Musings on Clickbait "Truther" Networks
Not all anons are authentic, where have we heard that before?
There have always been infiltrators within patriot and truth seeking movements, why would there not be? Truth seeking movements, whether they’re about UFOs, 9/11, satanic cults, medical freedom, or any other topics the Deep State want to keep quiet would be target #1 for the Deep State to infiltrate in order to stifle their growth and marginalize these groups away from the mainstream consciousness. We know the FBI and CIA have had numerous psychological operations spanning back decades doing exactly that, COINTELPRO and PATCON being public ones. Logic would have it that there are more infiltration programs we don’t know about, even up to this current day. Especially in the current day.
My experience within the UFO circuit between 2017 and 2020 taught me a lot about how infiltrators and grifters in general operate. I learned how influencers are groomed and planted within movements to spread 90% truth with a carefully crafted 10% disinformation to lead people off the important trails. I saw how grifting schemes are operated by these influencers, and I saw how character assassination attempts are lobbied in order to discredit honest truth seekers. I also became privy to the narcissistic, cult-like speaking and virtue signaling that personalities will do to rope in audiences and build their following. These experiences within UFOlogy helped to hone my vigilance and allowed me to clearly see when influencers were working to take advantage of the Q movement, to which I became known to some as the “shill hunter” within it. The good ol’ Twitter days of 2018 and 2019 when random anonymous accounts were building up to spread their disinfo to Q world, but they were easily spotted by internet truth sleuths. Times are different now, though.
The internet has changed the game with how these influence operations are conducted. Gone are the days of having to groom personalities to appear at in person events and manage relationships face to face - now it’s as easy as creating some sock puppet accounts and flooding them to videos to pump their views or spam clickbait in comment sections to inflate the disinfo narratives. Don’t get me wrong, the clown personalities who show their faces and (supposed) names still exist, but they can comfortably sit behind a camera in their spare bedroom while railing off their latest bullshit “intel”, all while those sock puppet accounts post their garbage all around the web to rope in potential viewers into their audience. These internet based psy-ops are advanced, deep, and cunning.
In mid to late 2020, a few months after the scamdemic began, I noticed a shift in the way the patriot, in particular the Q movement, was forming. I presume that the Deep State took advantage of the scattering of the movement, when many prominent voices were censored off of Big Tech in late 2020, to insert their controlled opposition networks into it. They knew we were going to land on alternative apps like Rumble and Telegram, so they were probably waiting there with their disinfo nodes ready to go.
Now I don’t know who in these networks is an actual controlled opposition shill, that’s difficult to prove and even more difficult to get these influencers to admit to, but at the very least when they continuously promote wrong information and clickbait rhetoric you can place them in the useful idiot category. Although when they constantly promote disinformation, even after getting called out on it and proven wrong, yet still going to town with their same false narratives... then the controlled op red flags start going up.
I think it was June or July 2020 when I first stumbled across “Dr.” Charles Ward. He barely had a few thousand subscribers and maybe had a few hundred views on his videos, even though he claims to have had millions of viewers back then. I saw him doing interviews with Simon Parkes, Charlie Freak, and Robert David Steele on YouTube. They were all promoting JFK Jr. being alive, a fantasy “NESARA Law” being real, and other batshit claims. Santa Surfing was also doing interviews with that bunch, promoting NESARA heavily. That’s when this network, or “Team” as I call it, first appeared on my radar.
Moving into 2021, a few new names appeared in this network. We had Michael Jaco, Scott McKay, Juan O’ Savin, Jason Q, Nicholas Veniamin, and Gene Decode being appearing heavily with this bunch. Jaco, McKay, and Decode were each pumping the same rhetoric, heavy on the JFK Jr. claims, each pushing NESARA as being real, coming soon and magically ridding us of all of our debt. Charles Ward began dabbling in content about the flat Earth psy-op. I remember the first red flag I noticed with Michael Jaco, he claimed he had “sources” (unnamed, of course), telling him that “Trump signed the Insurrection Act!” shortly before Biden’s Inauguration. Ah, and who could forget Simon Parkes claiming he had a phone call with Q and Charles Ward claiming Biden’s inauguration was fake because he supposedly watched it 12 hours before it happened. All of this happened in only January! You could write novels on all the fake nonsense this “Team” has pumped out. I’m trying to keep this article short.
And you gotta love how these Brits like Charles Ward and Simon Parkes are somehow getting inside intel from American military operations. #1: wouldn’t happen. #2: operators don’t divulge. Logical thinking.
Throughout 2021 the rhetoric kept coming and it was easier to see. I caught a few of these personalities, Ward and Jaco in particular, lifting their “intel” off of fake news blogs like RealRawNews and Conservative Beaver. They would promote claims like Hillary Clinton was tried at GITMO or Klaus Schwab was arrested in their videos as “intel” that they had “heard”, not naming any specifics (big surprise), although if you checked those fake news blogs you could undoubtedly find an article with the exact headline in days prior.
The NESARA fakery kept coming, and somehow a “Quantum Financial System” was morphed in with it. Continuous claims of “it’ll be here this weekend!”, or “next week!”, or “the new financial system is about to get turned on!” have come endlessly from Charles Ward, Simon Parkes, and this crowd over the last few years. Not many people know how internet bloggers were scamming their audiences with NESARA tales all the way back in the 1990s, mind blowing to see clowns still promoting this stuff today. It’s the grift that keeps on giving, I suppose.
