Here is something I posted to my blog in late January early February of this year. It was right around this time that I started noticing a massive
uptick in Obama conspiracy threads. It’s a bit wordy, but you might find it somewhat interesting.

It's the end of the world as we know it: Part I
So I like to keep up with offbeat news, you know conspiracy theories, aliens and Bigfoot kind of stuff. I’m fascinated by how they’re started, how
they’re perpetuated and by those who don’t just believe them, but actually treat them like a religion. For them facts, common sense and Occam’s
Razor mean nothing. Instead, it’s all about faith.
There are two big areas being mined for conspiracy theories these days: the approach of the year 2012, when many people believe the Mayan calendar
) predicts the world will end; and the election of President Barak Obama, who many
people believe is the pawn of a secret group of world leaders often referred to as the New World Order.
The 2012 theory varies from conspiracy to conspiracy. Some see the end of the Mayan calendar, which is in and of itself debatable
) as the Catholic Apocalypse. Others see a catastrophic event like a meteor hitting the earth, and some
believe that it won’t be just a meteor but an entire planet (answers.yahoo.com...
) colliding with us.
It is said that astronomers are either silenced by the government or they can’t see the meteor/planet because it is behind our sun.
Conspiracy’s concerning President Obama revolve mostly around him being a pawn of the NWO and using his cult of personality to create a totalitarian
state in much the same way Hitler did in Nazi Germany. Apparently with Obama in power, citizens will be stripped of their right to bear arms
), a civilian police force will be created
), martial law will
be declared and our evil alien overlords will be allowed to feast on us like cattle.
Okay, that last part is a bit of a joke…or is it?
Mr. David Icke (en.wikipedia.org...
) a one time footballer now rabid conspiracy theorist, believes that many of the world’s
leaders, including Britain ’s late Queen Mother and George Bush are actually Reptoids. For those not in the know, Reptoids are reptilian beings from
another galaxy that eat human flesh. On the subject of Icke, he’s sure that Obama and his “controllers” are pulling a fast one
) over on the world and that we’ll be goose-stepping and having our brains eaten by our Reptoid masters
even before the 2012 comet reduces us to space dust.
Icke isn’t the only one convinced were heading towards certain doom. Well known warrior against the New World Order, Alex Jones
(radio)) is so sure he’s releasing a movie (www.youtube.com...
) on the coming Obama
nightmare. His thoughts mirror Icke’s, minus the carnivorous Reptoids, and end with rebellious citizens being imprisoned in concentration camps
) in Colorado. According to Jones, the children of our country are
already being indoctrinated in ways (www.prisonplanet.com...
) similar to the Nazi
Facts, theories and logic aside I’m left with two questions: “towards what end? and “why now?”
