Conspiracy Rumors Circle Around the Inauguration of Donald Trump — What’s Really at Work Here?

If all goes well, on Friday, January 20, 2017, Donald Trump will be inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States. If Hillary Clinton had won the election in November, the only conspiracy theories being tossed about would relate to what she was going to do when she gets into power and how it might relate to things like the New World Order and the shadow government. Because she didn’t win, we have the most controversial moment in perhaps all of American history. Donald Trump being inaugurated as President of the United States is causing an unprecedented wave of paranoia and conspiracy rumblings. Common Sense Conspiracy is ready to dissect some of these theories that are being discussed and give our take as the big day approaches.

The bottom line in a lot of these conspiracy theories that are forming is that many, many people in conspiracy circles simply believe that Donald Trump will not be allowed to continue to live as the American President. It depends on how you look at it. If you believe that Donald Trump infiltrated the political system in the United States as an outsider and somehow won the election outright in a move that even the shadow government could have never predicted, then it probably seems highly likely that the shadow government might deem him unable to continue breathing. If you believe that Donald Trump is not really an outsider, and he is really just another iteration of the same things we have seen before, then his assassination seems markedly less likely. Compounding on this theory is the controversial news that the head of the security at the inauguration event will actually be stripped of his authority during the ceremony. Meaning that once Donald Trump legally becomes President, that guy loses his job. This is unusual and unorthodox. It means that there’s a guy that is supposed to be in charge of providing security at the inauguration that has a lot of reason not to be that concerned about it. This move is blessed by outgoing President Obama, which makes many wonder if we aren’t seeing a setup already from the very beginning of the would-be Trump Presidency.
Having said all of this, an Inauguration Day assassination of Donald Trump, while bold, seems unlikely. It’s not that we don’t think there are people in the highest levels of the American government that desperately want to see this never happen. Sure. But the bottom line is that while Donald Trump may very well be the best example ever of an outsider infiltrating the political system, he’s not the only one. As a matter of fact, it is entirely possible that one young Barack Obama was everything he claimed to be before he came into office. Barack ran for President wholly on the idea of change coming on the heels of a rocky George W. Bush Presidency and a divided nation over wars that many deemed unnecessary and ill-contrived. He made a lot of promises along the way. He promised to end the wars quickly. When he got into office, he quickly changed his tune. He also pledged to close the controversial Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba. He would wait until the end of his second term to even start to make some sort of move on that front. The bottom line is that if Barack Obama was an outsider when he came into office, he quickly learned that if you say what you are supposed to say and go along with the agenda, they will let you live. And that is what happened. Good little Presidents don’t step out of line. When they do, well, see the Zapruder film for more information.
So, it’s unlikely that they would choose to assassinate Trump before he even becomes President. After all, he might dance the way they want him to. He might be shocked into submission when he learns how it really all works. They might find that they can use him as a fall guy for their evil intentions (see George W. Bush for more information on this one). The only way they would think that this situation was so severe that it had to happen in broad daylight in the heart of the nation’s capital before Trump even actually took one breath as President of the United States is if they actually perceived Donald Trump as such a dire threat to the American shadow government’s agenda that they had no other choice. We can’t see any reason they would feel that way. Donald Trump’s campaign served to divide America more than ever (although not all of his own doing), and the shadow government quite famously likes that. While Trump may have risen up as a surprise, it doesn’t mean that they don’t see some value in him as President. But only if they know they can use him and bend him to their will. If he doesn’t show that he is pliable, they will make a move.
But probably not on Inauguration Day.
Moving on, let’s look at some other theories. There are still those in conspiracy circles that believe that President Obama will not leave office on that day. They believe that martial law will be declared and President Obama will remain the President for the indefinite future. How could this happen? There are a couple of theories.
One theory is that President Obama will ignite a full-out war with Russia in the next five days, leading to a conflict where he can declare himself as having to stay President, especially referencing Trump’s supposed ties to Russia. This is unlikely at best, but we do have troops sitting along the Lithuania-Russia border, and it wouldn’t be as difficult to escalate as you might think.
Another theory is that full-on chaos will erupt on the eve of the inauguration. We have seen threats of “The Purge” movie becoming realistic in the wake of this event. Many, many protests are planned, and there’s no doubt that some things are going to happen. Could civil unrest be so dramatic that a martial law declaration was necessary? Not likely, but possible.
So, in recap, it is the opinion of Common Sense Conspiracy that the most likely outcome is that Donald Trump becomes President on that day without incident and the coming weeks and months will determine whether he lives to see the other side of said Presidency. However, these theories are not completely unfounded, and it is certainly possible that we could see a huge conspiracy-related event unfold in the coming days. Stay tuned.

