NY Times:West Point to Remove Confederate Monuments From Its Campus
Bronze plaques that depict Gen. Robert E. Lee and other Confederate figures at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point will be placed in storage.
The US Military Academy at West Point in New York State has announced that it will begin removing Confederate symbols from its campus, including taking down a portrait of General Robert E. Lee from the library and removing a bust of him as well. This is being done for the wrong reason, of course — specifically, the Marxist obsession with denigrating the White Man through the never-ending remembrance whine about southern slavery and modern “racism .” Nonetheless, due to my recent epiphany regarding General Lee, perhaps he should cease to be exalted as some sort of von Clausewitz-like military tactician for the ages.
This may be as much of surprise for “you guys” to hear for the first time as it was for me — but it turns out that, at the end of the US Civil War, many Southerners (including military men) actually blamed Lee for losing the war. During the final post-war years of his life and even for several years after his death in 1870, Lee’s record was subject to harsh criticism in both North, South and abroad. It was only the “Lost Cause Ideology” of 1870’s – 1880’s Southern revisionists — a dubious recounting of the war which erased the ambition of certain southern politicians, European intrigue (Rothschild), and the westward expansion of slavery as fundamental factors behind the unprovoked and unnecessary secession declarations of 1860-61— that rehabilitated Lee’s reputation. The revisionists needed a saint, and who better than a “war hero” to posthumously fill that role. By the turn of the 19th century, Lee had been canonized.
According to this school of artificial scholarship, the South valiantly outfought the Union but inevitably lost “The War of Northern Aggression” only because of the North’s superior industrial wealth and manpower numbers — not because of General Lee or Confederate President Jefferson Davis— the latter being one of the founders of Lost Cause doctrine. In reality, many of Lee’s failures were epic. So much so that a “conspiracy theorist” might even be inclined to speculate if Lee — the former superintendent of West Point who had opposed secession before declaring allegiance to the Confederacy — was secretly working to preserve the Union. Let’s put the legend and propaganda (and passion) aside and consider the poor performance.
1. Robert E. Lee’s portrait is coming down at West Point. // 2 & 3. Virginia: After the pedestal was defaced by Black Lives Matter Communists, the statue was removed.
1. Jefferson Davis lived until 1889. He actively promoted “Lost Cause” ideology which absolved himself politically, and General Lee militarily. // 2. Stone Mountain Monument in Georgia — a project begun in 1915 and completed in 1972 — depicts Davis in front and Lee right behind him. The figure lagging behind them is General Stonewall Jackson — whose reputation as a skilled commander is truly deserved. Jackson died before Gettysburg after having been shot in the arm by friendly fire, dropped twice from a stretcher, and then contracting pneumonia after his arm was amputated. // 3. St. Robert’s statue was once revered — even though Lee himself would never have wanted it.
WAS LEE A CLOSET UNION MAN? Lee’s father, Henry Lee, was an early American Patriot, revolutionary war hero and, later on, a Federalist Party (strong Union) politician. He was very close to George Washington (who had once courted Lee’s mother before she married). It was Henry Lee who famously eulogized George Washington at the latter’s 1799 funeral as “first in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen.”
– Robert E Lee // pre-war 1861 letter to his son, George Washington Custis Lee (Step Great Grandson of George Washington)
“As an American citizen, I take great pride in my country, her prosperity and institutions, and would defend any State if her rights were invaded. But I can anticipate no greater calamity for the country than a dissolution of the Union. It would be an accumulation of all the evils we complain of, and I am willing to sacrifice everything but honor for its preservation. I hope, therefore, that all constitutional means will be exhausted before there is a resort to force. Secession is nothing but revolution. The framers of our Constitution never exhausted so much labor, wisdom, and forbearance in its formation, and surrounded it with so many guards and securities, if it was intended to be broken by every member of the Confederacy at will. It was intended for “perpetual union,” so expressed in the preamble, and for the establishment of a government, not a compact, which can only be dissolved by revolution, or the consent of all the people in convention assembled.”
*Note: 100,000 southern men volunteered and fought for the Union.
In the June 1969 issue of Civil War History (Volume 5) University of South Carolina professor, proud southerner and renowned historian Thomas L. Connelly — attacked Lee’s legacy thusly:
“No single war figure stands in greater need of reevaluation than Lee. One ponders whether the South may not have fared better had it possessed no Robert E. Lee.”
Connelly’s 1969 essay was immediately scorned and ridiculed. But the argument that Lee — being out-manned — should have taken a more defensive posture and thus drawn the North into difficult southern terrain makes perfect sense. Instead, he was too often on the offensive and in full frontal assault manner. This resulted in unnecessary heavy casualties and demoralization. All that the Confederacy needed to confirm itself as a separate country was a stalemate. The burden was on the North to defeat and physically occupy the South — an achievement which came after too many losses were suffered by unnecessarily offensive southern forces.
Civil War Historian James McPherson put it this way:
“The South could ‘win’ the war by not losing. However, the North could win only by winning.”
Under Lee’s command, the Army of Northern Virginia racked up a total of 209,000 casualties. That’s 55,000 more than Ulysses S. Grant, who’s been criticized for “butchering” his men. Lee’s unnecessarily offensive strategy, and various other lost opportunities and blunders (here) and (here) — doomed the Confederacy to defeat. Lee burned through men faster than recruitment and the unpopular Confederate draft could replace them.
1 & 2. Thomas Connelly (1938-1991, no photo available) authored many scholarly books on the US Civil War of 1861-1865 — including “The Marble Man” (a title mocking the immortalizing of Lee by statues). Connelly maintains that it was not until the 1880’s that certain southern cliques transformed Lee into the invincible general and, later still, a southern and even a national hero. // 3. Criticism of Lee is still frowned upon in academic circles both North & South — liberal and conservative; but the case of the Correctionist Historians is indeed compelling.
Of all Lee’s blunders, the most damaging and decisive occurred at The Battle of Gettysburg in the opening days of July of 1863. On the third day of battle, in what shamefully became known as “Pickett’s Charge” — (I say “shamefully” because General George Pickett was not responsible for ordering the reckless charge and never forgave Lee (nor spoke to him again) for having ordered it) — Confederate troops were ordered to advance across an open 3/4 mile long field, into the teeth of heavy Union artillery and gunfire.
Lee issued the charge order against the advice of several subordinates. The repulse of “Pickett’s Charge” resulted in more than 6,000 casualties on the rebels — turning the tide of both the battle and the war itself. Lee was severely and properly criticized by military contemporaries and the southern press. What the heck was Lee doing — again, against the advice of subordinates — invading the northern state of Pennsylvania anyway? Even if Lee had won at Gettysburg, the depleted rebel force would eventually have had to retreat southward anyway.
The 1880’s propagandists not only continued to unjustly tag the demoralizing fiasco as “Pickett’s Charge,” but also scapegoated General James Longstreet’s execution of the attack for its failures — another underhanded deflection which Connelly and many modern military strategists find laughable. In a 2006 paper, a Department of Defense research center described Lee’s effort at Gettysburg as a “blunder” that “doomed the hopes of the Confederate States of America.”
The late military historian Edward Bonekemper III — author of “How Robert E. Lee Lost the Civil War” — spoke about Lee’s faults for many years. Early on, he faced much resistance, but before his death in 2017 remarked:
“Now people don’t get nearly as emotional as they used to. They are more open to hearing that there is another side to the story.”
Monuments may fall. But mythologies take a bit more time to undo.
Lee’s name has been scrubbed clean from responsibility for the demoralizing disaster of “Pickett’s Charge” at Gettysburg — leaving Pickett & Longstreet to take the blame for a charge — and a battle — which should never have taken place.
A Confederate soldier of Gettysburg in a letter to his sister: (misspellings his)
“We got a bad whiping . . . they are awhiping us . . . at every point. . . . I hope they would make peace so that we that is alive yet would get home agane . . . but I supose Jef Davis and Lee don’t care if all is killed.”
1 & 2. Edward Bonekemper III — a military historian who caught flak for daring to critique Lee’s decisions. // 3. General George Pickett of “Pickett’s Charge” infamy. His name was eternally dirtied for a disastrous bloodbath which he opposed — yet still bears his name, not that of the exalted “Marble Man” who ordered it.
To kick off their long-awaited, pre-planned World War, the New World Order uses “Serbian Nationalists.” .A secret society known as Young Bosnia, possibly working with The Young Turks, plots the murder of an Austrian Royal. Serbia is an Orthodox Christian nation under the protection of Russia. Due to Disraeli’s past schemes, many Serbs also live under Austro-Hungarian rule (in Bosnia) instead of under Serbian sovereignty. This situation has always caused friction, both within Austria-Hungary, and also between Russia and Austria-Hungary.
Archduke Franz Ferdinand is heir to the Habsburg Family throne of Austria- Hungary. While traveling through the Bosnian city of Sarajevo with his wife, Sophie,
a bomb is thrown at the Archduke’s open car. He deflects the bomb with his arm and it explodes behind him. The royal couple insists on seeing all those injured at the hospital. After traveling there, they decide to go to the palace, but their driver takes a wrong turn onto a side street, where another assassin named Gavrilo Princip spots them. He shoots Sophie in the stomach and Franz in the neck. Franz is still alive when witnesses arrive to give aid. His dying words to Sophie are, “Don’t die darling. Live for our children.”
EARLY GERMAN VICTORIES / FOLLOWED BY STALEMATE After Germany’s westward march towards Paris stalls, the Western Front bogs down into a bloody stalemate with trench lines that change little until 1918. In the East, the Russian army successfully fights against the Austro-Hungarian forces but is then forced back by the German army. Additional fronts open after the Ottoman Empire (Turkey) joins the war (on Germany’s side) in 1914. Italy switches sides and joins the Entente powers in 1915. At sea, the British Navy blockades Germany. German U-boats will counter the blockade, and sink many British merchant ships carrying arms and supplies.
THE MANIFESTO OF THE 93 / GERMANY’S LEADING
INTELLECTUALS AND ARTISTS CONDEMN THE WEST’S ANTI- GERMAN PROPAGANDA
To counter the lies of the Allied propagandists, 93 of Germany’s leading scientists, scholars and artists sign their name to “The Manifesto of the 93”. The document denounces the lies aimed at Germany, and declares unequivocal support of German military actions. Perhaps the most notable of the accomplished signatories is Wilhelm Roentgen, the Nobel Prize winning physicist who discovered “X-rays”. The Manifesto reads: “As representatives of German Science and Art, we hereby protest to the civilized world against the lies and calumnies with which our enemies are endeavoring to stain the honor of Germany in her hard struggle for existence—in a struggle that has been forced on her. The iron mouth of events has proved the untruth of the fictitious German defeats; consequently misrepresentation and calumny are all the more eagerly at work. As heralds of truth we raise our voices against these. It is not true that Germany is guilty of having caused this war. Neither the people, nor the Government, nor the Kaiser wanted war. It is not true that we trespassed in neutral Belgium. It has been proven that France and England had resolved on such a trespass, and it has likewise been proved that Belgium had agreed to their doing so. It would have been suicide on our part not to have preempted this. It is not true that the life and property of even a single Belgian citizen was injured by our soldiers without the bitterest defense having made it necessary. It is not true that our troops treated Louvain brutally. Furious inhabitants having treacherously fallen upon them in their quarters, our troops with aching hearts were obliged to fire a part of the town, as punishment. The greatest part of Louvain has been preserved.. It is not true that our warfare pays no respects to international laws. It knows no undisciplined cruelty. But in the east, the earth is saturated with the blood of women
and children unmercifully butchered by the wild Russian troops, and in the west, dumdum bullets mutilate the breasts of our soldiers. It is not true that the combat against our so-called militarism is not a combat against our civilization, as our enemies hypocritically pretend it is. Were it not for German militarism, German civilization would long since have been extirpated.. We cannot wrest the poisonous weapon—the lie—out of the hands of our enemies. All we can do is to proclaim to the entire world, that our enemies are giving false witness against us. Have faith in us! Believe that we shall carry on this war to the end as a civilized nation, to whom the legacy of a Goethe, a Beethoven, and a Kant, is just as sacred as its own hearths and homes.”
