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

VIDEO: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LMQvEZLQ2BA

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 Freedomoutpost.com, 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. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/05/02/poll-armed-revoluti...

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.

I agree. Nothing I have seen

I agree. Nothing I have seen in numerous past viewings of Adams videos and speeches has given me any indication that Adam is not sincere or righteous. I don't agree with every word out of Adams 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 wooden and cardboard cutouts of rifles to march with. Make this announcement silently and disclose the only thing that will be carried by marchers that 4th of July day will be the cardboard cutouts. Make that announcement public just days before. Video all marchers to confirm they are not carrying lethal weapons as evidence in case anything happens. This is just my get out of jail free idea and saves face.

I'll give him a chance

mindfull that any one of us who DOESN'T take our safety and the safety of the communities we operate in really shouldn't be taken seriously as a leader.

Adam's communications and actions recently don't speak of lack of insight or consideration. THESE ARE PRETTY FREAKING SERIOUS AND HEAVY QUESTIONS.

When I lead our people I'm hyper aware, it's on me, I don't sleep right until everybody is home safe. If I don't have the authority and ability to do so I don't take the job.

I been turning down more jobs lately. More now than ever. And some folks who know what I do have been asking what is my position or WHAT IS CHOWHOUND GONNA DO?

Nothing on this one as stated.

Not only that but nobody asked Chowhound to do anything.

Not only that but Adam knows Chowhound and if he wanted our help he would have asked for it.

Not only that but I TRUST ADAM AS A MAN. He's not stupid and he won't put lives at risk gratuitously.

Not only that but I trust our soldiers who support him for various reasons among which are these guys are soldiers. They protect the people. They don't make war on the people, it's not what they do. But cause them to reflect deeply on their lives, their commitments and their priorities, this is designed to do.


There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.

Anyone who thinks Hezbollah

Anyone who thinks Hezbollah was wrong to kick Israel out of Lebanon is probably an anti Arab bigot.

Adam Kokesh lists "Obama for America" as employer on FB?

I don't have an account on FB, can anyone verify this?

Kokesh is not setting up a deliberate trap

though that's what it may morph into. He's just ex-military and has the militant attitude and spirit. The march gives me mixed feelings - on the one side, I'm tired of the inaction and calculated aversion to activism - well, I speak only for myself here. On the other hand, this march will probably end just with fines/arrests and more $ going to the gov't, etc. However, since the march was announced, that could also keep things orderly enough to be something of a success. Could simply result in a slap on the wrist since sheeple are more easy to control than armed protesters - the powers-that-be could co-opt other events more easily.


"The world has never known more oppressive governments or bigger governments than those which profess the cult of liberty." - Donald Sanborn

How do you know what Kokesh is or is not doing?

Bob Powell....whoever the hell you are

Let me say this as politely as I can:

Go copulate with yourself.

Adam is a TRUE patriot.

Adam was the one who first turned this ex-neocon guy (me), on to Ron Paul.

Take your COINTELPRO garbage (or whatever other twisted mind-f-u-c-k propaganda source you are from)...elsewhere.

Oh...and by the way....Code Pink (Medea) was just dragged out of Obama's speech yesterday because she challenged him on his drone war. Good for her...on all counts.

She is a bigger and better patriot than your sorry arse will ever be.

Crazy how some of our supposed "enemies" might be our friends....and VICE VERSA.

(Yeah, that's right....check my voting record...Reagan Bush Bush Dole Bush Bush McCain....and then write-in Paul in 2012). Ex neo-con here.

I WILL SAY IT AGAIN: Code Pink as well as Adam Kokesh...are bigger and better patriots than your sorry arse will ever be.

I Supported Ron Paul

when you were still in elementary school, and I was a journalist before you were ever born. I researched and set out my assertions, provided proof in the form of an interview, photographs, and video for this report.

What have you done for Liberty besides call me names? I've stood for Ron Paul and against Bush and Obama since 2007, putting out over a hundred videos in which I support 2nd Amendment rights and the Constitution.

