1. Twitter drama over a simple request to "clean this up". Oh well, here's the backstory (with all citations).
2. So on Tuesday evening several people I follow were promoting an upcoming episode of show. "Don't miss", "Must Watch" etc. OK, I'm interested in keeping abreast of the latest so I'm in.
3. Show lead-in sounds good.... Looks like a notepad might be a good idea. [Read the Promotion] Wow. Blockbuster stuff. Awesome. MAGA. Beats the MSM.
4. The show introduced to two former "intelligence officers", "government officials" with some explosive "*insider information*". Robert Caron (sp?) and Joshua Macias.
5. The pre-show promotion material.
6. And we're off.... [Here's the show] Strongly suggest watching for context.

7. Taking notes. Paying attention. Then this: 'United States Attorney John Huber has 450 investigators assigned to the FBI and DOJ investigation'. Really? Dude, that's great.... But wait, are we sure about that? How do they know?
8. Pause. Seems a little too good... Great news; but, for real? Ehhh... I've been following this pretty close and I've never heard that. So, just to be safe, I ask "who vetted these two former "intelligence officials" for this enterprise?"
9. Response from a show promoter (name withheld): "Vet them yourself. They gave their names."

OK. Note to self, make sure to vett.
10. Reminder this is Tuesday Sept. 4th. Something about the presentation doesn't seem right. Jot down the information about the websites being promoted. "ReportForThePresident" (dotcom) and "VoterTruth" (dotcom). Sounds interesting. Watch:
11. The curt "vet them yourself" didn't inspire confidence. So as soon as show ended, looked them up. No domain existed, and weirdly, no domain name purchased.

[Heck, I could have bought those domains Tuesday night.]
12. And I wasn't the only one who noticed it... Seemed weird, if putting this much effort into promotion, exclusive *insider* etc. Not to have already bought the domain names. Odd. But oh well, benefit of the doubt n' all.
13. Mental note, check back Friday Sept 7th. That's when Ann, Robert and Joshua said said the sites would be live with the material to support the claims in the Tuesday Sept 4th broadcast.
14. Friday 7th was a non-eventful news day other than Papadopoulos. 7:00pm check for those websites. That's odd, still not there. But vetting reminder: "vet them yourself".
15. Rut Roh, vetting of Joshua Macias reveals it's an alias. Aka Joshua Blum [w/ sketchy business networks] But hey, stuff happens.
16. Not disqualifying.... just a note to self. Financial matters. Multiple accounts.
17. Hmmm... "Vet them yourself". Wouldn't the promoter have already done this checking? Surely, yes. So, no cause for alarm.
18. But this "two federal agents" claim is entirely inaccurate (being diplomatic).... and it's everywhere.
19. It's not an accidentally everywhere. It was the presented bona-fides as (mis)interpreted. [See 00:30] "two former intelligence officials" 160,000 + views. Lots of people.
20. "Former IC Officials"
21. Oh but wait...... Keep in mind I'm following a sequence here. I'm waiting on the website to show up.... and "vetting them myself" as instructed.... and finding nothing to support the espoused curriculum vitae, but instead find THIS: *MUST WATCH*
22. 🤔Joshua E Macias, aka Joshua E Blum, (not an intelligence official) on how to make money by creating websites on the internet. Hmmmm..... a bit more troubling. Especially considering....
23. Wow, Josh Blum/Macias (not a government official) (not an intelligence official) is also a "biotech innovator"; "working on his phd." Dude, this guy must be an absolute genius.
24. Which is why I must have been told: "vet him yourself". Must be.
25. But then again.... I'm waiting for the website and wondering: wait, didn't I already look at a website all about this "intelligence network" stuff they're now building a website to promote? jtfmaga.com/team
26. Finally, here it comes..... they finally bought the domain name and are building it. Perhaps all the questions are soon to be answered.
27. And when it's done, built and published. What's on the home page?
28. Seriously?
29. You know what else is on the home page?
30. The originating video: reportforthepresident.org
31. Which makes this rather a disingenuous, albeit technically accurate, statement.
32. Now to be fair, when Mr. Joshua Macia/Blum was called out on it, he removed the payment aspect. But that still doesn't moderate all concerns.
33. And then this was just icing on the proverbial collapsing integrity cake:
34. Yes, I'm aware Mr. Drake is vehemently against President Trump. And that makes it worse. Why would you promote an anti-trumper IC official as an intelligence enhancements (on a site built for the President) unless the entire enterprise was sketchy?
35. Which brings me to the earnest request of @mitchellvii and @annvandersteel earlier today to get out in front of their non-vetted promotion, take ownership, and publicly "clean this up"; if possible. Which was, apparently, a bridge too far. I digress.
36. Twitter.
