INTRODUCTION – PERCEPTIONS AND DECEPTIONS IN DCHistory is being rewritten. Like-minded people like ourselves, have seen and heard numerous examples of institutions like the Smithsonian hiding and losing archaeological finds. They also intimidate anyone that steps outside the conventional narrative. The entertainment fields are controlled by the same people who want us all to believe their version of history. If you wanted to take complete control, where else would one go to control information? THE LIBRARY. But more importantly, the Library of Congress.
LIBRARY OF CONGRESS
LIBRARY OF CONGRESS
Before we begin, I just want to show you how TPTB shape our perception of Washington DC and the capitol to make them seem as mundane as possible. I believe they do so to keep us uninterested in our history. I’ll use the US Capitol building to show you what I mean, as most of us are more familiar with it than the Library of Congress. Here is the normal view of the Exterior US Capitol Building we are all used to seeing:
And here is the building before the dome in 1846 and some views of the commanding west side we never see – a facade that is much more imposing than the east side.
Then there are the interior views we see all time:
Here is an interview with a senator in Statuary Hall in the background and then the full view. This room used to be the House of Representatives chamber. The third photo is the house chamber they use and we see today during the State of the Union Address.
A judiciary committee meeting room then and now.
And other rooms and art have are rarely seen that bear further investigation for what they might be trying to tell us.
You’ll see familiar themes Terra Incognita in the first photo, The fasces in second photo, the uncapped pyramid with the all sealing eye symbol over President Washington from the Congressional Chapel in the stained glass detail in the third pic.
Some we have all seen - Washington Laying the Cornerstone, which is actually a fresco in the Brumidi corridors. All over Capitol there are strange things going on with cornerstones, which are very important to Masons.
Of course Capitol cornerstone cannot be located even though they have searched with metal detectors. Here they are trying to find it in 1991.
Then we have the White House cornerstone search

And last but not least in cornerstone weirdness on Capitol Hill, the pedestal of this George Washington statue was used as the corner stone for the building of the capitol power plant. That fine looking power plant definitely needed a sweet marble cornerstone.
Then there are things that are common in most if not all of these buildings including bronze doors. Everyone knows Brancusi’s famous Gates of Paradise (shown first below) but have you ever seen these bronze doors from two buildings in the Library of Congress and the Capitol Building.
And yes those are gods on the doors on the Adams Building, one of two annexes of the Library of Congress. Here is a close up of one of the panels and some glass doors with gods from the same building. The Adams building will be covered in more detail in a series I am doing on the Capitol Hill buildings. It’s definitely got a lot of details we need to look into.
And a couple of owls, the first two at the John Adams Building and the rest are from Jefferson building of the Library of Congress
We all know the symbolism behind the owl and its connections to secret societies and of course this view of the capitol area
Most believe that a horned owl represents and is a companion to all sorts of Goddesses like Athena, Minerva, Isis, Ishtar, etc… It is also the symbol of Moloch. For our purposes I just want to point out that the Library of Congress Jefferson Building and the Supreme Court are the horns of the owl or maybe they crown the owl. Does this mean anything? Who knows but they sure like owls…
I am not going to go into all of the symbolism of L’ Enfant’s designs of Washington. For anyone interested in this topic, here are some search links for some videos. It is very fascinating but not pertinent to this discussion. YouTube list of Masonic Layout in Washington DC
Here are some other aerial views so you can get your bearings of the area.
Now that we have seen how they frame our view of something more familiar like the Capitol Building, let’s see how we are shown the Library of Congress. First of all, I didn’t realize that three buildings make up the Library of Congress in Washington DC. Most of you (and myself)are probably already picturing this building:
Nope that is the third and last building of the Library of Congress, the James Madison annex opened in 1980.
How about this one?
Not that one either, that is the John Adams annex, 1939
This is the original building of the Library of Congress, some may recognize it.
Of course this is way more magnificent than the other two buildings, but they are only showing you the front façade, not the dome or the rest of the building, which puts this building into category of style we have come to recognize as being reclaimed, rebuilt, or moved. BEAUX ARTS AGAIN!! Here is the exterior in all her glory.
It is almost like these three buildings were built in the reverse order and that this should be the correct order.
And a map of the buildings locations with tunnels. Yes, the tunnels under the White House are definitely just the beginning of all the tunnels in DC.
Again, as I showed above with the Capitol Building, even the few shots of the interior of the Library of Congress we see in popular culture are the same bland limited images. The only images I could find in film are from National Treasure 2… We also see librarian’s desk in the Main Reading Room a lot and usually the only view we see...
And some interior shots of the Jefferson Building.
They call this statue in the grand hall " female figure on newel post holding a torch of electric light"
Minerva right in the front entrance .
Minerva is featured prominently in the Great Hall. Back up and we see another familiar image.
Then there are these putti on the grand staircase in the Great Hall. This one shows Asia on the left and Europe on the right.
On the other side of the staircase, we have putti representing America on the left and Africa on the right.
Asia, Europe, and Africa seem to know where they are from and are able to point the location out on the globe, but the Putti representing America seems to still be looking for America even though it is right there. Again, little clues all over the Library.
The architecture, art, and the buildings history will be looked at into a series of posts as there is a lot to cover. If anyone remembers the scene in Candleshoe, an old Disney movie, Jody Foster is looking for a clue to find treasure in the library, she assumes it is in one of the hundreds of books in the library. She falls asleep looking through all the books for the clue to the treasure. In the morning, when the sun came up and woke her, she saw the clue was actually in the stained glass window the sun was shining through to show the clue on the wall.
Maybe sometimes the best clues are in the art of the library itself...
