Our Twitch Crosses 300 Followers!

May 19th, 2018 - 10:34am by FTL_Ian in

This January, due to YouTube cutting our live feed for some Terms-of-Service violation they wouldn't specify, we switched our main stream to the gaming video streaming platform, Twitch . Not only are we now streaming in 720p HD quality, but now we've crossed the 300 mark for "followers" on the Twitch platform! If you're there, check out our channel at http://twitch.lrn.fm and give us a follow - if you're following the channel and notifications are turned on, you can either receive an email or notice on your phone if you have the Twitch app installed, whenever we go live! That's pretty handy.

Plus, if you are an Amazon Prime subscriber, you get one free Twitch "subscription" per month you can use. If you haven't used it on another channel already, please assign it to us each month. It will stop you from having to see any of Twitch's commercials, and we get a small piece of your Twitch subscription cost....

Video of Insane Militarized Police State Response to Alleged Armed Man in Keene Home

May 14th, 2018 - 3:42pm by FTL_Ian in

A few weeks ago in Keene there was a standoff in West Keene to which dozens of cops and state police responded. They brought out the BEARCAT, MRAP, a bomb robot, all kinds of cruisers and trucks, and apparently every state cop from all over – in full camouflage, plus Keene police and Cheshire Sheriffs.

What was this tremendous militarized response regarding (at who knows what taxpayer cost)? A man who’d allegedly brandished and fired a weapon, according to the Keene Sentinel . That’s it.

Luckily independent journalist Vincent Freeman of Shire Free Media was on-the-scene and captured video of the militarized police state insanity . Overreaction? You decide.

To their credit, the cops didn’...

May 10th, 2018 - 3:16am by FTL_Ian in

Last year, state representatives Caleb Dyer , Joseph Stallcop , and Brandon Phinney made history by flipping from Republicans and Democrat to the Libertarian Party of New Hampshire .

The three of them outnumber the total number of Libertarian Party state reps in all the other 49 states combined.

At this year’s LPNH convention in Concord both Reps Dyer and Phinney spoke to the attendees about their decision to flip to the Libertarian Party of NH and what it’s meant to them. (Rep. Stallcop wasn’t able to make it.) Phinney even highlights some...

VIDEO: State Trooper Fails to Intimidate 4/20 in Concord

May 5th, 2018 - 1:04pm by FTL_Ian in

Here’s the final video from the series of videos from this year’s 4/20 Rally in Concord, NH at the state house steps where a lone state trooper walks up and attempts to intimidate the peaceful cannabis users into leaving a place where they have a right to be by bellowing, “If you’re smoking marijuana here you need to leave… move out now!”

A few inexperienced attendees begin to make an exit but most of the crowd stays in defiance. After being greeted by state representatives who were attending the event including Dan Hynes, the lone trooper tries again with a much more timid, “If you’re smoking marijuana, please move off the property.”

No one leaves. While he could have written tickets for anyone smoking the now-slightly-decriminalized cannabis, he instead exits the scene, never to return.

For those keeping track, this is the first time in nearly a decade of 4/20 rallies at the state house...
