So if you only read the MSM, you’d think the Q Movement was a truly horrible group of people.
They must stand for rape, murder, robbery, battery, child molestation….right?
Actually, kind of the opposite.
The Q Movement is a group of Americans that love America, freedom, liberty, and one of their basic missions just happens to be exposing and stopping child sex trafficking.
Bet you didn’t know that if you only listen to the MSM.
But it’s true.
It’s my duty to get the word out….and I hope you will help me!
I love what happened recently when a reporter asked the president what he thought about the QAnon movement.
Trump responded by admitting that he didn’t know much about the movement but recognized that they are a group that is frustrated with how cities like Portland and Chicago are being run and that they love the country.
President Trump also said that he hears that many of them are supporters of his.
Naturally, that last comment is all the far-left news organizations are now pouncing on.
They’re missing the key part of the press conference though.
In a follow up question, the reporter asked the president:
“At the crux of the theory is this belief that you are secretly saving the world from this satanic cult of pedophiles and cannibals. Does that sound like something that you are behind?”
President Trump’s response was simple: “Is that supposed to be a bad thing?”
#NEW: Pres. @realDonaldTrump responds to a question from a reporter asking if he supports QAnon, and those who believe Dems are “pedophiles and cannibals” saying, “Is that supposed to be a bad thing? We are actually. We are saving the world."

The left is so desperate to get rid of President Trump, that they will stretch anything he says until they convince people that it is ‘very bad and wrong.’
They always try – if they spent as much time on the truth as they do lies and gotcha questions the US would really know what is going on! The demonicRAT party is out of control and, control and power is their main goal. TDS is very real!!

This is very simple..
President Trump was asked a question about QAnon and he responded in the best way possible, by turning the question back around on the reporter.
As Americans, we should all be asking the same exact question that Trump responded with: “Is that a bad thing?”
There's no such thing as a dumb question but this was pretty close. Loved how he made them look like clowns🤡 for asking such a ridiculous question.

