In 1906 the world’s largest passenger ship to date was launched by the Cunard Line in England: The RMS Lusitania. Nine years later, as a result of being torpedoed by a German U-boat off the coast of southern Ireland, its sinking would become the reason America entered the First World War — which also makes it the reason 117,000 young Americans lost their lives. But when one shines light on the events of the day, and the events leading up to it, the evidence shows undoubtedly that the sinking was planned and assisted by none other than the English and Americans themselves. They intentionally sent a ship full of Americans to European waters to be sunk by the Germans. In other words, it was a false flag operation.
A beacon among ships worldwide, the Lusitania left New York Harbor May 1st, 1915, headed for Liverpool, England. England at that time — and France as well — was on the brink of annihilation at the hands of the German forces. Despite this, history shows that by this point in the war the English had cracked Germany’s codes and knew, without a doubt, where all of their watercraft were located and standing guard in the British Isles, including the one that would sink the Lusitania. This information would be a huge advantage to launch several effective attacks on the enemy, but instead it was used for a much more sinister purpose that day.
Whats more, two British ships had been sunk already in the same place the Lusitania was destined to be hit. It was a well known hot spot for death. In fact, over 50 American publications warned ticket holders not to board the ship before it sailed, most notably the Des Moines Register, who posted a half page ad for the German Embassy in Washington, DC, imploring passengers to stay at home rather than risk almost certain death:
TRAVELLERS intending to embark on the Atlantic voyage are reminded that a state of war exists between Germany and her allies and Great Britain and her allies; that the zone of war includes the waters adjacent to the British Isles; that, in accordance with formal notice given by the Imperial German Government, vessels flying the flag of Great Britain, or any of her allies, are liable to destruction in those waters and that travellers sailing in the war zone on the ships of Great Britain or her allies do so at their own risk.
IMPERIAL GERMAN EMBASSY
Washington, D.C., April 22, 1915.”
These warnings were either not heard or simply ignored. Two hundred Americans boarded; 128 of them died. In total, just two short of 1200 people perished.
Unknown to those passengers, the Lusitania also held stockpiles of munitions — millions upon millions of rounds — and an equal amount of explosives packed end to end in the bottom deck. It was a gigantic a floating bomb. Because of this, it was officially considered a military ship for its journey that day — a fact the Germans were aware of — which meant it was fair game to be attacked without warning, which, as we know, it was. When the torpedo struck the starboard bow, it would have been a shock for the Germans to witness the fireworks display that resulted from their one torpedo. The munitions guaranteed the most deaths in the quickest and most theatrical way possible. As a result of the chaos, the Lusitania, the largest ship in the world at one time, only took 18 minutes to become completely submerged. It and the people aboard had no hope.
But, of course, these could have all been unfortunate coincidences, just bad planning, as the official narrators would have us believe. How can we be sure this was all done intentionally by England and America? How can we be sure this was a false flag?
The actions of England’s commander of the British Admiralty, Winston Churchill, England’s future prime minister, illuminate the seemingly ignorant confusion. History basically has him caught red handed.
Weeks before the Lusitania was sunk, Churchill wrote to England’s Trade Board President, Walter Runciman, stating his most important duty was “to attract neutral shipping to our shores, in the hope especially of embroiling the United States with Germany,” which, we know, is exactly what ended up happening with the Lusitania. As well, he personally ordered the Lusitania’s escort, the Juno, to return to harbor almost as soon as it left, leaving the Lusitania alone as a sitting duck in the water. Simply put: England wanted the Lusitania sunk because they wanted America’s troops to fight with them against their enemy.
Unfortunately for Churchill at this early point in the war, the American people had no interest in joining. Their economy was booming, cities were shooting up, and Germany, while not an ally, was still a friend to the US. They had no interest in fighting against them. Fourteen years earlier the Americans fought alongside the Germans and England in the Chinese Boxer Rebellion. In 1915, when the Germans saw an American ship in the waters they wouldn’t fire on it. They would let it pass untouched. This, of course, incensed Churchill, so he hatched a plan.
He ordered his Foreign Secretary to write a report on what the effects of a British passenger ship being sunk would be if that ship was known to hold a large number of Americans on board. The Foreign Secretary, Sir Edward Gray, then wrote to America’s Foreign Policy Advisor to Woodrow Wilson, Edward Mandell House, posing this question, as documented in the book The Lusitania by Colin Simpson, as well as many others:
Grey: What will America do if the Germans sink an ocean liner with American passengers on board?
House: I believe that a flame of indignation would sweep the United States and that by itself would be sufficient to carry us into the war.
The two foreign ministers couldn’t have been more right. After the ship was sent on its voyage, orders were sent to kill one of the engines as it entered the danger zone. According to British Naval Intelligence Commander at the time, Joseph Kenworthy:
“The Lusitania was sent at considerably reduced speed into an area where a U-boat was known to be waiting and with her escorts withdrawn.”
