Iranian Press Reports Snowden Documents Reveal Extraterrestrials In The U.S. Government

And you thought NSA spying was a big deal…but at least their agents are humanoid. Iran’s leading news agency Farsnews reports the true revelation from the Snowden leaks on their English-language site:

Former National Security Agency (NSA) contractor Edward Snowden revealed documents providing incontrovertible proof that an alien/extraterrestrial intelligence agenda is driving US domestic and international policy, and has been doing so since at least 1945, some media reports said.

Snowden’s documents further confirm, this report says, [aliens'] meetings in 1954 with US President Dwight D. Eisenhower where the “secret regime” currently ruling over America was established.

Most disturbingly, this FSB report warns, is that the [alien] agenda being implemented by the “secret regime” ruling the United States calls for the creation of a global electronic surveillance system meant to hide all true information about their presence here on earth as they enter into what one of Snowden’s documents calls the “final phase” of their end plan for total assimilation and world rule.

Inside The Right-Wing Love Affair With Conspiracy Theories

2012_Benghazi_attack_photo_montageCJ Werleman says “there’s a reason Benghazi hysteria just won’t go away,” writing for AlterNet via Salon:

The New York Times recently published what is arguably the most comprehensive examination of the events that took place leading up to the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi. The six-part, multimedia report is not only the most exhaustive account of the tragedy ever published by a major news organization, it is also completely apolitical. In other words, it revealed the truth. Yet right-wing conspiracy theorists refuse to believe it.

While the article hardly paints the administration in a positive light, it makes clear that right-wing, echo chamber-generated conspiracy theories have no basis in reality. Central to the right’s Benghazi narrative was the claim that President Obama, facing a fight for reelection, chose to lie and conceal the truth on Benghazi. In other words, the administration “knew” it was a carefully planned and orchestrated attack carried out by al-Qaeda, but instead chose to spin the story that it was a spontaneous protest carried out by a mob of Islamists, who were reacting to the release of anti-Muslim YouTube documentary.

Satirist Brendan O’Neill continues the theme of the day – whistleblowers – in this essay for the Telegraph:

What’s the difference between a whistleblower and a conspiracy theorist? Sometimes it can be very hard to tell.

This week, Annie Machon, former MI5 intelligence official, won praise for announcing that she is setting up a fund called Courage to help whistleblowers. According to Wired, the aim of the Courage Fund to Protect Journalistic Sources, to give it its full title, is to “encourage [more] whistleblowers to come forward” and spill the beans on the dastardly doings in the government or security department they work in. Ms Machon, who together with her then partner David Shayler left MI5 in 1996 and subsequently told the world about some of the dodgier things it was getting up to, was earlier this year included in a list of “brave whistleblowers” in the Guardian.

Canadians Skeptical of ‘Official’ 9/11 Theories

posterBBC News reports that Canadians are more partial to alternative theories of what really happened on 9/11/01 than Americans are:

An advertising campaign in Canada raises questions about the US government’s official account of the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001. Are Canadians more sympathetic to anti-American conspiracy theories than Americans themselves?

The posters, displayed on buses in Ottawa, show an image of a World Trade Center building collapsing in the inferno of the terrorist attack that morning.

The advertising campaign is supported by a Lafayette, California-based organisation called Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth.

The office tower, 7 World Trade Center, may have been destroyed in a controlled demolition, members of the organisation purport, rather than in a fire.

Frank Greening, a nuclear scientist who lives in Hamilton, Ontario, knows the people behind the organisation – truthers, as they are known – well. He first met them years ago.

Like them, he initially thought there was something more to the story of 9/11 than the US government let on.

All You Need To Know About The Illuminati

Owl of Minerva“You only have to look at that hand thing Jay Z does, or Lindsay Lohan’s tattoos, or the Guardian’s articles on quinoa to know that everyone is part of the great conspiracy” of the Illuminati, according to the firmly tongue-in-cheek PassNotes at The Guardian:

Name: The Illuminati.

Age: 237.

Appearance: A pyramid with an eye on it, a hand signal, a tattoo on a rapper’s back, a giant lizard dressed as the Queen. Take your pick.

Really? Are we still pretending that the Illuminati is a thing? Of course it’s a thing. Haven’t you seen the signs? Haven’t you read Dan Brown? Haven’t you heard We Do, the Stonecutters’ Song, from that episode of The Simpsons?

You’re referencing works of fiction here. It’s fact. He might look like a simpering, polo-necked millionaire, but Brown exposed the real truth about the Illuminati.

Which is? It’s a shadowy conspiracy that has existed since the dawn of time, secretly pulling the strings of every major organisation in the world.

Tila Tequila Fuels Conspiracy Theories

Remember Tila Tequila, the MySpace (what?) starlet? Well anyway she’s still garnering more than her share of attention but she has to make more and more outlandish claims. The Washington Post reports:

…Tequila’s claims are a special kind of explosive, a bizarre cocktail of the biggest fringe conspiracy theories and occult movements of the past several years. In a nutshell, she believes that:

1) She is descended from an alien race who came from the stars;

2) she is an angel, a queen, and possibly the latest iteration of the Egyptian goddess Isis;

3) she can travel through time and space and has, in the process, fallen in love with Nicola Tesla;

4) humanity is controlled by a “New World Order” composed of Illuminati, Satanists, Zionists and lizard-people;

5) this NWO has succeeded in engineering and covering up just about everything you think you know, including World War II, 9/11 and Paul Walker’s death;

6) a judgment day/reckoning/space battle is coming, in which Tila and her kind will fight the NWO to save the human race;

7) all of Tila’s Facebook haters, a.k.a.

Paul Walker Conspiracy: Illuminati or Drug Cartel Responsible?

Is there no limit the the dastardliness of the Illuminati? Latest conspiracy theory about their supposed nefarious activities via The Inquistr:

Paul Walker conspiracy theories are attempting to link Family Guy’s Brian the dog, Illuminati, and drug cartels in an awkward way of explaining the death of the Fast & Furious 7 star.

As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the death of Brian the dog led to conspiracy theories stating Seth MacFarlane might try and quit Family Guy.

One story going around has Paul Walker being killed by the Illuminati, a group that supposedly controls the world from the shadows. Why would they do this? Like many celebs, including Tim Tebow, Walker had been working with typhoon relief efforts in the Philippines. Supposedly the Illuminati was trying to poison medicine going to the country with “birth control” that would neuter the population and Walker found out about it.

More Moon Conspiracy Theories

Galileo moon phasesHot on the Jim Marrs’ post “Who Parked Our Moon” that resurfaced last week, now the highly respected science journal Nature gets in on the act of questioning just what the deal is with our moon. Author Robin Canup, associate vice-president of the Planetary Science Directorate of Southwest Research Institute, Boulder, Colorado, says current theories on the formation of the Moon owe too much to cosmic coincidences:

The Moon is more than just a familiar sight in our skies. It dictates conditions on Earth. The Moon is large enough to stabilize our planet’s rotation, holding Earth’s polar axis steady to within a few degrees. Without it, the current Earth’s tilt would vary chaotically by tens of degrees. Such large variations might not preclude life, but would lead to a vastly different climate.

Knowing how the Moon was made is central to understanding Earth and the formation of other planets.
