Check out Plausible Conspiracy Theories of 2018.

With a new year comes new conspiracy theories that either sound too ridiculous to be true or strangely logical enough to be real. Many of these 2017 conspiracy theories are either updated or continued from the conspiracy theories in 2016, particularly due to Donald Trump winning the presidential election. Along with the ever-popular conspiracy theory of the Illuminati pulling all the strings, this list of possible conspiracies also includes potential plans for the Trump administration. 

This year's conspiracy theories involve secret government workings, acts of terrorism, hoax shootings, and signs leading to the world's end. Even a few celebrities like Kanye West and Jay-Z are mentioned on this list of the latest conspiracy theories. Whether you're a skeptic or a conspiracy theorist, some of these "conspiracies" will seem laughable, impossible, or downright scary.   

Here are the conspiracy theories that are most likely to make the news in 2017. Vote up the ones you think will also be a thing, but be careful - they're watching. Always.

NASA Will Continue To Lie To Us About Space Anomalies

If you've been keeping tabs on NASA since the "moon landing" then you know that there's nothing those egg heads love more than to keep regular, hard working Americans in the dark about what they're up to and what's happening in space that could affect our daily lives. A few days into January 2017 something was picked up on radar that left a hole in our sun, yet NASA has been mum on what it is that ricocheted off of the sun. Could it have been a UFO? A planet? Why won't NASA be honest for once?

The Mainstream Media Is Going To Shut Down Alternate Media

Doesn't this sound like something the LAMEstream media would do? All they want to do is shove their version of the truth down out throats without letting the little guy and his lack of credible sources put his vision out into the world. But how will they discredit alternate media sites? Easy, by creating their own alternate media sites that post false news in order to make the rest of sites look like they're run by crazy people, and possibly even get them sued for libel, thus running them out of business. That idea is just so crazy it just might work.

The US Is Planning On Demonetizing Foreign Governments

The US Is Planning On Demoneti... is listed (or ranked) 4 on the list Conspiracy Theories You Think Will Be A Thing In 2017

Did you know that the US is trying to strip countries of their cash to claim dominance in the world? No? Well, this all began when Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi nullified the two largest bank notes in the country, giving people a grace period to deposit the cash into their bank accounts. Unfortunately half of the country lives without a bank account, which is great for a global conglomeration that wants to control the population by rationing out food and support. Look for demonetization to get hot in second and third world countries in late 2017, hopefully by 2018 we can have the entire world on a system where people have to fight for their food.
