Bush, McCain & Obama To Visit Bohemian Grove?



Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet
Friday, July 11, 2008

Outgoing President George W. Bush and both of his presumptive replacements John McCain and Barack Obama are rumored to be in attendance at this year’s Bohemian Grove gathering, an annual get-together of the global elite staged inside a sprawling forest encampment which kicks off tonight and runs until July 27.

Bohemian Grove is a 136-year-old all-male encampment complete with restaurants, bars, stages and lodges, which caters to around 2,000 members of the global elite along with Californian hoi polloi on a yearly basis in July. The camp is set within a 2,700 acre secluded forest replete with giant redwood trees.

Former attendees include Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon, who both went on to become President, as well as regulars like Henry Kissinger, Alan Greenspan, David Rockefeller, Colin Powell, as well as George W. Bush and his father.

In 2000 radio host and film maker Alex Jones infiltrated the gathering and caught exclusive video footage of a bizarre mock human sacrifice ritual, known as “the cremation of care”, under a 40 foot stone owl that the members refer to as Molech.

I like how the implication here is that there are like five books that we should read and then we'd be all good and can go back to football and video games.

Until They Bring The Streetcars Back. There are a few other books that he wrote from the different people in the original story. I read them all and I thought they were good as well.

I'm impressed mock tried to hijack this and everyone ignored him. Maybe soon he'll just go away.

Hey nostrodamus was brilliant, if you like that one try Life After God. It's my favorite book of all time.

The Bible. It'll take a year, but it's well worth it. Amazing how many stories and sayings you already know are in there, the sayings especially, but didn't realize it. (I tried to specifically leave out any reference to religion here since we have a few who like to start Holy Wars around here)

I'm sure everyone's read it, but it's worth mentioning again:

A Few Seconds of Panic by Stefan Fatsis. Great read. I couldn't put it down, and I'm actually about to start reading it again.

God Save the Fan by Will Leitch is a pretty good dismantling of ESPN and some of the questionable practices of tWWL.

I'm currently working on A Course Called Ireland by Tom Coyne. Golf book. Life book. Mixed together. Good read.

This stuff might be flavor-of-the-month fare for you guys, but they're all good reads and I would recommend each one.

Is it by the same author? I will try and find a copy of it.

Has anyone read The Glass Castle? I thought it was a pretty good book. A Million Little Pieces was a good read as well, even if it wasn't completely true.

Yes! I love Greene. Makes the concepts comprehensible without it feeling too dumbed down. He also does a great job of pausing occasionally to bring home the point of just how damn cool some that stuff really is.

Tai-Pan is also a great Clavell book.

Yes, it is an excellent book. The series drops off a little after that, but they are all very readable.

The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels (seriously it's interesting to read a about a radical process of thought).

The Darth Bane trilogy by Drew Karpyshyn (if you like BioWare games you'll like this).
