Project Veritas videos lead to one arrest

Pioneer cover

From the press release: From the moment he is handed a possibility of making the first alien contact, Saunders Maxwell decides he will do it, even if doing so takes him through hell and back.

Unfortunately, that is exactly where that journey takes him.

The vision that Zimmerman paints of vibrant human colonies on the Moon, Mars, the asteroids, and beyond, indomitably fighting the harsh lifeless environment of space to build new societies, captures perfectly the emerging space race we see today.

He also captures in Pioneer the heart of the human spirit, willing to push forward no matter the odds, no matter the cost. It is that spirit that will make the exploration of the heavens possible, forever, into the never-ending future.

The undercover videos released last week by Project Veritas, showing evidence that anti-Trump protesters were planning violent acts of terrorism during the Trump inauguration, have now led to one arrest.

More important, the police think the videos acted to stop much of the mayhem the protesters were planning.

A D.C. police spokesman has confirmed that a secret video recording made Dec. 18 by one of O’Keefe’s operatives led to the arrest of one man and foiled an alleged plot to spread acid at the DeploraBall for Trump supporters at the National Press Club. It was not clear whether the alleged plotters ever obtained the acid.

Law enforcement authorities said they think that the successful penetration of DisruptJ20, an umbrella organization for a number of groups that police said sought to wreak havoc at the inauguration, forced it to abandon plans to try to shut down Metro trains and block entrances into the District, according to two law enforcement officials with knowledge of the investigation.

The police are also looking for two other men on the videos.


Every July, to celebrate the anniversary of the start of Behind the Black in 2010, I hold a month-long fund-raising campaign to make it possible for me to continue my work here for another year.

This year's fund-raising drive however is more significant in that it is also the 10th anniversary of this website's founding. It is hard to believe, but I have been doing this for a full decade, during which I have written more than 22,000 posts, of which more than 1,000 were essays and almost 2,600 were evening pauses.

This year's fund drive is also more important because of the growing intolerance of free speech and dissent in American culture. Increasingly people who don't like what they read are blatantly acting to blackball sites like mine. I have tried to insulate myself from this tyrannical effort by not depending on Google advertising or cross-posts Facebook or Twitter. Though this prevents them from having a hold on me, it also acts to limit my exposure.

Therefore, I hope you will please consider donating to Behind the Black, by giving either a one-time contribution or a regular subscription, as outlined in the tip jar below. Your support will allow me to continue covering science and culture as I have for the past twenty years, independent and free from any outside influence.

    “One of these infiltrators was someone calling himself “Tyler.” Due to suspicions, the organizers initiated their vetting process with a false flag operation. Our allies at the DC Antifascist Coalition met with Tyler.”

    DC Antifascist!?…says the one who behaves like a NOT-SEE. …Tyler?, false flags? As in Tyler Durden? The spin-doctors are getting themselves spin-dizzy!
    A month or so ago, Comet Ping Pong admitted to a false flag event to gain sympathy for Amanda, Jimmy, and CPP. I’m beginning to think CPP is a See-i-A house gone rogue. Where is my tin-foil hat?

    A talk station I was listening to mentioned that the limousine that was torched in the riot was owned by an immigrant from the Middle East. A Muslim who did not support Trump…

    Was the women’s march an example of when Trump goes low, we go high?

    Was the women’s march an example of when Trump goes low, we go high?

    One of the ladies had a heart attack by a Trump hotel in DC. The staff either offered or was asked if they could help. When they brought out the portable defibrillator the crowd jeered them in the crude way they treat everyone. After one of the cops or security guards explained the Trump employees were helping save one of the marcher’s lives, they continued to berate the guards.

    Well, wodun, it seems that gratefulness is not a virtue to the leftists. After all, when was the last time a welfare recipient (including those getting Obamacare subsidies and illegal alien students getting in-state tuition while the legal foreign students pay full tuition) thanked you for paying for their lifestyle?

    So far as I can tell, they never go high, but they are willing to claim undeserved, unearned high ground from their low perches.
