Former Marine Raub Brandon was taken by FBI and Secret Service last night (8/15/12) for his patriotic Facebook Posts. Now being held in mental hospital...DEVELOPING STORY!!
So help me God!
What did he say on Facebook that got them up tight?
..and we know this is real how?
Looking up this Raub Brandon guy, he is still active on Facebook on the day he was supposedly arrested. Nothing controversial, just a few music videos.
He did make a few comments like ‘the revolution is about to start’ but nothing very deep.
There are no news articles about him being arrested. All of the charges circle back to Alex Jones or Above Top Secret.
Would like a better source than just some guy with a YouTube channel.
I think the right link is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YaE5zChbC5w . Th video originally posted is a different item.
Nice to know the Secret Service and FBI are monitoring FB all that closely. /sarc
I did not see the Alex Jones mess.
Sorry about url
That was when I was looking for a legit story on it. The only sources were people like Jones. Not even a local station had picked it up. No one was commenting on his FB page he was arrested. He was posting 50 cent videos on Wednesday, the day he was supposedly arrested.
Welcome to the USSSA . . . comrade.
Looks like I have egg on my face for not checking further.
Thanks. That profile as well was still posting the day of and after he was supposedly arrested. Lots of nutty posts. A truther and he kept saying people were going to get him.
I might add.. Walker's anti-communist views caught the wrath of that era's MSM and they published lie after lie about him including that he led violent attacks on blacks at a Mississippi university. Walker sued but the SCOTUS ruled the the wire service (AP I believe) simply made a mistake. I think that when General Walker reached his 80s the Congress granted him the retirement that he forfeited when he resigned his commission to fight against communism in the U.S.
A lot of this information was verified from wiki -- Hey! How about that? It may be that lefty nutcases can no longer go 24/7 making wiki into wiki graffiti -- unless they simply have yet to do their sharpie attacks and vandalize the authentic accounts contained in the wiki -- Walker was a W.W.II special forces hero and Korean War vet. (He led the troops at Little Rock, Ark. under orders from President Eisenhower 1959, IIRC.)
My emphasis above.. if this Marine is being treated like JFK and RFK treated Edwin Walker we damn well better see to it that the Marine gets the same protection that Edwin Walker got. Even the ACLU helped Walker back then. Now?
1) An otherwise valid arrest is not rendered invalid due to the cops not reading you your rights. It’s really a matter of the admissibility of statements the accused made without the benefit of having been read his rights; and
2) You have, in fact and law, been arrested the moment you are not free to walk away from any police encounter.
Don't say that.. yet; when Walker was grabbed by the Kennedy brothers (see my reply above) I do not recall that back then in the age when the "Fairness Doctrine" ruled, that any MSM reported it. There was of course no talk radio as we know it today.
We knew because there were limited circulation publications available from places like John Birch American Opinion book stores and -- if you searched the racks hard enough -- local book stores.
Thank you for perspective that I had no knowledge of.
I am now not confident of the validity of the article, but at the time I posted it, it seemed credible.
We’ll see how it plays out.
