A War of Narratives!?
Mathophobia as a derivative of Islamophobia
U of Illinois Prof: Math is Racist
October 24, 2017
Everything is racist. Especially the stuff that the real racists are bad at.
Rochelle Gutierrez, a professor at the University of Illinois, made the claim in a new anthology for math teachers, arguing that, “On many levels, mathematics itself operates as Whiteness. Who gets credit for doing and developing mathematics, who is capable in mathematics, and who is seen as part of the mathematical community is generally viewed as White,”Also who is capable of being a professor while having the writing skills of a third grader. Shall we unpack that knapsack?
But the working formula is any useful body of knowledge embodies white supremacy because it's actually useful.
Gutierrez also worries that algebra and geometry perpetuate privilege, fretting that “curricula emphasizing terms like Pythagorean theorem and pi perpetuate a perception that mathematics was largely developed by Greeks and other Europeans."We must discover the "hidden figures" who really invented the Pythagorean theorem. Probably Trans Muslim women of color. I see a movie in it with Kevin Costner as Pythogaroas.
Math also helps actively perpetuate white privilege too, since the way our economy places a premium on math skills gives math a form of “unearned privilege” for math professors, who are disproportionately white."Unearned privilege" aside from their skill and knowledge. But it'a shame we don't place nearly as much of a premium on accusing math of being racist. Hopefully she can change that.
“Are we really that smart just because we do mathematics?” she asks, further wondering why math professors get more research grants than “social studies or English” professors.Ms. Gutierrez' work "focuses on equity issues in mathematics education".She has a B.A. in Biology, an M.A. in Social Sciences and a PhD in Education. And she's largely been an affiliate of the Latino studies department.
i think that particular question answers itself.
“If one is not viewed as mathematical, there will always be a sense of inferiority that can be summoned,” she says, adding that there are so many minorities who “have experienced microaggressions from participating in math classrooms… [where people are] judged by whether they can reason abstractly.”Whereas in her classroom students are judged by their complete inability to reason. Check your reason privilege.
Gutierrez stresses that all knowledge is “relational,” asserting that “Things cannot be known objectively; they must be known subjectively."Math is a myth. 2 + 2 = 5. If only you will it so.

‘Never underestimate the power of the dark side’: Orban goes Star Wars on EU ‘migrant invasion’

Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban has apparently called on Hungarians to beware of the power of the Sith in his latest speech on migration crisis in Europe. He also declared Eastern and Central Europe the last ‘migrant-free zone.’
"We should never underestimate the power of the dark side," the prime minister said, referencing Star Wars as he referred to the plots of those behind the “migrant invasion,” adding that they “have no solid structure but extensive networks.”
‘Christian duty to fight Satan’s Soros plan to bring migrants into Europe’ – Hungarian MP
The EU and some of its key member states have been “taken hostage” by a “speculative financial Empire” through an orchestrated “invasion of new immigrants,” Orban said in Budapest on Monday, adding that this mysterious “financial power” was behind the “latest great migration of peoples” that flooded Europe with “millions of migrants.”
“This plan was developed to make Europe a mixed [multicultural] continent,” the prime minister said at an event commemorating the anniversary of the 1956 anti-Soviet uprising in Hungary, adding that “only we managed to stand up against it,” apparently referring to the governments of Hungary, Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, which have taken a staunch anti-migrant stance and refused to accept refugee quotas imposed by Brussels.
Orban then declared Central and Eastern Europe the continent’s last "migrant-free zone." The Hungarian leader expressed the hope that, by acting together, Hungary, Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia could potentially stop mass immigration.
He went on to say that the ultimate goal of the massive inflow of migrants into Europe consisted of depriving it of its Christian and national identity. The prime minister then stressed that Europe should remain "safe, fair, civic, Christian and free" and should regain the splendor he said it had before embracing multiculturalism.
Orban’s remarks concerning the “financial power” behind the mass immigration apparently referred to the Hungarian-born US billionaire George Soros. The Hungarian prime minister has already accused Soros of seeking to create a "new, mixed, Muslimized Europe” in July. He also repeatedly blamed the tycoon of fueling the refugee crisis in Europe, adding that “Brussels has come under George Soros’s influence.”

Orban’s words were echoed by Hungarian MP Andras Aradszki, who claimed that “Soros and his comrades want to destroy the independence and values of nation states” by bringing migrants into Europe. He slammed the billionaire by calling him “Satan” earlier this month.
