I admit these pictures are quite unsettling... why would one want to hang this in their bedroom wall...

Who's bedroom wall are these framed on? I thought Tony Podessa was just friends with the artist who painted these?

By the same artist as these:

https://dcpizzagate.files.wordpress....6&h=598&crop=1
Indeed, that appears to be some weird art. And under the "Friends" section of the Comet Ping Pong website, click the first link and you'll find some weird, crazy artwork for the website of the band Heavy Breathing. Click a few more and you might find a link to some art galleries.

The management of Comet Ping Pong happen to be friends with artists. Artists can create some pretty bizarre, morbid, twisted artwork while otherwise being normal, friendly people.

No, it's deadly serious. It's veeery suspect, and we all know what it means. But I would not want to draw any conclusions from that... Just pointing out 'weird' things, so don't you dare hold me accountable for anything I post.

There seems to be something "horrifying" in their bedroom walls:

"Folks attending a house tour in the Lake Barcroft neighborhood in Falls Church earlier this year got an eyeful when they walked into a bedroom at the Podesta residence hung with multiple color pictures by Katy Grannan, a photographer known for documentary-style pictures of naked teenagers in their parents' suburban homes.
"They were horrified," Heather recalls, a grin spreading across her face."

You donīt seem to understant CT-s. You can draw any conclusions you want. Just pointing our that something is weird is rather meaningles. And if you tell me that I just did that, in my earlier post about Breitbartīs tweet, I think in that case the conclusion, or the context is quite obvious, isnīt it?

Depending what you mean by "exposed". For example, Gladio was written about about before it was proven. For example: Daniele Ganser wrote about it with great detail, claims that were denied by the CIA. I guess Daniele would have been widely dismissed and belittled as a conspiracionist in this forum, if he came to discuss his "theories". But he was proven right.

Mr. Ganser is a historian.
Definitely falls in the professional investigator category.

Yes, the conclusion being that you're either being hypocritical, or a conspiracy theorist.

Yet he was dismissed as a conspiracy theorist, and would be still, if the Italian Government hadnīt confirmed the existence of Gladio and their involvement in false flag operations etc.

You guys sound like a bunch of conspiranoiacs, seeing strange intentions in my words... you should have it looked at.

I only intended to discuss the issue of "pizzagate", I neither believe not flatly deny it. "Pedocracy" has been an ongoing CT for years in many places. There are credible indications of the existence of cover-ups in Spain (Alcasser), Belgium (Dutroux) and the UK (the lost Westminster files). Whether these cover-ups just attempted to hide police ****-ups or something more sinister, it belongs to the realm of speculation, of which Iīm unashamedly fond of. You donīt really need to repeat and repeat that itīs unproven, thatīs just boring.

Paedophile "rings" exist, apparently. The possibility that one of such "rings" has entrenched itself in a position of power should not be as far-fetched as some of you make it seem... "Eyes wide shut" was complete fiction or is it based on something real? And what if instead of plain "boring" sex some secret elite clubs had more sadistic habits?

Don't you, though? You've been trying very hard to find "weird" artwork in the pizza shop, as if that somehow gives credence to the theory. You're obviously leaning towards the "believe" side, but making sure you have plausible deniability.

Yes, and the best way to find them ISN'T looking at the wallpaper.

I'm just starting to read this thread but...
If I tweeted that exact same tweet but used "Abooga" (or your real name) in place of Podesta's, would you expect people to draw that same conclusion about you automatically?

I refer to that type of action as "Nessmanism" (WKRP in Cincinnati)

Yes, yes we do need to repeat it. This type of corrosive speculation is what drives false news. YOU are contributing to misinformation, are you happy about that?

The discovery of which, and exposing of which, are best left to professional investigators, not untrained, uneducated, speculation driven internet snoops.

The possibility that one of such "rings" has entrenched itself in a position of power should not be as far-fetched as some of you make it seem...
Who says it's far fetched? I believe what others are saying is that your speculations and the supposed evidence of the particular alleged rings you are concerned about is far fetched. Don't try to falsely conflate a general statement and your specific pet theories.

"Eyes wide shut" was complete fiction or is it based on something real? And what if instead of plain "boring" sex some secret elite clubs had more sadistic habits?
Was "The Matrix" complete fiction, or is it based on something real? And what if red and blue pills DO exist?

Oh, yes, the artwork,

What could those antler-like things be in the picture? Why is one holding a head? In the other artworks of the same artist, made in the same style, other "severed heads" appear, in connection to apparent rituals/mating with demons.. whatever you want to call it.
Antlers appear in other places too


Related to the occult, apparently.

Art represents feelings as much as it does objects and concepts. Antlers could represent anything from some visual pun to occult beliefs of the artist to simply them thinking they would look cool.

I like how it doesn't mention what the pictures were.

"Residents looked over and saw Mary Smith, known for having sex, and were horrified"

Yes, yes we do need to repeat it. This type of corrosive speculation is what drives false news. YOU are contributing to misinformation, are you happy about that?
Iīm not. I havenīt invented anything so I donīt have any responsability respect to "false news" (a dangerous concept, anyway... who says what is false news and what is true? Are we to allow the censure of news that some authority considers false?)

I never said proffesional investigators shouldnīt investigate. They are very welcome to.
