Osama bin O’Keefe crosses Rio Grande into USA

Osama bin O’Keefe crosses Rio Grande into USA

Conservative filmmaker asks: “Do you feel safe?”

In what may be one of his boldest moves ever, conservative filmmaker James O’Keefe crossed the border from Mexico into the United States dressed as Osama bin Laden.

From Project Veritas:

Dressed in the trademark military jacket and dishdasha and donning an Osama bin Laden mask, O’Keefe asks, “Do you feel safe” before stepping into the Rio Grande and easily walking across the border into the United States.

The investigation took place in Hudspeth County, Texas, at a crossing commonly used by illegal immigrants and drug smugglers. In less than one minute, O’Keefe crossed the river, which is only 2-3 feet deep and 20 feet wide in that area. The crossing is outside of Fort Hancock, Texas and only six miles from Interstate 10 on the American side. On the Mexican side, an access road comes within 100 feet of the river. Footprints, recent campsites, litter and well-worn paths mark both sides of the river where O’Keefe crossed.

O’Keefe was not confronted by a single member of U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

“If the President or Senator Reid or anyone else tries to tell you that our borders are secure, they are lying to you.

O’Keefe referenced Senator Reid who infamously declared a few weeks ago that the southern U.S.-Mexican border “was secure.”

O’Keefe closes his blog post with thoughts about the real state of the southern border based on his time there.

“Border security is national security. We were able to pick a well-traveled crossing, easily accessible from both sides, and cross unobserved by federal agents. Just six miles from our crossing is Interstate 10, and from there, the rest of the country. Do you feel safe?”

The left’s reaction is: Well, no one stopped him because they know bin Laden is dead.

Yes, they really are that stupid.

    Yeah, you guys keep whooping it up with a demonstrated fraud / creep, and everyone else is stupid.

      And Gus rides in to prove my point….


        I bet you’re gonna chip in to pay his expenses, aren’t you?

        Prediction – NOTHING from the Gawker piece will be substantively addressed in this thread.

          Ragspierre in reply to Gus. | August 11, 2014 at 12:35 pm

          You may wish to “deal substantively” with a bucket of feces…

          but you would. You only smear monkey poo on threads like this.

          Ad hominem is all you and Gwaaaawker have, you poor, moronic, bung-sucking Collectivist troll.

          Do you think the border is secure?

          Is there ANY lie Pres. ScamWOW has told you have not sucked up?

          Paul in reply to Gus. | August 11, 2014 at 12:50 pm

          The epic douche-baggery of Gaaaawker is on full display in that link Pus provided. The article attempts to discredit the Sheriff because he’s ‘famous’ for arresting celebrities like Willie Nelson! The nerve! To arrest someone FAMOUS for breaking the law! Imagine, it might prevent them from attending (or hosting) a Barry Soetero fund-raiser! That’s almost as bad as arresting an illegal alien for breaking the law, because, you know… RACISM, FAIRNESS and of course GEORGE BUSH!

          Pus, you are a pathetic troll. Go somewhere else where your mindless prog drone drivel will be accepted. You just embarrass yourself here.

          You’re kidding, right? Gawker has no cred with non-loons. And O’Keefe is a national treasure! Breitbart is grinning.

          Spiny Norman in reply to Gus. | August 13, 2014 at 3:28 pm

          Gawker? Really?

          Dear lord…

      Milhouse in reply to Gus. | August 11, 2014 at 1:53 pm

      Lots of people have tried to “demonstrate” that O’Keefe is a fraud, a creep, a rapist, and who knows what else, but all they’ve managed to do is make fools of themselves.

      MarkS in reply to Gus. | August 11, 2014 at 8:23 pm

      Hey Gus, what attracted me ti LI was the intelligent, witty, analytical and troll free comment sections. Please stop raining on my parade.

Oh, is the criminal sex boat captain / vote fraud perpetrator off probation now?!

    Radegunda in reply to Gus. | August 11, 2014 at 1:13 pm

    Whoa — I thought vote fraud didn’t exist? Dems keep telling us so all the time, and therefore, they say, any efforts to prevent vote fraud have to be raaaacist.

    BTW: O’Keefe and his colleagues never cast a ballot illegitimately and never misrepresented who they were. They did NOT commit vote fraud. They only demonstrated the eagerness of Dems to hand out ballots recklessly.

