      The Secret Society That Ties Bush And Kerry
      Revelations That Leading Candidates For The US Presidency Were
      "Skull And Bones" Members Have Provoked Claims Of Elitism

      NEW YORK -- The "tomb" stands dark and hulking at the heart of the
      Yale University campus, almost windowless, and shuttered and
      padlocked in the thick snow of winter storms.

      Built to mimic a Greco-Egyptian temple, it is the headquarters of
      the Order of the Skull and Bones, America's most elite and elusive
      secret society - and it has become the unlikely focus of this year's
      presidential election. It turns out that four leading contestants
      for the White House in November's election were 1960s undergraduates
      at Yale: President Bush and Democratic rivals Governor Howard Dean,
      Sen John Kerry and Sen Joseph Lieberman.

      What is more, two are "Bonesmen". Both Sen Kerry, now the Democrat
      front runner, and President Bush belong to the 172-year-old society,
      which aims to get its members into positions of power. This
      presidential election seems destined to become the first in history
      to pit one Skull and Bones member against another.

      The phenomenon of the "Yalies", as Yale alumni are known, has
      provoked an intense debate over apparent elitism among Americans
      amazed that - in a democracy of almost 300 million people - the
      battle for power should be waged among candidates drawn from the
      4,000 who graduated from Yale in four different years of the 1960s.

      "To today's Yale undergraduates it seems quite extraordinary," said
      Jacob Leibenluft, a student and a reporter on the Yale Daily News,
      the campus newspaper. "For some it's a source of pride, to others
      it's a source of shame."

      In fact Yale, with annual tuition fees of $28,400 (£16,000), has
      long sent graduates to the top of all professions from the campus in
      New Haven, Connecticut, where it was founded in 1731.

      The Skull and Bones is the most exclusive organisation on campus.
      Members have ranged from President William Taft to Henry Luce, the
      founder of the Time-Life magazine empire, and from Averill Harriman,
      the businessman and diplomat, to the first President George Bush.

      Alexandra Robbins, a Yale graduate and author of a book on the Skull
      and Bones, Secrets of the Tomb, said: "It is staggering that so many
      of the candidates are from Yale, and even more so that we are
      looking at a presidential face-off between two members of the Skull
      and Bones. It is a tiny club with only 800 living members and 15 new
      members a year.

      "But there has always been a sentiment at Yale to push students into
      public service, an ethos of the elite making their way through the
      corridors of power - and the sole purpose of the Bones is power."

      The four candidates' time at Yale spans the period from 1960, when
      Sen Lieberman began his studies, through Sen Kerry's arrival in 1962
      and Mr Bush's two years later, to 1971, when Mr Dean graduated - a
      period that swung through the bright hopes of the Kennedy presidency
      to tumult and bitterness over Vietnam.

      Mr Lieberman and Mr Kerry served on the same committee to oppose
      resistance to the Vietnam war draft, but otherwise the four appear
      not to have known each other at the time. They all studied history
      and political science, however, and had some of the same professors
      and academic mentors.

      Robert Dahl, the then head of the political science department,
      said: "Many of us had the sense we were preparing future leaders,
      but I don't think any of us had any idea we were teaching so many
      presidential candidates."

      While at Yale all four showed hints of the varying character traits
      that would eventually propel them, on different paths, towards the
      top of American politics.

      Mr Lieberman, the grandson of immigrants, arrived from a state
      school, probably a beneficiary of an unofficial 10 per cent quota of
      places for Jews that Yale then operated. Politically ambitious, he
      chaired the Yale Daily News, the most sought-after student position
      on campus.

      Sen Kerry is remembered as "running for president since freshman
      year". One of his contemporaries said: "He was obsessed by politics
      to the exclusion of all else. At that age, it's a bit creepy." He
      dated Janet Auchincloss, the half-sister of Jackie Kennedy, the
      First Lady, won the presidency of the Yale Political Union, and was
      initiated into the Skull and Bones before joining the United States
      Navy for service in Vietnam.

      In laid-back contrast, Mr Bush achieved only a "C" grade
      academically and took little interest in politics. He joined
      a "sports jock" fraternity and followed his father into the Skull
      and Bones.

