Were More Crisis Actors at the Scene of the Virginia TV Reporter Shootings?

The terrible shootings that occurred in Virginia yesterday are leading to even more aggressive calls for gun control from Congress, the President, and presidential candidates.  This shooting is unique from other incidents that conspiracy theorists pointed the “false flag” finger at.  First of all, this was apparently perpetrated by an African American.  That is different in and of itself.  These types of shootings have long been the faculty of white people almost exclusively, but maybe this signals a change on the horizon.  Other than that, it seems the same old script we are used to seeing.  There are already calls about mental illness and gun control, and I have even seen some people saying that companies should have programs in place to help people when they get fired.  As absurd as that sounds.

Anyway, there are going to be a group of people that believe that this shooting, even though it occurred on live television, never happened.  And for those people, the video below will be very palatable.  It is interesting for sure why these very familiar figures always are around these situations.  It is also a good question why someone that just heard that their daughter was shot in cold blood on national television would feel the need to speak to Megyn Kelly a few hours later and seem basically emotionally intact.  Although we live in a society where the mainstream media trumps any concept of privacy, it still seems strange that someone would want to do that.  It’s not the kind of thing where you want to get your fifteen minutes of fame, you know.  In any case, the video below may be garbage, but it’s presented well, and there are at least a few things about it that bear discussion.

The Stock Market Scare of 2015 — What the Media Is Not Saying?

With the stock market taking a major dip that left many people still gun-shy from 2008 reeling this week, the mainstream media has been working its propaganda machine overtime trying to convince all of us that there is nothing wrong.  Talking head after talking head has appeared on every mainstream news channel you can think of saying the same things.  This is nothing like 2008.  Why?  There is no mortgage crisis.  The Fed can still step in and help if it gets really bad.  Banks are in good shape.  The goal is simple.  They want to convince the general public that this is not something to get upset about and panic.  However, the mainstream media is very carefully avoiding some facts that you need to know, and if they were doing their journalistic duties correctly, they would be asking these so-called experts these questions, which you will not find mentioned at all in the mainstream media’s reporting on the subject.

Okay, so first excuse.  There is no mortgage crisis.  This is true.  Homes are not foreclosing at a furious rate.  See, the people that lost their homes in 2008’s aftermath don’t have any credit now, so they can’t buy homes.  The people buying homes now in the so-called recovery were those that did not own a home back when that happened, and now they are taking advantage of record-low interest rates and a buyer’s market like never before to get a lot more house for their money.  This does make it look like the housing

market is recovering, and to some degree it is, but if you look at it from a broader point of view, it is only a changing of the guard.  Those people used to own the houses while these people used to rent.  Now it’s the other way around.  But the talking heads are right.  The mortgage bubble bursting was a major contributor to why 2008 was so bad, and that shouldn’t be as big of an issue this time around.  Only there’s another bubble about to burst that may be even worse.  The student loan situation should be the first question journalists ask of these experts when they say there is nothing to fear.  But it is not being mentioned at all, and President Obama passed a silly little measure to lower everyone’s payments a little bit and acted like he had saved the world and everything is fine now.  It’s not.  The student loan situation is as big a problem as ever, and with presidential candidates like Bernie Sanders talking about making college free for people going forward, those swimming in student loan debt are only going to feel more despair as all that debt to get an advantage for themselves may very well be free for their competition coming down the line.  The timing of this with that is a classic setup for a very similar situation as what happened in 2008, just with different moving parts.

Second excuse… the Fed can always save the day.  Well, this one is just stupid.  Interest rates are 0% right now, with the Fed casually mentioning trying to inch them up sometime this year (a scenario already looking less likely by the second).  What are they going to step in and do?  Start paying people to borrow money?  Print some more money spiraling inflation out of control (another reason 2008 went the way that it did)?  No, the Fed has little or no options this time, because all of their economic safeguards are already in play.  The Fed won’t be saving the day, not unless it employs some drastic ill-advised measure that will just be a gigantic bandage, something we have seen happen in places like Greece.

