The 1914-18 conflict was not brought on by nationalist rivalries, as popularly supposed, but by sinister revolutionary forces operating behind the scenes.
Captain Kenneth McKilliam
In 1833 The League of the Twelve Just Men of the ‘Illuminati’ secret society organised a fraternity, the B’nai B’rith, to bring about the fulfillment of the ‘Covenant,’ the supposed messianic rule of the Jews over all other people. The leader was Lionel de Rothschild, who founded the Rothschild’s bank in London. Father Nathaniel was himself the son of Meyer Amschel Rothschild, the founder of the Rothschild banking clan and one who worked with Adam Weishaupt to establish the Order of the Illuminati on May lst (May Day) 1776.
In 1848, Karl Marx (real name Mordecai Levi) was commissioned by the League of the Twelve Just Men to write the Communist Manifesto, based on the Babylonian Talmud and the writings of Weishaupt. In the same year, revolutions broke out all over Europe and beyond against the established order.
The Jew Blumenthal, editor of Judisk Tidskrift in Sweden, wrote in issue no. 75 of that paper in 1929: “. . .Only recently our race has given the world a new prophet, but he has two faces and bears two names: on the one side his name is Rothschild, leader of all the capitalists, and on the other side Karl Marx, the apostle of those who want to destroy the others.”
Rene Gros wrote in Le Nouveau Mercurie (Paris, 1927): “The two internationals of Finance and Revolution work with ardour; they are the two fronts of the Jewish International . . . There is a Jewish conspiracy against all nations.”
Benjamin Disraeli wrote in The Life of Lord George Bentinck (1852): “The influence of the Jews may be traced in the last outbreak of the destructive principle in Europe . . . the abrogation of property is proclaimed by the secret societies, which form the provisional governments of Europe, and men of Jewish race are found at the head of every one of them. The people of God co-operate with atheists, the most skilful accumulators of property ally themselves with Communists, the peculiar and chosen people touch the hand of all the scum of Europe, and all because they wish to destroy that ungrateful Christendom which owes to them even its name, and whose tyranny they can no longer endure.”
In 1840 the Jewish poet Heine wrote: “Communism, though little discussed now and loitering in hidden garrets on miserable straw pallets, is the dark hero destined for a great if temporary role in the modern tragedy – it would be war, the ghastliest war of destruction; the second act is the European and world revolution, the grand duel between the destitute and the aristocracy of wealth; and in that there will be no mention of either nationality or religion; there will be only one fatherland, the globe, and only one faith, that is happiness on earth. How could the dream end? I do not know; but I think that eventually the great sea serpent (Great Britain) will have its head crushed and the skin of the northern bear (Russia) will be pulled over its ears. There may be only one flock and one shepherd with an iron staff (the Jews) – one free shepherd with an iron staff and shorn-alike, bleating-alike human herd (of mixed breeds): the future smells of Russian leather, blood, godlessness, and many whippings. I would advise our grandchildren to be born with very thick skins on their backs.”
Disraeli wrote: “Governments do not govern, but merely control the machinery of government being themselves controlled by the Hidden Hand.” The Paris magazine Peuple Juive (January 9th, 1919) said: “The world revolution which we will experience will be exclusively our affair and will rest in our hands. This revolution will tighten the Jewish domination over all other people.”
The controlling masters, through the Illuminati, organised secret societies to get the ordinary folk interested in their plans. Among these was the Narodna Odbrana Masonic Lodge, founded in 1911. The Pan-Slav movement which aimed to get self-government for the Slav nations of the Austro-Hungarian Empire was organised by Dr. Karl Kramarsch. The Narodna Odbrana Lodge, on instructions from a higher authority, planned the assassination of the Austrian Archduke, Franz Ferdinand. This was rather odd, since the Archduke was in favour of self-government for the Serbs. The Austrian Archduke had been ‘condemned to death’ two years previously, for it was printed in La Revue international des sociétés secrètes on September 15th, 1912: “Possibly some day we will understand the remark made by the Swiss about the Archduke, the heir presumptive to the Austrian throne: ‘He will die on the steps of the throne.’”
