Adam Kokesh Exposed: Open Carry March On Washington Is A Trap!


Part One of Two

Much has been said recently about Anarcho-capitalist activist Adam Kokesh, who has promised to lead an Open Carry march of 10,000 locked and loaded demonstrators on the United States Capitol of Washington D.C. on the 4th of July. On this episode of The Truth Is Viral, Tim Brown, Editor-in-Chief of, delves into Kokesh's unsavory past, and his even more unsavory friends; scumbags ranging from hateful Code Pink activist Cindy Sheehan to the terrorists of Hamas and Hezbollah.

Many have compared this march to the Battle of Lexington and Concord, where history records that the "Shot heard 'round the world" began the Revolutionary War; those people need to crack a history book, because Kokesh's march on the nation's Capitol bears absolutely no resemblance to the first battle of the American Revolution. Many more are frustrated that the numerous, and obviously criminal, scandals embroiling the Obama Administration have not yet ended his failed Presidency and are ready to take the law into their own hands; to start a new Revolution.

With a recent poll showing that nearly one-third of American voters expect that they will have to take up arms to take back the reigns of power from a federal government gone insane, many of those people have just been waiting for someone to lead them. Adam Kokesh wants to be that man. This is a frightening thought.

By his own admission Kokesh suffers from PTSD so severe that he has trouble handling large crowds; not a trait one would expect to find in a military commander. Another trait displayed by Kokesh that is anathema to any true Patriot is his support of terrorist groups Hamas and Hezbollah - Enemies of the United States - and radical anti-war activists including Iraq Veterans Against the War and Code Pink, that tried to deface the Vietnam War Memorial, an act of vandalism Kokesh himself attempted to participate in before the group was stopped by Honorable Vietnam Veterans at the 2007 Gathering of Eagles. Kokesh also counts the Occupy Movement, funded extensively by anti-American Jewish billionaire George Soros, as his allies.

In addition to U.S. State Department-listed terrorist organizations Hamas and Hezbollah, Kokesh also has extensive ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhood and al-Qaeda are two sides of the same coin; one the political wing, the other the military. The organization, which states publicly that their goal is the overthrow of the United States from within, has thoroughly infiltrated the Obama administration, helping to cause his foreign policy of toppling stable Middle-eastern governments in favor of theocracies led by the Muslim Brotherhood to come to fruition.

Finally, as shown on his personal Facebook page, Adam Kokesh lists "Obama for America" as an employer. Assuming he gets out of jail in time to lead this Open Carry march, is there any better reason not to follow this man on the 4th of July? Other than the fact that one shot from an anxious Patriot or an agent provocateur would start a bloodbath and give Obama all the excuse he needs to implement Martial Law that is.

The Truth Is Viral does NOT support Adam Kokesh or his ill-advised and poorly though-out plan to stage an "armed revolt" in Washington D.C. on the 4th of July; in fact, TTiV urges everyone to stay as far away from the event as possible. It could very easily turn ugly.

A bloodbath: "If they fight, there will be a bloodbath; if they surrender, then they will be charged with a felony. Guess what felons can't own? Guns. There is ZERO upside to this march. Kokesh could undo the hard work of REAL 2nd Amendment activists in a single morning. In case folks have forgotten, WE WON! Obama's gun grab went down in flames, and we did it legally."

Nothing I have seen in

Nothing I have seen in numerous past viewings of Adam's videos and speeches has given me any indication that Adam is not sincere or righteous. I don't agree with every word out of Adam's mouth, but most. I understand that a real armed march on DC could end up very bad and lead to many bad things for the Liberty movement.

The most important aspect of the build up to the date of this operation is to make visual to our government employees, that we are dead serious in our intent to stop the Tyranny of the federal government that's putting us on the road to national destruction and hardship, and we're not going to take it much longer.

Perhaps the groups intending to march should have armed practice marches in local towns on weekends leading up to the march date as part of the psychological operation.

On the actual date of the march, have all marchers carry plywood AR-15 cutouts of rifles to march with. Make this announcement quietly to marchers and disclose the only thing that will be carried by marchers that 4th of July day will be the plywood AR-15 cutouts painted black and can have customized designs. Make the plywood fake firearms announcement public in a press release just days before. Video all marchers to confirm they are not carrying lethal weapons as evidence in case anything happens. This demonstration can be framed as a readiness Drill, and could add thousands in numbers of marchers.

This is just my get out of jail free idea, saves face, and nobody gets killed this time.

Didn't you already say all that below?

Why post the same thing twice?

I bet 10,000 FRNs that the

I bet 10,000 FRNs that the people cheer leading this "demonstration" will not even attend it.

They will sit back on their couches and wave their flags while posting on this website.

When the march turns bad......and it will....they will cry for all the people arrested and probably shot.

The world wont know anything about it.

The nation wont do anything about it.

The people wont rise up in anger.

