Predictions: The Bane of the Alternative Media_Featured_, Conspiracies Tuesday, August 14th, 2012
The 2012 Olympics have come and gone. Fanfare in, fanfare out, some amazing athletic performances, and a whole mess of product positioning left behind.
Despite the mini-rant I gave on my radio show on July 28 on why I hated the Olympics so much, I don’t really hate the Olympics. I admire the athletes from around the world who train so hard and compete so incredibly.
And I did glean bits of the Olympics here and there on TV. Of course, the athletes were amazing. Usain Bolt is clearly superhuman. Anthony Joshua gave a nice come-from-behind effort to win the gold in boxing. The U.S. Women’s basketball team has officially become legendary, winning their fifth Olympic gold medal in a row. On the last day, I caught some gymnastics and wrestling, and all of the athletes looked just astounding.
What I simply can’t stand is the endless hype. The marketing, advertising, product positioning, fanfare, and hoopla that is so over-the-top. As great as the athletes are, the surrounding hype is even more obnoxious. I know, I know, you’ve got to pay the bills and I’m being a killjoy. Whatever.
But the reason I am writing about the Olympics is for a different reason altogether. It is because from the viewpoint of what we like to call the alternative media, nothing happened.
And what was supposed to happen, you may ask? Well, unless you have had your head glued to mainstream news for the last four years, you have heard some of the predictions, repeated with variations from countless so-called “inside sources,” that there was supposed to be a Major Event during the 2012 Olympics. I admit I haven’t researched every aspect of this, but it appears to have derived from the late Rik Clay, and then was grafted onto the concept of the alleged Project Blue Beam, or other False Flag ideas.
Simply put, the 2012 Olympics were supposed to feature a phony alien invasion that was designed to scare the hell out of you so that you would acquiesce into accepting an overt global fascism. The primary day for this apparently was supposed to be Saturday, August 4. A great holographic display of an ET mothership (or, depending on your variation in this, Jesus, Satan, or whomever) was supposed to appear and, one supposes, people were simply going to check their brains and accept it all.
I have always thought this idea to be untenable. The false alien invasion meme is a joke, always has been. Try imagine the logistics of pulling something like that off. If you thought 9/11 was a big one, that’s nothing compared with this. I discussed some of my objections to such a Project Blue Beam scenario here, when (once again) such predictions were running rampant and leading people in circles.
Now, it’s not that there aren’t false flag events. Anyone who has read or listened to me in the past knows that I believe these things happen. So, regarding the Olympics, there were a few more realistic scenarios offered, such as a false “terrorist” attack occurring, something really big, like on the order of 9/11, which would further cement our growing global nastiness. On the face of it, I could believe something like that, so long as there is actual evidence supporting it, which in this case there was not.
