Who Is Q? Mainstream Media Crashes The Party To Take Control Of The Narrative

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    According to mainstream media, Qanon is a 'pro-Trump, alt-right conspiracy theory.' An all-out mainstream media slurry shares this same perspective, regardless of its lack of truth.

  • Reflect On:

    How can the mainstream media accurately report on something it inherently doesn't understand? Does mainstream media coverage of this show their lack of knowledge and understand on the subject?

Who is Q?

If you don’t have a clue, then you are one of the people that the mainstream media is targeting to make sure you get their narrative on the subject first.

But let’s be frank here. Our mainstream friends never wanted to cover the Q-Anon phenomena. Their idea was to not dignify the movement with any recognition, so as not to bring any more attention to it. But that was before Trump rallies across the country started showing a growing number of supporters sporting Q shirts and posters. The Deep State must have figured that not saying something would be more harmful to their grip on the steering wheel than saying something, clumsy as it may look for them to be suddenly weighing in on this matter en masse after being collectively silent for so long.

Nonetheless, they must have thought that if they blanket the airwaves and webwaves with the ‘alt-right Trump supporter conspiracy nut’ angle, they might be able to herd back a few sheep who might stray from the flock if they asked the question ‘Who is Q?’ to people who actually have done their research and had some informed opinions about it.

Mainstream Perception

Mainstream Media really glosses over the inception of Q-Anon and the reasons anyone paid any attention to it in the first place, but they usually do mention some of the most basic facts about the phenomena:

  • An anonymous user named ‘Q’ began posting in the 4chan internet forum entitled “Calm Before the Storm” last October 28th
  • Q claims to be a high-level government insider, or group of insiders, with Q clearance (a United States Department of Energy security clearance with access to classified information)
  • The messages Q posts consists mainly of short leading questions and bits of intel known as “bread crumbs”
  • Many Q followers identify themselves as “bakers” since they attempt to put together the “bread crumbs” into a coherent message
  • The main undercurrent of the messages is that Donald Trump is working with an alliance of political and military insiders to bring down the Deep State

Beyond these basic facts, mainstream media is holding a concerted front on this one point: we don’t know who Q is, but we think probably, likely, with 99.9% certainty, that it’s nonsense. It is ‘conspiracy theory,’ and we know all conspiracy theories are nonsense.

In the mainstream articles I’ve read, it seems as though one mainstream source happily references opinion from other mainstream sources as though they were the golden truth. Here’s an interesting example where a CNN writer calls upon the Daily Beast’s Will Sommer who, the writer opines, ‘has been writing and thinking smartly about QAnon since its inception.’:

CNN:Why has this become such a, well, thing?
Sommer: Unlike something like birtherism or Pizzagate, QAnon is a kind of mega-conspiracy theory that sucks in just about every conspiracy theory you can think of. Pizzagate is part of it, birtherism is part of it — but so is the JFK assassination conspiracy theory, the idea that all these mass shootings have been deep-state false flags, and much more. The vague nature of the Q clues also means that you can sort of imprint whatever your personal issue is onto it.

In one fell swoop, it’s like mainstream media is trying to bring us back to a simpler time when the ridicule bestowed upon ‘conspiracy theory’ was at the height of its influence. One of the real disconnects here is that Sommer implies that most people still don’t believe there was a conspiracy (a plan made by more than one person) to assassinate John F. Kennedy, when we actually live in a time in which a majority of people believe this and other well-known ‘conspiracies’ to be fact. In fact a March poll by Politico reveals that belief in the Deep State is not the stuff of fringe groups, and is only growing:

Does the unelected group known as the Deep State exist?

  • Definitely: 27%
  • Probably: 47%
  • Probably Not: 16%
  • Definitely Not: 5%

But mainstream media really hasn’t got many other options, do they? Nobody knows this better than the Deep State themselves–the owners and puppetmasters of mainstream media, whose cloak of secrecy has all but been removed. Mainstream media is in a full-on quandary: many people who work within these organizations don’t understand how the world works and how information is controlled.

