Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine – Who Benefits the Most?

The atrocities that are happening in Ukraine are nothing short of stomach-turning sickening. Throw in the finger wagging of the international community while it continues to purchase Russian oil and it gets even more disturbing. But you already knew all that. Common Sense Conspiracy is here to make you think about what is not obvious from your gas pump or the local news. So without further ado, let’s take a look at the Russian invasion of Ukraine with our patented common sense approach.

Ukraine, Ukraine — Where Did I Hear That Before?

If you are thinking that there was a time that Ukraine didn’t dominate American headlines, well, you’d be right about that. Ukraine was of little to no significance for a really long time, until a fellow named Donald Trump called the President of Ukraine (yes, that same Zelensky guy) and asked him to step up an investigation into an American citizen that had been involved in some interesting business dealings in Ukraine. That phone call got Donald Trump impeached. However, it also set us on this weird course for Ukraine to dominate everything.

See, what no one talks about right now is who benefits the most if Zelensky doesn’t survive the Russian invasion. It’s not Putin. Zelensky would become a martyr and probably just inspire more resistance. Who else could it be?

Look no further than the American President. That’s right. Joe Biden and his son Hunter have certainly noticed that this is an unbelievably fortuitous series of events for their family and his presidency. After all, Zelensky is one of just a handful of people in this world alive right now that knows exactly what Hunter and the Biden clan were really up to in Ukraine. And there’s an excellent chance that his time alive could be in serious jeopardy.

Is Putin a Genius?

Donald Trump called Putin a genius on a conservative talk show that has many in America questioning his mental capacity as well as his motives. Is Putin that smart? Hard to say. One thing is for sure. He has spent the last decade or more building a war chest to the tune of the hundreds of billions. Sanctions are more symbolic than anything. Yes, the Russian people will suffer, and in some cases, the American people will suffer. Putin, not so much. He didn’t dream up this plan last month. He has built up the capability to what he is doing, and he seems to be all-in Texas Hold’em style. Meaning no turning back.

Did Putin realize the Zelensky-Biden connection? Almost 100% chance yes. He knew that Biden would want to stay as standoffish as he possibly could. After all, Russian forces rolling into Kyiv and killing Zelensky is like a political jackpot. Nothing eliminates your problem quite like, well, eliminating your problem.

Grand Conspiracy? Great Timing?

This photo is what it will look like right after the Bidens find out that Zelensky is dead.

The answer probably lies somewhere in between. If you are asking if we think that Joe Biden orchestrated this all somehow to save his own presidency and his son… the answer is no. He’s not that smart, nor does he have the gift of that kind of foresight. Does he realize right now that Zelensky dying would be a huge win for him and his family? Almost definitely, and that’s even if someone else had to point it out to him.

So, with the rest of the international community sans China and North Korea behind him, Joe will wag his finger, pass meaningless sanctions that hurt all the wrong people, and quite possibly enter the United States into some terrible deals with other major oil producing nations that are just as questionable as the Putin regime. What he won’t do right now is commit to a wider effort to stop the atrocities in Ukraine. Why? Well, it would be a lot cooler if we could just wait until Zelensky goes down first.

Is Zelensky now just a pawn? Should Putin try to capture him? Does the United States really even want him to survive? We would like to hear your thoughts in the comments below.

 

Russia-Ukraine Crisis is Proof That Conspiracy Theories are Mainstream – False Flags and Crisis Actors?

When we say “conspiracy theorist,” what image does it bring to your

The new fashion… look for Joe Biden to show up with one of these on any day now.

mind? Let me guess. A crazy looking dude wearing a tin foil hat. Why is that? Well, for decades, the mainstream media and government establishment has worked overtime to convince everyone that anyone that questions the official account of things is nuts. It’s been a very successful campaign. Just the term being applied to a person severely damages their credibility. That’s what makes it so surprising to see common concepts from conspiracy theories over the years being bandied about in the mainstream media calmly.

False Flags Everywhere

Every good conspiracy theorists worth his salt knows what a false flag operation is. We’ve seen many events in our time that seemed like they could be false flags, but we have always been told that this is crazy talk and no government would ever do something to hurt its own people.

