Posted on 09/18/2018 6:46:50 AM PDT by vannrox
(Washington DC) Today, Project Veritas released the first installment in an undercover videoinvestigation series unmasking the deep state. This video features a State Department employee, Stuart Karaffa, engaged in radical socialist political activity on the taxpayer’s dime, while advocating for resistance to official government policies. In addition to being a State Department employee Stuart Karaffa is also a ranking member of the Metro DC Democratic Socialists of America (Metro DC DSA.)
Metro DC DSA is a socialist group that works to advance progressive causes in the metropolitan DC area.
Mr. Karaffas loyalties seem to be with DSA, not with his employer.
Karaffa told an undercover Project Veritas journalist that he performs DSA activism while at work for the State Department. He explained that he drafts DSA communications while on the job at State Department:
“ I’m careful about it. I don’t leave a paper trail, like I leave emails, and like any press s**t that comes up I leave that until after 5:30. But as soon as 5:31 hits, got my like draft messages ready to send out.”
Karaffa also admits that on behalf of DSA he monitors Virginia political news online while at work:
“You could put two and two together probably. With like web traffic . So with web traffic, I mean I could make the case before a court of law that- I’m going to the Virginia sort of, campaign finance website- that I’m just interested in what people are doing politically. But if they also go and look at like DSA minutes and like Officer positions they’ll be like, ‘that’s weird, you were the co-chair of the electoral caucus, and you spent three hours on a Virginia campaign finance website.'”
Karaffa does not believe that he will be caught and punished by the appropriate authorities, saying, “Maybe someday I’ll go to board of elections jail, probably not.”
Karaffa does not seem to be concerned about disciplinary action from the State Department: “I have nothing to lose. It’s impossible to fire federal employees.” When asked if his supervisor at the State Department knows about his activism, Karaffa reveals that “nobody knows” about it.
Some government employees are required to regularly submit disclosure forms to help management identify any potential conflicts of interest that may interfere with job responsibilities. Despite disclosing his political activities and officer positions on his financial disclosure form, Karaffa alleges that:
“ somebody just rubber stamps [the form] and it goes forward I don’t know if [the ethics officer is] all there. He’s so checked out ”
In one exchange, Karaffa’s attitude towards the current administrations official policies appears to conflict with his duty to be impartial as a State Department employee. Karaffa says:
“Resist everything Every level. F**k sh*t up.”
Stuart Karaffa is just the first federal government employee that Project Veritas has recorded in an undercover series unmasking the deep state.
“Weve heard a lot about the Deep State; holdovers from the previous administration resisting change or nameless and faceless bureaucrats slowing things down or leaking secrets in an effort to undermine this administration,” said Project Veritas President James O’Keefe. “What is truly striking is their boldness, they are not afraid. They are even boastful about a warped reality, where they wont get caught and cant get fired even if they did.”
More deep state investigation reports will be released soon.
The crime boss says, "That's because you haven't thought it through. People from your world have so much to lose."
I read this too.
Here’s how I see it...
A quick investigation to see if what this guy is saying is true.
A quick visit to Mike Pompeo’s office.
A quick escort off State Department property.
Anything less than that and the Left will feel that they can get away with this.
It is time to F up these people with prejudice.
I’d contribute to a fund to hire someone to F his S up.
As usual, nothing to see here, folks, move along... Just give me five minutes alone with this pissant and I would knock that cockiness out of him. OK, I can dream, can’t I?
They already do. Please pray that they are wrong.
I still want to believe what they taught me in school about Truth, Justice and the American Way.
That is how it would be done in the private sector. Government union and civil service protections probably make that impossible. How about a transfer to a project in Siberia?
Hire? No thanks, I would gladly pay for the opportunity...
Ok... So Okeefe effectively drops a MOAB on this federal employee who will surely lose his job... pretty much for FAILING to follow the directive issued by the DSA!
So what now??? He just clipped off a big toenail from the DSA which will grow back within a week.
The democrats and the bureaucracy will make a serious (but brief) example of this guy... fire him... and move on... denying that this behavior is typical in government agencies. I know Okeefe has more to come, but even if he publishes 20 videos like this, it still represents only a fraction of the federal work force.
The only thing I found useful in this video which is action worthy was the correspondence from the DSA itself which demonstrates the organizations illegal involvement in our government. Maybe waterboarding this dude for more info might help though.
Also kind of hard for Trump to do anything about this when his own FBI is most likely littered with DSA operatives like this as well.
I think the day that Okeefe gets too close to the head of the snake will be the same day we hear of his mysterious demise. I really do fear for his safety... God must have a specialized team of angels protecting him.
Seems to me like the only effective thing Trump can do is to just fire everybody, and start over. (if he can do that)
Calling Wilson Blair...
Sweet! Trump may not be able to fire these schmucks, but how well will they be able to do their jobs if he yanks all their security clearances? “We can’t fire you, but there’s a bathroom floor in an airbase in Upchuckistan that needs polishing.”
He wont be fired immediately. It could take many months and there is no guarantee that he will be fired.
I guess when a dozen or so Governors declare secession then that will be a start.
So what is his position? Don’t have the time to look him up now. He could be anything from a fairly senior professional to a guy manning the lunch counter in the cafeteria. I’m guessing a fairly low ranking person in a job track without much upward potential. A drone on a treadmill with too much time on his hands.
