This important article was shared by Mr. S.D., and it is important to pass along. Mikhail Khodorkovsky, the famous Russian oligarch whose company, Yukos, was seized by the Putin government, which also, fora time, jailed Mr. Khodorkovsky himself, is now predicting an end to the Putin Government in the next ten years, and setting up the apparatus (and apparatchiks presumably), to do it:

Russian Tycoon: We Must Prepare For Putin’s Inevitable Downfall

This article is, however. so full of buzzwords and agendas, that one scarcely know where to begin. But I suppose the problems are best found concentrated in these two paragraphs:

"Khodorkovsky has resurrected his foundation, Open Russia, which was established in 2001 by shareholders of Yukos, his former company. It was shuttered in 2006, though, when Putin’s government seized its assets following Khodorkovsky’s conviction in two corruption cases, widely considered to have been politically motivated. The group’s mission is to build a civil society and political infrastructure among pro-European Russians to influence the post-Putin political system.

"The website says the group will build projects to support independent media, political education, and advocate on behalf of political prisoners inside Russia. But Khodorkovsky said the goal was to make sure that when the regime falls, especially if it’s bloody or chaotic, that those who support Western values like democracy, a free press, the separation of powers, the rule of law, and human rights will come out on top."

The trouble with Mr. Khodorkovsky's remarks, assuming him for the moment to be well-meaning and sincere, is that modern "Western values like democracy, a free press, the separation of powers, the rule of law, and human rights" are not coming out on top in the West. Corporations get special treatment before corrupted courts, the mainstream Western media is not genuinely free, but merely a mouthpiece for those special corporate interests, human rights and Western culture values are under assault in virtually every Western country in the name of "multiculturalism"(just ask native Spaniards, for example, of what is happening in their country to their Western values), and there is little to no separation of corporate and government power in the west any more, witness the bank bailouts, (and indeed, the policies that led to them!), the GMO issue, and on and on we could go.

If anything, Mr. Khodorkovsky's remarks indicate what the real game is, behind all the flowery rhetoric: Russia's culture is unique; it both is, and is not European in the "western values" sense, since its long history in Eastern Orthodoxy makes it peculiarly unique. And Mr. Putin has played to that sense, among Russians, that there is something deeply, spiritually amiss in modern secular Western culture. Perhaps one might say he is engaged in a grand cultural experiment, trying to create a different type of secular culture, distinct from that of the materialistic atheism that the West helped impose on Russia under the Communists. Others are listening, the President of Hungary, for example, and it is this that infuriates the grand dumbing-down experiment of the Anglosphere, busy, as they have been, to eradicate any sense of the transcendent, of the spiritual, of the moral, and of the individual and of uniqueness in Western culture to the point that it is now anathema to speak, in some circles, in anything but a hushed tone of voice, in the pride of French culture, or Spanish culture, or Italian culture, and so on. And if one does do so, one is almost instantly flooded with all manner of rabid right-wing "white supremacist" nonsense that has, once again, reared its ugly head in Europe and North America.

Mr. Khodorkovsky is, of course, not wrong. Democracy, free speech, freedom of assembly, religion, rule of law... all of these are hard won western "values." But at the center of this system, is something vastly more important: a basically spiritual vision of the uniqueness and value of the individual first and foremost, and not of the grand abstractions of corporate oligarchs and plunderers, few of whom in the West, unlike Mr. Khodorkovsky, have actually gone to jail for their corruption. Let that be a lesson for contemporary Russians to ponder, for Russia's long historical journey is far from over. And we in the west would do well to remember, that of the modern European nation states, only Britain, France, and Russia can claim to have been around as recognizable nations for a millennium. Spain and the Netherlands came later, Germany in the form of the Holy Roman Empire, rose, disappeared, and only rose again, really, in the 19th century. The same with Italy.

So from this author's point of view, it's high time that the West start learning some of the lessons from Russia, rather than always presuming to teach it. Russia survived - barely - two devastating World Wars and nearly a century of an imported Western cosmological materialism and forcefully imposed atheism; Marxism and Communism were imported, not home-grown. And good old Western "democratic capitalistic" values were behind that importation. The Russians know this; Mr. Putin knows it, after all, he was, as we are constantly reminded, a former member of the Komitet Gozvudarstvenoy Byezhopaznosti, the KGB. They knew that story better than anyone else, except the Wall Street and London bankers themselves.

Somewhere between Mr. Putin and Mr. Khodorkovsky, Russia will find its way. It always has. And it has because, even under Stalin, somehow, it never managed to lose its national spirit and soul.