Well, welcome to 2022, where on the nightly news, terms like false flag and crisis actors are now just part of the rundown. Everyone up to the very President of the United States is proclaiming that Russia intends to unleash a false flag operation to give it a reason to invade Ukraine. Media outlets like CNN and The New York Times are reporting that videos coming out of Russian people being evacuated are actually staged.

Put simply, the nightly news would fit in right here at a conspiracy-driven website. Except here at Common Sense Conspiracy, we try to take a fact-based approach to these things. The media is doing exactly what they complain about others doing:  reporting this as if it were fact. You have to admit, though, that no one should be able to spot misinformation on the part of another country better than the kings of it, the American mainstream media.

What’s a Good Conspiracy Theorist to Do?

If you think this means that being a conspiracy theorist is cool now, guess again. This is only going to hang around until it no longer benefits the people in high places and their agenda. After Donald Trump became President, the mainstream media actually had reports on why being a conspiracy theorists during his presidency meant you were a good patriot looking out for democracy. As soon as the election was done, any questioning of it put you firmly back in tin foil hat territory. Don’t think this sudden normalization of conspiracies will last.

Just remember when you hear them talk about these things that you are listening to the very people that told you conspiracy theories were fantasy playtime, but now they ask you to believe it without proof.

Does this mean they are wrong? No, not at all. Is it a stretch for us to believe that Putin has concocted a master plan to get the people of his country behind what might otherwise seem as an unnecessary war in Ukraine? Nope. Actually, he’s pulled this before, and it’s really nothing new at all on the world stage. The only thing new is that the American media and government is happy to talk about it. That in itself should tell you something about the news you are hearing.

Scary Times in America as Even Discussing Vaccines is Taboo – Censorship Here to Stay?

There is little doubt that the world has changed over the last couple of years. We now live in a world where a former American president is banned from Twitter and Facebook social media platforms. Many may not think that is a bad thing, but it does set one amazing precedent.  Under the guise of stopping Donald Trump from making social media posts that encouraged violence, Big Tech, one very potent tentacle of what we refer to here at the CSC as the establishment, neutered Trump’s insane hold over his base.  Meanwhile, heads of state for terrorist organizations and rogue nations Tweet at will. Their message apparently does not offend the establishment as badly.

Even if we can all agree that getting Donald Trump off of social media is a net positive for the world as a whole, this act seems to have changed the game for what is free speech and what is not free speech. The other major factor there is, of course, COVID-19. It started when sites like Facebook and YouTube were not allowing videos that questioned the effectiveness of vaccines, masks, mandates and lockdowns. They banned content about the possibility that COVID is a lab leak. Later, that theory turned out to be quite the opposite of misinformation. Now, it is talked about openly on major networks as it is now considered to be the most likely possibility for how COVID came to be.

Joe Rogan is probably profiting from all these labels of misinformation.

So what’s the next frontier for this unique brand of censorship that we are watching take hold with very little resistance? You can see the beginnings in the events happening now.  Joe Rogan’s extremely popular podcast on Spotify is being targeted big time. Now, Rogan’s brand of podcast isn’t for everyone, and some of the company he keeps and the ideas he allows to be discussed are a little out there. Does that mean he is spreading misinformation? What is misinformation?

Is discussing topics that are obviously unknowns misinformation? We now have the CDC saying that wearing cloth masks is little more than last-ditch effort at protection and highly ineffective. Plenty of people were censored for saying this for the last two years. We now know that if you are considered “fully vaccinated” but not boosted, you are not sporting a whole lot of protection just months out, especially from the Omicron variant. So why argue about vaccination cards if the current legal definition doesn’t even make a difference? But to say this makes you guilty of spreading misinformation.

If spreading misinformation should get you censored, then shouldn’t the CDC and Dr. Anthony Fauci be the first to get the label. After all, almost everything they told us from day one was incorrect. Yes, some of this is because the situation was ever evolving, but I think any reasonable person can probably see that Fauci often doctored his answers for what he thought the much less intelligent minions should hear. When he said no one needed to wear a mask, he was doing it to leave masks for health care professionals. So he told a little lie to stop people from panicking and hoarding masks. But isn’t that misinformation? Or how when he said that if we could just get 60 or 70% of the American population vaccinated, we could achieve “herd immunity.” He actually admitted openly on national television that he never believed that and only said it to make the goal seem more achievable thinking it would encourage more people to get vaccinated.

