What’s Q Have to Do with It?

Originally, it was believed that Trump was Q because he makes references to it in his speeches. 

Trump is known as Q+

Q-Anon are the people who follow Q’s drops which were usually no more than a few sentences about things we should look for to be able to read the tea leaves going forward.  I, personally, never followed Q all that closely because the Q drops didn’t make sense to me.

They started in October 2017 and they talked about things that weren’t happening.  This captured the attention of Q-Anon, a group of people determined to figure out what Q was talking about.  They must love puzzles because they were finally able to connect some of the dots.

It was Q-Anon who helped me understand that if you take the information on a Q drop in 2018, for example, the date, the time and sometimes even the drop number, will line up with what is happing today.  

In other words, these things were planned.  No wonder Trump kept saying it was like watching a “movie.”  They must have spent years war gaming out every eventuality and sending clues to look for 3 or 4 years down the road.

And then in December 2020, the Q drops abruptly stopped.  Could have been because of COVID. 18 months passed before the drops began again in June 2022, but they were short lived. 

The first one said:  “Are you ready to serve your country again?  Remember your oath”. 

The second one said: Shall we play a game once more?” 

And when someone expressed their frustration with all the nonexistent drops in between, Q said, “It has to be this way.” and finally, “Shall we play the game once more?”   

No one is sure if these final drops were from anybody that counts.  Someone could have hacked into Q.

When Trump says “Trust the plan,” he is talking about a project plan.  This is how they know the outcome.  This is why Trump can say, “The outcome is certain.” 

In project management one of the first things you do is develop a Risk and Issues list.  The best way to describe it in layman terms is this: a risk is something you smell; an issue is something you step in.  Think dog and taking a walk.  What are you likely to smell before you step in it?  So a risk is something that hasn’t happened yet but you have a good inkling that it could, and an issue is something that has happened in spite of all your your best efforts.

A good project plan has every conceivable risk built into the plan and how you’re going to address it if it happens.  Often risks can become issues.  Some issues, however, can’t be foreseen so you build flexibility into your plan to address them as they happen.  

The “5D Chess” part is:  If this happens, we’re going to do this, and if we do this, they’ll do that and so on.  

In the beginning, a risk for Trump was undoubtedly election fraud, which turned out happening.  To mitigate the risk, they decided, up front, to watermark the ballots to ensure there were no duplicates.  They might have pulled county records in key states and looked for every deceased person to find which ones might be on mail-in ballots.  They may have put servers off site to record the results or discovered where the servers were and how to get to them after the fact.  They might have decided to put cameras around all the ballot boxes and noted every NGO that offered money to those willing to help the “good” candidate win by going into nursing homes and collecting ballots.  They may have operated their own NGOs and monitored everyone who walked through the door to determine who might be open to crossing the line so they could put them under surveillance.  

They probably even talked with judges to see what sort of evidence they would need to determine there was  election fraud if it occurred.  At some point, they may have even planned for SCOTUS to meet in secret, using the excuse of COVID or something, to reach a decision to be announced at a later date.

Which is what I’m hearing BTW; that SCOTUS has already determined there was election fraud but hasn’t announced it yet.

All this had to be done by the book.  Cutting corners would sink the entire project.  However, because they told us, “they got it all” whatever they had planned, worked.

One of the objectives of the plan was undoubtedly to wake people up and it had to be dramatic.  They had to play all this out in front of the public so we would see the corruption for ourselves. 

Probably the biggest risk to the overall plan was not knowing the extent of the willingness of the American people to move the plan forward which was criticalEverything that follows in the plan was dependent upon the American people.

In project management this is called a critical path. 

How motivated would the people be to show up and be counted?  How effective would they be to ferret out the truth and share it?  They probably knew there was a good chance that platforms like FB and Twitter would shut people down.  This may have been the reason why Q was created; to keep people talking and give them “bread crumbs” to follow.

Undoubtedly this is why Rumble, BitChute, and later Telegram and Truth Social were created, as well. 

But they couldn’t know how invested people would be to get the truth out in spite of the obstacles.  How well could the people coordinate their efforts?  Would they even find the truth when the MSM was spewing out lies?     

And there would be more questions.

Would the people have the discernment to know what was garbage and what was true?  The other side could put out false information; would the American people fall for it and become distracted?  

