Who is Q? What is Q? And, perhaps most importantly, why is Q?
Q and the ever-growing worldwide movement it’s inspired have been the
objects of fascination, mockery and hatred, but of surprisingly little
Q first appeared in October 2017 on an anonymous online forum called
4Chan, posting messages that implied top-clearance knowledge of
upcoming events. More than 3,000 messages later, Q has created a
disturbing, multi-faceted portrait of a global crime syndicate that
operates with impunity. Q’s followers in the QAnon community faithfully
analyze every detail of Q’s drops, which are compiled here and here.
The mainstream media has published hundreds of articles attacking Q as
an insane rightwing conspiracy, particularly after President Trump
seemed to publicly confirm his connection to it. At a North
Carolina rally in 2019, Trump made a point of drawing attention to a
baby wearing a onesie with a big Q.
In recent weeks, the tempo of Trump’s spotlighting of Q has
accelerated, with the President retweeting Q followers twenty times in
one day. Trump has featured Q fans in his ads and deployed one of Q’s
signature phrases (“These people are sick”) at his rallies. The
President’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, has also retweeted Q followers.
Q has noted that the media never asks Trump the obvious question: What
do you think of Q? To Q followers, the reason they don’t ask is
obvious. They’re afraid of the answer.
In the meantime, Q’s influence continues to spread. Protestors in Hong
Kong, Iran, and France have held up Q signs and chanted Q quotes. Q’s
revelations are uniting people all over the world who want freedom.
If you’re unfamiliar with Q or only know it through the media’s
attacks, I’d like to provide a brief introduction to this extraordinary
phenomenon. I’ve followed Q since the first drop, and I’ve grown
increasingly impressed by the accuracy, breadth and depth of Q’s
messages. Q followers were prepared long in advance for the easing of
hostilities with North Korea, the deflation of the mullahs of Iran, and
the discovery of Ukraine as a hotbed of corruption for American
politicians. They knew a great deal about Jeffrey Epstein’s activities
before the public did and anticipate even more shocking revelations to
come. As Q likes to say, “Future proves past.” As Q’s predictions come
true, they lend retroactive credibility to the entire enterprise.
Q’s followers believe that Q is a military intelligence operation, the
first of its kind, whose goal is to provide the public with secret
information. Many Q followers think the Q team was founded by Admiral
Michael Rogers, the former Director of the National Security Agency and
former Commander of US Cyber Command. Some suspect that Dan
Scavino, White House Director of Social Media, is part of the team,
because the high quality of Q’s writing has the luster of a
Q is a new weapon in the game of information warfare, bypassing a
hostile media and corrupt government to communicate directly with the
public. Think of Q as a companion to Trump’s twitter. Whereas Trump
communicates bluntly and directly, Q is cryptic, sly and subtle,
offering only clues that beg for context and connection.
Here’s the way it works: Q posts
messages (also known as “drops” or “crumbs”) on an anonymous online
forum, which are discussed, analyzed, and critiqued by the board’s
inhabitants. (The forum has changed a few times after massive online
attacks.) Hundreds of social media accounts then spread Q’s latest
posting to worldwide followers who share their research, analysis, and
interpretations of Q’s latest information.
I’ve compiled a list of Q’s most famous catch phrases and tried to put them into context.
The Great Awakening: We’re living
in a unique time in which ordinary citizens around the world are
collaborating to understand and expose the corrupt system that rules
us. The system thrives on deception, and the overwhelming task of The
Great Awakening is to penetrate its lies and reveal the truth.
Dark To Light:
Q tells us that what our rulers fear the most is exposure. Bringing
their crimes out of protected darkness into the light of public
scrutiny destroys their power to deceive. And as their power fades, the
darkness of our divided, violent world will yield to the light of
freedom, cooperation, and peace.
- The first phase of
The Great Awakening is heightened awareness of the Deep State – the
interlocking governmental entities that operate outside the law to
expand their own power. Elections and popular opinion don’t impact the
ability of the Deep State to enforce its agenda.
- The second phase of
The Great Awakening investigates the Deep State’s alliance with other
powerful sectors: the media, Hollywood, charities and non-profits,
public schools and universities, religious organizations, medical,
scientific and financial institutions, and multinational corporations.
This phase can be painful, as you discover that “those you trust the
most” (in Q’s phrase) are deceiving you. Beloved celebrities, religious
leaders, doctors, educators, innovators, and do-gooders are all in on
- The third phase of
The Great Awakening is perhaps the most painful of all. The people who
rule us are not merely amoral creatures who view us as collateral
damage in their drive for money and power. It’s scarier than that. The
potentates we serve are actively trying to harm us. That’s their goal.
