Other researchers can work their way around roadblocks like this, but as a rookie I am prepared to just patiently absorb and learn. Time and effort will produce results. (But look at the names! … Morrison, Heileg, Ryan, Miller.)
Here is what happened: Some time back, curious about the most powerful man in my home state of Montana, Dennis W*********, and even more so because of the name “W*********,” I checked out his Wikipedia page. There it was in plain sight, the magic marker:
Following graduation from high school, he worked in construction in Alaska and Montana. He began his business career at age 30 in 1964, with a $30,000 loan and a single bulldozer. He created W********* Construction, which worked primarily on highway contracts and by 1969 was the largest contractor in Montana.
In much the same manner as the “Underpants Plan” from South Park, we are told that Dennis was soon the biggest road builder in the state.
(Eric Cartman has a plan to become wealthy by stealing underpants. It goes like this:
1: Steal underpants;
Later he buys the Berkeley Pit and reopens it to tap the remaining vein, and buys from Burlington Northern the intrastate rail lines. He is a mogul.
The key here is that both the mining operation and railroads were once Rockefeller operations. (Anaconda Copper Company was owned by the Rockfellers, and most of the state’s newspapers were owned by Anaconda. The “Copper Collar,” it is called, and I suspect too that is still in force with “Lee Enterprises,” the company that bought the newspapers from Anaconda. Lee-issued news is a joke.)
I have on my shelf here a book called Montana: High, Wide and Handsome, by Joseph Kinsey Howard, a Montana journalist. He chronicles the Copper Collar days and the state’s incredibly corrupt history, but also leaves the impression that since he could get his book published (sold under the counter, we are told), that it had ended. That is known as a “limited hangout.”
I suspected, as our writer Tyrone has pointed out, that ownership of these companies never changes, but new managers are appointed. Since W********* is of the peerage (a $30,000 loan at age 30 tells us that), he was selected to be the public face for the old owners.
Also interesting, and I had no concrete abilities of following up, that Dennis had no mother or father. I learned from a local newspaper obit that his father was Roy W*********, a wealthy businessman with interests in Alaska who settled in Missoula, Montana. I also learned that even as all public documents called him “Roy,” his real name was Royal.
In researching the John Brown piece below, I saw that after the staged Harpers Ferry incident, there were also a staged hostage taking and a fake death. One of the hostages was Lewis W*********, great grandnephew of George. We know that George had no issue, that the Father of our Country might well have been sterile or impotent. (Such irony.) But George did have siblings, and as another researcher has found, was of the Ball lineage. (Think Lucille.) So they are still about today, though most are of low profile. So in looking into Dennis, I had found one, together with a fake biography and scrubbed genealogy.
I also found something else: The piece I wrote, called “The Magic Bulldozer,” has disappeared, removed from the website. It was linked over at Fakeologist, so I can give good evidence it really existed. Here’s a screen grab, just in case:
I did not delete The Magic Bulldozer, either by accident or intentionally. I was rather proud of it. (I recently deleted close to 90 pieces, but they don’t just disappear. They are stored in trash for a while. The Bulldozer piece is not there.) The other writers here did not do this. (There are over three thousand pieces up here, and all of them, good and bad alike, are left alone unless I personally get rid of them.)
It was done quietly. I should never have found out, as this is how censorship works. It just so happens that we try to link pieces here via the menus on the right. That link is gone too.
I should just rewrite the whole piece, but honestly I am a little nervous. No physical harm will come to me, but it could be that someday I turn on the computer and find that I no longer have a W***p**** account, and that all of the past work is gone. (I suggested to Straight one time that WP is nothing but a CIA front, and he agreed, as I recall. Spooks do manage to put themselves in pivotal power points, such as in YouTube, Facebook, Wikileaks, etc.) Losing most of that stuff is fine, but for a few pieces, I guess I’d better get busy backing them up.
I don’t have enemies in any real sense, that is, people who wish physical harm or financial ruin on me. But powerful people can, with the flick of a wrist, dispense with annoying gadflies like me and make my work disappear. That is troublesome.
(I have blurred and asterisked what I could here, so as not to be picked up by a search engine. Contents of photos do not respond to search engines, as far as I know. This is a low-profile operation. The original piece was probably stumbled upon, (perhaps by a Montana “journalist”?), referred back to DW, who ordered that it disappear.)
PS: It just occurred to me that part of the work on the Bulldozer piece was done with help from the Montana Historical Society. It was through them I discovered the Roy obituary. I was not as aware then as now that history is owned by the PTB, so that MHS would not be allowed to produce real and significant history, but rather would deal in trifling matters like medicine men and buffalo soldiers, but not moguls. That is the possible source of the link to DW that made the piece disappear.
