Rhiannon, do you know about Edith Cavell? She was a beautiful and courageous woman who almost exposed the central bankers’ scheme before it got off the ground. Indeed, she almost prevented World War I.
If it seems impossible that one woman could have prevented a world war, read on. Naturally the bankers had her executed.
Here’s her incredible life story…
On December 4, 1865, God shined a ray of light on a village in Norfolk, England that produced an extraordinary person named Edith Louisa Cavell.
Edith was home taught by her mother and by her father, who was a vicar. As a teenager she became fluent in French. This allowed her to leave England and get a job as a governess in Brussels, Belgium.
In 1895 Edith’s father became seriously ill, so Edith returned to Britain to care for him. She then decided to pursue nursing as a career. In 1896, after her father died, Edith entered the London Hospital Nurses’ Training School. Upon graduating she transferred to the St. Pancras Infirmary as a Night Supervisor. Three years later she transferred to the Shoreditch Infirmary (still in England) to take up the duties of Assistant Matron. Edith was not ambitious, but she rose anyway, because of her administrative skills and medical talents. Everyone could see she was strong and brilliant, with limitless energy and a deep concern for patients in her care.
In 1905 Florence Nightingale died. A noted surgeon in Belgium was so impressed with Ms. Nightingale’s career that he wanted another British nurse to run a new hospital-cum-nursing school, which the Belgian surgeon wanted to establish in Brussels. In 1907 the surgeon hired Edith Cavell to be his new Florence Nightingale, and to run his nursing hospital, which was the first of its kind in Belgium.
Edith exceeded all of the surgeon’s hopes. She had a remarkable grasp of Belgian culture, and was gifted regarding medical science. Everyone who met her was impressed.
In August 1914, World War I broke out, and a British expeditionary force was sent to Continental Europe. Edith was spending a holiday with her mother in England, and immediately returned to the teaching hospital that she ran in Belgium, knowing she would be needed.
On August 20, 1914, German troops entered the city of Brussels and took control of Edith’s teaching hospital. The Germans converted it to a Red Cross Hospital for German troops. When the Germans saw Edith’s medical and administrative skills, plus her commitment to pacifism, they kept her on as matron (i.e. head of the hospital).
As German casualties started to pour in, Edith cared for the Germans so well that the Germans regarded this British “enemy” as an angel.
Unknown to the Germans, Edith was also caring for British, French and Dutch soldiers who entered the same hospital, disguised as Belgian laborers. At this time, England had not yet officially entered the war, despite sending an expeditionary force to Europe. Allied soldiers that Edith cared for would be shot as spies if they were caught, and Edith would be sent to prison for helping them. Therefore Edith tended the Allied soldiers’ wounds in secret, and helped them escape from Belgium when the soldiers could walk. She always did this alone, so Belgian nurses in her hospital would not get into trouble with the Germans.
Soon Edith was secretly operating a medical unit for wounded Allied soldiers, plus an “underground railroad” to help them escape – all under the nose of German intelligence.
Note, however, that Edith was no “double agent.” She felt that wounded soldiers must be cared for, no matter which country they came from. She never committed sabotage or espionage against the Germans. On the contrary, she cared for German soldiers with all her energy. She was a simply a dedicated nurse. Throughout her life she remained devoted to peace and compassion.
Belgium quickly became a war zone. Food and medicine became scarce. Nonetheless, Edith managed to scrounge enough food to supply the hospital’s growing number of German patients, plus regular Belgian patients, plus the staff, plus the ever-rising numbers of Allied escapees.
By 1915, she had more than 200 British, French and Belgian soldiers secretly lodged at her hospital. These she cared for at night. The German soldiers she tended by day.
While Edith was doing all this, she also took charge of the Belgian Relief Commission: an international campaign in Allied countries to get food and medical supplies to war-ravaged Belgium. Millions of people in England began to call Edith the new Florence Nightingale.
One day the supplies began to dwindle, even though Allied charities were sending record amounts of food and medicine to Belgium. Everyone began to starve.
Edith discovered that central Bankers in England were diverting all the supplies (thousands of tons) to the German Empire, and were sending money to the Germans to buy these supplies. (At this point the fighting in Belgium was mainly between Germany and France, with a few Dutch and British expeditionary troops thrown in.)
