James O’Keefe brings Pfizer whistleblower to CPAC stage in first public appearance since Project Veritas ousting

James O’Keefe, the ousted founder of Project Veritas, vowed on Saturday that he is “not stopping or giving up” in the wake of his shocking dismissal from his own company.

And to prove his point, he brought on the CPAC stage the Pfizer whistleblower behind the bombshell undercover video that exposed the pharmaceutical company’s COVID-19 vaccine gain-of-function research.

It was shortly after the release of Project Veritas’s encounter with Pfizer Director of Research and Development, Strategic Operations, and “mRNA Scientific Planner,” Jordon Trishton Walker, that O’Keefe was shown the door.

After, the conservative powerhouse said he reconnected with the “brave whistleblower,” Debbie Bernal, who delivered a passionate speech about the importance of standing up and staying free.

O’Keefe told the CPAC crowd that “we need brave whistleblowers. We need people on the inside. There were people on the inside of Pfizer who helped us obtain this.”

“To be a whistleblower is to step outside the great chain of being, to basically be disconnected from the mothership,” he continued. “That’s sort of like how I feel right now. But I’ve learned a lot of things over the last month, having been ousted from the company I founded 13 years ago, mere days after the story.”

“But as this was happening,” he recalled, “I was talking to one of these people and she was a little reluctant to go public. Rightfully so, she was scared.”

Bernal, O’Keefe said, “was brought into a room, interrogated, who had a red van go to her home, harass her and her loved ones, who was scared for her life,” after she rang the alarm bells over Pfizer’s research.

“Inspired by the series of events that have occurred over the last three weeks,” he told attendees, Bernal “decided to go public with me on the stage right now.”

Clearly, the spotlight did scare the whistleblower. Bernal said she was “scared for my life.”

“I was worried that I would end up in a body bag, or in a car accident,” she confessed. “But I realized that the spirit of fear is not from the Lord.”

“As a believer, I knew that I couldn’t just sit there, I couldn’t just sit there and watch people get lied to, people get gaslit,” Bernal said. “It made me angry.”

Bernal credited O’Keefe with giving her “the courage to come up here,” adding, “I’m so thankful to have people here who are willing to listen and who are willing to stand up.”

“I think we all need to learn to not be fearful,” she said. “Fear is how the enemy controls us. The reason why our country is going the way it’s going is because of fear. People are willing to give up their freedom and their liberty to feel safe. We can’t do that. Freedom is not free.”

Fear, she said, is why “they keep doing it. That’s why they keep lying to you. That’s why they keep gaslighting you.”

“Stand up,” Bernal urged Americans. “Be brave. Do something for this country, or else, we’re all doomed.”

Bernal told the crowd that freedom’s price means “sometimes people like me have to make a sacrifice.”

“I just want to tell all the people here in this room who are employed, if you guys work for big tech, media, a government agency, it’s your responsibility to stand up,” she stated. “Do not let these people keep getting away with this. If you don’t say something, they’re gonna keep doing it.”

“Courage is the virtue that sustains all others,” O’Keefe cautioned in his speech, “and without that, you really can’t do journalism.”
