Radical Agenda EP328 – Cultural Incompetence

Christopher Cantwell - Wed, 2017-07-12 18:46 +0000

The good news is, leftists have finally admitted that this influx of migrants they think is so wonderful, will never assimilate to our culture. The bad news is, that won’t stop them from trying to import these savages, because they want our culture destroyed.

Radical Agenda EP328 – Cultural Incompetence

We’ve talked a few times, about how our judicial system seems to be letting invaders, rapists in particular, off the hook. Whether you’re a developmentally disabled 5 year old girl in Idaho, a 14 year girl old in a Maryland High School, a college student from Massachusetts, an anally raped Swedish teen, or a young mother of three from the United Kingdom, you can count on your rapist going free as long as he doesn’t speak the language of the country properly.

You might think I’m oversimplifying here, but I’m not. In Sweden, an Iraqi migrant anally raped a 14 year old, on Facebook Live video while she screamed “No!” on camera. He was literally released under the auspices that he did not understand this lack of consent. The Hovrätten (royal court) of Western Sweden said the Iraqi, who had former convictions, had “suspected ADHD,” which, according to the court, gave him “difficulties in interpreting and interacting with other people as well as recognizing the standards he is expected to live up to.”

Now if you live in America, you might be thinking to yourself “Those dumb Swedes! Good thing we’re not as stupid as them!” but you would be wrong again. A 33 year old Congolese immigrant named Augustin Bahati, escaped prosecution on six domestic-violence crimes when his lawyer convinced a city prosecutor that he lacked the cultural competency to participate in the American justice system, according to court and public records reviewed by the New Hampshire Union Leader. Apparently it is one of those outdated ideas of the whitecisheteropatriarchy that men are not supposed to be “striking, pushing, grabbing, kicking and pulling out the hair of a woman who was 27 weeks pregnant” (a description from one of the police reports).

Cultural incompetence, ladies and gentlemen. We are now expected to believe that a guy who was arrested six times for battering women, literally lacked the capacity to see the problem after arrest number 5. Of course, if you suggest that might be a reason to restrict immigration from places where certain “cultures” dominate, you’ll be called a racist, which is apparently a bigger problem than being called a rapist in America today. If you suggest this Congolian savage should have been kept in his hellhole with the rest of his subhuman kin, you’re a literal Nazi who deserves to be punched on television.

These people aren’t even trying anymore. After decades of brainwashing and unchecked immigration into America and Europe, the left has declared victory even while they are removed from power. As far as they’re concerned, white people are the enemy, and the war is almost over. They are just running around bayoneting the wounded at this point. Feel like raping or beating a woman? Just make sure she’s got blonde hair, blue eyes, and good credit, and you’ll be back on the street with your weaponized dick in no time.

If our governments will not protect our women, then the men of our society will. If that means we have to go to war with our own governments, then I would encourage the existing powers to check with the Brits on how well that worked out for them 242 years ago.

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 hunting rapists for sport.

Free Shipping Special Offer Today Only

Christopher Cantwell - Tue, 2017-07-11 13:58 +0000

I once found myself unable to host my show one day because I had found my XLR microphone cable to be faulty during one of my recent travels. So I set out to purchase a replacement. I drove nearly an hour to a Radio Shack, only to find out it was closed. Next, I tried a different store with a giant closing sign, hoping to get a deal, only to find the inside of the place looking as if it had been ransacked by a pack of wild animals, who as it happens are still in the store drinking grape soda, and eating cheese puffs. After that I went to a different store, where the store employee in the sound section looked at me like a deer in headlights when I asked him where to find the product in his store. He instead suggested a local guitar store, where I was finally able to purchase the product.

Free Shipping Special Offer Today Only

While that was an extreme example, it left me thinking about the time I could have saved by buying it online. Usually when I shop, I go to pick up a specific item or know the type of thing I am looking for, not to browse for whatever catches my eye, as I suspect most straight men also do. (I’m lying, I treat Walmarts like they are tourist attractions) When I am shopping, I want to avoid liberals in the wild, long lines and unknowledgeable salespeople which is not usually possible with America’s rapid demographic decline, and better use that time instead on my show, working on my physique, having intellectual conversations or whatever of the thousands of things I might do in a day.

I recently decided to sign up for a sort of promotion with one of my top affiliate programs. Their big annual sale is today, Tuesday, July 11, 2017 (though they start offering deals Monday night) and the sale is only available to current members of their service. They offer a free one-month trial, so besides the Christmas season, this is the best time to try out the service. [I would like to point out for my college listeners, if you have a working .edu email, you qualify for a free 6-month Student trial and half-off membership (It offers the same benefits as the regular one, plus a few student specific ones).]

The service offers unlimited free two day shipping (or one day or 2 HOUR shipping in select locations). If you don’t have the service, their free shipping can take a week or more. Service members are also able to buy sale items before the general public so you can get an item before it sells out. You can read about the other benefits on their website here.

It’s a place where you can find things that the liberals and chosen ones hate ranging from Ivanka Trump shoes to It’s the Jews Stupid!: Who and What These Evil Vipers Are! I enjoy that when you look at a product page, they recommend similar items based on what other customers bought and that they also include negative reviews, so if you are wondering if a product is cheaply made, people will have usually answered your question in the comment section.

