The Power of Cop Blocking With Large Numbers of People

Large Group Copblocks DUI Checkpoint in Manchester, NH

Large Group Copblocks DUI Checkpoint in Manchester, NH

As one of the original copblockers (badge #5), I’ve been in the streets a lot over the years. I’ve helped save people from harassment by the police on countless occasions, informed thousands of young people about their rights, and have been arrested several times.

There’s no doubt that a couple of dedicated copblockers can make an impact out there. I’ve seen that happen. However, have you ever hit the streets with a dozen people on your side?

I’d bet you haven’t. We just don’t have...

FTL Hosts Return from TALKERS Convention :: New AMP Badge on FTL Forum!

June 4th, 2017 - 6:58pm by FTL_Admin in

Mark and I got back this weekend from the TALKERS Magazine yearly convention in New York City. Thanks as always to those awesome listeners who AMP the show for as little as $5 a month for sending us there - it was our twelfth year attending! The pic is me, the Amazing Kreskin, and Mark.

Coming soon, we'll have some cool news about the AMP program! For now, I'm experimenting with a feature on the NEW Free Talk Live forum . The new, modern forum software we're running, Discourse, allows for groups to be created of forum users, complete with a graphical badge. Right now our FTL AMPlifiers qualify for the badge - so if you want one, please sign up for AMP (and get a bunch of other cool perks) for $5 a...

Announcing our Global Satellite Feed Patreon!

May 28th, 2017 - 5:19pm by FTL_Admin in

After a recent discussion with the AMPlifiers on the AMP-only facebook group about the budget for the program, it was determined that LRN.FM's international satellite feeds should be broken out into its own fundraiser and refocus the AMP program exclusively on Free Talk Live. If you think broadcasting the ideas of liberty to other countries 24/7 is a good project, please kick in at least $2 month and share our Patreon in places you feel appropriate.

Also, some of you wanted the opportunity to buy an autographed DVD copy of Derrick J's Victimless Crime Spree. You can now do that with cryptocurrency here !

We'll be announcing some new iedas for the AMP program soon. If you want to support Free Talk Live's continued expansion in the United States, please join the AMP program for at little...

Celebrating Bitcoin Pizza Day + Makerspace, Golf Course, Jiu Jitsu Businesses Now Accepting Bitcoin in Keene!

May 25th, 2017 - 11:14pm by FTL_Ian in

On May 22nd of 2010, a computer programmer made the first recorded real-life bitcoin purchase – two pizzas for 10,000 bitcoin. Now, seven years later, 10,000 bitcoin is now worth about 25 million US dollars! To celebrate “Bitcoin Pizza Day”, eight Keene-area bitcoiners met up Monday afternoon at Little Zoe’s Take and Bake Pizza (Keene’s bitcoin-accepting pizzeria !) and ordered up several pizzas. We chatted with owner Ed Forster while he prepared the pizzas that we would later take to the Think Penguin headquarters, bake, and enjoy. Conversation included discussion of the recent meteoric rise in bitcoin price (over $2,200 per BTC on “Bitcoin Pizza Day” to now over $2,600 three days later as I write this)...

FTL Moves Up to #29 on TALKERS' "Heavy Hundred" :: AMP Update

May 23rd, 2017 - 2:40am by FTL_Admin in

Since 2010, we've been honored to have been included in TALKERS Magazine's "Heavy Hundred" , the yearly list of what they call the "most important radio talk show hosts in America". This year, we move up from #31 to #29. Thanks TALKERS and thank you, dear listener, for supporting and sharing Free Talk Live, and especially those of you who have contacted your local talk radio stations about Free Talk Live .

Of course we couldn't have grown as we have without our Free Talk Live AMPlifiers . Last week, I sent an email about the AMP program slowing dropping more members than it has gained each week. That resulted in a blast of signups from new and former AMPlifiers! Thank you! As a result of the outpouring of support, AMP has reversed direction and we are now at $2,975 per month. We also received some good suggestions and I...
