Q Anon: 6/29/18 FRiendly FReeper Collaboration to understand Q drops
qanon.pub ^ | 6/29/2018 | FReepers, vanity

Posted on 06/29/2018 10:40:30 PM PDT by ransomnote

This thread is a friendly collaborative place for FReepers to analyze information and share opinons. FReepers have a wide variety of reasons for investigating Q Anon content; this is not the appropriate place to criticize or badger those who choose to use some of their time in this manner.

"Who is Q?" and "Why read Q drops?"

The following video (13 min.) is by far the most popular FReeper recommended source of information for those new to Q Anon.
Q - The Plan To Save The World

The following is an excellent overview written by sundance at Conservative Tree House.
Imagine You are Not a Politician, Yet You are Running For The Presidency…

The following video (4 min.) provides a very quick overview.
Who is Q - video available on Youtube

FReeper reviewers have given the following PDF a thumbs-up.
The Book of Q (PDF)

Finding and Understanding Q Drops

Q "drops" (i.e., posts) can be read with their original formatting on a few different verified websites. Sometimes the Q drop websites come under cyberattack or stop updating. This week, I've been using the following link:
https://qanon.pub

Q drops sometime use unfamiliar acronyms, references, names and locations of significance. Swordmaker maintains a list of these terms to help FReepers understand Q drop text. The master list, called the LexiQon, is stored on Swordmaker's profile page, and he posts the latest updates within the threads. It's really great to have a convenient place to find definitions and explanations of terms used in the drops. Click on the silver 'Q' below to view Swordmaker's LexiQon of Q drop terms.

QProofs provide evidence that Q Anon is a legitimate source of information, has access to President Trump, and is serving President Trump's agenda:
https://www.qproofs.com/home.html

To find Q Anon threads on Free Republic, search for key word "Qanon" using the search window in the top right corner of the forum.

Finding Q discussions and analyses on the web

I will be compiling the recommendations FReepers have sent me regarding good sources of reliable Q information on the web. Here's a few links to get started.

Praying Medic a good source for concise video reviews of Q drops:
https://www.youtube.com/user/prayingmedic/videos

Praying Medic has two videos for beginners. I haven't watched them yet, so if you do, please FReepmail me to share any insights you have:
Q For Beginners Part 1 - Who is Q? (5 min.)
Q For Beginners Part 2 - How to Find Q posts (10 min.)

Praying Medic also has a Twitter account:
https://twitter.com/prayingmedic

Dustin Nemos is a long-time favorite of mine. He covers other content (e.g., bitcoin) so I recommend you check the titles for topics of interest. He usually includes a few overview statements on the thumbnail to his videos to give you an idea of the Q content being covered. I really appreciate the links he posts beneath his videos. His content is very good, so Youtube banned him for three months. However, he's returned to youtube and you can find his channel, Nemos V, here:
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQ7VgW7XgJQjDEPnOR-Q0Qw

The following is Nemos' video for those new to the effort to awaken the public to the truth and stop the Deep State from destroying our country. He zips through a wealth of visual content (39 min) - the viewer can pause the video to inspect links, articles and photos as needed. I haven't watched it yet so if you do, please FReepmail me to share any insights you have
Unhinged 2.0 - The Untold Story - Trump's Storm and the Great Awakening

ImperatorRex on Twitter has a solid fan base - he's so good he keeps being suspended. Hopefully, he's still posting here:
https://twitter.com/_ImperatorRex_

Some of the history behind The Swamp

Here's the U.S. 2015 Armed Forces video of President Reagan's stirring message about why We Must Fight

If you haven't seen it yet, here's President John F. Kennedy's excellent speech regarding secret societies, as well as his comments about the press:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zdMbmdFOvTs

SkyPilot has been collecting Q Anon information into one interesting, detailed, "story of Q" post which I'll place here:
https://www.freerepublic.com/focus/chat/3633313/posts?page=163#163

Resources for the way forward

Need a meme to help red-pill your friends and neighbors? Little Jeremiah has posted a thread and continues to invite us to post memes we find in one conveneient FR thread. Here's the link:
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/chat/3648238/posts?page=297

For those who want a little uplifting video which outlines the big picture that we are now striving for, here's a video from 2016 in which candidate Donald Trump outlines what he wants for Americans and America and his promises if elected:
This Video Will Get Donald Trump Elected

If you'd like to communicate your support for President Trump's efforts to "red-pill" Americans, you may want to use the following link to send the president an email. Here's the link:

ALREADY IN NOTABLES, Q!
House passes measure demanding DOJ documents
In a 226-183 vote, lawmakers approved the messaging measure, which calls on the DOJ to turn over all of the documents House Republicans have requested related to the FBI's handling of investigations during the 2016 presidential election.

