As this story grows I will continue it on this post.
It started with this video for me:
But it was the story that was on #ABCWorldNews was what caught my attention when it comes to this particular story. Apparently people in Russia have become restless and the leaders have arrested a few of their leaders to send a “message to the masses”
Then there was his Mothers plea that nearly made me cry when I read it aloud:
I ask that you pray for our country and my son Brandon Raub. He has been arrested by the FBI and Secret Service for his CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT to express his FREEDOM OF SPEECH on Facebook.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
He is a decorated US MARINE that served in 2 wars for our country.
He is being held for psychiatric evaluation to see if he is “fit for society” they will not tell me where he is and they will not return my phone calls.
I know what they are trying to do, and they will not win. They will try to SLAP PTSD on him, they will say he is unstable. THIS IS COMPLETE BULLSHIT!
Is this what it comes to? Is this MY AMERICA I grew up in? Where are those that are weary of the deliberate stripping and tearing down of our US CONSTITUTION! Were are those that will stand and rise and say “enough is enough” we want out country back. Where are those that adhere, embrace and stand up for the US CONSTITUTION.
I will not be silent, I will not PASSIVELY stand back and do nothing. I will hold the Constitution high and remind our government of our rights. I will lift it up to my Father in heaven and cry GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH!
I AM PROUD OF MY SON. He his one of the most logical, clear-minded, stable, LOVER OF GOD and COUNTRY men that I know.
HE is a Patriot whose time has come. Wake up America! Wake UP!
Here is the original video I was having difficulty seeing it so I turned it
Why was Raub Brandon Arrested? Was he “detained” for a mental evaluation?
Here is a link to that story (press here)
There was a picture on Facebook that explained that there would be a radio show on this story.

Posted by Brent Raub,
Last night, August 16th 2012, around 7:30pm I came home to find Chesterfield County Police cars and civilian looking cars surrounding my home. By the time I arrived my brother was on our porch already in handcuffs.
There were multiple Chesterfield Policemen as well as FBI and Secret Service agents. The agents were in street clothes and some had on sunglass which they refused to remove. I never saw a FBI badge at any point. I have video of a police officer stating it was indeed FBI and Secret Service.
My brother was put into a Chesterfield Police car and driven away. Their reason for taking him specifically is due to facebook posts that are apparently seen as an act of terrorism.
To those of you who question my brother’s motives I say this. He is the most logical and sound minded person I have ever known. Not to mention a Marine and decorated war Hero. His mind is focused and his heart is pure.
He was taken away because he spoke the truth. And, also because someone reported him to the police as a potential threat. To this person, I say shame on you. How dare you. This person does not know my brother and holds no authority to speak on his character.
The truth is Bankers control our Government’s agenda. My brother is a true patriot, who is only attempting to change the country he so dearly loves for the better. Do not shun is methods for he is the true voice of the people.
Now is the time to act and CHANGE this corrupt system that butchers good men.
Brandon is being held for 72 hours for evaluation by the powers that be. If you’re able to donate to his legal defense fund here is a link to do so: https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/8LqA0?psid=30813f268825455cb13753f3ef838728
WANT TO DO SOMETHING? CALL THE FBI TELL THEM TO RELEASE BRANDON RAUB

“When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”
I cannot believe they are going to hold him for another thirty days! UNREAL!
Cathleen Thomas talks to Adam Kokesh
Adam Kokesh interviews Brandon Raub
Are you free? Can you say whatever you want? Do you really have “freedom of speech” in the United States of America? Are you being watched? Can you be arrested for something you type in the heat of the moment? Can you be arrested for posting lyrics to a song that you didn’t write?
The answer to all those questions is YES. You’re free to do all those things but if government officials interpret your postings as a threat they will disrupt your life to detain and study you.
Sadly, in America, not only has someone been arrested for posting lyrics to a song that he didn’t write but he has been detained without any referral by friends or family members. Yes folks, big brother can come and take you from your family to have you evaluated.
