James Achilles Alefantis And His Comet Ping Pong Network



James Achilles Alefantis And His Comet Ping Pong Network

Persons of Interest ? James Achilles Alefantis aka jimmycomet at Comet Ping Pong

The following post is a compilation of suspicious facts regarding James Achilles Alefantis

by ausbitbank

My research into the global pedophilia network being exposed by wikileaks and others keeps bringing me back to James. I feel that this information is in the public interest, and everything here was obtained legally through publicly available sources.

All files are backed up securely, and almost all images and links referenced here are linked to an archived copy showing the original source url and timestamps collected.

Getting this information together has been a group effort between many independent and mostly anonymous researchers freely sharing resources between wikileaks/4chan/8chan/twitter/reddit/multiple discord servers and .onion sites .

You can find a lot more general information on my previous post – “Podestaleak , Pedoring & Cheesybay research dump Part 1” .

This post was adopted from reddit here by “PleadingtheYiff” , and written permission was given to archive this on the steem blockchain.

This thread will continue to evolve as new information is discovered

James Achilles Alefantis

Mr. Alefantis is the owner of the Washington DC pizza parlor Comet Ping Pong. There are disturbing indications that Mr. Alefantis is running some form of pedophile ring that involves quite a few public figures in Washington D.C. It would appear that he is the “Achilles heel” for all these people of stature.

Since the investigation began, Mr. Alefantis has deleted many of his posts and set his social media to private. We have archived the entirety of his online presence however. Links posted here are both archives and screenshots I took while helping to investigate.

First I will discuss Alefantis’ links to powerful people, then outline the preponderance of evidence that he is a pedophile and uses Comet Ping Pong as a front for his sex trafficking ring.

I. Connections between Power Brokers and Alefantis

David Brock, director of Correct the Record

James Alefantis is the owner of pizza joint Comet Ping Pong, he is the romantic partner of former CTR director David Brock. Here is a link confirming this and showing them caught up with another individual in some kind of blackmail love triangle:


Here is a photo of Brock on Alefantis’ Instagram:

David is also the former director the Bitcoin Foundation and is a confirmed pedophile as exposed in past court cases and the documentary “An Open Secret“. This alone should have the crypto crowd paying attention to this.

Hillary Clinton

Here is a letter Alefantis posted from Hillary thanking him for helping with a fundraiser that involved the Podestas:

An FEC search also shows payments made to Alefantis from the Clinton Campaign and pro Clinton PACS



Barack Obama

Here is a photo Alefantis posted showing Obama playing ping pong with a young boy:

Obama has also been identified in the Wikileaks Podesta dump as having held phone banks at Comet Ping Pong’s location:



Alefantis is also listed in White House records as having visited a few times:

George Soros

Yes, George Soros even is involved with this pizza parlor. He is listed as a major donor to the American Bridge 21st Century PAC:


This PAC is on record with the FEC as having made several donations to Comet Ping Pong:




Marina Abramovic

Alefantis appears to have some form of relationship to spirit cooking “artist” Marina Abramovic as he references her in his instagram:

He also posted a photo which appears to possibly make a Moloch reference:

John and Tony Podesta

Here is Alefantis posting a photo of Tony Podestas house:

You may remember this “Arch of Agony” statue from the house of Tony Podesta, as seen in this Washington Post article:


Keep in mind that this house contains art showing child abuse by Biljana Djurdjevic:




Podesta e-mails make mention of Comet Ping Pong, “family-friendly” restaurant/venue with ping-pong for kids:



Arun Rao

So far the best link I have between James and Arun is that on instagram they both keep liking the same pictures of toddlers.

According to his linkedin profile Arun Rao is :

Chief, Southern Division
United States Department of Justice – United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Maryland

Comet Pizza is technically in Washington DC, but is practically on the border of Chevy Chase, Maryland, which is Rao’s jurisdiction.

Violent crime prosecution priorities in Greenbelt include using FEDERAL RACKETEERING, CONSPIRACY and firearms statutes to disrupt violent gangs and reduce gang activity. The scope of these gang prosecutions ranges from local to national and INTERNATIONAL.

Greenbelt prosecutors also investigate and prosecute SIGNIFICANT PUBLIC CORRUPTION AND FRAUD CASES. Public corruption cases involve state and local government officials and employees of the many federal agencies located in the Southern Division.

Like the Major Crimes Section in Baltimore, the Greenbelt office prosecutes a wide array of other federal offenses, including CHILD PORNOGRAPHY, bank robberies, immigration violations, and counterfeiting.

The Southern Division office also handles thousands of misdemeanor cases that occur on areas of exclusive federal jurisdiction such as the Baltimore-Washington Parkway, the National Institutes of Health, and MILITARY BASES.”

In 2010, Arun Rao was on the prosecution team that helped to convict Cecil M. Graham for possession of Child Pornography.

