Elder Patriot – James O’Keefe is a pioneer in the field of video journalism. O’Keefe is a new breed of investigative reporter who doesn’t rely on second hand, anonymous sources when filing his exposes, like say … Bob Woodward, the New York Times, the Washington Post, or the alphabet soup of broadcast leakers and liars.
O’Keefe entices the schemers, hucksters, and frauds to incriminate themselves on camera. Without their knowledge, of course.
During a speech to Phyllis Schlafly’s Eagle Forum last week, O’Keefe made an announcement that had to have sent shivers throughout corrupt seditionists inside Washington’s administrative state.
“Usually I would show video clips. Today I’m going to actually just speak and show a very brief clip and I’m going to tease announce what we’re releasing next week.”
“The subject of our investigation for launch next week is the Deep State and we are calling it ‘Unmasking the Deep State.”
During an interview for the March 2018 edition of the Limbaugh Letter, O’Keefe explained why Project Veritas was uniquely qualified to escape the label of Fake News.
“The Framers created a government that exists with the consent of the governed, but that consent must be informed. People need to be informed. It can’t be manufactured consent.
“Right now there is a conflict of vision. The mainstream media believes that you must not trust the evidence of your own eyes and ears. ‘You must listen to us to interpret the information for you.’ The Veritas approach is to show you the raw data, which sometimes directly contradicts how they interpret that information. So we’re changing journalism by circumventing the interpreters of reality by distributing reality in its raw, pure form.
O’Keefe is correct when he says there is a media filter,
Let’s take a short walk down memory lane and spend 45 seconds with Mika Brzezinski while she castigates President Trump for using Twitter to communicate with the public because, according to Mika, when it comes to shaping people’s opinions, “that’s our job:”
Mika was expressing the frustration of the entire state-run propaganda construct aka the mainstream media.
Raw data as O’Keefe refers to it, or direct communication from the president as Trump practices, have legacy reporters and journalists crying foul. Project Veritas’ M.O. makes it impossible for any wrongdoers, or opinion shapers to deny or interpret what viewers see and hear for themselves.
Returning to the present, O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has delivered, and big bigly. First, here are the three videos he’s released so far this week.
In the first video, released on Tuesday, we observe State Department employee Stuart Karaffa, a ranking member in the Metro DC Democratic Socialists of America (DCA), admitting that he regularly engages in radical socialist DCA activities, including advocating resistance to the Trump agenda, during official government hours. In other words, on our dime.
The following day Project Veritas released the second video. This video captures Allison Hrabar, a paralegal at the Department of Justice admitting that within her official duties she takes whatever measures open to her to resist and slow President Trump’s agenda. Again, on the taxpayers’ dime.
Also captured is Jessica Schubel who was the former Chief of Staff for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services under Obama.
Both admit to breaking the laws governing federal employment.
It should be noted that Ms. Hrabar was the loudmouthed pig who searched out Homeland Security head Kristjen Nielsen to disrupt her dinner (and that of every other diner in the restaurant) in a most vile manner.
On Thursday Project Veritas released their third video. Here we have Natarajan Subramanian, a self-proclaimed Communist and ranking member of the DCA, working inside the Government Accountability Office (GAO), openly admitting to engaging in anti-Capitalist, anti-Trump agenda activities, again on the taxpayers’ dime.
I’d advise everyone who questions the existence of a “Deep State” and/or its destructive influence to watch these videos and visit Project Veritas’ website for more information.
This is the “Deep State, the shadow government, the permanent government. Whatever name you choose to call it, it is not working for you. Worse, it’s actively working against your interests.
It is a highly organized, unelected cabal that includes Marxists, radical feminists, environmental extremists intent on destroying the U.S. economy, and cultural divisionists among others.
And, because of civil service law, it’s almost impossible to terminate them. Again, all Americans are free to protest, including government workers. But, it must be on their own time.
Any unauthorized use of government assets, such as accessing computer files or programs, to facilitate their outside efforts is strictly prohibited, as is time spent on anything else (even benignly playing freecell) when they’re supposed to be working.
Importantly, O’Keefe’s efforts have gotten attention from the top levels of the Trump administration and the appropriate departments have released official statements:
“I can confirm Stuart Karaffa is a Management and Program Analyst with the Bureau of Overseas Buildings Operations.
“We take seriously any allegation of a violation of the Hatch Act and financial disclosure rules and are closely reviewing this matter.
“This is a personnel matter that we cannot comment on further at this time.”
Those who read this as a tepid response doubt Secretary Pompeo’s resolve at their own risk. Pompeo may talk softly but he carries a very large sledgehammer as well.
Pompeo was asked about this by Laura Ingraham and said:
“Rest assured we’re aware of it and we’re taking a look at it…”
“… If this is a mission on which you can’t sign up for it’s time to go do something else with your time.”
Department of Justice:
“These allegations are deeply concerning. Department policy prohibits misuse of government resources to advance personal interests. We are looking into this immediately and have referred this matter to the Inspector General as well.”
Health and Human Services:
“These allegations are deeply concerning. Individuals who share sensitive information for their own personal gain or motives, hinder our mission at the department to enhance and protect the health and well-being of Americans. These alleged actions are not only unacceptable, but possibly illegal, and warrant a swift and thorough investigation.”
Government Accountability Office:
“We are aware of the video and investigating the serious issues it raises, and we have also communicated with the GAO Inspector General.”
Coupled with President Trump’s order to declassify the Carter Page FISA applications, Bruce Ohr’s dozen or so FBI interviews (302’s) and up to 50,000 text messages that were exchange by the FBI co-conspirators against Donald Trump, this has been a devastating week for the Deep State.
No wonder the Deep State’s propaganda arm, aka the mainstream media, wants to distract us with another unsubstantiated and unverifiable claim, by another radical anti-Trump radical member of the resistance, about something that almost assuredly never occurred.
Sounds awfully similar to the CIA-FBI-DOJ-State Department scheme to destroy candidate, and later President Trump. Both accusations are “salacious and unverified.”
Actually, both are unverifiable. Right out of the Democrats’ playbook.
