16 Conspiracy Theories That Turned Out To Be True

all seeing eyeBy: Michael Snyder,
The Truth.

Are you a conspiracy theorist?  If not, perhaps you should be.  Yes, there have certainly been a lot of “conspiracy theories” over the years that have turned out not to be accurate.  However, the truth is that a large number of very prominent conspiracy theories have turned out to actually be true.  So the next time that you run into some “tin foil hat wearing lunatics”, you might want to actually listen to what they have to say.  They may actually know some things that you do not.  In fact, one recent study found that “conspiracy theorists” are actually more sane than the general population.  So the next time you are tempted to dismiss someone as a “conspiracy theorist”, just remember that the one that is crazy might actually be you.  The following are 16 popular conspiracy theories that turned out to be true…

1. “They Put Cancer Viruses Into Our Vaccines”

When I first heard about this I did not believe it.  And of course not all vaccines contain cancer viruses.  But tens of millions of Americans did receive vaccines with cancer viruses in them, and now we have learned that even the CDC has admitted that this is true…

The CDC has quickly removed a page from their website, which is now cached here, admitting that more than 98 million Americans received one or more doses of polio vaccine within an 8-year span when a proportion of the vaccine was contaminated with a cancer causing polyomavirus called SV40. It has been estimated that 10-30 million Americans could have received an SV40 contaminated dose of the vaccine.

SV40 is an abbreviation for Simian vacuolating virus 40 or Simian virus 40, a polyomavirus that is found in both monkeys and humans. Like other polyomaviruses, SV40 is a DNA virus that has been found to cause tumors and cancer.

2. “ATM Machines Will Someday Use Facial Recognition Technology”

According to the Daily Mail, a new generation of ATM machines is being developed that will use cutting edge facial recognition technology…

Cumbersome and slow cash machines with clunky buttons and tiny hard-to-see screens could soon be a thing of the past thanks to a range of next-generation ATMs.

Ohio-based security firm Diebold has created a touchscreen cash machine that works like a tablet computer, uses facial recognition and QR codes to identify and authenticate users, and has built-in safety cameras.

3. “The U.S. Government And Monsanto Are Teaming Up Against Opponents Of Genetically-Modified Food”

The establishment does not like those that are trying to stand in the way of genetically-modified food.  The following is from a recent Activist Post article

A shocking new investigative report from the largest daily newspaper in Germany alleges that Monsanto, the US Military and the US government have colluded to track and disrupt both anti-GMO activists and independent scientists who study the adverse effects of genetically modified food.

As revealed yesterday by Sustainable Pulse, on July 13th the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung detailed information on how the US Government “advances the interests of their corporations,” focusing on Monsanto as a prime example.

The report titled, “The Sinister Monsanto Group: ‘Agent Orange’ to Genetically Modified Corn,” described a ‘new fangled cyber war’ being waged against both eco-activists and independent scientists by supporters and former employees of Monsanto, who are described as “operationally powerful assistants” and who have taken up sometimes high-ranking posts in the US administration, regulatory authorities, and some of whom have connections deep within the military industrial establishment, including the CIA.

4. “Someday Scientists Will Be Using Millions Of Genetically-Modified Animals In Scientific Experiments”

Did you know that literally millions of genetically-modified animals are being experimented on in labs all over the globe?…

The number of genetically modified (GM) animals used in scientific research in Britain has exceeded the number of ordinary laboratory animals for the first time, according to official statistics that show a 9 per cent overall increase in the use of experimental animals last year.

Some 4,033,310 animals were used in scientific experiments started in 2012, an increase of 322,689, or 9 per cent over the previous year. There were 1.91 million scientific “procedures” used with GM animals in 2012 compared to 1.68.m procedures on normal animals.

5. “Scientists All Over The World Are Creating Extremely Bizarre Human-Animal Hybrids”

Should scientists be creating beings that are part human and part animal?  Well, it is happening all over the planet.  Just check out some of the things that a recent Slate article says is happening in labs around the world…

Not long ago, Chinese scientists embedded genes for human milk proteins into a mouse’s genome and have since created herds of humanized-milk-producing goats. Meanwhile, researchers at the University of Michigan have a method for putting a human anal sphincter into a mouse as a means of finding better treatments for fecal incontinence, and doctors are building animals with humanized immune systems to serve as subjects for new HIV vaccines.

