Have you noticed how the Left and the Left Stream Media have begun to tell their listeners and readers about “Fake News”? Certainly, there is some fake news ran as factual. On the other hand, if you pay close attention, you will notice most of the actual fake news comes from the Left as disinformation to smear Conservatives or often down right just lie.
I have an extremely strong impression the Left’s efforts to shut down the Pizzagate scandal surrounding child-sex trafficking/pedophilia by some very powerful people which seems to have a bit of a connection to the Clinton Crime Syndicate.
Now to be honest, the owner of Comet Pizza – the central figure of Pizzagate – has been complaining of harassment and death threats of what deems as false accusations and a fake conspiracy theory. The Left leaning MSM publisher Newsweek has a story to highlight that Pizzagate is fake news with the actual fact a gunman came into Comet Pizza demanding to look around for a secret pedophilia room placing an explanation point on his demand by shooting some rounds into the restaurant floor. As you can guess some patrons were horrified that were there as a family with … err their kids:
Three days ago, the owner of Comet Ping Pong, a popular, family-oriented restaurant in upscale northwest Washington, D.C., took to Facebook to assure customers that it was safe to patronize his business despite months of harassment and death threats by far right-wing conspiracy theorists.
“There have been no hostile situations at the venue, and we do not anticipate any altercations…,” the proprietor, James Alefantis wrote on December 1. “But as we have before we now have security present at every show.” It was an unusual note from a business in the low-crime, Chevy Chase neighborhood of upscale homes, condos and shops that cater to the city’s professional elites.
Then again, the other businesses haven’t been the target of a bizarre, fever-pitch fake-news campaign by far-right conspiracy theorists alleging that Alefantis and his friend John Podesta, chairman of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, have overseen a child sex-trafficking operation beneath the restaurant. On Twitter, Reddit and other social media sites, far-right commentators have been frothing over the unfounded allegations. Beneath Comet Ping Pong, they charge, is a network of tunnels where pederast rituals take place. Even Mike Flynn, a former Defense Intelligence Agency chief who is President-elect Donald Trump’s choice for White House national security adviser, jumped on the sex coverup bandwagon. …
On Sunday, though, Alefantis’s assurances were shredded when a man walked into Comet Ping Pong with a loaded assault rifle, sending customers and their children fleeing for the exits. According to some reports, unconfirmed by a police spokesperson, he fired shots into the floor.
The assailant was identified as Edgar Maddison Welch of Salisbury, North Carolina. He told police he had come to the restaurant to “self-investigate ‘Pizza Gate,’ a fictitious online conspiracy theory,” according to the police press release. Welch was arrested and charged with “assault with a dangerous weapon (gun).”
According to the IMDB entertainment database, he is an actor “known for his work on Mute (2011), The Mill (2008) and A Tale About Bootlegging (2005).”
In addition to the assault rifle, police said they recovered two firearms inside the restaurant and another weapon from Welch’s car, according to … READ ENTIRE LEFT-STORY (WASHINGTON GUNMAN ARRESTED AT COMET PING PONG WAS ‘INVESTIGATING’ PIZZA GATE FAKE NEWS, POLICE SAY; BY JEFF STEIN; Newsweek; 12/4/16 11:39 PM)
The Newsweek story is typical of calling Pizzagate fake news. The INQUISITR has its fair share of critics from both the Left and Right, but most of the news I have read there appears slanted Left. So, the opinion of the website Real or Satire label of biased to the Left meets my assessment. Read that assessment HERE.
The INQUISITR seems to have uncovered some doubt that Pizzagate is fake news surrounding the character Edgar Maddison Welch private citizen investigation by gun at Comet Pizza:
For those who have been paying attention to the news lately, the “Pizzagate” scandal can’t have escaped your notice. Many people may find themselves wondering just what Pizzagate is and why it seems to have invaded every area of the internet. For instance, last month over a million messages were left on Twitter under #PizzaGate. Furthermore, Reddit has gone so far as to completely ban the Pizzagate board from their website after a wealth of information and discussion popped up surrounding it.
