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.

Is the Assassination of Russian Ambassador to Turkey This Generation’s Archduke Ferdinand Moment?

Today, the Russian ambassador to Turkey, Andrei Karlov, was sinisterly assassinated in a very public way.  The gunman, now killed by police, left absolutely no doubt as to what his motivation for the killing was.  Could this be the moment that so many in conspiracy circles have waited for, hoping against hope that it would never come?

The climate between Turkey and Russia wasn’t all that great.  There is much turmoil over there gigantic, gaping disagreement about what is happening with Syria.  While their relationship had warmed slightly in recent months, overall it’s not a very friendly one, so it is obvious that world events dictate that a seemingly small event could set off a set of dominoes leading to a World War 3 situation.  Don’t think so?  Time for a history lesson.

Archduke Ferdinand is the guy that got assassinated and it literally set the entire world into the first World War.  He was the Archduke in Austria.  Flashing forward to our time, it is hard to believe how that could start an international conflict that would claim millions of lives.  But just look at Syria and the Middle East.  Look at ISIS and the power vacuum.  Look at Russia’s increasing aggressiveness in the last couple of years.  And look at the arrival of a President Donald Trump on the scene in a few weeks.  If ever there was the possibility of this generation having a Ferdinand moment, this certainly seems like it could be it.

On the naysayer side, there will be those that say the world has changed since 1914, and something like this isn’t enough to start this kind of explosion that almost guarantees a mutually-assured self destruction conflict.  Yet, those same people would have told you the same back then when the world declared that World War 1 was the “war to end all wars” and it would never happen on that scale again.  It wouldn’t even take that long for it to happen again.  They couldn’t have been more wrong.

Anyone that knows anything will tell you that a World War 3 scenario is inevitable.  We all just hope that it is many years from now, but it would be foolish to think that it cannot or will not happen again.

Having said all of that, Common Sense Conspiracy wants to remind our readers that events like this happen from time to time, and more often than not, they do not spark international conflicts.  It is perfectly possible that Russia and Turkey realize this is an isolated conflict and don’t let it turn into an arms race of epic proportions.  But Vladimir Putin is not known for that sort of standoffish behavior.  It may very well depend a lot on how Turkey reacts, and whether their reaction satisfies Putin to the point that he doesn’t push the issue.  Also, there is also the wild card of what an incoming President Trump might say or do in such an incendiary situation.  It’s a crazy time to be alive , people.

What do you think?  Is this the shot that will be heard and felt around the world?  Or just an unfortunate incident that civilized nations will work around?

The Holiday Conspiracy — Retailers Move to Take Away Little Family Time Left in America

EDITOR’S NOTE:  This article originally appeared around this time last year.  This year, the situation is escalating even further, with retailers opening up even earlier.  Because this article is truer than ever, we are temporarily placing it on our front page so that more people may be exposed to it.  Thanks for reading.

 

In the last degradation to the family unit in America, retailers across the nation are moving farther and farther into what was once a dead zone in the holiday season — the holiday itself.  In recent years, Black Friday had already taken itself to the very limits, with many retailers opting to open at midnight with exceptional deals to attract early shoppers.  This year, Black Friday is as good as Black Thanksgiving Day, with major retailers like Target and Walmart now opening their doors at 8:00 P.M. on the holiday itself.  Some consumers are excited, glad for more chances at deals and hoping that their odds might be enhanced by less competition if some people don’t know about the early openings or choose to (gasp!) stay with their families instead of invading the local Target.  Others think that this is going too far and that retailers are undermining a special time for families in an age when these special times are so few and far between.

A nice family Thanksgiving scene in America.

