Where Do You Find Faith?


I look to the Heavens and see God there, waiting patiently.

Shabbat starts tonight. For so many people the quiet doesn’t bring a respite from the toil of the workweek. For them the stillness brings back pain. Pain they would rather ignore.

I remember when my father in law, a”h, went to assisted living. 

He promptly acted like he belonged there. You would never know if he was sitting quietly all day along with the other people as if he belonged, but didn’t. As if he wasn’t fully aware, but was. 

I think he simply did not want us to have to worry about him.

Looking back on the people who we encountered there, how many were trying to forget all the bad memories that sitting quietly all day can bring?

Trauma lives forever in the body. That is the sad truth. The most one can do is acknowledge one’s feelings and sit with them.

Where do you find your faith?

This Shabbat I hope that you don’t need to. I hope He reaches out and holds your hand. Finds you.

Becoming Brand-Driven: A Cure For What Ails You


The key difference between the terms "brand management" and "management" is the term "brand." Here, we use it to refer to the intangible value added by the customer's feelings toward the organization--a combination of awareness, trust, loyalty and positive identification. While visual and verbal symbols matter (the logo and the tagline), they are only a limited expression of the entity.

Yes, Marketing Is Management -- and Vice Versa

  • Branding is everything: Because customers include everyone who deals with the organization, branding actually encompasses all facets of operations.
  • Cutting costs matters: The point of branding is to add value. You want to find and leverage value where it lives while minimizing time spent on wasted efforts. 

5 Symptoms of a Problem

    1. Employees are there for the paycheck only. Morale is poor. They're disengaged, unenthusiastic, inexplicably angry. 
    2. Executives manage upward well, but have lost touch with the customer. They tend to deny negative feedback. They do not have a clear understanding of results. When something goes wrong, it's everyone else's fault but their own. 
    3. The organization seems to drift. It goes from initiative to initiative with no real anchor or compass.
    4. Innovation is stagnant. People are afraid to share new ideas or important feedback. Collaboration is discouraged.
    5. Team members struggle to imagine what the organization might look like in the future.  Privately they wonder whether it might even go extinct. 

    3 Things That Need To Happen To Get Back On Track

    1. Alignment: The business strategy must affect the behavior of employees on a day-to-day level. The two should move in lock step at all times, but they're also fluid. If you change the strategy, behavior changes and vice versa.  
    2. Ruthlessly customer-centric: The brand-centric organization is by definition customer-centric because the customer is the entire reason that the organization exists. As such, if any aspect of operations detracts from the customer experience, it is either excised or modified to the maximum extent possible. 
    3. Employees first: The brand at its core is about intangible value. This kind of value is created, produced consistently, and improved upon by human beings. As such, they are the primary audience (even though they appear to cost money). 

    How To Institutionalize It

    • Top-down and side-to-side: In order for branding to work, the head of the organization must take the lead, supported by a committee of senior executives.
    • Clearly defined roles: The job of the leader and the committee is to jointly determine what the brand stands for, establish what that means in terms of practical day-to-day operating principles, and create a structure within which people can “live the brand” within the structure of their jobs. 

    5 Things To Put In Your Brand Manifesto

    Brand structure starts with a "manifesto." It is a sacred document, an organizational Constitution, and defines:

    1. Vision: What difference do we seek to make in the world?
    2. Mission: How will we make the vision happen? 
    3. Values: What do we truly believe, on a serious and deep level, that informs and affects every aspect of the work that we do?
    4. Rules of behavior: What do we expect from you, and what can get you kicked out of town?
    5. Accountability measures: The brand makes a promise, and accordingly its key stakeholders are given certain rights of redress. What are those? Spell it out. These measures should include the general principles of compensation that the organization applies.

    The brand is about something higher than a specific product or service. As such, it does not need to get into a laundry list of competitors. 

    Culture, The Secret Weapon

    There is no way to "write down" your culture, but without knowing what this "secret sauce" actually is, the organization is doomed to fail. 

    When you make crystal clear who you are and why you stand on this Earth today, this enables people at all levels of the organization to make simple decisions quickly and identify complex matters requiring the engagement of others. 

    When you make the brand truly accountable, people are free to interact with it, knowing that their rights are protected by an organization that says what it means and means what it says. 

    Proof of Concept

    How do you know your brand has gotten better? Over time, the strategy yields fruit. Employees are proud to be associated with it, they are proud of their good work and they are proud of the people they work with. The air you breathe feels clean, safe and productive. And in a way that seems very natural, the organization regularly parts ways with people and projects that aren't a good fit, while building on the success of others.

    A Warm and Welcoming Members-Only Shul Meeting


    It was a tossup as to whether we would go to the special shul membership meeting last night. Hadn’t there been enough unpleasantness?

    “But this is all there is, OK? When one of us dies (God forbid but nobody lives forever), these are the people who will help to bury them.”

    Such is decision-making here. The most morbid scenario wins.

    “But no running your mouth like you did the last time, and making a whole scene.”

    “I promise,” I said and as usual was thinking, “except if...”

    He gave me a sidelong glance as if to say “I know you have your fingers crossed behind your back but fine, we’ll go anyway.”

    Well I guess they anticipated a ruckus because there were not one, but two security guards. They stood there flanking the doors as if expecting a riot.

    And I was scared. Personally. This was such new ground for me. You have to know I did not even go to synagogue for many years. It was just too awful. All the judging eyes. The dynamics. The fear of not being good enough. The closeted nature of being less than fully Orthodox in a very strict community.

    We moved near Magen David and I didn’t even know what to do about shul. It was my daughter who picked it.

    There was no rabbi at the time, or they were between rabbis. I was fine with that. I tend to think we over-value them. 

    The rabbi is not this magical figure, but we always seem to need a false god to worship. You need someone to do specific things, like say the prayers and read from the Torah. Supervise the food, and render halachic decisions. If you’re in the hospital, God forbid, a chaplain.

    There is a difference between the rabbi and a rebbe, of course. The rebbe is a figure who is highly advanced in terms of their character development—he is not just learned. The rebbe is there for the people at all stages of life. He is a mystical and mythical figure.

    The Lubavitcher rebbe, may he rest in peace,was my rebbe. I cry for the loss even now.

    So we go to the meeting and being very security conscious I practically jump every time I hear the door creak open. But it is just other members, running late.

    The shul president gave a relatively straightforward linear presentation as to the chronology of recent events and where we stand today. The rabbi simply didn’t want to stay there full-time; it seemed to me that he wanted to embark on a larger project, something connected to halachic reform, or modernization, or call it whatever you want. He didn’t want to lie to the people about his future plans. Kol HaKavod.

    It was clear that they tried to keep him. I will say that for me, this would have been fine as how often do I go to shul and how involved am I in volunteering? Not much. 

    And the rabbi and his wife were there for us when we needed them. They brought spirituality and community. Plus, anytime there was a concern about the safety or wellbeing of children, there was no question that the children came 100% first.

    The leadership and selflessness displayed by the Board impressed me. I was raised to look out for myself. That is not what these people do. 

    I remembered a line from the show “Transparent,” where the Israeli bodyguard is talking to the young American Jew who can’t understand how everyone in Israel spends three years in the army: “It’s about thinking about something larger than yourself.”