The West, on the other hand,...well, just ponder for a moment, the following list: Barack Obama, G.W. Bush, Tony Blair, David Cameron, Tony Abbot, Nicholas Sarkozy, M. Hollande, Herman van Rompuy, Angela Merkel, Boris Yeltsin, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Jeb Bush, Mitt Romney, not to mention the Brzezinskis, Kissingers, Nulands... Now ponder the following list: Christine Fernandez de Kirchner, Vladimir Putin....uhm... any other nominations?

See you on the flip side...

    Kordovkosky is just a thief like the rest of the vultures that descended on oil rich Russia when she tried western democracy,seems her people actually believed the rhetoric nato was selling at the time and let her guard down trying to measure up to standards that no one in the west even comes close to meeting. Russia has REFERENDOMS on current political issues for the publics active participation in their government,not leaving important issues up to politicions that might get bought off once in office,kind of like ancient Greece,the “right stuff” of democracies.

    if I may disagree Russian culture is anything but different; which aristocracy was the wealthiest before the Russian revolution?- rhetorical question- if/IF Russian culture has been somehow “saved,” then read Greg Hallet’s “Hitler Was a British Agent” in which he (author) states the Romanov’s deaths were faked (they were subsequently given political asylum in Ireland according to Hallet) or the 1984 edition of the Summers/Mangold “The File on the Tsar,” not the 1992(4?) edition in which the authors refute all of their previously impeccable research (huh?!) but mention the Tsar’s paternal grand –

    if/IF the Russians are different, then I can only think there’s another force behind this (my two very sweet Russian co-workers mistrust Putin’s goals- probably because they were roped into other previous regimes)-

    but I still have hope that Edgar Cayce’s prediction “the hope for the world will emerge out of Russia” may be true-


    • jedi on October 12, 2014 at 10:08 am

      I suspect as well the Tzars assassinations were faked. Although, I wonder why the wealthy landowners were all wiped out during the revolution…a numbing down of the society.
      Or perhaps the knowledge/ threats of nuclear secrets within the Monarch family , the breakaway civilization were in the way of the cultural Marxist, the Frankfort school of gypsies, the destroyers of worlds, the utopions….ufo opiates society run amok..

      Time will tell.
      The genocide that occurred in Katyn Forest another in your face disgusting execution of a people. Hog tied and a bullet to the back of the head. Thats the cultural marxists at work.

        “I suspect as well the Tzars assassinations were faked. Although, I wonder why the wealthy landowners were all wiped out during the revolution”

        easy to explain: the western elites were after their money and they got it, they also manged to get the Romanov money (gosh) but the Romanovs lives were spared; if/IF their deaths were faked and they were all given new identities but with no claims to the wealth (unless they were forced to siphon it off to other sources)-“Anna Anderson” throws a wrench into this- but chances are she was really who she stated to be; but had rogue, absolutely eccentric ‘Anastasia’ been brought back into the fold would’ve blown the Romanov’s cover- so they chose to leave her to rot in her (obviously trauma-induced) own ‘eccentricity’-

        it’s definitely a long complicated story (what aspect of true history isn’t?)-


        • LSM on October 12, 2014 at 12:38 pm

          sorry, I forgot to mention (if Greg Hallet’s sources are correct), the Romanovs were granted exile in Ireland

    There are interesting misunderstandings in Russian history and culture. You may call it difficulties in translation, I’d call it deception. Have you heard Russian word “pravoslavie”? It means “truth glorying”. This is how Russian dominant religious institution is called. You call it Eastern Orthodox. The first name has a straight meaning(measure). The second has no measure, this why it can be interpreted, or distort the phenomenon.
    Nearly a millenium of an imported Western cosmological (so called) Christianity and forcefully imposed atheism; Christianity(has nothing to do with Christ) and Bible were imported, not home-grown. This was an act of aggression. And the term “Pravoslavie” was brought in front as result of resistance to that aggression. Why I did not removed “atheism” from Joseph’s quote? Because priests provide culture in which they present themselves as God’s secretaries, instead of helping people to find their own way to God. This concerns all religious institutions.
    The Bolshevik revolution in 1917 was Russia’s attempt to restore culture in which person can find it’s way to God. Social justice is the direction. There are no social justice, if person can’t work fairly and use results of his work fairly. That’s why religious institutions were used – they discharged social tensions.
    The Revolution itself was organized and made by officers from General Staff(mostly intelligence and counterintelligence), Stalin, Dzerginsky, Uborevich. For the officers it was a response to February Revolution, for Bolsevik group it was a struggle against people like Trotsky. Of course the power firstly got into the hands of people like Trotsky, Sverdlov. But this was inevitable, cause they had money from banksters, information and all kinds of help from British and French embassies. Lenin was a compromise figure until he became clearly a part of Bolshevik group. You can see the whole history of USSR as a struggle between Bosheviks and Trotskists. But only Bolsheviks worked to create a culture in which person can work and study fairly without afraid of being robbed in some way, could find his own way to God. “Bolshevik” is from Russian word “bolshinstvo”, which means majority. Although the term Bolshevik came from RSDRP party inner debates, it’s got later another meaning: to govern state in interests of majority. And form of government got Russia from 1920s when there were no modern industry through WW2 to a country which led Sputnik in 1957.
    I’ve been reading Western media for some time now. And I’ve never seen anything written good about people from Bolshevik group(Stalin, Beria, Ordzhonikidze, Kirov, Dzerzhinsky). But I can always find writings in which people from Trotskists’ group(Trotsky, Tuhhachevsky, Zhukov, Khrushev, Gorbachev) are praising.

