    Edgar Maddison Welch

    Edgar Maddison Welch




    Edgar Maddison Welch is an actor.[1](archived version)
    Welch lived in Haiti for an undisclosed time.[2](archived version)
    Welch was involved in an accident hitting a 13 year old with his car.[3](archived version)
    Harry Welch Jr.

    Edgar Welch's father, Harry Welch Jr., was elected President of the North Carolina Crime Stoppers Association for two terms. Harry Welch Jr. also served as Executive Director for Protect-A-Child, a national, non-profit organization to prevent abuse and abduction of children. Welch was appointed by Governor Jim Martin to the Governor's Commission on Child Victimization. They have also served as a foster family to three different children. President Ronald Reagan selected Harry to join 15 other broadcasters to visit US Military Instillation in Colorado. They received national clearance from the US Defense Department to visit the Cheyenne Mountain Nuclear Bunker the alternate command center for NORAD. Harry worked on federal , state and local task forces fighting the war on drugs. He served five years with the Rowan County ABC police. Duties included: stakeouts, watching illegal stills, patrolling the county for suspected bootleggers transporting non-tax paid whiskey, working undercover to purchase illegal liquor and participating in raids on stills and gambling houses. Their agency also worked with the U.S. Treasury Department's local office of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms which increased their coverage area to eight counties. Harry is a special deputy with the Iredell County Sheriff's Department. He also produced a number of films.[4](archived version)
    Comet Ping Pong incident

    On December 4, Edgar sought entrance to Comet Ping Pong to investigate Pizzagate. He was arrested 45 minutes later, after reportedly discharging a firearm, after which action additional guns were recovered by the police.[5](archived version)
    Besides his background, there were additional signs this was a false flag operation to possibly elevate the Pizzagate situation to a threat so that the agencies can take action against the public investigation. A CCTV/traffic camera with the view on Comet Ping Pong reportedly was removed a day before the incident [6][7] as well as a lock-down of a two block radius, and additional camera movement.[8]
    A witness who was inside Comet Ping Pong at the time, Sharif Silmi, posted to Twitter that Edgar was arrested trying to hide a shotgun somewhere in Comet [9]. Sharif himself mentions that he saw and heard no shots fired [10]. This is a brazen contradiction to much of the mainstream media's alleged facts.
    Three days after the incident on December 7 The New York Times interviewed Mr. Welch and asked about his motives and history. Welch stated that “The intel on this wasn’t 100 percent", and according to The New York Times conceded "only that there were no children “inside that dwelling.”" No clear motive was ever given as to why it was done other than to find imprisoned children, and he doesn't give the "sources" which led him to fire a weapon inside the restaurant, harming nobody. It's also fairly unprecedented that a newspaper would be granted a video interview with such a high-profile shooter on such short notice, but there is a consistent connection between The New York Times and anti-Pizzagate propaganda.

    Bullet hole in Comet Ping Pong computer

    The bullet he fired went through a coat closet door lock and then into their computer.[11] That this would be announced was predicted.[12]
    According to a sourced article on Edgar is said to have fired a single shot after employees and diners had fled, not multiple as is claimed, and that he had shot it into the floor. This seems to contradict Sharif Silmi's testimony at the time. There is also repeated claims that he used an assault rifle, and still other testimony closer the time of the event say it was a shotgun. Heavy's article now claims he brought two weapons into Comet. Overall there seem to be quite a number of elements to this story on which the mainstream media can't seem to agree.
    Official police report

    According to the official police report Welch was in possession of a Colt AR-15, Colt .38 handgun, and an "unknown" make of shotgun.[13] Welch fired three shots into the restaurant, upon which an employee fled from the freezer to the exit.[14] Welch pointed his weapon at the employee, but the nothing was harmed aside from a door, a lock, and the computer tower which can be seen mentioned above.[15]
    Plea deal negotiations

    On February 10, 2017 Edgar Maddison Welch is to submit a plea before the court. Prosecutors have made a plea deal, but it will be unknown until that time whether he accepts it or not.[16](
    On February 10, 2016 Edgar Welch pled not guilty to all of his charges.[17]

    Connection to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

    Hillary Clinton and Hashim Thaci

    Last December Hashim Thaci, the Prime Minister of Kosovo, was alleged to be "the head of a 'mafia-like' Albanian group responsible for smuggling weapons, drugs and human organs through eastern Europe, according to a Council of Europe inquiry report on organized crime" as then reported by Paul Lewis for the Guardian.
    Source: Guardian (
    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton visited him in Kosovo as recently as the fall. "I want you to know, prime minister," Clinton said to Thaci, during her visit to Pristina on Oct. 13 last year, "that just as we have been with you on the hard road to independence, we will stay with you. We are your partners and we are your friends and we are very committed to your future."

