CPT Bailey on Liddy Show

| March 10, 2010

Navy Captain Larry Baily, a Navy SEAL who spends a lot of his personal time and assets busting phony SEALs, will be on the G. Gordon Liddy radio show today. You can listen to it on the interwebbythingies. Apparently, Captain Bailey will be discussing Adam Kokesh’s candidacy run in New Mexico.

The one time I’ve talked with Captain Baily on the phone, he had just finished telling a widow that her recently deceased husband wasn’t eligible for burial in Arlington despite the years of lies her husband had told her. He’s a straight shooter and a rock hard patriot.

Below the jump is an open letter Captain Bailey sent out to New Mexico voters;

Adam Kokesh: A Dishonored Marine
A Vietnam Veteran Speaks Out

Adam Kokesh, candidate for the Republican nomination for the US House of Representatives from the Third District of New Mexico, is doing his best to deceive the electorate. He portrays himself as a libertarian conservative, but he is neither libertarian nor conservative (unless he reinvents himself again). Most egregiously, he is attempting to portray himself as a patriotic anti-war/anti-military veteran in a manner reminiscent of John Kerry and Vietnam Veterans against the War (VVAW), in which Kerry tarnished the valor of his brothers-in-arms in order to advance his political career.

As did VVAW, Kokesh’s Iraq Veterans against the War (IVAW) holds that America is an imperialistic country, that the military is merely a tool of the government, and that our soldiers are little more than marauders and murderers who, in the words of John Kerry, behave “in a fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan.”

I first met Adam when he and a motley group of Code Pink, MoveOn.org, IVAW (Iraq Veterans against the War), and other “representatives” of radical anti-American organizations formed up in front of the Army recruiting station in Washington, DC. Their clear intent was to create a disturbance, but the presence of a few dozen Gathering of Eagles members caused them to reconsider their plans.

I approached Adam and struck up a conversation, during the course of which I learned that he considered himself to be a libertarian. I replied that I considered myself a libertarian, as well, and that perhaps we could agree to disagree on the specific issue of the Iraq war. He seemed amenable to that, but his group reconvened in front of the recruiting station a few weeks later and trashed the place. It was then that I realized that the Adam Kokeshes of the world cannot be relied upon to compromise.

The next time I encountered Adam was last summer at an economic conference in St. Louis. That was when I first learned that he was running for Congress. He presided over a “promote Kokesh” seminar that I attended. He spouted off a basic libertarian message without including any of his own biography, which is, to say the least, nasty. Significantly, he claimed to have been honorably discharged as a sergeant from the US Marine Corps. Both claims are false, as will be demonstrated below.

Adam Kokesh is, in my view, a traitor to his country, and certainly to the United States Marine Corps, in which he “served” as a reservist for several months in a civil affairs unit in Iraq. Upon returning to the States, he enrolled in Claremont McKenna College in California.

While at Clarement McKenna, a pistol was stolen from his car, and Adam dutifully reported the theft to the campus police, who asked him where the pistol came from. Adam said that it was a war souvenir from Iraq, and it was not long before the USMC brought charges against him for smuggling an illegal weapon into the US. His then-pending discharge as a sergeant was changed to that of a corporal.

Adam just didn’t know when to let well-enough alone, because in 2007 he was involved in a street demonstration in DC in which several anti-war protesters were arrested. It seems that he was involved in a bit of street theater in which he led a “combat patrol,” in uniform, to protest the Iraq War. This event was sufficient newsworthy as to cause the Marine Corps to investigate Adam’s involvement in what was obviously an unpatriotic act.

It seems that when the Marine major assigned the investigation contacted Adam by e-mail, Adam replied with a “f__k yourself,” and the Corps thereupon initiated proceedings that resulted in his having his theretofore-honorable discharge downgraded to a general discharge.

Adam then continued to drive nails into his political coffin, as evinced by his visit to the US Army Garrison in Ansbach, Germany. His actions there were, by any measure, seditious, if not downright treasonous. In his own words, Kokesh imparted the following message to our troops:

“We are here to reach out to active duty members of the United States military stationed in Germany and let them know what they can do to help stop the US occupation of Iraq. Soldiers need to know that when they decide to resist, they will have the support and thanks of the global moral majority. We are also here to support the German peace movement. As in the United States, protestors are often dismissed as ignorant and childish, but with the voices of veterans backing them up, they have the credibility they deserve. It is clear that real change will not come from your government or ours, but rather from the righteous voice of compassion.

