BEWARE THE QANON CULT: Con Artists, False Prophets & Merchants of False Hope...& Their Hordes of Duped Followers









"The receptivity of the masses is very limited, their intelligence is small, but their power of forgetting is enormous. In consequence of these facts, all effective propaganda must be limited to a very few points and must harp on these in slogans until the last member of the public understands what you want him to understand by your slogan."

-Adolf Hitler

Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.

Ecclesiastes 1:2

I should make it clear up front that a number of issues are addressed briefly in this report, albeit they are not the primary focus. The focus is on how the Cult of QAnon has framed the issues and what has been promoted in the form of propaganda and indoctrination. For, in the objective of gaining power and control, propaganda is the foremost weapon of any cult. Capture hearts and minds, and let the followers fall in line and do the dirty work.


For the record, I am not, and have never been, a Trump supporter and for the purpose of this report, that is irrelevant. But I have no doubt, based on verifiable facts and evidence, that Joe Biden was not lawfully elected as president. Where I disagree with what seems to be the most prevalent belief is in the methods used.

The best example is shown in a massively publicized video, called Absolute Proof, which was anything BUT. The title itself shows extreme arrogance.

This video promotes false information about an operation called the Hammer (aka HAMMR). Based on my own research, and the thorough research and investigations of other sources which I find to be trustworthy, “the Hammer” is a hoax, spawned by a con man/convicted criminal named Dennis Montgomery, and then adopted and promoted by a number of former intelligence professionals, politicians, journalists, attorneys and their allies. In fact, it qualifies as an actual conspiracy. Some of the participants are adherents of QAnon. And I've no doubt there was money to be made by signing on – and plenty of it.


This term is one coined by CIA, which by now, is no secret. This is their way of discrediting people who expose a true conspiracy. They can then say, Oh, that's just a conspiracy theory, pay it no mind.

Here is a definition of conspiracy from a legal dictionary:

An agreement between two or more persons to engage jointly in an unlawful or criminal act, or an act that is innocent in itself but becomes unlawful when done by the combination of actors.

Conspiracy is governed by statute in federal courts and most state courts. Before its codification in state and federal statutes, the crime of conspiracy was simply an agreement to engage in an unlawful act with the intent to carry out the act. Federal statutes, and many state statutes, now require not only agreement and intent but also the commission of an Overt Act in furtherance of the agreement.

I use the phrase, when appropriate, because despite the intent of CIA, it is still technically accurate. Someone promotes a theory about a conspiracy. The theory may be true or false. In the case of the QAnon cult, my point is that certain theories are formed, then promoted as true, when quite a number of such theories have been proved false, at least by those who have taken the time to investigate and develop the evidence.

QAnon is described by the leftist mainstream media as a conspiracy theory. In point of fact, it is an actual conspiracy, one of vast proportions.


Much of the attention of the QAnon cult has been focused on the events of January 6, 2021. In fact, their adherents and followers made up a considerable portion of the attendees. During the event, 5 people were murdered. To this day, a number of people are still being held captive by the government, with no due process. Some have committed suicide. That this is absolutely wrongful, outrageous, appalling, and as antithetical to the principles of Liberty on which this nation was founded, as repugnant to the Constitution, as any atrocity ever committed, there can be no doubt.

To anyone with a background in intelligence, it should have been obvious from the beginning (even before the event) that the scene would be crawling with fed snitches, confidential informants, hired agitators and provocateurs. I would venture a guess that anyone with even a modicum of intellectual discernment would agree, even if only after the fact.

I don't doubt that the majority of those who traveled to the Capitol that day were patriotic Americans, with honor in their hearts, a good many of them Christians. They were seeking a redress of grievances, as supposedly “guaranteed” under the Constitution. They were fed up with the tyranny, with the unlawful mandates, the lockdowns. The election fraud, certainly nothing new, had now become flagrant, in-your-face, an extreme provocation no Liberty-loving patriot would ever tolerate. And that applies across the board, not just to those who were at the Capitol on January 6.

All this notwithstanding, how much of the protest, and the issues it addressed, might also have been based on false theories? Conspiracy theories, to be more precise. And who was it that was largely responsible for waging the propaganda campaign to promote those theories?

There is a legal maxim which states: Fraud vitiates everything. And another: Falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus (false in one thing, false in all things).

So, it would follow that even though many of the issues which were being protested were based on actual events and legitimate grievances, if there is an element of fraud, on which certain complaints/grievances were based, that would make the complaints null and void. Please consider this carefully, as you read on, because that is what the false prophets of QAnon have done.

In a recent online conference meeting of a Christian Patriot organization, a woman joined the call, having accepted an invitation sent out to a large number of non-members. We had been discussing our efforts to raise awareness of the Constitution, through education programs designed by one of our members, an expert on Constitutional history and law.

