Why all the hate below?

Why all the hate below? Immature??? The guy is what, all of 30 years old??? Give him a break!!! When this guy is in his mid-40's, if he keeps it up, he'll be sharp as hell and all you haters will eat your words....

Facebook, a government tool for control.

My High School did the same thing to me, they used a comment I made on my Facebook to detain me. For the love of god, they stated that my profile picture was "menacing" as if it were a reason to detain a person.

Get out of Facebook, don't use it.

Ron Paul 2016


Everyone on here had nothing but great things to say about Adam, but as soon as he feels "betrayed" by Ron Paul, whether or not his feelings of betrayal are based on a misunderstanding or not, and decides not to "fully" support Ron Paul, all of a sudden SOME of you start calling him immature or a jerk. I heard his complaint about Ron Paul, and I didn't see anything he said to be in a malicious nature, and most of his beef was with traitors within Paul's campaign. I think some of you need to ease up on him and allow him to have his point of view. I'm sure their are many liberty lovers who don't necessarily support Ron Paul for one reason or another, but that should be okay, and not make them your enemy. This is just my opinion anyways.


could not have said it better myself. He has given us some of the best interviews to watch on the DP... really struggling to understand why the "freedom" community, doesn't like him being free and unafraid to challenge everything. You don't have to agree with everything he says and does.... but if you are on this forum, you should at least support his right to do, and say as he pleases (if he is not physically harming anyone). What is up with all the supposed freedom lovers? If you disagree... fine than either don't comment, or comment on why you disagree... but is it necessary to be so hateful toward the man himself?

"I don't know if the world is full of smart men bluffing
or imbeciles who mean it."

Adam is a "showman" (not to be confused with Shawman)

we need to see what this case produces....there are pundits in the internet world just as there are pundits in the MSM...

maybe I am crazy...but

this "phone interview" seems to canned to be real....though the voice on the other end seems sincere...and the video of the mom and sister seen on this web site seem sincere.

Where is the ACLU? MIA as

Where is the ACLU? MIA as always.

Out of funds. If you check you can verify.


Free includes debt-free!

I believe it is a set up but not in the way one might think.

The picture of Brandon Raub on the video pictured in the OP looks like the same Marine on this Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/raub.brandon?sk=wall

As you can see from this page there is nothing particularly objectionable and certainly nothing to trigger a take down by the FBI. There is a picture of Adam Kokesh under his TV selections.

However there is another Facebook account in the name of Brandon J. Raub who looks like the same Marine but in a more threatening pose:


This is the one that is used by Adam Kokesh during his interview with Brandon.

This second Facebook account is the one that has also been featured in a couple of youtubes dealing with this case. One of these youtubes is by someone who is a friend of Brandon and so would know him, what he looks like and and may be involved in the set up. I have lost track of that video but the second one covers the same ground but with a different perspective. As I say this featured the Facebook page of Brandon J. Raub as did the first video I watched and this second video suggests that this was a set up by Brandon himself. The case he makes for this is quite compelling.


What is also interesting is that the original straight Brandon Raub is listed as a friend on the wall of Brandon J Raub who I have taken to calling Brandon Bizarro because I believe he is a character created by the original Brandon Raub for the very purpose of being detained. I believe he is doing this to draw attention to the evil nature of the US government and I look forward to seeing how this plays out.

I find it significant that in the OP on the front page they have chosen to use the picture of the straight Marine Brandon Raub and not the picture of Brandon Bizarro. Perhaps Adam Kokesh is in on the set up and this is why he was granted the interview. It is likely that he will be able to sell it to the major networks if the story develops "legs".

Of course this is just one view of this situation and everyone must decide for themselves what to believe.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)


Please stop mind f'ing me man... Are you on the "good guys" side???

I support Ron Paul for President.

Since I am from Scotland I can't vote for him but I do believe it is important at this time for America to have a President who will not plunge us into a world war and who will turn that country around onto a more righteous path. This can have only a good effect on the rest of the world.

I am also in favour of all the rights and freedoms given to us by our Creator and enumerated in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

I believe Brandon Raub is a smart man who has created a situation to draw attention to the evils of the US government that he has seen close up as a US Marine. He is willing to sacrifice his freedom to do this and for that I believe he is to be admired. I hope he is successful in his efforts so that the American People become more aware of the kind of government they have and the lies they have been told by them.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)

I agree David.

I think Brandon is the real thing and I think the out of control NDAA enforcement is real as well.

But, I think there are also VERY REAL forces of psychological warfare are being played out in the United States to steer public opinion. I really wanted to believe in Adam K. but he gives me reasons to question his true intent. He is very sensationalistic, has not done anything legally to combat the things he is fighting about (to my knowledge), he was a former U.S. Marine in Civil Affairs (which are no strangers to psych. warfare and and misleading people.)

When Adam puts down Ron Paul for asking supporters to be respectful, I wonder if it is to insight supporters to be unruly in Tampa at the Convention. This would be a favorable display for those who want to portrait RP supporters as crazy and anarchists.

So...I wonder what side AK is playing on...

I also agree with your analysis Matt.

