Conspiracy Or Chaos?

Authored by Jim Quinn via The Burning Platform blog,

“The main thing that I learned about conspiracy theory is that conspiracy theorists believe in a conspiracy because that is more comforting. The truth of the world is that it is actually chaotic. The truth is that it is not The Iluminati, or The Jewish Banking Conspiracy, or the Gray Alien Theory. The truth is far more frightening – Nobody is in control. The world is rudderless.” – Alan Moore

Alan Moore, the renowned graphic novel writer, and author of the dystopian classic V for Vendetta, politically identifies as an anarchist. His view that all political states are an outgrowth of anarchy, with the biggest gang taking control and dictating how things will be run, is manifested in V for Vendetta. As an anarchist, you can understand why he is doubtful of conspiracy theories and an all-powerful entity controlling the world. He believes in a chaotic world competing gangs position themselves to gain power and control.

“We live in a badly developed anarchist situation in which the biggest gang has taken over and have declared that it is not an anarchist situation – that it is a capitalist or a communist situation. But I tend to think that anarchy is the most natural form of politics for a human being to actually practice.”- Alan Moore

The Guy Fawkes mask from V for Vendetta has been adopted by anarchist groups around the world, including: Anonymous, WikiLeaks, and the Occupy protestors. Moore’s positive view of the Occupy movement was based on his belief ordinary people had the right to reclaim what had been taken from them by criminal bankers. The initial impetus for the Occupy protests was the destruction of Main Street USA by Wall Street sociopaths, who not only escaped prosecution for their crimes, but were bailed out by the taxpayers they had pillaged and further enriched as captured politicians enabled them to get even bigger.

Millions were evicted from their homes and lost their jobs. Middle class families have seen their real income continue to stagnate, while bankers, corporate executives, and politicians have reaped billions in bonuses, stock gains, and payoffs, provided by central bankers in their back pocket.

“I can’t think of any reason why as a population we should be expected to stand by and see a gross reduction in the living standards of ourselves and our kids, possibly for generations, when the people who have got us into this have been rewarded for it – they’ve certainly not been punished in any way because they’re too big to fail. I think that the Occupy movement is, in one sense, the public saying that they should be the ones to decide who’s too big to fail. As an anarchist, I believe that power should be given to the people whose lives this is actually affecting.” – Alan Moore

For those of us who visited Zuccotti Park during the early stages of the Occupy Movement, you understood this was a true populist protest with Ron Paul libertarians alongside liberal college students, old time hippies, middle aged men and women put out of work by the massive Wall Street fraud, and a myriad of citizens supporting varied causes and exercising their First Amendment rights. They were primarily focused on the true enemy – sociopathic Wall Street bankers and corrupt captured politicians. Sadly, the movement was co-opted in short order by Soros and his minions, just as the Tea Party had been co-opted by neo-cons earlier. Supposedly liberal mayors in NYC and across the country eventually unleashed their police state thugs on the protestors and wiped it out. Was this an example of chaos or conspiracy?

There isn’t an easy answer to this question. I have to lean towards Alan Moore’s view of the world. There are certainly conspiratorial schemes plotted by powerful men in smoke filled rooms, but there are other gangs of men conspiring to push their competing agendas. Conspiracy theorists who think there is one massive conspiracy controlling every aspect of the world have an extremely tough case to make. People who believe everything is part of a grand conspiracy are seeking an easy solution to our problems, rather than dealing with the complexity and chaos which is the true nature of our world. V’s speech to London after blowing up the Old Bailey explains who is really to blame for allowing Deep State actors to gain control of our government, creating an Orwellian surveillance state.

Good evening, London. Allow me first to apologize for this interruption. I do, like many of you, appreciate the comforts of the everyday routine, the security of the familiar, the tranquility of repetition. I enjoy them as much as any bloke. But in the spirit of commemoration – whereby those important events of the past, usually associated with someone’s death or the end of some awful bloody struggle, are celebrated with a nice holiday – I thought we could mark this November the fifth, a day that is sadly no longer remembered, by taking some time out of our daily lives to sit down and have a little chat.

