I’ve been flitting about the country in rental cars for the last couple of weeks, so I’ve amassed a rather largish backlog of entries for this week’s roundup. Enjoy…IF YOU DARE!
Conspiracy Theory of the Week
This week, I am so mad, so singularly and completely angry, that I am going to skip the foreplay and get right down to business. Mike Adams is a horrible, horrible person. The world is just that much worse for his having been born. This week, this shameless crank of obscene proportions penned an exploitative, factually bereft piece called: “A Hundred Trayvons a Day – Why the Real Murder of Blacks is Carried Out by Pharmaceutical Companies, Vaccines and Cancer Clinics.” In this piece he says that AIDS anti-retrovirals destroy the immune system (what if someone ever takes that seriously?), that the government is practicing eugenics, and that drug companies are illegally experimenting on black people. Mike, you are a broken human. Something is dramatically wrong with your mind, and I have finally come across a human for whom I can’t even muster pity. Pathetic.
- The Trayvon Martin case has brought out the worst in a lot of people. Take the headline: “Obama Leading a Lynch Mob Against Zimmerman.” Get it? Also, the Black Panthers have issued a fatwah on Zimmerman, who would probably be safer in jail. Now, following revelations that this unarmed kid, who was shot dead in the street, was suspended from school, the racist backwash that I always suspected populated CT circles are whooping about how black, er, dangerous he was. So is the Business Insider, which apparently took images from Stormfront…freaking Stormfront…as evidence that the media was deliberately painting a specific, sanitized image of Treyvon. Not like Stormfront would ever do that. The Columbia Journalism Review notes that the Business Insider has had a hard time, apparently, taking that image down. At Godlike Productions, this was just the fulfillment of the long-awaited race war. Before It’s News decided that ABC took the film of Zimmerman as evidence that ABC was “disappearing” evidence of Zimmerman’s beating at the hands of the Skittle-wielding maniac. (I just don’t think the video is clear enough to be useful.)
- Here’s a remarkably unreflective piece, even for Godlike Productions, a list of the things that the New World Order has utterly failed to do. Given as they are an invisible group that accomplishes nothing, why would one exclude existing from this list?
- Here’s a clever/novel one: What if our own secret powers are being used against us to make horrible things happen? Well played, ding dong. I like it!
- It’s a game changer for Ron Paul’s novelty campaign, now that Korn frontman Jonathan Somethingorother endorses him.
- We live in a great country, where even the mentally ill can participate in the political process.
- Remember how the sun was exploding last week? Well, somehow FEMA is involved. Really.
- Apparently time is speeding up. I’m not even sure what that could possibly mean or how we could tell.
- Oh noes! The CIA is waging war on my consciousness!
- And now for your moment of despair: “I like Ancient Aliens.”
- An FBI memo from 1947 reveals that the government knows a lot more about aliens than they have been saying. My favorite part of the document is the parenthetical: “The present writer has several university degrees and was formerly a university department head.” Let’s say it’s a real document. Why not? It is dated less than three weeks after the term “flying saucer” was coined in the press following a sighting of something strange at Mt. Rainier. The topic was in the air, and I’m sure that all manner of goof would have been circulating at that moment.
- Conspiracy theorists are reality trolls. Take this woman who is an “Adobe Expert,” for instance. Of course, the representative is correct when he tells sheriff-outfit owner Joe Arpaio to take his evidence to court that birther conspiracies invalidate the presidency. I am convinced that Arpiao should be removed because of competency issues stemming from his deeply ignorant analysis of Obama’s birth certificate. As always, the Intel Hub is breathlessly vapid on the issue, and Alex Jones is indignant that Arpaio is not allowed to go through Obama’s bedstand looking for…whatever the twisted little weasel dropping can find. If Arizona passes HR 2480, which challenges Obama’s eligibility to govern, it will meet the definition of a failed state.
- In a chilling development that bodes poorly for adorable puppies everywhere, the microchipping agenda is going forward!
- Did you know that marriage gives the state the legal right to tell you how to raise your children? (This guy’s website, http://www.jesus-is-savior.com, is sort of like a journey into hell. Some gems from the article:
“I realize that marriage scares many people, but Hebrews 13:4 teaches that God will judge adulterers and whoremongers.Walt Disney teaches teenagers to live loose, be immoral, dress immodestly, fornicate, score, and live together without being married; but such wickedness brings the judgment of God.”
“Sad to say, everything going on in America today with the feminist courts, unfair tax laws, State-controlled CPS, feminism, thug police, and other evils in the U.S. are discouraging young people from getting married anymore. Walt Disney and all of the major influences on America’s youth today teaches them to be rebellious, defy their parents, drink booze, fornicate, get pregnant, have an abortion, and do it again and again… party, party, party!”
“Feminism has turned women into monsters, to the point where they’re turning into lesbians instead of marrying a masculine man.”
“The whole court system in America is evil and rotten to the core!”
- A super awesome paper, the abstract of which is available at the NIH website: “Wave of mutilation: the cattle mutilation phenomenon of the 1970s.”
- Wow. The Hutaree Militia got off.
- Whew! Obama’s plan to give some Aleutians to Russia turns out to be an old conspiracy theory given new life.