Many of my listeners are already customers with the service, and I’ve been an affiliate with them for a while now. Sometimes people contact me to ask if I got my commission for a given purchase, and so long as it is unique enough I’ve been able to confirm the purchase every time. If you are not already doing so, please click on my affiliate link (which is also listed on my website’s shopping mall section), and click the top banner which takes you straight to the service’s homepage, where you can browse and shop. It helps me to keep the lights on here and it costs you nothing besides a few seconds to click on my link. I am hoping soon to host videos on my website, buy better equipment and your use of my link, greatly helps me towards those goals. Bookmark it (Bookmark it I said!) for future use as well.

[I also list links to other online shopping sites you are probably already familiar with on my website’s shopping mall section. If there is a website you frequent that you think I should be an affiliate of, feel free to send me an email.]

Thanks again for your continued support for helping to make Radical Agenda possible.

City Commits Civil Disobedience Against Feds By Painting Blue Line Down Marlboro St.

Free Keene - Mon, 2017-07-10 22:23 +0000

Keene Signals its Support for Secession by its Recent Peaceful Civil Disobedience

In case you aren’t aware, the police have their own gang symbol. It’s called the “thin blue line” – a blue line horizontally sandwiched between two black bars. You’ll frequently see it on the back of vehicles presumably containing police or their immediate relatives. Of course, anyone can buy these stickers now, so police have other ways of recognizing their own, like these family “professional courtesy” passbooks, but regardless, the blue line is still seen on their cars, their clothing, and now flags. It helps create the “us vs them” mentality that some police have. Worse still, some people insist on treating the police as though they are better than the rest of humanity. Their word is gold in court, they get special burials when mass calamity happens, deferential treatment in many of the crimes the corrupt officers commit, and more.

In a recent Keene Sentinel piece about multiple city councilors gushing over their recent decision to paint a horribly garish blue line down the middle of Marlboro St, local commenter Johnson Rice points out that the city is actually committing civil disobedience against the federal government:

This doesn’t look like the kind of thing a “peace officer” should be sporting.

Interesting that the city decided to violate the law outlined by the USDOT & FHA when they clearly warned a few towns in New Jersey that this practice is illegal in that it creates unsafe road conditions because motorists don’t know what this line means. It could result in lawsuits for the city if the unsafe condition results in any legitimate accidents or even “accidents” involving less scrupulous people.

Good for the City of Keene though for adopting that rebellious “Free Keene” spirit and willfully violating federal law.

I think the bright blue paint is ugly, distracting, and possibly dangerous to clueless drivers. The police get far too much worship as-is, for the job of a supposed “servant” and don’t need any more blind obeisance. (They aren’t all saints. Here’s a story about a local NH police chief who also was a child rapist for several years at least.)

All that said, while I don’t agree with the issue they chose, I do appreciate the city government’s embracing of peaceful civil disobedience. Maybe they’ll see the light that the federal government is a controlling, abusive spouse and start openly supporting secession next?

Doubtful, but this does point out that the law means nothing to the state & city when they wish to ignore it. Who can blame them? Statutes and codes are just words on paper written by strangers. They are opinions backed by guns. Thanks to their “thin blue line” of police, the political class is protected from having to follow their own rules, yet the rest of us are jailed for victimless crimes in ever-growing numbers.

It might make you wonder who the police are really there to “protect and serve“, hmm?

Radical Agenda EP327 – Have We Lost The Argument?

Christopher Cantwell - Mon, 2017-07-10 12:49 +0000

Imagine if you will, a funeral procession. Limousines and black clad people of all ages, exchanging memories of the dearly departed. Reason was his name, he left no children behind.

Radical Agenda EP327 – Have We Lost The Argument?

Half the people in the funeral parlor are half drunk off their pocket flasks, and outside there are a bunch of people who hated Reason so much, that they wouldn’t even permit a proper burial. They want him burned and desecrated, and his name destroyed for an eternity, and they’ll hurt innocent people to get what they want.

If you guessed this was a metaphor for something going on right now, you’re onto something. I got a message from a listener over the weekend which read “After being swarmed by antifa in New Haven I now understand why you refuse to go anywhere that won’t let you carry”. He further informed me that Augustus Invictus had to cancel his speech due to security concerns.

Connecticut, you might recall is home to one Sandy Hook Elementary School, the scene of a mass shooting that inspired new gun control laws to pass throughout the country. Suffice to say, they are not an open carry state, and they certainly do not reciprocate a New Hampshire Pistol/Revolver License.

You know where else you’re not allowed to carry a gun? Germany, where the G20 meetings were recently held. Outside, Luke Rudkoswki and another independent journalist were accused of being Nazis, and assaulted on the streets while police did nothing to stop it.

If anybody knows of a way to handle these problems verbally, I’m all ears. I’m starting to think the time for talk might be drawing to a close though. What discussion can I have with anyone, while my life is left in the hands of negroes and homosexuals who have already proven willing to illegally assault me, on camera, in front of hundreds of witnesses? Should I trust the judgement of such savages, for the reward of postponing a conflict? Call in and convince me that Western civilization is not on the brink of mass civil unrest, if not open warfare, 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 being disarmed by your government, only to be assaulted by the criminals such laws enable.

The Jail Paper Keene’s Video Interview of Free Keene Founder

Free Keene - Sun, 2017-07-09 12:00 +0000

Free Keene Founder Ian Freeman Interviewed by The Jail Paper Keene

New courtroom video/photo blog The Jail Paper Keene has been reporting from Keene’s district and superior courts recently, covering various criminal cases. This week, The Jail Paper Keene posted some of my mugshots and asked for comments on whether I am a hero or villain. Since I’ve been a longtime, publicly visible activist who has done a bunch over the decade plus I’ve been here in Keene, naturally some of the haters came around to post their uninformed vitriol.

