Why did U.S. State Department purchase frozen penguin pineal glands from Argentina?

It’s Sunday night. Not much is happening beyond the usual, never-ending political bickering.

Are you in the mood for a mystery?

Among the treasure trove of documents obtained by WikiLeaks is a very curious telegram on August 1, 1973, sent from Buenos Aires, Argentina to the U.S. State Department, concerning the shipment of frozen penguin pineal glands. The telegram says the shipment would arrive in Boston on August 4, 1973.

Below is a screenshot of the telegram:

In August 1973, William P. Rogers was Secretary of State in the Richard Nixon administration.

Penguins are native to the Southern Hemisphere. A common misconception is that penguins are only found in Antarctica. In fact, major populations of penguins are found in Angola, Antarctica, Argentina, Australia, Chile, Namibia, New Zealand, and South Africa. Several penguin species are found in the temperate zone: one species, the Galapagos penguin, lives near the equator!

Two interesting and really cool things about penguins:

  1. Their flippers have at least three branches of the axillary artery. They limit heat loss from flippers by enabling cold blood to be heated by blood that has already been warmed. This system allows penguins to efficiently use their body heat and explains why such small animals can survive in the extreme cold of Antarctica.
  2. Penguins can drink salt water because their supraorbital gland filters excess salt from the bloodstream. The salt is then excreted in a concentrated fluid from the nasal passages.

But why was the U.S. State Department so interested in penguin pineal glands? Searching around the net, this is what I found:

  • The pineal gland is a small endocrine gland in the brains of nearly all vertebrates. The shape of the gland resembles a pine cone, hence the name “pineal gland”. Located in the epithalamus, near the center of the brain between the two hemispheres, the gland is tucked in a groove where the two halves of the thalamus join.
  • From the point of view of evolution, the pineal gland is a kind of atrophied photoreceptor. In the epithalamus of some species of amphibians and reptiles, the gland is linked to a light-sensing organ — the parietal eye, aka pineal or third eye.
  • French philosopher René Descartes believed the pineal gland to be the “principal seat of the soul“.
  • Function: The primary function of the pineal gland is to produce the hormone melatonin, which helps modulate sleep patterns. Since melatonin production is stimulated by darkness and inhibited by light, the long Antarctica winter would mean the pineal glands of Antarctica penguins produce a lot of melatonin. Studies on rodents suggest that melatonin can protect against neurodegeneration.
  • According to a 1975 article in the International Journal of Biometeorology, polar mammals, such as walruses and some seals, possess unusually large pineal glands. The article does not say if polar penguins also have unusually large pineal glands.
  • Pineal glands become calcified — the accumulation of calcium salts. Calcification has been observed in children as young as two years of age, and increases with age. Some studies show that the degree of pineal gland calcification is significantly higher in patients with Alzheimer’s disease vs. other types of dementia.
  • Pineal glands of mammals like rodents contain Dimethyltryptamine (DMT) — a tryptamine molecule that some call “the spirit molecule”. DMT can be consumed as a powerful psychedelic drug and has historically been used by various cultures for ritual and healing purposes. Illegal in most countries, DMT can be inhaled, injected, or orally ingested. A 2014 study found that DMT has immunomodulatory potential that may have significant anti-inflammatory and tissue regeneration effects.

The man behind the $20M impeach Trump campaign and his strange ‘walnut sauce’ email

Just days before the 2016 presidential election, WikiLeaks published a collection of emails sent by and to John Podesta, a longtime Democratic Party operative who was White House chief of staff in Bill Clinton’s administration, White House counselor in the Obama administration and, most recently, chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.

Thanks to a tip on Voat, a hitherto obscure Podesta email takes on new significance because among its recipients is the man who is funding a $20 million national impeachment campaign against President Trump.

