    Q drop #595: Jan 23 2018 14:45:58 Q !UW.yye1fxo ID: 384dbe 139637 Letter to @Jack? Who did @Jack lose today? Goodbye @Jack. Predictable. ALL. Q ransomnotes: Jack Dorsey has been in the news in the days leading up to this Q drop. I read about his when Project Veritas (James O'Keefe) started taunting Jack about an expose they had filmed using undercover operatives. Veritas videos re Dorsey record his employees describing exactly how conservative voices and engagement were methodically suppressed, how personal information (e.g., intimate photographs) is harvested (even private "Direct Messages") and reviewed by massive teams at Twitter made...

Ask yourself an honest question, why would a billionaire who has it all, fame, fortune, a warm and loving family, friends, etc. want to endanger himself and his family by becoming POTUS? Why would he want to target himself and those he cares about? Does he need money? Does he need fame? What does he get out of this? Does he want to make the US/world a better place for his family and for those good and decent people who have long been taken advantage of?...

    UTSUNOMIYA, Japan — In the sofa-appointed listening room of a factory north of Tokyo, hi-fi fans can listen to vintage vinyl records on a sound system costing $45,000, including a sleek silver turntable. Musical choices include rock — the Eagles’ “Hotel California,” sounding warm and vivid through four-foot-tall speakers — jazz and classical. Not on the menu: hip-hop. Or disco. Or the thumping, floor-convulsing sounds of modern techno or house music, which helped make the record player at the center of this audiophile’s paradise famous. The turntable, the Technics SL-1200, may not enjoy the name recognition of, say, Fender electric...

A kind FReeper sent me the link and when I asked for clarification, they replied with the following intriguing email "My understanding is that it was released globally by William Binney, who is the man Trump has put in charge of cleaning up the NSA. Apparently, the four page memo in Congress is a summary of this document. Memogate is definitely big, but that, right now, is referring to the 4 page document authored by Nunes." I appreciate leads like this. So we're putting this document forward for those FReepers who may wish...

    Attorneys for two Twin Peaks shootout bikers are seeking sanctions against McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reyna, claiming a last-minute motion offered Monday to remove Judge Ralph Strother from the case was improperly "filed for nakedly political purposes." Fort Worth attorneys Brian Bouffard, who represents Cossack Jorge Daniel Salinas, and David Conrad Beyer, who represents Cossack Billy McCree, charge in motions filed Tuesday that the state's motion to recuse Strother was "baseless, made in bad faith and caused significant hardships" to those who traveled from out of town for the hearing. "The state’s recusal motion was filed only seconds after...

    YPG elements who leave anti-Daesh operations and mobilize in Afrin, Syria, will lose backing from the U.S., the Pentagon told Anadolu Agency on Tuesday. "If they [U.S.-backed forces under the SDF] carry out military operations of any kind that are not specifically focused on ISIS they will not have coalition support," according to Pentagon spokesperson Adrian Rankine-Galloway in reference to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, another name for Daesh.

    Widespread corruption and never ending scandals in Brazil seem to be turning that lush and large country into another Venezuela which has resulted in turmoil,pain and political chaos. Unquestionably Brazil’s current woes can be traced back to Lula and his regime of hate and socialism. He has paved the way for the corruption to a level to unseen in modern history anywhere on the planet. I was surprised, dismayed, and in total shock when I found out that the leaders of the Democratic Party have sided with Lula to save him from prison, siding with a person who is no...

    Patients at Coalinga State Hospital remained on lockdown Tuesday as a few details began to emerge about violent protests that have erupted since new rules restricting the use of personal electronic devices were put into place. Since it started this lockdown, the California Department of State Hospitals has released little information on what caused the lockdown, how that cause is being addressed or how long it will be in place and did not respond to The Bee’s questions by deadline Tuesday. On Tuesday, the Associated Press reported that Department of State Hospital officials cited lawsuit testimony claiming that a “porn...

    Five months after opposing a motion to recuse 19th State District Judge Ralph Strother in the case of a Twin Peaks defendant, prosecutors from McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reyna’s office filed a last-minute motion Monday morning to remove Strother from hearing two bikers’ cases. The surprising move came seconds after Strother denied a motion from prosecutors to postpone a hearing set for Monday morning in which attorneys for Cossacks Jorge Salinas and Billy McCree were trying to disqualify Reyna from prosecuting their cases and had four witnesses with damaging testimony about Reyna waiting to testify. After Strother said the...

    Stones from the eruption of Mount Kusatsu-Shirane hit a gondola lift and injured at least four people on board with shattered glass, according to local rescuers. The 9:59 a.m. eruption of the 2,171-meter mountain is the first since 1983, according to the Meteorological Agency. The stones also crashed through the roof of a rest house where about 100 people had evacuated, the rescuers said. Video footage from the top of the resort’s gondola showed skiers gliding down the slopes as black rocks plummeted from the skies and snow billowed up as they struck the ground, sometimes just missing skiers. A...
