One of Biden's SS detail is Asian. I noticed him at the Inauguration and again just now at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. This is bound to drive the "Chinese invasion" Q-MAGAs insane.

You must mean more insane! Or maybe he's a Falun Gong Epoch Times plant selected by Q to prepare for The StormTM from within?

Seems like a good place for this.

Liberals should learn from the utter embarrassment of QAnon and not get duped themselves.

Don't fall for BlueAnon. I've seen the clip passing around that has Hillary Clinton speculating that Trump was on the phone with Putin on the day of the Jan 6 riots.

All roads do not, in fact, lead to Russia. If you think Putin was puppet mastering the Jan 6 riots through Trump, kindly get a grip. There's enough bad, real stuff about Trump that it isn't necessary to start spinning up crank theories about how Putin called all the shots.

There was an Asian woman often in the background I thought was USSS. One tell is that they're always scanning the crowd.

Who says this thing has to end?

From the pages of OANN:

A poster named MingleBells:

Quote:
biden is part of the old usa. the one the world bankers controlled. it is considered a foreign entity now. that's why it's fenced off with military around it. biden was inaugurated into this entity. so he's not president of the new usa. which will commence on mar 4.

It's never going to end!!! Mwahahahahahahahahahahha!

Oh I don't doubt that, and find little comfort in it. I don't venture into this section often, there be dragons and whatnot, you know, but the Q factor at a couple shops I do work at had gone up to eleven the last month or so, and I needed answers.
Honestly, what I found here made me sad. Not because of the crazy, I like poking fun at that. What made me sad was, these shops are run by honestly good, very hard working, intelligent, good paying, charitable people, who, for reasons I can't begin to fathom, put credence into this nonsense.
So I'd go in, do my job, hand over an invoice, listen to crazy, get my check, smile and go. I dread what I'll hear next visit.

Whoa. It just dawned on me this morning that QAnon is basically a rehash of the Satanic panic of the 1980s. I read a little about it when Snopes was called the Urban Legends Reference pages, early 2000s.

How's that for recovered memories.

Funny to see it evolve, but it might be at it's most dangerous today.

Bwahahahahahahaha!!!

OVAH!!!

Quote:
Joe Biden’s inauguration on Wednesday marks not only the historic beginning of a new presidency, but also, for countless Americans, the devastating end of a yearslong grift.

For believers of QAnon, the far-right conspiracy theory that holds Donald Trump as a deity-like figure secretly battling a “deep state” cabal of pedophiles who control the government, things weren’t supposed to go down this way. Month after month, year after year, they had been told by “Q,” the group’s shadowy online leader, and Q’s army of social media influencers, that a symbolic “storm” was coming. The mythology held that on Wednesday, at long last, the Bidens, Obamas and Clintons would be rounded up and executed for child sex trafficking, treason and other crimes. Trump, having finally conquered evil, would remain in power.

“WELCOME TO THE GRAND FINALE!!!” someone cheered in a 185,000-member Gab group. “Anyone else wanna puke with excitement?!?!?!” another person asked amid a rapid stream of messages coursing through a 34,000-member Telegram channel. Others salivated over the idea of decapitations and sexual violence against prominent Democrats. Several messages were too grotesque to publish.

“Well this popcorn just got cold,” one QAnon supporter wrote. “When do the arrests start??” another questioned. Still, they continued clinging to hope while counting down the minutes until their long-awaited “great awakening.”

But as noon arrived, and a grinning Biden placed his hand on a Bible to be sworn in as the 46th president of the United States, reality came crashing down.

“I can’t stop crying. ****. Why?” one person pleaded. “It’s over,” another conceded. Some wondered how they could possibly mend their broken relationships with the loved ones they’d pushed away over their obsessions with Q.