I'M the one getting death threats from Liberal scumbags, MY children are being threatened with being burned to death in their beds, MY wife has been threratened to be gang-raped until she is dead by the Liberal pukes because I STAND FOR LIBERTY.

What have you done? Anybody threatening your family? For crying out loud, you don't even use your real name when you post, so why should I give a good hot damn about anything you have to say?


I'd take a bullet for Ron Paul.

sharkhearted's picture

Ummm....Elementary School?

I am pretty sure we are pretty much the same age...give or take a few years.

What have I done for Liberty? I was a Ron Paul Delegate all the way to the GOP Convention.

(And of course I will refrain from reciprocating and calling you a "coward".)

And good for you for standing for Liberty....VERY sorry to hear about the death threats to your children and your wife. I can't imagine how awful that would be.

I would defend you and your family to the death if necessary against such psychopaths.

All the best and peace. We are fighting the same war.

But you are wrong, wrong WRONG about Adam Kokesh.

Learn to understand that the Globalist forces that are trying to divide us...are using that Hegelian method very well.

The enemy of my enemy...is my friend.

"The enemy of my enemy...is my friend."

Do you support that adage?

This is the first time I remember seeing a Bob Powell post: http://www.dailypaul.com/250590/cia-murdered-reporters-daugh...


Skinheads are 'anti-government', but that doesn't mean I see them as friends or allies. They are just a different type of enemy.

Why was Adam Kokesh not allowed at Ron Paul's Tampa Rally?

If indeed Adam Kokesh is the True Patriot?

I heard this so called "true patriot," at least I think it was his words:

"F the Law, smoke it anyways?"

Those are the words of a Patriot? "F the Law"?

No, I think the words of a true patriot are Change the Law.

I think Ron Paul gave an example of a true patriot.

I think there is a bait ans switch going on here.

sharkhearted's picture

The words of Thomas Paine if he were alive today would be...

F-u-c-k the law.

Of course we are all read up on Bastiat The Law ( a brilliant work) so don't even go there.


(By the way...am I talking to a little foo-foo lap dog....or am I talking to a human being who is afraid to show his/her picture??)

BTW...Adam was the guy that first turned me on to Ron Paul and helped cleanse me of my neocon brainwashing.

Perhaps at that time, Adam was feeling a little rejected that the Ron Paul campaign (probably Jesse Benton) banned Adam (with threat of removal by force) from the day-long Ron Paul rally in Tampa.

(I was there for that rally as well as P.A.U.L.FEST and when I heard this I was LIVID.)

Adam may have an edge, and a couple screws loose, but he has balls of steel and the mind of Thomas Paine so I will forgive him of his occasional outbursts....heh nobodies perfect.

Adam is good in my book.

You? You seem like a whiner and one who wants to disinform...so....prove me wrong.

Norfolk, VA

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

I don't mean to be a whiner or a disinformer, I am kinda like a

lap dog, as in a gentle person, a female, at that. My motives are good, my questions are sincere. I am not informed enough to mis or disinform. But I do ask questions when flags go up in my own mind.

Kokesh has been a flag in my mind since before the election.

You say this "Adam may have an edge, and a couple screws loose"

That is enough said as far as I am concerned. He maybe courageous, but if he has a few loose screws, well, I would not follow him into battle, peaceful or not.


Really? He was encouraging everyone to speak that figure of speech as well as follow that figure of speech.

Disregard the law, smoke it anyways...

And as far as the figure of speech that you have so easily used towards me, a gentle person, a lady, well, OK.

"Perhaps at that time, Adam was feeling a little rejected that the Ron Paul campaign (probably Jesse Benton) banned Adam (with threat of removal by force) from the day-long Ron Paul rally in Tampa.

(I was there for that rally as well as P.A.U.L.FEST and when I heard this I was LIVID.)"

Really? Did you not care to find out the reason, Why?

"BTW...Adam was the guy that first turned me on to Ron Paul and helped cleanse me of my neocon brainwashing."

When I look back, Obama was the first to turn me on because after he was elected, I definitely knew something was wrong. I started listenting to talk radio, Beck, Hannity, the I found Dr. Monteith at Radio Liberty. He mentioned Ron PauL And that is how I found Ron Paul. Then I found the Daily Paul. I have learned a lot here.

