This week’s installment of AKPF #1 takes place in three acts. The most modern information is presented initially, and all others are portrayed in descending order. You won’t want to miss out on the historical knowledge presented in the latest episode!
I’ve been informed that someone, apparently from the “STOP FREE KEENE!!!” facebook group of haters, has been leaving color, two-sided hitpiece fliers on cars downtown that have been saved by Robin Hood of Keene. The flier (PDF) quotes an alleged Graham Colson facebook profile update then proceeds to attack Robin Hooders. On the flipside of the flier, it cites some of my answers to the Sentinel questions for school board candidates.
This is really great news! I wasn’t planning on doing any campaigning for school board besides media requests, so imagine how pleased I was that someone took the time to not only distribute my ideas, but also pay for full color printing to-boot! Whoever you are, I am humbled and honored that you feel my ideas are so important that you’d spend your precious time and money spreading them. Thank you so much and keep up the great work!

As reported here last week, two Free State Project participants are running for office in Bedford, NH and their candidacy is stirring up displeasure on the part of the political class in town. The old boys are angry that their power structure is being threatened and are lashing out against the liberty-loving candidates.
Now the dust-up has received front page coverage in the Union Leader.
Libertarians worldwide should take note: This is what happens when you actually have a chance at making an impact, as we do here in NH. The establishment will attack and they will attack hard. Most libertarians have no experience with this – their campaigns are largely ignored nationwide. In New Hampshire the opposition doesn’t ignore us – they are attacking and actually encouraging people to research the FSP! What great free publicity!
If you love liberty, start making plans to move here as part of the Free State Project and get active. These pro-state people are scared and desperate already, and the official FSP move hasn’t even begun!

A candlelight vigil held two months following the deaths of five ducks at Nashua’s Crown Plaza Hotel was attended by approximately 15 mourners and celebrants of the lives of the deceased waterfowl. Broadcast media was standing by with local newspaper correspondents snapping photos and jotting notes, as others videotaped the ceremony from multiple angles. The following day, original stories appeared in the Nashua Telegraph and Manchester’s Union Leader, with a reprint of the Telegraph story appearing in the Keene Sentinel. Each article highlighted the eulogies delivered during the public ceremony, and described the scene as participants sang Amazing Grace and marched to place candles near the scene of the bloodshed. In the syndicated coverage from the Concord-NH-Patch, videos from four different angles are linked from Fr33manTVraw.
Local politicos in Bedford are on the attack against two participants in the Free State Project who are running for local office. Aaron Day is running for school board and Matt Philips is running for town council. Local pro-state group, “Taxpayers for Quality Education”, sent out a hitpiece email which claims (pic1, pic2),
“The school budget, which does increase, is coming under attack, including by outside interests who have moved into our town with the express intent of taking over our local government.”
“…Aaron Day is a high ranking member of the Free State Project. . .send a message to Mr. Day and the Free Staters that they picked the wrong state.”
Plus, a former town councilor has targeted the duo and the FSP as a whole in his cable access show:
It’s yet another acknowledgement of how scared the statists are of the Free State Project, even at this early stage in the game. If you love liberty, you really need to get up here and join the fun!

Cody Wilson has a unique relationship to the intellectual property that he has been developing for the past few years. He has designed three dimensional, printable plastic firearms accessories and essential parts, including rifle lower receivers, extended magazines, and the first functional printed plastic pistol, known as the Liberator. However, intellectual property laws in the United States prevent him from being able to directly share these designs with the world. While courageous others risk fines or jail time for hosting the schematics independently, the information produced by Defense Distributed is essentially illegal. The reason for this is that the IP laws unique to munitions technology specifically state that all intellectual property related to munitions are deemed to be under the ownership of the US military. As a crypto-anarchist, Cody is interested in neither profiting from nor restricting the sharing of his designs, yet his wishes as the product’s creator are rebuked by federal statute so as to place an artificial limitation on the advancement of the technology. Despite the restrictions and the uses of intellectual property laws to limit the free flow of information and media, Defense Distributed continues to stand for the right of producers to share their created items freely, understanding that ultimately ideas cannot be owned. The above interview was filmed on 22 February 2014 at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Nashua, New Hampshire. Read more
Liberty activists gathered just outside the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Nashua on the final morning of Liberty Forum 2014 to memorialize five innocent ducks who were run down by a drunken state representative. The story about the “duck vigil” was covered in both the Nashua Telegraph and the Union Leader.
Video footage will be coming soon. Stay tuned to Free Keene.

Davi is one of the founders of Bitcoin not Bombs and is a participant in the Free State Project, though he has yet to make the move to NH. Here’s the story in the Nashua Telegraph, thanks to photojournalist Bradford Randall.
Last Friday I got an email from Brandon Ross, my awesome pro-bono attorney, who informed me that Michael Valentine – who works as the District Attorney for Hillsborough County – has charged me with three felony wiretapping charges. Yes, these are the exact same charges as I was previously convicted of but were overturned by the Supreme Court earlier this month.