    The people had an opportunity to ask questions and make comments, each in turn. There were clear ground rules: No shouting allowed; take your turn. All questions were encouraged and allowed. All rumors were listened to and addressed.

    I though to myself more than once that you can’t take the people you love for granted; you can’t take your shul for granted; you can’t take for granted that the religious lessons you learned in school will be taught the same way somewhere else. It’s up to you to invest, not complain.

    Our shul is one of those places that is really about the shul, not the rabbi. Our community is investing in a process of soul-searching.

    Someone made an excellent comment. “The shul must decide if it is primarily a religious institution or a cultural one.” In other words, are we there to provide an Orthodox synagogue experience? Or are we there to provide a place for Sephardic kin to get together and shmooze?

    I do not think you have to choose between the two. But I do think that you have to choose whether the shul is Orthodox or not (clearly yes, although the members may not practice fully; I don’t). And that the pulpit should not be a place to push anyone’s agendas—or build personal brands.

    Ahavas Israel Is Not "Inclusive"

    "Inclusive diversity"--meaning "creating an inclusive environment where diverse perspectives are encouraged and embraced"--is appropriate at work. But it is not appropriate for a religious Jewish environment, such as a shul, yeshiva or camp. Rather, simple love and compassion is appropriate, combined with an emphasis on beliefs and behaviors that are consistent with what the Torah teaches us.

    Why can't religion be inclusive too? It's not rocket science: A religious Jewish environment is based on the Torah, which is God-given and as such not at all a model of "inclusive diversity." The Torah is very definitive about privileging certain people, and certain views, based on certain behaviors.

    As a God-given body of law, the Torah is not subject to negotiation. It can only be interpreted based on certain generally accepted principles. And when it comes to religion, we only honor as valid the interpretations of people considered both legitimately Jewish and halachically observant.

    Unfortunately, most Jews today are not familiar with their religion, their culture or their history beyond the superficial. Also unfortunately, what they do know, or think they know, is not reflective of actual Torah scholarship but rather some watered-down, Westernized version of our history. Just like Americanized Chinese food, it doesn't have the same taste at all.

    The story of "Pinchas the zealot" is a very good example. Many people think of Pinchas as an extreme, radical fundamentalist whose actions were ill-advised. But just the opposite is true.

    For some context: The evil sorcerer Balak, a Moabite, ganged up with the Midianites to try and undercut the Jews by having a prophet curse them. But in the end, God forced this man to bless the Jews instead. Unfortunately, the Moabites and the Midianites found a way to get the Jews in trouble anyway--by luring them into immorality, and subsequently idolatrous practices. 

    Finally, Pinchas saw a Jew and one such woman engaged in the act in the holy tent. Where Moses and the elders could only weep in sorrow, Pinchas immediately slaughtered both of them, an act so just that God blesses him in Numbers 25:10-13 with the eternal priesthood--noting that the Jews would otherwise have been slaughtered by Him as a punishment.

    The message from the Bible is clear. From God's perspective, sexual immorality is not something to be "learned from" or "leveraged." Your job as a Jew is to eliminate it from the people. Period.

    As a Jew, operating in a religious Jewish environment, there are times when you simply cannot honor everyone's choices equally.

    But the Jews are kindhearted, and they keep on trying to. In fact, in the Torah, this theme of misplaced mercy comes up over and over again. And it is at the heart of Parshas Matot, which we read this week in shul.

    To recap: In Bamidbar (Numbers) 31:2, God commands the Jews to violently attack the Midianites, in an act of revenge for their effort to defile the people's morality. In the course of the war, the warriors at first spare the lives of the Midianite women who held orgies with the Jewish men to take them into immorality and idolatry. But Moshe rebukes them, again, directing them to do things that would surely offend a modern Western secular democratic audience (Bamidbar 31:15-18):
    • First, Moses tells them to kill the women, as well as the male children. Today we would call this "genocide."
    • Then they were given permission to take the foreign virgins "for yourselves." This is a position that today might be be considered comparable to ISIS kidnapping Yazidi women and taking them as sex slaves.
    Of course nowadays we do not behave as harshly as they did in Old Testament times. But still, the actions taken then reverberate with us as we understand that God does not entertain positions that are based on political correctness.

    Throughout Jewish history, the line between harshness and mercy has been a frequent topic of debate among Orthodox rabbis. In ancient times, Rabbi Hillel (more lenient) and Rabbi Shammai (stricter) exemplified this debate, and it continues in various forms till this day.

    But at the very least, the line between Orthodox and non-Orthodox was clear. You knew an Orthodox person when you saw one," and assumed that any variances in opinion were at least grounded in the same set of rules.

    When the Conservative, Reform and other denominations came on the scene, their operating framework was clearly not Orthodox, allowing Orthodox people to maintain a clear distinction between the different strains of belief among the Jewish people.

    But the same is not true with today's "Open Orthodox" rabbis. Some of them are indeed Torah-true. Others, based on the actions they promote, are clearly not believers in the Torah, despite calling themselves authentically Orthodox.

    It is not loving to lie like this. If you're an Orthodox rabbi, you owe it to people to act like it.

    Otherwise, please do everyone a favor and let someone else wear the brand.

    Halacha Is Not A One-Man Show


    If you believe we need to change the normative view of Halacha, okay. But then bring other normative practitioners of Halacha along with you. This is how the Jewish community has always functioned, and it is how we can tell who is within the mainstream and who is not.

    Unfortunately one person who is believed to be an Orthodox Jewish rabbi has diverged from this path.  What this rabbi says sounds great: You can be observant AND—use tap water for a mikvah, and chametz dishes on Pesach. You don’t need an eruv. Married women are not required to cover their hair. You can have a meat potluck with people who don’t necessarily keep kosher, because you should trust that they wouldn’t break your trust (Purim 2017). Pretty much any cheese, supervised or not, (with a few exceptions), should just be considered kosher, and vegan restaurants don’t require kosher supervision.

    He issues halachic rulings that sound well reasoned and maybe they are.

    But like they say about schemes to make a million dollars, if you’ve discovered the way, why hasn’t mainstream Orthodoxy saved themselves much trouble and followed you?

    Judith Light in Transparent, & the Hidden Abuse of Jewish Women


    Just finished Season 4, Ep. 8 where Shelly (Judith Light) tells her kids about the ongoing molestation she experienced at the hands of a beloved teacher when she was only 10 years old.

    “I was only 10,” she practically whispers.

    It is impossible to capture in words the expressions on her family’s faces as she reveals her “secret.”

    Her ex-husband is transgender and almost completely obsessed with himself, and his long-held secret: “I thought you were talking about me.”

    Her character in the show is 69 years old and she has to whisper this because it is so bad.

    She went to the mental hospital twice; is it any wonder?

    “I thought you went to Fresno,” says her daughter.

    “There was this teacher, this Mr. Stenger, who said that he saw my talent. Or so I thought.”

    We see a grinning teacher. He doesn’t “look” like a pedo.

    “And then, when we were alone, the things happened. And I stopped eating.”

    “I...was...molested.”

    The pain of that scene is so vivid, my hands are shaking just writing this. 

    It is impossible not to cry.

