Oath Keepers to Place Billboard Outside Ft. Leavenworth to Protest Small Wars Journal Article Demonizing Tea Party as Future “Enemy” of U.S. Military


Oath Keepers is launching a national effort to place billboards outside of every major military base, urging the troops to honor their oaths by refusing to be used as tools of oppression against the American people.   And we are starting this effort by putting up a billboard right outside the main gate of Ft. Leavenworth Kansas to respond directly to the Small Wars Journal article by Leavenworth instructor Colonel Kevin Benson which paints the Tea Party movement as a future military opponent during domestic CONUS operations by the U.S. military.   You can read more on that article here and here.  Here is the billboard we are putting up:

Since Colonel Benson has chosen to demonize the Tea Party movement, by using the Tea Party as the “bad guys”- along with militias – in his hypothetical scenario of future domestic military operations, and since he is apparently using his position at Ft. Leavenworth to brainwash young officers into thinking that the Tea Party is a potential future enemy they will have to fire upon, we feel it is crucial to counter his propaganda in as direct a manner as possible, sending a clear message not just to him, but to his students there at Ft. Leavenworth and to all others stationed there, and to the broader Army.   Those young officers need to understand that if they fire on fellow Americans, permitting themselves to be used as tools of oppression, and if they participate in martial law on U.S. soil, then they will become the new “red coats”and will be desecrating and destroying all that generations of American fighting men have bled and died to secure – our liberty.

We stand in defense of the rights of all Americans, but since Colonel Benson has chosen to name the Tea Party members in particular as possible future military enemies during domestic operations, we are coming to the defense of the Tea Party in this case.

This is the first of many billboards Oath Keepers will put up as part of our new national campaign.   We were planning on next putting up billboards outside of Camp Lajeune, North Carolina or Ft. Stewart Georgia, and will still do so, but Colonel Benson’s outrageous and dangerous article in the Small Wars Journal compelled us to make Ft. Leavenworth the first base for our billboard campaign.

The Leavenworth billboard will cost an estimated $1,650.00 for the set-up and two months rent.    Oath Keepers Lifetime Member Richard Allison was the first to step up by donating $500.00 for this billboard.   He met Oath Keepers Founder Stewart Rhodes during his trip to Minnesota, and when Stewart showed Richard the mock up for the billboard, Richard pulled out his wallet and slapped down five one-hundred dollar bills to get this project rolling.  Thanks Richard!  You set an excellent example for others to follow.   And indeed, he was followed by another generous individual who donated $1,650.00 (the full price of the Leavenworth billboard), which means that billboard is more than paid for! (with the remainder to be used on other billboards).

Oath Keepers of Kansas, lead by Richard Fry, who is also Patriot Coalition General counsel, helped us secure the Leavenworth billboard, which is 3/4 of a block outside the main gate at Ft. Leavenworth.   We expect that billboard to be ready by September 17.   We are now waiting on the billboard company to complete the printing and installation.

Oath Keepers of Kansas will also secure a billboard outside of Ft. Riley, Kansas, where the famous 1st Infantry Division (the “Big Red One”) is stationed, and we will place a more general “honor your oath” billboard there.  That Ft. Riley billboard will cost an estimated $1,000.00 for two months.  And thanks to other generous donors, we now have that money raised, and that billboard should be up within two weeks.   We are now hunting down suitable billboards outside of other key bases, and are well on our way in this campaign.  The more we raise, the faster we attain our goal of Oath Keepers billboards outside of EVERY major military base across the United States.

We have an initial goal of raising $20,000.00 and have so far raised approximately $14,500.00.  Please help us, if you can, by making a donation to fund this effort.  All donations for the billboards will be used exclusively for that purpose.

Below are mock-ups of billboards we will use outside of Marine Corps bases and Army bases.  We will start with combat arms troops, such as to Camp Lajeune, Ft. Stewart, Ft. Bragg, Ft. Benning, Ft. Hood, Ft. Lewis, Camp Pendleton, etc., but will also do billboards outside of bases for all branches, including outside of Air Force bases where Predator Drone “pilots” work.   This is just the beginning.  The ultimate goal is billboards outside of every base in America.  Help us get it done!  And you are also welcome to go and secure a billboard in your area, if you like, and we will provide the artwork.   Either way, we will strike a serious blow against any plans to use our own troops against us, by sparking the fire of liberty in their hearts and minds.  – Stewart Rhodes, Founder of Oath Keepers

    Speaking of demonizing patriots, please keep an eye on the developing story of former Marine Brandon Raub, apparently taken away and possibly arrested for his patriotic facebook posts. This is being reported on and activistpost. The entry on includes his facebook statement and a link to a youtube clip of a radio interview of Raub’s mother on the John Tolley Show. The facebook statement is simple, polite, and does contain any offensive or inflammatory language. It would appear that Raub is being used as an example to silence others.

    The being sent to a physiotherapist is in my opinion going to be a increasing tactic by government agencies, trumpet charges questioning mental health and weather or not he’d attack the public as a excuse is a great way to disarm dissadents. winning By Proxy.
