Are you a conspiracy theorist?Â If not, perhaps you should be.Â Yes, there have certainly been a lot of â€œconspiracy theoriesâ€ over the years that have turned out not to be accurate.Â However, the truth is that a large number of very prominent conspiracy theories have turned out to actually be true.Â So the next time that you run into some â€œtin foil hat wearing lunaticsâ€, you might want to actually listen to what they have to say.Â They may actually know some things that you do not.Â In fact, one recent study found that â€œconspiracy theoristsâ€ are actually more sane than the general population.Â So the next time you are tempted to dismiss someone as a â€œconspiracy theoristâ€, just remember that the one that is crazy might actually be you.Â The following are 16 popular conspiracy theories that turned out to be trueâ€¦
1. â€œThey Put Cancer Viruses Into Our Vaccinesâ€
When I first heard about this I did not believe it.Â And of course not all vaccines contain cancer viruses.Â But tens of millions of Americans did receive vaccines with cancer viruses in them, and now we have learned that even the CDC has admitted that this is trueâ€¦
The CDC has quickly removed a page from their website, which is nowÂ cached here, admitting that more than 98 million Americans received one or more doses of polio vaccine within an 8-year span when a proportion of the vaccine was contaminated with a cancer causing polyomavirus called SV40. It has been estimated that 10-30 million Americans could have received an SV40 contaminated dose of the vaccine.
SV40 is an abbreviation for Simian vacuolating virus 40 orÂ Simian virus 40, aÂ polyomavirusÂ that is found in both monkeys and humans. Like other polyomaviruses, SV40 is a DNA virus that has been found to cause tumors and cancer.
2. â€œATM Machines Will Someday Use Facial Recognition Technologyâ€
According to the Daily Mail, a new generation of ATM machines is being developed that will use cutting edge facial recognition technologyâ€¦
Cumbersome and slow cash machines with clunky buttons and tiny hard-to-see screens could soon be a thing of the past thanks to a range of next-generation ATMs.
Ohio-based security firm Diebold has created a touchscreen cash machine that works like a tablet computer, uses facial recognition and QR codes to identify and authenticate users, and has built-in safety cameras.
3. â€œThe U.S. Government And Monsanto Are Teaming Up Against Opponents Of Genetically-Modified Foodâ€
The establishment does not like those that are trying to stand in the way of genetically-modified food.Â The following is from a recent Activist Post articleâ€¦
A shocking new investigative report from the largest daily newspaper in Germany alleges that Monsanto, the US Military and the US government have colluded to track and disrupt both anti-GMO activists and independent scientists who study the adverse effects of genetically modified food.
As revealed yesterday by Sustainable Pulse, on July 13th the German newspaper SÃ¼ddeutsche Zeitung detailed information on how the US Government â€œadvances the interests of their corporations,â€ focusing on Monsanto as a prime example.
The report titled, â€œThe Sinister Monsanto Group: â€˜Agent Orangeâ€™ to Genetically Modified Corn,â€ described a â€˜new fangled cyber warâ€™ being waged against both eco-activists and independent scientists by supporters and former employees of Monsanto, who are described as â€œoperationally powerful assistantsâ€ and who have taken up sometimes high-ranking posts in the US administration, regulatory authorities, and some of whom have connections deep within the military industrial establishment, including the CIA.
4. â€œSomeday Scientists Will Be Using Millions Of Genetically-Modified Animals In Scientific Experimentsâ€
Did you know that literally millions of genetically-modified animals are being experimented on in labs all over the globe?â€¦
The number of genetically modified (GM) animals used in scientific research in Britain has exceeded the number of ordinary laboratory animals for the first time, according to official statistics that show a 9 per cent overall increase in the use of experimental animals last year.
Some 4,033,310 animals were used in scientific experiments started in 2012, an increase of 322,689, or 9 per cent over the previous year. There were 1.91 million scientific â€œproceduresâ€ used with GM animals in 2012 compared to 1.68.m procedures on normal animals.
5. â€œScientists All Over The World Are Creating Extremely Bizarre Human-Animal Hybridsâ€
Should scientists be creating beings that are part human and part animal?Â Well, it is happening all over the planet.Â Just check out some of the things thatÂ a recent Slate article says is happening in labs around the worldâ€¦
Not long ago, Chinese scientists embedded genes for human milk proteins into a mouseâ€™s genome and have since created herds of humanized-milk-producing goats. Meanwhile, researchers at the University of Michigan have a method for putting a human anal sphincter into a mouse as a means of finding better treatments for fecal incontinence, and doctors are building animals with humanized immune systems to serve as subjects for new HIV vaccines.
Pretty disgusting eh?
