Last year, before Paul Rusling decided to betray a friendship and steal some of our research and then publish a garbled version of it under his own name and call it 'The Radio Caroline Bible', a member of 'The Trio' participated on a Forum about offshore radio.
The person running that Forum made our member an Administrator of his Board, while he also dumped the trolls who were also on his Forum. He called them members of "The Church of Caroline".
Central to their belief system is a myth that Ronan O'Rahilly was the creator of Radio Caroline.
Right now I won't reproduce the private emails that the owner of that Forum sent to us, but I will point out that Paul Rusling is an Administrator of that Forum upon which is an advertisement for his fake story. That site is now populated mainly by gullible trolls who hide behind 'user names'; many with multiple fake identities.
The reason for mentioning this now, has to do with my last post on this Blog, and one prior to that in which I explained why we are known as 'YesterTecs'. It is because we try to follow a synthesized formula of academic research and "good old-fashioned police detective work" as the basis for our own investigations.
One of the foundational problems that we have encountered is something that Joseph Goebells came to understand in aiding and abetting the German National Socialists (Nazis) to establish their grip on the human mindset. In many instances that grip was achieved by young people with young women being to the fore.
To see what I mean about hero worship, just watch the 1935 Nazi movie called 'Triumph of the Will' (English title), which is available online at: https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6uajey
As with all fake propaganda it is usually surrounded at the edges by a degree of fact, and that is what makes it believable - to some.
Metropolitan Police were convinced that Arnold Swanson's GBOK was a fake scheme by a confidence trickster to solicit money from investors. Swanson led would-be financial backers into thinking that he had money previously made by him from being the inventor of the car seat belt, among other things.
In reality, Swanson was a former vacuum cleaner salesman who married a lady from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, whose father had died and left her a fortune he made from a shipping line. Swanson's wife eventually divorced and exposed him after he was exposed in court for having sex with underage girls.
Therefore in trying to expose how Radio Caroline sprang to life on March 27, 1964, it is necessary to explain what actually happened, and not what everyone has been led to believe had happened. This is the reason for going back in time to see how Ronan O'Rahilly was promoted by the press as the creator of Radio Caroline.
The mythology has been repeated so often over the years that now we are well beyond the first generation that began spinning his lies and deceit. Not only is Ronan O'Rahilly now dead, but so is the Pye Group of companies that he was really working for in those early days.
In addition to 'Triumph of the Will', you should also watch 'An Honest Liar', which is a 2014 documentary about James Randi. He was a former magician and escape artist that began investigating fake claims by so-called psychics; faith healers, and con-artists.
No matter how many times the fraudsters are exposed, the masses continue to believe them. The same is true of the fraudsters behind 'The Church of Caroline' who con gullible trolls to support it with their money, time and contributory labor.
Therefore we will now proceed to take apart the various elements and people who brought Ronan O'Rahilly to the attention of the mass media as the false messiah behind the creation of Radio Caroline.
