Welcome to the USA-SSR. Adam Kokesh being illegally detained in federal prison under fake charges.

[UPDATE: If you want to give money to AK legal defense fund visit www.freeadam.net ]

Marine Iraq-War Veteran and liberty-minded journalist and activist Adam Kokesh is being held in a federal penitentiary in Philadelphia without bail for allegedly--allegedly--grabbing the arm ("felony assault of a federal officer") while the Park Police moved in to make arrests on a legalize cannabis demonstration where many decided to light up in protest.

Adam did not light up, nor was he in possession of any cannabis at the time of his arrest by the feds...but he had just finished giving the keynote speech.

Now, for anybody who knows well of Adam, he is a very smart man and knows how to be complicit in arrests and also knows NEVER to make aggressive moves toward the cops, such as grabbing their arm.

From video accounts of Adam not resisting arrest, and from eyewitness accounts I am 99% sure that Adam would not make such a stupid move like grabbing the arm of a police officer. Who in their right mind would???

And so the judge in the hearing this morning denied him bail because he was "at risk of doing too many drugs."

WTF?? Never heard that one before.

This has all the hallmarks of a frame-up, and is very similar to the tactics used in the old Soviet Union and Nazi Germany. Dissidents there were regularly framed with false or set-up charges...to take them out of circulation. Or the dissident would be "declared" (trans. "framed") "insane" by some government-paid psychiatrist, thus disappearing the targeted individual to a mental institution, forever.

To "arbitrarily arrest and detain citizens" is step number 6 in Naomi Wolf's 10 steps to the closing down of a society in her book The End of America.

It's happening. Everyone should be concerned.

Just because Adam Kokesh is so very outspoken and sometimes a little outrageous in his tactics, does not mean that is why the Feds targeted him. If they can come after Adam...they can come after any of us!

Welcome to the United States of the Third Reich.

Welcome to the USA---SSR. Wake up, America!!

ADDENDUM: Two posters, "PHREEDOM" and "MaxK", added some brilliant legal comments into this thread and I am reposting them here as citations and quotes:

------------------

****Below are quotes taken from a larger post in this thread by PHREEDOM****

(I encourage you to page down and read the whole thing. It blows the lid off of the criminal enterprise our court systems have become.)

"Who is the member of the governed alleging actual injury? Without this there is no valid cause of action and the "Court" lacks jurisdiction in the subject matter. The Plaintiff in the record claims to be the "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA". Adam has the right to face his accuser but the only one who will face him are ones who claim no liability for their own actions under the colorable name UNITED STATES OF AMERICA."

"Our laws state that just power/powers of Justice are derived from the consent of the governed not consent of the Government. Consent of the Governed is required for the very purpose of the Court maintaining complete and total impartiality in the process of fair justice. The Courts and attorneys have failed to realize this simple fact not out of ignorance but out of a guilty contempt of their binding prohibitions in their mens rea driven acts of exerting unlawful control over another. The men who voluntarily took the oath and contracted to bind themselves under the Constitution founded in our organic law are the ones in breach of duty and the men claiming to be "officers" have given Adam a valid cause of action against them."

"The Judge should be seeking the elements of a valid cause of action and seeking to maintain the Powers of Justice being derived directly from the people through an accusation that one accepts liability for. They don't want to do this because they know they will lose all their power...."

****Below quote from a post in this thread by MaxK*****

"Also, holding someone's arm that pushed you to the ground to maintain balance - which doesn't appear to actually have occurred, not only is not an actionable (and real) injury or rises to the level of assault by any stretch of wicked imagination, but under the circumstances, should result in a multitude of charges against the plaintiff. Filing false charges to cause harm and deny someone rights is a crime under a bunch of different statues."

"It is the kangaroo court system that is currently in this country that is causing most of our problems."

