On Official Acknowledgement of the Right of Jury Nullification

Adventures in the Free State - 11 hours 36 min ago
Herewith, testimony before the NH Senate Judiciary Committee on HB133, "relative to a jury's determination as to the applicability of law." 4/25/2017. The question of whether juries have the rightful authority, regardless of the State's preferences, to judge not only the facts of a case, but the offended statute at issue -- jury nullification -- was settled (again) in NH in 2012, with the eventual gubernatorial signature on 2011's HB146, which at least restored the right of the defense to present to the jury the possibility of it exercising its collective conscience. The intention of this bill is to settle whether servant government, itself, needs to outwardly come to terms with that fact.


And, of perhaps most note here, some of the historical (even official judicial) recognition (that the self-interested Attorney General and police prosecutor and Judicial Branch attorney in attendance this day, you will surely note, nevertheless choose conveniently to ignore) of the jury's clear and necessarily rightful authority to judge both fact and law. The People run this shop, and the juries that by design represent and run interference for them -- "12 good men and true," and not the government they hire, not their servants -- are the final arbiters of the society that they want.

"We recognize, as appellants urge, the undisputed power of the jury to acquit, even if its verdict is contrary to the law as given by the judge, and contrary to the evidence. This is a power that must exist as long as we adhere to the general verdict in criminal cases, for the courts cannot search the minds of the jurors to find the basis upon which they judge. If the jury feels that the law under which the defendant is accused, is unjust, or that exigent circumstances justified the actions of the accused, or for any reason which appeals to their logic of passion, the jury has the power to acquit, and the courts must abide by that decision."

"It may not be amiss, here, Gentlemen, to remind you of the good old rule, that on questions of fact, it is the province of the jury, on questions of law, it is the province of the court to decide. But it must be observed that by the same law, which recognizes this reasonable distribution of jurisdiction, you have nevertheless a right to take upon yourselves to judge of both, and to determine the law as well as the fact in controversy. Both objects are lawfully within your power of decision."

"For more than six hundred years -- that is, since the Magna Carta in 1215 -- there has been no clearer principle of English or American constitutional law than that, in criminal cases, it is not only the right and duty of juries to judge what are the facts, what is the law, and what was the moral intent of the accused; but that it is also their right, and their primary and paramount duty, to judge the justice of the law, and to hold all laws invalid, that are, in their opinion, unjust, oppressive, and all persons guiltless in violating or resisting the execution of such laws."

-State v. Hokanson, 140 N.H. at 721B906-
cited and reiterated in State of NH v Sanchez, 2005

"It is clear in our criminal justice system that the jury has the power to nullify -- that is, the power to acquit or to convict on reduced charges despite overwhelming evidence against the defendant. ... In a criminal trial, the court cannot direct a verdict of guilty, no matter how strong the evidence. In addition, if the jury acquits, double jeopardy bars the prosecution from appealing the verdict or seeking retrial. Similarly, if the jury convicts the defendant of a less serious offense than the one charged, the prosecution cannot again try the defendant on the more serious charge. This result occurs regardless of whether the jury consciously rejects the law, embraces a merciful attitude, or is simply confused concerning the law or facts. Thus, nullification -- with or without authority, intended or not -- is part of our system."

"The power of nullification plays an important role in the criminal justice system. ... Because an accused criminal is restricted in the defenses he or she can raise, the law recognizes only certain defenses and justification, and correspondingly, limited evidence. The jury's power to nullify provides an accommodation between the rigidity of the law and the need to hear and respond to positions that do not fit legal pigeonholes, such as claims of spousal abuse before the battered-spouse syndrome received acceptance. Jury nullification permits the jury to respond to a position that does not have the status of a legally recognized defense. The power to nullify guarantees that the jury is free to speak as the conscience of the community."

"But, sir, the people themselves have it in their power effectually to resist usurpation, without being driven to an appeal of arms. An act of usurpation is not obligatory; it is not law; and any man may be justified in his resistance. Let him be considered as a criminal by the general government, yet only his fellow-citizens can convict him; they are his jury, and if they pronounce him innocent, not all the powers of Congress can hurt him; and innocent they certainly will pronounce him, if the supposed law he resisted was an act of usurpation."

