Thomas Paine wrote the “Crisis” after the defeats of the Continental Army at the hands of the British and Hessian troops in New York and Fort Lee. The Continental troops were in retreat across the Delaware river into Pennsylvania. In this retreat massive amounts of supplies were left behind, and many troops deserted and ran off.
George Washington and the remnants of his Army planned to attack the Hessian garrison at Trenton New Jersey in the early morning hours of December 26th 1776. The troops were clothed is rags, with burlap tied around their feet instead of shoes and boots. They braved crossing the half frozen Delaware river in the middle of a winter Northeaster storm. The troops were sick and worn from the forced retreat across New Jersey and Pennsylvania. However, these brave soldiers followed George Washington to battle the crack Hessian Mercenary troops, who had slaughtered Continental prisoners in New York. It was common knowledge that this was a battle, a desperate battle, to save the American Revolution. Washington and his troops knew the grave consequences. The tremendous bravery exhibited by these nameless thousands gave all of us the gift of Freedom and Liberty. They became known as the Winter Soldiers, the men we owe everything too!
In recognition of the the sacrifice of these soldiers, the following words were written by Thomas Paine in 1776; “These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph”. December 23, 1776 Thomas Paine “Crisis”
There are two groups in our recent history who have stolen and corrupted Thomas Paine’s tribute to these brave revolutionary soldiers names, and in so doing have attempted to disgrace them and dishonor them. The first group was the Vietnam Veterans Against War (VVAW), a Marxist front group lead by John F. Kerry. The second was Iraq Veterans Against War (IVAW), lead by Adam Kokesh. They both held “Winter Soldier” conferences in which they attempted to call American troops “War Criminals”. I find the naming of such events offensive and a slap in the face to the four divisions of Revolutionary War heroes who were willing to lay down their lives for our Freedom and Liberty.
Every veteran who has followed those four divisions of the first true Winter Soldiers in defense of our Freedom and Liberties are the true American heroes. John Kerry, Adam Kokesh, and the treasonous scum who sat with them and conspired against the true American Winter Soldiers are cowards, who besmirch true American heroes. I find the VVAW and IVAW and their membership to be the most reprehensible citizens in America. They were part of this Band of Brothers, but chose instead to betray them and their country. I find no honor in trying to talk with people who wish to replace my Republic and my form of government with Marxism or Islam and commit me into slavery. Our core values are polar opposite philosophies. I can not compromise my values, there is no middle ground. There can be only one outcome and that is the total defeat of one side or the other.
APAK wields a Terrible Swift Sword. The sword of truth, lies and deception cannot be cloaked. When you spent years of your life engaged in treason in the public arena, holding yourself up as the great anti american warrior. You get exposed. In your Narcissistic displays in the public arena, and than document your exploits on the Internet to prove your street credibility, with the communist anti-war movement. You leave a trail so wide I could drive a truck down it. The truth in the case of Adam Kokesh doesn’t require any embellishment. What Adam has accomplished is exposing all the phony conservatives such as Ron and Rand Paul, many of the Liberty Candidates, the Liberty Tree group and the Daily Paul. These so called Ron Paul Republicans. The thing that has become so obvious to all of us is the plank in your platform that you hold most scared is your anti-war anti-military platform. You hold this plank so dear you will sell out all your so called values to obtain it. You stand with ALL the communist anti-war left. In your bizarre logic you thought all the Patriotic Conservatives would be so caught up in Countering Barack Hussein Obama’s coup d’état” of American, nobody would notice Ron Paul’s attempted take over of the conservative movement. Much in the same way the anti-American Progressives took over the Democrat Party. Nice try Ron ole boy, almost worked. What you didn’t plan on was the handful of American Patriot Mil bloggers and American Patriots who can multi task. Sending out the illiterate Susman and other useful idiots to defend your anti-american activities with threats of law suits will not work. You think our side does not have legal council, you are all bigger buffoons than we first suspected. I do thank Adam without him shinning the spotlight on himself, we would never have been made aware of Ron Paul, Oath Keepers, Liberty Candidates and Ron Paul’s gigantic web of decievers and false flag operations.
God Bless America

Jonn covered this earlier, but it’s been pissing me off all day. First, I want to go through his missive. He is bold and italicized, mine will be regular.
On behalf of Liberty Candidates, as I am one, I find your actions abhorrent and unlawful. Those organizations using a 503c Charitable Organization charter will be subject to diciplinary measures by the authorities in your respective states.
Your spelling is atrocious, your logic is faulty, and you are a ri-tard. What orgnizations are you referring to that do the remainder that have a 503c, and do you understand what that means?
