Dept. of Justice Conspiracy Theories

The main stream media (MSM) has been used unwittingly to distort the term "conspiracy theory" from the real meaning it has, and should have.

It has been perverted into an unreal, frivolous meaning they use in place of investigative journalism.

Can you imagine a U.S. Department of Justice attorney general going into a courtroom saying the defendant is charged with a "conspiracy theory", causing the court to snicker or giggle like an MSM journalist does when that term is mentioned?

Do you think that ever happens in court? No, because conspiracy theories are as serious as a heart attack to any professional DOJ attorney:
The concept of criminal conspiracy has its earliest roots in fourteenth century English common law. At that time, it saw limited use as a legal theory. It became more broadly applied in the United States in the nineteenth century, though still the scope of prosecutions was not wide. Today, however, conspiracy is a far-reaching legal principle, embracing antitrust actions, an enormous number of more traditional criminal cases, and even tort lawsuits. It is the basis of prosecutions dealing with, among other crimes, drug violations, securities fraud, murder for hire, bank robbery, and extortion.

... Conspiracy is an agreement by two or more people to commit a crime.
(Conspiracy Theory, Law). Congress passed a statute long ago that is used frequently in the federal courts:
If two or more persons conspire either to commit any offense against the United States, or to defraud the United States, or any agency thereof in any manner or for any purpose, and one or more of such persons do any act to effect the object of the conspiracy, each shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both.

If, however, the offense, the commission of which is the object of the conspiracy, is a misdemeanor only, the punishment for such conspiracy shall not exceed the maximum punishment provided for such misdemeanor.
(18 U.S.C. § 371, emphasis added). Conspiracy theories are a joke only to the jokers in the MSM propaganda organs.

Conspiracy theories are what an attorney general comes up with when s/he wants to put someone in prison because that person conspired with others to commit a crime.

It is not fantasy, it is real, and it happens each and every day.

The MSM la la land is where the fantasy comes from.

If the establishment obsession with banning conspiracy theories becomes real, in the form of censure or worse, will they ban the conspiracy theory portion of our federal law?

The conspiracy theory law that has been around for centuries to make society safer?

The next post in this series is here.


  1. Conspiracy theories are strictly off limits to those who have wrapped their entire identity in the Stars and Bars. Undoubtedly, the alleged 9-11 conspirators realized this, and used it to their advantage.

    The same can be said about the whole subsequent "War on Terror" effort. That's why I firmly believe that whatever their goals were for initiating this whole mess (the bankrupting of the US, the selling off of the entire US and world economy to the central banking cartel, and the complete suspension of human rights in the name of "security," just to name a few), they WILL be met. There's simply no easy way to put this genie back in the bottle.

    I mean, can you imagine the right's reaction if conspiracy theories ever actually got traction? There would be accusations of treason and wholesale blood-letting at the very least, and in all liklihood a government crackdown a la the messiest of any in recent third-world history.

  2. disaffected,

    There are conservative and liberal professionals in the 9/11 Truther movement. It is across the board.

    The danger at this moment, to their free speech and freedom of association rights, is coming from an Obama Administration official.

    Nevertheless I get your point, if the neoCon torture mongers ever hook-up with Obama's boy there would be a bloodbath against conspiracy theory aficionados of every stripe.

    They would probably tie it to bin Laden and terrorism to scare the public even more senseless.
