101 Things We Learned from WikiLeaks’ Podesta Emails
US voters have been given a rare, even unprecedented opportunity to look at the machinery inside an electoral campaign and a foundation, as presented by the insiders themselves. Being afforded this privilege motivated one columnist to assert: “Those voting for Hillary Clinton, defending Clinton and supporting Clinton without reading the information reported by WikiLeaks are intellectually no different than those who criticize climate science without ever having read the science” (Denver Post, 2/11/2016). Where access to the “power elites” is typically denied to virtually anyone, thanks to WikiLeaks it is now granted to virtually everyone.

What follows is a list of the 101 stories that caught my attention during the month-long release of the Podesta emails, published by WikiLeaks. Are there only 101 things to be learned? There are likely thousands more—this is by no means a comprehensive account, but more of a personal snapshot. Ideally, one would read each single email, and try to fit them together into larger patterns to form a bigger picture. It would also be very tedious work. I have likely read no more than 20% of the total mass of emails—and even so, look at what we found. My method in producing this overview involved some triangulation: my own reading of the emails, added to key findings posted by WikiLeaks through its Twitter account, plus media coverage by the very few journalists with a dedicated interest. Of course even a complete reading would not reveal everything: not all communications between these insiders was done by email. One can imagine there would have been much more said face-to-face, at lunches, dinners, and board meetings, not to mention what was spoken on the phone.

The information below is loosely organized into broad thematic groups. These include discussion of foreign policy; foreign campaign donors; the Clinton Foundation and suggestions of corruption; media manipulation; the corruption of the political system; Hillary Clinton’s private server scandal; campaign staffers ridiculing Bill Clinton; insider criticisms of Hillary Clinton as a presidential candidate; confusion over Hillary Clinton’s political stances; the corporate oligarchy; free trade; Hillary Clinton as a member of the establishment; the employment of identity politics; religion; and, the white working class. More discussion follows at the end.

Foreign Policy: Russia, the Middle East, Canada

(1) Jose Fernandez, the Assistant Secretary of State for Economic, Energy and Business Affairs, led the media to believe that he was acting in an independent and neutral manner in signing off on a deal that would sell 20% of the US’ uranium supplies to Russia, when he represented Hillary Clinton’s State Department on the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS). The Clinton Foundation accepted donations from parties that would profit from the uranium deal with Russia. Fernandez, far from being impartial, was revealed to be active in Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, and became a board member of the associated Center for American Progress, chaired by John Podesta. [Emails 2053 and 2059]

(2) While Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail has denounced Donald Trump for fictitious links to Vladimir Putin, in more private settings she offered substantial praise for Putin, repeatedly.

(3) Russia, you say? While repeatedly accusing Russia of hacking John Podesta’s email account, it turns out that Podesta was rather careless with his own information security. For example, in one email, he reveals that he lost his phone in a taxi cab. There is an email that acknowledges worries about internal leakers, with an eruption into accusations about “trust issues” within the Clinton campaign itself. Yet another email discusses the problem of leaks from Campaign staff. A tight ship it is not.

(4) “She created this mess and she knows it”—those are Huma Abedin’s words, Hillary Clinton’s closest confidante, on the tangle created by Clinton in obtaining $12 million from the King of Morocco for the Clinton Global Initiative.

(5) On Libya, Hillary Clinton’s leaked corporate speeches paint a picture of a Secretary of State who would take no responsibility for her inaction on security for staff in Benghazi, and who judged the results of the war in Libya in 2011 to be a success.

(6) On ISIS: “Contrary to Qatar and Saudi Arabia’s assurances that they do not support Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL), Hillary Clinton apparently believes that they are in fact providing ‘clandestine financial and logistic support to IS and other radical Sunni groups in the region,’ according to an August 17, 2014 email”. Those two states are not only defended by Hillary Clinton as allies, she has received many millions in donations from them to the Clinton Foundation.

(7) Regarding Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as a surrogate—he was identified as follows: “Prime Minister Trudeau has been a longtime progressive ally of CAP’s [Center for American Progress, allied to the Democratic Party]…. an active and engaged partner in our Global Progress program”. Another email bore an attachment showing a photo of John Podesta whispering into Trudeau’s ear. The title of the message calls Trudeau “Mr. Canada”.


