Q Part 3 Defango Lies Again

Over on one of the battlegrounds in the LARPWars that has been well covered here, the Defango channel, the past few days have seen an earth-shaking LARP explosion.

This has happened as I’m in the middle of writing a huge post about Bill Gates, Jason Goodman, Jeffrey Epstein, and Isaac Kappy’s Media Matrix.

[updated version, names in red not added by Isaac Kappy]

Although they may at first seem unrelated, there is a staggering web of connections between these players and events. Defango is certainly one of the main characters, so initially I tried just adding this post to an already monster story. Instead I’m breaking that story up into at least two parts and releasing this part first. Things keep happening, events and information keep unfolding in real time. I’m struggling to keep up with the story and I’ve been on it for years, thousands of hours now. I will do my best to break it down and fill you in, stay tuned for even more that’s coming.


#LARPWars Escalating

I predicted an escalation of the #LARPwars as we head into the 2020 election, and that is indeed coming true.

Modern LARPing is not just individuals shitposting for lulz. It is an organized tactic of psychological warfare being employed to attain political objectives…as I’ve been trying to inform the public about for years. Money, cryptocurrency, electronics equipment and casino chips are changing hands to fuel these LARPs. See Silicon Valley’s Secret Weapon Part 7 – Social Engineering on the Electronic Frontier, Latest Weapon in the InfoWar – Data Maps , as well as LARPWars Parts 1 2 3 4 5 6 and Q Part 1 2 3.

It is very interesting to see these operations being cast into the light of day. Pawns falling before knights and queens topple? Is JB the first of a wave of “Info War Suicide Bombers”, #FakeMAGA who will now blow their personas up to try to discredit whoever they formerly supported?

QAnon: How the conspiracy theory spawned by a Trump quip got so ...

JB Exposes the LARP Operations

Defango has claimed to be the creator of Q, with “King of Fake News” Jack Posobiec. These claims were debunked by Burners.me 16 months ago, again 7 months ago, and once more in January 2020.

Defango’s credibility took another significant blow this week when LARPer James Brower aka JB aka “Two Scoops” confessed that the “Discord Logs” held up in September 2018 by Posobiec, Defango and others as “proof” of the creation of Q were indeed faked.

JB verified that he was “the real JB” by calling into Defango’s show and speaking with Manuel and Glen Herman, formerly of MAGA Coalition. Several other people have confirmed that it was indeed James Brower, aka JB speaking.

JB deleted his Twitter account almost immediately, fortunately we saved much of it:

JB then started answering questions from the Twitter audience, naming names.

In LARPWars Part 5 we showed evidence of Defango recruiting these “low grade trolls” for LARP Missions from their Discord logs:

The person who originally shared these Discord logs publicly, Arturo Tafoya from Mexico aka Lestat aka Cheshire3301, has since taken them down. He admits to taking money and doing projects with Defango, but says that it was for a cryptocurrency project where he did work for someone else and Defango took a large amount of Lestat’s share for himself. Read about it in LARPWars Part 5, I saved the logs there.


JB’s Tweet Storm

A lot from JB was picked up by Google WebCache and archived. I will share everything saved, then discuss JB’s video with Defango.


JB’s Confession and Interview

JB took to the Defango and Leppo (Aquino PSYOP) show to tell his story. The start of this episode contains JB’s “coming clean” Periscope message.

To be fair JB did reach out to me via DM to say hello, I didn’t ask him to be on my channel but I guess he was offering me an opportunity. I commend him for coming forward with the truth, we have to support truth tellers and whistleblowers. It takes a lot in the modern age to admit publicly that you did wrong things which you regret.

It’s probably better for him to be on the #2 LARPer of the year’s channel to describe the LARP they played together to infiltrate and discredit a movement of Patriots encouraged to do their own research and not trust Fake News.

I’m told the video was scrubbed to remove some sort of bust-up with Doug Stewart. I haven’t seen that so I won’t comment on it…but if this rumor is true, it must have been juicy for them to edit it out.

Kudos to Janon for everything he’s shown of this story. He’s really dug and brought forth a great deal of evidence:

Doc_Holliday is allegedly Thomas Schoenberger

InfoWar Suicide Bombers

Was this the plan all along? LARPers as InfoWar suicide bombers? Infiltrate the #truth community, only to betray it when the Scooby Doo mask is ripped off and you realize you got tricked by low-life conmen.