    What might have been if Shelly Pfefferman had never been molested as a 10-year-old?

    What is the hidden impact on her, her ex-husband, her children, her grandchildren?

    If this is the plot of a popular TV show, what do we not know about our own beloved foremothers?

    What justice is owed to them, and their descendants?

    I'm Not Orthodox. Why Do I Write About Orthodox Judaism?

    From a Jewish point of view, the world depends on a few basic things to survive. Two of them are the province of every human being -- a belief in God, and acts of human kindness. But the third is the province of the Jewish people -- the Torah.
    "Shimon HaTzaddik was from the remnants of the Great Assembly.
    He used to say:
    On three things the world stands.
    On Torah,
    On service [of God],
    And on acts of human kindness."
     - Pirkei Avot (Ethics of the Fathers) 1:2
    If we fail to understand, practice and teach the Torah -- or failing that, to support those who do -- then the world loses out on an authentic understanding of it, and a fundamental basis of the world's survival is jeopardized.

    This is why, although I am not Orthodox, I write about and support Orthodox Judaism. Jews represent a tiny fraction of the world's population - just .2% (that's point-two, not two). As of 2013, just 10% of American Jews were Orthodox. Meanwhile, in Israel, only 15-20% of the Jewish population considers itself Orthodox or ultra-Orthodox (big distinction).

     Taking The Jewish "Placement Test" 

    So we went someone's house the other day and of course ended up discussing the local "Jewish geography." As it turns out we know many of the same people and have circled around the same two or three cities in our lifetime.

    "Did you know that there are only 14 million Jews in the world?" this person said, meaning, as we often hear, that "it's a small Jewish world" and as a corollary, each of us plays a vital role in keeping the Jewish people alive.

    The three pillars of Jewish existence are the people themselves (the nation), the Torah and the land of Israel. As such the person then turned from nation to Torah, and gave us what I consider a "Jewish placement test," asking: "Do you drive on Shabbat?" (At that, we answered honestly with a nod of the head.) 

    He asked this question because not driving on Shabbat is a significant marker of being Orthodox, and being Orthodox is  statistically correlated with one’s commitment to Jewish continuity. For example, a 2013 Pew survey of American Jews found:
    "...nearly all Orthodox Jewish parents (98%) say they are raising their children in the Jewish faith, compared with 78% of other Jewish parents. Orthodox Jews are much more likely than other Jews to have attended a Jewish day school, yeshiva or Jewish summer camp while growing up, and they are also more likely to send their children to these kinds of programs."

    Zionism and Judaism are Distinct

     Some people prefer to substitute Zionism for Judaism as they advance their commitment to Jewish survival. However, from an Orthodox perspective, Jewishness means honoring the observance of the Torah in the Holy Land. As Rabbi Dr. Akiva Tatz puts it: "God gave Abraham and his family the Land of Israel as a laboratory where his descendants are supposed to create the nation that’s the model for the world." 

    That model is not only about moral behavior, but also about respect for the Torah as a fundamental pillar of our National existence--even if not everyone is observant.

    So What Is An "Orthodox" Jew?

    Rabbi Jack Abramowitz (books), writing at Jew In The City, does a good job of answering the question.

    Key point #1: "Orthodox" Really Means "Authentic" 

    “'Orthodox' is an artificial construct, invented simply as a convenience to differentiate the traditional Jews from the offshoots. There is no law of Orthodoxy, there’s simply observing the Torah."

    Key Point #2: Sabbath Observance Matters Due To Its Halachic Implications

    "Sabbath observance is generally the make-or-break determiner of observance. [This is because] it has significance in Jewish law, such as defining eligibility to serve as a witness and to handle wine without concern." 

    Key Point #3: An "Orthodox Home" Fundamentally Means Keeping Kashrut and Family Purity 

    Writing in the comments, Alex Shmuel Brown asks:
    "Rabbi J, I thought the informal criteria were the "big 3": Shabbos observant, observing laws of kashrut, and the laws of family purity." 
    In response, the rabbi says: 
    "Those are certainly considered the three pillars of an Orthodox home but only one of those things has particular consequences in Jewish law.  
    "If someone doesn't keep too kosher, he might still be a valid witness. If someone doesn't observe the laws of family purity, it doesn't affect wine they may have handled. But if someone is a habitual public Sabbath-desecrator, that affects their status as an observant Jew. 
    "The question was 'where's the line?' Shabbos isn't the entirety of the picture by any stretch - the other mitzvos are also important! - but for the purposes of the question asked, that's where the line is." 

    Key Point #4: Beliefs Are Relevant To Determining Whether Someone Is Orthodox

    Judaism is primarily a religion of action, not faith. However, notes Rabbi Abramowitz, "in terms of philosophy, Maimonides outlines thirteen “principles of faith” that Jews are expected to accept." From Judaism 101, here they are:
    1. G-d exists
    2. G-d is one and unique
    3. G-d is incorporeal [has no material existence]
    4. G-d is eternal
    5. Prayer is to be directed to G-d alone and to no other
    6. The words of the prophets are true
    7. Moses' prophecies are true, and Moses was the greatest of the prophets
    8. The Written Torah (first 5 books of the Bible) and Oral Torah (teachings now contained in the Talmud and other writings) were given to Moses
    9. There will be no other Torah
    10. G-d knows the thoughts and deeds of men
    11. G-d will reward the good and punish the wicked
    12. The Messiah will come
    13. The dead will be resurrected

    So How Can We Quickly Determine If Someone Is Orthodox?

    Rabbi Abramowitz:
    "If you ask me, anyone who keeps Shabbos, self-identifies as Orthodox, and doesn’t hold any beliefs that Maimonides’ list would call heretical could qualify. If they dress differently than I do or eat in places I wouldn’t, they may be less observant (or I may be overdoing things) but that’s the way things have always been."

    Why Does Any Of This Matter?

    Nowadays, we live in a very mixed-up world. Instead of focusing on people's actions to determine whether they are moral or not, we focus on their words. Instead of seeking truth, we honor everyone's personal testimony as a substitute and even dispute the concept that reality actually exists separate and apart from the eye of the beholder. 

    And when it comes to Judaism, we seem to have lost the ability to objectively articulate what is true and not true, real and not real, valid and not valid from a halachic perspective, separate and apart from whether I keep to halacha or you do. 

    In fact, anyone who tries to say "this is a Jewish value, this is not; this is authentic Torah, this is not" is almost automatically derided by their audience. "Who are you to say such a thing? You're not all that religious."

    There is a very real war between good and evil taking place all the time in our world. Jews are central to that war, because Jews were and are responsible for carrying the torch of Torah observance.

    I care about Jewish survival and I care about the survival of the world. We have to get ourselves into the game in some form or fashion, or else we are leaving the future to people whose motives may or may not be honorable.

