Interview with Pizzagate Hacker, plus Saudi arrests
First we have an interview with the Comet Ping Pong hacker. He should be famous, but you've probably never even heard of him, or his story. The MSM did a good job at creating a strawman to debunk. No, there was never a sex trafficking ring working out of the basement of the pizza place. The only ones who ever alleged that were the people trying to disprove the story.
The *only* allegation ever made, in addition to the creepy ass murals, was that the Comet Ping Pong website was a clearinghouse for kiddie porn, and someone had to have made those movies.
Since the interview is over an hour long, I'll give you the TL-DW of it. BigFish as he'll be known was following the Podesta email story and like many others thought the references to 'pizza' and 'cheese' was code for something. This brought the focus to Comet Ping Pong where he found a login and members area of the website. He hacked the password and accessed the back end where he found images, movies, zip files, you name it. A trove of kiddie porn, spread out over 9 servers across the globe. It was unclear whether it was a place for members to upload and share their crimes, or a place to purchase files. There was a shopping cart that used bitcoin, so definitely a commercial component to it.
One thing I'll say about our hacker, he was thorough and persistent when contacting the law. DCPD blew him off at first. So did the FBI. Right after contacting the FBI, Edgar Maddison Welch entered the premises and shot off a round from an assault rifle. That bullet magically pierced the hard drive of Comet Ping Pong's server. Quite a shot for a guy who fired into the floor of a building that had no basement.
Edgar Welch was already in big trouble. About a month earlier, he intentionally drove his car into a group of pedestrians. Vehicular assault, perhaps attempted murder. The records from this case, and the CPP case, are unavailable through FOIA requests.
After the shooting, DCPD appeared to take interest in our hacker's story, but eventually the detective assigned to the case went dark and stopped responding to emails. By the way, do you know what they do to police officers who beat their wives and pass out drunk on the sidewalk with their service revolver exposed? In DC, they make him police chief.
About this time, BigFish came home one day to find his mail opened. Then his company vehicle got T-Boned while parked in his quiet cul-de-sac. A guy was at his window and ran off when he approached. Then one night his neighbor calls the cops because there's a guy in full camo and a ski mask hiding in his bushes. The cops said he was breaking into cars, but he lived two states away.
Despite BigFish's persistence in verifying that the detective had received his information and was still working the case, a FOIA request returned no information regarding an investigation into Comet or James Alefantis.
This week, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (or MBS and the acronym lovers say) just arrested 11 members of the royal family in what is called an anti-corruption crackdown. Notably arrested was Prince Alaweed bin Talal, one of the world's richest investors. He owns a larger share of Twitter than @jack does, and also the Four Seasons Las Vegas, which is located on the top floors of -wait for it - Mandalay Bay.
The alt-right underground is claiming these stories, as well as the Las Vegas shooting and 9/11, are connected. The allegation is that the Saudi corruption includes human trafficking, the guilty parties are in league with the main characters from the Pizzagate cabal, and Trump cut a deal with the ascendant prince to engage the wheels of justice. If the story is to be believed, the players involved have been too powerful to take down. The only way it could begin is with the radical first step of arresting members of the Saudi royal family. The Saudi economy is in big trouble, and President Trump could have made a deal giving them economic stability in exchange for the arrests.
In related news, the Podesta Group announced it will be closing by the end of the year.
