Where do I begin? I guess for space-saving, I’ll begin with the cards. The NWO cards were released in 1995 by Steve Jackson Games, an Austin
company which in 1990 was RAIDED by the U.S. Secret Service (due to another one of their games) and was the subject of a court case in 1994-see
I stumbled upon the story of the NWO Trading Cards back in 2005, in a thread online about 9-11, and had read a little here and there about them, but
never really went too in-depth with it. I remember them always giving me an uneasy feeling though. I showed them to a few friends who had the exact
response, so initially I had wanted to purchase the set to see what they were all about. From my point of view, they were something to keep my eyes
on, but nothing else.
Fast forward to a few days ago, and I see THIS thread: www.abovetopsecret.com...
It gets me to thinking about the other cards, and what they might show. So after many hours of searching, and crossing my list off one by one, I have
found the (almost) COMPLETE (I’m missing 3 or 4) card set. I present it to you here along with my thoughts.
Before I go further, let me be clear: I do not want to sway anyone’s opinion about the cards, in fact, I want to try and get other ideas or
theories on the cards. All I can do is give MY opinions and present facts, gathered with a few hours worth of research. So I’ll begin with the
first of many strange cards:
Albino Alligator is a 1996 film directed by Kevin Spacey in his directorial debut. It stars Matt Dillon, Gary Sinise and William Fichtner as three
small-time criminals who take hostages when they are cornered by the police. The title of the film refers to the way that alligators will use an
albino among them as a sacrifice, in order to secure their real prey.
The AL GORE card. This one was funny, depicting him as a harmless tree-hugger but also maybe saying “He’s ok, he’s one of us”. Again, maybe
nothing.. maybe something..
I really don’t know what to think about this card. It is very strange, it looks like something I’ve SEEN before, if that makes sense..
The recently infamous “backlash” card. This one’s just plain weird, on too many levels to go into. Look at the title of the article below.. Try
not to get chills.
In alphabetical order, two cards down, is the above bank merger card. Below is a recent article on the ongoing RECENT mergers. Remember, this guy
released the cards in 1995.
Another strange one. Big business represented by nuclear power plants? Don’t know about that one. Oh yeah by the way, it gets WEIRDER.
Bill Clinton has a collar around him, giving what looks like a THUMBS UP, maybe saying “I’m with you,it’s all OK”. This was years before the
Lewinski scandal, by the way.
