Rambles about stuff I like.

Conspiracies exist

I have to say, I love conspiracies. No matter how crazy or ridiculous, I love reading about conspiracies and conspiracy theories. Why? Well, for starters, some of them are true.

Iran-Contra was an incontrovertible conspiracy, involving rogue government agents operating out of the office of the vice-president and various intelligence agents, both US and Israeli. John Poindexter was charged and arrested for conspiracy. This happened near the end of the 80’s, so when people think that conspiracies are all about wacky ideas involving aliens and time travel, they’re mistaken.

The JFK assassination was clearly a conspiracy. Although people still like to believe that JFK was taken out by a long gunman, in 1978, the US House Select Committee on Assassinations determined that it was likely that JFK was assassinated as the result of a conspiracy. Of course, this is rarely mentioned in the mainstream media. This November will be the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy assassination. See how many times the media mentions Lee Harvey Oswald vs. the number of times the media mentions the 1978 house select committee report.

A very shocking conspiracy that has grounding in fact was the support of the Soviets and the Nazis by US business and corporations. If you read the detailed works of Antony C. Sutton, you’ll see documented evidence that various US corporations funded the Soviets and the Nazis. In fact, Prescott Bush, the father of GHW Bush and grandfather of GW Bush was charged with funding the Nazis, under the trading with the enemy act.

Obviously, 9/11 was a conspiracy. Even this fact is enough to rile people up. But if you believe the US governments version of the events of that day, 19 Saudis hijacked planes and flew them into buildings. These actions were the result of a conspiracy – these 19 (or more) conspirators met beforehand in secret and planned to carry out this attack. The official story of 9/11 is, by definition, a conspiracy theory.

Of course, I think you’ll find that there’s quite a bit of debate about who knew what at what time on those days… But that’s another story for another day…
