 Liberty Conspiracy - 5-2-13 Updated: Slate Magazine's Perpetuation of Fallacy That Gubment Can Suspend Rights "In Exigent Circumstances" | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2246

Includes more material. Apologies for the shortened pod earlier on 5-2. We have noticed that since the suspension of the Bill of Rights during the search for the Boston Marathon suspects, many pop media members have been working hard to construct all kinds of seedy rationales to tell you that it's perfectly fine for government to crush liberties in order to answer 'exigent circumstances". This is not only incorrect, the activity of these so-called "journalists" is immoral and sick. Here is the Liberty Conspiracy refutation of Slate. A short production, concentrating on just this topic, with music by Oggy and the Stooges "Down on the Street", Killing Joke "Millennium", Love Spit Love "Little Fist" and The Damned "I Just Can't Be Happy Today"! Be Seeing You!

We hope you like the approach. In this program, we welcome fellow Conspirator Tyrin Price, who joined host El G Grande to offer his thoughts on the failure of the state to protect people in Boston, the rationales for the bombings that the attackers constructed in their angry minds, and the ease with which police state swept into the area and crushed the US Constitution.

We open with Schtum "Big, Big City", then hear Soul Coughing "Super Bon-Bon", then offer Muse: "Plug-in Baby", then hear The Mummies' "You Must Fight to Live (on the Planet of the Apes)" and close things off with the New Bomb Turks "Gotta, Gotta Sinking Feeling" Be Seeing You!

 Liberty Conspiracy - 4-25-13 - Gard and Guest Soph on Boston Bombings, Police Failures, Rights, Thatcher Funeral | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2876

The title says it all. A special production not broadcast on the show, getting the British POV on these issues that are on the minds of many liberty-loving people. Hope you can visit our site, www.libertyconspiracy.com and that you'll look into the music of the Furs and the Buzzcocks. We feature "I Wanna Sleep with You" by the Psychedelic Furs, and "I Believe" by the Buzzcocks. About forty minutes of pro-liberty music and conversation. Be Seeing You!

 Liberty Conspiracy - 4-23-13 Libertarian Views of Boston Bombing, Government Response with Guest Brett Veinotte | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 6128

In this program, we welcome our friend Brett Veinotte, the founder of the School Sucks Project, and the man behind School Sucks Podcasts and the School Sucks videos on Youtube (and elsewhere). Brett and Gardner Goldsmith discuss many of their thoughts about the inability of various government agencies to protect people from terrorist attacks, and the manner in which police and politicians responded to the Boston attacks. They also talk about the conspiracy theories, and how hard it is getting to poo-poo all the theories, especially when one looks at the terrible things the US government (and others) have done to create False Flag situations, and to hide their mistakes or lack of initiative to stop real terror attacks. We hope you like this one. We think it's very worthwhile. Music? Well, as Gard mentions, the first cut is from the Fixx's first album, "Shuttered Room". It's called "The Strain". The whole album is great. Next... a little touch of Killing Joke (the end of "War Dance"), A hint of WIRE "Agfers of Kodak", Love Spit Love with The Prisoner (the song is "More Than Money"), The Cocteau Twins (singing in Gaelic here) with "Lorelei", Clutch "The Soapmakers", Agent Provocateur "Red Tape", Suicidal Tendencies "Institutionalized", The Sons of Liberty "When in the Course" and The Horrors "Who Can Say" Visit us at www.libertyconspiracy.com Visit Brett at www.schoolsucksproject.com Brett's vids: https://www.youtube.com/user/SchoolSucksPodcast Many thanks to Brett!

