Skip to comments.A march on Washington with loaded rifles
Posted on 05/04/2013 3:41:32 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Libertarian activist and radio host Adam Kokesh is hoping to get 1,000 people to march on Washington on July 4 armed with loaded rifles. The plan, launched with a Facebook group today, is to gather on the Virginia side of the Potomac, where gun laws are lax, and then march across the bridge with loaded rifles slung over their shoulders into the District, where openly carrying weapons is generally prohibited.
This will be a non-violent event, the Facebook group warns, unless the government chooses to make it violent. Already, over 200 people have said theyll attend the march. Heres the message:
On the morning of July 4, 2013, Independence Day, we will muster at the National Cemetery & at noon we will step off to march across the Memorial Bridge, down Independence Avenue, around the Capitol, the Supreme Court, & the White House, then peacefully return to Virginia across the Memorial Bridge. This is an act of civil disobedience, not a permitted event. We will march with rifles loaded & slung across our backs to put the government on notice that we will not be intimidated & cower in submission to tyranny. We are marching to mark the high water mark of government & to turn the tide. This will be a non-violent event, unless the government chooses to make it violent. Should we meet physical resistance, we will peacefully turn back, having shown that free people are not welcome in Washington, & returning with the resolve that the politicians, bureaucrats, & enforcers of the federal government will not be welcome in the land of the free.
Kokesh is a former Marine who was discharged in 2007 after violating the militarys code against engaging in political activity while in uniform. Kokesh was highly active in the antiwar movement....

"Don't nobody take the bait."
Kokesh is a traitor punk and we should avoid any antics he plans.
I wouldn’t trust him in an outhouse with a muzzle on.
Not interested in being led to slaughter by some moron.
Kokesh is a former Marine who was discharged in 2007
Tells me all I need to know about this moron. He has a vendetta, let him handle it on his own.
Sounds like this guy is trying his best to get a bunch of people arrested or shot as they muster up! Just fuel for zero’s gun grabbing agenda.
Second would be the fellows guarding the air defense missile batteries ~ not going to talk about where they are at the moment, but you cross any bridge from Virginia into DC you'll be real close to one, and you don't want to do that.
The Feds will just close the bridge. LOL Sounds like they’ve been advised by Barack 0bama; They’ve tipped off the enemy by announcing their plans in advance.
Salon magazine dabbling in false-flag agitprop. "Let's you and he fight." Sorry, folks, if this one really does go hot the proggies at Salon will be participants, not spectators.
Adam Kokesh: An anti-war smear merchant in Republican clothing
What does Karl Rove have to say about this?
This sounds staged to frame the “bitter clingers” crowd as hostile law breakers.
This sure sounds like a set-up by an 0scumbag agent; stay away from it.
My 2 cents: that many loaded weapons all in one crowded place would be an open invitation for a deliberate provocation by the “gun-grabbers” or pro-dictatorship forces (or at least unfortunate accidents). I’d suggest leaving the bullets OUT of the rifles.
Sounds like Mr. Kokesh is an agent provocateur.
Arlington National Cemetary is federal land, not Virginia’s, so if they attempt to bring weapons there, they will surely be arrested and have their firearms confiscated. I don’t think the military guards there will find any humor in this protest.
Not gonna happen!
Gun owners aren’t that stupid.
Oh, the government would never fire on their own citizens . . wait . . Kent State, Waco, Ruby Ridge, Wounded Knee . .
Big Sis has fantasies about things like this happening.
For what? You go face to face with the Federal Government, you are going to lose every time. I gurantee you this idiot is on the FBI’s payroll. And he is just trying to set up a bunch of bigger fools than he is.
This is guranteed to get every idiot that participates in it a trip to either the Federal Penituary or the graveyard.
Well, Farcebook's a damned good place to look !
Seriesly tho, how ever much of the thing might happen to take place, it could prove instructive to see how the fascists play it . . .
I’m not giving up any of my liberties until/unless we are facing a real civil war.
I’m not going to act like some martyr for nobody!
I WILL defend my liberty when and if it comes down to that option.
You are correct, sir.
Also, don’t forget what happened to the Bonus Army. And they weren’t armed.
True patriots on a site like FR will never fall for such blatant, government sponsored agitprop. Facebook on the other hand?? There you have the mind numbed robots who voted for this tyranny in the first place.
Kokesh is definitely coordinating with DHS, FBI,CIA,ETC.
All of whom will be disheartened when they read this message board in the hopes of egging us on.