The assassination, contrary to popular believe, was carried out, not by a Serb national, but a Jew, Gabriel Princip, who had been armed by the freemasons. The Kölnische Volkszeitung of November 1914 clearly stated at the time of the trial of Princip, which lasted until the Spring of 1916, that the assassination was planned by the Narodna Odbrana Masonic Lodge. The Badische Beobachter of June 1917 stated that the international lodges must take the full responsibility for political propaganda and for the murder of the Archduke.
After the assassination of the Archduke, Austria sent in troops to discipline the Serbs. Russia, fearing an outbreak of revolutions in the Balkans, came to the assistance of Serbia. The Austrian Emperor wanted peace but the Khazar Jew financiers wanted war and the agents of the latter were in all the chancellories of Europe and were set to carry out their policy.
Austria threatened Serbia. Russia threatened Austria. France had a pact with Russia. Germany had a pact with Austria. The Rothschilds and their affiliates were not interested in how much blood might be shed nor in how much property might be destroyed as long as their plans were carried out.
In 1833, the independence of Belgium had been accepted and Britain had signed an agreement to defend this independence. When German troops marched through Belgium to get at France, the ‘British’ press put out lying stories about Belgian babies on the points of German bayonets – just to raise the heat of British ‘public opinion,’ and, as a consequence, Britain sent in troops to protect Belgium. Right up to the outbreak of war, although Britain and Germany had been engaged in trade rivalry, their governments were at peace – a peace which had seemed to be secure for all time.
The British Ambassador to Germany at the outbreak of war was Sir Edward Goschen, a member of the Jewish family which conducted the London international banking house of Goschen and Cunliffe. Sir Edward was descended from Georg Goschen of Hamburg. Information was leaked out through the international banking system, just as is done today. The Khazar Jews knew all the secrets and formulated their policy accordingly.
This terrible war caused the slaughter of millions of the best men of Europe, but on the first Christmas Day of the war on the Western Front the spirit of the occasion was seen with British and German soldiers openly fraternising on the battlefield. This had to be stopped, and the false propaganda was put out about German ‘atrocities’ leading to further fraternisation being forbidden. In a stupid frontal attack on the Somme by incompetent generals the flower of British manhood was sent to slaughter – a ‘holocaust’ of which, of course, we seldom hear.
The plans of the Illuminati for this war were: to gain the gold in the Russian imperial banks for the international bankers; to gain Palestine as a national state for the Jews; and to establish a Communist state in Russia, with the idea that this would merely be the first of such states.
Rabbi Reichorn wrote in Le Contemporain (July 1st 1860): “We shall drive the Christians into a war by exploiting their national vanity and stupidity. They will then massacre each other thus giving place to our people.”
The periodical Jewish World of London frankly published, in its issue of the 16th January 1919: “The international Judaism forced Europe to war (1914-18) not only to seize a large part of the gold (in the imperial Russian banks) but also to start a new Jewish world by the help of that gold.”
The Russian Jews (Khazars) had forced the issue of Palestine as a state for the Jews at the first Zionist conference in Basle on the 29th, 30th, and 31st August 1897, and it was agreed at that conference to work for Palestine as afuture Zionist state. Asher Ginsberg, writing in Ahad Ha’am, proclaimed that the Jews not only formed a nation but must have a Jewish state in Palestine. Max Nordau stated in 1903: “Let me tell you the following words as if I were showing you the rungs of a ladder leading upwards and upwards: Herzl – the Zionist Congress – The English Uganda Proposition – the future world war – the peace conference; there, with the help of England, a free Jewish Palestine will be created.” Nordau was an initiate and an Illuminatus who knew the plans of those at the centre of things.
Dr. Nahum Sokoloff stated: “Jerusalem will one day become the capital of world peace.” Chaim Weizmann, a Jew from Russia, came to Britain and within a few years he had a succession of British Governments carrying out his plans for setting up a Jewish state in Palestine – such was the powerful influence in this country even this far back.
Marcus Eli Ravage, a Rumanian Jew, wrote in The Century Magazine (January 1929): “You have not begun to appreciate the depth of our guilt. We are intruders. We are subverters. We have taken your natural world, your ideas, your destiny, and played havoc with them. We have been at the bottom, not merely of the latest Great War (1914-18), but of nearly all your wars, and not only of the Russian Revolution but of every other revolution in your history.”
