CryptoBeast #20 MKGRATEFUL – Was the Grateful Dead a Psychological Operation?

In CryptoBeast #19 Chip Wood claimed that he created the Grateful Dead in 1963 in Fountain Valley School in Colorado Springs, where he was a student with Bob Weir and John Perry Barlow, as a psyop to prevent global thermonuclear war.

In this episode I present some of my own research into the Grateful Dead, the Merry Pranksters, and Stanford’s “Bohemian Quarter”, Perry Lane.

I recorded this before Easter but have experienced computer problems like never before trying to edit it and get it out on YouTube. The best way I could describe the issues would be “jamming”. Large chunks of files would go missing, uploads and render jobs would continually fail 80% of the way through, or Final Cut would just crash. It may be that my aging iMac doesn’t have the juice to render HD files from my new webcam and with my different background.

For some reason today it finally all worked – except for some weird audio and video gremlins. My computer today is just the same as yesterday and a week ago, so what changed? Today New Zealand’s entire military/intelligence apparatus is focused on Prince William’s visit to the two Christchurch mosques. Ding that coincidence meter again.

Please download and share the video just in case They are trying to shut it down.

Here’s the previous episode in which Chalmers Wood, Jr shared his story of the true origins of the Grateful Dead.

John Kerry on the Grateful Dead:

Afterward, Kerry came out and told us, among other, more important things, about how he discovered the Fillmore West and the Dead when he came to SF after Viet Nam, and how the Dead have remained a big part of his life ever since. As soon as he said it, a woman just behind me screamed out, “Yeaaaah!!!!” I turn around expecting a hippy chick who got in, like me, on a miracle ticket. I see a 60 year old, perfectly coiffed woman in a $2,000 gown, looking every inch a CEO, with a huge grin on face, shaking her fists in the air. Every one around me is grinning, too. A couple of high-buck, gray-beard lawyers in front of me start up the chant: “Go Johnny! Be Good!” And you know, I started to believe he will be.

The infamous “Missing Cornell Show”, and Lyndon LaRouche comments on the Grateful Dead: https://archive.org/post/93123/conspiracy-theory

LaROUCHE: He was pro-Nazi.(Carl Jung) He was an occultist, satanic cultism. 
I don’t know if he went as far as (Aleister) Crowley did in identifying 
Satan, but it was the same structure. Allen Dulles(C.I.A. director) was very 
close to this crowd personally. As to what was going on in Allen’s mind at 
this time I don’t fully know. But then you get the MK-ULTRA operation. 

60 Greatest Conspiracies: The mind control operation? 

LaROUCHE: That was an Allen Dulles period operation which was run together with the occult types in British intelligence, such as Aldous Huxley. And also Gregory Bateson who created, for example, the Grateful Dead out of an MK-ULTRA operation at the Palo Alto Veteran’s Hospital where he was supervising. The first United States-grown rock group of that type, the Grateful Dead, was generated as a British intelligence operation by the Occult Bureau of Huxley and bateson out of the Palo Alto Veteran’s Hospital where they were doing LSD and related experiments. 

60 Greatest Conspiracies: Why would British intelligence want to put out a rock roup? 

LaROUCHE: Well, this is part of the Satanism business. Call it the 
counterculture. Call it the Dionysius model of the counterculture. Rock is 
essentially a revival of the ancient Dionysic, Bacchic rituals. Lots of 
people or long periods of time in that kind of particular rhythmic ritual 
which was probably struck upon empirically many thousands of years ago for this type of cult. It does have a relationship to the Alpha rhythms of the brain. It does produce these sorts of states. If combined with a little 
alcohol and more, shall we say, mood shaping substances, with youth, with funny sex, this does produce a profound change of a countercultural type. 

Another word for it: New Age. the longer term: age of Aquarius. People were experimenting with various utopian models, constructing small groups experimentally which were considered New Age types. How to create experimental types that might survive the aftermath of a general nuclear war. 

