A Study in Failure
- 1874 - Born Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill
- 1895 - "Whiney" struggled in school but eventually graduated from the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst. This explains much of his personality because he was a military genius in his own mind. He also had a speech impediment that made him unpleasant to listen to that he overcame by hard work.
- Norwich North MP Dr Ian Gibson says Churchill himself acknowledged his depressive periods: "He does record that he has bad days and that he was in a straitjacket,"...
Churchill told Lord Moran:"When I was young the light faded out of the picture. I did my work. I sat in the House of Commons, but black depression settled on me." His nickname for his recurring depression he called "Black Dog."
Brendan Bracken said of Churchill in the years before WWII "he kept saying 'I am finished.' He said that about twice a day...Why, he told me he prays for death every day."
- 1896-1899 - Churchill was a military observer in India and participated as war correspondent in the second Anglo-Boer war between Britain and Afrikaners in South Africa.
- 1900 - Elected MP in the House of Commons which he continued in from 1900 to 1922 and from 1924 to 1964. Churchill was a political opportunist with no moral compass or principles. Thus he was distrusted and disliked by almost every British politician up to 1939. In spite of all his patriotic appeals for national unity, Churchill was the most truculent and bitter political swashbuckler of his day.
- 1908-1910 - Appointed President of the Board of Trade he pursued radical socialist reforms in conjunction with David Lloyd George, the new Chancellor of the Exchequer. Lloyd George was the man responsible for turning Britain into a floating Albania with a wrecked socialist economy and Marxist politics.
- The Spectator on Churchill in 1911: "We cannot detect in his career any principles or even any constant outlook upon public affairs; his ear is always to the ground; he is the true demagogue." Lloyd George in this period compared Churchill to "a chauffeur who apparently is perfectly sane and drives with great skill for months, then suddenly takes you over a precipice."
- 1911 - Churchill appointed First Lord of the Admiralty, a post he held into
WWI when he earned the title "Butcher of Gallipoli" for being the architect
of the disastrous Gallipoli campaign on the Dardanelles.
This was his major achievement in WWI and demonstrates his abysmal stupidity.
This disgrace lead to his being eventually dropped from the government. In 1915 he engineered
the U-boat sinking of the Lusitania by packing it illegally with
munitions and removing its escort at a critical moment. He hoped this would
lure the U.S. into the war but that also failed. This was a secret project
and the truth did not come out until well after Churchill's death so he avoided
- After the war concerning uprisings in the British mandated territories of the former Ottoman Empire, Churchill wrote:
I am strongly in favour of using poisoned gas against uncivilized tribes.
- Based on a 1920 Churchill essay "Zionism versus Bolshevism": "Churchill ranted that Jews were behind world revolutions everywhere. Jews [were] denizens of the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America." ("Churchill for Dummies," by Michael Lind, The Spectator, 24 April 2004.) Churchill wrote, "And it may well be that this same astounding race may at the present time be in the actual process of producing another system of morals and philosophy, as malevolent as Christianity was benevolent, which, if not arrested would shatter irretrievably all that Christianity has rendered possible. It would almost seem as if the gospel of Christ and the gospel of Antichrist were destined to originate among the same people..."
- 1926 - During the General Strike of 1926, Churchill was reported to have suggested that machine guns be used on the striking miners.
- Between the wars he changed parties yet again, as he said: "Anyone can rat [change parties], but it takes a certain ingenuity to re-rat." He had started as a Conservative, went Liberal and then back to Conservative as opportunities changed.
- "It is not possible to form a just judgment of a public figure who has attained the enormous dimensions of Adolf Hitler until his life work as a whole is before us. Although no subsequent political action can condone wrong deeds, history is replete with examples of men who have risen to power by employing stern, grim, and even frightful methods, but who, nevertheless, when their life is revealed as a whole, have been regarded as great figures whose lives have enriched the story of mankind. So may it be with Hitler. It is enough to say that both possibilities are open at the present moment. ("Great Contemporaries," a Churchill essay which first appeared in The Strand magazine in November 1935)"
- "One may dislike Hitler's system and yet admire his patriotic achievement. If our country were defeated, I hope we should find a champion as indomitable to restore our courage and lead us back to our place among the nations."
- 1938 Churchill said, "It would be a dangerous folly for the British people to underrate the enduring position in world history which Mussolini will hold; or the amazing qualities of courage, comprehension, self-control and perseverance which he exemplifies."
- Late 1930s - Churchill had hated the Germans in WWI and now he found the meaning of his life - to hate Germans! Opposing Prime Minister Chamberlain's appeasement eventually lead to Churchill taking over 10 May 1940.
- 1943 - Churchill was at best indifferent and perhaps complicit in the Great Bengal famine of 1943 which took the lives of at least 2.5 million Bengalis.
