A socialist bureaucrat in the State Department has been caught on tape by Project Veritas saying he is part of the deep state resistance against President Donald Trump. As a part of the “anti-Trump resistance,” the bureaucrat says it’s his job is to “resist everything” at “every level.”

James O’Keefe of Project Veritas released the video of the deep state operative on Tuesday as a part of what he promised to be wide exposure of the Deep State, which is actively working to defeat President Trump from within via media leaks and policy sabotage. The video features a State Department employee, Stuart Karaffa, engaged in radical socialist political activity on the taxpayer’s dime while advocating for resistance to official government policies. In addition to being a State Department employee, Stuart Karaffa is also a ranking member of the Metro DC Democratic Socialists of America, according to an in-depth report by Project Veritas. 

Karaffa says on camera he wants to “f##k sh#t up.” He also told an undercover Project Veritas journalist that he performs DSA (socialist propaganda) activism while at work for the State Department.

The mainstream media continues to tell the public that there is no such thing as the deep state, rather it is nothing more than a deeply held conspiracy theory.  Yet there is a lot of evidence, this video included, which proves there are unelected bureaucrats behind the scenes trying to advance a totalitarian socialist agenda while sucking up taxpayer funds.




Karaffa explained that he actually drafts DSA communications while on the job at State Department:

“… I’m careful about it. I don’t leave a paper trail, like I leave emails, and like any press s**t that comes up I leave that until after 5:30. But as soon as 5:31 hits, got my like draft messages ready to send out.”

“I have nothing to lose. It’s impossible to fire federal employees,” Karaffa says, as he talks about creating socialist political propaganda work at his cubicle.

“You could put two and two together probably. With like web traffic…. So with web traffic, I mean I could make the case before a court of law that- I’m going to the Virginia sort of, campaign finance website- that I’m just interested in what people are doing politically. But if they also go and look at like DSA minutes and like Officer positions they’ll be like, ‘that’s weird, you were the co-chair of the electoral caucus, and you spent three hours on a Virginia campaign finance website.’” -Karaffa, deep state operative in an undercover video by Project Veritas

O’Keefe promised one thing: that there will be more of these undercover videos in which he and his team of journalists unmask the deep state.

President Donald Trump ordered the feds to declassify documents relating the Russian election meddling investigation yesterday. Among the documents to be declassified are all of the text messages between disgraced FBI figures Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.

The documents to be declassified include all FBI reports on interviews with Justice Department official Bruce Ohr and all FBI reports of interviews prepared in connection with all other applications to surveil Carter Page. Trump also asked that other important documents be declassified as well, including 21 pages worth of an application for a renewed surveillance warrant against former campaign aide Carter Page, according to Fox News.  The 21 pages Trump wants to be declassified only make up a small part of the 412 pages of FISA applications and warrants related to Page released by the FBI earlier this year in heavily redacted format. The June 2017 application was the last of four filed by the Justice Department in support of FISA court orders allowing the monitoring of Page for nearly a year.

According to the redacted version as reported by Fox News, three of the declassified pages contain information included in a section titled “The Russian Government’s Coordinated Efforts to Influence the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election.” That section includes reference to the potential coordination between people associated with Trump’s campaign and the alleged Russian election interference effort.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said President Trump had ordered the documents released by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) and the Justice Department “[a]t the request of a number of committees of Congress, and for reasons of transparency.”





The text messages are to be released “without redaction,” and those include messages from Ohr, Strzok, Lisa Page, former FBI Director James Comey, and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

Carter Page told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Monday night that the FBI’s investigation was “so incredibly stupid to begin with.” He added, “My biggest concern is all the damage that this did to the U.S. government [and] the mockery it made out of the Constitution and all of the wrongdoing that was done by various officials within the Department of Justice, the FBI and the DNC [Democratic National Committee].”

It is so far unknown when these documents will be declassified in an unredacted version, but it is safe to say that Democrats are probably panicking right about now.  Fox News further reported that a source familiar with the timing of the declassification told the media outlet that they expected the Carter Page warrant application to be declassified first, followed by the FBI reports on agent interviews with Ohr. A Justice Department spokesperson told Fox News that the DOJ and FBI “are already working with the Director of National Intelligence to comply with the President’s order.”

In his new book titled  “The Deep State: How an army of bureaucrats protected Barack Obama and is working to destroy Donald Trump,” Jason Chaffetz alleges that the deep state is very real.  His book, which is set to be published on September 18, details the lengths the intelligence community is going to in an attempt to undermine Trump.

“The Deep State is real,” Chaffetz wrote, according to the Salt Lake Tribune. “They don’t like exposure, accountability or responsibility. They fight back, outlast and work the system for their advantage. And they certainly don’t like disruptive forces such as Donald Trump.”

Chaffetz, a former congressman from Utah, resigned from Congress in June 2017. At the time, that was about six months into Trump’s presidency. Chaffetz then decided to take a job as a political analyst for the FOX News Channel and the FOX Business Network, according to USA Today. 

