Sinister Sites: IRS Headquarters, Maryland

Nov 28th, 2012 | Category: Featured, Sinister Sites | 207 comments


 The IRS headquarters in New Carrollton, Maryland is a government building  that, despite being constructed with public funds, contains art referring to elite secret societies. More importantly, the art conveys a strange message about the U.S. Constitution, and the American people in general. We’ll look at the symbolic meaning of the art found in front of the IRS headquarters in Maryland.

The IRS is probably the most hated institution in America – mainly because its primary role is to force people to hand over their hard-earned cash. This modern equivalent of the proverbial tax collector indeed collects money from American workers and gives it to a government that will, in turn, use this money to send drones abroad or to build information superstructures to better monitor these same workers. What’s not to like?

The IRS was originally created as a “temporary measure” during wartime (funny how the Canadian Revenue Agency was also supposed to be “temporary”), but there is nothing temporary about it now. In fact, the gigantic IRS complex in New Carrollton, Maryland was built in 1997 and is still growing today, indicating that this institution is indeed here to stay. This modern building has all of the state-of-the-art amenities one can think of, but it is the odd public art in front of it that is the most noteworthy. As is the case for many government buildings, the art displayed means absolutely nothing to most people, but to those who are versed in secret society symbolism, its implications are manifold and profound. In fact, fully understanding the origins and the meaning of the symbols in front of the IRS building means understanding who are truly in power in America (and around the world), what they believe in and what they truly think about us, the masses.

The IRS is not known to be a very artistic institution and likewise there is not much art present at its headquarters in Maryland. However, the few pieces that are on display manage to convey everything that needs to be known about the occult elite.

General Layout

The entrance to the IRS headquarters is guarded by two black and white pillars made of the highest quality marble, topped with white hands. Between the two pillars is a dark pyramid with a metallic capstone on which is written “We the People”. What does all of this represent? Here’s an “official” description:

“The most striking elements are the huge, white marble hands atop each column. Each hand points skyward, one with the forefinger extended; the other is an open hand, the fingers ever so slightly cupped.

The 1997 work is called “Vox Populi,” which is Latin for “the voice of the people.” The hand with the raised index finger represents deliberation, argument, the gesticulation of a speaker giving his or her opinion. The hand with an open palm represents the act of voting or taking an oath.”
- The Washington Post, “The Big Hands of the Law”

That is all well and good, but what does “Vox Populi” have to do with the IRS? Can citizens weigh in or vote on anything about the IRS? Why are the pillars black and white? Why is there a pyramid with a capstone between them? As it is the case for most occult symbols, there’s as basic (and unsatisfactory) interpretation given to the masses and a “real” meaning for those in the know. For those in the know, the art is a nod to the highest degrees of Freemasonry, the true source of power in America – not unlike what the Washington monument stands for.

The art in front of the IRS Headquarters features a pyramid with a capstone between two pillars. The black and white stripes refer to the Hermetic concept of duality.

This Masonic monument in Israel bears exactly the same elements: A pyramid with a capstone between two pillars. The stripes on the ground represent duality.

Let’s look at each element of this (not so) public art.

Twin Pillars

The symbolism of the twin pillars is ancient and very meaningful as it refers to the core of hermetism, the basis of secret society teachings. In short, the pillars represent duality and the union of opposites:

“The right Tablet of the Law further signifies Jachin – the white pillar of light; the left Tablet, Boaz – the shadowy pillar of darkness. These were the names of the two pillars cast from brass set up on the porch of King Solomon’s Temple. They were eighteen cubits in height and beautifully ornamented with wreaths of chainwork, nets, and pomegranates. On the top of each pillar was a large bowl – now erroneously called a ball or globe – one of the bowls probably containing fire and the other water. The celestial globe (originally the bowl of fire), surmounting the right-hand column (Jachin), symbolized the divine man; the terrestrial globe (the bowl of water), surmounting the left-hand column (Boaz), signified the earthly man. These two pillars respectively connote also the active and the passive expressions of Divine Energy, the sun and the moon, sulphur and salt, good and bad, light and darkness. Between them is the door leading into the House of God, and standing thus at the gates of Sanctuary they are a reminder that Jehovah is both an androgynous and an anthropomorphic deity. As two parallel columns they denote the zodiacal signs of Cancer and Capricorn, which were formerly placed in the chamber of initiation to represent birth and death – the extremes of physical life. They accordingly signify the summer and the winter solstices, now known to Freemasons under the comparatively modern appellation of the “two St. Johns.”

In the mysterious Sephirothic Tree of the Jews, these two pillars symbolize Mercy and Severity. Standing before the gate of King Solomon’s Temple, these columns had the same symbolic import as the obelisks before the sanctuaries of Egypt. When interpreted Qabbalistically, the names of the two pillars mean “In strength shall My House be established. “In the splendor of mental and spiritual illumination, the High Priest stood between the pillars as a mute witness to the perfect virtue of equilibrium – that hypothetical point equidistant from all extremes. He thus personified the divine nature of man in the midst of his compound constitution – the mysterious Pythagorean Monad in the presence of the Duad. On one side towered the stupendous column of the intellect; on the other, the brazen pillar of the flesh. Midway between these two stands the glorified wise man, but he cannot reach this high estate without first suffering upon the cross made by joining these pillars together. The early Jews occasionally represented the two pillars, Jachin and Boaz, as the legs of Jehovah, thereby signifying to the modern philosopher that Wisdom and Love, in their most exalted sense, support the whole order of creation – both mundane and supermundane.”
- Manly P. Hall, The Secret Teachings of All Ages

The same way Masonic pillars guard the entrance of Masonic temples, two pillars guard the entrance of the IRS building.

 

Masonic art depicting the twin pillars named Jachin and Boaz guarding the entrance of a Masonic temple.

While not all pillars are necessarily Masonic, those in front of the IRS building contain other features that leave no doubt regarding their secret society connection.

The IRS pillars feature exactly 13 black and white stripes and a very significant hand sign.

Sharply contrasting with the rest of the building, the pillars are stripped in black and white, a pattern evoking duality, a concept that is visually represented on the Masonic mosaic pavement.

Probably the most important feature in Masonic lodges, the black and white checkerboard pattern is meant to be a visual representation of the concept of duality. Variations of this pattern do exist.

To make things even more explicitly Masonic (for those in the know) each pillar is comprised of exactly 13 stripes, a number that is of the utmost importance in Masonic lore (research the omnipresence of the number 13 on the American dollar bill). Considering the constant attention to occult numerology in Masonic art, this fact alone should be very telling.

Above each pillar are white marble hands. It is interesting to know that formal Masonic attire requires white gloves. One of the hands points upwards, towards the sky. While the official meaning claims that it refers to the act of public discussion and discourse, this hand sign, place in the esoteric context of the artwork, takes on a much more ancient and mystical meaning.

Named the “hand to god”, the “sign of Preservation” or the “hand of the Mysteries”, the sign of the hand pointing upwards can be found in many works of art that bear an esoteric meaning. It appears to be always associated with figures that are seen to possess “knowledge from the gods”.

