№ 57. Denver International Airport (DEN)

3. DIA conspiracy theories versus actual conspiracies

PAGE STATUS: This page was very important to me in the beginning when I first took my focus off what happened in 3100 BC and began exploring the idea that we may actually be living in the end time. In fact, I was fascinated by the Denver International Airport and flew there more than once to see it and study the murals in person. Nevertheless, I stopped working on this page rather abruptly over two years ago for two reasons. The first is that it requires an ungodly amount of time. The second reason is that my interest in the subject was exploding and there were other things I wanted to study. I never got back to this page to finish it. Nowadays, that DIA is what I routinely characterize as the “reception center” for the vault profound a highly symbolic 40 miles away in the Front Range is painfully obvious to me. Along with the Cheesman dam (their water supply), DIA is one of the two most important “end time infrastructure” projects in the Denver metropolitan area. If you are new to the subject, I understand your facination but realize DIA is only a small part of a much bigger picture. There are more important things to learn about. In that sense, figuring out DIA is child’s play.

It’s a reception center for Virgil’s “vault profound”

You cannot fully understand this page without also reading Virgil’s “Vault Profound” in Denver, Colorado, which discusses the extensive underground tunnel system in the Pikes Peak granite batholith in the Front Range, some forty miles to the west of Denver International Airport. The two are indeed connected. DIA is the reception center for those underground tunnels.

Many readers find their way to my work through this page. If you are one of them, Welcome!

I am more than a little sure that if you really want to understand the murals at DIA and the artist responsible for creating them, that you have arrived at the right page.

This is the mother load of DIA conspiracy theory information

Though at times very tedious, I am reviewing every single “conspiracy theory” about the Denver International Airport (DIA). This puts me in the awkward position of “debunking” most of what is being said about the airport in this regard. I must do this because I know perhaps better than anyone else that DIA is the reception center for a massive underground tunnel system in the 1.08 billion year old Pikes Peak granite batholith commonly referred to as the Front Range in Denver Colorado. On this website, I refer to that tunnel system as the “vault profound.” The Roman poet Virgil wrote about it over 2,000 years ago. The tunnel boring machines that made these granite tunnels possible were invented less than 200 years ago, but the progeny of Jove chose the Denver, Colorado location at least 2,600 years ago. It is the most perfect location on the entire planet planet to survive the coming axial tilt, or so they think. You can read about it on the № 11. Virgil’s “Vault Profound” in Denver, Colorado page and throughout this website.

The underground rail system at the Denver International Airport is connected to the Pikes Peak Batholith, which is one of the most unique granite batholiths in the world. What I call the “progeny of Jove” have drilled an extensive underground tunnel system into this batholith to survive the coming axial tilt. The Freemasons refer to this granite tunnel system with their “G” symbolism.

The Latin poet Virgil refers to it as the “vault profound.” Here it is worth noting that the official airport code for the Denver International Airport is not DIA. It is DEN. Get it? The DEN and the Virgil’s “vault profound” are one and the same thing. This location was decided upon thousands of years ago and was preserved in a more or less pristine state until the end times. To understand why (from a geological perspective), what makes the Pikes Peak Batholith the most perfect place in the entire world to survive the coming axial tilt, you must read № 11. Virgil’s “Vault Profound” in Denver, Colorado.

If you are visiting for the first time and are unfamiliar with my work, the progeny of Jove are discussed on the Progeny of Jove page.

DIA conspiracy theories versus actual conspiracies

The progeny of Jove have purposely mired this airport in controversy. They are using “conspiracy theories” as camouflage. The immediate need for this distraction was to divert attention away from construction costs and irregularities. This is why I have so little patience with people such as Jesse Ventura who are playing into their hands. All of this is a game until they slam those tunnel doors closed because when they open them again, we will be gone.

The elements clearly intended to fuel the “conspiracy theory” fire and thereby cloak the real conspiracy are:

  • “Notre Denver” (the Gargoyles)
  • The Leo Tanguma Murals
  • The Freemason “capstone”
  • The Blue Mustang Statue (“Blucifer” with its eyes glow red at night1)
  • The inscrutable phrases and symbols in the granite floor tiles

You certainly don’t need an active imagination to note some of the airport designers’ unusual flourishes.

In the following sections, I divide the conspiracy arguments into three groups. The first group is labeled simply B.S. DIA CONSPIRACY THEORIES (theories being the key word). This is my debunking. Mostly it is a failure on the part of the writer to do proper research. People are mouthing what everyone else is saying without verifying their facts. That is a very common trap on the Internet. The second group is labeled MARGINALLY IMPORTANT AND SUGGESTIVE OF A DIA CONSPIRACY. And the third group is labeled MONUMENTAL DIA CONSPIRACIES. There is actually a fourth group labeled UNDEVELOPED OR UNFINISHED (and therefore as yet uncategorized) DIA CONSPIRACIES. This is just unfinished work. As of this writing, most conspiracies or conspiracy theories are in this last group because I have not worked on this page in ages. But you may find some useful notes in these incomplete sections.

DIA is like the Pentagon on 9/11. You can get lost in the details of the hole in the side of the Pentagon not being anywhere near large enough for a jumbo jet, the fact that there was no plane debris, the impossibility of even a professional airline pilot steering a jumbo jet into the side of that building, etc., etc., etc., or you can just realize that a jumbo jet cannot fall from the sky in the middle of the day in a major metropolitan area with millions of people walking around with cell phone cameras without someone snapping at least one picture. Likewise, DIA is all about the location (next to Pike’s Peak granite), the scale of everything, and when it was built. It is not about gargoyles, murals, a Freemason capstone, or “Blucifer”

Blue Mustang (Blucifer)

Surely something macabre must be hidden in those billions of extra dollars; its city-scaled expanse; all those mysterious, unmarked buildings and extra hangars?

“Denver International Airport is twice the size of Manhattan and is the second largest public works project in the world, second only to the Chunnel linking England and France.”

If you just want to watch another conspiracy video, I will provide the best of class (as usual) here. But I warn you, they are all saying the same thing, over and over again, and a lot of it is embarrassingly wrong. I do not make videos. I tried. I’ve made a total of five as of this writing. They are too time-consuming. However tedious it may be for the younger generation, learning on this website requires reading. But I do admire talented video producers. That is why I spend countless hours finding the best YouTube videos for my readers. I just cannot do it myself. Nor would I subject myself to YouTube editorial control. That is out of the question.

An Atlas Obscura article entitled reported,

Whether all the talk of conspiracy at DIA remains earthbound, people are definitely trying to get a closer look at what’s going on from above. The biggest issue with the airport over the last few months has been the presence of unauthorized recreational drones. In one case, a drone flew within 500 feet of an aircraft. Drone users aren’t supposed to fly within five miles of the airport, and no higher than 400 feet, but there have been 17 close calls in 2015, 10 of which were actually in DIA’s airspace. The airport is currently creating a group to address the drone issue.

> How Denver Airport Became the International Hub of Conspiracy Theories by Abbie Mood, October 19, 2015


“Debunking” is a term I loath, one I intend to add to page № 2. Conspiracy theories, flat Earth redux, and the propaganda of mass conformity because it is clearly being used in the same manner as “conspiracy theories” to suppress critical thinking. Nevertheless, some of the DIA conspiracy theories are complete bullshit. As noted above, this is deliberate. The “noise” of B.S. DIA conspiracy theories is being harnessed to distract the public from the actual conspiracies, by which I mean the obvious, inexplicable facts about DIA such as the highly symbolic 54 square mile footprint that expose the airport as end-time infrastructure built on an otherwise inexplicable scale. It is therefore critically important to set the record straight, to expose or “debunk” these conspiracy theories so that we can focus on what is real.  

19, 1994 ≠ 33

This capstone is completely meaningless, a fact the Freemasons made sure everyone understood my dating it three days before March 22 (322). The Denver International Airport is the work of the bankers, not the Ћinkers. Understanding the difference between these two factions of the progeny of Jove is essential to your understanding of what is happening in the world right now.

The date on the “Dedication Capstone” does not equal 33. I know how these people think and there is no precedent whatsoever for adding together all of the digits in a date. And for adding just the date and year (excluding the month)? That is a preposterous suggestion. In the past, if the progeny of Jove wanted to express 33 in such a date, the dedication would have been on March 3, such as is found on the seal of the U.S. Department of the Interior. Had they waited three days, the dedication could have been on March 22, the same date on which the Georgia Guidestones were unveiled.

I am usually pretty good with progeny of Jove dates. I cannot do anything with this one except to note that—according to OnThisDay.com—on March 19, 1937, “Astronomer Fritz Zwicky publishes his research on stellar explosion in which he coins the term ‘supernova’ and hypothesizes that they were the origin of cosmic rays.” If you look above at the dedication stone, you will see the dedication date is chiseled below the Freemason Square and Compasses and that one of the compasses is pointing to the “arch” (as in Royal Arch Freesonss) in March, which would make this interpretation of the significance of “March 19” perfect in every respect. However, I am having difficulty confirming the date of this publication. The timing is at least right. Fritz Zwicky discovered the first supernova in NGC 4157 on February 16, 1937. March 19, 1937, was 31 days later (giving him enough time to write the article in question), but I cannot for the life of me find the publication to which OnThisDate.com is referring. I’ve written to them asking for help. 

Here I feel compelled to also note that DIA was opened to the public on February 25, 1995, almost exactly 58 years after Zwicky discovered the first supernova. That number 58 is discussed at great length at the top of page № 58. Virgil’s “Vault Profound” in the Front Range

The real issue here, however, is why is this a “capstone” and not a cornerstone? The answer is clearly that this slab of granite is meant to stir controversy. It was intended to fuel the “conspiracy theory” fire, to divert attention away from the monumental, real-life conspiracies that surround the Denver International Airport. The sad part is that the Freemasons are a thing of the past. They are what I call a headless corpse, and they have been since before Stapleton International Airport existed. Everyone in this picture is being used.

DIA is 25 miles from Denver, Colorado

The shallowness of this argument irks me. At 26 miles, Dulles International Airport is even further from Washington D.C. and for the same reason. Planes are loud. They also crash, so building busy International airports close to cities is not smart. Besides, there is an airport rail line now between downtown and the airport, the A line.

The “New World Airport Commission” never existed

It did exist, which is funny because even the official Denver International Airport website includes a permanent conspiratorial page which lists this as “Conspiracy #1.” 


Naturally. People think this because a dedication marker and plaques around the airport claim it was funded by “The New World Airport Commission.”

Never heard of them? Don’t feel left out–it seems no one has. After some digging, it was discovered that no such group exists. Not now. Not when the airport was built. Not ever. So rather than writing it off as nothing, people have jumped to the conclusion that it is actually a group within the New World Order.

Sketchy, sketchy.


Here is an actual screenshot.

Yet on the Westword (a neighborhood in Denver, Colorado) website, journalist Jared Jacang Maher explains

No one has bothered to call Charles Ansbacher, now the conductor of the Boston Landmarks Orchestra, which gives free classical concerts at public landmarks around the Boston area. But as the co-chair of the now-defunct New World Airport Commission, which orchestrated DIA’s opening festivities, Ansbacher would be a prime candidate for the conspiracists’ Illuminati puppet master. Back in 1990, the longtime arts advocate was living in Denver and working as an aesthetic design-policy advisor for DIA when he decided to start a not-for-profit organization that would help promote the new airport to the people of Denver, and enlisted big-name corporate and civic names to serve on the board.

Ansbacher can’t quite remember how he came up with the name for the organization, but he guesses it might have come from Dvorák’s New World Symphony. The New World Airport Commission name emphasized that DIA was the newest airport in the world, and the first new airport built in this country since Dallas/Fort Worth in 1973, he says; it did not symbolize that DIA was a monument to the New World Order. “The idea that there is anything secretive about this is totally preposterous,” Ansbacher says.

The group’s main function was to plan both an air show and a public gala in 1993, which went on despite the fact that the airport was delayed. He was there the day the capstone, which is also a time capsule, was dedicated. The Masonic symbol was placed on the stone because it was provided by a local Masonic lodge. “One of the remaining things they do is provide time capsules,” he points out.

Westword.com, DIA Conspiracies Take Off by Jared Jacang Maher, August 30, 2007

So if there is any New World Order Commission conspiracy, it is why the official DIA website does not bother to correct this simple mistake. It’s not like they don’t know any better.

DIA officials are on record as having said the same thing.

…As for the “new world” designation, the New World Airport Commission was simply a group consisting of local business and political leaders who sponsored and organized a number of pre-opening events at Denver International Airport. The airport was to usher in a new era making Denver a world-class city, thus the New World name. The group has absolutely no association with the new world order.

Steve Snyder, Public Affairs Office in an email to Greg Ericson dated October 16, 2003 and posted on the ConCen.org website

[The New World Order Commission is] actually the New—World Airport Commission…It was designed by a planning and advocacy group consisting of local business and political leaders. The group had absolutely no association with the ‘New World Order’.

A spokeswoman for the DIA, “The airport that launched a thousand conspiracy theories” in The Telegraph by Oliver Smith, updated March 4, 2015

The other thing that doesn’t help us is that the inscription on the stone says ‘New World Airport Commission.’ And people rightly say that that doesn’t exist. Well, that’s because it doesn’t exist. But it did exist in 1994. It was a group that was celebrating the opening of the airport. It’s written a little wonky. It’s supposed to read ‘The New comma World Airport Commission.’ It doesn’t help because it says ‘New World’ right there.

Denver International Airport media-relations chief Heath Montgomery quoted on the Thrillist.com website in an article entitled How the Denver Airport Became an Icon of the Illuminati by Colin St. John, October 31, 2017

And here is more from the same Thrillist.com article.

“With the sort of pomp that might have been befitting the completion of one of the great pyramids, a time capsule was lowered beneath the floor of Denver International Airport yesterday and topped with a ceremonial capstone,” wrote Robert Kowalski in The Denver Post, also on the day after the event. Kowalski slyly poked fun at the oft-delayed and costly project with his remarks, before going on to refer to the New World Airport Commission, writing it just so, without the comma Montgomery mentioned. Kowalski’s article did, however, quote Charles Ansbacher, the New World Airport Commission’s chairman.

In 2007, three years before his death, Ansbacher attempted to explain the commission’s moniker in an interview with local alt-weekly Westword. [see above] He couldn’t remember exactly why it was named something that, for many, conjures images of an authoritarian elitist takeover, but he suspected it was a dual reference, both to DIA being the newest airport in the world and to Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9, popularly known as the “New World Symphony.”

“The idea that there is anything secretive about this,” said Ansbacher, who was a conductor, “is totally preposterous.”

Thrillist.com, How the Denver Airport Became an Icon of the Illuminati by Colin St. John, October 31, 2017

So now it cannot be any clearer that the New World Order Commission did exist, but that does not mean the presence of “New World Order” on a Freemason “capstone” in the main terminal—when taken into consideration with the Gargoyles in suitcases, Leo Tanguma’s murals, and “Blucifer”—was not intended to deliberately provoke conspiracy theorists and create a noise that would drown out much more serious rumors that construction workers were spreading about extensive underground tunnels.

The contents of the time-capsule underneath the capstone are supposedly known.

(I wrote to the DIA people and asked what was in the time capsule. They replied,

“The time capsule contains, among other things:

Photos of Coors Field and an autographed opening-day game ball

Indian prayer baskets representing Native American culture and indigenous peoples

Black Hawk casino tokens

A piece of the DIA roof

A Stapleton International Airport history book

Newspaper articles about DIA’s opening day

Coins from the Denver Mint

Jeppesen flight charts

Mayor Wellington Webb’s sneakers

And from the Thrillist.com article cited above:

[Former Mayor Wellington Webb] …did not reply to a request for a comment. His sneakers — made famous during his first campaign — are preserved inside the time capsule, along with a ball from the first Colorado Rockies game, a viewer’s guide to Beavis and Butthead, a flight book from Denver’s previous airport, and other mid-’90s ephemera.

[Incorporate into above]


There is a dedication marker in the airport inscribed with the words “New World Airport Commission”. It also is inscribed with the Square and Compasses of the Freemasons, along with a listing of the two Grand Lodges of Freemasonry in Colorado. It is mounted over a time capsule that was sealed during the dedication of the airport, to be opened in 2094.

