Inside Bohemian Grove:
The Story People Magazine
Won't Let You Read


When Dirk Mathison, San Francisco bureau chief for People magazine, infiltrated the exclusive Bohemian Grove retreat this summer, he got a view into the U.S. elite that very few reporters have glimpsed. Unfortunately, that elite includes the management of Time Warner, the owner of People, which prevented Mathison from telling his story.

Bohemian Grove, a secluded campground in California's Sonoma County, is the site of an annual two-week gathering of a highly select, all-male club, whose members have included every Republican president since Calvin Coolidge. Current participants include George Bush, Henry Kissinger, James Baker and David Rockefeller -- a virtual who's who of the most powerful men in business and government.

Few journalists have gotten into the Grove and been allowed to tell the tale (one exception is Philip Weiss, whose November 1989 Spy piece provides the most detailed inside account), and members maintain that the goings-on there are not newsworthy events, merely private fun. In fact, official business is conducted there: Policy speeches are regularly made by members and guests, and the club privately boasts that the Manhattan Project was conceived on its grounds.

Given the veil of secrecy that surrounds the Bohemian "encampment," a reporter needs to enter the grounds covertly in order to get a full portrait. Mathison entered the grounds three times July 1991, aided by activists from the Bohemian Grove Action Network.

He witnessed a speech -- "Smart Weapons" -- by former Navy Secretary John Lehman, who stated that the Pentagon estimates that 200,000 Iraqis were killed by the U.S. and its allies during the Gulf War. Other featured speakers included Defense Secretary Richard Cheney on "Major Defense Problems of the 21st Century", former Health, Education and Welfare Secretary Joseph Califano on "America's Health Revolution -- Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Pays", and former Attorney General Elliott Richardson on "Defining the New World Order".

Mathison's entree into the secret world of the Grove was cut short on July 20, however, when he was recognized by two of the participants in the festivities -- executives from Time Warner, People's publisher. More loyal to the Grove than to journalistic endeavor, they had the reporter removed from the premises (San Francisco Weekly, 8/7/91).

Mathison already had plenty of material, however, and turned in an article to his editors, which was scheduled to appear in the Aug. 5, 1991 issue. They were pleased with the piece, according to Mathison: "They liked it enough to expand it a bit," he told Extra!.

But then the story was suddenly killed. Landon Jones, managing editor of People, told Extra! that the decision had nothing to do with the Time Warner executives. "It was cut partially because he hadn't been there long enough to get a complete story. Secondly, we felt very uncertain about reporting what we did have, because, and this is my fault and I take responsibility for this, I simply didn't realize it was technically trespassing."

For his part, Mathison said he did not know why the story was killed, and implied it would be nearly impossible to find the real reason. "It's easier to penetrate the Bohemian Grove than the Time-Life Building," he told Extra!.

But the story raises questions about the ability of a media entity to report critically on an elite when its executives are enthusiastic members of that elite. Indeed, the Time organization was noted for sending a corporate plane to the Bohemian gathering every year, according to long-time Grove-watcher Kerry Richardson.

Time Warner is not the only media corporation with Bohemian connections. The list of Fourth Estate bigwigs who have been members or guests is extensive: Franklin Murphy, the former CEO of the Times Mirror corporation; William Randolph Hearst, Jr.; Jack Howard and Charles Scripps of the Scripps-Howard newspaper chain; Tom Johnson, president of CNN and former publisher of the Los Angeles Times.

When Associated Press president Louis Boccardi spoke at one of the Grove's "Lakeside Talks" about kidnapped reporter Terry Anderson (Spy, 11/89), he referred to his audience as men of "power and rank" and "gave them more details than he said he was willing to give his readers."

Walter Cronkite, now on the CBS board, hangs out at the same lodge at Bohemian Grove as George Bush and the former chairs of Procter & Gamble and Bank of America; Cronkite's voice has served as the voice of the Owl of Bohemia, a fixture in the club's mock-druidic rituals.

The media figures attending the retreat all agree not to report on what goes on inside. The prohibition seems to apply to reporters who are not guests or members as well: In 1982, NPR got a recording of Henry Kissinger's speech at the Grove -- but declined to air it (Spy, 11/89). Also in 1982, a Time reporter went undercover as a waiter in Bohemian Grove; like Mathison's People article, his story was killed.