It will just bring more oppression for veterans and lawfully armed citizens.

This march is a bad idea and will only bring more tyranny, not freedom.

This thread is just a opposing view of all you people who will not even GO to the march.

So many cowards, monday quarterbacks, and message board bullies on here.

obvious hit piece

what did he do to you, pee in your cheerios?

This pure disinformation.

A total waste of time.

A steaming, smelly pile of fresh-dropped s-h-i-t.

How do you know?

I mean that as in HOW do you know. Not as in how do YOU know.

I really want to know HOW you know.

Do Bears ...

... discern shit talk in the forest ?

'For the trees' ... we see friends who walk the walk like Cindy Sheehan ( 'hateful' ? ).

Learning more

"Despite agreeing to stand as the Socialist Party USA's vice presidential nominee for the 2012 elections, the party's national convention voted on October 15, 2011, to block her candidacy, on the official grounds that she isn't a member of the party.[61] The nomination went to Alejandro Mendoza, of Texas."

"Sheehan ran on a platform of single-payer health care,"

I do not care for those 2 things.

I don't know much about Cindy Sheehan

I do not know her personally. I know her son was killed in Iraq and that she ran for vice-president with Roseanne Barr.
"Controversy arose when she sang "The Star-Spangled Banner" off-key at a 1990 nationally aired baseball game, followed by grabbing her crotch and spitting."

I don't have much respect for Roseanne Barr.

Assessment Ain't Over 'til The Fat Lady Spits

It's her job to not be dainty.
To my view, Barr's willingness to provoke attention on behalf of real issues is heroic.
I choose to view her gesture as symbolic of the full package of her ballsy personality:

Her grasp of the real issues sounds more on key than anything I hear from polite, conventional personalities in the political field.
Don't let one small thing block your view ( the trees). Put it all into the equation. Add it all up.
2 + 2 = 4 ... 4 balls, they walk !

They might walk, but I ain't following that Socialism Talk:

"According to its main website, PFP "is committed to socialism, democracy, ecology, feminism and racial equality"[6] and tries "to build a mass based socialist party throughout the country."[6] It is a strong advocate of environmentalism, aboriginal rights, rights to sexuality, health care, abortion, education, housing, employment and a socialist-run economy.[6]"

"A variety of people joined the PFP in its first election. Bob Avakian was a spokesman for the party in the San Francisco Area, where artists and activists such as Emmy Lou Packard and Byron Randall were involved. The New York Peace and Freedom Party consisted of a fractious coalition of competing Marxist groups, along with libertarians led by economist Murray Rothbard. Libertarians briefly competed for the leadership in the California branch of the party and several of their candidates for public office were nominated, but left following a split at the 1974 convention where the California Secretary of State ruled that the convention that voted to make the party socialist was the official party in California."

Being A Follower ...

... was never for real activists.

Set your own stride.

Of course you little totalitarian slime bag

Of course you do.

You want to know HOW.

Sorry. Not going to divulge that information to you.

I can't help but ask

Who's the punk in you profile picture?

sharkhearted's picture

And I can not help but ask....

At least that "punk" is thoughtful enough to post his pic so ppl will know who they are are talking to.

I am trying to humanize these blog posts so, even if some of my words are in error and need retracting (see my apology to Bear below), at least ppl will know the individual has a name (I'm Chris)...and a FACE.

Where's your name and face???

Must be something in the air.

After reading your rude original comments and looking at your angry faced picture, as I perceived it that is, I felt the need to make a backhanded statement of rude proportions of my own. Silly me. Just goes to show that it is a daily battle to suppress the impulses of the flesh. I apologize. You can call me John but I'm still just anothernobody.

sharkhearted's picture

Nice to meet ya, John.

Blogs can be so impersonal. That's the downside....because for all they do to connect people of like minds...the "once-removed" nature of words and no pictures.

[BTW...I never get called "angry-faced". If you look closer you will see that I have sincere eyes LOL. I just don't like to smile for my pics. ]

I would rather call you John...rather than another nobody.

Sharkhearted, I am sincerely sorry,

Please accept my apology. I won't bother you any more. But this morning, I just wanted you to know that I am sorry.

sharkhearted's picture

I am sincerely sorry, as well. My conscience was bothering me.

Am glad you contacted me because I wanted to email you personally through the Daily Paul but it looks like you turned off your email contact function.

I sincerely hope you get this response.

Sorry for dropping the f-bomb. We are all passionate we have that in common.

For all my hot-headedness...I am a good guy. I can tell you are a (VERY) good woman.

I hate....HATE this blog interface as it makes savages out of all of us as there is no face-to-face discourse.

My name is Chris, by the way. Sent you a friend invite. FRIENDS.

Have a meaningful and blessed Memorial Day.

Remember the fallen,

Thank you Chris,

my conscience was bothering me this morning as well. There are these verses :

Matt 5:23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; 24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.