Pretty disgusting eh?

And here are some other ways that scientists are combining humans and animals…

-Rabbit Eggs with Human Cells

-Pigs with Human Blood

-Sheep with Human Livers

-Cow Eggs with Human Cells

-Cat-Human Hybrid Proteins

For much more on this, please see my previous article entitled “Human-Animal Hybrids: Sick And Twisted Chimeras Are Being Created In Labs All Over The Planet“.

6. “Obama Is Making Government Employees Spy On One Another”

Yes, this is actually happening.  In a previous article, I described how Obama is forcing government workers to spy on the “lifestyles, attitudes and behaviors” of their fellow employees…

Federal employees and contractors are asked to pay particular attention to the lifestyles, attitudes and behaviors – like financial troubles, odd working hours or unexplained travel – of co-workers as a way to predict whether they might do “harm to the United States.” Managers of special insider threat offices will have “regular, timely, and, if possible, electronic, access” to employees’ personnel, payroll, disciplinary and “personal contact” files, as well as records of their use of classified and unclassified computer networks, polygraph results, travel reports and financial disclosure forms.

7. “Pro Wrestling Is Fake”

We have all kind of known this for a long time, right?  Well, now someone is actually leaking the results of pro wrestling matches on the Internet before they happen

A fan has provoked a furor in the world of professional wrestling after leaking the outcomes of 38 WWE matches ahead of the pay-per-view bouts.

The mystery fan, who identifies himself online as Dolphins1925, claims he has obtained the information from a source at Worldwide Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), and is revealing the results to highlight the organisation’s failure to keep its storylines confidential.

Dolphins1925 started posting the results on Reddit’s pro-wrestling forum after another fan launched a “prediction series”, asking users for their picks ahead of the matches. He has since maintained a perfect record, even leaking the results of contests involving wrestling superstars such as John Cena and The Undertaker.

8. “Someday Texas Is Going To Run Out Of Water”

Texas will always have plenty of water, right?


According to CNBC, the water crisis in some areas of Texas is rapidly reaching a breaking point…

Three straight years of blistering drought have strained Texas’ water resources. Some cities like Midland are already steeply raising their water prices. But it’s not just residents of the Lone Star State feeling parched. Texas-based companies are scrambling to reduce their water usage and enact long-term water management plans as a critical business concern.

“As the drought continues, industry’s eyes are opening,” said Jordan Furnans, senior engineer at INTERA, a Texas-based geosciences and engineering firm. Those eyes are opening to discover that more dry years are coming, he said.

There’s a desperate need for water to fuel industrial, chemical and energy operations in some parts of Texas. “If plants shut down, they’re losing millions of dollars per day,” Furnans said.

9. “The IRS Is Specifically Targeting Conservatives”

Only a small percentage of Americans would have believed this particular “conspiracy theory” last year.  But now it is all over the news.  In fact, we have just learned that applications for tax-exempt status from Tea Party groups were ordered to be sent to the only Obama political appointee at the IRS

IRS employees were ordered by their superiors–including Lois Lerner who pleaded the 5th Amendment against self-incrimination rather than testify in Congress–to send certain Tea Party tax-exemption applications to the office of the IRS’s Chief Counsel, which was headed by William Wilkins, who at that time was the only Obama political appointee at the IRS, according to a letter released today by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

“As a part of this ongoing investigation, the Committees have learned that the IRS Chief Counsel’s office in Washington, D.C. has been closely involved in some of the applications,” reads a letter released today by the House committees on Oversight and Government and Ways and Means.  “Its involvement and demands for information about political activity during the 2010 election cycle appear to have caused systematic delays in the processing of Tea Party applications.”