Because they couldn’t always present the truth or the other side would know what was coming, they’d wonder if the people could handle the ambiguity or get frustrated with the whole thing? 

This is probably where they felt the most vulnerable.  They knew a certain percentage of the people were not going to wake up and a certain percentage of people were going to continue to be invested in Biden.  But they really could have no idea how many people would carry the plan forward.  This was the one thing they couldn’t predict.  How many would stand up and would it be enough to tip the scales.

I think they were pleasantly surprised.  I loved it when General Flynn, the guy we stood next to as we were waiting to take the stage at “Stop the Steal,” later said, in an excited voice:

“We have an army of Digital Soldiers . . . what I call them.

Cause this was an insurgency, folks.  This was run like an insurgency.  This was irregular warfare at its finest, [but] in politics. . .

And we have what we call Citizen Journalists, because the journalists that we have in the [mainstream] media did a disservice to themselves.  Actually more [than] that.  They did [it] to this country [and] they did a disservice to themselves because they displayed an arrogance that is unprecedented.

And so the American people decided to take over the idea of information.  They took over the idea of information, and they did it through social media.

“If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on earth.” — U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn

I’d like the idea of being a digital soldier!  It’s certainly better than being called a domestic terrorist!

Citizen journalists are out there with their cameras reporting what they see in real time that doesn’t line up with what the MSM is reporting.  Like events that were said to be in the rose garden on TV.   No they weren’t.  Some guy in a hotel room was leaning on a ledge of his room across from the rose garden and filming it.  There was no one there.   At least not in the rose garden in Washington DC.

A woman in D.C. who calls herself Nancy Drew, if memory serves (and that’s a BIG if), was documenting when the lights went on and off in the White House.  The lights were on a timer.  They all went off at the same time every night.  There was no one in the White House.  That’s how we knew Biden wasn’t there.    

As a long-time project manager, I can tell you, if you plan for every eventuality, the outcome becomes more and more certain as you get closer to the finish line.  We are now close to the end.  What Trump calls “The Storm.” 

A lot of what we’re seeing and hearing now are false flags.  There may be a couple of weeks (2 or 3) where we’re kind of in the dark about what’s going on.  It’s good to have your prescriptions filled.  Plan to check in with your neighbors so you can help each other out.  Have food and water on hand just in case.  But based on what Trump has said in the past, the storm will pass and we’re going to be OK.      

Someone said to me today, “If Trump doesn’t win (come out on top), we don’t win.”  That’s a sobering thought because we’re playing for all the marbles.  This is a true revolution.

However, if what I think is going on behind the scenes is real, it’s also the biggest sting of all time!  One day we’ll look back on this experience and be glad we were a part of it.

Oh, and keep praying.  Always be praying.       



About GShep


  1. Spoiler alert: God wins. Meanwhile, pray without ceasing.

  2. I am not too sure what Q has to do with it; but I certainly am open to all speculation. For myself, I feel there will not be an election. At least, I feel that way right now. Too much is happening and very fast. How can there be an election?

    The nation has not come to terms with the 2020 fraud. Both the Senate and House are infiltrated with unsavory politicians. I have lost faith in the election process. Besides, a war might break out.

  3. I recall shortly after election day 2020, when some ex-military people got on the internet and claimed that all the ballots were watermarked and coded so they could tell what was real and what was Memorex. And there were others with similar assertions. And then . . . nothing. Not only that, but no court would let any of the cases get passed a dismissal for lack of standing.

    Even if all these efforts were and are being taken, it will be for naught if there are not a series of legitimate elections in which the Democrats are thrown out. No one’s going to come on TV like Mike Lindell and say, “Ah, we have all the ballot markings recorded! We can tell exactly which votes are legitimate and which are fraudulent!” If the thing is going to be resolved, it will have to be by unrigged elections.

    That much is certain.

    • If no court will look at the evidence
      the crime will never be proved,
      but that does not mean there was no crime.

    • Gail Sheppard says

      I don’t think they’d be able to tell which votes were legitimate just by the watermarks. The watermarks were to ensure there were no duplicate or fake ballots.

