Crackpot "Pizzagate" Tale Promoted By Michael G. Flynn Almost Led To D.C. Tragedy


"Doh! I know Pizzagate true because a real general did tweet it!"

I want to begin by knocking out the crappola bilge that off the wall, wild claims qualify as "conspiracy theories". No, they do not. They are pure unadulterated bullshit that no rational mind ought to entertain.. That includes the "Jade Helm" nonsense about the military taking over TX, as well as assorted other claptrap - including that the feds are "buying up all the ammo" to deny 2nd amendment rights, and especially the noxious waste "Pizzagate" - which reared its ugly head again over the weekend.    All of these are what I refer to as debased mind viruses or mental infections. The origin of mind viruses can be traced specifically to the chapter, 'The Kingdom and the Darkness' in the book, Chance and Necessity' by Biochemist Jacques Monod (Collins Books, UK, 1970)

Monod portrayed the spread of inherently primitive, anti-human and perverse ideas, to a kind of mind-to -mind infection. Hence the later coined term, "mind virus".  That is what "Pizzagate" is, not a conspiracy theory and certainly not even a conspiracy hypothesis.

I had no idea, zero, what "Pizzagate" was until watching yesterday evening's lead news story about a brain-jacked lunatic - Edgar Welch- who drove 9 hours from North Carolina to try to "free" child sex slaves at a D.C. restaurant called Comet Ping Pong . Evidently, this insane, insipid mind virus has been circulating on the web since the end of October. It has been traced to a lunatic named Michael G. Flynn, the son of Michael T. Flynn - actually tipped to be Donald Dump's national security advisor - if you can believe it.

As one writer on The UK Guardian put it:

"In any other year a story like 'Pizzagate'  would get you laughed out of a room. The conspiracy theory that Hillary Clinton was part of a sex-trafficking ring run out of a pizza shop is bizarre and disturbing from start to finish.  But in 2016, a year when nothing makes any sense any more, it can be cited as a motive for a crime".

Before viewing the news segment, I got a heads up on the cockamamey BS circulated online by the American Right after reading an op-ed by Richard Thieme in The Milwaukee Journal -Sentinel in which Thieme wrote:

"I was asked to submit a bio to a local group as a possible speaker. My topics were misunderstood, distorted by the framework through which the contact for the group read them, and he sent an email defining the speech he hoped I could produce:

' ... it would be fantastic to have a ‘dream speaker’ that could link the topics of the Power-Elite, Occult ritual, who’s teaching them how to do this, why they are doing it, pedophilia, bohemian grove, Eyes Wide Shut parties, the Clintons, technocratic globalism, child trafficking, mainstream media, mainstream entertainers/Hollywood, Alien/UFO government mythology, Lolita Island, War, Alister Crowley followers, state-sponsored assassinations, CIA, FBI and much much more. ... a speaker who can skillfully link all of these dark connections in an eloquent, matter-of-fact way.'

The email provided a link to a video in which three men discussed all this and more in sensational unsupported terms and added satanic ritual, cannibalism, and child rape to the antics of the power elite, crimes that are unreported by “the media” because publishers are at those parties, participating in rape and human sacrifice, hence unwilling to tell the truth about them.

That group is a mainstream group. That video has more than half a million hits. That absurd narrative collects unthinking people into a homogeneous group, which by repetition reinforces the credibility of their assertions. In a similar vein, I am sometimes asked after speeches if I believe we went to the moon or have rovers on Mars."

I then did a follow-up Google search after watching the news yesterday evening and learned "Pizzagate" is a whackadoodle patch of nonsense  launched by Michael G. Flynn as well his crackpot  old man. . I am not going to dignify this pile of horse shit by repeating it in any detail, only to say it was confected by morons with too much time on their hands  - with the same reptile brain features as conspiracy lunatic Alex Jones, e.g.
Image result for alex jones

It basically was assembled from a host of disparate incidents, events including photos of NYPD officers hauling supposed bags with email evidence out of a residence, speculation about Anthony Weiner and his sexting propensity and the presence of some Hillary emails left on his computer, by wife and HRC aide Huma Abedin. Supposedly all this in tandem with a paranoid schizophrenic's claim about :Hillary's "predilection for underage children".  Add in the phenomenon of stupid repetition and 'Voila!' - millions of idiots gobble this fake news like it's the real thing.

As one skeptic website (inverse.com) already noted, the Comet pizza place where all the horrific acts were supposedly taking place didn't even have a freaking basement!

Never mind, the hijacked brains invested in this bullshit are 100 percent convinced  they are really global citizens conducting a "worldwide citizen investigation" to rout the evil motherfuckers and elites behind it. Puh-leeze, get a life already, Sparky!   The kicker in all this is Michael G. Flynn's assertion in one tweet that:

"Until Pizzagate proven to be false, it'll remain a story."

Uh no, laddie. See you have it ass-backwards. It is logically impossible, indeed futile - to prove a negative. Tell me that 6 inch Martians are building tiny canals on Mars right now and it is my job to "disprove it" - and I will refer you to the nearest psych ward that offers ECT. That's not the way proof and disproof work - at least for those of us in touch with reality. (And as one who likely now faces metastatic prostate cancer - based on results from a new genetic test-  that's as grounded in reality as it gets. I don't have the time to indulge in half -assed bullshit circulated by clueless  screwballs).