James Comey Says Deep State Doesn’t Exist, Then Describes The Deep State’s Existence

Chaffetz says that the devastating Benghazi incident is what uncovered a larger problem in the corrupt government. “Without exposing Benghazi we might never have learned that Hillary Clinton was using her private email server to conduct government business and transmit classified information,” Chaffetz wrote. “Benghazi was a symptom of a much deeper problem at the State Department. Their decisions were based not on a security calculation, but on a political one.” Chaffetz also tosses the Department of Justice firmly under the bus in his book as well. The DOJ is a frequent target of both Trump and the House Freedom Caucus. “The DOJ should be protecting us,” Chaffetz wrote. “And yet it is the federal agency that stands head and shoulders above the rest in enabling the Swamp.”




The leftists both in political positions and amongst the public see Chaffetz as going after Obama while allowing Trump to run free. “Despite issuing a steady stream of far-reaching subpoenas during the Obama Administration, the Oversight Committee has essentially gone dormant under the Trump Administration, and Chairman Chaffetz’s successor has not issued a single subpoena to anyone, on any issue, ever,” Elijah Cummings, a Democrat from Maryland and the top Democrat on the  House oversight panel said.

It’s no secret that Obama’s CIA director, John Brennan, is no fan of POTUS Donald Trump, as he has made clear on Twitter and on cable news programs regularly.

It’s also no secret to people who have taken the time to research Brennan that in the 1970s, as the Cold War with Russia was in full swing, Brennan actually voted for an American Communist Party candidate for president– something that should have negated his ever becoming a staffer back in 1980, much less head of the country’s most powerful spy agency.

The president finally did justice and the American people a favor when he recently revoked Brennan’s security clearance. But according to a bombshell report, that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

As noted by Teaparty.org, some believe that Brennan has been actively plotting against the United States for years, even allegedly playing a pivotal role in allowing the 9/11 hijackers inside the country:

Obama, Clinton, Kerry, Jarrett…far too many people in the previous administration had highly troubling ties to the terrorist state of Iran and in Obama’s case, there is quite a bit of evidence pointing to the fact that he was a Muslim, a fact which remained in question throughout the entirety of his presidency and he did little to dispel by always referring to the Koran as “The Holy Koran” and the Bible simply as “the Bible.”




Obama points to his decades-long association with a Christian church in Chicago, where he lived and served as a state, then U.S., senator before becoming president. But the pastor of that church was Jeremiah Wright, whose fiery sermons can best be summed up as anti-white and anti-Republican, to say the least, and who was regularly critical of America in general.

There is even some speculation that Brennan may have converted to Islam at some point.

But there’s more. According to Freedom Outpost, Brennan was the CIA station chief in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, when the 9/11 hijackers were given visas to travel to the United States. There are even reports he gave the final approval for those visas.

In September 2014, a whistleblower named Greg Ford, a former military intelligence officer, told Ground Zero Radio’s Clyde Lewis that Brennan actually overrode CIA objections to the approval of those visas.

Brennan the key?

Ford said on the show: “All 19 high jackers? Where did they get their visas stamped before they came to this country to launch 9/11? They got their visas stamped in the CIA station in Jeddah. And the second in command said, ‘No way, absolutely we are not going to stamp those visas.’ And the fellow who was in charge, his name was John Brennan. He was the person who overrode those concerns and cautions and ordered those visas stamped in Jeddah.”

Bombshell.

Freedom Outpost noted further that Michael Springman was, at the time, head of the American visa bureau in Saudi Arabia, a post he held during the Reagan and Bush administrations, from September 1987 through March 1989. He said during his time there he was ordered by higher State Department officials to hand out visas to applicants who were not qualified. He said the applications were for recruits of Osama bin Laden, who was fighting against the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan, and who was sending recruits to the U.S. for training by the CIA.

Springman made his incredible claims during an appearance at the National Press Club on June 10, 2002.

The National Review subsequently reported that none of the 9/11 hijacker visas were completed in the proper manner, turning the U.S. government into “a travel agency for terrorists.”

The magazine, citing an August 2004 report[.pdf] from the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States, said the visa applications for the 19 hijackers were replete with data fields left blank and questions that were not fully answered, and yet U.S. officials approved 22 of 23 visa applications for the hijackers.

Of the 15 Saudi terrorists, four of them received visas through the Visa Express Program in June 2001.

“If it weren’t for John Brennan, 9/11 may never have happened,” Freedom Outpost concluded.

The founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, has been asked to testify before the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee as part of their Russia investigation, according to a letter signed by Senators Richard Burr (R-NC) and Mark Warner (D-VA) posted by the WikiLeaks Twitter account.

The letter was delivered to Assange at the Ecuadorian embassy in London.

