Deeper Into Pizzagate You Go, the Sicker It Gets..

Dear friends,

Pizzagate: Debunking the Debunkers

Major media reports on Pizzagate would have us believe that anyone who gives credence to this story is off their rocker. The term “fake news” rose to prominence shortly after this story broke in early November of 2016, and was quickly applied to debunk any report seriously investigating Pizzagate.

Only one major media news report (from the CBS Atlanta affiliate) has presented solid evidence of this disturbing story of powerful people possibly involved in pedophilia. Yet two days after it was aired, that revealing news video was strangely removed from the CBS website and replaced by a report on fake news about Donald Trump. This disappearance of a key news story and the undeniable evidence below suggests Pizzagate is a huge story that someone doesn’t want you to know about.

Note that the pedophilia issue has nothing to do with political affiliation. Though Pizzagate involves mostly high level Democrats, many Republicans have been convicted of child abuse. The most prominent case – which got very little press – was the conviction of Republican Dennis Hastert, who served as the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, one of the most powerful political positions in the Unites States. Hastert was sent to prison by a judge who called him a “serial child molester.” He also happens to be friends with Tony Podesta, one of the key players in Pizzagate.

Pizzagate originated from the Wikileaks release of thousands of emails from John Podesta in October and November of 2016. Podesta served both as chief of staff for Bill Clinton in the White House and campaign manager for Hillary Clinton. The Pizzagate story got its name from a number of strange usages of the word pizza in the released emails. Yet the most powerful evidence of something serious involving Pizzagate can be found in the archived Instagram account of James Alefantis, owner of Comet Ping Pong Pizza in Washington, DC.

James Alefantis

Pizzagate: Podesta, Alefantis

Alefantis with Tony Podesta in Podesta’s home

Alefantis is connected with John Podesta, as evidenced by this email exchange released by Wikileaks in which Podesta agrees to have dinner with him. Alefantis is also friends with John Podesta’s lobbyist brother Tony, who was named by GQ magazine as one of the 50 most powerful people in Washington, DC. John Podesta did not make that list, by the way, yet strangely, James Alefantis was included in this list of the 50 most powerful people in Washington.

All but a handful of the 50 people listed on GQ’s list are deeply involved in politics or the media, and many are household names. So how did James Alefantis, known only as an owner of two DC restaurants and an art aficionado make this list of most powerful people? Watch this video interview or read this 2015 Metro Weekly article on Alefantis and you have to wonder how he earned that distinction.

To explore this question, take a look at the archived Instagram account of Alefantis, who goes by the username “jimmycomet.” Shortly after the Pizzagate story exploded on the Internet, he made his account private, but a copy of the account made from the archives is available at the link below. But warning, be prepared for some very disturbing images, some of which are very sexually suggestive.

For those who choose not to explore the above link, here are three non-explicit images from the account to give an idea of this unusual material. The side comments are quite revealing.

Pizzagate: Debunked
Pizzagate: Debunk
Pizzagate: Debunker

Please note that the photo of Obama playing ping pong with a child is not meant to implicate Obama in this, though it does appear from the comments that Alefantis managed to get invited to a White House Christmas party.

These three images alone are enough to raise alarm bells. And if you look at all the images in Alefantis’ account at the link above, over half of them either are sexually suggestive, involve children, involve S&M, or some combination of the above. Several of them explicitly link sex to pizza, which is where the term Pizzagate comes from. One image is a poster promoting the film Lolita with an image of a vagina. For those who don’t know, Lolita was all about a man carrying on a sexual relationship with a 12-year-old girl.

Notice in the last image above Alefantis gives the definition of a chicken lover as “an adult male homosexual sexually attracted to underage males.” He is openly gay. David Brock, the gay founder of the popular website Media Matters, paid $850,000 in hush money when he started dating Alefantis (as reported in this Fox News article) to keep his previous lover quiet. What was Brock trying to hush? From his Instagram account, it is clear Alefantis has an obsession with sex and with children. Many of the images and comments are highly suggestive of sex with children.

