The story begins at Yale,

Skull and Bones, whose initiates fill the ranks of the
global elite. Is Skull and Bones the American branch
Are national and global events manipulated as part of a grand
Hegellian equation, thesis and anti-thesis yielding a
New World Order synthesis?
The evidence and events surrounding the Order of Skull and
Bones will shock you. Read on.
1. The Secret Origins of Skull & Bones
The story begins at Yale, where three threads of
American social history -- espionage, drug smuggling and secret
societies -- intertwine into one.
Elihu Yale was born near Boston, educated in London, and
served with the
British East India Company,
eventually becoming governor of Fort Saint George, Madras,
in 1687. He amassed a great fortune from trade and returned to
England in 1699. Yale became known as quite a
philanthropist; upon receiving a request from the Collegiate School
in Connecticut, he sent a donation and a gift of books. After
subsequent bequests, Cotton Mather suggested the school be
named Yale College, in 1718.
A statue of Nathan Hale stands on Old Campus at Yale
University. There is a copy of that statue in front of the
CIA’s headquarters in Langley, Virginia. Yet another
stands in front of Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts
(where George H.W. Bush (’48) went to prep school and joined
a secret society at age twelve).
Nathan Hale, along with three other Yale graduates, was a
member of the "Culper Ring," one of America’s first
intelligence operations. Established by George Washington, it
was successful throughout the Revolutionary War. Nathan was
the only operative to be ferreted out by the British, and after
speaking his famous regrets, he was hanged in 1776. Ever since the
founding of the Republic, the relationship between Yale
and the "Intelligence Community" has been unique.
In 1823, Samuel Russell established Russell and Company
for the purpose of acquiring opium in Turkey
and smuggling it to China. Russell and Company
merged with the Perkins (Boston)
syndicate in 1830 and became the primary American opium
smuggler. Many of the great American and European fortunes were
built on the "China" (opium) trade.
One of Russell and Company’s Chief of Operations in
Canton was Warren Delano, Jr., grandfather of Franklin
Roosevelt. Other Russell partners included John Cleve
Green (who financed Princeton), Abiel Low (who financed
construction of Columbia), Joseph Coolidge and the Perkins,
Sturgis and Forbes families. (Coolidge’s son organized
the United Fruit company, and his grandson, Archibald C. Coolidge,
was a co-founder of the
Council on Foreign Relations.)
William Huntington Russell (’33), Samuel’s cousin, studied in
Germany from 1831-32. Germany was a hotbed of new ideas. The
"scientific method" was being applied to all forms of human
endeavor. Prussia, which blamed the defeat of its forces by
Napoleon in 1806 on soldiers only thinking about themselves in
the stress of battle, took the principles set forth by John Locke
and Jean Rosseau and created a new educational system.
Johan Fitche, in his "Address to the German People," declared
that the children would be taken over by the State and told what to
think and how to think it.
Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel took over Fitche’s chair
at the University Of Berlin in 1817, and was a
professor there until his death in 1831. Hegel was the
culmination of the German idealistic philosophy school of
To Hegel, our world is a world of reason. The state is
Absolute Reason and the citizen can only become free by worship
and obedience to the state. Hegel called the state the "march
of God in the world" and the "final end". This final end,
Hegel said, "has supreme right against the individual, whose
supreme duty is to be a member of the state." Both fascism
and communism have their philosophical roots in
Hegellianism. Hegellian philosophy was very much
in vogue during William Russell’s time in Germany.
When Russell returned to Yale in 1832, he
formed a senior society with Alphonso Taft (’33). According
to information acquired from a break-in to the "tomb" (the
Skull and Bones meeting hall) in 1876,
"Bones is a chapter of a corps in a
German University.... General Russell, its founder, was
in Germany before his Senior Year and formed a warm friendship
with a leading member of a German society. He brought back with
him to college, authority to found a chapter here."
So class valedictorian William H.
Russell, along with fourteen others, became the founding members
of "The Order of Scull and Bones," later changed to "The
Order of Skull and Bones".
The secretive Order of Skull and Bones exists only
at Yale. Fifteen juniors are "tapped" each year by the seniors
to be initiated into next year’s group. Some say each initiate is
given $15,000 and a grandfather clock. Far from being a campus
fun-house, the group is geared more toward the success of its
members in the post-collegiate world.
The family names on the Skull and Bones roster roll
off the tongue like an elite party list -- Lord, Whitney, Taft, Jay,
Bundy, Harriman, Weyerhaeuser, Pinchot, Rockefeller, Goodyear,
Sloane, Stimson, Phelps, Perkins, Pillsbury, Kellogg, Vanderbilt,
Bush, Lovett and so on.
