TX -- Last July, documentary filmmaker Alex Jones
infiltrated Bohemian Grove, becoming the first person to capture the bizarre
occult activities of the all-male elite club membership on videotape. This
footage recently aired in England, Ireland and Scotland on UK Channel Four as
Part Three of a four-part special: The Secret Rulers of the World.
Alex Jones was
inside the 2,700 acre elite compound for over five hours, and states, "Thank God

trouble believing what I witnessed with my own two eyes. It was actually that
For over 128
years, world leaders have traveled to Sonoma County California in the month of
July. Almost immediately, bizarre rumors began to circulate in the local press
that something dark and occult was going on. The rumors entailed dark stories of
men in black and red robes and a giant 40-foot stone owl, to which something, or
someone was being sacrificed.
Alex Jones, being
a radio talk-show host had heard the rumors many times, so he decided to look
into it and did some research. To his surprise, mainstream media articles from
Parade Magazine, the Associated Press, Reuters, the Sacramento Bee, and the
Washington Times confirmed the incredible. World leaders were traveling yearly
to the rural redwood-covered hills of Northern California and photos actually
existed of the giant stone owl and the men in black and red robes.
"I was angered,"
Jones said, "that in over 50 years there had been only a handful of news stories
written on Bohemian Grove, and that these stories calmly reported on the rumors
and engaged in a whitewash, thus hiding a giant story in plain view."

from Austin, Texas to San Francisco, Jones and the other members of his team,
Violet Nichols and Mike Hanson, met up with the British filmmakers and began a
three-day investigation before attempting to enter the Grove.
On July 15, 2000,
Alex Jones and Mike Hanson, equipped with two hidden video cameras and disguised
as members of the Bohemian Club successfully infiltrated the elite cult
One of the most
commonly asked questions is: How did they get in?
Following is a
transcript of a taped interview with Alex Jones, who describes his infiltration
of the super-secret elitist camp and what he witnessed inside:
Club lies within a range of large hills and cliffs with 300-400 ft. drops. The
club itself consists of large log cabin-style homes built into the gorge walls.
There is only one
entrance on the north side of the compound, which is a paved road, appropriately
named "Bohemian Avenue."
A low barbed-wire
fence surrounds the entire perimeter of the club, but the fence doesn’t matter
because there is only one place where the hills come together, leaving an
opening traversable by foot or car. Simply stated, the Bohemian Grove is a
dropped off near the Bohemian Club, we inserted ourselves into the woods about
from the main entrance. After going over the barbed wire fence, we
found ourselves in what can only be described as a moat. The entire area along
the road to the foot of the cliff walls had been dug out and flooded.
We were able to
make our way across the expansive swamp by jumping from broken tree limbs and
After climbing up
a steep embankment, pulling our way up by gripping on tree roots, we found
ourselves in a large parking lot, with hundreds of cars. We saw several dozen
Bohemian Club employees/servants getting out of the vehicles, which were
everything from Mercedes-Benz to Ford Tempos.
At about 100
yards through the trees, we saw a much larger parking lot, filled with more
late-model, luxury-style cars. Obviously, this was the parking area of the
actual 2,000 members of the Bohemian Club.
When you come in
on the main road, the moat, the swamp and the embankment are off to the right
the west) just 50 yards of so. By going across the swamp or moat, we made our
way past the first two checkpoints, which consisted of a small guard shack on
the left-hand side of the road and another 50 yards down the road another guard
shack on the right-hand side of the road.
It’s a good thing
that we decided to sneak around the first two checkpoints, by entering through
the Bohemian Grove employee parking lot, because the real checkpoints lie deeper
inside the Grove. There was a checkpoint in the middle of the road (a large
guard shack with several dozen security people) and then guard shacks on the
left and right sides of the road, which were kind of like the German-style
checkpoints you see in old war films.
I told Mike I
thought it would be a good idea if we tried to get on one of the large trucks
(the flat-back open trucks that had padded seats that were actually picking up
members of the Bohemian Club as well as the employees). So, we went ahead and
walked through the woods to the Bohemian Club member parking area and waited for
one of the large trucks to pull up, at which time myself and Mike Hanson climbed
onto the back with two older gentlemen.
