But let’s be frank here. Our mainstream friends never wanted to cover the Q-Anon phenomena. Their idea was to not dignify the movement with any recognition, so as not to bring any more attention to it. But that was before Trump rallies across the country started showing a growing number of supporters sporting Q shirts and posters. The Deep State must have figured that not saying something would be more harmful to their grip on the steering wheel than saying something, clumsy as it may look for them to be suddenly weighing in on this matter en masse after being collectively silent for so long.
Nonetheless, they must have thought that if they blanket the airwaves and webwaves with the ‘alt-right Trump supporter conspiracy nut’ angle, they might be able to herd back a few sheep who might stray from the flock if they asked the question ‘Who is Q?’ to people who actually have done their research and had some informed opinions about it.
Mainstream Media really glosses over the inception of Q-Anon and the reasons anyone paid any attention to it in the first place, but they usually do mention some of the most basic facts about the phenomena:
- An anonymous user named ‘Q’ began posting in the 4chan internet forum entitled “Calm Before the Storm” last October 28th
- Q claims to be a high-level government insider, or group of insiders, with Q clearance (a United States Department of Energy security clearance with access to classified information)
- The messages Q posts consists mainly of short leading questions and bits of intel known as “bread crumbs”
- Many Q followers identify themselves as “bakers” since they attempt to put together the “bread crumbs” into a coherent message
- The main undercurrent of the messages is that Donald Trump is working with an alliance of political and military insiders to bring down the Deep State
Beyond these basic facts, mainstream media is holding a concerted front on this one point: we don’t know who Q is, but we think probably, likely, with 99.9% certainty, that it’s nonsense. It is ‘conspiracy theory,’ and we know all conspiracy theories are nonsense.
In the mainstream articles I’ve read, it seems as though one mainstream source happily references opinion from other mainstream sources as though they were the golden truth. Here’s an interesting example where a CNN writer calls upon the Daily Beast’s Will Sommer who, the writer opines, ‘has been writing and thinking smartly about QAnon since its inception.’:
CNN:Why has this become such a, well, thing?
Sommer: Unlike something like birtherism or Pizzagate, QAnon is a kind of mega-conspiracy theory that sucks in just about every conspiracy theory you can think of. Pizzagate is part of it, birtherism is part of it — but so is the JFK assassination conspiracy theory, the idea that all these mass shootings have been deep-state false flags, and much more. The vague nature of the Q clues also means that you can sort of imprint whatever your personal issue is onto it.
In one fell swoop, it’s like mainstream media is trying to bring us back to a simpler time when the ridicule bestowed upon ‘conspiracy theory’ was at the height of its influence. One of the real disconnects here is that Sommer implies that most people still don’t believe there was a conspiracy (a plan made by more than one person) to assassinate John F. Kennedy, when we actually live in a time in which a majority of people believe this and other well-known ‘conspiracies’ to be fact. In fact a March poll by Politico reveals that belief in the Deep State is not the stuff of fringe groups, and is only growing:
Does the unelected group known as the Deep State exist?
- Definitely: 27%
- Probably: 47%
- Probably Not: 16%
- Definitely Not: 5%
But mainstream media really hasn’t got many other options, do they? Nobody knows this better than the Deep State themselves–the owners and puppetmasters of mainstream media, whose cloak of secrecy has all but been removed. Mainstream media is in a full-on quandary: many people who work within these organizations don’t understand how the world works and how information is controlled.
The fundamental assertions about the state of the world made by Q and popular analysts of his posts upsets the very nature of the mainstream media. Hence they cannot talk accurately about Q, even if some within those organizations want to, because to do so would be to admit that they worked for criminally-owned, truth-distorting news organizations. The only way the mainstream can report on Q is through the divisive polemic story filters like Right Wing/Left Wing, Trump Lovers/Trump Haters they have been indoctrinated into, which as we shall see cannot be employed to truly understand what Q is.
Perception of Q Followers
To their followers, Q is essentially what Q purports to be: the voice of political, military and intelligence insiders who are allied against the control of the Deep State. There is much speculation about who Q is but general agreement that the Q posts are informed by a group of insiders. The whole phenomena of the Q posts is considered part of an intelligence operation that is coming from white hats within intelligence communities. Some believe public figures such as Julian Assange, Edward Snowden, William Binney and other prominent whistleblowers, who have been on the inside and know what is going on, may have a hand in the information behind this operation.
