When Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer published his memoirs in Operation Dark Heart in 2010, the Defense Department found the book so interesting they immediately snapped up the initial run of 10,000 copies to prevent them from getting into the wrong hands and future copies were heavily censored.
This week, Shaffer and co-author William H. Keith are releasing a novel, The Last Line, an action-packed thriller that focuses on the dark and twisted cabal known as Bohemian Grove.
The Bohemian Grove is a 2,700 acre campground amid an ancient Redwood forest. Outfitted for the rich and famous, it exists not between the pages of a work of fiction but at 20601 Bohemian Avenue in Monte Rio in northern California. Owned by the Bohemian Club, a private San Francisco-based men’s art club, the Bohemian Grove hosts an annual two-week, three-weekend camping event in July for some of the most powerful and influential men in the world.
The Bohemian Club’s membership is all male and includes artists, musicians, prominent business leaders and government officials. The membership list has included every Republican and some Democratic U.S. presidents since 1923. Guests are welcome but must first pass a rigorous screening process before they’re allowed to enter the secretive society.
The annual campfest is generally assumed to be just an opportunity for relaxation and merriment, with members behaving like, well, bohemians, drinking and carousing and peeing on trees. In reality, the goings-on at Bohemian Grove are much more sinister.
A 2011 article by Infowars’ Paul Joseph Watson included excerpts from an interview with Sonoma State sociology Professor Peter Phillips, who attended the Grove in 1994. Phillips said the “elitist encampment was a forum for ‘very important people’ to discuss ‘intimate issues.’”
“They’re very clearly talking politics and business constantly,” Phillips said, completely contradicting the Bohemian Club’s claim that ‘weaving spiders come not here,’ a reference to the notion that members talking shop is severely frowned upon.
“I proved the opposite, quite clearly,” said Philips. “I heard conversations about business. ‘If GE comes in on the deal, we can get the Japanese to join’ – three men walking down a trail together.”
The Manhattan Project was born at Bohemian Grove in 1942, which led to the creation of the atomic bomb, a fact members still brag about today. And the Strategic Defense Initiative, Star Wars, was introduced during a lakeside talk in the early 80′s, before Ronald Reagan publicly proposed the program in March 1983.
In 2000, Alex Jones became the first journalist to capture on film the ritualistic “Cremation of Care” ceremony held at the Grove. “This is like something out of a Hollywood movie, where teenagers are out camping in the wilderness and come over a hill and witness some devil cult in black and red garb sacrificing some poor soul on a bloody altar.”
In his article, Watson said, “The fact that Bohemian Grove is perhaps the ultimate ‘secret room’, in which world and domestic policy is agreed upon in amidst bizarre environment of drunken frivolity, alleged homosexual prostitution, and occult pagan ceremonies should be of utmost concern to any thinking person.
Given that Shaffer’s Operation Dark Heart was so heavily censored by the DoD, it’s a safe bet The Last Line will be a real page-turner. Shaffer didn’t want to say much for fear of spoiling the plot, but he did tell Alex:
“I’ve seen you when you did the show on Bohemian Grove and I don’t want to say it didn’t influence our thinking because it did. … There’s certain elements of the government who may work against our own people’s interests, and it’s tied to Bohemian Grove.”

Back in 2011, Alex interviewed novelist, non-fiction writer, and TV show creator Brad Meltzer, host of the History Channel series Brad Meltzer’s Decoded, an American mystery and conspiracy theory investigation series that produced an episode delving into the bizarre rituals and mock sacrifices performed at Bohemian Grove.