The classic depiction of Hermes always depicts him pointing towards the heavens. Known as the “messenger of God”, Hermes is a central figure in Masonic lore. He is considered to be the teacher of theurgic sciences, therefore helping humanity ascend towards godhood (the word Hermetism derives from Hermes).

“Plato, an initiate of one of these sacred orders, was severely criticized because in his writings he revealed to the public many of the secret philosophic principles of the Mysteries.” – Manly P. Hall. In this classic depiction of Plato by Raphael, he is pointing upwards – probably because he “initiated” the world to some of the secret teachings of Mystery schools.

This Masonic item for sale at 1stdibs.com features the same hand sign as found in front of the IRS building.

In the context of esoteric teachings, a human pointing towards God can represent the ultimate goal of the Mysteries: Ascending from the state of mere mortal to achieve godhood.

The hand above the other pillar does not point towards the sky, but is rather opened. While pointing towards somewhere means moving into that direction, an opened palm is traditionally associated with “stop” or “halt”.  In Masonic symbolism, the twin pillars are often topped with contrasting symbols (the sun and the moon or globes representing earth and heavens). Could the white hands above the pillars represent the same opposite notions of godhood (pointing towards god) and earthly materiality (halt sign)?

On these Masonic pillars are etched various quotes regarding the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Some of them are quite odd in the context of today, such this one by Barbara Jordan:

“The Bill of Rights was not ordained by Nature or God. It’s very human, very fragile.” Hmmm, that’s … unsettling.

Considering the fact that a bunch of laws blatantly violating the Bill of Rights (notably the First and Fourth Amendment) were enacted shortly after this building was erected, one can ask if this quote wasn’t some kind of a warning. As we see new police-state-style laws violating privacy, free speech and encouraging oppression, we can definitely conclude that the elite views the Bill of Rights as something “very human, very fragile” that can easily be violated. While the above quote can be interpreted as a reminder to not take the Bill of Rights for granted, in the context of its location, it conveys an unsettling message about how it can easily be tampered with … and even disappear. Think I’m going too far? Check out this next piece.

The Pyramid

Between the two pillars is the most recognizable symbol representing the occult elite: A pyramid with a shiny capstone. On the pyramid is written the US Constitution, which famously starts with “We the People”. Looking closer at this sculptures, several questions come to mind.

First, why is the U.S. Constitution etched on a symbol that is associated with occult secret societies whose highest degrees are restricted to “elite men”? Isn’t there a contradiction here? Second, it is somewhat clear that the charcoal-colored base of the pyramid represents the masses (it is written “We the People” right on it), while the shiny, illuminated capstone represents the “illuminated” elite. Isn’t this … elitist? Does the capstone that is standing above the pyramid and the U.S. Constitution mean that the elite is above the law? Finally, why isn’t the Bill of Rights on the pyramid? Is it because it is “very human, very fragile”? Is it considered outdated by the NWO elite? As it is the case for many Sinister Sites described on Vigilant Citizen, this barely noticeable artwork contains an infinitely of dark implications.

 

In Conclusion

In this edition of Sinister Sites, we looked at a relatively small amount of items that nonetheless conveyed a massive amount of symbolism. Far from being merely decorative, the art in front of the IRS building in Maryland describes in a symbolic matter the true source of power behind the American (and world) government, its spiritual and political philosophy, its perception of the masses and so forth. But while the symbolism is unmistakably Masonic, your local front-porch Freemasons have nothing to do with the occult elite. Those in power are part of the highest, hidden levels of the order – what we like to call the Illuminati.

While the IRS doesn’t shy away from collecting money from every single American worker in the United States, the occult symbols in front of its headquarters is not definitely not meant for every single American worker. It is meant to be understood by a very few “select” ones – the same way real power is owned by a very few “select” ones. Why are there symbols associated with secretive and elite groups displayed on buildings that are supposedly public? Isn’t this a contradiction?

While some might say that the true, mystical meaning behind these symbols is not inherently evil, the real upsetting part is that those “in the capstone” are clearly telling us that those at the base of the pyramid are not meant to understand these things. They are meant to be distracted and controlled in order to fund the elite while not causing too much damage … and that’s about it. And the IRS is part of the equation.

Contrarily to the “official” meaning of the pointing hand, no citizen has a say on the policies of these institution or even what they display in front of their building. It is rather those in the capstone that dictate what will happening to “We the People” … even if it means making the Bill of Rights disappear. As the official IRS motto goes: Service plus Enforcement equals Compliance. In short, maybe the finger that is pointing upwards should be the middle one.

    Having the same elements repeated in modern architecture is disturbing. Popstars come and go but these buildings will endure and so will their message. Sad.

    • They Live says:

      The IRS was established by a Nazi, 'nuff said.

    • Bill says:

      "Jebulon" is the name of the "architect of the universe" in masonry. Jehovah, Baal, Osiris.Combined make up their Lucifarien gods name. Absolutely nothing to do with the one true living God! They are making a full court press.

    • Dathon says:

      Sorry Manley P Hall, but ancient Isreal did not use the zodiac nor would they personify the two pillars as Joachim and Boaz. This is a very knostic teaching that took Canaanite and Sumarian culture as their own. The true followers of Jehovah knew well that there was only one true god because they followed the Torah (not to be confused with the Telmud) which are the first 5 books in the modern day bible written by Moses and it does say there that Jehovah's people would not follow astrology, nor follow the stars nor make any other Idols. And when Solomon first built Jehovah's Temple this was the only temple in the ancient world that worshiped one god, a monotheistic religion and the only of it's kind until Emperor Constantine strategically adopted Christianity as his cult on his death bed. Although this was a lie as well, as his brand of Christianity would slowly adopt the same customs as any ancient paigan religion of it's time. So sad.

    I live in Maryland and this is creepy.

  3. Mary-C says:

    You really don't need any NWO symbology present for the IRS headquarters to be considered a "sinister site". Those people are the devil!

    Very unsettling indeed :(

    • doug says:

      the bill of rights was written by man that"s why its fragile because men are all sinners and they fall short of the glory of God,but the 10 commandments was written by God and it is truth.
      therefore do not believe every thing you read here.

      The Pyramid is a witness and a sign that Jehovah God really exists Isaiah 19:19,20

      • Nicolynn says:

        You're very right about that first part, but it diverges from the point of this article. We don't use the Ten Commandments to live by (obviously) and frankly, neither do Christians b/c they were rescued from the law of Moses and saved by grace through faith.

        In reference to the pyramid idea, what they were referencing was actually the temple built by Onias, centuries later. It was built in Heliopolis (city of the sun). If you check a map, you'll see that Heliopolis is on the edge of the Nile River just like Giza (just on the opposite side). Leontopolis was a town within Helio and means city of lions. Onias had the temple built over the former temple for lion goddesses. Since Jesus is the lion of Judah, I'd say it makes sense.

        So pyramids are not of God. They're of the Elite and always have been.

  6. Cisco says:

    It is infuriating to see them passing THIER occult symbols off as OURS. Fucking doublespeak. When did 'we the people' ever decide that this was our symbol? When did they ask us if we wanted Egyptian culture and symbolism meshed in with the identity of our government? When did 'we the people' do that? Fuck them.