The American Hebrew, printed on September 10th, 1920, said: “The Bolshevik Revolution in Russia was the work of Jewish brains, of Jewish dissatisfaction, of Jewish planning, whose goal was to create a new order in the world. What was performed in so excellent a way in Russia, thanks to Jewish brains and because of Jewish dissatisfaction and by Jewish planning, shall also, through the same Jewish mental and physical forces, become a reality in the world.”
DR. ELLIS POWELL, editor of London Financial News, was in 1917 a persistent agitator for a full investigation of the ‘hidden hand’ which seemed to be at work against the national interest in the middle of the Great War. As editor of one of Britain’s most influential financial newspapers, he said in the course of an address to a meeting held in the Queen’s Hall in London on most influential financial newspapers, he said in the course of an address to a meeting held in the Queen’s Hall in London on March 4th, 1914: “In this supreme crisis in our history an Englishman is not permitted to speak to fellow countrymen and women without ever-present risk of naturalised Germans presenting writs. Lawyers employed by a dozen wealthy pro-Germans will scan every word I utter to see if by some technicality, some legal trickery, they can either shut my mouth while trickery is consummated or at least crush me by the aid of pro-German influence in eminent legal circles.”
Dr. Powell did not know then, as we know now, that those people to whom he referred were not Germans at all, they were German-speaking Khazar Jews. Andre Sheradine wrote in Le Mystification des Peuple Allies: “For some years a group of financiers whose families are for the most part of German-Jewish origin has assumed control of political powers and exert a predominant influence over Lloyd George (the British Prime Minister): The Monds, Rufus Isaacs, Sassoons, those known as the representatives of international banking interests, dominates old England, owns its newspapers, and controls elections.”
The international banking houses of the Rockefellers and the Rothschilds had joined together and now the whole world was their oyster. They had delayed setting up their First World War until they had secured control of the United States monetary system by means of the Federal Reserve Act, passed in 1913, and they began issuing the dollar as an interest-bearing debt to themselves. Their purpose having here been accomplished, their planned war broke out in Europe within a year – all the blame for this being placed on the German Kaiser, who had no knowledge of their plan.
Before October 1916, the Khazar Jews were pro-German. The German emancipation edict of 1822 had guaranteed the Jews all available rights in Germany while in other countries Jews were controlled by quotas according to their numbers in the community. In Germany, the Jewish Bleichroeder Bank in Berlin was the Kaiser’s personal bank. The Kaiser had provided the World Zionist Organisation with a handsome headquarters in Berlin and had assisted Theodore Herzl, the founder of Zionism. The Warburgs in Hamburg were the largest merchant bankers. The head of the world’s largest enterprise, the German General Electric Company, was a Jew, as were the heads of the two great steamship companies, the Hamburg-America Line and the German Lloyd Line. The Zionists had promised victory to Germany. They had hoped for a German victory which would give them Palestine – that country was then under Turkish rule and the Turks were the allies of the Germans. The Zionists moved their headquarters from Berlin to London and began to press for the war to be extended to Turkish territories. At the time, Colonel T. E. Lawrence was stirring up the Arabs to revolt against the Turks and had promised them self-government when the war was over.
Proposals were made to the British Prime Minister, Herbert Asquith, by a Jewish cabinet minister, Herbert Samuel, for the establishment of a Jewish state in Palestine in which it was intended to settle about 3-4 million European Jews. Asquith was not in favour, having accepted the opinion of Lord Kitchener and his military advisers that the war could only be won (if at all) on the main battlefield of Europe. He was therefore against opening up a second front in Palestine.
In June 1916, Asquith sent Kitchener in the cruiser Hampshire to meet and confer with the Russian Imperial High Command. Kitchener was the hero of the British public at the time and was the one man who might have sustained Russia in the war. An anti-Zionist, he was a formidable obstacle both to world revolution and to the Zionist enterprise for Palestine. The Hampshire disappeared at sea along with Kitchener. The official report stated that the ship had struck a mine. The Naval Attache at the German Embassy in August 1985 stated that there were no German mines in the area at the time. Was a bomb placed on board the Hampshire before she left port? The only people who would have gained by Kitchener’s death were the Zionists, for support for Russia in the war would have interfered with their plans for world revolution and for Palestine.
