Kanye West has flirted with running for President of the United States multiple times in the last few years. The last we heard, he was still all about 2024. Being an outspoken and controversial Donald Trump supporter, he intended to win in 2024 and keep America on the path to being “great.” However, on the Fourth of July, while President Trump was hosting a huge Independence Day party against all recommendations in a global pandemic, Kanye decided to get on Twitter and announce that it’s not too late. He would be running for President right now in 2020.
Well, July is a little late to throw your hat in the ring, but this is Kanye, so what of it? The first problem is determining if this is even possible. Well, it is, but that’s not as positive as it sounds. Some states have already passed all deadlines and there is no way Kanye could get on the ballot. Some states have not passed these deadlines and it is still feasible. So, at best he could get on some state ballots, although he would need to organize a campaign staff quickly and put things in motion because all of these remaining deadlines can’t be far off.
What’s the point, you might ask? Well, it might make more sense than you think just looking at things on the surface. Imagine if Kanye still fully supports Trump and wants to help. Getting in the election even in a limited capacity could do that. Imagine if just some Democrats and undecideds jumped to Kanye, it could swing a really close election for Trump. It is unlikely that Kanye would siphon away votes from a true Trump supporter, but he may very well siphon a few away from Biden. If the election is close, perhaps even closer than 2016, a little bit could go a long way. And being on those ballots could give him momentum to steal even more votes in other states because the publicity could start a grass roots write-in campaign where he does not appear on the ballot.
Likely? No. Possible? Yes.
There is one more avenue Mr. West could take to get on every ballot. All he has to do is win one of the top political party’s nomination process. So, if he could somehow get the Republican Party to leave Trump behind and adopt him as their candidate, he’s in. Or if he could convince Democrats that he has a better chance of dethroning Trump than Joe Biden, that is another way to go in.
Likely? No. Possible? Well, yes, technically, but hey, there is no way that is happening.
So, what do you think? Publicity stunt? Cooked up conspiracy behind the scenes between West and Trump to help secure the presidency once again for Trump?
This was all over social media a while back as more and more people started to realize that something wasn’t quite right about the “suicide” of Jeffrey Epstein. Now, after an unbelievably long investigation and revolving around allegations from well over a decade ago, Epstein’s esteemed confidant Ghislaine Maxwell is finally facing some charges related to her involvement with Epstein.
When Epstein went down, a lot of people expected Maxwell not to be too far behind. However, she had seemed to have escaped unscathed, but apparently the FBI was watching her closely all this time and ready to pounce once the moment was right. Maxwell probably realized this. She had all the financial resources in the world at her disposal to set up shop in some faraway land, but probably knew that the second she made for an airport, they would be all over her waiting to take her down. So, now, the only question in conspiracy circles is would they have the nerve to do it again?
When Epstein originally found himself in federal custody, there were a lot of people hopeful that this was going to turn into a huge big deal that would expose a lot of powerful people that had been supposedly tied to Epstein. This included royalty and even the Clintons and Trumps. What those people hoping did not count on was the reach of powerful people. Even federal custody did not prove secure enough to protect the life of Epstein. So, now, will Ghislaine Maxwell, who no doubt knows all the same information that Epstein did, meet the same fate?
Our answer: if she really knows everything, and those people out there that might be worried about what she knows know that she knows, don’t be surprised at all if something very similar doesn’t happen. We know what you’re thinking right now? How could they do it again? Wouldn’t that be the most see-through obvious conspiracy of all time?
Yes, of course. And still, they would not hesitate to do so. They don’t mind at all, and we’ll tell you why. They enjoy the speculation about their power and reaches of their collective tentacles. While the mainstream media does its due diligence and explains it away as not a conspiracy, but an uncanny coincidence, the ones behind the scenes will enjoy knowing that a message has been sent to anyone else out there that might be thinking of coming forward.
