The Real Crime of M. Khodorkovsky

Original URL http://www.bollyn.com/the-zionist-criminal-network/#article_13113

January 21, 2011

There is an excellent article on VoltaireNet.org entitled "The Real Crime of M. Khodorkovsky"by F. William Engdahl, which I recommend. [Also reproduced on this page] In his short article, Engdahl explains how Khodorkovsky was working with George H.W. Bush, Jacob Rothschild, Henry Kissinger, and George Soros to take over the vital oil assets of Russia - in order to destroy Russia as a "functioning state". This plot was clearly not hatched in Washington nor was this being carried out to benefit the American people. The only beneficiaries of this criminal plot were the small group of men behind it.

The astute reader will notice that this is the same group of people who, I contend, are at the highest-level of the global hoax and cover-up of 9/11. I am listed in something called the Encyclopedia of American Loons because my research and findings indicate that these people are the real culprits behind 9/11. As the Encyclopedia says of my thesis : "9-11 was the product of a Zionist conspiracy (in particular organized by the Rothschild family) – the Zionist conspiracy that controls the US government and media." (See "Slaying the Debt Spider")

As Engdahl explains in his article, Khodorkovsky had a contractual agreement with Jacob Rothschild that in the event of his arrest and incarceration, Khodorkovsky's shares of 40 percent of Yukos would belong to Rothschild. This is a pretty good indication of who was financing Khodorkovsky's attempt to take over the vital oil assets of Russia. Khodorkovsky was a Rothschild-funded agent on the front line in the war to plunder Russia. Engdahl explains that Khodorkovsky was working closely with Henry Kissinger, George H.W. Bush, and George Soros, which raises the question of who is the top dog. It's pretty clear that these men are merely senior officers in Rothschild's army, as are the Clintons and Obamas.

As Eustace Mullins wrote in Secrets of the Federal Reserve: The House of Rothschild:

"The fact was that in 1910, the United States was for all practical purposes being ruled from England, and so it is today. The ten largest bank holding companies in the United States are firmly in the hands of certain banking houses, all of which have branches in London. They are J.P. Morgan Company, Brown Brothers Harriman (George H.W. Bush is the son of Prescott Bush, a founding partner of Brown Brothers Harriman), Warburg, Kuhn Loeb and J. Henry Schroder. All of them maintain close relationships with the House of Rothschild, principally through the Rothschild control of international money markets through its manipulation of the price of gold. Each day, the world price of gold is set in the London office of N.M. Rothschild and Company.

"Although these firms are ostensibly American firms, which merely maintain branches in London, the fact is that these banking houses actually take their direction from London. Their history is a fascinating one, and unknown to the American public, originating as it did in the international traffic in gold, slaves, diamonds, and other contraband. There are no moral considerations in any business decision made by these firms. They are interested solely in money and power."

9/11 - THE GLOBAL HOAX

When we consider the 9/11 cover-up, we find the former president and C.I.A. director George H.W. Bush and his son the president perfectly placed to block a blue-ribbon investigation and push a pack of lies on the public in order to wage a war of conquest in Afghanistan. Henry Kissinger was President Bush's first choice to chair the 9/11 commission. Kissinger's partner, the late Richard Holbrooke, served as Obama's special envoy to the Afghanistan-Pakistan war until his death last year. The C.I.A. is obviously engaged in the 9/11 deception while it wages its own covert war in the region using the pack of lies it peddles to the public through the controlled media. Remember, the C.I.A. was holding a plane-into-building drill on the very morning of 9/11, which oddly resulted in the employees of the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) in Chantilly, Virginia being sent home after the first plane struck the World Trade Center. The C.I.A. is clearly not serving the interests of the American people or republic, but simply works on behalf of the people behind the evil plot.

The following are some key extracts from Engdahl's article, which can be read in its entirety with links at: http://www.voltairenet.org/article168007.html


"At the time of his arrest Khodorkovsky was in the process of negotiating via his Carlyle friend George H.W. Bush, father of the then-President George W. Bush, the sale of 40 percent of Yukos to either Condi Rice’s former company, Chevron, or ExxonMobil in a move that would have dealt a crippling blow to the one asset left Russia and Putin to use for the rebuilding of the wrecked Russian economy: oil and export via state-owned pipelines to the West for dollars."

