Is conspiracy theory nothing more than cognitive dissonance?

Cognitive dissonance is an uncomfortable feeling caused by holding contradictory ideas simultaneously. The theory of cognitive dissonance proposes that people have a motivational drive to reduce dissonance. They do this by changing their attitudes, beliefs, and actions.[2] Dissonance is also reduced by justifying, blaming, and denying. It is one of the most influential and extensively studied theories in social psychology. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cognitive_dissonance

What is the motivational drive behind conspiracy?  I’d say it is to ask questions, validate truth, challenge the unknown, suspect what is known in order to come to the conclusion that sometimes, Situation Normal is All F‘kd Up- SNAFU. Wired magazine had this to say,

Although we’re all vulnerable to cognitive dissonance – and the paranoid style has always been a loud presence in American politics – we seem to squander ever more time on worthless conversations about Obama’s birth certificate or the spurious link between autism and vaccines. After all, thanks to Google we can find “evidence” in support of practically any belief. If you can imagine the conspiracy theory, there is a website out there ardently promoting it, and a clan of fellow believers who share your peculiar obsession with fluoridated drinking water and the New World Order. http://derrenbrown.co.uk/blog/2010/08/psychology-conspiracy-theories/

I am pretty sure that cognitive dissonance is not paranoia.  It is rather, a justifiable means of exploring what someone else defines as the truth.  To say that it is worthless to seek out the President of the United States birth origin or find a connection with vaccine use and autism, I find rather appalling.  Hardly a waste of time as a U.S. Citizen or for a parent of a child with autism.

Can cognitive dissonance be familial?  I believe so.   Last night our family went for a late night swim under some raindrops.  There was a low ceiling and what was clearly an airplane to the adults, was not so obvious to one of the children who proclaimed, “Look a UFO!”   We’ve talked about the possibility of UFO’s, aliens and the like,  and in doing so I wonder if we did not preclude them to cognitive dissonance- we believe and so do they.

Throw religion into the mix.  We are Catholic, conservative Republicans and so are our children.   A product of upbringing or ?

The grandparents instilled cognitive dissonance and I suspect we are passing it on too.  We justify good, bad, heaven, hell, what is acceptable, what is the norm, what is a conspiracy and what is reality.  Is not uncomfortable by any means to put on the tinfoil hat, unless of course there is a lightening storm.

The idea of “sour grapes” comes from the fable The Fox and the Grapes by Aesop (ca. 620–564 BCE). The fox is unable to reach the grapes, and, experiencing cognitive dissonance, reduces that dissonance by believing the grapes are sour. This example follows a pattern: one desires something, finds it unattainable, and reduces one’s dissonance by criticizing it. Jon Elster calls this pattern “adaptive preference formation.” -wiki

Maybe “adaptive preference formation” is nothing more than the brain justifying what it can’t have or processing what it is that we believe, or want to believe.

I happen to like a good conspiracy.  It helps me stay on my toes, to not take things for granted, to question, to learn, to share insights.  Too not be scared when a UFO lands on my farm!

The question is whether there is a parallel to be made with the individual level, where society would also influence the shape of the phenomenon, so that the interaction is also mutual at the sociological level? For instance, during the 1896-97 airship wave in United States (and Canada), the phenomenon was first described as strange lights in the sky, but it was reported by the press, nationwide, as “airships”. Could the social expectations to see an airship in the sky influenced the phenomenon so that it took an airship shape in the days and months that ensued? http://parasociology.blogspot.com/

Surely someone can come up with a theory for anything, but numerous conspiracy theories have come true.

The JFK assassination plot, aliens crash landing at Roswell, the 9/11 truth movement and charges of government surveillance are all an indelible part of our pop culture landscape and are by and large, total bullshit. So where does your average conspiracy buff go to learn about shadowy plots that aren’t pure tinfoil hattery? Look no further than: http://www.cracked.com/article_15974_7-insane-conspiracies-that-actually-happened.html#ixzz0vqRVK921

Valkyrie and MKULTRA actually did exist, maybe they still do with different players today.

