorise it’s use on other publications, electronic or otherwise, without permission. (Simply because I don’t want my words twisted by some bitter old man masquerading as a teenage girl.)"
If Paul Alexander Rusling or those caring for him wish to state that he is a very confused person who has difficulty in determining my age; in his lack of reading ability; his failure to comprehend; his anti-social behavior where he refuses to tell the truth, and his want for betraying friendships and other self-centered behavior at the expense of others, we will accept that as being true. Perhaps it all stemmed from his association in the 1970s with the doyen of lies and deceit named Ronan O'Rahilly?
In any event, it seems that Paul Alexander Rusling has just nailed shut his own coffin of confusion firmly shut with himself inside it.
Now we will continue with our research assisted by many kind and helpful people in the real world who for all we know may be cross-dressers. But, if they are, well it's none of our business because they have been very courteous towards us, and we see no reason for behaving badly towards them.
I think that it is obvious that I am not a teen, but that I am dressing according to my natural gender, but what is with his mixing-bowl fringed haircut, and what exactly is he wearing underneath his outer garments?
Not that I really care, because it is none of my business what he does, except that is, when he engages in smash and grab thievery and I am one of his victims.
Then, he does solicit my attention.
But, when all is said and done, he has made himself look stupid, not me. So our offer of peace and reconciliation is still on the table. Of course, he could not continue with his present line of lying and stealing if we accept his apology.