Based on all of this, here is a theory certainly worth exploring: Could the reason Alefantis is listed among the 50 most powerful people in the capital city of the United States be that he is running a child sex ring which serves the powerful elite. And are some of the strange references to pizza both in the comments of Alefantis in his Instagram account and in a number of the leaked Podesta emails actually a code word for child sex? Another important question is why is the media debunking this, and why was the one CBS report that did come out removed and replaced in very short order?

The Podesta Brothers

Now take a look at Alefantis’ powerful friend Tony Podesta and his interest in sexual art. Here are key quotes from a Sept. 23, 2004 Washington Post article on Tony’s strange art tastes:

Podesta is counted among the nation’s most important contemporary art collectors. Inside the elite Chelsea galleries, he and his wife, Heather, are gossiped about. All the art stars know their names. In Washington, the couple is recognized, too. Podesta, 60, has ridden a long career on Capitol Hill to his current perch as a top-tier lobbyist. He spearheaded President Clinton’s successful 1996 Pennsylvania campaign.

Tony favors art with in-your-face nudity and social critique. A piece in [his] Woodley Park living room [is a] nearly eight-foot-tall color photo. [It’s] an update of a late-15th-century painting of the dead Jesus [which] replicates the original … in vivid color and minute detail [minus] the shroud, displaying his subject in all his nakedness. “You’ve got to be pretty secure to have an eight-foot-tall naked man in your living room in Washington, D.C.,” Heather says. Tony’s younger brother John (yes, that John, Bill Clinton’s former chief of staff) admires his choices.

Folks attending a house tour … earlier this year got an eyeful when they walked into a bedroom at the Podesta residence hung with multiple color pictures by Katy Grannan, a photographer known for documentary-style pictures of naked teenagers in their parents’ suburban homes. “They were horrified,” Heather recalls, a grin spreading across her face.

Essential Antony Sutton

 

Sutton studied at the universities of London, Göttingen, and California and received his D.Sc. from the University of Southampton. He was an economics professor at California State University, Los Angeles and a research fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution from 1968 to 1973. During his time at the Hoover Institution, he wrote the major study Western Technology and Soviet Economic Development (in three volumes), arguing that the West played a major role in developing the Soviet Union from its very beginnings up until the present time (1970). Sutton argued that the Soviet Union‘s technological and manufacturing base, which was then engaged in supplying the Viet Cong, was built by United States corporations and largely funded by US taxpayers. Steel and iron plants, the GAZ automobile factory, a Ford subsidiary in eastern Russia, and many other Soviet industrial enterprises were built with the help or technical assistance of the United States or US corporations. He argued further that the Soviet Union’s acquisition of MIRV technology was made possible by receiving (from US sources) machining equipment for the manufacture of precision ball bearings, necessary to mass-produce MIRV-enabled missiles.

In 1973, Sutton published a popularized, condensed version of the sections of the forthcoming third volume relevant to military technology called National Suicide: Military Aid to the Soviet Union after which he was forced out of the Hoover Institution.[1] His conclusion from his research on the issue was that the conflicts of the Cold War were “not fought to restrain communism” since the United States, through financing the Soviet Union “directly or indirectly armed both sides in at least Korea and Vietnam” but the wars were organised in order “to generate multibillion-dollar armaments contracts.”[2]

The update to the text, The Best Enemy Money Can Buy, looked at the role of military technology transfers up to the 1980s.[3] Appendix B of that text contained the text of his 1972 testimony before Subcommittee VII of the Platform Committee of the Republican Party in which he summarized the essential aspects of his overall research:

In a few words: there is no such thing as Soviet technology. Almost all — perhaps 90–95 percent — came directly or indirectly from the United States and its allies. In effect the United States and the NATO countries have built the Soviet Union. Its industrial and its military capabilities. This massive construction job has taken 50 years. Since the Revolution in 1917. It has been carried out through trade and the sale of plants, equipment and technical assistance.[4]

Sutton’s next three major published books (Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution, Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler and Wall Street and FDR) detailed Wall Street’s involvement in the Bolshevik Revolution to destroy Russia as an economic competitor and turn it into “a captive market and a technical colony to be exploited by a few high-powered American financiers and the corporations under their control”[5] as well as its decisive contributions to the rise of Adolf Hitler and Franklin Delano Roosevelt, whose policies he assessed as being essentially the same “corporate socialism,” planned by the big corporations.[6] Sutton concluded that it was all part of the economic power elites‘ “long-range program of nurturing collectivism”[2] and fostering “corporate socialism” in order to ensure “monopoly acquisition of wealth” because it “would fade away if it were exposed to the activity of a free market.”[7]

