Why Conspiracy Theorists Are Always Right

With oil dipping below $50 a barrel today a video is making the rounds among the conspiracy theorists, where a guest on Alex Jones radio show predicted that the price of oil would drop below $50.

Alex Jones "Now, to be clear: They are imploding the price of oil to bankrupt the Arabs and to bankrupt the whole world while the big central banks are energized with cash and liquidity . . . They can then go buy up the entire world economy when it collapses and build that New World Order banking system . . ."

Lindsey Williams: "That is exactly right. Alex, you could not have put it in any better words. . . . They'll own all the banks in America, they'll own all the airlines. They will own basically most of the houses in the United States of America because of the collapse of thereal estate market. And by the time they get through, the elite are basically going to own everything. The people will be slaves in their hands."

OK, well this didn't require a Nostradamus. I wrote about how we were in an asset bubble on my personal blog way back in March, and I don't have any particular insight. What makes this most hilarious though, is that others connected with Alex Jones were predicting that the global elites were doing the exact opposite. From Alex Jones' Prison Planet website:

Goldman Sachs: Bilderberg Target Of $200 Dollar Oil Nears

Price of crude soars precisely as Bilderberg Group planned, but media still claims they have no influence over world affairs

A report by Goldman Sachs Group Inc. forecasts that oil prices will reach $150 to $200 dollars a barrel within 2 years, a figure in line with the ultra-elite Bilderberg's plans to squeeze the middle class and lower the living standards of westerners.

Well, if you make enough predictions, one way or another, you will be right.
