Followers of the QAnon conspiracy theory have gathered in Las Vegas this weekend at the For God and Country Patriot Double Down.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that a "couple hundred people" showed up for the conference at the Ahern Hotel, owned by prominent Trump supporter Don Ahern.

The conference, organized by Patriot Voice, was originally planned for the Caesars Forum, but parent company Caesars Entertainment canceled the booking amid backlash from extremism experts and others.

Among the speakers on Saturday was Jason Sullivan, a social media expert who worked with Trump ally Roger Stone during the 2016 presidential campaign.

"We know there was election fraud, are you kidding? We're done trying to prove that it happened. We're about to turn it around," Sullivan told the crowd, adding that the burden will now be on others to prove they provided a secure election system.

Sullivan later led attendees in chants of "Sheep no more!" according to the newspaper.

"On the second floor of the event area, Trump hats and shirts were for sale at a merchandise stand with a 'Trump won' flag draped over the front," the Review-Journal reports. "Flags hanging over a railing that were visible from the ground floor said 'Trump is still my president' and 'Stop the steal.' ... Media access to the event was highly restricted. A Las Vegas Review-Journal reporter was escorted by event staff, confined to one area and told to leave shortly before noon."

The Sunday Times reports that another speaker, Alan Fountain, said he planned to talk about "the pedophile, blackmail and bribery system".

"A global cabal had been enslaving humanity, he explained, in an interview from his hotel room with the British YouTuber Nicholas Veniamin," according to the Sunday Times.

"Their whole goal is to feed off the energy of humans," Fountain said. "We are basically their sustenance and this has been covered up and hidden for hundreds of years, so this movement is vital to liberating humanity."

According to the Sunday Times, Fountain predicted a "transition to a 5D earth civilization."

"When this will happen, I don't know," he said.

"The more traditional politicians attending the couple's second conference this weekend included David Clarke, 65, a former Wisconsin sheriff-turned-conservative media personality, who felt it was 'about energizing the base,'" the Sunday Times reported.

"I'm not here to further Q or whatever that thing is," Clarke said.

Also attending the conference was Couy Griffin, the New Mexico county commissioner who founded Cowboys for Trump.

"I don't follow Q myself [but] . . . I hear some of the stuff Q puts out that makes sense. But I follow the Lord Jesus Christ," said Griffin, who's facing charges for his participation in the Capitol insurrection.

The conference continues through Monday.
