Tulsa, Oklahoma, 10/03/2022
Tyler Wrynn, Will Rogers Middle School English Teacher, revealed to a Project Veritas Undercover Journalist that he is a self-described Anarchist who wants to “burn down the entire system.” Wrynn has a large TikTok following where he disseminates radical ideologies to students without parents’ knowledge or consent. This educator had been previously exposed by Libs of TikTok, who called attention to Wrynn admittedly circumventing parents, stating, “If your parents don’t love and support you for who you are this Christmas, f**k them. I’m your parents now.”Wrynn showed disdain for parents who refuse to accept and conform to transgender ideology. Wrynn elaborated further that “The only problem here [in Oklahoma] is House Bill 1775… I can get my license revoked for… being too woke.” Tyler Wrynn Stated he had “no comment” while on a phone call with James O’Keefe after the release.
The very next day, Oklahoma Secretary of Education, Ryan Walters, tweeted a Response Video, “We have many great teachers in Oklahoma. Tyler Wrynn is not one of them… He is masquerading as a teacher, when in reality, he is a liberal activist trying to indoctrinate our kids.” Secretary Walters publicly asked the State Board of Education to revoke Wrynn’s teaching license. He clarified, “This isn’t [a] left or right issue. It’s about protecting our kids and ensuring that they have an education that allows them to be successful without political indoctrination.”
The Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs (OCPA) Reported one of the authors of House Bill 1775, Senator David Bullard, said “The law is doing exactly what it is supposed to do,” in response to the Tyler Wrynn investigation.

She urged her colleagues, “Please take your phones off. Don’t videotape me, please. Don’t like, put this on social media. Don’t make me feel like Project Veritas is with us… We just have to be careful right now… There is nobody that’s got woke politics here. I do not believe for one minute that there is a radical agenda in anybody’s class in this school.”

Jennifer ‘Ginn’ Norris, Director of Student Activities for the prestigious Trinity School in New York City, revealed she uses her position of power over students to convey ideologies in an effort to indoctrinate students. Norris stated, “I just keep trying to disrupt wherever I can, and now that I’m in this position, I have so many opportunities to do that.” She explained, “I can’t pretend I’m [not] promoting an agenda even though I clearly am with all the stuff I’m doing… We’ve been just sneaking things in [through] the cracks.” Further, she notes, “It’s the white boys who feel very entitled to express their opposite opinions and just push back. There’s a huge contingent of them that are just horrible. And you’re like, ‘are you always going to be horrible, or are you just going to be horrible right now?’” In a disturbing turn, she referred to these young students as a “community of targets” for the fictional serial killer, Dexter.

Greenwich, Connecticut, 08/30/2022
Jeremy Boland, Assistant Principal of Cos Cob Elementary School, revealed to our journalist that he exercises in discriminatory hiring practices. He specifically stated he does not hire Catholics nor people over the age of 30. Such discrimination is expressly prohibited by Connecticut Law, Section 46A-60B1. Boland explained “the older you get, the more conservative you get,” as justification for not interviewing certain candidates. Boland’s discrimination sparked local uproar, as covered by News 12 Connecticut. On the evening of August 30, Connecticut First Selectman, Fred Camillo, Tweeted, “The Veritas video just released, and I see no reason to suspect it is not accurate, is shameful and needs a full investigation into not only this administrator, but the damaged caused to applicants, past and present. Our kids deserve better.”
On the morning of August 31, Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Toni Jones, released the following Statement, “Late last evening, we were made aware of a video that had gone viral with a current administrator from Cos Cob School. We intend to do a full investigation and until that time, we will not make any public statements. We ask that you respect the investigation process during this time. We do not, however, support any opinions that promote discriminatory hiring practices based on race, religion, gender, or age in any way, and we want to remind our entire community that our curriculum policies and procedures are strictly enforced by our Board.” Within a few hours, parents and community members had gathered to express outrage on the lawn in front of Cos Cob Elementary School. James O’Keefe met with parents to discuss the situation. News 12 Connecticut’s John Craven was present to interview James. Project Veritas released that Raw Interview. As the afternoon went on, the crowd grew in size and in solidarity against discrimination. Connecticut Lawmakers held a press conference. Among those present was U.S. Senate Candidate, Leora Levy, who called the situation “shocking and disturbing.” U.S. 4 District Congressional Candidate, Jayme Stevenson, said, “Thank you to Project Veritas… This is the moment when the filter has come off and that parents finally have the evidence of things that they’ve known all along. I have a strong belief that Federal Civil Liberties Laws have been broken.” Connecticut District 36 State Senator, Ryan Fazio, exclaimed, “There is no place for political indoctrination and radicalism in our classroom or elsewhere in our government.” Connecticut State Representative for the 149 District, Kimberly Fiorello, added that, “You are all here because this is bombshell breaking news… There are laws that were broken here, and we will be expecting a full accounting of this.” These statements can be watched Here.
