In October of 2016, internet boards and social media exploded with speculation about a child sex trafficking ring with potential ties to Comet Ping Pong, owned by James Alefantis, in Washington DC. All of this was spurred on by the WikiLeaks release of 20,000 DNC (Democratic National Committee) emails in July of 2016, and the publication of 2,000 emails of John Podesta’s, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, in October of 2016. It was primarily these two WikiLeaks releases, coupled with the FBI’s declassified document showing known pedophile symbols, that raised red flags.
There was also a widely-spread 4chan post, but I cannot verify its credibility.
Internet sleuths began looking into the “James Alefantis” mentioned in the Podesta emails, owner of Comet Ping Pong and Buck’s Fishing and Camping. They found his personal Instagram account containing disturbing images taken in his “family-friendly” restaurant. The accompanying comments on some of his posts did not help make matters less troubling.
Pizzagate/Pedogate General Timeline
Hackers Access Comet Ping Pong’s Web Server
According to a source, a group of hackers accessed Comet Ping Pong’s web server in November of 2016, roughly 2 weeks after speculation about a pedophile ring began. They found that the server was connected with 7 others internationally, some in the location of Embassies. However, it was the content and activity of the server that was the most shocking and disturbing of all. Videos of “little kids getting raped, tortured” were being uploaded and downloaded. In other words, purchased from Comet Ping Pong’s server. There was evidence of bitcoin transactions from all over the world.
They quickly turned all the “actionable evidence” over to the Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia, as well as the FBI. Notes were taken. Calls and emails were exchanged for months. Then silence. They tried to leak to mainstream media, but no one was interested.
Edgar Maddison Welsch Shooting. A False Flag?
On December 4, 2016, Edgar Maddison Welch, just a month after the hackers made their findings, walked into Comet Ping Pong and fired a shot into a Comet Ping Pong closet, hitting a computer. This event led to a media frenzy denying any validity of the pizzagate movement, more than they already had been. In fact, now they could say it was dangerous.
The People Trudged On
It became evident that law enforcement, the government, and mainstream media were not going to do anything about this matter. Less than 1 week after the shooting, /r/pizzagate was created. It quickly gained thousands of subscribers, all working to unveil what “pizzagate” was all about. Although the mainstream media claimed that internet sleuths were purporting that James Alefantis was personally harboring child sex slaves in the basement of Comet Ping Pong, this was rarely, if ever, the case. The movement was thriving, until 15 days later, Reddit administrators banned the subreddit.
James Alefantis Threatens Pizzagate Researcher and His Loved Ones
According to a source, upon posting certain speculative evidence online in January 2017, he was directly threatened by Mr. Alefantis. Over a phone call, Alefantis threatened to kill him, his girlfriend, his son and mother. Although he tells me he has not been threatened since January of last year, this alleged response lends credence to what pizzagate researchers have been pointing to all along.
Pizzagate Is Connected to A Much Larger Crisis
According to the creator of /r/pizzagate, “the 15 day long internet phenomena that occurred on Reddit in November 2016 known as /r/Pizzagate originated out of John Podesta’s emails released by WikiLeaks. The /r/Pizzagate subreddit spawned the Pizzagate/Pedogate movement that has now gone viral all over the world. This movement has been wildly misrepresented by the Legacy Media under the false narrative that it is a ‘Fake News Alt-Right conspiracy theory about Hillary Clinton running a pedophile ring out of a pizza shop.’ The Pizzagate/Pedogate movement is not, nor has it ever been a hoax of any kind.”
In fact, it’s about a much larger crisis. The world’s biggest dirty little secret that, for many reasons, has been mostly kept from the public. The international child sex trafficking ring. Continues in Part 2.
(Multiple attempts to reach James Alefantis for comment were unanswered).