William Russell went on to become a general and a state
legislator in Connecticut. Alphonso Taft was appointed U.S.
Attorney General, Secretary of War (a post many "Bonesmen"
have held), Ambassador to Austria, and Ambassador to Russia (another
post held by many "Bonesmen"). His son, William Howard
Taft (’87), is the only man to be both President of the United
States and Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.
2. Secrets of the "Tomb"
The Order flourished from the very beginning in spite
of occasional squalls of controversy. There was dissension from some
professors, who didn’t like its secrecy and exclusiveness. And there
was backlash from students, showing concern about the influence "Bones"
was having over Yale finances and the favoritism shown
In October of 1873, Volume 1, Number 1, of The Iconoclast
was published in New Haven. It was only published once and was one
of very few openly published articles on the Order of Skull
From The Iconoclast:
"We speak through a new publication.
because the college press is closed to those who dare to openly
"Out of every class Skull and Bones takes its men.
They have gone out into the world and have become, in many
instances, leaders in society. They have obtained control of
Yale. Its business is performed by them. Money paid
to the college must pass into their hands, and be subject to
their will. No doubt they are worthy men in themselves, but the
many, whom they looked down upon while in college, cannot so far
forget as to give money freely into their hands. Men in
Wall Street complain that the college comes straight to
them for help, instead of asking each graduate for his share.
The reason is found in a remark made by one of Yale’s
and America’s first men: ’Few will give but
Bones men and they care far more for their
society than they do for the college....’
"Year by year the deadly evil is growing. The society was never
as obnoxious to the college as it is today, and it is just this
ill-feeling that shuts the pockets of non-members. Never before
has it shown such arrogance and self-fancied superiority. It
grasps the College Press and endeavors to rule it all. It
does not deign to show its credentials, but clutches at power
with the silence of conscious guilt.
"To tell the good which Yale College has done
would be well nigh impossible. To tell the good she might do
would be yet more difficult. The question, then, is reduced to
this -- on the one hand lies a source of incalculable good -- on
the other a society guilty of serious and far-reaching crimes.
It is Yale College against Skull and Bones!!
We ask all men, as a question of right, which should be allowed
At first, the society held its meetings
in hired halls. Then in 1856, the "tomb", a vine-covered,
windowless, brown-stone hall was constructed, where to this day the
"Bonesmen" hold their "strange, occultish"
initiation rites and meet each Thursday and Sunday.
On September 29, 1876, a group calling itself "The Order of
File and Claw" broke into the Skull and Bones’
holy of holies. In the "tomb" they found lodge-room 324
"fitted up in black velvet, even the walls being covered with
the material." Upstairs was lodge-room 322, "the ’sanctum sanctorium’
of the temple... furnished in red velvet" with a pentagram on
the wall. In the hall are "pictures of the founders of Bones at
Yale, and of members of the Society in Germany, when the
chapter was established here in 1832." The raiding party found
another interesting scene in the parlor next to room 322.
From "The Fall Of Skull And Bones":
"On the west wall, hung among other
pictures, an old engraving representing an open burial vault, in
which, on a stone slab, rest four human skulls, grouped about a
fools cap and bells, an open book, several mathematical
instruments, a beggar’s scrip, and a royal crown. On the arched
wall above the vault are the explanatory words, in Roman
letters, ’We War Der Thor, Wer Weiser, Wer Bettler Oder,
Kaiser?’ and below the vault is engraved, in German
characters, the sentence; ’Ob Arm, Ob Beich, im Tode gleich.’
The picture is accompanied by a card on which is written, ’From
the German Chapter. Presented by D. C. Gilman of D. 50’."
Daniel Coit Gilman (’52), along
with two other "Bonesmen," formed a troika which still
influences American life today. Soon after their initiation in
Skull and Bones, Daniel Gilman, Timothy Dwight
(’49) and Andrew Dickinson White (’53) went to study
philosophy in Europe at the University of Berlin. Gilman
returned from Europe and incorporated Skull and Bones
as Russell Trust, in 1856, with himself as Treasurer
and William H. Russell as President. He spent the next
fourteen years in New Haven consolidating the order’s power.
Gilman was appointed Librarian at Yale in 1858.
Through shrewd political maneuvering, he acquired funding for
Yale’s science departments (Sheffield Scientific School)
and was able to get the Morrill Land Bill introduced
in Congress, passed and finally signed by President Lincoln,
after being vetoed by President Buchanan.
This bill, "donating public-lands for State College for agriculture
and sciences", is now known as the Land Grant College Act.
