  • Rand Paul: American taxpayers funding war on Christianity

    Russia Today ^ | June 14, 2013
    American taxpayers are funding a war against Christianity, Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) said Thursday during an address made at a popular Washington, DC conservative conference. Appealing to a crowd at this week’s Faith and Freedom Conference in the nation’s capital, Sen. Paul said changes need to be made with regards to the expansive foreign aid being spent by the United States to fund countries he claims are critical of the most popular religion in the US. "There is a war on Christianity," Paul said. "Not just from liberal elites here at home, but worldwide. And your government, or more correctly,...
  • Russia Today Accuses Israel of Using 'Hitler Methods

    Arutz Sheva ^ | 4/2/13 | Rachel Hirshfeld
    Russia Today correspondent Abby Martin accused Israel on Saturday of using “Hitler’s methods” against the Palestinian population in order to maintain a “Jewish majority” in the country. Martin, a vehemently anti-Israel correspondent for the Russian state-funded channel, alleged that "Israel is the only country in the world that was paved for a specific group of people that experienced such horrific discrimination and genocide, and for that same group of people to now use Hitler's methods against another minority to maintain a Jewish majority, is insane." The Israeli government's "word just doesn't cut it," she said, asserting the part that "irks"...
  • Zotted Poster and Tea Party founder (ha ha) (Karl Denninger) backs Occupy Wall Street

    10/14/2011 3:17:45 PM PDT · by Beckett08 · 114 replies
    Karl Denninger was one of the founders of the Tea Party back just a few years ago when some concerned conservatives wanted to fire back at the government for what they said was unjust practices. Today, similar sentiments are being echoed by the Occupy Wall Street movement. Is it right to make comparisons between the two groups? Denninger says that, yes, to some degree the comparisons are indeed accurate. The Occupy movement, however, can learn from some of the mistakes that he says the Tea Party succumbed to. “The problem with protests and the political process is that it is...

    A controversial Internet talk show host was arrested at his home in Herndon on Tuesday night after a videotaped July 4 stunt in which he loaded a shotgun in the District’s Freedom Plaza — a violation of the city’s gun laws. Information about the arrest of Adam Kokesh was posted on his blog late Tuesday night. The Herndon Police Department confirmed Wednesday that Mr. Kokesh was arrested on a federal warrant but could not provide information about the nature of the charges. Video of the infraction.

    The home of a gun rights activist who loaded a shotgun in downtown D.C. was being searched by police late Tuesday evening. Adam Kokesh posted a video of himself on the Fourth of July loading a real shotgun with live ammunition at Freedom Plaza in D.C. A search warrant was being executed Tuesday by U.S. Park Police at Kokesh's home in Herndon, Va. Police officers were reportedly searching for the shotgun Kokesh displayed last week, according to Kokesh's producer and roommate Darrell Young.

    The activist who threatened to lead an armed march on Washington July 4 has canceled the event but is urging people to converge on the 50 state capitals to protest gun regulations, according to a recent appearance on an Internet talk show. “Please don’t come to Washington, D.C.,” Adam Kokesh, an Iraq war veteran, urged in an interview on the Pete Santilli Show. “Appeal on a state level. We shouldn’t be begging the government to change. We should be hoping they respect our rights.” In the interview, which was first reported by the Media Matters web site, Kokesh said a...

    It used to be said a picture what worth a thousand words. That’s not entirely true anymore, not with Photoshop. Now a picture is only worth a few words. Mostly, “Is that real?” This is one of the challenges facing us when we get something sent to us that we can’t verify. It is safer not to use it than to destroy our credibility by using phony evidence. We received such a picture when I wrote my first article exposing Adam Kokesh, the person who plans to lead an armed march on Washington DC on July 4th. Someone pasted a...

