Since joining Steemit at the end of 2016, I’ve seen a lot of internet sleuths come and go. Some arrive from other platforms looking for rewards only to leave a few short months later when the market flips. Others, however, do not come for the rewards but come to etch their work permanently on to the Steem blockchain, increase its staying power and guard against censorship. I’ve seen a lot of talented researchers over the years but rarely have I seen a researcher with so much skill, dedication to craft, and an ability to clearly breakdown complicated narratives into digestible pieces for the common reader. With Jeffrey Epstein back in the headlines on a daily basis I think it's time to give credit where credit is due and shine a light on some fantastic research from @rebelskum of the, now defunct, Pizzagate.wiki (more on this below). When @rebelskum arrived on the platform, I was the first to greet him as I was aware of his posts on Voat.co, a sort of clone of reddit.com, where pizzagate researchers had been forced to move to after the banning of r/pizzagate. Before the reddit ban hammer came down, r/pizzagate had over 20,000 subscribers and was ground-zero for PG related work, a real hive of DIY research. What I wasn't aware of at the time was the depth of research being assembled by the team at the Pizzagate.wiki where @rebelskum was an administrator. I soon realized that this researcher was the real McCoy and always provided detailed evidence to back up his work.
The research from @rebelskum, aka Ryan Zimmerman, and the team at the Pizzagate Wiki garnered a lot of attention on Voat.co for their in-depth research and analysis. Of course deep dives included the prime PG suspects from the Podestas and the Clinton crime syndicate, to billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, to historical accounts like the Franklin Scandal and the Dutroux Affair, all well organized and painstakingly sourced. US defense contractor Dyncorp with links to human trafficking in numerous countries spanning several decades was also featured on the Wiki. In early January 2017, the pizzagate.wiki Dyncorp page came under spam attack in an attempt to take down the website. Wiki admins traced the origins of the attack and linked it to an IP address in Waltham, Massachusetts - headquarters of none other than defense contractor Raytheon. Evidence of Dyncorp and Raytheon partnership, here.
It appears that Dyncorp was none too pleased with some of the connections the Wiki was making between murdered researcher Monica Petersen in Haiti and her colleague Claude Estree.
" Fun fact: As many know, Claude D'Estree, who is murdered researcher Monica Petersen's colleague and is the most outspoken about her not investigating the Clinton Foundation, previously worked for DynCorp. However, D'Estree didn't just work for DynCorp - he was their direct link to the US Attorney's Office during DynCorp's biggest child trafficking scandal which took place in Bosnia in 1999. The US Attorney's Office that should have been prosecuting DynCorp, but never did. That whole incident was so big it literally got turned into a Hollywood movie called the Whistleblower with Rachel Weisz."
The Wiki remained resilient in the face of these attacks and continued research for the first half of 2017. However, the website was removed/suspended sometime in the summer of 2017 and @rebelskum also 'went dark' from Steemit, Voat and Twitter at about the same time. To my knowledge, The Pizzagate.Wiki has been down ever since and awareness of this fact began to sound alarm bells for some in the research community. Followers of Zimmerman became concerned for his safety and attempted to reach out to him. After several months of complete silence, @rebelskum briefly reappeared in November 2017 to release "The Devil of Little St. James" a documentary Ryan had been quietly working on about Jeffrey Epstein.
Little Saint James, known to some as pedophile island, is a small island in the Caribbean where Epstein would allegedly host orgies with high-profile politicians and celebrities. Guests were flown to the island aboard Epstein's private Jet - The Lolita Express. Names from the pilot's log book include; Bill Clinton, Larry Summers, Alan Dershowitz, Kevin Spacey, Doug Band, Chris Tucker and many more were said to have flown with Epstein. Some of the lesser known names included in the Black Book with notable connections to Epstein were detailed in a series called "Stringing Cheese" (a reference to pizzagate) by @rebelskum.
In 2018, the Miami Herald published a powerful series called "Perversion of Justice" and brought convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein's scandalous case to a wider audience. This is an excellent series which includes previously unpublished information on the case and likely played a role in fostering the newest charges against Epstein by the FBI. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NYLQoNmxEu8 This exposé certainly deserves all the awards and accolades that are attributed to the investigation. There's also a lot of overlap with @rebelskum's research demonstrating how dialed-in our fellow Steemian was with the case. In particular, his detailed examination of the court filings and Epstein's non-prosecution deal. In addition, while the Herald focuses in on the finer details of the case, Ryan Zimmerman examines an overarching narrative not only by connecting Epstein with a greater number of politically connected individuals but also draws parallels to the Franklin Scandal, the Finders Cult, the Dutroux Affair and Dyncorp's dark history. While people may be shocked to learn of Epstein's case today, none of this is new to those that were involved in pizzagate/pedogate research in 2016-2017. Epstein's case was always a focal point.
Jane Doe No. 43's complaint against Jeffrey Epstein and his associates contains shocking and detailed facts. This document, upheld in court, explains that Jeffrey Epstein continued to sexually assault underage girls during his prosecution. This would completely nullify his non-prosecution agreement which led to his reduced sentence and terms leading to his present freedom. Jane Doe No. 43's story is very similar to those of Jane Doe No. 4 & 6, but is notably far more detailed, un-redacted and especially notable for its naming of others besides Epstein as defendants. These other defendants include Ghislaine Maxwell, Sarah Kellen, Lesley Groff and Natalya Malyshev.
Since posting the documentary on Epstein, @rebelskum has gone dark once again and the Pizzagate.wiki is still down. In one of his final posts to Steem/Steemit he announced that he was working on a follow up documentary called "Black Hydra" on ritual abuse involving world leaders. With any luck, we may see a triumphant return out of the blue from this legendary researcher, just like when he released the Epstein doc. Let's keep our fingers crossed. I'll be doing a follow-up to this post in the near future as there's some more amazing work from this researcher well worth sharing. Wherever you are Ryan, we hope you're safe and still fighting the good fight. We miss you man! Big Respect, V
Last but not least, I have a little treat for those of you who are frustrated that the Wiki is no longer available - There are still some mirrors that are accessible!

Together we can defeat the censors by embracing decentralized platforms.
That was really impressive work, @v4vapid, I can only hope that @rebelskum knows how to take care of himself at least as good as he knows how to research&expose “elite” crimes. BTW, we have here another man with a nice record of exposing important things, who would deserve more support — @leecamp:
I wish I hadn't powered up so I could bidbot this to trending.
I deeply appreciate the links to the missing wiki. I also miss @rebelskum.
Thanks very much for this excellent and informative post.
Did you catch the mean mug and dual one finger salutes in drumpf's pic with gm in the first video?
Ah great, thanks. I recently resteemed his post about the Devil documentary and will include aspects in a video I make on Epstein soon. There's so much to go through, I want to take my time. I'll definitely reference your work here too. Resteemed!
