Last week, I posted the first video of the ‘American Pravda’ series made by James O’Keefe and his Project Veritas team.

The second video, again about the New York Times but also YouTube came out on October 11, 2017:

The YouTube chap — Earnest Pettie, Brand and Diversity Curation Lead — says that his team provides ‘human inputs’ into YouTube. That means that they sometimes intervene to cause certain videos to trend, running a script (computer program) to bypass or manipulate YouTube’s algorithms.

Pettie was also full of praise for the subject of the first American Pravda video, Nick Dudich, who is no longer a New York Times employee, thanks to what the short film revealed.

Strangely, afterward — my first post on this series has more on Dudich’s dismissal — Dean Baquet, the NYT’s executive editor — accused James O’Keefe of lying:

I agree with O’Keefe. Surely Baquet should have thanked him for revealing the truth. Dudich was disingenuous in the video. O’Keefe never interviewed him, other Project Veritas team members did.

Project Veritas will be releasing more American Pravda videos in due course. Stay tuned.

James O’Keefe and his Project Veritas team have done it again!

The following video is the first in a series called ‘American Pravda’ which exposes the media:

This video came out on Tuesday, October 10, 2017. It centres on Nicholas Dudich, the New York Times’s Audience Strategy Editor. Dudich makes some remarkable claims: that James Comey is his godfather (he later says he lied but it was ‘a good story’) and that he was part of Antifa working undercover for the FBI.

Dudich says he worked on both of Obama’s presidential campaigns and on Hillary Clinton’s in 2016.

Whatever the truth of the matter, he is very much on the Left and says he wants to ‘make a diference’ by influencing opinion, not present objective fact. PJ Media provides a snippet of what Dudich said about President Donald Trump (emphases mine):

I’d target his businesses, his dumb f*** of a son, Donald Jr., and Eric, so they’re running Trump, like, the Trump business. … And you put pressure on his business and you start investigating his business and you start shutting it down. … He cares about his business more than he cares about being President. … He would resign.

That segment ended with this:

Or he’d lash out and do something incredibly illegal, which he would have to.

Yeah, sure, buddy.

The video infuriated Esquire:

There’s no reason to trust anything O’Keefe says or any BOMBSHELL RECORDING (!) he produces. The presumption must always be that the recordings are edited with a meat-ax to produce something that will get TDMOTI and his audience of slavering shut-ins moist with anticipation for the first time since V-E Day.

Oh, yeah — and there’s Dudich saying that he wants to influence opinion on every NYT video he posts online.

The following is from the NYT‘s ethical guidelines:

The NYT was quick to take action. Clifford Levy is the paper’s deputy managing editor. Note that Levy says Dudich ‘was’ responsible only for posting videos, not creating or editing them:

Earlier, in August, Levy issued the following statement to staff. The video has dialogue with Dudich which confirms that the interview did take place that month:

O’Keefe tweeted:

I look forward to it but hope that O’Keefe will vary from his usual practice of issuing two meaty videos then a series of minute-long anti-climactic ones.

Someone posted this picture in a discussion about the Project Veritas video. Have a look. I’m not posting it here because of the image credit.

One America News (OAN) is doing a three-part series with O’Keefe on how he and his team work. It’s dangerous business, so if these become available on YouTube, I shall post them. In the meantime, this is OAN’s trailer (preview):

We need the truth to come out about the big, bad media. Thank goodness James O’Keefe and Project Veritas are doing their best to help. Kudos to OAN for broadcasting it.

See comments below for an update. More to follow after the weekend.

On Tuesday, June 27, 2017 I posted on the first part of an exposé about CNN that James O’Keefe and his Project Veritas made.

The Project Veritas video shows a CNN producer says that the Russia narrative which the network pushes 24/7 is bunk.

The story so far

This came just after CNN dismissed three of their journalists last weekend for an article about Anthony Scaramucci, who worked on President Donald Trump’s transition team. The article alleged that Scaramucci had Russian connections. My post has more on that and the panic that resulted at CNN.

Oddly, Scaramucci is a frequent guest on the network. Why would they smear him?

On June 27, the New York Post had an excellent article on CNN’s panic and the reasons for it. Excerpts and a summary follow. Emphases mine below.

CNN faced a hefty lawsuit:

The specter of a $100 million libel suit scared CNN into retracting a poorly reported story that slimed an ally of President Trump’s — and forcing out the staffers responsible for it, The Post has learned …

CNN immediately caved after Scaramucci, a financier and frequent network guest, cried foul and threatened to take legal action, sources said Tuesday.

