What EXACTLY is QAnon? An unbiased view.

We can all agree that the year 2020 has been one for the books. In the last 8 months we've seen things that a year ago would have seemed beyond realistic. Would anyone ever expected we would all be quarantined and working from home? Would you have ever expected so much chaos? Wildfires? Double hurricanes? Protests and riots in the United States while the Middle East has peace talks? Crazy, right?

Along the way we've encountered several movements such as ANTIFA, Black Lives Matter, and the newly famous, QAnon. While most of us are aware of the first two, we seem to not quite fully understand QAnon. I've seen several media outlets talk about this movement and label it "extreme right" and "violent" but refuse to express those same concerns towards ANTIFA or BLM. I decided to do my own research on this movement to get the truth.

First, I started with who is Q and how do I find him? or is where you can find his posts. There are thousands of posts from this mysterious Q that started in October of 2017. Some are difficult to understand and seem to talk in a code, while other posts are very direct and easy to understand. Some are just pictures of the American Flag, while other posts are links to people on twitter. I come to understand that there are many posts on that are not from Q and if it isn't signed with this letter then it can be assumed that it did not come from him.

I've also found posts that are signed Q+. What's the difference in Q and Q+? In my research I decided to create a twitter account and start following those that follow Q to find out more. Those that follow Q call themselves QAnon. Basically standing for Q Anonymous. Is this the same as the all famous 'Anonymous'? We'll get to that later in this article. Those that follow Q believe that Q+ is the POTUS. There is no evidence to directly support that Donald J. Trump is affiliated with Q or signs posts as Q+ so why do Q followers believe this?

Here is the second Q post to ever drop on October 28, 2017 let's take a look at it and see what Q is promoting:

Mockingbird HRC detained, not arrested (yet). Where is Huma? Follow Huma. This has nothing to do w/ Russia (yet). Why does Potus surround himself w/ generals? What is military intelligence? Why go around the 3 letter agencies? What Supreme Court case allows for the use of MI v Congressional assembled and approved agencies? Who has ultimate authority over our branches of military w\o approval conditions unless 90+ in wartime conditions? What is the military code? Where is AW being held? Why? POTUS will not go on tv to address nation. POTUS must isolate himself to prevent negative optics. POTUS knew removing criminal rogue elements as a first step was essential to free and pass legislation. Who has access to everything classified? Do you believe HRC, Soros, Obama etc have more power than Trump? Fantasy. Whoever controls the office of the Presidency controls this great land. They never believed for a moment they (Democrats and Republicans) would lose control. This is not a R v D battle. Why did Soros donate all his money recently? Why would he place all his funds in a RC? Mockingbird 10.30.17 God bless fellow Patriots."

Well, what did you conclude from it? I see a lot of questions being asked. Political questions including some pretty high up and popular names. Also seems as if Q is telling us that Trump being POTUS is a loss for the government on both sides. Because of this I can conclude that QAnon isn't a "Far Right" movement as Q describes the Republicans losing as well. I can also conclude that Q is God fearing and addresses his followers as "patriots". I don't see anything promoting violence, yet. Let's take a look at a more recent post from March of 2020 when the Coronavirus was the talk of the town...

Logical thinking. Backchannels are important when the 'news' itself is untrustworthy [controlled]. WWG1WGA!!! Q

Ahhh, there's that WWG1WGA I keep seeing. I looked it up to see what it stands for: Where We Go 1 We Go All. Apparently, this is engraved on JFK's bell at the front of his yacht and is the motto for all QAnon followers. This post is shorter and definitely a little confusing without doing some research. Here is what I found: MSM= Main Stream Media; LARP is a type of interactive role-playing game using costumes; WW movement I could not verify as being something specific. Weight Watchers? World War? That's all I could find on that. If you know what it means please leave a comment! I also noticed a twitter link at the top which led me to a page that says the account was suspended. That's unfortunate as we won't know how to analyze this post completely. Lastly, the Great Awakening... this is something that happened back in the 1730's and 1740's that restarted religious views and promoted enthusiasm for Christianity. So why is Q talking about this now?

We already know Q is God fearing based on endless posts saying "God Bless" and "this will be biblical" so we can assume that he believes there will be a second 'Great Awakening'. Let's look at one more post that is the most recent:

September 14th was the last day Q posted anything at all and there were several. He has a list of names: Julian Assange, John Brennan, Seth Rich, Guccifer 2.0. Hmm. He also posted this:

Hold the line, Riders. Justice is coming. Q

Seems as if Q portrays himself (or herself) as an insider. Maybe this is why QAnon believes that Q+ is POTUS. He also gives hope and perseverance to his followers that everything is going to be okay in the end. This can be a little off putting as it would convince his followers not to stand up and fight because it's all being taken care of. So could this be a smoke screen to keep the people from revolting? Possibly. There is a lot of military talk within the posts as well. There is even a post about something called the "Q Clock" which is something that decodes his posts. I'll have to save that investigation for another day!

You can find all of his posts for yourself on or Feel free to skim through his site and keep an eye out for future posts. The best way to find the truth is to watch it for yourself. I have only posted a few posts on here but I have read several and have yet to find anything that entices violence. Yes, they definitely are Trump Supporters but they call themselves 'Patriots' not Republicans. Could this be a new party? Could this movement be a chance to denounce Democrats and Republicans and start something more united? Honestly, that's the feeling I get when I read these posts. At no point did I feel the need to be violent or become an ALT RIGHT protestor. I felt like I was part of something beyond politics... something that encourages me to think for myself... something that is pointing me in the direction to find truth. Take a look at the posts for yourself and tell me what you have gathered. I would love to get more perspectives on this mysterious Q.

Lastly, is QAnon the same as the all famous Anonymous? No, it is not the same person or group of people and are in no way affiliated with each other. From my research I have learned that Anonymous was found and jailed a few years back yet there are still videos out there of Anonymous. In his/her videos they state not to trust or follow Q. So this leads me to believe they are not the same. So should we trust Anonymous' warning? Well, if he was jailed, then who is behind the famous mask? Could this be the enemy trying to fight against Q or is this a friendly warning us against the enemy? Either way we do not know who either mysterious beings are but I can conclude that Q has provided over 4 thousand posts full of information pointing to corruption within our government. What has Anonymous posted for the people? Until he can provide us with information, I can only conclude that he must be the enemy. All of this is my own perspective based on my own research.

We here at American News Insider strongly encourage the people to do their own research on all topics as we can see false narratives in the MSM and cannot always rely on them being in the people's best interest. Always look for the proof and always make your own conclusions!
