For forty years, the world was fooled by the Piltdown Man, a hoax which the anthropologists told us was the missing link to prove evolution. The fraud was exposed in 1953 and ENCYCLOPAEDiA BRITANNICA now describes the Piltdown Man under the heading “Frauds.”
For nearly sixty years, the American public believed that the ship Lusitania was merely a peaceful passenger ship when it was torpedoed by a German submarine in 1915. Long-suppressed British documents finally revealed that the Lusitania was secretly loaded with ammunition and therefore a fair target for attack.
It took five years for the truth about the supposed surprise attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941 to surface, namely, that the United States had broken the Japanese top-secret codes, and that President Franklin Roosevelt read the decoded Japanese war message the even ing before the attack and said, “This means war!”
A new book called THE RESCUE OF THE ROMANOVS by Lieutenant Colonel Guy Richards of the Marine Corps Reserve now reveals in documented detail how, contrary to all history books, newspaper accounts, arid movies, Czar Nicholas and Czarina Alexandra of Imperial Russia and their five children were not murdered in July 1918, but instead escaped with the aid of British and American officials.
The evidence of this escape is provided in documents on file in the White House, known as the Chivers Dispatches, and in the British Foreign Office, known as the Lord Hardinge Letter.
The Chivers Dispatches are a series of weekly messages sent to Washington by the American officials who helped the Russian royal family to escape. The Lord Hardinge Letter was written by the British Permanent Under Secretary for Foreign Affairs to the King of England on June 3, 1919. It describes the escape route taken by the Czar and his family, who left Odessa on February 26, 1919 and arrived in Breslau, Poland on May 10, 1919.
Apparently, the escape story was suppressed to protect the Russian royal family from Soviet assassination squads who were subsequently able to murder Leon Trotsky in Mexico City and Soviet defector General Krivitsky in the Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, D.C.
Abraham Lincoln said that “you can’t fool all of the people all the time.” But sometimes it takes many decades for the truth to catch up with the errors in the history books.
Special commendation is due to ace reporter and feature writer Guy Richards for his ten-year search for the truth about the Czar and his family. His Marine combat experience in the South Paci ic gave him the vigor and perseverance necessary to penetrate the layers of official fog concealing the parts played by the White House and the British Foreign Office in rescuing the Romanovs from certain assassination.