United States v. Wilson, 629 F.2d 439, 443 (6th Cir. 1980). The Founding Fathers knew that, absent jury nullification, judicial tyranny not only was a possibility, but was a reality in the colonial experience.

It is the jury -- as spokesmen for the community's sense of values -- that must explore that subtle and elusive boundary. ... I do not see any reason to assume that jurors will make rampantly abusive use of their power. Trust in the jury is, after all, one of the cornerstones of our entire criminal jurisprudence, and if that trust is without foundation we must reexamine a great deal more than just the nullification doctrine."

"Jury Nullification encourages participation in the judicial process, which in turn furthers the legitimization of the legal system. Jury Nullification also serves to inject community values and standards into the administration of our laws. Ordinary citizens are given the chance to infuse community values into the judicial process in the interests of fairness and justice and at the same time provide a signal to lawmakers that they have drifted too far from the Democratic will... History is replete with examples that Jury Nullification serves as a corrective 'veto' power of the people over both legislative and judicial rigidity and tyranny."
-Justice William C. Goodle-
Washington Supreme Court

"The right of juries to decide questions of law was widely accepted in the colonies, especially in criminal cases. Prior to 1850, the judge and jury were viewed as partners in many jurisdictions. The jury could decide questions of both law and fact, and the judge helped guide the decision-making process by comments on the witnesses and the evidence. Legal theory and political philosophy emphasized the importance of the Jury in divining natural law, which was thought to be a better source for decision than the 'authority of black letter maxim.' Since natural law was accessible to lay people, it was held to be the duty of each juror to determine for himself whether a particular rule of law embodied the principles of the higher natural law. Indeed, it was argued that the United States Constitution embodied a codification of natural rights so that 'the reliance by the jury on a higher law was usually viewed as a constitutional judgment.'"

"Jury nullification is a doctrine based on the concept that 'jurors have the inherent right to set aside the instructions of the judge and to reach a verdict of acquittal based upon their own consciences, and the defendant has the right to be so instructed.' Though jury nullification may seem like a shocking proposal today, it is by no means a new idea. In fact, jury nullification was first espoused nearly three and one half centuries ago."

"It is left, therefore, to the juries, if they think the permanent judges are under any bias whatever in any cause, to take on themselves to judge the law as well as the fact.

Recent Audio Problems

Christopher Cantwell - Tue, 2017-04-25 17:24 +0000

Several Radical Agenda viewers and listeners have brought to my attention that there is some skipping in the audio on both the podcast and the YouTube videos of recent episodes. I want you to know that I am aware of this problem, I take it very seriously, and will work to resolve it before Wednesday’s show.

Recent Audio Problems

The problem, well, the most recent one anyway, results from a lack of computer resources on my mobile setup. I’m not in a position to buy a new laptop right now, and I don’t want to solicit funds for one immediately after I’ve hammered you all several times to cover my travel expenses. However, I do have the capacity to connect a separate audio recording device to my sound mixer. This device does not depend on the computing resources that are consumed by the video streaming and recording, and should at the very least provide a clean audio podcast, even if there is some choppiness in the video version.

Unfortunately, this resolution does not give me the capacity to go back and fix the episodes that have already been released. That damage has been done, and I can offer only my most sincere apologies to you for any disruption it has brought to your enjoyment of the program.

I want to thank the listeners who brought this trouble to my attention. I know there are times in the past when I have not received criticism very well. However, at least when it comes to technical issues I am aware that these complaints are well intentioned and aimed at improving the Radical Agenda. So I am appreciative of the feedback.

Thanks for sticking with me through these difficulties, and for helping me to improve along the way.

Pikeville and the Traditionalist Worker Party

Christopher Cantwell - Tue, 2017-04-25 09:05 +0000

This coming weekend, the Traditionalist Worker Party is holding an event in Pikeville, Kentucky. It plans to include several white nationalist groups, including those of the National Socialist variety. I had been considering attending the event, but due to expense I had mentioned on the show it was less than likely I would attend.

Pikeville and the Traditionalist Worker Party

I’m writing to you today in the hopes we can facilitate my attendance because a couple of things have since come across my radar which make me view that attendance with greater importance.

