Wikipedia quotes Special Relationship as: "The term first came into popular usage after it was used in a 1946 speech by Winston Churchill. The two nations have been close allies during many conflicts in the 20th and 21st centuries, including World War I, World War II, the Korean War, the Cold War, the Gulf War, and the War on Terror.
Now we all know how contrived so much of Wikipedia is and this is no exception. Let me explain.
Firstly Winston Churchill used this term shortly after the end of WW2 thus catching the zeitgeist of the day. A man allegedly seeing us through the 'brave, glorious bloody and noble' attempts to stave off our 'freedoms, democracy and liberty' turning fascist. More of this revisionist history later.
While it's true the two nations have been close allies in all the wars mentioned in the Wikipedia entry, examining them in detail, it becomes very apparent there is nothing to be proud of supporting such wars, or blinding accepting the official narrative around any historical event. History has always been written by the victors, and that history often involves exaggerated (and sometimes completely false) tales of glory and heroic saviours.
World War 1 was as contrived a controversy built around the false flag assassination of useful stooge Archduke Ferdinand as you could conjure at that time. When after action was engaged in 1916 Germany swiftly looked like winning. The Kaiser pleaded with his English cousin, George V to put an end to the senseless and ridiculous 'family spat'. Standing in the wings the Rothschilds, owners, since Waterloo of the Bank of England, advised the King not to deal with his cousin, promising to bring in the USA to make the odds favour the British and their allies. The sinking of the Lusitania did the trick. Yet it took until 1917 for the US to participate, mostly due to their alliance with the Tsar in Russia. Again the Zionists took care of that by negotiating with inside elements in Russia to dispose of the whole Russian Royal family. Job done, President Wilson had no obstacles in his way preventing his election ticket being transgressed.
It is to be noted the US was not only virulently opposed to entering the war due partly to Wilson's election winning promises, it also had a loathing, as often expressed in the mainstream media of the day towards the Zionists who were pushing for this entrance. The reward of success, as has become well known, was the fateful document from Balfour. This promised the Zionists a homeland in Palestine. The handing over of such a deal that transpired following WW2. Once the US joined in, fortune turned and the usual virulent campaign of demonising the Germans, especially the Kaiser, swung into full propaganda mode. His exile to Holland following the promised defeat was sealed.
The Treaty of Versailles became a poster child for one of the greatest travesties of peace treaties in modern history, by way of crushing the German people utterly. Its oppression, banning and implementation of any military build up alongside financial and economic strangulation, led inexorably to the hyper inflation that led directly in the late twenties, to the rise of the nascent National Socialist Party getting their hands on something akin to an independent sovereign existence.
The banning of weapons development also became a useful cover for foreign investment programs led by Henry Ford and other US industrialists to spectacularly finance and benefit a secretly growing war machine morphing in later years into the Luftwaffe, the German Armed Forces and the very might setting its sights upon expansion throughout Europe.
The depth of involvement by the Americans in building Hitler's war machine has been as treasonous a secret as its cover up over decades. The involvement of the Bank of England, especially Sir Montagu Norman and the Eight Families of the banking fraternity of Wall Street and Germany that included JP Morgan, Rothschilds, Rockefeller, Kuhn Loeb, Schiff and Goldman Sachs all transpired and plotted to instigate another bloody world conflict.
Their efforts successfully creating the Crash of 1929, paved the groundwork for a global depression, an igniter for economic hardship like no other and an excuse for yet more global conflict. That has always been the MO for not only surviving economic disaster but a game plan exponentially growing the wealth of the super rich.
The Zionists, not the Jews, were instrumental in aiding and supporting the Nazi movement in becoming the 'useful idiot' to start a global conflict. The chemical, armaments manufacturers and aircraft industry that became the backbone to one of the largest and fastest growing build up of a modern army in Europe, defied all outward declaration of Germany's neutered and impotent ability to form any purposeful force of military might.
The Zionists aiding Hitler then set about destroying the influence and presence of the Jews and their successful integration into German society, banking and business world. It targeted the very banking interests instrumental in creating the power of the National Socialists. Ludwig Landmann, the first Jewish mayor of Frankfurt had endeavoured, after resigning his post, to resist these anti semitic actions. He himself targeted by the Nazis, under direction of Zionists, eventually fled the country for the relative safety of Holland.
However the likes of Kuhn Loeb, Goldman Sachs, Warburg and Schiff were adept in their fancy footwork covering complicity in Hitler's now Nazi Germany (The name itself a neat conflagration of National, as in National Socialist and Zionist).
As always in these war efforts tracks were sufficiently covered with an embargo on information the public ought to have been privy to, being edited out by a more and more compliant media, now more heavily owned by these entities.
Churchill's intention to see Hitler destroy the Bolsheviks overrode any concern for the maniacal rise of a puppet gone rogue, as Hitler swiftly became. The subsequent defeat and retreat of the German troops by Russia, despite initial successful inroads, dressed as relief from the Stalinist rule, immediately put paid to any hopes Russia would be destroyed. It left the British exposed, as the Americans once again refused to play ball and join the game. Down to the money men to manipulate and encourage the first Pearl Harbour false flag event, it successfully brought the Yanks into the fray, albeit late in the day.
