'The Skulls': Insider Secrets of the New World Orderlies
by Uri Dowbenko
What if you were tapped -- invited to join the world's most powerful secret society -- the Order
of Skull and Bones -- a membership so exclusive that it virtually guarantees success in the material
What if you could join the ranks of global movers and shakers like George Herbert Walker Bush
(Director of CIA, US Ambassador to the UN, and President of the United States), George W. Bush (party
animal and cokehead screw-up, Governor of Texas and future President of the United States), and other
members of the Power Elite of industry, education, banking and media?
Would you do it? And what would be the consequences?
Written by John Pogue (US Marshalls) and directed by Rob Cohen (Dragonheart, Daylight), "The
Skulls" is an entertaining albeit cursory look at the hidden world of secret societies.
Luke McNamara (Joshua Jackson, "Dawson's Creek") is a working class guy, who happens to be the
varsity crew team captain at an Ivy League school, obviously Yale University.
His best friends are Will (Hill Harper), a student journalist, and the rich and blonde Chloe
Invited to join a super-secret society called the Skulls, Luke's priorities and friendships start
His soul-mate -- he's bonded to a Skulls' chum by revealing his most intimate secrets -- is Caleb
Mandrake (Paul Walker), a rich kid with a strong track record for getting into trouble and getting
bailed out by his father, Litten (Craig T. Nelson). It's really hard not to think of Bush Jr. and
Senator Leveritt (William Petersen) is Litten's own soul-mate, who is blackmailed when he doesn't
want to play ball with Mandrake anymore.
When his friend Will is killed, Luke's world is turned completely upside down.
The real life analogue of the Skulls is the Order of Skull and Bones, a Yale-based secret society
which has spread its tentacles throughout the highest echelons of government, finance and industry.
America's Secret Establishment: An Introduction to the Order of Skull and Bones (Liberty House
Press, Box 80650, Billings, MT 59108) by former Hoover Institution historian Antony C. Sutton remains
the classic must-read history of this group and its inordinate influence in global affairs.
"Those on the inside know it as the Order," Sutton begins. "Others have known it for more than 150
years as Chapter 322 of a German secret society. More formally for legal purposes, The Order was
incorporated as The Russell Trust in 1856. It was also known as the Brotherhood of Death. Those who
make light of it, or want to make fun of it, call it Skull and Bones, or just plain Bones."
"The American chapter of this German order was founded in 1833 at Yale University by General
William Huntington Russell and Alphonso Taft who in 1876 became Secretary of War in the Grant
Administration. Alphonso Taft was the father of William Howard Taft, the only man to be both
President and Chief Justice of the United States."
"The Order is not just another campus Greek letter fraternal society with passwords and handgrips,
common to most campuses," Sutton continues. "Chapter 322 is a secret society whose members are sworn
to silence. It only exists on the Yale campus. It has rules. It has ceremonial rites. It is not at
all happy with prying probing citizens known among inititiates as outsiders or vandals. Its members
always deny membership... Above all the Order is powerful, unbelievably powerful. If the reader will
persist and examine the evidence to be presented [in the book] which is overwhelming, there is no
doubt his view of the world will suddenly come sharply into focus with almost frightening clarity."
In real life, The Order meets on Deer Island in the St. Lawrence River and "the most likely
potential member is from a Bones family who is energetic, resourceful, political and probably an
amoral team player. A man who understands that to get along you have to go along. A man who will
sacrifice himself for the good of the team."
According to Sutton, who in 1983, received an eight-inch batch of documents including the
membership list, the Order is a secret society dominated by old line American families and new wealth
which has existed from 1833 to the present.
These families include: Lord (1635, Cambridge, Mass), Bundy (1635, Boston, Mass) Phelps (1630,
Dorchester, Mass), Whitney (1635, Watertown, Mass), Perkins (1631, Boston, Mass), Stimson (1635,
Watertown, Mass), Taft (1679, Braintree, Mass) Wadsworth (1632, Newtown, Mass), Gilman (1638,
Hingham, Mass), Payne (Standard Oil), Davison (JP Morgan), Pillsbury (Flour Milling), Sloane
(Retail), Weyerhaeuser (Lumber), Harriman (Railroads) and Rockefeller (Standard Oil).
Sutton writes that The Order has penetrated every segment of American society -- law, education,
media, publishing, business, industry, commerce, church, banking, Federal Reserve System,
foundations, think tanks, policy groups, legislatures, political parties and the White
House-executive branch of the US Government.
"Among academic associations, the American Historical Association, the American Economic
Association, the American Chemical Society and the American Psychological Association were all
started by members of the Order or persons close to the Order," writes Sutton.
"These are key associations for the conditioning of society," Sutton emphasizes. "The phenomenon
of The Order as the first on the scene is found especially among foundations."
The Carnegie Institution, the Peabody Foundation, Slater Foundation, Russell Foundation, Sage
Foundation and Ford Foundation were all associated with Daniel Coit Gilman, a member of the Order who
was also the first president of Johns Hopkins University.
Interestingly enough Sutton points out that "during the past one hundred years any theory of
history or historical evidence that falls outside a pattern established by the American Historical
Association and the major foundations with their grant making power has been attacked or rejected --
not on the basis of any evidence presented, but on the basis of the acceptability of the argument of
the so-called Eastern Liberal Establishment and its official historical line."
Likewise, alternatives to the politically correct version of news events and history is typically
condemned as "conspiracy theory."
The reality, however, remains that despite the Big Media Cartel's cover stories, alternative
history provides an independent appraisal of realpolitik and the real-life criminal conspiracies,
treacheries and intrigues of the Power Elite.
"There is an Establishment history, an official history, which dominates history textbooks, trade
publishing, the media and library shelves," writes Sutton. The official line always assumes that
events such as wars, revolutions, scandals, assassinations are more or less random unconnected
events. By definition events can never be the result of a conspiracy. They can never result from
premeditated planned group action. An excellent example is the Kennedy assassination when, within 9
hours of the Dallas tragedy, TV networks announced the shooting was not a conspiracy regardless of
the fact that a negative proposition can never be proven and that the investigation had barely
Every thinking man and woman must now decide between two paradigms -- the Randomness of History
(taught by Establishment teachers) vs. the Conspiracy of History (taught by Real Life experience).
Do events just happen? Or are they often "programmed" by unseen hands?
The most important point of Professor Sutton's book is his contention that the Order can
manipulate history itself through the control of the so-called Hegelian dialectic process.
"The operations of the Order cannot be explained in terms of any other philosophy," Sutton
affirms. "Therefore the Order can not be described as 'right' or 'left,' secular or religious,
Marxist or Capitalist. The Order and its objectives are all of these and none of these."
The current world situation has been deliberately created by these elites who manipulate both the
so-called "right" and the so-called "left." By controlling the resulting "synthesis" -- the end
result of Hegelian "thesis" and "antithesis" -- a Globalist New World Order is produced. You can call
it techno-fascism or techno-feudalism, but the result is the same -- a global consolidation and
mega-corporate transnational centralization of power, capital and resources.
And how does it work? By using "managed conflict" or "crisis management." a crisis or problem is
produced. Then the crisis is "managed" and the problem is "solved" with an outcome that is invariably
favorable to the goals and agendas of the Global Power Elite.
"College textbooks present war and revolution as more or less accidental results of conflicting
forces," writes Sutton. "The decay of political negotiation into physical conflict comes about,
according to these books, after valiant efforts to avoid war. Unfortunately, this is nonsense. War is
always a deliberate creative act by individuals."
"Revolution is always recorded as a spontaneous event by the politically or economically deprived
against an autocratic state," he continues. "Never in Western textbooks will you find the evidence
that revolutions need finance and the source of finance in many cases traces back to Wall Street."
Professor Sutton's prodigious body of work includes the heavily referenced history, Wall Street
and the Rise of Hitler, which explains how investment bankers, including Skull and Bones member
Prescott Sheldon Bush, fatherof George H.W. Bush and partner of investment banking firm Brown
Brothers, Harriman, financed the Nazi War Machine through New York City-based Union Banking
Corporation, a joint Thyssen Bank-Harriman operation.
Professor Sutton's landmark history entitled Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution describes
how Wall Street bankers initially financed the communists, and The Best Enemy Money Can Buy describes
how the Power Elite continued to financially support the Soviet Empire during the historical charade
called "The Cold War."
In America's Secret Establishment, Professor Sutton writes that "just as we found the Bush family
involved with the early development of the Soviet Union, then with financing the Nazis and behind the
scenes in Angola, so we find a Bush active in construction of the new dialectic arm: Communist
When President Nixon appointed George "Poppy" Bush (The Order 1948) as US Ambassador to the United
Nations in 1971, the scene was set for the development of China as the next superpower -- with the
help of advanced American technology.
Note: The Order specializes in long-range global planning.
Since then, "Poppy" George's older brother, Prescott Bush, has been managing Bush Family
investments in China. Using Asset Management International Financing & Settlement, Ltd and other
corporate fronts, he has brokered deals with Los Angeles based Hughes Aircraft as well as other joint
ventures with the repressive, human-rights abusing, murderous Chinese government.
Sound familiar? Remember the Bush Family's involvement with the thugocracies of Nazi Germany and
the Soviet Empire. It's all in the family -- so to speak.
"Are you ready to be reborn?" the secret society's initiate is asked in the movie.
Then the elaborate rituals and male-bonding ceremonies of illuminati-style networking begin --
being caged with your fellow 'soul-mate" and asked to reveal your worst fears, then covering up the
crimes and murders of your secret society buddies. After all even the younger Mandrake confesses, "My
father always covers for me."
Though disparaged by mainstream reviewers, "The Skulls"is an entertaining look at a dark and
disturbing subject. With the golden hues of an affluent youth, the film reflects the charmed
lifestyle of the young and the elite -- expensive cars, unlimited bank accounts and even the
ubiquitous sex slaves, babes in illuminati land, who march in during the Skulls' festivities.
And, for the eternally optimistic, it even has a happy ending. You can walk away from the
illuminati. And even live.
"If it's secret and elite, it can't be right," Luke concludes. As author C. Wright Mills says in
The Power Elite, these are the elite groups which network for the rest of their lives.
"He was a Skull the day he was born," says a talent scout in the film. He could have been
referring to 3rd generation Bonesman, George W. Bush, the soon-to-be Emperor of America. His father
George Herbert Walker Bush, as well as his grandfather, Prescott Bush, are both Boodleboys, i.e.
members of the Order of Skull and Bones.
Don't hold your breath for Barbara Walters to ask George Bush Jr. about his membership in the
He really can't answer that question -- you know.
It's against the rules.
