Skull and Bones

And Bones Fraternity

Skull and Bones is an undergraduate senior or secret society at Yale University, in New Haven, Connecticut. It was founded in 1832 by William Huntington Russell and Alphonso Taft, two students who were not admitted into Phi Beta Kappa. The society’s alumni organization, which owns the society’s real property and oversees the organization, is the Russell Trust Association, named for William Huntington Russell, who co-founded Skull and Bones with classmate Alphonso Taft. The Russell Trust was founded by Russell and Daniel Coit Gilman, member of Skull and Bones and later president of the University of California. The society is known informally as “Bones”, and members are known as “Bonesmen”. The first Skull and Bones class, or “cohort”, was in 1833.

Skull and Bones is known by many names, including The Order of Death, The Order, The Eulogian Club, and Lodge 322. Skull and Bones is the only secret society known to have a summer home and its own private island. This private island, one of the Thousand Islands lying in gray territorial area between the United States and Canada, along the St. Lawrence river was given to the Order by one of its early mysterious benefactor families who was associated with the secret society. Members of the society swear an oath of secrecy about the group and its strange rituals, which includes devotion to the number “322″ and initiation rites that include confessing sexual secrets and kissing a skull.

Skull and Bones selects 15 new members each spring in what is known as “Tap Day” at Yale University. They “tap” students which they view will become future leaders in government, law, finance and other influential sectors in American society. As a result, at any given time there are approximately 600 hundred members within the organization. These are a small elite group of individuals carefully chosen to lead American society with the backing of the organization. Many of those chosen come from very wealthy and influential American families. Some notable alumni of the Skull and Bones Society or “Bonesmen” as they are referred to are, President William Howard Taft, Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart “mother of the Central Intelligence Agency” and H J Heinz II (heir to the H J Heinz Company). Also notable was Senator Prescott Bush – the father of George H.W. Bush, and the grandfather of George W. Bush. Some current notable living members are Steve Schwarzman – chairman of the Blackstone Group, and Austan Goolsbee – Barack Obama’s chief economic advisor whom was initiated into the club in 1991.

The windowless Egyptian-style building called “The Tomb”. Accounts describe the interior as allegedly having a kitschy-goth vibe with plenty of skulls, skeletons and other spooky decor, plus all sorts of special rooms and chambers.

What worries people most about the Bonesmen is the suspicion that the organization may have a neo-Nazi tendency or that it may be animated by anti-Semitic sentiments. According to various reports about the activities of the Bonesmen throughout the years, it appears that many prominent members, in particular those linked to the Union Bank in New York and its sister bank in Holland at the beginning of WWII, were financing Hitler throughout the war and as late as 1945. Italians and Germans alike have a long history of secret associations meddling in the internal affairs of their countries.

One Yale Graduate – Alexandra Robbins – managed to penetrate the society’s wall of silence and wrote a book about about it entitled, “Secrets of the Tomb”. In the book, Robbins says the following regarding the society’s rituals of new initiates:

“There is a devil, a Don Quixote, and a pope who has one foot sheathed in a white monogrammed slipper resting on a stone skull. The initiates are led into the room one at a time. And once the initiate is inside, the Bonesmen shriek at him. Finally, the Bonesman is shoved to his knees in front of Don Quixote as the shrieking crowd falls silent. And Don Quixote lifts his sword and taps the Bonesman on his left shoulder and says, ‘By order of our order, I dub thee knight of Euloge.’”

European reporters were astonished to learn that the cult has been extremely successful in its pursuit of establishing a “New World Order”-the Bonesmen’s lingo was used by then-President Bush Senior to describe the philosophy behind his foreign policy. The Bonesmen’s New World Order consists of fewer individual freedoms for the majority and of a few elected people sitting in the collective driver’s seat.

They noted that besides pushing three of its men-the two Bushes and Taft-to the presidency of the United States, the society has produced nine supreme court justices, several senators and congressmen, and that the idea of launching both Time and Newsweek magazines was first conjured up in the Bones’ Tomb. Skull and Bones members founded the American Historical Association, the American Economic Association and the American Psychological Association. More than a dozen Bonesmen have worked at the Federal Reserve and the Bonesmen are believed to control the Rockerfeller, Carnegie and Ford families’ wealth.

List of Skull and Bones Members:


Plato wrote about a future totalitarian state, ruled by the elite, or “philosopher kings” or “guardians”, instructed in the Kabbalah. The Republic wrote about communism, the elimination of marriage and the family, compulsory education, the use of eugenics by the state, and the use of deceptive propaganda methods. Plato has been at the center of all esoteric philosophy, and been praised by all the leading philosophers of the International Cartel, for whom he articulated the vision of a New World Order, like Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche…Plato taught that within societies only some are fit to lead while others only to be led which is something these rich so-called elitists would believe.  Perhaps they were following the Illuminati, the use of pseudonyms was certainly a feature used, they were wealthy and aristocratic, and skilled propagandists. Aristotle – “From the hour of their birth, some men are marked out for subjugation, others for rule”. Those who are “made to rule” are generally narcissistic, the tap on the shoulder inviting someone to become a “bone”, would certainly have to display some of these signs and symptoms.

Eugenics/Infanticide according to Plato, “all these women shall be wives in common to all the men, and not one of them shall live privately with any man; the children too should be held in common so that no parent shall know which is his own offspring, and no child shall know his parent.” ii This belief is associated with a need for eugenics, as “the best men must cohabit with the best women in as many cases as possible and the worst with the worst in the fewest, and that the offspring of the one must be reared and that of the other not, if the flock is to be as perfect as possible.” More pernicious still is his prescription for infanticide: “The offspring of the inferior, and any of those of the other sort who are born  defective, they will properly dispose of in secret, so that no one will know what has become of them. That is the condition of preserving the purity of the guardians’ breed.”
