Every spring since 1832 fifteen new faces are asked to join The Order of Skull and Bones. After Yale, many go on to the heights of power and shape our world. This is a story of how and why …
On this week’s edition of Real Politik we speak with Kris Millegan, publisher of TrineDay Books. Millegan began his book publishing enterprise in 2002 with an updated edition of Antony Sutton’s classic 1983 work, America’s Secret Establishment: An Introduction to the Order of Skull and Bones. Three weeks after the book’s reappearance Sutton passed on.-JFT
“My senior year, I joined Skull and Bones, a secret society, so secret I can’t say anything more.”-George W. Bush, adjudicated 43rd President of the United States
The public owes Antony Sutton a debt of gratitude for this book. It is an essential primer for tracking the families, bloodlines, and business entanglements of America’s secret establishment. If one does not have Sutton’s information, they will never truly understand American history or foreign policy.-Jim Marrs, journalist and best-selling author.
Author’s Preface: America’s Secret Establishment
After 16 books and 25 years in basic research I thought I’d heard it all … the world was a confused mess, probably beyond understanding and certainly beyond salvation – and there was little I could do about it.
Back in 1968 my Western Technology and Soviet Economic Development was published by the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. In three substantial volumes I detailed how the West had built the Soviet Union. However, the work generated a seemingly insoluble puzzle – why have we done this? Why did we build the Soviet Union, while we also transferred technology to Hitler’s Germany? Why does Washington want to conceal these facts? Why have we boosted Soviet military power? And simultaneously boosted our own?
In subsequent books, the Wall Street series, I added more questions – but no answers. I had more or less arrived at the conclusion that there was no rational answer that could be proven.
Then a year or so ago I received an eight-inch batch of documents – nothing less than the membership lists of an American secret society. Glancing through the sheets it was more than obvious – this was no ordinary group. The names spelled Power, with a capital P. As I probed each individual a pattern emerged … and a formerly fuzzy world became crystal clear.
These volumes will explain why the West builds the Soviets and Hitler; why we go to war, to lose; why Wall Street loves Marxists and Nazis; why the kids can’t read; why the Churches have become propaganda founts; why historical facts are suppressed, why politicians lie and a hundred other whys.
This series is infinitely more important than the original Western Technology series on technological transfers. If I have a magnum opus, this is it.
