George Noory welcomed investigative mythologist William Henry, who discussed his latest research into the esoteric symbolism of the U.S. Capitol and what it reveals about the intentions of the founding fathers. Describing the insights he has gained from his investigation, Henry said, "when you start to look into this and you peel back the layers of the symbolism of the Capitol, you're like 'wait a minute, what is going on here?'"
According to him, the symbolism found in the Capitol Building suggests that it is both the center of our federal government and an esoteric temple (see images). While such a concept may sound arcane to some, Henry pointed out that throughout history the building has been referred to as a "temple" by prominent statesmen, dating back to when it was first being built all the way up to contemporary times. He also listed a litany of features which "unquestionably identify it as a temple," including "stone construction, an underground entrance, chapels ... closed doors, private members, and an orientation to the sun."
Based on his research, Henry surmised that the ultimate purpose of the Capitol as a temple is to deify George Washington. He presented many clues which led him to this conclusion, most notably the striking similarities between a fresco of Washington on the ceiling of the Capitol dome and traditional depictions of Jesus. "The message is crystal clear," he said, "George Washington is the American Christ ... and this is his temple." Rather than ascribe sinister connotations to this deification of Washington, Henry saw it more as a celebration of the transformation of man into God, which he believes is attainable by everyone. Later in the evening, Henry talked about 2012 as well as his research into star gates.
Behind Pearl Harbor
Appearing during the first hour, researcher Douglas Dietrich talked about the December 7, 1941 attacks on Pearl Harbor. He explained that Japan's motivation for the attack on America was rooted in financial machinations by the United States and its allies which crippled the Japanese economy. When asked if the US knew, in advance, of an impending Japanese attacks, Dietrich said that "it was all too obvious to the United States" and cited a number of facts which suggests that is the case.
