As we approach the Centenary of the outbreak of ‘the war to end all wars,’ the following series of events are unlikely to be included among the official narrative.
After all, what country wants to be reminded that the loss of more than 200,000 of it’s own people, could have been avoided?
Similarily, what country wants to celebrate the life of a man, who took his country to war in order to prevent details of an illicit affair coming to light?
The first World War broke out in the summer of 1914, the 28th of July to be exact.
Within two years, Germany had won.
The German submarines, which were a surprise to the world, had driven every British Convoy from the Atlantic Ocean, effectively leaving Britain without ammunition and food for her troops.
The French had mutinied by that point, they had already lost 600,000 of the flower of French youth in the defence of Verdun on the Somme.
The Russian army was defecting in droves, and the Italian forces had collapsed.
Not a single shot had been fired on German soil, yet Germany was offering England peace terms.
The offered England a negotiated peace on what lawyers call a ‘status quo ante’ basis.
Basically, it was suggested that Germany wanted to, ‘call the whole thing off and return to the way things were before the war started.’
England, in the summer of 1916, was considering Germany’s offer.
They had no choice. It was either accepting this negotiated peace, or continuing and being utterly defeated.
Meanwhile, the Zionists inside Germany, led by Chaim Weitzman, who later became the first President of Israel, met with the British War Cabinet and said; “Do not capitulate. You can win this war if the United States enters the war as your ally. We can arrange this, but in return, you must promise us Palestine once the tide turns in your favour.”
Chaim Weitzman was a Russian born Chemist who settled in England in 1904.
By 1915, he had developed a chemical process of producing acetone from maize. Acetone was a vital ingredient in the production of artillery shells, which Britain and her allies had in short supply at the beginning of the war.
During this period, Weitzman, through the mediation of Walter Rothschild, met Sir Arthur James Balfour, the First Lord of the Admiralty, and David Lloyd George, Britain’s Minister of Munitions.
Both of these political figures were under the influence of the Rothschilds, of which Walter was the head.
It did not hurt Weitzman’s ambitions in any way, when in 1916, Lloyd George became Prime Minister, and Balfour the Foreign Secretary either.
Was it through this connection that the ‘Balfour Declaration’ granted a “Jewish homeland within Palestine.”?
The Declaration was officially written in 1919, and was merely Great Britain’s promise to pay the Zionists what they had agreed upon for bringing the United States into the war.
Meanwhile, in America, President Woodrow Wilson was campaigning for his re-election in 1916 on his popular slogan, “He kept us out of war.”
But, on April 2nd, 1917, Wilson addressed both houses of Congress and pleaded with them to declare war on Germany.
What had made Woodrow Wilson change his mind?
Was it because shortly before his re-election, Wilson had received a visitor at the White House by the name of Samuel Untermeyer?
Untermeyer was a prominent New York City attorney of the law firm, Guggenheim, Untermeyer and Marshall.
This particular firm had as one if it’s more prestigious clients, the Kuhn Loeb Bank, of which, Jacob Schiff, an agent of Walter Rothschild, was the head.
Both Untermeyer and Schiff had also contributed generously to the National Democratic Committee, the same body that installed President Wilson into the White House in both of his elections.
During his visit, Untermeyer informed Wilson that he had been retained to bring a ‘Breach of Promise’ action against him.
The firm’s client was a former wife of a professor at Princetown University at the same time that Wilson was also a professor at the same University.
Untermeyer explained to Wilson that his client was willing to accept $40,000 in lieu of commencing the Breach of Promise action against him.
Untermeyer then produced a packet of letters from his pocket, allegedly written by President Wilson to his colleagues wife while they were neighbours at Princetown.
These letters established the fact that an illicit sexual relationship had existed between Wilson and the wife of his Princetown colleague.
Putting all doubt aside, Wilson immediately acknowledged his authorship of the letters.
President Wilson informed Untermeyer that he did not have sufficient funds available to pay his client.
Untermeyer, strangely volunteered to give Wilson’s former lover the $40,000 out of his own pocket – on one condition: that President Wilson swear to appoint to the first vacancy on the United States Supreme Court, the Zionist, Louis Dembitz Brandeis.
Not that strange an occurrence, all things considered, but what was strange however, was that President Wilson accepted the offer without a moments hesitation.
As earlier agreed, on June 5th, 1916, almost one year before Wilson begged Congress to declare war on Germany, Wilson duly appointed Brandeis to the Supreme Court.
Many were surprised that Wilson, the son of a Christian Minister, had appointed the first Jewish Supreme Court Justice to the highest court in the land.
The first Jewish Supreme Court Justice in US history in fact.
Following the appointment, eyebrows were further raised, when President Woodrow Wilson and Justice Louis Brandeis became unusually intimate friends.
Brandeis of course knew the circumstances behind his appointment, so was this knowledge used as a lever to cement his position in the Supreme Court?
Was he effectively a captive of the people who were aware of his affair, and who were now using it to their advantage?
It does seem that way, when you also take into account that Wilson also accepted Brandeis’ ‘suggestion’ that the sinking of the SS Sussex by a German Submarine in the English Channel, complete with the loss of a number of American citizens, could easily justify the United States entering the war.
Relying almost exclusively on the legal expertise of Justice Brandeis, Wilson duly appealed to Congress to declare war on Germany.
Congress agreed on April 6th, 1917.
The Declaration of War against Germany by the United States, guaranteed that Palestine would be turned over to the Jews upon the defeat of Germany, even though Britain had already promised it to Trans-Jordan upon the defeat of the Ottoman Empire.
So, Congress went ahead and declared war on Germany based on the assertion by Woodrow Wilson that Germany had sunk the SS Sussex and that American citizens had perished.
As General Pershings troops began fighting their way through Europe, news coming through that the SS Sussex had not in fact been sunk and no US citizens had lost their lives, would not have been well recieved.
Maybe that is why it was never reported at the time.
It would have been too late anyway, as by the time the hoax was revealed, the United States was officially at war with Germany.
A brutal and exceptionally bloody war, which dragged on for a further two years, and one in which 115, 516 American Soldiers were killed and a further 202,002 were maimed for life.
