VIDEO: Adam Kokesh Presser; May 24, 2013 UPDATE: Calls for OpenCarry March @ ALL 50 State Capitols! Kokesh OUT of Jail!

Philadelphia Activists Arrested, Framed and Denied Bail for Speaking Out in Favor of Marijuana Legalization

Infowars.com
May 23, 2013

(Philadelphia, PA, May 22, 2013) — Comedy-activist troupe “The Panic Hour” and activist advocate Shield Mutual are supporting a rally Thursday May 23, 2013 at the James A. Byrne federal courthouse at 601 Market St. in Philadelphia that will demand the immediate and unconditional release of activists Adam Kokesh and N.A. Poe from federal prison.

More than two hundred friends and allies of Kokesh and Poe are expected at the rally, which runs concurrent with Kokesh and Poe’s 1:30PM detention hearing.

At 2:30PM, representatives of Kokesh and Poe will hold a press conference on the steps of the Byrne courthouse to address these events.

Kokesh and Poe were arrested on Saturday, May 18, 2013 while speaking to a permitted marijuana legalization rally at Independence Mall National Historic Park in center city Philadelphia, in a space specifically designated for free speech. They are being framed on felony charges of assaulting a federal officer, despite overwhelming video footage to the contrary.

“They just came after Adam [Kokesh] and N.A. Poe, the organizer of Smokedown – the only two there out of hundreds present who were taken into custody,” said Michael Salvi, an observer of the rally.

At a preliminary hearing in front of US Magistrate Judge Thomas J. Rueter in the Byrne courthouse on Monday, May 20, 2013, Kokesh and Poe were denied bail.

“We are not deterred. We will continue to fight to get our friends removed from federal custody and continue to organize to legalize cannabis in Pennsylvania,” said Vanessa Maria, producer of “The Panic Hour.”

Adam Kokesh Calls on American Revolutionary Army to March on 50 State Capitols

(Philadelphia, PA, May 24, 2013)— Political prisoner and activist Adam Kokesh has released a statement from inside the Philadelphia federal prison about his planned July 4th, 2013 Open Carry March on Washington, DC. The statement was read by comedian and activist N.A. Poe, until recently a fellow prisoner of Kokesh’s, today Friday, May 24 at 1PM in front of the Philadelphia federal prison.

What follows is Kokesh’s complete and unabridged statement.

“When a government has repeatedly and deliberately failed to follow its own laws, violated the fundamental human rights of its citizens, threatened the sanctity of a free press, created institutions intended to eliminate privacy of communication, waged war at the behest of special interest that threatens the public safety, killed hundreds of children with drone strikes, imprisoned and destroyed the lives of countless individuals for victimless crimes, stifled economic opportunity to maintain the dominance of the financial elite, stolen from the people through an absurd system of taxation and inflation, sold future generations into debt slavery, and abused its power to suppress political opposition, it is unfit to exist and it becomes the duty of the people to alter or abolish that government by whatever means necessary to secure liberty and ensure peace.

“A new American revolution is long overdue. This revolution has been brewing in the hearts and minds of the people for many years, but this Independence Day, it shall take a new form as the American Revolutionary Army will march on each state capital to demand that the governors of these 50 states immediately initiate the process of an orderly dissolution of the federal government through secession and reclamation of federally held property. Should one whole year from this July 4th pass while the crimes of this government are allowed to continue, we may have passed the point at which non-violent revolution becomes impossible.

“The time to sit idly by has passed. To remain neutral is to be complicit, just doing your job is not an excuse, and the line in the sand has been drawn between the people, and the criminals in Washington, D.C. While some timid souls will say that it is too early, that we can solve this problem through democratic means provided by government, that current levels of taxation are reasonable for the services provided, and that the crimes of this government are merely a tolerable nuisance, it may already be too late.

“While there is risk in drastic action, the greater danger lies in allowing this government to continue unchallenged. So if you are content with the status quo, stay home, get fat, watch the fireworks from a safe distance, and allow this Independence Day to pass like any other. But if you see as we see, and feel as we feel, we will see you on the front lines of freedom on July 4th, 2013 for this, The Final American Revolution.”