Washington, D.C.: Protest hits FEMA, ICE

Published Oct 4, 2007 2:28 AM

Stop the war on Iran before it starts!
In Farsi En Español
Sign the statement View signers
It is with grave concern that we observe the growing threat of a new U.S. war—this time against the people of Iran.
The media is filled with reports of an alleged nuclear threat posed by Iran and the assumed need for the U.S. to take military action. These reports recall the “Weapons of Mass Destruction” stories issued in the months leading up to the war on Iraq.
In the lead up to the illegal invasion of Iraq, the Bush Administration asserted that Iraq possessed massive stockpiles of weapons of mass destruction and that it was capable of launching an attack - nuclear, chemical and biological - on the U.S. within 45 minutes.
President Bush said that the U.S. had to attack immediately, and could not “wait for the final proof — the smoking gun — that could come in the form of a mushroom cloud.” We all know now that this propaganda campaign was a complete fabrication created to justify a war of aggression.
American Iranian Friendship Committee
Everything about us The American-Iranian Friendship Committee (AIFC) was formed in 2004 for the purpose of promoting trust, mutual understanding and peace between Americans, on one hand, and Iranians living in Iran and abroad, on the other. Prompted by concern for the consequences of an on-going anti-Iranian U.S. foreign policy, the AIFC takes steps towards creating an atmosphere that can strengthen healthy dialogue and make friendship possible between the people of the two nations. We invite all democratic-minded individuals to join the committee and help in our efforts at building a movement for promoting peace, ending the unjust sanctions, and preventing a U.S.-NATO war on Iran.

The World Cant Wait organizes people living in the United States to repudiate and stop the fascist direction initiated by the Bush Regime, including: the murderous, unjust and illegitimate occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan; the global war of terror of torture, rendition and spying; and the culture of bigotry, intolerance and greed. This direction cannot and will not be reversed by leaders who tell us to seek common ground with fascists, religious fanatics, and empire. It can only be possible by the people building a community of resistance - an independent mass movement of people - acting in the interests of humanity to stop, and demand prosecution, of these crimes.

The good riddance to Bush rally was held at DuPont Circle, in Washington, D.C. Adam Kokesh of the” Iraq Veterans Against the War” was one of the speakers at the event.

