Alexander Kerensky

Holodomor AvatarAlexander Fyodorovich Kerensky (4th May 1881 – 11th June 1970) was a Jewish lawyer and politician who served as the second Minister-Chairman of the Russian Provisional Government between July and November 1917. Kerensky was born Aron Kurbis in Simbirsk (now Ulyanovsk) from a mixed background. His mother, named Adler, was born in Austria while his biological father was a Jew born in Russia. His mother remarried Fyodor Kerensky a director of the local gymnasium, later promoted to Inspector of public schools who taught Vladimir Ulyanov (Lenin). Alexander Kerensky and Lenin were born on the same day, eleven years apart, in the same provincial town of Simbirsk. Members of the Kerensky and Ulyanov families were close friends. At the end of 1904, Kerensky was jailed for belonging to a violent Marxist militant group. Afterwards he gained a reputation as a defence lawyer in the trials of a number of Marxist terrorists. In 1912 Kerensky was elected to the Fourth Duma as a member of the Trudoviks and in that same year joined the freemasons in order to further factionalise the people against their native leadership (Monarchy). By 1917 Kerensky had become minister of war in the ‘Russian’ Provisional Government and his policies included stripping officers of their mandates and handing over control to Marxists; abolishing the death penalty; and allowed Marxist agitators to be present at the front. Later that year Kerensky became Prime Minister and appointed himself Supreme Commander-in-Chief. He retained his post in the final coalition government in October 1917 until complete control was handed over to the Jewish Bolsheviks. While Kerensky showed no overt supported for either the Bolsheviks or the White Movement in the so called Russian ‘civil war’ his philosophy of “no enemies to the left” greatly empowered the Bolsheviks giving them a free hand to take over the military arm or “voyenka” of the Petrograd and Moscow workers councils. During the Kornilov putsch, an attempted military coup d’état by the then Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Army, General Lavr Kornilov, in August 1917 against Kerensky’s Provisional Government, Kerensky had distributed arms to the Petrograd workers, and by November most of these armed workers had gone over to the Bolsheviks and following the German-led invasion of the Soviet construct in 1941, Kerensky offered his support to Joseph Stalin. Indeed the fact that the native Russian army staged a coup at this early stage indicates their suspicion of alien subversion of the provisional government. Kerensky eventually settled in New York City. He died at his home in New York City in 1970, one of the last surviving major participants in the turbulent events of 1917. The local Russian Orthodox Churches in New York refused to grant Kerensky burial, because of his association with Freemasonry and it saw him as largely responsible for the fall of Russia to the Jewish Bolsheviks. A Serbian Orthodox Church also refused burial. Kerensky’s body was flown to London where he was buried at Putney Vale’s non-denominational cemetery.
“There is only one man who can save the country, and that is Kerensky, for this little half-Jew lawyer has still the confidence of the over-articulate Petrograd mob, who, being armed, are masters of the situation. The remaining members of the Government may represent the people of Russia outside the Petrograd mob, but the people of Russia, being unarmed and inarticulate, do not count. The Provisional Government could not exist in Petrograd if it were not for Kerensky.” – Alfred Knox, the British Military Attaché in Petrograd
