The Momo Challenge is a Conspiracy — Just Not How You Might Think

It caught the Internet by storm, but not really for the reasons you would expect. The so-called “Momo Challenge” was always more myth than reality, and yet the viral nature of the Internet along with the especially delicate subject matter caused it to completely perpetuate itself into social media’s version of society.
Momo is nothing at all really. The concept was that this sinister looking figure shows up on websites and Internet places that are particularly attractive to children and encourages them to do things to harm themselves or others. So, as the story goes, tell your children about Momo, warn them, and watch out for it. It caught on like wildfire and became an international sensation.

Momo looks ghastly for sure, but this is hardly the only thing you need to be worried out on the open Internet highway.

The reality is that this Momo challenge, if it was ever real, has caused very little actual harm. Only one child is supposedly dead because of Momo’s influential meanderings, and that can’t even be truly confirmed. It’s just another Internet legend that has made the rounds. Like the Facebook “your account has been hacked” messages that are all over the Internet at any given second, the Momo challenge was spread a whole lot more by people not recognizing it as a hoax than as an actual harmful agent itself. This happen a lot on the Internet, and it causes a lot of things to be taken as truth when there are no facts to back it up.
So, the bottom line is that Momo isn’t a real thing. Momo hasn’t really hurt anyone. And each time you spread another warning about Momo or click another meme, it’s actually you that are helping Momo survive, not whoever originally created this concept.
We should point out that the general idea is very real though. It is known that pedophiles and human traffickers do attempt to lure children on the Internet. Your guard should always be up against this as a parent. Don’t stop at telling your children to look out for Momo though. The real threat may not be so easily recognizable. It’s better to teach your children general concepts on what to look for. Better yet, be involved in what they are doing and use parental settings to increase their safety while browsing the web. The Internet is still the last bastion of freedom in our society across international boundaries, but that freedom has a price. It means that no matter how good the censors for a service may be, sometimes something your child is not supposed to see may still slip through. The burden is still on you as the parent to monitor what the kiddos are viewing.

Leaving Neverland Conspiracy — One Last Illuminati Hit Job?

The hype was real.  The word on the street was that HBOs new documentary Leaving Neverland was powerful and moving.  And for all the wrong reasons.  Timed to coincide with the tenth anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death, this documentary evokes a lot of emotions on all sides of the situation.

If you are a Michael Jackson fan, you have had plenty of trials and tribulations along the way.  The constant beating of the child molestation drum was troublesome to put it mildly.  While the King of Pop did successfully avoid ever being convicted of anything at all, there are some things in this world that are so damaging that even being found not guilty by a jury of our peers cannot undo said damage.  Child molestation charges are one of those.

You don’t come back from that.  Yes, Michael Jackson’s estate is a license to print money, and yes he will always have loyal fans that insist no matter what that he never did anything wrong.  The reality is that the allegations will always be synonymous with Michael Jackson, and for that reason, they most certainly did hurt his legacy.

Now, with the premiere of the documentary causing as much drama as the hype anticipated, we are getting a new flurry of questions about Michael and whether he was involved with the Illuminati.  If so, is this just one more last hit job by the Illuminati to further impugn his name and reputation?

There’s stars and there’s stars.  Michael Jackson was epically famous like few others have ever been.  The Beatles and Elvis are about the only thing comparable.  People like Prince and Madonna were a big deal and quite controversial at times, but Michael was something bigger than that.  It is a sad but true irony to the whole thing that the child molestation allegations are what took Michael’s celebrity to that next level that even the best of the best could not aspire to.

Everyone knew about Michael Jackson.  Young, old.  White or black.  He was beyond any spectacle the world had seen up until that point.  No one has replicated it since, and in some ways, it may be true that no one wants to.  Michael was a tragic, complicated figure that will always live in at least a little bit of infamy because of the stories of abuse that will forever haunt his name.

Is Leaving Neverland an Illuminati hit job?  Almost certainly not.  The Illuminati most certainly had ties to Michael Jackson, and that relationship may have been strained at times, but the Illuminati doesn’t waste its power on things that don’t matter.  This documentary comes at a time when Michael is basically an afterthought to this world.  His influence is still great, but the Illuminati is well aware that Michael’s legend grew in death.  This documentary is disturbing, for sure, but it will do no more to smear the man’s name than has already been done before.

