    ‘Escorted from the grounds’, yeah, right.

    I point out that the only contact anyone has had with her after her ‘firing’ is via the ‘law firm’ Sidley Austin.

    The ‘law firm’ Sidley Austin is well known for working with the World Trade Organization and has been secretly ranked the ‘Global WTO Law Firm of the Year’. They also have been involved in various false flag operations against the US, starting from the assassination of President Lincoln all the way to the WTC ‘attack’. They also have close links to 40% of Supreme Court cases, which, when you think about it, explains a lot. Not a word they say can be trusted.

    But, in reality, no one has actually *seen* here after she was removed from the White House.

    She’s clearly been ‘volunteered’ to set up the hydroponics at the underground FEMA camps.

        My theory is more an addition to a proper conspiracy theory about her firing, instead of a theory itself.

        Please note how stupid this addition is, because she has not, in fact, disappeared from public view, and no one needs to explain where she has gone, because she had gone no where. But we can’t let mere *facts* stand in the way of The TRUTH. And when it becomes clear she’s still around, she’s clearly either a body double or has been brainwashed.Report

    (Guys, all your conspiracy theories *make sense*, in that they would be good reason to fire her if true.

    Conspiracy theories usually don’t make sense with their own internal logic, like how the US government, because it wanted a war with Iraq, faked terrorist attacks using *Saudis*. And entered into an incredibly stupid agreement about the WTC’s *insurance policy* with the owner, because when you’re murdering thousands of people, the thing you really care about is if some guy’s got his insurance payoff. Or how they replaced the plane with holographic missiles, and then kept the real planes in service, because, uh, reasons. (Seriously, Truther conspiracies are completely crackpot.)

    And then they turn into rambling digressions about how all this connects to everything else, via things stated as if they were obviously true, but don’t actually make a lot of sense.

    If you limit yourself to logic that *makes internal sense*, you’re never going to get anywhere with conspiracy theories. Don’t ask yourself ‘why?’, ask yourself ‘If I look at every single little detail, what nonsensical connection can I make to something else? What slightly weird fact exists?’. And then follow that logic *no matter where it leads*. If it doesn’t lead anywhere, make it lead somewhere, or just connect it to the UN.)Report

        No, see, that’s a part of the conspiracy that actually *does* make internal sense. The conspirators wanted the towers to go down, so they put something in the towers to make them burn better. That theory actually has the conspirators doing something to further their presumed goal. It is ‘logical’ in the sense it follows from basic ‘People want A to happen, so they do B, which causes A’.

        You’d be amazed how many Truther conspiracy parts *do not follow basic rules of logic* in this manner. Like the whole ‘replace the airplanes with holographic missiles’ gibberish, which is so stupid it’s hard to explain. Or the ‘And the WTC owner was in on the plot to get the insurance money’. (Because when the US government plots mass murder and treason, of course they’re going to involve some guy in an insurance scam.) Or the ‘The terrorists are still alive and one was just spotted’ nonsense, which means the US government used the actual names of actual real terrorists that it knew were alive…and, incidentally, used them from the wrong country, instead of just *making up* some Iraqis, which would have served the purpose a million times better.

        Conspiracy theorists seize on *every tiny detail* they make into an ‘oddity’, even ones that cannot possible be bent to actually support the theory!

        Like the JFK assassination, for example. I think a reasonable case can be made for the idea that Oswald was working either for the CIA, the KGB, or the Mafia. Any one of those, or a combination, could be true. I don’t know. The KGB had the means, the CIA and Mafia both had motive. And instead all the conspiracies are about people besides Oswald being the shooter, which is almost certainly not true. All these theories are based on, to put it bluntly, nonsensical tiny data points, things like people owning umbrellas or shooters in places there were not shooters.Report

        Anyone who thinks there was any shooter besides Oswald is wrong.

        Or, at least, thinks the shots came from anywhere *except* the book depository. It’s possible the guy shooting *from there* wasn’t Oswald, although I can’t say I’ve ever heard that theory. (Incidentally, they have recently found a video recording from a few minutes earlier that clearly shows the window open and a person wearing a white shirt moving around in it.)

        The ballistics make perfect sense based on the actual seating in the car.

        I once saw a really wacked out theory that claimed there were *six* gunshots, every pair of them perfectly synced. (Or maybe it was nine!) It had based this upon weird shrapnel. While this seems nearly impossible with 1960s tech, even if it was possible, it raises the obvious question of how a sniper would shoot someone if the timing of their shot was remote controlled. But the more obvious question there would be *why*. You don’t need nine bullets to kill one guy.Report

      • Avatar Oscar Gordon says:

        Sorry, one detail missed – the fire from jet fuel would not have been hot enough, so something hotter would have to have been in place in the towers (or, alternatively, the towers were rigged with explosives, or the hotter accelerant was on the plane, not the towers, or…).

