    The Fantastic Fraud of the French Revolution

    The storming of the Bastille is likewise absurd. They admit the Bastille contained only seven inmates
    at the time, so why would rioters make the effort to storm it?
    And how's this for a coincidence? The Marquis de Sade had been the eighth inmate ten days earlier,
    but he had just been transferred out. Sounds like someone knew what was going to happen before it
    happened. Plus, we are told 25,000 Royal troops were already in the vicinity of Paris at the time, so it
    doesn't sound like a very good time to riot. Where were these troops during the storming of the
    Bastille? Sounds like someone paid them to stand down. Wikipedia admits,
    The Royal troops did nothing to stop the spreading of social chaos in Paris during those days.
    Curious, n'est-ce pas? By July 14th, Paris was under the control of the Bourgeois Militia (later called
    the National Guard). Where did they come from? And why had the Royal troops given them the city
    without a fight? Within hours this Militia was given arms by the Hôtel des Invalides, which just
    happened to be storing 30,000 unguarded muskets. And then we get this stunner concerning the
    The cost of maintaining a garrisoned medieval fortress for so limited a purpose, had led to a
    decision being taken to replace it with an open public space,[5] shortly before the disturbances began.
    Say what? For the full effect, you may wish to read that several hundred times, hitting yourself on the
    head all the while. According to my understanding of the English language, that means that at the time
    of the “storming” the Bastille was an open public space. So the rioters actually stormed an open public
    place. We are told they stormed it to capture 250 barrels of gunpowder that the commandant at the
    Invalides had taken the precaution of moving over there. But wait, am I to understand that the
    commandant moved 250 barrels of gunpowder to an open public space for safekeeping?
    To explain that, they change the story. In the next paragraph, the Bastille is no longer an open public
    space. Instead, it is being guarded by 82 invalides and 32 grenadiers. Really? So the “seven old
    men”—forgers and lunatics—incarcerated at the Bastille are being guarded by 114 soldiers? Seems
    like a high guard-to-inmate ratio, doesn't it? I will be told, “No, they were guarding the powder”. But I
    don't understand why the powder was there, or why it wasn't already in the possession of the Royal
    troops. This whole story shouldn't fool a ten-year-old, but somehow it has fooled the entire world for 220 years.
    Plus, if the rioters didn't have the gunpowder yet, how did they storm anything? It should have been
    pretty difficult to storm a crenellated castle with empty muskets. As it turns out, nothing was stormed.
    Even according to the mainstream story, the troops inside simply opened the gates after a parley. This
    part of the story also makes no sense, since although no one was guaranteed safe escort, the Governor
    de Launay allegedly opened the gates anyway and surrendered. We are told he did this because he was
    worried about food and water. After four hours? This giant fortress was stocked with 250 barrels of
    gunpowder. . . and enough food to last four hours? We are told that de Launay and mayor Flesselles
    were killed that day, but I don't tend to believe it.
    Also unbelievable is the response from the King the next day, which was. . . nothing. Troops were
    ordered to disperse to the country and Paris was given to the mob. Or, it was given to Lafayette, who
    became commander of the National Guard. That curious, wouldn't you say? Lafayette, who had been
    living at Versailles just few years earlier, was now commander of the Revolutionaries? Can you say
    “manufactured opposition”? Within days, the King himself was wearing a tricolor cockade (hat).
    We see the same thing with the Jacobins, who are credited with overthrowing the monarchy. But they
    were also formed at Versailles and included Bourbons like the Duc d'Orleans. So again, something
    doesn't add up. We have seen both the Freemasons (Lafayette) and the Jacobins forming out of
    Versailles, the palace of the King. It only adds up once you realize the Jacobins were another front for
    the capitalists, and they had duped these top aristocrats like Orleans by promising him the crown once
    Louis was gone. They needed Orleans when it came time to order the Royal troops to stand down.
    Orleans may have accomplished that on his own authority. We will look more closely at Orleans later.
    The Revolution was hatched out of Versailles, under the very nose of the King, and it could be done
    that way because the bankers lived in Versailles with Louis. By then, the bankers had infested every
    building in France, including Versailles. As now, you couldn't go to the toilet without paying some
    banker a fee. Versailles wasn't taken in the Revolution; it had been taken long before.
