Khashoggi Crisis Highlights Years of Conspiracy Theories About Saudi Arabia

The apparent murder of the 59-year-old journalist (and harsh critic of the policies of Saudi Arabia) Khashoggi has caused quite a stir this past couple of weeks.  Now, President Donald Trump is calling this a cover-up.  The United States is proclaiming that those responsible will be punished, and it is openly questioning the official account of things by the Saudis, which is that the journalist was murdered in a Saudi Arabia consulate in Istanbul, Turkey.

Saudi Arabia is a longtime ally of the United States in an area of the world not known for allies of the United States.

Further clouding the situation is a slowly revealed narrative that shows that this was no chance happening, but a premeditated plot to savagely murder a person.  The motive, most believe, is just to silence someone who frequently and provocatively spoke out against the Saudi Arabian government.  Now, a fragile dance is going on between Donald Trump and the Saudi prince as they try to look tough on the international scene while attempting to preserve an alliance that has stood the test of time.  Yet, America’s relationship with Saudi Arabia is frequently the target of conspiracy theories.  Let’s have a look.

Saudi Arabia and 9/11

On September 11, 2001, we all know what happened.  It would lead to the wars in Afghanistan and eventually Iraq.  Yet, Saudis were proven to be a major part of the plot, not just in terms of being on the planes, but in terms of the Saudi Arabian government financing parts of the operation.  It is well known in conspiracy circles that the Saudi prince and a collection of other notable Saudi figures were actually with President Bush just mere hours before the attacks happened.

Conspiracy theories about the Saudis involvement in 9/11 are all over the place, and there is not a lot to discredit them.  As a matter of fact, multiple news outlets publicly reported that Saudi Arabia had been proven to have financed a “dry run” before 9/11.  The concept was that Saudi Arabia footed the bill to allow a couple of nationals to try to test out their theories on how to get around American airline security protocols.  This led to the real deal on September 11 that would change the world and kill thousands.

Saudi Arabia and The Oil War

No doubt the abundance of oil Saudi Arabia is sitting on is a big reason America plays nice.

Oil is the most valuable resource on Earth today, and the Saudis have unbelievable stockpiles of it.  It has long been suspected that this is one of the only reasons that the United States continues to play nice with Saudi Arabia despite numerous acts of hostility believe to be perpetrated by the oil-rich country.   It has also long been suspected that Saudi Arabia squeezes the United States at times by arbitrarily raising or lowering the cost of crude oil.

Saudi Arabia was virtually untouched by the wars on Iraq and Afghanistan, and has enjoyed even more wealth and success through its relationship with the United States, especially in the wake of more drama for Iran.  Most American Presidents give the Saudis a really big pass because of oil, and 9/11 was probably the most sensational example of this.

Will This Alliance Survive Khashoggi?

It’s the question on everyone’s mind.  Will Donald Trump cross the line and say something that sparks an end to the alliance that has been so fruitful for both parties over the years?  And was Saudi Arabia really an ally to the United States in the first place?

Happier times for Trump and the Saudi prince.

The answer is only by necessity and by getting something out of it.  There is no question that Saudi Arabia is not supportive of the United States any more than any other Muslim country in the Middle East.  However, the Saudi family of royalty forged this friendship over the years because of mutual benefit.  It has protected the ruling family as other regimes in the same area of the world have fallen.  Many of those were at least in part because of the United States.  From the Muslim perspective, Saudi Arabia made friends with America, the bully, and then used its economic prosperity to influence it.

Ultimately, it is unlikely that much will come of this.  Much like Donald Trump’s spirited exchanges with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un, this will probably be a war of words with no real direction.  If there’s one thing that Trump understands, it’s money, and he will not jeopardize the fruitful economic situation that an alliance with Saudi Arabia offers.  Despite his insistence that America is involved in bad trade deals all over the world, even Trump will find little wrong with the economic ties to Saudi Arabia.  He certainly won’t be willing to give up the cash and the alliance over one journalist.