“Majestic Ape” aka Amanda Kleinman

Video recorded during Sasha Lord’s birthday party at Comet Ping Pong. Individual with the microphone wearing a wig and ski mask is Amanda Kleinman (aka Majestic ape). Words used are very strange, video was deleted within an hour of it being found on youtube and had to be archived and reuploaded. She uploaded it a second time (as unlisted) and after a day or two switched it to private. Any remaining copies on youtube are reuploads and may or may not get taken down with DMCA notices.


Here’s Kleinman in the same outfit.


Backup: http://archive.is/UQOby

In the party video, Amanda Kleinman references “secret pizza”. This same term comes up in the description of a film about a “private island” that was produced by Jame Alefantis.

On a whim, Eve, a young Swedish traveler, accepts an invitation from Peter to vacation on his family’s private island off the coast of New England. As a series of unexpected delays prevent other guests from arriving, Eve discovers that she has little in common with the increasingly erratic Peter. Gradually the idyllic natural beauty of the island gives way and Eve finds herself trapped in a state of surreality punctuated by bizarre visions, dimensional shifting and secret pizza.


Amanda Kleinman’s band “Heavy Breathing” has a music video that references pedophilia. Most of the “Schtick” for her band is intentionally being provocative, weird, and awkward.

Get served at Comet Ping Pong, a hipster-heavy pizza parlor in the Upper Northwest with rough concrete walls, bathrooms hidden behind secret panels, and table tennis galore. Thin crust pies from the wood-burning oven are as much of an attraction as the regularly scheduled live bands.

DO NOT look at the following image if you want to sleep anytime soon.

From the above, Amanda Kleinman might have some familiarity with “Eli” and may have been to the one to make his costume. Anything beyond those two things is supposition, but extremely creepy supposition.

Cory Woolman

I figured out who some of the kids that James Alefantis posts about are. The photos with identical children are tagged with or liked by @ccwoolman. One of those posts, her instagram profile photo, and linked in profile excerpt are included above.

She was the Event planner for Comet Ping Pong in the time frame the instagram posts were made (2012 i.e. 206 weeks ago). She now lives in Portland. She would be an important person to interview as a character witness for James Alefantis.

There are four other unique children amongst the photos posted that I do not know the identities of.

Susan Alefantis

Sister of James Alefantis. Wrote a letter in support of Christopher Kloman

Christopher Kloman was sentenced to 43 years in prison for mutliple counts of child molestation.

Also on the list is Kenneth Starr



II. Implications James Alefantis is running a pedophile ring out of Comet Ping Pong


A. Sexual references made in Comet Ping Pong and by Alefantis online

First. Comet Ping Pong advertises itself as a “family place for parents and their kids”

This website here shows that a reviewer mentioned the presence of hidden doors in the establishment (it also revealed that the Food Network show host Guy Fieri has done an episode there). Link and screenshot of relevant portion here:


The Washington Post has also run a story revealing that Comet Ping Pong has been accused by a Washington Neighborhood Commissioner of being a “haven for rape and murder:”



Despite it’s claim to be “family friendly” the restaurant has a number of disturbing sexual references inside and James Alefantis makes a number of references to pedophelia both overtly and implicitly online. Alefantis actually posted a photo of an “art” photo piece which appears to show a man vaginally penetrating what could be an underage girl. I have decided not to share it here but it has been archived. He has since deleted the photo.

EDIT: People suggested I post an edited version of the photo. Here it is, with all NSFW parts removed:

EDIT: users saying this actually might is a self portrait of the artist and his pornstar wife. But I still think it’s inappropriate that the owner of a “kid friendly” establishment was posting hardcore pornography to his Instagram at the very least.

Here is a photo showing the inside of Comet Ping Pong where graffiti saying “shut up and fuck” and “Amen” are clearly visible:


He posted a disturbing image of a little girl taped down to a table in Comet Ping Pong:

He joked about purchasing infants:

Here he posted a photo featuring a man wearing a shirt that says “I love children” in French:

Made all the more disturbing when you break down James’s name like this anon, it could be a pseudonym and just another way he’s been openly bragging in plain sight.

Here he reference a “boom boom room” which sounds disturbingly like a play on the phrase “boom boom” used by foreign prostitutes to describe sex:

More on the above photo:


A photo showing children engaged in some strange ceremony or ritual:


Another odd photo someone tagged at Comet Ping Pong:

Here Alefantis posted a photo of a man with a yellow bead necklace around the head of a young boy. A quick search reveals yellow sex bracelets imply analingus, and the hashtag chickenlovers in the instagram post is a pedophile reference to adult men who are attracted to underage boys. Links below:


This 3 minute youtube clip focusses mostly on the Podestas, but includes some footage of a performance at Comet Ping Pong that doesn’t seem remotely “family friendly”



B. References to pizza in a way that is either sexual or involved children

Alefantis and others clearly use the term “pizza” to allude, at the very least to sex (I believe it to mean sex with minors). Here are a number of references from Alefantis and others tagged at Comet Ping Pong making sexual innuendos about pizza and children:


C. Innuendos to systematic child abuse and trafficking

Comet Ping Pong’s posters for the “concerts” played at their venue show references to abuse and pedophilia.