Below is a screenshot of the email, published by WikiLeaks (click to enlarge):

Note:

(1) Tom Steyer, 60, the cc recipient of the above email, is the billionaire Democrat who has launched a $20 million national campaign to impeach President Trump. In a televised video that you may have seen, Steyer calls President Trump “a clear and present danger who is mentally unstable and armed with nuclear weapons,” who has taken the U.S. “to the brink of nuclear war” and obstructed justice by firing former FBI Director James Comey, among other charges. (See “Billionaire Democrat Tom Steyer launches multi-million$ media campaign to impeach President Trump“)

Steyer’s impeachment campaign is doomed to failure because:

  • The Republican Party has a majority in both houses of Congress.
  • Even Democratic congressional leaders have shown no interest in impeaching Trump.
  • President Trump has neither committed nor been convicted of “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors” — the grounds for impeachment as specified in Section 4 of Article Two of the United States Constitution.

Tom Steyer is also connected to Fusion GPS, the DC-based opposition research firm hired by Hillary Clinton and the DHS during the 2016 presidential campaign to find “dirt” on Donald Trump.

Steyer is said to be considering running for political office. In August 2015, he launched the Fair Shake Commission on Income Inequality and Middle Class Opportunity, purportedly an implicit announcement of candidacy for the 2018 California gubernatorial race. (Lots more on Steyer, the “green” or environmental hypocrite, here.)

(2) Jim Steyer, 61, the sender of the cryptic “walnut sauce” email, is the older brother of Tom Steyer. A child advocate, civil rights attorney, Stanford University professor and author, Jim Steyer is most known for founding Common Sense Media, an organization dedicated to improving media and entertainment lives for kids and families. (Wikipedia)

(3) John Podesta thought the cryptic “walnut sauce” email to be important enough as to forward it to his assistant, Eryn Sepp.

5th survivor of Las Vegas shooting massacre killed in hit & run

Survivors of the October 1 Las Vegas mass shooting — the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history wherein lone gun man Stephen Paddock allegedly killed 58 and injured more than 500 people at the Harvest 91 country music festival — are being killed, one by one.

The latest is Roy McClellan, the fifth survivor to die — not from injuries sustained at the shooting.

KSN.com reports that on November 17, 2017, 52-year-old Roy McClellan was killed in a hit-and-run while hitchhiking on State Route 160 in Pahrump, about 50 miles west of Las Vegas.

The driver of the Chevrolet Camaro fled the scene, leaving McClellan for dead.

According to Fox News on November 26, 2017, “investigators had located the car believed to be involved in the accident and charges were pending.”

McClellan is the fifth survivor to die in incidents unrelated to the Las Vegas shooting. The other four are Kymberley Suchomel, Dennis Carver, Lorraine Carver, and Danny Contreras. What’s the statistical probability of that?

Kymberley Suchomel

On October 9, 2017, about a week after surviving the Las Vegas shooting in which she had not been injured, Kymberley Suchomel, 28, died suddenly in her sleep in her Apple Valley, CA home.

Suchomel was found by her grandmother, Julie Norton, just after 8:30 a.m., who believes Suchomel may have died in her sleep after her husband, Mike, had left for work at 4:30 a.m.

Norton said “Kymberley had epilepsy and she’s always been prone to seizures — she told her friend that she recently had three focal seizures. I believe the stress from the shooting took her life.” (Seacoastonline)

On October 5, 2017, Suchomel wrote on her Facebook page an account of what happened on the night of the shooting, which refers to multiple shooters and firecrackers preceding the gunshots. Although her Facebook page has since been set to private, her account is archived here. She wrote:

“From about 50 feet in front of us, and a little to the right, fire crackers were set off. Let me repeat that… FIRE CRACKERS WERE SET OFF. […] I would say about 15 seconds later, the first volley of gunfire was released. […] But then the 3rd volley hit… and it was close. Very, very close to us. I could physically see the impact of the bullets on the astro-turf, I could feel the warmth & the passing of bullets. […]  The gentlemen that mocked me stating it was just fireworks fell to the ground, and he never got back up. The lady behind me (who was now in front of me) who was terrified as I told her to run, never got back up. I actually had to physically step over her body to run (something I am still struggling with, so please don’t attack me. I was absolutely in flight-or-fight mode). There was another person to my right who also wasn’t moving. We ran. […]

