Did you notice Epstein’s child sex trafficking case sounds like Pizzagate?

I’m sure others have noticed that the actual Epstein child sex ring sounds a lot like the Pizzagate made up story. Why might this be?

If I knew of an *ACTUAL” sex-trafficking ring involving powerful people that I couldn’t cover up totally, I’d instead swap details and direct it to patsies. Then, when it is proven false, people would stop looking for the sex trafficking OR assume all such stories are over blown and it was “just another conspiracy theory”. That’s what I would do if I was a master at sowing discord via social media. Like the folks at the Internet Research Agency in Russia.

“Proponents of the Pizzagate conspiracy theory falsely claimed that the emails contained coded messages referring to human trafficking and connecting several U.S. restaurants and high-ranking officials of the Democratic Party with an alleged child sex ring involving the restaurant and pizzeria Comet Ping Pong, located in Washington, D.C.” Wikipedia

Let me rewrite this about the Epstein case based on what we know now:

The Epstein case has evidence from emails, phone logs, plane logs and dozens of witness interviews of human trafficking, child rape and molestation connecting several high-ranking officials of the Republican party, Democratic party, international bankers and British royalty. It has been confirmed that a child sex ring operated out of residences owned and occupied by Jeffery Epstein in Palm Beach, New York, The US Virgin Islands and a ranch in New Mexico.

It is not clear if any restaurants were involved.  -Spockopedia

 Edgar M. Welch, a 28-year-old father of two from Salisbury, N.C., recently read online that Comet Ping Pong, a pizza restaurant in northwest Washington, was harboring young children as sex slaves as part of a child-abuse ring led by Hillary Clinton.

Not long after arriving at the pizzeria, the police said, he fired from an assault-like AR-15 rifle. The police arrested him. They found a rifle and a handgun in the restaurant. No one was hurt.
There is a reason that Epstein’s lawyers, fixers, moles and cronies didn’t want this story to make the papers.

The conspiracy was directed at the Clintons and Democrats, since they were the ones certain powerful players didn’t want to win. As of this week we now have evidence that the Seth Rich lie was planted by the Russians. Maybe we will find out they planted Pizzagate too.

When you have captured the minds of some people they just keep going. From March 2017
‘Pizzagate’ protest stakes out in front of the White House  

“I don’t have any doubt that Pizzagate is real,” said Kori Hayes, an attendee from Middleburg, Fla., according to the Washington Post. “But nothing is being said about it.” Hayes and her family were the ones wearing the Pizzagate shirts.

I wonder if they will print up EpsteinGate shirts?

How Power Fixers Cover Up Child Rape: Epstein and Trump

The Epstein case might be another way to bust Trump for one of his many serious crimes. But it won’t be easy. We can expect Trump’s White House to deal with this case like the others.

First deny. Then project Trump’s actions onto other people, in this case, Bill Clinton. Next they will try to distance themselves from the perpetrator while discrediting the victims involved. Finally there will be lots of screaming about Witch Hunts.

Remember, with Trump there are actual crimes that happened. We have records of victims being paid off in Trump’s fraud and theft crimes. In other cases people were threatened, so they would shut up. We have evidence of that too. Trump has always used both high-level legal tricks and low-level thuggery.

For Trump’s alleged sexual assault cases he uses the same tricks. Only in this case, he might be the one who sees himself as a victim! If Epstein has evidence against Trump I think it would go like this:

“It never happened. (show the photo evidence) I was told she was 18! (Play the audio evidence) That could have been anyone! Where is your proof!? (play the video evidence) “That’s fake!”

Tips for Dems when they roll out Trump’s Impeachment

I believe there is already a group planning the impeachment roll out. I’ll call them the Impeach The MFer Already (ITMFA) group. I’ll call the woman in charge of the media strategy the Media Strategist for Impeach the MFer Already or (MS for ITMFA). She probably already has her staff lining up the experts on emoluments, obstruction of justice, money laundering and other crimes from the Mueller Report.