Mike and myself
made small-talk conversation as we got onto the black-top road and drove deeper
into the Grove, now approaching these larger checkpoints. In the two or three
minutes that we were on board the truck, we caught an interesting conversation
on tape, as two of the members discussed the prices of their ceremonial robes
(all of that is in my video, Dark Secrets: Inside Bohemian Grove).
Our first close
call happened as we neared the main checkpoint. The truck actually stopped, at
which time an older, gray-haired man made eye contact with the driver of the
truck and walked around the back of the truck to stare myself and Mike Hanson
right in the eye. Obviously, he was afraid that we might be guests of the two
older gentlemen we were riding in with in the truck (as Bohemian Club members
are allowed to bring guests) so he didn’t ask us who we were or what we were
doing. The guards went ahead and waved us on with a look of suspicion.
Then we were
actually inside the Bohemian Grove. We had heard all of the bizarre rumors and
were about to find out what was really going on inside. The mystery was getting
closer to being solved.
The truck drove
in for several more minutes and stopped at which time we off-loaded. I told Mike
that I wanted to get to cover. It took us about 45 minutes to an hour to walk
all the way through to the bottom of the gorge, at which point the road actually
ended and a cars could no longer drive on it, as it turned into a
concrete-paved, blacktop foot-path.
We reached the
end of the gorge, which is an observation deck at the top of a 300-foot cliff
the Russian River and the small town of Monte Rio on the other side.
It was my plan to have the least amount of contact with the Bohemian Club
members and staff as I could and to wait until nightfall to attempt to get out
our hidden cameras and to catch the Cremation of Care ceremony on tape.
At this point, I
should digress and go back and say that as we were walking into the Grove we
actually came within about ten yards of the 40 foot stone owl that sits to the
north side of the small lake. We were only about seven yards away from the black
altar that sits at the base of the owl.
So, already at
this point we had proven that rumor true: yes there is a giant stone owl – yes
there is an
As we were walking deeper into the grove, past the lake, we even saw little
metal crosses sticking up from the water’s edge. We’ll get to those little metal
So, now we had
been there about an hour at the observation deck. There was no one around. All
of the sudden, there was an older gentleman, about 67-70 years old, wearing a
Sonoma County Sheriff’s Department uniform coming up the path . We didn’t even
see him coming. I believe he was the Sheriff, and he started speaking to us in
some kind of code.
He looked at
directly at me and said, "Were you here in 1913? Are you one of the old ones?"
Now obviously, I
was 27 years old and the man knew I wasn’t around in 1913 and that I wasn’t one
of the old ones. Knowing that he was testing me, I just calmly said, "Yeah, I’m
with the Hillbillies."
To explain that,
there are about 95 different clubs within the Bohemian Club. All the different
club houses and log cabin-style mansions that are built into the cliffs have
different names and different memberships. The most elite club, according to
press reports is Mandaley, with Henry Kissinger and Paul Volcker, former Federal
Reserve Chairman and other New World Order bosses.
Camp is the camp that the Bushes are members of, along with many other notables
in American industry, banking, media and government. At that point he smiled and
said, "Well, enjoy the day." He then turned around and walked off.
After he left I
said to Mike, "Look, we’ve got to get to a new position and hide ourselves in
the woods." So we traveled back into the gorge, off the cliffside and the
observation deck. About half-way into the gorge, we noticed that two men in dark
suits and sunglasses were following us. I decided to slow down.
The two men ,who
were obviously private security, Secret Service or somebody’s private body
guards, walked up to us and asked us our names. I gave them my fake name and
Mike gave them his fake name, and we told them that we were members of the
They said, "take
it easy, don’t stress yourselves out and enjoy yourselves," which was a theme
that came up more later. At this point, we had been confronted twice and were
now being followed. I told Mike that we had to get into a heavily populated area
where a lot of the Grove members were congregating.
So we went into
several of the clubs and almost had our identities blown. We went in and had a
few drinks, because everyone was drinking copiously and they were offering us
wine in some of the clubhouses. We then got back on the road and into a large
outdoor feasting area, where hundreds of tables were being set from some party
I told Mike we
should go up the steep road into the hills where some of the larger structures
were located. It took us about 20 minutes to walk up the road into the only
hills that were accessible by foot. At that point some of the employees began to
ask us why weren’t riding the truck up. We told them that we wanted exercise, at
which point they started acting pretty suspicious.
We noticed that
high up in the hills many of the large log cabin structures were deserted, with
many large outside decks. So we went into the Web Camp and just made ourselves
comfortable. (The camps have different names like Lost Boys, Doom, Dragon etc.)
