Recently American Intelligence Media did a show questioning the legitimacy of these articles, featuring ex(?)-NSA ex(?)-Jesuit Douglas Gabriel, and tech entrepreneur Michael McKibben who claims to have invented a key technology of social media that was stolen by Facebook.
In this video they state that their research team had looked into every aspect of the Highlands Group that was available on the Internet in 2017 but at the time did not find Part 2 of Nafeez’s story. Their insinuation was that this was some sort of conspiracy, a #timephonehack to take credit for their work.
I remember when both articles came out in 2015, and can confirm that their publishing dates were real – if not at the same time, no more than 2 days apart at maximum. The Wayback Machine archived both articles on the same date, June 27 2015; but they were out months before then.
I shared the articles on two of my Facebook groups when they came out:
WikiLeaks also promoted the work at the time:
Here’s somebody else tweeting both stories on Jan 26, 2015:
Bruce Damer went on the Joe Rogan Experience, published Oct 14 2014. I’m not sure if he mentioned the Highlands Group in this interview, but it has certainly been all over his web site for many years. This is a very revealing interview about Burning Man:
American Intelligence Media, aka AIM4truth, published a story about the Highlands Group on Feb 18, 2017:
Historical research is based on things that already happened, so “I reported it first” is a silly game to play in this context. Gabriel and McKibben do themselves and their “conclave” a disservice by not respecting and crediting Nafeez Ahmed’s amazing reporting. If AIM’s researchers really could not find this information when they looked in 2017 – when it is easily available from their own web site – this is a black mark against their team rather than against Dr Ahmed.
Robert David Steele vs Jason Goodman, Patricia Negron and Queen Tut, Eastern District of Virginia (same district as Julian Assange trial)
Aaron Rich vs Ed Butowsky, Matt Couch, District of Columbia (same district as Imran Awan trial)
The main issues at stake in these three cases (DC, VA, NY) are:
can anyone say anything about anyone on the Internet, with no consequence, and no need to substantiate their claims with evidence?
can people with no assets and no job lie to attack the livelihoods of people with jobs, with zero repercussions?
is it OK for government agencies to send LARPers onto YouTube and other social media channels to spread disinformation?
is it OK for government agencies to shut down critical infrastructure like ports using agents provocateur and crowd-sourcing methods like “flash mobs”?
I would say the answer to all those questions is a resounding NO, and that’s why I’m interested in these cases.
Dave Acton is representing himself Pro Se and is presenting a well documented case of law in a strategic manner. Aaron Rich’s attorneys also seem pretty good. Patricia Negron just changed her attorneys.
Jason Goodman claims to be representing himself Pro Se, but he’s very close with Larry Klayman who sued his own mother and is currently suing Robert Mueller for $350 million on behalf of Jerome Corsi. Steele’s lawyer Steven Biss is suing Devin Nunes Cow (an anonymous Twitter account) for $250 million on behalf of Devin Nunes – who is about to receive all the classified docs from #SpyGate.
There’s no word on if any of the defendants of these cases would ever be able to pay such sums, or if the Plaintiffs were really damaged that much by the underlying events.
Defango and Jason Goodman both speak publicly like they are experts in legal matters but don’t ostensibly have attorneys, nor do they give the impression that they actually read the court documents. #ReadTeam
It’s a big story with much to unpack, and every day I don’t publish it there are new developments to the story to be incorporated. There are going to be more parts to this series.
Steele v Goodman, EDVA
The judge ordered a pre-trial conference to see if the parties can reach a settlement. Jason Goodman does not consent:
On July 23 George Webb’s brother served the Court in Virginia with a Praecipe (notice) that he intended to lodge an appeal with the 4th Circuit.
Once again, Defribillator Dave seems to have injected new life into this case. Two days later, the Virginia judge finally made a ruling on Acton’s motion to intervene, denying it with a 24-page memorandum opinion which seems to have been crafted with future appeals in mind.
The Virginia Judge M. Hannah Lauck then sternly rebuked the Plaintiff’s attorney Steven Biss and Defendant Jason Goodman.
Defango seems to think that the Virginia Court ruling that George Webb’s brother is not a party to the Steele vs Goodman lawsuit (which he never was) means his own involvement in these cases is done.
Not so fast: it seems Jason Goodman reported Defango to FBI special agent Brittany Custer in the Southern District of New York, and thanks to the Aaron Rich lawsuit there is an 12-person international team with current and former law enforcement personnel investigating these characters. Inspector Victoria spoke to Pillow Talk:
Defango claims a new date has been set for his deposition in the Aaron Rich lawsuit. I hope these depositions will be available to the public on PACER, or via FOIA.
