Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, May 05, 2020

For a nominee to helm the U.S. government's intelligence apparatus, Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas) draws on some unusual sources of information. Ratcliffe's official, verified campaign Twitter account follows several accounts on the political fringe, including a 9/11 truther account with just one follower besides himself and four promoting the outlandish QAnon conspiracy theory, which posits that the world is run by a cabal of Democratic pedophile-cannibals -- and has been ruled a potential source of domestic terrorism by the FBI.

the outlandish QAnon conspiracy theory, which posits that the world is run by a cabal of Democratic pedophile-cannibals"and has been ruled a potential source of domestic terrorism by the FBI.

The conspiracy theorists followed by Ratcliffe, whose nomination for director of national intelligence goes before the Senate intelligence committee Tuesday morning, cover a bizarre range of beliefs. They posit that John F. Kennedy Jr. faked his death to help Trump to take down the Deep State.

Someday Q will be revealed as some 17 year old socially awkward kid who intentionally kept saying really outlandish stuff just to see what would stick and kept doing it when he realized it all sticks, no matter how crazy it sounds.

God damn Trumpers are stupid.

But Ratcliffe and the QAnon promoters he follows have one thing in common: utter loyalty to Trump.

Hitler demanded no less from the people he surrendered himself with.

@#3 ... utter loyalty to Trump. ...

He needs that in order to get the results he wants from the intelligence agencies.

Loyalty to Pres "L'Etat C'est Moi" Trump, and not to the Constitution.

"Someday Q will be revealed as some 17 year old socially awkward kid who intentionally kept saying really outlandish stuff just to see what would stick and kept doing it when he realized it all sticks, no matter how crazy it sounds."

So Q is run by Eric Kartman.

Makes sense actually.

That's what Putin and Xi have done.

Trump wants it so bad for himself!

Four more years and he may realize all his dreams of becoming America's first emperor.

It's getting to the point where this stuff barely even trolls the libs any more.

The QAnon people are absolute nuts.

They look for signs everywhere.

A Representative gave a speech at a farm in front of red tractors. They took the red to be a sign they should arm up because it must symbolize a code red.

That's how crazy they are.

Not the least bit surprising, RATcliffe is a loony Cult45 member. His nomination is highly problematic! He promoted conspiracy theories during impeachment, and now it's obvious he bathes in crazy and dangerous Reichwing conspiracies. He is nowhere near smart enough, experienced enough or non-partisan enough to be DNI.

Trump is doing what he was hired to do, which is implode the government.

The pizzagate pedophile parlor is an invention by a gentleman in California who was able to then hire 40 employees and continue creating completely fake content. Q people are fake by nature.

I don't think Pres Trump is imploding the government, as that is far too general of a statement.

I do think Pres Trump is weakening/destroying the parts of the government that serve the People of the United States, and strengthening the parts of the government that serve Pres Trump personally.

Trump is pretty much letting the known pyromaniac guards that Dynamite Factory.

Trump knows what he is doing. It is all about the base. The job itself does not matter in the least.

That's just what we need: A guy heading up intelligence who deems the most delusional people in the world worthy of consideration. The Q-pawns are mind-bogglingly insane.

The worst thing that could happen to US IC is being led by a Russian asset.

That has already happened.

This appointment is to hide its weaponization.

Welcome to the forth Reich.
