Radical Agenda EP199 – Clash

Christopher Cantwell - Mon, 2016-09-26 18:53 +0000

In a few short hours, we are going to witness the single greatest confrontation in the history of politics. A frail female leftist who can barely maintain consciousness, much less walk up stairs, is about to get the verbal beating of her career by the bombastic billionaire who beat the main stream media, the republican party, and political correctness without soliciting donations.

Radical Agenda EP199 – Clash

The prize is the presidency of the United States. The most powerful political position in the history of mankind. But perhaps something even more spectacular than this is in play. This election is a referendum not only on the candidates, but on incompatible worldviews that simply can no longer share a system of government in peace any longer. One must crush the other, or we must go our separate ways.

Politics in the United States have largely been a series of negotiations where neither side gets exactly what they want, but we all seemed to get by in some way or another. After a century of left wing expansionary victories, particularly over the last 8 years, the time for negotiation is over. Finally, the Republican party has chosen a candidate who will fight the leftist agenda instead of slowly walking us down its treacherous path. The left has no intention of backing down of course, they never do. That’s why they get what they want.

But after tonight, that may change. This is expected to be the most watched presidential debate in the history of presidential debates. People who have not been keeping track of the candidates and the issues to date will be tuning in for the first time, to hear the powerful, transformative message of Donald Trump, and the pathetic whining of Hillary Clinton, and in just 42 days they will walk into voting booths and decide if they want greatness or weakness for their country.

Because that, ultimately, is our choice. We can choose to discriminate, to have standards, to strive to be better. Or we can choose to be all inclusive, to have no standards, and strive only to be the first to the bottom in a genetic and economic suicide mission.

All that and more, plus your calls at 747-234-2254 or RadicalAgenda on Skype.

Join us, this and every Monday, as well as Wednesdays and Fridays from 5-7pm Eastern for another exciting episode of the Radical Agenda. It’s a show about common sense extremism where we talk about radical, crazy, off the wall things like causing elderly women to have a stroke on live television.

UBER Grandma Trial Date Moved Again, Facing $7,500 in Fines for Driving

Free Keene - Mon, 2016-09-26 13:00 +0000

Civilly Disobedient UBER Driver Stephanie Franz, courtesy CBS Boston

It’s been almost a year since Stephanie Franz aka “UBER Grandma” was the first UBER driver cited for driving people safely to their destination in Portsmouth, NH. The city has been targeting brave UBER drivers with tickets for operating without government permission slips. In the Summer of 2015 the city gang declared UBER drivers who did not jump through the city’s hoops in addition to UBER’s background check and sign up process, would be targeted for ticketing.

The heroic grandmother has been ticketed multiple times in the last year and has racked up at least $7,500 in fines.  She’s also been targeted by local taxi drivers for harassment and vandalism of her car.

UBER has provided Stephanie with an attorney and she’s ready to face down the city gang in court. However, there have been multiple reschedulings of the date, so hopefully this is the final one: Please join UBER Grandma at Portsmouth District Court at 8am on December 13th (here’s a facebook event) and support her courageous stand for your freedom to drive people places without having to ask government permission!

60% of Keene Exit Poll Participants Think Government is Too Big + Gubernatorial Election Recap

Free Keene - Mon, 2016-09-26 02:30 +0000

As we have for the past few years, the Keene Liberty Alliance conducted an exit poll on state primary day asking the question, “Is government too big, too small, or just right?”. This year we polled for about two hours in the evening outside of Keene’s ward four and seventy people responded to the question, with 42 of 70 (60%) choosing “too big” and 28 (40%) choosing “just right”. No one who responded thought government was “too small”.

Of the respondents who said government is too big, eleven people shared contact information with us. Another successful outreach for the Keene Liberty Alliance!  Here are the results from the last time the survey was conducted, which was during the presidential primary.

Also, thank you to everyone who voted for me in the Democratic gubernatorial primary this year.  I ran under the NH Liberty Party banner again as I did in 2014 and received 1,069 or 1.47% of the votes cast, putting me in fourth place out of five. That’s not quite as many votes as the 1,719 I received in 2014, but I likely got some protest votes then against Maggie Hassan who was the incumbent at the time. Given my 2016 campaign spent all of $5 on postage and a few bucks on gasoline to drive to media interviews, that’s a pretty good dollars-spent-to-votes-received ratio.

The point of my campaign wasn’t to win, but to spread the message of New Hampshire declaring independence from the United States as well as the ideas of liberty. In that, I was successful. Thanks to all the media who gave me a fair opportunity to speak. No thanks to some in the media who ignored the smaller democratic candidates including me and Derek Dextraze, the only other honorable candidate of the five who ran for the seat.

Major Shakeup at Libertarian Party of NH: Darryl W Perry Elected Chairman!