Why would the Illuminati care at this point?  Whether you believe that Michael’s untimely death was an Illuminati sacrifice or hit job to begin with, there is no reason to think that they would want to do anything to him or his family now.  The damage was done decades ago.  Michael will be a hero to many for generations, but he will always live with the controversy.

We here at Common Sense Conspiracy find it to be infinitely more likely that this documentary is a grotesque opportunity for a few select people to cash in on tragedy and abusive relationships that involve the most famous man of any of our lifetimes.  That is much more palatable than an Illuminati late hit job theory.

Still, we are open to suggestions here.  What do you think?  Is this authentic?  Why did these people lie to protect Michael earlier?  Why come forward now?  What did they have to gain?

2019 Grammy Awards — Clive Davis’ Illuminati Playground?

The Grammy Awards have a certain mystique because there are few events that will feature more Illuminati starlets in one room.  Almost everyone that graces the Grammy stage has at least been accused of being an Illuminati member at some point in their career, so many believe that the Grammy Awards is nothing more than the Illuminati’s grand celebration of everything that they have accomplished since last time.

Is it true?  Are the Grammy Awards really an Illuminati playground?  Sure, of sorts.  The real work takes place at Clive Davis’ ultra-secretive and exclusive party the night before the Grammy Awards.  This is the one that Whitney Houston was supposed to be going to when she was found dead in a bathtub.  It’s a really big deal, and it is not televised, so naturally, this is where the real Illuminati business goes down.  Behind the scenes.  On the actual night of the awards, we see a different kind of Illuminati celebration.

The Grammy Awards are a big television draw.  There’s a lot to attract people.  You have stars of all walks of life in the same building, and there are often blockbuster performances that combine artists that you wouldn’t see performing together in any other imaginable instance.  Think Elton John and Eminem.  Lady Gaga and Metallica?  It happens at the Grammys.  These performances live on through the Internet, and they are a major opportunity for the Illuminati to do what it does best:  spread their message in plain sight without anyone being the wiser.

It’s not contained to performances, however.  Even award presentations can be huge Illuminati-laden moments.  Remember Taylor Swift’s famous moment with Kanye West.  Many believe this was her Illuminati swearing-in ceremony.  She appeared later in the telecast with Illuminati high priestess Beyonce Knowles.  The second time she appeared in a blood red dress, traded in for the virgin white one she wore when she was interrupted by Kanye.  Many see this as her initiation.  So, keep your eyes peeled, as there is not any moment in this telecast that couldn’t be more than it seems.

Expect performance after performance tonight to feature Illuminati symbolism and propaganda.  It’s synonymous with the Grammys at this point.  It’s going to happen.  It is not a question of if but when.

As you can see from the videos below, we are not the only ones that feel like it’s safe to proclaim this an Illuminati-sanctioned event.  We at the CSC will be watching intently and back soon with analysis if any of the performances go over the top.

Live Birth Abortion is On the Table — America Enters New Stage of Radicalization

The debate about abortion is something that frequently makes the rounds in American politics.  Despite being basically decided in the 1970s in Roe vs Wade, not a Presidential election goes by that abortion doesn’t somehow find its way into being a viable political issue.

Common Sense Conspiracy has always been of the opinion that this was an issue that was only opened up to divide America.  Much like gay marriage now, there really shouldn’t be a reason for this to be an issue anymore.  The bottom line is that it has been decided by the Supreme Court and it no longer should matter what any political candidate in any phase of government thinks.  It was our judgment of the situation, and it was sound based on the facts.

Well, yowzers… the game is changing.  The abortion debate is changing before our eyes, and it is going to places we would never have imagined.

The concept that legalizing abortion after birth would even be discussed would seem so foreign a few years ago that it would be a punchline or a sarcastic comeback (why not just raise the abortion date to 5 years old wink wink?).  Here we are though.  This is being thrown out there as a real thing now, and it’s not getting politicians laughed off of the stage.

We are witnessing a new radicalization in the Democratic Party that is a real gamechanger.  This isn’t just about division for the purpose of control anymore.  This goes to the next level.