    Funny, because 10 years from now I envision drinking beer out of the skull of an oligarch which I’ll buy on ebay. I imagine among his friends, dharma warrior Putin is making similar plans to eradicate the oligarchical families of the west in the same manner they killed off the Romanovs.

    I for one believe the uniqueness of Russian culture stems not just from its long history of Eastern Orthodoxy but even more so to those hardy and resourceful White Russians who used to live along the banks of the Arctic Sea when the climate was temperate but later spread into Europe, Asia, the Americas and the Indian subcontinent as the climate worsened. Interesting that at least two near genocides occurred against the white Russians, carried out by what one could only describe as pathogenic humans– the merciless Mongols invasion and the bolshevik bloodbath (both with ties to the banksters). You just can’t keep a good people down although I imagine the inhuman banksters will try again.

    btw, Dr Farrell, that was a truly eloquent blog.

  7. henry on October 10, 2014 at 4:40 pm

    Speaking of “preparing for Mr.Putin’s downfall”,
    Fulford’s report once mentioned that certain top generals within the Russian military were acting on behalf of Western interests, that they were planning a coup by poisoning Putin, the Western-minded Russian hierarchy were promised that “Russia would become the new financial centre of the world”.

    Similar indication of this Western infiltration are learned from projectcamelot’s interview “Anglo-Saxon mission’, the informer of it was puzzled by the Russian military’s supposed participation in the British elites plan, in provoking the Russians and the Chinese into a military confrontation in the Russian Far East.

    Then, according to a recent ‘cobra’ report, the so called “chimera” group, a supposed secret group within the Western military-industrial complex which is in possession of certain exotic technologies have been infiltrating the Russian military as well.

    These so called “insider information” are ultimately unjustifiable, but their coherence in indicating such scenario maybe something worth to take a notice.

    But for me the most reliable and visible case to indicate that something may be going on in the Russian military and it has something to do with Mr.Putin, is his sacking of former Russian defense chief and replacing him with the current military chief Sergey Shoygu, upon Mr.Putin’s return as the Russian president back in 2012.
    It’s pertinent to add, after Putin assigned Shoygu as the minister of defense, the Russian military did an unprecedented move as the Russians invited the visiting Chinese president to take a tour of its command centre.
    Whatever the damages that was done to Russo-Chinese relations by the previous “pro-West” Russian government, it seems the returned Mr.Putin is meant to avoid such in the future.

    It’s hard to imagine both the possibility and consequence, of what actually happened to Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez, that something similar might have happened to Mr.Putin.
    But what’s clear to me, is there are people, both in the West and within Russia simply ‘hate’ Mr.Putin.

  8. marcos toledo on October 10, 2014 at 1:01 pm

    The problem is that the Western Europeans think we I one of them think we have to use a Chinese term a mandate from heaven to shove our culture down the throats of everyone else on this planet. A trait we share with our fellow educated barbarians the Israel-Arab. Complaining about cultural identity loss well we didn’t care about that when we were doing it to the indigenous people we were conquering and enslaving. As for Mikhail Khodorkovsky he thinks that the West will accept him and his fellow Russian Oligarchs as their deputies and overseers in plantation Russia I say to them they can be always be thrown to the wolves once their usefulness is done.

    • henry on October 11, 2014 at 6:10 pm

      The term “the mandate of Heaven” did not historically apply to relations with foreign countries/cultures but instead was used by the “just” rulers over the “corrupt” ones when a new regime/dynasty overthrows the previous one.