The party-line vote, with one Republican voting present, puts the entire conference on the record in the escalating feud between the DOJ and House Republicans, who have been fighting for months for access to a trove of highly-sensitive documents.

I know next to nothing except that I occasionally find comments of his to articles on Great Awakening. And when I do read those, he tends to be quite insightful and “big picture” oriented.

Hi Baggie! I saw your “hint,” so happily slid right on down into that bunny hole you pointed to.

I found some things, but I’m not sure I found everything you are hoping for. So I will gladly share what I did find.

I started with the Skipper, Christopher Sheldon, about whom is quite a lot known.

“…Christopher Barrows Sheldon was born in Manhattan on Oct. 12, 1926. He attended private schools and graduated from the University of San Marcos in Lima, Peru. He earned a bachelor of divinity degree from Princeton Theological Seminary but was never ordained. He next earned a doctorate in philosophy from the University of Madrid.
He sailed from the age of 15 and was taken on by Irving Johnson, the explorer and captain of the vessel Yankee, as a crew member on around-the-world voyage from 1956 to 1958. After the first mate fell ill, Mr. Sheldon got the job.
Mr. Sheldon took pictures on the trip for National Geographic magazine.
In May 1959, he married Alice N. Strahan, a doctor who had served as medical officer on the Yankee….”

IN THIS ARTICLE ANOTHER SURVIVOR, WILLIAM P. BUNTING IS MENTIONED, PROVIDING AT LEAST A TENUOUS CONNECTION TO THE KENNEDY FAMILY:

“…The screenplay was based on a 1963 book about the incident, ''The Last Voyage of the Albatross,'' written by Chuck Gieg, one of the students. Other survivors included William P. Bunting, son of Mary I. Bunting, the president of Radcliffe College.

After the accident, Mrs. Bunting told Sargent Shriver, the first director of the Peace Corps, about Mr. Sheldon, and he offered him a job. He became director of operations for the Peace Corps in Colombia, a distraction he welcomed.
In addition to Ms. Ramsey, he is survived by a brother, John, of South Bristol, Me….”

Retired Teacher Recalls Real-life 'White Squall'
Names & faces
February 7, 1996|By Harry Wessel of The Sentinel Staff
“…Richard Langford of DeLand, a survivor of the May 1961 disaster that White Squall is based on, doesn't plan to see the movie.

''I lost a lot of good friends on that trip. I don't need any reminders,'' said Langford, 70, a retired Stetson University English professor. ''I had a number of dreams about it after it happened, and I don't want to instigate that again. It was a traumatic experience for a number of people.’'

Two of the five adults on board, as well as four of the 15 students, died. The dead included Alice Sheldon, a physician, biology teacher and wife of the captain, Christopher Sheldon; and the ship's cook, George ''Spook'' Ptacnik, a particularly close friend of Langford’s.

Langford wrote a book-length manuscript on the voyage in 1961 as well as a first-person account of the disaster that appeared in Reader's Digest in October 1961. The manuscript was published in serial form 25 years later in the DeLand Sun News….”

[For those who might wish to obtain his version of the story, here is a link to Amazon for the Oct 1961 Readers Digest:

http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/1996-02-07/news/9602061059_1_white-squall-richard-langford-albatross. ]

THE WESSEL ARTICLE CONTINUES AND STATES THAT THE LANGFORD IS THE MOVIE CHARACTER MCRAE:


“…. He had been reading in bed when the squall hit and was trapped below deck by rushing water.

''Later, some of us estimated that I had been carried down over 40 feet inside the doomed ship before I got out of her,'' he wrote.

Langford had nothing to do with the movie. Although some of the characters' names in the movie stayed the same, Langford's did not. Actor John Savage plays an English teacher named McRae…”

CHUCK GIEG and TOD JOHNSTONE WERE AMONG SURVIVORS

Terror at Sea

DAN JEWEL February 19, 1996 12:00 PM

“…For a brief period after their rescue, the survivors were celebrities. They were met by reporters upon their arrival in Tampa, and their adventure was featured in LIFE magazine. A year later, crew member Chuck Gieg, then 18, wrote a book about the experience, The Last Voyage of the Albatross. By that time the survivors had gone their separate ways. For the most part, they didn’t speak to each other for 35 years—until Disney turned the incident into a movie. White Squall, starring Jeff Bridges, Scott Wolf and Balthazar Getty, opened Feb. 2, and though it takes liberties with their story, it has forced several of the survivors to re-examine the events of that day and their impact….”


