Project Veritas Action: undercover Trump Inauguration plots

    colorfuloneposted 2 months ago

    In this video, Project Veritas investigators uncover a group known as the DC Anti-fascist Coalition plotting to disrupt President-Elect Donald Trump’s inauguration by deploying butyric acid at the National Press Club during the Deploraball event scheduled for January 19th.

    The meeting, captured on hidden camera, was held at Comet Ping Pong, a DC pizza restaurant that is better known as the location of the Pizzagate controversy. The coalition members discuss the steps they would need to take to halt the Deploraball event. Project Veritas notified the FBI, Secret Service and DC Metro Police of the content of this video prior to its release.

    Undercover Video:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MHZSfhd1X_8

    There are several other groups planning to disrupt the inauguration that are being investigated. James O'Keefe said at the end of this video that he would let us know who is behind all of this.  I believe I already know who the evil money man is.  "S"

    Should be interesting to follow this series of undercover investigations by Project Veritas.

      I am all for a peaceful transfer of power to the new Trump administration. But, I am also for all of the planned protests that are to take place on or around January 20th across the country, as long as they are peaceful, do not destroy property or in the case of Washington D.C., not interfere with the inauguration proceedings.


      That will all be impossible for the media to ignore.

        Outside of protesting the President himself (rather than what he is doing), what is the purpose of these "peaceful" protests?

          Just that, Wilderness, to divert attention to the actual displeasure of the many. His campaign and how it was conducted is not going to give many much confidence as to how he moves in the future. Nothing wrong with that in a free society?

          I had to live with all the insufferable Tea Party protests during the early period of the Obama administration, so conservatives can live with this....

          They will have to.

            Not particularly interested in a temper tantrum from children that didn't get their way.  And certainly not interested in that tantrum when the goal is to disrupt other people's lives to gain attention.  Reminds me of the little boy, lying on the floor kicking his legs to get attention.

            Not sure they have to.  I saw where one state has declared a new law concerning economic disruption (during protests) to be a criminal offense.  Maybe we'll get actual protests, with something to say, instead of simply hurting others for the attention it gets.

              Why are you so concerned about ATTENTION? There is nothing wrong with protests getting attention in of itself, is it? That is what they are designed for. If the Right interferes with First Admendment rights, I guarantee that there is going to be hell to pay from every vantage point.

                Why concerned?  Because that is what drives the misbehavior so very common in these "peaceful" protests.  Personally, I predict that such laws are going to become far more common - that people are sick and tired of "peaceful" protests that block freeways, block public access or burn communities.  One way or another it's got to stop.

                Free speech does not include the right of causing harm to others, no matter how much liberals like the idea or how easily it gets the media out to take their picture.

                  You are just against protests in principle, because they express ideas that you don't want to hear, why not just admit it?

                  I did say that 'peaceful protest' does not include the three exceptions I made in a previous posts.  My right to protest is sancrosanct, regardless of the opinion of the Rightwinger. If I had the time and resources, I would be marching and supporting the 'big one' involving our fair maidens to take place the day after the inauguration to lend support.

                    No where in there will you find a single reference to the idea being protested.  Protest all you want, just leave me and others out of it.  Confine the activity to protesters rather than everyone in town.

          The worst part about the "fake news" movement is the assertion from right-wingers that if MSM is unreliable then the alt-right websites must be reliable - and they have the president backing them up.  I'm all for making sure our news outlets stay honest but it doesn't mean writing off all major networks and clinging to the independent websites that agree with your POV.

          If you're truly interested in getting rid of fake news then check the sources and validity of EVERYTHING you read and see.  Try to put your biases aside and think critically about things.

          PV has a notable history of selectively editing tapes therefore making things they put out questionable at least.  I'm not dismissing everything but please take the time to acknowledge that nothing they put out can be taken as absolute truth.

            O'Keefe does not edit the videos and audio.  They do get lengthy footage, and so the videos they prepare for the public have segments of unedited footage and audio on them so they do not get too long. 

            However, when O'Keefe gives the evidence to law enforcement, he gives them the whole works to go through.  That is why law enforcement make arrests, because they know it isn't edited and altered.  Its the truth.   

            Thankfully, there a investigations happening because of evidence Project Veritas' undercover work.  True investigative journalists are hard to fine on mainstream.

      Those loud ones are most likely the ones answering the ads to protest and get paid to agitate the crowds being bused in.  At any rate, they aren't real protesters if they are getting paid.  The mentally unstable indoctrinated 'snowflakes' don't take much to get triggered, just push their buttons.

      Ads in two dozen cities offer protesters up to $2,500 to agitate at Trump inaugural

      Peaceful protests are fine, people have that right, but when it becomes organized chaos to disrupt an ingratiation that is something else.  It is illegal. Hopefully, the not so peaceful demonstrations all get stopped dead beforehand.   Its a time of celebration!

      "Free speech" does not include disrupting the lives of others, and doubly so when the sole purpose is to obtain media attention.  If that "speech" cannot stand on it's own, without requiring damage to others, then it is not free.

