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.
Concerning the X Marine mentioned
You might find this interesting:
Wow, that facebook page is a bit scary if you ask me....
He seems a bit deranged and possibly dangerous!
Wow...this guy is a COMPLETE wacko. The best thing for him is to be removed from society. LEt’s look at his delusions...
1. A missile hit the Pentagon...despite NUMEROUS indepednent eyewitnesses saying it was a plane.
2. Building 7 was imploded, even though it is NOTHING like an implosion.
3. Chem-trails. Nothing else needs to be said about this one.
This guy was a lonely child who wanted attention. And he got it.

A few of his posts might be considered as threatening by the FBI. These posted included a quote from the song Bring Me Down by the band Swollen Members saying “Sharpen up my axe; I’m here to sever heads”. He also mentioned starting a revolution and made vague threats against military generals saying “I am coming for you”
According to Richard Gilbert Threatening the government officials of the United States is a serious crime under federal law. Threatening (non-presidental) officials is a federal felony, usually carrying maximum penalties of 5 or 10 years under 18 U.S.C. § 875
From The Josh Tolley Show: http://www.JoshTolley.com
The first part of this video was taken 8.16.12 around 7:30 pm. This is the video of a fellow patriot, Brandon J Raub, being “arrested” and taken away by Chesterfield County Virginia Police Department. They showed up inquiring his postings on facebook, and then they just took him.
Here is the post: http://www.facebook.com/notes/brandon-j-raub/the-truth/2587924188052
The mother made the following facebook post:
I was at the Chesterfield police dept inquiring on where my son was. I do have a video of the FBI and Chesterfield police dept taking my son away.
They told me last night, that yes, he is here and being evaluated. There was nothing I could do they said, but await his phone call.
No one has called, so I began to call. Called the chesterfield police jail and they told me that he was not there and they have NO RECORD of him being processed there or booked for any crime.
They gave me the number to the FBI which I already had because Agent Sherry Granger 804-241-4770 Called me upon his arrest and told me my son was being evaluated as a potential terrorist for his comments on face book AND that he was arrested by the Chesterfield Police Department.
So I called her back this morning since no one seems to know where my son is and she did not speak to me but a representative of the FBI told me he was taken to a Psychiatric Facility called Popluar Springs in Petersburg Va. So I called Popluar Springs and they have no record of his admittance.
How would you like this to happen to your child just because he exercised his constitutional right of FREE SPEECH?
Now being held in mental hospital
That’s what they did with political prisoners in the Soviet Union.
Thanks for the update.
Yes, he is evidently a Truther. And a Ron Paul Supporter.
Is he dangerous? Doubt it.
Is the FBI totally wacked? Yes, under the current administration.