Yale was the first school in America to get the federal land scrip
and quickly grabbed all of Connecticut’s share at the time. Pleased
by the acquisitions, Yale made Gilman a
Professor of Physical Geography.
Daniel was the first President of the University of
California. He also helped found, and was the first
president of, John Hopkins.
Gilman was first president of the Carnegie Institution
and involved in the founding of the Peabody, Slater and
Russell Sage Foundations.
His buddy, Andrew D. White, was the first president of
Cornell University (which received all of New York’s share
of the Land Grant College Act), U.S. Minister to Russia, U.S.
Ambassador to Berlin and first president of the American Historical
Association. White was also Chairman of the American
delegation to the first Hague Conference in 1899, which established
an international judiciary.
Timothy Dwight, a professor at Yale Divinity School,
was installed as president of Yale in 1886. All presidents since,
have been either "Bonesmen" or directly tied to
the Order and its interests.
The Daniel/Gilman/White trio was also responsible for the
founding of the American Economic Association, the American Chemical
Society and the American Psychological Association. Through their
influences on John Dewey and Horace Mann, this trio
continues to have an enormous impact on education today.
3. Networks of Power
In his book "America’s
Antony C. Sutton
outlined the Order of Skull and Bones’
ability to establish vertical and horizontal "chains of influence"
that ensured the continuity of their conspiratorial schemes.
The Whitney-Stimson-Bundy links represent the "vertical
W. C. Whitney (’63), who married Flora Payne (of the
Standard Oil Payne dynasty), was Secretary of the Navy. His attorney
was a man named Elihu Root. Root hired Henry Stimson
(’88), out of law school. Stimson took over from Root as
Secretary of War in 1911, appointed by fellow Bonesman William
Howard Taft. Stimson later became Coolidge’s
Governor-General of the Philippine Islands, Hoover’s
Secretary of State, and Secretary of War during the Roosevelt
and Truman administrations.
Hollister Bundy (’09) was Stimson’s special assistant
and point man in the Pentagon for the Manhattan
Project. His two sons, also members of Skull and Bones,
were William Bundy (’39) and McGeorge Bundy (’40) --
both very active in governmental and foundation affairs.
The two brothers, from their positions in the CIA, the
Department of Defense and the State Department, and as Special
Assistants to Presidents Kennedy and Johnson,
exercised significant impact on the flow of information and
intelligence during the Vietnam "War."
William Bundy went on to be editor of Foreign Affairs, the
influential quarterly of the
Council on Foreign Affairs
(CFR). McGeorge became president of the Ford Foundation.
Another interesting group of "Bonesmen" is the
Harriman/Bush crowd. Averil Harriman (’13), "Elder
Statesman" of the Democratic Party, and his brother Roland
Harriman (’17) were very active members. In fact, four of
Roland’s fellow "Bonesmen" from the class of 1917 were
directors of Brown Brothers, Harriman, including Prescott
Bush (’17), George Bush’s dad.
Since the turn of the century, two investment bank firms --
Guaranty Trust and Brown Brothers, Harriman -- were both
dominated by members of Skull and Bones. These two
firms were heavily involved in the financing of Communism and
Bonesman share an affinity for the Hegellian ideas
of the historical dialectic, which dictates the use of controlled
conflict -- thesis versus anti-thesis -- to create a pre-determined
synthesis. A synthesis of their making and design, where the state
is absolute and individuals are granted their freedoms based on
their obedience to the state -- a
New World Order.
Funding and political maneuvering on the part of "Bonesmen"
and their allies helped the Bolsheviks prevail in Russia. In defiance of federal laws, the cabal financed
industries, established banks and developed oil and mineral deposits
in the fledgling U.S.S.R.
Later, Averil Harriman, as minister to Great Britain in
charge of Lend-Lease for Britain and Russia, was responsible for
shipping entire factories into Russia. According to some
researchers, Harriman also oversaw the transfer of nuclear
secrets, plutonium and U. S. dollar printing plates to the
In 1932, the Union Banking Corporation of New York City had
enlisted four directors from the (’17) cell and two Nazi
bankers associated with Fritz Thyssen, who had been financing
Hitler since 1924.
Bush: The Unauthorized Biography":
"President Franklin Roosevelt’s
Alien Property Custodian, Leo T. Crowley, signed
Vesting Order Number 248 [11/17/42] seizing the property of
Prescott Bush under the Trading with Enemy Act. The
order, published in obscure government record books and kept out
of the news, Note #4 explained nothing about the Nazis
involved; only that the Union Banking Corporation was run
for the ’Thyssen family’ of ’Germany and/or Hungary’ --
’nationals ... of a designated enemy country.’