I thought to myself “we NEED to hide”, but as I looked quickly for somewhere to go, the gunfire once again got closer and closer. We couldn’t hide because they (and I do mean THEY) were chasing us. That exact moment is when I started to really panic. That is the exact moment in which I thought this was it, I was going to die, I was never going to see my family again. […] Bullets were coming from every direction. Behind us, in front of us, to the side of us. But I know, I just know, that there was someone chasing us. The entire time I felt this way. The farther we got from the venue, the closer the gunfire got. I kept looking back expecting to see the gunmen- and I say MEN because there was more than one person. There was more than one gun firing. 100% more than one. […]”

Dennis and Lorraine Carver

On October 16, husband and wife Dennis, 52, and Lorraine Carver, 53, who had survived the Las Vegas shooting two weeks ago, were killed when their Mercedes smashed into a metal gate and brick pillars less than a mile from their home in Riverside, California. California Highway Patrol said their car was engulfed by fire and it took firefighters nearly an hour to contain the blaze. (Las Vegas Review-Journal)

Danny Contreras

On the morning of October 23, 2017, Las Vegas police found Danny Contreras, 35, fatally shot in a vacant home. Police said Contreras had been shot several times in the upper torso, and that the killing was likely related to narcotics. (Las Vegas Review Journal)

According to Zero Hedge, Contreras was a survivor of the Las Vegas shooting and that, like Kymberley Suchomel, he had also publicly claimed there were multiple gunmen the night of the attack.

In a tweet on October 5, four days after the mass shooting, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange implied that the shooting had been staged by the FBI and gave a link to a Business Insider article claiming that “The FBI is ‘manufacturing terrorism cases’ on a greater scale than ever before.”

Trump Fights Back on 3 Fronts: against Antifa, Democrats & Russian conspiracy theory

According to Joey Millar of Jews News, Aug. 17, 2017, Tony Schwartz, the ghost-writer of Donald Trump’s best-selling memoir The Art of the Deal, said President Trump could resign in a matter of weeks in exchange for immunity in the investigation into Russia’s alleged interfering with last November’s presidential election.

Schwartz, who has been a fierce critic of Trump throughout the first seven months of his presidency, said the situation is reaching boiling:

“The circle is closing at blinding speed. Trump is going to resign and declare victory before Mueller and Congress leave him no choice. Trump’s presidency is effectively over. Would be amazed if he survives till the end of the year. More likely resigns by fall, if not sooner. He has gone over the line of acceptability so far there is no return. The Russia stuff will be huge. He doesn’t want to go to jail.”

Really, Schwartz?

Instead of resigning, President Trump is fighting back.

Two days ago, Sean Hannity sent out a series of intriguing tweets:

“3 different fronts”? Um . . . .

Here are three possibilities.

Front #1: Trump DOJ declares war on Antifa

DisruptJ20, a coalition of Antifa groups, was among the communist organizations that planned activities, including terrorist activities, to disrupt the presidential inauguration of Donald Trump on January 20, 2017. (See “Video evidence of the Left’s terrorist plans for Trump inauguration”)

DreamHost, headquartered in Los Angeles, CA, is the firm that hosts DisruptJ20’s website, disruptj20.org.

The Trump administration’s Department of Justice (DOJ) has formally requested that DreamHost turn over 1.3 million IP addresses and other information to “unmask” disruptj20’s subscribers, as part of the investigation into crimes committed on and around January 20 by rioters. 

On July 12, 2017, the DOJ served DreamHost a warrant, ordering the web-host “to assist” law enforcement’s search of its electronic files because the DOJ “has probable cause to believe that in the premises controlled by DreamHost Inc., there is now being concealed property, namely stored electronic communications including but not limited to digital files, records, messages and photographs” that are “in violation of D.C. Code § 22-1322 [on rioting or inciting to riot] involving the individuals who participated, planed, organized, or incited the January 20 riot”.