    Some skeptics like to bring up the 13 original colonies as the excuse for the emphasis of the number 13 on the dollar bill and elsewhere. But we know this country was founded by the Masons. So, it's no coincidence that there were 13 original colonies.

    • Stephie Giselle says:

      Truth!!! People don't want the truth and are blinded by nonsense.

    • Jim says:

      I don't think the 13 colonies were coincidence at all. It fit their plan perfectly. After having my eyes open to this stuff I have rid my self of all my US Flags. 13 stripes, 50 pentagrams and all. It hurts to see how much we have been duped.

    • GUESTINTHEHOUSEXD says:

      13 colonies……..13 districts. The dystopian future of the hunger games doesn't seem too far off for 'Mercia.

  7. Cheese1 says:

    I want to bring a saying by Muhammad (peace be upon him) to your attention.
    "I warn you of him but there was no prophet but warned his followers of him; but i will tell you something about him which no prophet has told his followers; Ad dajjal is one eyed where as God is not"

    Seeing as we see the infamous all seeing eye at every turn i thought i might share this saying. He's referring to the false messiah, who has been prophecised to appear at the end of time. I know religion isn't mentioned on this site but at certain points i find that it cant be avoided.
    I kindly ask people to refrain from any rude comments and just ponder on what is said.

    • King of kings says:

      Thank you for that . Your mahdi or 12th imam foots the bill too……..there will be many false messiahs and antichrists. I know you enlightened muslims believe Jesus was not God's own son.

      • chewybees says:

        Let's not get too uppity Christian here. Jesus is a construct and image created by the same sinister minds that extort all of the labor value of the American people at the point of a gun. Christian religions just happen to do it at the point of 'god's' finger.

        The bible has been chopped, diced, sauteed and served with fries to a worldwide populace of mentally obese liability passers. No matter what, some religiously devout is going to heaven while we are all going to eternal hell because he happened to "believe" in his churches version of unverifiable hearsay, and the rest of us didn't do it like he wanted.

        This is by no means a choosing of sides between religions, as any institution that uses money as its foundation is not of God in the least. It is of the Lord's, who consider themselves gods, and make sure that the populace of the world pays eternal and complete tribute to their self proclaimed mastery of the occult.

        Times they are a changing. People with an ounce of critical thinking are abandoning the institutions and their herds that have had them running around in the same loop, ever trying to buy their way out their foolish iniquities. All of this so called power of religions, or government agencies like these IRS frauds, is based on the ignorant participation and worship of a mass of people that don't have the brainpower to know otherwise. Rather than read between the lines of tax codes and holy books, the masses follow direction without question, living ever in the world of fear based on some jealous angry dude's eternal vengeance or some jealous angry dude's audit.

    • Mel says:

      You are right r.e. a false messiah! The N.W.O. elites shall make him known in the not too distant future. Those of the N.W.O. have sufficient holographic technology now to make it appear as if a 'messianic' (supernatural) entity is descending from the skies. But this shall surely be a mass delusion perpetrated upon many all over the earth, just as it has been predicted in the New Testament. I do not agree that Muhammad was or is a prophet of Almighty God, but you are correct in your point about the 'one eyed' god. You surely have a right to believe what you will. Just because I do not agree with your view does not make me your enemy! …and I am not! I live in Israel and I can readily see and support the peaceful efforts of Arabs and/or Muslims who live within Israel. Despite their poor treatment by a neo-Nazi style Zionist state, I still can see many Arabs here whom I'd prefer as neighbors to several so-called Jews! I'm for peace and hope without violence.

      • bruce says:

        they are already doing it, its called project blue beam… the only enemy of all human kind, is the elite and their evil agenda, they are evil and they will be eradicated

    • E. Blake says:

      Another point to be made, the BIBLE states worship the creator not the creation, But we have statues (lady liberty), land mark's, tree's and there huggers, etc. etc. etc.
      I think if we step back and take a look a lot of people are traveling a slippery slope.

    • frank says:

      I've found a few things about the Muslim Mahdi and 12th imam, and all that. Islams end times is basically the opposite of Christianity. So my conclusion is that Christianity and Islam are mutually exclusive, not only do you not serve the true God, you are serving his exact enemy.

      • lol says:

        not all muslim believe 12th imam but we do believe Imam Mahdi. there are similarity muslim end times such as christian, Jesus peace be upon him will become leader after the death of Imam Mahdi. Jesus peace be upon him will kill antichrist/Dajjal

    • Diane says:

      I went to a penecost church as a child. I thought then "o my gosh they are lying on God." I never attended another church but I did search the King James Scriptures as well as many other texts that were left out of the Scriptures. I know that Lucifer is the false messiah who will come at the end time. I know that Lucifer has a form of godliness to where if it were possible he would deceive even the very elect. I know what the offspring of cain are. I know that there is no such thing as a rapture. I know that the false ministers deliberately lie to the people for filthy lucre sake. I know about leviathan, known today as the new world order. You are very wrong regarding the scriptures. Yes they are not the original manuscript but a simple breakdown of the scriptures into the language they were written in will expose the truth of the inspired word of God. The English language did not exist at that time so one must see what the Hebrew and Aramaic meaning of the words are. One must understand the symbolisim of the writings. One must understand nature to understand the writings. Above all one must ask to receive. I do believe in the Lord Jesus the Christ. We are in the sixth trump and if we are not prepared mentally for what is going to transpire we will be deceived. We have gone to far to be saved and if The God of Abraham did not love us so…we would not be saved. He and he alone deems us worthy no matter what we believe.

  8. Dr. S says:

    Excellent article on a most deliberately provocative example of "Illuminated" memetic mind control technology.

    Please recall though, that the symbols explained above are at a deeper level references to very real and very disturbing ritual sex magick practices. Pyramid=phallus AND vagina/anus simultaneously. Understand "occluded fist". Understand g-spot squirt scrying. Understand psychedelic semenancy in the context of their perverse tantric rituals.

    Only through understanding the centrality of deviant ritual group sex magick to the "Elite" can humanity have any hope of protecting itself from repeated and remorseless violations of the most perverse sort.

  9. SamV says:

    All the more reason to hate the IRS because buildings such as this become more and more sinister with "elite" information thats stored within its designs as this is truly a very sinister site that hides dark meaning within.

    Oh the false doctrines embedded in the bill of rights as "we" ourselves never wanted anything to do with occult themes and symbols.

    And by the way, a middle finger on that hand makes a lot more sense than the index finger as you clearly concluded this article VC.

    The truth is definitely out there.

  10. Frey says:

    NWO again… But i honestly doubt it'll happen to wipe out the ENTIRE world, or am i underestimating their power…?

  11. Sarah says:

    The main thing I get pissed off about is that you can't put Jesus anything anywhere. However these pagan gods are idolized at every government site when there's supposed to be separation of church and state. Another annoying thing is that it's assumed we are ALL ignorant to their presence and agenda (the illuminati). More people every day are waking up to their treason and corruption. So I'd say their "culling of the herd" is on the horizon.

