What is a Conspiracy Theory? What is the Truth?

Support SouthFront

Written by Prof Michel Chossudovsky; Originally appeared at GlobalResearch

Obama [and now Trump] are on a hot war footing. Western civilization is allegedly “threatened by the Islamic State”.

The “Global War on Terrorism” is  heralded as a humanitarian endeavor.

We have a “Responsibility to Protect”. Humanitarian warfare is the solution.

Evil folks are lurking. ‘Take ’em out”, said George W. Bush.

The Western media is beating the drums of war. America’s military agenda is supported by a vast propaganda apparatus.

What is a Conspiracy Theory? What is the Truth?

One of the main objectives of war propaganda is to “fabricate an enemy”. As the political legitimacy of the Obama Administration falters, doubts regarding the existence of this “outside enemy”, namely Al Qaeda and its network of (CIA sponsored) affiliates  must be dispelled.

The purpose is to tacitly instil, through repeated media reports, ad nauseam, within people’s inner consciousness, the notion that Muslims constitute a threat to the security of the Western World.

Humanitarian warfare is waged on several fronts: Russia,  China and the Middle East are currently the main targets.

Xenophobia and the Military Agenda

The wave of xenophobia directed against Muslims which has swept across Western Europe is tied into geopolitics. It is part of a military agenda. It consists in demonizing the enemy.

Muslim countries possess more than 60 percent of total oil reserves.  In contrast, the United States of America has barely 2 percent of total oil reserves. Iraq has five times more oil than the United States. (See Michel Chossudovsky, The “Demonization” of Muslims and the Battle for Oil, Global Research, Jannuary 4, 2007).

A large share of the World’s oil lies in Muslim lands. The objective of the US led war is to steal and appropriate those oil reserves. And to achieve this objective, these countries  are targeted: war, covert ops, economic destabilization, regime change.

The American Inquisition

A consensus building process to wage war is similar to the Spanish inquisition. It requires social subordination, the political consensus cannot be questioned. In its contemporary version, the inquisition requires and demands submission to the notion that war is a means to spreading Western values and democracy.

A good versus evil dichotomy prevails. We must go after the bad guys.

War is peace.

The ‘big lie’ has now becomes the truth … and the truth has become a ‘conspiracy theory’.

Those who are committed to the Truth are categorized as “Terrorists”.

According to Paul Craig Roberts (2011), the conspiracy theory concept “has undergone Orwellian redefinition”…

A “conspiracy theory” no longer means an event explained by a conspiracy.  Instead, it now means any explanation, or even a fact, that is out of step with the government’s explanation and that of its media pimps….

In other words, as truth becomes uncomfortable for government and its Ministry of Propaganda, truth is redefined as conspiracy theory, by which is meant an absurd and laughable explanation that we should ignore.

Fiction becomes fact.

Investigative journalism has been scrapped.

Factual analysis of social, political and economic issues is a conspiracy theory because it challenges a consensus which is based on a lie.

What is the Truth

The real threat to global security emanates from the US-NATO-Israel alliance, yet realities in an inquisitorial environment are turned upside down: the warmongers are committed to peace, the victims of war are presented as the protagonists of war.

The homeland is threatened.

The media, intellectuals, scientists and the politicians, in chorus, obfuscate the unspoken truth, namely that the US-NATO led war destroys humanity.

When the lie becomes the truth there is no turning backwards.

When war is upheld as a humanitarian endeavor, Justice and the entire international legal system are turned upside down: pacifism and the antiwar movement are criminalized. Opposing the war becomes a criminal act. Meanwhile, the war criminals in high office have ordered a witch hunt against those who challenge their authority.

The Big Lie must be exposed for what it is and what it does.

It sanctions the indiscriminate killing of men, women and children.

It destroys families and people. It destroys the commitment of people towards their fellow human beings.

It prevents people from expressing their solidarity for those who suffer. It upholds war and the police state as the sole avenue.

It destroys both nationalism and internationalism.

Breaking the lie means breaking a criminal project of global destruction, in which the quest for profit is the overriding force.

This profit driven military agenda destroys human values and transforms people into unconscious zombies.

Let us reverse the tide.

Challenge the war criminals in high office and the powerful corporate lobby groups which support them.

Break the American inquisition.

Undermine the US-NATO-Israel military crusade.

Close down the weapons factories and the military bases.

Bring home the troops.

Members of the armed forces should disobey orders and refuse to participate in a criminal war.

One of the key distinction for a troll is their love to claim their targets as conspiracy theorists. It occurs as a last resort, once they have nothing else left to appeal.

Remember, the term conspiracy theory was invented by the CIA in the 1960s to debunk serious Kennedy assassination accounts. It’s purpose is to guarantee the created information monopoly of government-only sources.



Yes why do you comment on every artical I wonder??