There is some talk that the Q operation began as a way for insiders to communicate with each other on various phases of their intelligence operation, and it has inadvertently become a full-blown drip by drip revelation of truth to a growing community of researchers and supporters who are ready for it and willing to invest time and effort making sense of the clues. Regardless of the initial intentions, it seems now that Q has embraced its role as a purveyor of updates to the public of the progress being made behind the scenes, in recognition of the fact that an informed and engaged public can only help matters in disclosing the truth and defeating the Deep State. In this way, it dovetails nicely with those who believe a mass awakening to the truth is needed in order for us to remove the need and withdraw our consent for a controlling authority like the Deep State to operate at all.
Q Did Not Invent Anything
One of the aspects of Q that mainstream media cannot intelligently discuss is how the movement ever got off the ground. They will try to hem and haw about how people on the far right are desperate to believe something good is happening through their hero Donald Trump since we are living in such tumultuous times. But that is completely inaccurate, if one examines who was paying attention to Q posts on 4chan early on and what they were saying about it.
First off, most of the people commenting on the posts were people who already had a strong understanding of the existence of the Deep State, the power of the Corporatocracy, the fraudulent activities of Central Banks, the rampant illegal surveillance of intelligence agencies, and the deception of mainstream media. They were versed in the revelations of Julian Assange and Edward Snowdon, revelations which the mainstream media has given up directly calling ‘conspiracy theories’ because they are commonly accepted as fact. They were not Donald Trump supporters per se except in regards to the idea that he was not a member of the Deep State (like Hillary Clinton is known to be). Most were a bit skeptical of Donald Trump’s promise to ‘Drain the Swamp,’ although they certainly knew by then that there was a swamp that needed draining.
No, the main reason the Q-Anon phenomena took off as it did was because many people saw truth in what they were reading, ideas that cohered with the rest of what they had been researching and coming to understand about how our world works and who has held the real power for so long. The reason that the mainstream media is floundering so much these days is that they are trying to discredit as ‘conspiracy theory’ many things that to the diligent researcher are only one degree of separation from things that are commonly accepted to be true, such as the revelations of Assange, Snowdon and others.
Trump Supporters Jump On The Bandwagon
Of course now the Q phenomenon is growing among Trump supporters, because a certain narrative positions Trump as a superhero who is truly taking on all comers in dismantling a system that many presidents had warned people about since the 1950’s and even before that, a system that showed its force with the assassination of JFK in 1963. But for most serious researchers, Trump is a figurehead for an alliance group that probably has its roots in the time of JFK and really became galvanized after the 9/11 massacre.
Trump may have been asked to run for president by one or more military men that were part of the alliance, as some people say, but what seems more clear is that he is getting much of his confidence and swagger from knowing that he is backed by a very powerful alliance that now has control of the majority of the military, and he need only follow instructions at the appropriate time in order to fulfill his mission.
For certain, Trump has been strictly forbidden from publicly commenting on Q, even to the extent of directly acknowledged its existence. An untethered Donald Trump would surely be making direct references to the flattering advances of Q posts if left to his own devices. Instead, questions about Q are answered in very indirect and circumspect ways, such as this recent response from such a question by White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders:
Reporter: “Does the President encourage the support of people who showed up last night in these QAnon and Blacks for Trump fringe groups?”
Sanders: “The President condemns and denounces any group that would incite violence against another individual and certainly doesn’t support groups that would promote that type of behavior. We’ve been clear about that a number of times since the beginning of the administration.”
For many researchers, however, Trump and the White House have dropped hints, Q-style, that he not only acknowledges the movement but is intimately connected to it. The best way to explore these examples is by looking at this link. You will notice pictures, Q posts, time stamps and so forth as they relate to posts Trump or the White House made AFTER the Q posts.
The precise identity of Q, indeed the validity that Q is who he is made out to be by his supporters, is not yet a matter of certainty. As with many things in our world today, our personal discernment is needed in order for us to draw our own conclusions. What seems obvious, however, is that even the scantest research done a little below the surface will reveal that the mainstream media characterization of Q has little resemblance to reality.
