Back In April, my producer Ron Patton turned me on to a YouTube video called Out of the Shadows. It was a 77 minute documentary produced by a former stuntman named Mike Smith. The film alleges, among other things, that Hollywood is run by Satanic pedophilia rings that distribute propaganda that promotes the sexuality of children.

The movie came out to minimal fanfare, little publicity, and no credits or disclosures about its funding. I noticed however that after its release there were a few of my listeners that are QAnon followers that became really indignant over the fact that I was not addressing the film and many were actually telling me that this is what Tracy Twyman would have wanted—I was even told by one listener that Tracy came to her in a dream and said why don’t you tell Clyde to finish what I had started.

The truth is, I took offense to the bullying and the accusations and in reality I was nowhere near ready to talk about what I believe led to Tracy’s untimely death.

I am well aware of what is happening and the darker areas of Hollywood—I have been involved with investigating the deep states connection brothels and human tracking out of Southeast Asia and believe me business men of all stripes and political biases have not only made money off the exploitation of children but have enough money to cover their tracks and even make checks out to Presidential candidates that they support.

It is too easy for people to throw accusations around and in the process make it their political agenda and their new religion.

It is yet another form of virtue signaling where people believe that if the Tweet enough or make enough memes they are doing their job of wiping the scourge of pedophilia off of the planet.

Pedophilia is a blight on society but so is making accusations without due process.

Out of the Shadows has now gone viral. It has had millions of views and the reason is primarily because it explores Pizza Gate, government mind control operations as well as Satanism and tying them all together leading the worst of the bunch, Michael Aquino – an occultist, political scientist, and U.S. military intelligence officer who, after leaving Anton LaVey’s Church of Satan, formed his own order, The Temple of Set.

Out of Shadows points out that Aquino “wrote a paper called ‘Mind War’, and ‘Mind War’ was about psychological operations against populations, including the American domestic population, using Satanist techniques and tools.”

Michael Aquino did in fact write the paper mentioned and he was asked to write it by the commander of his unit (and who thus has a co-writing credit on the paper)…General Paul Vallely.

Last Year, Vallely who is now retired appeared on a radio show and was saying that he had information about QAnon and its Origins. He stated that the Q drops were based on information gained from a group of military intelligence specialists.

Here is the quote:

“QAnon uses information that comes out of a group called ‘The Army of Northern Virginia.’ This is a group of military intelligence specialists, of over 800 people that advise the president. The president doesn’t have a lot of confidence in the CIA or even the DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency) as much anymore. So he relies on these real operators – most of them are Special Operations type of people. This is where ‘Q’ picks up and gets some of their information, as I understand it.”

Since he has retired as General he has gone on to work in far-right think tanks and appear as a pundit on right-wing chat shows – and, not surprisingly, is a fan and defender of Donald Trump.

So for many QAnoners, this was a big deal – a guy who is likely plugged into senior military circles, and also the orbit of the Trump administration, saying Q’s information was not only legit, but from intelligence sources connected to the president himself. 

What is not talked about is Valelly ‘s connection to Mind War, Aquino and the Satanic manipulation used in Psy-ops or psychological operations.

Now believe me, guilt by association is something that can mean that you have a smoking gun but it can also mean absolutely nothing –and with enough degrees of separation and amateur conspiracy theorist can make anyone connected in some way the Jeffery Epstein.

With enough degrees of separation—you can connect QAnon with Michael Aquino.

Q drops are a secret way of informing the public that Trump is the literal savior of the world, taking down the evil cabal of Satanist pedophiles that currently run the show – is based on only tidbits of suggestive evidence and links.

What is unfortunate is that suggestive evidence and links, seems to be the standard of proof needed to nail alleged pedophiles that are either on some list – or in Epstein’s black book.

People are acting on scraps and not on concrete evidence. There is no denying that child exploitation is running rampant in Hollywood but let the trials begin and the accused face a jury – meddling in accusation and hearsay is detrimental to those who are suffering because of this type of evil.

And let there be no misunderstanding pedophilia and human trafficking is evil.

QAnon has inspired a lot of things both good and bad but it is hard for members to acknowledge the bad things because there is an even worse thing that they wish to eliminate by whatever means necessary.

But what if that in and of itself is the ruse. What if the whole operation is a distraction and that it is meant to organize a collective that looks bad to the public and with its psychological operative qualities is making people reject all logic in order to be right no matter how out of the lined Q drops go?

The problem is that now Qanon doesn’t need to be true for the consequences to arise. It has become a thinking entity unto itself and now it appears that there are a couple of Christian evangelists that see it as a satanic threat to God.

Since its launching, the QAnon conspiracy theories have reportedly garnered growing support among some evangelical churchgoers and other mostly conservative communities. It has also gained notable supporters such as a Georgia congressional candidate and a U.S. Senate candidate in Oregon. 

QAnon has gotten enough traction to be addressed by Vice President Mike Pence in an interview on CBS’ “CBS This Morning.”

In the interview last Friday, Pence said he does not “know anything about QAnon.”

“And I dismiss it out of hand,” Pence added, decrying the fact that he had to spend time “on a major network to talk about some conspiracy online theory.”

But Q has garnered criticism from multiple Christian leaders, including Southern Baptist Theological Seminary President Albert Mohler Jr.

On an episode of his podcast, “The Briefing,” posted online on Monday, Mohler compared QAnon and conspiracy theories in general to the early church heresy of Gnosticism.

“Gnosticism is the belief that only a few, an elite, a privileged few are able to see, have inside information,” explained Mohler. “The ancient Gnostics believed in one way or another that this particular secret knowledge was the key to salvation or illumination, or whatever would be the promise of this particular information.”

