Radical Agenda EP283 – Caucus

Christopher Cantwell - Fri, 2017-03-31 10:48 +0000

Here at the Radical Agenda, we’ve come to accept factionalism as factual. Whatever merit there may or may not be to an idea, so long as the selective pressures of an economy permit the survival of parasites, nonsense will thrive. In the absence of such subsidies, it cannot exist. For these reasons and others, very sensible people have long insisted that we just need to rid ourselves of the welfare state, and then all will be well with the world.

Radical Agenda EP283 – Caucus

There are two rather glaring problems with this strategy. Firstly, we live in a hyperinclusive mass democracy, where courts prevent the President of the United States from guarding our borders during wartime, because they think he’s a racist. Secondly, the entire point of a welfare state is to breed and import more welfare recipients who will vote for it. To put it bluntly, this problem is not going to get solved democratically. While we can celebrate what few electoral victories we may have remaining, any man who isn’t preparing himself for less verbose conflicts, may as well be digging his own ditch.

We are in a fight for our survival, and the weapon in play is the State.  The stakes are so high, that our fate may already have been sealed. We are not just trying to delay some future catastrophe. For our people to survive at this point, we will have to cede some territory, and remove the invaders from that which we can still defend. We are literally fighting for nothing short of the survival of the white race, because without the white race, there will be no constitutional conservatism, there will be no such thing as libertarianism. Nobody will ponder about the greater good, or the primacy of the individual. Never again will someone read Lysander Spooner on the floor of the United States Senate. We will instead become every third world hellhole the neocons told us we had to liberate with the blood of our sons, and soon, that of our daughters.

I’m not going to say that our other differences don’t matter. On the right, we have plenty to debate. There is only one binding purpose of the right, and that is to diminish the left. However hard any number of content producers may try to make it seem this way, there isn’t a definitive right wing solution to every calculation. What separates us from our leftist rivals, is that we seek to see the problem solved, and that they seek to say the problem doesn’t exist. The number of ways we might go about solving it, are just as numerous as the number of ways they can go about exacerbating it.

That’s why we have primaries. That’s why I’m a Republican. We, the people who want to solve the problem, debate the best way to do it, and we have a contest to decide who will represent us against our enemies who want to make the problem worse. I could think of better ways to make these decisions, but I suspect things will have to get pretty bad in the West before men wage war against their own governments in hopes of putting an end to democracy.

Until then, this is what we’ve got, and unsurprisingly, it’s not working out very well. Let’s take this Obamacare “repeal and replace” nonsense under a microscope for example. Donald Trump promised to repeal Obamacare, just like every Republican presidential candidate, despite the fact that none of them actually have the constitutional authority to repeal laws. I mean, sure, Congress had no right to pass Obamacare in the first place, but unless you thought our next executive intended to tell Congress and the Courts to burn in hell, the failure of that bill was as predictable as the sunrise.

At first glance, it seems as though Trump, Ryan, and the other supporters of the bill insulted our intelligence by talking about doing it in phases. Without 60 votes in the Senate, they cannot pass anything that cannot be passed under reconciliation, so anything that couldn’t be passed in phase one would require major electoral victories for Republicans in the coming House and Senate races. Unfortunately every subhuman Democrat is on the verge of insurrection, and fairly unlikely to stay away from the polls in 2018 and 2020.

The Republican Party needs to do whatever it can to secure their foothold in the federal government, or we might never recover. So while I sympathize with Rand Paul, Justin Amash, and the “Freedom Caucus” on a lot of things, I’m anxiously awaiting the announcement of their plan to accomplish something other than obstructing the President. We can quibble all we want about how “moderates” should be the ones caving in to the demands of our obviously better ideas, but unless we’re going to chuck them out of helicopters and appoint their replacements non-democratically, the math is not on our side here.

I have no problem referring to the American Health Care Act as “Obamacare Lite” because that’s what it is. It’s just shuffling around the wealth redistribution mechanism a little bit. It’s not a repudiation of the “healthcare is a right” narrative. It completely fails to acknowledge that insurance is supposed to be a financial loss by default. It is exactly what we should expect from a guy like Paul Ryan.

