Banksters Prolonged WWI For Three Years

On Oct 12, 1915, a British nurse, Edith Cavell, 50, the head of a teaching hospital in Belgium, was shot by a German firing squad.

She was guilty of helping British POW's escape. Her death inflamed anti-German feeling in America and caused enlistment in the British army to double. 

Normally, her crime was punished by three months imprisonment. Why was she shot?

According to Eustace Mullins, Edith Cavell had stumbled upon some embarrassing information. On April 15, 1915, Nursing Mirror in London published her letter complaining that the Allied "Belgian Relief Commission" (charged with feeding Belgium) was actually channeling thousands of tons of food and supplies to Germany!

A measure of German-English cooperation, even in wartime, is that Sir William Wiseman, head of British Intelligence and a partner in the bankers Kuhn Loeb, demanded the Germans arrest and execute Edith Cavell as a spy. Wiseman feared that "the continuance of the war was a stake." The Germans reluctantly agreed, thus creating "one of the principal martyrs of the First World War." (The Secrets of the Federal Reserve, pp. 72-72)

This cooperation was accomplished because Wiseman worked closely with the "father" of the US Federal Reserve, Paul Warburg . Warburg's brother Max was head of German Intelligence and a close friend of Kaiser Wilhelm.

Pretty cynical you say? No more cynical than demolishing the World Trade Center, murdering over 3000 Americans and using it as an excuse to start a "War on Terror."

The central bankers use wars to advance their plan for New World Order dictatorship. The problem executing WWI was that European nations had bankrupted themselves arming for war, and couldn't afford to actually fight it. (The bankers owned the armament conglomerates of course.)

The introduction of the US Federal Reserve and the Income Tax Act in 1913 solved the problem. The American people now were on the hook for both sides of the conflict. The banksters created money (costing them paper and ink) based on the credit of the US government. Every dollar they "loaned" the US government was a new dollar in their pocket. (No people  is free that cannot create its currency at will. These people are controlled by the threat of its withdrawal.)

Germany Needs Propping Up

Another obstacle to war was that Germany and her allies did not have sufficient resources to fight for more than a year.

As Edith Cavell's discovery suggests, the banksters solved this problem by trading with "neutral" states: Switzerland, Belgium, Holland, Denmark, Norway and Sweden. The Allies made the war possible by allowing resources from England, the US and the British Empire to reach Germany indirectly.

The whole thing is documented in a book entitled "The Triumph of Unarmed Forces 1914-1918" (1923) by Rear Admiral M.W.W.P. Consett, who was the British Naval Attache in Scandinavia. His job was to keep track of the movement of supplies ("unarmed forces") necessary for the continuation of the conflict.

For example, Scandinavia was completely dependent on British coal. So the Swedish iron ore that became German submarines that sank Allied shipping reached Germany on vessels powered by British coal.

Germany needed glycerin (animal fat) for the manufacture of explosives. England had no trouble securing this substance because it controlled the seas. After the war began, the demand for these products from neutral countries "exploded." The British continued to fill these orders.

The same applies to copper, zinc, nickel, tin, and many other essential products. Consett believes that if they had been embargoed, the war would have been over by 1915.

The trade of tea, coffee and cocoa to neutral countries also increased dramatically but these products often weren't available there. They all went to Germany at huge profit to the intermediaries.

Consett's protests fell on deaf ears. The Minister of Blockade was Robert Cecil, a member of the Round Table (i.e. central banker) cabal.

Similarly, the central bankers financed the German side through their Scandinavian banks to the tune of 45 million pounds. (p. 146.)

 The Allied nations also became the banksters' debt slaves: "Despite the huge revenues raised from taxation, the British national debt rose tenfold. The government failed to use its bargaining power, as the only really massive borrower in wartime, to get money at low rates of interest. The French national debt rose from 28 billion to 151 billion francs and the note issue increased over 6-fold." (Davies, The History of Money )

According to "The Merchants of Death" World War I was waged by 27 nations; it mobilized 66,103,164 men of whom 37,494,186 became casualties (about 7 million dead.) Its direct costs are estimated at $208,000,000,000, its indirect costs at $151,000,000,000. And these figures do not include the additional billions in interest payments, veterans' care and pensions, and similar expenses..."

Mission Accomplished

And then, as mysteriously as it began, the war ended. In Dec. 1918, the German Empire suddenly "collapsed." You can guess what happened. The banksters had achieved their aims and shut off the spigot. (Hence, the natural sense of betrayal felt in Germany, exacerbated by the onerous reparations.)

 What were the banksters' aims? The Old Order was destroyed. Four empires (Russia, Germany, Austrian-Hungarian and Ottoman) lay in ruins.

The banksters had set up their Bolshevik go-fers in Russia and ensured that Palestine would become a "Jewish" state under their control. But more important, thanks to bloodbaths such as Verdun (800,000 dead), the optimistic spirit of Christian Western Civilization, the Faith in Man and God,  were dealt a mortal blow in  The new generation of  loyal male leadership was massacred.  (See "The Testament of Youth" by Vera Brittain for a moving first-hand account.)

After a grueling economic deflation and another World War, mankind was sufficiently demoralized to accept the banker-run "world government" dictatorship. Can anyone question that the banksters' philosophy is satanic?

You must look at the broad sweep of history to recognize the pattern. Think of the murder of Austrian Arch Duke Ferdinand by the masonic "Black Hand" group (which began WWI) as a staged event, an "excuse" i.e. the equivalent of Sept. 11, 2001.

The same thing happened in World War Two as Charles Higham documents in his remarkable book, "Trading with the Enemy" (1983). For example, Rockefeller's Standard Oil supplied petroleum to the Nazis. 


Modern history is the story of how the banking cartel converted its monopoly of credit into a monopoly of power. This entails destroying our connection with nation, religion, race and family. It means substituting objective truth with their Dictat (political correctness, diversity, globalization feminism, cultural studies etc.)

It takes imagination and courage to see ourselves as dupes  of a vicious long-term  Lucieferian conspiracy to enslave  humanity. We have been dumbed down and spoiled. We are so deceived  and distracted, we can't recognize what's happening,  let alone act. 

They have us where they want us. We have material prosperity... for now.  As Aldous Huxley said, "we love our slavery." 

But in an odd way, we can partly escape if we understand our true situation. "The truth will make us free!"