There is no conspiracy behind the fact that you have to, “Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.” –Lucille Ball, actress and comedienne, born today in 1911.

Does cognitive dissonance allow for a conspiracy that it’s okay to love someone else, convinced that they love you back, while you love yourself?

I love it, and a good conspiracy too.

Earthquakes from Haiti, and more recently Chile and Japan and the threats of tsunami that follow, certainly make one realize the fragility of  life. Is there a connection and coincidence between real world practice exercises and real world catastrophe?  

To the rescue…the U.S Government!   

Tsunami Awareness Week, March 21-27, 2010

This week beginning on March 24, 2010 the U.S. National Ocean and Atmospheric Administration, NOAA- and the U.S. National Tsunami Hazard Mitigation Program-NTHMP in conjunction with 28 states and territories, along with three federal branches of government will run Exercise Pacifex 10.  http://wcatwc.arh.noaa.gov/pdf/PACIFEX10HandbookV3.0.pdf  

Aleutian Islands, Alaska, provided by Hugo Ahlenius, UNEP/GRID-Arendal

Exercise Pacifex 10 simulates and earthquake located south of the Alaskan Peninsula which generates a major tsunami. The earthquake occurs in the Aleutian Trench which is a product of the Pacific Plate.  The tsunami warning centers provide warning, watch, advisory information messages in approximately 5-15 minutes after an earthquake.  

The scenario will start with a magnitude 9.0 earthquake located near Alaska’s Shumagin Islands at 55.0N 157.0W. A large tsunami with coastal amplitudes exceeding 3.0 meters in places occurs along the U.S. and Canadian Pacific coasts. The earthquake occurs at 1700 UTC on March 24, 2010. The tsunami inundates large sections of land in the epicentral region and also significantly impacts U.S. and Canadian regions to the south including Hawaii. This is a realistic scenario for a major Alaskan earthquake…” (p. 5)

If any real tsunami threat occurs during the time period of the exercise, the exercise will be terminated.

Also in the region, HAARP and numerous other military installations- say nothing of the under ground missiles found at Poker Flats. https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/01/20/haiti-earthquake-conspiracy-poker-flats/  .

Hazard Triangle, Another Illuminati Symbol?

COINCIDENCE?

A sizable REAL EARTHQUAKE OCCURED IN THE SAME REGION yesterday, March 22, 2010- though smaller quakes are common in the region. http://wcatwc.arh.noaa.gov/events/eventmap.php  

 2010/03/22 10:38:13 (UTC)
Preliminary Magnitude: 5.0
Latitude: 56.387 Longitude: -156.517
Location: 75 miles/121 Km E of Chignik, Alaska
925429  1  

The following statement was actually issued- this not being a drill…  

To: U.S. West Coast, Alaska, and British Columbia coastal regions
From: NOAA/NWS/West Coast and Alaska Tsunami Warning Center
Subject:
issued 03/22/2010 at 2:43AM AKDTTsunami Information Statement   

At 2:38 AM Alaskan Daylight Time on March 22, an earthquake with preliminary magnitude 5.0 occurred 75 miles/121 Km east of Chignik, Alaska .   

The magnitude is such that a tsunami WILL NOT be generated. This will be the only WCATWC message issued for this event.
http://wcatwc.arh.noaa.gov/2010/03/22/925429/01/message925429-01.htm  
Most recent tsunami include:  

• Feb. 27, 2010 — Chile: Map | Event Page
• Jan. 12, 2010 — Haiti: Map | Event Page
• Jan. 3, 2010 — Solomon Islands: Map | Event Page
 

There are more suspicious cases where the government is running emergency drills and hazardous events have occurred.  

SOUTHCOM COINCIDENCE?

