“Essential” Manchester Crypto Vending Machine Moves to Bedford Due to Restaurant Crackdown

Murphy's Taproom Bedford

Murphy’s Taproom’s Bedford – Now Home to Manch’s Original Crypto Vending Machine

UPDATE 2020-05-04: This CVM is now back in its original location in Manchester at Murphy’s Taproom at 494 Elm St!

This week we got the bad news that Murphy’s Taproom in Manchester is closed until further notice due to “HIS EXCELLENCY” Chris Sununu’s “orders” destroying the freedom to run a business in New Hampshire. They had tried to stay open for take-out, but word on the street is that there’s virtually no one in downtown Manchester patronizing the various Elm St. restaurants. This is likely due to people conserving their resources and eating at home instead of buying take-out. However, Murphy’s Taproom’s Bedford location is still doing business, so this week we moved Manchester’s original Cryptocurrency Vending Machine to Bedford.

The CVM is located in the basement, where buyers will have far more privacy than they did previously in Downtown Manchester. Murphy’s Taproom in Bedford is at 393 NH-101 and is open seven-days-a-week from 12p-8p for takeout, delivery, and the Cryptocurrency Vending Machine, all of which are “essential” services.

While every business is “essential” to the well being of its owners and employees, the people calling themselves the “State of New Hampshire” have decided they are going to tell people who can be open and under what circumstances. Rather than letting the market of free people decide, the bureaucrats who are known for being dishonest and violent, will decide. In “emergency order 17“, Sununu, who – no kidding – is referred to as “HIS EXCELLENCY”, orders all businesses who are not “essential” to close. Those deemed essential are ordered to implement so-called “social distancing” on their premises. The order expires on May 4th. So, it will be at least another month of economic devastation to New Hampshire business. From this attack on our freedom, many businesses will not reopen.

All of this over a mere virus. People have never freaked out over a virus before, and there have been many over time. For whatever reason, the authoritarians decided this was the time to roll out insane, Draconian restrictions. This crackdown is fear-based attack on our liberties in the name of safety. A certain founding father had something to say about that:

Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
-Benjamin Franklin

As the federal gang is planning to hand out 2.2 trillion in freshly printed dollars, it would be wise to consider turning dollars into cryptocurrency or precious metals as the inflating of the currency isn’t going to end with the 2.2 trillion. It’s just getting started.

Thankfully the Shire Free Church operates the most affordable Cryptocurrency Vending Machines in all of the region. Currently the CVMs offer the original Bitcoin (BTC) and privacy coin Monero (XMR). In addition to the one at Murphy’s in Bedford, there are machines are located in Keene at the Thirsty Owl bar across from Keene State College at 141 Winchester St. and also the Bitcoin Embassy NH at 661 Marlboro St. Thirsty Owl is open seven days a week, though you may want to call first to make sure they are open.

  1. So long as they don’t crackdown on crack ….I can hunkered or whatever the fuck you call it

  2. *Hunker down

  3. i never heard anyone call him HIS EXCELLENCY MORE THAN IAN

  4. Geez Ian, let it go. You are advocating for people to break the law of staying home because of the pandemic. You are going to change this no matter how hard you try.

    Do you know you could be held liable if one of your minions gets covid-19, because you are encouraging people to break the law and provide gathering places for people to be. Two preachers around Atlanta did the same thing and they were arrested. In one church out of 80 people who attended, 65 tested positive and one died of covid-19

    Everyone knows you like the limelight and want to be the center of attention all the time but, you are picking a no win battle on this one. You sound scared and you are trying to compensate it with very poor knee jerk life decisions. You are acting like a little kid. You are the Jim Jones of this pandemic for freekeeners. He smooth talked his minions and said the government was out to get them. Then when he was exposed, he killed all of his supporters.

    I have seen what covid-19 does to a person. Why you would want that or even tempt fate is so beyond me.

    “All of this over a mere virus. People have never freaked out over a virus before”

    What?, Ian put his foot into his mouth again? Let’s see, there was the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic, polio in the 40-50s. HIV/Aids, Swine flu, etc… And yes, the people did panic about it and there were lots of orders issued by the governor that rivaled what’s happening today.

    “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety”.
    -Benjamin Franklin

    That was back in the 1700’s Ian. Today is quite different. You can’t live in the past Ian today is 2020. Why don’t you look for other sayings that are more recent and apply to whats going on today.

