[Note: this is an edited and expanded version of a previous article titled "Sandy Hook and Christopher Rodia - Most 'Conspiracy Theorists' Can't Think"]
Many of the most notable events in modern (and even ancient) history have provoked some form of ‘conspiracy theory’. That is to say, ordinary people were not satisfied with the official story about how the event unfolded because all or some aspects of that story simply did not objectively make sense. Despite what the mainstream media would like us to believe about ‘conspiracy theories’, most conspiracy theories are based on objective problems with the official narrative. But note that I said ‘based on’. The problem with conspiracy theories is that, while they usually reflect a more accurate overview of a major event, they are forced to rely on theory (due to deliberate with-holding of data by official sources) rather than hard evidence (which would disqualify them as theories) and are therefore open to abuse by people who tend to use their imaginations to complete the picture rather than the more critical functions of the human mind.
Compared to other similar events where many people found the official story implausible, the Sandy Hook massacre has provoked a veritable flood of conspiracy theories, and many of them are not based on any hard evidence. Read more »
As you probably know, a lot of conspiracy web sites and ’2nd amendment’ types in the USA are up in arms (literally?) right now about what they suspect is a covert attempt by the US government (or some section thereof) to rob them of their right to own guns.
The plot, according to the hard-line conspiracy theorists, is that the recent massacre in Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut was in some way ‘staged’ and was, essentially, a means to an end, the end being that the massacre provides plausible just cause for the government, congress etc. to table legislation to abolish, or at least water down, the 2nd amendment right to bear arms.
Why would the government want to disarm the US population? Well, it’s pretty obvious! The only thing stopping the US government from implementing an overt police state in the USA is the 100 million American’s that own guns. That’s the theory anyway. Of course, probably very few gun lovers in the US are hardened conspiracy theorist who think that the government was behind the Sandy Hook school massacre, but you can bet that most of them are conspiratorially-minded enough to believe that the government may try to use the massacre to rob them of their favorite piece of cold hard steel.

I have already pointed out the many glaring inconsistencies in the official account of the the ‘killing of Bin Laden’. But even as I write the story continues to fall apart. According to Pakistani Urdu TV channel Geo News quoting Pakistani intelligence officials, the incident involved a search operation launched by the Pakistani forces “after a Pakistani army helicopter was shot down in the wee hours of Monday in Abbotabad” According the source, at about 1:20 a.m. local time a Pakistani helicopter was “shot down by unknown people in the Sikandarabad area of Abbotabad”. The Pakistani forces launched a search operation in the nearby area and “encountered with a group of unknown armed people. A fire exchange followed between the two sides.”Now, this could simply be a case of Pakistani officials attempting to save face in the context of a flagrant and very public breach of Pakistani sovereignty, but even so, the official US government story still makes no sense whatsoever, and given that it comes essentially from the same cabal of psychopathic war-mongers who gave us the Iraq war lies etc., we have every reason NOT to believe it.
All of the available evidence strongly suggests that Bin Laden died many years ago. Nevertheless, the war-mongers and ‘reality creators’ in the US of A and elsewhere decided that he was just too damn perfect as an terrorist mastermind (think baddie in James Bond) to let him (or us) off the hook so easily. So, they used his image and attributed the 9/11 attacks and a host of other ‘terrorist’ crimes since then to him (without any evidence). But the fact that he was, in reality, quite dead, was an issue that the backroom boys in the Pentagon and the CIA were always going to have to face one day. And in case you’re wondering, the idea of allowing him to simply fade from public awareness was a non-starter, not due to any considerations of honor or justice, but rather because of the massive ‘political capital’ that his capture or killing would provide.
So at some stage in the recent past, a plot was hatched in the bowels of the Pentagon and CIA HQ to stage the death of Bin Laden. Word has it that the real codename for this operation was either ‘die another day’ or ‘you only live twice’. (but don’t quote me on that.) Read more »