On the other hand, it dramatically cuts taxes on the wealthy, and if they don’t donate those savings to the success of the Republican Party, I’ll gladly join you in calling for their taxes to be increased again. Perhaps more importantly, it defunded Planned Parenthood to the tune of nearly half a billion dollars a year. Taking subsidies away from the nation’s largest abortion clinic, and giving that money back to the people who earned it, seems like a really good way to Make America Great Again.

Defunding Planned Parenthood should have been the headline about that bill. There is no number of future Democrats that Planned Parenthood could have killed in the womb, to make up for the number of Democrats they have made out of white women with their political propaganda. That money would be far better spent in the hands of the Koch Brothers, and Donald Trump’s wealthy friends, than in the hands of Cecile Richards.

It’s a fine thing to have principles. It’s good to deal peaceably and honestly with people who deal with you in the same fashion. It is suicide to adopt the principles of your rivals as your standard of virtue, and to adhere to them even while your rivals do not.

The constitution will not save America, and the only evidence we need of that is the newspaper of any given place on any given day. Ideas can only survive so long as the people who believe in them do, and anyone who believes in freedom had better stop checking the history books for cute ways to talk about ancient documents, and start thinking of creative ways to destroy our enemies before they destroy us.

And speaking of people with misguided ideas about freedom, Ian Freeman joins me in studio today to discuss sanctuary cities. He thinks they’re a great idea, and as you might have gathered, I disagree.

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 show about common sense extremism where we talk about radical, crazy, off the wall things like principles.

Radical Agenda EP282 – Sanctuary

Christopher Cantwell - Wed, 2017-03-29 18:49 +0000

It recently came to my attention, that Eli Rivera, the Sheriff for Cheshire County, New Hampshire (where I reside), stated that he would not cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). He even went so far as to say “If you are an undocumented person in Cheshire County and feel uncertain about approaching law enforcement for fear they will turned you over to ICE, feel free to call me, Sheriff Eli Rivera.”

Radical Agenda EP282 – Sanctuary

This comes as Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced he would be stripping billions in federal funding from so called “sanctuary” cities, and states.  That seems reasonable enough to me, seeing as to how you and I go to prison when we break the law, the least the federal government can do is stop subsidizing other criminal activity.

The move is less than likely to have any real impact. Cheshire County isn’t exactly the premier destination for the brown plague of illegal immigration, yet. It does however point to a very serious problem in New Hampshire and elsewhere, of government officials completely ignoring not only the law, but the facts. Making your jurisdiction a safe haven for lawbreakers, hasn’t exactly resulted in plummeting crime rates in places that have already taken such measures. Democrats and those law enforcement personnel unfortunate enough to find themselves under leftist leadership, keep telling us this is so illegal immigrants can feel comfortable reporting crimes. Unfortunately, illegal immigrants are usually hesitant to report crimes because they are entirely too frequently the ones committing them. Even when they aren’t the culprits, cooperating with the justice system of the country you’re invading isn’t usually top of the priorities list for waves of hostile foreigners trying to end the white race.

What is more troubling is libertarian reaction to the announcement. FreeKeene.com celebrated the news, calling Rivera “heroic”. It is apparently lost on Ian and his ilk, that selectively enforcing laws is hardly a victory for freedom. Granting one group of people the de facto right to break the law while the rest of the population is held to compelled to comply with more laws than anyone could ever hope to memorize, makes royalty out of invading foreigners while turning native born residents into second class citizens.

New Hampshire has maintained a standard of living and appreciation for freedom seen quite rarely throughout the rest of the world. Whether anyone wants to admit it or not, that is largely because our population is roughly 96% white as of the last census. Sheriff Rivera isn’t trying to advance liberty or protect human dignity by inviting illegal immigrants into Cheshire County, he’s trying to destroy our way of life.

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

I’m still banned from YouTube and Facebook, so we’ll only be on UStream and TuneIn today.

So join us, this and evey 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 sanctuary cities.

Struck

Christopher Cantwell - Mon, 2017-03-27 18:10 +0000

UPDATE: I ended the show early today. And what was recorded really isn’t worth uploading.

YouTube doesn’t seem to have a problem with Rebel Media advocating white genocide. The Jewish owned Canadian Cuckservative media company hired a subhuman to strawman whites who want a homeland, and that video still stands. My response to that attack, on the other hand, has been permanently removed from YouTube. Not only that, but I’ve received a “community guidelines strike” against my account, which disables my ability to livestream to YouTube for three months.