    When I first heard about plans this coming Fourth of July for an armed protest march from Arlington, Virginia, into and around the heart of Washington, D.C., I was all for it, and excited about it. I even thought I might join it, if the organizer’s stated sufficient numbers (10,000 people with guns) showed up for the event to be attempted. Of course, I learned immediately that the march is supposed to be led by none other than the Alex Jones-like, rabble-rousing Iraq veteran & anti-war activist Adam Kokesh, a person of whom I have been pretty leery during these...

    The Daily Caller ^ | May 13, 2013 | Charles C. Johnson
    Despite his self-proclaimed history of mental instability and post-traumatic stress, one-time congressional candidate and perennial activist Adam Kokesh is organizing a pro-gun rally in which marchers will walk with loaded rifles into Washington from Virginia. “This is now a call for mass civil disobedience on July 4th anywhere in Washington, D.C.,” Kokesh wrote on the event’s Facebook page. “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.” Kokesh, who served as a Marine artillery officer and reservist, attended Claremont McKenna...

    Washington City Paper ^ | May 8, 2013 | Will Sommer
    The July 4 armed march on Washington just got a little more interesting. A day after telling City Desk that he would still try to enter Washington with a loaded gun, rally organizer Adam Kokesh changed tactics. Now, he wants citywide civil disobedience over whatever law participants consider unconstitutional. "This is now a call for mass civil disobedience on July 4th anywhere in Washington, DC," Kokesh writes on his march's Facebook event page. "Break whatever unconstitutional law you choose." Kokesh declined to comment on the move, promising a full announcement next year. But the shift to a citywide strategy seems...

    Responding to news that a libertarian activist is organizing an Independence Day rally in which he hopes to lead a group of people carrying loaded rifles through the District, D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said in a television interview today that her department will meet such a group at the city line. The demonstration is being organized by Adam Kokesh, a former marine who currently hosts an Internet radio show. On the Facebook page announcing the event, Kokesh writes what is essentially a challenge to the Metropolitan Police Department, stating that he expects his group will get the same escort...

    Washington Monthly's Political Animal ^ | May 6. 2013 | Ed Kilgore
    As readers have probably noticed, I’m on something of a campaign the last few days to train a spotlight on the revolutionary rhetoric and gun-brandishing of many Second Amendment activists and “constitutional conservatives,” which has leeched over into standard conservative and GOP messaging to an alarming degree. Like anyone shining a spotlight into previously dark shadows, I’m not always familiar with what I’m seeing. That’s definitely the case with Adam Kokesh, an Iraq War vet and omni-libertarian who is planning a non-violent march of armed citizens on Washington for Independence Day to show, best I can tell, that resistance to...

    I seldom post more than once per day, but I believe this warrants the occasion. I was doing my morning rounds of reading the news and blog posts I read almost every day and came across something that troubles me greatly. It has to do with the push for more gun control, restrictions on the 2nd Amendment and how gun owners are portrayed in the media. If you have read Political Realities for any length of time, you should be aware of my stance on gun control. I do not believe it is a good thing, much less constitutional. I...

    Before we get started on this story, I would like to take a moment to point out that you’d be hard pressed to find any point where I’ve been anything but a staunch defender of the Second Amendment, as I would hope most regular readers know. I’ve taken flack for it from a lot of people this year, ranging from family members to folks in the media. But even approaching it from that sort of position, I’ve got to say that this is a really bad idea. A march on Washington with loaded rifles "Libertarian activist and radio host Adam...

    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 they’ll attend the march. Here’s...

    National Review ^ | Andrew C. McCarthy
    The Tea Party’s limited-government, constitutional heart is in the right place. But it needs much better guidance about how the Constitution works in wartime. The defense-authorization bill currently under congressional consideration contains some unremarkable, largely redundant provisions about the treatment of enemy combatants. Naturally, the now-familiar alliance of leftists and libertarian extremists — self-proclaimed “constitutionalists” all — attacked with their signature “sky is falling” equanimity. On Wednesday, my column addressed some of the more hysterical arguments posited by Fox News analyst Andrew Napolitano. The real action, however, was taking place on the Senate floor, where Tea Party favorite Rand Paul...
