Iraq vet arrested on terrorism charges after jogging with training rifle

 

 

 From the Trenches World Report

RT News  A US veteran is facing charges of terrorism after beingarrested for trying to get some exercise.

That’s William Alemar’s story, at least, who was detained this week after jogging in full military fatigues in public while carrying atraining rifle.

Authorities have charged 23-year-old Army National Guardsman and Iraq war veteran William Everett Alemar with “committing a terroristic act and wearing body armor while committing a felony offense.”

He was arrested on the morning of August 20 after officers responded to calls of an armed man running along a road adjacent to a Martinsburg, West Virginia high school.

When the cops found Alemar three minutes later, he was wearing his full National Guard get-up and was brandishing an air-soft “training rifle,” a gun that while similar to his actual weapon only fires pellets, not bullets.

He was also garbed in a ballistic vest composed of bullet-resistant ceramic panels and was equipped with two knives and several unloaded magazines, the Herald-Mail reports.

“The primary concern for the police department was that subject’s proximity to the areaschools — Martinsburg High School, South Middle — when he was first located off Bulldog Boulevard,” Martinsburg Police Lt. George Swartwood says to reporters.

After spotting Alemar, authorities ordered him to the ground and then seized the weapons.

He was initially held on $50,000 cash bond.

For the family of the vet, it seems a bit too much.

“He’s not a terrorist; he’s not a bad kid,” the suspect’s father, Stephen Alemar, tells The Herald-Mail.

A Facebook group, “Support William Alemar,” has been started to help the veteran as he prepares to fight his charges.

Several of the users who have joined the group have made comparisons between Alemar and Brandon Raub, a retired US Marine from Virginia man who was recently detained for one week after he posted messages on his own social networking profile that raised the eyebrows of authorities.

“The idea of a Constitution free zone is bunk, and we would like to support this American Patriot as was Brandon Raub supported in his time of trouble,” the creator of the ‘Support William Alemar’ page writes. 

“The idea you can be labeled a ‘terrorist’ simply by carrying a training rifle, ammo, and knives is once again, an overblown reaction by our government.

Unless further hitherto unknown facts are released, it seems we should unite with this American hero, who is NOT a terrorists but a citizen of the republic!”

Day After Raub’s Arrest Another Veteran Declared ‘Mentally Defective,’ and Guns Seized

 

 

From 12160.info

News of similar case emerges day after release of Brandon Raub

Friday, August 24, 2012

Just a day after Brandon Raub was released following his incarceration in a psychiatric ward over political Facebook posts, news has emerged of a similar case involving a veteran who had his guns seized after being labeled a “mental defective’ and faces being committed by a judge.

Radio host Steve Quayle was sent news of an Army combat veteran and Purple Heart recipient in west central Ohio who was the victim of a police raid on the evening of August 22nd during which Miami County Ohio Sheriff’s deputies executed a search warrant to seize the man’s firearms for the “safety of the defendant and the general public,” according to the warrant.

The veteran, who is currently unnamed, had his guns taken because he was adjudged to be mentally incompetent, despite the fact that his previous VA psychiatric evaluations were all clear, he is not on medication, and he had no criminal record.

The man appears to be a respected member of the community – he works for a Christian company and his father is a police officer and a pastor.

“The person is under adjudication of mental incompetence, has been adjudicated as a mental defective, has been committed to a mental institution, has been found by a court to be a mentally ill person subject to hospitalization by court order, or is an involuntary patient other than one who is a patient only for purposes of observation.

As used in this division, “mentally ill person subject to hospitalization by court order” and “patient” have the same meanings as in section 5122.01 of the Revised Code,” states the warrant.

Amongst the items confiscated were a .45 caliber pistol, one .380 caliber pistol, a 12 gauge shotgun, two AR-15 rifles, a stripped AR-15 lower receiver, as well as a hunting knife.

“In addition to the confiscations, the deputies attempted to question my friend and his fiancée,” states the email sent to Quayle by the man’s friend. “I didn’t get specific details on the questions asked.