Is America really that radical?  Are we celebrating live birth abortions now?  Is the left and the right, who we at Common Sense Conspiracy preach and preach are one and the same, splintering before our eyes?

Will killing live babies spark a new civil war?

We don’t know the answers, so we’re asking for your help.  Start the discussion in the comments below.

The How hard did aging hit you challenge conspiracy — photo update time?


Anytime there is a viral anything on the Internet, we here at Common Sense Conspiracy can expect a few emails or messages about whether there is some sort of conspiracy involved. After all, people in conspiracy circles can be a tad bit paranoid at times, and when they see almost everyone biting on something hard, they start to wonder just what it all means in the big picture.

There have been dozens of these over the years. Remember the cinnamon challenge? The ice bucket challenge? That weird dress where everyone just had to let you know what color they see it as. Yes, the list goes on and on. For 2019, we are starting out with something called “The How Hard Did Aging Hit You Challenge.”

It’s catching fire on social media as we speak, and no doubt within hours, you are going to see tons of friends, co-workers and relatives taking to Facebook or their social media drug of choice to post before-and-after style pictures of them several years ago versus now. Like most of these challenges, you can look high and low, but you will never figure out just where this started. Viral things on the Internet are almost always like that. It just takes off and no one really knows whose brainchild they are partaking in. So, many of our loyal readers suggest that maybe it all starts with your favorite uncle — Uncle Sam. That’s right, a lot of people think the How Hard Did Aging Hit You Challenge may have been sanctioned by the government.

But why? What possibly could be the reason for the government to want to start a movement like this? That’s an easy one. See, facial recognition is all the rage in the cyber-security world these days. Turn on any of your favorite CSI-style shows and you’ll see FBI or other agencies using cameras everywhere to scan faces and see who is going where in seconds.

The real world is not as easy. Yes, they have the technology. We know that just by looking around. Facebook has long identified faces and put them with names, albeit with help from their amazing base of users. No doubt the NSA, FBI, and CIA are using facial recognition more and more as the years go by. However, did you ever think about how these databases get populated?

Driver license photographs and mugshots when someone finds themselves on the wrong side of the law are a big chunk of it, no doubt. These standard kind of photographs don’t work that well for facial recognition though. How many times out in the subway are you posing exactly like your driver license picture, or worse yet, your mugshot from a night that turned wrong? We’re guessing not that many. And these don’t get updated for years at a time if they get updated at all.

So, how do you keep a vast database for facial recognition updated all the time? You scour places where people like to put pictures of themselves. Over and over again. Over periods of years. You scour Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, the web for blog pages, high school yearbooks, you name it. The selfie movement helped the government out big time, but how could you make it catch fire again and get everyone to willingly provide you with some pictures showing how they have aged over the years? They even enjoy it. They laugh about it and pass it around to their friends and family.

Is the How Hard Did Aging Hit You Challenge a massive conspiracy? We can’t know for sure. Think about this though. Even if the government had absolutely nothing to do with this viral challenge and it was all the brainchild of someone completely innocent who just thought it was interesting to get people to post pictures of themselves in the past and now, can you imagine for one second that someone in the government hasn’t at the very least thought this a fortuitous turn of events?

It may not be a conspiracy and it may be. The outcome is the same. There is a 100% chance that the government is watching this challenge and using it to increase the accuracy of its facial recognition software. Will you be a willing participant or will you resist the viral movement?

Midterm Elections Prove That the Elite Haven’t Lost a Step

The election of Donald Trump to the office of President of the United States seemed different.  He had usurped the Republican Party somehow and bent it to his will.  It was exciting to those of us in conspiracy circles regardless of whether you actually supported the man himself.  The bottom line is he brought a new hope that maybe the one-party two-party political system could be beaten if the right person came along.

Maybe that was true and maybe it wasn’t.  However, sitting here two years out, the midterm elections are proving that the powers-that-be behind the scenes are as strong and powerful as ever.

What is the Deep State?

It’s not just a term that knuckleheads like Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh use.  It’s real, and we’ve been preaching about it here at Common Sense Conspiracy as long as we’ve been around.  Now, the actual term “deep state” may be new, but basically this is the shadow government, the movers and shakers that pull the strings behind the scenes and really run the United States of America.  Now, in past times, this was something that would have had everyone laughing at you and offering you a hat made of tin foil if you dared bring it up.  Oh, how the times have changed!

