Disclaimer: Q, or QAnon is a highly charged subject, prone to disinformation, propaganda, and extreme partisanship. The goal of this thread is not to prove or disprove Q's authenticity (that is largely irrelevant - though I will give an overview of both sides below), but rather to examine the information shared with the world by Q. Whether Q is real or a LARP, the information Q team has been sharing since October of last year has enthralled millions (over 20 million by last count), prompting them to dig into esoteric and highly controversial subjects. I have said in the past, and maintain this to be true today, that Q is best treated as a supplemental source or a springboard rather than an oracle. Your own discernment is key, trust your own judgement and gut! 

 

 

Q-acronyms (for this post):

IC: Intelligence Community

KSA: Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

MI: Military Intelligence

PMC: Private Military Contractors

USIC: US Intelligence Community

 

 

 

 


Introduction to QAnon:

 

QAnon, or Q, is an anonymous source claiming to have Q level clearance (Q clearance in the DoE is the highest clearance one can have) who has been dropping coded "crumbs" on several message boards since October 2017. The information presented by Q aligns with the material presented in the Deep State thread in that it lays out an ongoing war behind the scenes between elements of the global IC.

 

To many, Q is a LARP (Live Action Role Play, or a fake in other words) preying on conspiracy inclined folks in an effort to distract and divide people's focus from actual corruption and criminality going on under the noses in the Trump administration.

 

To many more, Q is very real and presenting verifiable information that's been confirmed time and time again by subsequent events. 

 

Since Q's first post on October 28, 2017, Q-Team has posted 1,240 times - these posts are referred to in Q parlance as "crumbs". They're called crumbs because they are often encoded with more information than first appears evident and require researchers to dig into them and "bake" the intelligence product contained therein. Some of the crumbs are highly controversial and will (undoubtedly) trigger some folks down here. The majority of crumbs, however, are backed by overwhelming evidence to support them. 

 

According to Q, the mission of Q-Team is to provide "the largest intelligence drop in world history to the people". According to Q's detractors, Q's purpose is to trick people into trusting 45 and is nothing more than a cheap parlor trick designed to secure a second term for Trump. There's evidence you can pull directly from Q's crumbs to make both cases - which only adds to the mystery. 

 

This topic will undoubtedly trigger mockery and ridicule (that's okay), but while plenty of people will want to focus on whether or not Q is legit I will be attempting to keep the focus of the thread on the information shared by Q and what we can verify from it. 

 

Because of the massive scope of this topic, I wanted to include a Q primer and walk you through a few key crumbs, a few key validations of Q, a few Q misses, and wrap it all up with links and information for people to do their own digging. As such, I've broken this up into several sections: 

 

* What drew me into Q,

 

* What convinced me that Q was more than a LARP

 

* Q’s multiple personalities

 

* What “future proves past” confirmations we’ve seen from Q and Trump

 

* Q MAPS

 

* Direct Q Links

 

What drew me to Q:

 

It was a combination of my investigation into Flynn and his team of leak-killers he had assembled in the NSC – a story which I had been covering and researching since November 2016 – and my separate interests in the esoteric and ET rabbit holes. At first blush that seems like an odd combination, but the research into both those topics often takes me to various message boards and parts of the web where “anonymous insiders” tend to pop up and spill the beans on various things.

 

Nine times out of ten these “anonymous insiders” posting on message boards are nothing but impostors, charlatans, or LARPs designed to “troll” people into believing them. I’ve been exposed to these sorts often, and as such I like to think I’ve developed a pretty good BS meter. Since most of the “insiders” I have stumbled onto before focus on ET stuff – which I research for entertainment purposes as well as material for my day job more so than for “real” information – they tend to be easier for me to expose as being fakes since I am well versed in all the mythology, lore, and case studies of real whistleblowers that these impostors usually burn out quick.

 

In October of 2017 I was already nearing a year into my research for a book project (of which this is now a chapter), the circle of PMCs and USIC officials whom I’d interviewed or struck up relationships with for research purposes was over two dozen. I was convinced by mid-October ’17 that my “leak killer” theory had teeth, and had pinpointed two of the men who were working with Flynn (David Cattler and Ezra Cohen Watknik). I was also, by this point, pretty convinced that Mueller was working with Trump rather than against him – something that is still highly controversial. This theory had far less concrete evidence to support it, but it was a conversation with one of Cattler’s men that turned my head in this direction. 

 

Finally, by October of ’17, as most are well aware, I had long been suspicious of an ongoing civil war within the IC. I detailed in January of 2017 how Trump’s first day in office was spent gutting career officials at State and CIA. He even went so far as to give a speech at Langley, with Flynn by his side, wherein he said he was going to “remove the columns”. Columns, in this sense, meaning the fifth column of corrupt media, career bureaucrats, and others actively working against the interests of the American people and for the betterment of their own organization – whatever that organization may be.

 

This is all to recap where I was with my own work before “Q” started posting...

 

I happened to be made aware of Q on day two of his posting because, by happy “coincidence” I was conducting interviews with three younger (active) SEALS who were themselves on the boards reading the posts as they happened. This was standard practice for these guys, they liked to make fun of the LARPers pretending to be “intelligence operators” or “former SEALS”. So when “Q” popped up, they read me into him right away.

 

However, unlike the other “insiders” we had laughed about in the past, the first reaction I got from these guys was, “he’s formatted his posts to avoid the sniffers” – meaning, whoever Q was knew much more than the average person would about how the NSA triggers worked. So, despite these SEALS not being full believers from day one, they were curious enough by

HOW Q wrote his posts to take notice.

 

That, to me, was interesting. I didn't put any more stock into it than that and continued about my own research. 

 

But still, the first few Q posts – which are linked below – were so outrageous in their predictions that MY first take was that it was disinformation by someone, or some group, trying to distract us. Though, posting on 4Chan at the time seemed like a silly way to “distract” anyone since it’s not exactly a mainstream site.

 

 

Q PROVES TO BE MORE THAN A LARP:

 

I drove back from my interviews that October night thinking that Q was a very well read, very well informed, LARP. I thought he had interesting information, probably a background in Military Intelligence based on what the guys were telling me about his prose (abbreviations used to beat sniffers, leading questions that forced the reader to make the connections rather than spelling it out so the sniffers could smash it et al), but nothing more.

 

Over the next few days, Q’s posts increased in volume and intensity. It started to draw the eyes of a lot of diverse “conspiracy” people as well as a large number of people who had never looked into any of that stuff. It was fascinating to watch unfold, made for great reading material, but ultimately I was certain this Q LARP would burn out in a few days.

 

I was wrong.

 

On October 31st, Q made two posts, including a prediction that would become the first confirmation of his authenticity.

 

The first post was his first on October 31st – I think most of you will recognize how this spoke to me specifically:

Image result for qanon post October 31 2017

 

This hit on EVERYTHING I had been working on with Flynn and Mueller for almost a year at that point. It also hit on the election being rigged as well as Trump being asked to run by MI – which is something else I had independently “confirmed” (as much as one can) from multiple sources inside MI.

 

That post was followed up with this one, which again drew my attention for the use of the term “Wizards and Warlocks” which, I had learned by this point, was a very inside baseball term used by the NSA. They consider themselves to be the council of Wizards and Warlocks.

image.thumb.png.4b317bf5d99be7ac9b505c7f0fa7a520.png

 

This is a CRUCIAL Q post because it’s often used to debunk all the other Q crumbs. Podesta and Huma were not indicted on 11/3 or 11/6. File this away, I’ll have more to say on it later.

 

Note his comment on Manafort being a plant – this is something else I had independently come to suspect, and here it was being “confirmed”. I was stunned.

