Over 100 Years of War Lies: Debunking False Flag Operations, Part I: The Lusitania

Dear Freedom Flames,

I’m glad you took the time out of your busy day to return to read up on the Lord of Columbia Series’ influences and I decided to begin with one-hundred-plus years of lies and false flag operations that thrust America into countless wars.

I stated in an article a couple weeks back that I’ll be discussing my primary influences behind Lord of Columbia and since we had a potential false flag in the news recently, I thought it would be great to kick off my ‘Influences’ series talking about the subject.

First off, for those who are new to the site, I want to be upfront in stating that I’m not a conspiracy theorist. In fact, I used to believe in what mainstream media and our state and federally funded public schools taught us about America’s long history regarding war, and that war was necessary to maintain peace, security, and liberty around the world.

American exceptionalism was a huge term my teachers used and as a history buff, I lapped it right up. My views were challenged in 2010 when a few friends started talking about conspiracies, namely ones regarding sensitive topics that I’ll save for another article, but I wanted to debunk them with factual information regarding their views as pseudo-history.

Boy, was I mistaken, so I did what the mainstream media does when propagating a cause (war in Venezuela?) that completely falls to shreds and swept it under the table.

I met a traveler by random chance a little over a year later in the fall of 2011, who taught me a few “conspiracies” in a twenty-minute conversation while I worked the late night shift at a local grocery store and I decided to do a little more research. Needless to say, the evidence was far too overwhelming.

So, with the potential false flag occurring in the Gulf of Oman, where Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has already pointed fingers at Iran with no clear-cut evidence, the false flag debate is back on the table once more. Here’s Episode I, the Sinking of the Lusitania.

 

Sinking of the Lusitania

On May 7th, 1915, eleven miles off the coast of Ireland, a British Liner, the Lusitania, was sunk by a German u-boat as the official story holds. The sinking helped condition the American public for their country’s eventual entry into World War I two years later, as 128 of the 139 American passengers on board the ship were killed.

However, the Lusitania was not, as we’re conditioned to believe, simply a civilian vessel carrying thousands of pounds and hundreds of containers of cheese and butter, as the official manifest claimed. It was shipping military contraband, such as artillery shells and gun cotton, to be taken to the British Royal Navy’s Testing Establishment.

Also, there’s evidence the ship may not have been sunk by a German torpedo, but by secondary explosions from munitions that the ship was illegally carrying.

It also wasn’t the victim of a surprise attack, as the German embassy placed a warning notice in fifty American newspapers.

More startling, the American ambassador to England, Walter Hines Page, asked his son this question in a letter five days before the ship’s sinking: “If a British Liner full of American passengers was blown up, what will Uncle Sam do? That’s what’s going to happen.”

What did the official story state?

That the Germans waged a cowardly surprise attack on an innocent peace boat.

 

Did Churchill Orchestrate This?

There is compelling evidence that Winston Churchill had much to do with the events leading up to the Lusitania’s sinking.

To take away something, consider this quote from Churchill, then the United Kingdom’s top naval officer at the time in a letter to Violet Asquith. Churchill states, “I know this war is smashing and shattering the lives of thousands every moment—and yet—I cannot help it, I enjoy every second I live.”

Let’s dive deeper into Churchill for a moment.

In another letter, this one to Walter Runciman, President of the Board of Trade, Churchill states it is, “most important to attract neutral shipping to our shores, in the hope of especially embroiling the United States with Germany,” as stated in Donald E. Schmidt’s book, The Folly of War: American Foreign Policy, 1898-2005, Page 72.

In Churchill’s own book, The World Crisis, he writes, “The maneuver which brings an ally onto the battlefield is as serviceable as that which wins a great battle.”.

At this time, as to run the risk of mistaking an innocent vessel for a war one, Germany refrained from attacking American ships, so the next best thing from Churchill was for a British ship with American passengers. Churchill then ordered a report from British Naval Intelligence to submit a report regarding the political ramifications of such a sinking.

Conclusion

I hope you enjoyed reading a brief summary on the sinking of the Lusitania and the subsequent actions which put the US on a collision course to enter World War I two years later in 1917.

This is just one of several false flags I plan to cover in this ongoing series, including the U.S.S Maine (1898), U.S.S Liberty (1967), Gulf of Tonkin (1964), and others.

