  1. 175 reps back Ron Paul Fed audit From RidleyReport.com - Powerful Democrat Alan Grayson joins "Dr. No's" quest for transparency at America's most dangerous governing institution. But what would be the concrete benefits of an audit? Plz Digg it at: http://digg.com/politics/175_reps_back_Ron_Paul_Fed_audit
  2. A recent gun-friendly outcome in a New Hampshire District Court could have positive implications for those who want to carry a concealed handgun. Prosecutors at the Manchester District Court dropped both counts of “carrying a concealed handgun without a license” against a Free Stater* who was described by the media as “heavily armed,” carrying two loaded handguns and spare loaded magazines, and wearing body armor. The case received television coverage and national publicity via an Associated Press story. William Walker was defended by attorney Evan F. Nappen of Concord (www.efnappen.com), the Corporate Counsel of the state-wide organization Pro-Gun New Hampshire (www.PGNH.org), and one of its five Directors. Nappen argued on motion that New Hampshire must honor the man's Virginia concealed carry permit because of the Federal Constitution’s "full faith and credit” clause. This is significant because New Hampshire does not officially maintain concealed carry reciprocity with Virginia. Unlike marriage licenses and driver licenses, state concealed carry licenses are generally honored by other states through reciprocal state-to-state agreements — but Virginia is not among the states listed on the New Hampshire Department of Safety’s Web page of such reciprocity agreements, www.nh.gov/safety/divisions/nhsp/ssb/permitslicensing/plupr.html. In a plea agreement reached with the State, both counts of “carrying a concealed handgun without a license” were dropped, and all firearms, magazines and accessories ordered returned by the State. Mr. Walker pled “No Contest” to disorderly conduct and a motor vehicle violation. He received a $500 fine with $300 of it being suspended, It's not clear what will happen to the next person "caught" carrying with only a Virginia permit, but the case serves as an instructional precedent, although not a binding one. Now there is one more arrow in the legal argument quiver of those who wish to peaceably exercise their gun rights without a New Hampshire carry license. *Free Staters are people who move to New Hampshire for more freedom: http://FreeStateProject.org
  3. Thanks Tony for focusing on action rather than talk.. It does need to be peaceful action. I did up a list of things people can do that seem most effective, after all these years of trying things. It is sort of NH-centric though. http://nhunderground.com/forum/index.php?topic=17486.0
  4. Arrested for videotaping a traffic stop, apparently...the activists at MotorHomeDiaries.com are now out of jail. They had just interviewed Dr. Paul in person a few days earlier. I understand all three are Free Staters and at least one is a resident of Keene, New Hampshire. Diggable at: http://digg.com/politics/Ron_Paul_intervie..._in_Mississippi
  5. New Hampshire judge issues apparently tongue-in-cheek sentence to civilly disobedient liberty activist. Plz Digg at: http://digg.com/politics/NH_pot_dissident_gets_420_fine
  6. A New Hampshire liberty activist's exclusive video of the infamous "right to record" arrest at Keene District Court. Diggable at: http://digg.com/politics/Photog_arrest_spa...urdling_screams
  7. Arrested for attempting to videotape authorities outside a courtroom...indie journalist Sam Dodson phones in his horrific story from a New Hampshire jail. But is the American media more interested in Iranian scandals than abuses right here at home? Copy of coverage in the local mainstream paper: http://freekeene.com/2009/04/14/mass-arres...inel/#more-1767
  8. 2nd New Hampshirite arrested for attempting to videotape in court lobby.

