Terrorism Now Being Used as Excuse to Regulate the Internet

Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May is publicly calling for social media giants like Facebook and Twitter to become hostile places for terrorists looking to communicate or recruit. Now, we all can probably agree that this is a good idea, and we certainly hope that none of our readers would feel otherwise. However, it is our duty at Common Sense Conspiracy to point out where this could lead in the future.
Grabbing control over the Internet has been a problem for world governments for now decades. While we may never know exactly what happened behind the scenes, somehow the Internet took off and became what it is today without governments all over the world realizing it in time to put the clamps down on it. This kind of unchecked freedom keeps them up at night, and there have been many legislative attempts over the years to find a way to exert more control over it. Social media blowing up like it has only upped the ante.
So, while we are not necessarily implying that May and others are using terrorist acts as a means for pushing for more Internet control, we are saying that the possibility for that exists. Whether that is the goal behind the scenes right now, you can rest assured they wouldn’t mind if gaining more control of the Internet and social media was some sort of collateral damage in fighting the spread of extremism. This is another example of what is often referred to by conspiracy theorists as the “slippery slope.” What starts out as one thing, and even a good thing at that, turns into something else entirely with time. Stay tuned as we continue to analyze this and future situations.

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.

Why the Russia Probe Further Proves That America Has a One-Party System

The current controversy regarding the possibility that now President Donald Trump “colluded” with Russia to win the election is a centerpiece in every news broadcast in America and has been for months. Despite a continuing lack of actual evidence, it has been beat into everyone’s brain by the mainstream media, and you can bet that millions of Americans have taken it as fact without really looking into what happened. See, in most investigations in the world, there is a crime and then investigators investigate to try to find out the who, what, when, where, and how of the commission of said crime. In this case, we are working in reverse. Investigators are investigating with no knowledge that a crime has actually been committed. But that is neither here nor there as they say. Regardless of how you feel about the possibility that Trump colluded with Russia, there is some information below the surface here, especially for those of us in conspiracy circles, that really tells an interesting story.
First of all, let’s address the part that the mainstream media never mentions. When they talk about the investigation into whether Trump colluded with Russia, they never reveal anything about the nuts and bolts of it. It’s just left out there with no explanation. The average American walking the street hears that and assumes something a lot more sinister than what they are saying happened. People envision meetings between Trump associates and the Kremlin and hackers up at all hours of the morning on Election Day, making sure that Hillary votes are not counted or are counted for Trump. Maybe a briefcase with stacks of crisp bills in it. You know, really Hollywood this thing up.
Reality is much different. Right or wrong, no matter how you feel about it, the collusion that they are talking about was using WikiLeaks to reveal to the American public that the DNC had rigged their election. Bernie Sanders was never a factor. Hillary Clinton knew from the outset that she would win. It had been promised to her, and the DNC wasn’t about to let another independent (Bernie’s story is awfully similar to Trump’s, if you think about it) storm on to the 2016 election scene and take over their party. All the people that gave money to Sanders’ campaign were the victims of fraud perpetrated by the Democratic Party. And while we may never know for sure if Hillary herself was involved in it, she was the benefactor of it. And if not for another unlikely outsider storming on the scene, she would be the President of the United States now. Revealing this to the American people, regardless of who did it, was a service. Whether Clinton going on to lose the election is better or worse for the world and America is something we will not know. But to learn that conspiracy theorists aren’t that crazy after all, and the primary really was rigged (and not by Russians or Donald Trump, but by the party itself) is a very important revelation for the American people.
So, what they are investigating is whether Trump colluded with Russia to release information via WikiLeaks revealing that the Democratic Party had fixed their election. They are investigating Russia for meddling in an election that they had already meddled in. Meaning, we can fix our elections, but you guys need to stay out of it. Russia is being accused of a terrible crime in American politics. They are being accused of telling the truth. Nobody in Washington believes in stuff like that.
This is not the revelation, however. It seems like the battle lines are firmly drawn between the two political parties, but think about it for a moment. Why are the Republicans not responding to all of this by shouting to the sky for a full investigation into the DNC’s rigging of their primary? Why is there not a massive investigation into an actual known political scandal that resulted in millions upon millions of campaign donations being basically fraudulently taken from the American people? Why is Hillary Clinton not being specifically investigated for her possible involvement in the fixing of the primary? She may have not had knowledge of what was happening behind the scenes. This is true. But if we can investigate the Trump-Russia situation, then surely she should be looked at. They should be shouting it from the mountaintops. There should be committees, lawyering up, and sound bites all over the news.
Crickets. No one has mentioned it. It’s like it never happened. And yet, every single time they mention the collusion probe in the news cycle, this is what they’re talking about. The time that Russia leaked the truth to the American people about the rigging of the Democratic primary and how that may have changed the outcome of the election.
So, why the silence? Why are the Republicans not firing back and throwing shade on the other side? That’s an easy one. Because they are all in it together. They are all colluding. This is what they do. Trump is an outsider, just as Sanders was. They don’t know how he managed to stumble his way in to the White House, but they are all working overtime furiously to make sure nothing of the sort ever happens again. The collusion is on American soil by American politicians, and they are not going to try to have an effect on things by telling the truth. They are not Russia. They will do whatever it takes.

