Book Excerpt: The Legend of Skull and Bones
Sometime in the early 1830s, a Yale student named William H. Russell – the future valedictorian of the class of 1833 – traveled to Germany to study for a year. Russell came from an inordinately wealthy family that ran one of the United States’ most despicable business organizations of the nineteenth century: Russell and Company, an opium empire. Russell would later become a member of the Connecticut State Legislature, agGeneral in the Connecticut National Guard, and the founder of the Collegiate and Commercial Institute in New Haven. While in Germany, Russell befriended the leader of an insidious German secret society that hailed the death.s head as its logo. Russell soon became caught up in this group, itself a sinister outgrowth of the notorious eighteenth century society of the Illuminati. When Russell returned to the U.S., he found an atmosphere so anti-Masonic that even his beloved Phi Beta Kappa, the honor society, had been unceremoniously stripped of its secrecy. Incensed, Russell rounded up a group of the most promising students in his class – including Alphonso Taft, the future Secretary of War, Attorney General, Minister to Austria, Ambassador to Russia, and father of future President William Howard Taft – and out of vengeance constructed the most powerful secret society the United States has ever known.
The men called their organization the “Brotherhood of Death,” or, more informally, “The Order of Skull and Bones.” They adopted the numerological symbol 322 because their group was the second chapter of the German organization, founded in 1832. They worshipped the goddess Eulogia, celebrated pirates, and covertly plotted an underground conspiracy to dominate the world.
Fast forward 170 years. Skull and Bones has curled its tentacles into every reach of American society. This tiny club has set up networks that have thrust three members to the most powerful political position in the world. And its power is only increasing – the 2004 Presidential election might showcase the first time each ticket has been led by a Bonesman. The secret society now, as one historian admonishes, is “‘an international mafia’ . . . unregulated and all but unknown.” In its quest to create a New World Order that restricts individual freedoms and places ultimate power solely in the hands of a small cult of wealthy, prominent families, Skull and Bones has already succeeded in infiltrating nearly every major research, policy, financial, media, and government institution in the country. Skull and Bones, in fact, has been running the United States for years.
Skull and Bones cultivates its talent by selecting members from the junior class at Yale University, a school known for its strange, Gothic elitism and its rigid devotion to the past. The society screens its candidates carefully, favoring Protestants, or, now, white Catholics, with special affection for the children of wealthy, East Coast Skull and Bones members. Skull and Bones has been dominated by approximately two dozen of the country.s most prominent families – Bush, Bundy, Harriman, Lord, Phelps, Rockefeller, Taft, and Whitney, among them – who are encouraged by the society to inter-marry so that the society.s power is consolidated. In fact, the society forces members to confess their entire sexual histories so that Skull and Bones, as a eugenics overlord, can determine whether a new Bonesman will be fit to carry on the bloodlines of the powerful Skull and Bones dynasties. A rebel will not make Skull and Bones; nor will anyone whose background in any way indicates that he will not sacrifice for the greater good of the larger organization.
As soon as initiates are allowed into the “tomb,” a dark, windowless crypt in New Haven with a roof that serves as a landing pad for the society’s private helicopter, they are sworn to silence and told they must forever deny that they are members of this organization. During initiation, which involves ritualistic psychological conditioning, the juniors wrestle in mud and are physically beaten – this stage of the ceremony represents their “death” to the world as they have known it. They then lie naked in coffins, masturbate, and reveal to the society their innermost sexual secrets. After this cleansing, the Bonesmen give the initiates robes to represent their new identities as individuals with a higher purpose. The society anoints the initiate with a new name, symbolizing his rebirth and re-christening as Knight X, a member of The Order. It is during this initiation that the new members are introduced to the artifacts in the tomb, among them Nazi memorabilia – including a set of Hitler’s silverware – dozens of skulls, and an assortment of decorative tchochkes: coffins, skeletons, and innards. They are also introduced to “the Bones whore,” the tomb’s only full-time resident, who helps to ensure that the Bonesmen leave the tomb more mature than when they entered.
