Jerry Fletcher (a bona fide schitzophrenic) is a man who sees conspiracies everywhere. But if you keep doing that long enough, sooner or later you're going to get one right... (Trailer for the movie Conspiracy Theory with Mel Gibson and Julia Roberts). Life immitates art? Sooner or later...these are some conspiracy theories that were vehemently denied as they happened and some were denied for years. Now they're accepted as being fact. The Dreyfus Affair: In the late 1800s in France, Jewish artillery officer Alfred Dreyfus was wrongfully convicted of treason based on false government documents, and sentenced to life in prison. The French government did attempt to cover this up, but Dreyfus was eventually pardoned after the affair becaue of the efforts of ONE person. The Mafia: This secret crime society was virtually unknown and its existence denied until the 1960s, when member Joe Valachi first revealed the society's secrets to law enforcement officials. LOL my family knew it LONG before then!But we didn't discuss it naturally-my grandpa Joe Finnelli was from Sicily...ssshh! MK-ULTRA: In the 1950s to the 1970s, the CIA ran a mind-control project aimed at finding a "truth serum" to use on communist spies. Test subjects were given LSD and other drugs, often without consent, and some were tortured. At least one man, civilian biochemist Frank Olson, who was working for the government, died as a result of the experiments. The project was finally exposed after investigations by the Rockefeller Commission. I knew some folks in High School who joked about being a lab rat in this whole affair. Operation Mockingbird: Also in the 1950s to '70s, the CIA paid a number of well-known domestic and foreign journalists from big-name media outlets like Time,The Washington Post,The New York Times,CBS and others to publish CIA propaganda. (NO, really? -propaganda?) The CIA also reportedly funded at least one movie, the animated "Animal Farm," by George Orwell. The Church Committee finally exposed the activities in 1975. Watergate: Republican officials spied on the Democratic National Headquarters from the Watergate Hotel in 1972. While conspiracy theories suggested underhanded dealings were taking place, it wasn't until 1974 that White House tape recordings linked President Nixon to the break-in and forced him to resign. And I might add the efforts of one single anonymous leak contributed to the downfall of a US President. The Tuskegee Syphilis Study: The United States Public Health Service carried out this clinical study on 400 poor, African-American men with syphilis from 1932 to 1972. During the study the men were given false and sometimes dangerous treatments, and adequate treatment was intentionally withheld so the agency could learn more about the disease. While the study was initially supposed to last just six months, it continued for 40 years. Close to 200 of the men died from syphilis or related complications by the end of the study. This continues to haunt the minds of many of the older black community. Operation Northwoods: In the early 1960s, American military leaders drafted plans to create public support for a war against Cuba, to oust Fidel Castro from power. The plans included committing acts of terrorism in U.S. cities, killing innocent people and U.S. soldiers, blowing up a U.S. ship, assassinating Cuban émigrés, sinking boats of Cuban refugees, and hijacking planes. The plans were all approved by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, but were reportedly rejected by the civilian leadership, then kept secret for nearly 40 years. The Iran-Contra Affair: In 1985 and '86, the White House authorized government officials to secretly trade weapons with the Israeli government in exchange for the release of U.S. hostages in Iran. The plot was uncovered by Congress in 1987. http://www.conservapedia.com/List_of_Americans_in_the_Venona_papers And then there is the Venona Papers; released under the FOIA, which proved that there was some truth to Joe McCarthey's charges that Soviet Spies had infiltrated the government and key industries in America, names were named and industries that were target were named. How long, and even still-after proof otherwise, has America been told McCarthey was a crackpot? Plots by Presidents, secret plans, disregard for human life, law breaking, and spying seem to be the norm in these conspiracy theories, and by the perseverance of a few, are now well know events in our recent history. And as the movie starring Mel Gibson & Julie Roberts portrays, sometimes our worst nightmares are real. And now for our feature presentation: http://www.infowars.com/bilderberg-security-assaults-eu-member/ Italian politician, member of the Northern League, and member of the European Parliament’s Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs, Mario Borghezio, was beaten and arrested by Bilderberg Security yesterday as he attempted to enter the meeting and protest its secretive globalist agenda. He was reportedly accompanied by other EU members. Wonder why this man was beaten and bloodied since it's only suppose to be a 'supper club' for the rich and powerful? Remarkably, Borghezio’s maltreatment went unreported in the United States. This would be analogous to the beating of a member of Congress going unreported by the media. Could George Soros have anything to do with keeping us sheep in the dark? http://www.infowars.com/10-really-stupid-things-the-mainstream-media-has-said-about-the-bilderberg-group-in-2011/ So why doesn’t the mainstream media want to talk about the Bilderberg Group? From June 9th to June 12th, over a hundred of the most powerful & rich people on the planet will meet in utter secrecy and will discuss the future of the world. Gosh, don't you wonder what they're discussing? TO BAD; All of the participants have been sworn not to reveal what is discussed. Yet this doesn’t interest the mainstream media at all? Every year since 1954, the Bilderberg Group has been holding these meetings. For years, even the existence of this group was denied. On U.S. talk shows anyone that dared to suggest that the Bilderberg Group existed was mocked as a “conspiracy theorist”. Well, in recent years the alternative news has brought so much attention to the Bilderberg Group that everyone finally admits that, yes, the Bilderberg Group really does exist. But now the mainstream media does everything they can to downplay the importance of the organization. EVEN USING RIDICULE? They suggest that anyone that believes that there is anything wrong with dozens of the most powerful people on the planet meeting in utter secrecy to discuss the future course of world events is “crazy”. Look, the truth is that dozens of the most powerful people on the planet are not meeting in utter secrecy just to play poker and smoke cigars. They are having very real discussions that will have a very real influence on the direction of world events. If that doesn’t fit in with how you prefer to view the world, that is too bad. The ultra-elite are going to keep on doing what they are doing whether you acknowledge them or not. In fact, they would very much prefer for most people to keep on ignoring them because that makes it so much easier for them to achieve their goals. DOCILE, COMPLIENT, DEAF AND DUMB SHEEP MAKE TAKING OVER THE WORLD SO MUCH EASIER. Sadly, most Americans will completely ignore the Bilderberg Group in 2011 because the mainstream media is telling them that it is not an important event. So what do all of you think about the Bilderberg Group? Yea, just what DO YOU THINK? And remember, history may some day show this was the MOTHER of all CONSPIRACY THEORIES that were TRUE. BUT THEN IT IS TO LATE.