The woman raised her hand to speak. In a non-sequitur, she delivered the following message, stated with authority, as if it were coming down from On High: The 'White Hats' of QAnon are working behind the scenes. Trump is still in office. And, not to worry, there is all the money we will ever need. She and her associates were working on a plan...

How many times had I heard this scenario (or versions of it) promoted? On glitzy popular talk shows hosted by publicity hounds, “patriot celebrities” and mountebanks, who always had something to sell (gold & silver, specialized equipment, T-shirts, hats, emblazoned with slogans); on the vast spaces of social media platforms, where those calling themselves “influencers” (read: propagandists) peddled their QAnon conspiracy theories and wares.

The Saviors of America (the so-called 'White Hats' and their valiant foot soldiers) were stationed in the wings, waiting for the right time. All will be well. The Plan is coming together...any day now...

And how many times had the false prophets of QAnon issued their predictions of great things to come, messages delivered and widely promoted by an army of their minions, True Believers, slavishly hanging on their every word, only to be proven false? Time and time and time again...

Some of the QAnon adherents were billing themselves as evangelical Christians, commingling QAnon rhetoric with scripture, and issuing predictions, touted as “prophecy”, complete with setting dates (always beware the date-setters!) for events of Biblical proportions. Events which never came to pass. They then made lame excuses as to why their “prophecies” failed. But not to worry, the dates were now moved was only a matter of time... TRUST THE PLAN.

Were I acquainted with any of these “prophets” (which I am not, by choice) I might ask the question: Where is God Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth, in all this wild rhetoric and sloganeering? Why do you set such store in the QAnon “prophecies” , the doctrines of men, rather than standing on the Word of God? Why do you TRUST THE PLAN, rather than trusting in the Lord?

I ignored the QAnon promoters from the time they first appeared, some time in late 2017. It was glaringly obvious that this was just another government-issue Psy Op, engineered to propagandize and indoctrinate those who call themselves Christian conservatives. To draw in as many people as possible, to “unite” them under the banner of QAnon. And to provide a controlled opposition force to the Luciferian Left, BLM, ANTIFA, Marxist/Progressives, LGBTQ Mafia, etc. etc.

Remember the word, “unite”. To unite is to make one out of many. It is to consolidate various factions for an agenda, in this case a political agenda.

I don't travel in any of those circles, but if one of the QAnon believers should happen to appear in proximity to me (for one reason or another), I would avoid any discussion of the subject, should they start spewing rhetoric. I would remain silent and walk away (or disconnect the line) at the first opportunity. In my view, there is no point in getting embroiled in controversy with a person whose eyes are glazed over with fanatical zeal.

If my friends or colleagues mentioned QAnon and asked my opinion, I would explain my position by stating facts and providing evidence.

Here is just a brief summary.

When anything using the word “anonymous” is promoted, there is a huge problem with credibility. Legitimate people use their real names. They don't hide behind pseudonyms, screen names, or self-glorifying monikers (“Judge”, “Prophet”, “Bishop”, “Postmaster General”, etc.).

If someone is hiding behind “anonymous” or an alias in a widely promoted public “movement”, it means they have something to hide. It is also a manipulation tactic, used to plant the notion that they must be “important”; to suggest, in cloak-and-dagger intrigue, that their lives might be in danger if they revealed their true identity, or, to add an element of mystery to get their targeted audience hooked in. These tactics are nothing new. They are as old as propaganda itself, and just as dishonest.

The slogans are used as an indoctrination method. They are repeated, over and over, until they sink in to the hearer's mind and take root. That is how propaganda works, at least on those who do not have the intellectual/spiritual discernment to recognize it for what it is and disregard it.


What plan? They never say what, exactly, is “The Plan”. Only vague hints are given. No facts. No evidence. Never any information which can be verified. Among the most prominent of QAnon promoters, there will be talk of things happening “behind the scenes”. But only the “insiders” are allowed to know what these things are, until the time is deemed right to bring them into the open. You will simply have to place your faith in The Plan, and very soon it will all become clear.

Only a credulous fool would blindly trust some anonymous entity (singular or plural). They want you to believe that they, the all-knowing, all seeing “intelligence insiders” will lead you in the right direction, if only you will allow yourself to be subsumed into the fold and TRUST THE PLAN.


This phrase is meant to engender false hope, in the misguided belief that “people are waking up”. What, exactly does that mean? To whom do they refer? I have heard this phrase repeated so many times, as the supposed answer to any number of questions and concerns.

Here, an example. Man: I am really concerned that the government is issuing mandates and overstepping their lawful authority. What can be done to stop this outrageous tyranny?

QAnon believer: Don't worry. People are waking up! We are winning! Trust the Plan.

So, in other words, leave it to the “experts”. Just follow the leader, along with the rest of the herd, and everything will be fine. People are waking up! The Plan relieves you of your individual responsibility of standing your ground, sticking to your guns, no matter what large numbers of other people are doing. You need to count on others, rather than doing what is in your own power to fight tyranny.