      By the time Mr Dean arrived in 1967, Yale was admitting women and
      setting more store by applicants' academic merit than their social
      background. The future Vermont governor showed a disdain for Yale
      politics and resigned from a fraternity order in a dispute over a
      coffee bar.

      Whether the four men's Yale backgrounds is a plus with voters is
      uncertain. Mr Dean seems embarrassed, once saying he studied "in New
      Haven, Connecticut" to avoid mentioning Yale by name. Mr Bush makes
      light of his student years, apparently revelling in his reputation
      for socialising, not studying.

      The Skull and Bones connection is more troublesome. Mr Kerry laughed
      nervously when questioned about his and Mr Bush's membership on
      television. "You both were members of the Skull and Bones; what does
      that tell us?" he was asked. "Yup. Not much," he replied.

      Not surprisingly, the club's rituals fascinate many Americans.
      Robbins's book describes a social club with arcane rules, a hoard of
      relics ranging from Hitler's silver collection to the skull of the
      Indian chief Geronimo - plus a resident prostitute.

      She says initiation rites include a mud-wrestling bout, receiving a
      beating and the recitation by a new member of his sexual history -
      delivered while he lies naked in a coffin. Elevation of a Bonesman
      creates opportunities for his fellows, and Robbins says that
      President Bush has appointed 10 members to his administration,
      including the head of the Securities and Exchange Commission.

      She recently surveyed 100 of the estimated 800 living Bonesmen on
      their preferred election winner - Sen Kerry or President Bush.
      Perhaps not surprisingly, given that both are pledged to advance the
      interests of fellow Bonesmen, "They answered that they didn't care.
      Whichever way it went, it was a win-win for them."

      John Kerry's Roots


      John Kerry is a practicing Catholic - but his Grandfather lived in
      the Czech Republic and his name was Fritz Kohn, a Jew, who changed
      his name to Kerry in 1902.

      (Note - Kerry's allegience to Skull and Bones...and potentially to
      Israel...are important issues for voters to consider as the primary
      season advances.)

      This information is from Robert Gaylon Ross:

      Who's Who of the Elite : Members of the Bilderbergs,
      Council on Foreign Relations, and Trilateral Commission

      by Robert Gaylon Ross Sr.
      Released: January, 2000
      ISBN: 0964988801
      Paperback

      Note - Knowing Kerry's full (and all candidates') ethnic and
      religious background...be it Protestant, Catholic, or Buddhist is
      important information. From the major controversy over John
      Kennedy's Catholic background and coming fast-forward to the current
      zionist neocon 'dual loyalty' issue influencing the US government at
      the highest levels, the American public needs to weigh everything
      about each candidate before deciding who to support. Kerry's Skull
      and Bones membership is (or should be), in and of itself, a huge
      issue. America just might see a choice of Bonesmen on the ballot...

      Senator John Kerry's Jewish roots and
      membership in Skulls and Bones

      by
      Ernesto Cienfuegos
      La Voz de Aztlan

      Los Angeles, Alta California - January 30, 2004 -
      (ACN) La Voz de Aztlan has received startling
      revelations that Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts,
      and contender for the USA presidency, has Jewish
      roots and is a card carrying member of the sinister
      secret society at Yale University called Skull and
      Bones.

      Skull and Bones, with headquarters on the campus of
      Yale University, also includes President George Bush,
      Bush's father and grandfather as members. The secret
      society has bizarre and cultish initiation
      ceremonies and there are credible allegations that
      Prescott Bush, George's grandfather, personally
      desecrated the grave of the Apache Chief Geronimo
      and stole his skull.

      Also, just recently, I uncovered evidence that
      Prescott Bush paid a covert agent of the US
      government, by the name of Emil L. Holmdahl,
      $25,000 dollars for the skull of the legendary
      Mexican revolutionary Pancho Villa in 1926.
      Holmdahl was arrested in Parral, Chihuahua for
      desecrating Villa's tomb but high level interference
      by the US State Department resulted in his release.

      Alexandra Robbins, author and alumnus of Yale
      University as well as others have maintain that the
      skulls are now kept in a trophy cabinet inside the
      headquarters of Skull and Bones located on the Yale
      campus. There are currently efforts by Indian
      tribes and Mexican groups to recover the skulls and
      return them to their proper place.

