Reposted from Twitter (with updates).
Trump’s presidency started falling apart before it even started… and try as they may, his damage control team hasn’t been able to keep the pieces together. While rumors of FBI indictments against Trump associates were being widely discussed in the Fall of 2017, TRUMP’s social media director propagated a competing narrative that, with the assistance of InfoWars Operatives and others, grew into a disturbing political movement that inspired several acts of domestic terrorism.
For those who don’t know what #QAnon is: Dude(s) claiming #Q-clearance post coded messages on stupid/chan/; Dude(s) claiming critical-thinking super powers decode those messages; Gov secrets (The Plan) are magically revealed about Trump killing the Deep State Cabal.
Initially, #Q Operative(s) would ask a series of leading questions, which I like to call a “Socratic circle jerk”. The questions were designed, IMO, to establish what their targets were willing to believe.
Their very first set of questions were posted in a 4chan discussion thread about the indictment rumors. “Guess who’s going to jail?” Having targeted MAGA, the answers people came up with: Hillary & the Pedophiles!
#QAnon followers then took the shape of two camps. One, obsessed with #PizzaGate, #Pedogate, baby cannibalism, pedophile priests, and Satanic sex cults. It evolved into a Moral Panic Op, the likes of which the Soviet Union launched against us during the Cold War.
The other took on a political bent, obsessed with conspiracy theories about Clinton crimes and Deep State coverups. Most of these were things that the Bannon-Mercer propaganda machine came up with for Clinton Cash… but with some treason in the mix + … S. Rich.
Once #QAnon operatives were able to establish what people were willing to talk themselves into… de-coders stepped in and started shaping “The Plan”. But before “The Plan” could be set in stone they had to establish credibility.
Enter InfoWars: archive.is/TLigz.
I’ve shared that link before, but with little comment. I’d like to point out, now, that Jerome CORSI claims he MET with actual people IRL… said that he was approached, informed, and recruited to participate in a military coup. He even wrote a book establishing the backstory for this Junta: Killing the Deep State.
I’d also like to point out that Alex JONES held conference calls with alleged government “whistle blowers” on his show, giving QAnon the appearance of legitimacy. An all-night live broadcast, streamed when Trump bombed that empty Syrian airbase was one such occasion.
Jerome CORSI then became the premier #QAnon decoder… thus, guiding the narrative. There is a huge collection of vids about his “decoding” on youtube: youtube.com/results?search…
Summary of “The Plan”: TRUMP would deploy military troops to the Southern Border. A crisis would somehow happen there, that would justify the declaration of martial law. Under martial law, Trump would round up enemies who he hadn’t already secretly whisked away to Gitmo. Tribunals & executions would be carried out.
Note: “The Plan” took shape long before the migrant Exodus from Central America , and long before Trump announced he was sending the National Guard to the border.
There are small variations. The Cabal could be the OBAMA/HRC regime, the Globalists, Satanists, Elitists, Liberals, whatev Bogeyman. And the crisis that would trigger the highly anticipated Police State could be caused be a migrant horde, Antifa, Commies, Liberals, or an army of angry women.
Mantras of “Trust the Plan” were recited whenever things didn’t go as they liked (often). That mantra evolved into “Be the Plan” after General MATTIS screwed up their Southern Border predictions (#OperationRedCastle)… prompting the #Q Faithful to encourage revolution ala #YellowVest. Unsuccessful attempts were made for a mass protest of General FLYNN’s sentencing… a failure they attributed to: “Trump supporters have jobs, and can’t just take off to DC whenever they like.”
Some of the #Q Faithful who watch InfoWars have adopted Pro-Russia positions, and believe that TRUMP has partnered w/ PUTIN to save the world. CORSI and the rest of those InfoWars jerks seem to love Russia… or at the least, are in favor of Détente. JONES has even had Aleksandr DUGIN on his show, and he has been a guest on DUGIN’s.
Here’s an example of the way CORSI conducted his #QAnon decode briefings. Those people, in turn, would do their own videos or social media posts to dissemiate. This is an important one, IMO. Good stuff starts at minute 8.
That video, actually, is probably not a good example of his ‘usual’ stuff. I think his followers thought it was pretty boring. But it should be super interesting to us who are aware of the Kremlin agenda…. since he claims to be the one who set up the TRUMP-KISSINGER pre-election meeting… which he says was about the Middle East and sounds like a violation of the Logan Act to me.
Here is one of his more typical “decodes”. Note that he continues to speak as if he personally knows #Q. Also, he implies that Admiral ROGERS was part of an earlier #Qanon coup d’état plot against the OBAMA administration.
Then, something happened in May…. and the whole InfoWars crew started freaking out and distancing themselves from the Op. I wonder why? ?
