The Importance And Significance of Rasputin And His Murder
Rixon Stewart – December 5, 2004
Sometimes critical turning points in history are overlooked; pivotal moments are ignored or simply forgotten. But every now and then a web of deceit is deliberately woven around an event. Leaving its true significance concealed so that future generations remember it only as a piece of insignificant trivia, or maybe an item of lurid scandal, rather than a momentous historical episode.
One such example is the life and more particularly the death of Gregory Rasputin. The story of his poisoning, of how he was then shot after the poison failed to take effect, and of how he finally met his end in the waters of an icy Neva River has become legend.
According to popular myth Rasputin was a mysterious somewhat dubious man, infamous for drunken debauchery, when he took advantage of the Tsarina’s gullibility and exploited her vulnerability over her son’s ill health.
The young Tsarevich was a haemophiliac and during his episodes of bleeding Rasputin seemed, inexplicably, to be able to stop the boy haemorrhaging. It had the young Tsarevich’s doctors at a loss but earned Rasputin the Tsarina’s loyalty and devotion. It also won him influence in Russia’s imperial court. So much so that by 1916, Rasputin, a lowly born peasant held an unprecedented sway over the Russia’s ruling Romanov dynasty.
Since then his name has almost become a byword for mystery and debauchery but Rasputin’s role in the events leading up to the Russian revolution remains essentially obscured. In effect a legend has grown up around the man but the reality may be far more intriguing than the popular myth.
For Rasputin’s murder may have set the stage for some of the most significant events of the 20th century and ultimately resulted, indirectly, in the deaths of many millions more.
Until recently, the accepted version of events was that Count Felix Yusopov and three accomplices murdered Rasputin in the basement of Yusopov’s Palace in St Petersburg, late one night.
After being invited to the Moika Palace, ostensibly to meet Princess Yusopov, Rasputin was led to a basement room that had been especially prepared for the occasion. While upstairs the other conspirators played a phonograph of ‘Yankee Doodle Dandle’ and pretended to have a party, as they waited to dispose of his corpse.
First Prince Yusopov fed Rasputin cakes and Madeira laced with cyanide, which appeared to have no perceptible effect. Then, after consulting with his fellow conspirators upstairs, Prince Yussopov returned to the basement and shot Rasputin in the back, aiming for his heart. But as Yussopov leaned over to examine the apparently lifeless corpse, Rasputin suddenly revived and grabbed the horrified Prince by the throat. Struggling free, the terrified Prince ran off while a wounded Rasputin made his way out of the palace, swearing that he would tell the Tsarina of Yussopov’s murderous duplicity. On his way out via a side courtyard more shots rang out as one of Yussopov’s accomplices, Vladimir Purishkevich, shot Rasputin again, this time hitting him in the back of the head.
However, that was not the end of it. For although Yussopov and his accomplices spoke of two shots hitting Rasputin, photos from the 1916 autopsy reveal a third bullet wound, fired at close range to the forehead.
At the time two British intelligence officers, Oswald Raynor (1) and John Scales, were stationed in St Petersburg at the nearby Hotel Astoria. Raynor had been a close friend of Yussopov’s at Oxford and there are strong indications that he was with Prince Yussopov’s accomplices monitoring events; while downstairs Prince Yussopov himself was pouring Rasputin cyanide laced Madeira.
According to Richard Cullen, a retired Scotland Yard commander who has been studying the case with Andrew Cook, an intelligence historian, British intelligence even had a code word for Rasputin. With charecteristic cynicism they referred to him as “Dark Forces” and it was almost certain that Oswald Raynor delivered the third and final shot to Rasputin’s head.
"I am 99.9 per cent certain of this," said Mr Cullen in a recent interview. "There is a fair weight of evidence to show that Rayner was the man. We have conclusive proof that the previously accepted versions of events are fabrications."(2)
Indeed the presence of British Intelligence was crucial to the whole operation. Had they not been there, Yusopov and his accomplices may well have lost their nerve. As it was though, they completed their task under the direction of Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service (S.I.S.), the forerunner of today’s MI5 and MI6.
Despite claims that British intelligence wanted to get rid of Rasputin because he was urging that Russia make peace with Germany, his murder was probably part of a longer term and altogether more sinister agenda.
