Alexander Timofeev: I bring to your attention a part article written by me for the newspaper "serve his country" (online version of the publication is in the works).
As you know, the modern world is ruled by capital. Alas, this is the real picture of yesterday, today, and, perhaps, and tomorrow. It just so happened that as long as there is money, people (in the vast majority, except for some righteous and crazy) will seek to acquire them. And some have, for various reasons it will turn out more successfully than others — that is the law of life. It is also obvious that the owners of large estates will seek to at least maintain, or even better — to increase. And to this end need power to get the most to solve tasks. That is, the real power is possessed by those who have the real financial resources. And these people (or rather, these groups) really manage the world economy and politics. Given that the amount of available capital is not unlimited, between the two groups, there is stiff competition for influence and access to sources of wealth. But with all this, all participants are interested in the competition rules-global game and have to negotiate in order to avoid needless loss. I think few would argue against the allegations. But they are, in essence, is a summary of the so-called "conspiracy theory", the mention of which many in the face appears condescending smile: "Yes, yes, how have heard — a global conspiracy, a secret world government," syndicate " "The Committee of 300", Bilderberg, and other nonsense. "
It just so happened that the reasoning of the "conspiracy theory" is widely perceived as a paranoid delusion, not bothering, however, with at least try to think about whether all this delirium rational. That is why there was this article — as an attempt to independently own view, look at the "conspiracy theory" as applied to our country.
Begin, perhaps, is to the definition given by George Entin, Professor Emeritus, University of Pennsylvania, in his book "Conspiracy theories and konspirativistsky mentality": "Conspiracy — is illegal actions of a small, working in secret group of people set out to make a turn in the development of historical events, such as and overthrow the government. The theory of the conspiracy — it is an attempt to explain an event or series of events as a result of a conspiracy. " Clear enough to determine, in which there is only one "but": why action conspirators have to be illegal? You can just make the adoption of laws providing, in the end, to achieve the desired goal. And then we just get an ordinary situation where a group of influential people has set itself a goal and achieve neafishiruemuyu, using all available means. Such a situation is all the time, even at the grassroots level. After all, no one is surprised that any large financial-industrial group pushing for the State Duma, or the governors of their own, cycling all of the available options. And sometimes it turns out, even so, that the power of moving persons directly connected with the crime. The same thing is happening in other countries — large companies finance election campaigns of candidates for senators, governors, and presidents, and no one thinks that this is just a special case of the manifestation of the "conspiracy theory" in action. And just as everything is completely taken for granted when the president or prime minister of the country during the visit of the foreign lobbies interests of large national corporations — is that these very leaders simply promote the interests of the state. How can you not remember the catch phrase "What's good for Boeing is good for America."
And hardly anyone surprised saying that his country's economy is controlled by a small group of people (or rather, several groups), because this is true even of totalitarian regimes.
In conditions of internationalization of business, which is now included in the phase of globalization, the interests of the industrial and financial groups around the cross, and the groups themselves are merged with each other or are absorbed by stronger and more experienced. But these very strong and experienced in the world quite a bit. These include groups that have historically created a powerful position in the world economy and their names are well known. First of all, it is the Rothschilds and the Rockefellers, as the vast majority of other groups associated with these two clans, or depend on them (acting as agents) or fully controlled by them — the Morgans, the Mellons, Kuna, Loeb, Warburgs, etc.
It makes no sense to go into the history of these two clans (although it is so exciting that it can eclipse filming all hitherto taken worldwide blockbusters) — anyone easily find it on the Internet. I would like to talk, especially about Mother Russia and, of course, starting from the historical record.
The history of relations between Russia and the Rothschilds began in the late 18th century. Russian Empress Catherine II refused to King George III to send a punitive expedition corps (20 thousand Cossacks) to suppress the rebellion in the colonies. Responded to the request of Prince William I of Saxony, who for 8 million pounds paid to Treasuries, provided mercenaries. His manager, AM Rothschild, took the paper at a discount, and that embezzled. Thus began the rise of the Rothschild family to the heights of financial power.
