Reading the OP, he does not have much in the way of predicting the future, looking of course. Another internet idiot that needs attention.

From 2001 to 2005 there was an ongoing investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

Governments from around the world had donated to the “Charity”.

Yet, from 2001 through 2005 none of those “Donations” to the Clinton Foundation were declared.

Hmmm, now you would think that an honest investigator would be able to figure this out.

Guess who took over this investigation in 2002?

Bet you can’t guess.

No other than James “Wassup Homey” Comey.

Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

Guess who was transferred in to the Internal Revenue Service to run the Tax Exemption Branch of the IRS?

Your friend and mine, our favorite person in the whole world if you are a Tea Party Member, Pro-Life or a True the Vote supporter……. ding, ding, ding, ding Lois “Be on The Look Out” (BOLO) Lerner.

Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

It gets better, well not really, but I am sure this is all just a series of strange coincidences, right?

Guess who ran the Tax Division inside the Department of Injustice from 2001 to 2005?

No other than the Assistant Attorney General of the United States, Rod Rosenstein.

Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

Guess who was the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation during this timeframe?

I know, it’s a miracle, just a coincidence, just an anomaly in statistics and chances, Robert “Gestapo Bob” Mueller.

What do all four casting characters have in common?

They all were briefed and/or were front line investigators into the Clinton Foundation Investigation that James “Wassup Homey” Comey tanked in 2005.

Now that’s just a coincidence, right?

Ok, lets chalk the last one up to mere chance.

Let’s fast forward to 2009, shall we?

James “Wassup Homey” Comey leaves the Justice Department to go and cash-in at Lockheed Martin.

Hillary Clinton is running the State Department, on her own personal email server by the way.

The Uranium One “issue” comes to the attention of the Hildabeast.

Like all good public servants do, you know looking out for America’s best interest, she decides to support the decision and approve the sale of 20% of US Uranium to no other than, the Russians.

Now you would think that this is a fairly straight up deal, except it wasn’t, the People got absolutely nothing out of it.

However, prior to the sales approval, no other than Arkansas Bill goes to Moscow, gets paid 500K for a one hour speech then meets with Vladimir Putin at his home for a few hours.

Ok, no big deal right?

Well, not so fast, the FBI had a mole inside the money laundering and bribery scheme.

Guess who was the FBI Director during this timeframe?

Yep, no other than Robert “Gestapo Bob” Mueller.

He even delivered a Uranium Sample to Moscow in September 2009.

Guess who was handling that case within the Justice Department out of the US Attorney’s Office in the Southern District of Maryland?

No other than, Compromised Rod Einstein Rosenstein, the same guy who ran the Department of Justice Tax Division when James “Wassup Homey” Comey tanked the Clinton Foundation investigation back in 2005.
Interesting, huh?

What are the chances, seriously, what are the chances that this is nothing more than a “coincidence”.

Guess what happened to the informant?

The Attorney General Holder’s Department of Justice placed a GAG order on him and threatened to lock him up if he spoke out about it.

Interesting, huh?
I wonder who signed that Gag Order?
Was it Rod Einstein Rosenstein?
I digress…….

>>

How does 20% of the most strategic asset of the United States of America end up in Russian hands when the FBI has an informant, a mole providing inside information to the FBI on the criminal enterprise?

Guess what happened soon after the sale was approved?

~145 million dollars in “donations” made their way into the Clinton Foundation from entities directly connected to the Uranium One deal.

Guess who was still at the Internal Revenue Service working the Charitable Division?

No other than, Lois “BOLO” Lerner.

Interesting, huh?

Ok, that’s all just another series of coincidences, nothing to see here, right?

Let’s fast forward to 2015.

Due to a series of tragic events in Benghazi and after the 9 “investigations” by the House, Senate and at the State Department, Trey Gowdy who was running the 10th investigation as Chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi discovers what all the other “investigations” mysteriously and unexplainably couldn’t.
The Hildabeast ran the State Department on an unclassified, unauthorized, outlaw personal email server.
How could nine other “investigations” not find this out, well….. makes one wonder does it not? “Fixed”? I know it is all just another series of nine more coincidences.

He also discovered that none of those emails had been turned over when she departed her “Public Service” as Secretary of State which was required by law.

He also discovered that there was Top Secret information contained within her personally archived email.

>>

I will spare you the State Departments cover up, the nostrums they floated, the delay tactics that were employed, the obfuscation of obstruction of Congress and the outright lies that were spewed forth from the necks of the Kerry State Department, we shall leave it with this…… they did everything humanly possible to cover for the Hildabeast.