I did my best to correct their misinformation and was amazed as some haters also attacked the Jail Paper Keene for even posting my photo to their page, accusing the page of being run by me or one of my supposed “puppets”. Their paranoia knows no bounds.

Today, I had the pleasure of meeting The Jail Paper Keene’s Thomas Parisi and he conducted an interview on my front porch. You can watch it here on The Jail Paper Keene’s facebook page.

Area Police Chief Sentenced to Decades in Prison for Multiple Rapes

Free Keene - Sat, 2017-07-08 21:38 +0000

Former Police Chief and Convicted Child Rapist Robert K Chambers Sr.

The reason why the government police can be so corrupt and violent is because they have a monopoly on violence. There’s no competition allowed in the marketplace. Worse, you’re forced to fund the police, even if they are doing things you disagree with, like arresting people for possession of cannabis, teens for alcohol, or committing multiple counts of rape against a child.

Area former police chief Robert K Chambers, Sr, who’d been the head of both the Gilsum and Marlow New Hampshire departments was recently convicted on several counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault and sentenced to decades in prison, according to the Keene Sentinel. Chambers is 65. Here’s video of the harrowing victim impact statement his victim made at Chambers’ sentencing, as published by The Jail Paper Keene, a new court videographer on facebook.

Many people mistakenly believe all Cop Blockers are against the police. The truth is, I’m not against the police. I’m in favor of when police protect people from real crime involving a victim. I have even assisted the police when they were investigating real crimes. However if police are arresting people for victimless crimes, I will oppose that. I’m a police accountability activist, which means holding the cops to their promise of doing good by reporting on the bad ones. The worst cops are those like Chambers, who are clearly people in search of power over others, as this recent despicable example sadly proves.

It’s of course, not the first time that NH’s top cops have been caught up in ugly news, revealing some of them as corrupt, power seekers. Don’t forget the New London, NH chief who allegedly coerced college girls to take nude photos in the police basement when they were arrested for some victimless crime or another. Or how about the Canterbury, NH chief who allegedly used his position of power to engage in sexual acts with a female teen police explorer? There’s the Haverhill, NH chief who resigned after being busted for DUI. Obviously not all chiefs are low-life hypocrites, but you have to wonder how many of them are corrupt. There’s no way to stop a corrupt officer from rising through the ranks of power, since if you withhold taxes in protest, the very same police will come and attack you and your family.

Manch Cops Unnecessarily Intimidate Innocent People in Search for Suspect

Obviously Chambers is the lowest of the low – a now-convicted child rapist who also has previous murder allegations hanging in his past. However, as long as the state exists, power-seeking psychopaths like Chambers will continue to wield as much as they can, undetected for decades, if ever. Until taxes are made voluntary, there is no way for people to do anything more significant than continue to uncover, publicize, and complain about corruption.

Luckily, there’s an ongoing NH Freedom Migration where liberty-minded, peace-loving people are moving to New Hampshire and working to reduce the government here. Perhaps someday the state’s violent monopoly will be ended and the market will finally be able to provide important services like protection, where competition and the ability to say “no” to a bad company’s product or service will raise quality, service, and lower price. That will result in better protection services, provided by those seeking customer satisfaction rather than power.

If you are libertarian of voluntarist, especially if you’re interested in police accountability, here are 101 Reasons Why Liberty Lives in New Hampshire, and why thousands of people who think like you are migrating here, ASAP.

Radical Agenda EP326 – New Low

Christopher Cantwell - Wed, 2017-07-05 18:10 +0000

Here at the Radical Agenda, we’ve learned the hard way never to overestimate the dignity of leftists. Whenever you think they have done the most despicable thing possible, just wait 24 hours and they will prove you wrong quite reliably.

Radical Agenda EP326 – New Low

It has really gotten to a point where nobody event finds it surprising, much less alarming when the media gets caught lying these days. Their “lie big, retract small” strategy is why savages still roam the streets saying “hands up don’t shoot” while rioting and setting buildings on fire. I don’t even think most of their viewers believe this Russia nonsense anymore.

Trying to violently topple a duly elected President, and blatantly lying about whatever they dreamed up the night before has become normalized. We don’t even expect them to tell the truth anymore. Generally however, we don’t expect them to track down meme makers online and threaten to dox them on one of the largest cable news networks in America.

That’s exactly what CNN just did though. CNN targeted Reddit user HanAssholeSolo because he took credit for a meme posted by President Donald Trump. A  meme in which a scene from a World Wrestling Entertainment skit featuring Trump had CNN’s logo superimposed on the face of someone Trump skillfully beat the tar out of. If they had left it alone, everybody would have forgotten about it in 24 hours, but the liberal media wanted their pound of flesh.

Communists everywhere insisted this retweeted gif was an open call to start lynching lügenpresse agents on sight. They flooded wires and airwaves with hyperbole that made the Radical Agenda look like NPR. Rather than dissuading Trump’s army of shitposters however, it predictably resulted in the mass proliferation of violent anti-CNN and Pro-Trump memes, many of which were well catalogued by Mike Cernovich.

