Government Criminality & Illegitimacy On Display: Adam Kokesh is a political prisoner, currently being held by armed gunmen not in North Korea, Cuba, or some bassackwards corrupt banana republic, but rather in the alleged land of the “free”. Welcome to the brave new world, the Union of Soviet Socialist America; home of the largest gulag system and the most humans locked up in cages in the world.
Marine veteran and libertarian activist extraordinaire Adam Kokesh is planning a peaceful yet armed march on D.C. to test the will of tax-devouring authoritarians infesting the capital city to enforce the unconstitutional laws banning allegedly free people from openly carrying firearms and on Independence Day no less; Huzzah!
I heard the warnings of Lew Rockwell regarding the risks of an armed march on D.C… I respect Lew Rockwell and his warning against this action is well noted, although I strongly disagree with his assessment that such a march is “not libertarian”. Certainly the libertarian way (and the most effective way) is peaceful persuasion and disobedience. However, I see no inconsistency or deviation from this principle in what Adam has announced; an organized citizen’s march at sling arms to Washington D.C. from Virginia. I also heard the thoughts of Alex Jones, who is sympathetic to the cause but fearful that government goons will attempt use this opportunity for a false flag to blame on “home grown extremist” gun owners participating in the event, or perhaps attempt to infiltrate with agent provocateurs to foment criminal activity amongst less intelligent and/or vulnerable participants as is their MO. Of course there are such risks. However, the government runs the risk of over reacting and in the process further alienating/angering millions of gun owners by worst case (god forbid) martyring participants in the march which will only further undermine the government’s credibility & legitimacy.
Notwithstanding the many good people in government (most of whom are compartmentalized), the institution of government is completely, criminally out of control. The American sheople now accept as normal a level of government intrusiveness, abuse and TYRANNY that trivializes the early American grievances against King George. Someone needs to stand up and rekindle the spirit of the American Revolution. Adam Kokesh is taking this stand and I salute him for it.
There are literally thousands of examples of willful government stupidity, waste and abuse all over the country on a daily basis; evidence that America is less and less the “land of the free, home of the brave” is blatant. What can be done about it? Spread the word. These incidents need to be highlighted, shared, tweeted, posted to facebook, etc. The perpetrators, to the extent they are known, need to be made public; their photos, contact information etc published so that pressure can be brought to bear through a tsunami of social media driven ridicule; alienation and ostracism. This is not a call to violence. However, there MUST be consequences and fear of consequences. Back in the day, abusive public officials would be tarred & feathered. More on this unbelievable story from the New York Post.
Yesterday, April 4th, back in 1968, Martin Luther King was murdered by the government. This is not conspiracy theory, this is CONSPIRACY FACT.
The largely anti-gun/anti-self defense establishment media derisively refers to them as “vigilantes”, but Mexican citizens who have suffered nearly 60,000 deaths in the war on certain drugs, caught between violent drug cartels and corrupt government, have been organizing self defense groups/citizen militias to protect themselves.
Fed up with instability, kidnappings, and chaos caused by criminal gangs, citizens groups have organized, taken over towns, arrested public officials and police for corruption to restore order and protect themselves. Who could blame them? These are not “vigilantes”, which connotes the unseemly act of lowly mundanes “taking the law into their own hands” (i.e. without sanction from their parasitical overlords), these are businessmen, farmers, and everyday people.
There is no better real world example of the importance of the citizen’s right to bear arms, in a nation where guns are outlawed no less.

You take a mortal man
And put him in control
Watch him become a god
Watch peoples heads a ‘roll
A ‘roll, a ‘roll
Just like the pied piper
Led rats through the streets
We dance like Marionettes
Swaying to the symphony of destruction…
Statists don’t like Bitcoin for obvious reasons.. The anonymity, the lack of government “oversight” i.e. control, the independence from central banksters, and most importantly, the idea that Bitcoin is effective in alluding the insatiable thievery of spendthrift governments who claim ownership over the fruits of the people’s labor by force, with or without our permission; this anarcho-currency is frightening to statists. Witness the sniveling BBC video on Bitcoin below. Every aspect of Bitcoin that terrifies statists should motivate lovers of liberty to support it. I just downloaded a wallet. Excelsior!!
