Q Part II – Aleksandr Qgin and the Qouncil for National Policy [UPDATES]

Part I: #QAnon Blind Items Revealed – #All4aLARP?

In this post we will be going through some of the connections around people who have been pushing Q – including a surprising link to Russia. The post is much shorter than Part 1; if there are any updates I will put them at the end.

Q has not posted since the infamous WeAreChange “Defango is Q” interview. Has the operation now officially been shut down? Were Defango & his LARP co-conspirators sent out to “jump on the grenade” and provide a plausibly deniable cover story?

49% is a pretty low score for a YouTube interview. Most people are not buying Defango, Dreamcatcher and Microchip’s claim that they are LARPers and trolls and Q was all a LARP – although I think everyone is pretty much unanimously in agreement that they are LARPers and trolls.

WeAreChange talked Q some more in their video today on their main channel (starts around 53:00)

They say “Discord logs can’t be Photoshopped”, but at the same time they admit they don’t know anything about it. There are plenty of ways to create fake videos. Unirock’s frame-by-frame analysis completely proves these LARPers are LARPing.

WeAreChange’s insistence that they got the story right (with no evidence) even in the face of widespread backlash (with evidence) is indicative of what I believe is really going on here. Certain people have been ordered to shut this thing down, any way they can – reputations, truth and investigative journalism be damned.


Anon vs Anon

Anonymous seem a little pissed that Q is taking over their “Anon” tag. They launched #OpQanon last August to take the rival Anon down just as it was garnering massive mainstream media attention. A month after this operation began Defango, Dreamcatcher, Microchip and Posobiec launched their Discord hoax video. This was claimed as “bombshell proof” that Q was a LARP. It did nothing to slow down the #QAnon movement’s momentum, and Q continued as before.

Google Trends for QAnon

This week (Jan 20 2019) Anonymous (Construct*) released a new Anti-Q video. They have been out to get QAnon since August 2018, when they launched #OpQAnon.

[* I have been contacted by someone claiming to have knowledge of Anonymous who says that the Anonymous Construct video does not come from the #Anonymous collective. Read into that what you will – Ed.]

It is interesting that “Candice Lanier” (not her real name) who wrote the widely-quoted article when OpQanon was launched runs a private intelligence firm and was doxxed by Anonymous for being an informant in 2017.

Yet she is still writing on their behalf a year later. This is the problem with the Anonymous collective, how do you know that it is just innocent socially-minded “white hat” hackers behind it and not Intel Agents and FBI informants and other #govLARPers?

Here’s the latest #AntiQ video:

Rather than being “the nail in the coffin” that it claims, this new video is basically a complete repeat of the Jack Posobiec “muh Discord” story from last September.


Intel Inside

Posobiec admits to a career in Naval Intelligence; so does his fellow Zionist former Trump insider Steve Bannon. More on him later.

Jack & Tanya Posobiec with Breitbart boss Steve Bannon

In June 2017, 4 months before the Q operation kicked off on 4chan, and a month before Defango went to DEFCON 25, Posobiec tweeted from CIA Headquarters:

Posobiec has deleted this tweet, which in itself is very telling. It reveals that he is almost certainly CIA himself, since they are giving him summer reading assignments at headquarters. Also note that he says “campaign reading” . There were no US elections in the summer of 2017, so he is talking about a different sort of campaign. A psychological warfare operation, perhaps? One being planned by anti-Clinton right wing factions of the intelligence community?


Putin’s Brain

The book Posobiec was ordered by the CIA to read is by far-right Russian Aleksandr Dugin, who has been called “Putin’s brain”. This particular book translates in English to
Foundations of Geopolitics. It is the ideological foundation of the new military command of Russia.

Aleksandr Dugin has been called “Putin’s favorite philosopher” and “Putin’s brain”. He is against the globalists and the international elite/New World Order cabal.

Dugin is a big fan of Trump. The feeling appears to be mutual. Vanity Fair asked “Is Trump’s Chaos Tornado A Move From The Kremlin’s Playbook?”

Like Trump, Dugin has been on InfoWars, several times. Jack Posobiec and Mike Cernovich are more like reporters for InfoWars than frequent guests. They often file field reports and conduct interviews. Posobiec is also a host on the right wing One America News Network.

These are the media figures who’ve been speaking about Q, whether good, bad, or both. Alex Jones, Jerome Corsi, Jack Posobiec, Lionel Nation, Jason Bermas – Zionists. Right-wing, pro-Trump, anti-globalist. For some reason they started promoting Q around the same time and then turned on it or walked away from it around the same time. They’ve been trying ever since to shut it down.

Putin’s Puppet Master

If you’ve seen Adam Curtis’ brilliant documentary HyperNormalisation you might be familiar with this “Tornado of Chaos” idea. Dugin and the young Chechyen Vladislav Surkov (“Putin’s Puppet Master”) have come up with an innovative guerilla strategy for information warfare.

Vladislav Surkov came from a theatrical background. He is one of the most important figures of the 21st century, and has been instrumental in Putin’s transformation of Russia over the last 2 decades.

“what he did is take avant garde ideas from the theater and bring them to the heart of politics.

Surkov’s aim was not just to manipulate people but to go deeper; to play with and undermine their very perception of the world, so they’re never sure what is really happening….

Surkov turned Russian politics into a bewildering, constantly changing piece of theater”

Hypernormalisation by Adam Curtis

Are you starting to see some similarities here to the #QAnon operation? It’s a weapon in the alt-right’s arsenal in the Info War. It’s bewildering, it’s constantly changing, it tugs on the heart strings. There’s enough “real” evidence in there to make those who follow it the most believe it could be real…even though Q themself says “Disinfo is necessary”. This is a key point: Q followers will believe Q even though Q says they are sometimes providing deliberately false information.

Q detractors seize on this and say “therefore the whole thing must be untrue”, but I do not think this is correct. Many “Q proofs” have been given now to establish a degree of credibility to a (theoretically) anonymous poster.

This brief excerpt from Hypernormalization conveys the essence of this strategy.

“Political technologists” were the key figures keeping Putin in power. Is that who we are dealing with here? Is this a reasonable term to use to describe Defango, James Brower, Justin McConney?

Watch the whole Hypernomalisation documentary when you get a chance, it’s brilliant and the late, great John Perry Barlow is in it.

“What they had done was turn politics into a strange theater, where no-one knew what was true and what was fake any longer”

This reminds me of the quote from CIA Director William Casey who said:

“We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false”

It’s right there in black and white. Reagan asked Casey “what is your goal for the CIA” and that was his answer. Total disinformation. [Source: Barbara Honegger]

The government runs psychological operations to sow disinformation. The #FakeNews media is part of their transmission system. This is seen as a method of non-violent population control.

The Obama Administration gave us the “Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012”, which made it legal to use every weapon in the military cyber-arsenal on the American people, including social media and “direct or indirect means of communication”. One indirect means of communication is subliminal messaging; who knows what else that insidious term encompasses.


Qaos And The LARP of War

Trump is a master of Sun Tzu’s the Art of War. His own book being called Art of the Deal is an homage to this.

Psyops are all about winning the hearts and minds, without fighting.

The point of the Q operation is to engage the base who were chanting “Lock Her Up” at Trump’s rallies (that is, most Trump supporters) and keep morale up while the Trump team battles the Mueller probe and the Inspector General, DOJ and FBI investigations into the Clintons go on in secret, with multiple grand juries empaneled. There are now more than 74,000 sealed indictments.

Just because a bunch of military intelligence people do a psychological operation, doesn’t mean it’s a military intelligence psychological operation…right? This is a question I’ve asked about Burning Man also.

In this case there appears to be an intersection between the Council for National Policy, John Birch Society, InfoWars, QAnon, Cicada 3301, Defango’s (McConney’s?) troll team, and the US intelligence community. Are Secret Societies involved as well?

Discordians sow chaos. Alex Jones is a Discordian, and linked to the Council on National Policy and the John Birch Society. David Livingstone shared some great information about that in our interview for CryptoBeast 14:


Discordian Disinfo Defango?

Defango has been a political operative for many years. All these people are political operatives, but few of them play both sides.

Source: LinkedIn

Here is Defango a week after the launch of Q saying that “it is another part of the Cicada 3301 group’s plan for the future”. Remember the future…

Defango again, 3 weeks after #QAnon was launched saying that Q was part of Cicada and promoting #FollowTheWhiteRabbit

Why, when Q launched, did Defango devote so much time to attributing it to Cicada 3301 – if all along it was just a LARP cooked up by him, Dreamcatcher and Microchip?

Is this an honest person, dedicated to spreading the truth? Or a chaos magician working in 5D: Doubt, Distrust, Deceit, Discord, Disinformation?


Civil InfoWars

Roger Stone was formerly Jerome Corsi’s friend, now they have had a public falling out over the Mueller probe. Corsi is suing Mueller for $350 million with Larry Klayman, another frequent InfoWars guest.

Roger Stone had NXIVM as one of his lobbying clients. Alex Jones has also been indirectly linked to NXIVM as he has the same lawyer as Holly Bhavani Lev Bronfman, sister of NXIVM bosses Sara and Clare.


Our previous coverage of Nexium as a modern-day MKULTRA drugs/sex/hypnosis cult:

Is NXIVM an MKULTRA Brownstone Operation Part 1

Is NXIVM an MKULTRA Brownstone Operation Part 2

Are Stormy Daniels and Pence’s Doctor Jennifer Pena Branded NXIVM Slaves?