The fundamental assertions about the state of the world made by Q and popular analysts of his posts upsets the very nature of the mainstream media. Hence they cannot talk accurately about Q, even if some within those organizations want to, because to do so would be to admit that they worked for criminally-owned, truth-distorting news organizations. The only way the mainstream can report on Q is through the divisive polemic story filters like Right Wing/Left Wing, Trump Lovers/Trump Haters they have been indoctrinated into, which as we shall see cannot be employed to truly understand what Q is.

Perception of Q Followers

To their followers, Q is essentially what Q purports to be: the voice of political, military and intelligence insiders who are allied against the control of the Deep State. There is much speculation about who Q is but general agreement that the Q posts are informed by a group of insiders. The whole phenomena of the Q posts is considered part of an intelligence operation that is coming from white hats within intelligence communities. Some believe public figures such as Julian Assange, Edward Snowden, William Binney and other prominent whistleblowers, who have been on the inside and know what is going on, may have a hand in the information behind this operation.

There is some talk that the Q operation began as a way for insiders to communicate with each other on various phases of their intelligence operation, and it has inadvertently become a full-blown drip by drip revelation of truth to a growing community of researchers and supporters who are ready for it and willing to invest time and effort making sense of the clues. Regardless of the initial intentions, it seems now that Q has embraced its role as a purveyor of updates to the public of the progress being made behind the scenes, in recognition of the fact that an informed and engaged public can only help matters in disclosing the truth and defeating the Deep State. In this way, it dovetails nicely with those who believe a mass awakening to the truth is needed in order for us to remove the need and withdraw our consent for a controlling authority like the Deep State to operate at all.

Q Did Not Invent Anything

One of the aspects of Q that mainstream media cannot intelligently discuss is how the movement ever got off the ground. They will try to hem and haw about how people on the far right are desperate to believe something good is happening through their hero Donald Trump since we are living in such tumultuous times. But that is completely inaccurate, if one examines who was paying attention to Q posts on 4chan early on and what they were saying about it.

First off, most of the people commenting on the posts were people who already had a strong understanding of the existence of the Deep State, the power of the Corporatocracy, the fraudulent activities of Central Banks, the rampant illegal surveillance of intelligence agencies, and the deception of mainstream media. They were versed in the revelations of Julian Assange and Edward Snowdon, revelations which the mainstream media has given up directly calling ‘conspiracy theories’ because they are commonly accepted as fact. They were not Donald Trump supporters per se except in regards to the idea that he was not a member of the Deep State (like Hillary Clinton is known to be). Most were a bit skeptical of Donald Trump’s promise to ‘Drain the Swamp,’ although they certainly knew by then that there was a swamp that needed draining.

No, the main reason the Q-Anon phenomena took off as it did was because many people saw truth in what they were reading, ideas that cohered with the rest of what they had been researching and coming to understand about how our world works and who has held the real power for so long. The reason that the mainstream media is floundering so much these days is that they are trying to discredit as ‘conspiracy theory’ many things that to the diligent researcher are only one degree of separation from things that are commonly accepted to be true, such as the revelations of Assange, Snowdon and others.

Trump Supporters Jump On The Bandwagon

Of course now the Q phenomenon is growing among Trump supporters, because a certain narrative positions Trump as a superhero who is truly taking on all comers in dismantling a system that many presidents had warned people about since the 1950’s and even before that, a system that showed its force with the assassination of JFK in 1963. But for most serious researchers, Trump is a figurehead for an alliance group that probably has its roots in the time of JFK and really became galvanized after the 9/11 massacre.

Trump may have been asked to run for president by one or more military men that were part of the alliance, as some people say, but what seems more clear is that he is getting much of his confidence and swagger from knowing that he is backed by a very powerful alliance that now has control of the majority of the military, and he need only follow instructions at the appropriate time in order to fulfill his mission.

