(PolicyMic.com) – During the 2008 Presidential campaign, I (along with many others) tried to argue that there was no legitimate difference between the grumpiest old man John McCain and the constitutional law professor turned Hope and Change motivator Barack Obama. It was clear that neither candidate was going to rollback the war profiteering military industrial complex. McCain’s hawkish attitude towards oil rich foreign lands, including his infamous “Bomb, Bomb, Iran” ditty, and Obama’s foreign policy adviser of choice, Zbigniew Brzezinski, who founded Al-Qaeda (at that point as a foil against the Soviets in Afghanistan) and authored The Grand Chessboard were tell-tale signs that the imperialist foreign policy would continue unabridged. It was also clear that neither candidate intended on curtailing the runaway casino financial system that benefits the 0.1% at the expense of the taxpayer. Both McCain and Obama stressed the urgency of the bailouts that sent trillions to Wall Street — who just happened to be the main campaign contributors for both candidates.
Today, exposing the false Left-Right paradigm is much easier. Goldman Sachs (R) vs. Goldman Sachs (D). Romneycare or Obamacare? Neither candidate is offering peace. More wars. More big government. The same old song and dance.
14 Conspiracy Theories That The Media Now Admits Are Conspiracy Facts

How many times have you heard the mainstream media dismiss certain points of view as “conspiracy theories”? It seems as though one of the easiest ways to brush something off is to label it as something that only “conspiracy theorists” would believe. Well, you know what? A whole lot of the time the “conspiracy theorists” are right and the mainstream media is wrong. In fact, we owe a great debt to “conspiracy theorists” because they will go places and investigate things that the mainstream media would never even touch. The reality is that the mainstream media only tells us what the government and the big corporations want us to hear, and much of the time it is those in the alternative media that are left with the task of trying to figure out what the real truth is. So don’t look down on conspiracy theories or conspiracy theorists. In a world where almost everything we are told is a lie, the truth can be very difficult to find.
The following are 14 conspiracy theories that the media now admits are conspiracy facts….