Sorry but Adam can go to

Sorry but Adam can go to hell. You people need to realize that he isn't well respected among many of us vets. I support some of his views regarding liberty, and the idea of being free but he has been caught lying about certain military issues. He isn't someone you should push.

"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty."

Adam vs maturity

This veteran agrees. Adam is too immature and acts like a child when he has that mic in his hand. I really did try but he's just not my style.

this issue is NOT about "style"

I am questioning the whole event of snagging this former Marine...and I question Adam K. It will be interesting to see how this unfolds...

An unfortunate side effect

of drug use is that it can retard the maturation process. This happens when people medicate negative emotions in order to feel happy instead of having to grow emotionally and spiritually in order to conquer them.


Have you ever had alcohol, caffeine, sugar (one of the most addictive and toxic substances known to man!), corn syrup, MSG, prescription drugs, fluoride, genetically modified soy product or other food type, aspartame.... ever had any of that? They also happen to "retard the maturation process".... people use them to "medicate negative emotions in order to feel happy instead of having to grow emotionally and spiritually" all the time..... and your point is?

"I don't know if the world is full of smart men bluffing
or imbeciles who mean it."


Something I haven't seen anyone mention

A "ping" like this on your record (going to a psych ward) in alot of states will keep you from being able to own firearms. It's another way to disarm you.

Thanks for the front page Michael

Mad at Adam

He's been bashing Ron Paul lately. I unsubcribed to him. Still it was a good interview. Hope lots of people out there are watching what's happening to Brandon.


What's he been saying about RP?

I know Adam is pretty non religious if not atheist. That's all right, some of the best people I've known have been atheists.

I think Adam and folks like Gerald Celente lose patience with RP for being too nice to enemies. Being nice to your enemies is a Christian idea, and it may not fly with Adam.

But I sort of agree with Adam. There's a time to get angry, and not bend over and take it. That time is now. The time for being loving is over.

That's more or less my opinion.

Also Adam may be sick and tired of the neo con infiltration of RP's campaign. Jesse Benton being the obvious main example.

Just spoke with Brandon's Sheriff.

2nd conversation in two days.

* He said TDO's (temp detention order) are enforced about once every one to two weeks in his county.
* He said the district court would be able to tell who asked for the TDO and the magistrate who signed it. Maybe go to their website, he said.
* He asked me, "What if the police didn't pick him up and take him to the hospital, and Brandon went out and killed somebody this week?" I said, so that's what pre-crime arrests are and EVERYBODY including you and me could be picked up. He agreed, but it didn't seem to alter his conviction that what they're doing is right and "by the book."
* He said, "In my opinion, they're doing everything the right way and if he's determined to be healthy, then he'll be released." I told him it's a good sign they're letting him speak with the media, and they're not drugging him up.
* I asked him, "If they don't let him go in the next few days and they do NOT charge him with any crime, will you investigate and defend his rights?" He said he would. He said he values defending the rights of his citizens.

We then hung up, and I called Richard Mack to tell him this story. Richard said that they are violating his rights if they don't let him go. He said, "What happens on Day 31? What if they decide to just keep him detained with no charge or trial?" That's where were at now, he said. You cannot just arrest somebody and hold them because YOU think they are dangerous. They have to commit a crime, THEN you arrest them.

He said this Sheriff must be careful about focusing too much on CYA'ing himself, at the expense of focusing on defending the Constitutional rights of his citizens.

I agree. I've seen too many cops make arrests to cover their butts. They wanted to pass the buck and have "somebody else" certify the situation, so THEY wouldn't be liable. It's called choosing to what is in YOUR best interest, instead of doing what's right. This is an epidemic problem in our police state country.

What I would like to

What I would like to see happen:

Hypocrite CFR members Hillary Clinton & Condi Rice have the gall to go around the planet "spreading democracies", talking about repressive fascist regimes, plight of political dissidents Ai Weiwei, Aung San Suu Kyi in China, Burma (Myanmar) etc.

I would like the story of Brandon Raub to be so publicized around the globe that the tables are turned. Basically I would like Aung San Suu Kyi and Ai Weiwei to put US Government on the spot. Let "Nobel Prize winner" Obama be exposed as the exhibit, the puppet of bankers & military industrial complex that he is.

Immoral funding of Military Industrial Complex by Federal Reserve and US taxation system must stop!!!! End illegal/unconstitutional wars! Preserve US currency!

well, I think the rest of the world is already very aware . . .

of the fact that *our* leaders are criminals.

It is Americans who do not (by and large) know it yet--

But yes--

I have felt the same way--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Brandon's mother is amazing.

So are his younger sister and brother. They are right on with their knowledge and views. This is going to open a window on TRUTH that the government does not want to have seen or heard.

With a Communist Fascist regime the highest treason is to speak against the government. But in America it is the First Amendment and freedom of speech is the law.

So right here, right now, we choose the American Constitution, or we cower in fear before the Fascist regime trying to rule the world. We are asked to take a stand with Brandon and his family, the military vets, and Ron Paul who has taken a stand for his lifetime. What happens in America, freedom or tyranny, will be mirrored in the world.