So, you see, the mainstream media is trying to spread the message that there is nothing to worry about, but that is just plain wrong.  Now, perhaps all of these things don’t line up just right and this doesn’t get as bad as we’ve seen before.  We all hope that is the case, but it’s important to realize that what the mainstream media is shoving down your throat is ignoring pretty big chunks of a puzzle.

Anonymous Exposes Murder of Sandra Bland By Texas Police — Doctored Documents?

The hacking group that now involves itself in all sorts of causes known as anonymous has spoken on the matter of Sandra Bland. This African American woman is yet another person that died in police custody in Texas, and many people have suggested that the police faked her suicide to cover up what really happened. Up until now, there was not exactly a whole lot of evidence to back up these claims, but Anonymous is painting a not-so-pretty picture for the Walker County Police Department in the video below, released just yesterday and already fostering nearly a half of a million views.
It should be noted for the record that this case is interesting from different viewpoints not just because of the obvious implications of a police cover-up and murder, but also how it has been treated in the media. Other cases that we all now know the details of (Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, Freddie Gray…unfortunately the list goes on and on and on) were jumped on by the mainstream media. Common Sense Conspiracy has examined the goals of the mainstream media in their coverage many times before. It is notable, however, that the mainstream media mostly ignored the case of Sandra Bland. It was reported, but it never took on the life of those other cases in the mainstream consciousness. You can make of that what you will. Perhaps the mainstream media was fooled by the Texas Police’s scheme and didn’t realize that they missed another golden opportunity to further drive a wedge between race relations in America. Or maybe there is no agenda after all. While we find that highly unlikely, we did think it was important to note that the mainstream media could have blown this case up but did not. It’s worth mentioning at the very least.
What do you think? Is Anonymous speaking on the matter enough to make you believe that Sandra Blass was murdered? Or do you think Anonymous is just throwing salt on an old wound? Let us know in the comments below.

Raw Dashcam of Dylann Roof’s Arrest in Shelby, North Carolina Released to Public — Cordial Cops?

You would think a suspected mass murderer that had just killed nine people would definitely be a candidate for a felony stop when police get an idea of where he is, right? You would expect guns drawn, cops everywhere, and someone with a bullhorn making him go through the whole procedure. Take the keys and drop them out of the car so you can’t take off or run over anyone. Get out of the car, turn around so they can make sure he doesn’t have a weapon before a cop just walks up to the door to get potentially butchered. Nope, these cops acted like Dylann Roof was wanted for unpaid traffic tickets in this now released raw video of his arrest by the Shelby Police in North Carolina.
There are two reasons this video is being released. One is to incite even more anger. African Americans are pissed when they watch this video and see the cordial way Roof was taken into custody after committing a historic atrocity. Many will say that if Roof were a black man, the arrest would have looked a lot different. So, by releasing a video that basically serves no purpose otherwise, the government is making sure that the fire is stoked and has no chance of burning out anytime soon. Incidentally, it also fits another theory. If this arrest were staged because the entire Charleston incident is fictional, then this video being released would still serve all the purposes above and more. So, from a conspiracy standpoint, many will point to this video as just more evidence that something isn’t quite right about the official story of Charleston. What do you think? Was this just an example of some smalltown cops not ready for the big fish they caught? Or is there more to the story? Is this how you would arrest a mass murderer?

Charleston Shootings Took Place During a Federal “Active Shooter” Drill — Coincidence or Conspiracy?

It happens just a little too often to be coincidence, don’t you think? It goes all the way back to 9-11. The Boston Marathon bombings. The London subway bombings. Sandy Hook. There is a long history of events happening during practice periods for just such an event. And now the Charleston shootings are keeping with the tradition. As you might imagine, no one is reporting this on the mainstream media, but it is now a known fact that Charleston was in the midst of a federal “Active Shooter” drill when the actual shooting took place. How many times can this line up this way before there just has to be a connection? What do you think?

Even the Pope Has Given Up on God? Call for Action on Climate Change?