There are, of course, those who do not want us to speak. I suspect even now orders are being shouted into telephones and men with guns will soon be on their way. Why? Because while the truncheon may be used in lieu of conversation, words will always retain their power. Words offer the means to meaning and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn’t there?

Cruelty and injustice…intolerance and oppression. And where once you had the freedom to object, to think and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance, coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission. How did this happen? Who’s to blame? Well certainly there are those who are more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable. But again, truth be told…if you’re looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror.

I know why you did it. I know you were afraid. Who wouldn’t be? War. Terror. Disease. There were a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense. Fear got the best of you and in your panic, you turned to the now High Chancellor Adam Sutler. He promised you order. He promised you peace. And all he demanded in return was your silent, obedient consent.

Last night, I sought to end that silence. Last night, I destroyed the Old Bailey to remind this country of what it has forgotten. More than four hundred years ago, a great citizen wished to embed the fifth of November forever in our memory. His hope was to remind the world that fairness, justice and freedom are more than words – they are perspectives. So if you’ve seen nothing, if the crimes of this government remain unknown to you, then I would suggest that you allow the fifth of November to pass unmarked. But if you see what I see, if you feel as I feel, and if you would seek as I seek…then I ask you to stand beside me, one year from tonight, outside the gates of Parliament. And together, we shall give them a fifth of November that shall never, ever, be forgot!

We have no one to blame but ourselves for our current state of affairs. Blaming it on some shadowy group makes us feel somehow comforted. If an all-powerful entity is controlling the world, then we can easily convince ourselves anything we do to try and change the course of history would be fruitless. Therefore, we just bitch on internet forums. The truth is fear rules the actions of the majority.

Those who constitute the Deep State are not conspiring directly by working together to rule the world and control the people. What they are doing is taking advantage of a dumbed down fearful populace by using the chaos, incompetence of institutions, and confusion spread by the propaganda press to institute their agendas. The Deep State consists of shadowy billionaires, mega-corporations, the military industrial complex, surveillance state agencies, crooked bought off politicians and their mass media mouthpieces.

Those with the financial means and access to the power of the media have embraced the Edward Bernays worldview that an invisible government of the rich and powerful is necessary to manipulate the opinions of the masses through propaganda in order for society to function smoothly. Is this truly a conspiracy or just competing gangs of rich and connected men utilizing their wealth to mold the minds of the masses in a way that continues to benefit and enrich them?

These Deep State players don’t meet every other Saturday to conspire and plot ways to pillage and enslave the masses. But they do know each other and silently agree to never rock the boat, whether they are Democrats, Republicans, liberals, conservatives, socialists, corporate executives, academics, or journalists. Money, control and power are at stake.

Those currently pulling the wires behind the scenes are conspiratorial in nature. It has become crystal clear since the election of Trump the farce of competing political parties is just a smoke screen used by the Deep State players to maintain their control. Trump’s shocking upset and seeming disregard for bowing down to the status quo has forced politicians of all persuasions to reveal their true masters. Both parties favor bloated government control of healthcare, with a medical industrial complex controlling the show, writing the rules, reaping riches, and buying off politicians. “Free” healthcare buys votes.

The flogging of the false Russian narrative by the corporate media has been used by neo-cons and ultra-libs to force Trump into the military interventionist camp – guaranteeing increased wealth for the military industrial complex. Neither party has any interest in cutting spending. The debt ceiling will be raised. The $4 trillion in annual spending will ratchet ever higher. Both sides are perfectly fine with $1 trillion deficits and $200 trillion of unfunded liabilities, as long as their gravy train keeps being fueled by the Deep State. They will spend your money until it all collapses under the mountains of debt.

Donald Jeffries explains why it is vital to the vested interests they scorn and ridicule anyone who uses factual data to prove conspiratorial intent by the government or its cancerous corporate outgrowths.

