Order of the Skull and Bones
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 dialectic.
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 turn us into cybernetic mystery zombies".
The assassination of JFK, this article contends, was the performance of a public occult ritual called The Killing of the King,
designed as a mass-trauma, mind-control assault against our U.S. national body-politic.
During Operation Sunrise, Operation Blowback, Operation Paperclip and others, thousands of Nazi scientists, researchers
and administrators were brought to the United States after World War II. Many were "smuggled" into the country against direct,
written, orders from President Harry S. Truman.
Project Monarch was the resumption of a mind-control project called Marionette Programming,
which started in Nazi Germany. The basic component of the Monarch Program is the sophisticated manipulation of the mind, using
extreme trauma to induce Multiple Personality Disorder.
Mr. Downward feels that the perpetrators purposefully murdered JFK in such a way as to affect our National identity and
cohesiveness -- to fracture America's soul. Even the blatancy of their conspiracy 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.
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 transactions."
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 Order of 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 skull homophone is scull, a quick, gliding boat and part of Skull & Bones first nomenclature.
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 George Washington. 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", Robison 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 "tomb":
"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."
Skull & Bones = Illuminati?
Is the Order of the Skull & Bones part of the Illuminati?
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 Berlin.
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
From "George 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 commander-in-chief.
"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
PSB [was] Gordon Gray.... Gordon's brother, R.J. Reynolds chairman Bowman 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 Richard A. Moore. Some time out for a Trilateralist-Democrat-patsy
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, Saddam Hussein.
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, Clinton was recruited as a CIA operative while a Rhodes
Scholar at Oxford. Could this be the "old Hegallian historical dialectic process"?
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 -- CIA 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 inquiry.'
"--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 controlled conflict?
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. Bill paid her back by appointing her as Ambassador
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,
the 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 eugenics and population control, suppressed history and technology,
yearly retreats, profitable partnerships with brutal dictators, deals with "terrorists", the involvement of the Knights of
Malta, war-mongering and profiteering, mind-control, secret societies for teens, ritual 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
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
Not wouldn't, but "couldn't".
In wake of Antony Sutton's first ground-breaking exposes of the 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
