Weird.

All grand conspiracies require some form of the illuminati but some of your lesser conspiracies can get away without them. A bare bones Kennedy assassination theory could just be the CIA, the Mob, or the KGB but not any more than one of those organizations.

An Illuminati by any other name would smell as weak?

The fun of the Illuminati is that they're behind everything.

EVERYTHING.

The Illuminati benefits from worldwide banking to the tune of trillions of dollars and would not have been hurt as much by the change JFK was making in Federal Reserve Notes to silver certificates as in losses in the gross movement of Mafia money through it's worldwide banking systems, if JFK had effectively ended the Vietnam War.

Although the Rothschild family has a huge stake in worldwide banking they don't have as huge a stake as many other banks and businesses have that benefit directly and indirectly from organized crime.

The point is that though the Illuminati had some interest in stopping JFK from advancing his policies including the ending of the Vietnam War it was not as present, dangerous and direct to their bottom line as it was to the Mafia, that being the de facto incorporated Italian Organized Crime Families.

I mean, if it's on the interwebs it must be true, right?

I got as far as the summary: "Obama and his gang of Marxist usurpers". Saw no reason to continue.

Are you aware that, firstly, Obama isn't the President of America any more and, secondly, that Russia is no longer a communist country?

I really don't think you should be styling yourself as a teacher. Malbec used to do this a lot, and it made him look arrogant and ridiculous.Teaching requires a foundation of knowledge rather than hubris.

George Washington replies to an early conspiracy theorist in 1798, and this somehow proves that the Illuminati survived to the present day.
How? Do you have any evidence of this?
I also note your use of the word "officially". This, among the unhinged fringe, is used to hint that, actually, this didn't happen and there was a cover-up by "the government" (in quotation marks because CT-ists only seem to be aware of one government- the American one).
Is this also your opinion, Bubba? Do you have any evidence that the original Adam Weishaupt Illuminati did not disband, or does this fall into the category of things you hope are true, like paedophile rings in Washington, and child sacrifices by bankers?

Not saying the Illuminati is real, or that they are the masters of time and space, but here's a 1958 episode of the TV western, Trackdown featuring a con man named Trump, who comes to a small Texas town to give him money to build a wall to protect them from the end of the world.

Well played, Sir Patrick Stewart, well played indeed.

Trump is promising to protect the town folk from a meteor using mystical powers.
