Congressmen Shooting Will Set Off Tons of Conspiracy Theories

When a gunman opened fire on an early morning Republican ball practice session today, we at Common Sense Conspiracy knew we’d be hearing about it real soon. Fortunately for all involved, it turns out that the gunman may not have actually claimed a life. While Steve Scalise was shot, he is stable, according to reports. Another staffer was also shot, but reports indicate that no one is in critical condition. That’s pretty amazing for a high-powered rifle-wielding man who unloaded apparently 30 rounds or more. So, we knew the conspiracy theories about this one would be all over the place, and so far, we are right.
While not much is known about the gunman at this point, there is going to be those that say this is politically motivated. What we do know is that the gunman is not someone of Middle Eastern descent, which is why you aren’t hearing the big T-word being thrown around. Assuming this guy turns out to be a Democrat, there are going to be those that say this is a political hate crime, if you can stomach that explanation. Chances are, that is exactly what it is. This fellow figured out that a lot of Republican Congress members would be gathered here with relatively little security and basically be sitting ducks if someone had the mind. However, while that explanation may be the most likely, that is not where it will stop.
Other explanations are inevitable. Some may say that it was an inside job. They will point to the fact that no one was killed as evidence. They will say that this was done by Republicans to try to take the heat off of all the things that are currently going on (i.e. the Russia investigation or Trump’s daily dose of chaos in and around the White House). They also might chalk this up as an NRA-led attempt to show that good guys with guns do win the day. Some reports say that the only reason this wasn’t a massacre is because someone there was armed and almost immediately fired back.
The real explanation is going to be hard for anyone to ascertain. If this is some sort of false flag operation from one side or the other, evidence will be scarce, and it’s always convenient when the shooter is killed in the aftermath because there will be no trial, interrogations, or eventual testimony. The powers-that-be can make this whatever they want it to be with the media, and that’s what they will do. That’s why it is good for us to speculate and examine this from other angles.
Stay tuned to Common Sense Conspiracy. We will continue to analyze this as new theories develop and more information is available.

Terrorism Now Being Used as Excuse to Regulate the Internet

Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May is publicly calling for social media giants like Facebook and Twitter to become hostile places for terrorists looking to communicate or recruit. Now, we all can probably agree that this is a good idea, and we certainly hope that none of our readers would feel otherwise. However, it is our duty at Common Sense Conspiracy to point out where this could lead in the future.
Grabbing control over the Internet has been a problem for world governments for now decades. While we may never know exactly what happened behind the scenes, somehow the Internet took off and became what it is today without governments all over the world realizing it in time to put the clamps down on it. This kind of unchecked freedom keeps them up at night, and there have been many legislative attempts over the years to find a way to exert more control over it. Social media blowing up like it has only upped the ante.
So, while we are not necessarily implying that May and others are using terrorist acts as a means for pushing for more Internet control, we are saying that the possibility for that exists. Whether that is the goal behind the scenes right now, you can rest assured they wouldn’t mind if gaining more control of the Internet and social media was some sort of collateral damage in fighting the spread of extremism. This is another example of what is often referred to by conspiracy theorists as the “slippery slope.” What starts out as one thing, and even a good thing at that, turns into something else entirely with time. Stay tuned as we continue to analyze this and future situations.

