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.

How can it be "sort of important" that there is a Nazi shrine inside?

I also would like to thank-you for the information you put out there. I had never heard of this group until now. God bless you.

I had heard about the "Skull & Bones Society" many years ago, from a relative, who once belonged to it or worked for them. I always wondered just how much of it was really true. I've learned over the years it is unfortuneately true. The wealth is unbelievable within this group and Bush is more wealthy than anyone can imagine. They have people "eliminated" for various reasons, even here within the U.S. They have the money and power to do about anything. I'll bet Obama is a member of this group. I think we are looking at having one government and one currency worldwide in the near future. Obama made a comment somewhere he was in favor of one currency.I was saddened by Obama's little talk late last night about how he wants everyone to be equal and feel so and he stated, "the most segregated hour in this country is Sunday morning" he talked about the shows on tv on Sunday morning make people feel seaparate from others. Will they take the Christian shows off TV? off the radio? Will Christmas soon be over in this country? This is the first article I've seen on this society and was rather surprised. Thank you for making people aware. You are great!

I believe that they should be watched and I know about the Nazi's and the fact that the symbol they use is an old cross. Most people don't know that. So I have to look at what is with the symbol to say if it is being use for evil (like an upside down cross) or what. Don't get me wrong, I don't trust them, but I know the history of that symbol. And with the wanting of one world govenment....well that is what Hitler wanted. And he was Jewish!!! It passes through the maternal side! Thanks Sylvia for all you do. You are one person I would love to meet! The life you have led and the history you have helped with.
