This is page two of my discussion on the Alex Jones film Dark Secrets: Inside Bohemian Grove. If you were linked here by mistake, please refer to page one of this article, which contains the introduction.
The Bohemian Club, as it's known today, was founded in 1873 in San Francisco in Northern California. Many of the club's original annuls, dating back to before the turn of the century, admit that local artists, writers, newspapermen, you name it, wanted a place away from the so-called backwardsness of the West coast, the Judeo Christian ethic. They found that place an hour and a half north of San Francisco, outside of the tiny town of Monte Rio. Their annuls even admit an obsession with the occult and what they called "druid rituals."
The Bohemian Club was actually founded a year earlier in 1872 as an avant-garde club exclusively for journalists. The idea was that the gold rush had spawned a society moving away from art and culture, and they wanted a club where they could get together and have a community based around these ideas. It had nothing to do with going against the grain of Judeo-Christian America. I couldn't find any evidence of members obsessing over "druid rituals".
Amongst the great redwood trees they revived ancient ceremonies that, in truth, had their roots not in the druids, but in Babylon itself. As the railroads brought commerce and larger and larger populations, the prestige of the club grew. Until, in the year 2000, it is a gathering place for the world establishment, the elite.
We're about to show you some of the key evidence documenting this. It's absolutely central to understand that these bizarre activities being engaged in have been going back to 1873 and are not some new fanciful whim of the trendies on the West coast.
The ceremonies have little to do with druids or Babylon, but we'll talk about those a little later. It really is a club for rich males, most of them white, in big business and the establishment.
By the turn of the century, there was already a 10 to 15 year waiting list. Presidents from Howard Taft to Herbert Hoover were on the membership roster. Not to mention, later, famous general Dwight D. Eisenhower, later to become president. The roster of the Bohemian Cub reads like a who's who of the elite.
Look at this photo taken inside the Grove back in 1963. There you'll see Ronald Reagan and sitting two people over from him, later to become president, Richard Milhous Nixon. Frankly, we don't know if these men actively enjoyed the things that go on inside the Bohemian Club. But one thing is perfectly certain from the evidence: they are forced to go and attend and take part in these activities if they wish to be elevated to the highest powers of the geopolitical power structure.
Indeed, all of the listed individuals were members of the Bohemian Club. Richard Nixon referred to the Bohemian Club as the "faggiest goddamn thing that you could ever imagine". I'm not certain what Ronald Reagan or the others thought of it, however. The idea that they're forced to attend is asinine, considering Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter, Harry S. Truman, Lyndon B. Johnson, John F. Kennedy, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Calvin Coolidge, Warren G. Harding, Woodrow Wilson (demon in the flesh to most conspiracy theorists), William McKinley - were not members of the Bohemian Club, even though presidents before and after them sometimes were. I'm not sure how Alex Jones could explain that, but it is certainly not "perfectly certain."
Take George Bush Senior, documented member, and then of course there's his son. Now, the last four generations of Bushes have also attended the Skull and Bones society at Yale, well known to be steeped in the occult.
Then there's Bill Clinton, a frequent attendee. Upon closer inspection, the entire federal government at the highest levels is infested with Bohemian Club members.
Bill Clinton is not a member of the Bohemian Club, and as of writing this he's never been known to have attended, but he has been invited. The fact that members can invite others isn't proof of anything if one attends, considering the majority of members are rich, white businessmen it's no surprise their friends would also be rich, white businessmen. In all, the majority of individuals in the federal government are not members of the Bohemian Club.
And it doesn't stop there; America's private run for profit Federal Reserve Bank, from its very inception in 1913, has been run by prominent members of the Bohemian Club.
The Federal Reserve is not for-profit and does not turn a profit - it's a government entity which has private assets. You can read more about the Federal Reserve in my NWO section. I could find absolutely no record of any of the 14 directors of the Federal Reserve ever being Bohemian Club members. Furthermore, Alan Greenspan and Ben Bernanke are not known to be members or have ever attended meetings as far as I could find. After a lot of searching, I couldn't find record of a single member of the Board of Governors since 1914 that has ever been a member of the Bohemian Club. I also searched the conspiracy theorists' "lists" of members and I didn't find any on those (as of typing this). Alex Jones claims that the Federal Reserve has been run by Bohemian Club members since its creation, but not a single employee is listed as a member or attendee, except Alan Greenspan, and only by conspiracy theorists.
Central bank chairman Alan Greenspan was seen leaving the Bohemian Grove only one month before he was appointed chairman of the Federal Reserve. He had to be a made man to be a member of the most powerful group all on the planet.
I'm not sure why it matters he attended a meeting, though I cannot find any evidence of this, but it's definitely possible. It's not like he was unqualified for the job and only got it because he had friends at the Grove, considering he had run his own economic consulting firm for 33 years. He was also an economic analyst for The Conference Board, a business and industry think-tank. From 1974 to 1977 he was on the Council of Economic Advisers under President Ford. He was also the corporate director for about eight companies, including J.P. Morgan, Morgan Guaranty Trust Company of New York and the Mobil Corporation. And perhaps what really gets the conspiracy theorists angry, he was the director of the Council on Foreign Relations between 1982 and 1988.
