Bear with me, and let’s together consider a scenario: Imagine one day you wake up, turn on the TV, and there is complete pandemonium. The news has just broken that the Trump administration has set up military tribunals; arrested hundreds of members of both political parties; arrested thousands of others outside government; renditioned George Soros; captured Edward Snowden; and seized Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Barry Obama, and John McCain and charged them with treason. Additionally, imagine many of those arrested are charged with child trafficking for sex or organ harvesting, for drug trafficking, and for undermining the sovereignty of the United States. How would the populace react? How would the liberals react? How would the MSM characterize it? Imagine the totality of it.
I think there would be complete chaos. Society would be at the point of coming to a complete standstill, or a revolution, or a societal breakdown.
Most likely, the MSM would be in a full informational warfare stance. They would be characterizing these sweeping actions as dictatorial. They would say that President Trump had arrested the opposition, had lost his mind, was acting extra-Constitutionally, and had directed Sessions to fabricate evidence.
The Democrat Party, certainly, would be saying that Trump had become mentally unstable, that the “resistance” movement must rise up, that people must demand that their Congressmen must remove Trump from the Presidency, and they would basically call for riots.
If anyone arrested was a Republican, like John McCain or Lindsey Graham, the Republicans as well might call for Trump to be removed. The cancer of corruption, treason, selling out America and the Deep State collusion might have spread throughout the Congress.
Trump would have no base – except the majority of the citizens of the US. But those would be hearing the constant lies, propaganda, and disinformation coming from the MSM – perhaps even Fox news. There would be competing voices on the internet, on the radio, on the TV, from the government. How would the average normie know what to believe?
Most sheeple Americans would be confused and distressed. Informed Patriots would be celebrating. Hard Leftist Progs would be preparing to stir up the dregs of society to riot. The MSM would be attempt to focus as much HATE as possible at white conservatives and Trump supporters. The country would fracture. Riots and violence would ensue.
BUT, what if some person or group had chosen a new and untried path? What if, to prepare the sheeple for the shock, some person or group decided to move via the internet to spread the information to the citizens in a way that went around the MSM, went around the official channels, even around the White House?
What if someone or some group decided not to give the information to the public, but to throw bait out to the anti-social, skeptical, independent thinking denizens of the cloistered boards of discredited, offensive, and ignored websites? What if they knew that this was the primordial energy to harness to reveal Truth? What if this board held the eternal curiosity of man to rip the lid off of Pandora’s box?
What if this person or group KNEW that the media would spin the truth into lies, and that any information from the White House would be seen as biased and dubious. What if they foresaw the riots and decided to use the internet to disseminate the information early to prepare the public for the shock?
What if, like a “virally-spread” video, people began to mention to each other about the phenomenon of this intel being left on these discredited boards? What if teenagers and internet savvy adults began to carry this information to their friends and family?
What if all this “intel” began to coalesce at some point into appearing Truthful, even though the puzzles had to be solved by anonymous citizens? What if the “answers” were not given, like pap to infants, but instead had to be researched, decoded, speculated, and found by those interested in solving them?
What if the “answers” and the understanding of the dynamics of such treasonous and evil actions came NOT from the MSM, NOT from the White House, NOT from “talking heads”, but from message boards like 4chan, 8chan, Voat, Gab, and elsewhere. What if the message began to spread even to websites that were oriented around economics? What if the message spread beyond those sites to the general citizenry?
It would seem to me that the SHOCK of the arrests, the misinformation of the MSM, and the inflammatory calls of the Progs would be mitigated and neutralized, because many would be aware ahead of time.
Many would be prepared for the shock, because they would have heard the information from their teenage sons and daughters, from their co-workers, from respected voices on the sites they frequent, and from other websites.
The NOVELTY of it would be attractive. The FAMILIARITY of those telling them would make it trustworthy. The REPETITION of the message from various sources would make it hard to ignore. The ORIGIN of the message would be alluring.
Even those who might disagree with the information or dispute the arrests of those involved might tone down their reactions if their minds were primed to consider the possibilities of treason, child trafficking, or sedition.
The point of this is that the Cognitive Dissonance would be immense in the public. The sudden airing of the repulsive, vile, unthinkable, treasonous, and corrupt truths about the powerful few who run this country might be too much for many to accept. They would default to the programming that they grew up with. They would deny. They would become angry and lash out at the messenger. They could not comprehend and accept the truth if given all at once.
