Ex-NASA astronaut, Neil Armstrong, gave a remarkable insight into the workings of this world when he nervously made reference to “one of Truth’s protective layers,” during a short speech given on 20th July, 1994.
The real answer may never come…and has never been satisfactorily theorized in more than four decades.
Subjective answers have been many – some seem plausible, others, not as much. Theories have blamed the Mafia, Aliens, Lyndon B. Johnson, Israel, Russia, George Bush Senior and the CIA, among many others.
What I find the most compelling, is the Federal Reserve and Illuminati theories. These two stories catch my attention the most because they leave too many unanswered questions, too many holes. Too many oddities attached to be purely shrugged off as happenstance.
Shrouded in the clouds of this mystery is the Titanic.
I will touch on the issues that, no matter how you examine the bullet points, they logically make no sense. Without further ado…
I’m certain many remember the hugely successful Hollywood movie, Titanic. James Cameron had arguably made this his masterpiece. He did a masterful job on using real research and documented literature to create his block-buster. Missing, however, are the questionable events leading up to, during, and after this great ship sunk to its watery grave.
The sinking of the Titanic has been second only to the mystery surrounding the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Elements that led up to the eventual demise of the ‘unsinkable’ vessel have been questioned and analyzed for nearly 100 years.
What does the Titanic mean to this story? A Catholic order known as the Jesuits compelled to carry out Jesus’ work. In this instance, theorists believe that the establishment of the U.S. Federal Reserve was ushered into being. Those in belief of the theory speak of a group of Illuminati, enlightened individuals with a plan for a New World Order, in which it will be necessary to establish the Federal Reserve.
Many believe that this Jesuit establishment was created so that the order could loan money, shape the world landscape, and become one of the most powerful organizations in the world. Here’s how the Federal Reserve and the Titanic are connected. In 1910, seven men met on Jekyll island just off the coast of Georgia to plan the Federal Reserve Bank. Nelson Aldrich and Frank Vanderclip represented the Rockefeller (Illuminati) financial empire. Henry Davidson, Charles Norton and Benjamin Strong represented J.P. Morgan (Illuminati). Paul Warburg (Illuminati) represented the Rothschilds (Illuminati) Banking dynasty of Europe. The Rothschilds were the banking agents for the Jesuits and hold `the key to the wealth of the Roman Catholic Church.
Necessary to their plans, the Federal Reserve did have some opposition; those who saw what the future would become if banking was outside of the government’s hands, the rates set by a private company such as the Fed. All the wealthy and powerful men the Jesuits wanted to get rid of were invited to take the cruise. Three of the richest and most important of these were Benjamin Guggenheim, Isador Strauss, the head of Macy’s Department Stores, and John Jacob Astor, probably the wealthiest man in the world. Their total wealth, at that time, using dollar values of their day was more than 500 million dollars. Today that amount of money would be worth nearly eleven billion dollars. These three men were coaxed and encouraged to board the floating palace. They had to be destroyed because the Jesuits knew they would use their wealth and influence to oppose a Federal Reserve Bank as well as the various wars that were being planned.
Aboard the Titanic now were some of the richest and most famous individuals in the world. Besides Guggenheim and the Strauses, there was Major Archibald Willingham de Graffenreid Butt and the artist Francis Davis Millet. Major Butt was the military aide to Presidents Theodore Roosevelt and William Taft, and a good friend to both. The recent political friction between Roosevelt and Taft had caused Butt a good deal of grief, and so he sought relief by taking a trip to Europe with his friend, famed artist Francis Millet, most famous for such paintings as Between Two Fires. Millet was president of an art academy in Rome (despite his American birth), and so this was where the two friends headed. While in Rome, Butt also had an audience with the Pope, as President Taft had wished. Now that the holiday was over and Butt was feeling much better, the two were headed back to the United States on Titanic.
Colonel John Jacob Astor and his new bride Madeleine. John Astor was from a long line of millionaires, and he was one of the richest men in the world, if not the richest. He was not only a millionaire, but had been, in his time, a Colonel in the Spanish-American War, an inventor, and a novelist. Now he had created a scandal, however, divorcing his wife for the much younger (and beautiful) Madeleine. Astor was nearing the age of fifty, while Madeleine was a mere eighteen.