Here is an poster which may refer to the out of body experience children have when experiencing extreme abuse:



Here is one showing a band called the “Lolitas” played at Comet Ping Pong:

More disturbingly Alefantis has posted a number of photos showing very suspicious rooms, construction of underground chambers and openly joked about “filling them” with his friends on Instagram.

Here is a photo Alefantis posted showing men digging a hole. Him and his friends joke about “filling it” and a commenter claims his hole has “been full for quite some time now.” They also joke about doing a “line up” at the hole in the near future.


Another photo he posted appears to shows a large freezer, which could appear to be a location used for some kind of imprisonment or torture. Commenters on the photo joke “rinse it off when you’re done” and “kill room.”

The man who commented “kill room” on the above photo has a number of images on his Instagram appearing to show he makes child sized coffins:


Here is a disturbing Wikileaks email where a “torture chamber” is referenced:


Finally, people have noticed that pro-Hillary groups own ALL the properties on the block where Comet Ping Pong is located.

As noted in the previous picture, some of the company logos of nearby groups who have offices near Comet Ping Pong look similar to known images used by pedophiles as per this FBI document:


Suspicious Protected Section on Cometpingpong.com

The official website has a protected section here – http://www.cometpingpong.com/protectedAn anonymous researcher submitted this image after digging further :

Lists of randomized filenames that require a “DL Key” to access…


Edit: Aaand its gone.

Evidence for an underground connection below the block

I screenshotted and illustrated a google map of the area , the thin red line is the current active subway line. Comet Pizza sits right at the end of an old subway branch

View Full Size
If you extend the line you can see it passes exactly under comet ping pong:

There is an “artists space” now being run in the re-opened tunnels down the road at dupont circle – http://www.dupontunderground.org/

This re-opened section of the old tunnels reaches towards the comet pizza block but officially stops short.

It’s not that far below ground, either :

The first art exhibition that turned up ? Re-Ball : http://www.re-ball.org/
Lots of ping-pong balls for the kids to play with ..

Photo of jimmy digging up a basement (note the comment saying “holiday”, but the same brand ping ping table as comet in the background:

NEITHER of the the businesses that James Alefantis owns has ever filed a construction permit. Any work they did to renovate or improve these businesses was done without public record. If the instagram photo is of either establishment, that work was done covertly and illegally.

It’s yet another interesting coincidence that on street view you can see the building right next door is signed “mccullough construction” that list multiple reinforced underground structures on their website..

And here is a better version of the local map showing that the entire block is owned by clinton supporters :

This site has historic information about washington dc tunnels systems showing the massive size of the network that is officially admittedhttp://whitehouse.gov1.info/tunnel/

I’ve also got an interesting documentary about the abandoned tunnel system – linked via ghostsofdc.org which is packed full of historic maps that may be useful to researchers.

One snippet that caught my eye, in this neighbouring abandoned underground tunnel we have an old “pizza-express” sign :

And this is a reminder (for some) that the layout of washington dc is rich with symbolism, including its roads and subway lines. Whats the bet this block sits in one of one these lines ?

James is listed on IMDB as a producer

You can find his IMDB profile here – http://www.imdb.com/name/nm5025616
He’s associated publicly with these movies :

On a whim, Eve, a young Swedish traveler, accepts an invitation from Peter to vacation on his family’s private island off the coast of New England. As a series of unexpected delays prevent other guests from arriving, Eve discovers that she has little in common with the increasingly erratic Peter. Gradually the idyllic natural beauty of the island gives way and Eve finds herself trapped in a state of surreality punctuated by bizarre visions, dimensional shifting and secret pizza.

  • 2013 Chapel Perilous (Short) (associate producer)
  • 2012 Me at the Zoo (Documentary) (co-producer)

Conclusion and next focus

James is deeply connected and like many others being exposed by these leaks (and their own public bragging) they seem to be immune to investigation under the current political system. The more I investigate, the more frustrated and disgusted I am at how many of these people seem to be openly bragging about their crimes.

The interweb detective squad is still investigating James, but whats already been uncovered is surely worth a deeper look by LEO especially given all of the confirmed corruption and pedophilia within his social and professional network.

Please make sure you see my last research dump (and the videos) for the full context of the situation
.If anyone has anything to add, pop it in the comments below – and I welcome anonymous comments and additions via @the.masses or encrypted mail to purplegreen@protonmail.ch

For my next focus, I’d like to work to connect these groups back home to Australia and their influences past and present on our government and media.

I have some recent revelations from the wikileaks dumps, and it’s now approaching the 10 year anniversary since my own personal whistleblower dramas here in Australia – so It feels like about time to drop something else on an uncensorable blockchain 😉