For certain, Trump has been strictly forbidden from publicly commenting on Q, even to the extent of directly acknowledged its existence. An untethered Donald Trump would surely be making direct references to the flattering advances of Q posts if left to his own devices. Instead, questions about Q are answered in very indirect and circumspect ways, such as this recent response from such a question by White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders:

Reporter: “Does the President encourage the support of people who showed up last night in these QAnon and Blacks for Trump fringe groups?”

Sanders: “The President condemns and denounces any group that would incite violence against another individual and certainly doesn’t support groups that would promote that type of behavior. We’ve been clear about that a number of times since the beginning of the administration.”

For many researchers, however, Trump and the White House have dropped hints, Q-style, that he not only acknowledges the movement but is intimately connected to it. The best way to explore these examples is by looking at this link. You will notice pictures, Q posts, time stamps and so forth as they relate to posts Trump or the White House made AFTER the Q posts.

Conclusion

The precise identity of Q, indeed the validity that Q is who he is made out to be by his supporters, is not yet a matter of certainty. As with many things in our world today, our personal discernment is needed in order for us to draw our own conclusions. What seems obvious, however, is that even the scantest research done a little below the surface will reveal that the mainstream media characterization of Q has little resemblance to reality.

An uncovered Australian report performed by their Department of Defence. “Scientific Intelligence — General — Unidentified Flying Objects” is trending again. Those who have done extensive research on UFOs will find the Australian version of disclosure to be far more intellectually honest than the American version. Albeit it was conducted decades ago.

According to ex-US intelligence official Luis Elizondo, the Defense Department’s Inspector General is presently conducting three reviews. The inquiries vary from the Department of Defense’s handling of UFO claims to Elizondo’s alleged whistleblower retribution. The open IG cases are crucial to Australia’s report because they establish beyond a shadow of a doubt that the US Department of Defense is being dishonest and shady when it comes to the UFO subject. For decades, Australia has been a loyal friend of the United States. Within Australia’s boundaries, they share a military installation (Pine Gap). When a close defense ally’s intelligence agencies determined that the US was not being intellectually honest in its approach, perhaps it is reasonable to conclude that there is more to the tale than the 144 incidents studied since 2004 by the UAPTF.

The CIA became alarmed at the overloading of military communications during the mass sightings of 1952 and considered the possibility that the USSR may take advantage of such a situation.

Australian UFO study.

According to the summary, OSI, acting through the Robertson-Panel, encouraged the USAF to use Project Blue Book to publicly “debunk” UFOs. In a tragic twist of fate, when Australian authorities sought explanations from the US Air Force, the allegation was debunked. The authors of the study were depicted as conspiratorial and even crazy by the US Air Force. Ross Coulthart reported this, and it may be heard in a recent Project Unity interview. Courthart is an award-winning investigative journalist who is drawn to forbidden subjects. He also stated on the same podcast that a senior US Navy official identified as Nat Kobitz told him that the US had been in the midst of reverse-engineering numerous non-human craft. According to his obituary, Mr. Kobitz was a former Director of Research and Development at Naval Sea Systems Command.

The US recently released its highly anticipated Pentagon UAP report, but it wasn’t much more than a 9 page rundown of what has been known for decades. Regardless, for many, what was promising was that the UFO subject was being taken seriously again – and perhaps many more scientists might get involved.

For decades many have been warning about leaving UFO disclosure in the hands of a government that likes to use crisis’ or current events to expand its defense budgets. Further, why would we suddenly expect a government, who has been lying about this subject for 70 years, to suddenly come forth with the truth? What would inspire them to suddenly change their mind?

Perhaps it’s because the search for ET is an idea who’s time has truly come. We’ve reporting on this for over 13 years, and are mongst a community of researchers who have been encouraging humanity to look at the evidence for more than 70 years. It feels like an idea that human collective consciousness is more than ready to explore.

The impact the ET question has on our individual and collective worldview has the power to truly change the way we view ourselves and the meaning of life here on earth. Think of the implications answers to this question could have on how we set up and run our society as well. Technology, culture, collaboration etc – I spoke about this more in great detail in my extended interview for Greer’s. prior film Close Encounters of The Fifth Kind here.