“The people of Ansbach have chosen to stand up not only to the imperialism of the United States, but also their own country’s history of complicity. The US military has long chosen its own tactical advantage over the consideration of the people in the communities that it affects and claims to protect. It is sad that it has taken so long for Germans to make this stand, but we support them in their opposition.

“Germany has long been complicit in America’s aggression. There is no longer any valid premise for the vast American presence in this country. It is not for your security or benefit, but supposedly for the benefit of America, and it is not in the world’s best interest. The lesson of World War II should not be to remain silent during the next war of aggression.” [Adam Kokesh; May 13, 2007; US Army Garrison, Ansbach, Germany]

Adam Kokesh probably wishes that he had not been so open about his disloyalty, because he is now pretending to be a patriotic, libertarian-leaning, conservative Republican in his congressional campaign. Sorry, Adam; that just won’t wash. You have shown your true colors, and America-loving patriots just won’t let you get away with your masquerade.

Go ahead and renew your ties with the Code Pink/Winter Soldier/George Soros/IVAW crowd. Take off that suit and tie, and let your hair grow long in a John Kerry-lookalike manner. Be what you want to be, as long as it’s not pretending to be an American patriot.

    Thank God for officers such as Captain Baily, who have the honesty and courage to tell the truth, when they know the shitstorm the Paultards are gonna throw his way for this.

  2. OldTrooper says:

    Well, I can’t say that the good Captain is wrong in his assessment. I’m a conservative with a libertarian streak and I sure don’t hold to the same ideals as Kokesh in any manner. Why doesn’t the NM repub party toss him off? Having him fronting as a repub only weakens their actual candidates.

  3. NHSparky says:

    As far as the NM GOP goes, they haven’t endorsed anyone in any race. I’ve e-mailed the NM GOP but they haven’t responded as yet. I’ll try the San Juan County GOP (I went to HS in Farmington) and see if I can get answers there.

  4. 1stCavRVN11B says:

    Good job Capt Bailey! Kokesh is a loser and traitor.

  5. flamingo says:

    Thank God the American people have begun to awaken. We have allowed the enemies among us to gain control of our government, our universities, our school systems, and our judgeships, however with the truth we can regain that control and we must never forget the harm done when we fail to be diligent. Thank God for the truth and thank God for true patriots.

  6. JC says:

    As a former Marine Viet Nam Vet with a former Marine Desert Storm vet son, I am disgusted that a Marine would do anything but support our troops. He’s EXACTLY the kind of person we DON’T want in politics.

    Semper Fi


  7. Ernie says:

    The only “former” Marines are douchenozzles like Kokesh.

    Semper Fi

  8. Just Plain Bob says:

    I always sort of figured that people like Kokesh would view IVAW as nothing but a springboard into politics.

  10. Jonn Lilyea says:

    Yes, you sound just like every retired LTC I’ve ever met. If I’m not mistaken, the Air Force uses “LtCol” to abbreviate that rank.

  11. Finrod says:

    Wow, a stream of absolute gibberish. You just don’t see good quality gibberish anymore. Its even got a dash of batshit crazy which adds a certain depth to it. I really aplaud your lack of skills in even the most basic writing skills. To think your a retired officer, my my, how the standards must have fallen when you were in the Peruvian air force.

  12. ponsdorf says:

    RE: #9

    I do love it when the literati come out to play.

    I’m pretty good a gibberish myself (usually late in the day), this guy IS a master.

  13. Old Tanker says:

    If I get a 12 pack in me or a bottle of scotch I sound just like that…..

  14. David says:

    So how is Adam a traitor? He’s a traitor because he reaches to our troops illegally stationed in foriegn countries? And that he is vehemently against this illegal war? This is not treason, Larry, this is constitutionally protected speech as per the 1st amendment. Look it up sometime. Larry I think it’s time for you to wake up. 9/11 was a false flag attack, Oklahoma City was a fals flag attack, the bombings of the trade towers in 93 was a false flag attack, USS Liberty was a false flag attack, Gulf of Tonkin was too, hell so was JFK. So can you blame Kokesh’s dissent? Everything this country does is for the interests of private offshore banks and corporations. Not to protect us from little brown guys in caves.

    Thank you Captain Bailey. Can you help me expose someone who says he is a Navy Seal but is lying?

  16. teddy996 says:

    @16- Sherrie, the “contact us” link above would put you in touch with someone who may be able to help you out, or at least steer you in the right direction for exposing your daughter’s father for the asshat he is.

    Merely claiming to be a SEAL for atta-boys and free drinks is entry-level bullshit, but it can graduate to more embarrasing antics for you or your family. Better to nip that shit in the bud.