We’re under coordinated attack.
Where We Go One We Go All (WWG1WGA):
Q’s most famous phrase expresses the worldwide egalitarian nature of
the movement. Every country is suffering from the system’s
oppression, and the whole world will benefit from a rebirth of freedom.
In this unique movement, anonymous citizens work in collaboration with
the highest-ranking military leaders and the president, and everyone’s
contributions are valued. When commenters on the board have thanked Q
for his service, Q has replied that no one is above and no one is
below. “We work for you.”
These people are sick. Perhaps
the most difficult aspect of The Great Awakening is coming to terms
with the depravity of our rulers, whom Q has called The Cult. Jeffrey
Epstein’s story has helped to awaken people to some of the elite’s
crimes. The mysterious temple on Epstein’s island hints at possible
future revelations that are frightening in their scope. Q followers
believe that The Cult engages in ritual practices that enshrine the
shedding of blood and which prey on the innocence of children. The
sickness in their souls thrives on brutality, war, and terror. These
disclosures will be tough for the public to take.
Trust the plan. The presumed
military leaders who created Q and who protected Trump throughout the
election and presidency have created a precise path to victory. Despite
the seeming chaos of daily events, a steady progression of victories is
taking place. The plan includes offensive maneuvers against the Cult’s
financial power, legal standing, human supply chains, and military
capacity. And, of crucial importance, the plan attacks the Cult’s
ability to control the narrative that shapes what the public believes.
In this high-stakes game of information warfare, Q plays a vital role
by empowering ordinary citizens (like me) to spread the truth.
They want you divided.
The hatred that’s growing between races, classes, age groups,
religions, and political parties is purposely fomented by the Cult. The
more we’re divided and focused on attacking each other, the weaker we
become. Q urges us to stay together and to fight the Cult, not each
They think you’re sheep. The Cult
believes, as Q says, “you’ll follow the stars” – the celebrities in
media, Hollywood, and academia who tell you, in coordinated fashion,
what you’re supposed to think. Their contempt for you makes them
confident they can control you and ensure your surrender to any agenda.
Q, on the other hand, offers only clues and can only be understood by
high-grade critical thinking, spurred by constant crowd-sourced
criticism and reassessment. The essence of the Q movement is to think
Bigger than you can imagine.
Expand your thinking. Q encourages us to reevaluate everything we think
we know. The Cult may date back to ancient times, and through its
powerful families, it might have manipulated historical events in ways
that we haven’t suspected. The Cult may also possess advanced
technology and medical cures that have not been released to the public.
One aspect that may be “bigger than you can imagine” is the
unfathomable scale of theft from our national coffers, as funds for
foreign aid and wars wind up in the Cult’s pockets.
Track resignations. Beneath the
surface, a broad and deep cleansing of corrupt players is taking place.
Q asked us to track resignations to understand the scope of activity.
(Here’s a website that took him up on his request:
www.resignation.info) Resignations, retirements, and unexpected deaths
from major players in politics, media, charities, and corporations all
point to possible deals being made quietly without the public fanfare
of arrests. For me, a notable resignation is Eric Schmidt’s abrupt exit
from Google, which received little media attention. Schmidt resigned on
December 21st, 2017, the same day that President Trump signed an
executive order declaring a national emergency related to “serious
human rights abuse and corruption around the world.” Further context
for Schmidt’s resignation may be inferred from this photo of him in
North Korea, apparently in an advisory role. Standing next to him is
Bill Richardson, former Governor of New Mexico, the state in which
Epstein had a secret ranch. Richardson has been accused by one of
Their need for symbols will be their downfall.
The Cult uses certain symbols over and over again, which may serve some
ritualistic need, but makes them vulnerable to detection. Q followers
are familiar with Y-shaped horns that mimic those of the goat deity
Baphomet, owls, pyramids, one eye encased within a pyramid, red shoes,
bandaged fingers, and other repeating symbols, including the mysterious
black eye that afflicts so many famous people. The Q Army also knows
the coded pedophile symbols listed by the FBI. When Q drew attention to
the design of Epstein’s temple, alert Q followers noticed how similar
it is to the set design of a famous talk show. And the red ring on the
hand of dead terrorist Qassam Soleimani prompted Q followers to compile
images of similar rings on the hands of powerful people. An
excellent source for understanding how these symbols are incorporated
into pop culture targeting the young through music videos, TV shows and
movies can be found at vigilantcitizen.com.
Nothing can stop what is coming.