The Clinton Foundation; Foreign Campaign Donors

(8) Bill Clinton received a $1 million gift from the government of Qatar, via the Clinton Foundation. The Clinton Foundation recently confirmed receipt of the gift. However, it was also confirmed that the gift had been received without informing the State Department as required.

(9) “Take the money!” wrote Jennifer Palmieri, regarding allowing the Democratic Party’s foreign registered agents to bring in foreign government donations to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign—in violation of the law. Clinton spokesman, Robby Mook, concurred: “I’m ok just taking the money and dealing with any attacks”. Discussion throughout the email chain involves frequent eye-rolling at the idea of an “arbitrary” ban against foreign lobbyists. The consensus seems tilted in favour of allowing such foreign influence.

(10) Indeed, a somewhat cryptic email suggested the money was taken: “Foreign govt donors: all the money is in”.

(11) One story covered foreign donors’ apparent “private jet scam” benefiting the Clintons, as spotted in this email. The Clintons did not declare such non-cash contributions on their tax returns.

(12) Chelsea Clinton also profited personally from the Clinton Foundation. According to her father’s associate, Doug Band, an investigation looked into Chelsea Clinton “getting paid for campaigning, using foundation resources for her wedding and life for a decade…”.

(13) Transparency? Foreign donors? Let’s not go there: Jennifer Palmieri, a senior member of Hillary Clinton’s campaign staff wrote: “We recommend not engaging on specific questions related to 1) donors; 2) implementation of the MOU; or 3) HRC’s knowledge of donors to the Foundation. These are rabbit holes. Press want us to go deeper into these subjects to try to get us to introduce more facts which will lead to more questions and give the story more life”.

(14) In a “governance review” of the Clinton Foundation, there was a concern over conflicts of interest and “an expectation of a quid pro quo benefits in return for gifts”.

(15) In another “audit review” of the Clinton Foundation, it was pointed out that many employees of the Foundation were unaware of conflict of interest policies.


(16) Bill Clinton’s conflicts of interest: an aide to former president Bill Clinton admitted, “I think there WJC may have some real serious conflicts if we start to make too many rules,” adding, “we can not ignore the nexus of WJC’s life”. Doug Band, who scored business for Bill Clinton via Teneo, resented having to sign a conflict of interest policy when, “Oddly, wjc [Bill Clinton] does not have to sign such a document even though he is personally paid by 3 cgi sponsors, gets many expensive gifts from them, some that are at home etc. I could add 500 different examples of things like this…”.

(17) The Clinton Foundation acted “more like a political operation” than a charity, as discussed in detail in this article. See the original memo here.

Rigging the Media

(18) Media collusion: “Washington correspondent John Harwood sends Podesta his private approval of Hillary Clinton appearances, as if he’s on the team. Columnist Nicholas Kristof, in advance of an interview with Bill Clinton, ­emails his questions, which Podesta’s team passes around to staffers to shape Clinton’s answers. A Washington reporter gives Hillary Clinton veto power over quotations he can use from an interview. Another reporter is praised as someone who has ‘never disappointed’ in delivering stories the campaign wants ‘teed up’ for public consumption”.

(19) More media collusion: “Clinton’s campaign coordinated with the New York Times, which gave it approval on quotes for a long profile on the candidate. Times reporter Mark Leibovich ­emailed campaign communications director Jennifer Palmieri on July 7, 2015, seeking approval on the Clinton quotes. A Boston Globe editorial writer worked with the Clinton campaign to give her a ‘big presence’ in coverage during the candidate’s swing through the area amid the Democratic primary. Marjorie Pritchard, the Globe’s op-ed editor, emailed campaign chair John Podesta to tell him, ‘It would be good to get it in on Tuesday, when she is in New Hampshire. That would give her a big presence on Tuesday’”.

(20) Even more media collusion: Donna Brazile, Chair of the Democratic National Committee and a CNN contributor, forwarded a debate question in advance to Hillary Clinton’s campaign, in order to cheat in an upcoming debate against Bernie Sanders. Later, another email … [more]

Suspected Pedophile Ring Exposed Home About Contact DC PizzaGate: A Primer UPDATED 07/07/17

Warning: Reading this article will result in what is known as being “red-pilled”.

I’ve created this to share the information Anonymous has collectively gathered and researched about a suspected pedophilia and human trafficking ring we seem to have uncovered existing within our DC politicians and the elite class.

