Latest interview with Bernard embedded below.

I have mentioned in previous articles the concept of Corporate or Brand Voicing.  This is a marketing and PR "trick" to create a single and consistent "personality" for inanimate objects and organizations composed of hundreds or thousands of people.

Brand voicing is not a new concept, but there is little in the public domain (try a search) that defines and addresses this particular subject.  This is due, in part, to the fact that being conscious of it destroys the illusion that the mega-corporations spend millions of dollars to create.

Organizations spend a lot of time and effort to select "tones" of voice, vocabulary, syntax and other grammatical structures to get just the right "personality" for their public image.  The voicing rules apply to everything from CEO "quotes" and annual reports, to advertising and marketing efforts.  Let's look at some well-known examples.

Just Do It.  Burned into our brains by constant repetition, this phrase is rather offensive upon close inspection.  It consists of three monosyllabic words - a 3-year-old vocabulary - in the simple aspect and imperative mood.  In other words, it is a command one might give to a child.  The company's assumption is that its audience is uneducated, simple-minded and needs to be told what to do.  The simple aspect also implies a habitual action, i.e. without thought or conscious choice.

I'm Lovin' ItThis phrase is slightly more complex, using the present continuous aspect, but very casual with contractions that are dialectical.  We now have a word with two syllables, so the audience is assumed to be 5 or 6 years old.  Since the phrase is in the first person, it is either pretending to be the viewer's inner voice, or the voice of the faces in the advertisements.  In the latter case, we are expected to follow their example because we are mindless cattle that need to be led.  The present continuous aspect also tells us this is an on-going activity that has yet to stop.

We Power Transactions That Drive Commerce.  Here we have the present simple aspect, meaning a fact or habitual/cyclical action, but this is obviously talking to a much more educated audience.  There are several polysyllabic words, a subordinating conjunction, and the verbs are being used in conceptual contexts with both implying action and/or force, i.e. dynamic.  Notice too that the phrase is simply making the audience aware of a fact, not trying to induce some action.  If the audience is involved in commercial transactions, then it is already using the product - probably without knowing it.

These examples are offered to encourage the reader to critically examine the "voices" of the Q Phenomenon.  I believe I have identified at least four separate "voices" in the Q Drops - The Executive, The General, The Analyst, and The AI.

Each of the "voices" uses specific language and syntax to elicit specific reactions in the audience.  In some cases, the "voices" are mixed in a single Drop, but in most cases, each "voice" posts separately, so as to avoid mixing messages.  In some cases, Q will quote its past Drops, and in nearly every case I can find, it is one of the "voices" quoting another.

In noting the "voices," I do not mean to imply there are only four people/things involved, but that whoever is behind Q has specifically developed four "personalities" to use for different purposes.  It may also be that a single person is using four "voices" to sound like a group working together.  We cannot, at this point, dismiss either possibility without further information, but I find it rather unlikely that a single individual would have all the resources needed to disseminate the volume and complexity of information put out by Q.

We will examine each of the "voices" with representative Drops.  As usual, I am using QAnon.pub for all quotes, which is one of the most widely referenced sources outside of 8-Chan.

Q

 The Executive is the Big Picture "voice" of Q.

The Executive concerns itself with political maneuvering and relationships among the players.  The Executive typically uses questions to encourage followers to create their own answers.  This is a common rhetorical trick that lets the speaker always be right, no matter what the actual facts are.  In other words, The Executive never commits to anything until a fact emerges that suits its agenda.

The Executive uses the "Royal We" and past simple aspect when confirming past "predicitions" that supposedly came true, even though there never were any actual predictions.  This is a nifty semantic trick and one of the prime means by which Q convinces followers that it has insider access.

The Executive also uses a general cheerleader tone.  Words and phrases like, "You have more than you know," and "Trust yourself," are specifically used to create a sense of empowerment in followers.

A trademark of The Executive is the riddles and puzzles that preoccupy so many of the Acolytes.  The Executive capitalizes certain letters, times posts with POTUS tweets as "proofs," and its Drops are the ones contain the grist for many gematria and occult riddles.  An example in the above post is the line "[Avoided Z]".  There is no explanation and it has received some attention among the commentators.

Note, too, that The Executive is prone to grammatical mistakes that sound suspiciously like "Trumpisms" (ref. "bigly").  In the above post, Q mentions "all these attacks on 'Q'...is...," an obvious disagreement between a plural noun and singular form of the verb.  My assumption is that these are intentional, since Q likely has the resources to check spelling and grammar, as well as the time to do so.  Therefore, I assume that these "mistakes" are intentionally linking Trump.

Q
The General primarily concerns itself with strategy and operations, as well as nationalistic messages, and its signature is posting in ALL CAPS.  One can almost hear General George Patton addressing the troops.

The General commonly uses words like, "Patriot," "Honor," and "Defense."  These are trigger words designed to elicit an emotional response.  The General often implies that the followers, POTUS or the nation are under attack, causing a subconscious "circle the wagons" response in followers.  It also uses incomplete phrases and has the most grammatical errors (such as dangling infinitives), as if it is always in a hurry and transmitting only enough information to get the point across.

The General is the second least used of the "voices," since emotional responses cannot be sustained over time and lose effectiveness when overused.   This problem is best illustrated by the overuse of labels such as "misogynist" and "racist," which have nearly lost their ability to generate shock or disgust.

The General's primary purpose is to lend authority to the other "voices" and demonstrate an ability to enforce the rules and decisions of The Executive.  It is also the driving force behind The Plan and gives followers the feeling that things are under control, no matter how chaotic they may look from the outside.

