SKULL AND BONES, 1832-1985, the full list of 15, each year revealed, who has the rest?
Calling all disgrunted Bones. Help out the world: give us the rest.
I was reading this book. It has lots of articles you can either find on the web (which I have read before)--though it's quite a search to get them all, particluarly if you are unaware of what you are looking for and just starting to get worried or curious about Bones--or better yet, angry at their incessant snobby upper-class inbred involvement with destroying a government 'of the people, by the people, and for the people' in the United States. So, when I saw all these articles in one place in the book I was hardly disappointed, it was closer to a feeling of "yes! they included this one! and this one! and this one!"
This book is a great reference if you are unsure where to start. Pondering the idea of a 2004 presidential election being the first Bones vs. Bones election in the two (corporate) parties. Ponder on that as the book takes you back--to let you know how American elites and American democracy got so plutocratic and secretive. Skull and Bones, or The Order, as it is officially called, has been instrumentally involved in turning the United States into such a plutocratic aristocratic place. And they have been working on it for over 100 years.
Come 2004, how can 'Bones' lose? If you are unable to stand either Kerry or Bush and want to know more about networks they run in, this book is for you. It is important to know about Skull and Bones becaues it is both a major agenda setting political force and a general networking tool. What they have kept hidden pretty well for almost 200 years--about who runs America and how America is run--is finally being shoved in our faces.
There are basically sectors of power in Bones financial, political and educational/cultural power. These all touch and are funded by private drug trade, oil, and armaments profits. From the early 1800s, these sectors have funded ALL major family fortunes in the United States. The money is pumped into educational institutions to guide America on a path. Every important institutional effort whether military/imperial, financial, or educational--has been linked back on some level to 'staffing' provided by Bones membership somehow being employed. This includes changing the educational frameworks of your children to suit Bones ideas, to Bones' ideas of who should organize and run the privatized Federal Reserve, to Bones ideas in the privatization of military corporations and empire expansion, etc..
As for Bones in particular, originally, Bones wealth derived from the 'China Trade' opium drugrunning. And you thought that the Bush family or the CIA was the only global drugrunner! It goes back far earlier than the Bushes or the CIA, though of course all the Bushes for three generations and the CIA for 50 have been infiltrated by lots of Bonesmen as well. Overall, I am very impressed with this book.
I am very pleased with all their selections, particularly the summary research articles by the editor Kris Millegan. It has very important Antony Sutton biography information to help you understand how this research came about. Sutton was the original Bones 'outer'. He traced back this interest from a curiosity originally about how the Soviet Union got all its technology (3 volumes), to an interest in who was funding them in this technology (his "Wall Street and..." series of the 1970s), to an interest finanlly in Skull and Bones because it connected all the other stories together in the early 1980s.
Sutton's Bones books have sold steadily for over 20 years without advertizing. He says globally people simply have found it by word of mouth. One quote of his: "12,000 in Russia...!" After he was literally hounded out of U.S. academia for asking questions about Soviet technology historically and connecting it to illegal U.S. corporate fundings of the USSR from the start, he then published three "Wall Street" books in the 1970s. These were written before he even knew or researched about Bones. However, he was still attempting to understand and document how the same networks funded both the Bolsheviks and Hitler.
Only later, when another layer was revealed by a disgrunted Bonesman in 1985, did Sutton get part of the answer. This Bonesman gave Sutton--for 24 hours only--the two volume copy of Bonesmen membership--living and dead. He copied it and set it aside, because he was working on something else, and quickly returned the original books. Later when he started glancing over it, Sutton was stunned. It was the same names he had been researching for 20 years, only this was a totally unknown level of integration: a secret conspiratorial level of integration. How conspiratorial? Well, picture Brown Brothers Harriman involved in funding the USSR and the Nazi regime simultaneously. Picture Bush family in this private merchant bank. Picture Harriman being considered the "grandfather of the Democratic party" at the same moment he is working in an office with Prescott Bush, who is equally funding the Republican party, etc. And both are funding the USSR and Nazism into existence. Motivations? Plenty of them, though you have to read the book.
