VIDEO: Nicole Sandler interviews James O'Keefe who could only respond with, "Are you defaming me?"

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

My friend and radio host Nicole Sandler is at Netroots Nation, and bumped smack dab into parolee and fraud, James O'Keefe. Please go to her site to read more, but here is the video that she recorded herself, with her own Flip cam, and it is completely unedited. Please watch all the way to the end.

Wow, what a smug, condescending, unresponsive little brat. He is clearly a coward who relies on his "bodyguards" (my word) to shield him from those who want nothing more than to get to the truth, a concept that is impossible for him to grasp.

Nicole pushed harder than any other interviewer I've seen. If only more journalists would be as persistent.

UPDATED, reversed!... If James O'Keefe was forbidden by a judge to leave N.J., why was he in DC?

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

UPDATE: A federal magistrate judge issued a new order granting O’Keefe’s request to leave New Jersey

Parolee James O’Keefe was forbidden to leave his home state of New Jersey by a judge:

Since O’Keefe is on probation for tampering with the phones in Senator Mary Landrieu’s New Orleans district office, he has to get judicial approval to travel outside New Jersey, where he resides with his family. In a ruling yesterday, Magistrate Judge Daniel E. Knowles, III denied O’Keefe’s motion to make seven trips outside the Garden State between May 20 and July 5.

Knowles’s order does not detail his reasons for vetoing the 26-year-old O’Keefe’s motion.

So does Washington DC count, or has New Jersey been incorporated somehow?

Controversial right-wing activist James O’Keefe is in Washington DC today attending the Faith and Freedom Conference.

Think Progress has a photo proving O'Keefe was there.

Oops.

Statement from student re: faux scandal involving Rep. Anthony Weiner

ADDED- Check out the date on this tweet. It was very early on in the attempted smear, and it seems like they were scouting women who followed Rep. Weiner and noted Genette specifically (click to enlarge):

Original post:

The NY Daily News has the entire statement from a young college student who has been harassed, smeared, you name it, as a result of a cruel hoax involving Rep. Anthony Weiner, so please go there to read the whole thing. Here's an excerpt of her statement:

The last 36 hours have been the most confusing, anxiety-ridden hours of my life. I've watched in sheer disbelief as my name, age, location, links to any social networking site I've ever used, my old phone numbers and pictures have been passed along from stranger to stranger.

As you can see from these screen grabs, one of James O'Keefe's gang (the Project Veritas reference in his bio was the giveaway) was obsessing on this ridiculous farce for hours (click to enlarge):

And for Andrew Breitbart's involvement and the sick fixation of others, plus background, go to the DKos recap here.

IRS okays nonprofit status to James O'Keefe's "Project Veritas"

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

James O'Keefe was forbidden to leave his home state of New Jersey by his probation officer, he's facing a civil suit in California, yet he is now granted his wish for non-profit status for his "Project Veritas". Outrageous enough for you?

However, I was told by someone who knows more about this kind of thing than I do that the status can be revoked if someone can show he's partisan. Which shouldn't be too difficult.

Via HuffPo:

"We're pleased that Project Veritas' nonprofit status has been approved. Our nonpartisan mission of exposing corruption while training new, investigative journalists can now be fully supported by donors who require a tax-exemption for their generous contributions."

On its website, Project Veritas describes itself as bringing "transparency into the back-room deals" by using investigative journalism tactics.

In March, a controversial video sing produced by Project Veritas led to the resignation of two NPR executives.

And by transparency, he means for anyone but him. And by investigative journalism he means he means edited videos that mislead and smear. And by donors, he means those stupid enough to fall for this.

Judge confines James O'Keefe to New Jersey

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

James O'Keefe, you're grounded! I wonder what the fraudulent little parolee did this time? ACORN's gone, but not forgotten; he's had his sick idea of fun with NPR; he's already stuck his greedy, grimy little hand out for donations; avoided the very same cameras he feels free to turn on others; squirmed out of more serious charges thanks to connections; and did his level best to punk a CNN correspondent. What's left?

Via The Smoking Gun:

Since O’Keefe is on probation for tampering with the phones in Senator Mary Landrieu’s New Orleans district office, he has to get judicial approval to travel outside New Jersey, where he resides with his family. In a ruling yesterday, Magistrate Judge Daniel E. Knowles, III denied O’Keefe’s motion to make seven trips outside the Garden State between May 20 and July 5.

Knowles’s order does not detail his reasons for vetoing the 26-year-old O’Keefe’s motion.

Fake Jimmy Olsen, you've been a ba-a-ad boy. No TV, no iPhone, no iPad, no dessert, and no trips for you!

Damned activist judges.

VIDEO: The worst music video you'll ever see, starring... James O'Keefe

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

As I noted in this post, James O'Keefe is trying his darndest to get "non-partisan" status for his "Project Veritas" to avoid paying taxes. He also, laughably, considers himself to be a wily, top-notch journalist ("Look, Geppetto news media, I'm a real boy!").

This petulant, Michael Jackson wannabe, this well-connected delusional fraud of a parolee is once again proving his lack of worth with this abomination:

James O'Keefe trying to get "non-partisan" status for his "Project Veritas" to avoid paying taxes

Via my pal, the amazing Spocko, with permission, and I would add the words "fraud", "hypocridiot" and "spoiled brat" to his two splendid paragraphs. Spocko checked the facts and vouches for their accuracy. The screen grabs above don't hurt either.  Bolding is mine:

Right wing political activist and federal parolee James O'Keefe has engaged the high powered right wing PR firm, Shirley & Banister Public Affairs to help him promote his next undercover attack videos. The firm's founder, Craig Shirley, helped create the 1988 “Willie Horton” ad. The firm also works for the NRA and Citizens United. In the past O'Keefe successfully got high priced GOP lawyers to haggle his felony wiretapping charge down to "entering federal property under false pretenses." on a pro bono basis.

What is S&BPA doing for O'Keefe now? Well besides getting him in Playboy (in an article, not a centerfold), one task appears to be getting non-partisan 501 c. 3 status for O'Keefe's "Project Veritas" so they won't have to pay any taxes for funding our military, criminal justice system or of course, NPR.