    • SHAUN says:

      THATS RIGHT SARAH "WE ARE AWAKENING"? And we are waking up very fast indeed.We all know their AGENDA+WHAT THEY HAVE PLANNED FOR HUMANITY? WE ARE ALL BECOMING AWAKE, TOGETHER+UNITED AGAINST THEIR CAUSE.

  12. Finger pointing as above Masons strive to be GODS or they see as they are. Walking all over weaker people,destroying,stealing,cheating,lying,gunning.

  13. Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives.

    I think we're being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and

    I think I'm liable to be put away as insane for expressing that.

    That's what's insane about it.

    I was born and raised in the DC/Maryland area. My aunt actually works works in this building, and has for years. I used to pass it catching the train and bus back and forth to school too. Smh. Its amazing to me how distracted we can be with things that have no meaning or value while the elite control and sway us into thinking that certain things are normal and even acceptable. The world is going where its fated to go. I thank God for Jesus and his word. Great article Vigilant.

    we are the created.. not the creator. Small, ignorant, violent toddlers in the whole of Creation.

    The elite are arrogant and perverse, and no amount of manipulation, exclusion, material wealth, or worldy power can compare to the ABSOLUTE intangible yet universal experience of the true POWER of our Creator. Evil deeds and material fanaticism for fleeting power in hopes to attaining godhood is as blasphemous as it sounds. What a sad existence when you literal have the worlds resources in your hand.

    A truly godlike thing to do with that much power would be to beget cycles for positive human growth and evolution. Not a hellish, destructive, cyclic existence fueled by the ego's fear of losing earthly, illusionary power. There is only ONE true source of power in this realm and ll others.

    All living beings are filled with the electricity of Creation… for without it we would not exist. No thought, no breath, no heart to pump no blood… we would be less than dust, as even a speck of dust is electrically charged. Our human minds can study science, be inquisitive, discover answers for our never ending questions, but we truly cannot comprehend the complexity of our own design. It is His very presence which we cannot touch but feel every waking moment we breathe in His mercy in and exhale His Grace.

  23. Courtmk says:

    Jesse Ventura has a show that exposes all these things. His latest episode showed the elite already have their own pretty much huge bomb shelter to protect thousands of their ppl. After seeing that it is impossible to deny that the illumaniti is real

  24. LoveeCauncey says:

    It's crazy that I go past New Carrollton Station (right across the street from there) and also past that building an have never noticed the symbolism there. I have passed it a billion times and now seeing this article see that building with fresh eyes. It's so easy to hide things out in the open!

  25. Brody says:

    Wow, VC. You really only covered two settings, the pillars and the pyramid, which technically comprise one unified symbol. Yet this was in my opinion the most insightful of your Sinister Sites category. You're awesome; keep up the hard work!

  26. Indonesian says:

    About the representation of the 2 hands, VC wrote:

    1. While pointing towards somewhere means moving into that direction, an opened palm is traditionally associated with “stop” or “halt”.

    2 … white hands above the pillars represent the same opposite notions of godhood (pointing towards god) and earthly materiality (halt sign)?

    These satanic institution clearly has an agenda of distracting the people with the main goal to STOP the people from moving towards the heavens.

    We are blinded by materialism. What will our gathered wealth be any good when we die? Money is just a means to an end. When we die, our wealth will not go with us.

    What are the purposes of living? It is mainly to praise God (Allah). Life should not be seen too seriously because our main objective for life is to do good and praise God so that when we die our souls will go to heaven. The IRS clearly has a concerted effort together with the other elitis institution to ensure people to work hard, earn money that will go back to those elitist organizations, so that people won't have time to praise God as they're busy worrying about the present as well as the future.

    So don't let those satanic institutions take away our path to heaven! Before you pass judgment about Islam, I recommend you to read the Qur'an (first, just browse through it). You can download it for free! If you're using iPhone/iPad, you may search "Al Quran" in the App Store and download the free apps.

    Just give it a try, there's nothing to lose.

    Remember to Open your eyes, mind, and heart.

      • Truthseeker2013 says:

        I also wandered about what is the distraction keeping you from? I have read that since we are electrically existing then to live we need to raise our energy levels higher. One site educate yourself mention that the majority of people resonate around 220 MHz and that is how they keep us there with the distractions. But a person who resonate love is about 500 MHz and if one person is at that level then they can change around 2,00 people energy levels. So to achieve that is awesome. The other thing is if someone can connect with another person at that level the so much joy can be brought into this reality. The other fact that I found interesting is if 100 people know a fact the that is enough to allow humanity to know about it. So with this change of perspective, just what abilities could be brought into existence through the energy that our words have generated.

        Thans VC it is helping and I just wanted to see if there are humans who haven't been toched by any secret society and is known by humans. Most of our leaders from all nationalities in all walks of life have been indoctrinated into the secret society and that means they have a connection of some type to what that person is doing.

    Cisco, Great comments about the 13 original States. Plus, we were all told as kids, that some chick named Betsy Ross stitched them all together. What a coincidence that her 13 starred circle also symbolizes the Mayan Calendar. This is why the original 13 Stars are in this order. I am questioning EVERYTHING about our origins. In fact, in the phrase "We the PEOPLE", the word "People" here may be only referring to the men who actually signed the US Constitution. Blacks Law Dictionary defines "people/person" as a thing or corporation. Nothing is as it seems. Vigilant Citizen, you expose so much so well. I recommend that everyone pass this article and the VC website to all your friends, family members and associates. This is extremely important information.

      You are absolutely correct with your "we the people" comment. This is what is known as capitonym . By capitalizing People you change the meaning. Much like polish and Polish are changed by the capital P. So We the People means the people who signed the document, and their descendants. It does not mean the masses as most people would like to believe.

    To Indonesian I write:

    Islam is the perfect religion. Religion is innocent until someone like you tries to live by it's rules. The rules of Islam force the follower to admit failure. How can you call yourself a Muslim when you don't live by the rules of the teachings in a book you want to believe is from Above? How can you say you follow this way when you fail daily at obeying it's commands. The burden of your failure to comply forces you to either deny the fact that you are not a true follower OR it forces you to redirect your frustration and then causes you to compare your limited spiritual piety with the shortcomings of other would-be seekers. The result is that you fall into the same judgmental pit that every man or woman who claims to be religious falls into. You judge others and hate them because they are not like you or are not as spiritual as you are. The prophet Isa condemns you when He says that before a man or woman can enter the Kingdom of Heaven, that man or woman must be perfect. How then can you say that Islam is the answer when it offers me no help at perfection. It only offers me religion. To this, I say, no thank you.

    • anon says:

      @Rocksteady500

      Err.. I don't know where you got your information from… but Islam doesn't expect perfection from anyone, in fact it fully acknowledges that humans are weak, and offers forgiveness and mercy:

      "Say: "O my Servants who have transgressed against their souls! Despair not of the Mercy of Allah. for Allah forgives all sins: for He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." (39:53)

      "Allah wishes to lighten your (difficulties): For the human was created weak." (Quran: 4 :28)

      How does He lighted our difficulties? By teaching us ways of living that are healthy for us, that bring us to happiness in this world and God's own Company in Paradise. How can you say no thank you to something which you don't even know about?? Islam is not even a religion, given what you seem to define religion as. Why don't you see what Islam has done, using historical proof from non-Muslims, before passing judgments?
      http://www.iera.org.uk/downloads/Islam_war_on_Ter

      Far from being perfect, God gives partial credit – even if we end up doing something wrong and sinning again, for God, it's the thought that counts. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) related a number of incidents where people who were very far from perfect were entered to Paradise by God – a prostitute who was kind to a dog, a murderer who began a journey towards changing for the better but died and never even made it there, and so on.

      Before I am accused of proselytization – let's consider the dangerous times we're living in and consider that for the benefit of humanity, we need to be actively looking for solutions rather than create differences. And actively looking for solutions doesn't include prematurely shutting ourselves off to solutions just because they come from another faith.

    • Logically Speaking says:

      Islam is the perfect religion, and trying to do your best and trying to achieve piety by way of submission to God is the goal of the follower.
      Just because a person fails at obeying the commands does not make it "a burden" nor does it "force you to redirect your frustration then causes you to compare your limited spiritual piety with the shortcomings of other would-be-seekers", in fact it should propel you to work harder to succeed.
      If a baby never overcomes the trial of learning to walk, how will the child ever learn to perfect the art of walking and then graduate to being able to run and then learn gymnastics or ballet. It takes practice and dedication and most importantly it takes learning from failure and trying harder.
      Practicing and genuinely attempting to achieve perfection and peace by attempting to live by the rule's of the perfect religion is the key to the Kingdom of Heaven. Your journey to spiritual piety is between you and the Lord, not between you and the "other would-be-seekers", the only time that the issue of "you judge others and hate them because they are not like you or are not as spiritual as you are"
      And the quote from Jesus (Prophet Isa) is from the Bible not the Quran…. if you're going to attack the Quran at least use a passage from the same book.

      • Logically Speaking says:

        **** Your journey to spiritual piety is between you and the Lord, not between you and the "other would-be-seekers", the only time that the issue of "you judge others and hate them because they are not like you or are not as spiritual as you are" arises, is when you're obviously not dedicated to your goal of working hard to please God.
        Besides, Islam never preaches automatic entry into Heaven by accepting the Faith… It's through good deeds, righteousness, peace, humanity and submission to the will of God (when the Lord says do not lie, then submit by not lying, etc).
        And the quote from Jesus (Prophet Isa) is from the Bible not the Quran…. if you're going to attack the Quran at least use a passage from the same book.

So what do they do? They whine left , right and center!

  32. Yomael says:

    The two pillars of Jochin and Boaz in Freemasonry also represent two gates through which Earth bound spirits descend to be incarnated in human corporal form, and ascend after the death of the body, as immortal formles sentient and individuated energy beings, to dwell in the infinite heavenly realms of the Astral Gods. The northern gate of entrance is called the 'Gate of Man', and the southern gate of exit is called the 'Gate of the Astral Gods'. The field of action between the two gates is the Earth, where the soul is initiated in the mysteries to rise after the death of the body and become as God. This religion of physical death and astral rebirth is an ultra ancient spiritual science created by the 'Anu', the civilization which antedated modern civilization, and its symbolism forms the base of worship for all modern religions, as well as all modern secret societies and mystery schools.

    • FarNorthWeaver says:

      You are sorely uneducated in the basics of the Hermetic Qabalah and in the basis for all modern religions.
      Islam was birthed by the Catholic Harlot when she wanted to sack Jerusalem, but didn't want to be blamed for it.
      The Christian Faith is only a religion when men such as yourself distort it for their own vanity.
      I was a hermetic qabbalist for over 20 years. I gave my life to ChristJesus almost 15 yrs ago.

    The hand holding up the index finger means "One God" or Allah in Islam.

    When you say the shahadah declaration (la illaha illa Allah) you typically hold up one finger: "There is no god but Allah." It's just a symbol to signify the belief of one God, of no idols and the falsehood of paganism.

    But the other hand is saying to STOP believing in one god, I think. It's why these Satanists are waging war on Muslims all over the globe.

  53. almo says:

    "We the People" IS the occult number "13t" which represents "extreme rebellion against constituted authority". We=10-1,

    The=15-6, and Peolpe=33-6. So, 1 plus 6 plus 6 ="13".

    Letters A-I=1-9; Letterd I-R=1-9, and S-Z=1-8.

    26 letters (2 x 13) in English, and in Paleo Hebrew 22 letters (2 x 11).

    When you "decode" all the "masonic words and phrases…you will see "666" over and over and over.

    These "numbers" are ALL in Scripture.

    Also, "YHWH" in Paleo Hebrew is "Yod Hay Waw Hay", and then reverse them in order (Paleo Hebrew is RIGHT to LEFT) wil yield THE Name "Yahwah". YaHWaH).

    So, you readily see that "lord", "god" and "jesus" are NOT the NAME. They are indeed masonic monikers alluding to satan.

    The infamous KJB 1611 left to right is a "9" aka "666".

    Yeshua had NO brother named "James". That is King James who wanted his name in Scripture. The brother of YeshuA was named Ya'akov.

    And THE Covenant was RESTORED, "Shuvah". It is NOT a NEW Covenant. And there are 613 Torah Instructions, NOT 5 MILLION Masonic Laws.

    The "Tares" are all the demon-infested Masonically led "churches". And "SUN day" is "666" day. Sunday is when all the occult worship the "sun".

    Ron (#26 above)

    You are right to question everything about the founding of this country.

    I've been doing so as lately (actually I reached a point a few years back where I finally came to the conclusion that virtually everything I was ever 'taught' in school – with the exception of English and Math- should be regarded as false and that I must therefore re-educate myself).

    When one looks into the Constitution and follow its interpretation over the centuries I believe one will find that it was actually written in a way to trick the people into believing that it stood for 1 thing (in general, freedom) but to the elite it stood for another (control of the masses). There very well could have been some signers of the document and some of the founding fathers who were good men concerned with 'freedom for all' but I have no doubt now that there were alterior motives behind it. After all, if it really promised freedom for all men, why then would there still be slavery in the states?

    As to the pyrimid at the IRS building, notice it's on the Base where one reads the proclamation 'We the People'. It is also the masses who pay all the taxes to the IRS.

    Look at GE for example. That multi-billion dollar corporation (and one of the architects of NAFTA) pays $00.00 in federal taxes! Many other of the giants pay zero in corporate taxes.

    Further, the rich (not the so-called 'rich' who earn $500K a year who Obama wants to further tax, but the RICH who's family wealth is passed down from generation to generation – Pritzkers of Chicago for example) don't pay taxes. They don't 'work' and have never had to work so they pay nothing in income tax as they have no income from work like you and I and the rest of us. Their family monies are hidden in multiple off shore banking accounts where their family and other elite families actually own the banks! See Mitt Romney's plethora of offshore accounts. In another generation his offspring will no longer work and will therefore no longer pay taxes. So the pyramid shows 'we the people' slave to the State and the IRS ensures the State receives their cut and the elite above are not subject to the same rules as us.

  64. kpryan says:

    It is so clear that the Qur'an is the final impediment to the zionist/illuminati cabal's world conquest. True Muslims still believe the teachings of Muhammad. Usury (interest) is EVIL. Modesty is good.