That the Russians went on to be a decisive force in stifling Germany winning yet another war even today has been overlooked and barred from most people's innocent appraisal and taught history they were fed. The malicious playing down of Russia's decisive part in crucifying this global atrocity of manipulation merely augments the criminal elements dancing as the 'good guys'.
The whole post war 'fight' against communism became more a pay back for Russian successes in two world wars rather than fighting any real perceived 'enemy'. Soviet, and any communist regimes around the world including Korea, became suitable targets and ever greater an excuse to load the military industrial complex budgets. War, the threat of it became the raison d'être for establishing global domination. An enemy, and mighty enemy at that was now the force de rigeur needed to carry on the growth of the MIC.
The joint intelligence bonding of British Intelligence, CIA, NSA, Mossad became the secret special relationship in manipulating, infiltrating and usurping all powers not willing to bend to their global hegemony. Asymmetric warfare at its most lethal and most pernicious.
Korea, an abject failure though trumpeted a win, illustrated an unremitting lust for power and control. Massive slaughter of millions of innocents had little impact on a psychopathic mindset. Its lack of resolution to this day is testament to the uselessness of the adventure. Britain's own tainted record of belligerence started with the Greek Civil War, Palestine, Vietnam, Indonesian revolution, Malaya, Korea, Suez, the Mau Mau uprising, Cyprus, Muscat, Oman, Brunei, Jordan, Aden, Gulf Wars, Northern Ireland, Bosnia, Kosovo, Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya to name a few.
The US roll call of attrition and its serving of Freedum an' Demokracy includes many of those cited for the British plus Grenada, Panama, Liberia, Indo-China War, Laotian Civil War, Cambodia, South African Border War, Dominican Civil War, Vietnam War, Bay of Pigs, Syria, Iraq, Liberia, Italy, Philippines, Albania, Iran, Guatamala, Congo, Brazil, Cuba, Chile, East Timor, Yugoslavia and Haiti to name a few more.
If we look at this so called Special Relationship it is found fair and square in the militaristic and warmongering nature of these two nations. What draws their connectivity even closer is the relationship through abject abeyance to the Zionists, the Rothschild bankers cartel and all those infecting the Corporatocracy and political and media power centres. Today it is best illustrated through the Military Industrial Corporate Complex, lobby groups and specious NGOs and their like.
Economic ties, banking liaisons, cultural (read Hollywood et al), technological and not least National Intelligence communities are found bonded and intrinsically interwoven into a spider's web of control, manipulation and under the surface totalitarian and psychopathic control by the very few of the very many.
So many Presidents and Prime Ministers eulogise this relationship, pull it up the mast of international cooperation as the great and the good of our two nations. This is the big lie. It is the whitewashing of evil perpetrated by these two entities as a natural carry over from centuries of attrition both through Empire, Revolution (War of Independence) and a power struggle to rule the world in every conceivable way except in overt name.
The so called War of Independence, the War of 1812, The Chesapeake and Little Belt Affairs were all precursors to a power struggle continuing to this day. It was culminated and formalised in the modern world through the formation and establishment, after many decades, of effort and establishment of the foreign entity known as the Federal Reserve. With its inception in 1913, the bankers and money men were set to control the world. The later establishment of the Bank of International Settlements, in Basle sealed a monetary noose working hard to the present.
The difference today is that the Special Relationship is now merely a PR manoeuvre, a cover for a far deeper malaise, that of global hegemony. The present President, a buffoon, liar and manic tweeter uses his arrogant peacock strutting to masterfully negotiate frightful deals, trade wars of attrition and a psychotic loathing for international chess players who continue to outsmart, not only his players but the poodles that have become the UK, EU, NATO and other bit part actors.
That Australia, a part of the Commonwealth and close yap dog for the US experimentation of ways forward (through which a separate article will highlight) throws its Southern sphere weight around like a bantamweight in a Sumo wrestling ring. It is making such a fool of itself, reflecting the lunacy present in all the Western wastrels and yes nations, to an evil overarching cartel of malfeasance.
As the Orange One flies off to Ireland to his golf resort for R n R, our Queen retires back to petting her corgis, the failure called May disappears in June and this country is left to a circus of very British buffoons pretending there is still sunshine to set and rise ad infinitum and for the best of all possible worlds that to remain ruled by the Few over the poverty stricken and dying many.
History, the true history that is, has a nasty habit of upending such hubris and inflicting major shocks to the status quo. The Special Relationship is set to be exposed for the finest virulent and caustic propaganda it has always been.
Whether the world is able and ready to set course on a path far more egalitarian, far more peaceful and cooperative, we can only wait and see. The war this time could be either extinction or expansion. Both are potential outcomes, one would serve all the other extinguish all.
I know which I am gunning for!
