It’s tough being a serial killer, really. You have to hide everything, not just from the authorities, but even you closest friends and family. You have to make sure no one at work suspects anything. You have to cover your trail and make sure not to leave one shred of evidence that might lead the relentless police back to you, ending your game forever. Well, it just got a lot tougher. Enter the story of the Golden State killer.
He was famous for the terrible deeds he performed over decades. Now, he’s behind bars, but he was not caught in a conventional fashion. It turns out that the only reason the police were finally able to get this guy off the streets and make him face at least some sort of justice was because someone in this guy’s family placed their DNA on a genealogy website, presumably they could find out more about their ancestors and where their family came from. Anyone can do this for a few bucks online these days, and millions of people all over the world have done just that. It’s big business. Well, what this family is finding out is that one of their relatives was an infamous serial killer, one of the most feared and revered of all time.
So on the surface, it’s hard to argue with success. You are not going to find a lot of folks wanting to defend this guy and we certainly are glad that he is behind bars for the rest of his miserable existence. However, it’s important to understand that what happened here is a bold new territory where privacy laws have not necessarily kept up with technology.
The authorities used this genetic database to narrow down possible suspects. Then, they used more normal investigative techniques to further cull the list. Ultimately, they stalked this guy and waited for him to put his garbage out. Apparently, once a potential DNA sample has been “abandoned” it is open season for anyone to take a look. So, once the suspect left something with his DNA anywhere where it was legally classified as “abandoned” the police could swoop in and verify what they believed to be true. In this case, they got their man and were able to quickly get a warrant to take him down.
That’s one complicated series of events, though. If someone in this guy’s family had not been curious about genetics, this man would have never been caught. So, serial killers, you gotta worry about what the fam is doing as well as the police. In any case, it ushers in some definite worries for privacy. We all know the problem with identity theft and our personal information that no one seems to be able to protect. How long before DNA is the new concern? And is that red Solo cup you drank from last night and deposited in the trash really fair game for DNA analysis?
It’s the kind of news story that you would think would make someone involved, and especially those that politically side with one of these entities, take a moment and go “Well that’s pretty messed up, isn’t it?” Not in America in 2018. Let’s recap the situation.
Back in the 2016 election, WikiLeaks came to the rescue of the American public by revealing in excruciating detail how the Democratic party rigged its primary process to make sure that Bernie Sanders had no chance of defeating Hillary Clinton and becoming their “elected” Presidential candidate. Now millions of Americans gave their hard-earned money to Mr. Sanders campaign, and these allegations which were not even really combatted by the party or Hillary Clinton’s campaign mean that they were basically defrauded on a mass scale. Like Bernie Madoff-style antics. Yet, there was absolutely no investigation into it at all. No one went to jail. No charges. All of a sudden it seemed that the characters on ABC’s Scandal television series were all sweating it about fixing an election for no reason. Apparently you can publicly put the fix in on America’s democratic process, have that revealed to the public, admit it more or less, and everyone just goes on about their business. Incredible, right?
No, it gets better. Meanwhile, Donald Trump’s young Presidency has been plagued by a major investigation into whether or not his campaign somehow colluded with Russia to help him win the election. This investigation is now been going on for multiple years. While a lot of Trump associates are really, really worried, and some may even be going to jail, there is yet to be one shred of evidence that there was any collusion (something Trump repeats over and over) released to the American public. Yet, the investigation rolls on, and the investigation into the publicly-known fixing of the 2016 Democratic Primary remains completely accepted as fair play in American politics.
But wait! It gets better. Now, the Democratic Party is actually attempting to sue the Republican Party in the American legal system for fixing the general election based on no evidence at all whilst knowing and admitting that they fixed their own primary.
You can’t make this stuff up.
Wait. Yeah, you guessed it. It gets better.
The real kicker here is that the Republican Party never wanted Trump either, and instead of being shocked and appalled by what it was revealed that their counterparts across the political aisle were doing, they looked at it like “Man, why didn’t I think of that?” Prediction: Before the 2020 election, the Republican Party will install some sort of superdelegate equivalent to the Democratic Party into their system to make sure that never, ever again can a non-establishment candidate make it past the primary process. They may not be able to stop a true independent, but they can stop an independent from hijacking their party. The Democrats were smarter than that. They thought to fix their primary process to willingly override the will of the American people first.
Now what is that you say about collusion?
We at Common Sense Conspiracy are sure that many of you have noticed our absence over the last several months. There were many reasons that the CSC has been idle, but we want each and every one of you to know that we are coming back on the scene right in time to save the day. That’s right. Common Sense Conspiracy is back and ready to provide a much-needed super-dose of common sense at a time when it seems like the world needs it the most.
Despite the fact that conspiracy theorists transformed from fringe “tin-foil hat wearers” to nightly news anchors somehow (we’ll address that in more detail later), the mission here at Common Sense Conspiracy remains the same. We will take a look at the news of the day (without treading over the same ground by reporting it) with a special focus on conspiracy theories and alternative news of all sorts with our trademark common sense “eye test” approach.