    Were this not a big deal, the US would never have spent billions and billions and billions of paper dollars to invade Iraq and Afghanistan. The phony 'revolutions' of Egypt and Libya would not have been financed by the west. Israel would long ago have been condemned as an Apartheid State and held accountable for their actions.

    We're constantly shown images of the 'Muslim brotherhood' and told 'Hamas' represents the Palestinians… when in truth the MB was created by the Brits and Hamas is an Israeli creation!

    I'm not of the Islamic faith but I have complete respect for those who believe. And my heart goes out to those constantly under physical and psychological assault by my US govt. As an American, am sorry.

These ideas of Godhood/Oneness/Duality are NOT evil. They are the very essence of what most religions teach us. These same symbols are in YOUR sacred Bibles/Koran's and etc. To not acknowledge that the biblical forefathers the Hebrews and their mysticism as being the foundation of your sacred religions is sheer ignorance. I know, i know, it eveil they want to enslave you, but you enslave yourselves by fearing symbols meant to inspire and show us, our true divinity. We are NOT separate from God. There for our divinity is intermingled with all that is around us. Stop being afraid. Dig deeper. Please. "My people perish for lack of understanding"-never a truer word spoken.

    VC & other writers of this site:

    —————————————

    THANK YOU for doing a MAIN PAGE, in depth article, that does Not have to do with celebs/pop culture!! THESE are the kind of articles, that are very informative & deal with other aspects, that I (& others) have been wishing for more of. (NOT saying the pop culture articles Arnt informative, as I've said; I just feel that issue Currently has nothing new to bring to the table) I am glad our voices have been heard! I even learned a couple new things, that let to some further research & finding even some MORE New things; and that is the point. Whatever reason you may be reading; To either get closer to truth, discuss new theories, or simply read about things you may find interesting, regardless: It all is Knowledge which is power!! :) (yes, I realize, a cliche statement; but it's True) I'm VERY pleased to see this article & not another about the pop culture aspect one; I'm hoping others who are attracted to sites like these (for the articles on pop stars/ect) will stop & read/take in all this valuable information while here.

    Yes, it may not be as flashy/filled with pics of celebs & is a bit of a longer & a bit harder of a read, but is ANOTHER Important aspect of a GIANT puzzle that I believe more should DEF be informed about. I also believe looking at the MANY other aspects, like this, will help us all Unveil More: more theories to discuss & even more Truth.

    It does not surprise me in the LEAST that there is a pyramid outside IRS Headquarters; after all it has Always been on our currency, that we see that on a daily basis. But things such as the symbolic nature of twin pillars (Jachin/Boaz) is not only interesting to know/read about; but shows readers WHY "twin pillars" are significant symbolic wise. And showing the deeper history behind things such as this (the pillars are just an example of many other things presented in the article & MANY other things I hope to see more of!), leads people to even do Further research, finding out even more. Yes, the internet is a great place for info; BUT has MUCH disinfo as well, which can create confusion. The LIBRARY/Bookstores are a great (better, iMo) place to find more valid info..though Still even in books (written by PEOPLE, some who ALSO spread disinfo/have their own Agendas/ect..) you still should take it ALL (internet/books; BOTH have much valid info) all with a grain of salt, unless a 100% proven FACT.

    I say, use YOUR OWN WISDOM & NOT blindly take the word of others as Truth. I always say it is GOOD we all (as drastically different People) have differing opinions & theories, and when Discussed Rationally; MORE can be found out working together! Again: THANK YOU VC & Co. for this article. I look forward to seeing more articles addressing the vast other aspects of the Whole Picture, like this one!! :)

    #61, Excalibur;

    Yes, everyone is entitled to their opinion. Your stated opinon is that it is my opinions cause you and others to not move forward.

    Yet you don't take the effort to explain yourself. What opinion(s) did I state that prevent humanity from 'moving forward'? (And, for what it is worth, the Illuminati/Zionist/NWO cabal is eager to move humanity 'forward'. Moving forward is not necessarily a positive. Russians moved forward into the Gulags. Some Jews and others moved forward into the Camps. Americans and most of this world has moved forward into further degeneracy.)

    I have no problem with you calling me out.

    I do have a problem when you don't define what it is that I'm wrong about. It is rather gutless.

    Until then, your comment is simply

  78. kpryan says:

    #68 – Growing Up 31.

    In answer to your question,

    it is the opinion of many that the 16th amendment to the US Constitution wasn't properly ratified (which would mean the 16 th amendment doesn't really exist as part of the Constitution).

    Without the 16th amendment, there is no ability in the Constitution for the US Govt to tax American's earnings.

    There are some other aspects of the original federal tax code that tax protesters point to to claim the IRS does not have the right to tax a citizen's wages or income.

    The protesters are likely correct.

    That being said, very few people in the US today would dare NOT pay their taxes or follow IRS rules and regulations because to do so is folly. Try to argue in front of a federal judge that the 16th amendment wasn't ratified… good luck with that!

    So whether it is truly Constitutional hardly matters now… after all we're to the point in the US where the Federal Govt can lock up an American Citizen WITHOUT due process and keep him or her locked away forever without any recourse whatsoever.

    Detestible! Not that taxes have to be paid, but what it all symbolizes. Fear the government, hoard your money, it's the same Hegelian divide/conquer concept. Don't be fooled – God gave David mililons of dollars to build His temple. God can provide, do not fear the government or the World System. Turn to the Lord. Something will be required of you, but as a result, you will become free.

    The post I made about the chamber inside the pyramid I stole from a document titled "The Revelations of an Elite Family Insider (2005)", which you can search for and download online. When I read that line it jolted me in a positive way: we're all worked up about the elites and their capped pyramids, but inside the pyramid's body (us) is the chamber with its sarcophagus of which dimensions match that of the Ark's.

    Anyway, here's an interesting piece with a spiritual take on the Ark of the Covenant: http://www.spiritofthescripture.com/id790-the-tru

    And here's another one, from the same source, on the Pyramid of Giza:

    who still thinks the 13 still represents 13 colonies now?? that interpretation won't fit in everywhere will it, it seems so apt thirteen this, thirteen that stand for the 13 colonies, lets shut them up with this perfectly plausible explanation. yeah right! Anyway, I guess the idea with these pieces of 'art' was to be esoteric, more than half the people who see it everyday are blind to it's meaning and that's just what the elite wants. the more we content ourselves with just accepting what 'they' tell us, the worse off we are.

  84. Serblack says:

    The Great Lie: This is, my friends, the very core of the Game, the wrold structure we live in. Here we go:

    A long, long time ago, God (please, don't crucify me for mentioning His name, I also have the right to speak my mind) created a bunch of amazing guys. They were mighty, had wings and stuff. He decided to call them Angels.

    One of those Angels, called Lucifer, was the most beautiful of them all. He was so shiny and gorgeous he decided to "be like Daddy", so he convinced some of his buddies to take down God's government and become God himself. But, alas, God kicked their sorry asses so hard they fall to Earth and beyond, thus creating Hell.

