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 »

A simple desultory philippic

Featured image With the FBI raid and New York Times write-up by Maggie Haberman, Ben Protess, and Adam Goldman, President Trump was James O’Keefed yesterday. O’Keefe was raided, humiliated, and Times’d over Ashley Biden’s diary. The government is out to get him. So it is with President Trump, right down to the Times coordination with the national security establishment (“according to multiple people familiar with the investigation”). Thinking that Trump had been »

Sympathy for Ray Epps

Featured image In “The new Kremlinology” Matt Taibbi gives a lesson in how to read the New York Times. The text of Taibbi’s column is available only in part to nonsubscribers, but it gives you the idea. We’ve been reading the Times in the Kremlinological style for quite some time now. This week’s sympathetic Times profile of January 6 agitator Ray Epps by Alan Feuer presents a serious challenge to interpretation. The »

Inside the Biden family business (again)

Featured image Miranda Devine raises the question whether President Biden is “compromised by the Chinese Communist Party, given all the evidence on Hunter’s laptop about millions of dollars that flowed from China to his son [Hunter Biden] and brother, Jim Biden.” Her current New York Post column is “Amid Hunter’s ongoing scandals, Biden is going soft on China.” In the course of her column Devine discloses two JP Morgan Chase suspicious activity »

Inside the Biden family

Featured image The New York Post’s Maureen Callahan takes a look inside President Biden’s immediate family in the column “Bidens are as dysfunctional as the Kennedys — and protected by the press.” Today Callahan’s column can be supplemented with Emily Crane’s New York Post story “Hunter Biden reportedly called Jill an ‘entitled c–t’ in texts.” For her column Callahan draws mostly on Ashley Biden’s diary. With a little help from the Biden »

Down memory lane with the Times

Featured image The New York Times supports the efforts of the government to get James O’Keefe and Project Veritas in the case of Ashley Biden’s diary. Reporters including Michael Schmidt and Adam Goldman are working as the public relations arm of the Biden administration and the national security establishment to nail them. It turns out that the FBI and SDNY prosecutors have been working the case for a long time. They have »

Reporting from Restoration Weekend

Featured image The David Horowitz Freedom Center’s Restoration Weekend is wrapping up this morning. It has been, as always, a fun and informative three days. The event, held at the Breakers in Palm Beach, was sold out. I don’t know how many attenders were here, but there were a lot. We didn’t catch all of the speeches, but the ones we saw were uniformly excellent. Victor Davis Hanson, Jason Whitlock, Miranda Devine, »

The FBI and the Stolen Diary

Featured image The strangest news story of the last few days relates to multiple FBI raids on the homes of people associated with Project Veritas, including that of founder James O’Keefe. Those who were searched say that the agents were looking for information related to the alleged theft of a diary belonging to Joe Biden’s daughter Ashley, which the New York Times and other news sources have confirmed. The diary dates to »

Sunday morning coming down

Featured image I love the work of the musician Tim O’Brien. I compiled the videos below this morning when I discovered that Tim’s “Time To Learn” was finally available on YouTube. When I listened to the video yesterday, the song reduced me to tears, as it always does. I pulled down my stack of Tim’s recordings some five or six inches high to jog my memory of his work. Looking through the »

Project Veritas Is Sticking It To the Times

Featured image This video by Project Veritas’s James O’Keefe is entertaining. O’Keefe is not a lawyer, but what he says about the progress of Veritas’s defamation lawsuit against the New York Times is basically accurate. The case arises out of Veritas’s exposure of voter fraud in Minnesota, which the Times labeled, falsely, as “deceptive” and “probably part of a coordinated disinformation campaign.” Project Veritas alleges that these and other statements by the »

CNN Exposed

Featured image An unknown CNN insider apparently gave Project Veritas access to the phone call that senior executives at CNN conduct, I take it, every morning. So Project Veritas has recorded the last two months’ worth of calls. I haven’t yet listened to all of the recordings that have been released, but this real-time video of James O’Keefe announcing himself to Jeff Zucker and the other CNN staffers is pretty entertaining: CNN’s »

Tom Lyden versus Project Veritas

Featured image FOX9 is the local FOX channel in the Twin Cities. It’s not an affiliate. FOX owns it. Tom Lyden works as an investigative reporter on the news side of the operation. I have a healthy respect for Tom’s work and, in one case involving a story on Ilhan Omar that FOX9 deposited down the memory hole, even stood up for its accuracy when he has stood down. Tom got the »

Systemic Voter Fraud In Minnesota?

Featured image For the last several weeks, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has been in Minnesota, collecting information about voter fraud linked to the Democratic Party and, in particular, Ilhan Omar’s machine. Tonight they unveiled their first video on voter fraud in Minnesota. Do they have the goods on the Democrats’ fraud strategy? Here is the first installment; you can judge for yourself: More to come. »

Sunday morning coming down

Featured image I’ve written about Chris Hillman several times over the years. In 2017 he released a new disc with his long-time friend and musical partner Herb Pedersen (Bidin’ My Time, produced by the late Tom Petty and Herb). In April 2018 Chris and Herb came through town to play at the Dakota Jazz Club and Restaurant in downtown Minneapolis, where we saw them up close. I snapped the photo at right »

Infiltrating Antifa

Featured image Antifa is a vicious fascist organization that is indistinguishable from the Nazi Brownshirts of the 1930s. Terrorizing innocent people and destroying property are its only tactics. President Trump recently designated Antifa a domestic terrorist organization, which it certainly is, although one with extensive international connections. Also with a lot of money: Antifa is heavily financed by left-wing plutocrats. James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has been infiltrating Antifa, apparently over a significant »

Why Are Bernie Bros So Violent?

Featured image I am starting to get the feeling that James Hodgkinson wasn’t a one-off. James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has been conducting an undercover investigation of the Bernie Sanders campaign. We wrote here and here about a Project Veritas investigator’s conversations with one of Sanders’ “top tier organizers” in Iowa. The Bernie Bro expressed admiration for the Soviet Gulags, said billionaires should be sentenced to breaking rocks, and suggested that anyone who »

Remembering James Hodgkinson

Featured image As I noted earlier, James O’Keefe released a series of videos today that feature a Bernie Sanders campaign worker named Kyle Jurek. They are in the usual undercover format used by Project Veritas. Jurek says many shocking things. He promises that Milwaukee will “burn” if Sanders doesn’t get the Democratic nomination, and vows to attack police officers. He endorses the Soviet Gulag in particular, and Communist re-education camps in general. »
