Just one more day until President Barack Obama comes to town, and the conspiracy theories are really taking off. Denver International Airport managed to survive Operation Mountain Guardian (OMG!), the Homeland Security exercise that included DIA as one of its locations on Friday. But will it survive the onslaught of DIA conspiracy theorists?
Officially, Obama, who's on a three-state Western swing, is coming to Colorado for a fundraiser, and also a public appearance at Denver's Lincoln High School on Tuesday afternoon.
But rumors persist that the President is really coming here in order to take shelter from the destructive Comet Elenin in one of those underground bunkers below DIA -- you know, the ones that are also supposed to be concentration camps after the New World Order takes over. Or the Martians.
Notes one theorist on disclosetv:
Denver was built for a reason, and not for the sake of Denver needing a new airport miles from anywhere, its a good strategic location... and as we know government's know stuff way in advance, times like this it reminds me of Regan speech about outside threats... and the seed bank and the increase in underground bases and the things i have seen planning wise for a event, so it will be interesting to see who will also be in Denver mid September.
The phones were ringing off the hook at DIA on Friday, reports the press office there, and the web is rife with speculation. Wonder if you can get Internet access in that bunker?
Here's a video that'll give you a flavor of what all the buzz is about:
