Kokesh Scam

American Soldier's Wife LLC©  12JUN2011

 Russian TV

A video was released this week by Adam Kokesh who demonstrated an act of civil disobedience within the Jefferson Memorial in DC because a ban was placed on singing and dancing within the memorial. 

Kokesh and his cronies, Code Pink, We Are Change, and other very liberal militia types decided to stage an act of civil disobedience in hopes of being arrested.  They succeeded.  They then immediately aired the video which soon went viral.  With the posts of the video, were pleas for contributions to go towards their bail.  Yet, in this video Kokesh admits he was not arrested but his pleas were for bail money for Kokesh.  He states in this video that only two of their people were arrested.  I have not ascertained whether or not those two actually even went to jail and were required to post bond.  Kokesh should be stopped from dancing as he is not a very good dancer. 

What is astonishing is how effective this tactic is because I was duped.  No, I didn’t donate money, but I was enraged at the scenes on the video.  I felt that I had to do something.  I felt called to action.  They won.  This is a very useful tactic. 

You may ask, what is wrong with that? What is wrong with giving to that cause?  First of all, if you are “staging” a civil disobedience act with the intention of getting arrested, then you should put up the bail money and not sucker those who are not so hip to such tactics into giving you their last dime.  I question whether or not he even was jailed.  They never showed any video of him being hauled off in a paddy wagon.  So, all those who gave money to “bail” Kokesh and his clan out of jail should be asking where is their money going and what is it supporting.

Civil Disobedience is historically reserved for those instances in which laws encroach on a society’s liberties such as slavery, women's suffrage, etc. There are individuals reining in on those who are gullible enough to believe in everything presented on YouTube, and cry out that they need bail money because they were "brutally beaten" by the police????  Give me a freaking break. These people brought that on themselves. This is NOT a case where a majority of the society is being infringed upon.

Show me where the injustice is. Are these people being discriminated against in any way?  No.  The ruling was based on the law that prohibits demonstrations within the memorial to preserve a reverent atmosphere for reflection and the group was well aware of it. “Courts consider memorials and monuments “nonpublic forums”, meaning they are not traditionally open for public debate, or dedicate to policy or public discourse. The judge’s ruling follows Supreme Court precedent establishing that the government “has the power to preserve the property for the purpose to which it is lawfully dedicated.” If restrictions are not based on any particular favor to one group over another these restrictions stand as lawful.  Why had they not utilized the lawful process already in place to seek to change the current standing law?  We do have order in this country, not anarchy, as Kokesh wishes for.

Why is it so difficult for them to allow people to enjoy and partake in the memorial in the manner in which it was created?  You have been duped.  This is absurd. What are they using the money for that was raised?  Show the arrest report.  Show the receipt of bail and how much it actually cost.  Show the names of those who were arrested.  Who do these groups have ties to besides Code Pink (Aid Flotilla to Hamas), MoveON.org, We Are Change (Aid Flotilla to Hamas), Medea Benjamin (Aid Flotilla to Hamas), Bernardine Dohrn (Aid Flotilla to Hamas), Bill Ayers (Aid Flotilla to Hamas), George Soros (Aid Flotilla to Hamas),Iraq Veterans against the War, the Truthers Movement, and on, and on.....

What’s the big deal about Code Pink you ask?  Code Pink was on that aid to Hamas (video) flotilla last year along with We are Change, Veterans Against the Iraq War, and International Socialist Organization to name a few… and has every plan to be on it in July of this year, along with Bill Ayers and George Soros of which we just recently were successful at banning from entering the U.S.  Watch this video on Kokesh and company. 

Kokesh’s anti-war group also stood with Today I am a Muslim, too rally in New York City hosted by stopislamaphobia.org.  A very small list of their endorsers is provided on their site:

Coalition Endorsements
Al-Awda NY:  The Palestine Right to Return Coalition
International Socialist Organization
Movement for a Democratic Society
World Can’t Wait
International Jewish Anti-Zionist Newtork
Labor for Palestine
New York City Labor Against the War
American Muslims for Palestine
Delaware Valley Veterans for America
Socialist Party of New York City
International Action Center
Peace Action New York State
Peace Action Staten Island
Iraq Veterans Against the War

Not on their list:
Cordoba House
Annenberg Public Policy Center

Code Pink is a supporter in several ways of Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ).  So, Adam Kokesh, along with his right hand man, Luke Rudkowski, also the founder of We Are Change and the 9/11 Truthers are not good people.  These people are very far left even though they claim Libertarian.  They are the militia, anti-government type who also fund Ron Paul and other 3rd parties.  These groups are very dangerous to our country and to the conservative principle. 