Firstly, however, although I don’t identify as a National Socialist, I have become aware that white people are a racial group with distinct interests that frequently clash with the perceived interests of other racial groups. Other racial groups, which are often otherwise rather fragmented, do organize for their interests at the expense of our own. We of course are perpetually told that for whites to even have an identitarian movement or group, carries the connotation of some special form of wickedness. For anyone to specifically advocate for white interests, is “white supremacy” and “racism” even when we seek to pursue our interests in harmony with others.

This is problem compounded by the usually fragmented nature of these other groups. Central and South Americans, when not organizing against whites, rarely get along with one another. Mexicans and Guatemalans and Salvadorans do not see themselves as a monolithic group of “Latinos” or “Hispanics” until they come to the United States or Europe and organize for their interests against whites. In California prisons, Northern and Southern Mexicans even must be kept separated from one another in order to prevent open warfare. Chinese, Japanese, and Korean people, do not all view each other as Asians while in their own countries. One need only look at the difference between North and South Korea to see how differently those two cultures on the same peninsula view one another. None of these folks are particularly interested in assimilating millions of Muslims, nor are they particularly anxious to uplift the poor downtrodden black man. Yet somehow upon reaching the soil of white countries, they suddenly all become “people of color” who stand together to take from whites whatever whites can be convinced not to defend.

For making this observation of plainly obvious facts, I as a white male am predictably accused of being a racist. It’s happened so frequently that I no longer bother telling people about all my relationships with blacks, hispanics, Jews, and other non-whites. I realized a long time ago that such efforts to justify my existence were futile, because this was never about me hating anyone or doing anything to victimize members of other racial groups. The word “racist” has simply become a racial epithet thrown at white people to convince them not to protect what belongs to them, and sadly it has been remarkably effective in doing so, to the point that our very existence is threatened.

Well, if desiring to see my people survive makes me some kind of villain, then I will gladly accept the title of bad guy. I no longer bother arguing with people about whether or not my survival is racist or terrible. I just demand I survive and do what is necessary to secure a future for our children. Whatever disagreements I may have with socialists or other white identitarian movements, can be discussed with civility after the threats to our existence have been sufficiently managed to permit us the luxury of infighting. That conversation is impossible while people who insist that race and gender are social constructs, simultaneously tell me I am anti-science for having skepticism on the ability of taxes to change the weather.

This all seems almost too obvious to state, but sadly I feel compelled to say it anyway because the driving narrative in our society as of late seems to overlook all of this. So I think it wise to backburner arguments about potential future economic and legal systems, until the threats to our safety are dealt with.

Let there be no mistake about it, there are threats to our safety.

At many right of center events in the United States lately, violence has erupted. Behind the violence have been groups of black bloc terrorists calling themselves “Antifa” or “Anti Fascist Action”. These frustrated youth, have gone so far as to set 6 figure fires to prevent a gay Jewish immigrant from speaking, because they are convinced he is a Nazi. They have maced and assaulted women, broken windows, hit people with poles, bats, and bike locks. Now that our people have begun to fight back, as discussed on episode 293 of the Radical Agenda, they are seeking firearms to escalate their violence.

After today’s show, I was made aware that the city of Pikeville has passed an “emergency ordinance” barring the wearing of masks in public. The ordinance itself is no threat to us, we never sought to hide our identities. It does however speak to the threat level surrounding the event. There are people who literally want to kill us, just because we advocate for the interests of our people, and the Pikeville City Council has seen that threat as so imminent that they would curtail the liberties of the people of Pikeville to mitigate the risk. I am not complaining about this curtailment, mind you, I’m just attempting to point out the severity.

I want to attend this event, and stand together with the people who advocate for white interests. If necessary, I want to be able to fight side by side with them against the criminals and terrorists who are willing to resort to criminal violence to see us silenced. The Traditionalist Worker Party came to my defense with shields as leftists rushed toward us outside the Richard Spencer event in Auburn Alabama. I feel indebted to them, and were I to find out one of them were harmed in a way that might have been prevented by my presence, I’d have a great deal of trouble looking at myself in the mirror.