"By deciding that Prescott Bush and the other directors
of the Union Banking Corporation were legally
’front men for the Nazis’, the government avoided
the more important historical issue: In what way ’were Hitler’s
Nazis themselves hired, armed, and instructed by’ the New York
and London clique of which Prescott Bush was an executive
"4. New York Times, December 16, 1944, ran a
five-paragraph page 25 article on actions of the New York
State Banking Department. Only the last sentence refers to
the Nazi bank, as follows: ’The Union Banking
Corporation, 39 Broadway, New York, has received authority to
change its principal place of business to 120 Broadway.’
"The Times omitted the fact that the Union Banking
Corporation had been seized by the government for trading
with the enemy, and the fact that 120 Broadway was the
address of the government’s Alien Property Custodian."
After the war, Prescott went on
to become a U. S. Senator from Connecticut and favorite golfing
partner of President Eisenhower. Prescott claims
responsibility for getting Nixon into politics and takes
personal credit for bringing Dick on board as Ike’s
running mate in 1952.
4. Name Roster of the Secret Establishment
There were so many "Yalies" in the OSS that
Yale’s drinking tune, the "Whiffenpoof Song",
became an "unofficial" song of the OSS. Many in the
OSS were "Bonesmen" or belonged to the
other Yale senior societies.
Robert Lovett (’18), Harriman’s childhood friend, had
been tapped into Skull & Bones by Prescott Bush’s
cell of ’17 and was a director at Brown Brothers, Harriman.
Again, from "
Bush: The Unauthorized Biography":
"On October 22, 1945, Secretary of
War Robert Patterson created the Lovett Committee,
chaired by Robert A. Lovett, to advise the government on
the post-World War II organization of U.S. intelligence
activities.... The new agency would ’consult’ with the armed
forces, but it must be the sole collecting agency in the field
of foreign espionage and counterespionage. The new agency should
have an independent budget, and its appropriations should be
granted by Congress without public hearings. Lovett
appeared before the Secretaries of State, War, and Navy on
November 14, 1945.... Lovett pressed for a virtual
resumption of the wartime Office of Strategic Services (OSS)....
The CIA was established in 1947 according to the
prescription of Robert Lovett, of Jupiter Island."
Gaddis Smith, a history professor
at Yale, said, "Yale has influenced the
Central Intelligence Agency more than any other
university, giving the CIA the atmosphere of a class
reunion." And "Bonesman" have been foremost among the
"spooks" building the CIA’s "haunted house."
F. Trubee Davison (’18) was Director of Personnel at the
CIA in the early years. Some of the other "Bonesmen"
connected with the intelligence community are:

Ever since Nixon re-established
America’s political relationship with China, many of
our ambassadors to that country have been Bonesmen,
including George Bush, the first Chief U. S. Liaison Officer
to the Peoples Republic of China.
5. China and the Opium Wars
Why all this interest in China? Well, China, among other things, is one of the largest
producers and users of opiates in the world.
For a while, in the 1800s, the Yankee Clippers in
Connecticut and Massachusetts were the fastest ships on the ocean.
Speed was crucial to the opium trade; whoever made the trip
from Turkey/India to Macao/Hong Kong/Shanghai
first got the most for their goods.
During the Opium Wars, the U.S. chose to stand on the
sidelines and cheer for the English and French, knowing that treaty
obligations would bring the U.S. a share in the spoils.
Russell and Company was at times the only trading house
operating in Canton and used the opportunity to
developed strong commercial ties and handsome profits.
Powerful national interests were behind the drug trade,
because American traders were badly in need of some article the
Chinese would buy, since by this time the seal breeding
grounds had been nearly wiped out. If the Chinese had not bought
opium from Americans, then United States imports
of silk, porcelain and tea would have to paid in precious coin,
which was in short supply. In 1843, when the Port of Shanghai
was opened, Russell and Co. was one of its earliest
In 1903, Yale Divinity School set up a program of
schools and hospitals in China. Mao
Zedong was among the staff. During the intrigues of China
in the 1930s and ’40s, American intelligence called upon the
resources of "Yale in China", and George Bush’s cousin
and fellow "Bonesman" Reuben Holden.
After stints as UN Ambassador and Chairman of the Republican
National Committee for the beleaguered Richard Nixon, George Bush
was sent to look after the "China trade". The
Bush family is still very much involved in the
economic activities of "Red" China.
