Hashtags: Where Conspiracies Cross

For some time here at Irregular Times, we’ve followed what might delicately be termed “mysteries” and what might more coarsely called “conspiracy theories”: claims that secret evidence (seemingly always about-to-be-revealed) proves the existence of hidden realities or long-smouldering schemes or special dangers that They don’t want you to know about. In our Mysteries thread of […]

Obama Objects To Samsung Using His Picture After Obama Steals Billions Of Pictures From Samsung

Barack Obama is feeling pissy.

It seems that, after Obama agreed to have his picture taken with professional baseball player David Ortiz, Ortiz choose to post that photograph on his Twitter account. Samsung then retweeted that Twitter post, sending the photo to its many followers.

Obama was outraged. He protested. How dare Samsung take a […]

Torture By The USA Went Way Beyond Waterboarding

On Thursday, the Senate Intelligence Committee will be holding a hearing at which it discusses whether information about the American torture programs should be made public – as if that’s a legitimate question. […]

Senator Sanders Notices Big Holes In Obama’s NSA Plan

President Barack Obama made news this week that he would propose a plan to decrease a small fraction of spying against the American people by the National Security Agency. The Obama plan would switch authority for seizing information about Americans’ private communications by telephone, but wouldn’t address the problem of warrantless wiretapping that gathers audio […]

Obama Proposes Keeping Most NSA Spying Against Americans

Obama Plan Would End NSA Bulk Data Collection, reads the headline from the New York Post. That sounds wonderful, doesn’t it?

The sad truth is that the new Obama plan would not end NSA bulk data collection.

The Obama plan would end only a small part of the NSA electronic surveillance deployed against Americans – […]

Barack Obama Less Transparent As President Than George W. Bush

Back in 2008, Barack Obama promised he would be the most transparent President ever.

In 2013, the Obama Administration went opaque:

– Set a new record for delays of requests from journalists for documents – Set a new record for refusals to share information with the American public – Set a new record for the […]

Have You Found your Obamacare Microchip Implant Yet?

A year ago at this time, conservative and libertarian conspiracy websites like News With Views and Before It’s News were publishing articles that boldly made predictions that on March 23 2013, the presidential administration of Barack Obama would start requiring the implantation of microchips into Americans’ forearms:

“Micro Chip Implant Coming March 23, 2013″

“The […]

Yes, Harry, the Audacity has Infected Both Sides

Harry Canyon writes this week to Irregular Times, reacting to an Anti-Republican bumper sticker web page of ours on which we write disparagingly of the GOP:

“Politics is an audacious enterprise. It takes some audacity to claim so strong a grip on the truth as to pass a law stripping away Americans’ freedom, or requiring […]

Constitution Party Presidential Candidate Says Obama Has Begun Zombie Apocalypse

Independent Political Report provides us with the following statement from Laurie Roth, the 2012 presidential candidate of the Constitution Party:

“Obama and the progressives have shredded our national flesh and skin down to the exposed bone. We now look like a staggering Zombie with chunks of tendons hanging everywhere, dripping and splattering blood as we […]

How the US Government Spies on Americans without “Spying on Americans”

How are we to make sense of the news that the US government has been “helping” the UK government collect e-mails, phone records, app records, voice chats and now the naked web photo chats of millions of Americans? How can that possibly be reconciled with President Barack Obama’s bald assertion that “there is no spying […]

NSA Pictures Of You Naked Smash The Metadata Myth. Yahoo!

Apologists for the Obama Administration’s Big Brother electronic spying have spent much of the last year wagging their heads at concerns about privacy, saying that gosh, the age of privacy is just plain over, and we all need to accept that some of our private information will end up in government hands, because we need […]
