George Michael Was Predicted to Be the Victim of an Illuminati Blood Sacrifice in 2014

The death of George Michael floored many on Christmas Day 2016. We addressed the likelihood that there is more to the story in previous articles as the news broke, but we are publishing this article to go forward with something even more suspicious. The video below shows a YouTube user that completely predicted this event in 2014. The user ZippythePinhead J in just 38 seconds revealed that George Michael would die “soon” and would be the victim of an Illuminati blood sacrifice.

It would be crazy, no doubt, except for the fact that he was exactly right.

The Government’s War on Fake News is a War on You

They are laying it on pretty thick.  In the wake of Donald Trump’s unlikely Presidential victory, the opposing party is pulling out all the stops to try to discredit his election win and explain it away.  Now, Common Sense Conspiracy is not a political site, and we have frequently explained our one-party two-party system theory about the American government.  However, in a case like this, it’s important for our readers to realize that while it looks like partisan politics playing out in a high stakes game, the loser and target is always you and I.  This situation is no exception.

The new battle cry against fake news seems like a turning point.  We all see the conservative and liberal versions of extremist news sources on our social media feeds and in our email.  It’s true that both sides are “liberal” with the facts, and in many cases, it is just spreading incorrect propaganda to forward an agenda.  However, when President Obama and company say they are going after “fake news” that is not what they mean.  Fake news to them is anything that directly takes on their narrative.  Fake news, according to the likes of Obama and Hillary Clinton, would be sites like this one.  Any site that doesn’t go along with their absurd official story and tries to inject facts into the equation will qualify as fake news in a heartbeat.

That’s what is so sinister about what they are doing here.  It’s calculated.  It may seem like it’s about Trump, or just sour grapes from sore losers of a hotly contested election.  But it’s just the beginning.  They will start by targeting the extreme news sources we referenced earlier, but soon, they will expand it out to include sites like this and any other site out there that is presenting a fact-based approach to their disinformation campaigns.

You have to look at what the other hand is doing.  It’s like a sleight-of-hand trick they are playing right in your face.  They make you think one thing, and it is a reasonable one that makes a lot of sense.  Meanwhile, the other hand is up to something much more sinister.  The only thing you can always count on in their schemes is that the loser is always going to be you.

Fake news is bad.  But the biggest proponent of fake news in America is the mainstream media.  That alone should prove that their intentions are less than honorable.

Hillary Clinton’s Popular Vote Lead Doesn’t Really Mean What You Think It Means

A lot is being made of the results of the 2016 Presidential Election.  Donald Trump won in the all-important Electoral College with a bit of room to spare, but it appears that Hillary Clinton will sit on top of the popular vote in the nation when all is said and done.  It is not significant in that it won’t alter the results of the election, but it is significant in what it means:  more people voted for Hillary Clinton than voted for Donald Trump.

This has happened before, and not all that long ago.  Remember Bush and Gore?  That was a very controversial election result as well, and the same thing happened to the Democrats there.  Gore had more votes nationally, but not in the right places.  Now, there is a raging debate over whether the Electoral College even makes sense or whether it is antiquated, but that’s not what we are discussing in this article.  We at Common Sense Conspiracy are looking to defuse some of the claims surrounding the popular vote total and what proponents of Clinton are trying to do with it.

The popular vote is interesting.  It is important as we said above.  But you can’t take the popular vote and make it applicable and have any real gauge on what the American people thought.  Yes, even if the Electoral College defects based on the popular vote excuse and decides to hand the presidency to Hillary Clinton, they are using faulty logic.  Here’s the thing.  The election played out by the rules in place at the time.  The popular vote is interesting to look at, but the reality is that if the popular vote had the weight of the Electoral College, the entire campaign would have played out differently.

If the popular vote was the way this was done, both candidates would have campaigned from completely different viewpoints.  For one thing, neither candidate would have been concerned with sparsely populated states at all (which is the whole purpose of the college to begin with) because whichever one dominated a handful of big cities would win easily.  Also, how many people that didn’t vote would have turned out in a popular vote situation?  Many, many people don’t vote for President because they know which way their state is going to go.  Alabama is a great example of this.  Trump won by huge numbers there, and the Republican candidate has for years.  Anyone who wanted Trump to win could stay home and it would still happen.  Anyone who wanted Hillary to win could stay home and it still wasn’t going to happen.  If the popular vote were decisive, many more people in that state would have probably got out to vote, and not necessarily just for one side or the other.

