    Link to daily paul post (please go to it and up vote it til it gets on the top of the first page!!!) http://www.dailypaul.com/249522/retired-marine-brandon-raub-arrested-for-face...

    Last night at approximately 7:30pm, Brandon J
    Raub, founder of the Richmond Liberty Movement, was arrested. When friends came home they witnessed Brandon being detained by the Police, FBI, and Secret Service, loads of vehicles on scene. Video exists of evidence showing Brandon being taken away. Friends and family asked what had happened, they were told they were tipped off that Brandon had "posts" on his FB that led them to believe he was a danger to others and/or himself. Brandon believes 9/11 was an inside job and questions the actions of government like most of us. Brandon is a level headed, logical, non violent, Marine veteran. He has no known history of being a menace or previously arrested. They were told he would be taken to jail for resisting arrest. They were told he needed to be mentally evaluated for PTSD (due to being a vet).

    As of this morning his family and friends have contact the FBI and Local Police. They are now being told there is NO RECORD of him being taken into custody. This is the key turning point of this story. If you are an attorney, media personality, or you have direct contact info to key personnel you know can investigate this story or make it viral, please get on this!

    From Brandon's mother, Cathleen Thomas:

    "I ask that you pray for our country and my son Brandon Raub. He has been arrested by the FBI and Secret Service for his CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT to express his FREEDOM OF SPEECH on Facebook.

    Remember this?

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

    He is a decorated US MARINE that served in 2 wars for our country.
    He is being held for psychiatric evaluation to see if he is "fit for society" they will not tell me where he is and they will not return my phone calls.

    I know what they are trying to do, and they will not win. They will try to SLAP PTSD on him, they will say he is unstable. THIS IS COMPLETE BULLSHIT!

    Is this what it comes to? Is this MY AMERICA I grew up in? Where are those that are weary of the deliberate stripping and tearing down of our US CONSTITUTION! Were are those that will stand and rise and say "enough is enough" we want out country back. Where are those that adhere, embrace and stand up for the US CONSTITUTION.

    I will not be silent, I will not PASSIVELY stand back and do nothing. I will hold the Constitution high and remind our government of our rights. I will lift it up to my Father in heaven and cry GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH!

    I AM PROUD OF MY SON. He his one of the most logical, clear-minded, stable, LOVER OF GOD and COUNTRY men that I know.

    HE is a Patriot whose time has come. Wake up America! Wake UP!

    RESISTANCE TO TYRANTS IS OBEDIENCE TO GOD~THOMAS JEFFERSON"

    Something not quite right here.

    Has it gotten to the point that the DHS is now profiling retired military on Facebook?

    NDAA guise or not: Brandon Raub was not "arrested." KIDNAPPED then? Also, please help on his legal fees.

    I am telling you folks, they are trying to exert the NDAA (which means no official "arrest"...just a kidnapping).

    The FBI and the Secret Service and the Chesterfield County offer answers:
    "No arrests were made." Said the Secret Service.

    "The FBI did not arrest him. We just went to interview him." [But declined to comment further]. Said the FBI

    "We just aided transport to the hospital." Said the Chesterfield County police.

    Brandon Raub has been detained AGAINST HIS WILL in a Petersburg psych hospital. He has not been "arrested."

    Just kidnapped. Abducted.

    They used this tactic in every despotic regime on the planet. And it is one of the 10 steps to the closing down of a society in Naomi Wolf's masterpiece The End of America.

    Number 6: "Engage in arbitrary detention and release."

    The End of America (film) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    IRONIC huh, that they would pick Virginia, on whose soil was the FIRST in the nation to sign into state LAW that the Kidnapping Provisions of the NDAA were illegal and unconstitutional, and that Virginia officials were NOT TO COOPERATE with the Feds when they came a-knocking.

    If the NDAA has been used--and it appears that it has been--then after Federal Judge Kathleen Forrest's providing injunctive relief against the unconstitutional NDAA Sections 1021 and 1022, declaring them essentially illegal, then the US Government and the FBI and the Secret Service, are in criminal contempt of court.

    And the Chesterfield County Police have broken newly-minted state law...which forbids state officials from cooperating with the Feds under the NDAA.

