What is QAnon? What You Need to Know About the Conspiracy in 2021  (PART 2)

Written by Jeff Williams | Published on July 24, 2021

However, evidence can be summed up as follows:

 

Users on imageboards can never change their account passwords, which are also incredibly easy to hack. Once an account’s password is revealed, anyone can hack and post from that account.

 

Q’s first 8chan account was hacked almost immediately after joining the platform. His password was revealed as ‘matlock.’ Throughout the entire QAnon saga, random people have hacked Q’s many accounts and posted on 8chan boards – including journalists covering the conspiracy. Q even accidentally posted his password more than once, which didn’t help.

 

8chan’s moderators and admins have been forced to constantly re-verified Q’s ‘true identity’ due to the hacks. As a result, since 2017, the people running 8chan (and later, 8kun) have had numerous opportunities to take over Q’s account and pose as him.

 

The first person suspected of doing so is Paul Furber, the moderator who ran Q’s fist 8chan board. Furber was the first true QAnon evangelist, promoting it on Alex Jones’ Infowars show and creating the first QAnon Reddit and Youtube channels.

 

In 2018, 8chan’s owners Jim and Ron Watkins took notice of QAnon’s rise – and it’s potential. Through a series of convoluted events, some staged by the Watkins’, they locked Furber out and took sole control of Q’s 8chan account.

 

The Watkins’ then changed Q’s account settings to make it more secure and ensure Q can never leave 8chan.

 

What Are Anonymous Imageboards?

 

Imageboards are a type of internet forum that started in Japan, where they remain a powerful cultural force. Imageboards are similar to real-life bulletin boards, as users post photos, images, and text covering a wide variety of topics.
 
Users can create specialist boards that focus on a specific topic, which often become a form of anonymous community.
 
Imageboards use ‘tripcode’ software instead of traditional user registration to ensure user anonymity. Tripcodes are a form of digital signature taken from a user’s password that allows them to sign their posts without revealing their identity.
 
The anonymity imageboards provide is the main reason for their popularity – and their infamy.
 
English-language imageboards like 8chan, 8kun, and Endchan are notorious for hosting dangerous, fringe communities that have used the platforms to plan, encourage, and carry out violence, harassment, and murder.

 

Only the Watkins’ can confirm whether they control Q or not. But for further proof, consider the following:

 

Q’s writing style changed significantly once he came under their control.

 

When 8chan went offline in August 2019, Q didn’t post anything for months, not even on other platforms like 4chan.

 

When 8chan re-emerged as 8kun, Q started posting immediately and appeared to have special priority permissions only available to site administrators. Ron Watkins is the only site admin.

Machine learning analysis has suggested that two separate people are writing Q’s posts.

Ron Watkins left 8kun in November 2020. Q stopped posting on the site shortly after.

10 Biggest QAnon Predictions (That Never Happened)

Q’s predictions are core to the entire belief system based around him.

 

In the early days of QAnon, they were quite explicit and easy to decode. As the years have dragged on, Q’s predictions have become more cryptic, vague, and difficult to interpret.

 

The most famous Q predictions have included the following:

 

1-October 2017: 

In his first post, Q stated that an arrest warrant had been issued for Hilary Clinton (HRC) and she would be arrested. Extradition orders were in place in case she tried to flee. Hilary Clinton has never been arrested.

2-November 2017: 

In the same post, Q predicted mass riots would break out in early November 2017, while cabal members tried to flee the US, and the US military would have to crackdown on the dissent. This event would be known as ‘The Storm.’ No such events occurred.

 
3-Dec. 2017: 

A report would be released revealing that Barack Obama is Satan. To date, no such report has emerged.

 

4-March 2018: 

The ‘Five Eyes’ security alliance between the US, UK, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada ‘won’t be around much longer.’ All evidence suggests the alliance remains strong and continues to operate.

6-March 2018:

 A ‘smoking gun’ video proving all the various claims made against HRC would be released. It never happened.

7-Numerous occasions: 

Q repeatedly claimed US Senator John McCain would resign. McCain remained a senator until his death in August 2018.

 

8-Numerous occasions: 

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg would resign and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey would be forced out of his company. Both would subsequently attempt to flee the US. Both remain at their respective companies and continue to reside in the US.

 

9-January 2020: 

45,000 sealed indictments would be released detailing all the evidence against the elite cabal. Mass arrests would follow, along with purges of the FBI, CIA, and all levels of government. The Storm and the Great Awakening would follow shortly after.

No such indictments have ever been released, nor the mass arrests, or government purges.