You think they’re the greatest patriot of all time, creators of Q, whistleblowers, #MAGA to the core, part of the Trump campaign…and then it turns out you’ve been had, it was #All4aLARP. They were tricksters out for lolz, you were tricked into being just one of their herd of lolcows. Maybe you even believed in them so much you sent them a donation, superchat, subscription, or bought a t-shirt or coffee mug. You don’t just feel betrayed by the trickster, the damage is much greater: you feel the very things that made you like the movement enough to engage were themselves a betrayal. This is gaslighting at its most brutal, with no regard to the mental health consequences for the victims – or even the perpetrators, if you believe JB’s recent contrition.

Sure, the LARPer may discredit themselves once they come out…but they can always adopt a new persona, switch to the other side politically, repent with a mea culpa and perhaps a twelve step program then reinvent themselves. Or go on the Defango channel for a round of hi-fives.


Who Introduced the Spoofers?

Defango said JB’s faking the Discord logs cost him his friendship with Jack Posobiec. “If the logs were faked it means that JB and Doug Stewart lied to me and Glen”. Glen Herman, formerly of MAGA Coalition, dismisses Posobiec as a LARPer and “cable news”. He says he knows Jack on a personal basis, that Posobiec is best friends with Roger Stone and “these are not the kind of people to be trifled with…they were up to various kinds of trickster tricks in 2016 and I know Defango was too”.

Defango said that Justin McConney (who taught Trump to Tweet) was the one who “brought me those assholes” and that OANN “decided not to go with anything I told them about”. Glen believes nobody instructed Posobiec to cover QAnon, instead the LARPer Posobiec would have had to fight his bosses to get a Q story on air.

Defango claims to know Justin McConney personally, and that McConney was the one who introduced him to JB, Microchip and their “QSlayer” LARP

Defango screams to JB “why would you do this to me? Why? Why would you use me right after these other fucks used me? My story…I knew something was up from the beginning when you guys dropped those other videos I thought there was really no way that anyone would spend the time to actually fake that shit”.

Defango obviously does not realize that this statement, made by him on his own channel, completely proves false his story to have been one of the people in Discord creating Q with these guys.

He’s saying now just that the logs were faked, which I have to credit Unirock for proving beyond a shadow of a doubt – and Praying Medic too.

Did Posobiec get catfished by these LARPers? Or is he part of the team behind these psychological warfare operations against domestic targets?

Jack Posobiec told us there was no such thing as chat logs on XBox and PlayStation, because games don’t have chat. This was wrong. Then he told us that Microchip’s Discord logs were real, and proved the origins of Q as related to AntiFa and the Luther Blissett collective. This was wrong.

These people are disinformation agents.

QAnon warned us about “Paytriots”, particularly naming MAGA Coalition.

Source: QMap.pub

This led to a declaration from MAGA Coalition that they were going to “Sue Q”, which seemed strange given their relationship to Defango.

Praying Medic has his own links to the foundation of MAGA Coalition, and along with Tracy Beanz seems to have been part of the “JTF-MAGA” (see Is This Intelligence Group Responsible for the Qanon Conspiracy Theory”) and other teams that are behind much of the social media LARPing machine that was used to catapult the #QAnon psyop into the mainstream.


Turdbo, or Just a Turd?

All along Defango has been saying that he created Q and was one of the characters in Discord when all this happened “turdbo”. Now he has been featured by fellow #QSlayer Will Sommer as a “notorious Internet provocaturd” in the Daily Beast’s article Right Wing Activists Discussed Wiretapping Seth Rich’s Family.

We have another member of this crew, “Spiccy”, confessing to being Turdbo.

When Microchip recreated the Discord he spent a full day creating an app. He is a mobile app developer in real life:

The date of this chat between JB & Microchip (Sep 2018) matches up with their #MuhDiscord LARP with Defango, Jack Posobiec and Jason Bermas. It’s possible that Bermas/We Are Change was merely a “useful idiot” in promoting this #QSlayer LARP, exploited by the others; I note without judgement his long history with InfoWars since at least 2007.

JB said that he was surrounded by a group of people where “disinformation is how you get ahead” from 2016-2020. They were told “Never Trumpers and the Left are doing this” to justify their shady operations. They did things that weren’t illegal, but were unethical. He has screencapped a lot of what happened in their chats and was ready to go public, but he hasn’t “turned total AntiFa like some have”. He specifically names Cassandra Fairbanks, Jack Posobiec, Mike Cernovich, Jacob Wohl and Mike Tokes as disinformation operatives of the worst kind.


