QAnon has merged with white Christian envangelicals, experts say -- and the results could be lethal

The House of Representatives has left Capitol Hill for the week, but the National Guard soldiers standing watch around a hardened post-insurrection security perimeter could have their work cut out for them today.

“We have obtained intelligence that shows a possible plot to breach the Capitol by an identified militia group on Thursday, March 4,” the Capitol Police department said Wednesday in a statement, noting that they were “taking the intelligence seriously”. The FBI and Department of Homeland Security also issued a bulletin of their own, cautioning that domestic extremists had formed “plans to take control of the US Capitol and remove Democratic lawmakers on or about 4 March”.

The FBI and DHS bulletin also warned that the “perception of election fraud and other conspiracy theories associated with the presidential transition… may contribute to [domestic violent extremists] mobilizing to violence with little or no warning”. House leaders were quick to heed both warnings, announcing late Wednesday that the lower chamber would not be in session the next day.

The reason for all the alarm? After the January 6 insurrection failed to stop lawmakers from certifying Biden’s win and the new president was sworn in on January 20, QAnon believers and other Trump-centric cultists repurposed a decades-old conspiracy theory to fit their delusions. In short, their new narrative posits that Donald Trump will be sworn in as the nation’s 19th “real” President on the fourth day in March, which was the date set in the Constitution for presidential inaugurations until the 20th Amendment was adopted in 1933.

2. So, let me get this straight...Trump was not the real president from 2017 thru today, then.

4. The article is interesting, but short on evidence that a majority, or even a significant

number of evangelicals have "merged" with QAnon. If true, there is reason for concern. Until some research has been done to quantify the trend I'm not going to take it very seriously.

5. I'm not sure how big a threat it really is

Though I know there are some evangelicals who have become sucked up in the QAnon cult. The so-called Evangelical leaders who made the deal with Trump to support him by using their influence to get him votes in exchange for his promise to deliver all of the things on their political wish list have lost their key to the door at this point. There is not a succession to the presidency that exists at this point that would lead to a defeated President getting back into the White House.

The "election fraud" argument keeps getting weaker and weaker as those who continue to pursue it in the states attacked by Trump's lawyers continue not to be able to pull up a shred of evidence that there was any. Well, Trump knew that when he asked the Georgia Secretary of State to "find" votes for him.

Mark my words, there is zero chance for Trump to win a national election.