The Great Big Bogus Debate: Breaking Law, Killing Soveriegnty

Al Cronkrite | May 19 2006

The process of producing agreement using the Hegelian Dialectic involves the Thesis the Anti-thesis and a Facilitator who will help to develop a Synthesis. When social issues arise protagonists from both sides are questioned and moderated with the intent of reaching accord.

Agreement is a necessary prelude to peace and since peace is widely considered a Holy objective, the Dialectic is being used as a ruse to bring about a phony secular peace.

United States has long since forsaken righteous legal standards and has fallen into the pit of human legal opinion where justice is hard to find. Nevertheless, some deference is still shown to our Constitution and what little is left is being challenged by the use of the Dialectic.

A debate has been contrived over illegal immigration and the millions of illegal aliens already in our country. On one side are the 12 to 30 or 40 (depending on whose figures you believe) million illegal aliens already living in United States whose participation in the debate over how they should be treated and what should be done about their relatives and non-relatives who continue in a daily deluge over our borders allows them an illegal legitimacy. On the other side is a diminutive but growing group of America-first patriots who wish to see the rule of law upheld and our Constitution preserved.

Larry King’s Show on CNN was a classic example of an attempt to put the Dialectic into action. Larry King is Jewish and the elite Jewish agenda has and continues to be in favor of unlimited immigration which is deemed favorable to their race. (For additional information on the immigration invasion click here. ) Larry was the Facilitator but unfortunately the Thesis and anti-Thesis were weak and though Larry made a valiant effort the Synthesis was shakey. Included in the panel were New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson; CNN Commentator Lou Dobbs; California Congressman, Dana Rohrabacker; Minuteman founder, Jim Gilchrist; anchor and author, Maria Elena Salinas; CNN's Senior National Correspondent, John Roberts; and Pulitzer Prize winning journalist of The Los Angeles Times, Sonia Nazario.

Lou Dobbs outlined the extent of the problem, “And, as I have said throughout, you cannot reform immigration unless you control immigration. You can't control immigration unless you secure that border and it is an absolute, to me, disgrace that this Congress, this president, both political parties have refused to take the necessary steps to secure those borders and ports.

The American people are being disappointed on so many levels by this government, this administration and in fairness the previous administrations, the previous three administrations in terms of border security, in terms of illegal immigration. But this society of ours right now is demanding results and this government is dysfunctional at best.”

And Rohrebacher offered a solution, “But once these people are here, these 15-to-20 million people, they should not be taking the jobs of Americans and they should not be getting the education money, the health care money, the housing subsidies, and all the other things that we provide American citizens. If we cut them off from that, from the benefits and the jobs, there will be a trend going in the right direction. They will start leaving.”

Journalist and author Sonia Nazario spoke from personal experience. After traveling from Honduras and riding on seven trains the length of Mexico along with hundreds of central American’s intending to cross illegally into the United States she wrote a book entitled “Enrique’s Journey” . The book is about a boy seeking to be re-united with his mother.

Sonia spoke of the lack of will being exhibited by the United States Government saying, “What people along those migrants routes really talk about what would work is employer sanctions and that means not only having sanctions for people who hire immigrants who are here illegally but enforcement of those. That means that people will be actually fined, and that has not occurred in the United States.”

She went on to recommend that the United States devise a foreign policy that would help create jobs in the poorer nations in our hemisphere.

First, every person, man, woman, and child, who crosses the United States borders illegally breaks the laws of our nation and immediately becomes a criminal. When our government fails to enforce our laws it becomes a rogue regime that should be impeached and replaced with one that will uphold our legal system.




Second, not mentioned in the Larry King dialectic was the inexorable progress of globalization and its intention to erase borders and meld all nations into a new world government. Since this is the core issue, debate without its being mentioned is a debate about symptoms rather than causes.

Third, Americans need to understand that legal standards cannot be upheld when emotionalism interferes with a clear understanding of the law. When victims are brought into our courts and allowed to sully justice with emotion, justice suffers.

