Subject: BS: Sacrifice to Moloch?
From: GUEST
Date: 29 Jan 03 - 08:14 PM

The Bushes belong to Bohemian Club. The club has meeting places around the world, but one of the favorites is in northern California. There, once a year, a couple thousand men meet for the 'Cremation of Care' ceremony, in which a sacrifice is made to a 40-foot stone owl deity. You can see streaming video of the ceremony at the URL below:

http://www.infowars.com/bg1.html

The owl god is Moloch, an ancient Canaanite god. The following is a description of the Canaanite ceremony:

...The Canaanites actually constructed a huge copper likeness of the deity, complete with a complicated mechanical ability to raise an arm and open it's mouth. This 30 to 40 ft. tall idol had a large belly that would be filled with firewood and stoked until the belly glowed orange. The children to be sacrificed would be made so that they could not move. How they did this is a mystery, but one can imagine that a sharp blow to the head or a combination of readily available drugs could render a person listless....

http://www.dunmoloch.com/moloch.html

And now you have the Bushes sending our children to that part of the world to end up "...bulldozed into mass graves and burned to save the lives of surviving troops, under an option being considered by the Pentagon..."

http://www.indybay.org/news/2003/01/1565691.php

The Bushes are apparently preparing a huge sacrifice to Moloch in the Middle East.

Moloch has appeared here and there in both fiction and non-fiction. Demons, like Archangels, appear to have lengthy lifespans, and a tendency to keep returning to Earth to make "guest" appearances when conditions are right.

In one of those Mudcat synchronicit things, in another thread I've just been drawing a parallel between the impending war and Rome's genocidal Third Punic War against the defeated Carthage - the one that led the Roman historian to say "They made a desert and they called it peace".

And Carthage had been where the Moloch sacrifices was said to have taken place. Mind, a lot more children were killed by the Romans.

So Bush might be worshiping a god whose cult used to entail child sacrifice. Compare that to the worship of a god who frequently commanded his followers to commit mass genocide, often on tribes whose only crime was to inhabit the promised land and not worship him. Moloch and Jehovah both had some pretty nasty stuff to their names, 3000 YEARS AGO! I'd be a lot more convinced if you didn't constantly equate Bush being a bad person with Bush worshiping the wrong entity.

Forum Lurker - Spectacularly apt point about Jehovah!!! Right smack on the money with that one, I'd say. Watch out for people whose religion is full of blood, vengeance and the justification of slaughter in "God's name". The Nazis were heavy dabblers in both regular conventional Christianity (for the common masses and the ordinary soldiers), mixed with Nordic mythology, and then some really weird occult stuff for the leaders in the innermost circles of power.

It wouldn't surprise me too much if corporate America were doing something similar. Very rich people tend to get drawn into very peculiar stuff...too much power and too much money can do that to some people, maybe most people. That's what the movie "Eyes Wide Shut" was about.

Actually, "belief" is just an opinion (informed or not informed). I don't count too heavily on stuff I merely believe...it's stuff I KNOW that I count heavily on. The stuff I merely believe in is interesting, but it remains somewhat speculative, although some beliefs are admittedly a lot firmer than others.

(For instance, I believe Hitler died in 1945. I don't know it for absolute certain, but I think the evidence that he did is pretty strong. I also believe Neil Armstrong was on the moon. Again, the evidence seems pretty convincing. I KNOW who I am and I KNOW I am alive and I KNOW life is valuable. I know I don't wish to kill anyone...although I'm not incapable of doing so. That's knowledge. I believe Bush is a misguided man on a disastrous course. That's opinion.)

The stuff other people believe in is interesting too, partly cos it tells you a lot about them...partly because it can open up new possibilities which one may not have considered before at all.

Get real. It's a bonding ritual at best. They're not 'worshipping' a demon, just linking with each other. All societies; malignant or benevolent, secret, political, fraternal, religious, whatever; do this sort of thing, because it fulfills a basic human need for belonging to some sort of group (even loners, contradictory as that may sound).

It doesn't mean that they actively 'believe' in, nor that they are trying to reconstruct the creed of, some god whose original worship passed out of the world several thousnad years ago.

If (big "if", unbelievable "if", IMO) they really do want to see thousands of their own slaughtered, it'll be for pragmatic reasons, not from devotion to a dead god.

How many silly little rituals & ceremonies are enacted right across the US every week in universities, colleges, sports teams & the gods know where else? This is just another one of those. As Sorcha says, you raised it, you *prove* it beyond any doubt. Anyone can stick a sinister voice-over on an otherwise innocent vid-clip. I bet if Dubya responded in kind, he could reveal all sorts of sinister agenda & intent on the part of the film-maker. Who you going to believe?