60 Greatest Conspiracies: Was this whole trend continued after Dulles’ 
departure? 

LaROUCHE: He was not the controlling factor. I wouldn’t make him the evil black widow spider. He was part of it. The operation goes way back. But in the United States this particular operation goes to about 1938. The Nazis were operating in the 1930s out of Hollywood and elsewhere with an occult astrology racket kind of intelligence operation. 

At that point the Huxley operation out there which is already established, 
the marijuana operation and so forth in the 1930s, was already hooked up. 
1963 I would say was a watershed year for explosion of this thing, around 
the LSD, Beatles proliferation. And then you have another one in recent 
years where explicit Satanism has really exploded.

CryptoBeast #19 – American Messiah: The True Origins of the Grateful Dead with Chip Wood, Robert Forte and Joe Atwill

Bob Weir, back left; John Perry Barlow, front right

This is quite an incredible story, and I’d like to sincerely thank Chip for choosing my channel to break it on.

Please contribute to Chip’s GoFundMe, which will help him finish and publish his book.

Let us know what you think in the comments, and any questions you want me to ask Chip in the next interview. Diehard Deadheads may be outraged to learn their favorite band is a psyop, others who have followed the research of myself, Dave McGowan, Joe Atwill, Jan Irvin and many others before us may not find the material such a shock.

Previous show with Robert and Joe discussing John Perry Barlow and Timothy Leary:

Robert Forte’s obituary for John Perry Barlow, who passed away in 2018

Included in this post is some of Chip’s writing and photos. At the end I will add some more from my own research collection. I have purchased the Fountain Valley School yearbooks for 1963 and 1964 and can confirm that Barlow, Weir, and Chip Wood all appear together in the 1963 yearbook.

Chip’s publicizer profile is a good introduction:

Chalmers Benedict Wood II

Three months after “Chip” is created, when he is the size of a three inch banana and his “eye buds” are forming, his mother tries to commit suicide. The rest of his gestation is “distressed” and he is born premature with his left eye points up & to the extreme left. (strabismus) 
His unpleasant mother is greatly disturbed, and cried that Chip is a spawn of Satan sent to ruin her comfortable and wealthy diplomatic life. But Chip’s father, a young super star diplomat in the Marshall Plan, gives Chip his love, and takes him to London for many dangerous eye operations. They play “Light & Dark” baby games together, and become very close with a near-psychic ability to communicate. His father tells him a million times: “You may have a bad eye, but your brain is just fine!” Chip believes his father, and soon teaches himself how to build flying model airplanes by self-education. 


When leaving Brussels for Manila during the Hukbalahap Rebellion there, Chip’s father is afraid the Europeans will believe America will forget Europe and their great dream to change into a war-free European Union. To assuage their leaders of these fears at his farewell garden party, Chips father persuades him to play Mannequin Piss on a pedestal to everyone’s amusement. It is Chip’s diplomatic debut.


After contracting Polio in Manila, Chip’s family moves to McLean, Virginia, and live in a wonderful house surrounded rolling and beautifully forested hills west of Washington. It becomes Chip’s magic Garden of Eden. When he is nine, in August, 1957, he saves his father’s career by persuading a Vietnamese leader to return to a South East Treaty Organization party in their family home. The leader had become outraged, and demanded the conference immediately end. Nobody could bring the leader “back” to the gathering, and Chips father was faced with becoming “the man who lost Vietnam”, a career killer. Then Chip does a weird rotating left eye trick he had taught himself, and leads the leader back to the party. The next morning Eisenhower hears at his breakfast CIA briefing that “Foreign Service Officer Ben Wood’s retarded son saved the conference with his magic left eye.” Chips family moves to Vietnam where they eventually learn America will soon go to war, lose, and try to use nukes at the end. Chip decides to become a low-profile anthropologist, teacher, and private diplomat. 


