New Jersey man doxxed as QAnon website operator

by Shepard Ambellas, Intellihub: Citigroup information and security analyst doxxed as QAnon website operator A popular website that aggregates QAnon conspiracy theories was shut down after a New Jersey man has been exposed as the operator of the site which garners thousands of dollars in revenue monthly. The fact-checking site Logically.ai identified Jason Gelinas on 10 September as being the “developer and mouthpiece” of the site which aggregates a plethora of Q posts. William Turton reporting for Bloomberg reached out to Gelinas outside of his home for comment where the web operator declined to give any details about the operation. “I’m not going to comment on any of that,” Gelinas said. “I am not going to get involved. I want to stay out of it.” A Linkedin profile for Gelinas states that he works at Citigroup as an information and security analyst. Bloomberg reports: QAppAnon, the online name of qmap’s creator, also runs a Patreon account, which receives more than $3,000 a month in donations, according to the Patreon site. In March, QAppAnon announced on Patreon an upcoming Android app named “Armor of God,” a social network for followers of QAnon. Citigroup has refused to comment. Read More @ Intellihub.com

Citigroup Was Having a Helluva Bad Year – Now a Citi Senior VP Has Been Outed as the Man Behind a QAnon Conspiracy Website

by Pam Martens and Russ Martens, Wall St On Parade: So far this year, the mega Wall Street bank, Citigroup, has lost 37 percent of its market value – outpacing peer banks like Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase and Bank of America. (See chart below.) Then there was the fat finger in August in the back office of Citigroup that wired $900 million by mistake to pay off the entire principal balance of a Revlon bond instead of making just the payment of interest on the bond. Citigroup is now embroiled in lawsuits with the Revlon lenders, attempting to get them to return the money. According to Institutional Investor, “a total of $526.4 million has yet to be returned” as of August 27. The lenders are refusing to return the funds to Citigroup on the basis that Revlon owed them the money anyway because Revlon had improperly changed the terms of the loan. Mistakenly wiring almost $1 billion on behalf of Revlon out of the bank’s own coffers is not something that federal regulators want to hear about from a federally-insured bank that sits on $1.2 trillion in customers’ deposits and a bank that received the largest bailout in U.S. history from 2007 to 2010. Citigroup also has a serial recidivist reputation for engaging in wrongdoing. As the bank’s share price was tanking, in June Bloomberg News dropped the bombshell that Citigroup had “returned almost twice as much money to its stockholders as it earned” over the prior three years, as a result of it buying back its own shares (which prop up its share price) and paying out common and preferred dividends. In April, Wall Street On Parade reported this: “As of December 31, 2019, Citigroup’s federally-insured bank, Citibank N.A., had $1.45 trillion on its balance sheet with $150 billion in equity capital and $3 trillion in off-balance sheet items, with a ‘mysterious’ two entries marked simply as ‘other’ that total $389 billion. (What kind of accounting rules allow $389 billion to be described as ‘other.’)” Read our full report here. Citigroup was apparently attempting to get the kind of public relations boost this week that presidential candidate Joe Biden got in announcing that his running mate for Veep was going to be a woman, Senator Kamala Harris. On Thursday, Citigroup released an unexpected statement that its CEO, Michael Corbat, would be stepping down in February and handing the reins to Jane Fraser, the first ever female CEO of a major Wall Street bank. Notably, on the very same day that Citigroup made this historic announcement, Thursday, September 10, a fact-checking website known as “Logically,” posted a breathtakingly detailed outing of one of Citigroup’s Senior Vice Presidents, Jason Gelinas, as the man behind the notorious QAnon conspiracy website known as QMap.pub. The QMap.pub website has now disappeared from the web but you can read its archived postings at the website maintained by the Wayback Machine, an initiative of the Internet Archive. NPR reports that QAnon followers believe that “President Trump is saving the world from a cult of cannibalistic pedophiles” – most hiding out in the Democratic party according to QAnon thinking. The FBI has labeled QAnon “a potential domestic terrorist threat.” That hasn’t dissuaded President Donald Trump from retweeting posts from QAnon followers. The career history that LinkedIn had been showing for Gelinas has now been taken down. We emailed Jennifer Lowney, the head of Corporate Communications at Citigroup, asking if Gelinas was still employed at the firm and if the bank had requested LinkedIn to take down his resume. We have yet to receive a response. According to Gelinas’ resume, he has worked at Citigroup for 17 years and is currently a Senior Vice President and Director of GFTS Core Technology Services. An unrelated help wanted ad at Citi described GFTS as follows: “Global Functions Technology Services [GFTS] provides application development and other technology services for global functions, including Compliance, Enterprise Risk, Finance, Human Resources, Legal, Real Estate, IT Risk, Procurement, and General Services…The GFTS Portfolio Architect is responsible for day-to-day delivery of the GFTS portfolio architecture function, managing the delivery of architecture services to assigned development portfolios and their customers, with focus on both strategic alignment of business and technology architectures and tactical delivery of architectural design services in the context of portfolio initiatives, programs and projects.” Gelinas hardly fits the profile of a kooky conspiracy theorist. He and his wife live in a meticulously landscaped $790,000 home in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey. (We tracked down the residence at the county’s property records and then looked at a photo and market value estimate at Realtor.com.) For someone holding a senior position in IT at one of the biggest banks in the U.S., Gelinas certainly didn’t know how to hide his tracks on the web. His home phone number is the same phone number used for Patriot Platforms, LLC, a company registered with the state of New Jersey that is the developer of the QMap.pub website. We checked to see if Gelinas is himself a Trump supporter. Federal Election Commission records show that he has made just $200 in donations to a Political Action Committee called WinRed, which emerged in 2019. The Center for Responsive Politics explains that WinRed was created to compete with ActBlue and “attract small-dollar donors and convert President Donald Trump’s popularity into success for other GOP candidates.” Interestingly, the article also notes that “the site also goes beyond its liberal alternative in collecting data on donors.” Collecting data is something that Gelinas also appeared to be doing. We located a Google cache of QMap’s privacy statement. It says it may collect the following data: “While using our Service, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you (‘Personal Data’). Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to: Email address, Cookies and Usage Data. “We may also collect information that your browser sends whenever you visit our Service or when you access the Service by or through a mobile device (‘Usage Data’). “This Usage Data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol address (e.g. IP address), browser type, browser version, the pages of our Service that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages, unique device identifiers and other diagnostic data. “When you access the Service by or through a mobile device, this Usage Data may include information such as the type of mobile device you use, your mobile device unique ID, the IP address of your mobile device, your mobile operating system, the type of mobile Internet browser you use, unique device identifiers and other diagnostic data.” What does the website plan to do with this data? It explains as follows: “Your information, including Personal Data, may be transferred to — and maintained on — computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ than those from your jurisdiction…” Our suspicions about this data mining are heightened by our reporting on what Charles Koch was doing with his i360 data mining operation for the Republican Party.