The warrant specifies that the property to be searched is any “information associated with http://www.disruptj20.org that is stored at premises owned, maintained, controlled, or operated by DreamHost”, including:

“all information in the possession of DreamHost that might identify the subscribers related to those accounts or identifiers, including names, addresses, telephone numbers…, e-mail addresses, business information, the length of service (including start date), means and source of payment for services (including any credit card or bank account numbers), and information about any domain name registration….”

DreamHost is challenging the DOJ warrant, on the grounds that the scope of data requested violates the first and fourth amendments because it is too broad. Interestingly, Goldman Sachs is a major investor in DreamHost. (ZeroHedge)

Front #2: GOP Meets with Wikileaks Julian Assange

On Wednesday, August 16, 2017, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange met with a U.S. government official for the first time.

GOP Congressman Dana Rohrabacher met with Julian Assange in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London where Assange has been living in political asylum for the past 5 years. The meeting was reportedly set up by conservative journalist Charles C. Johnson, who claimed that Rohrabacher “would be the envoy in charge of bringing back a deal to the Trump White House.”

Rohrabacher said that in the meeting, Assange “reaffirmed his aggressive denial that the Russians had anything to do with the hacking of the DNC during the election. He has given us a lot of information. He said there’s more to come. We don’t have the entire picture yet.”

Rohrabacher said the information he received from Assange would have “an earth-shattering political impact” and that “It wouldn’t be so important if Democrats hadn’t focused so inordinately on the Russians. Democrats are creating a total upheaval over this. I have some information to give the president before I give information to anyone else.” (Breitbart)

That suggests to me that the “earth-shattering” information Assange gave Rohrabacher has to do with iron-clad evidence that, contrary to what the Democrats and their MSM mouthpieces keep insisting, Russia did not hack into the DNC emails nor interfered in the 2016 presidential election.

Rohrabacher is recommending that Assange be pardoned. He told The Daily Caller in an exclusive interview yesterday that Assange is hoping to leave the Ecuadorian embassy and that during the meeting they explored “what might be necessary to get him out.” Rohrabacher said: “if [Assange] is going to give us a big favor, he would obviously have to be pardoned to leave the Ecuadorian embassy.”

Front #3: Imran Awan Indicted

Yesterday, August 17, 2017, Imran Awan, 37, a former IT aide of former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, was indicted by a grand jury on four counts including bank fraud and making false statements.

The indictment also includes Awan’s wife Hina Alvi.

Fox News reports that the grand jury decision in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia comes roughly a month after Awan was arrested at Dulles airport in Virginia trying to flee the U.S. by boarding a plane to his native Pakistan.

Awan and other IT aides for House Democrats have been on investigators’ radar for months over concerns of possible double-billing, alleged equipment theft, and access to sensitive computer systems. Most lawmakers fired Awan in February, but Schultz had kept him on even after Awan had been barred from the House IT network.

The indictment addresses separate allegations that Awan and his wife engaged in a conspiracy to obtain home equity lines of credit from the Congressional Federal Credit Union by giving false information about two properties – and then sending the proceeds to individuals in Pakistan.

Awan and other family members for years had a lucrative arrangement for IT-related work on Capitol Hill for House Democrats, from which the Awan family had made at least $4 million since 2009, according to The Daily Caller.

In a recent interview published in the Sun Sentinel, Wasserman Schultz blamed the “right-wing media circus fringe” for the attention on Awan, and that it’s all part of an effort to distract from the investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign and possible ties to President Trump’s team.

Her colleagues in Congress, though, say there are serious security implications in her former staffer’s case. “We have to investigate how our systems may have been compromised,” Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., recently told “Fox & Friends.”

In his IT work in Congress, Awan had access to all kinds of sensitive information. Expect him to sing like canary so as to cut a deal with prosecutors for a lesser sentence.

CyberBerkut publishes email of Democrat plot to blame Russia for hacking 2016 election

CyberBerkut, founded around 2014, is a Ukrainian nationalist and pro-Russian group of anonymous hacktivists who, as described by Wikipedia, became known for a series of denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks on the pro-West (NATO and the U.S.) Ukrainian government, and on western and Ukrainian corporate websites.