We want to sincerely thank all of our readers and apologize for our absence. Now, it’s time to get down to business.
It was only a matter of time before we had our first major celebrity death in 2018. Today is the day. Lead singer Irish band The Cranberries has passed away at the age of 46. Already, we are getting questions and insinuations of Illuminati involvement.
On the surface that might seem ridiculous, but a cursory investigation reveals that it may not be that farfetched. First of all is the mystery. Outside of a standard admission that the rumors are indeed correct, there is little information about the circumstances of her death. This is a surefire formula for creating massive speculation. What’s more, there is some information out there that suggested her involvement with the Occult before now.
Is this the real deal? Not enough information is available to make a determination at this time, but Common Sense Conspiracy will continue to monitor the situation and we will update you as more details become public. On the meantime, some of the information out there already is included below.
Many conspiracy theories revolve around the covering of one eye.
It’s not just that often that the politics of the state of Alabama enter the national and even international consciousness. You certainly normally wouldn’t see Hollywood celebrities that couldn’t find Alabama on a map endorsing candidates. Still, the current race that will wind up on Tuesday has a lot on the line. Former Judge Roy Moore has a history of controversy, and he has embarrassed the state on the national stage on more than one occasion. That alone would have made him an unlikely candidate, theoretically. But in the manner of Donald Trump, he easily beat his opponents in the primary and seemed to be a shoe-in until women came out of the woodworks to reveal that he may have preyed on young girls when he was younger. This was enough to throw the winner of Tuesday’s election in doubt and give Democrats an outside shot at getting a huge victory. Getting a Democrat elected to the Senate out of Trump-land would be a big deal and would bolster their efforts to take back some Congressional seats in the 2018 election cycle.
What we at Common Sense Conspiracy think about this election is that it is even more proof how wrecked the two-party one-party system in America is. Here you have good, decent people having to pick between someone that may be a child molester or at the very least guilty of some pretty faulty moralistic moves, and on the other side, someone that completely lines up against everything they believe in. Wouldn’t it be a great time for another option that was realistic?
People in America shouldn’t have to vote down a party line regardless of a candidate. People in America should not have to watch the establishment try to manipulate them into doing their bidding. Regardless of your political opinion of Donald Trump, he was signal that America can rise up and decide to over-rule the establishment at times. What will happen on Tuesday? Doesn’t matter. Either way American loses again.
After pretty much every act of terrorism on a major city, Common Sense Conspiracy is bombarded with questions and theories about the events that have just occurred. There are usually false flag theories, crisis actor accusations, and plots to impose martial law on the population.
Today, after a truck attack in the heart of New York City that is clearly being labelled by the government as a terror attack, the Internet was strangely quiet. No accusations. A few theories, but mostly people seem to be in agreement that this event was exactly what it was said to be.
We expect that at some point this will end. And it could also be that the government itself is directly responsible. After the terror attack at the Boston Marathon, Common Sense Conspiracy and many other sites were left without a voice in an event that many believe was the testing of a government-sanctioned Internet kill switch. It wasn’t until the day after that many alternative news sites could even be heard online. Perhaps we are seeing an effect like that again. There could also be political motivations. The mainstream media first reported this as “road rage” and only grudgingly called it a terrorist attack when the government left them with no choice as details became available. The mainstream media is very much against President Donald Trump (both sides, the Republican and Democrat sides), and the last thing they want to report on is a terror attack because it plays into Trump’s agenda.
In any case, we will continue to monitor this situation as more information becomes available, and if the pot gets stirred, we will be the first to come through with our analysis.
The death of Tom Petty is unexpected, although perhaps not as surprising as some other really high-profile celebrity deaths recently. Think Prince or Chris Cornell. Petty lived the rock’n’roll lifestyle for almost his entire life, considering his over forty-year long career in the industry. He certainly enjoyed his share of alcohol and drugs, although he was supposedly clean of all except marijuana, which he was a huge supporter of. In any case, it’s not that hard to buy that Tom Petty could die from a massive heart attack at this age. It’s tragic, of course, and untimely, but not unbelievable.
Facts like that won’t stop the speculation, however. There are already plenty of theories out there on the Internet, especially in conspiracy circles. Could Tom Petty have been an Illuminati sacrifice?
Well, we did our usual investigation into the matter, and there’s really not a lot of information out there that would suggest that there is any evidence to back up this hypothesis. He was good friends with Stevie Nicks, who is often speculated to be an Illuminati member. She also had some sort of relationship with Prince, who passed away in 2016 under suspicious circumstances. Could it be that Tom was murdered as the Illuminati delivering some sort of message to Nicks? Who knows? But there certainly isn’t any real reason to think so on the information we have so far.
Most likely Tom Petty died of a massive heart attack just like they said after living a too short but very fruitful life. Anything else for now is only speculation. Don’t believe everything you read on the Internet.
Also, there is a guy on the Internet that claims to predict the next Illuminati sacrifice, and supposedly gets it right every time.
Truth is he prepares these videos in advance and then changes the titles when something happens to make it look like he predicted it. It still fools an awful lot of people though.
