Why is the Mainstream Media Pushing for War With North Korea?

Generally, the mainstream media is considered to be supportive of what is referred to as the left in American politics. This is mainly the Democratic Party. We at Common Sense Conspiracy, of course, have long propagated the assessment that America really doesn’t have a two-party system. Really there is only one party, the establishment, and never at a time in history has that been as obvious as it is right now.
Every other news report you see right now will tell you that Donald Trump is recklessly pushing America toward an all-out nuclear war confrontation with North Korea. While this website does not support Trump and does not want to be misconstrued, we do want to point out what is really happening behind the scenes.
Does Donald Trump want to go to war with North Korea? Maybe. We can’t claim to know what’s on his mind or what his personal agenda is. The mainstream media (and therefore the shadow government) we can claim to understand, however. Just in the past couple of days there has been mountains of evidence that the mainstream media is pushing Americans to accept a war with North Korea.
One great example is the way the news reported Trump’s “fire and fury” comments. According to the media, Trump irresponsibly poked at Kim Jong Un without thinking. The way his comments are represented it appears as just that. He is threatening to nuke North Korea. What the mainstream media has left out each and every time is the rest of what Trump said. Trump’s comments might sound harsh, but they were all conditional. He did not threaten to attack North Korea unless provoked by them making the first move. This is far from just threatening to nuke a country because you have a problem with them. All of Trump’s comments have been represented by the media as if he is the aggressor and Kim Jong Un is a peaceful guy getting bullied. A simple Google search can give you a lot more information about what is really happening.
It doesn’t stop there. A news report last week cited as “Breaking News” said that North Korea may have succeeded in creating and miniaturizing a nuclear warhead. This is significant because it means they have the technology to fit it in one of those long-range missiles they are testing all of the time. The problem with the report is that it reported this as breaking news. It actually happened four years ago. That’s right. Why report that now again and make it sound like it was new?
Lastly, the situation in Guam comes to mind. After Trump’s comments, North Korea’s dictator fired back with what the media reported as a threat to attack Guam in the middle of August. Simply reading the reports reveals what actually happened. North Korea threatened to launch missiles in the vicinity of Guam in the water as an example of what they are capable of. At no moment did they say they would actually attack. The media said that in a blatant attempt to scare the public and turn their opinions.
So, you see the truth is that not much has changed. Is North Korea a problem? Sure, but why now? What has made it rise to the top as a critical thing that must be dealt with right now, no waiting?
Is the mainstream media so desperate to criticize Donald Trump for getting America into yet another war that they will literally start one?

New Theories Suggest That Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington Were Murdered

Both Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington were already the target of massive speculation.  Many in conspiracy circles believed that these deaths had to be related, and may very well have been murders at the hands of the Illuminati.  That’s a pretty standard theory anytime anyone of cultural significance passes away in a manner that is the least bit suspicious.  We at Common Sense Conspiracy know that all too well.  However, the theories circulating now are going in a different direction.

Yes, it’s still speculation that both rock stars were murdered and did not take their own lives.  The reason is quite different, though.  The current story is that Chester and Chris were about to reveal details including specific names about a major child pedophilia ring.  The word on the street is that before they could make this revelation to the public and the authorities, the ring went out of their way to silence them.  The theory is really gaining steam on social media, with many people that wouldn’t normally subscribe to Illuminati-esque conspiracy theories really giving it a second look.  Let’s look at it in our trademark unbiased, common sense manner.

The story arises from some of these guys’ good works in their life.  Chris Cornell founded a foundation that is all about working against sexual exploitation of children.  He didn’t try to take a lot of credit for it, but breathed plenty of his money into it.  Chester Bennington, who was really close friends with Cornell for years, also got behind the cause and was a major player in the organization as well.  So, when both of them turn up dead in a very short period of time and both are supposed suicides by hanging, it was only a matter of time before someone started putting all this together.  Is it conceivable that Bennington and Cornell’s organization was doing some legwork to uncover something big?  Sure.  Absolutely.  But does that mean this is a murder to silence them?  Well, there are a few problems with the theory.

First of all, while Chris Cornell may have founded the organization and invested a lot of cash in it, it’s unlikely that he was that involved in the day-to-day operation of it, and it’s even more unlikely that he and Chester would be the only ones that knew the information allegedly uncovered.  So, even if it was arranged to silence these two, there would have to be several other people still alive that have this information.  Now, you might suggest that it’s a scare tactic to all those other folks, but really, it wouldn’t be that hard to blow the whistle at this point.  Someone out there would have to know the truth, and with these two very high-profile deaths, it’s hard to believe they wouldn’t be able to get someone’s attention.  So, that alone makes it unlikely.