I am not sure what Thomas Paine would say if he were alive today.


sharkhearted's picture

You are NAIVE

You should not post...on that which you do not understand.

Go back and read Frederic Bastiat's The Law ( number one recommendation of Dr. Paul)...and get back with me.

Norfolk, VA

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

I did read that not long ago.

I liked what I read. Maybe I am Naive, but to be honest, the thing that concerns me is that "we" are in the stages of being taken down as a country. In saying that I realize that our country is doing and has been doing wrong things. So I am not condoning those actions and I am not saying those actions should not be changed.

I think Ron Paul's plan was a long term plan. If that plan is working, would not those that are in control of our country prefer war and confusion to loosing thru an idea whose time has come?

sharkhearted's picture

Then if you are THAT CONCERNED...

Then you would lock arms with Adam Kokesh and the rest of us as opposed to waste your time endlessly posting on that which YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND.

This whole exercise here is a waste of time...and one that gives this ridiculous forum merit by exposure from number of posts.

My advice to you: Take in and learn much. Judge little. Your questions are naive and uninformed.

You weren't at the Ron Paul rally. I was. You weren't first introduced to RP by AK. I was.

Yeah...the guy has a serious edge...and maybe a couple screws loose....but who doesn't?

I have my own. ;-)

Regardless...I know it is SHOCKING to learn that the world is run by complete PSYCHOPATHS (Obama, the elder Bush, Dick Cheney, Hillary Clinton)....but such information is also POWER TO THE PEOPLE.

You see...psychopaths....have an achilles heel: They are immune to the truth.

My advice to you: LEARN TO SEEK THE TRUTH WHEREVER IT MAY BE FOUND....and no matter how corrupted the deliverer....whether from George Bush...or Barack Insane Obama....or Senator Ms. Lindsay Graham...or Senator Diane Frankenstein....OR.....OR.....a reasonable guy like Adam Kokesh.

TRUTH....knows no national or ideological boundaries. It is...what it is.

And I will side with Code Pink Adam Kokesh Ayn Rand hell even Kanye West talks about the NWO....truth is TRUTH...wherever it may be found.

Norfolk, VA

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

Yes, truth is truth, and it can be found in the mouth of liars

as half-truth.

As far as I can tell, all you want me to do is shut up.

"You see...psychopaths....have an achilles heel: They are immune to the truth"

How is being immune to the truth an achilles heel?

Why are you so interested that I shut up and not seek answers to questions that I ask out loud?

I have been asking Friends of Liberty questions since I showed up here on this forum. It has never been a problem. Rather my questions have been well-received and the answers I have received have been thoughtful and intelligent for the most part.

Why now is asking about the trust-worthiness of Adam Kokesh a problem. Is it an achilles heel? What about truth...Maybe people run like roaches when the light is turned on...Or maybe they strike a lapdog like a snake?

Your reaction to my questions and you calling me a dumbass causes me to wonder why you react to me in such a way.


sharkhearted's picture

NO. I never asked you to shut up.

(Maybe keep silent and absorb more and post less but that is far different from "shut up".

But even if I DID say that if you didn't like it you should just disregard it....after all we all have the natural right to FREE SPEECH.

However this may have arisen from the fact that I questioned your NAIVE condemnation of Adam Kokesh who is light years ahead of you in the liberty movement.

Learn to embrace liberty in its many diverse forms and condemn less those with whom you might disagree...and you will do well.

Norfolk, VA

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

I have said nothing on all the Adam Kokesh posts until tonight.

I have been concerned about reading about an armed march lead by Adam Kokesh, but have said nothing, as in I have been absorbing what has been going on.

Then this post came up tonight, and I have commented.

"Learn to embrace liberty in its many diverse forms and condemn less those with whom you might disagree...and you will do well."

Ron Paul said Liberty is a big umbrella. I agree.

