Hot Under The Collar Conspiracy Theories

Filed under: Conspiracies,Uncategorized — Frank Fiore @ 10:04 AM

What is it about conspiracies that get people hot under the collar? Is it the fact that our lives could be under the control of outside influences? Could it be that we do not know the full truth? Who knows… but there are plenty of theories to keep a would-be-worrier worrying for a long, long time. This week we are going to look at some of the strangest theories thought up by the strangest people about… the strangest things. From doppelgangers to black holes… just scroll down and immerse yourself in the crazy world of the conspiracy theorist…

Do We All Have A Twin?

It’s highly unlikely that we live in the sole existing universe. We’re probably in one of many. Physicists have theorized that there could be infinite universes existing next to each other in a sort of giant patchwork quilt, that the Big Bang led to the generation of many other ‘bubble universes’ and that parallel universes hover just outside of our own. Columbia University physicist Brian Greene, author of the book ‘The Hidden Reality: Parallel Universes and the Deep Laws of the Cosmos’ says the latter theory supports the idea that we all have doppelgangers.

“The argument for doppelgangers is pretty straightforward. Assuming that space goes on infinitely far, in any finite chunk, matter can only arrange itself in a finite number of ways, like cards in a deck. You and I are just a configuration of particles, so sooner or later we’re going to repeat. Matter can almost repeat its configuration but not repeat it identically. Your physical body may repeat, but your mental configuration can be a little bit different, so there might be an evil version of you, and a version that loves skydiving.”

Is This Life Reality?

Could we really be living inside a computer-generated universe? The Matrix may be an outdated work of fiction, but its concept of an artificial reality still carries weight – even scientifically, perhaps, per a team of physicists at the University of Washington. The team announced that there’s actually a potential test to see if we could be the creation of bored entities who are playing us like The Sims. It sounds totally ridiculous, and of course, causes science-minded people to bristle at terms like ‘intelligent design’ – though in this scenario, our creators aren’t exactly a bearded dude in the sky.

But some scientists and philosophers say that this theory could solve a few mysteries about the universe, like the fact that the exact conditions required to support life are so unlikely in the grand scheme of things. Small shifts in dark energy could easily have caused the universe to explode or implode a long time ago.

It has been said that mega-computers of the far future could greatly expand the size of a theoretical Sim Universe, and that if we’re living inside such a program, there could be tell-tale evidence for the underlying ‘lattice quantum chromodynamics’ technique used by the computers. It could show up as a limitation in the energy of cosmic rays.

Time Is Moving Veeeerrrrry Slowly…

Why are supernova stars viewed at extreme distances moving away from us faster than those that are closer? Some scientists say dark energy is responsible or the acceleration, but others offer a different explanation: time itself is slowing down. Those galaxies only look like they’re accelerating from here, because the deep space telescopes are basically looking back in time to see them. Like the ekpyrotic scenario, it’s based on string theory, postulating that our universe is embedded in a multi-dimensional ‘brane’ (like a membrane) which is floating through a higher dimensional space that we’re unable to detect. What does that mean? Essentially, say the scientists responsible for the theory, time could come to a complete halt, freezing everything in place forever. But not to worry – even if this far-out theory is true, it won’t happen for billions of years.

Are We Living In A Black Hole?

Our universe might be so small and insignificant in the grand scheme of things, that it’s hidden inside the black hole of another universe, totally unbeknownst to theoretical sentient beings in that universe. And that means all the black holes so far found in our own universe could also contain doorways to alternate realities. This theory is based on new mathematical models of the spiralling motion of matter falling into a black hole.  The matter absorbed by black holes isn’t necessarily destroyed – it could be expelled, to become the basis for new galaxies, stars, and planets. This could explain the mystery as to how the universe could have started with a singularity in the Big Bang theory – instead of just existing with no explanation, it was birthed by a white hole, the hypothetical escape hatch for matter at the other end of a black hole.