        Who decides if that speech is disruptive? Is is just that ideas and things are said that you don't want to hear?

        Who decides if 'that speech stands on its own'? Trump?

        I describe 'damage' as violence, vandalism, or impinging upon the public thoroughfare. In the latter case, people may have to get permits, but otherwise, let the protests continue.

    The latest Project Veritas video reveals DisruptJ20 plot to Chain Trains and Halt the DC Metro.

    This video exposes the collusion between the various groups under the DisruptJ20 umbrella. The video shows that DJ20 is not simply a movement of fringe groups but instead a nefarious organization.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIjbkYLI1nY

    “Disabling trains constitutes an act of terrorism” under 18 USC 1992, which states offenders “…shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both, and if the offense results in the death of any person, shall be imprisoned for any terms of years or for life, or subject to death.” O’Keefe says.

    A workshop attendee said it is OK to punch Trump supporters in the throat.

    Like many other people, I am wonder why DC police were ordered to turn off body cams during the Trump Inauguration.  That seems rather strange.  Seems to me they would want them on as evidence of anyone violating the laws.

      "Trump stands for tyranny, greed, and misogyny. He is the champion of neo-nazis and white Nationalists, of the police who kill the Black, Brown and poor on a daily basis, of racist border agents and sadistic prison guards, of the FBI and NSA who tap your phone and read your email.

      He is the harbinger of even more climate catastrophe, deportation, discrimination, and endless war. He continues to deny the existence of climate change, in spite of all the evidence, putting the future of the whole human race at stake.The KKK, Vladimir Putin, Golden Dawn, and the Islamic State all cheered his victory. If we let his inauguration go unchallenged, we are opening the door to the future they envision.

      Trump’s success confirms the bankruptcy of representative democracy. Rather than using the democratic process as an alibi for inaction, we must show that no election could legitimize his agenda. Neither the Democrats nor any other political party or politician will save us—they just offer a weaker version of the same thing. If there is going to be a positive change in this society, we have to make it ourselves, together, through direct action."

    James O'Keefe provides updates about our meetings with law enforcement officials, how the protesters are scaling back their plans because of the Veritas videos, and HuffPo's validation of the #DisruptJ20 videos released earlier this week.
    2:16 Update:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hLjI915Zw9A&t=2s

    I won't expect CNN or any of the mainstream news sites to run this story by one of the best modern day investigative journalists in America, James O'Keefe.   

    I saw videos of protesters having to be pushes back by police in front of the Deploraball last night.  Tear gas and something was used at one point on protesters.  Some sucker punches were thrown at Trump supporters, one man was beaten bloody.  Urine and feces and other things were thrown at Trump supporters.  And, there are some Trump supporters that said they returned some punches at agitators in self-defense. 

    The Deploraball was a wonderful celebration inside where people shared conversation, food, drinks, dances and listened to speakers. 

    Thanks to the police for making sure that went well and everyone who attended got to have fun.   Except for the deplorable protesters outside.   

    ADDED:  Last month one of the organizers of the Deploraball was poisoned, Roger Stone.  He is a long time personal friend and a supporter of Donald Trump.

                Go read. Snopes provides sources. They don't just make stuff up. They draw conclusions based on sourced material. That's how reliable journalism works and history, for that matter. One of your political colleagues wrote a nasty article about Snopes that they approved of child rape (or something like that), except that when you go and read what their conclusions about this case in Idaho (I think), it was nothing of the sort. The writer drew this child rape accusation based on the sourced information from the sheriff. So, it wasn't Snopes that she had a problem with, it was the sheriff, and even then, the sheriff didn't say what she accused Snopes of concluding.

                  Can we both agree that this thread is not about Snopes?  I have no respect for the site because they have published plenty of garbage, and sources they use are garbage when they do that. Its called collaborating.   But, you go right ahead and be happy with that biased site...with my blessing.

                  Did you watch any of the undercover videos from Project Veritas?

                    Provide an example of Snopes' garbage. Provide an example of their sourced garbage.

                    Project Veritas was found to be paying the people they are filming to say things that aren't true.

        I used snopes while acknowledging that some people don't trust that it's impartial.  I then stated that it was the sources within the article that you should look at, but you were too stuck on snopes.  Would you like me to go through and pick out the sources myself and post them all individually so you can look past the fact that snopes put them together?

          Theres no difference between snopes, fair, cnn, abc or veritas or I suspect ctv. If there is differences its just in the way they lean or the amount of power and money behind them. The tactics are the same. Some more refined and subtle. I imagine some of the initials are interchangeable ie some probably front for others.

            Okay, please enlighten me.  Where do you get information that you deem to be reliable?

              None of them. Ya gotta glean the truth out of them like a needle in a haystack. If that.

              This site appears somewhat reliable although I would not stake my rarely litigated reputation on it.

                This site seems reputable to a certain degree. Not as much plot as the other site but has lots of characters
