Facebook, Spotify, and YouTube Ban Alex Jones — Instantly Quadrupling His Clout

No one here at Common Sense Conspiracy is a big fan of Alex Jones, but we have to sit back and say that he really got the last laugh on this one. The mainstream media, which incidentally now peddles more conspiracy theories than anyone out there, is claiming a massive victory now that Apple, Facebook, YouTube, and Spotify all decided, in what has to be a coordinated effort, to ban everything from InfoWars and Alex Jones on the same day. And it isn’t like there was some Roseanne-like Tweet that they are all reacting to. Apparently this has been something on these private companies’ minds for a long time and today is the day they decided to act. Like no one wanted to look like a follower so they all did it at the same time to make it look like they were a coalition against evil instead of dominoes falling. And yet, as is so often the case, they have completely misunderstood what they are dealing with.

Alex Jones peddles conspiracy theories. One of the reasons we at the CSC are not big fans is because he makes a lot of people look bad because he will advocate a conspiracy theory just for shock value, not because he really believes it. After all, this is the same guy that once declared himself “an entertainer” while under oath. Above all, Alex Jones exists to make money and advance his empire, and he won’t hesitate to push forward rubbish with no factual evidence if it will get him another soundbite. However, these companies are doing just the opposite of what they are intending. They are only going to make Jones’ platform bigger.

For a guy that peddles conspiracy theories of all types, no matter how ridiculous, and still has managed to create an internet conglomerate that is highly successful, this will only add to his legend. It’s like anything else in the world. It’s more taboo now, so everyone will seek it out. Jones will cash in on how he has been censored and shunned by the media, and he will also suggest that this is a huge indicator that he is credible. After all, if he was full of nonsense, why would they be so desperate to shut him up? Why would they turn down advertising dollars and customers unless they felt this was something they had to do?

Jones will survive this and come out the other side counting more money. He will find another way to distribute his meanderings to the masses, and he will become an even more widespread cult phenomenon because of this. Congratulations, big, bad media companies. You lose again, you only helped build what you wanted to destroy, and most importantly, once again demonstrated a complete break in the understanding of your customers.

Alex Jones may peddle trash, but it’s hard to argue with the fact that he played this one like a genius.

Royal Wedding 2018 — Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Not Immune to Illuminati and Reptilian Conspiracy Theories

It’s a beautiful and lavish affair that only comes around every so often…a Royal Wedding. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s whirlwind romance has captured the hearts of people worldwide, and now it has culminated in their wedding which attracted plenty of stars and powerful people. So, with this kind of audience on hand, there has to be some conspiracy theories, right? You don’t say. Common Sense Conspiracy has you covered.

The British Royal Family has always been a conspiracy playground. The death of Princess Diana is to Britain what JFK is to America. Also, there is a long-standing if not unusual theory that the Queen and perhaps others are actually reptilians. We’ve never been really hot on that theory but there’s plenty of videos and analysis out there of her “shapeshifting” in front of thousands of live viewers and millions back home. There is also plenty of Illuminati theories around Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. It wasn’t but just a couple of months ago that Prince Harry was being accused of making Illuminati hand gestures in a picture with American First Lady Melania Trump.

While there is a bit of a hangover because of the time difference, you can bet some videos of the wedding itself and Illuminati symbology are right around the corner. We will continue to update you as more theories are suggested, but for now, we leave you with some videos explaining some of what we discussed here. Did you notice something fishy at the wedding itself? Let’s talk about it in the comments below.

Santa Fe School Shooting — Conspiracy Theories Abound

Another day, another school shooting in America. The latest incident in Santa Fe, Texas is upon us. It’s early right now but early reports indicate as many as ten fatalities. There are possibly two suspects and even explosives involved. Common Sense Conspiracy does not report the news. The are plenty of places to get that. As always, we offer our condolences in this great tragedy but begin to analyze this event from what our readers come here for and that is how this plays out in conspiracy circles.
You’re going to see more of the usual here. Both sides of the gun control debate will cease the moment. Some enterprising conspiracy theorists will say that the government sanctioned the attack somehow as a reason to seize guns. Others will say it never happened. Within hours, YouTube will be flooded with “experts” showing crisis actors and triangulated maps showing themes in the geography of the shootings. There will be misinformation on a grand scale. We will find it was only one suspect after all and authorities will act like you are crazy if you even suggest there was ever news otherwise.
The most frightening part: we will find out that some level of law enforcement knew of this suspect and did nothing to stop them. This is almost always the case.
We at Common Sense Conspiracy urge our readers not jump to conclusions, but do ask questions. Don’t quote the news as a reliable source unless you’ve done your due diligence in investigation. Theories are fine, good even, but they should not promote an agenda without facts.
More information will come out over the next day or so and we will be able to get a clearer picture of what we’re dealing with here. We will monitor this story and the chatter and keep you up to date as we know more about this developing news story.