Free Keene - Sun, 2016-09-25 19:48 +0000

Darryl W Perry, Libertarian Party of NH Chairman

In 2012, Darryl W. Perry was frustrated with New Hampshire’s embarrassingly ineffective Libertarian Party and its unwillingness to promote the idea of New Hampshire declaring independence from the United States. He joined me and Conan Salada in founding a competitor to the Libertarian Party of NH, which we called the New Hampshire Liberty Party. Darryl has served a key role on our state executive committee ever since, running the yearly conventions and handling the member rolls, in addition to running for office.

This year, Darryl ran for the presidential nomination from the national Libertarian Party and sadly did not receive it, as the LP for years has been compromised on its principles. They proved it yet again with this year’s nomination of Gary Johnson, a former Republican – not a libertarian and definitely not a secessionist.

Darryl followed up his presidential run by launching a principled lobbying firm to focus on NH called Liberty Lobby, he’s lost over a hundred pounds in the last year or so, and just this weekend was unanimously elected to the position of chairman of the Libertarian Party of New Hampshire, ousting the previous no-show chairman who held the seat for years.

It’s a positive sign for the Libertarian Party of NH, which has been floundering for years. The LP of NH has long been a black mark on the otherwise vibrant libertarian community we have here in the Shire. Hopefully Darryl’s election to chair with Rodger Paxton, also a member of the NH Liberty Party, being newly elected to the LP’s vice-chair position will bode well for the future of the LP in New Hampshire. If we’re lucky, we’ll see them add a plank about NH independence into the LP of NH’s party platform in 2017.

Darryl has put in his resignation as a co-chair of the NH Liberty Party as a result of his election to the Libertarian Party chair role, as his time is already limited due to his many activist projects. I wish him the best. We’ll continue our role as New Hampshire’s only pro-secession political party, fielding candidates, and actively seek a new co-chair, though filling Darryl’s shoes is a tall order.

To join the New Hampshire Liberty Party, please fill out this form. You’ll need to agree with our party’s short and unchangeable platform. Unlike the Libertarian Party of NH, membership in the NH Liberty Party is free.

Radical Agenda EP198 – Pedestal

Christopher Cantwell - Fri, 2016-09-23 19:30 +0000

Like most Democrats, Hillary Clinton lies about everything. At the first presidential debate this coming Monday, she will even be deceiving the public about her height. The Clinton campaign understandably feared he being dwarfed by the 6’2″ Donald Trump, adding to the concerns that she would be embarrassed at the 90 minute, commercial free, political slugfest sure to be the most watched thing in the history of US politics.

Radical Agenda EP198 – Pedestal

So they demanded she be able to stand on a stool as to not appear so much shorter than Donald Trump. This request was denied, however she was able to have a special podium built to accomplish the exact same purpose.

This of course is exactly what we should expect from the half dead Democrat who aims to be America’s first female president. They have defined the word “fair” to mean “that which favors Democrats”. To them, a level playing field is one where all players are level, lifted up or dragged down based on their disadvantages and privilege. Where merit and capability have nothing to do with success or failure, Democrats thrive.

This is the summary of all things left of Ronald Reagan. If a woman is in poor health, the media must ignore her literally losing consciousness in front of thousands of people in New York City, to favor her over the man. If she is shorter, and given the appearance of being weaker or less capable, then the optics must be adjusted to make her his “equal”. Her actual frailty, weakness, and incapacity to do the job must never be mentioned, or you will be condemned a sexist.

Same thing with these riots in Charlotte, North Carolina, still happening as of last night. These people literally do not care what the truth is. No matter how much evidence is presented of a gun wielding repeat felon, the rioters continue to insist he was just reading a book while picking up his children. Same as the old “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” line, one of the worst lies of 2015.

Democrats are foundationally detached from reality, as are their fellow leftists in the fringe left parties, the “left libertarians”, and all the other r-selective spectrum vermin we see on a daily basis. Trying to negotiate with them is senseless because the facts have nothing to do with the discussion. They require facts bend to theory, and any challenge to this dynamic is literally Hitler.

There’s a lot more to get to, plus your calls at 747-234-2254 or RadicalAgenda on Skype.

Join us, this and every Friday,  as well as Mondays and Wednesdays from 5-7pm Eastern for another exciting episode of the Radical Agenda. It’s a show about common sense extremism where we talk about radical, crazy, off the wall things like putting women on pedestals.

Radical Anarchist Gay Sex Talk | FLAMING FREEDOM

Flaming Freedom - Fri, 2016-09-23 05:01 +0000

Introducing SEV! The crypto-anarchist entrepreneur. Sev, Remington, and Derrick talked about being the product of social signals and following the path of least resistance — struggling to be true to ourselves and what that means in the context of masculinity. How is YOUR behavior affected by what you were told is–or isn’t–acceptable? Sev is watching Narcos but says Rubicon is a super-good show for libertarian types who question the people who call themselves the government. We talk about gay muslims and the origin of the word “radical” — which led to our discovery of the Radical Fairies global gay anarchist environmentalist movement. Yes, it’s really a thing.