        All of which hinges on the primary assumption that the force of impact coupled with a jet fuel fire being fanned by the winds common at that height would not have brought the towers down.

        Conspiracy theorists think Occam’s Razor is for short sighted dupes.Report

    Now Mitt Romney was Obama’s opponent in the 2012 election, and knew he would be running in ’12 by the time Dowling was hired, but that’s just what they want you to think so you won’t really think at all.. You have to dig deeper. What is Romney’s religion? Mormon. And where do Mormons live? Utah. And where does the name Utah originate? From the Apache “yudah,” or high. And who gets high? Stoners.

  13. Avatar Kolohe says:

    The best explanation is that she’s having an affair with the Vice President, but the West Wing already did that one (and Matt Perry is too much of a slob these days to work in the White House)

    So here’s another one –
    Two days (Wednesday, February 11) before Ms. Dowling was let go, the Obama administration sent to Congress its proposal for going to Iraq (again). Ms. Dowling’s husband, Robert Weinhagen, works for the Office of Legislative Council – the people that literally write the laws. So, sometime before the formal release Ms. Dowling obtained a draft copy of the administration’s ISIS plan and forwarded it to her husband for a heads up. Which is unethical and probably illegal.

    But how does a East Wing florist get access to the West Wing office spaces where the work is actually done? That’s where Shawn Usman comes in. Who’s Shawn Usman? He’s the drone pilot who “crashed” his aircraft (while “drunk”) onto the White House lawn in late January – about 2 weeks before Ms. Dowling was let go, for those of you keeping track.

    What else has Mr. Usman been working on? A Mini Time-Cube. The practical application of Gene Ray’s visionary work. Usman’s “drone” was able to generate a Time Square (a clean Time Square, no less) at the equidistant points of the Ellipse, creating 4 simultaneous workdays within the single work day of the White House. Ms. Dowling used this synergy to enter the National Security staff’s office during her workday, but in our perception, nighttime when no one was around.

    But how was Ms. Dowling discovered? Like all good conspiracies stories, it involves the Jews. When Speaker Boehner invited Bibi to speak to Congress the original date was scheduled for Feb 11.

    But time cube technology is still a little squirrelly. Or else Ms. Downing is just educated stupid. But I’m inclined to give her the benefit of the doubt, and it’s just she didn’t realize that, while one of the work days on February 11 was the one in which Obama delivered his ISIS proposal, one of the *other* 4 simultaneous workdays was a day where Bibi *was* giving his speech to Congress. Thus the West Wing staff was split up between a ‘day’ glaring at C-Span, ignoring all Congressional calls, and the other ‘day’, communicating with Congress on something (bombing Iraq) everyone wanted and, in any case, was already happening anyway. Ms. Downing’s erstwhile plan was to replace what she had pilfered while everyone was distracted with talking to congress.

    But instead, with the staff’s attention thus divided due to an artifact of the mini time cube, Ms. Downing’s attempt to replace what she had stole was foiled. She was held over for a day, then escorted out of the building on Friday. Because, obviously it’s better to fire people on a Friday.Report

    HAS OBAMA REDUCED THE WHITE HOUSE TO A DEN OF QUAALUDE SMUGGLERS?
    This one goes to the very top! Our lawless “President” may have made his fatal mistake!!!!