The lovely Italian niece of a friend wants immigrate. She is a dermatologist. Wants to do a residency in the U.S. Husband is accountant. Sorry, can’t get visa, can’t, can’t, etc. We don’t need doctors? Educated people? Our relatives from Norway have a house in Florida, but they can only come for 3 months at a time, pay their taxes, etc. here. Wife is citizen, but…no cigar for a longer stay for him. Sure makes sense to me. As for O’Keefe, this is his best evah.

FYW: Oh, and another friend, whose mother lives in that space alien ship town in NM went with friend to hospital, and as she’s there, bus of illegals are dropped off at hospital, rejected in Artesia, NM–BTW, quarantined for chickenpox and tuberculosis for those children, etc., landing at the border. (Don’t know any more particulars. Very scary for elderly mother, though.)

    Radegunda in reply to gabilange. | August 11, 2014 at 1:19 pm

    I had a nice young German couple as neighbors for a while. He was studying engineering. She had some kind of job at first, but when her work ended and she had trouble finding another job, the U.S. government required her to return to Germany while he stayed to finish his degree.

    That was pre-Obama, but the irony was still thick, since the state and local governments here will do anything they can to allow Mexican and Guatemalan illegals to stay.

As predicted: nothing but screeching and name-calling in response to the Gawker piece.

It’s so funny to watch the *conservative* hive-mind REACT to anything that disturbs its emotional inertia.

How many of you are longing to join Lil’ Jimmy on his next sex boat sting?

    Ragspierre in reply to Gus. | August 11, 2014 at 1:51 pm

    Oh, gee…

    When you post a pure ad hominem bucket of bullshit, you CAN predict that people WILL see it and call it, ya moronic liar.

    IS the border secure?

    IS there a ScamWOW lie he shots that you will not swallow?

    DID you ask Gwaaaaaker for proof that the photo they SAY is a reverse-angle shot IS IN FACT a reverse angle shot?

    No. You just suck that bung. Anal poisoning is a sad, fatal thing.

      Haha, we’re just supposed to take convicted criminal, documented fraud, and sex boat captain, Lil’ Jimmy at his word.

      What’s that you constantly scream about swallowing and sucking?

        Ragspierre in reply to Gus. | August 11, 2014 at 2:00 pm

        You idiot.

        I read your moonbattery Lie-0-tron. There is NOBODY BUT people like Wonkette, A Fiery Lake Of Dog Shit, and Kos-sacks (0’shit) that believe that whole “sex boat” fiction.

        Well, and you. Showing your dementia.

        O’Keefe has holed the sinking boat of the Collective, and you just HATE him for it. Which is the foundation of your psychosis…hate.

        Take warning, lil’ hate-twisted troll. Your time here is limited. Is this the hill you want to die on…???

        Milhouse in reply to Gus. | August 11, 2014 at 2:06 pm

        You’re supposed to take his word, because in all the attacks on him, nobody has ever caught him lying. Every one of his films has proved to be the exact truth. The only “document” to his supposed “fraud” is written on toilet paper. And the only crime he’s been convicted of is practicing investigative journalism exactly the way every journalist does it.

        TB in reply to Gus. | August 11, 2014 at 2:14 pm

        Noticing your use of “We” instead of “I”.

        You know what Gus, you just go right ahead and keep on posting. Have your say here. Your bridge can wait.

        You are a fantastic example of the progressive left and it would be educational for everyone for you to post your comments here.

        Your belief system is a house of cards that relies on emotional rhetoric and ignorance to sustain itself. It doesn’t take much at all to make it all come tumbling down. Simplest thing to point out in any of your comments up to this point is:

        “You don’t know that.”

        No, really, you don’t. Think about it.

        You seek out information that supports your pre-conceived notions while ignoring all else. Anything that contradicts your belief system is rejected without any investigation at all as to whether that information is true or false.

        How can you be objective when you operate like that?

        Ragspierre asked some valid questions to help you acknowledge your own ignorance.


        NAME 5 THINGS RELATED TO THE BORDER THAT OBAMA HAS BEEN TRUTHFUL ABOUT. (I’d be surprised if you could even find one.)


        or you know… you could keep bullshitting.

        JPL17 in reply to Gus. | August 11, 2014 at 3:25 pm

        Gus — If you’re NOT a puss-filled bunghole-sucking moron as Rags alleges, then you’ll be HAPPY to answer Rags’ fricking questions, right? Namely:

        Do you think the border is secure?