Stuff we didn’t get to tonight, but you should check out anyway:

Watch pansies wet their pants in anger over the “dangerous faggot”

Radical Agenda EP197 – Out Like The Taliban

Christopher Cantwell - Wed, 2016-09-21 18:31 +0000

Another sweet innocent black man was gunned down by racist police in Charlotte, NC. He did nothing wrong of course, he was simply holding a firearm and refusing to drop it while police repeatedly told him to. Obviously if he was white, holding a firearm while police yelled “DROP THE WEAPON!” would have resulted in nothing more than a cookie and a pay raise.

Radical Agenda EP197 – Out Like The Taliban

With this conclusion in their feeble little minds, escaped farm animals rioted in the streets, looted a Walmart, injured 16 police officers, and shouted “We out like the Taliban” in celebration of their crime spree. One activist group held its own news conference, urging the black community to start an economic boycott of white-owned businesses in Charlotte.

This of course all comes on the heels of the neighboring state of South Carolina removing confederate flags from government buildings to appease race rioters there after a racially motivated shooting carried out by Dylann Roof. It also follows decades of affirmative action, welfare statism, section 8 housing, food stamps, WIC checks, and other guilt driven giveaways to the black community that oddly enough still haven’t quelled all of these racial tensions. It seems today, that food, housing, cash, and preferential treatment in the job market, still haven’t uplifted the poor downtrodden black man from his plight. Now he needs a license to break the laws all of us follow.

Something tells me this won’t end well.

There’s a lot more to get to as well, like Anthony Weiner’s sexting relationship with a 15 year old. Female cops increase the number of police shootings. Partisan interpretations distorting poll results. And of course, your calls at 747-234-2254 or Radical Agenda on Skype.

Join us, this and every Wednesday, as well as Mondays and Fridays from 5-7pm Eastern for another exciting episode of the Radical Agenda. It’s a show about common sense extremism where we talk about radical, crazy, off the wall things like the latest excuses for black crime.

Watch Me Slap This Kid

Christopher Cantwell - Tue, 2016-09-20 00:13 +0000

I don’t often hit people, but when I do they tend to hit the ground like a sack of bricks. That’s what happened just outside the Free Talk Live Studio this weekend after I was invited to co-host an episode of Anarchy After Dark with Ian Freeman and Johnson Rice.

Watch Me Slap This Kid

The regular host of that show is named Cody, and Cody was none too appreciative of my talents on the show. We sometimes discuss things on the Radical Agenda that some folks might think of as racist, but I made a point to make my appearance on Anarchy After Dark one of the cruelest things I’ve ever recorded. At one point in the video Cody entered the studio, grabbed a microphone, and asked why nobody was stopping me.

Later we were on the porch outside of the studio, and there was a verbal altercation between Cody and I. He went into the house and shouted to Ian Freeman, the proprietor of the studio “I should kick his ass!”

When Cody came out, I invited him to try, but he declined. Later, he put his hands on my face, and I put my hands on his. Check out the video below

Radical Agenda EP196 – Predictable

Christopher Cantwell - Mon, 2016-09-19 18:00 +0000

So it seems there were a series of coordinated bombings across New York and New Jersey the other day, but we were informed by Democrats that we should not jump to conclusions as to the motives, or religious or ethnic background of the perpetrator. So we all sat quietly of course, waiting for the government to inform us what their investigation discovered about the attacker. Perhaps it would be a white supremacist, perhaps it would be Pepe himself, whatever the case, surely Donald Trump was responsible in some way.

Radical Agenda EP196 – Predictable

Shockingly enough however, the bomber was none other than Ahmad Khan Rahami. Ahmad is a 28 year old naturalized US citizen. He migrated to America from that most wholesome of countries, Afghanistan, which has not at all been known to produce or harbor violent religious extremists. His brother and his father are both named Mohammed, you might like to know.

Ahmad had previously discovered that he could take advantage of hypersensitive gullible white people when he cried racism in 2011. Ahmed and his family opened up a 24 hour fried chicken restaurant, but local ordinances said the restaurant had to be closed by 10:00pm. Ahmad and his family seemed to think enforcing local ordinances was only done to harass Muslims, and so he sued the police for discrimination.

The lawsuit was later dismissed with prejudice.

Ahmad was injured in a shootout with police when they tried to apprehend him. He doesn’t appear to be a very good shot. He reportedly hit one officer in the vest at close range, possibly injuring another in the face, but was “randomly discharging his handgun and one of the officers was able to get close enough to him and return fire” according to what Capt. James Sarnicki with Linden police told CBS2.

