SINGAPORE - Bank of Singapore, the private banking unit of OCBC Bank, has opened a branch in the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC).
Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Deputy Ruler of Dubai and president of Dubai International Financial Centre, officiated at the opening ceremony.
Bank of Singapore "seeks to usher in a new growth phase in its history in the Middle East" with the opening of this new office, it said in a statement.
The Middle East, specifically the UAE, has always been an integral part of our business. The setting up of this branch in DIFC further strengthens our franchise and commitment to serve the burgeoning population of ultra-high and high-net worth individuals in this region," said Bank of Singapore chief executive Bahren Shaari.
The branch is helmed by veteran banker Kirit Chauhan and supported by a team of 75 employees.
Bank of Singapore's presence in the Middle East goes back over 20 years. It opened its representative office in Dubai in 1996, before the DIFC was set up in 2004.

LOSS-BIT CREDIT SUISSE SAID TO BOOST ITS.....




Loss-hit Credit Suisse said to boost its Asia bankers' pay by up to 15%

HONG KONG (BLOOMBERG) - Credit Suisse Group raised some of its senior Asia-Pacific investment bankers' pay last year by as much as 15 per cent after the firm boosted advisory revenues in the region, according to people familiar with the matter.
Average total 2016 compensation, including bonuses, for high-performing managing directors at the bank was between US$1 million (S$1.42 million) to US$1.5 million, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the details are confidential. Analysts and associates focusing on the advisory and underwriting business in Asia on average received about a 20 per cent increase, they said.
Asia was a bright spot for the Zurich-based firm, which posted an overall annual loss of 2.4 billion francs (S$3.39 billion) after taking a charge to settle a US investigation into the role of its mortgage business in the 2008 financial crisis.
Net revenue of the bank's Asia-Pacific underwriting and advisory business climbed 38 per cent last year as clients stepped up merger, equity- and debt-capital market transactions, Credit Suisse reported on Tuesday.
For the fourth quarter, revenue at the Asia-Pacific advisory business jumped 44 per cent, compared with an overall 12 per cent drop in regional investment-banking revenue that was fueled by a slump in fixed-income sales and trading. The unit's performance may help insulate it from the up to 6,500 job cuts chief executive officer Tidjane Thiam is planning this year as he steps up cost reductions to boost profitability.
Thiam managed to lower Credit Suisse's compensation and benefits expenses by 8 per cent  last year, its earnings release showed. The cost reduction in Asia-Pacific investment banking was smaller at 2 per cent, as the bank hired more people for the advisory, underwriting and financing businesses, it said.
Some of the senior bankers' pay was left unchanged or they got increases lower than 15 per cent because of their high compensation base in 2015, the people said. Some of them got a performance-related reduction last year, they said.
The bank changed the structure of compensation for some of its senior London bankers, increasing fixed pay while eliminating the so-called allowances that have come under regulatory scrutiny, people familiar with the plan said in July.
Pay in the investment-banking industry has been under pressure as firms seek to lower expenses at a time when margins are being squeezed. Goldman Sachs Group didn't pay 2016 bonuses to about 100 bankers who advise on takeovers and underwrite securities offerings, as it penalized less productive workers to control overall compensation costs, according to people with knowledge of the matter.

 

BIG U.S.A BANKS TO PUSH FOR EASING OF.........


Big US banks to push for easing of money laundering rules 


A trade association representing the largest US banks have called for a revamp of how financial institutions investigate and report potential money laundering activity. PHOTO: BLOOMBERG 

