DUI Checkpoint Activism + College Know-Your-Rights Outreach

November 20th, 2017 - 6:01pm by FTL_Ian in

Recently I wrote the eulogy for Cop Block , the national police accountability activist news website. Nothing lasts forever, especially in the world of activism, where doing the right thing rarely means one can make a living at it. Burnout is real and has happened to some of the brightest activists to ever hit the Cop Block scene.

Cop Block as a national organization may have died, but it’s not dead here in New Hampshire, where it was incubated – according to founder Pete Eyre – in Keene.

Though regular Cop Blocking patrols are more rare these days and more likely to happen in Keene than anywhere else, large numbers of activists still participate in the ongoing DUI...

Lots of FTL media appearances

November 18th, 2017 - 1:45pm by FTL_Admin in

In case you missed it, within the last week I had two mainstream media appearances here in NH , one of which mentions Free Talk Live. Plus, Dave Ridley posted a video lauding Free Talk Live for its accuracy .

Plus our co-host Will Coley has made mainstream media in NH with the potential attack against him and his soon-to-open mosque from the City of Keene gang .

Finally, it's not too late for you to get $2 worth of free Bitcoin Cash by posting to this thread on the new FTL forum .

Thanks for listening to and supporting FTL (like by AMPing the show for $5 a month ) Ian

Imam Accused of Being Drunk by City of Keene Bureaucrat!

November 12th, 2017 - 7:00am by FTL_Ian in

Will Coley, Imam of the soon-to-open MALIC Center in Keene , NH recently made the mistake of asking permission to put up a sign for the mosque he’s opening in Keene. Realizing that asking for permission only gives bureaucrats reasons to create hoops to jump and fees to pay, Will went in to inform them he intends to move ahead with or without their permission slip, per the freedom of speech and religion.

During the interaction one particularly rude bureaucrat insults me and then issues an even bigger insult to Will, as a Muslim. She actually asserts that he smells of alcohol, a ridiculous claim, given it’s been over a decade since he’s drank any. Here’s the full video of his interactions with authoritarian bureaucrats on Thursday afternoon:

Bitcoin Not Forking Again After All? Good Riddance to Segwit2X! Long Live Bitcoin Cash!

November 8th, 2017 - 7:02pm by FTL_Ian in

It's not-so-civil.

Is the Bitcoin geek war finally over, or just getting started?

After months of buildup, fighting, and controversy, the potential forkers of Bitcoin have blinked. Thankfully, they’ve called off their plans to cause a potentially damaging and very contentious schism to the Bitcoin network. Today, several of the “Segwit2X” developers...