Now this is amazing, guess who became FBI Director in 2013?

Guess who secured 17 no bid contracts for his employer with the State Department and was rewarded with a six million dollar thank you present when he departed his employer?

No other than James “Wassup Homey” Comey.

Yes, the same “Public Servant” who tanked the Clinton Foundation Investigation all the way back in 2005.

Amazing how all those no-bids just went right through at State, huh?
New addition: In August of 2018, guess what Peter Sweitzer uncovers? Contracts the FBI held were awarded to?
Jim Comey at Lockheed Martin. Hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of contracts. Nothing to see here, move along…..

Now he is the FBI Director in charge of the “Clinton Email Investigation” after of course his FBI Investigates the Lois Lerner “Matter” at the Internal Revenue Service where millions of American Citizens Civil Rights were violated, evidence was “lost” and destroyed. Congressional Subpoena’s and do not destroy orders ignored.
Amazingly, the James “Wassup Homey” Comey FBI and the Holder/Lynch DOJ, what do they do?
They exonerate her and the IRS, wrap it up with a nice neat bow and declare……

Nope couldn’t find any crimes at the IRS.
Do you see a pattern?
All criminal enterprises have them.

Can you guess what happened next?

In April 2016, James “Wassup Homey” Comey drafts an exoneration letter of Hillary Rodham Clinton based upon an investigation that didn’t happen.

No Grand Jury was empaneled.

No subpoena’s were issued for witness testimony.

No search warrants were issued.

No evidence was gathered.

Unwarranted immunity deals were handed out like Halloween Candy to the principal defendants.

Evidence was lost and destroyed.

Then, like a lightning bolt of statistical impossibility, like a miracle from God himself, like the true “Gangsta” Homey is, James steps out into the cameras of an awaiting press conference on July the 5th of 2016, exonerating the Hildabeast from any wrongdoing.

I guess it is perfectly fine to have Top Secret SCI/SAP information in a barn in Chappaqua New York, a crapper in Boulder Colorado and hosted on the cloud out of New Jersey.

Can you see the pattern?

They never thought she would lose, a rigged election at that!!

Trump becomes the 45th President of the United States.

Panic sets into the Clinton Crime Family.

The Insurance Policy is put in place and set in motion.

Leaks, classified leaks fill the press to set the pretext for what was to come.

Rosenstein becomes Asst. Attorney General, Comey gets fired based upon a letter by Rosenstein, Comey leaks government information to the press to set up the “Special Counsel”, Mueller is assigned to the Russian Investigation sham by Rosenstein to provide cover for decades of malfeasance within the FBI, DOJ , State Department and other three letter agencies.

Do some homework on parallel reconstruction.

The story continues and we all have suffered because of it.

Watching Gestapo Bob and his Goose Stepping Henchmen destroy lives to try and make a case where none exists, as President Trump would say, is a National embarrassment.

FISA Abuse, political espionage, treason..... pick a crime, any crime, chances are...... this group and a few others did it.

All the same players.

All compromised and conflicted.

All working fervently to NOT go to jail themselves.

All connected in one way or another to the Clinton's and the Clinton Foundation.

They are like battery acid, they corrode and corrupt everything they touch.

How many lives have these two destroyed?

It cannot be numbered.

Incest, it’s Incestuous

As of this writing, the Clinton Foundation, in its 20+ years of operation of being the largest International Charity Fraud in the history of mankind, has never been audited by the Internal Revenue Service.
Is there supposed to be a point buried somewhere in that drivel?

That's right.

Our immigration policy has languished and kicked down the road since 1980. Both sides are to blame for not making concessions to get it done.

Grandstanding is for suckers.

Over the holidays you often speak with friends and relatives.

Comment on "Q" from an individual currently serving in the intelligence community, paraphrased:

"I can see where a guy might get pissed off about something and talk, hopefully not out-of-school, but put it in writing on the internet? no ******* way."

Other than that, the opinion on Q was laughter.

I think the Q brigade has reached its pinnacle with this tweet, mocking Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for Deep State antiTrumpism... (squints) sorry, for dancing - and worse, looking cute and fun - while in... college.

But he has the V for Vendetta mask and is a Q fan and all, so I guess he must have deep insight that all the people laughing at him don’t.

Someone noted that the moves are from Ally Sheedy’s dancing in Breakfast Club.

Ally Sherry has tweeted her approval.

Bubba, the quoted post was mostly the usual breathless gibberish that is practically “Q’s” trademark. But basically it’s innuendo based on a guy claiming, without any evidence whatsoever, that a bad program officially ended 4-1/2 decades ago is somehow still continuing. Part of the innuendo is citing an unrelated actual, useful research program intended to help disabled people control motor actions.