Our 24/7 society already requires mothers and fathers to be away from their families at all hours of the day to make a living.  Now, the handful of days that were still sacred are being violated as well.  A lot of people out there that are excited about shopping at 8:00 P.M. on Thanksgiving Day don’t take into consideration that there are many more people affected by it.  Those stores expect huge throngs of shoppers, which means they will have to require many employees of their companies to be there to deal with the deluge.  While it might be exciting to some to head out at 7:00 P.M. to stand in line with family and friends and try to catch a killer deal, how exciting is it for the retail workers that have to leave their families at what for many is prime-time Turkey-time to get to their posts.  Some retail associates wonder what the point of even closing on Thanksgiving is if they know they have to be at work that evening in the middle of the festivities.  And some people say “Oh, well it’s 8:00 P.M.  Most people are just sitting on the couch in a coma after their meals.”  Well, that too is a misunderstanding of the way these establishments work.  Employees can’t simply show up at 8:00 P.M.  They will have to be their at least a couple of hours in advance to do their normal opening procedures, prepare displays, and rebuild their stores that were probably massacred in the pre-Thanksgiving rush before they closed.  Then, there’s controlling the crowds, determining how to handle the other conspiracy of Black Friday, where not everyone will get the deal they stood in line for, and providing security for shoppers on a mission that sometimes resort to less-than-civil means to get that special deal they had their eyes on.  You see, there’s so much more that goes into it than simply opening the doors so shoppers can get a good deal and retailers can make a quick buck.

But why?  Why do retailers move the times up?  Why not stick with five in the morning?  Why move it to midnight?  Why 8:00 P.M. now on Thanksgiving evening?  The answer is simple, and you have complete control over it.  They do it because people will come.  People will come in throngs, eager for a chance at a good deal, and with little regard for the fact that their very attendance is basically a vote for what the retailers chose to do.  When you go to your local Target at 8:00 P.M. on Thanksgiving, remember that you are the reason they did this.  You are the reason those employees had to leave their families and be at work at that very moment.  To take care of you, because they knew you would come.  You will do whatever it takes, and competition drives the retail industry.  If Target wants to open that early, then other retailers will do the same because they feel they have no choice to keep a competitive advantage.  And then, slowly, over years, it just becomes normal.  Five years from now, you can bet your last buck that retailers will probably be opening up at 6:00 A.M. on Thanksgiving Day and staying open all day.  Why?  Because they know if they open the door, they will have store full of eager shoppers, many of which who will buy things that are not that great of a deal while they are in there saving fictional hundreds on things like televisions that in all reality are just being sold at cost to get you to come in the door.

The real conspirator here is American consumers.  Do you want to be a part of the retailer’s evil plan?  No, you say.

Then don’t show up.  It wouldn’t take them long to get the message.

It is Now Politically Correct to Hope the President Gets Assassinated — Democrats Save Champagne

To say that Donald Trump winning the 2016 election is controversial would be a huge (as Donald likes to say) understatement.  The country was divided under eight years of Barack Obama like it had not been in decades, but still it lacks in comparison to the climate in the country the week after November 8, 2016.  Riots are breaking out.  Protesters are in the streets outraged about the results of a free election.  There is paranoia and hysteria, and even the people on the winning side (the Republicans) are wary of their unexpected new leader.  But just how far has it gone?

Common Sense Conspiracy wants to show you some screen captures of Hillary Clinton loyalists very nonchalantly talking about the assassination of the soon-to-be President Trump.  One even says that the champagne purchased to toast the first female president will now be saved for when someone takes The Donald out.

These are amazing statements, and really show how well the shadow government and mainstream media have divided this country.  In the worst of times, Americans still respected the office of President.  Now, we actually scoff at it and sit around the fire talking about how nice it will be when the President gets his head blown off.  Wow, what a change.

We’re not really taking sides here politically, but can you imagine what it would be like if anyone had nonchalantly made such statements about Barack Obama?  Now, we’re not stupid.  We know that someone out there probably did say something like that about President Obama, but what’s different is how open people are about it.  No one would have gone on record saying something like that about Obama, but it’s absolutely no big deal to leave a digital paper trail of how you have no problem with someone assassinating the President of the United States.  Would you want that kind of banter coming back to haunt you if such a thing actually came to pass?