    Once he recovered from his wounds, he was mad as fuck. "Why Daddy, why? I just wanted to be like you!" he said. "Alright, I'll make you pay for what you did to me, your most beautiful creation, by fucking the lives of those filthy, stupid humans you seem to love so much".

    And so the Game began. Lucifer told humans the ultimate lie, and we humans believed it blindly: that we can become gods, even bigger and stronger than God Himself. This is the way our world goes by, making God a mere human, and humans gods.

    Do not swallow their lies.

  85. Disgusted says:

    I find it disgusting that our government can not only build a buiding like this but then thumb their noses at us saying,"Look what we made you pay for!". Adorning taxpayer built government buildings with any type of ritualistic symbolism is beyond disgusting. I certainly don't want any of my tax dollars promoting this sort of ugly, creepy shit.

    All of you comment on these posts with the same redundant responses to these articles. VC has become something of a sports broadcaster. He tells you what is taking place play by play. And us, the audience just watch with mere excitement and disgust. Saying, "Oh how terrible!! New World Order!" "Wait till Jesus comes back". "These people are satanists!" And it is quite prevalent you love to call people sheepeople. Which, is the same mindset "they" dwell in. I don't see any of you coming together. Only merely getting your kicks on this website. You honor and applause VC for his work. Yet non of you seem to be becoming more than just spectators of life and what "sinister" things are taking place. I see not one post that encourages critical thinking. Just, "here's more illuminati symbolism."

    So my question is, and not in a demeaning way, what are WE really doing to better OUR world and the people in it instead on focusing on the dark elements?

    It just seems that this website is tired and old. Not really going beyond and finding solutions to the worlds problems. Just commenting on the Bread And Circus.

    Great article, as someone who is very aware of symbols since youth, having a father who studied freemasonry and occult symbolism, just seeing the photo (without even reading) gave me a sense of dread. I pray that those of us of the Abrahamic religions will band together in our common shared beliefs. We are under assault by the Adversary, the Satan, and the Elite who eagerly embrace its control, thinking they have attained power, while just tools to be disposed of when aims are completed. The elite, and those who embrace the Satan, are seeking to turn all of us (religious or not) against one another, focus on our differences, and destroy each other. Their mass media brainwashing, their control over territories, and support of mass poverty and disease, is all in hope we will give up our belief in G-d, and destroy ourselves, in absolute despair. Less work for them to do in the end, if most of us destroy ourselves, first. They are smiling smugly, and using our own fears daily in life, making our lives difficult, to distract from our love of G-d. Stay vigilant, aim for the good, love your Creator, and stand strong, together with others who understand the truth and want no part of the lie.

    Explain to me how teaching/instructing "oneness" is on the same level as teaching/instructing "duality" or "godliness"?

    Explain to me how subtle, dualistic, symbolic psychology force fed onto un-aware general populations is ok?

    I am not God nor am I am not aware of his dualistic tendencies so I can't really group those two concepts with oneness and in fact, all media pretty much promotes dualistic or selfish ideals. Everything I observe in nature tells me whatever their spin on ancient mysteries is, it is intentionally trying to lead people away from oneness.

    I get what you are trying to say but…again, you seem to have read too much into the past and not enough into the present. The collection, preservation and prohibition of knowledge that could enlighten everything living is wrong. You know it is.

    "Why do the heather rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the eart set themselves,

    and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against His anointed, saying, let us break

    their bands asunder, and cast away their cords form us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh; the Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall He speak unto them in His wrath, and vex them with sore

    displeasure. Yet have I set my King upon my holy hill of Zion. I will declare the decree; the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel. Be wise now therefore, o ye kings; be instructed, ye judges of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son lest He be angry, and ye perish from the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in Him." Psalm 2

    The capstone (cornerstone) on the pyramid is man's work on the Pyramid of Giza, that same Pyramid referenced in Isaiah 19:19 as an Altar of Witness. The Pyramid of Giza has no capstone, deliberately so. The lectures of Gene Scott on this subject are useful. Psalms 118, Matthew 21 and Ephesians 2 all have reference to corner stones and chief cornerstones that the BUILDERS rejected.

    The pyramid with capstone, in this case, represents the usurpation of authority from The Lord referenced in Isaiah 19:19.

    Finally Jesus was initiated into the Order of Archelaus – probably by Archelaus himself incognito as a vagabond and fugitive named John (the Baptist). That initiation ritual (dunking) still goes on today…

    The finger pointing to the sky is a symbol of enlightenment according to Leonardo. It is even found in the Last Supper painting. It is key to understanding the journey of the Magi and what happened to the gold – that being Jesus' prepaid tuition into the mystery schools when he reached the age to travel to Egypt and Babylon to study.

  130. Erik says:

    This makes sense to me. I believe that the "We the People," that seems just cliche today, means that ultimately no matter the plans of the ruling elite it was "We the People" that helped them do it. We only have ourselves to blame. The Constitution is not what people think it is. It is a lie. A constitution produces constitutors. A constitutor in civil law is a person who promised by a simple pact to pay the debt of another; and this is always a principal obligation. We are also not a party to the CONstitution. "But, indeed, no private person has a right to complain, by suit in court, on the ground of a breach of the Constitution, the Constitution, it is true, is a compact but he is not a party to it" (Padelford, Fay & Co. vs. The Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Savannah. 14 Georgia 438, 520). Everything we have been told is a lie.

    Verify all of these facts for yourself…don't just take my word for it.

    1. The IRS is not a U.S. Government Agency. It is an Agency of the IMF.

    2. The IMF is an Agency of the UN.

    3. The U.S. has not had a Treasury since 1921.

    4. The U.S. Treasury is now the IMF.

    5. The Attorney General of the U.S. is not employed by the U.S. But is an Agent of INTERPOL which is head quartered in Lyons, France.

    6. The United States does not have any employees.

    7. Social Security Numbers are issued by the UN through the IMF.

    8. There are no Judicial courts in America and there has not been since 1789. Judges do not enforce Statutes and Codes. Executive Administrators enforce Statutes and Codes.

    9. There have not been any Judges in America since 1789. There have just been Administrators.

    10. According to the GATT you must have a Social Security number.

    11. You are an "Institutional Unit" in which your body and labor are pledged to the UN through the IMF.

    12. We have One World Government, One World Law and a One World Monetary System.

    13. Your Social Security number is your slave number. Just about everyone in the World has a Social Security number from the UN through the IMF.

    14. The UN is a One World Super Government.

    15. No one on this planet has ever been free. This planet is a Slave Colony. There has always been a One World Government. It is just that now it is much better organized and has changed its name as of 1945 to the United Nations.

    16. New York City is defined in the Federal Regulations as the United Nations. Rudolph Gulliani stated on C-Span that "New York City was the capital of the World" and he was correct.

    17. Social Security is not insurance or a contract, nor is there a Trust Fund.

    18. Your Social Security check comes directly from the IMF which is an Agency of the UN.

    19. You own no property, slaves can't own property. Read the Deed to the property that you think is yours. You are listed as a Tenant.

    20. The most powerful court in America is not the United States Supreme Court but, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania.

    GUESS WHO AND WHAT OWNS YOU AND THE UNITED NATIONS ?