    The 85 Theses of #QAnon (All Quoted)

    1. Fed/Banking: The US Federal Reserve is a privately-owned company, sitting on its very own patch of land, immune to the US laws. The Fed was formed under the direction of powerful banking families e.g., (Morgan, Rockefeller, Rothschild, more…) and works on their behalf.
    2. 9–11 / Bin Laden: Truth about the 9/11 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center in 2001. The schemes made by the Bush family, Bin Laden family, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan. The money exchange for Osama bin Laden’s capture/death in Pakistan.
    3. Airplanes/TSA: 7 out 10 Airplane crashes are targeted kills. Planes flying cash pallets into Iran & Syria. Private planes ferrying out Bin Laden family on 9/11. Military planes crashing at unprecedented rates (evidence of the silent war).
    4. Antifa: Domestic terrorist organization sponsored by Soros. Goal is to promote hate, violence and division across the USA. Antifa rhetoric and symbolism (see Antifa flag) parallels the Nazi party. Antifa is NOT an organic movement.
    5. Armenia: Armenia, a country once under CIA control, has been liberated. Part of the Uranium One supply chain scheme.
    6. Asia: POTUS historic trip to Asia in 2017 that changed the world (e.g., North Korea peace deal). Asia part of the Uranium One scandal supply chain. Obama following/trailing POTUS in Asia. Red Cross in Asia. CIA black ops site in Thailand (comms center). Snowden hiding in Hong Kong. North Korea / US peace summit in Singapore.
    7. Australia: Australia is part of the international Five Eyes spying ring, a large donor to the Clinton Foundation, and home to the Rothschild family. Q has stated that the UK is actually in control of Australia.
    8. BOOM: BOOMs are precursors to significant events that are unfolding or about to happen. BOOMs can represent big wins for MAGA or big setbacks for the Deep State and Global Cabal.
    9. Big Pharma: Big Pharma has the cures, but it’s more profitable to keep you alive, sick and dependent on them. US taxpayer subsidizes meds for the rest of the world. Designer diseases created by those in power for population control and $$$.
    10. Black Vote: The Black Vote is critical to the Democrats; they cannot win elections without it. Through projection, and with help from the MSM and corrupt local / national black leaders, D’s keep the Black Population in a state of victimhood, keep them needy and dependent on Democrats as their benefactors. This is a modern form of enslavement.
    11. Bloodlines/Wives/Husbands: Q says to trace the bloodlines of the NWO families and to follow the wives/husbands of the key players in the game. The NWO families marry to each other not for love, but to consolidate power and control. Wives and husbands of key players are often benefactors of deals made (donations, promotions, etc.)
    12. Border Security / The Wall: US border states such as Arizona and California are critically important. They represent the gateway/pipeline for many bad things to enter our country: MS-13/illegals, sex trafficking (children), drugs, guns, China/Russia intel pass-through and more. The above are sources of revenue for the CIA to fund off-the-record black ops. Big money / cash flow is involved and Trump’s Wall will terminate it.
    13. Cabal/Elites/NWO: Three families combined form the NWO (House of Saud, Rothschild and Soros). Through many generations, their bloodlines have accumulated mass wealth and power. With this wealth/power they have formed a Global Cabal in control of many governments, officials, institutions and corporations.
    14. Canada: Canada played an important role in the Uranium One scandal, and was part of the supply chain transporting the uranium to the EU.
    15. China: China is one of key countries run by President Xi who is helping POTUS with North Korea (Forbidden City meeting). CIA had assets in China working with Facebook on the F9 spying algorithm. China was involved in shady deals with Dem leaders and has dirt on them (America for Sale).
    16. Clowns in America (CIA): Where to begin… “Clowns in America” is the Q moniker for the CIA. The CIA has its hands in almost everything world wide, are in bed with the Tri Families (NWO), run the MSM 4AM news agenda, and are waging a silent war against POTUS and the NSA. There is no hope for the CIA (corruption too deep) and the organization will be dismantled / subsumed by the NSA.
    17. Comms/Marker/Proof: Markers are the cryptic communication method used by Q to foretell future events. News unlocks the Markers (future proves the past). Markers provide undeniable proof of Q’s legitimacy.
    18. DC Swamp / Deep State: The DC Swamp is the established, corrupt politicians who serve their own interests. The Deep State is the clandestine network entrenched inside the government, bureaucracy, intelligence agencies, and other governmental entities. The corruption that will come out is so serious that deals must be cut for people to walk away otherwise 70% of elected politicians would be in jail.
    19. DNC Leaks/Seth Rich: Collection of Democratic National Committee (DNC) internal emails published (leaked) by DCLeaks and WikiLeaks during the 2016 Democratic National Convention. Seth Rich was the source leaks, miffed that the DNC railroaded Barry Sanders. Seth Rich was subsequently murdered by MS-13 hitmen. DNC had CrowdStrike investigate their servers and falsely claim that Russian hackers were behind the leak. Meanwhile, neither the FBI nor CIA ever examined the servers.
    20. Dems: The Democratic Party is one of the two major contemporary political parties in the United States, along with the Republican Party. The D’s have the most to lose by the Great Awakening.
    21. Dossier / Spygate: The coordinated effort by the Obama administration and Clinton campaign to prevent the election of Donald Trump, and delay/shelter/mask/hide all illegal activities by Hussein/others during the past 8 years. Included the false “pee-pee” dossier paid for by Hillary Clinton, spies and dupes planted in Trump’s campaign to infer Russian collusion, pretentious meetings with Russian agents to entrap Trump’s family members, falsified FISA applications, the unmasking of Trump campaign internal communications, and the appointment of Special Counsel Mueller to lead the Witch Hunt.
    22. Election: Safeguarding US election integrity by stopping: election rigging/theft, fraudulent voting, hacking of voting systems, compromised voting machines, etc.
    23. Emailgate: Hillary Clinton’s use of a private (non-secure) email server for official communications during her tenure as US Secretary of State rather than State Department email accounts and secure servers. Additionally, Hillary’s private server was used to sell Special Access Programs (SAPs) to the highest bidder. The bogus investigation into Hillary’s private server by CrowdStrike.
    24. Epstein Island/Temple: Epstein Island (aka Little Saint James, aka Carisjames) is part of the US Virgin Islands. It is a private island owned by convicted pedophile billionaire Jeffery Epstein. Many powerful politicians and celebrities (cult members) have visited this sick place. It is where they perform satanic rituals, human sacrifice, pedophilia and worst. Beneath the island lies a series of hidden tunnels that Epstein recently demolished (evidence destruction).
    25. European Union: The European Union (EU) will be broken from its chains (like Saudi Arabia). EU was part of the Uranium One supply chain. EU has the most to lose from Iran deal pullout (loss of new market and $$$ if sanctions reinstated). EU leaders only care about the cash flow, not the safety of their people.
    26. Exec Order: A rule or order issued by the President to an executive branch of the government and having the full force of law. POTUS is using EOs to help drain the swamp, eliminate corruption world-wide, and safeguard our country.
    27. FBI / DOJ: Top leadership at the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Department of Justice (DOJ) were compromised under the Obama administration. These agencies were used as political weapons against the Trump campaign as early as 2015. The details of the corruption are slowly surfacing such as the abuse of the FISA warrant apps, the surveillance and unmasking of Trump’s team, the planting of spies and assets into the campaign, the political bias of FBI brass and agents against Trump.
    28. False Flag: False flag (FF) is an action carried out by a person or group, that is blamed on someone else to achieve a subversive goal. False flags pose as imminent threats to the security of a populace, when in fact they’re usually committed by that group’s own government — a favorite tool of Clowns in America (CIA).