When it comes down to it, what you 'want' to believe is anything & everything negative you hear about Bush & The Establishment. Whether it's true or not doesn't actually matter very much, I fear. I could theorize about what kind of thrills you get out of all this paranoia & trolling that you're doing, but this latest load of rubbish is lame, even for you...

LH hits it almost smack on. Base your beliefs on facts wherever possible. Base your facts on your beliefs, & you'll wind up... well, where you already are. The trouble with all of your 'facts' is that they could be linked up & interpreted in thousands of different ways, most of them more or less inocent.

But you like/want/need to believe in only the sinister & awful possibilities. Which is why most people will continue to regard you as rather detached from reality...

Our president is worshipping Moloch. So WHAT if it's just 'ritual'. Our president is worshipping Moloch. Let me repeat, in case some of the finer points in this were lost on you...our president is worshipping Moloch. Does that get through? Explain away all you want, but our president is taking part in a human-sacrifice ritual and worshipping Moloch. He is worshipping Moloch, in case you didn't understand part of this. THAT is the reality, and I wish I WERE detached from it, but in THIS world...the real world...GWBush is worshipping Moloch. Don't you see that as a bit of a problem?

There is no firm evidence of human sacrifice. There is evidence of a ritualistic ceremony which emulates human sacrifice. It is not dissimilar to the Sacrament in which people do some weird shit with blood and flesh, symbolized by Gallo and saltines.

Now, if you want a phancy interpretation about the transcendance of fleshly concerns for the good of the Higher Group, I can write one for ya but I charge for the time. In advance.

It is also not clear that these people are genuinely worshiping anything, except power itself. 'Course that whole point is a semantic minefield. SInce the translation of Moloch itself is closely related to secular leaders such as a king, or president, it is possible they are "celebrating" the accrual of power in secular affairs tot he detriment of their spiritual standards.

By the way, the original concept of the Divine Trinity was anchored around Baal, whom Moloch allegedly serves. Baal is the Hebrew word used to describe the god Melq'art, sone of El and brother of Astarte, the mother-goddess in the ancient Phoenician hierarchy. As such, Baal was the sun god. The Ammonites, later than the Phenicians, added the overlay of Moloch and his sacrifices of children through fire. Originally, Meq'art was simply the divine representation of seasons, sunlight, and fire.

Finally the traditional image of Moloch is not an owl, but a human/bull combination. The owl was symbolic of Lilith the night-witch, a stealer of children, but not renowned for burning them, as far as I know.

I want to thank our GUEST for some of the funniest stuff I've read this week.

Ah, yes, the "InfoWars" site -- true tales ripped from the pages of the finest comic book journalism. The video looks like a poorly staged school play overlaid with curiously higher-resolution still pictures of "damning" evidence. Adobe Premier, anyone? The global elite? Nowhere in the video. The crowd noises? Damn, if it doesn't sound like "Applause #13" out of the Sound Ideas sound effects library, volumn #31.

Just because a conspiracy web site says so doesn't mean it's true. If the New York Times busts this story open, I might consider it, because they have a vested interest in trying to protect their reputation. The only reputation this web site has is churning out a bunch of outlandish stories. Hey, they might even print a true one occassionally -- but the goal is to shock and astonish, not to present truth.

"All indicators?" What, a fuzzy video that may or may not be fake and may or may not have anything to do with the people in question? Unsubstantiated allegations? There's nothing to refute or disprove, because no proof has been presented of any kind.

Anyway, so what if our President worships an ancient diety? Hey, guess what, he DOES!

Somehow mock sacrifices to a God seems no more sick to me than consuming the flesh and drinking the blood of a diety during Communion. Somehow sacrificing lives to Moloch seems no more sickening than sacrificing lives to the God Jehovah in a crusade against Islam, sacrificing lives to the God of Oil, the God of Capitalism or the God of Democracy.

There's enough nasty crap going on in government without having to resort to bogeyman tales and the tired rehashing of variations on urban legands and conspiracy tales that have been around for centuries.

And how can the human sacrifice to Moloch be compared to the Christian sacrament for the purposes of this discussion? GWBush claims to be a Christian, yet he participates in the worship of Moloch. How can that be? The two can't be reconciled.

You people sound pretty desperate to disprove this, but the proof still stands. Keep on trying to convince me our president doesn't engage in human sacrifice rituals to an ancient pagan god. I want to believe.

"The burden of proof is on the assertor"...no one has to prove 'wrong' a complex theory built on a few facts, linked in someone's head in an arcane way. Lest this not be misunderstood..""The burden of proof is on the assertor""...that is, if you make a claim, YOU, the assertor, have to prove it...it has to be proof that would satisfy the majority of competent observers, not just someone who already has the will to believe this sort of thing.

(Did I mention that "proof" is a pretty stringent requirement, and that the one who offers the theory is the one who needs to GIVE that proof?)

Oh, BTW, proof is a lot more than showing a few pictures, and then speculating wildly about the 'intent' of those depicted in the images, or claimed to have been in the vicinity.

p.s..... there are those who are a bit picky about what they accept as 'proof', or did I mention that?

GUEST every time a Catholic priest says Mass, he symbolically re-enacts the torture, execution, death, and public consumption of the body of his slain God! The same way as the Eastern Woodland nations of this continent would ritually torture, kill and then eat the bodies of the brave young warriors they had captured.

It stunned and horrified the Jesuit missionaries first witnessing this among the Huron and Iroquois, not only that the young captives were decorated and treated with utmost respect and ceremony by their captors, but that they were truly ecstatic, singing joyously throughout the whole ordeal! To be courageous enough to be sacrificed was the ultimate honor, the ultimate end of 'godhood' for those young men. But what the Jesuits, (who labelled them savage brutes in sorry need of 'redemption') didn't understand is that the Mass they say every day is exactly the same ritual, carried out for the same purposes, in symbolic form.

Ancient rituals enacting and evoking the power of the fundamental mystery of life - that life feeds on death, requires death - are universal throughout human history. Everything you eat was once alive, be it plant or animal. We must kill to eat, we must eat to live. Without death, there is no life. That is the 'horrific' nature of life, of Creation! The names and dates of the peoples and deities change, but the basic song remains the same. The God of Life, of Fertility and Wisdom is exactly the same as the God of War, of Death. The 'Lord of the Dance', of life and death, birth and rebirth, so to speak. So there is nothing new or strange here.

I did watch part of the videos, but the quality is so poor I gave up unable to recognize any of the images with certainty. And I did read Alex Jones' story "Bohemian Grove". Its worthy of mention that even the author states he is not certain whether an effigy or a human being was burned at that alleged ritual!

But even if the President of the US et al are engaged in rituals of this type, is this something which truly threatens me? Not in the least! ... unless I believe that the ritual has the power to affect me! Then my terror and hopelessness may very well get the best of me!

The same way as only people who believe in the power of a voodoo hex to harm them can be victimized by such things. There's no 'dark magic' here except the dark magic of the human mind!

So what's the best thing I can do right now? Get back to enjoying and celebrating and being productively creative in every moment of my truly miraculous existence right here and now? You betcha!

*sigh* Okay, but only for the sake of enlightening the clueless.

"The place exists"
Yes. Bohemian Grove is a private club in Sonoma County. It was found c. 1879 by a group of journalists who wanted to have a bash in the woods and do what we would call "networking" today.
Membership is exclusive, but not very expensive as private clubs go. Membership happens to include many major political figures, most of whom are definately leaning toward the right. The clubs activities are very private and exclusive.

The above can be said about many other private clubs, college fraternal organizations and societies.

"and our 'president' engages in human-sacrifice / burning ceremonies there."
GWBush the Lesser is a member, as were many past presidents. While many rumors abound about what goes on inside the club including human sacrifice, there is no proof. Testimonial accounts of "infiltrators" are notoriously inaccurate for any activity, let alone one for which so much rumor abounds, and particularly since they don't agree with each other. Videos looked faked. They are not neccessarily taken on site and can easily be digitally manipulated.

Proof: NONE
Human-sacrifice: Allegations that have not held up under investigation
Burning ceremonies: Who cares? Having a bonfire is illegal? Better tell every college in the country to cancel their pep rallys!
Presidential involvement: Unproven. He may or may not have been present at any of these purported ceremonies and many or may not have taken part.
Worship of Moloch: also unproven and merely hypothesized. Originally, the attendees burned the mascot of Care to symbolize that they were going to put their cares aside and have fun.

"And now he's getting ready to launch 'pre-emptive' fireballs at the rest of the world and burn our troops in the field. "
Irrelevant, unless you happen to buy all of the above.

"And how can the human sacrifice to Moloch be compared to the Christian sacrament for the purposes of this discussion?"
Yes, yes, I can do that. From where I'm sitting, Christianity looks like a cult that glorifies the sacrifice of a "king" in order to save the land and people. Hardly original in religious mythos and very ancient in origin. If the rumors said Bohemian Grove took a big tofu body, roasted it, sliced it an ate it, no doubt everyone would be decrying "cannabalistic rituals."