Let's see how this plays out

The idea that the Feds took out the guy who was planning the armed march might inspire a lot more people than the march itself would have. Potentially this could be a big win for the liberty movement if enough outrage is generated by the public and in the media. Though I would think the media will just ignore the story and this no outrage will be generated by anyone other than the usual (the liberty movement crowd).

July 4 Open Carry March Changed

from open carry of guns to open carry of ganja. In the event of inclement weather, the march will be changed to a smoke-in.

I found what appears

to be the complaint filed against Kokesh:

http://freeadam.net/2013/05/20/adam-kokesh-accused-felony/96...

Title 18:

Sec. 111. Assaulting, resisting, or impeding certain officers or
employees

yep... and it's beyond

yep...

and it's beyond bizarre for a charge of 'assaulting an officer' to be levied when Adam was minding his own business. If there is no other charge against Adam, why the hell were these officers going after him to begin with? It's not like he just walked over and sucker punched the officer.

“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.”
― Ron Paul

I can't wait to see where this goes

Will they hold Adam indefinitely? Will they hold him until after the march is supposed to happen? This arrest should be a rallying cry for all of us. We can no longer pretend that there is true free speech in this country.

“Although it was the middle of winter, I finally realized that, within me, summer was inextinguishable.” — Albert Camus

Who is the member of the governed

alleging actual injury? Without this there is no valid cause of action and the "Court" lacks jurisdiction in the subject matter. The Plaintiff in the record claims to be the "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA". Adam has the right to face his accuser but the only one who will face him are ones who claim no liability for their own actions under the colorable name UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

Our laws state that just power/powers of Justice are derived from the consent of the governed not consent of the Government. Consent of the Governed is required for the very purpose of the Court maintaining complete and total impartiality in the process of fair justice. The Courts and attorneys have failed to realize this simple fact not out of ignorance but out of a guilty contempt of their binding prohibitions in their mens rea driven acts of exerting unlawful control over another. The men who voluntarily took the oath and contracted to bind themselves under the Constitution founded in our organic law are the ones in breach of duty and the men claiming to be "officers" have given Adam a valid cause of action against them.

The Judge should be seeking the elements of a valid cause of action and seeking to maintain the Powers of Justice being derived directly from the people through an accusation that one accepts liability for. They don't want to do this because they know they will lose all their power.

IMHO We as individual men and women now awakening need to thoroughly identify the reasons why the Powers of Justice can logically and lawfully only come from the Governed in the form of an accusation that one is accepting liability for. If we aren't willing to accept liability for our accusations and ensure that this liability is maintained throughout our courts as the only way to have a valid cause of action, then we are unknowingly handing all power over to them and enabling the fertile ground for tyranny to sow its roots. Without the identifiable chain of liability sourced to the man or woman making the claim that the Government is acting on behalf of the Law of Agency is broken and pecuniary advantage is enabled for the corruption of Law enforcement and Courts . Accusations without accusers violates one's right to face their accuser. The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is a legal fiction. Whether it is a corporation or not really doesn't matter because each individual man or woman claiming to be under capacity of their oath are either operating within the confines of lawful contractually binding duties or not. If they breach prohibitions their voluntarily contracted with We the People for then the man or woman can be held liable for their Breach of Duty. So if the are actually saying UNITED STATES OF AMERICA but do not actually mean the same entity under and bound by the US Constitution then they are committing blatant fraud under color of law. To deal with them I have found that one needs to understand what is actually happening in these scenarios. The officer is the corporate veil with the limited liability capacity, the man/woman inside the veil is liable for their actions that are outside the scope of the veil. They enable their corporate veil to be pierced with Breach of Duty accusations when they perform colorable actions without the direct consent and request of the Governed. If we can realize this fact as self evident we can begin to change our entire system through the courts with our juries and properly remove ALL code from applicability to the people because of the fact that one is always presumed innocent, one has a right to face their accuser and just powers (powers of justice) are derived from consent of the Governed. If we practiced this the Law of Agency would be maintained, our organic common laws would be followed and our courts would remain impartial because the corruption of pecuniary advantages has been disabled. IMHO this is the pinpoint failure of Americans to understand our own laws. I hope we all realize this self-evident fact soon because the opportunity for restoration is growing short.

