Counter-Sting Catches James OKeefe Network Attempting To Sow Chaos At Trumps Inauguration

Counter-Sting Catches James O’Keefe Network Attempting To Sow Chaos At Trump’s Inauguration
The stinger gets stung.

WASHINGTON ― A left-wing political group released a new video Monday of a counter-sting that has uncovered evidence of right-wing activists trying to sow chaos at Donald Trump’s inaugural ceremony, an effort to portray critics of Trump who march against him as violent fringe figures.

The counter-sting, carried out by The Undercurrent and Americans Take Action, a project of a previous target of provocateur James O’Keefe, managed to surreptitiously record elements of O’Keefe’s network offering huge sums of money to progressive activists if they would disrupt the ceremony and “put a stop to the inauguration” and the related proceedings to such a degree that donors to the clandestine effort would “turn on a TV and maybe not even see Trump.” To have riots blot out coverage of Trump, the donor offered “unlimited resources,” including to shut down bridges into D.C.

The Undercurrent, led by executive producer Lauren Windsor, is sponsored by American Family Voices, which was among a constellation of groups infiltrated by O’Keefe’s Project Veritas during the presidential campaign, an effort to link Democrats with voter fraud.

1. I know who the

anonymous donor is. Who do you know that has experience with bridge closures and has motive. He was promised a position in trump's cabinet, then told to take a hike. hmmm. who could it be?

the donor offered “unlimited resources,” including to shut down bridges into D.C.

19. Welcome to DU, ProudLib72!

It's a rather compelling argument, isn't it! Hmmm, lemme see... somebody with experience getting bridges inconveniently closed...

11. Isn't it expected to be one of the smallest crowds in years?

I thought they said they were expecting about half of how many Obama drew.

But your concern is duly noted!

20. made up of supporters

of the most openly hostile and racist groups America has to offer. just saying, put them in close
proximity to the organic population of DC and watch out!

Be safe if you are going to be anywhere near the place!

15. I think "the population of DC" will be staying well away from the excitement, such as it is.

The major crowds will be there the next day for the Women's March.

12. It doesn't seem like anyone would have to be paid for that.




Not when so many are willing to do it for free.

14. Why isn't that little pissant in jail yet? His photo should be tacked on the wall of every single...

...progressive organization and charitable group in the USA, and every employee and volunteer should be given a copy when they are given their orientation to their job. O'Keefe is despicable.

17. Something like this is to be expected

We're going to some health-care rallies, and more, and I want to damn sure have a Gopro and a cell phone with good camera. That kind of stuff is standard for the classless, low-life types who are against us. They're already demonizing good folks in anticipation, looking for an opening.
