    Default Marine Veteran Arrested For Anti-Obama Facebook Posts

    Marine Veteran Arrested For Anti-Obama Facebook Posts



    In a report sure to send a shiver down the spines of we Americans awake enough to interpret and comprehend what’s going on, a Marine Corps veteran was recently arrested after making a few Facebook posts critical of the government. After spending about a week in a mental institution, he was released and is now suing the slate for a slew of violations.

    Brandon Raub thought nothing when posting, “controversial song lyrics, conspiracy theories related to 9/11 and talk of upcoming revolution,” on his Facebook as he is covered under the First Amendment. As it stands however, it appears he struck a nerve with local law enforcement that arrested him, without charge, and had him admitted into a mental health institute for Oppositional Defiance Disorder.

    This is absolutely nuts.

    A man speaking out against a government he no longer has faith in is arrested and diagnosed with Oppositional Defiance Disorder? This should be a wakeup call to all American alike as so many constitutionally granted rights have been violated that’s its literally baffling.



    According to TPNN:

    This is not an isolated incident, however, as Raub was detained as part of a DHS directive called “Operation Vigilant Eagle,” a directive aimed at scrutinizing the behavior of veterans for anything nonconformist as a means of weeding out dissent. The program claims to be trying to help veterans who are “disgruntled, disillusioned or suffering from the psychological effects of war.”

    Using the sacrifice Raub made for this country, the government effectively silenced a former Marine who was simply exercising his First Amendment rights. Along with this, as he was arrested without charge, thus also illegally violating his Fourth Amendment right when they seized him.

    He is now suing the state for these two constitutional violations as well as wrongful imprisonment and kidnapping.

    Black Blade: He should sue and win huge - I mean humongous - monetary damages and be financially set for life. Same with all harmed by government for similar abuses.

    NEVER POST you going to sharpen an ax and go for the heads in Washington (thats not exactly was he said but Hell if Im going to post it verbatim LOL) . Washington will twist it to Terrorist threats and acts, the can use It as charge or they can use that it for a involuntary committal.

    NEVER GIVE THEM A REASON.

    I remember when that happened. It was a big dang deal, wondering if you were gonna wind up in Gitmo for saying the wrong thing on the net. Not that I don't shoot my mouth off too much here, but I'm definitely glad I never got on Facebook. I probably would be in Gitmo. LOL.

    You guys still think they respect the Constitution? It is dead and gone in their eyes.

    I am overseas working in Commie China. I don't say anything about those bozos for the same reason.

    The more stuff changes the more it remains the same.

    Bang, Bang, shoot, shoot!

    This nimrod, when asked by the FBI if he 'was going to act on his posted threats' responded, "wait and see" and "you'll find out shortly". Personally, I would take both of those answers as a "yes".
    Now, if Michael Campbell has committed every person that Lon Horiuchi's crew brings to him, then EVERYTHING about this must be investigated.
    Just wondering though, just what damage is prettyboy ink-tits going to do with a broken SXS fowling piece?

    btw, I've been around and handling firearms for a half century, and there is only ONE picture with me holding a gun (.44mag Marlin saddle-ring carbine-Christmas gift) and it sure as shit ain't on the 'net.
    If you're a gun owner and you die changing a lady's tire on the way home from church, the picture they're going to put in the paper is one of you with messed-up hair holding a damn gun.

    Oppositional Defiance Disorder.
    OK so anyone who is opposed to any thing now mentally Ill???

    As far as my thoughts on Brandon Raub . Your a Fing idiot . All this tough talk makes you look like a fool, All of you veiled threats makes you a even a bigger fool . I dont know if your just a tough talker or then next Oklahoma city bomber . Your dumb shit scares me an I believe in the constitution . You dont even have a a laser or or a flash light on you antique shot gun were is thepsitol grip ? .no zombie is going to even stop if you shoot it . Your mall ninja buddies think your a Joke an are glad you don't have a AE 15 as you scare them to . Honestly im glad they asked you a few questions because your acting like a 10 year old video game player. .

    If you were to turn your left arm a little you you attempted power flex would attract more young boys. The lighting on your face is all wrong you will never attract the gay porn industry that way. Are you in you moms basement ?? I suggest you hit the rogaine as your hair is receding. Take down the marine banner your embarrassing the marines who don't need to talk tough an just do it, if something is bothering them

    I dont know what is wrong with you but you need to get some real help an move on an enjoy life . THANK YOU FOR SERVING Im sorry you hate the world so much.

    I have read some of the crap this guys has said an all I can thing is what is Authorites supposed to do?? Ignore the clown an next thing you know there under fire because he shoots up a school an they knew he was nuts OR take him in for questioning an risk violating his rights . A pretty big catch 22 IMO

    Sad but true.

    There are a few picks of me holding guns but generally Im also holding a pair of antlers up also.. I have a few picks up of my young soon shooting target an i have begun to rethink that also. I dont need that stuff possibly following him some day .

    IMO to many gun owners feel they need to talk tough an act tough because they have a gun . Responsible gun owners need to discourage this BS I see to many Dick head wannabe door kickers lately. Best to just be ready an prepared . I have just seen to many Zombie hunters lately an they all remind me of the obnoxious drunk guy at the bar . they make every one nervous an sooner or later they take things to far . learn gun etiquette an stop being a idiot .nobody cares how many 30 round mags you have an how many rounds your gun can bump fire a minute . Shut up an enjoy your gun . We dont need a youtube video of it .

    I wonder if being in there for a few days now disqualifies him from owning a firearm.I can't remember what it says exactly but isn't that question on form 4473?if you lie on it and get caught I'm pretty sure you are automatically disqualified.Don't quote me on it but I'm pretty sure.

    dunn yes to answer your question. If you voluntarily commit yourself for whatever, your o.k. Hell someone could have a drinking problem and ask for help, check in and come out. Well hell that does not a bad person make, you are helping to heal yourself.
    Key here is voluntary. Now if they pick you up and heave you in the Looney bin, your done with weapons. The NCIC background check will pick that up in a heartbeat if trying to purchase a weapon.
    Yeah most all forums you can get a point across without direct threats. Hell I am not worried about the idiot that says he is going to kill me, like Mongo says "Geez thanks for the warning." Hell I worry about the ones who don't tell me.
    Good God I do not want to see anything happen to Nappy Head. We loose him the biggest idiot that God ever created takes over Joe Biteme. "Jill Jill go too the balcony and bust some rounds, I think those damn kids are on the lawn again. Call the Police in the morning and look for a blood trail?"
    That friggen drunk mo-ron gets near a microphone and he frigs up. Just STFU Joe, stay in the cellar and drink. Few more years you can come out and sit in your favorite pub.
