A former Marine whose controversial Facebook posts accused the US government of being behind the 9/11 terror attacks and who spoke of "revolution" has been arrested in Virginia.
Business Insider reports that agents from the FBI, Secret Service and Chesterfield County Police detained 26-year-old Brandon Raub without charges on Friday night after questioning him at his home about his Facebook posts.
WTVR reports that Raub is being held for medical evaluation at John Randolph Psychiatric Hospital in Hopewell.
Raub, a former Marine who served in both Iraq and Afghanistan, is an outspoken 9/11 "Truther" who believes the US government is responsible for the terror attacks on New York and Washington that killed nearly 3,000 people.
On August 14, Raub posted a photo of the severely-damaged Pentagon in the wake of the 9/11 attack with the caption "This is a photo of the Pentagon, right after our leaders shot a missile into it."
Raub also spoke about an imminent revolution against the US government.
"There has been an overwhelming amount of evil enacted and planned against you, your children and your countrymen," he wrote on August 12. "It is great in scope. Your government is evil. It is as simple as that. And the cavalry is coming."
"The Revolution will come for me," he wrote on August 16. "Men will be at my door soon to pick me up to lead it."
It is unclear why Raub was detained and taken to a psychiatric facility. His mother said that an FBI agent told her that he was "arrested by the Chesterfield Police Department" because he "assaulted an officer and resisted arrest" and that we was making threats that were "terrorist in nature." But the Chesterfield Police said he was not charged with assaulting an officer or resisting arrest and that Raub’s detention "was an FBI matter and we were just there to assist them."
Neither the FBI nor the Secret Service have charged Raub with any crime, spokespeople from both agencies told WTVR.
It is unclear what, if any, "terroristic threats" the government claimed Raub made, but under a provision of this year’s National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), American citizens suspected of being terrorists face indefinite military detention without charge or trial. The NDAA, passed by Congress on Bill of Rights Day, was signed into law "with reservations" and a promise never to indefinitely detain US citizens by President Barack Obama away from the eyes of the corporate mainstream media on New Year’s Eve.
The Aeon of Horus is Ending and the Elites are Nervous as their Icons are Dying 2014 04 18
I predict there is going to be a huge resurgence of interest in European indigenous spiritual traditions from Norse to Celtic/Gaelic to Slavic and so on. Millions of Europeans are going to realise that we are the victims of Christianity and New Age garbage. Their bastardised Kabbalah, the psychic force used by Crowley and the elites to cement his Aeon ...
Easter - Christian or Pagan? 2014 04 18
Contrary to popular belief, Easter does not represent the "historical" crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ. In reality, the gospel tale reflects the annual "crossification" of the sun through the vernal equinox (Spring), at which time the sun is "resurrected," as the day begins to become longer than the night.
Rather than being a "Christian" holiday, Easter celebrations date back ...

The Trials of the Cherokee Were Reflected In Their Skulls 2014 04 18
Researchers from North Carolina State University and the University of Tennessee have found that environmental stressors – from the Trail of Tears to the Civil War – led to significant changes in the shape of skulls in the eastern and western bands of the Cherokee people.
The findings highlight the role of environmental factors in shaping our physical characteristics.
Our Fears May Be Shaped by Ancestral Trauma 2014 04 18
Last December, an unsettling Nature Neuroscience study found that mice who were taught to associate the smell of cherry blossoms with pain produced offspring who feared the smell of cherry blossoms, even if they had never been exposed to it before. We knew that the process was epigenetic—that it was not hard-wired in the permanent genetic structure of the mouse—but ...
