2. Lets take Philip Anshutz for example... the man from the article, mr Illuminati...
It's amazingly clear that he has a direction and focus behind everything he does:
Financed the 2010 pro-charter school film, Waiting for Superman.
Contributed $70,000 in 2003 to the Discovery Institute, to specifically support the work of telecom guru George Gilder but not matters related to intelligent design. That fact was validated by Discovery President Bruce Chapman in a letter-to-the-editor to the Rocky Mounatain News, "Anschutz never gave that program a nickel,"
The Discovery Institute is a think tank based in Seattle, Washington that also promotes intelligent design and criticizes evolution.
Philip Anschutz and his wife Nancy have contributed over $100,000,000 to the new medical, dental, nursing, and pharmacy campus of the University of Colorado School of Medicine in Aurora, Colorado, which is now named the Anschutz Medical Campus in their honor. The land came from the recently-closed Fitzsimons Army Medical Center, but millions and millions were needed for the construction of new medical laboratory buildings and a new University Hospital on the land.
Since at least the 18th century Freemasonry has incorporated Templar symbols and rituals in a number of Masonic bodies, most notably, the "Order of the Temple" the final order joined in "The United Religious, Military and Masonic Orders of the Temple and of St John of Jerusalem, Palestine, Rhodes and Malta" commonly known as the Knights Templar. One theory of the origins of Freemasonry claims direct descent from the historical Knights Templar through its final fourteenth-century members who took refuge in Scotland, or other countries where the Templar suppression was not enforced. This theory is usually deprecated on grounds of lack of evidence, by both Masonic authorities and historians.
The Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and of the Temple of Solomon, commonly known as the Knights Templar, the Order of the Temple or simply as Templars, were among the most famous of the Roman Catholic Church military orders. Founded during the High Middle Ages after the First Crusade to help protect Christian pilgrims, the organization lasted for nearly two centuries.
Officially endorsed by Roman Catholic Church around 1129, the Order became a favored charity throughout Christendom, and grew rapidly in membership and power. Templar knights, in their distinctive white mantles with a red cross, were among the most skilled fighting units of the Crusades. Non-combatant members of the Order managed a large economic infrastructure throughout Christendom, innovating financial techniques that were an early form of banking, and building fortifications across Europe and the Holy Land.
The Templars' existence was tied closely to the Crusades; when the Holy Land was lost, support for the Order faded. Rumors about the Templars' secret initiation ceremony created mistrust, and King Philip IV of France (Philippe le Bel), deeply in debt to the Order, took advantage of the situation. In 1307, many of the Order's members in France were charges of heresy, arrested, tortured into giving false confessions, and then burned at the stake. Under pressure from King Philip, Pope Clement V disbanded the Order in 1312. The abrupt disappearance of a major part of the European infrastructure gave rise to speculation and legends, which have kept the "Templar" name alive into the modern day. Only recently did we learn that in 1314 the Order had secretly been pardoned by Pope Clement V.
The kigdom of Portugal as we will see, became of singular importance to the Templars. It is not without significance that King Afonso I of Portugal, the First King of Portugal (1139–1185) was a Templar Brother (13.03.1129). Portugal's existence is in large part due to the Crusaders involvement in the Reconquista, but especially the Templars. Something that was recognized by the crown in its actions in behalf of the Order in its time of need. Portugal also adopted some Templar symbols. All the Portuguese caravels, used in their voyages of exploration were adorned in their sails with the cross of the Order. Even today the Order of Christ is rememberer as a merit reward awarded by the Portuguese government.

I don't know why they would want to create an aura of lunacy around it but I highly doubt there's any illuminati link in there.

