We’re approaching the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, an event that wrenched this nation and spawned countless conspiracy theories. Was Kennedy killed by the Cubans? The CIA? The Mafia? The military-industrial complex? Time to spread your blanket on a grassy knoll and examine these 10 conspiracy theories:
- Some Pakistanis doubt the story of Malala Yousafzai, the teenager who received worldwide support after she was shot and wounded by the Taliban for promoting the education of girls. Suspicion that she is a CIA plant or a greedy hoaxer is so common in Pakistan that a journalist there ridiculed doubters with a satirical piece revealing that Malala’s “real name was Jane” and that the DNA in her earwax showed that she was “probably from Poland.” But other media outlets missed the joke, citing the report as yet more evidence of the Malala plot.

For all you conspiracy skeptics who wondered just how David Icke knows that reptilian overlords are governing our lives, the Atlantic Wire reveals his secrets, explaining that although “Icke doesn’t describe how to spot someone who has been manipulated by/merged with a reptilian — probably to protect his lucrative speaking circuit revenues — others have”:

As 12 million Americans “know,” the United States government is run by lizard people (or, to be scientifically accurate, reptilians). But they never said which members of the government are the reptilians. So we’re here to help.
Piecing together the latest groundbreaking research being conducted by commenters at conspiracy websites, we’ve been able to isolate a number of prominent individuals who possess reptilian-compatible bloodlines. As “ufochick”writes at DavidIcke.com (Icke is a prominent reptile theorist, as evidenced by his book at right), even if a person has compatible bloodlines, “they will not become a reptilian unless a reptilian entity inhabits their physical body.”
Or maybe it isn’t important.
Conspiracy theories destroying democracy? Yeah, well that’s what they’d want you to think.

The more information we have about what governments and corporations are up to the less we seem to trust them. Will conspiracy theories eventually destroy democracy?
What if I told you I had conclusive proof that the moon landings were faked, but I had been told to keep it under wraps by my BBC bosses acting under orders from the CIA, NSA and MI6. Most of you would think I had finally lost my mind.
But, for some, that scenario – a journalist working for a mainstream media organisation being manipulated by shadowy forces to keep vital information from the public – would seem entirely plausible, or even likely.
We live in a golden age for conspiracy theories. There is a growing assumption that everything we are told by the authorities is wrong, or not quite as it seems.
Abby Martin speaks with BTS producer Manuel Rapalo about a few of the most shocking US government conspiracies that turned out to be true.
Arthur Goldwag tells us that the conservative mindset is in decline while stories of cabals and secret plots provide comfort as its power wanes, at Salon:

What just happened in Washington?
Ask a true conservative believer, and they’ll tell you that it was the birth of a terrible beauty. They’ll say the GOP’s true leaders, our nation’s future leadership, revealed itself in all its splendid, futile glory—only to be stabbed in the back by a “thundering herd of chicken-hearted Republicans in Name Only (RINOs) galloping to the Left.”
If you asked me, I would say that we witnessed a recrudescence of a nihilistic tendency that has never been far from the surface in American politics—a conservatism that is as far from the dictionary definition of conservatism as Obama is from being a socialist. Last fall, on the eve of the election, I wrote in Salon that “America is becoming more multicultural, more gay-friendly and more feminist every day.
As the House finished their vote to reopen the federal government and raise the debt ceiling, a House stenographer decided it was a good time to let everyone know her feelings about God, Congress, and the Freemasons. “The greatest deception here is that this is not one nation under God. The Constitution would not have been written by Freemasons. They go against God. You cannot serve two masters,” the stenographer yelled into the microphone as she was dragged off by security. The stenographer, identified as Dianne Reidy, was interviewed by Capitol police after the incident, according to Fox News.
Jesse Ventura joins disinformation’s Gary Baddeley once again to discuss his new book, They Killed Our President: 63 Facts That Prove a Conspiracy to Kill JFK. In addition to agreeing that Lee Harvey Oswald was the one person who almost certainly didn’t assassinate JFK, they discuss the Government shutdown, Jesse’s plans to run for president in 2016 with Howard Stern, and his new show for Ora.tv.
Abby Martin speaks with former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura, about his new book ‘ They Killed our President’, going over the most compelling reasons why he thinks the assassination of JFK was a conspiracy, Bin Laden’s death, and his potential presidential run in 2016 with Howard Stern.
Given the mess that the farthest right wing of the American Republican party is causing in Washington right now, this study might not come as too much of a surprise, but researchers Stephan Lewandowsky, Gilles E. Gignac and Klaus Oberauer find that American conservatives have become increasingly skeptical of science since the 1970s, publishing their study, “The Role of Conspiracist Ideation and Worldviews in Predicting Rejection of Science,” in PLOSone. This is the abstract:

Among American Conservatives, but not Liberals, trust in science has been declining since the 1970’s. Climate science has become particularly polarized, with Conservatives being more likely than Liberals to reject the notion that greenhouse gas emissions are warming the globe. Conversely, opposition to genetically-modified (GM) foods and vaccinations is often ascribed to the political Left although reliable data are lacking. There are also growing indications that rejection of science is suffused by conspiracist ideation, that is the general tendency to endorse conspiracy theories including the specific beliefs that inconvenient scientific findings constitute a “hoax.”

In this video Luke Rudkowski randomly sees CNN’s Piers Morgan walking down the street in NYC and decides to do an impromptu interview.
The interview starts off on an interesting note when conspiracies are brought up and Piers with his staff decide to make jokes instead of addressing serious conspiracies like the Gulf of Tonkin. Piers in this video refuses to acknowledge any historical conspiracies and decides to divert the conversation.
