Benton & Tate Indicted
Jesse Benton and John Tate have been indicted on charges of violating campaign finance laws during Ron Paul’s 2012 presidential campaign.

Both are now heading up America’s Liberty, a super PAC supporting Rand Paul’s 2016 bid for the White House. Also indicted was Dimitri Kesari, Deputy National Campaign Manager for the Ron Paul 2012 campaign. The Washington Post reports; The indictment charges the

My New Bitcoin Pitch

My New Bitcoin Pitch
I just finished the last day of Bitcoin outreach at the Cheshire County fair just outside of Keene, New Hampshire. The event is a great opportunity to talk to people about Bitcoin, and Bitcoin provides a great opportunity to discuss a great many other topics. I try to work in as much propaganda into my bit as possible, and came up with the following pitch. As people walk by, I ask them if they like money. This evokes a lot

Chatting & Chalking with Keene Police

Yesterday was “Chalk The Police Day” an event put on by my friends at CopBlock.org. Activists from around the country went out to write and draw various messages relating to police accountability with chalk. The event dates back to 2011, where the “Chalking 8” were arrested in Manchester, New Hampshire on graffiti and criminal mischief charges. Since then, it has spawned an annual and national event that has become quite popular. Kelly Patterson of Nevada Cop Block has an excellent post

Bernie Sanders Is The Most Dangerous Man In America

Bernie Sanders Is The Most Dangerous Man In America

I’ve never feared for my safety quite like I did yesterday. I have been beaten, kidnapped, and shot at before. I’ve had my gun pointed at a man’s chest when police showed up. I’ve live streamed a riot where drunken lunatics flipped cars and screamed “Fuck the press!”. I’ve been involved in some pretty precarious situations, but none were ever quite so frightening as watching 73 year old Bernie Sanders whip hundreds of radical leftists into a frenzy yesterday in Keene,

Critiques of My Self Defense Incident Refuted

Critiques of my Self Defense Incident Refuted
I have remarked before, that it’s sort of my job to be hated. I’d venture to say I’ve become quite good at this. So whenever I draw a great deal of attention to myself, there is obviously a certain expectation of negative feedback. Often, this is intentional. I am saying controversial things that I know will get people into angry conversations, I do this for promotional reasons, and to get people discussing important topics, so it is not at all

I Almost Killed Somebody Last Night

I Almost Killed Someone Last Night
Recently, there have been some thefts at my friend Ian’s house. So I have been taking it upon myself to sit on his porch at night in an effort to catch the crooks in the act. Last night I was there until around 3am, and on my way home, I heard women crying, and men yelling at them on Main Street in Keene New Hampshire. I approached them with my camera phone recording the scene. There were two men, and two

Anarcho-Lobbyist vs. Police Militarization – Round 2

Anarcho-Lobbyist vs. Police Militarization
“Thanks but no Tanks!” That was the slogan adopted when the Keene, NH police department sought to get their hands on a Lenco Bearcat. It was the first major pushback in the country against police militarization. The armored personnel carrier largely sits collecting dust today, because despite much hysteria in the media, there is no crime to speak of in this city, much less terrorism. Later, the Concord police department submitted a grant request with the Department of Homelands Security

Left, Right, and Liberty – Revisited

Left, Right, and Liberty - Revisited
Let’s face facts, libertarians. We’re outnumbered, dramatically. As a minority ruled by a democratically elected government, this presents a serious problem for us. We’re over here hopping from one foot to the next, tackling issues from a certain perspective, while the witless oblivious masses are electing rulers who smash liberty to smithereens from all directions. This obviously brings with it the temptation to make certain alliances with ideologues and moderates from different camps. Most notably, this will come in the form of

I Rejoined The Libertarian Party

I Rejoined The Libertarian Party
As regular readers might recall, the Libertarian Party was one of my first stops when I started to become very interested in liberty. It wasn’t much of an organization. Just a dozen or so activists staring down the collective barrell of the guns of the State, not entirely sure what to do about it. This was back in New York, a place where even the Republicans want to raise taxes and grab guns, so however small and ineffective the party may have

Anarcho-Lobbyist vs. Minimum Wage

Anarcho-Lobbyist vs Minimum Wage
New Hampshire has no minimum wage, save for that dictated to us by the Federal Government. A bill before the New Hampshire legislature would change that, making our minimum wage $16/hour. That’s higher than the current highest in the US, which is San Francisco’s at $15/hour. Several other bills make more moderate proposals. I went to the state capitol to confront the legislature, because as long as there is a minimum wage, it will always be simultaneously too high, and
