A person identifying as "Q Clearance Patriot" first appeared on the anonymous posting boards of 4chan on October 28, 2017, posting messages in a thread entitled "Calm Before the Storm", which was a reference to Trump's cryptic description of a gathering of military leaders as "the calm before the storm". The poster later moved to 8chan, citing alleged security concerns.
The handle implied that the anonymous poster held Q clearance, a United States Department of Energy security clearance with access to classified information. Generally, the Q Posts are identified as the content gathered in real time by the white hat groups in the intelligence community attempting to inform the general public about the events happening in the cabal wars. 
A series of posts on the chan boards show Airforce One, while capturing assorted scenes and photos that reveal they are closely associated with the Trump administration, including posts showing upcoming executive orders, as well as giving clues to military intelligence underway that help the public to gain insight to the Cabal wars during the fight over Disclosure, and to be able to associate the intelligence given to be related to the take down of the deep state (shadow government) or the Controllers in a bloodless coup.
Q drops information and intelligence that is presented in the Socratic method on the 8 Chan anonymous posting boards that are designed for open source public dissemination, in order to keep the public aware of the conflicts occurring in the Global Cabal Agendas or Power Elite. The groups of researchers that disseminate the Q drops are called "Anons", hence the QAnon moniker, both Q and the Anons are working together to reveal the truth of the conspiracy of global domination to the public. The information is generally labeled as a paranoid Conspiracy Theory by the mainstream media that seeks to destroy the validity or credibility of the independent journalist in the truth seeker movement, in order to ridicule, mock and use character assassination to stop the efforts of those not controlled by the corporatized media outlets. Independent researchers dedicated to finding the truth about the deep state agendas are attempting to disseminate alternative information or provide alternative news to the public that exists outside of the mainstream controlled media narrative. The mainstream controlled media is one pillar of the Controller Pillars of Society that employs Psychological Warfare tactics in order to discourage independent journalism and Critical Thinking, as well as prevent open access to truthful and accurate information that is required for individuals on the ascending path to be aware of the false narratives and to seek truth in order to acquire Self-Ownership.
Who is Q?
Who is Q : Quote: "The success of this entire operation rests on our backs to take the information that has been gained by the Q posts and the anons that have come up with the undeniable proof (the keystone) and share that with the general population, intel already has all the facts. Our job in its beautiful simplicity is to communicate it to our friends and families. Q has made this crystal clear. The code is not complicated, because the target audience is YOU the worker, the family, the wonderful soul that you are. Your Great Awakening is our Great Awakening. We're in this together and there's no stopping our tidal wave of Truth. We're not doing this to start something, we're here to ease the chaos that's about to erupt.
There are over 50,000 federal level sealed indictments on standby. There have been over 4,400 CEO/President, or otherwise notable resignations that are reshaping the corporate landscape. More than twice the amount of representatives than Watergate - 53 so far - will not seek re-election this year. This is what a swamp draining looks like.
Without violating the very laws that are being brought back into full power today, Q drops clues about whats going on in the silent war against the seemingly entrenched evil few who strangled our world through unimaginable means. The FBI has been gutted, the CIA has been shattered, and the DOJ cleansed of those who stood in the way of our Freedom. Who's next? Lets find out." #Qanon 
Psychological Operations are in place to attack all QAnon dissemination and discussions on social media platforms as fake news, conspiracy theories and hate speech to influence public opinion towards greater acceptance of placing censorship on free speech.
Psychological Warfare is the deliberate use of various manipulations, promotion and deception techniques, such as spreading propaganda and terror, to induce or reinforce attitudes that are favorable to gain strategic advantage over others. Sun Tzu, a Chinese Military Strategist originally said the best victory in warfare is the one in which you never have to fight your enemy in actual combat. Thus, Psychological Warfare tactics are also marketed as a self-improvement sales tool for ambitious, materialistic people that plot to maneuver into positions of power in order to gain advantages in business, relationships and socio-political influence. Essentially, this is to secretly scheme and manipulate others in a well thought out strategy in order to get what you want from the power structure and to get access to other people’s resources, influencing popular opinion.
