Bohemian Grove: a 1989 article covering BG, cited in UC Santa Cruz Sociology Dept.'s own Website!

Masters of the Universe Go to Camp: Inside the Bohemian Grove

by Philip Weiss (Not sure if it's pro-Dr. Ron Paul foreign policy progressive Philip of MondoWeiss, but most likely)

Spy Magazine, November 1989, pages 59-76

Monte Rio is a depressed Northern California town of 900 where the forest is so thick that some streetlights stay on all day long. Its only landmark is a kick-ass bar called the Pink Elephant, but a half-mile or so away from "the Pink," in the middle of a redwood grove, there is, strangely enough, a bank of 16 pay telephones. In midsummer the phones are often crowded. On July 21 of this year Henry Kissinger sat at one of them, chuffing loudly to someone -- Sunshine, her called her, and Sweetie -- about the pleasant distractions of his vacation in the forest.

"We had jazz concert," Kissinger said. "We had rope trick. This morning we went bird-watching."

Proudly Kissinger reeled off the names of some of his fellow campers: "Nick Brady and his brother is here." (Brady was the U.S. Treasury Secretary at the time.) "Tom Johnson is here." (Then the publisher of the Los Angeles Times, who had copies of his newspaper shipped up every day.) "That Indian is here, Bajpai." (He meant Shankar Bajpai, former ambassador to the U.S.) "Today they had a Russian."

Long but interesting read..

One of my friends here in Austin is the "other guy" who got into BG with AJ. He wrote a book about it. (actually some woman here helped him write it)

People try to write BG off as some sort of frat club, but it is much more than that.

All I know is that if I happened to look over my next door neighbor's fence and saw them dressed in robes with torches doing some sort of ritual under a 40ft stone owl, I would probably not let my kids sleep over there. I wouldn't want them running my country either.

That kind of concentration of power combined with secrecy is what needs to be exposed and disrupted at every opportunity.

I place equal if not greater importance on exposing these things as I do "taking over the GOP."

We can keep fiddling around here at the bottom, or start focusing on the top where the strings are being pulled. IMHO