The final decision in the Russian trial against former oil oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky has drawn dramatic statements of protest from the US Obama Administration and governments around the world labeling Russian justice as tyrannical and worse. What is carefully omitted from the Khodovkorsky story however is the true reason Putin arrested and imprisoned the former head of Russia’s largest private oil giant, Yukos.

Mikhail Khodorkovsky’s real crime was not stealing Russia’s assets for a pittance in the bandit era of Yeltsin. His real crime is that he was a key part of a Western intelligence operation to dismantle and destroy what remains of Russia as a functioning state. When the facts are known the justice served on him is mild by comparison to US or UK standard treatment of those convicted of treason against the state. Obama’s torture prison at Guantánamo is merely one example of Washington’s double standard. ...


Prior to his arrest in 2003 Khodorkovsky (in the photo with first Russian President Boris Yeltsin) funded several Russian parties, including the Communist Party, most of which were in competition with each other. In an auction run by his own bank, Khodorkovsky paid $309 million for Yukos. In 2003 the same company was assessed as worth $45 billion ($45,000,000,000 or 145 times the purchase price), and not owing to Khodorkovsky’s management genius.

With his new billions in effect stolen from the Russian people, he made some powerful friends. He set up a foundation modeled on US billionaire George Soros’ Open Society, calling it the Open Russia Foundation. He invited two powerful Westerners to its board—Henry Kissinger and Jacob Lord Rothschild. Then he set about to develop ties with some of the most powerful circles in Washington where he was named to the Advisory Board of the secretive private equity firm, Carlyle Group where he attended board meetings with fellow advisors such as George H.W. Bush and James Baker III.


Jacob Rothschild was Khodorkovsky's key partner...


along with Rothschild's high-level agents Henry Kissinger, George Bush, and the late Richard Holbrooke.

However, the real crime that landed Khodorkovsky behind Russian bars was the fact that he was in the middle of making a US-backed coup d’etat to capture the Russian presidency in planned 2004 Russian Duma elections. Khodorkovsky was in the process of using his enormous wealth to buy enough seats in the coming Duma elections that he could change Russian laws regarding ownership of oil in the ground and of pipelines transporting same. In addition he planned to directly challenge Putin and become Russian President. As part of the horse trade that won Putin the tacit support of the wealthy so-called Russian Oligarchs, Putin had extracted agreement that they be allowed to hold on to their wealth provided they repatriate a share back into Russia and provided they not interfere in domestic Russian politics with their wealth. Most oligarchs agreed, as did Khodorkovsky at the time. They remain established Russian businessmen. Khodorkovsky did not.

Moreover, at the time of his arrest Khodorkovsky was in the process of negotiating via his Carlyle friend George H.W. Bush, father of the then-President George W. Bush, the sale of 40% of Yukos to either Condi Rice’s former company, Chevron or ExxonMobil in a move that would have dealt a crippling blow to the one asset left Russia and Putin to use for the rebuilding of the wrecked Russian economy: oil and export via state-owned pipelines to the West for dollars. During the ensuing Russian state prosecution of Yukos, it came to light that Khodorkovsky had also secretly made a contract with London’s Lord Rothschild not merely to support Russian culture via the Open Russia Foundation of Khodorkovsky. In the event of his possible arrest (Khodorkovsky evidently knew he was playing a high-risk game trying to create a coup against Putin) the 40% share of his Yukos stocks would pass into the hands of Lord Rothschild.

The crocodile tears of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama for the violations of Khodorkovsky’s human rights hide a far deeper agenda that is not being admitted. Washington used the Russian to try to reach its goal of totally destroying the only power left on the earth with sufficient military strike power to challenge the Pentagon’s Full Spectrum Dominance strategy—control of the entire planet. When seen in that light the sweet loaded words “human rights” take on a quite different meaning.

The Real Crime of M. Khodorkovsky


by F. William Engdahl

The final decision in the Russian trial against former oil oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky has drawn dramatic statements of protest from the US Obama Administration and governments around the world labeling Russian justice as tyrannical and worse. What is carefully omitted from the Khodovkorsky story however is the true reason Putin arrested and imprisoned the former head of Russia’s largest private oil giant, Yukos.