I rather like the term “Conspiracy fact” by now. Bilderberg, for example, is a conspiracy fact. Russia rigging the US election is a conspiracy theory. The distinction should be clear.

Harold Smith

Here is a conspiracy fact: The dishonest manipulation of the 2016 presidential election was one of the most ambitious, most brazen, most treasonous psyops ever conducted against the people of the U.S. and the world.

Donald John Trump was the “deep state” (i.e., the Jews’) candidate. Donald John Trump was chosen to replace Obama and to continue the pursuit of the Jewish-supremacist agenda for world domination and control.

This is why they ran the unelectable Hillary Clinton against Trump, rather than Bernie Sanders, who had a better chance to win. Although more than sufficiently evil and obedient, Clinton is “all used up” politically and can’t be reinvented. With all of her “baggage”, she wasn’t the person they needed to continue the pursuit of the agenda. They needed a plausible “outsider” like Donald John Trump.

Trump’s whole campaign was a calculated fraud from the beginning. Of particular importance was Trump’s disingenuous rhetoric about not engaging in regime change in places like Syria, and cooperating with Russia in Syria and fighting ISIS together, etc.

All of this was a calculated lie. In contrast to Trump’s “peace” rhetoric, Hillary Clinton was talking about “confronting” Russia. Meanwhile, what was Obama doing in the fall of 2016? He was escalating in Syria. He was deliberately provoking Russia. He was seriously ramping things up.

With only a few months left in his term, why was lame duck Obama creating such a dangerous confrontation with Russia? We were told by the talking heads that Obama’s provocations were intended to “sabotage” Trump’s prospective foreign policy of peace and cooperation with Russia. But this explanation was also a lie.

The whole point of Obama’s escalation was to give the people a scary taste of what life would be like with Clinton as president: almost certain war with Russia, most likely escalating to nuclear war at some point.

Thus the election was manipulated so as to give voters a choice: either you vote for Trump, or you vote for nuclear war.

Trump wasn’t elected because of Russian interference, Trump was elected because of “deep state” interference.


Trump was elected because of America First and the lying Jew media and evil Jew cabal have been running a full court press against Trump and America First from day one. Don’t you pay attention to the news? They hate Trump and what he’s trying to do.

Harold Smith

No, your comment is nonsense.

First, what is it about Art. 2 Sec 2 of the U.S. constitution that you don’t understand? Congress cannot dictate foreign policy. That responsibility is the constitutional prerogative of the executive branch. It doesn’t matter what the Senate does Trump decides foreign policy. Congress is limited to an advisory role.

Second, Trump’s Jewish handlers are experts at “victimology”. The “Russian collusion” scam and the “out to get Trump” scam are just that, scams. They’re designed to provide cover for Trump while he reneges and reverses himself on his campaign promises and scrambles to advance the Jewish-supremacist agenda in the Mideast.
Trump was a Jewish trojan horse and we let the scumbag in.

Third, under the constitution, Trump is the commander in chief of the U.S. military; as such he could order U.S. forces out of Syria and Iraq tomorrow, but he won’t do it because he’s continuing Obama’s agenda, which is the Jewish agenda, because they are both demon-possessed Jew puppets.

Lastly, if Trump wanted to actually fight the deep state and do something for the people who elected him, he would order NIST to cooperate with AE911 Truth. He would order NIST to answer their questions and provide the documents that they’re withholding. But Trump won’t do it because he works for the “deep state”, i.e., the Jewish collective. Trump’s job is to protect the “deep state” and pursue their Satanic agenda.
Anyone who disagrees at this sorry point in time is either a fool or an enemy of humanity.


Like I said, you ought to do a reality check and live in the world of real politic rather than theory of how you’d like things to be. Trump can’t do anything if he gets impeached and if you’re paying attention you know that that’s what the people against Trump and America First are trying to do to block America First from being implemented and the cabal losing it’s control over policy determination and implementation.

Trump can veto sanctions legislation and have that overridden with a 2/3rds majority vote by the legislature and then appeal in court using your argument where nothing will happen and the legislation won’t be over turned. That’s how government really works.

Harold Smith

Your ignorance of how the U.S. government works reflects poorly on you RichardD, not on me.

Once again, Congress has no power to dictate foreign policy. It doesn’t matter what Congress does, they cannot compel the president to do anything in the realm of foreign relations any more than the president can dictate the budget to Congress.

It’s not a matter of how many votes and veto power, it’s a matter of the concept of “separation of powers” and “checks and balances” built into the constitution by the Founders and Framers. This is 10th grade level civics. This is why the U.S. embassy in Israel was never moved to Jerusalem, for example, despite the fact that Congress passed the Jerusalem Embassy Act in 1995.

