Joe Biden isn’t the only illegitimate president in American history, he’s one of many, according to QAnon. The newest batshittery from QAnon is that the United States used to be a republic, but then it became a corporation, but it’s going back to being a republic again — March 4, 2021 to be exact when Donald Trump returns and takes over, the first legitimate president since Ulysses S. Grant. Aren’t you relieved? Take a listen to this.
Some QAnon followers are borrowing discredited arguments from sovereign citizens in order to yet again move the goalposts. They're absurdly claiming Trump will be inaugurated on March 4, because the U.S. was "incorporated" in 1871 and all Amendments passed after that are invalid. pic.twitter.com/W0c8QqiOqu

Yes, friends, we have gone beyond the “elite cabal of cannibalistic satanist pedophiles” and now we are in the sovereign citizen phase of the meltdown of the cultural narrative into pure incomprehensibility and paranoia. Vice:
The latest claims being made by QAnon supporters echo those of the sovereign citizen movement, a group of people who believe they are not governed by the same laws as everyone else. That belief has led to violent confrontations with law enforcement have viewed them among the top domestic extremist threats facing the country.
“There was some crossover between QAnon and the sovereign citizen movement before, but I’ve seen sovereign citizen ideas about the United States being a ‘corporation’ become more popular within QAnon and beyond in January,” Travis View, a conspiracy theory researcher, told VICE News.
“It’s concerning because it means QAnon is borrowing ideas from more-established extremism movements.”
Sovereign citizens believe that a law enacted in 1871 secretly turned the U.S. into a corporation and did away with the American government of the founding fathers. The group also believes that President Franklin D. Roosevelt sold U.S. citizens out in 1933 when he ended the gold standard and replaced it by offering citizens as collateral to a group of shadowy foreign investors.
Sovereigns use indecipherable legal filings based on arcane texts to separate themselves from the legal entities the government has supposedly created in their name in order to sell to investors.

Now here’s the obvious: January 20 was supposed to be the day that Trump got on the Emergency Broadcast System and announced to America that Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama were being led off in shackles and that he was going down to the White House to go back to work. That didn’t take place. So this new and improved dementia was cobbled together. Have you stopped to think how insane it’s going to get after March 4, when yet another apocalyptic deadline passes? As I said, we are in the realm of kool-aide and comets.
