Is Kokesh a Kook?

He's advocating for convention chaos, even though Dr. Paul wants decorum and calm. I think he's a bee in the collective bonnet.

Isn't possible about Kokesh

Isn't possible for most Americans to support Adam Kokesh - quite apart from the SS incident and the campaign for liberty and others who have had run-ins with him.

Matthew 7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

It isn't impossible that you can attack Jesus Christ and fellow Christians and get any support from them. We know what spirit utters such things, and infilitration occurs by the prince of this world too. It's all we needed. Some of the other things may make sense to others as well.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

Two weeks since the letter

Two weeks since the letter Adam Kokesh read on the air which would have caused the Secret Service to come knocking on anyone elses door. No SS at Adam Kokesh's door. Adam Kokesh is a plant. The SS should have been there the day after it happened.

Four weeks since Campaign for Liberty had to distance themselves from Adam Kokesh.

Six weeks since Adam Kokesh said Christianity isn't compatiable with liberty in a country founded by liberty loving Christians. Kokesh was raised in a east european jewish family.

By no means cause trouble at the convention or be near this person.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

Actually Kokesh did have a go

Actually Kokesh did have a go round with Secret Service after the video, He posted about it on facebook.

Ohhh....Didn't know native american Indians are christians!

Didn't know only christians love liberty.

What exactly did Kokesh say on air that should've caused anyone to come knocking at his door?

He read a letter saying

He read a letter saying Romney should be assassinated.

It was quite a bit more supportive than some of the more naive are mentioning below, but would have caused the SS to show up regardless to get the address of the supposed letter writer. No one showed up. That just isn't possible unless Adam Kokesh is a plant. That isn't what happens in the real world.

The Bible says you will know them by their fruit. When Adam Kokesh attacks fellow Christians, I know exactly who he is.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

Kokesh = FBI infiltrator,

Good observation.

Kokesh was a mole from the beginning. He is methodically instigating freedom fighters to be provocative in Tampa.

Ignore Kokesh and stay away from him.

Our policy should be to purge moles like Kokesh and work silently to gather power.

We wouldn't want to be provacative now would we?

Is this a campaign for respect or liberty? If I had to lay money on it, mine would be on guys like you before Adam Kokesh. Anybody telling you to hide, keep quiet, blend in, say nothing; those are the people that worry me.

Yes, the FBI obviously tought this guy years of....

libertarian theory in order to infiltrate our cause.

This guy is a pretty solid libertarian/anarco-capitalist.

Everything isn't a conspiracy theory dude. If you're going to throw wild crap out there, there is a certain burden of proof that is on the poster of information.

Gullible Nights

It does not take years. Only weeks to digest libertarian theories. This is not particle physics.

Kokesh is an FBI infiltrator. Period.

Kokesh is not a card-carrying FBI union member that I can produce his identification as proof.

We should learn to use commonsense, instinct, intuition once in a while.

Fantastic, Kumar! Your

Fantastic, Kumar! Your intuition and insight will lead the way to cleansing the movement of its infiltrators!

Pray tell me, who else is secretly working for the globalist FBI?

Somebody quick, ban jurgs01!

Somebody quick, ban jurgs01! He is doubting the airtight evidence for why Kokesh is an infiltrating, malicious spy! jurgs01 is nothing but a conspiracy theorist, bent on turning people against each other! jurgs01 works for the FBI, and whoever doubts me also works for the FBI!

Damn

Guess that is a no.

This much I do know

When he ran for congress, I financially supported him.
Regardless of what has happened since then, if he ever runs again, I will support him.

" In Thee O Lord do I put my trust " ~ Psalm 31:1~

no he isn't a kook

now go do something productive.

woo hoo!

While Adam

has been supportive of Ron Paul and the movement, it's not outside the realm of possibility that he's "gone rogue".

When his actions lead to negative publicity,http://www.buzzfeed.com/rosiegray/ron-paul-supporter-who-contemplated-romney-killing - thus turning off potential supporters, then he is a liability to the movement.

I trust Ron Pauls judgement in this matter.

"If this mischievous financial policy [greenbacks], which has its origin in North America, should become endurated down to a fixture, then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without debts. It will hav

Stop it.