Wikipedia, Denver International Airport

The dedication marker does not say “New World Order Airport Commission.” It says “New World…” (See The “New World Airport Commission” never Existed on the № 31. Denver International Airport (DIA) page for a detailed discussion.) By the time the airport opened in the mid 1990s, the Freemasons were what I call a “headless corpse.” The progeny of Jove had already morphed into the CIA in 1947 and became an “Unnamed Entity” in 1977 (see The Very Public Countdown to 2017 for a discussion). Whenever the progeny of Jove morph into a new organizational entity, they take with them the knowledge of the end times from which they derive their real strength. So why even bother? Beyond the tradition of Freemasons laying a cornerstone (which this is not) for new buildings, I his dedication marker is more like a shrine for Freemasonry in its heyday.


The New World Airport Commission did exist

In the March 20, 1994 article, J.R. Moehringer, the correspondent on the scene for The Rocky Mountain News, groused about the two-hour length of the commemoration and the Masonic rituals involved. He also threw this red meat at would-be conspiracists: “Some of the hundreds of Masons on hand seemed surprised to learn that Mayor Wellington Webb is Brother Webb,” a reference to the then-mayor’s membership in the organization. “Yet there he stood in his white apron, traditional garb of the Grand Lodge of Free Masons,” wrote Moehringer.

The Queen of England is buying property in Colorado

And so did other members of the British royal family. Supposedly she purchased this property “secretly,” “under an alias,” or “by proxy.” So one has to wonder how anyone would ever know she bought the property in the first place. I should think disclosing the source of this revelation would be of paramount importance, newsworthy even. This is rank Internet nonsense.

Alex Christopher may be solely responsible for the rumor.

Miner’s cart

Au Ag is a biological weapon

This is sheer madness. The progeny of Jove are not this clever. It would be beneath them. As the story goes, even though this engraving in the marble floor at DIA is clearly a miner’s cart, the “Au Ag” on the side of the cart is a scientific abbreviation for Australia antigen, which is going to be weaponized and used to kill everyone in the world (except the rich people underground in Denver, Colorado). Well, Au Ag is in fact sometimes used as a scientific abbreviation for Australia antigen, but the proper scientific abbreviation of Australia antigen is HBsAg, for Hepatitis B antigen.

Here is a brief historical account of the Australia antigen and its discoverer Baruch Samuel Blumberg:

American physician and researcher Baruch Blumberg, MD, PhD (1925-2011), was interested in how genes could influence susceptibility to disease. He traveled the world collecting and studying blood samples from different populations. With a new lab technique, he matched a protein found in the blood of an Australian aborigine with an antibody in the blood of a hemophiliac from the United States. He called the protein the “Australia antigen.”

Blumberg and others were able to connect the presence of the antigen with hepatitis B infection. The Australia antigen proved to be the hepatitis B virus (HBV) surface protein. Later they related HBV infection to liver cancer.

The Australia antigen circulates in the blood of a previously infected person not only as part of HBV, but also as a small, independent particle. The discovery of the Australia antigen had an important effect on the study of hepatitis B, in large part because HBV cannot be cultivated in the lab. The Australia antigen could, therefore, serve as a model for the virus as a whole. Moreover, the Australia antigen provided a source for antigen for the vaccine.

Blumberg would win the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1976 for his work on hepatitis B.

History of Vaccines

You see, the discovery of Australia antigen was a good thing. It was used to find a cure for hepatitis B. It is not a biological weapon. And the American physician and geneticist who discovered it was born in Brooklyn. He was never a rich man and he most certainly was not a financial backer for the Denver International Airport.

So what does a miner’s cart full of silver and gold have to do with an airport? What’s the real story here?

Mining in early Colorado was used as a cover operation to explore and confirm the existence of the Pikes Peak Batholith in Colorado. I had at one time historical documentation of a military geographical expedition into the Colorado Rockies in the 1880s in which everyone, from the Calvary officers down to the lowly cooks, were Freemasons. I’ve searched and searched and searched to find it again and I will continue to do so. One of the main purposes of the U.S. Department of the Interior was to study the batholith, explore the entire area, and decide where to begin the tunneling operation. This is what the miner’s cart is celebrating. See also The Seal of the Department of Interior on the № 27. Foreknowledge of the Coming Axial Tilt page.

Stapleton International Airport
Denver Municipal Airport in 1930. This was the humble beginnings of what would later become the Stapleton International Airport

The Stapleton International Airport was perfectly adequate and did not need replacing

Stapleton began life October 14-20, 1929 as the Denver Municipal Airport (DMA).

To suggest that the Stapleton International Airport did not have problems when it was decommissioned and replaced by the Denver International Airport is irresponsible and just plain lazy from a research perspective. In fact, it was arguably obsolete.

Here I quote three different sources:

Decommissioning (1985-1995)

By the 1980s, plans were under way to replace Stapleton with a new airport. Stapleton was plagued with a number of problems, including:

Wikipedia, Stapleton International Airport

In 1983, when Peña became mayor, Stapleton had major issues, including noise-violation lawsuits and frequent flight delays that affected the entire country.

“It was seen really as the Achilles’ heel of aviation,” said Denver Mayor Michael Hancock. “The old saying is that ‘If Stapleton coughed, the rest of the nation got a cold.’”

Stapleton was hindered by space and its proximity to residential areas


Since it first opened in 1929 as Denver Municipal Airport in the northeast corner of the city, Stapleton Airport had steadily grown in both size and capacity. But commercial and residential development around the airport made new construction so cramped that jets were forced to taxi through underpasses built below I-70 to access certain runways. Talk of building a new airport at a different location started as early as the 1960s and continued through the mayoral administration of Bill McNichols, who commissioned a study of new sites. When Federico Peña took over as mayor in 1983, he thought that expanding Stapleton onto the adjacent Rocky Mountain Arsenal might be a better alternative. But the costs of cleaning up the contaminated site and opposition from Adams County sunk that idea. Meanwhile, Park Hill residents were growing increasingly angry over airport noise and pollution and even filed a lawsuit in hopes of prompting a relocation.

The “Great Hall”

You may think the name of the main terminal is insignificant, but you would be wrong. The progeny of Jove care about things like names and numbers. They have for thousands of years. Both the dedication block and name of the main terminal are a salute to the Freemasons whose primary job it was to found the United States of America and the state of Colorado in particular. Colorado is and always has been the progeny of Jove’s state because that is where the Pikes Peak batholith is located. After accomplishing this work, the Illuminati used the Civil War to take control of everything. Eventually, in 1947 when the CIA was created the Freemasons became a “headless corpse” no longer possessing specific knowledge of the end times. All of this history of the progeny of Jove can be read on the Progeny of Jove and History of the Illuminati pages of this website.

The swastika airport design is deliberate but does not commemorate NAZI Germany

The greatest danger when discussing the appearance of the airport runways as seen from high above is that the subject is not approached with the appropriate respect it deserves. From time to time while working on this website, I am inclined to remind the reader that this is not an intellectual exercise. This is life and death. This is the end of the Fifth World. And if you think the progeny of Jove did not give as much thought to the appearance of the runways from high above as would a garment designer, graphic artist, or sculptor, you do not yet grasp the full dimensions of what is happening. 

There is a measure of mysticism involved here. These are some of the richest and most powerful people in the world looking out their airplane window as they approach DIA and the start of a new life in which their status significantly changes to being among peers. Very few people have studied the Denver International Airport as intensely as I have over what is now the better part of a decade. I am utterly convinced the progeny of Jove gave a great deal of thought to the design of their reception center and the state of mind of the arriving passengers. From the swastica runway design to the underground rail system, everything is thoughtfully designed to be suggestive of an adventure, a new beginning, something cheerful, not to be dreaded. This is critical to maintaining control and the utmost cooperation of people who might otherwise feel anxious. Efficiency of movement requires calm, and this physiological aspect of the operation has not been overlooked

Their movements through the airport will be precisely timed, choreographed with the same care as a ballet. 

In a March 4, 2015 update to a “The airport that launched a thousand conspiracy theories” article in The Telegraph written by Oliver Smith, a spokeswoman for the DIA said, “DIA’s six runways do not cross and can be used simultaneously in any weather condition,” and “All of DIA’s runways support the largest jets currently flying. We think the shape looks like a pinwheel.”

DEN airport diagram

You might be inclined to think this six-runway design is somehow unavoidable if the design objective is to provide multiple runways for landing under every conceivable weather condition, including potentially dangerous crosswinds. But other airport designers found different solutions.

The runways at JFK and LAS do cross

JFK airport diagram

LAS airport diagram

I’ve been to Denver International Airport. I’ve interacted with these guys. They’re real, and so is the swastika as seen from the air. What, did you expect it to be? “In your face”? It’s there. And it’s deliberate.

Why it’s there is the real story, though. As discussed in 54 Square Miles below, in the last days before the tunnels are sealed people are going to be flying in from all over the globe. Most flights will be one-way.

The swastika airport design is a nod to the Fatherland, but more importantly it facilitates airplane abandonment in the open fields surrounding DIA. It was imperative that the runways not cross to minimize the possibility of collision given the frantic pace at which aircraft of all types and sizes will be landing.

The planes will be taxied out into the middle of a field and abandoned. Only there is going to be hundreds and possibly thousands of such flights. The taxiing operations will be comparatively slow. The swastika design maximizes separation of those operations.

Broken airplane windshields on February 16 (216)

I’m not sure what this has to do with the end times, but it is often mentioned in the context of “conspiracy theories” at DIA. And truth be told, this story is a little weird. What makes this weird for me is the date. It was a Friday, February 16, 2007. That’s 216. If you want to know why I think this is mysterious, read my page on Sacred Number 216. A total of 21 windshields were broken in one day, one in flight at 19,000 feet above the airport and some during takeoff and landing, but others while taxiing or just sitting at a gate.

The official explanation of the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) was “foreign object debris”, but the investigators could not determine the “precise nature” of the debris.

What follows is a collection of quotes from articles on the Denver 7, ABC website.

Airline spokesman Joe Hodas: “It’s not exactly unusual weather for Denver. We don’t know what it is… It’s kind of a mystery at this point.”

Spokesman Steve Snyder: “Everybody is fairly baffled by it.”

NTSB’s Kaiser confirmed that there were no reports of impact from flying debris.

DIA spokesman Chuck Cannon said airport operations and maintenance employees could offer no explanation for the windshield problems. “It’s baffling,” he said.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Allen Kenitzer, whose agency is among those investigating the incident, said “We believe it is very remarkable to have this number of events in the same area at the same time.”


Were it not for the progeny of Jove having discovered the Pike’s Peak batholith thousands of years ago, Denver, Colorado would be a podunk, landlocked little town in the middle of nowhere, like any other little town in this part the country. Instead, it is the center of the known universe in terms of the end times.

It is the monumental size of everything at the Denver International Airport that is the conspiracy, not the “conspiracy theory” trinkets they offer for our consideration.

The Denver International Airport is the second largest in the world (the largest being in the middle of a desert) and more than twice as large as the next largest airport in the United States of America. It has the highest capacity fuel system of any airport in the entire world. It owns oil and gas wells and generates its own solar power.

54 square miles

The 1988 annexation of 54 square miles of Colorado prairie, making the Denver International Airport the second largest airport by landmass (or surface area) in the entire world, is something the progeny of Jove could no more resist than a heroin addict could a loaded needle. Normally, what I characterize as “numeric signatures” on this website—which always involve the use of sacred numbers such as 54—are more involved than a single number. But given the boldness of annexing 54 square miles of land for an airport, this use of 54 for me not only constitutes a numeric signature but a truly memorable one. It is directly comparable to the 13 square blocks of Radio Row used for the World Trade Center. Only New York City acquired the land through eminent domain instead of annexation. 

And it was in fact 54 square miles. Anytime someone is factually wrong about how much land was annexed for the Denver International Airport, I know immediately not to trust them as a source of information because if you understand the nature of the progeny of Jove then you would expect nothing less of them. 54 is one of the nine sacred numbers discussed on page № 67. Sacred numbers and refereeing between the gods. For the progeny of Jove to annex 53 square miles for one of the two most important end-time infrastructure projects (the other being the Cheesman dam) is too preposterous to even consider.

Adams County will honor and, as necessary, enforce its voter-approved agreement allowing annexation of 54 square miles for the development of DIA by Denver…

Adams County commissioners quoted in The Denver Post, Adams County demands Denver return land annexed in 1988 for DIA by Jeremy P. Meyer, June 7, 2013 (accessed January 2, 2021) [emphasis added]

The Adams County commisioners should know. It was their land. The importance of this 54 acres is often overlooked because very few people in reality fully appreciate the significance of sacred numbers for the progeny of Jove. It is how they communicate to one another over vast periods of time. It is in fact how they “sign” their work. Sacred numbers are their religion, their God. To say so is no exxageration, and—coming from me at least,—it is also not meant derogatorily. If anything, the progeny of Jove have taught me to regard the sacred numbers as a diferent way of thinking about God.

It is often noted that DIA is over twice the size of the next largest airport in the United States and over twice the size of Manhatten. The cities of Boston or San Francisco could fit on 54 square miles. Here are the three largest airports in the world by surface area

  1. King Fahd International Airport – Dammam, Saudi Arabia (77,600 hectares of desert)
  2. Denver International Airport – Denver, USA (13,571 hectares)
  3. Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport – Dallas, USA (6,963 hectares)

You may sometime hear that DIA is the third largest in the world by surface area. That was true before the decline of Montréal–Mirabel International Airport (Mirabel) in Canada. The last use of Mirabel for commercial passenger flights was on October 31, 2004. In 1989, 32,780 hectares of Mirabel was deeded back to the original land owners. It is primarily used for cargo flights now and is smaller than Dallas/Fort Worth.

Why? Why is always the question?

Why is DIA so big?

The answer is simple. In the last days before the massive steel doors to the granite tunnel system are closed, people are going to be flying into Denver, Colorado from all over the world. Most flights will be one-way. That means someplace is needed to park all of those planes. Now look at the distribution of the highly symbolic 47% of DIA land designated as “non-aviation” in use.

Adams County understandably wants this land returned so that it can be economically developed, but that will never happen. This land is for parking the hundreds if not thousands of planes that will be landing at the Denver International Airport in the closing days of the Fifth World. 

An existing airplane graveyard in the Mojave desert

In other words, those unused acres on the periphery of DIA are destined to become the biggest plane graveyard in the history of mankind, only all of the planes will be state-of-the-art private and commercial jets of all sizes and in perfect condition.

The planes will be taxied out into the middle of a field and abandoned. Only there is going to be hundreds and possibly thousands of such flights. The pilots will be kept for their knowledge of how to fly the planes, in the event that any of them survive the Earth crustal displacement.

Under pressure from local politicians, plans have been made to develop the non-aviation land.

The Strategic Development Plan transforms DEN’s non-aviation land into a series of concentrated, vibrant development districts designed to serve a spectrum of national and global businesses. Focused initially on approximately 1,000 acres along the airport’s main access road, Peña Boulevard…

But of course, that is all for show. They are “initially” developing only the access road.

DIA underground (and the automated baggage system)

I want to begin this section with a clip from Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura. Season 1, Episode 7. Why? Because it is complete and utter nonsense. Not only that, it’s stupid. I know that is a harsh word, but these guys are grossly misleading the public and they should be made to answer for such stupidity.

Forty miles away from Denver International Airport is one of the most unusual granite batholiths in the world. As I explain at great length on page № 58. Virgil’s “Vault Profound” in the Front Range, it is perhaps the single best place on the entire planet to survive a planetary catastrophe on the scale of an Earth crustal displacement. There really is nothing else like it in the world. Yet these two clowns want you to believe that there are bunkers underneath DIA. That’s just stupid. DIA is a reception center. Nothing else. It is connected underground to the Pikes Peak batholith by the same rail system that services the airport.

RUNTIME: 15:54
TITLE: Clips from Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura. Season 1, Episode 7

How big is the DIA underground? This is an important question because if it connects to the 1.08 billion year old Pikes Peak granite batholith in the Front Range, a labyrinth of tunnels would be required to prevent someone from accidentally discovering this fact. Does such a labyrinth exist? You decide. The following video excerpt is from Under Colorado: The secret tunnels of Denver International Airport. produced by 9News.com (KUSA) a local television station in Denver, Colorado.

Denver Airport Saw the Future. It Didn’t Work. by Kirk Johnson, August 27, 2005

Officials said the problem was caused by power surges that tripped breakers on some of the baggage system’s 10,000 motors.

“This is why we do test runs,” said Gene DiFonso, president of BAE Automated Systems Inc., the designer and builder of the $186 million baggage system.

