The Roswell UFO Incident involved the recovery of materials near Roswell, New Mexico, USA, in July 1947, which have since become the subject of intense speculation, rumor, questioning and research. There are widely divergent views on what actually happened, and passionate debate about what evidence can be believed. The United States military maintains that what was recovered was a top-secret research balloon that had crashed. By the early 1990s, had interviewed several hundred people who had, or claimed to have had, a connection with the events at Roswell in 1947. Additionally, hundreds of documents were obtained via Freedom of Information Act requests, as were some apparently leaked by insiders, such as the disputed “Majestic 12″ documents. Their conclusions were that at least one alien craft had crashed in the Roswell vicinity, that aliens, some possibly still alive, were recovered, and that a massive cover-up of any knowledge of the incident was put in place. Did this really happen? Bloggers…you tell me?
On July 16th, 1969 America blasted Apollo 11 into space. NASA was on the project to beat Russiain the space race, and begin the outside voyage. With Russia already sending Sputnik 1 into space in 1957, the Americans had to compete as the better nation. So, on the eight day voyage of Apollo 11, the astronauts finally touched down on Earth’s moon. While this happened, some people questioned the signs of fraud. Firstly, with the clarity of the video camera, it still did not pick up stars that should’ve been in the background. The cameras could’ve easily picked up the light from these various vessels. Secondly, the American flag is waving aimlessly on the moon. Everyone thought this was spectacular but there is no wind on the moon. To have a noble image is what wanted to be captured, but the waving is definitely not possible on the Moon’s atmosphere. To go on, when the crater crashed down, it did not make a huge crater. Normally, a crash of the magnitude would make a very visible dent. With each footstep by the astronauts, dust particles should be floating around. All of these inconsistencies add up to a potential hoax. Reasons? People argue to beat Soviet Russia in the space race. Others think for a simple distraction from the recently withdraw of the Vietnam War. What do you think?
There has long been suspicion of a government cover-up of information about the assassination. There are also many conspiracy theories regarding the assassination that arose soon after his death and continue to be promoted today. Most put forth a criminal conspiracy involving parties as varied as the CIA, the KGB, the American Mafia, the Israeli government, FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, sitting Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson, Cuban President Fidel Castro, anti Castro Cuban exile groups, the Federal Reserve, or some combination of those entities.
The Government- Potentially feared Kennedy’s motives. With sight to change from the old way, people disliked that. Change equals uncertainty which some confuse with fear.
V.P Lyndon B.Johnson- To become the president of the United States, Kennedy stood in the path. With unknown reasoning why, theorist think only Johnson will ever know.
Fidel Castro- With none attempts to assassinate Fidel Castro; it could’ve been a strike back. Recently having the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Communist down south were enemies to the United States.
Those are few motives that some theorists believe are true. With decades of recovering information from the event, it is believe that now the President of the United States has the final say. Under his word, it will be chosen to release the current information regarding the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
A question that has been asked for nearly a century now regards peak oil. Has it run out? In the 1960’s, M. King Hubbert created a presentation creating Hubbert’s Curve. This model represented when the global oil production would have peeked. Now the information is controversial on how this curve was created, but “what” is a better question. What can happen to the economy with peak oil being reached? Since the supply of oil would decrease with a stationary demand, the prices for oil and gasoline will increase. Conspiracy theorists argue that peak oil hasn’t been reached, but only recorded with means to raise prices. The oil industry has been all about money, but with fake peak oil it’ll be easy to have a constant supply with a high price. There has been increased oil production throughout the world in areas like Saudi Arabia and Russia. The oil industry is breaking records with production but yet we cry peak. An excuse to invade citizen’s lives, oppress alternate sources of energy, and increase prices is the goals to keep the oil industry on top.