Mueller Subpoenas Jerome Corsi, An Alex Jones & Roger Stone Associate Jerome Corsi is the hateful, lying schmuck who helped birth the smearing of John Kerry’s time on a swift boat in Viet Nam, trafficked in birtherism and was involved in other ugly rightwing ratfuckeri…
Sounds like Jerome Corsi is trying to cut a deal with the FBI. Interesting. Exactly, who were those Generals that were supposedly planning a coup? https://t.co/okk2Q4KU2x

Very odd #QAnon troll Op starts up, calling CORSI and associates #FakeMaga…. perhaps an attempt to sever ties.
Did you hear the one about Traitor Jones, Corsi, Posobiec, and Cernovich being a CIA Clown Op? #AllTheKingsMen
— Naomi 🎎 #Biden2020 #Tulsi2024 (@girlyGRRRL) November 20, 2018
That #FakeMaga Op happened, btw, shortly after CORSI said he’s not taking the deal, explaining that things had changed and he needed to change strategies.
And here we go… Jack POSOBIEC freaking out, just like he did when FLYNN got indicted and he thought the FBI had tapped his phones… after all his #pizzagate bullshit, acting like he had nothing to do with #QAnon… vowing to get to the bottom of things. Except that, he accidentally confesses that he’s been in on the whole thing from the beginning (but forgot, then suddenly remembered?).
And here he is… kind of sort of getting to the bottom of things. This article, by the way, was deleted by OAN… but I grabbed the cache: archive.is/4u4HJ
While OAN deleted the article, the video embedded in it is still on youtube for the moment. I downloaded a copy of it. You should too. It provides PROOF that MICROCHIP is the guy who has been dropping #QAnon breadcrumbs.
Based on the fact that POSOBIEC acted so excited when TRUMP noticed and re-tweeted him, I’m gonna guess that, while he and FLYNN go WAY back and some call him a Roger STONE protégé, he is NOT in Trump’s inner circle… and that he had/has no clue about MICROCHIP’s true identity. Had he been paying attention to what the Cold Warriors have been doing since the election, he might’ve known that we doxxed the mother fucker a while ago, and he should have thought twice about throwing MICROCHIP under the bus.
Microchip’s real name is Justin McCONNEY (archive.is/FLXE1), and he’s been working as Donald TRUMP’s personal social media director since 2011 (archive.is/oj7Fl). And here you’ll find more background on official work McCONNEY did for the Trump campaign.
In fact… a #QAnon Operative posted photographs meant to prove that he was either TRUMP, or someone working directly with him… and CORSI, who actually knows TRUMP personally, claimed early on that the whole thing was being coordinated with the President.
If there is any doubt about their intentions… Alex JONES stated publicly that it was their job to disseminate #Q info to the people, TO MOBILIZE THEM.
Chat logs reveal that, during the planning stage, #QAnon Operatives studied:
- CIA PsyOp strategies for fomenting civil unrest and uprising;
- A political novel (Q), in which question-based propaganda was used to push people to extremes, and to secure power by undermining political opponents;
- “Avakian” style methods meant for starting a revolution.
Is it any wonder how such tactics, which included stories about repeated attempts on the President’s life, would radicalize and inspire followers to send letter bombs to Trump’s list of enemies, shoot up a synagogue that provides assistance to migrant caravans, and try to blow up the Hoover Dam?
These logs also reveal that #QAnon is not their only active measures campaign, and that they have even infiltrated and are exerting influence with Antifa groups.
I find it interesting that the #Q Faithful like to call Hillary an “enemy combatant” and somehow think that this statement from KAVANAUGH not only makes her one, but would also give Trump justification for suspending her civil rights to summarily execute her. Interesting… because… if other Justices agree with him about our “war time” status… this would make all their seditious plotting and advocating for a #Q-Junta totally illegal.
Watch that video embedded above again, starting at minute 7… through minute 8… when I’m pretty sure CORSI recognized that JONES just said something extremely incriminating.

By now, everyone should know that the STORMER TROLL ARMY was responsible for turning Matt Furie’s Pepe into a racist MEME. What you might not know, is that this effort was launched by Andrew ANGLIN himself, when he created the KEK myth that proclaimed Pepe the Frog as a manifestation of the God of Chaos that early 20th century Nazis allegedly worshipped.
The SPLC reported that the myth was first posted in August of 2015 on the now defunct website, Atlantic Centurion. It was then reposted on ANGLIN’s Daily Stormer (onion.link archive), but later deleted.
For a while now, I’ve suspected that Andrew ANGLIN is a Kremlin agent… mostly because of what I’ve read in White Supremacy forums from Old Guard American Neo-Nazis who have claimed, for years, that ANGLIN lives in Russia and is on the FSB’s payroll.
Assuming that ANGLIN has indeed been working for the FSB, the Kremlin’s #infeKtion Op may have started a lot earlier than people think. ANGLIN started organizing a new, private forum for his STORMER TROLL ARMY in October 2014 (which he said he would be running from outside the country). He announced that the new forum was needed for major Ops he was planning and wanted to be successful outside of /pol/. The very first set of orders he gave to would-be-members of this new troll forum, was to continue spreading the Ebola-Chan viral MEME.
