I am what is called a "conspiracy theorist". I believe men and women of wealth and power conspire. If you don't think so then you are what is called "an idiot". If you do believe that men and women of power conspire but fear the label then you are what is called "a coward".

If you think small time criminals would murder a person for a few bucks but can not rationalize that big time criminals would murder entire populations, or reporters, then you need to rethink your thinking.

People will sit and watch a Netflix documentary about how some guy kidnapped 40 people, cut them up and had sex with the body parts that he kept in the freezer, but large scale financial fraud, "nah man, people don't do that".

Declassified C1A memo# 1035-960 ("Countering Criticism of the Warren Report") reveals that this phrase was deliberately given associations of craziness, as though conspiracies do not happen. It is routinely used by the corporate media in their efforts to discredit suggestions that contradict official narratives. As with other enemy images such as "terrorism", it is only used on this site inside quotation marks.|

"Conspiracy theory" is a pejorative label given to ideas which challenge an official narrative. Proponents are termed "conspiracy theorists". This stems from the US deep state's efforts to promote the "lone nut" theory of the JFK assassination. The concept was later developed into a general purpose enemy image used to try to prevent the connection of deep events that the commercially-controlled media presented as isolated incidents. Post 9/11, it is the subject of pseudo-scientific study to limit freedom of speech by promoting the idea that the holders of such opinions are inclined to violence and deserve to have their civil liberties removed, in particular by subjecting them to internet censorship.

Pejorative connotations NYU Media Professor Mark Crispin Miller records that the result of this C1A orchestrated effort was that it increasingly was loaded with connotations of craziness, to the point that by about 1980 it was an almost purely pejorative connotation, as if the official narrative is never mistaken or mendacious. As Miller notes in the public discourse only a century or so back the reverse was assumed to be true; distrust of authority used to be very common place, and formed the backdrop of a lot of political negotiations and some of the laws passed in USA. Conspiracy was formerly understood to be a potent force.[3]

Modern usage As the internet allowed widespread access to diverse opinions, the label "conspiracy theory" has been working overtime as authorities try to sideline any competition to their favoured official narratives. It is associated with the word "extremist", which is used as a more general enemy image, to describe anyone with significant disagreements with official points of view. A dramatic awakening since around 2005 has lead to increasingly aggressive (and unsuccessful) efforts to censor such alternative ideas.

Within hours of the JFK assassination, the FB1 were promoting an official narrative that it was carried out by a "lone nut" who had no deep political motivation. Many people were unconvinced by this, particularly after Oswald was assassinated in police custody, supposedly by another "lone nut". Nicholas Katzenbach sent a memo to Bill Moyers arguing that it was important then to persuade the public that "Oswald was the assassin," and that "he did not have confederates." This memo remarked that "the Dallas police have put out statements on the Communist conspiracy theory."[2]

People who use "conspiracy theory" as an insult are stupid. Conspiracy is a crime involving two or more people and a theory is a hypothesis that has been proven, therefore a conspiracy theory is a proven crime.

"I am a conspiracy realist". A "theory" proven to be true by facts and evidence is no longer a theory.

All conspiracy theories are either true or have a strong element of truth to them. They don’t come out of nowhere, and you’ll almost always find, once you get through the buffer layer of controlled opposition and gate-keeping, that the subscribers of any given theory have solid reasons for believing it.

For example, at first "they" said this was a "conspiracy theory", now court records have proved it to be totally true:

Court documents revealed this week confirmed that the father of 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand once worked as a lobbyist for a secretive sexcult, but left after the upstate New York group sued him, according to a report.

The documents backed up previous accounts that the New York Democrat's father, Doug Rutnik, worked for Albany-based Nxivm for four months in 2004 at a rate of $25,000 per month, Big League Politics reported.

Rutnik was sued when he attempted to distance himself from the group before reaching a settlement.

“Her father Doug Rutnik came to work as a consultant for NXIVM. ... He was fired, they sued him, and they had to pay him $100,000,” former NXIVM employee Frank Parlato told Big League Politics. “Her father’s wife, her stepmother, was also a member of NXIVM. ... Doug got her into the cult, Gillibrand’s father got Gillibrand’s future stepmother into the cult. Doug left the cult because he was sued. Clare Bronfman, after her father was sued, donated money to Gillibrand. Gillibrand accepted it.”

An unnamed witness described how Gillibrand once sat at a Nxivm table at a Hillary Clinton fundraiser, according to the political news site.

“Yeah the three front VIP tables were all brought by NXIVM and she was sitting with Nancy Salzman,” court documents said, referring to the former Nxivm co-founder who pleaded guilty in March to a single racketeering charge.