Russian news organization publicises Adam kokesh
Sir, you deserve a beer .. have one on us !
On leaving the Hartford Tea Party.
Please read this through, while the beginning of this letter seems unrelated, it is completely necessary to explain my position.
Recently, while working on a separate project for a patriotic organization, The Gathering of Eagles, I became more familiar with the personal actions of a former Marine named Adam kokesh. It is through the personal knowlege and experience by some of the members of the Gathering of Eagles that Adam Kokesh, the anti-war protester has been involved with activities we call treasonous. We believe it is important to focus our efforts on this man because he is running for Congress in the 3rd district in New Mexico.
In our discovery process and analysis of online documents created by Kokesh himself, along with videos taken by others at his events and with testimony of persons attending these events, it is the obvious conclusion that Adam kokesh admitted freely to asking troops to desert their unit in time of war while visiting an Army base in Ansbach, Germany, and engaged in with demonstrations that became violent by destroying property that housed a Military recruiting center in Washington DC. Protesters at this event faced a small crowd of Americans that included Mothers of active duty servicemen and women and once learning that these women were parents of Military members overseas in Iraq and Afghanistan at that time, the protesters repeated vulgar assertions that these women’s sons should die in combat for serving in this war.
Sadly, actions like this since the Vietnam War are not called what they are: sedition at best or treason at worst. Since Adam Kokesh is a Marine Corps veteran as well as I am, I believe that Kokesh was trained enough as a Marine in operational security and awareness of how his personal actions in uniform and when dressed as a civilian would reflect on military service and was mature enough to know his actions would be viewed and repeated in our national media and international media in such a way that Iraqi resistance forces and Afghanistan Taliban and international Al-Qaeda forces would only view as supporting their efforts in time of war against American and coalition forces. It is a known fact that Osama Bin Ladin announced that he watched the 9/11 attacks on television himself and that he and his forces were pleased and encouraged by what he saw on television. To deny that media accounts of the pains of your enemy aren’t encouraging to those engaged in warfare against you is an immature approach to fighting and winning a military conflict.
To back up my assertions here, I am posting links to these events so the reader can see for themselves these events are true:
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. This article quotes Kokesh extensively.
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. The article below is Adam Kokesh’s personal account of this act in his own words.
Kokesh led demonstration in DC in front of a recruiting station where his public stated goal was to prevent any recruiting from going on that day. Kokeshs 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 of this demonstration here :
The results of his participation in these actions in Washington DC led to an investigation by the United States Marine Corps into Kokesh’s wearing of military uniforms while walking the street in threatening poses pretending to hold a rifle simulating military action against Iraqi civilians. Kokesh posted the e-mail he received from the Marine Corps officer on the Iraq Veterans Against the War website and boasted of receiving this letter and also posted his profane response for the world to see. This again is Kokesh’s own words and testimony on the Iraq Veterans Against the War website. 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.
There are numerous articles more than can be posted, but I will let the reader look for themselves.

