All credit to @knowthyself for the info:
Some of you might remember this 4chan thread suggesting people check out a tunnel in DC to find an underground tunnel at Comet Ping Pong

It caught my attention because I had done research on tunnels already regarding Oliver Miller, owner of Dr. Pong. I retraced my steps and found this document which links both James Alefantis and Oliver Miller to the Dupont Underground, which is the tunnel in question.

I posted this information on voat, but decided to also post it on 4chan which lead to these threads. I am the op in the first two, but not the third, if you want to follow my train of research. #1(http://boards.4chan.org/pol/thread/100550239#p100558360)))) #2(http://boards.4chan.org/pol/thread/100566559#p100566559)))) #3(http://boards.4chan.org/pol/thread/100578436#p100578436))))

I have made quite a few more connections now, with the help of some users here, reddit, and 4chan, which I will try to summarize as best as possible. No one likes a wall of text.

Connection to Soros: In order to do research for the Dupont Underground, Provisions Library sent James Huckenpahler along with 3 other artists to Germany to find inspiration. Provisions Library is funded by Open Society Foundations, which is owned by George Soros. Also interesting is that Huckenpahler must have stayed with Oliver Miller while he was in Berlin because he is given a special thanks for his hospitality in the Metamonument document. The trip to Berlin started in June 2012, and if you remember the "secret plans..." picture from CCP's tumblr was taken in July 2012, so it is likely that they were together when that pic was taken.

Connections to Amanda Kleinman: Thanks to a user here on voat, I found out that Huckenpahler has a soundcloud account where he got friends to read chapters from his Metamonument document.SoundCloud One of the readers is none other than Amanda Kleinman, keyboardist for Heavy Breathing and best known for her standup at CPP where she jokes about pedophilia and killing babies. Another connection is that Kleinman and Huckenpahler both worked on a project that was displayed at the Curator's Office, where Marina Abromovic's art has been displayed This one is a little tricky. In the google search results you can see both Huckenpahler and Kleinman are listed, but when you click the link you get a 'page not found' error. If you click on the 'artists' tab you will see Marina Abromovic's name listed. If this is not enough to convince you, see this link and this link. Huckenpahler was also a faculty member at Corcoran School of Art, where Kleinman is a graduate and legacy adviser.

There is a lot more information on these people that I have not included to try to keep this simple. I would suggest looking through the 4chan threads, although the discussion gets quite off-topic. This is not a smoking gun, I know, all I have done here is give some validation to the 4chan poster who suggested we check out that tunnel. I have managed to show that Oliver Miller, James Alefantis, and James Huckenpahler have direct connections to that tunnel. I have shown that Amanda Kleinman and Marina Abromovic have direct connections to Huckenpahler, and we already know their connections to Alefantis and CPP. I have also shown that the idea for that tunnel's renovation is funded in part by George Soros.

Things to look into:

Dupont Underground - This is the 501c3 working on the renovation. Their board of directors could be interesting to look at. I also found out that the original managing director left this year and is being replaced by someone else.. Who knows if that is useful or not.

The other artists who went with Huckenpahler to Berlin might also be interesting to look into. Their names are Paul M Farber, Edgar Endress, and Pam Jordan.

Please note that I AM NOT asking anyone to pester any of these people in real life or do anything illegal to get their information. I have no reason to believe that they are involved in anything wrong. I'm simply saying it might be interesting to look through public info and find connections.

Last note: Someone suggested that I not embed links into the text as it makes it hard to copy/paste. I understand his point, but I think the advantage of making it easier to read is worth it. If you want to copy/paste just right click a link and select "copy link address"
