Since President Donald Trump managed to defeat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Presidential campaign season, it seems like people at certain levels of the federal government have actively ‘resisted’ his agenda, undermining or stifling it at every turn. This unelected ‘deep state’ has operated contrary to the will of the people, but many have questioned their existence.
Today, Project Veritas, James O’Keefe’s running project, exposed part one of the deep state bust. In fact, he provided evidence that there are federal employees openly flaunting their desire and ability to ‘resist’ the will of the citizens. In the undercover video, a member of the ‘deep state’ even boasted about how he worked to “resist everything, f*ck sh*t up,” and how “it’s impossible to fire federal employees” even if they’re acting improperly.
American tax dollars at work, supporting hard-left politics in government.
This video, the first in the undercover investigation that O’Keefe and company are planning to carry out, showcased an employee of the federal government bragging about his resistance, doing political work on the government dime, and admitting that it’s unlikely he will be held accountable for it, especially since his political affiliations are rubber stamped.
The employee interviewed, Stuart Karaffa, admitted that he has both engaged in radical socialist political activities when he was working (and being paid on the taxpayer’s dime), and that he has advocated for resistance to official government policies.
In the video, it seemed clear that Karaffa’s main loyalties didn’t lie with his employer, or with the United States government, or even with the Department of State.
Rather, they were with the Democratic Socialists of America, an extreme left-wing political party he is a member of.
He openly bragged to the undercover employee who was talking to (and videotaping) him that he had, during work hours, performed work for the DSA, where he is a high-ranking member in the local ‘Metro DC DSA’ political organization.
He told the undercover individual that he sends out ‘draft messages’ for the political party, and that he did (and continues to do) so after 5:31 p.m., while still at the office.
He also admitted that he spent his time in the office watching political affairs in Virginia, which he utilized as co-chair of the DSA electoral caucus in DC.
His talk certainly made it appear that he knew he was doing something wrong, possibly even illegal, though he didn’t seem very concerned about the consequences of his actions.
He said that maybe someday he would end up going to jail at the behest of the board of elections, or maybe not.
Karaffa didn’t believe that anyone at his work was aware of what he was doing, nor did he seem concerned about facing censure or penalties at work.
The socialist outright declared that there was nothing for him to fear, as it was “impossible to fire federal employees,” a complaint that taxpayers have voiced for decades.
He also said that he didn’t think anyone knew of his workday activism.
The leftist employee even said that although some government employees are forced to submit disclosure forms, in order to identify possible conflicts of interest, “somebody just rubber stamps” the form, and it goes forward.
Karaffa suggested that the Ethics Officer, the person in charge of ensuring that there is no conflict of interest and that employees carry out their duties in an unbiased manner, was “checked out.”
His political opinions also appeared to openly conflict with his ability to do his job, best exemplified by his statement “resist everything… every level. F*ck sh*t up.”
That was his overall attitude toward the official polices of Donald Trump, a man legally and legitimately nominated and elected by the people of the United States of America.
James O’Keefe, who operates Project Veritas, suggested that Stuart Karaffa is just the first person unearthed by his latest undercover operation, which intends to reveal the ‘deep state’ and a few of its members.
According to O’Keefe, these holdovers from the previous administration (like Karaffa) are nameless and faceless bureaucrats, “slowing things down or leaking secrets” in order to undermine the administration of President Donald J. Trump.
He also pointed out that these unelected employees don’t seem to be afraid that there will be any sort of retribution, nor are they hampered by scruples about abusing the system to impose their political will on the people.
It is very interesting that they are so bold and deliberate in their actions, almost as if they don’t believe for a single moment that they have anything to worry about, even though they are possibly breaking the law.
O’Keefe promised more to come. It will be interesting to see who else he can find, and what else he can record, in his quest to expose the deep state.
