New Retailer Plans for Coronavirus — Helping the Elderly or Targeting the Elderly?

Several retailers are now employing a new tactic in the retail onslaught that is happening because of widespread panic relating to the COVID-19 coronavirus that is sweeping the globe. Conventional wisdom from the results of the virus so far indicate that elderly citizens are much more susceptible not just to contracting the virus but actually being killed by it. So, there has been a lot of communication about keeping these most vulnerable citizens isolated and minimize their chances of exposure.

Despite this conventional wisdom, retailers are now scheduling special times where they only allow senior citizens in the store. While it seems on the surface to be an action with the best of intentions, some enterprising conspiracy theorists are asking questions. Is it wise to invite a herd of senior citizens into a place where everyone that works there has been in constant contact with the overwhelming majority of the general public or hours upon hours over the last several days?

That’s sinister. It’s far-fetched. Why would they want to do that?

And yet here we are. And instead of people questioning their motives, they are receiving accolades from everyone for how caring and considerate they are being.

What do you think? Is this a helpful idea? Or is this putting the most vulnerable at risk?

Also, why not pitch better ideas like grocery delivery to the elderly where they wouldn’t be at risk at all? You could shut down your store for a couple of hours and use the employees to provide a service that might actually help stop the spread of the virus.

Did Sylvia Browne Predict COVID-19 Coronavirus? And What Else Did She Say About It?

As coronavirus fever (pardon the pun) takes over the globe both figuratively and literally, conspiracy theories are flying across the Internet at a dizzying pace.  Fortunately, your friends here at Common Sense Conspiracy are working overtime in quarantine to make sure you hear the newest, greatest theories out there from our trademark common sense perspective.

Sylvia Browne is dead.  However, she is a fairly well-known psychic.  Like a lot of psychics going back all the way to folks like Nostradamus, she generally predicts things in very abstract terms.  She also tends to be wrong a heck of a lot of the time.  Occasionally, she nails it, and then the people get excited.  Over time, she was right just enough to be famous.  Now, one of her predictions in a book she wrote over a decade ago is causing quite a stir on the Internet.  We included some videos from YouTube that are going around about this.

Our take:  well, you can’t fight the facts.  The fact is she did predict this abstractly in one of her books over a decade ago.  Can’t fight that.  Now, on the same page as this prediction she predicted a lot of other abstract things, that may or may not turn out to be true.  That’s the problem with abstract predictions.  It’s hard to tell if they are right or not, because there are no details to fact-check.

It’s entertaining.  If she’s right, the corona virus is going to disappear as quickly as it showed up.  If it doesn’t, I guess we can chalk this up as another one on the wrong side.

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.

Surviving R. Kelly — Is Lifetime Documentary Really an Illuminati Destruction Job?

There are many people in conspiracy circles who believe that Michael Jackson’s accusations of improper relationships with children were nothing more than the Illuminati trying to destroy his name that they had helped build.   Many of Jackson’s accusers eventually admitted that they were not true, which only fueled the fire.  Of course, his untimely death also added to the speculation.  Now, in light of the documentary aired by Lifetime recently about musician R. Kelly, many are asking the same question.

Let’s start out with some background.  The documentary has really stirred up everyone especially in the age of social media.  Make no mistake.  This is not new news.  The whisperings about R. Kelly’s exploits have been around for decades now, and everyone remembers the infamous Dave Chappelle comedy skit that made fun of some of the more unusual kinks of the man.  Of course, Kelly has always denied the accusations, but much like Bill Cosby and other instances like this, the sheer overwhelming number of accusers with strikingly similar accounts just seems to difficult to manufacture.  It’s the old “where there is smoke there is fire” mantra.  It’s hard to believe that a conspiracy could exist so grand that this many people showed up with the same story.

R. Kelly has had a very successful music career, not just as a leading artist, but also as a producer and songwriter.  Rumors of Illuminati ties have circulated in conspiracy circles for years.  If you believe in such things, R. Kelly seems a prime candidate for involvement with an organization such as this.  So, the idea that all of this negative publicity could be some sort of Illuminati smear campaign is a natural next conclusion.

What does the CSC think?  Well, it seems to us that it’s more likely that the documentary is causing so much of a disturbance because of the timing of it.  With the #MeToo movement that has taken hold over the last couple of years and then high-profile cases like that of Bill Cosby and the meanderings of Louis C.K., it could be that people are finally ready to hear these accusations about R. Kelly and give them some real consideration where they were previously just ignored or waved off as one-off incidents.