I’d need to raise no less than $500 to cover the expenses of the trip, and I’m still in the hole from the visit to Auburn. I already live by the generosity of this audience and I feel bad asking you for more than I already do, but I hope I’ve illustrated why I felt making this request was worth doing. If I cannot raise that much for the trip, I won’t be able to make it. So if you wanted to only contribute in the event your contribution would be put to that purpose, I’d ask you to contact me instead of just sending the money. Or you can of course send me whatever amount you like, and if I cannot put it to my travel expenses to Pikeville, I’ll put it to other good use for this production. If someone out there is feeling very generous and wants to sponsor all or a significant portion of the trip, then this of course would be very much appreciated, and I would gladly give you a public thank you or keep it a secret, whatever your preference.

Ways of financially supporting this and my other endeavors can be found on the donations page, where I accept PayPal, Bitcoin, Dwolla, Venmo, and postal mail. You can also purchase a premium membership to this website, or some merchandise from my shop. I also have affiliate links which allow me to get a cut of purchases you make from other online stores.

Thanks so much for your ongoing support and for reading this very important message

Radical Agenda EP293 – Rapid Fire

Christopher Cantwell - Mon, 2017-04-24 19:31 +0000

Here at the Radical Agenda, we sometimes have to work very hard to put show prep together. This is not one of those days. I have so many stories on my radar today, that I could not possibly endeavor to put them into a singular cohesive summary.

Radical Agenda EP293 – Rapid Fire

For example, AntiFa is looking to upgrade their weaponry from pepper spray and flagpoles, to guns. This was more or less inevitable, of course. These skinny communist losers were never fit for hand to hand combat with the likes of us. So the moment we started fighting back, they started winding up in hospitals. They think they will become a more formidable force when they show up with firearms, but they will surely be proven wrong once again. These leftist idiots are still trying to figure out how they can even obtain firearms, so they are pretty unlikely to have done nearly as much training as the right. So instead of putting these degenerates in hospitals and jail cells, we’ll be putting them in the morgue once they take it to that level.

Donald Trump is being held hostage, and forced to make propaganda messages for the oligarchs. We must rescue our dear leader from the clutches of our enemies.

There is some good news though, the communist Pope has decided he will not need his bulletproof vehicle when he visits Egypt, despite recent terrorist attacks. Perhaps we’ll get lucky and kill two birds with one stone. Physically removing a communist from the papacy, and waking up the world to the danger of importing Islam.

A burglar fries some well seasoned chicken while drinking his victim’s vodka. Care to guess his complexion?

#BlackTwitter is basically the whole entire reason for mankind’s existence.

The man behind the Shelley Garland article advocating white men be denied voting rights has been identified, and he’s very sorry about exposing the fraud and corruption of left -wing journalists.

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

So 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 gunfights.

4/20: State Representatives Smoke Cannabis at NH State House with Crowd of 100+

Free Keene - Sat, 2017-04-22 13:00 +0000

Several longtime cannabis freedom activists at the 2017 Concord smoke-out.

Since 2009, on April 20th at 4:20pm people from across New Hampshire gather in front of the State House in Concord to commit mass civil disobedience by smoking, vaporizing, or otherwise consuming cannabis in public. As has happened in previous years, we were again joined by multiple state representatives including Libertarian Caleb Dyer of Pelham, NH as well as Keene’s Ward One Democrat, Joseph Stallcop, and Republican Glen Aldrich of Gilford.

Representatives Dyer and Stallcop were both featured speakers and also toked up with a crowd of over 100 people while representative Aldrich took photos, as he has done for years at the rally. Also photographing the event was Granite Haze of Mind blogger Justin Campagnone – you can check out his albums here. I had the honor of video recording the event, including all the speakers. I’ll be posting each speech to the Free Keene YouTube channel, so be sure to subscribe and click the notification bell on the YouTube channel to see the videos as they are released! Meanwhile, here’s a video with some highlights of the event to tide you over:

This year’s event began with speakers at 3pm including representatives Dyer & Stallcop, me explaining the right of Jury Nullification, and Libertarian Party of NH chairman Darryl W Perry. The overcast weather threatened rain which thankfully never materialized and the temperature was cool and pleasant with a couple dozen already in attendance at 3pm by the street, smoking cannabis and chalking messages on the pavement. As we closed in on 4:20pm (the time that cannabis is used in celebration globally) the numbers of attendees swelled to easily over 100 people.