DECEMBER 2, 1914
JEWISH-OWNED NEW YORK TIMES REPORTS ON THE PLIGHT
OF 6 MILLION JEWS
MAY 7, 1915
UK LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY WINSTON CHURCHILL SETS UP THE LUSITANIA TO BE SUNK / 1200 CIVILIANS KILLED The UK wants to draw America into the war. Lord of the Admiralty Winston Churchill and Wilson’s Marxist advisor, Edward Mandell House, believe that if Germany can be baited into sinking a British ship with Americans on board, the U.S. will be forced into the war. Unbeknownst to its passengers, the luxury liner Lusitania is carrying arms and explosives destined for Britain. Sailing from New York, Lusitania is loaded with 600 tons of explosives, 6 million rounds of ammunition, 1200 cases of shrapnel shells, and some American passengers. The German embassy in Washington is aware of this and tries to warn American travelers by placing ads in U.S. newspapers, which are refused in most cases. As Lusitania approaches the Irish coast, it is ordered to reduce speed, and its military escort ship, Juno, is withdrawn. Churchill knows that German U-Boats are in the area. He purposely slows down the Lusitania and calls off Juno, leaving the
Lusitania as a sitting duck. A German torpedo hit ignites the munitions, causing a secondary explosion which sinks the massive liner in just 18 minutes! Nearly 1200 of its 1959 passengers were killed, including 128 Americans. The American press vilifies Germany, but makes no mention of the smuggled munitions (or perhaps a pre-planted bomb?) which really sank the Lusitania. During the 1950’s, the British Navy attempts to destroy the historical evidence of the Lusitania explosion by dropping depth charges onto the sunken liner.
IN SPITE OF THE LUSITANIA SINKING, WILSON DELAYS U.S
ENTRY INTO THE WAR
The Lusitania incident plays a role in turning American sentiment against Germany, but it is not yet time for America to make its entry. The Zionists are waiting to achieve maximum leverage before ordering Wilson to finally pull the trigger. For the time being, Wilson will just verbally condemn the Lusitania attack, while keeping America out of the war and cruising towards re-election in November, 1916. The British are disappointed. UK politicians, journalists, and the certifiably insane Teddy Roosevelt all mock Wilson as being timid. In an effort to keep America inflamed, the British fabricate a story about German school children being given a holiday to celebrate the sinking of the Lusitania. Other false tales tell of German soldiers nailing babies to church doors in Belgium! The British know that they will eventually need American help if they are to gain the advantage over The Triple Alliance / Central Powers. The Zionists know this too,
but they are biding their time, setting up the UK and the US for the right moment, and the right deal.
GERMAN KAISER TRIES TO STOP THE WAR
The Battle of Verdun rages for 10 months, resulting in 306,000 battlefield deaths (163,000 French and 143,000 German) and 500,000 wounded. That’s an average of 30,000 deaths for each of the 10 months of the battle! Taking place in north eastern France, Verdun is the longest and most devastating battle of The Great War. By the end of Verdun, the war has broken down into a stalemate, but Germany still holds an advantage. In December of 1916, Kaiser Wilhelm offers to negotiate peace with The Entente Powers. But Britain and France deliberately make impossible demands upon Germany as a condition for even negotiating. In spite of Germany’s sincere efforts to stop the madness, somebody wants this senseless bloodbath to continue. But who? ….. And why?
DIRTY BACK-ROOM DEAL KEEPS WAR GOING / ZIONISTS TO BRITAIN: “WE CAN BRING THE U.S. INTO THE WAR!” By December 1916, the Central Powers have a clear advantage. France has suffered
horrible losses. Russia is facing internal Red revolutionary chaos. Britain is under U- Boat blockade, and not one square inch of Germany has been occupied. Germany
offers generous peace terms. Basically, Kaiser Wilhelm is willing to just call off the war and return to how things were. That’s when the Zionists make their move to fulfill Herzl’s plan! Chaim Weizman and Nathan Sokolow approach the British with a dirty deal. The Zionists offer to use their international influence to bring the U.S. into the war on Britain’s side, while undermining Germany from within. The price that Britain must pay for U.S. entry is to steal Palestine from Ottoman Turkey (Germany’s ally) and allow the Jews to settle there. Though the official declaration of British support for a Jewish homeland is not to be made public until 1917 (Balfour Declaration), the agreement was, in fact, reached in December of 1916. Soon after that, Zionist agitated anti-German propaganda was unleashed in the U.S. while the Zionists and Marxists of Germany begin to undermine Germany’s war effort from within.
THE ‘FEBRUARY REVOLUTION’ TOPPLES RUSSIA’S ROYAL
As the Russian economy deteriorates and the war becomes unpopular, the ‘February Revolution’ begins. Communists, Progressive Socialists, and disaffected soldiers combine to destabilize the already weakened reign of Czar Nicholas. The Tsar is forced to abdicate his throne and put under house arrest pending exile. Jews worldwide celebrate the abdication of the Russian Tsar. A “center-left” coalition government consisting mainly of Socialists and Communists is established. A power struggle between the Democratic Socialists and the hard-core Communist (Soviet-Bolshevik) faction follows.
WILSON BREAKS HIS PROMISE AND BRINGS THE U.S. INTO
During the weeks following the Zionist-UK dirty deal to steal Palestine, the Zionists deliver on their end of the bargain. An intense propaganda campaign is suddenly unleashed in America. The 1915 Lusitania incident is resurrected, along with hype over German U-boat warfare. A German contingency plan to ally with Mexico if the U.S. enters the war (Zimmerman Note) is falsely portrayed as a plot to attack America. Citing various phony pretexts, on April 2nd, 1917, Wilson, who, according to Benjamin Freedman, was under blackmail over an affair he had when he was a Princeton professor, asks Congress for a Declaration of War. Congress complies. Regular forces of the small US military begin arriving in Europe, but it will be months before the full force of drafted men can be deployed.
EXILED REDS BEGIN RETURNING TO RUSSIA
The terrorist Red leaders that Czar Nicholas had only exiled in 1905 now begin returning to Russia. Vladimir Lenin arrives from Switzerland, via Germany, with a
stash of Zionist banker gold. Leon Trotsky arrives from New York with more money and a gang of Marxist-Jewish thugs. The Zionist-funded Communists immediately undermine the new provisional government. A violent coup is attempted in July, but the Bolshevik Reds are held back. Democratic Socialist Alexander Kerensky becomes Prime Minister as Bolshevik leaders go underground.
EDWARD BERNAYS FORMS PROPAGANDA COMMITTEE Wilson establishes the Committee on Public Information (CPI) for the purpose of manipulating public opinion in support of the war. Edward Bernays, “the father of American propaganda” is a CPI member. A nephew of the psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud, Zionist Bernays boasts of his ability to control the public mind. He calls his scientific methods for controlling public opinion, “the engineering of consent.” .In his 1928 book, Propaganda, .Bernays explains: “The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. – We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. It is they who pull the wires that control the public mind.”
Bernays and his CPI co-conspirators portray the American war effort as a holy crusade “to make the world safe for democracy”, while at the same time spreading vile hate-filled propaganda directed towards Germany and its Emperor, Wilhelm II.
“Babies & Bayonets.”
WILSON SIGNS MILITARY DRAFT INTO LAW / VICIOUS HATE PROPAGANDA USED TO ATTRACT VOLUNTEERS
America’s military is very small, but its capacity to field and equip an army is great. The unpopular draft is instituted in 1917. By the war’s end, under the idiotic pretext of “making the world safe for democracy” (Bernays’ slogan), more than 2 million unsuspecting American men will have been sent to fight for Globalism and Zionism.
BRITAIN ISSUES ‘THE BALFOUR DECLARATION’ TO BARON
The Zionists have delivered on their end of the dirty deal made with the British in
American entry into the war was delivered as promised. By formally, and publicly, issuing “The Balfour Declaration”, Lord Balfour is assuring the Zionists that Britain will fulfill its end of the deal after the war– the theft of Palestine! The Declaration is delivered to the ‘Baron’ Walter Rothschild. It reads, in part: “His Majesty’s government views with favor the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavors to facilitate the achievement of this object.” The extraction of this promise from the British is one of the main reasons why the senseless war was kept going, and why America was finally dragged in. In Israel today, Balfour Day (November 2nd) is widely celebrated. The Palestinian Arabs observe it as a day of mourning.
OCTOBER 25, 1917*
‘RED OCTOBER’ / COMMUNISTS SEIZE CONTROL OF ST. PETERSBURG! *NEW STYLE GREGORIAN CALENDAR: NOV 7, 1917
Socialist Prime Minister Kerensky struggles to keep a bad economy afloat, an unstable coalition government together, and a tired Russian nation in the war. The time is ripe for the Reds to stage another violent attempt at power. This time, Trotsky, Lenin and their evil gang will succeed. With backing from some Red troops – many of who had been brainwashed in 1905 Japanese POW camps by communist reading materials paid for by Jacob Schiff – the Capital City of Petrograd (St. Petersburg) is seized during the October Revolution, (aka “Red October”). Kerensky flees for his life and the new Soviet regime immediately moves to pull
Russia out of the war (before Germany can beat them). Outside of Petrograd, the pre- dominantly Jewish Red government is not recognized as legitimate. A bloody civil
war between the Jewish-led Reds and the Christian “Whites” is now in the making.
QUOTE TO REMEMBER:
David R. Francis, U.S. Ambassador to Russia, January 1918
‘REDS’ vs ‘WHITES’ / CIVIL WAR IN RUSSIA
After the fall of St. Petersburg to the Reds, a counter-revolutionary civil war will tear Russia apart for three more years. The various opponents of the ‘Reds’ are collectively referred to as ‘The Whites’, led mainly by Admiral Kolchak. When it becomes apparent that a Red revolutionary army composed solely of workers and some ex-Tsarist troops is far too small to put down the counter-Revolution, Trotsky institutes mandatory conscription of the peasantry into the Red Army. Opposition to Red Army conscription is overcome by terror tactics. Hostages and their families are tortured and killed when necessary to force compliance.
WILSON LAYS OUT A 14 POINT PEACE PROGRAM / GERMANY AND AUSTRIA-HUNGARY RESPOND POSITIVELY
Had it not been for America’s 1917 entry into the war, the stalemated parties would have ceased fighting on their own and millions of lives would have been saved. But it would not be until 1918 that sufficient numbers of trained American recruits would be ready to deploy in combat operations. Before fresh new rivers of American blood would be shed (117,000 Americans would die of combat or disease-related causes between April and November of 1918), both Germany and Austria-Hungary again communicate their desire for a peaceful resolution; just as they had previously been proposing to make a mutually acceptable peace with Britain and France all along. In an address before the U.S. Congress, the puppet warmonger Wilson is forced to
admit that, in response to his recent “14 Points” Statement, Germany and Austria- Hungary have indeed expressed general agreement with Wilson’s high-sounding
proposals. But in the very next breath, Wilson casually dismisses these promising peace overtures (referring to them as ‘peace utterances’) as unacceptable. Wilsons’ New York handlers (Baruch, Schiff, Warburg, Morgenthau, Brandeis etc) want their long-awaited war for Globalism (the pre-planned ‘League of Nations’) and Zionism (the British theft of Palestine); and they certainly are not about to allow Germanic peace proposals to derail the NWO Express.
The most astonishing of Wilson’s lies is his rosy description of what the eventual post-war peace is to be like. The fact that so many naive and war-weary Germans will later buy into Wilson’s empty promises, will contribute to Germany’s bizarre unconditional surrender and disarmament in November of that same year, 1918.
AFTER A SUCCESSFUL SPRING OFFENSIVE, GERMAN TROOPS ‘STABBED IN THE BACK’ BY HOME-FRONT JEWS
The Reds of Russia can’t fight a civil war at home and an external war at the same time. Lenin and Trotsky have no choice but to take Russia out of the war. Before the American troops can be deployed in large numbers, Germany diverts its troops from the pacified eastern front and stages a major western offensive. The operation begins in March with an attack on British forces in France. The Germans advance 40 miles and Paris is just 75 miles away! The Spring Offensive is so successful that Wilhelm declares March 24 a National Holiday. At this exact critical point, Marxists & Zionists in Germany stab their countrymen in the back. Marxist Trade Union leaders order factory strikes which deprive German troops of critical supplies. The Jewish owned press, which had fanned war
passions in 1914, suddenly turns sour on the war and begins ripping on the German military. German morale begins to fall quickly, as does industrial output. Recent recruits arrive at the front-line with a defeatist attitude as anti-war protests and general discontent spread throughout Germany. The Great Offensive comes to a halt just as the Americans begin to arrive. German Zionists are betraying Germany so that Palestine can be taken from Germany’s Turkish ally and given to the Jews (Balfour Declaration). German Jewish Marxists and “Democratic Socialists” also see a German defeat as a means to destabilize the nation and stage a revolution.