By mid-afternoon on the 31, Dr. Toni Jones Announced Jeremy Boland had been placed on Administrative Leave. On September 1, Democrat Connecticut Governor, Ned Lamont, Responded, “I hate these ‘gotcha’ guys, clipping video and trying to make political fodder out of it. That said, I thought the words spoke for themselves and we’re going to investigate the words and what’s behind them.” Later that very same day, Connecticut Attorney General, William Tong, announced his office was opening a Civil Rights Investigation into Greenwich Public Schools in light of the Project Veritas report. As reported by ABC 8 WTNH, Democrat U.S. Senator, Richard Blumenthal, added, “This country was built on religious tolerance. Religious discrimination is inexcusable and illegal. Of course, I support a full investigation.”

Senator Ted Cruz Cites Project Veritas FBI Leak When Questioning FBI Director Christopher Wray
Washington, D.C., 08/04/2022
Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) questioned FBI Director, Christopher Wray, about a Project Veritas Report concerning a document leaked by a whistleblower which revealed FBI guidelines for identifying “Militia Violent Extremists.” In the leaked document, the Betsy Ross Flag, Gadsden Flag, and other common American symbols were portrayed as potential materials used by these alleged “extremists.” References to the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment, using the abbreviation “2A” is also included on the list. Senator Cruz stated, “Yesterday, it was reported that Project Veritas had obtained a copy of an FBI training material, which listed various symbols and themes, which in the FBI’s estimation, were indicative of, quote, ‘Militia Violent Extremism.’ Now, these symbols weren’t things like the Ku Klux Klan or the Nazi Party, which naturally would be symbols of that, but instead, they include, rather astonishingly, patriotic symbols of our nation and our history.”
FBI Whistleblower LEAKS Doc Showing Bureau Targets “News Media” as "Sensitive Investigative Matter"
Mamaroneck, NY, 05/11/2022
A whistleblower within the Federal Bureau of Investigations provided Project Veritas with an internal document illustrating how the Bureau is targeting “News Media.” The document reveals the FBI labeled Project Veritas as “news media,” and categorized the probe as a “Sensitive Investigative Matter.” This was a direct contradiction to the U.S. Government’s in-court position that Project Veritas does not employ journalists. The whistleblower stated there are “a number of troubling things that are happening in the FBI.” Notably, the FBI categorized the investigation into Project Veritas’ possession of the Ashley Biden Diary as Threat Band I, which is usually reserved for “threat issues that are likely to cause the greatest damage to national interests or public safety in the coming year.”
This brave FBI whistleblower went on to explain how the document shows surveillance of Project Veritas, including the use of CAST (Cellular Analysis Survey Team) tools, an analysis which includes cellular geolocation tracking of phone devices.
The document, which lacks certain information due to the restricted classification of the file, also shows the investigation was launched on the same day Ashley Biden’s Attorney, Roberta Kaplan, said, “This is insane. We should send to SDNY [Southern District of New York],” in response to a request for comment on the contents of Ashley Biden’s diary.
James O'Keefe's Opening Statement on DOJ & FBI Overreach of Press to Members of Congress
Washington, D.C., 05/10/2022
James O’Keefe testified before the House Judiciary Committee’s Representative, Andy Biggs, and others regarding the Ashley Biden Diary and the unconstitutional pre-dawn FBI raid of Project Veritas journalists in response to possession of the diary. O’Keefe stated, “In short, we did nothing wrong other than the non-crime of investigating a story, as journalists do. When we reached out to the Biden campaign for comment, Ashley Biden’s attorney, a woman named Roberta Kaplan, responded by saying, ‘We should send to the Southern District of New York.’ In just 24 days, Mrs. Kaplan got her political favor fulfilled when the SDNY approved the first of 19 secret subpoenas, orders and warrants, which gave the Department of Justice unfettered access to my and other reporter’s newsroom, email and phone data- complete with gag orders preventing us from knowing about the seizures and doing anything about it.”