Orban’s latest remarks also come as Central and Eastern European countries witness a shift to the right. In Austria, two anti-migrant parties took the first two places in the parliamentary election, and are now expected to form the ruling coalition.
Soros and EU striving for ‘mixed, Muslimized Europe’, says Hungarian PM Orban
Just a week later, parliamentary elections in the Czech Republic ended up in a victory of an anti-establishment movement headed by a local billionaire dubbed “the Czech Donald Trump,” who is particularly known for his severe criticism of the EU’s immigration policies.
Hungary itself is engaged in a bitter row with the EU over the refugee relocation quotas, together with Poland and Slovakia. The issue dates back to the EU decision made in 2015 to rehouse some 160,000 refugees from Greece and Italy over a period of two years, only around 27,700 of whom have been settled so far.
Budapest also faces pressure over the fence that covers one-quarter of the length of its borders and was designed to stop the inflow of migrants and asylum seekers at the peak of the refugee crisis. Despite repeated criticism from many European countries, Hungary refuses to remove it and claims that it has helped to cut the inflow of migrants by 99.7 percent since 2015.

Barbara Maat a very important watch.
Tony Bermanseder There is beneficial use and abuse. Without the ubiquitous recording of day to day events, say Las Vegas or Barcelona; the mainstream ignored details of police and state brutality etc would remain to be hidden and obscured. This would greatly hinder the global awakenings of the misinformed to the true agendas of the echeloners and controlleurs. This beneficial use of super technology (actually ET) becomes however subject to abuse by puerile and immature human minds, just as E=mc2 can as has been weaponised and destroy entire civilisations potentially. So your presentation is entirely appropriate to expose the mental manipulations by the abusers. But it is the technological potential which is abused not the technology itself.
in total agreement.
the caution is at which point does the abuse obscure the acuity of vision needed to pursue the useful benefit.
at this juncture i see that the major 'benefit' of technology innovation is directed in two directions, the subjugation of the general masses on the one hand and the seclusion of true benefit to the classes who can afford them. take medical technology as one example. there are astounding processes being developed that are simply not available to the man on the street. whether or not they will be is the question. war innovation is another. as is space exploration. little of these miraculous innovations are used to actually forward our common advancement.
i for one see the presence of a capability like facebook or the internet as a paradigm shift in social awareness. i also see how it is being manipulated for it's ability to nurture the lowest common denominator. it will be up to us to take the best and leave the rest, but not entirely up to us. we must first recognize and deter the forces that will resist that.

so which is it? am i a luddite or simply tech free?
Jillian Parker If you were Luddite, you wouldn't appear on the Book of Faces.
Dominic Albanese not true...and I am here and I am a certified member in good standing of the Luddite brigade
Jillian Parker OK I sit corrected, Dominic Albanese. I thought the true Luddites are a bit like the Amish, not espousing such devices.
Dominic Albanese no...well maybe...but for me I go so far but no further..this to me is now grown a bit uncomfortable...almost addictive...and I have had my share of that shit to last three life times...I do find my self run home and see who *liked* me ahahahah but...I also see people stare at the phone all day in fact rudely so...and...like fashion or trends of any kind..I mean...OK I used to like Hill ST Blues but I did not buy a Hill st T shirt...OK and trekkies or star wars lunacy..all comes under that heading to me....I have a computer but I will be dipped in hot oil before I let a computer have me

Dominic Albanese hysteria....remember this...2000 was the end of the world for 9 million goonies...and this...whole brave new bullshit is just because TV ads have lost the bite....this is consumerism on steroids...only that .....tech...let me tell you some thing....the valve train on a 66 Ferrari is a as high tech as any of this digital....but it cost even then 30 time what regular cars cost...all just the evolution of commerce...when robots can fix fishing reels I might have a bit more to worry bout
Barbara Maat it's not about robots (but some of it is). it is about us becoming robots it's called technocracy and it is in full swing. sorry i don't agree that it's just about tv ads losing bite and fixing reels, although i highly recommend fixing reels.