Kokesh + IVAW
Kokesh + World Workers Party
What must be explained at this point is why this man is connected to the Hartford Tea Party and how it has lead me to conclude that the Hartford Tea Party and the Connecticut Tea Party are not acting in the best interests of Connecticut citizens or for a national interest concerning their apparent desired candidate, Peter Schiff.
The actions of Kokesh are treason in my eyes. Plain and simple. He freely and repeatedly acted in a way that he gave aid and comfort to the enemy in time of war, and he did so knowing that in today’s world, international media would report his actions and that enemy forces such as Al-Qaeda and Iraqi resistance Mujahadeen monitor American television and print media and would see, even if only by cursory glance, his actions as a leader and participant in these marches, demonstrations, protests, and speaking engagements on college campuses.
On March 16, I received an e-mail from a friend of the Tea Party movement whom I had had previous conversations with concerning the taking over of the Tea Party platforms by those who were not political Conservatives or GOP members as the media falsely reports, but by Ron Paul Libertarians. One such person from Connecticut who was previously working in favor of the Tea Party movement and whose e-mails I used to receive on a regular basis, send out a request for aid to help the Adam Kokesh campaign. The e-mail letter is printed below:
-—— Forwarded Message -——
From: “Jim A” <@yahoo.com> (NOTE: HIS NAME IS WITHELD FOR HIS SAFETY AND SECURITY)
Sent: Monday, March 15, 2010 7:33:49 PM GMT -05:00 US/Canada Eastern
Subject: [ronpaul-769] Adam Kokesh Needs Your Urgent Help!
Read all about it:
Make some phone calls for Adam if you have the time - please?
Thank you for whatever you can do to help,
The sender of this e-mail is not the author of it’s content, but he sent it as a positive effort to help Adam Kokesh. I was stunned. Being involved in the Gathering of Eagles organization and attending these anti-War rallies as a counter protestor to defend America and hold signs that were suportive of our troops, I was well aware of Adam Kokesh before he announced his running for Congress. What I didn’t know was how much the Ron Paul Political machine was supporting him and how far and deep that support went. I mistakenly thoguht it was just a local effort and soon found out the opposite.
I responded to this e-mail and asked if this JIM A was the same Jim A that me and the sender of this e-mail received previous messages from and that was confirmed. The sender of this e-mail mentioned that he thought Jim A was the new campaign manager for Peter Schiff. I did a search on the internet on Peter Schiff’s website and found that was innacurate.
In all my searches for Adam Kokesh I did on the Internet, I do not remember seeing Peter Schiff’s name with his. I realize it was because I was concentrating on the Marxist groups that Kokesh marched with and supported in national rallies.
I did my first GOOGLE search for Kokesh + Schiff was was quite stunned to see the number of connections on web sites between the two. A person is known by the company they keep. A person is also known by who wants to tell others you are a good person or a bad person. Numerous websites that specifically mention connections between Peter Schiff and Adam Kokesh have for the most part only included the names of Ron Paul or his son Rand Paul. And no one else by comparison.
The GOOGLE search terms and link I used were this:
The first page I found was this:
This the very first page of this forum is entirely based on support for Peter Schiff and Adam Kokesh and Rand Paul. ONLY those three persons. While an individual may not know what everyone says about him, he must surely know who he is compared to and why, for this website clearly endorses these three men, it has the campaign website for Peter Schiff at the top of it’s page for donations. Schiff MUST know of this site for that reason alone because he has to account for all campaign donations and his webmaster also has the clear capability to discover who is accessing his website, and in modern times, a responsibility to know who is accessing your website, and that means Schiff KNOWS he is associated with Adam Kokesh.
On July 15, 2009, Peter Schiff was one of the search terms along with Adam Kokesh for this Ron Paul appearance on Judge Napolitano’s web broadcast. If they are not known to each other or do not have common values and goals, why are they jointly advertised with each other?
That link can be found here:
On the following website, videos of Peter Schiff, with search tags that include Adam Kokesh, Ron Paul, Rand Paul and Chris Dodd (someone Schiff has openly opposed, one of the reasons I originally supported him), additional videos also show a hatred of Israel and Jewish interests, calling SarahPalin a Zionist Neocon Warmonger, that Ron Paul is the Tea Party leader-Not Sarah Palin (Neither were leaders, it was street level persons such as myself that made things happen), :
Mentioned specifically on this page are two Schiff videos. Here are the descriptions and links to those videos, along with the search tags for those videos:

Notice that in the second video, one of the search tags is INFOWARS. INFOWARS is an Alex Jones supported group, one of the leading 9/11 truthers who believe, among the many theories proposed by truthers, stories such as that the World Trade Centers were attacked by radio controlled airplanes that had the passengers removed before the collision, and also that explosive charges were placed in the building that caused the actual collapse after the collision and resultant fire. These people are Ron Paul suporters and openly support Peter Schiff and Adam Kokesh.
Remember: You are known by the company you keep, and by those who promote you and by those who wish you ill.
In this video, hosted on that same site http://www.barackobamavideos.net/keyword/kokesh/page/5 , the title is ISRAEL’S HYPOCRASY