Nexium Patent for Determining Luciferians

NY Attorney General Steps Down, Beat 4 Women, Links to Nexium/Weinstein/Clintons


The NXIVM case is one example of indictments that were formally sealed, which cause bombshells when unsealed. How can a case involving billionaires, politicians, and at least half a dozen stunning Hollywood actresses involved in child sex trafficking get almost no media attention? This case is a great example of why an operation like #QAnon is needed for the White Hats behind Trump to bypass the Deep State controlled Mockingbird media.

Jerome Corsi claims to have been bullied into ratting out Stone out to save himself. Now he’s suing the Special Counsel Robert Mueller for $100 million with an extra $250 million thrown in for punitive damages.

Roger Stone has been tweeting back and forth with the President about this, so he is surely feeling pretty good about the prospects of a presidential “get out of jail free” card in the event he does get convicted of anything.


The Power Behind The Alt-Right

So how could Q gain access to insider information? The common assumption is it’s one person. #AntiQ think this disproves the operation because how could one whistleblower avoid all the intelligence agencies during a massive crackdown against leaking?

I think it is more likely that Q is connected to a group. A powerful political bloc that includes people from the military and intelligence agencies.

Right before the election (October 4, 2016), intelligence operations specialist Dr Steve Pieczenik showed his face, the first time in more than 14 years of being a regular InfoWars contributor. He did so to tell us that Trump was recruited by white hats in military/intelligence.

Dr Pieczenik says that WikiLeaks and Julian Assange were part of their counter-coup. The Special Counsel has tied both Roger Stone and Jerome Corsi to WikiLeaks. InfoWars published How Julian Assange Turned WikiLeaks Into Trump’s Best Friend on October 11, 2016

Alex Jones has previously revealed that he was recruited by this group also.

If this group could recruit Trump and Alex Jones, and Trump is doing Q signs in the air in his rallies and the whole InfoWars team are talking about Q, is it really such a stretch to think this group could be connected to Q?


Qouncil For National Policy

Members of the John Birch Society founded the Council for National Policy, financed primarily by Nelson Bunker Hunt (shortly after he and his brothers failed in their attempt to corner the silver market).

InfoWars Washington DC Bureau Chief Jerome Corsi is a member of the Council for National Policy – along with Steve Bannon, the Mercers, the Kochs, the Princes, the DeVos’s and Kellyanne Conway.

Other names include: Richard Mellon Scaife, Jack Abramoff, Tom Delay, Trent Lott, Jesse Helms, Dr. D. James Kennedy, Dr. James Dobson, Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell, Reverend Moon, Oliver North, Tim and Bev LaHaye (end times novels), Coors family, Du Pont family, Reed Irvine, Grover Norquist, Edward Teller (father of Atomic Bomb).

Erik Prince, founder of mercenary company Blackwater and brother of Trump’s Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, was one of the important early figures in kicking off the #PizzaGate operation that was built on top of the WikiLeaks revelations of John Podesta emails. Jerome Corsi and Roger Stone both deny having access to those emails before they were published; #YMMV.

Prince’s “NYPD is ready to make arrests” message that went out on Steve Bannon and the Mercers’ Breitbart News two days before the election on November 4, 2016 is remarkably similar to the narrative that Q came out with a year later.

Robert Mercer is not your average politically involved billionaire. He came out of the USAF Weapons Laboratory at Kirkland AFB, worked for IBM’s research lab on machine translation and is an expert in artificial intelligence with a $25 billion A.I.-based hedge fund. The Mercers are part owners of Cambridge Analytica, which is a subsidiary of UK Defense Contractor SCL Group. This shadowy organization had connections at the highest levels of the globalist establishment and has been dissolved as a result of their scandalous behavior becoming public – just like the Podesta Group.

Does Q being promoted by people who are members of the Council for National Policy prove they are behind the operation? No, but it certainly would explain how Q has so much access to behind the scenes knowledge.


Who Is Are Luther Blissett?

Is Q a Vladislav Surkov-style theater piece, a Discordian distraction to charge the base up emotionally and build their loyalty to Trump through rage at the elites? Let me finish by taking a look at the Q book itself.

It’s surprising that Defango, Dreamcatcher, and Microchip, who claim to have based their LARP entirely on this book, never mentioned in any of their interviews its unique crowdsourced activist nature (of course, I fully expect Defango to complain that he talked all about the book, on a deleted video on his backup channel).

Like Anonymous later, “Luther Blissett” was an identity adopted collectively by partisans of a certain strand of media activism coming out of Italy in the 1990s. Inheriting the spirit of Situationism and Italian mail art, they were early innovators of what art theory dubs “Tactical Media” or “Culture Jamming”—which is to say that before becoming authors, various members of the Luther Blissett Project engineered complex, multilayered media hoaxes.

Source: ArtNet Is The Qanon Conspiracy The Work of Artist-Activist Pranksters?

The Situationists spawned the Discordians. It’s all about chaos.

Culture Jamming is specifically what Alex Jones says he does. His greatest example of it was probably his 2013 CNN interview with Piers Morgan about gun control.

Although Alex was ridiculed in the mainstream media for this guerilla theater performance, he got worldwide attention and massively boosted his audience of Second Amendment supporters.

The Q book was supposedly written by 4 people, but it emerged from a much bigger Discordian social movement.

From lutherblissett.net

“Luther Blissett” changed their name to “Wu Ming”.

This group sound a lot like Anonymous, and the “pan-ic art” of Project MAYHEM. Chaos theory meets political theater. But does it sound like the #QAnon operation?

There is another Q-related book, “Q Clearance” by Peter Benchley – the author of Jaws. Was the “Q Clearance Patriot” post on 4chan really related to the young Italian activist collective Luther Blissett, or was it an intelligence community insider referencing an older American spy novel from a popular author?


Project MAYHEM – Ordo Ab Chao

Burning Man’s genesis creation myth features many operatives from Project MAYHEM.

Anonymous has been linked to Project MAYHEM 2012 and Project MAYHEM 2020.

Ordo ab chao – order out of chaos – is the motto of Scottish Rite Freemasonry. Putin is rumored to be a Royal Arch Mason. It would not surprise me if Donald Trump is one also.

Merkel is rumored to be Adolf Hitler’s daughter; Hitler himself was rumored to be a bastard son of a Rothschild
Merkel is obviously very fond of this gesture. Although Freemasonry is men-only, there are many co-ed and women-only Lodges
German Chancellor Angela Merkel, UK Prime Minister Theresa May, EU President Jean-Claude Juncker all doing secret society hand signs
Former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown at the G8 summit, 2008

Could Secret Societies conduct psychological operations? Or is that something the military has an exclusive right to?


Their Symbolism Will Be Their Downfall

Most of the people I’ve mentioned in this post, including Trump himself, and Defango during his recent “coming out as Q” interviews, frequently flash the “666” gesture.

Does Q = 666? If the Q operation is targeted against the Luciferian Cabal, why are so many of those connected to it using this gesture?

Do all the people doing the gesture mean it in the Satanic way? Or the Masonic way?

Are these people all Satanists, masquerading as the Christian Right? Or are they members of a secret society, casting Chaos Magick spells on the rest of us?


Further Research


If you found this post interesting please check out these videos from my series with Jan Irvin of Logos Media. The series is about Silicon Valley and the occult side of the tech industry and the military industrial complex. Some of the episodes are specifically about Burning Man; the ones below are more relevant to today’s post. I talk about psyops, memetic warfare, Anonymous, Occupy, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Project MAYHEM, and the links between Silicon Valley and the military/intelligence world.

Start about 1:53:00 of part 7.

Part 7, the conclusion
Part 1, Silicon Valley
Part 2, Psyops and the Presidio

The role of the 7th Psychological Operations group, and its shift from the Presidio in SF to where the Googleplex is today, is a crucial piece of history that deserves more attention. This is explored in Part 2, above.

[Update 22 Jan 2019 4:04pm]

I found this interesting diagram of the “Fake Q” hierarchy. I’m not endorsing this, it is @MotherLibertyNow‘s research and opinion but it seems worthy of consideration.

In this version, Thomas from Cicada 3301 is the ultimate puppetmaster of Q. I don’t believe that’s true, but in his own account, he and his organization were in the pyramid, as was Defango.

They have also placed Q in the hierarchy of parapolitics:


Defango Exposes Q Yet Again

I also came across this, which is a precursor to the “Cicada 3301 Expose” video I embedded in Part I. Every time I hear Defango tell the story it’s different. In this one he is naming a lot of names.

In this video from May 2018 Defango says “I’m not a political operative [but] I proved I can do it better than him“. Him being Thomas from Cicada 3301, who arranged for Robert David Steele to go on Defango’s show. His beef appears to be primarily about money. He also says “I’m not going after the rest of the Q people, I’m only going to Thomas”. Quite a different story from “I invented Q, presented it at DEFCON as a good idea, then 3 of us posted the first 2 or 3 4chan posts as a troll”. YMMV.

“I’ve hacked into Government web sites on livestream, and nobody’s coming after me”

He starts talking about Q at exactly 17:00, which makes me wonder if this is all part of some crazy LARPy Cicada puzzle. He seems to know nothing about Q, other than what Cicada tell him about the operation.


[Update 22/1/2019 5:26pm]

And then we have this guy:

Kidon, Hebrew for “Tip of the Spear”, is the division of Mossad responsible for assassinations.

Is Aaron Ziegler part of the Israeli-based social media InfoWar specialists Psy Group? This is a connection I am still exploring.

[Update 23/1/19 2:39pm]

John B Wells, host of Caravan to Midnight, has released a video saying that #QAnon is real. He interviews an Anon named “D4”, who does not provide any evidence that they have anything to do with Q and does not reveal any inside information. Why are they pushing this now?

