The Original 1 Percent

March 14, 2012

by  Leilani Clark   source: The Bohemian    Mar 14, 2012

For over 30 years, West County activist Mary Moore and the Bohemian Grove Action Network protested outside the Bohemian Grove as the elite of the world’s financial, government, corporate and military systems paraded in for “lakeside chats,” morning gin fizzes, drag performances, infamous “Cremation of Care” ceremonies and the chummy camaraderie of being comfortably in the 1 percent

But the actions lost numbers when Moore broadened her energies to other causes, such as Palestinian issues and police brutality. In 2010, Nor-Cal Truth activist Brian Romanoff took up the reins; oftentimes working alone, he handed out pamphlets on 9-11 to the passing elite. Last year’s encampment drew a group of new, anonymous protesters with flyers warning of satanic “bohemians” and child sacrifice. Moore distanced herself from that group, remarking that she would be “staying home that weekend.”


“When Occupy started last year, I got several emails from around the country asking if we were planning something for July,” Moore says via email. “I answered then that it was a bit early, but that did start the conversation. We’d be brain-dead not to use the momentum that Occupy has created, and wish we’d come up with the concept of the 1 percent 30 years ago, as it describes perfectly what the Bohemian Club represents.”

Bohemian Grove Mystery Broken Drown

July 18, 2011

source: Russia Today   July 18, 2011

It’s nestled among the Redwoods in the woods of California. 2,700 acres of pristine land broken down into dozens of camps

And for two weeks every July since the 1880s, they have been filled with some of the most wealthy and powerful men in the world.

Many of them arrive on their corporate jets at the nearby Sonoma County Airport. Others arrive in fancy cars which fill the on-site parking lot. At its height, there is said to have been more than 2,000 men who attended and, as you can imagine, they are well protected by a trove of police. Access is by invitation only, and most pay more than $15,000 to attend.

For more than 35 years, protestors have stood at the entrance gates.

“Our concern is not what’s going on inside the Grove, but what’s happening outside the Grove with the people that are in here,” Brian Romanoff, a picketer, tells The History Channel.

Breaking: Exclusive Interview With Mark Walter Evans; First to Publish Parallel of “Moloch” and the “Owl Shrine” at Bohemian Grove

July 17, 2011

Brian Romanoff    The Bohemian Grove Blog    July 17, 2011

At the gate of the Bohemian Grove on Saturday, July 16, we met a certain fellow, by  the name of Mark Walter Evans. As we were talking, it developed that he was the author of the original article – back in 1993 – that drew an analogy between the Owl of Bohemia, and the  archaic worship of the Canaanite idol Moloch, in the Levant. When we asked Mark if he was willing to be interviewed, he said “Yes!” and jumped at the opportunity to express his dissatisfaction with the direction that the ideological thread he started has taken.

Mark Walter Evans’ article entitled “Bigwigs Perpetuate Canaanite Cult“, drew a parallel between the two all the way back in 1993.

“Moloch” has become synonymous with the Bohemian Grove and too many ‘activists’ on the internet community. For 2,300 people on the planet, namely the members of the Bohemian Grove, the 40 foot-ish foot owl is simply known as the “Shrine” or the “Owl of Bohemia.”

Here for your study, before his startling revelations to The Bohemian Grove Blog are released on video, is an excerpt from his 1993 article:

But perhaps the most jarring contrast of all, is the contradiction between the pious hand-over-heart singing of the Star Spangled Banner (ritual for public consumption), that occurs at Party conventions, and the secret ritual that is the real “turn on” for the ruling class habitues of the Grove. For, when the rich and powerful “gather at the river,” it is not to pray, and sign psalms and hymns.

However, let it not be said that these men have no religion.

Every July, the Summer encampment at Bohemian Grove is opened with a remarkable commencement ceremony. I quote from a January 1981 article by William Domhoff * in The Progressive:

“…A ceremony called the Cremation of Care, which takes place at the base of a forty-foot [Ferro-cement] Owl… made more resplendent by the mottled forest mosses that cover much of it.

Why Have I Spoken Against Certain Bohemian Grove Protestors This Year?

July 15, 2011

Brian Romanoff     The Bohemian Grove Blog    July 15, 2011

I am happy people are at the Bohemian Grove to protest. But not all of them.

I have pissed some folks off lately (read the thread). For good reason: I have offended their friends and been blunt with my analysis as much as possible.

(Some of) The Grove Protestors will Ruin Your Grove Protest

July 14, 2011

FINAL UPDATE: Why Have I Spoken Against Certain Bohemian Grove Protestors This Year?

UPDATE 2# (7/15/11): I have changed the title of this post. The title used to also have the sentence, “Anonymous Video Likely a Fake.” Not so. The Anonymous video was produced by well-intentioned persons in the US, who would like more attention on the Bohemian Grove. That probably seems pretty apparent to many of you though, but to Mary Moore and myself, it was suspicious in timing and presentation.

Gearing up at the Bohemian Grove

San Francisco Giants’ boss Bill Neukom and Vaughn Walker, the retired federal judge who threw out Proposition 8, will be among the featured speakers at the Bohemian Grove encampment of rich and powerful men beginning Friday in Monte Rio.

Also scheduled to present Lakeside Talks during the 17-day Bohemian Grove retreat are Daniel Yergin, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author and energy expert; Willie Smits, a conservationist and defender of Borneo’s orangutans; and former Secretaries of State George Shultz and James Baker, according to a source.

The talks, presented beside a small lake ringed by towering redwoods, are a daily highlight of the summer encampment held by the San Francisco-based Bohemian Club and dating back to 1878.

As Bohemians Gather, so Does Lunatic Fringe of Activist World

July 10, 2011

If you don’t know, I hate hearing about “sacrifices”, “Molech”, or “Satan worship” in context to the Bohemian Grove. So yes – I do agree with this article on premise.

source: Press Democrat   July 10, 2011

Veteran Sonoma County peace/justice activist Mary Moore has stood at the gate of the Bohemian Grove near Monte Rio many times to hoot at the well-connected men driving in.

But you can believe that Mary, founder decades ago of the Bohemian Grove Action Network, will have nothing to do with the group that may protest and picnic at the gate as the Bohemians’ Midsummer Encampment kicks off this weekend.

Mary has her issues with the men of the Grove, but the accusations made in fliers calling for people to confront them on Saturday and Sunday, the 16th and 17th, are way too much for her.

This is stuff from beyond the fringe. The flier, found also at, exhumes and reconstitutes crazed allegations that the “satanic” Bohemians “conduct a ceremonial sacrifice of children where they will be symbolically set on fire.”