When Sonia Nazario suggests that America’s citizens should shoulder responsibility for the living standards of other nations in our hemisphere she misplaces responsibility. Each nation and each individual is responsible for its own standard of living and attempts to piggy back on the affluence of other nations is an illegal procedure.

Toward the end of the program Sonia Nazario stated a startling truth. She said, “And the real question is if there is tamper proof identification, will the federal government actually enforce the laws? So far, they have proven unwilling to do that. There is virtually no enforcement of the laws that are currently on the books. So you can't blame Americans for questioning will this administration or any administration enforce any kind of employer sanctions in the future.”

Why the big debate about illegal immigration when it should be obvious to everyone that the Bush II Administration doesn’t really want to stop it? If this government can mobilize 40 thousand employees to harass citizens at our airports they could surely mobilize a successful effort to enforce our existing laws; they just don‘t want to.

Democratic Governor Bill Richardson of New Mexico is a media darling and a supporter of illegal immigrants. He postures himself as a seeker of a just solution while failing to brand illegal immigrants as criminals and even bestowing them with benefits. A detailed description of his action is here. Unfortunately he is not the only biased legislator. The Webpage at one point provided a list of American legislators who support illegal aliens. It may not still exist but following is a copy of the list that was posted.

The U.S. House :

Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), Bob Menendez (D-NJ), Chris Cannon (R-UT), Raul Grijalva (D-AZ), Jim Kolbe (R-AZ)Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Joe Baca (D-CA), Jeff Flake (R-AZ), Linda Sanchez (D-CA), Jane Harman (D-CA), Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), David Price (D-NC), Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), Mark Udall (D-CO)

The U.S. Senate :

Richard Durbin (D-IL) Larry Craig (R-ID), Mel Martinez (R-FL), Ken Salazar (D-CO), Chuck Hagel (R-NE), Christpher Dodd (D-CT), John McCain (R-AZ), Edward Kennedy (D-MA), John Kerry (D-MA), Evan Bayh (D-IN)

Governors:

Bill Richardson (D-NM), Rod Blagojevich (R-IL), Bill Huckabee (R-AR), Janet Napolitano (D-AZ),Jim Huntsman (R-UT), John Baldacci (D-ME)

The real question has nothing to do with the illegal immigrants but with whether or not United States will continue to exist as a sovereign, law abiding nation. The debate allows illegal aliens a legitimacy that nullifies our laws. That it is being carried out in the public square is tragic part of a conspiracy to bring down our nation.

In 1974, in an article entitled “The Hard Road to World Order” published in “Foreign Affairs”, the Council of Foreign Relations (CFR) magazine, elitist member Richard Gardner wrote "the 'house of world order' will have to be built from the bottom up rather than from the top down... but an end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece, will accomplish much more than the old-fashioned frontal assault."

A nation that cannot control its borders is no longer a sovereign nation! Wake up America!

Bohemian Grove Employee Blows the Whistle on Inside Events

Steve Watson & Alex Jones | September 29 2005

Prisonplanet.tv members click here for the full interview

Yesterday Alex Jones was joined on air by a guest who worked inside Bohemian Grove and got up close and personal with the macabre rituals of the elite and their homosexual tendencies. These new revelations have been heard nowhere else.

"Kyle" has worked at the Grove for their Spring Jinx for the "neophytes", the newcomers or outsiders, and for the official fifteen day Summer encampment festival.

The Grove is a private 2,700 acre redwood retreat on the Russian River in Sonoma County, California. Described as the "Greatest Men's Party on Earth," the members of the Bohemian Club and international elites have been gathering in their redwoods for over 100 years. Regular visitors include the Bushes, Henry Kissinger, Colin Powell, Newt Gingrich, whilst past luminaries have included Former Presidents Regan and Nixon, together BEFORE they had even taken office.


The most famous ritual that occurs at the Grove every year is the Symbolic Pagan Worship of Molech–the ‘god’ of Child Sacrifice. A bound effigy is burned in a "Cremation of Care" ceremony under a 40ft Stone Owl. Remember that political figureheads from around the world attend this sacrifice ceremony. German Chancellor Helmut Schmidt wrote of his fondness for the Grove ceremonies in his Biography "Men and Power". If your neighbours were doing this in their back yard wouldn't you be slightly concerned? These people are making decisions that have global repercussions.