The Secret, Crazy World of Richard M. Nixon

Filed under: Uncategorized — Frank Fiore @ 1:56 PM

Last week we featured some strange conspiracy theories… but people seemed to like them a lot. This week we have some even stranger conspiracies to drop on your doorstep. Yes. These are the conspiracy theories of Richard M. Nixon…  Was he a crazy nut? A paranoid delinquent… or were people truly against him? The truth is that he both kept secrets, and expected others to keep secrets. His secrets were kept for a reason—and he knew why others were keeping secrets about him. Let’s take a look at the list.

cartoon-nixon-richard-nixon-3682400-374-386

Secret Bombings

Laos and Cambodia, the two nations on South Vietnam’s western border, unwillingly provided the “Ho Chi Minh Trail” that Hanoi used to infiltrate soldiers and supplies into the South. Shortly after Nixon took office, he ordered the Air Force to start bombing the Trail through Cambodia. Nixon kept the bombing of Cambodia secret from the American people.

In his memoirs, Nixon tries to explain why he kept the bombing secret from the American people, when it was certainly no secret to the Cambodians or the North Vietnamese. By not acknowledging that he was bombing Cambodia at the time, Nixon wrote, he gave its leader, Prince Sihanouk, a way to maintain his official neutrality on the war, and he made it harder for the North Vietnamese to lodge a protest. The only reason left to keep the bombing secret was political. Nixon knew that revealing it would cause a public outcry

Economic Conspiracy Theory

Nixon didn’t limit his conspiracy theorizing to the politics of foreign policy. Domestically, rising unemployment and inflation dogged the economy and threatened him politically. No wonder his imaginary conspiracy of Jews, intellectuals, and Ivy Leaguers soon encompassed the federal agency that calculates the unemployment and inflation rates, the Bureau of Labor Statistic, and the one official other than himself who wielded the greatest influence on the economy. Who could that be? Why the chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, of course!

Haig’s List

From the first day of the Pentagon Papers series, Nixon was worried about what their publication meant regarding his own secrets. Kissinger’s deputy, Alexander M. Haig, couldn’t have realized it, but his speculation about the source of the leak to the Times was bound to make Nixon fear the exposure of another, more damaging, foreign policy secret, one dating back to his 1968 presidential campaign. “Well, I’m sure it came from Defense, and I’m sure it was stolen at the time of the turnover of the administration,” Haig said.

“Who in the Pentagon?” Nixon asked. “I will fire the SOB’s.” “They are all gone now,” Haig replied. “Clifford, Halperin, Gelb.” Leslie H. Gelb had run the Defense Department study that became the Pentagon Papers, Deputy Assistant Defense Secretary Morton H. Halperin was Gelb’s boss, and former Secretary of Defense Clark M. Clifford had presided over the completion of the study, which began under his predecessor, McNamara. Haig was wrong. Clifford, Halperin and Gelb did not take part in the Pentagon Papers leak.

Bombing Halt

Three names—Clifford, Halperin and Gelb—had special meaning for Nixon. They had appeared together in print once before, however, in a two-part New York Times series on how President Lyndon B. Johnson switched his Vietnam strategy in 1968 from escalation to negotiation. Clifford, along with “a nest of ‘hidden doves’ at the Pentagon” that included Halperin and Gelb, got much of the credit in the articles for the strategy change, which culminated, just days before the presidential election, in a development that nearly derailed Nixon’s candidacy.  In a televised address to the nation on October 31, 1968, Johnson announced that the North Vietnamese had backed down from their refusal to engage in peace talks with the South, and he had stopped bombing the North. Nixon had begun the final month of the campaign with a landslide-like lead over his Democratic rival, Hubert Humphrey, who as Johnson’s Vice President had suffered in the polls by association with the Vietnam War. As Johnson’s negotiating strategy began to bear fruit, Nixon watched his lead shrink from 15 points in early October to 8 points in late October and finally, on the weekend before the election, to just 2 points.  In the end, he won, but by less than 1 percent.

