The scientist is not a person who gives the right answers, he is one who asks the right questions.

By Martin Geddes

We are at war. Until now it has been a shadow conflict, conducted largely out of sight of the public. In the last few weeks it has begun to unmistakably break through into the open. There is nothing else in the tech-telecom world that comes close to it in importance, which is why I write about it in preference to everything else. To pretend otherwise would be a dishonourable act of omission.

This war is for the most important territory on the planet: your mind and spirit. It is a real war, being conducted by the formal military against a highly organised opponent. The enemy is not a foreign country, but instead comprises traitors and criminals in our midst. Whilst it has a traditional kinetic component — bombs, lasers and drones — its defining weapons are memetic. Surveillance, counter-intelligence and propaganda are the new longbows, armour and missiles.

Longstanding readers will know that I am not stupid or silly. Being human, I have the occasional foolishness or misadventure, but my intellect and integrity are both fully intact. There is a good reason why I am forcefully presenting things that may make you feel uncomfortable: there is going to be no way of avoiding these matters in the very near future. Everyone is going to be confronted with diametrically opposing narratives, and will have to make a choice over which one to believe and act upon.

You are likely to have seen one of the many articles in the mainstream media in the past week on #QAnon. Each one of them warns you of how this is a “dark”, “right-wing” and “dangerous” movement. The loaded term “conspiracy theory” is used over and over, warning you of the shameful and fearful social consequences of being associated with this movement.

My position is well known: Q is instead a military operation by “white hats”against the corrupt and criminal “deep state”, being led by the NSA and Marines. The mass media has been infiltrated and compromised for decades, being used as a tool of social control. The #QAnon programme is a fifth-generation warfare technique to destroy the credibility and power of the #FakeNews media.

This has come to a head because at the Tampa rally, Trump supporters were allowed to bring in placards, which are usually banned for safety and security reasons. Many of them included messages about Q and WWG1WGA. This forced the hand of the media to cover the story, since further ignoring it would be such a telling silence that it could awaken the sleeping masses.
Here are some questions I would like you to ponder, so you can decide for yourself which way the truth might lie.

1. Why has not a single one of these media organisations asked President Trump whether Q is legitimate, since this would immediately resolve the matter for everyone? How do you account for this journalistic lapse in elementary data gathering before publishing a story slurring such a large group of ordinary people?

2. Why do they not cite or rebut Q’s drops, as would be normal journalistic practise in disproving something of factual debate? If they are self-evidently false, this should be trivially easy. Why do you think they refuse to engage on the facts, but offer emotive innuendo in its place?

3. Why is there no mention of the 45,000 sealed indictments (50x growth over normal), signifying impending mass arrests? This is a matter of public fact and record — as are the unprecedented CEO resignations (very few being rehired…) and politicians withdrawing from office. What’s your hypothesis for this omission?

4. Why is there no concomitant coverage of the significant increases (5x over past) in arrests and convictions for human trafficking and child pornography, yet there are constant protestations that widespread “elite” paedophilia (aka “pizzagate”) is a “debunked” matter? The press coverage of the sensational NXIVM cult trial — implicating those close to the Clinton Foundation with child sex slavery — is spectacularly muted. How do you account for this silence, given what Q tells us?

5. Why are the dozens and dozens of strong links between Q and the Trump administration given no credence? (Here are 45 for you to begin with — this would easily get you beyond the standard of proof for a court case.) Q encourages people to think for themselves, whereas you are being told by the MSM what to believe and ignore the evidence in front of your own eyes. How do you make sense of this data not being presented to you?

6. How come none of these organisations deemed #QAnon newsworthy before the Tampa rally, yet it is a movement that is suddenly threatening to the wellbeing of democracy and society? How do you account for this timing and the coordinated message using identical terminology? (Although apparently following Q is simultaneously “fringe” and “wildly popular”!)

7. These same organisations overwhelmingly supported Hillary Clinton for President, and wrongly predicted her win right up until the last minute. They have widespread and documented links to the Democratic party, both legitimate (as donors) and illegitimate (illegal and unethical relationships documented by Wikileaks). Are they dispassionate reporters of fact, or active players in the political game attempting to shape the narrative? How might it affect their reporting on Q?

