My wife says to me "I have to pee". Being the smartass I am, I says, "I have two Qs". Which then led me to ponder if I have a Q problem. Maybe like alcoholics or overeaters, I need to go to a Q anonymous meeting. This led me to further ponder if there is a Q-anon anonymous.

Some time ago I asked Bubba when he would admit he was wrong about QAnon, and that the whole thing was a hoax. He said in this post when Trump left office without the mass arrest of Deep Staters and child sex cannibals and so on.

That hasn’t happened yet, and Trump will no longer be President in about 26 hours.

I bit-bucketed Bubba and am not interested in whatever excuse he will predictably make to avoid responsibility for the complete failure of the second-hand claims he’s been lapping up and regurgitating for years, but I thought some of the regulars would enjoy a marker.

Wonder how many Q people will take a real red pill tomorrow. You know, accept the hard truth that they got scammed by a bunch of 4chan trolls.

No doubt Qanon conspiracies will go on, but I wonder if the Biden inauguration and departure of Trump will be a major derail point for many.

Some will wake up. Most will just traipse on to the next stupid thing. "It's all part of the plan" is the common rallying cry of idiotic cults, and a convenient disconnect from reality.

Alternatively, he was being sarcastic. Very, very sarcastic.

I wonder if significant numbers of Q cranks will, rather than accepting that it is total bunk, come to the darker conclusion that it was all true, but the "deep state" won.

Especially if Q goes silent. They may just assume that the last chance for freedom loving patriots was defeated by the evil forces. Such despair could easily lead to violence.

Some people will buy into any "hot" conspiracy theory, even if contradicts previously held conspiracy theories.
I am sure a lot of 9/11 Truthers became Qanon supporters, despite the vastly different politcal
views underlying them.

Prediction: Q has to remain silent while the feces is hitting the proverbial fan. He has to cook up a palatable reset and will return, possibly with that 'the Deep State won the battle but the war goes on' shtick. He's having too much fun with these saps to disappear.

Maybe he'll try 'Q went down so I'm taking over as Q2'. Or maybe QT. That would be more fun.

A little going-away present for his fans: Trump pardons self-proclaimed “Leninist” Steve Bannon, arrested aboard a Chinese billionaire’s yacht for wire fraud - specifically, stealing money from Trump supporters who thought they were helping “build the wall”.

Thanks, suckers!

Did ‘Q’ predict that one?

I thought the way the WH report phrased it was... interesting

Quote:
Stephen K. Bannon – President Trump granted a full pardon to Stephen Bannon. Prosecutors pursued Mr. Bannon with charges related to fraud stemming from his involvement in a political project. Mr. Bannon has been an important leader in the conservative movement and is known for his political acumen.
'A political project'? A bit vague. And 'known for his political acumen'? So how come he got caught?

Also worth noting, while all other pardons listed had at least a handful of supporters listed, Bannon had none.

As with other cults that make bold prophesies that face-plant hard, it will probably boil off all but the nuttiest, leaving a lesser number of ultra hard-core believers.

This is an interesting article about the guy many people think is Q. He shares my suspicion that QAnon is a disinformation campaign run or at least guided by foreign actors. (I think Russia.)

‘Are you QAnon?’: One Trump official’s brush with an internet cult gone horribly wrong [politico.com]
Quote:
Since 2018, many members of the cult-like group have been convinced that its shadowy leader and founder is actually Ezra Cohen-Watnick, an intelligence specialist who worked in various Defense Department jobs before accepting a senior post on the National Security Council staff soon after President Donald Trump came into office in 2017. Cohen, who was brought in under former national security adviser Michael Flynn, became a figure of controversy when his run-ins with other intelligence officials spilled out into the press.
Quote:
Cohen, who specializes in countering influence of foreign adversaries like Russia and China, says the persistence and sophistication of some of those involved in QAnon have convinced him of a foreign presence in the movement.

“In my professional opinion, being in the intelligence world, it really appeared to be a foreign state actor or a very organized operation,” he said. “I just don’t see that level of sophistication as just an amateur thing.”

But how many really believe that celebrities have cannibal child sex orgies, when they don't actually do anything about them? I mean at least the Pizzagate guy tried to save some kids.

Q very much has a "trust the plan" element. Waiting for some outside force to ride in on a white horse to slay the monsters was the expectation.

If these people start believing that Q failed in this, they may believe it is necessary to personally take direct, violent action.

Doubt it. They are followers, not leaders.

I really admire the 4/8channers that pulled this off though. I mean, when you take it to Satanic pedophile cannibals and your audience doesn't realize that you are just being ridiculous... That's just art.

Aaannnd we’re done.

A silly and obvious 4chan troll metastasized into an insipid, vicious mass delusion. The ultimate failure of the infantile ‘Q’ fantasy has finally arrived, but not before it destroyed families, friendships, and lives, killed people, and damaged American democracy.

Of course, anonymous cowards who pushed this on the Internet will simply walk away, whistling, as they move on to lapping up and regurgitating the next mass of steaming waste.

It’s highly amusing to watch my friends and family begin to grapple with the fact that “the storm” never came. At the same time, it’s also very sad.

Like my wife’s aunt. She blocked me from Facebook because I kept questioning her crazy spoutings regurgitating QBS. At the same time, her husband of 40 years was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and he is rapidly getting worse. She has it in her head that she has the truth and somehow the deep state is punishing her. Before Trump, we got on great with them and it’s sad to see both her descent into crackpottery and his into actual dementia. But it’s also kind of funny to hear her rationalizations and continued insistence that “it’s not over,” and to “trust the plan!” Just this morning, my wife showed me her post about how Biden would not be inaugurated, this was just a way to get Obama, Clinton, Biden, et al in the same place so the National Guard can unseal the indictments and arrest them all.

So your "deep state" stuff must extend over here, 'cos I've spent an hour or so listening to the inauguration and analysis of it on the BBC.

Does this mean it was really Trump in a Biden mask and Pence in a Harris mask? And the soundtrack was re-dubbed to change the names I heard? Or that it wasn't Lady Gaga singing but really Kid Rock?

The thing that always amazed me was the dichotomy of Trump supposedly a victim of the "Deep State" while "Q" was presumably a part of the Deep State too. A part that was going to rise up with DJT in the lead and bring to justice/execute all sorts of evil pedophiles and Democrats. The Deep State at war with the Deep State. There's a difference between comic books and real life.

QAnon believers grapple with doubt, spin new theories as Trump era ends: ‘We all got played'
The administrator of 8kun, the longtime home of the mysterious Q, says it’s time to move on

Craig Timberg

Followers of the extremist ideology QAnon saw their hopes once again dashed Wednesday as President Trump left Washington on the final day of his presidency, without any of the climactic scenes of violence and salvation that the sprawling set of conspiracy theories had preached for years would come.

As Trump boarded Air Force One for his last presidential flight to Florida, many QAnon adherents — some of whom had earlier this month stormed the Capitol in a siege that left at least two QAnon devotees dead and others in jail — began to wonder whether they’d been duped all along.

There's a difference between comic books and real life.
Comic books make more sense than QAnon.
