‘The Storm Is Upon Us’: Jerome Corsi Says 2018 Will Be The Year That Trump Saves The American Republic

Jerome Corsi, the right-wing “journalist” behind the bogus “Swift Boat” attacks on John Kerry and the equally bogus birther attacks on Barack Obama, now works for Alex Jones’ conspiracy theory website Infowars, where he has recently fully embraced “The Storm.”

“The Storm” is a fringe right-wing conspiracy theory that asserts that an anonymous 8chan forum board poster known only as “QAnon” is actually a high-ranking official within the Trump administration—or possibly even Trump himself—who is slowly leaking out clues about the fact that Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election is really a cover for an effort to prosecute thousands of powerful celebrities, politicians, business executives and members of the “deep state” for being part of a global ring of cannibalistic satanic pedophiles.

Corsi appeared on “The Hagmann Report” earlier this week to explain what he has learned about “The Storm” from following the “breadcrumbs” posted by QAnon and predicted that based on what he has seen so far, 2018 will be the year that President Trump finally saves America.

“The Storm is upon us,” Corsi said. “2018 will be the year of the counterattack that Donald Trump is going to wage against the deep state. This is going to be a battle of enormous proportions which will determine whether or not the American republic as a constitutional republic sustains or does not. Depending upon Donald Trump’s success or failure, we will have a coup d’etat which will replace the Constitution with a globalist, socialist state.”

“This is a battle of classic heroic proportions,” he added, “which is going to be waged on the intelligence front and the average American person would be unaware of it had there not been an entity like QAnon who had come forward from a knowledgeable position to start dropping the clues, the breadcrumbs, as he says, that will lead people to the research they need to do and the understanding they need to achieve to see how our intelligence agencies, our justice system, the FBI have been corrupted and how dangerous this is. The republic is hanging by a thread and it’s now going to be Donald Trump’s unique opportunity to save it and I don’t think there is anybody better that I can think of in the political landscape to be on the scene than Donald Trump.”