Event organizer and executive director of the 420 Foundation, Shire Dude emceed (and live streamed) the event. As the crowd gathered directly in front of the state house close to 4:20, we heard from speakers including Carla Gericke of the Foundation for New Hampshire Independence, the executive director of the NH Cannabis Freedom Festival, Rick Naya, and medical cannabis consultant John Padellaro who told us how cannabis helped him with his inoperable brain growth. Padellaro also said, “I don’t support legalization. I support ending prohibition.” This sentiment was echoed by speakers Perry and Gericke, with Gericke also calling on New Hampshire’s new governor, Chris Sununu, to pardon all peaceful drug offenders and end funding for “Granite Hammer”. Perry and representative Dyer’s speeches focused on the current legal status and future of cannabis reform in New Hampshire while Naya reflected on the previous 420 rallies and people we’ve lost to prohibition. In his off-the-cuff speech, representative Stallcop of Keene told the attendees, “we need to stop looking at each other in terms of left or right. I see, in all honesty, there is right and there is wrong…We will stand together as one people and say that this is our decision, this is our choice.”

New Hampshire bitcoiners were also scattered throughout the 420 rally, celebrating the same-day NH senate vote of 13-10 to pass the Bitcoin protection bill on to governor Sununu. With cannabis decriminalization passed by a record 89.8% of the NH house, it is widely expected to finally make it through the senate and new governor this year. In other cannabis-related political news, major expansion of the medical cannabis qualifying conditions also seems to be making good headway as well, with conditions like chronic pain and post-traumatic stress disorder possibly being added to the list. Will republican governor Sununu prove to be more compassionate on this issue than his democrat predecessor? Remember, this is New Hampshire, where political labels don’t always mean what you think they mean.

Can anyone identify this cop watching the event?

While mainstream media news reporters present seemed to be limited to the Concord Monitor’s Allie Morris, the police were definitely watching, with what many suspected to be a police drone surveilling from above during the main event at 4:20. While one could say the drone being police-operated is speculation, there was definitely an unmarked police SUV parked and observing the crowd early on in the event. After I noticed him sitting there, I walked over to the grass near where he was sitting and pointed my camera at him. Within a minute, he said something into a microphone, rolled up his window and left, not to return. Besides a few state police cruisers driving by (not unusual for downtown Concord), that was the extent of any obvious police presence. As has been the case over the eight years of this epic civil disobedience event, no one was arrested.

Overall, the event was fantastic with plenty of people, great speakers, good weed, conversation, and camaraderie. The future looks bright for cannabis in New Hampshire, especially as more liberty-oriented activists migrate here as part of the Shire Society and Free State Project. If you care about freedom and want help make it happen, you should really consider moving here ASAP. Here are over 101 Reasons Why Liberty Lives in New Hampshire. Stay tuned here to Free Keene for the latest on ending prohibition in New Hampshire.

Radical Agenda EP291 – Awe, Burn!

Christopher Cantwell - Wed, 2017-04-19 20:17 +0000

Today I’ll be doing an audio only episode of the show, due to the not so great Internet connectivity at the hotel I’m staying at. You can listen on TuneIn, or using the raw audio stream with your browser or favorite streaming app.

Radical Agenda EP291 – Awe, Burn!

I’m at this hotel, because as you may have heard, I was in Auburn Alabama last night for a Richard Spencer event. He was on episode 290 with me discussing the trouble leading up to it. Specifically that he had gone to some expense and paid for security and the University cancelled his speaking engagement because of terrorist threats from left wing criminals.

