Nearly every theory swirling around the DIA Conspiracy holds to the idea that a massive underground military base is secretly hidden beneath Denver’s airport. But is the facility a HQ for the New World Order, as some posit, or is it a hideout for a an ancient race of half-human, half-reptile shape-shifters known alternatively as reptilians or reptiloids? The debate continues.
But there’s a middle path as well. “The Dulce Book” authored in 1999 by someone only identified as “Branton” is all about how the odd occurrences some report in the area surrounding Dulce, New Mexico (alien abductions, cattle mutilations, strange vibrations) can be attributed to a reptiloid-controlled military base buried deep inside a nearby mountain.

“And I looked, and behold a pale horse;
and his name that sat on him was
Death, and Hell followed with him. And
power was given unto them over the
fourth part of the earth, to kill with
sword, and with hunger, and with
death, and with the beasts of the earth”.

Interesting letter floating around the internets from the Wellington Webb era.
This anonymous writer doesn’t buy the underground city theory, but he does think DIA is a monument built for New Age masons. Or something. Check it:
I’ve done extensive research on DIA, living in Colorado for many years.
One of my good Christian friends is a fireman out there, who has worked
on the site, since before the first shovel of dirt was overturned.
Another fireman filmed many video cassettes of the place, as the
construction was underway.

This show on mysterious cattle mutilations in Colorado aired in 1994. The groundbreaking for DIA was 1989 and was supposed to have opened in 1993, but it was delayed two years. Coincidence?

Two other art pieces that add to the intriuge at DIA are the twin gargoyles sitting in suitcases. Titled “Notre Denver” the cast bronze sculptures by artist Terry Allen are found areas on the East and West ends of the Great Hall. They sit on top of pedestals, overlooking the the baggage claim areas.
From the airports website:
The gargoyles, roughly the size of a fifth-grade boy, are seated inside suitcases. Historically, gargoyles were placed on buildings to protect the site. These are placed slightly above the travelers’ heads to oversee and ensure that baggage will arrive safely at DIA.
Gargoyles, of course, orginated in the middle ages when stone statues called “grotesques” were placed on the exterior of Catholic cathedrals to channel water away from the roof, but also to ward off evil spirits. Since the Freemasons built many of the temples in Europe, the presence of gargoyles at the airport strengthens the theory for some that DIA is a cathedral or temple for the Masons and the New World Order. Others note that gargoyles are the symbols of the reptilian aliens, which are evil, shape-shifting creature that people like David Icke contend are running the show from the underground base beneath the airport.

Here are some good photos of the infamous murals at DIA. Snagged from Flicker. More below.

Is DIA built on top of ancient Native American graves?
Such rumors are certainly part of the airport’s folklore among DIA employees and frequent travelers. This is usually in reference to the pedestrian bridge arching between the main Jeppesen Terminal building and Concourse A. It is on these moving walkways that visitors will hear the sounds of Native American chants being played from speakers in a continuous loop. Officially the recordings are part of the extensive DIA art program and have been playing non-stop, 24-hours a day since the airport’s opening 14-years-ago.
As the story goes, the airport was constructed on top of burial grounds and spiritual sites used for centuries by the native tribes that populated the Front Range before the coming of the White Man. The perpetual playing of Native American songs in the 365-foot-long bridge was originally initiated by officials as a way to placate any angry spirits who might want to pull a Poltergeist or The Shining on one of the nation’s busiest airports. People in the conspiracy theory world think the burial ground may have connections to the Navajo writing in the floors at DIA and the dead Native American women seen in the Tanguma murals.
When asked, DIA spokespeople laugh-off the notion that the music has anything to do with angry spirits or that the land where the airport sits was a burial site for ancient tribes. Noting that little archeological evidence of Indian burial sites has ever been found around DIA, they surmise that the rumor had its origin in a ceremony that was performed around the time of DIA’s groundbreaking in the late-80’s by various Native American shaman to bless the new facility. Anything else is pure conjecture, they assert.
What they don’t mention is the secret ceremony conducted on the grounds of the airport in 1995.
Nicknamed “Blucifer” and “DIAblo,” The Mustang is a 32-foot-tall, neon blue sculpture of a raging steed that is currently located on a hill south of the airport along Pena Boulevard. It’s the first thing travelers see after the many miles of near empty prairie driving out to the airport, and the last thing new arrivals will witness before heading to the city.
El Mesteno is the latest piece of public art at the airport to explode into controversy, so this blog will have continuing posts on the beautifully frightening beast as time goes on. But here’s the quick and dirty back story:

Denver International Airport is so huge that it has the highest rate of wildlife hitting planes. The airport plans to spend nearly $350,000 on wildlife mitigation in the next year, reports the Denver Post.
Four full-time biologists will spend their days wandering around the 52 miles surrounding the airport, launching pyrotechnic shots at birds. Lethal methods are used to keep the runways clear. There are tons of rabbits and prairie dogs out there. Must be good eatings for the reptilian aliens down below.

Leo Tanguma is the man behind the two murals in the “Great Hall” terminal at DIA, “The Children of the World Dream of Peace” and “In Peace and Harmony with Nature.” Both the murals are split into two large panels, one set at 12ft x15ft, the other set at 12ft x 28ft, that span entire walls near the baggage claims, creating quite a jarring experience for traveler who don’t expect things like dead children and genocidal military men to be featured in a public airport.
Many of the conspiracy theorists who have posted about DIA have operated with the understanding that Tanguma is a Mayan (hence the 2012 connection) that did these murals were the only thing he painted before going underground. But people living in Denver, particularly in the west side Latino neighborhoods, are quite familiar with Tanguma’s other works. He was born and raised in a small town in Texas before establishing himself as a muralist in Dallas. After his warehouse studio was mysteriously burned down, he moved to Denver and began doing paintings here on churches and community recreation centers.
He earned the commission for the murals at DIA in the early 90s while the airport was being built and was helped by art students and people from the community. In 1996, he 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. It wasn’t until the early 2000’s, however,with the age of the Internet, that public speculation to the murals’ meaning really hit a feavered pitch. It’s hard to think of a work of contemporary art that has been more analysed and cited by the the various global conspiracy theory movements than the DIA murals. The 9-11 Truth thinkers, anti-mason folk, UFO hunters, 2012 followers, New Age spiritualists, ultra-conservative Christians, Chemtrail people, anarchists, anti-government ideologues, all see the DIA paintings as something of an oracle that must be interpreted to understand future events. Books, documentaries, radio programs and hundreds of Internet sites — all focused on these murals.
Why, then, have Tangumas other paintings largely been ignored by this world? The simple answer: they were never on the Internet. Until recently there was no way to contact Tanguma over the Internet, leading to the misconception that he had “been disappeared” or was some kind of recluse. Actually he was living in Arvada, Colorado, in a nice suburban home with his wife and grown daughter’s family. Late last year, Tanguma launched his own website with dozens of pictures of his full body of work. What will people make of these? Will they find secrets and hidden meaning in his other paintings? Check more of them out after the jump.