There are a few things worth noting here. Ahmad is not a refugee. He came to America through the same old channels that have always been here, and became a US Citizen. I’m not sure how long he has been here, but it has likely been a considerable amount of time. Similarly to the Pulse Night Club shooter, who was the son of Afghan refugees.

When refugees and immigrants, be they legal or illegal, come into our country, they pose a threat to our society. Especially those who come from backwards Muslim cultures that are presently at war with us. The waves of migrants pouring into Europe, the illegal immigration into the United States, the remarkably impractical refugee resettlement programs in the US, and all the other demographic suicide policies Western governments have adopted are only beginning to show the earliest symptoms of their true cost.

This is not just about members of terrorist organizations infiltrating us. This is about second and third generation enemies carrying on blood feuds for generations to come. This is not just about border crossings, or murder. It’s about breeding.

Each year, the United States permanently admits more than 100,000 immigrants from the Middle East. Hillary Clinton wants to increase this by 500%.

If we do not stop this from happening, scenes like we saw from this weekend will be no more newsworthy in your neighborhood, than a drive by shooting is in Chicago.

Join us, this and every Monday, as well as Wednesdays and Fridays from 5-7pm Eastern for another exciting episode of the Radical Agenda. It’s a show about common sense extremism where we talk about radical, crazy, off the wall things like normalizing terrorism.

Activists Hold Beer Pong Event – Cops Threaten Arrests, Then Back Down: VIDEO

Free Keene - Mon, 2016-09-19 02:26 +0000

Beer Pong Protest, September 2016

As promised in a press release earlier this week, Keene liberty activists followed through on a promised Beer Pong event in Railroad Square. Held Saturday at noon, the event was intended to call attention to the oppressive open container ordinance here in Keene. Event organizer Bob Call was interviewed by reporters from the Keene Sentinel and Union Leader and explained how the ordinance targets college students and poor people and doesn’t do anything to actually keep drunk people off the streets.

The open container ban does however transfer a lot of wealth to the state from the victims of the police’s aggression. Enforcing open container means big money for the government, and as event co-organizer Chris Waid points out, it also protects restaurants and bars, giving them the exclusive ability to allow someone to enjoy alcohol on the sidewalk. That means the law is discriminatory in that if you can’t afford to pay for a drink at restaurant/bar prices, you can’t enjoy a drink outside in downtown Keene.

Here’s a video covering the over an hour that we were there (police lied to the Union Leader claiming we were only there for 30 mins):

Yesterday’s protest went well and no one was arrested despite the police threatening everyone playing beer pong with arrest. They cited a city ordinance that arguably does not even apply to Railroad Square, claiming playing games involving throwing a ball are prohibited in the area! Either they were bluffing or they didn’t actually read the ordinance, which specifically states that throwing games are banned from Central Square and “on the streets and sidewalks of the downtown area”. I supposed someone could argue that Railroad Square is a street or sidewalk, but there’s a strong argument it’s neither.

Officers Colin Zamore and Andrew Lippincott deliver threats to the beer pong activists.

Plus, the ordinance is clearly intended to address games that could cause interference in the normal traffic of business in the downtown area: “For the safety and protection of participants, pedestrians, passersby, motorists, and property, no person shall, unless authorized by permit, play games involving running, jumping, throwing, catching, or similar physical activity, including but not limited to games of ball”. Even if it could be argued that Railroad Square is a street or sidewalk, it’s pretty clear that no one’s safety is in jeopardy from a ping-pong ball. The ordinance was obviously crafted to stop frisbee and football players’ projectiles from flying into traffic around Central Square, as it specifically prohibits such activities from that area.

Perhaps that’s why Keene police officers Colin Zamore and Andrew Lippincott never returned after threatening the group with arrest if they continued playing after fifteen minutes had gone by. The activists continued to play for about thirty more minutes and then declared victory and went home.

Police spokesman Thaddeus Derendal lied to the Union Leader reporter when he claimed that the protestors were told they needed a permit to set up the table. I was there the entire time and never heard that, nor did the event organizers. Further, as we proved with the many Free Keene Fests that have been held in Railroad Square in past years, no permits are necessary to set up a table in a public park or common. Free Keene Fests have featured multiple canopy tents, tables, food sales, open gambling, actual beer drinking, and even amplified music. If you ask for permission to exercise your right, you have converted your right into a privilege. Just flex your rights – don’t ask permission, and don’t apologize!

Chug! Chug! Chug! Chug! Activists down a beer bong.

While police could not find any evidence of alcohol being used, they were also very cautious with their tactics. Had this been a group of college students, you can bet their approach would have been more aggressive. Here they merely observed the scene, looking for probable cause to search, like for clearly labeled beer bottles. They did not ask anyone to hand over their bottles for search as they are known to do with students in the college neighborhood.

