I don’t know him personally, but I can give you some knowledge that I have gleaned from researching & reading everything that I have since his detainment began.
Brandon signed up for The Marine Corps because of his strong beliefs in God & Country. He served a tour in Iraq, & returned back home, where he was serving in The Marine Corps Reserves. When he heard that they needed more boots on the ground in Afghanistan, he volunteered to go to Afghanistan to aid his fellow Marines.
While he was serving in Afghanistan, he had downtime between missions/duties, as many of us veterans know that you will have. Brandon used this time to start reading & researching about our country & some of its policies & institutions, such as The Federal Reserve.
Now, I will say that in my case, when I started researching foreign & domestic policy here in America, I held the belief that America was the country that we were raised to believe it was, that we stood for freedom, equality, personal rights & liberty, & doing the greatest amount of good for the greatest amount of people that we could. What I found in my research was a very different truth.
I firmly believe that Brandon realized & came to the same conclusions that I did, that our government was not acting in a manner consistent with the principles that America was founded upon, & that we were all raised to believe in. He found out that The Federal Reserve is a privately owned bank that ‘prints’ our currency in exchange for Treasury bonds, & thereby, is essentially charging us interest on our own currency, & that furthermore, the reason why they do this is to control our government through the means of debt. If you need some verification of this, here are a few quotes from men that are much more learned in such affairs –
Amschel Rothschild(member of one of the founding families of The Federal Reserve): ‘Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes the laws.’
Andrew Jackson: ‘The bold efforts the present (central) bank had made to control the government … are but premonitions of the fate that await the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it.’
Andrew Jackson: ‘It is maintained by some that the bank is a means of executing the Constitutional power “to coin money and regulate the value thereof.” Congress have established a mint to coin money and passed laws to regulate the value thereof. The money so coined, with its value so regulated, and such foreign coins as Congress may adopt are the only currency known to the Constitution. But if they have other power to regulate the currency, it was conferred to be exercised by themselves, and not to be transferred to a corporation. If the bank be established for that purpose, with a charter unalterable without its consent, Congress have parted with their power for a term of years, during which the Constitution is a dead letter. It is neither necessary nor proper to transfer its legislative power to such a bank, and therefore unconstitutional.’
Woodrow Wilson, after his presidency, during which he signed The Federal Reserve Act into law: ‘I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.’
These men knew that if a central bank is established in any country, that said country is no longer run by the consent of the governed, as Our Constitution was meant to establish our government, but by the central bankers of international origins, & therefore with no allegiance, or concern for the people of said country. Most particularly, as President Jackson attested & affirmed, that means that The Constitution is being subverted by this privately owned institution.
I’m sure that there were many areas of research that Brandon explored that concerned him as well, as there have been many laws, acts, & bills passed that have further undermined Our Constitution, but it seems from his writings that The Federal Reserve was his primary concern.
Were Brandon’s words strong? Yes, but his convictions are even stronger. More inflammatory & threatening language was used by our founding fathers, & that is exactly the kind of speech that the 1st Amendment was meant to protect. That is why it is in the First Amendment, because it was so vitally important in their esteemed estimation.
Brandon is someone who loves America(or the ideal of America that we were all indoctrinated to believe existed) & his fellow Americans enough to serve his country, under what I believe he found to be false pretenses, & enough to not allow a fear of reprisal silence his deep regret over the shattering of the ideals of America, & the disregard for our founding document, The Constitution of The United States of America.
Brandon is not only sane & rational, he is actually a researched & versed patriot, & a believer in truth, justice, & liberty. He is a man of principle, unquestionable character, & boundless integrity, & he is a hero & a role model for us all to follow. He loves his family, God, his country, & holds a stalwart belief that we can be better, we can do better, & that we can live in love & liberty if we can remove the corrosive & corrupted elements of our government, & return to Constitutional principles.
He sacrificed his freedom to ensure that we all kept ours, & I would simply like to say that were I ever to meet him, I would be deeply honored, privileged, & blessed to be joined in fellowship with such a selfless & respectable individual.
Please stand with Brandon, as he is literally standing up for all of us right now. FREE BRANDON RAUB!!!
