Marine involuntarily institutionalized after posting anti-government rants on his Facebook page.

Brandon J. Raub, 26, has been in custody since FBI, Secret Service agents and police in Virginia’s Chesterfield County questioned him Thursday evening about what they said were ominous posts talking about a coming revolution.

…Then released after uproar and threats of litigation.

A Hopewell Circuit Court judge on Aug. 23 ordered Raub released after concluding that a special justice had failed to properly fill out forms ordering Raub to undergo a 30-day confinement in the wake of findings that Raub was mentally ill.

Cut to:

Collapse of the “Cairo Doctrine”.

Look around…From Tunisia to Lebanon, American schools, businesses and diplomatic facilities set ablaze. A U.S. ambassador and three others murdered in Benghazi. The black flag of Salafism, of which al-Qaeda is a prominent element, raised over our embassies in Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen and Sudan.
The administration, staggered and confused, blames it all on a 14-minute trailer for a film no one has seen and may not even exist.

Blame it on “Innocence…

This is not a case of protests directed at the United States writ large or at U.S. policy. This is in response to a video that is offensive.

[W]hat sparked the recent violence was the airing on the Internet of a very hateful very offensive video that has offended many people around the world. … This was not a pre-planned, pre-meditated attack

What we do know is that the natural protests that arose because of the outrage over the video were used as an excuse by extremists to see if they can also directly harm U.S. interests.

Au Contraire, says Libyan President.

It was planned, definitely, it was planned by foreigners, by people who entered the country a few months ago, and they were planning this criminal act since their arrival.

$70,000.00 tax-payer-funded apology to Muslims in Pakistan.

U.S. Embassy advertisements condemning an anti-Islam video appeared on Pakistani television on Thursday in an attempt to undercut anger against the United States, where the film was produced….
State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said the ad was produced by the embassy, which spent $70,000 to air the 30-second spot on seven Pakistani television stations.

Meanwhile, the Feds and their obeisant MSM out the filmmaker, while perpetrating the Administration’s nonsensical claim that the film was responsible for the 9/11/2012 terror attacks…

The official said authorities had concluded that Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, 55, was behind “Innocence of Muslims,” a film that denigrated Islam and the prophet Muhammad and sparked protests earlier this week in Egypt, Libya and most recently in Yemen.

Then, the filmmaker is “voluntarily interviewed” by Feds.

Whitmore added that Nakoula agreed to the interview prior to the deputies arriving at his home, that the move was “entirely voluntary” and the man was “very cooperative.”

Filmmaker now “involuntarily arrested”.

The California man behind a crudely produced anti-Islamic video posted to YouTube that has inflamed parts of the Middle East was arrested for violating terms of his probation, authorities said Thursday.

Oh, and by the way, our government was totally lying about the whole video thing being the cause of the Mid East violence.

Asked if that meant al-Qaida, Obama said, “We don’t know yet.”

Within 24 hours of the 9-11 anniversary attack on the United States consulate in Benghazi, U.S. intelligence agencies had strong indications al Qaeda–affiliated operatives were behind the attack, and had even pinpointed the location of one of those attackers. …
Nonetheless, it took until late last week for the White House and the administration to formally acknowledge that the Benghazi assault was a terrorist attack.

U.S. Officials Knew Libya Attacks Were Work of Al Qaeda Affiliates, The Daily Beast, September 26th, 2012


Today, House Armed Services chair Rep. Howard “Buck” McKeon told Fox News that the Obama administration seems to be deliberately hiding the “truth” about the Benghazi attack, and that the only reason he sees for the subterfuge is the date in November that’s fast approaching.

House Armed Services chair: Obama admin hiding truth on Libya until after election, Hot Air, September 26th, 2012

Not that anyone watching the “news” would be aware of any of this.

This article points to serious intelligence failures at the CIA and the State Department, but stops short of attacking the Obama administration for system-wide negligence. It doesn’t suggest that it could have been more prepared for what now appears to be an al-Qaeda inspired (or even al-Qaeda planned) attack that killed an American ambassador.

Meanwhile, in NYC…

Anti-Islam billboards blocked by NYC.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority had initially rejected the ads, citing their “demeaning” language.

Anti-Islam billboards ruled constitutionally protected by courts.

The group behind the ads, the American Freedom Defense Initiative, sued, and in July won a federal court ruling on First Amendment grounds.

Anti-Islam billboards vandalized by Muslims and Dhimmis.

An Egyptian-American columnist, who rose to prominence on social media last year for her commentary during the revolution in Egypt, was arrested in the Times Square subway station on Tuesday for spraying pink paint on a pro-Israel poster that calls Islamist opponents of the Jewish state “savage.”

