The Titanic Coverup Unravels
By Christopher Condon
January 29, 2015

*** begin quote ***

Gerhard Wisnewski is a German writer of non-fiction books and articles. He writes in the German language and his books are widely read in the German-speaking countries. He has written a number of successful books, many of them dealing with what are popularly termed conspiracy theories. One of his recent books, entitled Das Titanic Attentat (“The Titanic Murder”), is about the sinking of the Titanic in April, 1912. Unlike some of his books, it is not available in English translation but is definitely worth reading if you know German.

According to the conventional version, the mighty but overconfident Titanic accidentally struck an iceberg in the North Atlantic on its maiden voyage from Europe to New York. The collision tore a hole in the ship’s hull and caused it to sink with a huge loss of life. For a long time, it was difficult to challenge this official version because the best evidence, the sunken ship itself, had permanently settled in one of the deepest areas of the Atlantic Ocean, too deep to be accessible to investigators. (Incidentally, if the Titanic had sunk just a few miles to the west of where it actually sank, it would have wound up in much shallower waters where it would have been possible, even in 1912, to get to the wreckage.) Advancements in technology, however, finally made it possible to reach the Titanic in 1985 and to photograph and otherwise examine the wreckage. The new evidence that has emerged from this and from other sources has prompted Wisnewski to rethink the traditional story and to raise some disturbing questions.

  • Why did the crew make no effort to plug the leak in the Titanic, something sailors are trained to do?
  • Why did the Titanic deliberately sail into a field of icebergs?
  • Why have none of the photographs taken of the Titanic since 1985 found much damage that could be attributed to an iceberg?
  • Why did the Titanic’s crew throw an especially lavish party on the night of the disaster, a party that made many passengers and crewmembers drunk?
  • What happened to the Titanic’s logs and nautical maps? After the Titanic allegedly hit an iceberg, the crew still had 2.5 hours to save them, yet failed to do so, offering the excuse that even 2.5 hours was not enough. A few years later, however, the Lusitania was hit by a torpedo and sank in 18 minutes, yet its crew still managed to save most of these things.
  • Why did so many passengers cancel their reservations at the last minute, including some close associates of the owner, J.P. Morgan? The cancellation was especially puzzling in the case of Mr. and Mrs. J. Horace Harding. The Hardings said that they had suddenly realized that they were in a hurry to get to New York, so they switched their reservations to the Mauretania, which was scheduled to leave Europe sooner. Apparently the Hardings had not read the timetables very closely, because although the Mauretania did indeed leave Europe sooner, it also arrived in New York later.
  • What happened to Luis Klein, a surviving crewmember and native Hungarian of the Jewish faith? After the disaster, Klein had been outspoken in his criticism of the Titanic’s captain and top crewmembers. Perhaps for this reason, he was called to testify before the US Senate. Unfortunately, on the day before he was to do so, Klein disappeared from his Washington hotel room and was never seen again.
  • After the alleged collision with the iceberg, why did the Titanic’s crew members hasten the ship’s demise by making almost every conceivable mistake?
  • Why was no effort made to delay the sinking of the Titanic by jettisoning the anchor and chains? The anchor alone weighed 50 tons.
  • Why were the sleeping passengers not awakened?
  • Why did Captain Edward John Smith commit a criminal offense by sailing his ship for days with an unextinguished fire in his ship’s coal bunker? Why did he sign a false statement in Southampton, England denying the existence of this fire?
  • Why did it take the crew 2 hours to lower all the Titanic’s lifeboats into the water when they could have done it in 1 hour?
  • Before the Titanic could deploy any of its own lifeboats, there were already lifeboats in the water that could not have come from the Titanic. From which ship did these lifeboats come? From the mysterious ship that was spotted in the distance but never identified? What was the name of that ship and why did it not come to the Titanic’s rescue?
  • Why did the Titanic crew not follow the custom of giving priority to the passengers over themselves?
  • How did a collision with an iceberg cause the Titanic to sink? Ships frequently collide with icebergs, yet rarely sink, and almost never as fast as the Titanic sank.
  • What caused the Titanic to break in half shortly before it sank? Could the breakup of the Titanic have been caused by the two explosions heard minutes before?
  • Why were the Titanic’s crew members as well as many of the surviving passengers threatened with dire consequences if they talked to reporters and investigators?
  • Why did many crewmembers quit the Titanic after the ship’s first stop in Cherbourg, France rather than complete the voyage to New York?
  • Why did the men who had been working in the Titanic’s boiler room quit and take new jobs as bricklayers before they could tell their story to government investigators?