Signed, Adam Kokesh, May 23, 2013 from a cage in the Philadelphia federal prison.

Adam Kokesh

Kokesh remains in a federal prison in Philadelphia on what many of his supporters claim are trumped up charges of assaulting a police officer and has been denied bail.

The former Iraq war veteran was already planning to lead a controversial armed march on Washington DC on Independence Day, but has rapidly expanded the scope of his plans, calling on an, “American Revolutionary Army (that) will march on each state capital to demand that the governors of these 50 states immediately initiate the process of an orderly dissolution of the federal government through secession and reclamation of federally held property.”

DC police responded to Kokesh’s plan for an armed march by vowing to arrest Kokesh and any other armed demonstrators who take part.

"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

Bump and Link

Please consider judging how the case (attack) on Adam Kokesh proceeds in light of the following information:

http://www.talkshoe.com/talkshoe/web/audioPop.jsp?episodeId=...

It may be true that a large percentage of information flowing in human existence on Earth is invented, produced, and maintained so as to cover up the crimes perpetrated by a few examples of inhuman beings, and to render the many victims powerless to defend against such crimes (crimes made legal).

If there is no remedy for Adam Kokesh, then the supposed "government" in question is shown, as in "brought into light," as a crime in progress, for all who care to see that fact demonstrated in that way by the criminals currently perpetrating this particular crime.

Remember Waco, and what happened to those survivors who failed to obey the command to burn to death after they were tortured for months, and after they were experimented on, those survivors failed to obey that command to burn to death, and they were not shot, so they were then sent to die in a warehouse; like things placed on a shelf.

So, it may be a good idea to know better, it seems to me.

Joe

Want to find another source

Want to find another source of corruption? Look at the judge. The authorities wouldn't risk questionable charges unless the judge presiding over the case was purchased in advance. At a minimum, demand a change of venue and start digging for dirt on the judge.

Thanks for the update. The

Thanks for the update. The terrorist government employee war on We the People will not be stood for much longer.

Just a question

If he were to be found guilty of the things he is accused of, will he then lose his second amendment right ?

I'm not sure,

Well, all our libertarian-centric 'Constitutional Heritage'-sound natural rights arguments aside, as far as the govt terrorists are concerned, IF they can, they WILL. That's my go-to assumption about their modus operandi, anyway.

But to be more technically legally specific, I believe it depends on the State of one's legal residence. In case of Adam Kokesh: Virginia. Which, luckily, unlike CA, MD, IL, CT, NJ, HI, or NY, I believe he'll have much easier time having his 2nd Amendment rights restored, when his case/charges are dismissed, cleared up, or declared "not guilty" in court.

But even if restored later

If they are not there july 4 th, he can´t do any armed march, right ?

Maybe that was the goal with this whole thing, but what do I know...

wolfe's picture

He's not a convicted felon, yet...

So unless he voluntarily subjects himself to OR restrictions, he would retain his rights.

However, if they have made OR restrictions a requirement for his release, then either A) He won't have the right to carry a firearm due to OR, or B) He won't be released.

The Philosophy Of Liberty -
http://www.thephilosophyofliberty.com/

yeah, I think so, too: according to Kokesh's lawyer Donnelly

"However, if they have made OR restrictions a requirement for his release, then either A) He won't have the right to carry a firearm due to OR, or B) He won't be released."

your above 'conditional/proviso-postulation is exactly what they said.

I believe it was either Lucas Jewell or Darryl Young, one of his producers who said that once Adam was in Feds' cage, Adam REFUSED to answer any questions about whether he owns/does, or does not own/does not do: guns, drugs, etc. Even though, anyone who visits his AVTM youtube channel can clearly see the answer for themselves.

LOL.

Na, these bastards know all that; they just want him on their record saying A, B, C, so that they can later use it against him with their favorite go to BS conviction-getter: You LIED to the Feds!

Like OMG! OMG! OMFG!

Yeah, this, coming from those whose motto is "We have to commit crimes, to 'stop' crimes!"