When Edith discovered that bankers in England deliberately caused the famine in Belgium, she wrote a letter of protest to a British magazine The Nursing Mirror, which published the letter on April 15, 1915.
The letter came to the attention of the central Bankers. When William Wiseman ("Rothschild" and head of British intelligence) read Edith’s letter of protest, he exploded in rage. Edith had stumbled upon an ultra-secret. She was beautiful, charismatic, and wildly popular in England, plus Germany and the USA. Millions of people in the German Empire respected her, since she had helped so many wounded German soldiers. Edith had also helped get food to German troops, plus Allied troops, plus the people of Belgium. She was famous, and a person that everyone listened to. Thu she was in a position to threaten the plan to enslave the world through central Banking. She had to be liquidatd, and fast.
Now let me digress and explain why the bankers diverted all the food and supplies to Germany. Then I will return to Edith Cavell and what they did to silence her.
The Bankers’ plan was to destroy the Old Order, which consisted of five major empires (British, Russian, German, Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman). The Bankers would then build a new super-empire of centralized banking upon the ruins, and live as Gods among Others. They would use the weapon of debt, which is more powerful than guns or bombs.
To destroy the Old Order, the Bankers needed to start a World War, which meant they would first have to arm and finance the various Other empires they planned to annihilate. According to the plan, the German Empire and the Russian Empire would fight each other to a standstill. Then the Banker-led Bolsheviks would finish off the Romanov Empire from the inside. France and Germany would destroy each other in the west. Italy and the Austro-Hungarian Empire would destroy each other in the south. British Others would destroy Muslim Others of the Ottoman Empire in the east, thus fulfilling a dream that they have held for centuries.
Only the British Empire would be allowed to survive, since most Bankers at that time were headquarteted in London. After the war, they would recoup their investment by purchasing Germany’s remaining assets for pennies.
In 1913 the Bankers calculated that four years of total war would bring about their aims, but Germany and her allies only had enough supplies to fight for one year. Also the Bankers had already impoverished European nations by selling them battleships and armaments. Europe had no money, fuel, or ammunition to operate these weapons. Therefore the Bankers’ challenge was to get money and war supplies to all sides so they could destroy each other.
It would have been awkward to openly send money and arms to the German Empire, since this might cause Others on all sides to form business partnerships, rather than kill each other. Therefore the Bankers ordered the British and American governments to trade with Switzerland, Belgium, Holland, Denmark, Norway and Sweden. These nations in turn traded with Germany, thus ensuring that war materials from Bankers reached the German Empire.
In addition, the Bankers created the US Federal Reserve in 1913, just a few months before the war started. It was all part of the Grand Plan. The mastermind behind all this was Alfred Rothschild of London. Paul Warburg was one of his agents. The Income Tax Act was passed along with the Federal Reserve, and April 15th became income tax day in the USA. Ironically, April 15th was also the day when Edith Cavell wrote her letter to a British nursing magazine.
An income tax was necessary to help moderate inflation caused by fiat currency. If the Bankers shipped too much paper to Switzerland, their own countries would suffer inflation, which would defeat the entire game. Through an income tax, fiat currency was backed not by gold, but by human labor. This in turn allows Bankers to control the job market, the housing market, consumer debt, and so on. Money that is not hooked to labor is worthless.
Tax dollars squeezed from American Others were sent to Swiss and Swedish banks, which forwarded the money to German Others in the form of credit. Meanwhile British banks sent 45 million pounds to Swedish banks, which extended credit to Germany, which used that credit to slaughter British Others.
Through the new income tax of 1913, American Others paid to equip German Others they would soon be ordered to fight. Meanwhile Bankers established the Allied “blockade” of World War I to give them a monopoly in war profiteering. The “blockade” against Germany allowed an orderly shipment of goods to Germany.
When the Bankers had armed Germany, they needed a pretext to send millions of Others to their deaths. Therefore they paid the secretive “Black Hand” group to assassinate Austrian heir Arch Duke Ferdinand. This was a staged event, a pretext for war. (I do not have direct evidence for their role in the “Black Hand” group. It is an educated guess.)