Radical Agenda EP282 – Struck

I appealed the decision, and the the reply came back in less time than it would take to watch the video. It was denied, and I have no further recourse. So until the end of June, there will be no Radical Agenda live stream on YouTube. Since YouTube, like all other media companies, is meeting increased pressure from governments to remove anything that disagrees with the prevailing egalitarian narratives, we can expect the entire channel will be removed before long.

We need independent platforms that are not controlled by our enemies. That’s part of the reason I’ve been working so hard to build up my revenues. So we can have an independent platform which does not rely on Google, Facebook, Twitter, and other left wing organizations that back down to public pressure from communist governments. That requires money, and if we can’t raise the money, then we might as well just give up now and stop struggling.

There are lots of talented content producers out there who need help with the technical, business, and administrative tasks that come with running a successful production. We don’t each need our own business and technical teams, though. If I can put the infrastructure in place, we can recruit and build a content network, based on our own independent platform. Each producer can use Facebook/YouTube etc for promotional purposes, but we’ll all be operating on a stable platform not subject to the whims of changing public opinion. I’ve already begun talking to people and estimating the costs, and the goals are absolutely achievable. But we need your help.

Please consider signing up for a premium membership today, donating, buying merchandise, or shopping through my affiliate links.

I’m also still banned from Facebook, so there won’t be any stream there either. I’ll be airing on Ustream and TuneIn today only.

Carla Howell’s Keynote from LPNH 2017 Convention

Free Keene - Mon, 2017-03-27 16:49 +0000

Carla Howell is the political director for the national libertarian party and a long time Massachusetts libertarian activist. If you’ve been in the libertarian party in the last three decades, you’re probably familiar with her. She was the keynote speaker at this year’s Libertarian Party of New Hampshire convention in Concord. Here’s her speech:

Cheshire Sheriff Heroically Nullifies Immigration Enforcers, Creating NH’s Only Sanctuary County!

Free Keene - Sun, 2017-03-26 21:01 +0000

Sheriff Eli Rivera

Cheshire County Sheriff Eli Rivera has been making headlines this week for his compassionate stance against working with federal immigration enforcers. Rivera, a longtime fixture in the community and multi-term sheriff, announced via his website last week:

After taking some time to reflect on this current issue, as Sheriff, I’ve decided that the Cheshire County Sheriff’s Office will not seek to enter into an agreement with the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE) to enforce federal immigrations laws. Furthermore, we will not participate in raids, stings or operations that are solely intended at locating an undocumented person or persons. Any representative of ICE requesting our assistance must have an active criminal warrant issued by a judge or must be actively pursuing a criminal investigation that relates to public safety for us to participate.

It’s a welcome policy in a place where being brown or black makes one stick out like a sore thumb, given the population here in Cheshire County is about 96% white.

According to the Sentinel’s report on Rivera’s announcement Keene Police’s acting chief, Steve Russo has yet to comment on the issue, but his late predecessor Brian Costa‘s position was similar to Rivera’s, saying, “We have no interest going forward, nor do we have the resources for deputizing our officers as part of ICE to go out and seek illegal or undocumented immigrants…We govern ourselves by our mission statement”, which says KPD is “to protect life and property and to maintain order within the City while assuring fair and respectful treatment of everyone.”

Costa said of that mission statement in his interview with the Sentinel earlier this month, prior to his untimely passing, “It’s not just a group of words…It’s how we do business.”

KPD’s Late Chief Brian Costa

It sounds like Sheriff Rivera is on the same page as Costa. In his excellent statement, Rivera continues:

In addition, we will not ask a person their immigration status or detain a person based on an administrative civil detainer that is not issued by a judge. As Sheriff, I do not want undocumented immigrants to fear the Sheriff’s Office, instead I want them to be able to approach and speak to any of my deputies without the fear that they will be turned over to ICE. If in the course of our duties we happen to come across an undocumented person we will handle each encounter in a way we deem appropriate for each situation…

 

If you are an undocumented person in Cheshire County and feel uncertain about approaching law enforcement for fear they will turned you over to ICE, feel free to call me, Sheriff Eli Rivera, at the Cheshire County Sheriff’s Office.

