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.

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.

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