    Serwer said that Clinton has “certainly heard the allegations against them … . We all heard them.” When asked for an interview on Hashim or what all the allegations against him were, etc… many declined to comment. Including then former secretary Albright and secretary Clinton.

    Connection to Clinton Foundation and organ trafficking

    In the aftermath of the U.S.-led war in Kosovo in 1999, this nascent democracy, born of an international effort to protect human rights, has become a hub of the global trade in human beings, according to human rights investigators who monitor human trafficking.
    This industry, which operates in a shadowy underworld where former members of armed militias have turned into murderous enforcers in a criminal enterprise, nets an estimated $32 billion globally every year and is widely considered by international human rights’ investigators to be the fastest growing criminal activity in the world.

    Clinton Foundation foreign policy adviser Amitabh Desai wrote in an Aug. 17, 2011 email to several top Hillary Clinton State Department officials.
    “Is Thaci still embroiled in organ harvesting issues and is that of consequence?”

    Peter Soros




    From the Paul and Daisy Soros Fellowship for New Americans

    Peter Soros lives between London and New York and has managed his family’s investment office since 1998. Their investment activities have been concentrated in a relatively small number of venture capital, private equity and hedge funds, and a broader range of direct investments in the energy, technology, telecom, consumer and financial services sectors. Prior to that period he worked as an investment banker and managed a hedge fund.
    During the 1991-1994 period, he also spent time on the ground in Russia and the Ukraine working on government aid programs to improve their grain import infrastructure and poultry production, respectively. From 1994-1998 Peter was also active as an editor and columnist for Tatler Magazine.
    He received a BA from Vassar College in 1978 and an MBA from Columbia University 1981.
    From Tatler

    There are two things that Peter Soros really excels at, and happily they go together perfectly - canapés and being fun at parties. Being American and fantastically generous, he understands the vital importance of the snack like nobody else on this list.
    Marriage to Flora Fraser

    Soros would marry Flora Fraser in 1997, daughter of Lady Antonia Pinter of London and the late Sir Hugh Fraser.
    From the New York Times article, Peter Soros and Flora Fraser, published: February 2nd, 1997:[1]
    The bride is a daughter of Lady Antonia Pinter of London and the late Sir Hugh Fraser. Her mother, the author Antonia Fraser, wrote ''Mary Queen of Scots'' and, most recently, ''Faith and Treason: The Story of the Gunpowder Plot.'' The bride's stepfather is the playwright Harold Pinter.

    The bride's father was a Conservative member of Parliament from 1945 to 1984, and the Secretary of State for Air from 1962 to 1964, and oversaw the Royal Air Force under Prime Minister Harold Macmillan.Separation

    Soros and Fraser would split twelve years later, in 2009.[2]
    Death of father, Paul Soros

    From the NY Social Diary:[3][Archived Version]
    Last Thursday morning at 11 at Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center, they held a memorial service for Paul Soros who died on June 15th, just ten days after his 87th birthday. Mr. Soros had been very ill for the past several years – although he made the best of it and lived his life to the fullest possible right to the end.
    There were several hundred guests all but filling the auditorium, including many of the city’s prominent philanthropists, businessmen and the many friends of Mr. Soros and his wife Daisy. Memorials of this sort – of prominent New Yorkers are uniquely impressive because of the great public curiosity and the guests they draw.
    The program began promptly at 11.Peter Soros, the eldest of the two Soros sons, spoke first, followed by his brother Jeffrey; then by the Soros grandchildren – Preston, Simon, Sabrina, Tommy Soros; then Stella Powell-Jones, a relative through marriage, and then his nephew Robert Soros. His younger brother George, was not present.