  

SOUTHCOM was practicing and running emergency relief drills for a catastrophic event in Haiti the day before the earthquake hit on January 12, 2010. Lest we note again from https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/01/22/haiti-earthquake-conspiracy-southcom-drill-prior-to-quake-reminiscent-of-911/   

 FEMA COINCIDENCE?

FEMA held a tabletop exercise on solar storms hitting the earth just prior to the Haiti Quake.  Reported by NPR http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=124125001#commentBlock on February 26, It looked at,

…what might happen today if the Earth were struck by a solar storm… intended to investigate “what we think could be close to a worst-case scenario,” says Tom Bogdan, who directs the Space Weather Prediction Center in Boulder. The Center is a part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.A massive solar storm could leave millions of people around the world without electricity, running water, or phone service, government officials say.

“It’s important to understand that, along with other types of natural hazards, (solar) storms can cause impacts,” says Craig Fugate, Administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), who also took part in the tabletop exercise.

Both http://www.spaceweather.com and http://wonderfulgalaxy.blogspot.com/ are excellent places to view the sun’s increasing solar cycle in 2010.

NORAD & FEMA COINCIDENCE? 

September 11 Drill

FEMA and NORAD were running exercise drills on September 10, 2001- the day before the attacks of September 11, 2001.       

OPERATION NORTHERN VIGILANCE, BIOWARFARE EXERCISE TRIPOD II, OPERATION VIGILANT GUARDIAN,OPERATION NORTHERN GUARDIAN,  OPERATION VIGILANT WARRIOR are looked in further at http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/september2004/080904wargamescover.htm  

REALITY.

Hawaii was under a tsunami warning after the Chile quake of February 27, 2010 and there is evidence that this system works with sirens blasting by 6 am to warn residents.  Minimal impact was detected.

Does preparedness for catastrophes, coincidentally create them?  Is it a jinx, so to speak?  Sometimes you need to take off the tin foil hat, and hope not. But…

NORTHCOM  http://www.northcom.mil/links.html has a major exercise going on right now.  Via GlobalSecurity, http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/library/news/2010/03/mil-100319-nns04.htm

Navy shore installations and activities in the continental United States, Hawaii and Guam will participate in Exercise Solid Curtain-Citadel Shield ’10 (SC/CS-10), an annual security training exercise coordinated by U.S. Fleet Forces Command (USFF) from March 22-26.

SC/CS-10 will consist of more than 250 individual training events across the country, each designed to test different regional AT/FP operations. Scenarios range from events such as recognizing and countering base surveillance operations, to higher-tempo and active simulated emergencies such as small boat attacks on waterfront bases and cyber attacks on installations.

duck_and_cover

My previous post at https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/04/06/italy-earthquake-epicenter-near-nuclear-physics-lab/ questioned the experiments that occur at The Gran Sasso National Laboratory- home of The National Institute of Physics.  LNGS is located about 120 km from from Rome near the town of L’Aquila inside the Parco Nazionale del Gran Sasso e Monti della Laga– pretty much ground zero for this weeks 6+ earthquake.

Earthquakes by and large, are not that unusual.  It is not everyday that the ground unleashes its fury so close where experiments in nuclear astroparticle physics and nuclear astrophysics occur.  My head tilts a bit.  I put on my tin foil hat to listen my own inner harmonics that make me question the forces of natural and unnatural events.

Projects with some cool names like OPERA, LUNA and UNDERSEIS have been ongoing in the academia of Physics at the Lab. http://www.lngs.infn.it/lngs_infn/index.htm?mainRecord=http://www.lngs.infn.it/lngs_infn/contents/lngs_en/research/experiments_scientific_info/ Searching for scientific truths that could explain matters of the world have a high degree of integrity, but at what cost to society? 