Nothing. Now comes the pain. The headlines on any given day may
sound discouraging for those who want justice to prevail. But these
setbacks are temporary, as a juggernaut of justice heads our way. As Q
likes to say: We have it all. Massive amounts of irrefutable evidence
await the criminals who try to evade their reckoning in court. For
those who worry about Trump’s ability to overcome impeachment, election
fraud, and assassination attempts, Q assures us: Patriots in control.
And no legal tricks can help the criminals escape the ultimate judgment
of public disgust. Q promises us that the day is coming when they
can’t walk down the street.
You are the news now. The “fake news” decried by President Trump
is losing credibility and audience by the day. Q has exposed the 4 A.M.
drops that provide the daily talking points to media personnel, so they
can all parrot the same propaganda. Q has also named various
journalists whom he says take bribes. The media is concentrated within
six powerful companies; on the other hand, the Q army is vast,
voluntary, and anonymous. Q assures us that our efforts to disseminate
the truth through social media and conversations with family and
friends are having a huge impact. We are the news now.
We know what happens in the end.
God wins. Many times, Q has asked us to pray. He’s quoted the famous
Biblical lines of Ephesians 6:12, “For we wrestle not against flesh and
blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers
of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high
places.” We’re living through monumental times. It’s comforting that Q
believes that if we work together, God wins.
Additional Information about Q by Alex Paterson
I concur entirely with what the author of the above news story says about Q.
Below is some additional information about Q I’ve gleaned over the last few years.
- President Trump.
Q occasionally signs off as Q+ and its become very obvious associated
with the context of those drops that Q+ is Trump himself.
- Deep State. Q identifies the
enemy of the Trump Administration as being the ‘Deep State’, but I
don’t believe this is the full picture. Trump’s adversaries are far
bigger than a nefarious group of corrupt human beings in various positions of power
throughout the world that comprise the ‘Deep State’. Trump’s
adversaries are a Cabal of beings comprising both human beings and
negatively orientated multi-dimensional Extraterrestrials (ETs), but
Trump and Q don’t mention this state of affairs because such concepts
are a bridge too far for most citizens to comprehend at this point in
time. ‘Deep State’, which comprises mainly human beings, is
simply just the administrative arm of ‘The Cabal’. For more on
this issue see a report I’ve written titled 'The Cabal'.
- Extraterrestrials. Q has alluded to the
existence of Extraterrestrials in Q post # 937 in which he said “We are not
alone”. This statement could of course refer to God, but I think
it refers to both God and ETs. The significance of this statement will
become obvious as time goes on.
- Arrests. Many people following
Q are frustrated that there have been no high profile arrests to
date. There are a number of reasons for this state of affairs which include:
- The patriots backing
President Trump first have to clean out the corrupt elements embedded within the
various intelligence organisations, the investigative organisations such as the FBI, the Dept of Justice (DoJ),
the Judiciary, the Congress and the Senate (both State and
Federal) and the various arms of government. This is a huge task
because the Cabal has literally had hundreds of years to embed
corrupt and compromised individuals into these positions of
power. Having said that, it is clear the process of “draining the
swamp” is well underway, but none of this is being reported by
mainstream media (MSM) because MSM is controlled by the Cabal. It
is worth noting that to date (January 2020) there are well over 140,000 sealed court
documents on the books within the US Justice System, with the vast
majority of those documents being Sealed Indictments. Normal for
a year is 1000 to 2000 sealed court documents. Of further significance
is the fact that none of the contents of any of the sealed
indictments has been leaked to the public which is an astounding feat
considering that many, if not most, would involve the impaneling of
Grand Juries etc. Further, a sealed indictment can involve
numerous people, so we are talking upwards of half a million people,
which is clearly a monumental task to process. This
process will take years. Most of the corrupt people associated
with these sealed indictments will be offered some sort of plea deal in
which they agree to testify against those above them in exchange for
the dropping of charges against them and/or receiving a reduced
sentence. One can expect those lower down in the food chain of
the Swamp to fall over themselves to cooperate with the prosecuting
authorities considering many of those currently indicted will being
facing life in prison or worst still the death penalty associated with
acts of treason. Remember, the penalty for treason in America is
death. It is the belief of myself and many other 'truthers' that
ex Senator John McCain and ex President George Herbert Walker Bush Snr
were both tried and executed by secret military tribunal in accordance
with President Trump’s Executive Order EO 13825: 2018 'Amendments to the Manual for Courts-Martial, United States'.
This Executive Order clarifies the use of Military Tribunals to try and
convict civilians engaged in acts of espionage and treason.