Pizzagate has become so big now that today, a North Carolina gunman, Edgar Maddison Welch, 28, was arrested after he marched into Comet Ping Pong wielding a rifle in order to investigate the matter for himself. Comet Ping Pong is the D.C. pizza restaurant that is purportedly the center of a pedophilia ring that involves people from the very highest echelons of the Democratic Party.
A gunman at Comet Ping Pong seems like a very convenient engineered plot to paint those exposing #pizzagate as wackos.
But to show that things can get even stranger, while it has been said that Pizzagate is nothing but a conspiracy theory and fake news, as the BBC have called it, it is now being suggested that perhaps the armed gunman incident today wasn’t even real news either, as Twitter posters have shown news stories appearing before the alleged incident even took place.
In fact, one Twitter poster in particular put up a screenshot showing that the D.C. gunman was making the news hours before the event was even supposed to have taken place. This Twitter post has since been taken down not long after it was posted and the person’s account appears to have been deleted.
Weird that the gunman at #CometPingPong was called in at 3 PM, but they were reporting on it nine hours ago.
From reading the above, you may find yourself puzzled as to whether Pizzagate is a full-blown conspiracy theory, a conspiracy theory with elements of truth, or a very real story of scandalous proportions. If you’ve become curious now as to just what Pizzagate really is, read on.
Back in early November, WikiLeaks exposed and published a large number of emails from John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman. One of the contacts of these emails was none other than James Alefantis, the owner of the Comet Ping Pong restaurant in Washington D.C. Coincidentally or not, Alefantis also just happens to be a huge supporter of the Democratic Party. Upon investigation, it was discovered that James had raised money for both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and had also been previously involved in a relationship with David Brock, the man who founded the liberal media watchdog group known as Media Matters for America.
But it wasn’t his Democratic Party connections that made some people suspicious. Users of a message board known as 4Chan began speculating that James Alefantis was part of a child sex ring connected to the Clinton Foundation after perusing Alefantis’s Instagram account, as well as the highly-interesting modern art collection found inside of his restaurant. This soon turned into a full-fledged scandal as politicians and Democratic Party donors were thought to be suspected of taking part in this pedophile ring.
For Pizzagate believers, there have been numerous emails from John Podesta that appear to have “code” words used in them. Words like “pasta,” “ice cream,” “cheese,” and “pizza” have taken on a whole new level of meaning … READ ENTIRETY (Pizzagate Summary: Conspiracy Theory or Something More Sinister? Gunman Arrest Reported Before Incident Took Place, Was Event Staged? By Kristine Moore; INQUISITR; 12/5/16)
The website The Right Stuff adds more credibility pointing out that President-Elect Trump’s future National Security Advisor Michael Flynn (retired general) believes there is something rotten in the Pizzagate scenario that needs examination:
Note: Be cautious! Do not to take this information and run headlong into conspiracy theory. Allow researchers to do their work. So far, David Seaman, who was fired from Huffington Post for reporting on Hillary’s health, has been vetting this information. He appears to be trustworthy. Make yourself aware of the information, use it to prepare memes and to make the lives of Leftists miserable. Do not run headlong into Illuminati conspiracy, that has been a failing tactic in the past, so we must exercise extreme caution around this topic. However, it has the potential to be an effective weapon, and we may need to apply pressure to the Trump administration to investigate and prosecute. To be clear: We are not advocating violence, or harassment or any form of direct action against any of the businesses or individuals implicated in #PizzaGate.
#PizzaGate is the current investigation into a pedophile ring which involves high-level Washington insiders. The investigation was sparked by WikiLeaks release of John Podesta’s emails, then Hillary’s 2016 campaign head. These emails contained odd messages which appeared to be coded language, similar to how drug dealers refer to various substances and quantities using code words. Some of the key words were: hot dog, pizza, cheese, pasta, and dominos. You can search for these terms yourself on WikiLeaks. Since the discovery of this coded language, researchers have been steadily compiling evidence.
