The Treaty Of Versailles

June 30, 2010 by  

On June 28, 1919, the First World War officially came to an end when France and Germany signed the Treaty of Versailles with the Allies. The German delegation, which had been forced to sign the punitive agreement, signaled their attitude by breaking the ceremonial pen.

The treaty required Germany to pay such onerous reparations to the victors that the country was impoverished for the next two decades. The terms were regarded with such bitterness in Germany that many historians believe they were directly responsible for the rise of Nazism and World War II.

One little footnote that has been almost forgotten: President Woodrow Wilson, the most powerful person at that conference, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1920 for his efforts there. As Henry Kissinger could testify, it would not be the last time the “peace” prize had very little to do with achieving a just and lasting peace.

    Apparently, most people prefer to take the ‘hot button’ approach to topics. That’s OK, up to a point, but I believe it says much about our willingnes to get involved in daily topics in America that saddle us with generational incompetence.
    Washington gets away with daily corruption because it’s ‘back there.’ Too many of us think we can get involved when it’s convenient. After all, it’s what our grandparents and parents did.
    This topic shows how a useless war can lead to another, no matter how many layers of false patriotism got us there. The twisted mentality that gave us WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam is still with us, and America’s wealth is still being plundered in the name of a false, self-destroying patriotism.
    We’re not supposed to be the world’s ‘cop.’ Where is it written in the Constitution that we’re obligated to fight foreign wars so someone else can be happy?
    The Washington crowd obviously doesn’t work for America, and the current administration is under the thumb of those who ‘gave’ us Korea, Vietnam and other ‘patriotic’ wars. Thanks for nothing, weasels.
    America can’t afford to be patriotic when someone else dictates the terms. And now that we can’t tell our leaders from those who want to see us in chains, we can’t afford to be silent or complacent.
    Freedom and life have much in common. Freedom is lost but once. Life is lost but once.
    Both are at stake, and our leaders (yet again) have abandoned us, and they did it to make someone else happy. Either we outsource that non-leadership or control it, or America’s fate will be like that of the Titanic. That is, it can be prevented if enough people care to look to the past so we can have a future. Choosing between slavery and freedom shouldn’t be that difficult, as long as people know what the words mean.

    s.c. -

    It isn’t written anywhere in the Constitution, as the Fuonders who approved of the version we have today, knew that what you speak of – is Imperialism. Thomas Jefferson spoke out quite loudly on the issue. And, when France soon came calling for help against England, as payback for how they helped us corner Cornwallis, the Congress voted against it… as they damn well should have.

    The fight between England and France was their own, and no one anywhere else should have ever wanted to stick their noses into someone else’s battles.

    Here’s a clip cut from a website discussing the historical events surrounding the Rothschilds. Yes, yes, I know, it’s going off the plantation, as it were. Just the same, it speaks directly to your comment about WWI, WWII, and so on. The kicker here, is, recently they used this General’s name in the 2nd installment of the Nicolas Cage ‘National Treasure’ sequel. You tell me if it’s possible to disprove what it states —-

    1871: An American General named, Albert Pike, who had been enticed into the Illuminati by Guissepe Mazzini, completes his military blueprint for three world wars and various revolutions throughout the world, culminating into moving this great conspiracy into its final stage.

    The first world war is to be fought for the purpose of destroying the Tsar in Russia, as promised by Nathan Mayer Rothschild in 1815. The Tsar is to be replaced with “communism” which is to be used to attack religions, predominantly Christianity. The differences between the British and German empires are to be used to forment this war.

    The second world war is to be used to forment the controversy between facism and political zionism with the slaughter of Jews in Germany, a lynchpin in bringing hatred against the German people.

    This is designed to destroy fascism (which the Rothschilds created) and increase the power of political zionism. This war is also designed to increase the power of communism to the level that it “equalled” to that of united Christendom.

    The third world war is to be played out by stirring up hatred of the Muslim world for the purposes of playing the Islamic world and the political zionists off against one another.

    Whilst this is going on, the remaining nations would be forced to fight themselves into a state of mental, physical, spiritual and economic exhaustion.

    On August 15th of this year [1871], Albert Pike writes a letter (now catalogued in the British Museum) to Guiseppe Mazzini in which he states the following:

    “We shall unleash the nihilists and the atheists and we shall provoke a great social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to all nations the effect of absolute atheism; the origins of savagery and of most bloody turmoil.

    Then everywhere, the people will be forced to defend themselves against the world minority of the world revolutionaries and will exterminate those destroyers of civilization and the multitudes disillusioned with Christianity whose spirits will be from that moment without direction and leadership and anxious for an ideal, but without knowledge where to send its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer brought finally out into public view.

    A manifestation which will result from a general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and Atheism; both conquered and exterminated at the same time.”

    Pike, who having been elected as Sovereign Grand Commander of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry’s Southern Jurisdiction in 1859, was the most powerful Freemason in America. He would retain that post for 32 years until his death in 1891. He also published a book on the subject in 1872 entitled, “Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry,” in which he candidly states the following,

    “LUCIFER, the Light-bearer! Strange and mysterious name to give to the Spirit of Darknesss! Lucifer, the Son of the Morning! Is it he who bears the Light, and with its splendors intolerable blinds feeble, sensual or selfish Souls? Doubt it not!”


    I have been trying to find other sources which can sufficiently prove this is heresy. But, the evidence of the Letter being stored in England, at the British Museum, gives great weight to this Albert Pike story.

    Side Note: It is also said (yet hard to prove for most laymen) that the Rothschilds always keep a place at the dinner table for “you know who”….

    Would you like to help me in my research?
    Knowing thy enemy is a must – as stated in the ‘Art of War’.

    Anthony, I started my research into various matters back in the mid-’70s. One of the first topics I explored was the relationship and significance of the ‘lodge boys.’
    They sold their souls long ago for prestige, false titles and ready access to power. Look around in the Washington crowd, as many current ‘leaders’ are lodge boys.
    They owe much to quasi-religious ties, and one of those quasi-religious ties is responsible for much of the woes that have befallen America. Some people call it a branch of Christianity, but it isn’t.
    When you work for the dark forces, God has NOTHING to do with it.
    God will put an end to it, but in the interim, I refuse to have anything to do with any group that combines light and dark, and somehow is supposedly “worthy” of my support – if only I could ‘see the light.’
    God says stay away from them. They will cut their own throats, and do it because they’re told it ‘comes from the top.’ “It” comes from the bottom, disguised as light.
