Possible Conspiratorial Reason for Shutdown: Distraction?

I made the observation on another post somewhere; I don’t recall when and where, that from a NWO theorist perspective the shutdown may be some major distraction to bury another issue under the torrent of publicity by the MSM of the shutdown.

Of course one can never prove any of these globalist conspiracies but in this case a good possibility for the idea of the buried story is that apparently Russian intelligence is coming out with unequivocal proof that he Syrian chemical attack was done by a small radical group sponsored by Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabian Backed Insurgents Responsible for Ghouta Chemical Weapons Attack?

“Russia has evidence proving it. More on that below. A previous article said the following: On August 29, Mint Press News headlined “Exclusive: Syrians in Ghouta Claim Saudi-Supplied Rebels Behind Chemical Attack,” saying:”

Saudi Arabia Group behind Chemical Weapons Provocation in Syria: Source

“A group sent by Saudi Arabia from Jordanian territory is responsible for the August 21 chemical weapons provocation that was staged in the Eastern Ghouta suburb of Damascus, said Russian diplomatic sources. “Having analyzed this information, which was received from a whole range of sources, we are getting a picture that confirms that the criminal provocation in Eastern Ghouta was committed by a specialized group that was sent by Saudi Arabia from the territory of Jordan and acted under the cover of the Liva al-Islam group,” one of the sources said.”

From this perspective, with Boehner being the front man for the shutdown (recall he was all for bombing Syria, of course Obama would be in on the op) and it being practically entirely in his hands it appears this hypothetical black op of distraction could be easily managing Boehner’s stubborn actions in this shutdown to meet their agenda of hiding and burying the above stories, of course, along with the MSM who could be relied on not to pursue this story, the shutdown has all but guaranteed that the story out of Russia will remain buried.

Most of us realize that this kind of burying of stories is done all the time, though again it is always next to impossible to have a smoking gun to prove this, nevertheless most astute observers believe that this kind of stuff is done all the time in managing the medias attention.

Also, the Syrian incident was a rare occasion where the people came together, right and left wing, to challenge the elite and stopped the sure to occur intervention by US bombs in the Syrian war. In this case the hypothetical distraction spy-op would have another benefit with the shutdown in inflaming the usual political divisions of the country along partisan lines, something that was broken down in the massive opposition to intervention in Syria by the American people.

In short, the Shutdown is and was a spy-op to again confirm the partisan divisions in the country, as well to bury the facts of the Syrian chemical attack hitting the MSM.

If this is the case then it can be relied upon that the shutdown and related budget deadline of the 17th will garner all the attention of the media and the Syrian story will be buried in the avalanche.

I gotta say if TPTB are allowing their entire US system to crash and burn just to stop US MSM from broadcasting evidence blaming the Saudis of the attack, well, then they're just fracking dumbasses.

...the shutdown may be some major distraction to bury another issue...

Maybe they shut down all the parks so the corporations can go in and frack and log out the places "set aside" to preserve them for the people.

You know they want in to do that stuff everywhere there is money to be made.

IMO its not even remotely a nefarious plot or conspiracy. Its much more simple and idiotic than that.

I truly believe that our leaders and representatives are as assinine and moronic to play king of the hill while the country falls. They're just THAT narcissistic and pathological.

The reason for the shutdown is that Obama is unwilling to negotiate, and the democrat/progressive wing feels that Obamacare is more important than funding the country.

My explanation is they maxed out the National credit card. Nothing more or less. That alone is scary enough, the possible outcomes being devaluation of the dollar on currency markets, our credit rating plunging below that of Guatemala and another crash of the stock market.

Did I mention that derivatives bubble floating around in cyberspace? This is sending shock waves throughout the world. All the OPEC nations rely heavily on the USD and they are not happy.

I'm beginning to think many of these other conspiracy-related stories of late such as comet ISON, DHS buildup, Yellowstone cauldera heating up etc are really just smokescreens to keep us from focusing on how bad our economic situation truly is. Being dependent upon ever-increasing debt we may have reached a point where we can no longer count on growth to spread that debt and consequently the whole ponzi scheme is threatening to crash in upon itself. All very neatly timed to the 100 year anniversary of the Federal Reserve. Coincidental?
