MONTE RIO -- The Bohemian Club's
Annual Summer Encampment came to a close here Sunday, ending a
two-week retreat for the rich and powerful that President Herbert
Hoover once called "the greatest men's party on Earth." The
club's famed annual gathering has been held for more than 100 years at
the 2,700-acre Bohemian Grove in Monte Rio, about 70 miles north of
San Francisco in Sonoma County. This year's event drew in notables
such as former President George Bush, Texas Gov. George W.
Bush, Henry Kissinger, retired Gen. Colin Powell, former House Speaker
Gingrich and Dow Chemical Chairman Frank Popoff, as well as actor
The men gather to celebrate what they
call "the spirit of Bohemia," said Peter Phillips, a Sonoma
State University sociology professor who wrote his doctoral
dissertation on the Bohemian Club.
"This is a place men can go and
hang out with people who are similar to them," he said.
The annual gathering near the Russian
River, which was first held in 1879, starts with the "Cremation
of Care" ritual, in which the club's mascot is burned in effigy,
symbolizing a freedom from care. Members also perform several plays,
and gourmet food and expensive wine are plentiful.
While the club was formed in 1872 by
a group of San Francisco journalists, the male-only club now bars
journalists from membership to protect the group's privacy. Membership
is coveted, and people routinely wait 10 or 15 years before gaining
admittance. There are currently about 2,700 members.
The club has drawn criticism for
years because of its emphasis on privacy. What particularly concerns
Phillips and others are the "Lakeside Talks" held during the
summer retreat. This year, Powell was expected to deliver a talk
titled "America's Promise Leading Armies and Leading Kids,"
and Popoff, of Dow Chemical, was to give a speech called
"These are often public policy
speeches," said Mary Moore, with Bohemian Grove Action Network, a
protest group. "And the American public is not privy to it."
No one from the club returned several
calls from The Bee.
Bohemian Grove Action Network has
periodically held demonstrations at the grove, although none were held
The point of the protests, Moore
said, has been "to let the American public know that what they've
learned in civics isn't the full story on how decision-making . . . is
made in this country." The Bohemian Club, she said, "is one
of the most elite organizations on the planet."
When the group sponsors public policy
talks that are held without public scrutiny, "the average
American feels left out of the process," she said.
Phillips echoes Moore's objections to
the off-the-record nature of the Lakeside Talks.
"These are extremely powerful
people and private discussions on policy issues that affect us
certainly go against democratic principles," he said.
"There's no reason that those speeches they're giving couldn't be
transcribed and made public. They have a responsibility to be open

The August 2, 1982 edition of Newsweek
magazine reported: "... the world's most prestigious summer camp -
the Bohemian Grove - is now in session 75 miles north of San Francisco.
The fiercely guarded, 2,700-acre retreat is the country extension of San
Francisco's all-male ultra-exclusive Bohemian Club to which every
Republican President since Herbert Hoover has belonged.
With its high-powered clientele,
coveted privacy and cabalistic rituals, the Bohemian Grove has prompted
considerable suspicion. ... The most important events, however are the
"lakeside talks" (past orators: Alexander Hague and Casper
Weinberger). This year's speaker was Henry Kissinger on The Challenge of
Maclean's magazine, March 23, 1981
reported: "Each summer, for three weekends - this year's will be
the 103rd - nearly 2,000 Bohemians, with guests in tow, speed in by car
and corporate jet to their guarded Grove, close by the hamlet of Monte
Rio (population 1,200) on the Russian River. The Grove's Shakespearean
motto, "Weaving spiders come not here," is an injunction to
forget wheeling and dealing which is widely ignored. While 'ruling-class
cohesiveness' rarely lets slip details of accommodations arrived at
there, some - such as the 1967 agreement by Ronald Reagan, over a drink
with Richard Nixon, to stay out of the coming presidential race -
have helped mold America's destiny.
Oddly enough, reporters are barred from
this club, formed one night in 1872 by five bored news hawks on the old
San Francisco Examiner to promote good fellowship (i.e., booze-ups) and
'to help elevate journalism to that place in the popular estimation to
which it is entitled.' That aspiration went down the drain when
membership was extended to show people, and by 1878, the year of the
first Grove - fest, the journalist were already on their way out.
Today, a prospective member faces an
interrogation that, according to one club man, 'would satisfy the KGB.'
There is a waiting list of 1,500 notables, all eager to pay the $2,500
initiation fee and $600-a-year dues.
Mother Jones, August 1981 volume 6 page
28, reported a partial list of some of the prominent members:
"George P. Shultz, Stephen Bechtel, Jr., Gerald R. Ford, Henry
Kissinger, William F. Buckley, Jr., Fred L. Hartley, Merv Griffin,
Thomas Haywood, Joseph Coors, Edward Teller, Ronald Reagan, A. W.
Clausen, George Bush, William French Smith, John E. Swearingten, Casper
W. Weinberger, Justin Dart, William E. Simon, and hundreds of other
prominent politicos and businessmen."
Antony C. Sutton, Editor of an
excellent monthly newsletter, Phoenix Letter,
stated in the October, 1996 edition:
"Up to a few months ago, our
knowledge of Bohemian Grove, the exclusive elitist hideaway by
supposedly adult wheeler dealers, a.k.a. Washington statesman
and prominent people (all male.)

