Skip to comments.Adam Kokesh: Peter Schiff: Joined at the hip?
Posted on 03/17/2010 4:09:40 PM PDT by RaceBannon
THIS IS ABOUT PETER SCHIFF, the Connecticut candidate for Senate.
In the last two weeks, I have been working on keeping New Mexico voters aware of an EX-Marine named Adam Kokesh who is running for the national Congressional seat in the Farmington New Mexico area.
Kokesh is a member of IVAW, (Iraq Veterans Against the War). He openly marched in demonstrations against his country after returning from Iraq. He was arrested for bringing an illegal weapon to a college campus and having it stolen from his car, and then had a Military trial and lost a stripe for it since he brought it back illegally from Iraq.
Kokesh went to an Army base and openly stood in a Chow Hall and videotaped himself calling on the troops to desert in time of War and posted in online and on the IVAW blog under his own name.
Kokesh also led a demonstration in DC in front of a recruiting station where his public stated goal was to prevent any recruiting from going on that day. Kokesh’s accomplices that day berated several Blue Star Mothers, (Mothers of Soldiers/Marines/Airmen/Sailors serving in time of war) and told them their sons should die in Iraq.
First hand witness accounts here :
Video taken by the Left Wing protesters is found here:
http://www.dc-sds.org/ (see the bottom of the page)
They did this in the presence of Kokesh and with his approval. After this verbal abuse, the protestors broke the windows of the recruiting station. Kokesh left the scene and participated in a die in. He also led IVAW members through the streets of DC wearing uniforms of our military service while he still had reserve time to finish before his time of Military obligations were over.
He was asked about this by a Marine officer who wanted to determine why he did what he did and were the allegations true. Kokesh admitted this was true and told the Major to GO F__ HIMSELF in his e-mail response. He ALSO posted that e-mail exchange online on the IVAW website.
A website was created in the last 3 weeks to expose this fraud in an attempt to derail his candidacy in New Mexico. That website is found here:
Please go there to see the information we have gathered, to include photographs and videos of him at these events.
Since investigating this man, I have repeatedly found references to Peter Schiff next to Adam Kokesh. I realize that Schiff was a Ron Paul supporter, but I was unaware until the last few days just how much Ron Paul was connected to both of them.
I agreed to support an endorsement of Peter Schiff for the sole reason that I thought a RINO like Rob Simmons was bad for our nation. However, I must completely remove my support knowing now that Schiff’s associations, even by proxy, are with an organization that openly supports a traitor, Adam Kokesh.
The words of Navy SEAL Commander, Capt Larry Baily speak it well for me. The details of this letter written by Capt Baily are verifiable by anyone who desires to look:
Peter Schiff is joined at the hip of Adam Kokesh and the Ron Paul political types. I find that form of governing to be an abomination, one that I will choose a RINO over any day before I vote for someone who openly supports treason, either directly or by proxy. Schiff’s association with Ron Paul and Kokesh are undeniable, for they attended the same events and are on the same videos from these events and have appeared together on Judge Napolitano’s Webcast TV show together endorsing each other through their presence and associations.
I will openly oppose anyone who supports Peter Schiff from this day forward for these reasons. This is not a joke nor is it intended to be a threat, but I guarantee you, any organization that endorses Peter Schiff will be exposed for endorsing the traitor, Adam Kokesh, either by direct action or by proxy.
As one of the original founders of the Hartford Tea Party, this is an issue where I must draw the line. This is not a negotiable issue for me. This is about treason and the supporting of a traitor through association.
Peter Schiff’s association with Ron Paul bothered me because Ron Paul is someone who once had great ideas but has most recently joined hands with 9/11 truthers. He is also a believer in aliens and UFO’s, something I find to be in interesting topic and fun to watch on movies but logically absurd. To know fully, and with video evidence and open plain stated testimony by the men themselves available, association with any of Ron Paul’s people is an association with the suborning of treason by it’s connection to Adam Kokesh.
