CNN producer admits Trump-Russia story is ‘bullshit’ fake news

Despite the fact that the FBI is not and has never investigated Donald Trump, last night in a unanimous resolution, the Oakland City Council joined other California cities in calling on Congress to investigate and impeach President Trump.

Grandstanding for the TV camera, Councilmember Dan Kalb, a co-sponsor of the resolution, specifically highlighted among the impeachable offenses Trump’s “releasing confidential information to Russia”.

Earth to low-info Dan Kalb:

“The Trump-Russia story is fake news, which a CNN producer admitted on camera is ‘bullshit’.”

On June 26, 2017, a day before Dan Kalb’s grandstanding, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas released an undercover video of CNN Supervising Producer John Bonifield admitting on hidden camera that there is no proof to CNN’s Russia narrative.

Calling the Russia narrative “mostly bullshit” and that “we don’t have any giant proof,” Bonifield admits “I haven’t seen any good enough evidence to show that the President committed a crime.” He continues:

“I just feel like they don’t really have it but they want to keep digging. And so I think the President is probably right to say, like, look you are witch hunting me. You have no smoking gun, you have no real proof.”

Bonifield also states that the instructions to “bullshit” the Russia-Trump fake news came straight from the top — CNN’s CEO Jeff Zucker:

“Just to give you some context, President Trump pulled out of the climate accords and for a day and a half we covered the climate accords. And the CEO of CNN (Jeff Zucker) said in our internal meeting, he said good job everybody covering the climate accords, but we’re done with that, let’s get back to Russia.

Bonifeld also admits the driving factor at CNN is ratings and business is booming because “Trump is good for business right now,” and that talk of journalistic ethics is just “adorable” propaganda fluff:

“It’s a business, people are like the media has an ethical phssssss… All the nice cutesy little ethics that used to get talked about in journalism school you’re just like, that’s adorable. That’s adorable. This is a business.”

In fact, at last week’s Cannes Lions festival in France, lying Jeff Zucker crowed that viewers trust CNN “more than ever”.

Project Veritas’ founder James O’Keefe, 32, points out what should be obvious, but evidently is not to liberal so-called journalists:

“To report not on facts, but instead on narratives that yield high ratings, is exactly the definition of fake news. We said we are going after the media, and there is a lot more to come.”

D.C. police arrest Trump inauguration domestic terrorists

Mere days before President Trump’s inauguration, using hidden cameras, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas captured video and audio evidence of a radical Left group plotting to disrupt and cause mayhem at the inauguration.

Members of DisruptJ20 were captured on video in Pizzagate’s Comet Ping Pong pizzeria discussing how they would disrupt the pro-Trump Deploraball on the night of January 19 at the National Press Building, Washington, DC, by releasing butyric acid stink-bombs into the ventilation system and setting off fire alarm sprinklers.

Those plans are outright terrorism and in violation of D.C. Code 22-3571.01(6) that carries a 5-year prison sentence:

“It shall be unlawful for anyone to willfully or knowingly, with the intent of intimidating or frightening people, causing panic or civil unrest….”

One of the terrorists, Luke Kuhn of the D.C. Anti-Fascist Coalition, was heard on the video threatening the D.C. government and the police:

“The message has to be, we do not recognize the city government either. If you try to close us down we will look for your house, we will burn it. We will physically fight the police if they try to steal one of our places. We will go to war and you will lose.”

For the video, see “Video evidence of the Left’s terrorist plans for Trump inauguration”.

Well, it looks like the D.C. police took the threats seriously by arresting three of the DisruptJ20 terrorists: Scott Ryan Charney (aka Scott Green), Colin Dunn and Luke Kuhn.

Scott Ryan Charney was the first to be arrested.

As reported by Andrea Noble of the Washington Times, Scott Charney was arrested on January 19, the night before the inauguration, for conspiracy to commit assault. Charney, 34, was one of the three men caught on Project Veritas’ camera.

Court documents indicate that police relied on the Project Veritas video, as well as emails sent between protest organizers, including emails sent by Charney to several individuals stating that he had conducted reconnaissance at the National Press Club, and believed his group “would be able to accomplish their objective ‘with no negative consequences for our side, nor any collateral damage.’”

Here’s the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department’s press release.

On February 15, Project Veritas tweeted that Luke Kuhn and Colin Dunn had also been arrested:

Police should also look into Luke Kuhn’s pedophile activities, based on his writings that were unearthed by citizen journalists on Reddit.

(1) On Sept. 22, 1997, Kuhn wrote in an essay titled “Ronald McDonald the child-molesting clown”:

“a burger loaded with E. Coli or Mad Cow disease will do a child far more damage than some seedy sexual encounter in the woods behind the school could ever dream of.”