In his view, the only solution to prevent such abuse in the future was that “a majority of individuals declares or acts as if it wants nothing from government, declares it will look after its own welfare and interests” or, specifically, if “a majority finds the moral courage and the internal fortitude to reject the something-for-nothing con game and replace it by voluntary associations, voluntary communes, or local rule and decentralized societies.”[2]

In Sutton’s own words he was “persecuted but never prosecuted” for his research and subsequent publication of his findings.

In the early 1980s, Sutton used a combination of public-domain information on Skull and Bones (such as Yale yearbooks) and previously unreleased documents sent to him by Charlotte Thomson Iserbyt whose father was a Skull and Bones member[8] to speculate that it had played an important role in coordinating the political and economic relationships underlying the historical events Sutton wrote of in his previous works. He published his speculations as America’s Secret Establishment: An Introduction to the Order of Skull and Bones, which, according to Sutton, was his most important work.

In his book Between Two Ages: America’s Role in the Technetronic Era (New York: Viking Press;1970), Zbigniew Brzezinski wrote:

For impressive evidence of Western participation in the early phase of Soviet economic growth, see Antony C. Sutton’s Western Technology and Soviet Economic Development: 1917–1930, which argues that ‘Soviet economic development for 1917–1930 was essentially dependent on Western technological aid’ (p.283), and that ‘at least 95 per cent of the industrial structure received this assistance.’ (p. 348).

Professor Richard Pipes, of Harvard, said in his book, Survival Is Not Enough: Soviet Realities and America’s Future (Simon & Schuster;1984):

In his three-volume detailed account of Soviet Purchases of Western Equipment and Technology … Sutton comes to conclusions that are uncomfortable for many businessmen and economists. For this reason his work tends to be either dismissed out of hand as ‘extreme’ or, more often, simply ignored. (p. 290

Leading German Journalist Admits CIA ‘Bribed’ Him and Other Leaders of the Western ‘Press’

Leading German Journalist Admits CIA ‘Bribed’ Him and Other Leaders of the Western ‘Press’

I’ve been a journalist for about 25 years, and I’ve been educated to lie, to betray, and not to tell the truth to the public. … The German and American media tries to bring war to the people in Europe, to bring war to Russia. This is a point of no return, and I am going to stand up and say … it is not right what I have done in the past, to manipulate people, to make propaganda against Russia, and it is not right what my colleagues do, and have done in the past, because they are bribed to betray the people not only in Germany, all over Europe. … I am very fearful of a new war in Europe, and I don’t like to have this situation again, because war is never coming from itself, there is always people who push for war, and this is not only politicians, it is journalists too. … We have betrayed our readers, just to push for war. … I don’t want this anymore, I’m fed up with this propaganda. We live in a banana republic, and not in a democratic country where we have press freedom. …

The German media, especially, my colleagues …, day by day, write against the Russians, [these journalists] who are in transatlantic organizations, and who are supported by the United States to do so. …

I became ‘honorary citizen of the state of Oklahoma,’ … Why? Because I write pro-American. I was supported by the Central Intelligence Agency, the CIA. Why? Because I am pro-American. I am fed up with it; I don’t want to do it anymore; and so I have just written a book, not to earn money, no, it will cause a lot of trouble for me. [I wrote it instead] to give the people in this country, Germany, in Europe, and all over the world, just a glimpse of … what goes on behind the closed doors. …

[4:40 on the video] Most of the journalists you see in foreign countries … European or American journalists …, like me in the past, are so-called non-official cover. … Non-official cover means what? You do work for an intelligence agency, … but … when they [the public] find out that you are not only a journalist but a spy too, they [the CIA] will never say this was one of our guys. … So, I have helped them in several situations, and I feel ashamed for that. … I feel ashamed that I … was bribed by billionaires, I was bribed by the Americans, not to report exactly the truth. …