During the first three years of the war, the German General Ludendorff kept more than half his troops on the Russian Front. In July 1915, the Russian Army had lost 3,800,000 men out of 7,000,000. They had been starved of arms and ammunition. The British Government had arranged with Vickers Maxim for supplies of these much needed items to be sent off to Russia but none had arrived at the front. The founder of the Vickers armament combine was Sir Ernest Cassell, a business associate of Jacob Schiff of Kuhn Loeb & Co. of New York. Vickers had been linked up with Maxim Nordenfelt in 1897. During the war, another Jew, Sir Basil Zaharoff, who came from a family of Odessa Jews, played an important part in the international armaments industry. The failure to supply the Russian Army with the promised weapons and ammunition was one of the causes of that army’s collapse.
There was a revolution in Russia in February 1917, and Kerensky (real name Aaron Kirbiz) headed the provisional government that emerged. On March 5th, 1917, the Czar abdicated. The German Imperial General Staff demanded the withdrawal of Russian troops from the Eastern Front and this was brought about with the co-öperation of one Alexander Israel Lazarevitch, alias Helphand, alias Parvus, working with the international banker Max Warburg. Lenin was sent across Germany in a sealed train with finance supplied by the Warburgs and with the banker’s representative Olaf Aschberg. Jacob Schiff of the banking firm of Kuhn Loeb financed Leon Trotsky (real name Bronstein) and Trotsky, with 275 Jewish thugs, traveled from New York with American passports and supplies of gold to join up with Lenin and bring about the Russian Revolution of October 1917.
This revolution took Russia out of the war and enabled Ludendorff to move his divisions to the Western Front. This left Britain and France fighting Germany alone and they were worried that they would lose the war. The Zionists, as mentioned earlier, had moved their headquarters to London and increased their pressure on Britain to get Palestine as their homeland.
Britain was on the verge of defeat and Germany offered honourable surrender terms. Her peace offer asked for neither indemnity nor reparations. Germany offered to restore the territorial status and political independence of every country as they had existed in 1914. This offer was on the table before the British Cabinet and only needed Britain’s signature. The Cabinet seriously considered accepting it and was on the point of doing so when the Zionists realised what was happening and offered to railroad the United States into the war as Britain’s ally – on the condition that Britain undertake to hand Palestine over to the Jews after the war.
In October 1916, an agreement was concluded in London between the British Government and the World Zionist Organisation. The defeat of Germany and her ally, Turkey, would enable Palestine to be handed over to the Zionists. This agreement transformed ‘pro-German’ Jews into ‘pro-British’ Jews. Britain placed at the disposal of the Zionists in London its secret codes and cable facilities whereby the Zionists could inform their people throughout the world about the British pledge to turn Palestine over to the Jews as compensation for bringing America into the war, This information was sent by Zionists in the British War Office to their counterparts in Washington, and Britain began training Jews in the use of codes and international diplomatic cable facilities.
The reality of the October 1916 agreement was known to the Germans shortly after it was concluded. Germany therefore exercised great care not to commit any act which could undermine international law and give the United States cause to declare war against her. The Germans regarded the activities of the Zionists as a stab in the back in view of the 1822 edict.
Lloyd George, now British Prime Minister, had been fooled by the Zionists. The Jews in America did not believe that Britain would honour the agreement and so, under pressure from Zionists in London, Lloyd George sent Josiah Wedgewood to the United States with documentary evidence of the October 1916 Agreement. Wedgewood was met by Colonel Mandel House, who was connected with the Rothschilds, and he was able to convince a meeting of 51 Zionist leaders of the veracity of the agreement that Britain would turn over Palestine to the Jews at the end of the war.
The Jews had set up the revolutionary movement to unseat what they termed ‘imperial governments,’ but imperial governments, reasoned Theodore Herzl, had the power to assign Palestine to the Jews. The Zionist bargaining offer to the imperial governments was to rid Eastern Europe of Jewish revolutionaries and to provide a friendly outpost in the strategic location of Palestine. A faction headed by Chaim Weizmann, however, was opposed to this plan and believed in swamping Palestine with Jews until their number there was strong enough to be invulnerable. Jews were very active in revolutionary affairs in the lands in which they lived. Hundreds of thousands of Jewish Socialists rejected Zionism. They were engaged in world revolution to destroy the established order and they realised that if they abandoned what they called the ‘working class struggle’ on their home grounds they would lose all influence on the class-conscious workers who were anti-Zionist. In the end, all sections of the Jewish movement accepted the alliance with the British following the Balfour Declaration, which promised Palestine to the Jews.
