Regular Dreamland guest Jim Marrs says that we only think we vote for our leaders?the world is really run by a secret international cabal. While we don’t like to believe this at election time, the fact that the leading Presidential candidates all belong to the same secret society makes one wonder if it’s true.

Charles Laurence reports in The Telegraph that President Bush and John Kerry both belonged to Skull and Bones at Yale University, which has been called America’s most elite and elusive secret society. Bush’s father, George Bush, was a member as well.

Laurence quotes Alexandra Robbins, a Yale graduate and author of a book on the Skull & Bones, as saying, “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.”

Robbins describes the headquarters of the “Bonesmen” as looking like a Greco-Egyptian temple. The organization has relics that include Hitler’s silver collection and the skull of the Indian chief Geronimo. Initiation rites include mud-wrestling and telling the details about your sexual history while lying naked in a coffin.