WASHINGTON/NEW YORK (REUTERS) - America's largest banks are to propose a complete overhaul of how financial institutions investigate and report potential criminal activity, arguing that rules imposed in the years after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks and strengthened during the Obama administration are onerous and ineffective, sources said.
The Clearing House, a trade association representing the largest US banks including Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase and Bank of America, has long raised concerns about the effectiveness of the current rules, but this will be the first time the group has publicly called for them to be revamped.
The proposal, which could be published as soon as Thursday, will set the stage for an intensive lobbying effort targeting bank regulators and members of the Senate and House of Representatives finance committees. President Donald Trump has said he wants to cut costly regulations for Wall Street. 
To keep drug traffickers and terrorists from laundering money through the U.S. financial system, federal law mandates that bank employees file a Suspicious Activity Report (SAR) with authorities if they suspect transactions could be part of a crime.
Faced with record penalties in recent years over failures to alert authorities to criminal activities, banks say they now over-report, filing hundreds of thousands of SARs out of fear of later falling foul of regulators. "Now we tell banks to file a (report) on everything that might be criminal," said Gary Shiffman, CEO of compliance software maker Giant Oak. "But when everything is a priority nothing ends up being a priority."
The number of suspicious activity reports rose from 669,000 in 2013 to almost a million in 2016, according to US Treasury's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FINCEN), which enforces anti-money laundering rules and collects data on suspicious transactions from banks around the country.
Complying with anti-money laundering rules, including the manpower needed to file suspicious activity reports, costs US companies as much as US$8 billion (S$11.3 billion) a year, the Heritage Foundation estimated in a report last year.
The Clearing House will propose a new system under which banks do not investigate and report every transaction that could possibly raise a red flag, according to people involved in the effort.
Instead, banks would focus on investigating and reporting transactions based on specific concerns relayed to them by law enforcement. Under this approach, banks could shift their focus, as law enforcement priorities change.
Institutions in different parts of the country may also watch out for certain types of criminal transactions, based on information from authorities. For example, law enforcement could warn banks in the southwest of the United States to look out for drug traffickers moving funds to Mexico, according to people involved in drafting the proposal.
The Clearing House will also call for the creation of an information-sharing platform that would allow banks to share data among themselves about possible criminal transactions.
For international banks, the group will push for the US Treasury's FinCEN to be responsible for investigating compliance, rather than the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, a main bank regulator.
Since FinCEN is already responsible for sharing threat data with law enforcement agencies, the agency will be better able to determine if banks are making a substantial contribution to law enforcement efforts, the bank group will argue.
It remains to be seen what kind of reception such a proposal will get from US law enforcement officials and regulators, who have spent years learning how to turn SARs into leads for fruitful investigations.
A FinCEN spokesman pointed out dozens of criminal cases made with the help of SARs listed on the agency's website. The spokesman said the agency is unable to collect comprehensive statistics on how often SARs lead to successful prosecutions.
Even if controls were loosened at the federal level, state regulators such as the New York Department of Financial Services may not let banks alter course. Just last month, the New York regulator imposed a new anti-terrorism regulation requiring banks to beef up suspicious activity reporting.
The New York regulator declined to comment for this story.
Representatives of Bank of America, Goldman Sachs and Citigroup also declined to comment.
Critics say banks have only themselves to blame for greater scrutiny of the sector. In 2012, HSBC agreed to pay US$1.9 billion in U.S. fines for failing to prevent money laundering violations by Mexican drug traffickers. In 2014, JPMorgan agreed to pay US$2.6 billion over allegations it failed to tell authorities about its suspicions of fraud at Bernie Madoff's fund.
The bank lobby waited for Trump to take office in the hope that a new administration will see the money laundering regulations through "a new set of eyes," said one person involved in writing the proposal.
Watchdog groups balk at the idea that the regulations could be loosened in any way. "I have concerns with the banks even doing what they are supposed to do now," said Heather Lowe, director of government affairs at Global Financial Integrity, an organization that pushes for stricter anti-money laundering enforcement.

SECRET AGENTS USED LAW FIRM MOSSACK.........