“I can remember when believing in conspiracies wasn’t cool. Now, in the second decade of the twenty-first century, more people are starting to sense that things may not be as they appear to be. The truth in Lord Acton’s classic axiom that “Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely” becomes more self-evident every day. Politicians from the only two parties we have to choose from break promises, are unresponsive to the will of the people, and opt for war, austerity measures, and state control over and over again. Gary Allen, author of the book None Dare Call It Conspiracy, defined things perfectly when he wrote, “It must be remembered that the first job of any conspiracy, whether it be in politics, crime or within a business office, is to convince everyone else that no conspiracy exists.” – Donald Jeffries – Hidden History: An Exposé of Modern Crimes, Conspiracies, and Cover-Ups in American Politics

It ultimately comes down to power and control over the key mechanisms of finance, taxation, legislation and the media. There isn’t one specific group of conspirators working together to rule the world. Is George Soros attempting to influence and control what happens in the U.S. and Europe to benefit his interests? Yes. Are the Koch brothers attempting to do the same with a different end goal? Yes. Are Pelosi and Schumer conspiring to push their left wing agenda? Yes. Are McConnell and Ryan conspiring to implement their establishment vision? Yes.

They have competing agendas, but they want the status quo to remain intact. No one within the establishment wants to change anything of substance. The current system benefits their personal interests, while destroying the lives of hard working American citizens. The country is currently run by same party with slightly different rhetoric and policies put forth by the Republican side and Democrat side. Promises are made to voters and then reneged on in short order. Therefore, no significant change ever occurs. Meanwhile, the anger and frustration build among the deplorables.

What Trump has realized quickly is how powerful the vested interests are and how ruthless they will act to retain their power. During the campaign Trump ran on a non-interventionist platform, looking to repair our relationship with Russia, scorning NATO, and lessening our involvement in the Middle East. He know rattles his saber on a daily basis, threatening war with North Korea, Venezuela, Iran, Syria and anyone else who doesn’t toe the American Empire line.

He provokes Russia and China on a regular basis. He has sent more troops to Iraq, Afghanistan, and Syria, while expanding spending on the military. Neo-cons and neo-libs don’t think Trump is being aggressive enough in policing the world. They won’t be happy until middle class boys across the land are sacrificed as cannon fodder for our welfare warfare surveillance state.

Trump bloviated about the stock market being in a bubble during the campaign when it was trading at 18,000. He now pronounces the record highs of 22,000 as proof of his brilliant economic leadership. Meanwhile, the economy has grown at less than 2% during his first six months, retailers are going bankrupt and closing stores at a record pace, consumer spending and real wages are barely growing, and consumer debt has reached all-time highs. Best time to buy, according to the Prez.

A critical thinking individual might wonder how a market could be in a bubble at 18,000 but not be in a bubble at 22,000 ten months later. During the campaign Trump accused Obama and his BLS minions of manipulating the data to make horrible jobs numbers appear strong. Now he bellows about the strong jobs market as if we’re now supposed to believe the hysterically absurd 4.3% reported rate when 101 million out of 255 million working age Americans aren’t working. And a vast majority of the jobs are either part-time and/or low paying service jobs with shitty pay and benefits.

Trump is playing the status quo Deep State game in an attempt to fend off a coup currently in progress by lying to the masses. Jobs are plentiful, consumers are confident, the economy is booming, the stock market is always right. Ignore those vacant crumbling malls, your declining disposable income as health care cost increases outpace your salary increases by a factor of five, and your ever increasing credit card balance.

Trump wouldn’t be using the tried and true method of distracting from domestic failure by starting a foreign conflict because he understands how easily manipulated the ignorant American masses can be moved by fear? Rather than draining the swamp, Trump has been forced to swim with the gators. And his own people hired a Deep State alligator hunter named Mueller who will stop at nothing to mount Trump as a trophy or force him to depart the DC swamp for the friendly environs of Manhattan Island.