 

There is also the note that Soros was targeted – which then was confirmed three days later with the arrest of Howard Rubin for human trafficking and violent rape, and Soros dumping all his money into a nonprofit, presumably to prevent it from being seized. :

Real information mixed with disinformation is a pattern with Q that we will see repeated, especially early on in his posting history. We will touch more on why this is important and necessary as we go through…

 

This post was followed up with two posts, one on October 31st and another on November 3rd, that would end up convincing me of Q’s authenticity.

 

In the following crumbs, Q predicts what is about to happen in KSA, an event NO ONE saw coming, not the media, not me, not any of the guys I was interviewing… yet Q knew:

My research left me well versed in how dirty KSA was and how deeply tied into the human trafficking and darker occult stuff they were. This is something I've shared with this board for years now. Last year I was given the opportunity to learn more first hand how bad the trafficking problem in and out of KSA was, prior to the purge and this Q crumb. So when these two crumbs dropped – followed by the prayer, the SAME prayer I witnessed several of the PMCs using before going on human trafficking raids that year themselves – I was intrigued.

 

Then, the next day, November 4th 2017, the KSA purge happened – confirming all of the above. We can’t clean up the corruption globally without taking the big financiers off the board. By and large those aren’t Americans, they’re Saudis (and other foreign nationals). What happened in KSA was the first big victory for the good guys, and it has influenced everything we’ve seen play out domestically since that day.

 

This also ties back into the disinformation I mentioned in Q’s earlier crumbs. When you go back through Q’s crumbs you’ll see a lot about HRC/Huma being arrested and the National Guard being called up as well as civil unrest being discussed. It’s all focused here, in the USA, and I (and the MI guys who I’ve discussed Q with) believe now this was deliberate disinformation designed to make HRC and that cabal think they were going to be swept up while the real action was happening in KSA – the puppet masters not the puppets were the target.

 

Because in KSA the national guard WAS called up, people were arrested – it was just a head feint.

 

This was confirmed on November 4th by Q:

 

screenshot--88-.png

 

 

This was the first big confirmation for me. And I started to follow Q closely afterwards.

 

The final point to make clear, because if you dig into Q you will run across it, within the first few days after the first Q post, sealed magistrate orders started piling up in record numbers across the country. We’re up to over 20,000 to date. We don’t know what these are, they could be indictments, they could be search warrants, but the number since October is unprecedented. It shows, above all else, that something is bubbling behind the scenes.

 

"FUTURE PROVES PAST":

 

“Future Proves Past” is a common turn of phrase from Q. He says it often, referencing how his drops will be confirmed by news to come in future weeks. The KSA Purge was the first, but there have been others. The most impressive, to me, was the change in the Lord’s Prayer.

 

screenshot--89-.png

 

Randomly the Lord’s prayer is included at the end of this crumb without explanation.

 

Then, just a few weeks later:

 

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-42279427

 

Q is back to drive the point home the next day:

 

screenshot--90-.png

 

The most blatant piece of confirmation I've seen from 45 himself happened in the video below (I forget the exact date, but recently - I'm trying to wrap this post up before lunch). What's key to reference here is that for weeks prior to this moment, Q had been dropping "set the stage" a lot in his crumbs. The need to "set the stage"... then, as Trump says "set the stage" he does a hand signal which, to some, look like he's drawing a Q: 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Q” HAS MULTIPLE PERSONALITIES:

 

As you read through the Q posts, you’ll start to notice that there are different voices and styles associated with each crumb. This is because it’s not just one person posting as Q, there appears to be a team.

 

There’s “chatty Q”, more verbose and Socratic than the others: (These are random samplings of Q posts to make this point)

Then there’s a Q who sure sounds like 45:

 

Jan 13 2018 21:17:29Q!UW.yye1fxo20

WE, THE PEOPLE!
WE, THE PEOPLE!
WE, THE PEOPLE!
WE, THE PEOPLE!
WHERE WE GO ONE, WE GO ALL.
NO ONE PERSON IS ABOVE ANOTHER.
WE, THE PEOPLE, ARE MAKING THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE.
WE, THE PEOPLE, ARE TAKING BACK OUR COUNTRY (& WORLD) FROM THE EVIL LOSERS WHO WOULD DO US HARM (ALL FOR A BUCK).
NO MORE.
STAND UP PATRIOTS.
STAND UP AND DEFEND WHAT YOU KNOW IS RIGHT.
GOD BLESS YOU AND GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
4, 10, 20


 

Note, 4, 10, 20 = DJT if you go by letters of the alphabet...

 

The point of this is to show you that Q is not one person, it’s a team. And it’s a team of people who seem to be highly connected to POTUS, and sometimes appears to even be POTUS himself.

 

Why is this important? Because POTUS has the power to declassify anything he wishes. If we go by what Q said in his first wave of posts, that this is the largest intelligence drop in world history, the only way operators inside military and civilian intelligence agencies could drop this kind of intel is if POTUS signed off on it.

 

This is a concept we will be returning to (I'm sure) as this thread evolves. 

 

"Q" MAPS:

 

You’ll see Q reference MAPS a lot as you read. These are the collection of his crumbs, in order, which when put together and cross referenced with current event sources, show “future proves past”.

 

screenshot--91-.png

 

In other words, the MAPS help prove the authenticity of Q's crumbs.

 

Here’s an example of a MAP:

 

Fullsized image

 

 

The point being, that each Q post has multiple layers of information it’s revealing. It’s been described to me as multi-dimensional disclosure. This is done this way to beat sniffers, as well as to help brace the impact of some of the darker revelations. This means that there is a lot of analysis that can be done with each and every Q crumb, lots of codes to break and initials to decipher.

 

DIRECT "Q" LINKS:

 

Here are several links to Q's crumbs. They are dated, numbers, and you can click directly to the message boards where they were posted to see more. This first link includes all of Q's posts, starting from the bottom of the document and working from RIGHT to LEFT (important to remember). 

 

https://qanonposts.com/#921715 (this site is down today... missing all posts from March and April of this year). 

Backup:

https://qanonmap.bitbucket.io/

 

This site CAN go down from time to time, a backup is located here (same concept, just different site): https://qanonmap.bitbucket.io/

 

I won't link directly to 8Chan or the Q Research boards, but those interested in them I will PM you links if you ask. 

 

 

That sums up the long and short of the Q introduction. In my next post I'll analyze one Q crumb to show the level of detail included in each one...

In December I think that analysis was more prescient, though through the lens of time and action, that article reads much more like desperate spin given how much has happened, and how accurate the "Q posts" have been in terms of real intel of world events which have turned out to be accurate.

Disclaimer:  Now that we've given a basic overview of Q, let’s analyze some QAnon crumbs in more detail. This post will be VERY long and detailed, and will be the analysis of essentially one Q crumb. The amount of information that can be gleaned from this one crumb is indicative of how much information is contained within each of the over 1200 crumbs posted to date...

 

This post will raise questions and possibilities rather than definitive conclusions. The aim is to provide you all with enough resources and starting points to dig deeper into the areas which interest you most. I’ve tried my best to keep it clear and entertaining despite its length.

 

I’ve gotten a few requests for my take on SecureDrop and Snowden in relation to Q and the ongoing IC war (CIA v DIA), sharing my analysis on that subject is what inspired this post (and thread) in the first place…

 

… And it got a bit longer than expected. Okay, a LOT longer than I expected.

 

So settle in and get comfy because we’re going to cover a lot of ground.