October 2020: 

JFK Jr., who died in a plane crash in 1999, would re-emerge after 21 years in hiding, team up with Trump at a rally in Dallas and become his re-election running mate.

Trump was scheduled to appear in Wisconsin that day, with no rally planned in Dallas.

11-Numerous occasions: 

Donald Trump, as US president, would overthrow the elite puppet masters secretly ruling all human society and deliver salvation to all humankind. Trump lost his re-election campaign, having failed to deliver on Q’s promise, and left office on January 20th, 2021.

 

Why Do People Still Follow QAnon’s Predictions?

 

If Q’s predictions keep proving false, why do people still believe and follow?

 

A lot of research has been done on doomsday prophecies and cults, especially in the US. Studies show that while common sense suggests people would lose interest in Q’s predictions once enough didn’t come true, that rarely happens.

 

Instead, the most ardent followers double down and simply revise their original interpretations of the prophecies. The cryptic nature of Q’s posts makes this especially easy and rewarding.

5 Examples of ‘Proof’ Uncovered by QAnon Supporters

The following is not an extensive list; it’s simply meant to demonstrate the nature of QAnon’s spread and the wild theories it creates.

 

1-Donald Trump Secretly hired Robert Mueller.

The QAnon community believes that the 2017-19 special investigation into Donald Trump’s ties with Russia was an elaborate scheme orchestrated by the president.

Trump apparently staged his conspiracy with the Russians so he had a reason to recruit Robert Mueller into his cause (in this scenario, Robert Mueller is a Trump ally).

Trump and Mueller could now work together to stop a coup attempt by Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and George Soros.

 

In doing so, Trump once again proved his messianic wisdom and superior strategizing.

 

2-George HW Bush sends a warning to the deep state.

After he died in 2018, former US president George HW Bush lay in state at the Rotunda of the US Capitol in Washington DC for three days.

 

One fervent QAnon supporter noticed that the stonework on the Rotunda floor formed a Q.

 

Bush is considered an enemy of Q, and this was seen as a message to the deep state, warning them about QAnon.

3-Jeffrey Epstein’s arrest and death

 

In July 2019, the billionaire financier and socialite Jeffery Epstein was arrested on numerous charges related to prostitution, sex trafficking, and abuse of teenage girls. Epstein had abused girls as young as 14 and procured many for his powerful and wealthy friends.

 

Three weeks after his arrest, Epstein died in his cell of an apparent suicide.

 

Epstein’s arrest and ‘mysterious’ death – along with his relationships with many powerful men – were seen as the greatest validation of QAnon’s predictions and claims. Q referenced Epstein and his private island (where many of his crimes took place) numerous times before Epstein’s arrest, as far back as November 2017.

10.QAnon Epstein

Contrary to what many of his followers will tell you, Q wasn’t sharing or uncovering anything new.

 

Epstein was arrested in 2008 and charged with procuring a child for prostitution and soliciting a prostitute. After pleading guilty, he received an incredibly light (and controversial) conviction. Investigators identified 36 girls allegedly abused by Epstein.

 

The case was well known in rightwing circles for years, due to Epstein’s close relationship with Bill Clinton and the influence his social status had in his light conviction. Q wasn’t sharing anything you couldn’t already read in pro-Trump Facebook groups.

 

And like everyone else using Epstein to smear the Clintons, Q left out one important fact: Donald Trump was also close friends with Jeffrey Epstein. He’s been photographed with Jeffrey Epstein numerous times. They were neighbors.

Donald Trump is on record joking about Epstein’s attraction to girls ‘on the young side.’

 

The same Donald Trump is apparently fighting to bring down an evil cabal of child sex trafficking cannibal elites.

 

How can the savior of QAnon be in cahoots with one of its most prominent villains? This has never been explained.

 

4-The Wayfair Child Trafficking ‘Scandal’

In June 2020, a QAnon believer and self-styled detective noticed that online furniture brand Wayfair was selling expensive metal cabinets with girls’ names like Neriah and Yaritza.

 

This was nearly a year after Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking operation had finally been exposed.

 

The conclusion was simple: Wayfair must also be involved in the global child sex trafficking operations that QAnon is working to expose.

The completely baseless ‘theory’ gained so much traction and that Wayfair was forced to eventually release a statement denying any role in any sex trafficking crimes.

 

5-Mass Arrest of Celebrities During Covid-19

Shortly after contracting Covid-19 in 2020, Tom Hanks appeared as a guest host on Saturday Night Live with a shaved head, recording from his home.

 

Many in the QAnon community decided there was only one explanation: Hanks had finally been arrested and detained at home. The Storm was clearly about to start.*
