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 . . . .

Secret Service: Hillary and Obama stink like sulfur

At a Hillary Clinton rally last Tuesday in Greensboro, NC, Obama took an exaggerated whiff of his arm and said, “I was reading the other day. There’s a guy on the radio who apparently said me and Hillary are demons, said we smell like sulfur. Ain’t that something? Now, I mean, come on people!” (CNN)

The POS was making fun of Alex Jones, described by CNN as “the founder of the conspiracy website InfoWars” as if there are no real conspiracies. Of course, this is the same CNN that reports as truth select conspiracies, such as Hillary’s accusations of a “vast right wing conspiracy” and the more recent “Alt.Right” conspiracy.

I have Obama to thank because were it not for his mockery, I would not have known of Jones’ fascinating remark that he had been told by the Secret Service (“people that are in protective details”) that Obama and Hillary both stink of sulfur.

Here’s a transcript of what Jones said, beginning at the 0:55 mark in the video above:

“I’m never a lesser of two evils person, but with Hillary, there’s not even the same universe. She is an abject, psychopathic, demon from Hell that as soon as she gets into power is going to try to destroy the planet. I’m sure of that, and people around her say she’s so dark now, and so evil, and so possessed that they are having nightmares, they’re freaking out. Folks let me just tell you something, and if media wants to go with this, that’s fine. There are dozens of videos and photos of Obama having flies land on him, indoors, at all times of year, and he’ll be next to a hundred people and no one has flies on them.

Hillary, reportedly, I mean, I was told by people around her that they think she’s demon-possessed, okay? I’m just going to go ahead and say it, okay? They said that they’re scared. That’s why when I see her when kids are by her, I actually get scared myself, with a child — with that big rubber face and that — I mean this woman is dangerous, ladies and gentleman. I’m telling you, she is a demon. This is Biblical. She’s going to launch a nuclear war. The Russians are scared of her. […]

Imagine how bad she smells, man? I’m told her and Obama, just stink, stink, stink, stink. You can’t wash that evil off, man. Told there’s a rotten smell around Hillary. I’m not kidding, people say, they say — folks, I’ve been told this by high up folks. They say listen, Obama and Hillary both smell like sulfur. I never said this because the media will go crazy with it, but I’ve talked to people that are in protective details, they’re scared of her. And they say listen, she’s a frickin’ demon and she stinks and so does Obama. I go, like what? Sulfur. They smell like Hell.

But it’s not just Alex Jones who says Hillary Clinton stinks.

Dolly Kyle, an attorney who was a longtime “lover” of Bill Clinton, said that Hillary stank when Kyle first met her in the Little Rock airport in 1974: “I had never seen or smelled any woman like that, ever,” who “emitted an overpowering odor of perspiration and greasy hair”. (See “Longtime mistress says Bill Clinton had 2,000 sex partners; lesbian Hillary had hairy toes”)

Kit Daniels of InfoWars adds that “Anonymous sources inside the Secret Service also revealed Hillary still smells ‘like a dead pig’.”

Perhaps this explains why both Hillary and Obama attract flies. See:

The fly is a carrion symbol. It is drawn to dead and dying things. From Wikipedia:

The female housefly usually only mates once and stores the sperm for later use. She lays batches of about 100 eggs on decaying organic matter such as garbage, carrion or feces. […]

House flies are capable of carrying over 100 pathogens, such as those causing typhoid, cholera, salmonellosis, bacillary dysentery, tuberculosis, anthrax, ophthalmia, and parasitic worms. Some strains have become immune to the most common insecticides.

House flies feed on liquid or semiliquid substances beside solid material which has been softened by salivating or vomit. Because of their large intake of food they deposit feces constantly, which is one of the factors that makes the insect a dangerous carrier of pathogens.

Attracted to “garbage, carrion or feces”; carrier of pathogens; “feed on…vomit”: “deposit feces constantly” — perfect description of Hillary and Obama.

“Lord of the flies” is also the meaning of the Greek name for Beelzebub, one of the princes of Hell.

According to the blog post, “Demonic Possession Symptoms, Signs, Stories and Facts“:

“Other phenomena associated with the presence of a demon include an acrid stench….”

From Vocabulary.com, on the definition of “acrid”:

Acrid is the nasty sting that you feel in your nose when you walk by a building that just burned down––it’s sulfur mixed with smoke.

order-of-exorcistsFrom an account of an exorcism in Los Angeles by a priest of the Catholic Order of Exorcists at The Sacred Order of Saint Michael the Archangel:

“It was a rainy mid-April day around 5PM when a call came from one of our bishops in Long Beach California, asking if there is a priest available to do a house blessing in a rundown, low income area of Los Angeles. I said I was available. […]

As I entered the dark hallway I saw shadows moving along the hallway walls, but there was no one around. I heard sounds of a woman screaming that echo throughout the building. […] As I entered the room, the possessed was sitting on the floor with a comb in her hand, scratching and cutting herself with the comb, while screaming and laughing at the top of her lungs. Her stepfather and mother helped me to place her on a mattress that was laying on the floor. She was only twenty years old, but appeared wrinkled like she was over hundred, had a gray pallor, and a horrible stench.

