Kokesh released from jail; calls for march on 50 state capitals


Adam Kokesh, 31, is a self-described libertarian and radio host, who’s the organizer and leader of an armed march on Washington, D.C., this July 4, Independence Day, to put government on notice that we won’t be intimidated. (See my post of May 6, 2013, “Iraq War veteran plans armed march on Washington on July 4.”)
Kokesh was a corporal in the United States Marine Corps Reserve and a non-combat veteran of the Iraq War, serving in Falujah in 2004 as a liaison between the U.S. military and Iraqi civilians as a member of the 3rd Civil Affairs Group. He is an outspoken opponent of the U.S. military intervention in Iraq.
On May 5, 2013, Kokesh launched the planned armed march as a group on Facebook, the “Open Carry March on Washington.” He hoped to get 1,000 supporters to march into the nation’s capital with loaded rifles.
On May 19, 2013, at a marijuana “Smoke Down Prohibition” protest in Philadelphia, Kokesh was dragged away by the police, charged with “resisting arrest” and felony assault of a federal officer, and held without bail.
Last Friday, May 24, 2013, Adam Kokesh was released from jail. The day before his release, Kokesh had issued a statement from his cell calling for an “American Revolutionary Army” to march on all 50 State capitals:
“When a government has repeatedly and deliberately failed to follow its own laws, violated the fundamental human rights of its citizens, threatened the sanctity of a free press, created institutions intended to eliminate privacy of communication, waged war at the behest of special interest that threatens the public safety, killed hundreds of children with drone strikes, imprisoned and destroyed the lives of countless individuals for victimless crimes, stifled economic opportunity to maintain the dominance of the financial elite, stolen from the people through an absurd system of taxation and inflation, sold future generations into debt slavery, and abused its power to suppress political opposition, it is unfit to exist and it becomes the duty of the people to alter or abolish that government by whatever means necessary to secure liberty and ensure peace.
A new American revolution is long overdue. This revolution has been brewing in the hearts and minds of the people for many years, but this Independence Day, it shall take a new form as the American Revolutionary Army will march on each state capital to demand that the governors of these 50 states immediately initiate the process of an orderly dissolution of the federal government through secession and reclamation of federally held property. Should one whole year from this July 4th pass while the crimes of this government are allowed to continue, we may have passed the point at which non-violent revolution becomes impossible.
The time to sit idly by has passed. To remain neutral is to be complicit, just doing your job is not an excuse, and the line in the sand has been drawn between the people, and the criminals in Washington, D.C. While some timid souls will say that it is too early, that we can solve this problem through democratic means provided by government, that current levels of taxation are reasonable for the services provided, and that the crimes of this government are merely a tolerable nuisance, it may already be too late.
While there is risk in drastic action, the greater danger lies in allowing this government to continue unchallenged. So if you are content with the status quo, stay home, get fat, watch the fireworks from a safe distance, and allow this Independence Day to pass like any other. But if you see as we see, and feel as we feel, we will see you on the front lines of freedom on July 4th, 2013 for this, The Final American Revolution.”
Kokesh is a controversial figure.
His radio show is on Russia Today. FOTM reader Locke Enlode writes that his two U.S. Marine sons say Kokesh is regarded as a Benedict Arnold, i.e., traitor. Some say he’s an Obama agent and that Kokesh had said on his Facebook:

Work Info
Employer: Obama for America
Position: Revolution Czar

Time Period: March 2011 to present
Description: Fomenting unrest

But I went on Kokesh’s Facebook page and cannot find the above information. See for yourself by going here or https://www.facebook.com/ADAMVSTHEMAN/info.
The FreeAdamKokesh.com website had been set up SIX days before Kokesh was arrested in Philadelphia. Here’s a YouTube video on this (h/t my bud Mark S. McGrew):

I surely hope he doesn’t have an accident or have a heart attack, or suicide like some of our other outspoken advocates in the past.


This is the latest that the dungs are using to discredit an out spoken and VERY well received person of TRUTH. They’re doing it with Rush Limba, and Mark Cleminson also. Trolls go on the blogs and false witness them.


I smell a rat. This guy is trying to create a revolution out of thin air, to serve as a pretext for the creation of martial law.


This just brings to mind the latest “set up”……I figured this when I read that he “answered her calmly and respectfully and said she had something important that should be heard”.   Whatever!   He sure didn’t act so calmly when that guy burst out with “You’re the anti-christ”………..now there’s proof the Pink Code “heckler” was staged by the administration. GEEZE LOUIZE!!!! Is ANYTHING real anymore????!!!! https://www.redstate.com/rottdawg/2013/05/24/wh-planted-the-code-pink-protester/ This really is not a surprise, however….the dots all connect…..around the world to obfuscate the REAL connections…. Medea Benjamin (born Susan Benjamin; September 10, 1952), ran on the Green Ticket in CA and supports the Progressive… Read more »

Doc, I believe Number41 nailed it in your previous post on this traitor in NON-COMBAT veteran’s garb – AGENT PROVOCATEUR!!!, straight from the FSB’s (the former KGB) playbook. And why in the name of God’s Green Earth would a free Adam page be established SIX days prior to his “arrest?!?!?” Any one remember Sandy Hook???? Bueller? Bueller? Bueller? The websites for donations and “talking to your children about Sandy Hook…” were established DAYS BEFORE THAT MASSACRE, as documented on this blogsite. I smell a big pile of steaming feces and the flies are hovering over this rotting carcass of a… Read more »

Doc, the thanks all goes to you for your efforts and those of the FOTM bloggers. The more I read his “grievances,” the more he sounds like Marx and Engels rather than Jefferson, Locke, Franklin, and the other Founding Fathers.This is a dangerous person masquerading behind the flag. Believe me, I have no love lost for the current Chicago Mafia, especially the communistsocialistmarxistleninistmaoist Amercica Destroying/Christian Hating Constitutionally-ineligible SUMBITCH, but I believe Comrade Adam is truly not what he claims to be in the least.


Doesn’t pass the smell test, just like BO! Wow, incredible post – thanks oooooodles!


The man admits in his facebook pages what he is all about. That should be enough to understand that he is a double agent, so to speak. He works for Obama for America. What else do you need to know? His agenda cannot be trusted inasmuch as he works for a regime that is against life, against religious liberty for people of all faiths and thus, must be opposed.


If he does work for obama for America what do they stand to gain by his actions?

Adam has woken up more people than coffee, and deserves alot of credit. My only concern is that it while it may be deserved, and 100% accurate, in general it casts negativity. While it is true our government is tyrannical, our goal our ideal should not be to overthrow and replace one monopoly of force with a better monopoly of force. I feel the primary objective for libertarians such as ourselves is to evolve to eventually replace coercion with voluntarism across the board. Even if our Government was perfect it should be removed from the paradigm of human society, because… Read more »