    Wow. This is all playing out like a movie and liberty minded people across this nation...need to WAKE THE HELL UP!

    Here is the Richmond Times-Dispatch story:
    http://www2.timesdispatch.com/news/2012/aug/19/tdmet02-chest...

    Also, Brandon's mom is trying to raise money for the legal fees.

    You know what to do!

    Attorney Statement on Brandon Raub; Raub to Be Detained Indefinitely

    Submitted by P.Au.L on Mon, 08/20/2012 - 16:38
    Politics, General + Law(s)
    Quicklink

    CHESTERFIELD, VA— The Rutherford Institute has come to the defense of a former Marine, 26-year-old Brandon Raub, who was arrested, detained indefinitely in a psych ward and forced to undergo psychological evaluations based solely on the controversial nature of lines from song lyrics, political messages and virtual card games which he posted to his private Facebook page. Although the FBI and Chesterfield County police have not charged Brandon Raub, a resident of Chesterfield County, Va., with committing any crime, they arrested Raub on Thursday, August 16, 2012, and transported him to John Randolph Medical Center, where he was held against his will due to alleged concerns that his Facebook posts were controversial and “terrorist in nature.”

    In a hearing held at the hospital, government officials disregarded Raub’s explanation that the Facebook posts were being interpreted out of context, sentencing him up to 30 days’ further confinement in a VA psych ward. In coming to Raub’s defense, Rutherford Institute attorneys are challenging Raub’s arrest and forcible detention, as well as the government’s overt Facebook surveillance and violation of Raub’s First Amendment rights.

    “For government officials to not only arrest Brandon Raub for doing nothing more than exercising his First Amendment rights but to actually force him to undergo psychological evaluations and detain him against his will goes against every constitutional principle this country was founded upon. This should be a wake-up call to Americans that the police state is here,” said John W. Whitehead, president of The Rutherford Institute.

    “Brandon Raub is no different from the majority of Americans who use their private Facebook pages to post a variety of content, ranging from song lyrics and political hyperbole to trash talking their neighbors, friends and government leaders.”

    Brandon Raub, a former Marine who has served tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, was detained by FBI agents and police officers at his home in Chesterfield County based upon the nature of content posted to his Facebook page in recent months. Like many Facebook users, Raub uses his Facebook page to post songs lyrics and air his political opinions, as well as engage in virtual online games with other users.

    On Thursday, August 16, police and FBI agents arrived at Raub’s home, asking to speak with him about his Facebook posts. They did not provide Raub with a search warrant. Raub was cooperative and agreed to speak with them. Without providing any explanation, levying any charges against Raub or reading him his rights, law enforcement officials then handcuffed Raub and transported him first to the police headquarters, then to John Randolph Medical Center, where he was held against his will.

    Outraged onlookers filmed the arrest and posted the footage to YouTube. Law enforcement officials have stated in press reports that Raub was not arrested. However, as attorney John Whitehead points out, if the police have put handcuffs on you and you’re being held against your will, that qualifies as an arrest.

    In a hearing before a special justice on August 20, government officials again pointed to Raub’s Facebook posts as the sole reason for their concern and for his continued incarceration. Ignoring Raub’s explanations about the fact that the Facebook posts were being read out of context and his attorney’s First Amendment defense, the special justice agreed that Raub should be incarcerated at a VA hospital for up to 30 more days.

    Rutherford Institute attorneys are working to challenge Raub’s detention and the highly unconstitutional nature of the government’s actions.

    If US Marine Brandon Raub Sent This Type Of FB Message, The NSA Wouldn’t Be Able To Read It
    Monday, August 20, 2012 2:43


    Sunday August 19, 2012 Los Angeles, Ca – Today on The Pete Santilli Show:
    For those of you who use Facebook and are concerned about the NSA/FBI or any other government goons monitoring your messages, please be advised that it will be a long time before the NSA computers have the ability to read hand written imaging of text, decipher multiple hand writing variations and convert that image to text. This hand written image is a great way to convey a simple message without immediately triggering detection with key words. Of course, the image can be viewed but it will not trigger an automated alert to the authorities.


