Off topic, my appologies for spaming.  Lets light these District of Criminals phone lines up and stop contributing to your own debt bondage and enslavement to the Criminal TBTFBanksters.  WithDraw you money OUT of them!

Credit unions promote the economic well-being of their members, especially those of modest means, through a system that is member-owned, volunteer-directed and not-for-profit.  As a credit union member, I know firsthand that my credit union offers financial products that provide better returns on savings, reduced rates on loans and lower or no fees on services.

Unfortunately, the big banks and some in Congress want to raise taxes and impose new fees on millions of credit union members, who together represent 40% of all Americans. And, they want to do this despite the fact that credit unions are not-for-profit.

Please don’t raise taxes on 96 million credit union members. Don’t tax my credit union!

Free Adam Kokesh Prison Rally Fairfax, VA Sat 13 Jul 10AM 4 Replies

Adam remains in the Fairfax county adult detention center (prison) in Fairfax, Virginia this morning in solitary confinement, without proper clothing, bedding or medical care and with the lights being kept on constantly.

  • Adam’s business and public relations defense teams are working overtime to assist Adam. We need your support and attention to do this.
  • This morning we issued a nationally-distributed press release. Please share it with your media contacts. We need coverage for the brutal treatment being meted out to Adam not just for him but for all the victims of government aggression that doesn’t have as loud of a voice or as much courage as he does.
  • ? Share the Press Release: Supporters Launch Free Adam Kokesh Campaign
  • Adam’s business and public relations defense teams are holding a rally outside of the cage where he is being held tomorrow, Sat 13 July 2013 at 10AM Eastern in Fairfax, Virginia. Please RSVP if you can attend and share the event whether you can attend or not: Free Adam Kokesh PRISON RALLY!
  • ? Join and Share the Rally: Free Adam Kokesh PRISON RALLY!
  • Prosecutors in Fairfax county have yet to actually prepare a criminal complaint against Adam. In fact, due to Virginia being a low discovery state, they may never do that. Here are better copies of the Virginia arrest warrants against Adam:


  • We are still working on a scan of the federal search warrant for the fishing expedition that prompted all of this.
  • There has been some confusion about the warrants. On Tue 09 Jul, US Park Police got a search warrant for Adam’s home. They were looking for evidence related to Adam’s July 4th video where he appears to have loaded a shotgun in Washington D.C.’s Freedom Plaza.
  • While conducting that search, Park Police claim that they also found psychedelic mushrooms. This is where the Virginia arrest warrants come in. These arrest warrants are a formality after the fact in order to document Adam’s arrest.
  • Adam met with a court-appointed attorney this morning.
  • Here is an interview from 10 July with two members of Adam’s business team in which they recount the attack.

I will post updates for today here as they come along.