    29. Five Eyes / FVEY: The Five Eyes, often abbreviated as FVEY, is an intelligence alliance comprising Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States. The countries share intel with each other and provide a way to circumvent laws that forbid spying on their own citizens (e.g., UK will share intel with USA on USA citizens).
    30. Foundations / Institutes: Political Foundations and Institutes are a front for pay-to-play schemes. There is wide spread corruption in many of these foundations (e.g, Clinton Foundation, McCain Institute, Pelosi Foundation, more…). This is how career politicians are worth millions of dollars — they get kickbacks from global donors in return for political favors and access.
    31. France: France is one of the countries whose leaders are heavily intertwined with the Iran deal that lifted sanctions, opened a new market to its companies (e..g, Total S.A.), and provided $$$ kickbacks.
    32. GTMO: The Guantanamo Bay detention camp is a United States military prison located within Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, also referred to as Guantánamo or GTMO, which is on the coast of Guantánamo Bay in Cuba. Future home for many Deep State and Cabal/NWO players.
    33. Germany: Germany is one of the countries whose leaders are heavily intertwined with the Iran deal that lifted sanctions, opened a new market to its companies ($4B annually), and provided $$$ kickbacks. Germany’s leader, Angela Merkel, was groomed and positioned by the NWO families.
    34. God: God the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and Earth. Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world. God bless our POTUS, our military, and all patriots worldwide.
    35. Gun Rights: An armed populace is a strong deterrent to tyrannical government and foreign invaders. NWO and D’s had a 16 year plan to enslave/control the USA by destroying the economy, weakening our military, banning the sale of firearms, repealing the 2nd amendment, and much more…
    36. HUMA / Muslim Brotherhood: Harvard University Muslim Alumni (HUMA) and the Muslim Brotherhood (MB). HUMA and Saudi Arabia funded Obama pre-political days. Obama was groomed to be the President of the USA by foreign powers. Under the Obama administration the MB infiltrated the US government. The MB manifesto is the destruction of Western civilization from within. Hillary’s top aide, Huma Abedin, has connections to the MB and is the bridge.
    37. Haiti: After the devastating 2010 earthquake in Haiti that killed hundreds of thousands of people, foreign organizations/entities such as the Clinton Foundation and Red Cross, swooped into to provide relief after raising millions from global donors. Little of the money actually went to rebuilding Haiti, and worse — these foundations facilitated the human trafficking of Haitian children out of the country for nefarious purposes.
    38. Hawaii / DEFCON 1: On January 13, 2018, a false ballistic missile alert was issued via the Emergency Alert System and Commercial Mobile Alert System over television, radio, and cellphones in the U.S. state of Hawaii. Q made reference to this event before it happened: DEFCON 1 Marker (future proves past). POTUS also made an unplanned stop in HI after his Asia trip in 2017 to prevent other vehicles from regaining entry (unsolved).
    39. Hollywood / Stars: Hollywood is an extension of Project Mockingbird (CIA brainwashing / psyop). Hollywood helps shape the D’s narrative along with the mainstream media (MSM). Movies are made to glorify past events and whitewash any wrongdoing. Hollywood is filled with abused/enslaved children who grew up in the system. They thought the SHEEP (general population) would follow the stars.
    40. ISIS: ISIS was formed with direction, support and funding from the Obama administration along with Saudi Arabia and Qatar. ISIS is used as a destabilizing force, similar to MS-13, instilling fear, intimidation, targeted removals/killings, for the purpose of controlling the local population. Obama protected ISIS whereas President Trump has nearly destroyed them in less than a year. The top 5 leaders of ISIS were recently captured in Syria — this same crew had met with Senator John McCain (traitor) on multiple occasions.
    41. Inspector General Report: A series of reports published by the DOJ’s Inspector General — Michael Horowitz. The first released IG report, 500 pages long, covered the HRC emailgate scandal. It revealed the use of private gmail accounts by James Comey (then FBI director) and others. This IG report is the weakest of the set, but opens doors to the Anthony Wiener laptop and crimes against children (Hillary, Clinton Foundation, others). The scope and size of IG’s investigation is the biggest in history. Note that the IG report(s) cannot comment on active criminal cases with empaneled grand juries.
    42. Insurance File: A folder on Anthony Wiener’s laptop named “insurance file” that was seized by NYC Police when he was arrested for sexting a minor. On the laptop they found confidential emails from Hillary Clinton and damning evidence in the insurance file. Two NYC police detectives lost their lives who saw the insurance file.
    43. Internet Bill of Rights: Internet forums and social networks which provide free access to the public are a digital place of assembly, and individuals using such methods for public communication should not be subjected to censorship due to political beliefs or differing ideas. Conservative voices on many large public website platforms are being censored, based solely on a differing opinion. Some of these platforms further employ tracking mechanisms for monitoring an individual’s digital history, which can be used to censor the individual’s public communication through various censorship practices, sometimes without knowledge or awareness. These actions directly violate personal liberty and stand at contrast with the bill of rights.
    44. Iran: The Iran Nuke deal was a scam. It was never about nuclear disarmament nor prevention. It was about lifting sanctions and opening a new untapped market for EU companies; it was about securing a black ops site for the CIA. This is why Obama sealed the Iran deal under a top secret classification and why congress could not view it. Iran obtained uranium via the Uranium One scandal/exchange. Iran obtained billions in funding from Obama admin (hard cash pallets + wire transfers). EU leaders were complicit in this scheme and received kickbacks/bribes. Iran will be FREED from NWO/CIA control just like North Korea has been FREED.
    45. Israel / Mossad: Q has not spent much time on Israel (yet), stating that it will be saved for last. Q confirmed that Israel’s disclosure of Iran’s covert nuclear program is authentic. Furthermore, Q stated that Mossad’s disinformation attacks on Q have failed. This suggests that Mossad, Israel’s intelligence agency, is partnering with the CIA/MSM to coordinate attacks on Q.
    46. JFK/Reagan: Presidents John F Kennedy (JFK), Ronald Reagan, and Donald Trump are all different than the rest (outliers). The election “fix” has been in — no matter which party (D’s or R’s) won. They assassinated JFK, shot Reagan, and undoubtedly tried to do the same to Trump. These Presidents could not be controlled and therefore represented a threat. With President Trump and our mighty military, they are now facing an existential threat like never before. Where we go one, we go all!
    47. Las Vegas: The 2017 Las Vegas shooting occurred on the night of Sunday, October 1, 2017 when a gunman opened fire on a crowd of concertgoers at the Route 91 Harvest music festival on the Las Vegas Strip in Nevada, leaving 58 people dead and 851 injured. Q has suggested that:
      1) The shooter was a spook (CIA agent), a stooge selected for his background (white loner), forced to do the shooting (family held hostage), and then terminated (no evidence)
      2) The “reported” gunfire came from the top floors of the Mandalay Bay Hotel, owned by Saudi Prince Al-Waleed
      3) MS-13 thugs were involved somehow and there was more than one shooter (like JFK assassination)
      4) Survivors who were organizing on social media talking about multiple shooters have been systematically killed off
      5) POTUS was in Las Vegas that night (unmarked plane) for a classified meeting and was LIKELY the primary target (assassination attempt)
      6) Shortly after the Las Vegas shooting marshal law was declared in Saudi Arabia and Prince Al-weed and others were arrested by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman
    48. Loop Capital: A full-service investment bank, brokerage and investment management firm that provides creative capital solutions to clients across the globe. The Chicago based firm rose to prominence during the Obama era as the preferred “pay-to-play” money laundering vehicle used by CEOs and Board of Directors to buy political favors and access. Follow the money and focus on the loudest voices in Washington D.C.