    “As the federal gang is planning to hand out 2.2 trillion in freshly printed dollars, it would be wise to consider turning dollars into cryptocurrency or precious metals as the inflating of the currency isn’t going to end with the 2.2 trillion. It’s just getting started”

    Are you a stock broker now? You can’t even comprehend 2 trillion dollars. Not all of it is going to the people of the USA. Some of of it is going for infrastructure relief and a large portion of it is going to health care and hospitals. I don’t know why you would put any money into cryptocurrency. Cryptocurrency is also getting beat up. The prices are falling. Since bitcoin and others have no affiliation with the government, no money will be given to bail it out should something happen. It will be interesting to see what happens in the future.

    Ian, this whole article is full of lies and your assumptions without facts. I don’t know of any libertarians except you and some off your minions violating the governors orders. Again, you could be held libel should someone get sick or worse. Since you freekeeners like to sue any and everyone, you have assured them you are the first one to start with.

  5. That was verbal diarrhea at its finest, Jacks. So what have we learned? Well, for one, we all now know that you haven’t the faintest clue why printing trillions of dollars out of thin air is a bad idea for America. So I guess there’s that. Will you be making any other stupid observations today, or will we just have to be patient and wait for Ian’s next article to come out?

  6. Aw Jacks, it almost sounds like you care about Ian… And all this time I thought you just wanted him to be punished for daring to question his superiors. There may be hope for you yet my friend.

    So you think Ben Franklin’s words are too old now to ring true? Oh my… Now that would explain a lot now Jacks about the problem you have with these guys…

    How about a bit more recent quote then?
    ‘In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act’ – George Orwell. What do you think Jacks? Still too old?

    No worries Jacks, just spend some more years here reading and commenting, and you will continue to gradually increase your understanding and comprehension. Don’t give up!

  7. Silvia DeSitter – Normally I don’t engage trolls but you must have really worked hard at coming up with this persona. In other posts your only goal was to create drama and confrontations just like what you are doing in this post.

    You don’t have a clue as to what you are talking about. Who can really decipher your mentally ill babble? You haven’t made one intelligent statement in any of these articles so why should I assume you would now.

    I suggest you educate yourself fool. Stop sulking. with all of your mental masturbation statements, you look like the biggest idiot out there.

    Try to stay on topic.

  8. Odds are Jacks thinks Ben Franklin and George Orwell are two of Ian’s minions.

  9. Intrigare – You must be another one of these trolls. I’t very difficult to understand why you hate yourself and others so much you always jump on the troll band wagon. You use multiple names because your split personalities insist upon it.

    Why don’t you take this time and learn about what’s happening in this world. There are far too many other problems then to converse with the tiniest f trolls like you. Keep reaching for that limelight.

  10. You don’t engage with trolls, Jacks? What a practical habit to have.

    Anyway Jacks, do you have any opinions on the wonderful opportunities this $2.2 trillion stimulus package will bring us? I for one am super excited about the $400 million going to new voting initiatives. The expansion of early voting, online voter registration, and the implementation of services that will allow voters to cast ballots by mail should really help the Democratic Party loads when cheating in elections. Better still, it will do absolutely nothing to combat the dangers of covid-19. Isn’t that great?

    Can’t wait to hear more from you, Jacks. Bob C. seems to think you’re really smart and easy to get along with. I trust his instincts.

  11. Oh Jacks, in case there was any question as to the motives behind my trolling, it is clearly to solicit the kind of response you provided above! Thanks for feeding the trolls Jacks. Lol

  12. Silvia, we know Jack’s answer, don’t we? Something along the lines of “if the establishment says its good, then its good. Who are we ask questions”?

    Jack’s head hurts so let me take over for him on this one:

    Me, my answer is that this stimulus is one of the biggest thefts in human history. If anyone bothered to do the math, 2.2T divided by the US population 331B equals about $6,600 for every adult and child in the United States. Last I checked, the IRS will be sending out only a fraction of that.

    Why even talk about $400mil for new voter initiatives? At only 0.02% of $2.2T, it is a mere distraction.

    Ok Jacks, your turn. What else did Ian do wrong?

  13. Thanks Intrigare. I’m sure Jacks will appreciate you taking the time to respond to me.

    As for that pork product being a distraction? I don’t think it is, and for the reason I previously gave. It also has nothing to do with protecting Americans from covid-19, which was the selling point of the stimulus package in the first place.

    Hey. What do you think Jacks is going to say to us next time? I for one hope he tells one of us to get an education again. That one’s my favorite.

  14. I must say, being referred to as a troll by Jacks is a personal achievement of mine. That one would be difficult to top.

    I’d say if he’ll blame me for coronavirus deaths next, it’d be a close second.

