giuliani_reporter_arrested_on_orders_of_giuliani_press_sec.htm

Matt Lepacek had valid CNN press credentials and was doing freelance reporting according to InfoWars.com. He asked Adolf Giuliani some inconvenient questions about the events of 9/11/01.

Thereupon, Adolf Giuliani’s reichsminister of propaganda press secretary had the gestapo state police rough up Lepacek and fellow reporter Luke Rudkowski.

He said police physically assaulted both reporters after Rudkowski objected that they were official members of the press and that nothing illegal had taken place. Police reportedly damaged the Infowars-owned camera in the process.

Furthermore,

Though CNN staff members tried to persuade police not to arrest the accredited reporter– in violation of the First Amendment, Lepacek was taken to jail. The police station told JonesReport.com that Lepacek is being charged with felony criminal trespass.

According to Rudkowski, Lepacek was scared because he had been told he may be transferred to a secret detention facility because state police were also considering charges of espionage against him– due to a webcam Lepacek was using to broadcast live at the event. State police considered it to be a hidden camera, which led to discussion of “espionage.”

Wearing a webcam at a press event is not an act of espionage.

The state police in Goffstown, New Hampshire, where the arrest was made, confirmed that Lepacek is in custody on charges of criminal trespass.

These are blatant violations of the First Amendment:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Actions like this would be more appropriate in the Third Reich, a
communist nation, or perhaps Italy under Mussolini. A clue, perhaps, as to what awaits America if this moral leper of an authoritarian dirtbag thug is allowed to stink up the white house the way he did Gracie mansion?

We look upon authority too often and focus over and over again, for 30 or 40 or 50 years, as if there is something wrong with authority. We see only the oppressive side of authority. Maybe it comes out of our history and our background. What we don’t see is that freedom is not a concept in which people can do anything they want, be anything they can be. Freedom is about authority. Freedom is about the willingness of every single human being to cede to lawful authority a great deal of discretion about what you do.

Kent McManigalFormer LP presidential candidate (now a write-in candidate) Kent McManigal is engaged in a very interesting forum conversation with some folks from France who took an interest in his views and his campaign.

Here’s a taste of the questions they asked Kent:

Political fiction, again. You’re at the White House. Iran just acquired nuclear weapons, with abilities to launch them to Europe’s doors. It now threatens to launch one on Tel-Aviv if the Israelis don’t evacuate the territory under 48 hours. As the Commander in Chief, what do you do?

Ask Israel if they would like to purchase some nuclear weapons from America. Once again, America must stop interfering in world affairs, even when it seems like a good idea. It is a “slippery slope” to start down. Where does it end? There would be nothing to stop private American citizens from offering to aid in the evacuation, or to take steps to disable Iran’s weapons on their own, without government sanction or assistance, if they choose to do so.

What assessment do you make of George W. Bush’s presidency, and on which points will you be inspired or distance yourself from him ?

I think he has been a typical US President: an out-of-control megalomaniac. He has worked tirelessly to increase the strength and reach of the US government in America and across the world. He has violated the Constitution and Bill of Rights on a daily basis, which is treason. I would not be like him (or any other previous President) in any way.

Could you tell me about you day of September the 11th, 2001 ?

I was at work when the attacks happened. When the second plane hit the World Trade Center I knew it was not an accident. I quickly realized that once again, our government had helped kill many people. (If the people on the planes had been allowed to be armed, hi-jackers would not have had a chance. They were required by law to be victims.) I was angry that anyone had decided to kill so many innocent people. I was afraid that the US government would use the tragedy as an excuse to destroy more freedom in America.

What are, according to you, the 21st century’s greatest stakes, and how to face them ?

Government is working hard to incite hatred across national boundaries, and among economic classes. Fear and distrust of those different from yourself must be resisted. This in itself will take much power away form governments worldwide.

We were all marked by historical events. What are yours ?

When the US government murdered the Branch Davidians in Waco, Texas, my eyes were opened completely for the first time. I had not trusted government before, but had not seen it for the inexcusable evil it really is until that event.

What is your “vision of America” ?

I would really like for America to once again be the beacon of Liberty for the rest of the world, as symbolized by the French peoples’ gift: Liberty Enlightening the World.

You can read the rest of it, or join the forum to talk to Kent and others, here. Luckily, the vast majority of it seems to be written in English, and it’s a very interesting read.

hat tip Michelle Shinghal

Now, anyone who has not just gotten here just now knows I’m supporting Steve Kubby for President. You know I have some issue position differences with Ron Paul. But, I’m endorsing Ron Paul for reelection to Congress, and I love what he is doing in the Republican debates.

Speaking of Republican debates, we will be providing live coverage at Last Free Voice tonight. I’ve heard a rumor that Michelle and TG might show up drunk, and there may or may not be trampolines involved. You won’t want to miss it!

So, to sum it up: until Steve can start showing up on the Daily Show, I’m damn glad and proud to see 1988 Libertarian Party Presidential Candidate Ron Paul on there. Here’s the clip:

And here is Michelle, doing her part by offering some high profile advertising:

Also useful as a floatation device, this kewl and handy billboard has many useful and even life saving properties.

Since Stuart mentioned the Outright Libertarians interview with George Phillies, here is their interview with Steve Kubby, from their blog.

Unlike the problem with immigration that Stuart mentioned in George’s answers, Steve’s were traditionally libertarian down the line.

Read the interview after the jump.