Enter Donald Trump.  Conspiracies used to be fodder for sites like us, not the mainstream news.  Fox News, CNN, you name it, all the mainstream media services are now broadcasting conspiracy theories without any evidence around the clock.  We’ve even referenced the media sometimes having to back off the conventional rhetoric that to be a conspiracy theorist means you are off your rocker.  It’s definitely hurt our livelihood here at the CSC to have to compete with global media magnates to discuss conspiracy theories, but that’s the way the ball bounces sometimes.  Anyway, the deep state is nothing new, although for major media outlets to be recognizing it as factual certainly is.

How “The Donald” Changed the Game

The same pattern has been going on for decades, orchestrated by the deep state, if you must call it that.  You have presidential elections with two folks that call themselves either Republican or Democrat.  They toss a lot of crap around, but when it’s all said and done, they are pretty darn similar, and one of them wins.  Then, the other side goes all indignant and in the midterms, the side that is not in power takes over a little bit just to keep everything in this perfect state of denial.  You probably think that Democrats and Republicans want to control the House, Senate, and the Presidency (as both Donald Trump and Barack Obama did have it for two years each).  Nothing could be further from the truth.  Actually, it terrifies them.  That means you have no excuse for not doing anything, and it really reveals what you are all about.

When Barack Obama had the big three, he pushed through the controversial ObamaCare legislation, but left virtually all of George Bush’s policies in place.  He could have done anything he wanted.  That was it.  The midterms came and everything stayed the same for six more years.

Donald Trump could have disassembled ObamaCare.  He tried, but the Republicans refused to do it.  This made them look bad to those that oppose the health care bill.  Here, they finally had the power and they still chose not to do it.  Why?  Because Donald Trump changed the game.

If a normal Republican politician had came into power, he wouldn’t have even tried to repeal ObamaCare because he would have obeyed the deep state’s explicit instructions not to do so.  Trump didn’t listen and pushed anyway, and the Republicans had to stop him.  They would have much rather not have had to take the blame for that, which is why they much prefer the current situation with the split-party Congress.

Why Does Doing Nothing Appeal to Them?

All those agendas and all that trash talk in campaigns, and then you are telling me these guys would rather sit and do nothing and point fingers at each other.  Absolutely.  It’s easy, it keeps the equilibrium that they want, and it keeps the rest of the nation bitterly divided.  That is what those folks in the deep state call a real win-win situation.

They don’t want to change anything.  Neither side does.  Don’t be fooled.  The current situation is what they like and do best.  The Democrats will blame the Republicans for why they can’t get anything done.  The Republicans will blame the Democrats.  Trump will blame everybody.  Ordinary Americans that support either side will be mad, but they will once again take the bait and resign themselves to that position of “if we just had the House we could really do something.”  Ignoring the fact that when they did have all three, still, nothing was done.

History repeats itself and nothing changes except the roots of the deep state ever grow stronger.

Why Do Americans Fall For It?

To be quite frank, because they are really good at what they do.  They get Americans ready to strangle each other talking about issues that have nothing to do with anything.  Issues that have already been decided even.  We’re talking abortion, gay marriage, religion.  They are programmed over time to think that there are so many obvious lines of division that it never occurs to them that their two-party system is actually just one-party playing a really fun game of chess with the pawns, which in case you haven’t figured it out yet, are the American people.

There is no viable third option in most cases, and that is another reason that Americans find it hard to rise up and cast out this silliness.  They do have the power to do it with their ballots, but there’s no other real choice, and when there is a third choice it’s some joke that has no chance of winning.  So, then you fall back into that classic “lesser of two evils” way of thinking.

Yes, there is some logic behind voting for the lesser of two evils, but as they saying goes, if you vote that way, you will inevitable end up with evil one way or another.

Bottom line:  Americans haven’t had enough of it yet.  So, enjoy it.  You are laying in a bed that you make every two years and you have no signs of changing the sheets.

Why Kanye West May Be The Most Rational Voice We Have Right Now?

