I can personally testify that he hadn't even smoked yet... everyone please phone bomb the philly police and jail phone lines and demand adam be released amd able to make contact with us... other protesters were actually smoking and released after arrest but adam was taken away in a white chevy suburban... phone bomb them now!!! --- Brother Lucas

This is nuts,

what did he do to get arrested in the first place? Did he wander out of a free speech zone or something?

call is fake

sounds like kermit talking to gonzo.

pause the video at :36 seconds

You can see the cop tuck a white substance down the back of adams pants.

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.

I apologize for misleading..

the :36 mark is in a secondary video, not the one posted above.

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.

It looks like

someone's sticking something down the back of his pants at 1:02 (in the 2nd video), I didn't see anything at :36.

there's nothing going on

at 36s.

On the Duty of Civil Disobedience

All men recognize the right of revolution; that is, the right to refuse allegiance to, and to resist, the government, when its tyranny or its inefficiency are great and unendurable. But almost all say that such is not the case now. But such was the case, they think, in the Revolution of '75. If one were to tell me that this was a bad government because it taxed certain foreign commodities brought to its ports, it is most probable that I should not make an ado about it, for I can do without them. All machines have their friction; and possibly this does enough good to counter-balance the evil. At any rate, it is a great evil to make a stir about it. But when the friction comes to have its machine, and oppression and robbery are organized, I say, let us not have such a machine any longer. In other words, when a sixth of the population of a nation which has undertaken to be the refuge of liberty are slaves, and a whole country is unjustly overrun and conquered by a foreign army, and subjected to military law, I think that it is not too soon for honest men to rebel and revolutionize. What makes this duty the more urgent is that fact that the country so overrun is not our own, but ours is the invading army.

I really can't find anything to add to this, in context of Adam's misfortune.

(But, sure: emphasis mine)

I'm not an Adam fan, but I'm not a supporter of phony arrests or speech suppression either.

Notice - this arrest is far more effective than Adam's idea of marching on Washington, because Adam didn't do anything. This is how you should do it. This right here. When there is absolutely no excuse or appearance of doing anything wrong.

A War Veteran in jail for a victimless crime!

He didn't resist arrest, what a folly charge! It took decades/generations for 'officials' to start illegally asserting their 'authority' the way they have been allowed to do so often.

That video among many others are proof that sitting back and doing nothing is detrimental to the cause of liberty.

I still have high hopes for the REAL law enforcement officers, such as Sheriff Mack and the 54 Colorado Sheriffs that take their oaths seriously.

Bail Adam out! He should be able to be bailed out before Monday.

Will they try

To keep him until July 5th. ? Or will the conditions of his bond be that he be barred from any Federal Property...... Which will have the same effect as keeping him until July 5th, being that ALL of DC is Federal ?

Just a thought.

With that many people in the crowd, I don't think they should have let them take Adam. They should have surrounded the police peacefully, and refused to move.

There is no legal reason for people to give up someone to the police without a lawful arrest warrant signed by a judge being presented to them. In fact, there is a patriotic duty not to.

AnCapMercenary found that it was the park police who did this.

Park Police act like Nazis, and they already know Kokesh from the Jefferson Memorial dancing event.

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

Why is he in a federal jail?

Sad how the government treats its WAR VETERANS

This is very sad to see, how the authorities treat its WAR VETERANS, especially when they (Government/authorities) were the ones preaching that we are over there (at war) to protect our freedoms.
You cops should be ashamed to arrest Adam, he is one of those that fought for you, and protected you from the terrorists, don't you remember?
Messing with Adam is like messing with the whole country.
You could had "stand down" and as long as no one got hurt, kept your distance, let Adam and his protesters exercise what he was fighting for...the right to protest against the government.
To protest is more American than you putting on your uniform and arrest innocent people every day. Leave Adam alone.
One of these days you GUNG HO cops are going to push the "hot" buttom a little too far, and will wish you had not done it.
I'm afraid that day is soon approaching at a rapid pace too.
You ought to be glad the other protesters "allowed" you the freedom to do what you did. Leave Adam alone....

The Usual Lie Of Resisting Arrest.: Their Word Against His..

The judge will believe the cops or park police because Holder and Obama will ensure the judge gets the word from on high..

Kokesh will probably be put into an institution for the criminally insane and drugged with truth serum and then murdered..

He will never be let out in my opinion..He is too dangerous to the emperor in DC...

sharkhearted's picture

Yeah but videographic evidence holds some water

And there is a video of his arrest...which he CLEARLY was not resisting.

And no...he will NOT "disappear" Soviet-style to some institution.

OVER MY DEAD BODY. And many others as well.

Yeah this could turn into another Brandon Raub incident...but it will work out as fascist conspirators are like the Stormtroopers in Star Wars. They are pretty dumb.

And in this age of information....they will lose as cameras record their every move.

Truth will win out.

UPDATE: I called the same number.

I spoke with a woman who all she could tell me that "he will be arraigned on Monday"....before she hung up on me for asking her what are his charges or on what probable cause did they arrest him?

Fascism has descended upon America. We all are at risk.

This is a major part of the government employee war on We the People. Not enough real crime to prosecute for the massive numbers of law enforcement employees due the super surveillance police state. In combination with high personal gun ownership numbers and with the general publics ownership of billions of personal audio/video recording devices recording all government employee activity, there is too little real crime for all the government employees to make all of them worth having around. Now they have to invent crimes against We the People to make those government employees feel they are worthwhile having around.

Repeating AnCapMercenary's IMPORTANT info here:

"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)"

Wonder if this is to prevent Adam from leading the "Open Carry".

March. Don't be surprised if they delay his hearing several times.

Most of These Slave To The Nanny Statist Cops Have No

integrity. They are weak pathetic cowards. The force of law and a gun make them seem powerful, but they are not. The system cultivates these mindless zombies. It was like that in ancient times as well. When everything goes south these cowards with badges and with their guns will also fall victim. That's the way it has to be.

Some of us will make it, most won't. Only the most moral have always survived the great battles. The most moral are generally fearless and that is a big advantage over those that are truly cowards.

The bible says, "nothing new under the sun" Civilizations rise and fall..

Most of you know the process - First the people are noble,rugged and hard working. Over a given period of time, mostly through too much affluence and apathy they soon degenerate and evolve into cowardly, weak and effeminate swine, fit for the slaughter.

We must rise up from the pig troughs, clean ourselves up if we really believe we can restore the republic..I hope it is not too late..
