Firsthand Account: Man Asks Trump About Qanon, Trump Responds



Thursday, Populist Media spoke with a poster, VIP Qanon, whose real name is “Rob” who says he met President Trump and asked him directly whether Qanon, an anonymous and very popular social poster with supporters of President Donald J. Trump, is “real”.

“I was at the rally and I asked President Trump whether Qanon is real.  I did not have my Qanon shirt on, that I had been recognized for wearing at other rallies, but I asked him about Qanon, and he paused and then said, I don’t know.  Maybe. and then he added, “but I know they are great people.” Rob told Populist Media.

“I don’t know if he meant that the Q followers were great people, or if there are many people posting as Q and they are great people,” he said.

Rob has attended four different Trump rallies. The latest rally occurred Oct. 4th. when he got to meet Trump and ask him a few quick questions.


Trump stopped in front of him, when he yelled “You are the best”, and said “Ever?” pointed at him, and kept walking. Cover photo shows his Q shirt at the time.


Rob posted this:

“I had the privilege to meet President Trump and I  asked him the question, what a great guy.  I had an opportunity to take a picture with him, that they will mail after the event. So after the photo was taken, I asked him the Question.

Me:  I have a question

Trump: Ok

Me: Is Q Real,

Trump: He looked me right in the eye for an uncomfortable second, and then threw his hands around to the side, “I don’t know, maybe”. Then he paused again. “I do know they are great people.”

“I don’t know if President Trump participates as Q or if associates of his make up Q, but the information that comes out helps us to support him and understand what the media is telling us, whether it is twisted or not,” he said.

The following tweet has gotten over 600,000 Impressions, Rob told us.


Shortly after Robs first Trump rally, CNN MOCKED  Qanon claiming the discussion of Qanon research groups on Russian collusion is a fringe movement tied together with conspiracies that were unfounded.

Rob said that is untrue.

Qanon leads people to solve riddles and research current events, to read articles from mainstream news outlets, and to be unified with others who are frustrated at how they see President Trump treated.

“I was skeptical at first. I started following Qanon about Nov. 2017 after my daughter told me about the posts on 4 Chan.  I am a supporter of President Trump’s and I had a chance to be a VIP at a rally and wear my Q shirt, and that is how I was first discovered.  I didn’t plan to be involved in the story, it just happened.  I was the first person photographed and linked to by Qanon on his site when I wore a Q short to a Trump rally. ” he told Populist Media.

“I think Qanon is our way of getting information about what President Trump is doing, around the mainstream media who always twist information on us.  I read the full 412 pages of the FISA release, and it was all the things Qanon had been saying.  After I read Q posts I go and dig on my own and discuss what I find with other people.  I know Q readers understand more about what is going on than the average American. We needed to understand this story from the beginning.   So I think Q is real for that reason. We are learning so much and we teach others,” he said.

“We don’t live in the time period where we have a Walter Cronkite, who we can trust.  We have to figure things out on our own now. That is what is Q is great at,” he said.


“The Q will be answered,” wrote Qanon. So- Is “Q” for Question? Questions that Q followers do ask, and questions that the media won’t ask.


“I don’t care if Q is seen as real or not anymore.  I used to care, but now I just see people united behind President Trump and getting our news out so others can understand, and knowing where to look for new information.  It doesn’t matter if Q is real or not. There is nothing bad about Qanon to worry about,” he said.

Qanon agrees and posted #2347

VIPQanon, Rob,  said he is still waiting for the photo, the signifier, from the event with Trump to arrive…he is not exactly sure what the question will be or the answer, but he has a lot of friends who will help him figure it out.

[Updated] Populist Media Statement On Qanon: “Qanon Proves American Journalists Lost Their Way”



Populist Media would like to take this opportunity to make a statement about and to the followers of QAnon.  At Populist Media, we believe that what the people are talking about and are interested in, is newsworthy and valid.

Whether QAnon is a group of people or a single person… whether he/she/ they are administration insiders or someone pulling a prank on us, the stories, research and beliefs of Americans is important to us at Populist Media.

In fact, what middle Americans and Trump supporters believe and think is so important to us we want to share our platform with others so they can express themselves.

We don’t want to be Media Stars or hang out at cocktail parties with Media Stars, we want to provide an outlet to the growing Populist movement that is expanding around the globe, and that put President Donald J. Trump into the highest office of the land.

There are layers of stories for journalists to investigate within the Qanon phenomena.  What we see is people who are ready for truth in their media and the government, and are not being respected. In fact they are being attacked by media elites.

We see the story unfolding as the question of why Americans have to go thru this process in the first place, of getting information from a cyber deep throat?  Why are they hopeful about they read, what do they see?  What do they want their representatives to know?  What do Americans need?


You are the Media- Tell us what is going on where you are. We can no longer wait for someone else to start a news organization and serve us.  We have to serve others. Now you have the platform, go do the investigating.

For American journalists to be demanding Qanon followers and posters need to be marginalized on social media, pushing to have their voices and beliefs mocked is shocking to us at Populist Media because that means those journalists have lost their way.

Conservatives, Libertarians, and Populists have had enough of being abused by the Mainstream Media and all of the people who want to control the information and public streams of ideas.

This is our country.  We don’t know if QAnon is a legit source of intel from inside the Trump administration.  We don’t  know that, but we are not scared if you want to talk about it.  We have written about Qanon.

A propagandist has an opinion. A PR person makes money on opinions. What does a journalist do?

We are not the story, the American people are the story.

As journalists, we want to know how the government affects the people, how policies affect them- what their stories are while they live out their lives and walk out Liberty in their small towns and communities.

We at Populist Media believe that the American people are the experts, even if they are poor- sometimes the best expert is a poor person. We are here to tell their stories or give them access to the public stream,  to tell their stories in their own words.


