Conspiracy 5/22: Save the rhinos

The last male northern white rhinoceros, named Sudan, recently died. His daughter and granddaughter are the last of his species. Hundreds of thousands of the animals roamed African plains 100 years ago, but they were exterminated for their valuable horn. But this story makes no sense without context. Cows, pigs, and chickens aren’t wiped out […]

Conspiracy 5/15: Modern Useful Idiots

Sometimes I wonder if people know what capitalism is. Wikipedia states, “Capitalism is an economic system based upon private ownership of the means of production and their operation for profit. Characteristics central to capitalism include private property, capital accumulation, wage labor, voluntary exchange, a price system, and competitive markets.”

Conspiracy 5/8: Ford surrenders

Arch-thieves kill a giant business By Mark Luedtke Even steel can only bend so far before it breaks. The same with businesses and the economy. For decades, free market supporters have warned that government interventions in the market—taxes, regulations, money-printing, and strong-arm tactics—burden, pervert, and ultimately break companies and markets. Progressively onerous interventions inevitably destroy […]

Conspiracy 05/01: Not too Bright

Call for revolution alongside plan to dim the sun By Mark Luedtke There’s a not-so-old saying that if you scratch a green, you’ll find a red inside. The saying arose after discredited communist activists scurried into the environmental movement and painted it red following the fall of the Soviet Union. These well-named watermelons promote the […]

Conspiracy 04/24: Pavlov’s Presidents

Another false flag chemical weapons attack in Syria By Mark Luedtke President Trump almost did the right thing despite the US war-profiteers. At the end of March, CNN reported, “President Donald Trump said Thursday that the US would ‘be coming out of Syria like very soon,’ just hours after the Pentagon highlighted the need for […]

Conspiracy 4/17: The Gateway Drug

Cops commit assault, rape, and home invasion over marijuana By Mark Luedtke A few months ago I related a story of Houston-area sheriff’s deputies digitally raping a college woman on the side of the road ostensibly in search of marijuana. This is not an isolated incident. Every day, cops around the country assault, often sexually, […]

Conspiracy 04/10: Privacy commits suicide

Regulation won’t stop data collection By Mark Luedtke According to The Daily Mail, while developing Facebook, creator and CEO Mark Zuckerberg called Facebook users dumbf***s for giving so much private information to the company. If the brouhaha over Cambridge Analytica’s use of Facebook data is true, Zuckerberg was right. Users are supposedly outraged that Facebook […]

Conspiracy 04/03: Tortured Logic

Trump among the warmongers By Mark Luedtke Since President Trump took office, deep state warmongers—military generals and spies—have steadily strengthened their stranglehold on his administration. In the last couple of weeks, they might have achieved a death grip. Secretary of State Tillerson might have been the most reasonable member of Trump’s security team until Trump […]

Conspiracy 3/27: The spy who drugged me

Fake news, false flags, Russian government. Whodunnit? The Russians are coming. The Russians are coming. When mainstream propagandists aren’t attacking Trump, they’re attacking Russia. You would think Russia had a GDP of nearly $20 trillion and a defense budget of nearly $1 trillion annually, but that’s the US, not Russia. Russia’s GDP is less than […]

Conspiracy 3/20: Russia Responds

Nuclear war must remain unthinkable By Mark Luedtke Thank Putin. Again. Just a couple of years ago Russian President Putin saved President Obama from outright invading Syria à la Iraq, a move that would have killed many more Americans and Syrians than are already dying in that undeclared and unconstitutional war. Putin recently announced the […]

Conspiracy 3/13: Doing Evil

Google’s Creepy Censorship By Mark Luedtke In order for a republic to work, the people must be educated and informed. The free exchange of ideas, even unpopular ones, is also required. Rulers, because they lie, cheat, steal, and kill for a living, can’t survive those things. That’s why they use government’s power of coercion to […]

Conspiracy Theorist 3/6: Don’t Cry for the FBI

Watchers hate being watched By Mark Luedtke The good news is Americans are losing faith in the FBI following two recent scandals. The Strzok texts, the FISA court memo, and the Nunes memo exposed FBI malfeasance before and after the 2016 election. The FBI purposely and corruptly exonerated Hillary Clinton for her crimes while lying […]

Conspiracy 2/27: Ban socialism not guns

Leftists don’t want safe schools By Mark Luedtke I’m sick of thoughts and prayers too. After every mass killing, whether the perpetrator uses knives, poison, bombs, or guns, rulers respond by saying something like “Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims.” Leftists politicize mass murders with calls for gun control before the bodies […]

Conspiracy 2/20: The Bust is Coming

Bust stories overtaking boom stories By Mark Luedtke Boom-bust cycles are caused by an artificial increase in credit. When interest rates are held artificially low, like the Federal Reserve (Fed) has done not only since 2008, but since the 1970s, it confuses entrepreneurs into believing more real resources have been saved and can be borrowed […]

Conspiracy: 2/13

No Good Samaritans The battle for Good Sam isn’t over By Mark Luedtke Everybody has heard the news: Premier Health is closing Good Samaritan Hospital. It’s the talk of the town. In a peaceful society, one ordered by property rights, that would be the end of the story. But we don’t live in a peaceful […]

Conspiracy Theorist: 2/6

The Next US War Situation may lead to action against NATO ally Turkey By Mark Luedtke Turks, Syrians, Kurds, and Americans. One of these things is not like the others. If you picked Americans, you’re right. The Turks, Syrians, and Kurds control territory that overlaps in the Levant. They share history, cooperation, and conflict that […]