I do think, though, that it is necessary to determine whether people are standing for Liberty for for Anarchy, and I mean anarchy in the lawless sence. Not in the voluntary sense or as in little or no government sense.

Peaceful marches can be turned into chaos if tptb want to do that. You do not think that tptb would use a plant to do something like that?

I have not trusted Kokesh since I watched a video of him which I cannot find that I wish I would have marked. But I made comments here: http://www.dailypaul.com/comment/2332825


sharkhearted's picture

Well then f-u-c-k-i-n-g don't trust him then...

That is your natural right.

Adam is a volunteerist, however...so WHAT's your beef?

You should LIKE volunteerism. I do.

But no, your response is:

Don't trust him.

My response is:

I don't trust him (yet)...and I most certainly don't trust you (yet).

Going back to my original point: You are just naive...or you are a COINTELPRO paid actor....or somewhere in between.

If the last (somewhere in between) or the penultimate (COINTELPRO paid actor) applies...then well...at least someone is admitting to the truth.

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

Now that "you are a COINTELPRO paid actor"

made me laugh even though you f bombed me. And I suppose that didn't mean anything either.

Me, I am a 50 year old Baptist pastor's wife living in a poor-town in the Midwest. I have been a straight-ticket voting Republican my whole life thinking I was doing the right thing.

I don't trust anyone. For all I know Kokesh is a communist pawn.

But I don't know.

It would be nice to be paid to be on this forum, but no, I pay to be on this forum. As a matter of fact I am paying $120 a year to be on this forum and that was my requested birthday present from my Baptist pastor husband so you could throw an f Bomb at me.



and walk away.

I hope that the downvote included reading first

before walking away.

Heaven forbid we should ever

Heaven forbid we should ever stand up for liberty its dangerous someone might get hurt. We should all just lube up and bend over its safer that way... Sigh!

Facking Tories go fack yourselves!

End The Fat
70 pounds lost and counting! Get in shape for the revolution!

Get Prepared!

that is not the message I got when reading the post,

I read that Adam as a leader is suspect. I think it is a point well made. Adam was not even allowed to attend Ron Paul's Tampa rally. Why?

I do not hear Ron Paul in Adam's words.

It is conerning to me.

I am glad to see your post.

I am reading the information and links you have provided.

It is very concerning to me that traps are being laid for those that love liberty by those that would want to take liberty in more ways than one.

I'm glad that you

seem to have your head on straight.

Looking at this from a strictly tactical point of view, Kokesh is planning to lead them onto a bridge. A Bridge! When I was in the Marine Corps we called that a KILL ZONE.

I've been in contact with the D.C. police and they have stated that the moment anyone sets foot on that bridge with a loaded weapon they are committing a felony and WILL be arrested. They will probably let them all get on the bridge and then seal off both ends, trapping all of the protesters, who now have two choices: surrender or fight.

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.

Obama would use this as an excuse to order Martial Law under the Insurrection Act of 1807 - then where will we be? This march is a VERY, VERY, VERY bad idea for a hundred different reasons.

And to the guy above who asked who I am, I'll just say this: I have one thing Adam Kokesh will NEVER have: An Honorable Discharge from the United States Marine Corp.

I'd take a bullet for Ron Paul.

Thank you for your service, and that is meant sincerely.

I have often wondered if Adam Kokesh is not an agent provoceteur.

It was my Honor

to serve; and I'm still trying to be of service to the Republic.

Ron Paul hit a chord with me in 2007, and by 2008 I was his precinct captain in South Carolina. Ron had a huge part in opening my eyes to what our government does behind our backs. He explained to me, in his gentle grandfatherly way, that our government is corrupt and has been for a long time. I truly believe Ron would NEVER approve of this march, and I'm trying desperately to get him on the phone but I'm having no luck.

I saw that you are a Baptist pastor's wife, and when I read that I was embarrassed that you had been spoken to in that way. If I said anything to cause offense I apologize.

Can I ask a favor? Would you have your husband ask his congregation to pray for my family? Ol Scratch is really giving us a hard time here lately. Here's why: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q98UBCRlnCc

God bless you. You seem like a dear lady. ~ Bobby