Guccifer, Guccifer 2.0…Mafia 2.0?

JB says that Guccifer was a real Russian hacker. Why even bring the name up? Seems like he may have been hinting at his involvement with the Guccifer 2.0 psyop.

There have been attempts to link Guccifer 2.0 to alt-right mastermind Chuck Johnson.

However it seems more likely to have originated within the DNC, to cover up devastating actual leaks of their emails to WikiLeaks.

See Guccifer 2.0’s Hidden Agenda (May 21, 2020)

From G2Space, May 11 2020:

We’ve learned that CrowdStrike never had evidence of the DNC emails being exfiltrated, that CrowdStrike’s efforts at the DNC didn’t seem to prevent hacking or involve monitoring of network activity and that the APT29 malware CrowdStrike discovered doesn’t appear to have been the malware that the FBI were looking for in 2015.

Guccifer was a real hacker, he was Romanian and did jail time for hacks which included establishing Colin Powell and Tony Blair’s attendance at Bohemian Grove. Hillary Clinton consulted with Powell on how to run a secure Blackberry system outside of the State Department – the DNA of the Awan Bros/George Webb operation. Alex Jones famously snuck into Bohemian Grove and obtained video of their event; Kevin Spacey’s scheming political character Frank Underwood attended a Grove-like ceremony before becoming President.

Guccifer 2.0 was a LARP. The FBI never inspected the DNC server, and the company hired to do so, Crowdstrike, recently admitted they had no evidence that there was any Russian hacking and the evidence they did have suggested a local file copy, such as to a thumb drive. George Webb (speaks Russian) used to work alongside Crowdstrike founder Dmitri Alperovich (born in Moscow). Both men worked for John McAfee, whose software is deeply embedded in intelligence agencies and the military. Just 2 weeks after George Webb and Jason Goodman launched their “Dirty Bomb Maersk Memphis” unconventional cyber-attack, the Maersk shipping line was hit with a more conventional cyber-attack, a virus…originating out of Ukraine.

Propaganda operation Voice of America promoted Crowdstrike’s report by criticizing it

Crowdstrike were caught in a previous case of “disputed intelligence” involving, you guessed it, Ukraine. They came out with a report about the FANCY BEAR system they attributed to Russia – the same one they blamed for the DNC hacks. It’s in the Mueller Report. They were accused of misrepresenting information by an influential UK thinktank and the Ukraine Defense Minister. Later Crowdstrike had to walk back key details of their Ukrainian reporting and clarify that they are based in Silicon Valley not Ukraine.

Ukraine was where Malaysian Airlines flight MH-17 was shot down, following the mysterious vanishing from radar of their MH-370 – allegedly with 20 executives from radar and defense company Freescale Semiconductor on board. Freescale is a division of the Carlyle Group, whose shareholders include the Bush family and the Bin Ladens. The Malaysian leader had been publicly critical of a particular country, and there were many links between the mysterious two airliner disappearances, said country, and even the Rothschilds who were once declared the owners of said country and even built its pyramid-shaped Supreme Court on Rothschild St. LARPer Field McConnell of Abel Danger, frequent guest on Jason Goodman’s channel and recently jailed in Wisconsin for online harassment and extradited to Florida, was involved in the Malaysian Airlines story. He went on Crowdsource the Truth to reveal that the attack on the USS Liberty was an American “self harming” operation launched by Lyndon B Johnson. Typically, evidence for this was not presented; even Haaretz had doubts about this story, noting that Israel apologized and paid compensation. These facts don’t meet the standard of “truth” on Crowdsource the Truth…but I digress.

I note in passing that the “Russian Troll Farm” we hear so much about, IRA, was exposed as a US intelligence operation by The Saker.

The Mueller report refers to servers in Arizona. Do we know any “hackers” or LARPers who were in Arizona in 2016, may have been connected to the DNC, NGP Van, Seth Rich, Kim Dotcom, John McAfee?


LARP Teams to Infiltrate Q

JB was called #QAnon within a week of the operation’s launch, by Jordan Sather:

How did Sather know?

Brower was making tweeets around the time, hinting that he was Q. This is far from proof, especially given now he’s confessed he was just shitposting.