David Seaman of Fulcrum News also came out with a Q story this week. He was formerly a big Q promoter, but turned on the movement around the same time as the rest of the InfoWars crowd.

Dust The Plan – How QAnon Put Trump’s Base to Sleep When he Needed Them on Deck


This video from Matthew North is excellent. Is Q being used to set the country up for Martial Law? The US Army pre-dates the Constitution, and military intelligence trumps the alphabet agencies. Trump declared a national emergency on the solstice, December 21 2017.

Matthew North and Adam Green at Know More News have covered PSY Group and the Council for National Policy before (though not in the context of Q, as far as I know).

There has been an interesting series of alt-media attacks on the #QAnon operation over the past few days. All for a LARP? Is this part of the latest Cicada puzzle? Or just the latest evolution of this vast and complex psychological operation?

On one side of the debate, we have Imperator Truth aka Titus Frost saying that “QAnon Is Proven As An Israeli Operation”.

On the other hand, we have two gentiles Defango and James Brower saying “we created Q with Microchip, whom we suspect is Mossad, to troll Christians”.

This post will also introduce a third narrative to the public discourse, that Q began as part of a puzzle that Cicada was creating; and a fourth narrative, my own – based on studying this psyop since its public debut at the end of October 2017.

This post is likely to be updated as more information comes to light.

My intention here is to present the facts and evidence. Based on past behavior, I expect I will be attacked for that by some of the participants. Hacked, doxxed, slandered, ridiculed – the usual “shoot the messenger” stuff. I invite anyone challenged by this post to prove me wrong. Not “say” I’m wrong: provide proof. Q has provided many proofs, hundreds now. Defango, Dreamcatcher and Microchip have provide a 50 second video of a Discord chat, which contains multiple anomalies. This was enough for WeAreChange to give them a platform, and enthusiastic public endorsement from Jason Bermas. While his co-host Luke Rudowski is copping tear gas and filming the EU army take to the streets of Paris, Bermas (connected to Loose Change) has become the latest alt-media personality to “finally debunk Q once and for all and to expose this LARP so it can no longer continue“. For Q followers, we’ve heard this story many times before from both the alt-media and mainstream media. Are these latest “revelations” – actually a rehash of the same information released last September – going to move the needle? Or will Q continue to grow in popularity as millions of fans worldwide of all ages do their own research and realize that the media and government are lying to all of us, all the time. Can this Internet-driven genie ever be put back in the bottle?

Q = Qnit 8200?

The information Titus is working from appears to have been fed to him by the Cicada 3301 crew.

One of the key assumptions being made is that “codemonkeyz.com” owned by Daniel Shir of Israel is the same as @CodeMonkeyZ, aka Ron Watkins the son of 8Chan founder Jim Watkins, who both live in the Philippines. The jury is still out on any connection between the CodeMonkeys, but the 8chan connection is significant.

Source: Splinter News https://splinternews.com/meet-the-man-keeping-8chan-the-worlds-most-vile-websit-1793856249

Army, you say? And definitely not CIA? Hmmm….

Source: https://8ch.net/jim/index.html

Jim took over 8chan from Frederick Brennan, aka “Hot Wheels”, a 4-chan user who founded it.

Jim’s adopted son Ron, aka CodeMonkeyZ is one of the admins for the 8chan QAnon boards, and the site in general.

He denies having anything to do with Q (I feel like I have seen him interviewed on InfoWars or Patriot Soapbox or one of the Q channels, but I haven’t been able to find a link to verify that).

Ron is working on a secure anonymous message board technology, which coincidentally (?) was the main goal of Project MAYHEM 2012’s #TYLER system (for more about that see here). How will they stop the kind of child pornography that is being generated all around them in the Philippines from being disseminated through their “impregnable castle” of anoynmous free speech?

I don’t believe there is any connection between these two codemonkeyz, I contacted War the original tweeter to ask him about it and he said he is still looking for further evidence to confirm it. #YMMV…but as we will see in this post, there sure have been a lot of Zionists involved in this operation.

Rather than being a member of the Zionist faction spearheaded by Jerome Corsi with his “Above Mossad” Israeli intelligence sources, CodeMonkeyZ was called out by them:

Jim Watkins, “online porn pioneer”, is also the owner of conservative news site The Goldwater.

“iWillRedPillU” was connected to The Goldwater and present at the birth of Q, according to Thomas from Cicada (more on them later)

The Q Debut

The #QAnon psyop launched shortly after the Las Vegas Massacre (see my coverage of that here), October 28 2017. Many people think that Q launched by saying “Hillary Clinton has been arrested” but in fact they said there was a motion for her extradition (to another country) and that her passport had been flagged.

Source: https://qanon.pub/

Hillary showed up shortly thereafter with an ankle boot that she wore for 2 months, because she either broke her toe or sprained her ankle (the narrative changed). Likewise Q target John McCain appeared with an ankle boot around the same time. His one shifted legs and then he was announced as dead with great fanfare. 30 days exactly since Q predicted he would be back in the news, saying “every dog has its day”, his death announcement was made on International Dog Day.

McCain’s ankle boot shifted legs
Clinton initially had the same boot as McCain
Broken toes take 4-6 weeks to heal. Clinton was still wearing a boot 2 months after the alleged accident

LARP by Trolls, or Carefully Planned Intelligence Operation?

I shared my opinion on Lift The Veil that Q was a psyop from the Trump team on November 22, 2017 (coincidentally the 54th anniversary of the deaths of John F Kennedy, Aldous Huxley, and CS Lewis).

I have tweeted with the #QAnon hashtag many times since. The people who follow that hashtag are the kind of people I want to interact with – instead of “Orange Man Bad” NPCs, they are patriots who distrust the media and do their own research. I support the Q operation because I support President Trump. The entire mainstream media is stacked against him, despite the fact that he is a big money earner for them. Look into the history of Operation MOCKINGBIRD and the recent explorations of AIM into the 100-year history of British propaganda operations against the US (videos at the end of the post).

There have been many proofs that Q is linked to Trump, not least of which has been the President unmistakeably making Q-shaped hand gestures in his rallies. There have also been unprecedented mainstream and alt-media attacks on the movement. All for a LARP?

Well Defango says, yes. He made a video saying he wanted to be my friend, but then became furious at me for saying he participates in LARPs. So much so that recently he threatened me.

[QD001] Defango Threatens Steve Larptrim

I said he participated in LARPs because he found the Spear of Destiny by solving online puzzles on his YouTube channel. What is solving puzzles on the Internet by going to places in real life to collect fantasy items, if not an ARG? I have a friend who’s into geocaching, that is a LARP. Pokémon Go? ARG: which = LARP. Defango is one of the main players in most of the YouTube Live Action Role Plays. He dresses up in costumes, dances, raps, takes vape hits, and operates his cellphone while driving. All in the name of…truth?

Defango has created an alternate channel called “LARP Wars”, and opens his videos on his main channel with “LARPers Paradise” graphics. And he claims to have created Q with James Browder and Microchip, as LARPers who were deliberately seeking new LARPs to troll people with.

Defango In His Own Words

Defango’s narrative is always shifting, and often contradicting. He actually says this is deliberate, he is sharing information with us in a non-linear fashion. I see it as part of the puzzle – he speaks truth mixed with lies, if you are able to discern the truth from the various “crumbs” he drops out, you can piece together a complete picture of what really happened.

Unfortunately for him, none of the other people involved have been able to effectively confirm his tales. We have no real evidence that Dreamcatcher is James Brower, or that either he, Turdbo or Microchip ever posted with Q’s tripcode. He told us Microchip was Justin McConney, then a few days later Microchip specifically denied that. Microchip said more evidence was coming than a 54 second video of some Discord chat, but this has not come out. Posobiec said he was getting more Discord logs, but he’s never published anything but Microchip’s video. We’re just taking the word of people who admit to being trolls and LARPers and agents.

I share here a selection of brief clips edited from Defango’s videos, I doubt any one person is able to watch every minute of every multi-hour stream he does, so please comment if there are any key details he revealed that I’ve left out.

Defango was a member of Cicada 3301 before he got kicked out. Thomas from Cicada has shared his side of events. To his credit, he has provided a great deal more evidence to back up all the claims he is making than Defango has. He has given me permission to share the material below, and suggested I contact the people mentioned to verify. I reached out to H3llfir3 but did not get a response yet. H3llfir3 was mentioned by Defango in his interview with Jason Bermas.

The evidence is not perfect, in that we can’t see the date or confirm that it was sent by Defango. It sure sounds like him. I asked Thomas if he could give me any further confirmation details and he responded promptly with this:

It is not perfect evidence, if Discord logs can be forged then forwarded emails could be forged, and we don’t have the message headers which would give further confirmation. To me the evidence Thomas has produced for this story is credible and consistent. YMMV.

Thomas has said that Q was born on Twitter, not Discord:

Here’s the thing then we never got on any of the chans. We simply did one very quick post on the cicada website and it was only meant to be an homage to white rabbit
But I was also in a large Twitter chat room, which included rabbit defango [NAME REDACTED] and others, and a guy named CJ was asking me a lot of questions about cicada. I also think that it took a full month between September 25th up until the end of October before there was any movement, so this substantiates two facts

The first is Manny did not create Q, and the second is even if he did post on 4chan that was a full month after cicada came up with a character called Q based upon White Rabbit. So Manny is wrong in saying that Q started as a LARP and that microchip and others were even in on the idea. Manuel was not involved with cicada in September or October in any creative development sense. And as far as [NAME REDACTED] and I, we had nothing to do with the development of 209 as a political psyop

Thomas said one of their fans got yelled at by Defango and gave them a heads up that he was trying to infiltrate Cicada:

A very nice English lady who was a fan of both my music and of Manuel Chavez show. Have lost a son and I believe Manuel had yelled at her on air. She came to us in September and told us that Manuel was trying to infiltrate cicada 3301. That’s why we took the necessary steps that we did to ensure is that our privacy is respected. 

