Failure of American Journalism: Pizzagate and the muzzling of Ben Swann

“Pizzagate” is the term given to speculations and assertions that there is a pedophile network connecting Democratic Party élites and two Washington, D.C. pizzerias, Besta Pizza and Comet Ping Pong. The latter is a Disneyish pizzeria owned by a homosexual named James Alefantis, who is a former boyfriend of David Brock, a powerful Democratic Party operative and Clinton loyalist.

The word “pizza” in Pizzagate isn’t just a reference to Comet Ping Pong pizzeria but stems from the many cryptic references to “pizza” and other food items (“hotdogs”; “pasta”; “tempting” “cheeses”; “yummy” “sauces”) in a collection of curious 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. This is the same John Podesta whose emails, published by WikiLeaks, reveal his and his brother Tony’s enthrallment with a cannibalism painting and their involvement with satanic performance-artist Marina Abramovic’s occult “spirit cooking” dinners.

Some say the references to “pizza” and “hotdog” are code words used by pedophiles; others dismiss the claim and would have us instead believe that powerful and very busy D. C. élites spend their time incessantly chatting about pizzas in emails. One of the parties in those Podesta emails is James Alefantis who, though the “lowly” owner of a D.C. pizza joint, is considered the 49th most powerful person in Washington, DC.

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 Nebraska’s Boys Town and assorted prominent citizens. The scandal is documented in two books:

Then there is the more recent case of former Congressman and House Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-Illinois) who, in April 2016 at his sentencing hearing, admitted under pressure from the judge that he had sexually abused boys. The judge in the case called Hastert a “serial child molester” and imposed a sentence of 15 months in prison, two years’ supervised release, and a $250,000 fine.

You would think that claims as incendiary as Pizzagate would warrant investigation by the D.C. police and the supposed “investigative” journalists of the MSM. Certainly, if the allegations were about Donald Trump or Republican élites, you can be sure WashingtonPost/NewYorkTimes/CNN/ABC/CBS/NBC would have reporters crawling over this story ad nauseum.

Even more curious is the fact that some big names in the Alternative Media treat Pizzagate like it’s a leprous contagion.

Wayne-madsen

Wayne Madsen, who touts himself as America’s premier “independent investigative journalist,” not only has not investigated and continues to refuse to look into Pizzagate, when asked by a reader why, responded with Alinskyite ridicule and insults, calling pizzagate “fake news” and those who blog and YouTube about it “crazy conspiracists” who do “a great disservice to those reporters” like the great Wayne Madsen “who have been investigating actual criminal conspiracies involving pedophiles.”

In his post of December 5, 2016, available only to his subscribers, Madsen airily dismisses Pizzagate:

“The so-called ‘Pizzagate’ story had problems from the outset of its genesis on a few dubious websites. The vacuous story falsely claimed that the pizzeria was engaged in a pedophile operation with John Podesta, Mrs. Clinton’s campaign manager and former White House chief of staff for Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.”

In the chat forum with his subscribers about his post, Madsen redoubles his mockery, calling Pizzagate a “phony” “100% bullcrap” “fake story” concocted by “fallacious conspiracy-mongering” “malicious” and “libelous” “fabulists”. To a faithful reader Will Shanley who doggedly asked Madsen why he’s avoiding Pizzagate, Madsen replied with more derision:

“This story is so fake the tabloids won’t even touch it. Concentrate on something more authentic, like Elvis’s three-headed alien baby.”

Even Alex Jones and his InfoWars shied away from Pizzagate. As Oscar Platt, who says the Pizzagate story has “definitely something to it,” recounts for Russia Insider, January 19, 2017:

Alex Jones publicly dropped his coverage of it. He has the resources and the audience to break the story wide open. Jones even created a special video explaining to his audience his logic for dropping his investigation, and then another one to explain why Infowars team member Joe Biggs, who was very active investigating Pizzagate, left the company.