On this day, Sept. 10, 2018-  we celebrate the 2nd anniversary of Hillary Clinton’s attack on Middle America, on the working class, veterans, service people- the faithful Americans,  with her “Basketful of Deplorables” comment,  well,  we say- “Let the Media Revolution” begin.

Social Media tries to kill of our voices, Print media has forgotten America, Pundits refuse to ask the poor-  and Populist Media accepts the challenge to meet them all on the battlefield of ideas.


Hang in with us as we make some changes to our layout and roll out some new pages. We are in the process of growing, and making some new spaces for our new posters- YOU.   We want you.  We want to get a basketful of Deplorables, and give y’all a platform.  Talk about Q, talk about your local school board meeting, talk about what you believe and why you believe it.

Why do you love your liberty? What do you plan to do with it?

Remember… there once was a group of ridiculous Yankee Doodles…

We have been here before:

Qanon encourages Citizen Journalism giving Power back to the People



Friday,  the poster who has captured social media by storm, exposing fraud and corruption in the secret government society called “The Deep State” posted for the first time in something other than a riddle.

“Conspiracy no more,” said Qanon, a social media poster, whose identity is unknown.


Average Americans don’t have inside sources and therefore can not get the reach to other readers they need to spread a message even when they have large numbers of followers.  Readers still want inside sources.

What separates topics that average Americans post online and what Media types post about and cover for TV ,is that Media types have inside sources, where average Americans do not.

Populist Wire wrote about Qanon, HERE.  “Is Qanon a Hi-Tech Deep Throat or a High -Tech Hoax?”

Praying Medic is a social Media Poster who analyzes the posts made by Qanon.  Below are some of his threads on the topic.

Qanon seems to be walking in the footsteps of  David Horowitz, Andrew Breitbart, Steve Bannon, and James O’Keefe, exposing hidden government corruption and encouraging posters to use techniques of journalism to help spread his message.

Much of Qanon’s messages have a level of complexity that could only come from those who have served deep in our military and Intelligence agencies.

“We are taking the Power away from others and giving it back to the people,” Donald J. Trump, Elkhart Indiana May 10, 2018.

“This is not my election, but our election. Not my movement, but our movement. Make America Great Again,” Trump said in Indiana.

Perhaps he is giving power to his Citizen Journalists,” The People’s Press”, so we can tell Americans to get ready and be brave, and have faith. The White Hat Government is , for the first time in decades, not alone- and their Government is working FOR them.


Populist Wire is dedicated to the principles of Citizen Journalism, empowering the grassroots activists with resources, messaging, branding and PR along with skills to give and keep Government authority at the smallest local levels, for the good of America as a whole.

We will always keep it authentic.

God bless America.

Qanon talks Declaration of Independence …from Hillary-NYPD on frontlines



Monday, a poster known as Qanon, in a message titled “1776”, reminded readers about the Declaration of Independence,  closing with a link to a  2016  Breitbart interview with retired Navy Seal, Erik Prince.

Qanon’s post is as follows:


“That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly, all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”
We Fight!

Key Details from Interview at the link:

Prince said that NYPD had the Laptop which was shared between Huma Abedin, Clinton’s top aide for 20 years and Abedin’s husband, Anthony Weiner.

The founder of Blackwater said that as of Nov 2016, the two had “flipped” and had provided information about Hillary R. Clinton, President Candidate.


NYPD’s 2016 Weinergate and Sex Scandal investigation led to the missing Clinton Emails on Weiner’s laptop.

Hillary had been to sex island, and they found other “Garbage” in those emails.  Including many crimes by Democrats and Clinton’s inner circle.

According to Prince, outraged by the types of crimes, NYPD forced indictments based on those emails. They wanted to announce warrants at the time, but they faced criminal pushback by Obama Jusicte Department not to.

Abedin and Weiner both faced numerous crimes of their own.   Because of the two talking, the FBI put pressure on Comey and he had to re-open the Hillary Email investigation.

There was undeniable criminal culpability of underage sex, money laundering, pay for play, inappropriate handling of classified info, he said.

Preet Bharara (D-New York), former  United States Attorney for the Southern District  held the cards to prosecute the crimes found in the emails, and was expected to be a “stand-up guy.”

Prince said that  “Stalinist Pressure” might make him bend, or if he didn’t care about the Constitution,   alluding to the idea that Hillary R. Clinton was known for criminal tactics to keep people from talking about her crimes.

Patriots meet Great Evil 

“The Justice Department is trying to run out the clock to elect Hillary Clinton to prevent any real justice from being done,” Prince said.

Prince continued, “Deblasio wants to stay away from the email content of that laptop because it was so bad,” he said.

Abandoned NYPD alone on the Frontlines

“NYPD knows about the heinous crimes outlined in the emails,  because they found the Laptop,” Prince said.  A Top NYPD official  told Prince, ” that he had daughters and  based on what he saw in those emails,  did not want to allow that level of evil to continue.”


Calling on people to revolt from the political pressure from the Obama Justice Department, the Democrat Leadership in New York,  and fear of Clinton- Prince encouraged people to need to expose what they know.

Prince suggested a press conference to tell the public and announce measure that were being taken.

He continued with Breitbart host. He sent a message to the NYPD:

“We are at the usual sliding doors moments of history.  People can stand up and save our Republic, that we need and love and forefathers fought for.  We owe it to veterans, today to stand up “Shine the light of truth on this great evil,” he said.

“Up to the Comish level they wanted to have a news conference and were told by DOJ to back down.  Let people see the light of Truth,” Prince said.


Populist Wire Covered Press Release about Administration’s support of Police HERE




(SHE) He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected, whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Trump supports Police

“I have directed the Justice Department to do everything in its power to defend the lives of American law enforcement,” Trump said.