“Christianity has nothing to do with the secret truth. It has everything to do with a public Gospel,” he added. “Christians don’t have secret beliefs we hide from the world. We’re not saved because we have come to some secret knowledge.”

Tyler Huckabee, senior editor at Relevant Magazine, a Christian lifestyle bimonthly, wrote in a piece published earlier this month that QAnon’s claims are “farfetched” and fueled by “confirmation bias.”

Huckabee also considered QAnon “a logical extension of the culture war, providing real plot and vocabulary to the ‘us vs. them’ model that became popular with the rise of the Moral Majority.”

“There are no easy answers about what can be done about QAnon,” he wrote. “But the fact that Christians seem extra open to conspiracies does reveal that something is deeply broken in how people of faith are spreading their worldview.”

“When Christianity is set up as a cultural battle instead of an opportunity to serve, others are seen not as people in need of love but enemies who need to be feared and mistrusted,” Huckabee continued.

Author and pastor Joe Carter denounced QAnon in a column published by The Gospel Coalition in May. 

Carter, the executive pastor at the McLean Bible Church Arlington campus in Virginia, labeled QAnon a “political cult” and “satanic movement” that “poses a threat to the global church.”

He quoted Scripture from the Book of John:

In Chapter 13:15 and 16 it says “Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.”

Carter concludes that “The QAnon movement often traffics in lies, which Jesus says are associated with Satan. The QAnon movement repeatedly sides with demonically inspired falsehoods that divide professed Christians from faithful believers,”

Carter called on Christians to “work to guard those who would fall for such deceptions” and to “plead” with QAnon supporters within the church “to return to the faith.”

“It is neither too early nor too late for Christians to launch a counterattack on the demonic influence of QAnon,” he concluded. Last week, President Trump said that he does not know much about the QAnon conspiracy theory but understands that its supporters like him and “love America.”

While the FBI labeled QAnon a domestic terror threat last year, the Department of Homeland Security Acting Secretary Chad Wolf said in an interview this week that QAnon is not a “significant threat.” But he stressed that he doesn’t have any reason to disagree with the FBI’s assessment.

Some Qanon followers are confused because they believe that they are working hard to expose pedophilia and that this is something ordained of God.

There have been many comments that have denounced these pastors saying that their statements are condoning the looting, and riotous behavior in major cities even though their comments have nothing to do with those issues which many see as consequences of what they call political cults like QAnon.

Again what is being seen are emotionally charged arguments that mix issues that have no bearing in comparison and while it appears that the devil can be found under every rock it is time to understand the origins of the things we choose to follow or not follow.

We have relied on faceless and nameless experts to tell us how to live when we should be choosing to live without hollow commitments to things that are hidden in the shadows.

The Gospel Coalition names QAnon as a successful political cult. They postulate that fringe conspiracy theory being produced by someone or something that is not accountable for what they say and do is misleading and certainly is deceptive.

In many ways, the QAnon phenomenon is a revival of the Satanic ritual abuse panic that originated in the United States in the 1980s. At the core of Satanic ritual abuse was the belief that a global network of the wealthy and powerful elite was kidnapping and breeding children for the purposes of pornography, sex trafficking, and Satanic ritual sacrifice. Satanic Ritual Abuse was largely abandoned by the early 1990s because many of the allegations about Satanic Ritual Abuse were unsubstantiated. Promoters of Satanic Ritual abuse like QAnon advocates today were accused of allowing an unsupported theory to distract from and downplay real cases of child sexual abuse.

The long-term effect of Satanic Ritual Abuse was the destruction of families and reputations, and a discrediting of those (such as Christians) who believe in the reality of the demonic.

The anxieties about society that allowed Satanic Ritual Abuse to flourish are the same that underlie the QAnon phenomenon. In his 1993 book, Satanic Panic: The Creation of a Contemporary Legend, Jeffrey S. Victor explained:

“Satanic cult rumors are symptoms of anxieties deeper than fantasy worries about a secret, conspiratorial kidnappers and murderers. These rumors are collaborative messages in metaphorical form, which speak of a moral crisis. That moral crisis, as people perceive it, involves a loss of faith in the moral order of American society, a perception of the rapid decline in traditional moral values. People are saying, in essence, that “our world is falling apart, because all things good and decent are under attack by evil forces beyond our control.”

Now this does not mean that the allegations that QAnon is making are untrue — it just means that perhaps the overreach of some of the followers borders on the histrionic.

However to verify such claims, though, would require fact-based investigation, which can be both timely and expensive. Since most people have neither the ability nor dedication to find the truth of such claims, they resort to the much easier method of merely repeating the unverified claims of an anonymous source.

The argument is that if all of the allegations are true, then why the an anonymity – if Q is as close to Trump as he claims then there would be no problem with him coming forward and making the claims publicly as well as Identifying himself to the public.

QAnon dismisses contradictory evidence that would require abandoning the allegations.

This should be suspicious but apparently it isn’t and the question is why?

As we can now see there are Christian leaders that are now acknowledging what some are afraid to admit and that is it appears that the QAnon movement is less interested in protecting children than they are in making outrageous and slanderous claims against those they perceive as political enemies.

Those who are participating in making allegations do not realize that much of what is being said is misdirection that draws attention away from actual and substantiated cases of child sex trafficking.

Let the guilty be punished and if the targets of Q are participating in child trafficking are caught, then we can put to rest any and all allegations’ that are against QAnon and its followers.

Until then there needs to be some perspective – back in the day John Lennon once said that The Beatles were bigger than Jesus. He stirred all types of controversy but one thing we knew about Lennon was that he actually followed up by saying he knew the difference and that he certainly knew that he was not better or greater than God.

But can we say the same for QAnon?

Some religious figures believe there should be a counter attack to fight what they call a Satanic psychological operation and with a lot of dot connecting you can find Satan under every rock.
