Anonymous targets secretive power brokers as part of “the biggest day” in the group’s history.
The hackers’ collective Anonymous may have obtained “literally explosive” information concerning Bohemian Grove, an annual gathering of power brokers from the US and Europe set to meet this week in California, which many see as a nefarious avenue through which elitists secretly manipulate world affairs.
Bohemian Grove is a privately owned 2,700 acre compound in Monte Rio, California surrounded by giant old-growth redwood trees. Once a year it plays host to a bizarre confab attended by some of the most powerful people in the world, including many US politicians and government officials, during which participants embroil themselves in a heady mixture of plutocratic plotting and occult pagan ritual ceremonies.
The Anonymous hacking group, which has already announced its intention to occupy the entrance to the Bohemian Grove compound as a protest against the group’s secrecy, may also be about to leak a whole treasure trove of information about the organization as part of what has been dubbed “the biggest day in Anonymous’s history”.
As part of a series of hacks conducted to protest the treatment of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, to whom Anonymous has attached itself, the collective says it is about to unleash “literally explosive” material on a number of organizations, including the London Metropolitan Police and other agencies connected to the UK judicial system.
The hacks are timed to coincide with Assange’s appeal hearing against extradition, which begins today.
According to a report in the Guardian, one of the targets of the hacks could well be the Bohemian Grove club.
Speculation centres around material claimed to have been obtained last week from contractors relating to security and secrecy of “former world leaders”, or plans to target a senior leaders’ retreat at Bohemian Grove, California.
Any such leak would be devastating for Bohemian Grove organizers, and could even disrupt activities at the encampment planned for the next fortnight.
Former Secretaries of State George Shultz and James Baker are set to give lakeside talks at the event this year, which begins Friday and runs for the next two weeks. But the details of what they say will not be covered by any media outlet, the meeting is secret and any uninvited guests are hastily dealt with by security guards and police.
Alex Jones made history in 2000 when he became the first journalist to capture on video the ‘cremation of care’ ceremony, where Grove members dressed in Eyes Wide Shut-style hooded capes make a mock child sacrifice to Moloch, the pagan owl god, represented as a 50 foot statue carved out of a hollowed redwood tree.
Although Matt Oggero, the club’s general manager, told the Press Democrat this week that Bohemian Grove is merely “a group of guys out in the woods having a good time,” Presidents Nixon and Reagan both attended the elitist get-together before they captured the Oval Office. George W. Bush was also introduced to Grove power brokers in 1995 by his father five years before becoming President.
Nixon infamously later described the encampment as the “most faggy goddamned thing you could ever imagine,” perhaps in reference to the fact that male prostitutes and porn stars are routinely transported to the facility to “serve the moguls,” as the New York Post reported in 2004. Few women are allowed to work at the camp and those that do are prevented from accessing many areas of the site. Young men of high school and college age make up most of the temporary employees hired by Grove organizers.
Although the establishment media routinely claims the event is little more than a holiday camp, in 1942 it was the setting for the birthplace of the Manhattan Project, which led to the creation of the atomic bomb, a story often retold by Grove members who are proud of the fact that the most important scientific development of the 20th century was conceived there.