Like any prepubescent child, CNN threw a temper tantrum over the ridicule. They tracked down the original meme maker on reddit. They found out his other posts had what they described as “racist and anti-Semitic imagery”. They found out his true identity, and then they blackmailed him into removing all his prior posts and promising never to do it again. If he does, CNN says they reserve the right to publicize his true identity, and destroy his life.

If the election coverage hadn’t proven beyond a doubt that these networks are little more than propaganda factories, perhaps people will stop taking their journalism credentials seriously now that they are literally doxxing reddit users for making fun of them online. They insist that Trump’s tweet was inciting violence against journalists, but when journalists decide to go interfering with the lives of private citizens, we all know who to blame when someone gets hurt.

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 the lügenpresse.

Cantwell on RedIce.TV 07/2017

Christopher Cantwell - Wed, 2017-07-05 14:04 +0000

I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Henrik from RedIce.tv (perhaps better known as Red Ice Radio). Headquartered in Sweden and North America, Red Ice Radio is a talk radio program hosted by Henrik Palmgren, predominately focusing on issues concerning European survival. Henrik interviews authors, researchers and commentators two times per week. The second hour is only available to Red Ice premium members. The show is independent, commercial free and supported by members, available on demand directly from redice.tv. Red Ice members also have access to a filmed version of selected interviews.

The Left is Waging War

It was a lively show covering a number of important topics. After catching up, we dive into more serious matters. We discuss the ongoing political polarization taking place in America, I remind the audience that the Left is waging war, while many on the Right are under the naive impression that civil discourse will solve things. Later, we discuss political violence, libertarianism, and mass immigration. The first hour concludes with me offering my thoughts on the Alt-Lite.

In the members’ hour, I begin by telling the Henrik about my trip to the recent Bilderberg conference. This leads to a discussion on (((influence))), which, as you’ll need no reminder, is a very suppressed issue. Switching gears, we then talk about Europe’s demographic plight. I predict a backlash among immigrant populations if and when the welfare stops flowing. The members’ hour explores much more, including the 2016 election, mainstream media, and the importance of self-improvement.

Check it out on RedIce.TV or catch the first hour in the YouTube embed below.

Bitcoin fees are WAY down! What happened, and why is virtually no one talking about it?

Free Keene - Tue, 2017-07-04 23:00 +0000

Charlie Shrem, COO of Jaxx, stumbled onto the lower fees, he told Free Talk Live.

I saw the headline in Coin Telegraph and couldn’t believe it: “Bitcoin Transaction Fees Significantly Decrease, Charlie Shrem Pays $0.25 Fee”. Even though I know and trust Charlie Shrem, I still thought this news was a fluke.

For those who haven’t been following the ugly geek war happening behind the scenes of Bitcoin, here’s a recap, oversimplifying a complex situation:

As little as two years ago, Bitcoin’s median transaction fee was as low as $0.02 worth of bitcoin. That means half of all bitcoin transaction fees cost less than $0.02 and the other half cost over $0.02.
With Bitcoin, there are fees to send, not receive. (This is the reverse of credit cards, where the merchant pays a fee to receive.) In the past, if one wanted, one could send bitcoin with no fee and it would go through, just without any priority. As you can see from this chart, the median transaction fee has shot up mostly in the last six months or so, and it has risen has high as $3.00 worth of bitcoin!

That means that had I wanted, in the last few months, to go buy a $2.00 drink at Corner News with bitcoin here on Main Street in Keene, NH, it might cost me $3 just to send the $2, making it a $5 drink! No sane customer would pay a crazy fee like that. This dramatic rise in fees has destroyed bitcoin’s previous usefulness for microtransactions. No more bitcoin-operated snack machines, no more using bitcoin for small online tips, no more Watch-my-Bit micro-donation video streaming service.

Century-Old Main St. Icon Corner News, Accepting Bitcoin Since 2013

As someone who, as part of the Keene Bitcoin Network, has put a lot of effort into helping Keene be the the number one city for bitcoin-accepting businesses per capita in the world, the skyrocketing fees on bitcoin were quite disheartening. It wasn’t just me, many of the Keene Bitcoin Network had been desperately looking at the competitors to bitcoin like DASH and Ethereum as possible alternatives for the Keene-area businesses who had been early bitcoin adopters.

It was getting harder and harder, due to the rising fees, to want to spend and promote bitcoin. Bitcoin is essentially broken for small dollar uses, meaning it’s far less useful as an actual currency, which is what it was intended to be. Sadly, there is a group of bitcoiners who want Bitcoin to be damaged in this way, and they somehow believe it will stay on top of the world’s hundreds of cryptocurrencies, though it’s been losing its market dominance over the last several months, as the competing cryptocurrencies have been rising to meet the consumer demand for a fast, low-fee crypto, like Bitcoin once was.

Percentage of Total Cryptocurrency Market Capitalization –
Bitcoin Dropping Precipitously as Others Rise

Behind the scenes of bitcoin, things have been very ugly for a couple of years now. Like so many things in life involving groups of people, Bitcoin’s supporters are going through a schism. Unlike the schisms involving religion or politics, where people can just go their separate ways and do what they want, the Bitcoin schism involves people’s money – about 42 BILLION dollars worth, at the moment of this article’s writing. Combine that with the fact that almost everyone involved can hide behind their computer screen, and you can imagine how ugly this has gotten on the various forums, reddits, social media, and such.

