Leader of July 4 armed march on D.C. arrested

Two weeks ago, I did a post on radio host and Iraq war veteran Adam Kokesh’s plan to lead an armed march on Washington, D.C., this July 4, Independence Day, to put government on notice that we won’t be intimidated.
In a Ron Paul rally on September 2, 2008, Kokesh had made evident his political views when he declared that “While it is our responsibility now to resist tyranny civilly, while we still can, there may come a time when we will say to the powers that be, be it with your blood or ours we have come to water the tree of liberty … who will stand with me?”
True to his words, 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.
TPTB are seeing to it that the march will not happen.
As reported by Natural News, three days ago, on May 19, 2013, police dragged Adam Kokesh from a “Smoke Down Prohibition” protest in Philadelphia and charged him with “resisting arrest,” which Kokesh denies. This YouTube video of the arrest shows Adam Kokesh clearly NOT resisting, holding his hands up in a surrender posture and trying to maintain his balance while a gang of police drag him away from the event.

The next day, Kokesh was charged with felony assault of a federal officer and is held without bail. (Source)

Kokesh can’t organize the planned armed march from jail. No doubt, the authorities will hold Kokesh until July 4 is past and gone.
Welcome to the Soft Tyranny of Obama’s America.

Update (May 27, 2013):

Adam Kokesh has been released from jail. He’s now calling for marches on all 50 state capitals. See my post “Kokesh released from jail….”

All the more reason that “there may come a time when we will say to the powers that be, be it with your blood or ours we have come to water the tree of liberty”.

Leave the Obama tribe to show the world what they really are and represent and they will undo themselfs, but we are preaching to the choir, how do we show the other half what they are and we this is going?

Many believe Kokesh to be a fraud, a dangerous schill.

Mr. Kokesh is a shill, at best, and much much worse. His radio show was on RT – Russia Today. HELLO!?! Any one out there with any sense (common or otherwise) would see him for what he is … the modern day version of John Kerry and his dispicable display of treason, all for the cause; and that cause is NOT for the Liberty and Freedom provided in the Constitution but what his “handlers” tell him from the FSB.

Two of my sons are Marines, and the mere mention of his name and his ilk are enough to bring on a tirade of contempt and threats of extreme prejudice because these Benedict Arnold’s hide behind the American flag and their military service to advance an alternative agenda, all in the name of Liberty and Freedom? Simply serpents serving Satan and the cause of evil, in my opinion and many others. Also, think on it for a nanosecond… 1000 OPENLY ARMED men descending on DC, the no gun zone of the Western World and he’s just gonna walkl right up… Read more »

What are the rest of you going to do? I support Adam and the march. If turns bad it will be the government slaughtering it’s citizens. Stand and be counted. Are you going to ask, pretty please, mat we have our rights back? Peaceful protest ends with police beatings shootings and prepper spraying. MLK, Kent State, OWS, freedom riders, etc

So are you going? Is Adam giving you permission to be in his formation? Are you going to pass Adam’s inspection to be in his formation after he gives you permission to march? Are you going to not record anything while you are in the march like Adam says? If you are going to leave if met with resistance (like Adam says) why go? I can guarantee you that crossing that bridge with loaded weapons puts you on the only ground the federal government has a legal means to defend. It gives those agents a real good reason to “just… Read more »

Well stated Number41. Benedict Arnold meets John Kerry 2.0. Advance with this charlatan at your own peril. If he were a person of honor and character, why would he place restrictions on filming/recording what his group can say and do? Because the truth is the great disinfector and he has no place for the truth. Only stunts to advance his communist funded agenda.Problem solved. Problem stayed solved.

The video clearly shows the police grabbing him, manhandling him and arresting him while he was speaking. You cannot arrest someone only for resisting arrest. What was the first charge for which you were arresting them that they resisted? You may be next. He may be crazy but that does not mean they aren’t trying to shut him up for criticizing Obama.

Number 41. I am going to the march. I do not own a gun. I will come armed with my camera because if this get any media attention it will be screwed with and spliced. This is standing up for your rights. Not just the second amendment, but all of our rights. People want to say this is madness, but our country was founded by the brave minutemen that fired the “shot heard around the world.” We, as me and the rest owe our very lives and the right to be here. These very real men that stood and took… Read more »

” I do not own a gun.”
Now that’s just funny.
“It is only common sense to vet the armed marchers.”
Really? With what? A background check? How is Adam going to “vet” 1000 strangers? What will he tell them? I really believe in not infringing on your right to keep and bear arms, except around me? How will Adam identify the FBI-handled-for-years-but-we-need-the-public’s-help-identifying-them patsy that shows up?

