29. My story was more about the history of the group
Edited on Sat Jun-04-05 01:53 PM by DrDebug
It doesn't explain everything and indeed a membership like Kerry doesn't necessarily mean that a person is truly evil. ( Remember Gorbachov was a 33rd degree mason as well ), but Kerry's membership is probably linked to his family history as well. And it is something which is worrying in case of Kerry, because you can't fully trust him. I would prefer a candidate who isn't involved in highly secret clubs which has many members which are very tainted.

Skull and Bones was established by the Russells and they were the family which made fortunes during the Opium trade and wanted people who felt the same way about making money. They wanted a secret group of immensely powerful families to continue activities like drug smuggling to further enhance their power. Most of the members did have a banking or drug history, but in deed not all.

Prescott wasn't extremely wealthy, but he was very smart (and was of the important Scottish royalty* bloodline which is a must in masonic orders for some weird reason) and became a senator as well. It stands to reason that Prescott was selected because of his superb qualities and because he was probably corruptable as well.

It wasn't until he linked with George Herbert Walker that he got his powerful connections and companies which made him wealthy. And then George H.W. got the best of both worlds and we know what that has caused. There's hardly a major scandal which doesn't have a H.W. line somewhere even though it can hardly ever be proven.

I don't think Thyssen invented it. Banks already played a vital role in money laundring during the Opium wars - I suggest you google for it, because I don't have a link handy. I don't know Thyssen's family history, but it was probably influential as well, because he had a bank, a shipping company etc. They were loaded before he became involved with Hitler.

*I haven't figured it out. But they are ALL related to Robert de Ros which is descend of King William I of Scotland. Robert de Ros was a banker as well. One of the biggest bankers of his time and he was the first person to start a covert intelligence organisation (the first CIA of the world indeed!)