*** and ***

Advancements in deep sea technology are making it possible to probe more and more deeply into this mystery. In recent times, for example, investigators have started to focus their attention on the four-foot-high iron letters on the bow of the ship that spell out “Titanic.” From the preliminary examination of this lettering, it appears as though these letters were fastened on top of still other letters, suggesting that the ship may once have had another name. Two of the letters have fallen off the wreck and probably disappeared forever. Underneath these letters are the letters M and P, letters which could have helped to spell out “Olympic.” Unfortunately, the other letters are rather difficult to decipher and could be interpreted in any number of ways.

There are discrepancies between what we know of the ship on the bottom of the Atlantic and the Titanic. The former appears to have been painted twice, the first time in grey and the second time in black. We know that the Olympic was painted twice, but to the best of our knowledge, the Titanic was painted only once and in black. Also, the ship on the bottom of the Atlantic was outfitted with an elaborate system to facilitate the deployment of lifeboats. To the best of our knowledge, the Olympic had such a system but the Titanic never did.

As technology progresses, we may someday know the full story of the Titanic disaster. It goes without saying that if Gerhard Wisnewski’s suspicions turn out to be correct, the reputation of J.P. Morgan will be forever destroyed.

WOW!

I never heard so many good unanswered questions about Titanic.

One should NEVER EVER trust the “story”.

Why can’t we ever get the “straight story”?

Argh!

And, yet, I have a tin foil hat?

If there was an English translation, I’d buy it.

TINFOILHAT: Did dot gov pay Sony to pull the movie?

Monday, December 29, 2014

Just some ramblings
Posted on December 19, 2014

*** begin quote ***

Im fascinated at the notion of the North Koreans determining what movies we can and cannot watch. I have a conspiracy theory that the .gov paid Sony to pull the movie and compensate them for their loss in order to avoid the threatened ‘events’ that would take place at theaters in the US that showed the movie. But…thats all conspiracy theory. On the other hand, you can bet right now that industry underwriters are changing their policies to specifically exempt this sort of blackmail in future studio insurance policies.

*** end quote ***

Certainly makes sense.

Given how chummy BHO44 is with the Hollywood elite.

Not that “We, The Sheeple” will ever find out!

Argh!

Did FDR Provoke Pearl Harbor?
By Patrick J. Buchanan
December 9, 2014

*** begin quote ***

At a Nov. 25 meeting of FDR’s war council, Secretary of War Henry Stimson’s notes speak of the prevailing consensus: “The question was how we should maneuver them (the Japanese) into … firing the first shot without allowing too much danger to ourselves.”’

*** end quote ***

After reading Stinnet’s book “Day of Deceit: The Truth About FDR and Pearl Harbor”   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Day_of_Deceit, I joined the “Pearl Harbor advance-knowledge conspiracy theory” believers.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pearl_Harbor_advance-knowledge_conspiracy_theory

While we may never know for sure, we can be sure that the Gooferment, and its politicians and bureaucrats, should NEVER be trusted. EVER!

Using the compressed ultrafast photography (CUP) technique, bullet pathways could be reconstructed in retrospect, once again opening up the Kennedy assassination conspiracy theories.

I don’t understand how this will help, but anything that can confirm or refute, I’m interested in.

TINFOILHAT: PATCON and the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing

They’ll Be Back: PATCON, Oklahoma City, and Jesse Trentadue’s Lonely Crusade for Justice
By William Norman Grigg
Pro Libertate Blog
November 15, 2014

*** begin quote ***

It was during the second conversation with Quirk that Matthews explicitly mentioned his role as an undercover operative in an FBI initiative called called PATCON, or “Patriot Conspiracy.” This was a long-term provocation campaign in which the Bureau sought “to infiltrate and incite the militia and evangelical Christians to violence so that the Department of Justice could crush them,” explains Trentadue.

The man Matthews had known as “Don Jarrett” had been his FBI handler – and apparently still is, given the deference to him shown by Matthews. Now that the Regime has largely shifted its domestic focus from Muslims back to “sovereign citizens,” Jarrett is probably busy orchestrating homeland security theater operations involving the “Radical Right.”

Assuming that “Don Jarrett” is still the name of Matthews’ former handler, he may currently be working as an “Independent Insurance Professional” in Florida. According to his vita, Jarrett retired from the FBI in 1998, becoming an insurance investigator and security consultant for the NFL. It’s not clear how he wound up in Afghanistan last year: A May 1, 2013 email to Matthews reported that he was in Afghanistan, and that he expected to leave at the end of June. Using his last known email address, I sent Jarrett a number of questions to which he has not replied. Given PATCON’s history the chances are pretty good that wherever Jarrett finds himself, bad things are being done to innocent people.

