The Q Phenomenon
First, a quick Q&A
1. Is Q Real?
Yes, of course, and it is a person/I believe group, that has access and expertise. Joseph Farrell says the Q phenomenon is not ‘dismissable’. (The Joseph Farrell video is with the other links at the end of this writing)
2. Is Q Good?
In my opinion it is both an AR and IR game.
AR = augmented reality – to change the real on the ground circumstances to something else, today present in games.
IR = artifical reality – to create something that is not, into something that is perceived to be real – again present in games.
3. What is the purpose of AR or IR in terms of games used for social engineering.
4. What is the purpose of the Q phenomenon.
That is easy. It is to bring in the non-game players to play the game and therefore own the game. If folks are part of something, it is hard to discredit it.
5. What is the game?
To recruit good people to support any government objective.
6. Are there good people within the Q Phenomenon.
Yes, the game depends on recruiting good people so that the message can be passed along with the words trust and faith.
First a quick look at Joseph Farrell and Dark Journalist back in January when the phenomenon was fairly young still. He found even at that time carefully used neuro-linguistic methods of social engineering. He found that the enchilada was in a sense being wrapped in a messianic evangelical fervor with Trump as the linchpin. A linchpin has to be there of course, but can be easily changed and reconstructed in terms of its focus with AR and IR techniques.
My opinion is simply that it is a recruitment drive for good people to do things that they do not fully understand. Bring ’em together, give them an outlet for their aggro (Clinton, Pedophilia, Obama), give them a new focus – insource and redefine what patriotic morality is and hey presto – the patriotic world is suddenly reacting like Pavlov’s dogs to a drop by this secretive Q and they go into fervor dissecting the Q drops.
This all is not overt, but covert. Going back to Farrell he suggests that the ‘call to action’ is and “implied response”, i.e., Q only asks questions and leaves the population to look for answers by themselves and this is not manipulation, it is actually freeing people.
But is it?
If one looks at the ‘implied response’ to a set of Q drops, everyone in the group goes into overdrive madly dissecting and making videos and the watchers are keenly watching for the next youtube star to tell them what Q actually said. So, the ‘implied response’ is to work with the material, and it is not even implied always, it is directly stated. But, the focus and the direction of the response is clearly defined by the previous set of Q Drops. What is the ‘next revelation’? Oh yes, for that you have to visit the Oracle on the Q Drops. (Just recently the language changed, but let’s look at that later).
Catherine Austin Fitts describes it as selling hope porn instead of fear porn. Yes, I agree with her of course, but for what purpose? The stated purpose is to help Trump drain the Swamp and in that process, even John Bolton has had a makeover and is now the best swamp cleaner out there. One of the links at the bottom outlines which of the neocons/ziocons have had such type makeovers. In my view this is classic bait and switch, a great marketing and also psychological improvement on things like the Fulford materials. Even now we see that ‘great things are going to happen and the money will be returned’. Have we not heard this all before? All those ‘sealed indictments’ give a space or rationalizes those pieces that do not turn into reality, to be explained. Anything non-rational and not explained, falls into the ‘sealed indictment’ bucket. This is a well designed psychological operation to get the good people to fight for the government and as soon as they are fully hooked, to fight for whatever Q says they should react to.
The last video where Q (sublimated – now it is Q and not Trump) will save the world is a savvy piece of propaganda. A video editor suggested that the editing techniques on the last video looks like a “Kony 2012” type effort.
I personally think this is an operation to draw ordinary folks that want to do good, into the neocon/ziocon camp without them knowing it and sublimating neocon type objectives into the zeal of the population for ‘doing good’. You’ll not find serious researchers of this phenomenon without finding the descriptions of an operation of some kind.
We’re in a world of hurt in terms of skillful gaming propaganda focused on drawing into the game the ordinary person with good instincts. These folks believe fervently that they are going to ‘rescue the world’ and make the world a better place. The propagandist gaming part of this is not seen. Because Q is not overtly ‘directive’ but rather works with softer ‘implied response’, it is seen by the new recruits as doing their own research and for that, it is a good thing, if it was not for the past few weeks where the neocon/ziocon influence became clear.