Prince Yuspov was probably first spotted a few years previously while he was at Oxford University, which like Cambridge had become a fertile recruiting ground for British Intelligence. Not only was Prince Yusopov the second richest man in Russia, after the Tsar, he was also close to Russia’s imperial family and as such would have been viewed as a potential asset to be groomed for later use. Future generations of spies, such as Kim Philby, Guy Burgess and Anthony Blunt, were all recruited while studying at Cambridge. No matter that all were to turn double agents, as we shall see, at the very highest level there is little to distinguish those who are working for ‘communism’ and those who work for ‘capitalism’.
Moreover, like Blunt, Burgess and Philby and at least one of his co-conspirators, Grand Duke Dimitri Pavolovich, Prince Yusopov was also a homosexual. This was probably what led him into the thrall of the British Intelligence community in the first place, where homosexuality is still something of a recruitment trademark.
In fact an examination of the role later played by Anthony Blunt reveals surprising parallels with Prince Yusopov. Both men were related to royalty. Both were homosexuals and both were associated with lavish art collections. The Yusopov’s were avid collectors and the family’s art and antique collection was one of the most prized in Europe. While Anthony Blunt was distantly related to the monarch and official keeper of the royal family’s art collection; a position he held even after he was exposed as a traitor, having betrayed British secrets to the Soviet Union in the 40’s and early 1950’s.
But as already noted, at the highest levels there is little to distinguish those who work for ‘capitalism’ and those who labour for ‘communism’. Despite the different names and apparent ideological differences, they both serve the same overriding agenda.
Amazingly however, it was not the gunshot wounds that finally finished Rasputin. The 1916 autopsy, the results of which were reviewed and verified in 1990, reveal that Rasputin did not actually die at Yusopov’s Moiko Palace.
According to Professor Sharov, Russia’s foremost pathologist, who carried out the second investigation, the third shot had been fired point blank at Rasputin’s forehead – the hallmark of a professional execution style killing. Yet somehow he had survived even that. Water in his lungs indicates death by drowning, after his body was dumped in to the freezing waters of the Neva.
However this was not the first attempt on Rasputin’s life. In June 1914 – significantly perhaps, on the very same day that Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated in Sarajevo – a religious fanatic had stabbed Rasputin. Although he recovered, the attack left Rasputin an invalid for months afterwards.
So from where did Rasputin derive such phenomenal resilience? This writer would suggest that Rasputin possessed an abundance of what the Chinese call Chi or Life Force. It was this that enabled him to help the young Tsar when the Imperial family’s doctors were unable to do anything. For like any real healer, Rasputin was able to transmit this Life Force to the young Tsar and thus restore his ailing body.
Apart from explaining Rasputin’s resilience to apparently life-threatening injuries and his ability to heal, it also accounts for his notorious sexual appetite. For in its unrefined state, an abundance of Chi or Life Force also manifests as abundant sexual energy.
Thus reports of Rasputin’s unrestrained sexual appetite may well have an esoteric explanation. However this writer believes that while stories of his sexual endeavours contain a strong element of truth, they distract from the real significance of events surrounding his death.
The one man who may have prevented the 1917 Russian revolution.
When the Archimandrite Theophan first presented him to the Tsar and Tsarina in October 1905, Rasputin was introduced as one of the “Chosen”. And the Archimandrite may well have been right, although maybe not quite in the way he understood. For this writer believes that Rasputin was an initiate: a man chosen by higher powers to fulfil a task in this world. The fact that he didn’t accomplish this task is more a measure of the forces he opposed, and the task he undertook, than of the man himself.
For Rasputin had a destiny which few can envy or aspire to. Had he fulfilled it he would have changed the course of history, literally. For in the years prior to the revolution, Rasputin was quietly trying to persuade Russia’s imperial rulers to sue for peace with Germany.
Too many ordinary Russians were dying, he told them and the Tsarina, at least, was listening.
At the time Russia had suffered a series of colossal defeats at the hands of the Germany army. Coupled with food shortages and political agitation, a climate of political unrest was brewing that eventually led to the 1917 Russian revolution.
However, if Rasputin had been able to persuade the Romanov’s to make peace with Germany things might have been very different. Russian troops would have then returned home and political tensions might have eased to the point that there may not even have been a revolution. And the consequences of that would have been enormous.
Just think about that for a moment, because the entire face of the twentieth century would have been transformed. Not only would hostilities have been brought to a close on the eastern front, but also with troops and supplies from the Eastern Front transferred across Europe, Germany may even have secured victory on the Western Front.
Moreover, the ramifications stretch well beyond World War I and the 1917 Russian revolution. For example there may never have been a Second World War or a Chinese revolution. And along with Vietnam and Korea, the numerous other regional conflicts that marked the Cold War may never have happened.