They refused to answer any questions without an attorney present. When my friend stated, “This is bullshit,” one of the deputy detectives remarked, “Look man, I’m just doing my job.”

The veteran now faces “an evaluation of mental competency” with a judge who will decide whether he should be committed to a state psychiatric ward.

If any more weapons are found on the man’s property in the interim he will have committed a felony and will face a jail sentence.

Since the veteran is active in the so-called truth movement or patriot community, it is assumed that his involvement in this field is part of the reason why he has been targeted for psychiatric evaluation.

“Unlike Brandon Raub’s case, however, the state of Ohio won’t allow law enforcement to involuntarily commit a person unless there is an immediate need to do so, such as holding a gun to their head or another person’s head,” states the email.

“Ohio law requires a judge to make the decision on having a person evaluated for mental illness.

Of course, you’re then evaluated by a state-appointed psych, and that isn’t exactly going to play out in your favor.

Had my friend lived in Virginia, he may be sitting in a metal hospital (prison) right now. Or worse.”

The veteran’s lawyer has already filed motions attempting to discover who asked the judge to sign the search warrant and for what reason he was declared mentally defective.

Earlier this year, we reported on a similar case involving David Sarti, one of the participants in the National Geographic Channel’s Doomsday Prepper show.

Sarti visited his doctor complaining of chest pains, only to have the doctor later commit him to a psychiatric ward and alert authorities, before Sarti was declared “mentally defective” and put on an FBI list that stripped him of his second amendment rights.

Brandon Raub, a former veteran of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, was also involuntarily detained for psychiatric questioning last week by authorities in Virginia’s Chesterfield County for leaving anti-establishment messages on Facebook which questioned the official story behind 9/11 and referred to corruption within the U.S. government.

Raub also posted song lyrics on a private message board.

The FBI claimed Raub’s posts were “terrorist in nature” and yet within a week Raub was ordered to be released by a judge who found that the original petition for his detention contained no facts whatsoever on the reason for his incarceration.

Raub’s lawyer John Whitehead revealed that shortly before his release, psychiatrists had threatened to forcibly medicate Raub in order to “brainwash” him.

Whitehead warned that there were 20,000 recent cases in Virginia alone of people being snatched from their homes having been declared mentally defective by the state with virtually no due process whatsoever and with the victim having committed no crime.

Critics have made comparisons to the infamous psikhushka psychiatric prisons in the former Soviet Union where dissidents were sent to be isolated, brainwashed, and have their political ideas discredited amongst the general public.

Given the fact that the Department of Homeland Security has repeatedly demonized veterans as likely domestic terrorists, it’s clear that former servicemen are being targeted as part of an effort to chill free speech and discourage other veterans from being politically active.

 Mitt Romney nomination pushed up on concerns about storm, Ron Paul

 

 

 From the Trenches World Report

 Posted on August 24, 2012 by Admin


News Day  Republican delegates will begin the roll call vote to officially nominate Mitt Romney for president on Monday at the national convention in Tampa, which could allow Romney to accept the GOP nomination earlier in the week than has occurred at previous conventions.

The formal presidential nomination process will begin earlier than past years in part because of concerns about supporters of libertarian Texas Rep. Ron Paul, Republican officials said Thursday.

Officials are also discussing the impact that Tropical Storm Isaac could have on the convention.

Republican candidates have typically been nominated a day ahead of their convention speech.

Roll call votes have typically begun later in the convention proceedings than will occur this year, a convention official said.

Romney is slated to speak next Thursday.

Paul challenged Romney during the Republican primary process and has a following of loyal and vocal supporters, some of whom will be involved in the roll call process.

Several hundred convention delegates are pledged to support Paul.

The Texas congressman hasn’t released them to support others as former HouseSpeaker Newt Gingrich, another Romney primary rival, has allowed.

Holding much of the roll call on Monday will also allow more time for speeches during the three nights that broadcast TV networks are planning to air convention addresses and proceedings.

The three major TV networks don’t plan to cover Monday night’s convention events, leaving cable news networks to air the proceedings.

The networksplan to broadcast Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights during the convention.

