2:02 pm
so instead, i'd like to point out just a few things that might haves escaped your notice. if you're mig like me, when you saw this video, you realized there's probably a side to james o'keef' you never knew. [laughter] so having seen it, you may not now be surprised to learn that in 2002 he was the lead in a stage production of george gershwin's crazy for you. in 2011 he starred in another music video titled land drew dance, and as recently as last year he was cast in the lead role for an outdoor production of oklahoma! [cheers and applause] who knew? [laughter] so what we do know is that he's an outstanding, incredibly effective investigative journalist like no other.
2:03 pm
when he founded project veritas, he didn't just revive investigative journalism, he reinvented it. we are pleased to have him here with us today -- [applause] and are truly grateful for his existence. ladies and gentlemen, please give the warmest east valley welcome to james o'keefe. [cheers and applause] [laughter] >> thank you sou much. what an honor to be here many southern california. i'm -- don't brandt it. [laughter] should i sign that? wow. well, i've never seen so much
2:04 pm
musical talent in this room. [laughter] i mow i'm in california, but i was telling randy, i've never seen -- b singing? i mean, music? yes, i'm a very musical person. i am the founder of project veritas, project truth. [cheers and applause] most of you familiar with project veritas, we expose, we expose powerful people, and we do it with such flair. [laughter] i don't think i would have started project veritas if i wasn't a musical person, an artistic person. i think it's kind of an artistic mission to expose them. we're not really a political organization, andnd we don't really advocate for solutions or, you know, public policy. we just explore them. becausenl there's only one trut, there's only one set of facts. you're not entitled to multiple realities. now, our mantra, our motto is be brave, do something. and in the -- and you've got to be courageous. you've got to -- but before i
2:05 pm
get into all the stories and some types of stories, i promised, as you all know, i was lead in oklahoma! this past year. the musical, curly the cowboy. i think i actually have a picturee of -- oh, there we are. that was me. [cheers and applause] now, this was an outdoor production of oklahoma, which was great because i didn't really have to act that much, i just looked around. so this is me this past summer. i took -- you may say how do you have time to do a musical? some well, you know, i just took 19 daysal of rehearsals, and thn we did this performance. so in the interest of being that i'm in a crowd with -- someone here was in ben hur, right? there's some really theatrical people. i am going to sing for you, "oh, what a beautiful morning." here we go. and i don't remember the pitch, so i'm just going for it. ready? [laughter] this is me when i -- i sang this
2:06 pm
on a horse, on a horse. and and i'm a little allergic to horses, but i pulled it off. ♪ bells of bright golden haze on the meadow -- ♪ muck veils of bright golden haze on the meadow. ♪ the corn is as high as an elephant thigh -- >> ready? ♪ and it looks like it's climbing clear up to the sky. ♪ oh, what a beautiful morning, oh, what a beautiful day. ♪ i've got a beautiful feeling everything's going my way. ♪ >> second verse, here we go. ♪ oh, the cattle are standing like statues -- ♪ oh, cattle are standing like
2:07 pm
statues. ♪ they don't turn their head as they see me ride by -- ♪ but a little brown maverick is winking her eye. ♪ oh, what a beautiful morning, oh, what a beautiful day. ♪ i've got a beautiful feeling everything's going my way. ♪ oh, what a beautiful day ♪♪ [cheers and applause] >> all right, one more. one, two, three, pour, one, two, three, four. ♪ oklahoma where the wind comes sleeping down the plains. ♪ where the waiving wheat can sure smell sweet --

[laughter] all right. now, i'm very optimistic person. i'm a very hopeful person. and i travel around country, and i encounter a lot of cynicism and a lot of hopelessness.