Trump belittled the troll-like Yellen during the campaign, declaring her low interest policy was geared to help Obama/Clinton. He talked tough about replacing Yellen and increasing rates. He evidently got the talk from the banker cabal and he suddenly loves low interest rates and believes Yellen is doing a bang up job. He has filled his cabinet with vampire squid and other Wall Street scum. He is as beholden to the Fed and their Wall Street puppeteers as his predecessors. Wall Street remains in control, while Main Street will continue to get screwed. It’s not a conspiracy. It’s about powerful special interests capturing the levers of government.

Our government doesn’t in any way resemble its original concept of a republic. It doesn’t even resemble a democracy at this point. Since FDR and specifically since LBJ, we’ve become a welfare/warfare state. Since Bush II we’ve devolved into a corporate fascist surveillance socialist state. Despite rhetoric about free market capitalism, both parties have embraced socialism. The super-rich, bankers, corporate executives, liberals and conservatives came to the realization socialism disguised as capitalism fills their coffers at a much higher rate than true free market capitalism.

They have bought off the poor with unfunded welfare benefits, the old and poor with unfunded “free” healthcare, government union workers with unfunded pension benefits and all with unfunded social security payments. Trillion dollar annual deficits and $200 trillion in unfunded welfare promises, enabled by Federal Reserve easy money policies, does wonders for the bank accounts of Deep State players and their acolytes. Spending money you don’t have is the ultimate confidence game, but the payback will be a bitch.

“Why are the super-rich for socialism? Don’t they have the most to lose? I take a look at my bank account and compare it with Nelson Rockefeller’s and it seems funny that I’m against socialism and he’s out promoting it.” Or is it funny? In reality, there is a vast difference between what the promoters define as socialism and what it is in actual practice. The idea that socialism is a share-the-wealth program is strictly a confidence game to get the people to surrender their freedom to an all-powerful collectivist government. While the Insiders tell us we are building a paradise on earth, we are actually constructing a jail for ourselves.” – Gary Allen, None Dare Call It Conspiracy

The Deep State thrives on chaos, confusion, and complexity. Our financial system, healthcare system, entitlement systems, military, and government agencies are too big and complex to fix. Those pulling the strings don’t want the public to understand how anything operates. Supposed “experts” are put forth on the corporate propaganda networks to further confuse the masses. The purpose of government run public education is to matriculate non-thinking socially engineered consumers into the world.

The vast majority of iGadget distracted, math challenged, functionally illiterate morons will believe anything the propaganda media peddles because they are incapable of critical thinking. They have an infinite capacity for rationalizing how spending money they don’t have on things they don’t need is actually making their lives better. This same mindset keeps them from questioning how their government can run up a $20 trillion national debt (with $15 trillion added since 2000), with no adverse consequences. These debts are the ultimate threat to our survival as a nation.

Based on everything that has happened in the last twelve months, to believe this is part of some well-planned conspiracy is a reach of epic proportions. The Deep State/status quo were sure their hand-picked candidate Hillary Clinton was a shoe in. Since November the country has been roiled in election result challenges, chaotic antifa violence, fake news stories, silent coups, thousands of tweets, congressional investigations, assassination attempts on congressmen, special prosecutors, increasing odds of civil and foreign wars, and deteriorating economic conditions for the majority. Just when you thought the chaos couldn’t get more pronounced, we experienced a week of sheer turmoil and tumult. Even the stock market stopped rising for a day or two.

I’ve been observing the goings on this week with a jaundiced eye. As the rhetoric between President Cheeto and Kim Jung Nutjob has ramped up to nuclear proportions I’ve been reminded of the rhetoric and fake news leading up to the invasion of Iraq. Suddenly, confidential reports are released saying the midget dictator has miniaturized a nuclear warhead to go on top of his ICBMs that now supposedly can kill everyone in the U.S. The exaggeration of this country’s nuclear capabilities is on par with Hussein’s WMD and killing of babies in Kuwaiti hospitals.

