Here at the Conspiracy section of truTV.com, we like to be at the cutting edge of what theories are out there.
One way we do that is with our Tipline, wherein we encourage you, the public, to submit conspiracy theories you think we should investigate. While we aren’t able to follow up on every tip (and where does on start with a theory that says simply “JFK was murdered,” for example?), we do get many interesting ones that we wish we could explore further. These, we feel, are the best of the best.
Although they have been edited for length and content, each tip retains the original intent of the submission from a real reader. As always, keep the suggestions coming, and remember that the only dumb question is the one that isn’t asked.
21. J. Edgar Hoover created a hit squad made up entirely of homosexuals “to assassinate JFK.” “If, after the ‘hit,’ the street clothes were changed to “flamboyant/gayish” attire, would those people have been detained/questioned as any “normal/regular” looking individual on the street that day, or would they have been ignored as “homosexuals” that couldn’t possibly have committed such a horrendous act?”
20. The lottery is rigged. “The jackpots go up and up, with no winners. People get lottery fever. Millions nationwide are willing to wait in a line just like the ones for bread in the former Soviet Union for the pipe dream of striking it rich.”
19. We already have cures for cancer but the government “runs people out of the country” once they know the cure. “I did a year and a half of research myself. Cancer etc can be cured and prevented. It has been proven.”

18. Redheads are the offspring of aliens. “Why do they all look similar??”
17. ”Sono Bono was murdered [on the ski slope] because he was going to run for President.”
16. There is a concentration camp under the Denver International Airport. It has an 8 level underground military base, a gas chamber… and it’s rumored that there is genetic experiments taking place. The base at Deluce, New Mexico, meanwhile, houses alien spacecraft and aliens who are conducting genetic expirements on humans and animals. There is a ton of info ! if you look at D.U.M.B.S. on the internet.”
15. Fox News broadcasts invisible signals that affect your sense of smell. “Fox News Chammel — though it might not be the only one — has a peculiar sensory ‘flavor’ to me (affecting my sinuses), which leads me to believe that some parallel, inaudile/invisible signals are being broadcast with the audiovisual that’s consciously perceived by the viewers.” Insert joke about how you’re allergic to Sean Hannity’s tan here. ”We need to know IF Fox News is using mind control, and what specifically its purpose would be.”
14. Obama was groomed to be the first Muslim President by Gaddafi. “[Obama] will do things for the Muslim Brotherhood and since they do not like Israel (Jews) Obama wants to make sure this country falls. This will help Libya.”
13. One reader has suspicions about the Nicole Brown Simpson murder case. Only he doesn’t even mention OJ or evidence from months of trials: “Kato Kaelin is the only one who had the opportunity to act. Nicole’s sister said something about him being involved in drugs. And the cop and limo driver said he was acting odd that day.” Kato Kaelin acting odd? That’s all you’ve got? Well, we aren’t exactly going to indict a guy for acting like a weirdo, otherwise we’d have to round up every nerd alive.
12. There is a conspiracy between Canada, the U.S. and Mexico to become one country. “I heard and see on the internet that this is in the makings is it or not? if so what would happen to the Consitution of Independce?”
What, no more theories about JFK? Oh well, case closed. (UPI/Landov)
11. The number on the back of your social security card is a World Bank account number. At the bank, “there is a form that you can fill out to get that money back from the government, but the story goes if you do that you become marked as a target for death.”
10. Garbage. Where are we putting all our “waist”? “What do they do out their? where are they putting their waist? i hope jesse can get to the bottom of this.”
9. Dentists are putting small microwave-type things in your teeth. “Dentist are putting small mircowave type things in your teeth! This help’s to give you Heart Burn which in turn puts Doctor’s in business and Drug companies selling Heart Burn med’s. NEVER HAVE YOU SEEN THIS ONE COMING.”
8. Strange rain. “i saw a show about a little town of 700 people, Military planes/jets were flying overhead for about a week, then it started raining, but it wasnt rain…… it was clear goo. Tests were done on the goo and it was determend that it had human white blood cells and some kind of animal nucleus in the cells, and almost everyone in the town got ‘Flue like symtoms’, and several pets that came in comtact with it died. it ‘rained’ 6 times.”
7. STDs are a government plot. “Is the government making STA’s or STD’s to kill people to make population numbers smaller and to make money from medicine & condoms?”
6. Damn those Jesuits. “When will you attack the puppet master (The Jesuits). Until then , I smell your fear of Man.”
5. Star wars. “jesse we need you to figure out what is going on in the sky. i swear theres a war out in space. i have a woke up to some pretty werid stuff a night, and i have seen these things flying in the air with no sound. what is going on governor”
4. U.S. government workers are actually shapeshifters. “are their really US officials who are aliens dressed as humans. i mean i have eyewitnessed a news castor blinking very fast then his eyes went completely black then back to normal. so are aliens really walking amongst us now to monitor us”
3. The Anti-Christ is among us, and he is not writing South Park. “The Anti-Christ is setting into motion a world government where everyone must have a chip in their hands. [Law enforcement] will scan you to see if you have the chip, and if you don’t, you will be arrested for going against the government. It is in Revelations that no man will be able to buy or sell without this chip or the mark of the beast.”
2. Microsoft Kinect has fine print saying the company is not responsible for any surveillance done through it by the US government.
