Lidia Thorpe says she’s still friends with Dean Martin as committee investigates

Greens senator Lidia Thorpe addresses the Senate in response to her referral to the privileges committee.

Talk about double standards when it comes to media why is Lidia Thorpe targeted when Scott Morrison was left alone? When it was discovered he employed his best friend Tim Stewart and his son were QAnon members. The Stewarts were purportedly employed by Morrison’s wife. Was a parliamentary committee set up to investigate that relationship? Or his relationship with Brian Houston who he tried to take to the White House with him?  Did the media cry that it didn’t “pass the pub test”.

Scott Morrison even after 2 years has refused to reveal the text messages sent between he and his  “bestie” Tim Stewart.

Scott Morrison must reveal any text messages from QAnon 

30 Mar 2022 — After two-year freedom of information battle with Guardian Australia, the PM’s office has been told to search for any messages with QAnon …

A high-powered parliamentary committee will investigate Lidia Thorpe’s brief relationship with former Rebel bikies president Dean Martin after the Senate voted to refer the Greens senator.

QMaga: How QAnon, MAGA and Christian Nationalism Have Pushed the GOP Into Madness | The Smirking Chimp

The Australian Liberal Party has gone down the same rabbit hole due to their lack of imagination,and desperation to hold on to power. The LNP, ACL,IPA, News Corp and extreme right fruitcakes have become bedfellows. Dutton even flew to America of all places to take advice and raise the funding Pauline Hanson tried to do but got caught doing it. Unlike America Australians have simply sat back and watched the LNP destroy itself.

Corn continues,

“Both Marjorie Taylor Greene and Lauren Boebert were QAnoners before they were elected to Congress in the last election. But perhaps of greater concern is that the entire GOP, which has supported Trump’s authoritarian Big Lie crusade, is now willing to follow Trump further into the depths of fearmongering and madness.”

‘Key to white survival’: how Putin has morphed into a far-right savior | CPAC | The Guardian

Putin is now seen as the upholder of traditional Christianity.

After all, Fox News did it! They infact lead the applause heard in Western media and they did it as a team. Carlson, Ingraham, Watters all vocal but then when they realised the division they caused and the potential loss to Fox like all convictionless scammers  they backed off, scattered and ran for cover.

“Can we get a round of applause for Russia?” asked Nick Fuentes, on stage last week at a white nationalist event. Amid a roar of applause for the Russian president, just days after he invaded Ukraine, many attendees responded by shouting: “Putin! Putin!”

QAnon followers are casting Putin in a positive light | Salon.com

Participants display Qanon flags at an event marking the 7th anniversary of the Pegida movement. The flag features the head of Russian President Putin, the Q for "Qanon" and the letter abbreviation WWG1WGA ("Where we go one we go all"). Meaning "Where one of us goes, we all go", or "One for all, all for one". With this, the Qanon followers evoke the cohesion of their community. (Matthias Rietschel/picture alliance via Getty Images)

The Morrison’s employed their Besties who were revealed to be QAnon members as far back as 2019.

The ABC’s Four Corners has delayed airing a program about the prime minister’s connection to a QAnon figure, but much of the detail is already on the public record.

While the International Criminal Court in The Hague is being called on to open an investigation into potential war crimes committed by Russian President Vladimir Putin in Ukraine, QAnon followers around the globe are praising him and casting him in a positive light. Though it might sound macabre, adherents of the bizarre and all-encompassing conspiracy movement believe that a major global crisis such as the current one is intrinsic to something they call the “Great Awakening,” a prophecy that forms the crux of the massive conspiracy that claims top Democratic leaders will one day be arrested for running a global sex trafficking ring.

Huge hack reveals embarrassing details of Proud Boys, QAnon and other hate groups

Members of the Proud Boys obscure their identity at a rally on the outskirts of Portland, Oregon, on August 22.

It’s massive. It may be the biggest domain-style leak I’ve seen and, as an extremism researcher, it’s certainly the most interesting,” said Megan Squire, a computer science professor at Elon University who studies right-wing extremism. “It’s an embarrassment of riches – stress on the embarrassment.”