After the war, the treasonous betrayal of 1918 becomes known as “The Stab-in-the- Back.” Modern liberal “historians” dismiss this allegation as a “legend”, but there is
nothing mythical about it. On the brink of final victory, Germany was betrayed from within – plain & simple.
SUMMER, 1918 ‘THE YANKS ARE COMING!
It had taken about a full year for America to get its military drafted, trained, and deployed under American command. By the summer of 1918, 10,000 fresh troops arrive daily at the front. About 120,000 of them will die in the Great War, 90,000 in combat, 30,000 from disease. In addition to the badly needed fresh blood, the French and British war machines are now being re-supplied by the industrial output of mighty America.
With the breakdown of the Spring Offensive, the tide turns against Germany and its allies. The Allied counter attack, (100 Days Offensive) begins in August. At the Battle of Amiens, the Allies advance 7 miles into German-held territory in just 7 hours. Back in Germany, the Jewish Press ignores the devastating effects of the Jewish-led factory strikes and Jewish-inspired defeatism. Instead, the newspapers blame General Erich Ludendorff for the recent German setbacks!
JULY 16, 1918
TSAR NICHOLAS AND HIS ENTIRE FAMILY ARE BRUTALLYMURDERED
Tsar Nicholas II had hoped to be exiled to the UK while Kerensky was in power, but his British “ally” had refused to take him in. The Bolsheviks (Communists) now hold Nicholas, his wife Alexandra, his four daughters and young son under house arrest. Their Red captors force them to live on rations. As a boy, Nicholas had witnessed the bombing murder of his grandfather, Alexander II, in 1881. Nicholas’s tragic error was in failing to execute the Red scum, such as Lenin and Trotsky, after their failed 1905 revolution. Now, his misguided mercy returns to haunt him, and his family. On the evening of July 16/17, 1918, the royal Romanov Family was awakened at 2 AM, told to dress, and then herded into the cellar of the house in which they are being held. Moments later, Jewish Reds storm in and gun down the entire family, their doctor, and three servants in cold blood. Some of the Romanov daughters are stabbed and clubbed to death when initial gunfire fails to kill them. News of the brutal murder of the Romanovs will send shock waves throughout Russia, and all of Christian Europe.
BRITISH DIVERT MANPOWER SO AS TO FINISH OFF THE OTTOMAN
EMPIRE AND STEAL PALESTINE
Britain’s previous campaign against the Turks had ended in failure (Gallipoli). Now, with fresh and strong Americans arriving to fight the Germans in Western Europe, British troops are freed-up to concentrate on the Ottoman Empire. Britain covets the oil fields of the Middle East, but the UK also has a debt to repay to the Zionist bosses who dragged the U.S. into the war. Assisting the Brits in the effort to steal Palestine are 10,000 American Jews who enlist to fight not alongside their fellow Americans in Europe, but with the British, who intend to seize their future home, Palestine. See: The Jewish Legion During this time, British airplanes drop leaflets over Germany. Printed in Yiddish, the Balfour leaflets seek to win Jewish support in Germany by promising the Jews a ‘homeland’ in Palestine after they have won the war.
LENIN & TROTSKY ESTABLISH THE ‘COMMUNIST INTERNATIONAL’ / VIOLENT RED PLAGUE GOES GLOBAL With the Russian Civil War raging, the Communist International, known as “The Comintern”, is established in Moscow, Russia. The Comintern states openly that its intention is to fight “by all available means, including armed force, for the overthrow of the international “bourgeoisie” (the entrepreneurial class) and for the creation of an international Soviet republic (world government).” From 1918-1922, Comintern-affiliated Parties form in France, Italy, China, Germany, Spain, Belgium, the U.S. and other nations. All Communists operate under the direction of the Moscow Reds, who are themselves financed by the same Globalist-Zionist international bankers that created the Federal Reserve and brought about the Great War.
SEPTEMBER 2, 1918
THE ‘RED TERROR’ IS ANNOUNCED IN RUSSIA
The Russian Communists plan to strategically use terror to intimidate their White adversaries into submission. On orders from Lenin and Trotsky, the “Red Terror” is announced by the Jewish Red Yakov.Sverdlov. The Red Terror is marked by mass arrests in the middle of the night, executions, and hideously creative tactics of torture.
As many as 100,000 Russians are murdered in the Red Terror, carried out by Jewish- run Cheka (secret police).
Among the atrocities committed, often in view of victim’s family members, are: 40,000 White prisoners publicly hanged in the Ukraine Burning coals inserted into women’s vaginas Crucifixions Rapes of women of all ages Victims submerged in boiling oil or tar “All Power to the Workers” really means all power to the New World Order Victims doused with petrol and burned alive Victims placed in coffins filled with hungry rats Victims soaked with water, and turned into human ice-cubes in winter weather. Priests, monks, and nuns have molten lead poured down their throats The demoralizing terror takes a heavy psychological toll on the frightened Russian people. By 1922, many are broken into submission to the Red monsters of the Cheka.
NOVEMBER 11, 1918
THE GREAT WAR ENDS / ‘THE NOVEMBER CRIMINALS’
BETRAY GERMANY TO THE GLOBALISTS
By the fall of 1918, it is clear that Germany can no longer win the War. Its policy now is “to not lose it either.” As he had in 1916, the Kaiser offers to negotiate peace on terms favorable to all. Though Germany cannot win, the Allies are not able to win either. Germany’s Eastern front with Russia is closed. There are no Allied troops on German soil, the Capital, .Berlin is 900 miles safely away from the front, and the German military is very capable of defending the homeland from any invasion. But the home front is collapsing. Treasonous politicians, Marxist labor union leaders, and Zionist media moguls, combine to demoralize the people and destabilize Germany. The Kaiser is forced to step down, exiling to Holland. On November 11, ‘18, Marxists and liberals of the newly formed “Weimer Republic” (formed in the city of Weimar) lie down and roll over for the Allies!
Incredibly, at a time when the Allies do not have a single soldier on German soil, the Weimar traitors order the military to lay down their arms and withdraw from the front. Based on Wilson’s empty promises of “peace without victory”, the ‘November Criminals’ place Germany at the total mercy of the New World Order.
NOVEMBER 11, 1918
AS JEWISH COMMUNISTS CAPTURE BERLIN / KAISER FLEESTO HOLLAND
In 1915, Jewish Reds Rosa Luxemburg and Karl Liebknecht founded the “Spartacus League” (named after NWO / Illuminati founder Adam Weishaupt’s code name of “Spartacus”). In 1919, the group becomes the Communist Party of Germany. That same month, the Spartacists, aided by Jewish-Hungarian Red Bela Kun, take advantage of the post-war chaos, and stage a coup in Berlin. Kaiser Wilhelm, fearing the same fate as Tsar Nicholas, flees to Holland. He now regrets his past liberalism and denounces the “Jewish influence” that ruined Germany. The Communist takeover of Berlin is short lived as veterans known as the ‘Freikorps’ reclaim control from the Jewish Reds and their followers. Luxemburg and Liebknecht are captured and executed. The “Freikorps” has saved Germany from the same deadly fate that has befallen Russia, but the new “democratic socialist” Germany will soon face other serious problems. Just like the hard core Reds of Russia pushed aside the socialist Kerensky, the Reds of Germany will keep trying to grab absolute power from the “democratic socialists” of Weimar.
INJURED GERMAN ARMY CORPORAL REACTS BITTERLY TO
NEWS OF THE SURRENDER
As a 25-year-old ‘starving artist’, Adolph Hitler had volunteered to fight for Austria in 1914. By that time, both of his parents had passed away. Afflicted with tuberculosis during youth, Hitler was rejected for military service. Hitler then pleaded with Bavarian authorities to allow him to fight for Germany. He served with great distinction, and was promoted to Lance Corporal after being awarded the German Iron Cross 2nd Class for bravery. In October ‘16, he was badly wounded and spends two months in a military hospital. He could have stayed home but chose to return to the front-lines. In August of ‘18, Hitler is awarded the prestigious Iron Cross 1st Class. In October 1918, he is blinded by a British poison gas attack. While recovering his eyesight, Hitler hears of Germany’s shameful capitulation. He is confused and outraged. The sacrifice and suffering of the German soldiers had been for nothing. The brave unknown painter from Vienna wants answers, and he won’t rest until the ‘November Criminals’ (his term) are exposed and Germany’s honor restored.
THE PARIS PEACE CONFERENCE
The Paris Peace Conference is the meeting of the Allied victors to financially crush Germany and determine the new borders of the defeated nations. The Globalists devise a series of treaties (Paris Peace Treaties) that reshape Europe and the world. At its center are the leaders of the three ‘Great Powers’: Woodrow Wilson (U.S.), Prime Ministers David Lloyd George (U.K.) and Georges Clemenceau (France). Germany is not invited and will have no say in the final decisions. The Globalists will dismantle existing nations and create new ones. Austria-Hungary and Turkey are carved up; their disparate peoples re-assigned to new states. The Conference also creates the framework for a future World Government, The League of Nations. A Zionist delegation is also present. They had brought America into the war, and now it is time to collect payment for services rendered (Balfour Declaration). Former Arab territories of the Ottoman Empire are separated from Turkish rule and broken up into small states. Palestine is to become a British protectorate. See: British Mandate The Zionist statement establishes the Jew’s claim to a piece of Palestine, guaranteed by The League of Nations and exactly as Herzl had predicted in 1897! Jews from all over the world may now immigrate to British Palestine, but in controlled numbers. The Arabs of Palestine (a 95% majority) were not consulted about this deal, and they are angry.
GERMANY IS GANG-RAPED BY THE ‘TREATY OF VERSAILLES’
Out of the Paris Peace Conference comes the barbaric and infamous “Treaty of Versailles”. The cruelty of the Treaty is today recognized even by liberal historians. With Germany disarmed by its new government, the Globalists & Zionists proceed to rape the German nation; a nation that did not want war, had tried to avert the war, and had offered to make peace on numerous occasions after the war had begun. The Treaty contains 440 clauses, 414 of which are dedicated towards punishing
Germany for a war that was imposed upon her.
Among the key provisions that a disarmed Germany and Austria (Treaty of St. Germaine) are forced to accept at gunpoint and while under a hunger blockade are:
Germany must accept 100% responsibility for the war.
German armed forces restricted to 100,000 men.
The industrial German Rhineland will be occupied by French troops for 15 years.
Kaiser Wilhelm II (safe in Holland) should be tried for “offenses against international morality”.
The German region of West Prussia is given to the new nation of Poland. Two million West Prussians are forcefully expelled from their homes, and East
Prussia is left isolated from the rest of Germany!
The German Sudetenland region is put under the rule of the new nation of ‘Czechoslovakia’.
The new state of Austria is forbidden from uniting with their brothers in Germany.
Germany is stripped of African colonies. Britain, France, & Belgium take them.
The coal-rich Saar region of Germany is placed under League of Nations control for 15 years. During this time, its coal is to be shipped to France.
The Baltic Sea port city of Danzig is separated from Germany and declared a “free city.”
Germany is forced to pay massive war reparations in the form of money and natural resources. The crushing debt payments (equal to 1 Trillion dollars in modern currency) will devastate the German economy and soon cause a hyper-inflationary monetary collapse. Defenseless Germany is kept under the hunger blockade until she agrees to the harsh terms. About 100,000 Germans die as a result of the post-armistice food blockade. The unjust and inhumane Treaty of Versailles will breed resentment and anger for years to come.
NY Times:As Right-Wing Rhetoric Escalates, So Do Threats and Violence
Both threats of political violence and actual attacks have become a steady reality of American life. Experts blame dehumanizing and apocalyptic language.
In the wake of that very strange “FBI raid” on Trump’s Florida estate last week, the “latest thing” talking points — with Sulzberger’s Times at the fore — have been dutifully distributed to the deranged denizens of the tyrannical kingdom of Libtardia. From the hallowed halls of quackademia, to the camous coffee shops, to printed propaganda, to the tell-lie-vision, to the Social Media activists, to the homosexual bath houses — the thoughtless Marxist Mantra now is all about “right wing violence.”
From the article:“Scholars who study political violence point to a common thread: the heightened use of bellicose, dehumanizing and apocalyptic language, particularly by prominent figures in right-wing politics and media.
Several right-wing or Republican figures reacted to the search of Mar-a-Lago not only with demands to dismantle the F.B.I., but also with warnings that the action had triggered “war.”
This “latest thing” about “right wing violence” offers us an excellent “teachable moment”to set the historical record straight as to the history of political violence in America — a murderous phenomenon that always has been, and still is, almost exclusively a left wing problem.
A trip down memory-hole lane for just a few past events.