We simply sat out the next hour, reloaded our hidden cameras and got them back
By then, the
shadows were getting really long and it was just a few minutes until dusk. We
started to hear bizarre chanting and singing coming from down below us in the
gorge. So we traveled back into the gorge. On our way back down, we saw
thousands of men chanting and singing drunkenly beneath the giant redwoods.
It was like
something out of a fantasy novel. I expected to see a dragon come hopping by any
moment. There were huge skulls hanging down from the floodlights, satanic-styled
owls with glowing eyes, (a lot of trappings of death) that we could now see in
the twilight illuminated by the large floodlights.
revelers were beginning to break up and to travel down paths towards the lake.
We decided to go ahead and mix in with them and go where they were going. They
were going towards the east side of the bank about 100 yards across the north
tip of the lake where the idol and altar stood.
As we were
walking around the lake, the only black man we saw, a very large man, saw myself
and Mike Hanson walking very quickly compared to other members in the crowd (we
wanted to get a good place on the east side of the bank to watch the Cremation
of Care ritual – all rumors I had heard were now coming true).
He said, "trouble
yourselves not! Take it easy! The cares of the world are off your shoulders!
You’re not supposed to walk that fast." He then gave us two full-color programs.
On the cover of the program, they show Moloch, the big owl, with a burning body
enflamed beneath it (the program can be viewed at infowars.com). Also a little
demon, with the initials PJ was sweeping up someone’s ashes on the lower
left-hand corner of the program (which is also on my film, Dark Secrets: Inside
Thousands of the
men began to gather on the eastern bank, private servants (as opposed to the
Bohemian Grove employees, who all wear red shirts and who weren’t allowed to be
present for the ritual) began to put out chairs for their elderly employers.
The sun had now
sunk behind the hill. It was completely dark and you couldn’t even see the other
side of the water. There were bats flying around and a lot of natural fog
building on the surface of the water (there is a lot of fog in Northern
I mean, if Count
Dracula lived in North America, he would like in Sonoma County. This was spooky
stuff. The hair on the back of my neck was beginning to stand up at this point.
Then, out of the
woods, all of the sudden came thirty priests in black robes, their faces painted
up like death, with a man dressed like the Grim Reaper pulling a wagon with a
bound body. Then we noticed something that we had seen during the day. Large
black canopies had been unfurled out of the trees on the western side of the
bank (we’re on the eastern side – only about 70 yards away at that point) and
they unfurled those, and the wagon pulled behind it.
The men then
began to yell out, "burn him again! He’s going to get what he deserves!
Now, I must
digress and say that the reason I was able to see the priest in the black robes,
the priest painted-up like death, and the bound body on the back of the wagon,
was because they were all carrying torches. The place was pretty illuminated by
the torches being carried by the thirty priests in front and the thirty priests
behind the wagon.
Probably out of
the entire ritual that I witnessed, the most important aspect of the ceremony
was what happened first. The wagon went behind these big black sheets hanging
out of the trees, down to the ground, obscuring the view, and for about 10
minutes nothing happened.
It was quiet
except for the hateful shouts of the old men, who said things like, "Oh yeah!
Burn that bastard! Kill him! That’s what he deserves!" All we could hear was
them whispering and smacking their lips. This went on and on.
Now on the west
side of the bank, (we’re were on the east side, about 50-60 yards away) at the
front, about 100 yards away on the north side, is the idol, sitting in darkness.
No one was paying attention to that. Everyone was enraptured as they stared
across the water at whatever was happening behind those black curtains with that
Whether it was an
effigy or real, we do not know. (This is kind of like the Skull and Bones ritual
that the New York Observer caught on tape. They claim that the video shows them
slitting the throats of ceremonial effigies.) Is all of this in effigy? We don’t
We were all
focused at what was going on across the pond. Suddenly the owl was lit up by
some flood lights and out ran a hundred priests or so in black, red and green
robes. Most of them were in black, some in red and a couple in silver or green
Then, out came
the high priest, who went through all his incantations about the dead (who is
dead at the
Grove in the past, may their spirits be conjured and brought back
there by the "great owl"). He praised the owl for about twenty minutes and he
talked about "goodly Tyre and Babylon."