Climate Change, Terror Attacks, and a Perpetual State of Fear

In little more than a week’s time, we have seen multiple events that have made a lot of eyebrows rise worldwide in conspiracy circles. For veterans to this scene, this explanation is probably not necessary (although you might still find it interesting or want to pile on if you have any more information that you think is helpful). However, the political climate among other things has a lot of people on edge, and that means that more people than ever before are turning to alternative news sources and opinions. This is an overwhelmingly great thing, and we are proud to have all newcomers. This is a primer for those that might wonder why so many people think what they think when things like this happen in our world.
It is drilled into our minds from almost infancy that our government and civic system is designed to keep us safe. Safety is one of the cornerstones of true control, and the government (all over the world) takes it very seriously. However, what if you are safe already? What if there isn’t a threat? Well, that doesn’t work out well for them, and that’s why it will never happen. So, many in conspiracy circles believe that if things are going okay in the world, the powers-that-be will work overtime to make sure that it doesn’t stay that way. That is where all of the drama about false flag operations and such originates.
Situations like the terror attacks in Britain are a great example. Are they false flag operations? Who knows? We at Common Sense Conspiracy certainly have no real evidence to present for or against. But the reason it gets tossed around is because these sorts of things are just bad enough to cause mass panic and hysteria, but not bad enough to encourage people to revolt. In other words, they want us to feel just unsafe enough that we believe the government is taking care of us. Does that mean that every major violent event in the world is a false flag operation? Absolutely not, and the CSC has repeatedly gone on the record questioning the validity of claims. As always, we like to see some evidence, preferably tangible, before we start putting theories forward. Too many people out there (we’re not saying any names) in our line of work don’t follow this rule, and they lead to the rest of us getting labelled as tin-foil hat wearers and conspiracy nuts. The reality is that there are false flag operations, and we know this. Deciphering real ones from unfounded speculation is a big part of what we do here.
Climate change is another topic that was big in the news this past week. President Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris accords was a major news story and led to a lot of doomsday predictions. Now, we’re not here to give you a full scientific rundown or climate change and the evidence for or against. All we are saying is that it’s like a game. Is climate change real? Sure. Look around. Is it caused by man? Sure, probably doesn’t help anything. But is Florida going to be underwater in 2030? Now that’s getting a little crazy with it. Is the United States going to be consumed by a fireball as temperatures spiral out of control? The doomsday prophecies of climate change are ironic because of this. Almost every ardent supporter of climate change is probably vehemently against Donald Trump. Yet, they use his style of negotiation. Shoot high and hope to get something in the middle. They preach doomsday hoping that maybe they will get people to change somewhere down the line. This is probably a pretty obvious strategy to most reasonable people. However, what you may not have considered is that they also want you to be afraid. Too much gets made out of the politics of it. The Democrats want you to be afraid that the Republicans will cause your Earth to be destroyed and all your grandchildren’s children to perish. The Republicans want you to believe that the Democrats are wasting your money on a bunch of bologna. The reality is that both sides like it. Or a better description would be that the real government likes it. Once again, it promotes fear. It also promotes division. Those two things are critical aspects at keeping people (where the real power lies) in check.
So, we hope as you peruse our articles here at Common Sense Conspiracy both today and in the future, you will remember this one that kind of gives you a primer for what you will see here. No matter how one-sided a lot of things might look at first glance, a lot of times if you look closer, you’ll see that all sides benefit, not just one or the other. That’s what we call the machine at work, and believe you me, it has been working overtime in our world this past week.

Many Conspiracy Theorists Believe London Bridge Attack is a Hoax — False Flag?

London has suffered yet another terror attack. This attack involved a van careening into people on the London Bridge. It is already being labelled a false flag event in some conspiracy circles. We have no reason at this time to concur with that account of things.

A false flag event has to have a point. With the information we have right now, we can see no advantage the government of either Britain or a shadowy New World Order would gain from this attack. Yes, it keeps people on edge, but as terror attacks go, this and the Manchester attack are very terrible events, without a doubt, but small on the scale of these things. We’re not saying that it doesn’t matter or that this sort of speculation is not pertinent and worthwhile; we are only saying that to declare this a false flag operation by the British government, we would need a goal, an objective that this helps to fulfill. At this time, we at Common Sense Conspiracy have not seen any evidence of this. However, there are those that disagree with us. The video below shows one such YouTubers who most certainly thinks he has this nailed down. Perhaps with more information we will see where he is coming from, but we aren’t ready to make such a declaration at this time.