The neo-cons smell blood and more money for their beloved arms peddlers. The propagandists have two thirds of Americans fearful of this rotund midget with an IQ of 85. Trump then set in motion his backup plan – attack Venezuela, which poses absolutely zero risk to America or our interests. But it does have the largest oil reserves on earth.

Now this weekend’s escapades in Charlottesville have worked the propaganda media into a tizzy. It’s these types of stories that reveal all the corporate media to be peddling the same narrative. Fox News was peddling the same white hate narrative as CNN and MSNBC. Because protestors with proper permits included some white supremacists, nazi sympathizers, and KKK members, all participants were branded as racists. Their right to protest regarding the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue was guaranteed by the First Amendment.

It was the violent Soros funded antifa SJWs who were bussed in to create a violent confrontation, while government officials told police to stand down and let the clashes happen. The Deep State is desirous of a race war and their media mouthpieces are busy spreading misinformation and falsehoods to further rile up the masses. Their job is to portray all flyover country whites who elected Trump as rednecks, racists and white supremacists. And at least half the country believes this fake news.

“The militia experts accuse anti-government agitants of paranoia, yet they spin around and claim that militias speak in coded phrases, have underground bunkers, and are secretly conspiring to take over the world and enslave minorities. They say it`s lunacy that men at the pentagon can conspire, yet they`re certain that farmers out on the plain are plotting as we speak. They depict the United Nations as weak and ineffectual, yet they portray raggedy-ass backwoodsmen as the world`s biggest organized military threat.” – Jim Goad, The Redneck Manifesto: How Hillbillies, Hicks, and White Trash Became America’s Scapegoats

I don’t believe what is happening in this country and around the world is some vast conspiracy. But I do believe the Deep State thrives on chaos and fear. They used 9/11 to pass the Patriot Act, creating an Orwellian surveillance state. They used the Wall Street created 2008 global financial implosion to rig the financial systems in their favor, while issuing mind boggling levels of government debt and artificially suppressing interest rates to create the largest financial bubble in world history.

I do believe we are in the midst of a Fourth Turning where the mood of the masses has turned unequivocally dark. As we approach the ninth year of this Crisis period, the intensification and potential for enormous levels of domestic and foreign bloodshed ramps up by the day. With a decade or so remaining in this period of turmoil, chaos and war, the existing social order will be swept away and replaced by something new. But not necessarily better.

Whatever Deep State conspiracies are being plotted by various gangs seeking power during this Fourth Turning, they will all rot from within.[1].jpg

Human nature never changes. Hubris and greed will lead to miscalculations and missteps which will result in another financial crash, civil chaos, and world war. Blood will be spilled in vast quantities if the wrong people make the wrong decisions. Chaos will rein for the next decade and the outcome is very much in doubt. Get prepared mentally and physically for the trials ahead.

“The risk of catastrophe will be very high. The nation could erupt into insurrection or civil violence, crack up geographically, or succumb to authoritarian rule. If there is a war, it is likely to be one of maximum risk and effort – in other words, a total war. Every Fourth Turning has registered an upward ratchet in the technology of destruction, and in mankind’s willingness to use it.” – Strauss & Howe – The Fourth Turning

Chaos theory is just a fancy way of saying "coincidence theorist" too though...isn't it?  Not everything is a grand conspiracy, but acknowledging the existence of countless "less grand" conspiracies does not make them chaos in total.  The article has some good ideas in it though.

The conspirators are not monolithic but are relatively effective conspirators nevertheless. Vendetta was about a single tyrant to be brought down but the adoption of the Guy Fawkes mask by various individuals is to bring down a system of thought the conspirators have devised and promoted, one which is supposed to turn people into satisfied slaves. The problem with this situation is what will the conspirators do with the involuntary dissatisfied slaves who wish to remain free.I think the author is trying to diffuse the unintended resistance his movie helped bring about and in effect works for those who operate from behimd the veil.

