    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.

    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...

    One of the advantages of having fought conservative battles in the blogosphere for a decade and in traditional media for more than two decades is that I never forget a fraudster. Many gullible gun-rights activists have been promoting a July 4th armed march on Washington organized by Adam Kokesh. Just stop it. I’m also flabbergasted at others on the Right who are either ignorant or have forgotten Kokesh’s sordid history with Iraq Veterans Against the War.

    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...

    Last week, Medea Benjamin, head of the radical anti-war group Code Pink, was arrested along with Adam Kokesh for dancing at the Jefferson Memorial. On June 4, 2011, she returned to hold a 'free speech dancing demonstration', so we went to check it out. During the protest, the group claimed they were trying to 'praise' Thomas Jefferson. However, it was clear given the group’s history- and the events that happened just days before- they wanted to draw attention to their organization. While the scene played perfectly into the script they were going for- minus arrests- it did leave some tourists...

    Santa Fe New Mexican ^ | Tuesday, June 01, 2010 | Steve Terrell
    Republicans in the 3rd Congressional District decided to stick with a traditional GOP conservative instead of a young, Ron Paul-style libertarian to run against incumbent U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Luján. Tom Mullins, a Farmington oilman and political newcomer, easily defeated Adam Kokesh of Santa Fe. Kokesh was an unusual candidate from the start. He was endorsed by Paul, a congressman from Texas who ran for president in 2008, and was embraced by members of Paul's nationwide "Liberty Movement." Kokesh, a Marine who fought in Iraq, had gained nationwide recognition for being a combat veteran opposing the war. He was escorted...

    Rand Paul, son of Texas Rep. Ron Paul and a favorite of the Tea Party movement, has built a big lead over Secretary of State Trey Grayson in the race for the GOP Senate nomination in Kentucky, according to a SurveyUSA poll conducted April 9-11. The race has been depicted as a test of the movement's influence, pitting a candidate trying to capitalize on the voter anger it reflects against an establishment Republican who has won re-election to his position three times. Grayson has fought back with TV ads honing in on Paul's "strange ideas," such as saying "Paul even...

He’s running as a Republican in the primary, which is interesting considering his many affiliations with Marxist and liberal organizations, like CODEPINK, A.N.S.W.E.R., and of course, the Iraq Veterans Against the War. He’s a liar and a phony who has been arrested multiple times and encouraged soldiers in Germany to go AWOL. Yet now, he parades himself as some kind of Constitutional crusader.

    The Third Congressional District of New Mexico now has an official signatory of the ATR Taxpayer Protection Pledge. Recently, Republican challenger Mr. Adam Kokesh signed the ATR Pledge becoming the first candidate in the race to do so. Cook Political Report classifies the seat as a D+7 on the PVI index. The seat is currently held by Democratic Congressman Ben Lujan, who was elected in 2008. Though the PVI index favors the incumbent, there is certainly a long way to go in this contest. As a pledge signer, Mr. Kokesh has made a commitment to the taxpayers in New Mexico...