  15. Jumping Jacks ‘Do you know you could be held liable if one of your minions gets covid-19’

    there are going to be possible lawsuits against Fox News having played down COVID-19 & regular viewers then being infected so what you say is a real possibility

  16. Yeah, zx81. Stand with your Bernie Bros and take no notice of the real villains behind all of this: the Chinese government and their collaborators in the WHO. Because hey, bread lines are a good thing, right comrade?

  17. It appears Ian values his rights enough to not hand them over so easily, Jacks and zx81. Oh no! What will you do now???

    While we’re on the subject, where are all the lawsuits against the CDC and all the public officials who told the public not to wear face masks? Are they immune? (No pun intended.)

  18. So why did Dracula change his name… He’s being like the other trolly goofballs

  19. Me thinks this emphasis on “essential”… Could really put a test and challenge to things. Like booze has been seemed essential.
    I don’t know if there state will take on essential oils, which have essential right in the name so obviously they have a good argument. I THINK ESSENTIAL OILS ARE ESSENTIAL AND I STAND BY THAT! 🙂

  20. A bar selling alcohol where people can decide to go there or not is forced to be closed…

    …meanwhile a State operated forcible monopoly selling alcohol (State liquor stores) is not closed by the same people who force the bar to be closed. Hmmm.

    How do the scary germs know that the bar is bad, but the liquor store is good?

    Should I write a genuflecting letter to my Congressman to ask how to solve this mystery?

    What do you call a Congressman ? I know “your honor” and “your excellency” are already taken. Can I get some help with this?

  21. Bob C I think they prefer “Lord”. But you don’t need to write… I think you can just kneel down and pray to them… Is that right Jacks?

  22. The Germans had a vote and settled on “Mein Fuhrer.” We all know how that went.

  23. Jumping Jacks-“Let’s see, there was the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic, polio in the 40-50s. HIV/Aids, Swine flu, etc… And yes, the people did panic about it and there were lots of orders issued by the governor that rivaled what’s happening today.”

    And back during the plague, there were long processions of self-flagellating penitents in the streets, each drawing blood from themselves because church clerics told them the pain they suffered would convince God to relent.

    See Jumping Jacks? The “experts” always have some useless task ready-and-waiting which they hope will keep you from figuring out we don’t really need them.

  24. Cave Johnson – “And back during the plague, there were long processions of self-flagellating penitents in the streets, each drawing blood from themselves because church clerics told them the pain they suffered would convince God to relent.”

    Lets see. Back during the “black plague years, their medical knowledge was very poor and tied into religious beliefs. Today it’s much different. Using your analogy to state your point is very poor and not even sensible.

  25. zx81 – “While we’re on the subject, where are all the lawsuits against the CDC and all the public officials who told the public not to wear face masks? Are they immune”?

    Fox news is always getting sued.

  26. I know you don’t normally converse with trolls Jacks, but at least give credit where credit is due. zx81 didn’t write that…

    That was me attempting to follow the advice you gave. You know, to try to learn what’s happening in this world. How am I doing so far?

  27. Dammit Intrigare. You can’t trust anyone, anymore. Well played, sir. Well played.

  28. Thanks for sharing that link, Cave Johnson. It helps me to learn what’s going on in this world, just like what Jacks wants me to do.

    Hey Jacks, it seems from that video that even some cops believe there is something fishy going on with the covid-19 scare. Oh my, aren’t they the ones who are supposed to come and arrest Ian for promoting and practicing the human and Constitutional rights of assembly, speech, and press?

  29. Wiggles ‘ Stand with your Bernie Bros and take no notice of the real villains behind all of this’

    oh you mean the medical experts who’d advice politicians are acting upon

    It’s seriously fucked up to think doctors who want to keep people safe & save lives are villains

  30. Cave Johnson – And this video means what? It was put out by an activist. In other words, it isn’t credible. It’s something Ian would put out.

  31. Intrigare – It’s to bad you troll for a little attention. That destroys your credibility.

  32. I like to think I’m INcredible. Get it, Jacks? 😀

  33. xz81-“oh you mean the medical experts who’d advice politicians are acting upon” (sic)

    Yeah. Those guys. Particularly this asshole:

    https://freebeacon.com/coronavirus/calls-mount-for-who-chief-to-resign/

    And these ones:

    https://foreignpolicy.com/2020/04/02/china-coronavirus-who-health-soft-power/

    “It’s seriously fucked up to think doctors who want to keep people safe & save lives are villains”

    Are you stupid or something, zx81? Or are you just sowing dissension for its own sake?

