#LARPWars Part 5 – For Whom the Troll Tolls?

Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4 Part 5 Part 6

Lestat has dropped some of his Discord chat logs with Defango, a bombshell move which is sending ripples across the Net.





Perhaps predictably, Defango has claimed credit that he was the one who did this.

Maybe he’s right, but it’s beside the point. Who released the chat logs first does not change the contents of them, that’s the point of this story. Please provide a link to the more comprehensive Discord logs, we will check them out.

Defango has just been named a finalist for 2019 LARPer of the Year. The awards show will be streaming live on Saturday night from around 9pm EST on the Titus Frost channel. He is up against Mike Cernovich, Jerome Corsi and Steven Crowder for the title. A lot of time and audience participation went into determining the Final Four, congratulations to all who got nominated. There sure were some big contenders this year.

Cast your vote before 9pm EST Saturday 21st

The Latest Antics

Earlier this year, Lestat took over the Abel Danger channel.

Now we are seeing some of the behind the scenes machinations around that move.

We see YouTubers colluding with others to troll, money changing hands and specific instructions being given on who to attack and even more significantly, who not to attack – in this case, Defango’s cashed up compatriots MAGA Coalition and An Open Secret.

A YouTuber named FknFreddy is also revealed as a collaborator with this gang. This is ironic because he and his crew frequently rail against “Multi-Channel Networks” on YouTube, yet here they are revealed to be colluding with multiple other channels to co-ordinate attacks on group targets.

We see plans being made to attack rival YouTubers on their birthday – something that happened to me this year from the Sawyers.

Lestat immediately weaponized the Abel Danger channel to attack Thomas Schoenberger, whom he and Defango had both previously worked with in at ShadowBox.

Lestat created logos for Shadow Box and titles for Defango Thomas:


[Update: Jan 8 2020 6:55am]

Lestat disagrees with the above characterization of these events. He is not part of any team and no-one is attacking Thomas Schoenberger. He didn’t take over the Abel Danger channel, he was given it; he didn’t weaponize this channel to attack TS, he hardly spoke about him, there were just a few videos there made by Bobby Sauerwald when he received the 66,000 subscriber channel as a gift; he designed logos for free and was never part of the ShadowBox organization. #YMMV.

Abel Danger was founded by David Squawkins and Field McConnell. They split and Squawkins ended up in partnership with Jason Goodman, Field ended up in jail, and Lestat ended up taking over the 66,000 subscriber YouTube channel Abel Danger – already down to 58,000 subs.

Field McConnell from Abel Danger has teamed up with Timothy Charles Holmseth, who has been publicly praised by Robert David Steele. See Tracking the Leopard Meroz’s great article on these characters:

Agent19 just did an excellent (and very disturbing) video on these men and their “Children’s Crusade”:

Holmseth, Steele, Defango, David Seaman and Devin Nunes have all been represented by attorney Steven Biss. Jason Goodman recently accused Biss and his wife Tanya Cornwell of all kinds of heinous activity in his lawsuit with Robert David Steele in the Eastern District of Virginia.

Here is a copy/paste of their Discord chat logs. Emphasis ours. At the end of the chat we will offer analysis and share some other information that has come to light as a result of this drop.

#cicada3301#QAnon#hoggbelly#defango It´s not very smart to say you pay me to stop me from going after you, Why would you need to do that in the first place…


Lestat (@Tafoyovsky

)Thomas Injected the idea of me getting payed by defango, and Defango pushed the same narrative? Also instead of debunking what ever I’m showing just to confrim it, You never payed me Anthony did. you just help turn etherium to $

Pièce de Résistance

“Anthony” is believed to be Anthony Khamsei, CEO of Resistance. He’s a cyber-security expert running a company specializing in “complex online threats” – a Swedish version of ShadowBox? Mr Khamsei is one of those guys who’ll happily tell you how humble he is on his personal bio then brag about his MENSA membership:

Source: Publishizer

You will see from the Discord log that Defango was asking Lestat to target troll attacks on Ian Balina, an ICO influencer. This was a business relationship of Anthony’s that went sour:

Source: Medium

Note the irony of the last statement – to prevent toxic, shameless characters from giving blockchain a bad name, his plan is to hire said characters and employ them in said actions.

No-one in his team would ever manipulate social media in such a way. They’re not here to create ‘fake news’. Just troll videos:

And The Rest…

Others have come forward to respond to the Lestat-Defango Discordian drop with further evidence of their own (some of it comes from earlier times and may have been posted before):

This screenshot was before Lestat took over the Abel Danger YouTube channel. The “huge responsibility” Lestat is referring to is the group’s mission to attack Thomas Schoenberger.

