    When Bloomberg News’s Reporting on China Was Challenged, Bloomberg Tried to Ruin Me for Speaking Out

    “I AM ONE of the many women Mike Bloomberg’s company tried to silence through nondisclosure agreements. The funny thing is, I never even worked for Bloomberg.

    “But what about all the evidence that is in her head?” said the outsized man on the video screen. When Bloomberg’s lawyer in New York uttered those words, I suddenly pictured him holding a giant vacuum cleaner, trying to suck all the memories out of my brain.

    I might even have had to pay Bloomberg’s legal bills. The thought of Bloomberg possibly ruining our family financially if I didn’t give in to their threats made me sick, but I was also infuriated that they had kept us in harm’s way after we received threats, forbidden me from speaking publicly about the death threats we received in Beijing, and now were trying to take away my freedom of speech forever.

    It was only when I hired Snowden’s lawyers in Hong Kong — Albert Ho and Jonathan Man offered me a low rate because it was a “good cause” — that Bloomberg finally backed off.”

    I have never written about my experience before. I am speaking out now because unlike so many other women, I am not bound by a nondisclosure agreement.”


    These are some of the same tactics Harvey Weinstein used to silence his victims.

    Id like to preface this by stating it is all purely speculation, driven by simple curiosity in the hope that some here who are more politically savvy and/or versed in the law, can lend perspective or even a tidbit of information.

    I am an engineer by trade and have been programmed to look at problems from every angle, even if the view is uncomfortable or the outcome unlikely. This background is what prompted me to finally post after two weeks of this tumbling around in my mind. Id like to put it to rest one way or another, as much as it is possible.

    I have never been to Q’s site. I know very little about Q except some information Ive gathered here and seeing the memes.

    There has recently been two articles published by ‘American Thinker” on the subject. Ive been able to see some of the posts. All very cryptic. Some seems to be hope porn, some gibberish and some inflammatory. None of it detailed.

    Ive seen the theories that this is some sort of new military type information warfare. I have seen Q dismissed as nonsense by those on the left and the right. I have also seen PDJT tweets that seem to acknowledge Q and Q posters.

    Keith Schiller has been the head of Mr. Trumps security since at least 2000. A former NYC police officer, Mr. Schiller is a very capable and loyal man. When Mr. Trump became President Trump, Keith Schiller joined the White House staff as Deputy Assistant to President Trump and concurrently served as Director of Oval Office Operations. He was the only one of Mr. Trumps personal bodyguard to stay on after President Trump received SS protection.

    Keith Schiller personally hand delivered Comeys pink slip. This fact and that of his longtime service, lead me to believe he is much more than just a bodyguard to President Trump. He is a trusted confidante.

    On September 20, 2017, Keith Schiller left the White House. There were rumors of why but there is no concrete declaration that I can find through open source. The main rumors were that he was unhappy with taking a paycut from 294k to 165k and the restriction of access to President Trump afforded him by Gen. Kelly.

    Im not buying either excuse. The history between Trump and Schiller does not lend itself to these conclusions.

    On October 28, 2017, about a month after Schiller left the White House, the first Q drop was sent out. I have no clue what it said and Im not inclined to research it.

    It got me thinking though. Could Keith Schiller be Q? Rex, another blogger with mixed reviews, writing at Quodverum, a site with mixed reviews, has called Schiller the head of PDJT Praetorian Guard.

    We’ve seen PDJTs willingness to tap those outside the government to help him in his quest to drain the swamp. Rudy is the face of these efforts. And who can blame a President that is being attacked from all sides by treasonous filth that permeates the executive branch in which he is supposed to rely.

    We can reasonably assume there are others in the Rudy mold who hide behind the cloak of shadow, working daily to expose the villainy. Could Keith Schiller be such a man? Could he be using 4chan in much the same way PDJT uses twitter? Is he President Trumps secret weapon?

    Or am I absolutely nuts, flying off the reservation?


    • Jimmy R says:

      You’re not nuts, but what you say is purely speculative. For my own part, I speculate that Q is a Soros-funded disinformation campaign because the message is that we should relax, enjoy the show and trust the plan, in other words do nothing to stop the coup d’etat as it progresses.

        Other Treepers need to step up here. I seem to remember it coming out that “Q” was actually 2 men and a woman. I thought Sundance took the time to expose this? Anyhow, I saw some of the “Q” material and came to this conclusion: I don’t have the time or inclination to deal with folks who refuse to just speak plainly. What … like folks on the left couldn’t decode what “Q” was disclosing? Spending hours to decipher what I could just read in 10 minutes from someone like Rudy or Sundance seemed almost like a plan to keep folks in the dark. Maybe Sundance isn’t glamorous enough for some folks? I haven’t run across a better source than the Treehouse.

      “I have never been to Q’s site. I know very little about Q except some information Ive gathered here and seeing the memes.”
      Yet you post a comment with wild speculation of who it may be.

      1) “Q” does not have a “site”. He/they post “drops” on 8kun website, owned by Jim Watkins. 8kun is the successor website to 8chan. From the website:
      “8kun is an imageboard running OpenIB. 8kun consists of many different boards, most of which are run by independent Board Owners unrelated to the 8kun administration.”
      2) Q drops and POTUS tweets have proven to be at times seconds apart, in both directions. What are the odds of that?
      3) Q is 1000% pro-Trump. Some ‘drops’ are misdirection and admitted misinformation.

