Cannabis Decrim Hearing Includes “Nobody”, NH Candidate for Governor

Nobody Speaks at Cannabis Decrim Hearing 2020

Nobody Speaks at Cannabis Decrim Hearing 2020

After a decade of attending various cannabis legalization and decriminalization hearings at the Concord state house, this week’s hearing for HB-1648 was refreshing. HB 1648 is a really good cannabis decrim bill that goes even further than the one that passed in 2017 that made possession of under 3/4ths of an ounce of flower and under 5 grams of concentrate a violation instead of a misdemeanor. If it passes this year, HB 1648 will eliminate any penalty for people over 21 possessing those amounts. It will no longer be something police can act on at all.

The bill is not perfect, of course, as I point out during my testimony in the two-hour long hearing. It still treats people under 21 like children by retaining violation-level penalties for people between 18 and 21, and also penalizes people under 18 for possession by forcing them into the juvenile system. That’s not fair or right. Also, the limits on the amounts that would be legal to possess are too low. That said, it’s a major step in the right direction and does it without creating a taxing and regulatory structure.

The real shocker at the public hearing this week was the lack of any police presence. Having attended these cannabis hearings over more than a decade, this is the first time where the police not only did not speak against the bill, but weren’t even there watching. The chiefs of police association did sign the blue sheet against the bill, and were the only ones to sign against it. All other signatures were for the bill. Plus, of all the various people who spoke, there was only one who spoke against it, the woman from prohibitionist busybody group “New Futures”. All the other voices were in favor of the bill passing.

One prominent speaker for the bill was NH 2020 gubernatorial candidate “Nobody” who has announced he’ll be challenging incumbent governor Chris Sununu this year in the republican primary. Nobody’s perspective on the issue is valuable as he has been prosecuted and sent to jail in New Hampshire for selling cannabis. He has promised that if elected, he’ll pardon every non-violent drug conviction in New Hampshire history.

Nobody told the house Criminal Justice panel that rather than punishing people under eighteen by putting them into the harsh juvenile system if they are caught with cannabis, the most the state agents should do is call their parents. He said further, “The idea that kids should be subject to more criminal liability than adults kind of flies in the face of reason, when you think about it. I mean, we’re going to attach a criminal penalty to your behavior because your mind is not well enough formed yet to make decisions that have a lasting impact. Well, don’t you think it’s possible that taking criminal sanction against somebody has a lasting impact on their life? Maybe they shouldn’t be bound to that by a decision they make so young.”

Here’s the clip of just Nobody’s testimony:

Last week, New Hampshire 2020 gubernatorial candidate Nobody rocked Manchester in his first appearance on “The Teddy Show”, the morning show on 96.5 The Mill (WMLL-FM). Morning jocks Teddy McKay and Laura Remillard really had a good time talking to Nobody – the interview is excellent and you can listen here.

They talked with Nobody about his just-announced first campaign promise to pardon ALL non-violent drug, prostitution, and gambling convictions in New Hampshire’s history, his declaration as the lone challenger to incumbent republican governor Chris Sununu, his permanent ban from Twitter, and more.

Nobody also scored his first mainstream media endorsements for his gubernatorial run. Remillard told Nobody during the interview that Sununu had been in the radio station cluster the same day, but that he wouldn’t interview with The Teddy Show, because they aren’t cool enough. She then said to Nobody, “I think you can take him.”

Immediately after, when speaking of the political class, Nobody declared, “If you’re not a member of George Carlin’s ‘club’, then you’re nobody to them, because they’re the kids who run everything.” McKay then endorsed Nobody, saying, “Alright, you just got my vote for knowing and liking George Carlin”. Nobody then praised Carlin as one of his formative influences.

Moments later, when discussing ending the war on cannabis, McKay said to Nobody, “Jeez, I think I’ve found a candidate here”.

Nobody is great on the radio. Don’t miss his interview here on The Mill’s soundcloud channel. You can also hear Nobody as a regular co-host on nationally syndicated talk radio show, “Free Talk Live“. You can follow his campaign blog at ElectNobody.com.

Twitter Permanently Bans Candidate for NH Governor, “Nobody”, for Hyperbolic Clinton Comment

Nobody’s tweet that resulted in a perma-ban.