    49. MAGA / WWG1WGA: Make American Great Again (MAGA) is Trump’s campaign slogan that has ignited a movement across the USA to reclaim love of our country and true patriotism. Additionally, Q and possibly POTUS, have come up with new patriotic slogans:
      1) WHERE WE GO ONE, WE GO ALL (WWG1WGA)
      2) NO ONE PERSON IS ABOVE ANOTHER
      3) UNITED WE STAND (World Wide)
      4) WE, THE PEOPLE
      5) Fight for TRUTH
    50. MKUltra: MKUltra is the code name given to a top secret CIA program of mind control experimentation on human subjects. These experiments were sometimes performed on the general population without consent (illegal). CIA informed congress many years ago that the program was discontinued; however the opposite is true, and the program has evolved considerably. Here’s how it works:
      1) CIA selects individuals (pawns) with certain mental conditions / susceptibilities
      2) CIA arranges for “therapy sessions” and the prescription of psychotropic drugs
      3) CIA breaks the mind into a functional/programmable device that can triggered by mobile phone signals
      4) These mind controlled pawns hear voices/demons in their heads that trigger/instruct them to commit horrible acts of violence (e.g., school shootings)
    51. MS13: Mara Salvatrucha, also known as MS13, is an international criminal gang that originated in Los Angeles, California, in the 1980s. MS13 is used by the CIA as a destabilizing force to control a local population through fear, intimidation, murder, rape and torture. The Obama admin practiced “catch & release” with MS13 and Sanctuary Cities are harboring MS13 thugs. POTUS has made it a priority to rid our country of MS13 and stop their entry into country via the wall and immigration reform.
    52. Map/Plan: Q’s intel posts (crumbs), which began in October, 2017, will be considered the biggest “inside approved” intel drop in American and world history. Q’s posts/crumbs have been carefully prepared and sequenced as part of a 3 year plan. Everything in the crumbs has meaning (everything) — word choice, topics emphasized, timing, sentence structure, misspellings, etc. Q’s crumbs combined equate the Map and Plan. The crumbs are intentionally cryptic to throw off bad actors and conceal strategic moves. The news cycle unlocks the map and the crumbs begin to make sense — future (news) proves the past (Q posts). Trust the plan and enjoy the show!
    53. Marines/National Guard: By order of POTUS, the US National Guard has been deployed to protect our borders from the flow of MS-13/illegals, child trafficking, drugs, guns, intel theft and more. Under certain conditions, such as martial law, the National Guard can work in coordination with US Marine Corps.
    54. McLean, VA: McLean, Virginia is a suburb home to many diplomats, businessmen, members of Congress, and high-ranking government officials partially due to its proximity to Washington, D.C. and the Central Intelligence Agency. It is a hub of Deep State activity.
    55. Memo: The FISA & Grassley Memos factually prove the following:
      1) The Obama administration weaponized the INTEL community to ensure D victory + insurance in case Trump won
      2) The FBI/DOJ/DOS knowingly provided false intel to FISA Judges to obtain warrant(s)
      3) The memos demonstrate collusion at highest levels of the US government against Trump
      The memos are just the beginning…
    56. Mexico: Leaders of Mexico are very vocal against Trump. The border between the USA and Mexico represents something very important to them, especially the MX and Long Beach California border (likely child trafficking hot spot).
    57. Military Intelligence (MI) / US Military: The Military Intelligence Corps (MI) is the intelligence branch of the United States Army. Certain laws and supreme court decisions allow POTUS to:
      1) active MI usage over the other 3 letter intel agencies and take over investigations
      2) enables POTUS to use Military and National Guard as a police force
      3) authorizes the president to use military commissions / tribunals for civilian trials
      4) all of which can be sealed under State Secrets
      MI is helping POTUS take down evil and corruption world wide. US Military is the savior of mankind. This is the biggest inside drop Q has ever revealed.
    58. Missiles / Nukes / World Wars: Missile and nuclear weapon technology in North Korea and Iran. Missile launches and false flags attempts in Saudi Arabia/Yemen, Hawaii and Washington. NWO attempts to start a nuclear world war (sum of all fears).
    59. Mockingbird (MSM): Operation Mockingbird is a secret campaign by the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to influence the media. The campaign recruits leading journalists into a network (Apache Group / SecureDrop) to control the daily news cycle and align the narrative to CIA objectives. POTUS frequently attacks the Mainstream Media (MSM) because they are dishonest, corrupt, and the enemy of the American people. CIA uses the MSM as a PSYOP to brainwash the American people; non MSM platforms are cast as conspiracy and/or non-credible. MSM is fake news — not to be trusted.
    60. Money: Follow the money, it’s the key. Look at career politicians with foundations (pay-to-play schemes) who are worth many millions of dollars. Money buys political access and favors. Nobody audits where the money goes (war reparations, climate pacts, foreign aid deals, etc.) The NWO has used money, power and influence over generations to control the world; however, what is money with power? POTUS and US Military represent a dire threat to them.
    61. Nasa/SpaceX: In 2011, Obama made the calculated decision to end NASA’s space shuttle program, which also led to the intentional decline of US space supremacy. Conversely, investments into SpaceX (private space rocket company) increased, and NASA rocket/missile technology was sold/transferred to North Korea (CIA black ops site). Space is critical to our national security and is coming back in a big way. POTUS just announced the formation of a new branch of military called “Space Force”.
    62. No Such Agency (NSA): The National Security Agency (NSA) is responsible for global monitoring, collection, and processing of information and data for foreign intelligence and counterintelligence purposes. NSA has all the information, nothing is deleted, and is helping POTUS and MI drain the swamp, purge the deep state, and combat the Clowns in America (CIA).
    63. North Korea: North Korea (NK) was not run by Kim Jung-un. NK was a CIA black ops site. NK was used by the Cabal/NWO as leverage over other countries and for protection. The NK nuclear threat was real (NK had miniaturization tech in 2004 and ICBM tech in 2009). NK received uranium via the Uranium One scandal. NK received missile/nuke tech from Operation Merlin (Nasa/SpaceX/SAPs) and received funding as part of the Iran deal. NK was to be the war engine to ignite World War III. This was the biggest cover-up in our history and POTUS stopped it ALL. NK is now FREED from CIA control and on the path to peace!
    64. Pakistan: Pakistan was involved in the Uranium One scandal — their exact role is TBD. The Awan Brothers, data thieves and blackmailers who worked for Debby Wasserman Shultz, are connected to Pakistan intel agency. POTUS recently suspended $900MM in security aid to Pakistan. Pakistan was harboring Osama bin Laden and made a $$$ deal for his exchange in 2011.
    65. Parkland School Shooting: Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, was the site of a school shooting on February 14, 2018. Parkland was specifically organized & designed to distract (false flag event to change news cycle). The shooter heard voices in is head (see MKUltra). The Left are using Parkland as another attack on gun rights (2nd amendment) and a rallying cry for the midterm elections.
    66. Pedogate: Pedogate is child trafficking and pedophilia that is rampant among elites in government, Hollywood and elsewhere. It also covers child abductions (Haiti / Red Cross) for satanic rituals and human sacrifice (Epstein Island). The pedo networks are being dismantled by POTUS and allies world wide (3,000+ children saved in Saudi Arabia alone). Adam Schiff’s district in CA is a hot spot for child trafficking in the USA.
    67. Planned Parenthood: Congress and the DOJ have open investigations into Planned Parenthood’s illegal sale of fetal tissue gathered from abortions. Recently, POTUS has made moves to remove federal funding from Planned Parenthood.