I am a firm believer that the few control the many and that is about it really

I have been a follower of infowars and a few other sites for a number of years, so I guess i am prepared for what may or not happen. I think it is the best we can do is to educate ourselves and have other sources to get both sides of the story and not just rely on what is spoon feed to us. There are many conspiracy theories that are laughable but the Bilderberg group does exist and we may never know what they actually get up to but but I am sure it will have an impact on our daily lives whether we realise it or not.

I agree, so many are laughable. That is why I did this discussion. To separate the fact from the...laughable. I do know that this is a spiritual battle in the sense that our very thoughts and the actions that rise from them are not always our own. Allen Watt discusses this, as you read infowars I am sure you know of him. Smart man. History is NOT as it is written, often times.

I was discussing this with my SIL yesterday and she said it doesn't do any good to vote anymore since all the elections are rigged and Obama will win in 2012 because that's key to bringing down the U.S. My sister has talked about the Bilderberg/Trilateral society for years and been mocked and put down so that she only talks about it with family. I'll continue to vote to honor those that made it possible for me to have the privilege but I believe it's an empty gesture. This nation has become too stupid, too lazy and too dependent to elect anyone who would truly lead and return us to the greatness we once knew. And that's been the plan. It's succeeded. Ever listen to Pink Floyd's "Animals"? If not, look up the lyrics to "Sheep". That's how it is today. Every song on that album describes our society as it was and is. Eerie how that music is so timeless.

I sat transfixed for the full ten minutes it took to listen. I remembered when I was a teenager, and so idealistic, thinking that if you did right and obeyed the rules you would succeed. I remembered my rising indignation at the government for telling a soldier to kill and then putting him in prison for doing so. (Lt. Cally) I remember as I matured, becoming more and more cynical as I watched men I had voted for and trusted selling us down the river. I sensed the net closing along time ago, but domestic responsibilities were all I could handle then. Now as I contemplate my grandchildren's paths, as I pray for their success, I am so overwhelmed by dismay and discouragement I can hardly say to them...do what's right and you will succeed. It isn't that I don't believe that doing right will bring success, I just know now that it will only bring you success in the NEXT world, not this one. This world is backwards, where men call evil good and good evil. How do you explain that to a 12 year old? Found this on the same page as the Pink Floyd song, it gave me the chills to listen to it. Its very '80's and the MTV video does not do it justice; but I think you will find its lyrics very appropriate to our day and age. Mike & the Mechanics, Silent Running. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ep7W89I_V_g&feature=related

I had forgotten that song but I remember it made a huge impression on me when it came out. Already things were getting bad and I was starting to become a "prepper" as they call people who want to be prepared for anything. That song is even more chilling now when the end of the nation is so close at hand.

Like you, I am beginning to be prepared for anything. I know one thing for sure, God is not a liar. I think of Daniel's prophetic dream of the gold headed statue...nations that fight against God and God's people always fall. Matthew 12:30 says "If you are not for me, you are against me." America as a nation has made its choice. This is so depressing. So heartwrenching.
