The term ‘Fake News’ has only recently entered common parlance, but it has a long history. Lies masquerading as news are as old as news itself, with royalty, governments, public figures and the mainstream media purveying it to manipulate public opinion. In an Orwellian twist those very same groups now employ it as a pejorative term against the alternative media and truth writers and bloggers as way of dismissing inconvenient truths and crushing dissent. We should all be aware of the state as keeper of the ‘the truth’. “Fake History” is another powerful weapon that has long been used by those in authority to retain that power by keeping the masses in the dark. As the late George Orwell wrote:
‘Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past’.
It is the unelected, unaccountable individuals who control central banking, governments and the mainstream media, who control the writing and teaching of the fake history that enables them to enslave us. After almost seventy years Orwell’s observation may appear somewhat clichéd, but it is now more relevant than ever. The highly perceptive author added: ‘The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.’
If we were able to grasp the truth of our past, could we begin to determine our own future? In the first instance the lies and mythology need to be challenged by honest history, hard but necessary truths and historical revision. ‘Revisionism’, according to Joseph Stromberg in an article he wrote about Professor Harry Elmer Barnes, ‘refers to any efforts to revise a faulty exiting historical record or interpretation.’  Professor Barnes, himself one of the greatest revisionists of the 20th century, wrote that revisionism has been most frequently and effectively applied to correcting the historical record relative to wars because ‘truth is always the first war casualty.’  Hold that important statement close. The emotional abuses and distortions in historical writing are greatest in wartime. Consequently, both the need and the material for correcting historical myths are most evident and profuse in connection with wars.
The present authors’ long years of research into the origins and conduct of the First World War of 1914-18 (though it continued until the signing of peace in 1919) demonstrates just how accurate Professor Barnes understanding was. Mainstream historians tell us that Germany was guilty of starting WW1 and committing the most barbarous crimes throughout. Proud, virtuous Britain, on the other hand, was forced to go to war against this German evil to fight ‘for freedom, civilisation and the integrity of small helpless nations.’ It is all a deliberately concocted lie. Patriotic myths and the victors’ wartime lies and propaganda had been scripted into Britain’s “Official History.” In truth, Britain – or to be more precise, immensely rich and powerful men in Britain – were directly responsible for the war that killed over 20 million people. Kaiser Wilhelm II and Germany did not start the war, did not want war and did what they could to avoid it.
But it is not just First World War history that is involved in the grand deception. Our contention that virtually the entire received history of the twentieth century has been faked, and requires urgent and complete revision, will raise no eyebrows in enlightened circles. It will most definitely elicit howls of derision and cries of “impossible” and “conspiracy theory” from the vast majority. Self interest or cognitive dissonance?
These blogs cannot cover the many thousands of examples of historical falsehoods or omissions we found in our historical research – our books do that – but it explains how the men behind the curtain actually created fake history. Their multifaceted approach ranges from the straightforward destruction or concealment of documents and books, to the more subtle methods of employing Court Historians and the ‘peer review’ system.
Who is responsible for fake history?
Before we examine how history is faked we need to understand who fakes it and why. In this regard, the most important influences on our work were books by Professor Carroll Quigley, Tragedy and Hope, A History of The World In Our Time and The Anglo-American Establishment.
The astonishing 1,300 page tome Tragedy and Hope, published in 1966, revealed the existence of secret society initially created by Cecil Rhodes in London in 1891. Its aim was to expand the British Empire to all habitable parts of the world. The enlarged empire would be run by wealthy upper class elites and based on English ruling class values. These people felt obliged to rule the entire world because they considered the vast majority of the human race was too ignorant to do so themselves. In the decades following Rhodes death in 1902, the secret society evolved. It became transnational as the singularly British elite merged with the American money-power; Quigley’s Anglo-American Establishment.
This would aim to become a world government. The geographical axis moved from London to New York. Later the U.N. was created as one of its instruments towards one world government. Members of the secret society controlled the United States, the White House, the Federal Reserve System and Wall Street. They likewise controlled Britain, Downing Street, the Bank of England and the City, the financial district of London. They ruled from behind the scenes and were not necessarily the major political players known to everyone. They selected major political figures and funded and controlled them. They would not be the great teachers or historians, but they decided who would be elevated to the great chairs of learning. They funded historians who wrote the fake histories. This secret group has been the world’s major historical force since before World War 1 and, according to Professor Quigley, every major event in history since then has been dominated by them. 
The secret society was … one of the most important historical facts of the twentieth century. Indeed, the Group is of such significance that evidence of its existence is not hard to find, if one knows where to look. 
We looked, followed the clues, trails and names presented by Professor Quigley and were utterly astonished to find that a secret cabal actually existed, with unfettered powers in Britain and the United States. Quigley called them the ‘Group’; we have termed them the Secret Elite, but they are also variably known as the Money Power, the Deep State, the Men behind the Curtain and so forth. The shocking evidence went much deeper than that exposed by Quigley, and proved to us beyond all doubt that the individuals involved in the cabal – in both London and New York – were responsible for starting, and unnecessarily prolonging, the First World War. Through enormous wealth, power and control of Oxford University, they were able to cover their tracks and fabricate a history which blamed Kaiser Wilhelm II and Germany. A century later, that fake history is still presented as truth by ‘eminent’ mainstream historians with links to Oxford.

