Massive Government Cover-Up In Virginia? (Brandon Raub)
Forbes/Revolution PAC ^ | 9/10/12 | Lawrence A. Hunter

Posted on 09/09/2012 8:03:18 AM PDT by lward99

On September 6, 2012, Revolution PAC, which I chair, submitted Freedom-of-Information-Act (FOIA) requests to eight state and local agencies and offices of the Commonwealth of Virginia demanding release of all information and communications relating to the Brandon J. Raub case. Mr. Raub, a former, decorated Marine who served with distinction in Iraq and Afghanistan, was kidnapped on August 16 by a joint strike force of Virginia and Federal “law-enforcement” agents, after which they tried to “disappear” him into the Virginia psychiatric gulag without charging him with any wrongdoing.

What did Raub do to deserve this abuse and torment by the government? He posted comments on Facebook that were critical of the government, and on a private Facebook page, to boot. It was only by the courageous efforts of his mother, a dedicated lawyer for liberty (John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute), and widespread protest about this abuse of government power by average people across the nation that Raub was saved from being stashed away and subjected to psychotropic drugs and brainwashing by government shrinks.

A quote from the Dept. of “Just-us”:

Eric holder : “ ...Due Process and Judicial process are not one and the same, particularly when it comes to national security. The Constitution guarenteees Due process, it does not guarentee Judicial process . “

Do we have to be as patient as we have been through “Fast and Furious” in this case too... ?
Let the Civil lawsuits proceed !

A page from the old Soviet Union’s KGB textbook. I’ll bet it brought a tear to Vladimir Putin’s eye as he remembered the good old days in Russia as he read this account of a U.S. Marine’s shameful arrest for speaking out against Obama’s Communist government.

Where was this story publicized? Government run media buried it...which would make Pravda proud, too.

If this is true, and not the paranoind rantings of a black helicopter sighter, it’s frighening. If not, then maybe the author needs help.

True and verified.

It isn’t as bad as this, in fact... It’s worse.

This is the author - Larry Hunter

The Contract with America was a document released by the United States Republican Party during the 1994 Congressional election campaign. Written by Larry Hunter, who was aided by Newt Gingrich, Robert Walker, Richard Armey, Bill Paxon, Tom DeLay, John Boehner and Jim Nussle, and in part using text from former President Ronald Reagan’s 1985 State of the Union Address, the Contract detailed the actions the Republicans promised to take if they became the majority party in the United States House of Representatives for the first time in 40 years. Many of the Contract’s policy ideas originated at The Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank.[1]

My FRiends, this is just a test case - just like when developing a new product such as an iphone or a car or a new process such as filing for government aid.

After a design or process has been agreed to, a feasability model is generated and tested in the lab.

Once the initial bugs and wrinkles are ironed out in the lab, the next step is a field trial, in which a limited rollout into the planned working environment is executed. The case in point is a perfect example of this stage in development of the DPMP (ie “Dangerous Persons Management Process”).

What we have seen taking place at airports by the TSA under the smoke screen of “making air travel safer”, is the laboratory testing (in plain view) of the insidious “show me your papers” process that will eventually be used on EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE.

If you're skeptical about this process, might I remind y'all that TSA is already running field trails via random checks on interstate highways and entry point checks of all attendees at high school proms of all places (you know, that hotbed of anti-US terrorism perpetrated by 18 year olds who can barely spell the word and whose primary goals in life are to: (1) somehow graduate and (2) get laid as often as possible and not necessarily in that order.)

Once the field tests have been completed and reviewed and any remaining bugs corrected, the product/process is rolled out for general use.

So, coming soon to a street corner wherever you might be are TSA searches, internet and personal conversation monitoring, FBI managed facial recognition, activity monitoring via drones, license plate recognition/vehicle tracking, and via the NDAA Act, indefinite & no warrant incarceration or assassination, depending on the prevailing mood the day one’s “transgressions “ for any activity deemed a threat are brought to the attention of the POTUS or his/her duly anointed lackeys.

Welcome to the future where Personal Liberty has become a relic of the “old days”.

This is the test case to show how the public will react to government violation of the First Amendment. Well lab rats, how do you feel?

Dave try to keep up. This has been all over the news for over a week. Its all true. Law enforcement never has tried to deny it. They were just suprised that anyone squawked about it. If you have any lingering doubts go view the youtube video of Raubs kidnapping for yourself.

Nice response — worthy of a broader public exposure, IMO —

The government can now seize property without proof of any wrong doing on it and can throw citizens behind bars and into treatment centers without any process. Welcome to the New Amerika.

Are you referring to the stolen gold coins story? The coins were never released, therefore they had to have been stolen. The government never gave up the ownership. That one? The Raub story has been out a while try http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2922201/posts 8/23/2012 ~ then look up LIMP BIZKIT~ he posted bunch of their lyrics on his board ~ and if the ‘fibbies’ didn’t know what that was about (quite likely) he was on his way to the booby-hatch for observation. BTW, Van jones didn’t get locked up for his “truther” beliefs.

It was all over Free Republic. That's why I love FR: you read and hear stories the major media outlets bury. It's a lot more important to keep up with what's posted on FR than on other news aggregators or forums.

It’s true Dave . The DoJ & the local PD grabbed the guy & stuck him in a Psych hospital on a involuntary mental evaluation . The paper work was a joke citing nothing as it had been left blank .

If I were a returning vet I would get off the grid if possible, but though benefits need to arrive and such I would at the least set up diversions, set up some sort of alternate but legal address, because Obama has indeed penned into motion to aggressively swoop down on returning veterans and possibly a certain list of all veterans to round them up, because these would be the first to strike back at an illegal government.

I will repeat myself, they are targeting those that have the mindset, the training and the patriotism to fight against an illegal regime.