Thomas denies that he or Monty M ever posted on 4chan in relation to Q:

Neither Monty nor I were ever on 4chan to develop or promote Q. Understand that Defango has admitted that he plotted and acted on “infiltrating” us as far back as Match 2017.He was confident he had fooled us. We spoofed an email from “Monty” to a person who sent it to Defango and he bit hook line and sinker, You see, he has a 137 IQ, or so he claims. We just had to have a 138 IQ to outfox him. Its not rocket science.

Monty refers to Monty McGovern. This information seems to have been a “barium meal” trap, designed to catch leakers.

[NAME REDACTED] leaked the email to Defango and he gave this information to Titus Frost, who outed Monty McGovern as part of the original Q team. In fact, it is an old high school friend of Thomas who had nothing to do with either Cicada or Q.

Some further answers from Twitter:

Thomas has shown me private emails with Monty McGovern that confirm his story that this was someone he knew in junior high school, and they were both the top pianists in the school.

So Defango’s earlier comments that Thomas and Monty were the original Q posters on 4chan are false.


[Update 17/1/19 11:59am]

One of the people mentioned as part of this operation has asked for their name to be removed from this story, and has labeled it “misinformation”. Accordingly their name has now been redacted. Here is their statement:

“I had nothing do do with Q nor would I ever .. setting this up to look like I am involved is a way for certain people to discredit me. Asking to put Rabbit in a puzzle does not equate to Q In any reality. Plus, from experience I believe all are lying. I was never for one second involved in this.. and would never condone this.”


Thomas says that they created a puzzle involving the letter Q. One of their members went by “Z”. He says the “Follow The White Rabbit” was put in as an homage to one of their members, White Rabbit (famous from the “Who Spoofed the Seth Rich Files” LARP, starring #Clownsource The Truth’s Jason Goodman, George Webb, and, of course, Defango)

Now you want to know the comparisons. The character that we introduced as Q was simply going to be an extension of other characters we put into the puzzle, for instance like Z

We view slogans like remember the future, and this [QAnon] made a derivation and sold it as future proves past

In 2016 we posted that a fludd approaches. That was a play on both the future leaks  to were to come [Warren Flood signature in Guccifer 2.0 leaks – Ed.]

In May of 2018 [QAnon] posted a flood is coming.

They steal our tropes and they don’t do it very effectively, or with any nuance, and that’s because their audience tense to be Evangelical and not used to subtlety.


I believe elements of unit 8200 became involved in the puzzle as soon as it went on to 8chan I think that they noticed the cicada 3301 was a powerful attractant to people I believe that elements of Israeli military intelligence correctly concluded that a cryptic deep throat would be perfect for this era of leaks and puzzles.


The problem is that they also stole our prophecy trope. Our prophecies come to pass. 

Take for example the prophecy of March 14th 2018. We wrote Eagles rain fire on the canaanite Then we pointed to the merchants of wine and the sword of Lily. On April 8th, Israeli F-15s, commonly known as Eagles, and produced by McDonnell Douglas, did indeed rain fire on parts of Lebanon and Syria. Then of course there was the fall murder of the journalist khashoggi, and The Merchant of wine was a cloaked finger pointing at Saudi Arabia as the sort of Lily had to do with the assassination by sword in the land of Lily.   Turkey.


We referenced the adopted sons of Jacob, referring to the khazars and this refer to Israel supplying the technology 4 Saudi Arabia to spy on khashoggi. The prophecy turned out to be 100% correct, as have earlier prophecies with cicada 3301. If you doubt me just go to YouTube and look up cicada 3301 Nostradamus.

Between you and me Steve I don’t have any idea how I do it. I’m not a terribly religious man and the stuff just comes to me in dreams oh, and I’m humbled by it I don’t ever charge money and other than that and playing some piano I’m pretty normal, and constantly lose my car keys, and make judgment mistakes as well LOL


He provided further evidence of Cicada correspondence at that time about the White Rabbit. Rabbit did an interview with Lift The Veil, included at the end of this post.

The White Rabbit’s pinned Tweet claims the first use of #Q on Twitter, in November 2015.

Cicada does have a track record of prophecies in their puzzles which came true, just like QAnon. Can Defango’s LARP team say the same?

The Vampire Lestat

During Defango and Dreamcatcher’s interview with Jason Bermas of WeAreChange, Lestat was very vocal in the chat, begging for Defango’s attention. Defango grouped him in with all his other detractors in the live chat, which included Thomas S, Lestat, and (alleged) uber-nemesis Jason Goodman.

Lestat was also in the earlier interview with Dreamcatcher on Defango’s channel, saying “me and Defango created Q”.


Lestat’s dates don’t line up with any of the rest of Defango’s story – it’s before DEFCON, and long before Microchip and Dreamcatcher allege they came up with the idea. Why can’t Lestat log into Discord and show the logs? Why can’t he post any other evidence to support his claim? Unfortunately for him, not even Defango acknowledges it.


[Update 17/1/19 11:59am]

I’ve been informed that “Lestat” in the chat was not the same avatar as “Lestat” Arturo, former Cicada member. However I think it is still reasonable to assume that any comments Defango made about Lestat in the interviews were directed at Arturo Lestat, not fake Lestat.


[Update 18/1/19 7:29am]

This post is causing quite a storm on my Twitter feed, with accusations flying back and forth. I’m not going to post all of them but I am going to try to post clarifications, as we all try to solve this puzzle together.

First is Lestat denying he ever had anything to do with Q:

Then we Lestat saying he was working with Q as recently as May 2018, and confirming Thomas’s story of a Cicada 3301 link to QAnon:

Thomas sure has a lot of detractors out there, but he has provided more evidence than anybody else. Most of Thomas’s story has even been confirmed by his critics, who seem to agree on the basic facts but view events through a different lens. Lestat to his credit is also providing evidence, though a lot if it seems to be about Thomas’ character rather than the specific claims made in this article about QAnon. So far Lestat has not been able to prove his claims that Thomas can’t play piano and is not a co-founder of Cicada 3301 in 2012 with Bruce C Clarke, Jr and Ian Murdock. To disprove this he would need to find some other Cicada founders. Defango has also told a story of going to Thomas’s house and seeing an oak tree from Liber Primus, and Thomas showing him the graphics of the tree that were used. Once again, we have conflicting stories between Lestat and Defango.


Who Is James Brower?

Brower is a former Trump campaign staffer from Massachussets.

3 weeks before Q launched, October 6 2017, Brower had been on InfoWars trying to link the Las Vegas shooter to Isis. Later in their Discord logs (posted further down in this post), they admit that this was part of their trolling operations. It’s interesting that one of their small crew hits the big time but their appearance does not seem worth mentioning in their Discord chat, even though they brag about much smaller media coverage.

“Former Massachusetts Trump campaign official James Brower posted a series of tweets last night claiming he was leaked information about Paddock being inspired by ISIS to carry out the mass shooting. “There is a video, this video will prove the motive. He had a secret digital profile that was uncovered over the last 24 hrs,” claims Brower. “I’m being told the video basically speaks about a network, they wouldn’t tell me directly if it was ISIS but they threw little hints that it was,” Brower told Infowars. “The reason the video more than likely is never released is because they believe it will trigger the “cells” he speaks of,” according to Brower. “There should be a statement on motive soon,” he added, “They believe he was inspired by ISIS.””

Brower returned to Twitter after an unexplained absence, only to have his new account almost immediately shut down.

Who is Microchip?

Microchip claims to be a “major troll”. He got kicked off Twitter, as did James Brower (within about a day of his “resurfacing”).

[QD010] Microchip Promises A Slow Drip, Telegram, Whatsapp Chat Logs

The “further evidence” Microchip told us was coming in September 2018 has still not been produced. All we have is the one video, with anomalies.


[Update 17/1/19 8:41pm]

Information is coming in that Microchip’s true identity may be a troll named Baked Alaska. A “baker”? There’s quite a lengthy 2016 article about the guy here.


Microchip brags in their Discord video about operating on the Internet under fake names. He created a petition at whitehouse.gov in July 2016 to have Black Lives Matter declared a terrorist organization, which received more than 100,000 signatures. He did the same thing a year later and it got almost 400,000 signatures. He then used the same text to create a petition declaring AntiFa a terror group. This is they day before their Discord chat log video starts.


Defango claims that Microchip is Justin McConney, who taught Trump to tweet and came up with the idea for red “MAGA” hats. He was named by WIRED magazine in 2016 as the #3 most influential tech person in the 2016 election.

Microchip insists he’s not Justin McConney:

[QD012] Microchip I’m Not Justin McConney, I Don’t Work for Trump or InfoWars

Looks like Defango is trying to get this post shut down before it even comes out. Will he and his crew try to crowdstrike my Vimeo account? We are quoting a public figure in his own words for non-profit discussion purposes, which is clearly Fair Use.

The Mighty Quinn

Defango had previously suggested Quinn Michaels was Q.

Quinn Michaels is Q, and sold it to Alex Jones and Lionel Nation

Issues In Interviews

Defango and James Brower seem to have some difficulty getting their story straight. Brower says he was Dreamcatcher, and was working with Microchip and Turdbo. Defango (watch the eye movements) quickly jumps in to say that he was Turdbo.