This slogan is pure idiocy. It is just another way of promoting the pop psychology trope, “We are all in this together”. It is the herd mentality. Group think. Follow the leader. Trust The Plan.

This phrase also discourages independent thinking and action. Forget self-determination based on critical thinking, exercising God-given INDIVIDUAL rights and liberties. Stay in the safety of the herd, even if you have to compromise on any number of issues. It is the BIG “WE”. Be a team player, no matter what that means. Unite! Don't worry about “uniting” with criminals, left-wing agitators, mountebanks, or government-issue provocateurs. We are all in this together. Where we go one we go all.


The so-called “white hats” are touted as the “intelligence insiders”, the good guys working behind the scenes, anonymously, for Truth, Justice and the American Way.

They can't reveal their identities, no, not yet. They are risking their lives, for YOU, and you should be grateful for their valiant efforts. Don't ask too many questions, you need to just trust them. Whatever you do, don't ask for their bona fides!

These characters will appear on video, their faces blocked out by some digital device, or cloaked in darkness. Their voices will sometimes be changed, sounding garbled, or echoing, as if they are speaking from the bottom of a dry well.

The talk show hosts who interview them are complicit in the drama. They seem to be bursting with pride to be given the privilege of having this “celebrity insider” ON THEIR SHOW!

Rumors will swirl around them, planted by the manipulators pulling the strings. Did you hear? He is really JFK Jr., come back from the dead! I have it from an unimpeachable source...

These rumors will then be promoted en masse on social media, all the “influencers”, intelligence groupies and cyber-junkies jockeying for position, posting the exact same photos, images and text. You heard it HERE first!

It makes for great clickbait for the gullible masses, and if they're lucky, they might even be able to cash in for their trouble.

I can guarantee, the actual “intelligence insiders” (current or former, good guys or bad guys) watching this from behind the scenes, are falling off their chairs, hooting with hilarity, at the utterly ludicrous clown show.

And that is what it is, a show.


There is a network of QAnon believers, supporters and promoters, loosely connected. These individuals and groups tend to promote others in the network. They appear on the same shows, they are published on the same websites, and they back each other up in spreading the same “information”, slogans and predictions (some claimed as “prophecy”).

The primary claim of the QAnon promoters/believers is that the evil cabal that runs the world will be dismantled by the White Hats (and other civilian insiders). For many, Donald Trump is the key figure. He is viewed as some sort of savior, a heroic figure, of Biblical proportions.

The QAnon Conspiracy crowd promotes all sorts of issues. They are big on anything to do with “outer space” such as reptilian aliens, “The Galactic Federation”, slave colonies on Mars, and other such nonsense.

Human trafficking, sex trafficking of children by pedophiles is another issue they focus on. And although this is a very real issue, the QAnon believers taint the subject by promoting false information and fabrications, such as “The Pentagon Pedophile Task Force”, which does not exist.

A large number of the QAnon adherents are Jew-haters, who promote vile propaganda against “The Jews”. They can be heard speaking of the “Khazarian Mafia”, the “Jew World Order”, the “Holocaust hoax”, the “Serpent seedline”, etc. etc. This too, taints any actual diabolical conspiracies by blaming it all on “The Jews”.

The conspiracy theories abound. Everything but the kitchen sink. Again, some of these conspiracies are real. Others are not. But the way they are all mixed in together, the false theories inevitably taint the conspiracies that are very real with sensationalism and preposterous, outlandish lies.

Here is a list of just some of the most vocal promoters of QAnon. This list is far from complete, I have given only the names and a few brief descriptions taken from their websites or public comments, and aliases they have used.

They are all listed in my HALL OF SHAME, not only because of QAnon, but for other reasons as well.

By their fruits shall you know them.

Conspiracies are real. Conspiracy theories (like any other theories) may be true, or false. There may be elements of truth in some theories, but the minute a false element is added, for an agenda, the theory becomes null and void. And there is always an agenda, at least for those who value fame and fortune, power and control, over Truth, over Liberty and Justice for one and all.

I would only ask the readers to consider what has been presented here, and to use discernment to decide for themselves what is true and what is not.

Do your own research. There is no substitute.

Considering the state of affairs in this country, your life, the lives of your children, your grandchildren, your family, your friends, your brothers and sisters in Christ, may depend on not only knowing the truth, but acting on it.

It is a personal responsibility of each Individual. Forget the “woke” herd, the “White Hats”, the “Judges”, the “Prophets”, or the “Intelligence Insiders”.

They will lead you astray, but only if you let them.

Turn to God. Pray for His truth to be revealed. Pray for the courage to do His will, and for His guidance and protection in all your endeavors.

And you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.

John 8:32
