SHADOWLAND—PART 9: QAnon, Crowley Occultists and Other Friends of the Family

IMPORTANT EDITOR’S NOTE: Starting with natural events most people can comprehend but ultimately leading to the supra-natural, this online investigative series highlights just a hint of the groundwork covered in Dr. Thomas Horn’s upcoming expose, Shadowland (FROM DEFENDER PUBLISHING IN MARCH).

PART 1 / PART 2 / PART 3 / PART 4 / PART 5 / PART 6 / PART 7 / PART 8

QAnon is reportedly a very senior military official or group of officers with uppermost military clearance; “Q” clearance, who prefer to remain anonymous (thus QAnon) while detailing a secret scheme by the “deep state” against U.S. President Donald Trump and his followers. “The theory began with an October 2017 post on the anonymous imageboard 4chan [and later 8chan] by someone using the tripcode Q, a presumably American individual that may have later grown to include multiple people, claiming to have access to classified information involving the Trump administration and its opponents in the United States.” Q has accused various liberal Hollywood actors, Democratic politicians, and high-ranking officials of engaging in an international child sex trafficking ring and has claimed that Donald Trump [is] exposing the ring and preventing a coup d’état by Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and George Soros.

According to Travis View, who has written extensively about QAnon for The Washington Post, the heart of the message from the mysterious group is that:

there is a worldwide cabal of Satan-worshiping pedophiles who rule the world, essentially, and they control everything. They control politicians, and they control the media. They control Hollywood, and they cover up their existence, essentially. And they would have continued ruling the world, were it not for the election of President Donald Trump.[i]

Under Trump as its moral crusader, a movement is said to be quietly afoot inside his administration to expose a child-molesting global elite that will eventually result in “The Storm,” a predicted event in which a huge cache of incriminating documents will be unsealed naming thousands of members of these deep state pedophile circles involving high-level politicians (including Britain’s Prince Andrew, Joe Biden, former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, former senator George Mitchell[ii] and numerous others that victims have also named[iii]), clergy, and Hollywood insiders that will eventually be arrested and prosecuted.

QAnon has numerous well-known believers including celebrities like Roseanne Barr and apparently Trump himself (Q claims to be a government insider closely affiliated with Trump) and, at least at times, somebody with security knowledge must actually be behind the operation as “Q” has often been ahead of the media in releasing important intel. This includes Jeffrey Epstein’s arrest and subsequent “suicide.” For example, on July 6, 2019 Jeffrey Epstein was arrested, though a couple days before that over the Independence Day weekend a QAnon message-board prophecy claimed that “a group within the federal government has been conducting a secret investigation into a network of elite pedophiles” and that an arrest was imminent. Q speculated this would happen on the 4th or 5th. He missed it by one day, but the event happened just as predicted and “the feds handed out an indictment over a global underage sex-trafficking ring implicating U.S. presidents, heads of government, top lawyers, world-famous actors, and a member of the English royal family.” The apprehension “of well-connected financier and convicted sex criminal Jeffrey Epstein on one count of sex trafficking and one count of conspiracy to commit sex trafficking went a long way toward fulfilling the QAnon prediction.”[iv]

And then there was the “suicide” of Epstein. Nearly an hour before any news outlets anywhere received information and reported Jeffrey was dead, an anonymous user posted then-unverified details on 4chan, the message board often used by QAnon before ABC News first tweeted his death.

“[D]ont ask me how I know, but Epstein died an hour ago from hanging, cardiac arrest. Screencap this,’ read the post, which was published at 8:16 a.m. alongside an image of Pepe, the green frog that has become a mascot for right-wing internet trolls.

“That message was posted 38 minutes before the first tweet about Epstein’s death from Aaron Katersky, an ABC News reporter, at 8:54 a.m. Five minutes later, the main ABC News account tweeted an article about Epstein’s death.”

These two examples (there are plenty more oracular prognostications from QAnon) do seem to indicate that at least at times, whoever is actually behind QAnon and their related message boards include individuals with access to genuine intel who often disseminate classified information—sources of data hinting at persons inside U.S. government agencies that itch to leak confidential material regarding what it is Swamp creatures in DC are desperate to keep hidden.