Hello, national security? It’s QAnon here. – » The Australian Independent Media Network

However, if you are claiming this particular ABC Four Corners episode was about you; fine, let’s make it about you then. After all, “The Prime Minister takes the lead role in Australian Government counter-terrorism policy coordination.[7]” Mr Morrison, the Australian people deserve an answer to this important question: how did your counter-terrorism policy coordination allow a conspiratorial quasi-political evangelical movement, that almost succeeded in a coup d’etat upon the world’s largest democracy, to infiltrate our home turf of Kirribilli House?

Unraveling the mystery behind the QAnon cult

Never run after a bus, a lover or a conspiracy theory — there’ll be another one along soon. When a new conspiracy, say QAnon, comes along, don’t bother asking why. In the touted sapientia (wisdom) of Homo sapiens, it’s just a thing we do. So instead of asking why, ask who’s running it and to what end. That’s my enquiry here.

The QAnon conference came amid reports that Trump is attempting to orchestrate another election coup from his far-off kingdom at Mar-a-Lago. According to a Tuesday tweet from the New York Times’ Maggie Haberman, the former President has been telling a number of people he’s in contact with that he expects he will get reinstated by August.” Trump’s reported thinking echoes that of his former lawyer’s, Sidney Powell.

QAnon Conference Organizer Won’t Answer Questions About Whether Michael Flynn Was Paid – Mother Jones

Michael Flynn made some news this Memorial Day weekend. Not in a good way for a retired lieutenant general. Appearing at a “For God & Country” conference in Dallas that was associated with the nutty QAnon movement, Flynn was asked “why what happened in [Myanmar] can’t happen here.” The questioner, who called himself a “simple Marine,” was referring to the brutal military coup that overthrew the democratically elected government there in early February and and installed a junta that has killed over 800 people and detained thousands—and he was citing the Burmese coup as a positive example. People in the pro-Trump, Big Lie-embracing crowd cheered to show their desire for similar action in the United States. Flynn replied, “No reason. I mean, it should happen here.”

Republicans in Congress engage in hateful Islamophobia to defend their Islamophobe, Greene

Republicans have introduced a bill to strip Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) of her seat on the Foreign Affairs committee. Omar, of course, has never “liked” a posting on Facebook advocating the killing of a member of Congress, nor has she encouraged people to invade the Capitol. The false equivalence between Greene and Omar was taken up by other Republicans and by Fox Cable News.

Trump QAnon

Supporters of the QAnon conspiracy theory claimed that a video of President Donald Trump admitting his presidency is ending is actually a sign that he will stay in office. In reality, it’s more of a sign that the community is dedicated to its delusion of a Trump second term in office regardless of the facts.

A supporter of President Donald Trump holds an U.S. flag with a reference to QAnon

Twitter says it permanently suspended a QAnon account belonging to a family friend of the prime minister, Scott Morrison, for “engaging in coordinated harmful activity”. Twitter is in the middle of a broader crackdown on QAnon content and is attempting to reduce the amplification of accounts spreading “clear and well-documented informational, physical, societal and psychological offline harm on our service”. BurnedSpy34, a prominent and prolific member of the Australian QAnon scene, was recently permanently suspended.

QAnon figure BurnedSpy, whose wife works on the prime minister’s staff, has propagated bizarre theories about Alexander Downer and Julie Bishop

The FBI has previously warned that QAnon could act as a potential motivator for “domestic extremists” and last year Reddit banned one of its main QAnon threads for repeated violations of its content policy, warning it would not tolerate content “that incites violence, disseminates personal information, or harasses” users.

In Australia, one of the more significant QAnon figures tweets under the handle @BurnedSpy34 and has amassed 21,000 Twitter followers in just over a year. BurnedSpy tweets daily QAnon material, including bizarre theories about Alexander Downer and Julie Bishop.

The Guardian has learned the identity of BurnedSpy and established he is a longstanding family friend of the Australian prime minister and his wife, Jenny.
