Its so hot right now because the most powerful nation on earth is close to falling in hands of crazy , unhinged leftists. 2020 is the year we see their true colors and what lengths they will go to for power...

after trump wins in nov. the interest in politics will fade...


it's game 7 playoffs . series tied. Last end of the stretch.


Wait. Is Vatican city having issues? Why don't we see that in here and only dumb murican stuff is discussed?

I'm not sure why all these complaints about politics and conspiracies. The conspiracies were always about politics. The nwo, one world government, illuminati #, globalism, that # is all politics. What conspiracy isn't about politics? Conspiracies have always been tied to politics.

The thing is nowadays, it's not really a conspiracy, it's all just kind of in the open.

I mean what non-political conspiracy do you wish to engage in discourse on? Why not make a thread about it instead of complaining?

Many of the political threads here, are fed as distractions.
If you are letting yourself be distracted by them : they're working.
Think about it.
Your attention span, is this that is : right now.

Step-away for a couple of days.
Read some books.
Listen to stuff like this :



Jed McKenna - The Ministry of Awakening from Spiritual Warfare .

Don't worry.
Be happy !

It's the same old thread repeated over and over.



I came to a website as a leftist wanting to talk about UFO's.

However, I soon found that I was not comfortable because the topics were about politics too.

On a conspiracy website.

In a time and place where we currently have the biggest political conspiracy happening in American history.

But I'm on the wrong side of it and have no real echo chamber to relax in.

I can't actually control myself and find that I am often in political threads and am unhappy about what people are talking about.

I can't really debate the facts but I don't like them.

SoOoo...

I will post a rant about how unhappy I am about that.

Even though I don't make my own threads about UFO's because... it takes time.



Wash, Rinse, Repeat...

I have a conspiracy theory.

I think the government saw ATS and figured, "This site needs to be discredited." So they hacked some old inactive accounts, added some new users, and started posting politically polarizing threads. Whether these threads are very stupid or very thought provoking, they are designed to get as many replies as possible.

Now, whenever a true conspiracy theory comes up, there are options. You can have posters dismiss the post as partisan politics. You can have posters simply state that its a fraud with nothing to support that conclusion. Or, you can just bury the post under a deluge of meaningless political threads. Anything to get people to stop talking about it and forget it.

Notice they do the same thing in the MSM. This year, the government released official footage from a Navy Carrier of a UFO. Any other time, that would be the news of the decade. What is the media talking about?

Let's put it this way, you guys aren't exactly the easiest to engage. One wrong source, question or opinion and select members in opposition will derail or close the thread.

And to be real, search engines are anything but that anymore. (Duckduckgo and hoohaws, still going to get "clickbait articles" instead of forums or actual quotes posted on obscure websites.)

Someone mentioned that most of the none political stuff is fake, but admitted that some are real. What's really going on if you admit some IS real, but yet you know more about a politicians high school life, then being able to share information with other humans around the globe who've had first hand experiences.

I'm just a long time lurker, living with Asperger's and all the issues with socializing with it, so maybe it's just me feeling that it's a bit hard to really look into "Non-main stream conspiracies". Sheesh, we really at that point where certain conspiracies are non mainstream?

But I'm trying to stick my feet in, I got my own personal intuition about what's going on or the troubles that may be ahead.

I'm slow, but trying. Most of this may seem rambling or not relevant. Sorry.

Hopefully after November the politics starts taking a back seat again.

I don't know what you're talking about.

Back in 2009, I joined ATS in anticipation of Trump's victory.

It took a few years but here we are!

The internet is a strange place...

We are very protected on here, so it's much easier to say whatever you want.

I feel the internet encourages debating and arguing because it will bring out the extremes in people.

So a topic like politics is perfect for the enitre internet, everywhere.

People can feel like they are fighting for what they believe in. Say things they could not in public.

I just hope young people are not consumed by it.

Throughout highschool I was having so much fun I didn't care what a Republican or Democrat was.

My original reason for joining ATS was a political one, although I had been lurking for the paranormal X-Files type content. At the time the politics were mostly important things that were actually real issues. It wasn't a left vs right deal back then, more like the people against the man infringing on our rights.

After awhile, for me, ATS became a clearing house for news stories that often showed up here before the MSM reported on it. But eventually even those stories became over shadowed by the political crap. The makeup of membership changed too, it seems, to more of a political minded group.

It seems unavoidable these days, and as it was pointed out early in this thread, all CTs lead back to a government somewhere, hence all the politics.
