Veterans War Memorial
(As Flyss suggested, the encryption key was an anagram of a phrase from conspiracy theory literature, “Trilateral Commission.” Glenn had previously anagrammed it to “Cast Iron Immortal Lies.” Remarkably, another anagram of the same term is “On Realistic Immortals,” which comes disturbingly close to the theme of this website.”)
The decrypted data consists almost entirely of multiple versions of the photograph inserted below.

We’re appealing to our readers for help. Does anyone recognize where this place is? — Stephen
I found two other photos of that mirrored room, showing different perspectives. Perhaps this will make it easier for someone to identify it. Again, remember that you can click on the images to enlarge them.
Notice the two reflections of the same wooden serving bar. These must be double reflections, involving a mirror outside the range of the photo, opposite the wall (and mirror) that we’re looking at.
This next one also shows the repeated mirroring effect well.
Using these two photos and the previous one, I’m trying to deduce the room’s actual shape and construction. However, I’m finding it a challenge, due to the repeating reflections.
It’s fully possible that this “hall of mirrors” may be an entirely secret space, unknown to anyone but those admitted. But if any of these photos ring a bell with anyone, please get in touch.
(It’s truly unfortunate that one can’t yet search Google images based on an image rather than a description!) — Stephen
I seem to be the least imaginative of all of us, but even I can’t help noticing the symbolism of “Hall of Mirrors.”
And, yes, I’m whistling in the dark. My GFs uncle has been missing for a week. He’s ill and on the road, and we’re getting nowhere finding him. –Strattera
With the help of an initially baffling comment by a reader, we’re now getting somewhere. More soon. — Stephen
In response to the second set of “hall of mirrors” photos taken off Glenn’s USB stick, a reader responded, “The UN charter.” This initially seemed to make no sense at all. However, it turns out to be the key to this entire matter.
As it happens, the original UN charter was signed in San Francisco, at a building called the Veterans War Memorial. In the basement of that building there’s a cocktail lounge/bar. Remarkably, there are no photos of it on Google images or Flikr. But its existence is no secret to San Francisco residents, who know it as the bar beneath Herbst Theater. We sent photos of the mirrored room to a contact in San Francisco, and he confirmed that these are one and the same place.
To repeat: the mirrored room is in the basement of the building where the UN charter was signed, currently the San Francisco War Memorial and Performing Arts Center.
(continued in my next post) — Stephen
Personally, I’ve never believed that the UN is part of any global Illuminati conspiracy. But it is Glenn’s beliefs that are relevant here, and, although Glenn has repudiated certain elements of traditional conspiracy analysis he nonetheless accepts a great proportion of that body of thought. It would no doubt be of interest to him that on the ground floor of the same building there’s a large mural of the UN Charter signing ceremony, and one of the people in that mural is Eleanor Roosevelt. It cannot be denied that the Roosevelts are widely considered by conspiracy theorists to have been Illuminati, or at least associated with them. Finally, it should be mentioned that the building itself looks remarkably like a grand Masonic Lodge.
One last point: As you may recall, Glenn had been working on a theory regarding a Japanese origin for one of the secret societies of Immortals. As it happens, the peace treaty between Japan and the US, the so called “San Francisco Treaty,” was signed right there in the very same building. That’s enough to give a bit of a shiver even to a crusty old skeptic like me. What it would do to Glenn I can only imagine. He could only have seen the San Francisco War Memorial building as an Illuminati focal point.
Keep in mind that Glenn is a man who almost never leaves home. Yet, he undoubtedly did so last week. That itself says volumes about the temptation he was under. (Continued in my next post)
GLENN: IF YOU’RE READING THIS (AND WE HOPE YOU ARE) PLEASE DO NOT GO NEAR THAT BUILDING!
To continue: It appears that Glenn may have been lured out by means of two temptations presented simultaneously
Flyss had alread suggested that someone deliberately deceived Glenn by posing as a disciple of the life extension authority Dr. Aubrey de Grey, and claiming to offer stem cell treatment for his diabetes. This in itself would have been a serious temptation for someone in Glenn’s position and state of health. Not only was he facing a real possibility of death from his perennially out-of-control condition, his blood sugar levels seem to have been sufficiently high at the moment so as to potentially cloud his judgment.
