Met with Brandon tonight at the John Randolph Hopewell VA~Psychiatric Ward.
He has not been drugged for those of you asking. They are holding him until Monday when he is to appear before a Judge whom will make a ruling based on the Dr’s (Of their choosing) evaluation of his ability to function in society. Should the Judge deem him a terrorist threat and unstable he will continue to be detained for a greater length of time of which is undetermined.
I am looking into him being evaluated by an outside Dr. of our choosing. I was told that this was not possible. We are seeking legal counsel on this. We do not trust their choice of Dr.’s He is being held for 72 hours until Monday’s hearing.
He has NOT been accused or booked for any crime. Yet, he was handcuffed, not read his rights and taken away in a police car to be placed into a Psychiatric hospital. Oh yeah, he is an AMERICAN CITIZEN.
What some do not seem to understand or “get” is this, it is not about what someone says or how they said it, or even if I agree with it. This is about the government, OUR government telling us that if you take a stand and speak out against them you can be “taken away”. This is a direct violation of our Constitutional Rights aka “Freedom of Speech”. READ IT, it is clear.
They will not stop here, they are coming after your guns, hard and fast. They will attempt to disarm you.
“A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.” — George Washington
We are seeking legal counsel, more importantly the MOST HIGH counsel.
For all of those who have reached out, to all of those that have called, or posted, or agreed to stand with us in prayer and love we appreciate you and we ask this only…
Read the Constitution, and Bill of Rights. Then look around and ask yourself if you see our government following it. Question Everything your government does. If you find an area (there are many) where they are falling short or even completely abolishing sections of it along with our rights then please, do something about it.
I cannot tell you what that is, but I can guide you if you are willing to listen. This has been the sole aim for sharing with you this past year since I came out of “the matrix” and my eyes and hearts were opened. This has been the reason behind my conversations with many of you and your reaction has spoke volumes to me.
Many of my friends and family have distanced themselves from me, you know who you are. I make you uncomfortable and who likes that right? I am a Conspiracy Theorist and “why the heck can’t you just “settle down”. I see it in your eyes and in your inaction to a government gone rogue.
Many of you have now become my friends, my comrades, my colleges and I hold you dear. Not because you have agreed with me all the time, for who grows that way? But for your hearts that love this country, love liberty more than anything and love God. You amaze me, you astound me with your fierce loyalty to our founding father’s words and works and you inspire me!
You, must choose your own path and thus your destiny. Just remember, this is more important than you, this is our future children’s legacy. What you choose to do today will become their tomorrow. Choose wisely!