Given the reluctance of both the MSM and AltMedia big shots like Jones and Madsen to investigate and report on Pizzagate, it was a breath of fresh air when a member of the MSM produced a TV report on the subject.

ben-swann

He is Ben Swann, an award-winning reporter and anchorman of CBS affiliate WGCL (CBS46) in Atlanta, Georgia, on which he had a regular investigative segment called “Reality Check”. Swann joined CBS46 as an anchor for its early evening and late newscasts in June 2015.

On January 18, 2017, CBS46 broadcasted Swann’s “Reality Check” report on Pizzagate, which Swann published to YouTube that same day:

As you can see, that video is no longer available, scrubbed from YouTube.

Fortunately, citizen journalists had saved Swann’s report, which you can see/hear for yourself in this video that, no doubt, will also be removed from YouTube:

The media drones immediately went on the attack:

  • Within hours, The Washington Post‘s Eric Wemple called Swann’s report “a gem of video slime”.
  • The Daily Beast‘s Ben Collins ran a denigrating profile of Benn Swann, calling him a “truther”.
  •  Gizmodo‘s Bryan Menegus published an article calling Swann a “CBS imbecile” who “just fanned the Pizzagate flames for no reason”.
  • Swann’s own station, CBS46, scrubbed his Pizzagate report. You won’t find it listed on the station’s page on Swann, which shows that Swann’s last “Reality Check” on “Why reports on Trump are fake news” was aired on January 12, 2o17, 6 days before the one on Pizzagate.

Even more troubling is the fact that, after his Pizzagate report was aired, Ben Swann disappeared and was not seen on CBS46 since.

Writing for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution‘s AJC.com on January 27, 2017, Rodney Ho archly observes:

Ben Swann, the evening anchor on CBS46 who created a social media firestorm last week after reviving the “Pizzagate” story, has been off the air since late last week.

UPDATE on Friday, January 27: He will be back Monday, January 30 after being off air since January 19. But his social media accounts will be deleted, he said. 

There has been no explanation for his absence on air. His co-anchor Sharon Reed has been solo anchoring at times. Sometimes, Tracye Hutchins joins in, as she did Wednesday night. Internally, staffers don’t even know what’s going on.

He does remain on the CBS46 website so he has not been fired.

Neither news director Frank Volpicella nor his boss and GM Mark Pimental have responded to requests for comment. A spokesman from Meredith Corp., which owns CBS46, has not returned email queries or phone call requests either.

It’s very possible the two sides are quietly negotiating an exit settlement agreement with Swann, who joined the station in mid-2015 and is clearly still under contract. And given that the story was cleared by his bosses, their futures are questionable as well.

Swann did one of his “Reality Checks” last Tuesday bringing back the frequently debunked story of a pizza place in D.C. linked to a Hillary Clinton senior aide that was supposedly running a child prostitution ring there. He noted that there is no clear evidence such a ring exists but threw out a lot of online speculation and innuendo, then wondered why the authorities had not done a thorough investigation….

He has not posted anything on Instagram since the brouhaha hit. Ditto on Facebook.

As the Daily Beast noted, he’s a bit of a conspiracy buff and his website Truth in Media is tied to a Republican PAC. Plus, he did some work for the Russian-government supported Russia Today before coming to Atlanta.

Ho calls Pizzagate a “frequently debunked story”.

Really?

As Ben Swann, with eminent common sense, pointed out in his “Reality Check” report, how can Pizzagate be dismissed as “fake news” or “debunked” when there hasn’t been an official investigation — not one — into the many troubling claims?

On January 27, 2017, Ben Swann posted an announcement on Facebook and Twitter that “things are OK,” but that he will “go dark” on social media beginning “Tzuday, Feb. 1”.

ben-swann-go-dark-announcement

Note that in his “go dark” announcement, Swann bizarrely spelled Tuesday as “Tzuday,” and identified Feb. 1 as Tuesday when February 1, 2017 falls on a Wednesday. Was this Swann’s way of sending out an S.O.S.?

On January 31, 2017, AJC.com’s Rodney Ho reported that “Swann returned on air Monday [January 30], as announced. I saw him at 5:30 p.m. Oddly, his mic was not working properly during an intro about ‘construction fatigue’.”

