Pizzagate is an alleged conspiracy theory involving powerful Democrats, occult practices and child-sex slave trade. The story is based on an assumption that the John Podesta emails released by Wikileaks are coded messages rather than plain text. The word "pizza" appears regularly in the emails, and conspiracy investigators claim that "pizza" is a code word to describe child sex. The Comet Ping Pong pizza establishment in Washington DC is alleged to be at the center or the front group in an underground network that involves John Podesta and Hillary Clinton. Comet Ping Pong is owned by David Brock's spouse, James Alefantis. Due to his extensive connections to the political class, this pizza store owner was named one of the 50 most powerful people in Washington, D.C. by GQ Magazine in 2012. Theorists directed attention to Alefantis' social media account from Instagram, no longer available to the public, which he had posted many disturbing photos of children, with lewd comments and much disturbing exotic adult art. Many unsubstantiated accusations are leveled such as claims that the basement of Comet Ping Pong was the site for this illicit activity. However, Comet Ping Pong has no basement or underground tunnel systems. Also, the direction of conspiracy tends to drag in claims that the Podesta brothers were behind the abduction of Madeleine McCann.
The mainstream media news organizations looked into the story and dismissed all allegations, and during the Obama administration not a single law enforcement investigation of the conspiracy occurred. However, citizen journalists have attempted to document the allegations surrounding Pizzagate. The hashtag #Pizzagate can be frequently found on Twitter. Prolific users on Twitter that fuel the Pizzagate tweets are indefinitely banned. Also, the sub-Reddit r/PizzaGate was banned. This was quickly re-established on Voat.co as v/Pizzagate. #PIZZAGATE remains an active YouTube channel with about 6000 subscribers.
Alleged code words: “hot dog” = boy; “pizza” = girl; “cheese” = little girl; “pasta” = little boy; “ice cream” = male prostitute; “walnut” or “nuts” = person of color; “map” = semen; “sauce” = orgy.
Jeffrey Epstein is the poster child of the corruption of the liberal global ruling classess and mainstream media, for whom he procured underage teen girls from broken families as sex slaves for decades, escaped prosecution and mainstream media exposure, while amassing a personal fortune greater than $500 million. Epstein called taboos on pedophilia "a cultural aberration" and through science, the sexual liberation movement, donations to leading scientific researchers and foundations, and connections with the world's rich and powerful leaders, was attempting to change social norms about marriage, family and human reproduction.
Epstein owned numerous underage female sex slaves he purchased throughout the world, and also recruited other underage teenage girls into prostitution. The girls were pimped out to the rich and powerful all over the world, while the mainstream media and other well known leftist figures either participated or helped cover up his global child sex trafficking ring. The events occurred shortly after Democrats, in a straight party-line vote, failed to hold President Bill Clinton accountable for a series of rapes and sex crimes that Clinton is alleged to have committed, dating back to when Bill Clinton was the chief law enforcement officer of the State of Arkansas.
Fusion GPS and the 2016 Clinton campaign tried unsuccessfully to link Donald Trump to Epstein's sex crimes as part of their opposition research and campaign strategy. When that failed they focused instead on the manufactured Russia collusion hoax. After Epstein's death, David Brock's organization again through mainstream media tried to link Epstein to Russia and Trump.

In 2002, Vanity Fair assigned reporter Vicky Ward to find who exactly was Jeffrey Epstein and why was he flying former President Bill Clinton and other celebrities around on his jet. Ward interviewed two sisters, Maria and Annie Farmer. They alleged Epstein and his girlfriend, Ghislaine Maxwell, lured them into his orbit for sexual exploitation. Maria alleged Epstein and Maxwell sexually assaulted her in an Ohio apartment. Annie, who was just 15 years old, alleged Epstein sexually assaulted her at his New Mexico ranch.
In 2003 Epstein visited the magazine's offices. Epstein denied any misconduct. In March 2003, Vanity Fair published Ward's piece. Titled "The Talented Mr. Epstein," it took a tough look at Epstein's lavish lifestyle and questioned the origins of his fortune. It did not report the Farmers' accusations of abuse. After the publication, Carter found a bullet hole outside the door of his residence.
In 2006, federal authorities compiled accusations against Epstein in Florida. John Connolly, a Vanity Fair contributing editor, pursued interviews with women who had worked for Epstein. Connolly says Editor-in-Chief Graydon Carter told him he found the severed head of a dead cat in the front yard of his home. "It was done to intimidate. No question about it." Connolly stopped pursuing the story.
In 2011 Ward posted an essay about Epstein and his circle. Ward wrote about Ghislaine Maxwell in glowing terms as "always the most interesting, the most vivacious, the most unusual person in any room. I've spent hours talking to her about the Third World at a bar until two a.m. She is as passionate as she is knowledgeable."
In March 2014, a photographer captured a picture of Maxwell hugging Graydon Carter at a party sponsored by Vanity Fair and hosted by Carter after the Motion Picture Academy Awards in Hollywood.