2:09 pm
and i hope over the next 30 minutes i can, i can inspire you just a a little bit. and i did sing oh what a beautiful morning, and i think it's kind of a metaphor for where we are right now in this country in that we are in some dark times. people are very divided, and they shouldn't be on most things. so we are on this book tour. we've written this book, i've written this book called "american muckraker." all proceeds to go to project veritas, ander it's called muckraker, what is a muckraker? what does that word mean? it means a journalist who exposed information that that powerful people don't want exposed, releasing unauthorized information. this country is founded on very unique principles, one of which is the first amendment. with we talk about first amendment, but what does the first amendment mean? if it means informed consent. it means you can't elect your people unless you know what's
2:10 pm
going on. so identify written this book -- i've written w this book, and it took me five years to write book. and i really thought a lot about principles and values that we cherish, and i try to define how to be a truth-teller. how to speak the truth in clown world. we're living in clown world. so i'm going to get to our mission. by the way, our mission at project veritas is to expose waste, fraud, abuse, corruption. you alll remember the time i wet in as a pimp with my female companion dressed like that. that's's how we were dressed. [laughter] and we go undercover into these institutions. we use pretension, we use disguise because if we just go up to people and identify ourselves as reporters, they'll nevere tell us truth. so we have to do these things where, you know, last 12 years i've been exposing these institutions, and they've hit back at me hard. but b this week something extraordinary happened. president jeff zucker at cnn resigned. [cheers and applause]
2:11 pm
she's waving the flag back there, the american flag. and he kid resign. and he did some bad things. more of these things are going to come out. and because news organization cmn apparently doesn't have any core values or behave ethically, all these people now, chris cuomo and jake tapper are attacking each other. i don't know if you saw that. and i don't know what's going to happen.. maybe cnn will actually get back to its mission of reporting the news. stranger things have have happened. but we went undercover intoing cmn recently -- into cnn recently. i'd like to believe that but not for what we did, zucker would not be leaving. this man, charlie chester, is a control room direct or. i want to show you some videotape of this. this is one of the biggest things veritas ever did. charlie chester at cnn talking about cnn's mission.
2:12 pm
and, by way with, he doesn't say they're the most trusted name in news. he says they're a propaganda network designed to hurt donald trump. listen to this. [inaudibleot conversations] >> him as a young geriatric. we were creating story. >> we were creating a story there that we with i think tha's right. i believe it that if it wasn't for cnn. i don't know that trump would have got voted out or focus was to get trump out of office right without it saying it that's what it was right there. he makes the admission >> right there he makes the admission, our focus, to get trump, to help biden, to put aviator shades on biden to make him look cool. and he says, quote: without saying that's what our focus is.
2:13 pm
so right there you see what our mission is. we need more of these things. cnn, the most -- james earl jones,ru the most trusted name n news. why isn't it cnn, quote, our focus is to get trump out? listen, if you want to be a propaganda network, that's your right. just call yourself a propaganda network. but they don't. so we had to use hidden cameras. this guy did not know he was being recorded. in this clip he talks about the covid pandemic being gangbusters for cnn's ratings because it's all about fear, right many it's all about money. it's notn' about science. but don't take my word for it, let me quote cnn's control room director. covid yang busters, right and they put the numbers on the >> and they put the numbers on the screen, the death toll. you can't turn on -- i mean, i don't think anybody here watchey watches cnn. they have, like, 17 viewers, most of them in airports.
2:14 pm
but their content, their, this stuff is shared on instagram and facebook and twitter and google news feed. tech companies share it. but here you have the death numbers with wolf blitzer. and chester says we do this intentionally. we put the death toll on the screen to make it higher. he goes, we need more people to die so that our ratings are can go up at organizations like cnn. and many people in this room come up toam me, james, what's behind this? i'm showing you what's behind it. this is the media machine trying to scare you so they can make money, get ratings and to do what they do. but don't take my word for it. let me quote the guy behind the curtain. let's make it higher like isn't it high enough, you know today like it would make our point better if it was hot guys literally want >> with the guy's literally wanting the deaths to be higher. why isn't it higher?