(2) In an email on April 14, 1998, Kuhn wrote:

I have been a sexually-active bisexual since I was 12 years old…. Here in Montgomey County, MD, one of the things the Utopian Anarchist Party (a youth militia when you get right down to it) has been doing is running an underground railroad for runaways…. Keep up the good fight, for you are waging a holy war against the devils of psychiatry and minimum age laws…. I know one thing, if I had had parents who put me in a mental hospital for being Gay-or for being an anarchist, I would probably have burned them out for it.”

(3) On June 19, 1998, Kuhn wrote:

“I am writing in response to the lurid tales that have been circulating for the past week accusing the UAP [Utopian Anarchist Party] of running ‘child-pornography’ and other such commercial operations involving young people…. Yes, I did post a few articles to Boychat,which I found through a law-enforcement Web site. Why? What better place to post articles about the Mary Kay Latourneau case. Yes, I support the right of young people to CHOOSE to be sexually active if they so desire. As I stated in my original posts on the subject, I started having sex by my own choice when I was 12. My partner was 15 or 16. He asked first, but I kept going back for more-and never, ever regretted it.”

Insane Academe: Catholic university in Florida eager to host ISIS student club

America’s colleges and universities are more than left-wing, they’ve gone stark raving mad.

In 2015 America, would a university allow a student club celebrating genocidal killers like Hitler and the Nazis? Would a U.S. university host a student club glorifying serial killers and mass murderers? Would a U.S. university approve a student club that glorifies chopping off people’s heads and raises funds for the murderers? Would that university actually funnel hundreds of dollars to support that student club?

Then, to top it off, would the university that does all that be a CATHOLIC university?

You think the thought of the above is outrageous? Think again.

James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas conducted a sting operation on Florida’s Barry University and uncovered just how utterly perverse the university is.

Here’s the account, O’Keefe Exposes Another University Sympathetic to ISIS,” March 29, 2015:

Award-winning journalist and New York Times’ best-selling author James O’Keefe released a second video in as many weeks today exposing university brass sympathetic to ISIS. Last week, O’Keefe released a video showing a dean at Cornell University advising a Project Veritas investigative journalist on how to start and fund a pro-ISIS club on campus.

Today’s video reveals several high-level officials and a professor at Barry University actually sanctioning a club with the stated purpose of sending material aid to ISIS. Barry University is a prestigious south Florida institution whose alumni include the current Prime Minister of Haiti and the current Attorney General of the Bahamas.

In O’Keefe’s latest video, several Barry University officials as well as a professor appear a little too eager to guide a Project Veritas investigative journalist through the process of forming a pro-ISIS club. Derek Bley, Coordinator for Leadership Development & Student Organizations, was fully aware that the proposed student group was being formed to aid ISIS and he expressed no ethical qualms whatsoever. Disturbingly, Bley’s only concern appeared to be the use of the acronym “ISIS” in the club’s name: “We’re not here to limit people and their clubs…  but I would recommend maybe coming up with one or two other possible names just in case this one does not get through.”

The Project Veritas journalist also had a discussion with Frederique Frage, Associate Director of International and Multicultural Programs, and Daisy Santiago, International & Multicultural Programs Coordinator, both of whom were incredibly supportive of the proposed mission of the pro-ISIS club, just not its name.

Frage and Santiago appeared to be concerned only with the club’s name in a joint meeting with the Project Veritas journalist. In the open office setting where the meeting took place, Frage said: “By all means we support any student wanting to start their own organization… the only thing, as far as the name, the thing is, because technically our country is at war with ISIS.” And Santiago opined: “We talked about maybe saying [Sympathetic Students] in support of in the Middle East… as opposed to [saying] ISIS.”

Note: In other words, Barry University official Frederique Frage fully recognizes that it is improper to host a pro-ISIS student club because doing so would be aiding and abetting an enemy of the United States. There’s a word for Frage and Barry University: Traitor.

In a truly shocking and incredible development, Professor Pawena Sirimangkala signed the necessary documentation to give the Project Veritas journalist everything she needed to start the pro-ISIS club (our journalist, of course, did not). Unbelievably, just prior to signing the documentation, our journalist told Professor Sirimangkala that the name of the club had been changed, but the mission of the club was going to remain the same. Incredulously, Professor Sirimangkala simply responded: “perfect, perfect… I’ll sign… I’m glad to do it.”

“It is disturbing to see our nation’s university system festooned with professors and administrators that are sympathetic to ISIS,” stated James O’Keefe, President of Project Veritas. “First, we saw this horrifying support at Cornell University and now we have numerous officials at Barry taking things even further. As demonstrated at Cornell and Barry, our nation’s university system is being overrun by those who subscribe to ivory-tower political correctness and that is truly dangerous to our nation and our nation’s students. It is time to stop looking the other way and address this very serious issue.”

Useful Idiots of Barry University

Founded in 1940, Barry University is a private, Catholic university in Miami, Florida. It has more than 4,000 students, a campus of 54 buildings, and 40,000 alumni.