In otherwords, God doesn't want to see the likes of my worship when my brother can't even stand me.

As innocent as I wanted to tell myself that I was, it was me that inspired the f bomb.

Thank you for forgiving me. I feel so much better, tears formed in my eyes. I am a nice person too, or I try to be for the most part, and probably a bit too sensitive.

My husband would not stand for a picture of me, so the best I could do was our first child :) I do have a picture of me and her, and he forbid that I use it. I was a lot younger then. I am 50 now. My name is Cindy.

When I joined the DP I had just woken up and I was literally scared and sort of in shock. I was too afraid to use my name. Now I don't care so much. I do still like being bear. It was a little more fun before I used the picture of her though, because most of the time people thought I was a guy and I had the fun of letting them know I am a she.

Really, I am still abit frightened about the future in the sense that there are enemies at home and enemies abroad, and they may be the same enemies, and those enemies know how to bring down a country from within. I quite honestly don't know who can be trusted, but I did trust Ron Paul. I am a moral conservative, so Adam Kokesh scares me a bit. But I understand how "moral conservativism" has been used to steal liberty as well. I did not understand that until I began to wake up.

I have received quite abit of education here.

Thank you for making me a friend. I haven't placed and friends in my account. I was too afraid to at first, and then I figured it was nobody's business who my friends are. You can see, I am strange, and I don't mind saying so :)

Nice piece you wrote for Memorial Day. I voted it up, but did not comment because I told you I would not bother you.

And now I have told you more than you ever wanted to know. But thanks, Chris, for saying you are sorry too and for taking me as your friend. I still have much to learn.


sharkhearted's picture

WOW. And thank you for your heartfelt response.

There are other scriptural quotes which convicted me too, such as the proverb about harsh words delivered are like bows from an arrow...they can not be retracted.

Wisdom from the ages.

Then there is the maxim: "Don't let the sun go down upon your wrath."

All apropos to me and made me feel so bad I was trying to seek you out but could not email you so I was delighted when you posted me with that nice apology.

Where Adam Kokesh is concerned....another thing that might scare you (but sometimes we have to face our fears!) that AK is an atheist. (But then again, so was Ayn Rand).

The bottom line as Christians (even though I am more of a libertine and an Episcopalian)...the ULTIMATE maxim is to "JUDGE NOT."

With Adam will know him by his fruits....and I watched how he has treated people in interviews in the the Occupy Wall Street phenomena of Oct 2011 (when I first started watching him)...and he was SOCRATES incarnate. He never disrespected people. Always gave them a voice. Much like Jesus Christ, himself...who often brilliantly employed the Socratic Method.

Adam Kokesh...for all of his rough edges...was the guy that turned this ex-neocon onto the ideas of Ron Paul.

You shouldn't be scared of libertines and semi-anarchists like Adam and me. Rather...the real ones to stand up to and fight...are the statist totalitarian authoritarian LIAR "leaders" that use any ruse, democrat or republican, communist or fascist, collectivist or statist, to advance their agenda.

Adam Kokesh is more like you than you may realize. He, like you, wants his freedom...NOT to be infringed by any one else.

OH...and BTW...Adam is a veteran of the Iraq War and led a march of Veterans for Ron Paul where they marched in DC, turned their back on Obama, and stood in silent salute for all of the Veteran suicide victims.

THIS IS POWERFUL. WATCH with earphones. That march of Veterans was organized by the young Adam Kokesh. Towards the end...the videographer fuses the Veterans March with the ending scene of the groundbreaking anti-fascism film, V for Vendetta.

Please don't be afraid. Adam is on YOUR side.

Memorial Day blessings to you....and thanks for the upvote. Please, bother me any time!

These guys are disgusting!

I'm sure they could care less what happens to Adam Kokesh, let alone any of the others. Instead of trying to be helpful in coming up with ways that can help Adam Kokesh and his group of freedom patriots, he sits there and condemns them! A---ss!

I'm a little dense

when you say these guys, are you talking about me?

Maybe I am alot dense.

I am a little totalitarian slime bag?

No, I am not. Why do you insist on calling me names?

That Was Out Of Line ...

... and the worst kind of shit talk to occur on a forum of this caliber and especially in response to your non offensive question. I'm sorry you were treated so rudely.
In a revolution there are unfortunately always rowdies who clamor for tar and feather.


I joined this forum when there was a r3VOLution.

Times change and time tells.

That makes two of us

Ron Paul would never approve of this march.

I'd take a bullet for Ron Paul.

I hit save on my comment below before I remember I wanted to

ask about this:

On your blogspot, I think I noticed an Israeli flag and something about sounding pro-Israel. I have been raised to have a high regard for Israel. I am a Christian, a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ as my one and only means thru His shed blood granting my access to the Father.

That being said, I have seen a lot of anti-Zionist posts here in the last several months and I am trying to get that all figured out in my mind.
