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.

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.

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.

Illuminati Symbolism, Freemasons, and the August 21 Solar Eclipse — A Myriad of Theories But What is Real?

The solar eclipse event on August 21 of 2017 has sprouted some very fascinating conspiracy theories. Eclipses have fascinated humans for centuries, and this ultra-rare occasion is one of those kinds of celestial events where you can kind of understand how people were confused or even frightened. After all, it’s not that often that the sun literally goes dark in the middle of the daytime. Despite all of our wonderful scientific achievements over these past hundreds of years, there is still plenty of superstition involved when an event like this closes in. In this article, we will discuss some of the theories floating around and let you see some of the wilder videos out there that claim to provide real evidence. And then, at the end, we will tell you what we think is really going on.
It doesn’t matter which major cult-like entity you bring up from the shadows of the conspiracy world, they are probably represented here. Illuminati? Check. Freemasons? Check. Massive government cover-up? It’s all here my friend. The videos below will show you a crap-ton of symbolism that people have found that all points that something pretty amazing is going to happen on August 21. And we’re not talking about amazing in the astronomical rarity sense.
Intertwined in all of that occult symbolism stuff is our typical religious superstition. There are many Christian websites saying that August 21 has some sort of significance in the Bible and that this is at best, a signal of the beginning of the end, and at the worst, the end itself. Others are saying that the Rapture will occur on this date to coincide with the eclipse.
If all that’s not enough, there’s the doomsday theories. One enterprising site is pointing out that the path of another eclipse that will happen in seven years (we all know about that number seven, right) will cross the path of this one, forming a giant “X” across the United States. Does this mean a major catastrophe is in store for the good old red, white, and blue? Or is August 21 itself the day that the world’s most dominant superpower will begin to not exist anymore? Throw in possible calamities and the coming of the mystical planet Nibiru, and you can see that the theories are literally all over the place. We even have a video that ties Disney into it all.
Last but not least, we have people suggesting that the eclipse will make brooms stand on their own, as is always suggested at the solstices as well.
What does it all mean? What do we at Common Sense Conspiracy think is going to happen on August 21, 2017? Well, everyone that visits here often should know that far be it from us to rain on a good conspiracy theory parade, but the reality is that there just isn’t anything to see here folks. Eclipses seem strange and fantastical to us humans riding on planet Earth, but the truth is it is just a very coincidental thing in the cosmos. Something that is inevitably going to happen, and it doesn’t really mean anything in particular. What is going to happen? An eclipse. If you are in the path, the sun will almost be completely blocked from sight. It will get dark in the middle of the day. It will be weird. Strange. But occult? No, probably not.
Basically, if there is a huge calamity that day or if the Rapture happens against all odds, the real coincidence is that it happened at the same time as the eclipse, and not because of it. That may not be as fun and it may not be nearly as successful click-bait on our site here, but that is our official opinion.
The biggest thing you have to fear on August 21, 2017 is that your glasses you bought on Amazon weren’t really good enough to withstand gazing at a solar eclipse. Be afraid. Be very afraid.



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.

Donald Trump Reveals How the Establishment Reacts to an Outsider

Like our very bodies when a foreign object is inside our bodies, the establishment of American government is attacking the outsider with everything they have.  There are no rules.  No party lines.  No arm-twisting, knowing winks, and backroom deals.  This is all-out war.  We at Common Sense Conspiracy have wrestled with the idea of whether Donald Trump was a true outsider, or just another example of the shadow government making us think we had a choice.  The last few weeks have convinced us that, love him or hate him, Trump is really an outsider.  And for that, his days are numbered.

This not meant to be some sort of excuse for Trump.  Trump’s Twitter ramblings are embarrassing, his over-the-top rhetoric stomach-turning at times, and he definitely has shown that he didn’t have as many plans as he boasted about on the campaign trail.  Having said that, the calls for his impeachment in the mounting pile of non-evidence is astounding.

If Trump was Mike Pence, the Republican Party would be circling around him and defending him to the max.  That’s because Pence is a full-fledged member of the establishment.  In America, there is a political hierarchy, albeit an unofficial one.  Politicians are loyal to their party, but the establishment comes first.  And the establishment blurs all political lines.  At the establishment level, Republicans want Trump gone as much as Democrats do.  Why?  He is a threat to their very existence.  He is a threat to the stranglehold that the shadow government has on the American people and the slow-developing plan they have for America’s future.

Now does this mean that Trump is some kind of hero?  No, not at all.  In fact, whether you like him or not, you have to admit that this is probably going to end badly, and when all is said and done, he probably would have been a lot happier and safer if he had just remained a really rich celebrity enjoying life to the fullest.  Remember that a little over 18 months ago, the same people lambasting him would have crapped in their pants to get invited to one of this parties.  There was nothing wrong with Donald Trump until he decided to come onto their turf.  The penalty for that will be quite harsh indeed.

Will they impeach him?  People will toss this around, but the truth is that they aren’t going to stop.  They have already proven that evidence does not matter.  They don’t care.  They will find something he said and they will present it in such a way to get what they want.  Democrats will fight tooth and nail to make Mike Pence their President.  Because he is not a threat.  He is just another member of the establishment, and while they will oppose him publicly, behind the scenes they will pat each other on the back and make plans for the future.

Trump is fighting the worst situation a President has ever faced.  To have both your own party and the enemy both salivating for your head on a platter in the cutthroat world of Washington politics makes it pretty hard to survive.  Remember, no evidence is needed.  They can impeach Trump on principle if they want to.  Those Republicans that supported Trump will turn on him.  This is not necessarily because they want to or not, but because they must lest the establishment machine chew them up and spit them out as well.

Trump may not have been your dream candidate, but he did prove that an outsider can waltz into this thing.  And now that the establishment has been made aware of this hole in their security, you can bet they will make sure it never happens again.  The New World Order hung in the balance for a second there, but don’t worry globalists.  The American shadow government is going to do everything it can to force Trump out.  And if that doesn’t work, well, we all know what comes next.