“…. The boys were ready pupils. “It was every fantasy I could think of,” says Gieg, who is played in the movie by Wolf. “Like jumping into a pirate movie.” Tod Johnstone, who, like Gieg, lived in Connecticut, and is portrayed by Getty, says that he was having family trouble and thought “this would give me a feeling of self-worth.…”


“…. the disaster continued to haunt them all. “I was really angry at my friends who died and left me,” says Gieg. “So I shut down. My family was supportive, but I wasn’t letting people in.” 

He spent years moving around the country until, “to shake myself up,” he enlisted as a Marine and worked as a combat correspondent in Vietnam. Doing his best to escape too, Sheldon soon signed on for four years as the first director of the Peace Corps in Colombia. “I wanted to get [the sinking] out of my mind,” he says. “But it stays with you.”

Seeing the film made after all these years has helped the survivors, they say. Oddly, what has been especially helpful, says Gieg—who, along with Sheldon, served as a consultant on the film—is its highly fictionalized final scene, in which Bridges, as the skipper, is accused of negligence at a Coast Guard tribunal until his students rally around him. In reality, says Gieg, the hearing was strictly routine….”


“…. Today, Gieg, who has never married, has learned to be content with his solitary life as a business consultant on the Massachusetts island of Nantucket. Living near the sea, he says, “I love waking up in the morning. I can’t wait to get up and get started.” Sheldon, too, has found some peace. Being involved with White Squall, he says, “has been therapeutic. It gets me out and talking about it.”

To Johnstone, however, now an artist in Stonington, Conn., the skipper’s immediate desire to put the episode behind him left him wounded. “The real tragedy,” he says, “is that none of us have talked to each other since ’61. Skipper was like my surrogate father. I felt hurt for years that he never followed up to find out where we were.”

But even that resentment is fading. Nine years ago, Johnstone took his wife on a cruise that crossed the site of the squall. As the cruise ship passed over the approximate spot where his crew-mates had died, Johnstone tossed a wreath off the deck…”

More on artist Johnstone’s story

http://articles.courant.com/1996-02-02/news/9602020045_1_white-squall-alice-sheldon-albatross


“…. The truth is that a 17-year-old Stonington youth named Tod Johnstone was at the helm when the violent storm, called a ``white squall,'' hit that day.



The truth is that Johnstone has had to live the past 34 years with the nagging question of responsibility.
The movie ``White Squall,'' which opens today, is not always faithful to the truth, but there is enough truth in it to have helped Johnstone come to terms with his demons.
Johnstone, 52, an artist who runs the Anguilla Gallery in Stonington, worked as a technical adviser on the film and had a bit part playing his own father. Last week, he saw the movie for the first time.
``I know I was not 100 percent responsible for what happened,'' he said. ``But I have felt guilty because I was the one steering the boat. It's like if you are driving a car and you get into an accident and people are killed.
``A lot of time has been spent analyzing what happened that day, and there was nothing I could have done to prevent it,'' he said. ``The only thing that could have prevented it was being 2 or 3 miles away.''
The brigantine Albatross set sail from Mystic in June 1960 with a crew of five adults and 13 teenagers. The youths were mostly troubled or misdirected, and the ship was intended to be a floating tough-love classroom….”

“…. The sad irony is that none of the survivors talks to anyone,'' Johnstone said. ``In the movie, there is all this stuff about closeness and bonding. Yet, in reality, this group elected not to talk to each other. In 34 years, the crew had not said boo to each other.'' Sheldon said he hopes the movie will bring about a reunion of the entire surviving crew.
Both Sheldon and Johnstone said the movie has proved cathartic.
``I've always sort of held in talking about it,'' Sheldon said. ``You always wonder what you could have done to prevent it -- could you have prepared the ship differently? But I've come to learn that kind of thinking is rather useless. The movie now has me talking about what happened freely. It has become my personal psychoanalyst.''
``The story is now told; it's out there,'' Johnstone said. ``Psychologically, I've carried all this luggage for a long time, and that's not a good idea. Now I have the monkey off my back.’'

Interesting! Thank you for confirming the number of students aboard. I still find it strange that no complete list of students’ names seems to be available. I’ve searched too.

Great work on your part!