My opinion is that the above is the STUPIDEST Jim Quinn article yet ... Although some of his previous articles have been not as extremely so, and therefore, relatively more worthwhile to read, the article above was barely worth reading, and so, I tended to speed read through it ...In my view, the essential issues are that Globalized Neolithic Civilization has been based on the social successfulness built upon being able to back up lies with violence, which became more integrated systems of legalized lies, backed by legalized violence, the most important of which were became the ways that the powers of public governments enforced frauds by private banks, and the big corporations that grew up around those big banks. The essential problems were that being able to enforce frauds did not stop those from still being fundamentally fraudulent.It is both NOT true, as well as NOT relevant that:

"Human nature never changes."

"Human nature" changes relative slowly, since biological evolution takes many human generations to occur. However, cultural evolution can and did occur much faster, as demonstrated by how the series of scientific revolutions and profound paradigm shifts in physical science, particularly in mathematical physics, enabled technological developments to advance at about an exponential rate, which resulted in the human world of enforced frauds to become about exponentially more fraudulent. Metal money, backed by swords, became paper money, backed by gunpowder weapons, which became globalized electronic money frauds backed by the force of the threat of weapons of mass destruction, such as atomic weapons. Hence, although "human nature" did not have time to significantly change (and one can find very similar statements and systems in ancient Middle Eastern and Mediterranean civilizations which still relatively well apply to current situations), NOTHING in previous human history compares to the development of globalized electronic monkey money frauds, backed by the threat of force from apes with atomic bombs.In that overall context, the article above from Jim Quinn was yet another example of superficially correct analysis, which does not engage in deeper analysis regarding how and why the established systems based upon being able to enforce frauds, which were able to become about exponentially more fraudulent, are therefore spinning out of any human control, due to that exponentially increasing fraudulence becoming exponentially more psychotic.Many of the previously posted comments under the article above, and especially those which were subsequently up-voted, have correctly pointed out the roles of the international bankers, as the best organized gangsters, or the banksters, having more and more been able to dominate Globalized Neolithic Civilization, through increasing abilities to capture control over the public powers of governments, which were then used to enforce frauds, despite that doing so drove that Civilization towards becoming about exponentially more fraudulent, and thus, that overall situation is spinning out of any human control, due to the paradoxical final consequences of too much social success, achieved via the means of being able to enforce frauds, as sets of legalized lies, backed by legalized violence, inherently became increasingly psychotic, because no amount of being backed by violence ever stops those lies from still being fundamentally false.

"People who believe everything is part of a grand conspiracy are seeking an easy solution to our problems, rather than dealing with the complexity and chaos which is the true nature of our world."

Human history WAS a grand conspiracy of the development of social pyramid systems based upon being able to back up lies with violence. The ONLY connections between human laws and natural laws were the abilities to back up lies with violence. The most important manifestation of that (as correctly pointed out by several previous, mostly up-voted, comments) was the development of the dominance of the international banksters.I do not believe that perceiving those social facts (as documented here by Excellent Videos on Money Systems) leads to any "easy solutions to our problems."  On the contrary, it is people like Jim Quinn who prefer to collapse back to the comforting bullshit based upon erroneous applications of Hanlon's Razor, in order to avoid facing the ways in which human history has been dominated by warfare to drive the maximization of maliciousness. Human history has driven intensifying paradoxes, manifesting as sets of consistent contradictions, that the excessive successfulness of controlling civilization through applications of the methods of organized crime has driven civilization as a whole to develop runaway criminal insanities, which are spinning out of any human control.PARADOXICALLY,EXCESSIVELY "SUCCESSFUL" CONSPIRACIESARE ROOT CAUSES OF THE SOCIAL CHAOS.