On top of that, it’s hard to believe the Illuminati would have a lot of beef with Kelly at this point anyhow.  While he is a hugely successful figure in the popular music landscape, he hasn’t enjoyed any major chart success  in years.  His influence right now is probably not on the level that the Illuminati would be very concerned, and there has been no public record of him saying or doing anything that the Illuminati would particularly take issue with.

The bottom line is that while it’s an interesting hypothesis, the most likely scenario here is that R. Kelly’s past is coming back to haunt him and this documentary is taking advantage of a social climate that is much more receptive to this than it may have been five or ten years ago.  Right or wrong, the damage is certainly done.  People of all walks of life are calling for R. Kelly to face the music.  If he is able to overcome this somehow, he may very well need the help of his old friends in the Illuminati to survive.  The title of the documentary refers to his victims, but the title may very well be a good fit for the artist himself.

Below we have a video from a YouTuber that feels strongly that the Illuminati did target R. Kelly. Who knows? It’s healthy to listen to both sides of the story.

Did Police Lie About Alabama Mall Shooter? Is the Shooter Still Out There?

A shooting incident at the Galleria in Hoover, AL on Thanksgiving night captured national headlines.  It was right in the middle of all the Black Friday (which has now morphed into Black Thursday Night) hoopla.  There were extra police already on the scene anticipating mischief from holiday shoppers, so the shooter was neutralized quickly, according to police.  However, there are people questioning the official account of things, including the alleged shooter’s family.

Emantic Fitzgerald Bradford Jr., known as EJ to friends and family, is the son of a police officer and was home for Thanksgiving leave as an active officer of the army.  His family is adamant that he was not the shooter and may have even been trying to stop the real shooter.  Hoover Police not only shot EJ but then refused to get medical attention as he passed away from gunshot wounds at their hands.  Meanwhile, his family insists, the real shooter escaped.

The family is saying that the Hoover Police knew this, but went ahead and declared this young man the shooter in order to calm a frantic public.  After all, Black Friday shopping is important to the economy, and they certainly didn’t want anyone to be afraid to come back to the Galleria.  The family also claims to have video of the officers refusing to help the young man as he was passing away.

EDIT:  The Hoover Police have now bowed to the pressure and admitted that the shooter is still “most likely” at large.  This means they are possibly admitting to a major conspiracy.

We will continue to follow this story as it develops.

Conspiracy Theorists Ask the Question — Are Suspicious Packages a False Flag Operation?

It is now a major news story all over the world.  Suspicious packages are turning up in different places in America, some with explosive devices.  They have no targeted some pretty high-level political figures, including former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton (and therefore former President Bill Clinton) and the Obama family.  Packages were also targeted at George Soros and former Attorney General Eric Holder.  This is only a few of the names.  This is an ongoing news story, and more instances are being revealed as we write this.

For those in conspiracy circles, the question here is who is responsible?  Are these attempted attacks really seriously trying to hurt these targets?  Does anyone really think they can successfully mail a bomb to Barack Obama and expect that mission to be successful?

Most people of normal intelligence would expect that to fail.  And it did.  The Secret Service intercepted the packages, and neither Hillary Clinton nor the Obama family were ever really in imminent danger.  This is not to say that the actions are not despicable because they certainly are.  Our point is just that it seems like a mission doomed to fail, which makes conspiracy theorists wonder if that isn’t exactly what it was.

Would this count as a false flag?  Well, maybe.  What if the Democratic Party was actually behind these attacks?  Wait, you’ve got it backwards, you are thinking right now.  What if the Republicans are behind these attacks is what you meant to say.  Nope, we had it right the first time.

The targets of these attacks thus far have all been people aligned with the Democratic Party.  Now that could change any minute now, but so far that is the case.  So, based on these facts, it is safe to say that the majority of Americans probably believe right now that the origination of these packages will eventually be found to be a Republican sympathizer.  But what if the packages were just designed to create even more bad will toward the Republicans just before an extremely important midterm election cycle that is now not even two weeks away.  After all, a big part of the Democratic battle cry right now is to brand the other side as terrible, heartless people.  This would just be one more nail in that coffin.

Sending packages that you know have no chance of accomplishing their perceived goal means that no one was ever really in danger, so it could be a political ploy.  If this theory held true, that would indeed fit the definition of a false flag operation.

We will continue to monitor this situation as more facts become available, and we will discuss any and all theories.  This is just the first thing that is being tossed around as this story develops.  A suspicious package turning up at a prominent Republican’s doorstep would change the game quite a bit and lead the theories in a radical new direction.  In any case, there is something going in America this week, and Common Sense Conspiracy will be watching it closely.

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.