Her goal is to show the crimes and/or treasonous activity of Trump AND HIS INNER CIRCLE and push new parts of it out to the public every single day, using multiple methods on multiple platforms to multiple audiences.

The Democrats need to tell a story to the American people that will convince them to act in a certain way. Impeachment will require figuring out the best ways to deliver the news, images and video from the hearings to the multiple audiences that have to be reached. How? My first tip:

1) Recreate conclusions from the Mueller Report in a way the American people can absorb.

That involves first getting experts to explain the crimes, second providing video of the criminals talking about doing those crimes and third, getting more experts to refute . . . → Read More: Tips for Dems when they roll out Trump’s Impeachment

Why crap stats about gun free zones must be called out 

Gun humpers love to spread crap data. Their go to guy is John Lott. Even though his data has been debunked and is crap, it works for the believers and it sucks in unaware people too. Why is that?

Because normal people don’t want to argue with gun humpers. Who wants to argue with assholes? But gun humpers want to argue with you! Usually using their own rules, data and assumptions.

If nobody is constantly challenging their data and bullshit ideas like “more people with guns will save the day!” they get laws passed where more people have guns in more places. And they don’t save the day.

Here’s some recent research on mass shooting in Gun Free Zones, in case anyone wants to see it. But like the Mueller Report, the people who should read it, won’t. Mass Shootings in the United States: 2009-2016 -Study April 11, 2017 Everytown Research

I also got a lot of solid information on other research like the FBI studies in this great article by Evan Defilippis and Devin Hughes ·June 18, 2015,

I call out gun humpers’ crap stats on gun free zones

Gun humpers love to spread what I call bumpersticker “logic” and crap data. Even though it is crap, it is really powerful for the believers and it sucks in unaware people too. I just spend 7 hours trying to make a compelling short video about BS that the Gun nuts spread. I don’t think I was successful. Now my mousing arm and shoulder hurt.

However here is the attempt

AOC gets daily death threats. Who is going to act on them?

In this piece about the threats that AOC gets, she tweets about the “anonymous” threats that they get.

Yep. Our offices are flooded with bigoted calls too – so much so that we have to put energy into searching for actual constituents.

We forward all the threats to Capitol Police to build files. For all those who think your bigoted calls + digital threats are anonymous: Enjoy! https://t.co/Tw0LWnpmDh

— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) February 1, 2019

So, the Capitol Police are building files. Great. What happens next? We often hear about how the Secret Service goes and has a “talk” with people who make threats to the President or other high-ranking politicians. Are AOC and IIhar Omar getting help from the Secret Service or FBI? If so, I’d like to read about people who have been arrested, tried and convicted. People need to read about those stories.

For a long time I’ve been thinking about how poorly we deal with on-line threats. Especially to women and especially from men with guns.

I think an organization needs to step in to help people (especially women) who get threatened online. There are groups that defend speech, but as I have . . . → Read More: AOC gets daily death threats. Who is going to act on them?

Who can short circuit Trump’s claims of executive privilege?

Back before the Mueller Report was released to the public, I though a lot of redactions in the Mueller report would be Executive Privilege ones. I was wrong.

Barr didn’t use Executive Privilege to redact info, but now the question of Executive Privilege and the Report comes up again.

At the time the report was released I asked my friend Lisa Graves, co-director of Documented , if she would be talking about redactions on the Lawrence O’Donnell show. I had a few questions about Executive Privilege that I know the answers to now, but I really wanted to know what smart moves Democrats could make given this current delaying tactic?

Trump does things like this all the time, ignoring norms and breaking conventions. The democrats on the committee always seem to be in reactive mode. Trump’s assertion of Executive Privilege is bogus, so what are the steps to flip it so it hurts Trump and speeds his impeachment?

Ian Millhiser over at ThinkProgress said,

Trump’s claim that the Mueller report is protected by executive privilege is hot garbage

He doesn’t have a legal claim, but he can probably run out the clock.
