Pizzagate with Ben Swann Is Missing- Link:

Ben Swann still appears to be missing from any media footprint...

I'd written articles about him since coming to Steemit in July as perhaps one of the last truly legit journalists. I wrote this because, his articles did not tell you WHAT YOU SHOULD THINK. They simply presented facts that could be found and he encouraged you to make up your own mind and research it yourself. They were not opinion pieces like 99% of the so-called news today.

He had a habit of challenging some controversial topics. As a news anchor on a local FOX channel he coined the show term "Reality Check". This was popular. He would eventually leave FOX and become an Anchor at CBS 46 in Atlanta, Georgia.
He also had his own website called He would crowd source big investigative research and make documentaries about them. They were quite good and extremely informative.

He would talk about things such as:

  • Big Pharmaceutical Companies and the revolving door with the government and the agencies that are supposed to oversee and monitor them.
  • Cannabis for medicinal purposes, and the false claims which he proved showing patents by the government for making things such as CBD Oil a schedule 1 drug (*see the bullet point above*)
  • I am sure he touched on some 9/11 stuff in the past.
  • He also touched on controversy in numerous presidential elections.
  • He would point out problems with bills being pushed through congress.
  • He would talk about Black Lives Matter related issues.
  • He would talk about Terrorist related issues.

He seemed to be fine with this and kept going on about it.

Then one day he posted a Reality Check on #pizzagate. He didn't say Pizzagate is true. He pointed out how some things in the Pizzagate movement actually seemed to correspond to the FBIs own training manuals for identification of pedophiles. Ben didn't say it was true that this was the case. He noted that there had been no official investigation into this. Instead people have simply been saying "it is not true, and is fake news" without a single actual investigation occurring. He showed that there was enough indicators out there that some investigation should occur to find out if there was any truth to the situation or not. This seems responsible to me. It is a lot more responsible than saying something is not true and is fake when there hasn't even been an investigation to prove that.


The Pizzagate Reality Check was pulled fairly quickly after it aired. Another steemit user covered it here, and then a couple of days later it was gone. It has been preserved by other people and can be found all over the place now. I think they call that the Streisand effect.

Then Ben announced he was going to go dark soon and made several Tzu day references which people thought might be code for Sun Tzu's "The Art of War" and he told people to Trust Him.

Not long after that and all its videos were gone, his youtube videos were all deleted, his twitter account was deleted, and his facebook page was deleted. This occurred a couple of months ago.

Those that have followed him for years and considered him one of the best journalists out there have been concerned. I post a similar post to this every so often with an up date. Before I post anything I look for any sign of activity from him.

The only activity we've seen was a brief clip right after this occurred of him at CBS 46. He is still listed as employed there, but there is no proof of activity. At this point even that brief clip might be questionable.

So the question is where is Ben Swann? What happened to him? In many places people say "they got to him", or that he has been "taken somewhere for extra rendition". Depending upon who is saying it they will of course cast the blame at different actors. As far as I can tell it is all speculation.

The concerning thing is I cannot find any activity from him for months. I cannot give you any reason for this to be the case. It is concerning.

It has had the Streisand effect on me. I was one of those waiting for some real investigation into Pizzagate, but I was not speculating about the truth. I was more a spectator. The fact that this ONE video where he didn't actually accuse anyone and simply called for an investigation was sufficient to SCRUB him from the internet makes me believe there must be something to this Pizzagate situation.

It was something that concerned them more than his exposing collusion and corruption all over the place...

Apparently the thing you don't talk about is Pizzagate. You can talk about other things. Talk about that though and you might get disappeared and wiped from history. A modern day book burning, and censorship spree.

So if any of you happen to hear something from Ben Swann please post something. I am one of those very interested. I hope he is okay and that he comes back with some explosive new information on ANYTHING he wants to talk about.

For those of you that don't know Ben Swann I point you to this old Kickstarter which was not purged. There is good information there and you might get a feel for why so many of us really appreciate him.

EDIT - Just to give you an impression of things Ben Swann would cover prior to this. I am going to look at my old steemit posts from before the Pizzagate issue and I'll share some of my titles... or perhaps the keywords in the URL for the Ben Swann documents that are no longer available. He could cover these things and not be silenced. Pizzagate was the straw that broke the camel's back.

