I guess the Franklin "cover up' is still in effect.

When a plaintiff sues a defendant, all the allegations in the suit are presumed to be true should the defendant fail to mount a defense, as King did in this case.
What part of that is unclear to you?

I haven't defended Larry King at all, I've just merely pointed out the errors and incorrect presumptions you're making in your posts.

That said, I will take a second to point out that when it comes to the criminal allegations against Larry King, two grand juries (both Douglas County AND federal) came to the same conclusion; the allegations were a hoax and two of the accusers were charged with perjury. Alisha Owens spent almost 5 years in prison for her false allegations, though I am unsure if Paul Bonacci was convicted and if he served any time for such.

Then feel free to leave and go join a forum where you can talk about conspiracy theories without fear of facts getting in the way.

I have read about the Franklin case, and I think there was something to it. Of course, this is ALL opinion and conjecture because it was never prosecuted.

However, I do want to say that many "conspiracy theories" are based on at least some facts and some have been proven to actually be true, so I think that people who dismiss ALL conspiracy theories as just hogwash are just lazy -- or maybe they just prefer to believe that ALL (or even most) of our leaders are good people and have only the public's best interests in mind. If someone wants to believe that, that is their choice, of course, but I prefer to keep an open mind about most things.

For example, the 9/11 conspiracy -- It is interesting that of those who have actually seen the following 5-hour well-researched and professionally-done documentary (that also, btw, rebuts the Popular Mechanics debunking of 9/11 conspiracy theories), most believe that the government lied about many things regarding 9/11. (Even if you don't actually watch any of it, you will see that there is now 3,000 "likes" vs. 155 dislikes, which is a WAY above average ratio for most conspiracy videos, I think.). And of the 50 questions the writer of the video asks regarding contradictions in the official story, as far as I know, there has never been any kind of official answer or rebuttal; it seems that the government's strategy is that if it just ignores the "nuts" and their questions, they will just go away -- although this certainly hasn't worked regarding the JFK assassination!


Of course, as I said, everyone is entitled to their OPINION.

P.S. Btw, the video does not accuse anyone or any group, specifically, of actually doing or masterminding the crime (although it presents fairly strong circumstantial evidence, I think, that Larry Silverstein might have known about the attacks on the Twin Towers beforehand), but just examines how the facts don't fit the official story.

"hot bed" =/= "happening from time to time"

Btw, the correct spelling is hotbed.

I'd say the two terms are mutually exclusive. An environment or place is either a hotbed (stronghold or breeding ground) of [whatever], or it's a place where [whatever] happens from time to time. Can't really be both!