But there was a second temptation offered to him as well. It appears that he was provided with information about a previously unrecognized Illuminati focal point and possible link to Japan in the very same city where he hoped to receive life saving treatment.
For a person like Glenn, the possibility of entering further into the solution of the mystery that has entangled his mind for decades might serve as an even greater motivation than the desire to live. Whether that is or is not the case, the combination of the two possibilities could plausibly have proved a temptation too great for any person to resist.
GLENN: IF YOU’RE READING THIS (AND WE DESPERATELY HOPE YOU ARE) DO NOT GO NEAR THAT BUILDING. IT IS ALMOST CERTAINLY A TRAP.
One, he was chasing down a connection between the San Francisco Veteran’s War memorial, where the UN charter was signed, and the secret society of Immortals we call the blue&blacks. Two, someone in the San Francisco area is offering stem cell treatments for diseases like diabetes, an under-the-table, black market version of what honest scientist guys are aiming to get done in ten years or so.
Strattera and I are here in San Francisco, hiding in the crowds of the Gay Pride festival, and seeing what we can find. We’ve already found a lot. Strattera thinks in a big picture, military-history sort of way that I don’t, and she’ll be doing a lot of the posts. I’ll be the seeing eye. — Flyss
We’re here in San Francisco, following through on one of Glenn’s two investigations: the site where the UN Charter was signed, the Veterans War Memorial. As we’ve taken our photographs, I’ve been meditating on the history powers over time.
As you may know, I used to be in the military, before I was thrown out for violating certain norms. I have a certain knowledge of history, but mostly of military history. Flyss found some of my comments useful, and encouraged me to write in more depth than I usually would do. It wasn’t so hard, as I am passionate about this subject. And I feel that many people today seem to live in a world devoid of history, as if the world had just happened yesterday. The long perspective of time changes thing.
The UN is widely assumed by some to be a vehicle of the Illuminati, designed to establish a new world order. Maybe so. But the UN came out of the League of Nations, which came out of two centuries of European wars and the desire to stop nation states from slaughtering each other. Nation states came out of centuries of feudal struggle. Feudal powers come out of aristocracies that go back so far no one can trace them. So the UN is extremely new, historically speaking, right on the cusp. But I’ve been struck here how old and outdated the UN is compared to the new powers that are rising.
Still, it is newer than many. Right near the Veteran’s War Memorial (VMW) complex, there’s a statue of an ancient leader of a military civilization. Here’s the statuary base:
Ashurbanipal lived in the 7th century BCE. This warrior/scholar/king was a neo-Assyrian, meaning that even as long ago as that he led a new power. “Ancient” is relative. Yet, considering the placement of this statue, I wonder if he is one of the current leaders of the Immortal Illuminati. If this is the case, can see what Oxadrenals means when he says that the ancient immortals might tend to be hidbound in their thinking.
Returnin to the Veteran’s War Memorial. It’s built in a style that looks very old fashioned, right out of the Middle Ages. Here’s a view of part of its facade:
But this style is nothing like Medieval. It’s actually neo- neo- neo- neo-classic, with more neos than that, meaning it’s the most recent point of a chain of newness. Time sure telescopes out.
This is even more true of what’s inside the VWM, such as some type of secret shrine. (Continued in the next post.) –Strattera
Reflections on old powers and new powers, continued.
Inside the Veteran’s War Memorial in San Francisco, one of the two targets of Glenn’s investigations, there is this long corridor, like a line of fire:
Toward the end of the corridor, one comes to this locked and very heavy door:
We slipped a very thin remote camera under the door while the guide was distracted. This is what it picked up inside:
This is the signing of the UN charter, which took place in this very building. As Flyss pointed out, it gives one the shivers to imagine that ancient powers have reached forward to plant their hand on the nearly present day.
Outside, in the building proper, there is this artist’s rendition of the same event:
Notice who has been inserted into the scene in this rendering (or was she removed from the standard version?) Eleanor Roosevelt is pictured here at a moment of handoff of power. She is bright, intelligent, and larger than life compared to the grey men around her. Does she represent the older feudal aristocracy, in the form of “old money?” Or, at least, an older kind of power than the bureaucratic one to come?
