Other experts claim that Rasputin's death was organised by the British secret service. They wanted him out of the way to make sure Russia fought against Germany and Austria and took pressure away from France, UK and it's allies.
he was painted evil by the Russian nobility because he became Alexandras favorite because he was able t control the princes hemophilia and was on the fast track to be the thrones right hand man its like the Donald in todays America the democant communist have no control so paint him black
Rasputin was a member of a sect called the "Khlyst' (хлысть)", meaning "whip", not "killists".
Much more importantly, it is now widely know that Yusupov exaggerated his involvement in the killing of Rasputin and almost certainly fired only the first shot of three that eventually killed the man. The second was fired by an accomplice of Yusupov almost immediately afterwards and both were fired within the room in which they were all drinking. One bullet entered his abdomen and badly damaged his liver (1st shot) and the other entered a kidney (2nd shot). The third and fatal shot was almost certainly delivered several minutes later by a British Secret Service agent called Oswald Rayner using a service revolver fired to Rasputin's head from the front when he was lying on his back near an entrance to the palace gate where he had probably been carried to be whisked away in a waiting car. The third bullet was a different calibre to that of the first two bullets and exactly matches the type of weapon carried by SIS agents of the time. Convincing documentary and other evidence has been found that supports this theory whilst Rayner is known to have been in the palace on the night of the murder. It may be that the body was dumped in the river after the killing but the liquid in the lungs may just have been wine that had 'gone down the wrong way' - I don't know.
The British and French governments were terrified that the Russians were being talked into pulling out of WW1 by Rasputin, something which would have freed up around 350,000 extra German troops for the western front and this could have changed the course of the whole war, so the SIS cell in Moscow, (forerunner of MI6), planned what was probably a rogue operation to rid themselves of a threat to national security.
The SIS codename for Rasputin was 'Dark Forces'. Oswald Rayner burned all of his papers shortly before his death to try to keep the operation secret.
RASPUTIN,S KARMIC LIFE SPAN INITIALLY WAS LONGER THAN HIS JOHNSON,BUT DUE TO HIS PERCHANT FOR DEBACERY,THAT CHANGED THE OUTCOME.

They did laced cakes with the cyanide, which was why he was not poisoned as easily (cyanide theoretically binds sugar)- also is he had from boozing lowered acidity in stomach, the amount needed to do the dead would have to be slightly higher than normal. Also he was left alone, who knows how many he consumed instead of throwing it out of the window. I think that the poison survival is possible. The first round of shooting might just mean that the shooter was shooting without any vodka (not well). I am extremely hopeful that there really was water in lungs though as that would have been so amazing as proof that some humans are like cockroaches
"Questioner: Is there anyone in our history that is commonly known who went to a fourth-density self-service or negative type planet or who will go there?
Ra: I am Ra. The number of entities thus harvested is small. However, a few have penetrated the eighth level which is only available from the opening up of the seventh through the sixth. Penetration into the eighth or intelligent infinity level allows a mind/body/spirit complex to be harvested if it wishes at any time/space during the cycle.
Questioner: How did Taras Bulba, Genghis Khan, and Rasputin get harvested prior to the harvest?
Ra: I am Ra. It is the right/privilege/duty of those opening consciously the gate to intelligent infinity to choose the manner of their leaving of the density. Those of negative orientation who so achieve this right/duty most often choose to move forward in their learn/teaching of service to self."
You're welcome. See the Ra Material. Haven't you read the Handbook? It reads like stereo instructions.
This is an aside regarding body odors and such during those times and other times, particularly of the Victorian times. The makeup that many high society women wore, as well as prostitutes, were made from stuff that had horrible odors. Despite this, they enjoyed oodles of sizzling, sexy parties. Go figure.
Grigori Yefimovich was a strange and wild character from the deep Siberia. He was debauched, but not guilty of murder. Rasputin was his nickname "Raspútnii" (Depraved). But you better not use it with the tsar Nikolai II, who in his diaries (wrote them in English) referred to him as 'Our dear friend' or 'Grigori'. So,l old Gregor was a debauched and half mad guy with some influence on the imperial family. But nothing brutal like 'bloody Nikolai' himself, or a small grey character who from 1881-1905 really kept Russia under an iron hand, turned it into a police-state, religiously convinced of man as evil, a gloomy 20 year-period after revolution: Konstantin Pobedonóstsev. That was some brilliant statesman, but crazy Rasputin got straddled with the fame of the bad guy.
