The death of Justice Scalia. I’m not saying I think there’s a conspiracy here, but there certainly are some weird circumstances that can cause a reasonable person to wonder what was going on. Antonin Scalia was at a favorite hunting lodge in Shafter, TX in February, 2016 when he suddenly just died. Okay, that happens. He was an older guy. He certainly didn’t have any long-running health issues as far as most people knew. And he was out participating in an outdoor activity with some level of physical exertion. Where it gets really weird is this remote hunting lodge is a place where he went without the usual protection members of the Supreme Court normally have. U.S. Marshals, I believe. Okay, dies suddenly at a time when he didn’t have his security detail handy. That could be a coincidence. But then he was officially pronounced dead by a local official over the phone. That is, a person was declared dead by someone who never saw the person about whom they made this declaration. In defense, the local officials said they’d done it before and talked about how remote the ranch was. I guess it was a hassle to drive out there, or something. Okay, I suppose you could square that by saying he saw the body later and did an autopsy and everything came out in the end. That’s where this takes another weird turn. No autopsy was done. A sitting Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court died suddenly when his security detail was away, he was pronounced dead over the phone and his body was hustled off and immediately cremated. I know people who work in the medical field and a common frustration is the official requirement for an autopsy, even when the cause of death is obvious. I don’t know what the actual story is, but you can’t hold it against people for being suspicious of this mess.
The death of Osama bin Laden. This one is a bit like the Scalia death, only not as strange on as many levels. Bin Laden was killed. And the official story is his body was given Islamic funeral rites by a U.S. Navy Muslim Chaplain and he was buried at sea at an undisclosed location. As big a deal as administrations make when they get a terrorist bad guy, this one was over quick. Bush made a bid deal when al Zaqauwi was killed. Obama made the biggest deal of all time about bin Laden, making it sound like he was there kicking in the door and shooting him himself. I think he used “I”, “me” or “mine” about 1,000 times during his triumphant announcement. President Trump made a big deal about that Solemani guy they killed. With bin Laden, though, there were no pictures. And nobody from the Navy ship has ever come forward and mentioned anything about the burial at sea. This one isn’t as weird as the Scalia death. But people have insisted there’s some kind of conspiracy going on with it.
QAnon. This one is the most baffling and the most interesting. Essentially, the idea is that someone inside the government or someone in a position to have inside information is leaking hints about upcoming events. Like a secret whistleblower. But who is it? It’s fuzzy from the get-go. It could be one person. It could be multiple people. It could be nobody. It could be crowd-sourced and collected by some shadowy figure or group. For as many people who point out things QAnon predicted, just as many people point out there are a lot of predictions that are so vague they could mean anything. It reminds me of a horoscope. When the predictions are vague enough, people can see anything they want in them. There’s some significant news item several times a week, so it’s not hard to post something like “watch for big news on Wednesday that’ll shock the market”, or something like that. When something happens, the QAnon believers say “See! QAnon predicted this!” When something happens on Tuesday or Thursday, they say “See! It happened! He was just off by a day!” So, the chances are pretty good. What makes this interesting to me is the sociological aspect to it. Even if it’s not real, it seems to rattle the establishment left. They’ve gone to great lengths to stomp out any online talk of QAnon as misinformation or election interference or whatever they’re banning users for this week. And, I think that’s actually lending it credibility. And who knows? Maybe it is real. But, either way, Trump supporters have picked up on the left’s annoyance and have embraced it. I imagine a fair amount of those are just trolling the left with it. But who knows? As I’ve asked people about it, I get a difference answer from everyone about what it is. It seems to be everything and nothing.
George Soros. Here we are back to what started this discussion. George Soros is a billionaire who’s using his money to influence policy and elections in Western nations. He puts big money into social justice organizations and he’s been spending big on local elections over the past several years. Races for things like county prosecutor or district attorney have drawn record donations from George Soros all over America. Which seemed very strange until rioting broke out in many of these cities this year and the Soros-backed DAs took pretty much the same approach of refusing to prosecute the rioters, or quickly letting them out of jail without bond and aggressively prosecuting innocent people caught up in the rioting. People like little old ladies on their way to doctor appointments or guys on their way home from work who refuse to stop for violent mobs blockading the highway. Or the McCloskeys in St. Louis. Or any of a number of other cases. When you see the results of what he’s been doing, it’s very clever and has had dramatic results. This is what Newt Gingrich was talking about when he was told by Fox News he would not be allowed to talk about George Soros. And his question was correct. “Why not? He’s the one paying for it!” referring to the riots. He’s right. And it’s not a conspiracy. But that’s the way it’s being treated by the left and the political establishment. Nobody is allowed to talk about it. And that’s what I meant when I said conspiracies are useful to bad people, because they can hide actual things they are doing among them and dismiss anyone who brings it up as being crazy. Soros and Gingrich is a perfect example. Soros’ campaign contributions to candidates in cities now being destroyed is not a myth. It’s not a rumor. It’s not a conspiracy. It’s actual numbers on campaign finance forms filed by the candidates’ committees. And there’s a pattern. Everywhere Soros gets someone elected, the wheels fall off civilization in those areas. And all for the same reason.
Gingrich is correct. It’s something that has to be addressed. American cities are burning, largely by a crowd of people that looks to be a lot the same individuals roaming from city to city. They're getting around, paying their bills and being supplied with helmets, gas masks, food, lodging and Molotov cocktails from some funding source. There seems to be an endless supply of those ridiculous black skinny jeans, too. The chaos in cities across the U.S. can't continue. Soros and others funding the breakdown of civilization is not a conspiracy and deserves a conversation and a closer look.