THE TOPIC: Control the information >> Control the narrative >> Control the masses

 

I have been operating under the premise that we are, today, in the midst of a global civil war. We are witnessing a changing of the guard, the “powers-that-be” are becoming the “powers-that-were”. It’s this ongoing clandestine conflict which influences much of the day-to-day headlines and political spats we have been watching unfold for the past 24+ months. While this is truly a global (and beyond) conflict, for clarity and simplicity I’ve boiled it down to a national level and focused on the CIA v DIA front.

 

As this civil war wages all around us, we are occasionally given glimpses behind the curtain and into the machine the “powers-that-were” built to maintain control over a global population. Key to this effort is controlling (and often suppressing) information from the public.

 

It’s a practice that dates back to time immemorial. From ancient armies erasing the monuments and histories of their vanquished, to the rise of corporate infotainment passed off as journalism, the powerful have spent billions in blood and treasure attempting to control information.

 

By controlling information, you can bend the narrative to your will and use it to control large groups of people. It’s one of the oldest tricks in the book for a reason: it works.

 

DbapsC9U8AAi_LS.jpg

 

The rise of the internet and digital technologies created all sorts of problems for those interested in controlling information, but they also presented new opportunities.

While it’s easier than ever for a whistleblower to transmit volumes of information to the world through the internet, the global dependence upon inter-connectivity and smart devices have made us all easier to influence, track, monitor, and – if need be – silence.

 

Which brings us to the series of #QAnon crumbs I’ll be unpacking in this thread-novella. These are old Q crumbs, which means many others have already brilliantly decoded and covered them. None of this will be breaking news, nor an attempt to discredit others’ analysis, nor an attempt to pass off anyone else’s work as my own.

 

It’s just my take, filtered through a very specific lens.

 

I contend that with these crumbs the Q-team is pulling back the curtain on one of the more insidious efforts by the powers-that-were to control information in the digital age, and in the process possibly revealing real life spy v spy drama.  

 

In the end, what Q offers in the following crumbs is but a small peek into a much wider and pervasive effort on behalf of various elements of the IC to control the narrative.

 

The primary crumb we’ll be examining, CrumbPrime as it will be referred to, is #628 which dropped January 27, 2018:

DbaqjJwVQAEWP_K.jpg

 

CrumbPrime is stuffed with nutrients and rabbit holes for days, so to best lay this all out I’m going to break it up into smaller, more digestible pieces.

 

But before we do that, let’s first go over the headlines behind the names referenced by Q in this crumb and see how they all connect.

 

Starting with…

 

FREEDOM OF THE PRESS (FTP)

FTP began in late 2012, founded by John Perry Barlow and a group of luminaries from the world of journalism, activism, and tech – including Julian Assange. Barlow and the others formed FTP in response to the financial blockade imposed upon WikiLeaks by Paypal, Mastercard, Bank of America, and others.

https://freedom.press/

https://www.revolvy.com/main/index.php?s=Freedom of the Press Foundation

 

The partnership between Assange and FTP – and how it fell apart recently – will be examined in greater detail later in the post…

 

JOHN PERRY BARLOW (JPB)              

 

DbarUiVVwAAUceC.jpg

 

Before co-founding FTP with Assange and others, JPB was a lyricist for the Grateful Dead. Later in life he became a celebrated internet activist, forming EFF, among other endeavors, and he even penned a Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace: https://www.eff.org/cyberspace-independence

 

SecureDrop:

On the surface, SecureDrop is an open source whistleblower submission system, providing a safe and secure way for whistleblowers to leak sensitive information to the media through its conjunction with Tor (a connection we will return to).

 

A noble pursuit which was originally conceived and built by Aaron Swartz, with the help of James Dolan, and Kevin Poulsen – the three co-founders of SecureDrop and names we will be digging into in greater detail.   

https://securedrop.org/

 

Aaron Swartz tragically took his own life before SecureDrop launched – just days before in fact.

 

His death has been the subject of numerous theories and yes, we will dive into my take on it later in the thread. Prior to his death, the project was named DeadDrop:

Dba5CdvVAAAU4X1.jpg

 

This 2013 article is chalk full of names of people we will be circling back to and is worth reading in its entirety: http://business.time.com/2013/10/15/meet-the-nsa-proof-drop-box-for-whistleblowers/

 

Kevin Poulsen, the only surviving co-founder of SecureDrop, and JPB are both quoted in the article. It was Poulsen who brought SecureDrop to FTP after Swartz’s death – and important fact to keep in mind as we work our way through this maze. 

 

Dba5PEEV0AAKcn6.jpg

 

Here’s a random YouTube video with less than 1k views of almost all of the people named above discussing the transition from DeadDrop to SecureDrop.

 

The vid is lead off by Poulsen himself:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Note the comments from Micah Lee re WikiLeaks at around the 40 second mark and store it away in your memory banks. You’ll thank me later as you read the linked sources.

 

Let’s recap our overview:

After Swartz’s death, Poulsen partnered with FTP, JPB, Assange, and others to turn DeadDrop into SecureDrop. On paper it’s a perfect pairing. JPB, like Swartz, was an icon for internet advocacy. Ditto with Assange and WikiLeaks. Attaching their names and legacies to SecureDrop cemented its legitimacy.

 

The aim of FTP and SecureDrop was laudable: to provide anonymity and security between journalists and whistleblowers through their software. This would create a secure outlet for the type of radical transparency Swartz dedicated his life to.

 

Over the past five years, SecureDrop has partnered with two dozen major media outlets, including:

 

The AP

The NYT

The Guardian

The Washington Post

And Bloomberg 

https://securedrop.org/directory

 

Langley has a long documented history of using certain established press outlets to disseminate Company talking points or spin. The WaPo, NYT, and Guardian all are well known IC collaborators - sometimes legally or unwittingly and sometimes illegally and wittingly.

 

And now a sizable chunk of these Langley cutouts, along with dozens of other powerful media outlets, are using SecureDrop to communicate with whistleblowers thanks to the work of FTP and its board…

 

… which now includes Edward Snowden.

 

Dba6AczU0AELrj1.jpg

 

That’s right. Snowden joined the FTP board in 2014 and became its president in 2016.

 

The “Snowden of it all” is a controversial subject which we will unravel towards the end of this novella… 

 

But for now, that checks off all the names dropped by Q in CrumbPrime:

 

Dba6RnnUQAIpls_.jpg

 

Which means we can begin our analysis of CrumbPrime piece by piece.

 

Starting (of course) with the last bit first:

 

Dba6YWaV4AAVFzl.jpg

 

This cuts right to the heart of the big reveal.  

 

The use of brackets in Q posts signify a kill box. A target in other words, sometimes of bad actors, sometimes of Q-team’s assets. It was the specific use of brackets in this crumb inspired this entire write up…

 

Q is positing something others have suspected before – including myself as this is an area I had been researching for my own work before this crumb was dropped, a Q-synchronicity that has occurred more than once… to not just me, but many researchers. Essentially Q is telling us that SecureDrop is, in reality, a honeypot designed to identify and silence whistleblowers rather than enable them.

 

Talk about insidious…

 

According to CrumbPrime, SecureDrop is putting [Whistleblowers] into the kill box by exposing their identities and more to corrupt elements in CIA. (Clowns=CIA in Q crumbs).

 

And it makes complete sense from the IC's perspective. What better way would there be to control information than to co-opt a secure disclosure tool and turn it into a tracking and elimination tool for the “powers-that-were”?

 

Dba6wpEU8AArjOI.jpg

This is understandably a big claim, but if you dig there is enough evidence to force one to at least consider its merit.

