Internet radio host and former RT presenter Adam Kokesh is hoping to get 1,000 people to march on Washington, D.C. this coming July 4 – armed with loaded rifles. Their plan is to gather on the Virginia side of the Potomac, then march across the bridge with loaded rifles slung over their shoulders. Here’s their Facebook message:
On the morning of July 4, 2013, Independence Day, we will muster at the National Cemetery & at noon we will step off to march across the Memorial Bridge, down Independence Avenue, around the Capitol, the Supreme Court, & the White House, then peacefully return to Virginia across the Memorial Bridge. This is an act of civil disobedience, not a permitted event. 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. We are marching to mark the high water mark of government & to turn the tide. This will be a non-violent event, unless the government chooses to make it violent. Should we meet physical resistance, we will peacefully turn back, having shown that free people are not welcome in Washington, & returning with the resolve that the politicians, bureaucrats, & enforcers of the federal government will not be welcome in the land of the free.
Whatever the merits of making an armed statement of intent to the Federal Government, it should by now be clear to most thinking Americans that gun control is a side issue that is of no real concern to the government. No new gun control measures have passed since the Sandy Hook Massacre. However, in the wake of the Boston Bombings, ‘CISPA’ has edged closer to becoming law. The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act “helps the U.S government investigate cyber threats and ensure the security of networks against cyberattacks”. In short, the government understands that the real battleground is ‘winning the hearts and minds of the American people’ by tightening control of the internet through ‘cyberwarfare’ that targets dissidence against its authority.
Adam Charles Kokesh is an interesting character. He has his own Wikipedia page, where we read:
Kokesh was a corporal in the United States Marine Corps Reserve and is a veteran of the Iraq War. He is an outspoken opponent of the U.S. military intervention in Iraq and has received media attention related to anti-war protest activities. He is the son of Charles Kokesh, a Santa Fe venture capitalist, founder of a firm called Technology Funding, and owner of the Santa Fe Horse Park.
He brought home a pistol from Iraq in 2004 in violation of military rules, which prevented his return for a second Iraq tour.
That seems to me like a fairly innocuous offence to prevent valued soldiers – especially one that volunteered for service in Iraq – from continuing active tours of duty.
In no time at all, Kokesh became a fairly high-profile media personality on the alternative news circuit, an outspoken anti-war activist, 9/11 Truther, Ron Paul supporter, etc, etc.
The following information is gleaned from the outstanding documentary about the 1995 Oklahoma City Bombing, A Noble Lie.
Short for ‘PATRIOT CONSPIRACY’ – PatCon was an undercover FBI operation launched around 1991. Modelled after COINTELPRO, which officially ended in 1971 (yeah right!), the idea was to infiltrate every militia group, every neo-nazi group, in fact – every single domestic group that was in any way critical of the government – by placing a combination of paid informants and sheep-dipped agents inside all of these groups.
By the time this counter-insurgency program was active, they had sent a young Tmothy McVeigh to Camp Grafton for explosives training in preparation for his role in the Oklahoma City Bombing. More than that, however, the CIA created a ‘terror cell’ with other ATF and FBI informants and named it the Ayran Republican Army, members of which McVeigh hung around with in Elohim City in Oklahoma.
This is what McVeigh was doing during the few months for which there is ‘no record’ prior to the OKC bombing. Besides explosives training, this quiet, obedient soldier developed a ‘legend’ for himself so that by the time he resurfaced in Oklahoma, he is playing the role of ‘raving anti-government activist’. In short, McVeigh was ‘sheep-dipped’. He never ‘left the army’. There are no discharge papers because he wasn’t ‘discharged’. He was selected for Special Ops. McVeigh was even accidentally filmed at Camp Grafton in North Dakota during this time.
Why he agreed to speedy execution remains somewhat mysterious for now, but the fact that he was visited repeatedly by notorious mind control hypnotist and CIA shrink Louis Jolyon West (of MK-Ultra and Sirhan Sirhan fame), coupled with his rigid obedience to the government he believed he was serving, meant that he was ‘a good soldier’ to the very end.
Just something to keep in mind.