Media’s Orwellian censorship on Hillary Clinton’s health: HuffPo deletes article; bans author who fears for his life

First, it’s the New York Times declaring and advocating abandoning objectivity in reporting on Trump. Then, another NYT writer urges Google to censor searches by concealing information on Hillary Clinton’s health.

Now, Huffington Post is actually resorting to post-publication censorship by deleting two articles on Hillary’s health and banning the author.

As reported by Paul Joseph Watson for InfoWars, yesterday, August 28, within hours after Huffington Post published a commentary piece by David Seaman discussing questions surrounding Hillary’s health problems, the article was deleted, followed by HuffPo banning Seaman altogether by revoking his posting rights.

The link to Seaman’s erstwhile article now contains an editor’s note stating, “This post is no longer available on the Huffington Post.”

In 2008, however, articles questioning John McCain’s health were heavily featured on Huffington Post.

In the YouTube video below (followed by my transcript), Seaman described HuffPo‘s censorship as “chilling” and “Orwellian,” and the media coverage of this election as totally biased. He now fears for his life.

Seaman said:

“It’s chilling. I haven’t really absorbed this. Huffington Post…they’ve revoked my publishing access and deleted both of my articles that were published earlier over the weekend. Both of my articles have been pulled without notice of any kind, just completely deleted from the Internet, and both of those articles mentioned Hillary’s health…and I linked to a video that YouTuber Joseph Paul Watson had uploaded back on August 4, showing signs that Hillary Clinton’s health is quite poor, showing something that appears to be either a seizure or involuntary muscle spasm while she was questioned by a number of reporters. That video…has been viewed more than 3.5 million times. So it was a very newsworthy thing for me to link out to, people are talking about it…. Whenever a video concerning a presidential candidate’s health is viewed more than 3.5 million times, somebody who’s under contract to Huffington Post and to AOL should be able to link out to that, especially as a journalist living in the United States of America should be able to link out to that without having their account revoked without any notice…late on a Sunday night…. This is really not good. I’ve written hundreds of stories, filed hundreds of stories over my years as a journalist and pundit, and I’ve never had anything like this happen…. I honestly have never seen anything like this. This is happening in the United States in 2016. It’s frankly chilling, I’m a little scared…. I’m doing this video also to say I am not suicidal right now. I am not a particularly clumsy person. I don’t own a car at the moment, I uber around everywhere. So if I am to slip in the shower over the next couple of days or something silly like that, we have to kind of employ probability and statistics here ’cause I am not a clumsy person, right. I am also not a depressed person right now. I am a person who’s spooked out though. This is extremely spooky. I don’t like it, and privately I’ve said to some of my friends what’s happening with some of the media companies in their coverage of this election, I’ve never seen anything like it. It’s scary, how they’re not even booking guests to do opposing views. It’s just these non-stop propaganda segments against Trump about how he’s so racist, these emotional knee-jerk points over and over again — that he’s racist, that he’s sexist, and he’s this and he’s that. But they’re ignoring one really big issue that’s starting to bubble up on the Internet. Certainly, I would not have posted about it had Paul Watson’s video had not already been viewed more than 3.5 million times…. And to delete my post about it without notice on a Sunday night and to revoke my access, which has never been done to me before…. I don’t know what to do. I just want to document it now while it’s all fresh. I’ve taken some screen shots, we now have this video, at least it will be archived, we can all spread the word. And in the morning, I can assure you when I’ve had a good night’s sleep I’m going to seek some very good legal counsel and see what the next steps here are.

Thank you again so much, everybody who watches this tonight. I don’t feel like I’m alone right now. Again, I am not depressed or anything, it just spooks me out. This is not good. This is not protection of my First Amendment right, not only as a citizen here publishing on U.S. soil. I’m not down in Brazil somewhere like Glen Greenwald. I’m not publishing controversial stuff; I just linked out to a fucking YouTube video that’s been viewed 3.5 million times since the beginning of this month. And for Huffington Post to delete those posts without notice, that is Orwellian, that’s a thing I read about in mainland China…. Something is up here; this is not unbiased coverage of this election.