After Romney formally accepts the party’s nomination, he’ll have access to money he’s raised to support his general election bid.

Until he’s the party’s official nominee, he’s only able to use cash he raised as contributions for his GOP primary campaign.

Absolutely Infuriating! RNC is committing FRAUD in ALL ways Stopping Ron Paul Delegates!

Changing Rules at the last minute! Took Ron Paul’s Maine delegates out.

 

 

From Sherrie Questioning All

August 24, 2012

The RNC is committing fraud they have changed all the rules at the last second stopping Ron Paul delegates!

Update 1:37 PM – RNC officially threw Maine Delegates out so Ron Paul would not have his 5 states! 

What Bullshit! 

AGAIN I WILL NEVER BE PART OF THE POLITICAL RIGGED BULLSHIT GAME OF THE COUNTRY!  I WILL NEVER EVER GO INTO A VOTING BOOTH AGAIN!  

This is so infuriating!

This shows there is no honor in any political aspect or field in regards to the government or elections!

This is proof all those at the top of the RNC have no morals nor will ever do what is right!

Yesterday I wrote that I will Never vote again! there are many comments there, including one saying “Romney has morals.”

I laughed and thought there are still so many that think they are awake, yet they are still obviously asleep. 

No one that is in the position to be elected President that has been selected by the establishment has morals!

 Understand they are all controlled!

If you vote for one of them, you are then “allowing” them to do as they will against you and the rest of the citizens of the United States! 

Remember the cheating Romney did at the Maine RNC convention?

 Here is the post about that and the video with proof of the cheating.

These are the delegates the RNC just now unseated and dissolved so Ron Paul would not have 5 states of delegates, thus his name will not be mentioned at the RNC convention now! 

 PEOPLE WAKE UP!

Brandon Raub Released from Psychiatric Hospital; Did the FBI Go Too Far?

 

 

From the Trenches World Report

Posted on August 24, 2012 by Admin

Gather  

Marine Brandon Raub of Richmond, VA, was unlawfully detained and ordered to be released from a Psychiatric Hospital,according to Circuit Judge W. Allan Sharret on Thursday.

Judge Sharret concluded that the involuntary commitment petition against Raub was “devoid of any factual allegations.”

The decision was correct; however, the shocking nature of the actions leading to Brandon’s involuntary admission to a VA hospital illustrate a broader concern about individual liberty in America.

And there are some major inconsistencies, described below.

Raub, who served his country in Iraq and Afghanistan, was taken by the FBI and Secret Service earlier this week after he was accused of posting “terroristic” messages on Facebook.

Raub’s lead attorney, John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute, said that the posts cited as “terrorist in nature” were actually a part of a private Facebook game called Illuminati that Brandon was playing online with his siblings and was being monitored by the FBI.

In January, the FBI “announced it was seeking to develop an automatic mass-monitoringcomputer application to analyze Facebook for crime-related comments,” as reported by Mashable.

Was this a part of that initiative?

 In light of this overreach, will the programbe scrapped or at the very least, reviewed?

The article claims that the FBI is also spying on SKYPE, but with a court order.

Do American Citizens want their Facebook postings and SKYPE conversions monitored by the government?

This case has been a study of conflicting statements, as the TimesDispatch reported that a “Crisis Employee” stated in a mental assessment record that one of Brandon’s friends reported Brandon to the FBI for conspiracy theories and threats to George W. Bush.

So which was it?

Did the FBI spy on Brandon or did a friend “turn him in”?

Another important conflict is that Raub’s mother said that an FBI agent told her that Brandon was “arrested by the Chesterfield police department” because he “assaulted an officer and resisted arrest.”

Michael Kelly of Business Insider, however, reported that the Chesterfield Police Department said Raub has not been charged with resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer.

This frightening inconsistency should raise flags.

Why would Brandon’s mother make such a statement if that is not what she was specifically told by the FBI?

Attorney Whitehead told Business Insider that “every year in Virginia more than 20,000 people are committed under similar circumstances and ‘that means a lot of people are disappearing’ under the pretext of mental illness.” 

