Illuminati Symbolism, Freemasons, and the August 21 Solar Eclipse — A Myriad of Theories But What is Real?

The solar eclipse event on August 21 of 2017 has sprouted some very fascinating conspiracy theories. Eclipses have fascinated humans for centuries, and this ultra-rare occasion is one of those kinds of celestial events where you can kind of understand how people were confused or even frightened. After all, it’s not that often that the sun literally goes dark in the middle of the daytime. Despite all of our wonderful scientific achievements over these past hundreds of years, there is still plenty of superstition involved when an event like this closes in. In this article, we will discuss some of the theories floating around and let you see some of the wilder videos out there that claim to provide real evidence. And then, at the end, we will tell you what we think is really going on.
It doesn’t matter which major cult-like entity you bring up from the shadows of the conspiracy world, they are probably represented here. Illuminati? Check. Freemasons? Check. Massive government cover-up? It’s all here my friend. The videos below will show you a crap-ton of symbolism that people have found that all points that something pretty amazing is going to happen on August 21. And we’re not talking about amazing in the astronomical rarity sense.
Intertwined in all of that occult symbolism stuff is our typical religious superstition. There are many Christian websites saying that August 21 has some sort of significance in the Bible and that this is at best, a signal of the beginning of the end, and at the worst, the end itself. Others are saying that the Rapture will occur on this date to coincide with the eclipse.
If all that’s not enough, there’s the doomsday theories. One enterprising site is pointing out that the path of another eclipse that will happen in seven years (we all know about that number seven, right) will cross the path of this one, forming a giant “X” across the United States. Does this mean a major catastrophe is in store for the good old red, white, and blue? Or is August 21 itself the day that the world’s most dominant superpower will begin to not exist anymore? Throw in possible calamities and the coming of the mystical planet Nibiru, and you can see that the theories are literally all over the place. We even have a video that ties Disney into it all.
Last but not least, we have people suggesting that the eclipse will make brooms stand on their own, as is always suggested at the solstices as well.
What does it all mean? What do we at Common Sense Conspiracy think is going to happen on August 21, 2017? Well, everyone that visits here often should know that far be it from us to rain on a good conspiracy theory parade, but the reality is that there just isn’t anything to see here folks. Eclipses seem strange and fantastical to us humans riding on planet Earth, but the truth is it is just a very coincidental thing in the cosmos. Something that is inevitably going to happen, and it doesn’t really mean anything in particular. What is going to happen? An eclipse. If you are in the path, the sun will almost be completely blocked from sight. It will get dark in the middle of the day. It will be weird. Strange. But occult? No, probably not.
Basically, if there is a huge calamity that day or if the Rapture happens against all odds, the real coincidence is that it happened at the same time as the eclipse, and not because of it. That may not be as fun and it may not be nearly as successful click-bait on our site here, but that is our official opinion.
The biggest thing you have to fear on August 21, 2017 is that your glasses you bought on Amazon weren’t really good enough to withstand gazing at a solar eclipse. Be afraid. Be very afraid.



Why is the Mainstream Media Pushing for War With North Korea?

Generally, the mainstream media is considered to be supportive of what is referred to as the left in American politics. This is mainly the Democratic Party. We at Common Sense Conspiracy, of course, have long propagated the assessment that America really doesn’t have a two-party system. Really there is only one party, the establishment, and never at a time in history has that been as obvious as it is right now.
Every other news report you see right now will tell you that Donald Trump is recklessly pushing America toward an all-out nuclear war confrontation with North Korea. While this website does not support Trump and does not want to be misconstrued, we do want to point out what is really happening behind the scenes.
Does Donald Trump want to go to war with North Korea? Maybe. We can’t claim to know what’s on his mind or what his personal agenda is. The mainstream media (and therefore the shadow government) we can claim to understand, however. Just in the past couple of days there has been mountains of evidence that the mainstream media is pushing Americans to accept a war with North Korea.
One great example is the way the news reported Trump’s “fire and fury” comments. According to the media, Trump irresponsibly poked at Kim Jong Un without thinking. The way his comments are represented it appears as just that. He is threatening to nuke North Korea. What the mainstream media has left out each and every time is the rest of what Trump said. Trump’s comments might sound harsh, but they were all conditional. He did not threaten to attack North Korea unless provoked by them making the first move. This is far from just threatening to nuke a country because you have a problem with them. All of Trump’s comments have been represented by the media as if he is the aggressor and Kim Jong Un is a peaceful guy getting bullied. A simple Google search can give you a lot more information about what is really happening.
It doesn’t stop there. A news report last week cited as “Breaking News” said that North Korea may have succeeded in creating and miniaturizing a nuclear warhead. This is significant because it means they have the technology to fit it in one of those long-range missiles they are testing all of the time. The problem with the report is that it reported this as breaking news. It actually happened four years ago. That’s right. Why report that now again and make it sound like it was new?
Lastly, the situation in Guam comes to mind. After Trump’s comments, North Korea’s dictator fired back with what the media reported as a threat to attack Guam in the middle of August. Simply reading the reports reveals what actually happened. North Korea threatened to launch missiles in the vicinity of Guam in the water as an example of what they are capable of. At no moment did they say they would actually attack. The media said that in a blatant attempt to scare the public and turn their opinions.
So, you see the truth is that not much has changed. Is North Korea a problem? Sure, but why now? What has made it rise to the top as a critical thing that must be dealt with right now, no waiting?
Is the mainstream media so desperate to criticize Donald Trump for getting America into yet another war that they will literally start one?