Why the Russia Probe Further Proves That America Has a One-Party System

The current controversy regarding the possibility that now President Donald Trump “colluded” with Russia to win the election is a centerpiece in every news broadcast in America and has been for months. Despite a continuing lack of actual evidence, it has been beat into everyone’s brain by the mainstream media, and you can bet that millions of Americans have taken it as fact without really looking into what happened. See, in most investigations in the world, there is a crime and then investigators investigate to try to find out the who, what, when, where, and how of the commission of said crime. In this case, we are working in reverse. Investigators are investigating with no knowledge that a crime has actually been committed. But that is neither here nor there as they say. Regardless of how you feel about the possibility that Trump colluded with Russia, there is some information below the surface here, especially for those of us in conspiracy circles, that really tells an interesting story.
First of all, let’s address the part that the mainstream media never mentions. When they talk about the investigation into whether Trump colluded with Russia, they never reveal anything about the nuts and bolts of it. It’s just left out there with no explanation. The average American walking the street hears that and assumes something a lot more sinister than what they are saying happened. People envision meetings between Trump associates and the Kremlin and hackers up at all hours of the morning on Election Day, making sure that Hillary votes are not counted or are counted for Trump. Maybe a briefcase with stacks of crisp bills in it. You know, really Hollywood this thing up.
Reality is much different. Right or wrong, no matter how you feel about it, the collusion that they are talking about was using WikiLeaks to reveal to the American public that the DNC had rigged their election. Bernie Sanders was never a factor. Hillary Clinton knew from the outset that she would win. It had been promised to her, and the DNC wasn’t about to let another independent (Bernie’s story is awfully similar to Trump’s, if you think about it) storm on to the 2016 election scene and take over their party. All the people that gave money to Sanders’ campaign were the victims of fraud perpetrated by the Democratic Party. And while we may never know for sure if Hillary herself was involved in it, she was the benefactor of it. And if not for another unlikely outsider storming on the scene, she would be the President of the United States now. Revealing this to the American people, regardless of who did it, was a service. Whether Clinton going on to lose the election is better or worse for the world and America is something we will not know. But to learn that conspiracy theorists aren’t that crazy after all, and the primary really was rigged (and not by Russians or Donald Trump, but by the party itself) is a very important revelation for the American people.
So, what they are investigating is whether Trump colluded with Russia to release information via WikiLeaks revealing that the Democratic Party had fixed their election. They are investigating Russia for meddling in an election that they had already meddled in. Meaning, we can fix our elections, but you guys need to stay out of it. Russia is being accused of a terrible crime in American politics. They are being accused of telling the truth. Nobody in Washington believes in stuff like that.
This is not the revelation, however. It seems like the battle lines are firmly drawn between the two political parties, but think about it for a moment. Why are the Republicans not responding to all of this by shouting to the sky for a full investigation into the DNC’s rigging of their primary? Why is there not a massive investigation into an actual known political scandal that resulted in millions upon millions of campaign donations being basically fraudulently taken from the American people? Why is Hillary Clinton not being specifically investigated for her possible involvement in the fixing of the primary? She may have not had knowledge of what was happening behind the scenes. This is true. But if we can investigate the Trump-Russia situation, then surely she should be looked at. They should be shouting it from the mountaintops. There should be committees, lawyering up, and sound bites all over the news.
Crickets. No one has mentioned it. It’s like it never happened. And yet, every single time they mention the collusion probe in the news cycle, this is what they’re talking about. The time that Russia leaked the truth to the American people about the rigging of the Democratic primary and how that may have changed the outcome of the election.
So, why the silence? Why are the Republicans not firing back and throwing shade on the other side? That’s an easy one. Because they are all in it together. They are all colluding. This is what they do. Trump is an outsider, just as Sanders was. They don’t know how he managed to stumble his way in to the White House, but they are all working overtime furiously to make sure nothing of the sort ever happens again. The collusion is on American soil by American politicians, and they are not going to try to have an effect on things by telling the truth. They are not Russia. They will do whatever it takes.

