Hacked photos show former Secretary of State Gen. Colin Powell alongside two well known actors at the exclusive Bohemian Grove in northern California. Cryptome.org published the photos in a PDF file on April 9, we learned yesterday.
Two of the men in the photos appear to be George Kennedy — from Dallas and The Naked Gun — and Malcolm McDowell — from A Clockwork Orange and numerous television shows. Presumably, the photos were attachments in Powell’s AOL email account that was hacked by Guccifer, according to Russia Today.
Bohemian Grove is a “two-week, three-weekend encampment of some of the most powerful men in the world,” according to the Sonoma County Free Press’ (SCFP) website. The grove is split into “camps” and according to SCFP, Powell is a member of most exclusive one — Mandalay Camp. In one photo, Powell and the other men are sitting in chairs with Mandalay printed on the back.
Mary Moore, of SCFP, said today, ” … a lot of actors do go up there mostly as guests but some do belong. They’re considered ‘men of use’ as are the musicians and others in show biz.”
On May 21, 2012, Andrew Knight, a News Corporation director, emailed Powell about former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, “You will see in the attachment Tony’s response to George. Might you be able gently/firmly to point out to Tony that you rank the Bohemia Middle Weekend in your diary before allowing any other duties to get in the way?! Lack of exposure suggests that Tony has not yet got his priorities straight. I am going to suggest the same to Henry.”
We were not able to locate a copy of the attachment, “Tony_Blair_to_George_Schultz.pdf”. George Schultz has held several high-ranking positions in the U.S. government that included director of the Office of Management and Budget, secretary of the treasury, and secretary of state.
In July 1991, People magazine’s San Francisco bureau chief Dirk Mathison infiltrated the group, according to an article written by the journalism organization, Fairness & Accuracy In Reporting (FAIR):
He witnessed a speech — “Smart Weapons” — by former Navy Secretary John Lehman, who stated that the Pentagon estimates that 200,000 Iraqis were killed by the U.S. and its allies during the Gulf War. Other featured speakers included Defense Secretary Richard Cheney on “Major Defense Problems of the 21st Century”, former Health, Education and Welfare Secretary Joseph Califano on “America’s Health Revolution — Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Pays”, and former Attorney General Elliott Richardson on “Defining the New World Order”.
According to FAIR, some of the media elite that attended the grove included the president of CNN, the president of the Associated Press, and Jack Howard and Charles Scripps. There were two executives from Time-Warner in attendance as well. They recognized Mathison and kicked him out. They owned People magazine and would not publish his story.
In 2000, Infowar’s Alex Jones was able to get in and out without any major problems and secretly filmed a ceremony called “The Cremation of Care.” Jones said:
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.
Many U.S. presidents have been members of the grove. Richard Nixon was a member and said that it was the “most faggy god—n thing you could ever imagine.” Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and George W. Bush were members too. In 2007, when confronted by a heckler, Bill Clinton said he had never been to the grove and that it’s “where all those rich Republicans go up and stand naked against redwood trees.”
