Is the enemy of my enemy really my friend of the Left in America? Dr. Steven Mizrach makes an attempt at detangling real conspiracies from false. The groups that have provided some of the hard investigation evidence have other agendas you might not agree with.

Posting a theory does not mean you believe it is true. Caveat lector. This should go without saying, but I guess people believe that I believe everything here is "true". Among certain chic circles, this type of analysis is now called "power-structure" research. - Dr. MizrachNo discussion of this type is complete without mentioning The Bohemian Grove and that link provides some real factual as opposed to conspiracy theory insight into that yearly secret beer blast.
Check into power-structure analysis and local governments being controlled by developers, another name for "land-based growth coalitions."

They have a recent book linking polarized politics with income inequality and immigration.