The same applies to the founding of Israel and the various conflicts in the Middle East that followed that.
So if Rasputin had persuaded Russia’s imperial family to sue for peace much of what characterised the last century may never have happened. Which is why it was of the utmost importance for the Illuminati to stop him.
Had he succeeded, Rasputin would have struck at the very heart of their power. Which in essence, is founded on a principle so compelling and persuasive because it is so simple: turn brother against brother, one nation against another, sell them arms, then fuel their animosity and profit from the resulting conflict. In short, divide and rule.
Rasputin’s murder was only one part of a much bigger picture, however. As malign forces were manoeuvring around the one man who could have prevented a revolution, on the other side of the Atlantic some of Wall Street’s biggest financiers were preparing to fund Russia’s exiled revolutionaries. One such was Jacob Schiff, Chairman of the banking house Kuhn, Loeb & Co. and a minion of the Rothschilds. According to his grandson, John Schiff, in an admission to New York Journal American, Jacob Schiff “sank about 20 million dollars for the final triumph of Bolshevism”. (3)
Meanwhile President Woodrow Wilson provided the exiled Leon Trotsky with an American passport; thus allowing him to return to Russia unhindered aboard the S.S. Kristianiafjord on March 26, 1917.
The following month, Lenin too returned from exile in Germany via Stockholm. Travelling back on the train with him, it is said, were gold bars to finance the revolution and twenty men armed with Tommy guns’, then a ‘state of the art’ weapon. Also on board were Lenin’s travelling companions, mostly Jewish extremists many of whom were to play critical roles in the October revolution.
So step-by-step, one after another, the pieces were being put into place for a revolution that would transform Russia and ultimately the world, for the rest of the century.
While the past can be seen from a superficial viewpoint, history unfolds, with much deeper and often darker undercurrents concealed from view. In this case a hidden alliance between two entirely different power groups both of which, one would have thought, should have opposed the October revolution.
In reality though they didn’t: working hand in glove, they brought about the pivotal event of the last century. On the one hand, European blue bloods: in particular Britain’s Royal Family who were directly related to the Russian Imperial house did all they could to aid their overthrow. Not only did they refuse to help their Russian cousins when they most needed it. They were also the nominal heads of the Secret Intelligence Service, the organisation that orchestrated the killing of the one man who might have prevented the revolution.
While on the other hand banking dynasties, largely Jewish, financed revolutionaries and paid political agitators, once again largely Jewish, to help foment a climate of political discontent.
Of course, it would be a mistake to blame the “Jews” just as it would be to blame ordinary Britons or Americans. For behind the 1917 Russian revolution were a hybrid elite of Jewish bankers and Anglo-American blue bloods, with loyalty to no one and a readiness to sacrifice even their own kind in the pursuit of power.
Indeed, a preoccupation with the threat posed by the Jews probably contributed to the ultimate downfall of the Romanov’s. In the early years of the twentieth century the 'Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion' created a sensation, as it seemed to expose a Jewish conspiracy for world domination. Although many have tried to dismiss it as a forgery, the 'Protocols' helped focus attention on the threat posed by a Jewish conspiracy; while diverting attention from the very real threat posed by another faction in the alliance: the Anglo-American elite. So that when the fatal blows were finally struck they came from where they were least expected: not from Jewish extremists but from the Romanov’s own cousins, the British Royal Family.
But then treachery and deceit are the very means by which this dark alliance furthers its own power. Just as it once used Prince Yusopov, the man who took the blame for killing Rasputin, and who ended his final days as an exile in Paris.
Living out the role of the “man who killed Rasputin”, Yusopov was to tell numerous stories about the event. Often contradictory, they served to throw a veil of disinformation and deceit about the actual killing. For although the ageing homosexual and transvestite implied that Rasputin was secretly in love with him, which is probably yet more disinformation, never once did he even hint at the involvement of the British Secret Intelligence Service in Rasputin’s murder. Like the good intelligence asset he was, that secret went with Prince Yussopov to the grave.
A few days before his murder on December 16, 1916, Rasputin wrote a strangely prophetic letter to the Tsar, entitled “The Spirit Gregory Efrimovich Rasputin of the village Pokrovshoe”.
