8 Revelations From 2016 That Completely Vindicate “Conspiracy Theorists”

GovernmentConspiracyBy Claire Bernish

It could easily be said 2016 has been the year so-called conspiracy theorists were vindicated — and we aren’t yet five months in.

Before explaining why that is the case, make no mistake — the term conspiracy theorist originated with the CIA as an effort to discredit viable theories from credible people who chanced upon the truth.

First revealed by the New York Times in 1976, pursuant to a Freedom of Information Act request, the CIA had written a dispatch of its “psychological operations” — disinformation — specifically to “provide material countering and discrediting the claims of the conspiracy theorists, so as to inhibit the circulation of such claims in other countries” and to “employ propaganda assets to refute the attacks of the critics.”

That said, 2016 thus far has proven remarkable for the sheer volume of information brought to light by people, events, and the general crumbling of the deep-seated establishment narrative — and it’s no small matter for those whose claims had previously been met with scorn and derision.

Following are just eight items of erstwhile contention, which 2016 has confirmed for posterity — and perhaps to the ultimate detriment of the establishment paradigm.

1. Though trading a pinch of liberty for an ounce of security has never panned out for anyone but government, people continue to allow the fuzzy blanket feel of increased ‘protection’ from terrorism to cloud their perception of possible future outcomes. Such has been the case with the insidious PATRIOT Act, whose repercussions from blanket, indiscriminate surveillance culminated this year in a gloriously horrible way.

In March, it was divulged that domestic law enforcement will now have access to information swept up by the National Security Agency’s broad net of data collection performed on all Americans. Shocking though that may be, global tumult in recent years — which naturally has begun to sweep the U.S. — evidences a paranoid and increasingly fascistic government in decline. Its imperative need at this point wholly comprises self-preservation.

What better way to effect and maintain control than to have its every enforcement arm keen to those who might organize sufficiently to oust said government from its pedestal of power. Of course, when Edward Snowden first revealed the NSA’s dubiously extensive program, privacy rights advocates suspected there would be more to follow — and now we know.

“What does this rule change mean for you?” queried the ACLU. “In short, domestic law enforcement officials now have access to huge troves of American communications, obtained without warrants, that they can use to put people in cages.”

2. While it’s entirely likely eyes will roll at first mention of the name Rothschild, 2016 saw substantiation of theories the notorious banking family claims nearly direct ties with the government — in particular, Hillary Clinton.

Ongoing, sporadic disclosures of Clinton’s ostensible personal email account have been indexed and made searchable by WikiLeaks — and thankfully so, considering the files comprise thousands of documents. An arbitrary search performed by The Free Thought Project for some conspiracy theorists’ ‘favorite’ family names revealed a doting relationship between Clinton and Lynn Forester de Rothschild.

“I remain your loyal adoring pal,” Rothschild penned in one email. Another graciously thanks Clinton for “personally reaching out to us,” and adds, “You are the best, and we remain your biggest fans.” Clinton signs one response to Rothschild, “Much love, H.”

Though, as reported, nothing overtly nefarious jumps out from this search, it’s worth recalling this gushing friendliness was found in mostly non-redacted and unclassified emails — it’s a matter of conjecture what may have been secreted by the government.

3. Mainstream media inarguably functions as the de facto propaganda arm of the State, but recent revelations divulged the Associated Press had capitulated to Hitler’s Nazi Party in the 1930s to maintain its ability to report from Germany.

According to findings by a German historian, the New York-based AP had agreed to report news from a pro-Nazi slant in return for permission to remain in the country while other outlets had been forced to vacate German operations. This comfortable arrangement, The Free Thought Project reported, “created a paradigm in which the AP became virtually the sole hub of information about Nazi Germany being disseminated to the rest of the world.”

Once those other news organizations fled, the AP’s exclusive lock on information held little value other than serving as Hitler’s mouthpiece. As the Guardian noted, the AP was required “to hire reporters who also worked for the Nazi Party’s propaganda division. One of the four photographers employed by the Associated Press in the 1930s, Franz Roth, was a member of the SS paramilitary unit’s propaganda division, whose photographs were personally chosen by Hitler.”

4. Building on voluminous anecdotal reports of cannabis’ success in treating epilepsy in children, three official studies in the last five months have declared cannabidiol oil (CBD) enormously beneficial for curtailing — and in some cases halting — seizures in afflicted youth.

Of countless victims of the State’s insidious and utterly failed war on drugs, perhaps the most inexcusable victims are children living in cannabis prohibition states who suffer dozens, if not hundreds, of seizures daily. CBD, the three studies (of many) found, often halt symptoms in their tracks — and can allow children to live comparatively healthy, typical lives similar to their peers.

Many parents have turned to CBD after myriad pharmaceuticals proved useless to treat their children’s epileptic seizures and — according to just one of these three studies — fully 45 percent experienced “a significant reduction” in frequency.

5. In another ostensible conspiracy theory now validated, Deutsche Bank settled a lawsuit for its part in rigging the gold and silver markets — and agreed to turn on co-conspirators as part of the settlement.