So who would be better to be nominated than him? It couldn't possibly have anything to do with all of the Federal Reserve conspiracy theories out there.
Historical records are clear from major universities. The Manhattan Project was planned and instituted and run from the Bohemian Club.
The records are not actually that clear at all. The meeting which contained the initial planning of what was to become the Manhattan Project did indeed take place at the Bohemian Grove, but that's it. This is likely due to the academics' knowledge of the Bohemian Grove as a private, secluded place in order to relax, discuss, and plan in confidence. After all, they wouldn't discuss it in some pub some place, it was one of the biggest secrets of the war.
All of this going on in an atmosphere of bizarre revelry. You're looking at an illustration from a November 1989 issue of Spy Magazine, Spy goes undercover with Henry Kissinger, Merv Griffin, William F. Buckley Jr. The story was clearly a shill, meant to misdirect the intensifying media coverage that the Grove was getting in the late 1980s. The writer's spin is obvious; they're just masters of the universe, big frat boys blowing off steam. We'll get back to this article later. Because you can clearly see that the mantra in the spin story clearly has been picked up as a front by all the local media. "Sure, they're elitist, sure they have some bizarre rituals, but what's the big deal? They're just having fun."
So far, as I've shown, there's really no evidence policy or anything else of major consequence has been made here. Consider that Alex Jones was completely wrong when he stated that Federal Reserve members were prominent Bohemian Club members. Not even Alan Greenspan is a member, even if he did attend a meeting (which I can find no evidence for).
If that was the case, why would David Gergen, presidential advisor to President Clinton, resign from the Bohemian Club and 17 other organizations when it was revealed in 1993? Organizations like the Trilateral Commission, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderberg Group.
He resigned because he was becoming the Presidential Advisor, not because he was "outed". It was very public knowledge that he was a member of the club already and there was likely a conflict with his membership because he was making fun of the Grove some time earlier. He also resigned from other organizations, likely so he could spend most of his time consulting with the president. Even if he was embarrassed and that's why he resigned, why did he also resign from the other organizations, and why did he become an active member in the Bohemian Club later? This is even in The Order of Death where Alex Jones confronts David Gergen about his membership.
But it's not just the Washington Times or the Sacramento Bee, you're looking at an illustration from the pages of Parade Magazine, February 22nd, 1981. This story was the most accurate and revealing, detailing the so-called mock human sacrifice.
Since when is an effigy a "mock human sacrifice"? Do you mean to tell me all of those people burning effigies of various world leaders during protests are actually committing mock "Canaanite, Luciferian, Babylon mystery" human sacrifice? Regardless, it isn't meant to be a "mock human sacrifice" at all, but I'll explain that later on in the section where the ritual is analyzed by Alex Jones.
Former German Chancellor Helmut Schmidt wrote extensively in his memoirs. Men and Powers: A Political Retrospective goes into great detail about the secret establishment running the world. The Trilateral Commission, the CFR, the Bilderberg Group, and of course, ladies and gentlemen, the Bohemian Grove.
In the book Men and Powers: A Political Retrospective, Helmut Schmidt discusses his diplomatic experiences as the West German Chancellor and dealing with the United States, Russia, and China. When speaking about the United States, he discusses how there's essentially two political camps. There are the people currently in power, and then there are the people who once were in power, the "old rulers" so to speak, that try to push around their agendas. Further, each were involved in the Council on Foreign Relations, and he goes on to talk about how we have a lot of lobbyists here in America. It's a very dry, critical commentary of American politics. It is not something like Alex Jones claims, it's not a conspiracy blown wide open by a German politician in the early 1980s.
A place that he often talked about being, well, "a wonderful hideaway, a place to spend time Nelson and David Rockefeller and to talk about world government and steering societies."
He mentions discussions with Nelson Rockefeller, primarily about domestic issues, foreign policy, and so forth. The primary issue was how slowly America changed and that, unlike in Europe, each administration was similar to the previous one, but that's often the case here in America, since the very beginning. This is chiefly due to our "winner take all" electoral system, which basically forces out dissimilar organizations (third parties). They did not discuss "world government" and "steering societies" .
On page 225 of Men and Powers, he talks about it being one of the "most astounding placed he had ever visited in the United States", and how, "that feeling intensified over the years with subsequent visits." The book goes on for page after page discussing the corporate private government infrastructure of world government.
As a guest of George Shultz, he did attend a retreat to the Bohemian Grove, and then he attended a second time a few years later. His astonishment was not of the theatrics of fat, rich, old men, but rather the natural beauty of the redwood trees and the environment. As for the corporate and political "infrastructure of world government", I already discussed that above. Alex Jones is greatly misrepresenting him here.
His description of Bohemian Grove is nothing like Alex Jones presents. Essentially, Schmidt was more interested in the fact that men wore plaid pants instead of suits than any kind of rituals that may have happened - which he never mentioned. He goes on to mention being "dazzled" by westerns on television. He also mentions the large amount of advisers present in American politics.