Technically, the schism revolves around how to solve the growing pains that Bitcoin has been experiencing. The reason the fees have shot up is because the Bitcoin network is full of transactions and people sending the transactions are bidding up the fee prices to ensure their transactions get priority. Bitcoin has become so popular worldwide that the “blocks” are full. The blocks are what create the “blockchain”, which is the decentralized, distributed, immutable ledger that is the guts of the Bitcoin network. The blocks are “mined” onto the blockchain by powerful computers doing very complex math.

As I understand it, and I’m not a Bitcoin programmer, when the blocks are full, all the lower-fee transactions that didn’t make it into a block go into the “mempool”, where they have been piling up in large quantity. That means that not only have Bitcoin’s fees been super-high, but also that transactions with lower-than-the-median fees can get stuck, sometimes for DAYS. Bitcoin, despite its amazingly high price (over $2,500 at this moment), is pretty busted compared to how it was.

Bitcoin Mempool – Last 60 Days

That brings us to this recent surprising development. As the Coin Telegraph article about Charlie Shrem sending his recent transaction with a surprisingly low $0.25 fee explains, the mempool has recently become less-clogged, dramatically so. This handy chart from Blockchain.info puts it in perspective. The Coin Telegraph article, which was published several days ago now, screwed up the numbers – they said the mempool had dropped from a high of 120 GB to around 20 GB. According to the chart, it’s MB, not GB, but otherwise, they are correct! The mempool has indeed dropped to below 20 MB, which means transactions are finally able to get through in a faster amount of time for lower fees! In fact, yesterday at one point the mempool was nearly down to 2 MB!

At Sunday’s meetup of the Keene Bitcoin Network at Rick’s Ice Cream, we put the claims of low fees to the test. Darryl pulled up his Airbitz wallet and sent me $1.00 worth of bitcoin. The recommended fee from Airbitz’ calculations was $0.01! Unbelievable, right? Recommended fees have been as high as $1.50-$3.00 in recent weeks, but sure enough, his transaction went through and was confirmed in under four minutes! Don’t believe it? I couldn’t either, but here it is on the blockchain. See for yourself. I then sent $1.00 worth of bitcoin to Darryl with my Airbitz wallet, and it recommended a $0.08 fee. Again, confirmed in under four minutes! (Bitcoin transactions can be seen on the network usually immediately after they are sent, but they “confirm” after being included in a block. They then keep getting more confirmations after that.)

Keene Bitcoin Network Meetup at Rick’s Ice Cream Last Weekend

Later that night, when re-stocking the Manchester Bitcoin Vending Machine, I sent some similarly low-fee transactions as what Darryl and I had sent earlier, but these took about two hours to get their first confirmation. So, I tried one for approx $0.28 worth of bitcoin and it confirmed in 12 minutes. While $0.28 isn’t as good as $0.02, it’s a major improvement on $2.80 fees. To be clear, we’re not out of the woods yet. Bitcoin is still backlogged, but there are some supposed fixes coming to Bitcoin in the next few months that should reduce the fees even further.

There are two very important questions, first, which bitcoin wallet software is working properly and recommending the new, lower fees and which ones are still recommending the higher fees?

According to our testing, Airbitz and Blockchain.info’s wallets are working correctly, recommending saner fees, while Mycelium and Jaxx are still making very high fee recommendations. We had Jaxx’s Chief Operating Officer, the very same Charlie Shrem, on my talk radio show, “Free Talk Live” on Sunday night to talk about the new, lower-fees and if Jaxx will be updating their wallet to reflect it. Since we did not do an exhaustive check of the wallet software available, please feel free to post the normal recommended fee levels from your wallet(s) in the comments.

Today’s recommended fees are higher than Sunday’s. As I am writing this on Independence Day afternoon, Airbitz recommended a $0.47 fee to send, then it recommended $0.70 for a subsequent transaction. Perhaps this respite from insane fees will be short lived, but for now $0.47-$0.70 still feels a lot better than $2.50. The fact is, due to the mempool decrease that happened over the last month, bitcoin is now cheaper and faster than in recent months. However, the second important question is why did the mempool decrease as much as it has, when it did?

Satoshi Nakamoto, Anonymous Creator of Bitcoin

This question leads into conspiracy territory, because there’s probably no way to really know why the mempool dropped by over 100 MB in approximately one month’s time. However, it’s very interesting that the beginning of the drop coincided with the “New York Agreement” (Segwit2x). At the end of May, people representing some major bitcoin companies and 83% of the mining power in the Bitcoin world came together at a conference and after years of debate finally hammered out an agreement to implement both of the competing proposals to fix Bitcoin’s network capacity issues. It was shortly after this agreement that the mempool size began to fall. Why? Some have suggested that the Bitcoin network was being spammed with junk transactions and that whoever was spamming it, ceased after the agreement was put in place. That’s obviously speculation, but if it’s true, then who was doing the spamming? Was it the people supporting small blocks? The people supporting large blocks? Both of them? Heck, was it Satoshi Nakamoto, the anonymous and disappeared-for-years creator of Bitcoin? Who knows, but I hope whoever it was doesn’t start it up again. Whoever it was, was willing to spend a good amount of money doing it, as it has gone on for weeks, if that’s indeed what happened.