It’s infinitely more likely that someone knew about Cornell’s good works, and crafted a semi-believable story that many out there kind of want to believe because it makes Cornell and Bennington real heroes instead of two men that took their own lives, leaving their children fatherless.  If you got to lose these talents, it feels better to lose them like that than the alternative.  However, that doesn’t make it any more likely that this is what happened.  It’s gaining steam because people want to believe it, and are eager to share it with their friends and loved ones, especially if they are fans.  There’s nothing wrong with it really, but we are just offering our interpretation of the matter.

The bottom line is there is no evidence that this is true at this time.  Reports that authorities have launched a full murder investigation are simply not true, at least not now.  It hasn’t happened.  So, it’s all speculation, and maybe it’s good speculation, but at the end of the day, that’s all we can call it based on the information that we have available.  Hopefully if this is true, eventually more stuff will come to light that can allow us to make a real proclamation based on facts.  Until then, speculate on if it makes you feel better.

Mainstream Media Now Resorting to Extortion of Private Citizens

CNN has had plenty of troubles recently as they’ve seemed to totally implode after the unexpected Trump win in the 2016 election.  But they have certainly crossed a line that shows you just how corrupt and propaganda-filled our mainstream media is.

In over a year, CNN can’t find real evidence of a connection between Trump’s campaign and Russia, but they tracked down the guy that made this video in three days.

Now, a quick word.  This is not an automatic endorsement of Fox News or any other news organization.  We at Common Sense Conspiracy firmly, firmly (did I mention firmly?) believe that all of these organizations are pushing the agenda of the shadow government and none should be trusted as far as you can throw it.  So, this is not us saying CNN is so bad…watch Fox News so you can get the real story.  No Fox News is shoveling plenty of the same, and the way they try to present somewhat opposing sides is actually them colluding together to keep Americans at each other’s throats though they rarely know any real reason why.  But CNN did cross a line here.

Somebody out there made a silly video of Donald Trump beating a CNN mascot professional-wrestling style.  The clip was taken from when the Prez actually did appear on one of these shows earlier in his career.  Someone did a little manipulation to make it look like Trump was beating up on CNN.  It was silly, and only mildly funny, really, but Trump liked it (imagine that?) and sent it out into the Twitter-verse.  Next thing you know, it was a really big viral deal.

Now, most people would say that’s cute, whatever, and go on about their business.  Not CNN.  They took a silly, amateur Internet sensation and called on their best investigative journalism skills to track this person down.  Now, they were threatening him, saying they would expose him if he didn’t remove the video and go away.

In the legal world, that is called extortion.  It is, well, pretty illegal, and some people at CNN were actually bragging about the whole thing.  Bragging because they are bullying someone into taking a silly video that had nothing to do with anything off social media.  That’s what they’ve been reduced to.

It’s pathetic.  It’s silly.  It’s also scary.  It’s pretty frightening that we are seeing a member of the mainstream media actually harassing a private citizen over something like this.  Imagine what it’ll be like when they start harassing private citizens for something that actually matters.

FALSE FLAG ALERT: North Korea Situation May Be a Classic Setup For An Operation

Here at Common Sense Conspiracy, talking about the possibility that an event was a false flag operation after the fact is pretty much standard operating procedure.  In this case, we just want to do it in reverse.

Now, we’re not publicly saying that there is going to be a false flag operation that ignites a war scenario between the United States and North Korea.  We’re just saying that it does look like a classic setup.  Let’s say it like this.  Let’s go meteorological.  It’s like a tornado watch.  Conditions are favorable for a false flag operation.  A lot of indicators point that something like that could happen.  It’s like when they change the terror colors.  Doesn’t mean it’s a sure thing, but it means there is at least some reason to speculate.

Is he really that crazy?

The buildup between the young Donald Trump administration and North Korea is slowly escalating.  It actually has been going on for years, but you can tell that there is some reason this is coming to a head now.  And for those that think that’s all Trump, stop it right now.  Hillary Clinton would have been just as aggressive (if not more so) than Trump on this matter.  It’s not about who the President is.  It’s about those magical men behind the scenes who have decided that now is the time.