It’s not just NESARA, but so many other baseless claims permeate through this network. Underground tunnels and DUMBs (deep underground military bases) getting cleaned out is a big one that they often pump, with zero solid evidence of course. Another one is how Biden or Hillary or Obama is being played by an actor or clone, and pick-your-Deep-Stater is already arrested and being tried in GITMO by a military tribunal. Talk to “MedBeds” being rolled out by the military is another big one. JFK Jr. talk used to be, but not so much anymore. And they use feel good talk of “it’s a spiritual war” and “we’re all in this together” and “keep it up patriots” to pull on heart strings and rope in the vulnerable who can’t see past their virtue signaling.
It’s interesting how one particular narratives will make it’s way through the network, with a few dozen of these connected influencers promoting the exact same lines in their shows and channels. Echo chamber tactics. There are many more names that have come and gone from this “Team” than I have listed here, I’m simply touching on some of the more famous faces.
Into 2022, a few more names were promoted by this network, useful to their agendas I presume. Jason Shurka was paraded around the Team as he was launching his paid video streaming service. He soon came out with his own insider, “Ray”, from a supposed “The Light System” group that was combatting the Deep State around the world. “TLS” apparently chose Shurka to be their messenger to the world about these super secret operations. Ooookay. Another one was Derek Johnson, cowboy country singer turned internet streamer who apparently knows all the military laws like the back of his hand and has proof that Biden’s an actor clone and every single thing we’re seeing on the news is scripted by the white hats. Tarot by Janine is a popular one amongst this crowd, promoted in interviews by Michael Jaco and Scott McKay, apparently knowing everything that’s going on in the world based upon her tarot card pulls. I’ll never forget when Janine and Jaco claimed General Flynn was a Deep Stater because of a tarot card she pulled. Sounds legit. Benjamin Fulford got involved with this bunch, too, which is funny because he’s been spouting his nonsense “intel” that he gets from unnamed sources online for over a decade. I remember reading his stuff back in 2012. And let’s not forget our newest clown in the circus, SGAnon (real name Stephen Harvey). You guessed it, SGAnon promotes all the same nonsense that the likes of Ward, Jaco, and the rest of of the “Team” do - the Earth is flat, NESARA is real, tribunals are happening, RealRawNews is legit, and all that good (bad) stuff.
It goes to note that many of these personalities ride the coattails of Q’s popularity in order to rope in their followers, too. We were told that “not all anons are authentic”, weren’t we? Infiltration over invasion, and all assets deployed? Too bad some Q followers out there didn’t take these warnings from Q to heart.
I view these networks as basically the mainstream media of the alternative media. They use the exact same tactics, from their echo chamber promotion of claims, to using unnamed anonymous sources, to spouting unverified nonsense with zero evidence, to acting as self-proclaimed experts. Then you have loads of channels and accounts all over Telegram, YouTube, Rumble, and other social media platforms promoting their content. Who knows who runs those. It appears to me like there is some serious, professional infrastructure working to platform and promote these influencers and their narratives. Anyone’s guess as to who’s really behind all this.
Also, the hate and vitriol received when anyone dares question these individuals and this network is highly notable. As for myself, I receive and incredible amount of backlash whenever I dare question Charles Ward, or Simon Parkes, or SGAnon, or Derek Johnson, or really any of them. Granted, I do believe a few of these commenters are honest people who are new to this Great Awakening and are genuinely duped, but I would also venture to guess that some of the backlash I receive is at the hands of paid clickfarm shills working to silence any dissent against these influence operations. “You’re just jealous, Jordan!”, “You’re mad because you don’t get real intel!”, “Quit acting like a know it all!”, “You don’t know if what they’re saying isn’t true, prove it!”, “Quit being negative!”, “Just leave them alone!”, “Same team!”. If I had a nickel for every time I got a cult-like comment from a butthurt, cognitive dissonance suffering individual upset that I questioned their false idols, I might be as rich as some of these clickbaiters. I mean, isn’t is a wonder how Jaco was able to move himself to a waterfront condo in Florida, Scott McKay could afford a massive tour bus with a custom Harley, and Tarot by Janine is looking at vacation property in British Columbia?
The “same team!” line is the one that grinds my gears the most. Our “Team” shouldn't be some ideological group, our team should be the TRUTH, whatever it may be - even if that truth goes against our ego identity. If some so-called patriot is being a prick, grifter, or lying to their audience, there should be no problem in calling them out, even if they're "on the same team". I mean, that’s not someone I would want on my team anyway, would you?
One of the worst things in my mind is that these clickbait narratives that irresponsible and/or deceptive “truthers” and “patriot” push is that it’s weaponized by the mainstream media against the whole movement. How many articles has the mainstream media printed using flat Earth, NESARA, JFK Jr., or tribunal nonsense to bash Q and “conspiracy theories” in general? It’s the poison the well tactics. This is another reason why I think there might be something deeper behind the set up of this “Team” and the infiltration of these narratives into this movement, makes for perfect cannon fodder to marginalize it with.
The truth movement is the wild west right now, with very little self-policing. That’s how many of these influencers have been able to spread their nonsense unabated and unchallenged. There are many vulnerable people who are scared, looking for hope in the midst of their fear about the world. That’s one reason so many have latched onto the hopium (false hopes) from this network. We must be vigilant, and we must use discernment and critical thinking. Keep your mind open, but not so open that your brains fall out.

I don't think you actually realize how important these fake "truther" articles are, Jordan. Pretty sure you wake up hundreds, perhaps thousands, of captured Normies with each one. Thank you.
