In the crime no one wants to admit is real, the latest piece of the global child trafficking puzzle is Wayfair. What, if anything, should we make of a furniture store accused of trafficking in missing children?
Reddit user "PrincessPeach1987" brought Wayfair into the public eye with a thread about price discrepancies on cabinets named after missing children. The story went viral with alarming speed, speaking to the undercurrent of public suspicion about human trafficking.
Legacy media spoke so quickly and loudly on the matter as to seem conspicuous. Accusations of "conspiracy theory!" and "tin foil hat brigade!" were as instant and awkward as the knee jerk when a doctor taps a patient's patellar ligament with that funny little hammer.
The Secret Sun is an excellent blog that has written about child trafficking, among many other subjects, over the past several years. A recent post, "(Way)Fair or Foul?", is particularly insightful about the mass media's reaction to Wayfair--including "fact-checking" sites such as Snopes.com, which have relinquished any semblance of objectivity on the matter.
Further, Secret Sun points out Wayfair's close proximity to national children's groups and charities.
The site's author points out that Wayfair employees staged a walkout in 2019 when they discovered the company was manufacturing children's beds to be used at migrant detention camps. Further, Wayfair is connected, via Shah's foundation, to a number of children's groups, including the Boys & Girls Club, which was scrutinized for a child abuse scandal last year.
Now that the initial shock has worn off and the Twitterati, Redditors, and citizen journalists have begun to dig into the issue, many concerning accusations have come to light. Let's take a look.
The video above, from Weekend Warrior, covers most of the bases: scores of items on the wayfair.com website with wildly high prices--simple, standalone steel cabinets worth $200 or $300 at comparable stores listing for over $10,000, all named after children who have recently gone missing.
At first, to many, this sounded like a tasteless prank or a grand coincidence. Wayfair, for its part, issued a decidedly unconvincing rebuttal to the accusations: we didn't explain the pricing, so, um, we're removing them from the website.
"The products in question are industrial grade cabinets that are accurately priced. Recognizing that the photos and descriptions provided by the supplier did not adequately explain the high price point, we have temporarily removed the products from site to rename them and to provide a more in-depth description and photos that accurately depict the product to clarify the price point."Wayfair's press release, 7/10/20
The company has since scrubbed all missing children's names from its products, along with language which, intentionally or not, made its products all the more suspect.
Two friends from their college days at Cornell University co-founded the company. Niraj Shah and Steve Conine had each run their own companies before starting Wayfair, initially known as CSN, out of Conine's home in 2002. Eighteen years later, both men are billionaires. Conine's estimated net worth is variously reported from $1.1 to 2.5 billion, Shah's is $2 to 2.5 billion.
The men have made powerful friends. In 2017, Shah was made a Director on the board of the Federal Reserve Bank in Boston. Further, they have formed relationships with many celebrities who hawk products in Wayfair's online-only marketplace, such as Ellen Degeneres, Jessica Simpson, and Martha Stewart.
It was Degeneres who came under fire earlier this week when items on her own site, EDbyEllen.com, were spotted with similarly outlandish prices to those that made news for Wayfair.
When model numbers for Wayfair products are entered into search engines, images of scantily clad or naked children are returned...but only if you know how to do the search.
"Mouthy Buddha" has recorded several videos about child trafficking, one of which has been removed from YouTube. Here is the link to his latest video on BitChute.com. It's a crucial watch for anyone seeking to learn how to spot evidence of pedophilia.
NOTE: CDMedia strongly discourages any reader from following the steps laid out in the video to actually view the images of children. Simply watching the video should suffice to prove that some Wayfair products recently stood as placeholders for something far more nefarious than furniture, and that a vast internet network for trafficking exists just out of plain view.
The codes, when entered into the Russian version of Google--Yandex.com--return inappropriate images of various children. One such code is "SRC USA". When paired with a model number (also known as a SKU) from certain Wayfair products, images of specific children are returned. It's like an evil menu.
Actor Tom Hanks' name has popped up in the pedogate conversation a number of times. His penchant for photos of lone, lost children's shoes and gloves that he posts online have raised eyebrows for many years, as did his tweets during COVID quarantine in Australia, which contained cryptic messages typed on a Corona typewriter.
Most recently, Hanks has taken to deriding people who don't wear face masks. According to the actor, it's "the least you can do," and he has "no respect" for people who don't wear masks. He even asked, rhetorically, if mask-refusers are "really Americans". Hanks has become a cheerleader for the lockdown crowd. So it was perhaps fitting that one of his Instagram photos would contain the code "SRC USA" in chalk next to a lone glove.
"Symbolism will be their downfall," as the saying goes amongst pedowatchers.
Hanks and Degeneres aren't the only ones in the hot seat, however. Chrissy Teigen, darling of broadsheet gossip columns, former Sports Illustrated swimsuit model and wife of singer John Legend, had a spastic week on social media. Teigen deleted 60,000 tweets on Monday, and blocked one million accounts on Twitter today.
Why? Put simply, she fantasizes about cannibalism. And sex with children. Thanks to archived pages of her Twitter account, the sick musings of the starlet live on. So too do theories on her relationship to Jeffrey Epstein, as Teigen's name appears on the flight logs to Little St. James, a.k.a. "Pedo Island."
It would appear that we are only beginning to unravel what has been generically termed pedogate, and that the rabbit hole is much deeper than anyone had previously imagined. That these revelations have begun to pop up simultaneously with the arrest of Ghislaine Maxwell is beyond compelling.
There's so much signaling and self-indictment.
