President Bush's choice to lead the Securities and Exchange Commission was sworn into office Tuesday during a ceremony at the White House.

William Donaldson, a multimillionaire investment banker, was nominated by President Bush late last year to replace Harvey Pitt as chairman of the SEC.  Pitt was forced to resign after a stormy 18-month reign during a rash of corporate scandals starting with the collapse of Enron.  The US Senate confirmed Donaldson last Thursday.

During the White House ceremony, President Bush said Donaldson was well prepared for the challenge of running the SEC.  Bill Donaldson spent a career preparing for this challenge, said President Bush.  He has served as a found of a leading investment firm, the Chairman of the New York Stock Exchange, the founding den of the Yale School of Management.  He has set high standards throughout his entire career.

What President Bush failed to mention is William Donaldson's membership in The Order, an occult secret society with Nazi connections composed of members of the Eastern Establishment aristocracy.  Known to outsiders as Skull & Bones, The Order is controlled by about 20 wealthy East Coast families.  The Bush family has been a dominant player in The Order for decades.  President George W. Bush and his father, former President Bush, are members of The Order.  Prescott Bush, the current president's grandfather, was also a member of The Order.

Based at Yale University, The Order is the American branch of the German Brotherhood of Death.  Adolph Hitler was a member of the German secret society.  The Order operates from a windowless three-story mausoleum on the Yale campus, Bush's ala mater, known as the Tomb.  The Tomb supposedly contains artifacts that belonged to Hitler, human skeletons and skulls, stolen gravestones, a mummy, and mementos from numerous wars.  The Tomb allegedly also contains the skull of Geronimo, the Apache war chief.  Prescott Bush, President Bush's grandfather, stole the Indian chief's skull.  The skull is used in various occult rituals.

Donaldson, the new SEC chairman, was a Yale classmate with Jonathan Bush, the President's uncle.  Donaldson was a member of The Order's the class of 1953.  Delegations are named for the number of years between when the members joined and 1832, The Order's inception.

Upon graduation from Yale, Donaldson worked at the Wall Street firm of G.H. Walker, former President Bush's grandfather.  The former president was an upperclassman at Yale's Skull & Bones secret society when Donaldson was tapped to become one of the 15 new members chosen each year.

Six years after leaving Yale, Donaldson and Dan Lufkin, another member of The Order, the two Bonesmen teamed up with Dick Jenrette, a graduate of Harvard Business School, to launch the Wall Street investment firm Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette.

In 1973, Donaldson was appointed undersecretary of state under Henry Kissinger in the administration of Gerald Ford.  Ford, who was appointed as Vice President when Spiro Agnew resigned, became president when Richard Nixon resigned during the Watergate scandal.  Nelson Rockefeller was appointed as the new vice president.  William Donaldson was assigned to help Rockefeller's transition into the vice presidency.

Donaldson is just the latest Bonesman to join the Bush White House team.  Immediately after his inauguration in January 2001, President Bush's first social gathering in the White House was his 1968 class of Bonesmen.  Edward McNally, general counsel of the Office of Homeland Security and senior associate counsel on national security, is a member of The Order.  Roy Austin, Bush's ambassador to Trinidad, is a member of the occult organization.  Evan Galbraith, the Pentagon's representative in Europe, is also a member of The Order.
