He's not back in the news, but he should be, because of the story now breaking today. What we want to know is: Who was Allan James Crawford? Was he a CIA or MI6 operative, or was he representing some other 'Deep State' organization? We do know that he was not just a music publisher who wanted to start an offshore station called 'Radio Atlanta'!
Because at the very center of the storm now breaking in newspapers today, is Allan James Crawford. Back in 1975 he was on the front page of the Australian daily press, and that was "back in the day".
But what "day" was that?
It was during the Vietnam War when Australia had thrown in its lot with the USA and giant CIA bases were operating out of the Outback and on the Western coastline of Australia.
This is the same Allan James Crawford who begat Radio Caroline and used Ronan O'Rahilly as his agent who he sent to Houston, Texas in June 1963.
Then that same Ronan O'Rahilly just 'popped-up' in the office of Jocelyn Stevens with his young buddies Ian Cowper Ross and Christopher Moore to begin the pretense that they had nothing to do with Allan James Crawford.
But of course that was a lie, and it is the big lie that we are in the process of unmasking. When this news story broke today we decided to cover it - again! Yes, back on 5/29/2020 we ran a story titled: "Why we have no time for trolls".
On our Comments forum the trolls keep trying to post their own rubbish, but now that we have a very strict policy against troll-type posts, they don't get on line. But yesterday, in addition to one from a whiner who even tried to blackmail us some time ago, another post came from a troll who wanted to know why we were bothering to include the U.S. Supreme Court interpretation of what a company is. The troll seemed to think that this is an exclusively British story.
Well, it's not!
The answer to the troll's gripe has to do with content within context, and in this instance it is because the O'Rahilly family is really half-American with some English blood mixed in for good measure. Going back from Ronan to his father, and Ronan's grandfather, we find a family that is half-American and half-Irish. In the instance of Ronan's dad, who was born in England and lived in Ireland, well, as you will soon learn, he got a chunk of change from U.S. taxpayers on the basis of a business proposal that he changed, after he got the money!
So what has any of this got to do with Greenore?
The answer is that it has everything to do with Greenore which actually emerged from obscurity thanks to the generosity of the United States of America for rebuilding the nations of Europe after World War II. That is how Ronan's dad got his money for Greenore. Not only that, but Ireland was included in this USA financial bail-out, even though Ireland was a "neutral" nation (leaning in the Allied direction), during the War years.
With Crawford turning out to be a real mystery man who is mired in deep-state geopolitics, and Ronan O'Rahilly acting as his stooge, it becomes really important to know who actually owned the assets of those radio ships used by Radio Caroline, and who owned the port facility where they were partially outfitted for broadcasting purposes. We have been assembling a lot of new material that you will not have seen before. It explains just how Ronan's father got involved with Greenore.
We will be revealing who actually bought it and how they bought it, and where the money came from.
In the meantime, check out this interesting story .... https://www.theage.com.au/national/how-the-loans-scandal-became-an-affair-to-remember-20050101-gdzadn.html because at its core is Allan James Crawford who died in obscurity in Wales, UK. His companion in the loans scandal who put Allan James Crawford on the front pages of Australia's daily newspapers, was Tirath Hassaram Khemlani, and guess what? He died in obscurity in Scotland, UK.
Well, this is where obscurity ends for all of them, including Aodogán O'Rahilly and the company known as Weatherwell Ltd., which he managed. Aodogán O'Rahilly did this with help from the U.S. government and its generous taxpayers, and although Aodogán O'Rahilly has gone into the anorak history books as the owner of the port at Greenore, like most things in those books, it is not true at all.
Part 8 of the Nightmare at Greenore continues here tomorrow.
