PhoneGate: Pompous O'Keefe Tweets DESPITE Gag Order!

Arrogant, Pompous O'Keefe Tweets despite GAG Order!

The arrogant and ever pompous James O'Keefe has violated a judge's Gag Order. He tweeted to his so-called followers, "Govt official concedes no attempt to wiretap.” O'Keefe and his three cohorts are charged with entering Federal Property under FALSE PRETENSES with the intent of committing a FELONY. These perpetrators are now out on $10,000 Bail. 25 year old O'Keefe is required to reside with his mommy and daddy. Remember, it is a felony to even ATTEMPT to INTERFERE with any Federal telephone line. You don’t need to wiretap. Additionally, it’s a felony to enter a Federal Building under false pretenses with the intention of tampering with any Federal telephone, fax, internet or communication line.

O'Keefe's arrogance is mind-boggling. There is NOTHING in his wiki biography that lends credence to his outrageous behavior. Like Cheney, O'Keefe was never a soldier. He is NOT a veteran. Instead he had a privileged background, perhaps compensating for his less than average looks by focusing on journalism, vs acting. Now, he currently works for Andrew Breitbart, owner of Big Breitbart says he pays for O'Keefe's "life rights."

Can you imagine the outrage by the Republicans if a liberal videographer entered into a Republican Senator's office, under false pretenses, attempting to tamper with their phone lines? In this post 911, high alert environment, can you begin to imagine what Republicans would do?

However, the extreme right wing media are falling all over themselves to defend O'Keefe. Well known Conservative Blogger Andrew Breitbart (Glenn Beck's friend/often source) admits paying O'Keefe's salary but is saying this criminal, felonious trespassing by his friend O'Keefe was merely "just a prank." Extreme Right Wing Blogger Michelle Malkin has buried the story on her website, quoting O'Keefe's "the truth will set me free." Fox news devoted only 4 minutes to this breaking news, yet they spent hours-long coverage of O'Keefe's pimp/whore videos of their ACORN scam. The exception is Bill O'Reilly who said O'Keefe and his cohorts actions were totally INSANE.

Breitbart joined David Shuster this afternoon at 3pm ET. Breitbart made a total idiot of himself, spitting and attempting to overtalk Shuster. I think he may have gotten himself in trouble. He made a statement during the interview that O'Keefe told him NOTHING about his planned shenanigans in Louisiana. I am sure the prosecutors were watching the exchange and we will see if this footage is replayed in open court during O'Keefe's trial.

According to the FBI affidavit, Flanagan and Basel entered the federal building at 500 Poydras Street on Monday about 11 a.m., dressed as telephone company employees, wearing jeans, fluorescent GREEN VESTS, TOOL BELTS and HARD HATS. When they arrived at Landrieu's 10th-floor office, O'Keefe was already in the office and had told a staffer he was waiting for someone to arrive. When Flanagan and Basel entered the office, they told the staffer they were there to fix phone problems. At that time, the staffer, referred to only as Witness 1 in the affidavit, observed O'Keefe positioning his cell phone in his hand to VIDEOTAPE the operation. O'Keefe later admitted to agents that he recorded the event. After being asked, the staffer gave Basel ACCESS TO MAIN PHONE at the RECEPTION DESK. The staffer told investigators that Basel manipulated the handset. He also tried to call the MAIN OFFICE PHONE using his cell phone, and said the main line wasn't working. Flanagan did the same. They then told the staffer they NEEDED TO PERFORM ON THE MAIN PHONE SYSTEM and asked where the TELEPHONE CLOSET was located. The staffer showed the men to the main General Services Administration office on the 10th floor, and Flanagan and Basel went in. There, a GSA employee asked for the men's credentials. They said they left them in their vehicle. The U.S. Marshal's Service apprehended all four men shortly thereafter.
What this tells me is, they were on to O'Keefe and his cohorts early into their scam. O'Keefe is an Idiot. His face has been published everywhere. Who could forget that NOSE?? It is clear his EGO overcame him. He had to be right in the middle of it.

Based on the reports, I am absolutely positive WITNESS 1 recognized him from the beginning. The FBI was called in early. The FEDS gave "the boys" enough rope and allowed them to HANG Themselves... which they did.

I also suspect Breitbart has been in on it from the beginning. He was on David Shuster's show this afternoon on MSNBC. There he clearly denied knowing ANYTHING about O'Keefe's SCAM in advance. I suspect the FBI is also giving Breitbart enough ROPE to hang himself.