    DATELINE: WASHINGTON! On March 23, 2015, White House Florist Laura Dowling was unceremoniously terminated from her position, where she had previously served to the “pleasure” of First Lady Michele Obama since the Kenyan Couple took up residence in the White House back in 2009 (see our previous reporting in on :America: Occupied,” parts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 14, 15, 18, and 22.) Despite the seeming innocuouity of her position Dowling was escorted out of the White House by Armed Secret Service Agents loyal to the Obamas(!) and her personal belongings rifled through by Lady MacObeth’s Chief of Staff personally. This may turn out to be the leak in the dike which proves the ultimate undoing of the Obama “Administration,” which regular readers here know is an ill-concealed criminal operation in full partnership with the Queen of England. The secrets are hidden in plain sight, for anyone with eyes to see the dots, and intelligence enough to connect them. Dowling, ostensibly part of the East Wing, in fact frequently delivered and set up floral arrangements in a variety of West Wing Offices, including but not limited to IN THE OVAL OFFICE ITSELF. In particular, I refer to the visit of several heads of state of African nations during the 2014 U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit in Washington. During this visit, BHO entertained and had private conversations with King Mswati III of Swaziland, and South African President President Jacob Gedleyihlekisa Zuma, and, of course, Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta. That Obama would meet with the President of his home country is unsurprising and, amazingly, Kenyatta seems to be unimplicated in the drug-smuggling operation revealed by the sudden of the florist. A review of the White House security records reveals that on August 4, less than an hour before King Mswati and President Zuma met with BHO, Dowling delivered three arrangements of flowers to decorate the Oval Office, consisting of alstroemerias, astrids, birds of paradise, and bamboo flowers. The bird of paradise flower is principally ornamented by a long, fleshy, orange petal which is unusually thick and strong and which is dry and free from either pollen or nectar within… the perfect place in which to conceal a small digital audio-recording device. Which is exactly what Dowling had placed inside one of these floral arrangements, at the behest of the DEA, who have long suspected King Mswati of using his small nation’s porous borders, corrupt police, and strategic position landlocked between known international drug portal Mozambique and the thriving trade in illegal methaqualone (known by the brand name “Quaalude” in the United States) which is the drug of choice for South African street gangs as reported by the CIA itself. That methaqualone is manufactured from Afghan opiates smuggled into India and then transmitted for sale into South Africa by way of the Mozambique port of Maputo are facts so well-known to analysts of the international drug trade as to be a commonplace. But that BHO would be so brazen about his own involvement is mind-boggling. What is not known, or at least not well-known, is how the opium gets from Afghanistan to India and how the refined drugs get from India into South Africa, other than somehow through the port of Maputo. As we have discussed in the past, since late 2009, unmarked unmanned aircraft have made numerous unregistered overflights through airspace in Afghanistan and Pakistan, airspace that is ostensibly controlled by the U.S. military and overseas intelligence assets. CIA drone strikes have taken out hundreds of targets in these areas, areas which the locals have complained are not military targets and were not in active military zones. Considerable efforts have been made to conceal the origin and destination of the drone flights, and the identity of the targets of the armed drones that have brought such terrible destruction to the villages of these remote areas. Remote areas where, it turns out, there are plentiful drug shipment corridors, remote areas which plot a rough path from Afghanistan’s southern border into the industrialized areas of India just south of the Kashmir Valley. The pieces of the puzzle fall naturally into place. Drug smugglers, operating under a claim or indeed active enrollment in the CIA, load bulk opium onto the drones. Because they are CIA drones, their flights are not tracked, the drones are not marked, and the destinations are kept classified. But THE DRONES ARE REALLY DRUG MULES flying opium from Afghanistan to a friendly contact in India. The military strikes take out the competition — handily labeled “terrorists” by a secretive White House and rogue elements within the CIA who are in on the take. Once offloaded in India’s northern provinces, the opium is refined into heroin and Quaaludes, and hidden in shipments of “consumer electronics” or “household goods” destined for export to African nations … sent to the port of Maputo in Mozambique. Ever since the U.S. and the UK involved themselves in the resolution of Mozambique’s civil war, they have kept “advisors” in Maputo to “assist” with “peacekeeping.” These taxpayer-funded “advisors” work without portfolio in the capital of this lesser-known nation, openly but out of the view and interest of the media. Our sources in Maputo confirm that these “advisors” are frequently seen near the waterfront and significant transportation venues, but also can go for days on end without appearing anywhere in public. Obviously, these “advisors” oversee the offloading of the smuggled drugs from India and getting them shipped to the next point in the chain of distribution. The evidence obtained by way of White House Florist Dowling’s SECRET BUG will reveal, our sources tell us, that this next point of distribution is within Swaziland and under the PERSONAL CONTROL of the unelected King Mswati. What other reason would BHO have to meet with both Zuma and Mswati at the same time other than to provide his minions direction about the distribution of the illegal drugs? There are few legitimate trade, security, or diplomatic issues involving the U.S. and Swaziland at all, hardly enough to warrant an in-person meeting between the President of the United States and the King of Swaziland. Their reason to meet was not official, it was part of their international drug-smuggling conspiracy: there is no other rational explanation!! It is evident, from the unceremonious, unexplained, and forceful nature of Dowling’s departure that her role as an undercover DEA agent, gathering sub rosa information about the President’s involvement and leadership role within this international drug ring was discovered. Obviously, the mastermind of this shocking abuse and corruption of governmental assets could not tolerate the presence of an informant so close, but they could not arrange for an “accident” to resolve the problem on short enough notice. Thus, her expulsion from the White House before more bugs and monitoring devices could be placed. The only link left in the chain for which there is no direct and irrefutable evidence yet are the connections in Kashmir (see our “Lizard People Drug Lords reports parts 4, 6, 7, 8, 17, and 21 regarding the Queen of England’s connections to the international drug trade, as relevant to the India-Africa connection), but we may be assured given the diligence of the DEA in placing an agent within the White House itself that it will not be long before the “Kashmiri Connection” is made and the entire scheme can be blown wide open. Indictments, seizures, and best of all impeachments will follow soon thereafter. Let us thank God that the DEA has remained uncorrupted in this wide-spread and sinister net of criminal activity, hope and trust that are protecting their agent Dowling from the sort of foul play we’ve come to expect from these low-lifes, and pray that soon the final piece of the puzzle will be revealed and our blessed Country can be restored to the rule of law.