I was just imagining in my car while I was driving to this interview, I just try to work out in my brain what would have happened if I had written a pro-Russian article, in the Frankfurter Algemeine. Well, … we were all educated to write pro-European, pro-American, but please not pro-Russian. … But this is not what I understand for democracy, for press freedom, I am very sorry for that. … 

[6:30] Germany is still a kind of a colony of the United States, you’ll see that in many points; like for example, the majority of Germany do not want to have nukes in our country, but we still have American nukes; so, we are still a kind of an American colony, and, being a colony, it is very easy to approach young journalists through (and what is very important here is) transatlantic organizations. All journalists from respected and big German newspapers, magazines, radio stations, TV stations, they are all members or guests of those big transatlantic organizations, and in these transatlantic organizations you are approached to be pro-American, and … they invite you for seeing the United States, they pay for that, they pay all your expenses and everything. So, you are bribed, you get more and more corrupt, because they make you good contacts.  … So, you make friends, you think they are your friends and cooperate with them. They ask you, ‘will you do me this favor,’ ‘will you do me that favor,’ so your brain is more and more brainwashed, through these guys. …

TRUMP’S 666 CONNECTIONS ETC.

1. The Trump family bought and controls the most expensive single building ever purchased in the United States, at 666 Fifth Avenue, a street symbolizing money and greed. The building appears in the movies The Exorcist II: The Heretic and The Wolf of Wall Street. The 666 high-rise is also home to Lucent (Lucifer) Technologies and its RFID microchip (mark of the beast).

2. The Trump family paid $1.8 billion for the most expensive building on record. 18 is 3 x 6 = 666. It is controlled through Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump and her Jewish Wall street bankster husband Jared Kushner.

3. Another Trump Fifth Avenue property, the famous Trump Tower, is 203 meters tall = 666 feet. Donald Trump lives there in gold-enameled opulence on the 66th floor.

4. Donald Trump inherited his grandmother’s real estate empire when she died on June 6, 1966. Her name was Elizabeth Christ Trump. (Wikepedia)

5. Trump announced his candidacy for president on 06/16/15 = 6+(1 x 6)+(1+5) = 6-6-6.The 2016 election is 2016 = 666+666+666+6+6+6.

6. Trump claims to be the Savior – “the only one” who can fix and save America from disaster

7. Donald Trump is a self-admitted germophobe and “clean hands freak” who hates to shake hands with other human beings.

8. Trump’s first wife, Ivana Trump, told SPY Magazine that he kept a book of Hitler’s speeches at his bedside.

9. Trump commented publicly about his daughter Ivanka’s hot body and that he would date her if she wasn’t his daughter.

10. Trump said, “Hillary Clinton – be at my wedding”, and she came to my wedding. She had no choice because I gave to [the Clinton] foundation.”

July 2016Tim Kaine is a Jesuit. Like Hillary, he is also a senior member of the Illuminati’s CFR Council on Foreign Relations.If elected, Hillary will likely be unable to fulfill her term as President for medical reasons. Kaine (Cain) could then become President by default. Anyone familiar with Biblical scripture knows the story of Cain (Kaine) and Abel. The mark of Cain (Kaine) is the mark of the beast. Kaine and Cain. Coincidence?

Pedophiles, Sex Slaves and U.S. Presidents

When the the trumpets sound in the Book of Revelation, they announce the apocalyptic end times. Another coincidence? Read on… Donald Trump supporters view him as an independent rebel rallying against Washington…but the evidence shows that he is used as a “false flag candidate” to impose Jesuit right-wing fascism on America for a planned nation-wide race war. Not convinced? Trump claims to be Presbyterian, yet he attended Jesuit Fordham University for two years and then transferred to the covertly Jesuit-controlled University of Pennsylvania.

TRUMP’S JESUIT CONNECTIONS

The University of Pennsylvania is funded by various Papal Court Jews, notably by The Annenberg Foundation, started by Papal Knight and hofjude Walter Hubert Annenberg. Annenberg briefly attended the University of Pennsylvania in his youth and later established the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania. Annenberg is a Knight Commander of the Order of St. Gregory the Great.

Court Jew David L. Cohen is the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the University of Pennsylvania as well as an alumnus of University of Pennsylvania. He is also the executive vice president of Comcast. 5 He was recently named co-chairman of the leadership planning committee of the Roman Catholic World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia – the destination of the the Pope’s visit to America in 2015.