In what can only be labeled as unorthodox, Pope Francis is set to give a special address today on the state of the world with climate change being foremost on the agenda. That’s right, the Pope, of all people, is about to urge people to change their ways and save the Earth from the evils of modern society. That’s the story. Now popefrancisCommon Sense Conspiracy will examine this from many different angle so buckle up your seatbelts and get ready for the ride.
First things first, this probably will leave many Catholics and general Christians alike scratching their heads. After all, the seriously religious tend to be less likely to believe in man-made climate change, and even less likely to think that anything short of an act of God can destroy the Earth or make it uninhabitable for humanity. After all, if you believe there is an omniscient being looking over things, then it’s hard to believe that humanity could just go kaput from environmental factors before all of the prophecies in the Bible come to pass. Basically, it’s like saying that everything in the Bible is coming in the future, unless of course we destroy the Earth before God’s timetable. Even the hardiest Saturday-night partying Christians probably view this as a no-go. So, having the Pope, who is supposedly the closest thing on this Earth to Jesus Christ, tell us that we are upsetting God’s apple cart has got to be a little disturbing. It’s just one of those things you don’t expect the Pope to say. At the end of the day, the Pope isn’t supposed to do anything to suggest that maybe God doesn’t have total power, and perhaps we do hold some cards in the fate of humanity. So, that’s your religious slant on this. It’s provocative at the very least.
Now, politically, Democrats and atheists (an atheist is probably a Democrat, but a Democrat isn’t necessarily an atheist) are about to crap all over themselves with sheer delight that the Pope is doing this for all of the reasons above and more. For them, it is the ultimate mutiny for the Republican Party and Tea Party and whatever other iterations and whatever they might call themselves. They know what an uproar this will be for religious conservatives, and Democrats desperately need something to harp on in the election year coming up since the Supreme Court will most likely take their beating of the gay marriage horse off the table once and for all. So, from political points of view, this will make conservatives’ heads explode and make every Democrat smile with delight.
We know you are waiting for it. Last but most definitely not least is the conspiracy perspective, the one that is far and away our specialty. People in the conspiracy circles are standing back and looking at the big picture and realizing that as usual, nobody wins. See, regardless of how you might personally feel about religion, many people have long recognized that the elimination of religion is a major tenet in the plan for a New World Order, no matter what kind of shadowy organization you might believe is in charge. This is a major score for them. The Pope coming forward and supporting something like this is not just a win for Democrats, but a win for a one-world government. The radicalization of the Pope is just one more step on the way to the kind of totalitarian domination that the powers-that-be have long sought and firmly believe will make the world a better place.
What do you think? Does the Pope’s latest stance bother you? Excite you? Or is it just another “I told you so” on your list?

What is an EMP Attack and Are You Ready?

So it was a slow news day at Common Sense Conspiracy. We decided to spend the breather talking about what many people in conspiracy circles think is a very likely future event. EMP stands for electromagnetic pulse, and an EMP attack could send the United States of America back to the stone age in seconds. It would disrupt everything from communication, power, transportation, you name it. It’s the danger of a society that now depends on computers and increasingly the Internet for so many things. Even our vehicles have enough computer chips inside them that an EMP could render most modern cars useless. Yet, many people don’t even know what this is or that it is a real threat.
An EMP attack requires some serious energy, and the only way to set one off would be by detonating a nuclear level weapon in the air. This would not be a nuclear attack in the conventional sense. We’re not talking mushroom clouds. The bomb would be set off to create a situation in the atmosphere that basically destroyed everything electronic instantly (or at least made it stop functioning). An EMP attack would be a great precursor to a nation that wished to instigate a war against America. While it is assumed that the government and military have some sort of infrastructure in place to deal with the aftermath of such an attack, a country as spread out as America is would have major problems getting back to normal in any kind of reasonable time frame. It would also instantly make almost all warning systems in place useless. A lot of people get made fun of for stocking up for the “zombie apocalypse” or the end of the world as we know it, but the truth is that if an EMP attack were successfully launched against us tomorrow, those people would suddenly be the absolute top of the food chain. The video below goes in further detail about the threat and what you can do to be ready.