Its name, CyberBerkut or Berkut online, is a reference to Berkut — a special police within Ukraine’s Ministry of Internal Affairs. After the 2014 Ukrainian revolution — in which the Obama State Department was covertly involved — the new pro-West Ukrainian government dissolved Berkut, blaming the special police for most of the nearly 100 civilian deaths. Berkut’s unit in Crimea, which broke away from Ukraine, defected to the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs and kept its old name.

Indeed, CyberBerkut’s emblem is almost identical to that of Berkut:

CyberBerkut’s activities include:

  • Attacks on NATO websites.
  • Attacks on U.S. private military companies.
  • Publication of correspondence with the United States Embassy in Ukraine and United States foundations (e.g., Clinton Foundation).

In response to CyberBerkut’s hacktivism, the group’s Facebook page is repeatedly blocked, and its website repeatedly disrupted. Indeed, when I tried to assess CyberBerkut’s website this morning, I got the message:

“The site is under attack. Service is temporarily unavailable.”

Yesterday, WikiLeaks sent out a tweet informing us that CyberBerkut just published a batch of emails between Ukraine and Hillary Clinton/Clinton Foundation, with a link to the CyberBerkut webpage.

When you go on the CyberBerkut page, the most intriguing thing comes at the end — an email on January 8, 2017, i.e., after Hillary Clinton had lost the presidential election to Donald Trump, showing the Democrats plotting to manufacture the phony story that Russia had hacked the election.

CyberBerkut claims they were given the email by a “whistleblower” and that the names of the email sender and receiver are blacked out to protect the identity of the whistleblower.

Below is the text of the email, followed by a screenshot of the email:

1/8/2017 10:03 PM

From _____
Subject Re. Elections 2016
To _____

Dear ______

We all agree there is a need to provide technical details on Russian hacking.
____ urges you and _____ to bring up again the issue with _____. It’s quite important, especially as we approach the hearings. If there are no technical details we have to find some by all means. I am sure his guys can do it. We are short of time.

Regards,
_______

Sent from my iPhone

CyberBerkut notes that:

“Our whistleblowers gave us information that Russia was going to face great provocation. The Americans intend to manufacture false evidence of the Russian security services’ involvement in cyber attacks during the U.S. presidential elections 2016.

We cover the names of the provocation facilitators in order not to expose our sources. It is worth saying, a famous American politician and major financier took part in the plot.”

Is the “famous American politician” Hillary Clinton, and the “major financier” George Soros?

Fake news CNN unlawfully threatens maker of Trump wrestling GIF; Alt-Media vows revenge

On Sunday morning, July 2, 2017, President Trump tweeted a photoshopped GIF of him downing a wrestler whose face bore the CNN logo.

That’s CNN — the peddler of fake news, whose producer recently admitted on Project Veritas’ hidden camera that the network’s Trump-Russia story is ‘bullshit’ fake news, and contemptuously describes American voters as “Stupid as shit”.

Thin-skinned CNN went on the war path to track down the source of the Trump wrestler GIF to a Reddit poster, rumored to be a 15-year-old teen, who calls himself HanAssholeSolo (HAS). The network’s investigative KFile team then uncovered HAS’s real identity by using identifying information of key biographical details HAS had posted on Reddit and a Facebook search.

On July 4, two days after Trump’s tweet, CNN published an article written by Andrew Kaczynski, the head of CNN’s KFile team — “How CNN found the Reddit user behind the Trump wrestling GIF“.  In the article, Kaczynski describes how his KFile team uncovered HAS’s real identity and contacted HAS, after which HAS publicly apologized for the GIF and confirmed his identity.

Kaczynski writes:

“In the interview [with CNN], ‘HanA**holeSolo’ sounded nervous about his identity being revealed and asked to not be named out of fear for his personal safety and for the public embarrassment it would bring to him and his family.”

Despite the fact that HAS apologized to CNN for the GIF — which HAS is under no obligation to do, as he was simply exercising his Constitutional First Amendment right of free speech when he made the GIF — CNN (via Kacsynski) still threatens to dox (publicly reveal the identity) HAS if he does not behave properly in the future:

“CNN is not publishing ‘HanA**holeSolo’s’ name because he is a private citizen who has issued an extensive statement of apology, showed his remorse by saying he has taken down all his offending posts, and because he said he is not going to repeat this ugly behavior on social media again. In addition, he said his statement could serve as an example to others not to do the same.

CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change.

Kacsynski also claims that HansAssholeSolo is not 15 but a middle-aged man — which may or may not be true, as there is no way for us to verify the claim, unless HAS actually comes forth and reveals his age and identity.

Kacsynski’s threat was followed by an official statement from CNN:

As WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange points out, CNN and Kacsynski’s standing threat to dox HansAssholeSolo if he ever so much as make fun of CNN again is illegal. According to New York Penal Law §135.60, CNN’s threat is coercion in the second degree and a class A misdemeanor. PEN §135.60 states:

A person is guilty of coercion in the second degree when he or she compels or induces a person to engage in conduct which the latter has a legal right to abstain from engaging in, or to abstain from engaging in conduct in which he or she has a legal right to engage, or compels or induces a person to join a group, organization or criminal enterprise which such latter person has a right to abstain from joining, by means of instilling in him or her a fear that, if the demand is not complied with, the actor or another will:

1. Cause physical injury to a person;  or

2. Cause damage to property;  or

3. Engage in other conduct constituting a crime;  or

4. Accuse some person of a crime or cause criminal charges to be instituted against him or her;  or

5. Expose a secret or publicize an asserted fact, whether true or false, tending to subject some person to hatred, contempt or ridicule;  or

6. Cause a strike, boycott or other collective labor group action injurious to some person’s business;  except that such a threat shall not be deemed coercive when the act or omission compelled is for the benefit of the group in whose interest the actor purports to act;  or

7. Testify or provide information or withhold testimony or information with respect to another’s legal claim or defense;  or

8. Use or abuse his or her position as a public servant by performing some act within or related to his or her official duties, or by failing or refusing to perform an official duty, in such manner as to affect some person adversely;  or

9. Perform any other act which would not in itself materially benefit the actor but which is calculated to harm another person materially with respect to his or her health, safety, business, calling, career, financial condition, reputation or personal relationships.

The backlash against CNN-Kacsynski’s threat is swift and furious:

(1) On July 4, 2017, the chat forum 4chan‘s very resourceful /pol/ politically incorrect section declared war on CNN, vowing to utterly destroy the network. Here’s their “Declaration of War on CNN“:

“Sirs and madams,

Herein contained in this post is /pol/’s formal declaration of war against CNN. Your news agency has for years produced propaganda designed to brainwash the public at large into your sick worldview, and has non-stop endlessly harassed the good men and women of our website and in the right-wing at large. Your latest threat to dox an individual for creating a harmless meme is just another example of your malignant nature and the urgent need to shut your organization down for good.

That is why the ascendant nation of /pol/ has unanimously agreed that all of our resources will be put to the goal of ending your reign of terror. Do not take this lightly. We have the best cyber hackers in the world. We have access to memes that will forever damage the psyche of your company and its employees. We could bring you to heel with zero casualties if we so wanted. As such, we are offering you a chance to surrender now by our terms.

-Total surrender/ dismantlement of CNN and its sister companies and investigative organs
-Criminal prosecution by an impartial tribunal to accordingly sentence everyone involved in CNN and its crimes
-Immediate retraction of all hit pieces and false stories against the President of the United States along with an apology
-Cede all of CNN’s current economic and fiduciary assets to a private fund organized by representatives of /pol/ to be used for the development of new, alternative media organizations which will replace CNN
-Well-written apology to the person CNN threatened to dox

You have one week from the time of this posting. Our people will make certain that you see this message. Remember, we are anonymous. We do not forgive and we do not forget.

We’re waiting.”

And as promised, 4chan and other netcitizens delivered and will continue to exact retribution against CNN.

(2) On July 4, a 4chan poster discovered that Andrew Kaczynski follows the Church of Satan on Twitter. Is Kaczynski, like John Podesta, also a spirit-cooker?