Note “Negative SEO”

We hope that others will be inspired to come forward with their own screenshots, chat logs, and other evidence of what has really been going on with these LARPwars.

Sounds like there may be even more to come, tune in to SDNY.org for updates

CNP vs CFR: We’ve Read the Documents

Enjoyed this chat last night with John Brisson of We’ve Read the Documents. He doesn’t like Trump quite as much as myself, but we managed to find a lot of common ground anyway. John asked me to clarify my position on Michael Aquino and the Presidio daycare center child abuse scandal.

The CNP (Nationalists, Trump/Mercers/Bannon/Alex Jones) vs the CFR (Globalists, Epstein/Rockefellers/Clintons) is an interesting lens to view current events through.

An Open Secret Response (VIDEO)

An Open Secret have blocked me, yet somehow think the best way to ask me questions is via their 50,000 follower Twitter channel.

I will respond here so that my answers are all on the public record.

Mr Hoffman, we both live in free countries. I can post whatever videos I like to Twitter, as can you. If you don’t think something should be on YouTube or Twitter, complain to them, not me. Both platforms have built-in mechanisms for doing this.

This particular video “Isaac Kappy’s Real Deadmans Switch” by Zack Quaid relates to the investigation we have been conducting since Isaac Kappy’s sudden death. Please see:

The Mysterious Sudden Death of Isaac Kappy Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4 Part 5 Part 6.

There has been another sudden death recently in the truth community, that of researcher Tracy Twyman. She was in direct communication with Isaac Kappy and had received death threats she had traced to a campground in Arizona only 50 miles from where Isaac Kappy died. See Another #PedoGate Researcher Suddenly Dies – RIP Tracy Twyman , Tracy Twyman Update, and CryptoBeast #21 Tracy Twyman, Kappy, Epstein and LARP Wars with Lift the Veil.

Isaac Kappy called out Jeffrey Epstein in this popular rap video he made about 3 weeks before his death:

Mr Hoffman has vehemently denied any links between Jeffrey Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell and the Israeli Secret Intelligence Services. He attacked the reporting of respected journalist Whitney Webb without pointing to a single specific thing in her Epstein coverage that she got wrong:

See Whitney’s superb reporting at Mint Press News:

Lee Stranahan has also given Mr Hoffman a thorough rebuttal over this issue, which he calls the biggest story in the world right now:

A new book has been released with information from Ari Ben-Menashe who claims to have been Mossad’s handler for Epstein/Maxwell’s operation.

Source: Daily Mail

Mr Hoffman is a known associate of black hat political operative Manuel Chavez III, who provides him with his YouTube channel Il1usiveman to re-broadcast his Periscope videos and as a regular platform to criticize enemies for many hours.

Chavez has claimed to be the creator of the #QAnon psychological operation connected to military intelligence. He said that his purpose in creating it was as a “LARP to trick boomers”, which is a violation of Arizona state cybercrime law. We have video of him threatening women and children with violence. He is known to have been involved in so-called “reputation defense” businesses and brags about his track record of doxxing and hacking.

See our LARPWars series:

Part 1 – Proliferation of Lawfare,

Part 2 – Moving the goalposts,

Part 3 – Shadowbox,

Part 4 – Was Fox (in Socks) Doxxed or Did Fox Doxx (in Socks)?

and #QAnon series:

Part 1 Blind Items Revealed – #All4aLARP?,

Part 2 – Aleksander Qgin and the Qouncil for National Policy,

Part 3 Defango Lies Again – Origin Myth #timephonehack

– all of which relate to the activities of Gabe Hoffman’s notorious associate Manuel Chavez III who also goes by the aliases Defango, Il1usiveman, Fandango, LARP Wars, Frank Schwellington, CryptoPolyBiUS, fangcrypto, zer0_skills and more.

Tracy Twyman provided me personally with Dead Mans’ Switch information which I released on my channel when I learned of her death by hanging:

Isaac Kappy also claimed to have a Deadmans Switch. I have released evidence of this on my channel:

The existence of this Deadmans Switch is being disputed on Twitter by shady characters like Brett Trimble and Clownsecsux – both of whom are mentioned in the video “Isaac Kappy’s Real Deadmans Switch” by Quaid.