New Theories Suggest That Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington Were Murdered

Both Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington were already the target of massive speculation. Many in conspiracy circles believed that these deaths had to be related, and may very well have been murders at the hands of the Illuminati. That’s a pretty standard theory anytime anyone of cultural significance passes away in a manner that is the least bit suspicious. We at Common Sense Conspiracy know that all too well. However, the theories circulating now are going in a different direction.

Yes, it’s still speculation that both rock stars were murdered and did not take their own lives. The reason is quite different, though. The current story is that Chester and Chris were about to reveal details including specific names about a major child pedophilia ring. The word on the street is that before they could make this revelation to the public and the authorities, the ring went out of their way to silence them. The theory is really gaining steam on social media, with many people that wouldn’t normally subscribe to Illuminati-esque conspiracy theories really giving it a second look. Let’s look at it in our trademark unbiased, common sense manner.

The story arises from some of these guys’ good works in their life. Chris Cornell founded a foundation that is all about working against sexual exploitation of children. He didn’t try to take a lot of credit for it, but breathed plenty of his money into it. Chester Bennington, who was really close friends with Cornell for years, also got behind the cause and was a major player in the organization as well. So, when both of them turn up dead in a very short period of time and both are supposed suicides by hanging, it was only a matter of time before someone started putting all this together. Is it conceivable that Bennington and Cornell’s organization was doing some legwork to uncover something big? Sure. Absolutely. But does that mean this is a murder to silence them? Well, there are a few problems with the theory.

First of all, while Chris Cornell may have founded the organization and invested a lot of cash in it, it’s unlikely that he was that involved in the day-to-day operation of it, and it’s even more unlikely that he and Chester would be the only ones that knew the information allegedly uncovered. So, even if it was arranged to silence these two, there would have to be several other people still alive that have this information. Now, you might suggest that it’s a scare tactic to all those other folks, but really, it wouldn’t be that hard to blow the whistle at this point. Someone out there would have to know the truth, and with these two very high-profile deaths, it’s hard to believe they wouldn’t be able to get someone’s attention. So, that alone makes it unlikely.

It’s infinitely more likely that someone knew about Cornell’s good works, and crafted a semi-believable story that many out there kind of want to believe because it makes Cornell and Bennington real heroes instead of two men that took their own lives, leaving their children fatherless. If you got to lose these talents, it feels better to lose them like that than the alternative. However, that doesn’t make it any more likely that this is what happened. It’s gaining steam because people want to believe it, and are eager to share it with their friends and loved ones, especially if they are fans. There’s nothing wrong with it really, but we are just offering our interpretation of the matter.

The bottom line is there is no evidence that this is true at this time. Reports that authorities have launched a full murder investigation are simply not true, at least not now. It hasn’t happened. So, it’s all speculation, and maybe it’s good speculation, but at the end of the day, that’s all we can call it based on the information that we have available. Hopefully if this is true, eventually more stuff will come to light that can allow us to make a real proclamation based on facts. Until then, speculate on if it makes you feel better.

Chester Bennington’s Wife Reveals Conspiracy About His Death on Twitter?

The speculation surrounding Chester Bennington, the lead singer of Linkin Park, is only increasing as more information has become available. Now, Chester’s ex-wife decided that this was a great time to confess to cheating on him with his best friend. She also made cryptic allusions to him already being dead before this and that he did not kill himself. Now, take this all with a grain of salt. We all know Twitter accounts are not that difficult to become hacked, and it’s entirely possible that is what we are seeing here. The Tweets have long been deleted, although we have a screenshot below harvested before they got around to taking them down. Whether these posts are authentic or not remains to be seen, but it certainly is throwing fuel on the conspiracy fire in the meantime.
Another part of it that is getting a lot of press is that Bennington chose to commit suicide on the birthday of Chris Cornell. He and Cornell were good friends, and Bennington even sang at Cornell’s funeral last month. Is this some sort of Illuminati symbolism or could it be that Bennington was so depressed about the loss of his friend that he decided to take his own life? What do you think? As we continue to monitor this developing story, we encourage debate in the comments below.

Linkin Park Singer Chester Bennington Dead at 41 — Illuminati’s Latest Victim?