Confirmed Bitcoin Transactions Per Day, Last 60 Days

Others have said that it wasn’t the cessation of spamming, but that it was just the market choosing to use other cryptocurrency. On its face, this seems like the more reasonable explanation, given the high fees would drive away all the small dollar transactions from Bitcoin and into the arms of the eager, low-fee competitors like DASH. Indeed, when looking at a chart of confirmed bitcoin transactions per day, there is a decline over the last month, though not as drastic as the decline on the mempool chart.

I’m not a Bitcoin engineer or statistician, so I’m sure there are various interpretations and other charts to look at. However, if the explanation is that people all of a sudden started dropping off of spending bitcoin, then why did that drop happen so consistently over the last month, but not prior, when fees were equally as bad for quite a while? Why did the drop coincide with the New York Agreement? Obviously, correlation is not causation, but the coincidence is remarkable.

NH #1 Most Free State, #1 for Cryptocurrency

Whatever the reason for the decline in the mempool, the fees are down, and that’s a fact. Another amazing thing is that hardly anyone is talking about it. Though Coin Telegraph did run their piece on June 30th, since then there has been no explosion of news across the cryptocurrency industry. To me, this is one of the most important bitcoin stories of the year-so-far. Please share the good news!

The next question is what will happen in the Segwit2x/UASF controversy set to possibly boil over on August 1st? That’s a subject for a separate, somewhat more technical article. A quick google will reveal a large variety of opinions on the subject.

If you’re a libertarian and lover of cryptocurrency, you really ought to move to New Hampshire as part of the NH Freedom Migration – the Bitcoin capitol of the world! If you want to connect with other cryptocurrency users already here in NH, please check out the Shire Bitcoin Forums.

P.S. In case you were wondering why I used different capitalization for Bitcoin, it’s because as I understand it, “Bitcoin” refers to the Bitcoin network as a whole concept, while “bitcoin” is the currency aspect of it. Thanks for reading and sharing this article!

P.P.S. I’m posting this article first on Steemit. If you think this is much-needed good news for Bitcoin, as I do, please upvote it there (accounts are free), and share on social media.

Radical Agenda EP325 – Promoting Violence

Christopher Cantwell - Mon, 2017-07-03 18:57 +0000

Donald Trump tweeted a video clip from his stint with the Word Wrestling Federation. In it, he tackles and punches his opponent, but his opponent has the CNN logo superimposed over his face. Apparently this is more important than health care, foreign policy, immigration, and everything else because the media hasn’t seemed to discuss anything but that and this Russia nonsense ever since.

Radical Agenda EP325 – Promoting Violence

Trump stands accused of promoting violence against the press. My temptation is to say they are overreacting, and sum this up to a miscategorized joke. That would not be very much fun though, so let’s assume the fourth estate hasn’t completely lost their minds. Let us just say, that Donald Trump is trying to get the public to violently attack journalists.

Would this make him a bad person? I say no.

We spent the last 8 years watching these lying pieces of filth polish the prior turd in the White House trying to convince us he was doing a good job. This despite the fact that the number of Americans on food stamps is up nearly 36 percent, the federal debt has more than doubled, and the homeownership rate has dropped to the lowest point in more than 50 years. While Americans suffered at home, Obama went abroad apologizing for our decadence, giving away our wealth, negotiating with our enemies, opening up our borders, and sending our best men to die in senseless conflicts he had no intention of winning.

Now that somebody has come to clean up the mess, they are suddenly interested in scrutiny once again. Though perhaps I’m using the word scrutiny too loosely. Scrutiny would involve verifying the authenticity of sources, fact checking stories, including relevant information which harms the narrative of the reporter, and a basic desire to be honest more broadly. No, it is not scrutiny being paid to this president, it is espionage.

The leftist media is not a source of information, it is a hostile foreign entity inside our borders trying to upend what little political stability we have remaining. For all of this talk about how Russia tried to influence our elections by talking about them on RT (no other evidence has been provided of literally anything else) it is amazing how little attention is paid to the clear intent of the leftist American media trying to topple an elected president.

They made Black Lives Matter riots seem like some kind of noble cause, even as they committed arson and murder in support of violent criminals. They made Antifa gutter punks out to be freedom fighters, even as they smashed windows, set fires, and assaulted innocent people. After granting President Obama unlimited executive power, they suddenly become a bunch of strict constructionists the moment Donald Trump starts signing executive orders. They cheer loudly for judges who illegally, knowingly, and intentionally put the country at risk by saying the President could not protect the borders during wartime.

Perhaps I will care more about the words of Lysander Spooner if the Democrats take power again, but for now I am happy to say the leftist media is guilty of treason. No punishment is too harsh, no power used to stop them is too great a usurpation. If they were all dragged out of their homes along with their families, and tortured to death on the National Mall, I would break two months of alcohol abstinence and have a keg party to celebrate with my friends. They deserve to die, every last one of them. Donald Trump tolerates entirely too much dissent. If you’re going to be called a violence promoting fascist anyway, you might as well start executing enemy propagandists.

Bitcoin Capital of the World: New Hampshire

Free Keene - Sat, 2017-07-01 00:33 +0000

When most people think of New Hampshire, a few images come to mind: colorful trees, maple syrup, covered bridges, people with guns, and the great outdoors. They probably don’t think of high-tech cryptocurrency. But that’s changing, thanks to the great libertarian migration of the 21st century.

Anarchists and libertarians are moving en masse to escape oppressive political masters in their homelands to find peace and prosperity in tax-free, freedom-loving New Hampshire. With them, they are bringing their favorite freedom-enhancing technology: blockchain-based money.