The most powerful Law of Nature is Time. It is finite and we all will run out of it. Use this Law to your advantage, for it offers you infinite possibilities...

This is the most reasoned as of yet analysis of the situation.

Can we truly know Adam's heart and mind? No. Can we know his actions and tactics? Yes. Through the video evidence.

History is the spectrum through which we view the present, and the picture isn't pretty...

Pandacentricism will be our downfall.

Have you ever

Danced with the devil in the cold moon light? Adam, made himself a target and the Feds willingly obliged him. Announcing he was for all intensive purposes going to " invade " DC with that which is legal GUNS, but they say is not legal. And the THEY are in truth nothing but brutes and thugs with GUNS and Judges, once they run out of coperations from those they abuse...us.. They must either resort to brutality as they have so easily shown herein, or they must turn tail and run.
Adam was foolish, he dared them to step up and stop him, so they did. All Adam had to do to avoid this was to keep a low profile for a few, and live to fight another day, that day he had promised is now in jerpordy because Adam is a loose cannon, and Adam is not self disciplined, and Adam is not self governing.
We saw these characteristics during the Election, we've seen them since, Adam will resurface, sooner rather than later, but not until after the Fifth of July this year, or conditions upon a sooner release will stipulate he's to not step foot on Federal property...and all of DC is Federal Property by constitutional law.
I hope Adam grows up because of all of this, it's time to put childish things behind. He could be a great leader with his charisma, but as it is he's a leader but he's neither great nor respectable by the greater weight of those who are self governed for Adam brings harm to himself and to others in the things he does.

Please forgive my blunt and direct post, I know many here hold Adam in esteem, I say hold Liberty in esteem, hold God in esteem and discern the manner of the character of those men you might follow before getting in line behind them. I find no pleasure in Adams plight, but I know where the responsibility lies and shall not cast it upon those who are not at cause when it might have been avoided.
All this loss, for some tetrahydracabinol, foolishness.

that's all good bro except for the fact...

that Adam didn't assault anybody and he never lit up any marijuana and he essentially has been kidnapped...other than that you make a fair point.

My issue, obviously

Isnt that Adam broke any laws, he did NOT.
I spoke to the GREATER issue of accountability and responsibility he has as a spokesman for Liberty. One doesn't plan a " statement making " march of ideals in freedom , such as the " open carry " march, and then neglect to watch ones backside when all along ones been proclaiming the illegality, the brutish nature of those who ones going to protest towards. I'm upset with Adam because what he did was foolhardy, it caused Liberty to lose face, and what might have made a great statement worldwide might now NOT take place ( the march ) because Adam did not cover his own backside.

I must have a much higher expectation than most upon anyone I follow, perhaps that's why I follow so few, nay rather NONE now on earth saving Ron Paul has ever garnered my respect to the point where I personally invested my time, work, and personal fortune in his behalf.

And an even greater issue then must be raised, what manner of freedoms do unruly men create?

You see, the thing is, some

You see, the thing is, some of us take the march, and the unlawful arrest, as two completly different issues, personally i think your not gonna get an overall affect of liberty, if you let the "little" things slide, the whole, in my line of thinking, consisting of many of the little things, both good and bad

In a sense, yes

That comes with having leadership responsabilitys.
It's a matter of PRIORITIES, which was greater?

I know most can't see it, which is why most are not leadership material.

Would you also recommend MLK not visit a church because the threat he might be arrested before a big march?

Apples to apples my friend.

Comparing a pot fest to a church is like comparing dog poo to a T-bone steak, they just don't equate.

And Martin Luther did go underground so to speak prior to Selma, research it. In that he wasn't in the public eye, he knew the value of the greater thing, and was not EGO driven.

Why are government employees

Why are government employees allowed to illegally terrorize Americans? Is it because we do nothing about it?