New York Times, Errant Luggage Delays Opening of Denver Airport by Dirk Johnson, March 2, 1994


Perhaps the airport’s most infamous feature, its $218 million automated baggage system, is still not working as designed.

New York Times, Now Denver’s Airport Is Toasted, Not Roasted by James Brooke, March 8, 1997 (accessed January 2, 2021)

Why would someone invite the press to witness the inauguration of an automated baggage system that simply does not work? Why was the point in doing this? To admit defeat? To demonstrate there was an earnest effort to make it work? The press conference made no sense.

Let’s demystify this subject. The following video is the best one that exists. It is a KWGN Denver broadcast from November 22, 2010.

(DIA underground)

I am on a mission to find some video of a veteran DIA employee explaining how easy it is to get lost in the DIA underground even for experienced employees.

Everything about the airport is designed for the last days when untold thousands of people will arrive in a flurry of landings that will last for days or perhaps weeks before everything goes silent and the outer doors of the tunnel system are closed. Approved individuals and their luggage will be ferried

“Denver Airport Saw the Future. It Didn’t Work.”

Westword article “real troubles with the $700 million (and eventually abandoned) automated baggage system”

Cost $100,000

stopped working in 2005???? see vedio below

What’s not functional, and was part of the delay in the original opening of the airport, is an automated baggage system. It failed from the first try and was never fixed, leaving empty tunnels under the airport that leave people wondering where they might lead.

I do not mean to suggest the individuals quoted here are lying. As far as they know, the DIA underground was built solely to house the automated baggage system. Evidently, that is what they were told. What I do most certainly mean to do is to cast some serious doubt on the validity of that claim.

“…the underground facilities are just baggage tunnels” —Steve Snyder, Public Affairs Office in an email to Greg Ericson dated October 16, 2003 and posted on the ConCen.org website

“It’s really just a baggage system”

On Tuesday, May 14, Denver’s NBC affiliate, 9News, aired a story during which anchor Kyle Clark toured the DIA underground facilities with DIA Communications Director Stacey Stegman. The 9News website returns a 404 error when attempting to link to the What’s really under Denver International Airport? video. Here is the transcript as preserved on the The DIA Conspiracy Files website:

DENVER – Chances are you’ve heard it before. You’ve probably been asked about it by one of your friends or relatives: is there a city under Denver International Airport?

Conspiracy theories surrounding DIA have gone worldwide.

If you type in “DIA Conspiracy” into YouTube, more than 80,000 videos pop up, each with tens of thousands of views.

So 9NEWS wanted to find out what’s really under DIA.

“There are so many conspiracy theories that exist about DIA,” DIA Communications Director Stacey Stegman said. “Some people say that there is an underground secret government unit that is housed [under DIA]; that there are alien structures that are hidden; a number of different psychological warfare testing. People question the murals. People question the art. I’ve never seen a facility that has so many questions about it.”

Ever seen the Close Encounters of the Third Kind?

“One of the good theories is that if you plug in the coordinates, the alien race gave to the humans in the Close Encounters of the Third Kind, that somehow that’s exactly where DIA is,” Stegman said. “The coordinates actually land about 51 miles northwest of the Airport. Close Encounters of the Third Kind came out in 1977, 16 years before the airport was built. There’s no link between and this great Hollywood film unfortunately.”

Now to the old baggage rooms. The baggage system is still in place, though no longer used. But of course, there are rumors about that too.

“Some have suggested that the old baggage bins were made just the right size so we could carry bodies in them,” Stegman said.

That’s also not true. They were used only to transport bags years ago.

People also have theories about the tunnels, specifically the height of the tunnels.

“The tunnels are so high because they were built to house the baggage system,” Stegman said.

And of course, one of the most well known theories is that a city exists under the airport.

If you call the thousands of airport workers under DIA a city, then perhaps that theory has some truth to it.

“I think people would be very disappointed if they were to actually spend some time under DIA,” Stegman said.”We are under the foot print of 53 million people. It would be pretty difficult to hide any covert activity with the thousands of workers that are down here every day.”

Aside from the random handprints on the walls, the alien an airport worker drew on a wall and the old baggage system, all that’s under DIA are everyday airport operations.

The DIA Conspiracy Files, Video: 9news “What’s really under Denver International Airport?”, May 15, 2013 [bold-red emphasis added]

When the underground rail system branches off to one side and then curves back down to what appears to be a much lower level, all I could think was, Who builds maintenance platforms on lower levels? What could possibly justify such an expense? 54 square miles and they must dig deeper for the maintenance plaform? It makes no sense. You can honestly sense they are leading somewhere else entirely. I have rarely been so intrigued my entire life. To see one of these braches is reason enough to fly to Denver and visit the airport.

DIA is the Reception Center for the underground city (Virgil’s “vault profound”) or extensive tunnel system carved into the 1.08 billion-year-old “Pikes Peak granite” batholith of the Front Range

It is these disappearing branches that curve off to one side and then head further down into the ground that doubtless connect the Denver International Airport to the underground city or extensive tunnel system carved into the 1.08 billion-year-old “Pikes Peak granite” batholith of the Front Range, what Virgil called the “vault profound”

3. DIA conspiracy theories versus actual conspiracies

PAGE STATUS: These are murals. When you come across a mural in the wild so-to-speak, somewhere in the inner city, what you remember is the mural, not the building it was painted on. These indoor murals are almost by definition a distraction. Our focus should be on the enormous size, advanced technologies, and unprecedented cost of infrastructure in and around Denver, Colorado. Not just the Denver International Airport (officially, DEN). I would draw your attention to the Cheesman Dam. I am in awe of it. It was on the same scale as DEN but is largely forgotten today. But do not let these murals succeed in their purpose. Do not let them distract you. My analysis of the “In Peace and Harmony with Nature” mural is still a mess.

They point to the high cost of the airport – $4.8 billion . That’s nearly $2bn over budget. Never mind that Hong Kong International Airport, completed just three years later, cost $20bn. Or that Dubai International Airport earmarked $82bn for expansion back in 2007.


rumored to be 15 billion over budget

OPENED FEBRUARY 1995 after a 16 month delay. See “new world order commission ” for planned opening. This is not so out of line for a project of this size.

From DIA Conspiracies Take Off on the Westword (a neighborhood in Denver, Colorado) website:

By the time DIA finally opened in February 1995, the original $1.5 billion cost had grown to $5.2 billion. Three months after that opening, the Congressional Subcommittee on Aviation held a special hearing on DIA in which one member said the Denver airport represented the “worst in government inefficiency, political behind-the-scenes deal-making, and financial mismanagement.”

Westword.com, DIA Conspiracies Take Off by Jared Jacang Maher, August 30, 2007

“The project cost $5.2 billion, which was $2 billion over budget and opened a year and a half behind schedule. Construction of this huge facility with 138 gates and a 327 foot tall control tower required 11,000 workers at its height.”

$2 billion dollars over budget and opened a year and a half behind schedule

I am pretty sure the airport was originally expected to cost $1.7 billion with $500,000 coming from the federal government. Final costs are reported to be between $4.8 billion and

UPI opening ceremonies article

DENVER — Formal groundbreaking ceremonies were held Wednesday on the windswept plains northeast of Denver for the city’s new international airport, a $2.3 billion facility that will become the nation’s first major new airport in 19 years when it opens in 1993.”

Size of the construction job

From the Denver Post

div class=”quote”>

Most of the airport’s initial construction, which employed more than 11,000 construction workers, took place after Wellington Webb became mayor in 1991.

Denver Post, Denver International Airport celebrates 20 years by Laura Keenly, February 28, 2015

Rumors attributed to construction workers and contractors

constant construction company changes, and mass firings of teams once they had built a section of their work was reported so that no “one” group had any idea what the blueprint of the airport was

“In a Youtube video Jesse Ventura , former Governor of Minnesota, interviews construction contractors who claim that the Denver airport may have a huge underground bunker, possibly with up to 300,000 ft.² of space or more, to house government and military personnel. The contractors claim the US has been building bunkers all over the US over the past two decades and that huge public works projects are a perfect cover for covert government activity.”

Jared Jacang Maher from DIA Conspiracies Take Off

Susan from Denver finds it strange that so many contractors were dismissed during the airport’s construction, and speculates that this was a tactic to prevent workers from understanding the true scope of the project, allowing planners to build a facility six stories underground “without anyone questioning it.”

The rumors are rampant in the Denver area concerning the base underneath the Denver Airport. Painters and dry wall installers talk of elevators that go down 30 to 40 stories and ex-intelligence spooks talk of underground trains into bowels of the Rockies.

Jay Weidner, The Culling

DIA is part of COG, Continuity of Government

see also President Obama stuff

Other stories were getting around, some concerned with a secret government plan to avert total destruction in the advent of a disaster, either man made or natural. This plan was called COG for Continuity of Government.

COG is a plan that we know exists because Dick Cheney reported to the press that many of his odd actions during the September 11th tragedy were because he was following the rules of COG or continuity of government. So Bush flying to Offutt Air Base in Omaha on that day may have been part of the COG plan. See: http://www.opednews.com/maxwrite/diarypage.php?did=7007

COG was a government plan to save itself by always keeping the option open for the sudden need for the leaders and elites to be able to disappear into an underground bunker.

Was it possible that the rumored underground base built under the Denver Airport was part of COG? Denver with its high altitude and being close to the center of the country could serve as a last-ditch escape hatch for the elites of our country. Since it would take just about the same time to get to Denver from the farthest reaches of the 48 contiguous states and because there were already underground bunkers under Pikes Peak at NORAD the choice of Denver and the nearby Rockies would be obvious.

Perhaps the rumors of underground trains moving from under the airport into the bowels of the Rocky Mountains is not so far fetched either.

Buried runways

An entire runway constructed, then buried under a layer of dirt and “forgotten”.

Movement of vast amounts of dirt

According to nearby neighbors, thousands of truckloads of dirt was removed from the area over the years.

“Over 110 million cubic yards of earth were removed from the ground (enough to cover 32 city blocks to a depth of one-quarter mile if dumped into a single pile) in order to build out the tunnels for that for the baggage system and the concourses, or if you’re awake, for the New World bunker. According to truthers, that amount of earth exceeds the size of the airport, regardless of the baggage claim system and the various concourses—”

“One hundred and ten million cubic yards ( yd.³) of earth were moved during the building of the project; this is equivalent to one third the amount of earth moved in building the Panama Canal.”

Even though the area is basically flat (with a stunning view of mountains all around, since it’s in a valley), the expense and time was taken to extensively lower some areas and raise others. They moved 110 million cubic yards of earth around. This is about 1/3rd of the amount of earth they moved when they dug out the Panama Canal.

Barbed wire on fences is facing inwards

This is a fact. And it is highly unusual. A quick Google search for “airport security fence” will show that the barbed wire is always facing outward.

The man in this picture is named Khalil Amani. He used to have extensive videos about the fencing at DIA, but they are no longer on YouTube.

Fiber-optic cables

In his Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura show about the Denver International Airport, the former Governor of Minnesota says, “They’ve got enough fiber-optic cables to cover a city.”

The airport has a fiber optic communications core made of 5,300 miles of cable. That’s longer than the Nile River. That’s from New York City to Buenos Aires, Argentina. The airport also has 11,365 miles of copper cable communications network.

But this last paragraph that should get your attention.

Granite imported from all over the world

This is another detail that may seem unimportant, but you would be very wrong to think so.

  1. The floors were constructed with granite imported from North & South America, Asia, Africa and Europe.

Granite was imported from all over the world – Asia, Africa, Europe, North and South America – and used in making the main terminal floor. This is a ridiculous expense, especially when you’re already over budget. They say, “The floor pattern echoes the roof design and subtly reinforces passenger flows”. Ah…subliminal messages to move your ass. It might look pretty but would any of us know Chilean granite from Chinese granite? Or care? You can dye rock if it’s colors you’re after. Cheaper rocks. (I wonder what the “stones have power” people say about this…)

The iconic roof structure

The roof is never discussed in this “conspiracy” context. It should be. The Teflon-coated, woven fiberglass material used is widely reported to be “as thin as a credit card.” This description is said to have been from the DIA’s own website, though I cannot find the original source.


The entire roof of DIA is made of 15 acres of Teflon-coated, woven fiber glass. The same material is on the inside as a layer, also. The place looks like a bizarre (but kind of cool) scene out of “Dune”, comprised of huge, spiked tent-like structures. The material reflects 90% of the sunlight and doesn’t conduct heat. So you can’t see into the place with radar or see heat signatures. I added helpfully.

The airport is known for its unusual look having its signature 15 acres of Teflon-coded woven fiberglass which is a combination of materials that make it impossible to see inside with radar.

“The airport is known for its unusual look having its signature 15 acres of Teflon-coded woven fiberglass which is a combination of materials that make it impossible to see inside with radar.”

The fueling system

In his Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura show about the Denver International Airport, the former Governor of Minnesota says “They’ve got …. a fueling system that’s bigger than any airport would ever need.”

“In addition to that damn devil caballo, several white fuel tanks surround the airport. These are used to power the airport. However! Conspiracy theorists point out that the tanks have 40% more fuel than any other airport in the world—including the world’s largest, which is located in Saudi Arabia. How come? Because once the world has ended and Blue Ivy is nestled safely beneath Colorado’s terra firma, these fuel tanks will power the underground city. They are the power generators for the next world. From the airport’s website: “The fueling system at DIA is capable of pumping 1,000 gallons of jet fuel per minute through a 28-mile network of pipes. Each of the six fuel farm tanks holds 65,000 barrels (2.73 million gallons) of jet fuel,” which conspiracy theorists say is “absurd” for a commercial airport.”

“Since the facility opened in 1994, ASIG has managed the DEN Fuel System on behalf of the airport’s airline consortium, which today consists of 20 member airlines. The facility has the world’s largest airport fuel hydrant system with 27 miles of underground pipeline that delivers jet fuel from the airport’s six storage tanks to the various concourses. The system handles over a million gallons of jet fuel daily. When the airport completes its solar project in December, the facility will be the first fuel system in the world to be powered by solar energy.” [bold-red emphasis added]

million gallons versus what hold capacity?

“The airport also has the largest jet fuel distribution network in the world”

Google Seach


The fueling system can pump 1,000 gallons of jet fuel per minute through a 28-mile network of pipes. There are six fuel hold tanks that each hold 2.73 million gallons of jet fuel. This is somewhere in the “no one will ever ever need this much” range.

anomalies-unlimited.com from Denver Airport

[widely quoted]
The fueling system can pump 1,000 gallons of jet fuel per minute from 6 jet fuel storage tanks that hold 2.73 million gallons each.

According to the Denver International Airport website, the fueling system at DIA ”is capable of pumping 1,000 gallons of jet fuel per minute through a 28-mile network of pipes. Each of the six fuel farm tanks holds 65,000 barrels (2.73 million gallons) of jet fuel.” This is a lot of fuel for a commercial airport—and 40 percent more than the larger King Fahd International Airport—causing some people to wonder what that extra fuel might be for.

Appointed Federico Pena to control of the U.S. Department of Transportation, despite Pena’s involvement in the corruption involving the acquisition of the Denver International Airport. The corruption involved HUD, the savings and loans, and CIA assets.

Is DIA Sanctioned Business Class Travel A ‘Perk’ Or Everyday City Of Denver Business?

In October 2016, a delegation from Denver took off for Dubai to pursue “important business and tourism connections.”

Mayor Michael Hancock, a top deputy, and two city council members flew business class on Emirates Airline. They stayed at The Palace Downtown hotel for a week. Total cost of the trip, including incidentals, paid for by Denver International Airport: $16,502 a person.

Top city officials argued to the Denver Board of Ethics in late 2017 that they shouldn’t have to report this kind of travel — hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth, especially when business class upgrades are involved — because the city is the city, and the city can’t donate to, or influence itself.

The Board of Ethics wasn’t buying it, and appears to have put serious handcuffs on this kind of travel. The spat highlights the existence of an interesting practice. There are two sets of rules for city travel; rules that are determined by the source of funds that pay for the travel.

City rules call for flying coach, but in certain cases Mayor Michael Hancock, his staff and the city council flew business class on trips organized by the airport.

CPR News requested travel receipts through the state’s open records law to get a sense of the scope of travel. From 2013 to 2017, the airport has provided $426,436 in travel to the mayor’s office and city council, mostly business class overseas flights.