JB announced on Twitter that Paul Manafort’s phone was tapped at the Trump Tower meeting with Natalia Veselnitskaya, set up by music producer Rob Goldstone, before anyone else. The wiretapping of trump’s campaign manager Manafort has been confirmed by CNN and the Washington Post, but it’s not clear if his phone was used to record the meeting – or how Brower was able to get that information months before everybody else. His tweet was quickly amplified by a now-deleted Medium post written by Jack Posobiec, a good friend of Manafort’s former business partner Roger Stone.

JB describes Twitter “verified chat rooms”, where a large number of participants can be co-ordinate to share information – and, as it turns out, misinformation and disinformation.

This all seems to place Sather squarely on the same side of QAnon as JB, Jack Posobiec, Defango and #MAGA Coalition. By promoting “Q = Brower” from the start, he was promoting the LARP.

Sather was held up to be the “fall guy” for #QAnon on Jim Jefferies’ Comedy Central special. LARPers mix the narrative in with “JFK Junior is alive”, using Appeal to Ridicule to discredit genuine researchers who support the truth-based movement. For the record, Q says junior is dead. This is a red herring like Flat Earth, which was brought up by Sather in this segment.

Sather was also promoting “drinking bleach” before it was a thing.

JB repeats the claim he made previously on Defango’s channel “I fucken love shitposting”. He says Jack Posobiec approached him and others to create fake Facebook groups to get Elizabeth Warren positioned as the Democratic nominee.

Jacob Wohl’s “Cougar Op” seemed to be one of the LARPs created by this #FakeMAGA squad to achieve this objective.


Isis in Las Vegas?

JB was featured on InfoWars as a “former trump campaign official”. He was one of the first people to report on Isis materials being found with the Las Vegas shooting. He admits that this was also a LARP and was not vetted properly by InfoWars.

See Is There a #PedoGate Connection to the 2017 Las Vegas Massacre? The Las Vegas event happened just a few weeks before the birth of #QAnon. Defango linked the two together, saying “I was just at that casino…was it predicted?”. Meaning that he was at the DEFCON hacker conference, where supposedly he launched Q to Dreamcatcher (JB) and Microchip in the presence of Posobiec and “a room full of people with higher level clearances than myself”.

A lot of the 4chan research crowd were not buying the official stories coming out of Las Vegas about this event. Suddenly the boards were swamped with all manner of conspiracy theories and disinformation, trying to disrupt the real research going on. All the LARPers started going on each others’ shows.

In another curious coincidence, Jason Goodman’s frequent guest Joe Napoli was on the scene in Las Vegas when the mass shooting went down at a rival casino group to Sheldon Adelson. MGM has a connection to the Bronfman family, former owners of both MGM (Sr) and Universal Studios (Jr). MGM’s insurance company is paying a $800 million settlement to 2500 people affected by the shooting. Will Napoli get a share of this loot?


“QAnon Creation Story is Totally Not True”

The Great Hacker?

Defango has previously confessed his involvement in “the great hack” which has been linked to the creation of Cambridge Analytica, a group linked to the CNP (Steve Bannon, Mercers) and the Anglo-American establishment. Chavez says he was working for Brittany Kaiser who was running Facebook for Obama’s successful 2008 Presidential Campaign.

We know Defango helped on the Obama campaign. Why was he in New Mexico? Who else was connected to New Mexico and tight with the Clintons?

Was Defango couchsurfing in New Mexico at the Zorro Ranch?


Conclusion

#QAnon was a psyop launched on 4chan. Almost immediately – potentially even before its launch – it was attacked by infiltrators. Defango, JB, Microchip were all trying to say they were the creators of it. Info War suicide bombers, they attach themselves to the alt-right then blow up their personas and laugh at the casualties from over on the left. Feeling good, because #OrangeManBad, #Coronavirus bad, or whatever new outrage they need to justify these behaviors.

I don’t know if JB ever got paid for any of this stuff. But we know Defango did, quite a lot of money, by quite a few people – and he was paying others too. He is not a General in the Info War like Alex Jones, but he’s at least a Sergeant. He’s giving orders to lower-level henchmen. The way Defango was treated by JB suggests that Brower is at least a lieutenant, a rank above Defango and below Microchip.

A bunch of LARPers, throwing cryptocurrency around, hanging out in casinos, political operatives casting themselves as #MAGA while trying to infiltrate movements in order to discredit them. Involved with WikiLeaks, Seth Rich, the Vegas shooting, and many other LARPs. Performing School Plays, yiddish vaudeville. They tell you that they are doing it while they are doing it, black magicians friendly with Michael Aquino casting spells for shekels.

