Debunked: Biden signing "Blank" Executive Orders

In the C-Span footage, the bright lights and the low resolution of the video made it look like Biden was signing blank executive orders. This led some of the more imaginative QAnon holdouts to suggest they were actually blank (and hence part of some kind of fake Presidency). However, a higher resolution photo shows the text.

The text is also briefly visible in the video as he closes the document folder, so the sheet is briefly not being directly lit.

This is what always puzzles me.

Let's assume there is a fake presidency, let's entertain the thought that Biden is not president, is sitting in a basement in a tv-set pretending to be president. Let's assume that he does not have neither the authority nor intention to sign EO's. He is simply pretending.

Still, why would the paper be blank? It makes no sense, it would be the worst faking in history. You could even just print "Lorem Ipsum" if you were lazy, but a blank paper? No way. The conspiracy theorists think there is a deep state, some communist cabal running the whole world, illuminati and big corps pulling the strings with nearly unlimited resources. But they could not be bothered with writing a fake EO to seem just a little convincing.

It's projection. The same has been said about Trump.

Hitting the nail on the head there. Hahaha they always utilize a super complicated or unreasonable process to fulfill a said goal.

"There's something I don't understand" proves "there is a conspiracy to keep the truth from us".

People with a successful science education and/or an open mind know that not understanding things is the natural state of the world, and that it doesn't take a conspiracy to bring that about.

Would not even need to be fake. The text is always released, so just get him to sign what you are about to release. And they are not "fake" if they then go into effect, so I am still waiting for a conspiracist to show that Biden's EOs are not being acted upon.
