“Ten persons who speak make more noise than ten thousand who are silent”

-Napoleon Bonaparte

Conspiracy is a simple word – it means that a group of people are plotting in secret against another group of people, or individual.  Theories are ideas that are not fact, not provable, but ideas that beg to be researched and questioned.  In the past, a number of conspiracy theories have been proven true.  The Dreyfus Affair, MK-ULTRA, Operation Mockingbird, Watergate, The Tuskegee Syphilis Study, Operation Northwoods, The Iran-Contra Affair, the 1990 Testimony of Nayirah, ECHELON, The US Federal Reserve, COINTELPRO, and The Gulf of Tonkin Incident just to name a few.

Disturbingly, many of these true conspiracy (not conspiracy theories) have lead to massive and important world events.  The Gulf of Tonkin resulted in the Vietnam war.  Without it, the government would not have been able to pull the necessary support to go to war.  Conspiracy theorists were warning about the Golf of Tonkin even back then, saying that there was no reason to be at war as the event that got us into the war was a farce.  If more people had listened when the conspiracy was still a theory, perhaps the Vietnam war could have been avoided or shortened.

If more people would have listened when the Tuskegee Syphilis conspiracy was just a theory, perhaps the inhumane treatment of more than 400 African Americans (at least 200 dying as a result of the expirements) could have been avoided.

If more would have listened to the Federal Reserve conspiracy theorists maybe they would not be in charge of our monetary policy and basically in control of our economy today.

Today, the conspiracy theorists are still uncovering more information and are being ignored by masses of people.  This is not to say that all conspiracy theories are true, in fact many are not – after all they are just ideas… i.e. theories. Remember however that some theories turn out to be completely true, and have an incredible impact on you and your family.  The average person, when confronted with a conspiracy theory like “the U.S. Government is testing syphilis treatments (sometimes painful) on an unknowing or un-consenting population” they laugh and dismiss it as a crazy conspiracy theory.  However, that conspiracy turned out to be true.

The average person, when they hear that “attacks on America have been staged in the past” laugh and say that America would never stage an attack and dismiss it as a crazy conspiracy theory.  Unfortunately there have been more than 200 declassified ‘false flag’ attacks.

The examples could continue for quite some time, but the point is this.  Next time you hear something that sounds ‘out there’ it is important to let it enter your mind, and for you to legitimately consider it… heaven forbid even research it for yourself.  Imminently dismissing ideas from these individuals is dangerous and irresponsible.  It is a guarantee that at least some of the conspiracy theories floating around today will end up true in the future, just as has happened countless times in our past.

For example, there is credibility in the conspiracy of secret societies and special interests that have bought and paid for both of our political parties and voting for one or the other makes no real difference as a result.  This is something I would encourage everyone to research.  The Bilderberg Group, the council on foreign relations, skull and bones – if you don’t know about these organizations, you should.

In addition, knowing how many organizations your food actually comes from, or your news actually comes from are also good things to research.  Once a conspiracy is proven true it is important to take steps immediately to protect the truth.  For example, the Federal Reserve did in fact turn out to be a consortium of private banks pretending to be a ‘federal’ entity.  There is legislation now called HR 1207 and S 604 to for the first time in history audit the secret, private federal reserve.  Have you contacted your senator and representative?  Are you going to be one of the ten who stands up for what is right, or one of the ten thousand who remains silent?

Argentina in the ’70s:

February 10, 2010

*Here are a couple paragraphs about what was going on in Argentina in the ’70s:*

Anyone suspected of favoring these groups (revolutionaries against the gov) or their ideas was subject to arbitrary arrest. All cultural life was now subjected to strict censorship. The government took control of all labor unions. People were kidnapped on the streets and never seen again. The prisons overflowed with political prisoners and torture was common. There were no trials or pretense of legal process. An estimated 11,000 Argentines disappeared between 1976 and 1982, called *los desaparecidos* or “the disappeared.” More than 30,000 people died during this period, many in Argentine concentration camps modeled after the Nazi camps. At the height of the horror, only the mothers and grandmothers of the disappeared had the courage to stand up to the government. Every Thursday, they began assembling in the Plaza de Mayo in front of the Presidential Palace, demanding information on their missing children. Conditions in the prisons were unfathomable. Prisoners were not allowed to lie down on their cots during the day, and the strain of this sometimes caused paralysis or atrophy of the legs. They were allowed no contact with family or friends, and most prisoners were afraid to write to loved ones, for fear they too would be targeted. Almost all letters were seized by the censors. The prisons would play sad songs by Julio Iglesias to deepen prisoners’ depression (no kidding). Prison guards would stage fake escapes and executions with mannequins to scare the prisoners. When a prisoner was moved out of his cell, he had to keep his eyes straight ahead; one glance over his shoulder meant loss of all privileges and possible torture. Newspapers and radios were banned insider the prison. Only books written before the French Revolution were in prison libraries.

Prisoners were experimented on with tranquilizer darts, were tortured with cattle prods, had the soles of their feet beaten with batons, had metal buckets placed on their heads and then the buckets hammered, had electrical wires applied to breasts, vaginas, anuses, penises, tongues, and other body parts. In some cases, prisoners’ bellies were slit open and they were dropped in a river as “fish food.” Some were thrown out of airplanes fully conscious. The length of sentences was completely arbitrary and had nothing to do with the “crime” committed, and at the end of the prison term, the prisoner or his family had to pay the state back for the cost of his imprisonment or he would not be released.

*And here is what was declassified in 2003 about America’s opinions of what the Argentine Gov was doing:* In 2003, the *Miami Herald* published proof that America and the Ford administration had approved of this brutal military regime. According to a recently declassified U.S. government document, Secretary of State Henry Kissinger told the Argentine foreign minister in 1976, at the height of the Dirty War, that America supported the Argentine government. The transcript of the meeting between Kissinger and Argentine Navy Admiral César Augusto Guzzetti in New York is the first documentary evidence that the Ford administration approved of the junta’s harsh tactics. “Look, our basic attitude is that we would like you to succeed,” Kissinger reassured Guzzetti in the seven-page transcript, marked *SECRET*. “I have an old-fashioned view that friends ought to be supported. What is not understood in the United States is that you have a civil war. We read about human rights problems but not the context. The quicker you succeed, the better.” The Argentine military regime was delighted.
