The conspiracy theories so far about the shocking Boston Marathon bombings of April 15, 2013 have been rather humdrum. Once upon a time, we got some humdinger theories, such as the classic Debra von Trapp theory on the April 19, 1995 Oklahoma City bombings (plural because there was more than one bomb).
Interviewed by the late Sherman H. Skolnick in 1995, Ms. von Trapp alleged there was a tremendous fight between the Washington government and the Tokyo government, having to do with the Yen/Dollar ratio.
This would be, in other words, the “currency wars” lately again in the news.
Debra von Trapp had allegedly warned the late journalist Sarah McClendon that the U.S. government had been responsible for a sarin gas attack in the Japanese subway system and that there was then an impending attack, a bombing of a U.S. federal building, in retaliation for that.
The Oklahoma attack of April 19, 1995 “was specifically intended by the Japanese government who had, again, paid for and contracted this. It was a ‘message’ back,” charged Ms. von Trapp.
A deadly battle between Japan and the United States over the yen/dollar ratio and a “message” – bombs exploding in Oklahoma City. So why couldn’t the tragic “Beantown” bombings of April 15th have been a “message” from disgruntled Germany, tricked in a huge gold transfer, as speculated upon in the April 15, 2013 Ersjdamoo’s Blog entry, “Gold Plunge and the Boston Marathon Bombing”?
Once the conspiracy theories were at least original. Now, consequent to the “Beantown” bombings, we so far have been getting mostly lame and same speculations. Stephen C. Webster summarizes what he calls “The five weirdest Boston bombing conspiracy theories yet” in an April 16, 2013 “Raw Story” report:
Number 5: “North Korea definitely had something to do with it, maybe”
Number 4: “Family Guy” show seemed to presage the event. This observation is at least original. In the episode “Turban Cowboy,” a bridge is blown up by mistake during the Boston Marathon. (The Sandy Hook incident of December 14, 2012 also seemed to have a presagement in a Batman movie.)
Number 3: Generally a drill by Boston police coinciding with the “Beantown” blasts. Was it “real world” or a drill?
Number 2: The Reverend Pat Robertson supposedly inadvertently blamed Muslims.
Number 1: “Federal” Reserve is involved somehow. This one might have some truth in it, as speculated by me as to the gold plunge and Germany’s revenge.
Suppose, off the coast of Boston, a German Unterseeboot (U-boat) lands some commandoes. The German commandoes all wear uniform caps when they land, so they can’t be hung as spies if caught then. Safely ashore, the commandoes ditch the caps and head to Boston, pretending to be joggers.
“Yah, yah, we are the jogging people. Das ist goot,” they say as, wearing backpacks, they blend inconspicuously with the crowd.
Or how about this version of “The Gray Champion”, summarized in the April 16, 2013 Ersjdamoo’s Blog entry? Bombs explode at the Boston Marathon. Then, from amidst the crowd, a voice cries out, “Oh! Lord of Hosts, provide a Champion for thy people!” As the smoke settles, the graying hair of President Barack Obama is at first seen. It is the new Gray Champion! What will he say? A hush falls over the crowd. The strange man speaks: “We still do not know who did this or why,” he said. “And people shouldn’t jump to conclusions before we have all the facts.”