What we really have going on here is the latest WHITEhouse attempt to secretly infiltrate the last holdouts of Christians in the Florist industry, and root out all opposition for the DOLOMITE sisters and the New World Order of Flower Power. This operation will be centered in Portland OR. due to its lack of fluoridation (See, See!!!) For years a subversive trope has circled the globe, that fluoride has been sapping or vital essences, but nothing could be further from the truth. What is truly sapping our essence is Flowers, specifically arranged in the tastefull manner personified by Robert Mapel(!)thorp. Despite his attempts to “whip” us into believing his photography was good for us, those of us with pure hearts could see through his SINsational pictures.
    When Stanley Kubrick attempted to distract us with the obviously false tale of fluoridation sapping our essences, those of us who were not blinded by the “left” knew that Stanley had also been a photographer (in NEW YORK,) and from there the connections just fell into place. Like the lies about the “moon landing,” just too many things here are at play. One is Portland, home of the Mysterious R. (Tod) Kelly. Now, we know he says his middle name is Tod, but that is just to hide his love of WaterSports. The Watersports of de-fluoridation!
    Now, my little SIN Haters, I am sure you are asking “how are florists and fluoridation connected?” As I stated above the need for devilish desperadoes to play with our emotions regarding what is healthy (and obviously PUBLIC HEALTH related) and what is not is firmly rooted in the DEATH PANALS that are now controlling the Government. This FACTION is controlled by the Lawyers Likko and Thompson, whom we all know are trying to get Judgeships on the secret flower courts, to spread their evil flower Death Panel agenda, which is to make all RIGHT thinking men and women to embrace the fiendish acts of the polygamy cult POLYPHONIC SPREE. And as we all know that this cult is led by the defrocked priest Erik Kain, who, as we all know, just assumed the 17th and final seat of the Illuminati.
    Quite obvious really.Report

  18. Ms. Dowling and her husband, who as @kolohe points out above is senior counsel for the House Office of Legislative Counsel, are patriotic American heroes who saved the country from the horror of betraying Likud and, ultimately, turning the reins of our government over to Ayatollah Khamenei.

    Ms. Dowling was supposedly last seen leaving the White House on February 13, but the story of her departure from the White House did not break until March 23, over a month later. March 23, of course, was the same day that another major story involving a leak from the White House broke, namely that the White House had caught Israel spying on its traitorous discussions with Iran and turning the information obtained from the spying over to the White House’s enemies, namely the patriotic Republicans in the House of Representatives.

    The report on the spying pointedly does not disclose how Israel had been getting the information, just as the White House refuses to explain why Ms. Dowling is nowhere to be seen and why there are dead flowers suddenly all over the White House. The White House figured that the sheeple would not connect the dots, but we free thinkers can’t be fooled: Ms. Dowling was “disappeared” after Michelle Obama, in one of her typical fits of rage against one of the lowly Caucasian White House servants, threw a vase, and a previously hidden video camera fell out.

    Further investigation found similar cameras in some of the flower arrangements in the Oval Office, and President Obama ordered the florist immediately arrested by two trusted Secret Service agents, both of whom were no doubt members of the Black Panthers.

    He had her waterboarded with one of the pieces of equipment that were removed from Gitmo to appease the terrorists for whom the President really works, and – since waterboarding is always effective – she was forced to disclose that she and her husband, who works for Congress, were working as spies for the Israelis and conduits between Israel and Congress to defend America against the President and that she had put the cameras in place. She also disclosed that she would turn the video and audio over to Mossad, who would then pick the juicy bits to turn over to Congress through her husband.

    Only after a month of torture was this brave woman released. The Administration’s fear of the conservatives in the House is the only reason they never apprehended her patriotic husband.

