The folk hero John McAfee died this week in a Spanish prison, hours after a judge had ordered him extradited to the United States to be tortured to death.
He was charged with some kind of tax bullshit.
McAfee had made a big deal of saying he was not going to kill himself. But for me, it’s not hard to believe he would kill himself. The US government tortures political dissidents. As we’ve seen with the Capitol Stormers, the feds had special political prisons where they leave people in solitary for 23 hours a day and subject them to regular beatings.
So when I heard the Spanish authorities say it was suicide, it was not hard for me to believe.
However: now his lawyer is saying otherwise.
Javier Villalba, the attorney for deceased 75-year-old software pioneer McAfee, told media outlet Reuters on Thursday that “at no point” had McAfee shown “any special worry or clue” that would lead anyone to believe he was going to commit suicide. The death of McAfee, who repeatedly warned supporters that he would be “suicided” by U.S. officials while in jail, has been described as a suicide by local Spanish authorities, though autopsy results have not yet been released.
“I had constant telephone contacts with him,” Villalba said to Reuters. “At no point had he shown any special worry or clue that could let us think this could have happened.” Villalba added that he felt “pain, anger, lack of understanding because it was not justified under any circumstance that this man remained in the jail.”
In a statement released several days before his death, McAfee’s wife Janice released a statement in which she claimed the U.S. federal government wanted her husband to “die in prison” to “make an example of him for speaking out against corruption within their government agencies.” She added that “There is no hope for him ever having a fair trial in America because there is no longer any justice in America.”

As National File previously reported, McAfee had repeatedly warned supporters that he believed the U.S. government could try to assassinate him in prison in an attack disguised as a suicide. McAfee believed the death of convicted pedophile and financier Jeffrey Epstein was the result of a staged suicide, and even went as far as to get a tattoo of the phrase “WHACKD” on his arm to symbolize this belief.
Yes. He did get that tattoo.
What’s more – there is a really weird thing.
Immediately after he died, his official Instagram account posted the letter “Q.”
It was promptly banned by Mark Zuckerberg.
He was saying that the government wanted to make an example of him.

Although, one could argue that by committing suicide, he was preventing the government from making an example of him.
I think there needs to be more investigation here.
I don’t want to be the believer in the mainstream story. I’m just saying – it is not totally unreasonable that he would kill himself before a US extradition, especially given that he’s seen what’s been done to Julian Assange, who has been tortured to the point of becoming a vegetable.
But they definitely had reasons to kill him.

Here’s another interesting and obvious fact – John was yet another Trump supporter who was being persecuted politically, probably in part for his support of Trump, who Trump refused to pardon – instead pardoning a bunch of Jewish financial criminals, terrorists and spies.

It’s a sad time, whatever the truth of the matter is.
One thing’s for sure: we will never know the truth of the matter.
People are naturally suspicious of the timing of his suicide. How do we deal with news like this? Distrust of institutions is natural, but…
– Could he have killed himself and Instagram Q was an almighty troll?
– Could something more nefarious have occurred?

But look – I’m not trying to be a shill for the mainstream establishment narrative here. I think it is quite possible something is afoot. I’m just also not going to lie and say that suicide is not also possible.
I don’t really think this was his last clip, but if it was, it’s a good clip.
