Brandon Raub A Victim Of “Pre-crime Detention”?

Brandon Raub Brandon Raub a victim of “Pre crime detention”?

Interrogated by FBI and Secret Service agents, thrown to the ground, handcuffed, and driven off by local police who maintain he was never really “under arrest”, Marine Sergeant Brandon Raub was finally freed from a psychiatric hospital on Thursday after Circuit Court Judge Allan Sharrett dismissed a petition of involuntary commitment on the grounds that it was “…so devoid of any factual allegations that it could not be reasonably expected to give rise to a case or controversy.”

In fact, that petition, filed by the Chesterfield Police for the purpose of holding Raub in the John Randolph mental facility, was BLANK!

On Thursday the 17th, Raub’s Chesterfield County, Virginia home was invaded by minions of federal law enforcement and his hometown police department as a result of entries on the Marine’s Facebook page that the government deemed “…ominous posts talking of a coming revolution.”

An attorney from the Rutherford Institute, a Charlottesville civil liberties group, went to the mental facility to which Raub had been committed by a local judge acting in accord with the wishes of federal law enforcement authorities. “For government officials to not only arrest Brandon Raub for doing nothing more than exercising his First Amendment rights but to actually force him to undergo psychological evaluations and detain him against his will goes against every constitutional principle this country was founded upon,” said Rutherford Executive Director John Whitehead after interviewing the Marine.

Raub’s “crime” is in stating that the government is not telling the truth about the 9/11 attacks; that the nation is being run by an evil, anti-American group of political and financial insiders; and that a revolution must soon take place in order to re-establish the constitutional rights of the American public. These beliefs led Raub to post opinions on his Facebook page that federal agents contend were “terrorist in nature.”

But as Whitehead sees it, “ Raub was targeted for doing nothing more than speaking out against the government.” In fact, the American people should be far more concerned about the fact that “…government officials are apparently monitoring citizens’ private Facebook pages and arresting people with whom they disagree.” For although an FBI spokesman said the agency did not do any Facebook snooping, many of the Raub posts about which the Bureau claimed to have received numerous “complaints” had been entered on a “closed Facebook page” which Raub had “…just created and that had only three members,” one being Raub’s sister.

In 2009, the Department of Homeland Security announced the beginning of a “Media Monitoring Initiative.” Thanks to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by the Electronic Information Privacy Center (EPIC), it was discovered the DHS had hired General Dynamics to monitor everything from major media to Twitter and Facebook for “…reports that reflect adversely on the US Government [or] DHS.” At the time, Janet Napolitano lied about the true purpose of this Department program, but information gathered by EPIC in the lawsuit made it clear Obama’s minions were scanning public websites for evidence of disloyalty to and criticism of the Obama Administration.

With neither charge nor warrant, Brandon Raub was handcuffed and removed to a mental facility for “…doing nothing more than speaking out against the government.” Clearly, such cases are designed to intimidate future critics of Barack Obama or any would-be federal dictator. And the “pre-crime detention” suffered by Raub is a stark warning to each American that self-censorship must be considered preferable to imprisonment. Nice folks in Washington, DC.

  1. hmm I wonder if Obama is going to go back on his word about not using NDAA now. It wouldn't surprise me if the Raub Family, and the lawyer suddenly "Disappeared".

    Oh there should be a line of ambulance chasing "lawyers" a mile long waiting to take this kid's case on. No. I do not accept his "version" of the 9/11 attacks, but I DO stand in defense of his right to express those warped opinions. The larger danger here is from Janet INCOMPETANO and her communist thug agency. They have precisely 73 days to "monitor" us, then, with the final vote tally, the dismantling of the communo-socialist dream of America will begin in earnest. Monitor away cowards. Monitor awa :)

    Assuming there are already a bunch of FEMA camps, they are going to need a lot more! These are views that are held by about 1 out of every 3 people I talk to!