Members of Skull and Bones must make some sacrifices to the society – and they are threatened with blackmail so that they remain loyal – but they are remunerated with honors and rewards, including a graduation gift of $15,000 and a wedding gift of a tall grandfather clock. Though they must tithe their estates to the society, 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 works: no one has ever publicly breathed a word about his Skull and Bones membership, ever. Bonesmen are automatically offered jobs at the many investment banks and law firms dominated by their secret society 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 influence of the cabal begins at Yale, where Skull and Bones has appropriated university funds for its own use, leaving the school virtually impoverished. Skull and Bones. corporate shell, the Russell Trust Association, owns nearly all of the university.s real estate, as well as most of the land in Connecticut. Skull and Bones has controlled Yale.s faculty and campus publications so that students cannot speak openly about the secret society. “Year by year,” the campus’ only anti-society publication stated during its brief tenure in 1873, “the deadly evil is growing.”
The year in the tomb at Yale instills within members an unwavering loyalty to Skull and Bones society. Members have been known to stab their Skull and Bones pins into their skin to keep them in place during swimming or bathing. 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.
This purpose has driven Bonesmen to ascend to the top levels of so many fields that, as one historian observes, “at any one time The Order can call on members in any area of American society to do what has to be done.” Several Bonesmen have been senators, congressmen, Supreme Court justices, and cabinet officials. There is a Bones cell in the CIA, which uses Skull and Bones as a recruiting ground because the members are so obviously adept at keeping secrets. Society members dominate financial institutions such as J.P. Morgan, Morgan Stanley Dean Witter, and Brown Brothers Harriman, where at one time more than a third of the partners were Bonesmen. Through these companies, Skull and Bones provided financial backing to Adolf Hitler because the society then followed a Nazi – and now follows a neo-Nazi – doctrine. At least one dozen Bonesmen have been linked to the Federal Reserve, including the first Chairman of the New York Federal Reserve. Skull and Bones members control the wealth of the Rockefeller, Carnegie, and Ford families.
Skull and Bones has also taken steps to control the American media. Two of its members founded the law firm that represents the New York Times. Plans for both Time and Newsweek magazines were hatched in the Skull and Bones tomb. The society has controlled publishing houses such as Farrar, Straus, & Giroux. In the 1880s, Skull and Bones created the American Historical Association, the American Psychological Association, and the American Economic Association so that the society could ensure that history would be written under its terms and promote its objectives. The society then installed its own members as the presidents of these associations.
Under the society’s direction, Bonesmen developed and dropped the nuclear bomb and navigated the Bay of Pigs invasion. Skull and Bones members had ties to Watergate and the Kennedy assassination. They control the Council of Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission so that they can push their own political agenda. Skull and Bones government officials have used the number 322 as codes for highly classified diplomatic assignments. The society discriminates against minorities and fought for slavery; indeed, as evidence eight out of twelve of Yale.s residential colleges are named for slave owners while none are named for abolitionists. The society encourages misogyny: it did not admit women until the 1990s because members did not believe women were capable of handling the Skull and Bones experience and because they said they feared incidents of date rape. This society also encourages grave robbing: deep within the bowels of the tomb are the stolen skulls of the Apache Chief Geronimo, Pancho Villa, and former President Martin van Buren.
Finally, the society has taken measures to ensure that the secrets of Skull and Bones slip ungraspable like sand through open fingers. Journalist Ron Rosenbaum, who wrote a long but not probing article about the society in the 1970s, claimed that a source warned him not to get too close.
“What bank do you have your checking account at?” this party asked me in the middle of a discussion of the Mithraic aspects of the Bones ritual.
I named the bank.
“Aha,” said the party. “There are three Bonesmen on the board. You’ll never have a line of credit again. They’ll tap your phone. They’ll. . .”
. . . The source continued: “The alumni still care. Don’t laugh. They don’t like people tampering and prying. The power of Bones is incredible. They’ve got their hands on every lever of power in the country. You’ll see – it’s like trying to look into the Mafia.”
In the 1980s, a man known only as “Steve” had contracts to write two books on the society, using documents and photographs he had acquired from the Bones crypt. But Skull and Bones found out about Steve. The society broke into his apartment, stole the documents, harassed the author, and scared him into hiding, where he has remained ever since. The books were never completed. In Universal Pictures’ Spring 2000 thriller The Skulls, an aspiring journalist is writing a profile of the society for the New York Times. When he sneaks into the tomb, the Skulls murder him. Similarly, in the real Skull and Bones tomb is a bloody knife in a glass case. It is said that when a Bonesman stole documents from the society and threatened to publish Skull and Bones. secrets if they did not pay him a determined amount of money, the society used that knife to kill him.