Next, the Bankers paid German newspapers to run stories about the assassination of Arch Duke Ferdinand, thus ensuring that German Others became furious.
Voila: Lucifer’s game was in play, and Others began to die.
Don’t forget Edith Cavell. We will return to her below. She plays a crucial role in trying to stop the bankers.
At that time, the British Naval Attaché in Scandinavia was Rear Admiral M.P. Consett. His job was to keep track of the secret movement of war supplies from the Bankers to the Germans. Consett helped to administer the Bankers’ plan, as he describes in his book Triumph of the Unarmed Forces. This book was published in 1923, but it is still available at Amazon.com. “Unarmed forces” refers to money and supplies that Banks shipped to Germany during the war.
Consett writes that if the bankers had not continually supplied Germany with money and materials, the war would have ended in less than a year. He based this conclusion on information from the Bankers themselves. Consett obeyed them until he learned something that didn’t sit well with him as a naval officer.
During World War I, German U-boats were made from Swedish iron ore, which could not reach Germany, because Swedish vessels needed coal, and coal was controlled by Britain.
Therefore the Bankers sent massive supplies of coal to Swedish shipping interests. The Bankers wanted to make sure that Germany had enough U-Boats to destroy large numbers of Allied ships and personnel. Rear Admiral Consett (the book’s author) didn’t mind that Britain supplied the German army, but when he learned that Bankers were helping Germany to build U-boats, he protested.
This came to the attention of Robert Cecil, the British Minister of “Blockade.” Cecil was another "Rothschild", and a member of the “Round Table,” a cabal of Bankers that ruled England. (Whenever Bankers form a cabal to control the hated Others, they call the organization a ”round table.”) The Round Table’s plan was to fuel the German war machine until all sides were exhausted and ripe for enslavement via debt and centralized banking.
Robert Cecil told Admiral Consett to keep his mouth shut or face the consequences. The admiral did as he was told. By contrast, Edith Cavel had a backbone of steel, and was not so easily cowed, as we shall see below.
Germany also needed glycerin (animal fat) for the manufacture of explosives. England controlled the world glycerin trade. The Bankers desperately wanted Germany to have enough glycerin to kill Allied Others, but if they sold glycerin directly to Germany, the Others on all sides would wake up and stop killing each other. Therefore, once again, the Bankers sold glycerin to neutral countries, which then sold it to Germany, which used it to kill Allied Others.
With money and glycerin from Banks, and metal from Swedish ships powered by British coal, the Krupp Company in Germany grew from a small auto factory to a massive enterprise that cranked out guns and munitions. This is described in the famous book The Arms of Krupp.
As the slaughter commenced, its fury surprised the Bankers, who began to worry that one of the Other empires might actually come out on top. This would foil the bankers’ plan for their own post-war super-empire of centralized banking. Therefore the bankers reduced the flow of money and supplies to Germany in order to extend the bloodshed. When the Germans retreated, the Bankers sent more money and supplies to Germany. When the Germans advanced too far, the Bankers cut them off. The war had to be stretched out long enough for all sides to become exhausted and ripe for enslavement.
By 1917, millions of Others lay dead, and Europe was near the breaking point. Soldiers on all sides wondered why they should continue killing each other. Thousands of troops had mutinied in France, and were executed by their own officers. Everyone began to doubt the ‘glory’ of war. In short, people began to question the core of the plan, though they did not realize that Bankers were behind it.
Unfortunately Europe was not yet exhausted enough for them to take total control. The slaughter would have to rage for at least another year.
Therefore the Bankers ordered England to start drafting men into the Army. Until that time, the British Army had always been a volunteer force, and had already fought for two years in World War I without conscription. England started drafting men in 1917, three years after the war started in Europe. Also the Bankers got the USA into the war.
However there was a slight problem with the USA. In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson had been re-elected on the campaign slogan, “He kept us out of the war.” A few months after he began his second term, the Bankers ordered him to send American Others to their deaths.
