We are all slaves to the elite monetary controllers. We are trapped by the monetary system. Governments work within the confines of this monetary system defined by the elite. Repub/Dem debating the different solutions gives people the impression that it is possible to live in an ideal world if the politicians made the right moves. The reality is the United States is the land of opportunity where anybody can make millions and earn financial freedom, but as a whole, the people are slaves to the debt system.

Everyone says this, but I think the real key to what happened is the calling off of the New York Air National Guard from intercepting the jets. Nobody discusses this call made from the VP's office since Scooter Libby got busted for obstruction.

Well, personally, I'm confused as to the question in the OP.

I mean, this is a conspiracy site. Most of us belong here because we believe many conspiracies are actual truths.

It's like asking people at the checkout line at a chocolate shop if they like chocolate, or people running in a marathon if they believe exercise is healthy.

The majority of those who believe in conspiracy theories don't even realize they are the dumbest people on the face of earth.


The phrase "conspiracy theory" is the first thing the media and the politicians say whenever anyone questions their actions. It isn't working as well anymore because they wore it out to ridiculousness.
The next thing they say is the same as what you said above, when just using the phrase "conspiracy" isn't working for them.

It is natural for them and status quo loving extremists who support all forms of corruption in their leaders, because of the cookies they hand out, to react this way when their corrupt activities are discovered. It makes their supporters mad as well since it threatens those free cookies and perceived government hand outs. That's also a conspiracy that they are subsidies, when they are really bribes to get more supporters to ignore their crimes.

First they call it a "conspiracy theory", then they call their accusers the dumbest people on the face of the earth when they get caught. Remember Hillary? You learned her lessons well, but I doubt she is going to love you more for it. And I think this in itself is a conspiracy theory that just happens to be 100 percent true.


First of all, as a non-American, I am not a conspiracy-minded over-suspicious guy who sees enemies everywhere.

When I say the majority of those who believe in conspiracy theories are the dumbest people on earth, I mean those who driven by paranoia are not able to search hard for reliable and objective evidence when confronted with dubious and controversial affairs, but rather make hasty judgments and allegations according to the ‘Who benefits?’ pattern.

You have probably heard of the spinach and iron myth. It was mistakenly thought that "spinach contains significantly more iron than other green vegetables. The source behind the myth was a study from the 1930s which misplaced a decimal point and thus made it appear as if spinach contained ten times as much iron as it really did" (Wikipedia). The farmers who happened to cultivate lands in the regions with mild climate gained the advantage over the others and reaped the benefits of that study for many decades. Was it a conspiracy?

Now let me tell you something about your reply. Maybe you are not aware of the shallowness of many conspiracy theories around today, but the way you are responding indicates that you are insecure and looking for a safe space.

That's okay.

All opinions are welcomed on this site.

And I only said it 'may' be true.

This is a new one for people to consider: The 5G Network and it's capabilities.
The 5G network is coming out and will be using "millimeter wave" technology and frequency bandwidth much higher than ever before. It will be linking all "Smart" systems and collecting/ transmitting much larger amounts of data than ever before possible. This technology will be used to advance the AI of the Internet at a speed formerly impossible.
Think SKYNET, from the Terminator movies....

You are wrong of course. The phrase "conspiracy theory" was invented by the American Central Intelligence Agency and inserted into news media at their bequest when the CIA installed their own agents and implanted them at all the major media main offices. Their job was to monitor and check all news stories and edit them to conform to that agenda. News reporters couldn't just publish anything they wanted without approval. The CIA did this because a lot of the things the government was doing were being done against what good citizens would approve of if they knew about them.
CIA invented term conspiracy theory

Now that you know the truth, perhaps you can rise above this falsehood, this grand deception created to keep the masses from getting to big for their britches. That is why they did it. Psychological warfare. You have to be willing to be truly informed to not be a victim of this war, and it is a war with more victims than any other. The real wacky conspiracy type of stories only helped to run cover for all the rest of them, and lump them all in the same big pile. Covering up the true ones in the process.

You are wrong. The Oxford English Dictionary cites a 1909 article in The American Historical Review as the earliest usage example of the term 'conspiracy theory'.

I guess you might not be paying attention to what I said about it. It doesn't matter when it actually first was said or used, what matters is that the CIA saw a great opportunity for using the term as a deception and incorporate it into modern use to implement power over people to keep them compliant and obedient by fear of ridicule. And it has been done on such a grand scale globally, especially with western allies. Now anyone who just whispers against government, or government figures in public, will be branded a crazy conspiracy theorist. Hillary even used it blatantly to deflect away accusers when she was guilty as hell. And time has now proven it out.

What you are trying to explain is partly, but not completely true. The lack of serious thought on the part of theorists and a popular tendency to be ready to believe whatever explanation that was offered have played a good part in this manipulation.

What is a conspiracy theory that I think is true?

I.theorize that my dog conspires against me when she shows the urgent need to be let out during a pivotal scene of what ever I am watching..her motive you ask?..how dare I pay more attention to something else than her...

I am absolutely positive of her conspiracy to seek out and roll in every pile of game fowl scat this side of the mountain..her motive you ask?.. she loves being dried off with the towel after her bath...


Respectfully,
~meathead

Notice how they argue around these parts? Why is it such a big deal for some people to accept a few corrections as to what they're arguing for instead of immediately feeling the need to go into 'defense'-mode rather than acknowledge that a statement such as:

The phrase "conspiracy theory" was invented by the American Central Intelligence Agency...

is incorrect? One could also wonder if even after your response that phrase will continue to be used because apparently:

It doesn't matter when it actually first was said or used...

Uhm, it does if one wants to be truthful/accurate and honest about who invented the term. Or reasonable about it. No need to avoid having to acknowledge that something one said is wrong/inaccurate/incorrect/untruthful. Then you might just end up demonstrating parts of 2 Timothy 3:1-5. Which is nice too in a way, but not that useful for oneself at least until one realizes what that implies regarding the source of the information in the bible about what's happening to people and why they are behaving and arguing in the manner that they are, usually about trivialities such as this one.

The majority of those who believe in conspiracy theories don't even realize they are the dumbest people on the face of earth.

I don't think so but that subject is a bit 'in the eye of the beholder'-stuff anyway. Hard to quantify, what measure or standard of wisdom would one want to apply to that? IQ-tests don't test for wisdom either. Depending on what standard or measurements one uses, I think there are plenty of candidates that might be more worthy of the description "the dumbest people on the face of earth". Especially when certain arguments are made intentionally for personal motives that I don't really want to get into right now (acting dumb or ignorant, or intentionally faking it included, which doesn't make one any more wise than those who might be described as "dumb" in certain circles of self-professed intellectuals):