Then there was William Thomas Stead, the famed editor and political activist. He was undoubtedly the most famous man on Titanic, due to his political activism and his papers The Pall Mall Gazette and The Review of Reviews. He was also famous by this time for his exposing of London prostitution, and for being the man who called for General Gordon’s transfer to Khartoum to fight the Mahdi. He was making “one last crusade” now by taking the ship to Washington, on the request of President Taft, for an international conference on peace. Also boarding in Southampton would be many more familiar faces, including Theodore Roosevelt’s cousin, the historian Archibald Gracie, the son of General Archibald Gracie of the Confederacy States of America, who was killed at Petersburg in late 1864. There was Jacques Furtrelle, the mystery writer, and his wife May. The two had been up all night, holding a farewell party until 3 o’clock a.m., after which they packed their bags and headed for Southampton. He was photographed that afternoon up on the Boat Deck by the ship’s gymnasium. There was also the famous president of the Grand Trunk Railway aboard, Charles Melville Hays of Illinois (travelling with his family), who was travelling under the personal invitation from Bruce Ismay himself.
It can also be mentioned that J.P. Morgan, the individual contracted to build the Titanic was scheduled to be on the maiden voyage, but canceled.
Supporters of the idea that the Titanic shipwreck was orchestrated carefully, a Jesuit tempore co-adjutor was picked to captain the ship, a man that would do anything for the order and God’s will; Captain Edward Smith. Quite possibly the most experienced captain of the time, Smith had navigated the waters of the Atlantic for 26 years, a master of the icy waters that the Titanic would be sailing. He was a Jesuit and worked for J.P. Morgan. As National Geographic stated in their 1986 documentary entitilted ‘The Secrets of the Titanic,’ “Anyone could be a Jesuit and their identity not be known.
When the ship departed southern England, on board was Father Francis Browne. He was the most powerful Jesuit in all of Ireland and the Jesuit Master of Edward Smith. Here is Jesuit treachery at its finest. The provincial Father Francis Browne boards the Titanic, photographs the victims, most assuredly briefs the Captain concerning his oath as a Jesuit, and the following morning bids him farewell. (Eric J. Phelps, Vatican Assassins Halcon Unified Services).
Later, from the Titanic, Fr. Browne sent a telegram to his provincial in Dublin requesting permission to stay onboard. However, a frosty telegram awaited him in Queenstown: “Get off that ship.”
When news of the Titanic’s disastrous fate reached Fr. Browne, he folded the telegram, put it into his wallet and kept it there for the rest of his life.
Smith, being a master navigator of the Atlantic, allegedly sailed directly into iceberg territory, failing to heed the numerous warnings given by other ships to decrease speed, and tread carefully. The glancing blow to the side of the Titanic is also said to violate basic safety measurements associated with sailing. Danger is meant to be met head on to avoid exactly what happened to the Titanic.
Adding to the questions are, why the Titanic’s flare guns fired white flares. Red was (and is) the emergency standard. Other colors were used for identification (white = White Star Line). When the Titanic was sinking, her crew fired her flare guns. The Californian and other ships saw the white flares, but didn’t consider them a distress call. At one point, the Californian, commanded by Captain Lord, may have been as close as six miles to the stricken vessel.
Quartermaster George Rowe and 4th Officer Boxhall began to launch several white signal rockets from the ship’s bridge, after Captain Smith had suggested it.
According to several Marine websites, white flares mean: The final type of flare that is used in marine situations is the white flare. White flares are used to warn other ships of your presence and avoid the chances of collision.
All three men, Benjamin Guggenheim, Isador Strauss, and John Jacob Astor – whom were opposed to the Federal Reserve, died during the sinking of the Titanic. The Federal Reserve is installed as part of the Federal Reserve act in December of 1913, roughly a year and eight months after the Titanic tragedy, and World War I less than a year later. Theorists believe that the Federal Reserve and the Jesuits were responsible for funding the United States, Germany, and Russia in the war.
7:30am, Wednesday, April 10, 1912 – Captain Edward J. Smith boards the Titanic for its
maiden voyage. He also announces his retirement and that this would be his final voyage.
April 10, 6:30 pm – Titanic arrives in Cherbourg, France and anchors 2 miles offshore. Small tenders bring aboard more mail and passengers. Some of the wealthiest and best known passengers boarded in Cherbourg.
Friday, April 12 – The Titanic is well out in the Atlantic running at 21 knots. By noon Saturday, April 13, Titanic covered approximately 805 miles. The first ice warning was received on April 12. By the 14th, Titanic would receive eight ice warnings.
Titanic’s wireless room had been packed with incoming and outgoing messages, several incoming messages were from ships with greetings and warnings of ice (among them were messages from the Avala, California, President Lincoln, La Tourine, Montrose, Manitou, St. Laurent, Corsican, East Point, Empress of Britain, and Lackawanna).