Brandon Raub is a Marine Veteran who served in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Brandon was recently arrested by the FBI and local police for “resisting arrest”. He is being held for thirty days so that the government can study him and conduct an “mental evaluation” all because they didn’t like what he was saying on Facebook.
Where is the mainstream media on this? Well the family clearly doesn’t trust them but they spoke to Adam Kokesh with Adam vs The Man in this exclusive interview.
Brandon Raub’s sister Brittany said “Brandon Raub is the most sane person I know, there is no question about his sanity in anyway” “He loves his country, he is a true patriot.” “He is willing to stand up when others will walk away”. Raub’s brother, Brent Raub, said “the people need to know that they need to question everything, I am not even trying to convince you right now, I would ask that you take this and you go question it” “do not believe everything you hear do not believe the media”
Cathleen Thomas, mother of Marine Veteran, Brandon Raub continued saying “alternative sources and places to look for the truth instead of Fox, CNN, and NBC, listen
“they’re all bought” okay, they’re all bought, they’re all sold out, and they’re all in bed with “big brother” and they’re not going to tell you the truth and they don’t want to tell you the truth, they want you to be comfortable keeping you where they want you. With emphasis she continues by saying “they create everything that you want to see and they call that truth”
“It’s a dangerous time for our country” said Cathleen. “There are stories going on all over our country, and I mean horrific stories from mothers that I’ve spoken to where their children are being detained, this isn’t new, they’re trying to shut people up.”
The Rutherford Institute is stepping up and offering Raub legal assistance. The Rutherford Institute, is a nonprofit civil liberties organization, that provides legal assistance at no charge to individuals whose constitutional rights have been threatened or violated.
According to a press release written By Ray Daudani of WWBT NBC12 “Law enforcement officials have stated in press reports that Raub was not arrested. However, as attorney John Whitehead points out, if the police have put handcuffs on you and you’re being held against your will, that qualifies as an arrest. In a hearing before a judge on August 20, government officials again pointed to Raub’s Facebook posts as the sole reason for their concern and for his continued incarceration. Ignoring Raub’s explanations about the fact that the FB posts were being read out of context and his attorney’s First Amendment defense, the judge agreed that Raub should be incarcerated at a VA hospital for up to 30 more days. Rutherford Institute attorneys are working to challenge Raub’s detention and the highly unconstitutional nature of the government’s actions.”
Here is a telephone interview Adam Kokesh with Brandon Raub at the John Randolph Medical Center near Richmond, Virginia.
What’s the buzz about anyway? Here is a link with Brandon’s Facebook rants in a video (for those who couldn’t see his Facebook because you refuse to have one) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sj4yXCzhsZs
How many other people have been detained for making comments about the government? How many of our vets undergo “mental evaluations” by the government due to their Facebook rants? This is something we should all be alarmed about! There is no liberty. What happened to our Freedom of Speech and expression? Have we lost our way? What are we going to do to get it back? Life is too short to live without liberty!
Rebekah Yocum in a support group on Facebook said: “In case you guys haven’t heard: BREAKING NEWS ABOUT BRANDON. He is being transported away from his family, they are trying to make it difficult for his family to contact him. We need to spread this word now.
In the meantime, the admins of this page are busy breaking this news to everyone we know. And we know many. So if you see a problem arise with someone saying anything on here that you don’t agree with, instead of answering them or talking to them, just leave it be. Continue your talks in other areas, on other status’. If we did’t have much time before now to sit and take care of these issues, please keep in mind we have a lot to care for at this exact moment.