[QD002] Intro Brower is Dreamcatcher

Then, towards the end of the video, Defango says he wants to talk to other members of their LARP, including Dreamcatcher. But according to the narrative they are trying to push, he’s just been speaking to Dreamcatcher for 45 minutes. Brower doesn’t bother to correct him.

[QD005] Brower Got the Plan From Turdbo, Defango Reminds Him He’s Supposed to be Turdbo

In the video with WeAreChange, Dreamcatcher says he is Shitlord. Defango can’t believe he has revealed that information. There are a number of different meanings of the term “shitlord”, according to Urban Dictionary.

[QD027] Dreamcatcher is Shitlord, Watch Defango React

Links To Zionist Operations

Brower says that there is definitely something to the Israeli connection, and that Microchip has been spending time there. Defango says Microchip is Mossad.

[QD006] Microchip Went To Israel, Walls Work

[QD029] Microchip is Mossad

Just weeks before launching this Q operation, James Brower was on InfoWars pushing the narrative that Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock was a member of ISIS.

Alex Jones promoted Q directly. InfoWars’ Washington DC Bureau Chief Jerome Corsi promoted Q directly. He has been involved in other recent LARPs such as the Port of Charleston dirty bomb hoax event conducted by Jason Goodman and George Webb, who were both promoted by InfoWars. Corsi’s lawyer Larry Klayman is another frequent guest on both InfoWars and Jason Goodman’s channel BSTheTruth.

Corsi, Jones, Goodman and Webb also spent a great deal of time pushing the “Seth Rich Files”. You may remember Defango’s involvement in this major LARP. Frequent InfoWars contributor Roger Stone was even in contact with “Guccifer 2.0”, who appears to be an artificial construct.

Another proud boy Zionist waging the War for your Mind

Alex Jones hosted “Baruch the Scribe”, “Pamphlet”, and Jordan Sather from the Q team. He also said “I know Q personally” and several times suggested that “Zach” was part of the Q team. The fingerprints of the Zionist Information War are all over this operation. But were they there from the beginning?

The Missing Puzzle Piece

At no time in the recent interviews do Defango and Brower mention Justin McConney. He is also absent from Titus Frost’s video. To me, he is the key piece of the Q puzzle. Every time Defango mentions his name, one of the other LARPers quickly comes onto his channel to “correct the record” (*ahem*). Defango’s story has changed from “I was volunteering for Trump in Arizona, how do you think I got to meet McConney” to complete radio silence about this guy.

If you believe the narrative Defango and his associates have presented, these guys were working as a “special ops” social media team on behalf of Trump. They had no qualms about deception, psychological manipulation, and (arguably) fraud. And (at least) one of them is always going to Israel and is probably Mossad.

Can you imagine being the guy who taught Trump to tweet, “unleashing the velociraptors”? That guy is inside the tent. He probably gets his own cabana at Mar-A-Lago. Trump’s use of Twitter has changed the world, and made his career. He doesn’t want to get his boss in trouble for an experimental fringe operation that ended up going viral and became an egregore beyond their ability to control.

Why would Defango name this gentleman, then never mention him again? The only reason I can think of is that this part of the story is true. It explains almost everything about the Q movement.

Muh Discord

These “muh Discord logs” appeared on the scene a few months ago (September 2018), promoted by former Naval Intelligence officer and Guantanamo Bay prison guard Jack Posobiec – another frequent InfoWars guest and Zionist. Posobiec made a lot of noise about these Discord logs before he released them; when they came out, nobody was buying it. Defango and Dreamcatcher have not produced any further evidence to support their story in the past 4 months. The “evidence” that We Are Change and One America News Network are basing their Q stories on is these Discord chat logs.

Microchip recorded a video of him logging into the Discord server and posting a message. This was supposed to be evidence that they are legit.

The ONLY proof we have of Defango’s story is this video

Discord logs are easily manipulated. Go to the Discord App, click View, Developers, Toggle Developer Tools and you will see the console that gives you full control over the timeline, including a record function:

If you can film a video of yourself logging into a Discord server and posting to it, why not do that on a livestream? Why not just share a link to the Discord? To prove this story is accurate, Microchip, Dreamcatcher, and Turdbo should all do a livestream together, where each logs into that server and makes a post under their respective identities in real time. People in the chat can suggest words for each one of them to type.

This in itself was enough for people to dismiss this “bombshell evidence” that Posobiec produced, in communication with Defango and his troll team. The medium is the message, and when the medium of a messaging app is video and not the app itself, that is definitely a pretty significant message. However, there are even more anomalies – including a news article posted from the future.

Posobiec insists “it’s totally normal for Discord”, but this guy also insisted that XBox and Playstation don’t have chat. The easy fix would be to just log into the Discord on a live stream; if they can’t do that, then they would need to get some psyop guys to spread disinfo…

Q theirself commented on this, highlighting these peoples’ connections to Alex Jones and his associates. He also pointed out that the time on the phone does not change during the 54 second long video.

Q is responding to someone commenting on Mossad shills. In the Jan 14 2018 interview with We Are Change, Dreamcatcher (allegedly, James Brower) said that Microchip (allegedly, Justin McConney) was in Israel right now, and was always flying there because he was Mossad. For more information on the links between InfoWars and the Zionists, subscribe to Know More News (video at the end).

Defango says he quit the Discord and lost access to it. He never explains why they can’t just re-send the invite link to him. Seems like it would be kind of important. According to Dreamcatcher, the entire Discord server has been “lost”. Given how huge Q has become, and how significant the chat logs are to proving the association between these admitted LARPers and Q: how can that be? Are we supposed to believe these master hackers had a Discord server where they planned political trolling operations up until 4 months ago when Posobiec broke the story, then somehow accidentally deleted it and have no way to get it back?


[Update 17/1/19 2:06pm]

Unirock has done an excellent frame-by-frame analysis which proves conclusively that the date anomaly is not an accident, and also that these guys released 2 different versions of this video, one doctored to cover the date anomaly. Start at 20 minutes:

Praying Medic highlights how the time stays at 9:41 for the entire time of the video, which is not possible given the video itself is 54 seconds long; but not only that, “9:41” and 100% battery is in every Apple stock image for the iPhone. See the LARP coincidences piling up around this so called “evidence”?


Tripping On The Tripcodes

The “Q Tripcodes” are another piece of evidence that we’d expect to be there if this was real, but is missing from this latest LARP wave. Surely if Brower were Q, he could just write a post under Q’s Tripcode saying “I come clean, I’m James Brower”. Even if the tripcode he initially used is different from what Q posts under today, he could still prove his link to the original 4chan posts. If you created a LARP and you’re very sorry and now you want to come clean and apologize to everyone who fell for it, why wouldn’t you make that apology directly to your audience using the same communication channels you used to reach them in the first place? Rather than DefangoTV?

The LARPers explain the lack of this evidence by saying that they only posted the first 2-3 posts – before Q used tripcodes or the code name Q Clearance Patriot. That sure is convenient! In Defango’s latest version of the narrative, Cicada was posting as Q after that, using the tripcode Matlock.

[QD031] Defango Had Matlock Before Q, Monty M Posted As Q

Supposedly Q got “taken over” when it was moved from 4chan to 8chan. Defango challenges Brower on this, saying he could still post on 4chan. Brower makes the excuse that the computer he used is “gone forever”. When pressed, he says “he spilled coffee all over it”. Defango is not buying that, saying he has the skills to recover a computer from that situation; at the end of the video, Brower says he’ll mail it in. We’ll see what happens; if he mails the computer in and Defango can fix it so that Brower can post as Q once again, that will tell us something. If that doesn’t happen, it also tells us something. Why does Defango even care, if they never posted under Q’s “Matlock” tripcode?

[QD008] Brower Will Send Defango His Coffee-Damaged Laptop in the Mail to Fix

As it is, we have to assess this as no Discord logs (limited video only, with anomalies) and no posting with the tripcode. So what is their proof that they are Q?

Defango has said that Keybase also proves James Brower is Q, but I just don’t see that at all. Maybe it’s because I’m stupid and a garbage human like Defango is always telling me, and not an enlightened fifth dimensional being like him…perhaps someone can explain this link to me in the comments.

Q Is Lying, Only Defango Tells The Truth?

Q has produced far more proof than Defango and his team of LARPers. That’s not to say that Defango has produced no proof, because what he’s given us is “not nothing”. But is it real evidence, or fake evidence?

I see him as having being involved in this pysop, perhaps always on the periphery, perhaps closer to the inner core for the first couple of months like his story says, or perhaps it is exactly as he previously claimed: he’s the genius that invented it all and gave it to the Feds at Defcon and wrote half the questions.

There is no evidence to support the latter; even the evidence Defango has produced himself does not support it, because it shows Dreamcatcher and Microchip coming up with the questions, and the whole idea originating much later than DEFCON 25.

If you were to assume for the sake of argument that the chat logs are real, we still don’t have proof that the players are all who they claim to be. We should consider the possibility that Defango is Dreamcatcher – the avatar looks more like him than Brower, and the writing patterns seem to match his own unique form of literacy. Following on from this, Turdbo could be McConney, or someone else higher up the food chain than these guys. Turdbo only drops in occasionally, and when he does he seems to be the shot-caller.

If Turdbo was Defango, you’d think there’d be something in these chat logs to confirm his earlier story of presenting his idea at DEFCON and writing most of the questions for the initial Q posts. He barely says anything in this so-called “proof”.

Turdbo is either the boss of the operation (which is why Microchip wants to loop him in all the time) or is playing a minor role.

It is clear that Microchip is communicating with others in DM (Direct Message) groups, and has to check with them for permission before doing any active operations. I have been invited into discussion groups on Twitter with some of these people connected to this story, it seems to be a method where they seed information “crumbs” to people who then distribute them out further to their own networks. This is reminiscent of the cellular structure of the Illuminati, first described by John Robison in Proofs of a Conspiracy in 1798 and still devastatingly effective today.