Many researchers contend that George Bush has been with
CIA since the early 1950s, and that one of his jobs was
to consolidate and co-ordinate the worldwide narcotics industry,
the largest industry on Earth. Some say that one of the reasons
behind the Vietnam "Police Action" was a cover for the
consolidation of the "Golden Triangle".
6. The War on Drugs: An "Intellectual Fraud"
Before the Vietnam "War", the Golden Triangle was
run by French Intelligence and Corsican mobsters. After the
French bailed out and America moved in, the triangle was run by
U.S. intelligence, with aid from Sicilian mobsters.
This narcotics network is well documented in "The Politics of
Heroin in S. E. Asia" by Alfred McCoy, "The Great
Heroin Coup" by Henrik Kruger and "Double-Cross"
by Sam and Chuck Giancana.
Vice-President George Bush, as Chairman of President
Reagan’s cabinet-level working group and as Director of the
National Narcotics Interdiction System, was the highest U. S.
governmental official involved in the "war on drugs".
Frances Mullen, Jr., former head of the Drug Enforcement
Agency (DEA), called Bush’s efforts "an
intellectual fraud" and "a liability rather than an asset". Soon
after these statements, Mullen resigned and the resultant
General Accounting Office (GAO) report was buried.
In July, 1985, the suppressed GAO paper
reported that there were,
"no benefits from the National
Narcotics Border Interdiction System, directed by George
Bush. In fact, the overall effect was to encourage
Monika Jensen-Stevenson, a "60
Minutes" producer, quit her job after the CBS news program refused
to air the story she had uncovered relating to the covert drug
trade. Her book, "Kiss The Boys Goodbye", details how our
intelligence community used the apparatus of the POW/MIA
governmental agencies as a cover for the trafficking of
opiates from the "Golden Triangle".
President Reagan appointed Reform Party founder and Texas
billionaire Ross Perot to the President’s Advisory Council
on Foreign Intelligence. Reagan made Perot a
special presidential investigator, looking into America’s POW
and MIAs from the Vietnam "War".
Ross took the job to heart and spent considerable time and
money in pursuit of the quest. He was given special clearance and
access. He asked questions and interviewed everyone he could find.
From "Kiss The Boys Goodbye":
"Relations between Bush and
Perot had gone downhill ever since the Vice-President had
asked Ross Perot how his POW/MIA investigations
’Well, George, I go in looking for prisoners,’ said
Perot, ’but I spend all my time discovering the
government has been moving drugs around the world and is
involved in illegal arms deals.... I can’t get at the prisoners
because of the corruption among our own people.’
"This ended Perot’s official access to the highly
classified files as a one-man presidential investigator. ’I have
been instructed to cease and desist,’ he had informed the
families of missing men early in 1987."
The wholesale importation of cocaine
into the U.S. during "Iran/Contra" is also well
documented. George Bush, is known "to be in the loop"
with many of the players keeping in contact directly with his
Also, there has been much speculation as to the use of the off-shore
rigs, pipelines and other assets of Zapata Offshore
being used for narcotic trans-shipments.
Narcotics such as cocaine and heroin cannot be manufactured
without the precursor chemicals. One of the largest makers of these
precursor chemicals is the Eli Lilly Company of
Indianapolis, Indiana. The Quayle family is a large
stockholder, and George Bush has been on the Board of
Directors. Eli Lilly is also the company that first
synthesized LSD for the CIA.
7. George Bush, Skull & Bones and the JFK Assassination
Rodney Stich’s book "Defrauding America" tells of a "deep-cover
CIA officer" assigned to a counter-intelligence unit,
code-named Pegasus. This unit "had tape-recordings of
plans to assassinate Kennedy" from a tap on the phone
of J. Edgar Hoover. The people on the tapes were "[Nelson]
Dulles, [Lyndon] Johnson of Texas, George Bush
and J. Edgar Hoover."
Could George Bush be involved in the JFK assassination?
In 1963, Bush was living in Houston, busily carrying out his
duties as president of the Zapata Offshore oil company.
He denied the existence of a note sent by the FBI’s
J. Edgar Hoover to "Mr. George Bush of the CIA." When
news of the note surfaced, the CIA first said they
never commented on employment questions, but later relented said
yes, a "George Bush" was mentioned in the note, but
that it was "another" George Bush, not the man who
took office in the White House in 1988.
Some intrepid reporters tracked down the "other" George Bush and
discovered that he was just a lowly clerk who had shuffled papers
for the CIA for about six months. He never received any interagency
messages from anybody at the FBI, let alone the Queen Mary.
It is also worth noting that a CIA code word for Bay of Pigs was
Operation Zapata, and that two of the support vessels were named
Barbara and Houston.