Firing of FBI Director Comey is the Ultimate Government Power Move

Huh?  That’s what you’re saying right now in response to that title you just read for this article.  Power move?  Are you a Democrat?  Republican?  Independent?  No matter.  That’s what makes it so amazing.  It doesn’t matter what you are.  It still worked.

Republicans were angry with Comey because he didn’t push for criminal charges on Hillary Clinton in her email server scandal that plagued her throughout the election.  Then Trump won and they weren’t so angry anymore.  Meanwhile, Democrats were angry with Comey because they felt his actions leading up to the election caused them to lose it.  Now, Trump has fired Comey, and neither party can decide what they are supposed to think.

A power move.  Yes, the ultimate.  This is the greatest prize for our one-party, two-party political system.  They have managed to make people on both sides of the fence they created only to make you think you have a choice angry over the exact same thing and same set of circumstances.  That’s incredible, and if you leave out extremely effective false-flag operations, this could be the most effective government power move of all time.

Stoking division with one move.  Two birds with one stone.  Making sure everyone is watching the one hand while the other one is moving, quickly.

So, whatever side of this political equation you might fall on, make sure you take a second to see the big picture.  Man, that was incredibly devious wasn’t it?  See what they did there?

United States Government Has a Pre-Existing Condition

There is currently a battle going on in the American government about health care.  As you probably recall, President Obama’s Affordable Care Act, often known by its affectionate nickname “ObamaCare”, has been the source of major controversy in the United States for, well, nearly a decade.  Most of this revolves around the idea of a penalty for not signing up for health care and the inflated premiums and deductibles that came as a result of the ObamaCare system.  Now, new President Trump has made it a top priority to get rid of ObamaCare as quickly as possible, but the problem with that is the new potential plan is equally as controversial as the previous one.

Ironically, a lot of the new bill seems to not change much at all, although you’ll have trouble getting a Democrat to agree with you on that.  One of the major differences revolves around pre-existing conditions.  One of the major provisions of the Obama’s plan was that insurance providers couldn’t turn away or charge more to people that already had major health problems.  Naturally, this caused premiums to explode, because while that may be a noble cause, it was pretty much a suicidal move from an insurance business standpoint.  Now, many are saying that Trump’s plan will cause many, many people to basically be out in the cold.  Is it true?  Well, as usual, that depends on who you ask.

The new plan does have a provision for pre-existing conditions, but it is quite different.  This plan sets aside billions of dollars for a “high-risk” pool that theoretically should allow insurance providers to take on these customers without being so worried about what it will mean for their business and potentially passing along costs to other customers.  Will it work?  Who knows, right?  But we at Common Sense Conspiracy want to point out that this is a classic example of our government colluding to distract us from what is really going on.

While it may seem that the battle lines are drawn between the two major political parties in the United States, the truth is that they are actually very much in on this together.  With people like Elizabeth Warren outright saying people are going to die because of this new plan, it creates outrage and uncertainty.  If you think that tactic is new, just remember how the other side of the aisle did much the same when ObamaCare was being pitched.  They talked about death panels and your grandparents getting sent out to pasture if the government didn’t think they were worth the investment.  Once again, none of this came to pass, but what it did do is create plenty of controversy and paranoia.  And why would that be a good thing?

Sleight of hand.  It’s as old as government itself.  While everyone is outraged because of something that is clearly not going to happen, they are making moves that will very much affect each of us.

Look around.  War with North Korea is getting closer.  A conflict with Russia seems more and more imminent.  But we are worried about a health care plan that, at the end of the day, still means our government making decisions about our health care and well-being.  Notice how it doesn’t matter which party is in control, the same outcome is inevitable.  The so-called party of small government isn’t getting rid of government involvement; they are installing their own version of it.  Funny, isn’t it?