Is it pagan worship? I doubt it, but I don't care, because I don't equate "pagan" with bad anymore than I equate "Christian" with good. Freedom of religion cuts both ways.

My guess at the truth: There are some legitimate concerns about Bohemian Grove. Big movers and shakers get together and get drunk and make deals that may affect the citizenry. Hence, the origin of the protests. Quite frankly, this can happen in a bar in Georgetown, so I am less worried about what politicians do than trying to get honest ones in office.

Secrecy begets rumor, and gullible conspiracy theorists hate to be on the outside. If there's anything worse than looking in at a group you'll never belong to, it's not being allowed to look in! If it's secret, therefore it must be evil, right?

Yeah, there's probably a bonfire. Yeah, they give some speeches. Yeah, I bet they get drunk and if some of 'em aren't doing drugs I'd be surprised. I'm guessing a lot of whoring and such goes on. Those good ol' boys get together and cut loose. Of course they don't want anyone to find out, as it doesn't fit their carefully crafted cleancut image.

Uh huh.

A bit weird for someone who likes going in for "crusades", even if it was all just some kinky rich kids game. But then a bit weird is what you'd expect.

Hey, I live up here in the woods of Northern California. The people here worship large SUV's, not this Moloch guy.
I suppose they smoke a little weed now and then. Do you think Bush does that? Hell, does he even come to Northern California? I've never seen the guy, and I hope I never do.

Actually, you can find some interesting information about the Bohemian Club rumors at hoaxinfo.com. I think the person who started this thread has provided convincing proof that bush might belong to a rich boys' club - but didn't we know that already? I think it's also been proven that the person who started this thread is somewhat of a crackpot.

early in the campaign, I remember Bush making clear that he considered Jesus as responsible for his recovery from moderate alcoholism...He is as 'sure' of his moral/religious ground as any devout Muslim, and I have no doubt that it is only with great restraint that he does not inject this righteousness into the public/political arena more overtly.

There was a semi-cute little bumper-sticker joke going around a few years ago..."Kill a Commie for Christ". Only, in some folks minds, it is not so funny...and various things can be substituted for 'commie'.

No...I do not read minds, and I do not 'know' exactly how Bush, or anyone else, thinks. But I think I'd be scared out of my wits if I did!

You fossils are certainly resistant to new ideas. Or rather, the resurgence of old ideas. Bush goes to Bohemian Grove, where they have child/fire sacrifices to an ancient demon, and his military just announced it plans to burn young Americans in Iraq...historically the mother of all demon-plagued areas of the world.

And this isn't any third-party voodoo scenario, where you have to BELIEVE in the voodoo for it to work. Or maybe it is, so wait a minute...THERE! I just imagined GWBush DOESN'T have his finger on the button, so that makes the possibility of him being a demon-worshipper a moot point, right?

Well I don't imagine it would have gone down too well with the voters if he'd said that he owed his recovery from alcoholism to Moloch.

You berate others for supposedly being resistant to new ideas, while clinging to pathetic superstitions like demons?

GUEST, you may believe what you wish, whether it's in some hypothetical sacrifice to a demon (and why is that more horrifying that sacrificing soldiers to the demon of Money?) or in some conspiracy about the WTC bombings back when shrubs were planted around the white house 100 years ago. I think it's safe to say that we don't share your paranoid visions.

I have my own paranoid, visions, thank you.

But this isn't MY vision. It's the Bush family's. And I don't much care for it. Sure, maybe Moloch got GW off the bottle, but I don't think having a pResident who might be drinking baby's blood is any more interested in our well-being than one who drinks Jim Beam. And do I HAVE to be tolerant of demon-worshippers like the Bushes? Can't I be just a LITTLE politically incorrect here and say I don't think burning babies is OK? The subject of anti-semitism came up earlier, well, can I be just a LITTLE politcally incorrect and say I think the Nazis put a couple of toes over the line when they murdered millions of Jews? Nah...I think Moloch-worshipping is a bit much. I'm against it.

Voices? I have SHOWN you Bohemian Grove, the Bushes attending the rituals there, human sacrifice by fire at those rituals, and Bush saying he's going to burn American troops. No one has yet dispelled the nagging feeling I have that the Bushes are demon-worshippers.

The bodies are burned to ash, no doubt. But that area of California is notorious for it's number of kids found in shallow graves. Polly Klass (sp?) was found there...big nationwide story with laws resulting from her murder. If you want stories on bodies and Bushes, just look at Florida's record (Bush state). The man Jeb appointed to manage the Child Protective Services database is a convicted child sex offender, and thousands of kids are missing in Florida.
