Antiwar Activist Adam Kokesh Facing Federal Gun Charges for Act of Civil Disobedience

We live in some dangerous times.  But, no one lives in more dangerous times than the revenue generating police who have to meet quotas.  The only reason it’s more dangerous for the police to continue business as usual is because there are video cameras everywhere.  We live in times where the police have been caught on tape screaming profanity at suspects, beating people up,  planting drugs, killing dogs, and even killing unarmed civilians.

Adam Kokesh is not just anyone.  He is well-known around the world.  He is a Youtube personality and did the video more on a dare than anything.  Adam Kokesh is an antiwar activist who made a video of himself loading a gun on Freedom Plaza.
I have been an Adam Vs. The Man listener for a couple of years.  I miss hearing him on his podcastAdam Kokesh is pro-constitution and antiwar.  Pro-peace and preaches the non violent principle. I don’t see what he did as a crime.  Loading a gun to make a video does not mean he moved around with the gun loaded.  I didn’t agree with the particular act of civil disobedience that he  was going to commit and did commit on July 4th at Freedom Plaza but I  understand it.  He has broken many unconstitutional laws by committing acts of civil disobedience. Adam claimed from a jail house interview that the drugs that were found at his home were planted in Adam’s house by the police when they raided it in Herndon, Virginia on July 9th when Parks Police arrested him with their SWAT team.
Adam Kokesh, an anti-war veteran activist used his first and second amendment rights on July 4, 2013, at Freedom Square, in Washington D.C.. Mainstream media outlets dub him a pro—gun activist and he is– he just isn’t as dangerous as government officials consider him.  Adam did not dump paint on Abraham Lincolns Memorial nor did he kill a minor yet he is facing five years in prison for making a Youtube video.  What a joke.  There is no way our tax money should pay for frivolous witch hunts.

Veterans for Peace have resolutions and in these resolutions one states there is a need for civil disobedience in these times.  VFP recognizes the value of non violent civil disobedience as a necessary part of the struggle for justice and peace in these desperate times understanding that there may be a high price to pay by individuals who decide to act. 

CNN:  “District of Columbia Magistrate Judge Lori Parker said Kokesh “poses a danger” and went “out of his way” to violate the district’s laws.”
“Kokesh’s attorney, Peter Cooper, said after the appearance in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia that his client is making a “political statement,” but argued the government is doing the same thing “Their allegation about danger, I believe, is unwarranted,” Cooper said.” “He posted bond on Thursday for that charge, but “never saw the light of day” as police picked him up soon afterward, Cooper said.
Kokesh has a history of publicly airing his opinions. He was discharged from the Marines in 2007 for wearing his uniform during an anti-war protest.””In his now infamous YouTube video, Kokesh states: “We will not be silent. We will not obey. We will not allow our government to destroy our humanity.””
Then, loading shells into the shotgun, he looks into a camera, saying, “We are the final American revolution. See you next Independence Day.”

Next Independence Day people across the country will stand in protest of the Federal Reserve . I am as certain of this as I watch  prices increase on everything.  The Federal Reserve is not a government branch but is a privately owned company that has destroyed our republic for the last  100–years. Everything from the rising cost of food to the cost of war originates from The Federal Reserve.  All of our problems can be connected to the beast that prints money out of thin air!

RE: Raid on ADAM VS THE MAN Studios 10JUL13
(HERNDON, VA 10 JULY 2013)— On the evening of Tuesday, July 9, at approximately 7:45 PM. A combination of US Parks Police (an arm of the Department of Homeland Security) raided Adam Kokesh’s residence. Local Herndon, Virginia police assisted in the armed invasion. The officers used a battering ram to knock in the door after two knocks, and did not announce that they had a warrant. Immediately after breaking down the door, a flash bang grenade was deployed in the foyer.

Numerous police vehicles, including a light armored vehicle and two low-flying helicopters barricaded Adam’s street. More than 20 armored SWAT team members surrounded the house, as well as a number of detectives, and plainclothes officers. Assault rifles were aimed on all members of the team as they were handcuffed without being told why they were detained. Masked and armored police in full “Storm Trooper” gear flooded in and ransacked the residence. The team was cordoned in a front room, while Adam was pulled aside for questioning.

Over the course of the next five hours, the police searched every corner of the house with canine units and blueprints to the house obtained prior to the search. All officers refused to speak to the crew while they we being detained. They confiscated cell phones and personal items with force. Throughout the ordeal, the police repeatedly showed a volatile desire to initiate aggressive, forceful conduct with detainees. At one point, Adam politely requested to use the restroom and was kicked by the officer forcing him to sit handcuffed on the floor. After hours of determined attempts, the safe was forced open and all items inside were confiscated. Adam was arrested and his crew were told he was being brought to the Herndon Police department overnight. Well after midnight, police officers cleared the house.