(3) On July 5, netcitizens gave Andrew Kaczynski a taste of his own “dox” medicine by posting Kaczynski’s personal info. to pastebin and here.

(4) Someone did the research and discovered CNN is an All Jew Network, which defies the law of probability (click image below to enlarge):

(5) Reporting for the liberal Daily Caller on July 5, 2017, Betsy Rothstein claims that CNN staff have had their home addresses published and received anti-Semitic threats and accusations:

“Several anchors and reporters at CNN have had their home addresses published and have received threats of rape and other violence in the wake of a story published by Andrew Kaczynski . . . . Anti-network trolls are encouraging viewers to wrongly accuse CNN staffers of pedophilia and child pornography. There is also ‘tons of anti-Semitism.’”

Indeed, a 4chan netcitizen posted this list of home addresses of six CNN hosts and correspondents.

(6) Meme-makers got busy and created even more Trump vs. CNN pictures and GIFs. If the network had a hissy fit over the Trump wrestling GIF, this compilation is sure to give CNN honchos a stroke:

In this war, my bets are on 4chan.

Bring out the popcorn!

UPDATE:

CNN’s ratings are plummeting. From Daily Caller, July 6, 2017:

CNN has fallen to #13 in cable TV rankings, according to weekly numbers posted on Thursday by TV Newser.

The ratings slide comes as the network has come under heavy scrutiny for a variety of journalistic missteps, including the retraction of an article alleging that a Trump associate had illicit Russian business ties.

Fox News and MSNBC are listed as first and second, respectively, in the cable rankings, which measured average audience sizes for the period between June 26 and July 2. Fox News drew an audience of around 1.82 million while MSNBC drew an audience of 1.34 million. CNN had only 711,000 viewers on an average day during the measurement period.

To give some perspective to CNN’s average daily rating of 711,000 viewers:

Fellowship of the Minds, this humble little-known blog with a handful of unpaid volunteer writers, had its best day on August 21, 2014, when we got a phenomenal 355,340 unique views. That’s half of the 711,000 average daily rating of international cable TV and corporate giant CNN, whose anchors are paid $millions.

Pizzagate: The Podesta ‘pizza’ emails

Did you know that four days ago on Tuesday, June 27, 2017, John Podesta testified before Congress in a closed-door hearing?

Here’s a tweet from Alt-Media journalist Jack Posobiec of Rebel Media:

John Podesta is a longtime Democratic Party operative who was White House chief of staff in Bill Clinton’s administration, White House counselor in the Obama administration and, most recently, chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.

He is also the namesake of a collection of very curious emails published by WikiLeaks just days before the 2016 presidential election. The emails contain cryptic references to “pizza” and other food items (“hotdogs”; “pasta”; “tempting” “cheeses”; “yummy” “sauces”), believed by many in the Alternative Media to be code words that pedophiles use to communicate with each other about their criminal activities. One of the parties in those emails is James Alefantis, a former boyfriend of powerful Democratic Party operative and Clinton loyalist David Brock. Though only a pizzeria owner (of Comet Ping Pong  near Capitol Hill), Alefantis was named by GQ magazine as the 49th most powerful person in Washington, DC.

It is the Podesta “pizza” emails that gave rise to the term “Pizzagate”.

Certainly, the late Andrew Breitbart had thought Podesta to be a pedophile. A year before his sudden death from a heart attack, though he was only 43 years old, Breitbart in a tweet called Podesta a “cover-upperer” for a “world class” child sex slave operation.

That there are pedophiles in Washington, D.C. is not farfetched given the Franklin child sex ring scandal of 1988-1991 which involved GOP élites in Washington, D.C., and prominent citizens and Boys Town of Nebraska. The scandal was documented in two books:

MSM and even Alt-Media journalists like Wayne Madsen and Alex Jones dismiss Pizzagate as a “conspiracy theory” by tinfoil hat-wearing loonies (see “Failure of American Journalism: Pizzagate and the muzzling of Ben Swann” and “Alex Jones apologizes for Pizzagate ‘fake news’ on eve of March on D.C.”). They would have us instead believe that powerful and very busy D. C. élites like Podesta and 49th-most-powerful Alefantis spend their time incessantly chatting about pizzas in emails.