We dismissed the behavior as
immature, even pitiful by emotionally disturbed juveniles and not
worth attention. This is where Kissinger, Ford, Nixon, Bechtel, Bush,
Cheney, Hoover and their friends (2600 members) hang out and
"relax." And if they want to behave as little boys that is
their privilege, it is private property.

may radically change this perception of Bohemian Grove. Not merely
drunkenness, unbounded use of alcohol and drugs with vague homosexual
tones (confirmed by our sources) but reported activities much more
serious - kidnapping, rape, pedophilia, sodomy, ritual murder.
Investigation is blocked under the 1947 National Security Act. (!) And
like the Omaha child abuse case, includes illegal detention of
For decades, there have been vague
rumors of weird goings on in Bohemian Grove in more remote parts of
its 2200 acres. Reliable reports claim Druidic like rituals, druids in
red hooded robes marching in procession and chanting to the Great Owl
(Moloch.) A funeral pyre with "corpses." (Scores of men work
in the Bohemian Grove as servants so this party is fairly well
An article in a local community
newspaper, Santa Rosa Sun (1993, July) reported on the Cult of Canaan
and the legend of Moloch in place at Bohemian Grove. The Moloch Pagan
Cult of Sacrifice is human sacrifice. About the mid 1980s there were
rumors of murders in remote parts of the property. A local police
investigation went nowhere. State investigators on related criminal
acts went nowhere.
According to an observer and near
victim, who can describe the Bohemian Grove inner hideaways, the
closed sanctum, even the decor at secret locations, places where no
outsider goes (or servants according to our sources) there is an
UNDERGROUND lounge (sign spelled U.N.derground) a Dark Room, a Leather
Room and a Necrophilia Room.
Here is one of O'Brien's quote
"Slaves of advancing age or with failed programming were
sacrificially murdered at random in the wooded grounds of Bohemian
Grove and I felt it was only a matter of time until it would be
me." This potential victim survived. Others reportedly did
The Origin of Moloch, Druid and
These cults were based on human
sacrifice. Why would a 20th century resort reproduce the cult
ceremonies? At the minimum, it demonstrates an attraction to the
ceremonial practices of the cult, i.e. adoration of destruction,
blood, barbarity and sacrifice of children.
In brief, the O'Brien charges are
consistent with the tenants of Bohemian Grove as played out in
ceremony. This is not a resort devoted to, for example, tennis or
swimming. It is apparently devoted to blood sacrifices.
"Many political reputations and
world governments secrets were staked on
the belief that I could not be
deprogrammed and rehabilitated to recall that
which I was supposed to forget."
So much for the programming experts.
Colonel Aquino is (was?) a psychology "expert" linked to
mind control with Defense Intelligence Agency and presumably
first class talent, yet (Cathy) O'Brien was apparently deprogrammed
and secrets spilled all over." (end quoting)

The book "TRANCE
Formation of America" is an autobiography by Cathy O'Brien
with Mark Phillips. Cathy and her 8 year
old daughter were rescued from their mind
- controlled existence in 1988 and taken to Alaska by Mark Phillips
for safety and rehabilitation. She and her daughter were victims of the U.S.
Government Defense Intelligence Agency TOP SECRET MK - Ultra Project
Monarch (MIND CONTROL). Cathy became a White House
"Presidential Model" Mind-control slave. Later on, her very
young daughter was included in this evil MIND
CONTROL project, and was physically, sexually and mentally tortured
by the pen-stripe suited leaders of the most powerful organization in
the world, our U.S. Government. I will not take this space to tell you
the entire story, because it is much more alarming as it is related by
Cathy in this VERY DISTURBING book. My first reaction to reading these
facts was utter
sadness to learn about two innocent human
beings that were tortured and treated as simple tools for the pleasure
of our world leaders. This was followed by extreme anger, when I
realized that the persons committing these horrible crimes were not
repeat offenders who were just recently released from a maximum security
prison or mental hospital, but people who are our recent and current
elected and appointed state and federal leaders. If this book does not
deeply sadden you, and then make you very angry, you just don't
As these world leaders, who have all
the creature comforts that they could ever desire, look around for
something new and interesting to do to amuse themselves, is it not
reasonable to assume that they eventually will revert to pagan ritual
rites, mind control, pedophilia, necrophilia, homosexuality, bestiality,
prostitution and yes - human sacrifice? Apparently they already have!!