Fairfax County Adult Detention Center has stated that it has Adam in custody.

The ADAM VS THE MAN Team will be continuing production on the podcast and the Youtube channel as long as Adam remains imprisoned for an act of civil disobedience. We will continue to spread the message of liberty, self ownership, and the non-aggression principle regardless of the government’s relentless attacks on our operation. We will continue to combat its desperate attempts to crush a worldwide, revolutionary shift in the people’s understanding of the state’s illegitimacy—after all, good ideas don’t require force.

When a government has repeatedly and deliberately failed to follow its own laws, violated the fundamental human rights of its citizens, threatened the sanctity of a free press, created institutions intended to eliminate privacy of communication, waged war at the behest of special interests that threatens the public safety, killed hundreds of children with drone strikes, imprisoned and destroyed the lives of countless individuals for victimless crimes, stifled economic opportunity to maintain the dominance of the financial elite, stolen from the people through an absurd system of taxation and inflation, sold future generations into debt slavery, and abused its power to suppress political opposition, it is unfit to exist and it becomes the duty of the people to alter or abolish that government by whatever means necessary to secure liberty and ensure peace. A new American revolution is long overdue.

We who recognize the illegitimacy of this government will withdraw our material support.
We will take every reasonable measure to avoid the theft of taxation.
We refuse to serve the federal government with our labor.
We reject the authority of the federal government and will resist at every opportunity.
We demand an orderly dissolution of the federal government through secession and reclamation of federally held property.
We will provide aid and comfort to victims of the state.
We will mark Independence Day not with a celebration of collectivism, but with direct action to create freedom.
We will recruit others to this cause and share this pledge.

The time to sit idly by has passed, to remain neutral is to be complicit, just doing your job is not an excuse, and the line in the sand has been drawn between we the people, and the criminals in Washington, DC. While some timid souls will say that it is too early, that we can solve this problem through democratic means provided by government, that current levels of taxation are reasonable for the services provided, and that the crimes of this government are merely a tolerable nuisance; it may already be too late. While there is risk in drastic action, the greater danger lies in allowing this government to continue unchallenged. We will not be silent, we will not obey, we will not allow the government to destroy our humanity: we are The Final American Revolution.

Adam Kokesh Calls on American Revolutionary Army to March on 50 State Capitols

(Philadelphia, PA, May 24, 2013)— Political prisoner and activist Adam Kokesh has released a statement from inside the Philadelphia federal prison about his planned July 4th, 2013 Open Carry March on Washington, DC. The statement was read by comedian and activist N.A. Poe, until recently a fellow prisoner of Kokesh’s, today Friday, May 24 at 1PM in front of the Philadelphia federal prison.

[CORRECTION: The statement was read by Lucas Jewell, business manager of Kokesh’s online show “Adam vs. the Man.”]

What follows is Kokesh’s complete and unabridged statement.

“When a government has repeatedly and deliberately failed to follow its own laws, violated the fundamental human rights of its citizens, threatened the sanctity of a free press, created institutions intended to eliminate privacy of communication, waged war at the behest of special interest that threatens the public safety, killed hundreds of children with drone strikes, imprisoned and destroyed the lives of countless individuals for victimless crimes, stifled economic opportunity to maintain the dominance of the financial elite, stolen from the people through an absurd system of taxation and inflation, sold future generations into debt slavery, and abused its power to suppress political opposition, it is unfit to exist and it becomes the duty of the people to alter or abolish that government by whatever means necessary to secure liberty and ensure peace.

“A new American revolution is long overdue. This revolution has been brewing in the hearts and minds of the people for many years, but this Independence Day, it shall take a new form as the American Revolutionary Army will march on each state capital to demand that the governors of these 50 states immediately initiate the process of an orderly dissolution of the federal government through secession and reclamation of federally held property. Should one whole year from this July 4th pass while the crimes of this government are allowed to continue, we may have passed the point at which non-violent revolution becomes impossible.

“The time to sit idly by has passed. To remain neutral is to be complicit, just doing your job is not an excuse, and the line in the sand has been drawn between the people, and the criminals in Washington, D.C. While some timid souls will say that it is too early, that we can solve this problem through democratic means provided by government, that current levels of taxation are reasonable for the services provided, and that the crimes of this government are merely a tolerable nuisance, it may already be too late.