Many say that George Bush was high up on the CIA ladder at the time,
running proprietorial vehicles and placed in a position of command,
responsible for many of the Cubans recruited into "service" at the
time. All through the Iran-Contra affair, Felix Rodriguez, the man
who captured and had Che Guevara killed for the CIA, always seemed
to call Bush’s office first.
From The Realist (Summer, 1991):
"Bush was working with the
now-famous CIA agent, Felix Rodriguez, recruiting right-wing
Cuban exiles for the invasion of Cuba. It was Bush’s
CIA job to
organize the Cuban community in Miami for the invasion.... A
newly discovered FBI document reveals that George Bush was
directly involved in the 1963 murder of President John Kennedy.
The document places marksmen by the CIA. Bush at that time lived
in Texas. Hopping from Houston to Miami weekly, Bush spent 1960
and ’61 recruiting Cubans in Miami for the invasion....
"George Bush claims he never worked for the CIA until he was
appointed Director by former Warren Commission director and then
president Jerry Ford in 1976. Logic suggests that is highly
unlikely. Of course, Bush has a company duty to deny being in
the CIA. The CIA is a secret organization. No one ever admits to
being a member. The truth is that Bush has been a top
official since before the 1961 invasion of Cuba, working with
Felix Rodriguez. Bush may deny his actual role in the
1959, but there are records in the Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba
that expose Bush’s role..."
On the Watergate tapes, June 23, 1972,
referred to in the media as the ’smoking gun’ conversation,
and his Chief of Staff, H.R. Haldeman, were discussing how to stop
the FBI investigation into the CIA Watergate burglary. They were
worried that the investigation would expose their connection to ’the
Bay of Pigs thing.’ Haldeman, in his book "The Ends of Power",
reveals that Nixon always used code words when talking about the
1963 murder of JFK. Haldeman said Nixon would always
refer to the
assassination as ’the Bay of Pigs’.
On that transcript we find Nixon discussing the role of George
Bush’s partner, Robert Mosbacher, as one of the Texas fundraisers
for Nixon. On the tapes Nixon keeps referring to the ’Cubans’ and
the ’Texans.’ The ’Texans’ were Bush, Mosbacher and
Baker. This is
another direct link between Bush and evidence linking Nixon and
to the Kennedy assassination."
8. Motives for the Conspiracy
So, why would an intelligence agency/secret society want to smuggle
drugs and assassinate JFK?
Well, they make a lot of money, and they garner intelligence assets
through their participation. There’s also the rationale that the
world is a seamy and unseemly place, and if you’re going to be the
’big boy’ on the block, you better know what’s going on. And what
better way of knowing than by running it yourself? There are also
some who theorize that the covert drug trade fits with plans to
destabilize American families and society. Through demoralizing and
fracturing the body politic, they can impose their will using
psychological warfare and the political alchemy of the Hegellian
James Shelby Downard’s article, "Sorcery, Sex, Assassination and the
Science of Symbolism ," an underground classic, links American
historical events with a wild, numerological, grand occult plan "to

was designed to show "their superiority" and "our futility".
There have been studies that show a correlation between the JFK
assassination and the rise in violence in society, distrust of
government and other extensions of social ills.
9. The Illuminati: Subverting the Body Politic
Why this attack against our body politic?
In 1785, a bolt of lightning struck a courier en route to Paris from
Frankfort-on-the-Main. A tract written by Adam Weishaupt, founder of
the Illuminati, "Original Shift in Days of Illuminations," was
recovered from the dead messenger, containing the secret society’s
long-range plan for "The
New World Order through world revolution".
The Bavarian Government outlawed the society and in 1787 published
the details of The Illuminati conspiracy in "The Original Writings
of the Order and Sect of the Illuminati."
In Adam Weishaupt’s own words:
"By this plan, we shall direct all
mankind in this manner. And, by the simplest means, we shall set
all in motion and in flames. The occupations must be so allotted
and contrived that we may, in secret, influence all political
There is disagreement among scholars as
to whether or not the Illuminati survived its banishment.
Nevertheless, the group had been quite successful in attracting
members and had allied itself with the extensive Masonic networks.
The Illuminati was publicly founded May 1, 1776 at the
University of Ingolstadt by Weishaupt, Professor of Canon Law. It was a very
"learned" society; Weishaupt drew the earliest members of his new
order from among his students.
On December 5, 1776, students at William and Mary College founded a
secret society, Phi Beta Kappa. A second chapter was formed, at
Yale, in 1780. The anti-Masonic movement in the United States during
the 1820s held groups such as Phi Beta Kappa in a bad light. Because
of pressure, the society went public. This is noted by some
researchers as the direct cause of the appearance of Yale’s
Skull and Bones.
