Diana was killed by the monarchy, 9/11 was an inside job, Roswell was an alien landing cover up etc, etc. Those conspiracies are old news, here's some that you probably haven't heard of...
Even those who feel that conspiracy theories are for deranged hermits who sit in the dark burning out their eyes reading about them at 3am on the PC (as I do), have heard of the everyday far out tales. Diana was killed by the monarchy, 9/11 was an inside job, Roswell was an alien landing cover up etc, etc.
Although most of the mentioned probably do hold truth to them, they’re common knowledge to a lot of people who already think they’re bullshit. The conspiracy theories below are ones usually only taken notice of by kind – the kind who scrutinise the news as if it’s a puzzle waiting to be unravelled, living in a constant state of paranoia and hopping on anything that holds a bit of cloak-and-dagger to it.
The Suspicious Death of Dorothy Killgallen
American journalist Dorothy Killgallen was well known for her column in the New York Evening Journal. From as far back as 1959 Killagallen openly criticised the US government, reported on UFOs with an open mind and was also the only person to interview Lee Harvey Oswald’s killer, Jack Ruby, without the looming presence of a policeman in earshot.
In November 1965 Dorothy Killgallen was found dead in her home just 12 hours after being on a TV show. She apparently had a belly fully of booze and barbiturates (the same as what the Black Panther’s Fred Hampton was drugged with before being shot down by the police), but the cause of death was ruled “undetermined”.
Dorothy Killgallen was a respected reporter who wrote in a large paper about the CIA hiring the Mafia to assassinate Castro and how a leading British official (rumoured to be Lord Mountbatten) told her that a secret meeting had been held about the dangers of UFOs. It’s safe to say she was a thorn in any government’s side. People believe the US government killed her to keep her quiet, and to be honest they’re probably right.
Frank Zappa was a CIA Mole
In the early 60s and 70s, in a time of daisy chains, free love, psychedelics and desert dwelling cult leaders, Laurel Canyon in California played host to the peace loving hippies of the era. It was also the place where rebel guitarist Frank Zappa met his untimely death from cancer.
Zappa is considered a musical legend to many, but conspiracy theorists believe he could’ve been a key component of an undercover operation ran by the CIA to infiltrate and control the hippie movement.
Even Jim Morrison’s dad was a high-ranking naval officer.
It’s been proven that the CIA were conducting terrifying mind controlling experiments under the guise of the infamous MK-ULTRA operations around that time. Frank Zappa’s dad was a chemical warfare specialist who’d been assigned to Edgewood Arsenal, a base that is said to have been heavily involved with MK-ULTRA. Zappa grew up on various US air bases and installations, immersing himself in the peace and love movement the best he could, whilst his dad worked on classified science for the military.
The story goes that Frank Zappa was groomed throughout his life by the CIA to become a double agent of the hippy movement, pulling people from it for Manchurian candidate style operations and exploring the prospects of mind control. Whilst it does seem far-fetched, all of the icons of that era seem to have come from wealthy rightwing families and are in some way involved with US intelligence – even Jim Morrison’s dad was a high-ranking naval officer.
Made in (North) Korea
If you’ve ever bought something that has “Made in Korea” branded into it, some conspiracy theorists claim that it was created in North Korea by what are effectively slaves. To make this a legitimate export product, it is then exported out of the country via a South Korean port and sold off by the American’s as fair trade goods that help the hard working folks of South Korea. In reality, if this is true, the only people this is helping are the businessmen with US/Korea relationships and large manufacturing complexes in demilitarised zones, such as the Kaesŏng Industrial Park.
The Assassination of Fred Hampton
Before the CIA managed to drag the name of the Black Panthers through the dirt in the 70s, there was a young revolutionary called Fred Hampton heading the Illinois chapter of the Panthers. Hampton was intelligent, visionary and resourceful. He set up training programs in Illinois for the poor and even arranged for the hungry to get free food if they needed it. Needless to say, Hampton was a well organised activist and was tipped by some to be the man who’d take the Black Panthers into the political arena.
The cops claimed self defence, against a man who was half asleep with no clothes on and no weapons…
After months of intelligence had been gathered on him by the FBI, Fred Hampton was shot dead in his bed next to his pregnant girlfriend. He’d been in a deep sleep after his Irish bodyguard, William O’Neal, had slipped barbiturates into his drink without him realising it. Many believe that O’Neal was hired by the FBI to sabotage any attempt Fred Hampton would’ve had at defending himself when the Chicago Police department stormed his house and pumped him full of bullets. Of course the cops claimed self defence, against a man who was half asleep with no clothes on and no weapons…
The Hoaxed Alien Autopsy Film Had Real Segments In It
In the early 90s a group of London-based “entrepreneurs” put out a film that appeared to be a very convincing autopsy of a real life alien in a clinical looking room with surgeons peeling the being apart. Ray Santilli, the man behind this hoax claimed that he was given the film by an anonymous military cameraman.
In 2006 Santilli eventually confessed and told the story of how he’d hoaxed the whole thing. The media were happy and the alien autopsy film was forgotten about, but what everyone seems to gloss over is the fact that Santilli said he did actually view a real life alien autopsy video in 1992, and that there are slides of film from the real one, embedded into the hoax. He could be making it up, but he’d already had his glory and denounced the film as a hoax before this extraordinary claim.
