Your Basic Skull And Bones – Kris Millegan Speaks Out (excerpt)
by Mary W Maxwell, PhD, LLB
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 St West.
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 invited in.
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? [Full rense.com column here.]