Adam did NOT advocate or agree with the idea of killing Romney. He said, infact, it would be a bad idea. Listen to his words, not some dimwit's interpretation.

I heard

from my brothers, friends, cousins, neighbors roommate that Adam liked to juggle kittens. Seriously though, you are right. Adam has been demonized enough by people who have never even met him or watch his show.

When did he say anything about chaos?

He spoke only of voting strategies that could secure the nomination for Ron Paul. He is critical of people like Jessie Benton who seem to have thrown in the towel on the nomination.

If there will be 'chaos' at the RNC, it will be because the elites running the RNC will break their own rules in order to bury Ron Paul. THEY will be the cause of any 'chaos.' Re: Oklahoma, Maine, Arizona.

I did not hear one word from Adam advocating violence. He is absolutely NOT a kook. I have watched him emerge from the liberty movement as a passionate advocate for individual liberty. Where Dr. Paul is genteel, Adam is in-your-face. Where Ron Paul speaks like a scholar, Adam speaks like a pissed off Marine. He is different, but he is a true advocate of your liberty.

Did you expect Ron Paul to tell you to Boo Romney off the stage?

Do your jobs and don't let anybody tell you how to win this. Trust your own thoughts. Everybody knows we're just "bots", and can't blame Ron Paul. If you think booing somebody at a political rally doesn't pass for 'peaceful political action', I don't know what else to tell you.

Adam speaks what he believes

Is he a kook? How would anyone now...I know he fought in Fallujah for a corrupt Government in an illegal war as a Marine...And he knows all of these things now!!!! So ask yourself...Is Adam a kook?...Well if I were him I would be effin pissed off and prepared to get even by any means possible...And he is trained to think this way...Plus he swore an oath to defend the constitution from enemies, both foreign and domestic...I think he just wants to do that...So again Is he a kook? He may be, but he is OUR kook and he is on our side, until he proves himself not to be...No matter what my own brother does I am in his corner, I don't care what he does...We better start thinking this way too because make no mistake...We are in a fight for our lives!!! First they take our rights, then they take our spirit, then they take our lives...We can't give up and we gotta stick together...

Bad food, worse weather, please rEVOLution the states so I can bring my family back home!

Everyone is capable of crazy.

Everyone has a limit and once that limit is reached, craziness consumes their being. Hold someone past that limit for a long period of time, and it will become an inherited second nature. Involuntary. It can be restrained but only to the limits by which it deems allowable. It's so subtle, when it does surface, that you don't even know it's happening until 3-4 minutes passes and you come to your senses and try to recap the events that just occured. It's similar to watching a movie and rewinding at a certain part that you just watched feeling as though you've missed a critical portion of the story line despite having just watched and heard what was going on with your own eyes and ears. Kokesh didn't personally say he was thinking it necessary to assassinate anyone, but by reading someone elses words aloud to a crowd, he was in a sense, agreeing or condoning the idea of it. Humoring the idea, if you will. Does this and other things he's done in the past shed a bad light on the campaign? There's no doubt. Politics is about being politically correct. The Marine Corps is about being a proficient killer. Naturally, he's not going to always say things that are appropriate or appealing on a political spectrum. Does this make him a "kook"? No. Should it be condemned? Politically, for the time being anyway. The campaign is in the right to distance themselves from him. This is a peaceful re3volution, after all. But, what happens if we don't succeed at a peaceful level? Seems to me we'll be praying there's a whole lot of "kooks" who have the same shared premeditated thoughts like Kokesh. Someone who's been conditioned to follow through with these sorts of ideas. You know, like a crazy person. ;)

Sage

I think he's unstable

somewhat of a loose cannon. And that's not good for a movement. We need rational, sound thinking. I know that "Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice" but I think it actually is if your extremism amounts to working against your goal of establishing liberty. I just don't like the energy that the guy brings forth. We don't need 'leaders' to galvanize us beyond just the candidates we're supporting who are running in the elections. People like Tom Woods and Peter Schiff have a beneficial presence in my opinion, but they're great intellects so it's different.

second that

I felt the same way when watching this video. I had thoughts of going down to Tampa and seeing this going down to Tampa militia style. He might be cool but he's just too jacked up for my comfort. No offense to any Kokesh's fans.