According to the WMUR report on Rivera’s policy, some control-freak politicians are butthurt over this. Good. Unlike those cowardly politicians, kudos to Rivera for having the courage to do the right thing and truly protect the people of Cheshire county from the evil hands of the federal government. It would be better of course if Rivera would also stop cooperating with the feds on other victimless crime enforcement, like the insane War on Drugs, but this is a BIG step in the right direction.

I’m glad to live in a place where law enforcement acts more human, more often, than anywhere else I’ve ever been. You’ve got Rick Van Wickler, Cheshire County’s jail superintendent who is also a longtime speaker at Law Enforcement Action Partnership, a compassionate group of mostly former police which you may remember as being previously called, “Law Enforcement Against Prohibition” until they expanded their mission to include other issues where police reform is badly needed,  Van Wickler has been a constant presence in Concord at state house hearings about drug legalization, speaking strongly in favor of any efforts to end prohibition in New Hampshire.  He also runs his jail much more compassionately than the supermajority of the others in the United States.  Add to that, a relatively calm and approachable group of Keene police, and now this excellent news from Sheriff Rivera.

Thank you, Eli. You’ve earned my vote in the next election. The land known as Cheshire county in the Shire should be a sanctuary for all peaceful people. Your immigration policy helps us get closer to that ideal. Next step, NH seceding from the United States! Viva New Hampshire!

Free State Project President Matt Philips Speaks to Libertarian Party of NH Convention

Free Keene - Sun, 2017-03-26 19:16 +0000

FSP President Matt Philips Addresses the LPNH 2017 Convention

I interviewed Free State Project president Matt Philips at Anarchapulco on my show Free Talk Live last month and some people didn’t understand it. After all, they say, the FSP kicked me out of their events last year and Matt was on the board of directors. Further, he was one of those who voted I be booted from Porcfest and Liberty Forum, so why should I be so kind as to interview him on my nationally syndicated talk radio show?

On the other hand, a different group of critics say that my recent article about the hypocrisy of the Free State Project board regarding their selection of John McAfee as the headliner for Porcfest is proof that I’m holding a grudge over being booted from their events.

Both groups are upset – the people who hate the FSP and the people who blindly carry water for the FSP. So, why would I give the FSP free publicity but also criticize them?

Uh, that’s what I’ve always done. For long before I (and my show) was kicked out of the FSP events I had held their feet to the fire on a multitude of occasions when I though their board made an ill-advised or hypocritical decision. The Snowden recording controversy from 2016 was the most recent one prior to my removal. There were other instances, but a review of the “Free State Project” category on this site reveals what the bulk of my posts have been – puff pieces for the FSP, for more than a decade.

Most of the time, the FSP is doing good work – encouraging liberty people to move to New Hampshire and get active. Every now and then their board will do something dumb and they’ve been called on it by me, other Free Keene bloggers, or a fellow Free Talk Live talk show host. I don’t take what they did to me personally and I don’t hold a grudge. I do allocate my airtime mostly to promoting the Shire Society rather than the FSP, as I believe it to be a superior migration movement since it’s decentralized and has no board, but on my radio show when we are discussing why people are moving to New Hampshire, I still mention the FSP as one of the active migrations here.

If I were holding a grudge, why did I interview FSP president Matt Philips at Anarchapulco about what the FSP has been up to since they reached their goal of 20,000 participants? Regardless of the haters, the FSP and the Shire Society are competing towards recruiting libertarians, voluntarists, and liberty-loving anarchists to uproot their lives and move to New Hampshire. I’m not letting some petty haters within the liberty community get in the way of that goal, which I still share with the FSP.

Further, practicing forgiveness doesn’t mean avoiding holding the forgiven accountable in the future. With only love in my heart, here’s the video of FSP president Matt Philips addressing the Libertarian Party of New Hampshire‘s 2017 convention in Concord:

Libertarian Jilletta Jarvis Announces Campaign for NH Governor in 2018!