AM Rothschild was involved in financing the preparation of the French Revolution. Son of Catherine II, Paul I November 28, 1798 took the title of "Grand Master of the Sovereign Order of Saint John of Jerusalem." Napoleon Bonaparte in 1801, began talks with Paul to withdraw the joint efforts of the "pearl of the British Crown" — India. January 18, 1801 Don Cossack Ataman Vasily Orlov was sent secret orders to 30 thousand Cossacks and artillery to move through Kazakhstan to the Indus.
England supporters — the military governor of St. Petersburg Palen and Count Panin — organized a coup in favor of Alexander I. Russia was dragged into the war against Napoleon in Europe: the first war in 1805 — the defeat of the Russian-Austrian army at Austerlitz, the second war in 1807 — the defeat of the Russian army in East Prussia. In 1807-1812 Russia's already in an alliance with Napoleon carries continental blockade of England in naval warfare. However, in England, Napoleon did not go — it ended the war in Russia in 1812 and the capture of the French in Moscow.
The Napoleonic Wars were the perfect vehicle for the production of money international bankers. Rothschild family has learned a lot of benefit from the establishment of the banking network (London — Paris — Frankfurt am Main — Vienna — Naples), cover a large part of Europe, as well as information sharing. By the end of the Napoleonic wars, the French branch of the family only cost 600 million francs and 150 million exceeded the capital of all the other banks in France. Nathan Rothschild led the Bank of England (which since 1694 has been a private bank) under the control of the family — the bank has become the main agent of further international expansion. The Battle of Waterloo eliminated the extraordinary threat to further the activities of international bankers. The fact that the Emperor Napoleon in the end realized that he, the French people and the French army made a pawn of the expenditure to ensure financial power of the Rothschild family. His are the words: "Money has no motherland, financiers have no patriotism, no integrity, and their only goal — profit." He tried to introduce his "continental system": monetary policy directed to the development of agriculture and industry. He sought to ensure that external trade is not governed by the state. He finished a link to a deserted island.
In 1816, England demonetizirovala took silver and the gold standard. By this time, the Rothschilds control a large part of the gold reserves, and fixed the price. The price of bullion was set twice a day on the London Stock Exchange by the five major gold dealers. They just agreed (natural essence of price competition) the price at which were ready to trade gold on this day. Therefore, the adoption of a gold standard country meant that their monetary system is under the control of the Bank of England (Rothschilds), ie simply dependent on the London brokers to sell bullion.
In the years 1839-1843, Russian Finance Minister E.F.Kankrin prepared monetary reform to establish a steady policy of notes with respect to the silver ruble. For the preparation of the reform he accelerated the accumulation of silver reserves, has introduced cost-saving mode and only cut military spending by half, raised funds from the public by winning tickets and Treasury bonds. In 1843, instead of the new banknotes were issued paper money — credit rubles, which are freely exchanged for silver at a ratio of 1:1. The ruble was stable monetary unit — this Bank of England could not allow.
Troopers with the Anglo-French squadron captured Russian fortress Bomardzund (Baltic Sea) on 16 August 1854. In August of that year, British and French troops landed in Petropavlovsk-on-Kamchatka. Turkish-French-English 60-thousand troops in September of the same year, landed in Yalta in Crimea — the beginning of a long defense of Sevastopol. War Russia threatened Austria and Sweden. With the threat of Japanese aggression and even Russia was forced to sign the February 7, 1855 Russian-Japanese agreement on the division of the Kuril Islands and Sakhalin Island co-owned.
The huge postwar budget deficit led to the abolition of serfdom in 1861 — the state bought the land from the landlords securities. The peasants were indebted states were combined and returned to the community under the collective responsibility of their state debt "live" money in installments in 49 years and the payment of 6% per annum. In 1862-1863 years. Finance Minister M.H.Reytern undertook an attempt to stabilize the monetary system of Russia An extra security for a fixed rate. For this reform Russia was received large foreign loan from, say, the British Rothschilds, and in 1864, our country has its first commercial bank credit. But after a few years the budget deficit has widened. To cover the debt to the Rothschilds in 1867, it was decided to sell Alaska to the United States for $ 7.3 million (but the money has not yet been received — the ship on which they allegedly shipped from the U.S., sank before they reached St. Petersburg). In the end, Russia abandoned the gold support.