Officials at Denver International Airport contend long overseas work trips can be challenging. That’s why the airport has its own set of rules allowing employees to upgrade to business class. Stacey Stegman, an airport spokesperson, said that applies to Denver elected officials too.

“When they travel with us, they’re traveling for airport business,” Stegman said. “And we want them to be fresh and be in the same place as us.”

Having elected officials along for the ride is important, Stegman said. The airport is the state’s largest economic driver, and promoting it in far off destinations like Dubai, Panama City, and Tokyo is critical.

She also noted that the airport is not a typical city agency, it’s an enterprise, existing in an accounting sense outside of the city budget. It’s not funded by taxpayer dollars, so Stegman contended the airport can write more generous travel rules than what would be allowed for other city agencies or city employees.

Rodney Stich
A CIA agent bribed the Mayor of Denver $1.5 Million

It is often reported that “the author of Defrauding of America, Rodney Stitch, claims to have a copy of a tape of a CIA agent paying off ($1.5 million) the mayor of Denver to get the airport built.” Until I read this book, the only source I have for this quote is from this exchange in the above KSEO interview with Alex Christopher

C: It is interesting that high officials in the Clinton administration, like Cisneros, were deeply involved with the construction of this airport. Also, Pat Shroeder. All of a sudden, she’s leaving office. It’s like a lot of people who have been involved with this airport are leaving town. Also, there is a fellow by the name of Rodney Stitch, who writes about the total corruption in the Denver area. Does this tie in with what you were talking about?

AC: Well, he is the one that wrote the book Defrauding America. He said that they had a tape of a CIA agent paying off the mayor of Denver to get the airport built. There is just so much corruption. They are selling the good American people out. We have some of our own people selling the rest of population out for a few pieces of gold.

Dave Alan interview of Alex Christopher on KSCO radio, transcript on Leading Edge International Research Group at www.trufax.org/reports/denver.html, May 1, 1996

Rodney Stitch is the author of the “Defrauding America” (amazon.com) series of books. He has published so many books, I will probably never try to find this quote.

There is a most-likely self-written bio entitled Captain Rodney Stich— Eight-Decade Action-Packed Odyssey on the on the rodneystich.com website, which appears to be part of the larger www.defraudingamerica.com website. That website includes a Background of Captain Rodney Stich— page. He seems credible, but I would prefer to find an account of this story in his own words, not secondhand.

Leo Tanguma, the artist

The artist has a short autobiographical About the Artist webpage entitled simply “Leo Tanguma” with pictures of himself on his website Leo Tanguma Chicano Muralist. He concludes this page by saying, “The key element found in all of Leo’s work is the struggle for dignity, justice, self-determination, and human rights. Tanguma views his murals as dialogue with the oppressed. He states, ‘The values and subject matter for my murals have come directly from the people, and it is for the community that I paint.’”

From DIA Conspiracies Take Off on the Westword (a neighborhood in Denver, Colorado) website:

Tanguma grew up in a small town in Texas, where Latinos were in the minority. He created his first mural when he was in the fifth grade and the local sheriff shot and killed three of his cousins in a questionable incident. He got up and went to the blackboard to draw what he liked to draw: horses, lions and tigers. “But this kid, somebody, said, ‘Draw me killing the sheriff.’ We were totally helpless in those days.” So he drew the kid stabbing the sheriff. And then the teacher walked in. He got a few licks for his depiction.

“But somebody asked me to do that art,” he remembers. “And in my life, I always felt that the community needed somebody to express its feelings.”

He only finished school through the sixth grade. Later, he joined the military. While overseas, he got his GED and took a cartooning correspondence course. Once out of the service, Tanguma went to Texas Southern University in 1972, where he’d paint community-center walls or street murals for small commissions. His murals can now be found on the walls of elementary schools, college campuses, housing projects, churches and art museums across the western U.S.

Tanguma moved to Colorado in 1983 because he thought there would be more opportunity here. The first piece he did in town was a mural in response to gang violence, paid for with small donations from churches and neighbors.

In 1993, Tanguma got a $100,000 commission for DIA. Initially, it was for one mural — but as he started painting, he decided to do more. “I wanted it to live up to how I felt about Denver, for the opportunity,” he says. He insists that he was given no guidelines for what to paint, and it took him three years to finish the work. “I tried to paint according to my conscience. Because I told the committee I tried not to paint just for decoration. It has to have a meaning.”

Was Leo Tanguma told what to paint?

This question should not be confused as interpreting the meaning of the murals. Arguably, the murals speak for themselves at this point. As with any work of art, the artist’s original intent is only part of the equation once his art is publically displayed. The question is was Leo Tanguma told what to paint.

Given my characterization of the Denver International Airport as a reception center for a multi-trillion dollar granite tunnel system drilled into the Pikes Peak batholith forty miles away in the Front Range, who dictated the subject matter of the artwork displayed in that reception center becomes a profoundly interesting question. And it goes beyond Leo Tanguma. More than one artist has highly unusual work on display at the Denver International Airport. They were all well paid, a fact methinks is relevant to this discussion.

In answer to this question about Leo Tanguma’s murals, the information available publically is self-contradictory. I have added bold-red italics emphasis to all of the following quotes about this subject.

When I first tried to contact the artist and talk to him about these murals, he told me that he was given guidelines on what to paint and put in the murals. When I showed up in his studio, I asked to see the guidelines for the last two murals he was working on, he suddenly went ‘brain dead’ and said ‘of course, there are no guidelines.’

From The Dave Alan interview of Alex Christopher

He insists that he was given no guidelines for what to paint.

Jared Jacang Maher in his DIA Conspiracies Take Off article, August 30, 2007

Tanguma reportedly confirmed that he was given guidelines for the paintings and was paid 100 000$ [sic] for the first ones. He later denied he was given instructions and refuted any questions regarding hidden meanings in his paintings. Previous Leo Tanguma murals were typical Chicano art, politically charged and community oriented. However, his work at the DIA sends a totally different “vibe”, giving me the gut feeling that he simply drew someone else’s vision.

VigilantCitizen.com, The Denver International Airport, November 27, 2008

The artist Leo Tanguma has changed his story. His first story, in 1995, was that he was commissioned and told exactly what to paint, now, according to Westword in 2007, he says that he was the one who decided what to paint. Does it sound like normal operating procedure to just pay an artist to paint whatever he likes in a public airport, an airport that has a Masonic influence? Not likely. More likely is that they told him exactly what to paint.

JayWeidner.com, The Culling, which begins, “Author’s note: This is an updated essay that first appeared in the book Secrets and Suppressed II from Feral House Publishing. Copyright 2008”

One of the women asked Tanguma if the airport had told him what to paint. He remembers that, because he remembers how she said it. He told her no, that he was given no instructions on content.

“I know he was commissioned to do the murals, and I know he was told pretty much what to paint.” —Jay Weidner

Westword.com, DIA Conspiracies Take Off by Jared Jacang Maher, August 30, 2007

When I ask [Lydia] Peña if the commission dictated what the artist’s produced she denies it, saying, “Artists need to be free to create not to be told exactly what to do.” [media-relations chief Heath] Montgomery concurs, “The city doesn’t dictate what a final piece looks like. They dictate what the type of the concept is. So, we selected a muralist and this is what he came up with.”

Thrillist.com, How the Denver Airport Became an Icon of the Illuminati by Colin St. John, October 31, 2017

Lastly, I quote from a fictional work that suggests “the Masons did it”:

“How on earth did the city of Denver approve of such horrific murals in their airport?” Aaron asked.

“They really didn’t have anything to say about it. Freedom of speech; freedom of expression in art; all the freedom arguments allowed the Masons to influence all the murals you see. Here is another one.” They moved on to the next one.

“Oh, Gordon. How horrible. I can’t believe my eyes; a dark green giant monster wearing what looks like a gas mask, destroying a city. And what are these? It looks like women carrying dead babies. What sick person drew all these?”

“It doesn’t matter who drew them, Aaron. This is the future.”

Forever Conceal, Never Reveal, Dawn Meiera, 2009

My answer is, Yes, I think the artists at DIA were told to include certain elements in the works of art they produced. To understand why I feel this way, read about the NIINENII NIICIE floor tile artwork discussed in the Cheesman Dam section of page № 56. Denver International Airport (DIA). As discussed in that section, I don’t think the DIA artists knew what they were doing in the sense that Stanley Kubrick did. He knew everything. The evidence suggests that the DIA artist were kept in the blind and told only to include certain elements in their work beyond which they had total artistic freedom.

So you cannot even begin to compare the life of Stanley Kubric to the artists whose works are on display at the Denver International Airport. If Leo Tanguma admitted he was told what to include in the murals and later retracted that statement, as Alex Christopher suggests, it was not for fear of being killed. It was simply a contractual obligation. This is why I say the fact that they were well paid is germane to the discussion. I suspect that when Leo Tanguma first met Alex he told her the truth, but when she came back to write a book about the DIA, he acted as if he had never said it and for good reason. I am sure his contract included a financial forfeiture clause that extended to his heirs should he reveal the fact that he was told to include certain elements in his artwork.

What Leo Tanguma and Stanley Kubrick have in common is that the DIA murals are speaking over the heads of his financial benefactors, the progeny of Jove, to anyone who can hear what he is saying. In other words, Leo Tanguma was not intimidated into silence. And what he has to say in these murals goes way beyond what he is willing to publically admit.

Original Transcript: INTERVIEW: Leo Tanguma

This is an important interview for getting to know the artist. Hence I have copied the entire transcript to my website for your convenience. 

“In Peace and Harmony with Nature” at DIA, courtesy of Leo Tanguma

Leo Tanguma, the Chicano muralist perhaps best known by Colorado travelers and the subcultural blogosphere of paranoid doomsday theorists for his dramatic murals at Denver International Airport, creates his complicated pieces through an organic, multi-step process that weaves Mexican heritage, world history, spirituality, progressive social ideals, and personal anecdotes. He made his first mural on a chalkboard in fifth grade, depicting children lynching the town’s corrupt sheriff, for which he was severely punished, and this experience stoked a rebellious verve in his artistic practice that would be played out during the coming decades. Much like Los Tres Grandes – Diego Rivera, José Clemente Orozco, and David Alfaro Siqueiros – from whom Tanguma draws his artistic heritage, he has a keen interest in politics and cultural theory, of which his views swing decidedly left. His sprawling, complicated, large-scale public artworks do contain a number of secrets: portraits of real people lost to street violence, unsung heroes from the margins of history books, and the reexamined Chicano myth of a weeping woman, for example. “Children of the World Dream of Peace” and “In Peace and Harmony with Nature,” the murals that Tanguma created for Level 5 of the Jeppesen Terminal at DIA, were almost never to be: Tanguma barely made the proposal submission deadline. As of this year, he has completed dozens of murals at various public venues across six states, painting themes of childhood courage and idealism, environmentalism, multiculturalism, and Tanguma’s uncanny signature of socially-conscientious spirituality. His most recent work in progress is inspired by the Occupy movement, the pencil drafting of which, sits on a modest, clean desk in his home studio.

Interview by Rachel Cole Dalamangas

Can you walk me through some of the imagery of your murals? Who are the people in the background?

Many of them are real people. This is an anonymous community and an anonymous community can be anybody. In this here, there are the symbols of oppression that our [Chicano] community has overcome. Are you familiar with that figure?

points to a stylized figure with three faces on drafting work for his mural, “The Torch of Quetzalcoatl,” commissioned by the Denver Art Museum


Well it means the fusion of the Spanish and the English when the Spanish came and brought women and began to rape and marry the indigenous women and introduced a new breed called, mestizo. And so that’s the essence of our identity.

And this figure, this is La Llorona, the weeping woman who destroyed her own children after having married a Spaniard, a conquistador. The Spaniard at one point decides to go back to Spain and to take the children with him. Well, that drives the woman mad because to them Spain was like Mars to us or someplace really distant and remote. The legend says that she drowned her children so that the husband wouldn’t take them to Spain, away from the New World. In my mural, I make La Llorona find her children because we get these stories from the Spanish historians and they had a very prejudicial view of the native peoples, that they were less than human, and we get a lot of our folklore from the Spanish males. In my mural she is shown reuniting with her children and it is a very happy occasion.

At the Denver Art Museum, a lot of kids come from the schools, the projects, from schools that have a lot of Mexican-American kids. When I tell the kids about her and say, “Do you know what La Llorona means?” they say, “Yes, we even know where she lives, there under the bridge.” She’s a really intense figure in our memory I guess. But then I tell them, “Don’t you see, somebody said that she killed her own children, but I don’t believe she did it.” Maybe she did, maybe she didn’t, but I don’t want to project that story anymore. So I tell the kids, “I have La Llorona find her children and she’ll stop crying and stop searching for them through eternity, which is what God condemned her to do.” Then I tell the kids, “They lived happily ever after.Don’t you want to live happy ever after.” And some of those kids had tears in their eyes.

Do your murals exist as wholes in your mind or do they develop as you start to draft them?

They develop. I search for ideas. I think it starts with something in my memory. For example, we were Baptists all my years growing up, even though the Baptists are really really conservative and there were ways that some of us weren’t in agreement with the general things. We’d hear from the pulpit, “Hispanic boys will not be found with those protesting,” you know, with those in the youth protest movements, and of course, some of us thought, that’s where we should be instead of sitting at the church.

points to pencil drafts for “Children of the World Dream of Peace.”

This is a lesson from the prophet Isaiah and Micah, that some day the nations of the world will stop war and so on and will beat their swords into ploughshares and their spears into pruning forks. That’s taken from how I was brought up. My parents were really religious when I was growing up, but innocent in their beliefs. I was the one who always questioned everything and I got worse as I got older. So you can see this comes from my religious ideas. As you can see, the people of the world are bringing their swords wrapped in their flags to be beaten into ploughshares.

Then here I have children sleeping amid the debris of war and this warmonger is killing the dove of peace, but the kids are dreaming of something better in the future and their little dream goes behind the general and continues behind this group of people, and the kids are dreaming that [peace] will happen someday. See how the little dream becomes something really beautiful, that someday the nations of the world will abandon war and come together.

What happened up on top here, when we were painting the mural at our studio at a shopping mall, some people who had their kids killed by gang violence came and said, “What are you going to paint up there?” I said, “Well, I have to look at the drawings.” They said, “Could you put my boy or my girl up there? She was killed.” And then they told us her name, Jennifer. This girl, Jennifer, was killed by a young man. She went to help her friend who was hiding with her baby from a man in a motel someplace, and they didn’t have anything to eat or diapers. So Jennifer took her some money and the boyfriend followed her. When Jennifer got to the motel room, the man followed her in and shot her right there dead and then dragged her friend and the child out. So her parents wanted her portrait put up there. They must have told other folks, because before I knew it other people came and said, “I know you, you painted [Jennifer] up there. Could you paint my son, Troy.” So now it’s got like ten kids here, all killed by gang violence in Denver. So the mural took on a new meaning that we hadn’t anticipated. Almost all these kids in here are real people. I put in my granddaughters and their little friends from elementary school. Like more than twenty-five kids from around the schools are in that mural.

The conspiracy theorists have interpreted it in the most naive way, I could say, like they think I advocate war and all these horrible stories.

Have the conspiracy theorists ever harassed you?

Just a couple of phone calls. They were not mean though. They’d say, “Are you the one who painted that?” And some came to my studio and wanted an explanation, which I gave it to them.

Even an explanation didn’t placate them?

Well, the airport never posted a complete explanation. They just put the title, the artist, the materials.

So how did you learn so much about history?

I just was interested in reading.

What happened I think was that something happened when I was growing up in Beeville, Texas, a little town fifty miles north of Corpus Christi. Like many little towns in Texas we had very racist sheriffs and police that liked to keep Mexicans in our place. In our town it was a sheriff named, Vail Eniss. One time the sheriff went to see about some minor thing between a Mexican husband and his wife about their children. The young man was not there, but the father was there. The sheriff arrived there with a semi-automatic rifle – now why if you’re only concerned about a minor incident? So he gets into an argument with the father and shoots him and as he shoots him, there’s other people that were in the yard that came around and he shoots them also. He killed three people in a few seconds. The man at the front was my mother’s uncle, Mr. Rodriguez. So in our family that was talked about. And in other families also. For example, my brother-in-law was put in jail and the sheriff personally beat him with a hose. I don’t know for how long, but severely. It was really really bad. He was just drunk, that’s why he was in jail. So we had a kind of a hate for the system because those things kept happening and the sheriff kept being exonerated over and over and over until he retired with honors.