It started with an incredibly suspicious Podesta email which had skeptics suggesting they weren’t actually talking about pizza, but rather in code:


If this is not speaking in code, then it makes absolutely no sense. Not a single person from Podesta’s legal team nor mainstream media has been able to offer a coherent explanation on what this could mean if ACTUALLY pizza and map related. The initial email merely mentions the cloth is white with black, which is then translated by Podesta’s personal assistant into ‘containing a map’. Handkerchief code for sexual preference is a well documented phenomenon. “Cheese pizza” has long been known as code for child porn in pedophile communities comprising the deep web.

It goes down hill pretty quickly. Behold this disturbing “coincidence” with Hillary Clinton’s ex-Chief of Staff, Tamera Luzzatto. Below is another double-verified, Wikileaks published email sent from Tamera to John Podesta. It speaks of transporting young children to pools for “entertainment”.


Sure, not too incriminating until you consider this:


Pictured above is “Grand Tam” Luzzatto. The Evie’s Crib headliner alone should be probable cause for issuing warrants: “Evelyn is growing up. Soon she will be the queen of the entire US of A. right now, for a limited time only, you can spend some time with her online, raw and uncut. Take advantage of this now, as in the future she will have the power of life and death over you.” UPDATE 12/12: This blog has since been made private. Archived version – Evie’s Crib. Edit: 1981 documentary Boys for Sale references child prostitution and trafficking as the “farm circuit”, which is suspicious considering the multiple farm references made in Tamera’s email to Podesta. Swimming pools also seem to contain cultural reference to pedophilia according to documentary An Open Secret.

For those still not convinced there is code being used, here’s a few more examples (although this is not even close to exhaustive coverage):

“I’m dreaming about your hot dog stand in Hawaii…” Wikileaks ID 30231
Obama flies in $65,000 worth of pizzas and hot dogs from Chicago for private White House event Wikileaks GIFiles ID 12230
“Do you think I’ll do better playing dominos on cheese than on pasta?” Wikileaks ID 30613
“Would love to get pizza for an hour?” Wikileaks ID 26345
“Still in torture chamber” in email with subject line “Last night was fun” Wikileaks ID 56492
pizza.jpg attached in email which solely reads “As John said, it doesn’t get any better than this” Wikileaks ID 10037

In other Podesta emails, a pizza joint called “Comet Ping Pong Pizza” is referenced multiple times. Confirmation can be found at Wikileaks Podesta search = Comet.

Is Pizzagate Real Or Is Pizzagate Fake News : The History, Greater Implications, And Reality By Roy MacGregor
The history of this scandal is older than the vast majority of people reading it, and that’s just based on what we can find. Way back in 1977, May 16th to be precise, The Chicago Tribune ran with the headline, “Chicago is the center of national child porno ring.”15 By all means, check that footnote. The articles in the edition are largely dedicated to exposing the underground world of child prostitution, child pornography, and child trafficking. Also in that edition are articles titled, “US Orders Hearings on Child Pornography,” “Child Sex: Square Block in New Town Tells it All,” and “Police Hunt 26 in Child Porno Ring.” The most interesting thing about that series of articles is where, on page 8, section two, column 3, it mentions “more than 30,000 index cards listing clients around the country, some of them prominent people and some federal employees in Washington.” The Dallas police handed that list of clients to the State Department because they thought it should be in the hands of a federal agency. What did the State Department do? They destroyed the whole thing. That’s what you should do with a list of people who commit crimes against children, right? Their excuse was, “… the cards were not relevant to any fraud case concerning a passport.”

The common thread in all of the child sex trafficking cases about which anything at all is printed is journalists or citizens bringing the crimes to the attention of law enforcement, law enforcement doing nearly nothing, and judges and politicians covering the whole thing up. We saw it with the Jimmy Savile case in Britain,16 we saw it with the Franklin cover-up,17 we saw it with the Duroux affair,18 we saw it with the Jerry Sandusky case,19 the Gasy case,20 and on, and on. It’s gotten to be a predictable cycle of events that seems to pop up every so often to enrage people, then be quickly forgotten once a sacrificial scapegoat is offered to the masses as a token of appeasement. In fact, we can’t seem to find a prominent pedophile case where there wasn’t an extensive and well-documented cover up. Not only is the preceding cover up normal, so too is the light sentence of a single perpetrator for crimes that obviously involve more than one person. As a reader, please send us any information you have in any case that does not follow that pattern because we would like to believe that this isn’t the case.