Praying Medic on QAnon and when the Deep State arrests are coming

We’ve all heard about Qanon by now. If you look on Twitter, you’ll see a bunch of MAGA supporting, Donald Trump loving accounts talking about this person named Q. If you watch the mainstream media, they say that Qanon is a vast Right Wing Conspiracy Theory that is dangerous to Democracy. So who is correct? Praying Medic joins Jeff Dornik on this episode of Freedom One-On-One to break it all down. Praying Medic is one of the foremost experts on the topic of Qanon, writing several books and hosting the Praying Medic Podcast all on the topic. There’s so much misinformation out there, it’s important to understand the truth! During this podcast, he shares who he believe Q and Q+ are and even tells us when the Deep State arrests are coming. Let me tell you, we need to drain the swamp and need the criminals in DC to begin to be arrested. However, his answer may shock you! For more information on Praying Medic, please visit http://prayingmedic.com. COVID-19 may take down an independent news outlet Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat. Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it. When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that. Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the so-called “surge” or “2nd-wave” that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance. The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We need approximately $11,500 to stay afloat for the rest of 2020, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated. The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above. Election year or not, coronavirus lockdowns or not, anarchic riots or not, the need for truthful journalism endures. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going. Check out the NEW NOQ Report Podcast. American Conservative Movement Join fellow patriots as we form a grassroots movement to advance the cause of conservatism. The coronavirus crisis has prompted many, even some conservatives, to promote authoritarianism. It’s understandable to some extent now, but it must not be allowed to embed itself in American life. We currently have 8000+ patriots with us in a very short time. If you are interested, please join us to receive updates.