    Connection to Jeffrey Epstein

    The house butler of sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, Alfredo Rodriguez, immediately prior to releasing Epstein's "Little Black Book" to an undercover agent, put notations around individuals who received "erotic massages" by Epstein's underage victims. Among them was Peter Soros.[8] Also notable, is that Peter Soros has approximately 13 phone numbers in Jeffrey Epstein's book.
    Soros' uncle, George Soros, and George Soros' related phone numbers are also listed in convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein's "Little Black Book," though many more elites are as well and George Soros did not receive the same notation by Rodriguez as Peter Soros.

    Connection to convicted pedophile film director, Roman Polanski (strength of relationship unclear)

    Peter Soros was at a rare public appearance of pedophile film director, Roman Polanski.
    From the Wrap article, Roman Polanski Makes Rare Public Appearance at Harvey Weinstein’s Screening of ‘Big Eyes’ in Gstaad (Exclusive), by Matt Donnelly, published on December 29th, 2014.
    The Monday evening screening was held at the luxurious new Alpina Hotel, drawing RSVPs from deep-pocketed art collectors.

    Polanski’s attendance marks a rare outing for the director, who recently lost a bid to dismiss sexual assault charges from 1977 that would allow his reentry to the United States.

    At the time, Polanski was charged with raping 13-year-old Samantha Geimer. He accepted a plea bargain and was serving time for psychiatric evaluation. Upon learning a judge intended to hand down additional jail time, he fled the country before final sentencing, settling in France.

    “Big Eyes,” which features a buzzworthy performance from Amy Adams as painter Margaret Keane, also attracted the influential art set.
    European collector families like the Manoukians, the Amons, Peter Soros and Olivier Berggruen were represented, as well as Chopard’s Caroline Scheufele.

    The last-minute shindig comes on the heels of the film’s Italian premiere on the island of Capri.It should be noted that the island of Capri was known in Roman times as the site of Emperor Tiberius' most depraved acts of pedophilia, including sex acts with toddlers.[9]

    The case uncovers the brutal methods used to snare young women - some as young as 15 - into a call-girl agency specialising in wealthy, high- profile clients. It also exposes attempts by the French government machine to block an investigation which might embarrass senior politicians and damage French interests abroad.

    Connection to pedophile film director, Roman Polanski

    Robert De Niro is known to have been close friends with pedophile film director, Roman Polanski. In fact, De Niro would be the first person Polanski would meet immediately after raping 13 year old Samantha Gailey in 1977.
    From the New York Post article, Inside story of the night that Polanski raped a child, published on October 29, 2009:[9]
    Samantha [Gailey] had met Polanski through her mother, Susan, a television actress. The director said he had an assignment to photograph young girls for a Paris fashion magazine, Vogue Hommes, and had heard about Samantha from a mutual friend.

    Polanski went to her home on the afternoon of Feb. 20 and took some pictures in the hills nearby. He picked her up again on March 10, stopped at Jacqueline Bisset’s house and, as the light was fading, went to Nicholson’s compound on Mulholland Drive.

    Polanski dropped Samantha off at her home a few hours later and went about his business. He met with Robert De Niro that evening to discuss making a movie based on a William Goldman novel, “Magic.”

    Ronald "Ron" Burkle



    Generally Accepted Facts from Wikipedia

    Ronald ["Ron"] Wayne Burkle (born November 12, 1952) is an American investor and philanthropist. He is co-founder and managing partner of The Yucaipa Companies, LLC, a private equity and venture capital firm that specializes in underperforming U.S. companies in the distribution, logistics, food, retail, consumer and light industrial sectors. Yucaipa has executed grocery chain mergers and acquisitions involving supermarket chains including Fred Meyer, Ralphs, and Jurgensen's, and owns stakes in about 35 companies including grocery chains A&P and Whole Foods Market.
    Burkle’s net worth is estimated at $2.9 billion. He was ranked #633 on Forbes' list of “The Richest People On The Planet 2014.”
    Burkle is a prominent Democratic activist and fundraiser.
    Relationship with #Pizzagate