Taking the Franklin cover up as a case in point, the Discovery Channel made an hour-long documentary that showed the machinations of a massive pedophile ring that touched government at the highest level. That documentary, called Conspiracy of Silence, was never allowed to air. The production costs for the documentary were refunded to the producers, but by whom still remains undetermined. You need not take our word for it. Watch the rough cut. There are countless examples floating around YouTube which get deleted all the time. We’ll even link one here for you to watch.

THE EVIDENCE: Did Roger Stone Help Uncover a Satanic 'Cabal' Involving the Clintons? by David Seaman JANUARY 30, 2019
To understand this bizarre, but true story - the largest political scandal of recent times, and one that entangles the Clintons, as well as the Soros and Rothschild international banking families - you have to go back to 2010.

Many have been threatened, sued, falsely imprisoned and in some rare cases even killed in pursuit of the details of this scandal.

Yet now we have all the pieces, and accountability for these people is needed. FULCRUM is not a law enforcement agency, we are researchers and a media outlet in Washington. After this information becomes widely known and validated worldwide, it will be up to those in law enforcement to take broad action.

Beginning around 2010, approximately a year after President Obama took office, rumors began to swirl in the truth community that some kind of Satanic cult or club had quietly seized the reins of control in Washington, D.C., and was beginning to assert itself.

Famed conservative journalist Andrew Breitbart called out John Podesta, a long time Clinton insider, and Bill Clinton's former White House chief of staff, as being a key part of this occult child abuse effort.

"What's in your closet, John Podesta? Big Podesta? Big Soros? Do you want us to play these games?" Breitbart asked mockingly into a Slate reporter's recorder in one of his last known interviews, clearly exasperated with the "politics of personal destruction" he was experiencing for calling out these powerful men, and their alleged links to some of the absolute seediest activities on planet Earth. "F**k you, John Podesta," Breitbart appears to conclude in the interview, which can still be found on YouTube HERE.
On February 4, 2011 the above was tweeted about John Podesta from Andrew Breitbart's verified Twitter account, and several months later Breitbart died of sudden heart failure, only in his early 40s.

The rumors somewhat subside after Breitbart's death, and during his two terms Barack Obama is able to enact a surprising amount of his agenda, with the help of his Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Rumors continue to swirl that Obama is some kind of Rothschild/Soros operative, and this culminates with Secretary Clinton extrajudicially wiping out Libya's leader and leadership, ruthlessly (he was sodomized and beaten to death in the street by his own people, if you remember). His crime? As we would later learn, Libya's leader was pushing for a pan-African gold backed currency, which put him in direct conflict with the Rothschild banking deepstate's doctrine.

The banking deepstate wants the world to use debt backed paper currencies - their currencies - now and forever more. Things like gold and cryptocurrency are not debt backed, and exist in discrete quantities that can't be inflated or deflated at will by a handful of banking families. They can't be easily controlled from all angles.

John Podesta largely escapes mass public negative attention after Breitbart's death, until in late 2016 when his private emails begin to be leaked by WikiLeaks in suspenseful batches (, hitting a crescendo just days before the US Presidential election in which newcomer Republican candidate Donald Trump was pitted against establishment Democratic darling Hillary Clinton, the same woman who decimated Libya at the behest of the Rothschilds.

As Podesta's emails have been examined by millions in the more than two years since their release, a scandal known as "Pizzagate" has exploded into the public consciousness, despite mainstream media opposition and unprecedented attempts at censorship.

Pizzagate, as outlined in our 8 minute documentary viewed 215,000+ times on Bitchute so far, focuses around the fact that Podesta repeatedly uses "pizza" as a code word for an item of some kind - many researchers believe pizza is a code word for a young female child.

It has nothing to do with pizza shops, although a bizarre pizza shop owner does pop up repeatedly in Podesta's emails, and that pizza shop owner was curiously labeled by Washingtonian Magazine as one of the most powerful men in DC. He also visited the Obama White House a minimum of five times according to publicly accessible logs.

