Activists are rallying to secure the release of former Marine and broadcaster Adam Kokesh, who was arrested by police in Philadelphia on Saturday during a speech he gave at a marijuana legalization protest.

As the video documenting Kokesh’s arrest proves, he was not smoking marijuana when he was snatched by cops nor did he resist arrest. Kokesh’s “crime” seems to amount to no more than exercising his right to free speech under the First Amendment.

However, Kokesh still remains interned in a federal jailhouse in Philadelphia under charges of resisting arrest. He has not been charged with drug possession or use of drugs.

Kokesh’s abduction by Philadelphia cops underscores the fact that Americans are now being kidnapped and temporarily disappeared into the prison system for the egregious crime of engaging in constitutionally protected free speech.

==================================================================

As Paul Joseph Watson notes: "Although Kokesh is likely to have an initial hearing today, there is no guarantee that he will be released."

So, time to muster. Let the servants know:

UPDATE: The video below from a supporter confirms that Kokesh has been charged with felony assault of an officer and that he will not be allowed bail because of “a possibility of a history of excessive drug use.”

http://youtu.be/gmsyrNwSfG4

Incarcerated political activist Adam Kokesh, arrested by police for exercising his First Amendment rights during a pro-marijuana legalization protest on Saturday, is set to be charged with “assaulting a federal police officer,” despite the fact that the video of the incident shows him not resisting arrest.

“I’ve received word from a reputable but not official contact that Adam will be charged with assaulting a federal officer under 18 USC 111,” writes supporter and activist George Donnelly. “This is a very serious charge. Take note that this is not official information yet. The source however is very reputable.”

Kokesh was kidnapped by Philadelphia police as he gave a keynote speech on Saturday. The former Marine was not smoking or in possession of any drugs when he was arrested.

Color of Law Thugs Kidnap Adam Kokesh

Radio host Adam Kokesh was arrested Saturday in Philadelphia during a Smoke Down Prohibition rally.

As witnessed in footage of the event filmed by fellow activists, Kokesh appears to have been arrested for the victimless crime of exercising his First Amendment right to free speech.

The talk radio host recently garnered national attention when he 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.

On the Sunday broadcast of the Alex Jones Show, Alex spoke to one of Kokesh's crew members, Lucas, who stated the feds haven't yet disclosed where Adam is being detained.

"Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it's realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy." - Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul

Either Adam Kokesh a hero of liberty

or the cynical side of me is thinking its either to give him a pass on the armed DC march or to hype him up heading into the march to give him street cred in the liberty movement. Its like the wearechange crowd always running into powerfeul poeple every 5 sec.

Please don't down vote me, I keep an open mind always questioning everything I see and support Kokesh but not with blind loyalty.

or the third option, the

or the third option, the otherside showing their true colours and what we are dealing with, the enemy with in, the, "manipulated", sense of misplaced anger

but i dont disuade your points, i think they have merit

Sigh

In Athens, Georgia the people meant business and corruption met its match... pissed off, armed freedom loving people that showed up with purpose. All these protests that have corrupt police state thugs violating rights and pushing people around tossing them in jail end in failure. Why? Because they lack a bunch of pissed off, armed freedom loving people. With freedom comes responsibility. If people aren't responsible enough to end tyrannical acts wielding the 2nd Amendment then you lose freedom. We all want change by peaceful means, but be honest with yourselves. When tyrants are running rampant and making the 18th century British look like school boys, it's time to walk the talk. I've always argued a good indicator of a just war is when you personally have that gut feeling that you feel obligated to risk your life for your country. Not solely for your country, but for your family and their well being. We can play Internet warrior all day long, but it's pretty clear through recent decades that peaceful protest has steered it's course. Cite Ghandi all you want, I'll point to the founders, and the people of Athens. It's time to stop living in fear, stop following the 'we're making progress' carrot on the stick, and start realizing that the best way to restoring the constitution is to get mad, get armed and show them we are damn serious about our once beloved country.

Liberty: Too big to fail

typo

Sorry meant Athens, Tennessee. Was thinking college football for some reason.

Liberty: Too big to fail

You are right.

I won't cause harm to another but I won't cower from harm done to me. I am ashamed of the fact that when the Salvation Army lawyer threatened me with physical harm for exposing the fact that one of their churches was stealing from people then reporting them falsely for sexually assaulting their own children I backed down.

What am I afraid of? La Crosse Wisconsin police?

Pandacentricism will be our downfall.

I am also sorry for not investigating the death...

of the La Crosse Salvation Army's Major's wife who died in her sleep during the height of the investigation.

Pandacentricism will be our downfall.

you right

poeple are always drawing the line in the sand, when the line is reached they say ok this is it, not beyond this new line, when the line is reached you find yourself sitting in a concentration camp.

So...

Who all wants to file a Habeas Corpus on Adams behalf, that would force the feds to put up or shut up. A federal habeas corpus could still take 2 weeks though. State and local is only 3 days.