Now, a new documentary from Dr. Steven Greer, directed by my good friend Michael Mazzola, seeks to explore what the films calls “the current government and media disinformation campaign promoting 3 big lies:”

1. We do not know what these UAPs/ UFOs are. WE DO.
2. Humans cannot make craft that can maneuver like UFOs. WE CAN and WE DO.
3. The UFOs are a threat. THEY ARE NOT.

Bold statements. Watch the film below and see what resonates most with you.

PGA Tour To End COVID Testing For Both Vaccinated & Non-Vaccinated Players

CE Staff Writer 4 minute read

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The PGA Tour has announced that it will stop testing players every week, regardless of whether they have been vaccinated or not.

  • Reflect On:

    Are PCR tests appropriate to identify infectious people? Should people who are healthy and not sick be tested at all, anywhere?

Before you begin...

The picture you see above is of John Rahm, a professional golfer on the PGA tour being carted off the golf course after tournament officials told him he had COVID. He was healthy and had no symptoms, yet was forced to withdraw from the tournament. He was told in front of the camera’s, and a big scene was made out of the event. You would think something like that, especially when you are a big time sports figure, would be done behind closed doors with some privacy.

Earlier on in June a spokesperson for the PGA Tour said that more than 50 percent of players on the PGA tour have been vaccinated. Although it seems that the majority of players on the tour will be fully vaccinated judging by this statement, it does leave a fairly large minority who won’t be, and that’s something we’re seeing across the globe as COVID vaccine hesitancy remains high for multiple reasons.

We are pleased to announce, after consultation with PGA Tour medical advisors, that due to the high rate of vaccination among all constituents on the PGA Tour, as well as other positively trending factors across the country, testing for COVID-19 will no longer be required as a condition of competition beginning with the 3M Open. – PGA tour Senior VP Tyler Dennis

The tour recently announced that the testing of players every week will stop starting in July for both the vaccinated and the unvaccinated. This was an unexpected announcement given the fact that, at least it seems in some countries, vaccinated individuals will enjoy previous rights and freedoms that everyone did before the pandemic. Travelling without need to quarantine and possibly in the future not having to be tested could be a few of those privileges. Others may include attending concerts, sporting events, or perhaps even keeping their job depending on whether or not their employer deems it to be mandatory, if that’s even legally possible. We will see what happens.

Luckily for professional golfers, regardless of their vaccination status they won’t have to worry about testing positive for COVID, especially if they’re not sick. This is the appropriate move by the PGA tour, who is represented by their players and it’s a move that the players themselves may have had a say in. It’s important because PCR tests are not designed nor are they appropriate for identifying infectious people. A number of scientists have been emphasizing this since the beginning of the pandemic. More recently, a letter to the editor published in the Journal of infection explain why more than half of al “positive” PCR tests are likely to have been people who are not infectious, otherwise known as “false positives.”

This is why the Swedish Public Health agency has a notice on their website explaining how and why polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests are not useful for determining if someone is infected with COVID or if someone can transmit it to others, and it’s better to use someone who is actually showing symptoms as a judgement call of whether or not they could be infected or free from infection.

PCR tests using a high cycle threshold are extremely sensitive. An article published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases found that among positive PCR samples with a cycle count over 35, only 3 percent of the samples showed viral replication. This can be interpreted as, if someone tests positive via PCR when a Ct of 35 or higher is used, the probability that said person is actually infected is less than 3%, and the probability that said result is a false positive is 97 percent. This begs the question, why has Manitoba, Canada, for example, using cycle thresholds of up to 45 to identify “positive” people?

When it comes to golf, the fact that spread occurring in an outdoor setting is highly unlikely could have been a factor, but it’s also important to mention that asymptomatic spread within one’s own household is also considerably rare. It really makes you wonder what’s going on here, doesn’t it?
