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!

Ryan Lunza named Connecticut Child Killer turns into a Social Media Nightmare & an Attack on Gun Rights


My thoughts and prayers go out to the families who lost loved ones, especially the little ones. What a sad and terrible tragedy.

ABC News reported this incident for hours. At first, they reported the shooter was 24-year-old Ryan Lunza. They said that “he was the new face of mental health”. Social media networks went crazy targeting Ryan. Then Ryan made a post that shocked thousands. Now, ABC News “can’t be clear on who the shooter is” now they report it was “20-year-old Adam Lunza”.

Nonetheless, they claim that no matter which brother is was the “relationship was still the same”. I have a problem with this kind of reporting because these two men are not the same people. There didn’t seem to be a social profile of Adam that I could find. I couldn’t imagine what Ryan is going through. He just lost his family and his brother is the most hated man in America now. I looked at his profile on Facebook before he took it down and I didn’t see anything that would show he was a violent person. His profile and little conversation seemed to revolve around art. Now, Ryan is going to be interrogated by the police because there is another crime scene at his parents home.

New information found: Ryan Lanza’s ID apparently was taken by his brother, the suspected Connecticut gunman Now the news is reporting that authorities don’t believe Ryan was involved. What a way to find out your whole family is dead.
The politicians and media didn’t take long to make the tragedy about them and more gun control. President Obama got on air to speak about the situation. He looked like he was crying.

“We are going to have to come together to take action on this” said Obama

Then I came across this story: http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/regions/americas/united-states/121214/sandy-hook-elementary-school-shooting-connecticu

Guns obtained legally

CBS News reported that preliminary information suggested that Adam Lanza, the shooting suspect who killed himself in the school, obtained the guns he used in the shooting legally.

A law enforcement official told CBS News that the guns found at the scene were a Sig Sauer, a Glock 9 and a Bushmaster rifle.
Meanwhile, in Michigan, the Senate and House have passed a bill that would allow the carrying of concealed weapons in areas including schools, churches, day cares and stadiums.
For more on that, read here.

I am a parent. I have an elementary aged child who is in school right now. I don’t know if I trust other people’s judgement to keep my child or anyone’s children safe at this point! What do you think of this situation? Do you have children or grandchildren that attend public schools? Are you worried about something like this happening in your community? What can we do about these mass shootings that won’t infringe on our Second Amendment right to bear arms? Should we allow concealed weapons in our schools and churches like they do in Michigan? Michigan approves concealed weapons in schools, churches

The public school system has taken it upon themselves to teach our children about sex and drugs but teach them nothing about gun safety or what to do if someone comes into their school with a gun. When will our teachers be given the training they need to keep themselves and their classrooms safe?
