No the Illuminati Did Not Kill Anthony Bourdain

Celebrity chef and star of Parts Unknown Anthony Bourdain was found dead in what seems to be a suicide today. He was 61, and successful and popular. That means people are going to try to find something suspicious about his death. The reality is that this is probably exactly what it appears to be.

The Illuminati reaches out to people with world-changing influence. Bourdain may be a celebrity and well-known, but he certainly doesn’t have the epic kind of reach of a Beyonce Knowles or someone of that caliber. I guess the bottom line is that we are saying that the Illuminati would consider someone like Bourdain small potatoes and would be very unlikely to have any involvement with him at all, especially in his death. It simply would not benefit their cause.

We will keep an eye on this situation as more information becomes available, but we cannot imagine our opinion changing on this one.

YANNIE VS LAUREL — AUDIOPHILES TAKE OVER INTERNET

The debate is on and it is raging all across the Internet and all forms of social media. We’re talking Instagram, Twitter, Reddit, message boards, Facebook, you name it. Everyone wants to talk about what everyone thought was obvious. Is the audio clip saying Yannie or Laurel? We at Common Sense Conspiracy have a more pressing question. Who the hell cares?
Much like dresses and shoes in the past, this current fad is like the audio version of those Internet sensations. Basically, everyone has a different mind with different perception built into it, and this causes your mind to either construct Yannie or Laurel out of what you hear in this weird audio clip. In case you were wondering, the clip is from an online vocabulary site that pronounces words to help with learning. That’s how all of this got started because a youngster was studying and people in the same room heard different things at the same time, prompting him to investigate further and start a full-on viral Internet assault.
Audiophiles are now coming out in force to shed light on the mystery. We have people talking about decibels and frequency readings and all sorts of manipulations usually left to music studios in an attempt to explain the mystery. The thing is, there is no mystery, no conspiracy. People hear different things. Everyone has completely destroyed some song lyrics while the person next to him heard it crystal clear as intended. It’s not that crazy and it’s not that unusual. It does, however, make a lot of money in ad revenue for someone out there.

The following videos outline some stabs at conspiracy theories here that we have been pointed toward. Obviously, we don’t give them a lot of cred, but it’s fun nonetheless.

The real question here is not what you hear, but how do you spell it? Yannie? Yanni? Yanny? Now there’s something we can sink our teeth into.

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.

Is the Met Gala An Illuminati Celebration?

The Met Gala event each year is invite-only, secretive about what goes on after the red carpet, and features only the most powerful of the elite. That is why it should come as no surprise that it is often regarded as a breeding ground for the Illuminati. So many A-lister actors and otherwise famous, powerful people are guaranteed to be present that this kind of speculation is unavoidable. The video below features one such explanation. This fellow goes into painstaking detail about how each photo of various celebrities reveals something.
Is the Met Gala really an Illuminati celebration? We don’t know, but the mystery and security they build around the event certainly adds to the intrigue. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.

Hawaii’s Kilauea Volcano Erupting — Lava in Paradise Causing All Sorts of Theories

One thing we’ve learned over the years here at Common Sense Conspiracy is that even natural disasters are not immune from theories all across the spectrum.  The volcano eruptions in Hawaii that are sending lava spewing over streets and even homes are a great example.  Remember, Common Sense Conspiracy isn’t about reporting the news.  Many people are in a time of crisis right now because of these terrible events, but there are plenty of opportunities for you to read or watch videos of what happened.  We are talking about conspiracy theories here, so get ready.

The most prevalent theories we are getting inquiries about relate to one of two topics.  One is the ever-present “Illuminati knew it was going to happen” theory.  The other is related to whether this is somehow related to man-made somehow.  Neither theory has a lot of evidence to back it up, but nonetheless check out the videos below if you want to see what these cats are trying to suggest.  What do you think?  Natural disaster or more to the story?

 

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.