ATLAS is a particle physics experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. “Starting in Spring 2009, the ATLAS detector will search for new discoveries in the head-on collisions of protons of extraordinarily high energy. ATLAS will learn about the basic forces that have shaped our Universe since the beginning of time and that will determine its fate. Among the possible unknowns are the origin of mass, extra dimensions of space, microscopic black holes, and evidence for dark matter candidates in the Universe. ” http://atlas.ch/   Besides the potential benefit to knowledge, what if the outcomes aren’t acceptable to the norms of society.  Say for example, ATLAS proves the origins of the universe, where does this leave God? 

Would some of these experiments be able to predict natural catastrophes like earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and tsunami with complete accuracy?  Disaster Recovery Journal asks,” Is it really possible to save lives and property even with such accurate advance information?  Unfortunately the answer is a big no, ” citing the potential for financial chaos, transport chaos and civil unrest. http://www.drj.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=2335&Itemid=419&ed=48  That gives little comfort to the scenes played out in movie thrillers and in our U.S. schools where we are taught to duck and cover under a desk. 

The Recovery Journal offers this rebuttal for warning, “In all probability, the actual disaster may cause less damage than the havoc created by people’s panic because of advance information [warning].”  http://www.drj.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=2411&Itemid=419&ed=49 Whew, don’t you feel safer?

Russian scientists speculated that a U.S. strike against China was cause of the earthquake that struck Sichuan province in China, believing “it was  ‘exactly timed’ to coincide with the dangerous experiments ongoing at Large Hadron Collider for the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN).” http://www.godlikeproductions.com/forum1/message556660/pg1

Many of LNGS’s and CERN’s experiments could conceivably alter our fragile, terrestrial ecosystem including the experiments of the Radio Frequency (RF) Waveguide Vacuum Valve.  The device enables low-loss RF power transmission in a waveguide across a gap, where a liftable instrument is positioned. http://technologytransfr.web.cern.ch/TechnologyTransfer/en/Technology/VacuumValve.html Could a strong enough wave transmission from CERN to LNGS have caused the earthquake?

The New York Times author, Dennis Overbye  reported that, “Whatever forms of matter and whatever laws and forces held sway Back Then — relics not seen in this part of space since the universe cooled 14 billion years ago — will spring fleetingly to life, over and over again in all their possible variations, as if the universe were enacting its own version of the “Groundhog Day” movie. If all goes well, they will leave their footprints in mountains of hardware and computer memory.”  http://www.nytimes.com/2007/05/15/science/15cern.html?ex=1336881600&en=7825f6702d7071e7&ei=5090&partner=rssuserland&emc=rss

“We are now on the endgame,” said Lyn Evans director of CERN. 

Does the endgame include a reign of manmade catastrophes like this weeks earthquakes?  

Most noble experiements indeed.

Sabotage- [sabuh-tahzh, sab-uhtahzh] http://www.essence.com/news_entertainment/news/articles/alankeyesobama

1. any underhand interference with production, work, etc., in a plant, factory, etc., as by enemy agents during wartime or by employees during a trade dispute.
2. any undermining of a cause.

–verb (used with object)

3. to injure or attack by sabotage.

from http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/Sabotaged

Make no mistake, Obama as President Elect needs to show his authentic, verifiable birth certificate and to not do so is an utterly and complete disgrace and sabotage of our U.S. Constitution.   America herself should be proud to move past racism in electing a black man.  There should be no praise for a man who can not move past the fact that some of those same people who elected him are now questioning his authority and qualifications under Article II, Section I that defines who may hold the office of President. 

No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

What an embarrassment for our country to have let the issue of his citizenship and eligibility as President elect to have gotten this far .  The rest of the world must be snickering albeit silently, that the man they will have to deal with on international matters could be so manipulative to have deceived his own people to achieve his own goals of reform and change.  What other methods of deceit may come from an Obama administration?  

Denying his citizenship to the same people who propped him up is a slap in the face that will leave America stinging for years if we find out he is not a qualified U.S. Citizen.