John Kerry and the Logan Act — Is This For Real?

A lot is being made, especially in conservative circles, about John Kerry and something called the Logan Act.  This is a statute that many point to as prohibiting a citizen from negotiating with a foreign government without the authority to do so.  John Kerry’s recent attempts to communicate with the Iranians in a failed effort to keep the deal he helped broker alive is being pointed out as a clear violation of this act, which would make John Kerry essentially a traitor to America.  We have included an informative video below about the Logan Act and what it is and what it isn’t so you can make up your own mind.

Like plenty of laws on the books, the Logan Act is outdated and unenforceable.  No law organization would ever in a million years try to prosecute someone on these grounds.  Yet, the law still exists for one reason and one reason only:   for the government to pull it out and dust it off for special situations when it sees fit.  This law is never used to actually charge someone with a crime.  It is only ever used as a reason to investigate someone or push an agenda forward.  Just recently, you can see that with several Trump associates in the Russia investigation.   No one will ever go to prison because of the Logan Act, but it just may over their coffers to federal agents everywhere.

What America Pulling Out of the Iran Deal Means For the Conspiracy World

Well, we could pull a fast one on you here and just simply say “Not much” and move on.  But we’re not going to do you like that.  American President Donald Trump’s controversial decision to pull out of the Iran deal brokered by his predecessor in 2015 is going to cause a lot of speculation, so let’s take a look at what has really happened here.

And both sides said “Whew, that was easy.”

Back in 2015, then Secretary of State John Kerry (also the man who actually lost an election to George W. Bush to grant him a second term as one of the most unpopular Presidents in history) and President Barack Obama were major players in an international agreement with Tehran.  The terms were simple enough in reality.  Tons of money that was frozen was given back to the Iranians and all the crippling sanctions were lifted.  In return, Iran agreed to put the brakes on its nuclear weapons program (you know, the one they insist to this day never existed).  There were going to be inspections albeit on Iran’s terms, a la Iraq in the 1990s.  Of course, those politically affiliated with Obama and Kerry heralded it as an unbelievable moment for peace.  Those that politically opposed them saw it as making a deal with an entity that 100% could not be trusted.

The truth is the original Iran deal was nothing but a political ploy, and it has worked just as Barack Obama intended.  John Kerry nor Obama are stupid (well, maybe John Kerry, but anyway); they know good and well that Iran cannot be trusted to hold up its end of the bargain.  Iran accepted the deal with open arms and probably enriched some uranium to celebrate their success.  In their own country, they probably thought it was the greatest scheme of all time, tricking the Americans into this agreement.  In reality, they were pawns all along.  Obama and Kerry knew it was a useless agreement, but now, they are getting to complete their political chess game with the American public.  As Donald Trump declares the useless and pointless agreement null and void, Obama and Kerry are outraged at this war mongering.  How could he do this?

The truth is, folks, that what this really means is absolutely nothing changed.  Iran never actually stopped what they were doing, and they had no intentions to do so.  What did stop was any pressure from the outside.  Now, the Iranian economy may suffer some repercussions from this, but for the rest of the world, the threat of Iranians with nuclear weapons is no more or less than it was yesterday.  And no deal brokered that hinges on the Iranians doing what they say is likely to ever change that.

So, if you slept good last night with the threat of a nuclear-armed Iran off your mind, nothing has changed, except it turns out you shouldn’t have slept last night either.

Lawyers and Hush Money — Trump Situation a Reminder That Washington Knows Nothing About the Life of the Common Man

Rudy Giuliani recently made national headlines when he joined President Donald Trump’s legal team.  It shouldn’t have been that surprising.  They are obviously friends and Giuliani did much to help Trump during his campaign.  His specific task this time:  help defend Trump in the media in the middle of a number of crises.  He didn’t waste any time, either.  He was making the rounds on the talkshow circuit, putting his expert spin on any and all things Trump.  What really got the talking heads excited was when he opened up about the Donald’s Stormy Daniels situation with a little more earnest.

Happier times than these.

Yes, Trump denied even knowing who she was.  Yes, he said repeatedly he had no idea Michael Cohen, his attorney, paid her money to keep quiet.  Now, Rudy tells the world that not only did Trump know about it, but he reimbursed Cohen’s $130,000.  But Rudy had a defense for all this.  It basically boiled down to this:  you don’t understand what it’s like to be rich.

