False Flag Alien Invasion at the 2012 Olympics


By Nick Pope

One of the most bizarre conspiracy theories being discussed at present is the idea that a fake alien attack will be staged at the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

A combination of special effects and holographic technology will apparently be used to create the illusion of an alien invasion. To counter the apparent threat, the powers that be will declare martial law, ushering in a New World Order. Many people believe that 9/11 was a ‘false flag’ attack aimed at taking away freedoms. This “false flag alien invasion” (Google the phrase to see just how widespread the idea has become) is arguably the same principle, but on a bigger scale.

Believers think alien invasion sci-fi movies and documentaries are part of this plan, preparing us psychologically for the idea of an extraterrestrial attack. They cite Ronald Reagan’s 1987 address to the United Nations as a clue, when he said:

“I occasionally think how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world.”

Arguably, this is just a variation on Project Blue Beam, a conspiracy theory, part of which involves using holograms to fake a “Second Coming” and create a new world religion controlled by the ruling elite. Intriguingly, the alien attack is predicted for the Olympic Closing Ceremony on August 12, on the basis that the date has special “occult significance”.

I’m personally skeptical about a false flag alien invasion theory, but it's a failsafe prediction because if it doesn't happen, its supporters will doubtless claim that by disclosing the details, they prematurely exposed and thereby thwarted the New World Order's fiendish plans.
