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.

Chester Bennington’s Wife Reveals Conspiracy About His Death on Twitter?

The speculation surrounding Chester Bennington, the lead singer of Linkin Park, is only increasing as more information has become available. Now, Chester’s ex-wife decided that this was a great time to confess to cheating on him with his best friend. She also made cryptic allusions to him already being dead before this and that he did not kill himself. Now, take this all with a grain of salt. We all know Twitter accounts are not that difficult to become hacked, and it’s entirely possible that is what we are seeing here. The Tweets have long been deleted, although we have a screenshot below harvested before they got around to taking them down. Whether these posts are authentic or not remains to be seen, but it certainly is throwing fuel on the conspiracy fire in the meantime.
Another part of it that is getting a lot of press is that Bennington chose to commit suicide on the birthday of Chris Cornell. He and Cornell were good friends, and Bennington even sang at Cornell’s funeral last month. Is this some sort of Illuminati symbolism or could it be that Bennington was so depressed about the loss of his friend that he decided to take his own life? What do you think? As we continue to monitor this developing story, we encourage debate in the comments below.

Linkin Park Singer Chester Bennington Dead at 41 — Illuminati’s Latest Victim?

We are already getting flooded with emails about this latest celebrity death. Chester Bennington, the lead singer of Linkin Park, is dead at the age of 41. And in a story that is all too familiar, it’s not ordinary, natural death, but yet another suicide by hanging. Remember Chris Cornell? Robin Williams? Well, now you can add Chester to that list. The theories in conspiracy circles are firing up, as you might expect. If you are typically skeptical of this sort of thing, you do have to stop and give them a little credit. These types of deaths are strange. Bennington was far from a has-been. Linkin Park just recently topped the charts with an album last year. They were a vibrant band that had been not as visible lately, but still a force in the music industry. And here, the same old story. Next, we’ll hear the authorities talk about drug addictions. His loved ones will talk about how he had not a problem in the world, was excited about his next vacation or tour, and this was completely unexpected. Meanwhile, the mainstream media will dig into his past and find ways to make him look like a ticking time bomb. That’s what they do.
Is this the latest Illuminati blood sacrifice? It’s way too soon to tell right now. But it is suspicious, and these theories, while theories is all they are, do bear looking into. Common Sense Conspiracy will continue to keep an eye on this story as more information becomes available. Below, we have posted a video of some of the typical suggestions we are getting from some of our readers. While they are short on evidence, for sure, they are interesting, and deserve to be heard out. The video also claims to be predicting this event, although we all know that it is easy to fake something like this after an event has happened. We encourage discussion on this in the comments below.

Was True Blood’s Nelsan Ellis an Illuminati Sacrifice?

We have to respond because we’ve had multiple questions about this incident.  There are people out there questioning the circumstances surrounding the death of Nelsan Ellis, a star of HBO’s True Blood television series.  The 39-year-old died of what is now being called complications to alcohol withdrawal.”  While we will grant that this is not the most straightforward cause of death we’ve ever been fed for a 39-year-old man that appeared to be in excellent physical condition, there are a few reasons why we at Common Sense Conspiracy would tend to think that this is not an Illuminati sacrifice situation.  First of all, even his immediate family are telling his story in a fair amount of detail.  They do not seem shocked or to be questioning his death, but wanting to use it as a message or inspiration to others that may be going through similar situations with themselves or people close to them.  You generally don’t see that kind of behavior from family when a death is controversial or suspicious.  Second, he doesn’t fit the profile of an Illuminati sacrifice.  These are powerful, influential people or people close to them.  They are people that almost anyone walking around would at least know something about.  While Ellis may be a great actor, and his part in the True Blood series was certainly beloved by its fans, he was not the kind of household name that one would generally connect to an Illuminati sacrifice.

So, it’s with these reasons that we don’t think there’s any fire to go with this smoke, at least not based on what we have found out at this time.  Below are some folks out there who think different.  We share it for those who want to hear the other side.  And because it’s kind of entertaining.  In any case, we will continue to watch this story, and if anything changes in our opinion, we will let you know.

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.

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.

Climate Change, Terror Attacks, and a Perpetual State of Fear

In little more than a week’s time, we have seen multiple events that have made a lot of eyebrows rise worldwide in conspiracy circles. For veterans to this scene, this explanation is probably not necessary (although you might still find it interesting or want to pile on if you have any more information that you think is helpful). However, the political climate among other things has a lot of people on edge, and that means that more people than ever before are turning to alternative news sources and opinions. This is an overwhelmingly great thing, and we are proud to have all newcomers. This is a primer for those that might wonder why so many people think what they think when things like this happen in our world.
It is drilled into our minds from almost infancy that our government and civic system is designed to keep us safe. Safety is one of the cornerstones of true control, and the government (all over the world) takes it very seriously. However, what if you are safe already? What if there isn’t a threat? Well, that doesn’t work out well for them, and that’s why it will never happen. So, many in conspiracy circles believe that if things are going okay in the world, the powers-that-be will work overtime to make sure that it doesn’t stay that way. That is where all of the drama about false flag operations and such originates.
Situations like the terror attacks in Britain are a great example. Are they false flag operations? Who knows? We at Common Sense Conspiracy certainly have no real evidence to present for or against. But the reason it gets tossed around is because these sorts of things are just bad enough to cause mass panic and hysteria, but not bad enough to encourage people to revolt. In other words, they want us to feel just unsafe enough that we believe the government is taking care of us. Does that mean that every major violent event in the world is a false flag operation? Absolutely not, and the CSC has repeatedly gone on the record questioning the validity of claims. As always, we like to see some evidence, preferably tangible, before we start putting theories forward. Too many people out there (we’re not saying any names) in our line of work don’t follow this rule, and they lead to the rest of us getting labelled as tin-foil hat wearers and conspiracy nuts. The reality is that there are false flag operations, and we know this. Deciphering real ones from unfounded speculation is a big part of what we do here.
Climate change is another topic that was big in the news this past week. President Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris accords was a major news story and led to a lot of doomsday predictions. Now, we’re not here to give you a full scientific rundown or climate change and the evidence for or against. All we are saying is that it’s like a game. Is climate change real? Sure. Look around. Is it caused by man? Sure, probably doesn’t help anything. But is Florida going to be underwater in 2030? Now that’s getting a little crazy with it. Is the United States going to be consumed by a fireball as temperatures spiral out of control? The doomsday prophecies of climate change are ironic because of this. Almost every ardent supporter of climate change is probably vehemently against Donald Trump. Yet, they use his style of negotiation. Shoot high and hope to get something in the middle. They preach doomsday hoping that maybe they will get people to change somewhere down the line. This is probably a pretty obvious strategy to most reasonable people. However, what you may not have considered is that they also want you to be afraid. Too much gets made out of the politics of it. The Democrats want you to be afraid that the Republicans will cause your Earth to be destroyed and all your grandchildren’s children to perish. The Republicans want you to believe that the Democrats are wasting your money on a bunch of bologna. The reality is that both sides like it. Or a better description would be that the real government likes it. Once again, it promotes fear. It also promotes division. Those two things are critical aspects at keeping people (where the real power lies) in check.
So, we hope as you peruse our articles here at Common Sense Conspiracy both today and in the future, you will remember this one that kind of gives you a primer for what you will see here. No matter how one-sided a lot of things might look at first glance, a lot of times if you look closer, you’ll see that all sides benefit, not just one or the other. That’s what we call the machine at work, and believe you me, it has been working overtime in our world this past week.