Were these other guys participating in IARPA projects too? Any FBI informants in this bunch? DEA operatives? Asking for a fren.


UPDATE

JB came back, posted some more, and seems to have disappeared again (or maybe he blocked me after this post)

Something Strange About the Google Whistleblower

I did a livestream looking into the involvement of Google whistleblower Zach Vorhies as one of the only witnesses to go to the media about the shooting at YouTube HQ in 2018. This post contains the notes from the show.

Chaos, blood and a heavy police response amid YouTube shootingBy Benjamin Oreskes Michelle Tam, a hostess of Hashes & Brews, a restaurant about a block away from the YouTube headquarters in San Bruno, said around 12:45 p.m. that the streets in the immediate area were filled with police cars and fire trucks.“We see lots of cops and firefighters,” Tam said. “We can’t see any people. It’s just a lot of trucks along the street at the moment.”She said three YouTube employees came in and were visibly shaken.“They came in from a back door,” she said. “They sat down at a table. They were in a daze. One guy, there was a little blood on his head.”Tam said other one of her colleagues gave them a first aid kit and she said one of the YouTube employees said there was a partial fragment of a bullet in her shoe.

BURNILEAKS: Sexual Assaults, Missing Kids and Violent Crime

Something that BMorg are always attempting to hush up are the details of the annual arrests. It used to be reported every year in the Reno Gazette-Journal, but since they appointed dedicated Burning Man beat reporter Jenny Kane that type of coverage has stopped. We have to try to piece the information together however we can.

I filed a FOIA request in January to get the 2017 arrest data from the Pershing County Sheriff’s Office, but so far they haven’t even acknowledged it. Thanks very much to our source DS who sent us the 2015, 2016, and some 2017 information below. The information we received includes the names of all people arrested in 2015 and 2017 and what they were charged with, compiled from the local paper. Don’t panic! We won’t be publishing the names. We hope to get more 2017 information soon.

The official reports confirm a shockingly large number of sexual assaults – 15 in 2015, 11 in 2016 – and way more missing children than were previously reported. The rapes, not prosecuted; the children (thankfully) all found. No wonder BMorg wanted this hushed up. Sexual offenders who fail to register are a recurring problem. Kidnapping, attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, domestic violence, jailbreaks, and celebrities with armed bodyguards are all issues at Black Rock City. Don’t think that just because you’re “home”, that means you are safe – and don’t think for a moment that having a rule “no guns” means there are no guns there.

In fact, the Sheriff specifically states that he does not believe he can provide for the safety of Burners.

BMorg vs PCSO

This has been an ongoing battle for many years. The cops think they should get more money as the festival gets bigger and goes for longer, BMorg thinks they should keep all the money for themselves to give to artists and make the world a better place. BMorg has big lawyers and political clout, they tell the Sheriff where to stick it, so to meet the budget required the Sheriff’s Office feels compelled to arrest and cite more Burners – to make their side of the argument stronger. “Look at all these criminals, our budget’s not big enough!”. Burners who pay $500-$1200 a ticket are thus used as pawns in an argument that people with $40 million per year of ticket money are having with local officials over 50 grand.

Screenshot 2018-05-07 14.13.52

Pershing County normally has a population of approximately 6,800 people within the County.  This population includes approximately 1,600 inmates incarcerated at the [gated community of the] Lovelock Correctional Center.  For this population, the Pershing County Sheriff’s Office has 13 full time Sworn Law Enforcement Deputies, including the Sheriff, to perform all of the duties statutorily mandated for the Sheriff’s Office.  This equates to approximately 1 Deputy for every 400 persons permanently residing in Pershing County, minus those incarcerated. 

During the approximate 10-12 days of the active portion of the Burning Man Festival, the population of just the Festival balloons to upwards of 80,000+ persons.  Still with only the 13 Sworn Full-Time Deputies within the Pershing County Sheriff’s Office.  Based on this population, it would appear the Pershing County Sheriff’s Office would need to have approximately 200 Deputies to provide similar staffing for the visitors to the Burning Man Festival. However, Burning Man provides approximately 800+ ‘Black Rock Rangers’.  These employees of Burning Man are mostly made up of volunteers, some of whom have very limited training, to interact with the population and attempt to mitigate issues before they rise to the level of a Law Enforcement Response.  Some of the Rangers are trained enough to provide a force multiplication, to a limited extent, for Law Enforcement.