Please consider my words. Think real hard. We all know our nation is at stake, but I will NOT support anyone who supports treason in any form or ignore it for political expediency.
We certainly don’t want a fiscal conservative in the senate, now do we? And surely we don’t want one who predicted and can explain why the credit crisis occurred and why we’re headed towards a currency crisis.
Nope, can’t have that!
Ron Paul’s tenacles reach far and wide.
We’r enot going to GET a fiscal coinservative with Peter Schiff, and you just proved you APPROVE of treason if that is your response
You’re on the treason approving list! Thanks for playing!
PING! to the NM list.
We can also add Judge Napolitano to the list of people associated with Kokesh.
serious problems with Peter Schiff revealed!!!
I’ll vote for schiff 100 out 100-you people can smear him all you want. America is bankrupt and he has the solution-smaller govt-if that means pulling our troops out of every foreign country i’m fine with it.
Who are you guys working for? The Dems or a republican running maybe? what a joke
Race, NM-3 encompasses much more than the Farmington area; it essentially is the entire northern portion of the state plus some of the eastern part (Albuquerque is in District One at the intersection of I-40 and I-25).
I'm guessing you're too upset to type straight?
Shiff, and Paul, and other conservatives of the old school are constitutionalists first, who believe that wars should be declared by Congress. They also suggest that killing civilians in foreign countries might just contribute to building the ranks of terrorists determined to do us harm.
You might disagree with it, but this mindset is hardly traitorous.
no, it’s just when treason supporters tell me that money means more than character, I just lose my cookies
like every time I read your name now
Another vote for treason
thanks for playing!
Just how much green beer did you have to drink today, anyway?
Five-term Democratic incumbent Christopher Dodd was reelected with 66% of the vote in 2004. Facing grim prospects for reelection, Dodd announced on Jan 6, 2010, that he is not running for reelection. Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal (D) plans to run for the seat, which is expected to improve the Democrats’ chances of holding the seat in November.
On the Republican side, Euro Pacific Capital President and noted financial pundit Peter Schiff, an outspoken libertarian who has gained attention for correctly predicting the subprime mortgage crisis despite mockery from other industry analysts, announced he is running for Senate on September 17, 2009, after raising more than a million dollars.. Additionally, former Congressman Rob Simmons and former CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment Linda McMahon have announced their candidacies.
Vincent Forras and Dr. John Mertens have filed paperwork to run as independents.
Barack Obama won Connecticut with 60.59% of the vote in 2008.
So who should conservatives support in Connecticut?
I hope Schiff isn’t the same as Kokesh. He is very rational on economic issues and I haven’t heard him fall into the Paulian head in sand defense stand.
I wish Forras got more ground but he is a real dark horse in this one
McMahon made her money injecting steroids into jocks and called it entertaiment. At the Enfield Republican Town Committee, she was asked if she believed in man made global dwarming, she sais YES
Simmons is strong on national defense, but is a social liberal, he is a Military Veteran LIEberman, sadly
I am holding my nose and voting for the Hawkish LIEberman clone, the others are worse candidates, Forras didnt get any traction, he seemed like a good guy
Who knows? It is still over a month away, Forras might take off, he needs media attention, and if the media doesn’t play you, then you dont exist
McMahon has hired with wife of the state GOP leader Chris Healy for the last 6 months or so, that spells it out who the state GOP is going for: DEEP POCKETS MCMAHON!!
Thank you for supporting treason, that is your second try!
Works both times.
Go ahead, vote for money, ignore character! After all, it’s what a Libertarian would do!
There are three legs of Conservatism- Fiscal, Defense, and Social. Most people will settle for two out of three, however, considering the federal government's number one purpose is defense of the homeland, that is a hard leg to be hobbled.
Dude, you forgot to switch accounts when you responded to yourself.