One of Defango, Lestat and their crew’s associates @ZeladorPetroff , a violent felon facing terrorism and assault charges, just killed a cop in a shootout that left him also dead and his girlfriend wounded. [Update: Defango denies knowing Zelador]
Acton v Goodman, SDNY
George Webb’s brother publicly stated his intentions to appeal to the 2nd Circuit due to the judge’s conflict of interest in the SDNY case.
Dave Acton wrote a letter to Jason Goodman, copied to the court, asking for his agreement that the judge should recuse due to Goodman’s involvement with Israeli intelligence assets collaborators Larry Klayman and Jerome Corsi, who not only are suing Robert Mueller for $350 million, but have created their own Citizens’ Grand Jury to indict him – promoted and seemingly sponsored by the Crowdsource the Truth operation.
The judge in the Acton v Goodman SDNY case Valerie Caproni was appointed by Robert Mueller as General Counsel of the FBI.
… John Conyers, Jr. (D-Mich.)  issued a statement calling upon FBI Director Mueller to take immediate action to punish and fire those in the FBI Office of General Counsel headed by Caproni, who had unlawfully used exigent letters and provided legal advice that was inconsistent with federal law.
House Judiciary Committee Chair John Conyers, Jr. (D-Mich.)’s statement:
“Today’s hearing showed that the FBI broke the law on telephone records privacy and the General Counsel’s Office, headed by Valerie Caproni, sanctioned it and must face consequences…Valerie Caproni…approved [the] continued use of exigent letters and provided legal advice that was inconsistent with federal law…In some cases agents sent letters with information known to be false.”
Since Acton has already filed documents in this case highlighting the relationship between an FBI contract informant and Jason Goodman’s participation in the Clear and Present Danger dirty bomb hoax LARP, this association between the judge and the FBI seems a conflict of interest in itself.
Dave’s latest filings (Documents 80 and 81) propose the disqualification of the judge due to an even deeper conflict of interest.
Ref (a) here is Robert Mueller:
You see, Jason Goodman recently hosted a couple of shows on his Crowdsource the Truth channel with his legal buddy Klayman and mentor Jerome Corsi, “Citizen’s Grand Jury to Indict Robert Mueller”.
Is it a coincidence that this case was reassigned from South Carolina to Mueller’s hand-picked FBI legal head in New York? The optics suggest this judge might have stalled the case, there has been no word from her since her Order To Show Cause with a January 30 deadline.
Acton has notified the Court that he will be filing a Writ of Mandamus to the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, basically asking them to use their power to hurry the judge along.
The case of Aaron Rich vs Ed Butowsky, Matt Couch et al has some significant new developments.
Aaron Rich’s attorneys canceled Defango’s planned deposition. He’s convinced that it is still going to happen at some point in the future, but i’m not so sure [Update: Defango says there’s a new date, but AFAIK didn’t reveal the date or location]. So far Defango has not been named as a Defendant in this case, so there is a good chance that none of the information he provided will be used.
Ed Butowsky has now claimed that Ellen Ratner told him she had met with Julian Assange for 6 hours in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, and Assange explained to her that they had paid Seth Rich and his brother Aaron for the 2016 DNC leaks. Ratner then conveyed that message to Butowksy and asked him to tell it to the family, which he did not do for several months.
This revelation has already led to Brad Bauman dropping a separate lawsuit against Matt Couch. If the claim is true, it seems surprising that Aaron Rich would continue his suit…which makes me think it is not true, and therefore a desperate attempt to muddy the waters and cast blame on others. In a Court of Law, “he said that she said that he said” is called hearsay, and is not admissible as evidence.
Video has surfaced of Ratner herself seeming to confirm some key elements of this story:
Weaving the Wiki Webb
George Webb claims to have known Julian Assange since he was a teenager, and to have been a participant in delivering information to WikiLeaks by giving thumb drives to Michael Ratner, Ellen’s late brother. He did this from the Harvard Club at dinner with Jerome Corsi and Jason Goodman, calling into the Hagmann Report. Sadly Doug Hagmann’s son and #PizzaGate reporter Joe died suddenly just after Isaac Kappy and just before Tracy Twyman.