10. “Fluoride Is Harmful For Your Teeth”

This is a conspiracy theory that was denied for a very long time.  But now even CNN is admitting the truth…

The Department of Health and Human Services and Environmental Protection Agency are proposing the change because of an increase in fluorosis — a condition that causes spotting and streaking on children’s teeth.

11. “Using A Cell Phone Can Cause Cancer”

Can you get cancer from using a cell phone?  Well, an increasing number of studies indicate that this is actually true

At the highest exposure levels — using a mobile phone half an hour a day over a 10-year period — the study found a 40 percent increased risk of glioma brain tumors.

12. “Prescription Drugs Kill Large Numbers Of Americans”

Every single year, hundreds of thousands of Americans are killed by prescription drugs.  The following is a brief excerpt from a Vanity Fair article entitled “Deadly Medicine“…

Prescription drugs kill some 200,000 Americans every year. Will that number go up, now that most clinical trials are conducted overseas—on sick Russians, homeless Poles, and slum-dwelling Chinese—in places where regulation is virtually nonexistent, the F.D.A. doesn’t reach, and “mistakes” can end up in pauper’s graves?

13. “The Elite Want To Dramatically Reduce The Global Population”

Yes, many among the global elite really do want to substantially reduce the population of the planet.  The following quotes are from one of my previous articles

-David Rockefeller: “The negative impact of population growth on all of our planetary ecosystems is becoming appallingly evident.”

-CNN Founder Ted Turner: “A total world population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal.”

-Paul Ehrlich, a former science adviser to president George W. Bush and the author of “The Population Bomb”: “To our minds, the fundamental cure, reducing the scale of the human enterprise (including the size of the population) to keep its aggregate consumption within the carrying capacity of Earth is obvious but too much neglected or denied”

-Barack Obama’s primary science adviser, John P. Holdren: “The development of a long-term sterilizing capsule that could be implanted under the skin and removed when pregnancy is desired opens additional possibilities for coercive fertility control. The capsule could be implanted at puberty and might be removable, with official permission, for a limited number of births.”

-HBO personality Bill Maher: “I’m pro-choice, I’m for assisted suicide, I’m for regular suicide, I’m for whatever gets the freeway moving – that’s what I’m for. It’s too crowded, the planet is too crowded and we need to promote death.”

14. “Innocent People Are Murdered, Skinned And Dismembered During Satanic Rituals”

Satanists really do exist, and sometimes they do really, really awful things.  The following is one recent example

Moises Meraz-Espinoza walked into the Huntington Park Police Department two years ago to report a crime: He had killed his mother.

Officers went to the Maywood apartment that the then-18-year-old factory worker shared with his mother, Amelia Espinoza, 42, and found a gruesome scene. A trail of blood led to the bathroom, where plastic covered the walls and floor. There, they found an electrical circular saw with pieces of bone, blood and flesh stuck to the blade. Nearby, in a freezer, police found skin and muscles stored in plastic bags. The woman’s skull, with all her teeth plucked out, her eyes removed and two upside-down crosses carved into the bone, was stashed in a backpack.

Prosecutors say that Meraz-Espinoza strangled his mother and then skinned, filleted and dismembered her body as part of a satanic ritual.

15. “The NSA Is Spying On Our Phone Calls, Internet Searches And Financial Transactions”

Thanks to Edward Snowden, we have learned much more about how the NSA spies on all of us.  And just this week it has come out that the NSA has no problem snooping on you if you are a friend of a friend of a friend of someone that might be a potential terrorist…

Chris Inglis, the agency’s deputy director, was one of several government representatives—including from the FBI and the office of the Director of National Intelligence—testifying before the House Judiciary Committee this morning. Most of the testimony largely echoed previous testimony by the agencies on the topic of the government’s surveillance, including a retread of the same offered examples for how the Patriot Act and Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act had stopped terror events.

But Inglis’ statement was new. Analysts look “two or three hops” from terror suspects when evaluating terror activity, Inglis revealed. Previously, the limit of how surveillance was extended had been described as two hops. This meant that if the NSA were following a phone metadata or web trail from a terror suspect, it could also look at the calls from the people that suspect has spoken with—one hop. And then, the calls that second person had also spoken with—two hops. Terror suspect to person two to person three. Two hops. And now: A third hop.