      I’m also not sure we can rely on what passes for news these days to tell us what the court’s position is without the benefit of their decisions. Nor do we necessarily know when they’re even looking at cases. That Roe Vs. Wade thing seemed to come from way out of left field. That some of the states followed suit so quickly was also a surprise, to me anyway. Something had been in the works, but we didn’t know about it until the end.

      One of the stated objectives of Trump was to let the people see what was going on and if Trump had pushed the election fraud earlier that might not have happened. He may have purposely slowed things down until more people could “wake up,” as they say, to the corruption.

      Plus, I suspect he feared that if he were reinstated immediately people would think it there was a coup and not because he legitimately won.

      It’s interesting to me how carefully people word things. Like Bill Barr. He said he saw no evidence of fraud. Maybe it was because he wasn’t presented with any.

  4. General Flynn?

    Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn who was a lifelong Democrat and military intelligence under Obama? Who “knows where the bodies are buried” (possibly because he had a hand in burying them?)? Who retired after *33* years? Gen. Flynn who tried to pass off this occultic prayer as a Catholic prayer to St. Michael the Archangel?:


    Hmmm….Gail, dear sister, I think we’ve been had.

    • Gail Sheppard says

      Yes, I guess that General Flynn. I had no idea he was a long time democrat like George and I were. Shows how things change. Not sure being in Intelligence under Obama makes him a murderer, but I guess it’s possible. Don’t really care how the man prays.

      I just really liked what he said about digital warriors and citizen journalists and how pleasantly surprised he was that some of us still give a damn.

      • He who “knows where the bodies are buried”
        might be just a grave-digger, not the murderer…

        • Gail Sheppard says

          True. But to say someone may have had a “hand” in something suggests to me that we may be talking about someone who was involved or influential in the planning, creation, or execution that resulted in the need for burial.

      • George Michalopulos says

        Anon, no man is perfect but to suggest that Lt Gen Flynn is anything but a patriot is beyond me. Sure, he’s a Democrat and yes, he did serve under Obama.

        But guess what? there millions of Democrats his age who are culturally conservative and patriotic. And Obama fired him because Flynn gave him intel about the Islamic movement that he didn’t like.

        Then there’s the thing his son exposed about a certain eating establishment in DC…

      • Don’t really care how the man prays.

        Lex orandi, ex credendi.

        I’d be highly suspicious of someone who claimed to be Christian and used prayers by, say, Blavatsky. This is no different.

    • Actually, if you listen to the substance of the prayer and ignore the comparison, it’s not bad by Catholic standards. Don’t think that disqualifies him. Now, allusions to Crowley or whomever, yeah, that would do it.

      • Misha: The comparison makes it look like he’s quoting the false prophet, so I’d say that’s pretty relevant. First I’d heard of it. At the least it’s very unwise, even with the best of intentions.

  5. Q-Anon is a CIA syop meant to split the conservative vote by giving support to fringe Republican players. It uses occult techniques of having secret knowledge and providing their followers with “power” of knowing the future. This is the same playbook the CIA used in Ukraine with Azov and others. Q-Anon only shows up when there is a possibility of conservative power. It is designed as a distraction and a splittering force for conservative voters. Ignore it and it will go away. Discuss it, engage with it, and it will grow like any other agent of chaos.

    • Gail Sheppard says

      That hasn’t been my experience. I know some women who are/were part of Q-Anon. They aren’t fringe Republicans. Many are middle aged women who usually are overlooked when it comes to politics. This was an opportunity for them to have a role in “reading the tea leaves,” so to speak. Not in an occult sort of way. But in an effort to make sense out of something. –

      Women are generally very good at this. As mothers of children going this way and that, we can find “Waldo” in a crowd. They aren’t the gypsies, the Sara Winchesters, or the Mary Todds of yesteryear. They are the grandmothers who lived long enough to read between the lines and connect the dots.

      I’ve noticed that everything that is out of the ordinary is automatically assumed to be some kind of CIA syop, especially if it picks up steam and has legs. The only problem with this is that none of this Q stuff benefits the the CIA.

      However, it was and is, massively important to the Trump team to get the people behind them and this was one way to get a certain segment of the demographic engaged. It certainly didn’t have a splintering effect in the last election which, unfortunately, was stolen.