This, then, is the legend of Skull and Bones.
It is astonishing that so many people continue to believe, even in modern America in the twenty-first century, that a tiny college club wields such an enormous amount of influence on the world.s only superpower. The breadth of clout ascribed to this organization is practically as wide-ranging as the leverage afforded to the satirical secret society of the Stonecutters in an episode of the television show The Simpsons. The Stonecutters theme song included the lyrics:
Who controls the British crown? Who keeps the metric system down?
We do! We do.
Who leaves the Atlantis off the maps? Who keeps the Martians under wraps?
We do! We do.
Who holds back the electric car? Who makes Steve Guttenberg a star?
We do! We do.
Certainly, the society does cross boundaries in order to attempt to stay out of the public spotlight. When I wrote an article about the society for The Atlantic Monthly in May 2000, an older Bonesman said to me, “If it’s not portrayed positively, I’m sending a couple of my friends after you.” After the article was published, I received a telephone call at my office from a fellow journalist, who is a member of Skull and Bones. He scolded me for writing the article – “writing that article was not an ethical or honorable way to make a decent living in journalism,” he condescended – and then asked me how much I had been paid for the story. When I refused to answer, he hung up. Fifteen minutes later, he called back.
“I have just gotten off the phone with our people.”
“Your people?” I snickered.
“Yes” Our people.”
He told me that the society demanded to know where I got my information.
“I’ve never been in the tomb and I did nothing illegal in the process of reporting this article,” I replied.
“Then you must have gotten something from one of us. Tell me whom you spoke to. We just want to talk to them,” he wheedled.
“I don’t reveal my sources.” Then he got angry. He screamed at me for a while about how dishonorable I was for writing the article.
“A lot of people are very despondent over this!” he yelled. “Fifteen Yale juniors are very, very upset!”
I thanked him for telling me his concerns.
“There are a lot of us at newspapers and at political journalism institutions,” he coldly hissed. “Good luck with your career” – and he slammed down the phone.
Skull and Bones, particularly in recent years, has managed to pervade both popular and political culture. In the 1992 race for the Republican presidential nomination, Pat Buchanan accused President George Bush of running “a Skull and Bones presidency.” In 1993, during Jeb Bush’s Florida gubernatorial campaign, one of his constituents asked him, “You’re familiar with the Skull and Crossbones Society?” When Bush responded, “Yeah, I’ve heard about it,” the constituent persisted, “Well, can you tell the people here what your family membership in that is? Isn’t your aim to take control of the United States?” In January 2001, New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd used Skull and Bones in a simile: “When W. met the press with his choice for attorney general, John Ashcroft, before Christmas,” Dowd wrote, “he vividly showed how important it is to him that his White House be as leak-proof as the Skull & Bones ‘tomb.'”
Later that year, the Universal Pictures film introduced the secret society to a new demographic perhaps uninitiated into the doctrines of modern-day conspiracy theory. At about the time the movie was being pre-screened in theaters – and perhaps in anticipation of the election of George W. Bush – a letter was distributed to Bonesmen from Skull and Bones headquarters. .In view of the political happenings in the barbarian world,. the memo read, .I feel compelled to remind all of the tradition of privacy and confidentiality essential to the well being of our Order and strongly urge stout resistance to the seductions and blandishments of the Fourth Estate.. This vow of silence remains the society.s most important rule. Bonesmen have been exceedingly careful not to break this code of secrecy, and have kept specific details about the organization out of the press. Indeed, given the unusual, strict written reminder to stay silent, members of Skull and Bones may well refuse to speak to any member of the media ever again.
But they have already spoken to me. When? Over the past three years. Why? Perhaps because I am a member of one of Skull and Bones’ kindred Yale secret societies. Perhaps because some of them are tired of the Skull and Bones legend, of the claims of conspiracy theorists and some of their fellow Bonesmen. What follows, then, is the truth about Skull and Bones. And if that truth does not contain all of the conspiratorial elements that the Skull and Bones legend projects, it is perhaps all the more interesting for this fact. The story of Skull and Bones is not just the story of a remarkable secret society, but a remarkable society of secrets, some with basis in truth, some nothing but fog. Much of the way we understand the world of power involves myriad assumptions of connection and control, of cause and effect, and of coincidence that surely cannot be coincidence.

