This particular area of Common Sense Conspiracy is reserved for special commentaries we have which we file under the general topic of “Sometimes It Is What It Is.”
Part of the mission of this site is to help people interested in conspiracy theories get a look at some real theories without some of the countless ones out there that are really stretching the facts.
Sometimes things happen where no matter how hard we want to, there just simply isn’t a conspiracy. Sometimes it really did happen the way they said it did. Sometimes there’s no method to the madness; people do crazy things. A good example of this is the recent shootings in Norway. Conspiracy websites were spinning webs about this for weeks, but when it all comes down, at the end of the day, one crazy guy decided to shoot a bunch of people. No conspiracy, no cover-up, no space invasion from aliens from Neptune.
Sometimes it is what it is. And when this is the case, look here for Common Sense Conspiracy to show you the way.
Our good friends at Prison Planet recently published an article about the feelings of the French population on the September 11 terrorist attacks. Interesting to see that the sentiment that the sentiment that something isn’t quite right about the government’s story goes beyond just our shores. Check it out here.
NASA’s detailed rebuttal to all of the comet Elenin conspiracy theories was designed to lay these things to rest, but a look around the web quickly shows that not everyone is buying it. This new video, fresh from today, shows some discrepancies with the earlier timeline for the Elenin alignments and suggests that the supposed doomsday might be earlier than originally thought. Of course, this is just one take in a sea of theories. Other amateurs out there say the threat is over because the comet has already disintegrated ahead of schedule.
The Bilderberg Group is a frequent target of conspiracy theorists in our current era, usually related to the circumstances surrounding the proposed New World Order. It’s surprising how many people are completely unaware of this group of super-elitists that meet under the shroud of almost impenetrable secrecy once a year to supposedly set the policies that will guide the world for the upcoming year and years.
The Bilderberg Group acquired its name from the Hotel de Bilderberg where it held its first meeting in 1954. The group was initially formed to bridge differences between Europe and North American sentiments following the conclusion of World War II. In the history books of Americans, the United States is portrayed as a hero for its role in ending the conflict, but this is just a by-product of the patriotism and disinformation that the U.S. government is now famous for. The reality was that there was a tremendous amount of anti-American sentiment existing in Western Europe after World War II that stemmed from many different sources. The final blows of the war didn’t help things either. The United States’ decision to unleash atomic bombs on Japan left most of our European allies unsure about America’s role as a world superpower in the years following. The first Bilderberg meeting was held to unite leaders and persons of influence from Europe and America to forge a plan to promote what is known as Atlanticism. That refers to the Atlantic Ocean, of course, which separates the Americas from Europe. The idea was to boost a sense of unity between the Americas and Europe, not just at a social level, but at all levels, including politics, economics, and military defense tactics. It could be said simply that this was the birth of the concept of the New World Order. Continue reading The Bilderberg Group→
Any conspiracy theory buff has surely heard of the New World Order, an umbrella term for the general concept that a small group of ultra-powerful elitists are slowly but surely scheming to rule the world completely. Sounds like an Austin Powers movie gone a muck, doesn’t it? Like most prevalent conspiracy theories examined at Common Sense Conspiracy, the New World Order starts out as a fairly cohesive sounding theory, but some sites on the web take it to the next level of incredible weirdness and nonsense. So, as usual, we will be investigating these theories and filtering through the bullshit so that you, our loyal readers, can form your own opinions with data that is based on facts instead of fiction.
Behind the New World Order theory is a collection of very secretive organizations that have been accused of having a globalist agenda. That means, put simply, they want to unite the whole world under one flag. Theirs. Like the bad guy in every i’m-gonna-take-over-the-world story or film, the elite, with their online criminal justice degree or even just higher education, believe that what they are trying to propagate is for the good of all of humanity. As a matter of fact, assembling the New World Order effectively would be the greatest achievement of human history. These things don’t happen overnight; the institution of the NWO is supposedly slow, spanning decades, and methodical. Many other mainstream conspiracy theories fall under the NWO moniker. For example, the September 11th “terrorist” attacks being a false-flag operation also fits into the NWO’s globalist agenda. In the aftermath of the chaos and confusion surrounding the attacks, the United States government was able to pass sweeping laws (like the Patriot Act) that gives them the most privacy-intrusive capabilities ever experienced in American history. Under normal circumstances, the American people would have never conceded these everyday freedoms, but against the backdrop of September 11, Americans were willing to give up almost anything to see the perpetrators brought to justice and to prevent future attacks. The idea that the NWO needs this kind of cooperation to come into being is the heart of the conspiracy theories’ speculation that the American government either purposely brought about the tragedy or at least had foreknowledge of it and chose to let it happen.
The effects of September 11th did not stop at the United States’ borders. Across Europe the panic was felt just as much. Then, the subway bombings in Britain erupted to cause even more hysteria. The results: Britain has an unprecedented amount of security cameras across the country. Almost anything that happens in a public place is videotaped. Once again, this might have been seen as overly intrusive in years past, but in the new age of terror, the British grudgingly allowed there privacy to be compromised more and more.
The secrecy of the elite groups that are accused of being at the heart of the New World Order conspiracy doesn’t help stop the rampant speculation. Organizations like Skull and Bones, the Bilderberg group, and the Club of Rome continually yield high-powered chiefs of state and financial behemoths. They conduct their business in a dark shroud of secrecy and security and sometimes they don’t even acknowledge their own existence. The origins of this globalist agenda can be traced to ominous historical societies like the Freemasons and the Illuminati. Put simply, these groups may very well represent a modern-day equivalent of these ancient power brokers.
At Common Sense Conspiracy, the New World Order is one of the conspiracy theories that we lend the most credence too. We are especially fascinated with the Bilderberg group as one of the most likely participants in the globalist agenda. The founders of Common Sense Conspiracy were so fascinated with Bilderberg’s involvement in the New World Order that they wrote a fictional book taking readers inside this exclusive organization and what would happen if the organization itself could be held hostage. The book, Crisis Point, will soon be available in several electronic formats as well as printed form. We will keep you posted as we finalize the novel for publication. In the meantime, we will be examining many of these organizations in this section, looking at the many theories with an eye towards discerning fact from fiction. While Bilderberg is particularly interesting to us, we will look at all the other possible organizations as well and consider all possibilities. We will also tackle some of the crazier theories (in our opinion, anyway) which go from an elite conspiracy to control the world to extraterrestrials returning to Earth to take back what was originally theirs.
Therein lies the problem that Common Sense Conspiracy wants to help the community out with. These theories can have a lot of credibility, and then somebody goes off the deep end and starts talking about aliens, time travel, and UFO’s. Next thing you know, the whole theory sounds like a crackpot, even though some of its foundations were very much legitimate. Not that we won’t discuss aliens, time travel, and UFO’s in other sections, but tying these sorts of things into the New World Order seems ridiculous at best. But, we will dutifully provide the facts.