Dominic Albanese we are it seems butting heads of late...listen to me...OK..religion is exactly the same thing...get enough people to swallow the bullshit and you got a *congregation* it is not gonna be...the invasion of the mind gang or any of that hysteria ..but the weak and soft minded are indeed very easy to fool
Barbara Maat we are going to keep butting heads on some things. i think you do not go where i go when i seek information. i think that our field of vision is quite different, our linkages are different, our syntheses are different. it is clear to me that you do not see what i see. i see the sweep of the present into the near future very clearly. you see the present framed by your grasp of history. one is learned the other is intuitive. i have a mantic eye. i see the future that they imagine. i literally see their vision. and i see it being implemented everywhere in a thousand thousand ways. this information collates and coalesces in a way that is undeniable to me. we simply need to understand that we hold different pieces of the same enormous puzzle. i will listen to yours and you may do as you wish.
Barbara Maat they are training the coming generations almost from the womb now. technology is ubiquitous and it is very clearly evolving to certain ends. and certainly it is controlled by those who wish those ends. it is not like belief. this is straight to the synapse. this is addiction as a first step. you know about addiction. that's just the start.
Barbara Maat decades ago it was proven that a rat would electrocute himself to death in pursuit of a morsel or a man would at a signal fire a bullet into a president's head. it's synaptic.
Barbara Maat you can escape it still, almost, at least enough to be functional. but only if you make a concerted effort. those who don't grasp what is occurring have no need to try and escape it. they simply will be it.
Barbara Maat but i always hold out that the best laid plans of mice and men oft do go astray. i do.
Barbara Maat but it won't be because it isn't happening. it is.
Jillian Parker I decided to look at Luddite more carefully as a term. https://www.smithsonianmag.com/.../what-the-luddites.../ I like the questions asked by this article.
What the Luddites Really Fought Against
The label now has many meanings, but when…
Jillian Parker "Getting past the myth and seeing their protest more clearly is a reminder that it’s possible to live well with technology—but only if we continually question the ways it shapes our lives. It’s about small things, like now and then cutting the cord, shutting down the smartphone and going out for a walk. But it needs to be about big things, too, like standing up against technologies that put money or convenience above other human values. If we don’t want to become, as Carlyle warned, “mechanical in head and in heart,” it may help, every now and then, to ask which of our modern machines General and Eliza Ludd would choose to break. And which they would use to break them."
Barbara Maat there won't be choices in many instances, not without great resistance. the smart grid is one. digital currency is another. as is the new universal ID. genetic bot tech will be difficult to avoid as well. and then there is the amazon drone at your door. choice is not the first option you will be given.
Barbara Maat "continually question" is the key here. and that will necessarily need to be expanded into a resistance. they don't intend to take no for an answer.
Barbara Maat and that is one of the most salient points. the first step is to addict, the second is to make it impossible to not participate.
Jillian Parker Maybe I'm more optimistic because my eldest is a software developer? Because I see bright and beautiful youth involved in these projects, and I have faith in their hearts? In any case, I hear you.
Barbara Maat Jillian Parker yes, there is always the higher path. and such heights as to be breathtaking. may it go that way. a deus ex machina.
Barbara Maat but the extant old generation is foul in heart i fear. timing will be everything.
Ian Hall ''What we own, owns us'' Tyler Durden. As for the frame breakers (what we refer to as Luddites), they got out there and broke some frames
Tony Bermanseder You are mindfully evolving in a magnificent manner hummyb. The wisdom keepers like Andrew are rather proud of your developments, mentally and emotionally that is. The 'controlleurs' are well aware of how to curtail and hinder this selfsame mental evolution of the human collective group mind and matrix consciousness. But their well planned agendas are mirrored in a necessary parallel they do fear more than anything else human creativity can envisage and attempt to make manifest. So there is yet hope for beneficial outcomes and this faith in some intrinsic 'goodness' of the human all encompassing master plan transcends all belief systems, including that of the 'echeloners'. Because alone they are with a certain nous eschewing their agendas. But they are well aware of that. The next 4 years will be decisive but our generation is indeed the last one, the pioneering one to bring in a change of the planetary stewardship. As many realise now. The future of the next generation after us has been stolen by mental manipulation and basic universal ignorance by the echeloners; an ignorance aka sinfulness regarding the nous and purpose the raison d' etre of the creation and universe itself. Keep your faith and seek the company of the aforementioned keepers of the cosmic wisdom of a new world in gestation Barbara Hummingbird.