It should be easy for Defango, Dreamcatcher, and Microchip to publish some of these DM messages which would further confirm they were part of the #QAnon operation. What happened to the Telegram and WhatsApp chats that Microchip was going to share?

As I write this, Q has 2673 posts. Many of the predictions have come true, and some of the information has hit the mainstream media months later (#FutureProvesPast). How many Q posts do these LARPers have? Even by their own accounts, only the first 2 or 3, which did not use the name Q.

Other Anomalies

At one point in the chat they are trying to link their deliberate creation of Q as a LARP to troll Christians with previous LARPS WikiLeaks and PizzaGate, “big conspiracy stuff”. It seems like an awfully convenient narrative for the Deep State, who wants us to think that WikiLeaks, PizzaGate, and QAnon are just “tin foil hat” conspiracy theories.

I find it very strange that these chat logs show the Three LARPeteers (Dreamcatcher, Microchip and Turdbo) saying “I’m a troll, I love trolling, I’m a LARPer, let’s plan a LARP to do on people, we don’t have any facts this is completely made up”. Do people actually speak like that? If Defango is part of a political operations team with people who speak like that, why is he so offended by being called a LARPer? How has he gone from his prior (post-Q) outrage to now “yes me and my friends deliberately plan LARPs” in such a short space of time?

I have worked with many people in the tech industry over my career, including more than 1000 software developers. Some of those have been actual hackers, and some of them have had previous experience as Defense contractors. I am familiar with the culture of these people around the world. However, I am a generation ahead of Defango. I’m not sure the age of Brower and Microchip, perhaps they are Millenials also. I find it hard to understand Millenials and it’s quite possible that they speak in ways that are alien to me. I’ve just never seen or heard anything like it before. It seems contrived, like “write some dialog between 3 people showing that you planned LARPs together to troll people. “.

One of the things that makes 4chan interesting as a staging ground for Memetic Warfare is that posts there are not archived by the Wayback Machine. However they are searchable if you have the post number. It is interesting that every single URL to 4chan posted in these Discord logs does not bring up a post in the search. 4chan threads do get archived at 4plebs, so it is possible to get the links from Microchip’s Discord video even though the URLs don’t work. They link to the first couple of posts attributed to Q, even though the posts don’t say anything about Q.

At no point do the Discord logs show how they figured out things #QAnon posted about before they happened, like the Saudi purge, Rothschild estate helicopter crash, social media disruptions, airport and rail accidents…

In fact, the many (and by now, there really are many) QProofs don’t even get a mention in these videos. Defango addressed it in the comments to his interview with Dreamcatcher:

Zero proofs? Compared to their video of Discord chat with date, time, and scrolling anomalies?

At one point in the chat logs, they are talking about Operation MOCKINGBIRD. However, the information they share about it is a classic limited hangout: the official CIA position, which is they only have 5 pages of records of it. These self-proclaimed major researchers, creating a LARP to redpill the world, really don’t know anything about Mockingbird? And yet they are supposed to be writing the Q posts? Here is what they link to – why not the Wikipedia page, which has much more useful information?

My Take On What Happened

Cicada, who have connections to White Hats in the intelligence community such as American Intelligence Media’s “Conclave”, wanted to come up with a puzzle that would support Trump’s plans to take on the Deep State and drain the swamp. They were feeding information to Justin McConney and other hackers in the Trump social media team via Defango. Defango was sent to DEFCON to deliver a message from Cicada and see if they could engage any of these people in their puzzle. Defango, who had tried to cultivate a direct relationship with McConney and his team, then broke away from Cicada and tried to co-opt the puzzle for himself. They launched their own version before the official one launched with the tripcodes – remember Defango’s story of the Vescia Pisces “some of the people in Cicada are involved in other groups but not everyone in Cicada is in the other group”. I would see the “other group” here as the Intelligence Community. The official driving of the Q puzzle moved to Trump loyalists connected to SOCOM, who initially gave it to some of their junior players. If you look who was covering #QAnon in the early days, it was Unirock, SGT Report, Lift The Veil, Tracy Beanz, Jordan Sather. Not saying that all of those people are military intelligence; but they may have been encouraged to get involved by them. YouTube search algorithms were manipulated by this group to promote the QAnon hashtag and massively increase the subscriber base of those pushing it out. Tracy Beanz helped set up the Reddit board, at which point the Q Controllers became concerned (Reddit is compromised, founder Aaron Swartz died in suspicious circumstances, CEO is a cannibal, big history of conservative censorship there). A team of “Bakers” took it to 4chan/pol, posting with the Calm Before The Storm (CBTS) theme.

These Bakers were probably a military-intelligence cyber team, working out of Fort MacDill in Tampa, Florida. As the operation continued its success and viral growth, the more senior SOCOM teams wanted in. Enter InfoWars. They brought with them the Zionist faction, most likely Unit 8200. This is when the boards moved from 4chan to 8chan (run by ex-Army guy), and the Patriots Soapbox 24/7 channel was created. People suddenly started to see dollar signs and tried to monetize Q.

Q grew too big and they tried to shut it down. Corsi and InfoWars turned on Q. Since then the rest of the InfoWars team has been on a mission to shut it down; possibly, because Q is a threat to their franchise; possibly, because the orders have come down from above. With crimes being committed in the name of Q, even possibly a murder, it is starting to look bad for the Trump base. There are still white hats in the government feeding intel to the Q team. One recent proof that dropped was photos of Lisa Page and Peter Strzok together in London – Q knew about that long before it was revealed that Page also went to London, previously only Strzok’s visit was known about.

I am inclined to believe Defango’s original story, that he brought the idea of having a LARP that educated people to “a room full of Feds and military people with higher-level security clearances than me” at a DEFCON 25 Skytalk about whistleblowers in July 2017. I believe Microchip (who is apparently very close to the Israelis) was the boss of this cell, with a direct line of communication to Justin McConney. Maybe he is McConney like Defango says (Microchip denied it in his interview with Defango). This operation was initially supported by the US-based psyops team, then expanded to include Israeli psyops personnel. It subsequently descended into infighting, bickering, and cult-like behavior, at which point the higher-ups decided it had to be shut down because it was no longer bringing the desired benefits (unite the base, maintain morale, deflect from General Flynn/Manafort prosecution, provide back-channel communications bypassing Mockingbird media). What we are seeing now is a limited hangout, where Defango gets to claim more credit than he is due in order to ensure the operation is distanced from Trump.

I will give Defango, Dreamcatcher, and Microchip the benefit of the doubt. If they can produce some of this evidence to support their case, then maybe I will take them at their word: it really is #All4aLARP.

  • Post on 4chan from any of the trip codes (except Matlock)
  • Any one of them log into the Discord on a live stream and bring up what Microchip showed in his video
  • Explain the Q Proofs
  • Explain Justin McConney’s role
  • Produce a witness who heard the presentation at Defcon
  • Show other messages, Tweets, DMs, email, WhatsApp, Telegram chats that support their stories

Until they do, I remain convinced that Q is real. A real psyop.

Washoe Shoedown as Pershing Tensions Reach Breaking Point

The Pershing County Sheriff’s report for Burning Man 2018 paints a bleak picture. The cops can’t provide the coverage they need to because the event goes for months, not 7 days like the deal they cut in 2013.

The “liaison” person assigned by Burning Man has had to have the same legal process explained to them for 4 years in a row. The Sheriff understandably feels like they are talking to a brick wall, and are no longer going to engage with this person. Not a great sign.

Humboldt Medical, who got unceremoniously shoved out the door a couple of years ago, are now back as the vendor of choice for Burning Man’s medical needs.

Now we have the issue of Burning Man moving being re-assigned to Washoe County (where the city of Reno/Sparks is), which was just tabled at a County Commissioner’s meeting. Washoe are suggesting re-defining the boundary between Washoe and Pershing Counties so that Burning Man falls under Washoe’s jurisdiction. Effectively annexing part of Pershing County, NV for the benefit of a California corporation.

This would seem to make sense since the city of Reno have been enthusiastic about the cultural and economic benefits brought by Burners, whereas Pershing County’s nearest town of Lovelock are culturally against Burning Man and derive no benefit from the event, only costs.

Looks like there was another death this year, and plane crashes both this year and last year. Like so much of the Burning Man real news, this gets hushed up. Thanks to our source for all the information they have shared.

2018-PCSO-PMS-Appendixs-A-B-E


Some highlights:










Burning Man used to take the ice sales from Arctica (and the tips given there) and use that to support local charities in Gerlach, Lovelock and the surrounding area. This has sadly been on the decline, as “BMorg the tax free entity” has risen to the fore.

Charity:

Here’s the breakdown for 2017:

Pershing County

For 2017, Burning Man Project made donations to Pershing County organizations totaling $13,500. These organizations and groups include: Pershing County Senior Center, Eagle Scholarship, Pershing County Community Center, Pershing County High School Athletic Department, Pershing General Hospital & Nursing Care, Lovelock Animal Shelter, Lovelock Frontier Days, Lovelock Lions Club, Friends of the Library, Marzen House Museum, Kids, Horses & Rodeos, Lovelock Food Bank, Lovelock Boy Scouts Association, Lovelock Little League Association, Pershing County Arts Council, Safe Haven Animal Sanctuary, Lovelock Volunteer Fire Department and Project Graduation.

Since 2003, Burning Man has donated $468,350 to Pershing County organizations and charities.

