The Tenth Anniversary of 9/11: An Inspirational Look

As most of you realize, Common Sense Conspiracy has only just recently opened its doors, so to speak, and over the coming weeks and months we will be filling up this site with well-researched information about conspiracy theories of all sorts.  Naturally, the tragedy of September 11, 2001 will be major topic.  We will strive to bring information in our typical common sense manner about the many theories as to what really happened that day.  Ten years later, there is still a huge public sentiment that not all of our questions about this polarizing event have been answered by our government.  September 11, 2001 is one of those moments in time in which everything in our lives seems to be split between before and after.  When a single historical event carries that kind of gravity, it should be expected that it will be scrutinized, and many conspiracy theories have been born of the simple fact that while we, the people, continue to ask questions, it seems that our government does not.  The events are laid down through miles of governmental red tape as if they were fact, and as far as they are concerned, the case is closed.  Here, on this site, we beg to differ, and we will examine it from every possible angle.

There is a temptation in a new website such as this to flood our little piece of the Internet with articles about 9/11 quickly to try to piggyback onto all the attention it’s getting from the upcoming anniversary.  While we fully intend to present arguments and counter-arguments regarding the events on and leading up to that day, but we place a very special premium on delivering quality content.  That is why there has been no mad rush to stockpile our 9/11 category.  It will be full, we assure you, in due time.  For now, we take a look at the anniversary of our generations day of infamy with a slant on what really matters.

All theories aside, here is a fact:

Those that lost their lives on that horrific day

On the morning of September 11,2001, the sun rose in the sky just like it always did.  We all went along our morning rituals with no idea about the life-changing horrors that lay just around the corner, but for most of us, it was viewed from afar.  We glued ourselves to CNN and other news broadcasts, fascinated as our nightmares roamed in the glow of an otherwise gorgeous late-summer morning.  We watched people actually decide that jumping out of a building was a better choice than burning alive on live television.  We held our children and tried to explain, but there were no words for it.  Ten years later, not much has changed.  The unfortunate thing about the human condition is that it does fade.  None of us can truly recapture the emotion of what we felt that day and in the days afterward.  If only we could all put that feeling in a bottle, that mixture of wonder, anger, and true, unadulterated concern for our fellow man, then we could tap into it when it were needed to push forward for change.  Justice.  Retribution.  They told us we were fighting an enemy masked in disguise, and now we still wonder who that enemy really is.  As we investigate and enrich ourselves by not simply accepting the “official” account of things, we also must take a moment to remember.  I don’t mean remember in the classic sense.  No “where were you when the first tower fell?”  No “what were you doing when the second plane hit?”  Not that kind of remembering.  Let’s remember together the people that went to work that day, just like you and I do day in and day out.  They were just simply doing their jobs, clocking in, heading to their desks or sweeping the hallways or cleaning the bathroom or plotting the next move of a multi-billion dollar company.  It doesn’t matter what they were doing.  They didn’t deserve it.

A lot of people compare 9/11 to Pearl Harbor.  Don’t misconstrue our message here; we at Common Sense Conspiracy fully realize that Pearl Harbor was tragic as well.  We also know that there are plenty of conspiracy theories floating around about that day of infamy as well, and no doubt they will soon make their way into our files here in due time.  However, Pearl Harbor was at the very least a military installation.  Can you imagine going to your workplace on any given day and dying at the hands of an attack like this?  No, of course you can’t.  None of us can, but it happened.  Not to soldiers or politicians.  It happened to people like you and me.  Everyday, ordinary people going about their lives the best way they knew how.

Even in the midst of despair come images of hope.

So as we commemorate the tenth anniversary of 9/11, let’s all remember those that lost their lives that day in New York, Washington, and a Pennsylvania field.  Let’s remember those that rushed to the aid of those that were lucky enough to escape with their lives.  There is no doubt that the tremendous acts of heroism that day by police, firefighters, military personnel, medical professionals, and yes, ordinary people, prevented that death toll from being even more than the staggering number it became.  We must remember not just on September 11, 2011, but all the time.  Instead of saying we must remember, it’s actually more fitting to say that we must not forget.