        Is there ANY lie Pres. ScamWOW has told you have not sucked up?

        Ok Gus. You want to take someone other that O’Keefe’s word for it that the border isn’t secure. How about you take MY WORD FOR IT.


        How do I KNOW the border is not secure? I’ll tell you. I LIVE less than 6 miles from the Border in El Paso. I drive to work, and pass less than 100 FEET from the border. Every workday. My Law Office is exactly 8/10ths mile from the border.

        Some nights, you can actually WATCH the Illegal Immigrants climbing up the canyon near the Sunbowl at UTEP, near the Student Center if it’s late enough at night, trying to stay out of sight until they get more than a couple of miles from the Border. And No, the Border Patrol NEVER shows up in time to catch them when you call.

          Oh, Gu-us? Do you have a coherent response for Mr. Skinner?

          Of course not. Nothing but crickets from you.

          Thereby confirming Rags’ contention; to wit, that you’re a pus-filled bunghole-sicking moron.

    Sanddog in reply to Gus. | August 11, 2014 at 1:53 pm

    Stop whining and accept your smackdown as justly deserved.

      Gus in reply to Sanddog. | August 11, 2014 at 2:24 pm

      Haha, don’t confuse your dutiful slobbering Lil’s Jimmy with a “smackdown”.

      Got your ticket for his next sex boat cruise?

        Ragspierre in reply to Gus. | August 11, 2014 at 2:30 pm

        And now we begin the chanting of the same lies.

        Which GuZ thinks gives them some validity. Lie, lie, lie, lie.


        But it is all ad hominem. And it never addresses the substance of the report. It is all about deflection. It is never about dealing with reality.

        (Which he cannot. Because he’s nuts. Duh.)

        Fen in reply to Gus. | August 12, 2014 at 10:48 am

        Gus was over on Althouse defending sex with kids. He also posted a pic of himself dressed in a gestapo uniform doing something I won’t soil your mind with.

        So Gus is what you would expect. Loser DU leftist living in him parents house (he turns 34 this Oct) who compensates for the shame of his kiddie porn collection by espousing the “noble” cause of the socialist left.

        Just so you know what kind of wretch you have here. If he gives you problems, just ask him about his arrest for male prostitution at a truck stop near Atlanta. Truckers at trial say he was the ugliest crossdressed Lot Lizard they’ve seen in 20 years.

    TB in reply to Gus. | August 11, 2014 at 1:59 pm

    Oh Hi Gus, how nice of you to crawl out from under your bridge and spout off on things you know nothing about.

    Planning on getting on back under that bridge any time soon?

    Milhouse in reply to Gus. | August 11, 2014 at 2:03 pm

    There are no facts in the Gawker piece (of course; there never are), so how can anyone respond to them? There’s nothing in the piece to show that the border is patrolled. The fact that we can all see on the video is that O’Keefe crossed back and forth and nobody was there to stop him. How can you dispute that? Gawker has a picture of some border patrol agents at that spot at some other time. What is that supposed to prove? Did O’Keefe claim they have never been there, in all of history? The point is they weren’t there then, and they usually aren’t there, because he didn’t have to wait for them to go away before making his film. What else is there in the piece? That he didn’t turn the film into a three-hour snoozefest by showing the entire 6-mile walk to the interstate?! When’s the last time you saw a documentary or news report that wasn’t edited?

    And nothing but projection from Obama’s bus driver Gus.

    W/o being desperate why doesn’t Gawker send Gus over the border as Bin Laden just to verify or disprove the O’Keefe story?

    Progressives like to talk “settled science” don’t they? It’s time to settle up, Gus.

    Gremlin1974 in reply to Gus. | August 11, 2014 at 2:50 pm

    Alright, how about the linked article that Gawker uses to try to minimize O’Keefe video is about crossing a completely different area of the river, that is more hazardous and is obviously a fluff piece meant to try to legitimize illegal immigration and minimize the fact that these folks are breaking the law.

    As far as the attempt to discredit the Sheriff, it sounds to me like he is doing his job and getting the typical crap from liberals and progressives for actually doing his job.

    The “boarder patrol post that Gawker so helpfully points out, isn’t actually a “post” its more like a rest stop and isn’t manned 24/7.

    Basically the entire article is a collection of hyperbole and half truths to try and discredit someone who points out the fallacy of the progressive argument. Typical Liberal hot job, which is what Gawker is known for.

