Live Update from the Silk Road Trial | World Crypto Network

Published by:

At the conclusion of day 1 of the Ross Ulbricht Trial, John Bush gives a live recap of what went down inside the courthouse. I livestreamed from my phone for the World Crypto Network and also uploaded high quality videos on my youtube channel.

Livestream:

Day 1, Recap Part 1:

Day 1, Recap Part 2:

Unfortunately, this video is all that I captured. The judge threatened to sequester the jury if demonstrations continued outside the courthouse, and Lyn Ulbricht (Ross’ mom) asked me to stop. So I went home. Sad.

Tom Woods Interviews Derrick J on Ross Ulbricht Silk Road Trial

Published by:

I was honored to be a guest on the Tom Woods Show podcast recently. We discussed the facts surrounding the trial of the decade: USA v Ross Ulbricht. Ross faces life in prison for victimless crimes stemming from his participation with the website Silk Road, an online black marketplace where people bought and sold drugs (mostly pot). I organized an event to peacefully demonstrate outside the courthouse where Ross will be put on trial. Other activists from around the country will be converging on Manhattan to report on the story and also to do Jury Nullification outreach. Listen to the interview here:

Thanks for having me on, Tom!

Jim Jesus Calls FTL on Moly!

Published by:

Jim Jesus takes up a minor beef with Derrick J for his recent blog post in defense of Stefan Molyneux.

Jim points out that Stefan himself claims a person can ignore a philosopher who doesn’t follow his own advice. This is troubling because Stefan calls the state an immoral institution but then uses the state and advocates obedience. My contention is that this apparent contradiction is the result of Stefan’s fear of the State — that he is unwilling to suffer for the philosophy of liberty the way Ian Freeman of Free Talk Live is. I speculate that is why he is philosophically inconsistent when it comes to using and obeying State agents.

What do *you* think? Am I dead wrong? Is Stefan a cult leader whose power has clouded his thinking? Share your thoughts in the comments section below!

SHOCK! Judge Burke Upholds KPD Decision: “Unsuitable” to Concealed Carry

Published by:

burkeLocal government bureaucrats in Keene are infringing on my right to bear arms.

In July I applied for a concealed carry license. One man, Ken Meola, denied it. I appealed, and this week the news came back: Judge Burke denied my appeal.

Judge Burke’s decision means that while it is perfectly legal for me to carry a firearm openly, it is a crime for me to conceal that firearm, for example by putting on a winter jacket.

The next step is to move on to the State Supreme Court. I haven’t decided whether or not I’m going to do that, but I’ll give another update when I speak with my attorney.

I’m disappointed about this decision, but I’m not surprised. The State is a many-tentacled beast, and the different facets of it protect each other. First the legislators did their part by camouflaging a restriction as a right: they call NH “shall issue” but ultimately leave the power of permission to one man working for the police. Then the police did their part to deny my rights, essentially arguing that they are restricting my freedoms because I don’t respect them. Finally, appeals are made to lawyers who also work for the State.

For those who missed it, here is a link to video of the full hearing.

Darryl W Perry Released from Jail

Darryl, Outside the Keene Spiritual Retreat

Darryl W Perry walked into the Cheshire County House of Corrections this Friday. He walked out today, Monday. However, according to Mr Perry, he was not corrected.

Darryl was sentenced $163 in fines for the offenses of “Residency” and “Operating a Vehicle That is Not Registered”. What that means in plain English is that Darryl has a valid driver’s license in Arizona, but the State of New Hampshire alleges that Darryl is a resident of New Hampshire and must change his license over to New Hampshire.

New Hampshire law specifies that an inhabitant is not necessarily a resident, and Darryl asserts that he is not a resident. Therefore, he is not required to apply for a new license. Even if he wanted to, Darryl points out that he lacks the documents the State needs to prove residency. Even if he were able to acquire the forms and signatures necessary, he still wouldn’t be granted a new license because he has a warrant out of South Carolina (also for victimless crimes).

Darryl kept his spirits high throughout the experience. He had a celebratory lunch before going in and plans to have a celebratory supper now that he is out. Darryl produces a daily podcast and content at http://FPP.cc