8. Given that these media reports make many basic factual errors, are they credible journalism? Here’s one (from the Guardian):
Turn Them Off! #QAnon and the collapse of #FakeNews media

Q has never posted on Reddit. Does this suggest familiarity with the subject matter, or profound ignorance?
You are very soon going to have to decide whether these media organisations are involved in transnational criminal racketeering, and collusion with mafia-like entities embedded into government. It will only take a single tweet from President Trump — flagged up by one of Q’s first messages — to end the debate. This single message would destroy all these yellow journalists, forever:

This would explicitly confirm that Q is an agent of the Trump administration. At that point every single damning article about Q as a “conspiracy theory” becomes a perpetual condemnation of its author and publisher. Such confirmation could come in many other forms — this being just one possibility. The #FakeNews media trap has been set by Q, the bait has now been taken, and the gory denouement is approaching.

That moment of reckoning is inevitable, even if I cannot predict when: today, this week, this month, or even later in the autumn. It is a “slow walk” leading up to the US mid-term elections, and you never reveal your plans to the enemy in advance. The worst will doubtless be revealed close to that November date for maximum destructive impact. The #FakeNews media is being given adequate time to manufacture the rope by which it will send itself to the gallows of infamy.

I believe that you are seeing a carefully scripted military operation play out. The mass media’s audience is an active part of the direction of the play. In this spiritual fight against evil masquerading as virtue, everybody is on the information warfare battlefield, like it or not. The next few weeks and months promise to be quite a ride. As Q has stated 28 times so far: “enjoy the show”.

This is not a game, it is the real deal. You have a responsibility to yourself and your family to make good choices. Consider my questions very carefully. Imagine how criminals working to usurp your freedom and security would act if they controlled the mass media. Who do you think is telling the truth, when nobody else tells you what to believe?

Listen to your heart for the answers, for it cannot ever lie.

Legitimate journalism, or mafia media threat against free-thinking patriots who resist their social and mind control techniques?

ON CAPITOL HILL
SENATE ADVANCES FAST-TRACK TRADE BILL FOR OBAMA
Cruz: ‘Corrupt Congress enmeshed in backroom deal-making’

House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and President Barack Obama
WASHINGTON – The Republican-dominated Senate has given President Obama what he wants: so-called “fast-track” authority to negotiate massive trade deals with other countries, cut Congress out of the negotiations and limit lawmakers’ participation to a simple yes or no vote when such treaties are concluded.

A cloture vote to cut off debate needed 60 votes to pass. It received exactly 60 yes votes, with 37 opposed, meaning final passage of the Trade Promotion Authority, or TPA, is now just a formality.


The bill squeaked by in the House last week by vote of 218 to 208 and will soon go to the president’s desk to be signed into law.

Opponents of the deal, led by Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., were not quite able to round up the no votes needed, even though Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, changed his vote to a no, after voting yes four weeks ago.

In an op-ed published Tuesday, Cruz explained that, while he believes free trade is good for America, much had come to light since his first vote.

“TPA in this Congress has become enmeshed in corrupt Washington backroom deal-making, along with serious concerns that it would open up the potential for sweeping changes in our laws that trade agreements typically do not include.

“Despite the administration’s public assurances that it was not negotiating on immigration, several chapters of the TiSA (Trade in Services Agreement) draft posted online explicitly contained potential changes in federal immigration law. TPA would cover TiSA, and therefore these changes would presumably be subject to fast-track.

“Second, TPA’s progress through the House and Senate appears to have been made possible by secret deals between Republican leadership and the Democrats.”

One of those deals appeared to be a promise to bring up for a vote a re-authorization of the Export-Import Bank before its charter expires at the end of the month. It is an institution favored by many Democrats and establishment Republicans.

“The Ex-Im Bank is a classic example of corporate welfare,” wrote Cruz. “It is cronyism at its worst, with U.S. taxpayers guaranteeing billions of dollars in loans for sketchy buyers in foreign nations. Ex-Im is scheduled to wind down on June 30. But powerful lobbyists in Washington want to keep the money flowing.”

Opposition to the deal made for strange bedfellows. Joining the conservatives Cruz, Sessions and Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, were ultra-leftists Sens. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., Al Franken, D-Minn., and Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.

The House technically did pass the Trade Promotion Authority, or TPA, bill twice. But in order to ensure ultimate passage, a controversial provision was dropped the second time, one that was originally included in the Senate version of the bill. It was called Trade Adjustment Assistance, or TAA, which would have provided money to workers who lose their jobs as a result of foreign trade.

Since the Senate and the House had not passed the same version of TPA, it could not go to the president for his signature without changes.

TPA then went back to Senate, where the TAA provision was dropped from its version, in order to match the House bill.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, have both vowed to revive votes on TAA this week.