Panama Papers: Secret agents used law firm Mossack Fonseca to hide activities

BERLIN (AFP) - Secret agents from several countries, including intermediaries of the CIA, have used the services of Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca in order to "conceal" their activities, German newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung reported on Tuesday (April 12).
"Secret agents and their informants have made wide use of the company's services," wrote the newspaper, which obtained a massive stash of 11.5 million documents from the company that is sending shockwaves around the globe.
"Agents have opened shell companies to conceal their activities... Among them are close intermediaries of the CIA," the newspaper reported. 
The Munich-based newspaper said Mossack Fonseca's clients included "several players" in the 1980s Iran-Contra scandal, which saw senior US officials facilitate secret arms sales to Iran in a bid to secure the release of American hostages and fund Nicaragua's Contra rebels.
The Panama Papers also reveal that "current or former high-ranking officials of the secret services of at least three countries... Saudi Arabia, Colombia and Rwanda" are listed among the company's clients, the Sueddeutsche said.
Among them was Sheikh Kamal Adham, the former Saudi intelligence chief who died in 1999. He "spent the 1970s as one of the CIA's key intermediaries" in the Middle East, the daily said.
The Sueddeutsche Zeitung received the huge stash of Mossack Fonseca documents from an anonymous source and shared them with more than 100 media groups through the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists.
A week after the first revelations, the documents have shed light on how the world's rich and powerful have used offshore companies to stash their assets, forcing Iceland's prime minister to resign and putting pressure on a slew of other leaders around the world. 

'Panama Papers' lawyers held in Brazil graft probe

PANAMA CITY (AFP) - The founders of the law firm at the centre of the "Panama Papers" scandal were being held Friday (Feb 10) as part of a probe into a sprawling graft case involving Brazilian construction group Odebrecht.
Ramon Fonseca Mora and Juergen Mossack, named partners of the Mossack Fonseca firm, were put in preventive detention late Thursday by Panamanian authorities, one of their attorneys said.
Chief prosecutor Kenia Procell said the law firm was suspected of money-laundering and forming "a criminal organisation that sought to hide assets and money of doubtful origin."

She alleged the firm also "got rid of evidence" implicating people in Brazil's "Car Wash" corruption scandal, in which the Brazilian national oil company Petrobras allegedly gave Odebrecht and other contractors inflated contracts in return for bribes.
Mossack Fonseca's attorney, Elias Solano, said there was a "lack of evidence" supporting the allegations.
On Thursday, as he turned up at the prosecutors' office to answer questions, Fonseca told reporters that Panamanian President Juan Carlos Varela - a former friend - had confided in him that he had accepted "donations" from Odebrecht.
Varela denied the accusation, saying "there were no donations from the Odebrecht company" to his 2014 electoral campaign.
Fonseca used to be a high-ranking advisor to Varela but was dismissed when the Panama Papers scandal broke in April last year.
The vast data leak from the Mossack Fonseca law firm detailed how the world's wealthy stashed assets in offshore companies.
Several countries in Latin America, among them Panama, Mexico, Argentina, Peru and Uruguay, are carrying out investigations into bribes paid by Odebrecht.
In December, the Brazilian construction company agreed with the US Justice Department to pay a world record US$3.5-billion fine after admitting it paid US$788 million in bribes to win fat construction contracts in 12 countries.
More revelations are expected soon because current and former Odebrecht executives have signed tell-all plea deals in Brazil in exchange for lighter sentences.
In Panama, ex-president Ricardo Martinelli's son and brother are under investigation.


WHY DOESN’T THE FBI AND/OR NYPD BLOW PIZZAGATE WIDE OPEN ;


WHY DOESN’T THE FBI AND/OR NYPD BLOW PIZZAGATE WIDE OPEN ;

Because they can’t.
There are now many white hats working for the FBI and NYPD.
Many of them know about the true details of Weinergate.
More importantly, they have in their possession a massive amount of evidence on the much bigger scandal known as PIZZAGATE.screen_shot_2016_12_07_at_12-02-25_pm-0
However, they are prevented from investigating PIZZAGATE given the depth and breadth of the pervasive criminality… which is ongoing in the highest echelons of society.
TPTB simply will not permit such an investigation to take place, as it would mean the end of their primary control mechanism of the Global Control Matrix.
The entire leadership of the World Shadow Government would end up exposed and in prison…for life, if not given capital punishment were the truth to be told.
Hence, those righteous agents and middle managers in the FBI, who deign to reveal the PIZZAGATE facts to the public, do so on pain of death.
To be sure, there is a zero tolerance policy for such transgressions against the ruling elites.
______________________________________________________________
Special Note:
The first thing that Deep State does when taking over any nation is to grab control of the intelligence agencies, secret services and law enforcement after they seize the media. There are none so powerful to control a populace than the law enforcement departments given the lawful lethal force that they possess.  However, it is the statutory function to make a criminal referral that really confers upon them great power.  See how the entire Clinton Emailgate revolved around FBI Director James B. Comey.   Now ask yourself: Why would Comey literally destroy the rule of law across America unless he was completely controlled by his true master?  What type of radioactive information does a handler have to have to compel an FBI director to break the law in broad daylight during prime time? This is how the highest levels of the U.S. Federal Government are controlled 24/7 by those who rule the USA from behind the curtain.
______________________________________________________________

Exactly where are we going with this discussion?