It is interesting, incidentally, that the history of Russia and the U.S. has a lot of intersections, many of which are related to the Rothschilds. So, being faithful to its tradition of making the wars, the Civil War on the North American continent, the Rothschilds financed the two warring sides: London bank Rothschild financed the army of the North, a Paris bank — the army of the South. Learning of this, Lincoln refused in 1862 and 1863 to pay exorbitant rates Rothschilds. Moreover, he asked Congress to begin to print dollars to be able to pay for the army of the North. In 1864, Lincoln learned that the Russian Emperor Alexander II spoke out against the Rothschilds, denying their continuous efforts to create a central bank under their control in Russia. The same struggle against the Rothschilds, but in America, and he led Lincoln. He turned to Alexander II for assistance in the civil war, and the Emperor of Russia has responded to this request by sending the Atlantic squadron under Admiral Popov in New York harbor and the Pacific squadron admiral Lisowski — in San Francisco. He ordered Popov and Lisovsky "be ready to do battle with any enemy forces and take command of Lincoln", thus enabling to understand England, France and Spain, which in the case of their intervention Russia would support President Lincoln. In the end, something happened that had happened — Lincoln won the civil war, but the Rothschilds harbored resentment both him and Alexander II.
The main objective of the Rothschilds in Russia in the 19th century was to get control of the oil fields in Baku. This result has been achieved, helped by the results of Russian-Turkish War — Russia got Batum. However, this was preceded by serious backroom struggle to which our country, ironically, had almost nothing to do. Actually, England initially was opposed. Peter Shuvalov, who on behalf of Alexander II conducted secret negotiations with the British government reported to the emperor of the existence of the secret Anglo-Turkish agreement: "If Batum, Ardahan, Kars, or any of these places will keep Russia" — read the document — England obliged by force of arms to help protect the Asian possessions Sultan of Turkey. Actually, the Russian tsar was quite ready to agree to leave Turkey Batum, but suddenly, against all expectations, the British agreed to transfer its still Russia.
Only after many years it became clear that behind the scenes of these diplomatic maneuvers were really two powerful forces — Parisian bankers Rothschild and U.S. oil company "Standard Oil" Rockefeller. Rothschild was necessary to ensure that any form of Batum proved to be under the jurisdiction of Russia, while the Rockefeller was trying to prevent the penetration of the Rothschilds to the Caucasus. But it ended that on August 25, 1878, in Batum entered the Russian army led by Prince Svyatopolk-Mirsky.
And so, in 1886, the French banking house "Rothschild Brothers", who bought shares of the Caspian-Black Sea oil industry and trade company began to take an active part in the development of the oil industry in the Caucasus. But first he had to face stiff competition as early as 1879, in Baku was registered partnership oil production Nobel. However, the competition was not very long. Using the fact that lending in Russia was carried out at the rate of 6 per cent per annum, the Rothschilds were given loans at 2 — 3 percent. Thus, as early as 1888 a family get hold almost half of the Transcaucasian railway wagons, made subject to a significant number of small and medium-sized enterprises, concentrated in the hands of large quantities of the Baku oil. From this point on the Rothschilds began to establish complete control over the handling of oil for export.
The events unfolded on the proven scenario: The Rothschilds have traditionally lent "cheap" money small Russian oil industrialists in return for guarantees of acquiring crude oil at competitive prices for yourself enough to make the business unprofitable Nobel, who built the Baku — Batumi. Incidentally, he was eventually built (including by Alfred Nobel invented dynamite), and in 1889 even commissioned, but it did not help win the fight against the Rothschilds, have enormous financial resources. As a result, the Baku oil fell almost entirely under the control of the Rothschilds, as Russia became the largest after the U.S. oil supplier in the world. In 1900, the Baku oil fields in Russia producing more crude oil than in all the United States, and in 1902 more than half the world's oil comes from Russia.
Of course, Rockefeller could not accept this situation. And the solution was found — a revolution in Russia. The documents Kongressea the United States, John D. Rockefeller, the first years of the 20th century has provided financial support to Lenin and Trotsky, strengthening it after the failure of the 1905 revolution. The most active work began in January 1917, when the Rockefeller partner Jacob Schiff began to finance Trotsky to accomplish the socialist revolution in Russia. Trotsky was brought to the United States, where he lived for free in the room that are owned «Standard Oil» in Bayonne, New Jersey.
