On Wednesday's show we talked about the lengthy sourced article published by previous guest of the show and owner of Shield Mutual, George Donnelly, whereby he indicated Adam Kokesh was no longer a client, and Adam's business associates have allegedly robbed Adam's business/legal defense/ and personal accounts to the tune of $50,000.00, while Adam continues to languish in a federal jail cell.

However the story gets even more bizarre with the inclusion of an undercover federal agent, gang members, contract fraud, etc.

The Allison Bricker Show has secured an interview with Christopher Cantwell a close personal friend of Adam, who will join me on Thursday's show right after the top of the hour 7pm Est. news.

Any further updates will be published to this post.

"HATE" Blog?

how can you classify any blog with it's own soap opera as a hate blog? It appears the plot may be getting thicker. Waiting to see where all of the chips fall and then waiting some more for chips up sleeves to be played before I comment.

That said, the unfolding drama doesn't change my belief Adam should not be in a cage as a political prisoner.

serious issue with the title of the post

People want a thorough debunking which can't be done due to time constraints.

But just think a little critically here.

I'll say up front I have no dog in this fight but I do know how to think. I know none of the persons involved and have no firsthand knowledge here. I am just going on what has been provided and it raises questions.

First of all, it is clear that no one knows what amount was missing from "Adam's Associates". If any. Or who they were or what they did with it. So then why the word "robbed" in the title, and why the sum $50,000, which from reading the post one gathers is the outermost possible number. Sensationalism draws eyeballs is the answer.

Second. Let's assume for purposes of argument and analysis that some nefarious group somehow collected money that was intended to go to AK while he is incarcerated or for his benefit, defense, or whatever. Great. What does that have to do with "shield mutual" which charges people $50 a year to do, uh, really cool stuff like?

And why is it surprising that a payment to a service lapsed while the person who bought it was locked up? Heck, if I get locked up (which may happen momentarily if I keep posting here - think pastels and white coats and oversized butterfly nets articulated on long polls - nudge nudge wink winky) I will really go to town on letting things lapse! Car insurance? Gone! newpaper? Gonzo! Internet? Kaputsky! Why is this a surprise?

And if the danged service is so darn tootin, why is poor Adam still locked up? Someone 'splain cause I thought the idea is that the normal stuff that people do, like hire lawyers, like pay bail bonds companies, just wasn't good enuff and there was this newfangled stuff called shield that was going to spring you free? Or something? What am I missing? Another sincere question. (Please don't answer that I need to suspend disbelief in order be a libertarian).

Someone summarize it please so I don't have to listen to that show and come back here and taunt you a second time.

So Apparently

So apparently you took no time to read George Donnelly's sourced/footnoted document or listen to the show with interviews, and want others to summarize the issue because you cannot be bothered to click a link or listen to audio?

Knowledge is available to all, but only given to those who endeavor to make the investment.

Your attention to detail is duly noted.

Oh please

First of all, its called having a real job. If his nuggets logic are buried in the footnotes he's to blame.

So how bout you? Can you explain? Go for it! Your dippy radio show already had its moment! Or at least tell us when wonderboyngets to the beef, then we can go check it out without having to grow roots listening to some disembodied voices ramble.

Haters gonna Hate, but Lovers gonna LOVE!

Haters gonna hate as they say, and apparently change their screen names several times daily.

You would do yourself a favor by hanging up your troll hat as you are perhaps the most banal I have ever come across during my time on the internet.

But by all means, please change your screen name again, and leave yet another vacuous reply as it is reasonably discerned that it is your relied upon coping mechanism to wit helps distract you away from examining your own failings.

In the end, and having read several comments of yours on other posts, I cannot help but feel sorry for you, for your endless attempts at hating on the success of others clearly illustrates a deep and profound dislike for your own obviously miserable station in life.

So here is to hoping you may yet discover, the benefits and wonderful returns gained when pursuing your passions and building yourself up, in lieu of persistently trying to tear others down into your self-created misery.

Be well.

Oh yes see I must be just jealous

Of the majesty and success of the Alison Bricker show which I'd never heard of before.

I don't see me hating on others success.

I see me questioning a bad headline and a quacked up pseudo-service.

Libertarians are supposed to think, and I guess that is where the prepackaged shrink wrapped conspiracy laden garbage at this site is so disappointing. But if one needs a viewership I suppose that is a target market for you. Doesn't make it any less pathetic, but there you go.

"sheild mutual"

can someone explain what they hell it is they do and how they make money doing it.

Thanks in advance.

Insincere question

You have already attacked the persons involved, you have already made your accusations and now you can't read a website?

Your question is insincere and you have an agenda.

Not hard to figure out what it is.

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.

Very sincere question

and that is why you can't comprehend it. You, like some so called free thinker/liberty lovers here, are looking not to think for yourself but to agree with people who have the same viewpoints on every insignificant issue.