Tony Bermanseder The science of the technocracy is well aware about the power of human emotion and has used this for a century or so in an applied manner of modus operandi. As consciousness (and the concept of God) is defined in the acceleration of the quantum nature in a holographic universe and cosmology; the changes in human moods and 'feelings' from say euphoria to depression are well defined scientifically as such quantum accelerations. It is because of the scientific nature of the 'feeling reality' that the echeloners were able implement their control systems now encompassing core education to academia and of course all political, socio-economic and religious edifices of all infested 'cultures'. For the scientifically literate; what is called mind and consciousness and cognisance can be quantum defined as the dynamic of anything occupying any space. The evolution of the universe then engages its own expanding consciousness in its parts, say all static and dynamic forms of what is called life. Technically this becomes a dynamic interaction between higher (collapsed or conifolded) and lower (expanded or unfolded) dimensions in terms of a vibrational membrane physics, which is based on the size of the electron and the change in frequency over time (df/dt), which is defined as the quantum angular acceleration or 'spin' of all of existent forms of energy.
Tony Bermanseder The political 'spin factory' of the echeloners so is founded on valid cosmological principles and 'laws of nature'; but a necessary dichotomy in the wave-particle duality remains relatively obscured to them. But the pioneering generation of the wisdom keepers has access to this 'missing data' relative to the immoral but ethically lawful purity of their minds. This requires a new adaptation of the older motto of a feeling heart and a thinking mind towards its synthesis and synergy of a thinking heart of the nous and gnosis of the male goddog and a feeling mind of the sophia of the female doggod goddess. This indicates your evolutionary path, you are graduating towards in an enchanting manner.
Barbara Maat Tony Bermanseder i have to chuckle. when andy came to me he was fresh out of his izod shirts and genteel middle class comforts. he was a 'republican' of the highest order. we laughed about that. it was he who came to see more clearly into the matters at hand.
but it was he who regenerated my loving embrace of the irrepressible magic and sublimity in all things. we were a good pair. yes, the goodness, the promise in man cannot be extinguished. i have never believed so. this is simply a time when the balance is being tested, the pathways being decided, but the struggle is real. and the struggle is consciousness. both of the light and the shadow.
Tony Bermanseder You are a 'good pair' as you are 'cosmically cored' in perpetuity of the universal wave-particle duality, which is potentially a synergy between the Descartian mind-body divide.
Briefly, Mind and Body separated in sexual differentiation (yin yang symbol say) become a universal generality in say male nous/science aka gnosis of the mind as a waveform creator and female sophia aka wisdom of the body-creation.
Then your old secondary mind and your old primary female body can literally twin or mirror themselves in adding a male primary mindform to your primary bodyform and a secondary male bodyform to your secondary female mindform. You then become a 'cosmic twin' or androgyne (in the mysterious saying of Jesus about the Children of the Resurrection not getting married in the New World and similar ET encodings Luke.20.27-40).
You so become a universal unique core which 'heals' the universal separation between the Descartian Mind-Body divide aka the Chicken-Egg paradox aka the DNA-RNA order aka the quantum wave-particle duality of Schroedinger's Cat in literally 'doubling' yourself from your old state of Mind+Body to a new state of MindBody+BodyMind.
There are many details of course, which could be added, but I know you are feeling this already in some elementary form and this suffices for the present time hummybee.
Btw it was Andrew, who asked me to call you that to ease your sense of separatedness from him. He is your universal core and in time you will know much better what this means and implies.
But his secondary body is within you, just as your secondary mind is encompassed by his. You are quantum entangled in the macro sense technically labelled. In a simple way, you could say that Andrew's particle form has collapsed into your womb to allow this 'cosmic coring' to proceed towards reunification in the new World stipulated. The experience of human love and sexual attraction then proceeds and evolves in two forms physical and mental. Your present status of the separation is necessary to manifest a transition from an old quantum eigenstate into a new quantum selfstate uniquely and individually expressed as say in the ancient archetype of Virtruvian man becoming Vitruvius ManWoman and Vitruvia WomanMan.
On such nomenclature and lexicon depends the creation mythos of global cultures, such as the nature and meaning of Genesis and the 'Rib of Adam'.
Barbara Maat we were indeed man/woman/woman/man. the lines blurred between us. true androgyne. tony you could not know this but there was a moment when his form slipped into mine just before the end. his cheekbones became mine, his brow, all of him. took up a gentle residence. it is indelible.
