The Absurdity of The Conspiracy Theory Fallacy
When Facts And Reality Give Way To Cover-ups And Lies
NewsFocus, by Tim Watts 070409
When it comes to high crimes against the people,
a mantra often used by the guilty in order to diminish the
allegations against them, or from the ignorant who refuse to
entertain the evil of an organized cabal, is the label of “conspiracy
theory.” It is a term that has been methodically marketed
to pre-condition the public into wrongly believing that
conspiracy theory is a bad thing. This intentionally defined
derogatory expression is coined from two simple words,
“conspiracy” and “theory.” Let’s take a quick moment
to look at each of these two words.
n., pl. -cies. 1. The act of conspiring. 2. an evil,
unlawful, treacherous, or surreptitious plan formulated in
secret by two or more persons; plot. 3. a combination of persons
for a secret, unlawful, or evil purpose. 4. Law. an
agreement by two or more persons to commit a crime, fraud, or
other wrongful act. 5. any concurrence in action; combination in
bringing about a given result. (see conspire)
conspirative, conspiratorial, conspiratory,
a coherent group of general
propositions used as principles of explanation for a class of
phenomena. 2. a proposed explanation whose status is still
conjectural, in contrast to well-established propositions that
are regarded as reporting matters of actual fact. 3. Hypothesis
(Einstein's theory of relativity, Scientific theory, chaos
Each of the
above definitions is easily understandable and unarguably a
legitimate word in its own right. Of the two, conspiracy
seems to have been given the worst rap, yet, by its own
definition, it is as valid and credible as any word there is, an
expression quite easily supported by the very nature of good
versus evil. For conspiracy to be cavalierly disregarded as
pure folly is to disregard the legitimate premise of the
In all reality a conspiracy takes place somewhere
on this planet every single day. To disregard conspiracy
is blind ignorance and absolute naive foolishness.
Some officials in positions of authority want us
to refuse to entertain conspiracy, as if it were sheer lunacy,
but what they disregard with this disingenuous ruse is that many
throughout history have died for ideals and money. Power, greed
and lust have done much to try the human soul.
Yet many have been beguiled into refusing to entertain
conspiracy, even though most understand and believe that true
evil really does exist in our world.
Do conspiracy debunkers honestly think that true evil is
simply too stupid to organize an agenda?
large coups and crimes are generally perpetrated by more than
one person. It is rare indeed for most large crimes to be
organized and executed by a singular entity, so to claim that
conspiracies (two or more persons) do not exist is undeniably ludicrous, if not simply
in government clearly seem to reserve the right to label what a
conspiracy is and what isn’t. A look back through time reveals
much in this regard.
Instances Where Government Actions Could Be
Considered As "Conspiracy"
The definition of conspiracy clearly fits for the following
historic events. Look at these events with the official line
that was fed to us at the time.
If we were to believe the first story told to us by
government, then a foreign born conspiracy would be responsible
for these events. So where is the argument in that? No problem
from a government perspective, but the minute the finger gets
pointed the other way, conspiracy suddenly becomes a very
uncomfortable dirty word.
Those daring to challenge the official government story
are routinely labeled as conspiracy theorists, but history often has
a way of revealing the real truth.
Sinking of the Maine
– (leading to the Spanish-American war)
The new US excuse for the sinking of the Maine has been given
as explosives stored near the hot steam room, not a Spanish
mine which the US originally claimed as the impetus for the
war. It would seem the conflict could now more appropriately be
named the American-Spanish war.
Sinking of the Lusitania
– (leading to World War I)
US is said to have given the Germans information that the
Lusitania was carrying a secret cargo of weapons. A German
U-boat then sank the ship, giving the US the excuse to
enter into World War I. Germany learned of plan and took out
NY Times ad warning people.
– (leading to World War II)
According to Admiral Kimmel, the US had broken the Japanese
codes and knew in advance exactly when and where the attack
would begin. The US moved key ships out to sea and is said to
the attacks to take place, justifying its war presence and the
eventual use of nuclear
weapons which resulted in a long-sought place of world military
prominence for the US.
Gulf of Tonkin
– (leading to the Viet Nam War)
The US claimed that the North Vietnamese launched torpedoes at
the destroyer Maddox in the Gulf of Tonkin. Former Secretary
of Defense Robert McNamara later admitted that the attack had
never happened. Essentially, the US involvement in the Viet
Nam War was based on a lie.
First Iraq War
(leading to the Gulf War)
The US told
Saddam it was okay to take over Kuwait and seize their oil
fields. We even sold them the poison gas to attack Kuwait
with. The Kuwaiti Ambassador’s daughter in Washington falsely
posed as an Iraqi nurse, claiming babies were taken from
incubators and left to die on the cold floor. She was said to be coached by DC
ad firm, Hill & Knowlton.
1993 World Trade Center
Bombing - The FBI was intimately involved, using Ramzi Youseff
as bait to coerce a terrorist attack. The FBI supplied real
bomb material, rather than fake explosives. Youseff became alarmed and
contacted others in regards to this. The FBI allowed the bomb
to go off in the WTC.
1995 Oklahoma City Bombing - The ATF was tipped
off not to show up for work the day of the attack, yet a