According to The Washington Post[v] and New York Times[vi], whoever is pulling QAnon’s strings were also behind the now infamous Pizzagate.

I was on The Hagmann Report with Steve Quayle a few years ago when for the first time I heard the disturbing allegations involving so-called Pizzagate, which numerous alt-right bloggers and conspiracy sites in 2016-2017 were inferring involved underage children being trafficked for use by powerful political and underworld figures connected to John Podesta (then Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman), his brother Tony, and Bill and Hillary Clinton (and it doesn’t help that the Wikileaks e-mails included one in which John Podesta mentions his close relationship with former Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert, who was sent to prison over sexually abusing boys and whom the judge called “a serial child molester”). Hastert himself, who was released after serving a little over a year of his sentence,[vii] may have been linked to the Wikileaks e-mails where dozens of references to “pizza” (149 e-mails) combined with other foods were viewed as a coded system for pedophiles where words like “hotdog” with “pizza” equaled a little boy, “pasta” with “pizza” meant a girl, cheese was for a “little girl” and so on. The reason a conspiracy grew up around this is partly because of Tony Podesta’s disturbing, some say occult pedophilic art collection, together with the pizza parties he often cohosted with his friend James Alefantis, a man considered to be one of the fifty most powerful people in Washington and the owner of the pizza and music restaurant named Comet Ping Pong. This restaurant is mentioned a dozen or so times in the leaked e-mails and is the dining establishment where Edgar Welch was arrested for taking an AR-15 rifle and handgun December 2016, where he later told police he was there investigating a story about Pizzagate and Hillary Clinton running a child-sex ring out of the eatery.

Some weeks after Welch was detained, CBS46 evening anchor Ben Swann, whose popular “Truth in Media” website and “Reality Check” program had launched an investigation into the Pizzagate story, also framed the location as possibly connected with a child pornography ring being run out of DC. Swann questioned why authorities had been unwilling to conduct a full investigation into the allegations and pointed to music bands that play at Comet singing songs that joke about pedophilia and depicting artwork that matches known “boy-lover” symbols (numerous Podesta e-mails also mention “pizza” and “handkerchiefs,” which are said to be coded language for pedophiles). Swann went on to note that two doors over from Comet Ping Pong is another parlor named Besta Pizza, where their logo matched what a 2007 FBI report depicted as a unique symbol commonly used by pedophiles to express their particular preferences in children—a winding triangle that stands for “boy love.” Following Swann’s report, Besta Pizza modified its logo.

A few days after his first broadcast on the subject, Swann’s Truth in Media site disappeared, as did his Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook accounts.

Did somebody tell him to back off, or was it simply his bosses ordering him to quit the conspiracy-themed reporting?

On the heels of Swann abruptly abandoning the story, Alex Jones was likewise somehow pressured into publicly apologizing for promoting similar commentary involving Pizzagate. Whether he, too, had been threatened by a defamation suit or something else, he read from a prepared statement that to his knowledge, “neither Mr. Alefantis, nor his restaurant Comet Ping Pong, were involved in any human trafficking as was part of the theories about Pizzagate that were being written about in many media outlets and which we commented upon.”[viii]

And then there was Hillary Clinton tweeting about Pizzagate when Michael Flynn was forced to resign, rubbing it in his face and reminding him how his son had once accused her of running a child-sex ring out of Comet Ping Pong. But the 2016 Inspector General’s IG report included notes written down by the former assistant director of the FBI’s Counterintelligence Division, Randy Coleman, involving “Crimes Against Children” that do indeed appear to connect Hillary Clinton, her Foundation, and dishonored former Congressman Anthony Weiner with unexplained events involving underage kids.

“After obtaining Weiner’s devices, the agent processing their contents discovered ‘within hours’ over 300,000 emails, many of them involving communications between Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, and Hillary Clinton.

“The findings were deemed relevant to the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton sending classified information using a private email server.