So you see, we already had a disposition, some of us, that there was something wrong here.Why were treated like this.

When I was in the fifth grade, one day our teacher didn’t show up, so a lady from the office came and said we were going to have a substitute and later she would arrive and for us to stay at our seats and behave. And when the lady left everyone began to play and talk and stuff.Some kids went up to the blackboard. I was more reserved than most folks. We were a little odd. Some of us were Baptists in a community that was almost totally Catholic. So we were a little more reserved. I was sitting down for a long time and some kids were drawing already and after a little while I said, “Okay I’ll go draw too.” So I went up to the blackboard. I didn’t know what I was going to draw, but before I could draw, somebody said, “Pollo, draw me killing the sheriff.” Also all the kids began to say, “Draw me too! Draw me too!” So I started to draw the sheriff hanging or being stabbed. Then the substitute walked in. She was outraged at what she saw. Of course, when I saw her, I ran and sat down, but she had seen me already.She looked at the drawings and she said, “You, come here and erase this garbage.” I began to erase it and she got a ruler and began to hit me across the back. She was in a rage. And I began to cry. I guess I couldn’t see too well because I thought I was done erasing so I ran back to my seat and she said, “Come back here, you’re not done yet.” Because I hadn’t finished it completely. So I erased it completely. She hit me a few more times on the back. I don’t remember too much about what happened after that. Whether I went to sit back down or just stood there. For a while I stood there.

Many people have asked me when was your first mural, thinking I’m gonna say something like when I was in the boy scouts or something like that.

That I think started something in me.

Tell me about some of your artistic influences.

I met the professor in the art department, Dr. John Biggers, at the Southern University in Houston, Texas. He was a radical and he admired the Mexican muralists and he taught about them in a class I was in with him. Then I told him about the murals I was painting. And we became friends. So I was so influenced by Dr. Biggers. And he said go see the muralists in Mexico City.

What happened in my case was there were people, Los Mascarones, – masks – and they did a performance and so after the performance a lot of those kids [in Los Mascarones] stayed in my home. I had an enormous living room. After the performance they were at my house and the kids were sleeping already and I was having coffee with the director of the group and I asked the man, “Do you know anybody who could get me introduced to Siqueiros.” I was asking this guy – Mario was his name – and he said, “That’s his grandson sleeping right there.” I wanted to go wake that kid up. In the morning, I said, “Could you introduce me to your grandpa?” And he said, “Sure, just come on over.” So that’s how I met Siqueiros.

It was real funny. Siqueiros talked about some of the other guys, like, “Those guys can’t paint,” talking about Rivera. It was funny because Rivera is a Great. A great, great master. And then Siqueiros said, “Tamayo was okay, but one time we had a fight at the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City.” Siqueiros said that one time he and Tamayo got in a fight at the top of the stairs and rolled down the stairs.

Do you know much about the great muralists from Mexico?

A little bit . . .

Well Siqueiros was the most outspoken of them. Before the revolution began, like 1911, he was a student at the Academy of San Carlos in Mexico City. He and the other guys, he must have been 14, 15, and they were meeting already about political issues that were being discussed in Mexico before the revolution. And Siqueiros talked about this when I interviewed him. It was another awakening for me. Siqueros was so dynamic and a little reckless also. Do you remember Trotsky? Trotsky separated himself from Stalin and the rest, and Trotsky was a little more progressive I think. But Stalinists thought that he was dividing the worldwide communist movement and so they wanted him killed. Siquerios was a Stalinist in those days when he was young. When he was older he didn’t want to talk about it. He’d say, “We were young then.” He tried to assassinate Trotsky himself before Trotsky was finally assassinated.And that’s the way he was, kind of crazy and reckless and so on.

But to meet him when he was, I think, 72, it was quite an experience for a young person like myself. So I came back thinking, “Wow, I met a master, a real master.” Because there were many of us painting murals, but we didn’t know what we were saying or what we believed in or what our purpose was in painting the murals. I came back with a little more beliefs.

How many murals have you painted in Colorado?

I don’t know. But I’ve got some in schools, the high schools.

And some in prisons, too, right?

Did I do one in a prison? Yes, that’s right. In Greeley, there’s a youth facility. We did two murals there. When we were working in the prison the kids there were 10 years to 20 years of age. They didn’t call them inmates, they called them students. They were there for different offenses. 37 kids volunteered to paint murals with [my assistants and I]. We told them the way we were going to do the murals was each of them was going to sit down and draw from their own experience how they got in trouble, how they got their lives messed up at this early stage, and they were going to draw that and then they were going to draw another drawing about how they were going to improve their lives. So many kids didn’t like the idea so they quit coming in. We only had 15 kids. But some of them couldn’t see a way out. This one girl, her name was Alicia, she drew some big bottles like alcohol drinks and there was a little girl at the bottom lost in alcohol. And I said, “Okay, now what’s the other one, how are you going to get yourself out of this?” And she wouldn’t do it.

Everybody painted a portion of the mural, about two and a half feet wide by twenty inches high, and they would paint how they had gotten in trouble, the life they had, and how they were freeing themselves from that. And Alicia left hers just like that. She said, “Once an alcoholic, always an alcoholic.” So I could never make her go beyond that. Another kid named John, he drew himself in a big rat trap, and I said, “Well, what are you going to do when you’re on the other side?” And he said, “Once you get in drugs and messed up, that’s the way you’ll be forever.” And I said, “No.” And we were kind of preachy the three of us, my two assistants and I, we were trying to tell the kids there’s something better out there, like, “Paint yourself some other way.” And John did change his drawing. He’s got the kid trapped and then in the other one there’s a trap with the wire back and the kid’s standing next to it, because he’s gotten himself out of that situation. And that’s how it’s painted on the mural today. It was therapeutic, what I was doing with the kids.

I’ve told my students, “We have to have a higher purpose with our art here, not just to sell it so people can take it and just decorate their homes, but do something more positive.”

Can you expand on that? What is art’s role in cultural and political conversations?

Well, the Mexican muralists after the Mexican revolution proceeded to paint the people because many of them had been with the revolution and had seen the struggle of the people and they saw firsthand how art could return to the people a sense of their own dignity.

Just to give you an example of how the elites in Mexico saw their own people, Mexico celebrated its 100th anniversary in 1910 and to celebrate the 100th year they invited an enormous exhibit of art from Europe, from Spain especially. Now how did those guys see the Mexican people, the Mexican artists especially. Why couldn’t they have an exhibit of Mexican artists celebrating Mexican independence. So that could give you an idea of how the rulers saw their own people.

My activism was in painting murals and working with kids and so on, but in my case, I already had the experience of being back in Beeville with the sheriff, and drawing him on the blackboard. The young people see themselves in the murals.

And in my background I had never gotten away from my beliefs. Because my parents were so beautiful. Memories that you could never forget. Like before going to bed, my little brother and myself and my older sister, and everybody’s going to bed, my mother takes a little time to sit in her rocking chair to sing or just hum hymns, and I grew up seeing that. Or hearing my mother or my father at the dinner table saying, “Remember the poor.” A list of things that they repeated almost in every prayer. So that was the kind of innocent background that I had in my case.

Some other artists did it because the Mexican painters were revolutionary in the Marxist way.Being not very easy with words, I tried to read Marx, but it was just too complex and boring.On the other hand, the Bible was easy for me and to see it in my family and going to visit my brother in prison and seeing all those things, they were impacting me.

So as I began to read history, Mexican history and then the history of us here in the U.S., and I saw how I could contribute.

For example I painted a mural about black and white. It was four or five feet off the ground, 18 feet higher up, and I painted many bodies, brown bodies, because we had been made to feel inferior to the whites. I remember seeing also in the 7th grade for the first time the black kids, the Mexican kids, and the white kids were all together, and I remember the black kids, when they went to speak to the teacher, and the teacher spoke to them, they lowered their heads.We were pretty bad, us, the Mexican kids. But we didn’t do that I don’t believe. We didn’t look the teachers in the eyes very much, but we didn’t lower our heads I don’t think. And I thought that was out of some humiliation and as I studied more about blacks and other oppressed peoples, I could see that what I had was an instrument in my hands that I could use to return to the people a sense of their history and their beauty and their human dignity. And people responded to that. They like those kinds of explanations.

Tell me about what you’re working on now.

I’m thinking about this mural for the Occupy movement. I don’t have funding yet. I think it’s very important and very interesting, what the young people are trying to do with that.

The DIA murals

There are only two Leo Tanguma murals at Denver International Airport. They were painted from 1993 to 1995. He was assisted by his daughter Leticia Tanguma and a friend Cheryl Detweiler. Contrary to what is often said on the Internet, neither mural has ever been painted over. Nor have they ever been removed. Both murals are in the “Great Hall” or main terminal. The names of the murals are “The Children of the World Dream of Peace” and “In Peace and Harmony with Nature.” Each mural consists of two panels (sometimes referred to as a diptych), one small (12′ x 15′) and one large (12′ x 28′). On this page, I discuss only the smaller panel of the “In Peace and Harmony with Nature” mural. The artist knows his murals are shocking. He’s not an idiot. But the name of this particular mural, located in the main Jeppesen Terminal (which is notably on Level 5) is dripping with sarcasm.
found near the baggage claim area

One mural features three women in coffins surrounded by endangered animals, including a Quetzal bird, named after the Mayan god Quetzalcoatl, in a glass cage — an “extinction message,” Weidner says.

Not removed, not painted over

UPDATE: For the first time ever, I believe both of Leo Tanguma’s murals may have been temporarily removed (I am not sure) for the Great Hall renovation project, which is “three and one-half year renovation project.” The Great Hall Project page states that “some of the artwork in the terminal has been temporarily placed in storage until construction is complete. The airport’s unique and conversational art will return upon completion of the project.” At other times the airport has repeatedly affirmed that Leo Tanguma’s murals are part of the airport’s permanent collection.

One thing I have found extremely odd is the number of people on the Internet who claim the murals have either been removed or painted over. This simply is not true.

[Colleen Fanning, DIA art program manager] has gotten calls about Tanguma’s art, including one last year from a person who accused the airport of changing portions of his murals to cover up secret meanings. “They basically scream at me and ask me why we have taken those murals down, but they’ve never been changed or been taken down,” she says. “Those murals will be there for a while. They’re not coming down.”

Westword.com, DIA Conspiracies Take Off by Jared Jacang Maher, August 30, 2007

I was really concerned when I first flew to DIA that the murals would not be there. They were. They’ve always been there. They were never taken down. They have never been altered in any way whatsoever.

“In Peace and Harmony with Nature”

Official DEN Webpage: Art & Culture, Permanent Collection and About DEN Art

For whatever reason, my analysis of Leo Tanguma’s work focuses on this one mural. Honestly, I cannot recall why other than to say the moment I set eyes on it I saw that those were books burning, and by extension Maya codices. Immediately, I saw the artist was speaking above his financial benefactor’s head. I do not think the progeny of Jove would want to celebrate the utter destruction of an entire culture in order to protect the secret of the coming end time. It was not one of their better moments. But I may be wrong because the theme of the entire airport is the native American Indians. Why this is so escapes me to this very day. 

The burning of the Maya codices

I was no little annoyed by Jay Weidner when looking at the “In Peace and Harmony with Nature” mural with Jesse Ventura in Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura. Season 1, Episode 7,which can be seen at the top of the section entitled DIA underground (and the automated baggage system) on page № 56. Denver International Airport (DIA),—he characterizes the burning forest as “the mother of all solar flares” and as an “end of the world motif.” This struck home because I knew the moment I saw this mural exactly what this is. What do you see when you look at this part of the mural?

Books burning

If you doubt my interpretation of the burning forest, look closely at how the artist has for some unknown reason disassembled the plexiglass cage of the Quetzalcoatl bird and used one of the panes to suggest the front cover of a book. There can be no mistaking what you are looking at.
Those are Maya books burning, and this is an obvious reference to what has since been called “The Mayan Apocalypse” when the Catholic Bishop Diego de Landa mindlessly destroyed thousands of manuscripts in front of the church in the town of Maní, on the Yucatan peninsula, on the evening of July 12th, 1562, one of the greatest intellectual loses in the entire history of mankind.

Diego de Landa, Bishop of Yucatán

Wikipedia’s Diego de Landa pages says, “Historians describe him as a cruel and fanatical priest who led a violent campaign against idolatry. In particular, he burned almost all the Mayan manuscripts (codex) that would have been very useful in deciphering Mayan script, knowledge of Maya religion and civilization, and the history of the American continent.” [bold-red emphasis added]. Most importantly, the codices would have divulged the presence of the Pythagoreans in Central America thousands of years before Columbus sailed. This and the fact that they would have allowed us to fully understand the design of the Mesoamerican (misnamed “Mayan”) Long Count calendar is why they had to be destroyed.
Diego wasn’t on a crusade against idolatry. He was under orders to erase any trace of the Pythagoreans in the Americas.
Here is another mural containing the same subject matter. It is from the National Autonomous University of Mexico, a public university in Mexico City, Mexico.

The burning of Maya codex, ordered by Fray Diego de Landa (Mural by Juan O’Gorman, Biblioteca Central de la UNAM -Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México-, Mexico city)

Tanguma isn’t painting an apocalyptic, world-ending solar flare. He is carrying on a tradition of Mexican muralists.

Only a few minutes of Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura, Season 1, Episode 7 is dedicated to the Denver International Airport. All of it is contained in the following clip. So there is no need for you to pay $2.50 to buy this episode as I did.

The deformed hands

  1. Show deformed hands (they are meant to catch your attention)
  2. Show the 666 in the open palms
  3. Show the ONLy open palm hand in the other panel of the same mural. It is in front of a Gemanic boy. Then show the OVERSIZED HAND of the German boy in the center of this panel.
  4. The message is that “There are Germans here and something evil is happening.”


his is somewhat unfortunate because I should think it difficult to digest all at once. No, I am not talking about the 666 I propose Leo Tanguma represents in the palms of three outstretched hands. I expect you to see that much. What would be difficult to impossible to digest so rapidly is the meaning of the hand is this photograph:

Description of the larger of the two muraals:

From DIA Conspiracies Take Off on the Westword (a neighborhood in Denver, Colorado) website:

“The first part of the environmental mural is about the ways that humans destroy nature and themselves through destruction and genocide. The second part is about humanity coming together to rehabilitate nature and revive their own compassion.”

“In Peace and Harmony with Nature”

The bottom of the mural is lined with open coffins. There are a number of different endangered or extinct species of animals. Some of these specimens are encased in plexiglass with readable labels. At the center of the mural is a young woman weeping over a dead leopard (or cheetah).

Death is everywhere is this mural. In the background, what appears at first glance to be a forest is on fire.
The is no peace and harmony with nature in this mural. Why is the artist trying to say?
The artist is inviting you to look closer, to think, “Why did he name this “In Peace and Harmony with Nature“? This mural, more so than any other at the Denver International Airport, is imbued with meaning. It reads like a book.

As I said, I expect you to see the six. There are three such hands in this m

It is unfortunate that this page is a portal for many first time visitors.

The artist, Leo Tanguma, apparently found himself in essentially the same situation as Stanley Kubrick while the latter was faking the moon landings. His employers necessarily told him everything. In other words, Leo Tanguma knows what is about to happen. He doubtless also knows Kubrick was eventually murdered because of his cinematic work. Expect some measure of subtlety here.

The only calm is the little German boy off to the right who is hugging a squirrel surrounded by lush green ferns. Tucked quietly behind all of this is a young Mayan (Leo Tanguma is Mayan) girl holding a stone the face of which has been carved.

Books burning

What you see in the background are the Mayan books burning, not trees.

The smoke above the modern city is a reference to The Three Days of Darkness that Catholics believe will follow the event.

Germans, Germans, Germans

Germans, Germans, Germans. There are Germans everywhere. Why? What does it mean? It means
Germans, Germans, Germans. There are Germans everywhere.” This is Leo Tanguma speaking directly to you, the observer. And what he is telling you is a simple truth about DIA. There are Germans everywhere. And they are at the center of everything. On the left panel, they are at the center of intellectual attention. In the right panel, they are quite literally in the center of the panel.
He’s not talking about the past. He’s talking about the present. He’s talking about DIA. I wasn’t on the ground for more than an hour when I encountered a large group of them. And i should know. I lived in Germany, and I look more German than most of them do.

DA: It is interesting when you consider Operation Paperclip wherein all these Nazi’s were brought to the United States to be groomed, financed, and basically brought back into power.