When in 1917, Nicholas II abdicated, Trotsky, with 10 thousand dollars, which he identified Rockefeller for travel expenses, went with a group of 300 revolutionaries in Europe. But on the way he was arrested by Canadian authorities at the request of the British "until further notice." Recollecting himself, the British Prime Minister Lloyd George sent an urgent telegram orders from London Secret Service of Canada, that they immediately freed Trotsky, but they did not react to this with great care. As a result, Trotsky was released thanks to the direct intervention of Rockefeller, who is directly addressed his devoted friend — Canadian Minister Mackenzie King.
Thus, John D. Rockefeller had a very strong support to the revolution in Russia. And the result was quite impressive. Not only is Russia, lost in the chaos of the revolution and civil war, lost its position in the global oil market, so Rockefeller also received the right to sell Russian oil — in 1926, the New York company «Standard Oil», owned by the Rockefellers, and its Partner «Vacuum Oil Company» through «Chase Manhattan Bank» concluded a contract for the sale of Soviet oil to European countries. At the same time it was reported that John D. Rockefeller gave the Bolsheviks a loan of $ 75 million, part of the price for the contract. As a result of the agreement in 1927, the New York «Standard Oil» built a refinery in Russia. In this manner, Rockefeller has contributed to the restoration of the Bolshevik economy, despite the fact that the United States government officially recognized the Soviet government only in 1933.
U.S. Congressman Louis McFadden, Chairman of the House Banking Committee, speaking to members of Congress June 10, 1932 said: "Open the book Voyentorg, trade organization of the Soviet government in New York, Gosstorga, the main body of the trade organization of the Soviet Union, and the State Bank of the USSR, and You will be surprised at how much money Americans went from the Treasury of the United States to Russia. Check which transactions are carried out between the State Bank of the USSR and the «Standard Oil» New York. " It should be noted that McFadden was investigating the manipulation of the Federal Reserve, which controls the U.S. Treasury, which cost him three attempts on the life. In the end, he died in was not ascertained until the end of the circumstances.
According to the American Professor Antony Sutton, the Rockefellers during the entire period of Soviet history provide financial and technological assistance to the Soviet Union in exchange for granting them exclusive rights in the oil trade. In 1972, speaking before the sub-committee of the Republican Party, Sutton, based on documents received by it, said: "More than two thirds of all ships (trade Fota) was built outside the Soviet Union, and four out of five engines for these ships were also made for outside the country. All cars, trucks, weapons, tanks, planes and Soviet technological developments come from the West. GAZ, established companies «Ford» and «Austin», released most of the trucks that were used for the supply of Soviet arms to Ho Chi Minh. Enterprise car can also be used for the production of tanks. The same GAZ produced in 1964, the first guided anti-system. In the Soviet Union hosted the world's largest iron and steel plant. It was built by the corporation "MsKee." This is a copy factories began in Indiana, in the United States. "
It should be noted that David Rockefeller has repeatedly met with Soviet leaders and high-ranking — in 1964 by Nikita Khrushchev (2 months before his dismissal), in 1973 — with Alexei Kosygin. In all cases, discussed the most pressing issues for Rockefeller — the expansion of trade and economic cooperation. In 1989, David Rockefeller visited the Soviet Union with a delegation of the Trilateral Commission, which included Henry Kissinger, the former French president Giscard Estena (Bilderberg member and later chief editor of the EU constitution), the former Prime Minister Yasuhiro Nakasone and William Highland, editor published by the Council on Foreign Relations magazine Foreign Affairs. At a meeting with Mikhail Gorbachev, the delegation asked how the Soviet Union is going to integrate into the world economy and the explanations received Mikhail Gorbachev. The next meeting D. Rockefeller and other members of the Trilateral Commission and Mikhail Gorbachev with his environment was held in Moscow in 1991, shortly before the coup. By the way, looking ahead it is worth noting that in 1992, Gorbachev, already a private person, paid a return visit to Rockefeller in New York. As a result of this meeting, held at the "Waldorf Astoria", the former president of the Soviet Union was able to obtain the consent of his "old friend", Mikhail Gorbachev, to allocate financial assistance in the amount of 75 million dollars for the organization of the Global Fund and the "presidential library on the American model."
