1) Black Hats, White Hats, and the Reckoning.
2) There's a lot of debate about the motives and loyalties of various people in the FBI & DOJ, most notably, Rod Rosenstein, Robert Mueller, and Chris Wray but others are the subject of speculation, as well.
3) People who have righteous or noble motives behind their actions are sometimes called "white hats."

People with corrupt motives are sometimes called "black hats."

People who are compromised but who are helping the cause of good are sometimes called "grey hats."
4) The real motives of some of these people will likely be exposed when the OIG report on FISA abuse is made public.
5) Some political commentators have chosen to apply labels to many of these players to help them understand the larger picture.

There is a degree of risk in assigning a "white hat" or "black hat" label to someone before all the facts are known about their motives and behaviors.
6) The risk is that you may end up being proven wrong.

The upside is that you may be proven right.

And temptation is feeling entitled to tell the world just how right you've been all along.
7) I don't know anyone who finds boasting to be a positive attribute.
8) I've chosen to not to (publicly) say whether I believe these people are white hats or black hats because that decision locks you into a mindset that I don't like.

Allow me to explain.
9) Once you make the mental decision that a particular person is good (a white hat) or bad (a black hat) from that point on, you'll tend to look for information that confirms that belief and you'll interpret any new data in a way that it confirms that belief.
10) I've been amazed at the logical gymnastics people perform to make a news story conform to their existing beliefs.

The effect confirmation bias has on our ability to logically and rationally evaluate data is greater than we know.
11) I try to take in new data and evaluate it objectively, (although I do have strong beliefs about certain people). Rather than put a white or black hat on people, I try to let the data lead me in whatever direction seems most logical and most consistent with the existing facts.
12) Because I haven't publicly put white or black hats on most of these people, I won't be taking any victory laps when the facts are made public.
13) But because I haven't staked my reputation on someone being a white hat or black hat, I won't be deleting a lot of tweets or apologizing to my followers for getting it wrong.
14) For me, it's not about correctly predicting in advance who the good guys and bad guys are. It's about accurately weighing each piece of evidence and coming to logical conclusions without going through unnecessary gymnastics.
15) For those who are chuckling because I said I prefer to take a logical approach, but you know I follow Q, my statement it isn't as illogical as you might think.
16) I read the same news articles everyone else does. I listen to a lot of political commentators. I gather information from many sources (including God) and Q and I do a ton of sifting and evaluation.
17) I don't consider half of what I read to be legitimate information.

Much of what comes from mainstream sources is primarily disinformation.
The media simply doesn't admit that.
But being forewarned is forearmed.
18) Q has told his readers that he provides disinformation and why it's necessary.

When you study game theory, you begin to understand the strategy behind disinformation.

That makes it easier to determine what is disinformation and what isn't.
19) Although Q provides disinformation he has correctly highlighted dozens of important events months before the media or twitter pundits discovered them.
20) Q provides information. Twitter thread makers provide information. The President provides information. Fox News analysts provide information. CNN provides information.
21) All information is not equally true nor equally valuable.
But a wise person is able to discern truth from error, dark from light.
They're able to evaluate data and make proper determinations about it.
22) The coming OIG report isn't the final word on any of this.
If this were a baseball game, the OIG report on the Clinton email investigation would be the first inning.
The McCabe report was the 2nd inning.
The Comey report was the 3rd inning.
The FISA report is the 4th inning.
23) None of those reports would be likely to lead to prosecution.
They're internal affairs reports on whether employees violated policy and procedure.

Criminal referrals may or may not come from the next OIG report but it doesn't matter.
24) John Huber and John Durham along with other US attorneys have been investigating allegations of public corruption. Their findings are the 5th and 6th innings of the game.

AG Barr may be doing his own investigation. We'll need a 7th inning stretch after hearing from him.
25) Manage your expectations about the coming reports.
Until the sealed indictments are unsealed, there's no way of knowing who is going down or for what.
It's a marathon, not a sprint.

Pray for justice.
26) The reckoning is coming.