John Podesta, who received spiritcooking invitations (, has personally dined with Lynn Forester de Rothschild and George Soros as far back as 2007, according to WikiLeaks emails (

John Podesta is not a mere gopher; he's a fixer to the two wealthiest and most powerful families in the West.
This is very bad for Soros and the Rothschilds as Podesta's perversion goes properly viral around the world, thanks to Roger Stone's recent indictment and arrest. Millions of smart people have read the WikiLeaks, including many here in Washington, DC.

Roger Stone must have known exactly what he was doing in late 2016 when he drew voters' attention to John Podesta's bizarre emails. He did nothing wrong by promoting the emails, of course.

General Michael Flynn also drew attention to the Podesta emails from his verified Twitter account just four days before the Presidential election in 2016.
Vast changes of some kind lay ahead.

The Podesta Emails; Part One
Today WikiLeaks begins its series on deals involving Hillary Clinton campaign Chairman John Podesta. Mr Podesta is a long-term associate of the Clintons and was President Bill Clinton's Chief of Staff from 1998 until 2001. Mr Podesta also controls the Podesta Group, a major lobbying firm and is the Chair of the Center for American Progress (CAP), a Washington DC-based think tank. Part 1 of the Podesta Emails comprises 2,060 emails and 170 attachments and focuses on Mr Podesta's communications relating to nuclear energy, and media handling over donations to the Clinton Foundation from mining and nuclear interests; 1,244 of the emails reference nuclear energy. The full collection includes emails to and from Hillary Clinton.

In April 2015 the New York Times published a story about a company called "Uranium One" which was sold to Russian government-controlled interests, giving Russia effective control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States. Since uranium is considered a strategic asset, with implications for the production of nuclear weapons, the deal had to be approved by a committee composed of representatives from a number of US government agencies. Among the agencies that eventually signed off the deal was the State Department, then headed by Secretary Clinton. The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) comprises, among others, the secretaries of the Treasury, Defense, Homeland Security, Commerce and Energy.

As Russian interests gradually took control of Uranium One millions of dollars were donated to the Clinton Foundation between 2009 and 2013 from individuals directly connected to the deal including the Chairman of Uranium One, Ian Telfer. Although Mrs Clinton had an agreement with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors to the Clinton Foundation, the contributions from the Chairman of Uranium One were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons.

When the New York Times article was published the Clinton campaign spokesman, Brian Fallon, strongly rejected the possibility that then-Secretary Clinton exerted any influence in the US goverment's review of the sale of Uranium One, describing this possibility as "baseless".

Mr Fallon promptly sent a memo to the New York Times with a rebuttal of the story (Podesta Email ID 1489).

In this memo, Mr Fallon argued: "Apart from the fact that the State Department was one of just nine agencies involved in CFIUS, it is also true that within the State Department, the CFIUS approval process historically does not trigger the personal involvement of the Secretary of State. The State Department’s principal representative to CFIUS was the Assistant Secretary of State for Economic, Energy and Business Affairs. During the time period in question, that position was held by Jose Fernandez. As you are aware, Mr Fernandez has personally attested that “Secretary Clinton never intervened with me on any CFIUS matter.”

What the Clinton campaign spokesman failed to disclose, however, was the fact that a few days before sending his rebuttal to the New York Times, Jose Fernandez wrote on the evening of the 17 April 2015 to John Podesta following a phone call from Mr Podesta (Email ID 2053): "John, It was good to talk to you this afternoon, and I appreciate your taking the time to call. As I mentioned, I would like to do all I can to support Secretary Clinton, and would welcome your advice and help in steering me to the right persons in the campaign".

Five days after this email (22 April 2015), Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon wrote a memo to the New York Times, declaring that "Jose Fernandez has personally attested that 'Secretary Clinton never intervened with me on any CFIUS matter',” but Fallon failed to mention that Fernandez was hardly a neutral witness in this case, considering that he had agreed with John Podesta to play a role in the Clinton campaign.

The emails show that the contacts between John Podesta and Jose Fernandez go back to the time of internal Clinton campaign concern about the then-forthcoming book and movie "Clinton Cash" by Peter Schweizer on the financial dealings of the Clinton Foundation.

In an email dated 29 March 2015 (Email ID 2059), Jose Fernandez writes to Podesta: "Hi John, I trust you are getting a brief rest after a job well done. Thanks no doubt to your recommendation I have joined the CAP [Center for American Progress] board of trustees, which I'm finding extremely rewarding."

