I used to think I had a pretty dark view of the world. Pharmaceutical companies were pushing dangerous vaccines, causing the autism epidemic as well as other neurological and behavioral problems in kids. And since that was my view it made sense that the same forces were driving cancer rates up in kids, dementia in the senior population, and genetically-modified (GMO) foods were probably also part of the problem. I could also support those who questioned factory-farming of animals and the effects of wireless frequencies which were essential for our cell phones.
But lately there’s been a whole new level of conspiracy and I’m just trying to keep up.
Las Vegas Shooting – Did Stephen Paddock, a middle-aged rich white guy with no history of violence, suddenly snap and commit the greatest mass shooting in US history since Wounded Knee? Or was it a failed assassination attempt on the Saudi Crown Prince who had concluded a deal with President Trump to go after Islamic terror? I have no idea. Although it does sound kind of suspicious that we’re not going to hear anything about Stephen Paddock’s true motives for nearly a year. And what about those other people who claim there were other shooters? Where are the answers?
Russia-Gate – This genuinely makes my brain hurt. Russia wanted to hack the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign and hand those over to Wiki-Leaks, who in turn would publish them to help Donald Trump? This is the conspiracy theory the mainstream media is pushing. Yes, because that evil Donald Trump wanted to push corporate tax cuts and that would help Russia . . . because . . .?
Uranium One – But wait! Maybe there is a Russia collusion story, but it’s on the Democratic side. In return for Russian entities giving millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation, the Russians would get 20% of our uranium supply. Okay, at least that theory has some sort of crazy logic. Might be bat-shit crazy for all I know, but at least it has some sort of narrative sense.
