QAnon: An FBI Psyop?

A man holds up a large "Q" sign while waiting in line to see President Donald J. Trump at his rally on August 2, 2018 at the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania.
A recent Reuters investigation may indicate that "Q Anon" was in fact an FBI cyber psyop.

The "Q Anon" phenomenon has generally been regarded as a hoax or prank, originated by online message board users in late October 2017, that got out of control. The "Q Anon" persona was preceded by similar personae, including "FBI anon", "CIA anon" and "White House insider anon".

"Q Anon" originally called himself "Q clearance patriot". Former CIA counterintelligence operative Kevin M. Shipp explained that an actual "Q clearance leaker" - i.e. someone possessing the highest security clearance at the US Department of Energy, required to access top secret nuclear weapons information - would have been identified and removed within days.

MindMatters: Pseudo-realities, Psychopathy and the Origins of Totalitarianism

wokeness
Fifteen years ago the world was introduced to the research of Polish psychologist Andrzej Łobaczewski in his seminal work Political Ponerology. In it, he outlined the danger of pathological revolutionary movements, the poisonous influence of psychopaths in positions of power, and the real origins of totalitarianism - as well as why relatively normal people are left woefully vulnerable to pathological thinking and psychological 'infection'. When the book was first published the "forever war on terror" Neocons were at the forefront in the United States, and the world is still reeling from their atrocious foreign policy, not to mention the Patriot Act. But times sure have changed since then, and with them, the rise of far-left pathologies whose scope and influence is nearly universal in Western society.

On Christmas Day of 2020, James Lindsay of "the grievance studies affair" fame published an important article on his website New Discourses: 'Psychopathy and the Origins of Totalitarianism.' Lindsay, a mathematician by training, is also an expert on the nonsense that is Critical Social Justice Theory (i.e. Wokeness). There's no one better to expose Woke ideology for what it actually is: psychopathic. So this week on MindMatters we discuss a range of topics stemming from Lindsay's article: Critical Race Theory, cancel culture, and the pipe dreams of revolution-induced utopia we're witnessing now in the West. Meet the new psychopathic fervors - same as the old ones. Using concepts from Ponerology like paralogic and paramorality, and Pieper's idea of pseudo-realities, Lindsay provides an indispensable account of what's really going on, peeling back the mask of the in-your-face thought virus threatening to sicken and destroy everything it touches.

The Pentagon Speaks

Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley
The Joint Chiefs of Staff have spoken. Issuing a remarkable memorandum to all members of the Armed Forces, the JCS have declared that Joe Biden will be the new president of the United States. The memo may have been not only one to military personnel but also to President Trump: No matter how convinced you are that the election was stolen from you, don't even think about remaining in power because we will ensure your forcible exit from the White House.

Unfortunately, relatively few people, including libertarians, comprehend that the Pentagon, along with the CIA and the NSA and, to a certain extent, the FBI, are the part of the federal government in which ultimate power is being wielded. They are the ones who are ruling the roost in America. That's why that memo is so important. It's declaring how things will be.

This overwhelming power is usually exercised behind the scenes in order to make Americans feel comfortable that their government is different from other national-security governments. While the national-security branch of the government is driving the overall direction America will take, especially with respect to foreign affairs, it permits the other three branches to maintain the appearance of power. The idea is to convince Americans that the federal government operates the same as a national-security state as it did when it was a limited-government republic.

Giuliani Presents Evidence - From Their Own Words - That Antifa & BLM Rioters Were at 'Insurrection' on Capitol Hill

John Earle Sullivan BLM Antifa Capitol Hill attack

One of the men who was part of the siege of the Capitol building is John Earle Sullivan, an extreme BLM activist from Utah.
Footage shot by self-proclaimed 'professional rioter' John Sullivan, and presented by Rudy Giuliani, is damning evidence of the pre-planned nature of the attack on the Capitol Building. In the video, Sullivan is shown in earlier uploads showing off his 'Black Bloc' tactical gear for wearing to riots, along with his assault weapons. Sullivan, on his own social media accounts, called for fellow activists to marshal in DC on January 6th to 'kick out the fascists' - namely, Trump supporters attending the Stop The Steal rally outside the White House.

In clips of the actual event, he is heard encouraging fellow thugs to set fire to the building. Sullivan was also (magically) the person who was right on the spot to film the murder of Ashli Babbit.

Comment: Here's another thing to consider: the trouble at the Capitol started before Trump's speech (which took place 45 minutes' walk away from the Capitol):

Psychological Attack on The UK

stay at home orders
We are in unprecedented times. Not because of the deadliest virus known to mankind, but because we have never been attacked with such ferocious psychological methods as is deliberately being done today by our UK and Scottish governments; measures to coerce us, manipulate us, to scare us, to shame us, and to make us shame other people for not following orders pertaining to COVID-19 measures.