This will blow over, and if anything, it may very well strengthen the ties between the Saudi Arabia royal family and the United States.  The worst repercussions to be felt right now, as usual, will fall on the common man.  Expect some jerking around of crude oil prices as the war of words continues.  In the end, though, the anti-Trump media in America is probably going to make a much bigger deal of this than anyone else.  This may very well become the Democratic Party’s “Benghazi” battle cry over the coming midterms and eventual 2020 Presidential Election.  Investigations will be performed, but little will be found.  In the end, Khashoggi is gone, and the world will march on.  The conspiracy world will too.

Conspiracy Definition — You Have to Start Somewhere

Most of our loyal readers can spot a conspiracy when they see one, but not everyone out there is as comfortable with the label. That’s why we are going to take a quick moment here to talk about the definition of a conspiracy. However, we are not talking dictionary definitions here. We are talking about what it means in the real world.

The conspiracy definition according to Merriam-Webster is simple. It’s a plot against something. Maybe unlawful. Maybe not. Some other sources quote a conspiracy as having to have a certain number of people involved, even going as far as to say that any plot between two people is a conspiracy. These definitions are true enough if you are getting technical, but we at Common Sense Conspiracy realize that the average person looking for the definition of a conspiracy on Google is probably not looking for these textbook definitions. They want insight into just what this magical word really means.

Around here, a conspiracy usually means a powerful entity trying to pull the wool over the eyes of a less powerful entity for its own advancement or advancement of its agenda. The most classic example of that would be your standard government conspiracy. Cover-ups are included. Think about the gun control debate. There are many in conspiracy circles that believe the gun control debate is really about the government finding a way to convince citizens to give up their weapons without a fight. It can get really deep from there, but that is the general concept behind that conspiracy theory. A lot of others revolve around the government trying to control things or give up other civil liberties. If it’s not that, then it’s the government trying to hide something that it believes will either cause hysteria or give the people more reason to stand their ground.

Government conspiracies are almost synonymous with conspiracy theories, but that is hardly the only type. Business is another realm where we often hear this term being tossed around. Then there are religious conspiracies a-plenty. However, at their roots, all of these types of conspiracies follow our general definition above. All conspiracies are going to probably involve a higher power trying to hold a lower power down for whatever reason.

So, we don’t know if we really cleared up anything, but it was worth taking a moment and a post to try to clear this up and help people out there that want a better picture of just what the “C-word” really means. They are all around, that’s for sure, and Common Sense Conspiracy will continue to shed light on them when it can.

Royal Wedding 2018 — Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Not Immune to Illuminati and Reptilian Conspiracy Theories

It’s a beautiful and lavish affair that only comes around every so often…a Royal Wedding. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s whirlwind romance has captured the hearts of people worldwide, and now it has culminated in their wedding which attracted plenty of stars and powerful people. So, with this kind of audience on hand, there has to be some conspiracy theories, right? You don’t say. Common Sense Conspiracy has you covered.

The British Royal Family has always been a conspiracy playground. The death of Princess Diana is to Britain what JFK is to America. Also, there is a long-standing if not unusual theory that the Queen and perhaps others are actually reptilians. We’ve never been really hot on that theory but there’s plenty of videos and analysis out there of her “shapeshifting” in front of thousands of live viewers and millions back home. There is also plenty of Illuminati theories around Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. It wasn’t but just a couple of months ago that Prince Harry was being accused of making Illuminati hand gestures in a picture with American First Lady Melania Trump.

While there is a bit of a hangover because of the time difference, you can bet some videos of the wedding itself and Illuminati symbology are right around the corner. We will continue to update you as more theories are suggested, but for now, we leave you with some videos explaining some of what we discussed here. Did you notice something fishy at the wedding itself? Let’s talk about it in the comments below.

John Kerry and the Logan Act — Is This For Real?