Free Keene - Sat, 2017-03-25 18:23 +0000

Libertarian Party of New Hampshire secretary Jilletta Jarvis officially announced her run for governor in 2018 at last weekend’s LPNH convention in Concord! Here’s her first campaign speech as delivered to the convention where she discusses ending prohibition of cannabis, lowering taxes, ending DUI checkpoints, ending civil asset forfeiture, and supporting state rights. She promises, “As governor of New Hampshire, I would never sign a bill that took away freedoms from New Hampshire citizens.”

Last year, the Libertarian Party of NH achieved major party status for the first time in two decades, meaning our ballot access is finally equal to the big two parties. That means LP candidates can easily qualify for the ballot just by paying the same fee the other two parties do, rather than having to slave away and throw thousands of dollars at collecting petition signatures. The LPNH is already recruiting candidates for statewide races in 2018, so be sure to get involved!

Radical Agenda EP280 – Mr. Speaker

Christopher Cantwell - Fri, 2017-03-24 18:58 +0000

Today at 3:30pm the US House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on a bill to “repeal and replace” the Affordable Care Act, aka ObamaCare. Whatever the outcome of the vote, the president is being sabotaged by Paul Ryan and other (((moderate))) Republicans.

Radical Agenda EP280 – Mr. Speaker

Even with the tweaks made in effort to appease conservatives, the proposed measure will do little to alleviate the catastrophic and predictable consequences of the current law. As long as the federal government compels insurance companies to cover so called “pre-existing conditions” it is impossible to have a private health insurance industry without massive government subsidies. That of course, was the entire purpose of the ACA in the first place. Democrats set out to destroy the private healthcare market, with the intent of nationalizing it when costs became so high that nobody could afford it. That collapse is upon us, and whatever token effort the GOP makes to mitigate the damage, they will be bailing out Democrats at the expense of the President.

Any purported plan to have a second and third phase of the process will be sabotaged by this fact. In order to pass more meaningful reforms, the GOP will need to gain at least 8 seats in the Senate, and since most Senate Republicans might as well be Democrats, we would realistically need a lot more than that. This is going to be impossible when the liberal media is fed millions of disaffected sick people who lost their insurance subsidies. Every problem resulting from the passage of this bill will have blame placed directly on the shoulders of President Trump and congressional Republicans. Every resource at the disposal of the Democrat party and other leftist institutions will be poured into focusing on the perceived negative consequences of its passage, and barely any Democrats will miss the opportunity to show up at the voting booth in 2018 and 2020 to make their dissatisfaction known. In short, the passage of this bill will directly result in the loss of Republican political power, rendering impossible any attempt to pass greater reforms in the future.

Rand Paul seems to be about the only voice of reason on the subject, even if his reasoning is a tad off. He suggests passing a bill to repeal Obamacare, to the extent such a thing can be done through the reconciliation process, bypassing the need for 60 votes in the Senate. He then suggests a replacement bill should be voted on the same day, and he seems to mistakenly believe this will result in a more conservative outcome.

The advantage of passing the repeal separately from the replacement is not that it will result in a more conservative outcome, but rather that it will compel the cooperation of Democrats. If Obamacare is repealed outright, with no replacement at all, I predict that some number of Democrats would be willing to vote with moderate Republicans on a replacement plan that keeps such measures as the purpose defeating compulsory coverage of “pre-existing conditions”.

That cooperation will serve as fuel for primary challenges against congressional Republicans who would sooner vote with Democrats than their fellow Republicans to the right. It also gives the impression of bipartisan support, which some Americans are stupid enough to believe is a positive. More importantly, it will mitigate the blame Republicans take for the fallout, thereby preserving some chance of obtaining greater majorities in the next two elections.

I for one have a difficult time believing that any of this is lost on Paul Ryan. He is sabotaging the Trump administration on purpose, the same way he did when he called Trump’s comments about a La Raza member “the definition of a racist comment”. For Ryan, this vote is a win-win. Either the bill will pass, and its disastrous consequences will be blamed on the president, or the bill will fail and the President will look weak. The only thing Paul Ryan has to avoid in order to accomplish his goals, is something that actually improves the conditions of the American economy.

Our only hope is that President Trump is already aware of this on some level. One could imagine a shrewd negotiator like Donald Trump feigning ignorance and playing the sucker right now, as a longer term strategy to purge the GOP of saboteurs like Ryan at a later date. If Ryan tanks healthcare reform now, few would blame the President for financing a primary challenger in 2018, and we can all but guarantee a new Speaker of the House as Ryan’s last shreds of credibility fade from the minds of the public.

