--   Statue of Veritas outside the Supreme Court of Canada

In Roman mythology, Veritas, meaning truth, was the goddess of truth, a daughter of Saturn and the mother of Virtue.
It was believed that she hid in the bottom of a holy well because she was so elusive. Her image is shown as a young virgin dressed in white.[1]

Veritas is also the name given to the Roman virtue of truthfulness, which was considered one of the main virtues any good Roman should possess.

In Greek mythology, Veritas was known as Aletheia.

 About Project Veritas
Project Veritas was founded by James O’Keefe. The mission of Project Veritas is to investigate and expose corruption, dishonesty, self-dealing, waste, fraud, and other misconduct in both public and private institutions in order to achieve a more ethical and transparent society.

We will accomplish this by:

•Launching specific journalistic investigations and widely publicize the results.
•Conducting training workshops to teach others how to become modern-day muckrakers.
•Creating a method for the public to alert journalists of issues and institutions that need to be investigated.
Project Veritas is a registered 501(c)3 organization. Project Veritas does not advocate specific resolutions to the issues that are raised through its investigations, nor do we encourage others to do so. Our goal is to inform the public of wrongdoing and allow the public to make judgments on the issues.

 No matter how many times Project Veritas breaks bombshell stories with your help, the corporate media and establishment politicians refuse to give us any respect.

Together, we've exposed fraud, inspired legislative change, and disrupted the establishment's narrative more times than I can count.

And right now we have FIVE separate ongoing investigations in various stages of deployment. Some are short term and others will take more time to produce, but we'll release everything as soon as we can!

I know we're a threat to the establishment. So when I heard what Vice President Joe Biden said the other day about citizen journalists I wasn't surprised, but I WAS outraged.

During a press conference on President Obama's gun agenda in Philadelphia, Biden told reporters:
"To be very blunt with you, we're counting on all of you, the legitimate news media to cover these discussions because the truth is that times have changed."
Has he lost his mind?

The so-called "legitimate news media" that Joe Biden refers to are the same folks who have recklessly – some might even say criminally – used their platform to pursue their own personal political agendas.

Who could forget what happened in the aftermath of the Newtown tragedy, when unverified reports by CNN and many other outlets put an innocent man's life in danger?

Or the infamous Journal News map of gun permit holders in New York, which was blamed for at least two burglaries.
…And was later pulled down after our own investigation revealed the hypocrisy of the paper's editorial staff.
Then there's the pro-establishment Mother Jones Magazine, which recently won an award for a politically-motivated undercover video … Despite the fact that – unlike Project Veritas – they never released full raw footage, and likely violated the laws of the state where their video was filmed.

So when I read Joe Biden's comments I wondered, if THAT'S the kind of reporting he considers legitimate, then who DOESN'T the Vice President trust?

Then I realized the answer is YOU and ME.

Considering our momentum, it's no wonder Biden sees us as a threat to the establishment.

In his speech, the Vice President accused "social media" - by which he means citizen journalists - of trying to "misrepresent" President Obama's plans for new gun legislation.

Apparently he wasn't happy with our recent investigation that exposed media hypocrites like MSNBC's Toure for what they really are.

But that's too bad, because you and I aren't going away - and we're not going to tow the line or pull punches to get invited to D.C. cocktail parties either.

If that's what it takes to be considered "legitimate" by the establishment, than I'm proud to be anything but.

It's no surprise they're fighting back to try to stop our momentum, but they can't.

We're on a roll and we're not slowing down now.

Thanks for standing with us and for everything you do.

Yours for Truth,

James O'Keefe

P.S. It seems Vice President Biden didn't like our latest investigation into media hypocrites. He recently accused "social media" (Read: citizen journalists) of trying to "misrepresent" the facts about gun control.

Thanks to you we're exposing more fraud and corruption and growing faster than ever. Keep up the great work.