      • Gail,
        The purpose of a psyop is to encourage normal people to support extreme politicians who will not fight for their interests. In the US, our elites love political theater that these “fringe” politicians bring , as it gives people “free speech” to express their anguish while doing nothing to solve the real problem in our country, corporate socialism and empire. Politicians say what people want to hear, but then vote the opposite. Neither party supports families, as they never support policies that would allow a family to survive on a single income while meeting the American “dream.” Getting rid of Roe v Wade was a good thing, but will create conflict between the common people who want the same things: peace, stability, and respect. The elites are always happy to see us fight each other.

        Regarding Trump, his foreign policy (with the exception of meeting Kim Jun Un) is the same as Biden’s. Under his watch, Ukraine received weapons, training, and biochemical experiments. Venezuela was sanctioned and leader nearly assassinated. Haitian leader was assassinated. Both of these conflicts are driving the immigration crisis. Trump went after China and Iran to maintain US dominance in Asia. He continued to support Israel’s invasion of Syria (Golum Heights) and stealing Syria’s oil. And he made NATO members buy more US weapons. Trump had good rhetoric but had the same actions.

        The American project, since it’s founding, is about globalization and universalism. Get rid of the particulars or flatten their meaning to mean nothing more than personal tastes has been the American motto. There is a good book from Uncut Mountain Press on the Antichrist and Globalization that I highly recommend.

    • There are SO many things right now that are there to split the Republican party. Lord have mercy.

    • Ben David, thank you for saying that about a CIA psyop. I don’t know the truth but that’s a possibility I’ve considered – and if true gets people all worked up and wasting a lot of energy on nothing. And worked up people are much easier to control and distract.

      It also reminds me a bit of Gnosticism, a kind of “secret knowledge” only special people have. And a kind of subtle arrogance that goes with it about being the ones “in the know” who will help lead all the rest of us hapless Americans to the truth, since we’re such babes compared to them and going to be so bewildered and unable to handle it when the truth comes out. I have friends who were just unbearable in that attitude. If it were a spiritual matter, it would be considered prelest.

      At any rate, people will believe what they want. For myself, I read widely, believe nothing, wait to see what actually happens – and follow only one person, Jesus Christ. Not anonymous posters on the internet, no matter how intriguing they may be.

  6. Games within games within games. A couple of weeks ago Trump was bragging that he had warned Germany they were too dependent on Russian energy. Now the lines are sabotaged in an operation widely recognized as work of USA.

    • I tend to land with Ben David and Isadora.

      Having listened to testimonies of ex-occultists, ex-Freemasons, and professed victims of SRA and MKUltra, I seriously question whether anyone can rise to the top in gov’t and intelligence under satanic globalists without being a member of “the Club.” Mike Flynn claims to be a staunch Catholic (so does Pope Francis), yet prays an occult prayer at an NAR mega church and hangs with the Charisma false prophets crowd? (Such as Clay Clark one of whose books on success allegedly follows all the 33 principles taught in Freemasonry: maybe this one?: https://sites.google.com/site/lpomdaertyd564710/pdf-download-full-the-art-of-getting-things-done-pdf-read-online—by-clay-clark. Then there’s his Illuminati pose on the cover of Boom: https://search.brave.com/images?q=images+of+clay+clark&img=232 ) Flynn claims to be a patriot. George W. claimed to be a born-again Christian. In the latter case nothing could have been be farther from the truth. Words are cheap. “The Great Awakening” is a dangerous Dominionist heresy.

      I see evidence of layer upon layer upon layer of deception going on here. If a significant number of people falling for this are middle-age conservative women, who are politically naive, that is no selling point for me! I fit close to that demographic. I started to get sucked in, but too much did not add up, but reeks of occult deception to me. I know how pitifully ignorant I have been and still am. As a former charismatic Pentecostal, I call foul. This stuff is from the pit of hell.

      • Gail Sheppard says


        • Gail,
          You OK?

          • Gail Sheppard says

            Honestly, Dino, I am not.

            AT&T came out here, unbeknownst to me, to put in a fiber optics hub for the neighborhood. They decided to use my yard.
            They dug deep trenches, front and back, which they left open for week. They buried cables beginning on one side of the house and went around the house to the other side of the house. In the process, they removed all the top soil, shredded our french drain, poked holes in our irrigation system, left cracks in our driveway to the point it’s crumbling, punctured holes in our water line and we’ve had no water for days. Apparently it take 72 hours with our water line company to even located a contractor and then then another 72 hours to get a second opinion.

