Veterans are being arrested by Secret Service for making anti-Obama Facebook posts, sometimes the very next day after creating a post – a practice which has been going on for quite some time.

All the while, our police force is being militarized at an alarming rate, with veterans being cited as one reason why. This is revealed in a statement made last month by  Sgt. Dan Downing of the Morgan County, Ind. Sheriff’s Department, he stated “The weaponry is totally different now that it was in the beginning of my career, plus, you have a lot of people who are coming out of the military that have the ability and knowledge to build IEDs and to defeat law enforcement techniques.”

DHS has specific programs to silence veterans, such as Operation Vigilant Eagle, which was started in 2009. See more on thisprogram below.

We’ve seen the Washington Times report on a memo detailing Obama’s plan to use the military against citizens. Of coursestrategically it makes sense that in any such war, the first targets would be those who can defeat local law enforcement, organize others into field-ready teams, and train the other patriots in the finer points of combat: our veterans.

 In the four years since the start of Operation Vigilant Eagle, the government has steadily ramped up its campaign to “silence”dissidents, especially those with military backgrounds. Coupled with the DHS’ dual reports on Rightwing and Leftwing “Extremism,” which broadly define extremists as individuals and groups “that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely,” thesetacticshave boded ill for anyone seen as opposing the government.

One particularly troubling mental health label being applied to veterans and others who challenge the status quo is “oppositional defiance disorder” (ODD). As journalist Anthony Martin explains, an ODD diagnosis

“denotes that the person exhibits ‘symptoms’ such as the questioning of authority, the refusal to follow directions, stubbornness, the unwillingness to go along with the crowd, and the practice of disobeying or ignoring orders. Persons may also receive such a label if they are considered free thinkers, nonconformists, or individuals who are suspicious of large, centralized government… At one time the accepted protocol among mental health professionals was to reserve the diagnosis of oppositional defiance disorder for children or adolescents who exhibited uncontrollable defiance toward their parents and teachers.”

The case of 26-year-old decorated Marine Brandon Raub—who was targeted because of his Facebook posts, interrogated by government agents about his views on government corruption, arrested with no warning, labeled mentally ill for subscribing to so-called “conspiratorial” views about the government, detained against his will in a psych ward for standing by his views, and isolated from his family, friends and attorneys—is a prime example of the government’s war on veterans.

Raub’s case exposes the seedy underbelly of a governmental systemthat is targeting Americans—especially military veterans—for expressing their discontent over America’s rapid transition to a policestate.


  1. Our ‘marxist-muslim ‘controlled govt should be removed by a coalition consisting of the US Military and the FREE STATES that have not accepted total domination by our ‘unamerican federal govt ‘! Merely holding office or being members of ‘oppressive govt agencies’ does not make these peoples actions LEGAL or RIGHT , we , the people own everything in this nation and have a right to make all govt subservient to the will and preferences of loyal, legal, patriotic Americans ! Global totalitarianism and the “destructive acts ” being thrust upon Americans should be met with overt physical resistance and removal of all govt that goes against the US Constitution and traditional American beliefs !

  2. Looking at this post, it simply tells me that even though they say they are here to help american’s – there only desire is to stay in control. But don’t come to realize that even those out in our everyday people. It dose not take a veteran to outsmart stupidity-

  3. What about the many who have already been tortured and killed for their anti-Obama comments? And the hundreds of thousands put in concentration camps under the wall marts? Why don’t you report on that? You sold out to Obama, didm;t you?

  4. They are afraid of us Veterans and they’re doing everything they can to round us up before slamming the hammer down on the citizen Patriots!

  5. So, there is no longer free speech In the United States of America? When will they be shutting down Facebook? This has gone WAY TO FAR ! Obama has no more rights of doing things like this than any other President had. It needs to be stopped. He is stomping all over the United States Constitution and needs to be arrested and impeached !

  6. fuck obama, fuck the government, and fuck those who take away rights. im very close to siding with islam because obama is turning this country into a dictatorship and he’s on the fucking loose. fuck obama in the ass with his dad’s dildo, fuck the government for lying and arresting the innocent

  7. 1St….army does not wear awards and ribbons and brass rank on collar . rank is worn on the center chest of the new uniform. This bull shit. I hate the deuche in office but for fk sake..

  8. Obama’s supposed mother was not old enough to convey citizenship rights to this child. According to British archives received from British East Africa Protectorate he was born there. (now Kenya) . These are facts… Reading the Constitution of the United States, I come to ARTICLE I, SECTION VIII, CLAUSE X. Congress shall have the power to define and punish… offences against the Law of Nations.

    Maybe I better read the Law of Nations to see what powers Congress has before I go on..

    OK I have read the Law of Nations, now to continue with the Constitution. I come to ARTICLE II, SECTION I, CLAUSE V. No person except a “natural born citizen”…. shall be eligible to the office of president.

    Didn’t I just read who was a “natural born citizen” in the Law of Nations? Yes I remember that, BOOK I, CHAPTER 19, ARTICLE 212.

    A natural born citizen is one born on the land with both parents as citizens of that nation when he is born.

    Knowing what we have just read, why is obama in the White House??

  9. It’s sad when our veterans are singled out like this for doing only what hundreds of others on FB do every day when they make fun of Obama & his outrageous antics. I am a 68 yr old little lady with the strength of a kitty, but I would gladly have fought for my country just like these veterans have done & with all they have seen in war, I would also feel as strongly as they do about things happening in our country right now! I hope voters will take a good hard look at all elections & try to get people in office who really care about our country & will do something positive for a change. God bless this young man for standing up for his beliefs!

  10. I noticed there wasn’t a single example nor was there an amount of people being arrested. Awful journalism and fear mongering. Please give us an example so we can judge whether it was threatening enough to warrant a visit form the secret service.