Rapper, public figure, and significant other to really, really public figure Kim Kardashian Kanye West has been in the news quite frequently here of late, and it’s created quite a stir, as always.  Kanye West has always been a fixture in the news since he reached superstardom, and nothing has changed.  However, the tactics have.

There’s a lot to analyze here.  Kanye’s controversial support of Donald Trump has drawn massive headlines, but his message isn’t really as crazy as the mainstream media would like for you to believe.  Then, his sudden distancing himself from “Blexit,” the media-appointed name for the call for African Americans to leave the Democratic Party (which has done absolutely nothing for them) and join the Republican Party (which has done absolutely nothing for them), has only added to the controversy.  Now, let’s get down to what is Kanye all about and where did all this mess come from.

Make America Great Again — Kanye West’s New Slogan

Donning (isn’t that an appropriate verb) that now infamous red hat, Kanye has been very vocal in his support for President Donald Trump and not just after he won the election.  He also has expressed his love for Hillary Clinton, the Donald’s competitor in the election.  Kanye loves everybody.  However, he has run into a pretty momentous backlash after on a rant on Saturday Night Live in which the actors now claim false imprisonment, and an actual meeting with President Trump in the Oval Office which has now become the ultimate Uncle Tom meme fodder.

The latest in this controversy is the “Blexit” movement.  It is a movement that doesn’t actually exist.  Almost no one believes that African Americans are likely to change their voting habits.  For starters, a huge percentage of them don’t vote.  Those that do tend to lean Democratic and what Kanye and Trump are right about is that they have absolutely no fact-based reason for doing so.  They just do.  Like we state before tongue-in-cheek, the reality is that neither party gives a flying you-know-what about African Americans.  They might as well flip a coin, or even better yet, save that gas money and just stay at the house.

We Need a “Poliexit” Not a “Blexit”

If you’ve been paying attention so far, we have pointed out on two totally separate occasions that the Democratic Party and the Republican Party (which we at Common Sense Conspiracy will always argue are one and the same) both don’t care about African Americans.  That sucks, I guess, but we want to clarify our comments.  It’s not just an African American problem.  It’s an American problem.

See, the same can be said for whites or Native Americans, or whatever other ethnic group you want to dream up.  The Republican Party has never done anything for them either.  Nor has the Democratic Party.  At least not in recent memory, that’s for sure.  The reality is that Kanye is right, but he should distance himself from this so-called “Blexit.”

We don’t need African Americans to leave the Democratic Party and join the Republican one.  We need for Americans to join “Poliexit” where they reject two political parties that have very obviously been colluding against the American public for decades now.  It’s time to turn them all out and find a better way.

Kanye probably doesn’t understand that all the way, but he is actually a lightning rod for free thought.   That counts for a lot in our book.

Kanye’s Message Actually Mostly Makes Sense

It’s fascinating to watch, really.  A prominent and famous African American asks the President of the United States about a lot of critical issues, and he is ridiculed and called crazy.  Meanwhile, an awful lot of what Kanye had to say makes perfect sense, if you stop carrying your party flag.  Kanye spoke out against some things that have been wrong about the political and judicial system since the beginning of the United States.  He gets absolutely 100% zero credit for this.  As a matter of fact, it’s quite the opposite.  Kanye has been written off as crazy by the mainstream media because he has at least kind of sorta sided with Donald Trump.

Remarkably, in all the voices we see right now, Kanye’s might be the most coherent.

But Isn’t Kanye Illuminati?

There are plenty of theories that both Kanye West and his superstar wife Kim are big-time Illuminati members.  We all remember the famous spectacle when Kanye interrupted Taylor Swift at the MTV Video Music Awards to give his public endorsement that Beyonce should have won her award.  That has long been labelled as the moment a new Illuminati priestess was appointed.  Taylor’s (and Beyonce’s for that matter) success certainly seem to validate this theory.

Is Kanye still that figure?  Does that even make sense?

Ironically, yes.  The Illuminati would take probably take more pride in his newsworthiness than anything else.  To the Illuminati, Kanye only matters as long as he has an audience and an outreach.  He has proven with his stands for making America great again that he still has that appeal.

See, it doesn’t matter if they are mad or not.  What matters is they are still talking about you.

Game, Kanye.
