Events & Content Surrounding PizzaGate
Amendment I of the Constitution, “congress shall make no law…abridging the freedom…of the press.” (The Declaration, 33).
“When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle.” (Edmund Burke, 1770)
“But these oppressors know nothing; they are so ignorant! They wander about in darkness, while the whole world is shaken to the core. I say, ‘You are gods; you are all children of the Most High. But you will die like mere mortals and fall like every other ruler.’”” (Psalms 82:5-7, NLT)
Last year the public became aware of various scandalous and potentially salacious behaviors, through the release of emails from the DNC and John Podesta and unclassified emails from Hillary Clinton; these were released through the site known as WikiLeaks and from the State Department, respectively. The validity of the emails has never or rarely been the subject of the controversy, and some emails have been authenticated. An attempt will be made to provide proper evidence gathered by other researchers and from mainstream media at the time of the events and after. This in no way will be comprehensive, because to do so would be to take on a great task which needs the collaboration of many. The hope is that this will be a fair presentation of those who believe serious corruption and abuse of children has occurred in powerful political circles, and to push for public support of an investigation into those who engage in and providers of child and adult sex and drug trafficking, particularly within the political and intelligence world and how it influences policies.
Before any hacked emails were released, a breach was reported by the DNC in April 2016, and they hired CrowdStrike to look into whom the perpetuators were (Nakashima). According to the information gathered from CrowdStrike, the threat was deemed to be coming from Russian hackers; and as CrowdStrike’s President, Shawn Henry, noted, hacking is a way of getting more info from a foreign adversary (Nakashima). However, no credible evidence has yet come forth from any investigations into Russia hacking the emails.
In between this time and the subsequent release of the DNC emails on the 22nd, Seth Rich, a DNC staffer, was murdered on July 10, 2016 near his apartment. His father, as reported by the Washington Post, believed his son was murdered as he tried to resist a robbery gone wrong (Herman and Williams). The murder of Seth Rich is suspicious to some who have been following the PizzaGate scandal as well as the release of emails from the DNC. Three months after his death the Profiling Project, consisting of students of forensic psychology published a report saying the murder was not some random robbery gone wrong, but done by a hired killer or serial killer (Kutner). A program run of Fox News had Wheeler, a former investigator into the Rich murder, say that he believed along with an unidentified federal investigator that Rich had released many emails from the DNC to Guy MacFayden, however Wheeler took almost his whole statement back several days later (Kutner). The article by Malia Zimmerman of Fox news has since been taken down, but a small section of it remained on Brietbart with the link now showing a 404 error (Breitbart News). Guy MacFayden died of lung cancer on October 22, 2016 and was the founder of the Center for Investigative Journalism and had many personal and professional ties to Julian Assange (Roberts).
Next, was the release of DNC emails on July 22, and among the emails were “discussions of Clinton’s chief rival for the presidential nomination, Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.); details of perks provided to party donors attending the convention; and email exchanges between party officials, journalists and others.” (Hamburger and Tumulty). Evidence came to light of an active sabotage of Sanders’ bid for party nomination, as well as promoting disorder around Trump rallies in a practice known as bird dogging. Then came the release of Podesta’s emails, on October 7, within one hour of Access Hollywood’s video of Trump bragging on how he could get women (Sharockman). According to an article titled Dissecting the PizzaGate Theories, Podesta’s emails were reviewed by certain Reddit users (Aisch, Huang and Kang). They go on to mention the emails that started the conspiracy, that code words were being used, and that these code words implied pedophilia to some in the Reddit group and other sites devoted to researching the leaks. A WikiLeaks document from the FBI reveals that symbols are used by pedophiles to indicate child sexual preferences.
Some of the mainstream press on WikiLeaks has attempted to highlight what are the most revealing of emails, in their opinion. In the article from the BBC entitled, 18 revelations from Wikileaks’ hacked Clinton emails, Clinton aide Abedin, criticized her employer’s role in a ‘quid pro quo’ with the King of Morocco in exchange for a 12 M donation. USA Today published an article by Collins, which shows four of the emails from Podesta, one of them being on feeding questions to Clinton before a presidential debate. In the emails, we see press agents showing previews of their work to be approved by political leaders and associates. There is ample evidence to show that the media was doing more than simply warming up to Clinton and others in the DNC party; however, a story from the Politico paints a more cynical look into journalism in DC, seeming to give it the okay, but just short of an endorsement (Shafer, J). Mr. Shafer states the problem lies in the power dynamic: “The primary reason Washington operators can dictate the terms of engagement with Washington journalists is that the true insiders are few and the journalists are many.”
Although Comey had made an announcement in July that Clinton’s private server was reckless, he did not believe prosecuting was warranted (Collinson and Kopan), some new evidence later came to light on. Comey announced on October 28, 2016, the FBI was once again investigating Hillary as they “had discovered e-mails that were potentially relevant to the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private server.”(Mayer). The source of these extra emails came from the FBI and several law enforcement agencies looking through Weiner’s laptop and phone due to the discovery of an online relationship with a teen in North Caroline in September (Short). There was also a photo in August that was discovered showed a snap with his private parts showing under his pants, while his sleeping son lie close enough to be in the picture, which warranted a standard investigation by CPS (AP). Some emails from Clinton deemed unclassified have been released by the State Department and have been used to show relationships in the PizzaGate theory.