Below is a screenshot from Swann’s January 30 newscast.

ben-swann-returns-to-anchor-cbs46-newscast-1-30-2017

But as Swann had warned, his social media accounts have “gone dark,” which you can see for yourself. If you go on:

  • Swann’s Facebook page, you will get this message: “This content isn’t available right now”.
  • Swann’s Twitter account, you’ll get this message” “Sorry, that page doesn’t exist!”.
  • Swann’s TruthInMedia.com website, you’ll get a “401 Authorization Required” message, asking you to give your username and password, which you can’t provide because you don’t have one since TruthInMedia.com had never required your username and password before.

Sure looks like Ben Swann, the only MSM journalist who reported about Pizzagate, is being muzzled. So much for the U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment declaration of a free press . . . .

The beast in Disney’s new ‘Beauty & the Beast’ is Baphomet

Beauty and the Beast is a traditional fairy tale written by French novelist Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve and published in 1740.

The story is so well known, there’s hardly the need for me to relate it. But if you don’t know, here’s a synopsis:

A wealthy widowed merchant has several children, the youngest and his favorite is Beauty (or Belle, in French), who is lovely, loves books, and pure of heart.

One day, the merchant got lost in a forest during a storm. Seeking shelter, he entered a palace with a table laden with food and drinks, but empty of people. Knowing that Beauty loves roses, the merchant plucked a rose from the palace’s garden to bring home to his daughter. A hideous beast appears and tells the merchant he must die for stealing the rose after availing himself of the beast’s generous hospitality. The merchant begs for his life and tells Beast that he had only picked the rose as a gift for his youngest daughter. The Beast agrees to let the man go, but only if the merchant or one of his daughters returns.

Upon the merchant’s return home, Beauty valiantly goes to the palace, where Beast lavishes finery on her and her every need met by invisible servants. Every night, Beast asks Beauty to marry him, but Beauty declines.

After months, Beast allows homesick Beauty to visit her family, on the condition that she’ll return after a week. Beauty agrees, but reneges on her promise.

One day, Beauty sees in the magic mirror Beast had given her that Beast is very ill. She quickly returns to the palace, to find Beast dying. Beauty weeps over Beast, saying that she loves him. Beast is transformed into the handsome prince in Beauty’s dreams. The Prince tells her that a vindictive fairy  had transformed him into a hideous beast, and that the curse would be broken only when he, despite his beastly ugliness, finds true love. He and Beauty are married and they live happily ever after.

This morning, while surfing the web, I came across the trailer of Disney’s new live-action Beauty and the Beast, coming to movie theaters on March 17.

The trailer begins with an old man (Beauty’s father) running in the woods, being chased by something. The man trips and falls.

At the 0:27 mark, whoever or whatever was chasing him stands over the man, casting its shadow.

My skin crawled, and alarm bells started ringing in my head . . . .

The shadow of the Beast has HORNS.

new-beauty-the-beast

Here’s the trailer:

Since when is the Beast of “Beauty and the Beast” a goat-man with horns?

2017-disneys-beauty-and-the-beast

Here are previous versions of Beast, none of which is a goat-man with horns:

beauty-and-the-beast-by-warwick-goblebeauty-and-the-beast-by-walter-cranebeauty-and-the-beast-tv-series-with-ron-perlman
In 1991, the beast in Disney’s animation (cartoon) “Beauty and the Beast” movie began sprouting tiny horns that resemble more like tufts of hair. beauty-and-the-beast-1991-disney-animation

In the 19th century, Eliphas Levi drew the Baphomet as a Sabbatic Goat, a humanoid with a goat’s face, horns, and legs. Today, the Baphomet is widely used as a symbol of Satan, as in this statue (below) erected by the Satanic Temple last year somewhere in Detroit, Michigan. (See “Detroit goes to the devil“)

Satan statue in Detroit, Michigan. See "Detroit goes to the devil".

Below are Levi’s Baphomet and Disney’s 2017 Beast:

Baphomet is 2017 Disney's Beast

The message of Disney’s new Beauty and the Beast movie is this:

The Devil is just misunderstood! He just wants your love! The Devil loves you and wants to give you riches and finery. All you gotta do is tell him you love him, and he’ll turn into a handsome prince, and you’ll live happily ever after.