 

Odd connections between FTP and the IC begin popping up almost immediately, and slowly but surely FTP’s attitude towards its co-founder Assange began to align with that of the IC’s. The fracture between FTP and Assange occurred late in 2016 and seems to have been motivated by WikiLeaks publications during the 2016 election. Publications which, as we know, were direct shots across the bow of the “powers-that-were”.  

 

Poulsen (there’s that name again) announced the split in a Daily Beast article he penned on November 11, 2016. The article is scathing and takes swipes at Assange and Wikileaks with nearly every adjective, mixing fiction with propaganda along the way: 

 

https://www.thedailybeast.com/free-press-group-set-to-cut-off-wikileaks

 

Boiled down to its bare bones, FTP claims they broke away from their co-founder in part because the financial blockade against Wikileaks that inspired their partnership was no longer in existence.

 

Problem is, that’s just not true:

 

Dba7yKVUQAA8Q40.jpg

 

In reality, the reason for the split stems from the partisanship of many of FTP’s board, and their response to WikiLeaks publication of the DNC and Podesta emails during the election:

 

Dba73TyU0AAXdpy.jpg

https://medium.com/@AngelFox1/why-would-the-freedom-of-the-press-foundation-turn-on-its-own-founder-3a569d38465a

 

A deeper dig beneath the raw partisan bent reveals the fingerprints of CIA influence on much of the FTP board.

 

Starting with Pierre Omidyar...

 

Dba7_0EU0AAmGkH.jpg

 

Who is Omidyar?

 

The billionaire founder of eBay, and now owner of PayPal who led the financial blockade against WikiLeaks which inspired the formation of FTP in the first place.

 

Omidyar financed the Intercept with FTP board members Greenwald and Portias in 2014, and has poured millions into FTP since that time:

 

Dba8I-eV0AEY3dz.jpg

 

Omindyar isn’t a truth warrior, in fact he’s made his career being the opposite:

 

Dba8Pk4VwAEaxre.jpg

 

Put a pin in that tweet as we will circle back to it when we dive deeper into Snowden’s allegiances…

 

Omidyar also has deep ties to the political establishment and the IC, specifically Langley and DoD (Like most Silicon Valley billionaires):

 

Dba8Zl6V0AEl8jW.jpg

So Omindyar, who has waged war against leakers and WikiLeaks on behalf of his companies and his IC connections for a decade, suddenly invests in the Intercept (and the Snowden documents) out of the good of his heart? 

 

Image result for ron burgundy i don't believe you gif

 

Assange and WikiLeaks sure don’t buy it either:

 

Dba8pDQVMAApv-5.jpg

 

Nor does Sibel Edmonds:

 

Dba8s9mVAAATVcy.jpg

 

The last few sources all stem from this brilliant three part series written by Whitney Webb, we will be leaning on all three parts throughout the rest of the thread. Please read all three articles in full once you're done:

https://www.mintpressnews.com/fbi-whistleblower-on-pierre-omidyar-campaign-to-neuter-wikileaks/236414/

https://www.mintpressnews.com/palantir-the-paypal-offshoot-becomes-a-weapon-in-the-war-against-whistleblowers-and-wikileaks/236545/

https://www.mintpressnews.com/displacing-wikileaks-is-securedrop-a-government-leak-graveyard/238339/

 

We will be returning to Omindyar when we examine Snowden’s role in greater detail, but for now let’s sum up his influence before moving on:

 

In 2014, less than a year after FTP’s founding, Omindyar buys two of FTP’s board members (Greenwald and Poitras) – and in short order FTP begins to drift away from Assange, WikiLeaks, and their original mission.

 

This accelerates as WikiLeaks begins to publish DNC emails and their Vault 7 leaks which targeted Langley’s cyber toolkit directly.

 

In other words, it’s clear the war between Langley and Assange is escalating through 2014 into late 2016 as CIA elements begin to squeeze Assange out of the foundation he co-founded, putting a stranglehold on his funding methods.  

 

It’s interesting to note that while Greenwald has remained largely silent on this issue, Poitras put herself in the spotlight with the release – and re-cut – of her Assange documentary RISK:

 

Dba9TkkU8AAgT3N.jpg

 

http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/movies/la-et-mn-laura-poitras-risk-20170505-story.html

 

Like FTP, Poitras began distancing herself from Assange in the wake of the 2016 election. Was she pressured to do so by her benefactor Omindyar on behalf of the “powers-that-were”? There’s enough smoke around the sudden mood change within FTP to take this question seriously.

 

The FTP and IC connections don’t end with Omidyar, there’s also Mr. Poulsen’s history to consider. Poulsen, the last surviving founder of SecureDrop, has a history which strongly implies ties to Langley, something that is covered expertly in part three of the Whitney Webb’s series linked above:

 

Dba9l6gV4AA5NxY.jpg

 

Dba9n9vVMAAvkYB.jpg

 

Poulsen’s and Assange’s beef dates back to Poulsen’s duplicitous reporting on the Manning story in 2010.

 

Poulsen wrote a story for WIRED wherein he named Manning as a whistleblower before the arrest had been public, prompting Poulsen’s ethics to come under fire:

 

Dba9tf7VQAI95Kq.jpg

 

There is much more to cover regarding Poulsen, and we will, but for now this is enough to allow one to see the Langley creep into both SecureDrop and FTP is severe.

 

This influence seems to have motivated, at least in part, the split between FTP and Assange…

 

Langley’s motivation to infiltrate FTP and SecureDrop seem obvious: co-opting a disclosure tool and turning it into a tracking tool while simultaneously weakening WikiLeaks and Assange. 

 

This is something that Assange seems to have figured out in late February of this year – coincidentally after QAnon dropped almost a month’s worth of crumbs on the subject.

 

To tell this part of the story we have to turn our attention to SecureDrop’s reliance on TOR.

 

The TOR of it all... 

 

Investigative journalist Yasha Levine uncovered the IC’s involvement in TOR is more extensive than most realized, including (possibly) Assange and FTP’s original founders.

 

Dba--b4U0AAKXds.jpg

Read the full article to get a bigger sense of the IC creep into Tor but I wanted to draw your eyes to the third paragraph:

 

“Tor privately ‘tipped off’ the federal government when finding security vulnerabilities well before the public was made aware of them – giving the government plenty of time to exploit the flaws to their benefit. One of those vulnerabilities ‘made Tor traffic stand out from all the rest and made it easy to fingerprint and single out people who were using Tor…”

 

As covered earlier, SecureDrop was designed to be paired with Tor – and even though SecureDrop’s code itself is secure, its reliance on the compromised Tor made it worthless in terms of protecting one’s identity from the “powers-that-were”. It seems Assange became aware of this enough to publicly tweet the following in February of this year:

 

Dba_Vx_V0AET_r3.jpg

 

 

Let’s once again step back and recap our efforts thus far:

 

We have dissected just a small nugget of CrumbPrime but have found compromising fingerprints of the IC on both FTP and SecureDrop that should alarm transparency and privacy advocates alike. 

 

Let’s now turn to the final line of CrumbPrime: NOBODY IS SAFE…

 

Dba_fKwUQAQ13HP.jpg

 

A deeper dive under the surface of SecureDrop and FTP reveals a pile of bodies lying in their wake, starting with Swartz’s suicide just days before the launch. But his death was just the first of a string... 