Scaramucci got an unusual public apology but still hired a top Manhattan lawyer to put further pressure on CNN and “look after [his] interests in this matter,” one source said.

The three CNN employees did not resign but were helped out the door:

Sources also said the three journalists responsible for the retracted story — reporter Tom Frank, editor Eric Lichtblau and Lex Haris, who headed the CNN Investigates unit — were urged to resign.

“They called them in and said they’d pay out their contracts, but they should leave immediately,” one source said.

CNN’s CEO Jeff Zucker is particularly worried about the retracted story and its consequences. He is in a precarious position right now:

The cable network’s coverage of Trump transition team member Anthony Scaramucci came amid federal scrutiny of corporate parent Time Warner’s pending purchase by AT&Tand the widespread belief among media execs that CNN President Jeff Zucker can’t survive a merger.

This was one of the biggest talking points at the Cannes Lions advertising festival held during the second half of June:

At last week’s Cannes Lions festival in France — where Zucker boasted that viewers trust CNN “more than ever”rumors were rife that he’d be out of a job if the AT&T deal goes through.

Furthermore:

“It’s not just Jeff Zucker, all Time Warner executives are anxious about if they will survive the merger,” a media source said Tuesday.

This is because the men making the merger decisions are Trump allies:

“What is interesting is that the AT&T execs who will decide who goes and who stays are [AT&T CEO] Randall Stephenson and [AT&T Entertainment Group CEO] John Stankey — who have a very good relationship with the current administration.”

President Trump has opposed the merger and has no love for CNN:

Trump — a fierce critic of CNN — publicly opposed the merger during the campaign. Sources said Scaramucci, a frequent guest on CNN to defend the president, was treated like a star at Saturday’s wedding of Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Louise Linton in Washington, DC.

Everyone at the White House has been high-fiving each other over Anthony’s success in embarrassing CNN,” one attendee said.

Trump is thoroughly enjoying this, and Anthony got endless slaps on the back at Steve’s wedding.”

Trump was undoubtedly the highest profile guest at Mnuchin’s wedding.

This week, the online world has — rightly — stamped the ‘fake news’ label all over CNN.

Shaughn A co-planned and helped execute a sting of NPR (National Public Radio) with posing as a Muslim Brotherhood front group. These videos are also part of James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas exposés: Parts I, II and III.

Shaughn A tweeted:

The New York Post had this:

Part II of the CNN exposé: Van Jones

James O’Keefe tweeted that he would release the second part of what Project Veritas have dubbed ‘American Pravda: CNN’ on his birthday.

On Wednesday, June 28, as O’Keefe turned 33, this short video featuring Van Jones, CNN contributor and former member of the Obama administration.

Van Jones says the Russia narrative about Trump is a ‘nothing burger’. This was filmed on Monday, June 26. The first few seconds show the date display at CNN headquarters:

The video also briefly recaps comments Health producer John Bonifield made during the first video.

O’Keefe also mentions Sarah Huckabee Sanders’s recommendation of the first video when she gave the White House press briefing on June 27. The clip comes from none other than CNN. Oh, the irony:

I won’t go into Van Jones’s recent commentary for CNN, however, only days before the Project Veritas reporter interviewed him, he was on television saying how vital it is that the details on Trump’s collusion with Russia be revealed:

Can we conclude from this that Van Jones is a highly paid actor for rather than contributor to CNN?

Of course, diehard CNN viewers won’t believe that the network peddles fake news:

Jones condemns the video as being ‘selectively edited’:

CNN plays it safe

CNN now has to play it safe by reprising Obama’s jeans:

Their ratings are lousy, too. Even MSNBC has more viewers:

Other media outlets exposed

The false Russia narrative has also played well on the traditional network news:

I am looking forward to the day when this falsehood suddenly stops. I hope it is very soon.

BREAKING … Part 3

Part 3 came out today, Friday, June 30. It features an interview with Jimmy Carr, the producer of CNN’s New Day, not the British comedian. He says that nearly everyone at CNN thinks Trump is grossly unqualified for office and that voters are stupid. Carr says the network covers only a handful of stories each day, ones which are good for ratings. The video ends with O’Keefe asking Jeff Zucker for a comment on the videos. Zucker ignores him and gets into a black van:

I plan to follow up on reaction to this next week.