    Connection to Bill Clinton


    Burkle and Bill Clinton were very close friends for many years.
    From the 2008 New Republic article, "Friends Like These...":[1]
    He's never been accused of any crimes, but Ron Burkle lies at the center of any innuendo about Bill Clinton’s post-presidential life. A much-commented-upon May 2006 New York Times article stated, “Mr. Clinton is rarely without company in public, yet the company he keeps rarely includes his wife. Nights out find him zipping around Los Angeles with his bachelor buddy, Ronald W. Burkle.” The zippy Burkle, friends with Bill since 1992, often flies the former president in his private Boeing 575, described by Clinton as "Ron Air" and "Air Force Two." Burkle, also reportedly a “longtime friend” of Michael Jackson, has thrown lavish fund-raisers for Hillary at Green Acres, his Hollywood estate. Rumors abound about the supermarket billionaire’s private life. “Page Six” covered Bill's bachelor buddy unfavorably, writing that he used the jet to entertain young models--and that he was dating Gisele Bundchen. Burkle then made headlines by secretly recording an alleged extortion attempt by a reporter for the gossip column. He has also been accused of using his influence as a Democratic donor to speed a law through the California legislature that would have kept the records of his messy divorce proceedings sealed.That Boeing 757 was also referred to as "Air **** One":[2]

    Falling Out

    Burkle and Bill Clinton would have a public falling out in 2007.[3] The reason often given by news sources and implied by Burkle was because Burkle had gotten Clinton involved in the Yucaipa mess with Raffaello Follieri.[4] However, 2007 was also the year sex offender Jeffrey Epstein would be arrested and Clinton and Burkle had flown on Epstein's 727, the "Lolita Express," several times according to flight logs.[5] 2007 would also be the year the public would learn Burkle was giving Michael Jackson advice during Jackson's 2005 child molestation trial.
    2007 was a big year for Ron Burkle.
    Jared Paul Stern defamation case

    Bill Clinton (and Hillary Clinton) would also be co-defendants with Burkle, in Jared Paul Stern's defamation case. Under penalty of perjury, Jared Paul Stern alleged in his complaint, among other things, that Burkle and Bill Clinton were sexually involved with minors. No charges of perjury against Stern were ever brought, however, and all government investigations into Stern were dropped without charges.

    Connection to repeatedly alleged pedophile, Michael Jackson

    Michael Jackson and Burkle are known to be friends. According to Michael Jackson, Burkle even gave Jackson advice during his 2005 child molestation trial (Note: the same case where actor Chris Tucker would be the star defense witness). Fox News (using material from the Associated Press) reported in 2007, "Jackson testified that during his trial he received wise advice during bathroom break cell phone calls with Burkle, the billionaire friend of former President Bill Clinton."[9]

    Connection to Danny A and Steve Bing

    Gawker staff had heard a rumor that Bill Clinton visited Graydon Carter to stop Vanity Fair from running an expose on sex offender Jeffrey Epstein when Epstein was arrested for illicit activities with underage girls in 2007. The expose also related to other people in Clinton's circle, including Burkle and his ties to promoter Danny A and Steve Bing
    From Gawker on September 24th, 2007 in article entitled, The Truth About Jeffrey Epstein and 'Vanity Fair':[11]
    Here are some of the crazed rumors we've heard about the Vanity Fair story that John Connolly is writing about alleged financier-perv* billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, of whom it is alleged that he retained a procurer of underage girls. Oh my God, we heard that Bill Clinton came into 4 Times Square and told Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter that this expose of Epstein must not run and of course Graydon folded like a paper doll. And also we heard alleged former Epstein alleged friend Ron Burkle is Danny A's backer on every club he opens and Burkle does that to harvest pretty young things then flies them to L.A. and allegedly sells them to Epstein and alleged movie-producer Steve "Bing Laden" Bing and it is this cabal of partying hedonists that has prevented the piece from running!Connection to Publicist/Fixer Mike Sitrick

    From, Mike Sitrick, Paris Hilton's New Best Friend, by Doree Shafrir, June 25th, 2007:[12]
    Billionaire businessman Burkle is indeed a longtime client of his—Sitrick orchestrated the sting of Jared Paul Stern last year, then defended Burkle in the press when the whole thing threatened to blow up in his face—but his client list is staggeringly wide-ranging.Additional Sources: [13], [14]

    Connection to Cerberus Capital Management, parent company of DynCorp, a defense contractor that engages in child sex trafficking

