Churchill was the son of King Edward VII "Edward the Caresser,"
and thus a secret agent for the British monarchy!!
British Secret Service agent Winston Churchill ranted and raved at
fellow spies and "dictators" Hitler and Stalin, he himself
was the living embodiment of the iron monarchical system. There is
no such person as a "constitutional" monarch. The world
is not big enough for a monarchy and a republic to coexist. The 3
pillars of monarchy are: standing armies, monopolies and spies!!
peacetime, spies are generally called "secret agents." If
spies are unmasked during peacetime, they are generally imprisoned
or exchanged for another spy.
wartime, despicable spies
are not considered prisoners-of-war and can be shot or hanged.
spies began arriving in the Tabernacle of David as early as 1638.
Sir George Downing–of Downing
Street fame–was one such spy or secret agent:
first business of a spy must be to deceive his fellow men as to his
real personality and purpose. To this end he will assume a disguise,
which he will try to make as inoffensive and as inconspicuous as possible;
the more commonplace it is, the less likely will it be to suggest
any thought of deception. That is one reason why clerical garb has,
from of old, been so popular among spies. It has, of course, other
advantages to recommend it.
In 1809, the French general Philippe Henri, comte de Grimoard wrote,
"the best spies are often women and priests, who usually excite
less suspicion that other people." (Lüdecke, Behind
the Scenes of Espionage, pp. 10-11).

the summer of 1871, Leonard Jerome rented a small cottage on the Isle
of Wight. He was joined by his wife and daughters Clara, Jennie and
Leonie. That was when the 3 girls were first introduced to Albert,
Prince of Wales:
summer I paid a first visit to Cowes. In those days it was delightfully
small and peaceful. No glorified villas, no esplanade or pier, no
bands or "Negro minstrels," no motors or crowded tourist
steamers–"no nothing," as the children say. The Royal
Yacht Squadron Club lawn did not resemble a perpetual garden party,
or the roadstead a perpetual regatta. Yachts went in and out without
fear of losing their moorings, and most of them belonged to the Royal
Yacht Squadron. People all seemed to know one another. The Prince
and Princess of Wales and many foreign royalties could walk about
and amuse themselves without being photographed or mobbed, and many
were the gay little expeditions to Shanklin Bay, Freshwater, or Beaulieu,
where they threw off all ceremony and enjoyed themselves like ordinary
mortals. ("Lady" Randolph Churchill, Reminiscences.

The Prince was
already known as a raconteur and playboy. When he became king in 1901
he was called Edward the Caresser:
it was, of course, the trio of American girls inside the house who
were much more interesting than the house itself. Leonie was not often
there as she had to complete her studies at a boarding school in Wiesbaden,
Germany, and so, by the third summer, it was Clara and Jennie who
had established themselves at Cowes as an intriguing and beautiful
pair. They saw nothing out of the ordinary in being asked to all the
smartest parties and in performing piano duets after dinner, in their
Worth gowns, with true professionalism and sparkle. The one fair and
fey, the other dark and fiery, both concentrated on playing as magnificently
as their arduous practice sessions had prepared them for. Few English
girls could come near them in ability or confidence. (Sebra, American
Jennie, p. 34).

he was Chancellor of the Exchequer, Speaker of the House

Forming this new
Translantic alliance was not cheap. Lord Randolph demaned and received
a princely sum for adoping the son of the Prince of Wales:
There were however
two difficulties. First, Leonard Jerome, true to the Duke's descriptions
of the hazards of his occupation, was in a speculative downturn.
He had been badly mauled by the plunge of the New York stock exchange
of that year (1873). Second, he claimed to hold advanced New World
ideas about the financial rights of married women. (This was before
the British Married Women's Property Act of 1882 gave women any
property rights against their husbands.) The Duke assumed that whatever
settlement could be obtained would be under the exclusive control
of his son. Jerome thought it should be settled on his daughter.
This led to a good deal of haggling which went on into the spring
of 1874. Eventually a compromise was reached, by which Jerome settled
a sum of £50,000 (approximately £2.5 million at present values),
producing an income of £2,000 a year, with a half of both capital
and income belonging, to the husband and a half to the wife. The
Duke settled another £I,I00 a year for life on Randolph which gave
the couple the equivalent of a present-day income of a little more
than £150,000 a year, a sum which guaranteed that they would live
constantly above their income and be always in debt. (Jenkins, Churchill:
A Hagiography, pp. 6-7).
reason for recommending Lord Randolph as a surrogate father was the
fact that he had syphilis and could not father children.
Lord Randolph had a timely death in 1895, and he left no
money in his will to his adopted children Winston and Jack.
Churchill grew up to look like his real father!!
of miracles, Winston grew up to look like his father. His father was
not known to be an academic and Winston was a DUNCE in school. Contrary
to the ravings of another dunce named Charles Darwin, biological offspring
always look like their parents.