From the statue of Ashurbanipal through an ancient shrine, through old moneyed aristocracy, to the United Nations.Time moves on and powers supercede one another. But what if there are Immortal powers who move through them all?
Excuse my attempt at eloquence. I should probably avoid it and stick to facts. But Flyss is egging me on.
[NOTE: In a comment to this post, a reader noted that a woman is in fact present in the photograph. He or she is correct, and I had missed her. But that woman is submissive in posture, and does not carry the force of Eleanor Roosevelt.]
To finish my thread on the Veteran’s Memorial. I promise that after this I will pull back from my big picture storytelling and return to old, calm, just-the-facts Strattera.
You may remember that we were first led to the memorial by photos of a mirrored room. That room was said to be in the basement of the Veterans War Memorial. We were able to confirm that, but it is now closed, locked, and unmarked. Rather than risk trying to look inside, we sought out an old friend, and obtained obtain photos of it from him. Here is one of them:
He told us that Winston Churchill, Franklin Roosevelt and Albert Einstein were among the faces pictured, and that he had no idea why they or any of the other photos were placed there. The room appears to have been locked up only about a month ago.
At the same time, statues began to disappear. This niche in the foyer used to have a statue of a man:
The room next to the one with the shrine was wide open and swept mostly clean. But lying on the ground there was this yellowing paper:
It is a little difficult to see in the photo, but the names of US states are engraved on this peculiar structure. And next to the yellowed image there was this symbol, printed on what looked like a postcard, of all things.
Flyss once wrote of the “great migration of the immortals.” Have they left San Francisco too? Have they left all the states, or most of them?
Where have they gone? — Straterra
Sorry this is posted so late. I’ve been living somewhat on adrenaline lately, seeing dangers at every turn. I may have been imagining dangers at every turn, in fact. It is difficult to say. Oxadrenals may be right, and we could be off their radar entirely. They haven’t troubled Kate, and she has continued to live right where she always has, keeping up her counseling practice.
Perhaps they are fully engaged in this “migration” we have talked about, transferring their center of activity to another location. Izumo? Santa Clara? Certainly, among the evidence you have found that of the Illuminati symbol in the mostly vacant room is the most definitive.
One wonder why they left it behind? A calling card? An insult thrown in the face of any mortals who might wish to know where they went?
After reading your historical collage I imagine them throwing up their hands at the difficulty of keeping up with us. I imagine them saying, “We thought we had it worked out with the United Nations. But already, in the blink of an eye since the UN’s founding, photographs have changed from black and white to color. There is television, the Internet, Google, cell phones, genetics, bioengineering. How can we keep up?” I imagine them pulling back, moving their whole operation to a fresh new hiding place. They must feel trapped by us, but what we mortals are doing in the world. As I said, it makes one feel proud. — Stephen
See the people sitting on the upper balconies? Those most have once been secret meeting rooms. But now they’re a gallery for a citywide party. This heavy old building, full of secrets, recently an operational quarters for a group of ancient immortals, has now been occupied. Occupied by what? By a social phenomenon that could never have occurred at any time in the history of the world until now: a legally sanctioned and wildly innocent gathering of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered people.
These contrasts vividly brought home to me just how hard it must be for immortals to adapt, to even function in the changing world that we force on them.
“What?” I can hear you saying. Not San Francisco. You must mean Santa Cruz.
Yeah, well, no. There’s a loose end in San Francisco I want to tie up first.
There are actually two loose ends here. One is the guy who appears four times in this photo. (Remember: Click on the photo to enlarge it. I can’t believe how often I have to say this.) I assume he’s a Hafeem as he’s obviously too old to be a True Immortal.
The other is the door at the end of the room. Having just stared in frustration at another door, it strikes me that I want to open this one find out what’s hidden behind it.
In this case, the door is safely hidden inside a building rather than right in the open like that other door. We can get practice sweeping for video cameras, picking locks, breaking and entering, all sorts of wholesome things.
Sound good to everyone? — Flyss
So when you’re planning to break into a locked door, you’re supposed to plan. Who knew?
As you may recall, Strattera and I have returned to San Francisco with our instructor Peter (“the Great”) to discover what, if anything, is hidden behind a certain locked door in the Veteran’s War Memorial.
