One last heave for the QAnoners…
Conspiracists believe that today Trump loyalists will overthrow the Government
May I be the first to wish A Merry March 4th to you and your kin.
What is ‘March 4th’? Well, think of it as the Cinco de Mayo of the clinically certifiable.

In 1933, in his famous first hundred days, Franklin D. Roosevelt introduced the 14th Amendment to reduce the period that an outgoing President would spend as a lame duck. Prior to that, rather than late-January, incoming presidents would be inaugurated on 4 March.
Hence why many of Q’s bitter-enders have seized upon the date as the next Big One, where Trump loyalists inside the government will rise up, and overthrow the Bidenista regime.
According to the lore, this will make Trump the ‘19th president’ — because of another constitutional tweak, after Ulysses S Grant’s term, that changed the definition of citizenship from ‘sovereign citizen’ to ‘federal citizen’. Everyone since having thus been illegitimate.
“Military intervention is the only way at this point… my heart is ready for that,” said one of the guests on Juan O Savin’s Bitchute podcast, We Keep The Faith.
“The entities in the military that are making these decisions are somewhat past the groupthink,” Savin himself ruminated. “It’s a very mechanical and analytical process — if they believed a foreign entity was in charge, they would have to act.”
Savin was recording from his hotel room. He was ‘on his way to DC’, presumably tailed by the biggest squadron of G Men since Capone forgot to keep his lunch receipts for the IRS.
But considered in the round, Savin seems like a minority interest. Increasingly, Q’s online haunts are functioning more as an umbrella structure for a range of conspiracists who are interested in US politics. There’s much less emphasis on the godly “Q” himself, and his decoding “drops” (messages posted to the fringe forum 8kun).
This could be because the shadowy ‘Trump White House insider’ who went by the handle of Q seems to have run out of road, in the most intriguing way.
To date, the last Q drop was 8 December. It was a montage of patriots and big flags and street fighting, set to cross-dressing hair metal gods Twisted Sister’s 1984 classic ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It’.
If this is how the world ends, not with a whimper but with bangs, then it is a sad place for the faithful to find themselves. No wonder spirits are increasingly testy. It seems that even amongst the lizard-adjacent, the idea of giving the media another hostage to fortune suddenly seems like a bad idea. Some suggest the 4 March date is a psyop, propagated by the media to discredit them.
They might even be right on that one. At the moment, there’s something of a feedback loop going on between a press corps intent on covering the spice of Q, and the fact that Q is presently flatlining. In some sense, it’s the same problem that organisations like Hope Not Hate have faced for years: the supply issue when it comes to actual living Nazis, versus the public demand for Nazi-type figures to boo.
The 6 January Shaman may have lodged in the media’s minds, but intriguingly, USA TODAY’s own analysis of court documents found that only 13 of the 266 arrested so far in connection with the Capitol attack could be positively linked to QAnon theories.
So it’s particularly interesting that a Q-adjacent ‘sovereign citizens’ clickbait blog called Information Liberation recently ran a piece with the headline: “Q-Anon’ Bears Striking Resemblance to Bolshevik Psy-Op From 1920s Known As ‘Operation Trust’”.
As anyone digging deeper into a rabbit hole will intuitively understand, the only way to truly disavow Q, is to go one deeper…
Qanon is a CIA psyop designed to control, subdue, and pacify the Trump MAGA enthusiasts. Qanon never existed. It was a Leftist tool, a fabrication to send fake news and false hope to the Trump America First crowd. The Patriots who believe America First are not the disruptive, violent, thugs who destroy property, and hurt people. That distinction is reserved for the Left.
Except that it isn’t a made up figment, and there is even a senator, Marjorie Taylor Greene spouting this cr ap. There are at least 12 and probably up to twenty in the Senate who were expressing sympathy for the movement.
This “last heave”, just like all of the other Q-spiracies, is just another plant, outlandish on its face, and believed by an incredibly small minority of Q loyalists—but given fuel and blown out of proportion not by Q-anoners, but by people hellbent on manufacturing a boogeyman they’re calling “white domestic terrorism”.
The establishment neocon/neolib cabal are frothing for any shred of Q-material so they can plaster it all over the media and convince us we need to enact Patriot Act-esque domestic surveillance.
Stop giving this garbage attention.
Agreed. I’d never heard of this group until I was told to fear it.
If a violent mob invading the halls of government and terrorising the people who work there isn’t domestic terrorism, what is?
I’m not sure you can argue that this latest Q-Anon date must be false because it wouldn’t make sense to provide a hostage to fortune. It hasn’t stopped them before, and it didn’t stop the “end of the world” brigade – we’ve had several dates when the world would end, or the aliens would come, or whatever.
Maybe stark raving bonkers gotta rave stark bonkers?
A bit of confusion at the start of this article. The 14th Amendment was in 1868 and was designed to guarantee civil rights, as a follow up to the 13th (1865) which abolished slavery. The one reducing the lame duck period was actually the 20th. Also, a president does not “introduce” a constitutional amendment – the impetus comes from Congress.
I have just read the same thing on the BBC website. Is it really helpful to keep talking about it, maybe interspersing the article with “baseless theory” every other line as the BBC does?
The Rapture of the conspiracy theorists. March 4th 2021. As predicted no doubt by Nostradamus, and carved on a Mayan pyramid by ancient alien civilisations, the same ones that made the cosmic mirror whose curvature makes you think the Earth is round.
The Millerites ‘Great Disappointment’ of 1844 led the way for the forming of the Seventh Day Advent Church, and even Bab, the leader of the Bahai, came out openly in Iran in agreement, so lets not think a hugely anticipated ‘No Show’ always means a let down, it can be a beginning.
Tonight I will have a cold seltzer for our great 19th President, Mr Trump, whose position was so heinously stolen from him by the you-know-whos.
only 13 of the 266 arrested so far in connection with the Capitol attack could be positively linked to QAnon theories.