A lot is being made, especially in conservative circles, about John Kerry and something called the Logan Act.  This is a statute that many point to as prohibiting a citizen from negotiating with a foreign government without the authority to do so.  John Kerry’s recent attempts to communicate with the Iranians in a failed effort to keep the deal he helped broker alive is being pointed out as a clear violation of this act, which would make John Kerry essentially a traitor to America.  We have included an informative video below about the Logan Act and what it is and what it isn’t so you can make up your own mind.

Like plenty of laws on the books, the Logan Act is outdated and unenforceable.  No law organization would ever in a million years try to prosecute someone on these grounds.  Yet, the law still exists for one reason and one reason only:   for the government to pull it out and dust it off for special situations when it sees fit.  This law is never used to actually charge someone with a crime.  It is only ever used as a reason to investigate someone or push an agenda forward.  Just recently, you can see that with several Trump associates in the Russia investigation.   No one will ever go to prison because of the Logan Act, but it just may over their coffers to federal agents everywhere.

What America Pulling Out of the Iran Deal Means For the Conspiracy World

Well, we could pull a fast one on you here and just simply say “Not much” and move on.  But we’re not going to do you like that.  American President Donald Trump’s controversial decision to pull out of the Iran deal brokered by his predecessor in 2015 is going to cause a lot of speculation, so let’s take a look at what has really happened here.

And both sides said “Whew, that was easy.”

Back in 2015, then Secretary of State John Kerry (also the man who actually lost an election to George W. Bush to grant him a second term as one of the most unpopular Presidents in history) and President Barack Obama were major players in an international agreement with Tehran.  The terms were simple enough in reality.  Tons of money that was frozen was given back to the Iranians and all the crippling sanctions were lifted.  In return, Iran agreed to put the brakes on its nuclear weapons program (you know, the one they insist to this day never existed).  There were going to be inspections albeit on Iran’s terms, a la Iraq in the 1990s.  Of course, those politically affiliated with Obama and Kerry heralded it as an unbelievable moment for peace.  Those that politically opposed them saw it as making a deal with an entity that 100% could not be trusted.

The truth is the original Iran deal was nothing but a political ploy, and it has worked just as Barack Obama intended.  John Kerry nor Obama are stupid (well, maybe John Kerry, but anyway); they know good and well that Iran cannot be trusted to hold up its end of the bargain.  Iran accepted the deal with open arms and probably enriched some uranium to celebrate their success.  In their own country, they probably thought it was the greatest scheme of all time, tricking the Americans into this agreement.  In reality, they were pawns all along.  Obama and Kerry knew it was a useless agreement, but now, they are getting to complete their political chess game with the American public.  As Donald Trump declares the useless and pointless agreement null and void, Obama and Kerry are outraged at this war mongering.  How could he do this?

The truth is, folks, that what this really means is absolutely nothing changed.  Iran never actually stopped what they were doing, and they had no intentions to do so.  What did stop was any pressure from the outside.  Now, the Iranian economy may suffer some repercussions from this, but for the rest of the world, the threat of Iranians with nuclear weapons is no more or less than it was yesterday.  And no deal brokered that hinges on the Iranians doing what they say is likely to ever change that.

So, if you slept good last night with the threat of a nuclear-armed Iran off your mind, nothing has changed, except it turns out you shouldn’t have slept last night either.

Bill Gates Warns of Global Flu Pandemic — 30 Million Dead?

We’re not sure why this story is gaining so much steam in the mainstream media when it is really old news.  Bill Gates has been going around warning everyone of a global pandemic for over a decade.  In fact, he rarely misses a chance to talk about at any event.  We’re not saying the man is wrong, but just that we don’t know why the mainstream media is harping on this like it’s something to take note of today when this has been Bill’s message for years.  Could it be fear-mongering of some sort?  Or is the message really more valid now that it was when Bill started it in the 2000s?  What do you think?  Let us know in the comments below.
