To Q or Not To Q:
That is the Question Raging Though the Truther Movement
An Open Letter from Anons To Independent Media
To the few remaining in the Anti-#QAnon group, desperately screaming anything they can to discredit Q or any of Q’s “followers,” I would like to personally thank you for informing the masses that this is a PSYOP. Yes. It’s true. It’s a psychological operation initiated by military intelligence and propagated by civil effort. We are actively engaged in an attempt to inform our neighbors, our brothers, our sisters, our mothers and our fathers of the crimes and atrocities that have been committed over the last century on the backs of our nation’s unwitting citizens.
You have done more for our campaign than we could have done alone, and that is exactly how we intended it. At every step of the way, we have baited you to move in and to say too much, to give yourself away and so afraid you are, and so habitual it is, that you can not and have not resisted the temptation.
As anticipated, the coordinated attacks on #QAnon have arrived. Let’s take a moment to appreciate these independent journalists for finally confirming what Anons have been saying from the start.
#QAnon Is Not a LARP.
Now that we have that out of the way, let’s address the PSYOP allegation. What is a PSYOP? A PSYOP is a Psychological Operation, and more recently, the term is now used to refer to military individuals that are a part of Special Operations Forces that specialize in Military Information Support Operations (MISO).
The emblem of this particular part of Spec Ops Command is a chess piece — the Knight, in particular. It’s no surprise to us that in the dedicated #QAnon repository, the word “chess” can be found ten times, and in particular, the famous Capablanca game, referenced by Julian Assange on January 12, 2018, with the next move on the board being Queen to F3, or Q Fox Three.
Assange’s tweet came about a few weeks after Q’s Dec 18, 2017 “Fox Three” post addressing the future Hawaii missile threat. The missile warning was sent out just a day following Assange’s tweet on January 13, 2018.
How about a nice game of chess?
AS THE WORLD TURNS.
To condense that: Q references the Hawaii missile warning before it happens, to which Assange also makes a reference — a day before the alert goes out. Do not pretend not to know about the putrid sparring between WikiLeaks and Freedom Press Foundation, which managed to spawn elite and so-called alt-media journalists that share a financier with George Soros. We are not attacking Assange.
We know what happened to Aaron Swartz and James Dolan and we know why. We know who runs SecureDrop. Q told us about what would happen to Barlow as well. Assange himself sent out an image of rats feasting from a bowl of milk, calling it the FPF board meeting. We will root out these rats in all corners, honeypots for whistleblowers included. To say we are attacking WikiLeaks is to completely ignore the infestation. It’s ridiculous beyond measure.
Let’s look at the three-letter acronym that sits at the end of the table of the board of directors that funds WikiLeaks. And, even he can be useful.
As an example of the type of connections we are inclined to make, if you search for “F3 Nuclear,” you might find something to the effect of “Nuclear Effects in the F3 Structure Function For Finite and Asymptotic Q^2.”
Now, granted, this could be unrelated or it could be related. In any case, this “PSYOP” motivates a relatively large number of individuals to go digging through and searching primary sources to understand the myriad of complex interactions happening on the world stage. To the tune of over 1.5 Million Posts.

WikiLeaks Calls QAnon A Likely ‘Pied Piper’ Operation
By Caitlin Johnstone
A few months back I started having bizarre interactions on social media of a kind I’d never experienced previously. Suddenly, whenever I’d write about President Trump’s nonstop warmongering and capitulations to longstanding neoconservative agendas like implementing aggressive new cold war escalations against Russia [2.1]along multiple fronts, the illegal occupation of Syria with the stated goal of effecting regime change [2.2], increasing troop presence in Afghanistan [2.3], unprecedented civilian deaths in drone strikes [2.4], facilitating the slaughter of civilians in Yemen [2.5], or the administration’s open regime change policy against Iran [2.6], I’d get all these weird accounts telling me things like “Trust the plan” and “This is the Art of the Deal, Trump is playing 4-D chess”, and saying I should research something called “QAnon” or “Q”.