How about the emails that have now been released where everyone in Fauci’s circle immediately recognized COVID-19 as a lab leak and not a naturally-occurring virus? Yes, the mainstream media buried this as much they could, or left only right-wing talking boxes to jump all over it so it would have no credibility. The information is out there though, and the reality is that Fauci used funding to shut those people down. A little more misinformation.

If Joe Rogan wants to have a doctor on that says the vaccines are a joke, what’s wrong with that? He’s not in a position of authority like Fauci. Healthy debate should never be discouraged, and it’s not misinformation to question whether the vaccines are all they are cracked up to be. The overflowing hospitals ought to show that without any real discussion anyway. We were told it is now a pandemic of the unvaccinated. If that were so, then why are the vaccinated so concerned? Because of other variants that might come along? Well, as long as people all over the world have not had a single dose of vaccine while we give people their third and fourth shots, the variants aren’t going anywhere.

Another question is why the establishment doesn’t understand that drawing attention to programs like Rogan is the last thing you want to do. You can bet that Rogan has picked up more subscribers because of curiosity about what all the fuss is about. If you actually listen to the podcast, you will find no one saying anything definitively, but just people discussing what is happening. Rogan’s best method of picking up subscribers until just recently was probably word of mouth and the occasional viral video. Now, he is getting subscribers because the powers-that-be bring it up for everyone all the time. Sure, there is that part of the population that will immediately demonize Rogan’s show because anything they see on the New York Times front page might as well be handed down to Moses on the mountaintop. Fortunately for the rest of us, there are plenty more people that are not just going to take their word for it.

Rogan’s show is not that funny for a former standup comedian. He frequently lets controversial figures come on (think Alex Jones) and treats them respectfully, but he grills them hard. He is willing to have an open conversation about most anything. It’s a lot of things, some good, some bad. But nowhere could it be called misinformation.

Do spread misinformation, you must have an agenda. Rogan does not have an agenda, except maybe getting more subscribers. The real spreaders of misinformation definitely have an agenda. The scary part is that so many people today are not realizing the censorship that is taking place before their eyes. Even if you agree with it thus far, we have to bring up the trope of the slippery slope. People have trouble seeing things through more of a prism than what they singularly believe. Here’s an example before we go.

Many people on one side of the political spectrum in America were fine with Joe Biden and OSHA requiring private businesses to prove vaccination for COVID-19 for their employees or face fines. The concept seems okay at first glance. These unvaccinated people could be causing a hazard for others, although, once again, if the vaccinations work, why would the unvaccinated be endangering anyone but themselves. That notwithstanding, if you believe that basically one individual being able to install such a mandate is okay, just turn it around. Remember when everyone made a big deal because Trump spouted off some nonsense about UV light and ingesting bleach to fight COVID. Well, if he had decided to order OSHA to make everyone shoot bleach, you would have a problem with that, right? That’s why the mandate couldn’t stand, and thank goodness the Supreme Court stepped in on this one.

Our government is supposed to design where there is no dictator that just decides what is going to happen. For now, that has not been allowed to happen. But what will the future hold? And how far will censorship go?

False Flag Alert! Oh Wait, The United States Government Beat Us to It

Common Sense Conspiracy has been around for over a decade, and we don’t often sound the warning bells for false flags, but at certain points in history over our time here we have alerted our readership to our highest form of warning:  the warning that conditions for a false flag are imminent.

It’s very similar to a tornado watch or warning.  We don’t know for sure, but we can definitely see that conditions are favorable for a false flag to occur.

We would have issued such an alert about Ukraine and Russia, but we didn’t have to worry about it.  The United States did it for us.

False flag attacks used to be the deepest darkest of conspiracy theories.  Now, our government is warning of it in broad daylight.

Wear that tin foil hat with pride.  Look around.  We just keep being right about everything.

Yes, that’s a link from NBC News, not some crazy site on YouTube… Thank you very much.  And as always, please leave your thoughts int he comments below.

