US State Department Says “Conspiracy Theories Exist In The Realm Of Myth”

Zero Hedge

The US State Department’s America.gov web site, which purports to engage international audiences on issues of foreign policy, society and values, has dedicated a special section to conspiracy theories and misinformation, claiming:

“Conspiracy theories exist in the realm of myth, where imaginations run wild, fears trump facts, and evidence is ignored. As a superpower, the United States is often cast as a villain in these dramas.”

Some of the conspiratorial myths “officially” debunked by the State Department include:

The US military’s use of depleted uranium in combat and comparing this to radioactivity from detonations of nuclear weapons.

“Uranium evokes very powerful fears. It is associated with atomic weapons, mass annihilation, radiation sickness, cancer and birth defects. Depleted uranium evokes these same fears, despite the fact that it has been depleted of much of its radioactivity. Even if you accept this fact, your fear-based associations can be more powerful than logic and facts. Compare how you feel about tungsten to how you feel about depleted uranium. Both are heavy metals, but “depleted uranium” might sound scarier to you.”

Never mind that the World Health Organization says that depleted uranium is weakly radioactive and a radiation dose from it would be about 60% of that from purified natural uranium with the same mass. It’s only 60% as radioactive as the real stuff, so it’s safe to use in weapons systems we’re lobbing into neighborhoods in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The employment of economic hit men to entrap countries in huge amounts of debt.

“Economic conspiracy theories are often based on the false, but popular, idea that powerful individuals are motivated overwhelmingly by their desire for wealth, rather than the wide variety of human motivations we all experience. (This one-dimensional, cartoonish view of human nature is at the heart of Marxist ideology, which once held hundreds of millions under its sway.)”

“One fantasy, reflecting this simplistic, unimaginative way of interpreting human events, falsely claims that U.S. national security agencies employ “economic hit men” to entrap countries with huge amounts of debt.”

“Within the United States, those who fear international influences may believe false stories that, with Canada and Mexico, the United States is replacing the dollar with a new “Amero” currency, patterned after the Euro, or that the United States is sacrificing its sovereignty to an imaginary “North American Union.”

Two words: Goldman Sachs. [ZH: we also recommend reading Confessions of an Economic Hitman for the truth on this matter]

And, while the Amero may not be a reality now, there is only one way that the United States is going to pay off the national debt that our domestic economic hit men have strapped us with, and this is through either devaluation or all out default. In both cases the US dollar as we know it today will be completely destroyed and a new currency system will be required. Call it a theory, we think it’s fact, and if they’re doing it to our own country, why would they not do it to third-world foreigners?

The State Department has also made efforts to debunk the myth that President Obama is not a US citizen.

“Today, some conspiracy theorists falsely claim President Obama was not born in the United States, making him ineligible to be president. However, there is no doubt that he was born in Hawaii.”

There may be no doubt in the minds of those appointed to their posts by President Obama or those hired to write the State Departments debunking blogs, but millions of Americans question the President’s eligibility to serve for a number of reasons that include his failure to provide a legitimate Certificate of Live Birth issued by the State of Hawaii, his inability to explain his trip to Pakistan in the 1980’s when holders of US passports were not allowed into the country, and most recently, his use of a social security number issued only for residents of the State of Connecticut, in which he never lived.

No government debunking of conspiracy myths would be complete without discussion of September 11th:

Dramatic, polarizing events often give rise to conspiracy theories, and the September 11 attacks were the most dramatic terrorist attacks in history. Nonsense about them abounds, especially in the popular video “Loose Change.”

See “The Top September 11 Conspiracy Theories” for an overview. There was no “controlled demolition” of the World Trade Center towers. Instead, the unprecedented attack by hijacked airliners full of jet fuel destroyed support pillars, loosened fireproofing insulation, and ignited fires that destroyed the twin towers. The collapse of the north tower heavily damaged World Trade Center 7, igniting fires and causing its collapse.

A hijacked plane, not a cruise missile, hit the Pentagon, as detailed in a photo gallery. Four thousand Jews did not miss work at the World Trade Center on September 11. And al-Qaida has admitted, many times, that it carried out the attacks.

At the risk of sounding like Debra Medina Truthers, we’ll refrain from arguing every point, however we’d like to point out to those of our readers who have not yet viewed the popular video “Loose Change,” that they take the time to do so before swallowing this nine sentence so-called debunking of the largest crime in American history.

If nothing else, we’d suggest to readers that there are many questions that went unanswered about 9/11 which include, but are not limited to, over fifty (50) missing closed circuit videos around the Pentagon that were never released to the public and the fact the Osama Bin Laden was never officially implicated for his role in the September 11th WTC plot.

A couple of conspiracies which were considered myths at the time of their occurrence, yet were not debunked by the State Department’s new web site include the Gulf of Tonkin incident which lead to the Vietnam war and the CIA drug transportation rings of the 1980’s. Because of the overwhelming evidence that was uncovered by independent researchers and reluctantly released by the government, these myths and fantasies eventually became realities.

We wonder if the US government may be rushing to judgment about wild imaginations and irrational fears when they have failed to answer simple questions regarding many of the conspiracy “theories” above. Naturally, many of these will remain theories until the facts are openly provided to those requesting the information, at which point they will either be conspiracy fact or non-truths.

For the time being, those who seek the truth will likely remain baffled, confused and misdirected, much like the magic bullet that killed JFK, because any good conspiracy creates a web of illegible disinformation and misinformation, not from those looking for answers, but by those who have the power to provide them.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. Or if you need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install and other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.

Why?

Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