So, you have the classic setup.  Nobody is real excited about going to war with North Korea.  It is a given that thousands of South Koreans will perish.  That is almost unavoidable.  There is the possibility that China and Russia might actually align with North Korea and plunge us into a real World War 3 scenario.  So, right now, it doesn’t look all that attractive to anyone to try to take Kim out.  But that drum is beating.  Every few days, North Korea does something to provoke, and the media shows us their progression.  The same people that told you last year that it may be decades before North Korea actually creates a usable nuclear weapon now say they may already have twenty (these so-called experts are so contradictory that they literally probably can’t remember what they said last week).  But still, why would anyone really say that this is the time to pull the trigger?

We’ll tell you.  There are two ways the war could ignite right now.  One is if North Korea’s leader is actually so crazy and has such a death wish that he would take one of his newly-minted intercontinental missiles and throw a massive explosion in Alaska, Hawaii, or maybe even Seattle.  Alaska seems the most likely.  He could detonate a missile in the middle of Alaska’s sparsely populated regions and say “Look, I told you I could do it.”  That would probably be enough for Trump to go get him.  But then, wouldn’t it be just as easy for the United States to drop a warhead in the middle of the Alaskan wilderness and say it was Kim?  See, that scenario doesn’t require anyone to be crazy or to have a death wish.  It just requires someone to be sinister and be pulling the strings.  In some ways, it would be one of the friendliest false flag operations ever, because no one would have to die for the fire to be stoked.

Is it likely?  Who knows?  Do we really think that the United States is about to firebomb Alaska to heave us into an all-out conflict with North Korea?  No, not really.  But you have to admit it isn’t the craziest idea you’ve ever heard.  If you are the type of person that believes in Tonkin, Pearl Harbor, and 9/11 being government operations, then this is probably small potatoes to you.  This is not even that grand.  If you’re the type of person that believes the government would never do anything like that, ask yourself why?  Because you believe they value American lives?  Maybe, but this doesn’t even require them.

Only time will tell, but we are just putting it out there.  Most likely nothing of the sort will happen, but if it does, well, I guess you heard it here first.

Anonymous Seems to Think That NASA Has Big News

A lot of news sources are tossing around a big announcement that the hacker group Anonymous made that seems to indicate that they have some knowledge that NASA is preparing to reveal to the world the existence of aliens. As is their pattern, they offer up little evidence as to how they came across this information, but only speculation. We do that here all the time, but we don’t present things as fact, or make the audience think that we have some kind of inside track that doesn’t really exist. In any case, we have said that the government might be preparing for something like this for the last several years. It seems that each time NASA unveils a big announcement, it has something to do with the search for life out there, and major discoveries in exoplanets as well as increased interest in some moons right here in our own solar system have only stoked the fire.
Anonymous makes it sound like NASA is about to tell us that aliens exist, UFOs are everywhere, and we might want to prepare for some sort of Independence Day Hollywood catastrophe. The truth is, if NASA did make such an announcement, it most likely wouldn’t be anything like that. It only takes discovering one carbon footprint or one single-celled organism out there for NASA to claim a universe-shaking discovery. They would never tell us if they found little green men, but it is conceivable that they might consider telling us that they found less exciting life forms out there. From a conspiracy perspective, one reason the government might want to go ahead with revealing this information has to do with the religious implications. Many scientists consider discovering life outside of planet Earth to be irrefutable evidence that there is no God and science has it right. There are plenty in the shadow government and New World Order types that would love to see this set off religious debate. Of course, most religions are at least somewhat prepared for this, saying things like God certainly could have handled more than just the Earth. There would also be plenty in conspiracy circles that would question the authenticity of such claims. How can we be sure that we haven’t transported life from Earth to another location (if it was found somewhere where we had already sent something that may have compromised the area)? Also, do we trust them in the first place? We have plenty of people that write in all of the time still questioning the moon landing and whether it is a hoax. So, while NASA and the mainstream media may represent this as irrefutable evidence, that doesn’t mean it won’t be questioned and debated. In any case, it would be interesting for sure. We will continue to monitor this and weigh in if such an announcement should actually occur.