2:15 pm
we need more people to die. this is, this is what -- this is our media. it's a disgrace. it's a disgrace. youut already mow this, but the- know this, but the more ec -- we can expose this, the better. we need more information. you can elect all the people you want to elected office, but unless you can change people's heartshe and minds including in your state of california where you've failed to recall your governor, that means that that people in your state voted, disagree with you. so unless if you can change their hearts and minds, you're not going to be the able to fix the issues that you're having because many of those people believe what they see on cnn, okay? so it's really an information war. an' that's not an easy thing to hear. we want easy solutions. throw money at politicians, fix it right away. but as long as you have people that believe what they read and what they see, you're going to have the same problems. so at veritas we have a lot of
2:16 pm
fun. one of the best things we ever did was this. i don't know if you saw this, we have whistleblowers everywhere. we have informants everywhere. that may be why fbi came to my house, i don't know. another frequently-asked questions, james, what's next? my response? what is not next b? we have people everywhere, and you'll see a story come out tomorrow, by the way, big story coming out, whistleblower coming out. now, one in this -- in this video, one of the most amazing moments ever at project veritas, one such insider gave me access to president jeff zucker's 9 a.m. conference calls. [laughter] and i proceeded to record those 9 a.m. conference calls for two months nonstop. and is one day -- [laughter] [applause] see, it's all about
2:17 pm
transparency. we want to know how they make the sausage, we want to know how they manufacture the concept, to quote noam chomsky. so on the 61st day, i decided to the conference call and say hello to jeff zucker. and tell him that i had been recordingg him for the two months. [laughter] and my colleague live streamed this. you're about to watch it. -a live stream moment, unplanned, unmuted, diagnosing into the conference call, here we go. hey, jeff zucker, you there? this is james o'keefe. we've been listening to your cnn calls for basically two months, recording everything. just wanted to ask you some questions, if you have a minute. do you still feel you're the most trusted name in news? because i have to say from what i've been hearing on these phone calls, i don't know about that. we've got a lot of recordings to case not really that independent of a journalist. thank you for tr
2:18 pm
comments. so everybody in light of that. i think what we'll do is we'll we'll set up a new system. i was kind [laughter] >> i was kind of shocked that he actually talkedded to me for a minute. thank you for your comments. we'll set up a n new system. and i always say to my staff, we'll just get on the new system, jeffer. we're already on the new -- jeff zucker. don't lie, don't deceive, was veritas will just find you. we are watching, we are waiting. we're everywhere. [laughter] [applause] in fact, the person, the persons or person who got us access to thisis is still there -- [laughter] and if the person or persons inside abc news who got us access to the amy probach --
2:19 pm
robach/jeff epstein situation, that person is still there. fast forward, i'm in california, and we did a big story. i would have to say the story we did on the teacher in california in sacramento, i don't know if you remember this one. you guys have a lot of very interesting people this many california. in california. particularly your public schoolteachers. now, our motto has changed. in the beginning we would have to infiltrate. now the people on the inside come to us, and someone had sent us a picture of a classroom in sacramento with the teacher was hanging a a picture of chairman mao and antifa if flag in the classroom are. i found that interesting. so we sent one of our brave undercover journalists to meet with thisgu guy, his name is gabrielle. this was in august of 2021.
2:20 pm
met with him and recorded him talking about how he wants to to students into revolutionaries. this is at a coffee shop in sacramento. underneath everybody was scared the f out of the students he says a >> scare the f out of the students, he says, and send them to eventss where they'll get extra credit for protesting with antifa. i wonder if the parents mow abouten this. eflection. that's there. like i have an antifa flag on my roof on my wall and as student complained about that and you said it made them feel uncomfortable. well, it's meant to make fastest feeling uncomfortable. so you feel uncomfortable. i don't really know what he's doing here. he wants to >> he wants to make your students feel uncomfortable. so we confronted this man in the street in his neighborhood, and he told us that we were making him feel uncomfortable. >> gabriel?