Now back to the point. Agenda. Really? What is it? Is my agenda to promote this shield stuff, whatever it is? No, it isn't. Is my agenda to stick up for Adam? His friends? His dad? His contributors? Or maybe, just maybe, I am asking a question to know the answer.

So, what do they do? I listened a while back to the shield dude on some show and couldn't figure it out. Not for $50 a year, could he do anything that would result in being released from incarceration. he makes clear it doesn't fund legal work, which is the only thing that could do that. Is he going to write a press release on one of those post-your-own press release sites? Okay. That's something. I guess for $50, that is reasonable.

I'll admit I don;t get it. So I ask again, what does it do and how does it make money? I really would like to know.

Possible idea

I don't know how many counterfeit versions of an idea exist compared to the number of genuine versions, but the possible idea here can be summed up as Anti-Despotism Insurance.

An analogy for that which is genuine compared to that which is counterfeit is along the lines of proven, known, organic remedies to illnesses versus the snake oil salesman.

One works to cure the ailment and the other creates more ailments.

One is genuine, and one is counterfeit.

A possible illustration of Anti-Despotism Insurance can be worded differently as Liberty, or Free Market Government, or self-government, or any investment of any kind whereby the intent is to cover losses that may occur due to injuries perpetrated by criminals who happen to have given themselves the legal license to cause injury to innocent people.

The following links may offer some data that may help in understanding the idea:


The idea there is to have a free market type 911 service whereby a call is made and help is ready to assist in cases where the criminals with badges are currently injuring an innocent victim.


Our Tyranny Alert system will enable members being accosted by rogue public servants to send, right from their cell phones, distress calls, audio and video streams and GPS coordinates to other members' cell phones, and to receive from those other members a list of who is responding to the scene and estimated time of arrival for each en route respondent.

Members who receive distress calls will be able to, right from their cell phones, indicate whether or not they are responding to the scene, monitor the audio /video stream of their fellow member in distress, view the location of the distressed member on a map and get turn-by-turn directions to the exact location of the distressed member.

Shield Mutual may have been a start-up that was intending to be based upon the idea of Anti-Despotism Insurance or Anti-Tyranny Insurance, or some other, similar, idea, and then Shield Mutual may have specialized in legal defense against legal aggression.

Shield Mutual may be a counterfeit version of a genuinely liberating idea.

I do not know specifics concerning Shield Mutual, the idea to me is sound in the genuine form, which can be improved by Free Market Forces, as potential consumers demand higher quality and lower cost versions of the genuine articles, and as consumers learn which ones are counterfeit, or fraudulent, versions.

When the counterfeiters take over the power of law, they work to make sure that there is no competition, in ways that may not be as obvious as a gang with false badges showing up at the door to kidnap and enslave innocent victims, or burn them alive.


everything except wash my car!

According to their site they:

"When governments attack, we spring into action in accordance with your instructions. We connect conscious individuals in a network for maximum impact. We produce a range of appropriate media, from websites and fliers to social media and press releases. Together with the committed community that are our members, we can:

Deliver peace of mind, knowing that someone will speak up for you in case of aggression – someone who is under no illusions about the character of the state and its agents and who is not afraid to speak the truth on your behalf even in the face of oppression.
Provide leadership, consistency and commitment to your advocacy needs in your moment of greatest difficulty.
Prepare ahead of time so that you are in the best possible position in case of attack.
Create and distribute a narrative that more accurately represents the truth than anything the police, prosecutor, judge or other bureaucrats will say about you. Since the state justice monopoly is anything but blind, having an impact with a competing narrative in the public relations arena can benefit you greatly.
Issue press releases to appropriate libertarian and other media outlets presenting your narrative in the light most likely to garner journalists’ and editors’ attention.
Publish a website to serve as a central point of communication for the campaign to free you, or to achieve whatever your goal is.
Organize call floods to let your attackers know that we are watching, support you, demand your immediate release, etc.
Research legal representation options, vet them and make a recommendation as to the absolute best lawyer for your case, should you wish to hire one.
Raise funds to bail you out, to pay a lawyer, to fund a mainstream media distribution of your press release, to sustain you or your family during the crisis or whatever you want to ask for. Successful fundraising also shows the bureaucrats who are watching that the support behind you is more than just symbolic social media comments or angry phone calls, it’s backed by money and lawyers.
Coordinate with your friends, allies and family while you are incommunicado.
Lead social and other media campaigns to alert supporters to your cause and inspire their solidarity.
Plan and execute solidarity actions of whatever nature may be most appropriate.
Speak to the media on your behalf and/or arrange interviews for you and/or your spokesperson.
Unlimited counseling on how to frame your argument, prepare your talking points and handle media interviews.
Reach like-minded individuals who could be inspired by you and might subsequently join our movement and follow in your footsteps.
Raise hell however you deem necessary" Wow WHAT A LIST!

I think I could use some more "peace of mind."