‘I write and leave behind me this letter at St. Petersburg. I feel that I shall leave this life before 1 January. I wish to make known to the Russian people, to Papa, to the Russian Mother, and to the Children, to the land of Russia, what they must understand. If I am killed by common assassins and especially by my brothers the Russian peasants, you, Tsar of Russia, have nothing to fear, remain on your throne and govern, and you, Russian Tsar, will have nothing to fear for your children, they will reign for hundreds of years in Russia. But if I am murdered by boyars, nobles, and if they have shed my blood, for twenty-five years they will not wash their hands from my blood. They will leave Russia. Brothers will kill brothers, and they will kill each other and hate each other, and for twenty-five years there will be no nobles in the country. Tsar of the land of Russia, if you hear the sound of the bell which will tell you that Gregory has been killed, you must know this: if it was your relations who have wrought my death, then no one in your family, that is to say, none of your children or relations will remain alive for more than two years. They will be killed by the Russian people …. I shall be killed. I am no longer among the living. Pray, pray, be strong, think of your blessed family.’(4)

Re: The Importance And Significance of Rasputin And His Murder
Rasputin sounds like strong Scorpio-Pluto.
Someone once told me..."forget CIA, forget Mossad...the British are King of the covert op."
To this day, this cold little hole with not a resource in site continues to dominate financially.
The British sense of irony belies a cold, calculating heart. Hitler absoloutly admired the British.
After reading the details of all the firestorm raids, I see a real coldness in the British psyche.

Re: The Importance And Significance of Rasputin And His Murder
I found this appendix in an article about the <a href="http://www.ihr.org/jhr/v14/v14n1p-4_Weber.html">true identity of Bolshevism</a> and the massacre of the Russian czar and his family, which give a comprehensive account:
Recent research and investigation by Radzinsky and others also corroborates the account provided years earlier by Robert Wilton, correspondent of the London Times in Russia for 17 years. His account, The Last Days of the Romanovs - originally published in 1920, and recently reissued by the Institute for Historical Review -- is based in large part on the findings of a detailed investigation carried out in 1919 by Nikolai Sokolov under the authority of "White" (anti-Communist) leader Alexander Kolchak. Wilton's book remains one of the most accurate and complete accounts of the murder of Russia's imperial family.
striking feature of Mr. Wilton's examination of the tumultuous 1917-1919 period in Russia is his frank treatment of the critically important Jewish role in establishing the Bolshevik regime.
The following lists of persons in the Bolshevik Party and Soviet administration during this period, which Wilton compiled on the basis of official reports and original documents, underscore the crucial Jewish role in these bodies. These lists first appeared in the rare French edition of Wilton's book, published in Paris in 1921 under the title Les Derniers Jours des Romanoffs. They did not appear in either the American or British editions of The Last Days of the Romanors published in 1920.
"I have done all in my power to act as an impartial chronicler," Wilton wrote in his foreword to Les Derniers Jours des Romanoffs. "In order not to leave myself open to any accusation of prejudice, I am giving the list of the members of the [Bolshevik Party' s] Central Committee, of the Extraordinary Commission [Cheka or secret police], and of the Council of Commissars functioning at the time of the assassination of the Imperial family.
"The 62 members of the [Central] Committee were composed of five Russians, one Ukrainian, six Letts [Latvians], two Germans, one Czech, two Armenians, three Georgians, one Karaim [Karaite] (a Jewish sect), and 41 Jews.
"The Extraordinary Commission [Cheka or Vecheka] of Moscow was composed of 36 members, including one German, one Pole, one Armenian, two Russians, eight Latvians, and 23 Jews.
"The Council of the People's Commissars [the Soviet .government] numbered two Armenians, three Russians, and 17 Jews.
"According to data furnished by the Soviet press, out of 556 important functionaries of the Bolshevik state, including the above-mentioned, in 1918-1919 there were: 17 Russians, two Ukrainians, eleven Armenians, 35 Letts [Latvians], 15 Germans, one Hungarian, ten Georgians, three Poles, three Finns, one Czech, one Karaim, and 457 Jews."
"If the reader is astonished to find the Jewish hand everywhere in the affair of the assassination of the Russian Imperial family, he must bear in mind the formidable numerical preponderance of Jews in the Soviet administration," Wilton went on to write.
Effective governmental power, Wilton continued (on pages 136-138 of the same edition) is in the Central Committee of the Bolshevik party. In 1918, he reported, this body had twelve members, of whom nine were of Jewish origin, and three were of Russian ancestry. The nine Jews were: Bronstein (Trotsky), Apfelbaum (Zinoviev), Lurie (Larine), Uritsky, Volodarski, Rosenfeld (Kamenev), Smidovich, Sverdlov (Yankel), and Nakhamkes (Steklov). The three Russians were: Ulyanov (Lenin), Krylenko, and Lunacharsky.
