You may be familiar with Mike “Health Danger” Adams from his relentless promotion of fake medicines. It’s easy to forget that he is more than just a shill for every form of quackery under the sun: he is also a textbook example of crank magnetism.
Following the warehouse explosion at Tianjin, Health Danger saw fit to demonstrate just how deep he has fallen into the conspiracist cesspool:
BOMBSHELL: China and America already at war: Tianjin explosion carried out by Pentagon space weapon in retaliation for Yuan currency devaluation… Military helicopters now patrolling Beijing
Yup, you got it: the US has perfected a weapon capable of taking out a small target from space, and instead of using it on, oh, I don’t know, ISIS or the Taliban or someone, instead they chose to use it on a random warehouse in China in order to start a war. Because war is the extension of politics by other means, right?
(NaturalNews) EXCLUSIVE: Mainland Chinese dissidents have handed Natural News the following bombshell story.
Yeah, EXCLUSIVE! You won’t read this on CNN or MSNBC. Not even Fox News are brain-dead enough to run with this bullshit.
The Tianjin explosion was waged as an act of “kinetic retaliation” by the Pentagon in response to China’s currency war Yuan devaluation, according to dissident sources from mainland China. The Chinese government has put in place unprecedented secrecy surrounding the mysterious explosion, and aggressive police state tactics are now being invoked to control the flow of information surrounding this event.
There is of course no other possible explanation for this. The lack of any credible information about what happened and why in the hours following the explosion could only be the result of suppression. The fact that a large area was flattened, burned and covered in toxic chemicals can in no way explain the security, lack of full information on cause, or anything else. No sir.
The Chinese government’s official explanation for the explosion, which has now killed 114 people, is a complete whitewash. China is going to declare regional martial law in the next 18 days, Natural News has learned, in order to exercise total control over the movement of people and information. The government has banned reporters from entering the area and has begun arresting bloggers who promote what the government calls “conspiracy theories” regarding the cause of the massive explosion.
You know, I get the feeling that Health Danger is jealous of all the traffic Alex Jones is getting with his Jade Helm bullshit.
Quick clue, Mike: the Chinese government needs no excuse to round up dissident bloggers, they never have. What you’ve done is to leap on scaremongering circulated round an echo chamber of people who are paranoid about the Chinese government, and treated it as fact without ever thinking: wait, how likely is that?
You can believe that Shrub might have declared war on China. That would totally make sense, especially if Japan had started a trade war with Texas. He never was that good at distinguishing different types of abroad. But Obama? Declare war on China?
Both before and after the massive explosion, the Chinese government has been flying “black helicopters” in formation across Beijing. (Update: Previously, this article stated the helicopters began flying after the explosion, but we have been corrected on this point, as helicopters were witnessed in the sky in the days before the explosion as well.) Chinese dissidents took numerous photos of these helicopters and were able to deliver these exclusive pictures to Natural News.
Black. As opposed to, you know, silhouetted against a bright sky, a circumstance in which anything will appear black. Yes, this is just like the time the German government sent up a black Embraer ERJ-195:
The British government, with the economy in shreds, could only afford to send up some black birds:
And the Dutch government mobilised its elite troop of black bicycles:
Chinese dissidents have told Natural News they have reason to believe the attack on Tianjin is a warning shot from the United States, which is terrified that China is on the verge of announcing its own gold-backed currency while declaring a fire sale on U.S. debt holdings.
This is “hard money” conspiracist bollocks, and China can no more afford to go back to the gold standard than can the US. Most people think that a return to the gold standard is unlikely, for any country, because it limits a government’s ability to do a thing that governments love doing – print money. But there’s a crossover between “hard money” nuts and Truthers, and Adams is certainly a Truther.
To be fair, though, I am perfectly happy for Adams to pour out as much of this drivel as he likes. Lots of people believe in alternative health bollocks but are much less likely to trust someone who comes out with frothing-at-the-mouth idiocy like this. And anything that undermines trust in Adams, is good.