“Kokesh has a long history of working with Paul…” according to Heath Haussaman, who is a writer for The New Mexico Independent.   (2009)  Adam Kokesh receives funds from Ron and Rand Paul and he is a huge supporter of them (video) as well as Jerry Brown, and other political players.  Kokesh then funnels the money to Code Pink which is like “ACORN on steroids,”- Truth March, Iraq Veterans against the War, Green Peace, MoveON.org.  Not all find the relationship between the Paul’s and Kokesh very settling.  Ron Paul endorsed Kokesh’s run for congress in 2010 and Rand Paul invited Kokesh to speak at his campaign events.  Kokesh appeared in several videos with both Ron and Rand Paul.

Below you will find various petitions from CODE Pink and from Veterans for Peace on War is a Crime.  Take note of the signatories and their organizations they represent.   Bottom line:  Dance Demonstration at Jefferson Memorial was a created by and supported by many of the individuals and organizations mentioned in this article.   Adam Kokesh hangs around many socialist, left-wing progressives who seek to arrange their for their agenda in America by any means necessary, especially acts of civil disobedience and then play the conservative crowd for their money to fund their agenda as well as our enemy terrorists.
From Code Pink Site:
Medea Benjamin, Jodie Evans, Diane Wilson, Starhawk and about 100 other women kicked off CODEPINK on November 17, 2002. We set up for a 4-month all-day vigil in front of the White House during the cold of winter.
The vigil inspired people from all walks of life, and from all over the country, to stand for peace. Many organizations joined us, including Global Exchange, Greenpeace, WILPF, WAND, Public Citizen, NOW, Women for Women International and Neighbors for Peace and Justice. The vigil culminated on March 8, International Women's Day, when we celebrated women as global peacemakers with a week of activities, rallies and a march to encircle the White House in pink.
Over 10,000 people participated, and a group of 25 women, including Alice Walker, Maxine Hong Kingston, Susan Griffin, Starhawk, Jodie Evans and Medea Benjamin, were arrested for taking our peaceful protest right up to the White House gate.

Since then CODEPINK has become a worldwide network of women and men committed to working for peace and social justice. We have become famous for confronting the warmongers, whether in the halls and hearing rooms of Congress, the national conventions of both the Republicans and Democrats, George Bush's fundraisers, the publicity tours of Karl Rove, Condi Rice, Donald Rumsfeld and others, and Nancy Pelosi's house.
A Global Movement (Retrieved from CodePink site)
The peace movement is global: CODEPINK has strengthened our international ties through peacemaking delegations to Iran, Pakistan, Syria, Beirut , Iraq, Italy, the war tribunal in Turkey, Britain's Stop the War assembly, a gathering in Thailand of women worldwide, and our participation in the World Social Forum in Brazil and Venezuela.
Former Weather Underground leaders William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, as well as Code Pink founder Jodie Evans, helped organize the Free Gaza Movement, which launched the six-ship flotilla from Turkey to Israel that ended in a violent clash with Israeli Defense Forces, BigGovernment.com reported.

In January, the trio was spotted in Egypt attempting to stir up crowds on the streets with 1,400 other left-wing activists after the Egyptian government refused to allow Free Gaza Movement members to enter the Gaza Strip. About 100 marchers were eventually allowed to cross the border, where they were met by former Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh.

On October 4, 2007 CODEPINK (Retrieved from Code Pink site): Women for Peace cofounder Medea Benjamin and Retired Colonel/diplomat Ann Wright were denied entry to Canada because they have engaged in acts of non-violent civil disobedience against the war in Iraq. The Canadian border officials said the women's names appeared on an FBI criminal database and that anyone convicted of a criminal offense, including a minor misdemeanor for peace and social justice, was "inadmissible."

It is so very sad to see that the Canadian government is following in the footsteps of the US government.... blithely making bad decisions while its people decry and condemn its policies. It is past time that our respective governments RESPECT and OBEY the wishes of the PEOPLE!!

I found Canada to be a welcoming country in need in the past. I've studied there and left the US for Taiwan shortly after the 2004 election results were tallied. I will return for the 2008 elections, but in the meantime, this administration and it's cronies have ruined diplomacy worldwide and the individual rights of all humans have been attacked with intent to harm. The results are devastating. Thank you to all the Canadians who I work with overseas while the pot boils over.

nous devons tous nous unir pour mettre fin à ces inacceptables atteintes à nos libertés d'expression, donc aux droits humains, donc à la démocratie !!! le Canada - Comme les pays européens d'ailleurs, s'honorerait de résister aux pressions des "fauteurs de guerre" tous azimuts du gouvernement étatsunien.... Rien de bon n'est jamais sorti d'une guerre, que des souffrances et des régressions humaines !

We are being harrassed by our government for wanting an end to this violence and for wanting peace for all. Please don't follow suit by joining our now fascist governmental disrespect for people who disagree. Don't blacklist us as the Bush admisistration has.