2:21 pm
hello, how are you? i am a journalist with project veritas. >> [inaudible] reporting we are recording but i think you're going to be more interested in what i have to say here. there is saying isn't feel comfortable by the way. he's >> there he is saying he doesn't feel comfortable. by the way, he's got a hammer and sickle shirt on. i mean, this guy's a high school teacher, communist. he was even stamping homework assignments with stalin's face, and this was actually happening. andd it happened, and hay saw -- i mean, hay knew that it was happening, they did nothing. it wasn't until veritas showed up with recordings of the man that everyone got outraged. and that's real scandal. why are the people at the school still there? so we released this video, but something really amazing happened. there were school board meetings the next day at interkum, sacramento, california. hundreds of parents flooded the
2:22 pm
school board meeting -- [applause] when i -- there was a moment in, you know, the trajectory of project veritas that really defined what we're all about, it's causing that what ida tar bell originally termed and andrewok andrew breitbart, the name of his book, righteous indig nation. everyone in thisir room agrees, i'm preaching to the choir, and that's okay. but you have to get people who don't agree with you to agree with you if you want to affect change. so what you're about to see is that. these people are not like you, not necessarily. they're not necessarily republicans, they're not democrats, they're not necessarily activated at all in politics, they're just angry. andd they're angry mama bears. and they're seeing their kids, their kids being affected by this dangerous when it's communism or fascism or whatever you want to call it, abuse. it's a form of child abuse.
2:23 pm
and i'm going to play clip. i really like this woman and what she says and then a couple other parents. again, organic, i roy white house --° righteous, passionate people that are just pissed off. >> and in two weeks, in thirteen days, he was allowed to change my daughter's mind about some fascistat crap that's going on right in this school. [cheers and applause] tired. this is ridiculous. i'm from texas. this does not go on in, texas. >> i'm from texas. this does not go on in texas. there are two t grades higher in california period. so to think that my very sound-minded daughter would go against me and my wished and and our values in our home to be able to go and support this man, and he is putting her in harm's way, what the hell are y'all doing? >> it goes on and on.
2:24 pm
these parents were just so outraged. and it got to such -- it was really one of the -- we live streamed this on instagram. they flooded in. parents continue to flood -- this was right around the time what was happening in virginia. >> what has been exposed is exactly when what i was concerned about happening -- >> let me tell you, i'm not shocked. why? because there's another teacher right down the road, and we -- [inaudible] we did the same thing to my son. >> there's a lot of teach teachers california doing this, they just need to be exposed. now, what was interesting about is they actually -- in california, it was a very difficult state to fire a tenured teacher, they actually fired this teacher after we exposed it. [applause] and local news covered it. well, this is local cbs 13. >>as the past month michigan
2:25 pm
gabrielle -- gabriel gipe has been fired. >> a lot of people say, james with, how do you get the information out there? that's another question i was asked in the holloway here. where do you -- hallway here. where do you distribute your videos? and i say cbs news distributes my videos. [laughter] see, you're not thinking big enough. you guys -- to i see it on breitbart? sure. do i see it on fox? well, hopefully. but i want them to talk about it, okay? and you say -- [applause] well, that's impossible. no, it's n not possible. i'm showing you that it is possible. but with it requires getting information that is so powerful that they can't ignore it. that's ooh -- that's really our mission, isn't it? it'sot to get information that's visual, not just text or speeches or white papers or articles, but visual information. there's a chapter in this book, "american muckraker," where i say image, obviously, images
2:26 pm
transfix, and they are more powerful than the spoken word. so there are some things as a country i still think we are united on, very few, but you don't abuse children. you don't brag about it. and there are certain a things i think we could focus on that we could get things like this to happen. you might say, well, that's just one teacher. and i say, well, you're not going to change the world all in a new york minute. it's going to take a little while. you have to expose all of them. and we need an army of these exposers, these grassroots people. veritas is a lot of incredible people coming to us, and one recent one involved documents from d the defense department. this is, i don't know if you saw this story. now we have whistleblowers everywhere, we have sources everywhere. people giveiv us documents insie the department of defense. literally, the pentagon papers. it'ses interesting, i said yesterday i e don't even know te so-called. pentagon papers from the 1970s.