“From Coleman’s notes, the exact context of the ‘Crime Against Children’ is unclear, as well as the mention of the Clinton Foundation.”[ix]

So regardless of denial, there could be some “there” there and one wonders why this has not been widely reported or investigated other than in the new book Shadowland and brief mention by Laura Ingraham and Sean Hannity on their programs.



Regardless of whether everything surrounding this particular conspiracy was overblown and never had any real substance, a series of police raids since on pedophile circles in the US with ties to international child trading illustrates that such crimes are not only alive and well (including among drag queens who’ve been linked to Satanism and occult practices that are given access to children during Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) at libraries and schools around the U.S.)[x] but often include members of the so-called privileged class who frequently are shielded from prosecution.

You might recall Deborah Jeane Palfrey, the “DC Madam” (as she was dubbed by the media at the time) who operated a phone-in escort agency in Washington, D.C. She insisted her operation was legal but nevertheless was convicted in 2008 of racketeering and money laundering. Her clients included dozens of Washington insiders, lobbyists, FBI and IRS employees, White House, State Department, and Defense Department officials, and more. But like Jeffrey Epstein, she was found hanging in a storage shed outside her mother’s mobile home in Tarpon Springs, Florida,[xi] ending the investigation and, once again, sparing elitists of being exposed or prosecuted.

Even so, sometimes people do go to prison, especially when they’re not rich and connected and/or have been compromised like Epstein was.

A while back, president Trump responded to one such arrest by holding a press conference in which he announced his plan to bring the “full force and weight” of the US government against this “epidemic of human trafficking.”[xii] This caused former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney—who once challenged the elite on the floor of the House about their participation in sex slavery—to warn Trump that if he really did go after pedophiles, he should plan to make arrests of both Republicans and Democrats reaching all the way to the top in Washington DC, something QAnon predicts.[xiii]

Underpinning her allegation was a 2006 Immigration and Customs Enforcement investigation into the purchase of child pornography that “turned up more than 250 civilian and military employees of the Defense Department—including some with the highest available security clearance.” Mysteriously, the Pentagon refused to further investigate these culprits.[xiv]

One has to wonder why.

Indeed. So widespread is this problem that in July 2019, Representatives Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and Abigail Spanberger (D-Va.) introduced bipartisan legislation titled “End National Defense Network Abuse” to stop pervasive use of Department of Defense (DOD) computers that have been procuring and sharing pornographic images of children by thousands of U.S. government employees,[xv] exposure of whom could be especially effective at adding to body-count lists wherever the focus includes the seedy underbelly of the world’s powerful elite.

For example, not one but two former GOP senators from Arkansas and Oklahoma were investigating child trafficking involving high profile individuals (including sitting judges) when in 2019 they were found murdered. According to numerous reports, Linda Collins-Smith (AR) was about to go public with her findings when she was shot to death in her home.[xvi] Just two days later former Oklahoma State Sen. Jonathan Nichols who purportedly was also investigating pedophiles and sex-slave traffickers was found dead in his Norman, Oklahoma residence.[xvii]

In July 2019, the home of Mexican investigative reporter Lydia Cacho Ribeiro (on whom I believe the female heroin in the new Rambo: Last Blood movie is lightly based) was similarly broken into. Unidentified individuals killed her two dogs and stole her laptop, recorders, and hard drives “containing information about sexual abuse cases the reporter was investigating.”[xviii]

“It’s remarkable Cacho is still alive,” wrote Kurt Nimmo at the time. “In 1999, she was beaten and raped in retaliation for her investigations. Despite this, she continued to report on sex rings and the trafficking and murder of Mexican girls.”[xix]

According to our friend Jaco Booyens, a tireless proponent of the war on human trafficking, the examples above are just the tip of a much larger iceberg. Criminal NESTS and WEBS, as some call them, exist internationally. So far as “Webs,” these involve “big child trafficking rings… and large networks [from] internet trafficking on Backpage to cults like NXIVM, Jeffrey Epstein’s networks to Hollywood pedophiles [where] localized fronts that portray themselves as saviors of children… build a nest in their local community that has all the makings of a child trafficking front [that] typically have a skilled IT person, doctor, dentist, psychologist, court connections, law enforcement, foster and/or social workers, foster care families, domestic violence and/or homeless shelters, churches, and family members” who make up child-abduction rings. Beth Breen, a former employee of Arizona Department of Child Services recently breached her gag order and confirmed to Northwest Liberty News that children are often taken from parents and thrown into the state foster system where torturous and sadistic situations unfold, including sex-trafficking, torture, and even murder.[xx]