University of Pennsylvania could be renamed “Hofjude University” because of its enormous amount of Papist Jewish funding and leadership. The entire Pennsylvania area is controlled by the Roman Catholic hierarchy via the Jesuit provincial holding jurisdiction over Pennsylvania, the Archbishop of Philadelphia and the Bishop of Pittsburgh in conjunction with the temporal coadjutor government officials produced from UPenn and the following Roman Catholic or Catholic-funded Universities: La Salle University, Duquesne University, Pennsylvania State University, Villanova University, Temple University and Saint Joseph’s University.

Image result for trump towers 666

Protestants do not attend Roman Catholic institutions , especially counter-reformation Jesuit institutions like Fordham University, so Trump is at the very least an apostate for having done that. However, the story does not end with Trump.

Trump’s children, Ivanka and Donald Junior’s Alma mater is the University of Pennsylvania and Eric Trump’s Alma mater is the notorious Jesuit Georgetown University.Whether it be Trump or Clintons that ends up winning the 2016 election, these candidates are connected to Rome and will only serve to implement the tyrannical, neo-Romanist policies of the Papacy and its professed Jesuit soldiers.

A society whose whole idea is to eliminate suffering and bring all its members the greatest amount of comfort and pleasure is doomed to be destroyed.  ~Thomas Merton~

Earth Sets a Temperature Record for the Third Straight Year …and its getting “Significantly Worse”..

In a recent survey of almost 1500 scientists, not a single scientist was wiling to deny on the record that climate engineering/solar radiation management, stratospheric aerosol injection, cloud albedo enhancement had already been deployed.

In summary, not one of almost 1500 scientists was willing to deny (on the record) the climate engineering atrocities in our skies.

2016 has just been officially confirmed as the warmest year on record, by far.

2016 is the third record shattering warm year in a row.

We have now passed over 30 consecutive years of above normal temperatures on planet Earth,

and even now, individuals from the climate science/meteorological communities are actively propagating the blatant lie that climate engineering/solar radiation management will save us from planetary incineration (which geoengineering is making far worse, not better).

All available data proves beyond reasonable doubt that  illegal, immoral, and unimaginably destructive climate engineering programs have been fully deployed for over 70 years. Yet, the official denial of ongoing geoengineering continues to be pumped out from the circles of academia

Earth Sets a Temperature Record for the Third Straight Year

The modern era of global warming began around 1970, after a long stretch of relatively flat temperatures, and the past three years mark the first time in that period that three records were set in a row.

The Cast Of Criminals Who Purchased “The Weather Channel” For 3.5 Billion

The Weather is owned, the Weather Channel is owned by the same, the military and the powers that are Geoengineering us to extinction (see next article)

E.L. Rothschild LLC Acquires a Majority Stake in Weather Central, LP

Sir Evelyn and Lynn Forester de Rothschild’s Firm Sees Opportunity for Growth in Multi-Platform Weather Solutions Company

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–E.L. Rothschild LLC, a private investment company led by Chairman Sir Evelyn de Rothschild and CEO Lynn Forester de Rothschild, today announced the signing of a definitive agreement to acquire a 70% interest in Weather Central, LP (www.wxc.com). The world’s leading provider of interactive weather graphics and data services for television, web, and mobile, Weather Central’s highly accurate and personalized forecasting offers businesses and consumers a truly unique suite of science-driven weather information products. The company will continue to operate under CEO and founder, Terry Kelly, as well as current management. Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

The Cast Of Criminals Who Purchased “The Weather Channel” For 3.5 Billion

The Weather Channel Properties

The Weather Channel Networks are made up of television networks and products for radio, newspapers, digital cable services, and interactive television. The Weather Channel is received by more than 96 million U.S. households. Weatherscan, The Weather Channel’s all-local, all-the-time service, is distributed primarily on digital cable. The Weather Channel HD is a service for subscribers with High Definition TV capability and includes programming content shot in native HD.

The Weather Channel Interactive includes weather.com, and products for broadband and wireless platforms. The No. 1 destination for weather information on the web, weather.com reaches nearly 40 million unique users each month, ranking it among the top 15 most popular websites. In addition, the company operates the No. 2 mobile business in the U.S., with more than 6 million unique visitors per month.

