Conspiracy Theories as Psy-Ops

James Clair Lewis wrote back in 2009:

Much has been made in the Conspiracy Theories about how the Illuminati control the world, and are also seeking total world domination. You can’t have that both ways. Either they control everything, or they don’t. Well, they don’t, but they sure would like to.

I’ve been aware of the Conspiracy Theories since the late 1960s, and I most certainly enjoyed the Illuminatus fiction books by Robert Shea, and Robert Anton Wilson, which became very popular during the mid 1970s, and early 1980s. Those books managed to include just about every Conspiracy Theory around from all sources imaginable, and maybe from a few sources which aren’t imaginable at that!

Now if you really, really dig into these Conspiracy Theories, you will find two things :

A) Some come from people doing real researching into skullduggery in high places. These get little press, and are soon forgotten.

Here Comes The Carbon Tax

Confirming the worst fears of the New World Order conspiracy crowd, it seems that newly re-elected U.S. President Obama may now push for a carbon tax, per a report from British bank HSBC, as reported by Bloomberg News:

Barack Obama may consider introducing a tax on carbon emissions to help cut the U.S. budget deficit after winning a second term as president, according to HSBC Holdings Plc.

A carbon tax starting at $20 a ton of carbon dioxide equivalent and rising at about 6 percent a year could raise $154 billion by 2021, Nick Robins, an analyst at the bank in London, said today in an e-mailed research note, citing Congressional Research Service estimates…

So This Is What Makes Conspiracy Theorists Tick

“Because it’s part of our national identity,” eh? Well that’s what “expert” Professor Mark Fenster says, anyway, as part of a report at NPR:

From birthers to jobbers to those who believe pollsters are in cahoots with President Obama, some on the right have been gaining a reputation as particularly prone to conspiracy theories.

But the last time a Republican was in the White House, the party of conspiracy was often reversed. And there are still some who maintain that President Bush stole the 2000 election and planned the Sept. 11 attacks.

Conspiracy theory experts say that the tendency toward distrust of power is neither uniquely partisan nor entirely detrimental. In fact, they say, it’s par for the course for minority political parties.

And Mark Fenster, a professor at the University of Florida and author of Conspiracy Theories: Secrecy and Power In American Culture, says that not all conspiracy theories are created equal.

Every End is a New Beginning: Happy Death Day to Al Bielek, Philadelphia Experiment and Montauk Visionary

October 10, 2012 marks the 1 year anniversary of the death and passing through the astral plane of Al Bielek, a conspiracy theory icon known for his contribution to the legends of the Philadephia Experiment and the Montauk Project.  Bielek claimed he began recovering memories of his involvment in the secret U.S. government research programs after seeing the movie The Philadelphia Experiment in 1988.  He went public in 1989, and cemented his legend in a classic interview with Art Bell on Coast to Coast AM in 1993. 

While serving as a Navy engineer during WWII, Bielek claimed he witnessed the events of the legendary Philadelphia Experiment(s) of 1943, in which it is alleged the U.S.S. Eldridge, while docked in the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard, was rendered invisible during the initial experiment, then accidently teleported to Norfolk, Virginia in the follow-up experiment .  According to legend, upon the vessel’s reappearances some sailors on the ship experienced strong psychological disturbances, while others were tragically embedded into the metal structures of the ship.  It has been suggested that these experiments were carried out using intense electromagnetic fields, and were based on secret discoveries into the Unified Field Theory made by Albert Einstein, Nikola Tesla, John von Neumann and other scientific leaders of the 20th century. 

Bielek also claimed that he later became involved with the Montauk Project, an alleged continuation of research into the areas of teleportation, time travel, and various areas of parapsychology (including telepathy, telekinesis and mind control) based on the discoveries made during the Philadelphia Experiment and other, post-WWII research projects.  During his time in the Montauk Project, Bielek claimed to have been the Operations Manager for experiments involving the “Montauk Chair” in the 1970′s, and when time travel programs became operational in the 1980′s, travelled to 100,000 B.C., 6037 A.D., and Mars. 

Here is video of a presentation by Al Bielek called From Philadelphia to Phoenix: The Psychotronic Connection, from the 1991 USPA (United States Psychotronic Association) Conference:

Jack Welch’s ‘Cook The Books’ Conspiracy Theory

It takes one to know one comes to mind. Tommy Christopher on the tarred former GE CEO’s conspiracy tweet, at Mediaite:

The uninformed perceptions of the voting public giveth, and the uninformed perceptions of the voting public taketh away. After exactly one day of basking in the glow of a hideous-lie-powered victory in Wendesday night’s debate, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney was dealt a blow Friday morning when September’s jobs report saw the unemployment rate plunge to 7.8%. Conservatives aren’t taking this lying down, led by Romney booster and former GE CEO Jack Welchwho tweeted that this is all the work of “these Chicago guys.”

“Unbelievable jobs numbers..these Chicago guys will do anything..can’t debate so change numbers,” Welch tweeted, making the job of Romney surrogates that much tougher by calling them “unbelievable,” and causing a sigh of relief from the members of the bands Styx and Foreigner, who are actually the ones behind the conspiracy to cook the jobs numbers.

The Paranoid Style in Russian Politics

Picture: zscout370 (CC)

In a recent Op-Ed for the Moscow Times, author and translator Richard Lourie updates Richard Hofstadter’s famous thesis about the role of paranoia in American Politics with a focus on current goings on in the Kremlin:

Is President Vladimir Putin the Russian Mitt Romney? He certainly seems to see the United States as Russia’s “No. 1 foe.” The question, as always, is how much of this is sincere and how much is an attempt to manipulate the populace for domestic political reasons? This may be one of the rare cases in which cynicism is preferable to sincerity.

. . .

Russia’s friends in the West — and it may have more than it sometimes thinks — must do what they can to prevent the Kremlin’s current paranoid style from producing negative foreign policy consequences in the real world. Americaphobia in Russia can easily spark Russophobia in the West, which, as Romney’s remarks demonstrate, still has its knee-jerk adherents.

The Conspiracy Mockumentary

Here we go again, another Hollywood movie (well it’s sort of indie, but still being released by a big studio) making conspiracy theorists out to be completely crazy. On the other hand, the trailer makes it look a whole lot better than the Mel Gibson attempt at the same.

The Conspiracy is directed by Christopher McBride and features Aaron Poole, James Gilbert, Peter Apostolopoulos, Angela Besharah, and Laura de Carteret. The official synopsis: “A documentary about conspiracy theories takes a horrific turn after the filmmakers uncover an ancient and dangerous secret society.”