One day his first girlfriend suddenly tells him: “OMG, Chip, you are actually smart!” He believes her, and becomes smarter. In May, 1963, Chip creates the logos, name, business & artistic properties for what becomes the band “The Grateful Dead, and entrusts into the hands of Robert hall Weir who later, with Chip’s brother, totally betrays Chip’s interests. In 1966, Chip takes a Topology IQ test and scopes over 160. Chip’s father’s career, he had been Kennedy’s Vietnam adviser, is, after Dallas, destroyed by Johnson. Chip’s acceptance to U. Colorado vaporizes, and he must enter the Army for the war in Vietnam. 


While training in Georgia, Chip meets Hamilton Jordan, and creates for him a plan to make his boss Jimmy president so he can start a Mid East Peace process, recognize China, and win a Nobel. Chip becomes an outstanding military leader, and a decorated combat veteran Green Beret “A” Team Commander. Just before leaving Vietnam, Chip creates a plan for a fellow Black Panther Green Beret from Chicago to go home, and create a champion black basketball player that speaks good English, then a champion black golfer that speaks better English then the golf commentators, and then America’s first black President. It works. 


Back in America, chaos reigns. Chip races Motocross, then enters a yoga monastery. Chip’s father is murdered by interests controlling the revenues of the Grateful Dead Band, and Chip is threatened with murder by Phil Lesh. Chip moves to Nanjing to teach English, and improve Chinese/American relations, and becomes famous there. etc, Etc, ETC !


Chip’s father’s 1991 obituary in the New York Times:


July 2, 1991, Page 00018The New York Times Archives

Chalmers Benedict Wood, a retired Foreign Service officer who served as an adviser to the South Vietnamese Government, died on Thursday at the Medical Center of Princeton, N.J. He was 73 years old and lived in Princeton.

He died of a brain hemorrhage, the funeral home said.

Mr. Wood, a 1940 graduate of Harvard College, joined the Foreign Service in 1947 after serving in the Army Air Force from 1940 to 1945. He was stationed in Brussels and Manila before going to Washington to serve as the State Department’s officer for Greece.

In 1957, he was named second secretary at the United States Embassy in Saigon and from 1959 to 1963 was in charge of Vietnamese affairs at the State Department. From 1964 to 1966 he served as first secretary in London and the next year directed the Cyprus office at the State Department.

Mr. Wood was then senior adviser for Binh Dinh province in Vietnam from 1967 to 1969. He returned to the State Department in 1970 with the office of Philippine affairs and from 1971 to 1974 served in the American Embassy in Wellington, New Zealand, as deputy chief of mission and charge d’affaires. Then he became a consultant on energy research and development.

He is survived by his wife, Patricia; two sons, Ramsay and Chalmers, and two daughters, Felicity and Penelope.

Chip’s brother Ramsay was also connected to the Harvard Psychedelic Project in the days of Timothy Leary and Henry Murray (OSS), which was involved in several of the 149 different subprojects of the joint British-US MKULTRA operation. Ramsay lives in London and is a Sufi priest. It is interesting that his Wikipedia page talks quite a bit about Lawrence Lessig, who was a close friend of John Perry Barlow. They were involved in setting up Harvard’s Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society. Barlow talks about Lessig in his memoir, and even Chip gets a brief mention.

Mother American Night: My Life in Crazy Times by [Barlow, John Perry, Greenfield, Robert]

Chip Wood:

Included, “Ben’s Bacon” re how I got the GD gig later. After that SEATO gathering, all sorts of folks came down to my basement model airplane shop to talk “mutual” shops. One was Major General Edward G. Lansdale, my “Uncle ED”, life mentor from Manila in 1950, and later Director Eilliam Egan Colby, “Uncle Bill”, whom I met in Saigon in 1958.  

 Also included “Ed & Maya” re how I profiled the right Asian American virgin nerd-girl to design the wall. Ed found her, and she did very VERY GOOD. And with about 140,000,000 having visited and shed tears there, they might be interested in my yarn. We shall see. Thanks for your interest.

 With daughters. The girls are all right!

PERSONAL  BACKGROUND. 1947-1963:

Because my arguing gold-diggging Mom traumatically near-killed herself and me when I was three months insider her just as my eye-buds were forming, I was born walleyed, and thought retarded.

