Everyone: Check out the additional information provided below to this critic, it follows my comments, including an article from the Sacramento Bee Newspaper followed by info re articles in Newsweek, Mother Jones, Macleans, and a story that would have been published in People, but was killed by Time Warner, Check out the urls yourself, then forward this to more people.You want to know how anyone can be so evil that they'd try to ban our access to vitamins and minerals within the therapeutic range? This explains a lot.

My 2 cents (2,000 cents adjusted for inflation). I went to the website, but couldn't make out who was in the pictures.
I'm still skeptical. How do I even know these are real pictures? You know what you can do with computers and photographs these days.
Besides, it just doesn't rign true to me that anything could be gained by such ceremonies even if they really did take place with the big names who are touted as being there. If these kinds of ceremonies had any power in them then it would be a different world, because lots of old civilizations had ceremonies similar to this. But the Aztecs still fell to the Conquistodors.
The message of modern science is that there isn't any real power in these stupid kinds of ceremonies.
So, sadly, I must inform you that I don not find this 'evidence' at all convincing.
On the other hand, there is no doubt that the rich and powerful are conniving to further enrich and empower themselves by what ever means they can. But Black Magic and ritual is just not efficacious. So I give this idea a poop rating of +10.
Alex Jones report dovetails with seperate eye witness accounts of two people who I have met and spoken with at length and who I have no reason to disbelieve: Sue Ford, and Cathy O'Brien, both of whom were used at the Grove as MKULTRA sex slaves, and who witnessed satanic ritual murders performed there when MKULTRA slaves who's programming was breaking down or who had reached age 30 and were therefor "used up" were burned alive at the Owl. As discussed previously, the CIA does have a scientific "reason" for burning people alive in satanic ceremonies. They force other MKULTRA slaves to watch their fellows be burned alive in order to lock in their programming via additional trauma and to reinforce the belief that if they talk, they too will be killed. They have discovered that when a person is subjected to trauma, they split off a compartment in their brain to emotionally deal with the trauma. They discovered that victims of incest and satanic ritual abuse make the best mind control subjects because they already have had their minds fragmented into numerous compartments, to which the person has no access- they've locked horrific information inside them and have thrown away the key. The CIA has been learning ways to induce the creation of numerous compartments within the brains of MKULTRA slaves, into which they cram classified information that they want to store in a safe place for later retrieval, and they have developed a system of triggers using code words and hand signals to bring forth information stored in these mind files. It is not a matter of debate that the CIA has done these things, it has come out via congressional hearings that were held ostensibly to bring a halt to illegal, grossly unconstitutional human experimentation of this sort, but it was never stopped. Congress has no control over the CIA, many of whose black projects are funded by the sale of heroin, cocaine and other illegal drugs.
When the CIA started MKULTRA, the Soviets were also doing the same thing, also using former Nazi scientists that came to them after WW2 just as they also came to the USA. via Project Paperclip (which has been heavily documented.) The first human experimentation in mind control occurred in Nazi Germany in the concentration camps and was conducted by Josef Mengele, nicknamed "the angel of death." Mengele engaged in eugenics research, often on twins. It was considered a "matter of national security" that MKULTRA be started.... ostensibly to "keep up with the Russians" but what most people fail to grasp is that the Russian "Revolution" of 1917 was started on Wall Street, triggered by the Rothschild banking family as a ploy to get the Czar's gold, and to bring into being global conflict from which they have always profitted by controlling both sides. The same ruling elite that triggered WW1 and WW2 is currently pushing very hard to force us into a world government, and their long range goal is to force all of us "useless eaters" under mind control so we can be more easily controlled. MKULTRA is the prototype for that control. For more information on the Bohemian Grove, see the articles below:
When Dirk Mathison, San Francisco bureau chief for People magazine, infiltrated the exclusive Bohemian Grove retreat this summer, he got a view into the U.S. elite that very few reporters have glimpsed. Unfortunately, that elite includes the management of Time Warner, the owner of People, which prevented Mathison from telling his story.
Bohemian Grove, a secluded campground in California's Sonoma County, is the site of an annual two-week gathering of a highly select, all-male club, whose members have included every Republican president since Calvin Coolidge. Current participants include George Bush, Henry Kissinger, James Baker and David Rockefeller -- a virtual who's who of the most powerful men in business and government.
Few journalists have gotten into the Grove and been allowed to tell the tale (one exception is Philip Weiss, whose November 1989 Spy piece provides the most detailed inside account), and members maintain that the goings-on there are not newsworthy events, merely private fun. In fact, official business is conducted there: Policy speeches are regularly made by members and guests, and the club privately boasts that the Manhattan Project was conceived on its grounds.
Given the veil of secrecy that surrounds the Bohemian "encampment," a reporter needs to enter the grounds covertly in order to get a full portrait. Mathison entered the grounds three times July 1991, aided by activists from the Bohemian Grove Action Network.
