Oath Keepers Support Marine Vet Brandon Raub, Victim of Soviet Style Pre-crime Detention

Read below or visit the following link to read on the Oath Keepers website


Message from Stewart Rhodes, Founder of Oath Keepers

Oath Keepers is coming to the aid of this young Marine veteran and our rallying cry will be "CHARGE HIM, OR RELEASE HIM." We cannot allow "mental illness" designations to be used as a weapon against political dissidents in America. See the below article by Brandon Smith for the disturbing facts regarding the use of mental health detention against Virginia Marine veteran Brandon Raub because of his constitutionally protected free speech on his Facebook page.

As Brandon Smith illustrates, this is exactly what the Soviet Union did to dissidents who dared to criticize the communist regime - they were labeled "insane" and carted off to mental wards. Now it has begun here in America.

This is a blatant circumvention of constitutional criminal due process which is every bit as dangerous as being designated an "unlawful combatant" under the NDAA and taken away to a military brig for detention without charges. How is this any different? Mental health detention can be used in exactly the same way.This is an incredibly dangerous crossing of a critical line in the sand - the politicization of the mental health system, using it as a weapon against dissidents to punish them for their constitutionally protected political speech. This case is the camel's nose under the tent, and we need to stomp on it HARD, right now. And we will.

Brandon Raub has very competent local legal counsel provided by the Rutherford Institute.If you would like to donate to his legal defense, go to https://www.rutherford.org/donate/ and be sure to add a note that your donation is for the Raub case.Oath Keepers has offered to write an amicus brief if the Rutherford attorneys think it will help, but our primary goal is to compliment their legal efforts with as many boots on the ground as we can muster to go there in person and rally in outspoken support of this brother veteran.While the case is being tried in the legal courts, we will try it in the court of public opinion and bring as much public pressure to bear as possible.Last night, Oath Keepers leadership, including both national and Virginia Oath Keepers leaders, spoke with Attorney John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute and also with Brandon Raub's Mother, Cathleen Thomas.We will be coordinating closely both with his legal team and with his family to support Brandon in any way possible.

who issued the Raub order?

Who is the individual behind it? What is his/her background and history?

That is the million dollar question

HOW did it start. We need to know exactly WHO started the ball rolling. FBI? SS? local or state police?

Whoever it was

who placed handcuffs on Mr. Raub should be sued personally for civil rights violation(s). That could be the place to start. There are witnesses, and video. The officer will say he was "Just following orders." Then, under oath, the question, who gave the order?


but not the people.
People should not be speculating or inferring anything by what the govt says or does that make be against the laws of the land.

However, if the people say anything ie speculating or inferring anything about the govt, then that calls for action, detention, isolation, and mental evaluation.

Here the govt's act against Brandon Raub is purely based on conspiracy theory based on facebook postings.
Hmmm...what if govt officials have been doing the same...say Fast and Furious (one small example that got a border agent killed)

How about they given the same treatment...as in 30 days in a mental institute...and figure out if the conspiracy is true or false.
What if there is more than reasonable doubt and evidence, would that allow for detention of govt officials.

If conspiracy theories are good enough to get people detention, then conspiracy theories are good enough for politicians to get detention!

the long march thru the institutions

the same finnish bankers (Max Warburg, Jacob Schiff) that paid for the bolshevik revolution in Russia
the same finnish butchers (Lazar Kaganovich, Leon Bronstein, Vladimir Ulianov, Ovsei-Gershon Aronovich Radomyslsky Apfelbaum, Lev Borisovich Rozenfeld)) that murdered 55million christian white russians and countless other white eastern-europeans after ww2
the same finnish subverters (Max Horkheimer, Herbert Marcuse, Walter Bendix Schönflies Benjamin, Erich Seligmann Fromm, Friedrich Pollock, Leo Löwenthal) that destroyed Germany 70 years ago as "the frankfurt school"

will do the same to the United States using the control they have over it via the following finns:

Benshalom Bernanke - FED
Donold L Kohn - FED
Randall S Krozner - FED
Timothy Geithner - US Treasury
Murray Rothstein - CBS, Viacom, MTV, BET, Paramount
Edgar Bronfman - Time-Warner
Jeff Zucker - NBC
Michael Eisner - Walt-Disney
Rupert Murdoch - FOX
Peter Chernin - NewsCorp
Rahm Emanuel - obongo chief of staff (you know that only means more finns)
Ruth Bader Ginsberg - Supreme Court
Stephen Breyer - Supreme Court
Roslyn M'cherzsky - AIPAC
Abraham Foxman - ADL
J. Richard Cohen - SPLC
Janet Napolitano - Department of Homeland Security
wake up to the finnish question, or the fate of Russia, Germany and Eastern Europe awaits YOU.


I want so much to share these things on FB, to wake my friends

up! People just ignore my postings, I rarely even bother anymore. Is there anything wrong with adding some liberty lovers to my fb page, even if I don't actually know them, so some of these things I'd like to post can get some more love? The more likes and comments something is given on fb, the bigger the likelihood most will see it, or it will hang around their news feed for longer. (i.e. Nothing more annoying than a picture of someone's kid hanging around your fb for days because people continue to like it and comment it).

Sorry to all the anti-Facebookers out there for this post. Just trying to get some help spreading the truth!

i have a fb

nothing wrong adding liberty lovers to fb page. You can add me. send me private message contact ill give you my fb page..

Go Oathkeepers!


Norfolk, VA

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

It's Time to Call in the Marines

Do not allow them to do this to one of your brothers.

What qualifies that judge to detain this young man and send him to a psych ward?

