"adrenochrome"

This is the name of the drug Q-Anon fans claim is extracted from tortured children and taken by Democrats and Hollywood actors.

There is a real molecule called adrenochrome. It is oxidised adrenaline and was used to form blood clots.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adrenochrome

However the Q-Anon story claiming it is a recreational drug was actually stolen from the Terry Gilliam comedy movie "Fear and Loathing in Los Vegas" (1998)

Here is the clip where Johnny Depp takes "adrenochrome"

The larger problem of course with Q-idiots invoking Jeffrey Epstein as some kind of corroboration of QAnon's credibility, is the inconvenient fact that Epstein and Maxwell were friends of Donald Trump and patrons of his private club in Florida, and there's plenty of documentation to support this. Not only that, but when Epstein was originally "caught", he was let off the hook by a federal prosecutor that Trump later personally selected for a Cabinet position.

But even if we're willing to ignore all of that, Epstein still does not actually represent the kind of pedophile that QAnon claims the Democrat "elites" are. Epstein was a pimp, he essentially ran a brothel service; and although he trafficked underage girls, these kids were all mid-to-late teens - definitely not the sort of young children that QAnons claim are being kidnapped by the hundreds-to-thousands and held beneath Comet Ping Pong, or that they say there's a video tape of Hillary Clinton murdering and drinking blood from for instance. None of Epstein's victims claim that he or any of his clients engaged in "satanic rituals" while abusing them; none of them claim that they were kept chained in basements or secret underground bases; none of them have ever claimed that Epstein or his clients would "scare" them and then extract blood from them. Epstein is exactly the wrong kind of pedophile to use as an example of QAnon being "onto something".

She didn't. Maxwell and Stuart Beck represented a charity, the TerraMar (ocean environment lobby group) at the UNOP (Sustainable Development Goals)

The charity has now been wound up. It never actually did anything.

Great movie. Benicio del Toro doesn't get anywhere near enough recognition for his performance.

Whatever, do go on asking your silly question, as for you, it beats watching an investigation of David Brock's boyfriend, Hillary's pal, and Podesta's pal, Comet Ping Pong's owner James Alefantis, and seeing his connections to various pedos.

Hey just because he surrounds himself with pedos, and has them entertaining children at his Comet Ping Pong Pizza Parlor, it doesnt make defending him by asking silly basement questions a silly response.

and she wasnt in pics with prince andrew, bill clinton etc.

If you think it is ridiculous to say that child traffickers are not connected to people in highest positions, then explain why Ghislane Maxwell spoke before the U.N. nine times, and is in pics with and connected to the likes of bill clinton, prince andrew and others.

be sure and quibble with defining "U.N."

That's the weirdest part; this drug they claim has to be extracted from the blood of children is actually one of the cheapest and most widely-synthesized drugs known to man. Adrenaline is easily lab-made and is available world-wide for pennies, a practically unlimited supply of it exists.

But, a medical conspiracy theory doesn't have to make actual medical sense, I suppose. Q idiots aren't exactly wizards at biological science generally.

By "etc" and "and others", he means Donald Trump; but he's not allowed to say that, because Donald Trump is a good guy, and admitting that good guys can have taken pics with Ghislane Maxwell is admitting that appearing in a photo with Ghislane Maxwell isn't evidence that someone is a Satanic pedo-vampire.

Then perhaps you could explain how someone could be sexually assaulted in the basement of a building that doesn't have a basement.

How odd. You'd think that, as this is one of the most widely-known of the paedophile ring allegations, that Trump would have been all over this.
Why did Trump not investigate Pizzagate, then?

Your opinions have earned a new adjective: perversarian. Trump is a hero, lefties want to preserve the racial divide -- it's as if you want to explore the limits of how absurdly wrong you can be.

That's a lie. It just didn't take long to see how utterly baseless it was.

