BSABSVR: spongeboob: So I looked up Doug Giles because I don't think I have ever heard of him, and he writes for Townhall now I have heard of it but then the brief bio on Townhall they say this
Doug Giles is the Big Dawg at ClashDaily.com.

Which just raises more farking questions.
What kind of douche calls someone a Big Dawg and not big dog or just say he is what ever title he actually has at this site?
Second what the hell is ClashDaily.com? I don't remember it ever being linked on Fark and look at the sites that are linked on here all the time, this must be really be the bottom of the barrell.

Doug Giles is a right-wing evangelical preacher who defends the manliness of conservatives compared to the wussitude of liberals. Basically, he's every American Thinker article if it were written by a middle-aged father who imagines himself a pro-wrestler from the 80s.


Manliness meaning likes guns and shoots them as often as possible and would like to carry a gun everywhere so someday he can be a real life action hero.


Chance of ever having served in Uniform about 3%

Mikey1969: skullkrusher: Mikey1969: skullkrusher: Mikey1969: johnryan51: Why isn't he in jail for bugging a senators office?

Because he sucks the right cocks.

probably had something to do with the lack of stuff to bug offices with too

So please enlighten us as to what he was doing there... Delivering Girl Scout cookies, maybe? His stated purpose was to "prove" that the Senator was ignoring constituent calls, if he wasn't bugging the place, how else was he going to prove this? His stellar word of honor?

If  you want someone imprisoned for bugging a senator's office, at the very least I think they should be in possession of equipment to do so. The fact that you really, really, really hate the guy doesn't make him guilty of whatever you want him to be guilty of. Hell, he might've been there to plant a dirty bomb too!

It was his stated intention. Just because he's so retarded that he couldn't bring the right equipment, it doesn't change that fact that it's what he SAID he was going to do.


his stated intention was to prove that the senator was ignoring constituents calls. I suppose the only way he could do that would be to bug her phones. It's not like the guy had a history... nay, is infamous for, surreptitiously videotaping the actions of people in offices under false pretenses.

Letten is known as the "Justache" and he resigned in disgrace after his staff was blogging info about people they were investigating and prosecuting.  Letten knew about it and allowed it and it forced the feds to drop cases against some allegedly very corrupt and mafia style people.  Some of his staff will eventually go to trial for leaking classified info in an attempt to persuade public opinion and perhaps influence potential jury candidates.

It's sad when you can't tell which side is up to the most criminal intent in a federal case.  Sadly, this probably will cause many politicos to get off scott free because of Letten's disregard for the law.

Louisiana is a one party consent state. At the worst he's guilty of trespass. Hardly grounds to imprison him for bugging a senator's office which is a good bit more serious than impersonating a phone company worker

O'Keefe wants it to be very clear that he did not enter federal property with the intent to tap Mary Landrieu's phone to the point where he sues.

http://www.poynter.org/latest-news/regret-the-error/161452/star-ledge r -corrects-story-that-sparked-james-okeefe-lawsuit/

I find it funny that in this video he claims he presented legal identification or something but prevouosly pled a deal to a midemeanor for entering under false pretenses. " I admit I totally LIED about who I was and why I was there, but hey, flashed my DL at someone. Take that, Law guy!"

Hey Skully. How's the job, how's the kid, how's the city? If Fark hasn't missed you, I have. Cheers!

Mr. O'Keefe waited until he was no longer on probation before he pulled this most recent stunt. His past behavior makes it likely that it is only going to be a matter of time before he winds up in jail. Antagonizing an ex-US Attorney isn't going to win him a lot of sympathy from the bench. O'Keefe would be well advised to steer clear of any future illegal activities.

busy as fark but going well. Working 11-12 hour days these days combined with the 30 day performance enhancing drug suspension I got for being too awesome made for very little Farking of late.

Boy got his fingers caught in the shower door tonight. That made for some excitement. Poor little dude. Otherwise he's been living it up. He spent 2 weeks in the Hamptons with my wife's parents eating well and building sandcastles.

