10 Conspiracy Theories that Turned Out to be Conspiracy Facts

Here’s #8 and #9 on the list of 10. Click on the link to read all of them.

Excerpt from Zerohedge

8. The Deep State (or the conspiracy theory formerly known as The New World Order)

I describe the Deep State in depth in an article entitled “Forget the New World Order — Here’s Who Really Runs the World.” In it I wrote:

“For decades, extreme ideologies on both the left and the right have clashed over the conspiratorial concept of a shadowy secret government often called the New World Order pulling the strings on the world’s heads of state and captains of industry.

“The phrase New World Order is largely derided as a sophomoric conspiracy theory entertained by minds that lack the sophistication necessary to understand the nuances of geopolitics. But it turns out the core idea — one of deep and overarching collusion between Wall Street and government with a globalist agenda — is operational in what a number of insiders call the “Deep State.”

In the wake of the 2016 election, the concept of the Deep State has grown into somewhat of a common phrase in the lexicon of alternative media theorists, crossing political boundaries and resonating across the ideological spectrum. Everyone from alt-left socialists to alt-righters now agrees there is an unelected cabal of elite neo-conservative corporatists and crony lawmakers running the geopolitical show.

Because it’s such a complex subject and permeates so many different academic, economic, and state apparatuses, it’s virtually impossible to issue a single, simple definition of the Deep State. If I were to hazard one, I would call it “the nexus of Wall Street and the national security state — a relationship where elected and unelected figures join forces to consolidate power and serve vested interests.” But even that is vague. We could also call it “the failure of our visible constitutional government and the cross-fertilization of corporatism with the globalist war on terror.”

Former Republican congressional aide Mike Lofgren gets more specific with who is involved:

“It is a hybrid of national security and law enforcement agencies: the Department of Defense, the Department of State, the Department of Homeland Security, the Central Intelligence Agency and the Justice Department. I also include the Department of the Treasury because of its jurisdiction over financial flows, its enforcement of international sanctions and its organic symbiosis with Wall Street.”

In his writing, Lofgren emphasized the role of FISA international surveillance courts. This was confirmed in a very interesting way when President Donald Trump accused former President Obama of tapping his phones, a charge Obama aides deflected by saying that if such a warrant had been issued, it would have been done through a FISA court. This shows how presidents are able to skirt the constitution by outsourcing surveillance requests. It also shows the interconnectedness of these agencies.

However you want to describe it, it’s the natural conclusion of Operation Mockingbird and most certainly a reality that the elites would have rather kept under the radar. Fortunately for the people of the Earth, revelations from Wikileaks and other whistleblowers have, over the last couple decades, made it abundantly clear that the Deep State (the New World Order) not only exists, but also that it’s far more sinister and powerful than early conspiracy theorists could have ever imagined.

9. CIA used psychics to infiltrate the Soviet Union during Cold War

It’s a plot in a science fiction movie or TV show we’ve all seen: a psychic being leveraged by a law enforcement agency to track down a criminal. The concept of a government psychic program was popularized by the film The Men Who Stare at Goats, which lampooned the mythical STARGATE program supposedly run by the CIA. Most people scoffed at the reality of this and considered it a wacky conspiracy theory, but a recently declassified trove of hundreds of thousands of CIA files finally confirmed not only that psychics are regularly used by police and other law enforcement agencies, but also that the government actually weaponized psychics during the Cold War to try to infiltrate the Soviet Union and gain information.

The documents, made publicly available thanks to the activist group Muckrock, confirm there were top-secret CIA and Defense Department programs to use remote viewing to infiltrate Soviet military installments. There were also programs developing ways to engage in “psychic warfare,” including the development of a “psychic shield” to block Soviet psychics.

Left Propaganda Machine Gearing Up to Smear and Impeach President Pence Even Before Trump Impeachment Begins

The (((power elites))) really don’t have much interest in VP Mike Pence becoming the nation’s father figure should they succeed in removing President Donald Trump from office.

They need a person completely without principle who can lead the nation to open borders, globalism, multiculturalism, and diversity.
In short, they need another Barack Obama.

But Paul Ryan will do. To get Ryan into the Oval Office, Pence must resign or be impeached. The faint beginnings of the next step in the coup are beginning to be seen.

