Last August, former Marine Brandon Raub was arrested by the Secret Service and FBI, taken into custody and placed in a psychiatric institution where he was told he would be forced to take medication which he did not want. He was freed approximately one week later after a federal judge reviewed his detention and found no probable cause by which to hold him. Raub's plight was taken up by The Rutherford Institute, which is suing the government on Raub's behalf for an unspecified amount. In a May 22, 2013 press release, Rutherford stated:

The complaint, filed in federal court in Richmond, alleges that Raub's seizure and detention were the result of a federal government program code-named "Operation Vigilant Eagle" that involves the systematic surveillance of military veterans who express views critical of the government. Institute attorneys allege that the attempt to label Raub as "mentally ill" and his involuntary commitment was a pretext designed to silence Raub's speech critical of the government and that the defendants violated Raub's rights under the First and Fourth Amendments.

Following Raub's highly-publicized case, Rutherford revealed that hundreds of other military veterans had contacted them to relate similar stories of government intimidation and people "disappearing." Rutherford Institute President John Whitehead stated that "Brandon Raub's case exposed the seedy underbelly of a governmental system that is targeting military veterans for expressing their discontent over America's rapid transition to a police state."

Two days before announcing the civil rights lawsuit, Whitehead expounded on Operation Vigilant Eagle, which was launched by the Department of Homeland Security, Department of Justice and the FBI to observe "veterans" for alleged signs of "extremism" and "oppositional defiance disorder (ODD)." Whitehead also wrote:
www.ppsimmons.blogspot.com...
That the government is using the charge of mental illness as the means by which to immobilize (and disarm) these veterans is diabolically brilliant. With one stroke of a magistrate's pen, these service men are being declared mentally ill, locked away against their will, and stripped of their constitutional rights. Make no mistake, these returning veterans are being positioned as enemy number one.


First I have ever heard of operation Vigilant Eagle

en.wikipedia.org...

Operation Vigilant Eagle is an American law-enforcement effort headed by the FBI aimed at preventing political violence by "lone wolf" terrorists. The operation was first mentioned in the Wall Street Journal in April 2009.[1]

Sound honorable doesn't it?

I am sure the administration would be happy to point out that, instead of having you murdered... they just have you committed... a kinder, gentler rogue state...

Your title says Navy Seal. The article says he was a Marine. Two different branches of service. Navy Marine?

Brandon Raub was a jackass trying to sell gold and other things with the fear of government tyranny. And it was nothing more than a sales gimmick to him. So how is that a hero?

The original judge who released him even added the word agist to describe Brandon.

www.thefreedictionary.com...



agist [əˈdʒɪst] vb (tr) Law 1. (Law) to care for and feed (cattle or horses) for payment 2. (Law) to assess and charge (land or its owner) with a public burden, such as a tax [from Old French agister, from gister to lodge, ultimately from Latin jacēre to lie down]


Feeding the sheeple for money. Conning and propaganda for profit.

The error isn't yours
you used the title given by your source

perhaps the nitpickers should contact your source and inform it of the error
instead of posting off topic comments/nitpicking that fail to address and "debunk" the OP thus allowing the sheeple to go back to their mindless consuming while the nation and world crashes and burns?


i hear the sucking of koolaid slurpees makes you mindlessly parrot whatever BS the government and it's agents [known pathological liars, murderers, and thieves] make up, or print out on official stationary.

something you might want to keep in mind as you deal with replies on this thread.

So when do we rise up and do something about it all? Or...are you just going to sit there and be a condescending keyboard warrior?

I mean, the way you talk you act like you're on the streets causing things to happen that will change this.

What are YOU actively doing besides being snarky on an internet website?

I've known about this operation for a while. I was afraid I was going to be targeted, so I had to pull back on the messages I was putting out on social networking sites. Yes, it's probably safer to not have one to some of you. But when they begin profiling people to have mental problems because they don't have a Facebook or something is when it's beneficial to have one and put up a facade that you're just average Joe American.

"you used the title given by your source"

Where is that source? Wiki page is not related to the story copy pasted. You must have brain freeze from "sucking of koolaid slurpees"


If it was not for the copy paste containing a link you would not be able to find the story.

I knew it was just a matter of time before the government started using the ODD diagnosis to lock people up. That one was specifically designed for keeping dissenters out of the public eye. We shall see ODD used a lot from now on.

Most street gangs are black or hispanic.
Going after street gangs as domestic terrorist would be racist as per the black and hispanic community leaders.

Very true. It would be racist to deem anyone a terrorist who is not white or Arabic.