Sneaking into a public official's office under false pretenses in this email is pretty much grounds to get a body cavity search by Homeland Security. AND some bomb sniffing dogs. As I said, he got off lucky, I'm sure there is some nice stuff in the Patriot Act that would have him in jail by now if he didn't have connections, considering how many 'friends' he makes wherever he goes.

This shiatstain deserves every pile-on that Karma decides to send his way.

People like O'keefe never learn, they always think they are smarter or better connected than everyone else so the rules don't apply to them. Eventually he will go to far, he has to what else is he going to do be one of the sheeple, it is just a question of how much damage he will do before he gets his comeuppance.
 
2013-08-26 11:17:16 PM
There was no bugging. They were not their to tap phones. They were going to pose as phone company technicians and try to get video of anyone saying something stupid or even vague enough to be edited as controversial. This is what he does. He is a small dick, one-trick pony.

2-When he comes to realization that his form of partisan gonzo journalism is no longer welcome he is now all about truth. Except people see what he is capable of doing in his past and they won't even talk to his ass.

Karma is a biatch.

And he is weasel just like that attorney pointed out, even if his legal points may have been weak.

cameroncrazy1984: jigger: Hmm. Not any fan of this guy or anything, but that video only served to make that federal prosecutor look bad. And no prosecuting attorney has any business calling any political activist a coward.

You're kidding, right? Why not?


Because he's a twit. A twit and a half wit who happens to like this cowardly little asshat and his lying, weasely face and the half assed "work" that he's done as a faux journalist. It's not about the fact that the fella lies, it's not the fact that he crafts highly edited videos to generate support or tear down those he disagrees with, it's the fact that simply because he is on the right "side" that he is thus instantly an "activist" while others would call him a troll given a camera.

And that's part of the problem. So long as he's on the right "side" then folks will spring to defend him. Never mind that his work is not just flawed, it is in itself a special effect and even more highly slided to right than anything that Michael Moore has done for the left. James O'Keefe is not an "activist" in the least. He's a mechanic in smear campaigns. He isn't an activist, he's an operator and equal parts con man, snake oil salesman, and mercenary, and hiding behind those who would call him an activist, because he's getting paid by the right people to sling mud. He is part of a special class of muckraker now en vogue, who now typify the tactics of a special breed of scum who don't particularly care about any sort of moral high ground, because for them, that is a foreign concept. And that they happen to work for folks who like to wrap themselves in flag and the banner of a moral ideals, only makes their use all the more ironic.

Calling O'Keefe a cowardly little spud is candy coating it.

TheBigJerk: Mikey1969: Sneaking into a public official's office under false pretenses in this email is pretty much grounds to get a body cavity search by Homeland Security. AND some bomb sniffing dogs. As I said, he got off lucky, I'm sure there is some nice stuff in the Patriot Act that would have him in jail by now if he didn't have connections, considering how many 'friends' he makes wherever he goes.

It's not just his connections, he's rich.  His family is old money, and that's how he gets by despite not having a real job.


Yet he's the exact type of person who pulls out this whole "Obama's never had a 'real' job" bullshiat every chance he gets.

What a giant turd. He's literally a big piece of fecal matter walking the earth.

jigger: Hmm. Not any fan of this guy or anything, but that video only served to make that federal prosecutor look bad. And no prosecuting attorney has any business calling any political activist a coward.


The bar for"political activist" sure has sunk low...seriously, I put O'Keefe on the same level as those trustafarians who protest tuition hikes by blocking off classrooms, then getting daddy's lawyers to get the charges dropped once the police have the GALL to arrest them instead of falling to their knees and weeping at the display of justice like the movies taught them would happen!

defects: spongeboob: defects: Letten is known as the "Justache" and he resigned in disgrace after his staff was blogging info about people they were investigating and prosecuting.  Letten knew about it and allowed it and it forced the feds to drop cases against some allegedly very corrupt and mafia style people.  Some of his staff will eventually go to trial for leaking classified info in an attempt to persuade public opinion and perhaps influence potential jury candidates.

It's sad when you can't tell which side is up to the most criminal intent in a federal case.  Sadly, this probably will cause many politicos to get off scott free because of Letten's disregard for the law.

You have citations for Letten forcing 'the feds' to drop cases against  very corrupt and 'mafia style people' if so can we see them.

