Hatred of 8chan and Q Leads to Libel Litigation

During the last two years, the mainstream media have collectively published hundreds (perhaps thousands) of articles about Qanon. Not one mainstream article, to my knowledge, has had anything positive to say about Q or his followers. Most articles portray Q as a devious prankster or a group of internet trolls and his followers as delusional racists fanatically obsessed with seeing pedophiles jailed. Critics have become so obsessed with destroying Q that they sometimes overstep the law. And now one man is going to court over his hatred of Q and 8chan.

Fredrick Brennan is the founder of the internet message board 8chan where Qanon posts. Jim Watkins assumed ownership of 8chan in 2015 and Brennan stayed on as an employee after the transfer. In 2018, Brennan terminated his employment with Watkins over irreconcilable differences. The summer of 2019 brought a media blitz against Q and 8chan. After a series of mass shootings, the media made repeated accusations (some of which have proven to be false) that 8chan promoted hate speech and violent extremism. The media’s articles were weaponized in an attempt to pressure companies that provide tech service to 8chan to cancel their service agreements. On August 5th, the plan to deplatfom 8chan succeeded. Cloudflare withdrew its service to 8chan, leaving them open to DDoS attacks. The website has been offline ever since.

On September 5th, Jim Watkins testified before Congress and explained the measures he was taking to deal with messages that endorse violence. (People have asked if a copy of Jim’s testimony might be obtained through FOIA, but that is not possible. Congress is not subject to the Freedom of Information Act. The release of the transcript is at the discretion of the committee, and at this time, they have not made it public). Fredrick Brennan took to Twitter on Septemeber 6th and 7th and attacked Watkins claiming, among other things, that he was going senile.

A month later, Brennan explained his motive for the attacks against Watkins and 8chan. He “has a vendetta with them.” (Brennan is also prone to posting tweets that are critical of Q and his followers.)

Defamation is the oral or written communication of a false statement about another that unjustly harms their reputation. Slander is spoken defamation. Libel is written defamation. In most jurisdictions, a case for defamation is based on two things: A false statement of fact, and malicious intent. In two tweets, Brennan made a false statement of fact (the claim that Watkins was going senile) and demonstrated maliciously intent (“I have a vendetta with them”). Watkins and Brennan live in the Philippines where defamation is a criminal matter. Watkins filed a criminal complaint with the local authorities. The complaint alleges that Brennan used the El Paso shooting spree to attack Watkins’ reputation and defame his character. (The full criminal complaint can be viewed here.)

Those who are connected to 8chan and those who support Q (including myself) have been defamed by internet trolls and the media for years and no one has pushed back. Watkins’ criminal complaint is a shot across the bow. A warning to all that false claims intended to harm us and silence our voices will not be tolerated. Though we greatly value freedom of speech and freedom of the press, both have limitations. Defamation should not be accepted by any community. When it is, bullies are emboldened to bring more attacks. The abusive tactics used by the press and social media companies are the reason why Devin Nunes filed lawsuits against Fusion GPS, McClatchy and Twitter. Nunes understands that until someone holds abusive people accountable for their behavior, the abuse will continue.

There are others in our community who probably have grounds for defamation lawsuits. The maker of Q Drops had their app pulled from the Apple store after NBC published an article by Ben Collins which made false statements about Q. The tone of the article made it clear that NBC’s intent was to get the app pulled from the Apple and Google stores. They intended to cause harm (defamation) to a legitimate business. Many of the claims the media make about Q are false and reporters know they are false. Making a statement of fact that you know or suspect is not true in an attempt to harm someone is the definition of defamation. (The maker of Q Alerts also had their app removed from the Apple store.)

Thinking that the first amendment allowed them to say anything they wanted, those who oppose Q and 8chan have had a good run with their libelous statements, but it seems the tide may have turned. Will they finally be held accountable? It will depend on how we, as a community, respond to their behavior.

(I have more articles in the works on this subject so stay tuned.)

Monday Observations on 8kun, Jim Watkins and Q

As we prepare for the return of 8chan/8kun and Q, I’d like to thank those who have not given up hope for a return of justice and liberty. Your prayers and encouragement to others are critical to the success of this mission.  Some people have expressed concern that the inability of 8chan/8kun to return to normal service and the inability of Q to continue posting is a poor reflection on Q, the President, and the integrity of the operation. A review of Q’s operation so far may provide a helpful perspective.

Q began posting on the 4chan board /pol/ on October 28, 2017 and chose that board for specific reasons.

4chan users can remain anonymous, which is why government employees sometimes use this board to drop information about public corruption.  Because Q’s operation involves the exposure of powerful, corrupt people, Q must remain anonymous if he wants to stay alive. 4chan provided the anonymity he needed. 4chan is frequented by computer geeks who are adept at bringing together information from articles, videos, public records, and other sources. The presence of thousands of skilled internet researchers is one reason why Q’s operation was launched on 4chan.

