Kidnapped Marine Speaks Out: 'I'm Scared For My Country'

Former Marine Brandon Raub speaks to John Whitehead in a one on one interview. Raub’s case went viral on the Internet earlier this month when on August 16, the former Iraq and Afghanistan veteran was kidnapped from his home by police, FBI and Secret Service agents and forcibly incarcerated in a psychiatric ward by authorities in Virginia in response to Facebook posts which the FBI deemed “terrorist” in nature.

Raub was released after a week when a judge concluded that the original petition ordering him to be detained contained no information whatsoever on the reasons behind Raub’s incarceration.

Raub explained that one of his main concerns in being publicly vocal about his concerns with the activity of the U.S. government was executive orders that allow the state to seize dictatorial power in a time of crisis, including the seizure of private property, communications and the institution of forced labor camps.

When Raub asked what he thought of the whole experience, Raub responded, “It made me scared for my country, the idea that a man can be snatched out of his property without being read his rights should be extremely alarming to all Americans.”

Info Wars reports of Raub's kidnapping,

“At the beginning it was very vague, it was almost as if they wanted me to volunteer information,” said Raub, adding that he had to draw out of them the reason for the visit, which eventually turned out to be the content of his Facebook posts.

Raub then stepped outside to speak to a Secret Service agent who quizzed him about his political beliefs.

“I mentioned the Bilderberg Group and their violation of politicians in this country meeting with them and specifically the Logan Act,” said Raub, adding that the Secret Service agents were taking notes to research the topics further at a later time.

After around 15 minutes of conversation, the police surrounded Raub and grabbed him, failing to read him his Miranda rights. When Raub appealed to the police to allow him to put some clothes on, even at gunpoint, the cops refused.

“I realized that they weren’t going to read me my rights and they weren’t arresting me, so I basically just decided to make it more difficult for them to take me,” said Raub, explaining why the video shows him dropping to the floor.

After his detention, Raub was given a hearing date and moved to a psychiatric ward three hours away from his family and legal team. Shortly before his eventual release, a psychiatrist threatened to forcibly medicate Raub in order to “brainwash” him.

John Whitehead emphasizes how 20 people in the same county as Raub have been similarly “disappeared” so far in the month of August alone.

This story sends chills down my spine. Yet, many people are under the illusion that it won't happen to them. Wake up, it can happen to any of us. One thing is for sure, the government is definitely trying to silence us through intimidation. They want us silent, because they know that America is waking up. They don't want that. For we are "The Sleeping Giant". Fear not those who can take your body, fear the One that can take your soul. Resistance, along with being armed with knowledge is how we will help defeat this tyranny that is going on within our government. The treacherous acts that are coming, and have already happened against our own people. The resistance, will win if we unite. Many are uniting in the cause of freedom, and many are waking up to the oppression of our twisted government. Buckle down, because we're in this together.

For Freedom, for God, for America. Now more than ever we all have to band together as one and call out our battle cry of FREEDOM.

    All  300,000,000 of them?
    How on Earth could he do it even if he even wanted to?

    You fall for this round of logic like the idiots who fell for "Beanie Babies"!
    A gimmick based of the greed of the supplier and not any real threat...

    You who have so much fear and profess so much faith
    are falling away from the wonderful  teachings of Jesus who
    based ALL His teachings on love and faith.


  • ZagoZana

    And the "Quarter of a Billionaire" whose fortune is hidden and has Lyin' Ryan puking up of purges is only thinking of the little children and sweetness and purity?
    Too bad your ears and eyes are lyin' to you.
    HEY, remeber all your weaponry?
    Who would ever try to cross you like that and face the consequences?   
    They know how dangerous you guys are.

    The Democrats are SATANIC, REALLY?
    We have been fighting in the Middle East for more than 10 years.
    Now the crazy old man McCain is talking of sending us into
    two new wars  is Syria and Iran.
    This is Jesus' dream for us?

    Woman, the Blacks and the poor are much better off because of our work.

    You management team is only motivated by wealth and greed
    while wearing a vale of "Christianity".

     ...road to a Representative Republic?????

    Represented by whom? The multi-billionaires who have sold this country to the highest bidders like ROBME and the Waltons  and those who have off shored us.

    If he thinks so much about our country why is most all "his" money overseas?
    It started with Reagan and "TINKLE DOWN ECONOMICS".

    It really started going viral when these uber-rich were given huge tax-cutsduring the admonistration of  two wars!

           It's like when Curly drilled a hole in there sinking boat to let the water out!

    You call sharing Communism? Like having them actually pay,
    through their taxes,  for the infrastructure they use that makes
    them their money like roads, bridges and airports.

    As Dylan said:          "MONEY DOES TALK, IT SCREAMS!"

     The only ,,,,,,,, reason they are a power in the world right now is because of a freer people and even freer markets  ( as in capitalism ) . Yes the government still owns them. But they have had ,,, to open it up so people could make a living too. And that ,,, is all the proof ,, you should need ... to know that communism  DOES NOT WORK .....

    AND NO, I will not settle for this half way measure where government owns companies, health care, and dictates ,,, what our lives are all about .

    It is time to  -END - THIS FARCE - , the politicians have been foisting on the American people for so long. I hope you  - ALL - make the right decision. -  LIFE AND PROSPERITY ,,, OR D E A T H ,, AND DESTRUCTION.

    or 2, a road to the right ???. 

    " THERE CAN BE , ONLY ONE "  to coin a phrase I once heard lol.

  • har82

    Well, I for one can honestly say that Raub, is not the only one who is afraid for his country. And my children's lives , as well as my own , for that matter . They pretty much have the same attitude toward government as I do lol.

    With all that - congress- ,  AND  bammie , has been allowed to do in the last 3.8 years is frankly astonishing.... And d a  m  n scary .

