Last week I had the pleasure of being the guest on Manchester Public Television‘s “Matt Connarton UNLEASHED“. Matt is a liberty-friendly New Hampshire native and we had an excellent conversation covering talk radio, Free Talk Live, the Free State Project, conspiracy theories, the Libertarian Party, ballot access restrictions, and market justice. Here’s the full hour of what was a live television broadcast on Wednesday at 2pm on MPTV.

In this very special Porcfest episode, the Prophet Ian Freeman (peace be upon him) of Keene comes on the show to talk about hardcore activism and hardcore media presence.
Wednesday, June 18th 2014 – 10am – Activists convened at the NH Supreme Court to hear Rich Paul’s attorney argue for an appeal. That means even though Rich Paul lost his original trial, he can ask a higher court to hear arguments to decide if the original ruling was wrongly decided. If they decide to go forward with the appeal, Rich will have a whole new trial. The Supreme Court’s ruling is where laws are challenged and clarified. Whatever they decide has the potential to set future precedent.
Our friends active with Checkpoint USA, Cop Block, Free Talk Live and Police the Police: A Community Project yesterday announced the Accountability Through Transparency Video Contest – the winner of which will receive a pair of Pivothead Sunglasses!

It’s been a hectic 36 hours since my camera was seized from my person by two armed men, one of whom rifled through my pockets with his bear mitts. In that time period, I’ve organized videos regarding the encounter into one source on Fr33manTVraw, and have followed up with legal professionals on how to move forward. The next step is finding out where the missing affidavit is, and if it even exists. I’ve since received a backup recording device from a friend, which I used today as I went Robin Hooding with visitors in town from Michigan. Fortunately, I have not been accosted by law enforcement since the robbery. I’m am still operating under the impression that myself or my property may be seized at any time while I am about, as there is no deadline on the surviving portion of the search warrant that was executed on myself yesterday morning.
Last evening, a good portion of Free Talk Live focused on the peculiar encounter with law enforcement, as I occupied the guest chair on the program, beginning at 0:21:34. In addition to the incident, we discuss AKPF #1, Robin Hooding, and toward the end of the show, the war on chalk is examined. The full episode is linked below, courtesy of the soundcloud.
To whom it may concern,
I am the Owner and Managing Editor of Free Press Publications which is a Registered News Organization with the SJC.
On the morning of March 20, I went to the Palmer District Court to attend and cover a hearing in the case of State v Ian Freeman. Upon arrival, I was told that I could not bring my camera & tripod, to which I responded, “I’m media, yes, I can,” and pulled out the form that was sent to me via email from Erika Gully-Santiago (Deputy Public Information Officer).
The bailiff said that since I did not present him “the original” (something I don’t have, as it was sent electronically) that he would need to have a judge verify the form, and that I would need to wait outside of the building.
After waiting for nearly 45 minutes, I was told I would need to fill out a motion which the judge would need to approve before I would be allowed through the security checkpoint; this time I was allowed to stand between the two sets of doors instead of waiting outside. In total it was almost 1 hour from the time I arrived at the Palmer District Court and the time I was allowed through security.
I have a few questions that I would like answered:
- Is this the normal procedure for ALL members of the media, or is this treatment reserved for people who are not members of the big media companies?
- As a Registered News Organization, why was I required to fill out a motion to film?
- Is a motion required each time I wish to film a trial?
- If a motion IS required each time I wish to film a trial, why must I be registered with the SJC?
- If a motion is NOT required each time I wish to film a trial, why was one required today?
I anticipate your response with answers to each of the questions I’ve asked.
In Peace, Freedom, Love & Liberty,
Darryl W. Perry