The ONLY way that PIZZAGATE will break wide open is for a nationwide demand for a real investigation.  There must be a groundswell of support from the American people. There must be a call to uncover this multi-decade crime spree to disclose the grim facts, no matter how repulsive they may be.
If there is no demand for disclosure about PIZZAGATE from the citizenry, there will be no resolution.  Heinous crimes against the children of America cannot be prosecuted without the full discovery which can occur within the court system, through the media, and by way of personal testimonies.
Therefore, it is absolutely necessary that the citizen investigators, journalists and researchers continue their digging into PIZZAGATE.  Doing so provides the single best way of taking down this God-forsaken System down, once and for all.
Quite significantly, when the number of Americans reaches a critical mass of demand for justice, the FBI and NYPD will respond accordingly.  With the populace aware and appropriately demanding justice, the nation’s law enforcement can more safely go into action … leaking, whistleblowing, and snitching on their handlers.
This is really the only way that PIZZAGATE can work itself out with a successful outcome.  Eventually, even the MSM (Mainstream Media) will be compelled to report on the unfolding developments of thePIZZAGATE investigation.  Otherwise, their failure to do so will shift unwanted scrutiny to the media magnates themselves.
The titans of the MSM are not only complicit in the massive PIZZAGATE cover-up, perhaps most of them have participated in this ongoing black operation.  Most are in so deep that they feel they have no choice but to push the ‘fake news’ narrative, even though they know it’s an outright lie and purposeful deception.

Which is why the MSM have zealously gone global with the ‘fake new’ meme.  

Now this is quite critical to understand.
There are already many alternative news websites which have banned any further posting and discussion of PIZZAGATE by their reporters and posters.  These sites have been intimidated by TPTB either directly or indirectly.
Let’s face it, when Alt Media ad revenues are put into serious jeopardy, the site owners will always go with the flow of political correctness.  No problem there, as long as everyone opens their own Alt Media websites and becomes truly independent journalists.
The MSM can throw around their patently false ‘fake news’ meme all day long.  However, there is no stopping it from coming right back to their doorstep.  For ‘fake news’ is a boomerang meme, which they were forced into disseminating but with grave consequences.
Truly, TPTB must have felt that they had no choice whatsoever as their Global Control Matrix is now facing genuine existential threats.  Yes, the true import of PIZZAGATE presents great danger to their whole bloody crime syndicate, but their reaction will prove to be suicidal.
This is why it’s imperative to ignore anyone or any website that labels PIZZAGATE a hoax or a psyop (Yes, TPTB have tried to twist it so but the reality is what it is) .  Those folks are either shills for the dark side or very ignorant of the most basic facts.  We who know the truth must go wherever we are led, but do so smartly and safely.
That’s not to say that the PIZZAGATE truth movement is not being co-opted as we write this warning.  TPTB have no choice but to call us “PIZZAGATERS” in order to marginalize us and make us look like fringe nutters.
Who cares what they do from this point forward?  TPTB are ultimately going down in a free-fall collapse like Building #7 on 9/11.  They know it, too; they’re just trying to postpone their inevitable demise.