 

James Dolan took the reins of SecureDrop after Swartz’s death. Dolan, a former Marine (MEF) and data network specialist, took his own life five years after Aaron at just 36 under suspicious circumstances that lined up nearly identically with Swartz, down to the location of his death. It happened in early January – just a few weeks before Q began dropping crumbs on this subject…

 

https://freedom.press/news/tribute-james-dolan-co-creator-securedrop-who-has-tragically-passed-away-age-36/

https://gizmodo.com/james-dolan-co-creator-of-securedrop-dead-at-36-1821921230

 

Just hours after CrumbPrime dropped, the NY Post ran an article about the eerie similarities of Swartz and Dolan’s deaths, diving deep into the controversy:

 

https://nypost.com/2018/01/27/these-hackers-suicides-are-eerily-similar/

 

Also on the same day as our first crumb, Q dropped this without further comment…

 

Dba_zyYV4AAMU5U.jpg

 

… Until 11 days later when John P Barlow died, joining the list of the deceased FTP and SecureDrop members.

 

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/08/obituaries/john-perry-barlow-internet-champion-dies.html

 

Barlow allegedly died in his sleep at the age of 70 after a long period of ill health.

 

Or…

 

Possibly there was more to the story, as QAnon alludes to the evening of Barlow’s death. Q callsback to crumb #634, quoting it directly and repeating its message:

 

DbbAEmsVwAAAUBO.jpg

 

QAnnon seems to be alluding to JPB being killed rather than dying off naturally.

 

Something Q hints at again a week later with crumb #770:

 

DbbAJaiVAAACnin.jpg

 

Q’s direct appeal to Snowden in crumb 770 is a nice transition into the second part of our analysis: 

 

The Snowden of it all:

In 770 Q refers to Snowden as a liability now that Dolan, Swartz, and JPB are dead.

 

There has been a fierce debate between researchers which has focused on whether Snowden was a black hat turned white hat by Q-team, or if he was always a white hat masquerading as a black hat to infiltrate FTP and thwart the “powers-that-were” plans for SecureDrop.

 

This is a MUCH larger subject, with dozens of more Q crumbs (including real-time images of a pursuit and snatch & grab mission) which I can break down in greater detail in a different post since this one has already gone on too long.

 

For now I’ll give a brief overview of both possibilities before weighing in with my own opinion.

 

But before we get there, let’s finish our analysis of CrumbPrime:

 

DbbAqu4VAAAiVQ6.jpg

 

Let’s start with [Mr. Contractor].

 

We have established that Q’s use of brackets signify a kill box, a target. Here, Q is implying that the clock is ticking for Snowden and soon he will find himself in the kill box. Q refers to Snowden as Mr. Contractor, a direct reference to the idea that Snowden was, and remains, an active CIA NOC.

 

Remember, Snowden started out as a CIA officer before transitioning to a gun for hire for all sorts of IC agencies and contractors. This history, and Q’s subsequent Snowden crumbs, sparked much debate about Snowden’s true mission when he pilfered NSA files and released them through FTP board members Greenwald, Poitras, as well as the IC friendly The Guardian.

 

Did Snowden infiltrated NSA on behalf of CIA to expose their most sensitive data, in some sort of inter-agency pissing match, causing the public to distrust No Such Agency? Or was he truly working on his own and fighting for transparency like Swartz, JPB, and FTP were known for?

 

Let’s look at both theories briefly, starting with…

 

Snowden as a Black Hat:

 

Assuming Snowden was a CIA black hat all along, was infiltrating FTP and SecureDrop part of his mission as well?


When one looks at the evidence, it’s VERY possible.

In fact, there’s loads of circumstantial evidence that gives this theory weight. Let’s go back to FTP’s and Snowden’s connection to Omindyar. Remember, Omindyar has connections to not just Snowden, but also his former boss and the company where he was last a contractor for: Booz Hamilton:

 

DbbB5tbVAAECMG5.jpg

There’s even more:

 

DbbB-7sUQAEcRjf.jpg

 

DbbCAuzVwAA9eOg.jpg

 

Now, remember back to Omindyar’s tweet regarding leaks and leakers referenced earlier.

 

DbbCKE2UQAAPIFr.jpg

 

We’ve established Omidyar's connections to the IC and his desire to silence leakers – is it a stretch to say that Omindyar would see the value of working with Snowden to undercut FTP and SecureDrop on behalf of the CIA?

 

Absolutely not.

 

Snowden, like FTP itself, even began to take shots at WikiLeaks and Assange (the organization which ostensibly helped Snowden escape Hong Kong) – prompting this exchange on Twitter which adds more evidence to this black hat theory:

 

DbbCWUAV4AAgaM6.jpg

 

QAnon has dropped a handful of crumbs supporting this black hat theory, including #874:

 

DbbCa31VwAEZyCk.jpg

 

There was a lot of excitement in February as Q began posting a series of real time pictures seemingly tracking Snowden and pressuring him to “flip”. Here are a few to give you a sense (I can break down the decoding of these crumbs at another point):

 

screenshot--93-.png

screenshot--94-.png

 

screenshot--92-.png

 

Note - none of these pictures existed in any known website prior to Q's posts. 

 

The conclusion of this "real time" chase, was supposedly Snowden agreeing to work with Q's team (which was "confirmed" by Snowden on his twitter feed). 

 

That sums up the nuts and bolts of the Snowden as a black hat theory. It’s solid, compelling, and backed by evidence. Q’s crumbs add even more support to this theory through much of February and March of ’18.

 

But there is another possibility with regards to Snowden, one that’s less popular but must be discussed.

 

Snowden as a white hat theory:

This is the theory I personally am partial to, though it has less obvious Q support than the former theory.

 

The concept is simple: Snowden was tapped for a slow play mission designed to infiltrate and help oust the CIA elements from both FTP and SecureDrop.

 

To see this theory in full, let’s take a closer look at the timeline of SecureDrop and FTP:

 

DbbCytyVMAApB15.jpg

 

What if the white hats sniffed out the “powers-that-were” plans with FTP and SecureDrop after Swartz’s death and sent Snowden into the hornets’ nest as a double agent?

 

Possible?

 

Sure is. In fact, the tone of many of Q’s crumbs about Snowden seem on the surface to be hostile but upon further reflection are more like warnings. Direct communications – which Snowden himself (allegedly) begins to establish on the Q research boards beginning last month.

DbbDSaXVMAEGL8d.jpg

 

While I tend to lean towards the Snowden as a white hat theory, in reality the debate is moot. Regardless of his affiliations when he started, Snowden appears to be working with the Q team very publicly in recent weeks, helping Q-Team open the masses’ eyes to the !@#$ery afoot.

 

DbbDfGAV4AELfoT.jpg

CONCLUSION: The length of this thread explains why I don’t cover Q posts directly all that often. Each one can be its own book when done properly – and with CrumbPrime we have still only brushed the surface of the topic despite the heft of this post. 

 

While I cannot say for certain whether Snowden was always a white hat, nor can I say for certain who among FTP and SecureDrop are (or were) playing for the “powers-that-were”, the evidence leads me to conclude that SecureDrop through Tor and FTP has been heavily compromised by the “powers-that-were”.

 

The desire to control the narrative is clear.

Disclaimer:  Now that we've given a basic overview of Q, let’s analyze some QAnon crumbs in more detail. This post will be VERY long and detailed, and will be the analysis of essentially one Q crumb. The amount of information that can be gleaned from this one crumb is indicative of how much information is contained within each of the over 1200 crumbs posted to date...

 

This post will raise questions and possibilities rather than definitive conclusions. The aim is to provide you all with enough resources and starting points to dig deeper into the areas which interest you most. I’ve tried my best to keep it clear and entertaining despite its length.

 

I’ve gotten a few requests for my take on SecureDrop and Snowden in relation to Q and the ongoing IC war (CIA v DIA), sharing my analysis on that subject is what inspired this post (and thread) in the first place…

 

… And it got a bit longer than expected. Okay, a LOT longer than I expected.