He witnessed a speech -- "Smart Weapons" -- by former Navy Secretary John Lehman, who stated that the Pentagon estimates that 200,000 Iraqis were killed by the U.S. and its allies during the Gulf War. Other featured speakers included Defense Secretary Richard Cheney on "Major Defense Problems of the 21st Century", former Health, Education and Welfare Secretary Joseph Califano on "America's Health Revolution -- Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Pays", and former Attorney General Elliott Richardson on "Defining the New World Order".
Mathison's entree into the secret world of the Grove was cut short on July 20, however, when he was recognized by two of the participants in the festivities --executives from Time Warner, People's publisher. More loyal to the Grove than to journalistic endeavor, they had the reporter removed from the premises (San Francisco Weekly, 8/7/91).
Mathison already had plenty of material, however, and turned in an article to his editors, which was scheduled to appear in the Aug. 5, 1991 issue. They were pleased with the piece, according to Mathison: "They liked it enough to expand it a bit," he told Extra!.
But then the story was suddenly killed. Landon Jones, managing editor of People, told Extra! that the decision had nothing to do with the Time Warner executives. "It was cut partially because he hadn't been there long enough to get a complete story. Secondly, we felt very uncertain about reporting what we did have, because, and this is my fault and I take responsibility for this, I simply didn't realize it was technically trespassing."
For his part, Mathison said he did not know why the story was killed, and implied it would be nearly impossible to find the real reason. "It's easier to penetrate the Bohemian Grove than the Time-Life Building," he told Extra!.
But the story raises questions about the ability of a media entity to report critically on an elite when its executives are enthusiastic members of that elite. Indeed, the Time organization was noted for sending a corporate plane to the Bohemian gathering every year, according to long-time Grove-watcher Kerry Richardson.
Time Warner is not the only media corporation with Bohemian connections. The list of Fourth Estate bigwigs who have been members or guests is extensive: Franklin Murphy, the former CEO of the Times Mirror corporation; William Randolph Hearst, Jr.; Jack Howard and Charles Scripps of the Scripps-Howard newspaper chain; Tom Johnson, president of CNN and former publisher of the Los Angeles Times.
When Associated Press president Louis Boccardi spoke at one of the Grove's "Lakeside Talks" about kidnapped reporter Terry Anderson (Spy, 11/89), he referred to his audience as men of "power and rank" and "gave them more details than he said he was willing to give his readers."
Walter Cronkite, now on the CBS board, hangs out at the same lodge at Bohemian Grove as George Bush and the former chairs of Procter & Gamble and Bank of America; Cronkite's voice has served as the voice of the Owl of Bohemia, a fixture in the club's mock-druidic rituals.
The media figures attending the retreat all agree not to report on what goes on inside. The prohibition seems to apply to reporters who are not guests or members as well: In 1982, NPR got a recording of Henry Kissinger's speech at the Grove -- but declined to air it (Spy, 11/89). Also in 1982, a Time reporter went undercover as a waiter in Bohemian Grove; like Mathison's People article, his story was killed.

BOHEMIAN GROVE -- LAKESIDE TALKS & OTHER MISCHIEF 7/16 TO 8/1/1999
By Mary Moore
August 5, 1999
This years encampment began with strong rumors that George Bush Sr. along with sons George Jr., candidate for president of the United States and current governor of Texas and Jeb, current governor of Florida were coming at some time during the two week festivities. This rumor came from several anonymous callers as well as my usual sources and was backed up by PRESS DEMOCRAT reporter Bleys Rose using his own sources. When the P.D. finally did a very small article on the gathering. Rose prefaced his words with "reports abound" before he informed his readers of the impending visit of the Bushes, Sr. & Jr.. This turned out to be a wise move on his part.
Suzanne Bohan from the SACRAMENTO BEE did not use such precautionary language, reporting it as fact which promptly got her in trouble with the Bush Jr. campaign. Almost immediately after her August 2 story appeared in the Metro section of the BEE she received a call from a campaign manager denying his presence at this years gathering and demanding a retraction. She then contacted us as well as the P.D. looking for an eye witness to a Bush - any Bush-sighting. This is when all the sources started back peddling and in the end no one would come foreword to confirm the rumor. The BEE did promise that they would not use names, but the fear of workers losing their job may have been the reason OR the rumor could have been untrue from the start OR the Bushes may have heard the talk and decided not to come.
I also got a couple of calls from Bob Mulholland of the state Democratic Party who was interested in whether Bush Jr. was there. Apparently Bush had turned down an offer from LA RAZA of Texas to speak at their convention telling them that he was going to be on retreat in Maine (during the exact time of the Bohemian Grove gathering!!) and when they heard he was reported to be coming to the Grove at that time they wanted an explanation. We'll probably never know for sure what happened but to me it is very strange indeed that suddenly a trip to the Grove is something that a presidential candidate needs to dodge and disclaim. This is the place after all that Reagan and Nixon had their famous meeting to decide who would run for president first. Is this progress or much ado about nothing???
