The Big Lie is not Over

They will be back. The chatter is getting louder in far-right social media spaces. Yes. Donald Trump lost access to his most prized possession. No, not a plane, not a Trump Tower, not his family. He lost access to his Twitter account. It was the most valuable asset since it allowed him to speak directly to his increasingly radicalized base. It also let Q use that feed to derive meaning. In Q loyal boards, both Trump’s feed and Q mystery posts are examined side by side to try to derive meaning and chiefly, direction from the White House.

Twitter warned months ago that they intended to shut the feed down as soon as he was out of office. For the moment, they were telling us when he made wrong claims. The insurrection on the sixth was the end to this, and finally, they closed down the account. Of course, Q predicted this, This is why in late October this was posted on 8Kun

Only the beginning, Padawan.

They can no longer hide in the shadows [big tech, big media, [D] party being exposed for all to see].

Q

This is part of the big lie. This is also why Trump wanted changes to Section 230 that in their eyes protects social media. They see social media as the enemy, Now that Trump was suspended for incitement to violence. Several members of Congress, including Lindsey Graham, are screaming that this has to be done. More on the Senator down below.

First a tad on the mythology that took us to this point. It is one that took form in many far-right safe spaces, where they could spread a lot of material to the faithful. These range from yes, the entertainment side of FOX News, starting with the evening slots, all the way to Parler, 8Kun. Gab, Gateway Pundit, and Red State. Oh, the list also includes NewsMax and One America News Network. All include very smooth propaganda, that has created a hall of mirrors where the beliefs live in. It is one great hall of lies, where reality has nothing in common with the world the rest of us inhabit.

In QAnon mythology the Storm is the seminal moment yet to come. They are sure that what we saw on the sixth was both the shot heard around the world, and both Antifa and Black Lives Matter infiltrating this. Oh never mind that there is a video of participants who wanted to find Mike Pence, to hang him. Or that he was a target with both Democratic leadership and many GOP members who are seen as traitors. Some of these people had ropes and were ready to use a tree. Others built a gallows, It could have been far, far worse. This brings me to Senator Graham and a coterie of enablers in both the US House and Senate.

What is happening in far-right spaces now that Joe Biden has been certified by the Joint Session, as the Constitution demand. They are swamp creatures, and they are traitors. Remember the rope, or people running around with zip ties? They were not meaning to use them for anything nice. Like the plot in Michigan, the kindest intent here was to take hostages. So don’t allow your personal crazy uncle to tell you that they were just peacefully demonstrating, and this was Antifa.

This is part of the big lie? Well, it is best illustrated by this series of Tweets

Incidentally, many of the people encouraging this assault on our democracy were not in the ranks. Notice how Sorbo moved smoothly from its happening (the storm is happening to translate from Q to English) to ANTIFA charged disguised as supporters. This big lie is all over far-right spaces, and it includes Tucker Carson at Fox News. this is post-truth, and this is what these people rely on.

Five people died, including a police officer. This was no joke, and it was an attempted coup. They are not done. This is why it is critical to continue to tell people that BLM and ANTIFA are the violent ones and they were behind the assault n the capital. This is in circulation and the MAGA crowd believes it.

Signals

The problem is that Q, who is believed implicitly, is not done. He continues to post drops which are taken by the faithful and read for mystery revelations. These drops include things like we will have a communications blackout ten days before the inauguration, as well as the military getting involved. It is not just very specific QDrop sites. Nope, at least one Central Committee in the State of Nevada is sharing the whole QDrop that is relevant.

  1. Expect the emergency broadcast system to be activated. The FCC just recently released a memorandum speaking to the requirements under Federal law to send messages from the president to the public. See this link
  2. Expect confusion. We are in a battle for our republic against elites that are attempting the very coup that they are accusing Trump of doing. In battle, there will be disinformation but know that plans are being fulfilled.
  3. Expect high profile arrests to take place over the next 12 days and at any time. You may wake one morning to find someone in high office is no longer there.
  4. Expect this to be a bumpy ride to the very end. This is not a television show where things are resolved in 45 minutes.
  5. Expect more bombshell evidence to be released between now and Jan. 20th.
  6. Expect some sort of internet blackout or outage: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Gmail are likely going to be affected. If you don’t have alternate forms of communication established now, it would be a good idea to start forming them even if it’s just checking on your nextdoor neighbors.
  7. Expect Trump to be inaugurated on Jan 20th!
  8. Expect the executive order from 2018 and/or the Insurrection Act to be enacted. This DOES NOT mean martial law. Remember that we have been under a state of emergency since 2018 which gives the president many powers to act.

This is taken as gospel by these people. They see Trump’s platforming, as well as Parler, and the banning, of far-right leaders like Lyn Wood and General Michael Flynn from Twitter, as this communications blackout.