Officer Zamore refused to share his opinions about alcohol prohibition, but later was more than happy to share his theory about why he did not believe the activists had alcohol. He explained that if we wanted to make good video that we should have had obvious labeled containers of alcohol. He was almost goading the organizers to make his job easier next time so he could make some arrests.

Chris explained to me that they never had an intention to be arrested but were willing to be if it came down to it. The point of the event was to have fun and start a discussion about the absurdity of the open container ordinance. Those things were accomplished and we got the bonus of the police showing up and looking ridiculous threatening people for playing a silly game in a wide-open common. Enjoy the video! Hopefully we’ll see more fun direct action in Keene again soon.

Radical Agenda EP195 – Constitution Day

Christopher Cantwell - Fri, 2016-09-16 18:29 +0000

Today is a tough one for me… I’ve been thoroughly enjoying a bit of a nationalist frenzy, antagonizing egalitarians, and stressing the importance of group preferences. So there is some level of desire to say the Constitution of the United States was some kind of divinely inspired document, spelling out to the letter, the structure of good government.

Sadly, the realist in me pipes up and insists this is foolish. He is joined by my inner anarchist, and even my inner iron fisted dictator. As Lysander Spooner put it;

But whether the Constitution really be one thing, or another, this much is certain – that it has either authorized such a government as we have had, or has been powerless to prevent it. In either case it is unfit to exist.

 

Radical Agenda EP195 – Constitution Day

He said that in 1867, and rather than take the time to list all the unconstitutional actions of the United States Federal Government, perhaps it would suffice to say that fidelity to constitutional limits on federal power have not improved with time.

This is where the constitution sycophants often get tongue tied. They insist firmly that the constitution limits federal power, despite centuries of evidence to the contrary. They continue to whine and complain that their guy didn’t win the election, and that everyone but their guy is some sort of traitor, because only their guy would obey the ancient text to which they’ve assigned divine significance.

A constitution which purports to limit federal power, but can only limit said power if said power obeys on its own volition, in fact provides no such limits. It is a fairy tale which makes other religious doctrines appear scientific by comparison. At least they lack evidence in either direction, while the power of constitutions is proven false in our own time.

But this does not stop the talk radio mafia and other conservative commentators from pounding the same tired old drum. “Oh, if only Ted Cruz and Carly Fiorina were the GOP ticket, they would restore the republic once and for all” cry the same tired old personalities who hated Ron Paul.

Let’s take Steven Crowder as an example. Today he shared a piece by Courtney Kirchoff titled “Dear Leftists: Actually, Yes, the Constitution IS the ‘Be All, End All’”. The piece claims in part;

The Constitution, therefore, is your greatest enemy. It prevents people in government from assuming authoritarian rule. It prevents leftists like you from implementing total thought control by censoring free-speech. It prevents you from disarming people. It prevents you from imprisoning people who disagree with you

Now clearly, the constitution does no such thing. Free speech is indeed censored, and more by the day. The fact that Steven Crowder never says anything that actually bothers the left all that much is just evidence that he’s cooperative with our total destruction. People have been disarmed all across the United States, and barely an election can go by without some new restriction on firearms. People being fined for refusing to bake cakes for gay couples or being charged with hate speech has become a regular occurrence no longer worthy of news coverage.

Leftists don’t hate the constitution because it places limits on government power. They know very well that it never has, and that it never will. What leftists hate about the constitution is that it is a cultural reference for Western civilization. They hate it for the same reason they hate the Confederate Flag, the Gadsden Flag, the ten commandments, Tom Sawyer, and heterosexual white males. They are hell bent on destroying our way of life and they have to eliminate from the minds of the people any remnant of that civilization’s history.

The saddest part of this story is that rather than prevent this from happening, the constitution and it’s phony right wing sycophants actually facilitate this. They insist that leftists have “rights” that are supposed to be protected even while they trample the same supposed rights of others. They insist that the constitution limits their power when elected, even if it does not limit the power of their rivals. Attempts to adhere to constitutional standards has tied the hands of conservatives in the United States while the anti-human left is free to set fire to all that is good and decent in the world, and I for one am sick of watching this happen. We need a Pinochet, but for now I’ll settle for Trump.

4 Years of Victimless Crime Spree

Free Keene - Thu, 2016-09-15 23:40 +0000

I could technically still be in jail today for the “crimes” from the movie.

Derrick J’s Victimless Crime Spree, a full-length feature documentary about my five arrests in Keene, New Hampshire, unleashed itself to the world in Keene Cinemas four years ago today. It’s been viewed on YouTube over 175,000 times.

The world has changed since then. Recording law enforcers is now commonplace. Enforcers in a dozen more states now leave peaceful pot smokers alone. The top series on Netflix is a show about prison overpopulation. Everyone knows that the people calling themselves “the government” spy on their computers, emails, phone calls, and texts, but digital privacy is now possible for all thanks to new apps and devices with built-in encryption. Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin are now beginning to come into wide use.