Meet #infeKtion Patient Zero. The original Ebola-Chan image was created by an anime artist, in response to global panic triggered by reports of infected nurses bringing the Ebola virus onto Western soil. Like Pepe, she was co-opted by the Alt-Right and turned into a viral hate MEME.
The main stated purpose of the STORMER TROLL ARMY was (and still is), “… to make trouble for our enemies, the filthy Christ-Killing Jews.” Originally used as a viral MEME for spreading xenophobia, it didn’t take much for them to turn Ebola-Chan into a Nazi icon.
Discussions about the MEME were where the narratives took shape; Evil Whites were using Ebola to genocide Blacks, evil Blacks were trying to sneak the infection onto Western soil to genocide Whites, it’s Us versus Them, and of course — the Ebola holocaust was somehow, a Jewish conspiracy.
Fortunately, Ebola-Chan wasn’t very popular outside of /pol/. ANGLIN’s Death Goddess barely hit the mainstream when The Washington Post ripped her to shreds.
The uninitiated didn’t think it was funny to make fun of death, and were disgusted by the sexualization of a disease (masturbation rituals were involved, but I’m not about to go into detail about that).
The very first MEME War actually happened in 2015, when alternative social media sites launched their campaign to stop Ebola-Chan. The whole thing was quite brilliant, and I think it would actually make for a good propaganda case study.
It started with “Anti-Ebola-Chan” profile stickers, and discussions about how Ebola-Chan worshippers were a bunch of sick necro-pedophiles who circle jerked (homo-erotically) to Lolita pics. This phase was actually quite effective at putting people off of the whole idea, and successfully quarantined the viral MEME’s spread.
Phase two included a counter MEME character, which sort of failed. Images of battles between Ebola-Chan and a new anime nurse called Cure-Chan began circulating. The intention was to cure Ebola-Chan worshippers by killing off the character. But the images were so violent that 4-chan moderators actually banned Ebola-Cure battle MEMES from the site. Might as well… since some in the Death Cult were actually starting to like them.
Then came ZMAPP-Chan (who I’ve chosen as my site mascot)… an already active MEME spreading awareness of the Ebola vaccine on Facebook… recruited for the “Stop Ebola-Chan” cause. The Death Cult lost faith in their Goddess as soon as they discovered that there was an effective real life cure for the real life virus… rendering her not so powerful after all.
The STORMER TROLL ARMY then turned their sights on Pepe. I suppose they learned a valuable lesson with Ebola-Chan, and made sure that their new mascot was one who was already mainstreamed.
Unsurprisingly, ANGLIN and other Alt-Right propagandists started anti-vaxxing shortly after Ebola-Chan’s fall from grace. As it turns out, vaccinations have a profound affect on the human psyche. Besides subduing xenophobia, studies at Yale discovered that vaccinations can even turn conservatives into liberals.
Andrew ANGLIN still uses her image on his website whenever there’s a new Ebola outbreak. But for the most part, ZMAPP-Chan has knocked her so far off her pedestal that hardly anyone pays attention to weak-sauce Ebola-Chan anymore.

“In the year 2016 there was a sense that people were losing their minds… and no one knew why… until now.”
If you haven’t seen BrainDead yet, you really must. It’s a brilliant allegory for the insanity of contemporary politics. The hidden message? While engaged in political warfare, remember to enjoy life. Eat, drink, and be merry, y’all… before you lose your minds!
The story: An evil alien force is infecting people’s brains… causing them to be so obsessed with politics that they are pushed to extremes. And the only way to fight off the infection, is to force yourself to stop thinking so much and do something to increase your dopamine.
It’s written as a comedy, yet is tragic at the same time… because the ridiculous things that happen on the show are also actually happening in real life. Aliens may not be hijacking our brains, but viral campaigns that trigger and gamify our dopamine receptors certainly do affect the way we think and behave.
Personally, I can’t bring myself to completely step away from politics. The Culture War is real and I can’t ignore it. At the same time, I really don’t want to lose myself… I don’t want to forget who I am… I don’t want to lose my perspective… and I don’t want to end up losing the very things I’m fighting to preserve.
And so I’m really glad I watched this show. It forced me into self-reflection and helped me realize that if I don’t want to lose my mind… if I don’t want to lose touch with what keeps my heart and soul alive… I can’t let politics become an all-pervasive part of my life.
Moreover, I’ve learned that seeking a dopamine fix in more life affirming activities — such as, eating more chocolate, drinking more wine, getting more sunshine, sharing more hugs, listening and dancing to more music, baking, and hitting the gym — not only boosts my immunity to political obsession, but also feels so good, in the here and now.
