Is there a question hidden in that wall of text?
You list a huge amount of information (that might be true), but you don't present it in a readable manner. Both the lack of white space/paragraphs and the endless list of factoids mean that almost nobody will bother to read it.
If you want to present you case you should pick out your most important and convincing facts and present them in a readable and ordered manner, and you should also provide good sources for any facts that are not self-evident.
Finally you should remember that this is not a forum for converting/impressing/convincing people, but it's here to get answers to genuine questions.
