History of False Flags: Problem, Reaction, Solution
False flag terrorism is a political tactic that has been used by governments throughout history, because a plausible pretext is required to motivate a nation to war. The people are then further manipulated using propaganda to shape public opinion, pushing the majority of the populous to accept the war.
In naval warfare, a “false flag” refers to an attack where a vessel flies a flag other than their true battle flag before engaging their enemy. It is a trick, designed to deceive the enemy about the true nature and origin of an attack.
False Flag Formed in Fire
Historically, the term “False Flag” is synonymous with the Reichstag Fire of 1933, designed to reinforce Adolph Hitler’s power. Hitler lost his presidential bid to Paul von Hindenburg in the 1932 German elections, winning less than 35% of the vote. Hindenburg reluctantly appointed Hitler as Chancellor of Germany because of the political pressure put on him by the National Socialist Party. One month after Hitler was sworn in, on February 27th 1933, the Reichstag arson attack on the German parliament in Berlin conveniently occurred. Hitler’s government claimed the fire was set by Communists, as a retaliation for the 1918 German Revolution which replaced the German federal constitutional monarchy with a democratic parliamentary republic which would be later known as the Weimar Republic.
A Dutch council Communist named Marinus van der Lubbe, along with four other accomplices, were blamed for the fire, all being found near by the building. German Judge Bürger, in his verdict, was careful to underline his belief that there had in fact been a Communist conspiracy to burn down the Reichstag, but declared that van der Lubbe had acted alone. He was the obvious scapegoat, or ‘patsy’, a term coined for Oswald in the Kennedy Assassination.
After the Reichstag Fire, a Decree was passed that the Nazi Party used as evidence that Communists were plotting against the German government. This event was key to the establishment of Nazi party in Germany.
In Germany, the term Reichstag Fire is now used to refer to a false flag actions perpetrated by the government to promote their own interests in order to gain more power and infuriate the public for retribution. This action generally includes the loss of civil rights and which encourages the obfuscation needed to protect the conspirators.
The first known historical account of the false flag tactic being used involved another fire, this time created by Roman Emperor Nero. The Great Fire of Rome in 64 AD, which the Roman consul and historian Cassius Dio, along with his contemporary Suetonius and others wrote that Emperor Nero was responsible for the fire.
The official narrative goes that Nero had one-third of the city torched as an excuse to build Domus Aurea, a 300 acre palatial complex that included a towering statue of himself, the Colossus of Nero.
Prior to the fire, the Roman Senate had rejected the emperor’s bid to level a third of the city to make way for a “Neropolis,” an urban renewal project. The Roman historian Tacitus wrote that when the population of Rome held Nero responsible for the fire, he shifted blame on the Christians for “hating the human race” and starting the fire.
In the 1780s, Swedish King Gustav III was looking for a way to unite an increasingly divided nation and raise his own falling political fortunes. Deciding that a war with Russia would be a sufficient distraction but lacking the political authority to send the nation to war unilaterally, he arranged for the head tailor of the Swedish Opera House to sew some Russian military uniforms. Swedish troops were then dressed in the uniforms and sent to attack Sweden’s own Finnish border post along the Russian border. The citizens in Stockholm, believing it to be a genuine Russian attack, were suitably outraged, and the Swedish-Russian War of 1788-1790 began.
In the late 1800s the United States got into the false flag game, looking for an excuse to kick Spain out of Cuba. Big business in the United States was heavily invested in sugar, tobacco and iron in the Caribbean islands.
The U.S.S. Maine was sent to Havana in January of 1898 to protect these business interests after a local insurrection broke out. Three weeks later, early on the morning of February 15, an explosion destroyed the forward third of the ship anchored in Havana’s harbor, killing more than 270 American sailors.
President McKinley blamed Spain after the U.S. Naval Court of Inquiry declared that a naval mine caused the explosion.
American newspapers blamed the Spanish despite a lack of evidence. “You furnish the pictures and I’ll furnish the war,” newspaper tycoon William Randolph Hearst told Frederic Remington after the illustrator reported that the situation in Cuba did not warrant invasion.
A number of historians and researchers later argued that the ship was blown up by the United States to provide a false flag pretext to invade Cuba and expel Spain.
In order to get America into WW1, many historians believe that President Woodrow Wilson used the sinking of the Lusitania as a pretext for war. With nearly two thousand travelers, including one hundred Americans, killed on May 7, 1915, by a German U-boat torpedo that hit the RMS Lusitania, a luxury Cunard Line British ocean liner.
Prior to the sinking, the German embassy in Washington issued a warning. Newspapers in the United States refused to print the warning or acknowledge the German claim that the ship carried munitions. Wilson’s government issued a flurry of diplomatic protests after the sinking and exploited the tragedy two years later as a pretext for America to enter the First World War.
It was discovered in 2008 by divers that the Lusitania carried more than four million rounds of rifle ammunition.
“There were literally tons and tons of stuff stored in unrefrigerated cargo holds that were dubiously marked cheese, butter and oysters,” Gregg Bemis, an American businessman who owns the rights to the wreck and is funding its exploration, told The Daily Mail.
