Ron Watkins, the alleged true QAnon poster, is running for office in Arizona and had an absolutely disastrous showing at the Republican Party’s primary debate. Watkins asserted that the Keystone XL pipeline was responsible for provoking Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which he immediately conceded to be false after a rebuttal from an opponent.

“Ron Watkins, the man who is accused of being behind the QAnon conspiracy movement, was corrected on Thursday after describing the Keystone XL oil pipeline as being the cause of the Ukraine war.
Watkins was speaking at a GOP primary debate to run in Arizona’s 2nd Congressional District. The pipeline was meant to stretch 1,200 miles, carrying 830,000 barrels of oil per day from Alberta to Nebraska. But the project was halted by owner TC Energy after U.S. President Joe Biden revoked a key permit needed for it to go ahead on his first day in office in January 2021.
Asked whether he supports U.S. military aid to Ukraine by host Ted Simons, Watkins said: “I support military aid to Ukraine but I want to say that we would not even be in Ukraine if President Biden did not shut down the Keystone Pipeline on the first day [of his presidency].””
