Well, its also about all the corruption. Which is rampant among 90% of politics. It doesn't look like its changed under Trump its just carry on with the status quo. I mean its hard to think he's associated with Q and is the genius he's made out to be when the guy bids on his own portraits to then brag about them on Twitter. Makes me think his spelling errors are just... errors.
Hopefully I'm just being impatient, but the swamp still looks swampy to me. According to the Q movement Hillary has been in hiding/house arrest/panic etc, yet she remains large and vocal. Something needs to happen.

What is Q saying about Li Yang, the owner of the prostitution / human trafficking spa where Kraft was caught?
I want to focus, however, on a different way in which media organizations might seek to influence policy: the indirect approach of using their publications or broadcasts to try and change the beliefs and policy preferences of mass and/or elite audiences, which would presumably affect subsequent policy decisions.(1) This indirect approach might be especially attractive to media organizations because of their special positions as key disseminators of political information. Its use could have important implications for the nature of democratic deliberation.
Do media argue for particular policies in editorials? Here we are on fairly solid ground. Yes, obviously, media editorials often take stands on the issues of the day; that is one of their declared purposes. Many newspapers, magazines (especially journals of opinion), and broadcasts carry such editorials. Moreover, practically all observers of the media would agree that different media tend to take distinctive stands, and that those stands often remain consistent over many years. The Nation leans left, and the National Review tilts right. The Washington Post and New York Times are socially (and, to a lesser extent, economically) liberal, while Wall Street Journal editorials thunder with conservatism; other publications line up at various points along the ideological continuum or continua.
After it claimed no such document existed, the Justice Department just unearthed a letter Matt Whitaker delivered to the Utah U.S. attorney directing a review of how the department handled the Clinton Foundation and the Uranium One issues.
Then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions wrote the letter on Nov. 22, 2017 for Utah U.S. Attorney John Huber. Matt Whitaker, who was Sessions’ chief of staff at the time, emailed the letter to Huber that day, writing, “As we discussed.” He also sent Huber a copy of a letter the Justice Department’s Congressional affairs chief sent to the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee on Nov. 13 of that year.
The existence of a letter documenting Sessions’ directive that the DOJ revisit probes of Trump’s top political foe is a surprise because a department lawyer said in court last year that senior officials insisted it didn’t exist. The liberal nonprofit American Oversight obtained the letter through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request they filed on Nov. 22, 2017––the same day Whitaker emailed Sessions’ letter to Huber.

“‘Lock her up’ was wrong at campaign rallies, and it’s even worse coming from the Department of Justice!,” said Austin Evers, who heads American Oversight. “Even after this long, it’s still deeply shocking to see the black and white proof that Jeff Sessions caved to President Trump’s worst authoritarian impulses and ordered a wide-ranging investigation of his political opponents based on demands from Congress instead of the facts and the law.”
“It strains credulity to believe that the Justice Department didn’t know about this letter when they swore under penalty of perjury that it didn’t exist–you don’t exactly forget about a formal directive to investigate Hillary Clinton signed by Jeff Sessions,” he added.