Justice does occasionally prevail, however. Richard announced yesterday afternoon that a court ordered Auburn University to honor their agreement with him, and host the event. I’ve not had time yet to research the legalese behind the case, so I cannot speak intelligently to the actual legal argument, but I’m glad he won, whatever the merits. Auburn is a State University. It is subsidized, like nearly all colleges, by the Federal Government. If you listen to the mainstream media, Richard Spencer and Vladimir Putin might as well have been the only people who voted for Donald Trump, and yet they were so powerful that together they made him President of the United States anyway. A public institution shunning relevant speakers because they disagree with his politics is completely unacceptable. Surely, there have been far more dangerous, and far less relevant people than Richard allowed to speak on this and other campuses. Denying him a platform is purely politically motivated, and it is impossible to pretend otherwise.

I arrived just as the event was beginning, and it was too late for me to get inside. That didn’t bother me much though. As you know, I spend my days watching leftists go crazy, and the crowd outside the event made for a target rich environment.

There’s a lot more to get to, but I don’t think we’re going to be taking calls today.

So join us, this and every Wednesday, as well as Mondays and Fridays from 5-7pm Eastern (I might cut it short today due to lack of calls and video) for another exciting episode the Radical Agenda. It’s a show about common sense extremism where we talk about radical, crazy, off the wall things like stampeding communists.

Radical Agenda EP290 – Heckler’s Veto

Christopher Cantwell - Mon, 2017-04-17 01:51 +0000

Richard Spencer was scheduled to speak at Auburn University in Alabama on Tuesday, April 18th at 7:00pm Eastern, until left wing terrorists threatened the university and the cowards who run it took that opportunity to shut down the event. Or so they thought. Richard says he is going to be showing up anyway, though the details are being kept under a certain layer of operational security.

Radical Agenda EP290 – Heckler’s Veto

I’ll be attending, because like many of you I am sick and tired of violent, dishonest people shutting down open discourse just because the truth interferes with their political agenda and warped worldview. It’s a long ride for me, but worth the time, effort, and risk. I cannot continue to sit in front of my television and watch these people destroy my country while I wait for this insanity to make its way to New Hampshire.

Richard will be joining me for 15 minutes to discuss what led up to this, and what you should do if you want to get involved.

Due to the time constraints the travel places upon me, I won’t be able to do the regularly scheduled Monday show. This Sunday special will have to suffice, but I should be able to make it in time for Wednesday.

Also, if any of you would like to meet up while I’m traveling, please contact me through the form on the website and let me know your approximate location and what you would like to do and I will see if I can accept your invitation.

And of course, if any of you would help to offset my travel expenses by donating, I would be very grateful.

So join us, this Easter Sunday at 10:00pm 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 free speech.

Manchester Activists Protest US Syria Strikes

Free Keene - Sun, 2017-04-16 21:17 +0000

Last weekend, Manchester liberty activists gathered downtown for a protest aimed at US military intervention in Syria. While libertarians support self-defense of the individual, they also support consensual methods of paying for group defense. If someone wants to go attack people in other lands, those supporters should be the ones who pay for it. People who want peace should not be forced, through taxation, to foot the bill for violent adventurism. Hopefully, secession will help disconnect the people of New Hampshire from the depredations of the evil federal government in the future.

The protest did attract some media attention as WMUR-TV reporter Siobhan Lopez filed this video report. Thanks to Kathy Peterson for the photo.

Liberty Lobby Week 13 Videos: Cannabis, Drones, & More

Free Keene - Sun, 2017-04-16 20:43 +0000

Liberty Lobbyist Darryl W Perry and I went to the state house this week to testify on more legislation. Here are several full hearing videos from last week:

HB 640 is this year’s cannabis decriminalization bill, as passed by 89.8% of the state house. This is its senate committee full public hearing:

HB 215 would create a committee to study legalization of cannabis in New Hampshire. It passed the house and this is its senate committee full public hearing:

HB 97 would restrict government use of drones (good), but would also restrict personal and business use of drones (bad). Here’s its senate committee full public hearing:

HB 194 would make it so employers no longer need to ask government permission to pay biweekly. Here’s its senate committee full public hearing:

HB 247 would create additional lead testing regulations. Liberty Lobbyist Darryl W. Perry read testimony from former state representative Mark Warden against it:

Showtime’s “Gigolos” Star Vin Armani Interviews Me on Reasons Libertarians are Migrating to NH

Free Keene - Sat, 2017-04-15 16:55 +0000

I had the pleasure of being a guest for most of an hour on the Vin Armani Show on Activist Post.  Vin is one of the stars of Showtime’s “Gigolos” reality TV series and he’s also a voluntarist/agorist who I met while at Anarchapulco.  He had not heard of the libertarian migration to New Hampshire and was fascinated by my speech at Anarchapulco on why liberty-loving people should move to New Hampshire as soon as possible.  So, he asked me onto his video show to talk about it further.

