A Democratic Party connected pizza restaurant, which just happens to be run by a gay man, is under siege from right-wing extremists, and even Alex Jones has tried to distance himself from the more obvious bullshit (after promoting it in the first place).

The alleged child sex ring run out of a DC pizza parlor, “#pizzagate,” has been debunked repeatedly, but that doesn’t matter to a whole lot of post-truth personalities you’ll run across on Facebook. A Youtube rumor mill churns out twists and turns daily, and these obvious propaganda pieces get re-posted unquestioningly. Lies always outpace the truth.

I’ve blocked several people whom I’m not sure genuinely believe what they’re posting. Some do, and that’s just as problematic. Snopes has a pretty good summation of this fiasco to date.

Now that assault-rifle-wielding vigilantes have taken up the cause we had all better take a step back and consider where we are as a nation. Most Americans believe mountains of bullshit all the time. And I do mean you, the reader. With the corporate media’s credibility at all-time lows the information void has been filled by trolls, scammers, political dirty tricksters, and all other varieties of dark intelligence type mercenaries. Much of what comes across the feeds is wholesale bullshit deliberately fabricated to push buttons.

What’s most damaging about all this is that it erodes the truth, making it more difficult to find or to care about. The noise barrage prompts apathy among the many and insane overreactions within a few.

There are real conspiracies. Powerful people do commit crimes, lots of them. They are not, however, so inept and incompetent about it to be running child sex slave rings out of pizzarias! To believe such nonsense requires a level of gullibility that is shocking. It requires one to be divorced from reality, living in a TV type world where such crimes are easily perpetrated and plot holes don’t matter. And neither does credible evidence.

Things have become more dire, news wise, with the recent hysteria over alleged Russian propaganda. Similarly debunked claims of Russian state involvement were sanctioned by the Washington Post. Evidence, of Russian connections to US independent media, is non-existent. Specious fake journalism appeared right in the supposed bastion of truth, where the US government routinely proclaims its objectives and floats its excuses. There is no shortage of “fake news” to rail against.

The #pizzagate fiasco was clearly the work of Trump supporters acting anonymously to drum up a hot-button smear against Hillary Clinton, just prior to Election Day. But the mainstream media has taken up the banner to try and assail all alternative news sources–alternative to them–their direct competitors. With this new escalation into the realm of vigilante violence, and with the multitude of hate crimes witnessed since the election, the country teeters in a state of trepidation over what will come next when Trump takes over.

But #pizzagate is not over yet. We still have the unfortunate business of Jeffrey Epstein to contend with.

“Epstein, who counts among his pals royal figures, heads of state, celebrities and fellow billionaires, spent 13 months in prison and home detention for solicitation and procurement of minors for prostitution. He allegedly had a team of traffickers who procured girls as young as 12 to service his friends on ‘Orgy Island,’ an estate on Epstein’s 72-acre island, called Little St. James, in the U.S. Virgin Islands.” (“Flight logs show Bill Clinton flew on sex offender’s jet much more than previously known”, Fox News, May 13, 2016)

And it’s not just right-wing sources reporting on Epstein. Says The Daily Beast:

“Epstein’s little black book and flight logs read like a virtual Who’s Who: Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, Larry Summers, Kevin Spacey, Prince Andrew, and Naomi Campbell all hitched rides on Epstein’s private planes… In 2008, Epstein was convicted of soliciting sex from an underage girl and quietly paid settlements to scores of alleged victims who said he serially molested them… Epstein had 14 private numbers for Trump and his family in his little black book. Meanwhile, Bill and Hillary Clinton have remained mum about their ties to the Palm Beach pedophile—despite evidence that shows Bill was one of the most famous and frequent passengers on Epstein’s‘Lolita Express’ and that Epstein donated money to the Clinton Foundation even after his conviction.”

 

I am reminded of Sibel Edmonds’ take on the elites and how politicians are vetted to insure they do have skeletons in their closets, so that they can be controlled by the Deep State. All of these crimes are known to intelligence at the highest levels, and that is why these people are allowed to rise into positions of power. It is expressly because they have dark secrets that these individuals become our so-called “leaders.”

We can see why the trolls wanted to limit the pedophilia charges to a Democrat friendly pizza parlor in D.C., now that Donald Trump himself has been connected to Jeffrey Epstein’s “Lolita Express.” The hysteria was carefully focused and localized, no matter how glaringly false it happened to be.

Don’t look for Alex Jones to pursue Donald Trump’s link to Epstein, however. He’s already been busy attempting to deflect the charges. Don’t look for that link to go wider among the right-wing trolls, even though the President-Elect has been exposed exactly as Bill Clinton was. The right cares nothing for reality, but instead creates a false reality daily to suit their political ambitions. It is a lust for power, not for justice.