Tony Bermanseder I know and your experience is what I meant when saying that technically his particle wavefunction collapsed into your womb. And because it literally did, Andrew could transmit his new state from his opened wavefunction as a mirror for the collapse of the particular form. But rest assured, his old particular function is as individual as ever in say a higher dimensional 'shadow' form.
FUTURE SHADOWS OF THE PAST
The Presence of the Mosaic implies the will of Unity=God=Starhumanity and not the will of Humanity=Man=Separation!
"A most wondrous thing the Shadow is, a redeemer in all to succour;
it can go where the light cannot abide, seemingly banished, it is not.
For where the light is, the darkness flees, no longer present to endure;
so to become illuminated is its destined journey and its troubled lot.
But without the light, no Shadow can be cast, its such a splendid key;
the dimensions reduce in space from three to two and all in just the one.
Betwixt the light and the darkness it is and part of both for all to see;
the Shadow of the body, does it not merge all in its rule under the sun?
Whatsoever can cast a Shadow, must be a most wondrous thing to relay;
as nature's very own offspring, the young ones grow towards their final goal.
Enabled to bring peace to so many things appearing apart and so far away;
the reconciliation for the suffering body with its spirit and its scattered soul."

Deep State Secret Societies: Skull & Bones, Bohemians, Illuminati
Written by Alex Newman
Secret societies such as the Bohemian Grove and Skull and Bones play a major role in American affairs and have for generations; that much is clear and well-documented. But most Americans have paid little attention to what happens outside of the media spotlight — until now. In recent months, public perceptions have started to change as the “Deep State” exposes itself publicly in its war against America, the Constitution, humanity, and President Donald Trump. And in fact, thanks to hacked e-mails and public statements by members, it is now proven that many of the swamp creatures involved in the occult secret societies of America see Trump as a “disaster.”
Amid an unprecedented and highly coordinated campaign to destroy Trump, first as a candidate and later as a president, a fast-growing segment of the American electorate has realized that “We The People” have not been getting the full story. As part of that awakening, the concept of a “Deep State” or shadowy “swamp” working behind the scenes has captured the public imagination. The idea is now as “mainstream” as can be: Even establishment-media polls show about half of Americans now recognize definitively that the Deep State exists. Even the establishment press — a key component of the Deep State — has now acknowledged that the Deep State exists, if only to muddy the waters about its true nature. But in this series, The New American magazine plans to connect the dots.
It is true that the entrenched, anti-Trump federal bureaucracy — and especially the self-styled “intelligence community” — are crucial elements of the Deep State. But behind that Deep State is another Deep State; the “Deep State Behind the Deep State,” if you will, or the ruling establishment. Parts of this network are not quite secret. For example, in a recent article in this series on the Deep State, The New American highlighted the enormous role played by the semi-secret Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderberg meetings, and other such outfits. But beyond those organizations, which operate websites and even release full or partial lists of members, are other organizations that are even more secretive. They remain largely unknown to the American people. But such “secret societies” have been working to spread their lawless doctrines in America since before it was even formally an independent self-governing nation.
The Historical Illuminati
Even America's first president, George Washington, was deeply concerned about the insidious machinations and influence of one particular secret society, and its infiltration in America. “It is not my intention to doubt that the doctrine of the Illuminati and the principles of Jacobinism had not spread in the United States,” Washington wrote in a letter to a friend. “On the contrary, no one is more satisfied of this fact than I am.” America's most prominent founding father also warned of the Illuminati's “diabolical tenets” being spread in America in a 1798 letter to Reverend G. W. Snyder, who had sent him a book on the society. Also in 1798, then-Yale President Timothy Dwight warned that the Illuminati was willing to use “murder, butchery, and war” to overthrow religion, government, and civilization. More than a few scholars recognized that the goals of these conspirators included overthrowing all the governments and religions of Europe to build a cosmopolitan so-called “brotherhood of man” while undermining family and property rights.