On April 13, 2022, Project Veritas filed a motion demanding return of their property from the Department of Justice. As it turned out, the Department of Justice had been Spying on Project Veritas journalists and secured access to its third-party security detail’s Apple and Google accounts.
On November 14, 2021, The American Civil Liberties Union, or ACLU, published This statement in response to the FBI raid on Project Veritas journalists and founder James O’Keefe, which reads, “Unless the government had good reason to believe that Project Veritas employees were directly involved in the criminal theft of the diary, it should not have subjected them to invasive searches and seizures. We urge the court to appoint a special master to ensure that law enforcement officers review only those materials that were lawfully seized and that are directly relevant to a legitimate criminal investigation.” By August, 2022, a Florida pair pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit interstate transportation of stolen property in an effort to sell it for cash, per the New York Times.
On November 15, 2021, and in multiple supplemental and renewed filings thereafter with the federal government, The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, or RCFP, filed in support of Project Veritas demanding transparency from the Department of Justice. The RCFP demanded warrants be unsealed and released in order to protect journalists and the confidentiality of their sources. A decision is pending.
On April 6, 2022, ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, Jim Jordan, Spoke in favor of H.R. 4330, the Press Act, in response to the Department of Justice’s targeting of Project Veritas. Representative Jordan stated, “In a free country, we need to make sure that the government cannot unmask journalist’s sources without good cause. This bill provides those protections and it is time we get this legislation signed into law.”

Jedeed writes on, “This is, as promised, an unforgettable experience.”

Military Documents about Gain of Function Contradict Fauci Testimony Under Oath
Washington, D.C., 01/10/2022
Dr. Anthony Fauci had testified many times before Congress that the U.S. government was never involved in gain of function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. In January of 2022, Project Veritas obtained startling never-before-seen documents regarding the origins of COVID-19, Gain of Function research, vaccines, potential treatments which have been suppressed, and the government’s effort to conceal all of this.
Military documents state that EcoHealth Alliance approached DARPA in March of 2018 seeking funding to conduct gain of function research of bat-borne coronaviruses. The proposal, named Project Defuse, was rejected by DARPA over safety concerns and the notion that it violates the gain of function research moratorium. The main report regarding the EcoHealth Alliance proposal leaked on the internet a couple of months prior but remained unverified until Project Veritas obtained a separate report to the Inspector General of the Department of Defense, written by U.S. Marine Corp Major, Joseph Murphy, a former DARPA Fellow. Dr. Fauci has repeatedly maintained, under oath, that the National Institute of Health (NIH) and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID) have not been involved in Gain of Function research. However, according to the documents Project Veritas obtained, DARPA certainly classified the research as Gain of Function.
Project Veritas reached out to DARPA for comment regarding the hidden documents and spoke with the Chief of Communications, Jared Adams, who said, “It doesn’t sound normal to me,” when asked about the way the documents were shrouded in secrecy. “If something resides in a classified setting, then it should be appropriately marked,” Adams said. “I’m not at all familiar with unmarked documents that reside in a classified space, no.”
James O’Keefe posed a foundational question to DARPA, “Who at DARPA made the decision to bury the original report? They could have raised red flags to the Pentagon, the White House, or Congress, which may have prevented this entire pandemic that has led to the deaths of 5.4 million people worldwide and caused much pain and suffering to many millions more.”
On the 11 of January, Senator Roger Marshall Demanded Dr. Fauci release all Gain of Function records. He asks, “Why did you tell the committee that your agency has never funded Gain of Function research? Why did your agency award this grant despite it being rejected by DARPA due to its concerns about violating the moratorium in place? And finally, will you commit today to release all records, fully unredacted, by the end of this week so Congress and the American people can know the truth about NIH’s role in the origins of COVID-19?”
Dr. Fauci has not yet responded to a request for comment on this story.
