On November 7th, his administration gleefully voted at the UN for a renewed effort to pass the ‘Small Arms Treaty.’ But after the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut — and anti-gun hysteria in the national media reaching a fever pitch — there’s no doubt President Obama and his anti-gun pals believe the timing has never been better to ram through the U.N.’s global gun control crown jewel. I don’t know about you, but watching anti-American globalists plot against our Constitution makes me sick.An email from Senator Rand Paul, on behalf of the National Association on Gun Rights • Decrying the Obama administration’s shadowy collaboration with the United Nations, aimed at a constitutional end-around abolishing the Second Amendment via international arms treaty. If you haven’t heard about this, that may be because it’s actually a well-worn and fallacious conspiracy theory, but that didn’t stop Paul from lending his name to this paranoia-fueled fundraising effort from the National Association on Gun Rights. It’s a theory cut from virtually the same intellectual cloth as those UN-centric “Agenda 21” conspiracy theories, propagated by people like Alex Jones — who, as it happens, has landed the Kentucky Senator as an interview guest in the past. This is a major issue facing Paul, should he indulge bigger, national political ambitions — he’s proven extremely willing to court the affections (and in the process endorse the ideas) of people far out on the conspiratorial right-wing. source

j-boner asks: What is the most interesting conspiracy to you?
» We say: Not really into believing conspiracies over here, but we do find the roots of them to be interesting. What makes people to dig into things like Roswell, JFK, the Moon landing or 9/11 and assume that there’s a secondary explanation for what happened? Is it general mistrust of government? Or is it something else? (It’s our Office Hours! Ask us a question or something!)
