You thought that you could slip by while I was at Skepticamp, didn’t you, you little conspiracy theories? Well, it’s not that easy. I’m ever vigilant and on the case. This week brought more grotesque news analysis from the goof-o-sphere. Let’s get into it.
- The release date of the movie that I suspect will make everyone just a little bit dumber, Anonymous, which is about Shakespeare authorship (hint: it was Shakespeare), has been pushed back. It now opens on October 28. You bet your pants we’re going to review it when it comes out.
- The Bilderbergers met over the last week. Here’s TIME’s article, which will give you a sense of what happens there.
- Speaking of the Bilderbergers, there was speculation that Hillary Clinton was going to take over the world bank, you know, because she is such a pawn of the power elite.
- Also, the Bilderberger list was leaked. Ironically, if Alex Jones had just read it, he’d have seen he finally got an invite.
- Oh, and there was an admission by an anonymous source that male prostitutes were shipped in to the meeting by the crate. Oh, Anonymous, is there anything you can’t confirm?
- Radiation is mutating the rabbits around Fukishima! Or a rabbit! Or possibly it’s mother chewed it’s ears off, because that happens sometimes!
- Runaway! It’s the Pharmageddon!
- Is NATO dumping depleted uranium radiation on Libyan babies.
- Richard Gage is on his European Tour. I believe he is opening for the Toad the Wet Sprocket.
- Richard got onto Irish television while he was in Europe. But he should still be focusing on engineers if he wants to convince me.
- I love this remark in the comments of this video. The irony is deep and hilarious, even if the person who penned it is defective: “JEWS ARE THE MOST RACIST, HATEFUL PEOPLE ON THE PLANET.” Touche.
- Above Top Secret admits its religion boards are a nightmare of bickering and uselessness.
- Conspiracy theorists outside Bilderberg meeting sing Happy Birthday to David Rockefeller, but I don’t think they mean it.
- Is the deadly fungus in Joplin linked to secret morgues and the Gulf Oil Spill?
- Is the e coli outbreak in Germany is actually an excuse to irradiate food. No, it’s a reason to. When you apply cui bono thinking to this situation, you get a rotten conspiracy.
- Carl Sagan would be delighted/horrified. The dodecahedron rises again!
- Ding-a-ling with more money than sense goes to look for bin Laden’s body.
- Bill Cooper and the Satanic 9/11 Illuminati thingy!
- Cloud computing is an excuse to take over the Internet?
- Cynthia McKinney skipped the Atlanta truth gig to go to Libya, and then interviews with Russia Today. (Facepalm.)
- And this is as close as 9/11 Truthers are ever going to get to actually seeing a report showing that they were right all along.
Conspiracy theory of the week.
For me, it was hands down “Palin birtherism.” It’s the idea that Sarah Palin pretended to have a child…for some reason. It made it into Skepticamp Atlanta, and I’m still irritated with annoyance and irritation. So, the Palin emails were released in the last few days, and they talk about this issue. And her office was clearly befuddled by the allegations. And I resent having to defend Sarah Palin on any point, but you have to be fair. As Eve just said over my shoulder, because she did a long series of stupid things while leaking (radiator?) fluid, that does not mean that she was never pregnant.
Man, I was annoyed.
