Big Change to "Declare Your Independence" on LRN.FM

June 11th, 2021 - 4:54pm by FTL_Ian in

Big news: Today was the last day of the live production of "Declare Your Independence" . Don't worry, Ernest Hancock won't be leaving LRN.FM and his show will be staying put on weekday mornings. However, what *is* changing is that he'll no longer be doing a live show.

There are a few reasons for this:

First, Ernie has over the last year been producing his show from the road as he is traveling the country in an RV. This is good in that it will allow him to talk to more guests in-person, but the down side is he is relying on mobile internet connections which vary from okay to terrible when it comes to live audio delivery.

Second, by recording his show as a podcast he'll have more flexibility on when he can record his interviews. Since Ernie never took callers on his live show, whether it is produced live or not really doesn't matter.

Third, it means he can go commercial-free and do a...

Long Overdue

June 7th, 2021 - 5:15pm by Aria DiMezzo in

Well, it's been nearly 3 months since the raid on the Free Talk Live studio, and, as you might imagine, we've all been pretty busy. Until very recently, Ian Freeman was still detained; Nobody (also known as Rich Paul) remains in detention, with a hearing pending.

Ian is now free, but under very tight restrictions. In fact, all of the Crypto Six are under pretty tight restrictions, although, luckily, the restrictions on myself seem to be the least limiting. My supervisory officer has proven to be very fair.

Free Talk Live was back to operating in some sort of normal capacity, but then Ian was released, and everything crashed. The terms of release prohibit Ian and I have from having contact with one another. Seeing as we've both become critical to the back-end of Free Talk Live, you can imagine how this made things difficult. While we have filed motions to amend these conditions (because it's silly for my conditions to demand me...

VIDEO: Mask-Free Flash Mob Visits Monadnock Co-Op, Encountering Angry Double-Masked Men, Keene Police

March 15th, 2021 - 3:57pm by FTL_Ian in

This weekend a couple dozen free-faced activists gathered from across New Hampshire at the Monadnock Co-Op in Downtown Keene for a “mask-free flash mob” event. Approximately a dozen of those gathered entered the store and attempted to shop. Why the Co-Op? Organizer Frank “Footloose” Staples said that it was due to the large number of reports of store staff and customers being very unfriendly to people with medical exemptions from wearing masks. One woman even wrote a letter to the editor of the Keene Sentinel about her difficult experience at the Co-Op.

True to form, some customers were downright hostile, including a younger man – wearing two masks – who told a young woman with a baby to “get the hell out of here”, then yelled something similar at me outside the store, despite the fact that I had...

FTL is live streaming again in HD on YouTube and Facebook - until they take us down!

March 1st, 2021 - 1:06am by FTL_Admin in

We recently announced the various ways we're decentralizing and cutting reliance on Big Tech. We launched our own social network last month. Our video archives are on the uncensorable LBRY . We launched our own federated, self-hosted, open source Matrix chat server , and more is to come.

We're even experimenting with peer-to-peer video streaming but it's not-quite-ready for primetime. Meanwhile, thanks to a tool called "Mobcrush", we are now to get around the pain-in-the ass hoops that YouTube and Facebook have placed in front of regular live streamers like us. As of tonight we are going to be streaming video not only on DLive and Twitch as normal,...

YouTube Bans “White Rose Society” Video; Watch it on Odysee / LBRY!

February 25th, 2021 - 3:10pm by FTL_Ian in

Recently, I outlined how we are decentralizing as many things as we can with the goal of removing any reliance on Big Tech. One of the things we’ve been doing in recent years is syncing all our Youtube videos over to LBRY , the blockchain-based, decentralized, uncensorable media protocol.

In 2019 LBRY first protected us from the YouTube censors when they took down “Hippie VS NAZI” , a debate between Rich Paul and Christopher Cantwell.

Now, YouTube has struck again and banned a video some amazing editor made about...

Pho Keene Great is now accepting cryptocurrencies!

Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies have been on a major run up in recent months, but a bunch of Keene-area businesses were ahead of the curve. A variety of locally owned establishments jumped onboard with NH-based crypto payments processor Anypay in 2020 including Keene Barber, YOLO, Pho Keene Great, and the brand-new Mighty Moose Mart. Thus far, in 2021 Rogue Taxi and Lucky 7s Bar and Grille have begun accepting cryptocurrency.

Porcupine Day 2021 Speeches Include Founders of LBRY & Reopen NH, FSP Executive Director, and Porcfest Organizer

February 16th, 2021 - 10:57pm by FTL_Ian in

Porcupine Day is the day the Free State Project reached its goal of 20,000 signers of their pledge to migrate to New Hampshire as a liberty activist.

The original Porcupine Day was in February 2016 , which marked the beginning of the FSP’s five-year-long moving window. February 2021 marks the close of that window. However, the Free State Project will not be shutting down and is instead going to continue recruiting more liberty-minded people to make the move to the Shire.

I attended the event and recorded the various speakers. Four full speeches appear below.

First up, Jeremy Kauffman, the founder of LBRY and current member of the Free State Project’s board of directors made a couple of proposals to those watching.

VIDEO: Keene Parking Bureaucrat Admits She Prefers to Avoid Court With Activists

February 12th, 2021 - 3:36pm by FTL_Ian in

The Shire Free Church recently received notice from a debt collector claiming we owed the “City of Keene” $60 for an unpaid parking ticket. I knew this could not be the case since I challenge every ticket on behalf of the Church and demand a trial and every time – these days – they drop the charge rather than go to court over a $10 ticket.

So, I headed down to city hall this week to find out why a collections notice had been sent . I was pleased to hear the bureaucrat report that she “likes it that way” when we aren’t in court with them.

It’s a validation of the activist approach of challenging all tickets. Be such a burden to the system that they have to drop your charges. If only more people would do this, then more charges would be dropped! If you’re in New Hampshire and you receive a ticket for anything at all, try demanding your trial and see what happens!...