James O’Keefe, the founder and head of Project Veritas (past videos at the link), has once again produced a sterling undercover video.

This time, he sent an undercover reporter of his to CNN to investigate the Russian collusion accusations against President Donald Trump.

On Monday, June 26, 2017, Laura Loomer of Canada’s Rebel Media tweeted:

Within hours, the Project Veritas video appeared on YouTube.

I highly recommend this subtitled, 8+-minute video (mild language alert), not only to anti-Trump readers but also to those of similar mindset who live outside of the United States, particularly in Europe:

The following synopsis comes from Project Veritas (emphases mine below):

In the recent video footage obtained by Project Veritas, John Bonifield a Sr. Producer at CNN, admits to several beliefs that are in direct conflict with the official CNN narrative that Trump has colluded with Russia, and that Russia has interfered with the 2016 election. Bonifield expresses clear doubts that there is a fire behind the Russia smoke, stating, “I haven’t seen any good enough evidence to show that the President committed a crime.” He also confirms suspicions that CNN staff is ideologically biased against Trump, stating, “I know a lot of people don’t like him and they’d like to see him get kicked out of office…”

Bonifield even further confirms CNN’s bias against the President, stating, “I think the President is probably right to say, like, look you are witch hunting me…you have no real proof.”

Bonifield exposes that Russia has been great for CNN’s ratings, and that orders from CEO Jeff Zucker himself have directed CNN to pursue Russia leads at the expense of other stories. Bonifield states “And the CEO of CNN said in our internal meeting, he said ‘good job everybody covering the Climate Accords, but we’re done with it let’s get back to Russia.’

He further comments on Russia, “it’s mostly bullshit right now. Like, we don’t have any giant proof…if it was something really good, it’d leak.”

This is not fabricated. John Bonifield does indeed work for CNN, his employer for several years.

Quite rightly, O’Keefe channelled his late friend and mentor, Andrew Breitbart, who encouraged more people to make honest and hard-hitting exposés:

The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has seen the video:

Freedom of speech is one thing, but when a news organisation purporting to be trustworthy keeps pushing damaging falsehoods for ratings, that’s something else:

Yep.

I know a lot of people offline who believe what CNN says. They, like most of CNN’s viewers, are highly educated. One man told me recently, ‘It’s not a matter of if, but when, Trump’s Russian collusion comes out.’

But, wait, didn’t Obama laugh at the notion that an American election could be rigged? He ridiculed Trump’s claims last year of voter fraud and more. Since then, the fake Russian narrative that somehow they helped Trump win the White House has been front and centre, especially from CNN.

Yesterday, Trump tweeted:

Lou Dobbs of Fox News analysed the web of deceit surrounding the Democrats’ claims about Trump and Russia. Dobbs doesn’t say, but some Republicans also believe this fakery:

Trump had more to say on the topic. Sundance of The Conservative Treehouse put the president’s tweets together:

Over the past week or so, CNN’s obnoxious and belligerent Jim Acosta has been complaining about the White House press briefings and gaggles. Some changes have been made; filming, for example, is no longer guaranteed.

I call Acosta obnoxious because he was particularly rude to Trump last winter when the then president-elect gave a press conference at Trump Tower. Acosta interrupted him several times. Trump got his own back on Acosta weeks later in his first press conference as president.

Those who watch these briefings say that whilst Acosta himself might be ignored, others from CNN are not:

That was nothing compared to what happened next.

CNN discovered it was in hot water for its fake news.

On Friday, June 24, the network had to withdraw a story, one that involved the Russia narrative.

Newsweek has a summary of what happened:

CNN’s announcement of new publishing restrictions on articles about President Donald Trump and Russia, as reported by Buzzfeed, has delighted right-wing media.

Populist website Breitbart reported that the “very fake news scandal” was consuming the network, while Fox News host Sean Hannity taunted CNN’s Jeff Zucker on Twitter …

CNN’s retracted story, which alleged that the Senate Intelligence Committee was probing claims that the chief of a $10 billion Russian investment fund had met with a member of Trump’s transition team days before the president’s inauguration, was based on a single unnamed source …

BuzzFeed reported (language alert):

The now-deleted story was published Thursday and cited a single, unnamed source who claimed that the Senate Intelligence Committee was looking into a “$10-billion Russian investment fund whose chief executive met with a member of President Donald Trump’s transition team four days before Trump’s inauguration.”