I believe that #PizzaGate is going to be massive. The primary reason I think this is because the stranglehold of FakeNews, Inc., formerly known as the Mainstream Media, has been broken. The tipping point has been reached during the Trump 2016 campaign cycle as FakeNews destroyed their credibility in their desperate attempt to derail the ascension of the God Emperor to the throne. The second reason is because Trump will be president, and we expect him to appoint to cabinet positions, men who are enemies of the current power elite. The Trump election represents a coup d’etat, as one faction of the Deep State struck another faction through the release of information via WikiLeaks. It seems less likely that the information which is being published by WikiLeaks has been obtained by ‘hackers’, and more likely that it has been obtained by personnel in security positions and strategically leaked. I see #PizzaGate as a side-effect of the Podesta email leaks, though I think it will be an unintended consequence which has the power to convulse the political orders of the world. The third reason is that #PizzaGate will provide the moral license that we need to wash the scum off the streets. This information has the potential to inflame the righteous moral indignation of every decent man in America. It is that incendiary.
Global Power Dynamics
Let me take a few moments to contextualize #PizzaGate in terms of global power dynamics.
I view #PizzaGate as a single battle in a massive paradigm shift, which is realigning our our entire world. The Middle Ages was controlled by an alliance of the Aristocracy (Law/Violence) and the Church (Voice/Suggestion). The Renaissance marked the shift of power to control government policy away from Aristocracy and to the Merchants through finance (See Three Estates Theory), and the power of Voice/Suggestion shifting from the Church to the University/Media. The Industrial Revolution saw huge shifts in power from the Aristocracy (violence) to the Merchants (finance), and in the modern era we are controlled almost exclusively through financial means. …
We are now seeing power shift from Finance to Information. This is why the Alt-Right is ascendant, because our movement is digital-native. We sing the songs of the nation now, and we care not who makes its laws. This is the essential nature of the Deep State coup d’etat we are currently undergoing, as the control is shifting away from those who control finance and into the hands of those who control information. This is excellent news for the right, because the right thrives on truth, while the left thrives on lies. …
The problem for the Globalist elites is that the Digital Age has changed the rules. Now less and less can be kept secret, both at the personal and state level. It has become increasingly difficult to keep back-room deals secret, as WikiLeaks is showing. This is because the Deep State is composed of many competing factions, it is not a monolithic unit of singular purpose. Now those who control information can use their power to supplant those who control finance, and there is a lot of incentive for them to do so. That is the root of the battle that is unfolding before us. FakeNews, Inc. was the creature of Financial power, and they can no longer hide the secrets of the Globalist elites, at exactly that the same time that the populace has lost faith in the credibility of FakeNews, Inc. and we have an anti-establishment president in the White House appointing new heads to the three-letter agencies with the power to prosecute. This is a perfect storm. A confluence of events of incredible magnitude which has the power to reshape the world.
It is heartening that General Flynn, Trump’s pick for National Security Advisor is already aware of and promoting this issue. Take note of this hysterical NYT article noting that our ascendant NSA chief chanted “Lock her up!” and linked to a video titled “Fear of muslims is RATIONAL“. …
The Podesta emails were released on WikiLeaks in early November of 2016. This release is commonly attributed to a ‘hack’, but as I’ve stated, it makes more sense that this was a strategic release from an insider. The researchers have been compiling information on the pedophile ring and a few very strange things have happened. This is the smoke that leads me to think there is fire: the attempts by the system to censor and create alternative narratives. Notice this very strange fact about the two articles below, from NYT and WaPo: they are defending a tiny pizza shop. This is very odd in itself, the way these two papers are actively attempting to create a narrative around a single pizza shop owner. Why is James Alefantis so important to them?
The details are still emerging. They involve many images from Instagram and tweets and there are already a number of interesting videos. You can keep up with them at Voat.co/v/PizzaGate. There are already a number of YouTube accounts doing excellent work documenting the findings. I recommend you follow these accounts and watch and like their videos: David Seaman, Titus Frost: One, Two, Three, Reality Calls: One. That should be plenty to get you started.
