Hands Off Jihadists, Arrest Patriots

American Thinker

The  FBI has a double standard when it targets people suspected as threats to our  national security.  How could they have questioned the now deceased Boston  bomber, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, placed him on a terrorist watch list, and entered him  into a database  for suspected international terrorists, but let him roam free until he blew  somebody up?


How  could the FBI have allowed Major Nidal Hasan, who ended up murdering 13 people  in Ft. Hood, Texas, to keep his rank and continue to teach even when they had  evidence that he was in contact with a known terrorist?  And how could they  have cuffed and thrown into jail with lightning speed a patriot like ex-Marine  Brandon Raub of Chesterfield, Virginia, whose only apparent violation was  political incorrectness through his right to free speech?


Why  does America’s justice system treat alleged radical criminals with kid gloves  while patriots are guilty until proven innocent?

When  two FBI agents showed up on ex-Marine  Brandon Raub’s front porch last year to interview him, all they had was a Facebook page of rap song lyrics, political opinions on government cabals, talk  of a an impending revolution, and what they said were “complaints” about his  “threatening posts.”  No jihad videos, no long list of warnings from  co-workers, no threats to ‘kill Americans,” no domestic violence charges, no  trips to Russia, no connections to Islamic fundamentalists, and no mention of  “Allahu Akbar.”


According  to one source, the posts were made on a closed Facebook page Raub had created only days before.  In other words, the feds tracked him  down pretty quickly and wasted no time taking a man who had served two tours of  duty in Afghanistan and Iraq into custody.


Raub’s  civil rights and liberties as a U.S. citizen went out the window.  FBI and  Secret Service officials talked with Raub for a while until the local police  moved in, handcuffed him, and took him to jail.  No warrant was served when  Raub was first taken into custody, no charges were filed, and he was not read  his rights.


John  Whitehead, a constitutional lawyer from The Rutherford Institute, forwarded this  timeline.


August  16, 2012:  federal and state officers came to Raub’s home to question him  and after about 15 minutes handcuffed him, took him into custody and transported  him to jail.

August  17:  shortly after midnight, a magistrate issued a Temporary Detention  Order allowing for the commitment of Raub on the basis of mental illness and  dangerousness.  Raub was transported to John Randolph Medical Center, where  he was held against his will.

August  20:  the state filed a petition for involuntary admission  for treatment asserting Raub was mentally ill and dangerous.  The petition  was granted and Raub was transported to the Salem (VA) Veterans Administration  Medical Center and held there.

August  22:  TRI (The Rutherford Institute)  legal counsel for Raub filed  an appeal from the order granting the petition for involuntary admission and  treatment.

August  23:  Raub’s TRI legal counsel was heard on the challenge to the order  and the circuit court ruled that the August 20 petition was “so devoid of  factual allegations that it could not reasonably be expected to give rise to a  case or controversy,” dismissed the August 20 Petition and ordered Raub’s  immediate release.

Raub  had committed no crime but was literally pulled from his home and hauled off to  jail without any due process.  The FBI treated him as a terror threat and  put him away within 15 minutes.

In  contrast to the FBI’s vigilance when it came to targeting an innocent American  veteran, the feds allowed the Ft. Hood shooter, Major Nidal Hasan, and the  Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev to carry on with their jihadist plots against  Americans despite a mountain of red flags.


In Hasan’s  case, the jihadist had expressed his support for suicide bombings and  killing civilians in a series of 2008 e-mails obtained by two FBI  anti-terrorism units.  The FBI never questioned Hasan and never temporarily  detained him.


The  FBI did manage to interview Tamerlan  Tsarnaev two years ago, but they failed to find any incriminating  information about him.  CBS reported that the FBI “initially denied  contacting Tsarnaev but Tsarnaev’s mother said they had in an interview with Russia Today. She insisted the FBI ‘knew what he was doing  on Skype’ and that they counseled him ‘every step of the  way.'”


How  did the FBI miss the now deceased Tamerlan’s violent Islamic extremist YouTube  videos, which began in 2010, while at the same time, they were able to hone in  on Raub’s Facebook page and then interrogate, arrest, and detain him within a  relatively short period of time with no justification?


Hunting  down a non-Muslim, innocent, white American veteran, and sending him far away  from his family, friends, and attorneys — all the while apologizing, bowing  down, and excusing our country as a hotbed of Islamophobia has become a hallmark  of this administration…and, by extension, the Federal Bureau of  Investigation.

  1. Our Country has been hi-jacked!

  2. The obamanation sucks assholes just like obama does! You know I find it difficult to understand how the Secret Service agents can carry out their protection of him in the light of his criminal activities! If obama ever is convicted and removed for criminal acts I personally will push my Senators to try and perhaps have them put in jail for complicity and accomplises just as Hitlers SS were sentenced to death for their actions while he committed crimes of war! So what is the difference here none if we ever pin that sorry Son of a Bitch!

  3. And these same Patriots continue to protect him and other politicans. Treason, tyranny…………there just isn’t enough words.