“While there is risk in drastic action, the greater danger lies in allowing this government to continue unchallenged. So if you are content with the status quo, stay home, get fat, watch the fireworks from a safe distance, and allow this Independence Day to pass like any other. But if you see as we see, and feel as we feel, we will see you on the front lines of freedom on July 4th, 2013 for this, The Final American Revolution.”

Signed, Adam Kokesh, May 23, 2013 from a cage in the Philadelphia federal prison.

Kokesh and Poe were arrested on Saturday, May 18, 2013 while speaking to a 32% off New Products at GoDaddy.com! Expires 5/28/13.permitted marijuana legalization rally at Independence Mall National Historic Park in center city Philadelphia, in a space specifically designated for free speech. They are being framed on felony charges of assaulting a federal officer, despite overwhelming video footage to the contrary.

“They just came after Adam [Kokesh] and N.A. Poe, the organizer of Smokedown – the only two there out of hundreds present who were taken into custody,” said Michael Salvi, an observer of the rally.

At a preliminary hearing in front of US Magistrate Judge Thomas J. Rueter in the Byrne courthouse on Monday, May 20, 2013, Kokesh and Poe were denied bail. Poe was subsequently released on Thursday, May 23, 2013. Kokesh was denied release on the same day.

Adam Kokesh and the Inconsistencies between Police Reports and Video Footage on Youtube


I have been reading the police reports on Adam Kokesh and have watched so many different angles of his arrest on May 18, 2013 it’s not funny. There are many inconsistencies the reports.  There was  one video that stood out for me though. The video I found seemed to catch the best angle of the arrest.

Exhibit 1:

Lies

Charges against Adam Kokesh

On or about May 18, 2013, defendant ADAM KOKESH forcibly assaulted, resisted, opposed, impeded and interfered with officers and employees of the United States, that is, uniformed National Park Service Rangers while they were engaged in, and on account of, the performance of official duties, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 111.
Title 18, United States Code, Section 111
50% of Hosting for your Website at GoDaddy.com!(a) In General.— Whoever—(1) forcibly assaults, resists, opposes, impedes, intimidates, or interferes with any person designated in section 1114 of this title while engaged in or on account of the performance of official duties; or (2) forcibly assaults or intimidates any person who formerly served as a person designated in section 1114 on account of the performance of official duties during such person’s term of service, shall, where the acts in violation of this section constitute only simple assault, be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both, and where such acts involve physical contact with the victim of that assault or the intent to commit another felony, be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 8 years, or both.
(b) Enhanced Penalty.— Whoever, in the commission of any acts described in subsection (a), uses a deadly or dangerous weapon (including a weapon intended to cause death or danger but that fails to do so by reason of a defective component) or inflicts bodily injury, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both.
Park Police officers approached Adam he did not approach them. His only crime was he was exercising his freedom of speech. The Park Police aggressively approached Adam Kokesh. Reports were that Adam Kokesh was charged with resisting arrest. What was Adam under arrest for? Was he smoking marijuana? No. Was he in possession of marijuana? No.
Exhibit II:

Exhibit II

Page 2 of  Adam Kokesh‘s charges

Here I have the lies told by the police underlined:

Adam Kokesh

Videos from several different angles tell a different story

Adam Kokesh and others were first surrounded and then arrested at a peaceful protest after attending said protest four times prior with police present without any problems. The officer testifies that he’s been on the force for eight years. The only person Adam Kokesh “locked arms with” was a Park Police Officer. Was the officer in possession of a marijuana cigarette? Lastly the officer claims that Adam “grabbed the ranger by the arm to hold him back.”  I did not see Adam push anyone.  I saw Adam pulling his left arm away from an officer who appeared to be trying to use a pressure point near the thumb.
Exhibit III:

adam kokesh

Page 3 of Adam Kokesh’s charges

In a park full of marijuana activists a marijuana joint was found. Did the police obtain Adam’s fingerprints off this alleged marijuana cigarette? If Adam Kokesh did the things that these police claim he would be required to have a third arm.  Last I knew he only had two arms.

I’ve heard a lot of things about the police in Pennsylvania and none of them were good. At the end of the video I made above I replayed in slow motion what the cops said right after they put Adam Kokesh into a cage like an animal. Take a listen and you tell me why did they really arrested Adam Kokesh. Pennsylvania the world is watching and the people are not impressed with your conduct!