If this is true, the unlawful detainment of Brandon has nothing to do with the NDAA and its unconsitutional detention provision; so that begs the question, what exactly is Virginia up to?

The Motion stated, in part:

“The government’s power to involuntarily admit an individual for evaluation of a mental illness is a creation of statute.

Because an order providing for such admission deprives a citizen of his liberty, to protect citizens from an overreaching government the Virginia legislature has created a specific, detailed procedure, set forth in Virginia Code § 37.2-800, that must be followed before an individual can be involuntarily admitted.

In the present case, that procedure was not followed.

As such, the District Court’s August 20, 2012 order is void.”

Tiffany Madison from Washington Times Communities reported that the judge overseeing the case was “shocked by the failure of the magistrate to include in the order any grounds for holding Raub.”

One cannot help but wonder how it is possible that Brandon was held in the first place.

And is Brandon Raub’s case indicative of other cases in Virginia? In America?

Does the Military Protect Our Freedom? 

 

 

From COMD – Committee Opposed to Militarism and the Draft

From Draft NOtices, March-April 2002 – Ray Wolf

“I’d like to thank our military personnel for defending our country and protecting our freedoms.”

In the wake of September 11, this is a common public acknowledgment from celebrities, politicians, myriad TV and radio commentaries, and many people on the streets of the United States.

As a Navy veteran, whenever I hear statements like these, I think, “What are they talking about? Since when does the military have anything to do with freedom?”

If I make this statement out loud, I’m often told that the military protects my right to criticize the U.S. government and the military.

I use such circumstances as an opportunity to educate people who believe that the military protects our freedoms.

Here is one blueprint I’ve used successfully in conversations with friends, family and even strangers to shift the conversation.

History is a powerful place to begin, and many people know little about how the U.S. government has repeatedly used its military against its own citizens.

In 1877, for example, railroad workers went on strike to protest pay cuts, profiteering by the railroads, and unsafe working conditions that led to injury, dismemberment, and death.

The U.S. Army was deployed to crush the union strikers. Collusion played a major role, since the railroads loaned the U.S. government the money to pay the Army officers (but not the enlisted men).

What this means is that the Army was protecting the railroad barons’ right to harm and exploit their workers.

For those who might protest that this was a long time ago, it’s important to point out that these early actions set the precedents for continued use of the military against U.S. citizens, and then proceed with the history lesson.

In the summer of 1932, the worst year of the Depression, 25,000 penniless WWI veterans and their families camped out in shacks and abandoned buildings in Washington, D.C., to ask Congress for their veterans’ bonus to feed their starving children.

Eventually, President Hoover ordered the U.S. Army to attack and disperse them.

After charging the ragged group of men, women, and children with tanks, tear gas, and bayonets, the Army leveled and torched the camp. There were more than 100 casualties, including two babies.

This assault against U.S. citizens was led by General Douglas MacArthur, who was aided by future general George Patton and future general and president Dwight Eisenhower.

The military violently denied the rights of U.S. citizens to exercise free speech and petition the government — it was not protecting those rights.

It can be useful to ask people who believe that the military protects our freedoms why it was necessary, as late as the 1960s, to have a movement seeking to secure constitutional rights for people of color.

It was civilians at that time who, at great sacrifice, struggled to bring about a change.

In fact, it has almost always been civilians, through grassroots movements, who have fought for our rights and freedoms in this country, while the military has supported the system that,

among other things, profited from slavery, practiced genocide against native people, denied the female half of the population their right to vote, and prevented people of color from civil rights protection.

Another infamous use of the military in that era was at Kent State University.

Four college students who were protesting the Viet Nam War and the government’s illegal bombing of Cambodia were murdered by National Guardsmen.

Could one say that the military was protecting the U.S. government’s right to wage war by shooting its own citizens?

If that’s still not current enough, you can ask about Esequiel.

“Essay what?” is the usual response I get.

In 1997 Esequiel Hernandez, Jr., a U.S. citizen, was murdered by U.S. Marines patrolling the border with Mexico while he was herding sheep in Texas.

