An estimated 300 people converged in front of City Hall in Manchester this Saturday to protest President-elect Donald Trump’s victory in last week’s presidential election. The gathering mirrors similar public demonstrations in cities across the U.S. that have taken place over the last several days.

The Manchester rally was launched by area resident Mary-Clare Auger, who had voted for Hillary Clinton in the presidential election. Like many Clinton supporters, she was upset that President-elect Trump had been allocated more electoral votes than Clinton despite the former Secretary of State having received more popular votes. “I just wanted people to know that they weren’t alone in their dissatisfaction with how the election ended,” said Auger.

Free State Supporter Shot Over Flag, Dems Exploit for Political Gain

fsp-flag

A friend of the Free State Project was shot in Manchester over a dispute regarding the Project’s flag, and NH Democratic Party leadership capitalized on the incident for political gain.

Jarrod Ean-Dixon, longtime New Hampshire resident and a supporter of the Free State Project, was shot in an altercation over the Free State Project’s flag. The flag (pictured left), which is a play off of the Gadsden Flag, features a porcupine instead of a snake, along with the famous motto: “Don’t tread on me.” The porcupine is the symbol of the Free State Project due to its docile and defensive nature paired with its willingness to defend against aggressors when cornered. Ean-Dixon was at a social gathering where the flag was prominently displayed, and two guests engaged in a dispute with him, considering the altered porcupine version of the flag to be disrespectful. An altercation ensued and Ean-Dixon was shot multiple times.

At time of writing, Ean-Dixon remains in critical condition but is expected to survive. The two assailants are in police custody. [Read more…]

Trump Part of Dem Plan to Brand GOP as Bigoted

The Democratic Party has a long-term plan to undermine the Republican Party as bigoted and extreme, including promoting a Donald Trump candidacy.

According to leaked emails released by Wikileaks, the Clinton campaign saw the value in branding the opposing party as radical and bigoted in order to make the Democrats seem like the reasonable alternative. Part of that strategy included elevating more outspoken candidates like Donald Trump during the Republican primary in order to enforce that narrative.

In an email to campaign staff, Robby Mook, Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, outlined the party’s greater strategy:

“I think we should just be clear about exactly what news we want to make. Personally, I think branding the GOP as bigoted and extreme is more in line with our bigger picture, long term goals, so I would favor sticking with asking why they didn’t speak out against what [sic] trump.”

US Pulls Out All Stops Against Wikileaks and RT News

Forces allied with the American government have come down hard on its dissenters, cutting off internet access for Wikileaks and closing RT News’s bank accounts.

The public accountability nonprofit has been on precarious ground, with its bank accounts long since closed and its head Julian Assange hiding in the Ecuadorian embassy in London to avoid extradition. Now, Wikileaks reports that Assange’s internet access in the embassy has been cut off, likely out of pressure from the US government in retribution for leaking former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s speeches to bankers:

Ron Paul: Whoever Wins the Election, Gold Goes Up

According to Ron Paul, whoever wins the election in November, gold will be the real victor.

The elder statesman of the libertarian movement and former Republican presidential candidate has remained apathetic about which major presidential candidate claims victory next month. However, he remains convinced that uncertainty will result no matter the outcome of the election, as he told CNBC in an interview:

“Politically speaking, there is going to be a lot more uncertainty and that may go into the markets. If people are depending on political stability to get the market going I don’t think it’s going to work out.”

Free Staters Once Again the Target of Xenophobia

porc

Free Staters have once again found themselves targeted by scare-mongering political adversaries.

In a letter to the editor to the Concord Monitor, government employee and hardcore Democrat Gloria Andrews singled out Dr. Darren Tapp and Brian Seaworth, Chichester and Pembroke candidates for some of the 400 seats in New Hampshire’s House of Representatives, as threats to the state. Aside from a brief mention of Seaworth’s support for removing the governor’s ability to declare a state of emergency, Andrews focuses her entire letter on the “otherness” quality of the two candidates rather than their actual policy positions: they’re radicals meant to push an “extreme anti-government agenda.” [Read more…]