    68. Q: Q Clearance Patriot, QAnon, or simply Q is a group of patriots in Military Intelligence / NSA with access to all the information including Top Secret and Secret Restricted Data. Q serves at the pleasure of President Trump and is leading The Storm and Great Awakening worldwide. Q leverages anonymous internet boards (the chans) to divulge the biggest insider approved intel drop in the history of the world. These anonymous boards were selected as the single communication channel to spread the message because they could not be controlled or censored like other social media platforms. Q posts cryptic “crumbs” that hold the key to future events and the unraveling of corruption and evil that is everywhere. These crumbs are fully understood by watching the news cycle and seeing events unfold. Q has made many predictions of future events that are undeniable proofs. Likewise, there is a clear pattern of communication and coordination between Q posts and POTUS tweets. POTUS, Q, and patriotic anons are working together to rid the world of the evil and corruption and it’s working — The Storm is picking up speed as we see: politicians stepping down, CEOs resigning, sealed indictments, child trafficking arrests, house cleaning in FBI/DOJ/DOS, booming US economy, North Korea peace, Saudi Arabia arrests, Iran revolution, and much more…
    69. Red Cross: Red Cross is a corrupt and evil organization that raises funds (billions) for humanitarian causes world wide. Red Cross is a piggy bank for the Cabal/NWO. Red Cross facilitates human trafficking and child smuggling across the globe (Iran, Pakistan, North Korea, Haiti, more…)
    70. Resignations: Since November 2017, there has been a worldwide MASS exodus of corporate CEOs resigning and politicians stepping down or not seeking re-election. This volume of resignations is unprecedented/unstoppable and is because of POTUS. POTUS has all the information on their shady deals/schemes and widespread corruption.
    71. Rothschild: Wealth (over generations) buys power. Power (over generations) buys more wealth/control. More wealth/control buys countries and its people.
      Three families combined (TRI) = NWO.
      - House of Saud (6+++) $4 Trillion+
      - Rothschild (6++) — $2 Trillion+
      - Soros (6+) — $1 Trillion+
      Rothschild are the cult leaders of the NWO and worship satan. They have worldwide control over banks, financial institutions and governments. These people are sick and evil.
    72. Russia: D’s and the MSM are constantly screaming Russia, Russia, Russia for a very specific purpose — Russia has information that would destroy Dem leaders and the party itself (i.e., Uranium One, Iran Deal, North Korea, more…) The real Russian collusion was with Hillary and Obama (e.g., Russia Reset to clear path for Uranium One deal), and in order to hide this knowledge, they are “projecting” their collusion on President Trump. Projecting is the act of falsely accusing your opponent of something you did. Q has suggested that Russia is now helping POTUS defeat the NWO.
    73. Satanic Cult: All that you know to be right is wrong — the ‘cult’ runs the world. Many celebrities, politicians, powerful people, and powerful groups all belong to the same sick cult/club. They worship satan and openly show it with their symbology: Owls & Y Heads, tattoos, jewelry (inverted cross, black rings), left eye marker (Eye of Ra), adorned in gold (like gods). They practice “spirit cooking” and perform child abductions for satanic ritual abuse and sacrifice to moloch/satan in hidden locations (e.g., Epstein Island).
      We pray every single day for God’s guidance and direction as we are truly up against pure evil. The world is fighting back and destroying the cult.
    74. Saudi Arabia: In November, 2017 something extraordinary happened in Saudi Arabia. For the first time in history, one side of the NWO triangle was removed. The House of Saud, a puppet master who was controlling many elected US politicians, had its strings cut. There was a power shift in Saudi Arabia with the rise of Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman, a reformer, who is working with Trump to purge corruption and evil from his country and the middle east. This culminated with the arrest of Al-Waleed bin Talal, a billionaire who had major stakes in US high tech companies.
    75. Secret Service: The US Secret Service (USSS) guards the current president, previous presidents and their families. USSS is also now protecting key members of the NSA as well as Q’s message/platform. The USSS had a nickname for Obama, who they called “Renegade” — a person who deserts and betrays an organization, country, or set of principles.
    76. SecureDrop: SecureDrop is the open-source software platform used by the CIA and MSM to coordinate the daily 4:00AM news cycle talking points and narrative. Two developers/founders of SecureDrop have been eliminated (James Dolan, Aaron Swartz) and Kevin Paulson turned the product over to “Freedom of the Press” — a CIA operation to catch would-be whistleblowers, who’s founder John P Barlow was murdered in 2018 (heart attacks can be deadly).
    77. Shills: Shills are paid trolls or black hats who attempt to distract or argue with anons and “slide” the bread by filling it with nonsense (e.g., flat earth bs, project pelican, etc.) all in attempt throw good anons off course. Shills can be sophisticated losers too, people like James Corsi, who built-up a following covering Q and then attempt to bash Q and usurp the movement. As Q says, “be careful who you follow” — there are people out their trying make a name and a buck (PAYTRIOTS) off of Q.
    78. Social Media / Tech: The age of the MSM is over. Social Media has taken over as the number one source for news. POTUS recognized this fact and used Social Media to bypass the MSM and speak directly to his base. They were not prepared for this and lost control of the narrative… They have since redoubled their efforts to censor and block conservative voices on the Social Media platforms. The current censorship all relates to push for power (mid-term elections). The Social Media companies have engaged in illegal activities (24/7 spying/tracking, mass real-time surveillance, privacy violations) that will crush them. POTUS has issued sealed orders to prevent social media blackouts and to provide stronger oversight. Future bills such as the “Internet Bill of Rights” will 100% regulate the Social Media platforms.
    79. Steel Industry: The Obama administration oversaw the deliberate weakening of the US steel industry and our domestic capacity to produce steel that is crucial to our military and infrastructure. Furthermore, steel sourced from foreign countries for military-grade projects was made inferior by our enemies as a method to weaken our military vehicles. The depths of their TREASON is unimaginable.
    80. Stringer: Stringers are cryptic military commands and orders related to covert operations. Q shares stringers with anons and others who are observing the boards. An example would the Captain Green Stringer which described the failed military operation to capture Rothschild targets.
    81. Strzok-Page Texts: Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, two disgraced former FBI/DOJ members on Special Counsel Mueller’s team, exchanged some 50,000 text messages throughout the presidential election and first year of the Trump administration, many of them with anti-Trump sentiments including a possible assassination attempt on POTUS and his family members.
    82. Syria: Iran created a classified ‘satellite’ nuclear facility in Northern Syria. This was part of the Iran deal — EU got access to a new market for it’s companies (plus $$$) and the CIA got a new black ops site that they could use to threaten the world and start a war. Uranium from the Uranium One scandal mades it way from US to Russia to Syria. Recent US missile strikes in Syria likely destroyed the satellite nuclear facility.
    83. Tarmac: The infamous meeting between Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch on a tarmac in Phoenix, Arizona during the height of the Hillary Clinton emailgate scandal. The conversation was captured by the NSA. Lynch was promised a supreme court seat in return for giving HRC a pass.
    84. UK / SIS / Royals: The UK Secret Intelligence Service, M16, is part of the Five Eyes intel sharing agreement, and facilitated the spying on Donald Trump’s campaign using the pushed Russian decoy meetings. The Brits provided the raw intel and dossier. M16 is now cooperating with POTUS and undergoing house cleaning. Theresa May, a Cabal/NWO player, has been neutralized. The Queen and monarchs are seeking shelter. Q dropped crumbs on Princess Diana’s death/murder.
    85. Uranium One: The Uranium One (U1) deal/scandal will go down as the biggest coverup in US history. Obama’s Russian reset provided the clearance and pathway to complete the U1 deal. The U1 deal supplied Iran/Syria and NK with the raw uranium to produce nukes while also reducing US capacity. A U1 FBI informant has revealed these details to congress.

