I'm just curious to know if someone has insightful information/research on the Bohemian Grove summer retreats? Apparently, American and the International elite gather annually in San Francisco, Sonoma County for an all-male 99%-white private party. The retreat will span three weekends in July which features outdoor events, lectures, entertainment, rituals, plays, theater etc.

It has been called "the greatest men's party on earth"

Some strange interpretations of the summer gathering involve theatrical torturing and the raping of women, live human sacrifices, bizarre luciferian ceremonies etc. Not only that, but some believe unforeseen conflicts between guests that happen during the retreat will later result in wars between nations, international sanctions etc.

Could the Bohemian Grove retreat be a social world gathering of illuminati's?

I found this to be most enlightening...

Especially the quote from Pres. Nixon concerning the Bohemian Club

"The Bohemian Grove -- which I attend, from time to time -- it is the most faggy goddamned thing you could ever imagine, with that San Francisco crowd. I can't shake hands with anybody from San Francisco."

- President Richard M. Nixon

I found that very "Nixonesque"

BC (Bohemian Club.. Known as BC to it's brothers) was founded in 1872 by five media tycoons, a shakespearean actor, a vitner and a local merchant.

Bohemian Grove as your know it, is a club owned retreat located in Monte Rio, California which was purchased and annually began it's events in late 1879.

The 2 week long retreat comprises mainly of things you would expect from the Elitists who attend the event; Orchestra's, Delicious Dinners, Lectures etc. The event has semi-masonic themes that center around a 40-foot stone owl (which is their logo, known as Great Owl of Bohemia) and everyone is known to each other as Boho's, or Grovers.. The Lakeside Talks (Russian River) that take place comprise of many different topics and it has been rumoured that the Manhatten Project first took shape at a Grove Meeting many years ago.

One Richard McCaslin broke into the event in 2002 in protest of the meeting calling himself a Phantom Patriot, he was fully armed and wore a blue Paramilitary Uniform, a rubber red skeleton mask and body armor. He was prepared to expose the supposed ritualitic child abuse and human sacrifices he had heard were rumoured to have happened at the event, or die trying. During his search for the location during the night he got lost in the woods and when he woke in the morning managed to find the Stone Owl, he left a verse from Leviticus on the base, then setting the Group's mess hall on fire. After a brief police stand off he was arrested, heavily charged and had a prison psychologist assigned to him.

To this date it is known there have been over 2,700 Grovers. Below included is a brief listing of some of the more known members:

George HW Bush
Dick Cheney
Dwight D. Eisenhower
Malcolm Forbes
Gerald Ford
Newt Gingrich
Alan Greenspan
Alexander Haig

Art Linkletter
William Randolph Hearst, Jr.
Charles Scripps, of the Scripps-Howard newspaper chain
Jack Howard, also of Scripps-Howard
David M. Kennedy, history professor from Stanford Univeristy.
Nathan Myhrvold, Former Chief Technology Officer, Microsoft.
Seth Shustak, astronomer, SETI Institute.

ca. 1873 Bohemian Club founded

ca. 1879 First meeting at Bohemian Grove 13 May 1971 President Richard M. Nixon: "The Bohemian Grove -- which I attend, from time to time -- it is the most faggy goddamned thing you could ever imagine, with that San Francisco crowd. I can't shake hands with anybody from San Francisco."
11 Jun 1993 The Washington Times reports: "Presidential counsellor David Gergen resigned yesterday from the all-male Bohemian Club, three days after saying he would not run around naked at its annual Bohemian Grove encampment and insisting he would not quit. White House spokeswoman Dee Dee Myers announced the resignation along with Mr. Gergen's departure from 17 other interest groups, charities and public boards ranging from the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderberg Group and Council on Foreign Relations."

15 Jul 2000 Alex Jones poses as a Bohemian club member and clandestinely videotapes Grove rituals.

Jan 2002 Inspired by Alex Jones's radio show, Richard McCaslin arms himself and makes his way into the Grove, but he is detained by Sonoma County police. In the pretrial, Jones offers to let McCaslin use his hidden camera footage as evidence.

I have heard a rumor about a gay pornstar being invited to one of the meetings. Don't know if that is true. But, I found these pictures.

Sorry GLeamer but you really haven't got a clue. You cannot just keep quoting mason's for everything.

You've tried everything now I reckon, even nuclear physics and you are just ruining other peoples threads with your idiocities.

Unless you have something of substance to contribute why bother.

As for BC the recommended site is, which is detailed on one of the pictures of above. The curator is supposedly the only person outside the BC group to infiltrate the grove.

There have been some real concerns for those who follow this group and the NWO scenario of recent times, after it was stated that the beginning of the distruction of the US would be the installation of a non-us president (I believe their was a thread on ATS regarding this particular scenario), any way the concerns were raised when BC apparently invited Arnie to a gathering as a guest speaker.

I would recommend viewing the infowars site as an ideal starting point.

I haven't seen any evidence to show that this group is "evil" or whatnot. It just looks like a big Frat party to me. There isn't evil in everything you know, people.

I saw the Alex Jones video on this. He snuck into the resort had a video recorder in his pocket (or something like that). He was doing a voice over during the whole video. What I saw was this, it looked like a bunch a guys hanging out and playing cards. It was nothing but a social club. Alex Jones added things on his voice over that made it look like something sinister was going on. Also every time he would turn the camera off he would say right when the camera went off we where approved my security. Then he video taped their ceremony which looked like a frat ceremony. But on his voice over Alex says stuff like I had experts watch this and at that time they think there was a human sacrifice even when you dont see a thing. The Bohemian Club looks nothing more than a good old boy club.

Cool video i guess.It didnt really show anything or anyone of any importance .His claims of secret service agents and security are probly fake.If there were secret service in there he would of been kicked out.I bet anyone of us could practicly walk into that place.

Sure some of the worlds elite may have a get together there once a year but so what?They are filthy rich and probly enjoy the entrtainment that goes on there.The whole ritual thing could just be for entertainment,if it really was some secretive thing there wouldnt be as many people there as there was,what were there atleast 200 people in that audience?They pass out brouchures of the event also,lol if it were this totally secretive thing they wouldnt be handing out brouchures.

Just a place for rich people to party....move on folk's.

I saw the video also but didn't learn anything new from it- still cool though.

I am so into Alex Jones now. I listen to the podcast everyday if possible (it's 3 hrs long)

Alex Jones created a follow-up film to the original Grove break-in. The story becomes stranger still as, apprantly, wicca and other earth-wind-fire-water types conduct their own mystical ceremonies outside of the private camp.

Some activities in all walks of life can be somewhat easily dismissed on a superficial level. And BG could be a big harmless costume party and drum circle of various jerks.

However, the more you read and see from differing sources, the more there are questions raised. Watch Jones question Gergen again about the Grove. I wonder why a grown man would have a public hissy-fit over an innocent getaway.

Personally I think the most effective leaders are in-touch with their constituents and if high-profile members of BG catch flack from US citizens then GOOD. Let them know that we're paying attention and that going to the Funhouse of Hoot Hoot isn't carte blanche for dodging even more questions from the people that indirectly got them their with votes or dollars. If the common people no longer enjoy privacy then why should the decadent and spoiled rotten?