As an infant I went under the knife for deadly frightening eye operations in London during which I thought I was dying. Then I would wake up in post op blind with both eyes heavily bandaged, drugged to the nines, and Dad holding my hands gently singing old sea shanties: “In Dublin’s fair city, where the girls are so pretty, I first set my eyes on sweet Molly Malone…”  We became very close even though I couldn’t yet even talk.

After my operational frights, and I could see again, I became a silent, unhappy, and autistic. So clever Dad took me to a Marshall Plan funded classical music concert for wounded WWII vets.

We were just three rows back center, the orchestra almost in touching distance. The first two pieces were somber yet growing, and Dad showed me how to wave my arms about as was the conductor. I responded, the only child there. Dad must have made a donation or something beforehand because the conductor and orchestra would occasionally look at me, smile, and a few even waved baby style.  I was mesmerized, standing in my seat, and happily became interactive with them. Near by folks were amused. The band was deeply involved emotionally with the entire audience, the wounded, halt, lame, dispirited, homeless, all, and were playing their hearts out for us. Then Dad, grinning very big, shook me like a rag doll me with a big “AH-HA!” gesture, and the orchestra launched into Beethoven’s Fifth.

I was thunder and lightning struck to the depth of my bones for life. Words fail: I was a pre-verbal child. But the adult phrase “exploding in a supernova of reborn from the dead by love of life” are reasonable.  When we were all leaving after the last of many concert hall shaking encores, many were crying determined to rebuild worn torn Europe immediately, and make our world a better place. Me crying too, and Dad took me home to bed where I dreamed infant dreams of God only know what all. So is it any wonder what I first sketched when designing the logos for the band Dad gave me permission to create in May, 1963?

Ben’s Bacon

                                    Ben’s Bacon  DRAFT

In August, 1957, my childhood drew to a close. Dad was asked by Ike and both Dulles brothers, one running the Central Intelligence Agency, and the other the Department of State, to go to little Vietnam on the other side of our world and stop a looming war there. Dad was to try to avoid that potential fiasco because many nations and the Vatican feared such it could lead to a disastrous global thermonuclear conflict. He was to develop trusting liaisons with South Vietnam’s President Diem, and committed back channels communications with Ho Chi Minh in North Vietnam as Roosevelt had during World War Two when “Uncle Ho” had fought with us against the Japanese, and saved our pilots shot down in the jungles.

Such was Dad’s bacon and eggs. He had become quietly loved throughout Europe during the Marshall Plan as a super star young diplomat able to charm birds off trees, slide fat envelopes of his own cash over or under a table in two shakes of a lamb tail, and solve a vexing Cold War problem to the East by the third shake. We as a family had all joined into the passion of that amazing era. We were enchanted as most everyone there was amid the shocking ashes of World War Two which still smelled of death, and the still reverberating echoes of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki nuclear bomb episodes in Japan. All of us were determined “to make our world into a better and wiser place!”

Dad’s dream was to be appointed our American Ambassador to Paris, as had been his friend and mentor David K. Bruce*. That was Dad’s bacon. That he spoke fluent French was his eggs, and that he had majored in European History back in the old days at Harvard before serving in Europe in WWII, was his hot morning coffee. Dad was great.  

Prior to his departure, a large delegation of powerful Vietnamese and their wives came to Washington for a crucial South East Asia Treaty Organization conference. But for two frustrating weeks it had become a difficult and unhappy gathering in the steaming summer Washington heat. So, for a little holiday, the delegates and their wives were invited by Dad out of their secret bolt hole hotels, and into our home to relax, refresh themselves in our cool and rolling forested hills west of Washington, and personally get to know “A Real American Family!” They were delighted.

After the Secret Service had inspected our home for dangers etc, and radioed to the police our home was “safe”, the Vietnamese delegates arrived in a long procession of black government sedans. It was my job to take the wives up to my room, and show them all the little things that made up the life of a real live American boy. That had long been my designated junior diplomatic family job: Charmer Chip.