The chatter now is: “No, we are not going to destabilize Iran. We are just helping them to get rid of their bad mullahs and religious leaders. They are not happy with their government and we are just supporting them to overturn it themselves.” There is of course no real understanding where the so-called Iranian ‘unhappiness’ comes from and this is directly from various msm sources. Because Q said so, everyone believes it without question. John Bolton has become a white hat and this is the list of players that have had makeovers: Among the figures who have been promoted by QAnon as heroes resisting the “deep state” include Blackwater founder Erik Prince, Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and former Mayor of New York City turned Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani. Did all of these messianically ‘come to Jesus’ in a proverbial big tent revival?
Some more chatter in the past few days. There is 30 Billion out there and Q et al is going to magically restore that. What? Where have you heard this before?
Here are some examples of language:
– Led by White Hats inside military intelligence. It is a plan decades in the making
– Patriots have been activated
– With every passing day, Q gets more legit. I’m at 80% belief now and if Q’s July predictions come true, I will climb to to 95%.
– WE’RE ACTUALLY WINNING, FOLKS
– I know that’s hard to believe, since we’ve been losing for so many decades…
– But NOW IS THE TIME to get involved. The tide is turning and the masses need to fully awake and turn this into a tsunami
– A NEW WORLD is being born. A better one.
– As the old saying goes, “It’s always darkest before the dawn.” And hasn’t the last 17 years been that very darkness?
– The good news is that the DAWN IS HERE!
This is sheer blabber with no real fact anywhere – titillating language that there is this white hat external savior and if you just join, you will be rescued.
Allow me to ask a few questions. Who are the white hats in the military. What NEW WORLD (always in caps) is being born? DAWN (always in caps) comes every morning. What in heaven’s name are we WINNING? (always in caps). The other one that is always in caps, is TRUTH. So, where is the beef? So far, I just see a bunch of created sizzle but there is no steak in the pan, yet folks believe this.
It is actually a game that leads to people feeling empowered by their sense of belonging to this group and because they’ve been recruited into the game and they are part of it, they believe anything because they are ‘doing good’. Of course Obama and Hillary et al are the poster children to pour the hatred onto, as well as pedophilia, so that this phenomenon cannot easily self-destruct as there is an easy path to get rid of any feelings of aggro – common design for social engineering. From a grassroots patriot movement, it is now psychologically skillful planned design – and I find design that looks to me like military sociologists or psychologists – it is just a little bit ‘off’ from what I know. I am beginning to see non-military psychology techniques in terms of some material that can be called marketing of the ‘myth’ really intended to be dropped widely and everyone believes they’ve received something secret and of high value – generating a massive amount of just intrigue. The material itself is full of emotional innuendo and of course, very short on fact and analysis does not exist but there may be a bunch of good youtubers that are getting good points
At the moment there is a massive amount of intrigue being generated. The material itself is full of emotional innuendo and of course, very short on fact and analysis does not exist but there may be a bunch of good youtubers that are getting good points across. Take a careful read of this piece of factless agitprop.
Lets take a look:
Paragraph 1 ..
A terrible thing is going to happen and people you know may be accused of terrible things.
Real Message … Well folks, what may that be that your neighbor is going to be accused of? But, not to worry, Q said these terrible things will happen, so, don’t ask questions.
Paragraph 2 & 3 ..
Silent battles from Silent People
Real Message … Not to worry, we’ve been hard at work on your behalf and you have to pay attention to this now.
Paragraph 4 ..
That is an easy one. The President will protect YOU from all the bad in the world.
Is it not clear what is happening here folks?
Neither am I bored or anti or pro. Rather I am fascinated to see an operation of this level come to attention right in front of our very eyes.
