Going back to when George H. W. Bush served as Ronald Reagan's Vice-President, there have been rumors that he is a Freemason. When he served as President, he was believed to be the head of some kind of "New World Order" and many of his remarks at the time were taken out of context as evidence he held such a position in the shadowy underworld of the Freemasons. Even his "thousand points of light" campaign seemed to serve as fodder than the "enlightened President" was serving some larger plan for global domination--perhaps with Illuminati assistance.
Symbol of the Skull and Bones Society
But neither George Herbert Walker Bush nor his son George W. Bush are Freemasons. That is not to say that they don't belong to a secret society, because they both do--the same secret society in fact. They are both
Bonesmen. Alumni of the secret society at Yale University called Skull and Bones.
Each year, the Skull and Bones members "tap" fifteen new members at
Yale University to join their society. The list of
alumni is most impressive--along with the Bushs', other
members include John Kerry, President William Howard Taft, and former
Secretary of War Henry Stimson just to name a few.
But the Skull and Bones is not a Masonic organization. There is no connection between Skull and Bones and Freemasonry at all. One is an international fraternity of men,
and the other is a college society.
This is no question. George H. W. Bush is not a Freemason.
is an author and novelist whose work includes the award-winning non-fiction historical series Famous American Freemasons and the novels One Last Shot (2011), A Shot After Midnight (2012) and Shot to Hell (2014).
