Having lived through Watergate (Nixon’s illegal wiretapping), Twittergate (The revelation that child pornography was being shared between thousands of Twitter accounts), and even Nipplegate (Janet Jackson’s bared breast during the halftime show of Super Bowl XXXVIII), what could possibly be the next Scandalgate?
The answer sounds like a delicious meal option: PIZZAGATE!
But, in reality, Pizzagate is far from yummy. It is a very distasteful dish indeed.
The allegation is that Hillary and Bill Clinton used the popular Comet Ping Pong pizza restaurant in Washington, D.C., as a front for a pedophile sex ring; the back room was supposedly used by high-powered elites for kidnapping and trafficking children.
Around October 9, 2016, WikiLeaks began releasing cryptic emails from Hillary Clinton, John Podesta, and James Alefantis, the pizzeria owner – plus others – all seemingly involved in running a pedophile ring. Not surprisingly, pizzeria owner James Alefantis denies such accusations.
The leaked emails contained jargon or code words, including pizza, pasta, cheese and hotdog. Researchers speculate that those words stand for girl, boy, little girl and little boy.
For a detailed analysis of some of the Pizzagate emails, read this Osto tell-all.
Alefantis happens to be a notable Democratic donor and Clinton supporter. An unverified, but compelling account on Steemit gives a statement by a young college student who, eight years ago, worked at Comet Ping Pong. “He reached out to Alefantis as a friend, who then allegedly drugged and sexually assaulted him. Around the same time, Alefantis was caught by former business partner Carole Greenwood assaulting her young son in the kitchen of Comet Ping Pong.”
Interestingly, the “official” story appears on Wikipedia:
“Pizzagate is a debunked conspiracy theory that emerged and went viral during the 2016 United States presidential election cycle. In the fall of 2016, the personal email account of John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, was hacked in a spear-phishing attack and his emails were made public by WikiLeaks. Proponents of the Pizzagate theory falsely claimed that the emails contained coded messages referring to human trafficking and connecting a number of restaurants in the United States and members of the Democratic Party with an alleged child-sex ring. The theory has been extensively discredited by a wide array of organizations, including the District of Columbia Police Department.”
Well, if the D.C. police don’t suspect any wrong-doing…
That hasn’t stopped other researchers from producing evidence which contradicts the mainstream media version.
When it comes to child abuse and pedophilia, most red-blooded Americans come together in agreement: such criminals threaten the social fabric and deserve the legal consequences (fines and/or incarceration).
Sentiment against child traffickers is so high that on December 4, 2016, 28-year-old Edgar Welch walked into the Comet Ping Pong to conduct his own Pizzagate investigation – brandishing a fully loaded AR-15 military-style rifle with a holstered hip revolver. He poked around the place and moved furniture as the panicked customers fled outside. Welch shot through the lock of a closet, damaging a computer. No one was injured by the gunfire, and Welch surrendered peacefully, with his hands in the air. He was later tried and sentenced to four years in prison.
Pizzagate is a scandalous rumor that refuses to die. A March 2017 Esquire article by Peter Wade reports:
“Over the months, Pizzagate has evolved into what believers call Pedogate. They claim the Pedogate conspiracy encompass all of government, which is part of the New World Order and teeming with pedophiles. This movement has been boosted on social media by Michael Flynn Jr., the son of General Michael Flynn who recently resigned as Donald Trump’s national security advisor, and David Seaman, a former Jezebel intern and unpaid Huffington Post contributor turned conspiracy theorist.”
We the People can thank President Trump for the recent slew of sex trafficking arrests, including local politicians, state senators, and nationwide rings busted under the FBI’s Operation Cross Country.
In Trump’s first month of office, there were 1,500-plus sex trafficking-related arrests, as compared to fewer than 400 such arrests in 2014, according to the FBI.
Liz Crokin shared an October 8, 2012 Trump tweet that shows pedophilia and kidnapping are important topics for him: “Got to do something about these missing children grabbed by the perverts. Too many incidents – fast trial, death penalty.”
It is refreshing, once again, to see our nation’s leader ACT rather than merely PROMISE.
Whether the players involved in Pizzagate turn out to be innocent or guilty remains to be seen, and the truth may never be known.
But it is clear that the rights and safety of children come first – as they always will – in the hearts and minds of all Americans.
At last, something we can all agree on!