Late 20th Century False Flag
In 1954, the Israelis activated a terrorist cell in response to the United States making friends with the Egyptian government and its pan-Arab leader, Gamal Abdel Nasser. The Israelis were worried Nasser would nationalize the Suez Canal and continue Egypt’s blockade of Israeli shipping through the canal.
Israeli Prime Minister David Ben Gurion decided a false flag terrorist attack on American interests in Egypt would sour the new relationship. He recruited and dispatched a terror cell that pretended to be Egyptian terrorists.
The plan, however, contained a fatal flaw. Israel’s top secret cell, Unit 131, was infiltrated by Egyptian intelligence. After a member of the cell was arrested and interrogated, he revealed the plot and this led to more arrests. Israeli agents were subjected to a public trial revealing details of the plan to firebomb the U.S. Information Agency’s libraries, a British-owned Metro-Goldwyn Mayer theatre, a railway terminal, the central post office, and other targets.
In order to deflect blame, the Israeli government tried to frame its own Defense Minister, Pinhas Lavon, but the true nature of the plot was eventually made public.
Back in Cuba 60 years later, a covert war is waging against the communist regime there, under the CIA’s Operation Mongoose, the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff unanimously proposed state-sponsored acts of terrorism in side the United States.
The plan included shooting down hijacked American airplanes, the sinking of U.S. ships, and the shooting of Americans on the streets of Washington, D.C. The outrageous plan even included a staged NASA disaster that would claim the life of astronaut John Glenn.
Reeling under the embarrassing failure of the CIA’s botched Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba, president Kennedy rejected the plan in March of 1962. A few months later, Kennedy denied the plan’s author, General Lyman Lemnitzer, a second term as the nation’s highest ranking military officer.
In November of 1963, Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas.
Shortly after the JFK assassination, the Gulf of Tonkin phantom attack occurred on August 4, 1964, when President Lyndon Johnson went on national television and told the nation that North Vietnam had attacked U.S. ships.
“Repeated acts of violence against the armed forces of the United States must be met not only with alert defense, but with a positive reply. That reply is being given as I speak tonight,” Johnson declared.
Congress soon passed the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, which provided Johnson with pre-approved authority to conduct military operations against North Vietnam. By 1969, over 500,000 troops were fighting in Southeast Asia.
Johnson and his Secretary of Defense, Robert McNamara, had bamboozled Congress and the American people. In fact, North Vietnam had not attacked the USS Maddox, as the Pentagon claimed, and the “unequivocal proof” of an “unprovoked” second attack against the U.S. warship was a ruse.
Following the Second World War, the CIA and Britain’s MI6 collaborated through NATO on Operation Gladio, an effort to create a “stay behind army” to fight communism in the event of a Soviet invasion of Western Europe.
Gladio quickly transcended its original mission and became a covert terror network consisting of rightwing militias, organized crime elements, agents provocateurs and secret military units. The so-called stay behind armies were active in France, Belgium, Denmark, The Netherlands, Norway, Germany, and Switzerland.
Gladio’s “Strategy of Tension” was designed to portray leftist political groups in Europe as terrorists and frighten the populace into voting for authoritarian governments. In order to carry out this goal, Gladio operatives conducted a number of deadly terrorists attacks that were blamed on leftists and Marxists.
In August of 1980, Gladio operatives bombed a train station in Bologna, killing 85 people. Initially blamed on the Red Brigades, it was later discovered that fascist elements within the Italian secret police and Licio Gelli, the head of the P2 Masonic Lodge, were responsible for the terror attack.
According to Vincenzo Vinciguerra, a Gladio terrorist serving a life-sentence for murdering policemen, the reason for Gladio was simple. It was designed “to force these people, the Italian public, to turn to the state to ask for greater security.
911 and Beyond
There is no doubt that this political tactic has been used countless times to gain more power. More recently, the 911 attack on the World Trade Center was known, at the very least, to be a possibility by the government. The perpetrators from the previous attack in 1993 drew pictures of the WTC, on the cell walls in prison, with airplanes crashing into them in New York.
The attack on WTC7 and the resulting collapse, appears to be designed to hide evidence, because it was never hit by any plane. While the Pentagon was conveniently hit in the precise location where all the records were, the ones that contained the paperwork of the missing billions in the military budget that Donald Rumsfeld swore he would investigate the day before 911 occurred.
During President Trumps first two and a half years in office a handful of possible false flags have occurred. The first being the Las Vegas ‘Harvest’ festival massacre. Evidence revealed after this bloodbath occurred showed connections to Saudi Arabia, the Mexican mafia and the appearance of occult symbols in almost every aspect of this incident. Most recently the New Zealand Mosque shooting had some questionable elements that had many experts in intelligence question the organic motives of the shooter.
As we look ahead, the Deep State desperately needs more False flag events to escape from the collapsing structure of our fiat economic system and to control the ‘official’ narrative of this planet. This is why they want to get rid of Trump – he is messing with their control mechanisms. There is not an event that can take place without the media trying to tear Trump apart. This is part of the agenda to remove any outsider in order to allow Washington to do what it does best – manipulate the people and False flags are very much a part of that agenda.
