‘We’re Bankrupt’: Leaked Meeting
Reveals Project Veritas On Verge of Collapse

Original Article

Posted By: zephyrgirl, 9/11/2023 12:05:01 PM

In the months since James O’Keefe’s dramatic departure from Project Veritas earlier this year, the conservative group has spiraled out of control as it weathers mass layoffs and board member resignations under the leadership of Hannah Giles, who took the helm in June. Mediaite obtained audio from an August 22 meeting between Giles, Project Veritas board president Joe Barton, and several staffers. At the meeting, held just days after 23 staffers were fired and two resigned, Giles can be heard explaining that the organization is in financial ruin.


This happens a lot in non-profits - the BOD fires the founder, and then runs the non-profit into the ground.

To restate an oft heard question nowadays, if you wanted to intentionally destroy a very effective organization, what would you do differently?

James O’Keefe WAS Project Veritas. Everyone else were staff. When he was forced out it was the beginning of the end.

It’s a fact that any right-wing organization, if not actively and aggressively monitored, will become left-wing over a period of time. That’s what has happened to Project Veritas since they ousted their founder. It’s now being run by progressive idiots.

Predictable and predicted. They can steal the company, but without O'Keefe, it's like grabbing a lizard that breaks off it's tail and scurries away to regrow a new tail, and laugh at the foolish predator that thought it "had him". They got only a dead, empty shell of a company, and O'Keefe can regrow a new one.

Hannah Giles, daughter of Dougl Giles, was indeed the woman who went in with James O'Keefe and told the ACORN people they were looking for young women to use in their brothel...or some such story. This all happened during the time when Obama's connections to ACORN were coming to light.

"Another ex-staffer told Mediaite that Giles “lacked leadership skills” and suggested the board “did not do their due diligence” when they appointed her." Yes, a lot of men make the mistake of their lives when they hire a "prostitute," then learn to regret it. Unfortunately, this "acting prostitute," Giles, sounds a bit like an airhead, and was certainly not very serious about running a tight ship after she was "promoted" by the BoD.

Suicides by women in Afghanistan are skyrocketing according to a new report that has come out a year after President Biden catastrophically pulled US forces from the country handing it over to the Taliban.

Beginning in April 2014 — one month after then Vice President Joe Biden became “point man” for U.S. policy in Ukraine — Joe’s son Hunter took a directorship of Ukrainian energy company Burisma at a fee of $83,333 per month, or $1 million per year. Burisma was then strongly suspected of corruption, and within only a few months it came under official investigation, following the appointment in early 2015 of Victor Shokin as Ukraine’s General Prosecutor. Then in late 2015 and early 2016, VP Joe Biden engineered the firing of Shokin by threatening to withhold a billion dollars of U.S. aid, which aid he controlled at that time.

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W. Va.), the embattled senior senator from the Mountain State, says he’s “thinking seriously” about leaving the Democratic Party as he mulls his political future. Mr. Manchin, the former governor of West Virginia, has occupied his seat in the Senate since 2010, when he was elected to fill the vacancy left by the death of Sen. Robert Byrd (D-W. Va.). Even as his state shifted further and further into the arms of the Republican Party, Mr. Manchin held onto his seat by presenting himself as a “conservative Democrat” and a moderate voice among his party as it moved further to the left.

Cases of myocarditis soared among U.S. service members in 2021 after the COVID-19 vaccines were rolled out, a top Pentagon official has confirmed. There were 275 cases of myocarditis in 2021—a 151 percent spike from the annual average from 2016 to 2020, according to Gilbert Cisneros Jr., undersecretary of defense for personnel and readiness, who confirmed data revealed by a whistleblower earlier this year. The COVID-19 vaccines can cause myocarditis, a form of heart inflammation that can lead to mortality, including sudden death. COVID-19 also can cause myocarditis. The diagnosis data comes from the Defense Medical Epidemiology Database.

Lawmakers have voted to oust Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., from his leadership role, the first time in the history of the House of Representatives that the chamber voted to boot a member from the top job. Eight Republicans voted with every present Democrat to vacate the speaker's chair. The final vote was 216 to 210 in favor of McCarthy's ouster. Rep.

As his first act as Acting Speaker, Rep. Patrick McHenry ordered Nancy Pelosi to vacate her Capitol hideaway office by Wednesday. Rep. Patrick McHenry (NC) was appointed as Acting Speaker after McCarthy was ousted. McCarthy chose McHenry as Speaker Pro Tempore earlier this year and he now has all the powers of a House Speaker. McHenry ordered former Speaker Nancy Pelosi to vacate her Capitol hideaway office pronto! Pelosi lashed out at McHenry and said his ruthless move to evict her from her hideaway office is “a sharp departure from tradition.” The best part about this ruthless move by McHenry is that Pelosi isn’t even in Washington DC right now.

A 'sensitive but unclassified' version of what is believed to be a possibly long-term U.S. plan for Ukraine outlines various measures the U.S. is taking to assist Kyiv in combatting corruption. The feat is that growing criticism of corruption could ultimately lead Western allies to withdraw their support for Ukraine's fight against Russia's invasion.
