For the last several weeks, I’ve been teaching, packing, hunting for a house, and preparing for my TAM panel. It turns out that when I’m not writing this feature, I do feel as if something is lacking, so I am making a great lunge at normalcy by coming back and writing another Week in Conspiracy. After TAM, a new project is in the works that is going to take this to the next level. More to come. But we are assembling the super-friends to start this sucker up. Needless to say (a phrase that should not exist) when you get a couple hundred skeptics in a bar together, the ideas come fast and furious (another phrase that shouldn’t exist, but for different reasons). I’ve been meticulously gathering the woo as I always have, so there are no gaps in the coverage, just gaps in publication.
STOP THE PRESSES!
Well, it looks sort of unavoidable that I’m going to have to talk about the mass shooting in Colorado. Damn it. But were not 24 hours into the aftermath and I’ve seen the CIA, FBI, MK-Ultra, and Obama targeted as possible culprits. I’m only going to point out a couple of the worst…people in general who have decided to fap furiously to the misery.
- The Worst Person in the World of the Week award goes to Mike Adams; he’s a tumor with teeth. He essentially blamed the victims for allowing themselves to get shot. I recommend that you read this one, because his journey to medical oddity is almost complete. The shooting was also staged.
- Here’s the old “they’re coming to take our guns now” chant.
- Alex Jones is a horrible almost-person, or in the worlds of our international correspondents:

Alex Jones Says Aurora Shooting Was Staged By Obama

- Tyler lists a bunch of mass killings around the world and tweeters/twits/twitteurs claim that they might be related. Beats having evidence, I always say.
- Conspiracy theorists are already linking the shooting suspect’s work in neuroscience to DARPA mind control or something.
- A guy stays up all night researching the shooting, posts on the Internet.
- Nitwit Cynthia McKinney sent out a link to a copy of an FBI warning that was recently taken down (apparently). It said that Muslim terrorists might be interested in attacking theaters and other places of mass gatherings. Because they were already doing it abroad.
- What did the FBI know? The IntelHub also points the finger at the CIA. Make up your damned minds.
- Was there a second person involved? IntelHub peers deeply into the soul of a person they haven’t met, interviewed, or identified. Because they are probably psychic.
- I’m not even sure what the claim is here, but then again it is Godlike Productions.
- Was the theater shooting foretold in a 1986 Dark Knight comic? Almost certainly the hell not.
- Lastly, some Texan Congressweasel says that the shooting is an attack on our Judeo-Christian heritage.
Enough of that. On with the other not news at all:
- The Nibiru/FEMA Camp connection! Speaking of the FEMA camps, IntelHub has a collection of photos and warnings about them. Of course, the FEMA camps story has been around since the 1970s. You’d think they’d act on them eventually, right? Also, the Libertarian Review examines the Army Internment Field Manual (already released through the Library of Congress) and imagines that it applies to Americans.
- Perhaps the suicide bombing in Bulgaria would have been the main focus of this week’s edition, but America is not to be outdone. But here’s one sent in by special correspondent Omri Ceren: “Bulgarian Terrorist Attack is a False Flag Operation by the Mossad.” Aren’t they all, Omri?
- The Larry Silverstein (WTC leaseholder)/Olympics connection! Also, why is England stockpiling casket liners? I tell you, if there is not a city-sized massacre at the Olympics, it will only be because some pissant peon indy journalists on the web stopped it. Or…..
- The Google/CFR connection!
- A great reply to chemtrail conspiracy theorists:”This is something you should be looking into,” they all say. However, if that were was true, this newspaper would also be reporting on Smurfs, aliens in the White House and the global domination plans of a group known as the New World Order.
- Zombie otters in Minnesota.
- There was apparently protesting outside of the Bohemian Grove this week. An old guy got arrested, but it’s not clear for what from Mark Dice’s video. Unfortunately, for the protesters, the video does not cut off before someone hurls a slur at the cops. Way to lose the moral high ground. Doink! Also, I really don’t feel like watching David Icke’s pronouncements about the Global Elite gathering outside of San Francisco or Russia Today’s coverage, which is homogeneously bad in all matters of fact. And you ever wonder what happened to Cindy Sheehan? Guess where she’s protesting! If you do see Russia Today’s coverage on YouTube, I do recommend a new plug in, Herp Derp, which improves the quality of YouTube comments.
- Susan Posel believes that developing vaccines against addiction is part of the transhumanist agenda. Or are they targeting large people with anti-fat vaccines?
- Susan was on a tear this week, it turns out. She sees Agenda 21 in NYC micro-apartment movements.
- The David Ray Griffin story.
- Vigilant Citizen discovers that the Illuminati mind control is not working through symbolic images in the music industry. OH! NO! WAIT! SAME SHIT THIS MONTH!
- The hard-hitting scientists at Answers In Genesis tackle the pressing issue of human alien hybridization.
- Here’s the problem with 9/11 Trutherism in a nutshell.
- I could be wrong, but it seems to me that there is a sequel to What in the World are they Spraying? I was at the world premiere of the original, and I’m pretty sure this one is going to be ill-informed as well:
- Rush Limbaugh says that Romney’s Bain is the new Batman’s Bane. This is impossible. It’s good to see the people at Politifact having a little fun. Unfortunately, it seems that this one, after the Colorado shooting, is well on it’s way to becoming part of a conspiracy theory on the left.
- The kooks in Arizona’s government.
- Michelle Bachmann, in so many ways, aspires to be Joe McCarthy. Looking for Muslims in the State Department?
- UPDATE! Michelle Bachmann’s scaremongering has real world consequences. Huma Abedin, the target of her criticism, has received threats.
- Mother Jones points out the absurdities of Bachmann’s proclamations as well as the real world consequences.
- Of course, a writer at IntelHub doesn’t know if she should be more askeered of the Muzzies or the Joos.
- ENTROPY IS A CONSPIRACY OF ELITISTS!
- Never leave out the Iranians: drought is part of a soft war on the part of the West. I remember how an antivaxxer once told me that vaccines were “soft kills,” to which I replied, “So soft that we’re living longer than ever.”
- I am including this link because the title is “Serial Foot Licker Apprehended.”
- I am including this link only because it has the word “Cowpocalypse” in the title. I’m looking forward to the Cow Rapture myself.
- And while Cowpocalyses are cool, they are no man-sized lizards.
- Ben Bernanke criticizes Ron Paul’s Fed audit proposal, on the grounds that it would turn the monetary system into a political football.
- The NRA continues apace with the Obama conspiracy theories, as reported by the New Republic.
- OK, were the boos or the cheers faked, people?
- Dr. Laurie Roth: “Monsanto, Big Pharmacy, and the New World Order.” You’re new at being insane, aren’t you, lass? It’s “Big Pharma.”
- Maynard at the ABC (met him at TAM–hi, Maynard!) has a report about a woman who pretends to be a victim of 9/11. Interesting stuff.
- A UFO outbreak in Michigan was probably a major military exercise involving flares. Again.
- Partisan birther lunatic Joseph Farah claims that he is being followed by drones. Drones, by the way, are the new black helicopters. In related news, Drudge spreads the idea that Obama is going to kill conservative reporters in his second term. I don’t know when a reporter’s mental illness became newsworthy.
- The Guardian kindly rips apart a conspiracy theorist who says the West is behind the Syrian civil war.
- The da Vinci code has finally been cracked. Hopefully over the head of some ding-dong.
- Here’s a fun one that includes a section on “secondary cow electrocution”: “Updated!!!!!! Massive U.S. Coverup! : 4th of July Electric Shock Drownings, Now another repeat episode, still think algae is killing those fish?”
- Here’s one for the “eventually I am going to write that article about scary sun theories” pile: solar storms and the pineal gland.
- Even though the story is from the Mail, there seems to be some question about whether or not Arafat was assassinated with polonium, as he had radioactive underwear.
- Ah, Oath Keepers, ratcheting up up the fear yet another notch. At what point do they snap?
- Please, Donald Trump, enough with the conspiracy theories. You’re scaring the Canadians.
- This poem may get its own post.
- Lunar fortresses and pyramids…on the MOON!
- Tony Sobrado discusses the history of conspiracy theories in the US.
- The Clinton Death List has been replaced by the Obama Death Pool.
- Ever wonder about the various typologies of Martian humanoids? Me neither. But Andrew D. Basiago at exopolitics has. The author’s photo is highly suspicious in this one.
Twit of the Week
This week’s twit award goes out to the IntelHub, who sent (or “communicated”) this highly ironic tweet:
Obama Seizes Control of All Communications Systems With Executive Order: http://t.co/D7E7m8Qd — IntelHub (@IntelHub)
I would be remiss if I did not mention Josh Bunting’s quip on twitter:

Michele Bachmann = M.B. = Muslim Brotherhood. Coincidence?
Conspiracy Theory of the Week
This week’s winner was flagged by Brian Gregory, and it made me very happy: “Earth landing ‘totally faked,’ claim Martian conspiracy theorists.”
That’s all for now, folks! Expect another slight hiatus as I finish up my summer class and move to Wisconsin. I leave in, like, a week and am pretty excited. Got a little house with…gasp!..an office. No more typing in the living room, no siree! I also have a couple of badass projects in the works, as always. But these are super-badass. For real. MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
