The "Pizzagate" pedophile scandal has captured the imagination of people across the world. In summary, Pizzagate arose when WikiLeaks' Julian Assange released emails hacked from Clinton's campaign chief, John Podesta. Those emails contained some references to food that were totally out of context with the message. The Podesta emails revealed links between him and Comet Ping Pong pizza joint owner James Alefantis and Marina Abramovic. As reported last week by the Inquisitr, performing artist Abramovic invited Podesta and his brother Tony to a "spirit cooking" dinner at her home.
It was soon being alleged that Podesta, Alefantis, and Abramovic were at the center of a high-level satanic pedophile ring that stretched all the way to the White House.The idea that Comet Ping Pong is at the center of a satanic pedophile ring that has links to Podesta and the Clintons sounds too fantastic to be true. The mainstream media seems to agree that Pizzagate is fake news. When Edgar Maddison Welch, a 28-year-old man from North Carolina, walked into Comet Ping Pong yesterday armed with an assault rifle, the media lined up to declare Pizzagate a "fake news story." Buzzfeed says that Welch came to Washington to investigate "a ludicrous conspiracy theory."
The Independent highlights the fact that the son of Donald Trump's nominee for national security advisor is spreading "a fake news story that claims a Washington D.C. pizza shop is a front for a child sex ring led by Hillary Clinton."
Michael Flynn, the son of retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, tweeted, "until #Pizzagate proven to be false, it'll remain a story. The left seems to forget #PodestaEmails and the many 'coincidences' tied to it."Flynn's comment perhaps exposes how the Pizzagate scandal is seen by many. Flynn notes that it is primarily the left-leaning media that have written Pizzagate off as fantasy. BBC News, the Washington Post, and the New York Times have all written Pizzagate off as a "wild conspiracy theory." The Times calls Pizzagate "a fake news onslaught."
The fact that the Pizzagate citizens investigation originated at WikiLeaks seems to be overlooked in favor of the idea that it began with alt-right conspirators who were seeking to smear Hillary Clinton in the run-up to last month's presidential election
Those who are investigating Pizzagate believe that CIA "Operation Mockingbird" could even be behind the mainstream media's willingness to dismiss Pizzagate out of hand. According to Huppi, Operation Mockingbird either is or was a CIA operation that recruited journalists and news organizations to present news in a way the CIA deemed friendly. By the CIA's admission, at least 25 organizations and 400 journalists became CIA assets. Many believe that governments around the world still keep a guiding hand on how news is presented.
It has even been claimed that Anderson Cooper, the CNN journalist who chaired one of the presidential debates, is a CIA asset. Cooper apparently spent two summers as an intern at the CIA.
So What Does Pizzagate Have To Do With President Bill Clinton?
President Clinton's involvement in Pizzagate has been peripheral until now, but the scandal is opening closets that both Bill and Hillary Clinton would have wished stayed closed. However, last month, the Guardian reported that during the second presidential debate, Donald Trump brought along four women who have accused Bill Clinton of sex crimes, including rape.
The U.K. broadsheet surmised that this was an attempt by Trump to deflect from allegations of misogyny and sexual misconduct by Trump himself. As time has passed, the specter of billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein has re-emerged. It is perhaps Clinton's relationship with Epstein that has the greatest bearing on Pizzagate.
Just last month, the Daily Mail reported that Bill Clinton had a "cozy relationship" with Epstein at the time the convicted pedophile was abusing young girls on his private Caribbean island and at his Florida home. Clinton was a "frequent flyer" on Epstein's private aircraft, dubbed the "lolita express." Flight records show that Bill Clinton flew on Epstein's plane at least 26 times. Both Bill and Hillary Clinton visited with Epstein on Little St. James, where Epstein allegedly kept underage sex-slaves.
Epstein's contacts even reached into the British royal family. Prince Andrew became involved in the scandal when it was alleged that Epstein had pimped a 15-year-old girl to him on the island. Last year, the New York Daily News reported that Prince Andrew and Epstein's defense attorney, Alan Dershowitz, had allegedly been involved in pedophile sex on Epstein's island.What makes Pizzagate investigators even more suspicious of Bill Clinton is the Fox News claim that Clinton traveled to Epstein's island without his secret service detail.
It should be said that Pizzagate investigators are also looking into Donald Trump's links to Jeffrey Epstein. According to the Guardian, allegations that Trump raped a 13-year-old girl also have links to Epstein.
Of course, Pizzagate is unproven. Pizzagate may well turn out to be smoke, mirrors, wild speculation, and unfounded supposition. That said, anyone approaching Pizzagate with an open mind will look at the links, the long list of coincidences and be left scratching their heads in despair trying to make sense of it all.
