Gateway Pundit: President Trump Asked About Q Movement

President Trump Asked About Q Movement and Whether He Was Saving the World From Pedophiles and Satanists, Responds: “I Haven’t Heard that But is that Supposed to Be a Bad Thing?”

President Trump responded to a couple questions this evening about the Q movement and knocks it out of the park!

A reporter tried to get President Trump in a gotcha question about the Q movement this evening. We have reported on this movement which started in the middle of 2017 and attracted a huge following. Some of the information shared within the loosely connected organization was authentic and of high quality, which is why some foreign entities have now embedded themselves into the movement.

QAnon is one of the more fascinating stories in recent history. The American Thinker wrote about Qanon last month:

Q first appeared in October 2017 on an anonymous online forum called 4Chan, posting messages that implied top-clearance knowledge of upcoming events. More than 3,000 messages later, Q has created a disturbing, multi-faceted portrait of a global crime syndicate that operates with impunity. Q’s followers in the QAnon community faithfully analyze every detail of Q’s drops, which are compiled here and here.

The mainstream media has published hundreds of articles attacking Q as an insane rightwing conspiracy, particularly after President Trump seemed to publicly confirm his connection to it. At a North Carolina rally in 2019, Trump made a point of drawing attention to a baby wearing a onesie with a big Q.

When asked about Q – President Trump responded that he doesn’t know much about it other than he heard these people like him very much:

Next the reporter followed up and asked the President if he:

…was secretly saving the world from this satanic cult of pedophiles and cannibals. Does that sound like something you are behind?

President Trump responded:

Well, I haven’t heard that but is that supposed to be a bad thing?

NBC News: How QAnon rode the pandemic to new heights

POTUS acknowledging qanons today is huge. moar of us than ever, and this will only energize people. also gives some balance to the MSM narrative that qanons are conspiritards.

How QAnon rode the pandemic to new heights

While QAnon bubbled on the fringes of the internet for years, researchers and experts say it has emerged in recent months as a sort of centralized hub for conspiracy and alternative health communities. According to an internal document reported by NBC News this week, Facebook now has more than 1,000 of these QAnon groups, totaling millions of members.

“The strongest bridge we found between QAnon and non-QAnon communities was spirituality and religion,” McAweeney said. “This content isn’t inherently problematic, but people are often most vulnerable when seeking spiritual information online and more susceptible to alternative and extreme views.”

Those communities have in turn been energized by the viral tantrums that now appear almost weekly, pushing conspiracy theories and talking points from fringe websites and QAnon Facebook groups onto strangers in real life.

Facebook Bans Hundreds Of QAnon Groups, Pages And Instagram Accounts

Facebook Bans Hundreds Of QAnon Groups, Pages And Instagram Accounts

Facebook on Wednesday announced that it has banned hundreds of pages, groups, and Instagram accounts tied to “US-based militia organizations and QAnon, according to a blog post.

The company claims they have “seen growing movements that, while not directly organizing violence, have celebrated violent acts, shown that they have weapons and suggest they will use them, or have individual followers with patterns of violent behavior.”

So – a group which has done nothing wrong, but might, and who have scary followers, is no longer allowed on the platform.

QAnon followers believe that President Trump is part of a military intelligence operation by ‘white hat’ insiders to take down the deep state by arresting and prosecuting corrupt government officials and satanic pedophiles. Whether this is true or not, the left has decided the QAnon movement is a threat, and Facebook’s blacklisting follows a similar move by Twitter last month.

And while Facebook claims they’ve removed ‘980 group, 520 pages and 160 ads’ by ‘militia organizations and those encouraging riots, including some who may identify as Antifa’ – a surprising number of Antifa accounts remain which include aggressive, armed members who routinely organize protests over Facebook. For example, a Texas Antifa Cell, Red Guards Austin, has a blog post entitled “Everywhere a Battlefield” in which they claim “The war is not coming – it is here and now.”

CNN reports on reports on the Q asked

Trump embraces QAnon conspiracy because ‘they like me’

(CNN)After skirting the issue for weeks, President Donald Trump offered an embrace Wednesday of the fringe internet phenomenon QAnon, praising its followers for supporting him and shrugging off its outlandish conspiracies.
His comments reflected the highest-profile endorsement to date of the group, which has infiltrated Republican circles even as party leaders attempt to distance themselves.
“I don’t know much about the movement other than I understand they like me very much, which I appreciate,” Trump said in the White House briefing room.

It was a striking nod to a group that has been likened to a virtual cult and has been labeled a potential domestic terrorist threat by the FBI.
Trump admitted he wasn’t intimately familiar with some of the sprawling conspiracies offered by the group’s followers but said he understood it was becoming more widespread.
“I have heard that it’s gaining in popularity,” Trump said, suggesting QAnon followers approved of how he’d handled social unrest in places like Portland, Oregon. “I’ve heard these are people that love our country and they just don’t like seeing it.”
QAnon’s prevailing conspiracy theories — none based in fact — claim dozens of Satan-worshipping politicians and A-list celebrities work in tandem with governments around the globe to engage in child sex abuse. Followers also believe there is a “deep state” effort to annihilate Trump.
But followers of the group have expanded from those beliefs and now allege baseless theories surrounding mass shootings and elections. Followers have falsely claimed that 5G cellular networks are spreading the coronavirus.
The group has also peddled conspiracies about coronavirus, the Black Lives Matter movement and vaccines – none grounded in reality.
Trump is revered among the conspiracy’s followers, who believe he was recruited to help eliminate the controlling criminal conspiracy they allege is gripping the world’s power structures.
Trump did not seem entirely familiar with all that on Wednesday. Instead he focused on the group’s praise for him – which was enough, apparently, to overlook the cultish beliefs.