There are plenty more incidents of Leftist violence — worldwide as well — always committed under the orders of and with the protection of “higher powers” that we can add to that list; but you get the point. This “right wing violence” theme is just another classic case of psychopaths and liars projecting their evil and their insanity onto us.
And mind you, that’s just the low-level violence carried out by the foot soldiers. Far more serious and deadly is the state-ordered military violence that has been imposed upon so many millions of innocent people by the very same Globalist Cabal that is now sanctimoniously wringing its hands over the mere language that some us “right wing” patriots are using.
Have a look at this list of “violent” acts — all of them genocidal and all of them enthusiastically cheered on by the oh-so peace-loving “paper of record” and the rest of the Jurisprudence while we of the true “far right” were yelling “Stop!”

Oceans of blood! Ah, so “non violent” is the Globalist-Marxist Left, eh? Frankly, a bit of actual violence directed at the devils who have been physically and mentally torturing innocent humanity for so long wouldn’t be such a bad thing. But let’s leave the killing to the White Hats — who will do it legally. I just hope we get to see some of these characters executed on TV one day — journalists included.
As Russia actually do launch an invasion or “special operation” in Ukraine, I thought now was a good time to recap on how we got here.
The historical, political and ethnic divisions in Ukraine go back decades, if not centuries, but we don’t have the space for that kind of deep-dive. For now, I’ll be keeping it to three simple parts: The fall of Viktor Yanukovych, the Crimean referendum, and the ensuing civil war which puts the region in a direct path to the events of today.
This piece is intended as a quick reference guide to help get friends and family up to speed on the recent history of Ukraine, a handy index of contemporary sources, or a refresher course for those who’ve forgotten the details.
not only for the Soviet Union but for other European countries as well it is important to have guarantees that if the United States keeps its presence in Germany within the framework of NATO, not an inch of NATO’s present military jurisdiction will spread in an eastern direction.”
The Charter on a Distinctive Partnership is signed by representatives of both NATO and Ukraine. This document is a long-term agreement that Ukraine will move gradually into cooperation with NATO and eventually become a member. This is in direct violation of the assurances given above.
NATO publishes their NATO-Ukraine Action Plan, re-affirming their commitment to “closer ties” with Ukraine, and outlining a long term plan for “reforms” in Ukraine that will make it suitable for “full Euro-Atlantic integration”.
US Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice and Ukrainian Foreign Minister Volodymyr Ohryzko sign the US-Ukraine Charter on Strategic Partnership, the charter “emphasizes the continued commitment of the United States to support enhanced engagement between NATO and Ukraine”.
Viktor Yanukovych, leader of Ukraine’s Party of Regions, wins the presidential election and is named Ukraine’s fourth President. Yanukovych is the former governor of Donetsk, the region of his birth, and wins office with a huge percentage of the vote from ethnically Russian east Ukraine.
As one of his first acts as President, Yanukovych signs an agreement with Russia, extending their lease on the Black Sea naval base in Crimea until at least 2042. This extension is met with consternation and rebuke in the Western press, with one paper asking:
The End of Ukraine’s EU Integration?”
Writing in the Guardian, Luke Harding called it:
the most concrete sign yet that Ukraine is now back under Russia’s influence following Yanukovych’s victory in February’s presidential elections.
Also noting that “the lease extension is likely to increase opposition to Yanukovych in Ukraine’s western provinces.”
Ukraine’s parliament votes through a new bill barring the country from joining any military bloc. This, as the BBC noted at the time, effectively ends any prospect of Ukraine joining NATO, killing a plan that the West had worked on for 13 years.
However, the elections also mark the first time Ukraine elected a far-right MP to its parliament, with Oleh Tyahnybok’sSvoboda party winning 37 seats and over 10% of the vote (entirely from the ethnically Ukrainian west of the country).
The Ukrainian cabinet unanimously approves the draft of the long-awaited Ukraine-EU Association Agreement. Yanokuych is expected to officially sign the agreement at the EU’s “Eastern Partnership Summit” in Vilnius on November 28th and 29th.
Russia – Ukraine’s major creditor and biggest trade partner – warns that this treaty would “cause chaos”, break the terms of an existing treaty between Ukraine and Russia, and lead to Ukraine’s economy collapsing. As a counteroffer, they suggest Ukraine sign a new deal with the Eurasian Economic Union.
The Ukrainian government issues a decree suspending preparations for the association agreement (AA). Deputy Prime Minister Yuriy Boyko warns the current terms of the agreement would “seriously damage the economy”.
“Pro European” demonstrations begin in Maidan square within days of the decree being issued. A poll run by the Kyiv Post finds an even split on joining the EU vs the Eurasian customs union: 39% for, 37% against.
Yanukovych attends the Eastern Partnership Summit on the 28th, but does not sign the Association Agreement, instead suggesting a new tri-lateral agreement between Ukraine, Russia and the EU. Russia is open to negotiating such a deal, but EU rejects this offer completely.
Despite not signing the AA, Yanukovych tells the press that Ukraine still intends to work for closer ties with the EU: “an alternative for reforms in Ukraine and an alternative for European integration do not exist…We are walking along this path and are not changing direction”.
Prime Minister Mykola Azarov echoed this: “I affirm with full authority that the negotiating process over the Association Agreement is continuing, and the work on moving our country closer to European standards is not stopping for a single day”.
Nevertheless, this is ubiquitously covered in the Western media as Yanukoych “refusing to sign the association agreement in favour of closer ties with Russia”.
When the police came, unlike the Muscovites, they didn’t leave. They swung chains and threw Molotov cocktails and built barricades in the streets. They took over municipal buildings. They nearly toppled the city’s main statue of Lenin. They sang the national anthem and chanted “Revolution!”
That same day Foreign Affairs, the official publication of the Council on Foreign Relations, runs an article headlined: “Yanukovych Must Go”
Also that same day, former President Leonid Kravchuk hosts a “roundtable” political discussion with members of all parties and all of Ukraine’s past presidents, the aim is to diffuse the crisis. The talks have Yanukovych’s blessing, the opposition refuses to attend.
This includes 180 million dollars on “development programs” for “judges, members of parliament [and] political parties”.
16/1/2014 – After weeks of stalemate, the Ukrainian parliament passes ten new bills into law. Known collectively as the “Anti Protest Laws”, these laws allow a strict crackdown on protest activity, including removal of parliamentary immunity from MPs promoting violence and stripping of drivers license from those that used vehicles to obstruct public roads.
25/1/2014 – President Yanukovych reaches out to opposition leaders, offering them a power-sharing agreement that would install Yatseniyuk as Prime Minister and Vitaliy Klitschko as his deputy. The opposition refuses the offer.
7/2/2014 – A recorded phone call between Nuland and Pyatt is leaked to the press, famously dubbed the “fuck the EU” call.
In the conversation, dated January 28th, Nuland and Pyatt discuss at length the structure of the Ukrainian cabinet once Yanukovych is gone. This is still 25 days before Yanukovych was removed from power
A poll published that same day by the Kyiv Post found more Ukrainians opposed the Maidan protests than supported them.
19/2/2014 – President Yanukovych declares a “truce” in a joint statement signed by the three main opposition leaders. The statement committed to negotiation for a lasting peace.
20/2/2014 – Snipers open fire on the crowd in Maidan Square, resulting in at least sixty deaths. Both protesters and police officers are killed in the gunfire. EuroNews reports that the “truce is shattered” mere hours after it was signed.
The agreement required the creation of a temporary “National Unity Government”, to be replaced following new Presidential Elections by the end of 2014. It also called for a full investigation into the shootings on the Maidan the previous day.
Yanukovych pledged that the government would not declare a state of emergency or call in the military, and would pull all police back from the site of the protests, in return for protesters surrendering all public buildings and illegal weapons.
Leaders of the militant protesters – including Dmitryo Yarosh of the neo-Nazi Right Sector – rejected the agreement, and threatened to storm the Parliament and Presidental Residence if Yanukoyvch did not resign immediately.
22/2/2014 – Rather than abiding by the terms of the agreement, once the police pulled back the protesters stormed government buildings and seized control of Kiev. Yanukovych flees to the city of Kharkiv in eastern Ukraine.
A contemporary Time article reported:
Ukraine’s beleaguered President Viktor Yanukovych fled Kiev Saturday as protestors took full control of Ukraine’s capital, signaling a dramatic turn in the three-month crisis just hours after the signing of an European Union-sponsored peace deal […] As police abandoned their posts across the capital, the opposition established control over key intersections and captured the presidential palace, setting up a perimeter around Yanukovych’s former residence
Within hours of the storming of the city, the Ukrainian parliament votes to strip Yanukovych of his office by 328 votes to 0, with over 120 MPs absent from the vote. This vote was unconstitional and not a legally binding form of impeachment, in any way.
From the eastern city of Kharkiv, Yanukovych gives a televised speech, declaring he was still the “legitimate elected President of Ukraine“, and that he had no intention of fleeing the country.
25/2/2014 – Yanukovych’s own Party of the Regions disavows him in parliament, and he flies to Russia, claiming his life is in danger.
27/2/2014 – Arseniy Yatsenyuk is sworn in as Ukraine’s interim Prime Minister, a post he would hold onto following elections in May 2014.
Vitaly Klitschko is relegated to the somewhat lower office of Mayor of Kiev, and Oleh Tyahnybok resumed his office as a simple MP.
Ukraine’s new government takes shape exactly as predicted by Nuland in her phone call of January 28th.
The same day Anders Fogh Rasmussen, Secretary General of NATO, tells the press that“the door is still open” for Ukraine to join the military bloc.
28/2/2014 – UK current events show Newsnight runs this segment, titled “The Neo-Nazi Threat in New Ukraine”:
Evidence emerges that the snipers shooting at the crowds were not employed by the Ukrainian government, but were shooting at both sides in an effort to stoke chaos.
This evidence is presented to the EU’s Foreign Policy Chief Catherine Ashton by Estonia Foreign Minister Urmas Paet in a phone call that is later leaked to the press, and confirmed to be genuine by the Estonian government.
Neither the EU, nor the new government of Ukraine, makes any effort to investigate this evidence or bring the killers to justice.
Mismanagement of the COVID-19 crisis has initiated a socioeconomic chain reaction that has only begun to play out. Nevertheless, this story has a silver lining: the chance to make the world a better place.
But it has to start with an honest assessment of how we got here, and point to a positive course of action…
Imagine ten years ago if someone described to you what the world would look like as we entered the 2020’s. Would you have believed them?
Interesting times eh? It’s about to get a lot more interesting.
History will remember this decade as a critical turning point. The end of an era.
2020 was the year that ideas like this went mainstream. Headlines that used to be relegated to the lunatic fringe were now being promoted by the corporate media.
Then of course we had the COVID-19 debacle. Though the ‘authorities’ would blame the disease itself, it was their ill-conceived response that actually served as the catalyst.
Their short sighted policies initiated a chain reaction. Some consequences of this chain reaction are inevitable (like a bullet that has left the barrel of a gun). Others hang in the balance. There will not, however, be any going back to normal.
This story has a silver lining; a chance to make the world a better place. But it has to start with an honest assessment of how we got here, and point to a positive course of action.
In the winter of 2020 as COVID-19 went exponential a panic was spreading even faster.
Those who hatched this plan had made no provision for a pandemic that would linger on for months or years. They didn’t even account for the socioeconomic chain reaction that the first round of lock downs would set in motion.
By the summer of 2020 flash points of violence and social unrest were flaring up in cities around the world. Pent up frustrations were building, for obvious reasons. Billions of people had just spent months locked in their houses.
Most stress relieving activities had been banned: social gatherings, sports, time with friends at restaurants or bars… even places of worship were restricted. This was a powder keg waiting for a match.
Politicians obviously saw the danger in this equation. When millions of people are suddenly left hungry and homeless that’s a recipe for revolution. Something had to be done, and quickly. So they did something. Boy did they do something.
When all you have is a hammer every problem looks like a nail, and the governments around the world were looking at a very, very large nail. The fiscal stimulus programs of 2020 were epic; absolutely off the charts. By June over 18 trillion had been disbursed globally.
Then there were the forgivable loans – via the paycheck protection program and similar schemes around the world – which were supposed to help prop up small businesses. Some of these loans ended up being extended to some rather strange small businesses.
If you’ve never heard of Quantitative Easing (or QE) you might want to look that up. The short version is that when central banks purchase assets new money is created.
The money that is transferred to the asset holders account is literally typed into existence. These asset holders typically reinvest this new money, causing asset prices (including the stocks) to rise. Poor people don’t typically own these kinds of assets so it’s basically welfare for the rich.
