The Watering Hole, Monday, June 22nd, 2015: That’s Crazy Talk!

Conspiracy theories fall into various categories: some are based on actual disastrous events that have in fact occurred, i.e., the attacks on September 11th, 2001, have spawned many conspiracy theories, some more fact-based than others; and some are based on projection of what the theorists imagine could happen. The website caters to the latter.

Now, I realize that none of us here are fundamentalist religious nuts, but I don’t remember our hatred of the Bush/Cheney administration making any liberals go into full-on end- times/survivalist mode. But that is what appears to have happened to an unguessable number of conservatives due to the fact that President Barack Obama, a half-black man, is living in the “White” House. The “Common Sense Show” and website seem to go for a couple of different conspiracy theories rolled up in an unwieldy package. As one of the commenters at the site says, under one article titled “The UN Is Preparing to Manage Mass Casualty Events Under Jade Helm” (written by the website’s founder, Dave Hodges) “Please consider the following…”

“My worst fears are being realized. The following information is strongly suggestive that the United Nations is poised to seize control of Jade Helm. Further, the nature of UN involvement with Jade Helm is strongly suggestive of the fact that massive numbers of people will be relocated to camps following a chemical/biological attack. Further, this administration has established the protocols for just such a forced relocation of massive amounts of people.

We have seen the Blue Bell Ice Cream trucks, featured later in this article, that are implicated in this scenario for the presumed transport of a massive amounts of dead bodies. However, what is most disturbing is that in the case of a pandemic, the United Nations will assume operational control over quarantines and the transporting of “sick people” to a receiving facility. Walk with me through this process and I am certain you will agree the dots are beginning to connect which points to a hellish scenario in America’s immediate future. Let’s connect some dots.”

Among the weird examples of conspiratorial comments are these gems:

“It is time that people realize that Obama is the long awaited antichrist. Please consider the following….
No photos of a pregnant Michelle Obama exist anywhere. Attorney Orly Taitz can find no US birth records for the the daughters. On occasions an appendage can be seen through her clothing that indicates she has male genitals.

It is common knowledge Obama is gay and that two of his gay friends were murdered just before his nomination in 2007. The Book of Daniel says the Antichrist will be the leader of a powerful and diverse nation, that he will change times and laws, and also that he will have no desire of women.

See the shocking photos of Michelle’s male anatomy and read numerous prophecies from Jesus identifying Obama as the antichrist at”


“In three more months nothing will matter anyway, I guess. Keep a BraveHeart and strengthen the perimeter. In Vietnam we had a procedure called “Final Protective Fire.” That was used when a firebase was about to be overrun and we threw everything great and small and all things in between down range at the enemy. We are rapidly approaching that point if your prediction of multiple attacks on multiple fronts proves true…and it will. Trouble is we don’t have a perimeter, we have isolated people willing to defend, but that doesn’t do squat to defeat the enemies that are approaching on all fronts. There is just too much heavily armed, heavily supported activity out there for this to be Training As Usual. All of us that are not willing to give up our Bibles, Faith, and Guns need to be making peace with the Man with a Crown of Thorns and Nail Scars in His Hands. We are going to be seeing him up up close and personal in the not too distant future when he stretches forth His right hand, calls us by name and raises us from the dead. Dead is what we are going to be very soon. Mentally/Spiritually toughen yourself folks and prepare for the Judgement Seat. Once He gives us a glorified body it will be ass kicking time and there will be no place to hide for the Globalists. Godspeed!”


“18 June, 2015, 21:47

Hey CNN just briefly switched their time stamp to military time… 01:00 This happened during Baltimore as well. Is that a signal to us about what is to come as a result of events happening during the switch?

Have you noticed that Obama is in a red hot rush to pass as many anti-American laws and other forms of legislation and regulation as he possibly can? No discussions-just what Obama wants rammed down our throats! No other president has ever done this-even those considered pure evil! Doesn’t Obama remind you of Damien in THE OMEN? Anyone who tried to stop him wound up dead!”


Now, here, to wash the nut-job taste out of your mouth:

Someone on a recent Raw Story thread commented that the Republicans needed a bigger clown car.  Someone else responded with, “They’re shopping for one,” and this photo:

Republicans shopping for a bigger clown car

Another commenter added this:

  1. I’m guessing that when Jade Helm is finished and it has proven to be nothing other than a training exercise, the ‘false flag’ nuts will shift immediately to their next conspiracy, whatever it might be. I do wonder why none of their ‘followers’ ever question them or even mention their flops, however. Remember how Ebola was an Obama plot to Africanize Amurkkka, to turn us into a third world Marxist-Muslim country? Remember how the Boston bombings were really an Obama false flag effort to provide a Muslim foothold in Amurkkka for their upcoming takeover (or something close to that)? I still remember something about public bicycles in Denver being linked to the UN takeover. The list of conspiratorial stupidity is endless, but no matter how bizarre is the latest one, the nuts believe it even as they immediately discard the last one that never came to pass.