In response to a tweet [2.7]from Roseanne Barr asking “where is julian assange?”, the WikiLeaks account (which has long been a multi-user account run by a rotating WikiLeaks staff) [2.8] replied that he is “Gagged and isolated as a result of the Trump administration’s betrayal of the constitution and the demands of those who voted for it.” Barr, who has promoted QAnon in the past, replied that WikiLeaks’ answer was “BS”, to which they responded with Dawson’s thread. 
Steemit Only Article: Opinion: Why Independent Media Voices Are Questioning the “Q” Persona
In the last few days, a very loud discussion has been taking place regarding the legitimacy of an anonymous 4chan and 8chan poster known as “Q.” My singular goal in this Steemit-only opinion piece is to explain why, despite the ensuing public backlash, I have felt motivated as an independent journalist to express skepticism regarding the Q persona.
This article is not intended to demand readers agree with me, or tell readers what to think, to disparage those who cover Q on social media or those I’ve already disagreed with respectfully on Twitter. This piece is simply and only intended to explain why I have spoken out repeatedly against the credibility of this Chan-based persona. It’s also not intended to speak for anyone except myself.
I will give a very condensed overview of the context of the latest discussion on Q that has occurred in the last few days. First, independent journalist and activist Suzie Dawson wrote “a very long, precise and methodical twitter thread”  on the ways in which Q’s posts fit the characteristics of a standard co-intelpro type operation. I recommend all readers to view that “thread in full, as provided by the ReaderUnrollApp”  before continuing with this article. 
By: Suzie Dawson 
After more than 6 months of watching people get scammed by the #QAnon phenomena, I’m going to make the below thread to explain to you exactly why it is an intelligence agency-backed psyop, what techniques are being used, and why you need to stop people falling for it.
2. To achieve this, the operation moves through three phases.
PHASE 1: ESTABLISH CREDIBILITY.
It does this by appearing to leak insider information to the #QAnon audience. Making them feel that they are getting access to information that they otherwise wouldn’t be privy to
2d. Q employs gamification.
This is a technique frequently used by big data companies/corporates, surveillance companies, and intelligence agencies. It’s not enough for Q to simply tell you stuff outright. So it has to become a quiz. It has to be a puzzle. It has to become fun.
2e. Q professes to share the values and priorities of his/her/their target audience.
This creates a natural affinity between audience and Pied Piper. It creates a promise that if they follow Q, they will be led towards achieving the perfect outcomes that they hope and dream of.
3. Phase Two: MAKING IT SPIRITUAL
To build a truly evangelical following, the audience must become DEVOTED. Devotion is incredibly powerful. A devoted following is loyal and compliant, willing to silence their Devil’s Advocate inner tendencies, willing to extend their faith.
4. Phase Three: Shifting The Targets & Unleashing The Audience
These ops are not simply just like the day-to-day info ops where they want to make the audience believe false things. In order to unleash their full power, they have to shift focus & direct the audience to action.
4a. Slowly and subtly, the Pied Piper starts to shift the direction. Where Q started out focusing on the int agencies/Deep-State-Will-Be-Drained promises, he begins to start drawing other figures into his narratives. Edward Snowden. Julian Assange.
Targets of the Deep State.
4b. This is where Q’s stated motives begin to fall apart.
We don’t even have to ask who benefits. We can just start asking some other really basic questions. Who does the Deep State want dead or in jail, more than anyone else?
Edward Snowden, Julian Assange & Kim Dotcom.
4c. Therefore, what is the most subversive thing that an opponent of the Deep State can do?
Clue: not reading #QAnon all day every day on the internet.
Taking action in support of Edward Snowden, Julian Assange and Kim Dotcom.
THAT is what the Deep State don’t want you to do.