AC: Well, I know they’re here, because I have seen them alongside the Americans in the more sensitive areas of the airport.

Dave Alan interview of Alex Christopher on KSCO radio, transcript on Leading Edge International Research Group at www.trufax.org/reports/denver.html, May 1, 1996

The undercover security forces at DIA are basically gangs of young German men. My best guess would be that they are second generation Operation Paperclip immigrants.

The little blonde-haired boy off to the side represents the Beast. He is a psychopathic German, petting a squirrel while standing in front of a Bison trophy. The message is clear.

He is not whole as the secret societies claim, but has killed off his feminine side or self. Here is the reality of unleashing this monster on the world:

These are Bison bones. But let’s looker deeper at the symbolism.

The deformed hands

Now let us look a little deeper. Notice all the deformed hands:

The artist is drawing you attention to something, but what? The obvious answer is the 666 incorporated into the mural. Go back up to the top of the page and see if you can find it for yourself. There are three fully stretched out, opened-palm hands in the mural. They beg your attention in that regard. Look closely at the white highlighting. One of the palms are reversed. Don’t expect this stuff to fall in your lap. Tanguma has the same problem as Kubrick of staying true to himself as an artist while staying alive at the same time. The six is the most obvious in the the most important hand, which it to the far right. Here is a different magnification of that hand:

Notice that sharp contrast the artist is using to make this particular hand stand out from the rest. I will continue this discussion of the hands in the next section.

They image includes a “QUETZAL” bird marked “Extinct ?” as shown in this closeup:

The long tail feather makes it obvious that this is actually a resplendent quetzal, which Wikipedia discusses as follows:

Myth and legend

The resplendent quetzal was considered divine, associated with the “snake god”, Quetzalcoatl by Pre-Columbian Mesoamerican civilizations. Its iridescent green tail feathers, symbols for spring plant growth, were venerated by the ancient Aztecs and Maya, who viewed the quetzal as the “god of the air” and as a symbol of goodness and light. The Maya also viewed the quetzal symbolizing freedom and wealth, due to their view of quetzals dying in captivity and the value of their feathers, respectively. Mesoamerican rulers and some nobility of other ranks wore headdresses made from quetzal feathers, symbolically connecting them to Quetzalcoatl… In several Mesoamerican languages, the term for quetzal can also mean precious, sacred, or erected…One Mayan legend claims that the quetzal used to sing beautifully before the Spanish conquest, but has been silent ever since; it will sing once again only when the land is truly free.

Wikipedia, Resplendent quetzal

Leo Tanguma is Mayan. His question mark after the word “Extinct” is obviously him praying for his people. But something much more profound is happening here.

The Encoded Message

Two of the resplendent quetzal tail feathers cross forming a plus sign. One points to the Sun and the other to the outstretched hand symbolizing the number five. The Sun to which the one tail feather points is carved into stone, representing the knowledge the Spanish and Catholic church did not (or rather could not) fully destroy. (The Spanish did not discover the “New World.” They were sent there along with the Catholic church for the express purpose of destroying its history, with the express purpose of covering the tracks of the Beast in Central and South America. This is an entirely different subject which I must address in its fullness elsewhere on this website.)

The message here is the most sacred Leo Tanguma has to offer. It is the same as the shamans message of “y un poco,” only it is very specific. The message is to add five to the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar. It is reinforced by the end date of December 16, 2013, which is five days before the winter solstice. The message is to add five years to the end of the calendar. This is what I call the Great Wayeb, which is discussed elsewhere on this website. The calendar itself includes what I call an “anti-cipher” to this end, assuring those who pursue this knowledge that they are interpreting it correctly.

The next panel shows children of the world gathered around a “gigantic psychedelic plant of some kind. And they’re all extolling that all the races are going to live together in a world of peace.”

The Second Mural is a Ship about to be Inundated

guote bible about whne they say peace death will come (Revelation?)

From DIA Conspiracies Take Off on the Westword (a neighborhood in Denver, Colorado) website:

The soldier in the mural could be any soldier. “That’s why I put a mask on him,” Tanguma explains. “I didn’t want to make him white or black. I wanted to make him villainous to give that aspect of something vile, something real, something mean.”

Original source documentation

This next section is very important because almost every DIA conspiracy video ever made including Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura, Season 1, Episode 7 discussed below and the overwhelming majority of DIA conspiracy webpages cite facts from one or more of these DIA “Research Center” documents

Archived copies of critically important DIA Research Center documents

Courtesy of the Internet Archive WayBack Machine, I have managed to secure a copy of the oft quoted “Fast Facts : Research Center” document which was posted at http://www.flydenver.com/diabiz/info/research/facts.asp from at least October 16, 2006 to March 30, 2009, all during which time it did not change. I want to preserve a copy of this document on my own website for the convenience of my readers and for historical reasons. Also preserved in this section are two other documents to which “Fast Facts : Research Center” links. Those are “Passenger Facilities : Research Center” and “Aviation Facilities : Research Center”. The latter links to a “Cargo Facilities” document which is just an image. That image is included at the bottom of this section. Thus this is a complete set of invaluable documents for anyone studying the Denver International AirPort. Why DIA stop publishing them in unknown.

These are the hard facts, straight from the horses mouth. I use them extensively on this page

There can be no more authoritative source that the “Research Center” of the Denver International Airport.

Anytime you see —DIA Research Center as an attribution on this page, it is a reference to one of these three documents

Archived Images Notes: Menu items were excluded. Three images from the “Passenger Facilities : Research Center” document are missing from all archived copies. Otherwise the formatting is true to the originals, which can be seen on the Internet Archive Wayback Machine.

To make it easier for you (and me) to scan these documents for data I use on this page, I am using a yellow highlighter on all of the text I think merits attention in the context of this discussion

Fast Facts : Research Center

Denver International Airport is the only major airport to be built in the United States in the last 25 years. The current facility can accommodate 50 million passengers a year without any additional construction.

Denver International Airport At A Glance

  • Opening Date: February 28, 1995
  • Location: 23 miles (36.8 km) northeast of downtown Denver
  • Latitude: 39 degrees, 50 minutes, 57.8 seconds
  • Longitude: 104 degrees, 40 mintues, 23.9 seconds
  • Elevation: 5,431 feet above sea level
  • Size: 34,000 acres (13,600 hectares), 53 square miles (137.8 sq. km)
  • Runways: six; five are 12,000 feet (3,640 meters) long and the sixth is 16,000 feet (4,853 meters) long
  • Terminal building: Elrey B. Jeppesen Terminal (dual-sided)
  • Concourses: three airside concourses — A, B and C
  • Gates: 93, including access gates to commuter facilities
  • Number of passenger airlines: 30

Fast Facts

  • Nearly 2.9 million cubic yards of concrete were used to construct six runways, taxiways and aprons.
  • The Jeppesen Terminal roof is 126 feet from the terminal floor to its highest point and is supported by 34 masts and 10 miles of steel cable. The two rows of masts are 150 feet apart. The roof system uses a catenary cable system similar to that of the Brooklyn Bridge and relies on design curvature and equalization of the fabric’s internal stress fields for stability and the ability to support wind and snow loads. The roof membrane weighs less than two pounds per square foot, a total of approximately 400 tons.
  • A quarry in Marble, Colorado, supplied the white marble used on areas of the terminal walls. This stone is from the same quarry that supplied marble for the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the Lincoln Memorial.
  • DIA’s 327-foot FAA control tower is one of the tallest in North America. There are 548 stairs from ground level to the top and the average walking time is 20 minutes. The tower is engineered to sway only one-half inch in an 86-mile-per-hour wind.
  • The airport site, though relatively flat, was lowered in some areas and raised in others, requiring the moving of 110 million cubic yards of earth. 110 million cubic yards is approximately one-third the amount of dirt moved during the Panama Canalproject. This amount of earth, if dumped into a single pile, would cover 32 city blocks to a depth of one-quarter mile.
  • DIA has a fiber optic communications spine with 5,300 miles of cable. That is enough cable to run from New York City to Buenos Aires, Argentina. That length is longer than the River Nile. The airport’s 11,365 miles of copper cable would be enough to run from Los Angeles to Paris and back.
  • The fueling system at DIA is capable of pumping 1,000 gallons of jet fuel per minute through a 28-mile network of pipes. Each of the six fuel farm tanks holds 65,000 barrels (2.73 million gallons) of jet fuel. The 28 miles of fuel pipe would extend from Idaho Springs, Colorado, to the summit of Mt. Evans.
  • Denver International Airport has 1,500 flight and baggage information display monitors.
  • The passenger bridge between the Jeppesen Terminal and Concourse A is 365 feet long, weighs 3,300 tons and the bottom of the bridge is 45.61 feet above the taxiway pavement at the highest point of its arc.
  • Runways were built in layers, beginning with six feet of compacted, non-expansive soil, followed by a rototilled 12-inch layer of lime-treated soil to form a subgrade. On top of the subgrade are eight inches of a cement-treated base, topped with 17 inches of concrete.
  • Jeppesen Terminal has more than 1.5 million square feet of space.

Passenger Facilities : Research Center

Elrey B. Jeppesen Terminal
Denver International Airport’s terminal building is named for businessman and aviation pioneer Elrey B. Jeppesen, whose “Jepp” navigational maps and charts are standard equipment in most commercial airline cockpits around the world. Denver architectural firm Fentress Bradburn Architects Ltd. designed Jeppesen Terminal.

The terminal has approximately 1.5 million square feet (135,000 square meters) of public space, including a central atrium that is walled by glass and covered by a translucent tensile membrane roof.

  • The 1,200-foot-long (364 meter) terminal is longer than Chicago’s Sears Tower is tall. The terminal’s atrium is 900 feet (273 meters) long and 210 feet (63.7 meters) wide.
  • Varieties of granite from around the world – Asia, Africa, Europe and North and South America – are used in the terminal floor. The floor pattern echoes the roof design and subtly reinforces directions of passenger flow.

Departing passengers arrive at the dual-sided Jeppesen Terminal via Peña Boulevard, the airport roadway. The roadway divides to Terminal West and Terminal East, but also separates into three traffic levels for greater convenience and less traffic congestion:

Departures (Level 6) – Departing passengers, curbside baggage check-in and airline ticketing.
Taxi, Van, Shuttle Services (Level 5) – Drop-off and pick-up lanes for taxis, car-rental vans, shuttles, buses, limousines.
Arrivals (Level 4) – Passenger pick-up.

Two central security-screening areas are located at entrances to the airport subway system (AGTS). The AGTS links Jeppesen Terminal with Concourses A, B and C. A third security-screening area is available for people walking to Concourse A via a glass-enclosed bridge.

Flight information monitors are located at each subway station entrance, and baggage information monitors are located near baggage-claim carousels.

Car rental and ground transportation carrier counters are in the terminal’s atrium between the security-screening areas. International arrivals proceed through FIS and U.S. Customs at the north end of Terminal Level 5.

Terminal Roof
Jeppesen Terminal’s white-peaked roof consists of two translucent layers of Teflon-coated fiberglass fabric independently supported by cables held in tension. At its highest point, the roof is 126 feet above the terminal’s main floor. Total cost of the roof was $36 million.

The fabric is highly resistant to dirt and pollution and provides long life with minimal maintenance. The terminal roof required approximately 375,000 square feet of material, and the adjacent curbside roof required 75,000 square feet.

Thirty-four masts and 10 miles of cable, ranging from ¾ to 3-1/8 inches in diameter, support the roof, which weighs approximately 400 tons or 1.5 pounds per square foot. The fabric has a tensile strength of 500,000 pounds per square inch.

Denver International Airport has three concourses (Concourse A, B and C) beyond secruity screening that provide access to the airline gates. Concourses B anc C are accessible from Jeppessen Terminal only via the airport subway system. Concourse A can be reached by walking the passenger bridge or by taking the subway train from the terminal.

Concourse A
Accessible by train from Jeppesen Terminal or by our unique walkway which spans the airplane taxiway and gives travelers a closeup view of the airplanes as they move to their gates. Contains gates A24 through A68 and serves domestic carriers Continential, Frontier, Frontier JetExpress (Horizon), Great Lakes, and jetBlue. International carriers British Airways, Mexicana, Air Canada and Lufthansa also serve their customers from this concourse.

Concourse B
Accessible only by train from Jeppesen Terminal. Concourse B contains Gates B15 through B95 and serves United and United Express, as well as commuter flights through the Regional Jet Facility.

Concourse C
Accessible only by train from Jeppesen Terminal. Gates C28 trhough C50 serve domestic carriers AirTran, Alaska/Horizon, American, Big Sky, Delta, Midwest, Northwest, Southwest and US Airways.

The Train (Or Automated Guideway Transit System)
DIA’s master plan was based on using an Automated Guideway Transit System (AGTS) to transport passengers between the landside terminal and the airside concourses. The AGTS is an essential part of the overall DIA transportation system. It provides a fast and efficient link between ground transportation and air transportation. The AGTS is a critical component in the successful operation of the airport, providing quick passenger mobility through the airport’s public facilities.

The system incorporates fully automated, bi-directional trains that operate in two dedicated tunnels beneath DIA. Train cars, under automatic control, run on rubber tires along concrete guideways that are in a pinched-loop configuration. Each car has four pairs of wheels that lock it to a center steel guide beam anchored to the guideway. The rubber tires of the cars allow a smooth and quiet ride.

The Automated Guideway Transit System operates with a quartet of four-car trains and carries approximately 8,300 passengers per hour in both directions, completing a 2.4-mile roundtrip in 11 minutes, stopping at seven stations to load and unload passengers.

The system operates within a TSA-secured environment. Stations and train cars are fully handicapped accessible. Station platform windows allow passengers to see incoming trains, and large side and end car windows allow a clear view of the stations and of the art installations in the train tunnels. Fire-resistant doors on each car and station platform open automatically when a train arrives at its stop. Sensors prevent doors from closing when a door opening is not clear. Regardless of the passenger load, the vehicles automatically level themselves to match the floor height of the station platform for easy entry and exit.

Because of DIA’s expanse, it is not feasible for passengers to walk from the terminal to most departing gates. The AGTS, as a critical system, was built with redundancy and reliability, designed to ensure continuous movement of passengers by switching automatically to a reduced-service mode in case of a failure. Eleven reduced-service modes, including run-around and shuttle modes, are designed into the DIA system.

Audio and visual announcements in the stations and on the train provide passengers with emergency information. An emergency walkway was built along the entire length of the guideway, with emergency exits located every 400 feet in the train tunnels to facilitate passenger evacuation in an emergency. An elaborate smoke alarm and exhaust system was installed in the tunnels, and the power distribution system has redundant features to minimize the impact of a system failure. An uninterruptible power supply ensures that life-safety, communications and emergency equipment continues to operate even if primary power fails. The AGTS central control is located next to command centers for airport maintenance, operations and police for easy communication and coordination.

The contract to design and to provide the system was awarded to AEG Transportation Inc. in June 1990. The system underwent extensive acceptance testing and verification before DIA opened to ensure safety and dependability. DIA’s AGTS is the first airport transit system to fully address the National Fire Protection Association 130 Standard for fixed guideway transit systems. The design of the system has incorporated expansion to allow easy growth as the airport accommodates future traffic.

Passenger Bridge
A bridge spanning airport taxiways, linking an airside concourse with the landside terminal, is Denver International Airport’s unique solution to providing a sterile corridor between international gates and the area for Federal Inspection Services and Customs.

This double-level glass and steel bridge arcs 365 feet from DIA’s Concourse A to Jeppesen Terminal, allowing international passengers to move from their arrival gates up over the bridge’s sterile top level to the terminal for FIS and Customs processing. The lower level gives domestic passengers the option of walking between the concourse and the terminal instead of taking the underground rail system.

Every effort was made to enhance the experience of users. The bridge lines are based on clean, simple geometry that emphasizes the openness of the structure, allowing for maximum exterior views.

As passengers walk over the span, much of DIA’s airfield is visible. When they look beyond the airfield they can see prairie to the east, and to the west are views of Downtown Denver and a Rocky Mountain panorama. Passengers also can look down as arriving and departing aircraft taxi beneath them. Structural designers accomplished a major feat by connecting the concourse and terminal while providing tail and wing clearance for two commercial airliners to taxi side-by-side under the bridge.

The exterior curtain walls of the bridge consist of all-glass panels that complement adjacent DIA facilities. Because of the intense physical challenges offered by the project — such as control of heat deflections and thermal movement — the airport chose a structural engineering firm to lead the design team. The bridge truss has some of the largest structural steel elements produced in the United States and uses huge bearings at the massive concrete abutments, allowing the bridge to accommodate up to six inches of thermal movement.