Terror Attack in Manchester After Ariana Grande Concert — False Flag Before Election or ISIS Strikes Again?

There are now multiple fatalities confirmed in an attack that the media is already recognizing as an “act of terror.” Just after an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, there is little information available right now, except that police are confirming multiple deaths. Early reports indicate it was an explosion, although other conflicting reports say there was gunfire as well. The amount of damage is unknown at this time, and reports about the deceased range from a couple to dozens. For reports to be this inaccurate is quite common in these situations. We should have more information in a few hours. However, as you know if you read here often, we are not going to report the news. There are plenty of news sources out there, and some of them even tell what really happened. What we do is analyze this from the conspiracy perspective.

We are already having some of our readers write in claiming that this is a false flag attack for different reasons. One popular one that is forming is that this is designed to shake up things before the major election in just a couple of weeks in the UK that was already hotly contested. And no doubt ISIS will be more than happy to claim responsibility for the incident, especially with President Donald Trump currently touring the Middle East (he is currently in Israel). In any case, we will be watching as more information comes available about this so we can help you figure out what is really going on behind the original story that we will no doubt be fed. Look for crisis actors to be a big factor, and there will be tons of enterprising Youtubers with their take on things.

Chris Cornell Dead at 52 — First Illuminati Victim of 2017 or Another Rock and Roll Tragedy?

So far it seemed the curse of 2016 had been left in 2016, a year now synonymous with some pretty heavy-hitting music artist deaths. Now, Chris Cornell becomes the first rock and roll passing of 2017 of note, and the questions will being all over again.

Cornell may not be as big a star as some of the people he will forever be in the same conversation with. There’s no question about the conspiracy theories regarding the death of Kurt Cobain of Nirvana, someone Cornell certainly was in the same circle with. And Cornell was deeply connected to Eddie Vedder and Pearl Jam even before their metaphoric rise during the grunge boom in the 1990s. Yet, Cornell, the lead singer of Soundgarden and Audioslave, may have been the most talented of the bunch. His powerful, multi-octave voice will certainly be missed on the rock and roll scene.

There is little to no information circulating right now as to how Cornell passed away. That is not mysterious in and of itself. It’s quite common for information to be sparse, and more will probably become available later in the day. Unfortunately, drugs will be suspected. Cornell had plenty of problems in his past with both alcohol and major drugs and spent his share of time in rehab programs. He has supposedly been sober for over a decade, however, and he and his wife even started a foundation that supports such noble causes. But to see a fellow that played multiple shows and was full of life this week die so suddenly and unexpectedly will definitely have many wondering if he had a relapse.

2017’s first victim?
An interesting note about Cornell that we want to point out is that there is little to no stories or speculation about him having anything to do with the Illuminati. It is inevitable that this will get tossed around today, and we already have questions about it in our inbox. Could Cornell’s death be the Illuminati’s first blood sacrifice of 2017? It doesn’t seem very likely at first glance. It’s almost unusual to see someone of his stature so unconnected from the Illuminati rumor mill, and that is not the kind of person that they would choose for such a sacrifice. There is no reason right now to suspect such, although that could change as more details become available. If we find out later today that Cornell died in a bloody bathtub, well, we might start to change our opinions, but for now, this looks like it may just be another music tragedy. Stay tuned to Common Sense Conspiracy as we find out more about this event.

We leave you with a video we did find from the fringe. While not about Cornell exclusively, this Illuminati expert analyzes the Soundgarden song Black Hole Sun and manages to tie it to all sorts of things that make little or no sense. Unfortunately, this is the kind of stuff that will spring up on the Internet overnight about Cornell with little or no evidence. It doesn’t mean it’s completely unfounded, but we just like to point out that if you try hard enough, you can tie anything to the occult. Stay tuned.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Now reports are indicating this could be suicide by hanging. This new information definitely could be a game-changer.
