Is Hurricane Michael Proof of Global Warming?

Hurricane Michael was fierce, that’s for sure. It seemed to spring up out of nowhere. Normally, hurricanes form off the east coast of Africa and slowly but surely gain steam as they approach the North American mainland. Michael didn’t do that. This almost category 5 hurricane seemed to self-start out of the gulf and invade in a matter of hours, not days.

There are those out there that want to use this as ammunition that global warming is the real deal. They will say that storms like Hurricane Michael are going to now be commonplace. Late in the season too. It’s the new normal.

Flash back to Hurricane Ivan. Rita. Even Katrina. They said this was the new normal then too. Then, almost ten years went by without any such catastrophe.

It doesn’t make any difference whatsoever whether you believe in man-made climate change contributing to global warming. Take that and whatever your bias is and throw it out the window. The reality is that whether or not we are on the brink of extinction of the human race, it has nothing to do with Hurricane Michael.

We are now being told by scientists that within ten years, the Earth will be uninhabitable if we take no action. And yet, no one is sacrificing their children or making a run on the bank. Why does this super-dire prediction have such little effect on life as we know it?

Because almost everyone realizes it’s not the real deal. Hurricane Michael was fierce and strong and he cost a lot of money in damage and irreparable loss of life. But he is not proof that there are more to come after him. That waits to be seen.

Conspiracy Definition — You Have to Start Somewhere

Most of our loyal readers can spot a conspiracy when they see one, but not everyone out there is as comfortable with the label. That’s why we are going to take a quick moment here to talk about the definition of a conspiracy. However, we are not talking dictionary definitions here. We are talking about what it means in the real world.

The conspiracy definition according to Merriam-Webster is simple. It’s a plot against something. Maybe unlawful. Maybe not. Some other sources quote a conspiracy as having to have a certain number of people involved, even going as far as to say that any plot between two people is a conspiracy. These definitions are true enough if you are getting technical, but we at Common Sense Conspiracy realize that the average person looking for the definition of a conspiracy on Google is probably not looking for these textbook definitions. They want insight into just what this magical word really means.

Around here, a conspiracy usually means a powerful entity trying to pull the wool over the eyes of a less powerful entity for its own advancement or advancement of its agenda. The most classic example of that would be your standard government conspiracy. Cover-ups are included. Think about the gun control debate. There are many in conspiracy circles that believe the gun control debate is really about the government finding a way to convince citizens to give up their weapons without a fight. It can get really deep from there, but that is the general concept behind that conspiracy theory. A lot of others revolve around the government trying to control things or give up other civil liberties. If it’s not that, then it’s the government trying to hide something that it believes will either cause hysteria or give the people more reason to stand their ground.

Government conspiracies are almost synonymous with conspiracy theories, but that is hardly the only type. Business is another realm where we often hear this term being tossed around. Then there are religious conspiracies a-plenty. However, at their roots, all of these types of conspiracies follow our general definition above. All conspiracies are going to probably involve a higher power trying to hold a lower power down for whatever reason.

So, we don’t know if we really cleared up anything, but it was worth taking a moment and a post to try to clear this up and help people out there that want a better picture of just what the “C-word” really means. They are all around, that’s for sure, and Common Sense Conspiracy will continue to shed light on them when it can.

Presidential Alert Cell Phone Message — Don’t Be Alarmed…Yet

On Wednesday, October 3, all cell phone owners will get a text message at the same time around 2:00PM Eastern time. The government is trying to warn people that this is just a test to avoid too much drama, but the message hasn’t gotten around as much as it probably should have. The reality is that the “Presidential Alert” message is supposedly just a test of the wireless emergency system. But why now? What does this all mean?

It’s natural for those in conspiracy circles to want to know a little more about the story. Unfortunately, there’s not much to know. This system’s official purpose is to act as a way to communicate important messages in a major crisis, be it a natural disaster or war scenario. However, this kind of goes against a lot of conventional thinking. After all, an EMP strike would most definitely take out cellular communications, so this system would be altogether useless in that scenario. This leads some to believe that there may be another more sinister purpose to this test.

The theories are all across the board. Could this be a way of tracking people down? Finding out where people are and creating some sort or registry? Some have even suggested the message itself could have some sort of hidden meaning. We won’t know more about that until we see the actual contents of the message later on today.

Whatever your feelings on this test, there is one common thread out there. There is bound to be more to the story than they are telling us.

Kavanaugh Highlights Important Moment For America In More Ways Than One

The confirmation hearings for Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump’s hopeful Supreme Court Justice nominee, were going to be a highly-contested affair no matter what happened. The testimony by Dr. Ford last week took it to a whole new level, and now, even Trump has had to pump the brakes a little bit and ask for a little more examination into Kavanaugh’s past. Now, it goes without saying that anytime you are talking about someone who may become a lifetime appointee to the most powerful and influential court in the land (and quite possibly the world), there is a lot at stake, but this case has more riding on it than usual.

We are asking dangerous questions. It is popular to say that Dr. Ford is brave for coming forward and we should all believe her because, as the now popular hashtag goes, we must #believesurvivors. The point of this article is not to debate whether this woman is telling the truth. That’s the thing. It doesn’t even matter if she is telling the truth or not. Why, you say? Because truth or no truth, there is no proof. And without proof, we are opening a powerful door for anyone out there to say anything they like about anyone.

It’s a touchy subject, and that’s how it got to be this way. Being accused of rape or some variation of sexual assault is one of those allegations that will ruin your existence whether it rises to a criminal situation or not. Kavanaugh is going to be tainted by this forever, even if no proof of his guilt ever comes up. No one has corroborated the story yet, and Ford’s testimony created plenty of questions as well as answers. If this was a court of law, this case would be thrown out. There is absolutely no physical evidence, it is long past the statute of limitations for criminal prosecution, and it would be impossible to convince a jury that Kavanaugh was guilty of anything beyond a reasonable doubt. And yet, he will pay a penalty. Whether he is confirmed or not, his achievements will always have that asterisk with the explanation of how he may or may not be a sexual predator. That is something that cannot be changed at this stage, barring a full recanting of Ford’s testimony, which is equally as unlikely. His name is smeared for good. That may be something he deserves, and it may not. That’s the problem.

Going into the political side of all this, there are even more dangerous implications. A lot of people that oppose Kavanaugh’s nomination use the very logical, decent argument that why would you want to take a chance on this guy if it even seems like he may have possibly been anywhere near a sexual assault. It’s a legitimate argument. In the private sector, it would make a lot of sense. I don’t know if he’s guilty, but I’ve got a huge stack of applications. Why stop here? The problem, as the Democratic side of Congress well knows, is that it opens the door to more of the same. Democrats are smart enough to realize that when they do get back in control of the White House and they do get to put up their own guy, Republicans will find women to come forward and do the same thing. That’s whether it is truthful or not. Kavanaugh could set a precedent that any allegation means immediate dismissal as a candidate. It’s hard to see how we would ever get a Justice confirmed in that climate. That is why the Democrats sat on this information and didn’t even themselves really want to go this route. This was a nuclear option with no turning back for them. Believe what you want to believe, but while they won’t vote for him on principle, many Democrats hope that they put up a good fight for their base but he gets confirmed. That way, the future is safe for more of the same. Situations like this make it seem like we are seeing a clear divide in our so-called two-party political system. Actually, you are watching firsthand collusion on a massive scale. They all know exactly what they are doing, and much of what you see if just song and dance for the public. Behind closed doors, they all know what the score is.

Whatever the outcome here, it will not be the end of these kinds of stories. Whether that is a good or bad thing is a question for you, our readers. Let us know what you think in the comments below.

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.