I wonder if Schiff even knew, however, he lost my vote and endorsement as part of the Hartford Tea Party Coordinator and founder’s club.
He was with that traitor too long, appeared with him too many times, said too many things, he HAD to have heard of it and that means he ignored it for expediency.
He ignored treason, he Ignored KLokesh’s alliances with Code Pink, ANSWER, World Workers Party, he ignored it all
Just to get a Libertarian’s Paradise.
Makes me sick
especially the two so far who ignored Kokesh’s treason on this thread to stick up for Schiif and ignore the treason he supports.
That's my cousin Vinny! (he is everyone's cousin Vinny) I can attest he is a good guy and VERY Conservative- strong defense.
I already have a stake in Vinny to win but I was hoping Schiff wasn’t just on Paul’s radar because of his economic stance. I’ll do some digging.
For research, these are the Paulian web troops.
For those who don’t know, Vincent Forras was one of the first responders to the World Trade Center on 9-11. In fact, he was buried in the rubble for some time and really didn’t think he was going to survive. God still had plans for him, though.
Ping to my post #27.
Kokesh is a Neo Leftist. running as a Repulican
was to make him seem like a regular vet.
He has been arrested with his Left Wing groups anti war demonstrations.
This is the kind of thing John Kerry was involved with
and Kokesh is exactly the same.
Mr. Kokesh was active in the IVAW from 2007 to 2009, at which time he announced his candidacy for Republican Congressman from New Mexico.
There are no indications that he has revoked his affiliations with the IVAW. As an active member of the IVAW, Mr. Kokesh was involved in numerous anti-military, and by explicit extension, anti-Bush/Republican activities and actions.
While executing these actions, Mr. Kokesh knowingly and gladly, made common cause with a wide array of other well-known, radical anti-America and communist groups. The list of these other groups includes, but is by no means limited to, the following:
United for Justice and Peace
Communist Party of America
In cooperation with the above-named groups and the IVAW, Mr. Kokesh: participated in multiple anti-war demonstrations in Washington DC, and other cites throughout the country;
organized and incited violent demonstrations at military recruiting stations; participated in an initiative to encourage active duty soldiers to desert their military post; organized and participated in a Winter Soldier Conference 2, an effort designed to malign and undercut the moral of our soldiers who were fighting and dying on the battlefield.
Even a most cursory search of the Internet will yield a plethora of documents attesting to the veracity of these assertions.
Personal character questions, and anti-Republican Party activities
Apart from his considerable radical leftist affiliations and activities, there many concerns about Mr. Kokeshs general personal qualifications for congressman; and we have specific concerns about the appropriateness of his being considered for being a Republican congressman. Mr. Kokesh has no history of personal accomplishments or achievement, yet he does have a notable history of poor judgment and illegal behavior.
Moreover, he has no history of supporting the Republican Party, and in fact has been actively unsupportive and undermining of the Party.
I met him in Pomfret, his son is a Marine!
Damn, I wanted to go for him but I was trying to commit to Schiff
Vinny seems too friendly, not charismatic enough, but hey, I wanted someone who never was in Congress anyways! He would fit right in!
Actually, vinny seemd too nice! Whats he want that job for?? LOL!
Works both times.
Go ahead, vote for money, ignore character!
I guess I'll have to go for three out of three, because I have to ask you to explain this nonsense, please.
I don’t know anything about Kokesh, or whether he’s worthy of support. I do know of Ron Paul and Peter Schiff, and both are worthy of my support.
Agreed, and I understand also that the good Congressman's argument that killing civilians in foreign lands leads to an increase in terrorism is lost on you. Guess that makes me a traitor, huh?
Ron Paul is also involved in the same left wing anti war
Most of his support is from 9/11 Truthers
Ron Paul would not vote to condemn Ahmadinejad.
Ron Paul stated Iran and North Korea are not a threat.
His rants against Israel are on Youtube.
Yea, I know... words of a radical left-wing traitor.
