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!

 


Adam Kokesh Arrested for Resisting Arrest


Adam Kokesh arrested- again…

I am a loyal Adam vs The Man listener. I follow Adam Kokesh on Twitter, Facebook, and Youtube. Adam Kokesh, internet talk show host and veteran has been planning an armed march on Washington, D.C. for Adam Kokesh (right), Reverend Lennox Yearwood,...July 4th was arrested for another act of civil disobedience on, May 18, 2013. He has court Monday on these trumped up charges. Adam Kokesh has attended four other “Smoke Down Prohibition” events making this the fifth event he has attended. Adam was arrested for resisting arrest. The cops are lying and new video footage on Youtube proves that Adam wasn’t resisting.

Protestors chanted “no victim no crime” over and over

Adam is locked up in a federal jail… he will go in front of a judge Monday… he is being charged with resisting arrest… that us all I know – Lucas

“ LISTEN UP FOLKS, Adam Kokesh friends, family and supporters.
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.
MELT the phone lines”

Story from Infowars.com on Adam Kokesh:

“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!

I am so glad that the people who live near Cleveland Park spoke out against the “Time Check Recreation Center” going in their backyard.  From my understanding the city didn’t start the recreation center– it was started by the neighbors of Time Check and was later taken over by the city’s “parks and recreation” department.

We haven’t had the recreation center for five years. I think that the city has gone too far in asking for federal handouts.  With all of the other disasters that have happened since our flood I can’t imagine every disaster going the route Cedar Rapids did and getting very far with the federal government. I hope that FEMA comes back and holds these people accountable for the waste and corruption that has taken place here since the 2008 flood.
If you don’t think the city is spending federal money like it’s free money then you need to take a look at councilman Chuck Swore in this video below.


Media Blackout on Troops who Rallied for Ron Paul in Washington DC on President’s Day


I have never been as proud to be an American as I am now and that wouldn’t have been possible if it weren’t for our troops and their passion for Ron Paul.

Our troops were warned:

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.