    Pete Santilli, David Lory Vanderbeek and Susannah Cole join together in this episode to discuss 5 Stages of Awakening that almost everyone in America will experience as they become exposed to the realities of our broken system. From conspiracy theories to false-flag events, the “awakened” must be very aware of the various stages, especially as a means to establish the stage they are presently in. If an individual exhibits irrational behavior in the “anger” phase; if they are well informed and self-aware, it’s much easier to control their responses to the information they are trying to interpret. As with Brandon Raub, he may have lashed out in patriotic anger; giving federal authorities justification to detain him. We are all potential detainees like Brandon Raub, and the take away from today’s episode is that we must become aware of the emotional phases we all go through as we awaken, and Pete, Susannah and David emphasize the importance of remaining strong & united in our efforts to share the truth with others.

    “Rapidly Closing Window For Peaceful Revolution” – Oathkeeper Stewart Rhodes

    The Pete

    Monday August 20, 2012 Los Angeles, Ca – Today on The Pete Santilli Show:
    Former U.S. Marine Brandon Raub is locked in a psych ward over his 9/11 Facebook posts. The former Marine who was detained by the federal government over Facebook posts critical of the government is being held against his will, without just cause, and Raub has been sentenced to “up to 30 days’ further confinement in a VA psych ward.
    The FBI is denying any involvement in the actual arrest of Mr. Brandon Raub and Stewart Rhodes, founder of Oathkeepers.org, is calling that statement illegitimate. Rhodes claimed in an interview with Pete Santilli on Monday, August 20, 2012 that,
    “As of now, Brandon Raub has not committed any crime here.” “You can bet if they could arrest him for a crime they would have done it already.” “This arrest is the beginning of mental instability being used as a reason for arrest and is exactly what Stalin and Hitler did. Charge him or release him should be the protest cry for Brandon Raub.” ~Stewart Rhodes
    Very strong warnings from Rhodes during the interview included,
    “America is at a crossroads and we are on the short track to a Hitler type Government. We have to decide whether we are going to turn back the clock to 1775 America or a 1930‘s Nazi Germany America. We have a very rapidly closing window for peaceful solutions — we are running out of time,” says Stewart Rhodes.
    Stewart Rhodes has promised that constitutional leaders, Ron Paul, Andrew Napolitano, Chuck Baldwin, Sheriff Richard Mack who will be gathered at the Republican National Convention will be having a meeting of the minds to talk about what they plan to do to fight back against a Government that is obviously out of control.
    Susannah Cole of CollapseAlert.com writes in her article titled Raising the American False Flag: The Demoralization of The United States Veteran, “Obviously, the Government’s endless, relentless and ongoing campaign to demonize patriots and in particular the United States Veteran, is working.”
    Pete Santilli also takes calls from Veterans including Liberty Activist and 9 year U.S. Air Force Veteran Kristen Meghan who tells a powerful, yet sad story about how she was castigated by her active duty superiors and peers for carrying the U.S. Constitution in her pocket. Kristen was told she was un-patriotic and disrespectful to the uniform. “The fact that I held a Constitution was like I had a pipe-bomb in my pocket.” “I’ve read the U.S. Constitution, and I’ve done more for our country through the Liberty Movement than I did when I was in the Air Force…in fact, my fellow service members were fearless to go lay their lives on the line to kill a foreign enemy; but they shake in their boots to speak about 9-11 or what’s wrong with our own government.”

    Are People Being Thrown In Psychiatric Wards For Their Political Views?


    Submitted by George Washington on 08/21/2012 18:51 -0400

    Corruption
    FBI
    Insane Asylum
    national security
    New Zealand

    Many psychologists and psychiatrists are good people, who are only trying to help their patients.
    But the Nazi government substantially supported psychologists … many of whom, in turn, espoused extermination of the people they considered to be “racially and cognitively compromised”.

    Soviet psychiatrists famously aided Stalin in applying fake insanity diagnoses to political dissenters. The official explanation was that no sane person would declaim the Soviet government and Communism.

    American psychologists created the American program of torture which was specially-crafted to produce false confessions to justify U.S. military policy. And see this.

    And authoritarian American psychologists are eager to label anyone “taking a cynical stance toward politics, mistrusting authority, endorsing democratic practices, … and displaying an inquisitive, imaginative outlook” as worthy of a trip to the insane asylum. (Those traits may also get one labeled as a potential terrorist.)