Since 2007, Deutsche Bank, HSBC, Société Générale, and Bank of Nova Scotia allegedly harbored no compunctions in taking opportunistic advantage of their position in the daily silver price fix, and, as Bloomberg described, reaped “illegitimate profit from trading, hurting other investors in the silver market who use the benchmark in billions of dollars of transactions.” UBS later found itself added to the list of culpable financial institutions for its role in the silver fix.

As The Free Thought Project pointed out, the “Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), the government agency that is supposed to regulate these banks, initiated its own investigation in 2008 and found no wrongdoing.”

6. January saw the revelation, previously touted only in fringe circles, that Western nations had wielded NATO as a tool to oust Libya’s Muammar al-Gaddafi — because he sought to abandon the petrodollar in favor of the gold-based Libyan dinar.

While likely a stunning disclosure to mainstream society, conspiracy theorists everywhere sighed a collective ‘I told you so,’ when Hillary Clinton’s notorious emails provided the information equivalent to a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow — bad pun intended. Falsely premised as a humanitarian mission, the Western nations-backed Libyan intervention, it turns out, had been fueled by French President Nicolas Sarkozy’s insecurity over losing influence in what some consider Francophone Africa.

As the West pulled the collective wool of saving lives over the woefully gullible eyes of the American public, a NATO-led military operation quashed Gaddafi’s attempt to bring monetary independence to African nations via his pan-African currency.

7. Perhaps no other subject in recent years has been as widely dubbed a ‘conspiracy theory’ as the massive effort to reveal the truth behind the attacks of September 11, 2001.

Now, vindication for those deemed tinfoil-hat wearing nutjobs has partly culminated in national media attention to Saudi Arabia’s virtually indisputable complicity in the attacks — albeit to an extent or capacity as yet unknown.

In the course of just two weeks, The New York Times revealed Saudi Arabia threatened to pull its nearly $775 trillion in U.S. investments should Pres. Obama decide to allow passage of a bill designed to aid 9/11 victims’ families in seeking justice. Obama then appeared to side with the Saudis in announcing his plan to veto the bill under the guise of protecting Americans abroad — though, in actuality, it appears his motives lie elsewhere.

Should Obama remove the Saudis’ immunity from prosecution for potential complicity that day, the move would also give breadth to those seeking justice for any U.S. role in both 9/11 as well as any involvement in any terrorist acts worldwide. Appearing to succumb to the pressure of economic and political blackmail, Obama’s veto promise might more accurately amount to a ‘cover your ass’ maneuver. Obama then found himself royally snubbed by the kingdom over the controversy, when King Salman refused to greet his plane upon arrival in Riyadh for an international summit. This story, of course, is still unfolding.

8. Perhaps the only positive outcome of the 2016 electoral chaos has been the sweeping realization the system is, in fact, rigged to install only establishment candidates.

Tumultuous most aptly, if mildly, describes the ongoing primary season, which thus far has found the New York City Board of Elections the subject of an audit.

In fact, in state after state, eligible voters encounter chaos and incompetence at polling sites, if not outright removal from voter rolls. Finally, the American public familiarized itself with the function of superdelegates, contested conventions, winner-take-all states, and closed primaries.

Relative absurdities have been exposed in platitudes such as ‘your vote counts,’ as well as in the futility of supporting an anti-establishment candidate. America, it optimistically appears, may finally have a collective epiphany over elections — it matters not one iota for whom you cast your vote.

The State always wins.

    “Give the best that you have to Mankind — your dreams, your purity and fragrance, your message of Resurrection and Immortality. Have patience, labouring unceaselessly until the Spring-time. Then you shall merge into the Great Light, knowing yourself to be one with It. Indeed, were not your eyes holden, you could at this moment perceive Its Radiance around and about you.”

    “Where love is the ruling spirit, there is no question of master and servant. We should have no servants. We can make the daily offices, called menial work, as noble as any other. We should share all the work with one another and with our children, who will learn to work alone or together; and all of them will gradually learn to do the work that they cause and make the things that they need. When we do that, we understand how much we each contribute towards the social difficulties of civilisation; we understand the relation of life to work, of the hand to the heart, and we realise the necessity for increasing simplification in every detail as well as the advantages of it. For it is only by simplification that we can gain freedom, freedom to really live as the wild flowers do, freedom to come and go as the woodfolk do, freedom from the fetters and worry of possessions, and freedom to help our fellows. The less we need for ourselves, the more time and love we can devote to others. No man can give us freedom, and if we take it (without simplifying our lives) by getting others to do the work we cause, even though we wish to help humanity, how will that do much good ? For it means that, though we help some few, we are being a hindrance to others. And therein is another reason for the necessity for simplification.”

    Correction….it is not trillions, it is billions.

  4. All great points – ty
    Governments around the world spew conspiracy – they wish to keep their evil deeds close to the vest. False flags from 911 to 711 to 311 and From Missouri to Boston to Sandy Hook.
    Government is the worst investment I have ever been robbed out of.
    TAXATION is theft.