Eugenics (Greek for ‘good birth’) is the study of methods to improve the human race by controlled selective breeding – bolstered by its concomitant term ‘population control’.
The colonization of the so-called ‘under-developed’, poorer countries of this world by the more ‘developed’ capitalist-orientated countries (primarily European), benefited the latter greatly – at the expense of the former. Slavery was one of the more tragic outcomes – another being that the colonizers were now imbued with racist perceptions, which led to widespread usage within the English-speaking countries of such derogatory terms as: ‘niggers/coons’; ‘coolies’; ‘wogs/rag-heads’; ‘yids’ – and-the-like.
Organizations reflecting this were subsequently set up, and the fact that the membership lists of these organizations flaunt the names of very influential politicians/statesmen, business tycoons and bankers, surely calls for a closer look at the matter. And because of America’s currently leading role in this matter, it is necessary to recall that she gained ‘independence’ as the United States of America after much infighting between the colonizers (primarily British) who had invaded that country of Indian Tribes – which led to genocidal attacks on those ‘Red Indians’. A story not unlike Britain’s colonization of Australia, with its indigenous Aborigines.
As a backdrop to this, in 1798, an English clergyman-cum-economist, Thomas Robert Malthus published a theory with eugenic (a term not then used) overtones, arguing that an un-planned population grew faster than food production – adding that famine and poverty were God’s way of coping with man’s laziness. This was a theory much-welcomed by the colonizers and the organizations mentioned above.
Moreover, the close relationship noted above between Corporate America (with its ‘Skull and Bones’-ridden Administration) and Nazi/fascist Germans makes a mockery of the former’s claim to democracy. Using eugenicists’ terminology, they could more accurately be described as ‘crypto-democrats’ (fascists).
The definition of ‘Fascism‘ in a dictionary is,
“a philosophy or system of government that advocates or exercises a dictatorship of the extreme right, typically through the merging of state and business leadership, together with the ideology of belligerent nationality”.
In plain English: capitalism lies at the core of fascism. But, as noted above, this is a fact which must be hidden by these global capitalists.
This article will consider three such organizations:
the Order of the Skull & Bones
the Eugenic Societies
Population Control organizations,
…in a more-or-less chronological order, thereby leading to a more rational grasp of the subject matter.
Of the three, the Skull & Bones (of Yale University) was the earliest formed. ‘The Order’, as it is referred to by its members, bears the aura of secrecy and freemasonry, and is a bastion of White Anglo Saxon Protestant (WASP) culture, wealth and influence.
A partial list of its more prominent members reflects said influence:
The Russell Family
William Howard Taft (his son)
Henry Lewis Stimson
Robert A Lovett (partner of merged Brown Brothers Harriman in1926)
Harold Stanley (of Morgan Stanley)
Robert A. Taft
Prescott Bush Snr.
George Herbert Walker Bush
G.W. Bush (current President)
McGeorge Bundy (National Security Advisor to JFK)
the Heinz family – et al
In other words, the ‘corporate establishment’, as it is more popularly known.
The following very brief story of its birth is intriguing, to put it mildly:
In 1823, using the old pirates’ ‘Skull & Crossbones’ as its logo, Samuel Russell founded an opium-smuggling company, Russell & Co. – and by 1829, he had bought out the Perkins & Co., which had controlled the smuggling of Turkish opium into China since 1789. In 1833, Samuel’s second cousin, William Huntington Russell and Alphonso Taft (who had served as Secretary of War under President Rutherford B. Hayes) founded the Order of Skull & Bones.
In 1856, said William Huntington Russell (who had been valedictorian of his class at Yale in 1833) incorporated Skull & Bones as the ‘Russell Trust Association’. It must be recalled here that the opium trading noted above was still being run by the British East India Company (BEIC) – Britain then being the great empire-builder – and that without Britain’s collaboration Russell & Co. would have collapsed.