  10. a lot of defeatism on this board however it's true the authorities are powerful best weapon against them is the video camera
  11. Author Mary Ruwart, PhD, has just defeated the biggest name in pro-freedom politics. But don't worry, Ron Paul won't be leaving office anytime soon - only his publication has been bested. Dr. Ruwart's "Healing Our World" has narrowly vanquished Dr. Paul bestseller "The Revolution: A Manifesto." It wins FreedomBookClub.com's first annual "Book of the Year" award for 2008. "Ruwart's book is a tremendous achievement," says Jeremy Furbish, who runs Freedom Book Club: "It shows how we hurt ourselves when we aggress against our neighbors through the guns of government." "Healing" lays out a pro-liberty vision, describing how society *could* look if we were to remove the initiation of force...the force of taxation, of victimless crime laws, of aggressive warfare and gun control. Furbish says its emotional impact tipped the scales in a tight race between the two books for first place. Furbish says he was especially moved by the book's afterward. In it Ruwart outlines government's role in damaging her sister's health. "I actually wept when I read this section," he says. Dying of cancer, Ruwart's sister ultimately turned to Jack "Dr. Death" Kevorkian, who illegally helped her end her life. Dr. Ruwart grew up in Michigan and holds a Ph.D from Michigan State University in biophysics (1974). She worked as a pharmaceutical researcher for over twenty years and serves on the board of ISIL, the International Society for Individual Liberty. She's also a Fully Informed Jury Association activist, working to help remind jurors of their right to ignore judge's instructions when rendering a verdict. In 2008 she ran for the Libertarian Party's presidential nomination but lost to Georgia congressman Bob Barr. Other books considered for the prize: "How Capitalism Saved America," by Thomas J. DiLorenzo; "Empire of Debt," by William Bonner and Addison Wiggin, "A Foreign Policy of Freedom," by Dr. Paul...and a lone fictional tite: F. Paul Wilson's "By the Sword." "Healing" has sold out twice on Amazon.com. The book's currently available in three editions, each one updated for its times. The 2003 version won this award and is available at Amazon. The first (1993) edition is downloadable for free at: http://Ruwart.com/Healing To weigh in on the next "battle of the books" head to http://FreedomBookClub.com
  12. Adorned with bowie knives, pistols and peaceful exasperation...Conservatives and freedom activists swarm the New Hampshire legislature demanding passage of a warning to Washington. This bill would declare the union nullified if the central government commits certain abuses.
  13. Pandemonium at New Hampshire state house as hundreds of irate liberty activists surge into the chamber. They're supporting a "nullification" resolution which some call the first step to secession. The story, however, begins outside...

  15. Thanks Adam. We are talking about standing for *her* now when she enters the room.
  16. New Hampshire's Free Staters started the armed litter pickups. But now other states are "picking up" on this gun-friendly charitable trend, thanks to the Ron Paul meetup groups. Diggable version at: http://digg.com/politics/Open_carry_litter...thnx_2_Ron_Paul
  17. New Hampshire student claims victory over government school, but not before it allegedly lays hands on her. Also she is a Free Stater; Free Staters are people who move to NH for more freedom. You can digg it at: http://digg.com/politics/Pledge_refuser_sa..._make_her_stand
  18. Any attempt at secession will be crushed by the armed might of the U.S. Government. The issue of secession and nullification was settled definitively by the bloodiest war in U.S. history, the Civil War. Ba'al Chatzaf That's a might-makes-right argument. Which means it is not an argument but more of a threat. Here's the latest on New Hampshire's secessionistic bill: NH secessionists expect sizable rally A secession-leaning bill goes before the New Hampshire House March 4. Its proponents announce a major demonstration for the same day. This last time something like this happened here it was a longshot fight to prohibit Real ID...and it succeeded.

  19. From RidleyReport.com New Hampshire reps try to draw new lines in the sand against expected Obama gun laws.
  20. From RidleyReport.com - New Hampshire citizens acquire an official new tool for "battling bad bureaucrats."
  21. From RidleyReport.com Libertarian radio host Ian Freeman...says the great thing about civil disobedience is that you win when the government ignores you, and win faster when it attacks you. Now we get our chance to prove the last half of this sentence true, for the government is attacking Freeman on the most bizarre of grounds.
  22. Wolfeboro resident Chris Gronsky says he's a citizen of New Hampshire, not the U.S. And he says he got a U.S. passport using that claim.
  23. Curious mainstream reporters drop by to get a look at Free Staters' fourth open-carry litter pickup event in New Hampshire. But how are locals and media reacting to the site of so many holstered weapons?