And here are some other ways that scientists are combining humans and animalsâ€¦
For much more on this, please see my previous article entitled â€œHuman-Animal Hybrids: Sick And Twisted Chimeras Are Being Created In Labs All Over The Planetâ€œ.
6. â€œObama Is Making Government Employees Spy On One Anotherâ€
Yes, this is actually happening.Â In a previous article, I described how Obama is forcing government workers to spy on the â€œlifestyles, attitudes and behaviorsâ€ of their fellow employeesâ€¦
Federal employees and contractors are asked to pay particular attention to the lifestyles, attitudes and behaviors â€“ like financial troubles, odd working hours or unexplained travel â€“ of co-workers as a way to predict whether they might do â€œharm to the United States.â€ Managers of special insider threat offices will have â€œregular, timely, and, if possible, electronic, accessâ€ to employeesâ€™ personnel, payroll, disciplinary and â€œpersonal contactâ€ files, as well as records of their use of classified and unclassified computer networks, polygraph results, travel reports and financial disclosure forms.
7. â€œPro Wrestling Is Fakeâ€
We have all kind of known this for a long time, right?Â Well, now someone is actually leaking the results of pro wrestling matches on the Internet before they happenâ€¦
A fan has provoked a furor in the world of professional wrestling after leaking the outcomes of 38 WWE matches ahead of the pay-per-view bouts.
The mystery fan, who identifies himself online as Dolphins1925, claims he has obtained the information from a source at Worldwide Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), and is revealing the results to highlight the organisationâ€™s failure to keep its storylines confidential.
Dolphins1925 started posting the results on Redditâ€™s pro-wrestling forum after another fan launched a â€œprediction seriesâ€, asking users for their picks ahead of the matches. He has since maintained a perfect record, even leaking the results of contests involving wrestling superstars such as John Cena and The Undertaker.
8. â€œSomeday Texas Is Going To Run Out Of Waterâ€
Texas will always have plenty of water, right?
According toÂ CNBC, the water crisis in some areas of Texas is rapidly reaching a breaking pointâ€¦
Three straight years of blistering drought have strained Texasâ€™ water resources. Some cities like Midland are already steeply raising their water prices. But itâ€™s not just residents of the Lone Star State feeling parched. Texas-based companies are scrambling to reduce their water usage and enact long-term water management plans as a critical business concern.
â€œAs the drought continues, industryâ€™s eyes are opening,â€ said Jordan Furnans, senior engineer at INTERA, a Texas-based geosciences and engineering firm. Those eyes are opening to discover that more dry years are coming, he said.
Thereâ€™s a desperate need for water to fuel industrial, chemical and energy operations in some parts of Texas. â€œIf plants shut down, theyâ€™re losing millions of dollars per day,â€ Furnans said.
9. â€œThe IRS Is Specifically Targeting Conservativesâ€
Only a small percentage of Americans would have believed this particular â€œconspiracy theoryâ€ last year.Â But now it is all over the news.Â In fact, we have just learned that applications for tax-exempt status from Tea Party groups were ordered to be sent toÂ the only Obama political appointee at the IRSâ€¦
IRS employees were ordered by their superiorsâ€“including Lois Lerner who pleaded the 5th Amendment against self-incrimination rather than testify in Congressâ€“to send certain Tea Party tax-exemption applications to the office of the IRSâ€™s Chief Counsel, which was headed by William Wilkins, who at that time was the only Obama political appointee at the IRS,Â according to a letter released today by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
â€œAs a part of this ongoing investigation, the Committees have learned that the IRS Chief Counselâ€™s office in Washington, D.C. has been closely involved in some of the applications,â€Â reads a letter released today by the House committees on Oversight and Government and Ways and Means. Â â€œIts involvement and demands for information about political activity during the 2010 election cycle appear to have caused systematic delays in the processing of Tea Party applications.â€
10. â€œFluoride Is Harmful For Your Teethâ€
This is a conspiracy theory that was denied for a very long time.Â But now evenÂ CNN is admitting the truthâ€¦
The Department of Health and Human Services and Environmental Protection Agency are proposing the change because of an increase in fluorosis â€” a condition that causes spotting and streaking on childrenâ€™s teeth.
11. â€œUsing A Cell Phone Can Cause Cancerâ€
Can you get cancer from using a cell phone?Â Well, an increasing number of studies indicate that this is actually trueâ€¦
At the highest exposure levels â€” using a mobile phone half an hour a day over a 10-year period â€” the study found a 40 percent increased risk of glioma brain tumors.