The president’s exclusive authority to conduct foreign affairs has been affirmed by the U.S. Supreme court:

“…It is important to bear in mind that we are here dealing not alone with an authority vested in the President by an exertion of legislative power, but with such an authority plus the very delicate, plenary and exclusive power of the President as the sole organ of the federal government in the field of international relations …” United States v. Curtiss-Wright Export Corp., 299 U.S. 304 (1936)

When Presidents want to, they routinely defy unconstitutional congressional interference into foreign policy. Here’s an example of a statement by George Bush regarding the “Foreign Relations Authorization Act, FY 2003”:

“The executive branch shall construe as advisory the provisions of the Act, including sections 408, 616, 621, 633, and 1343(b), that purport to direct or burden the conduct of negotiations by the executive branch with foreign governments, international organizations, or other entities abroad or which purport to direct executive branch officials to use the U.S. voice and vote in international organizations to achieve specified foreign policy objectives. Such provisions, if construed as mandatory rather than advisory, would impermissibly interfere with the President’s constitutional authorities to conduct the Nation’s foreign affairs, participate in international negotiations, and supervise the unitary executive branch.”



Un huh, suuuure, he can’t even get a simple short term travel ban through the courts let alone abrogating sanctions that are already on the books with more in the pipeline. He can quote your legal theory to the courts all that he wants, and anyone violating the sanctions passed with a 2/3rds override is going to get prosecuted for it. But you’re welcome to violate them if you want and try to explain it to the judge in federal court yourself if you like.

I wouldn’t want to be a student in any civics class that you might teach for fear that taking your advice would end up being on the receiving end of federal felony charges.

Harold Smith

Well of course you’re ignorant; you don’t have the slightest clue what you’re talking about. You’re just being contrary, so I’m probably not going to waste any more time arguing absurdities with you.


The sanctions are on the books, try violating them and see what happens. You’ll get prosecuted if caught and your sham defense will be rejected by the courts. It’s a no brainer. Only a fool would believe your nonsense.

Harold Smith

It’s a pointless waste of time trying to “debate” “issues” with Jews such as yourself, because you Jews are inherently dishonest, and all you can do is stick to your absurd talking points, accordingly. Facts and common sense reasoning will bounce off of your thick skulls like bullets bounce off Superman.


I’m not a Jew, but you are an immature idiot who doesn’t want to debate the issues because your lies and stupidity are exposed for what they are.

Harold Smith

Your idea of “debating issues” is intellectual dishonesty, dismissive rhetoric and hand waving. Of course you’re a Jew, knucklehead.


You’re a liar and an immature moron.

Harold Smith

“You’re a liar and an immature moron…”

Coming from you Judenfilth, that’s a nice compliment, thanks.

“…whose conspiracy theories were disproven by facts and evidence.”

You wouldn’t know “facts and evidence” if your boyfriend shoved it up your ample Jewish ass, Shlomo.

“So you’ve resorted to lies, insults and name calling to divert attention from your failures.”

You’re supposed to be looking at your monitor, not your mirror as you type your infantile Jew drivel, goofball.

“If you find yourself that much of an embarrassment, why don’t you just erase your comments?”

ROTFL! Look who’s talkin’, the Satanic, messianic, Judeo-communist liar, misfit and general piece of subhuman filth.
I’ve got a better idea: Why don’t you run along now, Shitstein, and get back to painting swastikas on your front door, or trying to sate your many sexual perversions, or making up holocaust stories, or defrauding your insurance company, or whatever it is you Judenfilth do when you’re not online making asses out of yourselves.


I’m not a Jew, but you’re clearly a head case whose gone off the deep end.

Harold Smith

BTW, Trump can defeat the Jews any time he wants to; all he has to do is order the Justice dept to start looking into the 9/11 cover up. But he refuses.

Why doesn’t Trump ask how Hyman Brown was able to get himself on NBC (national TV), on 9/11 and be introduced as the “architect” and “chief engineer” of the WTC towers, when in reality he had nothing to do with it?

Why doesn’t Trump ask why building codes were never changed after WTC7 collapsed, supposedly due to “fire”?

Why doesn’t Trump ask why Bruce Ivins’ supervisor at Ft. Detrick wasn’t even reprimanded, let alone fired or criminally charged in the aftermath of the “anthrax attacks”?

Trump is in a position to smash the Jewish “deep state” if he wanted to, but he refuses, because he works for the Jews. Accept it.


The same Justice Department that just appointed Robert Mueller to conduct a witch hunt? Good luck with that. Trump is one step away from impeachment as it is. 911 is small potatoes compared to the secret space program and all of the crime and theft involved.

Harold Smith

Ok, so you’re Jewish. That’s what I thought, as only a Jew would say the absurd things you’re saying.


Only a disinfo peddler like you would make false accusations and call the truth and obvious facts absurd.

Harold Smith

A Jew such as yourself calling someone else a “disinfo peddler”? LOL!


My present to the pack of grumpy wankees and their hang-around.
because I know they hate this one..


Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