    The current Democrat Party government is Satanic to the core. The tactics they are using to silence and intimidate the dissenters have been used by other left wing Dictators in the past such as Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot etc. The psychiatric field is filled with demonic, maniacal perverts who practice high tech witchcraft with their psycho babble and chemicals. Sadly those that have the mark of the beast actually believe God's chosen are evil and they are good. They are under a strong delusion, which can only be lifted by God, Jesus the Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. The bad news is those who are not written in the lambs book of life will worship the beast. This is why no matter what evil Obama and the Democrat politicians do, they will always have a sizeable percentage of the public that will bow at their feet. As for me and my house, we will serve the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Buckle in boy and girls, Satan is on the prowl in these last, last days, him and his human representatives will martyr many of God's chosen right before God's appearance.

    Would U.S. Armed Forces Use
    NDAA To Detain, Interrogate, Torture Americans That Are Not Terrorists?

    NDAA, the U.S. Armed Forces may arrest not just terrorist suspects, but
    Americans the Government deems Belligerent. During the Obama Administration’s recent
    appeal to stop a judge’s injunction that blocked enforcement of some NDAA
    provisions, the Administrated stated they were justified and have the
    authorization to lock belligerents up indefinitely—because cases involving
    belligerents directly-aligned with militants against the good of
    America—warrants such punishment.

    Obama administration did not define what is a (belligerent); or militant, or
    what belligerent activities (directly align with a militant to order an
    American’s arrest or indefinite detention; or what is against the good of
    America.  The U.S. Government could
    charge as a militant e.g. any protestor, political organization or lawful
    unorganized militia. The Government could arbitrarily charge that any
    statement, writing or communication with any person or group that government
    deems militant is (directly aligned) to arrest Americans. Writers and
    journalists that disagree with or question U.S. Government or its allies—could
    be subject to indefinite detention on the basis their statements or writings
    were “against the good of America.” The Nazi Government used similar laws to
    NDAA to arrest, disappear and execute without probable cause—political
    opposition and to confiscate property of those they arrested.

    broad provisions of 2013 NDAA, U.S. Government or the President could order the
    round up any number of Americans alleged to be belligerents or threat to
    National Security. The Obama Administration wants the power to incarcerate in
    indefinite detention “American Belligerents” without probable cause, evidence,
    or charges, with no right to an attorney or habeas corpus. Increasingly some
    observers believe NDAA included the term “Belligerent” so U.S. Government would
    have authority granted by Congress to—Indefinitely Detain large numbers of
    Americans (without evidence of wrongdoing) for example arrest lawful Americans
    on the premise their—1st Amendment activities appeared intended or used to
    support or provoke—hostilities, combatants, terrorism or belligerents; posed a
    threat to National Security. Hitler included similar broad provisions in his
    Discriminatory Decrees signed February 28, 1933—that allowed German Police and
    Reich Authorities to arrest without evidence, any person authorities deemed
    inciting public unrest; that included German journalists, peaceful protestors,
    artists; Germans dancing the Jitterbug were arrested for inciting. Hitler’s
    1933 fascist Decrees unlike the 2013 NDAA, never called for indefinite
    detention of belligerents or persons inciting public unrest. Specific Jail time
    and fines were ordered. 2013 NDAA and Hitler’s 1933 Decrees are similar, both
    the U.S. and Reich laws allow forced government censorship; warrant-less
    searches of private property and property forfeiture of arrested persons not
    charged with crime. Under the Patriot Act, lending itself to corruption, the
    U.S. Government may use secret witnesses and informants to cause civil asset
    forfeiture of Americans’ property—the witness(s) and informants are paid up to
    50% of assets forfeited. Federal Government is only required to use a
    preponderance of civil evidence, little more than hearsay to Civilly Forfeit
    Private Property. Under the Patriot Act Innocent property owners may be barred
    from knowing or challenging the evidence federal government uses to confiscate
    their property.

    in 2013 NDAA keep the door open for corrupt U.S. police; government agents and
    provocateurs which there are many, to falsify reports and statements to target
    any American, group or organization for arrest or disappearance; forfeit the
    assets of any person or business.

    of 2013 are so broadly written, it appears U.S. Government or the President
    could (retroactively) deem any American’s 1st Amendment activities prior to
    passage of 2012 NDAA supported hostilities, terrorism or (Belligerents) to
    order the arrest and Indefinite Detention of any American, writer, group or

    It should be expected under NDAA that
    indefinitely detained U.S. Citizens not involved in terrorism or hostile
    activities, not given Miranda Warnings when interrogated, not allowed legal
    counsel or habeas corpus may be prosecuted for non-terrorist (ordinary crimes)
    because of their (alleged admissions) while held in Indefinite Detention.

  • har82

    For 20 people to just disappear like this tells you all you need  to know about - so called law enforcement- . they will do exactly ,, what their bosses ( city, state , and federal  governments ) , ask them to do.  THEY ARE NOT ,,, OUR FRIENDS ANYMORE. unfortunately. THEY WOULD NOT LIKE TO LOSE ,,, THEIR JOBS IN THESE TIMES i THINK.

    I would wager to think they would rather be part of the power structure,, rather than the victims . Believe me , I do not say this lightly .

  • Hankr

    Is this for real?  If twenty others from the same county have been "disappeared" like Raub was, what are THEIR names and why haven't we heard anything about that like we did about Raub?  What offenses had they supposedly committed?  Have they been released yet?  Where are they being held?

    If you're going to state such things, you should be prepared to back them up with facts, figures, names and locations.  Otherwise, you're just a gossip rag.

    • Robert Prinz

      I guess you think your comment here will keep barack hussein obamas secret service police from your door steps then you are mistaken for bHo only cares about himself & no one else.