In an interview with Essence Magazine http://www.essence.com/news_entertainment/news/articles/alankeyesobama former Presidential Candidate Alan Keyes discusses his lawsuit challenging Obama’s citizenship -KEYES: “I think politics is irrelevant to this, actually. I don’t see how it is showing fondness for Barack Obama to let him enter into office with a question that could be raised. He should not have to operate under that burden. I think the officials need to clear the air for his sake. From my point of view, it is a bad idea to have a president of the United States enter office with a cloud hanging over his head, where every time he tries to do something, he would end up frittering away time because of that objection. So let’s get it over with. Let’s resolve it and move forward with a clear an undisturbed mandate for the new president.”

Get it over with and move forward indeed.  Rather than Obama being a stand up guy, he himself has chosen to not show his authentic birth certificate.  In filing similar applications in all 50 states he, Barack Obama on his Rhode Island application states and “declares that he is eligible under the laws and Constitution of The United States to serve in the Office of The President of The United States if elected…”  http://steadyhabits.wordpress.com/2008/11/29/ct-sec-of-state-errs-hawaii-officials-did-not-verify-obama-birthplace/#comment-506 

[…] From Obama own website:
Since Sen. Obama has neither renounced his U.S. citizenship nor
sworn an oath of allegiance to Kenya, his Kenyan citizenship
automatically expired on Aug. 4,1982.”
Question?
How could it expire, if he never had it? [END]  http://wwwwakeupamericans-spree.blogspot.com/2008/11/obama-awol-birth-certificate-update.html 

This week on Dec 5, 2008- the Supreme Court will go into conference on Leo Donofrio vs Nina Mitchell Wells, Secretary of State of New Jersey, docket 08A47.  Donofrio, a retired poker player has put all his chips and gone all in to seek the truth of where Obama’s citizenship originated. I would send you to Donofrio’s website but the original at Word Press crashed and a second mirror site set up last week at www.naturalborncitizen.blogspot.com  reads “This blog is currently under review due to possible Blogger Terms of Service violations.  If you’re a regular reader of this blog and are confident that the content is appropriate, feel free to click “Proceed” to proceed to the blog. We apologize for the inconvenience.  You can see the docket at http://www.filesend.net/download.php?f=6873f11034a973b2eaff4a8fde87408e

I’d say it is an inconvenience indeed when your 1st Amendment rights keep getting slammed.  A universal avoidance of the mainstream media on this issue is suspect but shutting the doors to a simple blog is unequivocally, a loss for free speech.  I’d also say it is more than an inconvenience to have a President Elect Obama refuse to produce his birth certificate.

Shame on Obama and shame on the DNC and the RNC for allowing it to get this far. 

Whomever Obama is, I would add coward to the list.

November 18, 2008 will mark a day in history for President Elect Obama as Martin vs Hawaii faces the courts in an effort to produce Obama’s long sought after birth certificate and not just his COLB- certificate of live birth.

Martin won a victory on a recent Friday afternoon (October 31st) when the State of Hawaii backed his assertion that there was an original, “typewritten, 1961″ birth certificate, called a “Certificate of Live Birth” or “COLB” in Hawaii, that no one has previously seen. Hawaii’i officials retrieved and examined the document after Martin filed a lawsuit seeking access to the historic 1961 original. 

Obama has claimed to have placed the “original” on the Internet, and Factcheck.org has claimed to have seen this document and posted it on the Internet; it may not be true.  Hawaii officials have now refuted Obama’s false assertion. http://www.rightsidenews.com/200811012436/editorial/state-of-hawaii-backs-andy-martin-in-obama-birth-certificate-battle.html

The Honolulu hearing is the first judicial proceeding to consider the birth certificate question in open court.  http://contrariancommentary.blogspot.com/ 

In the meantime catch up with most of the other legal proceedings including Berg vs Obama at https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/tag/berg-vs-obama/ 

Best of luck Mr. Martin and best of luck to America.

The anti-Obama rumor mongering hasn’t seemed to dissipate but is flying along under most peoples radar.  I keep seeing more and more people blogging about Berg v Obama, Martin v Hawaii and Donofrio v Wells with statements like, I didn’t know about this until now, and why isn’t this in the mainstream media?  