 

So settle in and get comfy because we’re going to cover a lot of ground.

THE TOPIC: Control the information >> Control the narrative >> Control the masses

 

I have been operating under the premise that we are, today, in the midst of a global civil war. We are witnessing a changing of the guard, the “powers-that-be” are becoming the “powers-that-were”. It’s this ongoing clandestine conflict which influences much of the day-to-day headlines and political spats we have been watching unfold for the past 24+ months. While this is truly a global (and beyond) conflict, for clarity and simplicity I’ve boiled it down to a national level and focused on the CIA v DIA front.

 

As this civil war wages all around us, we are occasionally given glimpses behind the curtain and into the machine the “powers-that-were” built to maintain control over a global population. Key to this effort is controlling (and often suppressing) information from the public.

 

It’s a practice that dates back to time immemorial. From ancient armies erasing the monuments and histories of their vanquished, to the rise of corporate infotainment passed off as journalism, the powerful have spent billions in blood and treasure attempting to control information.

 

By controlling information, you can bend the narrative to your will and use it to control large groups of people. It’s one of the oldest tricks in the book for a reason: it works.

 

DbapsC9U8AAi_LS.jpg

 

The rise of the internet and digital technologies created all sorts of problems for those interested in controlling information, but they also presented new opportunities.

While it’s easier than ever for a whistleblower to transmit volumes of information to the world through the internet, the global dependence upon inter-connectivity and smart devices have made us all easier to influence, track, monitor, and – if need be – silence.

 

Which brings us to the series of #QAnon crumbs I’ll be unpacking in this thread-novella. These are old Q crumbs, which means many others have already brilliantly decoded and covered them. None of this will be breaking news, nor an attempt to discredit others’ analysis, nor an attempt to pass off anyone else’s work as my own.

 

It’s just my take, filtered through a very specific lens.

 

I contend that with these crumbs the Q-team is pulling back the curtain on one of the more insidious efforts by the powers-that-were to control information in the digital age, and in the process possibly revealing real life spy v spy drama.  

 

In the end, what Q offers in the following crumbs is but a small peek into a much wider and pervasive effort on behalf of various elements of the IC to control the narrative.

 

The primary crumb we’ll be examining, CrumbPrime as it will be referred to, is #628 which dropped January 27, 2018:

DbaqjJwVQAEWP_K.jpg

 

CrumbPrime is stuffed with nutrients and rabbit holes for days, so to best lay this all out I’m going to break it up into smaller, more digestible pieces.

 

But before we do that, let’s first go over the headlines behind the names referenced by Q in this crumb and see how they all connect.

 

Starting with…

 

FREEDOM OF THE PRESS (FTP)

FTP began in late 2012, founded by John Perry Barlow and a group of luminaries from the world of journalism, activism, and tech – including Julian Assange. Barlow and the others formed FTP in response to the financial blockade imposed upon WikiLeaks by Paypal, Mastercard, Bank of America, and others.

https://freedom.press/

https://www.revolvy.com/main/index.php?s=Freedom of the Press Foundation

 

The partnership between Assange and FTP – and how it fell apart recently – will be examined in greater detail later in the post…

 

JOHN PERRY BARLOW (JPB)              

 

DbarUiVVwAAUceC.jpg

 

Before co-founding FTP with Assange and others, JPB was a lyricist for the Grateful Dead. Later in life he became a celebrated internet activist, forming EFF, among other endeavors, and he even penned a Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace: https://www.eff.org/cyberspace-independence

 

SecureDrop:

On the surface, SecureDrop is an open source whistleblower submission system, providing a safe and secure way for whistleblowers to leak sensitive information to the media through its conjunction with Tor (a connection we will return to).

 

A noble pursuit which was originally conceived and built by Aaron Swartz, with the help of James Dolan, and Kevin Poulsen – the three co-founders of SecureDrop and names we will be digging into in greater detail.   

https://securedrop.org/

 

Aaron Swartz tragically took his own life before SecureDrop launched – just days before in fact.

 

His death has been the subject of numerous theories and yes, we will dive into my take on it later in the thread. Prior to his death, the project was named DeadDrop:

Dba5CdvVAAAU4X1.jpg

 

This 2013 article is chalk full of names of people we will be circling back to and is worth reading in its entirety: http://business.time.com/2013/10/15/meet-the-nsa-proof-drop-box-for-whistleblowers/

 

Kevin Poulsen, the only surviving co-founder of SecureDrop, and JPB are both quoted in the article. It was Poulsen who brought SecureDrop to FTP after Swartz’s death – and important fact to keep in mind as we work our way through this maze. 

 

Dba5PEEV0AAKcn6.jpg

 

Here’s a random YouTube video with less than 1k views of almost all of the people named above discussing the transition from DeadDrop to SecureDrop.

 

The vid is lead off by Poulsen himself:

 

 

 

Note the comments from Micah Lee re WikiLeaks at around the 40 second mark and store it away in your memory banks. You’ll thank me later as you read the linked sources.

 

Let’s recap our overview:

After Swartz’s death, Poulsen partnered with FTP, JPB, Assange, and others to turn DeadDrop into SecureDrop. On paper it’s a perfect pairing. JPB, like Swartz, was an icon for internet advocacy. Ditto with Assange and WikiLeaks. Attaching their names and legacies to SecureDrop cemented its legitimacy.

 

The aim of FTP and SecureDrop was laudable: to provide anonymity and security between journalists and whistleblowers through their software. This would create a secure outlet for the type of radical transparency Swartz dedicated his life to.

 

Over the past five years, SecureDrop has partnered with two dozen major media outlets, including:

 

The AP

The NYT

The Guardian

The Washington Post

And Bloomberg 

https://securedrop.org/directory

 

Langley has a long documented history of using certain established press outlets to disseminate Company talking points or spin. The WaPo, NYT, and Guardian all are well known IC collaborators - sometimes legally or unwittingly and sometimes illegally and wittingly.

 

And now a sizable chunk of these Langley cutouts, along with dozens of other powerful media outlets, are using SecureDrop to communicate with whistleblowers thanks to the work of FTP and its board…

 

… which now includes Edward Snowden.

 

Dba6AczU0AELrj1.jpg

 

That’s right. Snowden joined the FTP board in 2014 and became its president in 2016.

 

The “Snowden of it all” is a controversial subject which we will unravel towards the end of this novella… 

 

But for now, that checks off all the names dropped by Q in CrumbPrime:

 

Dba6RnnUQAIpls_.jpg

 

Which means we can begin our analysis of CrumbPrime piece by piece.

 

Starting (of course) with the last bit first:

 

Dba6YWaV4AAVFzl.jpg

 

This cuts right to the heart of the big reveal.  

 

The use of brackets in Q posts signify a kill box. A target in other words, sometimes of bad actors, sometimes of Q-team’s assets. It was the specific use of brackets in this crumb inspired this entire write up…

 

Q is positing something others have suspected before – including myself as this is an area I had been researching for my own work before this crumb was dropped, a Q-synchronicity that has occurred more than once… to not just me, but many researchers. Essentially Q is telling us that SecureDrop is, in reality, a honeypot designed to identify and silence whistleblowers rather than enable them.

 

Talk about insidious…

 

According to CrumbPrime, SecureDrop is putting [Whistleblowers] into the kill box by exposing their identities and more to corrupt elements in CIA. (Clowns=CIA in Q crumbs).

 

And it makes complete sense from the IC's perspective. What better way would there be to control information than to co-opt a secure disclosure tool and turn it into a tracking and elimination tool for the “powers-that-were”?