Here’s the interview which touches a little on my radio show, Free Talk Live, but is mostly about many of the reasons why libertarians, voluntarists, bitcoiners, and agorists should move to New Hampshire. My interview starts about 1h10m into the program:

Radical Agenda EP289 – The Franchise

Christopher Cantwell - Fri, 2017-04-14 16:37 +0000

Here at the Radical Agenda, we have what might be described as mixed feelings about voting. Democracy obviously isn’t working out very well, at least not by the standards of anyone who values peace or prosperity. Some libertarians have suggested, and for a time I agreed, that boycotting elections is the answer. That by this method, we could delegitimize democratic governments and default back to some kind of Rothbardian market order.

Radical Agenda EP289 – The Franchise

There are some obvious problems with this. Most obviously, anyone who boycotted the election would necessarily have no say in its outcome, leaving control over government to one’s political rivals. Since libertarians are almost exclusively white and male in America, a libertarian boycott of the polls would leave control of the the State to women and non-whites.

Well, if you think that will bring us closer to a civilization based on property rights and contracts, then perhaps you should pack your bags and head over to South Africa. Shelley Garland, who appears at first glance to be a white male indulging in a transgender delusion, wrote a blog at the Huffington Post suggesting that white males should be “denied the franchise” or right to vote, for a period of 20-30 years in South Africa. “Her” reasoning was that white men, shockingly enough, keep on voting for policies that are in line with conservative/libertarian values, such as  strong protections of private property. Without that influence, says Shelley, all of the world’s problems would be solved because they could take the white man’s property away and then everyone would have what they needed.

Unsurprisingly, there is little thought of what will happen to white women when the white vote is cut in half, and their traditional protectors no longer have a say in matters of State. It is easy to sound like a defender of women by demonizing men if your audience is stupid enough, but I doubt many South African white women are looking forward to being surrounded by black African males with no white men standing between them.

As for the economics, there really isn’t any economic analysis to respond to. Just the simple assertion that white males are bad and have property, and that non-whites will be happy when they have the fruits of the white man’s efforts. What all that capital does when it is distributed amongst people with IQs around 70 never seems to  occur to Shelley. I predict a wild weekend or three will see that wealth rapidly accumulated into a few hands once again.

You might have thought this was some mistake. Some editorial error. Surely the Huffington Post would never post something so racist and sexist and anti-democratic after all their demands that racism and sexism be outlawed and ended entirely. Thankfully however, the Huffington Post reliably assured us that this blog was just what the world needed. You see, racism and sexism are not about race and sex per se. It is about ending the white race by bringing down white males and leaving their women to the mercy of other males.

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

So 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 voting.

2017 Pine Tree Riot Celebration

Adventures in the Free State - Thu, 2017-04-13 13:53 +0000
What? Where? The Pine Tree Riot? One of the first acts of rebellion by the American colonists? Yeah, you know Weare. The second annual Pine Tree Riot Celebration, Weare, NH, 4/12/2017...


"Join Americans for Prosperity New Hampshire in commemorating one of the earliest organized acts of American resistance against British tyranny as we celebrate the 245th anniversary of the Pine tree riot which occurred in 1772 in Weare, New Hampshire. Long a symbol of centralized government overreach, the Pine Tree Riot was a testament to the spirit of independence, freedom, and the New Hampshire way of life. Therefore, it is fitting that the celebration of the anniversary of the spark of the American Revolution takes place during the same week as the day Americans are forced to hand over their hard earned money to an overgrown federal government. Today, both the State and Federal government make a habit of increasing the burden on taxpayers by continually growing Washington based programs without any expectation of accountability. This year's tax day we have an incredible opportunity to roll back those burdens, both the federal and NH State legislature are considering reforms on taxes. It is up to WE the people, to ensure those in elected office live up to their promises of lifting the weight of government from the backs of the taxpayers."