Long before 1917, Jacob Schiff had it all planned to bring the United States into the war. When Woodrow Wilson was campaigning for re-election as President in 1916, he promised the voters that if elected he would keep America out of war in Europe, but he had, in fact, secretly given his word to the very opposite effect.
In the United States, as in Britain, Zionists either own the mass media directly or control it by indirect means such as advertising pressures. Today, they have their fingers in all the areas of mass information: newspapers, magazines, radio, television, book publishing, the film industry, and other forms of popular entertainment. Even in the second decade of this century their influence in these fields in America was already extremely strong – apart, of course, from television, which had then not yet been invented. To get the United States into war, it was necessary for them to use all this influence in order to build up a hatred of Germany. This they did by portraying the Germans at every opportunity as uncivilised monsters.
In 1915, the armed merchantman Lusitania was torpedoed in the Irish Sea by a German U-boat. The Lusitania had been registered as an auxiliary cruiser and was carrying arms and explosives for the Allied war effort. The German High Command had warned by advertisements in American newspapers that the Lusitania was serving in this capacity and that, being in consequence a legitimate war target for German vessels, she was an unsafe ship for Americans to travel on, so that if the latter did travel on the Lusitania they would do so at their own risk. Notwithstanding this, the American authorities allowed the Lusitania to sail from the United States to Europe, carrying American passengers, When she was sunk, American lives were lost. Winston Churchill, the First Lord of the Admiralty, had in fact withdrawn the two cruisers accompanying the Lusitania without informing its captain – giving rise to the suggestion that the sinking of the ship had been regarded as a desirable event for the effect that it would have on, public opinion. It was later established that the Lusitania was carrying explosives (see The Times of August 6th, 1982).1
Upon the sinking of the Lusitania, headlines immediately appeared in American papers reporting the event and accompanied by articles and editorials that vehemently denounced the supposed “barbarity” and “inhumanity” of submarine warfare.2 The British government’s hopes that the sinking would procure an American declaration of war against Germany were however, disappointed.
Almost a year later, headlines in the American press reported that the S.S. Sussex had been torpedoed and sunk while crossing the English Channel on March 24, 1916, and that twenty-eight American passengers on the ship, whose names and addresses were given, had perished. This was a deliberate lie – the Sussex was found by the Royal Navy to be safely tied up at her berth in the Thames.
In the meantime, President Wilson had been blackmailed by Samuel Untermeyer, a Zionist New York attorney of the firm Untermeyer, Guggenheim and Marshall. Samuel Untermeyer was a multi-millionaire. Woodrow Wilson, while President of Princeton University, had indulged himself in an adulterous liaison with Mrs. Mary Allen Peck and had written her letters in which, it is said, he promised to marry her when both were free. When Wilson’s first wife died on August 6, 1914, he evidently reconsidered his promise to Mrs. Peck, and she seems to have taken no action until she needed desperately to raise $30,000 for her son. She placed her claim in the hands of Samuel Untermeyer, who, seeing the opportunity for blackmail, demanded from Wilson a very large sum of money,3 threatening he would otherwise file suit on behalf of Mrs. Peck for breach of promise and thus publish the letters, which would ruin Wilson’s political career. Wilson had no money but Untermeyer said he would pay the money if Wilson would appoint his nominee to the first vacancy on the United States Supreme Court. By this method the Zionist Louis Brandeis became a member of the Supreme Court.
Justice Brandeis was the most politically influential of all the Zionists in the United States. He gave it as his opinion to Woodrow Wilson that the sinking of the Sussex by a German U-boat, with the loss of United States citizens on board, justified a declaration of war by America against Germany.
On the 2nd April 1917, President Wilson, fully aware that the story of the sinking of the ship was a cruel hoax, addressed both Senate and Congress. He pleaded with them to declare war on Germany. He informed Congress that a German submarine had sunk the S.S. Sussex in the English channel!4 The United States declared war on Germany on the 6th of April 1917.
This hoax was exposed after General Pershing’s troops were already fighting in Europe. Arthur Ponsonby later wrote in his book Falsehood in Wartime: “There must have been more lying in the world from 1914 to 1918 than at any other period.” The Rt. Hon. Francis Nielson wrote on pages 149-150 of his book Makers of War: “In America Woodrow Wilson, desperate to find a pretext to enter the war, found it at last in the sinking of the Sussex in mid-channel. Someone invented the yarn that American lives had been lost. With this excuse he went to Congress for a declaration of war. Afterwards the Royal Navy found that the Sussex had not been sunk and that no lives had been lost.” Nielson was later hounded and forced to resign his seat in Parliament and eventually to flee the country.
