How Many QAnon Predictions Have Been Wrong? All of them. Reinstatement Day is no different.
On Friday, August 13th, Donald Trump will be reinstated as president as ordered by the Supreme Court due to the evidence of the election being stolen. MyPillow CEO, Mike Lindell has been spreading that belief along with his library of nothing which he calls “evidence” of voter fraud.
The belief that Donald Trump would be reinstated resulted in August 13th being dubbed “Reinstatement Day” by the lingering group of QAnon followers. Which begs the question, why does anyone believe Q anymore?
We decided to see how often Q’s predictions came true. As it turns out, the answer is never.
Before reviewing the list below, you should know about “the storm.”
What is “the storm?”
According to Newsweek, “The QAnon conspiracy claims that former President Donald Trump is fighting a secret war against a “deep state” of elites and Satanic Democrats involved in a child sex trafficking ring. “The storm” refers to the moment that believers say Trump will orchestrate the arrest of thousands of people purportedly involved in the evil plot.
Of course, The Storm does not include Republicans like Rep. Matt Gaetz who is accused of having sex with a 17 year old girl, reality TV star and former Family Research Council lobbyist Josh Duggar who is accused of requesting and acquiring videos of children performing sexual acts, Rep. Lauren Boebert’s husband, Jayson Boebert who exposed his penis to a 17 year old girl at a bowling alley in 2004, or GOP strategist Anton Lazzaro, who is accused by the DOJ of soliciting sex from 6 minors, or convicted sex offender Daryl Brooks who stood with Rudy Giuliani at the infamous “Four Seasons” press conference.
For some reason, QAnon followers believe Donald Trump, the man that would walk in (unannounced and uninvited) to dressing rooms at the Miss Teen USA pageants where girls as young as 15 were half naked, was the mighty warrior that would #SaveTheChildren.
Let’s revisit the many failed prophecies of QAnon. The list below was compiled on Wikipedia. Since Wikipedia itself is not one of our trusted sources, we reviewed and verified the sources attached to each claim.
- QAnon’s first prediction was that Hillary Clinton was about to be arrested and would attempt to flee the country. This prediction failed.
- The “Storm” would take place on November 3, 2017. It of course, did not.
- The “Storm” would take place on January 20, 2021. Nope. Never happened.
- A major event involving the Department of Defense would take place on February 1, 2018.
- People targeted by the president would commit suicide en masse on February 10, 2018. No prominent people committed suicide that day.
- There would be a car bombing in London around February 16, 2018.
- The Trump military parade would “never be forgotten”. The parade was canceled.
- The Five Eyes “won’t be around much longer”. It’s still around. You can read more about the Five Eyes here.
- Something major would happen in Chongqing on April 10, 2018. Nothing notable happened in Chongqing that day.
- There would be a “bombshell” revelation about North Korea in May 2018. There were no notable developments.
- A “smoking gun” video of Hillary Clinton would emerge in March 2018. No video appeared.
- Multiple failed predictions that John McCain would resign from the US Senate. McCain remained in the Senate until his death in August 2018.
- Multiple failed predictions that Mark Zuckerberg would leave Facebook and flee the United States. Zuckerberg remains CEO of Facebook as of August 2021.
- Multiple failed predictions that Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey would be forced to resign. Dorsey remains CEO of Twitter as of August 2021.
- Multiple failed predictions that Pope Francis would be arrested on felony charges.
- Multiple failed predictions that “something big” would happen or the truth would emerge “next week”.
- Multiple failed predictions that Donald Trump would be re-inaugurated on January 20, 2021 despite losing the election. Joe Biden was inaugurated as planned on January 20.
- Donald Trump would be inaugurated on March 4, 2021, as the 19th president. This claim stems from a conspiracy theory stating that the District of Columbia Organic Act of 1871 made the United States into a corporation (a theory developed by the sovereign citizen movement). Therefore, Trump would have been inaugurated as the 19th president (after Ulysses S. Grant) and the country would cease to be a corporation and once again become the country started by the Founding Fathers. March 4th is the inauguration date because the 20th Amendment changed the date to January 20, and no amendments to the U.S. Constitution since 1869 are recognized by people that believe this. Joe Biden remains the incumbent and 46th president of the United States.
- Donald Trump would be inaugurated again on March 20, 2021. After the failed prediction that Trump would be inaugurated on March 4, 2021, QAnon “delayed” the inauguration date to March 20, 2021. Joe Biden remains the President of the United States.
This brings us to August 13th, Reinstatement Day. Donald Trump is not reinstated and will not be. Mike Lindell’s Cyber Symposium was another embarrassment among the dwindling “Big Lie” propagators, and this lie is just another failed prophecy pushed by grifters.
