CryptoBeast #22 – Mana the Man of Mystery Part 2, with Special Guest Carl Hassell

In the latest episode of my podcast Carl Hassell joins me to look once more into the Peyote Way Church of God and their enigmatic founder Mana Trujillo.

Part 1 (with Joe Atwill)

Here’s the previous episode – just a day away from 1 year ago. I hope we can get Part 3 out quicker than that.

It is interesting that Carl brought this information about the Peyote Way Church of God being a Mormon splinter group to Jan Irvin several years ago, yet for some reason he didn’t want to cover it. He just took a bunch of Carl’s research and added it to his Brain database without credit. Big ups to Carl for sharing it with us here.

This is an amazing intel drop on what looks very much like yet another MKULTRA drug and mind control cult, wrapped in the guise of New Age religion.


Carl has shared a large amount of information based on years of his own research – images, PDFs, and links. All the content below has been provided by him:

Here are some links to articles from the 60s-to mid 2000s.

1.This first link is titled “Peyote Legal in Colorado”. Describes Mana’s winning possession case.

2. 2 examples of Ashrama Pottery. Ashrama was founded with Bill Haines,the psychedelic yoga master. (Who also helped form the Boo-Hoo church with Art Kleps at Millbrook. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Mana-Pottery-Pitcher-Benson-Arizona-1969-Signed-Sri-Rama-Ashram-/263248174943

3. See above 4 attachments of Mana Pottery from 1946. Even though official P.W. literature/Mana Pottery Company, states the company was started in 1948!! (This is amazing, as P.W. claims Mana was in the Royal Marines & suffered traumatic brain injury, and was blown apart) 

4. This 2014 Village Voice Article has Matthew Kent saying for the first time Mana was part Jewish! & first mention his father was part Mexican!  AND mentions that Mana gave Kent & wife Anne Zaph the designation of “Rabbi”,& “Reverend”, even though they have no affiliation to either religion! https://www.villagevoice.com/2014/01/08/a-remote-arizona-church-offers-followers-peyote-induced-psychedelic-trips/  I include the cut & pastes from article..”As the story goes, Trujillo was born to a Jewish mother of French-American descent and a Mexican-Apache father. Trujillo’s father had come to the United States from Mexico in 1917 and enlisted in the U.S. Army to gain American citizenship.”  “Soon after their first experience with the drug, the two decided to stay and join the church. They were designated by Trujillo as the “Reverend” Zapf and “Rabbi” Kent, although they have no formal affiliations to Christianity and Judaism.”

The above article is well worth reading in whole! Also talks of Leary, Bill Haines, Millbrook.

“First Church Pilgrimage to South Texas to introduce the Texas State government to the Peyote Way Church of God and procure the Holy Sacrament Peyote from a D.E.A. registered Peyote Dealer.
Rev. Trujillo meets with Lt. Governor, Assistant Attorney General, and the F.B.I.”

Also cut/paste from website chronology about cofounders arrested in Texas for possession in Nov.13 1980

November 13, 1980
…”Rev. Anne Zapf, Deaconess Norah Booth, and Rabbi Matthew Kent are pulled over by a law enforcement officer in Richardson, Texas. After asking for Rabbi Kent’s license and registration, the officer asked if the Peyote Way Church of God was a member of the Council of Churches. The officer had noticed a large sign on the side of the pickup truck, which read “Peyote Way Church of God, Texas Pilgrimage, 1980,” which was also painted with stylized Peyote buttons and firebirds. Kent replied no. The officer then asked if Church officers had any Peyote in their possession. Church officers produced their Medicine bags and revealed 12 buttons, the recommended quantity (four buttons each) for Church Clergy when traveling in the Temporal World, “…in the event of imminent martyrdom.” (Bylaws, Annotation One, Sacramental Procedure: Reformed Ritual.) Church officers were immediately placed under arrest and the pickup, full of Mana pottery, was searched and impounded.”

I am sending attachments of 2 official pamphlets from P.W.C.G, You will notice pamphlet 1 is the 33rd anniversary of the church(how masonic!!) & the official church obituary for Mana. Also 2 pages from Mormon Splinter groups page listing P.W. as a recognized sect. And am sending a link from Encyclopedia.com/Drug Related groups listing P.W & The Neo American Church, founded by Art Kleps & psychedelic yoga master Bill Haines. This church was also at Millbrook, & Haines later founded Ashrama Pottery Co. with Mana. https://www.encyclopedia.com/religion/encyclopedias-almanacs-transcripts-and-maps/drug-related-groups 

In the P.W listing you will notice that P.W. belongs to The United Order, started by Mormon Joseph Smith. 

Also included are links to 2 examples of Ash Rama pottery. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Mana-Pottery-Pitcher-Benson-Arizona-1969-Signed-Sri-Rama-Ashram-/263248174943

https://www.ebay.com/itm/RARE-VINTAGE-MANA-POTTERY-PENDANT-PEYOTE-WAY-ARIZONA-APACHE-TRIBAL-DESIGN/323604273440?hash=item4b58515920:g:q1sAAOSwo4pYR63a:rk:54:pf:0

And a PDF attachment of the Ariz.Daily Star from March 29, 1970, the article talks about Bill Haines w/picture,& Mana.

