Am I the only one that sees these adds? To me this is weird as Fema has been tied into the NWO conspiracy and many other conspiracies on this site. Yes I understand that ATS needs to make money from advertisements, but really?? FEMA??

ATS should have ads from NWO, The Seekers, Fukushima, Lockheed & Martin, DARPA, CIA, CSEC, CSIS, MI5, MI6, FBI, DHS, Central banks or any other criminal Elitest organisations. Do you see what I mean? Granted some of those are far-fetched, yes, but if your going to advertise for one you may as well have ads from every other major conspiracy organization.

Im not trying to cut ATS down but why is this organization (that is linked to NWO, D.U.M.B's, Concentration camps and Martial Law etc) allowed to advertise on a conspiracy site that is loaded with people who believe that FEMA is an evil organization?

Could this be a Psychological tool? or could it be like a subliminal message? because we usually ignore the adds, but our brain may pick up on it subconsciencly if its on the screen...

In the end this is just a rant. Just me blowing off steam. Its just ironic to me and does not seem right.
I understand that ATS makes it clear that the views and opinions on this site are that of the individuals and not from ATS. I know that kind of answers my questions but it is an interesting topic don't you think?

ATS isn't specifically selecting FEMA ads to run. It looks like they use AdChoices and/or GoogleAds.

I just had an ad for an Elton John concert from TicketsNow. I clicked on the AdChoices icon, and this is what I got:

I have no interest in Elton John. You probably have no interest in FEMA. But based on "anonymous data" AdChoices thinks you are interested in FEMA.

You can opt out of the ads... but why give them even more information?


I totally get your rant, though. This kind of ad technology often produces wildly inappropriate ads for the webpages they appear on.

yeah! I don't like ads from BMW because that's an elitist brand. And I don't like ads from Jeep, and what's this with ads from smokey the bear? The Ad Council is a known front for the NWO. And Shindigz? WTF is that?!? It's candy! It rots your teeth! And it's a conspiracy! In fact, if you don't remove these ads I am outta here and THAT will show you!

I am fine with Fema and other NWO organizations paying for me to complain about them and prove them incorrect/unconstitutional in their policies... why not?

Besides, if you stopped going to the FEMA website they would stop wanting to tell you how great they are! FEMA doesn't advertise to me here, but I am getting new pocket artillery cannon ads! Too cool...



Yes... Yes... been shopping!

Yes, ads are a informational psychology tool - one designed to either make you feel good, satisfy a problem you're having, scare you, show problem/solution matrix, introduce new things, make you feel part of group, celebrate your individuality, ect... They exist to make money for the purchaser of the ad.

Here look at subliminal messages in corporate logos, they exist: www.businessinsider.com...

I think to your point though, you have a cookie on your machine from visiting the FEMA site, now you get ads from them.

If you go to the bottom of the page and you click on the "advertise with ATS" button it brings you to a page that basically asks companies to advertise on this site. They talk about how they have a team of people that can create banners and other ads. Go ahead click it and read it. I am not making this up.

The FEMA ad you saw - I take it it didn't have a logo for GoogleAds or AdSense or some other company? As in, it looked like a directly ad placed and hand-picked by ATS and not generated by ad software?