- 1940-1945 "ARE WE BEASTS?", Churchill asked. Yes, he was. Mass Murderer The RAF at Churchill's direction under the policy of "area bombing" murdered one million German civilians - a bestiality and violation of the customs of war never before or after matched.
- 1945 - After the war, Mass Murderer
at Yalta, Churchill agreed to round up 2 million Russian nationals in Germany,
Italy and France to be forcibly deported to Russia for execution (See OPERATION
KEELHAUL by Julius Epstein, 1973; THE SECRET BETRAYAL by N. Tolstoy, 1978;
THE LAST SECRET by N. Bethall, 1974). Among other things, this was a violation
of the Geneva Convention.
- 1945, July 27 - After the end of the war in Europe, actually during the Potsdam Conference, Churchill was heavily defeated at election by Clement Attlee who became the Prime Minister.
- 1948-1952 Churchill published his histories of WWII which rather surprisingly demonstrated that he had won the war all by himself.
- Churchill again became ineffective Prime Minister 1951-1955.
- 1965 - Death.
- Because he had no principles, Churchill leaves no message and no vision for the future. Churchill had no vision for the future, only a tenacious defense of the past which he failed.
- Boothby relates how some years after the war Churchill said that the final verdict of history would take into account the political results of his actions during the war and added, "Judged by this standard, I am not sure that I shall be held to have done very well."
- The conclusion of the book BRITISH BULLDOG by Emrys Hughes - "Churchill's public career is actually and very colorfully epitomized in the title of the last volume of his war memoirs Triumph and Tragedy (1953). It is scarcely an exaggeration to state that every political triumph of Winston Churchill has been a tragedy for his country, the world, or both. And the greatest tragedy was, of course, that which followed his greatest triumph, after he had induced the British people to make unbelievable sacrifices and to indulge in heroic feats of valor fighting a war that, Captain Grenfell and others hold, Britain should never have entered. That, after a victory over Fascism and Nazism, mankind should now be facing a much more menacing conflict, which will be fought with far more horrible instruments of destruction, is tragedy indeed for the world. That Britain, always wooed by Hitler and allowed by him to escape total destruction at Dunkirk and after, should now be facing literal extermination at the hands of Soviet leaders armed with hydrogen bombs is surely tragedy for Britain."
- "With his lack of principles and scruples, Churchill was involved in one way or another in nearly every disaster that befell the 20th century. Winston Churchill must be ranked with Karl Marx, Woodrow Wilson, Vladimir Lenin, Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Herbert Hoover and Franklin Roosevelt as one of the destroyers of the values and greatness of Western civilization." - Adam Young ("The Real Churchill," by Adam Young, Ludwig von Mises Institute)
World War II Leader
Churchill's reputation mostly rests on what happened in WWII because everyone admits he was a failure up to 1939.
In 1943 Churchill stopped Roosevelt from assassinating Free French leader Charles de Gaulle.
1944, summer, Churchill stopped Roosevelt's plan to turn France Marxist by
assisting de Gaulle's run to Paris where Communists armed by the American OSS were
running wild and about to consolidate control. As Paris goes, so goes France. De Gaulle arrived in time with his
army to save France, to FDR's severe chagrin.
1944 Christmas. Churchill prevented E.L.I.A.S. Soviet-supported Communist
forces in Greece from taking power. Roosevelt was so outraged by the frustration
of Stalin's conquest that he never communicated with Churchill for the rest
of his life.
Churchill presided over the dissolution of the British Empire
and demoted a country that was arguably the most powerful in the world to a second
or third-rate lapdog of America. He undid the 450 year English domination of the world.
Churchill made all the worst possible decisions in the war. Vice Fuhrer Rudolph Hess had
brought peace proposals from Hitler who thought it was a natural complementary alliance
for the British to rule the seas and Germany to rule the continent and mystically considered the British were also Aryans and true cousins of the Germans (Anglos and
Saxons came originally from the territory in Germany just below eastern Denmark.)
Churchill was to write after the war that he could have made peace with Hitler
at any time. If he had been smart he would have. Instead he sided with Roosevelt
to save, protect, and promote Soviet Communism - the worst, least moral,
and stupidest choice.
In 1940 Churchill introduced the idea of mass
murdering innocent civilians by aerial bombing - sheer barbarism that
had not existed in Europe for 20 centuries. After three months Hitler was forced
to reciprocate. Churchill believed that Americans would be so outraged by the bombing of English cities that they would rush to enter the war at his side. It was just another of his miscalculations as, in fact, America yawned at the destruction of England. But the originator of this evil policy was Churchill which makes him
a war criminal and prior to 1942, after Stalin, the second biggest mass murderer and second
most evil man in the history of the world. Even now Churchill
is the 5th most prolific murderer in history only behind,
in order: Mao, Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot. Arguably Churchill
is the fifth most evil man that ever lived.
Bloody Winston Churchill should have been tried and executed in 1945 for crimes against humanity.