Conversely, WEBS, on the other hand, “are an entirely different beast. These are fronts for several nefarious dealings, such as money laundering, child trafficking, drug trafficking, land resources, and pay-to-play style schemes. Oftentimes a single web consists of several of these actions. These are larger scale networks that often operate across global territories. You cannot research a web without understanding the mind of the elite corrupt players involved, being familiar with their strategies and tactics, and at least having some knowledge of their end game. This is a whole different level of strategy whereby they operate in webs, the planning spans years, and they all have common goals.”[xxi]

That in mind, while we know Next Top Model (an American reality television series and competition in which aspiring models compete for the title of “America’s Next Top Model”)[xxii] scout Jean-Luc Brunel flew impoverished 12-year-old triplets in from France as a birthday gift for Jeffrey Epstein to sexually abuse,[xxiii] the truth is that in the United states alone, adults purchase children (sometimes as young as 2-years old, and no, that’s not a typo. Jaco discussed this on a recent episode)[xxiv] to rape at least 2.5 million times per year! Disturbingly, a report by USA Today reveals these predators most usually appear to be “ordinary” people, meaning quite frankly they could include your friendly neighborhood pals.[xxv]

How can this be true?

Because, as Eyes Wide Shut directly Stanly Kubrick implied in his disquietingly erotic 1999 psychological thriller, most people are content not knowing what is happening around them—they go through life with their “eyes wide shut,” avoiding acknowledgment of immoral accomplices conducting criminal abuse all around them. Or perhaps they do see or suspect what is happening, but due to their “power” relationships where financial or political gain is involved, they—like numerous Epstein acquaintances did—turn a blind eye.

“There is no apparent heroic resistance against the secret society of the power elite,” Norwegian historian Håvard Friis Nilsen’s writes in his essay: Deterioration of Trust: The Political Warning in Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut. “What we see is an acknowledgment of the futility of control: they can neither control superior powers nor each other; loyalty is never guaranteed; they must be thankful for the moments in which they are awake.” Andrew Whalen for Newsweek thus adds, “How many people in close proximity to Epstein turned away because of this same sensation?”[xxvi]

Beyond the complexities of social and interpersonal agreements between such human beings, if we may call them that, Kubrick’s sordid vision suggested something else in his movie, too, and I believe it’s connected to the Epstein murder, err, I mean, suicide.

Often associated with the sexploitation of children is a dark, occult element. A breeding ground where affluent members of secret sex societies— shielded from culpability—indulge their vilest urges at the expense of vulnerable children for satanic reasons.

On few occasions, frightening facts behind this truth have been whispered. When ABC News correspondent Craig Spence left his job in the 80s and began “pimping out children to the power elite in the nation’s capital [including prominent officials in the Reagan and subsequent George H.W. Bush administrations][xxvii] throughout the 1980s in apartments that were bugged with video and audio recording equipment,” he, like Jeffrey Epstein, had his home “bugged and had a secret two-way mirror, and … he attempted to ensnare visitors into compromising sexual encounters that he could then use as leverage.” But also like Epstein, he wound up “suicided” at the Boston Ritz Carlton. However, not before he “hinted to Washington Times reporters Michael Hedges and Jerry Seper, who had originally broken the story, that they had merely scratched the surface of something much darker:

All this stuff you’ve uncovered [involving call boys, bribery and the White House tours], to be honest with you, is insignificant compared to other things I’ve done. But I’m not going to tell you those things, and somehow the world will carry on.”[xxviii]

One shudders to think what Spence was alluding to. Could it be his dark forces took him into the same gloomy corridors Epstein’s did? You will hardly believe what is set to be exposed about that this March in Shadowland.