The historical Order of the Illuminati Washington and Dwight warned of was a secret society founded in Bavaria on May 1, 1776, by Adam Weishaupt, a professor of law at Ingolstadt University. According to Abbé Augustin Barruel in his book Memoirs Illustrating the History of Jacobinism, Weishaupt had been inspired by the teachings of 18th-century anti-Christian fanatics from France styling themselves “philosophers” such as Voltaire, Rousseau, and Diderot. The Illuminati's operations were first widely exposed to the public in the 1797 book Proofs of a Conspiracy Against All the Religions and Governments of Europe Carried on in the Secret Meetings of Freemasons, Illuminati and Reading Societies by John Robison, a university professor, Freemason, and the first general secretary to the Royal Society of Edinburgh. Even Washington had a copy of the important book in his library, according to the National Archives. Professor Robison documented, among other actions by the conspirators, the Illuminati's lead role in the murderous, barbarous French Revolution that tore France apart so badly that she never fully recovered.
The secret society of self-styled “Illuminated” ones became incredibly influential by attracting influential men and infiltrating the Masonic lodges of Europe, according to scholars who have studied it. Officially, though, the historical outfit known as the Illuminati, based on concentric circles of influence and secrets surrounding an inner core of conspirators, was said to have been disbanded after its wicked scheming was discovered by Bavarian authorities. The authorities informed their counterparts in other jurisdictions, some of whom also attempted to suppress the society. However, the Illuminati's subversive doctrines and ideas — described as “diabolical” by America's first president — clearly survived. Virtually the same evil principles articulated by Weishaupt and his band of criminals were articulated in The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx and Fredrich Engels, for example. Today, many of those doctrines are taught as “truth” in American universities. And as Robison documented, the conspirators continued spreading their subversion across Europe.
More than a few prominent individuals have highlighted the role of Weishaupt (his Illuminati code-name was “Spartacus”) and the movement he founded in laying the groundwork for the modern-day global effort to bring down Christianity, liberty, and civilization. “From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, and down to Trotsky (Russia), Bela Kun (Hungary), Rosa Luxembourg (Germany), and Emma Goldman (United States) ... this worldwide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilisation and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality, has been steadily growing,” wrote future Prime Minister Winston Churchill in the U.K. Illustrated Sunday Herald in February of 1920. “It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the 19th century; and now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their heads and have become practically the undisputed masters of that enormous empire.”
Skull and Bones: Brotherhood of Death
By their very nature, “secret” societies are secret, and hence, difficult for outsiders to track and understand — that is, after all, the point of being “secret.” And so the relationship between historical organizations such as the Illuminati and modern-day secret societies, assuming there is a relationship, is murky at best. But secret societies that bear striking similarities in terms of practicing occultism, totalitarian ideology, subversive practices, obsessive secrecy, hatred of Christianity, and more continue to exist — even in America, today. One such organization operating in the United States today is known as the Skull and Bones society. It exists at Yale University, and is sometimes known as the “Brotherhood of Death.” It was founded in 1832 by William H. Russell, whose family was in the opium business, shortly after his return from Germany. The German connection has led many analysts to speculate that Skull and Bones may be an American branch of an international movement — potentially even the Illuminati. But that is simply speculation at this point.
Among other concerns expressed by critics are the deeply occult rituals the society is known to engage in. These include bizarre, death-obsessed ceremonies that initiates are required to participate in if they wish to join. For instance, it has been widely reported, thanks to investigations and secret video tapes, that initiates are required to lie in a coffin while engaging in acts that cannot be repeated here while detailing their sexual history to their fellow “bonesmen,” as members are known. Footage of some of the society's bizarre rituals, which take place at a location known as “The Tomb,” has emerged in recent years. In film that was aired in 2001 by ABC News, for example, bonesmen can be seen and heard engaging in occult rituals involving, among other things, kissing human skulls, followed by what was described by the ABC host as a mock killing. The screams caught on tape are bloodcurdling.
While the society has largely operated from the shadows since its founding, it did earn some attention during the 2004 presidential election between then-President George W. Bush and then-Senator John Kerry (D-Mass.). Both were members of the society. In separate interviews, late Meet the Press host Tim Russert asked them about it, but got no real answer. “It's so secret we can't talk about it,” Bush responded. Kerry, when asked what it means that both he and Bush are members of Skull and Bones, said: “Not much, because it's a secret ... I wish there were something secret I could manifest, there are all kinds of secrets.” Bush also mentioned it in his autobiography: “My senior year I joined Skull and Bones, a secret society, so secret I can’t say anything more.” In other words, Americans were given a choice between two members of the same occult secret society, and neither candidate would say a word about it what the implications were.