Regarding the leaks it has been widely disseminated that it was Russian hackers who leaked them to WikiLeaks, but there is another opinion on the DNC leaks: that they were an inside job. In an article published by The Nation, and given a large introduction by the editor, the author Lawrence explains how VIPS (Veterans Intelligence for Professional Sanity), conducted their own assimilation of data with use of two insiders, and had Skip Follen, former IT exec for IBM, to help with the investigation. It is alarming how much the major intelligence agencies in the US neither gave, and even implied, they had no solid evidence of Russian hacking into the emails (Lawrence). The article states that (as of the date of publication of article) the FBI had not looked into the DNC’s servers, which would mean the private company CrowdStrike has had more information allowed to them then the FBI. This, along with data collected by the VIPS, has led to some speculating that only an inside job could explain the release of emails in the manner in which they were released.
The North Carolina gunman who stormed Comet Ping pong on December 4, 2016, looking for evidence of PizzaGate (Siddiqui and Svruluga), is actually an actor who has worked on various movies. If he was paid to be a crisis actor as the possibility is discussed in the essay, Debunking the New York Times’ Debunking of Pizzagate, then the question would be who paid him and why? (sonofsatire). His IMDB page shows a list of movies he has helped with (IMDb).

The other issue that surfaced at the time was a colossal error in judgment by one of the contractors’ employees in hiring an adolescent boy dancer for some sort of event that, at least to most folks, looked very inappropriate. The Post is now looking at the dancing boy, which was not included in the April 17, article, and we expect will soon publish a story on it. The Post inquiry at this point focuses only on confirming whether or not there’s an OIG investigation. We are, of course, referring the Post to the OIG on such a question. However, the premise for the question raises the issue again in some eye-popping rhetoric which could feature in the follow-up story, so I wanted to make sure everyone had a heads-up. We have already relieved the folks involved with both incidents and I am meeting with the firm’s CEO today to hear his report on his trip to Afghanistan and Iraq to address these, as well as other, issues on which we have demanded corrective actions. I’m attaching the original note to Deputy Secretary Lew at the time of the original inquiry which lays out both issues, a copy of the memo the INL section at Embassy Kabul provided to Post Management on the most recent Post inquiry, as well as the Post inquiry itself for context. David. Incoming from Post: “According to my reporting, the week of April 13th, the DynCorp regional commander from Konduz, Flint Chambers, allowed his men to hire a 15-year-old boy dancer to do tribal dances at a DynCorp party on the training site. Some 15 or so DynCorp employees in attendance pulled out a single chair and had the boy do mock lap dances. This was captured on video. The video shows DynCorp employees putting dollar bills in the boy’s waistband, just as they would a stripper’s garter. The revelry lasted about 45 minutes. 74 UNCLASSIFIED U.S. Department of State Case No. F-2014-20439 Doc No. C05761691 Date: 06/30/2015 No sex took place. The video was leaked to Kabul INL program manager, Marissa Martin. INL Washington ordered INL Kabul to replace the entire DynCorp chain of commaand. The video was leaked by Mike Gonzalez to another DynCorp employee who emailed the video to Martin. Flint Chambers retaliated against Mike by spitting in his face, pushing him to the ground in front of the DynCorp security building in Kabul. Chambers was fired, along with Dean Deines, Stan Knee and David Kelly. Can you confirm that the IG is looking into this? (in addition to the Kurt Schafer incident) Thank you, Ellen Nakashima The Washington Post” From: Nash, Ardenia R (INL/FO) Sent: Thursday, April 16, 2009 5:56 PM To: Johnson, David T Subject: FINAL version – Note to Lew – Dyncorp «Dyncorps Sec Note.doc>> «Kabul Memo Washington Post 5 June.docx>> 25

Curators and Researchers
There are two important websites that have listed all revealing and damaging emails and documents: https://our.wikileaks.org/Pizzagate and http://www.mostdamagingwikileaks.com/. Pizzagate.com was a site which had gathered useful social media information from the major players surrounding this theory. Unfortunately, the person who ran this website has taken it down as they were experiencing strange coincidences and started fearing for their lives. However, there are still those who have curated some of the information that was found on this site. The twitter devoted to PizzaGate has had their account suspended.
Please look into these sites before you conclude with the totality of the mainstream media and snopes.com that this is a ‘debunked theory’. It is a theory that has not been fully tested, and therefore cannot fully be denied or accepted. Investigations are often conducted in part based on public interest, as it is supposed to also be the public they are doing their civil duties for. With more good people who condone slavery of all kinds, this issue will not go away until it is exhaustively investigated by the proper authorities.
People of Note
(continued for next post)
Hillary and Bill Clinton
Since Marina Abramovic is in the emails between Tony Podesta, and forwarded to John and Mary Podesta, and also evidenced in unclassified State Department documents from Hillary Clinton’s email as someone she has been around (10. “Spirit Cooking”, Most Damaging WikiLeaks), it is important to discover who she is. Even though in an article by the Huffington Post they dismissed this “performance art” as merely art and nothing to do with Satanism (Trump Supporters Hilariously Mistake Famous Artist for ‘Spooky Occult’ Leader, Frank), the images from her ‘art’ involve bodily fluids, presumably faux fluids, being put together. She is described as a performance artist who makes no art apart from displaying herself and others as art themselves. In Mark Vallen’s webpage he wrote a piece called, Sprit Cooking with Marina Abramovic: The First cut is the Deepest, he called John Podesta one of her biggest supporters, but pointed out he did not in fact attend the spirit cooking dinner from the email in question. Even though Vallen criticizes her work, he also criticizes those who believe her work is Satanic, calling the fundraiser, where a graphic cake of a naked human woman was made and macabrely cut with sharp knives and served by shirtless young men, for celebrities and rich donors, “good clean innocent fun.” The video clip of this event is imbedded in this article. Marina Abramovic is seen on this site with a woman who appears to be pretending to be dead and also faux menstruating for some sort of event, while Marina and Lady GaGa and other gather around, some with spoons in their mouths showing they have eaten from this ‘display’ (Lady GaGA no makeup).
