Urmuf Hamer: Can they teach me antifa? DNRTFATIF


Q2 of next year; it's still in early beta.  Apparently the translations from Klingon --> Antifa are nowhere close to widespread-release.

The grift must flow

Nickle-n-dime grifter is too dumb to realize he needs a 501(c)(4) to run a "think tank" like the ones Bannon and other Fox talking heads use.

Rich conservatives will funnel enough thru them to keep you fat and happy just so you're in their pundit stable for sound bites.

All that training so you can become an operative in an organization that overthrows governments and kills people at their own whim.

Shipp quit the agency in 2002 after being accused of using a government credit card for personal expenses, according to The New York Times. (Shipp claimed a supervisor had approved the purchases and that he repaid the money).

Yeah, this guy sounds legit.

Exactly, because real CIA ops don't retire. they just fall into disuse until called upon to start up again.

WTF?

Well, it is time I set up my webpage and conspiracy theory for the grifting the stupid red hats.

/Hmmm
//Kammala Harris is actually the secret love child of Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi. That should do it.
///Made in China T-shirts and hats for only $49.95 each. That should do it.

Farking idiots.

I saw a documentary about that on youporn.  That Q guy has some strong feelings about what his sexual partner's role is.

You should head over to r/QAnonCasualties and take a look.  You might feel differently.

QAnon is a dangerous cult, and anyone feeding them is making the problem much, much worse.

I've been saying for a while: The market is out there for someone to emerge as the Q-flavored Mike Warnke. Go out there, claim that you were totes part of the Deep State and that you've taken adrenochrome, (though you never killed any children yourself,) that everything Q says about the conspiracy is real, but that you found Jesus after watching Paula White one TV and dedicated your life to atoning for your past actions by exposing the satanic pedophiles and electing Republican politicians. You'll make bank.

This guy is going about it wrong, though: First, he calls QAnon a psy-op, which means that in order to take him seriously people would have to believe in all the whackadoo cannibalism stuff but disavow the Q movement, which will cut his market share way down. Second, people give no shiats about counter-surveillance techniques that you can learn on Wikihow. What they want is confirmation. Ironclad confirmation that their political enemies are as bad as Q says they are, that the conspiracy is real, the Storm is coming, and the collective delusion that they've destroyed their marriage over was totally worth it.

If you can hit all those notes well enough to convince a significant number of rubes you will make bank. You'll be evil and committing stochastic terrorism that will literally kill people, but you should also be pulling in fat stacks of cash.

If I ever meet one I'll tell them I heard there was a nationwide roundup and a few hundred were arrested and put into mental hospitals. It was from OAN or Daily Eire or somewhere. Can't really remember. I did hear it though.

I had a govt card for awhile. It was Amex and we were allowed to use it for small purchases but it had to be paid off every month. One guy got busted because the bought a vintage Mustang or something. I used mine for the occasional rental car when I was on vacation and didn't have a real credit card. They didn't accept VISA/debit cards at the time. No one ever said a word.

YMMV depending on where you work.

To sell the shirts it has to be like this - $15.95 Reduced to $2.50. The strikeout lines are mandatory. The reduced words are optional.

Right, good point. I should also through in a Secret Club Membership with a numbered certificate that proves that only 2,000 people can sign up.

For the low low price of $300 a day I can teach you why fascism is bad over zoom. Now if you want to become an official *giggles* member, I offer a $4000 four week course. If you graduate, and only the smartest, most attractive, and dedicated people do, you will receive your official antfee membership card, valid everywhere antfee is active!

Isn't this the guy that did the legwork for Rudy Guiliani in tracking down Trump's Deep-State-impeachment enemies while also finding more "dirt" on the Bidens?

/working in "official" capacity for the president's "unofficial" lawyer?

Is that a real person? He appears to smell of sour milk and stale cigarettes.
 
2020-09-05 6:57:33 PM  
The "government illegal activity" he exposed was the presence of toxic mold in his Army-owned house at Camp Stanley in Texas, which he blamed for somehow destroying his marriage.

Psst. Shipp.  What destroyed your marriage was you being a farking nutjob.

CIA people can be a lot like engineers. In that they can appear smart and perform some rather complicated tasks, yet still be full on Trump Voters. The vast majority of the work that goes on in the CIA is translation, reading papers, writing reports, mundane office work, very little is anything close to badass spy shiat. The article makes him sound like a low level dirtbag that didn't go far and they wanted a reason to fire.

Perhaps he was a Support guy who got nowhere near Operations or Analysis. He could have been a T1 IT guy or something.

...and Shipp will explain how he moved to an "off-the-grid farm in the American southeast,"

...
Orange comes in when the subject thinks they are being surveilled, tracked, or followed-something that Shipp believes happens to him constantly.

He's off the grid, but they're constantly surveilling him.

Oh, I'm SURE all his data is current.
