(For those that follow ‘Q’): Krassenstein brother says hes shutting Q down
You may recall 2 weeks ago I told you all that #QAnon was "done".
QAnon laughed it off like I had no clue what I was talking about. Guess what! One of their largest internet hubs has just been shut down. The r/GreatAwakening subreddit.
Any clue who got it shut down?

Reddit bans QAnon subreddit that featured pro-Trump conspiracy theories
"We are very clear in our site terms of service that posting content that incites violence, disseminates personal information, or harasses will get users and communities banned from Reddit," the representative said.
The QAnon conspiracy theory has become popular among a group of supporters of President Donald Trump. Allegations include that a multibillion-dollar cement company and Tom Hanks are involved in child sex trafficking and pedophilia, and that Trump and special counsel Robert Mueller are working to take down the Deep State
I don’t follow this person but I know some here do. I’m posting this so you can see who’s out there trying to shut everything down.
Feds Seized a Fortune From #Resistance Icons Accused of Boosting Online Ponzi Schemes.
In late 2016, federal agents showed up at the Fort Myers, Florida, homes of brothers Brian and Edward Krassenstein, seizing computers and financial records, and hauling off “at least 20 to 30 bundles of stuff.”
At the time, the story was just a notable blip on local media’s crime blotter. But in the two years since, the Krassensteins have become more than a pair of local businessmen. They’re now prominent members of the online anti-Trump “resistance.”
According to the feds, the brothers also, until recently, ran websites that propped up fraudulent online financial scams. Law enforcement officials last year seized nearly half a million dollars from the brothers, money that prosecutors say was derived from wire fraud. The Krassensteins, who have not been charged with any crimes, maintain that they did nothing wrong or illegal.
But it has also drawn the scrutiny and criticism of progressive activists who see the Krassensteins as opportunists distracting from a more productive message. While others have been accused of using the anti-Trump “resistance” to line their own pockets, the Krassensteins have a documented history of involvement with shady internet get-rich-quick schemes—a history that one federal financial investigator had reason to believe amounted to a criminal conspiracy.
Despite that detailed account of the illicit activity that allegedly enriched the Krassensteins, the federal government never charged either of the brothers with a crime, instead opting to simply go after what prosecutors alleged were their ill-gotten gains. The government eventually seized $450,000 from them.
These guys are a perfect fit for the ‘Resistance’. And they’re plying tbeir trade to the right people. Either corrupt, willfully stupid, or just naturally obtuse.