Here at the BOHEMIAN GROVE ACTION NETWORK we have heard many rumors over the years. The only ones we can confirm are the ones that are printed in their actual schedule of the Lakeside Talks which we still get smuggled out every year. That doesn't mean that the rumors aren't true--but confirming them is very difficult without eye witnesses willing to take a risk. Certainly the management at the Grove has learned no to advertise presidents or presidential candidates who speak up there knowing that we monitor all printed lakeside talks. Sitting presidents usually don't come but candidates have not hesitated before this.
And now for the list we CAN confirm since it comes right out of their own booklet - MIDSUMMER ENCAMPMENT 1999-PROGRAM OF EVENTS.

Bohemian Grove Fact Sheet http://www.sonomacountyfreepress.org/bohos/bohofact.html
What is the Bohemian Grove?
The Bohemian Grove is a 2700 acre redwood forest, located in Monte Rio, CA. It contains accommodation for 2000 people to "camp" in luxury. It is owned by the Bohemian Club.
What is the Bohemian Club?
The Bohemian Club is a private. all male club, which is headquartered in the Bohemian building in San Francisco. It was formed in 1872 by men who sought shelter from the frontier culture (or lack of culture).
Who are the present members?
The Club has evolved into an association of rich and powerful men, mostly of this country (there are similar organizations in other countries). Some artists are allowed to join (often at reduced rates), because of their social status and entertainment value. The membership list has included every Republican U.S. president (as well as some Democrats) since 1923, many cabinet officials, and director; & CEO's of large corporations, including major financial institutions.
What industries are represented among the members?
Major military contractors, oil companies, banks (including the Federal Reserve), utilities (including nuclear power), and national media (broadcast and print) have high-ranking officials as club members or guests. Many members are, or have been, on the board of directors of several of these corporations. You should note that most of the above industries depend heavily on a relationship with government for their profitability.
The members stay in different camps at the Grove, which have varying status levels. Members & frequent guests of the most prestigious camp (Mandalay) include: Henry Kissinger, George Shultz, S. D. Bechtel, Jr., Thomas Watson Jr. (IBM), Phillip Hawley (B of A), William Casey (CIA). and Ralph Bailey (Dupont). George Bush resides in a less prestigious camp (Hillbillies) with A. W. Clausen (World Bank), Walter Cronkite, and William F. Buckley.
What activities take place at the grove?
The grove is the site of a two week retreat every July (as well as other smaller get-togethers throughout the year). At these retreats, the members commune with nature in a truly original way. They drink heavily from morning through the night, bask in their freedom to urinate on the redwoods, and perform pagan rituals (including the "Cremation of Care", in which the members wearing red-hooded robes, cremate a coffin effigy of "Dull Care" at the base of a 40 foot owl altar). Some (20%) engage in homosexual activity (but few of them support gay rights or AIDS research). They watch (and participate in) plays and comedy shows in which women are portrayed by male actors. Although women are not allowed in the Grove, members often leave at night to enjoy the company of the many prostitutes who come from around the world for this event. Is any of this hard to believe? Employees of the Grove have said that no verbal description can accurately portray the bizarre behavior of the Grove's inhabitants.
Besides this type of merriment. the annual gathering serves as an informational clearing house for the elite. The most powerful men in the country do their "networking" here, despite the Grove's motto "weaving spiders come not here" (don't do business in the Grove). At these gatherings men representing the government, military-industrial, and financial sectors meet and make major policy decisions. The Manhattan project, which produced the first atomic bombs, was conceived at the Grove in 1942. Other decisions made at the Grove include who our presidential candidates will be. There are speeches, known as "Lakeside Talks", wherein high-ranking officials disseminate information which is not available to the public-at-large.
What are the topics of discussion at the Lakeside Talks?
The 1991 talks included:
HEW Secretary, Carter Administration
"Americas Health Care: Revolution: Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Pays"
Former German Prime Minister
"The Enormous Problems of the 21st Century"
Nixon & Reagan Administrations
"Defining a New World Order"
Secretary of the Navy, Reagan Administration
Present Secretary of Defense
"Major Defense Problems of the 21st Century"
What's not right about this?
When powerful people work together, they become even more powerful. The Grove membership is wealthy, and becoming more so, while the middle class is steadily becoming poorer. This close-knit group determines whether prices rise or fall (by their control of the banking system, money supply, and markets), and they make money whichever way markets fluctuate. They determine what our rights are and which laws have effect, by appointing judges. They decide who our highest officials shall be by consensus among themselves, and then selling candidates to us via the media which they own. Important issues and facts are omitted from discussion in the press, or slanted to suit their goals, but they are discussed frankly at the Grove. Is there true democracy when so much power is concentrated in so few hands? Is there any real difference between the public and private sectors when cabinet members come from the boardrooms of large corporations? Is the spending of billions on weapons, which are by consensus no longer needed, really the will of the people? Or is it the will of General Electric, General Dynamics, and the other weapons contractors represented at the Grove?
What can I do to make a difference?
Educate yourself about the Grove and it's inhabitants, and the true nature of the power structure in the world. Then educate your friends. Since most major newspapers and broadcast stations are owned by "insiders", be wary of everything you hear in the press. If you can, participate in protest activities during the July retreat.