There’s a lot of reason to be hopeful. Now more than ever, the world is ready for you to question your obedience. Dozens have told me the movie inspired them to move to New Hampshire. That’s the most rewarding part of the experience. In the end, I was facing 9 years if convicted of all charges (none involving a victim). I was sentenced to 540 days in jail, and I ended up serving 60 for my “crime spree.”

Friends made it possible: Ian Freeman (producer), Beau Davis (editor), and the people of the Shire Society who inspire action. I hope Victimless Crime Spree inspires you to achieve more freedom, peace, happiness, and the object of your dreams.

Shelly Raza showed lawmakers at a work session on Wednesday photographs of her now grown son Corey Peterson at different ages. He was taken to the Secure Psychiatric Unit at state prison because he was a danger to himself or others. She said he has improved and has been moved to transitional housing.

CONCORD – One woman told lawmakers that her son’s toenails grew so long while he was at the state prison’s Secure Psychiatric Unit that they curled under his feet and dug into his skin.

Another woman, Shelly Raza, spoke about her grown son, Corey Peterson, being violently “taken down” to the ground for touching a corrections officer. Corey pulled out all of his fingernails and toenails while at the unit, and Raza still doesn’t know how he could have done that.

Neither mentally ill patient had committed a crime, but both were held at SPU because they were considered too dangerous to themselves or others to be housed at the New Hampshire Hospital, the state’s main psychiatric facility.

“(Corey) recently spent 23 months in isolation in the Secure Psychiatric Unit,” Raza said. “He never committed a crime.”

The mothers were among a standing-room only crowd at the Legislative Office Building at a subcommittee meeting on Wednesday. The subcommittee voted to not recommend legislation, House Bill 1541, that would prohibit imprisoning mentally ill people at SPU who hadn’t committed a crime.

Only after the vote did the subcommittee let members of the packed audience share their stories about loved ones at SPU.

From left: Rep. Joe Guthrie, R-Hampstead, Rep. Ken Snow, D-Manchester and Rep. Jim MacKay, D-Concord, who serve on the subcommittee studying legislation to prohibit holding mentally ill people who haven’t committed a crime at the Secure Psychiatric Unit at state prison.

Rep. Ken Snow, D-Manchester, who opposed the legislation Rep. Renny Cushing, D-Hampton, submitted during the last session as being too narrow, said as a work session, the subcommittee didn’t have to take public comments at all.

The subcommittee will report back to the House Health, Human Services, and Elderly Affairs Committee.

A federal civil rights complaint has been filed seeking an investigation into the practice of commingling non-criminal patients with mentally ill patients at SPU who have committed serious crimes such as murder, rape, assault and robbery.

It’s been all about the money it would take to fix the problem for more than a decade, Cushing said.

“I think the failure is not with the people in the Department of Corrections,” Cushing said. “I don’t think it’s with the Department of Health and Human Services. The failure and the reason this condition exists is because of the Legislature,” Cushing said.

A patient with any other disease that was a bit challenging wouldn’t be taken to an unaccredited hospital, Cushing said.

“It is untenable for the state of New Hampshire to take people with mental illness who are a bit of challenge and put them away inside an incarcerated setting and wish for the best,” Cushing said. “The responsibility rests with us.”

Rep. Snow acknowledged that commingling patients wasn’t ideal, but said only five to 10 non-criminal patients at any given time are held at the prison unit.

Snow said, however, there is a bigger problem because anywhere from 30 to 60 mentally ill people on a given day are being “illegally, unethically warehoused” in hospital emergency rooms because there are not enough beds available at New Hampshire Hospital.

Snow praised the staff and treatment at the Secure Psychiatric Unit, which is run by the Department of Corrections, comparing it favorably to the New Hampshire Hospital, which is under the Department of Health and Human Services.

Paula Mattis, director of Medical and Forensic Services at the Department of Corrections, spoke near the end of the session encouraging family members to make sure they tell officials about their concerns. Snow had high praise as well for Mattis.

“I’m not suggesting we ignore this legislation. All I’m saying is the problem is much broader than this. Let’s look at the entire problem.”

Snow recommended a study commission be set up to look at the big picture, at all of the problems in the state’s mental health system.

Rep. Renny Cushing, D-Hampton, is pictured with Eric Largy after Wednesday’s subcommittee work session on Cushing’s HB 1541.

Eric Largy, 49, spent five and a half years at the Secure Psychiatric Unit after being deemed incompetent to stand trial for allegedly beating his father, retired Nashua Police Chief Clifton Largy, in 2009. Eric Largy was re-indicted in May on kidnapping and first-degree assault charges and is free on personal recognizance bail awaiting trial.