    The America-hating liberal media obligingly refused to report on her disappearance at the White House’s demand until she was released and the White House had gotten all of the intelligence it could from her.Report

      -1, can be read to make the Israelis out to be the bad guys, and hence will never catch on on the right. Need Obama to be more obviously evil so the Israelis have a legit reason to spy on him.

      Perhaps the deal he’s negotiating with Iran would turn Iraq and Afghanistan over to Iran?Report

        I remember a HuffPo article from the mid-to-late late aughts about a bust being made for GWB that left the end blank (like George W Bush, 2001- ) and this was indicative of the fact that he would not step down after two terms because Bush.

        @stillwater , it’s real rather than a conspiracy, but look into the Army’s plans to use eminent domain to take large parts of southeastern Colorado to expand the Piñon Canyon Maneuver Site. IIRC, they were talking about an area about the size of Massachusetts…Report

        …? The Army already *has* bases of operations. They are called, let me look up the technical term here… ‘Army bases’.

        Also, and I hate to have to point this out, the military already owns like a *4500* square miles that is only about *500* miles from northern Colorado and southern Wyoming that it completely controls and is utterly classified, aka, Area 51 and the Nevada Test and Training Range it’s a part of. Northern Colorado/southern Wyoming is exactly where they *don’t* need another giant secret base if the point is to control the US population!

        At this rate, the military will soon have more people out there than *actual residents*, and be able to successfully control *the middle of nowhere*.

        Conspiracy theories are so stupid.Report

      • Thing is, the Israelis spying on Obama and turning the info over to Congress actually did happen, and I actually did see articles on the Right yesterday applauding them for what they did while also complaining about Obama’s anger. E.g., http://spectator.org/blog/62162/i-hope-israel-spied-iran-nuclear-talks

        If I had just left it at “this hero was the one who leaked the Iran talks to the Israelis and was discovered in a fit of rage by Michelle Obama,” it totally would be something that could catch on in large segments of the Right. The waterboarding and being released part of it is what gives it away completely. It’d be a lot more plausible if I’d left that part out.Report

    At this point, we probably should try to figure out exactly what specific *type* of conspiracy theory we’re aiming for.

    @aaron-david and @kolohe just did great crazy rant conspiracies, @aaron-david doing the ‘crazy capital letters berating the reader’, and @kolohe going for ‘random irrelevant links’. But the problem is that the ‘crazy rant’ almost never catches on outside of the craz-o-sphere.

    @mark-thompson and @burt-likko , OTOH, just did awesome parodies of political conspiracies. (And @chris , I suspect, just channeled Glenn Beck.) Both of them working off the idea that she was actually a spy.

    I think those sorts of things have a much better chance of actually ‘working’, as in, getting someone to start repeating them.Report

      • Avatar DavidTC says:

        Yeah, it was already pretty hard to read as one paragraph.

        To make the links really work, though, they’d have to be insane places like inforwars and whatnot, not the actual White House or CIA factbook. Although, ugh, who wants to read infowars to find appropriate links?

        Also, it needs more references to blatantly untrue things that (Because they are part of some previous conspiracy theory) are just referenced as if they’re true. Like Obama’s well-documented human smuggling connections.Report

    A good Alex Jones conspiracy would be good here. It would require the following, to be authentic:

    1.) Claiming to have documents obtained through unnamed sources that prove the conspiracy.
    2.) Trying to sell something related to whatever fear the conspiracy is meant to elicit. (E.g., perhaps she was fired because the flowers were all dying because the water she used to water them was from a demonstration of the new water-borne mind control substance, which just happens to kill certain kinds of flowers. Then do a commercial about your brand of water purifying tablets, 100% guaranteed to remove mind-control drugs from water.)
    3.) FEMA!!!!!!!
    4.) Figure out which recent overt government action was meant to distract you from the conspiracy.
    5.) Howl. No, actually howl.Report

    Well, Enquirer style would be a simple claim of an affair with Obama, and a dramatic “She goes or I go!” moment from the First Lady.

    But we all know that’s not true. Obama didn’t seduce her.

    Bill Clinton did. To sandbag Hillary’s chances of becoming President, because he doesn’t want to be the ‘First Man’. So he’s been sneaking into the White House, and banging the help waiting for another blue dress moment.

    But unfortunately Hillary found out before anyone went to the press, and threatened to use network of thugs and killers to “eliminate” the florist unless she resigned (that’s why she won’t release her emails. It’s all in there — the killers, Bill’s hatred of the idea of returning to the White House but not being in charge, the infidelity, EVERYTHING).

    Seriously, do you know how many people have been leaving the White House? Half of them left because they slept with Bill.Report