Simply put – the birth of Skull & Bones (whose members are more commonly known as the ‘Bonesmen’) – was paid for by opium drug-smuggling! While on the subject of Russell & Co., it is intriguing to note that Warren Delano Jnr. (grandfather of that popular ‘democrat’, FDR), though not a ‘Bonesman’ – while acting as US Vice-Consul in Canton, acted as Chief of Operations for Russell during the Opium War of 1839 – ’42, which resulted in the legalization of opium in China, and the acquisition of Hong Kong by the British.
“the science of improvement of the human race germ plasm through better breeding” – adding that the poor were biologically inferior – and he further advocated state intervention to solve the problem.
In the 1860’s, Francis Galton (a cousin of Charles Darwin) took this Malthusian theory (see above) a step further: in his own words he defined ‘Eugenics‘ ( a word he coined) as,
In 1904, he founded a research chair in eugenics at University College of London University.
In 1905, Dr. Alfred Ploetz and Dr. Ernst Rudin founded the Society of Race-Hygiene in Germany. (about which, more later).
In 1907, the Eugenic Education Society (which later became the Eugenic Society) was founded in England.
In 1910, the Eugenics Record Office (ERO) was founded in America. In their own words, the ERO felt that “ultimate economic betterment should be sought by breeding better people, not fewer of the existing sort.”
In 1912, the First International Eugenics Congress was held at London University. It demonstrated the growing strength of the movement especially in England, Germany and the United States. The opening speech at this congress was given by Arthur James Balfour, who had been British Prime Minister from 1902 – 5; and, as Foreign Secretary under Lloyd George from 1916 – ’19, made a deal with the Zionists whereby Britain would support the setting up of a ‘home’ for the Jews, in return for the Zionists using their considerable political clout to persuade America to enter the war against Germany. (Britain was by then in dire economic straits).
This secular Zionist group of Ashkenazi Jews were surely not entitled to a ‘homeland’ in Palestine, as their country of origin had been the Khazar Empire (which had adopted Judaism) of southern Russia.
In 1916, Margaret Sanger opened the first birth control clinic in the United States. It was renamed the Planned Parenthood Federation of America in 1942. She wrote:
” the unbalance between the birth rate of the ‘unfit’ and the ‘fit’ is admittedly the greatest present menace to civilization … The most urgent problem today is how to limit and discourage the over-fertility of the mentally and physically defective.”
In 1922, the American Eugenics Society was founded. One of its co-founders, Henry Laughlin (who had been Superintendent of the Eugenics Record Office from l910 to 1921) later became President of the Pioneer Fund, a white supremacist organization. Another co-founder, Dr. Henry Fairfield Osborn, in 1923, during a national debate on restricting immigration, spoke enthusiastically about the results of intelligence testing carried out by the Army:
“I believe those tests were worth what the war (World War I) cost, even in human life…We have learned once and for all that the Negro is not like us.”
He also became president of the Pioneer Fund from 1947 to 1956.
Well documented is the fact that in between WW1 and WW2, Prescott Bush Snr. – as an executive of W.A.Harriman & Co. (later becoming Brown Bros. Harriman) – had, through a number of mergers with German companies, helped finance Hitler’s Nazi regime. Furthermore, in 1926, as a board member of bankers Dillon Read, Major (as he then was) William Draper co-operated with W.A. Harriman & Co. (Prescott S. Bush Snr. was Vice-President then) in the handling of the corporate banking for Fritz Thyssen’s German Steel Trust. Thyssen had helped to fund the Nazi Party.
By 1931, sterilization laws had been enacted in 27 states in the United States, and by 1935 enacted in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Switzerland and Germany. As for Germany: as noted above, Ploetz and Rudin had set out an effective eugenics program which resulted in the tragic killing of millions of Jews, communists et al. by the Nazi Regime of Hitler. In fact, Rudin had been the chief architect of Law for the Prevention of Hereditary Disease in Posterity passed July 1933 four months after Hitler came to power. An intriguing aside: as noted in the Rockefeller Foundation Annual Reports 1928 1939, Rockefeller gave money for the “Kaiser Wilhelm Institute” and thus subsidized Rudin.
From 1932 – 1972, the US Public Health Service studied the natural history of syphilis in hopes of justifying treatment programs for blacks. It was called the “Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male“, and involved 600 black men–399 with syphilis and 201 who did not have the disease. Researchers told the men they were being treated for “bad blood”. In fact, the men were never given adequate treatment for their disease. Even when penicillin became the drug of choice for syphilis in 1947, researchers did not offer it to the subjects. In 1972, as a result of a New York Times article, an Ad Hoc Advisory panel reviewed the study and found that the Tuskegee Study was “ethically unjustified”.