Gillibrand has sometimes been called a #MeToo champion for her advocacy on gender equality and women’s issues. She has denied having a connection to Nxivm and said she first heard of it through extensive media coverage.

"Senator Gillibrand had never heard of this group until she recently read about them in the newspaper," a spokesman for Gillibrand told the Washington Free Beacon in March 2018. "She is glad that federal and state prosecutors have taken action in this case."

The group and its leader Keith Raniere, known as Vanguard, have been accused by former members of forcing women to become sex slaves and branding women like cattle with Raniere’s initials. Some women said they were forced to hand over nude photos of themselves in case they disobeyed him and were forced to perform manual labor, according to the Post.

Other former members have described Nxivm as a “cult” centered around Raniere. Salzman admitted to a federal judge to spying on Nxivm’s perceived enemies and hacking into email accounts.

Her daughter Laura Salzman, 42, also entered a guilty plea last month to keeping her own personal female slave locked in a room for two years and threatening to deport her back to Mexico, court transcripts said.

Gillibrand’s father & stepmother, who are second cousins, were both heavily involved in the cult shortly before they got married, according to eyewitness accounts from ex-NXIVM employees. Gillibrand’s father Doug Rutnik was employed by NXIVM.

Other examples include the matters where all of the "mainstream" media first called the charges a "conspiracy theory", but each charge turned out to be proven, ie:

The perpetrators operate a massive and abusive sex cult. The perverts in the SandHill Road Venture Capital offices, located between Highway 280 down to to Santa Cruz Avenue on Sand Hill Road in Menlo Park, California, are the main perpetrators of this global cartel. Their executives at Google, Facebook, Netflix, Linkedin, Twitter, and their related holdings, comprise the rest. Their sex cult actions have been widely covered in the news individually in the Joe Lonsdale rape case, The Kleiner Perkins Ellen Pao sex abuse lawsuit, The Eric Schmidt sex penthouse stories, The Jeffrey Epstein case, The Google Forrest Hayes hooker murder case, The Andy Rubin sex slave case, The Sergy Brin 3-way sex romp scandal, The British Hydrant investigation, The Elon Musk Steve Jurvetson billionaire sex parties scandals,The NXIVM sexual slave cases, The Michael Goguen anal sex slave trial, The Tom Perkins Hooker Parties and thousands of other cases and federal divorce court filings. This group of people have proven themselves, over and over, to be sociopath control freaks not fit for participation in public commerce, public policy or media control. The Four Seasons Hotel and Rosewood Hotels in Silicon Valley are estimated to engage in over $30,000.00 of high-end escort sex trafficking per day, a portion of it managed by Eastern Bloc Mafia operators. At least 10 Ukrainian escorts fly in and out of SFO and SJO airports every week for these Cartel members. You here about the female victims of this sex cult but you rarely hear about the young male victims. An inordinate number of the members are closeted homosexuals who seek to use their media monopolies and massive lobbyist ownership's to promote child sex and child sex change consideration. Hence the massive, sudden, promotion of those issues in all of their media since they took power in 2008 and pretty much ran the Obama White House. The press has widely reported on underage boy sex clubs and the payment to parents for the blood of young boys by these oligarchs. A large number of tech VC's and senior executives are covert gay activists who hire women to act as their "beards". Their elitist Yale and Stanford fraternity house upbringings promoted "bromances", "rape culture" and a don't-worry-daddy-will-fix-it mentality. Highly gay law firms, (like Covington, Perkins and Sonsini), actively lobby to place gay politicians in office from their Bay Area offices. The AngelGate Conspiracy ( ); The Job Collusion Case ( ) and hundreds of other cases, prove that the perpetrators regularly meet, conspire, collude and racketeer, in full view of law enforcement, without ever getting arrested by the FBI because they bribe public officials in order to avoid prosecution. The perpetrators operate in extreme violation of federal RICO laws yet no DOJ or SEC RICO case has been filed against them by federal officials because, according to Senator Nunes: "Some FBI executives are compromised...." The perpetrators have used their exclusive monopolized cash flow of taxpayer financed grants, contracts and internet infrastructure to purchase the majority of the political lobby firms and technology law firms in America. This gives them an illegal, illicit and unfair ability to control: 1.) which laws are made or stalled, 2.) who gets government funded or blocked, 3.) Who gets kick-back tax breaks, tax credits and tax waivers and who does not,  4.) Who gets state-sponsored reprisal targeting or benefits blockades,  5.) Who gets revolving door payola jobs at their companies, 6.) Who gets PAC money bribes, 7.) and many other effects that are legally defined as "racketeering".

All proven.

Never use "Conspiracy Theorist" as a slam!