Now it’s possible that Ms. Maxwell is smarter than all this and has already prepared some sort of backup plan for this situation. Maybe she has brokered some kind of deal between these powerful people out there and herself about what she will tell and what the outcome of all this might be. If not, and she is truly on her own in federal custody, then there is probably not another person in the world that is in more physical danger than Ghislaine Maxwell right at this moment.
We’ll be waiting. In the meantime, let’s kick it off. You heard it here first.
We here at Common Sense Conspiracy have always prided ourselves on taking a common sense approach to conspiracy theories in general and using good old-fashioned logic and reasoning paired with fact-checking and research to form a positive opinion for our readers. That means sometimes we have to tackle more outlandish theories that we may believe on the surface to not be worth the effort. This topic is one of those. We wouldn’t have gone there, but our readers are posing the question. So it’s time for the CSC to take a cold, hard look at the controversy of face coverings and whether any of these theories hold water.
Using masks to fight the spread of the novel coronavirus COVID-19 has become a lightning rod for controversy in the United States particularly. Some of this is probably due to organizations that are supposed to be providing a united front but have not at all since the pandemic began. For example, even now, the United States Center for Disease Control says that masks are a great way to stop the spread. OSHA that watches over occupational safety hazards says the masks are mostly useless. Anthony Fauci, the leading expert on epidemics in the U.S., says face masks are the key. The President of the United States dismisses this as fiction and absolutely refuses to wear a mask himself, even going as far as to chide reporters and staff around him that do decide to wear a mask. Pair this with the fact that the CDC and international World Health Organization themselves couldn’t decide about masks earlier when this all started, and you will see that there is an awful lot of conflicting information out there.
The reality is that if you do your research, you will find a consensus that masks do help, but they are certainly not bulletproof. The bulletproof solution to stopping the spread is staying at home and away from others. This strategy is 100% effective. The masks are a last-ditch effort to offer some protection if you just can’t avoid going out and being around others. In America, where the lockdowns were mostly half-hearted efforts to begin with, the easing of restrictions just meant that people went back to doing whatever they liked. Wear your mask and you’re invincible! It’s not true, and it’s probably part of the reason the United States continues to see cases swell out of control because people are latching on to the mask-wearing part of the advice more than the stay at home part of the advice.
Having said all of this, it probably makes sense to wear a mask if you are going to a place where you might be in close contact with someone beyond your control. It is probably better than nothing. Still, the policy of social distancing or maybe just not going places that aren’t absolutely necessary is still far superior. So why do so many Americans find face coverings to be so controversial? Well, it’s the shame game at work.
See, people that believe in the masks take it as an offense if someone else isn’t wearing one. They see it as they don’t care if they endanger other people. People who don’t wear masks regard those that do as silly for the most part, or overly paranoid. They don’t shame them for it, though. A certain segment of the population that does believe wholeheartedly in the face masks lashes out at those that don’t, and then they turn to legislation for mandates to force people to wear masks. This only creates more division and controversy between the two factions.
The winner, of course, is the government, who is enjoying every second of this unprecedented situation that has allowed government overreach to extend to levels we simply have not seen before in the United States. Now, as more and more communities are deciding to make the decision to mandate mask utilization in public areas outside the home, conspiracy theories are popping up everywhere that this could be the “Mark of the Beast” that is prophesied in the Bibles Book of Revelations. One of the sure signs of the end being near is this mark which all people have to take to do business, even if they are fervently against what it represents. As more and more places refuse to allow entry or barter with people that won’t don face coverings, some are asking the question. Is this the mark?
Well, below you will find some examples of what is going around on the Internet about this, and as you might imagine, Christian fringe conspiracy theorists are really pushing that narrative. As always, though, we caution our readers to take a step back and think this all the way through. Remember, this is not a new phenomenon, although it may be new to these American generations. Back in the early 1900s, the so-called Spanish Flu pandemic caused mass use of face coverings also. Eventually the flu ran its course, killing millions, but establishing enough herd immunity that it ceased to be a big problem in the years thereafter. So, if this were really the Mark of the Beast, then why did it never catch before? Furthermore, while it is becoming more widespread, there are still millions of places in the United States where mask wearing is not only not mandated, but not even encouraged. If this is to be a sign of the things that are foretold in Revelations, mask wearing will have to really gain a lot more acceptance before this pandemic gets under control.
