Skull and Bones in the White House: Behind Closed Doors

Written by Gary North on February 17, 2012

Skull and Bones is a secret society at Yale University. Every year since 1833, 15 people (men only prior to 1991) have been “tapped” at the end of their junior year to join the society. Its most famous members have been President William Howard Taft (who also became Chief Justice), Senator Robert A. Taft (“Mr. Republican”), Henry Luce (Time Magazine), George H. W. Bush, George W. Bush, John Kerry, and William F. Buckley. Either way, the 2004 Presidential election would have resulted in a Bonesman as President. Yet neither of them was allowed to discuss his membership. Lifetime silence is part of their vows.

There was a 1970 TV movie based on Bones, Brotherhood of the Bell. But its name was never mentioned.

The public was unaware of Bones until Esquire Magazine ran a story on it in September 1977. That is a long time after 1833.

Conservative author Antony Sutton wrote a series of short books on Bones in the mid-1980s. Someone had provided him with names of members. There is a 30-minute video interview of his findings.

A recent story indicates that President Obama’s economic advisor Austin Goolsbee, a Bones member, brought 8 undergraduate members to a closed meeting.

Late one afternoon on March 4, 2011, eight college students arrived at the White House to meet with President Obama’s top economic adviser, Austan Goolsbee. The meeting was never publicized, and the agenda items being discussed remain unknown.

But there was one thread that connected everyone present that day: they were all members of Yale’s storied, elite secret society, Skull and Bones.

We also read this:

The secrecy has fueled rumors and conspiracy theories about the group, with pieces of its various rituals leaking into public view over the course of its near two-century history. In 2001, for example, journalist Ron Rosenbaum spied on the group’s initiation ceremony, and published his findings in the New York Observer:

The writer of this story was unaware that Ron Rosebbaum was the author of the original Esquire story.

I doubt that much of importance was discussed. The meeting offered a taste of power to a select group of the members. It reminded them of what lies ahead for them if they abide by the rules.

There are two other Yale secret societies, Wolf’s Head and Scroll and Key.

The model is older: Harvard’s Porcellian Club. Teddy Roosevelt was a member. His cousin Franklin did not get in, a fact that bothered him for the rest of his life.

The existence of these entry points into the American Establishment is rarely discussed in the media. Prior to 1977, they were never discussed.

Anti-conspiracy theorists dismiss all such talk as the work of obsessed people. But this is exactly what a conspiracy would want the talking heads to say.

Rosenbaum admitted this much in 1977.

What follows is an account of my search for the meaning behind the mysterious Bones rituals.  Only information that might be too easily traced to its source has been left out, because certain sources expressed fear of reprisals against themselves.  Yes, reprisals.  One of them even insisted, with what seemed like deadly seriousness, that reprisals would be taken against me.

“What bank do you have your checking account at?” this party asked me in the middle of a discussion of the Mithraic aspects of  the Bones ritual.  I named the bank, “Aha,” said the party.  “There are three Bonesmen on the board.  You’ll never have a line of credit again.  They’ll tap your phone.  They’ll…”

Before I could say, “A line of what?” the source continued:   “The  alumni still care.  Don’t laugh.  They don’t like people tampering  and prying.  The power of Bones is incredible.  They’ve got their hands on every level of power in the country.  You’ll see – it’s like trying to look into the Mafia.  Remember, they’re a secret society, too.”

Here is how CBS News handled Bones in 2003, when the Bush-Kerry Connection became public.

When 60 Minutes first reported on Skull & Bones last October, conspiracy theorists, who see Skull and Bones behind just about everything that goes wrong, and even right, in the world, were relishing the unthinkable – the possibility of two Bonesman fighting it out for the presidency.

Over the years, Bones has included presidents, cabinet officers, spies, Supreme Court justices, captains of industry, and often their sons and lately their daughters, a social and political network like no other.

And to a man and women, they’d responded to questions with utter silence until an enterprising Yale graduate, Alexandra Robbins, managed to penetrate the wall of silence in her book, “Secrets of the Tomb,” reports CBS News Correspondent Morley Safer.


“I spoke with about 100 members of Skull and Bones and they were members who were tired of the secrecy, and that’s why they were willing to talk to me,” says Robbins. “But probably twice that number hung up on me, harassed me, or threatened me.”

Be aware of how the Establishment works.

    Skull and Bones had a rule that if those words were spoken any members present had to leave the room. The Princeton Triangle Club, as one of their set pieces for many years, would say the words, whereupon a “bum in rags” would reluctantly rise from his seat in the theater and walk out.

  3. George Bush, Queen Elizabeth, and Vladimir Putin all die and go to hell. While there, they spy a red phone and ask what the phone is for. The devil tells them it is for calling back to Earth.

    Putin asks to call Russia and talks for 5 minutes. When he is finished the devil informs him that the cost is a million dollars, so Putin writes him a check.

    Next Queen Elizabeth calls England and talks for 30 minutes. When she is finished the devil informs her that the cost is 6 million dollars, so she writes him a check.

    Finally George Bush gets his turn and talks for 4 hours. When he is finished the devil informs him that the cost is $5.00.

    When Putin hears this he goes ballistic and asks the devil why Bush got to call the USA so cheaply.

    The devil smiles and replies, "Since Obama took over, the country has gone to hell, so it's a local call."

    You'll really need it if a Republicon wins.

  10. At first I thought this was a bad joke but I guess that will be the trademark of this administration. What a wonderful legacy — class warfare and racism. Click on the link and be amazed.

    Can you imagine any white candidate making such a blatant play of the race card? He or she would be tarred and feathered, boiled in oil and driven out of town.

    This should make your blood boil.

  14. FIGHTING BACK AGAINST THE NWO and THE BANALITY OF EVIL. The Little Known Flip Side of the Milgram Experiment. Refuse To Comply. Learn more, http://thedailybell.com/3836/Joel-F-Wade-The-Bana…. You are probably familiar with Stanley Milgram's Obedience to Authority experiments. Subjects were asked to administer ascending quantities of electrical shock to people each time they answered a question incorrectly. Two thirds of participants administered the full range of shock, simply because the person in authority, a man with a white coat, would say, "The experiment requires that you continue." This is very scary, of course, but there's more to the story. In a little known but vitally important detail in these experiments, those who witnessed another person refuse to comply with the authority were dramatically more likely to refuse to comply themselves. In this case only 10% obeyed the orders of the authority. The power of a positive example represents a huge potential for good. One representative with that kind of integrity can make a world of difference, the potential to defy the status quo of the Progressive Agenda. Now comes the hard work of dismantling the EVIL Administrative State that has been built in defiance of our founding principles.
