Colin Powell's hacked emails, according to David Bixenspan (LawNewz), "relate to his experiences attending the secretive, shadowy Bohemian Grove encampment this past July. Bohemian Grove was described in a 2011 Washington Post article by Elizabeth Flock as a gathering of “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, ... and other rituals.” Only one of these rituals, shot by conspiracy theorist Alex Jones exists on video.
The hacked email, sent by Powell to former Canadian Attorney General Peter MacKay on July 24th, reveals Powell talking about how the Bohemian Grove attendees are planning to vote in the upcoming presidential election. (See the above-linked David Bixenspan article for the contents of the email.)
According to Michael Matt, who recently commented on this email, "The theoretical end game of the (Bohemian Grove) retreat is 'to escape the "frontier culture," or uncivilized interests, of common men.' Members and guests reportedly included former Vice President Dick Cheney, Walter Cronkite, Clint Eastwood, and most Republican presidents since Dwight Eisenhower. So it's no surprise that Powell is on their list of elites, but what is surprising is how willing he is to dish on the meetings."
My comment: If this is what the Republican ruling elites do in private gatherings, can one can hardly imagine what their Democrat counterparts do.