And while it’s wonderful that we can provide a such a nice safety net for the upper crust of society it does have one little side effect: inflating markets with liquidity creates asset bubbles. It’s like filling up a water balloon more and more… till its so big you can see through it. Sooner or later it always pops.
The first round of QE started in 2009 after the housing bubble collapsed. Cutting interest rates to zero just wasn’t enough. 2020 brought us round four (affectionately referred to by some as QE Infinity).
In this round the Fed would take their liquidity experiment to a whole new level; buying financial assets never touched during QE1, 2, or 3 including corporate debt and etfs.
In one month they purchased more assets than they had during the entire first year following the 2009 crisis.
With unemployment numbers still hovering at great depression levels and hopes of a quick, V-shaped recovery evaporating, all eyes were on governments and central banks. The question was not if there would be more stimulus and money printing, the real question was how big it would be this time.
Would it be enough? No one seemed to be asking what would happen if they went too far.
Our fearless leaders had painted themselves into a corner at this point. If unemployment benefits, mortgage forbearance and eviction moratoriums weren’t extended, those in power would soon be facing millions of homeless, hungry and angry people.
With violence and unrest already smoldering in many major cities, this would be like throwing gasoline on a fire. Extending these protections however, would not be without a price.
Eviction moratoriums and mortgage forbearance programs had temporarily prevented millions from being suddenly made homeless. But with no rent coming in, landlords would soon be defaulting on mortgages en masse, as would many homeowners and businesses.
By imposing sanctions on any individual, company or bank which did business with Chinese officials enforcing the new security law, this legislation set the stage for Washington to cut China’s access to the dollar; a move which would ultimately divide the world into Yuan and Dollar based currency blocs.
Spoiler alert: it doesn’t end well for Uncle Sam.
These economic provocations were accompanied by multiple rounds of good old fashion saber rattling.
It’s worth noting that by this time these islands were fully militarized and operational; complete with ports, runways and other facilities that gave the Chinese a clear strategic advantage.
At this stage the rest of the world was beginning to suspect that Uncle Sam was experiencing some form of cognitive decline. He wasn’t playing four dimensional chess here. He didn’t even seem to be playing with a full deck.
This was like a drunk guy poking a tiger with a stick (probably not going to end well).
The provocations would continue on multiple fronts: embassies ordered to close, Chinese companies sanctioned or banned from operating in the U.S. Anything and everything connected to China was open game.
China condemned each of these provocations but they didn’t take the bait. Their response would come when was in their strategic interests. They would choose their own timing. If direct conflict could be averted long enough, the U.S. was likely to collapse on its own. The war could be won without firing a shot.
The high probability of war when an emerging power threatens the dominance of an international hegemon.
Meanwhile back in the U.S. of A. the violence and mayhem in the streets was intensifying. Businesses, government buildings and vehicles had been burning virtually every night for months on end. Protesters and counter protesters were now bringing semiautomatic weapons to the scene.
By September there were multiple fatalities on each side.
Perception of these events was increasingly polarized. The left and the right were no long behaving like political factions of a nation. They had devolved into hostile tribes fighting for control of a territory.
A radicalized strain of thought that directly endorsed violence as a political tool was metastasizing among a new generation of activists. A growing contingent had convinced themselves that they could win in an armed conflict. This was a serious miscalculation.
(If you try to outgun the police and the military you’re going to have a bad time).
Here humanity approached a crossroad. Probabilities were coalescing as the crisis progressed.
Those who saw the stakes would feel an urgency. With every moment of inaction the likelihood of a tragic ending increased. Something had to be done.
What could an ordinary individual do to improve the outcome? Could the trajectory of history really be altered?
Some questions are best answered with a riddle.
Rather than predicting what comes next, let’s tell a story. This story has multiple endings and you get to choose.
It’s been said that every nation is three meals away from a revolution.
Never before had this principle been tested in so many countries simultaneously as it was in the 2020’s.
At first many held onto the hope that everything would soon go back to normal, but as the long term realities of the decade set in, more and more people would come to the same startling conclusion: the ‘authorities’ were out of their depth.
There was no exit strategy. The situation was not ‘under control’…
In the early stages of the crisis, when the first few governments were collapsing, very few realized how the conflux of economic, geopolitical and social variables were coalescing in a perfect storm.
But when G20 nations started dropping like flies the phenomenon it became impossible to ignore. Like dominoes falling, the collapse of one major economy destabilized every country connected to it. In the age of globalization very few would be spared.
What began as a trickle suddenly accelerated as the downfall of the U.S. dollar precipitated an unprecedented shock to global supply chains.
Imports ground to a halt all around the world. In countries dependent on outsourced food production and manufacturing this translated into widespread shortages and social unrest. In this environment extremist movements of all stripes flourished.
A small handful of nations would weather this storm peacefully. Rather than tearing themselves apart from within or transforming into totalitarian dictatorships, they would unify and adapt.
As economic and monetary shocks disrupted global supply chains and trade, these countries would quickly reorganize their economies to replace imports with local production – starting with food and essentials. Reducing dependence on fossil fuels was an important element of this transition.
To accomplish this feat every aspect of modern life was re-imagined.
Lawns were replaced by gardens; golf courses converted to orchards. Waste streams were recuperated to minimize losses. It wasn’t easy, but these countries pulled through, and before the decade was over, they were building regional trade networks that hadn’t existed before the crisis.
A lot of wealthy countries didn’t do so well in the second phase of the crisis; the part where real hardship kicked in. Populations accustomed to easy living and constant entertainment had a very short fuse.
As shortages and rationing became the new normal and homeless encampments grew, protests would morph into riots, armed uprisings and civil wars.
Governments that were ill prepared for these challenges crumbled quickly; some into the hands of populist movements, others to military juntas. In most cases the replacement was more brutal and repressive that the old system.
The underlying paradigm was rarely questioned at all.
Many regimes would extend their lifespan by totalitarian means. Emergency powers established under lockdown would prove invaluable here.
Policies previously justified by public health would now be implemented in the name of national security; control mechanisms adapted and repurposed to crack down on dissidents.
It was every petty dictator’s wet dream: granular control over every aspect of human behavior and interaction. No one allowed to gather in public without permission. Every contact tracked and traced. If you’re outside you better be prepared to show your papers.
This approach was most effective when the latent fears and hatreds of the population could be rallied against an enemy.
Convince a people that they are under attack and it’s easy to unify them under a flag.
Rather than rioting in the streets, impoverished youth can be conscripted into the military.
Their identities shattered and remolded; conditioned to obey; trained to kill on command.
Send them abroad to steal land and resources.
Use them at home to crush dissent.
War is – after all – the health of the state.
Regardless of which axis prevailed in these conflicts the result would be the same.
A new totalitarian order was the universal prescription; the only cure for the chaos.
The world’s first truly global currency would replace the dollar. This currency would be completely digital; coins and bank notes phased out. Every single transaction conducted using this currency would be recorded on a block blockchain.
Unlike the original cryptocurrencies this blockchain was controlled by a central authority and monitored with AI. Economic privacy a thing of the past.
It was the holy grail of ruling elite, the precursor for global governance with teeth, but before they even had time to properly congratulate themselves, their house of cards was already catching wind.
As living conditions deteriorate, and fear and uncertainty prevail, certain psychological forces are always unleashed. These forces are like the incoming waves of a tsunami.
Once they gather momentum there can be no stopping them.
Throughout history there have been individuals and movements who rode these waves; channeling the tides of human sentiment towards a course of action. Though the science of crowd psychology is complex and nuanced, the application of its principles is mind bogglingly simple.
So simple in fact, that intellectuals typically recoil from them, while bonafide idiots wield them easily (and to great effect).
Like riding a tsunami on a surfboard, attempting to redirect the momentum of a society is highly dangerous.
The crowd can lift a leader to great heights, but one mistake can leave them hanging from a lamp post. Those who manage to navigate these forces usually guard the formula carefully. Failure to do so would threaten the foundations of their power.
This time around however, humanity flipped the script.
In the age of the internet the science of crowd psychology and color revolutions had been available to the public for some time now, but very few saw the utility in studying it.
However as the 2020’s progressed, and it became more and it became more clear that that those in power were pushing civilization toward a dystopian nightmare, a contingent of activists would reverse engineer the tools being used against them.
The work of Gustave Le Bon and Edward Bernays would be modernized and tempered with a cultural code:
the positive application of human instinct.
The instinctual psychology of species can be harnessed for good or for evil. In the modern era it has been weaponized by the military industrial complex for regime change, and by corporations for marketing and public relations.
The same principles however can applied to create rather than destroy. Visions and values can spread like viruses from mind to mind, and from place to place.
The contagion of a single idea can inspire generations towards a new paradigm.
To topple a government is surprisingly easy when conditions are right. Silver spoon politicians who’ve never served or worked a day in their life can easily lose the respect and obedience of military and law enforcement. When that happens, it’s game over.
The question that always comes up in such events (usually as an afterthought) is what will you replace the old system with?
There is nothing more dangerous than armed men with utopian dreams. Sometimes the cure can be worse than the disease.
History provides many cautionary tales. To avoid the trap of oppressed rising up to become the oppressor the paradigm that facilitates this dynamic has to be questioned.
The vast majority of modern governments, businesses and organizations utilize a social structure called vertical collectivism. Vertical collectivism is top down system of organizing human groups which amplifies power by stacking layers of authority in pyramids.
The result is a highly stratified society where those on the bottom have little or no say, and are left to fight over scraps from above.
Vertical collectivism is apolitical. Capitalists companies and Communist regimes both use it without contradiction, as do republics that call themselves democracies.
The vertical model was born of military strategy. A general or warlord alone can only control a small army, but by using subordinate officers in layers of rank, a single individual, or a small ruling class can dominate millions of people and vast territories.
This is why a state is often defined as the monopoly on violence within a region.
Vertical collectivism didn’t spread to every corner of the globe because it improved peoples lives.
Vertical collectivism spread like a cancer because it is brutally effective in the in the context of war.
Every culture that it encountered was either crushed on the battlefield or forced to copy the model to survive. The dawn of civilization – as many euphemistically refer to it – is a story of conquest and colonialization that began approximately 10,000 years ago and continues to this day.
This was not however, the beginning of the human story.
For over 300,000 years – long before the first empires of Asia and Europe began to absorb surrounding tribes – humans organized themselves using a very different model.
Rather than building top down, stratified societies that concentrated wealth and power in the hands of an upper class, these cultures organized horizontally.
Organizing horizontally didn’t mean that there were no leaders.
The authority and instincts are far older than humanity.
Like all social animals, our species is hardwired to follow those who demonstrate courage and intelligence.
However in horizontal societies disparities of wealth and power were significantly smaller.
The leaders and councils responsible for group decisions were not insulated by armies and law enforcement conditioned to obey without question.
Defense and order were maintained by an armed citizenry, bound by a code of conduct. This dynamic forced leaders to be directly accountable to the population.
Their power was rooted in their ability to communicate with the people, build consensus and chart a course of action to the benefit of all.
The fact that horizontal societies required leaders to work with the public in such a personal way had one obvious disadvantage: it limited the size of the group. After all, why would someone voluntarily follow someone far away that they never met?
There is however, a way around this limitation. By forming federations horizontal societies can expand their sphere influence significantly.
An example of this adaptation can be found in the Iroquois confederacy which unified 5 tribes for hundreds of years in the region that came to be called New York.
Each member tribe in the confederacy had their own culture and and internal governance, but a set of shared values enabled them to cooperate economically and militarily. If one tribe was attacked they quickly mounted a common defense.
Many historians believe that United States federal system was based on the Iroquois model. One significant difference however, was that the Iroquois had no central government. There was a central council comprised of representatives from each tribe, but this council had no power to enforce its will.
Each representative was tasked with building a consensus that would resonate with their people.
A modernized adaptation of this Iroquois model gained traction in the mid 2020s as the gears of globalization ground to a halt. While governments proved incapable of solving the most basic problems, decentralized networks were replacing the system from the ground up.
They would start by organizing local food production in their communities and gradually expand cooperation to other sectors.
Their revolution was driven by an idea worth spreading. Not only was it possible to live on this planet without destroying it, this way of life was more abundant and fulfilling than the alternative. There was no need to wait for governments to act. Humans are perfectly capable of organizing themselves.
Those that succeeded became epicenters of a new renaissance; attracting skilled workers and artists from all around the world.
Some of these travelers would put down permanent roots.
Others would return to their homeland to plant seeds of their own.
From the fragments of fallen empires new nations would be born.