    Questioning experts and the bullshit artists who apologize for them is both smart and necessary. Especially when they’re obviously dropping the ball or committing outright crimes. And there are at least 720k people who agree with me.

    https://foreignpolicy.com/2020/04/02/china-coronavirus-who-health-soft-power/

  34. -Jumping Jacks

    “And this video means what? It was put out by an activist. In other words, it isn’t credible. It’s something Ian would put out.”

    Uh huh. So how do you determine which sources are “credible,” Jumping Jacks? I’ll bet it involves truly rigorous vetting standards like “I heard it from Cenk Uygur on TYT.”

  35. Cave Johnson – I trust the information I get from medical directors, the health department, board of physicians, and the state epidemiologist. They know more then some activist who wants a little attention.

  36. Oooh Jacks, where can I sign up to get information like that? Or should I just let you tell me what they said? If you said it, that means its credible. Right Jacks?

  37. Mmm hmm. That’s very discriminating of you. I’ll bet you’re really popular with car salesmen.

    Anyway, Jumping Jacks, I’m curious. Which one of these “trusted information sources” you’ve been telling us about is your favorite?

    How about Sir Flips-A-Lot?

    https://gizmodo.com/white-house-advisor-dr-fauci-flip-flops-on-whether-tra-1842308441

    Or maybe the war criminal?

    https://hnewswire.com/whos-tedros-adhanom-should-be-put-on-trial-for-crimes-against-humanity/

    Or maybe even the guys who started lying about all this in the first place?

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2020/04/05/blame-chinese-communist-party-coronavirus-crisis-column/2940486001/

  38. Hmmm Jacks… Which state epidemiologist are you getting info from, exactly? It appears the NH state epidemiologist is just copying whatever the CDC is telling the public, which today is to wear homemade masks. He says the latest research is shows they’re effective, without giving any details about said research of course. This of course is after they already told us not to wear masks.

    I’m starting to question your list of credible sources Jacks. You claim to be a medical professional, right? Would you honestly trust a homemade mask to protect you from airborne contagions and advise others to do the same? Because its starting to seem like activists couldn’t do much worse than your list of sources when it comes to accuracy.

  39. Intrigare – Again, you have no clue as to what you are talking about. You take pieces of media reports mostly by activist articles. If you want the periodicals and most current information I have, Look on the internet for those subscriptions. I must warn you, some of these subscriptions are very expensive and some you can’tr get because it is for health care providers.

    There is enough drama in the world today. I find it hard to believe you can’t find a better topic to talk about

  40. because Ian’s opinion are so contrary to general consensus on the COVID-19 pandemic & because he’s deliberately flouting the lockdown measures to stem the spread of the virus it’s not being arrested he should fear but somebody deliberately coughing over him because they’ve taken a disliking to what he’s been saying

  41. Oh Jacks, you do know you can subscribe to CDC alerts for free, don’t you? And a subscription to TYT is only $4.99/month.

    But you know what they say Jacks… A fool and his money are easily parted.

  42. zx81 Fear is the problem, not the solution

  43. Uh huh. “Consensus.” You mean like this kind, zx81?

    https://www.vox.com/2020/3/15/21180506/coronavirus-poll-democrats-republicans-trump

    The power mongers you admire so much have been fashioning a crisis to get away with as much swag as is humanly possible. Ian understands this. The voters understand this. And so, apparently, does Vox. When are you going to catch up, retard?

  44. Wiggles ‘The voters understand this’

    remind me when last libertarians won any significant election

    ‘retard’

    at least I’m not a disabilist cunt unlike you

    Maybe you should get out of mom’s basement & stop looking for articles to reinforce your political fantasy land

  45. I think we need to fear those appointed to solve our problems more than we do the problems themselves, Intrigare.

  46. Intrigare is obviously Drac Vermell.

  47. Wiggles ‘The power mongers you admire so much have been fashioning a crisis to get away with as much swag as is humanly possible. Ian understands this. The voters understand this.’

    zx81 ‘remind me when last libertarians won any significant election’

    Why, zx81? … Because if voters did understand… they would be electing libertarians… ?

    Oh my zx81, I think there is hope for you also. If you and Jacks keep activating those thinking cells and making those brain connections, who knows what you might accomplish. Maybe you could even be part of the liberty movement. No guarantees, but anything is possible. Don’t give up!

  48. First-rate comeback, zx81. By the way, my mom’s a saint.

    Anyway, numbskull, the “voters” referred to in that Vox article aren’t Libertarians. They’re Democrats and Republicans.

    And while they don’t like the politicization of this any more than Libertarians do, the Rust Belt Democrats hate it the most. Remember who they voted for last time?
