One hundred years ago Jewish Bolsheviks slaughtered the Romanov family after they were herded into a basement in Yekaterinburg under the pretext that their photograph was to be taken.
Tsar Nicolas II and Tsarina Alexandra, their daughters Olga (22) Tatiana (21), Maria (19), Anastasia (17) and Alexei (13) were assassinated under a hail of bullets. The family’s corpses and those of three loyal servants and family doctor were hurled down a mine and later burned.
There were 53 Romanov’s living in Russia when Tsar Nicholas II abdicated on March 15, 1917. Eighteen were slaughtered in the most heart-wrenching circumstances, while 35 family members made their way to safety.
Except for in the West it is hard to forget the tragedy, but from Kaliningrad to the Bering Straits, a distance about 5,700 miles, the Russian people this year lament their loss. Monuments and museums, art galleries, movies, television documentary and drama, church services all commemorate the horrific passage in history.
The so-called Russian revolution was a coup similar to most Western-inspired regime changes. Jacob Schiff, (1847 – 1920), the Wall Street banker who had financed Japan during the Russo-Japanese War (1904 – 1905), publicly boasted of his success in bringing about the coup.
Western corporations moved in for the kill; Ford, General Electric, International Harvester, Caterpillar etc. Gulag slaves, whom Trotsky dubbed White Negroes, worked harder and cost less than those employed in Western sweatshops. Over 1,000 Gulag camps were scattered across this banksters colony.
In 1911 the Bolshevik insider Robert Minor published a cartoon that portrayed Karl Marx with a book entitled Socialism under his arm, standing amid a cheering crowd on Wall Street.
Gathered around and greeting him with enthusiastic handshakes are characters identified as John D. Rockefeller, J.P. Morgan, John D. Ryan of National City Bank, Morgan partner George W. Perkins and Teddy Roosevelt, leader of the Progressive Party.
The fate of the Tsar and his family are fairly well known. However, few have been told what happened to the others making up the then 300-years old Romanov Dynasty (1613 – 1917).
The Romanov Dynasty was primarily a family made up of the best of Europe’s royal houses. The blood of the martyrs was that of England, Denmark, Greece, Germany, and Romania, Habsburg dynasty, Russia and Serbia.
Imperial Russia’s gold reserves weighed 1,311 tonnes, which is $60 billion at today’s value. This too went west and not to the workers.
The martyred Romanov’s could lay claim to being the essence of Europe’s royal houses. Theirs was not so much a Russian as a European dynasty.