Thus, throughout Soviet history, the only foreign financial and industrial group with influence over one sixth of the land, was the Rockefeller clan. This, however, is not going to put up their main rivals in the face of the Rothschilds.
If you believe the statement by the head of the Soviet government Valentin Pavlov, made in the spring of 1991, the Rothschilds were prepared geopolitical conspiracy against the Soviet Union. In this regard, it is worth remembering how to begin rebuilding. In the late 80's of the last century, the CPSU General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev in Moscow sanctioned the creation of a strong international business "Bank lending and public finance national programs" (BNP). Its main shareholder was to become a Swiss bank Rothschild Banque Privee Edmond de RothschildSA. Claiming to obtain total control over the economy of Soviet union, the Rothschilds demanded by the Commission for the study of natural forces and resources of the USSR of a complete inventory of all the continental resources. But then intervened so hated foreigners KGB, saying that leaders of a number of joint ventures that are connected to the creation of BNP are associated with international mafia (including drug trafficking). It was found that the main revenue stream drug cartels went to Switzerland, where he settled in the part of the Rothschild banks. Of course, the brewing scandal was eventually repaid, and in exchange, they control through the Rothschilds began to finance the restructuring of the company. The result exceeded all expectations — the Soviet Union collapsed, and the Rothschild clan was able to win from the Rockefeller ground lost after the revolution of 1917.
Actually, the facts of Russia's recent history suggests that the Rothschilds gradually achieve the desired result. However, judge for yourself.
After the famous scandal with the arrest of Mikhail Khodorkovsky, the British publication of the weekly "Sunday Times", it became known that Mikhail Khodorkovsky, who is in custody, has transferred its shares (which is 53%), Lord Jacob Rothschild, because from now in force concluded between earlier agreement on custody, under which the shares were transferred to Rothschild when Khodorkovsky will lose the ability to act as the beneficiary, ie the person receiving the income from the shares. But, as many experts, this agreement essentially means that Khodorkovsky was only a nominal owner of "Yukos" and in reality, the company owned by Rothschild, who, apparently, and initiated the conclusion of this agreement, when it became clear that Khodorkovsky engaged in a political struggle for power with the Kremlin.
It should be noted that some conspiracy theorists believe that the arrest of Khodorkovsky, "a hand" Rockefellers, as belonging to an American oil company ExxonMobil himself tried to absorb "Yukos", but was unable to do so, zavyaznuv in trials in the U.S. due to the fine $ 11.8 billion, imposed by a court in Alabama for financial fraud and underpayment in the budget. Rather, by the way, it's funny that the governor of this state, Bob Riley on his website is proud to announce its membership in the Masons, with which to associate the traditional Rothschild.
But the Rothschilds would be the Rothschilds, had "put all your eggs in one basket." Besides the "Yukos affair" in the Russian oil industry there is the brainchild of the Rothschild "British Petroleum." It is a deal between BP and "Rosneft" mutual exchange of shares is considered a "deal of the century" and the Rockefellers wild causes irritation, because it is not just the exchange of shares, but on global cooperation in the strategically important Arctic region. Therein lie the roots of the current judicial showdown, in which the joint venture TNK-BR seeks to challenge the deal. While the Rockefellers have achieved some success, as the recent court ruling obliged BP and "Rosneft" to consider the interests of TNK-BP, but do not doubt that it will be challenged.
So far there is no solution, Nathaniel Rothschild turned his attention to the company "Bashneft" (onasovsem recently won a tender for the development of two highly promising fields Trebs and Titov) and "Russneft", intending to buy their shares owned by AFK "Sistema" Russian oligarch Vladimir Yevtushenko . Company representatives Vallares, Rothschild created together with the former head of "British Petroleum" Tony Hayward.
However, "not a single oil." At present, the scope of the Rothschild interests in Russia include almost all of the key resource areas. Enough just to say that the chairman of the supervisory board of UC Rusal (Rusal — the company that owns the aluminum industry in Russia) is Nathaniel Rothschild. By the way, he owns the phrase, "I returned to Russia Rothschild," he said in an interview with the newspaper "Vedomosti". N.Rotshild, in his own words, has long been friends with Oleg Deripaska (key shareholder RUSAL) and is well acquainted with Vladimir Potanin (partner, "Norilsk Nickel"), planning to head to Russia yet and the Board, "Norilsk Nickel". However, the latter was not at all easy — repeated attempts to introduce new people to RUSAL's in control, "Norilsk Nickel" has not yet been successful.
