Comet Ping Pong is a popular pizza restaurant located less than 5 miles from the White House.

On its Facebook page, Comet Ping Pong has this odd cartoon (below) and describes itself as a “family style restaurant” that’s “good for kids”.

Below are exterior and interior pics of Comet Ping Pong:

Comet Ping Pong is not just a “family style” popular pizzeria, it is politically prominent as well.

The pizzeria’s owner is James Alefantis, a former boyfriend of Clinton crony and Democratic Party operative David Brock of Media Matters.

Though a mere pizza restaurateur, GQ magazine in 2012 had Alefantis as 49th among the 50 most powerful people in Washington, D.C. — along with such luminaries as House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (no. 1), Hillary Clinton (no. 5), Gen. David Petraeus (no. 7), Rep. Paul Ryan (no. 21), Democrat lobbyist and brother of John Podesta, Tony Podesta, (no. 23), Jake Sullivan, Director of Policy Planning and member of the 7th Floor Group in the State Department (no. 33), and Sen. Marco Rubio (no. 43).

For a “mere” pizzeria owner, James Alefantis visited the Obama White House four times. One visit was an overnighter in which Alefantis’ group of four included a male porn star.

The Democratic Party also holds fundraisers in Comet Ping Pong, as indicated by an October 4, 2008 email Alefantis ([email protected]) sent John Podesta, chair of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, about a recent fundraiser:

“Great show! Great speech. Raised over 40 grand. My only regret is I did not make you a nice pizza. When can I?”

Below is a screenshot I took of the email from WikiLeaks:

Given its political prominence, it is all the more curious that on February 4, 2011, “family style restaurant” Comet Ping Pong hosted in its backroom a performance by an obscure satanic rock band, Monotonix — a Tel Aviv “garage” rock band that left Israel for the U.S. and Europe after being banned from most of the venues in Tel Aviv. Wikipedia describes the band as “known for setting themselves and their equipment on fire, stealing drinks from audience members to pour on themselves, turning their shows into frenzied dance parties” and “playing shows raucous enough to result in the power being shut off or the police called in.”

Below are two pics of the Monotonix performance at Comet Ping Pong. The first pic shows the three Monotonix “musicians” half-naked, frighteningly disheveled, and looking insane and/or demon possessed:

In the second pic, among Monotonix’s audience were satanists making the devil’s-horns hand sign, and an S-M fetishist in an orange head-mask:

About 1½ months after Monotonix’s performance in Comet Ping Pong, the band announced on Myspace that they had disbanded.

One would think that all this would merit some attention from investigative journalists and the mainstream media.

Not so.

Why is that?
