Project Veritas Wins Defamation Lawsuit

Project Veritas’ journalism has been vindicated yet again after a federal judge in Florida sided with the organization in a lawsuit in which a Wichita teacher’s union representative claimed they deceptively edited an undercover video to slander him.

“The federal courts once again vindicated Project Veritas and our methods,” said Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe. “Today a federal judge in Florida ruled totally in our favor in a case brought by a man named Steve Wentz.”

Wentz, president of the Wichita Teachers’ Union, a powerful political power in Kansas, was recorded by a Project Veritas journalist claiming he would intimidate troublesome students with threats of violence in his classroom.

“You really think I’m a motherf*cker?” Said Wentz in the undercover video, “Son go for it and I’ll give you the first shot.”

The Project Veritas journalist incredulously asked Wentz whether he has done this to a student.

Wentz nonchalantly replied, “I’ve done this more than once, and I said ‘I guarantee you, I will kick your f*cking ass.”

O’Keefe explained that in June of 2017, Wentz filed a lawsuit against Project Veritas, claiming the video was edited and posted to defame his character.

In a 2017 Wichita Eagle article, Wentz told the newspaper that “It’s a lie, and it is something that needs to be addressed.”

Wentz continued, saying “When you have people like this that take your words and twist them and edit videos and accuse you of onerous things,” then “this type of vitriol needs to be addressed.”

He added, “This is not journalism.”

O’Keefe quoted Wentz and said, “Today the judge in Florida addressed it, throwing Wentz’s case in a garbage can.”

He quoted the judge as saying “Wentz is unable to sufficiently identify a false statement published by defendants that plausibly supports his defamation claims,” adding that “The edits do not improperly and illegally alter the meaning of Wentz’s words.”

O’Keefe went on, quoting from the judge, “Defendants did not commit defamatory acts against Wentz and did not illegally record conversations,” so “the Court will grant summary judgement in favor of Project Veritas and O’Keefe.”

The Project Veritas founder noted that it would have been cheaper to settle out of court than to spend over $400,000 fighting Wentz’s lawsuit, but said it was never an option for the organization.

“We fight, we fight for the First Amendment, and for the truth, because principles matter,” said O’Keefe. “I can assure you right here, right now, we will never surrender our principles, we will never settle out of court, so help me God.”

‘WHAT A DISASTER:’ Iowa Caucus Results Delayed in Vote Count Catastrophe

The nation is left with more questions than answers on the night of the Iowa Caucus.

Published

on

The Iowa Caucus was intended to kick off the Democratic Presidential primary by highlighting candidates with a credible shot of winning the nomination.

Instead, the first-in-the nation caucus seems to be more representative of the Democratic Party’s incompetence, after results for the caucus are delayed for an unforeseen “quality assurance” tabulation process. The development has many election hawks and Democrats howling mad, with many suspecting the DNC is dipping into its bag of old tricks with the hopes of blunting or preventing a Bernie Sanders victory in the caucus.

There are many reports of caucus precinct coordinators being totally ignored when trying to report the results of their local caucuses to the Iowa Democratic Party. At least one caucus organizer was outright hung up on by the party when he called in to report results- while speaking to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer live on air.

The mass of confusion is being traced to the failure of an app designed to report results. Iowa Democrats simply explained the unusual delay as the result of “inconsistencies,” offering little to no in depth explanation for what seems to be third world election practices.

Although we’re inexplicably left without any vote tallies the night of the election, exit polls and crowd sizes suggest that polling frontrunner Sanders has a strong chance to win. Pete Buttigieg also appears set for a strong second place performance. Sanders expressed confidence in a strong performance when addressing his supporters in the state.

Former Vice President Joe Biden appears slated for an embarrassment, outright failing to advance to the “viable” stage in many precinct and regional caucus. It’s not entirely impossible that Biden finishes fourth in the primary, a surprise development that would leave the candidate many assumed to be an easy frontrunner for the Democratic nomination struggling as he lags to New Hampshire and later primary states.

MSNBC talking heads could be overheard referring to the caucus as a “disaster” in a some capacity in leaked audio.

As of late Monday night, the Iowa Democratic Party is yet to report any vote results, let alone declare a winner. Big League Politics is continuing to monitor the situation.