Pizzagate: The Podesta ‘pizza’ emails Posted on June 30, 2017 by Dr. Eowyn | 30 Comments
MY FB lede 07.22.18
4 bookmarking
I’ve never really looked into “pizzagate” before ....
a former longtime FB friend suggested the other day that I was loony enough to even believe in Pizzagate just before blocking me .... sparked my interest in bookmarking the story.
“pizza” .... “pizza” .... pizza” .... “pizza” .... even “pizza” by the hour throughout Podesta’s emails ....
How often have you used the word pizza in your emails?
I’d like to see more of these pizza emails .... Send em along.
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:

The Franklin Cover-up: Child Abuse, Satanism, and Murder in Nebraska, by attorney John W. DeCamp.
The Franklin Scandal: A Story of Powerbrokers, Child Abuse & Betrayal, by Nick Bryant.
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:

(1) James Alefantis <>, the 49th post powerful person in Washington DC. On Oct. 4, 2008, he wrote to John Podesta presumably about a fundraiser at Comet Ping Pong:

“Great show! Great speech. Raised over 40 grand. My only regret is I did not make you a nice pizza. When can I?”

On March 19, 2016, at 5:30 PM, Alefantis sent a joke logo for a “Hillary party” (fundraiser?) to John Podesta’s brother, Tony (#13 below) and Nora Cox-Peled (#3 below) with this email message:

“My graphics guy sent this. No not forward 🙂 “

Note what the arrow in Hillary’s logo is doing to the pizza:

(2) Catherine Chieco <>, a D.C. writer/consultant who donated $1,000 in 2004 to the John Kerry presidential campaign. On Oct. 20, 2015, at 6:22 pm, she wrote to James Alefantis and others re. “Friday night at posto for Tony [Podesta]’s birthday”:

“Will you join us? Small gathering a few days before the pizza extravaganza. Time PDA but probably 7:30 ish. RSVP please!”

(3) Nora Cox-Peled <>, Special Assistant to the Chairman (John Podesta), Podesta Group, August 2015 to August 2016.

(4) Tom Cunningham <>, Vice President of Business Development at Universal Air Travel Plan Inc. (UATP), Washington, D.C.; former legislative assistant to a U.S. Representative.

(5) Leslie Dach <>, businessman; as Senior Counselor at DHS of Obama administration, he worked on promoting Obamacare; aide in Clinton administration; former Executive VP at Wal-Mart (Wikipedia).

(6) Paula Dailey <>, artist/writer/editor at Artz Road Studios, Washington DC (LinkedIn).

(7) Brian Dailey <>, 65-year-old husband of Paula Daily; a D.C. “artist noted for his careers in both art and international relations,” whose life experiences “include national level involvement in arms control, space policy, intelligence systems, and international security” in the Pentagon, Senate Armed Service Committee, Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, and White House National Space Council. (Wikipedia)

(8) Mary Dickie <>, nutritionist/dietician in Washington, DC. (Source)

(9) Peter Kadzik <>, Assistant Attorney General of the Obama administration; close friend of John Podesta who dined together the day after Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi testimony before the House. (Gateway Pundit)

(10) Alan Kriegel <>:

I found a Twitter account of an Ari Kriegel @ajkriegel, but it’s set to private.
I found an Elan Kriegel, who was Director of Analytics for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. (Politico)
FOTM reader Maryaha found an Alan J. Kriegel, who was or is an attorney at Skadden Law in DC. He attended Georgetown University Law Center, and is listed as a First Year Student 1974/75. His wife is Hinda S. Kriegel. The addresses linked to him are all in the same area as Comet Ping Pong. Here is another email between Alan and John Podesta from Wikileaks:
(11) John Podesta <>, chairman of 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential campaign. On Sept. 4, 2014, at 2:28 am, he responded to an email from Susan Sandler (see #14 below) re. “Did you leave a handkerchief“:

“It’s mine, but not worth worrying about.”

On March 3, 2016, at 6:40 pm, he wrote in response to an email from his brother, Tony, one of the most powerful Democrat lobbyists in Washington, D.C.:

“I’m going to pass. I have too much to do before heading to Michigan tomorrow. No need for pizza.”

(12) Mary Podesta <>, wife of John Podesta.