From the ashes of dying cultures new cultures would rise.
The great collapse of the 2020’s was not the end of the world.
It was the end of an era, and the dawn of a new one…
Time To Flip The Script
Remember how we said this story has multiple endings?
We’re going take one of them to a literal extreme; and we’re going to do it in the real world.
Now if you’re living in a crowded city center, maybe pushing the boundaries starts by planting a garden in your front yard, organizing a community compost, or speaking out against a war.
However it’s important to understand that in the era we have entered the stakes are rising, and the trajectory we’re on needs to be altered significantly.
This implies fundamental changes in the way we livRemember how we said this story has multiple endings? We’re going take one of them to a literal extreme; and we’re going to do it in the real world.

Now if you’re living in a crowded city center, maybe pushing the boundaries starts by planting a garden in your front yard, organizing a community compost, or speaking out against a war.
However it’s important to understand that in the era we have entered the stakes are rising, and the trajectory we’re on needs to be altered significantly. This implies fundamental changes in the way we live, not just gestures in right direction.
You have to decide what kind of story you and your family want to be a part of. In some cases this might involve immigrating to another country. Others will be more inclined to stay, and fight to change the outcome at home. One way or the other you’ll want to be in a place where you can grow food, and you’ll want to be set up to do this without agrochemical inputs or fossil fuels.
You also don’t want to be reliant on the grid. Utilities can and will go down. Some will be shocked by how long they can stay down.
These aren’t the kind of lifestyle changes you want to make at the last moment, or put off until you can do something large scale. Far better to start transitioning to a new way of life right now. Do what you can with what you have. Join forces with others to amplify.
The learning curve for this kind of transition can be steep. There are a lot of practical skills that we should be taught in school but aren’t. Most kids when they graduate… don’t know how to build a house, or grow a garden, or even how to make bread.
The best way to learn this stuff isn’t really in a classroom anyway. People learn best by example, anchored with hands on experience.
That’s why we built this place. You could think of it as an experiential learning center / maker space. This whole landscape is a laboratory.
Here we can put ideas to an extreme test.
Rather that just reading about this stuff or watching a presentation, volunteers and travelers from all over the world come here to do it themselves. They get their hands dirty in the field: planting plants, working with animals, building crazy structures like these.
They also get to experience first hand what it takes to self organize and live in a different way.
The experience is extreme, because the challenges we face are real. We’re completely off-grid here. Our electricity comes from the sun. We have running water by pumping from the spring up to a tank on the hill.
It’s also up to us to us to maintain the road and drainage. Up here when there’s a problem we have to put our heads together and find a way to solve it.
To put this in perspective, our first long term volunteer was here when we sustained a direct hit from hurricane Maria. He also assisted in the recovery and became part of the story.
Talk is cheap. If you really want to change the world you have to be able to show people how.
We’re doing this here in the Commonwealth of Dominica cause these people are moving in the right direction, and their culture holds some of the keys to the solution.
But where ever you decide to make your stand now is the time to get serious about food security.
Our challenge in the next phase is to grow more and develop local production systems to replace imports.
NY Times: Virginia Removes Robert E. Lee Statue From State Capital The Confederate memorial was erected in 1890.
Whether you’re an American or not, this ugly event down in Lee’s rapidly “diversifying” Virginia offers us a good “teachable moment” for remembering (and honoring) the memory of the real General Lee.
Robert E Lee graduated as the 2nd highest ranked student in his class from the West Point Military Academy in 1829 — where his focus was on studying engineering. He further distinguished himself by not incurring a single “demerit” during his four years of study — a distinction shared by only 45 other cadets during the academy’s 220 year history.
Year later, as a staff officer, Lee earned his name as a tactician during in the Mexican–American War (1846–1848). His reconnaissance was instrumental in several American victories by mapping out attack routes which the Mexicans left undefended because they had assumed that the terrain was impassable.
Lee, though himself having owned a small number of slaves, described slavery as a “moral and political evil” which would pass in due time. Ironically, much like the newly-elected U.S. President Abraham Lincoln, Lee was as opposed to southern secession as he was to the dangerous idea of radically abolishing slavery all at at once (because it would trigger a war). Indeed, it was those extreme forces — promulgated by agents linked to Europe (Rothschild) and warned about by Andrew Jackson a few decades earlier — which slowly but surely inched the United States toward the coming disaster. When the U.S. Civil War between North and South finally broke out in 1861, Lee was offered the position of Major General in the Union Army by Lincoln’s advisor, Francis Blair. Lee replied:
“Mr. Blair, I look upon secession as anarchy. If I owned the four millions of slaves in the South I would sacrifice them all to the Union; but how can I draw my sword upon Virginia, my native state?”
With heavy heart, Lee, and in spite of his disappointment with pro-slavery southern secessionists, Lee chose to fight for the South — commanding the Confederate States Army and personally leading the Army of Northern Virginia. He became a legend, respected on both sides, by establishing himself as an inspiring leader and brilliant tactician in the face of the superior Union numbers and resources that would ultimately prevail and lead to Lee’s surrender to General Ulysses S. Grant in 1865.
Yes, Lee was a brilliant man and a great general — but so was Genghis Monster. There is much more to the man that ought to remembered, and honored. To get a proper sense of who Lee was and what made him so special, let’s go to “original source history” — the best form of analysis — and familiarize ourselves with some of his own words and inner thoughts.
* (Lee’s advice to a new mother) Teach your child to deny himself.
* Duty then is the sublimest word in the English language. You should do your duty in all things. You can never do more, you should never wish to do less.
* If a friend asks a favor, you should grant it if it is reasonable; if not, tell him plainly why you cannot: You will wrong him and wrong yourself by equivocation of any kind.
* Get correct views of life, and learn to see the world in its true light. It will enable you to live pleasantly, to do good, and, when summoned away, to leave without regret.
* In this enlightened age, there are few I believe, but what will acknowledge, that slavery as an institution is a moral & political evil in any country. It is useless to expatiate on its disadvantages.
* We should live, act, and say nothing to the injury of anyone. It is not only best as a matter of principle, but it is the path to peace and honor.
* If you have any fault to find with anyone, tell him, not others, of what you complain; there is no more dangerous experiment than that of undertaking to be one thing before a man’s face and another behind his back
* In all my perplexities and distresses, the Bible has never failed to give me light and strength.
* Never do a wrong thing to make a friend–or to keep one.
* I cannot trust a man to control others who cannot control himself.
* In this enlightened age, there are few I believe, but what will acknowledge, that slavery as an institution, is a moral & political evil in any Country.
* Secession is nothing but revolution. The framers of our Constitution never exhausted so much labor, wisdom, and forbearance in its formation, and surrounded it with so many guards and securities, if it was intended to be broken by every member of the Confederacy at will.
* What a cruel thing is war; to separate and destroy families and friends, and mar the purest joys and happiness God has granted us in this world; to fill our hearts with hatred instead of love for our neighbors, and to devastate the fair face of this beautiful world!
* My heart bleeds at the death of every one of our gallant men.
* So far from engaging in a war to perpetuate slavery, I am rejoiced that slavery is abolished. I believe it will be greatly for the interests of the South. So fully am I satisfied of this, as regards Virginia especially, that I would cheerfully have lost all I have lost by the war, and have suffered all I have suffered, to have this object attained.
* The idea that the Southern people are hostile to the negroes and would oppress them, if it were in their power to do so, is entirely unfounded. They have grown up in our midst, and we have been accustomed from childhood to look upon them with kindness.
A strong “straight arrow” Christian moral character and unshakable senses of duty, honor and courage were the true pillars of Lee’s enduring legend. In short, General Lee represented everything that today’s corrupt “powers that be” (cough cough) hate and fear in a man. And THAT, boys and girls, is why the Marxist scum (under guidance from forces above) have defaced and removed his statue.
As we all know, Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering the men (and many women now too!) who died while serving in America’s armed forces. The holiday, which is observed on the last Monday of May, originated after the U.S. Civil War, in 1868 as Decoration Day.
Families of the Northern dead would decorate the graves of their kinfolk with flags and flowers. By 1900, competing Union and Confederate holiday traditions, celebrated on different days, had merged into a single Memorial Day, which was eventually extended to honor all Americans who died in military service. Since World War II, the stupid cliche of “thank our veterans for our freedom” was unofficially attached to the day. Of course, Americans haven’t died in defense of freedom since the War of 1812.
So, this Memorial Day, with all due respect to the veterans who died under false pretenses, let us dispense with all this “thank you for our freedom” bullshit and declare a more historically accurate “gratitude” to the deserving parties.
1898: Thank you Globalists for the gift of the Spanish-American War in which 2,450 Americans were killed so that the New World Order gang could establish a presence in the Asian Pacific (Philippines & Guam).
1898-1913: Thank you Globalists for the gift of the Philippines War in which 4,200 American were killed so that the Filipinos, to whom you promised independence in exchange for rising up against Spain, could be kept under control.
1900-1901: Thank you Globalists for the Boxer Rebellion in which 131 Americans were killed so that the Chinese could be kept in line.
1917-1918: Thank you Globalists and Zionists for World War I in which 120,000 Americans were killed so that the first steps of world government could be taken in Europe (League of Nations) and Palestine could be stolen from the Turks and their Arab subjects.
1941-1945: Thank you Globalists and Zionists for World War II in which 410,000 Americans were killed so that Germany and Japan could be enslaved to the New World Order, and Britain eventually forced to turn over most of Palestine to the Jews.
1950-1953: Thank you Globalists for the Korean War in which 36,000 Americans were killed in a rigged no-win war designed to maintain a permanent trip-wire between the two Koreas.
1965-1975: Thank you Globalists for the Vietnam War in which 58,000 Americans were killed in another rigged no-win war designed to drain and destabilize America.
1982-1984: Thank you Globalists and Zionists for the Beirut Deployment in which 266 Americans were killed in a false-flag attack staged by Israel and blamed on “terrorists.”
1990-1991: Thank you Globalists and Zionists for the Gulf War in which 300 Americans were killed so that the rising power of politically independent Iraq could be weakened.
2001-2011: Thank you Globalists and Zionists for the War on Terror in which 7000 Americans were killed in Afghanistan and Iraq as part of a multi-trillion dollar farce kicked-off after the false-flag terror attacks of September 11, 2001.
“They died to keep us free,” really?
Heavily indebted & abusively overtaxed Americans enjoying their mandatory “freedom” (from germs) during the lock-down of the Stupid-19 scamdemic.
NY Times: This Is Democrats’ Doomsday Scenario for Election Night By Trip Gabriel
What if early results in swing states on Nov. 3 show President Trump ahead, and he declares victory before heavily Democratic mail-in votes, which he has falsely linked with fraud, are fully counted?
Washington Post: What’s the Worse that Could Happen? The Election will Likely Spark Violence and a Constitutional Crisis By Rosa Brooks
In every scenario except a Biden landslide, our simulation ended catastrophically
Newsweek: How Trump Could Turn the Most Challenging Election Since the Civil War into an Unprecedented Disaster By David H. Freedman
Early on in the 1972 classic film, The Godfather, there was a scene in which Tom Hagen, the “consigliere” (counselor) of the Corleone Family, demonstrated the art of openly threatening someone without actually saying so directly. Consigliere Hagen (played by Robert Duvall) threatened a movie producer named Woltz in a manner so subtle that even many Godfather aficionados miss it.
From the script:
All right, start talking.
Uh, I was sent by a friend of Johnny Fontane’s — His friend is my client, who’d give his undying friendship to Mr. Woltz, if Mr. Woltz would grant us a small — favor.
Woltz is listening.
Give Johnny the part in that new war film you’re starting next week.
WOLTZ (laughs, then)
And ah, what favor would ah your friend ah grant Mr. Woltz?
You’re gonna have some union problems; my client could make them disappear.
Are you trying to muscle me?
Now listen to me, you smooth-talking son-of-a-bitch! Let me lay it on the line for you and your boss, whoever he is. Johnny Fontane will never get that movie! I don’t care how many – dago guinea WOP greaseball gumbahs come out of the woodwork!
What Hagen actually did in that scene was, under the guise of “looking out for Woltz,” threatened the producer with a labor strike! Woltz was no fool; which explains why he became so angry. He understood that the real message was: “Do what we say or we will go to war with you.” Woltz, at first, refused to comply. A bloody horse’s head placed in his bed soon changed his tune.
“Mr. Woltz — I have not threatened you.”