2020 called a rerun of 2016 with battle between nationalism and globalism

The Democrats will surely stage an impressive extravaganza this week, full of Hollywood glitz and showmanship. But a peek behind the curtain of this “Wizard of Oz” convention exposes a corrupt and feeble man, pretending to be something he is not. Joe Biden will drone on about his concern for regular people, but his record and his policy agenda reveal exactly the opposite. In many ways, 2020 will replicate the 2016 contest, pitting Donald Trump’s vision of nationalism and sovereignty vs. Biden’s embrace of globalism and concomitant acquiescence to China.

Yes, the 2020 Democrats and their standard-bearer embolden and try to legitimize the most extreme left elements of American politics. Previously fringe positions like banning fracking and confiscating firearms have suddenly become sacrosanct to Biden-Harris Democrat operatives. But beneath that clearly palpable problem, an obscure yet more elemental threat persists: the designs of globalist power brokers of American big business and big government. These elites of giant multinational corporations and the permanent political class clearly embrace a potential Biden-Harris presidency as their chance to subvert the America First agenda and rewind the clock backward to the globalist era.

In fact, these elites can tolerate the ascent of radicals so long as the larger globalist political reconquest succeeds, via Biden and Harris in the White House. The foremost goal for these titans, largely from Big Tech and Wall Street, is to reassert the decades-long pre-Trump policies of supplication to China. These corporations may be American-headquartered, but they gladly toss aside patriotism, and even any concern for human rights, in order to gain a cheap flow of goods from Chinese supply lines and to gain access to China’s domestic markets via partnership with the Chinese state-run enterprises. But President Trump stands in the way as he confronts the Beijing regime, demanding fairness and reciprocity in trade. Even more, he forcefully exposes the abuses of the Chinese Communist Party, both internally versus its own people and externally against the world, especially regarding the CCP deception that quite literally infected the globe with the Wuhan virus.

In contrast to Trump, the globalist intelligentsia know that Biden will do their bidding and return America to a pre-2016 posture vs. the world, and especially China. After all, Biden spent much of his half-century career in the Washington swamp facilitating the export of American jobs overseas, mostly from places like Sheboygan, Wis., to places like Shanghai. For example, then-Sen. Joe Biden strenuously advocated for the inclusion of Communist China into the World Trade Organization on terms highly favorable to Beijing in 2001. Over the next dozen years the United States lost 3.2 million jobs to China, 2.4 million of them in manufacturing, per an Economic Policy Institute study. Oblivious to this economic carnage, as vice president, Joe Biden had the temerity to declare in a 2011 speech that “a rising China is a positive, positive development, not only for China, but for America.” As Biden uttered that Pollyanna nonsense to his Davos-credentialed CEO fanboys, America’s industrial heartland endured devastation.

Those same C-suite captains of industry also clamor for a plentiful supply of cheap labor. As such, they celebrate Biden’s pledge to extend U.S. taxpayer-funded health care to any migrants who choose, on their own terms, to effectively break-and-enter into the United States. Biden’s border approach is so extreme that he promises full citizenship to tens of millions of illegal migrants. Combined with running mate Kamala Harris’s call for decriminalizing the act of trespassing into our country, what would possibly stop anyone from entering our nation at their leisure? But, again, the globalist elites welcome this de facto liquefying of our country’s borders. After all, only the “deplorables” suffer the consequences of suddenly crowded labor markets in the trades, plus the ravages of totally preventable criminality that emanates from some segments of the illegal population.

Plutocrats wishing to send America backward to globalism see an ally with a dependable track record in Biden. The slow-growth Obama-Biden economic recovery was a slog for laborers who saw their wages languish and their costs soar. But those two terms were halcyon days for the elites, as the already-successful owners of assets prospered like never before, propelling a massive and widening wealth disparity.

Consider, for example, that during the eight years of Biden’s vice presidency, only the top 10% of earners saw their household net worth increase. The bottom 90% of American strivers, the forgotten men and women, all lost wealth. In stark contrast to the corporate media creation of “Lunch Bucket Joe,” the real record of Biden exposes a committed Delaware corporatist who, when in power, exacerbated economic inequality in our land. Minorities particularly suffered. According to Federal Reserve data, during Biden’s two terms, median black households lost a staggering 30% of their net worth. Though part of that loss resulted from the economic calamity of the 2008-09 credit crisis, the wider disparity between white and black households persisted all the way through the end of Biden’s second term.

In contrast, a Washington Post analysis found that during the first three years of Trump’s presidency, before COVID-19 halted global growth, of the 5.2 million jobs created in America, an astounding 4.5 million of them went to minorities. That job growth also produced wage acceleration that mostly benefited previously lagging groups, as black wage growth exceeded that of whites; blue-collar earners’ pace surpassed that of white-collar workers; and non-college grads outperformed those with degrees.

The choice for November is clear. American strivers will repudiate the false “wizard” Biden and his globalist priorities, and rally again to the Trump principles of economic nationalism, American sovereignty, and the diffusion of power.