2017 According to Nostradamus

Filed under: Conspiracies,Paranormal,Uncategorized — Frank Fiore @ 4:50 PM

When it comes to conspiracies there are certain ones that are above the rest. This blog is all about a much-discussed seer called Nostradamus. Nostradamus was said to have foreseen 9/11, the rise of Hitler and several other world changing events. Each year scholars look to see what will happen over the next year. This year’s predictions from Nostradamus are…

nostradamus-predictions-2016

An Unstable America

The US is predicted to become increasingly ungovernable as the year progresses. It is not known how this will yet play out, but President Trump has already made it repeatedly clear he will be putting America’s interest first. Many strategists have warned that America will become less engaged in the past and will be more cautious concerning economic and military matters.

There Will Be Peace in the Valley

Nostradamus predicts the two major rivals will sign a peace agreement. These two rivals are Russia and the Ukraine. However, it remains unclear as to when and how this will take place with other European nations predicted to support the deal.

The Rise of China

This Asian powerhouse is predicted to make bold moves to cure the “economic imbalance“ in the world and its actions will have far reaching consequences. However just last month, there were predictions that China’s economy is living on borrowed time with Beijing facing a series of internal and external threats. A leading analyst predicts China’s housing and construction sectors will begin to slow by next year. Will 2017 mark the end of communism in one of the world’s most closed off countries?

Bye, Bye Italy

Italy will also suffer some tough times ahead, with economic turmoil increasing and a deepening banking crisis. This is likely to bring around an end to the European Union.

Kim-Jong Who?

Nostradamus is also said to have foretold that the North Korean dictator will see his little empire crumble during 2017. Will his long subjected people rise up and wipe him away? Will we see a reunified Korea?

The Obama Conspiracy

Filed under: Conspiracies,Uncategorized — Frank Fiore @ 11:01 AM

When it comes to conspiracies there are certain ones that are above the rest. This blog article is all about one the biggest conspiracies ever to become publicly known. The OBAMA conspiracy. These “rumors” about the President have plagued him throughout his Presidency… Do you believe the President of the United States could be hiding secrets like these?

Obama is a secret Muslim:

This one began right after he took the stage at the 2004 Democratic convention, with chain emails alleging his “true” religious affiliation. The rumor soon found its way onto the popular conservative online forum Free Republic, and took on a whole new life in the years to come.

Obama once aided the mujahideen:

Harlem pastor and professional race-baiter James David Manning contended that in his younger days, Obama went undercover as a CIA agent to facilitate the transfer of cash and weapons to the Afghan mujahideen in the ’80s, thereby aiding what would become the Taliban.

Obama redecorated the Oval Office in Middle Eastern style:

Driven by his fierce sense of anti-American interior design, Obama got rid of the red, white, and blue decoration scheme in his White House office.

Obama married a Pakistani guy:

Correspondent Jerome Corsi posted a video in which he claimed to have “strong” evidence that Obama was once married to his college roommate from Pakistan. The smoking gun: Photos of the chums in which the future president is “sitting about on the [Pakistani roommate’s] lap.” For years Obama wore a gold ring on his left hand. Was it his gay-wedding ring?

Obama and the Koran

Obama’s ring has a Koranic verse on it. Did you know that? The very same ring, which Obama now wears as his wedding band, is allegedly emblazoned with a key phrase in the Islamic declaration of faith: “There is no god except Allah.”

Secrets of the Past

Filed under: Conspiracies,Uncategorized — Frank Fiore @ 2:15 PM

Some of the worlds least famous conspiracy theories, are some of the strangest. Take these theories for example. From the secret cults of the rich and famous, to secret sleeper agents—do we really know what is going on in the world? Do we have any idea about the truth? Let’s find out what the conspiracy theorists already know…

conspiracy-theory-1024x729

Secret Societies, Secret Rituals and the Rich

All conspiracy theories stem from the idea that a cabal of rich and powerful men control the world. This is true, in a way, but it’s nothing but a bunch of entrepreneurs and investors fighting each other for market shares. Can you imagine if the rich and powerful donned robes and got together to perform ridiculous rituals? The truth is much weirder. The Bohemian Grove gatherings, in which members — which have included U.S. presidents — gather to perform rituals before a 30-foot-tall idol shaped like an owl.