Adam Kokesh of AdamVsTheMan has been taken captive NOT by the Philly Police but by Federal PARK POLICE. I just spoke with a woman in the Park Police (215-597-7077) who spoke with her supervisor for me.
Her supervisor said that the Park Police have taken him to 401 NORTH 21st Street which is the 9th District. They do NOT have Positive ID on him right now and if they can’t get positive ID within the next 30-45 minutes they will be taking him to a near by FEDERAL DETENTION Center.  I was told that if people go to that location they MIGHT be able to help get him out (possibly by ID’ing him.. IDK)  So the 9th District’s # is: 215-686-3090
If you are on the ground up there you need to SURROUND that building IMMEDIATELY.

Story from Infowars.com on Adam Kokesh:

English: A portrait of Adam Kokesh. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

“In a video of the Smoke Down Prohibition rally, policemen can be seen entering a crowd of activists, and shortly afterwards emerging with Kokesh in tow.  According to his Facebook page, Kokesh “hadn’t even smoked yet,” while “other protesters were actually smoking and released after arrest…,” leading us to wonder why he was being arrested/assaulted in the first place.
Kokesh was reportedly hauled away in a white Chevy Suburban, but an update states he has already been released from jail.
The talk radio host recently garnered national attention when Adam announced a July 4th armed march on Washington D.C. in defiance of the capitol’s firearms laws. As of yet, it’s unclear whether his connection to the upcoming event had anything to do with his arrest today.”

What does that mean Was he sent to a Federal Facility? Likely he is in a federal facility because he was arrested by the Park Police aka Federal Police.  As a fan of the freedom loving veteran, Adam Kokesh,
I want him set free immediately.

$2.49 .COM at GoDaddy.com! Expires 5/14/13The police clearly violated the law and falsely arrested him!  This is America not the USSR!  I am not surprised that Adam Kokesh was arrested. He’s been arrested before. What surprises me is that the police arrested him for resisting arrest when he wasn’t doing anything but exercising his individual god given individual rights he is guaranteed by the United States Constitution.  I am surprised  he took the risk of being at this smoke down prohibition with the big July 4, 2013 gun march he has organized coming up. Perhaps he was complacent since he had attended four of these events without any problems! I just hope that he is set free on Monday because I don’t like missing Adam’s podcasts!


Free Marine Veteran Brandon Raub! The Constitutional Crisis: A Wake up Call for American’s


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!

Live Free or Die? What kind of motto is that in a state that locks someone up for doing something we are guaranteed in the United States Constitution- Freedom of Press.

Adam Mueller is facing 21 years for reporting the truth about an incident in a New Hampshire High School. Adam is a journalist who was doing what journalists do. I appreciate Adam’s candid reporting.

I would think that our schools would rather have our children safe than worry about the reputation of a bunch of unbridled adults. Why aren’t these officials being held to a higher standard?

Adam has done a lot on a national scale to help common people root out bad officials and he should not be in jail for it. Free Ademo

In my opinion, it is treasonous to lock someone up for reporting the truth to the public! Imprisoning Adam Mueller is a waste of taxpayers money!

More than 18,000 people were invited to attend to attend the “RON PAUL IS THE CHOICE OF THE TROOPS! (march on the White House)”. Two-thousand-one-hundred and fifty-one people committed to going to the march while 964 people clicked maybe.

I tweeted Sean Hannity and Bret Baier of Fox News two days before the rally took place to get their take on the story and got nothing.

I didn’t think the mainstream media could disappoint me anymore than they already have. When the special news report came in on the television they said nothing about what was going on in Washington DC with our troops and instead talked about war propaganda in Iran.

The troops stood up for our freedoms for the first time that I know of, inside our own borders and it wasn’t even considered newsworthy?

I don’t understand what is wrong with our media!

I tweeted CNN Wolf Blitzer, Brooke Baldwin, and even went as far as accusing CNN of ignoring it on purpose! I told them that they were losing credibility by the minute

I was fortunate enough to watch this unfold live on the internet thanks to feeds available from livestream and Ustream.tv but not one word has been uttered on the television.

Here was my take on the thing.

On February 20, 2012, on Presidents Day, our troops gathered for a rally in Washington DC to march in support for their candidate of choice, Ron Paul.

I was moved to tears as our troops marched in formation on our nation’s capitol shouting “President Paul”, “end the FED”, “end these wars”, and “Ron Paul revolution legalize the Constitution”.

For the first time since 9/11 I felt American Pride! It is the most patriotic event I’ve ever saw in my life.

Our troops stood silent and saluted for eight straight minutes to honor those who committed suicide since the Obama Administration took office. It was eerie to think about because for every second that passed a veterans life was lost due to suicide was honored.

Our troops challenged the legal advice given to them and I am thankful they did.

“We the people” must stand against this tyrannical government and the corrupt monetary system that has wreaked havoc all over the world. We can no longer say nothing or what freedom we do have will be forever gone.