Radical Agenda EP288 – AntiFa Roundup

Christopher Cantwell - Wed, 2017-04-12 19:28 +0000

Augustus Invictus joins us via Skype for the entire two hours today to discuss what’s happening with him, and  other pressing stories. A Facebook page too obscure to mention here tagged me in a post bashing Augustus, and when I went to see what they were about, the entire page was filled with left (((libertarian))) blogs bashing Augustus. I had so much fun looking over them by myself, that I thought this could only be improved by going over them with him, for the entertainment of the Radical Agenda audience.

Radical Agenda EP288 – AntiFa Roundup

Here’s one of my favorites: “Augustus Sol Invictus Is Not Welcome In My State” by David Colborne of the Libertarian Party of Nevada. David is concerned that Augustus is a very bad person and should thus be prevented from entering the state of Nevada. David reminds us that he has a wife and children and a job, otherwise he would resort to criminal activity to accomplish this goal. I wonder if David has written anything about preventing Islamists and communists from entering the United States?

Here is another: “Free Speech and No Platform: A Brief Libertarian Case for Silencing Fascists” over at Libertarians United Against Fascism. The author (who does not see fit to reveal his identity) claims it is fascists who refuse honest debate, not the communist rioters who set six figure fires to silence gay Jewish immigrants. By this supposed libertarian standard, the mere fact that someone has been deemed a fascist in his infinite wisdom, is evidence enough that they should be silenced by any means necessary.

There are a few others, and of course a lot of other more important stories to get to, but here is the point I want to draw here. This stopped being about principles or morality a long time ago. It seems to me the right is just now figuring this out, while the left has known it all along. The simple physics are this: One group has interests, another group has interests which are diametrically opposed to the first group’s interests, so only one can achieve their goals, and must do so at the expense of the other.

You can call it left vs right, whites vs. non-whites, communists vs. fascists, or whatever you want. Ultimately, this is us vs. them, no matter who the us and them turn out to be. We are not designed to be a global mass of harmonious humanity. We are tribal pack animals who pursue group interests the expense of other groups. If you call yourself an anti-fascist in 2017, then you’re on the side of arsonists and communists and people who assault women and senior citizens for disagreeing with their politics, and you better believe that makes you “them” as far as I’m concerned.

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

So 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 AntiFa!

I’m still banned from streaming to YouTube and Facebook, so there won’t be any streams there. I’ll be airing on Ustream and TuneIn today only. The video will be uploaded to YouTube by the next day.

Let's Study Ending Prohibition...!

Adventures in the Free State - Wed, 2017-04-12 15:04 +0000
No, no, no. We might learn things that conflict with our religion. We might finally have to face them. And that could lead to ceding our ill-gotten authoritah. Maybe even to dancing. That simply won't do...

HB215, "establishing a commission to study the legalization, regulation, and taxation of marijuana," Senate Judiciary Committee, 4/11/2017.

Rep. Almy in her testimony refers to this hearing from 2014, where, as Committee Chair, she had invited state bureaucrats to complain about how they'd be negatively impacted were their employers (that's you, taxpayer) to actually get their way and the servants end the dangerous, expensive -- in blood, treasure and liberty -- and unauthorized marijuana prohibition.

My commentary in part on that hearing, while it focused on actually doing something good rather than just talking about it more, still perfectly applies:
"Following an historic passage (the first affirmation by a state legislative body, as other successful legalization efforts have been by referenda) by the NH House on 1/15/2014, HB492, "relative to the legalization and regulation of marijuana," confronts its second House committee (the first having been Criminal Justice, so very long ago), Ways and Means, where the State explains why it believes ending prohibition is economically scary and endangers its oppressive Byzantine house of regulatory cards -- an abode enabled and constructed entirely by prohibition, 1/30/2014. And besides, feds. So... Hey, sometimes the Constitution and the nettlesome limits it intended to impose just have to take a back seat, y'know...?"
But yeah, this wouldn't turn into yet another stacked deck, or anything (like when the "citizen representative" seat on the medical marijuana commission was somehow filled with a cop). No, not at all...