      Arguably, only the original “mandate of Heaven” was “genuine” when the founding kings of Zhou dynasty used it to justify their rebellion against the Shang.

      It’s the only one that’s “genuine” because it was one of historical occasions when “Heaven” genuinely intervened in the surface politics, and it was due to that intervention, the sudden emergence of human sacrifice culture during the Shang period was largely suppressed and replaced with the “humanist” culture of “rites and musics”, which later evolved via Confucius into “Confucianism”.
      That’s the reason why you see the I Ching is said to be “perfected” by the rebellious Zhou king, no he didn’t.

      King Wen obviously had help from somebody in his struggle against the Shang. His advisor with the name of Jiang Ziya was recorded by history chronicles as been sent by “Heaven”, who happens to be the greatest exorcist in entire recorded Chinese history, a Chinese version of Merlin and King Arthur, who also happens to be my great ancestor as well.

      I think Western Europeans like you would be welcomed to visit the Agarthan Capital city, since that’s where the “Heaven” is located, since your vibrational frenquence is more in alignment with “mandate of Heaven”, ofcourse the slaughters and enslavement of other peoples are not the mandate from Heaven, such were the “devil’s act”.
      You can sense that rather than blinded by racial/cultural chauvinism. Others take that behavior as part of their “heritage”. The primitive “barbarians” even think they are embodiment of “divine/god” by subjugating and killing other human beings, Crusaders and Jihadists alike, Nazies and Japanese imperialists alike, skipped the guised excuses, they were all acts of evl, and “mass human sacrifice”.

      It’s time to move onto next level of plane and existence than stuck with the spiritually unevolved ones on the surface.

    Khodorkovsky makes a big wish, and shows exactly who he is beholden to, and exactly who has been backing him — and why he was put in prison in the first place.

    The so-called “Russian oligarch” is just a polite euphemism for Zionist crony capitalist, and there is nothing capitalistic about them.

    Interesting, though, to see him enlisted in the propaganda war; this certainly rachets up Cold War 2.0 by a notch or two. The Cabal (-ah) is trying to make Putin blink — not a very good idea when you are wild-eye crazy to begin with.

    • lazer-eye on October 10, 2014 at 12:35 pm

      Anyone who has lived in Russia for any length of time knows there is corruption at every level o that society, just like in the West. There is no way one can become a billionaire in that society, like Mr. Khodorkovsky, without being corrupt top to bottom. If he thinks the Russian people will be set free by adopting western values, he is even more deluded by ego that I thought..

    • Robert Barricklow on October 10, 2014 at 1:31 pm

      I concur.

  10. loisg on October 10, 2014 at 10:42 am

    So, this Russian oligarch has his company stolen from him by Putin, and then he is jailed because of corruption charges by someone who jails anyone for saying anything negative about him or his policies, but it is ok because, well, it is Putin we are talking about here. I can only imagine the outrage if it was Obama who had done that. Why the need to give Putin a pass on his behavior? Even IF there was corruption within his company, is that a reason to steal it? And did this case go before a court or did Putin just decide this all on his own? I hope the Russian people get a better leader next time when Putin falls, because I agree with this man’s assessment of him, and the oligarchs in that country are probably in agreement as well, for many of them are suffering at Putin’s hand.
    Just my thoughts on Putin…

      Putin is psychotic and anyone who doubts it will get a polonium rod shoved up their arse. They guy is a stone cold killer. This is the bare brass knuckle version of the mob. The western leaders have other people do their dirty work. Same psychotic traits but they have a nice thin velvet glove on their brass knuckles.

      I refer to Bush2 era as “Psycho Dick & his sock puppet dubya” as Cheney was clearly in charge.

      The western leaders are poker players but Putin is playing chess. He is down a few pieces but has scored some nice comebacks and counter attacks.

      Khodorkovsky did not get jailed for corruption. That was just an excuse. He got jailed because he offended the Godfather and he is lucky to have walked away from that alive.

      We will not see Khodorkovsky take over after Putin. We will probably see the Russian equivalent of Michael Corleone. One by one they will retake, by economic means, the eastern Stans and then they will push west. Look for Georgia to mend fences soon.

    A government in which the leader is capable of making the nation independent and reach economic progress at the same time ( without the “interventions” or rather interference from the dominating powers) seems to have a fate of not succeeding, unless it submits. Especially if the leader is in the know about the real agendas. One example is former Pres. Marcos and in his regime, everything was going well under him, then there was sudden anarchy, like what happens in the middle east when somebody wants a government overthrown. the so-called spring.
    Karen Hudes refers to a story about something Marcos did in that time. Another example of how they villainize somebody who is a threat to them..

