“The realtor found a handkerchief (I think it has a map that seems pizza-related. Is it yorus? (sic) 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.”
“It’s mine, but not worth worrying about.”
“Bonnie will be Uber Service to transport Ruby, Emerson, and Maeve Luzzatto (11, 9, and almost 7) so you’ll have some further entertainment, and they will be in that pool for sure.”
“I’m seated with the kids so little wired.”
“I stumble across a post that says something like “Hey guys, check out this cheese pizza!”….There are more people replying to the posts/threads like that. I in some posts, I see the words ‘child’, ’13yo’, and ‘CP’ in others. That’s when it hits me.. CheesePizza == child porn. I realize in moments that “cheese pizza” has got to be slang for “child porn”. WTF! I almost viewed some child porn. I felt sick. The thought that people get off on that stuff. The thought about how abused the children who have this sick perversion intertwined into theirs lives.. The bottom of my stomach sank. This is horrible. How can we stop these perverts.”
Cheese pizza is an acknowledged street code for child pornography going back to at least 2010.
On October 23, 2017, the Associated Press reported that corrections officer Stephen Salamak was arrested after posting a Craigslist ad seeking “cheese pizza,” a reference to child pornography.
- Pizzagate is a “made up” story.
- The perpetrators are “people on the right.”
- The claim is that she and John Podesta “were running a child sex-trafficking ring in the basement of a pizzeria in Washington, D.C.”
- Ordinary citizens believe that she and John Podesta are guilty of child sex trafficking either because they are “misguided souls” or because they were convinced by “right-wing blowhards.”
- The pizza place in question has nothing to do with child sex trafficking.
- Protesters showed up to call attention to the child sex trafficking ring they thought was located in the basement of the pizzeria.
- The public got so whipped up over this hysteria that one man misguidedly tried to “go be a hero and rescue those children” by showing up at Comet with a loaded gun, terrifying everyone in the process and demonstrating the power of false accusations.
- A year of words and catchphrases repeated over and over again, in a deeply collusive mainstream media environment, designed to discredit the public’s concerns without actually investigating them. See for example coverage by The New York Times, which from the outset deemed Pizzagate a “conspiracy theory.” Note the word “debunked,” as well, which was used from the beginning — when in fact no such thing has occurred.
- A distorted version of the public’s concerns, summarized as “child trafficking ring in the basement.” As someone who has followed this from the start, I can report with confidence that nobody has ever made this claim.
- Focus on a crime whose nature is highly suspicious: The gunman who went to Comet was supposedly there to rescue kids, but as National Public Radio reported, he shot “shot through the lock of a closet, damaging a computer.” It was later reported that Comet was under investigation for online child pornography, a charge the DC Police Department at first confirmed and then denied, even hanging up the phone on reporter Liz Crokin. To date, Freedom of Information Act requests — filed by Caplan (original deleted) and researcher Titus Frost — regarding the incident have not thus far been fulfilled, as far as we know.
3. When you were Secretary of State, did you block, impede, or otherwise stifle an investigation into one of your employees for pedophilia overseas? Did you threaten anyone?
4. Did you direct State Department employees to work with President Obama, the Department of Defense, and/or USAID to stop the “cultural practice” whereby Afghans rape young boys? Or did the US military have to listen to their screams and do nothing?
5. Did you enable, facilitate, or help in any way the trafficking of children to Saudi Arabia in return for donations to the Clinton Foundation?
6. Do you have personal knowledge of Saudi Arabia abducting US children for use as sex slaves? Under cover of custody cases?
7. Do you have knowledge of John Podesta and/or Tony Podesta “lobbying” or using PR and/or media influence tactics to shield Saudi Arabia’s reputation for coordinated sex crimes committed against children?
10) Are you aware of any criminal activity involving the trafficking of children by James Alefantis for others, whether using Comet Ping Ping or not?
11) Are you aware of child pornography on Comet Ping Pong’s hard drive, for sale or not? Are you aware that the Comet shooter shot at a closet containing a hard drive?
12) Child sex trafficking, online or off, is one of the worst violations of a child that I can imagine. You frequently talk about the importance of caring for women and children. Have you disavowed child sex trafficking? Used your power to help investigate?
