Spotlight on: The Bohemian Grove

Spotlight on: The Bohemian Grove

Alexandra Robbins has written an expose of the secretive Skull and Bones society. Another such private group that has aroused much curiosity over the years is the Bohemian Club. The male-only club has included some of the world's most rich and powerful men, who have been meeting every summer in the 2,700-acre Bohemian Grove in Northern California for over a century. In 1999, such notables as the former and current Pres. Bush's, Henry Kissinger, Colin Powell, Newt Gingrich and Dow Chemical Chairman Frank Popoff were all in attendance. President Herbert Hoover once called the Bohemian Club "the greatest men's party on Earth."

The gathering said to celebrate "the spirit of Bohemia," begins with a "Cremation of Care" ritual where an effigy is burned to symbolize the freedom from care. Members reportedly perform in a number of other plays and rituals and are served gourmet foods and wines. In the year 2000, documentary filmmaker Alex Jones infiltrated the club and recorded the events with a hidden digital camera.

"This is like something out of a Hollywood movie, where teenagers are out camping in the wilderness and come over a hill and witness some devil cult in black and red garb sacrificing some poor soul on the altar," Jones said of what he witnessed. His video "Dark Secrets: Inside Bohemian Grove," captures various rituals and ceremonies from some distance away. Towards the end of one ceremony, Jones shot the illumination of a "giant owl god," with a high priest exclaiming: "Oh, great owl of Bohemia, we thank thee for they adoration." It is hard to tell though from viewing the excerpted clips available through the Infowars website, if one is indeed watching dark occult ceremonies or just a sinister Blair Witch type effect achieved through blurry handheld camera shots.