- Well, it’s martial law and a new draft is in place. I seem to remember a version of this executive order being issued in every administration. The embodiment of all expletives, Mike Adams, freaked out, of course: “Obama seizes control over all food, farms, livestock, farm equipment, fertilizer and food production across America.” He’s worried about Obama seizing the fertilizer, y’see, because that means he could take away the whole Natural News website. Heheh.
- On the Media, one of my favorite podcasts, rediscovers MK Ultra!
- Oh, hell. Someone has stolen my identity.
- This guy thinks that Big Brother arrive in September 2o13, when everyone knows we’ll be dead of the Mayan neutrino alignment thingy by then!
- Is a “breakaway civilization” responsible for the secret space program? Also, there is a secret space program.
- Speaking of the Intel Hub, I think that they are reprinting something from the Economic Policy Journal. They ask, “Is Obama a CIA Controlled Manchurian Candidate.” I find this amusing since the guy he actually defeated in the election actually was a prisoner of war to communist forces like Raymond in the original Manchurian Candidate.
- A big tip o’ the hat to fellow Britt/SLU grad student alum Roger Whitson for his recommendation of the comic Saucer Country. Looks like a fun, and it’s coming soon to an iPad near me.
- Best. Jacket cover. Ever:
EXOPOLITICS is a book that was time traveled using advanced Tesla-based quantum access technology by the U.S. Defense Advanced Projects Agency (DARPA) from the year 2005 (or later) to the year 1971 (or earlier). The futuristic innovative policy recommendations that Alfred would write in EXOPOLITICS in 2000 about relations with extraterritorial civilizations, and in 2005 about the intelligent civilization on Mars made Alfred a “person of interest” to the CIA in 1971. Because of the book EXOPOLITICS, Alfred has been subjected to intense political surveillance, harassment and torture by CIA and other alphabet agencies since 1971 to present. CIA has chosen to keep its relations with the Martian civilization, including U.S. President Barack H. Obama’s visits to Mars 1980-83 as part of a secret CIA Mars jump room program, a U.S. national security secret, instead of public knowledge as mandated by the National Aeronautics and Space Act of 1958.
- A vocal but incoherent segment of the religious/political right thinks that environmentalism is a vehicle designed to lead to world government. Take this guy, for instance.
- I honestly think that this writer thinks that the sun is angry. There really is a disaster porn element to conspiracy theories.
- Of course, sometimes the moon is mad at us, like when the supermoon sunk the Titanic.
- Was the recent Mexican earthquake caused by HAARP?
- Richard Gage’s Back Bacon and Labatt 2012 Tour is kicking off in the great nation of Canada.
- Katy Perry is encouraging teens to be all they can be. Vigilant Citizen, unfortunately, is doing just that.
- How not to do film studies: Alex Jones on The Hunger Games. (Warning: contains Alex Jones.)
- “Why are dangerous gay homos so hateful?” asks hate group member Linda Harvey.
- Ack! Climate change caused by pole shift. Actually, I saw one item that screamed “The pole shift is happening NAOW!” This floated to the top a couple of times this week, but, of course, Phil Plait has already discussed pole reversal in a calm voice at some length.
- Apocalypse? There’s an app for that! Sure you can’t recharge your devices, but, you know, I’m sure they’ll come up with an app for that too!
- Here’s a confusing headline: “The Cosmos Turned Upside Down: Tolkien, The Giant 9/11 Lie, And The Evil War on Terror.” Turns out, Obama is the voice of Sauron.
Twit of the week:
“Roseanne Barr @TheRealRoseanne Honestly, I am scared shitless/witless of wht is coming to this country. I pray to GOD that ppl will wake up to slavery and fascism NOW”
What is is about the name Rosie that makes people crazy, I wonder? #CorrelationDoesNotEqualCausation
So there! Tomorrow I’ll be hosting a member of a WWII bomber crew at Georgia Tech, so I must be off to prepare. I’m sure I will be posting the video on the website. Because I can.

Great work once again!
Nice work! The supermoon made me lol for real.
““Why are dangerous gay homos so hateful?” asks hate group member Linda Harvey.”
What a stunning example of projection, aside from indicating her contempt for said people.
I would like to know just why so many people are so obsessed by the Gay, and just why so many are so obsessed with Gay sex.
As for this:
“I Like Ancient Aliens”. I should mention this critically diffcient being also likes Ventura’s Conspiracy shows.
As for Roseanne. I give her a free pass for being entertaining and not taking herself all that seriously even when she says nutty things or acts crazy.
This whole line of inquiry gets depressing sometime. I will also be using the phrase “critically deficient being” as often as I can from now on. As for Rosanne, one should not set as a career goal, “become as apeshit as Victoria Jackson.”
Where is the mainstream media on numerous significant un/under-reported stories , like :
gen wesley clark’s videod talk revealing the military plans for the mid east in 2007
the death of dr david kelly
club of rome
bilderberg group ??
All facts , all un/under-reported stories by MSM .
Luckily i am far better informed by so called “kooky conspiracy theorist” web sites !
Now go get informed and stop bleating like an ignorant uninformed sheep !
