Something was truly lost when James O’Keefe and Project Veritas had an unhappy parting of the ways, as we reported in February. Project Veritas’ social media following went into free fall after his ousting, and virtually everything they posted on Twitter was met with people saying, “Bring back James O’Keefe.” Many were concerned that this would cause his crusading mission to call out corruption and the left would suffer because of his leaving the organization.

But perhaps not for long.

Now O’Keefe is announcing a new venture for all those who were concerned. It sounds like he will be up and at it again soon.

He started with this humorous tease.

“The Ides of March have come. We launch today. #OMG,” O’Keefe tweeted.

Then he preceded to explain “OMG” — O’Keefe Media Group — with a flashy new video.

The video recounts how he spent 14 years going after the news, only to be “defamed, arrested, raided, and ultimately removed from the organization” that he spent so much time developing. “I always knew they would try to ruin the reputations of those who expose them,” he says on the video. “The pharma giants, the three-letter government agencies, and those who I thought I could trust. But in response, we are going to build an army of investigators and exposers. They have awakened a sleeping giant.” O’Keefe declares. “I’m back!”

“My brand new movement O’Keefe Media Group will not just be me – It will include you. Let’s build this army and keep every statehouse, every city council, every school board, and everywhere people are conspiring to keep power, proactive favoritism, or line their pockets with tax dollars! Become a founding member today!”

He gave an interview to Charlie Kirk, in which he said he was going to empower citizen journalists to break news all across the country. He said he had about 12 journalists working with him who would help him in his endeavor to train people. “We are going to create an army of citizen journalists the like of which the world has never seen.”

“It’s not going to be a tiny group. It’s going to be thousands that we train and equip on this website. We have stories that we’re about to break, but the story today is the existence of this website,” O’Keefe said. He said he would be hosting classes and doing seminars around the country. The “millions of people” out there who want to do something, he said, “well, this is the answer.”

It’s rather a brilliant idea, to help enable anyone to cover that local story that is moving you with the help of OMG, which could then highlight it across the country and then push for the change or accountability that might be needed. And then you wouldn’t just have one James O’Keefe, you could have effectively a “James O’Keefe” everywhere, across the country, wherever he might be needed. That should make the left and all those who are corrupt start to quake in their boots.

The announcement was welcomed by many, some of whom were also tickled and thought the initials truly apropos.