So, is wearing a mask going to save us all? Well, the evidence indicates that it is better than nothing, but a whole lot less effective than just isolation. However, it is far from becoming some sort of government mandated thing to do business. Once the pandemic either subsides on its own or a viable vaccine is produced, then it is a lot more likely that Americans wearing face masks will become something as odd as it seemed back when all this started. In the meantime, we put some examples of people that do not agree with our assessment below so you can make up your mind for yourself. As always, we would love to hear what you think about this in the comments below.
As civil unrest rages across the United States of America, many in conspiracy circles are throwing out theories for what really might be going on behind the scenes in the riots and protests surrounding the tragic death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota last week. The theories here run the gamut of conspiracies, and as we have often pointed out during the last three or four years, we can hardly compete when the mainstream media has made conspiracy theories so mainstream. So we aren’t going to spend a lot of time trying to examine ideas about Antifa or whether white supremacy groups are secretly fueling the protests… stuff like this is fodder on CNN and Fox, so how can we even fit into that mix? Instead, we’re gonna stay on the fringe here and look at some of the oddities.
There are photos going around on the Internet that claim to be from various areas in major cities where riots eventually caused major damage and disturbances. The photos show neat little pallets of bricks that mysteriously showed up at these sites just in time for the powder keg to explode.
Is it true? We at Common Sense Conspiracy caution you to think about what you are looking at. Anyone can snap a photo and say it was from Minneapolis or Atlanta from a few days back. Who’s to say it’s authentic? There is no way to prove these things. It would be way more interesting if someone showed how the pallets got there.
Delivering pallets of bricks would require a transfer truck and probably a forklift to get it out of the truck upon arrival. Put simply, it would be really noticeable if these pallets of bricks were being set up at these sites. There is virtually no way to make that operation inconspicuous, day or night. So question number one in this one going around is how in the world did they get there and why does no one have a picture of that debacle? Why would a business not doing any sort of construction or remodeling not question a pallet of bricks being delivered without a word on its sidewalk. That’s a little far-fetched, and if it were true, there would be a lot more photographs circulating of it in action, not just after the fact.
So, is Common Sense Conspiracy saying that there isn’t some dark force behind the scenes fueling this? Absolutely not. We can examine those conspiracy theories all day long, and we may very come to agree with some of them when we take an objective look at the facts. This article is about the bricks. And this just doesn’t look like a story that has the facts to back it up.
So, we put it to our readers. Did you see these bricks delivered? A pallet on the street looking weird like a seek-and-find puzzle? Do you have the inside information or photos documenting it? We want to hear about it in the comments below. Meanwhile, enjoy this video (not our stance) from YouTube about the bricks.
Conspiracy theorists are often the butt of jokes, especially in the mainstream media, but here we have another situation where it just goes to show that conspiracies are very real and everywhere around us.
Bing Liu, a researcher at the University of Pittsburgh, was “on the verge of making significant findings” when he was mysteriously the victim of a murder-suicide combo. At just 37 years of age, Liu was apparently a gifted and well-respected researcher that was eagerly pursuing knowledge about the novel coronavirus that has swept the globe, destroying lives both through disease and economic impact.
The murder-suicide came as a surprise, as Liu was not involved in anything that would make you think something like this would happen to him (unless, of course, you count doing meaningful and successful research on COVID-19). While early reports indicate that Liu did have some relationship with his killer, a motive has not been determined.
So, those in conspiracy circles around the world are asking the obvious question here. What did Liu know and how close was he to going public with his findings? And was this a potential game-changer for fighting the virus?