Now, turning our attention to the Globalist / Jewish Mafia, we can better interpret some of the similarly thuggish threats and “warnings” that have been emanating from prominent Demonrats such as Big Mike Obongo: (here) — Creepy Pedo Joe Biden: (here) — Whore Harris: (here) — and now — as evidenced by the ominously provocative headlines about a “doomsday scenario” & “violence” & “disaster” & “catastrophe” & “a constitutional crisis” referenced above — those notorious flagship vessels of Judea’s Piranha Press — the New York Slimes and Washington Compost, and also Newsweek. The “color revolution” message is clear. Get rid of Donald Trump on November 3rd or there will be hell to pay!
These barely veiled threats, we believe, tie back nicely to several “crumbs” which the Trump / Q Anon team posted between October 31 – November 2 of 2017. The meaning of those Q posts wasn’t exactly clear back then, but as Q has often said since: “Future proves past” — which means that certain early scenes in this “movie” (aka “the plan”) are really part of the middle or ending of the story. Let’s explore some of these mysterious 2017 posts and see how the de-codes make sense today.
1. Big Mike (or an impostor, or a “deep fake” video): “If you think things cannot possibly get worse, trust me, they can; and they will if we don’t make a change in this election. If we have any hope of ending this chaos, we have got to vote for Joe Biden like our lives depend on it.” // 2. Creepy Redo Biden: “Does anyone believe there will be less violence in America if Donald Trump is re-elected?” // 3. Whore Harris (or an impostor, or a “deep fake” video): “But they (the protests) are not gonna stop. They’re not gonna stop. They’re not – this is a movement, I’m telling you. They’re not gonna stop….. and everyone beware, because they’re not gonna stop. They’re not gonna stop before election day in November, and they’re not gonna stop after election day. And that should be – everyone should take note of that.”
Post 22 October 31, 2017: Who controls the NG? Why was the NG recently activated in select cities within the US? Can the NG work in coordination w/ the marines?
Analysis: NG = National Guard – which, when activated during a national emergency, can be controlled by Trump and could indeed coordinate with the marines.
Post 24 November 1, 2017: Any person making statements they will not be seeking re-election was put in submission. For the betterment of the country not all will be prosecuted and all will do as told. You will see more of this occur (not normal yet disregarded) and even on the D side.
Analysis:After this prediction was made, an astonishing number — “record numbers” according to all media accounts — of Republican Congressmen (including House Speaker Paul Ryan) resigned in advance of both the 2018 mid-term elections and the upcoming 2020 elections (2018 here) and (2020 here). Most of them were anti-Trumpers. On the “D side” – similar “submissions” would explain why the Demonrats appear to be comically self-destructing. Is the self-destruction of the D’s a deliberate “plea deal” consequence of this submission to Sheriff Trump? I believe so.
Post 24 (continued): Do conditions need to be satisfied to authorize? (NG) What former President used the military to save the republic and what occurred exactly?
Analysis: A national emergency has to be declared – which is what Trump did in response to Stupid-19.
Post 24 (continued)
The masses tend to panic in such situations. No war. No civil unrest. Clean and swift.
Analysis: When the hammer drops, it will be clean and swift. Many now believe that many Deep Staters have already been arrested.
Post 26 November 1, 2017: Think about it logically. The only way is the military. Fully controlled. Save & spread (once 11.3 verifies as 1st marker).
Analysis: 11.3 is a very important sign. Did it really stand for the letters K.C. – after indicted Deep State lawyer, Kevin Cline Smith? Or does it refer to November 3rd, 2020 – the “marker” to kick-off the military action?
Post 34 November 1, 2017: My fellow Americans, over the course of the next several days you will undoubtedly realize that we are taking back our great country (the land of the free) from the evil tyrants that wish to do us harm and destroy the last remaining refuge of shining light. On POTUS’ order, we have initiated certain fail-safes that shall safeguard the public from the primary fallout which is slated to occur 11.3 upon the arrest announcement of Mr. Podesta (actionable 11.4). Confirmation (to the public) of what is occurring will then be revealed and will not be openly accepted. Public riots are being organized in serious numbers in an effort to prevent the arrest and capture of more senior public officials.
Analysis: There goes that date of 11.3 again – accompanied by a prediction of some unrest related to “fallout.”
Post 34 (continued): On POTUS’ order, a state of temporary military control will be actioned and special ops carried out.
Analysis: This fits in with the Left’s current threats to trigger violence immediately after Election Day (11.3)
1. Paul the Rat Ryan did everything he could to obstruct and undermine Donald Trump. Q Anon & Friends have since forced him to resign. When Trump took office in January 2017, there were 241 Republicans in the House. Since then, 115 of them (48%) have been “whacked” by Trump — having either retired, resigned, been defeated, or are retiring after 2020. // 2. Under cover of Stupid-19 — a Globalist scamdemic which Trump and the Patriots knew was coming in advance — emergency presidential powers over the National Guard and military have already been granted to Trump. Q Anon foresaw the need for this power-grab three years ago.
Post 34 (continued): Rest assured, the safety and well-being of every man, woman, and child of this country is being exhausted in full. However, the atmosphere within the country will unfortunately be divided as so many have fallen for the corrupt and evil narrative that has long been broadcast.
Analysis: It will get ugly, but the patriots are in control.
Post 34 (continued: We will be initiating the Emergency Broadcast System during this time in an effort to provide a direct message (avoiding the fake news) to all citizens.
Analysis: This is the only way to totally bypass Fake News and speak to ALL Americans. The Globalist press has already expressed concern about Trump’s control over the Emergency Broadcast System (here) – which includes TV, radio, and I Phones — and reported that the system was tested on cellphones for the very first time in 2018. (here)
Post 34 (continued): Organizations and/or people that wish to do us harm during this time will be met with swift fury – certain laws have been pre-lifted to provide our great military the necessary authority to handle and conduct these operations (at home and abroad).
Analysis: These laws were not “pre-lifted” in 2017, when this post was issued – but during the fog of Stupid-19 – which the patriots already knew was coming.
Post 36 November 1, 2017: If Trump failed, if we failed, and HRC assumed control, we as Patriots were prepared to do the unthinkable (this was leaked internally and kept the delegate recount scam and BO from declaring fraud). Dig deeper – missing critical points to paint the full picture. There is simply no other way than to use the military. It’s that corrupt and dirty.
Analysis: This leaked threat of direct military intervention –“the unthinkable” –explains why Killary meekly backed-down from demanding a “recount” that some had been urging her to pursue (here) as well as why the post-election delegate tampering effort (here) also fizzled out. Wow! The generals and admirals really do have our backs!
Post 44 November 2, 2017: Before POTUS departs on Friday he will be sending an important message via Twitter.
Analysis: The trigger-tweet from Trump has been mentioned several times over the years, and is an important article-of-faith among A followers
Post 55 November 2, 2017: Look to Twitter: Exactly this: “My fellow Americans, the Storm is upon us…….”
Analysis: The post election code-word from Trump – to be tweeted after the Communists explode in red rage (as the Slimes and Compost now confirm) — as the activated NG and Marines make their “clean and swift” move while Trump activates the Emergency System. Notice how the 2017 dates for these posts — though from three years ago –precisely precede 11.3 — another known Q Anon tactic.
To you weakened Deep State Reds in the suites and in the Military Intelligence-infiltrated streets — Go ahead and follow through on your implied stated threats to stir up mayhem on 11.3 and usher in a violent “constitutional crisis.” Do your worst! Trump’s trap was set for you a long time ago.
1. According to Q Anon posts from 2017, when the time comes, the president will bypass the media with Emergency Alert Systems (which Trump later tested in 2018) // 2. Does 11.3 mean that the “storm” events will kick off on Election Day (November 3)??? // 3. “The calm before THE STORM.”
Q Anon posted an image of Q fans posing in front of the Guantanamo Bay Naval Station — which contains a prison camp that Trump has spent a lot of money building up for some reason (here)
We’ve all heard that sad story about “The Trail of Tears” – the one about how mean old “racist” President Andrew Jackson(terms: 1829-1837) rounded up the Indians of the Southeast (mainly Cherokees from Georgia-Tennessee-Carolinas) and force-marched them off to Oklahoma. The various treks, ranging between 700-1000 miles, are said to have caused the deaths of 4,000 Indians / Native Americans (quietly downgraded to 3,000) who were buried in unmarked graves along “The Trail Where They Cried.”
There is just one little problem with this unchallenged narrative — it is not totally false, but it has been grossly edited and wildly embellished, mainly for the purpose of besmirching the great name of the heroic American figure who paid off the National Debt down to zero and “killed the bank” (America’s Central Bank). Let us examine some of the problems with this attack against “the White Man” in general — and Jackson in particular — and set the record straight about “The Trail of Tears” once and for all.
1. Andrew Jackson slays the multi-headed monster of the 2nd Bank of the United States in 1833. // 2. Jackson survives an assassination attempt. The Rothschild Globalists have always hated Jackson for paying off the National Debt and killing the Central Bank — which was finally reborn as the “The Federal Reserve” in 1913. //
3. The false propaganda tale of “The Trail of Tears” is just another manifestation of that hatred towards Jackson.
10 PROBLEMS WITH THE OFFICIAL STORY
1. Judging historical figures out of the context of their times can be misleading.
We do not believe that right and wrong are “relative” concepts, of course. However, we should tread very carefully when pulling any historical personage out of the context of his day and condemning him according to some of the arguably more enlightened attitudes of contemporary times. After all, back in the day, many good and noble men saw nothing wrong with owning slaves, provided they were well-cared for. Does that mean that George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson himself and even the estimated 3,700 Black slaveholders (here) were all “evil?” We don’t believe so.
Similarly, let’s not childishly tag all men from the past with the stupid term “racist” so easily just because they foresaw potential problems arising from different races living within close proximity of each other — a sad historical reality of human existence which has afflicted mankind ever since the Cro Magnons knocked off the Neanderthals. It was simply the way of the world back then.
2. Not all Indians were exactly angels.
What modern day libtards refer to as “toxic masculinity” ™ is not unique to White males. Many innocent White people as well as some of the more docile Indian tribes were persecuted and slaughtered by some of the more violent Indian elements. So let’s dispense with all this “evil White Man” talk. Over the course of the centuries of interaction in the Americas, atrocities were committed by both sides. Notwithstanding the many cases of Indians and Whites getting along nicely, the proximity to each other was often problematic in some areas, for both races.
3. The Indian Removal Act was approved by Congress and the Senate.
Jackson was not a dictator issuing Executive Orders to relocate the Indians. In 1830, the US Senate passed the Indian Removal Act by a vote of 28 to 19; and the House of Representatives passed it by a vote of 101 to 97. The Act granted the president authority to negotiate treaties that swapped Indian lands east of the Mississippi River for reservations in the West, and said nothing about removal by force.
This policy of using money and land instead of force was later continued by President Martin Van Buren, after Jackson left office in 1837.
1. Black slave-owner Nicolas Augustin Metoyer of Louisiana and his other family members owned 200 slaves. Was he “evil” too? 2. Not all Indians were peaceful. There were many cases of White women and children being slaughtered. 3. Senate and House majorities also supported Indian relocation in exchange for western reservations.
The slaughter of Jane McCrea in 1777. These types of incidents and counter attacks by settlers were still occurring in the 1830’s.
4. Jackson was more of a realist than a “racist.”
Many northerners opposed the plan. Jackson regarded these northern critics as hypocrites because Indian tribes had become nearly extinct / assimilated in the North — where Indian hunting grounds gave way to family farms as state law replaced tribal law. If the Indians of the south and their culture were to survive, it could only be done in separation, not integration. The wise words of America’s greatest President made perfect sense for that time:
“Humanity has often wept over the fate of the aborigines of this country and philanthropy has long been busily employed in devising means to avert it, but its progress has never for a moment been arrested, and one by one have many powerful tribes disappeared from the earth.
But true philanthropy reconciles the mind to these vicissitudes as it does to the extinction of one generation to make room for another.… Philanthropy could not wish to see this continent restored to the condition in which it was found by our forefathers. What good man would prefer a country covered with forests and ranged by a few thousand savages to our extensive Republic, studded with cities, towns, and prosperous farms, embellished with all the improvements which art can devise or industry execute, occupied by more than 12,000,000 happy people, and filled with all the blessings of liberty, civilization, and religion?”
5. Jackson (and later Van Buren) had the best interests of the Indians at heart.
According to historian H. W. Brands, Jackson sincerely believed that his population transfer was a “wise and humane policy” that would save the Indians from “utter annihilation.” Brands writes that, given the “racist realities of the time, Jackson was almost certainly correct in contending that for the Cherokees to remain in Georgia risked their extinction.” Jackson believed that his paternalism and federal support were generous acts of mercy.