CBS Anchor Ben Swann Goes Missing After Reporting On Pizzagate

Missing from social media, that is…

Just days after Ben Swann, a internationally-recognized news anchor for the CBS46 news outlet in Atlanta, became the first major news reporter to report fairly on the alleged Washington pedophilia conspiracy known as Pizzagate, the January 17 video segment was erased from the CBS46 website and Swann took a brief yet unexpected leave of absence from his anchoring position, before returning to his job on January 30, and then promptly informing his online followers via Facebook that he would be deleting all of his social media accounts on February 1, all the while promising, “It is all good. Trust me.”

After the airing of this report, Swann took a leave of absence from work and shortly thereafter posted the following message to his Facebook:

“Hey guys, everyone is asking if things are OK. They are. I will be heading back to CBS46 on Monday but there are going to be some changes. The biggest one will be that this social page will go dark f/n on Tzuday, Feb 1. We’ve been building this project for 6 years and those who have come to know me.. I hope you have also come to trust me.”

(Note the spelling of “Tuesday,” which Swann spells as “Tzuday.” Many internet researchers point out that this is almost certainly a reference to Sun Tzu’s infamous novel “The Art of War,” one of the most famous military strategy books of all time. Also of note is that February 1, the day Swann said he would go dark, was actually a Wednesday, not a Tuesday, as he stated.)

Swann also posted similar warnings on his Twitter account:

Just minutes later, Swann posted an identical message and picture on Twitter, but with one glaring addition: a small logo which appears to be the symbol for the Rebel Alliance from Star Wars, which is the group of good guys who fight against the evil Galactic Empire and Darth Vader. The Rebel Alliance logo can be seen just under the date “Feb 1, 2017”.

And a zoomed-in screenshot of the added Rebel Alliance logo:


Here’s the Rebel Alliance logo for comparison:


And then, *poof*, the entirety of Ben Swann’s social media presence was erased from the internet, including all of his YouTube videos which covered topics other media outlets wouldn’t dare touch. His independent news website,, was also taken offline, now requiring a password to access the site.

It’s also interesting to note that prior to deleting his social media presence, Swann announced via Facebook that he would be cancelling a crowdfunded project about the creation of ISIS and to what extent the U.S. government and their allies were involved in its establishment and rise.

Swann wrote on Facebook: “Hey guys, Ben Swann here… I want to thank everyone who has contributed to the ISIS video crowdfund. Unfortunately, we are not going to be moving forward with that project at this time. EVERYONE who contributed WILL BE REFUNDED THEIR FULL DONATION”


So, what exactly does Swann’s sudden social media blackout and cryptic messages mean? As of yet, no one knows…

Yes sir, I did know of this.

Breaking — West Virginia Lawmakers Invite Persecuted Pro-Second Amendment Counties In Virginia To Join Their State

West Virginia lawmakers introduced legislation to invite persecuted pro Second Amendment Counties to join their state.

The West Virginia Senate adopted a resolution to remind Virginia residents from Frederick County that they have a standing invite — from 1862 — to become part of West Virginia.

West Virginia freedom fighters broke away from Virginia Democrat slave owners during the Civil War.

This week West Virginia has once again invited persecuted Virginia pro 2-A counties to come join their state.

Sounds like a winning plan!

Resolution 8 reads as follows:


(By Delegates Howell, Summers, Shott, Householder, C. Martin, Hott, Graves, Cadle, Barnhart, J. Jeffries, Maynard, Phillips, Foster, Hamrick, Steele, D. Jeffries, Wilson, Waxman, Bartlett, Paynter, Linville, Sypolt, Bibby, Hill, Ellington, Higginbotham, J. Kelly, Mandt, Pack, Dean and P. Martin)

[Introduced January 14, 2020]

Providing for an election to be had, pending approval of the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia, and a majority of qualified citizens voting upon the proposition prior to August 1, 2020, for the admission of certain counties and independent cities of the Commonwealth of Virginia to be admitted to the State of West Virginia as constituent counties, under the provisions of Article VI, Section 11 of the Constitution of West Virginia

Whereas, The Legislature of West Virginia finds that in 1863, due to longstanding perceived attitudes of neglect for the interests of the citizens of Western Virginia, and a studied failure to address the differences which had grown between the counties of Western Virginia and the government at Richmond, the Commonwealth of Virginia was irretrievably divided, and the new State of West Virginia was formed; and

Whereas, Such division occurred as the Trans-Allegheny portions of Virginia perceived that they suffered under an inequitable measure of taxation by which they bore a disproportionate share of the tax burden; and

