US Veterans Forcibly Sequestered in Mental Hospitals is Indefinite Detention

US Veterans Forcibly Sequestered in Mental Hospitals is Indefinite Detention

After Special Justice Walter Douglas Stokes sentenced former US Marine Brandon Raub to 30 days detention in the psychiatric ward of the Veterans Hospital, Circuit Court Judge Allan Sharrett dismissed the case citing that the original petition was “devoid of any factual allegations that it could not be reasonably expected to give rise to a case or controversy.”

John Whitehead, attorney for the Rutherford Institute and Raub has stated that since the former Marine’s detention case, he has received numerous stated from other veterans who are being discriminated against. The latest trend is to have our former US service men and women declared mentally ill and detained against their will.

Just as Raub was forcibly detained in a mental ward, another veteran has been taken without charge or criminal activity. His firearms were confiscated and he was given a court date.

In a study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, collaborating with the VA Medical Center, an estimated 1/3rd of veterans returning from Afghanistan and Iraq were determined to be mentally or psychologically ill.

Touting post-traumatic stress disorder (PSTD), more than half of returning veterans are considered suffering from a war-related mental disorder.

The authors of the study explain: “Our results signal a need for improvements in the primary prevention of military service-related mental health disorders, particularly among our youngest service members . . . because they are young, they are more likely to be of lower rank and more likely to have greater combat exposure than their older active-duty counterparts.”

However, the authors do admit that “our results may overestimate the burden of mental health disorders because veterans with mental health disorders may be more likely to seek treatment at a VA facility than those without.”

Most recently is the inception of oppositional defiance disorder (ODD) which is described as a mental disease wherein free thinkers, non-conformists, civil disobedience supporters, those who question authority and are perceived as being hostile toward the government are labeled mentally ill.

Psychiatrics claim that sufferers have “a recurrent pattern of negativistic, defiant, disobedient, and hostile behavior toward authority figures that persists for at least 6 months” which includes:

• Persistent stubbornness
• Resistance to directions
• Unwillingness to go along with the crowd
• Deliberately annoying others
• Testing limits by ignoring orders
(Sounds like they're talkin' about me!)

The RAND Corporation asserts that the cost of caring for mentally ill veterans was more than $12 billion in 2007. Katherine Watkins, senior natural scientist for RAND said: “With some changes, the VA could provide even better and more cost-effective care for the nation’s veterans, as well as serve as a model for other health care systems.”

The RAND Corporation paints US veterans as dangerous because of the degree to which they are mentally affected by their service exposure to war and war-like conditions. The globalist think-tank says veterans are suffering from “schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder, major depression, and substance use disorders.”

Doctors have classified Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) as an incurable brain disease that soldiers returning from war suffer from. After having injured the brain during battle, soldiers are being touted as displaying large bursts of anger and depression while having their vital motor skills and memory impacted.

Symptoms of CTE are recognized as memory loss, confusion, impaired judgment, impulse control problems, aggression, depression, and, eventually, progressive dementia.

US veterans, being diagnosed with traumatic brain injury (TBI) are being tracked by the Department of Defense (DoD) because they may display personality changes that could come on without warning and effect their ability to acclimate back into American society.

Researchers are claiming that even mild TBI can develop into CTE, which will cause veterans to possibly become a danger to themselves and those around them.

In 2009, the Office of Intelligence and Analysis published a report entitled Rightwing Extremism, wherein domestic extremists were proposed to be the newest and most dangerous threat to the US since al-Qaeda.

While admitting that they did not have definitive proof that “domestic rightwing terrorists are currently planning acts of violence, [however] rightwing extremists may be gaining new recruits by playing on their fears about several emergent issues. The economic downturn and the election of the first African American president present unique drivers for rightwing radicalization and recruitment.”

The DHS wanted to instill the idea that veterans were being recruited to become “right-wing extremists” upon returned from Iraq and Afghanistan. Janet Napolitano intimated that military veterans could become instruments of domestic terror. When Napolitano’s comments were met with public distain, the DHS amended their assertion that extremist groups were highly-marked; but rather it was a lone wolf type that would carry out the biggest act of domestic terrorism.

