The Disappearance Of Brandon Raub

The Disappearance Of Brandon Raub

The state tried to make former Marine Brandon Raub “disappear.”

After being handcuffed and carted away from his Virginia home by the FBI, Secret Service and Chesterfield Police Department on Aug. 16, Raub was confined in the John Randolph Psychiatric Medical Hospital where he was given a mental evaluation. On Aug. 20, he was sentenced to up to 30 more days further confinement and ordered by a special judge to a Veteran’s Hospital more than three hours from his home — far away from his family and his legal team — even though a similar facility is about eight miles from his home.

The FBI, Secret Service and police admit Raub has committed no crime. They simply didn’t like his Facebook posts calling 9/11 an inside job, accusing the Bush family of crimes and warning of a coming revolution.

Raub thought he was protecting America’s freedoms when served his two tours of duty in the Mideast. He’s learning that America is no longer the land of the free and the elites have no patience for dissent.

Speech is supposed to be protected — especially speech that makes people uncomfortable. But that is no longer the case in America.

A judge ordered Raub released yesterday, a week after he was dragged from his home. The petition filed by his persecutors was blank and didn’t list a single allegation against him. The judge said Raub suffered a “deprivation of his liberty” by being held without a clear claim.

Free speech received a temporary reprieve. Raub lost seven days of his life.