The slender wives, the very cream of Vietnam’s womanhood, dressed in their long and colorful traditional diaphanously svelte Vietnam Ào Dài dresses, were for stunned ten year old me the most charming and beautiful creatures ever to walk this earth. So after all the introductions on our front porch, I lead them upstairs to my bedroom, sat them all on my bed, and made my best junior diplomatic welcoming speech: “Dear Ladies of Vietnam, welcome into my family home, and my American life. Please ask me ANY question you wish. Please! Do not be shy! I am here with you, and at your service! Those are my favorite pictures. There is Davey Crocket and his famous long rifle ‘Betsy’, that’s a B-52 taking off with JATO rocket assist, that’s a romantic castle in Scotland…” And so it went, the hidden switch on my reading light, my study desk and Potomac school books, my short wave radio for listening to anywhere in the world, through the clothes in my dresser and closet, and so on through everything, which they examined as if detective and scientists. They “Oood, Ahhed”, chattered among themselves, and the Leading Lady asked their questions, such as which was my favorite book, and could they please see my shoes? By the time I had shown them everything right down to the toothbrushs in my bathroom, and I had answered all their questions, we were never to be forgotten friends for life.

So I took them to our kitchen for their coup de grâce*: a just carefully made, perfectly salted, buttered, touch of sugar southern styled whipped to fluffy cream steaming bowl of mashed potatoes. Our very American made General Electric Triple Whip Maschine Oder Ehrfurcht Und Wunder was whipping the creamed potatoes threateningly as I quickly dipped my practiced finger in between the whirling blades for a hot dollop of deliciousness to my mouth, and motioned for them to do the same.

It was our calculated family kitchen-trick with guests: frighten them a little, then delight them. It would be a little memory they would take home to Vietnam, and tell friends about. The wives were genuinely frightened, shrinking back in alarm. They had never in their lives seen such a dangerous kitchen machine whipping away like a brazen gallon-sized dragon of unforgivingly hard white and chromium American steel. Naturally, I stepped boldly up to the menacing monster as Almighty God Zeus would to slay another lady-killing Dragon, reached up my manly United States arm, and switched it off.

The wives hands darted up to cover their mouths, hiding their gasps of relief. So I turned it on again, took the Leading wife’s dainty hand, guided it up to the switch, and made her turn it off. Pink rushed to her cheeks, always a good sign with females, and she tittered like a Nightingale in moonlight.

After much chatter, we all dipped in for a mutual nibble, looked all around at each other, raised our dolloping fingers to our mouths, and tasted together as one. Their eyes grew large, squeals of delight blossomed all-round, and our mutual amities were forever thereafter engraved upon the Harmonies of Heaven’s Mandate. Then they rushed out to drag in strict order their husbands, and school them about their next family American made acquisition. [Vietnamese wives have more in-family power than most Westerners realize. For example, the legend of Cinderella’s Magic Fairy God Mother came from Vietnam to the West via night time fireside travel stories along China’s Silk Road. Centuries later during our foolish war there, I was always peculiarly lucky as if by the Magic of a secret Fairy Godmother.]    

Ahhh, Diplomacy when it is right and good! A while later everyone was gathered on our north porch overlooking the majestic Potomac River far below. Cocktails, drinks, refreshments, or snacks were in all hands. The mood shifted, became more optimistic, and the possibility the conference could succeed seemed in reach. Everyone was smiling, a few laughing lightly, the clink of glasses touching steady, Dad was pleased, and I so proud of him. Up in the forest around our home a breeze stirred the leaves in the treetops as murmurings and whisperings in the blue sky’s sunshine.  

Suddenly, the large Vietnamese political “Great Leader” became outraged because of a misunderstanding, and demanded the whole conference come to an end immediately. He stalked out to the edge of our lawn, turned his back on everyone, and folder up his arms in anger. This was a diplomatic disaster for Dad because he would be blamed for “loosing Vietnam” for the rest of his diplomatic career! Dad and several others went out to ask the leader to please return to the conference, but he refused. Dad and I were very close, and I could see he was worried, and even frightened. I had never seen that before!

