Well, at least we're getting some good data on what this thread is really about.

I also find it amusing that an "anti-elitist" conspiracy theory is propagated by way of preying on people's fear of being considered too stupid to be able to read the "signs" left by a sooper-sekrit-jeenyus who won't reveal their identity.

But, like, George Soros, man!

The replies of some of your fellow critics indicate they have no difficulty comprehending it

It can also seem cryptic to both you and the Q-tee-pies you keep spamming us with:

December 5, December 5....say many Q followers, expecting something significant coming December 5


Maybe, maybe not.

Neon says its not about December 5. Something different, he says. Digging and digging, with help from an Anon or two, Neon dug up another interpretation, plus all kinds of little known stuff on sundry swamp critters.



Originally Posted by Bubba View Post

I was skeptical at post 456. Still skeptical at post 562.

What did Q mean by "D5", Bubba? Should be clear to someone who isn't a newbie and who wishes to understand it.

If your "handle" means grabbing onto identity politics instead of arguments, I doubt you have much to say about the merits of any argument.

In my pov, this Q nonsense is another example of a demographic that believes whatever "news" they hear w/o question if it fits their confirmation bias.

They're less than a half-step ahead of the idiots that buy into christian imminent apocalypse prediction ********. It never happens, but when the next prediction comes down the pike they're all a' flutter over gettin' to meet Mr. Christ and his mom.

The handle of the Q fanboy in this thread is most appropriate.

On a side note, in the real world there are suspicious events such as this one in Italy:

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-47595320

Quote:
Imane Fadil, 33, died on 1 March in a Milan hospital, a month after being admitted with stomach pains. At the time she said she had been poisoned.

Italian media say she may have been poisoned with a radioactive substance.

She was a key witness against Mr Berlusconi, who was accused of paying for sex with an underage prostitute.
What separates this from Low I-Q is that there is a dead body of a woman who was going to testify against a former Prime Minister. Maybe a coincidence, I don't know how readily available radio active substances are at the corner Italian markets.

You have to admire the BBC though, shading the article with this quote:

Quote:
Speaking on Saturday, Mr Berlusconi said: "It's always a pity when a young person dies. I never met this person, never talked to her.

"What I read of her statements made me think that everything was invented, absurd," he said.
There is nothing like this in the Low I-Q anon crap-show.

Then there's this real-world ditty that the Qanon idiots seem to miss:

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/brain-t...inkId=64915204

Quote:
Scott Pelley: An energy weapon--

Mark Lenzi: Absolutely.

Scott Pelley: What sort of energy is this that we're talking about?

Mark Lenzi: I believe it's RF, radio frequency energy, in the microwave range.

A clue that supports that theory was revealed by the National Security Agency in 2014. This NSA statement describes such a weapon as a "high-powered microwave system weapon that may have the ability to weaken, intimidate, or kill an enemy over time without leaving evidence." The statement goes on to say "…this weapon is designed to bathe a target's living quarters in microwaves." The NSA disclosed this in a worker's compensation case filed by former NSA employee Mike Beck.
So while the Low I-Q gang are worked up about Hillary and a black President, there's real world stuff going on.

Anyway, back to vague accusations about emails...

A random Q Anon says:

Quote:
John McCain was part of the Obama IRS Scandal targeting Tea Party groups!

Even Tom Fitton says, "I can't tell you how significant this is!"

John McCain staffer told the IRS to 'ruin' "Tea Party" by over auditing groups.

@JudicialWatch uncovered IRS Docs that Reveal McCain Staffer Urged Lois Lerner and Obama IRS to “audit so many that it becomes financially ruinous.”

Trump tweets randomly about John McCain over the weekend, and Q-Anon has thoughts about him on Monday. Crazy.

Wow, Low I-Q "dropped" a story about John McCain from 2014.

How is this a prediction again?

Just my opinion, but the beauty of this thing is that even if there should be indictments/hearing/whatever actions taken against any of those on Q's naughty list, we all can still say it has/had nothing to do with Q's predictions, no matter how closely details match Q's predictions, since Oct 2017. Lucky guess. End of story. We all knew it was coming so Q dont matter.

A guy, who recently murdered someone, having an interest in a particular conspiracy theory and scribbling things on his hands...

...hold on...

...checking...

...nope, it in no way validates anything.

ETA: Meanwhile, the Steele Dossier gets more and more credible all the time. Just to demonstrate what actual spooks are capable of in terms of credibility of their body of work, I offer that stark contrast.

It's a Steele product.

The first people who paid him for opposition research were Republican primary candidates, by the way.

P.S. way to entirely miss the point.

This guy is clearly the dumbest New Yorker in the history of the East Coast. The cops think he committed murder over the guy's niece, which means he gave no thought about who his victim was.

They don't prison cells that secure. The Gambinos will kill him over a period of hours, and the guards will all swear they didn't hear or see a thing.

Obviously Frank Cali would be considered an intellectual among the Qanon crowd.