In his autobiography, Van Buren praised Jackson’s vision of Indian removal and thus, preservation.
“No man ever entered upon the execution of an official duty with purer motives, firmer purpose or better qualifications for its performance. We were perhaps in the beginning unjustifiable aggressors (toward the Indians) but we have become the guardians and, as we hope, the benefactors.”
1. Jackson (Image 1) and Van Buren’s (Image 2) attitudes towards the Indians were paternalistic and benevolent, not cruel or tyrannical. 3. Cherokee leader John Ross (half White) — negotiated the transfer deal with the US Federal government, and profited from it. He never spoke nor wrote about any mass deaths.
6. The Indians were well-paid to relocate and received lots of new land.
Unlike, say, the dispossessed and terrorized Palestinians of 1948 and beyond, the Cherokees of the 1830’s actually negotiated the terms of their relocation with Washington DC. The Cherokees, though under pressure, were actually well-paid with removal costs running at about $3 million and another $3 million by 1849. In today’s money, $3 million would represent as much as $90-100 million. In essence, the Indian relocation was an eminent domain deal, not unlike the transactions which clear out the residents of city blocks in order to make way for bridges, tunnels, skyscrapers etc.
Jackson outlined his policy in his Second Annual Message to Congress, in which he said nothing about the use of force. Rather, his comments on Indian removal began with the words:
“It gives me pleasure to announce to Congress that the benevolent policy of the Government, steadily pursued for nearly thirty years, in relation to the removal of the Indians beyond the white settlements is approaching to a happy consummation. Two important tribes have accepted the provision made for their removal at the last session of Congress, and it is believed that their example will induce the remaining tribes also to seek the same obvious advantages.”
Further contradicting the misconception of a mass forced roundup at bayonet point is the historical fact that some Cherokees insisted on staying in North Carolina and had a Federal reservation set aside for them there in later years (here).
THIS IS WHAT A REAL “TRAIL OF TEARS” LOOKS LIKE!
1. 1948: 700,000 uncompensated Palestinians flee their homes and farms in terror as Jewish gangs commit massacres. 2. 1967: 300,000 more uncompensated Palestinians are forced out of their lands by the Israeli military. 3. Jewish-run PBS is big on pushing the lie of the Cherokee “Trail of Tears” — but totally silent when it comes to exposing the real, more recent and still ongoing Palestinian Trail of Tears.
7. Only 12,783 Indians were relocated.
Most products of the American “education” system remain under the mistaken impression that mass numbers of Indians from the Southeast United States was herded out to Oklahoma. Texas historian / writer William R. Higginbotham claimed to have spent 20 years researching original archival data from that era. In a 1988 essay published in The Oklahoman newspaper, he informs us:
“In the Cherokee nation’s own files, now on deposit in the Gilcrease Institute in Tulsa, the number of Indians departing the East in 13 main parties is recorded at 12,623, the arrivals West at 12,783. Some stragglers joined on the way. American military counts are almost the same. The Cherokees were being paid per Indian moved.”
Even establishment historians do not dispute the relatively low number of the relocated, though their “official” number is 16,000. (here)
8. The sovereign Cherokee Nation in Oklahoma still exists and is thriving.
“Citizens of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma reside within 14 counties in Northeastern Oklahoma, the tribe composes of descendants of those that were forced removed from lands in Southeastern United States during 1838-1839 time period. In addition to those descendants the tribe also comprises of descendants of ‘Old Settlers’ which were those that had moved from lands in the east prior to 1833 and are subject to the 1828 and 1833 treaties. Over 70,000 Cherokee reside within a 7,000 square mile geographical area, which was never a reservation but rather a federally-recognized, truly sovereign nation covering most of northeast Oklahoma.
Today its jurisdictional service area encompasses eight entire counties along with portions of six others. As one of only three such federally-recognized Cherokee tribes, the Cherokee Nation has both the sovereign right and the responsibility to exercise control and development over tribal assets, including more than 66,000 acres of land and 96 miles of the Arkansas Riverbed. Tribal citizenship is granted if a lineal descendant from the Final Roll of the Dawes Commission 1907 of the applicant can be proven through birth and death records.”(here)
Andrew Jackson: the benefactor of Cherokee culture? Believe it! Whereas northern tribes have long since gone extinct / blended out (as Jackson had said), the racial Cherokees of Oklahoma still exist as a sovereign nation in an area almost as large as the stolen nation of Israel — with a population many times greater than in 1830!
Cherokee Stand Watie moved out west on “The Trail of Tears.” Years later, he became the leader of the Cherokee Nation and attained a general’s rank in the Confederate Army during the U.S. Civil War (1861-1865). Watie commanded the Confederate Indian cavalry of the Army of the Trans-Mississippi — made up of Cherokee, Muskogee and Seminole. He was the last Confederate general in the field to cease fighting at the end of the war. — And oh, by the way, Waite owned at least 800 Black slaves. (here)
9. The “Trail of Tears” term was actually coined decades later.
“The phrase “Trail of Tears” entered the story much later. In 1958, Gaston Litton, former archivist at the University of Oklahoma, attributed it to a remark by a Choctaw Indian to a Baptist preacher about an Indian Territory road. It reached print for the first time in 1908, 70 years after the exodus, when all the participants were dead.
From then on it spread like an advertising slogan, as if it came from the mouths of the 1830-40 Cherokee Indians who had never heard or used it.”
Noted Oklahoma scholar Gaston Litton — author of “Cherokee Cavaliers” — traced the first use of the propaganda term “Trail of Tears” to 1908 — 70 years after the event!
10. The death toll was grossly exaggerated.
The commonly accepted and endlessly repeated figure of “4000 dead” represents a quintessential case of a hearsay bit of data embedding itself in the public mind to such a depth that none dare question it (sort of the like the “6,000,000” dead Jews of Holohoax fame, or the phony “350,000” from the mythical “Rape of Nanking”). Such a death toll would mean that 33% of the trekkers died (Higginbotham’s numbers), or 25% (if you believe official numbers of 16,000 relocated). Either case is impossible! How could that many people have died on treks undertaken on established trails, in the generally warm / mild-weathered south, with horse-drawn wagons packed with provisions, on journeys that should have lasted only 2-3 months? Where are the “4,000” bodies? What documentation is there to support such a high death total?
“The act caused a spate of articles about how the Cherokees lost 4,000 or more dead on a terrible trek, described as a “forced” march, presumably indicating they were prodded by bullet and bayonet as they moved during the hard winter of 1837-38.
Voluminous records, including those of the Cherokee nation itself, show no loss approaching 4,000….
T. Hartley Crawford, head of the Bureau of Indian Affairs, reported on Aug. 6, 1840, in a private communication to the secretary of war that the death toll among the 13 groups was 447
Other deaths, raising the total to more than 800, took place in parties outside the main groups and were carefully reported to the U.S. government.”
Cherokee removal was investigated by Congress to an extent that can be believed only by reading the Congressional Record. Some reports run to hundreds of pages. The written military record exists in detail in U.S. archives. Nothing like an extravagant death toll among the Cherokees exists. Butler’s (hearsay) is the sole source for such a conclusion. No historian mentions that.
(Cherokee leader) John Ross never made unusual claims for deaths, although he returned to Washington repeatedly after 1838 seeking more money. Not only do the lower aforementioned death totals (447, or 800 if other groups and separate events are counted) seem much more realistic, but when you consider the fact that during those times, about 25 people out of 1,000 would die naturally each year anyway, (here) the “Trail of Tears” doesn’t seem to have been so treacherous after all!
The piece which William Higginbotham (no image available) wrote for the Oklahoman (here) sums up most of the scam, but fails to identify the main motive. He wrote: “It (The Trail of Tears) is too good a story as it stands and too well-fixed to disturb. That makes it all the more dishonest.”
*** CONCLUSION ***
So you see, dear reader, this bullshit about “The Trail of Tears” is nothing more than a romanticized lie, concocted by “the usual suspects” for the devious purpose of attacking the “evil” White Man and tearing down the reputation of Andrew the Great at the same time. For Jackson, like Hitler, shut down the operations of the International Jewish-Marxist banking Mafia which controls our money and our minds to this very day. That’s the truth, and no amount of Fake History can alter it.
Trail of Tears? Ha! Trail of Smears is more like it.
1. The “critically acclaimed” ™ Broadway Show “Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson” was a historical musical that went out of its way to slander Andrew Jackson over the “Trail of Tears.” ™ 2. In 2016, the Obama administration decreed that Jackson would be removed from the $20 bill in the Year 2020, and replaced with an image of the negro Union spy Harriet Tubman. President Trump later rescinded that order. Jackson’s place is safe, for now.
A little-known alliance between the US and Tsarist Russia led to the Russian fleet showing up in force in New York and San Francisco. It arrived at a crucial time in 1863 when Britain and France were on the verge of intervening in the Civil War on the side of the Confederacy. An actual world war was on the horizon that would “wrap the world in flames” as Secretary of State William Seward put it. The mighty Russian presence deterred the Anglo-French from invading, and the Union was saved.
In 1863, New Yorkers flocked to the waterfront to see a startling sight — Russian war ships in New York Harbor.
In the summer of 1863, the year of the battles at Gettysburg and Vicksburg, came the latest crisis to plague the relationship between the US and Britain during the American Civil War. Two powerful ironclads called the Laird rams, intended for the Confederacy and capable of breaking the Union blockade of the Southern ports, were under construction in Britain. US ambassador Charles Francis Adams warned British Foreign Secretary Lord Russell that if the warships were ever delivered to the rebels, “It would be superfluous in me to point out to your Lordship that this is war.”
The tangled diplomacy between the US and Britain had one major war scare before. In late 1861–62, two Confederate envoys, Mason and Slidell, were taken off the British ship Trent by the US Navy as they were on their way to London and Paris to seek European intervention. War hysteria gripped Britain, and Prime Minister Lord Palmerston ordered troop deployment to Canada in anticipation of conflict. In any case, the British strategy hinged on their overwhelming naval force. Provoking the secession of Maine was also discussed, as well as plans to bombard and burn Boston and New York. The latter was considered by the Admiralty “the true heart of US commerce . . . to strike her would be to paralyze all the limbs.” Tensions were eased, but not eliminated, when Mason and Slidell were released.
The private secretary to Ambassador Adams, his son Henry, had the impression that Lord Russell was determined to break up the Union. The British ruling class actually sympathized with the North’s intention of freeing the slaves. But President Abraham Lincoln initially shelved that idea to keep the border states in the Union. He thus lost support of the aristocracy. All the while, Britain felt that a divided US was in the British interest, making her North American possessions more secure. She was officially neutral, but it was a neutrality that masked an unmistakable hostility.

In October 1862, an ultimatum was issued to North and South to end the war or face “more resolute action” from the British. Whether that meant military action is unclear, but the implication was the ultimate survival of the Confederacy as a sovereign nation. France, meanwhile, was mirroring Britain’s hostile neutrality. Napoleon III had designs on Mexico, and a weak US would give her a free hand in America.
Union morale was therefore at its lowest ebb in 1863, despite the victories at Gettysburg and Vicksburg. In the midst of the Laird rams crisis, rescue came from an unlikely source—Tsarist Russia.
At this time, Russia was also facing its own insurrection from her subject Poles, who were supported by Britain and France. Facing the same hostile coalition brought the governments of Lincoln and Tsar Alexander II together. Alexander had also freed the Russian serfs and thus sympathized with the Union cause. On September 1863, the Russian Baltic Fleet arrived in New York and the Far East Fleet in San Francisco.
The real reason Russia sent her fleet to the US might be self-serving: She didn’t want it bottled up in case the threatened war with Britain over Poland erupted. But its presence was nonetheless salvation for the Union in its hour of desperation. “God bless the Russians!” exulted Secretary of the Navy Gideon Welles. After the war, Oliver Wendell Holmes hailed Alexander “who was our friend when the world was our foe.” The Russians showed themselves willing to fight for the US. When the Confederate cruiser Shenandoah prepared to attack San Francisco, the Russian admiral gave orders to defend the city in the absence of Union warships.
The British realized that with Russia on the US side, the cost of military intervention would be too high. Besides, the Union victories of 1863 signaled that the Confederacy was a losing cause. Had the British attacked, it might have meant a world war in which the US and Russia, allied perhaps with Prussia and Italy, would face Britain and France supported by Spain or Austria. The First World War exploding in the 1860s was a distinct possibility.
Fortunately, Britain and France backed down before the Russian presence. The Laird rams never made it into Confederate hands, and the Union was saved.