A word of caution here: we do not want to become conspiracy theorists. We want to be informed and we want to prosecute crimes. This information is incendiary. Much of the evidence is rather circumstantial. If we can get an actual investigation, then it may bear fruit. I think the goal should be to investigate and spread awareness of the possibility, but not to become an Alt-Right Conspiracy Squad. This touches a topic which has been poisonous to credibility in the … READ ENTIRETY (#PizzaGate; By Butch Leghorn; The Right Stuff; 11/27/16)
In full disclosure, I discovered “The Right Stuff” is a bit of a White Supremacist website. Which for most people and usually myself, discredits their opinion. I’m not too with The Right Stuff. My White Supremacist conclusion comes from the last sentence in their About Page which reads, “Also we’re white and we’re not sorry.” Nevertheless, the speculation posited is well thought out on his paradigm of powershifts through the ages and that the information age empowers normal people toward personal Liberty over the whims of the present-day Elitists, And that President-Elect Trump just might represent the beginning of the information empowerment that by-passes the propaganda of the Left Stream Media.
If the Left Stream Media is trying to cover-up the reality of Pizzagate with fake news, then it is prudent for Mr. Trump to clean the swamp of these Elitist with Federal investigations – EVEN if those investigations implicate very powerful Elitists such as the Clinton Crime Syndicate.
Tony Newbill has delivered a series of emails to make you think twice about of what is fake news.

— CPS runs on a quota/bonus incentive system; the more children are removed from their parents, the more funding CPS gets. This, mind you, is the same system the Soviets used, and their intent was admittedly to break up and institutionalize whole families, as predicated by Karl Marx. According to marxist theory, all traditional institutions (family, religion, etc.) have to be dissolved, so as to give way to the creation of the ‘new utopian man’, under supervision by the ‘authorities’. This Soviet system is now going worldwide, under the refurbished language of monopoly capitalism.
— Poor parents are especially targeted, as laws are altered and reinterpreted so as to equate material affluence with good child care. Once again, the soviet method. Also, the eugenics method, that was implemented in the west prior to WWII, when Planned Parenthood boards were created, to break up and manage the lives of ‘unfit’ families, as they were called.
— As in those days, matters are judged and decided by unaccountable, unchallengeable, family courts, and enforced by equally unaccountable and unchallengeable social services. The result is utter chicanery and corruption.
— The child is much more likely to be sexually molested and even die when in foster/institutional care. It’s the same in every western country now. These facts are well established and quantified in the US and Britain, these still being the more transparent countries in the West. The tradition of ‘hushing up’ and ‘protecting the respectability of services’ that reigns in continental Europe makes it much more harder to achieve definite, credible data on these countries.
— This system is a grinding machine on society. The trail of misery it leaves must not be tolerated by any decent human being, nor by any decent society. We are now at a stage where the CPS system is being implemented all across the world, and it will reach even people who, for now, think they’re free from such hassles; people who are comfortable with these sorts of things when they’re just happening to the disenfranchised family down the street. People who, for now, are middle class, but who are nonetheless on the fast-track to poverty, in this new century of change into austerity and global neo-feudalism.

Antony Kidman died Friday after fleeing Australia when accused of the sexual abuse and murder of children in an elite Sydney pedophile ring. A month prior Fiona Barnett had filed a complaint with the Australian NSW police and Child Abuse Royal Commission alleging Kidman’s sexual and physical assaults on her throughout childhood. When the Commission opened an investigation the clinical psychologist suddenly left his 43 years with the Sydney University of Technology and Royal North Shore Hospital to stay in Singapore until he died. The family has refused to comment and Singapore police opened an investigation on what they termed as an unnatural death.

Nearly 400 children have been rescued and 348 adults arrested following an expansive and “extraordinary” international child pornography investigation, Canadian police announced Thursday.
