Is COVID-19 Just a Warmup for Asteroid 52768 (1998 OR2)?

While COVID-19 wreaked havoc around the globe, many of our readers wondered if the government lockdown orders weren’t a precursor to something bigger.  We have alluded to the government’s desire to see all fifty states issue “shelter-in-place” orders on their own accord without a federal decree.  This gives the federal government confidence as it moves forward that the states might do their own thing, but they are still very much in the fold when it comes to the real power infrastructure that runs America and the globe.  While that goal has still eluded them for now, many are now looking to a new potential threat that could really be the finishing move for this social experiment.

Meet asteroid 52768 (1998 OR2).  This asteroid is the kind of beast that you hear about on those apocalyptic doomsday documentaries.  This is the “big one.”  At two miles wide, a direct hit from this thing would probably be a dinosaur-like end to human civilization as we know it.

This space rock moves at about 20,000 miles per hour.  NASA says it will pass very close to the Earth on April 29, right around the time COVID-19 should be peaking in many places.  What does very close mean?  Well, 3.9 million miles is the approximation.

Is it a threat?  Well, the projections indicate that it is an astronomical close shave, but not a threat unless something made it change direction at the last moment.  This is deemed by the experts to be extremely unlikely.

Many in conspiracy circles are now tying the asteroid to everything else that is happening in the world right now.  The insinuation here is that there will be a full-on federal lockdown blamed on the coronavirus, but really in response to the imminent impact of asteroid 52768.  This could even be a full martial law declaration.

Here at the CSC, we try to filter through the you-know-what, and in this case, it doesn’t look like these theories hold a lot of water.  Ultimately, we are a lot more likely to be pounded by an asteroid that no one had any clue was coming, and if NASA thought there was any reason to think this may be a real possible danger, they would have never said a word about it.  They are right about that, by the way.  You see what society was reduced to by the threat of COVID-19, with massive hoarding of toilet paper and other basic necessities, stressing international supply chains like has not been seen since the last World War.

So, whether on April 29 you are worried about COVID-19, severe weather, or a human civilization-ending asteroid impact, better just stay inside until it passes.

Enjoy some other takes and information we perused on the Internet in making the determinations you see in this article.


Is Hurricane Michael Proof of Global Warming?

Hurricane Michael was fierce, that’s for sure. It seemed to spring up out of nowhere. Normally, hurricanes form off the east coast of Africa and slowly but surely gain steam as they approach the North American mainland. Michael didn’t do that. This almost category 5 hurricane seemed to self-start out of the gulf and invade in a matter of hours, not days.

There are those out there that want to use this as ammunition that global warming is the real deal. They will say that storms like Hurricane Michael are going to now be commonplace. Late in the season too. It’s the new normal.

Flash back to Hurricane Ivan. Rita. Even Katrina. They said this was the new normal then too. Then, almost ten years went by without any such catastrophe.

It doesn’t make any difference whatsoever whether you believe in man-made climate change contributing to global warming. Take that and whatever your bias is and throw it out the window. The reality is that whether or not we are on the brink of extinction of the human race, it has nothing to do with Hurricane Michael.

We are now being told by scientists that within ten years, the Earth will be uninhabitable if we take no action. And yet, no one is sacrificing their children or making a run on the bank. Why does this super-dire prediction have such little effect on life as we know it?

Because almost everyone realizes it’s not the real deal. Hurricane Michael was fierce and strong and he cost a lot of money in damage and irreparable loss of life. But he is not proof that there are more to come after him. That waits to be seen.

Hawaii’s Kilauea Volcano Erupting — Lava in Paradise Causing All Sorts of Theories

One thing we’ve learned over the years here at Common Sense Conspiracy is that even natural disasters are not immune from theories all across the spectrum.  The volcano eruptions in Hawaii that are sending lava spewing over streets and even homes are a great example.  Remember, Common Sense Conspiracy isn’t about reporting the news.  Many people are in a time of crisis right now because of these terrible events, but there are plenty of opportunities for you to read or watch videos of what happened.  We are talking about conspiracy theories here, so get ready.

The most prevalent theories we are getting inquiries about relate to one of two topics.  One is the ever-present “Illuminati knew it was going to happen” theory.  The other is related to whether this is somehow related to man-made somehow.  Neither theory has a lot of evidence to back it up, but nonetheless check out the videos below if you want to see what these cats are trying to suggest.  What do you think?  Natural disaster or more to the story?

 

Will the World End Today, September 23, 2017? Nibiru’s Last Laugh?

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.


Curfews Installed for Miami Ahead of Hurricane Irma — Is This Martial Law?

In Miami, there have been mandatory evacuation orders in place for days now. Now, authorities are installing a curfew effective at 4:00 PM this afternoon for anyone that may have not heeded the warnings and stayed behind. This is despite the fact that the hurricane isn’t supposed to be full-force upon Miami until sometime Sunday. Many in conspiracy circles are starting to wonder if this curfew isn’t more than advertised? Is Miami under martial law until Irma passes? And what exactly will be the advancement of this if the damage is as widespread as some are predicting? Could we be seeing the government taking advantage of a bad situation to have a martial law experiment?
Hurricanes have inspired this kind of speculation plenty in the past. Katrina is the best example. After Katrina hit, the city of New Orleans’ entire infrastructure broke down, leaving a situation where there was actually a power vacuum. Could the same happen in Miami? What do you think?

U.S. Virgin Islands Governor Orders Seizure of Guns Ahead of Hurricane Irma

Many in conspiracy circles are getting worked up about an emergency order signed by the governor of the U.S. Virgin Islands that apparently gave permission for forces to start seizing guns and ammunition ahead of the Hurricane Irma catastrophe. The truth is…well that is exactly what happened. While the authorities are denying that any actual seizure of weapons occurred (or could legally), they are not denying that the emergency order that went into effect did indeed include provisions for such, even if it was not executed.

We at the CSC don’t have to tell you what a slippery slope it is when you start signing orders that say you could do it but don’t worry, we didn’t do it this time. There is reason for concern here.

Illuminati Symbolism, Freemasons, and the August 21 Solar Eclipse — A Myriad of Theories But What is Real?

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.
