Theory #1) The 4Chan mentioning of “Q Clearance” (as the self-described key to understanding the posts; click the link to read the message) refers to the book of the same name by Peter Benchley, satirizing the Cold War and USSR geopolitics in the mid 80’s:
When Timothy Burnham, a minor White House speech writer, unexpectedly becomes the President’s chief political confidant and all-round advisor he also receives the attention of the Soviets, who see him as a conduit to Oval Office secrets. Jolted out of a humdrum existence when his wife sends him packing, Burnham struggles to cope with his failing marriage, the demands of a garrulous President, and the charms of Eva Pym, an irresistible and unwilling Soviet agent.
Despite his vast knowledge and experience spanning untold eons (and much to the exasperation of the object(s) of his obsession), he is not above practical jokes for his own personal amusement, for some otherwise unfathomably Machiavellian and manipulative purpose, or simply to prove a point. He is said to be nigh-omnipotent, and he is continually evasive regarding his true motivations.
The name “Q” applies not only to the names of the individuals portrayed (all “male” and “female” characters refer to each other as “Q”), it also applies to the name of their race and to the Q Continuum itself – an alternate dimension accessible to only the Q and their “invited” guests. The true nature of the realm is said to be beyond the comprehension of “lesser beings” such as humans, therefore it is shown to humans only in ways they can understand.
Taking into account either and / or both theories, I believe Q is Dan Scavino, drumming up support for Trump’s fan base during the “calm” period during the “boring” months:
On June 21, 2016—a day after Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski was fired—Trump tapped Parscale, who had no prior exposure to politics, as his campaign’s digital chief. As Donald Trump, Jared Kushner and Steve Bannon engineered the vision for the campaign, Parscale says he emerged as the doer or, in his words, the “campaign plumber.”“In 2016 and going forward, the thing that a campaign does every day is largely digital. The guy or gal who runs digital is, therefore, de facto in charge of the campaign,” says Gerrit Lansing, former chief digital officer of the Republican National Committee. “Parscale is really maybe one of the primary examples of what happens when a campaign needed their digital team more than really any other previous candidate.”
In case you were ever curious: that specific, Trumpian way of tweeting? The one that late-night comedians thought was so hilarious before Donald Trump was actually elected president? The one that prompts people, day after day, to make jokes about how Trump cannot put the phone down and govern, how Trump is always tweeting?
Yeah, that’s a brand. It’s a specific choice by Trump’s social media team, one that the manager can replicate and pass off as Trump’s own.
“I always said I wanted to be the White House photographer. I think that would be a really cool job for me,” Scavino said of what he would do if Trump takes the White House. “Or maybe I’ll run the POTUS Twitter account.”