Even the use of "koolaid" is a conspiracy.First, because it was invented to help "astronauts".Second, because it was said to be the cause of the CIA murder-op in Jonestown.I no longer use it in my speech, nor do I use "lemmings" as that was a Disney production with an off-camera turntable throwing them to their deaths.Agree completely about the rudder though!  I liked the treatment of "the Devil's greatest trick is to prove he doesn't exist" (which also includes proving that God doesn't exist) in The Usual Suspects.  Great ending.

Chaos is highly ordered, ask Mandelbrot.  He mathematically proved we live in a fractal reality.  That's why these guys keep playing the same shit show over and over and over, their method never changes.  This chaos is their order.

The biggest flaw in calling this chaos is that chaos is unpredictable but these assholes sure as hell aren't.  They will debase currencies, cause boom and bust cycles, they will do bailins, frame white people as Nazis, start constant conflict, fund terrorist armies, fund color revolutions, continue to frame Russia, continue to push for Globalism at all costs...

if there are no conspiracies than how did Hillary and the democratic party conspire against Bernie Sanders? How is every media outlet in lock step in their hysterical and relentless attacks on Trump? Where did the fake Dossier come from? How was the incubator baby hoax hatched? WMDs that never existed? Gulf of Tonkin? Operation Mockingbird? Operation Northwoods? Murder of Kennedy?nah there are no conspiracies, just the hundreds of historically confirmed ones we know about.

The truth is fear rules the actions of the majority." Jim Quinn So why does Jim Quinn write? Are we all supposed to just shut up and read and bow to the mighty Quinn?! "It’s not a conspiracy. It’s about powerful special interests capturing the levers of government. " Jim Quinn That fits the definition of a conspiracy Jim!

Let's play fill_in_the_blanks: ____ own the banks.____ own the network and print media.____ own Hollywood.____ dominate the ivy league colleges.____ directly influence the political decisions of most western governments.____ think the rest of the world's citizens are dirty, ignorant, subhumans that must be controlled and enslaved. But none dare call it conspiracy.

It's fitting that this article comes out right as a new wave of false flag bullshittery is upon us.  Crazy white extremists showing up everywhere.  It isn't over yet either.  After watching this crap for 15 years you'll notice that it usually comes in big waves.Today its a crazy white guys and federal building operation after the feds essentially admit committing entrapment (used to be illegal) just as they did with the Tasneravs.  Funny how almost all these guys are being handled and "monitored" by the feds prior to attack.  This weekend it was crazy white guy kills "Anti-Fascists".  It's so ludicrous that it's almost funny.It's already out that the US funded ISIS.  That must really suck for coincidence theorists.

The second people start to realize that it's the banks and start closing in on them this is the shielding propaganda you're going to see. Banking conspiracy = Aliens = illuminati.Nice try.I'd really like to hear about these powers, outside of China, Iran and Russia, that are in the running for power with the big banks.  I'd like to hear who is their big competition when it comes to controlling the MSM.  The Koch brothers?  Yeah right. Then he states that people just bitch on forums as if that is meaningless.  The alt-right and the bitching on blogs has been the only opposition to the obvious lock down somebody has on the media.  It's made a huge difference.I'll be waiting to hear all about who exactly is is the rivals the powers of the banks in this country.

Here's a conspiracy... Notice the Black man in the center of the picture with the red sneakers and red exposed underwear.… Now watch this 5 second video from a different angle where at :04 seconds in, that same Black man in the red sneakers and red exposed underwear is seen jumping down off the truck onto the sidewalk as the car passes. Can someone explain how he got from flying through the air in the above picture to lounging on the hood of a truck?  :21 seconds.  Recognize that red high top? Continuity is a bitch.

Yes, the idea that there is a single conspiracy controlling everything is, as Terrence McKenna suggested, an epistemological cartoon. However, there certainly are very real conspiracies afoot, and have been for years. What we have is basically a clusterfuck of competing conspiracies that coalesce and compete with each other as situations change and these crime syndicates position themselves to maximize their perceived advantage as situations arise.
