The Sriracha Guy Reports on Jury Outreach in Dover, NH

Dover Outreach

Dover Jury Outreach Crew

Randy Clemens is a new mover to New Hampshire as part of the Free State Project. Prior to moving here, he’d never heard of Jury Nullification. Now he’s an active part of the new outreach project happening at Strafford superior court in Dover, NH. Randy is also known as “The Sriracha Guy”. Here’s his blog on this week’s successful and first-ever jury outreach in Dover. If you want to join in the fun, please join the New Hampshire Juror Outreach group on facebook.

“It is presumed, that juries are the best judges of facts; it is, on the other hand, presumed that courts are the best judges of law. But still both objects are within your power of decision… you [juries] have a right to take it upon yourselves to judge both, and to determine the law as well as the fact in controversy.” —John Jay, first U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice, State of Georgia v. Brailsford (1794)

 

You’re out on a leisurely walk in the city one day, simply going about your business and keeping to yourself, when… crap! People handing out informational literature. Uggghh. Don’t they have anything better to do? You’ve clearly spotted them and worse yet, they spotted you spotting them! Good luck escaping their tractor beam now!

Potential jurors receive Jury Nullification information from volunteers with the Free State Project and Rights Brigade

You briefly consider reaching for your cell phone to pretend to take a call, but it’s too late. It’s clear that there’s no way to weasel out of accepting their disruptive pamphlet, so you force a polite, acknowledging smile, or construct a curious, inquisitive glance as you take the propaganda from their outstretched hand, feigning interest juuuuuussstt until you’re out of their field of view (probably), at which point you can safely discard whatever it was they were peddling without looking like a terrible, close-minded person.

 

Sound familiar? Or is that just the process that usually runs through my head when I see someone handing out unsolicited pamphlets? (To be fair, it is usually promotional garbage trying to get us to buy something, or telling us we’re going to some version of hell if we don’t repent for our existence, etc.) Well, even despite my less-than-savory feelings about this method of interpersonal exchange, I was actually on the other side of it for the first time this week, volunteering my time to help spread awareness of an incredible right that we as Americans possess, but simply aren’t informed of: jury nullification of law.

Heroic Swanzey Teen Refuses to Stand for Pledge of Allegiance

Original Pledge of Allegiance Salute

Original Pledge of Allegiance Salute

Social media is on fire locally with the Keene Sentinel breaking a story about a heroic student at Monadnock Regional middle school who recently got in trouble for not standing for the socialist pledge of allegiance.

Fatima M. Smart was threatened by her teacher, Vicki Mercier, when Fatima refused to be a lemming and stand up with the rest of the class for her daily dose of mind-numbing chanting and idol-worship. Fatima is well within her rights to stay seated, and should be able to do it without being threatened or scared. If only more Americans were as brave as she, but many who otherwise would follow Fatima’s lead, will not because of fear of social pressure. In Fatima’s case, that included her teacher targeting her in an attempt to embarrass Fatima in front of her class.

Even someone who does a cursory level of research into the pledge of allegiance will learn that it’s nothing more than a pro-state indoctrination chant written by a self-proclaimed socialist. The picture on this article reveals what the old hand motion was for the pledge prior to it becoming the hand-over-the-heart – the Roman (aka Fascist) salute!

If you love freedom you should actively oppose participation in the pledge of allegiance and give Fatima your support. Don’t let the nationalists shout you down or pressure you to participate.

Her mother, Kerry A. Boscarino, says she is planning to bring a civil case against the school district, since the teacher refused to apologize for targeting her daughter for humiliation. Stay tuned here for the latest. Thanks for your courage, Fatima!

Keene State College Students Appreciate Hassan Confrontation

Keene Cannabis Coalition

Keene Cannabis Coalition

Yesterday, the Keene Cannabis Coalition released a public statement supporting Rich Paul and I in our confronting of Maggie Hassan this weekend at the Keene State College graduation. The students said:

thank you for coming to graduation commencement and asking Governor Hassan the tough questions that need to be asked, we applaud you for taking advantage of this unique situation when we were unable to because of the hectic schedule us students were following.

We of course had no intention to disrupt the ceremony for the students, and for the most part, students were not around Maggie Hassan. She was at the back of the procession; the students were at the front. When she got too close to the ceremony, we ended our confrontation.

Jury Nullification Outreach Spreading to New Areas!

NH_Jury_Square-300x300Jury nullification outreach has been going on regularly for years in Cheshire and Grafton counties. Recently this important jury rights outreach has expanded to Hillsborough, Merrimack, and next week, Strafford.

Thanks to Joel Valenzuela, Riaz Kahan, and the others who are helping with this important work. If you would like to help expand the outreach to all ten counties, please join the New Hampshire Juror Outreach group on facebook.

Hassan Confronted for Several Minutes on Cannabis Hypocrisy: VIDEO

Sad Maggie Hassan

Does she have a conscience?

This afternoon the hypocrite governor of New Hampshire spoke at Keene State College’s 2015 graduation ceremony.  Maggie Hassan, the boss of the state’s executive branch, is likely to veto the cannabis decrim bill if it makes it through the NH senate.  It already passed the NH house with a supermajority of votes.  It’s clear that decriminalization is what the people of New Hampshire want (it’s also the humane choice), but Hassan throws her loyalty into the camp of the police and cares not one bit about the lives that continue to be ruined because of her inhumane war on pot.

Oh, and to make her position even more outrageous, it turns out she herself has used cannabis in her college days.  That raging hypocrisy didn’t stop her from showing up at Keene State College and acting like she actually gives a damn about the very same students that her police regularly threaten and harass over victimless crimes like cannabis and alcohol possession.  Rich Paul and I went down to KSC today to confront her on these things and were accompanied by local education activist Ed Bryans who was upset with Hassan’s veto of the anti-common core bill. We found her at the end of the commencement and had plenty of time to give her a hard time while she was unable to leave, much to the dismay of a few of her sycophants. Here’s the video:

It’s not too late for cannabis decrim to pass, but Hassan and the NH senators need to hear from you. Please reach out to your senator here and ask them to support HB618, the cannabis decriminalization bill. Then please call Hassan’s office and encourage her to do the right thing and let decrim pass.