    Burkle was reportedly an investor in Cerberus Capital Management.[15]
    Cerberus Capital Management is the parent company of DynCorp International.[16]
    Burkle would later be named as a defendant in a class action suit by Cerberus Capital Management. It is unclear what the nature of the case was (other than a violation of the Securities Exchange Act) and, for the moment, only the docket is available. Burkle is listed on page 4 of 19: File:Cerberus Capital Management Class Action Suit.pdf
    Connection to PI Anthony Pellicano

    Connection to Yusef Jackson and Jesse Jackson

    Burkle and the Jackson family are long time friends.[citation needed] Jesse Jackson would also help Michael Jackson in the 2005 child molestation case.
    Jared Paul Stern Blackmail Scandal

    This scandal, involving NY Post writer, Jared Stern, would lead to Burkle's next controversy involving his ownership of Radar magazine.
    From Wikipedia:[18]
    Jared Paul Stern is an American-Canadian editor, publisher, photographer, designer and former freelance reporter and columnist for the New York Post who gained national notoriety when he was accused by California billionaire businessman Ron Burkle of alleged extortion. Prior to the scandal, Stern had written for the popular "Page Six" column for 11 years.More from Wikipedia:[19]
    In April 2006, supermarket magnate and Democratic fundraiser Ron Burkle released selectively edited transcripts of six minutes of videotape of two face-to-face meetings he had had with Stern the previous month. In the sections made available to the media, Stern appears to try to extort $220,000 from Burkle in exchange for "protection" from inaccurate reporting about the billionaire in Stern's gossip columns. Burkle released copies of e-mails from Stern in which Stern inquires about the status of expected payments. Burkle had previously complained about erroneous stories about himself in the Post to Rupert Murdoch, his neighbor and owner of the newspaper, in a personal letter, to which Murdoch reportedly never responded.

    Stern claims in a series of published interviews that he had been "set up" by Burkle, and was only in meetings with him to discuss a possible investment in his clothing company, Skull & Bones.

    The Post suspended Stern while the video clips were made public, and fired him on April 21, 2006. Criminal charges have not been filed against Stern; federal prosecutors handed the case to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, who declined to prosecute.

    In October, 2006, an unnamed source leaked to the press that Stern had landed a contract with Simon & Schuster to publish a book, tentatively to be called Stern Measures, about the Post, its gossip pages, and various scandals with which he is familiar. However, on August 7, 2007, reported that the book deal had been cancelled.

    In January 2007, the Associated Press ran a story saying that the federal investigation into Stern had been dropped. Stern later filed an unsuccessful civil lawsuit against not only Burkle, but also Frank Renzi, Michael Sitrick, William Sherman, The New York Daily News, Hillary Clinton, and Bill Clinton, claiming libel, emotional distress, interference in business relationship, injurious falsehood, abuse of process, and civil conspiracy.The Radar Magazine Ownership Coverup

    Verified Complaint

    PDF Scanned Copy of the Summons and Verified Complaint:File:Jared complaint 2007.pdf
    A VerIfied Complaint is different from a normal Complaint, in that the plaintiff swears to the allegations, under penalty of perjury:[24]
    A complaint where the plaintiff (or, in limited cases, the plaintiff's counsel) swears to the allegations, demonstrating to a court that the plaintiff has investigated the charges against the defendant and found them to be of substance. In many jurisdictions, a complaint does not need to be verified unless a rule or statute specifically states otherwise.Here are some highlights. Remember, these claims were all made in a legal complaint by Jared Paul Stern, under penalty of perjury. No such perjury charges were ever brought, and both FBI and US Attorney's Office investigations against Jared Paul Stern would be dropped, as discussed in the complaint itself and further below.
    12. During the past few years, Defendant Burkle, a powerful, politically connected billionaire who socializes with celebrities and carries on sexual liaisons with fashion models, some of whom are under the age of consent, became increasingly upset at what he perceived as unflattering coverage in the New York Post.45. By manufacturing the scandal aimed at incriminating Mr. Stern, Defendants Burkle, [Frank] Renzi, [Mike] Sitrick, and the Clintons hoped to divert and intimidate journalists who might attempt to report on their illegal activity or publish embarrassing revelations of Burkle and Bill Clinton's sexual misconduct, including Clinton's extramarital affairs facilitated by Burkle, and sexual activity with minors, and even more importantly dissuade negative coverage of the numerous scandals that have been attributed and which will undoubtedly be uncovered about Hillary Clinton as she runs for the presidency in 2008.Additional Links