Anti-Islam billboards blocked by NYC…again.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority approved new guidelines for advertisements on Thursday, prohibiting those that it “reasonably foresees would imminently incite or provoke violence or other immediate breach of the peace.”
The 8-to-0 vote by the authority’s board came three days after pro-Israel ads characterizing Islamist opponents of the Jewish state as being “savage” began appearing in subway stations, setting off vandalism, denunciations of the authority and calls for the ads’ removal.

Pamela Geller, the executive director of the American Freedom Defense Initiative, also spoke, though she was repeatedly shouted down. She urged the board not to change its ad policy.

  1. A reminder

    The first 25 of 45 Communist goals for America:
    [From “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen] This represents an organized compendium of Communist Goals found in various authoritative Communist writings and testimony before Congress. These are the primary goals of Communism which will be pursued relentlessly [by them], using any and all means.
    [Remember that these Communist Goals were exposed to Congress in 1963]
    1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence (with Communism) as the only alternative to atomic war.

    2. U.S. willingness to capitulate (with Communism) in preference to engaging in atomic war.

    3. Develop the illusion that total (unilateral) disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength. [Obama’s unilateral nuclear reduction orders]

    4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war. [Obama’s purchase of helicopters from Russia for Afghanistan]

    5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

    6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination. [Gifts]

    7. Grant recognition of Red China. Secure the Admission of Red China to the U.N.

    8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

    9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

    10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N. [the breakup of the USSR]

    11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo. – Written 1963- )

    12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

    13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

    14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

    15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States. [*******]

    16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights. [******]

    17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. [Unionize] Put the party line in textbooks.

    18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

    19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack. [Among others, Bill Clinton’s activities in the U.K.]

    20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, and policy-making positions.

    21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

    22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”

    23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”

    24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

    25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

  2. Well laid out Red! I spoke to someone this morning and we are indeed in rare times. He spoke of collapse in 5-7 years, personnaly, I’m not sure if we have 5-7 weeks.

  3. Thank you RedStater.In keeping with the topic check this link.

    Some one enlighten me- is this to be tribute paid to a conquerorer or a tax paid to the new government?

  4. IronTigersVet91 says:

    Once the 1st Amendment gets threatened, the 2nd Amendment goes into place.

  5. Well Red… guess I better not say that I’m sharpening my axe in preparation for the coming revolution. Am I still allowed to say that our current prez is an absolute lying SOB and has the blood of both Brian Terry and Chris Stevens on his hands???… what moron would not have increased security around the world during 9/11… our Dear Leader who is busy playing golf and partying in the White House.

  6. If someone had alerted me 10 years ago that we would be sitting here in fear of our constitution being tampered with, through the collusion of our sitting president and the anti-American forces in whom he routinely panders to, I’d never believe it!

  7. Spurwing Plover says:

    Why do you thing the UN was created in the first place? Its never been or ever was about WORLD PEACE but about WORLD GOVERMENT and the facts that MAO SI TUNG was a bigger mass murderer then HITLER. Get the book DIE AMERICA DIE by TEXX MARRS and lern the TRUTH

  8. I had wondered what had happened to Raub and why no details have come to light about “what” is actually being investigated. All we know is something was typed on social media and that’s all it takes to break down your door and have you declared dangerous.

    By the way Redstater I think you are a 99 percent-er…
    because I agree with about 99% of what you blog, this was very good.

  9. obama = monster.
    Hope they dont ‘come calling’ for me posting this.

  10. God-damn fu@k’n bastards over at MSNBC caught doctoring footage from a Romney/Ryan rally………..

    Liberal god damn sacs-o-shits over at MSNBC….why am I not surprised…..

    • Bluto… damn msnbc lying again… as I often say, the news media is as worthless as a tit on a wild boar.
      Hope Romney/Ryan win just to antagonize the stinking puke media.

  11. The curtailing of our free speech may not be law on the books yet, but it’s a work in progress. Does anyone here really feel like they can speak their mind? Muslims in the US are seeking legislation to limit percieved insults to the Prophet Muhammed. It’s coming.

    Dearborn Michigan. Will it be the first US city to fall comletely into Muslim hands?

  12. FuriousFatMan says:

    so, does this article mean we’re all voting for Ron Paul?

    srsly, though, im voting for Gary Johnson. i live in Illinois, Obama is going to win 85%. Johnson need 5% so i can then register as a flippin libertarian here in Illinazi. yay.

    then i can be in a 10% 3rd party that never wins.

    cant wait for the zombies.
