America's Secret Establishment

Skulls and Bones

The all-male (has since voted to admit women) Skull & Bones Society of America is composed of alumni of Yale University and includes some of the most powerful men in America. It is the oldest and most prestigious of Yale's seven secret fraternities.

These secret fraternities serve as recruiting grounds for young people destined for careers in government, law, finance and other influential sectors of American life.

Skull & Bones is the elite of the elite among these societies. Members have served as senators, secretaries of state, national security advisors, attorneys general, CIA directors and Supreme Court justices. They have also become presidents of universities, CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, foundation presidents and founders of investment banks. Three Bonesmen, William Howard Taft, two George Bushes (the father and son) have elected president. Only Scroll & Key can claim a near equal status.

It was founded in 1832 as a second chapter of the Bavarian Illuminati by General William Huntington Russell and Alphonso Taft (the only man later served as both President and Chief Justice of the United States in 1909 and 1921, respectively) put together a super secret fraternity for the elite children of the Anglo-American corporate and political establishment.

General William Huntington Russell was a cousin of Samuel Russell who in 1823 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.

General Russell, its founder, was in Germany before his senior year and formed a warm friendship with a leading member of a German society. The meaning of the permanent number 322 in all Bones literature is that it was founded in '32 as the second chapter of the German Illuminati.

This secret fraternity has since become the breeding ground for the America’s Secret Establishment according to a book by Antony Sutton. According to Sutton, Bonesmen have to implement 12 areas of concern:

1) Education - dictating how the population of the future will behave through publishing
2) Money - controlling wealth and exchange of goods through banking
3) Law - enforcing the will of the state, a world law and a world court
4) Politics - directing each state
5) Economy - creating additional wealth
6) History - making the people believe what you want them to think
7) Psychology - controlling how people think
8) Philanthropy - so that people can think well of the controllers of wealth
9) Medicine - power over health, life and death
10) Religion – making Romanized or General Christianity the world religion
11) Media - power over what people know and learn of current events and
12) Continuity - appointing follower's to ensure the longevity over generations.

Judging by today's reality, we can see their plan has proven successful.

It is said that members are forbidden from revealing affiliation, although they are permitted to wear Skull and Bone pins in public. After graduation, Skull and Bones members then purportedly use connections to go on to highly successful careers.

Fifteen new members in their senior year at Yale are initiated annually into the secret fraternity. The initiation ceremony has bonded Yale graduates who went on to become politicians as Congressmen and presidents, diplomats, Wall Street tycoons, bankers, judges, lawyers, media executives, and university presidents. Members remain in the society for life. Alexandra Robbins, a Yale graduate and author of a book on the Skull and Bones, Secrets of the Tomb, describes a social club with arcane rules, a hoard of relics ranging from Hitler's silver collection to the skull of the Indian chief Geronimo - plus a resident prostitute.

She says initiation rites include a mud-wrestling bout, receiving a beating and the recitation by a new member of his sexual history - delivered while he lies naked in a coffin. Elevation of a Bonesman creates opportunities for his fellows, and Robbins says that President Bush has appointed 10 members to his administration, including the head of the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Each year, Skull and Bones members select ("tap") 15 third-year Yale students to replace them in the senior group the following year. Graduating members are given a sizeable cash bonus of at least US$15,000 (plus a grandfather wristwatch) to help them get started in life. Older graduate members, the so-called "Patriarchs", give special backing in business, politics and legal careers to graduate Bonesmen who exhibit talent or usefulness.

Each member is guaranteed financial security for life; in this way, Bones can ensure that no member will feel the need to sell the secrets of the society in order to make a living. And it has worked. Bonesmen are automatically offered jobs at the many investment banks and law firms dominated by their secret fraternity brothers. They are also given exclusive access to the Skull and Bones Island, a lush retreat built for millionaires, with a lavish mansion and a bevy of women at the members' disposal.

The knights (as the student members are called) learn quickly that their allegiance to the society must supercede all else - family, friendships, country, God. They are taught that once they get out into the world, they are expected to reach positions of prominence so that they can further elevate the society’s status and help promote the standing of their fellow Bonesmen.

The majority of Bonesmen are a core group of no more than 20 to 30 families who form the nucleus of the Order. The core group are from Anglo-Saxon families who came to North America in the very first wave of British settlers in the 17th century.

The president of the USA, George Bush (including his father, former American president George Bush Senior and grandfather too, Prescott Bush) and his 2004 presidential election rival, John Kerry are both Bonesmen. See an interview with George Bush in Time magazine, August 7th 2000 (Volume 156, No. 6).
