The Real Crime of M. Khodorkovsky

The Real Crime of M. Khodorkovsky

Christopher Bollyn – January 21, 2011

There is an excellent article on entitled The Real Crime of M. Khodorkovsky by F. William Engdahl, which I recommend.  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.”


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:

“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.
