This week, we look at the devastating property re-evaluations that will result in property tax hikes under Joyce Craig (vote for Victoria Sullivan in the primary on 9/21!). Tammy analyzes actual hospitalization rates in NH and finds–huge surprise!–they’re nowhere near full, they’re not even at 20%. Also: watch this episode to see the best joke Carla has told on air!
This is alarming, but not wrong.
Check out the real-time video below, and here are some first hand accounts from health freedom activists who attended.
“There is power in numbers, and we saw that in Concord today!
The NH DHHS had scheduled a hearing for public comments regarding proposed changes to the [vaccine] registry.
They didn’t expect us to show up like we did, you guys. We filled every seat in the auditorium and there was an overflow of people in the hallways.
They told us that the room was “at capacity” and that no one else would be allowed in. There were individuals standing in the room, and they were told they would need to leave. There were two officers present.
WE SAID NO.
They tried to bargain with us and said that they would hold a second meeting another day for those who couldn’t come inside this afternoon.
WE SAID NO.
People took off work, people got childcare, people drove 30, 60, 90 minutes to show up for this. We weren’t going to just leave those people in the hallway, or tell them to come back. We demanded a bigger room so that all in attendance could be included! We demanded public access for all!
We chanted, we sang, we pledged allegiance to the flag. We were not going anywhere and we were not backing down. We would not submit or comply. We’ve seen where that gets us, haven’t we? Enough is enough. The people in the hallway began to file in and fill the room.
And what happened next? The meeting was canceled! Was it a waste of time? No, not at all. Without the public hearing, they cannot vote on the proposed changes. This buys us more time.
They said they will be rescheduling, and it will be held in a bigger venue next time – as requested! We all need to show up (and bring a friend) when that date and time is announced! Stay tuned.
Everybody who was there today, thank you and well done. I am so proud to stand with all of you. Let’s show up again, and make our voices heard! #PowertothePeople”
HERE is coverage from legacy news.
Tonight on Rock Paper Hand Grenades, Joshua Solomon and I are going to be talking with the indomitable Carla Gericke about, what the hell is going on?
My friend, Werner Buchner, was shot and killed for two cell phones and some cash. His wife, my dear friend, Estelle, broke both her arms in the struggle and remains hospitalized. Their son, Werner Jnr, is recovering after surgery and is in stable condition.
Two cell phones and some cash.
I am in shock. Louis and Werner went to University together. We have known them for more than 30 years. Parties. Weddings. Braais. Louis I visited Boslaagte whenever we made the trip back to South Africa, although we didn’t this last time. This last time, we didn’t manage to swing it, and we didn’t know it would be the last time. The last time to see Werner (55). R.I.P., boet.
Two cell phones and some cash.
How can this be? But this is what civil society on its last legs is: death, unnecessary, untimely, uninvited death. This is what society without laws and with envy, envy, envy at its heart delivers. When you teach people what is yours is theirs, because it’s “unfair” when someone else has more, this is where you ultimately end up.
When Americans ask me about what is happening in South Africa, I usually say things like: They’re trying but… Well, it has rolling blackout on a daily basis now. Well, it has 6 of the 20 most dangerous cities in the world now. Well, it has more than 30% unemployment now. Well, it has rioting and looting and lawlessness now. Well, it has farm murders, and it has people on tellie saying, “Kill the settler, kill the boere [farmers], one bullet, one settler.”
Werner was a farmer.
Werner was a father.
Werner was a husband.
Werner was a friend.
Werner was a good, God-fearing, DECENT man.
This malaise, this disease of socialism, tribalism, racism, this never-ending manipulation of the minds of the malleable must end. This spreading of the lies that property rights don’t matter and what is not yours, can be, without any effort, just for the taking, must end. This devolving of the world into darkness and lawlessness must end. This disregard for the lives of our fellow humans must end. This lie that you can live at the expense of others must end. This senseless, baseless killing must end.
But it didn’t end soon enough for my friend. Cry, the beloved country. Today, I cry with you.
Watch this VIDEO to see “the farm that freedom built. Where the pigs are fat and the libertarians are happy.”
This video is five years old and, as I said on Facebook when I re-shared it recently:
Wow! This is actually extremely p.a.i.n.f.u.l for me to watch from a “Holy hell, I was not well, AKA ‘what the fatty fat???'” perspective, but the principles of liberty and freedom I express are still spot on.
The reality is: If you don’t like something about yourself, CHANGE. It is UP TO YOU. No one else can do it for you. Only YOU are responsible for your health and wellbeing. (That realization is Step #1.)
I was unhealthy and anxious, and several years ago, I decided to do something about it. I changed my diet (ancestral/keto/low carb), quit alcohol, reintroduced my yoga practice, made sleeping a priority, started fasting, and through meditation and mindful journaling, learned how to evolve past an unmoored childhood to become someone *I* like and respect. I wanted to return to the person I was: healthy, sporty, ambitious, effective, and happy (with a little “wild and beautiful” thrown in for good measure!). So I did.
You can read about my journey here, but watch this clip to learn more about what Free Staters are trying to accomplish in NH. Our message is even more important NOW–as medical tyranny arises around us–than it was 5 years ago!
Eight years ago today: press conference to decry the government’s militarization of our local police. They now also have encrypted secret communications, making law abiding citizens less safe, and have added drones to their arsenal. They used BEARCATS and ramming rods and drones to attack peaceful activists in Keene earlier this year… As our freedoms are crushed under the boot of the emerging police state, and as they lay claim to your body and say they can force you to do things against your will, remember the people who have been warning you for more than a decade AND offering solutions: Free Staters like me!