            So, no, I’m not alright. But I do appreciate you asking. Thank you.

            • Gailina,
              I am very sorry. Very hard to live in a home without water. It might be a Good time, for a quick trip out of town. Perhaps Florence Arizona?

              • Gail Sheppard says

                It’s tempting but we have a monastery here in Piedmont which always open their doors to us.

              • Dino,

                Have I mentioned how good it is to “have you back,” as it were? If not. I am saying so now.

                • George Michalopulos says


                  • Thanks Brian and George,
                    A lot has changed in two odd years. Especially me. I am sure we all have. Bottom line I believe our hearts are in the right place.(of course Gail as well) Just much more darkness to contend with. Prayers are very important right now. God Bless! Good luck, God’s speed.

                    • Indeed, Dino, prayer is “the one thing needful.” It (or rather He) is the only thing that keeps me from my besetting inclination to despair.

                      The word of our Lord to St. Silouan gives me great comfort:

                      “Keep thy mind in hell and despair not.”

            • Sorry to hear of your troubles! If you didn’t live six states away, I’d say that my home is your home and you and George could camp out and use our water till everything gets resolved. Best to you in this situation and my prayers are arising.

            • Gail, I am sorry for what has happened to you and hope that you are okay.

              • Gail Sheppard says

                Thank you, my friend. I appreciate that! It’s just life. I’m OK. Stressful, though.

            • That’s terrible, Gail! My husband and I are going through something like that. We moved into a newly built home a couple years ago, turns out they didn’t do the window wells right, they fell apart, but under warranty so they came out the other day and redid them.

              Except we’d laid the patio around the wells, and they had to tear out parts of the patio to do the replacement. And they don’t pay for patio replacement. So now we have to pay to have the patio redone. Grrrr….. Anyway, feel for you. God bless.

      • Solidarity Priest says

        Glad you got out of the Pentecostals. A lady who used to chant for me got involved with them as a teen. I can’t prove it, but I am pretty sure her mental problems were due to that. To tbe best of my knowledge, she did die as an Orthodox.
        I think I mentioned this here before; a subdeacon in this diocese underwent surgery. He was literally in the other world for about fourteen hours. He says that he saw that all politicians were being cast into Hades and their followers were being dragged down with them! After hearing of this, I have become more of a confirmed monarchist than before

    • Gail Sheppard says

      One could argue that Trump is at war with the USA for precisely the same things. . I don’t recall anyone crediting Trump with trotting around the globe and causing problems for everyone. Trump is pretty much a stay-at-home guy and he was right to tell Germany not to get into a position where they would be dependent on a country who doesn’t like them very much.

      When Trump was president, he only cared about our country and said so over and over again. He wouldn’t be giving 12 billion dollars to Ukraine, when Florida was facing a category 5 hurricane. Nor would we be asking for handouts.

      Did you see the way Biden (or whoever he is) shook at that podium during his last speech? He hates this country and most of the people who are in it. He looked possessed illuminated weird red light with those two fake marines standing in back of him.

      How much clearer does this picture have to get? The whole world is in the throws of insane people and they’re headquartered right here. The United States is ground zero.

      We didn’t ask for it. We didn’t want it. And now that it’s all hands on deck, there are some people who are focusing on things that just don’t matter all that much at the moment.

      “I don’t like the military cause their bad.” “I don’t like Flynn because he doesn’t pray right and now he’s a Catholics but not a real one and hangs out with weird people.” [This is coming from someone who used to speak in tongues, handle sakes and perform exorcisms.]

      She doesn’t like Clay somebody because she says he’s an illuminati. We definitely don’t share the same reading material but why all this weird stuff? We’ve got enough dark stuff going on right now.

      She’s not the only one: Trump’s bad because he’s too assertive and tweets all the time. Gail Sheppard is bad because she’s even more assertive and never tweets! LOL. (Actually, that last thing was from a stalker on twitter who is literally obsessed with all things Monomakhos. He’s even used our name to open up shop for himself. He sounded very disappointed when we came back up. He kind of had a cool set-up, too. It had a vibe to it. I like the way he did it but he only wanted to talk trash about us. Why would someone, anyone, want to spend time talking about us when they could spend the time talking to us? We’d be happy to arrange it so they could come on our blog and talk face to face.