"The other Russian Socialist parties are similar in composition," Wilton went on. "Their Central Committees are made up as follows:"
Mensheviks (Social Democrats): Eleven members, all of whom are Jewish.
Communists of the People: Six members, of whom five are Jews and one is a Russian.
Social Revolutionaries (Right Wing): Fifteen members, of whom 13 are Jews and two are Russians (Kerenski, who may be of Jewish origin, and Tchaikovski).
Social Revolutionaries (Left Wing): Twelve members, of whom ten are Jews and two are Russians.
Committee of the Anarchists of Moscow: Five members, of whom four are Jews and one is a Russian.
Polish Communist Party: Twelve members, all of whom are Jews, including Sobelson (Radek), Krokhenal (Zagonski), and Schwartz (Goltz).
"These parties," commented Wilton, "in appearance opposed to the Bolsheviks, play the Bolsheviks' game on the sly, more or less, by preventing the Russians from pulling themselves together. Out of 61 individuals at the head of these parties, there are six Russians and 55 Jews. No matter what may be the name adopted, a revolutionary government will be Jewish."
[Although the Bolsheviks permitted these leftist political groups to operate for a time under close supervision and narrow limits, even these pitiful remnants of organized opposition were thoroughly eliminated by the end of the 1921 .]
The Soviet government, or "Council of People's Commissars' (also known as the "Sovnarkom") was made up of the following, Wilton reported:
Peoples Commissariat Name Nationality
Chairman V.I.Ulyanov (Lenin) Russian
Foreign Affairs G.V.Chicherin Russian
Nationalities J.Dzhugashvili [Stalin]Georgian
Agriculture Protian Armenian
Economic Council Lourie (Larin) Jew
Food Supply A.G.Schlikhter Jew
Army&Navy [Military] L.D.Bronstein (Trotski) Jew
State Control K.I.Lander Jew
State Lands Kaufmann Jew
Works [Labor] V. Schmidt Jew
Social Relief E. Lilina (Knigissen) Jew
Education A. Lunacharsky Russian
Religion Spitzberg Jew
Interior Apfelbaum [Radomyslski](Zinoviev) Jew
Hygiene Anvelt Jew
Finance I.E.Gukovs[and G.Sokolnikov] Jew
Press Voldarski [Goldstein] Jew
Elections M.S. Uritsky Jew
Justice I.Z. Shteinberg Jew
Refugees Fenigstein Jew
Refugees Savitch (Assistant) Jew
Refugees Zaslovski (Assistant) Jew
Out of these 22 "Sovnarkom" members, Wilton summed'up, there were three Russians, one Georgian, one Armenian, and 17 Jews.
The Central Executive Committee, Wilton continues, was made up of the following members:
Y. M. Sverdlov [Solomon] (Chairman) Jew
Avanesov (Secretary) Armenian
N. I. Bukharin Russian
Ganzberg [Ganzburg ] Jew
S. Dimanshtein Jew
A. A. Ioffe Jew
Rosenfeld (Kamenev) Jew
Apfelbaum (Zinoviev) Jew
N. Krylenko Russian
Ulyanov (Lenin) Russian
Nakhamkes (Steklov) Jew
L. Bronstein (Trotsky) Jew
Teodorovitch Jew [?]
Sobelson (Radek) Jew
Thus, concluded Wilton, out of 61 members, five were Russians, six were Latvians, one was a German, two were Armenians, one was a Czech, one was an Imeretian, two were Georgians, one was a Karaim, one. was a Ukrainian, and 41 were Jews.
The Extraordinary Commission of Moscow (Cheka) 'the Soviet secret police and predecessor of the GPU, the NKVD and the KGB was made up of the following:
F. Dzerzhinsky (Chairman) Pole
Y. Peters (Deputy Chairman) Latvian
Jacob Goldine Jew
G. Sverdlov (Brother of
president of the Central
Executive Committee) Jew
J. Blumkin (Count Mirbach's
I. Model Jew
Of these 36 Cheka officials, one was a Pole, one a German, one an Armenian, two were Russians, eight were Latvians, and 23 were Jews.
"Accordingly," Wilton sums up, "there is no reason to be surprised at the preponderant role of Jews in the assassination of the Imperial family. It is rather the opposite that would have been surprising."

What a great article, Draken. Do you see the parallels between the Romanovs and the Bush regime?
Re: The Importance And Significance of Rasputin And His Murder
...and I might add that any administration insider who tries to get Bush to withdraw from Iraq will become dogmeat in short order the same as Rudolph Hess or Rasputin.
