So I finally decided to start my first thread.
After a few years of just reading different threads and trying to educate myself,
I thought it was time to contribute more here on ATS.
I'm a late bloomer what can I say...
Originally I was going to dedicate this entire thread to Bill Hicks but
after I started thinking about it, I realized this went much deeper.
I know there are threads here on ATS that discuss these topics
but not necessarily all tied together.
(If there is then I apologize so be easy on me!)
As some of you may or may not know, the comedian Bill Hicks died
of pancreatic cancer at the early age of 32.
This is EXTREMELY rare as the average age that folks usually get this type of cancer is 72.
(as ATS member "zerozero00" points out here,
Hicks was not your average comedian in the sense that he talked about issues that
most comedians wouldn't touch. (especially back then)
He often joked about this and credited it to him being virtually unknown in the US.
Bill was very much into conspiracy theories,crooked governments,
the JFK assassination and he even drove out to Waco during
the stand off between the ATF and David Koresh.
He would talk about all of this during his stand up.
Bill was also into UFO's
(which he actually had a UFO experience with his best friend, Kevin Booth),
His mission was to bring awareness to people and for them to think for themselves.
What's amazing is his message is still being carried out to this day.
Most of what he talked about then is still relevant today.
All though I don't have concrete evidence to prove this,
I think there may have been more to his death then what meets the eye.
He may have been taken out for obvious reasons.
After I started digging more, I thought about Bob Marley, JFK, Lincoln,
John Lennon,Martin Luther King and many,many more
people who all shared the same fate.
All of these public figures who challenged the government and/or
tried to bring awareness to the people either were assassinated
or died under mysterious circumstances.
Is this just a coincidence? Can we just shine it off as, "that's life, we all die"?
Or is there more to this? Did the government possibly have something to do
with these deaths?
I find Bob Marley's death really bizarre as well.
Here is a man that died at the age of 36 supposedly stemming
from "toe cancer".
It just so happens that Marley died right after touring in America. (eight months later)
I may be wrong but wasn't the US government keeping tabs on Marley?
We now know that the US government was keeping tabs on Lennon.
We also know that they feared Lennon because of the impact
and influence he had on the people.
The FBI was tapping his phones and keeping a close watch on Lennon
Or how about Kennedy? We all know the different theories that surround his death.
However I find it interesting that just six months prior to his death, he signed executive order, 11110.
This order would of possibly eliminated the Federal Reserve.
This would of been HUGE. Not to mention a huge blow
to the privatized banking cartels that control the FR.
Judging from history, it seems these baking cartels will go to
any length to stay in control of the money system.
It's a similar situation with Lincoln and the issue of Greenbacks.
Both Kennedy and Lincoln had concerns over centralized banks
controlling America's money system.
You can even tie this in to the way the media and Republicans treated Ron Paul.
Paul also shared the same views as Kennedy regarding the Federal Reserve.
Considering what happened to Kennedy and Lincoln,
it makes perfect sense(to me) why the RNC wouldn't even say Ron Paul's name.
It makes sense that the media did everything in their power
to barely mentioned Ron Paul at all.
What were they afraid of?
Possibly Paul bringing awareness to more Americans and shedding
light on scams like the Federal Reserve?
Do you think if Ron Paul would of actually become president,
he would of even made it past a year?
I suppose it was easier for the government to commit fraud then to knock Ron Paul off.
So I guess what I'm getting at is if you were just talking about one case then
none of this would seem like that big of a deal.
People die everyday under weird and bizarre circumstances
However when you look at these cases together,
it just seems unlikely that they're all a coincidence.
I don't care if you're a believer or a debunker,
you can not overlook this or just shine it off as a coinkydink
Now with the Patriot Act and the fact that people are being
arrested for posting things on facebook, it seems like it's getting worse.
Not just with public figures but now anyone who speaks out against the government.
I'm curious what your thoughts are.
For the debunkers, do you think that there's nothing more to these deaths?
The fact that all these people who went against the grain have all died under weird circumstances .
Yet Bush, Cheney,Rumsfeld, Carrot Top, Toby Keith, Oliver North,
Rush Linbaugh,etc are all alive and well.
(I'm joking but I'm not; )
Honestly, do you have to be a conspiracy theorist to see that this just doesn't add up?
Again, if this has already been talked about then I apologize
On a funny note, I'll leave you with this,