Can’t have it both ways. It seems you do believe in government conspricies, what with the FBI involvement keeping us safe. Don’t go to the march. Don’t stand up. go on back home, Hide in your basement and just do what the government wants you to do. All evil needs to reign is for good men to do nothing. You owe your right to live here to the brave minutemen. I don’t own a gun, but I do love the bill of rights and the constitution. Keep on and show us all just how ignorant of American history most of… Read more »

You are right, you can’t have it both ways. You can’t stand on the sideline and call everyone else cowards for not marching with a gun. That’s called an Agent Provocateur. Kind of like Adam with his mic in Philadelphia telling everyone else to “break the law and smoke it anyway”.
I know my history well enough. Lexington and Concord didn’t go picking a fight. It came to them.

What is wrong with you? The minutemen fought for freedom. We haven’t gone looking for it either. It is here, staring you in the face and you do nothing. What is that except a coward? You are invited to get out from behind your keyboard warriors and come unarmed. But you won’t do that.

“What is wrong with you?” You mean why don’t I just swallow your appeal to the Founders and run off to DC and follow a guy I’ve never even met before (who by the way is in federal prison so I’m not sure who is “vetting” the march)? Or, why I don’t just agree with you despite that you seem to have not thought through (and would rather ignore) all of the concerns I mentioned about the march? Look man, you are down to name-calling at this point. I don’t trust Adam based on what I have seen. If you… Read more »

ding, ding, ding! We have a Winner! Agent Provacateur is the correct identification for this moron and all those that will blindly follow him. Excellent posting Number41. And by the way, “armed” and “peaceful” protest is an oxymoron and a recipe for a stupendous clusterf**k. Thus, Agent Provacateur is the bell ringer. Nicely done.

oh yeah,and if you want go back and listen to the information he gives about the march he wants. Not just for you but all of us.What are you going to do when the military and/or police kills these people? Say, well, they were just doing their jobs. Like the SS explained in the Nazi trials, “but I was just following orders.” A lot of you don’t like him because he smokes pot. IT’S JUST A PLANT and if you want to get upset because it is your Christian faith, I suggest you going back and read all about what… Read more »

“oh yeah,and if you want go back and listen to the information he gives about the march he wants.” I only read what is on his website. That is the information I am going by. “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.” Unless of course, you intimidate us, in which case we will cower in submission to tyranny: “2) We are not allowed to enter the District and will halt the formation well before the line at which… Read more »

I believe you shouldn’t have to have a leader, stand up for your own rights. I have said over and over that this is bigger than one man, but Adam has the big hairy balls to do it. What are you going to do to protect your rights if this is so wrong?

1wanderingtruthseeker, no offense, but you sound like either a provocateur (spelling?) or someone incredibly naive. Number 41 is making some excellent points that are just bouncing right off your head. If you don’t know who the sucker is at the card table, it’s you. If you don’t know who the patsy at this event is, maybe it’s you…

Ok, what’s your and his plan? Yes, I stand up for what I believe in and that’s the constitution and the bill of rights. Call me a shit starter, I don’t care. But we are losing our rights one by one and the government is not listening to we the people. I believe in the Bible to. It tells us what will happen, but some many, including Christians, who will not stand and put an end to the evil going on in our country. Muslims rule the day here and they worship a different God then I do. Do you… Read more »

I have a youtube of Sheria law that certain people have said the United States should be under law. It is a vid. taken somewhere in it looks like Africa or somewhere, of a woman being buried straight up and down. Buried with her head above ground. Of course she had a scarf over her hair. They put a blindford on her and lined they whole villiage up and everyone there threw big rocks at her head. They were having fun. Almost a party. They kept throwing them even after she was dead. The whole villiage. This is the fate… Read more »

“The Bible tell you to grid yourself up in the armour of God. “ Ok, show me where the bible says that and is talking about taking up physical weapons and killing people. Don’t change the subject again. Show us where that is. “what does the word of God tell you to do?” Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang… Read more »

Why would Adam put himself in a position to be arrested a month and a half before his big “F-You, Government” march? And for such small potatoes as the Smoke Down Prohibition? I’m no strategic genius, but even I would know enough to lie low before an announced offense…unless, of course, it were to serve some purpose.

I had no idea what a tool this guy is. While I stick by the original quote (‘The tree of liberty sometimes has to be watered with the blood of despots and patriots’), I certanly don’t want to be associated with ANYONE associated with the POS or his minions.