Dean Baquet Clashes with James O’Keefe & Project Veritas, Leaves New York Times
New York, New York, 2017-2022
Dean Baquet, Executive Editor for the New York Times (May 2014 - June 2022), on two occasions, made bizarre attacks on Project Veritas and James O’Keefe on CSPAN and at a TimesTalk event in D.C. in October of 2017. Baquet bashed, “James O’Keefe, who I think is a despicable person who runs a despicable operation,” following part one of a Veritas expose involving the people behind the Gray Lady. Baquet’s statements paled against several Veritas releases (The American Pravda Series) in which employees of the Times revealed to undercover journalists their clear bias and political agenda. The New York Times responded to part one in a Statement, calling the subject of the video, Nick Dudich “a recent hire in a junior position.” Dean Baquet Described Dudich as, “a kid... who just started his career in journalism.” He acknowledges, “but he said things he shouldn’t have said... He said things that were, you know, damaging and I will deal with that. But the greater sin wasn’t his, it was [Project Veritas’].” Baquet could not make the same defense for Senior Editor for the London Office, Des Shoe, who elaborated upon their click-chasing environment, how the “Trump bump” resulted in subscriptions “skyrocket[ing],” and that “the main objective is to grab subscribers. You do that any way you can.” AP News reported the newspaper would begin tightening their social media policies in response to the Veritas releases. When asked for comment, Dean Baquet smiled smugly, although Rendered Mute, and walked alongside James O’Keefe for several city blocks. The unpleasant “bond” between Dean Baquet and James O’Keefe has lasted several years.
Project Veritas filed a defamation lawsuit against the New York Times in 2020, after the paper published a piece calling Veritas’ report “deceptive” and part of a “coordinated disinformation campaign.” This suit stems from multiple September 2020 Times articles discrediting the Liban Mohamed voter fraud story in Minnesota. Somewhere along the way, apparently related to, or contemporaneously with, the FBI raid on Project Veritas for possessing the Ashley Biden Diary, the New York Times improperly acquired Project Veritas privileged legal memos, which were subsequently published. On Christmas Day, 2021, CNN reported, “In an unusual written ruling, Justice Charles Wood of the Westchester County Supreme Court directed the New York Times to return to Project Veritas any physical copies of legal memos prepared by one of the group’s lawyers, and to destroy electronic versions.” A few days later, Politico covered a ruling by the Appellate Division of the New York State Supreme Court which allowed the Newspaper to maintain access to Veritas’ legal memos, despite not being authorized to publish them. This would not last long, as Reuters reported in February of 2022 that the Times is now free to publish Veritas’ attorney-client privileged documents once again. Elizabeth Locke, a lawyer for Project Veritas, said the Times “violated Veritas’ substantial rights.” On November 14, 2021, The American Civil Liberties Union, or ACLU, published This statement in response to the FBI raid which reads, “Unless the government had good reason to believe that Project Veritas employees were directly involved in the criminal theft of the diary, it should not have subjected them to invasive searches and seizures. We urge the court to appoint a special master to ensure that law enforcement officers review only those materials that were lawfully seized and that are directly relevant to a legitimate criminal investigation.”
On November 15, 2021, and Again after nearly eight months of back-and-forth with the federal government, on July 1st, 2022, The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, or RCFP, filed in support of Project Veritas demanding transparency from the Department of Justice. The RCFP demanded warrants be unsealed and released in order to protect journalists and the confidentiality of their sources.
All along, The New York Times has seized every opportunity to disparage James O’Keefe and Project Veritas. From Dean Baquet to the defamation suit, we mustn’t leave out the infamous Matthew Rosenberg, a Pulitzer Prize winner and National Security Reporter for the Gray Lady. In March, 2022, the NY Post reported on Veritas Video revealing Rosenberg making extremely crass remarks about colleagues, lamenting the “over-the-top” reaction to the events of January 6, noting “there were a ton of FBI informants among the people who attacked the Capitol,” which directly contradicts his own January 6 reporting, among other revelations. When Confronted by James O’Keefe about his shocking comments, Rosenberg said he “absolutely” stands by his comments, before ducking into a pharmacy.
Project Veritas has maintained a contentious relationship with the New York Times as a result of these transgressions spanning several years. The defamation suit is on-going. The Times reported in late April, 2022, that Dean Baquet, eight-year editor, would be Stepping Down.
