Reynosa Tamaulipas

A friend of mine was recently in Reynosa, and he came back with a CD that contained this gem of a song. It's been stuck in my mind for the last few weeks, and luckily, I was able to find a YouTube video of this glorious life altering song. I don't think it's possible for a song to create a more funny and truthful picture of Reynosa or perhaps of any bordertown. My goal is to one day start a fake Tejano band and do a heartfelt trashy tribute to Pharr, but I need to learn the accordion before I do that and get cowboy boots. So anyways, *Drumroll* REYNOSA LA MALDOSA:

The Ballad of Nodrog



Orville T. Gordon is a hero of mine, and I don't throw the word "hero" around lightly. Orville T. Gordon founded the Outer Dimensional Forces (aka Armageddon Time Ark Base Operation) on September 3rd, 1963 in Weslaco, TX. The cult has been extremely controversial over the decades, and at one point the CIA even went in to raid the place. For many years, the Wal-Mart that is right next to the Armageddon Time Ark Base, has tried their best to buy them out and just get rid of them. The best Wal-Mart could do was just buy 1/3 of the area but ODF still has a rather large portion of the area there and it sticks out in a rather glorious visual. Some people view them as an embarrassment, but I'm rather fond of genuine insanity.

Orville T. Gordon renamed himself Nodrog (yeah it's Gordon spelled backwards...), refused to sell out and for decades has been claiming that the creator will destroy the Earth with the greatest of all floods (this is our punishment for the nosey CIA bothering Nodrog and his friends) and he and his followers will be flying away in UFOs to live happily ever after. Apparently, Nodrog claims that the area he owns right next to Wal-Mart, Church's Chicken, and Pizza Hut is the landing pad for the aliens to arrive. Gordon would go to the local pulga and sell stuff like honey and fruits but he would also sell space on the UFO for anyone interested in leaving the Earth when the time came (which Nodrog claimed was SOON!).

Also, could one ever forget the association that Nodrog's cult had with the Lingenfelters family? That family joined the cult and one of the members of that family, Mark Alan wanted to teach the mayor of Weslaco a lesson. So Mark Alan decided it would be a good idea to plant a pipe bomb and explode the mayor's car in front of the paintshop that the mayor worked for. After the car blew up and after Mark Alan was arrested, Mark's father released this statement to the local newspaper: "Your President, all supporting Bloodsuckers of the United States, plus all Bloodsuckers of Canada and Mexico, have been duly served and convicted in the Outer Dimensional Forces Foursquare Court at Alternate Base, of Triple High Treason". My dad who has worked for the City of Weslaco for the last 30 years, was telling me that after this incident they finally decided to cut off Nodrog's water supply (so he hasn't had water for as long as I've been alive) and that the whole city headquarters was packed with extra security for a while after this incident.

One thing that fascinates me about him, is that the possibility that he is a carny sometimes enters my mind, but why would he do this for this long? I imagine he really has to believe this, I mean, wouldn't selling your area to Wal-Mart be more profitable than selling UFO tickets at pulgas? Or maybe Nodrog was at one point a carny, and this reminds me of something I read at PWO from Kevin Cook:

"When you read about the early years of the CIA and the men who built it, you read a lot of stories very similar to those of wrestlers who have died. Suicides, insanity, broken families, murders, disappearances; it's really horrible stuff. Anyone who got too involved with covert action or counterintelligence, anyone who really understood the inner secrets of American foreign policy, ended up horribly damaged in some way. There are a lot of theories about why this is but I think it's simple enough; when you demand someone give up their ability to maintain a true personality to do their work they're going to get fucked out of all recognition."


So if it started as a con, maybe Orville T. Gordon got so into playing the role of Nodrog that he lost all touch with reality and forgot that he was a carny in the first place?

Anyways, the greatest of all time, Nodrog has released this statement, but unfortunately, I don't have a "Batshit Insane to English Dictionary" with me, but if you can translate this bullshit for me, feel free to comment:

"STATE OF TIME STATION EARTH
After 6000 years under free moral agency, ending on September 3, 1966, occupants of The Positive Birthright Terrortory on Time Station Earth were found, by the OUTER DIMENSIONAL FORCES, to be abusing themselves by still existing in The Stone Age, thereby automatically being MEASURED as humatons.

These humatons did retain some knowledge of The Circle, shown by use of The Wheel, but have only been employing it in a negative manner by producing friction, and by gathering and distributing Dump Energy for the sole purpose of debt creation against the Bondslaves.

This ignorance, by self-restriction of Perfect Knowledge, has produced the end product of capitalization of costly, deadly, time-wasting experimental research, with its voluminization of material and noise pollution, man-made sickness, disease, and death.

Humatons did go so far as learning how to square the circle, mainly from the measurements of The Great Pyramid, but have restricted its benefits to the negative use of numbers to satisfy their perverse greed for the evil power of man's inhumanity to man.

The OUTER DIMENSIONAL FORCES have returned to find that the occupants of The Birthright Territory have degraded their environment to a terrortory of evil. They have de-monadized the soil, water, air, and buffer zone.

Timrascope tests prove that Homo Sapiens is afflicted with that fatal Armageddon disease (AIDS II) and is now measured as an endangered species.

For 23 years the humatons of the U.S. have refused to activate the protocol for the tapping of the Universal Time Bank for unlimited energy.

Seal no. 6 is now in functional position for activation at 6:00 P.M. preceding S. Day for the rendering of Time Station Earth safe for future habitation.