Sutton originally was educated in England, though became a naturalized American. His background originally was an exhaustive technical knowledge of factory and industrial technology on five continents as he worked for various mining and steel making corporations for years. He wanted to get a degree studing the interaction of econonimcs and technolgy as a dynamic engineering force, instead of simply an abstract variable. This led him to question the U.S. academic assertions that were being passed around in the United States, that "the Soviet union's technology is indigenous." Instead, he went to State Department documents to get the real story--the real story that the STate Department itself was hiding. Through his own funding for the first volume, he completed a three volume series of very scholarly books using U.S. State Department's own documents and other international documents from the USSR that were available to show the incresible covert technology and knowledge transfers that were being given away to the USSR by select U.S. corporate and state groups. He proved that the "soviet indigenous technology" theme was a cover story for a U.S government and U.S. corporations (even illegally, i.e., before the US recognized the USSR in the early 1930s) to supply everything to the Soviet Union both in terms of basic economy and in terms of military technologies. Military technologies of course were in turn used against U.S. troops, like in Vietnam for instance. One thing I was unaware of: During the 1970s, Sutton has a HUGE SPEAKING CAREER, EVEN SPEAKING TO PACKED ENTERTAINMENT VENUES in California, receiving standing ovations talking about this--particularly talking about the U.S. corporations funding the USSR military which was a hot topic as you can imagine because the USSR was supplying the North Vietnamese--and of course that means the U.S. was both supplying the North Vietnamese and the South Vietnamese. However, the national media kept Sutton's talks and popularity all under wraps.
Later, when Sutton was given the 'inside story' from the disgruntled Boneman, he understod the same institutions he was concerned about had been filled with Bonesmen--and that it was Bones-embedded instituitons that funding Hitler's National Socialism as well as Stalinist Russia.
Some information and questions dealing with the WTCs and about Bush's behavior on 9-11 are in Sutton's last article--written shortly before he died--which is enclosed in this book.
WHAT ELSE IN IN THERE?
As for what else is in the book, the book has several chapters from the very hard to find in print _George Bush: The Unauthorized Biography_ by Tarplay and Chaitkin. This can be found on the web in various places though the most hard hitting aspects of racial eugenics (pioneered by American Skull and Bones connected financial elites and then shipped to Germany) and their USSR/Hitler funding are here.
There are excellent summary research chapters by Millegan, written especially for the book.
Third, the book has some Cheryl Isberyt information (www.deliberatedumbingdown.com) dealing with eduational manipulation. She reveals some personal details: her father was Skull and Bones. She came to challenge her father's ideas of world government and educational policies. She goes into Skull and Bones influence on educational revamping. Milligan and Sutton add more to the theme of educational manipulation through discussions of how it was a 'troika' of Bonesmen in the original early generations of them that gave the United States a 'dumbing us down' educational system. Bonesmen are even responsible for the original Land Grant framework of science universities in the United States--which was immediately used to take over all the allotted lands in various states for Bones-run insttutions. Particularly, in Connecticut and New York, Bonesmen took for themselves all avaiable state lands, similar to a monopoly. In Connecticut, all available state lands for education were 'allocated' to only Yale University. Bonesmen were involved on both sides of the deal here, and Bonesmen have been Treasurers of Yale for over 100 years straight. The same story happened in New York. All lands were given to only Bonesmen, who set up Cornell University. Other Universities in these two states got...nothing...and were kept from getting anything for a long time. This went on for over a generation before there was any sharing involved. So the histories particularly of New York and Connecticut show a Bones-fiefdom in education, beginning to grow. By the way, Bonesmen were involved in setting up the California State university system and the University of Wisconsin system. They were very much involved in the University of Michigan system.
What are the Order's ideas of 'ecducation'? The origin and principles of the educational systems they sponsored? Why, the military dictatorship of Germanic Prussia. Prussian educational frameworks were installed in the United States in great part through networks of Bonesmen. Even Sutton has some interesting separate information dealing with educational planning frameworks. Both Sutton and John Taylor Gatto are actually discussing the same people by the way. Sutton mentions this point about Gatto's work.