Excerpt from National Review

Washington Post columnist Richard Cohen did some preliminary construction work on what will become the new party line if it appears Pence is likely to replace Trump in office. In his absurd May 15 take — “Trump doesn’t embody what’s wrong with Washington. Pence does.” — Cohen blasts Pence for being a “bobblehead” who nods too much when standing near Trump at press conferences, for publicly stating things that Trump told him, and for having failed to quit being Trump’s running mate while Trump said rude things. In other words, Pence is worse than Trump for being in Trump’s proximity while Trump misbehaves. By that standard every hack and flack who went on TV to defend Bill Clinton in 1998 is worse than Clinton, including the person who blamed the true reports about his misconduct on the lies of a “vast right-wing conspiracy.”

John Oliver, the spirit animal of so much left-wing punditry, said on his post-election show that “Trump is not normal. . . . He’s a human, ‘What is wrong with this picture?’” He added, “But that is when you remember Mike f***ing Pence, who might be even worse — because he looks like he’s from the 1950s, but he thinks like he’s from the 1650s.” To Oliver, Trump is a “racist” “Klan-backed, misogynist Internet troll,” but Pence might be worse because he looks funny — or rather, because he doesn’t look funny.

But as unprecedented as Trump is, Pence is just as precedented. As unheard-of as Trump’s communication habits are, Pence’s are equally heard-of. If Trump is a shock to the system, Pence is a cup of chamomile tea. If “This is not normal” is your mantra, you could hardly hope for a more normal Republican than Mike Pence.

“Normal Republican,” though, the thing the Left has openly wished for all these months, reverts to being an oxymoron should Pence come within sight of the presidency. His promotion would make progressives reach for the old playbook: Attack as a dangerous theocrat who hates women, minorities, and gays. No matter that the evidence for any of this is thin (unlike, say, the evidence for Trump’s volatility or unfitness). Opposition to abortion, or even opposition to government funds being directed to the nation’s leading abortion provider, will be recast as posing a supreme danger to “women’s health.” Disagreeing that we need a federal bathroom policy will be recast as “hate.” It was completely unacceptable even to “normalize” the man who earned 306 electoral votes on November 8. But Pence will be called even more abnormal because he deflects questions about evolution as beyond his pay grade.

Because Pence is a man of faith, the ludicrous attempt to tie the secular, non-moralizing Trump to the neo-Puritan misogynist dystopia imagined in the new TV series The Handmaid’s Tale will be recharged, only this time at 10,000 volts. Pence will be labeled an extremist for being part of the American Christian majority. We’ll be told that Pence’s misogyny is even more outlandish than Trump’s because he declines to have boozy one-on-one dinners with women other than his wife. We’ll hear lies about how Pence wants to electrocute gays to convert them to heterosexuality, or at very least that Pence hates gay Americans.

If Trump is removed from office in a soft coup, the question for the elites is how to keep Trump’s base from violent rebellion. In my opinion, they plan to plant child pornography on Trump’s communications devices–phones, laptops, whatever he uses.

That’s why they pressed embattled Trump long and hard over:

1. Trump’s alleged sexual interest in teenage Ivanka.

2. Trump’s walking into teen beauty contestant dressing rooms filled with half naked girls.

3. The phony Russian dossier that claimed that Trump was having prostitutes urinate as part of his sexual behavior.

4. His infamous “grab ’em” comment.

5. Various lawsuits brought by women who claimed that Trump sexually assaulted them.

We’ve been set up to believe that Trump is a sexual deviant. It would be easy for special prosecutor Robert Mueller to see to it that child porn was planted on Trump. When that bombshell was made public, Trump would be history. Would Pence be implicated too to force him to resign to make way for Ryan? They killed Kennedy and tried to kill Reagan. They will stop at nothing.

THIS PICTURE MAY COME BACK TO HAUNT TRUMP.

Another Obama Kiss of Death? Monkey President Endorses Macron for French President

EMMANUEL MACRON AND SEXUAL PREDATOR WIFE.

Obama’s opposition to Brexit proved to have increased the resolve of the “Leave” voters. Will his endorsement of alleged bisexual or gay Emmanuel Macron for the French presidency also prove to backfire?

The woman who is Macron’s wife began having sex with him when he was 15 and one of her students. The left loves this. It opens the doors to greater public acceptance of pedophilia. The left also loves America’s gay ex-president too.

Lew Rockwell

When the arrogant socialist former president threatened England should the British people vote to secede from the EU oligarchy, it only strengthened the resolve of the secessionists and aided their victory. This suggests that the socialist candidate for president of France, Emmanuel Macron (mislabeled by the American lying media scum as an “independent centrist”) should be a little worried today since Obama “endorsed” him yesterday.

And Marine Le Pen (always smeared as “far” right by the lying media scum) should send Obama a thank you note. Maybe even a bottle of fine French wine.

France’s left-wing feminists are ecstatic over Macron because, according to numerous articles in the media, he began sleeping with his wife, who is 25 years his senior, when he was 15 years old. “It’s about time” the taboo on such practices was lifted, they are saying. His parents reportedly said that they “didn’t call the police,” but voiced their disapproval of their 15-year-old son having sex with a 40-year-old woman. Of course, Hillary Clinton also won 100% of the left-wing feminist vote. It didn’t lead to victory because 100% of the left-wing feminist vote is just 100% of the left-wing feminist vote.

Obama and Macro are two Soros puppets. So of course Obama was going to endorse him.

France: Macron Hacked, Blames Russia, Sues Le Pen

Although the BBC won’t tell it’s readers the details about the Macron hacked documents, Zerohedge offers the image above purportedly showing that leading French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron is involved in a Cayman Islands illegal tax evasion scheme.

It’s not clear that the documents are genuine. They could easily be a smear job on Macron, designed to taint a Le Pen victory, should she win.

BBC

The campaign of French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron says it has been the target of a “massive hacking attack” after a trove of documents was released online.

The campaign said that genuine files were mixed up with fake ones in order to confuse people.

It said that it was clear the hackers wanted to undermine Mr Macron ahead of Sunday’s second round vote.

The centrist will face off against far-right candidate Marine Le Pen.

The documents were leaked on a file sharing website late on Friday.

The Macron camp condemned the leak minutes before the official campaigning period ended at midnight (22:00 GMT).

Candidates and the media now face restrictions until the polls close on Sunday evening, meaning Mr Macron cannot issue any more statements.

Opinion polls had indicated the former economy minister carried a lead of 20 percentage points or more over Ms Le Pen.
What was released?

About nine gigabytes of data were posted online by an anonymous user.
The details are unclear so far, but Mr Macron’s En Marche movement said internal campaign documents, including emails and financial data, had been taken in an “act of massive, co-ordinated hacking”.

“The leaked files were obtained several weeks ago by hacking personal and professional email accounts of several officials of the movement,” it said in a statement.

The campaign said the documents showed only legitimate campaign activities.

France’s election authorities have warned media outlets against reporting on the contents of the leaked documents because of the restrictions now in place.

Who might be responsible?

That too remains unclear. The Macron camp has not blamed any specific party but said the hack clearly aimed to damage it and undermine French democracy,

It compared it to the leak of Democratic Party emails in last year’s US presidential election that was blamed on Russian hackers.

Wikileaks, which published those emails, posted a link to the Macron documents on Twitter but implied it was not responsible.

Last month security experts from the company Trend Micro said that Russian hackers were targeting Mr Macron’s campaign.

Russia has denied that it is behind attacks aimed at Mr Macron.

If Le Pen wins, the press now has it’s narrative: The Russians got her elected.

Meanwhile, CNBC and a host of other news organizations have reported that Macron has sued Le Pen over what he calls Kremlin smears.

The favorite for the French presidency, Emmanuel Macron, has filed a lawsuit following comments made by his far-right rival Marine Le Pen in which she implied the independent centrist politician owns a secret offshore bank account in the Caribbean.

Macron, who has denied he holds any such account, filed a legal complaint on Thursday which prompted the French prosecutor’s office to formally open an investigation ahead of Sunday’s second round run-off vote. The lawsuit is not against Le Pen but is aimed at anyone spreading the rumors online.

The allegations of a secret offshore bank account appeared to have been spread by right-wing websites and social media with Macron’s supporters pointing out some of the sites had also supported U.S. President Donald Trump throughout the U.S. election.

Macron’s team sought to show exactly how the accusations were spread online in the hours leading up to Wednesday’s televised debate by publishing an exhaustive report of how such websites attempted to damage the French presidential hopeful.

March for Science Just Another Leftist Anti-Trump Fiasco

Who could be against science?

Well, lots of sensible people who are told by the (((power elites))) that we must adopt the globalist agenda that includes totally changing our way of life, by giving up our freedoms via voluntary self-enslavement, to be ruled over by nameless faceless bureaucrats who take their orders from those behind the curtain.