While You Were Sleeping: Obama Deploys Special Forces to Russian Border

Congressional hearings trying to get to the bottom of the repeated Russian hacking accusations revealed some pretty eye-opening facts on Thursday.  The hacking is now being called an “act of war” by heads of intelligence agencies as well as Senator John McCain.  This represents a really scary coalition between party lines in America to justify an upcoming showdown with Russia.  But you won’t find much mainstream news coverage about this even more interesting (and frightening) fact.  President Barack Obama, who only has two weeks left before he is no longer in his current position of authority, has deployed United States Special Forces along the Lithuania-Russia border.  What for, you ask?  Oh, yes, the unthinkable.  There is growing fears that NATO might strike Russia in some sort of misguided punitive action, and Donald Trump may be just days too late to stop it.  Would Obama approve something that might launch an all-out war with Russia just days before he leaves office?  And what would happen if he did?  Could this be the moment so many conspiracy theorists have been waiting for when Obama somehow finds a last ditch effort to declare martial law and stay in power?

What do you think?  And did you hear this on your local news?  We’re betting not.

President Obama Will Punish Russia For the Least Flagrant Thing They Have Done

President Obama will announce “punishment” against Russia today in the last days of his Presidency for the as yet unproven allegations that Russia was engaged in hacking activities that helped Donald Trump win the United States election in November. Now, perhaps at the press conference to announce this punishment, President Obama will provide some serious evidence that Russia did indeed do this, but we at Common Sense Conspiracy consider this unlikely. Why, you say? Because this was never really what it appeared to be from the beginning.
During President Obama’s eight years in office, Vladimir Putin and his Russia have frequently embarrassed Obama on a variety of issues. From taking the other side in the Syrian conflict to the controversial actions in Ukraine, Putin has always been quick to do whatever he can to make Obama look foolish. While almost everyone recognizes that Putin has done this, Obama has continued to take the high road and act as if he has taught Putin a lesson. This is not true by anyone’s standards. Now, for all of those actions, some of which were major international intrusions, President Obama shook his head, made vague threats that everyone knew would not come to fruition, and continued to mostly just do what he was doing. But now, he’s getting tough. Why? Because he thinks that Russia caused Hillary Clinton to lose the election.
Never mind the fact that there has not been one allegation or shred of proof of actual hacking of election results. That’s not what they are insinuating. They are saying that Russia helped influence the United States’ election by revealing information it did not acquire honestly. Now, no one anywhere has debated whether the information released in WikiLeaks was true. This is actually disconcerting, because it would have made a lot more sense to deny all the way. Instead, they are admitting the corruption revealed by whoever hacked those emails is absolutely true, but it’s not fair because ordinary Americans weren’t supposed to know about it. To summarize, Russia is supposedly guilty of interfering with the American election because he revealed the corruption that was taking place within the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton’s campaign. They are mad because Russia revealed all of the dirty tricks that were taking place beneath the surface. These dirty tricks were not something that Americans didn’t already believe was there, they just didn’t have proof. Russia may or may not have provided proof.
In any case, all of a sudden big bad Obama thinks something must be done because the Democratic Party was supposed to dominate America for decades after the mess of the George W. Bush years and there’s just no way that Americans could have voted against his party unless an evil person from halfway across the world were somehow involved.
Seems legit.

The Government’s War on Fake News is a War on You

They are laying it on pretty thick.  In the wake of Donald Trump’s unlikely Presidential victory, the opposing party is pulling out all the stops to try to discredit his election win and explain it away.  Now, Common Sense Conspiracy is not a political site, and we have frequently explained our one-party two-party system theory about the American government.  However, in a case like this, it’s important for our readers to realize that while it looks like partisan politics playing out in a high stakes game, the loser and target is always you and I.  This situation is no exception.