The three-year project, named Project Spade, began when undercover officers with the Toronto Police Service Child Exploitation service made contact with a Toronto man allegedly sharing “very graphic images” of child sexual abuse in Oct. 2010, Toronto Police Service Chief William Blair said at a press conference on Thursday.
Police said their investigation revealed an entire child movie production and distribution company in Toronto operating via the web site azovfilms.com.
The site was run by 42-year old Brian Way, according to police, and sold and distributed images of child exploitation to people across the world.
Inspector Joanna Beaven-Desjardins, head of Toronto’s Sex Crimes Unit, said they enlisted the help of the United States Postal Inspection Service since many of the videos were being exported to the U.S. and began a joint investigation.
Investigators catalogued hundreds of thousands of images and videos of “horrific sexual acts against very young children, some of the worst they have ever viewed,” Inspector Beaven-Desjardins said at the press conference.
Police seized over 45 terabytes of data from the $4-million business that distributed to over 50 counties including Australia, Spain, Mexico, Sweden and Greece.
As a result of the investigation thus far, 50 people were arrested in Ontario, 58 in the rest of Canada, 76 in the United States, and 164 internationally.
Among those arrested were 40 school teachers, nine doctors and nurses, six law enforcement personnel, nine pastors and priests and three foster parents, she said.
Citing a particularly egregious example, she said police found over 350,000 images and over 9,000 videos of child sexual abuse in the home of a retired Canadian school teacher. Some of the images were of children known to the man and he was also charged with sexually abusing a child relative.

Atlanta is the No. 1 trading point for sexual slavery in America. Between 100 and 200 girls are sold into slavery in Atlanta every month. — Jimmy Carter on Sunday, April 6th, 2014 in interview while promoting book
The topics of sex slavery and human trafficking have gotten plenty of ink lately. Only last month, a study commissioned by the Justice Department showed Atlanta topping a handful of cities — including Miami and Washington — in the lucrative sex-trade industry, with projected annual earnings approaching $300 million.
Former President Jimmy Carter weighs in on the subject in his 28th and newest book, “A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence and Power.” …
His book focuses on the abuse of women, which he calls “the worst and most pervasive and unaddressed human rights violations on earth.” On radio recently to promote the book, the former president said, “Atlanta is the No. 1 trading point for sexual slavery in America.”
“Between 100 and 200 girls are sold into slavery in Atlanta every month,” Carter told Scott Slade on News 95.5/AM 750 WSB on April 6.
Human trafficking, sometimes referred to as modern-day slavery, comes, according to the United States Trafficking Victims Protection Act, largely in two forms: commercial sex and work servitude. The victims of each comply most often through force, fraud or coercion. Sex involving a child under 18 also is classified as human trafficking.
Steven Hochman, Carter’s assistant and the director of research at the Carter Center, said the numbers that Carter quoted in the interview with Slade — 100 to 200 girls sold into slavery every month in Atlanta — were “conservative.” In his book (Page 127), Carter puts the number at between 200 and 300 girls a month.
The former president obtained the estimates he used in his book from a presenter at the Carter Center’s Human Rights Defenders’ Forum, Hochman said. The presenter drew from studies released by The Schapiro Group in Atlanta from 2007 to 2011. Those studies estimated that 200 to 400 girls were being sexually exploited each month in Georgia.
Our conclusion: Sex trafficking is clearly a sizable and troubling problem in Georgia and elsewhere. As early as 2005, the FBI identified Atlanta as one of 14 cities where its offices reported having the highest incidence of children used in prostitution.
But by its very nature, sex trafficking is hard to track, even estimate. That’s likely true whether you’re trying to size up the profits or gauging how many girls are involved.
Part of Carter’s statement accurately quotes the estimates that are out there on the girls involved. The part about Atlanta being “the No. 1 trading point for sexual slavery in America” is off base.
Overall, we rate Carter’s two-part statement Half True. READ ENTIRETY (PolitiFact: Sex trafficking plagues Atlanta, but Carter overreaches in ranking city No. 1; By Nancy Badertscher; PolitiFact; 4/25/14 12:00 a.m.)
