Back on February 12, 2002, a man name Donald Rumsfeld gave an answer to a reporter that gained as much notoriety as it did wonderment: what did he mean when he said:
"Reports that say that something hasn't happened are always interesting to me, because, as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say, there are things that we now know we don't know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we do not know we don't know."
We know that Jimmy Ross is a myth.
We also know that the events he is associated with came from a novel written in 1990. That is what we know. There was a time that we did not know that Jimmy Ross is a myth.
Now there are known unknowns about the true origins of the financing of 'Radio Caroline' in 1964
That is to say, there are things that we now know we don't know. But knowing that we don't know the things that are to be known causes us to continue our research. But while there are also unknown unknowns, there are things we did not know that we do know now.
Where the entire anorak 'Caroline' cult gets shipwrecked is when it tries to explain who funded 'Radio Caroline' in 1964, and why?
Here is their problem:
Although the radio ship named 'Caroline' went on the air about a month after February 27, 1964, the only company associated with Ronan O'Rahilly and 'Radio Caroline' was not formed until February 27, 1964. But the ship and its transmitters had all been bought and installed long before February 27, 1964.
How was that possible?
The anoraks turn to the myth of 'Jimmy Ross' for an explanation.
That is why the anoraks need the mythology of 'Jimmy Ross', but although this phantom name had been reported in a news item in 1964, that is all that had been reported. The details about this fantasy figure were not published until 1990, and then they appeared in a novel.
More than this, the novel never mentioned a 'Jimmy Ross', the latter-day cult of anoraks have invented that name and joined it to the fictitious story in the novel. The novel never mentions Ronan O'Rahilly, and it never mentions a ship named 'Caroline'.
There is a mention of a man named 'Jim', but his last name in the novel is 'Shaw'.
The anoraks have created a religious cult about the man in the novel who is also called 'Jimmy'.
Paul Rusling's fictitious 'bible' gives the anoraks a fairy story to follow and recite - which they do.
Because we know for a fact that a radio ship named 'Caroline' did begin broadcasting in 1964, and because we also know for a fact that in 2022 no one, that's right, no one has offered any authentic documented explanation as to how that happened in such a way that a court of law would accept it as the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
On the other hand, we know that the anorak yesterday never happened, so we have been and we still are working on finding out who started 'Radio Caroline' and why they started it.
You will soon find out the real story and why the so-called tribute station on '648' is a tribute to a myth.
