I have had some really strange synchronicities in the past two days surrounding “What’s the Frequency Kenneth?” I can’t get it out of my head,
so I looked into it a bit. Now I feel like my brains are scrambled.
Here are some oddities I have noticed as I started digging. First stop, YouTube. The video itself is filled with all sorts of strobe effects. I
shouldn’t have to tell any serious CT about strobes.
The song is based on a bizarre event which took place on October 4, 1986. Anchorman Dan Rather was approached by two men, while he walked down Park
Avenue at abou 11
p.m. One of the men attacked him from behind and began beating him, shouting in demand, “Kenneth! What’s
the frequency Kenneth?!!!”
Now let’s skip back to the previous month. Rather had signed off his newscasts for a week somewhat enigmatically, with the single word
“courage.” That same week in September
, Arab extremists had threatened to “become familiar with your skyscrapers and
extend the terror campaign to the United States.” Coincidentally enough, the topic of Dan Rather’s last piece was the 9/11
attacks, and he signed off his final broadcast with that word “courage.”
Anything odd related to Dan Rather specifically linked to the date of September 11? Well, yes there is actually. On September
1987, the year after the “Kenneth” attack, Dan Rather up and walked off the set leaving the networks scrambling to fill the slot.
There was a full six minutes of dead air. A huge no no for television.
A few months later, Rather publicly assailed then Vice-President, and frontrunner for the Republican nomination, George H.W. Bush over the Iran-Contra
scandal during a live on-air interview. It turned out to be a pivotal point in both of their careers. Rather’s ratings began a steady decline from
that point on, while many believe this was a pivotal point in Bush’s successful run for President. The animosity between the anchorman and the Bush
family was permanent. Neither President Bush has ever granted Dan Rather another interview.
Dan Rather was also intimately involved with news surrounding Afghanistan, when it was the Soviets who were invading. The following article has some
insights there. Obviously I don’t have to point out the connections with 9/11, Afghanistan, and the Bush’s.
Back to the main topic. On the last day of August 1994, the day before September
, a man named William Tager murdered NBC
stagehand Campbell Montgomery outside of the “Today” show studio. The motivations for the murder take several tracks, but supposedly the murderer
believed that the media had him under surveillance and were beaming hostile messages to him. In 1997 a writer for the NY Daily News claimed to have
solved the mysterious attack on Dan Rather, saying that it had been William Tager, demanding to “know the frequency,” all those years earlier. Dan
Rather positively identified the man from a picture.
But apparently there is much more to the story. Read the following…
This article really blew my mind when I found it, because I had a synchronicity yesterday in relation to the downright bizarre movie “12 Monkeys.”
So, now we have Tager supposedly arriving in New York City on September 1
, 1986 from a parallel universe in the twenty-third
century. (Born 2265. Half of 22 is 11
.) One day shy of eight years later, on the last day before the month of
, Tager commits murder. Twenty two days later (11
x 2) R.E.M. releases the single “What’s the
Then there is a completely different explanation for the attack on Dan Rather that is full of its own synchronicities. Notice the word “world” in
here, I think it’s toward the end. And remember that Dan Rather used to sign off saying, “…and that’s part of your world tonight."
Now we have the death of Dan Rather’s career over the documents relating to Bush Jr. and his service in the National Guard. I don’t have to rehash
that whole scandal, but it seems pretty clear that Rather was set up with phony documents, that were probably actually telling the truth. The Bush’s
decided to finally crucify him. Rather broke the story, on September
8, 2004. On September
Rather filed a lawsuit against CBS. The following article spins him into the land of “bizarre conspiracy” and irrelevance.
My brain is pretty fried at this point, so I’m going to post, and come back later to try to make a little more sense of all this.
Some of these links may be repeated, but here’s everything I have open at the moment:
