Today the Bohemian Club is located at 624 Taylor Street in San Francisco, California. The 2,700 redwood forest encampment known as Bohemian Grove can be found at 20601 Bohemian Avenue in Monte Rio. If the Bohemian Club is their office, then the Bohemian Grove is their golf course. The Bohemian Club has been through a few transformations and relocations over the years.
The Club and the Grove are separated by 100 miles. The history of the Bohemian Club dates back to 1872, but the three-week encampment inside Bohemian Grove probably began in 1878, just before Henry Edwards, one of the founding members of the Bohemian Club, decided to relocate to New York.
The gathering was called the Mid-Summer High Jinks. A mixture of poems, songs and readings, the party took place in the redwood forest of Marin County; where the Samuel P. Taylor State Park is today. Actor and head entomologist at the California Academy of Sciences, Henry Edwards moved to New York City after his send-off party on June 29th, 1878.
The next year, 1879, the gathering continued without Mr. Edwards. A night of drinking, socializing, and sleeping in the redwoods of Marin and Sonoma County became a yearly tradition of Bohemian Club members, guests, and entertainers. Locations varied for the first few years, but the annual gatherings were always held near the Russian River in Sonoma County, California.
(Charles Warren Stoddard, The Pacific Monthly, December 1907)
Part of the current Bohemian Grove location was rented out from 1893 until 1899, the year when it was purchased from Melvin Meeker – who ran a booming logging business in the Monte Rio area. The Bohemian Grove property expanded over time until it became the 2,700 acre encampment it is today.
Mark Twain and Jack London were both members of the Bohemian Club. Some of the attendees, not necessarily members of the club, included, Charlie Chaplin, Bing Crosby, Barry Goldwater, Walt Disney, Nelson Rockefeller, Walter Cronkite, Henry Kissinger, and former German chancellor Helmut Schmidt.
It is generally believed the Bohemian Club began as a fraternity among male journalists, artists, musicians and others who enjoyed the entertainment arts of the late 1800s. Membership dues are a necessity for the club’s existence and growth. In order to keep up with maintenance and expansion costs, the club began to extend its membership to some very powerful people.
Soon journalists and art lovers were joined by industrialists, banking elitists and government officials. Also included as members or guests of the annual gathering were corporate CEOs, Federal Reserve Board members, military contractors, oil company businessmen, members of the mainstream media, and high-ranking foreign officials. Women need not apply for membership. In general, they are not welcome.
Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh visited the annual Bohemian Grove gathering in 1962 and apparently impressed a lot of the attendees that year. Once called “the greatest men’s party on earth” by President Herbert Hoover, the Bohemian Grove has also been described as a place where “all those rich republicans go up and stand naked against redwood trees,” according to former United States President Bill Clinton.
In a private recording President Nixon vocalized his disgust for “the most faggy goddamned thing you could ever imagine with that San Francisco crowd that goes there.”

Although President Nixon stated he couldn’t “shake hands with anybody from San Francisco” he still attended the “upper-class” gathering “from time to time.” In 1971 President Nixon was set to give a speech at the “private club of businessmen outside of San Francisco” but he allegedly canceled his attendance that year in order to avoid bringing unwanted media attention to the Bohemian Club.
Though the Bohemian Club is not limited to attendees that are members of the Republican party, Journalist Phillip Weiss of Spy Magazine reported that “every republican president since Herbert Hoover” has attended the annual gathering.
David Rockefeller allegedly attended at least once in February of 1987. Rockefeller was heavily involved in the creation of the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, as well as the prosperity of groups like the Bilderberg Group and the Federal Reserve Board of Governors. Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon have also been photographed inside Bohemian Grove.
Phillip Weiss also reported that the 1989 gathering included George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, Newt Gengrich, Colin Powell and Henry Kissinger.
(Spy magazine, November 1989)
Despite a long waiting list to become a member of the club, some are given honorary membership titles. Others are invited guests, but mostly all are male unless they’re employees; and even then the women are restricted to certain areas and curfews within Bohemian Grove.
There are over 100 camps inside the 160 acre main encampment. Some of the names of the camps sounds a bit creepy to me, like the “Lost Angels” or the “Sempervirens.” Other camp names like the “Caveman” camp or the “Silverado Squatters” sound a little more simplistic.
The “Stowaway” camp harbors the Rockefeller family and the “Owls Nest” camp is where previous United States Presidents lay down their cares for three weeks. The “Hill Billies” camp is where people like George Bush Sr. and sons can be found.
“During the 2000 Grove summer camp,” Mike Hanson explained in his book, Bohemian Grove: Cult of Conspiracy, “they announced Dick Cheney as George W. Bush’s vice-presidential running mate from Bohemian Grove. CNN reported in July of 2000 that the decision had been partially made and that George Bush Jr. had been consulting with George Herbert Walker Bush, the former president and his father, at Bohemian Grove.”
In his documentary film on the Bohemian Club, Alex Jones stated, “There are about ninety-five different clubs within the Bohemian Club. All the different club houses and log cabin-style mansions that are built into the cliffs have different names and different memberships. The most elite club, according to press reports, is Mandaley, with Henry Kissinger and Paul Volkner, former Federal Reserve chairman and other New World Order bosses.”
(Alex Jones and Mike Hanson)
In his book, Bohemian Grove: Cult of Conspiracy, Mike Hanson wrote that “about one-fifth of the members are either directors of one or more of the Fortune 1000 companies, corporate CEOs, top government officials (current and former) and members of important policy councils or major foundations. The remaining members are mostly regional business/legal elites with a small mix of academics, military officers, artists, or medical doctors. Most of them are Californians, 70 percent or more are political conservatives, and 99 percent of them re white. And all of them are very, very rich.”
On October 26th, 2007, Bill Clinton was asked about the Bohemian Club during a speech that aired on CNN, “The Bohemian Club? Did you say the Bohemian Club?”
“Yeah,” responded the man who dared to ask the former president such a question. As Clinton answered, the man was escorted out of the building for speaking out of turn.
Clinton continued, “That’s where all those rich Republicans go up and stand naked against redwood trees, right? I’ve never been to the Bohemian Club but you ought to go. It’d be good for you. Get some fresh air.” The crowd responded with laughter.
In total, there are probably close to 3,000 Bohemian Club members and guests who attend annually. I don’t believe the Bohemian Club is limited to Republicans dancing naked in the woods, but it’s important to note that former Presidents Calvin Coolage, William Taft, Theodore Roosevelt, Richard Nixon, Dwight Eisenhower, Ronald Reagan, George Bush Sr. and Jr. have all been known to attend the Bohemian Grove festivities. Henry Kissinger has admitted to attending the Grove. James Baker and Dick Cheney have also attended the Grove. They’re all Republicans.
Cremation of Care
“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” [Mathew 6:19-21]
The first presentation of the Grove Play happened in 1881 on a stage in front of the giant redwood trees of Bohemian Grove. The master of ceremonies or “Sire” was James F. Bowman. At the 1893 gathering Bohemian Club member Joseph D. Redding wrote the outline for a section of the Grove Play, “Sacrifice in the Forest” or Druid Jinks. Redding’s story focused on the battle between Christianity and paganism, ending with the druids repenting of their evil ways.
Up until 1913 the Cremation of Care was only one segment within the annual Grove Play. The Grove Play was always written, produced and performed by members. Then in 1913, the Cremation of Care became the opening show for the Grove gathering and gained the label of the “secondary Grove play.” The symbolic death of care was introduced in the 1904 Grove Play, The Hamadryads by William Henry Irvin.
The 1906 production of “The Owl and Care” is listed in the Bohemian Club’s dictionary as “not strictly a grove play.” It’s believed Care was not killed in 1922. In 1923, Charles K. Field was tasked with writing a standard script for the annual Cremation of Care. Since then, the core of this script has been used for the ritual every year. “Care” may be more related to worry than today’s definition of care.
The Cremation of Care received thunderous applause as a human effigy is sacrificed before a giant owl, while men in druid clothing watch the body burn to ashes. Alex Jones filmed his experience in Monte Rio when he and Mike Hanson posed as invited guests, entered the Bohemian Grove compound on July 15th, 2000, and filmed the Cremation of Care play.
In the Foreword to Bohemian Grove: Cult of Conspiracy, writer and radio host Texe Marrs wrote, “It appears that the ancient Canaanite and Hebrew deity “Moloch”…is represented at the Bohemian ritual by a 42-foot (some say forty foot) tall owl-like figure. Shrouded in flames, this owl deity is surrounded by Druidic priests and other characters. During the ceremony, chosen “victims” are sacrificed. Their screams and shrieks pierce and shatter the still night air.”
“The Bohemian Club’s historical annals even admitted their obsession with the occult,” wrote Mike Hanson, “and what they called ‘Druid rituals.’ Amongst the great redwood trees they revived ancient ceremonies that in truth had their roots not in the Druids, but in Babylon itself.”
On page 196 of his book, 9/11: Descent Into Tyranny, Alex Jones described the owl-like figure. “As we were walking into the Grove we came within about ten yards of the forty-foot stone owl that sits to the north side of the small lake. We were only about seven yards away from the black alter that sits at the base of the owl.”
Some say the cremation of care ceremony is just a harmless play. Others believe it’s satanic. Either way, there should be no doubt that this ritual is taking place once a year behind the property line of Bohemian Grove. Before the Cremation of Care began, Mike Hanson was handed a printed program of the 121st Annual Cremation of Care, “which would imply that the first such ritual took place in 1879.”
Hanson is certain that by 1913, the Cremation of Care was taking place inside the Bohemian Grove. During their infiltration, according to Hanson’s book, Alex and Mike saw only one African-American, and they suspected he was a simple worker at the Grove, not a member.
The presumed-employee was the one handing out full-color programs about the 121st annual Cremation of Care. The man noticed Alex and Mike walking faster than the other people in the crowd. The two wanted to get a good spot to film the Cremation of Care ritual. Hanson purposely wanted to sit behind the other members, as he did not want anyone behind him. Someone might notice he had a hidden camera in his bag. Of course, someone could have also noticed that Hanson forgot to cover the red record light on the camera. God was with them.
Alex Jones and Mike Hanson were able to witness the Cremation of Care first-hand, and film it in its entirety. They almost got caught several times while inside the encampment. When questioned, Jones just said he was with the Hillbillies. “The Hillbilly Camp is the camp that the Bushes are members of,” Alex Jones later recalled for his book, “along with many other notables in American industry, banking, media, and government.”
Alex Jones wrote in Appendix B of his book, 9/11 Descent Into Tyranny, “The feasting revelers were beginning to break up and to travel down paths toward the lake. We decided to go ahead and mix in with them and go where they were going. They were going toward the east side of the [river]bank about one hundred yards across the north tip of the lake where the idol and altar stood…Then, out of the woods, all of a sudden came thirty priests in black robes, their faces painted up like death, with a man dressed like the Grim Reaper pulling a wagon with a bound body. Then we noticed something that we had seen during the day. Large black canopies had been unfurled out of the trees on the western side of the bank (we’re on the eastern side – only about 70 yards away at that point) and they unfurled those, and the wagon pulled behind it…The reason I was able to see the priest in the black robes, the priest painted-up like death, and the bound body on the back of the wagon, was because they were all carrying torches. The place was pretty illuminated by the torches being carried by the thirty priests in front and the thirty priests behind the wagon…The wagon went behind these big black sheets hanging out of the trees, down to the ground, obscuring the view, and for about 10 minutes nothing happened…So, the priest talked about “goodly Tyre and Babylon.” Well, there is only one “great owl” of Babylon and “goodly” Tyre. If you read your Bible, or any historical document of the time, they were burning children in the Babylonian and Canaanite kingdoms before the owl-god Moloch…there was an old-fashioned river-style boat, with that grim reaper character who had been driving the wagon, and he was poling himself across the water with the bound body up on the bow. He brought the bound body to the high priest who was waiting for it at the foot of the owl, at the bottom of large circular steps on which the owl sits. Then, in very macabre fashion, the two black-clad priests rubbed and caressed the sacrificial body and brought it before the owl. The body begged for its life, over a speaker system…The body again begged for mercy. The high priest then walked down (with some difficulty, because this high priest was so old, he could hardly even walk), and lit the pyre on fire. He began to say that he would read the signs in the remains, a deep occult tradition. This is not the Hollywood devil with red pajamas – this is the real deal, Babylon mystery religion-style. The body continued to scream in pain. Suddenly, all of those little metal crosses that we had seen along the bank during the day burst into flame. So, I was there witnessing something right out of the medieval painter Hieronymus Bosch’s Visions of Hell: burning metal crosses, priests in red and black robes with the high priest in a silver robe with a red cape, a burning body screaming in pain, a giant stone great-horned owl, world leaders, bankers, media and the head of academia engaged in these activities. It was total insanity.”
“Would you let your neighbor even walk your dog or babysit your children if they were sacrificing humans in effigy to some 45-foot stone owl god, and chanting, “Oh, Great Owl of Bohemia?”” – Mike Hanson
Dai Butsu of Kamkura
The Great Buddha of Kamakura (Kamakura Daibutsu) is a bronze statue of Amida Buddha, which stands on the grounds of Kotokuin Temple.
With a height of 13.35 meters (44 feet) it is the second tallest bronze Buddha statue in Japan, surpassed only by the statue in Nara’s Todaiji Temple.
The statue was cast in 1252 and originally located inside a large temple hall. However, the temple buildings were destroyed multiple times by typhoons and a tidal wave in the 14th and 15th centuries. Since 1495, the Buddha has been standing in the open air.
Inside the Bohemian Grove, a 70-foot-tall replica of the Kamakura Daibutsu was built from plaster of Paris, erected by Bohemian Club member and sculptor Marion Wells in 1892.
The 70-foot-tall replica of the Kamakura Daibutsu was eventually replaced by the owl in 1929, after years of deterioration. Photos can be found in the National Park Service archives and the Muir Woods National Monument archives.
Former United States Ambassador to the Soviet Union Thomas J. Watson Jr. wrote about his lakeside chat in front of Bohemian Club members in his autobiography, Father, Son & Co. – My Life at IBM and Beyond. Thomas Watson Jr. joined the Bohemian Club in 1981, “I went to the Grove as a guest seven or eight times while I ran IBM, but I didn’t actually join until I came back from Moscow in 1981.”
Watson’s first speech at Bohemian Grove was in 1982, “When I got up to speak I could see before me in the audience such dignitaries as Henry Kissinger. It was my big chance to pitch bilateral reduction of nuclear arms and I gave it everything I had.” In 1989, the same year Spy magazine’s Philip Weiss infiltrated Bohemian Grove, French Prime Minister Michel Rocard gave a speech at the Grove. Invited as Henry Kissinger’s guest speaker, Rocard spoke about the plan to create a European Union.
Years before the European Union was officially founded on November 1st, 1993, “Rocard outlined to the letter, exactly what would happen in the future,” wrote Mike Hanson. “Europe would eliminate trade barriers, establish a central currency, and a central government. He even predicted that Great Britain would be the only nation that would resist, but that the UK would eventually “get on the train when it is leaving the station.”
Based on the Bohemian Grove Action Network’s list of Lakeside Chats, Ferdinand Graf Von Galen’s speech on August 1st, 1980, was titled, “World Bank and International Monetary Systems.” Galen is a former West German banker, a private investor whose resume includes chairman of the German Stock Exchange and board member of the United States Trust Company.
On July 7th, 1983, Galen was convicted of breach of trust by a Frankfurt court. The New York Times reported, “In 1983 other West German banks contributed $320 million to bail out S-M-H after it was threatened by bad loans to the insolvent IBH construction machinery enterprise. The court found that Count von Galen knew of IBH’s shaky finances when he approved $460 million of loans to it.”
Other notable speakers over the years include Dick Cheney on July 26th, 1991, whose speech was titled, “Major Defense Problems of the 21st Century.” The same year on July 22nd, Elliot Richardson, the Nixon Administration’s Attorney General spoke about “Defining a New World Order.”
On July 25th, 1997, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s topic was “Church, State & the Constitution.” Henry Kissinger’s speech on July 29th, 2000, asked the question, “Do We Need a Foreign Policy?” MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews spoke on “American Exceptionalism” on July 12th, 2003.
“In a speech given at the 1981 camp by the late nuclear scientist Dr. Edward Teller (aka “father of the H-bomb”),” wrote Mike Hanson, “he accurately predicted that the United States would go to war in the Persian Gulf – ten years prior to our first incursion into Iraq.”
During an interview on February 14th, 2003, Alex Jones added, “I’ve seen photographs of Bush and Bush Jr., the former president and the current president, speaking in front of the owl statue at the Grove. That was in one of the books the Bohemian Club publishes privately, the annals of each decade. I believe that is in the 1986-1996 volume.”
Discussing Bohemian Grove in 2011, Alex Jones told Russia Today, “The reason they have Secret Service there, the reason there’s such security is because major global decisions are being made inside the North American/British power axis known as the Anglo-American establishment, that their own historian Carol Quigley wrote about.”
Alex added that West German Chancellor Helmut Schmidt wrote about “major decisions” being made inside the Bohemian Club gatherings. “They release the minutes, usually decades after the fact, of meetings they had at the chalet,” Alex told Russia Today. “It’s a meeting-house, holds several hundred.” The Bohemian Club releases information like their Lakeside Chats to local media, including the San Francisco Chronicle from time to time.
Alex Jones Meets David Gergen
Alex Jones confronted Bohemian Club member David Gergen – former presidential advisor to Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton – during the 2004 Republican Convention. In 1993 David Gergen resigned from the Bohemian Club.
On June 11th, 1993, the Washington Times reported, “Presidential counselor David Gergen resigned yesterday from the all-male Bohemian Club, three days after saying he would not run around naked at its annual Bohemian Grove encampment and insisting he would not quit. White House spokeswoman Dee Dee Myers announced the resignation along with Mr. Gergen’s departure from 17 other interest groups, charities and public boards ranging from the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderberg Group and Council on Foreign Relations.”
The confrontation between David Gergen and Alex Jones can be seen in the documentary, Dark Secrets of the Bohemian Grove/Order of Death:
Alex Jones: I read a Washington Times article many years ago where you had a comment about the [Bohemian Grove], now it’s been in the Wall Street Journal…and that’s the Bohemian Grove and back in 1996 when you joined as a Clinton advisor, the republicans were criticizing you, ‘Oh, what about the Bohemian Grove’ and then you countered them by saying, ‘Hey, I don’t run around in the woods naked’, what did that mean?
David Gergen: I don’t know what quote you’re referring to…I’m a happy member of the Bohemian Grove…I like the folks who come there and it’s really inappropriate for me to talk about the group beyond that.
Alex Jones: Have you been there for the ceremony with the Cremation of Care?
David Gergen: Frankly, I don’t think that’s something I need to talk to you about.
Alex Jones: Really?
David Gergen: That’s right.
Alex Jones: Well I’m Alex Jones and I snuck in there in 2000. I’m the guy who blew it wide open, that got the video, it’s been in National TV.
David Gergen: Well, I disrespect you for that.
Alex Jones: There’s a lot of big public officials in there, don’t we deserve to know?
David Gergen: I’m sorry. You took an understanding when you went in there that you would not do that film. Did you have an understanding when you went in there?
Alex Jones: No.
David Gergen: Did you crash it?
Alex Jones: Yes.
David Gergen: Yeah, and they have no trespassing signs there doesn’t it?
Alex Jones: No, they put them up after. I just walked in.
David Gergen: I’m sorry sir. I’ve been there before…and I’m sorry you violated the understanding. That was not a gentlemanly thing to do.
Alex Jones: Well, what about the rituals? Were the rituals gentlemanly?
David Gergen: Sir, everything – that you, I-I don’t owe you this comment.
Alex Jones: I know. I appreciate it.
David Gergen: This is what you call ‘Ambush Journalism’ and I disrespect you for that as well. Thank you and goodbye.
Alex Jones: Have you ever been to the ritual?
David Gergen: That’s none of your damn business…you go and make understandings with people and violate them, you ambush people on the street. That’s an inappropriate form of journalism…if you want to be uncivil and rude and ungentlemanly, that’s up to you.
Alex Jones: You guys are setting policy in there, Mr. Gergen.
David Gergen: I’m sorry, nobody sets policy in there. We try to be gentlemen and obviously, you don’t belong there.
Alex Jones: “Weaving Spiders come not here?”
“Neither shall you give any of your offspring to offer them to Molech, nor shall you profane the name of your God; I am the Lord. [Leviticus 18:21]
Search for Truth
Alex Jones explained what led up to the Bohemian Grove infiltration on July 15th, 2000, “I asked Mike Hanson, my cameraman, to come along with me because I knew he had the courage to actually go through with it. I’d seen him display courage in the past, in all kinds of situations. Mike and I have safely gotten into (and out of) some pretty volatile situations before! However, I was the only person under contract with the British producers – Jon Ronson and World of Wonder, the production company. We basically had an agreement that they would pay for the trip to California. They flew us out there, they gave us all the maps and stuff we needed to prepare in exchange for us sharing the video we shot with them. We had a verbal contract between us that I would sneak into the Grove, I would shoot the video, and I would take the risk so that he and his company wouldn’t have any liability. That way, there wouldn’t be any criminal charges brought against them for trespassing. We, on the other hand, had no such protection.”
“This has really been life changing for me, to go in there and witness this and then have some people spin it, like, “oh, it’s just fraternity fun.” These people were deadly serious. This is a story that needs to be told and the establishment is trying to suppress it. Please spread this information to every corner of the world.” – Alex Jones
If powerful people who run this world are watching or participating in the Cremation of Care ritual at the Bohemian Grove, then the public has the right to know who they are and why they would attend something like this. More so, if these people are masquerading as Christians, men of faith, or moral human beings, then the truth of their involvement in the Cremation of Care should be exposed. God explained to Jeremiah that the people of Israel and of Judah turned their backs on him.
“And they have turned to Me the back, and not the face; though I taught them, rising up early and teaching them, yet they have not listened to receive instruction. But they set their abominations in the house which is called by My name, to defile it. And they built the high places of Baal which are in the Valley of the Son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire to Molech, which I did not command them, nor did it come into My mind that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.” [Jeremiah 32:33-35]
People passed their sons and daughters through the fire to Molech, all because they were deceived by the evil one. If we do not read the scriptures we may miss the warning of what we should not do, but more importantly we will miss what God wants us to do while we are here on earth. Spread the Word. Spread the truth. Spread the Way.
“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thorn bushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.” [Mathew 7:15-20]
“And Jesus, when He came out, saw a great multitude and was moved with compassion for them, because they were like sheep not having a shepherd. So He began to teach them many things.” [Mark 6:34]
Return to Bohemian Grove 2015
On July 25th, 2015, one day before the Bohemian Grove gathering ended, fellow researcher and activist Manny Trev and I went back to the Bohemian Grove and surrounding areas to observe what was happening outside of Bohemian Grove. The two men in the white truck were driving up and down Bohemian Avenue, which leads to the entrance of Bohemian Grove, and even filmed us filming them.
“Smile, guys,” said the passenger as the truck drove by. They decided not to stop and chat with us this time, which was unfortunate. I’m sure we could have had a good conversation about what is really happening inside Bohemian Grove. Maybe next time.
As we approached the entrance of Bohemian Grove I began to film the Bohemian Grove parking lot, as I do every year. The security guard made a call to his superiors, telling them there were two people taking pictures. That’s when we met Mr. White Hat, a Bohemian Club/Grove employee. He waddled out of the golf cart and made his way towards me.
“I need you to get off the property,” he demanded.
“We’re not on the property,” I told the old man.
“Yeah you are on the property.”
“No, I’m not. I know where the property-line is, sir.”
The Bohemian Club employee then got back into his little golf cart and went to speak to the Sonoma County Deputy Sheriff, who was parked inside the property of the Bohemian Grove. A second employee shadowed the bigger one, but never said anything.
A few minutes later the deputy came and spoke to me, “Hi,” she politely said.
“How’s your day going?”
“My day is going great,” I responded. “How about you?”
“Good. There’s just a request to move to the other side of the road. Would that be ok with you sir?”
“Um, sure. Why not?”
“Sounds like a plan,” said the deputy.
“Would you mind answering one question for me? Please? Pretty please?” I asked. Finally, I thought I would be able to have a real conversation with a deputy sheriff about why they were guarding the Bohemian Grove entrance, on the Bohemian Club’s private property.
“You can try.”
“I can try? Yeah. Well we were just wondering, I had spoken to a deputy sheriff two weeks ago and I had asked him why they are guarding the Bohemian Grove property. Can you shed any light on that?”
“Nope, just doing my job. Ok,” the deputy told me.
“They paid you for that?”
“So, thank you for moving to the other side. I’d really appreciate it.”
“Sure.” As requested, I did move to the other side of the road, for a few minutes anyways. They can request whatever they want to, but if I want to move back to the other side of the road, I know I can.
Even the employees who gave us the donuts last year pointed out where the property-line is. In 2012, 2013, 2014, and even two weeks prior in 2015, I stood in the same spot where the elderly employee in the white hat said I was on the property. Never, in all the hours I had spent in front of Bohemian Grove, did anyone, either an officer of the law or a Bohemian Club employee, ever ask me to move to the other side of the road.
Once I stepped to the other side of the road, the employee was still not pleased. Now they wanted me to move further back down the street. That was not going to happen. “I’ve been told by many sheriff deputies that this is the property-line and we can stand here,” I told the deputy.
“Ok,” the deputy seemed to agree, “but he was saying, where you’re standing belongs to a different property owner.”
The employee said something to the officer that I couldn’t hear. Nor did I care what he had to say. So we all stood there for a moment. The man began to walk back towards the Grove when I asked the deputy, “So is there someone that I could talk to? A sheriff’s deputy or a sheriff maybe, and find out why the sheriff’s deputies are guarding the Bohemian Grove? What would be the best way? Contact Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office, I guess?”
“Yeah, you could try that route if you’d like,” the deputy answered.
“Oh, sheriff deputies are always nice to us. Every year.”
The deputy smiled, “Well, we’re humans too.”
“And we do appreciate that and we are too. We’re not trying to be disrespectful or trying to cause trouble or anything.”
“I get that.”
For a second time the elderly employee began to walk away, but stopped when the deputy asked me, “What’s your plan here today? I haven’t met you before.”
“No and actually, no I haven’t see you here before.”
“Ok, I’m Caroline.”
“I’m Greg, nice to meet you.”
“Ok, are you part of a group or?”
“Just a private citizen?”
“Yeah,” I responded, “just citizens. We’re just trying to figure out what’s going on here and so far I haven’t gotten too many answers so we’ll be here ‘till we do.”
“But it sounds like you’re aware of the trespassing laws, correct?” Deputy Caroline asked me.
“Well, I am aware of what the sheriff deputies have told us, where we can stand and where we can’t stand.”
