The Ricky Vaughn trial, over memes as voter interference, begins. It appears the informant who was sent in on him was “Microchip” who was the same one who Jack Posobiec did a whole OAN piece on, claiming Microchip told him he was Q-anon and had begun it as a joke. So an FBI informant was duping Posobiec with a story designed to discredit Q. From the piece – “According to a criminal complaint, Mackey and unnamed co-conspirators created a number of images purporting to be Clinton campaign ads, with messages such as ‘Avoid the Line. Vote from Home. Text ‘Hillary’ to 59925.’ “ He had four people volunteering to help him, and they met in Twitter DM group chats with names such as “Fed Free Hatechat.” It is a perfect name, if you are a fed. You handler will laugh, and the “Hatechat” label will look great at trial. And none of those other people are being charged, despite doing the exact same things Ricky did. I can’t say I know what happened here for sure. But based on my own experience at this site, where I have had a few personalities show up offering “ideas,” particularly for stuff which would have led to lawsuits, my guess is Ricky got swarmed by “meme-makers” who  said they had all these memes, would he be interested in them, and they tried to worm their way in from there. I would not be surprised that early on, Ricky used one of their memes and the surveillance had 10,000 people follow him in one day after it, making it viral artificially, so he would see that and think this guy’s ideas were great. Other contacts from people who really wanted to help may even have been blocked and he has no idea. This is the game, and when you are coming to it as an honest dude with no experience, like Ricky, it is very tough to get your feet under you fast enough to be able to keep up with all these people, who are working for an organization which has been doing this for decades, if not centuries, and has an intelligence file on you a mile long. The best advice I can give is be so busy doing your own thing you do not have the time to consider working with other people. And it is a shame, because I have no doubt there are great people out there who it would be magical to link up with. But it is just an immense risk – and they design it that way, both to get you, and to isolate you. Ricky’s legal defense funds are here and here and here. He is a righteous dude. I hope Trump drags him to the White House after this, and gets him running for office somewhere.

Terrifying video shows execution-style Miami Beach shooting.

Still from the video five seconds before the shooting shows this guy sitting alone on the side looking at his phone:

Just before the gun is produced and the shooting begins, he looks up at the shooter’s position to watch:

The “couple” walking in front of the target features a male walking with his cell phone screen on, as if he was using it, and it was not in sleep mode. In the video you can see it more clearly as he walks:

A shooting like that is a more complex operation than it would appear. The shooter is not going to walk all around the city with his crew all day, and hope the target happens to walk past him at a moment when he is ready to shoot, and then he makes up his exfiltration on the fly from wherever it is. He knew the target would be there at that moment because his operation put the guy there, and I would assume had a car waiting to take him away, sitting fairly close, or a planned route to safety. The girl with the target is walking slower, forcing him to turn back around to face her, turning his head away from where the shooter will approach from. She even seems to be doing something as the shooting is about to happen to draw his attention away from the shooter. Never, ever, trust a woman who approaches you, especially a good looking one. Hot girls have too many options chasing them to waste their time chasing you, no matter how good looking you are. The shooter used the John Gotti/Paul Castelano camouflage, hiding among several other people dressed identically. It was not Russian hats, but worked well enough. They are all staring at the target as it is about to happen though, which I think is something you would not see from trained operatives. Static spotter could be with the shooter crew, but he looks more like normal Cabal ground surveillance, which probably just knew the shooting was about to happen because it was planned among shitbags Cabal was watching, (and probably employed), and the surveillance was documenting it the way they do everything. I would assume the same of the couple using a  “cheating command” position on the target, leading the target, since that looks like what I see and is a more professional technique. The shooters probably just sent the girl in to grab the guy’s attention, lead him on, and take him to that spot. Notice, even the FBI, which has a bit of a shitty reputation as a ruthless, law-less intelligence operation, is supposed to notify mobsters when it gets word they are about to be capped. But not this thing. And it freely puts its assets right in the field of fire, with no concern for them. It is not a law enforcement agency, and I would assume is not explicitly associated with one, even if it does control them from time to time. My guess is this was a gang or even Cartel hit as part of some inter-shitbag warfare, and Cabal was just monitoring it since this is their area to control, and they keep on top of such things. But you can see the level of monitoring of society, that this thing knows where all these things are about to happen, and has the assets to put eyes on scene to watch it go down, and update command with the latest information on who is doing what, or not doing anything ever again, all within a second or two of the death. It is everywhere, starting in Kindergarten.

Trump on Truth Social implies DeSantis might be AC/DC – “Ron DeSanctimonious will probably find out about FALSE ACCUSATIONS & FAKE STORIES sometime in the future, as he gets older, wiser, and better known, when he’s unfairly and illegally attacked by a woman, even classmates that are “underage” (or possibly a man!), I’m sure he will want to fight these misfits just like I do!”