This serves as notification that Liberty Candidates, all 126+ are in the process of filing legal action against your all of the organizations in the coming week. For those of you that are private citizens that participated in this outrageous action, I should hope that you are financially well off.
I speak on behalf of the worlds interest when I say that I look forward to this treatise of masterpiece of jurisprudence with the same trepidation as I did the time my buddy told me he had a video of a midget playing baseball with a Louisville slugger hanging out of his ass. I am not well off, but take great interest in being part of your suit, see later for details.
Your plan to threaten the citizens of the United States into not donating to a political candidate of their choice and in their state violates many laws that we do not have enough paper to possibly list here. Groups holding a 503c charter are prohibited from endorsing ANY particular candidate. By slandering Adam Kokesh, Candidate for New Mexico’s race, you have indirectly endorsed Lujan. All candidates have suffered large financial losses to their campaign funding, so enjoy your moment of gloating. It will be short lived.
Wow. Just wow.
As Yoda might say: The ri-tard is strong in this one.
As a decent lawyer might tell you: Get the fahk out of my office and come back with a real cause of action.
Rest assured, we have employed several laywers that will work on a pro bono basis to recoup these losses from your hate groups. This is your one and only notice to CEASE and DESIST from these types of unlawful activities. We are asking for the sum of $126,000,000.00 (one hundred and twenty-six million dollars) from each group responsible for these actions.
I herewith and in perpetuity do hereby proclaim that by virtue of the magna carta, the emancipation proclamation, the deed to my manor at Blackacre, and by the power coursing through my veins granted me by the sword, battle-charger and the power of Grey Skull that your petition herewith also call for Sharks with fricken sweet-ass laser beams attached to their heads.
We will begin serving these complaints in the next 7-10 days, one as a class action lawsuit, and should that fail; each candidate will be serving their own individual complaints against you following that. I suggest you focus your activities on a local level, and be more productive in helping those in your communities. You have run up against a large group of determined individuals that refuse to be stopped in their quest to return America back to the Constitution. We will use this great document to the fullest extent in making sure that the 2010 elections are not influnced by hate groups such as yours.
I have spent the better part of 3 weeks going through defamation lawsuits filed by both private and public figures. For the love of the Holy Mother of Spongebob, pray point me to ONE, JUST ONE, that went your way when dealing with supposed defamation against a public figure. Your lawsuit is bullshit.
And what is the lawsuit?
RE: Slander, Libelous Statements, Use of threats, coersion to prevent income, tampering with election funding, use of misleading video clips and doctored footage.
Slander: defense of truth, various First Amendment protections, marketplace of ideas, etc. Look them up.
Libelous Statements: see above.
Use of Threats: where? You should know that threats can be difficult, and are not generally a cause of action for a person, rather this would probably fall under criminal.
coersion to prevent income: Now you are just making shit up.
tampering with election funding: Not a cause of action, making shit up again.
use of misleading video clips and doctored footage: Misleading video clips not illegal. Doctored footage where? Um, wouldn’t that pretty much screw all media outlets? Also, not a cause of action.
Also- I note at your Facebook page you state:
Even if we don’t win these suits-we need to prove a point and put an end to this!
Ah, so you admit your case is horseshit, but you are pushing forward with it to “prove a point.” You know what they call a lawyer who takes a case to court that has no merit based exclusively on the premise of “making a point”? In the legal world we call that: really fucked. Like, take it up with the bar fucked. You should consider taking that part down.
But look, I also want to be a part of this suit. Here’s a little number I have been quietly sitting on for quite a while. But, since you open the door, let me throw it out there.
I HAVE BEEN TOLD BY FORMER AND CURRENT IVAW MEMBER(S) THAT THE CALLED KOKESH “COKEHEAD” ON ACCOUNT OF THE PARTIES HE THREW AT THE HOUSE.
There, please add my name to the list. Have your lawyer contact the blog here at admin(at)thisainthell(dot)us and I will be happy to furnish my name and address. Mind you, your lawyer will likely be bright enough to tell you that what I did there was pass along information given to me, and that in order to prevail you would have to show that no one told me that, which they have. But, I say screw it, bring on the discovery phase I say.
Also, I would like to add Steve that you seem more in need of a constitutional refresher course than any man I’ve ever seen. Also, kindly go F yourself.
Your pal, TSO.
Term invented in Soviet Russia to describe people who blindly supported the likes of Lenin and Stalin while they committed atrocity after atrocity.
Today, it refers to brainwashed liberals and leftists the world over (usually college students that aren’t necessarily idiots, but just misinformed, naive, and ignorant of facts due to being indoctrinated with liberal/socialist propaganda through their public education) who believe that George W. Bush has committed more crimes against humanity than leftist darlings like Saddam Hussain, Yasser Arafat, and Osama Bin Laden, and still defend Communism, the cause of over 100 million deaths to this day.