    • Tired Lady says:

      Aunt Jane: No more ASSUMING please. I have seen photo's of these FEMA CAPMS, as well as photo's of the RAILWAY CARS WITH HANDCUFFS WELDED TO THE HOLD BARS. You know what I mean, the bars people who are standing hold onto for safety. I don't know if I still have those e-mails, but will look through all my e-mail files to see if I have. Will get back to you, if I find them, witheither a url or my email addy, so I can send them to you.

      • The FEMA camps have been thoroughly debunked. I have been at more than a few of the supposed locations, and there are no camps there. The 'famous' aerial photo of one is in reality a North Korean prison camp, that someone stuck with a FEMA label.
        That being said, I don't doubt that Zero would love to lock up all his opposition. It is an armed populace that keeps him from trying. That is why he will do his best to eliminate the 2nd Amendment if he is re-elected.

    • Oh & you think Americans are going to line up like the Jews did in Germany did ??? ” In a “Fat Ladies Ass”!!!

  6. di from Oregon says:

    Yup, Brandon is a true patriot, we all would overthrow this current regime if given the chance to do it legally. I am not afraid of obummer, I understand he is a narcissist which is a mental disorder, besides being a moral degenerate. We all have more honor than he has in his little finger.

    • Tired Lady says:

      Di from Oregon: You have it a little backwards Di. WE have more honor in OUR little finger than obummer has in his ENTIRE BODY. Not being picky here my friend, just wanted to straighten the record a little. I too live in Demcrap world Oregon.

  7. It's clear that America's federal, state & local police
    enjoy ruffing people up. Some of the worst thugs wear
    police badges…

    I keep half-expecting these thugs to come into my home and drag me off. I have a tendency to speak what's on my mind. I was born American and was always taught that I could say whatever I wanted without fear of reprisals. Not so anymore. These clowns had no business hauling Brandon Raub away for ANYTHING!!! He, too, is an American! Thank God they had a judge who still believes in the Constitution and America.
    God save the U.S.A.!!!

    • disgusted says:

      USAForever48, you and me both. I speak my mind, and since it is a habit I’ve had since I was a little girl, not much has changed about me, nor will it change. I didn’t want this THING in office, nor anything he was “giving out” to begin with, and I still don’t want him/it in office, nor anything he is “giving out for free”! I don’t beleive anything is free, there is ALWAYS a catch or two. Play now, pay later sort of deal, and this deal is with the Son of The Devil, if not outright WITH THE DEVIL HIMSELF! This freak in office has sold his soul to Satan long ago, and he has no concience, and no honor, no honesty and certinaly no compassion for anyone at all. He is HIS OWN WORLD! He makes HIS OWN RULES AND EXPECTS, DEMANDS THAT they BE FOLLOWED! I think that he picked the wrong people to DEMAND or ORDER AROUND! Americans don’t take well to DICK HEADED DICTATORS! And I think Brandon was right about a Revolution to come…………..this country and her people are angrier than I have ever known them to be, angry at everything, starting with the Baboon in office! A moral free, concienceless spawn of some deformed life form. No one knows where he came from, but it sure isn’t a nice, soft, and peaceful place, it is evil, and it produced an evil that none of we Americans have ever seen or experienced before. This is the stuff of nightmares for each and every American who has a clue!!! The rest should be getting a clue real fast, because we who know what we are dealing with will not be the only ones to pay for what has been done to us by those who actually put this freak of nature where he is today!

    If that's the way the government wants to see it:
    SHARPEN MY AXE; I'M HERE TO SEVER HEADS!

    I can't WAIT for the REVOLUTION to BEGIN! I'll be front line armed to the teeth!

  10. I remember that many people in Communist Russia who tried to protest against the regime were considered crazy and put in insane asylums — anybody who wasn't happy with the wonderful gift of Communism to the people must surely be insane. Now this is happening in America. I wonder how these brainwashed police could be agreeable to commit such a crime against this wonderful innocent patriotic man? Surely there must be a way to confront them legally and get them removed or imprisoned for such an illegal criminal action.