16. “The Federal Reserve Is A Perpetual Debt Machine That Is Designed To Create Inflation”

The Federal Reserve is a private banking cartel that was created by the bankers and that serves the interest of the bankers.  It was designed to perpetually increase the U.S. national debt and to perpetually create inflation.  Unfortunately, it has done a great job on both counts.  Since the Federal Reserve was created back in 1913, the U.S. national debt has gotten more than 5000 times larger, and the value of the U.S. dollar has fallen by more than 96 percent.

Are there any other “conspiracy theories” that you would add to this list?  Please feel free to join the discussion by posting a comment below…

    i thought a ‘conspiracy theory’ was only a theory until there was some evidence,.

    how about fema camps? true or false?

      As with Michelle Bachmann and Glenn Beck’s other absurd claims, it appears we have not been all hustled off to FEMA concentration camps. Go figure ;) and she seemed to believable and level-headed…not!

    “In fact, one recent study found that ‘conspiracy theorists’ are actually more sane than the general population.”


    Anyone who has ever listened to 5 minutes of Alex Jones (where much of these conspiracy claims come from) can see he is not saner than the general population–quite to the contrary. It is no surprise he constantly rails against the use of psychoactive drugs, because he has probably been told many times in his life that he is out of his mind and needs some kind of medicine. Interestingly, many people here immediately chimed in about the evils of such medicines, probably because they have similar mental health histories to Alex. So, I think we got some great real time evidence about what the likely mental health conditions of conspiracy-believers really are.

      how do u know u are not the mentally ill one and the rest of us are sane? u don’t. There is NO SUCH THING AS “MENTAL ILLNESS” it is simply personality traits that have been deemed unfavorable by certain people. If u don’t like someones personality just drug them until they act more like u

    The alleged IRS targeting of tea party groups has been thoroughly debunked. Even the Daily Beast called BS on that: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/07/17/the-nature-of-the-beast-the-breathless-press-and-the-phony-irs-scandal.html .

    To the useful idiot trolls here: Michael Tomasky is a neoliberal shill no better than a necon shill – both are incredulously enamored by their fraudulently elected evil emperors that wear no clothes in our imperialistic left-right duopoly that can do no wrong as long as their symbiotic counterpart is guilty of the same game. After all, both are corrupted by the same money and power. Nothing changes when both parties are making matters worse – but then that’s the Hegelian Dialectic at work. Go figure.

  6. Sheila  August 13, 2013 at 9:55 pm

    Hmm. Am definitely intrigued by conspiracy theory, though found this all so argumentative (though in some cases intelligently so). Am at a loss to know how anyone can actually challenge some of this stuff. City Hall, and all that. Thoroughly understand the inclination to just hole up and read books! One of these days it will all go away. Regardless.

    A huge electronic geo magnetic shift in the polar opposites cut power for the entire planet taking us all back to the 15th century will effectively cull the world human population perhaps alien technology but obviously the spike and mathematics obviously point to a dramatic event for the human race prepare !!!

  13. Wendy  February 7, 2014 at 11:04 pm

    Read with an open mind.. Before my comment, I am bias toward drugs that claim to help and yet, after time the wrong drug has proven itself to chemically imbalance or do more harm.. in itself one topic of controversy. In this way the article exposes itself to open to criticism due to the fact it is trying to encompass too many variables of thought provoking facts that could and by the comments, have, been picked apart systematically .. So why not deal with one fact at a time.. Again I find myself wanting to talk about other aspects which may detract from the message, for example the nanny states telling us we should stop having a social life, stop drinking and smoking.. Then the flip side being we live longer, our minds cant take it, our children cant afford it and there is more misery from loneliness in the world and I can work all my life for my home to end up in a care home. I am so confused over the issue of helping people to survive yet tales being told of over population that I wonder why foreign aid exists. So for those that say it simply is or it simply is not BECAUSE you say so .. spare a thought for a simple soul trying to find their way

