    On reason #4, I would add that, by April 1912, John Jacob Astor was one of the last financier still supporting Nikola Tesla, against J.P. Morgan,s will.

    You might want to add. That’s their was a coal strike but ismay ordered the californion to have the coal. And it left with no passengers just blankets and life jackets and that was before the distress calls was made

    • The List Love says:

      Brilliant point. We had read that but completely forgot to add it in. It adds to the conspiracy that RMS Titanic’s position was confused, and that the Californian was originally supposed to be the rescue ship and not RMS Carpathia, which unfortunately arrived hours later when it was too late.

    All of this can be debunked by one fact: the White Star Line’s insurance policy on the Titanic. It was insured for $5,000,000 (not $12,000,000 as stated in this article) however, it cost more than $7.5 million each to build the Olympic and the Titanic. In addition, White Star Line had to pay back $664,000 to the passenger’s families due to loss of life and personal belongings. Not to mention the expenses the company shelled out to hire various cable boats and crews to retrieve the bodies.

    With that in perspective, collecting $5,000,000 on a ship that cost $7,500,000 to build, plus $664,000 in lawsuits and thousands more for body retrievals left the company with a deficit of over $3,000,000 in losses. That doesn’t sound like a deliberate sinking or an insurance scam.

    • Brilliant. We love the conspiracy being debunked. Not everyone knows the facts and figures, and the conspiracy is just a conspiracy, and the sources really do back your claims.

      Are we right in believing that the White Star Line actually charged the families for the retrieval of their loved ones’ bodies, though? Which is they reason why many of the bodies were never recovered from the ocean.

      • Chris says:

        Actually, the White Star Line had financed the body retrievals (about £300 a day) and 150 funerals for those buried in the Halifax cemeteries (another 166 were buried at sea). I believe the reason why so few bodies were retrieved from the sea, was due to a rather large storm that struck the area shortly after the initial chartered ships had headed back to port for more supplies. This had scattered those who were wearing a life vest for miles. In fact, another White Star Line cruise ship, the Oceanic, had reported spotting three bodies adrift in Lifeboat A about a month after the sinking.

        Another reason for so few retrieved victims, was that several hundred crew members and passengers were undoubtedly trapped in the ship as she went down. Sadly, the remains of those who were not wearing a life vest either sank to the bottom or drifted away below the sea level.

        • This is all very interesting! I had heard about the White Star Line discovering three bodies much later. Thank you so much for sharing this fantastic knowledge with us.

        the minuscule amounts for insurance are nothing compared to world domination of the energy and financial sectors.
        astor funded tesla who had to be stopped,astor hated the federal reserve along with guggenheim and strauss.
        the insurance portion is just a distraction. ask yourself what is the situation of the world with oil, and the federal reserve central bank system. these are the foundations of the world that may not have happened if this wreck had not occurred.

          i always wondered how could the captain commit suicide even if he was a mason ? i finally figured it out . he did not plan on dying, no sane person would ! he was assured another ship would pick him up,he saw it 10 miles off which was not far ,easy to see. he knew his lifeboat was only minutes away, how could they not come to pick them up. he didn’t know he was slated to die along with the big guns. but the wrong color flares were used, by who? somehow they pulled it off, and the rescue boat kept going. morgan and the bankers cabal win we lose.