In August 1932 – and financed by the eugenicist, Major William Draper (see above) – the third “International Conference on Eugenics” was held in New York’s American Museum of Natural History under the supervision of the International Federation of Eugenics Societies. The proceedings were dedicated to Averell Harriman’s mother, who had financed the foundation of the Eugenics Record Office back in 1910 (see above). Dr. Ernst Rudin (see above) travelled to attend the Congress via the Hamburg-Amerika line (owned by W.A. Harriman & Co) – and was unanimously elected president of the International Federation of Eugenics Societies!
A few years after WW 2, Professor Dr. Otmar Freiherr von Verschuer, who, in 1937,had been Director of the Third Reich Institute for Heredity, Biology and Racial Purity (and Josef Mengele’s mentor) founded the Institute of Human Genetics in Munster, and also became a foreign member of the American Eugenics Society.
The setting up of the state of Israel by the Zionists in 1948 was an irrational act (as implied above), the main beneficiary being America, which would now have a well-armed, suborned ally in an Arab region rich in oil. The resulting deaths of the many Arabs at the hands of the Israelis could have been stopped by America many years ago. That it was not stopped can only mean that it was in keeping with the policy of the eugenicist-dominated US Administration – after all, Arabs are merely ‘ragheads’.
In 1950 and ’51’, John Foster Dulles, then chairman of the Rockefeller Foundation (later to be appointed Secretary of State by Eisenhower), led John D. Rockefeller III on a series of world tours, “focussing on the need to stop the expansion of the non-white populations”. In 1952, Frederick Osborn (1889-1981) nephew of Henry Fairfield Osborn Sr. (see above), an officer of the American Eugenics Society/SSSB for more than 30 years, helped John D. Rockefeller III establish the Population Council in 1952, served as the council’s first administrator and was on its board of trustees for many years.
In 1958, Eisenhower appointed Draper (see above) as head of a committee to study the proper course for military aid to other countries. Draper changed the focus of the committee and recommended that the US government react to the threat of the population explosion by formulating plans to depopulate the poorer countries, as the growth of the world’s non-white population should be regarded as dangerous to the national security of the United States! Eisenhower had the sense to reject this.
“Eugenic goals are most likely to be attained under a name other than eugenics.”…
While serving in Congress – and with Draper as his ‘population expert’ – George H.W. Bush chaired the Republican Task Force on Earth Resources and Population and invited Professors William Shockley and Arthur Jensen to explain to the committee how allegedly runaway birth-rates for African-Americans were down-breeding the American population. On August 5 1969, Bush summed up the testimony his black-inferiority advocates had given to the Task Force before Congress.
With the term ‘eugenics’ now, in the Post-War period, tainted with an aura of genocide and racism, Major General Frederick Osborn, founder member of both the American Eugenics Society and the Pioneer Fund, stated the public relations problem bluntly:
In other words, the goals must be camouflaged – it would now be known as crypto-eugenics. In 1960, the British Eugenics Society agreed with this, stating “The Society’s activities in crypto-eugenics should be pursued vigorously…” – and adopted the proposal. In 1973, this resulted in the American Eugenics Society becoming the more academic-sounding ‘Society for the Study of Social Biology’. Crypto-eugenics would now be the order-of-the-day.
On June 9th 1969, Dr.D.M. MacArthur, Deputy Director of Research & Technology for the Pentagon, requested a sum of $10 million from the Congressional House Subcommittee on Appropriations to develop a new contagious micro-organism capable of destroying the human immune system – in order to counteract any possible future virus capable of affecting said human immunity. It would therefore be necessary, first, to create such a virus!
This resulted in a ‘virus’ discovered some ten years later in America which became known as ‘acquired immune deficiency syndrome‘ (AIDS). It should be stressed that this virus first appeared in America, and, as noted by Neville Hodgkinson on the website businessonline.com in May 2006: increasingly complex procedures were taken to diagnose this virus in a reliable manner – “but the basic problem – not being able to validate any of these procedures against pure virus taken from patients – still remains”.