In "The Cyclopedia Of Fraternities", a genealogical chart of general
Greek-Letter college fraternities in the United States, shows Phi
Beta Kappa as "the parent of all the fraternal systems in [American]
higher education." There is only one "side" lineal descendant: the
Yale chapter of 1780. The line then continues to
Skull and Bones in
1832, and on through the other "only at Yale" senior societies,
Scroll & Key and Wolf’s Head.
Phi Beta Kappa is the "first three Greek letters, for ’Philosophia Biou Kubernetes’ or ’Love of wisdom, the helmsman of life’." A
homophone is scull, a quick, gliding boat and part of Skull & Bones
John Robison, a professor of natural philosophy at Edinburgh
University in Scotland and a member of a Freemason Lodge, said that
he was asked to join the Illuminati. After study, he concluded the
purposes of the Illuminati were not for him.
In 1798, he published a book called "Proofs of a Conspiracy":
"An association has been formed for
the express purpose of rooting out all the religious
establishments and overturning all the existing governments....
the leaders would rule the World with uncontrollable power,
while all the rest would be employed as tools of the ambition of
their unknown superiors."
"Proofs of A Conspiracy" was sent to
Responding to the sender of the book with a letter, the
president said he was aware the Illuminati were in America. He
felt that the Illuminati had "diabolical tenets" and that their
object was "a separation of the People from their government."
In "Proofs Of A Conspiracy",
printed the ceremony of initiation of the "Regent degree" in
Illuminism. In it,
"a skeleton is pointed out to him [the initiate],
at the feet of which are laid a crown and a sword. He is asked
’whether that is the skeleton of a king, nobleman or a beggar.’ As
he cannot decide, the president of the meeting says to him, ’The
character of being a man is the only one that is importance’".
This is, essentially, the same as the writing in the
Skull & Bones
"Wer war der Thor, wer Weiser,
Bettler oder Kaiser? Ob Arm, ob Reich, im Tode gleich."
"Who was the fool, who the wise man,
beggar or king? Whether poor or rich, all’s the same in death."
10. Skull & Bones = Illuminati?
Is the Order of the Skull & Bones part of
When a person is initiated into Skull & Bones, they are given a new
name, similar to the practice of the Illuminati. And many recorded
Illuminati members can be shown to have contact and/or strong
influences with many of the professors that taught "Bonesmen" in
When a secret society conspires against the sovereignty of a king,
they need to organize, raise funds, make their plans operational,
and hopefully bring them to fruition.
Could we have in the United States a secret society that has used
the "National Security State" as a cover for their nefarious plans?
Bush: The Unauthorized Biography":
"That September , Robert
Lovett replaced Marshall as secretary of defense. Meanwhile,
Harriman was named director of the Mutual Security Agency,
making him the U.S. chief of the Anglo-American military
alliance. By now, Brown Brothers, Harriman was everything but
"A central focus of the Harriman security regime in Washington
(1950-53) was the organization of covert operations and
’psychological warfare.’ Harriman, together with his lawyers and
business partners, Allen and John Foster Dulles, wanted the
government’s secret services to conduct extensive propaganda
campaigns and mass-psychology experiments within the U.S.A., and
paramilitary campaigns abroad....
"The Harriman security regime created the Psychological Strategy
Board (PSB) in 1951. The man appointed director of the
Gordon Gray.... Gordon’s brother, R.J. Reynolds chairman
Gray Jr., was also a naval intelligence officer, known around
Washington as the ’founder of operational intelligence.’ Gordon
Gray became a close friend and political ally of Prescott Bush;
and Gray’s son became for Prescott’s son, George, his lawyer and
the shield of his covert policy."
So you have the Whitney/Stimson/Bundy
clan and the Harriman/Bush boys wielding a tremendous amount of
influence on the political, economic and social affairs of America
and the world. Then you have Prescott Bush’s buddy Richard Nixon as
an activist vice-president. Then, a nation-chilling assassination,
some time under LBJ with the Bundy boys keeping things in line, then
Nixon as President with "Bonesmen" aides Ray Price (’51) and
A. Moore. Some time out for a
president, followed by Prescott’s son as an activist vice-president
under Reagan. Next, we get a Skull and Bones president who declares
a "New World Order" while beating up on his business partner,
After twelve years of Republican administrations, Bush passes the
reins to his drug smuggling buddy from Arkansas, Bill Clinton, who
studied at Yale Law School. According to some researchers,
was recruited as a CIA operative while a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford.