Aside from the two presidential candidates in 2004, many “Bonesmen,” as they are known, have served at the highest levels of government, ranging from cabinet secretaries and senators to CIA bosses and Supreme Court justices and presidents. Among the prominent members: former President George H.W. Bush; James Jesus Angleton, credited with “mothering” the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA); neocon journal National Review founder William F. Buckley, Jr., a CIA agent and CFR member who advocated the denial of voting rights to black people while purporting to “purge” true conservatives from the “conservative” movement; Secretary of War Henry Stimson; Austan Goolsbee, chairman of President Barack Obama’s Council of Economic Advisors; leftist Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank; George H.W. Bush’s father, Senator Prescott Bush, who was embroiled in legal troubles for financing the Nazi war machine; multiple CFR founders and leaders; Frederick Smith, the founder of FedEx; Harold Stanley, founder of Morgan Stanley; international mega-banker Averill Harriman; Secretary of Defense Robert Lovett; and both President William Howard Taft and his son, Senator Robert A. Taft. Multiple Rockefellers have also been involved. While not all members go on to powerful positions, many certainly do.
Still today, little is known about the group, which unsurprisingly uses a skull and crossbones as a logo along with the number 322. But multiple investigations have been carried out by researchers over the years. Perhaps the most important was the book America’s Secret Establishment: An Introduction to the Order of Skull and Bones by Stanford University historian Antony Sutton. In essence, the book argues that Skull and Bones is a “recruiting ground for a global conspiracy for world government,” as history professor, author, and The New American writer Steve Byas explained. Sutton explains how the Bonesmen and their co-conspirators use the Hegelian dialectic to advance their agenda. “In this [dialectical] process change requires conflict, and conflict requires the clash of opposites,” he explains. “You can’t just have a ‘right,’ you must have a ‘right’ and a ‘left.’” Sutton wrote other incredible books exposing the Deep State behind the Deep State's role in promoting communism, including Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution. He also wrote the book Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler. And with researcher Patrick Wood, he wrote Trilaterals Over Washington, focusing on the Trilateral Commission. Each book offers crucial insight into the Deep State behind the Deep State.
Another secret cabal operating in America is the Bohemian Grove, which attracts American presidents, cabinet secretaries, Big Business titans, mega-bankers, central bankers, “intelligence” agency bosses, military brass, and other leading Deep State characters. The outfit was founded after the Civil War by Henry Harry Edwards, originally as a club for artists, writers, journalists, and other “Bohemians” to get together and relax. Since then, though, the outfit has grown to include more than 2,500 of the world's richest and most powerful men — and only men are invited. While total secrecy is demanded from members, the membership rolls have included every GOP president (except Trump) since the early 1920s, along with many Democrats such as Jimmy Carter, as well as countless cabinet secretaries, leaders of Big Business, CIA chiefs, banking magnates, media barons, and more.
During the United Nations’ 1945 founding conference (chaired by Soviet spy Alger Hiss) in San Francisco, delegates from around the world were invited, too. “The Club and its members were major players in hosting the UN Delegates,” wrote scholar Peter Phillips in his dissertation for his doctorate in philosophy at the University of California, Davis. “Receptions for UNCIO delegates and key dignitaries were held at the Bohemian Club on May 17th, May 29th, June 4th and June 5th. Towards the end of the UN conference the Club invited all delegates to a program at the Grove.”
While the club's motto is “Weaving Spiders Come Not Here,” it is a known fact that plenty of official business is conducted there, especially at the lodges and camps. To get a sense of just how important in public affairs this occult confab is to the Deep State behind the Deep State, consider that former President Richard Nixon boasted of how crucial a speech he gave at the event was on his journey to the White House. “If I were to choose the speech that gave me the most pleasure and satisfaction in my political career, it would be my Lakeside Speech at the Bohemian Grove in July, 1967,” he explained. “Because this speech traditionally was off the record, it received no publicity at the time. But in many important ways it marked the first milestone on my road to the presidency. It was an emotional assignment for me and also an unparalleled opportunity to reach some of the most important and influential men.”