Thoughts on the Supreme Court and the Trump Travel Ban

It’s safe to say that most of the time in the last few months, the mainstream media has been pretty anti-Trump. It doesn’t matter what you think about the man, it’s hard to deny that. You can argue that it was deserved if you like, or you can call conspiracy and say the media is trying to sour the public’s opinion on behalf of the establishment. You’d probably be right either way you go, but at the end of the day, that most of the press on Trump has been negative is pretty undebatable. However, today there was a reprieve as the Supreme Court agreed to hear arguments about Trump’s super-controversial travel ban. In accepting the case (which won’t be actually heard until the fall), they also ruled that parts of the ban can take effect despite having been held up in lower courts. If you don’t know what that means, let us make it simple for you: the court ruled that the lower courts had no legal standing to stop what Trump did. Now, the Supreme Court does have legal standing to do it, at least according to the way they interpret the Constitution, federal law, and precedent. We won’t know the answer to that question until probably October.
The press made a really big deal out of it on both sides of the equation. The conservative-dominated media called it a sweeping victory for Trump when nothing at all was really decided. The liberal-dominated media called it another example of bigotry (an argument that the Democratic party still refuses to accept is no longer as effective as it was in the past). The truth is that the Supreme Court did the right thing here. The President of the United States does have the authority to do this. It has been done numerous times before. Carter did it at the height of the Iran crisis. And one President Barack Obama also did it early in his presidency when Iraq was still a major threat. Neither faced any opposition to it whatsoever. Carter because it was before the dawn of the politically correct era, and Obama because the only ones that would have complained supported him. The President can do it, and he doesn’t have to have a mountain of evidence to make it happen. The courts did not have the authority to stop Trump’s plan, and the Supreme Court sent them a rebuke today. They interpret law, they don’t make law. The decision, in case you didn’t know, was 9-0, meaning four liberal-leaning justices agreed with the decision as well. You can bet it won’t be 9-0 in October, no way. But they all agreed that at the very least, Trump has the ability to put this into effect and at least let it play out.
The travel ban doesn’t make a whole lot of sense in a lot of ways. After all the proposed 120 day ban to give the government time to figure out how to go forward never went into effect, but now it’s been that long anyway. Apparently the travel has to stop for them to make a plan. It is also possible that Trump is facing so much opposition on this because there are movers and shakers in the shadow government that very much want the travel lanes to stay open. If you believe in things such as false flags and other conspiracy unicorns, then it follows that a travel ban from an outsider like Trump may actually be directly interfering with the powers-that-be and what they are really planning. Of course, this is speculation, and there is no evidence to support this. But if you think everyone out there is up in arms about the travel ban because they just love Muslims to death, then you are not seeing very much of the issue. In any case, these things will go into motion now, and Trump gets a feather in his cap. But the feather may very well be removed when they hear the case again later this year. Of course, if the travel ban was really only necessary for 90-120 days, then one would think that by the time the case is heard, it wouldn’t matter anymore anyway. There’s a lot of ways to look at the issue.

Congressmen Shooting Will Set Off Tons of Conspiracy Theories

When a gunman opened fire on an early morning Republican ball practice session today, we at Common Sense Conspiracy knew we’d be hearing about it real soon. Fortunately for all involved, it turns out that the gunman may not have actually claimed a life. While Steve Scalise was shot, he is stable, according to reports. Another staffer was also shot, but reports indicate that no one is in critical condition. That’s pretty amazing for a high-powered rifle-wielding man who unloaded apparently 30 rounds or more. So, we knew the conspiracy theories about this one would be all over the place, and so far, we are right.
While not much is known about the gunman at this point, there is going to be those that say this is politically motivated. What we do know is that the gunman is not someone of Middle Eastern descent, which is why you aren’t hearing the big T-word being thrown around. Assuming this guy turns out to be a Democrat, there are going to be those that say this is a political hate crime, if you can stomach that explanation. Chances are, that is exactly what it is. This fellow figured out that a lot of Republican Congress members would be gathered here with relatively little security and basically be sitting ducks if someone had the mind. However, while that explanation may be the most likely, that is not where it will stop.
Other explanations are inevitable. Some may say that it was an inside job. They will point to the fact that no one was killed as evidence. They will say that this was done by Republicans to try to take the heat off of all the things that are currently going on (i.e. the Russia investigation or Trump’s daily dose of chaos in and around the White House). They also might chalk this up as an NRA-led attempt to show that good guys with guns do win the day. Some reports say that the only reason this wasn’t a massacre is because someone there was armed and almost immediately fired back.
The real explanation is going to be hard for anyone to ascertain. If this is some sort of false flag operation from one side or the other, evidence will be scarce, and it’s always convenient when the shooter is killed in the aftermath because there will be no trial, interrogations, or eventual testimony. The powers-that-be can make this whatever they want it to be with the media, and that’s what they will do. That’s why it is good for us to speculate and examine this from other angles.
Stay tuned to Common Sense Conspiracy. We will continue to analyze this as new theories develop and more information is available.