(I know how
bizarre this all sounds, just remember that we have all of this on tape in my
video, Dark Secrets: Inside Bohemian Grove, which has aired nationally in the
United Kingdom, and might air here in the United States, unless it is
So, the priest
talked about "goodly Tyre and Babylon." Well,, there is only one "great owl" of
Babylon and "goodly" Tyre. If you read your Bible, or any historical document of
the time, they were burning children in the Babylonian and Caananite kingdoms
before the owl-god Moloch.
we had initially been misdirected from the owl by the activities behind the
curtains across the bank, then we were paying attention to the owl and the
priests on the island ) back on the west bank, there was an old-fashioned
river-style boat, with that grim reaper character who had been driving the
wagon, and he was poling himself across the water with the bound body up on the
He brought the
bound body to the high priest who was waiting for it at the foot of the owl, at
the bottom of large circular steps on which the owl sits. Then, in very macabre
fashion, the two black-clad priests rubbed and caressed the sacrificial body and
brought it before the owl.
The body begged
for its life, over a speaker system. They refused it mercy. They took it up onto
the altar. The "great owl" told them to burn the body (which they called "dull
care,")which looks like a human wrapped up in black cloth. Right above the altar
there was a large stone lamp that was burning that they call the "eternal
flame." The high priest took an unlit torch and lit his torch with this flame.
The body again
begged for mercy. The high priest then walked down (with some difficulty,
because this high priest was so old, he could hardly even walk), and lit the
pyre on fire. He began to say that he would read the signs in the remains, a
deep occult tradition. This is not the Hollywood devil with red pajamas – this
is the real deal, Babylon mystery religion-style.
continued to scream in pain. Suddenly, all of those little metal crosses that we
had seen along the bank during the day burst into flame. So, I was there
witnessing something right out of the medieval painter Hieronymus Bosch’s
Visions of Hell: burning metal crosses, priests in red and black robes with
the high priest in a silver robe with a red cape, a burning body screaming in
pain, a giant stone great-horned owl, world leaders, bankers, media and the head
of academia engaged in these activities. It was total insanity.

So the ritual
ended and all the old men started breaking up and going back to the big hall in
the giant redwoods. Myself and Mike Hanson high-tailed it out of there, walking
at a brisk pace. We encountered no resistance when we left. We walked right by
guards and were out on the main road, Bohemian Avenue.
It is a lot
easier to get out of the Grove than it is to get in, because a lot of these
world leaders that you read about in the news leave the Grove to go into the
small town Monte Rio. They go into the bars for prostitutes that are flown in
from around the world to service them.
Down the road the
British media was waiting to pick us up. They asked us, "Did you get it? Did you
One of the
producers, John Sergeant, said, "You’ve done it Alex! You’ve blown Bohemian
Grove right open!"
There is so much
more to this story that we don’t have time to get into. I decided to have this
interview transcribed and put on my website,
www.infowars.com. You really need to get the film, or at least look at the
photos or the stills of the video on infowars.com. Look at the program there
with the burning body and read the mainstream media news stories about the
history of the Grove, and you will realize how real all this is.
You need to do
this because a week after I got out of the Bohemian Grove, a group called the
Bohemian Grove Action Network, (a group that protests the Grove and is against
the corruption, elitism and how women are denied access, because the Grove is
all-male, of course), contacted different press outlets. I got ten unsolicited
media calls from the west coast media.
I gave them the
information, and we put the video clips on the web at infowars.com. They all
said that the infiltration and what our cameras caught on tape would be a huge
story. After that, we never heard from them again.
That shows the
power of the Grove. The only places we have been able to get information out
about Bohemian Grove has been on talk radio across the country, the Internet,
and now across the United Kingdom. Hopefully, they’ve broken the ice abroad by
broadcasting this over UK Channel Four and this true story of Bohemian Grove
will make it into the mainstream United States media.
This is big news.
I’ve done several hundred radio interviews about it and if any media outlet is
interested in interviewing me I am happy to do it to spread the news. For
everyone out there: just get the video Dark Secrets: Inside Bohemian Grove. I
encourage people to make copies for non-commercial, educational purposes to
wake-up people in your area.
This has really
been life changing for me, to go in there and witness this and then have some
people spin it, like, "oh, it’s just fraternity fun." These people were deadly
serious. This is a story that needs to be told and the establishment is trying
to suppress it. Please spread this information to every corner of the world.