Be awake.  Be enlightened (sorry for the Illuminati nod there).  And make sure you watch what the other hand is doing.

Susan Rice Revelation Amidst Russia Probe Proves the Full Corruption of the American Government

In case you missed it, a few weeks ago President Donald Trump shocked the world when he took to Twitter to scold former President Barack Obama for wiretapping him and his associates during the presidential campaign and subsequent transition. Everyone laughed, pointed fingers, made memes, and said Trump was off his rocker. Only, now the Susan Rice revelations are showing that whether or not Trump was exactly right, he was at least not talking complete nonsense, and it will probably turn into quite a political and possibly even criminal issue as the Obama administration seeks to make Susan Rice the fall gal for the second time (remember Benghazi anyone?). We are not here to discuss the allegations and what it means. We just want to give our readers a quick scorecard so they are up to speed on where we are at with things.

Ok, let’s start back last year when Russia supposedly leaked to Wikileaks the emails that revealed that Bernie Sanders never was really in this thing, and the DNC let millions of Americans donate their hard-earned money to his campaign knowing full well that it was fixed and Hillary Clinton would be the candidate no matter what happened. Now, follow along here, Russia supposedly did this to “influence” the election by revealing to the American people that at least half of the primary process was fixed. Now, the whole Russia investigation revolves around the idea that Trump or someone close to Trump was talking and colluding with Russia to make this happen. Just in case that didn’t sink in, they are saying that Trump was colluding with Russia to leak the truth about the Democratic primary to the American people. In other words, Russia sought to influence the election in Trump’s favor by revealing to the American people just how corrupt the Democratic Party really was. And Trump was helping reveal the truth, which is what they are now investigating. I know it’s confusing.

Now, we find out that President Obama’s administration was also working hard to uncover the Trump collusion with Russia so it could leak it to the media or WikiLeaks and therefore influence the election in the other direction. Trump accused Obama of doing so, so he is now accusing Obama of doing what Obama is accusing him of doing. The scary thing is it looks like they are all right.

Yes, everyone is right. Everyone was trying to influence the election in an illegal fashion, and they were all doing it by revealing facts about each of the candidates that are basically indisputable. So, they sought to cleverly lie by telling the truth. Are you still with me?

Perhaps it would have been a lot easier if either political party could have simply found a decent human being to run for President. But that was too much to ask.

The FBI is Investigating Trump Campaign for Collusion With Russia — Influencing the Election By Telling the Truth?

It is pretty spectacular. James Comey today announced that the FBI is investigating whether the Trump campaign (you know, the one that won the election) colluded with Russia to influence the election. That’s pretty crazy news, if not surprising. We were already amazed that Hillary Clinton was able to run for president while being constantly investigated by the FBI (still ongoing, as a matter of fact), and now our sitting President is the subject of an investigation as well. The really crazy thing about it is that while it may be troubling if Trump’s campaign really was making deals with Russia to try to win the election, it doesn’t change the facts about the whole thing. Here’s a shocking revelation for you.

If Russia did try to influence the election, they did it only by revealing true things to Americans about their existing government. Let that sink in for a moment. That’s right. They didn’t hack electronic voting machines and change votes to Trump. They didn’t smear his opponent’s name with stories that were not true. They simply released information that Americans were never supposed to know, among those that the Democratic primary was a put-up deal from day one. Can you be accused of influencing an election by simply making public information the public should have had anyway?

Now, we’re not making a political statement here. The opinion of Common Sense Conspiracy is well known. We are not supporting Trump or Clinton with this message. What we are doing is just reminding everyone that this supposed “collusion” is being reported like it’s a dirty thing. In reality, Russia did the American people a solid by letting us know that our government is a lot closer to Putin’s government than we may have thought beforehand. Unfortunately for Hillary, her name is synonymous with government corruption, so it kind of puts a bad taste in people’s mouth. What’s more, what difference would it make if Russia had revealed damning information about Trump or the RNC? Trump survived the now infamous tape of him saying atrocities and it didn’t even slow down his train. And the RNC might have wished they had a plan like the Democrats did, but we all know that primary wasn’t fixed because of who won it.

So, when you watch these reports of how evil Russia tried to influence the American election, think whatever you like. But remember how they did it… by telling us the truth.
