A Conspiracy Of Assassins

 

@Jasonrudert posits in @ctlaw‘s post that what we’ll really find in the Kennedy Assassination files is the secret to why Lincoln was shot: Lincoln’s mythical and famous 200 mpg carburetor, something GM, Ford, and Chrysler have been rumored to have buried decades before. Look, I unearthed those plans years ago (they were buried under a […]

Ancient Tricks: PizzaGate and Spirit Cooking

 

The two most controversial conspiracies to grow out of the emails obtained by Wikileaks are eerily similar to the conspiracies about early Christianity.

The Adventures of Satan n’Friends, or Switzerland Loses its Daggone Mind

Beyoncé is Correct: “Y’all Haters Corny with that Illuminati Mess”

 

shutterstock_319181906As everyone knows, one of the things that is expressly forbidden here at Ricochet is trafficking in conspiracy theories. Beyoncé herself takes the “haters” and conspiracy theorists to task in her most recent video. Case closed, obviously.

But what makes people believe in these kinds of things? Why do people insist on vast conspiracies, whether they’re “right wing” ones (thanks, Hillary!) or the “new world order” direct from the Trilateral Commission? (Don’t click on the second link, by the way … Life is too short.)

Is Harry Reid All There?

 

At what point do Democrats admit that Harry Reid, well, isn’t all there?

The 74-year-old former boxer has often tossed around unsourced smears to gain a brief political advantage, but now one wonders if he took too many blows to the head. Reid’s current obsession with long-time libertarian donors Charles and David Koch is downright nonsensical. He’s making increasingly bizarre allegations with little apparent benefit.
