United States Sends Warships to Monitor Iran, the Trustworthy Country We are Making a Nuclear Deal With

Whoa, there! Wait a minute! It’s hard to keep up with what is going on in the world at this moment. I mean, last week, President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry were happily bragging on the landmark deal they were making with Iran to stop their nuclear weapons program by, well, you know, letting them build nuclear weapons. This week, it seems that maybe those pesky Iranians weren’t quite as trustworthy as the powers-that-be insisted last week, because now the United States has sent warships armed with guided missile systems to Yemen because it seems that there are some real worries that Iran might be transporting weapons to the rebels there because of their vested interest in who gains control of that country. Meanwhile, the United States sat by idly while the administration it wanted in power got in the situation it is in now. So, how does this affect the silly nuclear deal that is nothing more than the equivalent of a punt in a football game sending the Iran problem to whoever wins the White House in 2016? Well, I’m sure we’ll here more about how the deal is perfectly okay in light of this and this is just a “security precaution” just in case those silly Iranians decide to do something.
Isn’t it great that America now has such staunch allies like Iran that we can barter with and trust?

Bilderberg 2015 Set for June in Austria — Which United States Presidential Candidate Will Attend?

As you probably are aware, the Bilderberg group’s annual meeting is legendary for supposedly “selecting” the next President of the United States. The history of future Presidents attending the meeting just before being elected goes back decades and rarely fails. This year’s meeting is slated for Austria, and all eyes are watching with bated breath, wondering which of the potential candidates in 2016 might show up at this year’s gala event. Will Hillary Clinton attend? She already has once before, at the same time as one then relatively unknown Barack Obama. Will Jeb Bush attend? Rubio? Rand Paul? The video below serves as a nice hyping video for the meeting in June as well as giving everyone an idea of what the unreal security detail will be like and what kind of topics might be fodder for the world’s super-elite this summer.

Whoops! 72-Year-Old Deputy Shoots Unarmed Black Man Thinking It Was a Taser — Uh Oh…A Whole New Kind of Discrimination!

The video below is straight from sunglass cameras of police officers in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The suspect allegedly tried to sell an illegally-obtained firearm to a police officer (which is a highly suspicious story, since everyone knows from President Barack Obama’s gun control plans that bad people cannot possibly procure a firearm illegally). After running and getting the full multi-car treatment, the man was down for the count but still resisting when a 72-year-old reserve sheriff’s deputy shot him. He even immediately acknowledged it in the video, saying “Sorry. I shot him.” He meant to use his taser on the subject, but instead fired his handgun. A simple senile mistake, right?
As you might imagine, the incident is already polarizing the nation once again. After all, it’s another unarmed black male and another white police officer. Another tale of “I didn’t mean to.” Another epic mistreatment. But another reaction is taking place that no one even thought. People are saying why would a 72-year-old man even be out in the field making an arrest like this in the first place?
Oh wow… is that age discrimination we hear? Is that age discrimination’s liberty bells ringing? But how does PC America decide which discrimination is the most important? Is it the black guy that got shot while running and resisting the police after committing a felony? Or is it the 72-year-old deputy that got a bit confused and shot him while he was on the ground, thinking he had his taser out?
It’s your America. This is the politically correct, overly litigious America we all contributed in building. So what do you think? We’ve got a clear case of racial discrimination, age discrimination, and possibly a hate crime here? What do you think? Should the 72-year-old fry? Should the innocent but running from the police black guy go free? So many decisions?

Unbelievable Video Details All the Ways the Government Watches Over You on a Daily Basis

Our friends at Rutherford.org created this excellent video that we want all of our readers to know is worth your time.  This video reminds us of just how far “Big Brother” has reached into our lives already.  Some of the ways that the government is peaking over your shoulder may be quite surprising.  It’s definitely worth a look, and it might change the way you view the world around you.

Why the Debates Over “Religious Freedom” Bills are Totally Bonkers — On Both Sides!

This law in Indiana labelled as “religious freedom” has a lot panties in a wad all over America, from both sides of the political spectrum.  For many conservatives and Christians, it represents a law that gives them the right to not be forced to participate in activities that are against their religious beliefs by the government.  For everyone else, it is simply a law making it legal for people to use religion as a valid reason for discrimination.  Common Sense Conspiracy wants to break down why these laws are not really important, nor are they worth much more than the reams of paper they are being written on in dozens of states around the country.