    As prominent forensic psychiatrist James Knoll - psychiatry professor at SUNY-Syracuse and director of a forensic fellowship program - writes in the Psychiatric Times:




    When psychiatric science becomes co-opted by a political agenda, an unhealthy alliance may be created. It is science that will always be the host organism, to be taken over by political viruses…. [P]sychiatry may come to resemble a new organism entirely -- one that serves the ends of the criminal justice system.
    Even psychologists with good intentions can erroneously label people delusional simply because they themselves make bad assumptions.

    There is even a label for this – the “Martha Mitchell Effect” – defined as:


    The process by which a psychiatrist, psychologist, or other mental health clinician mistakes the patient’s perception of real events as delusional and misdiagnoses accordingly.

    The authors of a paper on this phenomenon (Bell, V., Halligan, P.W., Ellis, H.D. (2003) Beliefs About Delusions. The Psychologist, 6 (, 418-422) conclude:


    Sometimes, improbable reports are erroneously assumed to be symptoms of mental illness [due to a] failure or inability to verify whether the events have actually taken place, no matter how improbable intuitively they might appear to the busy clinician.

    In other words, psychologists who haven’t taken the time to examine for themselves the claims of their patients will tend to label as delusional anything which they “intuitively” feel is improbable.

    As such, psychologists and psychiatrists are just as prone to acting out their irrational prejudices as anyone else … unless they take the time to investigate and educate themselves.
    Governments Indefinitely Detaining Citizens In Psychiatric Wards Without Due Process of Law

    As such, detention in psych wards on mere “suspicion” of posing a danger – without due process of law – is troubling.

    For example, former marine Brandon Raub was just carted off and locked in a psychiatric ward for his allegedly “anti-government” Facebook posts.

    AP reports today:


    Police – acting under a state law that allows emergency, temporary psychiatric commitments upon the recommendation of a mental health professional – took Raub to the John Randolph Medical Center in Hopewell. He was not charged with any crime.

    ***

    Col. Thierry Dupuis, the county police chief, said Raub was taken into custody upon the recommendation of mental health crisis intervention workers. He said the action was taken under the state’s emergency custody statute, which allows a magistrate to order the civil detention and psychiatric evaluation of a person who is considered potentially dangerous.

    New York Police officer Adrian Schoolcraft was involuntarily hospitalizated in a psychiatric ward after he recorded videotapes of his fellow police officers engaging in corruption.

    Claire Swinney of New Zealand was also held in a psychiatric ward and called “delusional” for criticizing the government. Susan Lindauer was held under the Patriot Act for a year at Carswell Air Force Base - where psychiatric drugs were pushed on her - after she alleged government corruption.

    The Daily Mail notes:


    The [British] Government has established a shadowy new national anti-terrorist unit to protect VIPs, with the power to detain suspects indefinitely using mental health laws.

    ***

    The team’s psychiatrists and psychologists then have the power to order treatment – including forcibly detaining suspects in secure psychiatric units.

    Using these powers, the unit can legally detain people for an indefinite period without trial, criminal charges or even evidence of a crime being committed and with very limited rights of appeal.

    Until now it has been the exclusive decision of doctors and mental health professionals to determine if someone should be forcibly detained.

    But the new unit uses the police to identify suspects – increasing fears the line is being blurred between criminal investigation and doctors’ clinical decisions.

    ***
    Scotland Yard, which runs the shadowy unit, refuses to discuss how many suspects have been forcibly hospitalised by the team because of “patient confidentiality”.

    ***

    The purpose of the centre is “to evaluate and manage the risk posed to prominent people by…those who engage in inappropriate or threatening communications or behaviours in the context of abnormally intense preoccupations, many [Many? That means that some are not] of which arise from psychotic illness.”

    Who gets to decide what “inappropriate” or “threatening” means? What if a whistleblower has information that a member of parliament has engaged in bribes? Would trying to reveal such information constitute “inappropriate or threatening communications or behaviours” in the context of “abnormally intense preoccupations” with that MP’s illegal actions?

    Indeed, a study published in the International Journal of Law and Psychiatry found a high rate of false positives in the British identification of dangerous persons.