The new battle cry against fake news seems like a turning point.  We all see the conservative and liberal versions of extremist news sources on our social media feeds and in our email.  It’s true that both sides are “liberal” with the facts, and in many cases, it is just spreading incorrect propaganda to forward an agenda.  However, when President Obama and company say they are going after “fake news” that is not what they mean.  Fake news to them is anything that directly takes on their narrative.  Fake news, according to the likes of Obama and Hillary Clinton, would be sites like this one.  Any site that doesn’t go along with their absurd official story and tries to inject facts into the equation will qualify as fake news in a heartbeat.

That’s what is so sinister about what they are doing here.  It’s calculated.  It may seem like it’s about Trump, or just sour grapes from sore losers of a hotly contested election.  But it’s just the beginning.  They will start by targeting the extreme news sources we referenced earlier, but soon, they will expand it out to include sites like this and any other site out there that is presenting a fact-based approach to their disinformation campaigns.

You have to look at what the other hand is doing.  It’s like a sleight-of-hand trick they are playing right in your face.  They make you think one thing, and it is a reasonable one that makes a lot of sense.  Meanwhile, the other hand is up to something much more sinister.  The only thing you can always count on in their schemes is that the loser is always going to be you.

Fake news is bad.  But the biggest proponent of fake news in America is the mainstream media.  That alone should prove that their intentions are less than honorable.

Is the Assassination of Russian Ambassador to Turkey This Generation’s Archduke Ferdinand Moment?

Today, the Russian ambassador to Turkey, Andrei Karlov, was sinisterly assassinated in a very public way.  The gunman, now killed by police, left absolutely no doubt as to what his motivation for the killing was.  Could this be the moment that so many in conspiracy circles have waited for, hoping against hope that it would never come?

The climate between Turkey and Russia wasn’t all that great.  There is much turmoil over there gigantic, gaping disagreement about what is happening with Syria.  While their relationship had warmed slightly in recent months, overall it’s not a very friendly one, so it is obvious that world events dictate that a seemingly small event could set off a set of dominoes leading to a World War 3 situation.  Don’t think so?  Time for a history lesson.

Archduke Ferdinand is the guy that got assassinated and it literally set the entire world into the first World War.  He was the Archduke in Austria.  Flashing forward to our time, it is hard to believe how that could start an international conflict that would claim millions of lives.  But just look at Syria and the Middle East.  Look at ISIS and the power vacuum.  Look at Russia’s increasing aggressiveness in the last couple of years.  And look at the arrival of a President Donald Trump on the scene in a few weeks.  If ever there was the possibility of this generation having a Ferdinand moment, this certainly seems like it could be it.

On the naysayer side, there will be those that say the world has changed since 1914, and something like this isn’t enough to start this kind of explosion that almost guarantees a mutually-assured self destruction conflict.  Yet, those same people would have told you the same back then when the world declared that World War 1 was the “war to end all wars” and it would never happen on that scale again.  It wouldn’t even take that long for it to happen again.  They couldn’t have been more wrong.

Anyone that knows anything will tell you that a World War 3 scenario is inevitable.  We all just hope that it is many years from now, but it would be foolish to think that it cannot or will not happen again.

Having said all of that, Common Sense Conspiracy wants to remind our readers that events like this happen from time to time, and more often than not, they do not spark international conflicts.  It is perfectly possible that Russia and Turkey realize this is an isolated conflict and don’t let it turn into an arms race of epic proportions.  But Vladimir Putin is not known for that sort of standoffish behavior.  It may very well depend a lot on how Turkey reacts, and whether their reaction satisfies Putin to the point that he doesn’t push the issue.  Also, there is also the wild card of what an incoming President Trump might say or do in such an incendiary situation.  It’s a crazy time to be alive , people.

What do you think?  Is this the shot that will be heard and felt around the world?  Or just an unfortunate incident that civilized nations will work around?

Hillary and Putin Have Beef — Are We Going to War With Russia for Democrats to Save Face?