Furthermore, he reveals in comprehensive detail, that both the HIV tests and statistics concerning AIDS have been manipulated in a duplicitous manner. It would seem that the main beneficiaries have been the pharmaceutical firms!
In April 1974, Kissinger drew up a secret plan for population control called the ‘National Security Plan of Action 200‘ (NSSM 200), which was endorsed by the National Security Decision Memorandum 314, and finally declassified in 1900. In brief, it claimed that population growth in the less-developed countries was “..creating political or even national security problems for the US”, and it would seek help from the UN Fund for Population Activities (UNFPA founded in 1969) – but stressing that it would be under US leadership.
NB: this was at a time when America was being wracked by the Watergate scandal, as a result of which its president, Richard Nixon, had to resign. At the very least, it would seem that – in the eyes of the Administration – the policy of ‘population control’ stood high in its list of priorities. In August 1974, at a meeting in Bucharest, the UN passed a resolution adopting The World Population of Action as proposed by the US delegation. It would seem that US leadership was indeed essential! The UNFPA was to hold similar meetings at 10-year intervals thereafter.
On October 2nd 1979, Robert McNamara (President of the World Bank) addressed a group of international bankers thus:
“We can begin with the most critical problem of all, population growth” ..concluding that “..either the current birth rates must come down more quickly, or the death rates must go up…There are, of course, many ways in which the death rates can go up. In a thermonuclear age, we can accomplish it very quickly and decisively” (as indeed they had done in Hiroshima and Nagasaki in1945).
Not surprising statements, coming, as they do, from a man who was Secretary of Defense during the genocidal Vietnam War – but surprising in view of the crypto-eugenic stand taken by the American Eugenics Society noted above, a stand which McNamara, a self-evidently keen eugenicist, would have certainly been aware of. It can only be assumed that he did not agree with the society’s stand, and was arrogant enough to ignore it.
In 1980, William Draper III (General Draper’s son) served as co-chairman for financing G.H.W. Bush’s campaign for the presidency that year. Reagan won and appointed Bush as his Vice President.
In 1986 – as a result of Vice President George H.W.Bush‘s advice to Reagan – William Draper III was appointed Administrator and CEO of the UN Development Program (UNDP), which was founded in 1965 by merging two existing U.N. organizations: the Expanded Program of Technical Assistance (EPTA), and the U.N. Special Fund. Since 1971, it has been responsible for coordinating all development assistance supplied by the United Nations system. UNDP was a key player in the global aid network – and the UNFPA (see above).
The foregoing is not a comprehensive list by any means – but is surely enough evidence that eugenics, population control (call it what you will) has played, and continues to play a crucial role in the policy-making of the so-called ‘developed’ countries – America in particular.
A recent event of pertinence follows: an earthquake of magnitude 9.0 on the Richter scale struck the Indian Ocean region on December 26th 2004, resulting in a Tsumani which killed approximately a quarter-of-a-million people. It was subsequently revealed that the Americans – with their European partners/acolytes – were aware of this earthquake almost immediately, as they controlled a number of seismic stations in the region (to say nothing of their earth-scouring satellites), the most important being the American military base on Diego Garcia.
However, they had not notified those countries threatened by the Tsunami. The only conclusion to be drawn from this is that this was a deliberate act on the part of the Euro-Americans, and, keeping in mind the chronological events listed above, it can justifiably be assumed that, in this instance, the eugenists and their cohort ‘Bonesmen’ had scored a hit!
Moreover, the close relationship noted above between Corporate America (with its ‘Skull and Bones’-ridden Administration) and Nazi/fascist Germans makes a mockery of the former’s claim to democracy. Using eugenicists’ terminology, they could more accurately be described as ‘crypto-democrats’ (fascists).
The definition of ‘Fascism’ in a dictionary is “a philosophy or system of government that advocates or exercises a dictatorship of the extreme right, typically through the merging of state and business leadership, together with the ideology of belligerent nationality”. This, in turn, reveals that capitalism lies at the core of fascism. But, as noted above, this is a fact which must be hidden by these global capitalists.
It is therefore imperative that this subject of eugenics/population control is subjected to far greater public scrutiny than it has received from ‘our media’ – which, after all, is in hock to its corporate owners: it says what it is paid to say!
