You may have noticed that we have never written about the phenomenon commonly known as “QAnon,” or “Q,” despite its popularity and saturation on social media—and there’s a reason for that. As with the defunct Mueller investigation, QAnon fails to address pertinent issues related to Israel, and most importantly the country’s influence over the United States.
It does not criticize U.S. President Donald Trump on legitimate right-wing grounds. It detracts from that.
Starting as the “Q Clearance Patriot,” the QAnon following has come to encompass much of the broader Make America Great Again (MAGA) movement in the U.S., and is popular with older Trump supporters such as Bill Mitchell and Roseanne Barr.
Other figures, including Harvard’s Alan Dershowitz, have consistently gone to bat for Israel’s interests.
This trend follows the numerous actions conducted by the Trump administration to benefit Israel, from moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, to bombing Syria for Genie Energy—and recognizing Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights. More recently, this has come to include seeming extensions of Israeli law into the U.S. mainstream, such as defining “anti-Zionism” as “anti-Semitism.” Which is similar to banning criticism of the Israeli military.
Apart from these discrepancies, QAnon has historically lured followers to oppose Hezbollah or Iran, geopolitical objectives of significant importance to Israel's government. Some of this has included positing Democratic connections, such that the reason Democrats want open borders, is to allow Iran to gain a foothold.
This despite the Trump administration attempting to start a war in Venezuela, which will invariably create more immigration, and instability on the southern border. With failure to deliver on building a wall, it's unclear what positive gains could be made by doing so, while devotion to Israel continues unimpeded.
Other more unusual positions, includes claiming that the Obama administration was the one working with Russia, in contrast to Trump. Part of this motivation is due to the fact Israel still maintains trade with countries the U.S. sanctions, such as Iran or even Russia, while influence over U.S. politicians predisposes this reality as being akin to the mafia.
Like the Mueller investigation, QAnon has never once mentioned Genie Energy's involvement with the Trump administration, or how that violates the law.
These issues in particular propagate over to other geopolitical situations, such as pressuring Huawei, through the arrest warrant for Huawei Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Meng Wanzhou—which is something that Genie Energy parent company IDT Corporation is also involved in.
The few times it has mentioned 5G (Huawei), QAnon tended to follow IDT's agenda, which supersedes NorPAC-backed sanctions on Iran via IDT's own relations with Huawei.
When it comes to General Michael Fynn there is also a thorn.
Although some claims have been made about who QAnon originally was back in 2017, with there being a difference to the current "t-shirt salesmen," the greater point is that the concept itself is irrelevant due to the Trump administration's servitude to the Israeli government.
The truth is that the Trump administration should not have existed past 2017.
As it is something that both negatively affects the U.S., while also being omitted by QAnon, the only conclusion that can be gauged is that these two things are symbiotic. However, some followers of Q have picked up on the issue, despite this.
A few weeks before QAnon first appeared (Halloween), Brian Cates and Thomas Wictor had put in significant effort to derail concerns about Jared Kushner confidant Ira Greenstein (Genie Energy's President). Before his Twitter suspension on the one year anniversary of this fiasco, Wictor typically Tweeted in a manner later adopted by QAnon, a near mirror image.
Wictor's only weapon against such concerns involved claiming that "Greenstein did not exist," a ridiculous proposal that was nonetheless promoted by his followers, while Cates mirrored Wictor's claims that Greenstein was actually media mogul Rupert Murdoch.
Ironically, Cates and Wictor would come to hate Q despite doing the same thing.
Trust the plot.
