Navy SEAL says: “WHEN I WOKE UP, MY ARMS AND LEGS WERE IN CHAINS” .. “Former Navy SEAL Tells of Forced Incarceration under Obama Regime in 2009-

Harry G. Butler III was a Navy SEAL from 1969 to 1973, trained in “Underwater Demolition.”

(Jul. 18, 2013) —In an initial interview with The Post & Email, Mr. Harry Galvin Butler, III said that in late 2008 and early 2009, all he wanted to do was point out was that Obama was “a phony” and see Congress act in the interest of national security. Instead, he ended up spending virtually the entire year in federal prisons awaiting a “psychiatric evaluation.”

Butler is a proponent of the U.S. Constitution and the Second Amendment and perceived that Obama, by virtue of being “a phony,” was “playing with my Constitution.” He told us that Navy SEALS and other military members “hate phonies.” He has no previous psychiatric history or criminal record.

Last August, former Marine Brandon Raub was arrested by the Secret Service and FBI, taken into custody and placed in a psychiatric institution where he was told he would be forced to take medication which he did not want.

He was freed approximately one week later after a federal judge reviewed his detention and found no probable cause by which to hold him. Raub’s plight was taken up by The Rutherford Institute, which is suing the government on Raub’s behalf for an unspecified amount. In a May 22, 2013 press release, Rutherford stated:

The complaint, filed in federal court in Richmond, alleges that Raub’s seizure and detention were the result of a federal government program code-named “Operation Vigilant Eagle” that involves the systematic surveillance of military veterans who express views critical of the government.

Institute attorneys allege that the attempt to label Raub as “mentally ill” and his involuntary commitment was a pretext designed to silence Raub’s speech critical of the government and that the defendants violated Raub’s rights under the First and Fourth Amendments.”