If Seth Rich leaked DNC emails to Wikileaks, this is bombshell news. Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report only mentioned Seth Rich once, to dismiss his involvement as a “conspiracy theory”:
Beginning in the summer of 2016, Assange and WikiLeaks made a number of statements about Seth Rich, a former DNC staff member who was killed in July 2016. The statements about Rich implied falsely that he had been the source of the stolen DNC emails
Source: Report on the Investigation Into Russian Interference In The 2016 Presidential Election, Special Counsel Robert S MuellerVol I p48
Mueller instead ran with the “muh Russia” narrative cooked up by Robbie Mook and John Podesta, and launched as the Guccifer 2.0 LARP. Mueller’s team insisted that the Russian GRU were behind all the leaks – and this large GRU team were so incompetent that they seem to have gone out of their way to leave clumsy “Russian footprints” all over the documents.
This conspiracy theory has been debunked by experts, including Adam Carter (g-2.space), The Forensicator, and VIPS – intelligence community professionals led by former NSA Technical Director William Binney. The “Russian Troll Farm” IRA was also exposed as a US propaganda operation by The Saker.
Robert Mueller, Jeffrey Epstein, General Flynn and LARPwars
What does Robert Mueller have to do with LARPwars, you ask? Well, funnily enough, all of these cases seem to intersect. The players you may think are just individuals streaming on YouTube in fact interconnect to some of the biggest “active measures” propaganda operations that have been conducted on the American people in history. Seth Rich, Spygate, RussiaGate, Guccifer 2.0, InfoWars, PizzaGate, NXIVM. These are not just some LARPs dreamed up by 4chan trolls for l0lz. These are carefully crafted psychological operations with political objectives, media collusion and substantial (and almost invisible) funding.
We are seeing a proxy civil war in the intelligence community being conducted by YouTubers and social media sock puppets.
Gritz was liaison between FBI, CIA, DIA and other agencies. She is quoted on Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska’s Wikipedia page for an operation she supervised (reporting to Robert Mueller) where Deripaska supposedly spent $20 million of his own money trying to rescue CIA agent tourist Robert Levinson who is imprisoned in Iran. Deripaska is one of the first people Bruce Ohr contacted trying to beef up support for the Steele Dossier; he dismissed their theories as laughable, the FBI ran with it anyway.
This week documents came out confirming Susan Rice’s earlier testimony that Attorney General Loretta Lynch and DNI James Clapper signed intelligence documents approving spying on Trump with the full electronic intercept powers of the NSA, months after he legitimately became President in an election where he won a resounding 304-227 victory.
George Webb has claimed since the launch of his YouTube channel that he was being persecuted by Andrew McCabe, and that as soon as McCabe resigned he would stop. McCabe was fired in March 2018, 26 hours before his formal retirement in a move targeted to deny him his Federal pension. George is still going strong.
George Webb had a falling out with Jenny Moore (Task Force) over her support for General Flynn. She was dead shortly thereafter.
Michael Flynn was business partners with Bijan Kian, an Iranian-American. Flynn, the former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, and Kian were going up against exiled Turk Fethullah Gulen who runs a network of Islamic schools across the US and the world (see: Empire of Deceit). Gulen is a target of the current Turkish regime, accused of attempting a military coup there in 2016. Flynn and Kian were trying to get Gulen extradited from the US back to Turkey. Flynn was allegedly involved in a plan to sell nuclear technology to Saudi Arabia. Bijan Kian brokered a deal between Flynn and Israeli-connected crowdsourced intelligence corporation WikiStrat. This company pitched a social media troll farm operation to influence the election to Donald Trump’s campaign. There is no evidence that the Trump campaign signed up for anything like this, but Hillary Clinton’s campaign admitted they spent millions on David Brock-led cyber trolls to influence the election.
Did some of that Podesta/Brock/Clinton DNC money find its way into the LARPs of George Webb, Defango, Jason Goodman and others in this network?
This week Bijan Kian was found guilty in the Eastern District of Virginia of lobbying on behalf of a foreign government (Turkey) without registration. Tracy Twyman had discovered the presence of an unusually high number of Turks in the campground she believed was stalking and threatening her.
In LARPWars Part One we covered Defango’s information provided in response to a subpoena in the Aaron Rich vs Ed Butowsky/Matt Couch lawsuits. Defango had teamed up with Trevor Fitzgibbon, who was friendly with David Brock up until his falling out with Jesselyn Radack. Radack accused Fitzgibbon of #MeToo harassment and then later retracted all her claims. Defango is thus directly connected to David Brock and also the ultra-liberal thinktank founded by John Podesta, the Centre for American Progress.