Like a flipped switch, the attitude inside online QAnon communities shifted from glee to shock and misery: “NOTHING ******* HAPPENED!!!”; “So now we have proof Q was total ********”; “I feel sick, disgusted and disappointed”; “Have we been duped???”; “You played us all”; “HOW COULD WE BELIEVE THIS FOR SO LONG? ARE WE ALL IDIOTS?”
Why yes, yes you are.

Bwahahahahahahahahahahaha!!

OVAH!!!

I think the Schadenfreude of QAnon heads exploding will offer its gifts for some time to come. Here's some more.

'No plan, no Q, nothing': QAnon followers reel as Biden inaugurated [reuters.com]
Quote:
For three years, adherents of the sprawling QAnon conspiracy theory awaited a so-called Great Awakening, scouring anonymous web postings from a shadowy “Q” figure and parsing statements by former U.S. President Donald Trump, whom they believed to be their champion.

On Wednesday, they grappled with a harsh reality check: Trump had left office with no mass arrests or other victories against the supposed cabal of Satan-worshipping pedophile cannibal elites, especially Democrats, he was ostensibly fighting.

Instead, Democratic President Joseph Biden was calmly sworn into office, leaving legions of QAnon faithful struggling to make sense of what had transpired.

The FC believers are desperate parents caught in an unimaginable nightmare, looking for any twig of hope to hold onto. I don't blame them.

I think the USA authorities have a little bit more work to do on Qanon.

Although the conspiracy spreading is over, now starts the hunting down of Jim Watkins AKA "Q", who is probably still back in the USA after returning in late 2019. (He possibly is legally prevented from returning to the Philippines)


At face value Watkins was probably spreading stories about paedophiles, as his son Ron's business 4Chan distributed paedophile imagery and Jim Watkins live in the Philippines at the time on a farm. He probably simply hated the democrats as a personal thing.

However I think Jim Watkins needs to have a long chat with the FBI to determine if anyone else or any other organisation was pushing him in one direction or the other.

As 'trust the plan' has clearly failed them, perhaps we should call Q diehards 'No Planners'.

There were tweet threads on this, asking who the 'Chinese Agent' was and why he was following Biden around.

The conclusion was that he is Biden's Chinese Govt 'handler' who keeps him 'in line'

Quote:
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Monday that she wants to see if President Trump “was talking to” Russian President Vladimir Putin on “the day that insurgents invaded our Capitol.”

Clinton told Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on the former senator's podcast “You and Me Both” that she hopes to see Trump’s phone records to determine if he spoke with Putin on Jan. 6, the day a mob of his supporters raided the Capitol in deadly riots.

This is the kind of wild, unhinged speculation that I hope the libs don't fall for. It's absurd.

The current Q crisis really puts how much this movement was always a MAGA, pro-Trump movement in stark relief.

4 years of nothing happening and failed predictions, and the movement only grew stronger. The only thing that actually shattered the illusion for these people was the failure of Trump to retain power. For all the talk about saving the children and defeating the cabal, at the end of the day, it was just about Trump.

Q anon is the mysticism wing of the modern American fascist movement.

It's how the Republicans have been winning voters for decades: show them a devil to fear, and promise them a savior. It's just religion all over again. This time, the savior they chose turned out to be the devil in an orangutan costume. Everyone loses.

I've seen that from the Freepers too - I'm not sure if you have to be stupid to be racist but I'm sure the stupidity helps.

So to sum things up:

No unsealed indictments.

No frogmarching.

No Gitmo.

No OBAMAGATE!

No mass arrests of celeb pedevores. (Tom Hanks at the inaugural must've had them swooning)

No Kraken.

No martial law.

No arrest of President Biden, et al, at the inaugural

Just a troll named Q continually gulling the credulous.

Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!

March 5th is the new day when everyone will be arrested and Trump will resume his presidency, apparently.

This is the kind of wild, unhinged speculation that I hope the libs don't fall for. It's absurd.
Absurd is as absurd does. I guess we could just look at the logs. Are they privileged in some way?