The clever left didn’t call Saturday’s demonstrations what they really were, which was support for the usual global warming nonsense.

They want your money and they want power over every aspect of your life. That’s not science. That’s totalitarian Communism under the guise of do-gooderism.

By the way, where the hell was Al Gore? Hiding out because he has less than zero propaganda value these days.

NBC News

It’s not often that bugs get whoops and cheers.

Lovers of science got their day in the rain Saturday as they rallied around their passions, delivering applause for the technology that brought their smart phones to the obvious theme of climate change on Earth Day.

And while the March for Science was on the surface nonpartisan, politics bubbled up again and again.

“Insects don’t see borders and they can climb walls,” Jessica Ware, an evolutionary biologist at Rutgers University, said to applause.

“We must teach our children about evolution. We must teach our children to love insects and arachnids,” Ware said, to howls of approval.

Because it was a march, protest signs abounded, from the funny (“I just came for the pi” and “Without science, it’s just fiction” ) to the sincere (“Science Saves Lives”).

Rain poured on the marchers crowding the Mall but they stood patiently to clap and holler for a procession of speakers giving minute-long soundbites.

Bill Nye, a television science entertainer and educator, noted that “science and the useful arts” are embedded in the Constitution.

“Yet today we have active politicians deliberately ignoring and actively suppressing science. Their information is misguided,” he said.

“Our numbers here today show the world that science is for all.”

Some March for Science speakers invoked patriotism and love of country as their motivation. “I am a patriot. I fight for spacious skies. I fight for amber waves of grain,” said photographer James Balog, founder of the Extreme Ice Survey and Earth Vision Institute.

“America has had 45 presidents but it has never before had a president who is completely indifferent to the truth,” said Denis Hayes, president of The Bullitt Foundation and a coordinator of the first Earth Day in 1970.

Trump has been largely silent about climate change since he took office but has called it a hoax in the past. He has also proposed sweeping budget cuts to the Environmental Protection Agency.

Indifferent to the truth? Bill Clinton, the Bushes, Obama–these bullshitters promoted big government at the expense of gigantic wealth transfers from the working population to the elites.

The fools out marching on Saturday are fools. They are the kind of people who will be the first to be exterminated under future Stalinist purges. Lenin, I believe it was, called them “useful idiots.”

Organizers of the march said they are concerned about Trump’s proposed budget cuts to health and science, and his appointment of Cabinet officials who appear to question scientific consensus about climate, weather and international agreements to reduce greenhouse emissions.

“We are at a dangerous moment in our nation’s history when science and scientists are under attack, when the very words ‘climate change’ are being censored,” artist and environmentalist Maya Lin told the crowd.

“If you want America to succeed, Donald Trump, you can’t lead with your brain tied behind your back,” said Shawn Otto, author of “The War on Science.” “Climate change is real; vaccines don’t cause autism.”

World War Globalism | Styxhexenhammer666 and Stefan Molyneux (Video)

Toward the last 20 minutes of almost an hour and a half of analysis of the failures of globalism, Styx rates President Trump a 6 out of 10 so far, which he thinks is great. In fact, he refers to Trump as another Ronald Reagan, which is a compliment.

I had this video playing in the background as I went about doing other research. It’s far more valuable than anything you’ll get out of Fox News, CNN, etc.

Check the tags below. I tried to include all the topics discussed.

From the youtube information box:

What is the state of the ongoing battle between nationalism and globalism? Styxhexenhammer666 joins Stefan Molyneux to discuss the battle against globalism, the nature of government, opposition to Kim Jong-un, the possibility of regime change in North Korea, the death of the legacy media, the diminishment of the political center, President Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office and the possibility of World War III.

I’m becoming a Styx admirer.

Pulitizer Prizes: Wikileaks Won Nothing

If you feel unappreciated, imagine how Julian Assange feels, locked up in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. I conclude that the Pulitzer Prizes operate in service to the (((New World Order.))) Do not give them the respect they do not deserve.

Longreads

The winners of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize were announced today — on the 170th birthday of Joseph Pulitzer — and though there were some surprises, the majority of the honors were bestowed on some of the year’s most talked about pieces of writing. For example, Colson Whitehead won for his ground-breaking work of fiction, The Underground Railroad. And C.J. Chivers of the New York Times snagged a Pulitzer for his heart-breaking portrayal of a soldier grappling with his life stateside in “The Fighter.”
