(Reuters) - The billionaire co-founder of Carlyle Group private equity company is donating $7.5 million to restore the Washington Monument, which has been closed since it was damaged by an earthquake in August.

Actually, the repairs are expected to cost $15 million, Congress allocated $7.5 million, with the other $7.5 million to come from private donors, so you are not totally off the hook for the bill.
Also, I never said this had to be a conspiracy. I simply suggest that given he is a co-founder of the Carlyle Group, it's ties to G.H.W. Bush, and speculation surrounding masonic and illuminati ties, I think it is interesting that he decided to put down $7.5 million to repair the monument, which was built by masons and has many features which could be described as occult symbolism.
I suggest keeping an open mind regarding the possibilities, that is all.

SYMBOLIC IMPORTANCE Interestingly, this earthquake also cracked the pyramidion on top of the Washington Monument. Symbolically, this represented the "cracking of the eye" of the Illuminati -- indicating their ever-increasingly-imminent downfall.
