This Audacity of Theirs Is Not New

                
"To plunder, to slaughter, to steal, these things they misname empire; and where they make a wasteland, they call it peace."

-Tacitus


Ames Monument, Laramie, Wyoming
           
Pictured above is the Ames Monument.  It is a pyramid, built on the highest point of the Union Pacific's Trans-Continental Railroad.  It is located about 20 miles east of Laramie, Wyoming at elevation 8,247 feet above sea level.  The pyramid was built by Henry Hobson Richardson while Augustus Saint-Gaudens designed the two 9 ft. relief portraits on the east and west sides respectively.  The faces are those of the Ames brothers, Oakes and Oliver.  One brother was a politician in Washington, the other a president of the Union Pacific Railroad. 
 
America has a lengthy history of being associated with enormous economic frauds and with Freemasonry and/or Satanic symbols. It should be no surprise to see another ominously evil-looking pyramid monument in honor of two ruthless men who were main contributors in building the Trans-continental railroad.  Oakes and Oliver stole money from the American people, endorsed the ethnic cleansing of the Plains Indians, and helped expedite the buffalo slaughter by splitting the herd of over 90 million buffalo, into two parts-  a northern half and a southern half with their Trans-Continental Railroad.

The pyramid has long been associated with Freemasonry and SatanismThe triangle also represents the trinity, which is another way of saying that humans are divine and do not need God.

 "Form follows function."

-Louis Sullivan

Very much like today when the U.S. Government goes off half-cocked with grandiose construction projects financed by money created out of thin air, the Government of the mid-19th Century was met with strong opposition.  As is usually the case today, these detractors were denounced as short-sighted cynics, or in today's terminology, "conspiracy theorists."  
    
Naysayers said the Trans-Continental Railroad would be impossible for a number of reasons.  The number one reason was the enormous cost.  However, the Ames brothers and the men of Credit Mobilier and Union Pacific put that worry to rest.  Pessimists said it would be impossible to build the track through the Great Plains, as it was Indian country and safety could not be guaranteed.  American war generals simply moved from butchering in the Civil War to the ethnic genocide of the Western Native Americans.  Others critical of the project claimed it was simply a scam created by rich men looking to make themselves and their buddies richer.      

Oakes Ames
Why would such a monument remain?  Why wouldn't it be torn down- a monument to men who designed an enormous scam?

After all, Oakes was convicted as part of the Credit Mobilier scandal.  The greed that satiated the robber barons of the Nineteenth Century still invades the hearts of men today.  The Ames Monument is a monument of depravity.  It is a symbol of the Evil Powers' willingness and ability to destroy; regardless of how it looks, if its justified, or in the best interests of the people.   

"Throughout the remainder of the nineteenth century (and beyond), corporate interests-  apparently insatiable-  returned again to demand direct and indirect federal subsidies.  To insure preferential treatment and noninterference, national legislative and executive offices were corrupted and representative government made a mockery...the corruption of the Grant era was sparked by... the activities of those two companies and individuals connected to Pacific railway scheme." 

-Leonard Curry 

The Ames Monument still stands today, a striking image on Wyoming's high plains, a symbol of an ancient, ruthless religion of power and greed.  Though the original rail tracks have been moved multiple times from the area of the monument, the pyramid monument still stands.  The rail town of Sherman, which grew up 100 yards from the pyramid, is now a ghost town with no buildings standing, but yet, the triangle remains.