Indiana-religious-freedomFirst things first, let’s think about what the law supposedly provides.  While the law doesn’t state this religion or that religion, the example that most people think of here is a business run by Christians refusing to serve gay people due to religious grounds.  As you probably already know, most Christian denominations view homosexuality as a grave sin and the concept of gay marriage a complete miscarriage of justice when it comes to keeping with the word of God as they perceive it.  So, if you had a business making wedding cakes and you were a Christian, the law supposedly allows you to not bake a wedding cake for a gay marriage because it violates your beliefs.  Well, this is actually America, and here’s a shocking piece of news:  Christians already had that right.  Any business in America has the right to refuse service to anyone at all.

That’s right.  The religious freedom laws are redundant; they secure a right that business owners already have.  If a drunk person comes wandering into your establishment, you can refuse to serve them.  If a person that slept with your wife comes into your establishment, you can refuse to serve them.  And if you have a blood-death vendetta against gay people, well you can refuse to serve them.

But wait… you do have a right to refuse service, but not in a way that discriminates.  Well, that’s stupid.  Think about it.  Anytime you refuse anyone service for any reason at all, it is discrimination.  If you refused service to them because they were wearing a green parka, you discriminated against people that like to wear green parkas.  So, no you really can refuse to serve anyone for any reason.  The discrimination is kind of built in.

So, regardless of how you feel about religious freedom laws, they did not give any person in this country anymore latitude than they already had.  More importantly, it’s a pretty bill for conservatives to put on ballots to convince their mostly Christian bases that they are looking out for them by passing laws that are meaningless.  Meanwhile, liberals and gays are heavily protesting this law because it will open the door to discrimination…and yet that door was already wide open.  But it’s just as silly to think that these religious freedom laws will cause any more discrimination than already exists.  That’s simply not possible.  People will continue to do what they want to do.

But there is another reason for these laws.  It’s division.  The government loves to keep America bitterly divided.  We have watched as President Barack Obama spent two terms in office bitterly dividing whites and blacks in America, setting race relations back fifty years.  These religious freedom laws serve the same purpose.  For the government it doesn’t matter if it’s race, religion, or sexuality that is keeping everyone busy hating each other just as long as they are all hating each other.  Just as long as everyone stays divided.  Just as long as everyone believes that the other side is the problem.  The government’s worst nightmare is for blacks and whites to come together and realize the real problem in America.  The government’s worse nightmare is gay people and straight people to stop worrying about who is sleeping with who and suddenly point the finger at what is really wrong in America.  There is nothing that makes the government drip sweat at night more than the thought of atheists and Christians co-existing peacefully with each other, and then realizing what the real problem in America is.

Do you know what the real problem in America is?

So Bill O’Reilly and Brian Williams Fabricated Elaborate Stories to Advance Themselves — The Mainstream Media Does it Everyday

It was a ridiculously hot story for no good reason at all.  Respected news anchor Brian Williams had to grudgingly admit that he told some tall tales when he said that he was in a helicopter that was fired on in Iraq.  And now there is even more uproar as Bill O’Reilly’s “no spin zone” might be the “all spin zone.”  Our question at Common Sense Conspiracy is simple… who cares?

hillaryBut what about journalistic integrity?  Well, this doesn’t make a hill of beans either, because there never was any in the first place.  When you have a mainstream media propaganda machine that reports the “news” as it sees fit on a daily basis, what difference does it really make if the anchors say they were in wars or not?  They are already delivering fake news to us by the minute.  Maybe they simply have told so much crap in their days on the air that they can no longer separate between what is real and what is fake.

brian williamsIs it kind of sickening to think of these rich pricks acting like they were in seriously dangerous situations?  Yeah.  Soldiers in real combat put their lives on the line and will probably never have a fraction of the yearly income of these blowhards.  But our point is that when your nightly news telecast may as well be advertised as a completely fictional television show anyway, well, does any of it really matter anymore?  At least Jon Stewart’s show didn’t try to sell you that it was 100% up front and legit.  Give us a break.

They Just Won’t Leave the Internet to Be Free — The Department of the Internet Coming Soon?

Whether they label it net neutrality or try to disguise it behind national security, the government can’t stand a free Internet out there for the world to enjoy, and they just won’t stop trying to find a way to take it over.  The video below kind of parodies a Hollywood movie trailer for the fight against the government’s Internet takeover, but it’s not really meant to be funny as much as to show just how important this is going to become.  The government made a huge folly when they let the Internet grow out from under their thumb, and they will not rest until it is controlled and filtered.  Department of the Internet?  It’s a reality that is coming soon to a government near you.