Over the next couple of days, I’ll be posting a visual travelogue of our progress. — Flyss
Continued from my last post.
Here’s the Veteran’s War Memorial from the outside.
The UN Charter was signed in there, which, if you’re a conspiracy theorist, is an important fact. Currently, the building holds Herbst Theater, which a rather beautiful place. (Do Immortal conspirators like their furnishings fancy?)
The mirrored room is known to be beneath the theater, where it was once used as a cocktail bar. More recently, however, it has been locked and virtually forgotten. There’s not even a mention of it on the San Francisco Veterans War Memorial website.
We’ve discovered the door that leads down to it, but the door itself is off limits to the public. The security, however, is limited to a single, rather bored security guard who doesn’t even have any CCTV screens to help out. (We’re starting with an easy job. Not yet ready to rob the Louvre.)
Our instructor Peter rehearsed us in a dozen ways of getting down there. Some were quite violent, others benign but extremely technical. The method we actually employed was simple and direct. (continued in my next post) — Flyss
Continued from my last post.
The Veterans War Memorial is across from San Francisco City Hall.
Apparently, if you set off* a string of big firecrackers in a government building, the typical plain-vanilla security guard working the desk in a boring old Veterans Memorial across the street will run to look out the window just like you and I would. And he’ll keep looking too as the volleys of police cars drive up.
While he was so engaged,we took a quick stroll down this short corridor:
and enter here:
(The door was locked, but we’d spent half the day picking an identical lock that protects mops in the Herbst Theater bathroom, so it was easy.
Down a short flight of steps, and there you are: in the famous mirrored room!
It looks like a Prohibition-era cocktail lounge, doesn’t it? But the drawings on the wall include such people as Winston Churchill and Franklin Roosevelt, all famously claimed to be Illuminati. No wonder Glenn was interested in the place! But it seems to have been entirely abandoned by the immortal Illuminati.(Continued in my next post) — Flyss
*We used an expensive professional quality delayed detonator to set off some garden variety M-80 firecrackers. I imagine this may leave the FBI a little confused.
Continued from my last post.
In the mirrored room at last! Here’s another photo, facing the opposite way and showing the door in reflection. (You can just see my camera peeking out.)
And here’s a closeup of the door itself.
More photos here.
We were completely alone and undisturbed down there, hushed in the quiet beneath the empty auditorium. That was a good thing, because the lock on the door was tricky, especially since I wasn’t allowed to leave a single scratch. It took me nearly ten minutes.
And then we went in.
(Continued in my next post) — Flyss
As you may recall, when Flyss and I, accompanied by our instructor, broke into the hidden room inside the Veteran’s War Memorial, we found a video feed showing an area clearly not in San Francisco. We claimed on this blog that the feed had to be from somewhere in the Central Standard Time zone of the US, but that was a small piece of misdirection; in fact, direct evidence pointed to the Mountain Standard Time zone. Too much evidence, in fact. Without going into the details, whomever had left the feed running had intended us to find out where it was from.
They were not necessarily after us. Rather, the running video feed seems to have been a kind of remote booby-trap left behind by the society of immortals for anyone who might have been following clues that led to the hidden room. There was a tripwire set to signal entry. The Blue&Blacks could then move into position at the remote point, and ambush whomever was seeking them when they arrived there. (Presumably, they didn’t wish to simply kill their pursuers, as they could have done by setting a bomb in the hidden room, but rather interrogate them. Or, they might simply not wished to operate in downtown San Francisco. In either case, setting up an operation at a remote location of their choosing would have clear advantages.)
In a previous post, we showed the rather frightening looking human-sized box left open in that room, a box one that appeared to have been used for purposes of torture. Actually, it was most like placed there precisely to force our investigation of it. It could easily be anticipated the past occupants of that room that we would feel compelled to check the lock on the box’s door. Therefore, that lock was the perfect place for a tripwire. (It wasn’t easy to find, but we were looking for it, and found the signaling device.)
We next claimed on this site to be searching for, and then arriving at the imaged location. What we actually did, though was rather different. Before leaving the room, we attached a re-broadcast tap on the video feed.
Stephen will now pick up the thread, as much of this was his idea. — Strattera