Insane in the Ukraine Part 2 – The Spin Begins

Jason Goodman has responded to our Part 1 article Insane in the Ukraine – J.Go Like You’ve Never Seen Him Before in a recent episode of “Sundays With Charles”.

A summary of the claims he made:

  • “it started before I got involved”
  • “the original aircraft was purchased in Sweden”
  • “the two original owners of that company actually decided to go to Ukraine and do a video over the Chernobyl nuclear reactor”
  • “this is before I got involved in the company”
  • “they got in a dispute with the Swedish manufacturer and the helicopter failed”
  • “when I joined that company they had no working helicopter, I had to go to Sweden and re-establish the relationship with the manufacturer to get that helicopter repaired and back in the sky”
  • “then I got them to change the name of their company to Aerocine”
  • “the rest is history that’s being distorted by some people who would perpetrate falsehoods on the Internet in an effort to damage Crowdsource the Truth”

Although he does not name us specifically, it is clear that Jason is insinuating that the information presented in Insane in the Ukraine is false. We are not trying to perpetrate falsehoods, as he alleges. We are trying to present true information, supported with citations. So let’s take a look at the evidence we have and compare it to the claims Jason Goodman just made.

Goodman claims that he was not the CEO of Aerocine when the drone flew over Chernobyl at the time of the Ukrainian revolution – February 21, 2014. He certainly had no problems talking about being the CEO a couple of weeks later at London’s 3D Creative Summit on March 12-13, 2014. Did he really only join the company (formed by his NYU Film School chums) between Feb 21 and March 12, just in time for a speaking gig at the conference?

Video of Jason Goodman presenting as CEO of Aerocine in London, March 12-13 2014: 

He says “it became clear to me that this micro-aerial platform had a tremendous future and so we formed Aerocine. Doesn’t that make it sound like he was a co-founder of the company, and not just someone hired to join them later on?

“I am aware that a video we posted several weeks ago has gone viral” (presumably meaning the Chernobyl video)

We’ve been working on this for a long time, selecting the best platform, the best motors, we’ve done everything to modify the rotor configuration and just tweak this thing out to the utmost extent” – doesn’t that imply he’s been working on this drone project for longer than 2 weeks? Wouldn’t they have done all that tweaking and adjusting BEFORE their flagship Chernobyl flight debut?

8:00 we’ve been working with ARRI CSC. At the end of February we flew an Alexa XT and this is some footage of that”

“We” implies the speaker considers himself part of the group. Goodman is visible in the video clip he plays and appears to be directing the events.

Further video of this flight at ARRI in New York: 

Here is Aerocine’s demo reel, shot in Chernobyl in February 2014. Did they use a different camera?  

That Aerocine was in Ukraine in Feb 2014 is also confirmed from co-founder Jeff Brink’s instagram:

Aerocine, LLC was incorporated December 12, 2013.

Source: bootscores.com

Jason Goodman filed the trademark for Aerocine in his own name, citing first use anywhere March 13, 2014. This is weird, since it seems like it was being used in February to film the Aerocine demo reel. Aerocine’s own web site says they made their public debut March 12, 2014, and talks about its record-breaking drone flight on February 21, 2014. 

It seems there may be some copyright issues specific to the use of the drone in February. If this was not a commercial gig for Aerocine, then who paid for the mission? What was the real purpose of the mission? Who owns all the footage now? 

Goodman’s claims that the Chernobyl flight was “before I got involved with the company” are at odds with the video he shows in his own presentation of him directing the world’s first micro-aerial flight of an ARRI Alexa XT in February 2014. The video of this also proves his claim that “they had no working helicopter when I got involved” to be false. His claim that “I got them to change the name of the company after I got involved” is at odds with the company registration information and his own trademark filings. 

If we are “perpetrating falsehoods”, we sure have a lot of evidence to accompany our perpetration. Evidence that comes from Goodman and his company themselves, and disproves his own claims. The onus is now on Mr Goodman to provide any evidence whatsoever that any of our claims are false.

Insane in the Ukraine: J.Go Like You’ve Never Seen Him Before [UPDATES]

Recognize this guy? Jason Goodman, CEO of Aerocine, the first company to fly a full-size RED EPIC camera on a “heavy payload” micro-hexacopter drone.

It’s almost like we’re watching an actor playing a different character. This one is confident and slick, walking with a military bearing.

Here’s the video that was chopped out of this clip.

It’s certainly spectacular footage. They won an award at the first ever New York Drone Film Awards.

So why does Jason Goodman never mention this?

There’s nothing in his demo reel about it:

His company 21st Century 3D’s “news” section hasn’t been updated since 2012. Being a CEO of an award-winning drone company is somehow not newsworthy, or relevant to the resumé of a film-maker?

Why have we never once seen a drone shot, in hundreds if not thousands of episodes of Crowdsource the Truth? Why didn’t this expertise come up when Jason was covering the Las Vegas massacre? Why did he trespass to see what the view was like from on top of a nearby gas station when he could have got a better shot perfectly legally with a drone? He explored the theory of guns being attached to helicopters, so why didn’t he ever touch the idea of guns being on drones? He was the CEO of a company that pioneered heavy lift drones and was one of the first companies in the US to get one of the FAA 333 flight exemptions for drones.

Jason Goodman’s IMDB page stops in 2014, with the Bryan Singer movie X-Men: Days of Future Past.

In 2014 Goodman registered the trademark “Aerocine”.

On February 21, 2014 Aerocine flew their drone through the Chernobyl site in Pripyat, Ukraine – less than 100 miles from the capital city Kiev.

Image: Google Maps

When I say “through” I mean that quite literally, as the video has many shots of the drone inside buildings and structures. The city of Pripyat is a ghost town, abandoned since the nuclear disaster in 1986. The whole area is in a military Exclusion Zone that is now administered by Ukraine’s Ministry of Emergency Services.

When you land in a new country with a brand new drone, to attempt something never done before in cinematography, do you:

a) get off the plane and go immediately to the remote film site from the airport and start filming

b) rest for a few days, show up at the remote site on the day of filming and hope everything works fine first time

c) get off the plane and go to a hotel. Sleep, test the drone around a major city where you can get parts and repairs, and then travel to the remote film site confident it works

It would be c) don’t you think?

So it would be reasonable to assume that the Aerocine team was in Ukraine with their drone a few days earlier than the filming date February 21, 2014.

On February 18 , 2014 the Ukrainian “Color Revolution” turned hot in Kiev. The biggest day of massacre was February 20, 2014.

Isn’t that an interesting coincidence? Jason Goodman is the CEO of a company which is operating the world’s most advanced commercial HD video drone in Ukraine at the exact time a Western-backed coup breaks out there. It’s almost as big a coincidence as Jason having his “Crowdsource the Truth” team member Joe Napoli in the crowd in Las Vegas when the worst lone gunman massacre in history breaks out there.

The founders of Aerocine (who attended NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts) traveled the world, and deployed their drone with 3-man teams: pilot, camera operator, and aircraft technician.

Aerocine co-founder Brian Streem, rocking the ruby slippers

One of the key features of the Maidan revolution were snipers, who turned out to be picking off people on both sides to foment chaos.

 

How would the snipers figure out the best positions to shoot from? Searching on Google Earth would leave footprints. Strolling the streets checking out rooftops and balconies might attract attention and get picked up on CCTV surveillance.

Hmmm, what about a convenient cover story of flying an experimental drone with high-definition video capability through a site with no economic or military value? If anyone asks, you can show them all the paperwork that must surely have been issued to them by the government to access a radiological disaster zone that has been abandoned for 30 years. “We needed to test it before filming”. Of course a drone can’t help but record the views and angles from rooftops and balconies.

The Daily Beast had an exclusive article claiming the snipers were from Ukraine SBU (the post-Soviet version of the KGB)’s elite counter-terrorism Alfa Team, and had been trained by Russian special forces.

Many at the time felt that the coup was a Soros/Clinton/Obama/CIA-backed revolution, aimed at weakening Russia and monopolizing the gas pipeline infrastructure that brings most of Europe’s natural gas supply in.

After this successful mission in 2014, the team took their drone to the United Arab Emirates; specifically, Dubai

Here’s the first test flight of their rig, which was made by assembling off-the-shelf equipment.

Who are these guys?

 

Did they get those trenchcoats at Spies-R-Us?

For some unknown reason, Aerocine changed their name to Aerial Robotics and conducted the first “legal” drone flight in New York City, working closely with the Federal Aviation Authority. This was a big deal!

They even made Stars and Stripes, the official magazine of the US military:


New-Age Weaponry

The RED 4k camera weighs 16 lbs (7.3 kg)

A fully loaded M4 (military) weighs 7.4 lbs (30 rounds)

A fully loaded AR15 (civilian) weighs 8 lbs (30 rounds)

The Israelis are leading the way in drone technology:

A defense company put a machine gun on a drone

 

 

 

 

Duke Robotics even boasts a Rothschild on the board.

 

 

 


 

Ukraine

Ukraine has been brought to the forefront of US political discussion recently due to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s prosecution of lobbyists Paul Manafort, Tony Podesta and Rick Gates, who took millions from Ukraine. Manafort was formerly Roger Stone’s partner in Manafort-Stone, another lobbying firm.

Jason Goodman’s good friend and journalism mentor Lee Stranahan, whom he has known for 20+ years, is also an expert on Ukraine. He keeps claiming that Ukraine is the key to #SpyGate and meddling in the 2016 election, although no other journalists or publications are running with this story.

Jason frequently has Robyn Gritz on his show. She is quoted on the Wikipedia page for Oleg Deripaska. She was working for Robert Mueller and Andrew McCabe in the FBI when they recruited Deripaska as an agent who spent $25 million of his own money on a mission trying to rescue American CIA agent Robert Levison from Iran.

