On today’s False Flag Weekly News (click here for links to the 40 stories covered) my good friend Jim Fetzer and I found an area of serious disagreement. (Fast forward to the 47 minute mark.)
Citing a website I’ve never heard of, Jim insists that a newspaper called the The Hollywood Inquirer published an interview with Ringo Starr in which Ringo states that Paul McCartney died in 1966 and was replaced by a look-alike named Billy Shears.
Here is the story Jim believes is real:
This story is a pathetic, badly-written hoax.
“When Paul died, we all panicked!” claims Ringo, obviously very emotional. “We didn’t know what to do, and Brian Epstein, our manager, suggested that we hire Billy Shears as a temporary solution…”
“Obviously very emotional.” Give me a break!
There is no such newspaper as The Hollywood Inquirer – though there is an empty website with a logo at HollywoodInquirer.com.
This is one of those times when the Snopes.com debunking is clearly correct…at least as far as the sourcing of the bogus Ringo quote. Frankly, I’m surprised that a guy as sharp as Jim Fetzer would fall for this.
Though the “Hollywood Inquirer story” and “Ringo quote” are obviously bogus, there are serious researchers out there who believe that Paul McCartney died in 1966. Ole Dammegard is one of them. Jim Fetzer has been listening to these people, including Clare Kuehn, and he has bought into the story so utterly and completely that he actually believed this transparently fake “news story.”
So I am appealing to VT readers for help. Is there any real evidence that Paul McCartney died in 1966? Or have Ole and Jim and Clare been having acid flashbacks to the good old days when they used to stay up all night playing Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band backwards?
If anyone can cite a simple, straightforward, unambiguous piece of hard evidence like an actual well-sourced quote from a Beatle – NOT circumstantial evidence that the Beatles were playing around with the “Paul is dead” theme for fun during their druggie days (we all KNOW that) – please drop it in the comments box.