False flag alert: 20th anniversary of 9/11 is full of potential

It’s coming up and we can’t believe it either. Common Sense Conspiracy actually launched just ahead of the tenth anniversary of 9/11, and now, another ten years down and millions of readers later, we are reporting on this once again. The CSC takes the false flag alert seriously. We don’t just throw this around lightly. The reality is that never in our history has their been a greater chance of a false flag event.

Why? Because never in our history has there been more of a chance of a real terrorist event. It’s twenty years out from 9/11. We have just witnessed a lackadaisical withdrawal from Afghanistan that left America a joke. We know between the Taliban, ISIS remnants, and good ole Al Qaida that there are plenty of enemies that would also enjoy commemorating this sacred date. And that means even more possibilities for a false flag.

It just makes sense. We are supposedly withdrawing from a twenty year war, but does that really make sense? Does America’s reasons for invading Afghanistan in the first place jive with you? Did we go to get the terrorists or just need a really good excuse to be permanently involved in opioids and oil?

A false flag operation could send us right back in there. There are people at the highest levels of government that probably want that. It comes at a time when no one would blink an eye in believing that we were attacked again.

What do you think? Now it is incredibly likely that no such false flag occurs. We know that. But like a tornado watch, we are just putting it out there. If there was a way to predict a false flag, this would be it. In the meantime, stay safe and we want to hear what you think in the comments below.

Yes, pfizer did pay the largest criminal fine of all time

We have been getting a lot of request about this, and with good reason. The so-called fact checkers of Twitter and Facebook certainly like to pick and choose where they come into play. This is not dependent on your political beliefs; it is painfully obvious at this point to anyone at all that these companies are playing favorites with their application of these “fact-checking” measures. So, that leaves us at Common Sense Conspiracy having to help, as always, filter through the BS. We are more than happy to oblige.

This is being passed around on social media, and it couldn’t be more true. Pfizer did indeed get handed the greatest fine in history. You can see some pretty mainstream folks talking about it in the links below. It happened. Pfizer has a history of shady practices, and they are now the ones that have already accepted billions for vaccines that don’t seem to work as well or last as long as originally thought. They are also being tasked with deciding if we need booster shots. If you were a shareholder of Pfizer stock, well, do you think booster shots at six month intervals are a good idea?

I’m waiting for your answer in the comments below.

It was quite bad. I mean really really bad.
Back in the day when government agencies were actually trying to stop this kind of thing, not play into it 100%.

Could America Vaccinate Itself Right Out of Existence?

It’s not hard to find mainstream media sources telling you how important it is and safe it is for you to go get your COVID-19 vaccination as soon as one, any one, becomes available.  Now, this article is not trying to convince anyone that getting a vaccine is not safe.  We are not suggesting that you should turn down a vaccine or be afraid of it.  We are just going hypothetical here.

The vaccination drive that President Joe Biden is likening to the way the country has come together in instances like the World Wars could do wonders.  Herd immunity is the goal, and it could work.  Early reports are that the vaccines (all of them) are amazingly effective, and the good Dr. Fauci tells us that this unparalleled success is because of advancements in vaccine technology.  The same vaccine technology that has failed to provide a vaccine for AIDS or Ebola, but hey, let’s be positive (not for AIDS or Ebola but in our thinking).  This time, they knocked it out of the park.

The reality is that there is much not known still about COVID-19, and even less known about the vaccines.  They don’t know how long they last, whether they prevent infection, or if they stop you from spreading the infection to others.  They certainly don’t know whether there may be long-term side effects because there simply hasn’t been enough time here to know.  Is it worth the risk to save thousands of lives and maybe get the country back to normal one day?  Well, sure, but the point of this article is to look at the vaccination drive from what some in conspiracy circles are saying.  It’s kind of frightening.

We at the CSC believe the vaccine is probably safe and probably won’t have any long-term side effects that cause global disruption on the scale of the disease the vaccine is supposed to combat.  Still, we must admit a few things here.  It would be pretty incredible if scientists were wrong about that.  What if the COVID-19 vaccines cause serious side effects that no one will know until a certain amount of time passes?

The United States jumped all over the vaccines and is eagerly distributing the vaccine to anyone that will take it.

Could the USA vaccinate itself right out of existence?  Let us know what you think in the comments below.  If you are worried about this, just watch the video below.  Bill and Melinda Gates assure you there is nothing to worry about.  Doesn’t that make you feel all better?
