I never had any idea that there was another story or explanation. I had no clue that there was even a sister boat. Very recently someone told me to look into it for them, so I did. Here is the facts of what I discovered. In 1902, the White Star Line company, who owned the Titanic and many other ships, was bought by IMM, owned by none other than J.P. Morgan.
Second, Titanic had an almost identical sister ship, older, called The Olympic.
To the untrained eye, they look identical, until you take a closer look. Let’s look at the events that led up to the event in question. On September 20th, 1911 the Olympic collided with the HMS Hawke just off the coast of the Isle of Wight. Five voyages into her career, under the command of Captain E.J. Smith, Olympic suffered a collision with British naval cruiser HMS Hawke. Running parallel in the Solent Straight the HMS Hawke suddenly veered into the side of Olympic, sucked in by the ship’s huge propellors. The damage left the Hawke’s bow completely crushed and two of Olympic’s compartments flooded. Here is a video of what happened.
Due to the fact it was a British naval ship, the admiralty investigated and unsurprisingly they found the Olympic to be at fault. The legal costs and high costs of repairing the badly damaged ship left the ship maker in a precarious situation. It was expected to take 2 weeks to repair the damage to the ship but it ended up taking over seven weeks, indicating just how severe the damage was.
If you look at where the boat hit the Olympic, you can tell the damage is identical to the damage that was on the Titanic on April 12th. This is the first thing that really made me look even closer. This incident caused many problems for the ship’s owners, White Star Line. This meant that the Olympic would have to be taken out of service while they repaired it but this also meant that the maiden voyage of Titanic had to be pushed back from March 20th to April 10th. At this time, White Star Line had legal bills to pay and now the cost of repairing the Olympic. So this puts them in quite the conundrum. The legal bills stemming from the crash and the Olympic being considered “at fault”, meant that the insurance company wouldn’t pay.
Now they admitted taking things from the Titanic to repair the Olympic, if you see pictures of the supposed Olympic the interior was identical. The only difference is 1 had carpet and. 1 had tile flooring, which is easy to correct.
Oxford author Robin Gardiner has released a new book that he says proves it is a sister ship that sits at the bottom of the North Atlantic, not the Titanic. “It was collusion, conspiracy and cover-up on an unprecedented scale. The evidence is overwhelming; eyewitnesses themselves describe running along Titanic’s decks, but where they said there were promenades, there should have been cabins. And while survivors on B Deck described seeing lifeboats being lowered from above, there’s no way they would have seen that on Titanic – only on the ship Olympic. You only have to look at the ships’ specifications to see the ‘Titanic’ passengers were actually aboard Olympic.”
A man in Australia sent a letter to the Northern Star newspaper on July 31st, 1996, claiming his son had discussions with Paddy Fenton, one of the seamen on the ship, he was told according to the letter, “When the surviving crew got to port they were all taken aside and met by two men, one in a high position in the company, the other man was in a very high position in the Government. The Government man read the crew the “Official Secrets Act’ explaining that if they told of the real reason for the sinking, or the rumours of an insurance scam, they would serve a minimum of 20 years in jail and would never get a job when they got out.”
Britain was in a coal strike during the Titanic’s maiden voyage, fuel was in short supply, and they struggled to find firemen and greasers to work below deck. Only two didn’t refuse to sign up for the voyage across the Atlantic.
50 first class passengers who made reservations to go on the Titanic had cancelled at the last minute including JP Morgan, who claimed that he was looking after his sick wife but he was seen in France soon after, like nothing was happening. JP Morgan also took bronze statues, of his, off the titanic soon before it sailed. J. Bruce Ismay’s wife Julia and their children used the same excuse of being ill but they were spotted on holiday in Wales.
Another extremely bizarre piece of this complex puzzle is the SS Californian, who amid a coal strike in Britain was full of coal, but no tickets were sold for people to get to Boston, even though the demand was there. Captain Stanley Lord acted very bizarrely during that the Titanic voyage. The ship came to a stop around the ice field on April 14th and on that night he slept fully clothed on a couch and ordered the engines to be kept on standby. Why would he do that if he was unaware of the plan?