Q-nuttery doesn't work without lies, baseless assertions, unevidenced allegations, and disgusting character assassinations. Oh yeah, it also requires credules, of which we can plainly observe are in no short supply.

Hey maybe he's trying to set himself up (if Trump wins) to be head of the new 'Big Department of Real Qanon Information' that will be needed if that happens.

Illinois Rep Adam Kinzinger reposted the very first "Q drop" this weekend. It's worth remembering that, in addition to the dozens of times they have been wrong since then, way back in October of 2017 this was the line - also referred to as "Mockingbird" 10.30.17:

Originally Posted by first q drop comment 2

One of the news networks interviewed a Q person and asked about Hillary being in jail and speaking at the DNC (and also dining out at restaurants, and being spotted hiking), and the Q person seemed to think that it could have been done with a green screen or whatever.

The classic term for this is "doublethink", but even that requires twice as much thinking as QAnons are comfortable with.

And did they explain why on Earth would Trump & Co, having arrested Hillary Clinton for being a pedo-vampire, arrange a green-screen studio in her prison so that she can appear to not be arrested and give an anti-Trump speech for the DNC convention?

To avoid viewing an actual investigation, all the pseudo skeptics need do is to focus on someone's mistaken belief in a nonexistent basement.

Or falsely claim there was an investigation. Sympathetic leftwing media friends interviewing Alefantis is a cover up, not an investigation.

For the first time AFAIK, James Alefantis is actually investigated by the guy in the video.

Fake skeptics will avoid every fact in the video in order to cling desperately to their claim the FBI document was never on the FBI website.

It's actually originally from the book Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas where Hunter Thompson claims it can only be extracted from the adrenal glands of living people.

Clearly just some nuttery he added to the book, not meant to be taken seriously.

LOL, an investigation of what? A rumor that there's a child-dungeon in the basement of a pizza parlor that doesn't have a basement? Your delusion that if someone who owns a pizza parlor mentions bringing pizza in an email exchange about plans for a party they're really talking in "secret code" about child-slaves?

The nonexistent basement under the pizza parlor wasn't just some "mistaken belief" on the part of one person. It was the central setting of the whole PIZZAgate fairy tale. If there was no basement full of victims - if you determine that the alleged crime would've been physically impossible to commit because the crime scene itself factually doesn't exist, what's left to "investigate"?

And that is the other biggest failure of pizzagate aside from its nonexistent crime scene, is the lack of actual victims. If I call the police on my neighbor saying that I suspect for x, y, and z reasons that he is abusing his 10-year-old daughter - see, there's an actual alleged victim there. A real 10-year-old girl with a name and a verifiable existence, who might be getting hurt; without one of those, there's not really a crime to investigate. I can perhaps extend this requirement to police officers posing as children in order to ascertain intent - but pizzagate doesn't even have that. Pizzagate's victims are nothing but MacGuffins; nameless, faceless "children" of indeterminate age and number, as many as the conspiracy theorists want to exist. They have no origin - "kidnapped" from nowhere in particular, conveniently reported missing by no one. Maybe police would've had a little something to go on if the pizzagate morons had identified an actual known-missing child that was supposedly being kept in the dungeon.

OK, I watched some of the movie.

Here's the gist from a couple of posters on AR15

https://www.ar15.com/forums/general/...318152/&page=3

Quote:
No, I'm saying he's retarded. You can tell because I said he was retarded, not that he was a liar. I'm sure he did find topless pictures of children, and I'm equally sure that it's not because he stumbled upon a conspiracy where one of the largest underwear and swimwear manufacturers in Europe is producing kiddie porn locatable through Google.

I'll explain, because I'm sure someone will ask. Googling BH kids brings up pictures of a girl in a bra because BH means bra. Clicking on that picture (from a website selling kids bras) brings up related pictures, which are of course also of children in underwear and swimsuits. Clicking through these pictures in the right order brings you to a picture of a girl wearing only briefs, or topless. It's from a European website selling girls swimsuits, which are divided into three categories: one pieces, bikinis, and briefs. They sell swimsuits like this because in some European countries it's common for pre pubescent girls to go to the beach wearing only briefs. We only perceive it as child porn because of our cultural attitudes; it was intended as an innocent advertisement for a country with different cultural attitudes.