12. â€œPrescription Drugs Kill Large Numbers Of Americansâ€
Every single year, hundreds of thousands of Americans are killed by prescription drugs.Â The following is a brief excerpt from a Vanity Fair article entitled â€œDeadly Medicineâ€œâ€¦
Prescription drugs kill some 200,000 Americans every year. Will that number go up, now that most clinical trials are conducted overseasâ€”on sick Russians, homeless Poles, and slum-dwelling Chineseâ€”in places where regulation is virtually nonexistent, the F.D.A. doesnâ€™t reach, and â€œmistakesâ€ can end up in pauperâ€™s graves?
13. â€œThe Elite Want To Dramatically Reduce The Global Populationâ€
Yes, many among the global elite really do want to substantially reduce the population of the planet.Â The following quotes are from one of my previous articlesâ€¦
–David Rockefeller: â€œThe negative impact of population growth on all of our planetary ecosystems is becoming appallingly evident.â€
–CNN Founder Ted Turner: â€œA total world population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal.â€
–Paul Ehrlich, a former science adviser to president George W. Bush and the author of â€œThe Population Bombâ€: â€œTo our minds, the fundamental cure, reducing the scale of the human enterprise (including the size of the population) to keep its aggregate consumption within the carrying capacity of Earth is obvious but too much neglected or deniedâ€
-Barack Obamaâ€™s primary science adviser, John P. Holdren: â€œThe development of a long-term sterilizing capsule that could be implanted under the skin and removed when pregnancy is desired opens additional possibilities for coercive fertility control. The capsule could be implanted at puberty and might be removable, with official permission, for a limited number of births.â€
–HBO personality Bill Maher: â€œIâ€™m pro-choice, Iâ€™m for assisted suicide, Iâ€™m for regular suicide, Iâ€™m for whatever gets the freeway moving â€“ thatâ€™s what Iâ€™m for. Itâ€™s too crowded, the planet is too crowded and we need to promote death.â€
14. â€œInnocent People Are Murdered, Skinned And Dismembered During Satanic Ritualsâ€
Satanists really do exist, and sometimes they do really, really awful things.Â The following isÂ one recent exampleâ€¦
Moises Meraz-Espinoza walked into the Huntington Park Police Department two years ago to report a crime: He had killed his mother.
Officers went to the Maywood apartment that the then-18-year-old factory worker shared with his mother, Amelia Espinoza, 42, and found a gruesome scene. A trail of blood led to the bathroom, where plastic covered the walls and floor. There, they found an electrical circular saw with pieces of bone, blood and flesh stuck to the blade. Nearby, in a freezer, police found skin and muscles stored in plastic bags. The womanâ€™s skull, with all her teeth plucked out, her eyes removed and two upside-down crosses carved into the bone, was stashed in a backpack.
Prosecutors say that Meraz-Espinoza strangled his mother and then skinned, filleted and dismembered her body as part of a satanic ritual.
15. â€œThe NSA Is Spying On Our Phone Calls, Internet Searches And Financial Transactionsâ€
Thanks to Edward Snowden, we have learned much more about how the NSA spies on all of us.Â And just this week it has come out that the NSA has no problem snooping on you if you are a friend of a friend of a friend of someone that might be a potential terroristâ€¦
Chris Inglis, the agencyâ€™s deputy director, was one of several government representativesâ€”including from the FBI and the office of the Director of National Intelligenceâ€”testifying before the House Judiciary Committee this morning. Most of the testimony largely echoed previous testimony by the agencies on the topic of the governmentâ€™s surveillance, including a retread of the same offered examples for how the Patriot Act and Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act had stopped terror events.
But Inglisâ€™ statement was new. Analysts look â€œtwo or three hopsâ€ from terror suspects when evaluating terror activity, Inglis revealed.Â Previously, the limit of how surveillance was extended had been described as two hops. This meant that if the NSA were following a phone metadata or web trail from a terror suspect, it could also look at the calls from the people that suspect has spoken withâ€”one hop. And then, the calls that second person had also spoken withâ€”two hops. Terror suspect to person two to person three. Two hops. And now: A third hop.
16. â€œThe Federal Reserve Is A Perpetual Debt Machine That Is Designed To Create Inflationâ€
The Federal Reserve is a private banking cartel that was created by the bankers and that serves the interest of the bankers.Â It was designed to perpetually increase the U.S. national debt and to perpetually create inflation.Â Unfortunately, it has done a great job on both counts.Â Since the Federal Reserve was created back in 1913, the U.S. national debt has gottenÂ more than 5000 times larger, and the value of the U.S. dollar has fallen by more than 96 percent.
Are there any other â€œconspiracy theoriesâ€ that you would add to this list?Â Please feel free to join the discussion by posting a comment belowâ€¦
