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.”

HUGE: Court Documents Reveal Shot Kenosha Rioter Joseph Rosenbaum Was a Convicted Child Rapist

Convicted pedophile Joseph Rosenbaum was killed in an altercation at the Kenosha riots.

Published

New court documents of the Pima County, Arizona circuit court reveal that Joseph Rosenbaum was convicted of various sex crimes against children in Arizona in 2002.

Rosenbaum was killed in an altercation while rioting in Kenosha, Wisconsin last week. He is seen on camera lunging at 17-year old Kyle Rittenhouse, who eventually shot him, claiming he acted in self defense when Rosenbaum attempted to take the AR-15 rifle he was carrying. Rittenhouse attempted to flee the scene, and was pursued by two other rioters, one armed with a gun. He tripped and fell, and when the other rioters assailed him, he shot them both. Rosenbaum and one other rioter were killed, and a third wounded. Rittenhouse has been charged with first-degree murder in the shootings.

Shortly after Rosenbaum was identified as one of the deceased individuals, it became public knowledge that he was on the Wisconsin sex offender registry, for crimes committed in Arizona.

The man who may very well have set off the violent altercation is a convicted pedophile, judging from the court documents that were published Wednesday. A presentence report reveals that Rosenbaum committed a range of sex crimes against several boys from the ages of nine to eleven years old, including outright rape.

More documents reveal the legal proceedings against Rosenbaum.

Rosenbaum would be convicted of two of the eleven total charges.

Some leftists had speculated that Rosenbaum was merely a victim of the criminal justice system upon the revelation that he was a convicted sex offender, claiming he had been merely been railroaded for sexual activity with his 17-year old girlfriend as an adult, or something of the like. The new documents disprove such an assertion, demonstrating that Rosenbaum was convicted for some of the most heinous child sex crimes known to society, including the outright rape of children.

Previous criminal records of parties involved in use-of-force incidences aren’t usually admissible in court cases, but Rittenhouse’s argument of self defense appears more credible when his word is placed against the conduct of a convicted pedophile.