Was 9/11 a terrorist attack by religious extremists?  A false-flag operation?  Did our government stand by and let it happen?  These are questions we will ponder in detail, but as for now, all we can do is pledge each and every one of ourselves to not forget.  We won’t forget the fire and smoke, the awe and wonder intertwined with ash and dust.  We won’t forget the heroic acts of others that were just simply doing what they do.  We won’t forget the leaders that did forge a path to get New York, Washington, and the rest of us through a national tragedy.

We also won’t forget the unanswered questions.

Comet Elenin Update

According to a post at our good friends Above Top Secret, now on the very day that Comet Elenin is supposedly going to pass so close to the Earth that we will inevitably be caught in its tail of dust and space garbage, President Obama will be in Denver, Colorado.  What will he be doing?  Campaigning.  So, you say?  The airport at Colorado has some of the best bunkers in the country.  Looks like Obama is playing it safe, just in case.

Check out the “facts” at http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread749038/pg1.

Now, the newest theory is that the comet’s pass will somehow interfere with the Earth’s tectonic plates, unleashing yet more devastating earthquakes the world over.

Now we’re really screwed.

Comet Elenin on Save the Date cards — Real Danger or Fear Mongering?

The end of the world as we know it?

One of the biggest topics on conspiracy-themed websites right now is a comet named Elenin that was discovered by a Russian astronomer just last year.  Apparently, this comet’s trajectory will put it coming really close to Earth, perhaps closer than a comet has ever before.  This info has people writing on save the date cards in anticipation of this event.  Mind you, NASA and the government have reiterated over and over again that the comet is no threat to Earth whatsoever, but there are plenty of “experts” on the Internet standing bravely on their soapboxes to declare this as a possible calamity on par with the extinction of the dinosaurs.  The pass should come between the months November and December of this year.  That’s the basic facts behind this… the conspiracy theory revolves around the government downplaying the possibilities here to prevent worldwide panic.  Okay, at Common Sense Conspiracy, we check out and research these things, and up until point we’re with you.  Comet coming close to Earth.  Check.  The government probably wouldn’t tell us if a disaster of this magnitude was approaching us.  That is agreed.  However, there are some problems with the theory.

1.  No one seems to agree how close Comet Elenin will pass to Earth.  Do some research on your own if you like.  Visit our friends at Above Top Secret to get the whole doomsday scenario.  From our own investigation, it seems that even the worst estimates put the comet potentially passing at 8.8 Astronomical Units away from the Earth.  An AU is a unit of measure used in astronomy as a baseline for huge distances.  Put simply, it is the distance from the Earth to the Sun.  So, in the worst possible scenario, Comet Elenin will pass at just under 9 times the distance from the Earth to the Sun.  If you’re wondering, that’s around 720 million miles.  Not exactly a stone’s throw.  A lot of the doomsday scenarios concede that the comet will not strike the Earth, but the threat would come from the massive debris path behind the comet.  This would be true if the comet was passing, I don’t know, about 719.5 million miles closer.  However, there is absolutely zero chance that the Comet Elenin has a debris field behind it that will blindside the Earth from a 720 million mile distance.

2.  And then it gets crazy.  Like we said before, we understand the basic conspiracy theory here.  The government knows that something terrible is going to happen and doesn’t want the

Comet Elenin in all it's glory.

average person freaking out about it.  We fully believe that things like this happen at Common Sense Conspiracy; at least one of our scenarios about 9/11 involves just such a theory.  However, the conspiracy quickly turns from somewhat sensible to complete gibberish.  That’s right, in response to our claims that the Comet Elenin will not come anywhere near enough to the Earth to cause any effect at all, really, the conspiracy theorists have taken it to the next level.  Now, there is a huge extraterrestrial space object behind the comet, using its force to guide it to the Earth.  They’re coming.  Soon.  And you guessed it.  The government knows that E.T. is on the way, and they aren’t saying anything about it.  They are definitely not picturing the friendly E.T. you see in the dvd you picked up at the movie rentals place either.   Naturally, these theories are interesting, but there is absolutely not one shred of evidence that there is anything coming behind the Comet Elenin except an impressive tail of space garbage.