So Jason leaves his Hollywood career to fly drones. Their first mission is to Ukraine, where his team lands right before a CIA-backed coup breaks out. Was Jason with the team, boots on the ground? Or leading from the home office as CEO?

The video credits Oscar Ohlson as the drone pilot. Company co-founder Jeff Brink was definitely there, according to his Instagram:

 

Jason certainly wasn’t shy about basking in the glory of his company’s achievements. Here he is in Cannes, France:

What happened?

The next thing we know, Goodman is starting a YouTube channel. One of the debut episodes was 2 hours with Roger Stone:

Another early episode was dedicated to bashing President Trump, which is interesting given Goodman’s post-election 200+ Anti-Clinton shows with Charles Ortel.

What is Project TRUTH ENGINE? Who is it a project for? IARPADARPA? LARPers? All of the above?

Jason Goodman hit the big time when he linked up with George Webb, introduced by Lee Stranahan. Within a couple of weeks, he had introduced George Webb to Dr Jerome Corsi. Corsi fed George with steak, George fed Corsi with stories: that he was part of the WikiLeaks network, that he used to participate in thumb-drive drops in parks where he gave information to Mike Ratner (died 5/11/16) who passed it on to John Jones (died 8/16/16). Dead men can verify no tales. George also said that he met Julian Assange in Australia in 1984. At that time Julian would have been 12 and part of the Santiniketan Park Association MKULTRA cult.

Julian Assange was living in psychologist Anne Hamilton-Byrne’s cult where all the children had white hair and interchangeable names, when George Webb claims he met him at age 12

Self-described Zionist George Webb Sweigert must have passed the test of B’Nai B’rith Fund manager Corsi with flying colors, because a few days later both George and Jason met with Dr Corsi in his office.

The next day (or maybe it was 2 days) the Dynamic Duo are on InfoWars with Mike Cernovich. Their content came from Luke Rosiak‘s excellent reporting on the Awan Brothers protected Pakistani spy ring in Congress:

2 weeks after this, they used Jason’s YouTube channel and George’s fan base to shut down the 8th busiest port in the United States with a fake “dirty bomb” scare propagated through social media. Jason made sure he was texting back and forth with Jerome Corsi all the way through the event. George checked in with CIA case officer Robert David Steele before he provided the hashtags for the social media blast. In CryptoBeast #16 we heard from a former insider of this operation how an FBI contract informant with the code name “Deep Uranium” representing the shadowy “Hudson Intelligence Group” was feeding them the easily debunkable information that drove the operation.

They could have got some great shots of the container ship coming into port and the containers being examined with a drone.

It’s curious that none of this information appeared in Defango’s 2-hour doxx special on Jason Goodman.

[UPDATE: Defango claims that he covered all of this material before a year ago, just on his Merlin Defango backup channel where he deleted many [Manny] of the videos. He acknowledged that he did miss the Ukraine coup angle. I have updated the screenshot of Super-Goodman to credit that it came from Defango’s video.]


The drone company changed its name to Aerobo and took some investment from Valor Ventures who are expecting triple-digit revenue growth.

[Source: Crunchbase]

[Source: Pitchbook]

The company was profiled in Inc magazine’s 2017 “30 Under 30”, after Jason Goodman left. They exceeded $1 million in sales in their first year.

Started a company, got lots of Hollywood and (perhaps) intel contracts, made millions, raised millions…went back to being an electrician? The CEO went to begging for Patreon subs and George Webb sleeping on his couch?

It feels like there are parts of this story that we’re not being told.

[Update 4/12/18 11:41am]

Less than 2 weeks after the cyber-attack targeting the container ship Maersk Memphis shut down the Port of Charleston for 8 hours, the Maersk shipping line experienced another, far more severe cyber-attack. A devastating ransomware virus called “NonPetya” cost more than $300 million.

https://www.zdnet.com/article/maersk-forced-to-reinstall-4000-servers-45000-pcs-due-to-notpetya-attack/

Maersk has revealed that a devastating ransomware attack which struck businesses across Europe in 2017 required close to a “complete infrastructure” overhaul and the reinstallation of thousands of machines.

The Danish transport and logistics conglomerate fell prey to a campaign which used a modified version of the Petya ransomware, NonPetya, bringing down IT systems and operational controls across the board.

Maersk, a container ship and supply vessel operator, previously warned that the ransomware attack would cause losses of up to $300 million due to “serious business interruption.”

The firm, with offices in 130 countries and a workforce of close to 90,000, was one of the most high-profile victims of the Petya campaign, which spread rapidly by utilizing the leaked US National Security Agency (NSA) exploit EternalBlue, which targets Microsoft Windows systems.

The same exploit was used to spread WannaCry, ransomware which caused horrendous disruption to healthcare systems including the UK’s National Health Service (NHS).

In Maersk’s case, while no customer or business data is believed to have been exposed, the firm endured severe disruption and was forced to halt operations as the ransomware spread through core IT systems.

Speaking at the World Economic Forum this week, Møller-Maersk Chairman Jim Hagemann Snabe shared further details on the attack, which resulted in a reinstall of “our entire infrastructure,” according to the executive.

In total, Maersk reinstalled 4,000 servers, 45,000 PCs, and 2,500 applications in what the chairman called a “heroic effort” over ten days, one in which the executive said may have usually taken up to six months to implement.

“Imagine a company where a ship with 10 to 20 thousand containers is entering a port every 15 minutes, and for 10 days, you have no IT,” Hagemann commented. “It’s almost impossible to even imagine.”

However, thanks to the efforts of staff, the company only experienced a 20 percent drop in volume, while the remaining 80 percent of operations were handled manually until systems were up and running once more.

Hagemann said the ransomware attack was a “very significant wake-up call for Maersk, and you could say, a very expensive one.”

The Petya attack originated in Ukraine and quickly spread worldwide.

Where did that cyber-attack originate from? Ukraine.

In fact, Ukraine itself seems to have been the target of this unprecedented in scale cyberattack which came on the eve of Ukraine’s national holiday. It shut down radiation monitoring systems at the Chernobyl Power Plant.

From Wikipedia:

Who do we know that was a virus sales guy, who used to work for McAfee where he was a colleague of Russian-born author of “Operation Shady RAT” Dmitri Alperovich (founder of Crowdstrike)?

[Update 4/12/18 4:29pm]

George Webb has made a rebuttal video to clarify some of his claims. I am interested in veracity, so if anyone else mentioned here would like to make a video response to clarify or dispute anything I will include it on this page.

George definitely doesn’t think Jason was in on any “Government Action”, then gaslights about the years he met Assange. Now he met him when he was 16 at seminars teaching kids about UNIX. He taught at Melbourne University, Monash and LaTrobe. It could have been one of those, he saw about 4 kids the same age with the same dyed hair. He’s not claiming that it was Julian Assange. “They did have this thing out in the Dandenongs which was like children of the corn”

 


[Update 4/12/18 9:48pm]

Here is what George Webb said on the Hagmann Report about WikiLeaks on 5/25/17. I have edited it down to the specific WikiLeaks comments for brevity, original source here


[Update 5/12/18 8:52am]

George Webb made another video about me. In typical style, he pretends to know a bunch of stuff which turns out to be incorrect.

Let me clarify:

  • It’s Urbanise not Urbanize
  • I am a co-founder of the company and helped set up their Dubai office in 2007 (when it was called Majitek)
  • I don’t own Urbanise, it is a public company listed on the Australian Stock Exchange since 2014 UBN.AX
  • I have not been a substantial shareholder in the company for many years
  • I’ve never owned a private jet
  • I’ve never met any members of the UAE royal family (but I follow a couple of them on Twitter, which I guess to “researchers” like George makes me besties with them)

You can read most of this on my LinkedIn or Wikipedia pages. I guess George had the skills to find those but not to convey the information from the Web to his YouTube channel with accuracy. Or perhaps he can’t help himself, and just has to distort and add his own narratives to any information he presents.

I also made a video about my story. George Webb supporters who think that if I question anything he says that’s proof my money must come from deep state ratlines, and since I’m from New Zealand I must be a spy because there’s a “Five Eyes” intelligence sharing agreement, should check it out:


[Update 5/12/18 11:30pm]

The Rothschilds sure seem interested in these drone companies! What are the mathematically probabilities that this story could connected to 2 different Rothschilds, one putting guns on drones, one putting HD cameras on them?

After Jason left Aero(Cine)bo for the greener pastures of Roger Stone, Dr Corsi and George Webb, his Tisch schoolmate Brian Streem teamed up with Rick Rothschild to film Ferraris, the Statue of Liberty and the London Eye with 6k RED EPIC drones.

Who better than one of the Rothschilds to run consult to projects putting “Eyes in the Skies”?

 

In 2015 Aerocine Aerobo teamed up with #MeToo disgraced newsman Matt Lauer, to film him cycling


[Update 6/12/118 9:20am]

The plot thickens. Here is George and Jason down in Roger Stone’s neck of the woods, meeting Jason’s ex-wife who is Ukrainian (and a former Trump employee, who praises him enthusiastically). Interestingly, both George and Jason speak Russian in this video. George sounds particularly fluent, although I don’t speak Russian myself. His intonation and pronunciation sounds smooth and practiced.

(note: original video deleted since publishing, this is a substitute)

 

Tatyana Petruk was groomed from an early age in the Soviet Union to be an international gymnast. According to her resumé at Jason’s company 21st Century 3D, she left the circus to join Donald Trump.

She has a very special set of skills, which include “glow sticks”

Now she provides high-end entertainers to exclusive elite events.
