A Psychiatric Commitment Order Too Far

A judge has ordered the release of that Marine vet who was hauled off in handcuffs by agents of multiple federal agencies and local law enforcement officers and locked away in a psychiatric facility for having expressed views that the powers that be deemed objectionable. The judge ruled that the order under which Brandon Raub was forcibly whisked off to the mental health lockup was invalid, according to this report.

That, however, doesn't mean that our ruling elites will abandon efforts to use psychiatry as did the rulers of Nazi Germany and the communist U.S.S.R. to suppress free speech, dissent, and opposition, as is indicated by this breaking story and spelled out in this analysis.  Veterans apparently are being especially targeted because of their capabilities to resist the imposition of martial law by the nation's ruling elite, which aspires to being able to impose its will on the rest of us by merely issuing decrees.

Furthermore, it's not just speech that our rulers want to curb. The action against Raub may have been part of a broader effort to strip military veterans concerned about the erosion of our freedoms of their Second Amendment guaranteed right to keep and bear arms, as is suggested by this essay.