The Dead Zone

This theory takes many forms, but all comes back to the idea that in some secret government lab, they’re doing human experimentation without our knowledge. If it was an episode of the X-Files, it’d probably involve some shady agency secretly collecting DNA samples from the public to breed with aliens or create super soldiers or some shit.

Secret Sleeper Cells

It’s easy to forget that you don’t have to go back that many decades to find an America haunted by the idea that there were communists hiding under every bed. Sure, the West was in an arms race with the Soviet Union — that part was real — but the truly paranoid were sure that their neighbors, school teachers, and grocers were sneaking into their basements at night to roll out invasion maps. When their comrades arrived at America’s borders, they’d be ready to help.

Making Patients Sick… For Profit

According to conspiracy theorists, Big Pharma is an evil machine that makes people sick for profit. You might be surprised to learn that they’re right … about the last half of the sentence. Because let’s face it, we all already believe the rest of it.

Do You Know About The Secret World We Can’t See?

Filed under: Uncategorized — Frank Fiore @ 1:17 PM

As this is the week of Halloween… I thought it would be interesting to share some of the more frightening conspiracy theories. Don’t read these in the dark. Turnover, put the light on, sit up and read through these slowly. You may find them making more sense…. Than you could have ever believed. Does our world truly exist? Are we subject to the whims of a superior race of people? What is this life we are leading? Let’s hear some suggestions…

Project Bluebeam

This very controversial, and dangerous conspiracy theory, holds that the New World Order will use advanced holographic technology to create a false flag alien invasion and/or a worldwide religious “awakening” to achieve servitude by the masses and acceptance of a one world government and religion and possibly depopulation efforts as well.

The Fermi Paradox

The Fermi Paradox is an argument originally made by physicists Enrico Fermi and Michael H. Hart, who presented an apparent contradiction between how many alien civilizations are thought to be out there and our lack of evidence for their existence.

Do Humans Hold The Signs of Alien Life in Their DNA?

Is it possible that an intelligent species encoded a message or signature into the very structure of our DNA? There is evidence that suggests that this is the case.

Is This Real? Is It Fantasy?

This theory supposes that because of the overwhelming likelihood of technological singularities occurring in the universe, it is quite likely that advanced civilizations–either us in the future, or aliens in a distant galaxy–have created or will create simulations. Since the number of these simulations would be in the billions, some scientists have admitted that it’s quite likely we are living in some sort of a computer simulation.

The Disappearance of Flight MH370

Filed under: Uncategorized — Frank Fiore @ 8:15 AM

One of the great conspiracies of recent years has been the disappearance of flight MH370. Since it’s disappearance there have been hundreds of rumors about the plane. Some say it was taken by North Korea, others say Vietnam took it. Some say the plane can be found on the moon—some even think the plane became invisible. This blog article is all about some of the wackiest, and most plausible reasons for the disappearance of flight MH370. What do you think happened to that plane?

North Korea Took it By Force

It didn’t take long for the most secretive nation in the world to be dragged into the MH370 rumor mill. Shortly after the plane disappeared, several conspiracy theorists questioned whether North Korea might be the “missing link” in the mystery. They pointed to South Korea’s claim that North Korea nearly took out a Chinese plane carrying 220 passengers on 5 March 2014, with Chinese Southern Airlines reportedly passing through the trajectory of a North Korean missile just seven minutes after it was fired. Three days later, MH370 disappeared.

Vladimir Putin Was Behind It

It was surely only a matter of time before Vladimir Putin was accused of being involved in the disappearance of the MH370. However, what is surprising is that the accusation has come from a comparatively reputable source. Jeff Wise, a US science writer who was central to CNN’s coverage of the MH370 last year has come up with the theory based on the so-called “pings” that the plane emitted for several hours after it apparently went missing. Apparently the plane’s hijackers “spoofed” the plane’s navigation data to give off the impression that it flew south, but in fact took the Boeing 777 north and landed it in the Baikonur Cosmodrome, which is leased from Kazakhstan by Russia. One question has been left unanswered. Why Vladimir Putin would want to hijack a plane filled with passengers and land it at a Russian space port.

