Conspiracies Do Exist: Did The FBI Cover Up The Explosion Of TWA 800 In 1996? William F. Marshall, The Federalist; Also see, Why QAnon Followers Believe: The Psychology Of Embracing Far-Right Conspiracy Theories, Nicole Karlis, Salon

CS Commentary: ‘Q’ disciples are likely to dismiss this outright simply because Salon is a left leaning media outlet, however, the principles outlined are true for both left and right believers in conspiracies. The writer gives us insight into why we are attracted to things that explain the world we live in.

Update, Supreme Court Hearing: Kavanaugh vs. Feinstein, Fox News/You Tube

In Praise Of Conspiracies, Ryan Holiday, Observer

CS Commentary: Holiday quotes Peter Thiel, who with his own ‘conspiracy’ put Gawker out of business and “has become famous for a thought exercise, which he likes to ask job applicants and toss out at dinner parties: “What important truth do very few people agree with you on?” The downside of this article is that it fails to mention that most conspiracies do not prove themselves (like Thiel’s and the one against Milo Yiannopoulos) – most of them, like the Pizzagate conspiracy, fizzle out because of serious flaws in information, proof, or logic. Holiday also seems ignorant of – or at least ignores – the inimical nature of the definition of conspiracy: “a secret plan by a group to do something unlawful or harmful.”

The Granddaddy Of All Conspiracy Theories, Rolling Stone, Mark Jacobsen

CS Commentary: Liberal slant as expected from Rolling Stone, but this is an excerpt from Jacobsen’s coming book about William Cooper, who may have started the whole concept of ‘conspiracy theories.’ A fascinating and short read.

Must-see videos


What The Left Is Willing To Do To Maintain Control, Tucker Carlson, Fox News; Also see, Hillary Clinton Calls For End To Electoral College, The Intelligence Report, Fox Business

CS Commentary: More evidence that what Democrats really want is to rewrite the U.S.Constitution. Our Founders wisely created a limited democracy, not a free democracy, realizing that ‘majority rule’ quickly leads to mob rule and national disintegration.

Lance Wallnau: Takes ‘A Special Kind Of Dumb’ To Believe Some Of QAnon’s Claims, PSCP.TV

CS Commentary: Relevant portion begins at around the 4:00 mark and runs through the 13:00+ mark. He touches on Alex Jones, Mark Taylor prophecies, and more. His take – our words, not his – seems to be that ‘Q’ is a distraction and a false path that some in the Trump and Christian community have gone down.

Understanding ‘Q’ Is A Massive Undertaking

Exposed – Creator of ‘Qanon’ Speaks For The First Time, Jack Prosobiec, One America News

CS Commentary: Common Sense Interpretation published a comprehensive and objective analysis on ‘Q’ on Medium on 8/23/18 (see link below) that concluded that ” to believe that ‘Q’ is legitimate involves major leaps of faith over multiple inconsistencies in data.” This article by Prosobiec, one of the initial propagators of the de-bunked Pizzagate conspiracy who eventually recanted his part in that phenomenon appears to de-bunk and expose ‘Q’. Prosobiec now works for One America News, a pro-Trump network. This ‘proof’ is unlikely to convince ‘Q’ disciples. However, this, plus the preponderance of evidence presented in our report below in Editor’s Choice certainly raises ‘reasonable doubt’ that Q is genuine – and means that more likely than not ‘Q’ is a prank or a fraud. Ultimately though, one has to admit – as even Praying Medic has said – no one knows the identity of ‘Q.’ That still remains true.

Anonymous Op-Ed: I Am Part Of The Resistance Within The Trump Administration, New York Times

CS Commentary: If anyone needed proof that the Deep State exists, this Op-Ed certainly provides it. The writer’s hypocrisy never shines through more clearly than when he holds up John McCain as the great national example and points to the views expressed in his Farewell Letter: “We weaken our greatness when we confuse our patriotism with tribal rivalries that have sown resentment and hatred and violence in all the corners of the globe. We weaken it when we hide behind walls, rather than tear them down, when we doubt the power of our ideals, rather than trust them to be the great force for change they have always been.” This a farewell letter that extols ideals above common sense, ignores God, and that the writer uses to embrace a form of ‘tribalism’ against the President – as McCain exhibited in his later days. The writer narcissistically makes himself ‘King’ of his own version of the American ‘tribe.’ The last time we checked President Trump was duly elected and he is still the President. Trump’s tweet of “Treason?” does not seem far off.

Missile Ranges To israel

A Former CIA Operative On The State Of US Intelligence And How Well Trump Is Doing His Job, Ben Weingarten, The Federalist

CS Commentary: A CIA insider talks about the corruption in top levels of government, particularly the CIA, how we won in Iraq and Afghanistan then messed them both up, how the Chinese are ‘eating our lunch’, terrorists flowing across the Southern border, and the bureaucratic dismantling of the US intelligence operation globally. A must-read. Quote: “Donald Trump represents a transformation. Revolution is probably an accurate term to use. I don’t know when the last time is we have seen such a thing….I should say as an aside in regard to the Russian thing, the entire assertion of Russian collusion, the collusion between Donald Trump and Russian intelligence, is ludicrous.”

The Muslim Brotherhood’s Plan To Destroy America, Brigette Gabriel, You Tube

Hamas-Israel Ceasefire Talks Show That Peace Is Impossible, Caroline Glick, Breitbart

Quote: “Far from pushing it out for failure to govern in any recognizable sense of the term, a majority of Gazans continue to support the jihadist group and to share its program of continuous warfare against Israel, with the aim of annihilating the Jewish state.“

Why Your Critics Are Not The One’s Who Count, Dr. Brene Brown

CS Commentary: We don’t know all the Brown thinks or believes but what we like about her is that she is real, relatable, vulnerable, and always moving forward – and she shows the average person how they can be and do the same. Great words.

Brene Brown: The Quest For True Belonging, Chase Jarvis Live

CS Commentary: We are just getting to know Brene Brown and we don’t necessarily agree with everything she says or believes – but much of her content is enlightening and stimulating, especially if self-awareness and personal growth are among your goals. Definitely a long video, but well worth watching. We suggest you break it down into 15 minute segments and watch one a day for a week. Great for artists, innovators, entrepreneurs, musicians, and creatives in general, but also especially good for anyone who is ‘Braving the Wilderness.’ Quote: “Every creative knows what its like to stand alone…Be a part of a creative group or community, but don’t ever believe for a second that you are not going to have to stand on your own.”

Quotes Of The Month:

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” – Teddy Roosevelt