This Socratic and puzzling method of asking questions and tantalizing the fringe autists with intelligence (and truths) only known by the select few could indeed be a method that is genius. It is using the nature of the internet to find almost any information, coupled with the ability of a cohort of driven deviants to communicate instantly across the globe, coupled with the unheard-of releasing of classified intelligence to the public.
Have these three items ever existed together at any point in human history? Has this synchronicity ever been attempted? Have humans ever had this chance? I think not. This is the brilliance of the attempt.
It may be a way to preclude the violence, riots, and bloodshed that might occur after such a shock. It might be the stroke of genius that could only come from the Goodness of God.
IF this is true, and IF this comes to fruition, this may be one of the greatest times to be alive in human history. This might be a revolution that does not involve physical warfare, but INFORMATION WARFARE, such as the kind that got Donald Trump elected. This might be one for the history books.
IF this is true, then our civilization might have actually averted a totalitarian surveillance warfare State where we would have reverted to feudal status – stripped of our rights, stripped of our wealth, and thrown into permanent darkness for the unforeseeable future.
THIS is why I attend to the phenomenon of Q. The audacity and genius of the method is breathtaking. The possibilities are immense. The futures that have been wagered here are daunting. The outcomes are staggering. And the peril of losing is fearsome.
We MUST open the minds of our brethren, our family, and other in any way we can. We MUST help free them from the prison of the propaganda their minds were infused with as they grew. We MUST at least consider the POSSIBILITY that Q is real and truthful, that Q is Military Intelligence.

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has “begun to have very high-level conversations” on rejoining the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
“It’s not a priority at the moment, but it is something the president will consider,” he added. “He’s willing to negotiate… Whether we do multilaterals or we consider going back into TPP, again that’s something that’s on the table.”
Trump repeatedly attacked the TPP deal on the campaign trail and pulled the U.S. out of it soon after he took over early last year. However, last month he expressed openness to rejoining if the terms were improved. Mnuchin told the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Washington that this was significant.
YouTube issued a second strike to Alex Jones’s main channel early Tuesday over a pair of videos related to the Florida school shooting – bringing it perilously close to termination, and loss of one of its main revenue streams, however the second strike was removed hours later for unknown reasons.
The offending videos, “The Truth About Crisis Actors In The Florida Shooting,” and “What Is To Blame For The Florida High School Shooting” have been removed from YouTube, but can be seen here on the Infowars website.
While a second strike restricts a channel from posting new content for two weeks, a third strike can result in a ban from the platform.
This is the second strike applied to your account within three months,” the notice reads. “As a result, you’re unable to post new content to YouTube for two weeks. If there are no further issues, the ability to upload will be automatically restored after this two week period.”
Infowars has referred to the YouTube strikes as a “CNN lobbying campaign,” after CNN reported that they had “identified three similar YouTube videos from InfoWars” which they flagged to YouTube. A YouTube spokesperson responded at the time that those videos were under review.
The Alex Jones Channel, which has over 2.2 million subscribers, first came under fire over a video suggesting that a survivor of the Parkland school shooting, David Hogg, was coached and given lines for interviews with various media outlets following the Valentines Day massacre which left 17 dead.
The video was removed for a violation of YouTube’s “harassment and bullying” policy and the channel was issued a strike.
The video featured a clip of Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg appearing to flub scripted lines – leading many to believe he has been coached on what to say as he tours around the country to promote an aggressive gun control agenda:
YouTube has all but scrubbed this clip of Hogg from its platform.
Earlier in the day, David Hogg shot off a barrage of tweets making fun of Alex Jones – which started off with Hogg telling Jones he wanted to [sic] “come on and clear some of this up because clearly as a shit journalist you can’t clearly“
Common Core poster child fail…
On Friday a Middle East regional CNN network reported that American Sniper Chris Kyle had been killed while embedded with US-backed Kurdish forces in Syria by invading Turkish troops, and the story went viral. Or maybe they meant to say actor Bradley Cooper?
Though priding itself for its brand recognition in setting the agenda for accurate mainstream news and top notch investigative journalism around the globe, CNN has once again embarrassed itself as its sister network, CNN Turk, fell for what should have been an easy to recognize prank. At the end of this week false reports that two US Special Forces members had been killed in Syria while embedded with American-backed Kurdish units fighting in the northwest Aleppo district of Afrin in Syria spread wildly through major Turkish media after CNN Turk reported it.