Largy spoke out at the work session and offered to meet with anyone who wants more facts about what goes on at SPU. He detailed how his health deteriorated at SPU because of the poor diet and lack of opportunity for exercise and activity.

Largy said he complained to the staff that he wasn’t feeling well one night at about 7:30 and received no medical care until then next morning, which was Thanksgiving, when he was taken by helicopter to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center where he underwent a an aortic dissection. He disagreed with Snow’s positive view of SPU.

“What I see up here going on is a lot of intellectual dishonesty and mere ignorance,” Largy said. “What I’ve seen at SPU is totally different than what you guys are representing here.”

Largy said he wanted to put a human face on people who are held at the Secure Psychiatric Unit. Shelly Raza did, also. Raza displayed a large cardboard collage she made of photos of her son.

“This is 97166,” Raza said setting up the collage of photos of her son at all different ages.
“He’s not just a number. OK? He has a family that loves him.” One large photo shows her grown son as a healthy, smiling, handsome little boy.

Raza said even though Department of Corrections told InDepthNH.org that they weren’t going to charge her criminally for taking a cellphone picture of him with balloons on his birthday Jan. 31, they are still holding her phone. Visitors are not allowed to bring their cellphones into SPU.

“They are still hanging this felony over my head,” Raza said.

Officials told her she could get her phone if she agreed to unlock it and allow them to examine its contents. “Why should they go through my phone?” she asked.

The Secure Psychiatric Unit is not a hospital, Raza said. She would not be facing felony charges for taking a picture of her son at a hospital on his birthday, and she would be able to see him more than two hours a week through glass, Raza said.

“If they want to arrest me for taking a picture of my son, then arrest me. I am sick of being harassed by the Department of Corrections,” Raza said. Her son is doing much better and was just moved to transitional housing on the grounds of the state hospital, Raza said.

Rep. Pam Gordon, D-Portsmouth, was the only subcommittee member to back Cushing’s legislation to prohibit commingling non-criminal patients with people who had committed serious crimes.

“I’m appalled,” Gordon said. “They are treating mentally ill people like prisoners. That’s an issue.”

Even though it is a small number of people, it is simply not right, she said.

“I think we can do better than this,” Gordon said.

Primary Day Chalkings Spark Media Coverage

Free Concord - Thu, 2016-09-15 00:02 +0000

Yesterday’s NH state office primary for the republican and democrat contenders took place during what has been an unprecedentedly strange campaign season. I took about an hour out of my day to stop by the ward 5 polling location as well as the nearby ward 7 location. Chalking a few messages on the ground and recording some videos, the interest of nearby totem holders was piqued, leading to a conversation about what was going on that day.

Many thanks to Nick Reid of the Concord Monitor and Tony Schinella of Concord Patch who both shared photos of the chalking, as well as a detailed write-up of some of the motivations of the chalking in the Monitor’s online edition. Video of the days interactions is available at the FreeConcordRaw youtube channel. Check out the Monitor’s internet-only article, Anarchist’s chalk message on Election Day: ‘Do you even know these people?’

Beer Pong Event Planned for Keene’s Railroad Square This Saturday!

Free Keene - Wed, 2016-09-14 22:21 +0000

Maybe it should be strip beer pong instead? Photo courtesy theCHIVE.

This Saturday, 9/17 at noon, activists will gather in Keene’s Railroad Square and play beer pong in protest of the open container ordinance. The event will be in the spirit of 2010’s Drinking Game, which resulted in my arrest in the city council chambers for “disorderly conduct”, but the charge later dropped. Inspired by the past actions, a new batch of movers to Keene will be taking up the banner of protesting the ridiculous ban on open containers of alcohol.

There are many towns and cities where open containers are allowed, including some right here in New Hampshire. Nearby Westmoreland, for instance, does not have an open container ordinance. The oppressive ordinance is just an excuse to target college students and poor people, give them tickets, and reap thousands of dollars into the system from the victims. It doesn’t stop drunk people from being on the streets, nor does it discourage them from drinking. The ordinance merely takes advantage of drunk people. It’s shameful and needs to be abolished.

I spoke with the beer pong event organizer, Bob Call, today about his motivations. He said, “I think the law is unjust and it’s ridiculous that you can sit outside at local businesses in Keene and consume alcoholic beverages legally, but not if you consume your own alcoholic beverage.”

Labeled containers are likely probable cause for a search. Don’t carry them around.

I’m no attorney, and this is not legal advice, but if you are ever targeted by police for a suspected open container of alcohol, DON’T CONSENT TO A SEARCH! This is the number-one mistake made by the police’s victims. Law enforcement officers are trained to intimidate. If you are walking with a drink in a bottle or cup that is not clearly an alcohol container, the officer will likely approach and say something like, “I have to ask you to hand that over.” At that point, most people will hand it over, consenting to a search of their container.