    The Mail continues:


    So-called ‘sectioning’ allows a patient to be held for up to six months before a further psychological assessment. Patients are then reviewed every year to determine if they can be released.

    ***

    Human rights activists fear the team, whose existence has never been publicised, may be being used as a way to detain suspected terrorists without having to put evidence before the courts.

    ***

    Last night human rights group Liberty said the secret unit represented a new threat to civil liberties.

    Policy director Gareth Crossman said: “There is a grave danger of this being used to deal with people where there is insufficient evidence for a criminal prosecution.

    “This blurs the line between medical decisions and police actions. If you are going to allow doctors to take people’s liberty away, they have to be independent. That credibility is undermined when the doctors are part of the same team as the police.

    “This raises serious concerns. First that you have a unit that allows police investigation to lead directly to people being sectioned without any kind of criminal proceedings.

    “Secondly, it is being done under the umbrella of anti-terrorism at a time when the Government is looking at ways to detain terrorists without putting them on trial.”

    ***

    The team examined thousands of cases and liaised with the FBI, the US Secret Service, the Capitol Hill Police, which protects Congressmen and Senators, and the Swedish and Norwegian secret services.

    ***

    Shadow Health Secretary Andrew Lansley said: “The Government is trying to bring in a wider definition of mental disorder and is resisting exclusions which ensure that people cannot be treated as mentally disordered on the grounds of their cultural, political or religious beliefs.

    “When you hear they are also setting up something like this police unit, it raises questions about quite what their intentions are.

    “The use of mental health powers of detention should be confined to the purposes of treatment. But the Government wants to be able to detain someone who is mentally disordered even when the treatment would have no benefit.

    “Combined with the idea that someone could be classed as mentally ill on the grounds of their religious beliefs, it is a very worrying scenario.”

    Indeed, the whole “indefinite detention” process (which Americans living on American soil are subject to) can be based on circular reasoning:


    The government’s indefinite detention policy – stripped of it’s spin – is literally insane, and based on circular reasoning. Stripped of p.r., this is the actual policy:

    • If you are an enemy combatant or a threat to national security, we will detain you indefinitely until the war is over






    • But trust us, we know you are an enemy combatant and a threat to national security







    See how that works?

    This is an analogy. We are not accusing psych wards of using torture. However, they do often use powerful psychiatric drugs on patients … which can elicit false confessions.

    Are we going to slide into Soviet levels of psychiatric detention of political dissidents? Unless the spread of psychiatric detention without due process of law is checked, the mere belief that the government is interfering with your liberty may become grounds for locking you away.

    FBI, Secret Service, and Police Swarm Marine’s Home After Facebook Comments Flagged as “Terrorist Threats”

    Mac Slavo
    August 19th, 2012
    SHTFplan.com
    Comments (33
    Read by 14,333 people

    FBI, Secret Service and county police swarmed the home of Marine Brandon Raub after he posted numerous comments to his Facebook wall that were, apparently, flagged by police state Fusion centers as highly suspect and threatening.

    At least a dozen local and federal law enforcement personnel raided his home and arrested him:

    According to Raub’s mother, he is being held by police and will be evaluated by a State psychiatrist to ensure he is not a threat to himself or society:
    Via The Daily Sheeple:

    He has not been drugged for those of you asking. They are holding him until Monday when he is to appear before a Judge whom will make a ruling based on the Dr’s (Of their choosing) evaluation of his ability to function in society.

    Should the Judge deem him a terrorist threat and unstable he will continue to be detained for a greater length of time of which is undetermined.

    I am looking into him being evaluated by an outside Dr. of our choosing. I was told that this was not possible. We are seeking legal counsel on this.

    We do not trust their choice of Dr.’s. He is being held for 72 hours until Monday’s hearing.

    He has NOT been accused or booked for any crime. Yet, he was handcuffed, not read his rights and taken away in a police car to be placed into a Psychiatric hospital.

    Oh yeah, he is an AMERICAN CITIZEN.