God help us.

Sunday Devotional: Giving thanks for the election

Isaiah 8:6-7, 10, 23; 9:1-3

Because this people has rejected
the waters of Shiloah that flow gently…
Therefore the Lord is bringing up against them
the waters of the River, great and mighty….
Form a plan, it shall be thwarted;
make a resolve, it shall not be carried out,
for “With us is God!”….

Anguish has taken wing, dispelled is darkness:
for there is no gloom where but now there was distress.
The people who walked in darkness
have seen a great light;
upon those who dwelt in the land of gloom
a light has shone.
You have brought them abundant joy
and great rejoicing,
as they rejoice before you as at the harvest,
as people make merry when dividing spoils.
For the yoke that burdened them,
the pole on their shoulder,
and the rod of their taskmaster
you have smashed….

When the tides turned in the evening and early morning hours of last November 8-9, it became clear that Donald John Trump had defeated Hillary Clinton, despite the many polls predicting she would win. Everyone was surprised — not just her supporters, but also the millions who had voted for Trump. Several TV talking heads who are not Trump supporters used the word “miracle”.

St. Paul wrote in his letter to the Ephesians 6:12:

“For our struggle is not with flesh and blood
but with the principalities, with the powers,
with the world rulers of this present darkness,
with the evil spirits in the heavens.”

The 2016 presidential election was not just a political contest “with flesh and blood”. It was and remains a struggle “with the powers, with the world rulers of this present darkness, with the evil spirits in the heavens.”

If you doubt that, just look at these pics of the protesters in Washington, D.C., on the day of Trump’s presidential inauguration (source PJ Media):

Did you know that Trump’s inauguration set the record for most prayers at inaugural ceremonies?

Trump started the day at St. John’s Church for a service at 8:30 a.m. The inauguration ceremony had six religious prayers, three invocations and three benedictions.

Trump was sworn in using both his own Bible, gifted to him by his mother, and the Bible used to swear in President Abraham Lincoln. (McClatchy DC)

Inauguration Of Donald Trump As 45th President Of The United States

Trump began the day after his inauguration also with prayers, by attending an interfaith National Prayer Service at Washington National Cathedral. Prayers asking for divine help for Trump were offered by Christian (Catholic, Baptist, Episcopal), Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Sikh, and Navajo clergy.  (Daily Mail)

It is reported that today, the 44th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, Trump will ban U.S. taxpayers’ funding of overseas pro-abortion groups by re-instituting the pro-life “Mexico City Policy”. (LifeSiteNews)

90,000 martyred make Christians the most persecuted group in 2016

According to a report by the Center for Study of Global Christianity which will be released this month, in 2016, some 90,000 Christians were killed for their faith, making Christians the most persecuted religious group in the world.

persecution

In an interview with Vatican Radio on Dec. 26, 2016, Professor Massimo Introvigne, director of the Centre for Studies on New Religions (CESNUR), while the 2016 figure of 90,000 martyrs was a decrease from the 105,000 Christians who were killed in 2015, still one Christian was killed every 6 minutes in 2016. Additionally, 500 to 600 million Christians cannot profess their Christian faith in complete freedom.

Of the 90,000 Christians who were killed in 2016:

  • 70% (or 63,000) were killed in tribal conflicts in Africa, often because Christians refused to take up arms.
  • The other 30% (or 27,000) were killed in terrorist attacks, destruction of Christian villages, or from governmental persecution, as in the case of North Korea.
  • Christians killed by ISIS in the territories of the Islamic State had consciously chosen to remain in these areas to bear witness to their faith. The Catholic Church is studying several of these martyrs in preparation for their possible beatification.

It is believed that the number of Christians who were martyred in 2016 likely exceeds 90,000 because the study was unable to include data from China and India — two east Asian countries with large Christian populations — because of the ‘underground’ nature of churches in those countries.

