Title: Today Adam Kokesh Filed Papers Seeking the Libertarian Presidential Nomination. Then He Was Arrested on Drug Charges.

Adam Kokesh, longtime anarcho-libertarian activist who first came to public prominence with Iraq Veterans Against the War in 2007 and was later a big Ron Paul supporter, today filed the paperwork necessary to officially seek the U.S. presidency. He is hoping for the Libertarian Party's presidential nomination.

He also had his RV pulled over twice by Texas police, and was arrested the second time.

A video of the second pullover that led to the arrest can be found on Facebook (and is embedded below). It shows highway patrol officers instructing Kokesh to shut off his camera at the point a police dog, off-camera, was said to have "alerted" to the RV. Kokesh was pulled over for driving 74 in a 65 zone, according to one officer in the video.

According to the Texas ACLU, the police do not have the right to demand a citizen stop videotaping willy-nilly though they have the loophole I'm sure they'd summon here regarding "truly interfering with legitimate law enforcement operations." The ACLU notes that "Professional officers, however, realize that such operations are subject to public scrutiny, including by citizens photographing them."

Jacob Sullum at Reason in a classic 2013 cover story demolished the probity of the "dog alert=suspension of Fourth Amendment rights" line of thought and practice.

A spokeswoman for the Wise County Jail confirms Kokesh is in their custody on four charges, one related to possession of under two ounces of marijuana, two related to possession of another controlled substance she was not able to specify, and one for "tampering and/or fabricating evidence with intent to impair" a police investigation. He will likely be arraigned and have bond set tomorrow.

Ben Farmer, the Kokesh campaign's chief strategist, says in an email that "we don't know any more than you do at this time about the charges or the circumstances of his arrest. We do find it suspicious that Adam was pulled over twice within an hour of formally announcing his candidacy for President. Particularly, since he just came off of a 4 month, cross-country tour in the same vehicle without being pulled over once the entire time."

I reported on one of Kokesh's previous brushes with the law, based on videotaping himself with legally forbidden weapons on federal property, back in 2014. He got off with two years probation then.

Busted for being a Libertarian presidential candidate?

The officers know that their days of sucking off of the government teat via Fusion Center federal funding, are over if Adam Kokesh becomes president.

A pretty easy bust, comparable to the cops arresting Willie Nelson for pot at any point in the last 40 years.

I did a protection detail on that greasy haired hippie shit kicker. It was for a live concert in my jurisdictional area, prior to retiring about 19 years ago. That pothead wouldn't allow LE, anywhere near him.

He didn't get a lot of protection. lol

You should've brought a drug dog and busted that old fruitbat.

Willie has received his share of presidential votes as an indy over the years, he's got a lot of grassroots support.

What a proud moment of racial harmony. I especially like how the she-cop was charged with resisting arrest. Ya think that might hurt her future promotions?

All that remains is her reinstatement with back pay and winning a lawsuit against the racist oppressors who arrested her.

Side by side with our President, the FLOTUS made sure it was known she was there to help not just with words, but with actions.

The Trumpkins fear losing to the Kokesh Libertarians of Texas in the 2020 election!

Unfortunately, the camera was turned off before we could see Melania hog-tie the Libertarian presidential candidate.

Hopefully, they terminate that embarrassment of an officer. You can take the officer out of Somali... but you'll never take the Somali out of the officer.
