Adam Kokesh’s home raided

AVTM Official Press Release – Adam Kokesh’s home raided

RE: Raid on ADAM VS THE MAN Studios 10JUL13(HERNDON, VA 10 JULY 2013)— On the evening of Tuesday, 09JUL13, at approximately 7:45 PM, a combination of US Parks Police (an arm of the DHS) raided Adam Kokesh’s residence. Local Herndon police assisted in the armed invasion. The officers used a battering ram to knock in the door after two knocks, and did not announce that they had a warrant. Immediately after breaking down the door, a flash bang grenade was deployed in the foyer. Numerous police vehicles, including a light armored vehicle and two low-flying helicopters barricaded Adam’s street. More than 20 armored SWAT team members surrounded the house, as well as a number of detectives, and plainclothes officers. Assault rifles were aimed on all members of the team as they were handcuffed without being told why they were detained. Masked and armored police in full “Storm Trooper” gear flooded in and ransacked the residence. The team was cordoned in a front room, while Adam was pulled aside for questioning.

Over the course of the next five hours, the police searched every corner of the house with canine units and blueprints to the house obtained prior to the search. All officers refused to speak to the crew while they we being detained. They confiscated cell phones and personal items with force. Throughout the ordeal, the police repeatedly showed a volatile desire to initiate aggressive, forceful conduct with detainees. At one point, Adam politely requested to use the restroom and was kicked by the officer forcing him to sit handcuffed on the floor. After hours of determined attempts, the safe was forced open and all items inside were confiscated. Adam was arrested and his crew were told he was being brought to the Herndon Police department overnight. Well after midnight, police officers cleared the house.

Fairfax County Adult Detention Center has stated that it has Adam in custody.

The ADAM VS THE MAN Team will be continuing production on the podcast and the Youtube channel as long as Adam remains imprisoned for an act of civil disobedience. We will continue to spread the message of liberty, self ownership, and the non-aggression principle regardless of the government’s relentless attacks on our operation. We will continue to combat its desperate attempts to crush a worldwide, revolutionary shift in the people’s understanding of the state’s illegitimacy—after all, good ideas don’t require force.

    There’s activism, where you get the message out, and then there’s just plain stupid.

    Michael Moore used to do all sorts of idiot stunts to try and grab attention. Hey, lets go visit the white hate parade and make fun of them. Hey, lets try to drive onto a Russian missile base!

    And at some point, he realized, yeah, the people at those places are primed for violence. Maybe messing with them for a TV gag was a bad idea when the punchline might mean someone gets killed. It was a different level of “fun” than goading some security goon at GM, or pestering the CEO of K-mart over ammo sales to the school shooter kids.

    As to the Kokesh stunt, maybe in his mind it made sense. Probably because he’s not dealing with a few hundred conspiracies a month by one group of nut jobs or another to try and make that sort of “statement” punctuated by actual gunshots. If he and his fanboys in the liberty community are not in touch with reality at that level, too bad, they get to learn the hard way that waving guns around the wrong places is a bad ideal.

    Michigan Escapee you obviously don’t get the point…this type of activism should make you wake up to the reality of what the state and government are. Instead you are sympathetic to your oppressors. If you’re happy with your condition why say anything? Just stand behind the tape and gawk it isn’t necessary to single yourself out!

  3. Michigan Escapee says:

    Yeah, yeah, all tragic, etc. Unfortunately, this guy seems to live for this kind of BS so he can get more publicity and liberty weenie street cred. If they didn’t get him this time, he’d just escalate the next stunt to something more reckless.

    Next up, another group not quite connected to reality will assemble a model tactical nuke in Times Square, sneak off before the cops show up, and show the video on YouTube. Gee, I wonder what will happen? Will the goons say “Wow, that’s clever!”, or will they mobilize a hundred goons to go out and flatten them? 😉

      You sound like a fed and you talk real tough behind your keyboard. Assuming your not a fed, what have you done for liberty? I bet nothing except talk.


      • Michigan Escapee says:

        lol. The closest I came to being a fed goon was when I had to cover for a friend who went to rehab, 3 times no less. It was a work from home or office gig, since he had problems getting to the office some mornings(which was odd since he worked 2pm-10pm) 😛

        Back then, there were no fusion centers. Just private industries who collected data on deadbeat dads, and eventually white hate groups, rabid foaming nutjob militias, drug gangs, etc.

        What can I say about having to churn through a sea of raw sewage, assorted poisons, and concentrated hate online? The less the better. 😀 If you wish, you can churn through a white hate site named after a weather phenomenon and see how long you can read through it without getting sick. Did I mention my friend went to rehab THREE times? 😉

        So what did I do for the liberty movement? Maybe I ignored some of the “excessive zeal” online instead of using it for quota fill. Maybe someone about to get swatted for drunken ravings online got a taste of WINNUKE until they sobered up enough to reinstall the drivers. And maybe all of the above is fiction. At least that’s what I tell myself before I start to get the urge to be drinkin. 😉 2 40s and a fifth a day, helps take the pain away. 😀
        Probably seeing a good therapist helps too, I did that, until her husband found out and put a stop to it. lol
