Owner of 8chan Says the Manifesto Was NOT Uploaded By the El Paso Walmart Shooter

The owner of the anonymous message board 8Chan, Jim Watkins, has unequivocally stated that the manifesto which was said to have been posted by the El Paso Walmart shooter on his website was not actually posted by the killer.

Just moments before the deadly shooting in El Paso on Saturday, a sinister four page long manifesto was posted to 8Chan by someone who claimed to be the shooter.

The owner of the anonymous message board 8Chan, Jim Watkins, has unequivocally stated that the manifesto which was said to have been posted by the El Paso Walmart shooter on his website was not actually posted by the killer.

Just moments before the deadly shooting in El Paso on Saturday, a sinister four page long manifesto was posted to 8Chan by someone who claimed to be the shooter.

However, Watkins, an Army veteran, asserted that the shooter actually posted on Instagram prior to the attack — and whoever uploaded the manifesto to 8Chan was not the person who committed the heinous act.

“First of all, the El Paso shooter posted on Instagram, not 8Chan. Later, someone uploaded a manifesto. However, that manifesto was not uploaded by the Walmart shooter,” Watkins asserted in his video statement. “I don’t know if he wrote it or not, but it was not uploaded by the murderer. That is clear, and law enforcement was made aware of this before most people had even heard the horrific news.”

Watkins asserted that though his platform is known for being a bastion of free speech, they have never and will never protect illegal speech.

On Sunday, a campaign went viral to get hosting companies to ditch 8Chan over the manifesto turning up there. Cloudflare, a web security company, also announced that they would be dropping 8Chan. Watkins said that the move to target his website’s hosting is political.

There might be some downtime in the next 24-48 hours while we find a solution (that includes our email so timely compliance with law enforcement requests may be affected)”.

Watkins said that they are continuing to work with law enforcement and working to keep his site active.

FBI agent accidentally reveals own 8chan posts; attempts to redirect white supremacist rage against Russia
Posted on 17 June 2019 by @henrykrinkie

Updated August 4, 2019: Added link to “A.C.L.U. Says F.B.I. Funded ‘Army’ To Terrorize Young War Dissidents“

gun-control-experts

The unsealing of an application for a search warrant by the federal government on 8chan’s servers has unintentionally revealed that a federal agent has been trolling the site and attempting to redirect the users’ conspiracy theories against the Russian government instead of the CIA or Mossad.

The legal case stems from the April 27th shooting at a California synagogue by white supremacist and 8chan user John Earnest. The day of the shooting, Earnest is believed to have posted to 8chan a link to an anti-Semitic Pastebin manifesto and a not-so-cryptic suggestion that he was about to commit a murderous act of violence to back up his beliefs. In the accompanying affidavit to the search warrant application, FBI Special Agent Michael J. Rod requests the “IP address and metadata information about Earnest’s original posting and the postings of all of the individuals who responded to the subject posting and/or commented about it. Additionally, agents seek information about any other posting coming from the IP address used by Earnest to post the subject posting.”
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poway_synagogue_shooting

In Appendix 1, Rod attaches a serious of screen caps from an 8chan thread that took place the day of the synagogue attack (it is not ultimately clear that Earnest took part in this thread). What is notable is that next to the “Anonymous” user label on some of the posts is a “(You)” marking:

you
you
you2
you2
you3
you3

As it turns out, this text is to let the user know that they are looking at their own posts! This means that Special Agent Rod inadvertently exposed himself as 8chan user ID “8f4812” by including these screenshots as his supporting exhibit. As it turns out, a more complete version of this thread was saved on archive.is before it was deleted. By using Ctrl+F on the page and inputting “8f4812”, you can look at all the posts made by the FBI in this thread.