April 14, 9:00pm – Captain Smith joins 2nd officer Charles Lightoller on the bridge. After a conversation, both agree that they will see anything large enough to damage the ship in time to take action. Smith leaves the bridge with the words “If in the least bit doubtful let me know.”
Things were busy for the operators of the ship’s wireless today, as now that the wireless was repaired the operators were hopelessly backlogged with messages, many warning of ice in Titanic’s path. At 9 o’clock a.m., a message from the Caronia was received, reading:
“Captain, Titanic- West bound steamers
report bergs, growlers, and field ice in
42 N. from 49 to 50 W.”
Other ships that reported ice that day were Canada, Lindenfels, Trautenfels, Montcalm, Corinthian, Memphian, and Campanello. At 11:40 a.m., a message was received from the Noordam:
“Congratulations on new command Captain.
Had moderate westerly winds, fine weather,
no fog, much ice reported in 42 24′ to 50 2′”.
And at 1:40, a message from the Baltic was received:
“Captain Smith, Titanic. Have had moderate
variable winds and clear fine weather since
leaving. Greek Steamer Athinai reports passing
icebergs and large quantity of ice today in
latitude 41.51 N., longitude 49.52.W. Wish you
and Titanic all success”.
At 1 o’clock p.m., 2nd Officer C.H. Lightoller posted Caronia’s message, after showing it to his senior officer, 1st Officer W.M. Murdoch, who simply replied, “All right”. Captain Smith took Baltic’s message and gave it to Bruce Ismay of the White Star Line. At the time, Ismay was speaking with the George Dunton Wideners (Mr. Widener’s father was P.A.B. Widener of the I.M.M.). The Chairman of the White Star Line simply stuffed the message into his pocket, only reading it later that afternoon, and taking it lightly. In fact, Mrs. Arthur Ryerson remembers that he personally flashed it at her, saying that he was confident in his vessel.
10:21pm – The nearby ship Californian comes upon the ice field, Captain Lord decides to stop and wait out the night. With 24 of 29 boilers fired, the Titanic is running at 22 knots, the highest speed it had ever achieved. [Why would the World’s Greatest Sea Captain rev up to 22 knots, knowing such impending dangers?]
Along with the great Captain Smith, there were seven lesser officers aboard. These men were: the superb Scottish seaman, Chief Officer William McMasters Murdoch, RNR, then the famed First Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller, RNR, Second Officer David Blair, Third Officer Herbert John Pitman, Fourth Officer Joseph Groves Boxhall, Fifth Officer Harold Godfrey Lowe (a Welshman), RNR, and Sixth Officer James Paul Moody, Henry Tingle Wilde, the Olympic’s chief officer.
During this time, there was a coal strike, in which it was already pre-determined the Titanic would never exceed 20 knots, to conserve coal on board.
In addition, another incident took place, which had been brought to Captain Smith’s attention, to which he ignored…a fire in Boiler Room 6 had been recently discovered, caused by coal left to dry, which, rubbing together, had flicked a spark which had spontaneously combusted. Apparently, the smoldering had started during the trials almost two weeks before.
How could this smoldering hazard have been over-looked, or deemed irrelevant by such experienced and respected men? The Titanic had been inspected daily prior to its maiden voyage , by Titanic’s designer Thomas Andrews and Captain Maurice Harvey Clarke, along with 5th Officer Harold G. Lowe and 6th Officer James P. Moody.
- Why would the greatest sea Captain of his time ignore the fire in Boiler 6?
- Why would the greatest sea Captain of his time disregard the icebergs and run the Titanic at 22 knots, knowing the impending dangers and the short coal supply?
- Why would Captain Smith and his hand-picked expert officers ignore repeated iceberg warnings from many nearby ships?
- Why did JP Morgan suddenly cancel his voyage aboard the Titanic? The real answer is still unknown.
- Why did Captain Smith give the command to send out white flares?
- Why did the Titanic have only 20 lifeboats when it was supposed to have 64?
- Why did President John F. Kennedy feel the need to speak of the Jesuits as highly secretive, subversive and dangerous group in his New York City speech of 27th April 1961?
- Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte: “The Jesuits are a MILITARY organization, not a religious order. Their chief is a general of an army, not the mere father abbot of a monastery. And the aim of this organization is power, power in its most despotic exercise absolute power, universal power, power to control the world by the volition of a single man. Jesuitism is the most absolute of despotisms and at the same time the greatest and most enormous of abuses.”
- Why is the name, Joseph Bruce Ismay, so important?
