Tomorrows "Thought For The Day" will come from Joe Biden. Joe only has one thought each day so please give him a warm welcome. His current plan is to discuss "the thing, you know the thing, dar-nit." He has no plans to discuss children touching his hairy legs again, so please journalists, no questions on that matter.

From Wikipedia: Anthony Stephen Fauci (/ˈfaʊtʃi/; born December 24, 1940) is an American physician-scientist and immunologist who serves as the director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and the chief medical advisor to the president.
As a physician with the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Fauci has served the American public health sector in various capacities for more than 50 years, and has acted as an advisor to every U.S. president since Ronald Reagan. He became director of the NIAID in 1984 and has made contributions to HIV/AIDS research and other immunodeficiency diseases, both as a research scientist and as the head of the NIAID. From 1983 to 2002, Fauci was one of the world's most frequently-cited scientists across all scientific journals. In 2008, President George W. Bush awarded Fauci the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian award in the United States, for his work on the AIDS relief program PEPFAR.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Fauci was one of the lead members of President Donald Trump’s White House Coronavirus Task Force. In the early stages of the pandemic, The New Yorker and The New York Times described Fauci as one of the most trusted medical figures in the United States. Currently Fauci is the Chief Medical Advisor to President Joe Biden, officially appointed in 2021.
So we have one of the worlds most influential 'experts' on the Covid 19 pandemic. A man whose influence on policy making around the world regarding Coronavirus cannot be understated. The above are just two of his emails just disclosed under a freedom of information request.
He new that Hydroxychloroquine used with Zinc was a successful treatment being used in China as early as March 2020. This is a readily available and cheap drug used on mass for treating Malaria. It was clearly working as a treatment for Covid 19.
So what happened did he forget? How many billions have the big Pharmacy companies made creating a new vaccine? The remedy was there and a whole lot cheaper so what happened? As they say in the USA do the math. Some bloke called Donald Trump tweeted that Hydroxychloroquine worked. How did the media respond to that?
Oh and masks and their protecting you? The more you know eh?
Now do you see how the mainstream media including BBC news works? They are all part of the establishment propagating their agenda and brainwashing millions with their lies.
What continues to be so important about Rockall?

Is there any tangible connection between Radio Caroline in the 1960's and the subsequent Radio stations that have used that name? When Caroline closed in 1968 and it became evident that there was no chance of a return Ronan O'Rahilly quickly involved himself in other matters. The Irish Times obituary for him has a brief yet reasonably concise summary as seen below. It does miss out on the Caroline TV hoax, however an article in The Birmingham Post from March 1970 demonstrates how Ronan O'Rahilly believed in the operation at that time and in usual form exuded an air of positive optimism. The idea of Caroline TV first surfaced in May 1966 when the Cheeta 2 (which was equipped with TV broadcasting facilities) was loaned to Radio Caroline whilst the Mi Amigo underwent repairs and refurbishment. When it became clear that Caroline TV existed only in the imagination, Ronan continued with his film productions.
Irish Times. May 2nd 2020.
O’Rahilly ventured into films himself as executive producer of two 1968 productions: The Girl on a Motorcycle, memorably starring the singer Marianne Faithfull as a newlywed clad in black leather on a visit to her former lover, and Two Virgins, a short accompanying John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s avant-garde album of that title.
He also made Universal Soldier (1971), featuring George Lazenby as a mercenary in Africa. It came two years after Lazenby’s starring role as James Bond in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, which not only flopped, but was notable for O’Rahilly having disastrously advised Lazenby – whom he managed – not to sign a seven-film deal because he doubted that the 007 craze would last.
His last attempt at feature film production was Gold (1972), a hippy story influenced by the counterculture of Easy Rider.
The Birmingham Post. 13 March 1970.
Mr. O’Rahilly, in the great tradition of pirates, is a very elusive chap. But when I finally contacted him at an office in London this week he told me: “I have bought two Constellation aircraft and we shall be on the air by the end of the summer.”
He claims to have already taken 600,000 dollars [about $4m in today’s money, allowing for inflation] worth of advertising and arrangements are in hand for engaging crews for the aircraft. Mr. O’Rahilly feels he is not contravening the 1964 Act, which is aimed at stopping anyone in the United Kingdom supplying goods, financing or placing advertising with a pirate station.
“British companies are not placing advertisements with us,” he said. “The advertisements are from foreign firms who manufacture goods sold in Britain. Ronan O'Rahilly “The planes will be based on the Continent – I’m not saying which country – and the programme material is being bought from the United States and other foreign countries.”