    When I was 14yrs old, the newly elected Australian Federal Government, under Prime Minister Gough Whitlam, was brought down when the opposition blocked supply, and the Governor General, a relic of the British Empire and supposedly a symbolic post by that time, sacked the Government. At the time, hippies, communists, socialists and other conspiracy theorists claimed that the CIA was involved, and of course, they were shouted down and laughed at by the establishment. Many years later, a young CIA decoder, having become so disillusioned with his own country that he was passing secrets to the Russians, was caught and jailed for life. His story is immortalized in the best selling book, and box office movie: ‘The Falcon and the Snowman’. I still remember my businessman uncle scoffing imperiously at me when, as a teenager, I suggested that the USA might have been involved in the downfall of the Whitlam Government. And it’s worth telling you now, that when I confronted him, with the truth as we now knew it to be, many years later on his 90th birthday, he stayed firmly in denial, he wouldn’t hear of the book, the movie, the actual guy in jail, or his 60 Minutes interview talking about the CIA bringing down a duly elected government in a friendly country. He wouldn’t see the truth, even when it was indisputable… by choice. And that’s what we’re up against.

  15. DWS  February 8, 2014 at 8:03 pm

    How about the fact that Martin Luther King’s assassination has been proved in a civil court case by the King family to have been carried out by the CIA. Adds a bit more weight to the idea that they also assassinated JFK doesn’t it, and the fact that there are STILL 50,000 classified documents concerning JFK which have been reclassified TWICE! This would only happen if they contained information that would still be damaging to the government today.

  16. DWS  February 8, 2014 at 8:32 pm

    1 How about the fact that dental amalgam contains harmful mercury.

    2 Or that natural saturated fat and cholesterol are actually harmless (as proven by a Cochran study recently) and that it is infact SUGAR that is causing the obesity epidemic plus many other health problems such as cancer, heart disease and diabetes.

    3 Or that the cancer industry is in business not to cure cancer, but to treat symptoms and prolong the illness – much like the rest of the so-called “heathcare”system.

    4 Or that all the government health agencies are actually funded by junk food companies for the purpose of promoting junk food (aka sugar and grain products)

    5 Or that pharmaceutical drugs are more harmful and less efficacious than natural herb remedies which work by stimulating the immune system to cure itself.

    6 Or that TV is controlled by big industry, and news is censored so that we don’t get to find out what is really going (in case we get upset and start a civil uprising).Example of events which never made the mainstream news are: 2 million people in 400 separate demonstrations in the March Against Monsanto in May 1012, GSK being fined $3 billion for faking data for 3 of its drugs resulting in the deaths of 10’s of thousands.

    7 Or that GMO’s cause organ damage and tumours, (as demonstrated by the studies done by Seralini and another done by Pustai, plus others), and the outrageous retraction of the Seralini study after an ex-Monsanto employee was suddenly drafted into a newly created editorial position at the publisher which published the study.

    8 Or that vaccines contain mercury and cause a great deal more harm than is admitted by the pharmaceutical companies who conduct their own studies in secret.

    9 Or that fracking poisons the ground water supply causing immense harm.

    10 Or that ADHD is a made-up illness that is actually caused by intolerance to a poisoned food suply.

    11 Or that antibiotic overuse in factory farming is producing superbug immune to antibiotics.

    12 Or that aspartame (sugar substitute in diet drinks) is a neurotoxin which was banned by the FDA for many years until Rumsfeld (a co patent holder of aspartame) forced it through.

    13 Or that pesticides are killing the bees, which endangers the human food supply.

    14 Or that plastics containing BPA, which is in the linings of all tin cans, is a molecule that mimicks oestrogen, causing early pubity in girls.

    15 Or that canabis has anti-cancer properties.

    17 Or that statins cause more harm than benefit.

    18 Or that raw milk is a health food.

    19 Or that sun cream causes cancer, and that sun exposure provides vitamin D which actually protects you from cancer.

    I’m sure there are more.

    • Zoe  February 9, 2014 at 2:17 am

      #10 – if ADHD is make believe why do you say it is “caused” by anything? Many of the points you make are also very flawed.
