The Best Conspiracy Theory
Before we get to the BCT...what is a Conspiracy Theorist”?
A definition I came across had this:
The term used to discredit someone who speaks about things you can’t bare to look at. Because if they were true, they would reveal a darkness in the world that you’re simply not ready to accept.
As a Talk Show Host, you get to hear a lot of ‘theories”; it’s part of the job. What’s more compelling is when ‘theories’ about UFO’s, the JFK assassination, the Vince Foster murder, 9/11 attack, the fires in Maui, all labeled ‘conspiracy theories’, are revealed as fact.
With every Joe Biden mumble, stumble, gaff, faux pas, handshakes with invisible dignitaries and outright lies, people are questioning how someone with obviously failing faculties can run America? Can someone who calls the Declaration of Independence “you know…the…the thing!” actually be effectively overseeing complex issues effecting every aspect of the country? At a press conference, when Biden blurts out, “I’ll get in trouble if I don’t stop…” or “I have orders to do this…” – to whom is he referencing? To whom is he accountable? Who gives the President of the United States “orders” to do anything, even which reporter to call on? Who is running the country? Seriously. Who is concocting counter-productive policies destroying the economy, hurting families and constricting freedom found in the American Dream? Who is pumping billions of taxpayer dollars into the failing proxy war in “Ukraine”? Certainly not a senile, embarrassing character who compromises himself with every appearance.
What if the answer is the manifestation of the whisper: Barack Obama, his “Third term”?
Given serious thought and logical analysis, how difficult could it be for the former president to be masterminding every aspect of the Biden administration?
Questions like these invariably get the Bullshit Flat; the Conspiracy Theory put-down. But how could you know either way without answers to questions and a fair examination?
Why wouldn’t it work?
Obama certainly has the time, resources, sympathetic contacts, and fawning myrmidons in and adjacent to the White House and Congress. Some have wondered if the gymnastics required to successfully steal the last election were precisely planned years in advance anticipating a Trump re-election against an aging, incompetent political fixture running a decades old back-channel money laundering and influence pedaling operation that involved his entire family?
Certainly none of the characters who make up Biden’s ‘Cabinet’ have the experience, intelligence or political clout necessary to pull all the strings required of a President without a support team easily detectable to seasoned Washington observers.
It was whispered for most of Biden’s term, Susan Rice, domestic policy advisor and a key figure in the Obama administration, was the connection between Obama to Biden. A former UN Ambassador, she was the only person to serve as both National Security Advisor and Domestic Policy Advisor. With Obama allies as legislative leaders and committee chairmen, legislative issues would be easily handled. Once policies and strategies were designed, foreign affairs would also be carried out with ease.
Recall Obama’s astounding and prophetic proclamation “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”? (Oct. 30, 2008) “It was a bold statement, revolutionary even, surpassed only by the response of those in attendance, who, rather than pausing to reflect upon such an audacious assertion, wildly applauded. To be sure, these Obama enthusiasts would have ecstatically cheered anything he said at that moment…
“But even then, the words “fundamentally transform” should have alarmed everyone. We Americans generally don’t do fundamental transformation. We make changes, yes, small and large, but who among us — other than the most radical revolutionaries — actually want to fundamentally transform the nation?” (National Catholic Register)
With all the post-Obama revelations since he left office, it should not be difficult for the informed reader to envision the distinct possibility that, given Biden’s visible failings, observing the radical actions, legislation, regulation, unconstitutional commitments, blatant lies, the high profile snubbing of the rule of law, even ignoring judicial decisions should raise serious questions about his abuse of Presidential privilege, disregard for the protections afforded citizens by the Bill of Rights and the Constitutional legitimacy of his administration of the Executive branch.
Yet none of these aberrations would appear as such if you consider the idea it’s actually Barack Obama in the shadows of the Oval Office. The ‘fundamental’ disregard for American institutions, customs and practices began dissembling during his administration. From the scandals (Fast and Furious) to the tragedies (Benghazi) to the ‘lower case’ headlines of opprobrium of Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, Rahm Emanuel – all treated with studious disinterest by the liberally slanted media. With Donald Trump’s 2016 surprise defeat of Hillary Clinton, the ‘fundamental transformation of America’ was put on Hold until the 2020 election that would be manipulated to insure his defeat. The election of an empty suit with name recognition was a shock to all but the most disconnected voter. It was a glaring demonstration of the desperation liberals and Democrats would go to regain power and resume the work still needed to effect the ‘change’ Obama promised.
Biden’s incompetence has actually been a benefit, allowing the bold contrivance conceived by Obama & Company to be administered through a puppet. With his family’s financial future secured, only Biden’s vanity needed to be satiated, going through the motions of a pantomime President while the Obama machine controlled the policy, timing and direction out of sight of the public, press and Republicans. It also explains the hubris, dissimulation, and condescension in the face of lies, distortions and gaffs plainly seen – but not challenged - on the Evening News; the MSM continues to provide the smokescreen necessary to keep the public ignorant and apathetic. Without the voters demand for accountability, the fraud that is the “Biden Administration” continues without pause. It is no “conspiracy theory’ to state unequivocally: no previous administration could have had the record of impropriety, scandal and proof of outright criminal activity without facing citizen outrage.
The two problems with the Public accepting this charade are understandable. The first, aggressive ignorance, is a common malady shared throughout the electorate; its causes are well known. Second, Cognizant Dissonance plays a bigger role. Even the best informed suffer in its quagmire attempting to process Fact from Fiction despite overwhelming proof. Unfortunately, the majority of voting age adults are not adept in the exercise of critical thinking; bias, prejudice and overall zeitgeist obviates most efforts when attempts are actually made.
As with all ‘conspiracy theories’, ridicule, denial, personal attacks are SOP. Ironically, acceptance and apologies rarely follow in the wake of subsequent confirming revelations! Most people today still believe masks and vaccines will protect them from Covid and that Epstein committed suicide! The nice thing about ‘conspiracy theories’ is they rarely cost anything more than social rejection.
As a wise man once wrote: “Time is the sole arbiter between Prescience and Paranoia.”
What time is it now?
