Project Veritas is a not-for-profit national journalism organization dedicated to undercover reporting to expose corruption, fraud, waste, and abuse. Whistleblowers are welcome to share what they know.
James O’Keefe founded both Project Veritas and Project Veritas Action, whose mission is “investigating corruption, dishonesty, waste and fraud in both public and private institutions.” Veritas is the Latin word for Truth.
Project Veritas inquiries have resulted in new laws, investigations at the state and federal levels, congressional inquiries, resignations, re-training, firings, and disciplinary action.
On September 14, 2018, O’Keefe tweeted:
“We will unmask and show you the faces of representative members of the Deep State. Government exists with the consent of the governed and that consent cannot be manufactured by the masked and subversive, it must be informed.”
On September 18, Project Veritas revealed that a State Department employee named Stuart Karaffa had boasted about working against the Trump administration from within it. A hidden camera caught every word.
Karaffa is a Management and Program Analyst with the Bureau of Overseas Buildings Operations. He is also a proud member of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) which calls itself the largest socialist organization in the U.S.
A letter dated September 18 to the U.S. Department of State, Office of the Inspector General, from Project Veritas attorney Benjamin Barr said that “DSA members in the Washington, DC area are employed by the federal government and that the organization is taking organized action to thwart administration policies.”
Certainly, everyone is entitled to their hobbies, but Karaffa “used government resources to promote DSA projects during government work hours.” Other DSA federal employees have been preparing press releases which promote their anti-Trump causes while collecting a salary and benefits from the same government. In other words, these traitors are biting the hand that feeds them.
DSA activists like Karaffa work in secret ways that avoid detection. According to Barr, “this resistance effort could have serious implications for the ability of the federal government to function.”
Among civil servant Karaffa’s notable quotes we find these shockers, all delivered while he laughed, completely without remorse:
“Resist everything. Every level. F*ck sh*t up.”
“I have nothing to lose. It’s impossible to fire federal employees.”
Evidently, Karaffa had time on his hands at work after “the administration cut my program that I was on,” which he described as a “cool” data analytic project.
Big-mouthed Karaffa had evidently already hoisted a pint or two of beer before he gushed about how he performed DSA political campaign work at the State Department – on the taxpayer’s dime. He would draft correspondences during working hours and send them at 5:31pm – one minute after his work shift ended:
“I do, and I’m careful about it. I don’t leave a paper trail…I leave emails.”
Apparently, young Karaffa never heard about the NSA data collection program that accumulates every single message every single American sends and receives online. There is no cyber-anonymity for him. He is not special nor above the law.
Karaffa defended his actions ridiculously:
“What is public record in this world? … Maybe some day I’ll go to board of elections jail, probably not.”
Conducting partisan political activity while working for the federal government is a violation of the Hatch Act. American tax dollars are not supposed to subsidize any party to stump.
Karaffa believed his supervisory had no idea he was defrauding taxpayers and undermining the Trump administration. In fact, according to him, “Nobody knows.”
As for the annual financial disclosure report all federal contractors must provide, showing officerships and board memberships in other organizations – like DSA – Karaffa said:
“The best part about it is there’s this ethics form that I have to submit every year for the government because I’m…a contracting person. And on my contracting form I put all of my officer positions on it and somebody just rubber stamps it and it goes forward.”
As soon as other DSA members became aware that Karaffa’s big mouth had gotten him in a world of trouble, they began posting warnings to their comrades like this:
“If you work for the Federal Government, please take the time to lock down all social media accounts and activate two factor authorization on all important accounts.”
Karaffa said he wasn’t acting alone and subsequent Project Veritas probing has revealed another taxpayer-funded DSA subversive.
On September 19, Project Veritas published another video of Allison Hrabar, a paralegal who works for the Justice Department. Hrabar is also a DSA member. She was ” involved in driving DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielson from a DC restaurant in July, discussing the use of DoJ resources to obstruct Trump administration policies.”
Hrabar used her research skills and federal databases to find out home addresses of socialist political opponents – members of the Trump administration and others with rightward leanings. She said her co-conspirators “talk at work about, like, we can resist from the inside.”
A third saboteur to the Trump administration uncovered by Project Veritas is Natarajan Subramanian, an auditor for the U.S. General Accounting Office (GAO). He, too, is an outspoken (and rather stupid, if we may say) DSA operative.
Subramanian disclosed how the resistance works within the federal government by its own subversive employees:
“If you’re in [an] executive branch agency you can slow ball things to a degree, that it’s like ineffective, and maybe you get in trouble, or maybe you get fired or resign or whatever, but you slowed [Trump’s agenda] down for a certain period of time.”
The federal auditor understands right from wrong and knows his actions are criminal:
“Everything that I’m doing with DSA is stuff that I’m not supposed to be doing for work…it’s explicitly prohibited. If they find out I could get in trouble, basically.”
In the same video, the shameless traitor admitted:
“I would get fired if they knew that I was [performing DSA tasks at work], and I do. I do it on my phone…I break rules every day, at any point I can get fired for what I do with DSA.”
The glib Subramanian gushed about how he and his cronies have seeded socialism and communist doctrine within the federal rank and file:
“We have a bunch of just communists, like no prefix, and that’s basically me. We [also] have some folks who are Trotskyists or Leninists.”
Thanks to Project Veritas, the General Accounting Office (GAO) Managing Director of Public Affairs announced on September 20 that Subramanian has been “removed from any ongoing GAO work and cut off from access to GAO equipment.”
We shudder to think what would have happened if Jailery Clinton had been elected to the White House in 2016. None of these left-wing activists would ever have come to light – and if they had, no federal action would hold them accountable.
Another disturbing fact is that these three DSA members are all young and incredibly naive about their power and the consequences of their actions. Are these the kind of ignorant, immature people we want running the country?
As things stand today, DSA members are being ferreted out and we can expect their removal from the high offices they scorn and take for granted. The good news is that draining the swamp of these gnawing rats frees up salaried positions for other, better-suited candidates.
