Libertarian NH Boogaloo Boys Demonstrate Outside NH State House

American mainstream news media has been reporting this weekend on the massive buildups of armed government goons at state houses across the United States. Expecting massive armed demonstrations of Boogaloo supporters, some of the state gangs locked down their capitol areas completely while others, like New Hampshire, took it easy and only had state troopers parked around and walking the state house property in pairs. By comparison, the New...

VIDEO: NH Rifleman Knows His Rights, Refuses to Talk to Concord Police

January 17th, 2021 - 5:20pm by FTL_Ian in

Back in mid-December I’d attended the final “stop the steal” rally in Concord to do some secssion outreach. The series of rallies by this time had basically died off, so Concord police decided to show up for the first time ever and targeted the lone man with a rifle. According to the muffled cop, someone – probably from Massachusetts – had called in a report of the man, who was entirely within his rights to bear arms in New Hampshire and the two masked agents of the state responded.

After asking if he could get down from the bench on which he was standing, the man refused their invitation to talk and after confirming he was not being arrested, turned around and wisely ignored the uniformed gang members. Meanwhile I began peppering the lead agent with questions and then Nobody started in as well. Within a minute, they take off. That’s what you call a Cop Block!

Free Talk Live Launches Telegram Discussion Group!

January 17th, 2021 - 5:12pm by FTL_Admin in

In a recent article at Free Keene , I went over a bunch of our decentralized and polycentric, self-hosted alternatives to Big Tech social media. If you didn't read it and you're interested in what alternatives are available, you should take a few minutes and check it out .

In the article, Telegram got an honorable mention for being the best of the centralized communications options out there. We've been using it between activists in the Keene area for most of the last decade and over the past few years we've been posting our show prep to our Telegram channel . Recently, Telegram upgraded its channels - which are a one-way communication method - to allow channel owners to create and...

With Forums, Chat, and Social Media, Shire Society Shields Users from Big Tech

More than a decade ago, Facebook was still growing into the social media behemoth they are today. If you were around back then, you remember when it was actually useful for reaching friends across the world and keeping-in-touch.

There was a time, for instance, when you could create an event on Facebook and click an “invite all” box to invite all your friends to the event. Super handy! Every friend received an invite in their inbox and could make the choice to attend or not. The previous activist method...

FTL Launches Social Network, Doubles Down on Decentralization

January 12th, 2021 - 10:06pm by FTL_Admin in

Big Tech is a big problem. The centralization of power has predictable consequences and we've been recommending alternatives to the existing social media megacorporations for years now on-the-air on Free Talk Live . However, we're definitely not perfect at it ourselves, so we're doubling down on decentralization - more on that in a moment. I recommend you consider doing the same, for as long as you are on systems run by Apple, Google, Amazon, Facebook, Twitter and various other state-worshiping companies, you are at risk for a takedown.

At Free Talk Live , we're big supporters of free speech and so today I'm happy to announce "FTL Social" - our social network that runs on our own server, where you can speak your mind without a Big Tech overlord holding an axe over your head. While "FTL Social" is still...

Tonight, New Year’s Eve, while government goons are threatening people and telling them to stay home, over one hundred revelers are together in a secret venue in the Keene area for “QUARANKEENE Space Disco”!

Featuring multiple live DJs, delicious food, good times, and all donations at the door will be given to the NH Liberty Defense Fund .

VIDEO: Dozens of Cops Ticket Candlelight Vigil, Arrest One in Front of NH Governor’s House

December 31st, 2020 - 10:25am by FTL_Ian in

Last week, the town selectmen of Newfields, NH illegally passed an unconstitutional ban on “picketing” outside residences. Monday evening, approximately two dozen state troopers were sent to crack down on a peaceful candlelight vigil outside “HIS EXCELLENCY” King Chris Sununu’s house. Here’s the insane footage , edited from multiple sources thanks to Vincent of Shire Free Media :

The video is a revealing look at how blatantly police will violate any kind of supposedly constitutional protections. There’s no penalty for them or the town selectmen for the illegal ordinance and enforcement. No one gets fired if they lose in court or have to pay any sort of price for their violations.

Also, observe how the cops are constantly telling the activists what to do: Don’t stand there, you have to move. You can’t move there. You with the cane, you’re getting a ticket for not moving fast...