The Obama administration, in an unusual public rebuke, condemned a Moscow court for finding oil tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky and his former partner guilty of embezzling, saying it appears to be “an abusive use of the legal system for improper ends.”

Mikhail Khodorkovsky’s real crime was not stealing Russia’s assets for a pittance in the bandit era of Yeltsin. His real crime is that he was a key part of a Western intelligence operation to dismantle and destroy what remains of Russia as a functioning state. When the facts are known the justice served on him is mild by comparison to US or UK standard treatment of those convicted of treason against the state. Obama’s torture prison at Guantánamo is merely one example of Washington’s double standard.

According to the politically correct sanitized account in Wikipedia, “Yukos Oil Company was a petroleum company in Russia which, until 2003, was controlled by Russian oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky…Khodorkovsky was convicted and sent to prison…Yukos was one of the biggest and one of the most successful Russian companies in 2000-2003. In 2003, following a tax reassessment, the Russian government presented Yukos with a series of tax claims that amounted to $27 billion. As Yukos’s assets were frozen by the government at the same time, the company was not able to pay these tax demands. On August 1, 2006, a Russian court declared Yukos bankrupt. Most of Yukos’s assets were sold at low prices to oil companies owned by the Russian government. The Parliamentary Council of Europe has condemned Russia’s campaign against Yukos and its owners as manufactured for political reasons and a violation of human rights.”

Prior to his arrest in 2003 Khodorkovsky (in the photo with first Russian President Boris Yeltsin) funded several Russian parties, including the Communist Party, most of which were in competition with each other.

If we dig a little deeper however we find a quite different case. As he stepped out of his private plane in Siberia in October 2003 Khodorkovsky was arrested. He was arrested, as Wikipedia correctly states, for tax crimes. What they did not say is that he at the tender age of 40 had risen to become the richest man in Russia worth some $15 billion by fraudulent acquisition of state assets during the lawless Yeltsin era. In an auction run by his own bank, Khodorkovsky paid $309 million for Yukos. In 2003 the same company was assessed as worth $45 billion, and not owing to Khodorkovsky’s management genius.

In 1998, Khodorkovsky had been let free in a US case where he was charged with helping launder $10 billion with his own bank and the Bank of New York. He had very influential friends in the US it appeared. The then head of the Republic National Bank of New York, Edmund Safra, was murdered some months later in his Monaco apartment reportedly from members of an alleged “Russian mafia” whom he had cheated in a drug money laundering scheme.

But there was more. Khodorkovsky built some impressive ties in the West. With his new billions in effect stolen from the Russian people, he made some powerful friends. He set up a foundation modeled on US billionaire George Soros’ Open Society, calling it the Open Russia Foundation. He invited two powerful Westerners to its board—Henry Kissinger and Jacob Lord Rothschild. Then he set about to develop ties with some of the most powerful circles in Washington where he was named to the Advisory Board of the secretive private equity firm, Carlyle Group where he attended board meetings with fellow advisors such as George H.W.

At the author’s request, Voltaire Network is reproducing a letter correcting a reference he made in this article:

Friday, January 14, 2011

Dear Mr. Engdahl,

I am writing to you on behalf of the Edmond J. Safra Philanthropic Foundation and Mrs. Lily Safra concerning an article which you published on the website http://www.voltairenet.org/, on January 5, 2011, entitled "The Real Crime of M. Khodorkovsky."

The article contains the following reference which is false:

"The then head of the Republic National Bank of New York, Edmund Safra, was murdered some months later in his Monaco apartment reportedly from members of an alleged "Russian mafia" whom he had cheated in a drug money laundering scheme."

In fact, Mr. Safra’s death was ruled by a court to be arson by one individual. Mr. Ted Maher confessed to the crime and was convicted by the Court of Monaco in 2002. He was sentenced to a prison term, which was served in its entirety. There was never a question of any other person’s or group’s involvement.

We would appreciate your posting this correction of the erroneous information on your site.

Should you need any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Best Regards,

Seth Goldschlager
Safra S.A.