Take note of the careful wording of the officer’s statement. “Have to”, plus it being spoken in an authoritative manner makes is sound a lot like an order. However, it’s not. He says “ask”. If you’re ever uncertain about what an officer is saying, you have a right to ask, “Is that a request?” or whatever other questions you want. If you are clearly carrying am actual beer bottle, that’s likely enough probable cause for a search, and they won’t have to ask. On the other hand, if there is no clear way they could know by looking that it’s likely a container of alcohol, they have to get your consent to search. Don’t do consent. Politely decline their invitation, ask if you are free to go, and walk away.

See you Saturday 9/17 at noon at Railroad Square in downtown Keene for the beer pong event!

Radical Agenda EP194 – Racist Frogs

Christopher Cantwell - Wed, 2016-09-14 18:14 +0000

The racists have really done it this time, folks. They have ruined one of the internet’s favorite mascots, Pepe the frog. Once an innocent 4chan maymay of mediocre proportions, he has now become a symbol of white nationalism amplified by David Duke supporting presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Radical Agenda EP194 – Racist Frogs

Either that, or the media has completely lost their minds.

One of these scenarios seems slightly more likely than the other…

Now, I won’t deny that the so called “Alt Right” has made good use of the Pepe meme to advance some ideas that are far from egalitarian. I certainly would have to acknowledge that I personally was made aware of this meme by just such folks and have run with it ever since. But watching the Clinton campaign publish a blog post titled “Donald Trump, Pepe the frog, and white supremacists: an explainer” just seemed so ridiculous I could barely contain myself when I saw it. Then watching the leftist media run with it like some major conspiracy had been uncovered I really started to feel like I had to be dreaming.

But this is actually going on. The entire leftist apparatus is so desperate to take down Donald Trump that they are digging through 4chan cartoons and trying to associate them with the Republican nominee for president in yet another desperate and failed attempt to brand him a racist, as if anybody even cares about that label anymore. This is somehow supposed to contend in an election with the leftist alternative narrowly dodging indictments and losing consciousness in public.

Radical Agenda EP193 – Deplorable Collapse

Christopher Cantwell - Mon, 2016-09-12 18:46 +0000

Hillary Clinton is the gift that keeps on giving this weekend. On most days I’m hoping her heart will give out and we’ll be rid of her influence on our politics forever, but lately I find myself hoping she lives just a little bit longer.

Radical Agenda EP193 – Deplorable Collapse

Firstly, I should say I am glad to count myself amongst the “basket of deplorables” she recently referenced while she begged for cash from wealthy race pimps. You know, those “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, you name it” type of people the left has zero argument against whatsoever. I take a great deal of pride in one of the most corrupt politicians in the history of mankind seeing me simultaneously as a threat to mankind’s survival, and a valueless wretch unworthy of mention.

Moreover, I take a great deal of pleasure in the fact that she exposed herself to many less informed voters, as a sort of reverse elitist. Hillary Clinton hates average people. She hates moderately successful people. She caters entirely to the will of the donor class, and she does so by pandering to the lowest elements of our society.

And just while all of that was going on, she lost consciousness and was dragged off by a black man in a van like an episode of The First 48. All those “conspiracy theories” about Hillary Clinton’s health issues, seem slightly less absurd now that her doctor claims she was diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday, which followed claims of allergy issues, dehydration, and overheating. Gee, it seems like this woman has a pretty long list of problems after all.

What I find most interesting about the coverage of all this is, nobody seems to take notice that all of these diagnoses are actually citing a cause of a problem. Pneumonia is a symptom which can be caused by bacteria, fungi, viruses (including HIV), or lung cancer. Overheating and dehydration on an overcast September morning in NYC is not something that happens to an otherwise healthy person. And the claims of allergies are sort of spoiled by pollen counts on the days of these coughing fits.

Hillary Clinton is obviously very sick, but I ask you to join me in hoping she doesn’t die right away. I want to see her cough up a lung and collapse on the debate stage with Donald Trump. Trump has so far been good about not gloating over her collapse, but I hope when she falls on the debate stage he calls her a whore and pisses on her.

And even then I hope she survives until November 7th, so the DNC has no time to appoint a replacement (which would most likely be Joe Biden) and the Democratic Party finds themselves without a viable presidential candidate on election day. From there perhaps, Donald Trump can order Clinton’s body be donated to science, call off all future elections, and begin solving the problems that led to a woman as frail as Hillary Clinton nearly ascending to the presidency.

Let us know your thoughts at 747-234-2254 or RadicalAgenda on Skype.

Join us, this and every Monday, as well as Wednesdays and Fridays from 5-7pm Eastern for another exciting episode of the Radical Agenda. It’s a show about common sense extremism where we talk about radical, crazy, off the wall things like electing a corpse.
