Conspiracy theories are all the rage

How’s this for a conspiracy theory: The U.S. and Russian (i.e. Soviet) governments have been working together since 1947 to conceal the existence of extra-terrestrial beings and their space craft. Yep, a trip to Mars is being planned to seek out alien bases there,

A lot of evidence points to this: in 2012 in a moment when two world leaders didn’t know their mics were live, President Obama told then president of Russia Dmitry Medvedev to tell Vladimir Putin to “Give me space.” Yep, that’s right. Obama wanted space for the U.S. so we could do our thing with the aliens and their technology. Medvedev told Obama Vladimir would understand.

Then earlier this year President Trump announced we would be creating a Space Force, something the Russians have been talking about for over a century.

Donald Trump only appears to be Putin’s puppet in order to distract the public from the joint space operations of our two nations. This is big, way big. And folks, this is the real reason the Deep State exists: to facilitate the U.S. side of the planned militarization of space, the final frontier. Where only Gene Roddenberry, Arthur C. Clarke, Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, Harlan Ellison — and others — have dreamed to go. And quite frankly, it’s a good bet that some of them, like Clarke and Roddenberry, were part of the conspiracy, showing us which way to go, in terms of technology and philosophy.

How much of their once fiction is now reality? From the Star Trek communications we now have wireless, hand-held phones that not only allow us to talk with one another, we can search for information on the World Wide Web — a military invention — and we can take pictures and video!

This hasn’t been without casualties of course. Philp K. Dick had a “heart attack” on the set of the first Blade Runner. What do we know about that, really? And would you trust the MSM account of what happened? Anyone who knows anything about science fiction knows Dick always wrote about dystopian futures where the One World Government — One World Order if you like — controlled the lives of the masses, dishing out beautiful and satisfying distractions so the populace wouldn’t get curious about what was really going on.

Is it too much of a stretch to believe the One World Order — the Deep State — silenced one of its most popular critics?

Maybe. I didn’t even make all of that up. Ancient Aliens was on in the wee hours and two consecutive episodes — yes, they run concurrently in the wee hours — were about this alleged plan between the two nations to conceal aliens. It was really great for anyone looking for a good conspiracy theory to mull over. No skeptic could resist the title of the one episode: Russia Declassified. The producers put it all out there in the meta description: “A secret alliance hidden in plain sight. Joint space missions with undisclosed agendas. Have the United States and Russia been working together from the very beginning of the Space Race — in preparation for the ultimate extraterrestrial encounter?”

Watch it and then you tell me. Let’s be real: who really built all the ancient pyramids around the world and why do they all emit vibrations at the same frequency? And what were those strange objects in the sky that I witnessed, once stone cold sober while in boot camp.

Of course it could be yet another distraction from the tsunami that’s traveling in the direction of the White House and Trump Tower in New York. Is that any crazier than the conspiracy theories he tweets about because some of his followers uttered them first? How about the one that had President Obama’s administration hot wiring Trump Tower? Or the one that had Ted Cruz’s dad helping Lee Harvey Oswald kill President John Kennedy? Then of course there was that birther thing that put Trump on the political map.

In this actual, but only alleged, conspiracy:

Two of President Trump’s closest advisors convicted on eight counts each. Michael Cohen claiming in his allocution (after pleading guilty to the eight charges) the president directed him to pay off Stormy Daniels and to do so to hide it so as not to interfere with the 2016 election.

Paul Manafort waited for the decision of the jury on 18 counts, getting convicted on eight. He stayed quiet the entire time. Now he’s facing more charges in the District of Columbia court. The president is dangling a pardon in front of him. Trump did an interview with Ainsley Earhardt for Fox and Friends and she asked him about the recent convictions of Manafort and Cohen. Trump told the reporter, “For 30, 40 years I’ve been watching flippers. Everything’s wonderful and then they get 10 years in jail and they -— they flip on whoever the next highest one is, or as high as you can go. it almost ought to be outlawed. It’s not fair.”

And speaking about Manafort and a possible pardon directly, Trump said, “I have great respect for what he’s done in terms of what he’s going through.”

He has great respect for the guy who was on the payroll of a Ukrainian strong man leader, President Viktor Yanukovych who was a lackey for Vladimir Putin. He eventually fled to Russia when the populace revolted. Manafort also worked for Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska, a close friend of Putin.

That’s who Trump respects because Manafort didn’t flip, didn’t roll over on Trump. He isn’t a “rat.” Not like Cohen … and David Pecker, the publisher of the National Inquirer. The man with the safe full of secrets. It’s probably nothing like Pink Floyd’s Saucer Full of Secrets. And Trump’s real fixer, his accountant, the company CFO Allen Weisselberg was granted immunity to testify. Looks like Al flipped a while ago. He’s been talking to the Special Counsel’s office.

Manafort not talking and facing decades of prison time; Cohen, Pecker and Weisselberg singing like the three canaries of Manhattan.

The real conspiracy is being exposed drip by drip and Trump is getting more hysterical with his tweets.

And this one … ahh, what?

Time Magazine has that series of three covers showing President Trump getting engulfed by the gathering storm and flood of bad news.

The walls are closing in on President Trump. His lackeys in Congress, which now includes Senators Graham and Grassley in deep, are talking about pushing their old pal Jeff Sessions out of of the Attorney General office. What the heck, Trump wants it. No one wants to stand in his way now, what with the Blue Wave coming — and Senator John McCain spirited off this mortal coil — Republicans need all the support and votes they can get. Saying “No” to Trump before the election could cost someone a re-election.

Democrats are between a pile of steaming shit and and a dead skunk. They are all horrified by his family separation policy, but they don’t like the idea of the president trying to interfere in the Special Counsel’s investigation. Should they support Sessions? O Dear …

I don’t know, that whole Ancient Aliens thing isn’t such a bad theory.

Tim Forkes

Tim Forkes started as a writer on a small alternative newspaper in Milwaukee called the Crazy Shepherd. Writing about entertainment, he had the opportunity to speak with many people in show business, from the very famous to the people struggling to find an audience. In 1992 Tim moved to San Diego, CA and pursued other interests, but remained a freelance writer. Upon arrival in Southern California he was struck by how the elected government officials and business were so intertwined, far more so than he had witnessed in Wisconsin. His interest in entertainment began to wane and the business of politics took its place. He had always been interested in politics, his mother had been a Democratic Party official in Milwaukee, WI, so he sat down to dinner with many of Wisconsin’s greatest political names of the 20th Century: William Proxmire and Clem Zablocki chief among them. As a Marine Corps veteran, Tim has a great interest in veteran affairs, primarily as they relate to the men and women serving and their families. As far as Tim is concerned, the military-industrial complex has enough support. How the men and women who serve are treated is reprehensible, while in the military and especially once they become veterans. Tim would like to help change that. Contact the author.