That’s a shameful smear. You ought to be embarrassed for repeating it.

More to the point of this thread, though, it highlights the desperate flimsiness of the “Q” nonsense. None of it is even original; it’s just some clown* flailing around citing random stuff as somehow supporting his laughable claims of special insights. It has nothing at all to do with his ridiculous claims. It’s just more burning dumpster smoke to cover up the endless failures of Q’s predictions. Yet this miasma is inhaled like fresh mountain air by Q’s cult of the determinedly ignorant.

Why would you want to be jerked around by cheap intellectual grifters like this?

*(Or, as some have suggested, clowns plural.)

If I may, I'd suggest the useful research program intended to help disabled people was cited only to point to what is possible, if not already more advanced in private labs.

Nope. I saw no smear of the legit research. I saw it only as an example (innuendo) of what is may be.


Nonetheless, I'd not be surprised if such good research was...well, you've probably heard of mad scientists.


How would we stay competitive if we didnt keep up ? (this is where one can think 'balderdash, that ended 4-1/2 decades ago' or admit to oneself something like 'well yes, I suppose such things are possible given mindset and money'

This seems relevant.

Quote:
The tools of the paranoid are denial, distortion, and projection. These psychological tools are almost always pathological when used to cope with the real world. For the user these three primitive psychological defenses permit a [hopefully temporary] rearrangement of external reality so that an actual, often unpleasant or painful reality may be avoided;

<snip>

Denial is a refusal to accept external reality because it is too threatening. There are examples of denial being adaptive (for example, it might be adaptive for a person who has a terminal illness to use some degree of denial). But for the most part, denial is only useful as a short-term strategy, to permit a person to come to terms with reality. As a long-term strategy to protect self-identity, it is potentially lethal--since the person or group that uses it extensively is blinded to the real danger that might be out there.

Distortion is a gross reshaping of external reality to meet internal needs. Hinchey's bizarre accusations against the evil genius Rove are a perfect example. It is more acceptable to believe that some evil person has tricked you, than it is to believe that you behaved stupidly.

Delusional Projection occurs when an individual or group have delusions about external reality, usually of a persecutory nature.

<snip>

Physiologically, anyone using these psychological strategies have some of short-circuit in their brain. That includes both those who are truly mentally ill with major psychiatric disorders; as well as those who, for psychological and psychosocial reasons, desire their brains to simulate mental illness in order to avoid reality. The only difference between the two is that the latter group have a potential to rediscover reality without any particular medication or treatment. A rediscovery may be painful; it may require a lot of soul-searching and an ability to face the unpleasant truth about themselves or their belief system, but insight and growth often are difficult processes.

Apollo hoax theory was more interesting to me as an exercise. Not about whether or not Apollo was a hoax, but rather considering whether and how it would even be possible to pull it off as a hoax.


BTW MK-Ultra proved what can happen in private with money and mindset.

Given the miserable track record of Q and Q's followers (by which I mean no credible leaked information, no successful predictions and no evidence for the ludicrous claims about red shoes etc.), what is it about this QAnon business that you find difficult to dismiss?
What is your timescale for 'watch and see'? End of Trump's first term? Something else?

I would then at least like for historians to note the significant proportion of us who felt it was all a bunch of hogwash :9.

I suspect that a Historian viewing it would either ignore it as insignificant or if they find it awash in a swamp of other failed/unproven contemporary CTs. It may warrant a footnote.

Bubba: If Q is real, why does he need to rely on mainstream media and published research for his information?

he doesn't need them.
He is generously letting them partake in his wisdom and insight.

If you call reading mainstream news and websites "open source intelligence gathering" it can sound really fancy.

ETA - my sources tell me that the sword of damocles hangs over the head of Q non-believers, many of whom are in fact reptilians.

Prosecutors say Wolfe stabbed his brother with the four-foot-long sword while he was hallucinating and believed the latter was a lizard posing as a human, something that local station KIRO 7 reported he later believed of detectives investigating the case. The Times wrote that court and jail documents show authorities are attempting to hold Wolfe without bail, saying he poses an extreme danger to the community:

He encouraged people to share QAnon graphics, telling his followers to “share this meme ammo.” He also made posts in the style of “Q,” the anonymous person or group of people giving the “clues” that have inspired QAnon, and posted links to the now-closed QAnon subreddit.

Because being quoted in The Sun will definitely add to his credibility.

(For the benefit of non-British members: The Sun is an appalling rag, noted for baseless articles, extreme sexism, nationalism and intolerance).