Can a good, solid argument be made that we should use the popular vote as our means of picking our leaders rather than the Electoral College system?  Absolutely, and we at Common Sense Conspiracy have routinely advocated for just that over the years.  However, until such a system is in place, the popular vote doesn’t give you an overarching view of which candidate would have won if that system were in place at the time of the election.  It could mean that Hillary gets millions more votes.  It could mean that Donald does too and the election is even closer than it was.  It could even mean that people in rural areas stop voting because they now feel like their vote doesn’t count.  Until such a system is in place, and all of the new strategies that would therefore adapt to it come into existence, we simply can’t read anything into a popular vote result, especially one as close as this one.

Trump Wins! What Does It Mean in Conspiracy Circles? Is There a New New World Order?

Donald Trump’s winning of the election is incredible for a variety of reasons.  Never has a candidate had so many cards stacked against him.  Never has a candidate felt the full wrath of the shadow government’s full machine.  They threw everything but the kitchen sink at Trump, and when all was said and done, he was still standing.

trump-prezMany Americans are afraid of what Trump might mean for the country.  These fears may not be misplaced.  He is a wild card.  No one is totally sure just what a Trump presidency will look like.  What we do know is that this appears to be a watershed moment in our world.  Trump may or may not be the right guy, but his victory proves that while the New World Order that is trying to organize itself is very powerful indeed, there is still power in the people themselves.  That was proven on Election Day once and for all.  All the rigging in the world can’t overcome the power of awakened individuals going out and letting their voices be heard.  That is inspiring.  Democracy is not totally dead, even if it is being handed its hat.

Having said all of that, we move on to the real topic here.  What does this mean in conspiracy circles?  Well, Trump’s win ends some conspiracy theories once and for all.  The Clinton-Bush dynasty conspiracies are over.  Both President Obama and now President-Elect Trump effectively ended these two families’ stronghold on American power and politics that has lasted decades.  While we probably haven’t heard the last of the Bush’s and Clinton’s, we’ve definitely heard the last of them for a little while.  Another popular conspiracy theory was that Donald Trump was in some sort of collusion with Hillary Clinton to secure the presidency.  His unlikely victory confirms that there was no such collusion.  Donald Trump ran for President and won.  That’s all there is to it.  No more theories for now.

For the conspiracy theories closed, new ones will open.  Many will wonder if Donald Trump will cooperate with the shadow government.  Everything about his campaign and personality indicates that he will not if it doesn’t suit his agenda.  We all know what will happen if he bucks the system too much.  There will be many, many conspiracy theories in 2017 about the possibility of a massive government conspiracy to assassinate Donald Trump.  As Inauguration Day approaches, it’ll get clearer what these theories will be.  For now, we can only speculate.

There was a narrative in the mainstream media that Trump will declare himself dictator and take over America.  This could be called a conspiracy theory, we suppose, but we don’t really claim it.  No reputable conspiracy theory site that we know of saw Trump as anything but an outsider insurgent candidate that drew the ire of the establishment.  The theories involving him becoming a Hitler-like figure are not so much conspiracy theories as just tactics of his political opponents.

In that same vein, many will bring up concepts about Trump’s supposed racist, sexist, and anti-LGBT qualities.  Some have already suggested that being homosexual will be banned in the United States, a la Russia.  Others say Trump will reverse gay marriage, end abortion, and ban Muslims.  There is little or no evidence that any of these things would be on a Trump agenda.  Most of his commentary on such subjects was manipulated horribly by the government’s media machine, and on a political level, one must remember that Trump is historically quite liberal in his views.  In some ways, he is just as liberal as Hillary Clinton.  It is unlikely that he would do any of these things, and once again, these are not conspiracy theories as much as just ways for his political enemies to assail him.  That strategy appeared to be working like a charm until about 10:00 PM on Election evening when it suddenly became clear that Trump might be the one to beat.

These are just some of the conspiracy concepts that you will see rise to the surface as 2017 approaches.  We saved the biggest one for last, but it is too important and expansive to be covered here.  The last theory is that Trump will never become President because the Electoral College will do the unthinkable and be the last battalion of the establishment against an insurgent candidate.  We will analyze that fully in the next article.

Thanks to all our readers for enduring this crazy election and all of the crazy situations we are obligated to analyze and investigate.  We look forward to having a wider variety of articles four our readers going forward as this fades and new challenges arise.

Shadow Government Puppet Masters Pull Strings on Final Days of 2016 Election

A lot of people (especially in the government and mainstream media) are pointing to the FBI’s sudden announcement of the discovery of thousands more of Hillary Clinton-related emails as an example that the election is most certainly not rigged (as Trump and plenty of conspiracy theorists for decades have suggested).  After all, if the election were rigged for Hillary, why on Earth would she allow such a thing to happen?  Well, to understand it, you have to look a little deeper, a little further out, and see the big picture.