This page from Annie’s blog from 2018 states P.W.C.G conducted 240 “spirit walks” in 2017,@ $300.00 per walk,this comes out to $72.000! She also states that Mana started a Tucson chapter of the Ching-A-Ling Nomads M.C. Their headquarters are in NYC. So we see Mana has been involved with bikers since the 50’s, as stated in his 1955 book, and the 2005 book titled “The Original Wild Ones” by Bill Hayes. And also a mention of the Ching-A-Lings & Mana in the 2017 book “True Stories” by Garrick Beck. Attachments will show the pages from 1955’s  “I love you…” by Trujillo, “Wild One’s”, and “True Stories” 

https://anniesblog2015.wordpress.com/2018/01/25/membership-renewal-and-fundraising-letter/  

here are excerpts from Az. Daily Star, Aug.8 1982,where a reporter describes letters from Nixon & Goldwater thanking Mana for art pieces.

I include a page from the 1955 book saying Trujillo was born in Pennsylvania from a Roman Catholic mom. And a 1960 article from The Az. Daily Star saying he was born on the San Carlos reservation, and now known only as Mana. Article also mentions his studio at the Will Rogers Jr. Territory House in Tubac, Az. 

Newspaper reports on the NRP, newspaper reports on announcement of “I love you,I hate you, My 6 weeks of free love with Pat Ward.”

Playa Art Before Burning Man

Thank to Burner Dispatch for bringing this to my attention. California Sunday has some “never seen before” photos by Richard Misrach – “one of the most influential photographers of his generation” – of early Burning Man and the art events that were happening in the Black Rock Desert even before Burning Man.

Look familiar?

Croquet X Machina was featured in Sports Illustrated in 1988.

https://www.si.com/vault/1988/04/11/117465/wicked-wickets-out-west-who-would-believe-croquet-could-be-this-big-in-the-desert

The concept in 1987 was dreamed up as therapy for PTS from an auto accident by Marshall Lyons, an Arborist from San Francisco and his partner John Bogard, a potter from the local Black Rock area. Larry Harvey was a landscape gardener in San Francisco at the time.

Read the full story and see all the photos (including some of early Burning Man events) at California Sunday Magazine.

Desert Siteworks was another one of the crews doing art-themed events out there in the early days.

“It came out of the black water” = “I read it in Sports Illustrated”?

Q Part 3: #DefangoLies Again – Origin Myth #TimePhoneHack

Previous Parts:

#QAnon Part 1 Blind Items Revealed – #All4aLARP?

Q Part 2 – Aleksandr Qgin and the Qouncil on National Policy

LARPers gonna’ LARP. Notorious cyber-troll Manuel Chavez III aka Defango aka Fandango is at it again with a new story of the creation of #QAnon, and more evidence that doesn’t stack up to scrutiny.

@fangcrypto is his new Twitter sock puppet account, after his last two got suspended – was it for doxxing, bullying, threatening, hate speech, harassment, or misleading and deceptive conduct this time? Or was it for attacking @pulte and Dilbert creator @scottadamssays trying to put a stop to #TwitterPhilanthropy?

Who knows, but in the time I’ve followed the guy I’ve seen him using at least half a dozen different sock puppets – that we know about. That’s not against Twitter TOS in itself, so why do they always get suspended?

His latest version of his #QAnon origin myth begins at 45:43:

In this telling of events, an account called Flynn L1v3s (Kevin Flynn) sent him a document called Lookout Mountain Wonderland. The document was created in February 2017, 9 months before the start of #QAnon. Its revision history proves that it has never been edited. It contains a bunch of stuff about “Follow the White Rabbit” and is the origin of Q. Two other documents about Alice in Wonderland and John Podesta also support this.

Some of the stories Defango has told in the past about Q are that he created it, that Cicada 3301 did, that Microchip and JB and him (Turdbo) did (now expanded to include Spicci), and even that Jack Posobiec did.

Lately Lestat has been pushing the narrative “General Flynn is Q”, for some reason this gang seems to be very intent on attacking Flynn. General Flynn’s new attorney Sidney Powell has retweeted Q content previously. She is a Senior Fellow at the London Center, along with the original Able Danger Tony Shaffer. #govLARPer Robyn Gritz claimed to be one of these too, although her name has still not appeared anywhere on their web site.

The links between Q, Posobiec, Alex Jones, Bannon, Cambridge Analytica and the Mercers were explored in Q Part 2.

If Defango’s new story is true, then it means that all his previous stories about Q’s origin were lies. Which they were – but that doesn’t prove the new story is true. In fact, it is yet another LARP, easily debunked prima facie.

Defango shows us the date he received the document – Nov 22 2017, almost a month after the birth of Q. The screen when he is showing us clearly shows the document was edited on that date.

