Is it a single person, a group, a movement?
One current "movement," if you want to call it that, is QAnon. Q signs have been popping up at President Trump rallies and even internationally. Who is behind QAnon?
One company that has taken on an investigation of QAnon to follow its digital trail is Logically.com. Here is what they recently announced about their findings:
• A Logically investigation reveals that QAnon communications are being consolidated under the control of Jim Watkins, through U.S.-based hosting company VanwaTech.
• Based in Vancouver, Wash., VanwaTech hosts only a handful of websites unrelated to QAnon, including the neo-Nazi website The Daily Stormer.
• The connection with Watkins was previously assumed, but the investigation reveals concrete evidence.
• VanwaTech also hosts several phishing sites posing as U.K. banks and cellular phone service providers, aiming to defraud customers of money.
• Since the removal of QMap, VanwaTech’s operators have made a concerted effort to develop the company into a safe haven for the aggregator sites that disseminate the conspiracy material at the heart of QAnon.
Lastly, there is the question, Is QAnon "Harmless"? Read the article and you can see how mentally unstable and others can be duped into doing harmful things.