Murrah Building daycare center was never notified.
– (leading to Afghanistan War and Iraq War) The Project For a
New American Century (PNAC), a treatise detailing a plan for
US dominance in the world. A neo-con group wrote that this
plan would take years to achieve, unless of course there was a
new Pearl Harbor-type event. Shortly after, we had the 9/11 attacks.
This event has produced numerous evidentiary oddities that
question how Osama bin Laden or Al Qaeda could have pulled off
the attacks and the controlled demolition of three WTC towers,
one not hit by plane, none burning from top to
bottom, yet all collapsing conveniently into their own
basements at near free fall speed, through the path of most
resistance. Note: The
Afghanistan War and Iraq War were both planned long
before 9/11. Curiously, FEMA showed up in NYC the night before
9/11, as testified to by Ray Kenney.
Maine incident and the fact that the military is generally much
smarter with the storage of its munitions, it would seem that
every one of these events would have required more than one
person to execute the complex planning that was needed to carry
out each event. This would undeniably be, by definition, an
outright conspiracy, whether on the part of a foreign
power or unscrupulous forces within our government. Unless one
person was responsible for each of these events, they must be
Every one of
these events is not what the public was told, yet no matter who
was responsible, they all boil down to bona fide conspiracies,
with two or more persons involved. None of these historical
events could possibly have been the work of just one person.
The DOJ Prosecutes "Conspiracy" 24/7, 365 -
Conspiracy is simply two or more persons coming together to
plot a crime. The DOJ certainly knows that. So, it's
interesting that the only time the US government cries
conspiracy is when someone points the finger at them.
President Kennedy Assassination -
The 1976 US House of
Representatives (House) Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA)
concluded that Kennedy was indeed more than likely killed
through a "conspiracy."
FBI Perpetrates Terror Plans - Since 9/11, the
only terror plots the FBI has broken up were initiated and
orchestrated by the FBI, enticing a potential suspect with a
plan devised by them.
TSA Airport Scanners - Documents reveal that
former DHS head Michael Chertoff is a principle investor in
the company that makes the airport scanners, showing a clear
case of improper business collusion.
In light of
the facts presented, for some to
claim that the US is not capable of a false flag
operation is grossly ingenuous at best and blatantly ignorant in
the very least.
recently revealed Operation Northwoods document. Some in the US
government concocted a plan in 1964 to either sink a boat or
shoot down an airliner near Cuba in order to go to war with that
country. This unscrupulously planned provocation is well
documented and easily verified today. It proves without dispute
that there are indeed factions within the US government who
scheme deviously to achieve nationalist and/or capitalist goals at the expense
and careless disregard for human life.
within government are implicated or caught in the act of heinous
deeds, they immediately paint those making the allegations as
conspiracy theorists. In a calculated fashion they carefully
insinuate that any charges are totally unfounded and without
merit. The inference they intentionally work to convey is that
those who have uncovered the truth are mentally unstable and not
reliable sources to be believed. Whether it be Pearl Harbor, MLK,
JFK, RFK, or 9/11, the tactic is always the same, discredit
words. That’s all it seems to take these days to discount the
truth, but if you consider the nonsense in the argument, or
therein the actual lack of a tenable argument, it’s quite
easy to see the absurdity in such a weak premise.
Why is it
okay for some in the government to cry conspiracy when they
want, yet at the same time negate the theories of others
when they claim there could be a government conspiracy?
here is, conspiracy, by its definition, is okay with the
government when it
is assigned by official sources, but clearly it is not
considered plausible when suggested by those that are not
in a position of power. How is this justified?
appears to be a double-standard which can only weigh heavily
against "we the people" when dealing with government.

because it truly does exist in our world.
Some on the
other hand don’t want us to believe in the reality of evil or
bad intentions. Some would have us look the other way or totally
disregard accusations of egregious criminal behavior by giving
simple words an unsavory connotation, neutering their validity
and the charges of those who would levy them.
To spin an
old saying, “sticks and stones may break bones, but words
will never hurt you,” especially if “conspiracy” and
“theory” are involved. Unless of course you have the
ability to reason on your own and realize the absurdity of the
conspiracy theory fallacy.

having a contrarian point of view. It merely denotes a
sad fact of life.
To all the

the Examiner, the Post and the Times, to CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, FOX
and the likes of corporate mouthpieces such as Ted Koppel, Diane
Sawyer, Charlie Gibson, Wolf Blitzer, Anderson Cooper, Campbell
Brown, Joe Scarborough and a countless horde of others, to talk blowhards
like Rush Limbaugh, as well as numerous shills such as Neil Cavuto, Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity… conspiracy is a
legitimate word. If only they would take the time to look it up between
make-up and blow-comb sessions. If they continue to refuse to
entertain it or give it the proper respect with which it is
owed, then just maybe, quite possibly, they are also part of it.