- Team Trump first has
to demonstrate in the court of public opinion just how evil and corrupt
the people associated with The Deep State are so that when the mass
arrests do occur the event won’t result in civil unrest from the
general public. Most of the public, both in America and the rest of the
world, have no concept of just how evil those that they look up to
really are. Thus for example, just about all our favourite Hollywood
actors (male and female) have been involved in depraved acts of
pedophilia up to and including the satanic ritual abuse, torture and
murder of children. Think about that for a moment. Jeffrey Epstein’s operation
on Little St James Island was just the tip of the iceberg. A
significant number of politicians, senior public servants, senior
business executives and university academics worldwide are all involved
in ‘Crimes Against Humanity’ and know that they will be brought to
justice at some stage in the future under the auspices of President Trump’s
Executive Order number EO 13818: 'Blocking the Property of Persons Involved in Serious Human Rights Abuse or Corruption'.
This is the main reason why a significant number of senior executives
of multinational companies have resigned over the past year and why
Donald Trump is being constantly vilified by the Main Stream Media
(MSM). Many of those associated with the Swamp are not just
fighting for their livelihood, they are literally fighting for their
- The other reason
there have been no mass arrests to date is that the Deep State Swamp
players (especially the minnows) are panicking and in the process are
engaging in extremely stupid acts such as the circus associated
with the attempt to impeach President Trump in early 2020 and the
current Covid19 'plandemic'. As Q has said on a number of
occasions “Never Interfere With an Enemy While He’s in the
Process of Destroying Himself”. (e.g. Q Post # 1794 & # 3466) Q has also pointed
out on numerous occasions that “These people are stupid”. (Q has made this statement in 39 times as of March 2020)
- US Military. One issue few
people understand is why senior US military officers took the decision
to back Trump for the Presidency in 2016. However, the reason for
their decision is actually quite simple. All US military
personnel swear an oath “to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, both foreign and domestic.”
They do not swear an oath to protect the government of USA. It
would appear the officer corp of the US Navy and US Marines take that
oath very seriously and as such these two arms of the US military are
the main military forces backing and protecting Trump. Rumour has
it that the US Airforce Officer Corp has now come on board with the US
Navy and Marines in protecting and upholding the US Constitution and
are now backing Trump. The US Army officer corp is apparently
split and as such not yet to be trusted. Trump also has the
backing and control of most of the various States' National Guard
Regiments as well as US Special Forces. Under the terms of the
aforementioned military oath it is the responsibility of the US Armed
Forces to overturn any Government in the USA that has become overtly
corrupt with regard to the clauses associated with US Constitution.
(something that should have happened decades ago, but I digress. … ) Q
has posted a number of times the following passage from the US Declaration of Independence
which points out that it is the duty of both both US citizens in general
and US military personnel in particular to remove a corrupt civilian government under certain circumstances:
- “That whenever any
Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right
of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new
Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its
powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their
Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments
long established should not be changed for light and transient causes;
and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more
disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves
by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long
train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object
evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their
right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide
new Guards for their future security.”
NOTE: All US politicians and members of the judiciary also swear an
oath to uphold and defend the US Constitution, but it is apparent that
most do not adhere to that oath and as such are engaged to varying
degrees in acts of treason. As mentioned earlier, the penalty for
treason in the US is death and they know it.
- Pedophilia. Whilst US military personnel don't seem to have much of a problem
with killing people (innocent or otherwise), it would appear they do draw
the line at the ritual torture and sacrificial murder of children. Q has
indicated on numerous occasions that a significant part of the campaign
to "drain the swamp" is to "save the children". Thus for example
Q stated in post # 1964 “Children are being kidnapped, tortured, raped, and sacrificed in the name of PURE EVIL”.
Pedophilia is the glue that the Cabal uses to maintain control over all
personnel associated with the Deep State, either because those members
are so depraved they have willingly engaged in the ritual rape, torture and
sacrificial murder of children, or have been unwittingly compromised associated with the same and
subsequently subjected to blackmail to carry out the bidding of the
- Q's Cryptic Posts. Q’s posts are nearly always cryptic for three reasons:
- Q often shares
information with the public that is classified, but must do so in a
manner that does not breach national security laws. He does this
by posing cryptic questions on the Q message board in which teams of
‘Anons’ reading the board subsequently go out and research for
information that is in the public domain. The ‘Anons' then
connect the dots and post their interpretation of the subject back on
the Q Board and if Q re-posts their interpretation that is seen as
confirmation they are on the right track. (e.g. Q post # 3500 in which Q "confirmed" an assertion by an Anon that structures at Epstein Island are part of an Subterranean Ventilation System)
- Q’s posts are closely
followed by Deep State players in order to glean what the inner circle of the Trump Administration is up
to. The Q team knows this of course and from time to time Q posts
disinformation in order to disorientate and mislead the Deep State
players and observe their reactions. Q subsequently clarifies the
situation at a later date by saying “disinformation is
necessary” (e.g. Q Posts # 128, 158, 1685). There is great irony in the fact that all the surveillance mechanisms
put in place by the Cabal over the past 100 years to keep tabs on the
general population have been turned against them by the military patriots backing
President Trump. It is for this reason that it has become virtually impossible for the
Cabal to coordinate their attacks on the patriots in secret because the
NSA collects and analyses all means of communication, both digital and
analogue. As Q said on 14th January 2018 in Q Post # 520; “We see all . We hear all.” The CIA is a "civilian intelligence agency” and
is almost completely controlled by the Cabal despite the fact that many
CIA personnel are themselves not corrupt. By contrast, the NSA is
controlled by the US military and as such is now totally controlled by
the patriots backing President Trump. Further, Military Intelligence doesn’t leak.
