Project Veritas founder and conservative investigative reporter James O’Keefe has reported that he was recently denied a firearm because the FBI listed him as a “convicted felon” on their background registry.
O’Keefe posted a video on social media of himself at a New York gun store attempting to buy a shotgun before the federal background check under the NICS system rejected his request.
“I hope it’s not retaliating against me because of our journalism,” O’Keefe told the shopkeeper, who recognized O’Keefe from his work exposing liberal corruption and shook his hand.

Big League Politics has reported on how efforts to strengthen federal background checks are a liberal trojan horse to enact gun control and keep guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens:
Another controversial provision of the omnibus spending bill is funding for a proposal known as “Fix-NICS.” Instead of attempting to pass it on its own, which has failed on numerous occasions, it appears that Republicans in congress have plugged the bill, which has support from a number of high-profile Democrats, including Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) into the massive spending bill.
SEC. 601. of the omnibus spending bill is titled the “FIX NICS ACT,” and is the same bill that anti-gun Republicans and Democrats have failed to pass in the past.
Fix-NICS provides massive funding to states to encourage them to input more people into the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) to bar them from firearm ownership.
The NICS system has already been massively abused, disproportionately targeting veterans. Over 257,000 veterans have already been barred from firearm ownership without any due process, and this funding only gives them the ammo they need to throw even more veterans into the NICS database.
The deep state would certainly be incentivized to punish O’Keefe for his political advocacy. O’Keefe has been a leader in exposing their plot against President Donald Trump, including how the Russia-gate witch hunt was a total farce from the beginning.
O’Keefe caught CNN supervising producer John Bonifield on camera in 2017 admitting that there was no evidence of Trump ever engaging in Russian collusion or doing anything improper with regards to Russia.
“I mean, it’s mostly bullshit right now,” Bonifield said on the hidden camera video. “Like, we don’t have any giant proof.”
“Just to give you some context, President Trump pulled out of the climate accords and for a day and a half we covered the climate accords. And the CEO of CNN (Jeff Zucker) said in our internal meeting, he said good job everybody covering the climate accords, but we’re done with that, let’s get back to Russia,” he continued.
“I haven’t seen any good enough evidence to show that the President committed a crime,” Bonifield added. “I just feel like they don’t really have it but they want to keep digging. And so I think the President is probably right to say, like, look you are witch hunting me. You have no smoking gun, you have no real proof.”
The case of O’Keefe’s rejection shows why federal gun control must always be opposed. No matter how well-intentioned the measures may be, they will always be used by liberal bureaucrats to deprive their enemies of rights.
Is the FBI Preparing to Revoke 1st Amendment Protections for Trump Supporters?
Ripping off the mask.
After last week’s mostly peaceful protests at the Capitol, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) intends to browbeat and scrutinize Trump supporters as criminals, CNN has announced.
The rationale is that all Trump supporters are “extremists,” and if their constitutional rights are honored and protected, they might commit domestic terrorism, or something.
“Federal officials stressed on the call with state, local, tribal and college campus law enforcement leaders that the FBI will not tolerate extremists using the First Amendment as a guide to incite violence,” CNN reported.
Predictably, the Rooskies are being trotted out as a familiar scapegoat for the growing anger that is building against corrupt government officials in both parties.
“According to the source, federal officials said on the call that Russian actors have been amplifying the false narrative that members of Antifa infiltrated Trump supporters during the riot at the US Capitol, and the Chinese have seized on news stories showing chaos in the US,” CNN reported.
According to the article, the FBI, Department of Homeland Security and Office of the Director of National Intelligence are predicting that more violence is on the way.
“The violent breach of the US Capitol Building is very likely part of an ongoing trend in which (extremists) exploit lawful protests, rallies, and demonstrations, and other gatherings to carry out ideologically-motivated violence and criminal activity,” an intelligence brief from the deep state agencies stated.
Big League Politics has reported on the massive crackdown that has ensued since last week’s siege of the U.S. Capitol, which has put the entire political establishment on notice:
Meghan McCain, the venomously anti-Trump daughter of deceased Sen. John McCain, is calling for President Donald Trump’s supporters to be put into Guantanamo Bay.
McCain is calling for Trump supporters who participated in the infamous and historic Capitol siege in Washington D.C. last week to be detained in the facility typically used to hold foreign terrorists.
“I just think we need to treat domestic terrorists the way we do actual terrorists. I think we need to consider all possibilities. I’m not against sending these people to Gitmo. These are domestic terrorists who attacked our own Republic. They should be treated the same way we treat Al Qaeda,” she said during a discussion on ABC’s “The View.”
… McCain also endorsed impeaching President Trump or removing him with the 25th Amendment, thinking this incredible overreach would somehow prevent the likelihood of violence…
The events of last week have exposed who the RINOs are once and for all. The civil war within the Republican Party over the next election cycle will be epic.
The mask has been ripped off. Fair elections are no more, the Constitution is toilet paper, and the deep state will be treating patriotic Americans like ISIS.