We have been warned previously by many who suffered totalitarian communism in Eastern Europe. We were warned for many decades that such a moment would come to the West if we were not vigilant enough; unfortunately, it seems that our watchfulness has failed and our liberty has been stolen.

We have a lot to learn from history and from the great Russian writer and critic of Soviet communism, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, especially in our present era of the COVID-19 Brave New Normal. In his address to Harvard University in 1978, Solzhenitsyn said:
Many of you have already found out, and others will find out in the course of their lives, that truth eludes us if we do not concentrate our attention totally on its pursuit. But even while it eludes us, the illusion of knowing it still lingers and leads to many misunderstandings. Also, truth seldom is pleasant; it is almost invariably bitter. There is some bitterness in my speech too, but I want to stress that it comes not from an adversary, but from a friend.

Interview with Masako Ganaha

During the protests at the Capitol building on Jan. 6, among the five people killed was Air Force veteran Ashli Babbit. The behavior of several individuals around the violence, however, suggests that there was coordinated action among the agitators. To learn more about this we've invited to speak with us independent Japanese journalist Masako Ganaha.


Comment: The FBI is currently seeking information on the guy in question:


As for Sullivan, the BLM guy who filmed the shooting:

Objective:Health - Covid 1984: WHO Changes Definition of Herd Immunity

O:H header
Our reality continues to get more Orwellian by the day. A few months back the WHO quietly changed the definition of the term 'herd immunity' on their website from the definition that's been with us for about a century to a new one that indicates herd immunity is only possible through vaccination.

By changing the definition they are creating the perception that vaccination is the only way to deal with diseases of any kind, rather than the way life has dealt with them from the beginning of immune systems.

On top of this, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of the World Health Organization has said "Herd immunity is a concept used for vaccination, in which a population can be protected from a certain virus if a threshold of vaccination is reached," but, he explained, it is achieved by protecting people from the virus, "not by exposing them to it".

Join us on this episode of Objective:Health as we talk about herd immunity, then and now and the changing of language as a means of controlling discourse and populations.

NewsReal #32: Trump's Attempted Coup, or Successful Coup Against Trump?

newsreal capitol hill protest
January 6th 2021 was "the darkest day in American history," reported the media in unison. "9/11 all over again," they agreed.

The riot that followed the rally called by Trump - in his last-ditch effort to sway members of Congress to reconsider states' electoral college votes - was certainly chaotic and worthy of sensational headlines, but was the "insurrection on Capitol Hill" really an "attempted coup by President Trump"?

Joe Quinn and Niall Bradley discuss the extraordinary scenes within and outside the halls of Congress last week, placing the event (and the congressional session it overshadowed) in the context of four years of sustained media disinformation and political polarization that is reaching fever pitch.

What next for Trump? And for the American people?

'The Storming of the Capitol': America's Reichstag Fire?

capitol riot
The four big lies underpinning this story show it was likely a staged event.

The media are already spinning a narrative around the events in Washington DC. One that bears no resemblance to reality, does not hold up to any kind of scrutiny and will have massive, far-reaching consequences for all of us.

They're calling it "one of the darkest days in our nation's history", a day that will "live in infamy". It will likely be memed into a shorthand date - 1/6/21, like 9/11 and 7/7. It will be the day "American democracy was attacked and prevailed", the day the nation nearly fell to "fascists".

It will become just one more grand sweeping illusion upon which the teetering structures of US Imperial power are built.

MindMatters: Dr. George Simon: The Character Disturbance Epidemic and What We Can Do About It

george simon
In 1996 Dr. George K. Simon wrote and self-published In Sheep's Clothing: Understanding and Dealing with Manipulative People, almost single-handedly changing the 'self-help' landscape in the U.S. The book remains a best-seller. With decades of clinical research under his wing, Dr. Simon saw that a very large percentage of psychological and emotional issues people suffered from were due to the effects of the extremely manipulative individuals in their lives. Learning to recognize the signs and behaviors of such people would have to become a part of the process of not only protecting oneself from such persons, but also healing from their deleterious effects. Building on these insights, Simon went on to write Character Disturbance: The Phenomenon of Our Age, further explaining the gamut of what character-disturbed behavior looks like, both in others and in oneself.

This week on MindMatters we interview Dr. Simon about his work and the frameworks that have helped thousands to understand their relationships, as well as provided assistance for those wishing to look into the mirror of their own weaknesses, narcissism and failures of character - reminding us that while it's valuable to see the egregious behavior of others, it is also crucial to be able to recognize and correct our own failings.