Could this be the "old Hegallian historical dialectic process"?
11. World History: Plan or Accident?
Will we get another failed Democratic administration? A scandal as
disgraceful as Nixon’s fall? When Robert P. Johnson (William Barr)
told Clinton in a bunker in Arkansas that,
"you are our fair-haired boy, but
you do have competition for the job you seek. We would never put
all our eggs in one basket. You and your state have been our
greatest asset.... Mr. Casey wanted me to pass on to you, that
unless you fuck up and do something stupid, you are number one
on our short list for shot at the job you always wanted."
So, you have William Casey --
Director, George Bush’s campaign manager and Sovereign Knight of
Malta -- speaking through the proxy of George Bush’s last Attorney
General to George’s rival in the 1992 federal elections. Is it all
just a show and sham for U.S. hoi polloi?
Perhaps so, if there exists the type of control over the electoral
process as told by Mae Brussell and the suppressed book "VoteScam,"
written by Jim and Ken Collier:
"...Your vote and mine may now be a
meaningless bit of energy directed by preprogrammed
computers-which can be fixed to select certain pre-ordained
candidates and leave no footprints or paper trail.
"In short, computers are covertly stealing your vote.
"--For almost three decades the American vote has been subject
to government-sponsored electronic theft.
"--The vote has been stolen from you by a cartel of federal
"national security" bureaucrats, who include higher-ups in the
Central Intelligence Agency, political party leaders,
Congressmen, co-opted journalists -- and the owners and managers
-- of the major Establishment news media, who have decided in
concert that how America’s votes are counted, by whom they are
counted and how the results are verified and delivered to the
public is, as one of them put it, ’Not a proper area of
"--By means of an unofficial private corporation named News
Election Service (NES), the Establishment press has actual
physical control of the counting and dissemination of the vote,
and it refuses to let the public know how it is done."
Is the American electorate subjected to
cyclic propaganda, pre-selected candidates and winners, and
psychological warfare to alienate Americans from the institutions
established to serve them by the Constitution? Are the Democratic
and Republican National Parties used for a Hegellian experiment in
Pamela Churchill Harriman, Averil’s wife, is one of the Democratic
Party’s biggest fund-raisers. She once gave Bill a job as director
of her "PAM PAC" when he was defeated for governor in 1980.
paid her back by appointing her as Ambassador to France.
Another Harriman/Bush friend, Eugene Stetson (’34), was an assistant
manager for Prescott Bush at Brown Brothers, Harriman’s New York
office. He organized the H. Smith Richardson Foundation. The
foundation, in the late 1950s, participated in the MKULTRA,
CIA’s domestic covert psychological warfare operation. The
Richardson Foundation helped to finance the testing of psychotropic
drugs, including LSD, at Bridgewater Hospital in Massachusetts, the
center of some of the most brutal MK-ULTRA experiments.
During the Iran-Contra operations, the H. Smith Richardson
Foundation was a "private donors steering committee," working with
the National Security Council to co-ordinate the Office of Public
Diplomacy. This was an effort to propagandize in favor of and run
cover for the Iran-Contra operations, and to coordinate published
attacks on opponents of the program.
The H. Smith Richardson Foundation also runs the Center for Creative
Leadership at Langley to "train leaders of the
CIA," as well as
another center near Greensboro, North Carolina, that trains CIA and
Secret Service Agents. Almost everyone who achieves the military
rank of general also gets this training.
This is just the tip of an iceberg. You also have:
suppressed history and technology
profitable partnerships with brutal dictators
the involvement of the
Knights of Malta
secret societies for teens
magic and more...
All spinning the dark threads in the web of
conspiracy that our spinning blue ball has gotten caught in.
We’ve got a whole new crop of "Bonesmen" coming up, including
George H.W. Bush’s son George W. Bush (’68), Governor of Texas.
When Don Schollander (’68), the Olympic gold-medalist and only known
Skull and Bones member living in Portland, was contacted by
Willamette Week reporter John Schrang regarding his involvement in
the Order, he said, "It’s really something I can’t talk about."
Not wouldn’t, but "couldn’t".
In wake of Antony Sutton’s first ground-breaking exposes of
Order, the Sterling Library at Yale has refused to allow any other
researchers access to the Russell Trust papers.
Daniel Gilman, like most Bonesmen, makes no mention of
Skull & Bones
or the Russell Trust in his memoirs or biographies.
So, are we all just ’fodder" for a secret society with satanic
overtones that is attempting to form a one world government with
themselves at the helm? Or is the Order of Skull and Bones just a
bunch of frat boys from Yale? Wanna bet your future on it?
