    This week I read of another incident…Jason Egroff, web designer, 28 yrs old, in Scranton, Pennsylvania being picked up for his Christian views and mention of his guns on radio. He has a Conservative/Christian radio program. He was picked up at his home by police, taken to a mental hospital, and questioned 18 hours about his beliefs. Finally, since he gave them no resistance and held his temper, they let him go home; but, now has a record of being a mental patient. He was told they had to take his guns away; but, haven’t yet. They called him back once for a review. I think I read this in The Canada Free Press.

    If this unlawful detainment is not a clear violation of the constitution and bill of rights what is. When rebellion in any form is construed by the statists to be a form of mental illness who do we petition for the redress of wrongs in our Republic ?

    Another reason that Obamacare should never be implemented. Imagine all the people who will be given sedatives and drugs to control them.
    And who will know.? Fortunately this man said he is not being given meds.
    But people need to think about all the power that Obamacare will have.
    Totally frightening.

    What about the Black Panther leaders that are on Radio threatening to blow up nurseries with white babies in them and threatening to skin white people? Trying to intimidate voters. We hear their free speech loud and clear and it doesn’t seem to upset the government. Our first amendment should apply to all American citizens.

      under obama only those who kowtow to him and his agenda have free speech …and the more vile, viscious, and vilolent the better…as long as you are a black panther.

    Brandon Raub is being used as an example to everyone else. If you don’t behave as the government wishes, this will happen to you.

  • Christine

    This radical, left-wing socialist thug-backed administration will run out of psyche ward space REAL SOON if they think they can simply lock up & remove the MILLIONS of us who echo this Marine’s core values and opinions!!!!! WE HAVE GOT TO VOTE THEM OUT, PEOPLE!!!

  • CSN

    Why do they have to handcuff people by knocking them on the ground? I’ve seen this before and it is horrid! They’re going to be messing with his mind. I don’t expect him to come out of this institution without some mind abuse from the PTB.

  • CSN

    Get off Facebook people! Government is watching you there and everywhere!

    Another Obamanation: from protect religious freedom:

    Sent by Retired Vice Admiral Bob Scarborough, of Arlington , VA.
    “I wanted to
    give you all some disturbing information on our wonderful president. I
    work with the Catch-A-Dream Foundation, which provides hunting and
    fishing trips to children with life-threatening illnesses. This past
    weekend we had our annual banquet/fundraiser event in Starkville .
    As a part of our
    program, we had scheduled Sgt. 1st Class Greg Stube to come; he’s a
    highly decorated U.S. Army Green Beret and inspirational speaker who was
    severely injured while deployed overseas and didn’t have much of a
    chance for survival.
    Greg is
    stationed at Ft. Bragg , NC and received permission from his commanding
    officer to come speak at our function. Everything was on go until Obama
    Needless to say,
    Greg had to cancel his speaking event with us. Didn’t know if anyone
    else was aware of this new policy. You’re just starting to see the
    Obamanation. This is just how the Nazis did it in the 1930’s — slowly,
    one step at a time.

    This should be
    forwarded to everyone regardless of party affiliation! We have lost 50%
    of our freedom of speech in the last 2 years.
    The news media is not allowed to print anything negative about this evil Obama.

  • It is too bad that freedom of speech is being silenced, and real thugs are being encouraged to continue their hateful rhetoric. If you are black and your last name is Panther, no amount of actual threats or intimidation will count against you.

    Van Jones was also a truther, but was never put in a holding cell or a psychiatric ward. No he was appointed to one of Obamas cazars until Glenn Beck outed him

    I have been investigating and exposing mortgage based crimes for over a decade and have been harrassed, intimidated falsely arrested over and over again I have been held “under investigation” with no charges in California since Jan 2005. I came out to CA. to support a Republican governor and to fight the lending crooks Ameriquest, Option One and Countrywide in S.Cal. Most of our members of msfraud our legal group have been attacked by authorities and our evidence destroyed and stolen.
    It’s not a Democrat Republican issue our whole government is corrupt and they consider the law abiders a threat to themselves. Of course Democrats openly supported the Nanny state that seeks it’s own power and wealth at everyones expense but many Republicans were sadly stealth socialist/statitsts to many. The sad part there is many leftists accept true Constitutionaism and after educating them will even endorse true capitalism once they understand it’s a checkbook dictatorship of the people over corrupt coporations and illegitimate government.

    I had a brain bleed and surgery in 2005..,.coupled with a psychiatrist who sought to make a little extra insurance money during my hopital stay.
    When I refused and told him to go away, he threatened to “commit” me where I may never be found.
    That time I won. I’m an RN and using “committment” as a weapon is both unethical but powerful.
    Everyone should be worried about this election…Send Obama back to his Resko mansion in Chicago.