To solve this problem, the Bankers arranged to have the RMS Lusitania sunk. Also, one of the Bankers, Max Warburg (Paul’s brother, and head of German inteligence) contacted Arthur Zimmermann, the German Secretary for Foreign Affairs. Warburg ordered Zimmerman to send a telegram to Germany’s ambassador in Mexico. The telegram promised Mexico that if Mexico took Germany’s side, and Germany won the war, then Germany would give US territory back to Mexico. Then the Banker-owned newspapers in the USA circulated this news, which enraged the American Others.
By December 1918, the war had consumed the Ottoman, Russian, and Austro-Hungarian Empires, and Germany was ready for enslavement. Therefore the Bankers closed the spigot of money and supplies to the Central Powers. This caused the German Empire to collapse as suddenly and mysteriously as it began.
Thanks to WW I bloodbaths such as Verdun (800,000 dead), the Bankers dealt a mortal blow to the optimistic spirit of Western Civilization. Since then, they have used debt to enslave the world.
BACK TO EDITH CAVELL
If Edith had managed to alert the public back in 1915 to what the Bankers were doing, millions of lives would have been saved. (If you were a British soldier, and you knew that Bankers in England and the USA were supplying the Germans, would you agree to die?)
By January 1915, England was gearing up for battle, which had already raged for five months in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. Japan was also fighting Russia in the Far East. (Jacob Schiff, the "Rothschild" who helped design the U.S. Federal Reserve, supplied both Russia and Japan in that war.)
On April 15, 1915, Edith’s letter of protest was published in The Nursing Mirror magazine. Bankers noticed this because they had been watching Edith closely. As head of the Belgian Relief Commission, Edith could influence the flow of money and supplies.
William Wiseman, the Banker in charge of British Intelligence, immediately contacted Max Warburg, the Bankers in charge of German Intelligence, and told Warburg to arrest and liquidate Edith as a British spy in Belgium. Wiseman also contacted Max’s brother Paul Warburg, the head of the U.S. Federal Reserve. If the three of them handled their murder of Edith correctly, Edith would be a martyr that would get British Others into the war.
On July 25, 1915, Otto Mayer of the German Secret Police arrested Edith and demanded she confess that she was a British spy. Edith refused. Mayer put her in an interrogation room and badgered her for three days, but Edith could not be broken. She had done no wrong, and had nothing to hide. Mayer did not know what to do. Threfore Max Warburg, being ruthless, told Otto Mayer (the German secret police agent) to threaten Edith with the deaths of many Belgians if Edith did not confess.
It worked. Edith would not save her own life it it meant the deaths of others.
Next, the Germans held a court martial that lasted two days. The only incriminating evidence, apart from Edith’s forced “confession,” was a tattered postcard from a Britsh soldier who thanked Edith for saving his life.
Even then, the actual “crime” Edith was charged with only carried a sentence of three months by German law. However the bankers ordered their subordinates to sentence Edith to death.
The American and Spanish Ambassadors to Belgium protested, stressing the fair way in which Edith had treated all wounded soldiers. Thousands of Germans wrote letters to their government demanding that Edith be released. Belgians pleaded for her life. Britons marched in the streets. Americans wrote to the Red Cross — but the person in charge of the British contingent of the Red Cross was Robert Cecil, the "Rothschild" who had told Admiral Consett to keep his mouth shut regarding the Bankers’ plan.
Despite the power of the Bankers, so many people became involved that Edith’s execution was delayed for ten months, during which time she rotted in prison.
Finally on October 12, 1915 the bankers decided to get rid of her. The Germans told an Anglican Chaplain, Reverend Stirling Gahan, that Edith’s time was up. The reverend was allowed to give Edith her Holy Communion, at which time Edith told him, “Patriotism is not enough. I must have no hatred or bitterness for anyone.”
At 2:00 in the morning she was marched out to be shot. (Her monument in Trafalgar Square, London, says she was shot at dawn. Also a 1930 movie about Edith was titled “Dawn.” This is dramatic, but inaccurate. Edith was shot "in style", under cover of night while everyone else was asleep.)
As she was being tied to a post, she told a German pastor named Le Saur, “Please ask Reverend Gahan to tell my loved ones that my soul, as I believe, is safe, and that I am glad to die for my country.”
A minute later, a firing squad sent Edith back to the Eternal Light that had sent her to the world of mortal men. She was two months short of her fiftieth birthday.