4d. The reason I am mentioning Kim Dotcom is not because of Q, but because Ed, Julian and Kim are all being prosecuted in the Eastern District Court of Virginia. The home of the CIA.
All three are being targeted by massive operations undertaken by the same intelligence agencies
4h. So when Q started telling people to look into Snowden and his family, I smelled a rat instantly.
The only people who want you digging dirt on Snowden are the people who want him dead or in jail.
And those people ARE THE DEEP STATE.
5e. And what is the name of the NSA group tasked with hunting down Snowden for having leaked such powerful information to the world?
The Q Group.
As revealed in June 2013, the week of Snowden’s first disclosures:
6. Now I’m going to cover off a few common sense indicators that the Q operation is tolerated at best, or helped to grow at worst, by the same forces that it supposedly stands in opposition to.
Then I will address the common themes of the questions I’m being asked in replies
7a. “But Q teaches us to research and think for ourselves”
No. The internet and social media has taught us to research. Access to alternative sources of information has taught us to think for ourselves.
What Q does is get you to research what Q wants you to research.
7b. …and in doing so, Q is commandeering and directing your use of your time.
The vagueness of the posts is intentional. It’s not just gamification, it’s a time-sink. A deliberate rabbit hole. Whistleblowers don’t do this. They say “here is the info, straight up”. No games.
7b. “but what about the pedos? Don’t you believe there are pedos in govt?”
That there are pedos in the highest echelons of global political power has been known for at least 3 decades. Victims campaigning ultimately resulted in the #CSAinquiry years before #QAnon or #DNCLeaks.
7c. “but what about the 13,000 secret indictments? That will drain the swamp!”
The people aren’t the problem, the systems are the problem. In the NSA’s own words in its docs, “the global network”. 100+ countries are involved. This is bigger than the US election or US politics.
7g. “But how did he know what Trump would tweet??”
Int agency technique:
When NSA was recently outed trying to cultivate Russian sources, they had told the Russian sources what they would tweet from the official NSA Twitter account before they tweeted it duckduckgo.com/?q=NSA+twitter… 
7h. “Why are you doing this? Why try to discredit Q?”
I observed but didn’t judge or form an opinion about the Q stuff for a long time. I knew time would tell the true colours behind it. As soon as I saw it targeting Deep State targets, rather than the Deep State, game was up.
8b. Under-the-radar Snowden revelation #1:
It is nonsense that the CIA & NSA are in competition. They are the left & right arm of the executive. NSA collects data, CIA acts on it.
CIA gives awards to NSA employees:
It is not strange that Snowden worked at CIA before working at NSA. Staff from Directors of the agencies on down to low-level employees move back and forward between the agencies.
8c: Under-the-radar Snowden revelation #2: in NSA documents it admits that the US military deployments are for oil, not human rights or any other nonsense excuse they tell the public:
8d. Under-the-radar Snowden revelation #3:
The intelligence agencies were planning their “global system” well over a decade ago. They want to control the entire planet.
Screenshot from: 
We are told about compartmentalisation occurring at high levels. NSA docs say the opposite. They say lower levels are subject to compartmentalisation, execs see all
8f: Under-the-radar Snowden relevation #5:
The NSA is like the Eye of Sauron but where that eye is directed is determined by its “customers”. Which includes not just US gov departments but also the Federal Reserve Bank
Docs:  Dynamic Methods of Interaction with New and Existing Customers
&  The Washington Liaison Office Who Are Those Guys
8g: Under-the-radar Snowden revelation #6:
The NSA are absolutely obsessed with not getting their budget cut. That is what they fear more than anything else. Shut down the $$? Shut down the tyranny.
Screenshot from: 
The NSA internally bragged about being responsible for the false intelligence presented to the UN that led to the Iraq War.

9. If you are interested in exposing the real Deep State & learning what they don’t want you to know, there is tons more info in my tweet history, website, You Tube channel, etc.
But most importantly of all: call for the emancipation of Julian Assange & support whistleblowers!!