Defango “outed” Jesselyn Radack as the source of the DNC WikiLeaks, without providing evidence. He then shrugged his shoulders and said “guess I got the wrong blond chick” when Ed Butowsky made his claim it was Ellen Ratner (a brunette).
Defango and Fitzgibbons were business partners in a firm called Shadowbox with Thomas Schoenberger, who gave an 8-hour deposition for the Aaron Rich lawsuit in the District of Columbia. Thanks to Defango’s efforts, Thomas has now been named as part of Jason Goodman’s Conspiracy Theory defense in the Eastern District of Virginia lawsuit. Jason and Defango have essentially the same narrative, which is that anyone who criticizes them on the Internet must be part of some vast conspiracy against them and should be blocked from their chat and comments and investigated by the FBI. Wizard Defango has somehow hoodwinked Jason Goodman – whom he claims paid Bitcoin to someone to assassinate him – into thinking that the conspiracy Manuel imagines against himself is the same as the conspiracy Jason imagines are criticizing him, and therefore Defango’s enemies are Goodman’s too. Despite the claims of gang-stalking, death threats, even contract hits, Defango was only too happy to tell Goodman he would “say anything” in his case against Dave Acton.
Thomas Schoenberger has been previously involved in classified operations led by Bijan Kian, and claims that General Flynn knows of him from “stuff along time ago”. Thomas has not worked with the Pentagon since 2011. Since then he has been involved with Cicada 3301 which was founded by Linux Debian creator Ian Murdock (died suddenly in 2015 age 42) and Bruce C Clarke Jr, the former Director of the Office of Strategic Research for the CIA (died in 2014 age 88) – the original Q, one could argue. Bruce helped clean up 816 crooked agents within the CIA as part of Admiral Stansfield Turner’s “Halloween Massacre”
Thomas asked me to redact the other names in the email, but provided it as evidence that he was in contact with Kian in 2011.
Neither Pentagon, nor alphabets have a right to psyop the people.
I have no affiliation with any active military operations. I deplore the way the CIA and other alphabets promote war agendas for the wealthy. People connect Bruce and I and try and raise negative shadows without realizing Bruce kicked out and prosecuted hundreds of CIA agents and officers alike.We need to dismantle the CIA and get honest about the foreign actors influencing our Government through honeypots, bribes, extortion, etc. The alphabets run the world. That has to change.
Say what you want about Mr Schoenberger, this is a goal that I agree with and support. What are the goals of the gangs of social media misfits who are constantly fighting to stop him? Whose side are they really on?
Were some of these political operatives trying to infiltrate and disrupt WikiLeaks, the Seth Rich murder investigation, the Awan Brothers spying investigation, the Mueller probe?
Does this go beyond politics, government and the military-industrial complex? Is this about secret societies creating egregores and other social organisms? Works of Pan-ic art?
Are some of these LARPers associated with foreign countries looking to interfere in media and the Internet?
Defango admits to association with shadow brokers and secret societies, wears a Fez, proudly displays a certificate of membership of the Illuminati, claims to be part of a long line of Jesuits going all the way back to Loyola, says that his brother (now in the armed forces) threw a rock on his head as a child and as a result he got genius abilities and his family relocated so that he could enter a military program. He has also provided evidence that he is part of IARPA Project CREATE. He gets endorsed and retweeted by proud Zionists like sexual assault by Mueller hoaxer Jacob Wohl, porn star Mindy Robinson, and Napoleonic Anti-Semitism crusader Gabe Hoffman.
George Webb claims to be a proud Zionist and ally of Mossad – but “old” Mossad, French Mossad. He is seeking “a little of bit of compromise, a little bit of drug trafficking, a little bit of organ harvesting”.
George Webb claims to have many connections in and much knowledge of the intelligence community. I have been in touch with one of his closest sources over the past couple of years, who is indeed part of the intelligence community, inter-generationally. George also claims to be friends with James Alefantis and to have been involved with human trafficking in the Balkans in the 90’s, and that he was personally targeted by FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe after being compromised in BDSM sessions with porn star Janine Lindemulder.
Jack Posobiec admits to being a proud Zionist and former Naval intelligence. Steve Bannon admits the same. Jerome Corsi is part of the B’nai B’rith and has “above Mossad” sources in Israeli intelligence.