In 2015, the ABC News team of Amy Robach and Jim Hill secured an interview with Virginia Roberts Giuffre. Giuffre wanted a shine a spotlight on Epstein and the others who acted with him. "I viewed the ABC interview as a potential game-changer. Appearing on ABC with its wide viewership would have been the first time for me to speak out against the government for basically looking the other way and to describe the anger and betrayal victims felt." ABC never aired the story or gave a reason for doubting the word of accusers.
In October 2017, more than two years after the Giuffre interview, ABC's Diane Sawyer interviewed Ashley Judd about her accusations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. At that time, Judd had not yet filed a lawsuit against Weinstein and he did not yet face criminal charges. Yet ABC viewers heard Judd's accusations in full.
Investigative reporter James O'Keefe of Project Veritas posted a video of ABC News anchor Amy Rohrbach stating that she had the whole Jeffrey Epstein story three years earlier, with video evidence and personal testimony that only came out in 2019. ABC News spiked the story of the most prolific pedophile in American history, raising legitimate questions about where the responsibility of a supposed "mainstream" news organization, that operates on publicly licensed airwaves, to protect child victims begins and ends. ABC responded by beginning an investigation to find the whistleblower who leaked the video evidence.
Republican Congressmen Kevin McCarthy, Doug Collins, and Mike T. McCaul wrote to ABC demanding to know about the decision to kill the story and questioning if it had enabled Epstein, preventing additional victims from coming forward. In a coverup, ABC contacted CBS after the leaked video, believing that a person who had access to the video was working at CBS. CBS then fired the former ABC producer.

In August 2018, reporters at The New York Times and other publications received word Tesla founder Elon Musk was relying on Epstein to advise him on whom to consider hiring as board chair or chief executive. Editors at the Times sent business columnist James Stewart to talk to Epstein. "I wondered why would Musk, if this is true, be using a registered sex offender to recruit new members to the board," Stewart told The Kicker, a podcast from the Columbia Journalism Review.
Stewart was not the editors' first choice to interview Epstein further. Initially, they had asked Landon Thomas Jr., a veteran financial correspondent who had been at the Times for 16 years. Thomas knew Epstein fairly well — having first written about him in 2002. For a 2008 profile, Thomas had traveled to Epstein's private isle in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The article largely presented Epstein as someone who solicited prostitutes, not committed sex crimes against minors. Federal agents had by then identified several dozen possible victims. The piece ran just before Epstein submitted to authorities in Florida for incarceration. It included this passage: "As his legal troubles deepened, Mr. Epstein gazed at the azure sea and the lush hills of St. Thomas in the distance, poked at a lunch of crab and rare steak prepared by his personal chef, and tried to explain how his life had taken such a turn," Thomas wrote. "He likened himself to Gulliver shipwrecked among the diminutive denizens of Lilliput."
After Epstein's death the paper reported on a public apology by one of its corporate directors, Joichi Ito, who had landed millions of dollars from Epstein for the institute he leads, the MIT Media Lab. In a tweet, the paper's media editor, Jim Windolf, said that Ito had sought funds from Epstein "a few years after Epstein got out of the Palm Beach County Jail."

On December 5, 2016, Edgar M. Welch, 28, of Salisbury, N.C., traveled to Comet Ping Pong to rescue the victims imprisoned in the basement of the restaurant. He entered the restaurant shortly before 3 p.m. with a rifle and fired it at least once inside, the police said. Welch demanded access to the basement, which does not exist. Welch was apprehended by the police and charged. On June 22, 2017, he was sentenced to four years in prison.
Michael G. Flynn, the 33-year-old son of the former National Security Advisor Gen. Michael Flynn, had been working as a scheduler with his father on the Trump transition team. However, the younger Flynn had wrote some controversial tweets about the shooting at Comet Ping Pong. He was dismissed from the Trump transition team staff on December 6, 2016. The Mueller team threatened to prosecute Flynn Jr., blackmailing Gen. Flynn to plead guilty to offenses for which the Mueller team and Comey FBI had no evidence of committing.