Adam has committed no crimes. We got it all on f-ing film you ass wipe.

Adams crime was going to that protest in the first place.

I know he's innocent, that's very plain to see, they know it too, do you think they care?

Adam acted DUMB, for he should, as I said have laid low. The fact that he put a target upon his own back by challenging the block bully ( the Real a-wipes ) by planning the march, it had to have been known to Adam that he should watch his step, to not be exposed, to keep the focus on DC.

It's true, I watched the Video, Adam did nothing wrong, except....except...being there in the first place.

I used to smoke a QP a month, Afghan Black/ Gold stamp hash, Kaui Bud so sticky if you held it in your hand you couldn't get it off, couldn't even roll a joint it was so resin. But I put childish things behind me, the only use I'd have for ganja these days is medical, and I don't. Haven't for twenty years, I could care less who does....but it's a unimportant issue in the scheme of establishing liberty in the context of things that must be done.
Adam should have been more careful, Adam could use some sound advisors who care more about the important points to make....a open carry march into DC in liberty than the " after the big ones are done things ", like pot.
It's called getting ones priorities straight, I have some small experience in having both wrong priorities and now corrected priorities myself, and the wrong ones cost me dearly just like Adams are going to cost him.

That's life, that's how men learn, it's called the school of hard knocks.

I see disagreeing with you, even in common sense sets you off, a quick tempered man is soon lonely.

Steadfast

Have you ever been arrested, gone to jail, and had a gun pointed at you because of possessing pot? Have you ever faced losing your children, your possessions, or your home because of possessing pot?

I grew up riding in trucks with shotgun racks in the rear window, and have owned guns all my life. Not once has the government come to take those away from me or mandated that I stop using them. In fact in both my current and former states of residence, one being very red and the other blue politically, concealed carry is legal. If you own a 270 rifle no one calls Social Services, but try growing a little plant.

Maybe other people don't share your priorities.

Yes.

Yes I have been arrested, I've even been to court for pot, I've been to court when I had done absolutely nothing illegal too, and convicted. And I've been to jail, a few times.
My old pot and booze habit nearly killed me, so now I do neither at all. I learned from my past, I grew up.

I understand that there is a differing level to accountability: that is to say discerning the difference in the matter of the level of the importance of a thing is higher for those who have been granted leadership, to whom much is given, much is required. What I've been trying to point out, and failing to get across is there is a difference between you and I, and Adam.
That difference is the amount of personal responsibility we must each take for all that we do. What you and I do effects us and our family's; what Adam does in the name of liberty effects ALL who call upon that name and their families. You and I effect what 2-100 max, Adam effects thousands to millions. Therefore he needs to be aware of this fact.
I didn't say legalizing pot wasn't a liberty issue, what I said was that compared to the 2nd amendment it is a relatively small matter comparatively. It needs to be addressed, but not at the cost of the greater.
Personally I hope pot gets legalized, not because I'll ever smoke again, but to get Governments out of killing people in the manipulations of it like they do now. That and I know pot is much less harmful than Booze, not just because of personal usage of both, but because I work in recovery helping people who were addicted like I was, I've been at this game for almost twenty years, 39 when I add my using years in.

So yes I really do get it, but I can see the bigger picture, because I'm a leader I feel my accountability weight upon my every word, my every thought, my every deed. It's not supposed to be about me, and if it ever becomes such, then I need to step aside and let other more able people step up to do what I am no longer able to do for reasons of my own ego.
No ones perfect, Adam made a poor choice, he'll learn.

Our Government on the other hand has discovered that they can defraud us and get wealthy doing so, and since they are unwilling to change we shall upon a certain day have to change it for them, to save them from themselves as well as us from them. But before we can ever do that, if we have strong desire for success, we must each one of us look inwards and purge from ourselves those traits that could harm others, we must be worthy of being our own governors, we are not yet worthy so let us get on with the task at hand.