Anticipating the next question: 'Why does BH kids appear in a video on youtube if BH means bra?' Because BH only means bra in some countries.

Then I got to the Obama/bourdain eating in Vietnam and the dude googles the “no smoke drug” (Literal Vietnamese translation) sign behind them and is off linking them to pedos. Also the google Search to get the pedo pics of that website isn’t some nefarious secret password, it’s that google did it’s job and crawled the website entirely and indexed those pages. The web dev of the site setup some category in their management system with all these pics and likely didn’t intend for them to be linked to or Indexed. If a secret pedo cabal wanted to share pics, they’d use at the minimum a passworded website, not google images.

Or falsely claim there was an investigation. Sympathetic leftwing media friends interviewing Alefantis is a cover up, not an investigation.

For the first time AFAIK, James Alefantis is actually investigated by the guy in the video.

Fake skeptics will avoid every fact in the video in order to cling desperately to their claim the FBI document was never on the FBI website.
Can you establish that any of the people you have mentioned besides Maxwell and Epstein have engaged in sexual acts with children that would constitute a crime in any state or federal jurisdiction?

Roughly as much as it was established before the trials/proceedings, that that any of the 80+ democrat and republican child predators recently convicted had " engaged in sexual acts with children that would constitute a crime in any state or federal jurisdiction"

"Woefully underinformed" comes to mind. And willfully ignorant as well, as in cherry picking.

Its about the connected people, the social posts and tags etc.

Example: Not directly related, but the reason Christy Tiegen deleted hundreds (or thousands) of her old tweets could teach something to those Topic Masters with open minds, willing to learn.

Its not about a pizza shop with a nonexistent basement. Of course you and the friendly media, as always, focus on nonsense, rather than seriously looking into it. That ABC guy, Ben something, was the only TV guy to actually do an investigative report, but he did not track Alefantis' friends (cumbucket) and social media fingerprints.

The nonexistent basement under the pizza parlor wasn't just some "mistaken belief" on the part of one person. It was the central setting of the whole PIZZAgate fairy tale. If there was no basement full of victims - if you determine that the alleged crime would've been physically impossible to commit because the crime scene itself factually doesn't exist, what's left to "investigate"?

And that is the other biggest failure of pizzagate aside from its nonexistent crime scene, is the lack of actual victims. If I call the police on my neighbor saying that I suspect for x, y, and z reasons that he is abusing his 10-year-old daughter - see, there's an actual alleged victim there. A real 10-year-old girl with a name and a verifiable existence, who might be getting hurt; without one of those, there's not really a crime to investigate. I can perhaps extend this requirement to police officers posing as children in order to ascertain intent - but pizzagate doesn't even have that. Pizzagate's victims are nothing but MacGuffins; nameless, faceless "children" of indeterminate age and number, as many as the conspiracy theorists want to exist. They have no origin - "kidnapped" from nowhere in particular, conveniently reported missing by no one. Maybe police would've had a little something to go on if the pizzagate morons had identified an actual known-missing child that was supposedly being kept in the dungeon.

AFAIK, that ABC guy, Ben something, was the only TV guy to do actual investigative reporting on Comet Ping Pong, but he did not think to track Alefantis' friends, such as 'cumbucket', and 'chickenlover' by following their social media fingerprints.

I see. So you now agree that there is no basement under Comet Pizza but tell us that there is a basement (child torture shelter) under the Whitehouse.

So you are now directly accusing Trump of being the paedophile ring leader.

Looks like it is 87. I searched some, they were true. Some of the anti pedo researchers are careful about their fats.
