He actually had a "minister of propaganda," Paul Joseph Goebbels.
America doesn't have a formal propaganda minister or agency, and it doesn't have a formal secret police agency controlled by the state -- but that doesn't mean there isn't a 'ministry of propaganda' or a 'Gestapo'-like agency within the federal government.
The FBI, in recent years, has fully morphed into the "American Gestapo" and has become the tool of the deep state to intimidate and prosecute perceived 'enemies,' which are mostly conservatives, libertarians and right-leaning independent thinkers. The Ministry of Propaganda has been replaced by willing participants in our 'mainstream' media, who gleefully serve as mouthpieces for the deep state.
Witness what has happened in recent days to James O'Keefe and his organization Project Veritas.
Last week, the American Gestapo was sent to roust two of his journalists before they raided his apartment near New York City 'investigating' the alleged theft of a diary belonging to one presidential daughter, Ashley Biden. In a video following the first two raids but before his own apartment was rousted, O'Keefe explained in a video that his organization was approached by "tipsters" last year who claimed to have obtained the diary after Ashley Biden left it in a hotel room.
Late last year, we were approached by tipsters claiming they had a copy of Ashley Biden’s diary. We had never met or heard of the tipsters. The tipsters indicated that the diary had been abandoned in a room in which Ms. Biden stayed at the time, and in which the tipsters stayed in temporarily after Ms. Biden departed the room. The tipsters indicated that the diary included explosive allegations against then-candidate, Joe Biden. The tipsters indicated that they were negotiating with a different media outlet for the payment of monies for the diary. The tipsters were represented by attorneys who handled the negotiations with Project Veritas.
We investigated the claims provided to us, as journalists do. We took steps to corroborate the authenticity of the diary. At the end of the day, we made the ethical decision that because, in part, we could not determine if the diary was real, if the diary in fact belonged to Ashley Biden, or if the contents of the diary occurred, we could not publish the diary and any part thereof. We attempted to return the diary to an attorney representing Ms. Biden, but that attorney refused to authenticate it. Project Veritas gave the diary to law enforcement to ensure it could be returned to its rightful owner. We never published it.
Interestingly, no sooner than the American Gestapo left the homes of the two Project Veritas journalists, The New York Times came a-callin' and looking for a statement.
"Within an hour of one of our reporters’ homes being secretly raided by the FBI, The New York Times, who we are currently suing for defamation, contacted the Project Veritas reporter for comment," O'Keefe noted in his video. "We do not know how The New York Times was aware of the execution of a search warrant at our reporter’s home, or the subject matter of the search warrant, as a Grand Jury investigation is secret."
The sequence of events was laid out perfectly by former One America News host Liz Wheeler.
- Project Veritas sues the NYT.
- The FBI raids O’Keefe’s home.
- NYT knows about raid immediately.
- FBI steals O’Keefe’s reporter notes.
- NYT publishes what his notes were.
This is nuts. The FBI is LEAKING O’Keefe’s privileged info to the NYT.
Helloooo deep state.

After the American Gestapo raided O'Keefe's apartment, in which agents confiscated a trove of highly confidential documents and information, the Times published another story revealing some details contained in those documents that the paper "obtained" from...someone, Legal Insurrection noted.
"The documents show, for example, Project Veritas operatives’ concern that an operation launched in 2018 to secretly record employees at the F.B.I., Justice Department and other agencies in the hope of exposing bias against President Donald J. Trump might violate the Espionage Act — the law passed at the height of World War I that has typically been used to prosecute spies," the paper reported.
How else would the Times 'obtain' these confidential internal communications that were just confiscated by the FBI?
We don't have a functional republic anymore. That America is gone; it has been replaced by an increasingly authoritarian autocracy of ruling class versus everyone else.
