Fear-mongering rumors of a plan to stage a false flag attack by artificially triggering an eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano appear to have originated on the blog The Common Sense Show.
On April 19, 2016, the blog published a letter it allegedly received from an "anonymous source" that identified as a "geologist and geophysicist."
The anonymous letter writer alleged that a clandestine group, apparently linked to government, was planning to artificially induce an eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano by conducting "fracking-style" activity near the supervolcano.
"We discovered fracking that was going on at the site of one of our investigations [at Yellowstone] in which the quakes in the area were increasing exponentially," the letter read.
"It was our operating hypothesis that the fracking was able to redirect pressure point of any quake or subsequent magma eruption...," the letter continued. "Based on the limited data set available, it looks like the 'frackers' were experimenting... in other words, somebody was trying to assess if they could cause a series of eruptions at Yellowstone."
"In other words, somebody was trying to assess if they could cause a series of eruptions at Yellowstone..."
The anonymous letter writer then alleged that scientific evidence shows that the recent earthquake in Ecuador was not caused naturally but was induced artificially. According to the anonymous writer, Ecuador was used to test a technology that could soon be applied to trigger a catastrophic eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano.
"The quakes in Ecuador are not natural and do not follow expected patterns," the letter said. "Ecuador could be a test for what is coming to Yellowstone. If this technology was directed to the highly volatile Yellowstone region... I can tell you without hesitation that one-third of the country would be completely uninhabitable for years. Tens of millions of people would die."
