How Mike Flynn Transformed QAnon into the Big Lie and Pointed it at the Capitol
For four years, Flynn built a cult designed for violence. Then he found his target.
Mike Flynn made a deal to work with Vladimir Putin to destroy American democracy in 2015. He set up MAGA3X and Pizzagate in order to swing the 2016 election, and then set up QAnon and tried to steal 2020.
One of the tools he used was the LARP known as “Q.”
On Election Day 2020, Flynn’s “Q” LARP retired after almost exactly three years. This was clear from a number of moves by the people running QAnon.
Q posted this message on Election Day, which was intended to be its last.
Ron Watkins, who ran the website “Q” posted on, retired from QAnon duties on Election Day as well. This was one of a number of clear signs that QAnon per se was dead.
Needless to say, the operation did not stop. There were two initiatives designed to replace “Q.”
First, a different LARP, often referred to as “E” — which had a number of Twitter accounts over the years — was set to replace Q on Twitter. It had publicly verified that it had a connection to Q and had a deep affection for Donald Trump, Julian Assange, Mike Flynn, Bill Binney, and 8chan owner, Ron Watkins’s father, Satanic pedophile Jim Watkins.
The LARP was run by a still unidentified Brit until late 2019 when it was then shared with Jason Sullivan. E also had advanced information about Ezra Cohen-Watnick being promoted to head of intelligence at the Pentagon.
When Trump decapitated the civilian leadership at the Defense Department and installed Ezra Cohen-Watnick, my friends and I set out to stop “E” from continuing to spread its propaganda.
Twitter suspended the account for ban evasion seven times over two days until it finally gave up and moved to Parler, then Telegram. Jason Sullivan was upset with me.
“Q” was mad too. This was a couple of hours after “E” gave up on Twitter. Q suddenly revived and posted a few whiny drops expressing frustration.
Jason Sullivan then quit the LARP in December 2020 after a series of embarrassments on Parler. and went on to directly incite violence for Mike Flynn leading up to the insurrection.
Sullivan’s real skill set, however, was building systems to inauthentically create influence on Twitter. In the HBO documentary “Into the Storm,” which falsely accused Ron Watkins himself of being “Q,” it was revealed that Jason Sullivan helped Ron Watkins gain a half a million followers in just a few months on Twitter through a “dashboard.”
After Ron loudly quit 8chan, he suddenly became an election integrity expert or “cyber analyst,” despite having no expertise or qualifications in the subject.
Ron Watkins Twitter account, which was fairly uninteresting prior to the election suddenly went crazy. The week of the election Ron Watkins gained 2,260 followers.
The next week, Ron gained nearly 40x more followers than normal. Eighty thousand QAnon followers flocked to him to hear the latest Big Lie.
In the month leading up to 1/6, Ron Watkins gained a quarter million followers and spread Big Lie propaganda full time.
Here is Ron Watkins offering to pay people to go to the insurrection that Mike Flynn and Donald Trump had agreed to three days after “The Meeting” on 12/18.
It should be a major story that Twitter allowed Ron Watkins to gain half a million followers purely dedicated to overthrowing the 2020 election.
For four years Mike Flynn built a cult and then aimed it at the Capitol the first chance he got. Within days after Flynn got pardoned, he publicly took charge, switched QAnon to Big Lie propaganda and started to gin the cult up up for violence.
Here’s Ron Watkins the same day 12/4/20 promoting Flynn’s lies.
Here are Jason Sullivan and Mike Flynn in May 2021, when Flynn expressed his hope that there would be a Myanmar-style coup in America.
Here is Flynn with his Digital Soldier Jason Sullivan at the same conference.
Ron Watkins and Jason Sullivan are just cogs in a very big machine, but their actions, and those of their co-conspirators must not be swept under the rug. Here’s a chart from 18 months ago that accurately laid out the core conspiracy, which was to incite the QAnon cult to physical violence which we saw at the Capitol.