It is crystal clear that this individual website is hosted by Anti-semitic persons who hold disparaging views of Jews. Notice also that one of the search terms is GAZA, indicating that this website is favorable of the Palistinian cause, despite the obvious facts of the Palistinians creating homicidal bombers to kill Jews using retarded persons as suicide bombers and also firing over 1000 home made rockets into Israel in the last 2 years. This website thinks that is not worth mentioning, but Israel’s Hypocrasy (sic) is the issue.
While again, a single reference to these issues does prove a movement, I understand that, a logical thinking person would distance themselves from people such as this once this is known unless you hold these views yourself, or if your friends hold these views and you do not want to distance yourself from your friends.
For the record, and for his credit concerning his connections to Ron Paul and Adam Kokesh, Peter Schiff has denounced the 9/11 theories surrounding a conspiracy:
A new Internet search reveals the following about Ron paul and 9/11:
An organization called Student Scholars for 9/11 Truth video taped an inpromtu appearance with Ron Paul and recorded some of his comments. They can be found here:
While Ron Paul has said on TV shows such as Glen Beck that he dismisses the major theories, he openly says there is a coverup of what went on yet refuses to elaborate on just what is covered up. The 9/11 Comission clearly showed that intelligence failures happened because of Clinton era laws that prevented our inteligence agancies from communicating with each other.
On the website CONSPIRACY PLANET, information about Ron Paul and issues similar to this can be found:
Ron Paul has publically said that the CIA has accomplished a coup against America and needs to be taken out:
A direct quote from this conference is as such:
(January 20, 2010) House Rep. Ron Paul says the CIA has in effect carried out a “coup” against the US government, and the intelligence agency needs to be “taken out.”
Speaking to an audience of like-minded libertarians at a Campaign for Liberty regional conference in Atlanta this past weekend, the Texas Republican said: “There’s been a coup, have you heard? It’s the CIA coup. The CIA runs everything, they run the military. They’re the ones who are over there lobbing missiles and bombs on countries...”
I did an Internet search to see if Peter Schiff attended this conference, and found that almost every video of this event where Ron Paul made such a statement, Peter Schiff’s name was one of the main search tags:
One one video, the single specific description for the video reads as such:

This video can be found at the link below:
And here is one prominant website that supports the 9/11 conspiracy theories, calling for a RON PAUL PROVISIONAL ARMY to take over after we investigate the 9/11 events:
Among the other kooky connections to Ron Paul, is a UFO COnnection. I have yet to find the original article, but numerous articles repeat the belief of Ron Paul’s that UFO’s are real. Some of the Ron Paul sites have soeone trying to mock this belief, but the Ron Paul site, DailyPaul.com says this:
This has been repeated again in San Francisco, not known to support conservatives or Libertarians anyways, but associated with Ron Paul out there were UFO enthusiasts mentioned in this article:
How is it that the kookiest ideas are surrounding Ron Paul?
Ron Paul, UFO disclosure, etc... simply nothing more than a pacifier — a distraction!
You are known by the company you keep. By who likes you and who dislikes you. To see repeatedly in these searches the names of 9/11 truther groups such as INFOWARS and RON PAUL and ALEX JONES, ADAM KOKESH connected immediately to Peter Schiff can only bring someone to an immediate conslusion: he is either silent of their excesses for his own political expediency but welcomes their support, or he is totally ignorant of Ron Paul and his supporters. Peter Schiff is surely NOT ignorant of Ron Paul. Peter Schiff is one smart guy, most likely smarter than me, especially money wise. But he surely had to kow who he was being connected to and has done nothing to dismiss the kooks who are endorsing him.
This is why in my previous e-mails to Tea Party Members of Connecticut I repeatedly added in search links or advice on what to search for regarding these issues and Peter Schiff.
I have been asked to leave the Hartford Tea Party. Fair enough. If this is the man that the Hartford Tea Party wishes to promote and support, then I want no part of it.
Peter Schiff is promoted and supported with a known traitor, Adam kokesh, on numerous websites and all the Tea Party members were shown where to see it themselves. What is saddening is the responses I got about it.
You are know by the company you keep? By who supports you? Also by who doesn’t support you. In all this exchange, only one person wrote back to me asking if this information about Kokesh was true or if the links were valid. I am afraid that most of the people who received those e-mails refused to click on the links I provided and that effort was wasted. What I heard was that by exposing the bad connections of Peter Schiff with Truthers, Traitors and UFO chasers, all that mattered was someone who wanted LIBERTY. I was called a traitor for not endorsing someone who endorses a traitor. All that mattered was a candidate that supported liberty. Supporting a Marxist sympathiser who marched with Code Pink, ANSWER, WORLD WORKERS PARTY, SDS is now considered LIBERTY by Libertarians in Connecticut. And I saved that e-mail to prove I was called a traitor to not support Schiff.
Liberty at the expense of supporting someone running on the same ticket as a traitor with no response or denial despite the full year of being connected to him?
Check the dates on these websites, it has been 10 months since Schiff has been connected to Kokesh, and not once has Schiff denounced Kokesh. Not on his official campaign website or anywhere that is online. If he did, the YouTube videos with Kokesh and Schiff’s name would not exist, nor would all the Ron Paul websites with Schiff’s name be with Kokesh.
It would not be there if he denounced him, but instead, on the Schiffforsenate.com website, Schiff allowed the placement of an article written by a John Birch Society author for the New American Magazine to list their support for Schiff, Rand Paul and Adam Kokesh.
That article has been on Peter Schiff’s website for 5 months now. Peter Schiff would not have allowed such a letter to remain on his website unless he had no problem with someone who marched with marxist groups in anti-war demonstrations simulating the murder of innocent people to slander the military.
Schiff’s allowance of this letter promoting Kokesh is a blatant endorsement of Kokesh.
Knowing all of the above, and knowing that the members of the Hartford Tea Party and Connecticut Tea Party have refused to contact me to ask for more information or agree with me, with only 3 exceptions among the group, I must immediately and permanently separate myself from a group that thinks the character of a man as this is acceptable for political office.
No one is perfect. I am way too excitable and emotional for me to consider myself eligible for political office. I am way too blunt and speak my mind too freely. I have seen myself on film and am not always happy at what I see once I said some things. But I am not ashamed at what makes me mad at all. In fact, the things that I get mad at are legitimate. My anger at the issues shows I know what to get mad at. My humor is sometimes gruff and direct.
But the direction I send it is not wrong. Peter Schiff is connected to people who committed treason and has been for almost a full year and the Hartford Tea Party and the Connecticut Tea Party now know it and in the last several days, only 3 people have told me my concerns were right in our most recent series of e-mails.
In a private phone conversation in the last week, I was asked what I thought about the Tea Party announcing the endorsement of Peter Schiff before the republican primary so that the Tea Party movement would appear to be pushing the agenda instead of the media controlling it; a way of the people, the grassroots, taking command instead of responding to media control of the process or GOP Party control of the process. I agreed because I liked Peter Schiff’s economic stance and explanation of what he would do. I did not want anyone in office that had previously held office and that meant I did not want Rob Simmons. I also did not want someone who made her money by supporting shooting steroids into the body of Jocks to entertain 12 year old boys to make her fortune, or knowing that she hired the wife of Connecticut GOP Chairman to work on her campaign, nor do I think she is correct by stating at the Enfield Republican Town Committe meeting where she said she believed in man made Global Warming.
After the last 3 days of finally doing the homework on Peter Schiff that I should of in the first place, I totally remove my endorsement of Peter Schiff and I call on all Patriotic thinking Americans to so also.
I would say that if goes into the wet dream stage.
KOKESH IS CALLING FOR THIS OPENLY ON HIS FACEBOOK SITE
He needs to be in the front of the march.
Aligned with code pink during his antiwar activity. One of my biggest beefs with Ron Paul is he would not disavow his association with Kokesh. Kokesh was once part of an antiwar protest where his group (I’m not saying he himself did this) literally spat on a counter protest group of gold star moms. This puts him right down there with the Westboro gang. Whatever he’s up to, he’s up to no good.
Your best guess: How long would it take to read all of the post AND follow and read the links? I’ll guess 14 hours.
They are plenty stupid enough, especially if he tells them there is free pot at the far end of the bridge.
This skunk has wallowed around with every type of communist scum on the plant. Never consider this man conservative or a Republican.
Maybe in an open carry state capitol but in DC it will just bring bad press.
This is a set-up by Obama and Holder. They would use it as an excuse to confiscate weapons from “dangerous” radicals....which would be everyone with a gun.
"Thus, Palestinian self-determination i.e., right of return is central."
I wouldn't put it past the regime to have a sniper or three waiting to 'ping' this agent provacateur fool, to try and set off the means to martial law under little barry bastard boy's regime.