No, the way it works is you proffer the claim and then you cite the evidence to support the claim. If you can't outright prove your contention you are at least charged with providing high QA support by way of documents, evidence. Oh, and that doesn't include photo-shopped images or edited videos that are a farce.

Daddy (Michael T.) Flynn isn't much better, tweeting 6 days before the election:

"U decide. NYPD Blows Whistle on New Hillary Emails. Money Laundering. Sex Crimes w. Children etc."

In fact, the FBI blew no such "whistle" instead admitting they had nothing, nada and basically jumped the gun in trying to tie the emails found on Anthony Weiner's computer to any nefarious deeds.  The real question, of what "U ought to decide" - is whether an unstable crackpot lunatic like this belongs anywhere near the seat of executive power. If he can make up bullshit like this what sort of bunkum might he confect - involving the Chinese- say to try to get Donald Dump to launch a missile attack on the Spratly Islands?  You tell me. Personally, I wouldn't trust this deranged imp or his son to even take the nuclear football to an NSA meeting.

When one speaks of a "theory" he at least means something with a residue of rationality, consistent explication and sense, even if later proven wrong. But these noxious tweets spouted by the Flynns and their supporters are straight out of Kook-land. The email cited by Richard Thieme (blue highlighted) above. "Power elite occult rituals"? "Eyes wide shut parties?" "Lolita Island"? These are the stuff of seriously disturbed paranoid fantasies which no one of any intelligence, mental stability or common sense ought to be feeding his neurons. 

A warning ought to be attached: "This balderdash is harmful to your mental health".  As it certainly turned out to be for the sorry Edgar Welch, who now faces an insecure physical future too after firing a round from his AR-15 into the Comet Ping Pong floor after realizing the fake news of "Pizzagate" had mind- fucked him. But too late! He'd driven nine hours to make a point that ended up being empty with him holding the bag....errr....gun....thanks to buying into the Pizzagate crap.

As I noted in my October 28 post ('Separating Paranoid Balderdash from Rational Conspiracy Thinking'), "Pizzagate" and other cockeyed nonsense like Alex Jones' claim that Newtown was a "false flag" are the stuff of an irrational, indiscriminate, paranoid culture not a serious conspiracy research community (such as one finds with most who investigate the JFK assassination-  supported by actual physics).  

In the same post I cited Barbadian psychologist Pat Bannister who envisaged the latter as the province of mature, rational, educated adults. The former, on the other hand,  constituted  the realm of the semi-literate or poorly educated who fancied themselves adults but really weren't.   They were more like overgrown children playing elaborate paranoid games. Irrationalists like the indiscriminate conspiracy monger, Alex Jones and yes, his lunatics. in arms, Michael G. and Michael T. Flynn.

Will the Pizzagate insanity stop now that Welch himself has essentially verified it's horse shit? Not bloody likely, because - as my spiritually inclined sister-in-law Krimhilde has aptly put it - some people will always feed their minds with the basest material.  As she told me when I last spoke with her in May of this year:

"Attraction of so many to porn, debased stories, gossip and lies is the outcome when we accept only the animal level mind and refuse to rise above it. Our politicians and leaders must seek to rise above this degraded low vibration mind and listen more to the higher Voice within, The still, small voice that beseeches each of us to embrace truth, to follow it....not lies"

While I don't necessarily agree with all her spiritual analogies and turns of phrase, I do think she is on to something. That also means that wretched and debased muck like Pizzagate will continue making the rounds on the net until people become  "the sentinels at watch at the front gates of their minds" - to use my late father-in-law's phrasing. (From Science of Mind)  In other words, people have to take ownership for what they themselves put into their minds, recognizing  "garbage in, garbage out".  We can blame the sources themselves up to a point but ultimately we choose what we will accept and reject. If we accept tawdry, unsupported and degraded filth then that is what our minds will reflect. And sadly, that filth will eventually resonate in our very personality and being - limiting and defining all future perceptions, choices.

Richard Thieme's ending words also ring out:

"The inability to discriminate between plausible and crazy plus the impossibility of knowing what’s real in this perpetual fog of information warfare causes anxiety and fear, which people counter with narratives to comfort the afflicted soul. Then it’s called “truth.” When we feel helpless and lacking control over our lives, we project impossible narratives onto fragmented data and comfort ourselves with theories which, if examined closely, would be seen to be foolish"

And to quote from the Uk Guardian author:

"Pizzagate is a lie but what it says about our society is real"

Sadly, the Trump voters have foisted upon us a cabal with only the most degenerate and degraded notions to offer up for consumption. A toxic mental cocktail of perverse ideation that has created an alternative degenerate mind virus "reality".  Since two realities cannot co-exist and lead to a stable union - say for a  nation - it means we are all for the high jump now unless these purveyors of lies are finally shut out of their efforts to seize power. That means we need dozens of state electors - mainly in Trump taken states- to turn the tables on December 19th and choose to be faithless electors.