Some of the programmes will, in fact, have been made in Britain but Caroline will buy them through Continental firms. The planes can stay aloft for 19 hours, but will only be needed to circle over the North Sea for eight hours at a stretch. “You should be able to get Television Caroline in Birmingham. I reckon we can cover up to 80 per cent of the country,” says Mr. O’Rahilly.
The programmes – in colour and on 625-line UHF – will have a pop style basis, but will not be all pop shows. “There will be talk shows and serials, and a two-hour pop spectacular every night.” The broadcasts are technically possible. The Americans have already run successful television transmissions from aircraft. Mr. O’Rahilly says that the station has cost “a lot of money to set up” but declines to say just how much. If Caroline Television does get off the ground – and Mr. O’Rahilly is determined it will – then an immediate anti-aircraft barrage (legal not physical) can be expected from the Government.
So what about Radio Caroline International in 1970 from the Mebo2?
The two owners of RNI Edwin Bollier and Erwin Meister approached Ronan O'Rahilly to use the Caroline name and five days before the UK general election they switched to Radio Caroline International. Already campaigning vigorously against Harold Wilson and supporting a large free radio demonstration in London O'Rahilly along with Simon Dee (whose career was in a downward spiral) gained the wrath of the Labour Party. Despite the apparent success of all this activity (see the article from The Offshore Radio Museum below) the pair would also have made themselves enemies of the British establishment.
Simon Dee had a knack for upsetting senior management losing his TV career both at BBC and LWT as a result. However he was under the impression that he was under some form of surveillance when he became involved with Ronan again. This is quite possible and would also suggest O'Rahilly was a likely candidate for the attention of Special Branch or MI5. In reality allowing the use of the Caroline name was really just a limited publicity stunt by RNI, the station had not really returned and switched back to RNI after the election was over. The original Radio Caroline had no logical connection with this publicity stunt and like Caroline TV it came and went in moments. Ronan O'Rahilly would however be firmly on the radar of the British Government and their various agencies. The ripple effect of this ensured the Dutch would outlaw offshore radio ending Radio Veronica's days at sea. Offshore radio was now a real problem for governments and the rules of engagement would begin to change.

The Labour Government in Britain had called a General Election for 18th June 1970 and on 1st June Edwin Bollier, announced that RNI would close the day after the election if the Labour Party were returned to power. At the same time he also announced the immediate closure of the unsuccessful German Service, which the station had tried to sustain since it came on the air earlier in the year.
Listeners tuning in to RNI's transmissions on 13th June 1970 were surprised to hear the station using the call sign Radio Caroline International. The owners of RNI had come to an agreement with Caroline’s founder, Ronan O'Rahilly, that they would mount an intensive anti-Labour Party campaign in the days immediately before the General Election. The use of Radio Caroline's name would, it was thought, have more impact with listeners.Radio Caroline bus June 1970
Key marginal constituencies in London and the south east of England were targeted while a continuous stream of anti-Labour propaganda was broadcast by the station in the run up to election day.
A campaign bus, with Free Radio slogans and photographs of 'Chairman Wilson' toured marginal constituencies in the south east of England promoting the station and denouncing the fact that the Labour Government had authorised the jamming of its transmissions.
An important link in rallying supporters during this campaign was the Free Radio Association (FRA), which was still operated by Geoffrey Pearl from Rayleigh in Essex. The FRA provided facilities in the form of telephone numbers and addresses through which listeners could contact the station in response to on air appeals for help distributing campaign leaflets, stickers etc.
On 16th June 1970, just two days before the General Election, Prime Minister Harold Wilson personally authorised the use of the most powerful transmitter in Europe - a one megawatt facility kept for use in a national emergency - to jam RNI's signal.
Against all opinion poll predictions the Labour Party lost the General Election on 18th June 1970, with many marginal seats in London and the south east being gained by the Conservative Party. Although almost impossible to quantify it is virtually certain, and now generally accepted by political historians, that the campaign mounted by RNI/Caroline during the run up to election day had a significant impact on the result of the 1970 General Election, particularly in those in London and south east marginal constituencies.
Much has already been written on yesternoir.org regarding the origins of the original Radio Caroline. Mervyn has kindly shared some additional information with me in private (and unlike others it will remain that way) which really does support the details that have already been published through Caroline Brooks (yes she does exist as do the other people Mervyn has named). Their research is detailed or forensic as they say, the attention to detail impressive and the results have changed my understanding of events in the 1960's completely. As a lover of truth I am quite happy to be corrected and educated, it's healthy for the mind and body.