      So many people say they like this blog and I would too if I were guest! We should rotate responsibilities. The stuff I have to weed through is so disturbing sometimes it keep me up at night. Probably because the people who are writing it are disturbed.

      Because of this administration (and their handlers), the USA is enemy #1 around the world and for good reason.

      Even I hate us! This is intolerable. I feel like I live in tune town.

      • Gail, so sorry to hear about this stalker guy, and the other disturbed people that you deal with behind the scenes. I speak for many of us, we love the work that you and George do! Though, all of us may not agree with 100% of what you may think or say, it’s just good to have a traditionally conservative Orthodox blog out there. (My unworthy prayers go out to you and George.)

      • he was right to tell Germany not to get into a position where they would be dependent on a country who doesn’t like them very much.

        Wise, but was he referring to Russia or the USA?

        • Gail Sheppard says


        • Gail Sheppard says

          He was referring to dependency on foreign suppliers which for Germany is Russia, and with whom they were on a collision course over Ukraine.

          In a speech to the UN 2018, Trump said, “Reliance on a single foreign supplier can leave a nation vulnerable to extortion and intimidation. That is why we congratulate European states, such as Poland, for leading the construction of a Baltic pipeline so that nations are not dependent on Russia to meet their energy needs. Germany will become totally dependent on Russian energy if it does not immediately change course.” Which, of course, is what happened.

          He also said. “Here in the Western Hemisphere, we are committed to maintaining our independence from the encroachment of expansionist foreign powers”.

          The expansionist foreign powers he was talking about I would imagine include NATO, due to its expansion into eastern Europe, selling military equipment to countries like Ukraine, establishing intelligence ties abroad, creating foreign bases, setting up biolabs, etc., the UN, the World Economic Forum, the WHO, China, the Paris Climate Accords, and the central banks like the Federal Reserve.

          Trump, backed away from all of it. – Biden, of course, would like America to be reabsorbed so we would be just as dependent on these outside agencies, who frankly hate America, as Germany is on Russia.

          • I knew what he meant; my question was rhetorical. The USA does not like Germany, hence why they destroyed their gas supply. Russia was always a better friend to the Germans than the USA or other Wester European powers.

            • Gail Sheppard says

              I don’t think Russia “likes” Germany either because they are strong supporters of Ukraine. If the US destroyed that pipeline it would make them an enemy of Europe which, as far as I know, they’re not. They are all cut from the same cloth.

              • The USA has no love for Europe, according to Gonzalo Lira. I think he might be correct: http://thesaker.is/2022-09-27-the-americans-declared-war-on-europe-gonzalo-lira/

                • George Michalopulos says

                  Basil, regrettably you’re correct. As someone who is proud of my European heritage (and my American nationality), I am absolutely horrified by what the American Establishment is doing to Europe. It also bothers me that the European elites are completely on board with the destruction of their nations.

                  • This conversation reminds me of a telephone call from my son many years ago when he took a job in Georgia, having spent most of his life in Delaware. “We hate Yankees, you know.,” he was informed on his first day at work.

                    PS Delawareans don’t think of themselves as Yankees as far as I know.

                    • George Michalopulos says

                      I’ll never forget the first time I was called a Yankee. I was going to school in Houston and supporting myself working as a waiter. The line chef for some reason and he called me a Yankee. I sputtered with rage and informed him that I was from Oklahoma.

                      He said, “anything north of Conroe is a Yankee.” (Conroe being a norther suburb of Houston.)

                      I had to laugh.

                • I don’t think the American elite hate Europe. What I do think is that they see Europe as having made its own bed by orchestrating NS1 and 2. As a consequence, the American Establishment sees itself as having to be very heavy handed in retaining its European colonies.

                  What the US’s sabotage of NS actually means is that even if there is regime change in Europe, there is no clear path to resuming the import of Russian energy. It may not save the European political class, but it may prevent America from losing its European colonies to Russia. That was a distinct possibility if the NS pipelines had been restarted since it would signal Europe’s complete economic dependence on the RF.

                  • George Michalopulos says

                    Misha, perhaps what I should have said is that the American elite (and the European elite) disdain or have no sympathy for their populations. Not active hate mind you but extreme unconcern for the plight of the ordinary people.