3.  Conspiracy theory spill-over.  This is a term we use here at Common Sense Conspiracy to describe how when one conspiracy theory needs some extra oomph, the first thing overzealous theorists do is reach for another conspiracy theory.  In this case, the Comet Elenin is now being tied to all sorts of nonsense.  Nibiru is a theory that has been in place since 1995.  Nancy Lieder, who has the dubious credentials of being the founder of the website ZetaTalk, put forth the Nibiru collision theory that involves an object striking the Earth sometime in the 21st century.  How does Ms. Lieder know this?  Hard astronomical data?  Facts and figures?  Expert opinion?  Absolutely.  It turns out that when Nancy was just a young girl, she was abducted by extraterrestrials.  They called themselves Zetas.  And they gave her the harrowing warning that Nibiru was coming.  Now, Comet Elenin enthusiasts are reaching for the obviously factual Nibiru collision theory as extra support for what is about to happen.  In conclusion, that means that the Comet Elenin, that is coming nowhere near the Earth really, in astronomical terms anyway, is actually the long predicted Nibiru object that we know must be coming because the Zetas told Nancy Lieder.  Thank God they gave her the warning right.  It gets better.  It turns out that none other than Nostradamus predicted the same event.  Clearly, we’re screwed.

We here at Common Sense Conspiracy certainly believe in conspiracies, but only when they are based in factual evidence or at the very least well-conceived.

Unfortunately, in the case of the Comet Elenin, neither is true.  But as always, we leave it up to a vote.  So what do you think about the Comet Elenin?

Welcome to Common Sense Conspiracy

Face the facts. Not every damn thing that happens in this world is the result of a massive global conspiracy. Or is it?

Let’s face it.  Conspiracy theories are all the rage these days.  Sites like Rense, Prison Planet, and Above Top Secret get hundreds of thousands of hits from those of us that suspect that not everything we are spoon-fed through conventional news sources is as it appears.  However, as conspiracy theories run rampant about everything from the Federal Reserve, the New World Order, aliens threatening out planet, comets seeking our extinction, faked moon landings, and grilled cheese sandwiches that have an uncanny resemblance to Jesus Christ, there has to be a moderator, someone who intervenes in the madness and separates between the juicy stuff that we are all anxiously searching for and the benign, National Enquirer-worthy diatribes that give the rest of us rational conspiracy theorists a bad name.  Therein lies the problem today; we have too many conspiracy theory websites spouting outlandish accusations and theories that have absolutely no basis in fact.  Intertwined in these are nuggets that every conspiracy theorist worth his salt needs to know about, but sometimes the bullshit quotient is just too high.  How can those of us that just want to be informed, to sensewhat the powers-that-be are really up to, and to gain a better understanding of the workings of a world that is the landscape that we live in every day do to separate fact from fiction?  How do we navigate the ocean tides of bullshit and from it rise to have a cohesive base of knowledge?  That’s what Common Sense Conspiracy is all about…

This website is dedicated to those of us that want to delve deeper into the fabric of this world we live in, but without having to filter it out for ourselves.  Wouldn’t it be a nice world where you can click on a news article and know that you are going to get hard, cold facts that lead you in a direction where you can form an opinion for yourself, not one that has been fabricated by someone for you to inhale (see the mainstream media)?  Common Sense Conspiracy is a coalition designed to filter through the implausible so that we may all get a little tiny bit closer to the truth.

The truth is… we don’t know.  But our mission statement is to move all of us closer to it, one article at a time.  And here at Common Sense Conspiracy, the truth is what we strive to make available, twenty-four hours  day, seven days a week.  At least our version of it.

Clowns like this give the rest of us a bad name.

So, as you navigate this website, let your mind wander in peace.  We will set you on the right paths and won’t allow insanity to get in the way of your search for the facts.  These other conspiracy-driven websites flood their space with every theory, any theory, that anyone wants to suppose.  We don’t play that game here…we call it like we see it.

As a good friend of mine once said (and still says most days):

 

 “Sometimes it is what it is.”

 And sometimes it isn’t.  Don’t worry.  We’re going to make it easy for you.
