“Robin Hood” Arraigned, Faces Three Years in Prison for Recording Police

James “Robin Hood” Cleaveland was in Keene district court today for an arraignment on three class A misdemeanor charges of “Disorderly Conduct”, “Disorderly Conduct”, and “Resisting Arrest”.  The charges stem from a bullshit arrest made at the scene of a suicide in Keene a couple of months ago where James was attempting to record video of the situation.

Here’s video from today’s arraignment.  The trial is set for 12/30 at 10am in Keene district court.

The AKPF #1 So Good, It Had To Be Censored

akpfvan_sfkmountainsaynrand1While an occasional flag is raised by YouTube over content contained in a given episode of AKPF #1, seldom does the generous video server host outright block an episode of the controversial cable access series. In the past, LiveLeak has been utilized to fill the gaps left by YouTube’s restrictive policies. It was not until this week, in a special Labor Day installment, Islemon State, that an episode has had the honor of being banned from both YouTube and the more gratuitous LiveLeak video sharing site. While a more permanent hosting option is being sought, our audience is free to enjoy the blocked episode by downloading the .mp4 file directly from the WeTransfer service:

Fans of the show consuming the content directly from Cheshire TV will have the privilege of seeing the original complete and uncut episode as it was originally intended. Sharing is caring! If you find any issues with the .mp4 format, you can also find an mpeg2 format copy here via WeTransfer for up to two weeks from publication, unless that platform also issues some form of ban.

Governor Campaign Makes Front Page :: Freeman Rated “A” by NH Firearms Coalition

a-school-letter-grade[1]Thanks to the Keene Sentinel’s Alyssa Dandrea for the front-page, above-the-fold article that featured me and the other candidates for governor in the democrat primary. I’ll include the text below.

Speaking of those primary opponents, Maggie Hassan received a “F” from the NH Firearms Coalition in their candidate assessment. I am honored to receive an “A”. (Clecia Terrio did not reply to the survey.) In the local state rep races, James Cleaveland received an “A” and Conan Salada a “B”.

The primary is on September 9th and you can register and vote the same-day.

Here’s the Sentinel article: (more…)

In a letter to the editor of the Keene Sentinel, David Crawford, the republican candidate for state representative in Ward One in Keene promises to “un-legislate”, support small businesses, and the little guy.  The primary election is on September 9th, but Crawford is unopposed in the primary.  He will likely go on to the general election and face either democrat James “Robin Hood” Cleaveland or democrat and political newcomer William Pearson.

Here’s David’s letter:

My name is David Crawford; I am a candidate for representative of Keene.

This letter is to ask for your vote in the upcoming election. I have been a Keene resident for 20 years. (more…)

Stefan Molyneux Jumps Shark, Uses State to Silence Critics

Stefan MolyneuxOver the last couple of weeks many in the liberty movement have been discussing the disturbing news about Stefan Molyneux, the popular liberty-oriented internet philosopher.

A few years ago, Molyneux was criticized (in The Guardian and elsewhere) for being a cult leader. Several aspects of Molyneux ring several cult red-flags, like jargon, a charismatic guru, encouraging followers to completely disassociate with family and friends who don’t agree (the jargon for this is “de-fooing”), and also the suppression of dissent within and without the group.

It is the last of those on which I focus here. Recently, Molyneux has admitted to his business manager using Youtube’s copyright claim system to lodge complaints against, and shut down two channels that were critical of Molyneux and his followers. One of them was “TruShibes”. Thankfully, someone had all the videos and have since re-uploaded them to new channel TruMirror. Molyneux has not apologized for his manager’s actions and allegedly excused them by claiming that he was protecting his listeners. The claim is some callers were supposedly being doxed and harassed by one of the offending channels (not TruShibes, another one called FreedomainDamon). Even if that were true, as a talk radio host, it’s not my responsibility to protect my callers. If you become part of my show, you’re becoming a public figure and someone listening to the show might want to know more about you. If that bothers you, don’t call at all, or if you do, be careful about what you reveal.

Former fans of Molyneux have said they’ve been ostracized and banned for dissenting on Molyneux’s forums and former “inner circle” (another cult red-flag) members have spoken out.

Recently, “PaulieDoyle” posted an article to Buzzfeed entitled, “Holy Moly: The Bizarre Online Cult Of Stefan Molyneux”. It was widely shared. Today it mysteriously disappeared from Buzzfeed (and I am reposting it below from its google cache). (more…)