The bridge has its own HVAC, fire-protection and smoke-evacuation systems, and it is tied into the airport-wide fire-detection, security and public address systems.

Electric carts that the airlines use to transport elderly or disabled passengers between ticket counters and aircraft gates can easily navigate the bridge. Two moving sidewalks take perambulating travelers both directions over the span as a sound system plays Native American music, giving arrivals an authentic first impression of the West.

Aviation Facilities : Research Center


Denver International Airport has four north-south runways and two east-west runways. The concourses and Jeppesen Terminal are in the center of the airfield.

Air controllers can shift traffic quickly from one runway to another, depending on wind direction, with minimal delays or disruption of air traffic. No runway crosses another, minimizing the chance of aircraft traffic jams or collisions.

Each runway approach is equipped with Instrument Landing Systems. The southern approaches to the four parallel runways are rated Category III-b, allowing auto-landing in the lowest visibility conditions.

Three of the four parallel runways are at least 4,300 feet apart, the minimum required by the Federal Aviation Administration for simultaneous landings in instrument flight conditions (bad weather). Dual or triple streams of aircraft can land simultaneously at DIA in such conditions, reducing system delays.

Five of DIA’s runways are 12,000 feet (3,658 meters) long and 150 feet (46 meters) wide. The airport’s sixth and newest runway, 16R/34L, is 16,000 feet (4,870 meters) long and 200 feet (60 meters) wide. The runways are nearly twice as thick as an average road. DIA’s design specifications exceed FAA certification requirements for runways.

Airfield Lighting
Lights embedded in the centerlines of DIA’s taxiways and runways help pilots navigate when visibility is poor. Lighted stop bars at taxiway/runway intersections help keep unauthorized aircraft and vehicles off active runways.

Deicing is available at four deicing pads located west of the concourses just off the apron perimeter taxiway. A fifth pad is located near the cargo apron.

  • Each pad accommodates as many as five or six aircraft at one time.
  • Aircraft rarely have to queue after deicing because the pads are located close to the north-south 16/34 runways. Planes can proceed to takeoff shortly after leaving a pad.
  • Deicing fluids are collected and piped into storage tanks for recycling.

Cargo Facilities
Around midnight, dormant airport warehouses and silent ramps come alive as air freight carriers arrive, and workers unload, sort, and reload almost every conceivable cargo shipment—from perishables to precision instruments to telecommunications equipment.

DIA’s efficient airfield and its 39-acre cargo ramp make freight handling easy. But the airfield’s prime cargo asset is the absence of operational curfews.

The airport’s dedicated cargo carriers and integrators—FedEx, UPS, DHL, and Integrated Airline Services—are in three buildings at the south side of the airfield. Nearby is the U.S. Postal Service and United Airlines’ cargo facility. United daily transports approximately 500,000 pounds of freight in its passenger aircraft.

Last year, 25 percent of DIA’s air cargo flew on passenger flights. Most of DIA’s passenger airlines use a 110,200-square-foot joint-use belly-cargo building, located close to the airport’s fixed-base operator: Signature.

West of the airport’s freight operations is WorldPort at DIA. Two 50,000-square-foot buildings offer space for freight forwarders, customs brokers, and other businesses that contribute to an efficient air cargo operation in Denver. A portion of this area is a Foreign Trade Zone. Within 20 miles of the airport are 50 freight forwarders and customs brokers.

In addition to refrigeration facilities and bonded areas, DIA has U.S. Customs and U.S. Department of Agriculture clearance services.

For information regarding cargo opportunities at DIA contact Jerry Kanter, business development manager, at (303) 342-2531, or by e-mail: [email protected].

General Aviation
Signature-Denver, a fixed-base operator, has a 9,200-square-foot-executive terminal at DIA and an additional 23,000 square foot heated hangar. The terminal features a restaurant, pilot and passenger lounges, a flight planning room and conference rooms. Signature also provides airline fueling and deicing.

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Facilities
The FAA’s Terminal Radar Approach Control (TRACON) facility, located about three miles south of DIA’s Terminal complex, houses air traffic controllers who coordinate aircraft flights within a 45-mile radius up to an altitude of 24,000 feet.

FAA Control Tower
The Federal Aviation Administration control tower at Denver International Airport was designed by Leo A. Daly and served as a prototype for the FAA’s control-tower design.

The 327-foot tower, located on the south side of Concourse C, was the tallest FAA structure in North America when it was built. Its 33 stories give air traffic controllers a nearly unobstructed view of all aircraft activity at DIA. General Contractor M.A. Mortenson Co.’s Federal Contracting Group began building the tower in May 1991 and finished in November 1992. Installation and fine-tuning of the sophisticated FAA equipment continued until DIA opened on Feb. 28, 1995.

The first 240 feet of the tower’s walls are built of precast structural concrete 20 inches thick, reinforced with #14 rebar. Each 12-by-11-foot panel weighs 16 tons. The final 87 feet of the tower consist of the mushroom-shaped top, built of structural steel, and the cab. The special distortion-free glass in the cab windows is 1.5 inches thick (two half-inch sheets with a half-inch air space between). The 850-square-foot tower cab is one of the FAA’s largest. A dozen controllers can work in the cab to direct air traffic at DIA, the 11th-busiest airport in the world in 2005.

An exterior walkway around the tower cab provides access for maintenance, as well as a bird’s-eye view of the airport complex. Corner balconies house microwave equipment to provide a 360-degree transmitting capability. A penthouse perched atop the cab holds air-surface detection radar equipment. The area below the cab contains mechanical and communications equipment, administrative and personnel-support offices and a cable-access level.

At the bottom, the tower foundation extends 45 feet below ground and rests on a nine-foot pile cap. The cap is supported by 34 caissons that extend another 38 to 40 feet underground, making the entire foundation about 94 feet deep. This intricate design and construction result in not only one of the tallest FAA towers ever built, but one of the strongest and safest. The tower is engineered to sway only one-half inch in an 86-mile-per-hour wind.

Five-thousand tons of concrete and 650 tons of steel went into the $8.5 million structure, which plays an important role in DIA’s goal of being the most efficient and most modern airport in the world.

FAA Equipment
Final Monitor Aids (FMA) help TRACON controllers coordinate triple independent simultaneous landings at DIA, the first airport in the world to have such operations. The FMA system uses radar, computers and color monitors to give real-time tracking information to controllers who are monitoring the final approaches of landing aircraft.

Two Airport Surveillance Radars (ASR-9s) provide airspace tracking information to FAA controllers.

Twenty-nine wind speed and direction sensors provide crucial wind-shear information to a central computer that reports to air traffic controllers. Working in conjunction with this alert system is Terminal Doppler Weather Radar, which tracks storms and is useful in locating microburst activity.

ASDE-III (Airport Surface Detection Equipment) radar enables controllers to monitor airport ground traffic and is especially valuable when weather obscures part of the airfield.

Linking this technology and other FAA facilities and systems is a network of more than 800,000 feet (152 miles) of fiber optic cable. All of the FAA’s navigational, warning and controlling systems at DIA give the airport the most advanced aviation technology available.

The Phil Schneider story

“Phil Schneider claimed during the last year of constuction that the underground airport system was being connected to a deep underground base”

“A man named Phil Schneider claimed during the last year of construction that the underground airport system was being connected to a deep underground base. The base is at least 8 levels deep, with a 4.5 square mile underground city and an 88.5 square mile base underneath the airport.”

all [DIA conspiracies are] rooted in a 1996 radio interview with Alex Christopher, an interview whose transcription has been republished on hundreds of websites.

For the Record: Alex Christopher

Who is Alex Christopher? This is a very important question if you are a student of the Denver International Airport, which is why I highly value the following text from the Westword (a neighborhood in Denver, Colorado) website. Please note that as of this writing on November 27, 2018, Alex Christopher would be 77 years old and I have no idea if she is still alive or whether or not she is still living in Alabama.

Although the DIA conspiracies have branched off into wild ideological directions, they’re all rooted in a 1996 radio interview with Alex Christopher, an interview whose transcription has been republished on hundreds of websites. Many theorists surmise that the man quoted in this transcription is dead.

Actually, Christopher is a 65-year-old grandmother living in Alabama.

Christopher first became interested in the New World Order in the mid-’80s, and she started writing a book on the subject. In the mid-’90s, she came to Denver for the Global Sciences Congress conference, where she gave a lecture on her theories about aliens and the globalist agenda. People there were talking about how odd the long-delayed airport was, “and I started looking at all the murals and floors and weirdness,” she remembers. “I got really intrigued.”

At the conference, she met people who she claims took her into DIA’s underground tunnels. The first time, she went with a man who worked there. “It was really spooky,” she remembers. Then she returned with fellow conspiracy theorist Phil Schneider, and they went down four levels.

That was enough to convince Christopher that something funny was going on at DIA. “As far as I know, I’m the one who started all that,” she acknowledges.

She went with a few family members to visit Tanguma at his studio, where he was working on the second mural. “And I asked him, ‘Where on earth are you coming up with this material from?’ And he said, ‘Well, it’s just a collection, a collage.’ And he had a lot of books in his studio that had strange pictures,” she remembers.

“I understand that he didn’t have free rein on those things,” Christopher continues. “He was given an outline of what was supposed to be in the murals. And I tried to talk to him about what I thought, and he wasn’t buying it at all. Evidently he was bought and paid for, because there was no talking to him. And his mind was totally shut down to what he was depicting.”

Christopher, on the other hand, was open to hearing anything. A man called her and said he had found an elevator at DIA that led to a corridor that led all the way down into a military base that also contained alien-operated concentration camps. She detailed this theory in her next book, Pandora’s Box II, and in 1996 was a guest on an esoteric California radio show hosted by Dave Alan. There she outlined her theory that the British secretly control the United States, as shown in the “secret society” symbolism of the Tanguma murals.

But then Phil Schneider turned up dead — officials determined it was a suicide, but conspiracy theorists recognized it as an assassination, and he has since become a martyr for underground-base believers. Christopher became fearful for her life and her children’s safety. “And so for them, I shut up and disappeared and decided to see if somebody would take the material and let it take on a life of its own so that their focus would be somewhere else,” she says.

And Christopher has tried to stay hidden, which has led to even more conspiracies. “Everybody thinks I’m dead or they think I’m a man,” she says. “My daughter and I have a real good chuckle over it.” But she’s grown tired of how “notorious” her KSCO interview has become, as others pick apart and misquote her work to serve their own conspiracy-theory agendas.

She’s now working on an updated version of her books, which she says may even include a DVD containing photographic proof of DIA’s underground labyrinth.

Westword.com, DIA Conspiracies Take Off by Jared Jacang Maher, August 30, 2007

Her “photographic proof” is included at the end of this section. It is unremarkable. Please note that no discussion of this subject is complete without documenting the impact of Alex Christopher on Internet-based conspiracy theorists. I neither endorse nor necessarily believe anything she says. In fact, I think everything she says is suspect. Also, if you decide to pursue the Phil Schneider connection to all of this, beware; he strains credulity. I am perhaps the last person on earth who should say that, but my encounter with ET deeply imprinted on me the belief that these “people” are profoundly peaceful. I cannot believe his accounts of having encountered a hostile “reptilian” ET race.

At the time of this writing, I am inclined to think of both Alex Christopher and Phil Schneider as sensationalists seeking fame and fortune or as integral parts of a massive disinformation campaign. I just cannot take them seriously.

Pandora’s Box

An article on The DIA Conspiracy Files website (self-described as “An index of the theories surrounding the world’s most sinister airport”) states:

In 1996, [Leo Tanguma] was visited by Alex Christopher while she was in Denver researching for her book Pandora’s Box II, which features lengthy chapters on DIA and deconstructs Tanguma’s airport murals.

The original 1993 book does not discuss the Denver International Airport, but the last two pages of the 1994 revision from above includes the following introductory note for Pandora’s Box II.

Spokane, Washington

Dear Friends,

We are in the final stages of finishing a new book, on the inter connecting structure that our friends in the government are preparing for us, and for people from other countries. What they are preparing is a form of new free government housing, which they call concentration camps. I am working with interrelated information from such people as Bob Fletcher and Ted Gunderson and others.

We are trying to put an up to the very minute information guide together. It is an in depth look at the hidden agenda of the new, very costly, and why it was so very costly, Denver International Airport and what its real name is. How FEMA was involved with its planning, who the major stockholder of DIA is, there is more to DIA underground than above. Never before photographs of the underground portions of DIA. The New Age, Masonic, lUuminti and New World Order influence on the airport. Plans for the airport in the future as a central control center. The airport connections to the vast underground bullet train system and other underground concentration camps in the U.S. and in other countries. The vastness of the DIA complex. This interlocking information has not been brought to light before. You will be among the first to get the inside look and information. A video is also in the making for the DIA information to be out before the end of the year.

Introducing another book called “The United Nations Exposed” which was written about 1950 by a preacher with the help of a congressman. This book has be discuss on the video done by Bob Fletcher of the Militia of Montana called INNOVATION AND BETRAYAL. This amazing book tells everything about what the people that make up the United Nations belief system is based on. Which is the corrupt anti-Christ system. Everything they plan to do to the people of the world is described and how they planned to accomplish their goals. It even talks about GATT, NATO, UNESCO, National Suicide, Global Government, Communist Control, Mass-murder program of communism. Human Liquidation, Minorities to have absolute power. Weather Control as a weapon. Disarming of the Americans and the world. Financial Control and much more. This book is not available anywhere else to our knowledge. Only $22.00, including shipping.

The new “Pandora’s Box II”, The Denver International Airport Report will be available for shipping October 1, 1995. The book is $25.00. this includes shipping. Please send money order if possible, to order send to:

Pandora’s Box: The Ultimate “Unseen Hand” behind the New World Order, 1993 (Revised Fall of 1994)

For the record, I do not recommend sending your money to this address. Alex Christopher is last reported to have been living in Alabama.

You can read the introduction to the book in the full text edition on the Internet Archive website, but the following blurb seems to be unique to the WHALE.to website. It’s not clear where they got it from, but it appears to be unique and does not appear in the full text edition, so I wanted to include it here. The formatting was left as is. No changes have been made.

“Pandora’s Box Millennium Edition is a new update of the original version of the book. Since it was first published in 1993 many things have happened in the world and with myself and my family. In the time since 1993 I have lost my mother, then my father got ill and I spent many years caring for him and he passed away also. My spouse has put both of us through much with is twelve major surgeries that he has had. In short life has not been fun at all. The books caused me so much harassment in life that while I was dealing with family issues it was just to much on me to deal with shadow people’s crap because I wrote the book. Beside a fellow by the name of David Ike decided that it was alright for him to take all of my material along with Alex Colliers’ and Phil Sparks’ information and use it to create his The Biggest Secret and others. Our books is where he got a large portion of his material without our permission. In some cases he copied my book almost word for word. When I discovered what had happened I decided that it was a good time to let someone else take the heat for a while. I was really busy with my family issues.

In all of these years I have never really stopped researching the information or the cause and reason for writing the book in the first place. With the advent of the internet and the huge amount of information that is on the internet now I can take my research to a higher level than I could fifteen years ago. I have discovered that the man that I worked for Mr. Donald Beatty was a little bit less than totally honest with me about some of the information that he gave me or else he really did not know to begin with.

With my research and new discoveries I have gone back in the book and updated old information with a more accurate up to day version, I have changed incorrect information and fixed names, places and dates, I have added accurate genealogies on the primary families of interest in the book. I have added about four chapters and I have taken some information that was not needed out and added more important information. I have scanned and cleaned up really old documents so they are clearer and added many new pictures and graphics.

The information in this book with the links to the gray men was released by the family that at one time controlled every form of transportation, Communication and banking in this country to only two people. One of the two people wrote Pandora’s Box. You will not find this countries true history in any other authors book because they have not been privileged to this insider information that has been kept a secret for 200 hundred or more years. Everyone who does research into the background of what is happening in the United States and the world today is familiar with Epperson’s “Unseen Hand”. Four years of intense research produced a work which could be the “Unseen Hand Behind the Unseen Hand”.