“Ruby Ridge was a PATCON operation,” Trentadue has pointed out. “Waco was a PATCON operation. And so, too, I believe, was the Oklahoma City Bombing.”

The Gooferment is getting bigger and bigger. The bigger it gets, the more out of control it gets.

Back tracking on key events — it always seems there’s Gooferment rat or rats in the proverbial haystack of needles.

This particular report casts doubt on the whole 1995 Oklahoma City bombing “story”.

TINFOILHAT: LBL’s stand in killed?

LBJ’s Double – Cousin Jay Bert Peck – And his Untimely Death
By Phil Nelson
November 15, 2014

*** begin quote ***

It all started in 1968, when a news item appeared in two national magazines announcing that Lyndon Johnson had a “double,” a man who was known to have “stood-in” for Johnson on a number of occasions when Johnson wanted his presence known to have “existed,” even though he needed to be someplace else at that point in time. Lyndon’s cousin, J. Bert Peck, had a close resemblance to Johnson, and a voice that sounded like him.

*** and ***

The fact that these scenes were originally in the movie, as noted by the news articles above, but deleted at some later point, suggests that someone did not want the fact that Johnson had a “double” to become widely known to the public, at least in such a record that might become permanent, like a movie.  All of which begs the questions, “Who would have had the power to delete that footage, and change the movie description to delete all references to the “presidential” scenes and change the credits to list only “J. B. Pick” (instead of “Peck”) and instead of listing his character name (LBJ) it is only listed as “uncredited.”   One must carefully ponder this question and consider the implications, as part of this exercise in deductive reasoning: “Is it possible that LBJ picked up the telephone and called Jack Valenti one day in August, 1968, and asked (or, more likely, ordered) him to have those changes made to the movie? If not, how then did these obviously telling yet otherwise innocuous set of changes get made, and by whose order?”

*** and ***

There was scarcely any other news about Jay Bert Peck’s murder, except for his obituary two days later.  The abbreviated news coverage on the death of Mr. Peck resulted in yet another unresolved anomaly:  Although he was found by his wife Dorothy shortly after the gunshot, when she ran into the bedroom to find him lying in bed with a bullet wound in the head, there was no indication in any report of a gun ever being found at the scene.

*** end quote ***

Who indeed?

There are many murders associated with LBJ. Not the least of which is the Kennedy assasination.

I doubt we will ever know the truth.

A body double plays a central role in the Heinlein novel Double Star (1956). So, it’s very plausible.

I don’t know what to make of the whole tale. Except to duct tape my tin foil hat on a little tighter and trust politicians, bureaucrats, …

… and the “media” a lot less. If that’s even possible!

TINFOILHAT: Malaysian Airlines flight MH 370 the great aviation mystery

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

Missing Plane: Emirates Head Critical of MH 370 Investigation
Interview Conducted by Andreas Spaeth

Despite months spent searching for Malaysia Airlines flight MH 370, not a trace has been found.Why is there still no trace of flight MH 370? In an interview, Sir Tim Clark, head of Emirates Airline, is sharply critical of the investigation thus far. He believes someone took control of the plane and maintained it until the very end.

*** begin quote ***

Tim Clark has been a senior manager at the airline Emirates since 1985 and has been instrumental in developing it into one of the world’s largest airlines. Today, the 64-year-old is seen as a knowledgeable expert and critic of the aviation industry. His view of the vanished Malaysian Airlines flight MH 370 is a provocative one. The plane that disappeared was a Boeing 777 and Emirates operates 127 such aircraft, more than any other airline in the world.

SPIEGEL ONLINE: It’s now October, seven months after the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines flight MH 370, and we still don’t know what happened. What can still be done to gain some degree of clarity?

Clark: MH 370 remains one of the great aviation mysteries. Personally, I have the concern that we will treat it as such and move on. At the most, it might then make an appearance on National Geographic as one of aviation’s great mysteries. We mustn’t allow this to happen. We must know what caused that airplane to disappear.

*** and ***

SPIEGEL ONLINE: At what point on the presumed flight path of MH 370 do your doubts begin?

Clark: There hasn’t been one overwater incident in the history of civil aviation — apart from Amelia Earhart in 1939 — that has not been at least 5 or 10 percent trackable. But MH 370 has simply disappeared. For me, that raises a degree of suspicion. I’m totally dissatisfied with what has been coming out of all of this.

*** end quote ***

A long read, but a very informative one.

Why is the equipment able to be disabled?

They make the smoke detectors tamper proof!

Any why aren’t the Gooferments, politicians, and bureaucrats demanding answers?

It’s like it’s all forgotten.

Argh!