WE MUST SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT BRANDON. HE IS BEING MOVED TO THE VA HOSPITAL IN SALEM VA. PRESS PLEASE CONTACT NISHA WHITEHEAD.” 1-434-426-6168
Here is something he wrote in November 2011:
by Brandon J Raub on Friday, November 11, 2011 at 7:00am ·
America has lost itself. We have lost who we truly are. This is the land of the free and the home of the brave. This is the land of Thomas Jefferson. This is the land of Benjamin Franklin. This is the land of Fredrick Douglas. This is the land of Smedley Butler. This is the land John F. Kennedy. This is the land of Martin Luther King. This is the land where the cowboy wins. This is the land where you can start from the bottom and get to the top. This is the land where regardless of you race and ethnicity you can suceed and build a better life for you and your family. This is the land where every race coexists peacefully. This is the land where justice wins. This is the land where liberty dwells. This is the land where freedom reigns. This is the land where we help the poor, and people help eachother. This is land where people beat racism.
The federal reserve is wrong. They have designed a system based off of gread and fear. They designed a system to crush the middle class between taxes and inflation. This is wrong, and it is unjust. It is wrong.
We have allowed ourselves to be devieced and seduced by the powers of the printing press. It is not a good system. It discourages saving: the foundation for all stable economic activity. The federal reserve is artificially manipulating interests rates and creating phony economic data. This thing has decieved our entire nation.
They created it 1913. They also created the income tax in 1913. They encouraged the growth of debt so they can tax you on it. There is interest on the debt. Your government is in bed with these people. They want to enslave you to the government so that they can control every aspect of your lives. It is an empire based on lies. They operate of greed and fear.
There is a better way. It’s called freedom. Freedom is called a lot of things. But there is a true meaning. It means very simply that you have the right to do whatever you want as long as you are not infringing on the feedoms of other people.
I firmly believe that God set America apart from the other nations of the world. He saved a place where people could come to to escape bad systems of goverment. This system we have created works. It really works.
There is evil going on all around the world. The United States was meant to lead the charge against injustice, but through our example not our force. People do not respond to having liberty and freedom forced on them.
Men and Women follow courage. They follow leadership, and courage. Our example has paved the way for people all around the world to change their forms of goverment.
Force is not the way because liberty is a powerful concept. The idea that men can govern themselves is the basis for every just form of government.
We can govern ourselves. We do not need to be governed by men who want to install a one world banking system. These men have machine hearts. Machine and unnatural hearts. They have blocked out the possibility of a better world. They fear human progress. They have monopolies on everything.
This life can be free and beautiful. There are enough resources on this earth to support the world’s population. There are enough resources on this earth to feed everyone. There is enough land for everyone to own their own land and farm, and produce their own energy.
These people have been hiding technology. There are ways to create power easily. There is technology that can provide free cheap power for everyone. There are farming techniques that can feed the entire world.
They are controlling your media. They have dumbed you down through your school systems. They have systematically dismantled the constitution. It is in rags.
The bill of rights is being systematically dismantled. Men have spilled their blood for those rights.
Your sons and daughters, your brothers and sisters, and Americas best young men and women are loosing their limbs. They are loosing their lives. They are loosing the hearts. They do not know why they are fighting. They are killing. And they do not know why.
They have done some extroadinary acts. Their deeds go before them. But these wars are lies. They are lies. They decieved our entire nation with terrorism. They have gotten us to hand them our rights. Our Rights! Men died for those rights!
September Eleventh was an inside job. They blew up a third building in broad daylight. Building 7.
Your leaders betrayed you.
You elected an aristocracy. They are beholden to special interests. They were brainwashed through the Council on Foreign Relations. Your leaders are planning to merge the United States into a one world banking system. They want to put computer chips in you.
These men have evil hearts. They have tricked you into supporting corporate facism. We gave them the keys to our country. We were not vigilant with our republic.
There is hope. BUT WE MUST TAKE OUR REPUBLIC BACK.
It’s no wonder Brandon’s mother didn’t want Fox News doing this story. They painted him in a bad light and didn’t even do their homework. All the more reason not to see them as credible. Here is the story: http://www.foxnews.com/us/2012/08/20/outcry-after-military-veteran-detained-for-anti-government-facebook-posts/
Here is the song:
Are the thought police going to lock up every veteran who quotes songs on Facebook?