                    As somebody once said, “the opposite of love is not hate but apathy.”

                    • George,

                      Oh, you were accurate. It is destruction. No need to rephrase. I was only calling attention to something that I think has been missed by some commentators that the US elites are fond of the European elites, except when they pursue their own interests. In that case, the US is cordially ruthless. As Kissinger said, “It is dangerous to be America’s enemy, but it is fatal to be its friend.”

                      This is the story of empire. And Putin described this one best, as the Empire of Lies.

                      I understand what the DS was trying to achieve. However, I suspect they miscalculated. They may be instilling an anti-American hatred in places where it has been uncommon up to now. What is broken (or blasted) can be replaced or repaired. Animosity tends to last.

                  • It may have signalled Europe’s complete
                    economic independence from the USA;
                    and Germany’s industrial power to Russia’s West
                    may have it helped balance China to it’s East
                    so that one hegemon is not replaced by another.
                    But the Neocons/Neoliberals are too stupid to see this.

    Another terrific speech from Putin that clearly inspires and calls things as they seem:

    “The dictatorship of the Western elite is directed against all societies, including against the peoples of those Western countries themselves. It’s a challenge for all. This means the total negation of the human, the overthrow of religion and traditional values as the crushing of freedom becomes to look like the opposite of religion – open Satanism,” he said, repeating a familiar theme of his, and while rejecting “LGBT”/gender ideology as a threat to Russian society which the West seeks to impose…

    “Do we really want to have a parent No. 1, No. 2, No. 3 instead of mom and dad in Russia? Do we want children to be told that there are other genders besides men and women? Is this the future we want for our children? For us, this is unacceptable,” the Russian president said.

  8. Gail,

    I agree the occultism is unsettling. I actually came across the testimonies I mention because I have loved ones in the New Age, and I was looking for testimonies of ex-New Agers to see if there was something I could share with them. I fell down a rabbit hole.

    I’m sorry you find it necessary to mock a fellow Orthodox who was (decades ago for a season in young adulthood) a former Pentecostal, since there are many of us here in the Church—most of whom like me never handled snakes (“sakes”) or performed exorcisms. At least I do not make up things to slander people I have never met.

    Please don’t shoot the messenger. I’m sorry I just can’t go with you on these last two posts. Otherwise I appreciate a lot of what you and George have done here. If this sort of thing keeps up, though, I’m out.

    • Gail Sheppard says

      This isn’t about whether or not you agree with my last two posts. If you’ve spent any time reading this blog, you’d know a LOT of people do not agree with me. But they don’t have the “tood” you do.

      You can’t go on and on about what someone did or said in the past and suggest it proves there is something wrong with them in the present when your past is a little weird, too.

      Kettle, meet Pot.” You walked right into that.

      I didn’t “mock you.” I don’t even know you.

      I do know that people who disparage people like George and me, who were lifelong democrats at one time, or even George who used to be a Freemason, or me who used to do TM back in the day when the Beatles first introduce us teenyboppers to it the 70s, do not appreciate someone with an equally curious nature in her past (you sound like a woman to me) to call into question the character of other people who share our backgrounds.

      You’re not a “messenger,” whoever you are. You’re someone with a very strong interest in bringing people up short. They don’t call the Church a hospital for nothing.

      We don’t spar with each other here. It makes for uncomfortable reading.

      This is not the first time you’ve taken on this tone where you make it personal, either. It is, however, your last. – Wish you well. Go in peace.

  9. George and Gail,
    Please bear with me and my illustration below to make sure I understand the overarching goal of Q-Anon:

    The neighborhood (allied and friendly nations) has been dealing with robberies. The robbers (globalists) have been bragging about their criminal successes at their local hangout (Davos WEF) These “achievements” have been overheard by people (various media) and reported to the neighborhood.

    The neighborhood is not sure whether they should report these alleged unlawful activities it to the police (The Hague ICC) because it is hearsay.

    One day these same group of robbers decide to loot and pillage your home (U.S.A.). You happen to be at home that day and stay out of site and allow the robbers to proceed with their criminal activity and completely ransack your home. You then tell your family (U.S. citizens) and the neighborhood that you can now confirm the identity of the robbers and made a list of all of the goods taken.