What do you think?  Are you anti-Trump?  Are you so anti-Trump that you hope that he gets murdered rather than give him a chance and see what his administration might be like?   And do you think it’s a good use of our First Amendment freedoms to sit around talking about our President getting assassinated because we don’t agree with him?  Is the situation this dire?  We want to hear what you think, especially those who oppose the incoming President.

These comments were taken from the Internet in the comments section of an article about Donald Trump.  We did not blur out the names because these people made this public when they posted public comments, so they obviously have no problem with their names being attached to their statements.  There was a lot more, but we just used this as a sample of the kind of conversation our nation is having.

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?

How Could Hillary Clinton Be So Sure She is Going to Win? Because She Knows For Sure, Of Course

Here at Common Sense Conspiracy, we often talk about conspiracy theories and how sometimes a theory becomes  a self-fulfilling prophecy.  The current state of the United States’ Presidential election in 2016 is a great example of this.  Donald Trump has repeatedly railed against the mainstream media for rigging the election against him.  Of course, he is demonized for this by everyone involved, while an amazing amount of Americans if asked before Trump even came along would have happily told you that they feel like the election is rigged already.

Trump can't make a dictatorship out of America.  We already have one.
Trump can’t make a dictatorship out of America. We already have one.

Rigged elections are not new with Donald Trump.  It’s always been that way to a great degree.   Trump is an impostor, an outsider.  This election was supposed to be Bush vs. Clinton again.  Bernie Sanders almost infiltrated the other side, although they had better safeguards against making sure no one could break through.  Trump broke through against all odds, preventing America from having to watch its two greatest political dynasties duke it out once again.  But once he did break through, what happened?  Both establishments (which we have always contended are really only one establishment) railed against him.  And they are combining forces to keep him out.  It seems crazy to think of establishment Republicans wanting to hold on to their stranglehold on America so badly that they are more than willing to vote for their sworn mortal enemy, Hillary Clinton, just to keep themselves in their cozy spots ruling the world.  It’s a huge wakeup call to America and the world.  These guys are only looking out for preserving their own grip on power.  They don’t have to worry about term limits.  They can stay with this power their entire adult lives.  We have eighty-year-olds running for re-election in Congress when they should be more worried about not peeing in their pants.  It’s fixed, people.  You know it before this, and never has it been more clear.

Now, people on both sides of the fake political system are asking why Hillary Clinton is so arrogant and confident that she will now win the November 8 election?  She is more focused now on winning the Senate over for Democrats than battling Trump.  She is more focused on the transition of power that she thinks is inevitable.  How can she be so sure?  Well, it’s easy to be sure, when you know for sure.

Hillary’s actions are just a blinking red light that the election is fixed, she knows that she is going to win, and everything is a foregone conclusion.  She isn’t worried.  Remember how concerned she was about the possibility of being indicted by the FBI in the email server investigation?  That’s right.  Not at all.  She never appeared the slightest bit nervous.  You aren’t nervous when you know nothing is going to happen.  The election is just another example.  Her rise to power was decided by the super-elite shadow government before now, and nothing will stop it from coming to pass.

The election will be touted as a close one.  Why?  The shadow government realizes that tons of Americans are ticked off.  That’s not just Trump supporters.  There are millions of Bernie Sanders supporters that may or may not vote for Hillary in the election, but are still unhappy about the raw deal Sanders got in the primary.  Think about all of the money people poured into his campaign.  Think about all the volunteers and workers.  It was phony.  It was a fraud.  That money might as well have been stolen.  They never had a chance.  It was fixed.  It’s not speculation.  It happened.  There should be heads rolling for that, and it should stop with the current head of the Democratic Party.  Not the chairman of the DNC, but the real head of the Party.  Her name is Hillary.  People are mad all over, and the shadow government knows this.  They will make it look like Trump was real close to appease those people and make them think that there was a chance that Hillary really could have lost the election.  There’s not a chance at all.  The only way Trump could win is if the American people joined together in the biggest movement since the Revolutionary War, and there are way too many people still sleeping for that to happen.