Britain and Germany fell into mass grief, but the Bankers owned all the newspapers, and went to work transforming grief into rage. Britain screamed, “War!” Thus, millions of Others marched off to join Edith in eternity.
Ms. Cavell’s body was buried at the execution site, but after the war it was exhumed and returned to the UK. A memorial service was held at Westminster Abbey, led by King George V. Then Edith’s casket was taken by special train to Norwich, England, the town where Edith was born. Her body was reburied on Life’s Green at the east end of Norwich Cathedral.
In France and Belgium, she was just as revered as she was in England. For years after her death, French and Belgian parents named their newborn daughters “Edith.” The French chanteuse Edith Piaf was named after her. A volcano-like feature on the planet Venus was named after her (“Cavell Corona”).
Today a service is held at Edith’s grave in England every year on whatever Saturday is nearest to October 12, the execution date. Sometimes services are also held on top of Mount Edith Cavell in Alberta, Canada.
As mourners celebrate Edith’s courage and humanity, they assume that the Germans shot Edith because she helped Allied soldiers escape Belgium. Very few ever learn that Edith was shot on orders from Bankers in their plan to enslave the world.
For the Bankers, it was just another false flag operation; just another Other silenced, just another river of "Other" blood to sweeten their day.

"I think we show conclusively they do not come from further out [in space]. They are accelerated in the radiation belt itself," said Reiner Friedel, co-author of a paper published in the July issue of the journal Nature Physics.
"When killer electrons collect in large numbers, they can penetrate a spacecraft and build up a significant electrical charge.
"The charge is released as a type of electric bolt that can devastate sensitive equipment.
"In the outer radiation belts, things are very dynamic," he said.
"Particles can get lost, wiped out completely in a very fast time range, and they can become reaccelerated to levels far exceeding the average level—three orders of magnitude up—in just a couple of days."
"The main reason we're trying to come up with models of the radiation belt [is to] predict when these events are going to happen."
After reading this article (thanks, David Pescovitz and Boing Boing) it is hard not to draw similarities to the fabled Photon Belt legendarily 'made up of electrons, positrons, and negatively-charged particles which, when combined, have at least one important quality: they are extremely reflective' and wreak havoc with electricity.
There is a theory that states 1 of 2 things will happen:
If our Sun enters the belt before the Earth 'we will experience 4 to 5 days and nights or 110 hours of immediate and total darkness. That is at least three days and nights without the sun rising.' Doesn't this sound like an astronomical resurrection?
If the Earth enters the belt before our Sun 'the sky will appear to be on fire - incredibly bright and very damaging to the eyes. This also will last a duration of 4 to 5 days and nights ... During this Null time there will be an energy vacuum that will cause ... all electrical power as we know it to cease to exist .. all electrical power generation systems on the planet utilize the planetary magnetic grid to function and in the Null Zone the earth's grid will be immediately neutralized.'
Doesn't this sound similar to the effects of the 'Killer Electrons' as they react with the Space Shuttles:
"[The particles] pose a danger to humans because of cumulative radiation exposure and also by damaging the spacecraft on which they are dependent," said Mike Xapsos, a researcher at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center unaffiliated with the new research.
When killer electrons collect in large numbers, they can penetrate a spacecraft and build up a significant electrical charge.
The charge is released as a type of electric bolt that can devastate sensitive equipment.
"One common effect is that they cause solar arrays to degrade, and those often supply power to spacecraft," Xapsos said.
If these 'Killer Electrons' are causing significant problems to space shuttles why wouldn't they also cause reactions with the earth and her atmosphere (which, i would assume, is traveling through much of the same space on a much larger scale)? The main topic of environmentalists and politicians these days is Global Warming, with much thanks to individuals such as Al Gore and David Suzuki.
Isn't it just as possible that we are affecting our environment and our environment is being affected from an outside source?
The Soul that rises with us, our life's Star,
Hath had elsewhere its setting,
And cometh from afar;
Not in entire forgetfulness
And not in utter nakedness,
But trailing clouds of glory do we come
From God, who is our home.
Whither is fled the visionary gleam?
Where is it now, the glory and the dream?