Guys. Read my posts. I believe that the ahooter did post on here but there is also more. Ive been here all day. There are at least two others that are posting in a bot, shilllike fashion to promote this. This theead never would have made the first page, where I found it this morning.
think there is outside involvement. Likely Russian.
In the posts not attributed the man himself, these two not only hyped this thread in an awkward way, they continued an odd pattern of posts to keep this thread alive. Look at the parallel language and style. pol does not talk like that.
Look at the memes chosen in these posts. Not even a fucking clown.
While I believe John may have been motivated by hia own beliefs and reasons, I believe that there are other forces at work here that may have provoked him.
The original link leads to a Tarrants Lads group In russian.
He may have been rightfully upset with the way the world is, but he may have been manipulated into this by something that is not.
I’d blame Mossad, the CIA and FBI too, but this time I am not so sure. We know all three of them can meme because we are shilled all day long by them.
He chose a crappy pistol. Anyone would have planned a litte more thoroughly. If BT is a hero to him as he describes, he would have learned from this mistakes, or at a minimun made an effort to emulate him and do the same. To walk in there completey unprepared with a single pistol sends off even more red flags,
This is very unusual. This is not the typical (((conspiracy))) and I am worried. I dont believe this is the end of this.
I hope some one else takes it upon themselves to investigate what I posted above as well.

In another series of replies the fed poster follows up on the Blame Russia theme:

This was posted by one of the shills that
knew of the shooting prior. Notice screen shot is at 20:00. That correlates with ukraine and western russia if you do the math

Seriosuly, one of you has to dig on this. Please review this thread. There is some russian/ukranian involvement.

At one point, another user accuses the fed of being Mossad:

extremely fake. who believes this shit? sloppy job mossad

The fed replies:

No. Not mossad. Stop attacking the board and sliding this thread. Sloppy job putin. Dick

The other user:

suck my ball

Fed:

Its balls. Let putin know your psyop worked, but you fucked it up with your shit english.

I presume you were chosen because you said you could talk, speak, and type “like american?”

Now, I don’t think for one second that any 8chan posters were convinced by this FBI agent to be more suspicious of potential Russian black ops. At the same time, what the hell was this fed thinking? It certainly looks like he is attempting, however half-assedly, to get the white supremacists that inhabit 8chan’s /pol/ forum to start directing their rage and conspiracism at Russia for a change.

This, of course, isn’t the first time informants have been caught or revealed to be inflaming or attempting to inflame extremists. In 2015, an FBI agent texted ISIS sympathizer Elton Simpson advising him to “tear up Texas.” A couple of days later Simpson attempted to shoot up a Draw Muhammed event in Garland.

But more importantly, there is a long history of collaboration between various US security apparatuses and private right-wing groups. The case of Howard Berry Godfrey and the Secret Army Organization (SAO) is instructive. https://lorenzoae.wordpress.com/2018/09/08/a-brief-history-of-american-vigilantism/
https://sites.google.com/site/cointelprodocs/the-use-of-informants-in-fbi-intelligence-investigations#b221
According to the Church Committee, Godfrey was a member of the “right-wing paramilitary” SAO and engaged in numerous acts of violence and sabotage against left-wing targets at the same time he was a paid FBI informant (bolding mine):

Godfrey and the FBI entered into a relationship in 1967 by which Godfrey would provide the Bureau information. This relationship was formalized in August of 1967 when Godfrey was officially “approved” by the FBI’s Washington Headquarters as an informant. […] Godfrey’s relationship with the FBI lasted over five years, terminating in November of 1972. Godfrey was paid varying amounts from 1967 through 1970 when he began to receive $250 per month plus up to $100 per month in expenses. He continued at that level until his termination. […] Examples of the types of actions Godfrey and/or the Secret Army were involved in include firebombing, smashing windows, placing stickers bearing SAO or Minutemen symbols on cars and buildings, propelling lug nuts through windows with sling shots, and breaking and entering. […] The SAO’s actions escalated to a level of violence and destruction where Godfrey’s name had to be revealed as an FBI informant. Two events precipitated this. The first was the shooting of Paula Tharp, who was in the residence of the San Diego State University professor Peter Bohmer. Briefly, while Godfrey and an SAO associate were “on a surveillance” of Bohmer’s residence (instituted by Godfrey), the associate, according to Godfrey, picked up a gun Godfrey had under the seat of his car and fired shots into the Bohmer house, one of which struck Ms. Tharp. [231] Previously the SAO and Godfrey had singled out Professor Bohmer in their literature for special attention:

For any of our readers who may care to look up Red Scum, and say hello, here is some information that may help. His address is 5155 Muir, Ocean Beach, telephone number is 222-7243, he drives a dark blue 1968 VW Sedam, California licence DKY 147. Just to make sure you talk to the right guy here is his description: he has dark brown shoulder length hair, green eyes, weight is about 160 lbs. and he is 5’10” tall. Now in case any of you don’t believe in hitting people who wear glasses, to be fair I guess we will have to tell you he wears contact lences. [sic]

The significant factor for the Committee’s analysis of FBI informants is that even this shooting incident did not immediately terminate Godfrey as an informant. Rather the FBI records show that Godfrey remained on the Bureau payroll until November, 1972. And, it was not until the second major act of destruction that Godfrey was “surfaced” as an informant.

