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Like plenty of laws on the books, the Logan Act is outdated and unenforceable.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.
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.
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.
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.
The Internet is abuzz with talk about today being the end of the world. We will show you some examples of where this all originated below. And we are posting this because, as you might have guessed, we would put the probability that today is the last day for all of us at, well, almost definitely zero.
The concept that a dark, mysterious planet X has been barreling toward the solar system at breakneck speed and in total defiance of all concepts of physics and gravity is not new. It even has a name. Nibiru is one of the most popular conspiracy theories out there. It’s so popular, in fact, that NASA and the government has actually addressed it on multiple occasions.
Is there a planet X? There is a consensus in the astronomy community that there probably does. Gravitational anomalies at Neptune, Uranus, and beyond strongly indicate that there is something else out there and it is pretty big for its effects to be felt over that great of a distance. It is also probably pretty dark and mysterious at that unimaginable distance from the Sun. But is it barreling into American airspace to destroy Texas today? Decidedly not.
Even if Nibiru was real and was doing what the theories suggest, if it were close enough for today to be the big day, we would have all noticed the superplanet hanging out in our sky for quite a while now. Of course, having said that, some people think they have seen just that, so who knows, right?
A Christian numerologist really added fuel to the fire by suggesting today was the big day according to the Holy Bible. But he also said that it might be next month or it may take seven years and today is just the beginning of that period. Even he from those amazing credentials is not completely sure.
So, relax. Don’t run on the banks. Don’t store anymore doomsday supplies than you already have. Don’t quit your day job. Today is going to pass, and everything is going to be just fine. That is, of course, if you thought that everything in the world was fine on yesterday.
It should come as no surprise that many out there suspect there may be more to the story of the Barcelona terror attacks than the official media is telling us. We at Common Sense Conspiracy expect an onslaught of questions anytime there is an event like this, and they always run the gamut of conspiracy theories. This time is no different.
We have Illuminati experts claiming symbolism in the way the attacks were carried out, the times, dates, and locations. We have false flag accusations and crisis actors. We have those that think this is a further sign of the Armageddon battle between Christianity and Islam that is inevitable, and has in fact, already begun.
Knowing the truth is impossible in these situations. While we all promote not accepting the mainstream media’s account of things as fact around here, it’s hard to get information, especially when the events are happening a world away in Spain. So, we will continue to watch this situation, and when we see credible evidence of any of the theories above, we will be all over it. In the meantime, here are a few videos of what people are suggesting on the Internet, evidence or no evidence.
The solar eclipse event on August 21 of 2017 has sprouted some very fascinating conspiracy theories. Eclipses have fascinated humans for centuries, and this ultra-rare occasion is one of those kinds of celestial events where you can kind of understand how people were confused or even frightened. After all, it’s not that often that the sun literally goes dark in the middle of the daytime. Despite all of our wonderful scientific achievements over these past hundreds of years, there is still plenty of superstition involved when an event like this closes in. In this article, we will discuss some of the theories floating around and let you see some of the wilder videos out there that claim to provide real evidence. And then, at the end, we will tell you what we think is really going on.
It doesn’t matter which major cult-like entity you bring up from the shadows of the conspiracy world, they are probably represented here. Illuminati? Check. Freemasons? Check. Massive government cover-up? It’s all here my friend. The videos below will show you a crap-ton of symbolism that people have found that all points that something pretty amazing is going to happen on August 21. And we’re not talking about amazing in the astronomical rarity sense.
Intertwined in all of that occult symbolism stuff is our typical religious superstition. There are many Christian websites saying that August 21 has some sort of significance in the Bible and that this is at best, a signal of the beginning of the end, and at the worst, the end itself. Others are saying that the Rapture will occur on this date to coincide with the eclipse.
If all that’s not enough, there’s the doomsday theories. One enterprising site is pointing out that the path of another eclipse that will happen in seven years (we all know about that number seven, right) will cross the path of this one, forming a giant “X” across the United States. Does this mean a major catastrophe is in store for the good old red, white, and blue? Or is August 21 itself the day that the world’s most dominant superpower will begin to not exist anymore? Throw in possible calamities and the coming of the mystical planet Nibiru, and you can see that the theories are literally all over the place. We even have a video that ties Disney into it all.
Last but not least, we have people suggesting that the eclipse will make brooms stand on their own, as is always suggested at the solstices as well.
What does it all mean? What do we at Common Sense Conspiracy think is going to happen on August 21, 2017? Well, everyone that visits here often should know that far be it from us to rain on a good conspiracy theory parade, but the reality is that there just isn’t anything to see here folks. Eclipses seem strange and fantastical to us humans riding on planet Earth, but the truth is it is just a very coincidental thing in the cosmos. Something that is inevitably going to happen, and it doesn’t really mean anything in particular. What is going to happen? An eclipse. If you are in the path, the sun will almost be completely blocked from sight. It will get dark in the middle of the day. It will be weird. Strange. But occult? No, probably not.
Basically, if there is a huge calamity that day or if the Rapture happens against all odds, the real coincidence is that it happened at the same time as the eclipse, and not because of it. That may not be as fun and it may not be nearly as successful click-bait on our site here, but that is our official opinion.
The biggest thing you have to fear on August 21, 2017 is that your glasses you bought on Amazon weren’t really good enough to withstand gazing at a solar eclipse. Be afraid. Be very afraid.