Conclusion

This PIZZAGATE thing is really as BIG as it gets.  There is really nothing bigger on the horizon.  Yes, 9/11 was very big, but they locked down the narrative way before September 11, 2001 and mind controlled too many others while they suffered 9/11 PTSD.
PIZZAGATE, however, really did catch them by surprise, regardless of what anyone else says.  That’s why the MSM so desperately called all of their competition ‘fake news’ platforms. Does it get any more desperate than that?!  Only in this extremely juvenile way could they pre-emptively tar the whole Alt Media realm with the brush of tin-foil conspiracy.
The critical point here is that TPTB would only take such an extreme and unparalleled measure to effectively kill the PIZZAGATE story everywhere they could, if it was all true and really much worse.  Especially on the Internet do the elites want this investigation snuffed out—forever.
Now, precisely why do you think they are so eager to kill any talk of the scandal of the millennium? (PIZZAGATE: The Greatest Scandal of the Third Millennium)

13 MOST ESSENTIAL DATA-POINTS IN #PIZZAGATE PEDOPHILIA ALLEGATIONS


 23 NOV 2016   POSTED BY THE LAST AMERICAN VAGABOND




*Editor’s Note: Images and certain reference material which would typically be included within were omitted and replaced with a link where available for the reader to view. This was done intentionally to avoid the site being hit with an unjustified copyright claim as The Daily Sheeple was in regards to this story. Clearly this story is hitting a nerve which is why The Last American Vagabond will not shy away until the Truth is clear. 
By now, the disturbing story of #Pizzagate and its ongoing investigation is spreading like wildfire. Unfortunately many have yet to catch wind of exactly what the most essential pieces to this story are, the most important characters, and the implications involved. As usual, mainstream media is either blackballing it entirely, or writing propagandized “hit pieces” on the matter, implying their attempt to slander the evidence and to sway others from looking deeper into it with an open mind.
Even the New York Times did a “fact check” on it, claiming it to be false despite not presenting any information that researchers have unearthed online, or even bothering to explain why said research was deemed untrue. There was also an older, unrelated story titled “Pizzagate” that has since resurfaced, and has nothing to do with the current investigation. Other than showing the obfuscation that is occurring during the Pizzagate investigation, this also goes to show how played-out and outdated this whole, “Watergate” colloquialism has become. The tactlessness of the title and its trivial vernacular, however, do not diminish the gravity and depravity of the research at hand.
To transmute this mercury a bit, so to speak, The Last American Vagabond will attempt to plot out the quintessential points brought up by the anonymous researchers piecing it all together online. Hopefully, newcomers can get up to speed and decide for themselves what’s real and what’s not, as law enforcement and mainstream media are clearly failing to do their due diligence. This is not meant to directly slander anyone/place or preemptively accuse anyone of guilt, but instead is designed to simply provide the data and the links between different threads of research, so that others can understand the investigation easier. A fair and open trial is the endgame being sought by the collective investigating community—but to even get a trial and proper investigation with deeper resources, there must be enough evidence and public support to make an arrest, especially considering the high-profile people implicated.
Additionally, while The Last American Vagabond is merely attempting to provide a road-map of Pizzagate without the aforementioned accusations, it should be emphatically noted that the evidence involved here not only seems to be more than enough to merit the attention of our researchers, but the circumstantial evidence involved in this investigation, by both logically empirical and lawful standards, more than warrants a full investigation into these matters. 
This will not be quick, and the reader will not enjoy this. It is incredibly difficult and unsettling to read, but it is paramount that the people fully understand what is taking place here. The hard truth grinding away at the reader’s teeth, and tensing up in their chest, confusing their thought process, is the harsh potential of the thousands upon thousands (god forbid, millions) of innocent children who spend their youth circulating through these sado-occultist pedophilic smuggling rings, only to be tossed into the streets after their youth has aged away. Anyone who feels strongly about the subject has a moral obligation to share this with others, as justice will only be found with numbers. Nobody should have these disturbing facts force-fed to them, but it is imperative that those who would care, should care, and they will not care if they have not heard about it. Here is a good video summary before diving deeper.
Here is an infographic chart that can be referenced in order to see the various links between the different threads and data points. There will also be plenty of links that are either hyperlinked in or sourced below for people to go about their own research on the topic, which is highly recommended before any opinions are formed. This is still an ongoing investigation and all hands are needed on deck, and there have been numerous problems with entire open-source investigation forums being deleted (sometimes with warning, sometimes without), with all research lost that has not been saved by individuals. There are many more threads that are not even mentioned here such as probability of theunderground tunnels meant for smuggling and containing children beneath these suspected venues (a recurring theme in the history of research into this pedophilic smuggling ring—something most directly noted by the McMartin Pre-School Scandal of the late ‘80s), Huma Abedin’s connections to Saudi Arabia and their possible connections to child pedophilia, and Anthony’s Weiner’s connection, Rachel Chandler, the bizarre business named “Buck’s Fishing and Camping,” among many other interesting threads. The reality is that there is only so much data that can be reasonably covered here.