Overstock.com reported that the day they started accepting bitcoin for payment, a third of all their orders came from New Hampshire. New Hampshire is only state that explicitly exempts crypto-currency businesses from requirements to register as money transmitters, attracting job-creating startups like Lamassu, LBRY, AnyPay, and more. No longer does Silicon Valley hold a monopoly on tech: the Swarm.City team could have launched from anywhere in the world, and they chose Portsmouth, New Hampshire. This week the Monadnock Shopper, a New Hamphire newspaper with 40,000 readers, published a front-page above-the-fold article about bitcoin and all the businesses in the area that accept it.

It can be hard to keep track of all the cryptocoin development happening in New Hampshire. That’s why David Jurist started Shire Cryptocoin, a website that tells you the closest businesses where you can buy and spend your cryptocoins, which ones they take, and when there are meetup groups in your area where you can learn and get your questions answered.

Shire Cryptocoin recently appeared at SomaliaFest 2017, and they were the best vendor there in my opinion, because they helped people get better money than what they had in their pockets. I used their service to trade bitcoin for litecoin, dash, and ethereum. I had a great experience, and I wanted to spread the word. Here’s a video I made about them:

Radical Agenda EP323 – Clenched Fist of Truth

Christopher Cantwell - Fri, 2017-06-30 19:51 +0000

You might find this hard to believe, but the liberals are upset with the NRA. A video advertisement the gun rights lobby group published in April, recently became the subject of leftist hysteria after being reposted to the organization’s Facebook page.

Radical Agenda EP323 – Clenched Fist of Truth

In it, Dana Loesch, an N.R.A. spokeswoman, says that the media, schools, and Hollywood elites are stirring up riots and protests amongst the left. The only answer to this “violence of lies” she says is the “closed fist of truth.”

They use their media to assassinate real news. They use their schools to teach children that their president is another Hitler. They use their movie stars and singers and comedy shows and award shows to repeat their narrative over and over again. And then they use their ex-president to endorse “the resistance.”

All to make them march. Make them protest. Make them scream racism and sexism and xenophobia and homophobia. To smash windows, burn cars, shut down interstates and airports, bully and terrorize the law-abiding — until the only option left is for the police to do their jobs and stop the madness.

Funny how she never seems to notice who runs the media, schools, and hollywood. What’s even funnier, is that when the video depicts the violence they show white kids smashing up DC on inauguration day, instead of the demographic that burns down pharmacies and pizzerias in support of violent criminals.

Despite this circus of politically correct refusal to address a problem, the left has still gone into full panic mode. DeRay Mckesson, a leader in the Black Lives Matter movement, tweeted that the ad was “an open call to violence to protect white supremacy.” Jon Favreau, a former speechwriter for President Obama, called the video “revolting and frightening.”

So much for that clenched fist of truth. The NRA purposely avoided saying what everyone right of John McCain already knows, and they still got called a bunch of violent white supremacists. It makes one question the value of maintaining this mirage of colorblindness so many white people feel is their obligation as a citizen.

We know exactly who the subversives are, and we know exactly who does the violence on their behalf. We know that we’ll be called racists whether we mention it or not, and yet we remain disarmed in the current discourse because we refuse to state the obvious.

This is our fight. As much as any ethnic power struggle, as much as any economic arrangement, as much as any foreign conflict, we are in a battle with ourselves and our own people over the ability to say what is true and obvious.

Aleksandr Isayevich Solzhenitsyn once said “Violence finds its only refuge in falsehood, falsehood its only support in violence. Any man who has once acclaimed violence as his METHOD must inexorably choose falsehood as his PRINCIPLE. At its birth violence acts openly and even with pride. But no sooner does it become strong, firmly established, than it senses the rarefaction of the air around it and it cannot continue to exist without descending into a fog of lies, clothing them in sweet talk. It does not always, not necessarily, openly throttle the throat, more often it demands from its subjects only an oath of allegiance to falsehood, only complicity in falsehood.”

We cannot lie our way to a more peaceful world. We cannot be co conspirators in the spreading of disinformation, without getting blood on our hands from the violence that inevitably follows. Nor can we be passive against lies, which are the precursor to inevitable violence. The only way we stop this, the only way we save our country, and our freedom, is to fight these liars with the same virtue and courage that allowed our people to conquer most of the planet.

We are the Right Wing Death Squads of the Radical Agenda, and we’re the truth’s safest place.

Give us your testimony 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. The gangster rap of conservative talk.

Bitcoin Hits Front Page of Monadnock Shopper News, Delivered to 40,000 Homes in Cheshire County!

Free Keene - Thu, 2017-06-29 02:55 +0000

Bitcoin Front Page Article Delivered to 40,000 Homes!

Since 1958 the Monadnock Shopper News has been connecting the people of this region with local businesses on a weekly basis. They deliver to over 40,000 households via postal mail – basically every home in Cheshire county. How exciting to see a feature article about local bitcoin-accepting businesses here in the Keene area as their headline, front cover story in this week’s issue!

The Shopper News’ reporter went to visit with Chris Rietmann, one of the proprietors of Route 101 Local Goods, a unique store featuring locall-sourced products that’s also where bitcoin (and other cryptocurrencies) can be spent, plus bitcoin can be purchased from the region’s only Bitcoin Vending Machine, and you can even buy delicious Vietnamese food from the “Bon Vivant Gourmet Street Food” truck parked just outside at 661 Marlboro Road in Keene.

