Former Marine Arrested by FBI for Patriotic Facebook Posts?

August 18, 2012

NOTE:  The facts of this story are developing.  The claims made in this post have not yet been verified.

Former Marine Brandon J Raub’s mother claims he was taken by FBI and Secret Service on 8/16/12 for posting patriotic Facebook posts on his Facebook page. She also claims that he is now being held in mental hospital.

Brandon’s mom is interviewed in this clip on the Josh Tolley Show:


The video below was taken 8.16.12 around 7:30 pm. This is the video of Brandon J Raub being arrested and taken away by the Chesterfield County Virginia Police Department.  It is claimed the police forces showed up at Brandon’s home and inquired about his postings on Facebook and then took him away.

The text below is from Brandon J Raub’s controversial posting on Facebook.  We do not yet know if Brandon made any other posts that are also under scrutiny in addition to this one.

America has lost itself. We have lost who we truly are. This is the land of the free and the home of the brave. This is the land of Thomas Jefferson. This is the land of Benjamin Franklin. This is the land of Fredrick Douglas. This is the land of Smedley Butler. This is the land John F. Kennedy. This is the land of Martin Luther King. This is the land where the cowboy wins. This is the land where you can start from the bottom and get to the top. This is the land where regardless of you race and ethnicity you can suceed and build a better life for you and your family. This is the land where every race coexists peacefully. This is the land where justice wins. This is the land where liberty dwells. This is the land where freedom reigns. This is the land where we help the poor, and people help eachother. This is land where people beat racism.

The federal reserve is wrong. They have designed a system based off of gread and fear. They designed a system to crush the middle class between taxes and inflation. This is wrong, and it is unjust. It is wrong.

We have allowed ourselves to be devieced and seduced by the powers of the printing press. It is not a good system. It discourages saving: the foundation for all stable economic activity. The federal reserve is artificially manipulating interests rates and creating phony economic data. This thing has decieved our entire nation.

They created it 1913. They also created the income tax in 1913. They encouraged the growth of debt so they can tax you on it. There is interest on the debt. Your government is in bed with these people. They want to enslave you to the government so that they can control every aspect of your lives. It is an empire based on lies. They operate of greed and fear.

There is a better way. It’s called freedom. Freedom is called a lot of things. But there is a true meaning. It means very simply that you have the right to do whatever you want as long as you are not infringing on the feedoms of other people.

I firmly believe that God set America apart from the other nations of the world. He saved a place where people could come to to escape bad systems of goverment. This system we have created works. It really works.

There is evil going on all around the world. The United States was meant to lead the charge against injustice, but through our example not our force. People do not respond to having liberty and freedom forced on them.

Men and Women follow courage. They follow leadership, and courage. Our example has paved the way for people all around the world to change their forms of goverment.

Force is not the way because liberty is a powerful concept. The idea that men can govern themselves is the basis for every just form of government.

We can govern ourselves. We do not need to be governed by men who want to install a one world banking system. These men have machine hearts. Machine and unnatural hearts. They have blocked out the possibility of a better world. They fear human progress. They have monopolies on everything.

This life can be free and beautiful. There are enough resources on this earth to support the world’s population. There are enough resources on this earth to feed everyone. There is enough land for everyone to own their own land and farm, and produce their own energy.

These people have been hiding technology. There are ways to create power easily. There is technology that can provide free cheap power for everyone. There are farming techniques that can feed the entire world.

They are controlling your media. They have dumbed you down through your school systems. They have systematically dismantled the constitution. It is in rags.

The bill of rights is being systematically dismantled. Men have spilled their blood for those rights.

Your sons and daughters, your brothers and sisters, and Americas best young men and women are loosing their limbs. They are loosing their lives. They are loosing the hearts. They do not know why they are fighting. They are killing. And they do not know why.

They have done some extroadinary acts. Their deeds go before them. But these wars are lies. They are lies. They decieved our entire nation with terrorism. They have gotten us to hand them our rights. Our Rights! Men died for those rights!

September Eleventh was an inside job. They blew up a third building in broad daylight. Building 7.

Your leaders betrayed you.

You elected an aristocracy. They are beholden to special interests. They were brainwashed through the Council on Foreign Relations. Your leaders are planning to merge the United States into a one world banking system. They want to put computer chips in you.

These men have evil hearts. They have tricked you into supporting corporate facism. We gave them the keys to our country. We were not vigilant with our republic.


UPDATE 2:55am 8/18/12

    Looks like the uneducated media is handing us another busted bag of maggots. Raub has served his time honorably and is now a CIVILIAN!! If, in fact, he were a ‘former’ Marine, he could not have been arrested, he would have had to be exhumed, because he would be DEAD. He is a ‘Marine Corps veteran’, just like the rest of us. He was trained to slap the snot out of bullies and to piss out the fires of injustice. He spent his time ‘on the wall’ on watch while the rest of us snuggled in our safe comfortable beds. Now, while still on watch, he sees a leak in the boat, a crack in the wall, a fire in the companionway and has elected to sound the alarm, per his general orders, rather than wait and report the fire to the Corporal of the Guard, when it is too late. General Smedley Darlington Butler would be proud of him, as am I.