    Burkle also has been slapped around by the bitchy media blog citings since March. When one item unfavorably contrasted him with a financier he detests, Burkle's lawyers launched a letter demanding a retraction and an apology. Gawker editors jeered and posted the letter for all to see; a day later apologized, acidly.The financier referred to was, of course, Jeffrey Epstein.[34] It appears Burkle and Epstein were constantly vying for Bill Clinton's attention, and perhaps even made similar "offerings."[35]

    Connection to Eli Broad

    From the New York Times article, Odd Couple Ponder Bid for Tribune, by Geraldine Fabrikant and Laura M. Holsonjan, published on January 16th, 2007:[40]
    They seem an unlikely pair: Eli Broad, the straight-talking billionaire whose art collection and philanthropic efforts to revitalize downtown Los Angeles have put him happily in the public eye, and Ronald W. Burkle, the supermarket mogul, Democratic fund-raiser and F.O.B. (friend of Bill Clinton) who tries — usually unsuccessfully — to avoid publicity.

    By tomorrow, the two men will decide whether their unlikely partnership should go forward in serious pursuit of the Tribune Company, owner of two dozen TV stations, the Chicago Cubs and 11 daily newspapers, including The Chicago Tribune, Newsday and — most important to Mr. Broad and Mr. Burkle — The Los Angeles Times..Additionally:[41]
    Exactly what the agendas of Mr. Broad and Mr. Burkle might be — and where their elbows might fly — is difficult to measure. Neither would comment. Both have expressed interest in owning The Times as a civic duty. But some people who know both men wonder whether they will be able to work together. Mr. Broad and Mr. Burkle have very little in common, they say. “They are both interesting men, but they are from different worlds,” said Richard Riordan, the former Los Angeles mayor. He has traveled with both men on a yacht leased by Mr. Broad in Italy and Greece.

    Neither man is part of the traditional Hollywood studio crowd. When asked about the two, several studio executives said they did not know them or did not know them well.

    In those circles, Mr. Burkle, 54, is best known for his friendship with Stephen Bing, the film producer who fathered a child with both the actress Elizabeth Hurley and Kirk Kerkorian’s former wife, Lisa. Mr. Burkle is also a political ally of Mr. Clinton and has allowed him to use his jet.Additional Source:[42]
    In the end, however, real estate entrepreneur Sam Zell would succeed in buying the Tribune Co.[43]
    Connection to Michael Ovitz and the Gay Mafia

    From the Vanity Fair article, Michael Ovitz, Take Two, by Ned Zeman, published in April 2001:[44]
    Then, teaming with supermarket mogul Ron Burkle, Ovitz tried to bring an N.F.L. franchise to Los Angeles. But he and Burkle clashed. So did Ovitz and financier Eli Broad, who was part of a different L.A. bid group. Ultimately, for reasons having nothing to do with personality, the franchise was awarded to Houston.

    Ovitz and Burkle later clashed again over their investment in, a controversial entertainment and Napster-like music-exchange Web site, after the two men could not agree on a sale price for a potential suitor. Burkle, in conjunction with Scour’s founders, held out for roughly $100 million. Ovitz, who owned a minority stake, wanted to sell it for about $50 million—and not a moment too soon, since Scour had created genuine conflict-of-interest concerns for AMG, whose music clients surely did not want their material exchanged free of charge. (Ovitz notes that file-exchange technology did not exist when he first invested in Scour.) Ultimately, Scour filed for bankruptcy and was sold. Although the two partners may eventually recoup their money, they are unlikely to re-team on future investments. Neither would confirm rumors that each feels that the other owes him money—millions of dollars, by some estimates.However, Ovitz and Burkle's animosity toward one another would go even deeper when, what Ovitz refers to as the "Gay Mafia," turned on him. Ovitz would hire private investigator Anthony Pellicano to investigate members of the Gay Mafia, including Ron Burkle.
    From the Huffington Post article,Pellicano Trial: What They Didn’t Ask Michael Ovitz, by Allison Hope Weiner, published on April 22nd, 2008 :[45]
    “Ovitz responded that he asked Pellicano to obtain information about individuals who were either providing, or spreading around, personal and/or negative information about Ovitz....” the F.B.I. 302 notes. “Ovitz said the list of individuals was 15 to 20 people long and included [RON] BURKLE, [RON] MEYER, BERNIE WEINRAUB, JAMES CASEY, ARTHUR BERNIER, and DAVID GEFFEN. Both Ovitz and Pellicano contributed names to the list.”Livent