It is clear that the shadow government, be it Bilderberg or whatever name you want to put on it, has already chosen Hillary Clinton to be the next President of the United States.  This has probably been decided for many years.  As a matter of fact, many in conspiracy circles believe that she was supposed to win the 2008 election but was usurped by Obama, whom the shadow government ultimately decided to go with because he was more charismatic and divisive to the American people than the candidate they had originally envisioned.  She was put on the backburner with promises of the Secretary of State job in her ear, and an even bigger promise that all things remaining equal, she would be the President easily in 2016.

Well, 2016 is here folks, and there was another intruder.  This one was Donald Trump, but unlike Obama, he did not attract any love from the shadow government.  He is a true outsider, and someone they are deathly afraid of.  They believe he might truly unravel a portion of the stranglehold they have on power in America.  They fear a movement like he and Bernie Sanders (despite seeming worlds apart) are actually both headliners of.  It’s the first throes of an American revolution in which the awakened people (a group that is getting bigger each and every day thanks to the Internet and alternative news sources) are having no more of it.

The shadow government is still firmly in control.  Despite surprising them, Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders for that matter have no realistic shot at the Presidency.  But the elite don’t take chances, and we are seeing masters of manipulation in play here.  Think about it.  This sudden announcement of the FBI investigation looked so bad for Hillary and so good for Trump.  But if you look at the firestorm of things we’ve learned this week that the media completely ignored while beating the email server drum 24/7, you see what they did again.

See, the WikiLeaks revelations are about a million times more damning than the email server allegations.  We are talking major corruption, major crimes, and millions of dollars changing hands.  We are talking events that literally shape the world here over money and power.  The Clinton Foundation revelations are so far-reaching that they are even grabbing Chelsea Clinton in their wake.  It appears that the entire Clinton family is up to their neck in this one.

No one noticed.  No one cared.  The Donald Trump supporters were gleeful when the FBI announcement hit.  It’s over, they thought.  We got this.  They bit on the line that was put out for them like a fish in a lake.  It is over.  But they are the ones that got you.  You fell for it.

Now, the FBI has announced again that no criminal charges will be pursued against Hillary Clinton in this one investigation (ignoring the multiple investigations still ongoing) on literally the day before the polls open.  Now, that great news that the Trump people were so excited about is turning on a dime.  The most ironic thing about it of all:  the same Democrats that were outraged about how Trump insinuated that the election might be rigged are now claiming… you guessed it… that the FBI announcement was an attempt to rig the election.  Everything comes and goes, you see.  They all tell you the same old tired lines.

This is not a struggle between Democrats and Republicans.  The Republican establishment is just as terrified of Trump as the Democrats are.  More, even, because they couldn’t do anything about it.  A myriad of voters put an outsider at the very top of the Republican Party.  Others like them were all set to do the same to Hillary Clinton, but the Democratic Party’s primary was set up from the beginning to make sure it could not be usurped.  Bernie put up the good fight, but was never really on the  ballot so-to-speak.  The Republicans apparently never considered something like Trump, and so they did not have the proper safeguards in place to screw him out of it.  It wasn’t rigged enough to stop Trump in the primaries, so they had to really pull out all the stops to stop him in the general election.

The puppets are dancing, just like they are supposed to do.  On this final day, you will hear over and over how the email scandal is finished now, and how terrible it was that they announced it in the first place, damaging poor little innocent Hillary Clinton’s chances at winning this election and putting the entire world in mortal jeopardy by giving Trump a chance.  That will be the narrative while the worst case of corruption ever seen in American government is right there for anyone to view.

How ironic it is?  Never before have Americans had so much information at their fingertips to make an informed decision.  And never will it be so ignored.

Can a President Hillary Clinton Pardon Herself?

Well, even though the FBI has once again said that it will not pursue charges against Hillary Clinton over the infamous email scandal, there is no shortage of investigations still going on.  There is plenty of noise being made surrounding the Clinton Foundation’s shady dealings, and WikiLeaks is still threatening to drop even more bombshells in the one final remaining day before the election.  So, it seems probably that Hillary Clinton will probably pull this thing out and be the President-Elect come Wednesday morning.  But how does that work with an FBI investigation and at least some potential for a criminal indictment in the works?

Don't worry. I got you.
Don’t worry. I got you.

