Bohemian Grove: Where the rich and powerful go to misbehave

Every July, some of the richest and most powerful men in the world gather at a 2,700 acre campground in Monte Rio, Calif., for two weeks of heavy drinking, super-secret talks, druid worship (the group insists they are simply “revering the Redwoods”), and other rituals.

Their purpose: to escape the “frontier culture,” or uncivilized interests, of common men.

The people that gather at Bohemian Grove — who have included prominent business leaders, former U.S. presidents, musicians, and oil barons — are told that “Weaving Spiders Come Not Here,” meaning business deals are to be left outside. One exception was in 1942, when a planning for the Manhattan Project took place at the grove, leading to the creation of the atom bomb.

  1. Blog reading is my favorite past time. I am curious though do you enjoy writing them as much as I enjoy reading them? I have become a subscriber so I will keep updated now.

    • Great! I will write usually once a week, but post articles and such much more often. I think giving credit to the many journalists who work to provide important, relevant information (but whose voices often get squelched) so my news posts will always direct you to the source. I hope you find my posts thought provoking and informative and that commentary will be encouraging and lively. Thanks for visiting!
