Radio show on the Mayas in Georgia
The sound track of a radio talk show from 2016 has been placed on Youtube for the public’s enjoyment. This marked the first time that a journalist had ever interviewed me about the Mayas In Georgia Thang. As stated in the program, there was a news blackout in Georgia during 2012 and 2013, about the filming in Georgia and broadcast of the premier of American Unearthed.
There was something else that POOF readers should know about the behind-the-scene-events associated with the strange news blackout and the bizarre behavior of bureaucrats in the Gainesville, GA US Forest Service Office. They refused to allow film crews from National Geo, PBS and History Channel to film the Track Rock ruins, but allowed the Travel Channel to shoot a program there. I really didn’t know why, when I was interviewed by this program.
Western North Carolina and extreme northern edge of North Georgia is considered by honest law enforcement officers to be the meth capital of the world. Illegal meth manufacturing and distribution corrupt everything they touch. Track Rock Gap is in the southern section of that organized crime zone. Significant profits from the drug running . . . just as in the old moonshine days . . . in funneled into neo-Nazi, paramilitary operations in the region. In return, these morons provide protection from the “Marxist Socialist” DEA agents trying to stop the drug operations. There was a paramilitary training camp directly adjacent to Track Rock Gap in 2012.
It took me a long time to figure out what has actually transpired over the past 10 years. During the spring of 2010, while I was living in a tent in the North Carolina Mountains, a major scandal broke out in regard to the US Forest Service offices in Gainesville, GA and Murphy, NC. Federal investigators had determined that high-and-middle level USFS personnel were protecting major drug dealers, operating in the region AND requiring potential vendors to make political contributions to certain Republican candidates, associated with the Dixie Mafia (Georgia) and Russian Mafia (North Carolina) in order to do business with the USFS. In fact, it was other Republican candidates, who first complained.
Perhaps the largest recipient of these illegal political donations was Congressman Nathan Deal of Gainesville! The day before he was to be tried by the House of Representatives and probably impeached, he resigned from Congress. Within a few months, he was running for governor and was elected.
So . . . Track Rock Gap is situated in a criminal/Neo-Nazi cesspool. Those involved are paranoid of both being busted and their neighbors finding out that indeed . . . they are not rich because God has blessed them for piety. Instead, Satan has blessed them because they are rotten to the core.
The bizarre behavior of the archaeologists has much more complex origins. Archaeologists nowadays tend to be far leftwing and at least atheists . . . in the Southeast more prone to be occult. Why would they get in bed with folks having extremely opposite viewpoints to make fools out of themselves in the Maya Myth Busting in the Mountains Thang?
Archaeologists are almost totally dependent on the federal dole, plus federal/state laws requiring their involvement in large, government-funded construction projects. The private sector archaeology firms receive very little income from philanthropists these days. The self-appointed ringleaders twisted the Maya Thang into a political issue in order to suck up to hogs at the trough. However, even deeper is their fear that the public will find out that they are not omniscient and in fact, over the past few decades have created a fossilized stack of cards.
Well, as Sheriff Andy Taylor (Griffith) would say, “We got a mess here folks.”
