This is pretty fantastically strange. The frescoes in the Bank of America corporate headquarters are as cryptic as those at the Denver airport. Deconstructed here as being rife with New World Order occult symbolism.
I chalked this up to more New World Order paranoia – if banks are known for one thing, it’s bad art. Until looking into the artist, who happens to be the grandson of McKendree Robbins Long, painter of some of the craziest milliennialist paintings in history.
Not saying there’s a direct connection between the two artists, beyond family. But that’s bizarre – entertainingly bizarre.
Meanwhile, Wikileaks releases information about American empire in which New World Order is bandied about even by people who don’t reside on the conspiracy fringe. There are calls to kill Julian Assange for putting American interests at risk, but no calls for violence against leaders that actually orchestrate wars that kill thousands, which also put American interests at risk. Unless…American empire trumps every other concern.
And also meanwhile, the next release by Wikileaks will be about Bank of America. Why they’re not releasing these documents now is also puzzling. If they’re damning and could lead to significant reforms, there’s no time like the present. I still don’t get why Wall Street types would want to hoard money for a time post-NWO (if it happens) when there would be fewer people and money would be meaningless. Unless they’re all about hoarding power, and money is the main representation of power in the present.
What’s striking about the release of the cables is how relatively mundane they are. The main takeaway is that Iran is terrible and people want to bomb it – no news, but actually works in the favor of hawks, not against it. The damage control done by Clinton seems preventive for cables that are truly damaging down the line, not necessarily those that were just released. Which means calling for Assange’s head reveals as much about the current power structure in government and media as the cables themselves. They want to keep building empires unfettered.
The world is very weird. These days you don’t need to be a conspiracy theorist to be a conspiracy theorist.