Thank you, guys, for watching. And, again, thank you for having my back…. Just by watching this, you are a record of what’s going on. You can correct the record if something happens, and they start to spin some bullshit narrative. I’m perfectly fine, I’m not clumsy, I plan on reporting more on this certainly. Now the story is they’re deleting and censoring commentary on her health. Why is that?”

You heard him. Help David Seaman by spreading the word via your email and social media!

Here’s the video by Paul Joseph Watson to which Seaman posted a link in his now-deleted HuffPo article. The video has now been viewed more than 3.6 million times.

Secret Service is source of leaks on Hillary Clinton’s deteriorating health

It is said that a measure of a person’s character is how you treat people whom you don’t have to treat nicely, i.e., people who are your power subordinates and underlings.

By that measure, Hillary Clinton fails utterly, for it is well known that she treats her underlings with dismissive disdain and contempt.

When her husband was President, people were told not to look at or speak to her if they happened across her in some hallway of the White House. As recounted by Ronald Kessler in his book, First Family Detail, former FBI agent Coy Copeland said that within the White House, Hillary had a “standing rule that no one spoke to her when she was going from one location to another. In fact, anyone who would see her coming would just step into the first available office.” A former Secret Service agent said, “If Hillary was walking down a hall, you were supposed to hide behind drapes used as partitions.”

Hillary was and is especially rude and contemptuous toward those charged with protecting her with their lives — Arkansas state troopers (when Bill was governor), military aides, and Secret Service agents whom Hillary treats as if they were her servants. See:

But those pesky “little people” have teeth and they bite back.

It turns out that the Secret Service is the source of leaks on Hillary’s rapidly deteriorating health.

According to InfoWars reporter Joe Biggs, during the Republican National Convention last June, two Secret Service agents approached InfoWars and asked to speak to them. Biggs describes what happened, beginning at around the 5:30 mark of the video below:

The Secret Service contacted me. They said that Hillary Clinton has Parkinson’s disease. They [Hillary’s people] spent over a quarter million dollars on these stairs…to allow her to step down from the vehicle to the ground because she has trouble walking. They [Secret Service] said that any kind of flashes or strobes will set her off into a seizure, and that’s why they wanted to come us. They wanted to contact us and give us information because they knew we [InforWars] would be able to get this out. [Unlike the MSM,] we wouldn’t be scared to do it. And you know it really makes a lot of sense when you watch all these videos. The fact that she’s refusing to do…these news conferences.”

Hillary had not done a press conference for 8½ months. Her last press conference was on December 4, 2015. (Washington Post)

At this point, Alex Jones makes the observation that Hillary’s campaign rallies seem to have fewer flashes and strobe lights as Trump’s rallies. So Biggs proposes that InfoWars brings cameras with flashes and strobe lights to one of Hillary’s rallies and see if they’re stopped at the gate and barred from bringing the equipment inside.

Biggs concludes:

“It’s coming down to the wire. Her health is fading very fast. And it kind of makes you wonder what’s gonna happen, if they’re really trying to lift her up. I mean it’s almost like this is the [movie] Weekend at Bernie’s. They’re doing everything to hold her up. You see these guys walking alongside of her, injecting her with different stuff…. Just to keep her going, a little bit more, a little bit longer, that’s what they’re trying to do. It’s so confusing to try to find out why they’re trying to push her so far.”

Gun control propaganda: video of fake gun store with fake customers

A pro-gun control group that calls itself States United Against Gun Violence did a video of a gun store wherein potential customers were dissuaded from buying guns by the store clerk.

There’s just one big thing wrong with the video: It’s fake. Both the potential “customers” and the “store clerk” are actors. Even the “gun store” is fake.

From Infowars:

“That’s quite the ‘hidden camera social experiment’ when your [filming] permit is for ‘actors’ to be ‘interviewed,’” David Codrea of the Shooter’s Log reported, who filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for the filming permit.

Additionally, the gun control group may not have followed the city’s gun laws because, as Codrea pointed out, records for the fake gun store’s inventory were no where to be found.

“Noting the complexity of special theatrical permit requirements for applicants and dealers, and restrictive New York laws on imitation firearms, it’s surprising to find that a fake gun shop can be set up containing hundreds of replica weapons with no paperwork, apparently on just the say-so of on-site NYPD officers,” he wrote.

So basically, a gun control group filmed a fake clerk of a fake gun store obtaining fake reactions from fake customers and then presented the video as genuine to the public.

That’s the anti-gun movement in a nutshell; unlike pro-gun activists who volunteer their free time to organize public rallies to promote the Second Amendment, authoritarians hire paid actors to deceive the public into surrendering their gun rights.

That’s because gun control did not originate from the grassroots but is rather a top-down movement bankrolled by powerful politicians, such as former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg, who want nothing more than to expand government powers at the expense of individual liberties.