A writ of Habeas Corpus requires a court of law...

and a court of law requires government. But AnCapMercenary wants to destroy government and habeas corpus because in his anarcho-fantasy land, he thinks most people will voluntarily comply with the fabled Non-Aggression Principle. So if we just get rid of all evil government, there'll be no need for something as silly as a writ of habeas corpus. Right? Free Willy! Free Tibet! Free Adam! A free round of anarchism for everybody! Anarcho-ignorance is bliss!

Adam Kokesh is one of my heros.

More phony anarcho-concern for the 1st Amendment

AnCapMercenary's hypocrisy is off the charts. But like Obama's hypocrisy, ancap hypocrisy is just as popular, and DP is nothing more than a popularity contest for people who haven't matured beyond high school. That's why Obama's minions and ancaps have a lot in common, i.e., they can't handle rejection so they have to lie about who and what they really are.

If you want the truth about the ancap definition of 1st Amendment rights, just look at the freedom of speech permitted by ancaps who run Mexican drug cartels, mafia organizations, etc....say the wrong thing and your head will be chopped off. Ain't anarcho-barbarism great!

LOL!!! I give up! I cry uncle! You win! You win!!!

You got me; you win: you really are more delusionally clueless than the entire DailyPaul membership x 1,000,000,000 rounds of Bernanke's QE x Nth degree, combined! You won that race, solid, fair and self-evidently square!

LOL!!!

I mean really, dude: is that what passes for verbal sewage for you these days, Mark? Gotta say, you disappoint me with your z-grade opener.

Alas, be that as it may, it's too late in the Monday, and I've already satiated my daily imbecile bemusement quota for the day, elsewhere, and I'm out of any kind word-smithery, nor have any patience for your collectivist Trotskyite ass (though figuratively and metaphorically, deathly shiny as it maybe), today.

Ach so, meine liebe Deutsche Drei Reich Kinde, for the love of God, until you can learn to deploy/comprehend rudimentary literacy skills beyond the neocon equivalent of a graduate-school, which would be the 3rd grade in normal dog yrs sheeple yrs, and when you do finish reading the Code of Hammurabi homework assignment I gave you, then talk, umkay?

While I'd love to keep chucking the Kibble Bits and Bits to my favorite neurologically challenged, precocious 69yr old insensate primate pet, but your "anarchic barbarism" kindergartener charade does get a bit boring for the 0.0000000001% of my neurons that find you endearing, let alone entertaining.

So, while I can be charitable, I'm gonna have to give you a FU adieu, and let you simply enjoy your overspun neuroses, all by your lonesome today.

Now, you can go back to speaking to yourself in the mirror. Because that, is as much dickishness rise as you're gonna get out of me, today. Gotta save some for your... LOL.

Now, FO closet neocon Commie, shoo doggie, shoo.

You've already satiated your...

daily imbecile bemusement quota for the day? You set the bar awfully low cause that quota is filled each time you stumble through your anarcho-house of mirrors. I'm almost surprised you take my bait, I guess anarcho-barbarians can't resist a morsel of raw bloody meat. But I must admit, your vain attempts to pass yourself off as a member of civil society are always entertaining. For example, I mean really dude, lol, lol, you talk really cool for someone still in high school.

I would venture to guess that anyone here with more than two brain cells is already laughing at you. please leave quickly before you miss the short-bus again.

Just so you know... spin your comments, sling your ignorance. I'll anxiously await your reply so I can laugh even further.

Ok, I was going to write a response

You sound just like one of Obama's minions, anyone who tells the truth about ancaps or Obama is an uncalled for meanie. I must meditate on the Non-Aggression Principle. Oops! I forgot, the Non-Aggression Principle only exists in the Land of Oz, a.k.a., Anarcho-Fantasy Island. Look boss, de plane, de plane. Here comes the new anarcho-boss, same as the old boss, minus the cloak of civility.

Karl Marx himself said that the endgame of communism was total anarchy.

If you're an anarchist, you're a Marxist and many don't even know it.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

heh... so because Marx used

heh... so because Marx used the word anarchism to define something that isn't even remotely similar to what voluntaryists call anarchism, no one but Marxists can use the word?

wut

No, not really.

No, not really.

You're saying that Ron Paul and Murray Rothbard are Marxists? Laughable. Not to mention you have a very, very poor understanding of Marxism.

It's interesting that DP anarchists boldly claim...

Ron Paul as one of their own. Meanwhile, Ron Paul never admits to being an anarchist while campaigning for president. Question to anarchists: Why doesn't RP admit to being an anarchist on the campaign trail? Could it be that no one would vote for him other than a tiny minority of anarcho-barbarians?

So, if RP is an anarchist, and is willing to lie to further the anarcho-barbarian cause, what does that say about anarchists? The logical conclusion is they're a bunch of liars who can't be honest about their agenda. But at least they can upvote each others mindless drivel and deceive themselves into believing they're popular.

Call me Mr. Obvious but,

who here thinks Adam will still be behind bars on July 4th?

I heard Adam will be going in

I heard Adam will be going in front of another judge on Thursday. We should rally again for him then.
