Conspiracy

Did President Bush’s Grandpa Steals Geronomo’s Skull?

geronimoIf you have ever watched any conspiracy or unexplained history shows, you have undoubtedly comes across stories about the secret society at Yale University — Skull and Bones. The society has been linked to numerous political figures, for example in the modern era, George W. Bush and John Kerry.

Although the story of the Skull and Bones society is interesting enough in and of itself, I only relay that as background information about the story of the missing skull of famous Native American Geronimo.

In 2007 ABC News reported on what allegedly took place.

The oft-told tale is that (George W.) Bush’s grandfather, Prescott Bush, and some of his buddies at Yale, dug up the grave of Apache chief Geronimo, removing his skull and femur and placing them in a glass case in the lobby of the Tomb, the headquarters of the university’s notorious Skull and Bones society back in 1917.

In 2009, descendants of Geronimo filed a lawsuit in federal court suing, the society, Yale University and the federal government. The article noted that the discovery of a letter from a club member describing the theft lent credibility of the allegations. But, Federal Judge Richard Roberts dismissed the lawsuit the following year, in 2010. The case was dismissed on some technicalities like — the government had not waived its right to be sued the lawsuit was built around a 2009 law which the judge said did not apply to the situation.

The 2009 law prohibits the desecration of Native American graves and remains. The judge dismissed the suit because before 2009 — it was not illegal to desecrate the graves or remains of Native Americans.

Books I’ve Read: History Decoded: The 10 Greatest Conspiracies of All Time

I watched some of the stories included in this book on TV. The book contains all the conspiracies one would expect to find, JFK’s murder, John Wilkes Booth (was he really captured) and some obscure ones like where is the White House cornerstone? But the one that pique my interest was the one about the American ‘Stonehenge,’ — the Georgia Guidestones.

The 10 guidelines or principles are inscribed in granite monuments that are nearly 20 feet tall. Besides the somewhat crytic tone of the rules is the fact that the public at large has few to no clues about who financed this massive undertaking. The guides were placed in a northeast rural Georgia — in what is referred to as a safe zone (should the apocolypse occur). For the most part the guides are benign-sounding — although the topmost guide suggests a huge reduction in human population.

The stones were erected in the 1980s. Here are the 10 guides:

  1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
  2. Guide reproduction wisely — improving fitness and diversity.
  3. Unite humanity with a living new language.
  4. Rule passion — faith — tradition — and all things with tempered reason.
  5. Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
  6. Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
  7. Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
  8. Balance personal rights with social duties.
  9. Prize truth — beauty — love — seeking harmony with the infinite.
  10. Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room for nature — Leave room for nature.

There are many theories about what the stones represent — everything from Satanic groups wanting a New World Order to a sign of the times — the fear the Cold War would wipe out humanity. Regardless, if nothing else they are definitely an intriguing modern mystery.
