Kerry was on Meet the Press the other night and they actually asked him about how he and Bush were both members of the 'secret' Skull & Bones.
All Kerry said in response was (jokingly) "Well it's not really that secret then is it?"
So what do we have here? Regardless of who wins, the presidency is in the hands of a Skull and Bones graduate... keep in mind that Skull and Bones is nothing more than a "gateway society" for the Cabal to run the entire presidential show from the back room....
I don't like it that Kerry was a member of the Skull and Bones, that he approved the criminal attack of U.S. forces on Panama, the war on Afghanistan, and the war on Iraq. I especially wish he had seen through the invasions of Panama and Iraq and come out against them, but he didn't.
They may not have had an explicit point system at Yale in 1964, but Bush clearly got in because of affirmative action. Affirmative action for the son and grandson of alumni. Affirmative action for a member of a politically influential family. Affirmative action for a boy from a fancy prep school. These forms of affirmative action still go on.
Under George W. Bush, this nation has lost its way. Not only are we less secure at home and abroad, we have squandered our role as the inspiration and guiding light for other peoples. I seek to restore America’s rightful place in the world and its moral leadership in world affairs.
He received his B.A. from Yale University in 1971
Significantly, the Ivy League aura that shields the Yale succession from scrutiny is fading. In Secrets of the Tomb, a recent history of Skull and Bones, Yale grad Alexandra Robbins, SY '98, shows how four generations of Bonesmen created the Bush dynasty that comprises two thirds of Yale's presidential troika. Looking ahead to 2004, Robbins describes a possible Bush/Kerry contest as "the first Bones versus Bones presidential race."
In this pairing, Yale comes off more as a club for oligarchs than a laboratory for leaders. Three more Yale-trained presidential hopefuls bolster this impression: Vermont Governor Howard Dean, PC '71, and Senators Joe Lieberman, MC '64, LAW '67, and Hillary Clinton, LAW '67.
Oligarchy: Government by a few, especially by a small faction of persons or families.