    What some do not seem to understand or “get” is this, it is not about what someone says or how they said it, or even if I agree with it. This is about the government, OUR government telling us that if you take a stand and speak out against them you can be “taken away”. This is a direct violation of our Constitutional Rights aka “Freedom of Speech”. READ IT, it is clear.
    Among some of the statements made on his page, Raub often posted historical quotes, personal opinions, and outbound links to evidentiary material surrounding events like 9/11 and other “conspiracies.”
    “Do you know why the American people will win the civil war that is coming? Because we are Americans.”

    “And Because we will not stand for oppression. The American people when awakened will become a terrible force to be reckoned with.”

    “veni vidi vici”

    “Death is nothing, but to live defeated and inglorious is to die daily.

    Napoleon”
    The specific comments that may have alerted pre-crime web surveillance systems that Raub was a potential threat likely included comments posted on August 12 and 13, in which he made mention of a coming revolution:
    “Dear men and women in positions in power within our government, corrupt bureaucrats, corrupt judges and police, Nazis in the Marine Corps, Barack Obama and your Communist Cabinet” (linked out to John Cena’s My Time Is Now)

    “Friends,

    You deserve to kow the truth. There has been an overwhelming amount of evil enacted and planned against you, your children, and your countrymen. It is great in scope. Your government [is] evil. It is as simple as that.

    And the calvary is coming.”

    “Sharpen up my axe; I’m here to sever heads.”

    “The Revolution will come for me. Men will be at my door soon to pick me up to lead it.”
    Additionally, Raub posted a Facebook post on August 11 that may have had something to do with raising the ire of the government and powers that be:
    Excerpt:

    Your leaders betrayed you.

    You elected an aristocracy. They are beholden to special interests. They were brainwashed through the Council on Foreign Relations. Your leaders are planning to merge the United States into a one world banking system. They want to put computer chips in you.

    These men have evil hearts. They have tricked you into supporting corporate facism. We gave them the keys to our country. We were not vigilant with our republic.

    There is hope. BUT WE MUST TAKE OUR REPUBLIC BACK.

    As Brandon Smith of Alt Market notes, Raub is, or should have been in a country that prides itself on the rule of law, protected under the First Amendment, despite how unpopular his views may be for some to digest. The fact that multiple alphabet agencies raided his home for the aforementioned comments is a testament to how restrictive our country has become under the watchful eye of Big Brother.

    Slowly, but surely they are eroding our ability to exercise unpopular or controversial speech, to freely assemble in peaceful protest, and to petition the government for a redress of our grievances.
    Former Marine Arrested For Patriotic Posts On Facebook

    by Brandon Smith

    First the establishment started going after current serving military men for their outspoken political views on Facebook and other web venues, men like Marine Sergeant Gary Stein. Now, it seems the government is going after veterans as well. This is the classic pattern of a burgeoning totalitarian state; attack a small group first (outspoken serving military) which the public ignores because it affects them little personally, then slowly expand out to eventually include everyone else. To all those insipid bottom feeders out there who refused to defend Gary Stein’s right to free speech, here is what you have wrought. Because of your ignorance, the government has been able to set a social precedent which they now plan to apply to a whole new group of people, starting with former Marine Brandon Raub. The common statist slave will give the typical coward’s response, which would sound a little something like this:

    “…When are people going to learn that Facebook isn’t private? You would have to be stupid to express such views where everyone can see…”
    “They didn’t arrest him, they just ‘detained’ him…”

    “He’s former military and should be ‘ashamed’ of his comments against the government., blah blah blah, etc…”

    The bottom line is, the 1st Amendment is NOT conditional. ALL speech must be protected, no matter who you are, or where you happen to be speaking. Just because our current criminal government decides 1st Amendment protections do not apply to Facebook does not mean they have the authority to make such distinctions. In fact, the Constitution explicitly outlines how they are restricted from making such distinctions. If a government entity, ANY government entity, attempts to violate Constitutional restrictions, it must be removed by any means necessary.

    Take note that the FBI used the accusation of “terrorist threats” by Brandon Raub as an excuse for the arrest even though there is no indication that any actual threats were present on his Facebook page…

    (Brandon’s comments included observations that 9-11 was done by the government (even going to such length, and an interestingly detailed thesis, of providing evidence to augment this), the War on Terror is a lie, Americans are killing innocent people in the ME, the current federal banking system is corrupt and unfeasible to Americans, and that the George Bush’s family rapes little children)

    I would say that all of these claims have enough circumstantial evidence behind them to warrant a serious independent investigation, and even if they didn’t, there is no law against “conspiracy theory”, at least not yet…

    The police and FBI also failed to read Raub his Miranda Rights. Could this be one of the first public instances of the enforcement of NDAA detainment provisions against a U.S. citizen as a so called “domestic terrorist”? You know, those detainment provisions that Neo-Cons and Neo-Libs alike claim “don’t exist”?