It shocked me deeply! Dad was my greatest hero. I couldn’t understand it. So I went to him. He was walking hurriedly back and forth in our living room inside from our porch where everyone was standing in rigid silence. He was looking as I had never seen before. I stood in trembling alarm waiting for him to recognize me. Surprisingly quickly, he suddenly stopped, and looked at me. “Yes Chip?” he asked. “May I try?” He looked at me as if I was an alien just blasted in from the Alpha Centauri star system. Then he suddenly laughed, threw up his arms, and said, “Well, EVERYTHING else has failed! So why not? Certainly Chip. You go try!”

And thus I embarked upon my first solo international diplomatic escapade! I knew I had three diplomatic weapons no one else there had. (1.) I was ten years old, and I knew from long family experience it is foolish, and even politically dangerous for any big leader to abuse a charming child in front of wives and witnesses. (2.) I had heard stories about the prisoners of war in Asia recounting: if you sang, and acted crazy doing interesting and weird things with your body, an Asian might wonder whether you were possessed by The Divine, and treat you well. And (3.) quite secret, I could do a trick with my eyes that shocked adults, and made my friends roll on the floor with laughter. I had become frustrated with my birth-defective left eye. When tired, my left eye would wander up and away to my left, and I would be teased mercilessly: “Hey wall-eyed retard!” So after weeks of practice in front of a mirror, I had taught myself to keep my right eye still while moving my left eye in circles. Like the Devil’s evil magic, I could look into your eyes with my right eye, and at the same time make my left eye go around and around in big circles! I had once played the trick to a mean old aunt of a primitive religion, and she had jumped back, and squeaked in horror: “Get thee away from me Satan!” Then she had run away. It was so cool!

So I ran down to my basement workshop, got my best model airplane glider, ran out to him with it, and launched it so it floated by right in front of him. He glanced at me, grunted, and looked away embarrassed. He had never been buttonholed by an American kid when angry, and he knew danger when he saw it. I attacked again, launching my airplane right by him. “Wouldn’t you like to fly my airplane with me?” I persisted in my most charming and musical voice.

   He looked at me, so as quick as I could in order to hold his attention, I started explained the rudiment of aviation. “You see Sir, I made this glider myself from Balsa wood and glue. This tail-plane area is twenty three percent of the wing area, the wing has a nine to one span-to-cord ratio with eight degrees of dihedral for stability, and the plane’s balance point is forty percent back from the leading edge, which I can adjust with play-clay here on the nose”. I pointed at it. “Because balance is a key to controlled flight, just like Confucius said: balance is very important! Isn’t it just SO interesting!?”

His eyes widened slightly, and he looked at me with sufficient surprise to forget his anger. We looked deep into each other’s eyes for two heartbeats, and before he could remember his anger and look away, I stepped closer, looked harder into his eyes, and said:

“Dear Sir, won’t you PLEASE come back to my father’s party? It’s  for you!” I put a worried look on my face. “If you don’t come back Sir, my father will lose his job, and then we won’t be able to afford the expensive surgical operation I need…” And, keeping my right eye glued between his eyes, I started making my left eye go around in the biggest circles I could.  “…and then I won’t be able to go to a good school, and get the education I need to be a great diplomat like you and my father! Please Sir?”

He instantly drew in his breath with an “Oh!” of shock as he stepped back from me. Quick as I could, I stepped forward again, grabbed him politely by his wrist like a policeman slapping cuffs on a perp, and pulled. “Please?!!” And he came! So I took his big hand in mine, and lead him back up to our porch as a wayward lamb, back where eyes swelled, mouths fell agape, his giggling twinkling-eyed wife tittered anew, whispered wagers on my gambit were won and lost, and Dad rushed forward to receive him.

