James O’Keefe may be ready to quit Project Veritas, but apparently the Veritas board isn’t ready to say bye-bye to their founder, James O’Keefe.
The Project Veritas Board of Directors responded to O’Keefe’s Monday departure from the ground-breaking journalism organization saying it “wants to work things out with James” while accusing him of misusing donor funds with his “excessive” spending.
First he was out, now he’s being offered another chance?
The actions and timing from the Board are bizarre.
Last week, Project Veritas just broke it’s biggest story ever, catching a Pfizer executive on hidden camera talking about mutating the Covid virus so that injected people will continue infected one another, thus creating the need for more and more “vaccines.” The Pfizer exec is actually heard on tape saying, “Don’t tell anyone. Promise you won’t tell anyone. The way it [the experiment] would work is that we put the virus in monkeys, and we successively cause them to keep infecting each other, and we collect serial samples from them.”
The hidden camera video garnered 50-million views on Youtube. A record for Veritas. It was their biggest story ever.
So why fire the founder–especially now?
Well, according to the Washington Times, the Board insists they never fired him, but rather suspended him indefinitely from his role as CEO over growing concerns about his treatment of staff and “financial malfeasance that has been discovered, which requires us to act in order to remain in compliance with the law.”
The “financial malfeasance” included $14,000 for a personal charter flight ; $150,000 for private “Black Cars,” and $60,000 for dance events for the staff, as well as “Thousands of dollars spent on a DJ and other equipment for personal use” and “Hundreds of other acts of personal inurement.”
O’Keefe talked extensively about all of this in a 45-minute speech before his staff on Monday. Unless he’s lying, it sure sounded like he was fired, and over some trivial matters.
Again, not only did Project Veritas just break the biggest story in the history of multi-media undercover journalism, but O’Keefe’s non-stop fundraising brought the organization $22-million last year, nearly double from the year prior. It seems to me if the allegations have merit, a strong, private conversation between the Board and O’Keefe could have easily put a halt to such spending.
Without O’Keefe, Project Veritas is toast, and the Board knows it. And maybe this is the Board’s goal? Close Veritas down.
My speculation is either extreme external pressure (i.e. threats of some sort) was placed on members of the Board to remove O’Keefe, or the Board was infiltrated by traitors. The radical left (particularly the abortion industry, and now Big Pharma) hates the work Project Veritas has accomplished.
We live in a day where truth seems to be rapidly losing its value, and those who stand for truth subject to ridicule and even government sponsored persecution.