Here is the secret … the game is to get you (and me) involved, to get us into the detail, to get us gasping in delight at the twists and turns of the plot. Is this not happening? Who is the protagonist and who is the antagonist?. Well in any good story, those get conflated and ‘secreted’ and things happen that are not clear at the moment … of course, that is to keep us reading, or watching, or participating in the show. Its a show, a AR or IR show. Inside of it, in the detail, one cannot see the woods for the trees. Outside of it one can make out the outlines and the progression of the plot of the show.
How to really see? Just take a look at the progression. Who is being ‘white hatted’ and who is being ‘black hatted’. You don’t have to look very far to see the hero (it is a conflated hero now as the plot continues) doing feats better than in a Captain America comic. Our hero has just made safe the whole of the commercial US fleet of aircraft with nary a aircraft tech to be seen. Was a magic wand waved? (The plot forgot to mention the helicopters though). The usual suspects are being ‘black hatted’ with monotonous regularity. We’ve heard this plot all our lives. The rest of the world serves as background actors, called in as they are needed for background color to keep the plot flowing, either good for a moment, or mostly bad and they are in great need of being saved – only now, the words ‘exporting democracy’ are not being used any longer ’cause we all know about those words. The world serves as the embodiment of the antagonists or enemies. We even see that word now … embodiment … take a look where it appears.
Who is ‘the World’? Its rather a massive definition don’t you think.
The fight is against ‘the Deep State’. Who is ‘the Deep State’? Is it a unit?
Aargh folks! They’re messing with our heads lol.
We have to say, things are very seldom binary, good or bad, and to look at this in a binary or polar fashion will not take anyone anywhere. There is a Taoist story of an old farmer who had worked his crops for many years. One day his horse ran away. Upon hearing the news, his neighbors came to visit. “Such bad luck,” they said sympathetically. “Maybe,” the farmer replied.
The next morning the horse returned, bringing with it three other wild horses. “How wonderful,” the neighbors exclaimed. “Maybe,” replied the old man.
The following day, his son tried to ride one of the untamed horses, was thrown, and broke his leg. The neighbors again came to offer their sympathy on his misfortune. “Maybe,” answered the farmer.
The day after, military officials came to the village to draft young men into the army. Seeing that the son’s leg was broken, they passed him by. The neighbors congratulated the farmer on how well things had turned out. “Maybe,” said the farmer.
Having told that story, we’re beginning glimpse the real underlying reason for the Q Phenomenon. I quote: “Now, with the US Department of Defense amending the mission statement of the US military from a ‘deter war’ stance to a ‘sustain American influence abroad’ stance all pretense, as mentioned, is over, allowing the country’s political and military elite to bask in the warm glow of hegemony unmasked.”
Of course the Patriots need to believe in this cause, but really, they don’t. The good people are against external war and regime change and exporting democracy. So, they need a little convincing that this cause is just and fair and morally right. Enter the Q Phenomenon.

Thank you so much amarynth! Your analysis corroborates the extreme misgivings I had when I encountered, over on the main site, the comments you’ve quoted, with their extremist capitalisations. I went to the trouble of reading a bit about Qanon, and was further suspicious. Your analysis completely clears up the while thing, and I applaud what you’ve done, which is that you cracked that entire “phenomenon” wide open, revealing nothing but a gooey mess inside.
One would hope that the quoted commenters would heed your words.
Once again, thank you immensely!
More and more people are beginning to “decode the drops”.
It has been two years since I seriously looked into the Q Phenomenon. It is time to visit it again as some attitudes have hardened. This list of articles is not meant to be authoritative, it is a list that I have to work through, discard some, add some material from others, but what it does not, is to give a current view on this bizarre rightwing phenomenon. The scary part of course is the visibility of sheer paranoia, obsession and at times open fascism in the ranks. Combined with messianic self-delusion and circular claptrap, there is a core of Q-Tards left (and many have left) that bears discussion in the age of Covid-19.