Anons have researched posts from intelligence community insiders (both real and fake) for years. People regularly show up on 4chan claiming to be an agent from the CIA or another intelligence agency. They’ll claim to have insider information on an investigation or predict the arrest of a famous person, and usually, they’re never heard from again. Many of these predictions don’t come true because a lot of these so-called insiders are frauds. Dealing with frauds has made the anons of 4chan a jaded lot. You have to provide a mountain of proof before they buy your “intelligence insider” story.

Q knew the anons were skeptics. It’s one reason he chose to post on 4chan. His messages needed to be vetted for legitimacy. He knew anons would intensely scrutinize his posts and if they could be verified, Q would gain the trust of some of the most skeptical people on the planet. Gaining the trust of skeptics was vital to the operation. Q claims to have access to the President. That claim could only be verified through careful and exhaustive analysis.

Once verified by anons, Q could provide vetted information about the real stories behind world events and the facts of history that have been hidden from us. Less than a month after he began posting, Q indicated that 4chan had been infiltrated, and he was moving to 8chan.

The CI_A (Snow White) has used every tool at their disposal to shut down Q’s operation. Q has attempted to overcome their attacks but that has caused additional connection and security problems.
After only a month and a half, the CI_A’s attacks had severely impacted Q’s ability to post securely.
On January 6th, 2018, moderators on the board Q had been posting on (/CBTS/) were causing problems. Q said he anticipated a short life on each platform due to verification (proofs) and the rapid spread of his message, which would bring opposition.
Q secures his identity with a password-protected tripcode. Because having the ability to authenticate his message is critical to his mission and because his identity was being questioned by people operating the board, on Jan 6th, 2018, Q informed anons he would not post on that board anymore.
On January 6th, on a new board called /thestorm/, Q asked 8chan’s technician Codemonkey (CM) if a read-only board could be set up which would allow him to post without replies.
On January 8th, Q posted on a read-only 8chan board called /greatawakening/.
That same day, Q began posting on a new 8chan board called /qresearch/ where anons could reply to his posts. (This is the most recent research board where Q has posted.)
On May 4th, 2018, Q confirmed he would be posting on a new “read-only” board called /patriotsfight/. (This is the most recent read-only board where Q has posted.)

Q could (as some have suggested) go back to posting on 4chan if his operation was only about providing information. But his operation requires him to verify that he is the actual person communicating to us. He left 4chan because it was infiltrated with enemies. Maintaining operational security and verifying his identity is critical if his message is to be taken seriously.

Q has chosen to post on 8chan because it provides a platform free of censorship, it provides anonymity, and it allows him to coordinate with anons who research and reply to his posts. 8chan is an ideal environment to carry out such an operation.

8chan has been offline since August 5th, 2019, because tech companies have been threatened and harassed into denying them service. Q and 8 chan have become a threat to the establishment to the point where Silicon Valley has been weaponized against them. I don’t see the inability of 8chan to return to normal service as a poor reflection on their ability to foresee problems and mitigate them. It’s evidence of the extremes that corrupt people will go to in order to keep their secrets hidden from the public.

I’ve read all the comments that have posted on my recent messages. Some readers have proposed simplistic solutions. If a simple solution were a viable option, it would have been implemented already. The problems are far more complex than most people realize. I trust that Codemonkey and Jim Watkins will have 8kun online soon. I suspect (but I can’t confirm) that they have several options for bringing the platform online, and they’re running through their options, one at a time. Rather than being critical of their methods, I would suggest being patient and perhaps, praying for them.

For those who are concerned about Q’s identity when he returns, Q’s tripcode is password protected. It secures his message and verifies his identity. I don’t think there is any reason to worry, but it would be wise to check out his posts when he returns and carefully evaluate whether it’s the same Q.

Many people have commented on the “odd” behavior of Jim Watkins on his recent live streams. I’ve taken a wait and see attitude on this. People have been messaging me for weeks, suggesting that Jim has been dropping coded messages in his live streams. Last night, two things became apparent:
1) Jim’s odd behavior (at least to a degree) is an act. Fearing he would be censored by YouTube, he’s been acting corny because, in his words, “corny people don’t get censored.”
2) It seems likely that Watkins may be dropping coded information on his live streams. If you’re an astute observer, and if you review his previous broadcasts, you might pick up a few things you didn’t see before.

8kun Update October 20, 2019

Jim Watkins: 8chan Will be Back Online in a Few Days

Q hasn’t posted in over a month while 8chan has been offline. 8chan owner Jim Watkins testified before the House Homeland Security Committee on September 5th. Jack Posobiec sat down with Watkins to discuss the questions he was asked by the committee and he talked about the future of 8chan. Rather than succumb to pressure from critics, Watkins said he is going to bring 8chan back online. In order to prevent future service interruptions, he’s building his own version of Cloudflare—the tech provider that cut service to 8chan. Watkins expects 8chan to be back online in a few days. Q may return once 8chan is back online.