This is the rim of the rabbit hole. Hold onto your skirt, Alice, and do not fear the jump.

1) PAST HISTORY OF HIGH PROFILE CHILD PEDOPHILIA CASES

Before assessing the specifics of Pizzagate, it is important to first understand that there have been many high-profile cases of child pedophilia, as well as satanic occult rituals at the upper echelons of power before the current Pizzagate scandal even broke out—most important, it is crucial to note that these cases of pedophilic smuggling rings have never surfaced without heavy affiliations to occultism, and are often heavily linked to drug smuggling. Some of the most prevalent cases are documented in aprevious article posted The Last American Vagabond, which include the Dutroux Affair, the Franklin Scandal, the Presidio Military Base Abuse, the False Memories Syndrome Foundation, the McMartin Preschool Abuse, and The Finders Scandal. This article has plenty of links for those who wish to investigate on their own and further understand the details/extent of these cases. For a less extensive look at individual cases, and more of an over-arching analysis, the article below is a good starting point:
As with any research, this is only the tip of the iceberg, as many other people and institutions are involved in the disturbing practice of child pedophilia and smuggling. Some prominent people involved include famous media mogul Jimmy Savile (who socialized with Royalty and was knighted by both the Queen and the Pope); the Penn State Assistant Football Coach Jerry Sandusky; and elite financial investment mogul Jeffrey Epstein, who is discussed in more detail below. There are also high-profile cultures like Hollywood and the Vatican, and implications even from WestPoint Academy, which have been the centerpiece of various cases involving child pedophilia. Some of this has come to light through court cases and researchers, while other claims have come through controversial whistleblowers such as Cathy O’Brien, and even outspoken Hollywood stars like Corey Feldman and Elijah Wood. Both stars have discussed the realities of a deep undercurrent of pedophilic child smuggling at the highest levels of Hollywood.

2) COMET PING PONG

One of the epicenters of the investigation has to do with pizzeria in Washington DC called “Comet Ping Pong.” The owner of this pizza place is James Alefantis, who happened to be ranked #49 in the top 50 “Most Powerful People in Washington” of GQ magazine. His ex-boyfriend, David Brock, is the founder of the liberal media watchdog group “Media Matters For America” and the Pro Hillary super Pac, Correct The Record (CTR). Brock also has been described by Time magazine as “one of the most influential operatives in the Democratic Party.” Interestingly, the infamous George Soros has contributed sizable amounts of funds to PAC’s chaired by James Alefantis; Soros is also a major financier of Media Matters. Alefantis and Brock, for what it’s worth, also seem to be caught in some mysterious blackmail love triangle that has embroiled them prior to the Pizzagate allegations.
Comet Ping Pong itself is interesting for a variety of reasons. Firstly, many prominent democrats have held fundraisers there such as Hillary Clinton and Barrack Obama, which is odd considering it’s just some small pizza shop and supposedly a family location that is child-friendly. This sparked further research, which lead to the discovery of the Comet Ping Pong Instagram page, which has some incredibly strange pictures and comments that are highly suggestive of child pedophilia as well as torture rooms and hidden chambers hidden beneath this area (abandoned subway tunnels have been reportedly confirmed beneath the area, and reports have also claimed that Comet Ping Pong has not had a building permit in over three years, meaning that there is likely no official record of any renovations of this type done). The account has since been set to private, but many of the pictures were archived by researchers. There is also a lot of strange artwork on the wall at Comet Ping Pong and equally weird flyers for concerts that have strong sexual themes, grotesque vulgarity and overt occultism, which again is very weird for a place that is supposedly suitable for children and boasts an “All Ages” claim underneath the artwork on these flyers. Many of these concerts start late at night and serve alcohol, yet claim they are suitable for all ages.
Some other points of interest include Majestic Ape (Amanda Klienman), who regularly performs there, yet has references to child pedophilia in her songs. There are also pedophile symbols in Comet Ping pong’s menu brochures, which seem to match the same pedophile symbols outlined by the FBI.
Independent journalist, Jack Posobiec, decided to go investigate both Comet Ping Pong and Besta Pizza (discussed ahead) by periscoping his dinner there with his smart-phone, yet was promptly kicked out by the police. His description of what happened is quite telling and can be viewed here. Finally, there are hidden bathrooms in the Comet Ping Pong as well as a mysterious backroom, which is often pointed out by yelp customers as quite strange. The overwhelming amount of circumstantial evidence raises an aura of peculiarity and suspicion, but no direct proof of anything nefarious has been found in this pizza joint. The real dirt is found online, and between the connections of the characters involved in this story.

