There's a lot of buzz in the Internet Conspiratorium at the moment about something called "QAnon", particularly as related to this
recent Executive Order.
QAnon is a bunch of /4chan and /8chan posts
(start at the bottom) from someone called "Q" that started in November. This "Q" purports to be a government insider, and he, she, or it (it's Awwiens!!! :) ) has been dropping lots of posts that come across as a bit like puzzle pieces in an ARG. The function of the drops is (apparently) to prepare the ground for full revelations to come as a result of the EO.
All good clean fun, you might say - except there do seem to be a growing number of tantalizing coincidences and interconnections between some of the puzzle pieces and things that have been happening this year and recently - e.g. the curious revelations from Mueller's investigations re. FBI agents acting as Clinton shills; an unusual spike in sealed indictments this year; the swift cleaning up of MS-13 earlier this year; an unusual number of "small fry" paedophile rings dotted around the country being caught earlier this year; the recent exposures of sexual misconduct in Hollywood and politics; and a whole bunch of other things that may or may not be connected. Infowars and the like are all over it of course - but the thing that's giving me pause is that Lionel Nation and a few other more reasonable types seem to be giving it some credence too.
The general idea seems to be that there's been a gradual noose-tightening by US military
intelligence (Marines and Navy) plus some elements of the NSA and the the three letter agencies who are loyal to Trump, who have been quietly gathering info about bad actors (including but not limited to the Clintons, the Podestas, etc., plus some of the big tech people who've apparently been colluding with the three letter agencies in turning FB, Google, etc., into arms of US surveillance).
Apparently, Trump is now poised to use this EO to drain the swamp good and proper via connections to human trafficking/gun running/money laundering/paedophile rings (and of course people are tying this to Pizzagate too). There are also some geopolitical aspects in there as well, particularly relating to the recent surprise clean-up in Saudia Arabia and some other things that have been happening recently, particularly with NK and Iran. It's all too dense and fiddly to bother getting into much unless you're a true sperg, but it's quite fun to get into the spirit of it for a while.
Who knows - at the very least it's all very entertaining and QAnon is a great GM. And if it's legit, there are some yuuge shocks coming down the pipe in early 2018. The best thing about it is that, if it's true, it's a classic tale of hubris
. (They basically thought that given the weight of propaganda behind her, Hillary couldn't lose, so they didn't cover their arses very carefully, and the whole "Muh Russia" thing basically mutated from the initial "it was the Russians" excuse the DNC gave out immediately after the Wikileaks, into a weaksauce form of "insurance" against Trump's winning that's now starting to unravel.)