The only problem is that the identified US soldier purported to be featured in a photo circulating on social media which is the basis of CNN Turk’s story was actually none other than “American Sniper” actor Bradley Cooper. That’s right, as one classic and sadly all too literally serious headline from Newsweek reads – CNN Turkey Reports ‘American Sniper’ Bradley Cooper Killed In Syria, U.S. Military Denies.
Pentagon Forced To Deny CNN’s Story
And yes, the Pentagon was forced to issue a quick and urgent denial of the story through US Coalition spokesman Colonel Ryan Dillon, who said Friday: “Reports of two US-Coalition members killed in Afrin are FALSE. Completely UNTRUE.”
CNN Turkey, which is owned by the Turner Broadcasting System Europe and Doğan Media Group, was fooled into believing the satirical report which appears to have started among pro-Kurdish social media.
However, the prank should have been easy to recognize considering all early social media reports were based on a photograph said to be a US Special Forces member named Eddie Bragdon who went by the Kurdish nom de guerre “Zana Rizgar”. But the photograph was so obviously a shot from the 2014 film, American Sniper, based on the life of the late Navy SEAL veteran Chris Kyle.
According to Newsweek, the fake story began circulating when a pro-YPG account called “Bird Person” tweeted the following on Thursday:
Newsweek: “In what’s believed to be the original claim, an account supportive of the Kurdish YPG reported the death of U.S. Special Forces member Eddie Bragdon, a.k.a. Zana Rizgar, instead of the actual individual pictured: U.S. actor Bradley Cooper in the film ‘American Sniper.’ The user later claimed that the post was intended to be satirical and criticized Turkish media for picking it up literally.”
Amidst the propaganda war now raging between Turkish and pro-Kurdish media as Turkey continues its ‘Operation Olive Branch’ inside northwest Syria, both Turkish nationalists – who celebrated the supposed “deaths” of US troops embedded with Syrian Kurds – and Kurdish sources, promoted the story on social media.
Yet from the moment the story spread social media users were quick to point out the obvious origins of the photo. But not before CNN Turk featured the story.
The story of “Eddie Bragdon’s” death was featured briefly on CNNTurk.com but was quickly taken down:
And here’s the story tweeted out by CNN Turk’s verified account: The headline reads “Former US Special Forces military was killed in the ranks of the YPG”
It appears a number of Turkish military analysts also promoted the story, which also gave it momentum before it landed on CNN Turk’s homepage.
Many of the dozens of articles which were subsequently written by Turkish and regional outlets based on the CNN reporting have now since taken offline.
The initial pro-Kurdish social media account from which the fake news originated is now celebrating the fact that it successfully trolled CNN and other mainstream outlets, again tweeting the original Bradley Cooper photo but now with the caption (in Turkish), “Smile for the camera!”
We give it a 10 for some top notch trolling. For CNN it’s about par for the course.
Chelsea Manning, one of the most well-known US whistleblowers – jailed for leaking military documents on abuses in Iraq and Afghanistan – confirmed her bid for the US Senate, releasing a campaign video and calling for donations.
The whistleblower has shared her campaign vid on Twitter, captioned “yup, we’re running for senate”.

The video shows scenes of violence during several protests and meetings with US officials. “We live in trying times. Times of fear, of suppression, of hate,” the voiceover says.
“We don’t need more – or better leader, we need someone willing to fight. We need to stop asking them to give us our rights. They won’t support us. They won’t compromise. We need to stop expecting that our systems will somehow fix themselves.”

Manning will challenge incumbent two-term Senator Ben Cardin in the primary, who has held the seat since 2007. Cardin has an approval rating of 54 percent, according to the latest statistics by Morning Consult survey company.
Manning received world-wide renown following her arrest in 2010 after an internal US Army investigation. The whistleblower, known then as Bradley Manning, leaked over 700,000 government documents and videos to WikiLeaks and news outlets across the world. The materials exposed abuses committed by the US military in Afghanistan and Iraq.
The whistleblower was sentenced to 35 years in prison in 2013. The day after the sentencing, Manning came out as a transgender woman. Her sentence was commuted in the last days of Barack Obama’s presidency and she was released from a military prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas in May 2017.