Hundreds of useful idiots gathered at their college campus to burn American flags, pass out Communist pamphlets that apologize for Stalin and Mao, and to pledge support to their hero, Saddam Hussain.
Useful idiots need to be shown the facts, mainly that the United States and Israel are the greatest defenders of freedom and justice in the world. Until then, rational people can have fun laughing at their ignorance.
Can these terms now be used to describe people whose patriotism is being used to further the agenda of groups detrimental to the well being of the United States by the anti-war movements of the fringe Ron Paul organizations. masking themselves with the terms of Liberty, Freedom, Protecting the Constitution and Honoring Your Oath. The Deceivers among us who walk, talk and go virtually undetected until now. It breaks ones heart to see true Patriots deceived by these traitors. The Vail of their secrecy and deception is now being lifted.

In the last month, I have been involved in the gathering of information on two candidates from the Campaign for Liberty, a Ron Paul organization. Specifically, the two candidates are Adam Kokesh and Peter Schiff.
I did so because of the treason of Adam Kokesh and because Peter Schiff is from my home state of Connecticut. I found several events where Schiff and Kokesh attended exclusively for fundraising and also saw how only THREE main candidates were being promoted: RAND PAUL, PETER SCHIFF, and ADAM KOKESH.
It is sad to announce that these three are also the dArlings of the Internet scourge of racists, known as STORMFRONT.
Read it for yourself, folks, all three of these candidates are the type of people that this organization supports and even wants to send money to!
The RAND Paul Money Bomb! Help Elect Rand Paul to U.S.
Folks: YOU ARE KNOWN BY the company you keep!!!
We kinda need to stay focused here Kokesh is a traitor, who cares about internet celebrity
Kokesh is unelectable, anti-military, “Internet celebrity,” Mullins says By Matthew Reichbach 3/12/10 11:15 AM In an interview with the conservative blog Hot Air, Republican candidate Tom Mullins attacked his opponent in the Republican primary, Adam Kokesh, saying, “Adam is nothing more than an Internet celebrity and a war protester. I don’t believe New Mexicans agree with his views or his methods to share or voice them.” The interviewer herself was not not a fan of Kokesh, having previously written an article about Kokesh being a traitor in GOP clothing. Kokesh is an Iraq War veteran who now opposes the war. The interview, in the Green Room section of Hot Air, touched on what they consider Kokesh’s “anti-military activities. “I don’t understand how Adam’s actions are ‘Constitutional,’” Mullins said, referring to his protests against and statements about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. ” “He’s a great public speaker, I’ll give you that,” Mullins said later in the interview, “So if you’re looking for an unqualified guy who looks pretty and can speak well, then Adam’s your guy.” In the interview, Mullins said that the decision for Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell should be left to “the commanders and leaders of our men and women in combat” and that he opposes gay marriage. Mullins also said he would vote against health care (in fact, he has signed on to a pledge to repeal health care reform) and opposes the stimulus package. Kokesh is in the libertarian wing of the Republican Party, one dominated in recent years by Ron Paul. The primary in the 3rd Congressional District between Kokesh and Mullins could be one test of the direction of the Republican Party in the state.
Just days before New Mexico House Speaker Ben Lujan launched the 2010 legislative session, Adam Kokesh, a Republican primary candidate in the 3rd Congressional District, accused the powerful speaker of helping put his son Ben Ray Lujan in Congress through his “ability to make bribes and promises from the statehouse.” But the SEC has charged Kokesh’s own father for allegedly misappropriating $45 million from investors in four businesses.
“Most people here believe that he only got elected because of his father,” Kokesh said, referring to Congressman Lujan, after an Albuquerque Tea Party event held Saturday in Rio Rancho.
“Lujan Sr., who has been responsible for a lot of the corruption at the state level … is responsible for his son currently holding that seat and the money that he was able to raise,” Kokesh told The Independent.
Kokesh did not offer any specific details or proof of wrongdoing by Speaker Lujan. On Wednesday he explained, “I hear stories repeatedly of the effects of this corruption on the state, and on politics here, from people who will tell me in confidence, but are afraid to say anything on the record because of the fear of retaliation.”
At the Tea Party event he called the electoral success of the Democrat family the “Lujan machine,” adding: “this machine…it’s out of gas.”
Lujan spokesman Mark Nicastre called Kokesh’s statements a “malicious, unprovoked attack” on Lujan’s father, saying the comments were “inappropriate and disappointing.”
“Largely the power base is not from the power of their [Lujans’] ideas or their conviction or their honesty. It’s from the ability to make bribes and promises from the statehouse,” Kokesh said, claiming that it will be difficult for the elder Lujan to help his son further–because of the state’s budget shortfall.
