Skip to comments.Wow. Marine ARRESTED for This Facebook Post About Obama
Posted on 12/20/2014 2:47:44 PM PST by goodn'mad
Brandon Raub is a veteran of the United States Marine Corps who decided to post critical opinions about Barack Obama on Facebook. What happened to him then will strike fear into the hearts of any good American and make them wonder what country theyre living in.
According to the Rutherford Institute, Raub was arrested by a swarm of FBI, Secret Service agents and local police, and detained without charges for mental evaluation.
The detention, its alleged, was done under a federal program codenamed Operation Vigilant Eagle. The program is intended to surveil former veterans who publicly express opinions critical of the government.

On a side note it is interesting that I caught this post this morning. It occurred to me that the time will come when they will make an all out attempt to outlaw the Bible. They've been successful to a degree. If they can ever outlaw arms from the sanctity of peoples private homes, I predict that the Bible can't be far behind. But as long as people can access the truth via the Bible and yes, the internet, an out of control federal government can never control our thoughts, not completely. Socialism, liberalism, communism have been major disasters where ever they have been tried. They can't work because they run contrary to human nature, natural law and God's law. Remember how the Soviet Union imploded? And....look at Detroit. Bottom line...give them enough rope and eventually they will hang themselves. Pie in the sky young people may vote people like Obama into office but as the impact of their policies become so evident until even a blind idiot can see them, they may be reversed.
The pendulum has not really started swinging the other way. At least not yet. The full ramifications of obamacare haven't settled in yet, but unless this thing is changed or repealed, it will. And people are getting tired of the government's overreach, run away spending, and attempts to tax the middle class and rich out of existence. The Tea Party is a backlash against this. I don't know how much will be left of the country once this happens. And, Dear Lord, I don't see any buffers standing in the way of Obama despite the last election. Too bad most Republican leaders seem to be in bed with Obama on illegal immigration and obamacare. But the truth is a powerful thing. The Chinese have a proverb, "May you live in interesting times." We are living in interesting times. Let's keep looking up. When all is said and done, our redemption draweth nigh.
this jumped out of his posting:
“September Eleventh was an inside job”
who knows how that became his focus
I guess I could be on that list also.
The title says “for this Facebook post”, then later in the body it states that the post is one of his posts. I would like clarification on what post brought his detention.
this story is a couple of years old, and it’s probably not someone we want to champion. he was charged with sex crimes against a minor last year, which was about a year after he was zapped by the gubmint for criticizing The Messiah.
Yes, me too. I’m retired military and spoke my opinions about Bill Clinton and his ilk. I left my rank out of it. Never tried to force anyone. Just spoke the truth as I saw it. I kept expecting to get hammered but never was.
I know. That was the only sour note in anything he wrote. I thought everything else was spot on.
More data please...
Oh. Okay. This is a little confusing. Someone posted the article on Facebook and I reposted it there. The link should take you directly to the original source.
Thank Goodness we have a first and second amend.............Oh wait! Never mind. Our press and media disregards those concerns.

These various 'isms' were never intended to 'work'. They were merely the excuse for slavery, impoverishment and mass slaughter. Those who do this regards human beings a little more than, and quite often less than beasts.
In the times we live in, the government will and can frame a person. Was the man convicted? Everyone of us COULD have a charge such as this brought against us. They can and have done this by introducing posts or pictures on our home computer, laptop or cell phone. Sheryll Atkinson is witness and testament to the literal reach of the govt.
I wasn’t aware of that. Sounds like the guy is a loose cannon but even loose cannons have rights under the Constitution. They are more limited for those who serve in the military. But the point isn’t that this guy is a role model, the point is that if the government can do it to him and get away with it, they can do it to us as well. We need to take a stand where we can against such government overreach. It will become more common if they get away with it.
One day I asked my dad if he had gotten a package I mailed him? He explained he could only get his mail after the local FBI finished reviewing it, which was about once every three weeks.
I dont suspect that this “incident wiil get into “rotation” in the old line media any time soon.
:”Operation Vigilant Eagle. is a “new one” on me.
why would anyone want to be more vigilant regarding veterans than anyone else??
So what did he post that drew government attention?