There is a dry sociological article that is actually very useful. It is written discussing how Bones is 'necessary through insufficient' in explaining all conspiracies (duh!), though comes curiously down on the side of damning Bones anyway, saying, damn, there IS something there. If you are into 'methods' of research you will like that chapter. It is very useful to broach the topic with perhaps an academic numbskull. This is because it has one of the few written statements on comparisons between different historical methods--the accidental view of history (the 'oops! another accident' kind of historiography), vs. conspiratorial historiography, or history as plots and strategies. Personlly I feel that author set up a strawman in the separation between the two. In thinking about history, I am perfectly comfortable in having both existing side by side and in interaction instead of the 'either/or' motif that he plots out.
There is even a 'regular' political scientist, an emeritus from the University of Oregon at Portland, talking about the role of secrecy and the Constitution, and just who does it serve anyway?...
There is a great article written for a Yale University magazine itself. I belive it is about the third article into the book getting the information out to audienes that are totally new to this information.
Another interesting point: did you know that it was a Skull and Bonesman who passed the short ruling GIVING CORPORATIONS THE RIGHT OF PERSONHOOD? Yes, it was a boneman. His nane was Waite, and he was a Supreme Court Judge.
Frankly, this book is very important because it begins the huge 're-write' required to understand the history of the past 200 years. This goes for global history as well as American history. It is a history of secret societies, drug lords, and empire. If you want a 'globalization' book dealing with private histories and dynasties of those involved in globalization, this one is it.
AND VERY IMPORTANT RESOURCE! --- the book has THE BONESMEN DATABASE as an appendix covering all Bonesman, 1832-1985. Why does it stop at 1985? Well, because that the last year of the catalogue tha the disgruntled Bonemen that Antony Sutton was given all those years ago. It is finally revealed here in all its horrific, er, glory. If there is another disgrunted Bonesman out there--and both Sutton and Alexandra Robbins can vouch for that--please provide the world the 1985-2004 official lists. We have a right to know who is attempting to manipulate whole societies and to what purposes.
By the way, an interesting sidenote: Antony Sutton died 3 weeks before everything was getting set for the final publication and He was getting excited according to Millegan because he knew the press would be wanting to talk to him. Then, voila, he's dead. Read the book for yourself.
AND THE HEINZ FORTUNE that is connected to John Kerry through his wife! The original Heinz was Skull and Bones as well, early 1930s! Wonder how many S&B contacts he was helped by. Of coruse this Heinz dies (under suspicious circumstances), and Kerry--another Skull and Bones--marries his widow! Presnetly, Kerry/widow-Heinz have around 750 million dollars... Keeping the Bone$ in the family...
Other books that this book touch on incidentally are John Taylor Gatto's _The Underground History of American Education_ http://www.johntaylorgatto.com . Next, a nice supplement to this book would be McGowans's _Understanding the F-Word: American Fascism and the Politics of Illusion_--as long as you understand before you read his book that Bonesmen are playing both sides that he is talking about instead of only the Nazis. Bones were instrumental in setting up much funding for both totalitarian frameworks of the 20th Century, Lenin/Stalin and Hitler.
Other Bonesmen from a quick glance of the appendix:
Did you know that LEWIS LAPHAM is Skull and Bones, the long term editor/writer/guider of Harper's Magazine? and MR. HEINZ (Skull and Bones, the massive multi-million sauces empire--Kerry (Skull and Bones) married Teresa Heinz, his widow) were in the same. There seem to be a lot of S&B at the New Yorker Magazine over the years as well. I'll go over it in more detail later. Just a little point I thought you should know re: the Heinz fortune? Well that guy was Skull and Bones as well!!
In conclusion, if Bones tell each other to keep the grandfather clock wound obviously for some occult rationale or symbolism about ongoing planning, this book is set to smash the clock. First, you have to smash your own intentionally designed cultural amnesia to be able to get into the Tomb...