 

Dba6wpEU8AArjOI.jpg

This is understandably a big claim, but if you dig there is enough evidence to force one to at least consider its merit.

 

Odd connections between FTP and the IC begin popping up almost immediately, and slowly but surely FTP’s attitude towards its co-founder Assange began to align with that of the IC’s. The fracture between FTP and Assange occurred late in 2016 and seems to have been motivated by WikiLeaks publications during the 2016 election. Publications which, as we know, were direct shots across the bow of the “powers-that-were”.  

 

Poulsen (there’s that name again) announced the split in a Daily Beast article he penned on November 11, 2016. The article is scathing and takes swipes at Assange and Wikileaks with nearly every adjective, mixing fiction with propaganda along the way: 

 

https://www.thedailybeast.com/free-press-group-set-to-cut-off-wikileaks

 

Boiled down to its bare bones, FTP claims they broke away from their co-founder in part because the financial blockade against Wikileaks that inspired their partnership was no longer in existence.

 

Problem is, that’s just not true:

 

Dba7yKVUQAA8Q40.jpg

 

In reality, the reason for the split stems from the partisanship of many of FTP’s board, and their response to WikiLeaks publication of the DNC and Podesta emails during the election:

 

Dba73TyU0AAXdpy.jpg

https://medium.com/@AngelFox1/why-would-the-freedom-of-the-press-foundation-turn-on-its-own-founder-3a569d38465a

 

A deeper dig beneath the raw partisan bent reveals the fingerprints of CIA influence on much of the FTP board.

 

Starting with Pierre Omidyar...

 

Dba7_0EU0AAmGkH.jpg

 

Who is Omidyar?

 

The billionaire founder of eBay, and now owner of PayPal who led the financial blockade against WikiLeaks which inspired the formation of FTP in the first place.

 

Omidyar financed the Intercept with FTP board members Greenwald and Portias in 2014, and has poured millions into FTP since that time:

 

Dba8I-eV0AEY3dz.jpg

 

Omindyar isn’t a truth warrior, in fact he’s made his career being the opposite:

 

Dba8Pk4VwAEaxre.jpg

 

Put a pin in that tweet as we will circle back to it when we dive deeper into Snowden’s allegiances…

 

Omidyar also has deep ties to the political establishment and the IC, specifically Langley and DoD (Like most Silicon Valley billionaires):

 

Dba8Zl6V0AEl8jW.jpg

So Omindyar, who has waged war against leakers and WikiLeaks on behalf of his companies and his IC connections for a decade, suddenly invests in the Intercept (and the Snowden documents) out of the good of his heart?

We will be returning to Omindyar when we examine Snowden’s role in greater detail, but for now let’s sum up his influence before moving on:

 

In 2014, less than a year after FTP’s founding, Omindyar buys two of FTP’s board members (Greenwald and Poitras) – and in short order FTP begins to drift away from Assange, WikiLeaks, and their original mission.

 

This accelerates as WikiLeaks begins to publish DNC emails and their Vault 7 leaks which targeted Langley’s cyber toolkit directly.

 

In other words, it’s clear the war between Langley and Assange is escalating through 2014 into late 2016 as CIA elements begin to squeeze Assange out of the foundation he co-founded, putting a stranglehold on his funding methods.  

 

It’s interesting to note that while Greenwald has remained largely silent on this issue, Poitras put herself in the spotlight with the release – and re-cut – of her Assange documentary RISK:

http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/movies/la-et-mn-laura-poitras-risk-20170505-story.html

 

Like FTP, Poitras began distancing herself from Assange in the wake of the 2016 election. Was she pressured to do so by her benefactor Omindyar on behalf of the “powers-that-were”? There’s enough smoke around the sudden mood change within FTP to take this question seriously.

 

The FTP and IC connections don’t end with Omidyar, there’s also Mr. Poulsen’s history to consider. Poulsen, the last surviving founder of SecureDrop, has a history which strongly implies ties to Langley, something that is covered expertly in part three of the Whitney Webb’s series linked above:

 

Dba9l6gV4AA5NxY.jpg

 

Dba9n9vVMAAvkYB.jpg

 

Poulsen’s and Assange’s beef dates back to Poulsen’s duplicitous reporting on the Manning story in 2010.

 

Poulsen wrote a story for WIRED wherein he named Manning as a whistleblower before the arrest had been public, prompting Poulsen’s ethics to come under fire:

 

Dba9tf7VQAI95Kq.jpg

 

There is much more to cover regarding Poulsen, and we will, but for now this is enough to allow one to see the Langley creep into both SecureDrop and FTP is severe.

 

This influence seems to have motivated, at least in part, the split between FTP and Assange…

 

Langley’s motivation to infiltrate FTP and SecureDrop seem obvious: co-opting a disclosure tool and turning it into a tracking tool while simultaneously weakening WikiLeaks and Assange. 

 

This is something that Assange seems to have figured out in late February of this year – coincidentally after QAnon dropped almost a month’s worth of crumbs on the subject.

 

To tell this part of the story we have to turn our attention to SecureDrop’s reliance on TOR.

 

The TOR of it all... 

 

Investigative journalist Yasha Levine uncovered the IC’s involvement in TOR is more extensive than most realized, including (possibly) Assange and FTP’s original founders.

 

Dba--b4U0AAKXds.jpg

Read the full article to get a bigger sense of the IC creep into Tor but I wanted to draw your eyes to the third paragraph:

 

“Tor privately ‘tipped off’ the federal government when finding security vulnerabilities well before the public was made aware of them – giving the government plenty of time to exploit the flaws to their benefit. One of those vulnerabilities ‘made Tor traffic stand out from all the rest and made it easy to fingerprint and single out people who were using Tor…”

 

As covered earlier, SecureDrop was designed to be paired with Tor – and even though SecureDrop’s code itself is secure, its reliance on the compromised Tor made it worthless in terms of protecting one’s identity from the “powers-that-were”. It seems Assange became aware of this enough to publicly tweet the following in February of this year:

 

Dba_Vx_V0AET_r3.jpg

 

 

Let’s once again step back and recap our efforts thus far:

 

We have dissected just a small nugget of CrumbPrime but have found compromising fingerprints of the IC on both FTP and SecureDrop that should alarm transparency and privacy advocates alike. 

 

Let’s now turn to the final line of CrumbPrime: NOBODY IS SAFE…

 

Dba_fKwUQAQ13HP.jpg

 

A deeper dive under the surface of SecureDrop and FTP reveals a pile of bodies lying in their wake, starting with Swartz’s suicide just days before the launch. But his death was just the first of a string... 

 

James Dolan took the reins of SecureDrop after Swartz’s death. Dolan, a former Marine (MEF) and data network specialist, took his own life five years after Aaron at just 36 under suspicious circumstances that lined up nearly identically with Swartz, down to the location of his death. It happened in early January – just a few weeks before Q began dropping crumbs on this subject…

https://gizmodo.com/james-dolan-co-creator-of-securedrop-dead-at-36-1821921230

 

Just hours after CrumbPrime dropped, the NY Post ran an article about the eerie similarities of Swartz and Dolan’s deaths, diving deep into the controversy:

 

https://nypost.com/2018/01/27/these-hackers-suicides-are-eerily-similar/

 

Also on the same day as our first crumb, Q dropped this without further comment…

 

Dba_zyYV4AAMU5U.jpg

 

… Until 11 days later when John P Barlow died, joining the list of the deceased FTP and SecureDrop members.

 

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/08/obituaries/john-perry-barlow-internet-champion-dies.html

 

Barlow allegedly died in his sleep at the age of 70 after a long period of ill health.