Despite the obvious hyperbole of his tweet, NH republican gubernatorial candidate Nobody has been permanently deplatformed from Twitter. Earlier this weekend, Nobody tweeted a reply to this comment from Twitter user @karelytle711: “It’s like Pavlov’s dogs. The moment Hillary speaks, a lot of men lose their minds. It actually crosses political ideology. #misogyny”

Nobody responded with:

@karenlytle711 @justinamash It’s not #misogyny. I hate Bill just as much as I hate Hillary. They are both warmongering criminals who should be hung, drawn, and quartered.

The same night he tweeted it, Nobody received an email from Twitter stating his account has been suspended, permanently, for “Violating our rules against abuse and harassment. You may not engage in the targeted harassment of someone, or incite other people to do so. This includes wishing or hoping that someone experiences physical harm.” There was no warning, no temporary ban, just a permanent account suspension, per the remainder of the email which stated, “Note that if you attempt to evade a permanent suspension by creating new accounts, we will suspend your new accounts. If you wish to appeal this suspension, please contact our support team.”

Nobody, Candidate for NH Governor in 2020

Nobody, then Rich Paul, released from jail for selling cannabis.

Nobody attempted to appeal the suspension which resulted in a quick reply – 30 seconds later – from Twitter saying, “Your account has been suspended and will not be restored because it was found to be violating the Twitter Terms of Service, specifically the Twitter Rules against participating in targeted abuse. In order to ensure that people feel safe expressing diverse opinions and beliefs on our platform, we do not tolerate abusive behavior. This includes inciting other people to engage in the targeted harassment of someone.”

When I interviewed him this afternoon about it, Nobody called his comment hyperbolic and agreed that he doesn’t actually wish violence upon anyone, however he believes many people share his frustration with politicians’ criminal behavior. He told me, “It seems that Twitter is seeking to control political debate by removing candidates and public figures with views Twitter doesn’t like, based on subjective and arbitrary criteria. It probably doesn’t help that I was speaking in defense of Tulsi Gabbard, who had just ran afoul of the queen of warmongers, Hillary Clinton.”

Luckily, Nobody’s a believer in decentralization and has an account on the libertarian Mastodon server, Liberdon. Mastodon is an open-source competitor to Twitter where anyone can run a server, meaning there are thousands of servers globally, all of whom can federate with one another according to their preferences. In addition to following Nobody’s Mastodon account, you can also join his Elect Nobody chat room on the Telegram platform. Visit ElectNobody.com for more directly from Nobody.

UPDATE 19:45pm Eastern: In light of his criticism of Hillary Clinton, Nobody wants it to be known that he is not suicidal.

Cryptomania claims to be the first FM talk show in America exclusively covering cryptocurrency. It airs on WBOQ-FM north of Boston in Massachusetts. Hosted by Dana Crypto, Cryptomania saw the news that Nobody, declared candidate for governor of New Hampshire, was accepting cryptocurrency from supporters, so Cryptomania had to have him on.

Dana Crypto was well aware of Keene’s status as a global Crypto Mecca, and he asked Nobody questions about how he feels about the federal government as well as the ongoing libertarian migration to New Hampshire. The interview was very positive and fun. You can listen to the whole thing here on WBOQ-FM’s Soundcloud.

In addition, Nobody’s recent interview on rock station WAAF-FM in Massachusetts brought him even more media with NH’s top newspaper, The Union Leader writing about Nobody’s WAAF-FM interview and announcing his campaign for governor of New Hampshire.

A couple of days later, the Boston Globe ran a piece about Nobody’s campaign for governor.

Nobody is accepting cryptocurrency gifts on his website, ElectNobody.com, including Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Bitcoin (BTC), DASH, and Stellar Lumens (XLM).

Liberals Surround Man, Yell and Prevent Him from Walking at Straight Pride Parade

When I heard the first ever Straight Pride Parade was happening just an hour from my house, I knew I had to go. I brought along my video camera and a microphone with the goal of conducting as many interviews with interesting people as possible. No gotchas, just straight questions: “What brought you out today,” and “What do you think of the event?”

While I am pouring through yesterday’s footage, I came across 4 minutes of particularly defining footage. A man walking down the sidewalk gets blocked by a woman, and then a group of people, and prevented from moving. He yells for help but his calls are unanswered. The masked thugs revel in their positions of power and his vulnerability. They have deemed him the enemy. Why? That is unclear. But they have him. And they are going to project all their anger and hatred onto him. He smiles. He does not relent.

Here is a 2-hour video featuring all my raw footage from the event. You can feel as if you were there yourself!