I am interested in any discussion of the nature of the Dead Mans Switch Isaac had. I have evidence of the existence of electronic information which has not been released to the public yet, so it is true that there is at least one Dead Mans Switch of Isaac Kappy still out there. There is also an alleged Dead Mans Switch unlocked from a puzzle, which I published with disclaimers and redactions here; I do not claim that this is accurate, I don’t have enough information to know that. Other information that was provided at the same time and attributed to a related source has subsequently been confirmed to be true, but that does not in my opinion construe the alleged “Kappy DMS” to be the actual information Isaac wanted released.

The claim made in Zack Quaid’s video is that the people who have this information are all going to step forward to present it publicly on July 4 2020. If Mr Hoffman is not involved in this situation then why would this be of concern to him in any way? I am not involved in the situation (other than investigating subsequent to Mr Kappy’s death) and I am eagerly awaiting this release these releases of information and evidence. The sooner the better!

It is of great significance to the investigation into the circumstances around Isaac Kappy’s death who he trusted and who he didn’t with his information.

I have mentioned the curious coincidence of Isaac Kappy’s “suicide note” which did not appear to be written by him ending in “4th of July. Return of the King. Return of the Light” and another sudden death occurring last summer, that of Mr Hoffman’s neighbor Chris Cline “New King Coal” who died mysteriously on the 4th of July 2019. This post Responding to An Open Secret/Gabe Hoffman False Allegations presents a very large amount of evidence, I am not going to rehash that in every post and Tweet.

On to the next Tweet:

I am not responsible for what someone else says about anyone on the Internet. I have never met Zack Quaid or spoken to him. I do not know if he admitted a public history of being in a psych ward before Gabe Hoffman tweeted to his audience that he suffered from mental illness. Even if this statement is true, I don’t see what Mr Hoffman has to gain by promoting someone else’s suffering – or calling the parents of a 26 year old man. How would Mr Hoffman like it if strangers started calling his parents to complain about his behavior online?

There are many artists throughout history who have been misunderstood. I have friends who have had bad moments and needed psychiatric counseling, stints in rehab facilities, or suffered from post-traumatic stress that could be triggered at different times. I can sympathize with sufferers of mental illness, and I don’t believe that public shame and humiliation is something compassionate that will help them. Different people have different approaches, I guess.

I also would never use mental illness with a stigma that if an artist had suffered from it at some time in their life then one should never promote their work. If anything, the struggles of an artist make me more inclined to help them out by retweeting and sharing their stuff.

I like some of Zack’s videos so I share them. That is how social media works. Just because I share a video, post or tweet doesn’t mean that I endorse everything in it as true, or agree with every word said. The content creator is responsible for the content. Most of my followers I think would prefer Zack’s content over Mr Hoffman’s self-aggrandizing Periscope rants, but everyone has different tastes. That’s what makes the Internet so special.

I am not going to dig up nasty posts about me and share them in an easy list for Mr Hoffman just because he accuses me of lacking evidence. He will have to do that for himself, sorry. I’m sure Mr Hoffman can find plenty of people around him who can point in the right direction – Kelly Giannini, Peter Priest, Manuel Chavez III, Diane Nordstrom, Esteban Trujillo de Gutierrez. Quite an assortment he’s been collecting!

If Mr Hoffman wants to believe I am lying that people make up outrageous stories about me, he is welcome to. He is becoming known for getting things wrong, important things like Tesla “is about to run out of cash and goes [sic] bankrupt”.

If you don’t like my research that’s your prerogative. I’m not pushing it on anybody. I wonder if Mr Hoffman has even studied it? Does he have some research of his own that contradicts any of it? I don’t like his investment advice, but #YMMV.

Black Cube? Isn’t this Mr Hoffman’s web site? He selected the icon in the top left to represent his personal site to the world. Why? What does Gabe Hoffman associate with this symbol?

“Featured for free for a limited time” – I thought Mr Hoffman was a philanthropist? Sounds like giving with strings attached to me. His video has been up on Vimeo for 4 years, 2 months so far.

Why would I promote freedom of speech? Why would I promote journalism winning? Why wouldn’t I promote the agenda of censorship, deplatforming, silencing critics, attacking survivors and whistleblowers?

Is that a serious question? Why? Because it’s the right thing to do. Truth is good. Freedom of speech is good. Citizen journalism is good.


Adam Green describes in this video how he was targeted by Defango and his accomplices who tried to frame him for a crime he didn’t commit then use the allegations in a campaign to crowdstrike him in order to get him deplatformed.