The Lusitania crept into position and nearly came to a halt in the water before the torpedo set off the munitions, turning a once heralded watercraft into an active town-sized bomb.
Heavy propaganda hit the US the next day aimed at convincing the common man that the Germans had targeted and attacked a ship full of Americans for no other reason than to kill them mercilessly. Germans suddenly became Huns and they were to be feared in the same way Islamics are today. Newspapers and radio broadcasts filled the naive minds of the American population with non-stop fear mongering and war trumpeting. The flame of indignation was lit. America was now ready to join the war.
It wasn’t just England that wanted American soldiers killing, risking, and losing their lives in Europe, though. It was a team effort, mainly put together on the American side through the work of Colenol Edward Mandell House, a man with deep ties to banksters who were chomping at the bit to have troops deployed, and as always, money was the motivator, as they would be the ones supplying it to the American government when it began taking out huge loans for the war effort, not to mention the titans of industry who would inherit those loans as the government bought up supplies. It didn’t matter that the average American didn’t want to go to war, big business did, and big business telling the average man what he wants is what makes him the average man.
Rothschild American frontman, J.P. Morgan, in particular needed America to join in the European battle. Before the Lusitania was sunk, his bank — and its high society investors — had been lending vast amounts of money to both England and France for their war effort, who would in turn would spend that money on weapons from his defense companies; and at that time both countries were getting thwarted by their enemy. If Germany defeated them, Morgan’s seemingly endless money stream would go dry.
As luck would have it, or so they would try to tell you, after the sinking of the Lusitania, not only did Morgan and his bankster associates keep their gravy train mobile in Europe, they also began to loan vast amounts to the American government, taking that money back through their defense companies, which fitted 4,000,000 American soldiers with weapons to march on Germany and its allies. The war made Morgan, and in turn the Rothschild’s who recently have been found to have pocketed over 80% of Morgan’s income, even filthier in riches than ever before.
Morgan wasn’t the only American beneficiary of US war spending, though. The elite families of America all had the coffers of the US Treasury at their disposal. Bankers and Standard Oil kingpins, the Rockefeller family, who pushed for America’s entry into the war relentlessly before the Lusitania attack, are said to have profited over $200,000,000 from WWI.
These elite families — who are still running the show from behind the scenes in modern times — were the driving force for the Lusitania false flag on America’s side. Woodrow Wilson, America’s president at the time, was merely a puppet for these men. He did what they said. They are well known to be the very families which put him in the White House:
“Among Wilson’s top financial angels were munitions manufacturer Cleveland Dodge (National City Bank/Rockefellers) and banker Jacob Schiff (Kuhn, Loeb Bank/Rothschilds).” —Dr. James Perloff, False Flag at Sea.
Aside from signing in the Federal Reserve Act and implementing income tax in 1913, essentially handing America over to these international bankers from then on, Wilson was guided by his masters for his part in the Lusitania’s sinking — America’s excuse to join in the madness of Europe’s needless death toll.
As mentioned earlier, Wilson’s top advisor was Colonel Edward Mandell House — a man who would go on to found the Council on Foreign Relations, the organization that has since its inception hand picked every American president to date. House was a front man for Wall Street interests such as the Rockefellers and Rothschilds, who literally lived in the White House, and who many feel was Wilson’s personal handler for the shadow government. He was an instrumental player in the passing of the Federal Reserve Act.
It was House who was contacted by the British minister Sir Edward Gray and asked what America would do if a British ship holding American passengers were sunk by a German U-boat. But not only that, House recorded in his official biography, The Intimate Papers of Colonel House, that on May 2nd, 1915, he met with Grey and the king of England at Buckingham Palace where the sinking of a British ship carrying Americans was discussed again:
“We fell to talking, strangely enough, of the probability of Germany sinking a trans-Atlantic liner. . . . He [the king] said, ‘Suppose they should sink the Lusitania, with American passengers on board?’” —Edward House.
Later that night a royal dinner was held with Grey and House as the guests. Here the plan to take the Lusitania down was officially hatched. Also in attendance was Lord Mersey, the man who would produce the report for the sinking after the fact, and who would hide the fact that there was 600 tons of explosives packed in the bottom of the ship.
Interestingly, as Dr. James Perloff points out in False Flag At Sea, the day after the infamous dinner a cable was sent from another attendee, American Ambassador Walter Page, to President Wilson that read:
“The freely expressed universal opinion is that the United States must declare war or forfeit European respect… If the U.S. does come in, the moral and physical effect will be to bring peace quickly and to give the U.S. a great influence in ending the war and in so reorganizing the world as to prevent its recurrence.”
Spearheaded and endorsed by Wilson at the behest of his handlers once again, the League of Nations, the first attempt at a world government, was formed at the end of World War 1. Here we can see it was the plan of royalty and big business from before the Lusitania left New York.
The rest, they say, is history.