2:27 pm
was the -- would new york times even publish those these days if it made the administration look bad? i don't know. but a lot of these sources have nowhere else to go. they really don't have anywhere to go, so they come to us. and in these documents you had revelation ares about -- revelations about gain of function research that wasas approached to -- darpa was approached by cohealth alliance to do research on bat-borne coronaviruses, and it was rejected because it was ooh dangerous according to the -- it was too dangerous according to the department of defense. documents also say anthony fauci was approached and approved it under his leadership at niaid. that woulder mean anthony paw ci lied under -- anthony fauci lied under everett. and this was authored by a marine corps major at the department of defense. he was not the source, but he did author them. and he actually issued a statement to me when i -- when
2:28 pm
we approached him for comment. listen to what marine corps major who wrote these documents -- again, not the source of the information -- listen to what he said to us. >> jamesd o'keefe asked person, you know, would you like to make a comment about this video, and here is what this marine said. >> i offered no comments on the investigation or internal ma careen corps deliberations. -- marine corpse deliberations. to those seeking answers, i offer encouragement. there ared good people striving for the truth working together in and out of government, and they succeed. to those that withhold, i pray for you. find the moral courage to come forward. don't let a lie be our legacy to positiverty. people a will -- posterity. people will forgive. semper fi. >> really powerful. and what's interesting about his statement, i found, was that there are good people, this is his words, there are good people
2:29 pm
striving for the truth working in government. so, in other words, and i've seen this. there are good people at these places. they're not necessarily all good institutions, but i would even say vast majority of them are good people that are just following the orders. and what we must do is appeal to their consciences so that they can do the right thing. if we don't do that, there's no hope for the country. it's the only option. which is the mission. so i think you're going to see -- hint-hint -- more people in the government coming forward with this information. and we have to have those people's backs. we have to defend them when they come forward. [applause] okay. so now, youso know, i know that mr. row again -- roguen is having some issues these days. i gave this advice, rogen, double down, double down.
2:30 pm
[laughter] stop apologizing. don't apologize. this is nothing to apologize for. i saw this morning rumble offeredof rogen $100 million too to rumble from spotify. i think mr. row began should >> okay, it's not me are you saying the documents are fake? saying the documents are fake? ? they nerve show you any evidence
2:31 pm
that trump tax return story that was w the new york times bomb year york times bomb they didn't show you any video or documents. they can you to trust them. we have no reason to trust them. weso have no reason to trust the media. that says joe rogan. >> the boogy man. >> he'sg exposing democracy. he's exposing real live corruption.ns he's exposing real life conspiracy. even if what he's saying is aho threat somehow or another decided the individual can be, like it's a cure to the
2:32 pm
reality. >> they will continue to attack us until they stopp attacking us or continue to question our credibility the results speak forci themselves even dr. fauc, even this man -- this guy was in the senate after theen documents came out and confirmed the authenticityty of the documents and mentioned us by name. >> what came out last night on project very tos. we have to keep exposing what's going on inside. you ask me how we do that. i give you a road map.
2:33 pm
the book talks about it. getting people inside to come public. that's a hard thing to do. it requires sacrifice, main, requires perseverance, also the first chapter is called' suffering. you might wonder why you wrote a chapter about that. i'm glad you asked. three months ago the fbi came to my house. this is the second time in my life the fbi put me in handcuffs. i em -- i'm not a gangster. this happened in 2010 in new orleans. i wrote another book about that and i was innocent. i was falsely accused. incarcerated and put-on probation. i gott a misdemeanor for the
2:34 pm
incident in new orleans. last year, the year before. we were approached by joe biden's daughter's diary. a woman m named ashley' someone. i didn'tt want to publish b something and blow up the project verita. we tried to give the diary to ashley biden, her lawyer. we gave it to law enforcement in florida. a year later, two fbi agents
2:35 pm
swept n the house we won't be intimidate o and we will keep or job. the i southern district of new york. the federal court in southern new york state where i live was behind this. i the goalma is to intimidate u. maybe the t goal is to get acces to ourur phone. on saturday, november 5th, november 6th, i hear a knocking on my door at 6:00 a.m. hi, the fbi. they are banging on my door, open up, fbi. i run to the door and open the door. door. flashlights in my faces. when that h happened, i was takn back to my last encounter with the s feds ten years ago. i'm like oh, here we go again. they put me in handcuffs. this was three, four months ago
2:36 pm
november 6th. they throw me on the wall of my apartmentne building. it's an hour north of new york city.uf they put me in handcuffs and on my coach and they showed me a searchra warrant signed by a magistrate judge. as a reporter i have a rite to receive documents from anybody as long as i didn't participate in thehe obtaining of them. that's american as apple pie. they have protected the right of journalist to receive documents. some say it was stolen but i didn't know if it was. i didn't publish it. it's running through my head as i sit there. they have war resistants signed by a judge. why did the judge sign that warrant, i t don't know.