I hurried away as if busy with other family chores. I knew that would create the best diplomatic impression because it would give everyone the freedom to say all sorts of wonderful things about me they wouldn’t say if I stayed for their praise. And, it made it impossible for the Great Leader to get angry when it to dawned on him he had been bamboozled by a ten year old retard

That evening Dad admitted I had “…done good”, and winked at me. Saving Ben’s Bacon had been fun, and that night I dreamed of him our Ambassador in Paris. I later heard, though it was probably just another amusing Washington DC cocktail story, that the next morning, just as President Eisenhower was sipping his steaming hot breakfast coffee, his morning CIA briefing officer told him, timing his words carefully, exactly how the conference had been saved, and a possible global thermonuclear war averted by the spin of “Foreign Service Officer Ben Wood’s son Chip, and His Magic Left Eyeball”, and the President of the United States of America, the most powerful man in the world, spilled hot coffee all over his lap.

Uncle Ed  &  The Girl at Yale

                                     by Chalmers  Wood  3/18

It started when I was a kid reading Confucius. His thinking seemed more advanced in the long term than our zero sum Roman Empire based stuff. Rome had fallen. The English Empire was teetering. Dad and I discussed it at length. We were extremely close, our mutual love and trust beyond doubt. Dad introduced me to Edward G. Lansdale about ‘51 in Manila when I was five. Before Ed came to our home for dinner, Dad said he was unhappy because someone back in Washington had made trouble for him. I was the family charmer. Dad asked me: “Chip, can you please make Ed feel good again about America?”

It went well. Ed was a genuine American hero. Soon he was bouncing me on his knee, blowing great harmonica, and telling fantastic stories  about Jap Lieutenant Hiroo Onoda up in the hills still fighting WWII. Ed was a great subtle win/win Confucian Christian American guy with music. “Uncle Ed”! He’d squelched the Hukbalahap Rebellion two days before its getgo because he spent a lot of time out humping the bush making real friends among all comers while not abusing their young women etc. So the locals had told him what was going down.

Then some wannabee back in Washington boasted about Ed’s secret Huk exploits with names, and they were soon murdered back out in the Philippine’s bush. I could feel he’d been somehow wronged when we first met. Something bad. Later when I heard all, it cautioned me about American field service, and going private became a thought. We are a culturally young & mixed nation, with only about 11% the time learning by directly experience re national cultural developments compared to old China. It tells. To my thinking: learning by direct experience often beats book learning, and both is best.

While in Vietnam (’68-’69) as a Special Forces Lieutenant, my de facto job was (a.) planning with both Vietnams their obvious eventual

unification,  their developmental future entry into world trade, creating domestic and foreign reserves, and the so on get rich stuff. That went with extreme subtly, while (b.) I went about more openly under the cover and security of Uncle Bill Colby’s killer Phoenix Program while (c.) appearing to be a normal psyops guy, Ed’s specialty.  [I had met “Uncle Bill” William E. Colby in old Saigon in ’58] That sounds unusual, but I’d known the Viets for a decade, and they knew me from childhood, especially the elite wives, and they had  more direct power in their families than any American ever knew. In fact, the Cinderella and her Fairy God Mother folk tale came from Vietnam to Europe by fireside stories carried along China’s bygone Silk Road.

The only danger for me came from American Army officers trying to use me in some hopeless WWII based scheme, which were countless in that utterly different war. Late in my tour I chatted with a Black Panther Special Forces NCO from Chicago, and persuaded him America needed a Black President. For amusements I scootered around up in the hills on a trusty little Honda 90 in black pajamas: to light to pop road mines, and to local looking to worry about getting shot the Viet Cong. A few of my Special Forces buddies were outraged, but I just didn’t care. We would soon lose in Vietnam, at which point it could go thermonuclear worldwide. I met with friendly Viets all about, we usually had tea together, and I always promised to return when all was over. “Would you like your children to go to American Universities?” Piece of cake with the Viets back then.  