When there is no vision, the humatons perish.

When the original is lost sight of, humatons come to worship a fancy of their own.

As they have discarded their ancient perfect factual knowledge, they have substituted and confined themselves in a juzgado of ultimate Babylonian mysteries religious philosophy, based upon the restricted limitations of belief and faith.

The jailers who force the humatons to sweat and exist in this stone age juzgado (the great American dream that has turned out to be a nightmare) are the She-Man Devils, who perverfractionated the perfect knowledge, the false prophets of the many of the End Time, who are preventing you from knowing by restricting you to belief and faith, and the Big Brother Police State to insure that you remain in the Dark Stone Age of The Wheel, with its friction, pollution, disease and death as a reward for being a good bondslave.

The slavemasters could not exist without the continued creation and voluminization of debt claims for expansion of the Gross National Product.

This method now has become largely The Capitalization of Calamity based upon inefficiency and poor-quality, short-life products. The achievers who built the nation--the efficiency experts--were necessarily mentally executed by the end of World War II.

If you do not understand this plain English which you are trying to read, it proves that your mind is constipated by the enforced limitations of religious unreality.

In such case, it is not always safe to physic your brains with too much knowledge, as it may result in a fatal case of varicose brains. Use Extreme Caution!

Humatons (degenerated mankind) have proved themselves totally incompetent as stewards of the Positive Birthright Territory, and have turned it into a Terrortory of hate, false love, disease, death, and mutilation of bodies fro profit.

They emulate the Chinese Warlord System in that whichever Lord has the most tax money to hire the most burglars and gunslingers (SWAT teams and various raiders) takes the most loot and prisoners to pack the Great American Gulag Archipelago.

The Great American Dream has become a nightmare of bloodsucking and terrorism.

The constipated minds of the bondslaves are kept in a state of bumbling with created terrorism in other nations while solidification of The Big Brother Police State is activated in The Birthright Terrortory.

The Indians are blamed by the white man for mutilating bodies, but the Indians only mutilated because of their ignorance caused by religious limitation.

The white man mutilates, not only because of being mentally retarded by his mysterious religious philosophy, but moreso to intentionally create debt claims toward voluminizing the Gross National Product.

In this present perverted society, debt claims are created from birth to death, whether you are in the slammer or out.

The hospitals and fake health care fraud have become a vast industry of birth and death factories for creation of debt claims.

In argument, the friendly undertaker puts down the doctor by informing the doctor that the undertaker has to bury the doctor's mistakes, and the undertaker eventually buries the doctor.

"Who buries the undertaker?" is like asking, "Which came first, the chicken or the egg?"

Well, it's all good for debt creation in the bloody religions of fornication with The Harlot and worshipping The Beast.

After all is said and done, if all the humaton Mattoids and Mentats escaped the self-created consequences of the due action of Seal no. 6, would you not be in the same wretched mess as now?

Unfortunately, Nodrog hasn't been seen since the late 1990s, so he could be dead. But no outsider ever enters there, so how would we ever know? Or maybe, just maybe, the UFOs arrived and saved him while we await our demise. That'll do, Nodrog. That'll do...

Here is their official website in case you are interested in joining this cult!

PS - On December 26th, 2009, the Governor of Public Relations for ATA Base Operation contacted me and posted some corrections to the piece below. First correction he made was that Nodrog's property had never been sold and that the Hidalgo Co. Water District unlawfully sold it to Wal-Mart, this sounds true. Then, he claimed that no one can produce any evidence that Nodrog's legitimate name is Gordon despite it being printed in several books, which is his right to say but I must be honest and say I don't believe him. Next, he went on to say that it is slander to call his organization a cult, so out of respect to him I guess I should refer to it as an organization. Fourth, he said that the following statement "...would also sell space on the UFO for anyone interested in leaving the Earth..." was totally false and that I was ignorant for stating it here. Finally, he corrected a date (it was September 3rd, 1963 instead of September 3rd, 1966, I was wrong here and it has been corrected in the original article) and claimed that Nodrog did not find the base but assisted in creating it.

Pharr, TX Riot



I was going to write a description, but the description that YouTube user jgonza1846 provided pretty much tells the story:

February 6, 1971 The night of the Pharr police riots which left one young boy dead. Mexican-Americans started protesting in the afternoon in front of the police station. Angry over police targeting and mistreating Mexican-American residents . Firefighters had to use a water hose to quell a larger crowd of people who had started throwing rocks and pieces of brick. Alfonso Loredo Flores was getting his haircut at Ramos barbershop at the corner of U.S. Hwy. 281 and Bell Street. Flores had stepped outside to see what the commotion was about when he was shot and killed by law enforcement. In the video actual footage of block 400 North Cage, Pharr, Texas in 1971.


I actually live a few blocks away from where all this took place and I've heard about this story forever, so it's fascinating to watch. I hope the guy uploads the rest of this documentary. Very interesting to view this almost 40 year old version of Pharr, TX. Some of the footage is graphic, so you've been warned.

EDIT: August 24th, 2009

EM: At the 2:01 mark in the 2nd video you see a lit up film theater, so I thought I should post a pic of how the theater and Ramos Hair Styling Center look in present day Pharr.

I blame my love on clouds on Sergei Eisenstein, Dziga Vertov, and Aleksandr Dovzhenko! Credit to google map for the pics since I don't have a camera at the moment.
