"Pizzagate" Explodes After Man Arrested In Comet Restaurant Shooting

Tyler Durden's picture

Pizzagate took a turn for the even more bizarre on Sunday, as a man with an assault rifle walked into Comet Ping Pong to "self-investigate" the Baltimore, Maryland, pizza parlor that internet conspiracy theorists say is at the center of an international child sex ring run by prominent Democrats. 28-year-old Edgar Maddison Welch, of Salisbury, N.C., reportedly fired the rifle at least once inside the restaurant but no one was injured.

As HeatSt.com reports, Washington, D.C., police arrested the man Sunday afternoon, after restaurant employees saw a man, described as being in his early 20s and carrying an “assault rifle,” work his way through the dining room and then attempt to enter the staff work area at the back of the building.

Restaurant workers acted quickly, getting staff and patrons—including a number of children—to safety and dialing 911. Authorities were quick to respond. They subdued and arrested the man and secured the restaurant. No one was injured.

 The Washington Post noted that the incident caused panic, with several businesses going into lockdown as police swarmed the neighborhood after receiving the call shortly before 3 p.m.

Police said 28-year-old Edgar Maddison Welch, of Salisbury, N.C., walked in the front door of Comet Ping Pong and pointed a firearm in the direction of a restaurant employee. The employee was able to flee and notify police. Police said Welch proceeded to discharge the rifle inside the restaurant.


The man told police he had come to the restaurant to “self-investigate” the election-related conspiracy theory.


Police said in addition to the assault rifle, they also recovered two firearms inside the restaurant; an additional weapon was recovered in Welch’s car. Bomb-sniffing dogs and at least one armored vehicle were present at the scene.


He has been charged with assault with a dangerous weapon.

DC Police Press Release on the arrest...

One can't help but wonder, as Congress considers a bill “to counter active measures by the Russian Federation to exert covert influence,” whether this is yet another false flag to raise awareness of what is a possible outcome of "fake news"?

JeffC on Youtube is right! Google has removed the entire "news" tab about "comet pizza ping pong".

And also on the subject of Pizzagate.. could it be a good thing the MSM is not covering this? I mean it seems like the alt media has just been playing defense so far with them and their "stories". Maybe it's time that the alt media grew a pair of their own, time for us to make our own stories? Just ignore the MSM, maybe check in on them now and then to see how their fruitless hunger strike is going?

They're just playing the fools, keeping this non-story at the top of the page as cover.  For what are they covering is the real question, but, few will ask.


thebigunit's picture

I'm SURE there's a conspiracy.

I don't know what it is, but they're hiding the evidence.

It's such a big conspiracy that that they have coopted the best people to make sure that nothing leaks.

The fact that nothing has leaked proves that it's a REALLY REALLY big conspiracy.

LN's picture

"I'm SURE there's a conspiracy."  Just one?

"It's such a big conspiracy that that they have coopted the best people to make sure that nothing leaks."  The "BEST PEOPLE"?  All they have is second string, or was that third, or fourth.  They are good at throwing smoke, it's all they know.

"The fact that nothing has leaked proves that it's a REALLY REALLY big conspiracy."  It's all out there, the only thing that really matters is where we focus.  The game is being played right before our eyes, yet we do not see it.  Weird huh?

By the time investigators (where are those 650K emails?)  get to the bottom of things, things will have been returned as if nothing out of the ordinary ever happened.

Right now anyone poking around in this feels like Sgt Friday...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ca8JhECUDq0

Oh, and I doubt Tony Wiener's life is worth a plumb nickle now days. This has all the signs of a real deep cleaning scrub job.

This FALSE FLAG OP is a VERY serious development!




False Flag Just Staged At Comet Ping Pong Pizza Restaurant To Shut Down Alt Media

.they also recovered two firearms inside the restaurant

Who other than the False Flag operator had firearms inside the restaraunt and why is the answer to this not being reported?

Crash Overide's picture

What the fuck is an assult rifle?

Whoa Dammit's picture


There were kids in the restaurant. What kind of parent would take their kids to that place?

In previous MSM articles defending the place, the restaurant supposedly has 40 employees? Given the booming DC economy, and the low wages, who would work there?

