The Truth About The Skull And Bones Society
The Skull and Bones Society by Sylvia Browne Psychic Sylvia Browne, World-renowned Psychic Sylvia Browne pictures

by Sylvia Browne

This famous organization has been designated as “America’s secret establishment” by author Antony Sutton, but it’s also been known as “the Brotherhood of Death,” “the Order,” or just plain “Bones.”

For more than 150 years, Skull and Bones has been active at Yale University. Also called “Chapter 322,” some claim that it’s an offshoot of a secret German university society. This group allegedly had a fascist and communist bent, with a Hegelian philosophy of “service to the state.” Many conspiracy theorists also believe that it was the infamous “Thule Society” (whose members went on to form the Nazi Party) and has ties with the Illuminati.

Apparently, the American branch of this group was founded in 1832 at Yale University by class valedictorian William Russell and his schoolmate Alphonso Taft. William was the cousin of Samuel Russell, who made his fortune by smuggling opium to China, and he supposedly struck up a great friendship with a leader of a clandestine German university society during the two years he spent studying in Germany. He evidently became so enthralled that he got permission to form a branch in America.

William Russell later went on to become a state legislator in Connecticut and a military general. His partner, Alphonso Taft, was later appointed the United States’ attorney general, secretary of war, and ambassador to both Austria-Hungary and Russia. Alphonso was also the father of William Howard Taft, who ultimately became the only man to be both chief justice of the Supreme Court and President of the United States.

Now from what I’ve been able to gather from my research, Yale’s chapter is the only one in America, although some say there’s also one at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond. Its members are known as “Bonesmen,” “Knights of Eulogia,” and “Boodle Boys,” nicknames that are typical of college fraternal organizations, but this group seems to go beyond your average fraternity.

From a Tap to a President?

The identity of those who have been in Skull and Bones is assumed to be secret, but the group actually published membership lists (which were held in the Yale library) until 1970. Only after that time was membership kept secret. However, several leaks have occurred over the  years – one of which was the result of a break-in with another coming from a disgruntled member who gave a list of fellow Bonesmen to Antony Sutton in the mid-1980’s. The membership reads like a who’s who of East Coast society, with members from old, wealthy, and powerful families that are steeped in politics, banking, commerce, industry, and the like. Three Presidents of the United States (the aforementioned Taft, along with George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush) were Bonesmen, for instance; and the younger President Bush supposedly appointed 11 of his old “frat brothers” to his administration in his first term.

The way the initiation process works is that certain juniors at Yale are “tapped” (literally, on the body or shoulders) near the end of the school year to join the seniors-only society, resulting in about 15 new members being chosen. Although potential candidates can refuse membership, it’s considered a great honor to be tapped.

Only males were eligible until 1992; through a secret referendum of existing members (which was purportedly quite heated), the group is now said to admit women. To be considered a candidate, it helps if you’re from a Bones family; have access to wealth and power, and are energetic, active, political, and resourceful. To even be admitted to Yale in the first place requires academic prowess or familial influence, so the order can obviously pick from some of America’s best.

Being a seniors-only type of association, one can basically assume that the goals of Skull and Bones probably have more to do with an agenda in the outside world than they do with Yale or “brotherhood.” To that end, conspiracy theorists often have a field day with this group, tying it in with numerous other covert political organizations such as the Trilateral Commission, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderberg Group, and the Illuminati.

Skill and Bones owns two pieces of property: their building on the Yale campus, called “the Tomb,” which is actually quite large; and Deer Island, a private haven on the St. Lawrence River. Naturally, both locations are for the exclusive use of the order. The Tomb has no exterior windows and its walls are made of concrete, even though it reportedly has many rooms (including several bedrooms). According to some who have been insider, there’s a room devoted to William H. Taft and his Presidency that’s almost like a shrine. And an eyewitness account of the inside of the Tomb by one of a group of Yale females invited for a tour by a “dissident” member claimed that there’s another room that apparently devoted to the Nazi regime in Germany, including quite a bit of “memorabilia.” The witness is reported to have said the following:

There were tons of rooms, a whole chain of them. They (sic) were a couple of bedrooms and there was this monumental dining room with different rolls of Skull and Bones songs suspended from the ceiling. And there was a President Taft memorabilia room filled with flyers, posters, buttons – the whole room was like a Miss Havisham’s shrine. And a big living room with a beautiful rug; and this big, huge, expensive-looking ivory carving in the hallway. The whole thing was on a very medieval scale. The most shocking thing – and I say this because I do think it’s sort of important – I mean, President Bush does belong to Skull and Bones, everyone knows that – there is, like a little Nazi shrine inside. One room on the second floor has a bunch of swastikas, kind of an SS-macho-Nazi iconography. Somebody should ask President Bush about the swastikas in there. I mean, I don’t think he’ll say they’re no there. I think he’ll say, “Oh, it wasn’t a big deal, it was just a little room.” Which I don’t think is true and which I wouldn’t find terribly reassuring anyway. But I don’t think he’d deny it altogether, because it’s true. I mean, I think the Nazi stuff was no more serious than all the bones that were around, but I still find it a little disconcerting.