“The state is all out of money and the Lujans are all out of promises to offer,” Kokesh said. “They can’t keep this thing going,” Kokesh said.
Kokesh, who has been defending criticism of his war protests, mostly by his Republican primary opponent Tom Mullins, predicts the legislative session is “going to be ugly, and finally the bill is coming due for all of the largesse at the state level and all of the corruption.”
“You can’t just buy off the voters in New Mexico,” Kokesh said.
Several calls to Speaker Lujan were not returned.
“The fact is that Rep. [Ben Ray] Lujan has a strong record of standing up for the people of New Mexico–taking on insurance companies, credit card companies and Wall Street. It’s a record he’s proud of and a record that respects and represents the values of the district,” Nicaster wrote in an e-mail to The Independent.
“It’s a shame that some are resorting to vitriol, but Rep. Lujan remains focused on fighting for the people of New Mexico’s 3rd Congressional District.”
Kokesh’s father investigated by SEC
In October 2008, Adam Kokesh’s father, Charles Kokesh, was charged by the Securities and Exchange Commission with misappropriating $45 million dollars from 21,000 investors in four business development companies (BDCs) through “a variety of schemes and contrivances.”
The SEC complaint alleged that the elder Kokesh controlled two now-defunct investment advisory firms from 1995 through July 2007, which in turn controlled and provided investment advice to his BDC’s. (BDCs are similar to venture capital funds that allow investors to invest in startups and other companies.) The complaint alleges that:
Acting by and through the Advisers, Kokesh misappropriated approximately $45 million of investor funds by causing the BDCs to pay illegal distributions, performance fees, and expense reimbursements to the Advisers. To conceal the scheme, Kokesh caused the Advisers to distribute misleading proxy statements to BDC investors and to file false Commission reports on behalf of the BDCs.
Kokesh’s father has also faced legal problems in Santa Fe. In July 2009, The Santa Fe New Mexican reported on Charles Kokesh’s legal woes, including an attempt by the City of Santa Fe to collect over $100,000 in irrigation fees. From the story:
So far this year, two foreclosure lawsuits have been filed on the senior Kokesh’s horse park and private residence, another lender has tried to repossess his motor home, and a credit card company is demanding payments from his wife.
But Kokesh maintains some of those cases are in error, that he is doing well financially after selling his South Dakota arms-manufacturing firm, and looks forward to settling all claims against him.
In a telephone interview Friday, Kokesh said he believes previous stories about his financial troubles are part of a “vendetta” against him by a New Mexican reporter.
“You like to emphasize the negative?” he asked. “You could put a much more positive spin on it: Local venture capitalist succeeds in selling one of the remaining portfolio companies, is flush with cash, does not see a problem working through any of the issues.”
Reached via phone from Gallup Wednesday afternoon, Adam Kokesh distanced himself from his father’s troubles.
“My father’s issues are his own,” he told The Independent. “My father has never taken any money from the government, and he is not an elected official who’s been on the ballot before which helps with name recognition.”
“I understand the circumstances of the case with my father,” Kokesh said. “I hope that this new prosecution is not politically motivated because of my race [for Congress]. But, what ever happens I hope that justice will be done.”
That’s how the Democratic Party Of New Mexico has responded to GOP congressional hopeful Adam Kokesh’s comments about U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Lujan and his father Ben Lujan, the speaker of the New Mexico state House.
On Wednesday, The New Mexico Independent reported that Kokesh had accused the speaker of corruption and bribery–without offering any specific proof of those charges.
“The people of the New Mexico’s Third Congressional District elected Congressman Ben Ray Lujan because they knew he would stand up for them – by taking on insurance companies, credit card companies and Wall Street banks,” Democratic Party Executive Director Scott Forrester said in a statement e-mailed to The Independent.
“Speaker Ben Lujan has spent his life working as a strong public servant for New Mexico families – while laboring to ensure all New Mexicans have access to a excellent education, a good job and a better way of life,” Forrester wrote. “Unfortunately, Adam Kokesh is The Kokesh family has been surrounded by controversy, raising questions of fraud and abuse. Mr. Kokesh’s father was recently indicted for defrauding people out of their savings, and several legal suits have been brought upon the family by organizations representing those victims attempting to recover their hard earned money.
“While Congressman Lujan and Speaker Lujan have spent their lives working to improve the lives of New Mexicans families – and ensure that criminals such as Bernie Madoff are put behind bars – the Kokesh family has allegedly been working hard to do just the opposite. Who is Adam Kokesh to lecture ANYONE on corruption?” Forrester asked.