A source close to the network, who requested anonymity to discuss the matter, told BuzzFeed News earlier that the story was a “massive, massive fuck up and people will be disciplined.” The person said CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker and the head of the company’s human resources department are “directly involved” in an internal investigation examining how the story was handled.

BuzzFeed included this tweet:

On Monday, June 26, three CNN employees resigned (Jeff Zucker, the network’s CEO, is pictured giving the announcement):

That particular BuzzFeed article said, in part:

Three CNN employees have resigned in the wake of the news outlet’s retracted Russia story.

Thomas Frank, the reporter who wrote the story; Eric Lichtblau, who recently joined CNN from the New York Times; and CNN Investigates executive editor Lex Haris have left the news outlet. The Washington Post first reported the resignations, which a CNN source confirmed to BuzzFeed News …

The story, written by investigative reporter Frank, was posted on Thursday and deleted late Friday. More than an hour after BuzzFeed News contacted CNN about the deletion, an editor’s note appeared on CNN website saying that the story “did not meet CNN’s editorial standards and has been retracted.”

The note also apologized to Anthony Scaramucci, a member of Trump’s orbit who had been named in the story (and who later tweeted that the apology was accepted).

The retraction sent CNN scrambling to deal with the fallout over the weekend, even within parts of the news operation that weren’t involved in the retracted report …

Historian and author Thomas Wictor had an interesting exchange with another Twitter user about Eric Lichtblau’s reporting history at the New York Times, including:

And, with further implications for CNN:

Trump tweeted:

This is not the end of the story for CNN — or for other media outlets. Investigative journalist and New York Times best selling author Sharyl Attkisson has just come out with a new book, The Smear, which is all about fake news. She could not have timed it better. I wish her all the best with book sales:

It might well answer the president’s queries:

Monday, June 26, was also notable for the Supreme Court’s temporary approval of Trump’s partial travel ban from earlier this year. The Supreme Court justices will look at the ban formally as a case later this year, probably October.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said at that day’s press briefing:

Good afternoon. I want to say at the top that with respect to the Supreme Court decision on the President’s executive order, the President was honored by the 9-0 decision that allows him to use an important tool to protect our nation’s homeland.

His number-one responsibility as Commander-in-Chief is to keep the American people safe, and that’s exactly what this executive order does.

Nationally syndicated talk show host John Cardillo tweeted:

In a statement from the Department of Justice, Attorney General Jeff Sessions explains why this partial travel ban is necessary for the safety and security of the United States:

I know some people still find this executive order discriminatory, however, it covers only six countries, those which lack adequate security detail and procedures to vet their own citizens, some of whom could be potential terror risks.

With these two significant items of good news, perhaps White House Anon is legit, after all. On June 22, he predicted good things would happen this week.

In Washington, DC the Deploraball is scheduled to take place on the evening of Thursday, January 19. The event sold out quickly. It will be the people’s celebration featuring many speakers as well as fun.

Unfortunately, it might also be a target of protesters and people who wish to do attendees physical harm.

On January 16, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas released an undercover film made at Comet Ping Pong — hmm (Pizzagate) — about plans to disrupt it with butyric acid. The video tells us the event is being held at the National Press Building. A little butyric acid goes a long way. If such an attack is successful, the whole building would stink and guests with asthma or heart conditions could end up in hospital. Project Veritas has already been in touch with the authorities:

Americans who voted for Donald Trump are hopeful about his and his administration’s ability to ‘drain the swamp’. Washington, DC was built on a swamp, hence the term.

They are looking forward to an end to, as Trump put it during the presidential campaign, the ‘false song of globalism’. They are tired of the greed, the lies and the intrigue. Most of all, they are tired of seeing their standard of living fall, their children’s prospects damaged and the shrinking of the middle class.

Although Trump will not be appearing, this is why an event like the Deploraball is being held. There were three tiers of ticket prices, all of which were $500 or less. The cheapest one was well under $100. For those who cannot go, Deploraballs are being held across the nation. As their website says:

This was our election.
We emerged victorious.

I hope they have a great time in complete safety.

A new term emerged this election cycle: bird dogging.

Democrats use this dastardly technique. It involves paying people to incite violence at Trump rallies.

One of James O’Keefe Project Veritas videos exposes how it is done. Please be warned about the filthy language. That said, it is a must-see to find out how shameless and criminal they are about it. (It’s subtitled throughout, so you don’t need sound.) Recruits are often mentally ill or homeless:

This is criminal activity.