Robert David Steele admits to having worked in intelligence for the Marine Corps and the CIA and comes from a diplomatic family; he is critical of the Zionists.
Jason Goodman was called “an unwitting Mossad agent” by George Webb, who also used the same phrase to describe Lee Stranahan. Although Goodman denies ever being “paid” by Mossad, he has promoted hasbara narratives like the attack on the USS Liberty by Israel as being a US operation. His channel has more intelligence community guests than anyone else in the alt-media, and he was CEO of a company that flew reconnaissance drones over nuclear sites in Ukraine in February 2014, right when the Maidan revolution broke out.
Ed Butowsky says he got involved with the Seth Rich case because he was Jewish.
Butowsky is a writer for Breitbart. Andrew Breitbart founded his news business in Israel with Steve Bannon. George Webb has claimed that he was introduced to Jason Goodman by former Breitbart writer Lee Stranahan. Lee Stranahan has come out as “Anti-Q”, just like Defango, Jerome Corsi, Jack Posobiec, Dave Seaman and Alex Jones.
Enthusiastic Russian operative Stranahan has been friends with Jason Goodman for more than 20 years, is a propaganda agent reporter for Sputnik and writes a lot about Ukraine. On a recent Unirock show Stranahan said how much he loves getting pay checks from Russia. Uni’s big laugh, eyes cast down and stroking his chin when he hears that is telling.
After all George Webb and Jason Goodman’s crowdsourced investigations into the Awan brothers spy ring in Congress, multiple YouTube shows daily for years, Awan pled guilty to one count of making a false statement on a home equity loan and was sentenced to time served and three months supervision. You could say “well, it just shows that YouTube journalists can’t affect the justice system”, but in fact that’s not what happened. The way this team interfered with the case had a major and direct impact on the outcome.
Jenny Moore aka Task Force served George Webb’s lawsuit papers to Imran Awan and wound up dead less than 3 weeks later. Quinn Michaels and Jason Goodman did a show talking about adversarial networks where Jason said that Jenny Moore didn’t serve Imran Awan properly and probably wasn’t really dead. Marcus Conte crowdsourced that falsehood by getting the autopsy report, which contained information nobody knew about (a pacemaker) and didn’t have information everybody knew about (titanium rods in her back). We still don’t know who ID’d the body.
George Webb doxxed André Taggart and his wife, who rented a house from Awan and found blackberries and hard drives there.
Perhaps this was a warning to other whistleblowers considering coming forward in this case. Despite that, another one did. Laurel Everly rented a home from Awan and discovered an Internet connection to her property that she didn’t know about and some sort of electronic equipment running in a shed on the property.
Jason Goodman brought evidence to the DC Police that came to him through his crowdsourced investigation method. In my interview with Queen Tut we heard how Jason’s offensive behavior in the Capitol Police station resulted in this evidence being handed over to Awan’s attorneys, not the prosecutors. Here is Imran Awan’s attorney explaining the consequences of how this helped their case directly to Jason Goodman:
George Webb’s brother Dave was in the Air Force, built comms systems for the NSA, and sued the CIA in their biggest ever corruption whistleblower case – and won. He has served his country and community his whole career. He doesn’t want anything to do with any of the other people listed here. If it wasn’t for him their behavior would go unchecked, and probably become worse than it has already been. What’s worse than shutting down a port with a YouTube livestream LARP? Dave has suggested that a Wall Street panic could well be something considered as part of Jason and George’s “man in the street with a crowd” show formats. The value of US equities is around $30 trillion, so a 1% drop would hurt the country by $300 billion; and be worth many time more to someone able to anticipate it using derivatives. Looking at the number of shipping containers going through the Top 20 US ports, the Port of Charleston represents 4.35%. These LARPers have already demonstrated they can move the needle enough to create major chaos. Was Operation “Clear and Present Danger” just a dry run for the real thing?
Guys (and gals, and members of the other 72 genders, whichever pronouns you prefer) – you already dreamed about this place for decades. You threw a party there in 1997. Then in 2016 you hit up the Billionaire Burners in the community and raised $7 million in donos to purchase it. That was more than three years ago! Since then, you’ve repeatedly asked the Burner community to ideate a vision – and proceeded to ignore any and all suggestions.
What sort of dreams are you looking for? Why not take some of that $50 million annual budget and actually make something happen on top of your $7 million real estate investment?
Maybe if you took a leaf out of Monopolys book and offered Free Parking for Art Cars, a community would coalesce out there independently of a massive bureaucracy?