An investigation revealed not only that the Marines’ claim that Esequiel was shooting at them was bogus, but that he probably didn’t even know they were in the area.

The Marines certainly weren’t protecting Esequiel’s right to life.

At any point in the discussion military supporters are likely to challenge my points.

Here are a few examples:

  • The military has been around for over two hundred years. 

    You’re just pointing out a few instances where it has acted improperly. 

    Actually, these are only a few examples, and there are dozens, if not hundreds, of other cases.

     One of the reasons that some early government leaders wanted a strong central government was to have enough military power to respond to uprisings among the citizens, 

    and the government has regularly used the military for such control throughout the entire history of the U.S.

  • The military is just following orders from politicians.

     A variation is: Politicians are the ones that are really responsible.

     It’s true that politicians are often the people who give the military the authority to commit reprehensible acts.

     This gives me an opportunity to talk about the “military-industrial complex” — the term used to describe the relationships among the military, politicians, weapons manufacturers, and other transnational corporate interests (particularly oil corporations)

    In this system the Pentagon, military contractors, and other corporations all use enormous political pressure and financial incentives to influence politicians to act in their best interests. 

    Another feature of the system is that high-ranking military personnel make decisions that are profitable for weapons manufacturers, 

    and when their military careers are over, 

    many of these former Pentagon decision-makers take well-paying positions with military contractors as executives, lobbyists, 

    or consultants, and some go into politics. 

    The corporations need wars — declared or undeclared — to keep making the money that benefits the insiders in this system.

It’s hard for most people to realize that they’ve been lied to, so it helps to provide examples showing that the military not only doesn’t protect our rights, it actually restricts them.

In the 1980s, peace and anti-militarism groups seeking to counter military recruiters had to go to court in several cities after being denied the same access to public high schools that was granted to the military.

In San Diego and Atlanta the cases went to federal appellate courts, where it was argued that under the Constitution, equal access must be given to both sides once a forum on a controversial political issue has been created by public school officials.

The U.S. military moved to intervene in both of these cases so it could use its vast legal and financial resources to influence the decisions.

The Pentagon succeeded in intervening in the Atlanta case, which was still decided in favor of the counter-recruitment group but with very narrow parameters set for equal access.

In the San Diego case, the Pentagon’s motion to intervene was rejected on a technicality, allowing a court ruling to stand that granted the broadest access rights to counter-recruiters.

This outcome did not erase the fact that the military acted to limit, not guarantee, free speech.

Another example of the military deterring free speech rights occurred when the U.S. Marines banned the Project on Youth and Non-Military Opportunities from participating in the 1998 San Diego Youth Summit held at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar.

Against the wishes of the civilians who organized the event, the Marine Corps refused to allow a group that promoted peace and social change to express its views.

Yet another example of military anti-democratic assault on the rights of U.S. citizens occurred last year.

For decades the residents of Vieques, Puerto Rico, have been trying to get the Navy to cease bombing exercises, clean up its toxic waste, and leave the island (see Draft NOtices, July-August 2000).

Following intense pressure from the people of Vieques and their supporters, President Clinton issued a directive that a referendum would be held to allow the people of Vieques to vote on whether the Navy should stay or leave.

Unfortunately, Clinton allowed the Navy to determine when the referendum would be held.

(Who’s in charge here? Certainly not the people.)

The Navy scheduled the referendum for November 5, 2001, and public sentiment clearly showed that the Navy would have been voted out. Not surprisingly, the Navy decided to postpone the referendum, clearly suppressing civilian rights.

If you’ve made it this far in a discussion with a military supporter, you can point out that in all of these examples, what the military was really protecting was wealthy people in privileged positions and their opportunity to expand their power

and/or profiteer from war without the inconvenience of dissenting voices and Constitutional restrictions.

Sometimes this is enough for your discussion partner to acknowledge that they’re all a bunch of jerks, but the country still needs to be protected. If you’re invited to answer the question,

“Well, what would you do?” you’ve got an invaluable opportunity for education and social change. Use it!