The Camp at the Grove is riddled with imagery of death, sacrifice, skulls and Owls, as is the Club's Headquarters in San Francisco.


This all sounds bizarre and incredible, you couldn't make it up. Yet we have seen again and again how elite figures are obsessed with these kinds of activities. We have a full archive and Alex has infiltrated and made a full length feature film on the occult rituals that take place on an annual basis at the elite hideaway at the Bohemian Grove.

There are many offshoots of the Bohemian Club, The most famous US branch is the "Brotherhood of Death" known as Skull and Bones, members of which include Both Bushes and recent Democratic nominee John kerry.

In the past members have bragged about how far reaching plans are hatched and policies set within the grove, such as the Star Wars defense initiative and the Manhattan Project.

"Kyle" went on record as saying he witnessed Colin Powell, Justice Clarance Thomas, Governor of New Mexico Bill Richardson all in attendance at this year's encampment.


The most honored guests reside in one of 119 camps known as Mandalay and rarely venture down to the dining circle of the Grove. Even other Grove members are not allowed to go near this camp without an invitation.

"Kyle" entered the Grove, without knowing anyone else in there, after an interview at the Grove in April. Immediately he took the chance to sneak around by driving in beyond the security gate which was at the time unattended. At this point the security was not overwhelming as there were no luminaries inside.

"Kyle" then described driving up to the lake area and getting a close up view of the 40ft Stone Owl.





Upon returning to begin work at the annual "Spring Jinx" "Kyle" witnessed the extensive use of biometric scanning equipment. Employees now have to hand scan to gain entry and to leave the Grove. It seems that security has been stepped up since Alex Jones infiltrated over five years ago. The members are able to forego this scanning and simply have ID cards.

Alex snook in through the undergrowth before the main entrance to the grove. "Kyle" stated that there are now motion sensors all over that area to prevent any new would-be intruders.

"Kyle" described how the employees at the Grove are segregated in separate areas and have to wear different color coded badges.

He then went on to describe how as one of the younger men in there, he was approached numerous times by men in their 50s, 60s and 70s and asked if he "slept around".


We have previously exposed how members of the grove have both male and female prostitutes and even gay porn stars flown in for the Summer camp. Former President Richard Nixon is on record questioning the activities at the Grove, making reference to the debase, decadent attitude as well as the homosexual activity there.


"Kyle" went on to reveal how as well as containing lots of Satanic themed imagery, the Grove is also very Pagan in nature. There is a large statue of the Godess Diana, the main Circle is named Diana, there are buses named Diana, Old Druid and hamadryad (From Greek/Roman mythology - A wood nymph who lives only as long as the tree of which she is the spirit lives or a King Cobra) which is one of the high priests in the Cremation of Care ceremony.



Cremation Of Care Ceremony

"Kyle" described how he managed to find the building in which garb for the main Cremation of Care ceremony was housed. He filmed inside with his small camera with two hands but was so on edge that you can see he is physically shaking.






"Kyle" described how he saw multiple "effigies" for use in the Cremation of Care Ceremony in addition to the one inside the Hollow Stone Owl. There is a body that they drive in on a hearse, one that is rowed across the lake by the grim reaper and a third that is burned in the Molech Owl.

He also described how prior to the ceremony he managed to get inside the Owl and witnessed electrical equipment presumably for use during the ceremony for fireworks or to light the fire and burn the effigy.

According to "Kyle" the Cremation of Care ceremony has altered only slightly since Alex caught it on video. There were some new effects and a different voice over for "care". Previously the voice had been reported as Walter Kronkite, yet "Kyle" reported that Kronkite, one of the "Hillbillies" along with the Bushes was there but was not in good health.





"Kyle" has managed to get around five hours of video and 50 photos in the Grove with the use of a pen camera. This footage will be included in a re-release of Alex's Dark Secrets Inside Bohemian Grove. The first showing of this will be at the Downtown Alamo Drafthouse in Austin on the 9th of October, with a follow up the day after.