  5. So what’s wrong with HRC and Lady Rothschild (born in New Jersey) being pals? Here is what I found: “Rothschild was introduced to Sir Evelyn de Rothschild by Henry Kissinger at the 1998 Bilderberg Group conference in Scotland.” This is her 3d husband, met in the cozy circle of the NWO.

    It is indeed nice to hear somebody else stating the facts as I have known them for over a decade or two. Especially concerning the vicious attack on Libya and their financial independence.

    Please check out the financial history of all of those “horrible Islamic” states in the middle east. You will find that before our intervention, they were all independent of the International bankers’ debt mechanisms.

    We have been spending our wealth and the lives of our youth to protect the power of the Rothschild (Bibi) controlled international banking cartel – you know, the one which has controlled our economy ever since the “Federal Reserve Act” of 1913. (Just look where that has taken us – two world wars, billions – no trillions of indebtedness, and an international dependency which has us jump whenever the current “Bibi” says “Boo.” Ain’t it time for us to become a sovereign nation again, I ask, humbly, hat in hand – please don’t hit me again).

    How far back does this manipulation of our intervention go, I wonder? My airline pilot career at Pan Am was cut short by a bankruptcy partially brought about by the downing of Pan Am 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, as the notoriety caused a large reduction in load factor. Libya was implicated, and a retaliatory strike came along not much later, which killed Gaddafi’s son, and began an assault upon them culminating in the overthrow and murder of the father. It has been rumored that our CIA/NSA black-ops budget paid for the whole thing, downed aircraft and all. If that should turn out to be true, I would have a hell-of-a good reason to demand compensation – or even to desire vengeance. I lost a couple of friends that day, and I’m still pissed. (I mean, what does one aircraft full of innocents matter, when the future of the (police) state is at stake? Or three tall buildings full of people, for that matter? Good God, folks, don’t you see what has happened to our government)?

    • Hi Bill,
      Lockerbie was nothing but propaganda. Mommar feared an invasion and let a couple dupes to be charged. Also ISIS (Israeli Secret Intelligence Service aka MOSSAD) was involved if I remember right.
      Are you famliar with Major General Smedley D. Butler USMC? He won a Medal of Honor at the Boxer Rebellion in China, and another in Nicaragua during the almost at the time seemed unending Banana Wars.
      The 1933 coup Smedley was picked to lead by a bunch bankers and industrialists. Including Prescott Bush, Herbert Walker, and Averell Harriman. His army was to be what was called the “Bonus Army” who Woodrow Wilson promised a money from scrap of ships. The catch was, they couldn’t get it till 1945. They already waited half the time and were 4 years into the depression. The wealthy oganized these vets to march on the DC mall. FDR ordered troops lead by MAC, Ike, and Patton to disperse them. Yes they fired on them. This was about when Butler told FDR about the coup. Inshort nothing happened to the conspirators, thanks to John J. McCloy, and Butler wrote a book “Was is a Racket”
      Easy read! Maybe 80 pages.
      So it’s been going on since before 1900. The Brits were doing it since the 1830’s (Opium War) in china. I heard on the Corbett Report a few days ago that “The Shot Heard Around the World was a false flag event, but I haven’t sudied that angle yet but from what I do know it’s plausible.

      • the cover story – or more fuel to the fire, if you wish – was Quaddafi’s continent-wide efforts to replace the dollar for oil sales. However, the genesis was his support for the IRA. The French intercepted his shipment of 20 SAM missile, hundreds of heavy machine guns, 3,000,000 rounds of heavy ammo, etc.. that would have given the republicans ability to take out Parliament and/or do horrific damage. And there’s even more than this to that story, stretching back at least to the summer of 1981. And that’s all you get for a dime, or sixpence.

    • If I remember right the terrorist attack aimed at ghadaffi by reagan killed his daughter Aisha’s son

    • bingo. you got it. and there’s more to the story. when’s the last time you threw up violently?

      You are right on! Gaddafi may have been a dictator, but one who was a benevolent one to his people. The only thing I believe that may be true but not stated was the taking back control of the oil and banking interests.

  9. If big banks have been caught in the silver price manipulation, when will silver prices actually start to rise in market value??

  10. AWESOME POST! Very informative, friend. Well done….

    Finally! The truth is exposed! I’ve said similar things in the last few years. Now it is out by others. Thank you! But will the American people accept this and act accordingly? Only time will tell. As for the elections, They’ve been rigged for many years now. But it took the Obama election to really bring it out! Rigged voting machines, Dead people voting, multiple registrations by the same person; no ID’s required, mail not delivered, Military votes not counted….you name it! What will it be like this year? Will more rise from the dead? Were they all mail-ins? Is it that they were never taken off the rolls? Hillary should be tried for treason and murder as far as I am concerned. But then, weren’t most presidents criminals to begin with? Obama sure is!