Rank and file Democrats and Republicans both opposed TAA, but for opposite reasons: Democrats wanted the assistance extended to public-sector workers, while conservatives wanted the provision eliminated entirely as an unnecessary welfare measure in a bill supposedly designed to create jobs.

But numerous Democrats and Republican have opposed TPA for the same reason: it would cut Congress out of negotiations.

Many Democrats are also concerned massive trade deals would lower wages and cost American jobs, while a number of Republicans are concerned such agreements would bind the U.S. to the rulings of international bodies outside the control of American law.

Sessions, who has been leading the charge against TPA, is alarmed it would create an international legal body akin to the European Union, one that would have vast powers to change U.S. law, outside of the control of Congress.

He has said one effect would be the bypassing of U.S. immigration laws, greatly increasing the number of foreign workers allowed into the country, costing Americans jobs and depressing wages.

Sessions penned an open letter on Sunday that claimed reams of new information have been exposed since the Senate last voted on TPA more than four weeks ago, including “information that was either not known or understood when the vote was held.”

Much of that information regards the Trans-Pacific Partnership, or TPP, a monumental trade deal between the U.S. and Pacific Rim nations that would almost certainly be passed into law, as would all “fast-tracked” trade deals, should TPA become law.

Sessions listed the problems:

TPP includes the administration’s pledge to impose “environmental governance.”
TPP would lead to the formation of a new Pacific Union, “an enduring, self-governing political entity with vast regulatory power. Yet fast-track – which has led without fail to the adoption of every covered agreement since its inception – would rush it through with less legislative scrutiny than a Post Office reform bill.”
“The president has refused to answer the most simple but crucial questions about how he plans to use fast-track powers. He will not even answer whether he believes his plan will increase or reduce the trade deficit, increase or reduce manufacturing jobs, or increase or reduce wages.”
“In addition to the TPP are the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and the Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA). Together they encompass three-fourths of the world economy, and up to ninety percent of the world economy when including countries whose membership is being courted.”
“The texts of TTIP and TiSA remain completely secret –unreviewable by lawmakers themselves – yet fast-track would authorize the executive to sign them before Congress votes.”
“The president would send Congress legislation to change U.S. law to comport with these new agreements, legislation which cannot be amended, which senators cannot filibuster, cannot receive a two-thirds treaty vote, and cannot be debated for more than 20 hours.”
“The Ways and Means Committee has also now conceded that, as an unprecedented ‘Living Agreement,’ the union could change its structure, rules, regulations and enforcement mechanisms after final ratification – a dangerous and unjustifiable power.”
“TiSA would seek foreign worker mobility among 50 nations, including between the United States, Turkey and Pakistan.”
Sessions issued this statement Tuesday after the Senate voted to advance fast-track executive authority:

Americans increasingly believe that their country isn’t serving its own citizens. They need look no further than a bipartisan vote of Congress that will transfer congressional power to the Executive Branch and, in turn, to a transnational Pacific Union and the global interests who will help write its rules.

The same routine plays out over and again. We are told a massive bill must be passed, all the business lobbyists and leaders tell us how grand it will be, but that it must be rushed through before the voters spoil the plan. As with Obamacare and the Gang of Eight, the politicians meet with the consultants to craft the talking points—not based on what the bill actually does, but what they hope people will believe it does. And when ordinary Americans who never asked for the plan, who don’t want the plan, who want no part of the plan, resist, they are scorned, mocked, and heaped with condescension.

Washington broke arms and heads to get that 60th vote—not one to spare—to impose on the American people a plan which imperils their jobs, wages, and control over their own affairs. It is remarkable that so much energy has been expended on advancing the things Americans oppose, and preventing the things Americans want.

For instance: thousands of loyal Americans have been laid off and forced to train the foreign workers brought in to fill their jobs—at Disney, at Southern California Edison, across the country. Does Washington rush to their defense? No, the politicians and the lobbyists rush to move legislation that would double or triple the very program responsible for replacing them.

Miriam Carey

This ‘econometarian’ ideology holds that if a company can increase its bottom line —whether by insourcing foreign workers or outsourcing production—then it’s always a win, never a downside.

President Obama, and allies in Congress, have won this fast-track vote. But, in exchange, they may find that they are losing something far greater: the trust of the American people. Americans have a fundamental, decent, and just demand: that the people they elect defend their interests. And every issue to come before us in the coming months will have to pass this test: does this strengthen, or weaken, the position of the everyday, loyal American citizen?