Whereas, That this perception was further compounded by the effects of a scheme of representation by which Trans-Allegheny Virginia was not allowed to have its proper and equitable share of representation in the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, That this arrangement arguably resulted in the tax dollars of Trans-Allegheny Virginia being used to enrich the Tidewater through internal improvements which did not benefit the people of Western Virginia, while the people of the Trans-Allegheny had little to no say in how their tax dollars were allocated; and

Whereas, Though this course led to an irreconcilable division, and the subsequent formation of West Virginia, yet, the longstanding peaceful cooperation between this State and the Commonwealth of Virginia is a sign that such separation, undertaken even under the most challenging and onerous of circumstances, can, with the passage of time, yield lasting results which are beneficial to both sides; and

Whereas, In the intervening years, the same neglect for the interests of many of the remaining counties of the Commonwealth of Virginia has allegedly been evidenced by the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, Particularly, many citizens of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont contend that an inequitable measure of taxation exists by which they bear a disproportionate share of the present tax burden of the Commonwealth; and

Whereas, The people of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont also believe that, currently, a scheme of representation exists by which the citizens of Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont do not have a proper share of representation in the government at Richmond; and, consequently

Whereas, The people of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont believe that their tax dollars are used to enrich the Tidewater and Northern Virginia through internal improvements which do not benefit the people of these other parts of Virginia, while the people of these other parts of Virginia have little to no say in how their tax dollars are allocated; and

Whereas, In recent days, these tensions have been compounded by a perception of contempt on the part of the government at Richmond for the differences in certain fundamental political and societal principles which prevail between the varied counties and cities of that Commonwealth; and

Whereas, In the latest, and most evident, in this string of grievances, the government at Richmond now seeks to place intolerable restraints upon the rights guaranteed under the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution to the citizens of that Commonwealth; and

Whereas, The Legislative body of West Virginia believes that this latest action defies the wise counsel which has come down to us in the august words of our common Virginia Founders: as the government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of that tribune of liberty, Patrick Henry-who stated to the Virginia Ratifying Convention in 1788 that “The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of a Signer of the Declaration and premier advocate of American independence, Richard Henry Lee-who stated in The Federal Farmer that “To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of that zealous guardian of our inherent rights, George Mason-who stated that “To disarm the people…[i]s the most effectual way to enslave them”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of the declaimer of our independence and theoretician of our freedoms, Thomas Jefferson-who stated in his first draft of the Virginia Constitution, that “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms”; and

Whereas, The Boards of Supervisors of many Virginia counties and the Councils of many Virginia cities have recognized this dangerous departure from the doctrine of the Founders on the part of the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, These Boards of Supervisors and Councils have passed resolutions refusing to countenance what they affirm are unwarranted and unconstitutional measures by that government to infringe the firearm rights of Virginians; and

Whereas, The actions of the government at Richmond undertaken since the recent general election have, regrettably, resulted in unproductive contention and escalating a lamentable state of civic tension; and

Whereas, That, as has been proven in numerous instances, such as have been observed internationally in more recent times with the peaceful dissolutions of Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Union, and the creation of South Sudan, or, earlier in Virginia’s own history, with the formation of Kentucky, the peaceful partition of neighboring peoples can occur, and, is often very beneficial to both sides in reducing tensions and improving the tenor of discourse over ongoing political and societal differences; and

Whereas, Article VI, Section 11 of The Constitution of the State of West Virginia explicitly permits additional territory to be admitted into, and become part of this state, with the consent of the Legislature and of a majority of the qualified voters of the state; and

Whereas, In a spirit of conciliation, the Legislature of West Virginia hereby extends an invitation to our fellow Virginians who wish to do so, to join us in our noble experiment of 156 years of separation from the government at Richmond; and, we extend an invitation to any constituent county or city of the Commonwealth of Virginia to be admitted to the body politic of the State of West Virginia, under the conditions set forth in our state Constitution, specifically, with the consent of a majority of the voters of such county or city voting upon such proposition; and we hereby covenant that their many grievances shall be addressed, and, we further covenant with them that their firearms rights shall be protected to the fullest extent possible under our Federal and State Constitutions; and

Whereas, Providing that the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia shall give its assent to any county or independent city presently part of the Commonwealth of Virginia having the opportunity and ability to do so, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia.