President Trump says he agrees with the notion that we need to fight against pedophiles and cannibals, and the news media pounce because he’s ‘giving credence to a fringe right-wing group.’
The real question is, what are the major news networks and the democrats really afraid of?
If QAnon is just a silly conspiracy group, why are they so desperate to silence the group?
Why does anything QAnon related get people banned from social media, while wishing death upon the president after his brother passes away trends?
And if you want even more, watch this.
Now that you know the TRUTH, let’s take a look at what the MSM is trying to tell you.
Does any of this remotely line up with what you just learned?
Ask yourself why they are lying.
And also ask yourself like President Trump did, why would you be against what Q stands for?
Unless…..well, I’ll let you fill in the answer to that question. I think you know it. And it’s very dark and ugly. A dark and ugly reality of the world’s elites.
Here’s what CBS News wants you to beLIEve:
What started as a fringe movement among President Trump’s supporters, confined to the shadier corners of the internet, has taken a mainstream turn. The QAnon conspiracy theory started on 4chan, the bulletin board known for creating and spreading memes, but has moved to larger social media platforms. Facebook has taken action against QAnon groups and pages, while Twitter removed several thousand QAnon-linked accounts in 2020.
The FBI has warned that fringe conspiracy theories like QAnon pose a growing domestic terrorism threat.
What is the QAnon conspiracy theory? What do its followers believe? Those questions have become more difficult to answer as the movement has expanded since its inception in 2017.
The story of Q
QAnon purports that America is run by a cabal of pedophiles and Satan-worshippers who run a global child sex-trafficking operation and that President Trump is the only person who can stop them. The information supposedly comes from a high-ranking government official who posts cryptic clues on 4chan and the even more unfettered site 8chan under the name “Q.”
That’s the central gist of the theory. The rest is open to some degree of interpretation, which is necessary because Q’s posts tend to read like riddles. But YouTube videos created by QAnon believers help fill in the gaps and create a storyline that’s more-or-less comprehensible.
QAnon exists as a kind of parallel history, in which a “deep state” took over decades ago. An all-encompassing theory of the world, it appears to tie together and explain everything from “Pizzagate” to ISIS to the prevalence of mass shootings and the JFK assassination.
It claims the military, supposedly eager to see the deep state overthrown, recruited President Trump to run for president. But the deep state, which controls the media, quickly tried to smear him through “fake news” and unfounded allegations of collusion with Russia. It goes on to insist that despite the deep state’s best efforts, however, President Trump is winning, and that Q is releasing sanctioned leaks to the public in order to galvanize them ahead of “The Storm,” which is the moment when the deep state’s leaders are arrested and sent to Guantanamo Bay. QAnon believers have called this process “The Great Awakening.”
Enter “the storm”
The storm takes its name from President Trump’s enigmatic comment from October 2018 about “the calm before the storm.” Q began posting soon after and said that the storm Mr. Trump referenced is a coming series of mass arrests that would end the deep state forever.
In QAnon lore, President Trump was secretly working with special counsel Robert Mueller to bring the deep state down, and the storm is a kind of Judgment Day in which the evildoers are punished and the faithful are redeemed. Q has repeatedly suggested that the storm would hit in the very near future and has even said certain people would be arrested at certain dates.
When those dates come and go without any arrests, Q says that they needed to be delayed for one reason or another, but that President Trump still has the situation well in hand.
Bakers and breadcrumbs
Q’s posts tend to be either vague or totally incomprehensible, but QAnon believers are more than happy to try and decipher them. Last year, for example, Q posted a photo of an unnamed island chain. Eager to divine the reasoning behind the post, QAnon adherents tried to “prove” that the photo must have been taken on Air Force One and thus that Q was traveling with the president.
The Q posts are known to the faithful as “breadcrumbs.” The people who then try to figure out what they mean are called “bakers.” According to The Daily Beast’s Will Sommer, QAnon believers also spend a lot of time trying to figure out who in the government is a “white hat” Trump supporter and who is a “black hat” in league with the deep state. Their rallying cry is “where we go one, we go all,” a line from the 1996 Jeff Bridges sailing adventure “White Squall” that they misattribute to President Kennedy.
The phrase is frequently abbreviated to “WWG1WGA,” which Roseanne Barr — one of several celebrity QAnon supporters — tweeted in June 2018. Former Red Sox pitcher and current right-wing radio host Curt Schilling has also promoted QAnon online.
The name refers to Q-level clearance at the Energy Department. But who’s behind the posts is anybody’s guess. According to Sommer, the QAnon faithful sometimes point to former national security adviser Michael Flynn and White House aide Dan Scavino as possibilities. Others believe it’s Mr. Trump himself. Another theory is that John F. Kennedy Jr. faked his death and now posts on 8chan as QAnon.
On November 3, Election Day, 8chan (now 8kun) administrator Ron Watkins resigned from his post. Q did not post for the next week, raising questions about a connection.
And the NBC News propaganda:
In November 2017, a small-time YouTube video creator and two moderators of the 4chan website, one of the most extreme message boards on the internet, banded together and plucked out of obscurity an anonymous and cryptic post from the many conspiracy theories that populated the website’s message board.
Over the next several months, they would create videos, a Reddit community, a business and an entire mythology based off the 4chan posts of “Q,” the pseudonym of a person claiming to be a high-ranking military officer. The theory they espoused would become Qanon, and it would eventually make its way from those message boards to national media stories and the rallies of President Donald Trump.
Now, the people behind that effort are at the center of a fractious debate among conspiracy enthusiasts, some of whom believe the three people who first popularized the Qanon theory are promoting it in order to make a living. Others suggest that these original followers actually wrote Q’s mysterious posts.
While the identity of the original author or authors behind “Q” is still unknown, the history of the conspiracy theory’s spread is well-documented — through YouTube videos, social media posts, Reddit archives, and public records reviewed by NBC News.
NBC News has found that the theory can be traced back to three people who sparked some of the first conversation about Qanon and, in doing so, attracted followers who they then asked to help fund Qanon “research.”
Qanon is a convoluted conspiracy theory with no apparent foundation in reality. The heart of it asserts that for the last year the anonymous “Q” has taken to the fringe internet message boards of 4chan and 8chan to leak intelligence about Trump’s top-secret war with a cabal of criminals run by politicians like Hillary Clinton and the Hollywood elite. There is no evidence for these claims.
In addition to peeking into the mainstream, the theory has been increasingly linked to real-world violence. In recent months, Qanon followers have allegedly been involved in a foiled presidential assassination plot, a devastating California wildfire, and an armed standoff with local law enforcement officers in Arizona.
Part of the Qanon appeal lies in its game-like quality. Followers wait for clues left by “Q” on the message board. When the clues appear, believers dissect the riddle-like posts alongside Trump’s speeches and tweets and news articles in an effort to validate the main narrative that Trump is winning a war against evil.
There are now dozens of commentators who dissect “Q” posts — on message boards, in YouTube videos and on their personal pages — but the theory was first championed by a handful of people who worked together to stir discussion of the “Q” posts, eventually pushing the theory on to bigger platforms and gaining followers — a strategy that proved to be the key to Qanon’s spread and the originators’ financial gain.
Before Q, there was a wide variety of “anon” 4chan posters all claiming to have special government access.
In 2016, there was FBIAnon, a self-described “high-level analyst and strategist” offering intel about the 2016 investigation into the Clinton Foundation. Then came HLIAnon, an acronym for High Level Insider, who posted about various dubious conspiracies in riddles, including one that claimed Princess Diana had been killed because she found out about 9/11 “beforehand” and had “tried to stop it.” Then “CIAAnon” and “CIA Intern” took to the boards in early 2017, and last August one called WH Insider Anon offered a supposed preview that something that was “going to go down” regarding the DNC and leaks.
Qanon was just another unremarkable part of the “anon” genre until November 2017, when two moderators of the 4chan board where Q posted predictions, who went by the usernames Pamphlet Anon and BaruchtheScribe, reached out to Tracy Diaz, according to Diaz’s blogs and YouTube videos. BaruchtheScribe, in reality a self-identified web programmer from South Africa named Paul Furber, confirmed that account to NBC News.
“A bunch of us decided that the message needed to go wider so we contacted Youtubers who had been commenting on the Q drops,” Furber said in an email.
Diaz, a small-time YouTube star who once hosted a talk show on the fringe right-wing network Liberty Movement Radio, had found moderate popularity with a couple of thousand views for her YouTube videos analyzing WikiLeaks releases and discussing the “pizzagate” conspiracy, a baseless theory that alleged a child sex ring was being run out of a Washington pizza shop.
As Diaz tells it in a blog post detailing her role in the early days of Qanon, she banded together with the two moderators. Their goal, according to Diaz, was to build a following for Qanon — which would mean bigger followings for them as well.
On Nov. 3, 2017, just six days after the first 4chan post from “Q,” Diaz posted a video entitled “/POL/- Q Clearance Anon – Is it #happening???” in which she introduced the conspiracy theory to her audience.
“I do not typically do videos like this,” she said, but citing Q’s “very specific and kind of eerie” posts, Diaz explained that she would be covering the 4chan posts, “just in case this stuff turns out to be legit because honestly it kind of seems legit.”
