It’s been a stressful week here at Casa Blaskiewicz. While I have gotten used to a certain sort of stress in the last week or so, I now turn the one thing that allows me to decompress so rapidly that I almost get the bends, the Week in Conspiracy. Honestly, there was not a lot this week. Maybe this is a sign that we are coming to our collective senses? (I’m not holding my breath.)
- This week, Sherwood Ross wrote, “Only Ron Paul Warns of Emerging Fascist State,” which suggests to me at least that he too is willing to scare the ever-loving shit out of his constituency to get their vote. It’s an old propaganda technique: people will always buy safety, even if the vendor has to invent the danger out of whole cloth.
- Person actually elected to office claims that the Girl Scouts are a lesbian paramilitary wing of Planned Parenthood. Silly, that’s 4H.
- Here’s an old one that’s new to me: JFK committed suicide.
- Massive Alien Pyramid at Area 51, apparently. I checked out Google Earth and there is nothing remotely like it at the site as far as I can see. Check to see if I missed something.
- Conspiracy theories surrounding the President made it into a Washington Post column this week. For the record, the author is against misleading and unproductive criticism. Take, for instance, this Freeman on the Moon guy who says that Obama cant be president because he is…”mulatto.”
- Here’s a history of the Rothchilds written by someone who has never met an honest history book in his life. The “false Jews who are actually Khazars” trope is a precursor to the type of rationalization of Christian Identity theology, that the “Jews” are imposters claiming the Chosen People status properly owned by the white American Christian male.
- Federal Jack continues apace, suggesting that Flights 175 and 11 were flown by remote control. I don’t see why experiments with remote controlled flight necessarily entail RC on 9/11. It’s like the opening of Loose Change, where they show the plans for Operation Northwoods but then fail to connect it with 9/11.
- Efforts to educate GOP politicians about the reality of anthropogenic climate change have been futile. This during a week when Santorum said that climate change was a hoax, essentially, a huge conspiracy.
- AE911Truth this week had a charming healing this week: “AE911Truth Action Groups Go ‘Postal’.” I know they’re talking about postcards, but still, do you want to suggest that you are unhinged and dangerous in a press release? Fire whoever came up with that headline.
- I love this one: “Claim: Alien Technology in Fort Knox.” Claims are great, but where’s your evidence?
- Lou Dobbs claims that The Lorax is an attempt by Hollywood liberals to indoctrinate our children. Very Red Scare, Lou.
- First Whitney was murdered. Mariah Carey is next, apparently. This is one by the Prophet Lind Newkirk. Yikes. Anyway, she channels the Lord who confirms this scenario. I love it how God always dictates in “fake ye Olde” English. Hell, look at the Book of Mormon, what with all the “yea it came to pass-es.”
- Surprise, surprise. Glenn Beck’s gold dealers have received a multimillion dollar fine for being a big scam. Plus, a fun Mitchell and Webb video.
- Willie “Crazy as a Koot” Nelson says that we must “occupy our food,” whatever the that means. Doesn’t sound sanitary.
- Guy who was in the Army blows the Masonic control of the military wide open from his garage!
- Worst prophecy ever is confirmed by Hubble Space Telescope. Saith the Dead Dead Sea Scrolls:
“To whom will you compare me? Who is my equal?” asks the Holy One. “Look up into the heavens. Who created all the stars? He brings them out like an army, one after another, calling each by its name. Because of his great power and incomparable strength, not a single one is missing.”
So, uh. Apparently there are lots of stars, and…that’s what Hubble found, against all expectation, I imagine. Of course, stars devoured by black holes might be “missing,” but saying that would just be sinking to their level.
- I recognize all the words in the following headline but I don’t understand them in that order. “Manipulative Extraterrestrials: The Male God spawns archons to vanquish the Female God-Energy of Humans.”
- Santorum, Obama, and a Satanic conspiracy. From Mother Jones.
- Oh no. What will become of my precious twitter feed? (@rjblaskiewicz) “EMP strike expected in the US.”
Conspiracy Theory of the Week
Two were notable this week.
- Eve sent me the first: Alex Jones claims that juice boxes make you gay. I wonder if they are also responsible for moobs?
- The second is a clip from the Daily Show, where Lewis Black discusses ghoulish subnorm Nancy Grace’s assertions that Whitney Houston was murdered. Lewis Black is hit or miss sometimes, but he is spot on here.
That’s it for now. I’m heading back down the mine shaft to work on another piece, which is growing to rather biggish proportions. Let’s just say I’m “brushing up on my archaic French.”
