QAnon Sept. 24 Conspiracy Will Shock You, But Is It The End Of The World?

QAnon Sept. 24 Conspiracy Will Shock You, But Is It The End Of The World?

I always love it when a batcrap crazy conspiracy theory gets trumped by an even more insane one, and so, imagine my surprise and delight this week. I’d already been getting ready to write about the conspiracy theories surrounding the death of Queen Elizabeth, which included her being a lizard person, her being a clone, her being a body double for the real Queen who was an immortal lizard person who was going to now possess Meghan Markle’s body, and, not to be outdone, that she was assassinated as part of the plot to reinstate Donald Trump as president, known, like an ’80s hair... Read More

Biden Inauguration Signals Return of Presidential Support of the Arts

Saturday In The Arts offers an in-depth look at a local person, trend or event of interest in the Quad-Cities. It runs weekly on your free local media for arts and entertainment, QuadCities.com. What a difference a president makes. Beyond the relief of seeing President Joe Biden – the polar opposite of Donald Trump in nearly every conceivable way – be sworn in Jan. 20 as our 46th president, the glorious inauguration ceremony and related events before and after got me thinking about the role of the arts on a national level. Music, art, theater, dance, poetry and other art forms truly serve and... Read More

Famous Astrologer Says To Expect A WILD Inauguration Week...

Anyone else got a bad feeling about this? Wednesday will mark the inauguration of Joe Biden as the 46th President of the United States, and all indications are that it’s shaping up to be a wild week and strange start to Biden’s administration — and it DEFINITELY will be, according to one notable Astrologer who has predicted the election win and other major events. “There are multiple things going on on inauguration day that are worth discussing, however I said this before, I’m particularly concerned first about the 19th and then the night of inauguration day,”... Read More

Help Is NOT On The Way: Quad-Cities, National Vaccine Numbers Slashed By Federal Government

Help Is NOT On The Way: Quad-Cities, National Vaccine Numbers Slashed By Federal Government

With the first shipments of the covid-19 vaccine hitting Quad-Cities and U.S. hospitals yesterday and today, people began to see a slight ray of hope at the end of the tunnel of covid-19 and 2020. However, that light has been pushed further away by the Federal Government, with no reason given. In his public address Wednesday, Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker said the next two shipments of the new Pfizer coronavirus vaccine to Illinois and other states have been “significantly reduced” by the federal government, and that the government and Pfizer “gave no reason” for the... Read More

Quad-Cities Chamber Seeks Reversal of New Illinois Covid Restrictions

The Quad Cities Chamber is calling on Q-C and State of Illinois elected officials to support allowing bars and restaurants to serve customers indoors in a safe and responsible manner. The State of Illinois has placed additional restrictions on businesses starting Wednesday because of increased Covid-19 positivity rates across the state and region. While most businesses can continue to operate without further adjustments, bars and restaurants are being targeted with additional restrictions despite adapting their practices based on Covid-19 guidelines, according to quadcitieschamber.com. “As colder... Read More

Guest Op-Ed: Why Joe Biden should be an Honorary Iowan

(Editor’s note: QuadCities.com is proud to publish this guest editorial by Tony-nominated playwright Sarah Ruhl, whose parents grew up in Davenport. Ahead of the Nov. 3 election, former vice president Joe Biden will visit Iowa Friday, though further details were not yet available. According to his campaign, he plans to discuss “bringing Americans together to address the crises facing the country and win the battle for the soul of the nation.” It will be his first in-person trip to Iowa during the general election. He last campaigned here ahead of Iowa’s Democratic caucuses in... Read More

Taylor Swift Offers More Than ‘Folklore’ About Her Illuminati Ties

Taylor Swift Offers More Than ‘Folklore’ About Her Illuminati Ties

Listen, I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, “Wow! Taylor Swift just released a new album! I wonder which ex-boyfriends all her songs are about?” Oh, you naïve child. Taylor Swift’s songs have never been about ex-boyfriends, any more than Planet Ping Pong’s pizza menu has been about pizza. Of course, those of us who aren’t SHEEPLE all know Taylor (I can call her Taylor) has long been a tool of the Illuminati, and her songs have incorporated secret coded metaphors for the takeover of the world. “Blank Space?” About people having their memories erased and reprogrammed... Read More

Forget Q-Anon, It's Time To Go Down The Rabbit Hole To Discover A New Conspiracy Hero, S-Anon

Listen, I’m not going to say that Kanye West dropped out of the race for President of the United States just because I announced I was running. After all, I’m writing this, not reading it out loud. But I do find it coincidental that after I announced I was running for president last Friday, within days, Kanye suddenly dropped his 2020 campaign. Hmmm. Suspicious. Kind of like a lot of other behavior by famous folks lately. Perhaps you’ve been hearing about some of it. Certain big-name celebrities have been shockingly AWOL the past few months. Tom Hanks. Ellen DeGeneres. Pauly Shore. All of... Read More

Forget Kanye, I Am Formally Announcing My 2020 Campaign For President!

Forget Kanye, I Am Formally Announcing My 2020 Campaign For President!

Ok, so about 50 percent of you hate Donald Trump. And, about 50 percent of you hate Joe Biden. But, probably about 90 percent of you, whether you like his music or not, think Kanye West is pretty freaking insane. This week, Ye, as the kids like to call him, was more crazy like a fox with the brilliant public relations stunt of announcing he’s going to run for president. Never mind that he hasn’t formally filed to run, and never mind that he’s way past the deadline to do so or be on the ballot in a vast majority of states, so technically, he has no chance. The fact that he announced it at... Read More

New Epstein Doc on Netflix Follows Dogged, Determined Pursuit of Justice

New Epstein Doc on Netflix Follows Dogged, Determined Pursuit of Justice

America in late May 2020 turned into a dystopian hellscape of grief, loss, and rage. A relentless global pandemic has killed over 100,000 U.S. citizens just since March; 40 million are on unemployment; a nation has been tense, restless and confused in shutdown, and 75 cities were plunged into chaos and violence this past weekend as thousands protested racial inequality and police brutality – including looting, rioting and death in Davenport late Sunday night. So, it is oddly comforting to find calm, methodical distraction in a new Netflix documentary that recalls a different kind of terror and... Read More