Research for this fascinating book meant traveling around to state, county and federal courthouses all over the United States where documents were filed and taking great risks to uncover the hidden secrets that are in plain view for the public. It uncovers data that has been suppressed for over 150 years, and illustrates the real truth, backed by legal documents, of the hidden trusts and corporate owners, the family for whom J.P. Morgan and the Rockefellers were the front men for, and it was not the Rothschilds. the true origins of the CIA, who the hidden owners of one half of the United States are, the true issue of private land ownership, links to Old World money and family blood lines that trace back thousands of years.

The book details how Edison, Tesla and Westinghouse were involved, the aspects of this hidden history that are behind the current withdrawal of freedoms and the decimation of the world population, who really owns and controls your land, information on foreign military equipment in the united States, information on advanced technology being used on and against the world population. Find out who the one family is that truly owns the entire wealth of the United States – since over 364 of the Fortune 500 were originally found by this family, find out who has stolen and embezzled it away, despite ownership documents.

Incredible tie-ins to the alien problem, defense industrial complexes agenda. The ones that don’t want the truth out seized this book in the summer of 1994 in an effort to stop its publication, it has now been totally reworked, updated and revised with even more information than the original book.

All in all, an incredible piece of work. The book has 630 pages in 8 1/2 x 11 paperback bound format. They could try to stop publication again so don’t delay order your copy today. This is the only known book in the world that you will find this suppressed information which makes the book a one of a kind, and a real bargain at a price of only $US62.00, which includes media mail shipping. Add $5.00 more for Priority Mail shipping in the United States. For Canada and Mexico, $US75.00, includes airmail shipping. For International Customers the price is $US90.00, which includes International airmail shipping.”

Alex Christopher’s unremarkable “photographic proof”

Main Section: DIA Underground

An article on The DIA Conspiracy Files website (self-described as “An index of the theories surrounding the world’s most sinister airport”), begins:

In 1994, Alex Christopher and Phil Schneider gained access to the underground facilities beneath Denver International Airport before it officially opened.

Below are some of the photos they took, along with commentary written by Ms. Christopher in 1995:

But the pictures are unremarkable. I do not need them, however. I was there myself.

Intellihub “exclusive” by Shepard Ambellas, dated June 30, 2014

Original Article: Exclusive: Secret underground base beneath Denver International Airport now revealed by whistleblower

As of this writing on December 3, 2018, searching for “Secret underground base beneath Denver International Airport now revealed by whistleblower” returns 406 hits on Google. To say this story has been copied would be an understatement. The question here is Shepard Ambellas, who founded Intellihub.

Is he credible?

The title of this article is unnecessarily hyped. Confirmation of the five buried buildings and firsthand knowledge that they are in use makes this a profoundly important piece of journalism. This is what makes assessing Mr. Ambellas’s character so important. Is he telling the truth? I am inclined to believe him.

However, nothing in this article supports the contention that there exists a “deep underground military base (D.U.M.B.) located on the Denver International Airport’s property” as suggested by the following excerpt from a Shepard Ambellas professional bio (doubtless self-written) on the Intellihub website.

Ambellas also appeared on the Travel Channel series America Declassified where he also conducted an independent investigation of the deep underground military base (D.U.M.B.) located on the Denver International Airport’s property. During the investigation, Ambellas was able to obtain a whistleblower’s first-hand testimony

Intellihub.com, Shepard Ambellas, (accessed December 3, 2018)

The referenced Travel Channel “America DeClassified” episode is named Denver Airport Underground: Could there be a secret bunker hidden beneath Denver International?. It’s an interesting watch and a good way to get to know Shepard Ambellas better. Plus it includes footage of the inward-facing DIA security fence. 


There is actually an earlier version of this “Exclusive” dated May 11, 2013 (over a year earlier) and entitled Denver International Airport Whistleblower: Continuity of Government Plans Exposed. Why did he rehash this story? Was there new content added?


Let me be perfectly clear about something. DIA underground has nothing to do with an automated baggage system. That was a ruse. But neither is there a “deep underground military base (D.U.M.B.) located on the Denver International Airport’s property.” I mean no personal disrespect for Mr. Ambellas, but only an idiot would think that when the 1.08 billion year old Pikes Peak granite batholith is only about 40 miles away to the west. Do you want a few feet of dirt protecting you from the end of the world or granite? DIA is a reception center, nothing more, nothing less. The reason DIA (including the facilities underground) is so large is to process the unimaginable hordes of people in the last days when the airport will be inundated with inbound flights from Cessnas to military aircraft and helicopters to jumbo jets from all over the world. Everything ever done at DIA from its inception until the current $1.7 billion Great Hall (renovation) Project has been for those three or four days when the lucky few will be shunted off to the Front Range.

SPECIAL NOTE: Every effort has been made to preserve the original formatting. The YouTube video is missing in the original article on the Intellihub website, also. As with other original source material, I use a yellow highlighter to to mark text of particular interest to me. This yellow highlighting in not part of the original article.

Exclusive: Secret underground base beneath Denver International Airport now revealed by whistleblower
For the first time a whistle-blower from within the DIA complex confirms the existence of a massive deep underground military facility located beneath the airport

By Shepard Ambellas June 30, 2014

DENVER (INTELLIHUB) — The Denver International Airport (DIA) is nestled on a vast 53 square mile complex and is owned and operated by the City of Denver. In fact it’s the largest airport in the United States in terms of land mass garnered and the second largest airport in the world to Saudi Arabia’s King Fahd International Airport as I pointed out in my appearance on the Travel Channel series America Declassified.

The airport serves over 50 million passengers a year and is now incorporating a massive new project called “Airport City”, an aerotropolis, which has been presented publicly by the Mayor of Denver, Michael Hancock, who respectively declined an interview with Intellihub. However, interestingly, the new aerotropolis will incorporate an expansive business district with new lodging as well as an agricultural and technical district within the confines of the airport property to attract more revenue to Denver’s growing economy. Between the planned aerotropolis and Colorado’s booming marijuana industry, DIA just might be the next biggest thing since sliced bread.

The concept is innovative, a first for an airport in America, and is likely to become the envy of other airports around the world. According to Airport City Denver’s official website:

In 2010, DIA and the City and County of Denver took a major step in DIA’s evolution to fulfill its gateway role by inviting firms from around the world to submit proposals to assist DIA in planning, assessing and creating an Airport City at DIA as the core of and competitive accelerator for the emerging Denver aerotropolis. Later that year, DIA selected MXD Development Strategists (MXD) and its collaborative team including Design Workshop, CH2M Hill, Dr. John Kasarda, Integrity Parking, Transcore and Ambient Energy to prepare the Denver International Airport City Development Strategy.

But local residents and others have been questioning the new construction in and around the airport property as several red flags have been raised. Since the first construction phases of the airport started in the early 1990’s there have been several indicators that something else may be taking place on or under the grounds of the 53 square mile complex.

The Facility
Some speculate that a deep underground military facility that is part of the Continuity of Government (COG) program exists on the site. A massive underground city to be used by our government in the event that Washington or our Central Government’s command hub is compromised. According to some investigative reports, including one headed up by the former Governor of Minnesota Jesse Ventura, the underground city that lies beneath the airport quite possibly connects to other deep underground military installations throughout the country.

Additionally a source of mine within the airport confirmed for the first time astonishing information regarding the underground facility, providing details unknown to airport staff and the general public until now.

The following are details regarding a deep underground military installation located on the grounds of the DIA as provided by my source:

  • Level 1 of the airport is inset into the ground to protect from vibrations coming from underneath. The baseboard characteristics lead on to this by way of their technical design. The employees have been told the reason for this is to protect from vibrations from the public train that leads back and forth to all concourses, A, B, and C.
  • The airport’s gate and door numbers correspond to emergency action and response plans that indicate specific details to “people in the know”.
  • The design of the airport is built to throw people off as levels are labeled differently on each in some cases and grading changes make it difficult to pinpoint your actual elevation. This was a security feature added by the designers.
  • Due to alleged lawsuits or potentially staged events the United Airlines section ,which lies within one of one [sic] of the basement levels at DIA, is said to have an infectious mold/fungal outbreak that prompted officials to quarantine off areas of the underground making them inaccessible to the airport personnel. The quarantined section of the underground was confirmed by the source to be located in Concourse B’s East side lower levels.
  • The landfill located off of Tower Rd. two miles west of the Jeppesen Terminal was added onto in the early 2000’s despite the airports appeal to the District Court against the landfill in 2002 which claimed that it was an FAA safety hazard. The landfill has a functioning element to it but is “mocked-up” to look like a landfill hidden in plain sight. There isn’t much garbage in the landfill and is otherwise spotless.
  • There is a militarized ‘intermediary entrance’ located in the United Airlines section of the underground. The actual door number was reveled [sic] by my source with great hesitation. The cosponsoring door number is “BE64B” which has been unknown to the general public until now.
  • A swift door will also allow access to the intermediary entrance of the facility if you have the proper “speed-pass” clearance on a Department of Defense (DOD) level. This door was also a secret to the general public until now. The actual door number is “T-47 M” located on the level 4 exterior.
  • The dirt in parts of the train tunnels looks to be unnatural and “if anyone steps on it they know”, said my source.
  • Gates can “lock-down” certain sections of the airport in the event of an emergency.
  • A nearly 3 mile long tunnel heads out from the intermediary entrance “BE64B” to a full-blown Department of Defense (DOD) sanctioned militarized entrance nestled in a set of 5 buildings 120′ beneath the surface located Northeast of the Jeppesen Terminal.
  • All VIP activity typically originates under the Northwest section of “Concourse C”

Department of Defense Ties To Domestic Airline Carriers
New information uncovered by Intellihub investigators concludes that yes indeed the DOD has ties to at least one commercial airline carrier that operates out of the Denver International Airport.

Documents requested by a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by the Investigative Report Workshop [dead link] in 2004 reveal that “United Airlines, Inc” is involved in a DOD “Air Transportation Program” likely connected to COG. This contract would allow United Airlines to fly VIPs, sitting Senators, Congressmen, and top-level officials to-and-fro the main COG hub located on DIA grounds.

According to the Investigative Report Workshop, “The Department of Defense audits commercial air carriers it contracts with to fly DOD employees. The Workshop and PBS FRONTLINE sent a FOIA request to learn about United Airline’s maintenance procedures. Last year, we had sent the same request for another company and the audits proved to be very informative. This time, however, we received about 94 mostly blank pages.”

The Dirt Came From Somewhere

According to my source from inside a massive pile of dirt was added to an existing landfill in the area despite the FAA’s request that it was dangerous to travelers and could pose a radar issue causing a potential disaster. This addition to that landfill was pressed hard and was supposed to take place over a 40-60 year period, but instead took place over the course of about 4 years. The pile of dirt, which is masked as a landfill in-plain-sight, now exceeds 300′ in altitude.

An excerpt from the FAA appeal reads:

In the Hazard Determination and Affirmation, the FAA found that the Tower Road landfill at its proposed height “would be in the radar line of sight and vehicles [i.e., dump trucks and graders] operating at the landfill may cause radar reflection and consequently create false targets.” JA 7.

The Determination and Affirmation themselves provide no evidentiary basis for the “false target” finding. Indeed, we can find at most only two pages in a 462-page record to support it. The FAA’s aeronautical study reports that Airways Facility radar technicians have “identified the potential for false targets. At the current elevation of 5,423′ AMSL [above mean sea level], the landfill is below the radar line-of-sight. At the new height of 5,542′ AMSL, the large dump trucks, graders, and other heavy equipment create the potential for reflecting the radar and causing false targets…. The impact in this circumstance would be an erroneous position indication for the aircraft.”

The Denver Airport (Location) is part of a Continuity of Government Program and does indeed house an underground facility.

Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura, Season 1, Episode 7

Runtime: 43 minutes
Release date: January 12, 2010
Available for Sale on Amazon

This the “Apocalypse 2012” episode that is often cited when studying DIA. The video description reads “The world is heading for disaster in 2012 and the government is preparing to save and protect the elite- while leaving us to fend for ourselves.” The stuff related to DIA begins at 25:44 minutes into the video. Jesse Ventura meets Jay Weidner at DIA. These two do nothing but rehash a limited number of the conspiracies surrounding the airport. They contribute nothing to the discussion. Zip. Zero. Nada. I honestly do not think you should spend the money to purchase this episode. Though often cited by other “conspiracy theorists,” the only value it has is the (considerable) weight of Jess Venture’s stature as a former Governor of Minnesota. The episode contains no original research and no video footage of any interest unless you enjoy watching Governor Ventura staring intensely at everyone else in the video in a somewhat contrived effort to generate interest in the subject. This video was released before December 21, 2012 video that seeks to profit from the mystique of the whole 2012 phenomena.

2012 The Odyssey

This 2007 film was written and directed by Sharron Rose and produced by Jay Weidner. I believe this is a husband and wife team. Why am I discussing this film on a page about the DIA murals? Well, at 1:22:04 minutes into the film, Sharron Rose briefly visits DIA and discusses the murals. Much like the Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura episode in the previous section, this film does not add anything to the discussion. I thought it deserves mention because Jay Weidner has managed to stamp his name all over DIA and you may be inclined to think this film offers some new perspective on the subject. It does not.

What it does very well is remind me of all the hysteria, intellectual pretension, and hype surrounding the December 21, 2012 date and why people have since reacted so strongly to any suggestion whatsoever that the ancients are screaming at us and we may indeed be living in the end times. Nowadays, even mentioning the “Mayan” calendar invites ridicule, if not utter disdain. I talk about this at length in my Crying Wolf and December 12, 2012 section at the top of the № 2. Welcome Back! (to respect for the ancients) page.

Here is the movie trailer.

My real reason for mentioning this film is that it was while watching it that I learned for the first time about the idea of “planetary gestation” in the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar. This discovery is attributed to José Argüelles in his book The Mayan Factor: Path Beyond Technology. I briefly outline the subject here and discuss it in depth in the (as yet unwritten) “Planetary Gestation” in the Mesoamerican Long Count Calendar section of the № 35. Something Wonderful: Return of the Planet Gods, Polar Configuration, and Golden Age page.

The 260 day Tzolkin calendar is well known.

The 260-day Tzolk’in, or sacred calendar, is the oldest calendar cycle known in Mesoamerica, dating back to at least 600 BC. While some scholars are still searching for an astronomical basis for this cycle, most agree it was based on the nine month human gestation period.

What is not as well known, and what I learned for the first time while watching this film, is that the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar is 260 katuns (a period of 72,000 days). Exactly what the significance of this is I will need to explore after I read the book for more information, but I find the idea of “planetary gestation” profoundly interesting in light of the Ekpyrosis and the birth of Venus.

The gargoyles

As part of our walk around the airport, Montgomery stops in baggage claim and looks upward toward a gargoyle that’s sitting in a suitcase. “To some of the conspiracy theorists, this is a harbinger of something evil or nefarious,” Montgomery says. “But it’s not. It’s a fun piece of art.”

I look on the plaque below the grotesque and discover that the artist is Terry Allen. A few days later, I reach him at his home in Santa Fe. “I was invited to make a proposal. This was when Stapleton was still open, the old airport,” Allen says with a twang that harkens back to his hometown of Lubbock, Texas. It’s a familiar sound to those who have heard his music, most notably the cult classic outlaw concept albums, Juarez and Lubbock (On Everything). “We all met there and I remember there was a committee that included airport people, art people and even a nun. Right off there was a religious aspect to it.”

He says that he started thinking about what airports and baggage claims actually were. “And it might have been that nun that made me think, These are like cathedrals,” Allen says, as we touch on the massive failure that was DIA’s state-of-the-art baggage system, which frequently misplaced luggage (if you were lucky) or shredded it (if you weren’t). “The cathedral thing made me start thinking about gargoyles. The idea was to put the gargoyles in a suitcase and have them looming over the baggage claim as protectors, just like they were used in churches. I did one for domestic and then I did one for international, which was pretty much lifted right off an image from Notre-Dame. And that sealed the title for me: Notre Denver.

Allen installed the pieces in a completed-yet-empty DIA — aside from an operational Burger King for security staff — that was “like walking around at the end of the world.” Almost immediately, “moronic” church groups and others started to read into his gargoyles. “They would reach up into the suitcases and put cards that said things like ‘effigies of Satan’ or ‘you’re going to hell’ and they’d put bibles with stuff marked in them and all of these bizarre religious fanatic remarks about the gargoyles.”

When I ask him if he intended anything to be evil, he swiftly denies it. “It’s actually the opposite,” he says. “They’re protectors. Gargoyles are good demons. They face out from the church to keep the bad demons out. If I was being malicious, I could’ve been a lot more malicious than I was.”