And Hillary Clinton — the good Methodist — knows all about it.

It should be noted that Scott Foval was fired from his job as National Field Director (!) at Americans United for Change (Criminality, more like) as soon as this video appeared on Wednesday, October 17.

The following day, Bob Creamer, founder and director of Democracy Partners resigned from his post.

You can be sure these two will be back for a future election. That’s how Democrats roll.

What follows is a real example of bird dogging from WikiLeaks. The graphic comes courtesy of a contributor to The_Donald (click to enlarge):

And there is more criminal activity, albeit of a non-violent nature.

On October 23, the Washington Post published an article about illegal aliens going door to door in Virginia soliciting votes for Hillary.

You couldn’t make it up. These people are in the United States illegally and have the nerve to influence Americans’ votes.

Excerpts follow (emphases mine):

Unable to vote in the presidential election, a group of undocumented immigrants is knocking on doors in Northern Virginia in support of Hillary Clinton and other Democratic candidates, convinced that the outcome of the vote will determine whether they can secure a path to citizenship in the country they have known since childhood.

The vote-seekers are some of the 750,000 recipients of temporary legal status under the Obama administration’s 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program …

“All DACA recipients should take this on as an added responsibility, to change the power structure,” said Luis Angel Aguilar, 28, who received his protected status in 2013 and is helping to coordinate the effort. “Our voices need to be heard,” he said.

The DACA volunteers come from CASA of Virginia. The main CASA organisation is based in Maryland.

Note how Ms Hinojosa mentions bird dogging Trump supporters with DACA and engaging immigrant organisations.

The WaPo article has a picture of a man with the CASA volunteers. The caption reads:

Jaime Contreras, area director for Service Employees International Union, welcomes people gathered at CASA of Virginia as they prepare to knock on doors to mobilize the immigrant vote for Hillary Clinton, in Woodbridge, Va.

No doubt that man is probably a nice SEIU member. (And the CASA volunteers are probably polite, too.)

However …

The SEIU is a radical union bent on violence and destruction. They have caused violence at peaceful Tea Party demonstrations, and they advocate the overthrow of the American economy. I wrote about these purple-shirted hooligans and organisers in 2011, citing an article from It Doesn’t Make Sense, ‘Union Thuggery and Skullduggery’, which says, in part:

There is now evidence that the SEIU planned to destroy the American economy in order to impose a wealth distribution oriented, socialist government

We are seeing this now where squatters simply occupy a dwelling and refuse to leave. SEIU sends their union thugs into banks to disrupt them and assault people who protest their actions.

The video below shows how racist and ugly they are:

Returning to the WaPo article, we discover that CASA volunteers are conducting door-to-door canvassing in not only in Virginia, but also in Pennsylvania, Arizona and other battleground states.

However, having DACA — ‘protected’ — status does not play well with all voters, especially legal immigrants:

… in a swing state where Trump has recently renewed efforts to win over voters, that does not guarantee sympathy. At a home in Herndon, Pat Blizard, 78, told [volunteer] Lopez that she already voted for Trump with an absentee ballot.

“I’m sorry,” Blizard said, noting that she was frustrated with the spread of Spanish-speaking residents throughout the region. “I’m originally from Spain. My father never let us speak Spanish. He said, ‘You live here.’ ”

Reader reaction came thick and fast — and not from the usual WaPo lefties, either. One man wrote two representative comments (here and here, respectively):

The surest way to take over another country or state or neighborhood is to simply replace the existing population. So when you hear that the demographics of the United States is changing from American to Latin American, you’ll know what’s happening.

Somehow, I don’t think that’s what Americans want immigration to do. Immigration must be LEGAL, balanced, and slow enough for assimilation so we don’t lose the basics like our common language.

They broke the first U.S. law they didn’t like now they’re unhappy with their status and want Hillary to put them above the law!

Well, this country works because we at least strive to make everybody follow the law or suffer the consequences and foreign nationals who are in our country illegally do not get a pass! Legalizing illegal aliens is NOT the way to reform immigration! We have laws, they simply need to be enforced. Eventually, when living here ILLEGALLY is no longer rewarding, illegal immigration will cease to be a problem; there is no quick fix that will last!

Please circulate this information to undecided voters among friends and family.

If this doesn’t encourage them to vote for Donald Trump, what will?