(13) Tony Podesta <>, John’s brother. On March 3, 2016, he wrote to John Podesta:

“29 at between park and Madison right around corner. Let me know. Or I could bring a pizza home.”

“Mary and John, I think you should give notice when changing strategies which have long been in place. I immediately realize something was different by the shape of the box and I contemplated who would be sending me something in the square shaped box. Lo and behold, instead of pasta and wonderful sauces, it was a lovely, tempting assortment of cheeses, Yummy. 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. Best wishes fro a merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Herb. Ps. Do you think I’ll do better playing dominos on cheese than on pasta?”

“Hi John, The realtor found a handkerchief (I think it has a map that seems pizza-related.) Is it yorus [sic]? They can send it if you want. I know you’re busy, so feel free not to respond if it’s not yours or you don’t want it.”

“Susan & Herb, I just came from checking the Field house and I have a square cloth handkerchief (white w/ black) that was left on the kitchen island.

PizzaGate Is A Giant Step For Investigative Journalism By Yoichi Shimatsu A Rense Exclusive 12-9-16
... here's an email from a staffer at the Sandler Foundation to John Podesta, who dropped something from his back pocket:
"Hi, John. The realtor found a handkerchief. I think it has a map that seems pizza-related. Is it yours? They can send it if you want. I know you’re busy so feel free not to respond if it's not yours or you don't want it.”
Podesta replied: “It's mine.”
How can anyone ever eat pizza again?
Just when it looked like investigative journalism was dead and buried, there came along PizzaGate, which is busting open a new era of cyber-sleuthing to expose and take down once-untouchable criminals in high office. This most heartening rebirth, with the surge by a vigilant posse of blogs and websites, is accomplishing what the late Aaron Swartz of reddit (prior to its new role as self-appointed censor) was attempting before he was cut down in his tracks with an “assisted suicide” ordered by murderous pedophiles.

The damning evidence gathered so far against the powerful Podesta brothers, who ran the Hillary for America campaign and served as advisers to Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton is crucial to demolishing the corrupt and unrepresentative Democratic National Committee and its bedfellows among so-called establishment Republicans. The foolhardy response of those high-level felons is to order an illegal cover-up and unconstitutional crackdown by America’s law-enforcement agencies, intelligence bureaus and NATO allies with the pretext of combating “fake news.”

Caught with their pants down, the panicked perverts in power, from the Bilderbergers who denied association with pimp Marc Dutroux to the predators of the Franklin child-abuse scandal, now dare to accuse truth-tellers of running “fake news” in a lame attempt to scare off angry fathers who want answers to why missing kids are outnumbering milk cartons at the supermarket. The next line of defense for the cowardly political class is to plant cookies from their own hastily assembled fake sites as if their crumbs are IEDs.

None of those namby-pamby tactics, like speaking in code words derived from pizza terminology, have deterred the online anti-pedophile crusaders, so the idiotic clandestine-ops bosses had to stage a phony lone-gunman attack on Comet Ping Pong Pizza. The assailant turned out to be an unemployed movie actor-writer named Edgar Madisson Welch, who previously appeared in the horror movie “The Bleeding” and worked as go-fer for “A Tale about Bootlegging”. This pathetic a ploy is yet another waste of newsprint and taxpayers’ money.

The trans-Atlantic war on “fake news”, as documented on the European side of the pond by Thierry Meyssan of Voltaire network, had to have been ordered by the Office of the President or it simply wouldn’t be involving NATO command, which has nothing better to do, for example, fighting the cutthroats of ISIS.

Instead of being the Mini-me of that criminal dictator Suharto from your Indonesian boyhood days, Barry, grow up and act like a real man for once in your life. And get ready for more stench out of the overflowing the sewer pipe, you own next time. Instead of trying to plug the streaming flow of facts, you’d better prepare for a safe retirement where you can feel at home, somewhere like Kenya. Never mind trying to protect Hillary and the Podestas, because they smoked their own chicken at Cheryl Mills’ Moloch Barbecue.

That White House email, now available for all to see at Wikileaks, promised Hillary Clinton a sacrifice to that ancient Canaanite idol, knowing full well that it’s not KFC and that the bull-headed demon demands burnt offerings with a child sacrifice. In this case, it may not be a metaphor, as will be explored later in this essay.

Scotland Yard stares across the Atlantic .....