Creation date: Feb 28, 2017
Date edited: Nov 22, 2017

Yet Defango shows us the Version history is greyed out. How can that be if it clearly says it was edited on Nov 22 2017?

It seems there are several different ways to alter the version history of a document shared on a Google drive. The version history of a local copy is not the same as the version history of the original document.

We can further prove that Defango is lying about the document being created before #QAnon. There are a number of links to web sites shown in the document. These prove that its content was created after the launch of Q (which was Oct 28, 2017)

note the URLs in the middle of the screen

The closed caption in the picture above shows him saying “so I followed some of the links” – you can see the date of the post, 22 nov 2017, on the screen behind Defango as he is telling us about the great due diligence he did on his new claim. “8 minutes ago” means it’s likely the author of the post is the one who saved it to the archive.

The content itself has been plagiarized directly from Mind Control Black Assassins, a post written February 26 2012. I have an interview with the site’s author PrinceRay coming up in a CryptoBeast podcast episode soon, I will ask him his thoughts about Q. I’m pretty sure he has nothing whatsoever to do with it.

Source: Mind Control Black Assassins, 2012
“the document dates basically don’t lie” – while he is showing URLs created after the document dates

The Voat link shown on the screen goes to a post about what Q revealed the night before!

Posting date: 20 November 2017
https://voat.co/v/pizzagate/2251391

The Twitter link shown is dated Nov 23-24, 2017.

So it is impossible for what Defango is saying to be true – that the document has not been changed since its creation date. It contains multiple links that did not exist at the creation date.

Defango manages to weave Cicada 3301 back into his narrative, implying that they were the creators of #QAnon and Kevin Flynn was a member of Cicada or an intelligence operative. Note the comment from “Bob Barker”, that Flynn Lives was working with Tracy Beanz and Matt Couch (see LARPWars Part 1 and Part 2 about ShadowBox and Ed Butowsky).

Perhaps Defango is distancing himself from his earlier origin myth stories because his buddies at Maga Coalition have announced their intention to sue Q, after being exposed by the psyop:

Defango shows another document titled Looking Glass.pdf. The date on this one is November 29, 2017, more than a month after Q was launched. He gaslights his audience that this is further “proof” of his latest Q origin story.

Defango says:

“I think I just unloaded something that is gonna really fucking piss off Microchip, and it’s really gonna piss off JB, it’s like I just put my dick in the peanut butter and then the honey and the ants are all around me now”

He claims now that he was set up a patsy, sent to DEFCON to launch a plan that had been developed much earlier: “all they had to do was just fill stuff in because they already had a plan set and they had been planning this shit for months”. This part of it may be true.

For someone who claims to have no ties to the intelligence community, he sure has a lot of ties to the intelligence community:

The Keyhole spy satellite system was acquired by Google and became Google Earth. Its founder John Hanke created Niantic Labs, which launched the Pokemon Go geospatial intelligence project. Defango is referring to a Director of Keyhole, David Lorenzini (spelled incorrectly by Defango), who lives in Scottsdale, Arizona and came into the Gangplank Makerspace where Defango used to hang out. This person would have held the highest level security clearances to have been Director of this project. Maybe even a Q clearance?

The livestream is dated December 15, 2017. Once more, after Q launched.

https://steemit.com/news/@defango/interview-with-bill-maher-of-openbios-david-lornenzini-of-keyhole-google-maps-2018-futures-or-vr-ar-night-gangplank-chandler

The date of this Steemit post is December 16, 2017.

Defango shows another document, also with the versions greyed out and a creation date of Feb 28 2017, which has links to files from the WikiLeaks Vault 7 release of CIA hacking tools.

WikiLeaks had tweeted about this release before that date:

The official release date of their Vault 7 drop was March 7 2017.

Technically it is possible that Wikileaks would have these secret, stolen CIA files just sitting up on their web site for weeks while LARPers like Defango and his mates have access to them and share them on Google drives. However it seems more logical that when Wikileaks publishes something, that is when they put it on their web site – and these links to what they published were added after they published it.

Defango says that “They” (pizzagate researchers?) then planned to “snitch jacket” him as retaliation for blowing the whistle on their Q plans:

He claims that Robert David Steele – another intelligence community member who made multiple appearances on Defango’s channel – was promoting Flynn Lives, but shows a web page where Steele is promoting Timothy Holmseth. Defango then goes on to suggest that Montagraph was correct in saying that Holmseth was really Kevin Flynn.

He then goes on to show evidence completely contradicting this – a Voat post stating that they are two different people.


Conclusion

So what is Defango’s motivation to come out now with a whole different story about #QAnon? Is he trying to make himself out as an innocent patsy, who can turn insider witness to the Maga Coalition lawsuit?

Whatever the reason, the conclusion is obvious: #DefangoLies.


Meanwhile, the Q community is hoping that the rebirth of 8-chan as 8-kun will bring the return of Our Favorite Anon.

Remember that this guy got kicked out of the Army for running a porn site, then moved to the world’s sex trafficking capital the Philippines where he adopted an Asian boy – who is now his chief technical guru “CodeMonkeyZ”.