“As part of the inquiry, the Committee requests that you make yourself available for a closed interview with bipartisan Committee staff at a mutually agreeable time and location,” the letter reads.

WikiLeaks says their legal team is “considering the offer but testimony must conform to a high ethical standard,” after which the whistleblower organization added a tweet linking to a list of 10 Democratic senators who demanded in late June that Assange’s asylum be revoked in violation of international law.

Recently, Activist Post reported that “The War Is On To Stop The Extradition Of Julian Assange” and that Ecuador and Britain are in high-level discussions over Assange’s situation, according to a report by the Sunday Times of London.

Assange has been arbitrarily detained according to the UN for nearly 6 years in the Ecuadorian embassy. Now Ecuador has expanded that arbitrary detainment to solitary confinement by forbidding Assange from any human contact including visitations, phone calls and barring his Internet usage — all without Assange ever being convicted of a crime besides publishing documents exposing corruption and shedding light on the truth.

In March, Ecuador and its leader Lenín Moreno pulled the plug on Julian Assange’s Internet connection. Then, Ecuador further demanded Assange remove a specific tweet referencing a foreign political prisoner Carles Puigdemont. The irony here is that Ecuador accused Assange of “interfering in a state” for mentioning another political prisoner and Assange himself had more of his own rights taken away.

“In 1940 the elected president of Catalonia, Lluís Companys, was captured by the Gestapo, at the request of Spain, delivered to them and executed. Today, German police have arrested the elected president of Catalonia, Carles Puigdemont, at the request of Spain, to be extradited,” Assange tweeted.

Ecuador has clarified its position on Julian Assange’s asylum by drafting new rules limiting his communications according to WikiLeaks.

Last year, Moreno vowed to stop Assange from revealing further corruption about the United States for the duration of his stay at the embassy, stating he would “gag Assange from revealing further corruption about the U.S.”

Although Moreno claims to support Assange’s asylum, he previously said that he would ask him to “be very delicate when he addresses international politics, especially regarding countries with which we have good relations,” reported Latin American news outlet teleSUR.

It’s interesting to note the former Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa, who gave Assange asylum is now being threatened with extradition from his current country in Belgium for an unrelated matter dealing with the alleged brief kidnapping of opposition lawmaker Fernando Balda in 2012.

Meanwhile, it’s been reported that the UK’s Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt dared Assange to walk out of the Ecuadorean embassy. He might have said a little too much about an active investigation when he said that Assange was facing “serious charges,” because the article is now absent from News.com.au’s website.

In May, Swedish prosecutors decided to discontinue their investigation into the claims, which Assange denies and he has never been formally charged with.

“Chief Prosecutor Marianne Ny has today decided to discontinue the preliminary investigation regarding suspected rape concerning Julian Assange,” the prosecutor’s office said in a statement, as quoted by Reuters.

Charges against Assange in Sweden have been dropped and he is facing only a minor charge in the UK for failing to turn up to a court hearing.

So it is unknown what “serious charges” Hunt was referring to. And this may be why the article was just taken down without notice now displaying a 404 error. It’s worth noting this is exactly what happened when Tommy Robinson stories were demanded to be deleted.

The media is ignoring Assange’s plight with very few articles being circulated about Assange’s situation in the MSM. So much so, that recently Emmy Award-winning filmmaker and investigative reporter John Pilger attacked press coverage of Julian Assange in an interview with Dennis Bernstein and Randy Credico with Consortium News.

We are all Julian Assange … especially journalists, U.S. President Donald Trump has set the atmosphere for the push against fake news and licensing journalists. I guess it’s only ironic that Trump’s administration goes after an organization with a perfect record for revealing the truth.

The precedent that this can set for other journalists and bloggers in the U.S. and abroad is monstrous, and a nightmarish thought. If Assange is extradited to the United States, that’s the subsequent death of Freedom of the Press as well-known human rights lawyer Geoffrey Robertson QC has previously said.

Events are in the process of being planned worldwide that if something happens to Assange people all over the world are prepared to mobilize and protest in response. That information will be made available if and when the time comes.

This reporter is in a #Unity4J server helping organize the protest efforts both online and off. You can join #Unity4J and help defend Assange’s human rights and publisher rights (here.)

If the UK decides to illegally hand over Julian Assange to the U.S. in violation of two UN rulings, then it’s inevitable that we see a rain of leaks that the world has never seen. That will undoubtedly rock society as WikiLeaks has consistently for 11 years.

There are dozens of insurance files that can seemingly become public with just key phrases. Although, this reporter suspects that WikiLeaks will play a game of chess.

For up-to-date accurate information on Julian Assange’s plight, see @Wikileaks@AssangeMrs, and @Unity4J Twitter accounts. The website Unity4J will be up to date with information, live streams, and places where protests will be held in support of Julian Assange.

Assange has recommended that WikiLeaks supporters use cryptocurrency to donate to the organization in order to circumvent the blockade.