    My question for the statist slaves is, how soon will it be before they get to you? Do you really believe your complacency and apathy will save you? Has that kind of philosophy saved any slave under any other tyranny of the past? This is NOT a free country anymore, and if we do not act to defend each individual who suffers under the weight of bureaucratic oppression, then everyone will lose everything. It is time to pick a side.

    Under the Patriot Act pushed through Congress and renewed by both republicans and democrats, any activity that threatens to undermine the US government - even speech on your personal Facebook account – can and is now considered an act of domestic terrorism.
    As outlined by a recent Department of Justice press release, qualifying as a domestic terrorist in the United States is very broad in scope, allowing the State to pick and choose at will:
    Attempts to undermine the legitimate currency of this country are simply a unique form of domestic terrorism, U.S. Attorney Tompkins said in announcing the verdict. While these forms of anti-government activities do not involve violence, they are every bit as insidious and represent a clear and present danger to the economic stability of this country, she added. We are determined to meet these threats through infiltration, disruption, and dismantling of organizations which seek to challenge the legitimacy of our democratic form of government.
    Once you’ve been chosen by the State to be made an example of, all Constitutional protections fall by the wayside and are replaced with arrest without charge and indefinite detainment without trial, and even forced expatriation.
    This is the new face of the America
    :
    First they came for the communists,
    and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a communist.
    Then they came for the trade unionists,
    and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a trade unionist.
    Then they came for the Jews,
    and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Jew.
    Then they came for me,
    and there was no one left to speak out for me.

    Government Hypes White Supremacist “Racial Holy War” in Effort to Demonize Veterans

    Despite a lack of evidence, the establishment media claims white supremacists, skinheads and neo-Nazis are joining to U.S. military and preparing for a “racial holy war.”

    Reuters reports that racist groups are actively encouraging members to enlist and receive military training to overthrow the “Zionist Occupation Government,” a term invented by the Order, a racist organization created by the National Alliance, a group controlled by the FBI.

    The latest effort by the Pentagon to ferret out violent racists follows the shooting of Sikh worshippers in Wisconsin, allegedly by Wade Michael Page, who served in the psychological operations unit at Fort Bragg.

    The Southern Poverty Law Center characterized Page as a white supremacist who fronted a “hate rock band.” The SPLC also connected the former soldier to the National Alliance. The leader of that group, former Green Beret David Kellerman, admitted he worked for the FBI.

    The effort by the Pentagon – enthusiastically praised and encouraged by the SPLC and the ADL – follows a script produced in 2009 by the Department of Homeland Security that characterizes military veterans as a domestic terror threat.

    “Returning veterans possess combat skills and experience that are attractive to right-wing extremists,” the DHS report on “rightwing extremism” leaked in 2009 claimed. The report said the government is “concerned that right-wing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize veterans in order to boost their violent capacities.”

    An earlier report commissioned by the Justice Department “found half of all right-wing extremists in the United States had military experience,” according to Reuters.

    A colonel interviewed by Reuters, however, said he did not consider the prospect of white supremacists in the military a serious problem. “In my 26 years in the Army, I’ve never seen it,” the former company commander said.



    CNN report claims white supremacists are a problem in the military.
    As exhaustively reported by Infowars.com, the FBI has controlled violent white supremacist groups since the 1960s. Under COINTELPRO, the government “subsidized, armed, directed and protected the Ku Klux Klan and other right-wing groups,” Brian Glick writes. Racist groups were used to create a strategy of tension by attacking groups on the so-called left, including anti-war, Chicano and Puerto Rican activists and nationalists.

    More recently, the specter of armed and violent racists has been used to exaggerate the prospect of domestic terrorism and expand the national security state, the Department of Homeland Security, the FBI and myriad other federal agencies.