    Now that you have this information you can gather it and will shortly present everything to the police so justice will be done.

    Is this what you are proposing Trump is in the process of doing?

    If so, wouldn’t have made more sense to stop the robbers before they inflicted the damage upon you and your family?

    • Gail Sheppard says


      I don’t know what Trump is doing beyond what I’ve already said which was based on comments he made which have seemingly come to pass.

      That Q, whoever s/he is, seems to know what’s going to happen years before it happens which suggest to me there is a plan with dates and times in the works. Q certainly isn’t a prophet or anything so what else could it be?

      I’m not an expert when it comes to Q-Anon. My intent was to educate people on the little that I know because I get asked. People think Q and Q-Anon are the same. That’s why I entitled the piece: “What’s Q got to do with it?” (Kind of based on that Tina Turner song, “What’s love got to do with it?”) Q and Q-Anon are separate entities.

      I don’t see that Q-Anon has an overreaching goal. I think like the rest of us they want to know what’s going on.

      Trump is not in a position to stop anyone. Officially, he is just a citizen like the rest of us. If we find he has a bigger role at some point, that’s a different story.

      It’s not always clear who the “robbers” are, as there are so many bad actors.

      Look at the case of the pipeline. It could have been several groups who sabotaged it. The UN people want to kill 90% of the population. I can see them doing it to usher in WWIII. The same is true for the Economic Forum. The US could have done it. NATO could have done it. China could have done it. Even Hillary could have done it. It’s unlikely Russia did it because it’s their line!

      What does seem to be happening is that some agency, i.e. MI and the NSA, do know what’s happening behind the scenes. (They’re not “rescuing” us; but IMO they’re doing their job.) The NSA has a LOT to work with because it records every single phone call, including cell phones, and calls made outside the USA.

      Based on the recordings of the NSA, the military can hold off-shore tribunals that last days in comparison to the months or years it takes going through the courts. If they catch someone talking about trafficking or hurting children or sabotaging pipelines to bring unrest, I would imagine they can jump on it.

      For all we know that’s what they’re doing.

  10. Gail,
    Thanks for the clarification! I have heard different scenarios put forth by well-meaning people over the past couple of years. I must admit I have a hard time getting my mind wrapped around some of these narratives and have thus far been unconvinced because none of them seem to comport with reality.

    I have had several discussions with a friend of mine who is confident that things are going on behind the scenes at the direction of Q (whoever that is). What I have found most concerning about these talks with my friend is that despite the fact that none of the particulars of “the plan” came to fruition during the allotted timeframe, he is still trustful of the source that has been obviously incorrect in their assessments.

    I guess I’m just very suspicious and cautious about giving any credence to any of this Q or Q-Anon stuff because in my view it is not sensible or logical. It seems to me to be a type of secular Gnosticism that is not well grounded in what is being actualized.

    I also see a danger in putting trust in this saga because it could lead to many of us who love the country as founded and put a premium on individual liberty and freedom to complacency or even despair. Complacency in the sense that those of qualified and able won’t engage in the process of running for sundry local, state and federal political positions. Or not seeing the necessity to engage and educate neighbors and friends about current events and how they affect their day to day lives because after all it’s a part of the plan so just sit back and watch. Despair in the sense that when none of these things pan out, they will completely disengage and never even vote again because they have been so demoralized. I certainly hope I’m wrong.

    At any rate I greatly appreciate all you do to bring us such substantive and thought proving content!

  12. Informative comments here, as always!! Here’s an article about the Bolshevik psyop technique that reminds me of this topic: https://www.informationliberation.com/?id=62008
    Lord have mercy on us!

  13. Natatlia,

    Thank you for sharing this information! I was unaware of this operation that happened in Russia. At first glance Q-Anon certainly does seem to mirror this Bolshevik method used.

    Yyyyyyiiiiiiiikkkkkeeeesss. All I can say is, I’m a lifelong resident of the DC Metro area, aka the Swamp. I also have critical thinking skills and know how to listen to other people with excellent critical thinking skills. Long ago, I figured out that my reaction to this was: ??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️

  15. Someone said to me today, “If Trump doesn’t win (come out on top), we don’t win.”

    I believe that already happened, in 2020.