Aside from the power and influence are the occult ceremonies and the perversion that have become practically synonymous with the Bohemian Grove. For one, the men — among the world's most influential — are known to prance around the redwood forest naked and inebriated, urinating at will throughout the camp. More sinister, though, are the dark rituals, widely described as pagan at best or satanic at worst, that have been documented on video as occurring there. Perhaps most infamous is the ceremony involving what members claim is a “mock” human sacrifice known as the “Cremation of Care.” During the spectacle, the robed and hooded men gather, some carrying torches, under a 40-foot-tall owl idol that is widely said to be a representation of the Canaanite demon god Moloch, to whom babies and children were routinely sacrificed. Amid bizarre chanting and horrifying screaming, what members claimed was an “effigy” of a child is burned up as a sacrifice to the giant concrete owl.
Conservative radio talk-show titan Alex Jones once managed to sneak into the club and capture the occult ritual on video camera. It is even creepier than you might imagine. Jones posted the video online, offering the first known footage of the ceremony to the public — and confirming the existence and occult nature of a ceremony that had long been just the subject of unconfirmed rumors. Blurry still photographs of the event from a century ago provide evidence that the occult ritual has been going on for at least that long.
Later, Jones interviewed David Gergen, a regular attendee of Bohemian Grove and a leading advisor to four different presidents of both parties. Jones mentioned that Gergen had denied in media reports that he ran around naked at the confab, as other attendees are known to do, but did admit to being a “happy member” of Bohemian Grove who likes the folks who come there. “Have you been there for the ceremony, the Cremation of Care?” Jones asked. Gergen responded: “Frankly, I do not think that is something I need to talk to you about.” Apparently Gergen was confused, believing that Jones had been a member who did not follow his pledge not to disclose what goes on there publicly. “I don't respect you for that,” Gergen fumed. “You took an understanding that you would not do that film, and you did.” Of course, Jones took no oath and offered no “understanding,” because he went in without authorization.
Another one of the things that is known about the Bohemian Grove is that members were unsettled by then-candidate Trump and his promises to fight globalism, take on the establishment, promote Americanism, and pursue an “America First” policy. In a hacked e-mail posted by DCLeaks from former Secretary of State Colin Powell to Peter Gordon MacKay, Canada's former minister of justice, attorney general, minister of national defense, and minister of foreign affairs, Powell drops a bombshell. “I am back from the Bohemian Grove. Surprise, surprise, I sat next to [Canadian Prime Minister] Stephen Harper a couple of times and had a nice discussion,” wrote Powell, one of the leading figures in lying the American people into the Iraq war that resulted in the practical extermination of the ancient Christian communities there. “Grove attendees know that Trump is a disaster,” Powell continued, adding that “most will vote against” Trump.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, himself affiliated with the Bohemian Grove, explained that the establishment's disdain for Trump was related to the fact that the current president was not involved in the secret societies. Responding to Mitt Romney's attacks on Trump, Gingrich, who did back the president, said the attacks were a signal of “the panic of the establishment wing of the (Republican) Party.” The possibility of Trump winning the GOP nomination “absolutely drives them crazy,” Gingrich added. When asked why, Gingrich dropped a bombshell. “Well because he’s an outsider, he’s not them, he’s not part of the club, he’s uncontrollable, he hasn’t been through the initiation rites, he didn’t belong to the secret society,” said the former House Speaker, who apparently was seeking a job in the Trump administration.
Beyond those secret and non-secret organizations that make up the Deep State behind the Deep State, there are almost certainly other cabals of totalitarian-minded globalists whose names and even members remain largely unknown to the public. Indeed, there are likely secret societies that are so secret they remain virtually unknown to any non-members. Some of the secret history these societies have tried to erase is documented in Art Thompson's book To the Victor Go the Myths & Monuments: The History of the First 100 Years of the War Against God and the Constitution, 1776-1876, and Its Modern Impact.
For Christians and Jews who believe the scriptures, the Bible is clear on what is going on. And in fact, at its core, this is ultimately a battle with spiritual components that cannot be ignored. American churches can and must play a role in this battle.
But in the physical realm, there is only one national organization working to stop the Deep State behind the Deep State: The John Birch Society. As JBS founder Robert Welch said, the key to stopping what late Bohemian Grove member David Rockefeller described as his “secret cabal” that was “conspiring” to form a “one world” system is to expose the agenda and its purveyors, with God's help, while organizing to stop them and educating the electorate. Nothing else will do. There are no shortcuts or magic bullets. With the rise of the Internet, thanks to the foundation laid by JBS and others, that is happening at an unprecedented rate. But all God-fearing, patriotic Americans must get involved in the fight if freedom is to survive.