Three of the messages sent to the Titanic, on that night, were from the Californian and it was mainly about its own position. They were addressed personally to Captain Smith. Captain Lord ordered a ten mile turn to the South of the normal point and it was going right into the ice field. Lookouts Fred Fleet and Reginald Lee said when they saw the iceberg they went to the crow’s nest. First Officer Murdoch reversed the engine of the ship, increasing the chances of collision and this was something he would have known. The turning circle of the titanic was 1,280 yards and stopping distance was around 850 yards, so the “wreck” is obviously preventable.
Lightholler claimed he stayed in his cabin till another officer came to get him. The bridge was only a few seconds walk from his cabin, which is where he should have gone at the first sign of trouble but he didn’t. Lightholler, on the ship, claimed to the inquiry that they spent an hour in the water, which is obviously a lie. Based on the documented sea temperature being below freezing, anyone would’ve froze to death within 5 minutes-10 tops.
Captain Smith’s officers acted like there was no emergency afoot on the ship. They were in full possession of the facts and they did nothing. Fred Fleet at the inquiry about what happened had a clearly guilty conscious and was very defensive and angsty. It should also be noted in 1965, Fred Fleet committed suicide. A number of survivors detailed how they saw a ship around 5 to 6 miles away but as the emergency was happening Smith didn’t try to get closer to the closest ship.
When the distress signals were sent out it could be seen from the Californian. When Captain Lord was made aware of it, he asked specifically what the colors were. Why would that matter? Unless he was told they would be a certain color. The Captain of the Samson, a ship illegally fishing in the area, stated as well that he had saw the distress signal rockets being fired.
Edith Russell, a survivor on the Titanic claimed that the officers told them “don’t worry, the Californian would pick you up, if you don’t come back for breakfast.”
Stanley Lord woke up his radio operator at around 5 in the morning on that fateful night but the Carpathia rescued the survivors. Others who testified to the inquiry said even in the darkest nights they could spot an iceberg up to 10 miles away. The guy tasked with leading the inquiry was John Bigham, 1st Viscount Mersey, President of the Board of Trade, a man who knew how to cover things up. The Board of Trade regulations about the amount of lifeboats on a ship and safety of ships generally, made the situation on the Titanic worse. The hearings were held in a place where the acoustics were so bad people could barely hear everything that was said.
Harald Sanderson, from Harland and Wolff, on a number of occasions kept saying the Olympic, instead of the Titanic. This didn’t just happen once, it happened repeatedly. He made the boats, he knew how to tell them a part. Captain Lord didn’t defend himself in the hearing, likely out of fear of implicating himself in the conspiracy that occurred. Though later in his life he tried to get the inquiry reopened and was unsuccessful. Lord Mersey accepted evidence against Stanley Lord that in normal circumstances would have been laughed out of court. This is not to stay Captain Lord was innocent or a good man, but it seems he was clearly sacrificed so as to not implicate other more important players in this conspiracy.
Then there is the suspicious fact that White Star Line ,shortly before the sailing of the Titanic, increased the insurance on the ship, which paid out $12.5 million. The families received $430 each for their dead family members, as if that would make up for it. I wonder what they would say now if they knew their family members were killed intentionally.
Another fact, there was a longitudinal bulkhead on the stern, which is not part of the Titanic. In 1986, the French National Oceanographic Institute looking at the wreck, looked for the name of the ship, and they saw two letters that had dropped off into the seabed, it was M and P.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, the real Titanic was destroyed in the 1930’s so that any and all evidence was wiped away, or so they thought. They are forgetting about all the original pictures of the boats and the wreck at the bottom of the sea. They are forgetting about all the well documented eye witness reports, and the fact, which is well documented, the Olympic was used in ALL Titanic advertising.
Based on all the evidence, there is no doubt in my mind that the Titanic sinking was in fact faked, for the insurance money, so they can recoup their losses from the Olympic. Sad thing is I am not surprised that the corruption started this far back. Powerful people do sinister things. It is not a conspiracy theory if it is true. When anyone labels ANYTHING a conspiracy theory, it is much more likely to be true.
As a matter of fact, Conspiracy theory was made up by the FBI to prevent people from asking them questions about JFK….the more you know!