    As for myself, I of course absolutely KNOW that Caitlyn Jenner is responsible for both abortion and ISIS. I read that somewhere. I think. Prolly Bruce Jenner is teaming with Obama to turn Amurkkka into a Marxist-Fascist-Nazi-Muslim country by causing people to not shop at Walmart — so the empty Walmart stores can be used as FEMA camps where wimmin can go and get abortions whenever they want, no questions asked, and paid for by our taxes that they steal from us all with all that nonsense about climate change and how people are causing it by burning coal that God gave us so’s we could have ‘lectricity and enough light to clean our guns before Obama comes and takes them to use for arming ISIS so they can take over Israel and bring Christ back for the end times . . .

    As Satchel Paige once said, “Don’t look back. Something might be gaining on you.”

      • Actually, I could use a little bit of something cold today. It’s already pushing 90, and Blue Bunny just might hit the spot. Problem is, I’ve never seen a Blue Bunny truck up this way, so guess I’ll have to suffer the heat unrequited. Oh well, I’ll not be alone in that. Blue Bunny is clearly scary scary to some, but a breath of cool air to others. 😉

      • Frank’s his uncle. But it’s ok, the kid was driven to have an affair by his wife who had one first. I think the bible says that only the first sin counts, the second one therefore is ok so at least Herr Tchividjian is still OK to sitteth on grandpa Billy’s right hand up thar in heaven, or however that works.

  2. Politifact is going out of their way to claim Obama was Mostly Wrong to claim mass shootings like Charleston don’t happen with the frequency they do here. Per capita deaths do not disprove frequency. The study they used had 133 attacks in the USA versus 24 everywhere else in the world, and they actually disputed that they happen with greater frequency here. The problem was that they were trying to take two sentences and treat them as two separate statements, when they were clearly meant to be taken as one statement. They use the same kind of deceptive wordplay conservatives use.

  3. I knew it all along. Finally, the PROOF.

    Larry Klayman: Blame Obama For Charleston Shooting

    “Obama, Holder and their enablers, like Al Sharpton, have become what they accused President George W. Bush of being: a recruiting tool for terrorists thanks to his invasion of Iraq,” Klayman wrote on Friday in WorldNetDaily. “Obama and company’s biased actions against whites, Christians and Jews have ironically served to draw neo-Nazis and sick Klansman out of their caves and have emboldened them to try to justify criminal acts – people like Dylann Roof. Indeed, Roof was quoted as saying that he struck because blacks had ‘taken over the country.’”

    Just as “Obama has fanned the flames” in order to “tear down traditional America,” Klayman warned, “Hillary Clinton is poised to ignite a war between the sexes as a way to win the White House.”

    It all makes such perfect sense.

    • One almost, in a sick and twisted way, has to admire their ability to claim, straight-faced, that a white racist gunning black people down in a black church is all part of a “attack on White Americans”. If President Obama walked on water they would condemn him for being unable to swim and being a witch. If he said, “there’s a nice, cool, rain gently falling” they would start screaming that “hot snow flies up!”. If some race driven psychopath managed to shoot him they would say that he orchestrated it in order to start a race war.

      Realize it’s no secret to anyone here but these freaks are fucking dangerous and getting more dangerous with each passing day. The fact that we elected a black Democrat has pushed them over the proverbial edge.

  4. QOTD:

    “Let me tell you something. The Democratic party today is not the Democratic party of John Kennedy. John Kennedy would be a Republican today,” – Rapahel Cruz, Ted’s father.

    • Oh, yeah, and it;s made national news. Even has Fux Nuts Channel upset because Obama actually SAID (not “used”) the n-word, unedited, if you know what I mean. He didn’t call anyone it, he simply said “Not using the word (insert n-word here) doesn’t mean you’re not racist.” Or something like that. They’re all like, “How come he can say the word and we can’t?” Awesome. And great publicity for Marc Maron.

      • I was listening to Nicole Sandler this morning, and I heard something mentioned about Marc Maron, but I was away from the computer, listening in the kitchen, so I didn’t hear it clearly. When Chris Hayes opened his show talking about it, I went back to the Nicole Sandler chat room, and they had discussed it, about forty minutes into her show.

        Maron’s Morning Sedition show on Air America was ended about the time I got the internet. I read that Rachel Maddow started her time at AA as a ‘news’ reporter on his show, before they gave her part of that time slot for her own show, which got her chosen by Olbermann for his show.

        • I listened to AA from minute one, when Al Franken opened with something like, “Broadcasting from as bunker 300 feet below Dick Cheney’s secret bunker…”

          I thought Rachel was part of a show with Lizz Winstead, but my memory’s faded on that one.

          • I got my first exposure to Air America when Sundance Channel was simulcasting Al Franken and Katherine Lanpher during the day. It was one of the reasons I finally got the internet. The only other place on the internet I even knew about was Huffington Post, from Arianna’s appearances on CNN. That’s why I started there, before I moved on to Think Progress.

    • I think they ought to try Brian Williams in place of Tuck Choad on Meet the Press. BTW, I heard someone call it ‘Me Depressed’ today, which I’d never heard before.

    • I would like to start a campaign claiming that the reason he only featured black murderers in his infamous piece is because white guys who shoot people never regret it.

  5. James Horner, the consummate film composer known for his heart-tugging scores for Field of Dreams, Braveheart and Titanic, for which he won two Academy Awards, died Monday in a plane crash near Santa Barbara. He was 61.

    His death was confirmed by Sylvia Patrycja, who is identified on Horner’s film music page as his assistant.
