Have a Conspiracy Theory? Us Too.

Mattress Firm’s Laundering Scheme

The theory around Mattress Firm’s have been around for quite some time. If you pay attention, you may notice the absurd number of these mattress stores happen to be located in close proximity to each other. Pull up Google Maps if you don’t believe me! There never seems to be many cars outside of these businesses either. Many conspire that the head of this company launders money and needs a menial business and many stores to spread out the flood of cash. The owner of these firms is actually under investigation for other possible crimes. Mattress Firm announced it would close stores that were located close to each other last year in reaction to the theories circulating online.

Princess Diana’s Death

Princess Diana’s death has been swarmed with conspiracies that began just hours after her death. It was deemed unbelievable that such a beloved figure of the public (though not by her family) could be killed by a drunk chauffeur. Dodi Al-Fayed, Diana’s supposed lover, was also killed in this car accident. Dodi’s father, Mohamed Al-Fayed, fully believes that this so-called accident was an assasination by the British government, per request of the Royal Family. Princess Diana was not the typical royal figure and was known to be disliked by members of the royal family for her scandalous outfits and openness towards the public. She is remembered to be a loving mother and inspiring role model.

The Cure for Cancer

Many conspirators believe that the cure for cancer has already been created. Pharmaceutical companies, and possibly  government agencies, have been keeping this a secret due to the large amount of money that radiation and chemotherapy bring in. Similarly, it is believed that many types of medicines or prescription drugs could be cheaper and more easily accessible if it were not for the greedy fingers of the industries that control them. To put it in perspective, the U.S. is the largest medical market in the world making $156 billion in 2017, which is expected to grow to $208 billion by 2023 (SelectUSA.gov).

President Kennedy’s Death

JFK was assassinated in November of 1963. Two bullets hit President Kennedy while in Dallas, TX, riding in an open-topped limo. However, some Americans never truly believed this to be the whole story. According to an ABC News poll done in 2003, 70 percent of people believed there was a bigger plot in Kennedy’s murder. The angle of the bullets is said to not line up with where the shooter was, the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository. Some believe CIA agents murdered him because of the Bay of Pigs Invasion.