We are already getting flooded with emails about this latest celebrity death. Chester Bennington, the lead singer of Linkin Park, is dead at the age of 41. And in a story that is all too familiar, it’s not ordinary, natural death, but yet another suicide by hanging. Remember Chris Cornell? Robin Williams? Well, now you can add Chester to that list. The theories in conspiracy circles are firing up, as you might expect. If you are typically skeptical of this sort of thing, you do have to stop and give them a little credit. These types of deaths are strange. Bennington was far from a has-been. Linkin Park just recently topped the charts with an album last year. They were a vibrant band that had been not as visible lately, but still a force in the music industry. And here, the same old story. Next, we’ll hear the authorities talk about drug addictions. His loved ones will talk about how he had not a problem in the world, was excited about his next vacation or tour, and this was completely unexpected. Meanwhile, the mainstream media will dig into his past and find ways to make him look like a ticking time bomb. That’s what they do.
Is this the latest Illuminati blood sacrifice? It’s way too soon to tell right now. But it is suspicious, and these theories, while theories is all they are, do bear looking into. Common Sense Conspiracy will continue to keep an eye on this story as more information becomes available. Below, we have posted a video of some of the typical suggestions we are getting from some of our readers. While they are short on evidence, for sure, they are interesting, and deserve to be heard out. The video also claims to be predicting this event, although we all know that it is easy to fake something like this after an event has happened. We encourage discussion on this in the comments below.

Was True Blood’s Nelsan Ellis an Illuminati Sacrifice?

We have to respond because we’ve had multiple questions about this incident. There are people out there questioning the circumstances surrounding the death of Nelsan Ellis, a star of HBO’s True Blood television series. The 39-year-old died of what is now being called complications to alcohol withdrawal.” While we will grant that this is not the most straightforward cause of death we’ve ever been fed for a 39-year-old man that appeared to be in excellent physical condition, there are a few reasons why we at Common Sense Conspiracy would tend to think that this is not an Illuminati sacrifice situation. First of all, even his immediate family are telling his story in a fair amount of detail. They do not seem shocked or to be questioning his death, but wanting to use it as a message or inspiration to others that may be going through similar situations with themselves or people close to them. You generally don’t see that kind of behavior from family when a death is controversial or suspicious. Second, he doesn’t fit the profile of an Illuminati sacrifice. These are powerful, influential people or people close to them. They are people that almost anyone walking around would at least know something about. While Ellis may be a great actor, and his part in the True Blood series was certainly beloved by its fans, he was not the kind of household name that one would generally connect to an Illuminati sacrifice.

So, it’s with these reasons that we don’t think there’s any fire to go with this smoke, at least not based on what we have found out at this time. Below are some folks out there who think different. We share it for those who want to hear the other side. And because it’s kind of entertaining. In any case, we will continue to watch this story, and if anything changes in our opinion, we will let you know.

Mainstream Media Now Resorting to Extortion of Private Citizens

CNN has had plenty of troubles recently as they’ve seemed to totally implode after the unexpected Trump win in the 2016 election. But they have certainly crossed a line that shows you just how corrupt and propaganda-filled our mainstream media is.

In over a year, CNN can’t find real evidence of a connection between Trump’s campaign and Russia, but they tracked down the guy that made this video in three days.

Now, a quick word. This is not an automatic endorsement of Fox News or any other news organization. We at Common Sense Conspiracy firmly, firmly (did I mention firmly?) believe that all of these organizations are pushing the agenda of the shadow government and none should be trusted as far as you can throw it. So, this is not us saying CNN is so bad…watch Fox News so you can get the real story. No Fox News is shoveling plenty of the same, and the way they try to present somewhat opposing sides is actually them colluding together to keep Americans at each other’s throats though they rarely know any real reason why. But CNN did cross a line here.

Somebody out there made a silly video of Donald Trump beating a CNN mascot professional-wrestling style. The clip was taken from when the Prez actually did appear on one of these shows earlier in his career. Someone did a little manipulation to make it look like Trump was beating up on CNN. It was silly, and only mildly funny, really, but Trump liked it (imagine that?) and sent it out into the Twitter-verse. Next thing you know, it was a really big viral deal.

Now, most people would say that’s cute, whatever, and go on about their business. Not CNN. They took a silly, amateur Internet sensation and called on their best investigative journalism skills to track this person down. Now, they were threatening him, saying they would expose him if he didn’t remove the video and go away.

In the legal world, that is called extortion. It is, well, pretty illegal, and some people at CNN were actually bragging about the whole thing. Bragging because they are bullying someone into taking a silly video that had nothing to do with anything off social media. That’s what they’ve been reduced to.

It’s pathetic. It’s silly. It’s also scary. It’s pretty frightening that we are seeing a member of the mainstream media actually harassing a private citizen over something like this. Imagine what it’ll be like when they start harassing private citizens for something that actually matters.
