- This Friday, October 21, 2011, my publisher Kris Millegan
(TrineDay Press) is giving a talk at a shop in Toronto that sports the
dizzle-dazzle name, "Conspiracy Culture Shop." It's at 1696 Queen
- From their ad, it seems that they entertain a certain
amount of nonsense there. Extraterrestrial, woo-oo kind of stuff.
However, the topic of the Yale fraternity known as Skull and Bones is
really just plain old business-elite tedium.
- I will demonstrate that below by quoting at length from
one of their "publications," namely the 1922 book "Philip
Dru, Administrator". I mean you can't get much less esoteric than
the word 'administrator,' can you?
- Millegan learned about Skull and Bones from Antony Sutton,
a now-deceased whistleblower and from Charlotte Iserbyt, a still-alive
whistleblower whose Dad was a Bonesman. Sutton was a conservative scholar
(so is Iserbyt, so am I), who was a bit disgusted by the fact that the
US was secretly financing the USSR.
- Sutton found a friend in Kris Millegan, son of a CIA
man who could distinguish patriotism from moonshine. In order to be sure
the Sutton books got published, Kris Millegan founded a press, TrineDay.
At the moment the said publisher is in Toronto to interview his newest
author, Judyth Vary Baker, the girlfriend of Lee Oswald.
- Sutton persuaded Millegan that Skull and Bones is possibly
the inner sanctum of World Government. This makes sense. "The Order,"
as the members call it (or The Russell Trust, as it is legally named),
came to the US from Germany by way of Daniel Coit Gilman in 1837. (Ever
been to Gilman Hall at Johns Hopkins?) Fifteen Yale seniors per year are
- Now, as promised, here is an excerpt from the book that
was published anonymously in 1922. It managed to become a best-seller,
so it must have had great promotion, even before Madison Ave was invented!
Later, it was said to have been penned by Colonel Edward House, President
Woodrow Wilson's handler. Note: the designation 'colonel' had no basis.
- It was a novel endorsing a socialist utopia that would
be founded in America, albeit forcibly, by the goodhearted Mr. Philip Dru
(Obamacare, anyone?). Dru would emerge from the citizenry to oppose the
awful Selwyn who was corrupting the federal government.
- If Antony Sutton got it right, and I think he did, the
book gives details of how Selwyn did the corrupting FOR THE PURPOSE OF
providing a teaching tool for those in the provinces! Sort of a handbook
for the Dems, Repubs, Tea Party, anybody. Sutton thinks this Dru book
"encodes the Order of Skull and Bones." Read on:
- Philip Dru, Administrator (1922) by 'Col.' E.
Mandell House (excerpt)
- HOW SELWYN DID IT
- Masterful and arrogant wealth, created largely by Government
protection of its profits had sought to corrupt [both parties] and to that
end had insinuated itself into the primaries, [so] no candidates might
be nominated whose views were not in accord with theirs.
- [Selwyn solicited] a thousand multi-millionaires, each
one contributing ten thousand dollars. He forged a subtle chain with which
to hold in subjection the natural impulses of the people There was no
man in either of the great political parties that was big enough to cope
with him or to unmask his methods.
- His first move was to confer with John Thor, the high
priest of finance, and unfold his plan to him, explaining how essential
was secrecy. Thor's influence throughout commercial America was absolute
[thanks to] the capital he could control through the banks, trust companies
and industrial organizations, which he dominated.
- Thor was to send for each of the thousand and compliment
him by telling him that there was a matter, appertaining to the general
welfare of the business fraternity Selwyn then transferred these amounts
to the private bank of his son-in-law [to be paymaster].
- Not only did Selwyn plan to win the Presidency [for his
man Rockland], but he also planned to bring under his control both the
Senate and the Supreme Court. He selected one man in each of thirty of
the States, some of them belonging to his party and some to the opposition,
whom he intended to have run for the Senate.
- Honest officials who were in the way were removed by
offering them places vastly more remunerative He began by eliminating
all states he knew the opposition party would certainly carry. He also
ignored the states where his side was sure to win
- Drunk with power and the adulation of sycophants, once
or twice Rockland asserted himself, and acted upon important matters without
having first conferred with Selwyn. But, after he had been bitterly assailed
by Selwyn's papers and by his senators, he made no further attempts at
independence. He felt that he was utterly helpless in that strong man's
hands, and so, indeed, he was.

- Ho hum. That is Conspiracy in high gear. Who needs
Area 51 when you can control smart Americans by plain, ordinary corruption?
- As is well known, Edward Mandell House, the non-colonel,
actually lived in the White House to help 'guide' give President Wilson,
in the years 1913-1921. (Don't forget, Wilson had a stroke while in office,
after which it was claimed that his wife Edith, 1872-1961, was de facto
- Sutton, however, notes that the non-colonel was even
closer to the previous President, the Republican William Howard Taft, son
of Alphonso Taft who co-founded The Order of Skull and Bones. Taft Senior
had held the positions of US Attorney General and Secretary of War. (We
did not name it the Department of 'Defense,' can you imagine, until 1947.)
Senior was also ambassador to Austria-Hungary, and then to Russia.
- Junior (1857-1930) became Solicitor General of the US
at age 32 (we need more of that, in my opinion nowadays), and was also
a Secretary of War. Glancing at other posts William Howard Taft held, we
see that Antony Sutton was surely onto something. These include, in chronological
order, Governor of the Philippines (yep, 'our Philippines'), acting Secretary
of State (acting Hilary, so to speak), and President of the US.
- He got ousted from the White House in the election of
1912, probably under a Gentleman's Agreement to make room for Wilson. (Remember,
the Republican electorate got fooled by the fact that its former president,
Teddy Roosevelt, entered the 1912 race as a third party candidate in the
Bull Moose Party, and so a Dem won.)
- As ex-prexy, Taft was not idle. He became, in due course,
Chief Justice of the US, ambassador to Russia (tum de tum tum) and finally,
promoter of a league for what else but World Peace.
- Hope I haven't stolen any thunder form Kris Millegan's
Skull and Bones talk this Friday at 7.30 pm at Conspiracy Culture. I am
pretty sure he is going to be more contemporary in his presentation. Maybe
he knows about the females who, only recently, have been allowed to join