Would he have resigned if he didn't know his crew was acting corruptly?  When every other comment in here has full citation I'll post mine.


BZZT! "You first" and supposition are not acceptable answers when asked to support your statement with facts. You lose, needledick.

Except O'Keefe would have done it by filming a video after hours, with people in cheap police costumes instead of actual cops "arresting" him, and try to get someone fired for it.

skullkrusher: Soup4Bonnie: Hey Skully. How's the job, how's the kid, how's the city? If Fark hasn't missed you, I have. Cheers!

busy as fark but going well. Working 11-12 hour days these days combined with the 30 day performance enhancing drug suspension I got for being too awesome made for very little Farking of late.

Boy got his fingers caught in the shower door tonight. That made for some excitement. Poor little dude. Otherwise he's been living it up. He spent 2 weeks in the Hamptons with my wife's parents eating well and building sandcastles.

City has been beautiful for the past week or so. 75, no humidity until today. Been almost Fall-like.
How's going with you?


Owie, poor little Count. I'm sure there was much squeaking and squalling. How much sand did he eat along with the grandparents' food?

Satanic_Hamster: Likely get taken down like the one I did to punch Grover Norquist in the dick.


That was taken down due to a technicality.  Grover Norquist has no dick.

MJMaloney187: Say what you will about O'Keefe, he's a political activist and an investigative journalist


Actually, he more closely resembles Winston Smith in 1984 -- he doesn't report the news, he creates it. He doesn't cover any stories, he goes and pokes at people and things until he has enough footage to make one.

You see, honesty and integrity don't exist in the minds of people who are corrupt and deceitful. It doesn't occur to them that their opponents might actually be honest or completely innocent. James O'Keefe falls into this category. It's not that his targets are corrupt and fraudulent (whether they are or not is a different discussion), it's that in his mind they already are, irrespective of the facts. And if they aren't -- no, THEY ARE, and his mission is to expose this corruption. If it does not exist -- no, it DOES exist. He's already decided that it does and he will expose it through obfuscation, lies, and trickery if he has to. Essentially, invent something that might not actually be there. If I had a degree in Psychology I might call this self-enforced psychosis, but on a much less clinical level it's simply Colbert's "truthiness" in the hands of concentrated activism.

Every one of O'Keefe's media stunts follow this model of truth-fabricating investigative activism to the extent that he is not really exposing or uncovering any actual news, he is just inventing it. And he is not bothered by that. After all, to the kleptomaniac of truth, it does not matter what the facts are, only who believes in them. I prefer to call this Orwellian Journalism (like yellow journalism before it, only instead of merely sensationalizing news, it actively creates new news on top of old news, like a palimpsest, erasing and rewriting history in a manner of its choosing). The organization he founded to run these scams is even called Project Veritas (Latin for truth, a snide slice of doublethink).

With the technological tools available today, anyone can edit anyone else into any public perception they want (Reality TV is a championship example of this). Thus, James O'Keefe can throw together a damning piece of forgery, and it gets heralded ostentatiously by the people who agree with its political narrative, denounced vehemently by the people who don't, and treated as suspect by the people who don't know who he is, where he's coming from or why he's even doing this (they number comparatively few, unfortunately). No one thinks to critically challenge him because the story is more interesting than the facts -- the media wags the dog.

This take-no-prisoners hyper-edit media manipulation style will undoubtedly catch on in America and be adopted by opponents of James O'Keefe who don't want to see him monopolize this competitive advantage for too long. Politics is all about building a better missile to catch a more evasive jet, each side devolving into a war over public opinion, public perception, and public acceptance of factual events. And all of it driven by lies, hatred, folly, evasion, obfuscation, deceptive editing, and mistrust. The ends justifies the means. There are no journalistic standards.

If you don't see anything wrong with what James O'Keefe is doing, then you are what's wrong with America.

GoldSpider: udhq: Showing up at the home of your prosecutor is in itself a threatening action.

Were the police called?  If not, why?


The PA should have stood his ground and gunned down the trespasser. Since o'keefe is a conservative never take the risk he is going to get violent.
