Pizzagate Scandal: Shooter At Comet Ping Pong Pizza Undermines Citizen Investigation

The "Pizzagate" scandal took a sinister new twist last night when a man, armed with an assault rifle, went to the Comet Ping Pong pizza joint and fired into the floor. If you have kept up with the latest Pizzagate news, you will know that police arrested 28-year-old Edgar Maddison Welch, of Salisbury, N.C., who had walked into Comet Ping Pong and pointed his rifle at an employee. Thankfully no one was injured in the incident but police recovered two firearms from Comet Ping Pong and a third from Welch's vehicle. It isn't known whether Welch had been motivated by the Pizzagate scandal or not.

According to the Washington Post, Welch entered Comet Ping Pong at around 3 p.m. Sunday to "self-investigate" the Pizzagate scandal.

Ever since WikiLeaks released the Pizzagate emails, more and more people have become convinced that Comet Ping Pong is at the center of a satanic pedophile abuse ring. Many of the citizen investigators have accused the mainstream media and the authorities of either ignoring the blindingly obvious, or worse, of being complicit in a huge coverup. Those investigators will be outraged to find that the mainstream media are now widely reporting Pizzagate, and those covering the story have unanimously dismissed Pizzagate as "fake news."

The BBC attacks the Pizzagate scandal as "fake news" for the second time in a matter of days, calling it "a bizarre fake U.S. election story."

Pizzagate Summary

If you have been following the Pizzagate scandal, you are aware that it began after WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, released the Podesta emails. For those who haven't followed the scandal closely, here is a brief summary of Pizzagate so far. John Podesta was Hillary Clinton's campaign chief during the recent presidential election. The WikiLeaks emails showed a link between Podesta, Comet Ping Pong owner James Alefantis, and performance artist Marina Abramovic.
Abramovic invited both John Podesta and his art collector brother, Tony, to a "spirit cooking" dinner at her home. Abramovic is also connected to the Clinton Foundation which gave her $10,000 grant for an artistic performance called "the life and death of Marina Abramovic."

As reported in the Inquisitr last week, the origins of spirit cooking can be found in the preludes to production of the "Cake of Light" material, a sacrament in the religion of Thelema, which was founded by renowned satanist Aleister Crowley.

The Cake of Light is a ritual sacrament consumed during occultist rituals and its ingredients are said to include honey, oil, menstrual blood, breast milk, and sperm. Spirit cooking is said to be a modern version of the Cake of Light ritual.

Pizzagate investigators have turned up art created by Abramovic that shows her carving a pentagram onto her stomach with a razor blade.

See the video here. Caution: Some images may be offensive to some viewers.

Art collected by Tony Podesta includes paintings that appear to show pedophile activity and even a sculpture of a headless man believed to illustrate the work of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer.

The Conservative Daily Post shows some images of the art collected by Podesta and created by Abramovic as well as others. A strong stomach is recommended if you wish to view them.

Citizen investigators have also claimed that some of the art displayed at Comet Ping Pong depicts pedophilia and satanism. Of course, having a very strange taste in art does not make you a pedophile, but the Podesta emails also threw up some bizarre conversations.

In one message, Susan Sandler asks Podesta if he has lost a handkerchief.

"The realtor found a handkerchief (I think it has a map that seems pizza-related. Is it yours? They can send it if you want. I know you're busy, so feel free not to respond if it's not yours or you don't want it."
The Pizzagate emails make little sense and investigators surmised that the references to food made little sense unless they were some kind of code. They determined that the code was used by pedophiles and those with an interest in sado-masochistic sex.

So What About The Comet Ping Pong Shooter?

The Guardian reports that the alleged Comet Ping Pong shooter was "self-investigating" Pizzagate. Later news reports named the shooter as Edgar Maddison Welch from North Carolina.

In a statement, the owner of Comet Ping Pong slammed those "fanning the flames" of a "reckless conspiracy theory."

"What happened today demonstrates that promoting false and reckless conspiracy theories comes with consequences. I hope that those involved in fanning these flames will take a moment to contemplate what happened here today, and stop promoting these falsehoods right away."
Those investigating Pizzagate on Voat were quick to condemn Welch's action but speculation is growing that Welch is "a plant" whose actions were intended to discredit Pizzagate.

One can only hope that Welch's actions at Comet Ping Pong proves to be an isolated incident. No one, least of all Pizzagate investigators, want to see bloodshed. Welch's actions serve only to undermine the Pizzagate theory. Of course the mainstream media is now covering Pizzagate, but not in a way that any citizens investigator would have been hoping.
