Your modus is a familiar one for most conspiracy theorists. On the rare occasions when they might be right, they say, "I tolja so", and on the frequent occasions when they are proven wrong, they say "I'm REALLY right; it's just further evidence of a conspiracy that the evidence THEY show says I'm wrong." In other words, if X, I'm right, and if not-X, I'm right, also. Such a mindset perpetuates itself regardless of the merits of its case.