All of this has led me to consider the following. Is there any tangible connection between Radio Caroline in the 1960's and the subsequent Radio stations that have used that name? In addressing that question I include my own interactions with Ronan O'Rahilly (who I first met in 1977) and those involved with Radio Caroline from the late 1980's onwards.
So we have Radio Caroline which began broadcasting in 1964 and was damaged by the Marine Offenses Act in August 1967 however remained on air largely through Payola until March 1968 when the ships were towed to Holland. This is a matter of historical fact. As an impressionable child of the 1960's I listed to Radio London (Big L) and learned at an early age that Governments will do anything they want regardless of public opinion and widespread sentiment (sad as I was at the time it was a lesson worth learning and has helped me considerably in adulthood).
On the evidence presented so far, I have concluded that the origins of Radio Caroline are as described on Yesternoir and that Radio Atlanta and Radio Caroline were a single operation.
The real role of Ronan O'Rahilly initially as a spokesperson for Radio Caroline and then the convenient business face of the station is also correct.
That he was most definitely not the founder and was part of a smokescreen to keep those behind both ventures hidden is in my opinion also correct.
You might not like that opinion however as I have said the evidence often documented or cross referenced is robust at the very least, indeed the level of investigation and time devoted to uncovering the truth has been considerable. That alone has helped me understand why Paul Rusling and Brian Lister are not popular with the researchers, there is a strong argument that at the very least their behavior was unethical and potentially a lot worse however it is not my responsibility to second guess what further actions may be taken.
So back to the question. Is there any tangible connection between Radio Caroline in the 1960's and the subsequent Radio stations that have used that name? In part two I will address that question, firstly considering Radio Northsea International's taking the name Radio Caroline International during a British election and the ongoing impact that had (because it had considerable impact) for offshore radio and the Dutch outlawing their own offshore stations in 1974.
I would urge anyone who has not read Andy Archers account of his experience with Radio Caroline in the 1970's to do so, the link is here. This will help you to see just how Ronan O'Rahilly operated during the early 1970's. It also helps you to start following the money and who was really funding and running Radio Caroline at that time. You might want to then consider what tangible connection there was with the 1960's Radio Caroline operation. I have tried to be logical and factual rather than sentimental and looking back through rose tinted glasses, will you be?
We will talk about Sky TV another time however whilst my distaste, distrust and overall dissatisfaction with the BBC is at an all time high, don't think the competition is the new moral high ground because from my current (as in right of now) experience, they all seem to go to the same Masonic lodge, anti white, anti male, anti older in age, snowflake therapy groups.
Alex Belfield might be a little bit love him, or hate him, in character however the BBC have shown there true colours in their dealings with him and the Nottingham Police appear to be the perfect face of our modern Police Force. Think about it, two tier policing is no longer a theory it's the new modern and their protection of the 'State' is unacceptably horrendous (the old cliche "this is exactly how Nazi Germany started" seems a rather pertinent right now).
Whilst anoraks remain in a comatose state of oblivion, still fighting the offshore radio battles of 1967, 1974 and 1990 in their minds, the real world has become dystopian. Why? Because your either living in the past, or being brainwashed to death by the present. Alternatively you are awake, maybe a little scared, but at least looking for the real truth! Never stop looking for the real truth, it's healthy and scares the global elite to death.
Over the years there is much Russell Brand has said that I disagree with however over the last year or so I have noticed a difference. He is clearly now very aware of the plight humanity is in.
Throughout the last century & down to today division and hatred has grown exponentially. If you read history books regarding the nineteenth century particularly regarding Europe and the USA, societal norms were in the main a world apart from today. Of course there was much wrong back then and progress in health, social standing and education has been phenomenal. I am talking more about basic human interaction and how that has declined at an alarming speed.
Behind that is in part, the ever easier ways that we can communicate our bias, emotion and and sense of belonging to one particular tribe. Add to that the media manipulation of thinking and believing at first through News Papers and then on to Radio and TV broadcasting and it became ever easier to divide opinion and create entrenched ideas and ideals. The whole left versus right political thinking takes us into even darker areas, take Fascism and Communism for example where over a hundred million were murdered in Germany, the old Soviet Union, China and Cambodia for example. Both are at the extremes of the left versus right ideology, however even in the center agreement and compromise are becoming ever rarer.
So back to Russell and the video below about 'Big Tech' and the alarming power these now hold along with their own left versus right biases. This is a thought provoking piece and if we can just ween Mr Brand off of his own little biases he could build an even larger audience and perish the thought, even bring the great unwashed closer together.