A decade later I was in NYC when quietly slipped a train ticket to Washington to meet a taxi. The taxi drove me to the Viet Vet Memorial design competition where I was received as a VIP without explanation, and ushered through a look see. Then to McLean, Virginia, told to go in a home’s front door, and there sat Uncle Ed in his easy chair apologizing about “The girl.”  “What girl?” “The girl in Phu Tuc, the one you turned down.” “That girl?!” “Yes. The next guy disappeared, and spent four years a POW. We got him home with ruined feet. Sorry ‘bout that. Teaches down at NC State now”  “Oh.”

The plan had been for me to be the White King of the Radé and Jaré Montagnard mountain tribes with the village chief’s exquisitely eager fourteen year old darkmoon-eyed butterscotch-skinned daughter my Princess, and I was to lead them all out to defeating dastardly evil communizzm worldwide. Ed had been screwed into it by higher ups in the Johnson administration. [Johnson had destroyed Dad’s diplomatic career for briefing Ike and Jack we could not win in Vietnam, studiously ignored Ed’s sage advice, my University Colo acceptance and hoped for career had vanished, and into the Army to war I was ushered.] We chatted for a while about old times. Charming Ole Uncle Ed! He was The Man. Then to business!

“What did you think of the entries?” “They are all horrible, bitter, blaming, self-centered, even hateful. They will all only just rub more salt in the wound, every last one of them.”  long silence  “What do you think we should do?”  I was shocked. That was a huge national question of global political import. I subsided back in my chair, and stared up at the blank ceiling, dazed and abstracted… Slowly it came…

…“Well, we are not able to heal the wound…  we are just too immature a culture to understand how to do it… It must come from an older and more experienced culture… Not quite Europe…  Too many foolish wars…  Asia…   China…   Yes China… The wiser birthings of new dynasties after catastrophic failures… An educated Chinese family that has experienced utter defeat, and recovered well…  A Chinese American family that lost everything in the ’49 revolution, came here, and has done well…  With a daughter that became their new dream of hope for their family future… A girl of pure heart, a virgin who naturally knows she is the new hope of family, and IS that quite happily…  naturally, deeply, instinctively…   who studies Art, Architecture, Symbolism, Legends, History, Philosophy…  An undistractedly kind female nerd… Not West Coast..  Not central…  East Coast…  Highly educated…  Not Harvard, to big, rich, corrupt… No…   Yale… Yes Yale… Architecture school, The Yale Architecture School Ed…   Look There!…  You find her Ed!”  Suddenly I was angry. “Just get her down on site like a normal class assignment, no fuss no muss…  like turning loose a young deer into a park…  Then leave her alone…  Wait till she comes back on her own…   And she will!…  Help her Ed, maybe without her even knowing it”…  I stood up exhausted and irate. We stared into each other’s eyes. His jaw loosened slightly, eyes widening. We understood each other. We were Old Hands, and I was HOT:  “She’ll know what to do Ed, Because We Sure As Hell Don’t!”  

We lost 58,000 American, and 3,000,000 Vietnamese friends in that unwise war. It could have exploded into a global thermonuclear war as the Cuban Missile Crisis almost had save exactly one (1) Russian submariner. We looked at each other silently. Old Hands. I went out the door to the waiting taxi, back to NYC, and that was that.

CryptoBeast #18: Truth in an Age of Alt-Media Agents and Psyop Shills – with Special Guests Vahid Razavi and Joe Atwill

Joe, Vahid and I have more in common than decades in the tech industry: we have all recently been accused of being CIA agents by Jan Irvin. We talk about this and the wider problem in the alt-media of “everyone’s a shill” serving the divide-and-conquer agenda, which takes the focus away from real research.

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

Source: Engadget | Illustration by D. Thomas Magee

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?

[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.

[QD003] Defango Invited Thomas From Cicada Into Discord, Brower Says They Lost the Discord

[QD004] Defango is Turdbo and Brower is NOT Dreamcatcher

[QD028] Defango 2019 Version:

Cicada 3301 Created Q?

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:

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.
