Who was he: Winston Churchill was born at Blenheim Palace, Woodstock, Oxfordshire, on the 30th of November 1874. Churchill was the child of Randolph Churchill, a British aristocrat and conservative politician, and Jennie Jerome. He was to rise to become Britain's prime minister twice, the first time as a "war" prime minister overseeing Britain's efforts during the Second World War, the second in 1951. Churchill is a beloved figure in Britain, receiving adulation from the mainstream press and biographers – even now, years after his death.
From the point of view of Directed (Conspiratorial) History, there are numerous questions about Winston Churchill that go beyond the mythology that now surrounds him. He was a depressive man who reveled in chaos and welcomed war, especially World War II. Churchill proclaimed loudly his hatred of Hitler and Germany and there is no doubt he kept the war alive when Hitler sought several times to end it.
Whether or not Churchill was directly aware of Money Power, his enthusiastic participation in World War II helped create the post-war sociopolitical environment that has included a gradual globalization under the control of Money Power. The legacy of Churchill is that he helped pave the way for a globalist new world order. Whether he would have approved or not is a question that cannot now be answered. But Churchill moved in the highest circles of the Power Elite conspiracy and was doubtless aware of its internationalist ambitions and the ruthlessness of its strategies.
Background: Born into the aristocracy, Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill received his young adult training at the military academy of Sandhurst. After Sandhurst, Churchill joined the Fourth Hussars in 1895 and participated in fighting on the Indian northwest frontier; also the battle of Omdurman in the Sudan in 1898. Churchill gave reports to the Daily Telegraph, which generated his initial literary career.
Leaving the army in 1899, Churchill joined the Morning Post and reported from Africa on the Boer War. At age 26, he began his parliamentary career, running successfully for office as the conservative MP of Oldham in 1900. Despite being conservative, Churchill gradually came to believe in governmental social activism and joined the Liberal Party. In 1904 Churchill first met Clementine Hozier, whom he later married after meeting her again in 1908. Churchill won reelection in 1906. In 1908, he joined the Liberal government's cabinet as president of the Board of Trade.
In 1910, following the General Election, Churchill became home secretary, and then in 1911 he was appointed First Lord of the Admirality. During World War I, Churchill became minister of munitions. In 1922, after the war, he joined the Conservative Party again. This proved to be a mistake, as Churchill grew to be regarded as violently right wing by the electorate, which short-circuited his political career.
Out of power, Churchill became a close watcher of the world scene and Hitler's rise. He spoke out against both Germany and Hitler. His warnings proved prophetic and on May 10th, 1940 King George VI sent for Churchill and appointed him prime minister.
Winston Churchill was most successful as a wartime prime minister and it was a shock when directly after the war, in the 1945 General Election, the country elected a Labor government and Churchill lost his job. He was to be prime minister one more time in 1951, from age 77 to 80. Winston Churchill died on January 24, 1965 at 89 years of age.