Well, as you probably know, one of the greatest and most sweeping powers of the office of President in the United States is the ability to pardon.  A President has never pardoned himself, but it is not clear that this is necessarily impossible.  Constitutional experts have been weighing in saying that a President Hillary Clinton could indeed pardon herself.  Also, the outgoing President Obama could pardon her.  But is either likely?  Let’s look at it in more detail.

For President Obama, it could be a sticky situation.  If Hillary were indicted before she took over the office in January, he could pardon her, but that would mean tarnishing his own legacy because it would no doubt be one of the most historical and controversial pardons of all time.  He would forever be remembered for pardoning the President-Elect so she could be President.  He might do it anyway for the sake of the country’s power structure.  Or he might give Hillary the final middle finger.  After all, it’s no secret that President Obama and Hillary Clinton are not BFF’s.  Their primary battle in 2008 was bloody, and many believe that Obama is only actively campaigning on her behalf because of the fear of a President Trump more than really supporting her candidacy.  If she wins the election outright and Trump is officially out of the picture, Obama may decide to leave her on her own with a potential indictment.

If Hillary Clinton were indicted after becoming President, it would be more interesting.  She could pardon herself, yes.  It would be controversial to a degree like nothing we’ve ever seen before, and would definitely have an authoritarian flare to it.  But she could do it, and it would most likely stand.  It’s possible that Republicans may challenge it and the Supreme Court might have to eventually rule on whether it is legal for someone to pardon themselves of a crime.  However, that would be the Supreme Court populated with at least one more Hillary Clinton-appointee.  Basically, at this point, we would see the kind of massive government corruption that would dwarf what we have seen so far, and that is saying a lot.

A pardon by Obama or by herself would save Hillary from the criminal part of the charge and prevent her from ever being convicted and possibly going to prison.  What it cannot do is stop her from being impeached.  The Congress has that authority, and not even a Presidential pardon stops the possibility of impeachment proceedings.  So, even if she was pardoned, she would almost definitely find herself facing the charges in Congress.  That is, unless Democrats controlled the House and Senate, in which case they would not bring charges, or would bring them only to end it once and for all.  However, it is not expected that Democrats will take the Presidency and both houses.  At best, Hillary might win and find a Democratic Senate to work with, but the House is most likely safe for Republicans for two more years.  This means that if criminal charges were brought against Hillary, you can bet your last dime impeachment proceedings will at least be brought forward.  Whether enough support (or evidence) would exist to actually make that happen remains to be seen.  It is all speculation at this point.

Now, if Donald Trump pulled a miracle and beat Hillary outright on Election Day, President Obama would almost definitely pardon Hillary.  This is because Trump with a Republican-controlled House would certainly be able to pursue charges against Clinton with that kind of influence, so Obama would pardon her (with chagrin for what it means for his own legacy) because at the end of the day, these guys are gonna stick up for each other.  Obama might not like Hillary, but he’s not going to stand by and let her go to prison.  Remember, there’s probably quite a few things Hillary Clinton knows about the Obama administration, so he would definitely be in a corner on that deal.

Ironically, it would appear looking at the facts that Hillary Clinton would almost certainly be pardoned any way it goes.  Hmm, how does that make you feel about the fairness of our justice system, Americans?

Why the Concept That People That Do Not Vote Have No Voice is Absurd and Stupid

I heard it on the radio just today as I was going to work.  A couple of jocks were venturing into the realm of politics on their radio talk show, and they started addressing the field of candidates currently in the United States’ presidential race for 2016.  They were talking vote-for-nobodyabout the decline of religion’s influence over politics, and one quoted a statistic that some 30 million evangelical Americans didn’t take part in the 2012 election.  Then, one of the hosts made a comment that I have heard hundreds of times, especially in election years.  He said that anyone that doesn’t get out and vote has absolutely no right to complain about anything.

It’s a statement that people make without even really thinking about it.  With all the “Rock the Vote” campaigns where uber-popular and cool celebrities try to encourage people to do their “civic duty” and vote, we have created a culture where to conscientiously object to the process is considered to be almost a crime.  They try to paint the picture that if you don’t vote in an election when you are eligible to do so, it means that all of those valiant soldiers that died for your freedom are being dissed by you and your laziness.  It means that you either don’t care and your just the kind of person that likes to complain without wanting to do your part.  They brainwash people into thinking that way, and it works.  The truth is that people that don’t vote, if they do it for the right reasons, have every right to complain.