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

Cop Block Founder Ademo Freeman Is Out of Jail After Major Bail Reduction!

Free Keene - Thu, 2017-03-23 15:29 +0000

Several weeks after his roadside arrest for possession and trafficking of cannabis in Warren County, Ohio, Cop Block founder Ademo Freeman is out of jail! He announced the exciting news on last night’s Free Talk Live (click to listen to his call) that his bail had been reduced from $75,000 to $5,000, he’s finally been indicted, and one of his felony charges for possession was dropped. He is now facing two felonies, but the early charge removal and recent plea deal offer suggest that the prosecution does not want to take this matter to trial.

Now that he’s out of jail on bond, he’ll be able to better prepare for his trial, unless they offer him an even better plea deal, which he has indicated he’d be willing to negotiate. Stay tuned here to Free Keene for the latest.

Also, this excellent article was written by Ademo while in jail. Sounds like he’s had a major paradigm shift to peace, as I once did. Right on, brother.

Free Keene - Wed, 2017-03-22 18:08 +0000

Recently, NH state representative Caleb Dyer made history by switching to the Libertarian Party, making him the only sitting state rep nationwide who is an LP member. So of course, he had to be a featured speaker at this year’s Libertarian Party of New Hampshire convention! Here’s the video of his speech:

Radical Agenda EP279 – Clipzkrieg

Christopher Cantwell - Wed, 2017-03-22 04:31 +0000

It’s just before midnight on Tuesday, and I’m preparing to head back to Keene tomorrow. I hope to be in my studio in time for Wednesday’s show, but I’m beginning to realize it is possible that this won’t happen. So I’m going to do one of my impromptu off hours shows to free myself from that obligation momentarily. On another note, I can’t even log into my spare Facebook account now, so if you could spread this around I’d appreciate it.

Radical Agenda EP279 – Clipzkrieg

It should be a pretty easy one too, since I’ve got all of this great audio to go through from the intelligence committee hearings and Neil Gorsuch’s Senate confirmation hearings. These displays are perhaps some of the greatest examples of liberal contempt for truth and the rule of law in American history.

Take the example of Al Franken grilling Neil Gorsuch about his ruling in a case where a trucker got fired for abandoning his trailer in freezing weather. Gorsuch correctly concluded that there was nothing illegal about the company firing their employee for violating their policies, even if those polices might seem disagreeable to communists like Al Franken. What the law actually says, of course, matters not to Democrats. Leftists, though they love to operate the levers of the State, are anti-authority, and anti-order. The only reason they love the government so much, is because it gives them the power to break the laws the rest of us are compelled to obey.

Tucker Carlson later took on Joe Dinkin of the Working Families Party. If you’re not already aware, the “Working Families Party” has nothing to do with work or families. Instead, they’re a group of welfare recipients who hate marriage. Mr. Dinkin predictably had no knowledge or opinion about the law whatsoever. He just said that Gorsuch was a white supremacist and corporate puppet because he usually rules in favor of property owners, instead of people using the courts to steal from them.

The Senate Intelligence Committee also met with NSA director Michael Rogers and FBI director James Comey to discuss the ridiculous narrative that Donald Trump colluded with the Russian government to steal the presidency of the United States, as well as Trump’s far more credible allegation that Obama had “wiretapped” him. Comey and Rogers both said they had zero evidence of either, but the Democrats and their media propagandists only seem to find the lack of evidence concerning on one of these stories.

Plus of course, your calls at 747-234-2254 or RadicalAgenda on Skype.

Join us for this special early Wednesday episode of the Radical Agenda at 1:00am Eastern. It’s a show about common sense extremism where we talk about radical, crazy, off the wall things like evidence, and the rule of law.

New Jersey Libertarian Can’t Explain Why He Still Lives There

Free Keene - Tue, 2017-03-21 17:32 +0000

This year, for the first time in the over a decade since I’ve lived here, the Libertarian Party of New Hampshire put on a real convention. Previous years have been a couple dozen libertarians sitting around a table, with 10% or fewer of the attendees being female. Since principled libertarians Darryl W Perry and Rodger Paxton took over the party’s executive committee in unanimous votes at a special convention late last year, party membership has doubled. Not only was the turnout excellent, with over 70 registered for this year’s convention, but there were more female attendees than I’ve ever seen at a Libertarian Party event.