Winston Churchill referred to the declaration of war by the U.S. against Germany stating: “America should have minded her own business and stayed out of World War One. If you hadn’t entered the war, the Allies would have made peace with Germany in the Spring of 1917. Had we made peace, there would have been no collapse of Russia followed by Communism, no breakdown in Italy followed by Fascism, and Germany would not have signed the Versailles Treaty which has enthroned Nazism in Germany. If America had stayed out of the war, all these ‘isms would not be sweeping the Continent of Europe and breaking down parliamentary government, and if England had made peace early in 1917, it would have saved over 1 million British, French, American, and other lives.”
The Treaty of Versailles rearranged the map of Europe in such a way as to ensure that another war would be inevitable. The international bankers and financiers demanded that their newly established Communist state, the Soviet Union, should be recognised. Lloyd George, enlightened too late in the day, as was Churchill after World War II, wrote of these events: “The international bankers and financiers swept statesmen, politicians, journalists, and jurists all to one side and issued their orders with the imperiousness of absolute monarchs.”
Because the Zionists had manipulated the American people to get the United States into the war, the British implemented the Balfour Declaration. Britain, by this time, was under the control of the Jews. The Balfour Declaration established that Palestine would become a home for the Jews, despite the promises made to the Arabs by T. E. Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia) that they would have self-government after the war for their help in defeating the Turks. Lawrence was discredited and embittered. He was killed in very suspicious circumstances – which suggest that he was regarded as knowing too much.
The secrets of all the belligerent parties were known to the bankers, for the Warburgs international bank had members of their family both in Germany and the United States and were in touch with the Rothschilds throughout the war. In this war the Anglo-Saxons and Celts and their racial cousins, the Germans, slaughtered each other for the benefit of their common enemies. Millions of the finest men of both sides lost their lives needlessly.
Clausewitz, a student of war, wrote: “modern wars are the pursuit of policy by other means: that is to say, wars are prime fights between the populations of A and B for the benefit of C.”
In consequence of World War I: –
(1) Germany lost the war and came under the control of the Jew-controlled Weimar Republic.
(2) Russia was destroyed. Its intelligentsia and farming communities were slaughtered, and she became the base for future world revolution.
(3) The gold contained in the Imperial Russian banks was shipped off to New York to Kuhn Loeb & Co. by Lenin and Trotsky.
(4) Palestine was handed over to the Jews.
(5) Britain ended the war in enormous debt – to be increased on a vastly greater scale as a result of World War II. Largely under the pressure of her international creditors, she began her abdication from empire.
1 When the wreck was first examined by divers, it was obvious that the hull of the Lusitania had been blown open by a terrific internal explosion that had been detonated by the first torpedo from the German submarine. See Colin Simpson, The Lusitania (New York, 1972), pp. 142f. of the Ballentine reprint (1974). The fact that the Lusitania was carrying a large cargo of munitions was probably known to Lord Mersey, the High Commissioner in charge of the official inquiry into the sinking; under extreme pressure from the British Government, he rendered a false decision and, disgusted with what he privately termed “a damned dirty business,” he immediately resigned his office, informing the Prime Minister, “henceforth I must be excused from administering His Majesty’s justice.” – Editor.