Wow what a show!    President Trump on Tuesday engaged in an extraordinary argument with Democratic congressional leaders over his demand for border-wall funding, threatening a government shutdown if he does not get the money.   
 "I will be the one to shut it down," he told House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) at the White House. 
    During the contentious meeting in the Oval Office, Pelosi (D-Calif.) repeatedly asked Trump not to discuss the funding request in front of the news media.     "You will not win," Pelosi told Trump.    The meeting was scheduled to be closed to the press but the White House unexpectedly opened it to reporters just as Pelosi and Schumer were arriving at the White House.     The exchanged heightened the sense of drama surrounding government-funding stalemate between Trump and Democrats.      https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/420782-trump-democrats-battle-over-wall-in-oval-office-spat📁DZDsPa1U0AEa8sy.jpg>>4257129"You will not win?" - Pelosi You didn't think the largest MIL spending bill in history (FY 2019) wasn't going to [indirectly] include funding for the wall did you? Learn the Constitution re: vested powers of POTUS re: matters of NAT SEC.This was planned and forecasted as the 'border funding' solution from the beginning.https://twitter.com/inthematrixxx/status/977540875323691011?lang=en📁Anons had the proof long ago but shining a light back then would have defeated the primary purpose of showing the 'public' the real objective of D's (party of open borders/elim of ICE/elim of security/defend illegals over Americans _Midterm_elec).

Q

The Analyst assembles and interprets pubic information and events in a way that is favorable to the Q Phenomenon.

The Analyst is the most verbose and conversant of the four "voices."  It links various articles, images and events in ways that are meaningful to Q's past predictions and stated goals.  It uses a range of vocabulary and syntax that depends primarily on the desired response in followers.  It broadcasts victories and reassures that defeats are not as bad as they may appear.

The Analyst has the most important function of the four "voices."  It provides meaning and context to otherwise chaotic and meaningless noise.  It arranges headlines and other data in just the right way to assure followers that Q has foreknowledge of all events and a back-up plan for any eventuality.

For these reasons, The Analyst is the most quoted and studied of the four "voices."  It provides the talking points for the commentators and directs the research and efforts of the Acolytes.  If for any reason the Acolytes miss something, it is The Analyst that calls attention to it and steers interpretations in the desired directions.

The AI

United We Stand, Patriot.

WWG1WGA!!! 
Q

The AI is the quietest of the "voices."  Its primary function is to gather, qualify and classify data for use by the other "voices."

When The AI posts, they are generally short and contain little more than slogans such as, "Where We Go One, We Go All (WWG1WGA)," "Trust The Plan," and various forms of "United We Stand."  The AI Drops are rarely more than four or five lines and occasionally contain a link.  It is possible that it has certain triggers that cause it to post.  It never offers interpretation or details of any kind - just slogans. It could also be that The AI analyzes posts by the other "voices" and tags certain slogans based on content, which always appear at the end of the Drops, before the "Q" signature.

It appears that when Q posts long lists of links without interpretation or comment, these may also be a function of The AI.  It simply scans the internet for related stories that match its extensive lexicon, assembles them in related lists of stories, and then "drops" them.  I suspect that it is also using its q-analysis of the Acolytes and Qvians to see what stories are getting the most mileage, which are then consolidated and later interpreted by The Analyst and/or The Executive.

Summary
What should be apparent to the reader, especially those who take the time to read a number of the Q Drops, is that this is a sophisticated operation using four "persona" or "voices," each with a distinct set of rules and functions.

We cannot draw any conclusions other than Q uses standard marketing tools and techniques for its communications.  It could be one person using four "voices," dozens of people speaking as only four, or it may not be a human at all, though this seems unlikely given the publicly available information on state-of-the-art AI technology at this time.

We can say with reasonable certainty that the "voices" are designed - having a set of rules, vocabulary, syntax and purpose unique to each.  Each of the "voices" reinforces the others to create an overall impression of authority and confidence that inspires followers and keeps them on the hook, so to speak, to be activated when needed, especially to attract more followers.

The Q "voice" has evolved over time.  The original posts on 4-Chan had an angry tone and used a militaristic vocabulary.  As it has evolved, it has gained several "voices," each with their own tone and vocabulary.  The overall tone has changed, as well, from angry and vengeful to hopeful and authoritative.

Q's primary purpose is to generate and control narratives and perceptions of the current administration in Washington, DC.  It is designed, at least in the current iteration, to subvert the mainstream media gate-keeping function.  It appears to be tasked with unifying the "alternative" media in a manner similar to the way the mainstream media function - a kind of alternative wire service.

Finally, Q has gone through a lot of bother to link Donald Trump with itself using what are commonly referred to as "Proofs."  The Q message of unity, control and authority benefit Trump, and Trump in turn benefits Q with his Sign of the Q and various other "trolls" of the wider society (see decorations in Trump Tower, call sign of Air Force One [Q0] and official White House photos among others).

Is Trump capable of designing something as sophisticated as Q?

Regardless of what one thinks of Trump, he is a marketing genius, having turned his own name into a global brand associated with quality and luxury.  He would be very aware of Voicing, Branding and Perception Control.  Having had a hit television show also implies he is media savvy.

Without being president, Trump would not have access to the intel that Q appears to have.  Also, the change in tone and voicing apparent over the history of Q implies that it may have started as a function of some group within the US intel community, but that it was merged and refined by someone with extensive knowledge and experience in marketing and public relations.

It seems logical to conclude that Q was once an independent effort run by itel and possibly military elements.  Trump saw the value of such an effort and refined the tone and voice of Q to be more positive and to serve a wider function of "selling" his administration - and himself.

As Q is an evolving process/entity, we may well see future developments confirm or refute these assertions, though I am rather confident I understand at least this much of the Q Phenomenon.  Much depends on the ultimate revelation of the Q/Trump connection to the world that the Qvians are breathlessly awaiting.