The venue was the Concord Holiday Inn which was quite nice and spacious compared to last year when we were crammed around a table in the corner of a bar. Jilletta Jarvis, former independent candidate for governor and current secretary of the LPNH did an excellent job organizing the convention. It included a silent auction, multiple speakers, the requisite business session, and social time including a fancy dinner. I had the honor of being the event videographer and videos from the event will be coming out this week on the Free Keene YouTube channel, chronologically.

The opening speaker was the representative for this region of the country on the Libertarian National Committee, Patrick McKnight. After Darryl teased him in his introduction about leaving New Jersey for New Hampshire, McKnight admitted in his speech, “I know personally a lot of people who have left New Jersey and moved here and are like, ‘Why are you still there?’ and I’m like, well, I don’t really know!”. Here’s the video of McKnight’s speech:

Are you like McKnight? Still living in one of the more tyrannical states in the union? It’s time to start planning your escape to join the largest migration of liberty-oriented activists in the world. New Hampshire is already the freest state and will only get better as more libertarians, voluntarists, and liberty-loving anarchists move here and get active.

Cop Block Founder Ademo Freeman Offered Plea Deal Before Indictment

Free Keene - Mon, 2017-03-20 19:27 +0000

Ademo Freeman in Warren County Jail

In February, Cop Block founder Ademo Freeman was arrested in Warren County, Ohio after a questionable roadside search of the car he was driving, on multiple felony counts of possession of and intent to distribute cannabis. Saturday night, he called from jail into my talk radio show, Free Talk Live, to update us on the situation.

Amazingly, he’s already been offered a one year prison term plea deal, despite the fact that the grand jury has yet to even return an indictment! Now, it’s highly likely that they will hand down an indictment, but regardless – it’s pretty clear that the prosecution doesn’t want to have to take this to trial. While Ademo had said previously he’d accept a plea of six months (he’s already done one awaiting trial), it doesn’t sound like he’s willing to take the year deal without having seen discovery or even the indictment. Otherwise, he’s doing alright in the jail. You can listen to the full interview here – the link jumps you straight to that part of our Saturday show.

Ademo would love to hear from you. Here’s the address at which you can send him mail. Sorry, the backwards-ass jail in Warren County won’t let you send him books.

Radical Agenda EP278 – Auction

Christopher Cantwell - Mon, 2017-03-20 18:03 +0000

Seems like everything is up for sale these days. Nothing is sacred, really. The correlation between who spends the most on a campaign, and who wins an election is staggering. The same corporations regulators claim to be keeping in check, often end up in control of those regulatory agencies, shaping regulations to suit their purposes while suppressing competition. The list of things that money can buy could obviously get longer than anyone would be interested in listening to, but you get the idea. Nothing is above the influence of money, and anything that claims to be, is probably trying to do something extra nefarious.

Radical Agenda EP278 – Auction

About the only thing you’re not allowed to buy and sell these days is human beings. Long gone are the good ole days when you just purchased laborers up front. Today, you have to buy the labor from the laborers (who are often too stupid to negotiate price), and there are an ever increasing number of backwards rules making that more difficult by the day.

So it should come as no surprise that some desire a return to the older, simpler model of the labor market. If that is our purpose, then what better place to start than at a historically black university?

Well that’s just what an unnamed white professor at Howard University attempted to do, sorta. The professor was reportedly teaching a lesson on Frederick Douglass’ slave narrative, and during the course of it he asked one of two black men in the class to step forward and become the prize of a mock slave auction. He reportedly asked the black student to stand up because he looked “healthy” and “like the type of slave buyers would look for.” Even more shocking was the student said he was asked to “turn around so we can see your buttocks” so the class could get a better sense of how much he was worth. That is when he said the class spoke up in disgust and he sat down.

The professor evaluated the young bull’s auction value at $400.