The second major act of destruction which occurred was the bombing of the Guild theatre in San Diego. According to Godfrey, the bombing was perpetrated by his subordinate in the SAO, one William Yakopec. Godfrey participated in the SAO sale of some explosives to Yakopec. Yet, he promptly notified the FBI of Yakopec’s alleged involvement in the Guild Theatre bombing. Yakopec, who maintains his innocence, was subsequently indicted and convicted of the bombing offenses in the local courts of San Diego.

Mr. Hoover, for his part, personally approved some ex-Nazis as informants and dismissed accusations of their wartime atrocities as Soviet propaganda.

Treason? Is Former Secretary Of State John Kerry Advising Iran Against US & Trump On Current Hostilities In The Straits Of Hormuz?

Treason? Is Former Secretary Of State John Kerry Advising Iran Against US & Trump On Current Hostilities In The Straits Of Hormuz? [Opinion]

Treason? Is Former Secretary of State John Kerry Advising Iran Against US & Trump On Current Hostilities in the Straits of Hormuz? [Opinion]

Remember back to last year. On multiple occasions it could be said that Obama’s former Secretary of State, John Kerry was “colluding” (meeting) with the world’s leading funder of state-sponsored terrorism, Iran.

Democrats have spent three years expressing outrage over claims of collusion with a foreign power to undermine our democracy.

Not so much when its a member of the Big Club.

In May of 2018, Kerry was outed for engaging in multiple secret meetings with Iran’s foreign minister to strategize over how to undermine President Trump’s plans to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal.

By mid-September, Kerry blatantly admitted he was serving as an agent for a hostile foreign power:
Former Secretary of State John Kerry admitted Wednesday that he’s met with top Iranian officials in hopes of salvaging the scrapped nuclear deal — as he slammed the Trump administration for trying to further “isolate” Iran.

The one-time presidential candidate said he’s sat down with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif “three or four times” in places including Norway and Munich since leaving office last year.

As evidence of these ongoing meetings mounted, it became clear that Kerry was intent on undermining President Trump’s policies with regard to Iran.

Remember too, Obama’s plan for a strategic alliance with Iran throughout the Middle East and North Africa that had been in the works since he was candidate Obama.

For leftists, the struggle never ends.

No former president had ever assembled an army of more than 30,000 agitators to fight his successor at every turn of their presidency. Until Obama did. And no president remained in Washington to cast a shadow over his successor. Until Obama.

Now consider Iran’s recent aggression towards Western interests in the Straits of Hormuz.

Here’s Secretary of State Mike Pompeo expressing his anger towards Kerry’s meddling with Iran in September of 2018:

In May of this year Trump told reporters at the White House that Kerry’s actions were “a violation of the Logan Act and frankly he should be prosecuted on that, but my people don’t want to do anything on that.”

Has the reluctance to prosecute Kerry emboldened him?

All of this raises the likelihood of a direct connection between former President Obama and former Secretary of State Kerry and the current spate of Iranian hostilities.

Keep in mind that Deep State overlords consider Donald Trump an existential threat. Most of us would like to know what he’s a threat to aside from preventing the further diminishment of America and the continued exfiltration of the wealth of America’s workers.

Still, Deep State approved Joe Biden was the most recent figure to invoke the “existential threat’ label on Trump

Biden, aka the dumbest man in Washington, is only where he’s at right now because he aligns with both the Never Trump neocons and the Obama/Kerry wing of the same globalist cabal, all of whom are united in wanting to remove Trump.

President Trump has been consistent about the folly of past Mid-East wars for more than three decades:
TRUMP-NEWSPAPER-AD-WHY-ARE-WE-DEFENDING-THE-GULF-OF-HORMUZ-1

Does the Obama/Kerry/Iran alignment view this as Trump’s Achilles heel? Forcing Trump’s hand towards war in the Middle East would likely be one strategy they’d employ to damage his chances of being re-elected in 2020.

Predictably, the media wants to investigate Trump for the fifth time.

From Before Its News, Check Out the Super Bowl “Security”!

I wonder if Super Bowl Goers Are Terrorists Too? Or Are They Just Showing Off That the US Is Now a Police State?

See http://beforeitsnews.com/alternative/2015/02/police-state-secret-service-black-hawk-helicopters-x-ray-scanners-norad-at-super-bowl-xlix-212015-video-3101496.html?utm_term=http%3A%2F%2Fb4in.info%2Ffk5I&utm_medium=verticalresponse&utm_campaign=&utm_content=beforeit39snews-verticalresponse&utm_source=direct-b4in.info

Black Hawk helicopters and truck-sized X-ray machines that are typically deployed along the U.S.-Mexico border have been brought to the Super Bowl venue to assist with the security effort.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection showed off the technology Monday as it helps with Super Bowl security.

Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske was on hand for a demonstration of the agency’s Black Hawks and large mobile X-ray machines that are used to detect contraband and explosives. The helicopters and X-ray machines are from Tucson and Nogales, some of the busiest spots in the nation for the smuggling of drugs and immigrants.

Kerlikowske said Arizona’s border with Mexico still has adequate security while some equipment is used in Glendale for the Super Bowl.

He said it’s not just the technology that will help keep the big game safe, but the expertise behind it.

“The real key about this equipment is the people who operate them,” Kerlikowske said.

The CBP is also deploying about 100 officers who will assist other federal and local law enforcement agencies.

The X-ray machines are mobile and the size of a large truck.

They slowly pan outside a semi-truck while operators look for anomalies. The X-ray machines are in heavy use at the Mariposa Port of Entry in Nogales, one of the busiest ports of entry for commerce in the country.

Within a few minutes, the X-ray machines will have scanned an entire semi-trailer, looking for contraband and explosives.

The CBP also will use its Tucson-based helicopters and Black Hawks to monitor the air during the game, when other aircrafts are not allowed to fly nearby. The Black Hawks are used by the CBP and the Border Patrol for a variety of missions, including for rescuing border crossers who become sick or injured.

Deadly shootings in Paris and arrest of suspects in Belgium, Greece and Germany in the last two weeks heightened fears of more attacks around the world and social media accounts linked to Middle East militant groups have carried a number of threats to attack high-profile U.S. events. falling victim to a scam artist who sold them fake tickets. This year’s Super Bowl will probably have its share of scammers making the rounds, but you don’t have to be a victim.

Local ticket broker, Will Furniss from Ticketloster.com , says he’s seen plenty of fakes. “Most of them are very bad. Most of them are copies and none of the security features are there,”

And those security features are very important. He showed me two real Super Bowl tickets with a face value of $1,900 each. However, they will most likely sell for $5,000. Winner Of Super Bowl 48 Announced! Keeping with tradition, the Ministry of Homeland Security has decreed it will once again be implementing stringent, hyper-vigilant anti-terrorist security measures during this year’s Super Bowl. Since 9/11, the yearly event has devolved into a free-for-all for the DHS and its sub-branch agencies, many of which will be on hand coordinating largely theatrical operations which serve more to acclimate the public to an Orwellian police state than provide any actual security.

National Guardsmen will attend the event for security and “community relations.”Black Hawk attack helicopters and Chinook transports from the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) will do a flyover. It was requested by the NFL, Col. Steve Warren told Politico.

Volgograd in regard to the Sochi Olympics. As you know both of those bombings were targeting mass transit, The Super Bowl’s annual role as a poster child for the police state will continue uninterrupted this year with low flying helicopters, airport-style security and checkpoints throughout New York and New Jersey. As we previously highlighted, at the 2012 Super Bowl in Indianapolis the DHS trained hot dog sellers and other vendors to spot terrorists in a move that received widespread ridicule and condemnation. The following year, TSA screeners were on hand to conduct pat downs of fans entering the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. Enjoy!!!