Get a clue. Become a REAL conservative!
I am working to spread the word. Unfortunately, where I work, politics are verboten, and I don't have a lot of friends in the area who are even eligible to vote in NM 3.
Get a clue, drop out of your Left Wing troll mode.
Are you so clueless that you don't understand the political spectrum?
It isn’t lost, I understand he pulls that tired, worn out hippie excuse out of his ass, however, it doesn’t make it less bull. Anyone with a passing knowledge of history knows this.
in your eyes, REAL conservatives support 9/11 truthers and traitors and ufo chasers??
No thanks, I’d rather try to fix the system, not exchange it with lunatics who support traitors and truthers and ufo chasers.
I worked for Reagan when he first ran for Gov.
I have confronted many times large numbers of Code Pinkos, the same org. Kokesh is associated with.
Have countered many huge anti war loons just like Kokesh
These people spit out the words sounding like a reasonable
person when they are tools of the left.
I have followed in depth politics and world affairs since
Your type is typical of the no nothing, keyboard commandos
Antiwar nuts in New Mexico and Libertarians in Connecticut............
If we are talking about the financial Schiff dude, I have heard his opinions many times. He is a die hard Libertarian fiscally but they run as Repubs. I have not heard him speak to any other issue. I have no idea what he knows or cares about except money and precious metals. I would be OK with him if there was no other choices over a liberal, but a moderate repub is a better hand then a Big L Libertarian when there is strategic US interests at stake.
As to the weenie in NM, he needs to take a hard shower of the kind we used to give to people who refused to bathe when I was in the Army..
Why does it suddenly smell like Patchouli in here?
That's a load of crap.
These Muslim and Commie governments are all F'd up and stay that way. The only way their regimes, be they theocratic, or King Ruler deal with the public anger is to direct it away from the crap government and against something they can't see.......Like the U.S. or GB.
They do this regardless of our entanglement or not. It matters not because eventually they will create a reason or two or three to use to foment more anger.
Ron Paul is just wrong, but we all figured that out when we ran all his predecessors out of positions of power in the party decades ago. We refused to give Buchanan a vote and we still reject any of the crap they constantly spew as true conservative dogma.
Kokesh is very bad and I wonder if the former Steven Schiff of NM is related to this Peter Schiff.
If so, then it is like the Salazar brothers in NM and CO. It’s like Richardson and so many others who move to a state they want to win and don’t run to serve the citizens who are from there but run to gain control.
Thanks for your posts on all this important info for NM.
I’m with you, RaceBannon. I run into too many that don’t seem to know the difference between conservative and libertarian. People like RP, Kokesh, and probably Schiff and RP’s son running for office in Kentucky, remind me of the German commercial raiders in WW2. They were ships operated under false pretenses, under a false flag.
I don’t trust these libertarians, Glenn Beck included. They may prove to be more destructive, in the long run, to the Conservative cause than the Dems themselves.
I am lkosing friends in the CT Tea Party movement over this
so be it!
I choose patriotism, not treason supporting Ron Paul Acolytes.
Schiff may honestly not know about Kokesh, but a simple GOOGLE search confirms they have been hooked together on websites for over a year
Click on the videos, too, there are TONS of videos that link them together
To be honest, I doubt Schiff or even Rob Simmons have much of a chance. So far it looks to me like Linda McMahon is going to buy her way into the GOP Senate candidate slot. We're being inundated with slick brochures from her campaign almost weekly, and I'm sure you've seen/heard the TV and radio ads. I've never seen anything like this in my life here in CT!
Doesn't mean she'll get my vote, though...
Honestly, that makes me glad that I'm still registered as a Democrat here. I get to vote against Blumie twice!
Once in the primaries where I'll vote for Merrick Alpert (not because I want him to win), and then again in the general elections.
My husband (who is definitely conservative) does the same thing. He got a big kick out of voting for Al Sharpton for President in the primaries a few years ago... LOL