Also bear in mind that I’m not in any way trying to change peoples’ perspectives, but I’m simply sharing information that I uncovered myself in my own research regarding significant historical events that led up to over a century of American wars from 1898 to Present Day.

For more information and resources regarding the bulk of what I’ll be covering in these episodes, please visit this article from the Corbett Report and watch the attached video.

I’d like to thank everyone for reading my latest article, please come back soon.

    This is very interesting. I know everyone will have their own perspective on what happened with these events, but at the same time I think they’ll still be interested in reading this. Whether I or anyone agrees with some of this stuff, I think everyone can agree that Churchill was a genius when it came to battles!

      Hi, Nate, Churchill definitely knew what he was doing, both during his military career and after, when he became British PM. I find it interesting too, hence me writing about it along with making such false flags massive staples of influence in Lord of Columbia. 

      What I’m doing here is presenting the side of the debate not taught in government schools, and since we’re taught to recite and repeat, as well as told not to question what we’re taught in the false belief that truth comes from authority, it’s definitely worth the look over, as well as the sources. 

      When I first started researching, I wanted to debunk the theories, but instead found, as shown in one of my sources, that the documents themselves contain startling revelations.

    Do you think nation leaders are compelled to do conspiracies for profit? Could it also be possible that they can’t help to orchestrate such abominable things for the sake a better future? I can’t help but to wonder why they have to make things complicated and masterplan a tragedy in order to come up with a warfare. I am not a political person, I’m a person who tends to disappear whenever politics is being discussed but I am always interested in history.

    I enjoyed this article even though I do not count as one of US citizens. Almost all countries in the world are influenced by US, anyway. Thanks for sharing this awakening article.

      Your questions will actually be answered in greater depth with a few of my later articles, since I’ll actually be covering several groups conspiring for profit. What I’ll say here is that I believe some elected officials know more than what we’re told in the mainstream media, whether they’re fighting for such conspiracies, such as Dick Cheney in the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s, who was part of the H.W. and W. administrations, or fighting against it, such as the father-son duo Ron and Rand Paul, along with a few other patriots. It will take some video research of watching some reruns of my favorite sources and notetaking, because it will be a rather confusing piece of information.

      From what I’ve concluded, it’s an overextending military-industrial complex, featuring companies like Boeing, Lockheed, Northrop, and others, just to name a few, collecting profits in the name of tragedy, which always leads to war. This is one reason why I’m doing a nice little article series on false flags and war lies, showing my readers how the same types of tragedy tend to happen (USS Maine, Gulf of Tonkin, USS Liberty, Gulf of Oman), which always leads to war.

      I am political, but not in a mainstream kind of way, simply more of an observant individual who reads and researches before basing his views. I try to be as fact-based as possible, hence my sources and yes, I get goosebumps when I study history!

      You’re absolutely right in stating that most countries in the world are influenced, both the good and the bad, by the US, and I’ll be writing about that, too. In other words, I have a lot of work to do.

    It’s always a good thing to revisit the past and look at it through a fresh pair of eyes with, an unbiased view. Nowadays, the climate we live in dictates that there is more accountability. Period. That being said, even now, trying to get the actual ‘truth’ behind certain events that have transpired is not always clear cut and easy. I would say it is umpteen times harder to present an up to date appraisal of events that took place over one hundred years ago. Using today’s litigation procedures it would be interesting to run this through a ‘Mock trial’ and see where the verdict goes. Thought provoking and well presented as your other posts have been.

      Thanks, Twack, and while I believe in the conspiracies due to my endless research and findings, I do find it important to deliver in a professional manner, unlike the Alex Joneses of the universe, who tend to force it down peoples’ throats. That never ends well and leaves a bad taste in peoples’ mouths, so it’s something I want to continue shying away from. 

      It’s so much harder these days, even with the advent of the internet because fake news and false sources indeed exist. This is why I try to stick to photos of the actual documents themselves or cite sources from places the average individual can stumble upon via a simple Google search.

      Places like the Mises Institute, Ron Paul Institute, and even sites like Forbes, Bloomberg, and Business Insider pique my interest, as they aren’t just reputable places to present evidence, but even their articles tend to be backlinked as well, providing for an even greater number of sources to be used. 

      It’s important for me to mention that I’m not trying to tell people what to think or change their minds. Far from it. I’m simply presenting my own findings and influences behind my book series, and to motivate others to perhaps do some research of their own. Just offering a simple alternative to mainstream thought.