As to the Emergency Broadcast System, they see a regularly scheduled maintenance issue as a signal that this is coming. They expect to receive messages from the president telling them the storm is here. They also are positive that this is information warfare. For those of us who have followed the weaponization of QAnon, this is ironic, because they are correct. They have fallen prey to the kind of active measures that have been in place since at least 2015, if not earlier.

The rest of this, ranging from mass arrests of traitors to the inauguration of Trump, is fantasy. But this is distributed by a County GOP. This is not in a dark secret place on the internet. Or for that matter on 8Kun or /Pol. This reads like almost official local party policy. So this may help to explain to you how many members of the house and a few Senators are still peddling this stuff.

They are now positive in some of these places that Trump has signed the insurrection act. They rely on people telling them these things in places like Bitchute (at Moscow time) who was relying on a source of a source, and documents they sent him. Trust me, if the insurrection act had been signed, we would know. And then there is this little factoid, reporters do not rely on sources that rely on other sources, who rely on the third set of sources. But for the faithful, this is part of the plan, so of course, it's happening. From the comments on that particular video, the fever is starting to break. Then there are videos on youtube ass well, going in the same vein. They believe it.

I am abstaining from linking to the videos because they are easy to find, and quite honestly I do not want to give them the traffic at this point.

The GOP and the Call for Unity

Many members of the GOP, whether in the House or Senate, have found a consistent line. This is that any consequences, including impeachment, is divisive. These are not backbenchers either. They include people like Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. I understand a party wanting to protect a president. It took some time for the GOP to finally march to Richard Nixon and demand he steps down. This is not happening. It is the backbenchers who are going there, not the leadership. This is why the MAGA crowd turned on Graham at Reagan National. He betrayed them in their eyes.

There is an explanation for this moment, and it is messy as hell.

The right has walked away mostly unscathed starting with Watergate. Yes, Nixon resigned, and for the good of the nation, Jerry Ford pardoned him. At the time the argument was made that we required this for unity, healing and to move forwards. There might have been something to that argument in 1974, but it did not lead to that. The GOP learned the exact wrong lesson from that. If we do it, we can ask for forgiveness, unity, and move on.

They are doing this right now. They are calling a call for impeachment for calling for an insurrection against the United States Government just a youthful indiscretion and to paraphrase Senator Roy Blunt, Trump learned his lesson and will not try this again. I guess Susan Collins was not available for comment.

What they are doing is part of the hall of mirrors that they built-in 1974. Republicans and conservatives (not necessarily the same thing) are victims. They are part of a system that despises and oppressed them, and they are the majority damn it. In the most extreme form and this myth started with talk radio, includes the idea that they, Democrats, Communists, Socialists, Fascists, will come in the end and take away their guns. They will take away their jobs, They will kill their children and they will rape their wives. It is a hall of mirrors that has exploded and has very little to do with the real world the rest of us occupy. Some of the old canards, the United Nations will invade and take the United States with black helicopters, was replaced by the Chinese, and they ardently believe there are hundreds of thousands of Chinese troops right across the Canadian border.

These spaces were responsible for radicalizing large swaths of the American people and the GOP has not really gone against them, because this monster serves them politically. Never mind that at this point many of these people believe they are the enemy within, with Democrats, socialists, Antifa, and foreigners. The monster is turning on the master it seems.

They will not take responsibility and admit that perhaps this was wrong. As many of the people who assaulted the Capitol started to face consequences, the GOP is as well. Many of their members are seeing their corporate money sources dry out. These are real consequences that they will understand. Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz saw their careers become a cinder overnight and disappear in the wind in ashes. There are demands that both most resign, the faster the better.

Their role in this should be investigated. They are not alone. Louis Gohmert, Mo Brooks. Marjorie Taylor Greene and Lauren Boebert were elected on the QAnon agenda of breaking the deep state. Taylor Green kept posting on Twitter that all was well, even when it was not, and about mean democrats. And on cue, the Gateway Pundit is accusing Democrats to try to put legislation in place to criminalize Trump’s rallies. Many members of Congress who are part of this group believe this. Just like they think Hunter Biden’s computer is a real thing, and the insurrection act has been signed.

Party leadership would do well to expel these people from the party, and Congress. The problem is that they would have to expel themselves, given how McCarthy kept this going, and was part of it. I think it’s relevant to post his statement in full, about impeachment

This is a problem because this is a pattern. The radical right will only get more radical and try this again if there are no consequences. They are hoping for this. Accountability, and separating the cult leader from them will start to break this fever. However, for the moment, all this is understood only through the lens of victimhood. A lot of it…is the media ecosystem which is funded by pretty dark money. They will continue to spread this and to radicalize people.

This is why you have some trouble talking to your crazy uncle, and why we have a hell of a time with our national crazy uncle. If we do not have some pretty serious consequences right now, they will be back. Q will just move the date for the plan, the storm, the great awakening, to come to fruition. This is how cults work.