    There now I addressed your “article” happy now.


Answer the simple, direct questions…

1. is the border secure?

2. is there an Obamic lie you will not suck up?

3. what do you have that suggests the Gwaaaaawker photo is what it pretends to be?

Henry Hawkins | August 11, 2014 at 2:05 pm

That our southern border is wide open and vulnerable to terrorist infiltration has been well known for a while. O’Keefe here does a wonderful job in graphically demonstrating that fact.

Obama admin + Dem/libs: “Hmmm. National security or thousands and thousands of near-future new voters for the Democrat Party? Fuck national security. Bienvenido a América! Registrarse para votar por aquí!”

Kudos to O’Keefe!

Henry Hawkins | August 11, 2014 at 2:12 pm

Also…. would someone remind this idiot “Gus” that O’Keefe’s MO* is to withhold video until people like this idiot “Gus” say “well, he didn’t do this and he didn’t do that,” only to promptly produce video of O’Keefe doing just this and just that.

Remember the ACORN videos? “Well, it’s just one rogue ACORN office doing this..” then BANG more videos. “Well, it’s just 122 rogue offices across the country doing this…”

*”Modus operandi” for Gus In Boots’ edification, or method of operation or how O’Keefe be, like, doing stuff.

The true story of the “violation of rights” of El Paso LEOs.

There was no “found guilty”, as the liars as Gwaaaawker said. It was a civil law suit.

There were no damages awarded.

Gwaaaaawker lied. It’s what they do.

And ol’ GuZ, sucker without inquiry, just sluuuurrrped it up.

    Gremlin1974 in reply to Ragspierre. | August 11, 2014 at 3:17 pm

    Gawker also doesn’t point out that the only reason the Sheriff intervened is because they were getting multiple complaints about El Paso police stopping folks outside of their jurisdiction.

    Nor do they point out that the officers claimed to be some “special unit” that had been deputized by some El Paso DA to interdict drugs, which every article I have read never actually addresses whether that claim was true or not, nor does it address the questionable jurisdiction issue. (Yes, this is something that absolutely should have been told to the local Sheriff and that he had every right and responsibility to investigate.)

    Also, having them come and meet him in a parking lot, is far from “being detained” in my opinion. If these officers were acting outside their jurisdiction then it was the Sheriffs job to stop them, to me that is probable cause, since he wasn’t informed.

    Also this has to be the most petty civil suit I have seen in a while. The jury must have agreed since they awarded no damages.

Phillep Harding | August 11, 2014 at 3:27 pm

Copy link and paste to address bar. Works fine.

I actually think he should not have done it in this manner, he should have just done it in no costume.
I think it would have had a better impact as now idiots (see gus) are only talking about the costume and not the actual problem.
oh well, too late now.
no matter what though it shows how easy it is to cross the border.

    some idiots will always avoid the issues.

    Radegunda in reply to dmacleo. | August 11, 2014 at 7:08 pm

    The costume helped turn the story from “It’s easy for a poor down-trodden laborer trying to make a better life to get across the border” to “It’s easy for someone who could be a terrorist to get across the border.”

    Maybe there are less cheesy ways to get that “likely terrorist” look, but some drama was needed to make the point, which is: ANYONE can get across the border.”

      Ragspierre in reply to Radegunda. | August 11, 2014 at 7:24 pm

      Pointed agitprop is supposed to belonga the Collective, as their sole and unique property.

      That is why they HATE O’Keefe and HATE and HATED Breitbart.

      They not only do it, they do it better…!!!

        Henry Hawkins in reply to Ragspierre. | August 12, 2014 at 10:25 am

        There you go. More broadly, they hate conservatives not because they argue with libs, but because they argue too well.

    MarkS in reply to dmacleo. | August 12, 2014 at 11:11 am

    So the problem is that Gus and his ilk are incapable of entertaining a compound thought?

      Ragspierre in reply to MarkS. | August 12, 2014 at 2:29 pm

      Compound…??? Try “any”.

      Henry Hawkins in reply to MarkS. | August 12, 2014 at 2:36 pm

      That’s appears likely. Also, libs operate by ‘credo consolans’ – holding beliefs or positions not because they make sense and are supported by a preponderance of the evidence for them, but because they make them feel good/better about themselves. Whenever emotion thus overrules intellect, crazy sets in.

      Those who believe they have all the answers quit looking for them and learn nothing more. No need for compound thoughts.