    As a matter of fact the imagined President, imagined Representatives, imagined Senators, imagined Supreme Court Justices and imagined Federal Judges are not paid by the United States Government. Actually the United States Government does not have any employees They are paid by the International Monetary Fund in electrons. You see there is no such thing as the United States Government. In reality there are no Governments. There are Corporations (Fictions) such as the Federal Reserve Inc., and the United States Inc., which in fact are private corporations. The United States Inc., is just a slave management company. Guess what that makes you? If you said property, you are correct! You are Human Capital. The shares that were issued for the Federal Reserve when it was created back in 1913 only cost $100.00. That was quite the bargain.

    From aerial view the building and the parking structure have the layout of a half circle (11-5 o'clock). At the center of the circle is the Great New Zion Church 5005 78th Avenue, Maryland, United States. Focus on the center is emphasized by walkways extending from each pillar (4 o'clock) that converge towards the center. Do this resonate with anything?

    Also, any significance with the sculpture on the corner of Harkins and Ellin? It is somewhat reminiscent of the caduceus. From aerial view it appears to be a circle on the outside of an ellipse which makes me think of planetary motion and Kepler.

  134. Jacob says:

    World Peace—Why So Elusive? The Bible’s answer

    Human efforts to bring world peace have failed and will continue to fail for several reasons:

    - “”It does not belong to man who is walking even to direct his step.”” (Jeremiah 10:23)
    Humans weren’t created with the ability or the right to rule themselves, so they won’t be able to achieve enduring peace.

    - “”Don’t put your trust in human leaders; no human being can save you. When they die, they return to the dust; on that day all their plans come to an end.”” (Psalm 146:3, 4, Good News Translation)
    Government leaders, even those with the best motives, can’t devise lasting solutions for the root causes of war.

    - “”In the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here. For men will be . . . fierce, without love of goodness, betrayers, headstrong, puffed up with pride.”” (2 Timothy 3:1–4)
    We live in “”the last days”” of the present wicked world, a time when prevailing attitudes make peace difficult.

    - “”Woe for the earth and for the sea, because the Devil has come down to you, having great anger, knowing he has a short period of time.”” (Revelation 12:12)
    The Devil, God’s enemy, has been confined to the vicinity of the earth and motivates people to adopt his vicious spirit. As long as he is “”the ruler of this world,”” we can never live in peace.—John 12:31.

    - “”[God’s Kingdom] will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms [that oppose God], and it itself will stand to times indefinite.”” (Daniel 2:44)
    God’s Kingdom, not any human government, will satisfy our desire for permanent world peace.—Psalm 145:16.

    No…the word People has a capital "P". This makes it a proper noun. They mean ONLY the People who are in their little club. If it meant the pronoun of the people on the land it would be a lower case "p".

    You people need to learn a thing or two.

    The IRS was created through the Social Security Act August 14, 1935 Title VIII. What most people don't know is that it is voluntary…..people can withdraw…they have a form. Old age and people on disability can't withdraw without returning the benefits. When you receive the benefits of "social insurance" you will have to pay the liability. The liabilities being graduated income tax, real property taxes through your county codes, excise taxes, sales taxes, fines, fees, insurance. It is the ignorance of the people that has bound them and that we find this country in such a dire situation.

    Strange indeed, but it seems there's more left unsaid, than said. For example, what specifically is bad about the symbolism? There seems to be a lot left dangling in mid-air, with a wink and a nudge, and a "ya know what I mean" about a lot of the symbolism, but no real explanations about the "sinister" meaning and purpose, especially erected here, in the halls of the beast itself. Is this Christian fear mongering about alchemical mysteries misunderstood, or is there real substance to be gleaned from what you've discovered? Hermes was a Greek god, he was the god Mercury to the Romans, also known as Odin by the Germanic tribes, he was part of an astrological pantheon, and a well understood force, before the Christians started killing everyone and destroying everything.

  141. Paul H says:

    Humans amaze me in that they are so concerned about their personal welfare and yet are unaware, to a psychotic level, the suffering they impose on other living creatures for selfish, sensuous and obscene purposes.

    Why should we expect better treatment from those of higher ability or who have an "upper hand"?

    Until we awaken and act with realistic maturity and decency in our treatment of other living beings, the complaints I observe resemble little more that babble.

    Isn't what Hermes is carrying… A health care logo or something?

    So hold on…. who really created the UN?

    What is with the script: "We The People" ? Why did they scribble it right on the side of the pyramid?
    Does this mean, they OWN us, the People? … OR they call themselves, "the People" ?

    "Service plus Enforcement equals Compliance"

    And yet they still presume to believe they have the power to defeat God the Creator, and his prophecy. The tax collectors by use of weapons of the IRS will be thrown into the Lake of Fire and Brimstone, by their arch-enemy: Christ of Nazareth. And you should understand that the "Illuminati" are indeed opposed to Christ and are preparing for war against him and the forces of the true Light. As an aside, the issue of the Illuminati being "enLIGHTened" and having use of the Light, actually referrs to *harnessed* light. Electricity to fuel their earthly civilization. Light imprisoned. They are *opposed* to "free" Light and will not overrule Judgement Day as they think they can and are in fact attempting to do.

    We briefly studied body language in my communication and culture class in college. We watched a video on a woman talking about when people raise their hands to oath in court. If the hand is stretched out and straight it usually means that person is willing to give out the whole truth and nothing but the truth, whereas if they were to slightly cup their hands it means that they will tell the truth but will withhold certain information that may have a negative impact on their judgement.

    Says a lot about the cupped hand on the striped pillar, eh? :)

  148. Bill says:

    The open hand symbol could also be seen to represent the passive stance we all take to simply take the sadism done to us by the IRS. We "take it" without questioning it, but the poor or rebellious who don't pay taxes have people show up at their homes with guns. In this dado-mascochistic relationship, our minds and hearts become dominated.

    To be free of this, we can think critically and freely, understand the expansive intelligence of Life, that consciousness is brilliant and cognizant, and that we can be kind to others. We don't need religion to see this. Just wake up and cultivate awareness.

  149. David says:

    IRS only created via the Federal Reserve as an interest payment for the debt fiat money the Fed loans out to us. And we all put up with it because putting 1 and 1 to make 2 is just too much for the American people. Interesting article about the meaning of this sinister structure. Good work.

  150. phaedris says:

    I would think that the hands symbolize the saying: "Never let the right hand know what the left hand is doing" or something to that effect…

    read Isaiah 19:19 in that day there will prove to be an altar to Jehovah in the midst of the land of Egypt , and a pillar to Jehovah besides its boundary 20: and it must prove to be for a sign and for a witness to Jehovah of armies in the land of Egypt ———————————.
    (Pyramid) is proof that God exists

    • doug says:

      furthermore the white top part of the Pyramid is Jesus when he returns to earth then he will rule over mankind.

  152. doug says:

    now the sign of David is in fact a Pyramid, with a upside down Pyramid on top in side of the same Pyramid( you will then find the sign of David )

  153. doug says:

    I suspect there is a religious group that is involved with the U S Gov. they want to establish a new world order,with only one religion world wide and only one world Government.