    Connection to David Geffen

    From Forbes article, The Six Degrees of Ron Burkle, by Matthew Miller, published on November 22, 2006:[47]
    Geffen, Burkle’s neighbor in Beverly Hills, introduced Burkle to investor Eddie Lampert in 2002. Burkle nearly became Lampert’s partner in the bankruptcy buyout of Kmart before pulling out at the last minute. Burkle and Geffen are likely headed for a showdown in the battle for the Los Angeles Times. Geffen has yet to bid on the paper or its parent company, Tribune. But word is he’s angling for it.

    Bill Maher Defended Child Sex Abuse in 1998

    By Nathan Lichtman February 22, 2017
    chat 10 comments

    Bill Maher is taking a victory lap, claiming he was instrumental in Milo Yiannopoulos' downfall. But it seems as though Maher is guilty of defending sex with children. In 1998, on his ABC show, he was discussing the case of a Seattle schoolteacher who had sexual relations with her 12-year-old student and got pregnant by him, and Maher said, "She is in jail because she is in love. That’s how I view it." When one of his guests said that the teacher had raped the student, he insisted, "Raped?... Come on!" Any sane person can determine that a 12-year-old is not capable of consenting.

    Pizzagate Decoded - Part I: What is Hillary Clinton's "owl/minerva rule"?

    7 days ago
    61 in pizzagate

    This is part of an on-going segment to try and decrypt various infamous symbols and references which have come up during Pizzagate-related research. These notes may then provide as useful tools for others who may come across further references in their own research.

    Internet researchers have been mystified ever since a WikiLeaks email was uncovered tied to Hillary Clinton which made a cryptic reference to an "owl/minerva rule". There has been much debate as to what this meant, including its potential reference to the occult and the goddess, Minerva.
    Do you think the last paragraph violates the owl/minerva rule?
    They are fine with the last paragraph.
    Excerpt from Jacob J. Sullivan email to Hillary Clinton

    "Minerva represents a group of like-minded states that support the creation of credible and binding institutions, possibly backed by a limited but creative use of force"
    In the first, competitive mode, Minervian powers support multilateralism primarily based on their perceived economic or political self-interests.They support global institution-building either to upload national constraints to the global level or according to counter-hegemonic motives against the US.
    In the second, normative mode, Minervian states support multilateralism under the influence of norms and ideas promoted by grassroots actors...In general, the success of the normative mode is dependent on the relatively weak mobilization of adverse interest groups and relatively low costs in terms of relations with the US. These intervening variables vary over time and windows of opportunity may close after key events.
    The third key mode has involved domestic political leadership– i.e. the projection of domestic agendas in Minervian countries onto the global agenda, usually involving multi-level coalitions...This is a top-down mode where political leaders in key states are the prime movers
    Excerpts from Minerva's Rule: Canadian, European, and Japanese Leadership in Global Institution-Building by Julian Dierkes and Yves Tiberghien
    The essay, Minerva's Rule was written by two University of British Columbia professors in May 2007.
    Possible connection to the Bohemian Club and/or occult

    It has been noted that the specific reference to the "owl" may reveal this to be a clue into the philosophies of the Bohemian Club. This secretive organization of political world elite conducts frequent rituals in honor of their owl god, Moloch.
    Hillary Clinton has also been involved in another infamous WikiLeaks email in which she uses State Department email to forward one of her team's reports in which a chicken sacrifice to Moloch is described.
    With fingers crossed, the old rabbit's foot out of the box in the attic, I will be sacrificing a chicken in the backyard to Moloch
    Quote from Hillary Clinton email released on WikiLeaks

    Moloch - Wikipedia
    Moloch is the Biblical name relating to a Canaanite god associated with child sacrifice."

    Adam Weishaupft had originally named his group The Order of Minerva, before changing it later to the Bavarian Order of Illuminati.
