    It is a very interesting case for sure.

    It's definitely one of the more terroristic things that rings high on my possibly true list of conspiracies.

    Funny. It was one of the ones I first posted about. Interesting to hear someone else come out and say something.

    Here is a good theory... China will fund a separatist movement on the west coast which has all our tech companies fyi. They've been plundering it for years. Plus, this is a great launch pad for their future invasion.

    I never place too much stock in that History Channel photo, but I am more interested in the commemorative stamps the Marshall Islands published in 1987 that documented the crash based on local accounts.

    I remember watching the coverage immediately after the assassination on TV. I was with my cousin. Everyone was in shock, an entire nation in mourning. The only thing comparable to it since was the national shock of 9/11, and as stunning and horrific as that was, it falls short. So like everyone else able to do it, we were glued to the television. We watched Oswald escorted out and were cursing him. The shot rang out, “Oswald’s been shot! Lee Harvey Oswald has been shot!” was shouted by the newsman who had been quietly speaking before and during Oswald coming out of the station. We jumped up and cheered. It was only later that I realized just what a blow that was to the investigation into what was behind the assassination.

    so have I, I believe that
    • Oswald was the lone gunman
    • His first shot ricocheted off a traffic light signal, which was in the line of sight

    The Traficante-Marcelo-Hoffa trio conspiracy is interesting. The Mafia was at its peak at that time, so they were definitely capable.

    My conspiratorial theory is related to how governments will bury or overlook evidence that works against their interest. Prosecutors, AGs, Magistrate, Judges. Civil or criminal matters. It doesn't matter, they will ignore, obfuscate, deny all or part of evidence that hurts them. It also doesn't matter if these officials are Democrats or Republicans. Corruption makes no distinction between these two parties.

    If you haven't watched, please watch How to Fix a Drug Scandal on Netflix. Great documentary. After watching it, think about past events in your own life or someone you know that you think got ever railroaded.

    As things grow bigger the system escalates
    Small suppressions on the low end . . . builds into larger scale suppression.

    The system is awesome in its insidiousness

    I watched a doc on HBO called Who Killed Garrett Phillips and that destroyed any semblance of me thinking law enforcement always has our best interest at heart. Utterly depressing and downright scary.

    Came in to post that I probably can't think of any but will probably find out I do when people start naming things. Then I read the thread and discovered, no, I don't believe conspiracy theories. Epstein though...

    No one is perfect, but many of us try to do the right thing. It's just infuriating when organizations and the people in power engage in either outright cover ups or plain ignoring the evidence.

    Btw, without giving out spoilers, that documentary on Netflix shows that justice sometimes can be had, but it's a very slow process.

    Corrupt people are like roaches, shine a bright light and they run for cover.

    “That hot dog manufacturers have a secret agreement with the bun companies to produce different amounts of each product. I don’t know the numbers exactly, but for example, you need dogs for a cookout so you buy some, and the only available package size is 8 hot dogs. Then, you go and get some buns which only come in packs of 12. Therefore, once you cook your 8 hotdogs you still have leftover buns which means you will buy more hot dogs to use those buns and you will then have to buy more buns to use those hot dogs that were bought to finish the original buns. The cycle continues.”

    I've actually had conversations with people I trust about this that have left me believing this is exactly what happened.

    the illuminati is out to control every facet of our lives at any cost and tom cruise is our savior. scientology is his secret agency posing as a nut religious group, however deep underground it's like a super spy agency like imf. mankind don't even realize how many times they've been saved by tom cruise.

    It's interesting to look at some relatively new things that have been proven scientifically, but were long thought to be pseudoscience, myths, etc...

    Ball lightning
    Colossal/ Giant squid
    Water on Mars (ice/liquid)
    Sprites and Blue Jets (plasma that shoots up from big storms)
    Rogue waves
    Earthquake lights (not totally proven, but lots of video)

    That conspiracy sites like the reddit community or C2C AM are not about discussing actual conspiracies but to promote disinformation and discord to advance conservative agendas.

    The CIA has produced Manchurian Candidates - mind controlled assassins. I didn't really believe this until I started digging into it recently.

    I just listened to a Joe Rogan podcast that talked about CIA involvement with the Manson family. The short version is the CIA was sowing discord in the hippie movement to bring it to an end.

    That got me thinking about the theory that Sirhan Sirhan was a Manchurian Candidate when he killed Robert Kennedy. There is a lot of crossover between the two stories. I went down a rabbit hole and found this. A Harvard psychology professor who specializes in hypnotism and has analyzed Sirhan Sirhan many times is convinced he was programmed.



    One of the doctors who was heavily involved, Dr. Louis Jolyon West, was chairman of the Department of Psychiatry at UCLA. He analyzed Jack Ruby while he was in jail. Makes you go hmm.