3) CODED LANGUAGE IN THE PODESTA EMAILS LEAKED BY WIKILEAKS

The heart of the Pizzagate research essentially stemmed from the Podesta emails released by WikiLeaks. Due to the tireless reporting during the (s)Election Cycle of these emails, they were scoured by independent researchers and collaboratively discussed online. As a minor note of interest, due to this connection to the (s)Election hype, there are small but notable elements of independent Trump support who have been instrumental in promulgating this research, which was readily welcomed because of their heavy anti-Clinton stance.
Pouring through these emails, researchers online found high level politicians fancied Comet Ping Pong as a successful political fundraiser venue. Odd as that is, collaborative researchers began deeply researching Comet Ping Pong, Besta Pizza, et cetera, stumbling across their Instagram accounts and much more … and the rest is becoming history.
Meanwhile, as people investigated the details involving the physical locations, researchers began analyzing the absolute nonsense that was found throughout any and all emails related to Comet Ping Pong. This section here can only remain as a summary, but suffice it to say that when these emails are poured through one by one, it becomes absolutely clear that these food-related words are code language, and this directly implies by proxy that Comet Ping Pong and likely Besta Pizza are indeed fronts for something. If all of the language used by politicians surrounding these joints is code, then it seems an entirely logical point of investigation—if nothing more.
Surely, these people can’t be so desperate to “make a pizza” for one another when they are all busy moguls of one sort or another. Why would grown men and women be so continuously and excitedly emailing and promptly responding amongst each other about “cooking” and “eating” all sorts of very basic “foods.” One of the primary indications that something strange was occurring here, was the “cooking” relationship to Marina Abramavic’s “spirit cooking” “art” rituals (see section 8). Firstly, anyone who is a true occultist will tell you that art is exclusively an expression of metaphysical archetypal concepts, and that any good magician uses their art to further their magick. This is a basic tenet that has been discussed by occultists since occultists have been discussing things. When these people casually laugh off these theories because they were “just performing art,” they are denying the truth by obfuscation, and admitting it at the same time.
The discovered coded language used within the Podesta emails appears to be one used exclusively by known pedophiles. This code uses food items such as “pasta” “cheese pizza”, and “ice cream,” to refer to child pedophilia. They also appear to be talking in handkerchief code, which is even listed in Wikipedia as a coded color system for sex, mostly stemming from underground homosexual movements in the 1970’s.
Symbology is admittedly a slippery-slope, and it is recommended that one be educated in the subject when deciphering symbols and their context. Of course, the researchers very well may have been educated in symbolism since they are mainly anonymous users online, and there is also a lot of discussion of FBI-insiders collaborating on the research—angry at their lack of results going after Clinton. Regardless, the correlation is apparent. 
As a final point of consideration on this data point, remember that the symbol of the “pizza” has become iconic in this case due to the FBI’s known list of pedophiliac communication symbology. Case in point, Besta Pizza’s sign is accused of being a calling card that is identical of the FBI’s “Boy Lover” logo, being a triangle with a specific style of squiggle(a little ironic that triangles are the center of all this…). Comet Ping Pong’s gimmick of having “ping pong tables in the basement” has also been suggested to be symbolic of “playing” with the children that may or may not be literally kept in the basement.
Here is the circulated list of the alleged “code words.” Despite pizza being reminiscent of the “Little Boy Lover” symbol, “hotdog” is the dialectic code for “boy” and “pizza” is the code for “girl,” for grotesque reasons of biological observation.