I have NEVER talked about pizza (or any food) in my emails. Have you?

It is to those Podesta pizza emails that we now turn.

Podesta “Pizza” Emails

Out of WikiLeaks‘ 2,060 Podesta emails, there are 149 references to “pizza”, 73 references to “hot dog”, 85 “cheese”, 78 “pasta”, 41 “sauce”, 84 “ice cream” and 47 “walnut” — all in very bizarre contexts that have nothing to do with food.

Below is a sample of the Podesta “pizza” emails. See if you can make any sense of them without resorting to code-words.

Here are the senders and recipients of the above “pizza” emails in alphabetical order, and, where relevant, what they wrote in the “pizza” emails:

I am awaiting the return of my children and grandchildren from their holiday travels so that we can demolish them. Thank you so much. I hope you and your gang are well. I miss you both.

Law enforcement authorities and online Urban Dictionary-like resources have identified the words in the Podesta emails, such as “pizza”, “hotdogs”, “cheese”, “sauce”, “pasta”, “handkerchief” and “map”, as code words for child sex trafficking. Writing in code provides pedophiles a cover story in the event their communications, such as the Podesta emails, are discovered.

Below are the code words, according to The Daily Sheeple and others on Alt-Media, and examples from the Podesta emails. The words between brackets are the translations of the pedophile code words:

  • “cheese” = little girl
    • Herbert Sandler to John Podesta: “Lo and behold, instead of pasta [little boys] and wonderful sauces [orgies], it was a lovely, tempting assortment of cheeses [little girls]
  • “hotdog” = boy
    • Todd Stern to John Podesta: “I’m dreaming about your hotdog [boy] stand in Hawaii…”
  • “ice cream” = male prostitute
  • “map” = semen
    • Susan Sandler to John Podesta: “The realtor found a handkerchief (I think it has a map [semen] that seems pizza [girl]-related). Is it yours?”
  • “pasta” = little boy
    • Herbert Sandler: “Do you think I’ll do better playing dominos on cheese [little girls] than on pasta [little boys]?”
  • “pizza” = girl
    • Tony to John Podesta: “Or I could bring a pizza [girl] home” “Would love to get a pizza [girl] for an hour?”
    • John to Tony Podesta: “I’m going to pass. I have too much to do before heading to Michigan tomorrow. No need for pizza [girl].”
    • James Alefantis to John Podesta: “My only regret is I did not make you a nice pizza [girl]. When can I?”
  • “sauce” = orgy
  • “walnut” or nuts = person of color

Urban Dictionary confirms the meanings of some of the terms:

  • cheese pizza: child pornography
  • pizza: code word for pussy
  • pizza: a girl’s vagina or pussy
  • pizza: code name for rough sex, bondage
  • pizza: code name for sex
  • hotdog: hotdogging is when “one man puts his penis in between the buttcheeks of the other and wiggles it around, not penetrating, thus creating a hot dog”.
  • hotdog: a semi-hard penis
  • hotdog: butt sex
  • map: Australian slang for the female pubic region

Once you plug in the codes, the cryptic Podesta emails that otherwise make no sense, become comprehensible.

As Kim Holleman, an MIT Media Lab  visiting scholar and research affiliate (2013–2017), wrote in an article for Medium, June 5, 2017:

“What is interesting to me, is that we are all adults here. We all know code language when we use it. We all know code language when we see it. If I want to convey something covert to a colleague or friend, I use code…. This is the nature of code. It hides something. Once the code is ‘revealed’, you can never again occupy the same awareness you did before the information was ‘uncoded’….

All someone has to do is ask him [John Podesta] directly about the email codes, or the instagram photos, or the obsession with dark art, art about child abuse and art about cannibalism, art about beheading and autopsies-or ask him why he speaks fondly of his friend, Dennis Hastert, a convicted child rapist.”

Was Podesta asked about the “pizza” emails in his closed-door hearing before Congress on Tuesday?

I doubt it.
