his book "America's Secret Establishment," Antony Sutton outlined the Order of
Skull and Bones' ability to establish vertical and horizontal "chains of
influence" that ensured the continuity of their conspiratorial
The Whitney-Stimson-Bundy links represent the "vertical chain".
W. C. Whitney ('63), who married Flora Payne (of the Standard Oil Payne
dynasty), was Secretary of the Navy. His attorney was a man named Elihu Root.
Root hired Henry Stimson ('88), out of law school. Stimson took over from Root
as Secretary of War in 1911, appointed by fellow Bonesman William Howard Taft.
Stimson later became Coolidge's Governor-General of the Philippine Islands,
Hoover's Secretary of State, and Secretary of War during the Roosevelt and
Hollister Bundy ('09) was Stimson's special
assistant and point man in the Pentagon for the Manhattan Project. His two sons,
also members of Skull and Bones, were William Bundy ('39) and McGeorge Bundy
('40) -- both very active in governmental and foundation affairs.
two brothers, from their positions in the CIA, the Department of Defense and the
State Department, and as Special Assistants to Presidents Kennedy and Johnson,
exercised significant impact on the flow of information and intelligence during
the Vietnam "War."
William Bundy went on to be editor of Foreign
Affairs, the influential quarterly of the Council on Foreign Affairs (CFR).
McGeorge became president of the Ford Foundation.
group of "Bonesmen" is the Harriman/Bush crowd. Averil Harriman ('13), "Elder
Statesman" of the Democratic Party, and his brother Roland Harriman ('17) were
very active members. In fact, four of Roland's fellow "Bonesmen" from the class
of 1917 were directors of Brown Brothers, Harriman, including Prescott Bush
('17), George Bush's dad.
Since the turn of the century, two investment
bank firms -- Guaranty Trust and Brown Brothers, Harriman -- were both dominated
by members of Skull and Bones. These two firms were heavily involved in the
financing of Communism and Hitler's regime.
Bonesman share an affinity
for the Hegellian ideas of the historical dialectic, which dictates the use of
controlled conflict -- thesis versus anti-thesis -- to create a pre-determined
synthesis. A synthesis of their making and design, where the state is absolute
and individuals are granted their freedoms based on their obedience to the state
-- a New World Order.
Funding and political maneuvering on the part of
"Bonesmen" and their allies helped the Bolsheviks prevail in Russia. In defiance
of federal laws, the cabal financed industries, established banks and developed
oil and mineral deposits in the fledgling U.S.S.R.
Harriman, as minister to Great Britain in charge of Lend-Lease for Britain and
Russia, was responsible for shipping entire factories into Russia. According to
some researchers, Harriman also oversaw the transfer of nuclear secrets,
plutonium and U. S. dollar printing plates to the U.S.S.R.
In 1932, the
Union Banking Corporation of New York City had enlisted four directors from the
('17) cell and two Nazi bankers associated with Fritz Thyssen, who had been
financing Hitler since 1924.

"President Franklin Roosevelt's Alien Property Custodian, Leo
T. Crowley, signed Vesting Order Number 248 [11/17/42] seizing the property of
Prescott Bush under the Trading with Enemy Act. The order, published in obscure
government record books and kept out of the news, Note #4 explained nothing
about the Nazis involved; only that the Union Banking Corporation was run for
the 'Thyssen family' of 'Germany and/or Hungary' -- 'nationals ... of a
designated enemy country.'
"By deciding that Prescott Bush and the other
directors of the Union Banking Corporation were legally 'front men for the
Nazis', the government avoided the more important historical issue: In what way
'were Hitler's Nazis themselves hired, armed, and instructed by' the New York
and London clique of which Prescott Bush was an executive manager?
"4. New York Times, December 16, 1944, ran a five-paragraph page 25
article on actions of the New York State Banking Department. Only the last
sentence refers to the Nazi bank, as follows: 'The Union Banking Corporation, 39
Broadway, New York, has received authority to change its principal place of
business to 120 Broadway.'
"The Times omitted the fact that the Union
Banking Corporation had been seized by the government for trading with the
enemy, and the fact that 120 Broadway was the address of the government's Alien
After the war, Prescott went on to become a U. S.
Senator from Connecticut and favorite golfing partner of President Eisenhower.
Prescott claims responsibility for getting Nixon into politics and takes
personal credit for bringing Dick on board as Ike's running mate in 1952.