 Liberty Conspiracy - 4-16-13 The Boston Marathon Bombings: Liberty v Promises of Security | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 5816

With an appreciation for the people in the city who died, suffered, who survived, we who cherish liberty look at the murderous attack on the attendees at the Boston Marathon. Gardner Goldsmith is joined by Furb, founder of the Freedom Book Club. They look at something that has been mentioned at the Liberty Conspiracy website, which we will cut and paste here: Homeland Security has not stopped one terrorist event. And after holding off on any political analysis, I started to think about the vulnerability one feels in a public place like Boston, an event like that... And the literal impossibility of true security that even the most dedicated police officers and politicians can try to provide. That area near the finish line is one of the most policed areas in any sporting/live/public event in the world. Yet this happened. It makes me consider the question framed thus: One might think about the percentage of cops per thousands on that street. At what level of officers/people does one think that there would have been a different outcome? I say that with no rancor towards anyone's beliefs, but just as a matter of reality. If killers wanted to kill, even a thousand more cops couldn't have stopped it. You can construct bicycles with pipe bombs in their frames and park them places. You can infiltrate the piping of the stands and tents and replace sections with pipes loaded with explosives. you can detonate bombs planted high up, loaded with metals to cause terrible damage. And all this brings me back to one insight, which is that there are (most often) reasons for terrorist acts. What are they? I won't sound "bleeding heart" when I say that, as a mathematical construct, if one cannot really stop terrorists who are hell bend on killing, then can one try to reduce the likelihood that people will be inspired to kill? Many killers don't have reasons inspired by things we can pinpoint as triggers, but many do. If this turns out to be a case of political terrorism, and we know it's impossible (or close to it) for the political machine to be big enough to stop this, then what does one do to try to reduce the likelihood of people wanting to kill for political reasons, such as disliking what the US does in the Middle East, etc? Our music comes from bands that began in Boston, and includes: The Zulus "Directly from our Hearts to Yours", The Pixies "Debaser" (as we have noted, the Pixies used to open for the Zulus, and even they said the Zulus were the best band in the city), DMZ (the precursor to Lyres) "Bad Attitude", Big Dipper "Easter Eve", Mission of Burma "That's When I Reach for My Revolver", Morphine "Thursdays" (RIP Mark Sandman), Human Sexual Response (the forerunner to The Zulus) "Blow Up" (yes, music didacts, we adjusted the volume where it loses some VUs, and you know where that happens if you know Boston music!), The Zulus "Gotta Have Faith", and Eli Paperboy Reed (great New Soul singer originally from Brookline, MA) "Stake Your Claim".

 Liberty Cospiracy - 4-11-13 Two Views on the Passing of Margaret Thatcher | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3981

Welcome back to another portable production for liberty. In this program, specially recorded for our podcast audience and not broadcast on the radio program, Gardner Goldsmith talks to fellow Conspirator Soph about the death and political life of Margaret Thatcher. Why do so many British citizens loath her, even after her death? What did she do wrong? What did she do right? How do her policies stack up for those of us who believe in the sovereignty of the individual and voluntary association? Listen and you will see how some left-leaning Brits see Maggie's legacy... With music by Iggy Pop "Repo Man" and (as requested by Soph), The Smiths "How Soon Is Now?" Join us at www.libertyconspiracy.com ! Be Seeing You!

 Our Prediction Post Heller Decision Has Come True - Feds Use It As Excuse to Invade Rights | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 5819

When the US Supreme Court issued its decision in the Heller case (Dick Heller was a DC resident who sued over the District's restrictions on the 2nd Amendment) many so-called "conservatives" and "small government libertarians" and "Constitutionalists" cheered. We did not. In his conclusion to the majority opinion Antonin Scalia did something very bad to the English language and to the definition of the word "right". Find out why our observation of this bad precedent, and our predictions about that error were prescient, and why it has a bearing on all future debates over all rights, not solely the right to self-defense. Can you believe that a politically appointed judge actually implied that the right to self-defense can be attenuated? Listen, and you'll see! We have that AND a visit from fellow Conspirator Malcolm, who offers his thoughts on Diane Feinstein, St. Patrick's Day, and more! Plus music by Vintage Trouble, Leogun, and Grinderman! No songs listed in this case, because we'd like you to investigate the bands and buy some of their stuff! Be Seeing You!