Included is Two videoes and pictures

This is a dumb comment, but I will do it anyway.
Shirley McClain was on coast to coast am(radio) a few days ago. She said Kucinich said he saw a UFO during the debates, and he did. She then said she wished that they had asked Richardson if he had seen one, too, because she had had many conversations with him and he is a 'real believer'.
Poor Shirley. Richardsan had been asked that by Chris Matthews just a few minutes later. He said no, he doesn't believe in UFO's. He's the governor of New Mexico and UFOs are a big tourist attraction, bringing in a lot of money, so he pretends to believe.
What a two-faced, self-serving, rotten slob!

I love Bill. He is a good friend of my father and luckily I got to meet him, he is so kind and has a really good sense of humor. I wish he is our next President. He is a diplomat, and he cares about the enviroment..I think he would do a good job.

Richardson would certianly do a better job than Clinton, Obama, Edwards, Biden, Dodd, or any of the republican candidates, barring Ron Paul perhaps. But, Kucinich and Gravel both trump Richardson. Both have better records and make more sense on almost every issue than Richardson. It's too bad none of them will every attain the golden "electibility" status that you must attain to achieve the attention of the ignorant American masses...

So Bill's a part of the power grid - that's why on left right and center today on NPR they were trashing him for saying Human Rights are more important than national security. The war hawks do not grasp that it is a world of haves and have nots and that the disenfranchised are prone to striking out violently against oppression and injustice and that a nice real dose of human rights would give them an alternative to violence. It's inconceivable to me that enlightenment is in such short supply. In regard to Bill Richardson wanting to promote the tourist trade in his state - I guess that's where area 51 is - how is that wrong - his personal beliefs are just that - personal. I wouldn't mind a right to lifer in the White House or a pro choicer if he/she tabled his/her personal beliefs and didn't try to undermine Freedom of Choice, the Constitution or the Bill of Rights. In other words Bill Richardson doesn't have to personally believe in little green men to believe in supporting the economy of his state and the people who make a living off of UFO's, investigating them, or even those selling cheap roadside trinkets. It's in the best interest of the citizens of his State that he is managing, and in the best interest of the economy and livelihoods of those making a living in the UFO field. That makes him smart and not an ideologue. This is about putting bread on the table people. The only litmus test is can he manage a Country, balance the books and have the ability to build consensus and cooperation with our global neighbors. Ask yourself why are people slandering him on NPR for putting Human Rights first. Is it because he is electable? He may be the best consensus builder out there. Whether he believes in UFO's is completely irrelevant to protecting the economy, protecting the environment, ensuring veteran rights, improving education, balancing the budget, trimming the pentagon's budget and getting our tax dollars distributed the most efficiently for the most effect for the betterment of us all - not to mention will he uphold the separation of church and state and the constitution.

Again I say to the Bohemian watchya call it's - if Richardson was part of the "insider group" dancing naked in the woods plotting global domination - don't you think he would at least be on the ballot in Virginia, (he needs 5,000 more signatures) raising oodles of money and having corporate sponsorship and jets at his disposal like Rudy. The answer is he doesn't but that is changing as people are looking at his legislative track record and I hope my god, I pray thinking for themselves. Why isn't he being championed by FOX news - as a bohemian insider they would be pushing him hard.

So don't believe everything you read and step back and follow the line of your accusations out logically. He would already be appointed as heir apparent just like George W. was, he would be the front runner, have the most media coverage, and be more than well financed if he was in this all powerful bohemian cult that runs the world.

As it stands he barely gets a mention in the press until you hit the last paragraph of the articles or unless he stands up for Human Rights. Think about it - a real threat to the Status Quo is going to get slandered very, very hard by the powers that be - perhaps the "bohemian cult" warning about Richardson are prefabricated by the Status Quo - in the world of conspiracy theories you never know. So I suggest looking at Bill Richardson's actions and accomplishments as a Governor and deciding for yourself on those merits if you think he would make a good "Executive". As long as he balances the budget, protects the environment, and ends the war I don't care what he does on his own time! That's how you run a country and that's what picking a representative is all about. This isn't a beauty contest people.
