This is the follow up to his first movie on the Bohemian Grove, Dark Secrets: Inside Bohemian Grove - if you haven't read that one, you should check that out first - as it goes into depth about the various claims made by Alex Jones about the Bohemian Grove. While I will touch on those same issues here, you will get a better sense of what's going on if you read Dark Secrets: Inside Bohemian Grove first.
The film starts out with showing pictures of Hitler and books like "Hitler and the Occult." In the previous film, Alex Jones went into his "investigation" with the predetermined conclusion that something very sinister and evil was going on at the Bohemian Grove, and naturally he saw this everywhere. I watched the same footage that Alex Jones was speaking about, and I came to the opposite conclusion as he did.
This is how George Bush dresses up, right here, we got him on tape!
This is from a scene in the previous film, where at the end of his "investigation", Alex Jones is so convinced that there's a massive, conspiracy going on at the Bohemian Grove where "Canaanite, Luciferian, Babylon mystery religion" practices happen and a human being is burned in effigy. Sometimes he omits the word "effigy" and he even points out the "screams coming from the sacrifice." By the end of the film, he was clearly convinced something was going on, but he didn't need to even go to be convinced because he already made up his mind.
Sir, everything you, you, I, I, I, don't owe you this comment.
I know, I appreciate it.
You, you have, this is what's called ambush journalism, and I disrespect you for that as well. So, thank you, and goodbye.
Are you in the ritual?
That's none of your damn business.
It really is ambush journalism, but what do you expect from Alex Jones? We'll talk about this scene later, as it comes up again.
Our story begins in northern California over a hundred years ago when locals began to spread rumors of bizarre occult rituals being conducted in the ancient redwood groves of Sonoma County. As the decades passed it became clear: these incredible stories had a basis in truth and their source was a 2,700 acre private club known as the Bohemian Grove.
The locals were spreading rumors that a bunch of weird stuff was going on in the woods, not really "occult" per say. As the decades passed, and finally Alex Jones came onto the scene, it became clear that there wasn't really anything evil going on. The conspiracy theorists want to see Satanism, so they see Satanism.
Then in a time period between the mid-1970s and the early 1990s, scores of reporters attempted to infiltrate the Grove. All attempts were unsuccessful. Grove security identified them, threw them out for trespassing, or in some cases, had the local police arrest them.
Really? Because even in the previous movie he mentions an article published by someone who actually did infiltrate the Grove, but of course Alex Jones just claims it's a spin piece, despite the fact he even quotes it as fact. How can it be both to him? In any case, the original article originates from a November 1989 issue of Spy Magazine, and goes in great detail about the reporter's infiltration. He also mentioned that, despite rumors, security was very relaxed and almost non-existent and he managed to sneak in and out for almost the entire duration of the event without being caught. Alex Jones was only there a few hours.
To many it seemed the Grove's secrets would never become public. All of that changed on July 15th, 2000, when we ripped aside the veil of secrecy and were successfully able to penetrate the Bohemian Grove on their high holy day and video tape the Cremation of Care ritual.
He managed to "infiltrate" on the first day of the camp by walking through the woods and taking one of the shuttle trucks into camp. He also managed to capture on video what's already been recorded in photographs, audio tape, transcription, etc since at least the early 1980s.
Their "high holiday" is the first day of the event, and there is a play called Midsummer High Jinks where the culmination is the "Cremation of Care". This "ritual" is symbolic of throwing one's cares away for the next two weeks and even detailed in the bad poetry of the event it's made clear what's going on. Of course, Alex Jones saw something completely different and created imagery occult practices to replace a fraternity ritual.