“Ok, just as long as the person who owns the private property where you’re standing doesn’t complain. If that person complains, you might have to move to where your friend is.”
“I would have no problem with that. No problem,” I told her. I should have asked her who owned the “private property” where I was standing. Exactly where I stood was the same place where, in 2014, a tree branch almost fell onto one of the Bohemian Club employees during that year’s protest.
I also should have asked her about the truck that was parked behind me on the same private property for two weeks now, and why it hadn’t been towed despite the truck being parked behind a “no parking” sign. But I didn’t think of it at the time. Maybe I’ll include those questions in my letter to the Sonoma County Sheriff.
“Alright Greg, take it easy.”
“Thank you very much.”
From there, the deputy and the two employees went around the corner, out my sight, to discuss the matter further. The employees were not happy to say the least. As minutes went by I could hear the employees discussing how they could push us back away from their property-line.
Deputy Sheriff Caroline must have gotten tired of their shenanigans because I could hear her voice rising in the distance as she explained there was nothing they could do. Soon after that, a second deputy came from deeper inside Bohemian Grove and spoke to Deputy Caroline. Then a third officer arrived.
Eventually a fourth one showed up as well. Four deputy sheriffs converge near the front gates of Bohemian Grove because two protesters showed up on a warm afternoon? That seemed a bit excessive. Especially considering the conversation I just had with Caroline.
Out of nowhere two other citizens joined us and had a good conversation with Manny Trev as I filmed three officers in the distance, watching us, with a fourth officer in his patrol car parked behind them.
On his radio show, Alex Jones talked about the Bohemian Grove on Friday, July 24th, 2015, in the second-half of the second hour, confirming that the three-week encampment began on July 11th weekend and lasted until July 26th. It is believed the Cremation of care took place July 11th. Those numerologists must be proud.
“We know this,” Alex Jones explained, “Bohemian Grove is going on right now. Its final day is this Sunday and they are doing occultic rituals, having orgies, having homosexual sex, and the issue is it’s the Republican leadership doing it. Not everybody that goes there is bad. Not everybody there is a Satanist. But it’s a way to induct ruling-class people as the doorway into the deeper cult. But even Jon Ronson, who snuck in with me but made me promise…not to say he was there because of liability, he could have gotten sued. He, I and Mike Hanson snuck in. I had to not put a lot of the footage into my film because it was Jon Ronson there with us. But I put Dark Secrets Inside Bohemian Grove out and he was there. He saw it with me. He saw the big photo on a tree of Henry Kissinger – there was Secret Service nearby so I couldn’t get the camera hidden and get footage of it – dressed in drag doing something sexual. And the point is, this is not some moral judgment of this. Not because I don’t make moral judgments, but because, get past that and just see it for what it is. Blackmail. Even Spy Magazine, even People Magazine, admits huge problems with HIV at the Bohemian Grove, back to the 70s, back to the early 80s; just huge bizarre behavior with former Presidents, Prime Ministers, British Royalty, Dutch Royalty. Female prostitutes down the road at hotels. 2,700 acres with just men having sex with each other. This is to compromise people and it’s going on right now. Same thing at Skull & Bones, homoerotic. Worshiping the devil. Every culture that goes downhill ends up worshipping a dark entity. So whether you believe it’s real or not, the elites do believe in the devil. I’ve been there, inside for five hours and I thought it was like a stupid devil-worship play. Except the men were raptured, they were dead serious, more focused than I’ve seen people in any holy-roller church that I’ve attended…these people were hardcore serious and their eyes were on fire during the mock-human sacrifice of a child; and we say ‘mock’ because it appeared to be mock. People say, ‘You’re covering up.’ Look, they found dead kids in the area. There’s been a lot of weird stuff. You talk to the locals, it’s like one of those vampire movies from the 60s with Peter Cushing…he’s trying to talk to locals and they won’t talk to him. It’s like that. It’s very Transylvanian-looking too.”