The State-terrorist actors' de facto raison d'tre is to lie, in order to 'catch' innocent Americans; in fact, their profession requires them to, and their commissar dictator overlords make certain that they have an incentive, to lie:

In my brief weak moments of nihilism, in some sick sense: I soooo cannot wait for the currency collapse to come... de facto making their entire 'just-us' system paradigm irrelevant by drying up their funds.

http://www.dailypaul.com/comment/2308809

though of course, even in a post currency collapse SHTF, there's no guarantee that in the current Statism-religion dominated Amerikana, what follows that would be any different, nor is there any guarantee that the sheeple would ever wake up from the current delusion of feeling the 'need' for State-enforcer 'protection' racket.

wolfe's picture

Hmmm...

The website is down so wasn't able to see details. So let me ask if I understand this correctly.

For 50$/yr dues, I get potential legal protection from the police state should they do something to violate my rights? How significant are the limitations, etc?

Seriously, I will sign up immediately. My lawyers are awesome, but not cheap, and if this even settled one case for me in the next 10 years, it would be more than worth it as backup insurance.

(Honestly, $50 is too cheap... so cheap as to seem too good to be true. It costs me 2k$ just to initiate action with any of my existing attorneys).

The Philosophy Of Liberty -
http://www.thephilosophyofliberty.com/

yeah: don't know if the .MP3 link is working for you, but

if you you listen to the interview, it seems clear that Shield Mutual service is literally, just getting off the ground.

There are already plenty of non-agorist/libertarian-leaning monthly or annual payment-based legal services from traffic tickets to post-lawful lethal self-defense shooting encounters legal defense that, like mutual funds, they leverage large numbers of customers to keep costs down.

Granted, ALL mutual funds are corporatist in nature, but the point being, at least as far as numeric theory goes, as you know, the basis behind it is to 'pool' larger, amassed resources and leverage numbers; well, with payment-'pooled' legal services, like insurance, calculation is that not everyone's gonna use the more costlier end of the services every single time, so members who do need the more serious services, can be afforded it, at their low monthly and/or annual fee.

Well, at least in theory.

Of course, that is assuming that you already have an actual customer base to pool; seeing as how their website seems to still be in construction stage, and the fact that in Ernie's interview, George Donnelly stated that he, as an activist, has also been arrested, and in fact held in the very same detention center that Adam's being blackbagged in, all of which makes Shield Mutual seem more grassroots than some multi-millionaire/billionaire former partner in a law firm who 'saw the light' and decided to help out libertarian activists and their causes.

That said, the service is obviously new, so, I'm withholding any judgment until I see how George Donnelly/Shield Mutual handles Adam Kokesh's legal situation to gauge whether he's good at what he does, or not. Also think the $50 only covers general pre-lim. services; I'm sure they'll charge more for prolonged court battles.

But, all that matters now, is if they're able to keep Adam & co out of jail, permanently, keep him safe, and expunge his records, if at all possible, and like John Whitehead, the powerhouse lawyer from the Rutherford Institute who got Adam's buddy Marine Brandon Raub out of jail/psych-detention: sue the frak out the Feds, for this utterly obvious 1st Amendment Constitutional Civil Rights violation!

http://youtu.be/bRxb5pQB_T0

Looks like the way Donnelly's describing Adam's situation, the Fed govt terrorists are stipulating that for Adam to be "released on his own recognizance," he MUST disclose if how many firearms he owns, whether he use drugs, if not, he'll remain in jail until court-date, and/or they'll ankle-braclet him, even if he were to be released.

It's clear they targeted Adam, with the specific intent of kidnapping and holding him, at least beyond July 4th, as to prevent his publicly announced armed march @ DC, on the 'Independence' Day.

Pray the boy comes out okay, and the scums have NOT medicated brain-torture-zombified him with psychotropics, as they seem to be doing more and more of that to political prisoners, lately, just like how EVERY SINGLE despotic terrorist State tyrannies have always done.

LOL: actually, scratch that; that's double redundant: ALL govts are terroristic! It doesn't 'need' to be 'despotic.' It is by nature, already despotic!

LOL...er.. .o(

Cause if I pay that $50, you're telling me, as a non-public personality, that they're gonna fly some people out to hold a rally or what? They're gonna harass the switchboard where you're locked? Yeah, that'll work. It just isn't too possible. "leadership, pr, fundraising" all for $50 a year. Really?

