NIKOLAI SOKOLOV AND THE INVESTIGATION INTO THE SLAUGHTER OF THE ROMANOV ROYAL FAMILY

Just a little more than 100 years ago, imperial Russia was rocked by two revolutions, one in February and one in October. And 100 years ago today, no doubt, the Bolshevik criminals were contemplating how to dispose of the Romanov royal family, which had all been arrested and were under constant guard. It was not until July 1918 that Yakov Sverdlov gave the order that they be slaughtered, which had been the theme of Yiddish postcards throughout the reign of Nicholas II. Here is the story of that crime and Nikolai Sokolov, the intrepid Russian investigator who was tasked with proving who killed the Romanovs, where and how they were actually killed and where their mortal remains were hidden.

    TABLE OF CONTENTS NIKOLAI SOKOLOV AND THE INVESTIGATION INTO THE SLAUGHTER OF THE ROMANOV ROYAL FAMILY

    BY MICHAEL WALSH

    Just a little more than 100 years ago, imperial Russia was rocked by two revolutions, one in February and one in October. And 100 years ago today, no doubt, the Bolshevik criminals were contemplating how to dispose of the Romanov royal family, which had all been arrested and were under constant guard. It was not until July 1918 that Yakov Sverdlov gave the order that they be slaughtered, which had been the theme of Yiddish postcards throughout the reign of Nicholas II. Here is the story of that crime and Nikolai Sokolov, the intrepid Russian investigator who was tasked with proving who killed the Romanovs, where and how they were actually killed and where their mortal remains were hidden.

    UNRAVELING THE MYTHS OF GRIGORI RASPUTIN

    BY MATTHEW RAPHAEL JOHNSON, PH.D.

    Perhaps no man has been so maligned and misunderstood as Grigori Rasputin, Here our expert on Slavic studies examines what is real history and what is fake news regarding the life of Rasputin, the “Mad Monk,” who was killed December 30, 1916 by a group of jealous noblemen who were threatened by his influence over Czar Nicholas II and Czarina Alexandra.

    ANOTHER 6 MILLION? THE POGROMS OF ROMANOV RUSSIA

    BY MATTHEW RAPHAEL JOHNSON, PH.D.

    Why did the Bolsheviks revolt in Russia? Why were so many of the revolutionaries Jewish? The version the court historians like to tell is that the oppressive czars had alienated the entire population to the point of open rebellion. The bloody “pogroms” of the czars, of course, are also trotted out to justify the motivations and viciousness of the Bolsheviks. Six million Jews, after all, were being genocided in Ukraine, according to Western newspaper headlines. But, as usual, the truth is far removed from the fiction we see on television or read in history books. The fables of the pogroms, the author insists, are pure fiction.

    THE LENIN-TROTSY-STALIN GENOCIDE MUST NOT BE WHITEWASHED

    BY MATTHEW RAPHAEL JOHNSON, PH.D.

    Far too many Revisionist historians want to ignore the crimes of Josef Stalin and diminish his role in the generation-long massacres of the Russian people during communism’s dark rule. In this article the author reminds us, especially, not to forget Stalin’s attempted genocide of an entire people—the Ukrainians—via his carefully executed terror famine or Holodomor.

    ROBERT OPPENHEIMER: SOVIET AGENT

    BY JOHN WEAR, J.D.

    Robert Oppenheimer has been hailed as a genius, the man who helped America end World War II by creating the atomic bomb. In fact, here at TBR, we view him as he viewed himself, as “the great destroyer,” whose invention allows man to kill millions of innocent people with the push of a button. Worse, he was a traitor to his nation.

    BRITISH DIPLOMATS & THE HOLOCAUST

    BY STEPHEN MITFORD GOODSON

    Partly because they knew of earlier propaganda initiatives, many British officials in the 1940s recognized accusations that the Germans had used homicidal gas chambers to murder mass numbers of Poles and Jews for what they were—bogus wartime propaganda. And they advised against using such outlandish claims for fear their credibility would be ruined.

    GERMANY’S ANTARCTIC EXPEDITION

    BY MARC ROLAND

    Many wild claims have been made about WWII Germany’s polar expeditions, but especially those to Antactica. Here is a short article that explains what is true, what is not—and even asks one unanswerable question. AERIAL PHENOMENA IN THE BIBLE BY COL. LOCHLAINN SEABROOK 56For those who have had a so-called “UFO experience,” it is lifechanging, and many are interested in the subject.
