Was Titanic Sinking an Insurance Scam?

The  Olympic, damaged in a collision and destined for the scrapyard, may have been disguised as its sister ship, the Titanic. This raises questions about the true nature of the "accident" which took place 100 years ago today.

In 1908, financier J.P. Morgan planned a brand new class of luxury liners that would enable the wealthy to cross the Atlantic in previously undreamed-of opulence.  The construction of the giant vessels, the 'Olympic', the 'Titanic' and the 'Britannic,' began in 1909 at the Harland and Wolff  shipyard in Belfast, Ireland.

Unfortunately for Morgan, this money-making venture went a little awry.  The Olympic, the first of the three sister-ships to be completed was involved in a serious collision with the British Royal Navy cruiser, HMS Hawke in September 1911 in Southampton a few weeks after its maiden voyage. It had to be  'patched-up' before returning to Belfast to undergo proper repair work.
In hindsight, it does seem strange that the Olympic, the first of the 'sisters' to enter service, was never given the publicity her younger sister, the Titanic, enjoyed the following year  Why would that be? 

In the meantime, a Royal Navy inquiry into the accident found the Olympic at fault for the collision and this meant that the owner, White Star Line's insurance was null and void.  The White Star Line was out of pocket to the tune of at least £800,000 (around $90m today) for repairs and lost revenues. 

However, for Morgan and the White Star Line, there was even worse news.
 It is believed that the keel of the ship was actually twisted and therefore  beyond repair, which would have effectively meant the scrapyard. The White Star Line would have been bankrupted, given its precarious financial situation..

According to Robin Gardner's book, 'Titanic, the Ship that Never Sank?'
the seeds were sown for an audacious insurance scam - the surreptitious switching of the identities of the two ships, Olympic and Titanic.
Gardner presents credible testimonies, indisputable facts and evidence, both written and photographic, that suggest that the two ships were indeed switched with a view to staging an iceberg collision or other unknown fatal event.

According to Gardner, "Almost two months after the Hawke/Olympic collision, the reconverted Titanic, now superficially identical to her sister except for the C deck portholes, quietly left Belfast for Southampton to begin a very successful 25-year career as the Olympic.

TITANIC AND HER TWO SISTER SHIPS POSTER -01.jpgBack in the builders' yard, work progressed steadily on transforming the battered hulk of the Olympic into the Titanic.  The decision to dispose of the damaged vessel would already have been taken. ...  Instead of replacing the damaged section of keel, longitudinal bulkheads were installed to brace it". 

How significant then in the light of this statement, that when the wreck of the Titanic was first investigated by Robert Ballard and his crew after its discovery in 1987, the first explorations of the wreckage reportedly showed (completely undocumented in the ships original blueprints) iron support structures in place which appeared to be supporting and bracing the keel. 

This was never satisfactorily explained but would certainly be significant as it was reported by the puzzled Ballard himself who of course at that time knew nothing (and probably still does not even now) about the alleged switching of the two ships' identities.

MHO...Anon is correct in his observations about the true motivation for the bombing (not sinking) of the Titanic (or Olympia as the case may be). Most notable amongst the Titanic's victims was John Jacob Astor, the predominant robber baron of the United States at the time.

Astor led a cabal of American Illuminati opposed to the Federal Reserve, not because they were averse to its inherent money monopoly, but more out of a fear that the Fed would transfer financial power away from the United States and back to Europe via the Rothschild banking dynasty. The American elite were simply afraid of losing their financial monopoly to a larger monopoly.

(The Smedley Butler "Business Plot" scandal was the final sweep of the broom by the international central banksters, as it eliminated the remaining American-based threats to the Federal Reserve.)

Just as with the World Trade Center buildings, an additional insurance fraud angle in the sinking of the Titanic is not only plausible but logical and consistent with the behavior of the Illuminati. After all, they are the quintessential multi-taskers, since they have the clandestine capability to make everything work to their own ultimate advantage.

Graham said (April 15, 2012):

I read the Titanic by John Hamer and found his article very informative.

There are some questions that beg to be asked?

In the photograph of the Titanic under the ocean where it rest today,we see a hole of steel blown out of the ship not inward?

Could this have been a bomb?

Where were the men to close off the one compartment, where the water was running in to the ship?

Were they all killed?

If they were killed,this may explain why the water went into five compartments to sink the ship.

Where on the Photograph of the Titanic ship on the ocean bed,do we see the iceberg damage of long gash, along the ship side, cutting into five compartments?

Could the sinking also be blamed on the Germans?

To get Britain into War with Germany and start World War One?

World War One for the British Royal Family Economic interest?

All round,what did Sir Winston Churchill,then in the Admiralty Department, gain by the sinking of the Titanic like the Lusitania?

Very interesting questions wouldn’t say Henry,



Many motives have been given for sinking the Titanic but one that isn't mentioned is that it was a psy-op -- a blow to humanity's sense of achievement. The unsinkable was indeed sinkable, and this applies to the human race as a whole. Remember we're dealing with Satanists.


Anon said (April 15, 2012):

The intentional sinking of the Titanic was a message to wealthy industrialists "not to" stand in the way of the creation of the Federal Reserve. Many of the wealthy passengers strongly opposed FIAT currency and its ramifications. Shortly, after the Titanic disaster the Federal Reserve was created.

The ship's Captain had sailed those waters for two decades. Why full steam ahead, falsified news reports that all was OK, and the use of white flares by the crew rather than red flares when the ship was sinking? White indicates everything is OK, red signifies and SOS. They just wanted to kill everyone! The Captain was part of suicide mission and he may have been a Jesuit. The Vatican and the Jesuits control the World.

The 1943 German film, Titanic, goes into detail about the profiteering of the owners of the liner, and how the key culprits escaped prosecution. Joseph Goebbels banned this film - perhaps because it exposed more than it was supposed to. If you can get hold of a copy, I highly recommend it. The truth was made public 67 years ago! Funny how every effort has been made to keep it out of the public domain (by every side, including alleged anti-Zionists!) I have a copy which I will upload to a sharing site as soon as I am able.