And I'd like to raise some hell, but seeing as to how I am working until ten then seeing the movie Rush on opening night, I can't do any hell raising until this weekend; maybe they can do some for me and report back on what happened (long as I don't have to go to the pokey if they do something stupid that involves drug addled starlets and corn liquor). $50? sign me ups!

ok, fine

so it seems that "shield mutual" in addition to whatever it normally does (which I still don't understand) decided to fundraise for Adam's legal defense. Whoopee. Or maybe they do that for everyone.


What is this guy bitching about? Is it his beef that there is another group out there trying to also raise money for Adam? Did Adam task him with finding out what the other group is doing/has done with funds? Or is it his beef that the other group exists, and the money didn't come through Shield? Why would the other group raising money for Adam have to provide accountings to Shield? Why would Shield care? What does Adam, who unlike the others, does have a vested interest in what is done with monies raised for his benefit, think about all this?

I am not going to pretend that I have read the whole thing, because I haven't. I feel like from what I have read thus far that I could spend 3 hours on this issue and have nothing but questions. Without just linking and saying "go fish for your answer" can someone summarize it?

"Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the the universe."-- Albert Einstein

They raise money to pay for "lawyers"

who will screw over their clients because they operate like your brainwashed ass; one who does not understand how to shape precedent properly and keep the court within their bounded capacity.

This is what is shady about them to me. Anyone who is going to raise funds to pay the very people who destroyed the Law should be rejected as an ally. Attorneys wish to go play a game of be buddies with the system so they will like and listen to their arguments instead of demonstrating the fraud the men claiming to be "courts" are actively perpetrating every working day.

Attorneys who are NOT seeking to have the "Judges" and "STATE Prosecutors" brought to justice and thrown in prison for criminal fraud are part of the problem.

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...

I'll ignore the superfluous

and just respond to the substantive kernel within your post this once.

If you pay $50 a year for them to be funded so that if your arse gets locked up, they can then go take the $50 and start a fundraising for legal fees campaign, I fail to see how that makes sense. Can one get a website up and running for that? Set up a fund, bank account, paypal, or whatever? I doubt it. And I distinctly remember them saying they don;t do legal work. So they fund it but don't do it?

I still don't get it.

Calling all ANTI TROLL TROOPS! Prepare for active status.

Fair chance we will get a wave of trolls tonight folks. Adam is still a threat to the establishment and this is a rare opportunity for his multiple enemies to try and disrupt things.

Please join me in being present on the boards, on chat and with sensible, reasonable call-ins. It's already a hot topic, Adam has many admirers and many critics among us just to start with. It's quite possible tonight's broadcast will be just as controvertial if not more.

And remember......

Looks like trolls out in force distracting from the real issue of Adam's unlawful arrest! They spew disinformation and/or pose a diversion by starting petty arguments to take up time and energy that could otherwise be focused on the issue at hand.

The Federal Reserve Act: Act To provide for the establishment of Federal reserve banks, to furnish an elastic currency, to afford means of rediscounting commercial paper, to establish a more effective supervision of banking in the United States

Agreed and we should expect this. Get ready for incursion!

This is an attack point for them. We should be ready. They are prepping, so should we.

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.

Disinfo? What part of the

Disinfo? What part of the below is false?

Like he was too stupid to hide his illegal vegetables knowing full well he would be raided after his "civil disobedience"?

What issue at hand? So many people and sponsors gave that fraud alot of dough and he didnt put it in the hands of more qualified people?

He is in jail because he annoyed too many people near the capitol and got busted for illegal things. (I dont care if they shouldnt be illegal, they are....deal with it. Or hide them better and dont go on social media bragging about them.)



Logic and reason have no place in this discussion, disinfo shill troll thingie!

A signature used to be here!

Adam is feeling the full force of a coercive government.

That is destined to use all means of intimidation and force to push him down as hard as they can. Money isn't an issue here as federal reserve notes are NOT money.

Adam "hired" some amateurs

Hello guys, this is AVTM, I

Hello guys, this is AVTM, I was possibly, maybe "robbed" of 50k. What I mean by possibly, is people tell me no one is talking about me anymore after my "civil disobedience" that no one saw. Then my house got raided after I openly admitted to the world I used recreational vegetables. I wasnt smart enough to get rid of them or hide them outside my property and got put in a cage.

I need some more publicity and no one can prove that I wasnt robbed so please send me some money AND bring my name up some more.

Thanks and keep on keeping on.



In the event that I actually was robbed, send me more money anyway. I like money.

u like money? that's so crazy

u like money? that's so crazy i like money too.

:) I guess people cant take a


I guess people cant take a joke today.

having at least a few

having at least a few comments or posts downvoted to oblivion should be a point of pride. as much as we wince at the sight for a second, when we collect ourselves, we realize good form and good taste demands no less.

as buddah said, fsck the haters.

SteveMT's picture

Do you mean: Adam Kokesh robbed 'of' $50k?

The title sounds like Adam did the robbing. Kokesh is a Patriot, and he has been put through a ringer in the last few months. There is no need to make him incorrectly out to be a robber also. Thanks for correcting.
