I will write up some future posts about this incident (was awaiting outcome before writing anything) but there are a few things I would like to get out immediately:
1) The “substance” found was not Klonopin. I’m still baffled why the sheriff department was telling the people who were calling on my behalf that it was Klonopin when the officers involved in the search identified the substance during the actual search. The substance is a medicine for which I have a prescription to treat a condition I have.
2) I really appreciate all the assistance I received from the “liberty” community at large especially Virginia copblockers and Keene activists (I’ll write up a post about this later).
3) New Hampshire is honestly the “best” state in my opinion in terms of freedom (post to follow).
4) My real “sin” in my opinion was not consenting to a search of the vehicle.
This is my analysis of Cantwell’s self defense incident. In my capacity as Mad Monk of the Church of the Invisible Hand, I will present it based on the principles of the Church, which are Peace, Love, Balance and Harmony.
First, let us examine principle of Peace. The Church believes that the best rule of behavior to achieve Peace is the Non-Aggression Principle. We believe that the only legitimate use of violence is in defense of yourself, another human or the property of a person. It is the only principle we will impose on others … we will forcibly prevent others from doing us harm. Cantwell’s behavior was completely in line with the principle of Peace. He does have a natural right to videotape a public street — public being defined as unowned or owned by an illegitimate entity like Government. Not only did he not initiate force, but when a credible threat of force was brought to bear against him, and he legally and morally could have fired in self-defense, he still forbore from firing, and brought the incident to a conclusion where nobody was harmed. That is the best possible outcome of a self-defense situation.
Secondly, let us examine the principle of Love. The Church believes as our Estimated Prophet Robert A Heinlein wrote.that “Love is that state where the well-being of another becomes essential of our own”, An (more…)

Activist Chris Cantwell was confronted by a drunk, angry and violent group of assailants. faced with this attack, he defended himself by drawing his firearm. Here is his description of the events, along with video so you can judge the situation for yourself. I will be writing later about my analysis of this event, the actions of the people involved and my response to some of the commentary on the event.
Matthew “Boston Strong” Schmidt believes “everyone loves” it when he lays on his horn as he drives by the Keene Activist Center. That’s what he did last week, while Keene Cop Block‘s JP Freeman was on the front porch. Once Boston got back to his house a few doors down, he taunted JP, which led to an unfortunate shouting match between the two. Then, Rich Paul went over to chat and following that, Boston came into the street and told JP more than once that he was going to “rap your head with a ratchet”, while brandishing a set of tools. Here’s the video:
To Boston’s credit, he’s a pretty dedicated activist. He recently even acquired a megaphone, which you see used in this video. He really doesn’t understand how to be a good neighbor, but he sure is an entertaining one. A little while back, Matt “Boston Strong” Schmidt was subpoenaed to a no contact hearing called for by JP at Cheshire superior court. At the hearing, Boston admitted to having been laying on his horn, which JP, who lived in the neighborhood at the time, claimed had woken up his small children. At the court hearing, Boston agreed to an order by the robed man which specifies Boston and JP should not have contact with each other and that Boston will not honk or blare his horn after 4pm. He’s been honking his horn in civil disobedience ever since the order was written. Personally, I find his antics amusing, but JP takes them personally.
While both men are responsible for creating the scene last week, (as JP did not have to react in-kind), Boston definitely instigated it, and escalated it. (more…)
CBS4 in Denver is reporting a scheme between two TSA workers to allow one to sexually assault men during screening. The accomplice, a female, flagged the gender of the passenger as female, causing the machine to report an anomalous penis shaped object, and giving the male an opportunity to take his time “examining” said member with the palms of his hands. This happened at least 12 times. The scheme was uncovered when a supervisor observed the assault on the last victim. No complaints had been filed by the (at least) 11 other victims.
Let that sink in a moment.
Think about it.
The other 11 victims didn’t even know that they had been assaulted, because they somehow thought it appropriate for a government employee to touch them that way. That, to me is the most disturbing part of this case. They thought it was OK.
It is a metaphor for modern life.
Ordinary people go through their entire lives, getting raped by the government, and never even realizing that anything is wrong. They pay their taxes, and never ask who gave government a right to the fruits of their labor. They obey the morass of laws under which America staggers, as best they can, and never ask who gave government a right to control their lives. They watch their spouses and their friends and their children caged and crippled by the system, and never even consider rising up against it. They justify this by saying that the majority wills it, and never wonder what gives half of the population to impose its will on the other half.
Of course it goes without saying that no charges will be filed in this case.
Wake Up; That uncomfortable feeling you’re experiencing should be telling you something!