The primary reason the NSA was setup in the first place was to monitor
the CIA. The CIA will eventually be disbanded by the Trump
Administration and its functions transferred to the NSA.
- Q posts often
comprise arcane acronyms and symbols which are indecipherable at the
time of posting, but subsequently become clarified by events months
later and serve to prove to Q followers the authenticity of Q. Q has made the statement “future proves past” 38 times as of March 2020. These are what is known as "Q proofs”. As Q has quite rightly pointed
out on numerous occasions; when does it become “mathematically impossible” with regard to so
called coincidences involving Q drops. (statement made 24 times by Q as of March 2020) A good example of this
sort of thing was Q’s reference to John McCain in which he posted on 25 July 2018 in post # 1706 a
meme of McCain (aka "no name") with his hands up in the air and
the words “No name returning to headlines”. Thirty days
later to the minute McCain was pronounced dead. Q then posted on the 27
August 2018 in post # 1933 the words; “Suicide weekend? Hands up?  [0:28]
Impossible? Coincidence? We are in control. BIG week ahead. Q”. The implication is clear; Q knew the time McCain would pass
on from this mortal coil to the minute thirty days earlier because
McCain was tried and executed for treason. This was one of the more famous
“Q proofs”, but there have been many others over the past two years.
- NOTE: When ask by an
Anon on 31 August 2018 what really happened to McCain, Q stated
in Post # 2001; “To preserve the Republic- (Some) things must remain
BURIED. Q” .
- Mainstream Media. Mainstream Media
(MSM) is almost entirely controlled by the Cabal and that includes
government owned media organisations such as the British BBC and Australian
ABC. For this reason Q was initially ignored by the MSM, but when
the Q phenomena became too big to ignore they switched tactics on a
single night and reported world-wide Q as being a “right wing
conspiracy theory” in an attempt to discredit the phenomenon. For
more on this subject you may like to read a report I wrote on this
subject titled 'Reliable Sources of Information'.
- Project Looking Glass. Q mentioned "Project Looking Glass" in Q Post 3585 on 12 Nov 2019 in which he said; "Project Looking Glass? Going Forward in Order to Look Back. Q".
This is a very significant post because Q is alluding to a technology
revealed by numerous Secret Space Program whistle-blowers who all claim that
participants can go both forward and back in 'time' in order to view
potential outcomes as well as manipulate events which then affect the
present. Australian academic, Dr Michael Salla, has written an excellent
commentary regarding this post which I highly recommend.
- Praying Medic. In
my opinion the
best decodes and interpretation of Q posts are those done by an
American citizen named Dave Hayes who goes by his internet identity of
‘Praying Medic’. Dave released the first of a series of books he
is writing chronicling the Q phenomena on 30 January 2020.
- Q Drops Websites. There are a number of websites listing all of Q’s drops. The one I use is Qanon News.
- Fox News re Q. Fox news anchor, Jesse Watters, interviewed University of Miami
Associate Professor, Joseph Ucsinski, about the Q phenomena on 7th
December 2019. Although both the interviewer and interviewee
expressed scepticism about the Q phenomena, the interview provides a
succinct video introduction into Q. (4 mins) Interestingly enough
Professor Ucsinski made the statement during the interview that his
department's research indicated that "about
10% of the US population know of and are supportive of Q."
- NOTE: Jesse Watters would appear to have become an avid 'Q' follower following his above interview of the 7th December 2019
- Trump's Re-election. Trump will be
re-elected in November 2020 and once that occurs we can expect the
gloves to come off. It will be a sight to behold because the
subsequent cleanup will be world wide and will involve the arrest and
prosecution of literally hundreds of thousands of people.
