Conspiracy Theorist: 7/7

They’re distracting us

Something big and secret is happening

Mark Luedtke

Before entering politics, President Obama was a professional protester and rabble-rouser called a community organizer. Empowered by him, leftists have employed professional protesters like him to instigate violence and hatred all around the country.

Empowering the Charleston mass murderer and encouraging copycats, leftists are vandalizing Confederate monuments around the country like ISIS destroying relics in Syria. Republican and Democrat presidential candidates focus on it. The accomplice press inundates us with stories about it.

But other than for emotional manipulation, a Soviet-style purge of flags and monuments benefits nobody. It only destroys culture and history. Whenever the united ruling establishment orchestrates something so emotional, they’re distracting us from something big.

The question is what.

Maybe it’s the trouble in Greece. The slow-motion self-destruction of the European Monetary Union (Eurozone) continues with Greece at the head. It was big news a few years ago when Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Greece and Spain, collectively called the PIIGS, threatened to bring down the Eurozone and probably the entire world banking system with it under a tsunami of sovereign debt. That problem was never fixed. The problem of outrageous government spending, taxes, debt, corruption and crushed private sectors was temporarily removed from the headlines by more government spending, taxes, debt, corruption and a more burdened economy, making the problem worse, not better. Hilariously, this was called austerity.

As a result of this phony austerity, The Guardian reports Greece’s economy was crushed, “In the end, the Greek economy shrank by 25 percent, a slump equivalent in its severity to that suffered by the US between 1929 and 1932,” it published.

As predicted by many, the slipperiest of the PIIGS is back at the trough asking for another bailout, but with no success. Greece’s rulers believe they have all the leverage, so they won’t agree to more phony austerity. The EU’s rulers believe they have all the leverage, so they won’t back off their economy-crushing demands. The negotiations are at an impasse, and Greece can’t pay back its loans. The crisis is so bad, Greeks are emptying the banks of cash in the biggest bank run since Cyprus.

But bizarrely, markets remain un-phased. It’s as if the Greek crisis doesn’t exist. The European Central Bank (ECB) is printing counterfeit euros like crazy to keep Greek banks propped up. It’s printing counterfeit euros like crazy to buy bonds from the rest of the PIIGS and all the profligate European governments. It’s also printing counterfeit euros like crazy in a European version of quantitative easing. While this may temporarily hide Europe’s fiscal problems, it’s making them worse. Something must give.

As of this writing, Greece just shut the banks. Ron Paul predicts the U.S. Federal Reserve will ultimately bail out Greece like it did in 2008, further infecting the U.S. with Europe’s problems.

Or maybe they’re hiding U.S. aggression against Russia. Infowars reports, “On Tuesday in a stopover in the Estonian capital of Tallinn, [U.S. Secretary of Defense] Carter cited the alleged Russian intervention in Ukraine as the reason the United States will permanently position tanks, artillery and other military equipment in eastern Europe on the Russian border.” Special forces will also be deployed against Ukrainian separatists. The U.S. conveniently never mentions it initiated a coup against the democratic government in Ukraine and replaced it with neo-nazis.

This reverse replay of the Cuban missile crisis also highlights how the U.S. has transformed into the Soviet Union.

The move forced Russia to respond by moving forces including nuclear missiles to the area. This is the closest we’ve been to nuclear war since the Cuban missile crisis, but nobody in the mainstream is talking about it except Pat Buchanan. “Yet we are today risking a collision with Russia in the Baltic States and Ukraine, where no vital U.S. interest has ever existed and where our adversary enjoys military superiority,” he writes.

Hopefully you consider this insane, but our rulers don’t. Former Assistant Treasury Secretary Paul Craig Roberts wrote last year, “Washington thinks nuclear war can be won and is planning for a first strike on Russia, and perhaps China, in order to prevent any challenge to Washington’s world hegemony. The plan is far advanced, and the implementation of the plan is underway.” While our rulers, hidden in their bunkers, may survive the greatest act of evil ever, we certainly wouldn’t. But they don’t care about us.

Or they may be hiding something else. Regardless, getting caught up in orchestrated, emotional pseudo-issues helps our rulers and hurts us.