Hey great post, appreciate your time and efforts! I think it's important for us to keep a light on these questions, b/c they aren't going away, as much as the naysayers wish they would! You posted a link to a Carli Richards' account of the night.
Originally posted by Mythology
Here is a victim by the name of Carli Richards, her story is equally unbelievable along with her wounds. If you follow the link to her gun shot wounds, they seem more like scratches, then anything. Just throwing it out there. I like to explore all angles.
A lot of the victims I’ve researched so far just don’t seem to fit along with the official story/timeline. If anyone has any further evidence in this regard please do come forward. Judging from youtube/forum feedback many people feel a lot of the witnesses were “coached” and show obvious signs.
I went ahead and followed that rabbit hole down. Imagine this: There's some things that don't sit right in the accounts! Either it's a plant story, or this couple is scamming for money/fame.
First off, there are three links I followed, the one you provided, which supplied me with her boyfriend's account of the event sinisterdreams.wordpress.com... , which linked directly to Carli's MODELLING page (Partially NSFW!) www.carlirotten.net... which is accepting donations to offset her medical bills and therapy costs.
Issue #1: What is the timeline regarding which guns were used when? I was under the assumption that the AR was used first and then discarded due to jamming, with the shooter switching to the shotgun. The reason I ask is that according to both of their accounts the first teargas canister landed literally at their feet and they bolted up and headed for the exit ramp. According to the boyfriend:
I thought maybe this guy was throwing some promotional prizes at us, and we just happened to be lucky enough to have whatever it was land at our feet. Then it started hissing, and I saw smoke coming out of it. A second later, my nostrils were overwhelmed by what I immediately recognized as tear gas. That was the instant that it became real, and it became real to Carli about a split second before me, because she was up and outta that seat in a heartbeat. She stood up and started to run out, and believe me I was right behind her. Her reacting a hair of a second before me is what got her shot, but it’s also what saved our lives.
If you followed that original link (as well as the bf's link) she was clearly shot with buckshot...she even states that in her account. So if the AR was purportedly the first weapon used, she'd be dead, right? They were one of the first people out of the theater as well, as noted by the b/f:
So, Carli gets up and essentially shields me from getting shot, and we start running. My nose is starting to run and my eyes are starting to burn from the teargas, but I know we’ve got to get out of there and quick. Fortunately, the downward sloping wall started only a couple rows down from us, and luckily we were sitting on the farthest outside seats. I kept my head low as we made it around the corner of the wall in about two seconds. Then we began racing down the dimly lit hallway
Issue #2: Timing is everything
I know this is a relatively minor thing, but significant all the same. Have you ever been to a midnight showing of a popular "comics" movie? Of course you have, you're on ATS Here, the b/f's account of the pre-movie events makes no sense to anyone that has actually made it into a midnight movie. I'll abbreviate for the sake of your time:
-At 11:15 they decided to 'get geared up' in their batman t-shirts & whatnot and leave the house.
-Make a detailed pitstop at a gas station for an itemized list of junk food.
-Drive 4 miles in crosstown traffic, including some self-admitted navigational errors.
-Park in the 'boondocks' section of the lot. Walk in and get in line for the FANDANGO machine.
(Narrative magically omits getting into the assumedly long entrance line, and jumps to seating)
-Find 2 adjoining seats that, by opening night standards, are prime real estate. (and provide a near-perfect escape route)
-AND ALL THIS FOR A [wait for it] 12:05 SHOWING!
Issue #3: Another Actor?
As linked from the b/f's blog, carli's website is accepting donations. Her website? On it, carlirotten.net, it definitely spells out that she's an actress (along with any other profession that will make her some money or fame involving a camera). ANd BTW, I carefully checked the tattoos in the 'buckshot' photo with all the modelling shots. Definitely the same person.
So now we have 2 witnesses that are semi-professional actors? What are the odds?

So you're saying that because they're aspiring actors, they're obviously lying? Or not telling the exact truth? That's a bit weak. I'm not saying you're wrong, I'm saying maybe you should provide a little bit more evidence for the "deception" you seem to be implying has taken place here.edit on 10-9-2012 by AfterInfinity because: (no reason given)
