Alex Jones — A Cesspool of Bullshit?

Common Sense Conspiracy was created to try to provide a competent resource of relevant information that is based on factual evidence and not just fear-mongering overactive imaginations, especially those with an agenda.  For the past month we have done this, and the outpouring of support from our readers and the conspiracy theory community has made it obvious that people want us around and we have found our place.  One of the figures that most influenced our desire to create this site and forum is one Mr. Alex Jones, someone who day after day makes real conspiracy theorists look bad by spewing fact-less accusations so fast that it almost feels like we are being bombarded.  His websites are inundated with a “conspiracy theory” about every piece of news that comes out.  Over the next weeks and months, Common Sense Conspiracy will be taking on Alex Jones and company on several key issues, but for now, this wonderfully produced video using Alex Jones’ own audio shows that true extent of the lies he pushes in every medium he can find.

New World Order Goals? Control the Money

An interesting find on the internet reveals the evolution of major banks over the last twenty years or so.  Due to mergers, bankruptcies, bailouts, and more, this chart really shows how slowly but surely, the banks are being combined.  It’s kind of astonishing to see how few major banks remain and what percentage of the market they have to be controlling.  What’s next?  Will the banks merge into one and be gobbled up by the Fed?  Could this be another harbinger of the New World Order and a new currency for the Americas.

Hank Williams Jr. and a Major Lack of Consistency In the Country Music Community

By this point, most of you have probably heard about the comments made by country music superstar Hank Williams Jr. on the Fox and Friends early morning news show a few days ago.  Why a program on Fox News called upon Bochepus as a guest is questionable in and of itself, but to make it worse, the conversation turned to politics.  Hank’s strong comments about the President Barack Obama and his administration sent shock waves through

Legendary country music star Hank Williams Jr. came under fire for some untimely remarks about President Barack Obama.

the media, with the most resounding part being a “comparison” between President Obama and everyone’s favorite villain, Adolf Hitler.  The comparison is in quotations because this is another example of the media bending the words of someone to sensationalize it.  If Hank Williams Jr. had truly compared our current president to Adolf Hitler pound for pound, it would be startling.  After all, while many Americans seem to be displeased with Obama and his policies (much as they were with his predecessors as well), it would be totally unfair to draw a comparison to the purely evil atrocities of Adolf Hitler during his rise to power that eventually thrust the world into war.  Everyone knows the story of Hitler, and there is absolutely no similarities between him and Obama, or any other president past or present.  The problem here is that the media antagonizes the issue by listing it as a headline, thrusting disinformation that gets regurgitated later as fact.  “Hank Williams Jr. Compares Obama to Hitler” read the headlines.  Well, kind of.

The crux of the matter came down to a question regarding Obama playing on the same golf team with House Speaker John Boehner, a Republican who clearly opposes the President in about every way imaginable.  Hank Williams Jr. said that for Obama to be playing golf with Boehner was akin to the idea of Adolf Hitler playing a round of golf with Benjamin Netanyahu, the Prime Minister of Israel.  The analogy is a bit extreme, as Williams himself admitted later, but the point was not that Obama is Hitler-like, but that for him and a Republican that is responsible for trying to bash and derail all of his policies hanging out in a golf game is somewhat ridiculous…as ridiculous as the idea of Adolf Hitler, perhaps the most well-known Anti-Semite of all time (except for maybe Mel Gibson), shooting the breeze with Netanyahu, the leader of the Jewish state.

We at Common Sense Conspiracy are all about the facts here, and this is not a casting of our lot on either side.  When it’s all said and done, I think it’s rather obvious that Williams probably should have kept his mouth shut or chose a tamer comparison.  However, for the media to sensationalize the facts by portraying the commentary as a direct assault on the character of President Obama is just as bad as the comment itself.  What ever happened to journalistic integrity in this country?  What ever happened to reporting the facts accurately and letting each person decide for his or herself what to make of it?  The media claims to be this competent news source, but the reality is they are closer to the National Enquirer or TMZ.

Steve Jobs’ Death and the Suicide Debate — Fact or Fiction

As you know, we here at Common Sense Conspiracy try to provide relevant content daily to our loyal readers, and today, we noticed that we were experiencing a huge spike in traffic. Upon checking

Steve Jobs is probably best known for the "i" family of products that revolutionized cell phones, the way we listen to music, and of course, desktop and laptop computers.
into the searches that were leading a lot of new visitors to our site, we found that a lot of people were searching for terms like “Steve Jobs conspiracy” and “Steve Jobs suicide.” We had posted a small article yesterday simply communicating the breaking news of Jobs’ death here on the site, and I guess since we are normally involved with conspiracy theories, a lot of this traffic was driven here. First of all, while we hate that the tragic death of Steve Jobs’ brought some new visitors here, we’re glad to have you and hope you will enjoy the things our site has to offer. In the meantime, we have been looking into why people are searching for these things.
There seems to be a lot of rumors going around about Steve Jobs’ untimely death today, mostly stemming from timing. Jobs has been battling pancreatic cancer for some time now, and his recent transferring of power to a new CEO at Apple caused a lot of speculation that the cancer had taken a turn for the worse. Unfortunately, that seems to be the case. Apple actually was the first to acknowledge the passing of their foremost creative force, but they did not give a cause of death. This only led to further speculation and eventually the fever pitch of people wanting to know if there was something more than the media was telling.
Common Sense Conspiracy can see no reason to think that Steve Jobs’ death was a suicide. He even vehemently spoke out about suicide during an incident last year at FoxConn, a company that designs many of the components that Apple uses in its devices. Jobs took several measures to try to stop the dreadful events that were happening there and made it quite clear that nothing is worth taking your own life.
But did the onset of another long and arduous battle with cancer change his views? At this time, there is nothing but speculation. Anyone that knows the pain and uncertainty of a battle of this proportions can certainly understand why someone, especially someone like Jobs’ who had endured it before, would be willing to throw in the towel and call it a life. Certainly Steve Jobs has a myriad of achievements to hang his hat on. While it may seem like there’s some sense to Jobs committing suicide, there is no evidence. Right now, we simply have to wait and see.
So, as we say often here at Common Sense Conspiracy, sometimes it is what it is. Maybe Steve Jobs simply succumbed after a long, brutal battle with pancreatic cancer. If he did commit suicide, it is quite probably more details will arise as the dust settles over the next few weeks. If he did, does that change your opinion of him? Make it better? Worse?
Suicide or no, conspiracy or no, one thing is for sure…the man had a great influence over technology and has had an effect on many of our lives. No one deserves the torture of dealing with cancer, but it’s also a telling thing about the brutality of the disease. This man had not millions, but billions of dollars at his disposal, but even he could not conquer it. That tells you something about just how potent this disease is.
Cancer, the great equalizer. When it’s all said and done, the poor man with twenty cents in his pocket can die right next to the billionaire? We hope that whatever the outcome, Mr. Jobs rests in peace.