In this regard, it is worth remembering just about declared in January 2011, creating the so-called "cold fusion" — a facility operating on the basis of cold fusion and allowing remarkably cheap electricity using hydrogen and nickel (about this event, threatens to become a worldwide sensation and change the world, it was said in the first part of published material under the title "Conspiracy Theory"). Just this post as something very coincided with the desire Nathaniel Rothschild to join the Board of Directors, "Norilsk Nickel" — the world's largest producer of the metal. And just as suddenly, the refusal of "Norilsk Nickel" allow new faces to the company management surprisingly echoes cease talking about installing the "cold fusion." So it begs the seditious idea that will fail to get control over the "Norilsk Nickel" some "interested entities" arranged for the time being to freeze the implementation of technologies to get cheap electricity with the use of nickel on a "so as not to get you to anyone! ". This means that the struggle for "Norilsk Nickel" will continue.
However, the battle will be waged not only for that. In the press got a government document dated 25 October 2010. N1874-p, which determines the order of Russian privatization of state enterprises, which is planned for 2011-2013. According to this decree, the Russian government authorizes the sale of state property subject to privatization authorized several structures, including the following applications: JSC "Credit Suisse", OOO "Deutsche Bank" LLC CB "JP Morgan Bank International" LLC, "Merrill Lynch Securities "LLC," Morgan Stanley "and" Goldman Sachs. " However, there is among the "pampered" structures and Russia, in particular, "VTB Capital", but the sale of the shares of VTB charged somehow "Merrill Lynch Securities." List of companies which state shares are sold, approved by the Ministry of Finance of Russia and the Ministry of Economic Development and the list of state assets includes "Rosneft", "Transneft", Sberbank, "Sovcomflot", VTB, Russian Agricultural Bank, "Rosagroleasing", "Rosspirtprom" UGC, FSK and "RusHydro". But this is only the "most Krupnyakov" here will be sold small stakes that do allow their owners to participate fully in the management of companies. On a much larger scale plan to privatize the "less important" companies, among which, oddly enough, included even sea ports. It seems there are plenty of willing, as port — it is an opportunity to participate in the regulation of foreign trade.
So that the fight is just beginning, and it will take place not only in Russia but also in the entire former Soviet Union, where recently gained momentum integration. The Rothschilds, by the way, this is pretty well understood and attended to in order to create such a position, even in an "uncomfortable" position as Belarus. so, in 2009, at the request of the Belarusian government experts Rothschild financial group assessed the market value of one of the leading banks in Belarus — BPS-Bank, leaving it in three ways: from 150 to 500 million dollars. As a result, in late 2009, BPS-Bank was sold to the Russian Sberbank for 280.7 million dollars. The Belarusian side remained very satisfied with results of cooperation and decided to continue it — inFebruary 2010, the President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko has invited financial group Rothschild to evaluate the privatized enterprises in the republic, voicing this proposal during a personal meeting withManaging Director of Rothschild Ariel de Rothschild.
Naturally, in the present conditions or the Rothschilds or the Rockefellers, however powerful they may be, can not claim to be alone to "skim the cream" in Russia and the former Soviet Union. Globalization has led to the fact that all financial and industrial clans to reckon with each other and work together, establishing a level playing field at regular meetings like the Bilderberg Club. And while financiers also have to reckon with their governments, as if they were condescending to them or looked at.
As for Russia, in this situation, it is a unique opportunity to use the competition of international financial and industrial groups for their own purposes. Stupid and foolish it would be to accept the role of the person exposed and not try to be his subject, however difficult it may seem. In solving this problem it is possible to cooperate with China, which is considered the "fiefdom" of Rothschild (just to the Middle Kingdom in recent years, they moved their home base). As long as the Rothschilds believe that China operates on a tip they own bank HSBC (which is really advising the Chinese government on financial and economic issues), Beijing plays its game and is not going to lose. In other words, while the Rothschilds to the Rockefellers played their game of chess, Moscow and Beijing may try to beat them in a "Snap".