  11. This is AMERICA!!! FREE SPEECH!!! unless you have a DICTATOR IN THE MAKING!!! Nobody arrested ANYONE for saying ANTI REPUBLICAN Presidents.!!!

  12. The sad part is most civilian and military personnel don’t realize is military personnel have taken a sworn oath and in that oath it states to protect the nation from foreign and domestic terrorist and the sooner we all realize that we have a corporate paid for government the sooner we may be able to fix our mistakes and get living back to what it used to be the pockets are to deep to fill anymore and the working class is sinking because of it if the lot doesn’t stand against the few we will never recover we can’t expect a 4 or 8 year term to fix 25 years of mistakes……words of a combat veteran may God help the people that get punished for standing for their country

  13. Are they taking them to the FEMA camps that have been staffed? I would sure like to know why they have staff at at the so called abandoned FEMA camp and will not let anyone film there.

  14. would you care to elaborate on the walmart camps. i have seen the tunneling drills arriving underground at walmarts around the country.

  15. remember when they were called heros? i knew it was a crock of shit just a ploy to get the people behind a war in Iraq..or as project for a new american century says: ‘..a helpful pearl harbor like event..’i.e. 911

  16. look into operation jade helm 15 and what the AI they were using is for. looking for pockets of veterans. of course they are concerned with them they know the truth and have seen it first hand.

  17. how terrible!!!! if we cant be against Obama then why have an election at all? I don’t want Obama or Hillary, I want trump! if that’s illegal then we have a corrupt nation! why not just have a dictator? this is The united states of America! WE ARE ONE NATION, UNDER GOD IN DIVISABLE, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL.Donald trump for president!!!!

  18. MKT Thompson For President…American Peoples Action Party

    Obama, the congress and have allowed known Muslims with terrorists ties to be placed in sensitive high ranking government positions. Have supported terrorist groups. Have forced the immigration of terrorists into our states and cities. Have taken monies from terrorist organizations or organizations that support terrorists. Have tried to destroy Christianity. Have used an Orwellian strategy to recast American History. Are threatening the people with punitive actions if they do not cow tow to this behavior. If elected I will have a Military Tribunal investigate just who was giving aid and comfort to the enemy. Just who betrayed America and Americans. Just who in our Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branch and others should be charged and tried for Treason.

  19. Jonn Lilyea I don’t know who is shown in the picture, and I can’t enlarge it in order to get a good look, but he appears to be wearing an Army Commendation Medal ABOVE a Purple Heart, which is incorrect. Consequently, I sincerely doubt he is a veteran, who would know better.

  20. l say just go in shoot the fucker in the head an hang his fucking family out to dry for the facist racist dogs that they are,, fuck l would gladly put a bullet into Ofagamas head .. l got nothing to lose period, l lived my life an hats wrong with me there is no cure unfortunately

  21. Right. ….dude…..there are secret concentration camps under every Walmart.
    Perhaps the reason that these people were thrown into prison is because they thought that there were secret concentration camps under all the Walmarts. Yeah maybe that’s it and they were really just crazy.

  22. I will say any fucking thing i want to becausè I AM AN AMERICAN I AM FREE TO SAY ANYTHING I WANT TO obama & killary want to chg or get rid of CONSTITUTION. THEY WANT DICTATORSHIP FUCK YOU YOU BOTH DESERVE TO HO TO PRISON IN MEXICO OR I KNOW GO TO islamic PRISON I WOULD BE SO PROUND TO WATCH YOU ack for diapers there you are both so convinced yo < are right that you have become mentally unstable treasonous people used to die right there where they were caught i think thats what needs to happen to you both. AND THEN WE WILL PUT IN ON TV TO HELP THE KILLING NON CITZENS THAT YOU LIKE WILL LEAVE US THE FUCK ALONE GO HOME AND WE CAN KILL THEM THERE. GO STRAIGHT TO HELL.

  23. OMG Where is your head at fuckyou? Obama is a fucking Muslim!! If you become a Muslime you will fall inline with my sights and I’ve got an itchy trigger finger.

  24. questioning of authority, the refusal to follow directions, stubbornness, the unwillingness to go along with the crowd, and the practice of disobeying or ignoring orders. Persons may also receive such a label if they are considered free thinkers, nonconformists, or individuals who are suspicious of large, centralized government… These are the principles that our country was founded on…

  25. Snopes is owned by a liberal couple…of course they will be biased…
    Go to to read the truth by conservative group.
    Late 2006 I posted many times about this fellow and what his agenda
    would be…Sad no one believed me, and voted for him anyway.
    You gets what you pays for.

  26. For years there’s been homeless vets standing at the freeway entrances begging for money in triple digit temperatures. It’s cooler now, beautiful weather, but no vets on the on ramps. Where did they go?

  27. Can you post our brothers info and what facility they are locked up in so we can put money on their commissary accounts?

  28. What has happened to our right to freedom of speech. Obama is not a ruler, he is just another person that puts his pants on the same way everyone else does. People have complained about presidents since the beginning of the existence of presidents. What a thin skin this man has, everyone at one time or another complains about their boss. Think Obama has gone a little overboard now. What he has done for our military can fit in a thimble and it totally stinks. People we need to protest.

  29. Please do not believe any thing from snopes , they are just an old man and old lady spreading their thoughts . Others have investigated them !

  30. It Happened in 2012, lets see just Who was president then?? Ohh Yes the Muslim Loving OBAMA…Our Military has never really had respect for Him, and this is just 1 of the ways He abused our Vets. Yes I am glad he is out of office and Yes I am glad Hilda beast did Not get in. And if you choose not to believe when I say it happened the following is proof.