 

Or…

 

Possibly there was more to the story, as QAnon alludes to the evening of Barlow’s death. Q callsback to crumb #634, quoting it directly and repeating its message:

 

DbbAEmsVwAAAUBO.jpg

 

QAnnon seems to be alluding to JPB being killed rather than dying off naturally.

 

Something Q hints at again a week later with crumb #770:

 

DbbAJaiVAAACnin.jpg

 

Q’s direct appeal to Snowden in crumb 770 is a nice transition into the second part of our analysis: 

 

The Snowden of it all:

In 770 Q refers to Snowden as a liability now that Dolan, Swartz, and JPB are dead.

 

There has been a fierce debate between researchers which has focused on whether Snowden was a black hat turned white hat by Q-team, or if he was always a white hat masquerading as a black hat to infiltrate FTP and thwart the “powers-that-were” plans for SecureDrop.

 

This is a MUCH larger subject, with dozens of more Q crumbs (including real-time images of a pursuit and snatch & grab mission) which I can break down in greater detail in a different post since this one has already gone on too long.

 

For now I’ll give a brief overview of both possibilities before weighing in with my own opinion.

 

But before we get there, let’s finish our analysis of CrumbPrime:

 

DbbAqu4VAAAiVQ6.jpg

 

Let’s start with [Mr. Contractor].

 

We have established that Q’s use of brackets signify a kill box, a target. Here, Q is implying that the clock is ticking for Snowden and soon he will find himself in the kill box. Q refers to Snowden as Mr. Contractor, a direct reference to the idea that Snowden was, and remains, an active CIA NOC.

 

Remember, Snowden started out as a CIA officer before transitioning to a gun for hire for all sorts of IC agencies and contractors. This history, and Q’s subsequent Snowden crumbs, sparked much debate about Snowden’s true mission when he pilfered NSA files and released them through FTP board members Greenwald, Poitras, as well as the IC friendly The Guardian.

 

Did Snowden infiltrated NSA on behalf of CIA to expose their most sensitive data, in some sort of inter-agency pissing match, causing the public to distrust No Such Agency? Or was he truly working on his own and fighting for transparency like Swartz, JPB, and FTP were known for?

 

Let’s look at both theories briefly, starting with…

 

Snowden as a Black Hat:

 

Assuming Snowden was a CIA black hat all along, was infiltrating FTP and SecureDrop part of his mission as well?


When one looks at the evidence, it’s VERY possible.

In fact, there’s loads of circumstantial evidence that gives this theory weight. Let’s go back to FTP’s and Snowden’s connection to Omindyar. Remember, Omindyar has connections to not just Snowden, but also his former boss and the company where he was last a contractor for: Booz Hamilton:

 

DbbB5tbVAAECMG5.jpg

There’s even more:

 

DbbB-7sUQAEcRjf.jpg

 

DbbCAuzVwAA9eOg.jpg

 

Now, remember back to Omindyar’s tweet regarding leaks and leakers referenced earlier.

 

DbbCKE2UQAAPIFr.jpg

 

We’ve established Omidyar's connections to the IC and his desire to silence leakers – is it a stretch to say that Omindyar would see the value of working with Snowden to undercut FTP and SecureDrop on behalf of the CIA?

 

Absolutely not.

 

Snowden, like FTP itself, even began to take shots at WikiLeaks and Assange (the organization which ostensibly helped Snowden escape Hong Kong) – prompting this exchange on Twitter which adds more evidence to this black hat theory:

 

DbbCWUAV4AAgaM6.jpg

 

QAnon has dropped a handful of crumbs supporting this black hat theory, including #874:

 

DbbCa31VwAEZyCk.jpg

 

There was a lot of excitement in February as Q began posting a series of real time pictures seemingly tracking Snowden and pressuring him to “flip”. Here are a few to give you a sense (I can break down the decoding of these crumbs at another point):

 

Wb8gJrRtxmHytvZP-pic-png

 

7ErAiebTFwAtsnpZ-pic-png

 

SeZPMKaP2kJRF1sx-pic-png

 

Note - none of these pictures existed in any known website prior to Q's posts. 

 

The conclusion of this "real time" chase, was supposedly Snowden agreeing to work with Q's team (which was "confirmed" by Snowden on his twitter feed). 

 

That sums up the nuts and bolts of the Snowden as a black hat theory. It’s solid, compelling, and backed by evidence. Q’s crumbs add even more support to this theory through much of February and March of ’18.

 

But there is another possibility with regards to Snowden, one that’s less popular but must be discussed.

 

Snowden as a white hat theory:

This is the theory I personally am partial to, though it has less obvious Q support than the former theory.

 

The concept is simple: Snowden was tapped for a slow play mission designed to infiltrate and help oust the CIA elements from both FTP and SecureDrop.

 

To see this theory in full, let’s take a closer look at the timeline of SecureDrop and FTP:

 

DbbCytyVMAApB15.jpg

 

What if the white hats sniffed out the “powers-that-were” plans with FTP and SecureDrop after Swartz’s death and sent Snowden into the hornets’ nest as a double agent?

 

Possible?

 

Sure is. In fact, the tone of many of Q’s crumbs about Snowden seem on the surface to be hostile but upon further reflection are more like warnings. Direct communications – which Snowden himself (allegedly) begins to establish on the Q research boards beginning last month.

DbbDSaXVMAEGL8d.jpg

 

While I tend to lean towards the Snowden as a white hat theory, in reality the debate is moot. Regardless of his affiliations when he started, Snowden appears to be working with the Q team very publicly in recent weeks, helping Q-Team open the masses’ eyes to the !@#$ery afoot.

 

DbbDfGAV4AELfoT.jpg

CONCLUSION: The length of this thread explains why I don’t cover Q posts directly all that often. Each one can be its own book when done properly – and with CrumbPrime we have still only brushed the surface of the topic despite the heft of this post. 

 

While I cannot say for certain whether Snowden was always a white hat, nor can I say for certain who among FTP and SecureDrop are (or were) playing for the “powers-that-were”, the evidence leads me to conclude that SecureDrop through Tor and FTP has been heavily compromised by the “powers-that-were”.

 

The desire to control the narrative is clear.

Which narrative??

Basically, there is no way to assure this guy is 1) legit 2) just one person 3) the same, possibly legit poster of information, positing every post.

Bottom line, I think one may get more (political information and entertainment) from watching professional LARPers play a game of Dumbledore v. Dragons.

Well... that's kind of true. 

 

For #1 - yes, you're right. That's why I stated at the top I'm not interested as much in proving or disproving Q's authenticity, it's more compelling (to me) to deal with the information he drops, almost all of which can (and has) been validated. Q team could be, as I originally suspected, a very well versed group of people who have studied the esoteric and conspiracy circles for years and is playing a part... but that doesn't impact the information's validity which we can confirm for ourselves. 

 

For #2 - it's been proven that there are multiple Q team members posting. They often communicate with themselves on the board... such as:

 

T8GT0bjDbnIqCTVh-pic-png

 

This is an example of multiple Q team members trying to secure their comms (log into the board) or possibly discussing other operations in motion that day. 

 

As for #3 on your list, there is a way to tell it's Q, but it's something I left out of the introduction. The board owner where Q posts assigned a specific tripcode (the Q !UW.yye1fxo bit at the top of his posts) that only people with Q's password can use to post.

 

Q-team are the only ones who have a password for the board - and it serves as a way to validate legit Q from fake Q. There ARE fake Q's who try to use the same trip code (but it'll appear bolded in Fake Q's posts).
