One of the most popular posts I’ve done in the short life of this blog was "Strange But True," about "itanimulli." WordPress has a feature on its stats page that shows me the search terms that people use to find me and "itanimulli" is one of the biggies ("Obama Nazi" is another).
Itanimulli, of course, is "Illuminati" spelled backwards. Type itanimulli.com into your browser and the National Security Agency’s website pops up, proof positive, in some people’s minds, that the US government is a bought-and-paid-for subsidiary of the New World Order.
Other people took the next step and investigated. They swiftly discovered that a computer geek named John Fenley, who lives in Provo, Utah, purchased the domain name "Itanimulli" and is redirecting visitors to the NSA. He also owns many other domain names, including (as of May 19, 2004):
One intrepid researcher (definitely an NWO believer–his blog is named
12160.org, after the shortwave frequency that Alex Jones’s radio show
is broadcast on) contacted Fenley by e mail and received a cordial
reply. Here’s an excerpt from the string:

Dear Mr. Fenley,
I have recently been alerted to the fact that you own the Domain Name: ITANIMULLI.COM.
The website redirects to the NSA website . Many of us are wondering why
that is ? Are you an employee of the NSA or DARPA ? Did you know your
website spells Illuminati backwards? Are you familiar with the
Illuminati and Its New World Order Plan ? If so are you pro or con ?
I really would appreciate it if you took some time to answer these
questions and put our enquiring minds to rest. Thank you for your time.

I decided to forward the domain Itanimulli.com domain to the NSA as a
joke… kind of like a rickroll + shock site. I registered the website
years ago precisely because it does spell Illuminati backwards, but
didn’t really do anything with it for a long time. When I had the idea
to forward the domain to the NSA I couldn’t pass it up, and couldn’t
I don’t believe that the Illuminati actually exists, and only one
black helicopter has ever buzzed my house (that’s a whole other story).
I’m not sure what the New World Order Plan is, but if you have more
information, I’ll gladly tell you what I think of it.
I am not an employee of the NSA or DARPA, though I have participated
in several DARPA contests including the 2 Grand Challenges, the Urban
Challenge and the recent Network Challenge.
Thanks for your interest,
“But he still could be an employee of the US government” one poster
on a conspiracist site protested (begging the question as to why, if the
NSA was a secret asset of the ultra-secret Illuminati, it would
advertise itself so blatantly).
But then again, why wouldn’t it? If you read Conspiracist literature,
Washington DC is a great big hieroglyphic, its street grids and
monuments reflecting the Masonic symbols and idols that our covert
rulers secretly worship. If the Masonic Zionists that run the NWO really
are the Kabbalists, Occultists, and Satanists that conspiracist
literature claims they are they’d have to expose themselves in just that
way, since numbers and cryptograms and the like are what they use to
channel their supernatural powers.