      I realize Sundance is very adverse to anything Q-related. That is his prerogative and I respect that. But a response to your comment was necessary.

      If John Kerry was there this was sanctioned by Barrack Obama’s shadow cabinet foundation, which pays Kerry’s bills.

      By the way, in my professional life there were some very stiff reporting requirements, per import and export laws, regarding contacts with;
      -Foreign nationals on US soil or foreign venue.
      -Foreign or US nationals who even worked for the same company.
      -US Nationals representing a foreign entity on US or foreign soil.
      -Contacts by electronic, digital, written, spoken, smoke signals et al.
      We had 48 hours to file our reports upon return to US home base and had to report planned contacts, with itineraries, before we left.

      Do these congressional critters have similar legal obligations, especially since Iran is a publicly stated belligerent intent on harming the US??

      Also, since Iran is a client of Kerry’s any contacts with Kerry need to be reported and Kerry should not be allowed to freely move around any US Government nor commercial facility unescorted. Just sayin’ …

      Has Kerry and the Obama shadow organization filed their FARA documents?

    .”Under Obama, joblessness soared into double digits; under Obama, America was told to get used to the dismal national growth — that it was the new normal. Under Obama, regulatory costs soared, the free market shuddered, the business world lost complete confidence and left the United States, consumers stopped buying.

    Obama is jealous because he failed, where Trump succeeded.

    What’s more — Democrats are panicking because they’re headed into November with no candidate to speak of, and a booming economy. So they’re relying on has-beens like Obama to come forward to chip away at the truths about today’s fine economy.”

    But that attack isn’t working.

    PDJT Press conference today.

    PDJT gives a direct hint;

    I chose not to be involved (DOJ/FBI). I’m allowed to be totally involved. I’m actually the chief law enforcement officer of the country. But I chose not to be involved, I could be involved if I wanted to be.
    (Maybe not exact words)

    Historically P/T stated; if he needed to get involved with FBI/DOJ, he would.

    P/T is telling Barr; follow normal investigative/prosecutorial policies and procedures, follow the evidence were ever it leads and prosecute. We see the evidence and there is enough evidence according to policies and procedures to open up investigations. We see enough evidence that appear to be way beyond a reasonable doubt.

    Barr is being told; get the job done or I will (Micro) manage the FBI/DOJ directly. P/T bound duty.

    Note: When P/T interviewed Barr for the position of A/G, P/T surely stated the A/G will follow proper investigative/prosecutorial policies and procedures and prosecute, no matter where the evidence leads. Why? Because it is the P/T duty and because the evidence has already been seen by the President and the People.

    Again, P/T will micro-manage the FBI/DOJ is our insurance policy.

    P/T is 100% responsible and will implement Justice.

    Take a look at James Boasberg put into place by Chief Justice John Roberts. Notice his relationships with the CIA. And, why we are on the subject look at David Kris who was put into place by James Boasberg and his close relationship with the CIA, too.

    Rather, they claim, he was pushed to his death by CIA personnel, after he raised strong objections against the testing of chemical and biological substances on non-consenting human subjects by the Agency’s Technical Services Staff. But US District Judge James Boasberg ruled that, although the CIA had yet to come clean on the controversial history of MKULTRA, the lawsuit by Dr. Olson’s family had been “filed too late”; he added in his ruling that an earlier settlement between the dead scientist’s family and the US government effectively barred the possibility of a new lawsuit.

    James Boasberg Born: James Emanuel Boasberg … Boasberg thwarted an attempt to force the release of the US Senate report on the CIA’s torture program.

Not a chance that if it passes that President Trump will sign it. Sad thing here is that mike pence has thrown his support behind it too. so if true Shame on him this is a loser bill and go against all that President Trump is trying to do..

    Graham is up for reelection and more than once he has shown that he is nothing but a back stabbing like man who has no moral values.. He told the DOD today they better not try to bring home troops from Afganistan because the congress wont allow it..

    Post New Article
    Let’s All Thank President John Roberts
    for Outing the Fake ‘Whistleblower’
    Breitbart Politics, by John Nolte

    We all owe Chief Justice John Roberts a big thank you for confirming the name of the phony, Deep State whistleblower who launched this stupid impeachment hoax. Eric Ciaramella. Eric Ciaramella. Eric Ciaramella. Eric Ciaramella, a CIA analyst and raging partisan who falsely accused President Trump of impeachable crimes, who has a history of working with former Vice President Joe Biden, and who might have had his own agenda in wanting Biden’s corruption in Ukraine covered up… Yep, that’s him. After much speculation that Ciaramella is the guy, Roberts confirmed it Thursday through his unconstitutional act of commission. Justice Cuck refused to read an impeachment question submitted by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY).



  39. “Ciaramella … equals ‘whistleblower?'”

    As for myself, I prefer instead to trust in “Occam’s Razor.” Did Adam Schiff – who, as we already know, thought nothing of reading a pure-fabrication before his own(!) committee – really require “an EXTERNAL source of Falsehood?”

    “Occam says ‘not.'” I suspect that Schiff was, in fact, “the original and only liar.” (I believe that he made his outrageous statement because at the time he believed that the actual transcript could be replaced by the forgery that he was then reading.) Given that he very-carefully prevented “the identity of his (sic …) ‘actual source'” from being revealed, “Occam concludes” that “it is ‘sufficiently likely'” that said source never actually existed at all.

    “Entities should not be multiplied without necessity.”