How to Spot a Shill in Eight Easy Steps
In the Bernie campaign, it was the idea of “inevitability” that was used to puncture the enthusiasm of Berners. According to “Confessions of a Hillary Shill” on reddit, the hammering of the word “inevitable” in relation to Hillary was a totally deliberate construct of the PR firm employing the shills.
Hey – how do you know I’m not a shill?

Because I have thousands of posts right here, consistent, public, searchable. And thousands elsewhere, all over the fucking net. That’s pretty hard to fake. It takes years and years.  I back up my statements with sources, something 95%+ of the public is too lazy or ignorant to bother about. I actually care about veracity and credibility.

I don’t lose debates.

Pseudoscience & the “study” of “conspiracy beliefs” from message board postings
An open letter to Michael J. Wood et al.

mw337@kent.ac.uk

Regarding: “What about building 7?” A social psychological study of online discussion of 9/11 conspiracy theories

I read with some interest your “study” of some message board postings concerning the September 11th attacks. I found your efforts less than compelling. Random samplings of arguments on message boards are a legitimate way to understand the September 11th 2001 attacks? No. But it is a convenient way of lumping large disparate groups of people into simplistic categories in order to smear them.

As someone who has intensely studied the issue for some 13 years and counting, I would have to say that your approach is hamfisted, ignorant, and even juvenile. You and your partners have relied upon your own concepts of “belief” and “theory” and the utterances of message board posters, but lack a firm foundation to compare or contrast any of the information that was analyzed.

In other words, you don’t have an expert knowledge of the US government cover-up of the September 11th event (or even acknowledge it), nor of the many high-level government whistleblowers surrounding this issue. You lack an even rudimentary understanding of the event, and therefore have no basis to judge the competing arguments, at all. Nor do you concede the obvious fact of conspiracies throughout history, actual state crimes, of which there are numerous examples. This would lead to an examination of motive, and that the state gains an incredible amount of power after failing to stop an attack, including the power to wage foreign wars of aggression with impunity.

You know: 1 + 1=2 type stuff.

It is not difficult to engage in a conspiracy. Any two individuals on planet earth can commit a crime together, and voila: there’s a conspiracy. The idea that conspiracy is rare or even non-existent(!), as some mainstream media pundits have argued, is absurd on its face and should discredit the author entirely. As an obvious example, you–as someone purportedly studying government conspiracy–should be well versed in the Iran-Contra fiasco of the 1980s. Colonel Oliver North was convicted, with ten others, to refresh your memory. So, is someone who “believes” in the Iran-Contra conspiracy more or less prone to “belief” in conspiracy, as per your definitions and comprehension?

Clearly we have a problem when you divide the public based upon generalizations that cannot possibly hold true when tested against real historical facts. The knowledge, or ignorance, of these facts is paramount.

So, Mr. Wood, did the Iran-Contra conspiracy happen? Are you a “conspiracist?” Do you engage in “belief” about it?

Next, your “psychological study” has not even a mention of the concept of disinformation. This omission discredits your work. Disinformation is the deliberate seeding of the public debate with false data in order to muddy the waters and make discovery of the true facts of the conspiracy more difficult. It throws off the dogs. Disinformation is rampant and easily achieved as soon as any individual concocts a false narrative and presses “send” or “post.” Apparently this has never occurred to your team, as it received zero scrutiny.

Some number of message board trolls will turn out to be posting disinformation, in my decade-plus experience with them, a situation your study failed to even conceptualize, nevermind correct for. Others post misinformation. This is the problem with relying upon message board flame wars for your data.

Therefore your study is tangential and irrelevant to learning what actually happened. Its approach reinforces the idea that psychological pseudoscience has relevance to the facts of real world crimes and terrorist events. It champions a specious view, one founded upon ignorance and random arguments over misinformation and disinformation, rather than seeking to understand what is actually known and what is unknown, to date, about the criminal attacks you purport to study.

Similarly your “study” commented on other controversial topics without any accompanying examination of something the rest of the world likes to call “evidence.” You and your cohorts feel supremely confident in pronouncing sweeping generalizations about “belief” without providing context as to why someone would hold such a belief (factual evidence). It is for this exact reason that I have labeled your efforts “pseudoscience.” You have divorced some abstract concept called “belief” from the hard evidence that causes such “belief.” Cause and effect are alien to your own theories, at least as presented in your “psychological study.” Your article ends up lightweight pondering and lacks the gravity of facts, or the due diligence required to examine and test those facts.

You have come to this party from ignorance, and you remain there, blissfully unaware of the veracity of any of the data, whatsoever. That’s a pretty harsh criticism, but is warranted.

PS.

Mr. Wood, was the September 11th attack not a “conspiracy?”