The reason is simple – there is no proof to rumors.   Circumstantial evidence does not make it fact although one of my lawyer friends could certainly come up with cases where people have been convicted only on circumstantial evidence.  We have to cite the source in lawsuits and understand the rationale and motives behind those that may seek to discrete Obama.  At the same time, we must acknowledge that it imperative to understand that we all have a vested interest in making sure that we have a President who meets all of the qualifications set forth in the Constitution- including the natural born citizen clause.    

I believe in God even tho I have never seen him/her/it.  I believe Obama’s birth certificate exists, even though I have never seen it either. But God is an entity, Obama a mere mortal, fallible like all men.  His fallibility should not come at the expense of America in not producing a verifiable, vaulted copy of his birth certificate.

The amount of circumstantial evidence has begun to add up and many more “regular” citizens who do not make a habit of wearing tin foil on there head are beginning to look again at Obama’s omissions.  From the popular No Quarter http://www.noquarterusa.net/blog/2008/10/13/updated-a-dangerous-mixture-of-lies-and-omissions-obama-ayers-wright-and-farrakhan/ to a whole list of books available at http://shop.wnd.com/store/subdept.asp?SUBDEPARTMENT_ID=131 we begin to ascertain that it is more than the fringe who have misgivings. 

Reviewing a lot of the rumors that began to surface in August 2008,  is http://pajamasmedia.com/blog/obama-did-obama-actually-register-for-selective-service/ and months later we still have unanswered questions that keep coming up.  A question arose about Obama’s registration with the Selective Service and that he may not have done so as required by law.  As Debbie Schlussel points out, “The official campaign for President may be over. But Barack Obama’s Selective Service registration card and accompanying documents show that questions about him are not only NOT over, but if the signature on the document is in fact his, our next Commander-in-Chief may have committed a federal crime in 2008, well within the statute of limitations on the matter. If it is not his, then it’s proof positive that our next Commander-in-Chief never registered with the Selective Service as required by law.  http://www.debbieschlussel.com/archives/2008/11/exclusive_did_n.html   She refers to a copy of his Registration that seems to have discrepancies.  Obama’s COLB has discrepancies and that leads us to ask for clarification once again from Obama.    

There are 29 subjects of controversy that Obama identifies on his website. http://fightthesmears.com/   TWENTY-NINE times he has felt compelled to address issues like Reverend Wright, William Ayers, Rashid Khalidi, his COLB, and to defend himself.  There is no mention regarding his Selective Service issues. 

Being so entrenched to the road to the White House and secure that all of the smears are false, Obama has apparently decided not to attend his grandmother’s funeral memorial service in Hawaii.  http://theindependentview.com/?p=353  “Hawaii residents are invited to a tribute service tomorrow for Madelyn Payne Dunham, President-elect Barack Obama’s grandmother.  Dunham, 86, died two nights before her grandson became the first African-American and the first Hawaii-born person elected President.” http://www.starbulletin.com/news/20081113_Dunham_service_set_for_tomorrow.html

I find it an odd show of respect for the woman who helped raise him, to not bother with her funeral.  I recall his statements regarding Reverend Wright , “I can no more disown him,” he told an audience in Philadelphia of his former pastor, “than I can my white grandmother — a woman who helped raise me, a woman who sacrificed again and again for me, a woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in this world, but a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed by her on the street, and who on more than one occasion has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe.”  http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20081021/ap_on_el_pr/obama_grandmother

Obama probably doesn’t have a tin foil hat, I don’t and most people do not. People who have and wear tin foil hats may look stupid outside of Halloween, but I doubt they are.  http://tinfoilhats.newsvine.com/ has some interesting insights on recent issues, rumors, and topics in the news. 

Hats off to those seeking truth, justice and liberty for all; even if it is under an Obama administration.