Initiates to the order reportedly have to lie in a coffin naked and tell their sexual history to the other candidates – whether this is harmless induction or for blackmail purposes, no one really knows. Initiates are also given names that they carry with them for the rest of their lives. For example, the younger President Bush’s name is “Temporary” (make of that what you will).

In addition to president, there have been at least 28 U.S. Senators or Congressmen who belonged to the order, including James Buckley, Prescott Bush, John Chaffee, Thomas Ashley, Jonathan Bingham, David Boren, Thruston Morton, Robert Taft and John Kerry. Several other Bonesmen served as cabinet members in various administrations (such as William A. Harriman), and most of us know about George H.W. Bush’s involvement with the CIA.

Sylvia Browne is without question, "America's #1 Psychic," an internationally known psychic and medium.

Disturbing, but we need to know. I wonder if this is also called The Federalist Society that Bush and Cheney are in. I heard that members themselves don't know who else is a member except for the "tapper." I also heard that they select all our Presidents.

Thanks for giving the overview of Skull and Bones...would like to have more insight into this secret society and what effects it has on our society, through the government, our rights, and businesses. I noticed you mentioned a Congressman, Prescott Bush...that is the father of George H.W. Bush and grandfather of George W. Bush. I remember seeing some show either on the History channel or PBS where they showed that Prescott Bush was associated with The Nazis through bank can check through Google searches and there are several reputable sources that back this up and some assertions that our current state is due to the mechanizations of the Bush family and allies.

If you think you found this interesting you should read Sylvia's book "Secret Societies." We as people are being used as puppets to play out the coming of the New World Order. The CFR "The Council for Foreign Relations" is just that, the wealthy and elite for the pursuant of a New World Order. Members such as Bill Clinton, Colon Powel, Condoleezza Rice, Paul Wolfowitz, John Kerry, H. Bush, Jimmy Carter, John Bolton(former Ambassador to the UN)...these are just a few of past and present members of government, education, military, industry, banking, media, etc. And, many of those and more are also members of the Skull and Bones! Oh, and Christine, don't think for a minute that Obama's hands are clean...He is most likely the biggest string puller on the platform that the societies have behind their curtain. Only time will tell.

We used to have a Skull and Bones restaurant here in Richmond, VA many years ago; but I don't think it is called that anymore; don't really know if it is still there at all, or if it is, don't know whether it is a restaurant at the present time. Very nice place and very reasonable, for the VCU people and for the students, and the hospital and school people, and also for the general publie...very nice people who ran it. So, there is probably a society here that we don't know about. Some prominent people in our area used to be the owners; they no longer are anymore I don't believe. How interesting! Keep us informed Syliva!

Thank you, Sylvia for informing us. I'm pleased to see that the focus is off of the negative astrological charts of our newly elected officials. By the way, could an article be written about keeping thoughts (and even blogs/comments) positive about our newly elected administration? I think it is in our best interest to work with our government (and we of course CAN and have a civic responsibility to work with our local and state elected officials as well) for the betterment of the United States citizens. I think it is in the best interest to now start working to let our officials know what is important to us and to keep our focus on improving our life here and keeping the administration honest and productive, regardless of our political affiliation vs. degrading, worrying, hating, etc. The results are in, like them or not, and now we need to move on. We also need to realize that the government needs to work for what the majority wants/needs, not just individuals. After the negatively focused astrological charts of the Democratic candidates over the past few days (after glowing astrological charts for their Republican opponents the days before), I am pleased to see you have brought light to there being some not-so-favorable association with the current administration to such organizations as the one you mention today. Please, Sylvia, encourage us all to be positive and work as a united nation to heal and progress during the coming months and years. Thank you.

Let's be clear, Barack Obama IS NOT a member of the Skull & Bones Society. Period. Only those who attend YALE University are eligible for membership. Barack Obama attended Harvard. Commentator Cheryl should reread the above article and educate herself on the issues, facts and people she speaks about rather than dabble in slander and speculation. Frankly, most people have tired of those who peddle misinformation and random bits of disinformation they hear on FOX news or find while surfing the "internets."