Mainstream media has spun the propaganda perfectly by asserting that “the return of military veterans facing significant challenges reintegrating into their communities could lead to the potential emergence of terrorist groups or lone wolf extremists capable of carrying out violent attacks.”

A plan is unfolding that connects US veterans to the probability of committing horrendous acts of violence. The MSM provides the social dialogue while various federal agencies in collaboration with the US Army are using a medical condition to justify the coming accusations. We have seen this before.

When the US government rolls out marital law, the biggest threat to their total lockdown of America will be the US veteran. Former active duty soldiers are trained in tactical procedures and pose a real risk because they can easily combat the US military that will show up in every city across the entire nation.

In May of this year, Federal Court Judge Katherine Forrest ordered that the US military could not arbitrarily imprison Americans based on alleged terrorist activity in regard to the indefinite detention clause in the NDAA. Although Obama’s lawyers appealed the ruling, the decision still stands.

However, committing an individual to a mental hospital is not illegal. This may be why we are seeing our US veterans being targeted, called mentally ill, and forcibly removed from their homes. Coinciding with the growing number of mentally ill US veterans we are seeing the removal of their firearms and right to even own firearms. This is another scheme the Obama administration is implementing to set the stage for their complete takeover of America after marital law is declared.

"1/3rd of veterans returning from Afghanistan and Iraq were determined to be mentally or psychologically ill."

figure out of the number of troops sent there.. i've never seen totals, but we know the troop strength was always over 100K..least close to it.. and even with multi tours no way this longest of all wars is NOT going to have over 200K total troops involved one time or another.. telling me that a third of them are mentally or psychologically ill.. Don't buy it..

I will say, and have said that the PTSD were dealing with HAS to be highest ever as were talking just about everyone is in danger, not the usual 10% front line thing.. but even if highest ever one third is off the chart.. lest i hope so for all..

were talking about how much abuse of exec power he's responsible for, and INSTEAD of going to the middle as Clinton did, he's gone ever further to the left.. He made a statement that he was looking for a way "around" congress this fall to get his budget passed.. THAT is scary, and i really believe if he has another term this country will be his and the Dems to alter as they see fit.

Last night i listened to a program about this very issue, and the fact is were only a "tecnocality" away from marshall law.. executive orders have already been signed that allows for gov oversight of civilian populace that has never existed before.. I'm sigting a program on late night radio, and yeah i know the veracity of that sorta thing is out there..but the guy making the charge is on a best seller list, so i think this ones straight up..

accusing American military veterans of being crazy and the gov should take their guns away.
WW1, WW2 and Korean War, no significant problem with "crazy vets". VN war, communists inside the U.S. make everything military bad, you remember the "Drug Crazed Vietnam Vets"? This is, in my opinion, a carry over of that. The gov telling us we should be afraid of our veterans and they should be watched closely, they should not be allowed to have guns.
I'm skeptical of the NUMBER of PTSD cases, the gov went looking for "crazy vets" and by making a big deal out of PTSD they were able to get them by the droves, take their guns away. It's like the West Nile Virus scare in Oklahoma, it gets hyped in the news and suddenly there are thousands of "victims" who ultimately do not have the disease but a few really do.

Bret Baier this afternoon, 5 local time.
"Special Report" is just about all the news I watch and don't watch it often. Baier runs a good show skimming over all the current news then having the 3-4 people on to discus news stuff. Good thing, Baier controls the mouths on his show, no time wasted with people talking over each other. I flat out DO NOT watch ANY show that allows that. Has a lot to do with being profoundly deaf, not being able to pick out one conversation from another when they are being rude like that.

What's new out your way? Got any leads on low pressure .45ACP yet? I'm looking fwd to a range report on your Webley.

I got lucky on Ebay today. I've been watching for a .380 Lee Loader set. The ones I've seen auctioned off went for over $45. I found one just minutes after it was listed and had a "buy it now" option for $25. I was all over it like stink on a democrat. Closed the deal after it had been listed for only about 25 minutes.
Have you considered buying one for .45? Easy to use, don't take up space.