2 The lead was taken by the New York Times, which had been purchased in 1896 by a wealthy Jew, Adolph S. Ochs, who, with the support of his fellow tribesmen, made it into the foremost newspaper in the United States, distinguished for both comprehensive and accurate reporting, except, of course, in matters that directly affected Jewish interests. The American press, on the whole, howled in harmony, although there were honorable exceptions in the editorials of some newspapers that were still owned and controlled by Americans. The German government had been informed by its espionage service that the Lusitania carried a large cargo of high explosives and other munitions of war, but its official allegations after the sinking were either suppressed or discounted in the press. It was not possible, however, to conceal entirely the fact that for a week before the Lusitania sailed advertisements, warning Americans of the danger of traveling on British ships that were running the German blockade of the British Isles, appeared in many of the fifty newspapers to which the prepaid advertisements had been sent. There was much agitation about the supposed “barbarity” and “ruthlessness” of torpedoing enemy liners without warning. It is true that by a convention established when naval operations were conducted entirely by surface craft, passengers and crew of merchant ships that attempted to run a blockade were given an opportunity to leave the ships in boats before the ships were seized and/or sunk. German submarines followed this procedure until shortly before the sinking of the Lusitania. On 28 Marh 1915, the small British liner Falaba was stopped by a German submarine and given ten minutes in which to disembark passengers and crew. The captain of the ship obtained extensions of the allotted time while summoning assistance by wireless, and it was only when a British gunboat appeared that the commander of the submarine torpedoed the ship, which was carrying thirteen tons of high explosives and blew up, killing an American passenger. So far as the Lusitania was concerned, the commander of the German submarine knew from his copy of the authoritative British publication, Jane’s Fighting Ships, that the Lusitania had been fitted as an auxiliary cruiser with concealed six-inch guns, and rightly judged that it would be suicidal for him to surface his submarine and give warning of his intention to torpedo it. After the sinking of the Lusitania, the legal department of the U.S. Government reported that, in terms of international law, “Germany had every right to sink the Lusitania” (the full text of the report is given by Colin Simpson, op. cit., p. 182), but the report was suppressed by Robert Lansing, an agent of international banking interests, who had been appointed Undersecretary of State. He evidently kept the report from the knowledge of his superior, the Secretary of State, William Jennings Bryan, who, nevertheless, resisted pressures for war against Germany until he was forced to resign on June 8, 1915, shortly after a witness, who swore that he had seen the concealed cannons on the Lusitania, was kidnapped by the American Secret Service and imprisoned incommunicado on false charges until he could be secretly deported to Switzerland. – Editor.
3 Untermeyer increased Mrs. Peck’s demand from $30,000 to $250,000 to make it impossible for Wilson to pay the blackmail, according to Colonel Curtis B. Dali’s F. D. R. (2d edition, Washington, D.C., 1970), pp. 140 f. Colonel Dali’s many years of intimacy with both Jewish financial circles in New York City and the occupants of the White House make his evidence authoritative. He was able to quote the substance of the conversation between the blackmailer and the President of the United States, in which Wilson thought he might be able to raise $100,000, a sum which Untermeyer rejected as inadequate before he was struck with the “happy idea” that his friends would pay the $250,000, if Wilson appointed Brandeis to the Supreme Court. In those days, when Americans still had real money, $250,000 was a very large sum indeed, the equivalent in gold of $5,600,000 at the present depressed price of gold, and of many times that amount in purchasing power. It is not known what Mrs. Peck received for the compromising letters; she may have been given her $30,000, if she was lucky. Untermeyer’s typically Jewish operation succeeded not only because Wilson was so weak as to submit to the blackmail, but also because Wilson was well aware that he owed his election to the Presidency to the Jews, who trained him for the office and procured his election by preying upon the vanity of Theodore Roosevelt and inciting him to organize a Third Party to split the Republican vote. Colonel Dali reports that the Jews boasted that they had led Wilson around “like a poodle on a string” while teaching him what he must do when elected to the Presidency. – Editor.
4 After the faked report of the sinking of the Sussex, Wilson, egged on by his masters, addressed to Germany an ultimatum demanding the cessation of submarine warfare. It was, of course, an act of unprecedented effrontery for the executive of an ostensibly neutral nation to dictate to a belligerent nation how it should conduct a war for its own survival, but self-righteous little prigs, inflated by messianic hallucinations, have no sense of decency. Germany submitted to the outrageous threat and recalled all of her small fleet of submarines, but actual starvation in Germany as a result of the British blockade prompted the German government to rescind its agreement to discontinue the use of submarines and to inform the United States. That gave the pretext for Wilson’s oratory about the supposed sinking of the Sussex when he demanded that the Congress declare war on Germany as a holy Crusade for “mankind” on April 6, 1917, almost exactly two years after Dr. Bernhard Dernberg, at a meeting in New York, had prophetically declared, “The American people cannot visualize the spectacle of a hundred thousand, even a million German children starving by slow degrees as a result of the British blockade, but they can visualize the pitiful face of a little child drowning amidst the wreckage caused by a German torpedo.” The American people, now under Jewish rule, are paying the penalty for their folly. – Editor.