Yes, some people just don’t care.  And if you just are apolitical and could not care less about any of it and you don’t vote, perhaps you can make the argument that you don’t really have a right to complain about the government.  However, if you really are one of those people that simply isn’t interested, chances are you weren’t doing a whole lot of complaining anyway.  It’s the other group, those that would love to vote if they were given a system and a candidate that they could attach their “civic duty” to and come away feeling good about it.  American politics has become so watered down by corruption and the ever-warring but ever-colluding two-party political system that every election now consists of nothing but people going to the polls to cast their vote for the lesser of two evils. evil If there is an independent candidate, they can vote for them, but everyone knows that is like not voting at all because our system is wired so that there is no chance for them to win.  You don’t vote for the candidate you believe in.  You vote for the candidate that you think is likely to do the least amount of damage to the country in the next four years.

As we gear up for 2016, there is absolutely nothing looking different.  Hillary Clinton is plagued in scandal, and almost no one in America on either side of the political aisle can really say they trust her as far as they can throw her.  If Vice President Joe Biden gets in the race, everyone regards that as just Obama Part III.  The guy behind Hillary, Bernie Sanders, is making a big splash, but he’s just employing a tried-and-true political tactic that seems new because the last couple of elections have all been about wars and “hope and change.”  Bernie is kicking it old school by simply making a bunch of absurd promises that he cannot keep and in fact has no intention of attempting to keep.  Bernie Sanders knows that the minimum wage is never going to be increased to $15 per hour, especially with a Republican-controlled Congress.  Free public college sounds great, but it’ll never pass, and there’s not money to pay for it.  Even if there is, it’s a real bum deal for millions of Americans swimming in student loan debt that did have to pay for their college education (or are still paying, as it were).  The reality is that Bernie Sanders is saying a lot of pretty things to get a lot of naive people to jump on his bandwagon.  It works, and it is working for him.

That was a quick look at the Democratic side.  The Republican side is even more troubling, regardless of how you feel about the general politics of it.  Donald Trump has somehow risen to the top of one of the biggest fields of candidates ever, a sure sign that America is just so tired of career politicians that almost anyone that is not seems like a viable option.  After Trump, you have Jeb Bush, a guy whose name alone is enough to make people shudder.  After that, you have a strange crew of candidates that aren’t particularly good speakers, don’t really have any direction to their ideas, and mostly just try to appeal to Bible thumpers by trying to convince everyone that they are being persecuted and discriminated against.  That’s an interesting strategy for Republicans to take with their base, as they borrowed it directly from the Democrats who have made their living in politics convincing people they were being done wrong for generations.  These are our options.  Why would anyone want to vote?

Yes, voting is a sacred part of America’s supposed tradition of freedom and democracy.  But what does it mean when the system is just setting you up for more disappointment.  Just look at President Barack Obama.  He is a great example.  He was a breath of fresh air when he came on the national scene, and even diehard Republicans couldn’t help but be a little inspired by him.  Then, he won the election, and as soon as he was inaugurated, it was clear that he was just more of the same, albeit with a little darker skin tone.  People that voted for Obama still don’t seem to grasp that for his first four years, he mostly continued the policies of George W. Bush, just putting it different in speeches and having the sympathy of the American people for having inherited such a mess, so much in fact that the American people gave him a half-a-decade pass for doing almost nothing about it.

So, that old phrase that if you don’t vote, shut your mouth needs to be permanently retired.  It’s absurd.  Maybe if more people didn’t vote, we might put the system in a position where it had to change because it became so apparent that it no longer represented anything even resembling the will of the people.  What if no one voted at all?  Would they assume the responsibility of selecting the President themselves?  And why on Earth do we need an electoral college system in an era where the Internet makes it possible for each and every person’s voice and vote to be heard?  Yet we rely on an archaic system that was designed to make sure that if Americans ever picked someone a little too far out of the normal political spectrum to get behind, Congress can still use the electoral college to veto it and stop the system from getting away from them.

I have a right not to vote.  It’s not because I’m lazy, uninformed, or don’t care.  It’s because I do care.  Just like when you sign your name to something, or put your good name down on a credit application, I believe that when you cast that vote, you take some responsibility for that person and what they do going forward.  People that voted for George W. Bush, especially the second time, deserve a little blame for how that went down.  People that voted for President Obama deserve the blame or credit as it were.  In so many states, the two-party system has it so perfectly divided that if you aren’t voting for the winning side, your vote really doesn’t count.  People aren’t stupid; they know this.

Not voting is voting, in a manner of speaking.  It’s voting against a corrupt system that doesn’t serve the people any longer, if it ever did to begin with, and it needs to be changed so that it does.  Until then, people that don’t vote because they don’t see someone to vote for and someone to attach their name to have every right to complain about whatever they like, because it’s the other guys casting their votes that are keeping that system intact and making people believe that it still works despite a preponderance of evidence telling us otherwise.
