Elon Musk’s SpaceX launched the Zuma spacecraft into low-pitched Earth orbit Jan. 7, carrying a secret warhead on behalf of an undisclosed U.S. government agency. Space.com reports protection contractor Northrop Grumman put the launch on behalf of the members of the government, but that good-for-nothing has been discovered about Zuma’s objectives. That hasn’t stopped internet conspiracy theoreticians from starting wild with doctrines, though, and a good deal of them center on North Korea.
Citing 4chan berths by” QAnon ,” someone who claims to be a government negotiator with powerful “Q-level” certificate permission, these armchair national insurance commentators have decided that Zuma is a non-nuclear opening targeting North koreans. Perhaps it’s an electromagnetic pulse that they are able to knock out the country’s supremacy( or at the least disable its rocket advice structures) and force Kim Jong-un into negotiations?
We are at DEFCON 1.
SpaceX Zuma launch tonight carried a restricted payload.
Do the math.

NK has nukes. Nukes were given to them by bad actors in our “countries “. Unfortunately for NK, we took away their lead arrangement. RE: Q says the issue of missiles are missing their. If NK were to shoot off a nuke it would moor back on them.

All of this opinion is going down on the hashtag #qanon and on 4chan and Reddit weaves devoted to following “Q.” But who is Q, and why would anyone rely an anonymous 4chan troll claiming to be an knowledge insider?
Conveniently for the pro-Trump majority on 4chan’ s most important gathering, the” politically incorrect”/ pol/ card, Q’s info seems to be directed at taking down the Clinton and Obama categories.He also mentions other genealogies who have long been the subject of Illuminati-style the allegations that they” pass “the worlds” “: the Sauds, the Rothschilds, and George Soros.
According to Q, the Trump-Russia investigation is really an investigation into onetime chairmen Clinton and Obama, and Trump is actually in a covert conflict with the” Deep State .” Oh, and there are accusations of Satanism and pedophilia , more, a la the thoroughly discredited #Pizzagate plot theory from early 2017.
and then there’s … this 😛 TAGEND
Can anyone confirm that Hillary Clinton, Chelsea Clinton and John McCain have this boot on their leg? Rumor is going around that they have an ankle monitor they’re trying to cover up. Were they accused? #FollowTheWhiteRabbit pic.twitter.com/ ZcExtRUQiU

Q’s admirers are referring to all of this as” The Storm ,” or” Following the White Rabbit ,” and they discuss it on gatherings like/ pol /, Reddit’s CBTS_stream( CBTS is” mollify before the rain “), and 8chan, the wild-west 4chan spinoff for people who judge 4chan isn’t pro-free-speech enough. And of course, there are the Twitter hashtags: #qanon, #thestorm, #followthewhiterabbit and others.
Q’s posts have been compiled into a truther document contained within slogans like” Truth ever acquires ,” “everything is connected,” and” we the scarlet pilled .”
In the introduction, the document’s journalist writes:” If you don’t know what all this Q story is all about yet, you are about to enter the rabbit fault, a fascinating, macabre, spooky, disgusting and mind-blowing deep opening. This is not for the swoon of soul but you’ve to face the truth as unspeakable it could be. Why? Because real attentions realize real lies. It is only once humanity will have faced the lies and awakened to the truth that we will be able to do the right thing .”
The idea that someone will try to” do the right thing” based on anonymous generators in pro-Trump plot forums is a frightening one. The last-place go it happened, a serviceman appointed Edgar Welch walked into a D.C. pizza place with an AR-1 5.
Welch was sentenced to four years in prison. Attorneys in his example warned that, “Beyond Pizzagate, the Internet is full of wild scheme assumptions where people urge members of the public . . . to take action .”