AIDS-infested Charlie Sheen asks God to kill Donald Trump

If a person is defined by his enemies, then Donald Trump surely is on the side of good.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, as he showed himself to be winning — and therefore a real threat to established interests — Trump became the target of death threats. See:

Instead of ceasing, the threats became even louder and more vicious after Trump was elected President by a substantial Electoral College margin of 306 to Hillary Clinton’s 232. (The final Electoral College vote was 304 Trump to 224 Clinton). See:

charlie-sheen

The latest death threat comes from that paragon of virtue and right reason called Charlie Sheen — the actor whose off-the-scale promiscuity with females and males resulted in him being infected with HIV/AIDS. See:

Reacting to news of actress Carrie Fisher’s death, Sheen asks God — in whom the actor doesn’t believe anyway — to kill Donald Trump.

He tweeted: “Dear God; Trump next, please! Trump next, please! Trump next, please! Trump next, please! Trump next, please! Trump next, please!,” followed by an emoticon of the middle finger F-you.

charlie-sheen-tweet-asking-god-to-kill-donald-trump

It is a crime to make death threats against President-elect Donald Trump, as it was to make death threats against presidential candidate Donald Trump.

According to 18 U.S.C. § 879 : US Code – Section 879: Threats against former Presidents and certain other persons:

“(a) Whoever knowingly and willfully threatens to kill, kidnap, or inflict bodily harm upon – (1) a former President or a member of the immediate family of a former President; (2) a member of the immediate family of the President, the President-elect, the Vice President, or the Vice President-elect; (3) a major candidate for the office of President or Vice President, or a member of the immediate family of such candidate; or (4) a person protected by the Secret Service under section 3056(a)(6); shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both.

So why aren’t the Trump death-threaters arrested?

The answer, of course, is the Obama administration.

But you can be sure death-threaters will be arrested and prosecuted to the full extent of law after January 20, 2017.

Actress Carrie Fisher dead at 60

Carrie Fisher, who, at age 19, shot to international stardom playing Princess Leia in the Star Wars trilogy, was declared dead this morning.

carrie-fisher

On Friday, Dec. 23, Fisher had a massive heart attack on board a London-to-L.A. commercial flight and was rushed to L. A. Medical Center. Reportedly, her heart had stopped for some 10 minutes before an EMT, who was on board in coach, managed to restore a pulse. We were told she was put on a ventilator and, after a stint in ER, was in Intensive Care in “stable condition”. She never regained consciousness.

In truth, she likely had died on December 23, and was artificially kept alive by a ventilator until she was formally declared dead this morning.

Fisher was only 18 months old when her adulterous father, singer Eddie Fisher, left her and her mom, Debbie Fisher, for Elizabeth Taylor.

Quite apart from Star Wars, Carrie Fisher was an accomplished and very witty author of biographical and fictional books, in which she was honest about her drug addiction (cocaine, alcohol, and prescription meds), bipolar disorder, and her weight gain and loss in a Hollywood fixated on looks.

I am an unabashed fan of Star Wars — and all stories, like Lord of the Rings, of brave people fighting the good fight against evil, which inspire us to be better people than we are and from which we draw encouragement when we lose hope. As J.R.R. Tolkien put it, speaking through Samwise Gamgee in Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers:

“By rights we shouldn’t even be here. But we are. It’s like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo, the ones that really matter, full of darkness and danger they were. And sometimes you didn’t want to know the end, because how could the end be happy. How could the world go back to the way it was, when so much bad happened. But in the end, it’s only a passing thing–the shadow–even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines, it’ll shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you, that meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances to turn back, only they didn’t.  They kept going, because they were holding onto something–that there’s some good in the world, Mr. Frodo, and that’s worth fighting for.”

Carrie Fisher’s gutsy Princess Leia did that — for generations of young girls. She once told the Los Angeles Times:

“I remember the first time it was weird to me was when someone wanted to thank me because they’d become a lawyer because of me. The main thing they said is that they identified with me. I felt like that [Princess Leia] was somebody that could be heroic without being a superhero and be relatable.”

Rest in peace, Carrie Fisher. To borrow a fan (and LA Times reader) mark00000352’s words:

“You are now in the stars where we first met you.”

UPDATE (Dec. 28, 2016):

Carrie Fisher reportedly had a drug relapse before death. (Page Six)
