don't know what the hell happened to him but he's a straight up moron now, anyone that has been following him knows what I'm talking about.

the liberty movement should disregard him and ban him from all the events

Never liked him, but still what did he do?

His market value has just tanked. He is now the equivalent of a junk bond or a penny share.

 

But yeah, what's he been up to?

I watched a youtube of his about a few weeks ago, and reached a similar conclusion. I don't recall what the video was about, but all I can remember thinking is "this guy has lost his mind!"

@ Jon Irenicus

He recently posted several videos broadcasting sheer arrogance and a huge middle finger in response to Ron Paul's farewell. The man's lost it.

I wonder if he's just becoming more of a slave to his "character" on the show. The badass, cynical rebel. I prefer it when he's just speaking as his "real" self.

I haven't heard him in a bit and not one post in here has actually discussed what he has said. 

What has he said? Or done?

Just check out some of his recent YT videos. The man has totally lost it.

Ron Paul ignored Kokesh for the RT controversy.  I'm sure Adam took offense to that.  Adam does sound like he wants to be controversial and is bitter. 

I mean, I was critical of Paul for giving up the campaign in the way that he did, but Adam just wants to stir the pot.

Carry on.

Why all the hostility to Kokesh all of a sudden?

He was a bit disrespectful about Ron Paul's farewell speech, but aren't you guys overreacting a little bit?

Well, his whole show does seem a little bit whack. He really cultivates his radical side more than his radical intellecutal side.

The farewell video response doesnt even make sense.......

Was he expecting rp to yell and go batshit insane at congress or what?

I think the farewell speech was appropriate.

He couldve been drunk or high when he made that vid. Even if he isnt, its just 1 vid among many others. Hopefully he will produce something of more substance.

I liked when he was confronting the socialist occupy protestors last year but stopped paying attention to him after he was taking bong rips during live interviews... A friend of mine said after he and his gf broke up he posted something about getting all the libertarian girls pregnant or something like that on his facebook which kinda creeped her out.

Finally, a breath of fresh air. He's back to 'normal' in this video:
