The O’Keefe Project: Extortion edition

Featured image Did Project Veritas use its possession of the diary of Ashley Biden as “leverage” with which to “extort” President Biden? The fifth New York Times story on Project Veritas and the Ashley Biden diary includes this passage under a suggestive heading: Using the Diary as Leverage Less than a month before Election Day, in an Oct. 12, 2020, email that Project Veritas included in a court filing, [PV founder] Mr. »

The O’Keefe Project: Project Veritas’s statement

Featured image I followed up this morning on my post looking at the current New York Times story on the investigation of Project Veritas with PV attorney Paul Calli. I asked Mr. Calli for the questions submitted by the New York Times to PV and the response given to the Times, both of which were omitted from the story. Mr. Calli has provided the following as O’Keefe’s unquoted response to the questions »

The O’Keefe Project: The Times strikes again

Featured image We have followed the story of the FBI raid on James O’Keefe and associates of Project Veritas in a series of posts under the heading “The O’Keefe Project.” The most recent of these posts is dated November 24. The FBI conducted these raids in the style to which we became accustomed in the case of Roger Stone and appears to have followed them up with leaks to its friends at »

The O’Keefe Project: Mysterious disappearance

Featured image Reporting on the FBI raids on James O’Keefe and former associates in the matter of Ashley Biden’s diary, the Times seems to have a pipeline to the FBI and national security establishment. Thus the November 11 story by Adam Goldman and Mark Mazzetti quoting otherwise privileged legal memos prepared for Project Veritas in connection with its work. Washington Post media critic Erik Wemple suggests that a disgruntled Project Veritas employee »

The O’Keefe Project: What’s going on?

Featured image I am in search of a deeper understanding of the facts underlying the FBI raids on James O’Keefe’s and former Project Veritas associates in the matter of Ashley Biden’s diary. Pending before the court that issued the search warrants authorizing the raids is the motion of Project Veritas for the appointment of a Special Master to review the contents of O’Keefe’s cell phones and protect against the disclosure of otherwise »

The O’Keefe Project: Notes toward an update

Featured image The story of the FBI raid on James O’Keefe and others associated with Project Veritas in the matter of Ashley Biden’s diary should be big news. The New York Times has devoted four stories to it, but the Times has a bone to pick with O’Keefe. The Times stories throb with hostility to Project Veritas and thrill to his humiliation. I have put in a request for an interview with »

The O’Keefe Project: Erik Wemple edition

Featured image Washington Post media critic Erik Wemple has a good column on the FBI raid on James O’Keefe and the seizure of his cell phones in the matter of Ashley Biden’s diary. Wemple’s column is “Did the Justice Department overreach in raiding James O’Keefe’s home?” Wemple’s column provides a careful account of the facts as we have been given to understand them so far (links omitted): Before the 2020 election, a »

The O’Keefe Project: The search warrant

Featured image The search warrant under which the FBI raided James O’Keefe and seized his cell phones is in circulation. FOX News has a copy. A FOX News producer gave a copy to the New York Times and asked whether the FBI had tipped the Times to the raids on O’Keefe and other Project Veritas associates. The Times didn’t say in its story reporting the question from FOX News, but I believe »

The O’Keefe Project: Josh Gerstein reports

Featured image The New York Times has run four stories on the FBI raids predicated on the alleged theft of Ashley Biden’s diary. The FBI has executed two raids on James O’Keefe and others associated with Project Veritas in the case. O’Keefe says Project Veritas was never able to authenticate the diary and that it had nothing to do with its theft, if that is what it was. We can infer that »

The O’Keefe Project: An update

Featured image The New York Times has now published its fourth story on the investigation of James O’Keefe and Project Vertitas in connection with their possession of the diary of Ashley Biden. The otherwise questionable authenticity of the diary can be inferred from the involvement of the FBI. It has somehow become a federal case in the Age of Biden. Today’s story is “Project Veritas Tells Judge It Was Assured Biden Diary »

The O’Keefe Project

Featured image James O’Keefe et al. were raided under a federal search warrant procured by the FBI. Although O’Keefe was instructed to remain mum, the authorities promptly leaked news of the raid to the New York Times. All this in the matter of Ashley Biden’s diary. Among the items seized in the raid were O’Keefe’s cell phones. Fox News reports that a court order has enjoined the Department of Justice from extracting »

James O’Keefe speaks

Featured image James O’Keefe appeared for a segment with this attorney on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show last night. I have posted the video immediately below. We have wondered what possible federal crimes might have given rise to the search warrant on which the FBI’s abuse of O’Keefe was justified. O’Keefe’s attorney actually cites the crimes specified in the search warrant, but Hannity quickly moves on. I don’t watch enough televison news »

O’Keefe’s exploding cigar

Featured image James O’Keefe had a brainstorm. He thought he could peddle a fraudulent Roy Moore sex scandal to the reporters of the Washington Post. Instead the reporters scoped out O’Keefe’s fraud and reported that instead. The Post even traced the woman who dealt with its reporters to O’Keefe’s offices in New York (video below). Mediaite’s Ken Meyer has a brief summary here; Hot Air’s Allahpundit reports and comments at some length »

Pryor analytics, O’Keefe edition

Featured image James O’Keefe takes his Project Veritas Action team inside the campaign of incumbent Democratic Senator Mark Pryor of Arkansas. In his new video, O’Keefe’s team shows Pryor supporters claiming that he secretly supports gay marriage although he holds himself out as a supporter of traditional marriage. O’Keefe prefaces the video with this email message: Enter Senator Mark Pryor. Sen. Pryor is a Democrat from Arkansas who has been in office »

James O’Keefe Punks Hollywood Greens

Featured image There are advantages to being a video guy rather than an ink-stained wretch. James O’Keefe is currently in Cannes, where he is premiering his latest video prank. O’Keefe’s targets are Josh and Rebecca Tickell, producers of environmental documentaries including “Fuel.” Ed Begley Jr. and (former?) actress Mariel Hemingway appear, but are mostly along for the ride. And there isn’t actually much video; it’s mostly recorded conversations. But the content is »

O’Keefe Catches Texas Democrats In Illegal Activity

Featured image Battleground Texas, the “new ACORN,” purports to be a voter registration organization, but in fact is an arm of the Wendy Davis campaign for governor. Project Veritas infiltrated Battleground Texas and caught the Democratic Party activists red-handed, violating Texas law by retaining telephone numbers of voters they register, so they can call them during the campaign to turn them out for Davis. The Democrats’ illegal conduct couldn’t be clearer in »

Sliming James O’Keefe: A case study

James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles are the young activists who have blown the lid off the criminal left-wing enterprise known as ACORN. If they were left-wingers exposing some conservative or religious organization, government-funded or not, the mainstream media would have hailed them as heroic whistleblowers, perhaps worthy of a Time cover. Instead, the media are doing their damndest to slime them. Michael Barone reflects here on how the Washington Post »