Who did the 2 guns found in the rstaurant belong to ? I highly doublt that a NC country boy would leave them lying about, and since he couldn't easily stash an AK, why would he bother trying to hide the other 2 if they were in fact (doubtful) his guns?

They are very clear that there's, "no evidence of the so-called abuse, no investigation and no victims"....

Usually, the investigation produces the evidence, but in this case all the effort is in burying the evidence.


Tell me, have the Pedo bros been investigated in the disappearance of Madeline McCann?  Has anyone investigated the rumor they were a block and a half away from the scene of her disappearance?  Was Anthony Wiener also there? If you want to prove it's a conspiracy, how about starting their.

How about Jimmy Savile and his charities that funneled kids to FUCK, anyone looking in the his foundations, or his accomplices?  No evidence of abuse there either?

Were is Jerry Sandusky and his "charities", jail you say?

How about Bryan Singer, who would bring young boys to his nude pool parties and force them to drop to their knees and suck his dick at poolside for all to see.

former teen model Michael Egan filed a lawsuit against director Bryan Singer, accusing him of drugging and raping him in California and Hawaii in the late 1990s.

Egan has now accused former Disney TV president David Neuman and former BBC Worldwide America president Garth Ancier of sexually abusing him when he was a teen model.

Egan says LA design firm head Gary Goddard, who's also produced off-Broadway shows, sexually assaulted him

'The suggestion that the FBI ignored a minor victim, or evidence involving the sexual victimization of a child, is ludicrous,' FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said in a statement.

it’s about disarming these pedophiles,' Bonnie Mound, Egan's weeping mother, told reporters.

I'd rather #pizzagate kept a low profile till 20th Jan. Same as the Clinton Crime Foundation.

The reason?

Until then the DoJ is totally compromised. Podesta was CoS to Obama. If any investigation breaks before inauguration, that cunt Obumfuck just takes out his "pardon pad" and its game over for any justice.

If the law refuses to provide justice, she has other ways of working her magic.

Spot on LN.

Here's John Podesta's Muckety Map. Happy Raking!



And let's not forget his brother Tony. You don't become a potent D.C.'s lobbyist if you don't know the best pizza place in town.

Probably cover to run a cleanup operation and bury/destroy any "leftover pizza" in the basement.

Will probably close comet pizza before citizen investigators get more evidence.

Pizzagate, talking about an internet con artist that the naive believes. A successful “fake news” that the ideologues and propagandists seek to provoke discourse in a "heads I win tails you lose" manner. They pray at the weakest members of a society that is at the blink of collapse. These ideologues and propagandists will create justification to the naive to do evil. They will say whatever lies it takes to attract the naive. And the irony is that these ideologues do it in plain sight.

This "pizzagate" thing - if true - is so horrific that you can't even joke about it.  All I want to see happen is the perpetrators put up against a wall and shot - after undergoing the most agonizing torture, of course.

Can't blame him, he is investigating something the police or FBI never will becauase it involves everyone at the top.

Transformer's picture

Probably a failed false flag.  The guy was supposed to start shooting.  Goal being complete federal takeover of Comet so that the place and all connecting tunnels, etc. could be completely scrubbed of all evidence by Jan 20.

For some reason his programming failed.

This is a very serious message to JW's, Evangelicals and Pentecostals>

People know you guys and gals gangstalk "alleged" pedophiles.

Do you really need your Pastor to tell you to take a closer look at PIZZAGATE.


Crush the cube's picture

PI AZZ Gate, Pi is symbolic of a power source that never ends.  They're accessing power through a gate via the children.  And you can guess how, the middle word of the anagram, the old third eye.  Probably burns up the kids in the process just like sandy hook.  Want to bet they tear the whole structure down and destroy the radioactive gateway evidence just like they did at the sandy hook school.

Mr. Universe's picture

And so the police refer to this as an "fictitious online conspiracy theory" WTF?? They never heard of it, it doesn't exist and nobody made this up because it's fictitious. Oh, and we never had this conversation.

You better believe the word is out, there is no Pizzagate.

Thats just their "official" response, i'd wager that the police would do something about it off duty... nobody likes child killers.

Ballin D's picture

The same police who accused him of having an assault rifle.  I'd be willing to bet he didn't point that gun at anyone and the shot didn't go off until a pedo started struggling to take it from him. Or at least there isn't any footage proving the pedophiles account