    ICE: The Department of Terror?


    Let’s see the "cruel and inhuman" folks at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) and Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) in action. Shall we?

    In this photo we see the Border Patrol saving a little girl stranded along the Rio Grande.

    The Border Patrol arrested 4 in this human smuggling attempt.

    Here’s the Border Patrol working with its partners in San Diego to stop human smuggling by ship.

    The cruelty!

    Smugglers put 29 people in the back of a tractor-trailer. The Border Patrol rescued them all.

    Border Patrol agents rescue a man who got stuck in a storm drainage tunnel as smugglers tried to take him into the country in this dangerous way. (2010)

    Locking 3 children in a hot car trunk is something smugglers have zero problem doing. The Border Patrol in Tucson, AZ rescued these kids.

    This is the inside of a processing center for people who have tried to cross illegally. It’s in McAllen, TX. (Photo taken June 17, 2018.)

    Not dramatic enough for the media, I know.

    Here’s a smiling kid at the processing facility.

    Smiling!

    No way.

    Mostly it looks like they sit around and wait.

    Here’s the gigantic inhumane border wall project.

    Border Patrol agents’ families participate in a remembrance ceremony for those who have died in the line of their incredibly “cruel and inhuman” duties, which include rescuing people whose destiny is to be pimped out for meager cash.

    The grieving families wait for the names of their loved ones to be called.

    They defended our country, and paid the ultimate price.

    Secretary Zinke visits with Native American leaders (Tohono O’odham) during a tour of the U.S./Mexico border.

    See the contempt…

    The racism…

    The hate…

    …in that handshake.

    Look at this vast and totally porous border. How many more patriots have to die, how many more smuggling victims have to die, before we finally “build that wall?”

    Who are the cruel ones who want to keep it open so that smugglers can still operate?

    President Trump discusses border wall prototypes.

    It IS happening, folks.

    With God’s help.

    Yep, the “terrorists” are at it again as 271 people arrested by ICE in March 2018 get their fingerprints taken.

    These "residents" of Florida, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands threatened public safety and were in violation of immigration laws.

    Yes, ICE is to blame!

    Another “fascist” ICE agent! Protecting the SuperBowl!

    What a "tyrant" our President is, unleashing these folks on the unsuspecting…terrorists who want to cause harm to innocent Americans attending a national sporting event.

    Horrible!

    And this! Guns!

    Preparing to put your life on the line to protect your fellow Americans from evil thug murderers!

    So “awful!”

    Just as an aside the “thugs” at ICE have an entire center dedicated to protecting American products from brand counterfeiters, who unfairly steal money (in the form of intellectual property) from others and who also put people’s lives at risk with inferior product.

    Also a fun fact, ICE has a “Cyber Crimes Center” and their experts can get all your stuff off the hard drives you might try to destroy.

    Gee, I wonder who would try to dismantle ICE, knowing that?

    Gangs hurt immigrants, by terrorizing them in school till they join; sex trafficking teens; and shaking down all sorts of people for protection money.

    Why would you want to dismantle ICE — the agency that stops gangs? Unless you maybe…support gangs?

    And now we get to the heart of it. What is the one dedicated function of ICE that criminal syndicates, operating in cities large and small, dislike?

    BINGO!

    CHILD SEX TRAFFICKING!!!

    “Our Special Agents proactively identify cross-border criminal trafficking organizations,” ICE says. Also this:
    “Every day, (ICE Homeland Security Investigations) HSI agents around the globe work to uncover, dismantle and disrupt human trafficking. They come face to face with the worst of humanity — traffickers profiting off the forced labor and commercial sex of their victims through the use of physical and sexual abuse, threats of harm and deportation, false promises, economic and psychological manipulation, and cruelty.”
    Now you know the truth about why certain people say they want to dismantle this agency.

    Hint: It has absolutely nothing to do with caring about children.

    God Is Sending You A Notification

    You signed up for a mission in this life, and when you were born an angel touched a spot under your nose and over your lip that left an indentation. That spot indicates your forgetting your mission altogether, making it possible for you to have the free will (all important) to discover it.

    But God knows it's hard to chase The Meaning Of Life when life is full of unexpected twists and turns and you're working so hard and you're tired.

    So you encounter people, situations, opportunities, and so on over the course of your life that seem "coincidental" but they're really notifications from God about your mission.

    When you download an app, the whole thing is the notifications, right? Sure we all get too many of them, but they're also like brain candy, setting off a little "high" every time we see one. It's just like the old AOL slogan "You've Got Mail!" which was supposed to be exciting as we stopped whatever it was that we were doing to check out what important message we'd received.

    There was a time in life when I wanted to be famous. Not anymore. But for a long time my husband would say to me: "Did you get the call?" Meaning he knew I was waiting for some kind of call, the call from Hollywood, the call from a producer that I imagined would lift me out of my ordinary life and into the "wonderland" of TV. (Knowing what I know now, thank you HaShem for saving me!!!)

    In any case, look at how we go crazy every time we get a notification. We stop what we're doing right away and check the phone. Usually it's absolutely nothing, more likely junk mail, or total nonsense that we get annoyed by. What a waste of time. But oh how our brain gets a shot of dopamine from notifications!

    Yet God's notifications are coming all the time, and we don't even see them. If we do see them, often we do the best we can to ignore them. "What does God want, I'm busy living life!"

    But He loves you and has a plan for you. He's trying to get your attention. Every single thing that happens -- every single microscopic moment of your life -- is God interacting with you, personally. Your neshama (soul) is the app.

    And you can't opt out, no matter how hard you try.

    God's notifications will always come through. It's just a matter of whether you choose to pay attention to them.

    You can't uninstall this app. If you do, the notifications only grow more frequent, and louder.