      There is no doubt that many Americans who see John
      Kerry as a quintessential WASPish looking politician
      with an Irish name will be shocked to learn that he
      is actually, what Joel Kotkin of the Jewish Journal
      of Greater Los Angeles calls, a "marrano" or a
      hidden closeted Jew.

      It turns out that two of Kerry's grandparents were
      Jewish. John Kerry told the Boston Globe that has
      known for 15 years that his paternal grandmother was
      Jewish, but that he had no information on his
      paternal grandfather's roots. Kerry's grandfather
      was also born to a Jewish family. His grandfather,
      Frederick Kerry, was born in the Czech Republic as
      Fritz Kohn but changed his name when he immigrated
      to the United States in 1905.

      The worst and most damaging information is Kerry's
      membership in the Satanic secret society Skulls and
      Bones. We have already witnessed what Skull and Bones
      member George Bush has done to Iraq. Do we want
      another Skull and Bones member as president? It is
      starting to look like the Reverend Al Sharpton may be
      the best choice!

      American Democrat hopefuls sticking to pro-Israel policies

      By Nathan Guttman

      Haaretz
      23 January 2004

      http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/386103.html

      WASHINGTON - Surprising results this week in the Iowa primary have
      caused the American Jewish community, and supporters of Israel in
      the United States, to take a closer look at Democratic candidates
      who have up to now been trailing the pack.

      In past months, the Jewish community was preoccupied with then
      front-runner Howard Dean. It monitored closely what appeared to be
      worrisome comments made by Dean, particularly his reference to an
      "evenhanded approach" toward the Middle East conflict. Though the
      obsession with Dean obscured the other candidates, the other
      Democratic Party hopefuls did not forget the Jewish community.

      On Wednesday, Wesley Clark's staff organized a nationwide event
      aimed at his Jewish supporters. In dozens of cities around the
      country, rallies were held for Clark, and the retired general
      greeted his supporters in conference calls. Clark tried to allay
      Jewish voters' fears, most of them related to Israel. "I believe we
      should take risks for peace, and we will reach peace in the Middle
      East," Clark declared. He declined, however, to detail a peace plan.
      He did take a hard line toward the Arab countries. "Years ago, I saw
      that the Palestinians are teaching hate in classrooms, and I am also
      worried about the Saudis preaching hate. When I am president, I will
      take action against that," he stated.

      Clark struck a similar chord in his comments on Iran. He anticipated
      democratic reform in Tehran: "I am convinced that if we can get
      Western culture and Western ideas that are suitable for the younger
      generation [there], we will see a change in this society," he said.
      Clark indicated also that Syria should undertake reforms.

      While he is careful not to side with the conservatives in the Bush
      administration who evince full or partial support for the military
      option vis-a-vis Damascus, Clark recommended playing tough with the
      Syrians. U.S. policy toward Damascus, he declared, should aim at
      "breaking the grip of the extremists surrounding Bashar Assad. We
      want to see there an evolution that will end the threat on Israel
      and will enable them to reach a peace agreement with Israel, without
      Israel having to give assets needed for its security."

      As far as American Jews are concerned, the jury is still out on the
      Democratic Party's new star, John Kerry. An experienced politician
      with 18 years on the Senate's Foreign Relations Committee under his
      belt, he has a solid record of supporting Israel. American Jewish
      sources in Washington indicated that Kerry's comments in
      off-the-record talks recall the approach adopted by the Clinton
      administration: unqualified support for Israel, yet also insistence
      that a resolution to the conflict with the Palestinians depends upon
      Israeli concessions in the territories.

      A few days after the Geneva Accord signing ceremony, Kerry praised
      the draft peace proposal, ignoring the reservations of the Sharon
      government. He has also proposed sending a special envoy to the
      Middle East - and one of the names he has mentioned in this
      connection is that of former Secretary of State James Baker.

      In some American Jewish eyes, Baker is viewed has having been
      instrumental in determining foreign policy that brought U.S.-Israel
      relations to a low point.

      The bottom line, says one seasoned political observer in Washington,
      is that Israel has nothing to fear from Kerry, Clark or other
      Democratic hopefuls. All of the candidates endorse their party's
      supportive stance toward Israel, and the candidates are surrounded
      by staff workers who are long-standing friends of Israel.