    “human rights and Western culture values are under assault in virtually every Western country in the name of “multiculturalism”(just ask native Spaniards, for example, of what is happening in their country to their Western values)”
    Really? Tell me more….

    • Dave Walton on October 10, 2014 at 11:04 am

      In the U.K. the Conservative government has indicated it wants to scrap the Human Rights Act (although the HR Convention will still apply), presumably to replace it with a watered-down version bill of rights. In part this is probably in response to the general shift in Europe to the right. Human rights will also be under attack with things like the proposed Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership(TTIP). They may have reasoned that the latter will be incompatible with the former. Endeavours such as fracking may well also be in mind, since challenges under HR case law may be invoked. David Cameron also recently gave an ominous speech whereby he indicated a crackdown on “non-violent extremist” i.e. conspiracy theorists i.e. anyone that counters the official narrative.

      Many Europeans suspect that immigration has longed be used to dilute national culture, along with breaking down of a strong sense of nationalism which will hinder long-term plans of greater integration, a global currency, and greater centralization/control etc. “Multiculturalism” is one of those nice-sounding ideas but, if followed through to its logical conclusion, ends with a monoculture? Or at least a diluted national culture (and identity?). In Wales, for example, there is great concern that the Welsh language is dying out, as little as 20% of the Welsh now speak it on a regular basis. And of course Islam must be mentioned in this context too. I have a number of Muslim friends that I discuss this with on a regular basis. The Muslim demographic is the fastest growing in the U.K., not primarily due to immigration but due to the Islamic cultural tradition of having larger families than Europeans. Furthermore, it came to light recently that much of the meat produce now sold in U.K. supermarkets are halal, without even labelling it as so. One disturbing incident that also recently came to light was the Rotherham Sex scandal. The disturbing thing that came of this was the fear of local officials of pursuing these Asian gangs for being labelled a “racist.”

      I feel that another part of Western culture that has long been under assault is that of the traditional family unit…the basis of ALL cultural and social activity. Some examples are: (1) schools are now more militant with enforcing school attendance. When I was at school that would have been a huge problem since I was rarely there lol
      ; (2) Kids are now (in the U.K.) at school longer, another few years has been added onto their programme (of which they will learn NOTHING); (3) Families have more-and-more accepted the idea of sending the old folk to “care” homes, when traditionally this was a family affair. I used to own a private ambulance company and I can say with confidence that “care” is not a word that should be used; (4) financially speaking (and this has been done subtly over a period of time) two parents now often have to work to provide what one parent’s wages traditional supplied. I think this was by design.

      The above was just a quick glimpse at how the subtle (and sometimes not-so-subtle) impact on how things a changing…

      • Robert Barricklow on October 10, 2014 at 1:28 pm

  13. Robert Barricklow on October 10, 2014 at 8:23 am

    Khodoskovsky reminds me of J.P. Morgan as Rothschild’s agent used to infect America. His so-called Open Russia is taking a page from George Soros’s Open Society. It is to teach how totalitarians can purchase a sheep’s clothing of various styles, all the better to pull the wool over the peoples’ eyes. Putin & others recognize that with a free press the Russian people can & will move in a direction that benefits all Russians, instead of the oligarchical sinister few wolves in sheep’s clothing.
    Look what the Morgans & Rockefellers did for the Americas. Or the Rothschild’s did for the world. That should make anyone shudder with a coldness, that wants nothing of this sort of business. A democracy that comes with the barrel of a gun down one’s throat. It’s just democracy in name only. Who really believes it?

  14. Dave Walton on October 10, 2014 at 6:54 am

    Bravo! Your thoughts on Russia deeply resonate with mine.

    Actually Khodorkovsky’s comments are the type of thing I’ve been expecting to come out from within Russia…and China etc; I have to wonder what “deals” are being struck behind closed doors. I suspect the West is looking for slight fractures of which to exploit. But, as you have pointed out, others can play at those games…

    ” . . . busy, as they have been, to eradicate any sense of the transcendent, of the spiritual, of the moral, and of the individual and of uniqueness in Western culture.”

    This is the most succinct and stirring summary of the situation I’ve ever read.

    “….uhm… any other nominations?”

    Yes. It seems quite appropriate that if the West’s story is to be redeemed, it will be up to the Individuals it has fostered. Therefore I nominate Dr. Joseph P. Farrell, Catherine Austin Fitts, George Ann Hughes, and the rest of us who have the sense to pay attention to them.
