Count me as another Sanders supporter who then preferred Trump over Killary and now is solidly backing Trump. Most Berners I know support Trump now. We all think Trump's the best / only chance we have now to finally drain the swamp.

I found this PDF from the Smithsonian with Tony Podesta's artwork in it from 2009. Who does it thank in the Special Thanks section...? One James Alefantis. submitted by neurofluxation to pizzagate

Great find. Reading the notes about the exhibit , the whole fucking thing is depraved, with themes of predators, captivity, and distress running throughout. Psychobabble efforts to explain the images as representing self-seeking etc. are obvious BS.

One wonders how the museum would react to artwork depicting corrupt lobbyists and inexplicably powerful pizza shop owners being found guilty and thrown in jail? That's an exhibition I'd pay to see.

When Hillary's Goldman speeches were getting too much attention fucking Brock started in with the Berniebros bullshit and said Bernie should make his speeches transparent too. Bernie replied that he only had 1 paid speech in his whole career , it was for a nurses Union, he gave all proceeds to charity, and the speech already posted on YouTube. That was a rare case when Brock's dirty tricks didn't pay off, but it's absolutely right that projection is his preferred misdirection and sure as shit he's already scheming how to project pedo away from the real perps.

Do you understand the difference between logic and illogic? If so, No True Scotsman shouldn't be too hard for you to grasp. Let's try again, here's a quick test for you. Which of the following represent a No True Scotsman fallacy? 1: No true Scotsman would ever steal. Answer: yes, because being Scottish is a fact of birth, with no logical relevance to stealing. Scottish citizens have been found guilty of stealing, and they have not lost their birthright as a result, so this statement is illogical. 2: No honest Scotsman would ever steal. Answer: no, this is quite logical, as honesty is a descriptor of behavior, and it makes perfect sense (can even be considered redundant) to point out that someone, no matter where from, may have their honesty questioned if they steal.

3: No true Scotsman would claim that Hillary is the ringleader. Answer: yes, for same reason as mentioned above. One may very well hold a Scottish passport and make this claim without any logical borders being crossed. 4: No credible researcher claims that Hillary is the ringleader. Answer: no, because 'credibility' is an earned, perceptual descriptor. You have perhaps heard the phrase that someone's credibility has been damaged? The OP was making a simple, logical statement which can be rephrased as 'any Pizzagate researcher who claims that Hillary is the ringleader is not credible.' Same exact meaning, and again quite logical.

Regarding the specific instance you cite, this does not relate to No True Scotsman. The OP has every right to challenge the credibility of anyone making this claim, does he not?

Again, this is off-thread, but letting sloppy logic comments get by is a slippery slope! The next thing you know, you might claim pizzagate / pedogate is not real ..

Oh, thanks for the heads-up. I should've known when I saw the lame attempt at logical reasoning!

Good question, here we go: I understand that at the top he's up against a legion of deep state and various ptb, understand that lower levels in the hierarchy (judges, police, bureaucrats, etc) are infested, understand that many / most of the organized crime syndicates have no interest in the swamp being drained, understand that certain foreign intelligence services prefer the murky status quo, and understand that even natural allies for him may be compromised due to some non-pedo related error of judgment in the past, rendering them unable to be of much assistance now.

The deck is stacked against him, the smoke and mirrors must be intense, and he's not Batman.

Having said that, here's where we should hold him accountable:

  • Don't appoint scumbags to high positions (Obama revealed his bait and switch from Day One by appointing Rahm and Larry Fucking Summers)

  • Continue to commit to draining the swamp (Obama revealed his bait and switch in his 'forward not backward' speech)

  • Continue to keep his promises and engage with his supporters (Obama revealed his bait and switch by not appointing any progressives after financing his campaign through grass roots donations)

  • Don't stand in the way (Obama was almost literally standing in the way of swamp-draining, I.e. by Holder's Justice Dept taking the time to send amicus letters to protect John Yoo)

  • Take opportunities when they arise (if evidence can be available or a bad guy slips up, make your move)

  • Continue to go after pedos & traffickers as a swamp-draining priority (so far he seems to be doing this)

  • No blatant bullshit like gagging Sibel, using an arcane legal gambit to prosecute corruption whistleblowers like Thomas Drake, no political prisoners like Siegelman, etc.

  • If any pay for play, for fucks sake make it be about getting a casino license or season tickets somewhere, not about starting a fucking war