UPDATE:

Barry University has issued a statement denying all this. Briefly, President/Sister Bevilaqua says in an official statement that:

  1. “Barry University does not and never will allow or authorize the formation of an ISIS-related humanitarian aid group on campus. There has been no formation of any such group at Barry University. No paper work requesting such an organization has ever been filed with the proper authorities at the University.”
  2. “The images and video released were edited and spliced to unfairly represent the university and staff being featured.”

Regarding #1: Well, of course, no such pro-ISIS group has actually been formed in Barry University! Project Veritas’ sting was about university officials being approached about the possible formation of such a student club, to which official after official applauded and provided advice, including a professor giving her signature to the (bogus) application. Can President Bevilaqua deny that?

Regarding #2: President Bevilaqua needs to show, not merely assert, just how Project Veritas had “edited and spliced” the images and video “to unfairly represent the university and staff.” Is the university denying that its officials Derek Bley and Frederique Frage said what they said to the undercover student? Is the university denying that Professor Pawena Sirimangkala had signed the undercover student’s application to form the pro-ISIS club? — all of which was captured on camera?

In short, I don’t buy Bevilaqua’s denial. Watch Project Veritas’ video for yourself!

JAMES O’KEEFE DUPES HOLLYWOOD WITH FAKE ANTI-FRACKING FILM

james-okeefe-veritasscreencap

by CHARLIE SPIERING  20 May 2014

Undercover journalist James O’Keefe released his latest video featuring a sting operation to expose Hollywood environmentalists.

The video features an undercover journalist from Project Veritas posing as “Muhammad,” a member of a Middle Eastern oil family, offering $9 million in funding to American filmmakers to fund an anti-fracking movie. He was joined by a second undercover activist posing as an ad executive.

O’Keefe entraps actor Ed Begley Jr., actress Mariel Hemingway, and director Josh Tickell, who agree to the film while promising to hide the source of the funds.

The undercover activist tells the group that “if Washington, D.C., continues fracking, America will be energy-efficient, and then they won’t need my oil anymore.”

In a phone call to Tickell, the “ad executive” states, “My client’s interest is to end American energy independence; your interest is to end fracking. And you guys understand that?”

Tickell’s response: “Correct. Yes, super clear.”

The environmental team even submitted a video of Oscar-nominated actor Mark Ruffalo offering his unwavering support for the fictitious anti-fracking film project.

Tickell is a Sundance Film Festival Winner and the director of environmental message movies FuelThe Big Fix, and PUMP.

Conservative activist O’Keefe claims Cuomo targeting his group

cuomo

Conservative activist James O’Keefe is accusing New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s administration of targeting his group with document requests and a subpoena, claiming the Democratic governor’s recent comments critical of conservatives “aren’t simply words.”

Read the story and see the video at: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/01/23/conservative-activist-okeefe-claims-cuomo-targeting-his-group/

cuomo_idiotO’Keefe, whose Project Veritas is behind a series of hidden-camera investigations against left-leaning groups and causes, made the claims on the heels of the controversy over a recent Cuomo interview. In it, Cuomo blasted “extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay” and said they “have no place” in New York. He later walked back his remarks, and said they were being taken out of context in the media.

But O’Keefe claimed that Cuomo’s government is acting on those words, revealing that the Department of Labor has hit his office in Westchester County, N.Y., with demands for financial documents for months. He compared it to IRS targeting of conservative groups nationwide.

“Governor Cuomo’s shocking words this past week aren’t simply words,” O’Keefe said in a statement. “Governor Cuomo and the New York Department of Labor are on a witch hunt, demanding all documents and financials since our founding. … His goal, of course, is to harass us and limit our effectiveness by tying us up in court. Just like President Obama used the IRS to target and suppress conservatives, Governor Cuomo is using his Department of Labor to do the same exact thing.”

A spokesman for the state labor office told The Daily Beast that it is legally required to ensure businesses pay their part of an unemployment insurance fund and provide information about outside contractors.

Requests for comment from FoxNews.com to the Department of Labor and governor’s office have not yet been returned.

O’Keefe, who repeatedly has been accused of deceptive practices by liberal groups, has built a reputation as a conservative provocateur. His hidden-camera investigations contributed to the downfall of advocacy group ACORN. With Project Veritas, his group continues to expose alleged fraud and misbehavior with the federal health care law, green jobs programs and more.

In accusing New York state of targeting the organization, Project Veritas released a subpoena issued on Jan. 9 from the Department of Labor. The document orders representatives from the organization to show up on Jan. 28 with a slew of documents, ranging from Social Security returns to unemployment insurance returns to check stubs.

The group claims its finances are “meticulously maintained to the penny” and calls the inquiries “meritless.” A statement said Project Veritas would be relocating to New Jersey.

Further, the group claimed that it complied with an earlier document request and showed up for a scheduled meeting on Dec. 13, but state labor officers “never showed up.”

“Just like the IRS, they are simply intimidating and targeting us,” Project Veritas said in a statement, while also trying to raise money off the allegations.
