In the absence of reliable information, conspiracy theories appear. This has been the driving law of pretty much every news story of the last twenty years, and it’s happening moment-by-moment with Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
RBG had surgery to remove cancerous nodules from her lung in late December. It took almost no time for the conspiracy movement, in particular, the wannabe revolutionaries of QAnon, to spin this into an elaborate plot involving deception, death, and a conspiracy to keep control of the Supreme Court.
Much of the current US government shutdown has played out as a bitchy back-and-forth between President Trump and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. It’s like “Dynasty,” except hundreds of thousands of livelihoods hang in the balance, and Joan Collins has the nuclear codes.
As part of this, Speaker Pelosi acted on her constitutional prerogative to invite the president to deliver the State of the Union by dis-inviting him from delivering the State of the Union, at least in a joint session of Congress, because of security concerns.
Trump retaliated by invoking his role as commander-in-chief to cancel the military flight Pelosi and a small group of Democratic House members were going to use on a congressional delegation (CODEL) to Brussels and Afghanistan.
Naturally, the small cadre of die hard QAnon acolytes who haven’t walked away or gotten locked out of their AOL accounts saw all of these events not as a power struggle, but as a coup attempt playing out in public, a game of moves and counter moves designed to get rid of Trump and Mike Pence, and install Pelosi as president, thanks to her role as the next successor to the presidency after Pence.
The modern conspiracy theory movement revolves around a small cadre of ultra-powerful families controlling political, social, and economic events.
Some of these families will be familiar to longtime conspiracy theory readers: the Rockefellers, the Kennedy’s, the Astors, George Soros, and of course, the Rothschilds (to whom I am not related.)
But deeper down, in the even danker and more shadowy parts of the “citizen researcher” movement is the name of another powerful and royal family, one passed around among a small number of woke anons, with its claws in every aspect of American society – banking, energy, transportation, manufacturing, communications, and food.
Yet even the deepest of research digs brings up almost nothing about them. And almost nobody knows who they are. That name: Payseur.
A live-action role playing game, or LARP, is a type of RPG where the participants physically portray their characters, using props and costumes appropriate to that world, while carrying out missions that cause them to interact with other live characters. They are essentially historical reenactments for events that haven’t happened.
QAnon is a conspiracy theory revolving around an anonymous figure claiming to be a member of the Trump administration revealing cryptic bits of supposedly classified intelligence about an upcoming massive purge of America’s enemies through field trials and executions.
These two things would seem to have little in common with each other. One is a fun diversion, the other a terrifying fantasy of America embracing fascism. Yet one of the most common accusation of Q believers is that the mainstream media believes it to be a LARP – something unworthy of their time and unimportant to the zeitgeist. And yet…they spend copious amounts of time debunking it. All for a LARP?
Right before Christmas, news broke that Supreme Court Justice and liberal icon Ruth Bader Ginsburg underwent surgery to remove part of her lung, due to the discovery of cancer. Ginsburg’s surgery went well, and while her recovery is proceeding smoothly, she’s remaining at her home to work while the Supreme Court hears its first arguments of 2019.
Of course, if you’re woke and following QAnon, you know that’s all bullshit. You see, RBG is already dead (likely via execution), and her death is being kept on ice to be used as a distraction by the deep state whenever Q and Trump decide to make their next big move.