Weather Services International primarily provides business-to-business weather services, particularly for the media, aviation, marine and energy sectors, serving over 5,500 clients in 45 countries. For more than 25 years, WSI has focused on becoming the best in the world at predicting, detecting, and visualizing disruptive weather.

The Weather Channel also holds a minority interest in Pelmorex, a Canadian weather company.

Defense contractor “Raytheon” does all the “forecast” modeling for the National Weather Service and NOAALockheed Martin does the modeling for the FAA. Since both of these private defense contractors are up to their necks in weather modification patents and programs, the “forecasts” are more or less the “scheduled” weather. Now, with the Rothschild’s acquisition of the dominant private modeling organization, the control of weather “modeling” seems complete. This control of “forecasts” and “graphics” provides for the constant visual conditioning that makes the population more likely to accept the constant spraying and manipulation of our weather as “normal”. When the nightly weather “forecast animation” matches what the public sees in the sky, right down to the upper level “haze” or “overcast” from the constant spraying, all seems to correlate, so nothing more is questioned. When the “forecasters” predict a hurricane will make an unprecedented 90 degree turn, and it does, nothing seems wrong. When they say there will be “heavy wet snow” at 40+ degrees, and there is, all appears OK. The global elites have, it seems, “covered all the bases”.

NEW YORK — July 6, 2008 — NBC Universal, Bain Capital and The Blackstone Group today announced the signing of a definitive agreement to acquire The Weather Channel properties from Landmark Communications. The Weather Channel will be operated as a separate entity, based in Atlanta, with management services to be provided by NBC Universal. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

The transaction includes The Weather Channel Networks, the third-most-distributed cable network, seen in more than 97% of cable television homes in the U.S.; The Weather Channel Interactive, which includes weather.com, the nation’s leading weather website, with nearly 40 million unique visitors per month, and a leading mobile business; and Weather Services International, a global leader in weather forecasting, with more than 5,500 clients worldwide. The transaction is expected to be completed by year-end, and is subject to receipt of customary regulatory approvals. NBC Universal, Bain Capital and The Blackstone Group announced on June 13, 2008, that they had entered into exclusive negotiations to purchase The Weather Channel properties.

Commenting on the planned acquisition, Jeff Zucker, President and CEO, NBC Universal, said: “This will further position NBC Universal as the leading provider of news, information and weather, both online and on television. Joining with The Weather Channel properties plays to our strengths in developing and programming cable networks, and in producing and distributing high-quality content across multiple platforms.”

Ian Loring, a Managing Director at Bain Capital, said: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to join our partners in acquiring the premier franchise in weather information. The Weather Channel is a true pioneer and innovator in the space across a variety of delivery platforms. We are extremely excited about the growth potential of the business, and strongly believe the partnership among the team at The Weather Channel, the management at NBC Universal, and private equity firms with deep media industry experience will continue to develop this unique media asset.”

Michael Chae, Senior Managing Director at The Blackstone Group, said: “This is a premier media asset with a unique position across all three screens — television, PC, and mobile — and exciting growth prospects in each of them. We are looking forward to working toward its continued success with the management of The Weather Channel, the team at our corporate partner NBC Universal and our colleagues at Bain Capital.”

Landmark Chairman and CEO Frank Batten, Jr. commented: “When Landmark launched The Weather Channel more than 25 years ago, we could never have imagined that it would become the multi-platform leader which 120 million people use monthly. While we are extremely proud of how far we’ve come, I know that as part of the NBC Universal consortium, The Weather Channel and its employees will have increased opportunities for growth.”

Landmark President and COO Decker Anstrom added: “The Weather Channel team has built an iconic cable network and brand, a top 15 website, the No. 1 mobile content provider, the world’s leading B2B weather business and the No. 1 weather radar provider, generating consistently outstanding financial results and wide recognition as a model employer and leader in diversity. We deeply appreciate the terrific support that the cable industry has provided, both at our creation and throughout our development, and we look forward to a smooth transition with NBC Universal, which has a great track record in building and growing high-quality news and information businesses, and its partners.”