I would like to correct the Russian Army Chief of Staff-it was General Nikolai Yanushkevich and his title was the Russian Chief of the General Staff. He reportedly told Sazonov, “After that (the order by Czar Nicholas II to fully mobilize), I shall go away, smash my telephone and generally adopt measures which will prevent anyone from finding me for the purpose of giving contrary orders which would again stop our general mobilization (referencing the 1909 and 1912 mobilizations).”

This is a further follow-up to the other questions I asked:
*To further add credence to your statement that the February, 1917 Revolution wasn’t a spontaneous event is a quote from Memories Of Russia, 1916-1919 by Princess Paley Chapter VI-The Tsar Abdicates: “A proof that this revolution had long been thought out and prepared for, was the circumstance that from the first day all the private automobiles in St. Petersburg/Petrograd were requisitioned within a few hours. Our beautiful car was one of the first to disappear and after serving the purpose of the members of the Provisional Government, it was accorded the honour of receiving Lenin on his arrival at the Finland Station!”
*Also, what role did the still and yet unresolved mystery surrounding Nicholas II, his family, and their staff did the Secret Elite play?

Dear Jim and Gerry,
Thanks for sending me a review copy of your new title and there a few clarifications I need to ask:
*You write in your first book that General Tatishchev, Czar Nicholas II’s aide-de-camp was taken off the St. Petersburg/Berlin train prior to the start of World War I by Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergius Sazonov. In the book Elusive Dove: The Search For Peace During World War I by Neil Hollander states that Sazonov had ordered the Russian Army Chief of Staff General Sukhomlinov (I think that’s his name)to smash his telephone and leave St. Petersburg so as not to be found. Can you please clarify this.
*You write in your second book about the Hoover Institute of War, Revolution, and Peace withholding the Russian documents relating to the lead-up to World War I. Are these the documents that were located in a Finnish barn? I think I maybe able to help you in this regard in getting those released.
*You also mention in your second book about the bribes paid out to soldiers ( I would also assume NCOs and officers) as well as union factory leaders to strike and take to the streets in February, 1917. Can you clarify this because it goes counter to what many believe that it was spontaneous. Also, you state that the bribes were paid out by American and British agents. Can you also clarify this as well. As a footnote, I did find out that all motor cars had been confiscated when the February, 1917 revolution had begun.
*Professor Richard B. Spence has a new book out entitled Wall Street And The Russian Revolution, 1905-1925 published by the same publishing house that published your Prolonging The Agony. I have a copy of it as well and where the late Professor Anthony Sutton’s book Wall Street And The Bolshevik Revolution leaves off, Professor Spence’s new book not only clarifies it but also connects the dots.
*In Prolonging The Agony, can you clarify the number of individuals by country who attended the Allied conference on 29 January 1917- 21 February 1917. This is the one led by Milner. Some accounts have 40 or more people attending. Please clarify.
Thanks for your time and outstanding information in both books.

Fascinating and well-researched article. I really enjoyed it
The first World War was against the Boers 1899 – 1902 also by the British Zionists.
Here is a list of the countries which fought against the Boers –
America (horses and thousands of volunteering men)
India 18 200
Africans 30 – 40 000
Cape Dutch Afrikaner 30 333
Germany also arived but returned when they realized who the British wanted them to War against.
The reason this is suppressed as a World War is if it is recognized then the Boer identity,and country must be recognized. The Boers existence are are hidden and suppressed for the resources. Boers are not Afrikaners, on this page http://www.faze.co.za is an explanation.
