…among our headlines of interest, November into December, 2016…
In the aftermath of what we called “the Roy Cohn coup,” as the FBI and NYPD investigations of Anthony Wiener’s laptop were called off, the independent Internet sleuths continued in their investigation of what has become known as Pizzagate, with varying degrees of skill and validity…

American Everyman – Of Course “Pizzagate” Was a Distraction/Disinfo Psyop from the Beginning
Some provenance on the story: the key of the alleged pizza/pedophile code traces back to an @JaredWyand tweet: Search all Podesta emails for these keywords. We are uncovering a child sex ring. (2:06 PM – 3 Nov 2016) in reference to – and less than an hour following – the announcement of WikiLeaks‘ The Podesta Emails Part 28 – DoJ/FBI/Huma special (1:17 PM – 3 Nov 2016). The code terms were then examined in a now deleted 4chan thread., some of which has been copied into a Nov. 4 YourNewsWire article, WikiLeaks: Pedophile ‘Code Words’ Found In Podesta Emails. We have long considered YourNewsWire to be a disinfo site.
[1/18/17 edit – the 4chan thread is archived here: http://archive.4plebs.org/pol/thread/95902800/ where the code is partially listed at 13:41:57. It is also debated whether “cheese pizza” = child porn originated at 4chan itself and is not a terminology used by practicing pedophiles.]
For a genuine list of terms associated with dark web pedophilia searches, see Vehovar et al…

Be forewarned, it is an extremely unpleasant list to contemplate, but there are no pizzas or pasta or hotdogs among the terms. How then did Jared Wyand get his pizza code and so promptly recognize its purported relevance within an hour of the release of volume 28 of the emails? We don’t know much about this fellow; but as noted by Andrew Anglin at…

Roger Stone has reportedly been in contact with Julian Assange, and as early as August was anticipating an October surprise…
Roll Call (Aug. 9) – Roger Stone Claims To Be In Contact With WikiLeaks Founder
“Well, it could be any number of things. I actually have communicated with Assange,” Stone said. “I believe the next tranche of his documents pertain to the Clinton Foundation but there’s no telling what the October surprise may be.”
There is, moreover, an unnamed intermediary between Stone and Assange who met the latter in London and who therefore could have passed along key details of the emails beyond the surveillance of electronic communication…
Guardian (Nov. 2) – Trump adviser reveals how Assange ally warned him about leaked Clinton emails
Roger Stone, a longtime unofficial adviser to the Republican presidential nominee, was briefed in general terms in advance about the sensitive and embarrassing leaked Democratic emails by an American libertarian who works in the media on the “opinion side”, he told the Guardian in an interview. Stone claims his American source, whom he declined to identify, has met with Assange, the WikiLeaks founder, in London and is a “mutual friend” of Stone and Assange.
The WikiLeaks source, Stone said, is not tied in any way to the Trump campaign but has served as a back channel for Stone, who is an outside adviser to the Republican presidential candidate, allowing the adviser to tweet and comment very broadly prior to some key WikiLeaks disclosures.
Did Stone then mediate with Wyand, cueing him in on the terms to be associated (however spuriously) with pedophilia? The use of the terms in the emails is indeed strange enough, in the awkward context of ‘playing dominos’ on cheese and such; this would suggest that some kind of code is being used. The actual referents of the terms however are unknown; this leaves open an opportunity for a hostile third party to make outrageous suggestions. We can only speculate, but given Stone’s reputation as a master of dirty tricks since the Nixon administration, and given his mutual relationship with Roy Cohn and Donald Trump, we think it not too much of a stretch.
N.Y. Post – Trump won’t pursue charges against Clinton
Is this the first campaign promise Trump is dropping? See our Nov. 18 edition, The Roy Cohn Coup…, for the apparent deal that was struck on the Sunday before the election. Dropping the investigation may have been one of the terms of the deal.
AP (Nov. 27, 1:20 PM)- The Latest: Priebus says Clinton, Trump teams ‘cut a deal’
Donald Trump’s incoming chief of staff suggests Hillary Clinton is backing away from a deal worked out between the two presidential campaigns on how the loser would concede to the winner.
Reince Priebus tells “Fox News Sunday” that Clinton’s team “cut a deal” with Trump’s team specifying that once The Associated Press called the race in favor of one candidate, the other would call within 15 minutes to concede…

Perhaps the DNA sample collected by the Swedish prosecutor Ingrid Isgren at the Ecuadoran embassy “earlier this month” (Reuters) came from a corpse, and the interview conducted is a forgery – oddly, however, the transcript is to be sent to Swedish authorities in mid-December, says the Swedish authority who conducted the interview…