she encouraged the "artistic" side of his nature:
his mother, Prince Albert Victor was congenitally deaf, a condition
whose effects were aggravated by his poor education. Many regarded
the Prince as backward. Being deaf herself, Alexandra could understand
his problems, and she came to realise that he was of an artistic,
rather than an academic, bent. Like other disabled people he found
it easier to express himself in art than in the classroom.

though Churchill was the son of the Prince of Wales, this did not automatically
provide an entrée to the highest echelon of the government. Church was
a complete ass in school. When he was growing up in Ireland, he fell
off his donkey and suffered a concussion of the "brain" but
that does not account for his stupidity:
took me three tries to pass into Sandhurst. There were five subjects,
of which Mathematics, Latin and English were obligatory, and I chose
in addition French and Chemistry. In this hand I held only a pair
of Kings-English and Chemistry. Nothing less than three would open
the jackpot. I had to find another useful card. Latin I could not
learn. I had a rooted prejudice which seemed to dose my mind against
it. Two thousand marks were given for Latin. I might perhaps get 400!
French was interesting but rather tricky, and difficult to learn in
England. So there remained only Mathematics. After the first Examination
was over, when one surveyed the battlefield, it was evident that the
war could not be won without another army being brought into the line.
Mathematics was the only resource available. I turned to them-I turned
on them-in desperation. All my life from time to time I have had to
get up disagreeable subjects at short notice, but I consider my triumph,
moral and technical, was in learning Mathematics in six months. At
the first of these three ordeals I got no more than 500 marks out
of 2,500 for Mathematics. At the second I got nearly 2,000. I owe
this achievement not only to my own "back-to-the-wall' resolution-for
which no credit is too great; but to the very kindly interest taken
in my case by a much respected Harrow master, Mr. C. H. P. Mayo. He
convinced me that Mathematics was not a hopeless bog of nonsense,
and that there were meanings and rhythms behind the comical hieroglyphics;
and that I was not incapable of catching glimpses of some of these.

wanted nothing to do with him:
23 August, Churchill arrived with his squadron at Kitchener's forward
base at Wadi Hamed, a little to the south of Wadi Habeshi, where in
1885 the gunboat Safia had fought a duel with dervish guns.
The long journey from Cairo had not been a happy one for the 21st
Lancers. Confined to railway trucks for almost two continuous weeks,
the regiment's horses–mostly small Syrian chargers–had
lost condition, and more than fifty had to be destroyed. One man had
already died from heat exhaustion, and three others had been evacuated.
On a personal level, Churchill found himself treated as an outsider
by the other officers, who disdained his status as a freelance journalist,
and regarded him as little more than a 'spy.' (Asher, Khartoum:
the Ultimate Imperial Adventure, p. 367).

world did come very close to war at that time:
October 1898 rumours were rife in Paris: the French Mediterranean
Fleet had slipped past Gibraltar, all lights darkened and keeping
as close as was safe to the African shore; reservists were being secretly
mobilized, emergency hospitals set up and stores ordered. No one knew
truth from rumour, but one thing was clear: war was very near. Cherbourg
and Brest were in turmoil; stores, ammunition, food, wine and barracks
were all being hastily commandeered, churches and halls taken over
and civilian traffic jostled off the main roads and harbour anchorages.
Nor was the French Navy alone in preparing for war. The army also
was alerting its training cadres, ready for a vast flood of conscripts,
and the regular army was being placed on a war footing. The public
also was stirred to a deep and resentful bitterness by a vitriolic
press: 'Le duel sans merci est commencé,' wrote La Patrie.
'France's honour is at stake, there can be no surrender,' was the
similar refrain from Le Figaro. (Wright, Conflict on
the Nile, p.1).
French did withdraw from Fashoda, but a joint occupancy over Sudan,
called the Anglo-Egyptian Condominium was signed in 1899. The British
did not declare war on France at that time because they were waiting
to arm Germany and establish a "special relationship" with
the United States.