2:37 pm
they left the home. it wasly certainly scary. maybe this is why people don't do what i do. you fear this happening to you if you do what i do. isn'tth that the point? isn't that their goal? really, this is about fear, isn't it. you can't solve w the problems u wantnt to solve which is your fr not my fear. i have been born again. i'm afraid of little. i see my country men are so afraid we will all die one day. won't you end up like julian, i don't know how to answer that. will i end up in solitary, i don't know. we will all die. is that's the only certainty
2:38 pm
death and taxes that's how people say how do you get any rest. that's how i sleep at night. i follow my conscious. on that day i was in danger federal agents are pounding on your door with a ram you are in danger. it was a gross violation of my constitutional rights, your constitutional rights. the first amendment makes all of our otherd rights popular. if they t do this to journalist you are crewed. so, i'd just like to play a few clips talking about that.
2:39 pm
>> two peoplent connected to projectye verita. they are a news organize, areey they not? >> they are and should be treated as such. >> project verita did the right thing. they couldn't verify the authenticity of the document. what'sis bewildering is why the feds are involved. assume it's' a theft or burglary. it's not a federal crime. >> tucker had something to say about it. since when does the fbi respond to domestic burglaries.n do you call the doj next time you areor in trouble. oh, this is not the president's drug addicted kid. >> of course, i'm sitting in my apparent holding theut search warrant an minutes later guess who i get a text message from. the new york times that knows
2:40 pm
all of the details. they say theow neighbors. they wouldn't know the subject ofei a grand jury subpoena or wt listed on the search warrant. mike schmitt knows about these things. i am still sitting in a state of shock our media is working in concert with our fbi? how is that left wing? what i' liberal about this. it's iller liberal. people say your right wing. inph a world where pharmaceutical companies and fbi are working together. it's t not liberal. it's t not liberal.
2:41 pm
my head is same institution they have britain 12 hit pieces about me. one reporter, a different reporter ben schmitt, a brave reporter tweeted out i don't think they should talk about the raid on james o 'keefe. we had others talk about us. until they release evidence that verita was involved in the theft because wen weren't. if not v the fbi raids are a violation of the privacy protection act.
2:42 pm
'keefe is not a journalist. image this is a liberal organize under donald trump. he never raided a home before like biden's department of justicee did. we had others come to our defense. politico fbi raid on verita home sparks questions about press freedom. the washington post with the unintentionallydi batman slogan democracy dies in darkness. jeff bezos click bate. they defended us. the justice department overreached. the reporters committee writing letters. why did you do this. there was hope, it seemed to me for the briefest poments in time
2:43 pm
the left and right came together. there was some agreement and consensus you just don't do this in the united states of america. the politics of fear will not provail in t -- prevailn in the united states of america. theree are principals so fundamental. that's what we do a project verita. i don't know what they do at the new york times except stocking projecter verita. they were trying to dox our we had adam goldman sitting outside of people homes trying to dox our sources. you are cnn and new york times. some of the other employees. andrea michele is on this reporter committee. we aredn writing to this judging you shouldn't do this to project verita.
2:44 pm
prettyou extraordinary. people on the floor railing on against the raids. >> the houseed has become darked with corruptioned justice. imageai a predawn raid waking fm a dead sleep and terror, screaming and searching for damning evidence. this is not pulled from the pages of a graphic novel. is i it y scary? yeah, it east scary. oh,ft another thing was we had senators writete letters to the department of justice. talking about the cases. a few days from now. verita, myself, and attorneys will s meet with 50 chiefs of staffs on h how to hold the department of justice accountable, that was just this we'll meet in washington with a number of these
2:45 pm
senators. who authorized the raid. was it the attorney general or president? they forbid the execution of searchea warrants against journalist for obvious reasons. so,th i'm getting towards my conclusion of the speech. speaking of the new york times we have sued. for defamation and scored a huge victory against the new york times. nothing happens to these you look at f an oral that does this. they work hard toig chapel i dot