The First Plane on the Moon

Three weeks after MH370 went missing, that a media outlet announced that the aircraft had been found… Where? They said it was found on the moon. Drawing attention to an unexplained blip on the radar seen close to flight MH370 before it disappeared, the outlet said that… “The simplest explanation is that this is an intergalactic spacecraft that has swallowed the Boeing 777 whole and transported it to the moon for some extra- terrestrial reason.”

Plane Down… Plane Down

Soon after MH370 went missing somebody noticed that the aircraft in question was the 404th Boeing 777 to have come off the production line. The significance? On the internet, a “404 error” message is returned when a web page can’t be found. It was therefore interpreted as a hidden message about the fate of the plane, although what it might signify about its fate was unclear.

Shot Down By The United States?

A former airline director who has been investigating the disappearance of flight MH370 has claimed that the missing plane was shot down by American fighter jets who feared that it had been hijacked and was about to be used to attack the US military base on the Indian Ocean atoll of Diego Garcia.

“Is It African-American or Just American?”

Filed under: Uncategorized — Frank Fiore @ 1:46 PM

In my newly released book – MURRAN – to be available the first week of December, black characters take on this question is a very unique way and flies in the face of the common knowledge of people like Oprah – who by the way, was pretty upset with black actress Raven-Symoné.

Actress Raven-Symoné was the subject of the Wednesday premiere of Oprah Winfrey’s “Where Are They Now?” She lit up a firestorm in the Blacksphere when she said, “I’m tired of being labeled. I’m an American, I’m not African-American. I’m an American.”

You could tell that Oprah really did not like Raven-Symoné saying this. She attempted to joke it off and play the objective interviewer, but she was not pleased with Raven’s emphatic statement that she defines herself as an American, not by a certain phrase. Knowing Oprah’s proclivities of late to deal the race card, this is not surprising.

What is also not surprising is the hue and cry on Twitter and in other social media.

Roxanne Jones, founding editor of ESPN The Magazine and former ESPN vice president, took to CNN to register her disagreement. “I get it. Raven-Symoné doesn’t like labels. But she is wrong to run away from her blackness, seemingly hoping that no one acknowledges her beautiful brown skin and the history written all over her face.”

Why is Raven-Symoné’s refusal to use the African-American label equivalent to turning her back on her race? As if a label is anything but a form of categorization. Raven herself said this about her initial discovery of her sexuality: “I don’t need a categorizing statement for this.” From reading the Twitter feeds, very few people are getting up-in-arms about her unwillingness to check the “gay” sexuality box, but plenty of people are highly upset at her unwillingness to check the “African-American” box, and are inferring all types of negative baggage from it.
Back in 1997, Tiger Woods, another supposed “Black” role model (he didn’t volunteer for the role) that the Blacksphere embraced as one of their own (also something he didn’t seek out), pretty much said a similar thing. When Oprah ruled the airwaves on network television, he said in an interview on her ABC show, “Growing up, I came up with this name: I’m a `Cablinasian’. He felt the name best captures his racial makeup: a blend of Caucasian, black, Indian and Asian. Black people got up in arms and called him a denier, a self-hater, and a sell out too.
Dr. Martin Luther King said “A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus.” From the N-word, to Colored, to Negro, to Afro-American, to Black, to African-American, the label has been molded to reflect the times and the generation; and each generation has a right to say that the label no longer fits, or that it does not adequately define me.
It is refreshing that Raven-Symoné wishes to lead, and I applaud her right to do so.
I totally agree. I hope someday, as Martin Luther King once said, people will be judged solely on the content of their character and not the color of their skin. And I might add, not by a ‘hyphen’.
