Let’s analyze some #QAnon crumbs, something this account has never done nor plans on making a habit of doing regularly.
I’ve tried my best to keep it clear and entertaining despite its length.
So settle in and get comfy because we’re going to cover a lot of ground.
Control the information >> Control the narrative >> Control the masses
It’s a practice that dates back to time immemorial.
It’s one of the oldest tricks in the book for a reason: it works.
These are old Q crumbs, which means many others have already brilliantly decoded and covered them.
FTP began in late 2012, founded by John Perry Barlow and a group of luminaries from the world of journalism, activism, and tech – including Julian Assange.
The partnership between Assange and FTP – and how it fell apart recently – will be examined in greater detail later in the thread…
Before co-founding FTP with Assange and others, JPB was a lyricist for the Grateful Dead. Later in life he became a celebrated internet activist, forming EFF, among other endeavors, and even penning a Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace:
On the surface, SecureDrop is an open source whistleblower submission system, providing a safe and secure way for whistleblowers to leak sensitive information to the media through its conjunction with Tor (a connection we will return to).
Kevin Poulson, the only surviving co-founder of SecureDrop, and JPB are both quoted in the article.
The vid is lead off by Poulson himself:
After Swartz’s death, Poulson partnered with FTP, JPB, Assange, and others to turn DeadDrop into SecureDrop.
The Washington Post
The “Snowden of it all” is a controversial subject which we will unravel towards the end of this thread…
Starting (of course) with the last bit:
The use of brackets in Q posts signify a kill box. A target in other words, sometimes of bad actors, sometimes of Q-team’s assets.
It was the specific use of brackets in this crumb inspired this entire thread…
Talk about insidious…
Problem is, that’s just not true.
Starting with Pierre Omidyar...
The billionaire founder of eBay, and now owner of PayPal who led the financial blockade against @wikileaks which inspired the formation of FTP in the first place.
Omidyar financed the Intercept with FTP board members Greenwald and Portias in 2014.
Put a pin in this tweet as we will circle back to it when we dive deeper into Snowden’s allegiances…
Who buys that?
There’s enough smoke around the sudden mood change within FTP to take this question seriously.
Poulson wrote a story for WIRED wherein he named Manning as a whistleblower before the arrest had been public, prompting Poulson’s ethics to come under fire:
This influence seems to have motivated, at least in part, the split between FTP and Assange…
To tell this part of the story we have to turn our attention to SecureDrop’s reliance on TOR.
I recommend checking out the links below:
We have dissected just a small nugget of #CrumbPrime but have found seriously compromising IC fingerprints on both FTP and SecureDrop that should alarm transparency and privacy advocates alike.
Possibly there was more to the story, as #QAnon alludes to the evening of Barlow’s death with a callback to crumb #634:
We have established that Q’s use of brackets signify a kill box, a target. Here, Q is implying that the clock is ticking for @Snowden and soon he will find himself in the kill box.
Remember, Snowden started out as a CIA officer before transitioning to a gun for hire for all sorts of IC agencies and contractors.
Let’s look at both theories briefly, starting with…
Assuming Snowden was a CIA black hat all along, was infiltrating FTP and SecureDrop part of his mission as well?
#Q’s crumbs add even more support to this theory through much of February and March of ’18.
Snowden as a white hat theory:
The concept is simple: Snowden was tapped for a slow play mission designed to infiltrate and help oust the CIA elements from both FTP and SecureDrop.
In fact, the tone of many of Q’s crumbs about Snowden seem on the surface to be hostile but upon further reflection are more like warnings.
That’s why we are all working hard here, on our own platforms and in our own way to spread truth and information as far and as wide as we can.