Ed Forster of Little Zoe’s Take and Bake Pizza and Ken Urbanski of Kirby’s Q in Alstead were also interviewed in the front-page piece. The bitcoin-accepting business owners commented on their interest in Bitcoin while Rietmann explained important aspects of what makes Bitcoin special. Rietmann is frequently seen introducing new users to it in his shop, since his store has the Bitcoin Vending Machine which makes buying it a snap.

The article even lists a bunch of local businesses in the area (ranging from food to sports to car repair) that accept bitcoin! Keene, as you may already know, is the undisputed city with the most bitcoin-accepting businesses per capita, per coinmap.org.

You can read both pages of the Shopper’s feature article on bitcoin even if you don’t live in the area, by downloading this PDF.

Fight for the innocent mentally ill in prison - Speak at hearing June 29 on related rules

This is a terrible secret. The men’s prison in Concord houses a small number of mentally ill patients who have never been convicted of a crime. They are deemed too dangerous to live at the State Hospital, where they might hurt other patients. This difficult group does not belong at the prison either. Many cannot defend themselves from hardened criminals.

Radical Agenda EP322 – Pravdamericana

Christopher Cantwell - Wed, 2017-06-28 20:25 +0000

James O’Keefe of Project Veritas has once again exposed the mainstream media as little more than agenda driven propagandists. First releasing a tape of CNN medical producer John Bonifield saying the “Russia story” was complete BS being promoted for the sake of ratings. Then,  after CNN dismissed Bonfield’s speculations as irrelevant to the facts of the case, O’Keefe released another video of Van Jones saying the investigation was a “nothing burger”. This comes out on the heels of CNN retracting a story to avoid a $100 million lawsuit, and with Donna Brazile’s coordination with the Clinton campaign fresh in everyone’s minds.

Radical Agenda EP322 – Pravdamericana

If this is what goes on at CNN, a network that tries its best (and fails spectacularly) to appear neutral, you can just imagine what’s happening at MSNBC.

One of the first things that appealed to me about Trump early on was something Stefan Molyneux spotted before I did. He makes people hate the media. Like anyone right of Lindsay Graham,  I’ve always known the media had a severe left wing bias.  I had dramatically underestimated however, the depths to which they would sink to advance their agenda.

Watching their coverage of current events makes me feel like I’m wearing the glasses from “They Live!”. I see enemy propagandists stirring a populace to civil war, while the rest of the world sees only concerned journalists preserving the integrity of our institutions.

Suddenly however, I am not the only one who sees this. Others have the glasses too, and groups like Project Veritas and Judicial Watch are mass producing them for anyone who wants to have a peek.

I hesitate to say victory is inevitable, but I have a hard time imagining these deceptions working for much longer. Perhaps a new illusion will emerge, or perhaps we are about to extinguish the fire from which they conjure their smoke screens.

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

Jail Guards Caught Smuggling in Heroin, Impersonating Cops, Preventing Inmate Mail

Free Keene - Wed, 2017-06-28 17:48 +0000

You won’t believe this. Even I can’t believe it. I had to stop investigating this story because the rabbit hole of corruption was so deep that I lost sight of where it began. So let’s start at the end and work backwards…

Chris Brackett, the head of the jail in Dover, New Hampshire decided to impose a policy of obstructing all inmate mail. No more letters from the outside world. An article published by the Portsmouth Herald cites recent inmate overdoses as the potential justification for this excessively restrictive action.

There are two problems with that theory. First, the jail doesn’t allow packages of any sort, including birthday cards or anything other than ink and paper (at least, until last week’s new policy took effect). Second, it is policy for jail employees to physically open and check the contents of all inmate mail for any contraband and remove it before it reaches the inside. There is no way inmates were receiving heroin through ink and paper letters, and preventing their delivery will have no effect on inmate overdoses.

How are the overdoses happening? To find that answer, we need look no further than an article by the Portsmouth Herald from May in which one of the jail guards was caught bringing heroin into the housing unit of the jail. Case closed. It’s not the mail. It’s your employees.

Who’s in charge of hiring these top-notch individuals working at the Dover jail? Well, none other than Bruce Pelkie, the Superintendent of Strafford County Jails, who was himself arrested earlier this year on felony charges of impersonating an officer. Apparently while enjoying more than a year on paid vacation on taxpayer’s dime, Bruce thought it would be great fun to get his personal vehicle outfitted with red and blue police lights and pull people over. Is he a cop? No. Does he have the authority to pull anyone over? No. Then surely the local police would notice this happening and stop him? Nope. A State Trooper was finally the one to catch the Superintendent of the jails pulling people over in his personal car. And all while he is out on “administrative leave” for what he claims are medical reasons. Surely this means he loses his job, his pay, and the taxpayer-funded medical insurance he’s been collecting? Also no. The superintendent of the jails continues to receive paychecks for not doing his job, and committing crimes on the side.

There are countless more crimes and stories of corruption emanating from this public embarrassment of a facility — too many to list in this one article. I had no idea what a can of worms I’d be opening when I dug into the first story about jail guards obstructing inmate mail. Is this even legal? Should groups like the ACLU and prisoner’s rights groups file a lawsuit against Chris Brackett and the people who are obstructing mail delivery to inmates? Please share this article and video with your friends and family and ask them what they think. Building a free society depends on people like you to think, speak, and act — especially when it is easier to do nothing.