Wealthy people pay “hush money” all the time, and they do it for a lot more than what Trump indirectly paid to shut up a washed-up porn star.  It’s something us common folk would never understand.  We don’t ever get in those situations and if we did, we don’t have the cold hard cash to buy our way out of them.  For wealthy people, Giuliani said, paying hush money was as normal as stopping by a Starbucks for a mocha.  Everybody does it.

It doesn’t have to mean your guilty either.  See, for normal people that don’t live in Washington, the idea of hush money indicates guilt.  After all, someone that is innocent would never pony up the funds to make someone just go away.  But in politics and even in big business, it happens all the time.  Companies decide to pay someone they know is in the wrong because of the uncertainty of fighting it out in court or even worse, being convicted in the court of public opinion.  That’s because we live in a world where just saying someone did something can have just as profound an effect on their life as them actually doing it.

Are we defending Donald Trump here?  Absolutely not.  Even the most over-the-top Trump supporter probably knows deep down inside somewhere that Trump probably did have that relationship with Stormy, and he probably did hush her up with big bucks because it was true.  Our point was just that it doesn’t matter whether he did it or not.  He still had to pay the money.  He was in the middle of a Presidential campaign that originated as an absolute joke, but about the time Stormy came throwing her business card around and threatening to tell her story was that magical moment when those around Donald Trump all of a sudden thought for just a second “Hey, we just might could win this thing.”

The truth is that Stormy is back because she got screwed (financially, not literally…well, maybe).  Think about it.  When Donald Trump was just a knucklehead running for President that no one thought in a million years could win, that $130,000 was good money to shut up and go away.  The truth is, Stormy and her people had no idea that the Trumpster was actually going to win the whole enchilada.  All of a sudden that $130,000 became a paltry sum when set against the backdrop of the presidency.  Stormy should have asked for more, and that’s why she’s back.  She was underpaid big time.

So, you see, we don’t understand.  Ordinary American citizens will never pay hush money for anything.  If they do, it will be like giving their kid twenty bucks so they don’t tell Mom they ate the last of the ice cream, not paying off porn stars for silence.  But in Washington and amongst the rich and elite, it’s just the cost of doing business.

Donald Trump may be an outsider to the establishment in our government, but he still is part of the elite club, and they couldn’t be more out of touch with what it’s like to be an average American in America.

Democratic Party Who Admittedly Fixed Their Own Primary Sues Republican Party For Fixed Election

It’s the kind of news story that you would think would make someone involved, and especially those that politically side with one of these entities, take a moment and go “Well that’s pretty messed up, isn’t it?” Not in America in 2018. Let’s recap the situation.
Back in the 2016 election, WikiLeaks came to the rescue of the American public by revealing in excruciating detail how the Democratic party rigged its primary process to make sure that Bernie Sanders had no chance of defeating Hillary Clinton and becoming their “elected” Presidential candidate. Now millions of Americans gave their hard-earned money to Mr. Sanders campaign, and these allegations which were not even really combatted by the party or Hillary Clinton’s campaign mean that they were basically defrauded on a mass scale. Like Bernie Madoff-style antics. Yet, there was absolutely no investigation into it at all. No one went to jail. No charges. All of a sudden it seemed that the characters on ABC’s Scandal television series were all sweating it about fixing an election for no reason. Apparently you can publicly put the fix in on America’s democratic process, have that revealed to the public, admit it more or less, and everyone just goes on about their business. Incredible, right?

The joke’s on you, America.

No, it gets better. Meanwhile, Donald Trump’s young Presidency has been plagued by a major investigation into whether or not his campaign somehow colluded with Russia to help him win the election. This investigation is now been going on for multiple years. While a lot of Trump associates are really, really worried, and some may even be going to jail, there is yet to be one shred of evidence that there was any collusion (something Trump repeats over and over) released to the American public. Yet, the investigation rolls on, and the investigation into the publicly-known fixing of the 2016 Democratic Primary remains completely accepted as fair play in American politics.
But wait! It gets better. Now, the Democratic Party is actually attempting to sue the Republican Party in the American legal system for fixing the general election based on no evidence at all whilst knowing and admitting that they fixed their own primary.
You can’t make this stuff up.
Wait. Yeah, you guessed it. It gets better.
The real kicker here is that the Republican Party never wanted Trump either, and instead of being shocked and appalled by what it was revealed that their counterparts across the political aisle were doing, they looked at it like “Man, why didn’t I think of that?” Prediction: Before the 2020 election, the Republican Party will install some sort of superdelegate equivalent to the Democratic Party into their system to make sure that never, ever again can a non-establishment candidate make it past the primary process. They may not be able to stop a true independent, but they can stop an independent from hijacking their party. The Democrats were smarter than that. They thought to fix their primary process to willingly override the will of the American people first.
Now what is that you say about collusion?