I'm definately skeptical at that price as well...

Especially since I have had numerous legal bills that have ran higher than $5K for simple open and shut cases.

But I spent more on a lap dance (lol), so would be worth it just to try it out. Assuming of course that all credentials are valid (and I will check prior).

On a side note, nothing beats that personal touch though. My attorney will get me bailed out at the drop of hat with nothing but my word, at the most insane hours which is priceless.

I know

maybe their new business model will outsource these services from India. "Hello this is Jagdish. I understand you have detained one of our members. I will hold back on the chicken vindaloo until you release him. Thank you."

Wait

They still haven't released him? This is illegal.

illegal, indeed.

if these terrorist motherfrakkers could get away openly murdering Boston false flag patsies, along with their friends, and arresting FBI agents coincidentally 'conveniently' all dying, they can and will do ANYTHING to Adam, and make up any story they want.

it'd be one thing if we actually had a critical-thinking populace at large, but we don't and the MSM whores will cover it all up for the State and their dutiful brain-dead State-actors.

MSM might as well just park their cameras in front of Govt buildings, because the only idiots who watch and believe it are those who still delude govt is trustworthy, about anything: unfortunately, well-meaning senior citizens who drew up in an era where they actually still believed in govt, and baby boomer children soccer moms who are now having a knee-jerk reaction to their hippie parents who distrusted the State, to now openly worshiping it.

It's like, why does MSM even bother with the pretense of an 'independent' third-party media, anymore?? geopolitically alert news hounds all know the score: they're just Pravda of Your, not to mention, Baghdad Bob for whichever regime's in power.

This

Should be all over the news. I see all over the place today about this lady questioning Obama about killing Americans with drones. Well, all this is happening because of NDAA. A man just got thrown in jail for expressing freedom of speech.

Free N.A Poe & Adam Kokesh Rally - Livestream at 1pm EST 5/23/13

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

Thursday May 23, 2013 at 1:30pm EST, Philly activist/comedian N.A. Poe, and activist Adam Kokesh are scheduled for a detention hearing at the Federal Courthouse located at 601 Market St Philadelphia, PA.

If you're not within reasonable driving distance, or can't make it down, we've got you covered over here at Mike Salvi's World. We'll begin livestreaming at 1pm EST (slight chance we'll start earlier, follow me on twitter and USTREAM to get notified when we're live). Our stream will be outside, NOT inside the courtroom. This will be an interactive broadcast so join the discussion on USTREAM chat. Since we'll be right on the frontlines, we'll be reporting first hand accounts of what is going on, and what is to come.

why not?

I missed the live broadcast; listening to podcast download of

today's AJ show; he played part of the live press conference on his radio show, today.

as to why no presence at the actual press conf.?

my guess?

simple lack of man-power. he is based in Austin TX after all. suppose BiDondi could've headed down to Philly from his Providence, RI homebase. But not sure if he's currently working on another project or not.

besides, AJ links to any citizen-journalist who puts up videos of their own coverage of various events, at AJ's own websites, helping them go viral, faster.

that said, going forward, while AJ may already be planning it, I would definitely like to see more nationwide, hell, international contributors and correspondents with proper per-piece pay structure in place. but all of that cost money; while AJ is the king of Alt. media, his resources are obviously limited.

I think with the current state of media and ubiquity of cheap tech/video production equipment from cameras to editing softwares, it's far more efficient and dynamic to have an ocean of affiliated independent citizen journalists who have an efficient platform/method to get news TO InfoWars, to make any given news, and/or event coverages go viral, faster, IMHO.

Vegas odds-

Kokesh has a 6.5 chance against the feds...not a gambler, don't know really what this means except that some people will bet on any
thing. LOL

inside court room civilian says Adam would have been released

today had he agreed to the States demands...he refused them. Not clear yet what demands the state asked for... heard that they wanted him to give up his guns...wouldn't give up his address... nor would he agree to stay away from speaking at rallies!

Poe released.

Adam goes to court again Tuesday.

"If you want something you've never had before, you have to do something you've never done before." Debra Medina

good for Adam if that is true

all of that is intimidation and irrelevant. It shows what kind of people we have running all aspects of this country.

Don't give in!
