INFOWARS.COM EXCLUSIVE: BOHEMIAN GROVE
Activities at the Elite Bohemian Grove
in Northern California

Austin, TX --
Last July, documentary filmmaker
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

Alex Jones was inside the 2,700 acre
compound for over five hours, and states,
"Thank God I caught the whole thing on videotape because no one
would believe me if I hadnít. I have trouble believing what I
witnessed with my own two eyes. It was actually that bizarre."
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.
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
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."
about all the law enforcement and Secret Service protecting the
Grove’s mysteries every July, Jones took the challenge of Jon Ronson
of World of Wonder Productions to "blow Bohemian Grove wide-open
with his hidden cameras."
traveling 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.
15, 2000, Alex Jones and Mike Hanson, equipped with two hidden video
cameras and disguised as members of the Bohemian Club successfully
elite cult compound.
the most commonly asked questions is: How did they get in?
Following is a transcript of a taped interview with
Jones, who describes his infiltration of the super-secret elitist
camp and what he witnessed inside:
Bohemian 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.
is only one entrance on the north side of the compound, which is a
paved road, appropriately named "Bohemian Avenue."
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 walled city.
being dropped off near the Bohemian Club, we inserted ourselves into
the woods about 100 yards 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.
able to make our way across the expansive swamp by jumping from
broken tree limbs and other debris.
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.
you come in on the main road, the moat, the swamp and the embankment
are off to the right (off to 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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
reached the end of the gorge, which is an observation deck at the
top of a 300-foot cliff overlooking 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
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.
already at this point we had proven that rumor true: yes there is a
giant stone owl – yes there is an altar. 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
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.
looked at directly at me and said, "Were you here in 1913? Are you
one of the old ones?"
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
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.
Hillbilly 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.
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.
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 Hillbilly
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.
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 or
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.
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
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.
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.
feasting 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.
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).
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 Bohemian Grove).
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.
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 California).
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.
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.
then began to yell out, "burn him again! He’s going to get what he
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
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
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.
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 bound body.
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 know.
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 robes.
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."
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 suppressed.)
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
Suddenly, (again, 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
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.
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
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.
body 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
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.

"Did you get it? Did you get it?"

decided to have this interview transcribed and put on my website,

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.

cameras caught on tape would be a huge story. After that, we never
heard from them again.
