CONSPIRACY theorists wildly claim that Hurricane Ida was a man-made disaster while others believe JFK Jr will return from the dead – decades after he was killed.
The summer withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan saw the rise of the Taliban and US forces hastily evacuated.
Biden has been heavily criticized for his handling of the crisis from both Democrats and Republicans, but some conspiracy theorists ludicrously claim that The rise of the Taliban was orchestrated by the president he himself.
One Telegram user said: “Wait until people realize that the Biden administration is plotting to reinstall the Taliban government in Afghanistan.
“Notice how easy it is to take over the country. Does it seem a bit staged? America has literally handed over the country & all US assets. Why?”
They unfoundedly claimed that it was an attempt to distract from the election check being conducted in Arizona.
The myth has been shared by the likes of Ron Watkins on his Telegram and Gab accounts.
Watkins is a former administrator of 8kun, a website that facilitated the rise of QAnon, according to Evil behavior.
“The ongoing failure in Afghanistan is just the beginning of a planned diversion campaign so they can ignore the results of the Maricopa County audit. All eyes are on Maricopa County! ”
Watkins believes the Maricopa County audit will expose allegations of election fraud, sparking a string of similar audits.
The theory is that the results of these audits will then reveal Donald Trump wins election but it was stolen from him by Biden.
ONE Republican Party-Review supported found no evidence that the election was stolen from Trump in Maricopa County.
Several QAnon supporters have shared a well-publicized video of a US military plane surrounded by desperate Afghans on the tarmac at Kabul airport.
They claimed the jet was numbered 1109 and wildly assumed the overturned number was “911” or 9/11.
Believers also claim that Trump’s statement about the Taliban takeover contains a QAnon message.
They said their use of the phrase “fall of Kabul” was an allusion to “The Fall of the Cabal,” a series of videos by QAnon that are considered a cornerstone text.
Supporters of the discredited far-right movement have used social media to claim that Hurricane Ida was created to distract from the chaos in Afghanistan.
The disaster was blamed on the “deep state”.
One person said: “Man-made storm from the Deep State Cabal. Blood will be on their hands. Pray. “
Another commented: “Look through history. When the team in deep state is about to be exposed to something major weather-related that happens as a major distraction to the flood (no pun intended) news cycle. Everybody get up.”
“Weather manipulation” is often cited by QAnon advocates, who believe it is being used by criminal circles to control the world.
One QAnon supporter stated that it was “mathematically impossible” that hurricanes Gustav, Isaac, Harvey, and Ida all made landfall in the United States on August 29 in 2008, 2012, 2017 and 2021.
“The Deep State has been manipulating and controlling the weather for decades,” she stated.
However, hurricanes occur during the normal hurricane season in the United States, which is influenced by the Earth’s gas and jet streams.
They all fall between the seventh and ninth hurricanes that hit the United States that year – named alphabetically – meaning they were nothing out of the ordinary for the time of year.
Others have stated that many major hurricanes that make landfall in the United States always follow the same path through the country, leaving cities like New Orleans is the hardest hit.
“Hurricanes created by Nasa, DOD, CIA are always like that,” said one supporter, who shared the map and dubbed it “weather warfare.”
However, the path of hurricanes is also controlled by air currents and currents.
JFK JR’s ‘BACK’
QAnon hardliners believe that Donald Trump will be brought back to the Oval Office before 2024 as they remain charged over baseless allegations that the 2020 election is rigged.
In November, hundreds of people gathered at the site of JFK’s assassination in Dallas, Texas for the “appearance” of his son, who died in 1999.
JFK Jr. was one of three people killed in a light plane crash.
Pictures went viral on social media of supporters carrying American and MAGA flags standing on a bridge over Dealey Plaza.
They believe that JFK Jr’s “return” will be somehow trigger the return of Donald Trump to the White House and honored him as “King of Kings”. JFK Jr did not return.
And, some believe MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell’s odd prediction that Trump will be reinstated on August 13.
In June, he jubilantly declared that the Republican Party’s return to power would bring about “the greatest rebirth in American history.”
The theory is completely unfounded as GOP Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, who distanced herself from the QAnon theory, denied reports that Trump would be reinstated.
She told Steve Bannon’s War Room Pandemic show: “It’s going to be very difficult to overturn the 2020 election and so I don’t want anyone to hold out hope that President Trump will return to the White House in August.
“Because that’s not true. I’m telling you as a member of Congress – that’s a very unlikely thing. ”
As the Covid shots rolled out, TikTok videos of vaccinated people sticking magnets to their arms went viral online.
Conspiracy theorists claim that the vaccine contains microchips or devices that will be used by the state to spy on Americans.
Boffins at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention debunked the ridiculous theory.
“Getting the COVID-19 vaccine will not cause you to become magnetized, even at the injection site, which is usually your arm,” they said.
The vaccine does not contain metals such as iron, nickel, lithium and cobalt that can generate electromagnetic fields.
Expert studies have shown that the risk of severe illness from Covid-19 is reduced by 90% or more in fully vaccinated people.
While there have been breakthrough cases of Covid in vaccinated people, they are rare.
In the event of a breakthrough case, it is highly unlikely that the victim will be hospitalized with severe symptoms or die from the virus.
Health officials have warned that the Omicron variant is more infectious and could lead to further breakout cases.
However, the spread could be offset by all vaccinated Americans getting a booster shot.
Current vaccines are expected to protect against severe illness, hospitalization, and death from infection with the Omicron variant.
With other variants, like Delta, the vaccine is still effective in preventing severe illness, hospitalization, and death.
Studies have also shown that side effects from vaccines are extremely rare.
QAnon supporters aren’t just famous for their outlandish theories regarding former President Donald Trump.
The far-right group alleges that cannibals and pedophiles secretly control the world and have been involved in some of the violence.
They also claim that the worldwide network of celebrities and politicians is part of a child sex trafficking ring.
According to data from the Institute for the Study of Public Religion, an estimated 15% of Americans support the main far-reaching allegation.
The strange theory dates back to December 2016, when Edgar M.Welch walked into a pizzeria in Washington DC and asked to see a basement that didn’t exist.
According to NBC, he believes the restaurant is part of a child sex ring, a conspiracy known as Pizzagate.
The frivolous “Pizzagate” theory reappeared in the trial of Jeffrey Epstein, believed to be Ghislaine Maxwell.
“Of course, the Q-Anons are crazy – they think Democrats eat babies – they’re nuts,” said attorney Lisa Bloom.
Stephan Lewandowsky, a professor at the University of Bristol, says Guardians: “I can’t think of a conspiracy theory that wouldn’t involve someone famous or well known, because no one cares about your grandmother or your cousin down the street.
“A conspiracy theory about someone you’ve never heard of isn’t going to be very appealing. You need a celebrity as a place marker.”
QAnon supporters are also known for espousing a range of bogus theories, ranging from ridiculous claims that Joe Biden is a cyborg who makes frivolous conspiracies that the world is controlled by lizards.