All hail the Queen.
All hail the Queen.

They’ll make it look close to make you think you had a chance.  There is no chance.  Hillary Clinton is the next American President.  She knows it, and she has known it for some time.  The question is whether the American people will continue to accept this.

It’s funny.  Democrats accuse Donald Trump of being an authoritarian that would lead to a dictatorship in America (which is the most laughable conspiracy theory of all time from a group of people that think valid conspiracy theorists are nuts).  What is more authoritarian than seizing power the way Clinton has?

We already have a dictatorship, and we willingly capitulated to it.  On November 8, we give Hillary Clinton a lifetime achievement award for her lies and cheating by making her the czar of America.

Congratulations.

Trump is Reprehensible For Sure, But Media Continues to Cover for Clinton

The concept that the mainstream media is undeniably biased toward the Democratic side is not a new conspiracy. This is something that most people have known for years. However, it wasn’t until the 2016 election that it became something that they no longer even hide. We have supposed journalistic news organizations publicly throwing their support behind candidates, and almost every news story distorts the facts for its now obvious agenda. This is the next step on the path they are taking us down. They don’t even have to hide it anymore, because they have trained us to be okay with it. It took some time, but here we are. They don’t have to pretend to be real news organizations now; they can simply let their true colors show because Americans will lap it up like a cat at its milk bowl.

Now, is Trump doing anything particularly to advance his cause?  Not at all, really.  The tapes from 2005 of him saying reprehensible things about women are mighty bad, and the media is taking them to the next level by reporting them as speculatively being true.  There is a whole article on the Washington Post’s website right now about whether if Donald Trump really “grabbed a woman by her (private part)” that would constitute sexual assault.  Of course, no reasonable person really thinks Trump really did that, or at least without any participation from the other party.  But here we are, speculating about imaginary criminal offenses while ignoring the real criminal offenses his opponent has already gotten away with.  Furthermore, look at the timing.  WikiLeaks reveals the obsessively sought-after speech transcripts from Hillary Clinton’s Wall Street speeches for which she received over 22 million dollars in return for.  In the speeches, she reveals what she really thinks about a whole lot of things, and it becomes very obvious why she has avoided letting these transcripts get out.  She even goes down the race road, saying that white people when given opportunity will do well for themselves while African Americans will continue to not do well given the same opportunities.  Hmm.  That should be pretty damning, right?

Enter the Trump tape.  No worries.  Not one.  WikiLeaks had planned this out from the beginning for maximum effect, but whoever came up with this tape didn’t just find it yesterday.  They’ve been sitting on this, waiting for the right moment to counteract some real bad news.  Today was that day.  Hillary’s speech transcripts are out there for anyone to view if they like, but as far as the mainstream media is concerned, it never happened.  Most people will never know about it.

Is this an excuse for what Trump said?  Not at all.  Those comments are crude and demeaning.  Unfortunately, there’s probably not a man in America who has not heard other men talk like this.  Would Trump say it their face?  Most likely not, just like the millions of other men that have used similar terminologies when talking amongst other men about women.  While that certainly doesn’t make it right, it does illustrate that there is one heck of a difference between the lewd comments that have taken over our nation and the actions of a Hillary Clinton that are pushing us toward literally having our nation taken over with her long-polished New World Order agenda.

They are going to win this one.  Not Democrats. Not Republicans.  But the shadow government, the elite that really call the shots.  And this is just another creative instance of how they make you believe that you had a choice.  It was just so bad, you had to go vote for Hillary, a person you know beyond the shadow of a doubt is bought and paid for by the New World Order agenda.  You had no choice.

You had to pick that lesser evil.  Again.  This article is not pro-Trump or pro-Hillary.  It is designed to show you how all of these pawns on the chessboard have been delicately and thoughtfully placed to make this exact outcome inevitable.

Illusion of choice.  Lesser of two evils.  Colonized minds.