Now, I can understand the sensitivity involved in these matters. For a long time, human beings have tried to accept blacks as part of the team, and no matter how many times they prove this impossible, everyone just keeps on trying. We can dance around the emotional toll of the whole thing all we want, but the dollars are what make sense. Purchasing a black man for $400 and owning him until you dispose of him is obviously a far better investment than subsidizing their breeding in housing projects for the benefit of the Democrat party. Entirely too many of these wannabe people are consuming more than $400 in food stamps each month, not including housing subsidies, free cash, and other government goodies. We went from a time when you could purchase one outright for $400, and he did whatever you told him to do until he was dead, to a time when we throw multiple times this much at them on a monthly basis and they do nothing but commit crimes and demand more freebies.

No wonder it made the black student uncomfortable. Once you start trying to balance the books, the answer to our economic problems becomes rather obvious. Problems always hate being identified because they know it is only a matter of time before they are eliminated.

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 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 deregulating the labor market.

Hypocritical Free State Project Invites John McAfee to Headline Porcfest 2017

Free Keene - Sun, 2017-03-19 13:00 +0000

John McAfee, Porcfest Headliner & Ephebophile

A few weeks after winning their first-ever “Liberty in Action” achievement award for “Spreading the Message”, as popularly voted on by Free State Project members, the FSP’s unelected board of directors banned me and my talk radio show, from attending FSP events like Porcfest. (An event I helped sponsor and promote for many years.)

As a result, while I did tender my resignation from the FSP, I still encouraged people to attend Porcfest both on my radio show and via a blog post at Free Keene.

Now, one year later, the FSP has announced that John McAfee will be headlining Porcfest 2017. John’s a great guy and I had the pleasure of interviewing him last year at the D10E conference in San Francisco. He would have been a great pick for the OLD Porcfest. You know, the once-great Summer libertarian camping festival with open cannabis use, unlicensed food sales, and Buzz’ Big Gay Dance Parties?

Last year that festival became “family friendly”, after years of prudish libertarians complaining about drug use and occasional female toplessness. To kick off the changes, I was banned from the FSP events because of my libertarian views on age of consent, according to their press release. It’s commonly known that my most recent girlfriend was a later-teenager and this supposedly infuriated key volunteers within the FSP, leading to my ouster.

Did you know that John McAfee was in his late 50s when he had a 16 year old girlfriend? According to the same WIRED article, at age 66, one of his multiple live-in girlfriends was 17! Surely plenty of men secretly wish they could do the same, while outwardly condemning John for his attraction to young women.

Have you signed the Shire Society Declaration yet?

To be clear, I don’t want John to get banned from Porcfest, nor do I have any interest in being part of the FSP. I just want to point out the glaring, laughable hypocrisy. People who love liberty should probably still attend Porcfest, but it’s getting harder to recommend that, given that the event length this year has been chopped in half but the price hasn’t lowered one bit.

Plus, Porcfest now has a more-principled competitor, SomaliaFest, which is set to happen June 16th-20th, at Rogers Campground. That’s right before Porcfest, which is slated for June 21st-25th at the same campground. Unlike today’s Porcfest, but more like Porcfest from the old days, SomaliaFest has no entrance fee. Attendees can just camp, vend, hang out with cool liberty folk, and self-organize whatever they want. SomaliaFest sounds like a good time, and much more market-driven than the now-centrally-controlled Porcfest.

Schisms are healthy and a natural part of a growing movement. We have the world’s largest concentration of liberty-loving people here in New Hampshire. It’s inevitable that there will be disagreements and splits. This isn’t the first, and won’t be the last.

Thank goodness we have two active movements competing to attract libertarians, voluntarists, and liberty-loving anarchists to New Hampshire. There’s the FSP with their contradictory and confused board, swayed by the political winds and contributors… and there’s the Shire Society, which has no board – only a declaration set in stone and signed in real life (at Porcfest!) back in 2010. Since then, countless people have signed the Shire Society declaration online and in real life, many of whom have since moved to New Hampshire.

Maybe someone who can attend Porcfest should present John McAfee with a printed copy of the Shire Society declaration and see if he’ll sign on. Unlike many of the haters in the FSP, I don’t judge him for his preferences, so long as everyone’s consenting. Here’s a hilarious video where John snorts bath salts while in a near-orgy with multiple women. Maybe he should be at SomaliaFest instead?