Hillary Clinton could have done a lot of things to make her so-called love for the country front and center in the weeks since her unexpected loss to Donald Trump in the election.  She could have calmed the divide in America by rejecting the protests in the wake of her loss.  She could have discouraged civil unrest by speaking out and telling those trying to hijack the Electoral College that it’s time to unify under one American banner and accept defeat.  She did neither.  And after a period of silence, she is back out in the open doing what her and President Obama’s administration were tasked with by the New World Order to come:  work overtime to make sure America is as divided as ever.

Many, many Democrats revolve their whole schtick around their supposed anti-war sentiments.  Well, with the hacking allegations regarding Russia, it is looking ever more likely that America and Russia are headed for a showdown.  But wait a minute!  How can that be when Putin got exactly what he supposedly wanted?  After all, the word on the street (and from multiple United States’ intelligence agencies) is that Russia pulled out all the stops to make sure Donald Trump would be the next President of the United States.

Hillary now says that the reason Putin got Trump elected (because clearly that is what happened in all ways you may consider it) was because of “beef” they had that dates back to when she was Secretary of State.  According to Hillary, she herself caused major unrest in Russia and caused Putin’s own people to question his judgment.  Of course, no one remembers any of that happening in the real world, but that has never mattered if you are a Clinton.  So, an angry Putin decided to set loose his hackers on the DNC and dismantle democracy.

President Obama is pushing this hard.  Hillary Clinton is now pushing this hard.  Donald Trump says it’s all lies.  Who is right?  Who is telling the truth?  Are we about to be plunged into World War 3 with Russia all because the Democratic Party can’t accept that anything less than a massive international conspiracy could have derailed their 3rd straight stranglehold on the White House?  And aren’t they the first and foremost criticizers of conspiracy theorists everywhere?  Now, they are proposing perhaps the greatest conspiracy theory of all time to override the possibility that maybe their agenda has lost touch with the people that it is supposed to represent?

Assuming an Electoral College history-making event, Donald Trump will assume the Presidency in a few short weeks.  Perhaps this will calm down this sudden firestorm.  After all, we have President Obama, the king of doing nothing at all in the face of danger, promising “retaliation” against Russia for interfering with the American election.  Would he be as fired up if Hillary had won in a landslide?

Probably not.

The Irony of the Government’s Russian Hacking Probe — Mad Cause You Did It Better Than Us?

The CIA and other government agencies are indicating that Russia was involved in some sort of cyberwarefare activities to influence the United States’ Presidential election last month. As a matter of fact, they have been saying that for a while. It just didn’t matter that much until Donald Trump shocked the world by defeating Hillary Clinton in the Electoral College. Now, it’s a big deal.
Let’s put this in perspective for a minute though. The government is accusing Russia of using hacking as a means to influence the outcome of the United States’ election, the same election that Russia hacked emails from the Democratic National Convention and then gave them to WikiLeaks who in turn released them to the public revealing that the United States had fixed the Democratic Primary. Get that?
It’s now common, factual knowledge that Bernie Sanders was never in the running for the Hillary Clinton’s spot as the Democratic nominee. The fix was in. He made a good showing publicly, but he never had any chance. They made sure of it. And the same powers were at work in the general election. The government is angry because it appears that Russia was better at fixing the general election than they were. Now they have an outsider in the Presidency. Bummer for the elites.
Another big question is why Russia would want Trump to be President in the first place? The emails that they hacked are great material to control a Hillary Clinton as President. What could possibly be the rationale for Putin and the Russian government wanting a hothead like Trump as their primary competition amongst world superpowers? It seems much more likely that Russia was preparing for a Hillary Clinton presidency, and now the hacking is just being used as a means for the government to explain how an outsider could have infiltrated their elite system.
Of course, this theory all hinges on the idea that you truly believe that Donald Trump is an outsider that has used the Republican Party as a gateway to the Presidency. What do you think? Is Trump in league with Russia? Was this all part of an elaborate plot to deny Hillary Clinton her lifetime achievement award? Are there more sinister intentions of the Trump/Russia partnership? Or is this all an attempt to undermine Trump’s unexpected, shocking win by questioning its legitimacy and convincing the American people that the election’s outcome was influenced by an old enemy?

After all, there’s just no way that Trump could have just won without some help, right?