On the surface, you may ask why anyone in their right mind would oppose someone making a breakthrough on COVID-19. Yet, there is a huge demographic in the United States that does not want to see the virus end for a variety of reasons. There are some that want to see this continue for political advantage. Others are playing a stock market game (notably China), buying up American stocks while they are in crisis mode to reap huge rewards down the road when it rebounds. Also, remember that the doctor that was about to warn the world about COVID-19 died quickly in China.
The bottom line here is that knowing something about COVID-19 that may make a positive impact usually means you stop breathing shortly thereafter. And then there is the way it occurred. No COVID-19 diagnosis here. A murder-suicide is abrupt and indicates that someone out there knew Liu had to be stopped sooner rather than later, and there was no time to arrange a less mysterious accident. This was almost an act of desperation. Obviously, a murder-suicide leaves no one to ask why.
As more facts come out about this, we will certainly rehash this again, but the reality here is that there is almost zero chance that there is not something going on with this story. It serves multiple purposes too. It silenced Liu, but it also sent a very real message to other people out there that might be getting close to a breakthrough on COVID-19 that they best turn out the lights and go home. If you get too close, bad things happen. The message sent may be more important than the silencing of Mr. Liu.
What did he know? Now, we will probably never find out, but it does seem to indicate that there is someone out there that knows the truth about COVID-19, and they will stop at nothing to keep that from getting out there.
Two doctors in Bakersfield, California banded together to provide a scathing look at real statistics to Americans that is now being branded as down-right evil by the mainstream media and various American medical associations. What really is terrible about it is that you, American citizens as it were, are not even allowed to form your own opinion about what these guys have to say, because YouTube and all social media platforms (including FaceBook, Instagram, and any one you can name right now) are taking this video down just as fast as you can put up a link to it. We are posting this to let you know that you can view it here.
Dr. Dan Erickson and Dr. Artin Massihi are co-owners of Accelerated Urgent Care. They actually offer the only walk-in COVID-19 testing site in Bakersfield. After watching the situation, they were moved to take action. The video struck a chord. That is for sure. It even attracted the attention of Elon Musk. After about three million views, the powers-that-be decided that way too many Americans had viewed the video and ever since, it is incredibly difficult to find the video. It is becoming a cult sensation.
Common Sense Conspiracy still believes that American citizens ought to get to decide for themselves. The information in this video is well-presented and does not appear to be intentionally deceiving. It’s pretty hard to make that same statement about the mainstream media on any day of the week at any moment. So, we think these doctors have an unalienable right (man that sounds familiar) to put their message out. Is it correct? We don’t know. We’re not doctors here at the CSC. But we do believe that Americans should have an opportunity to hear multiple points of view and decide for themselves. You know, like they used to teach in journalism school.
This video is being heavily monitored. We cannot guarantee how long this link will last. Depending on your particular browser, you may have to take a chance and download. We cannot post this on normal video sites for obvious reasons.
Hey, it’s not that original of a concept, really, but the mayor of New York City, Bill de Blasio, has issued a warning on Twitter to the Jewish community that he has no problem rounding them up and arresting them if they don’t obey the city’s lockdown orders. The message was prompted by de Blasio himself going out to supervise the dispersing of a funeral being held for a prominent rabbi in the Jewish community. After seeing that the funeral was broken up satisfactorily by police, de Blasio wasn’t finished, wanting to make sure everyone knows who is the boss.
There is already plenty of backlash going around about his Tweet. As you may be aware, the Jewish people have dealt with a few tyrannical dictators in their time, but one would not expect the threat of arrest in the United States of America, no matter what is going on. For what it’s worth, de Blasio did admit that he may have sent that Tweet out into viral world (no pun intended) in a moment of anger, or you know, full-on genocidal rage. Anyway, it remains to be seen just how ugly this gets. We will keep you posted, and if you live in New York City and you are Jewish, better stay inside. They are coming for you.