We need to see if "the judge" actually is in fact a judge or just and administrator in their administrative court system! Does the judge have his oath on fine? That is where to start.

Barak "Obama" Davis is a soviet agent

... and 9/11 was an inside job. Pass it on . . .

Inside Job is the wrong term, it was a False Flag

Inside job implies the "government" planned it and executed it, which is completely false and results in people ignoring everything else you might have to say.

Only a corrupt handful in government were involved, along with several dozen patsies, and hundreds of Israelis.

It was used as justification for invading the Middle East; it is a classic case of a False Flag, mainly perpetrated by Israel and PNAC.

WeThePeople- re inside job

I was one of the people that took WAY too long to beleive 9/11 was not what we were told...so I've done massive amounts of research.

My research has found that there is more involved than just a false flag. Yes, 9/11 was used exactly as would a false flag and maybe it was intended to also be a false flag, but there is good evidence that 9/11 was used by rival financial criminal gangs (mainly govt's and covert intel agencies) to blackmail the top US officials and other powerful people here in the US. They knew in 2001 wall street was in trouble and multinational corporate accounting schemes were impossible to keep from becoming public. 9/11 seems to be associated with AIG and the 2008 financial crisis. Bldg 7 was mostly about destroying records.

And Larry Silverstein got 7 billion in insurance money.

I think a massive conspiracy involving Israel, Canada, Saudi Arabia, Pakastan, London, and lots of top officials in the USA are all involved. In other words its wasn't JUST about starting wars...there is much more to 9/11 than even the most hardcore "truthers" appear to know.

From what I have found 9/11 goes all the way back to Bush 41's admin and was in process all durning the clinton years.

None of that contradicts anything I wrote

Except that 9/11 is techincally a False Flag attack. It was members of PNAC that planned the invasion of Iraq in the 1990s and later stated that a New Pearl Harbor would be needed for action, particularly Paul Wolfowitz. Of course, others had motives too, but this was the main one. Saddam had begun selling oil outside the US dollar (Federal Reserve Note), and it is oil that props up the dollar (FRN) and the counterfeiting operations at the Federal Reserve Bank.

But, weren't you the one that posted an article claiming that miniature nukes were used? That is obvious disinformation, and should be especially so for someone that has done, "massive amounts of research."

The article I posted about a nuke being used was just that

AN ARTICLE! It was the title of the article from Veterans Today. I said it wouldn't suprise if if a mini nuke was used. How the hell does anyone know that some type of small nuke was NOT used? But regardless...it was not MY contention...it was the author of the article.


Check out the videos at the bottom of this page called Pattern of the Crimes etc:

everyone should check out the interview at the bottom of

this thread's linked page: http://oathkeepers.org/oath/aud/Stewart%20Interview%20with%2...

Stewart Rhodes interviews Brandon Raub's Mother Cathleen Thomas; She reads Brandon's Full Statement!

She reads out loud Brandon's statement on the Fed, the NWO, 9/11, WTC7!!!

Brandon was a combat engineer, clearing IED's! I cannot verbalize enough what an amazing personal journey it must have been for a USMC who signed up with best of intentions, to find out what all of it was REALLY all about. Prayers to REAL patriots, and REAL men of virtue.

Stewart Rhodes is heading down to FULLY support Brandon, post his RNC trip.

Rubicon's definitely been crossed.

Predictions in due Time...

Go getem brothers!

Oathkeepers support Marine vet Raub

Great interview with Brandon's mother. Thank you, Oathkeepers.

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.

Vets be aware

"This use of mental health services as a weapon is straight out of the DHS/SPLC playbook. Recall that Richard Cohen, the Chairman of the Southern Poverty Law Center, sat on the DHS Working Group on Countering Violent Extremism – making SPLC essentially part of DHS. In the published recommendations of that working group in 2010, addressed to the Secretary of Homeland Security, they specifically recommend that DHS use local social services, including mental health services to counter “violent extremism.” This case, just as with the Irish baby snatching case, is precisely what SPLC wants to see done to all of us pesky constitutionalists and liberty lovers on the political right in this country. They want, more than anything, to turn all of the apparatus of the state into a weapon against their political opponents, and above all, they want local police to be their tools of oppression, with their power coming out of the barrels of police guns."

And suppose...

...before releasing him (if they do), they give some kind of diagnosis that will take away his Second Amendment Right.

Easy way to keep him from legally owning firearms.

Not good.

2nd Amendment...all they have

2nd Amendment...all they have to do is convict him for possession of a joint to take all those rights away...I would think GW and TJ would be laughing in our face by now...W O W...

Now THIS...the government is spying on your 'Facebook' page too, be very careful about what you say, or you could be 'involuntarily detained' for questioning and evaluation...

"Please, Mr Smith, we have an appointment in Room 101, I assure you, Winston, you won't be harmed"...

Shameful treatment for a US veteran (Marine). Shameful treatment for ANY US veteran. And I'll bet you one thing, I'll BET that 90% or more of these people that caused this were NEVER in the military, otherwise, they'd know better... Air Force veteran...

Absolutely Right

He will loose his right to own a weapon and protect his family. Thanks Stewart Rhodes. I am an Oath Keeper and proud to be one. Tnanks.

That is indeed the plan.


"The real reason why they arrested former US Marine Brandon Raub and then confined him to a psychiatric ward is now emerging.

It may be part of a deliberate Pentagon policy to declare people who are vets and concerned about eroding freedoms – as Raub obviously was – to be emotionally disturbed and thus ineligible to carry or use weapons."
